Hunter loses hair to

honour best mate

• By Julia Evans

TYLER MOORE would’ve thought the

head shave by his best mate would have been

“epicer than epic”.

On Friday, Tyler’s mate Hunter Allen, 9,

had his head shaved to raise funds for the

Child Cancer Foundation – the disease which

claimed Tyler 18 months ago.

It was an

emotional moment

for Hunter and

Tyler’s parents –

more so because it

was Tyler’s mother

Sarah Moore who

shaved Hunter’s

head.

Tyler’s younger

sister Hannah who

is four was also

present, watching

Tyler Moore

from her dad’s lap.

To add to the

emotion, the hall where Hunter’s head was

shaved was where Tyler’s funeral was held.

“He would’ve been so proud of his friend,”

Mrs Moore said.

She said it was very special but a very

emotional thing to go through.

The boys met through their mothers but

hit it off when playing Lego, Minecraft and

having Nerf wars.

Tyler was four-and-a-half when he went to

his parents complaining of pain and doctors

found the cancerous tumour on his bladder.

His father Micheal Moore said it was the size

of a big potato and doctors said it was probably

something that had always been there.

After 18 months of tough treatment and

the all clear, Tyler relapsed and the doctor

said there was nothing further they could do.

He passed away two months before his

seventh birthday.

Tyler was a courageous boy who took it all

in his stride, Mrs Moore said.

She said they went on a few family

holidays and tried to do a lot of

special things with him before he

passed.

Hunter announced to the

Cotswold School assembly that

he was nervous just as hair started

falling to the ground.

But once it was gone, he couldn’t stop

rubbing his head, he said it felt like it was

made of pins and needles.

Hunter’s mother Cara Allen said he

loves his hair, he was playing with it

right up until the shaving.

The idea came to Hunter more than a

year ago but initially he was just going to

shave his head.

Ms Allen came up with the idea of doing

it as part of the foundation’s awareness week

and Hunter has now raised more than

$2000 and counting – his initial target

was only $800.

She said Tyler was part of

the family so there was not

a tribute more fitting.

“There’s always a

special place in our

hearts for Tyler,” she

said.

IT IS a hard thing indeed to

watch someone lose their battle to

cancer.

But imagine being an eightyear-old

and watching your best

mate only a year younger than

yourself succumb to the horrid

disease.

That is the story about Hunter

Allen and his mate Tyler Moore.

Like so many kids, they met

through their mothers and shared

a love of games such as Lego,

Minecraft. But then cancer came

along and claimed Tyler.

Last week, Hunter had his head

shaved this week in honour of his

friend. It was made even more

special, that the person holding

the clippers was Tyler’s mum, Sarah

Moore, and it was done in the

hall where the funeral was held.

I’ve no shame in admitting it

brought a tear to the eye. Hunter,

you are a champ.

Community battles graffiti

City councillor

Sara

Templeton

talks about the

city’s graffiti

problem,

particularly in

St Albans, and

how the community has

responded to it

It wasn’t long after the

earthquakes in 2011 that our

city had a sudden rise in graffiti.

Damaged and vacant buildings

were ripe for tagging and our

public spaces became targets for

vandals.

This was true in Heathcote

Valley where I live, as it was

across the city. So a group of

us called the city council and

joined the graffiti volunteers

programme Off the Wall. Supplied

with hi-vis, brushes and

paint, we kept on top of the

local problem, reporting it for

removal by contractors when we

couldn’t do the work ourselves.

The problem soon tapered off as

taggers realised that their marks

weren’t going to stay around for

long, and it’s stayed pretty good

since then.

Graffiti is a problem – it damages

property and makes local

residents feel less safe in their

community. Quick removal is the

key, so reporting it for removal

as soon as it’s seen is important.

Conversely, the graffiti that is left

attracts more graffiti, and we see

this time and time again.

City council can remove graffiti

on road boundary fences,

lamp posts and other similar

public places, but the green

roadside cabinets are looked after

by their owners – Chorus, Orion

or others and the city council

can’t remove graffiti on private

buildings. City council will pass

on the details if you call, but

contacting the company directly

will have a quicker result.

City council does an annual

graffiti survey and the results

are striking. In 2013, there were

11,592 tags spotted and, in 2016,

GRAFFITI: St Albans is the

worst suburb across the

city for graffiti alongside the

central city.

only 1591 tags were seen across

the city during the same period.

Interestingly, reported graffiti

has gone up over the same time,

coinciding with the introduction

of the Snap Send Solve app

and accepting complaints about

graffiti on private property. These

complaints are registered on our

books, but the removal request is

forwarded to the owner.

We have more than 1000

fantastic volunteers helping keep

their communities graffiti-free,

but you don’t have to join to help

out. Call 941 8999 to report it, or

use the Snap Send Solve app on

your phone.

My favourite saying is apt here

– “I used to think that somebody

should do something about that;

then I realised that I was somebody.”

Aren’t we all?

Readers respond to Ali

Jones’ Soapbox in last

week’s Nor’West News

about roadworks in St

Albans

Vanessa Pollock – Been

frustrating but I know it’s called

for. Also, I’m sure traffic has got

very heavy around the Cranford

St, Innes Rd, St Albans area with

Winters Rd cut off now.

Jenna-Louise Crothers

– It’s only frustrating when the

workers are standing around

not doing anything. The stop-go

dude was on his cell phone the

other night. Traffic both ways.

Give the job to someone who

wants to work.

Readers respond to city

councillor Aaron Keown’s

Soapbox on funding for an

upgrade of the Gardiners,

Breens and Harewood Rds

intersection not being included

in the city council’s

draft Annual Plan.

Miles Dalton – It sounds

like the process is working well.

Instead of spending money on

one person’s vanity project, the

money is spent on the basis of

actual facts. Aaron Keown needs

to understand that being elected

does not put him in charge, it

makes him part of a group of

decision makers.

Anthony Nixon – Turning

bays will not improve safety

for the primary and intermediate

school children who cross

Harewood Rd every morning at

rush hour. There is a lot going

on in that area, including lots of

heavy traffic that moves very fast

up and down Harewood Rd past

that intersection (they are often

breaking the speed limit).

Playground plans to go ahead

• By Julia Evans

PLAYGROUND upgrades at

a suburban park are set to go

ahead in spite of a community

group lobbying against them.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

approved the $150,000 upgrades

to the Abberley Park playground

that will see it take up twice the

amount of space it is now.

But Friends of Abberley Park,

a volunteer

group that does

maintenance

around the

park, were

against the concept.

They lost

Aaron Keown

their bid to see

the footprint of

the playground

move in order to take up less of

the park’s green space.

The board decided to stick

with the original upgrade

plans approved last year by the

Shirley/Papanui Community

Board.

City council staff, councillor

Aaron Keown and the group

met at the park after a deputation

was made to the board in

order to see if they could find a

compromise.

Steven Gray went back to the

group with a proposed change

to the upgrade.

The playground had been

moved 12m to the west to save

some of the park’s versatile

greenspace that was to be taken

up by the new equipment.

The plans were presented

to members of Friends of

Abberley Park who said they

were satisfied with the new

proposal.

“It entirely won over the last

friends who had remained dubious,”

the group said.

However, at their last meeting

the board moved to maintain

the status quo by supporting

the initial plan approved by the

Shirley/Papanui board.

City councillor Jamie Gough

voted against the motion and

fellow city councillor Aaron

Keown said he thought the matter

was coming back for further

discussion.

The secondary consultation

worried members of the old

Shirley/Papanui board who

did not want to see the project

delayed any further.

City councillor and former

board member Pauline Cotter

said it had a very robust and

thorough consultation process

last year.

“The existing equipment is beyond

its use-by date and safety

quota so we really need to get on

with it,” she said.

Friends of Abberley Park

said it is disappointed with the

outcome.

It said it hopes to grow in

strength so it can be heard when

issues around paddling pool

retention are eventually raised.

PEDESTRIAN safety has been

prioritised for Grampian St in

Casebrook.

The installation of two refuge

islands between Jocelyn St and

Veitches Rd was approved by the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board at its last

meeting.

The upgrades come off the

back of several complaints from

residents regarding cars speeding

down the wide and straight

street.

Narrowing road markings

will create a natural desire for

drivers to slow down, alongside

the proposed pedestrian islands

and no-stopping restrictions, city

council staff said.

More than 100 leaflets were

hand delivered to residents

and businesses in Jocelyn and

Grampian Sts between Veitches

from a city council press

release.

However, the funds are not

related to the permanent facility

but are coming from a budget

set aside for the relocation of a

temporary facility.

and Calridges Rds .

Staff received feedback

on the proposal from three

organisations including the

AA, Canterbury District

Health Board and Christchurch

Disability group, which all

supported the upgrade.

Five residents also provided

feedback, including one petition

containing seven signatories, all

of who opposed the proposal but

acknowledged speeding vehicles

are a problem.

One resident said refuge

islands were not suitable to cross

with their guide dog and they

would need a signalised crossing

to be installed.

The project will be carried

out under the city council’s

Safety Improvements

Programme and is estimated to

cost $66,530.

Delicious buffet on offer in

popular family restaurant

The buffet at the Sequoia Restaurant in The Redwood is an all-time favourite with

The buffet at the Sequoia Restaurant in

The Redwood is an all-time favourite with

Christchurch people and visitors to the city,

who come to enjoy the huge selection of

food and the warm, friendly environment.

There is something for everyone here. This

is a great place for families to eat and have

fun together. Children don’t have to wait for

the food to arrive and they can eat just what

they like.

Chef Ryu, who is from the Philippines, has

years of experience cooking in restaurants.

He was a Head Chef in his hometown

of Manila for 20 years. After arriving in

Christchurch more than six years ago, Ryu

worked at La Porchetta, and then as a sous

chef at The Old Vicarage in Halswell, before

gaining the role of Head Chef at Sequoia.

Since starting there in early 2016 he has

made huge improvements to the quality and

deliciousness of the food. He takes great

pride in the fact that the dishes are made in

the kitchen from wholesome ingredients.

No MSG is used.

About half the dishes are gluten free plus

there are dairy-free options. “Come for a

treat or come for a healthy meal. The choice

is yours,” Ryu says.

Ryu has also added many choices to the

buffet selection, including the national

Filipino dish, Adobo, made with pork. The

style of cuisine on offer ranges from European

to Asian, Mediterranean to American, and he

gets much of his inspiration from reading

recipes and watching reality TV shows such

as Master Chef.

The customer favourites such as the roast

meats on the carvery, sweet and sour pork

and butter chicken are still there, along with

the beef stroganoff, vegetarian lasagne,

seafood, salmon, chicken pesto pasta and

fresh salads.

The dessert section is amazing!

This has lately been enlarged, with new

desserts added. Cheesecake, banoffee

pie, mini pavlovas, sticky date pudding,

chocolate brownie with chocolate ganache

and raspberry compote are just some of

Chef Ryu checks on the buffet.

the desserts you will find on the buffet – all

decadent and gorgeous!

The spacious Sequoia Restaurant is open

for buffet breakfast and lunch on Saturday

and Sunday, and for dinner every day.

Paul Lonsdale

Merivale’s former city councillor

Paul Lonsdale was

You were a guitarist and

songwriter in the Solatudes,

circa 1980. That must have been

Yes, the original band was

and another guy from school got

had run away from home in

Auckland and was living here.

There ended up being about five

of us in the end, we were like

a family. I liked working with

people that made me laugh.

We did gigs all over town and

200 to 300 people and they were

all paying $5 to $10 each. We’d

get 85 per cent of the door take.

Then you’d get the Hillsborough,

they used to get 900 people out

there sometimes.

Are you still involved in

making music?

Yes, but not as much as I’d like

to. The last six years my work

life’s been horrendous and there’s

been no personal time at all,

It’s a bit better now, but I’m

naughty in my last year and so

my parents wouldn’t let me go to

art school.

I don’t regret anything in

my life really. I talk to a lot of

young people and I always say

to them, get your education.

yourself in a position where you

look back and go, gee, I wasted

quite a bit of time doing that and

I shouldn’t have, I didn’t really

want to do that.

What’s your role here in New

Brighton?

I’ve been brought in to assist

with the regeneration of New

Brighton and help lead local

businesses to a better state than

they’re currently in.

So what’s your vision?

New Brighton has some really

good bones. It obviously suffered

when Saturday shopping was

opened up to the rest of the

city. New Brighton used to be

the only place I think in the

country that you could shop

on a Saturday and, of course,

when Saturday shopping came

in, New Brighton, and the

central city to a degree, didn’t do

anything about trying to change

or consolidate their model. So

when the malls came to power,

the traffic in New Brighton got

less and less. Some shops would

open up and some wouldn’t

and it’s that inconsistency that

started to lead to its demise.

There was a lack of investment

by the landowners and business

owners and, of course, we see the

outcome today.

When do you date that

decline from?

I think Saturday shopping

came in around 1984, so we’re

looking at 30-plus years of

decline. We saw the same

thing in the central city, but

post-earthquake they got a

regeneration plan and I think

there’s a couple of billion dollars

worth of anchor projects given

to it to help lever the rebuild and

reinvestment. New Brighton

needs a smaller version of

that.

helping to rebuild the city’s east

You were the manager of Merivale

Mall from 1999 to 2004 and

instrumental in setting up the Re:Start

mall. What skills have you picked up

that you might see yourself using in

this role?

My management style at Merivale was

quite different, I got heavily involved

with the businesses. I created a lot of

activity, promotions and over a fourand-a-half-year

period I doubled the

centre’s turnover and I increased the

foot traffic by 32 per cent. They thought

I’d be the right person to manage the

centre because I was a retailer myself.

Just getting down on the ground,

working with the retailers. They’d

developed a very negative view of the

world and that was self-fulfilling so their

turnovers weren’t increasing, so it was

about working with them to change

their thinking, change the message that

they were putting across the counter

and working just as hard as they were

to try and boost the business. Over the

four-and-a-half-years, we grew to be like

a big family.

Do you see yourself as quite a handson

person?

Absolutely, and same with Re:Start,

that was very grassroots. Hard work

to get that project off the ground, even

harder to make it successful. Most

people think it was successful straight

away, but it was very hard to get the

confidence back of people here in

Christchurch to come back into the city.

You must be very proud of that

achievement?

Very proud, but you don’t do it alone,

there was a group of us that set out to do

the project. I came up with the idea but

the idea’s only one thing – unless you’ve

got people to help you realise it, it’s just

an idea.

So, do you have any special links to

New Brighton?

I lived here for a couple of years about

12 years ago. As a kid, we used to come

out here to the beach. My brothers and

I used to have a routine on hot days:

We’d go to Jellie Park in the morning,

swim there till about 11am, bus out to

Brighton, go for a swim then back to

Jellie Park. And, of course, as a family

we used to come out here on a Saturday.

I see you’re a former Burnside High

School student. Are you Christchurch

born and bred?

Not quite. I was born in Gore and

moved to Invercargill with my family

when I was four, then moved here when

I was 11. We came up in 1974, when the

Commonwealth Games were on.

Were you at school with John Key?

Not in the same class but the same

year. Don’t remember him at all. I did

play at school assemblies in the band

back then, though, and when we got the

cheque from John Key for Re:Start, I said

we were at the same school, same year.

He said he thought the name rang a

bell. He remembered me from the band

playing.

Small world. So where do you call

home now and who does the cooking?

Just out of central Christchurch. I’ve

been there 10 years and live there with

my wife Denise. It’s a second marriage

so she has a couple of kids (they’ve

left home) and I’ve a got a 17-year-old

daughter at Christchurch Girls’ High.

We share the cooking, I usually do the

meat and my wife does the veges – divvy

up the responsibilities.

You’ve held quite a few communitybased

roles and currently serve on

boards and trusts around the city.

Where does this interest in community

come from?

A friend of mine once said: ‘You just

like getting involved,’ and he’s probably

right.

Must have been a heck of a shock

when you weren’t re-elected to the city

council?

Yes and no. I could have stood in

central and would have won that

without any problem at all. I chose to

stand in that (Heathcote) Ward. I have

my own personal reasons for why I did

that and I knew it would be a trickier job

getting re-elected, but I was willing to

take that risk. I’d done a lot of work out

there you see, and I don’t shy away from

challenges. I’d make the same decision

again.

Do you see yourself standing for

council in the future?

Look, I never say never. You never

know in this life.

Burnside High students

bowl over competition

• By Andrew King

AN INCREASE in the number

of Burnside High School

students playing lawn bowls saw

them take out top spots in the

Canterbury secondary schools

tournament.

The pairing of Chenielle Clark

and Bonnie Taylor won the

tournament, with Sam Wallace

and Adam Hodgson finishing

second and Billy Allan and

Fraser Deavoll third.

Held last week at the

Fendalton Bowling Club on

Makora St, Burnside High

entered five senior pairs’ teams.

Coach Nicola Hawke has been

running the bowls programme

at Burnside for the past three

years and said normally between

three to 10 students sign up, but

this year 23 enrolled.

“Most students are attending

training sessions and

competition games each week,”

she said.

Clark and Taylor will compete

in the South Island secondary

schools tournament on March

29 at the Burnside Bowling

Green.

YOUNG BOWLERS: Bonnie Taylor (left) and Chenielle

Clark won the Canterbury secondary schools lawn bowls

tournament last week. The pair will compete in the South

Island secondary schools tournament on March 29 at the

Burnside Bowling Green.

WINNERS: Rangi Ruru edged rivals St Margaret’s 6-5 in the

secondary schools super touch competition on Wednesday.

Rangi edges old rivals

in tight competition

IN A nail biting final, Rangi

Ruru Girls’ School edged its

old rivals St Margaret’s College

6-5 in the secondary schools

super touch competition on

Wednesday.

The last time the school raised

the trophy was in 2013.

Assistant director of sport

and team manager, Mandy

Anderson, said the win is a good

warm up for the South Island

secondary school championships

on Friday and Saturday.

The game against St Margaret’s

didn’t start well with the opposition

scoring twice in as many

minutes, she said

“Our girls didn’t let up at all

and then with the score sitting

at five all, with two minutes to

go, we scored. After defending a

set of six touches, the game was

ours,” she said.

“We can take real heart from

this, without question. The fact

that the girls know they can

come back and keep the pressure

on right to the end is an excellent

learning from this win.”

Aside from winning in 2013,

the school has had a bit of a

dry spell after holding the title

between 2001-2006.

A large number of school

supporters, including the

Rangi Ruru sport mascot Sonic,

cheered the team’s win and are

expected to do the same at the

South Island championships.

Trenchard wins place on

national track cycling team

• By Andrew King

BURNSIDE HIGH School cyclist

Matthew Trenchard has been

selected for New Zealand to

compete in China in August.

The 17-year-old was included

alongside former Burnside student

Josh Scott and former Christchurch

Girls’ High School student Kate

Smith in the 13-strong team.

They will compete in the UCI

Junior World Track Championships

on August 23-27.

Trenchard said it was a dream

come true to be selected for the

team.

“My ultimate goal is to be a

cyclist full-time, and now that is

within touching distance,” he said.

Eight years ago a neighbour

showed Trenchard an advertisement

in The Star to give competitive

cycling a go at Denton Park

and he has been there ever since.

Trenchard lives and breathes the

sport, spending up to 17 hours per

week on the bike as well as working

for his coach at his bike shop in

Tower Junction.

“I love the speed, the adrenaline,

the fact that crashes are millimetres

away from happening and the

excitement,” he said.

He said without the support

of his teachers, coaches and his

parents he would not be where he

is today.

Neighbour

Hello

Building a strong reputation

in real estate

The name Monty Parti is becoming

increasingly well known in the

Christchurch real estate market – especially

in the northern suburbs of the city.

As the franchise holder of Mike Pero

Bryndwr in Wairakei Road, which works

across these areas including Bryndwr,

Bishopdale, Casebrook and Northcote,

Monty is building a reputation for honesty,

integrity and effective marketing in this

highly competitive sector.

Originally from India, Monty came to

Christchurch with his wife and two young

children 11 years ago. Starting with a small

dairy in town, Monty’s life was changed

after the September 4, 2010 earthquake.

He had to close down his dairy. “Life was

not easy at that time,” he says.

Monty’s career in real estate began

six years ago with a nine-month stint at

property management company Irelands

Property Management, after which

he joined Ray White as a real estate

salesperson. Following three successful

years there, he was offered the opportunity

to take over the Mike Pero Bryndwr

franchise from Lindsay Welch.

As a successful business owner of several

enterprises in India, this was the chance for

Monty to do what he enjoyed most – run

his own business. He now employs a team

of four salespeople, who can count on him

for any support they need – support he

says he didn’t really get when starting out

in real estate.

Passionate about selling property,

Monty says the most important quality

he offers his vendors is honesty. That and

open communication with vendors and

buyers. And the most important element

in getting a property sold quickly at a

price satisfactory to both parties, he says,

is marketing – knowing how and where to

spend money on marketing a property is

what brings the results.

Many of Monty’s clients come to him

through referrals and he has a lot of repeat

business, but while his name is becoming

increasingly recognisable through the

diversity of marketing channels he uses,

his goal is to “be famous”. He wants the

name Monty Parti to be one of the first

people think of when considering buying

or selling property.

Monty says his inspiration to stay

focused on his clients and his goals every

day is his family – his wife and three

children, the youngest of which was born

in New Zealand.

He also acknowledges the strong

foundation of values and the support he

received from his parents as he grew up.

“Thanks, mum and dad, for

everything.”

You can find Monty and his team at 169e

Wairakei Road, Bryndwr, or phone him on

0800 7376 05 03 or 377 1125.

Recent Successes

Mr Holstein

Welcome to Burnside High School for 2017

My aims this year are to:

• Provide an environment where staff,

students and their parents/caregivers feel

connected, valued and respected so they

enjoy their experience with Burnside High

School

• Work alongside the staff and students, to

build on our strengths, and to enhance our

reputation as a highly-regarded, successful

and sought-after school.

I want everyone at Burnside to feel that

they are part of something bigger than

themselves; and for the school to be a place

that allows students and staff to thrive, be

challenged, and become high performers.

I want a culture where “excellence is not

an act, but a habit” … a culture of high

performance.

Burnside High School offers a wide range

of opportunities through quality learning

experiences both inside and outside the

classroom. We aim to engage, challenge and

support students to improve their all-round

achievement and personal and interpersonal

skills; all within a culture based on personal

excellence and care for others. It is this

culture that underpins our success.

Our school motto - Recte sic dirige

cursum - ‘Along this path direct your

journey correctly’ is linked to the historical

significance of our Te Herenga Ora, cabbage

trees that stand so proudly on our grounds.

They are a local landmark and have been

used for centuries as a guiding point on the

plains.

I hope students feel guided through

Burnside High School, that they will attain

the qualifications they are capable of and

that they need, and that they develop the

personal qualities and confidence to choose

the right pathways in life. Above all else -

enjoy their “cabbage tree years”.

I look forward to another successful year on

so many fronts: in academic work, in cultural

activities, in the arts, in sport, in leadership,

and in service.

Phil Holstein,

Principal

FLAME FILES

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Farm life has

plenty to offer

young people

SCARRED: Scorched trees on the Port Hills, some are still hot and in danger of

reigniting.

Tree trunks still smouldering

• By Mark Thomas – Fire

Risk Management Officer

NEARLY A month after

the big Port Hills fire

started we are still getting

the odd call to smouldering

stumps or tree trunks.

The latest was on Monday

off Dyers Pass Rd

during a day of rain and

it shows how deep and

persistent large wildfires

can be.

There were a couple of

instances this week of what

could kindly be called as

muddled thinking.

In the first on Monday in

Knowles St a large burning

candle was placed on the

top of a free standing fireplace

– that was operating

due to the cold snap.

Of course the candle

melted all over and down

the fireplace and ignited.

No real damage but

smoke throughout.

The second involved a

tourist in a hotel room

who put the kettle on an

element on the stove top to

make tea.

Unfortunately it was an

electric, and far more importantly,

plastic kettle.

Smoke and mess again.

We also saw a toaster in

a cupboard in Redwood

cause a lot of heat and

some real concern from the

occupant.

‘Appliance garages’ have

been around for many

years now.

They consist of what is

generally a small roller

door covering toaster and

kettle with a power point

available inside.

They will generally work

fine in this way.

But they should never be

closed while this happens.

There have been a few

fires over the years where

the roller door has been

shut on to the knob of the

toaster, preventing it from

popping up.

The result can be devastating.

From city girl to sharemilker to equity

farmer, North Canterbury’s Wendy Croft has

come a long way in a sector that allows young

people to work hard and prosper.

“I was working in a bank before I got into

farming. I had never milked a cow, but we got

into sharemilking to save money, and it was

easier for me to manage it than to get someone

else to do it.”

Three years ago Wendy

enrolled in Ara Institute

of Canterbury’s NZ

Diploma in Agribusiness

Management; a practical

qualification for working

farmers that is delivered

online with face to face

tutorials in Culverden.

The programme is

run with the Primary

ITO and was rated as

“excellent” by the New

Zealand Qualifications

Authority (NZQA) in a

recent report.

With two young

children and a business

to run, Wendy balanced her studies with her

family and work commitments.

““I think my husband and I worked together

every day for three years! It was hard, and it’s

not for everyone. It’s challenging but it’s really

rewarding.”

Does she miss her city lifestyle? “Yes,

sometimes I miss the city, but I love the lifestyle

here – I have good neighbours and good staff.”

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Need more vitality?

The nutrient balance of the body is critical

for optimum aging. Research has shown

the body performs much better if all the

required nutrients are available in sufficient

quantities. The problem is it is very hard

to obtain enough if any of some of these

nutrients from a normal diet. Boron is one

of the many nutrients with amazing benefits

that is lacking in our diet. A 2014 double

blind placebo controlled human clinical

study of a patented form of the mineral

boron delivered significant reduction in

pain, stiffness and joint comfort with 80%

stopping or reducing medication and 87.5%

saying they had less or no stiffness in just 4

weeks. Boron also helps balance hormones

in both men and woman and can increase

fertility. It helps promote healthy muscle

mass, fights diabetes, strengthens the bones

and increases concentration and brain

function.

Pure Vitality are based on the West

Coast of the South Island. They aim to

Help for

Arthritis and

circulation

problems

When an Otaki woman devised a means

of relieving her husband’s arthritic pain,

stiff joints and swollen ankles, she did not

anticipate the demand that would ensue

for her Aircycle. The inflatable exerciser,

allowed her husband to exercise his finger,

ankle, knee and hip joints while sitting

down. So effective was it that an arthritis

educator requested they be made for others.

A hospital registered it with Medsafe to

use in podiatry and diabetes clinics.

Physiotherapists and rest homes

applauded the results. The gentle exercise

results in improved circulation in hands

and feet. People report swelling in ankles

and night cramps are gone. Leg muscles are

strengthened and, with improved balance,

many advise they are able to walk further.

Joint, lower back and sciatic pain is eased.

People use the Aircycle while watching

TV or having a cup of tea. It assists in

combatting OOS and DVT and ideal for

using while sitting in the office and in a car

or plane. It’s so easy!

Natural Joint Support

Just Got BETTER!

As we grow older we want to maintain

our health as much as possible.

Unfortunately for many of us our joints start

to let us down becoming stiff, sore, swollen,

reducing mobility and quality of life. Most

of these joints problems are caused by a

lack of cartilage or damage to the cartilage

which is the soft spongy material in all

joints between the moving bones. The body

continually produces cartilage but various

factors like digestive and health issues, a

lack of enough of the right nutrients in the

diet slow the production of this. If cartilage

wears away quicker than it is replaced

the bone ends can start rubbing together

causing reduced joint movement, pain,

swelling and inflammation of the joint.

PURE Vitality are a small company on

the West Coast of the South Island. They are

committed to producing the most effective

natural life changing health supplements

available.

They therefor have put a tremendous

amount of research into their new JOINT

VITALITY product which contains an

exclusive selection of best scientifically

researched high potency natural ingredients

to provide a multipronged approach to

joint health. As well as a full therapeutic

dose of the more common Glucosamine

and Chondroitin, Joint Vitality contains a

concentrated Deer Antler Velvet Extract

from PURE Vitality’s own Deer farm.

Deer antler velvet extract has astounded

scientists and health professionals with

its health restoring properties. Its natural

growth factors help stimulate the healing

of the body. Another unique ingredient in

JOINT VITALITY is Joint Fluid or megapotent

hyaluronic acid. This has been

shown in clinical trials to be more effective

than glucosamine and chondroitin.

Joint Vitality contains enhanced

absorption Turmeric extract as well as

the highest potency extract of Boswellia

available to reduce inflammation, swelling

and pain which speeds joint recovery and

formation of new cartilage.

The formula also provides antioxidants

from Grape Seed extract to support cellular

joint health as well as effective doses of

Vitamin D3, Zinc, Boron, Manganese,

Copper & Selenium that have all be shown

to be critical to optimum joint health.

This heavy duty comprehensive formula is

designed with the most researched highest

potency extracts available for maximum

fast lasting results. It is recommended

to take 3 capsules daily with food for the

first box or two to obtain the maximum

benefits. One box or 60 capsules is $49.90

The facts about

home ventilation

Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need to

be suitably ventilated, either with opening

windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1

states: “The objective of this provision is

to safeguard people from illness or loss of

amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are

many benefits to forced, or mechanical,

ventilation over opening windows, including

warmth, security, reduction of outside noises

and reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from

outside via the roof space and force the stale air

out through gaps around windows and doors.

The incoming air from these

systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm

in winter or cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is

a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It

extracts air from the house and

at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air

pass through a heat exchanger,

which warms incoming air in

winter and cools in summer if

air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of

the energy which would be

wasted using a traditional positive pressure

system is recovered, resulting in significant

energy savings and therefore lower heating or

cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation

systems have been considerably more

expensive than traditional positive pressure

systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique

manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390

balanced pressure system can be installed for

a similar price as a traditional positive pressure

system.

Warming winter with

EnviroMaster

Are you struggling with the heat of Summer

or wanting to get organised for Winter? With

the ever changing weather patterns, heat

pumps have the flexibility of being able to

heat and cool which is an advantage no other

appliance can offer. This represents great

value for your investment as you can use it all

year round. The team at Enviro Master Ltd

can help keep you cool this Summer either at

home or work. Enviro Master supplies, installs

and services all the leading brands including

Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin.

This means our team can show you which

system and brand will best suit your needs.

We currently have savings up to $600

off the recommended retail price on

selected models.

Would you like to maximise the number

of days you can use your swimming pool?

Heating your pool can do this and one of the

most cost effective ways is with a water heat

pump. Enviro Master Ltd can supply, install

and service you swimming pool heat pump

providing you with a comfortable, extended

swimming season.

Servicing your heat pump is extremely

important to ensure that it is working as

effectively and efficiently as possible resulting

in a healthy, hygienic heat pump, lower power

bills and greater comfort. But beware, not

all cleaning companies are equal. We are

constantly hearing of people being charged

huge amounts for servicing and all they are

getting is a heat pump clean. We at Enviro

Master, are qualified engineers and therefore

are able to fully test and diagnose any problems

you may or may not be aware of with your

heat pump. Also, as we are associated with all

major brands, we are able to repair these under

warranty if they are still within the warranty

period.

It is important to remember, when selecting

an installer, the manufacturer’s warranty does

not cover the installation and consumers could

be responsible for any repair or damage caused

to the system due to poor installation. Enviro

Master’s five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration so

customers have an understanding on how it

will best meet their needs.

Did you know you can, if installed correctly,

check each panel is working correctly? Did

you know you can assess/see the total amount

of generation of your system and the instant

RSI, OOS or Gradual process

Injury can be treated!

What causes OOS? The Department

of Labour states: “One of the

favourable explanations for OOS is

that it is caused by muscles being

held tense or tight for too long.’’

These conditions may be caused

by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions,

vibrations, mechanical compression, or

sustained or awkward positions.

The shorter and tenser the muscle, the

harder it pulls on the places it attaches to

(e.g. the bone). When this happens in the

forearm the pull at those attachments and

tendons causes irritation and inflammation

of those areas. This will be noticed as pain in

the elbow and wrist. When this happens in

the neck and shoulder area, it will be noticed

as local pain, stiffness and sometimes

headaches. The nerves run right through

the muscles. Tension on the muscles causes

pressure on the nerves. As the muscles

shorten, the nerves running through them

have a tendency to both shorten and slide

less well. This causes the nerves to radiate

pain throughout the arm.

Triggerpoints are areas in your muscles,

where a few muscle fibres have contracted

in a knot. These knots (the hard and painful

areas in your muscles felt during massage)

weaken and shorten your muscles and can

cause referred pain.

This drawing is an example of pain areas

(the red area), caused by triggerpoints (the

black X).

This is your muscle’s reaction to continuous


irritation. In most cases, there are multiple

causes for this irritation. These could be:

repeated actions without breaks; constant

static posture resulting in constant muscle

contraction; lack of healthy blood flow; bad

posture resulting in continuous high loading

of some muscles, etc.

As you can see, your thumb pain can

originate in your neck. Pain in your little























finger or forearm

can originate in

your chest. This

is the reason that

your therapist

may treat an

area, other than


where you are

experiencing


pain.

In the following

drawing you can

see the painful

areas in the head

caused by the

triggerpoint in the neck. This is often the

result of poor posture.

Physical Sense has been treating

this condition for the last 25 years.


Their experience is:


• Most of the patients who have had their


pain for less than a year leave this clinic free

of pain (but they have to be very careful to

avoid relapses).

• When the OOS pain has been there

for more than a year, that percentage drops

to 60%.

• The other 40% will leave the clinic with

relief of pain and with knowledge about

numerous strategies to relieve and handle

the remaining pain.
























NOR’WEST NEWS

Physical Sense has published the “OOS

Client Information Booklet”. It is full of

handy tips on how to self treat and avoid

this condition.

Rise in

number of

motorists

running

red lights

CHRISTCHURCH’S growing

red light-running problem is

leaving dozens of injuries in its

wake.

In the past year, there were 65

crashes which left people

injured after drivers ran

red lights, up from 42 the

year before.

At the city’s top 10

worst intersections this

month, almost 5400

drivers ran red lights in a

single day.

That was up 31 per cent from

last year, and 64 per cent more

than in 2014.

They do not include people

turning right across an intersection

on a red light.

The worst for red light-runners

was the intersection of Blenheim

Rd and Mandeville St, where 652

were detected on a single day on

Thursday, December 1.

Police figures have also grown.

In the last year, 1491 people

were ticketed for running red

lights in Christchurch, up from

1316 the year before and 1266 in

2014.

Canterbury road policing

manager Inspector Al Stewart

(left) said he was disappointed to

see the rise.

“It puts people at risk. They

may get away with it 99

out of 100 times, but it is

that one time which could

leave someone injured or

killed,” he said.

He said police had a

focus last year on bad

driving at intersections,

which included red

light-running, and that would

continue until the numbers

improved.

People often had different

excuses when ticketed for running

red lights, but there was no

acceptable reason, he said.

“A lot of people are simply

focused on other things and

don’t see it, but that is just as

unacceptable as running a light

deliberately, because when driving

you should be focused on the

task at hand,” he said.

FUEL TAX IDEA

You’ve got to be

joking – motorists

• By Bridget Rutherford

MOTORISTS HAVE slammed

an idea to introduce a regional

fuel tax in Canterbury to fix

earthquake-damaged roads.

Last week, The Star revealed

city councillors Aaron Keown

and Phil Clearwater were pushing

for a fuel tax.

But The Star has received

numerous readers’ responses –

with all but one saying they did

not want a regional fuel tax (see

pages 16-18).

They said petrol was already

expensive including the fuel

excise, and the city council

should find money within its

budge to repair the roads.

It comes as Energy Minister

Judith Collins signals an inquiry

into rising petrol margins.

Petrol was currently about 30c

more in the South Island and

Wellington compared to places

such as Levin and Masterton.

Cr Keown said he expected

opposition to the idea – but in

paying extra on fuel tax to fix

the roads, it would save money

in the future.

“Rather than pay a little bit

more on fuel, they’d rather

damage their cars and take more

time travelling.

“They are assuming the council

can just juggle the numbers

around and fix the roads.”

Motorist Helen Logan (left)

said she would be “very disappointed”

if a fuel tax was introduced.

“We’re paying more for fuel

here in Christchurch. I fee like

there’s so many other ways to

contribute to the roads.

“A lot of people can’t afford to

run cars as it is.”

Auckland Mayor Phil Goff

asked for a 10c per litre fuel tax

for Auckland to plug the $4

million funding gap it has for a

list of transport projects over the

next decade.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said she

would be interested to see what

happened there before making

any decisions on asking the Governmen

to look at Canterbury.

Canterbury University transport

expert Simon Kingham said

the idea was feasible because it

was user-based.

He said if the city council was

to find money in the budget for

repairs, it would have to up rates,

or take it from another project.
