speed

limits

around

varsity

DEBUT: Rico Syme made a grand entrance into the UC Championship when he scored a 68th minute try to help

Christchurch Boys’ High to a 25-23 victory over St Andrew’s on Saturday. After being included on the reserves bench

from the second XV for the first time, the replacement fullback made a dazzling 50m dash to level the scores in the

dying minutes. Alex Harford calmly kicked the conversion to win the game and keep them top of the table after eight

rounds. •Read more, page 19 •Editor’s note, page 2

STREETS around Canterbury

University could have speed limits

lowered.

The city council is looking at

reducing the limit to 30km/h

along parts of the Uni-Cycle

cycleway, which will include a

neighbourhood greenway through

Fendalton.

The cycleway runs from the

university through to the central

city with reductions proposed for

Hinau, Miro and Ngahere Sts.

The lowered limit is to allow for a

safe shared space between bicycles

and vehicles.

The speed limit would also be

supported by the design which

includes various traffic calming

measures to further encourage

slower speeds.

THAT RUGBY factory known as

Christchurch Boys’ High produced

another moment to remember on

Saturday.

Rico Syme, who made his UC

Championship debut from the

bench helped seal a late win over St

Andrew’s with a brilliant piece of

footwork and acceleration.

The school posted an equally

sharply taken photo opportunity

on its Facebook site (see page 1) of

the moment Syme started his 50m

run which enabled his team to

draw level and give first-five Alex

Harford an easy conversion to win

the match.

The UC Championship is an

amazing breeding ground for

young rugby talent and no doubt

Syme’s debut will put a little bit of

pressure on the CBHS incumbent.

That of course is no bad thing

whatever the sporting code is.

Lower speed limit plan

•From page 1

At the last city council

meeting ViaStrada senior traffic

engineer and transport planner

Glen Koorey said they should

consider lowering speed limits

across the city.

The former Canterbury

University transport engineering

senior

lecturer said

the changes

would improve

motorist, cyclist

and pedestrian

safety.

“There’s a

lot of crashes

Glen Koorey

where the

likelihood or

the severity

could have been reduced greatly

if you got the speeds down. We

know from the evidence that you

drop the speeds from 50km/h to

40km/h, 40km/h to 30km/h, the

risk of serious injury or fatality

goes down dramatically.”

Dr Koorey said in Hamilton,

speed limits in school zones had

been reduced. He said that could

be done here.

•Residents can make

submissions opposing or

supporting the limit changes

on the city council’s website

LOWER: The city council is

seeking feedback regarding a

plan to reduce the speed limit

along these Fendalton streets

near Canterbury University.

In Brief

SPORTS FIELD WORK

BEHIND SCHEDULE

Work re-turfing sports fields at

Tulett Park, Casebrook, is six

weeks behind schedule. For four

weeks contractors couldn’t get

a power or water supply and a

further two weeks were lost due

to poor weather. Physical work

on the park has been completed,

but while the grass is re-grown, it

will not be ready for sports teams

until the end of July.

BUILDING DEMOLITION

The city council is seeking

tenders for the demolition of 122

Caledonian Rd, St Albans. The

property will become the site

of the new car park for the St

Albans Community Centre.

THIRD LANE FEEDBACK

Public feedback is being sought

on plans to construct a third

lane on the Northern Motorway.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board expressed concern about

the extra lane’s impact on traffic

through Belfast, Northcote,

Casebrook, Papanui and St

Albans. The extra lane has been

proposed as a way to deal with

the congestion problems on the

motorway for commuters from

North Canterbury. The public

can make a submission on the

Ecan website until July 13.

Bullying on the rise

Ilam Labour

candidate

Anthony

Rimell

writes about

bullying in

schools,

particularly in

the north-west

Bullying in our schools has

hit the headlines lately, with

one parent publicly protesting

the bullying of his daughter at

Waimairi School.

Following this dramatic

protest, I was contacted by

other parents saying that their

children had also been bullied at

the school. Parents from other

primary schools in the area have

told me their children are being

bullied too.

A number of school principals

have spoken up in defence of the

efforts of schools to deal with

bullying. For example, on June

1 the Halswell School principal

described bullying as a complex

issue.

Many parents at Waimairi

have also praised the efforts of

the principal to combat bullying.

The principals are right – bullying

is a complex issue. And I

believe they are doing all they

can to combat it.

But the fact is that bullying is

on the rise and parents are concerned

at the long-term impact

of bullying on their children.

Clearly something has to be

done.

We cannot accept our children

being harmed this way, we need

to get to the root causes.

And precisely because it is a

complex and challenging issue, I

believe it is vital that outside support

be brought into our schools.

That’s why I believe we must

place a mental health team in

every school – regardless of

decile rating.

Bullying does not happen in

isolation. Something causes it –

in the life of the person bullying,

or in wider factors (such as the

long term emotional impacts of

the earthquakes).

This issue and others like it,

need to be addressed urgently.

Our children are suffering.

Our teachers are there to teach.

We need to give them – and the

dedicated principals battling to

ensure our kids get the education

they deserve – all the help they

need. Specialist mental health

teams in schools are a must.

Readers respond to the

about red light runners

School

Rebecca Trowbridge –

Imagine what Bower Ave and

Travis Rd is going to be like

when the high school is built.

We already have drivers speeding

and cutting corners. It’s only

a matter of time before that sickening

screeching of brakes and

horrifying thud echoes through

our streets, followed by screaming

child and sirens.

Dani Cooper – My daughter

goes to this school and every day

I sit outside to pick her up and

see people speeding through the

orange lights and stopping last

minute at the red. Even with a

group of children crossing the

road, people don’t seem to see.

My heart is in my throat every

time.

Tony Simpson – We have

just had a weekend visiting

family in Christchurch. I was

amazed and horrified at the

red light runners. It is amazing

Why do police let them get away

with it? I fully realise that police

cannot be everywhere all the

time but we were opening our

car on Moorhouse Ave after netball

and watched two or three

run red lights and a couple of

women on cell phones in about

two minutes. Crashes waiting to

happen.

Nic Davies – Every red light

runner should be named and

shamed in the papers. Brainless

the lot if them.

Heather Wilkins – Where

there is both a green turning

light and a red turning light

at the same time as the green,

NOR’WEST NEWS

some people know what to do

and some cars can’t see the

pedestrians on the crossing so

get impatient.

Heidi Meinzer – No matter

where it is, some people have

no brains. I was leaving work,

it was getting dark and foggy,

I had my lights on, I go to turn

and this car comes past no

lights at all. And I look so many

times. And they blast the horn.

Then I go to a mall which is only

up the road, I’m going straight

and about three cars just pulled

out in the car park. My lights

on. At my daughter’s old school

(brand new) she is in high

school now. Well they would

double park or parents would

park across the road and just sit

there and of course little kids

would just run across the road.

I still don’t know why they built

the school that close to the road?

Or was it just way it had to be

done?

Time capsule found

Emma

Twaddell

• By Julia Evans

DID YOUR family live in St

Albans 150 years ago?

A time capsule buried in 1920

at the St Albans Community

Centre was found during its

recent demolition.

And now the St Albans Residents’

Association is looking for

any relatives of the community

centre’s founders.

Previously known as the St

Albans Library, the centre was

founded in 1867.

And a time

capsule was

buried on July

31, 1920, by the

Mayor Henry

Thacker.

The existence

of the

97-year-old

capsule, now

with the city

council, wasn’t known until it

was found.

Residents’ association cochairwoman

Emma Twaddell

said they are hoping to have

more input into the city council’s

plans to open it and want

to find relatives to make a more

special celebration.

However, she said the community

wasn’t even aware of the

city council’s discovery until it

asked to hire out the community

centre.

“They should have come

straight to us and see how we

want it to happen,” Mrs Twaddell

said.

RELIC: A time capsule, now

with the city council, was

found under the St Albans

Community Centre. ​

But the group is still eager to

work with the city council and

The work planned includes a

The other unsuitable material

INTO THE WOODS: Little Red Riding Hood played by Sofia

Anguisaca taking a basket of bread to her grandmother.

• By Julia Evans

WHAT HAPPENS when Little

Red Riding Hood, Cinderella,

Jack (of the beanstalk fame) and

Rapunzel meet?

That’s the story Papanui High

School is tackling for this year’s

musical production. Into the

Woods, a Stephen Sondheim and

James Lapine classic, is an amalgamation

of the Brothers Grimm

fairy tales.

Teacher and director Daniel

Scowcroft called it a dark comedy.

“It looks at growing up and

some of the challenges we face

on the road to adulthood,” he

said.

“There are some hilarious

moments that I have seen a

hundred times and still laugh at.

While you let your guard down

laughing, reality quickly sets in

and you will see the characters

struggle with some majorly difficult

events.”

The central characters, the

Baker and his Wife, are desperate

for a child and on instruction

from a witch, they go into the

woods in the hope of fulfilling

their wish for a family.

The subsequent adventures

twist and turn on a journey of

joy, love, loss and adventure.

Students look forward to this

biennial opportunity to experience

creating a full scale musical

production.

Mr Scowcroft is extremely

proud of the hard work and

dedication shown by his talented

young cast.

Fendalton car parks stay

Businesses

influence

final decision

• By Julia Evans

FENDALTON business owners

are relieved that parking outside

their premises won’t be removed.

Elizabeth Fry, owner of The

Cook Shop on Holmwood Rd,

said she’s thrilled the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board did not approve a new

pedestrian island that would take

away six parking spaces.

“We’re pleased it’s being maintained,”

Mrs Fry said.

If the parking was revoked,

she said she would have lost her

walk-in customer base.

“It’ll kill us . . . the reality is

it’s putting all these businesses

in real danger of having to close

their doors,” Mrs Fry said.

But the board went against the

city council’s recommendation

and moved a motion to keep the

intersection as it is.

The board’s decision came after

Mrs Fry organised a petition of

336 signatures opposing the loss

of parking.

Ilam MP Gerry Brownlee,

OVER THE MOON: Elizabeth Fry, owner of The Cook Shop on

Holmwood Rd, is thrilled the car parks outside her business

won’t be removed.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

board chairman David Cartwright

and city councillor Jamie

Gough also met with Mrs Fry in

May to address concerns raised

by the petition.

Said board deputy chairman

Sam MacDonald: “This is one of

those things that gets the council

in trouble. It costs ratepayers

money that could be spent somewhere

else. It doesn’t appease

the residents and it is imposing

something unnecessarily,” he

said.

“We’re really focused on the

council spending money where it

should be spending and this was

one of those examples where it

wasn’t. We didn’t feel it was being

spent in the right way.”

The board queried why the

work had been prioritised over

the Harewood, Gardiners and

Breens Rds intersection.

“If we’re going to be spending

nearly $100,000, we should be

spending it in a community

that actually wants it,” Mr

MacDonald said.

Residents Roy Bickerstaffe

and Stuart Gowland made

deputations to the board and

said they did not want the

P10 parking spaces outside

their properties further down

Holmwood Rd.

EVEN WITH more than 76,000

members worldwide, many

people haven’t heard of this

group.

But recently the Soroptimist

International of Christchurch

celebrated the long service

members over the last 68 years.

Special recognition was given

to Maureen Lough, who was

president of the club during the

2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

Certificates were presented to

those who had given over 10 and

20 years of service.

And certificates, badges and a

bouquet flowers presented to the

four members whose combined

service topped 327 years.

The Soroptimist’s have

supported groups such as

Cotwold pupils get on their bikes with $15,000 grant

• By Julia Evans

THE BIKES in Schools

programme is one step closer

to being run from Cotswold

Primary School.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

has earmarked $15,000 to go

towards the programme at the

Bishopdale school. The aim is

to provide children with easy

access to bicycles.

The school is looking to

purchase a fleet of more than

50 bicycles of four different

sizes and helmets. They will

also build a bike track around

the school field and a storage

facility.

Of the $72,000 needed, the

school has raised $56,000

already. The board’s contribution

pushes that to $71,000.

The track will be open to

500 Cotswold pupils during

the school day and to the

community after school hours

and on weekends.

Local sports clubs, preschools

and kindergartens will

also have access to the track.

Board deputy chairman

Sam MacDonald said the

it was fully behind the programme.

Mr MacDonald said the

best part of the plan was that

it would benefit the wider

community as well as the

school.

“The thing is with the

city council giving away

money like that is it should

be beneficial for the whole

community,” he said.

The school also plans to

hold duathlons and bicycle

races.

More than 65 schools across

the country have worked with

the Bikes in Schools Charitable

Trust to implement the

programme.

However, Cotswold will become

only the second school

in the city to run it, alongside

Rawhiti School in North New

Brighton.

EXCITING: Cotswold

Primary School pupils

are on track to benefit

from the Bikes in Schools

programme.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Headaches,

facial and jaw pain

NOR’WEST NEWS

Physical Sense Gym & Physio, located in Colombo Street Sydenham,

focuses both on helping people stay physically fit and healthy, and

helping people to overcome various health problems.

At the adjoining physio

clinic, the four qualified

physiotherapists specialise

in dealing with chronic pain,

such as headaches, earache, toothache,

and facial and jaw pain.

As physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk

explains, when our muscles tighten

this can refer pain to many of the areas

around the face and head. Dehydration

can be the catalyst for tightening the neck

muscle (SCM), which causes pain in the

ear, forehead and around the eye and jaw

joint areas. Tightening of the temporalis

muscle can refer pain to the teeth, which

can be confusing when the person

visits the dentist to have it checked and

the dentist can’t find a reason for the

recurring pain.

Teeth grinding at night and teeth

clenching during the day, are also a major

cause of muscle tightening.

Physiotherapy treatment for these

problems, is based on deactivating

the ‘trigger points’ through handson

massage therapy, to relax the

muscles, which is the least invasive

and a very effective form of treatment.

Dry needling is another technique used

for muscle relaxation, but is only used with

the client’s consent, Ietje says.

“We release the muscles to give

immediate relief and at the same time

work on the cause. For example, we have

a feedback headband that is worn at night

to help people to learn not to clench their

teeth while they’re asleep. We also work

on the client’s cervical or neck part of the

spine, where overuse can cause muscles

to tighten, creating pain.”

Teaching self-management of stress

is an important aspect of the clinic’s

treatment, as well as teaching breathing

techniques, which go hand in hand with

managing stress.

The gym is open to the public for

regular specialised classes for people with

ailments such as diabetes, osteoporosis,

vascular problems, and those who face

difficulties following a stroke.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

CBHS beat St Andrew’s

to retain top spot

• By Andrew King

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’

High dug deep to stay

top of the table with a

two-point victory over

close rival St Andrew’s on

Saturday.

A blazing run from

replacement fullback Rico

Syme drew the match

23-23 in the 68th minute.

Alex Harford then kicked

the conversion to snatch a

25-23 victory at the death

helping CBHS retain

their top spot on the UC

Championship table.

Syme said when he saw

he only had one between

him and the try line, he

was confident he would go

all the way.

“I knew that if I got on

the outside of him I was

going to score. Since it

was the winning try it felt

pretty unreal,” he said.

St Andrew’s were

reduced to 14 players when

fullback Tom Anderson

was sent behind the sticks

for a high tackle in the

66th minute.

It was St Andrew’s

second defeat in a week

after losing 23-10 to

second placed Timaru

Boys’ High on Wednesday

during their annual school

exchange.

St Andrew’s coach Rod

MacIntosh said it was a

massive effort by his lads

to get as close as they did

after the bruising encounter

with TBHS.

“The weather conditions

suited [TBHS’s] huge forward

pack down there on

Wednesday. On Saturday,

we needed to close it out

but couldn’t. That’s rugby,”

he said.

MacIntosh said the team

can take a lot of good lessons

from the two games.

“It is a week by week

thing for us. We just want

to play with some consistency

and enjoy our rugby,”

he said.

Today St Andrew’s

play John McGlashan

College in Dunedin

before preparing for Mid-

Canterbury Combined

on Saturday. To bolster

the team, young wingers

Dom Clarke, 15, and Hugh

Montgomery, 14, have

been brought into the side.

In other games, St Bede’s

were thrashed by Nelson

College 62-17, while Burnside

had a tough day at the

office against TBHS losing

66-5.

NURSE MAUDE

Loving home guaranteed

for your hall table

The Nurse Maude Hospice Shops are a

well-known feature in Christchurch since

the first hospice shop opened in Merivale

nine years ago.

Not quite so well-known, however, is

Maudes on Trade Me.

While the Hospice Shops sell clothing

Maudes on Trade Me sells everything from

antiques to sporting and household items.

“If it’s still in good condition but you

no longer want it, have room for it or will

never use it again you can raise money for

the Nurse Maude Hospice by donating it

to us,” says Sue Bramwell, general manager

marketing at Nurse Maude.

While smaller pieces can be left for Maudes

on Trade Me at any of the Nurse Maude

Hospice Shops it is sometimes possible for

larger or bulk items to be picked up.

“Just give us a call on 375 4643 or email

us at trademe.volunteers@nursemaude.org.

nz first if you have large items and we can let

you know where in Merivale to drop them

off or whether we’re able to pick them up”

says Bramwell.

“Unfortunately we can’t take beds,

mattresses or televisions, but we can take

almost everything else in good condition.”

“Maudes on Trade Me helps make it

possible for patients and their families to

receive care and support free of charge at the

Nurse Maude Hospice so they can focus on

what matters rather than having to worry

about how they’re going to pay for that care.”

Netball fans get chance

to high-five their heroes

ST MARGARET’S College

netballer Caitlynne Hill

Gymnast’s debut on world

stage has her wanting more

• By Andrew King

IN ONLY her first outing at

an international tournament,

Strowan gymnast Brooke

Teear finished sixth in the

trampoline – and the buzz of it

has left her wanting more.

The 14-year-old competed in

Melbourne at the Australian

gymnastic nationals recently,

and said she was happy with

the way she performed.

“It was my first time

representing New Zealand in

the junior international 15-plus

age group. I competed well and

I am happy with my result,”

she said.

Now she wants to experience

more competitions.

“I am now working towards

making the New Zealand team

who are travelling to Bulgaria

for the world age group

championships,” she said.

The team travels to Europe

in November.

For that to happen, she said

she will have to work on a

couple of things.

“I am currently working

on my landing. As I need to

make sure I am landing more

accurate in the red zone to get

no deductions in points,” she

said.

Ensuring a safe work place

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

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

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

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

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

on to the sports field?

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

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

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

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

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

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

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

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

hypothermia and poisonings.

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

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

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

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

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

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

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

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

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

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

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

such as motor vehicle accidents.

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

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

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

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

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

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

it is located.

RYMAN HEALTHCARE

Dedicated team with experienced

manager ensures first-class care

The Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village in

Papanui has a wonderful team of dedicated

people, all of whom ensure that residents

receive the care they require as their needs

change.

A key member of that team is Clinical

Manager Jesney Johney. Coming to New

Zealand with extensive post-graduate

nursing experience in her home country of

India and in the United Kingdom, where she

worked as a senior caregiver in a dementia

unit, Jesney joined Ngaio Marsh three and a

half years ago as a Registered Nurse.

This was after completing a cap course to

gain New Zealand qualifications and also

gaining a National Certificate in Infection

Control.

After two years she was promoted to the

position of Hospital Co-ordinator and a

year later was again promoted to Clinical

Manager, a role in which she is responsible

for 155 residents and 159 staff at Ngaio

Marsh.

“Jesney has a strong medical, surgical and

aged care background and we are delighted

to have her as the Clinical Manager at Ngaio

Marsh,” Village Manager Anna Thomson

says.

Jesney says she has loved being at the

village right from the start, and was warmly

welcomed by the whole team when she

arrived.

“I didn’t know anyone in Christchurch

so for the first two weeks I stayed in a

serviced apartment here until I found

accommodation.”

For Jesney, working with the residents

at Ngaio Marsh is both enjoyable and

satisfying.

“Elderly people are the community’s most

vulnerable and they need support and help.

For me it’s inspiring to help and support

them. I love all of them,” she says.

“Jesney is also very good at working with

the residents’ families,” Anna says. “She has a

unique way of communicating with residents

and their relatives. She has a calm nature and

is very good with helping residents settle in.”

A new app, myRyman Care, which is

due to be rolled out in August, will not

only see paper files disappear, but will also

revolutionise the way the team works at

Ngaio Marsh, Anna says.

Jesney agrees. “There will be a tablet in

every room with all the information about

the daily care of the resident. There will be

different levels of access – for residents, and

staff, and eventually for relatives too.”

Jesney says the “whole idea of it is so

staff can have more time to spend with the

residents”.

“Having more time to talk with the

residents is the best way to get additional

information from them about anything they

might need.”

Anna says that connection with residents

and their families is “so important”.

“It’s about getting to know the families, so

they come to see the village as their second

home. Any activities they have done as a

family, they can continue to do here.”

For example, the village put on a Mother’s

Day lunch, with the families joining in, she

says.

Residents are given a monthly calendar

with all the upcoming activities. Activities

include the exclusive Ryman Triple A

exercise programme, which is tailored for

residents’ differing levels of health and

mobility. There is also housie, knitting

groups, happy hours, movies, and more, so

all interests are catered for.

They also have their own ‘Ryman

Delicious’ menus. The winter menus are

full of hearty, warming food for the cooler

season.

Every six months, there is a relatives’

meeting for each area of the Ngaio

Marsh Village, attended by the team of

management and activity coordinators, at

which the families get to know the staff and

are updated on any future plans.

Underpinning the work of management

and the nursing and caregiving staff is a

Village Manager Anna Thomson, left, and Clinical Manager

Jesney Johney, third from left, with some of the Ngaio Marsh

team members.

Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village is set in attractively landscaped gardens that the

residents can enjoy.

strong team culture, Anna says.

“We all have a strong belief that we are here

for both the residents and their families.”

“It’s a supportive culture that’s led by all

of us,” Jesney adds. “People feel free to put

forward new ideas. Every team member has

the opportunity to influence the way things

are done if they see how something can

be improved. We welcome staff members’

ideas.”

Anna is proud of the Ngaio Marsh team,

who she says take “tremendous pride in

what they do and how they care for residents

and their families”.

Jesney says to her, Ngaio Marsh “feels like

it’s a family”.

The Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village

offers independent living in townhouses,

assisted living in serviced apartments,

and resthome and hospital care. For more

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Natural product

improves joint health

For many of us, as we grow older our

joints start to become stiff, sore and swollen,

reducing mobility and quality of life.

Most of these joint problems are caused

by a lack of cartilage or damage to the

cartilage, which is the soft, spongy material

between the moving bones. The body

continually produces cartilage, but factors

like digestive and health issues, and not

enough of the right nutrients in the diet,

slow its production. If the cartilage wears

away more quickly than it is replaced,

the bone ends can start rubbing together,

causing reduced joint movement, pain,

swelling and inflammation of the joint.

Generally, the joints with the most use or

stress show problems first, but eventually

other joints may show problems too.

Luckily, certain nutrients are known to

support and stimulate cartilage production.

Pure Vitality is a small West Coast

company, where they are committed to

producing effective, natural, life-changing

health supplements. While most joint care

products on the market are very similar,

Pure Vitality wants their products to be

the most effective. Their new Joint Vitality

product contains 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 to

help stimulate healing. Another unique

ingredient is joint fluid or mega-potent

hyaluronic acid. This has been shown in

clinical trials to be more effective than

glucosamine and chondroitin.

Joint Vitality also contains enhanced

absorption turmeric extract, as well as

the highest- potency extract of boswellia

available to reduce inflammation, swelling

and pain, and speed joint recovery.

The formula also provides antioxidants

from grape seed extract to support cellular

joint health, and vitamin D3, zinc, boron,

manganese, copper and selenium, all

critical to optimum joint health.

This comprehensive formula is designed

to provide fast, lasting results. It is

recommended to take three capsules daily

with food for the first box or two to obtain

the maximum benefits. One box of 60

capsules is $49.90.

The importance of good blood pressure!

According to a country Doctor “D.C.

Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider

vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an

important part of a long healthy life. Dr.

Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly

consumed cider vinegar and honey had

excellent health with many putting in a

vigorous day’s work on the farm even when

well into their eighties.

Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar

and honey on arthritis can be remarkable

with many patients reporting almost total

relief after taking a course of the cider

vinegar and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider vinegar

counteracted calcium deposits and helped

the body control calcium use.

As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found

regular administration of cider vinegar and

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the right heat

pump for your home

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,

most homes include at least one heat pump,

if not a whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more

convenient than a log burner as you just need

to press a button. But how do you decide

what is best? Choosing the right sized heat

pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort

levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore

important to get professional advice from heat

pump experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it

is important to select the correct size for your

requirements that will handle the job but not

be unnecessarily overpowered.

Secondly, the location of your heat pump

is also extremely important. The cheapest

installation is a back to back where the outdoor

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor

unit however this is not necessarily always

the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of

systems and price, so it depends on your

application as to which will be most suitable.

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are

all reliable brands backed up by good technical

after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but

also validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to consider when choosing a

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi

capabilities.

Heating is a major investment in your home

and it is vital to get the right advice.

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,

installation and servicing of all major brands

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as

to which system will suit your application

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no

obligation quote and will come to your home

to see what is required. Visit our website at

www.enviromaster.co.nz.

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.
