Second

chance

possible

for cycle

scheme

• By Julia Evans

THE CAMPAIGN to get more

people cycling to Jellie Park Sport

and Recreation Centre may get a

second chance.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board was

given a briefing by city council

western area operations manager

Martin McGregor at its meeting

last Monday.

Mr McGregor said the trial ran

smoothly but had only a “small-tomoderate

uptake” so it wouldn’t be

continuing.

But the board disputed that.

It has requested the incentive be

trialled again, but this time with a

more significant incentive, such as

free pool entry for cyclists.

The board also said a longer trial

was necessary, as well as a more

robust promotion so people are

more aware of it.

Board chairman David Cartwright

said: “One month is great,

but you need to do it for a minimum

of six.”

The second trial round will

hopefully begin in September and

run for at least six months.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

GOOD TO see the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board has forced

a rethink of the city council’s

decision to abandon the cycle to

Jellie Park scheme (see page 1).

Last week we reported the

incentivised scheme had been

aborted and would not be

implemented at other recreation

centres aorund the city.

Odd at a time when the city

council is spending squillions on

cycleways.

So full marks to the community

board for putting its foot

down with the city council.

The board has requested there

be a more significant incentive,

such as free pool entry for

cyclists.

The board also said a longer

trial was necessary, as well as a

more robust promotion so people

are become more aware of it.

The outcome will be known

fairly soon. – Barry Clarke

Red light sting helps school

• By Julia Evans

TWENTY TICKETS were

given out by police during

a sting at the intersection of

Cranford and Berwick Sts in

a bid to stop red light-runners

near St Albans School.

While three tickets were issued

for cell phone usage, out of

date road user charges and not

wearing a seatbelt, the other 17

were for traffic light offences.

It comes after Rachel Donaldson,

a mother from St Albans

School, launched a campaign

against red lightrunners

at the

intersection.

Mrs Donaldson

said

the amount of

tickets given out

Rachel

Donaldson

highlighted how

bad the problem

really was.

“There was no

advanced warning, it just proves

that this is a daily occurrence,”

she said.

Mrs Donaldson said she

hoped if people knew the intersection

was regularly targeted

by police, driver behaviour

might change.

She has also put signs at the

DANGER: Police dished out 20 tickets in one hour of

monitoring this intersection at Cranford and Berwick Sts. ​

intersection of Cranford and

Berwick Sts which said: “Don’t

be that driver to kill a child”,

“Slow down”, and “St Albans

children matter”.

But Mrs Donaldson said she

now wants to keep the pressure

on the Papanui-Innes Community

Board to make some

practical changes.

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

raised the issue with police

and they were patrolling the

intersection the very next

morning.

“Board members Emma

Norrish and Jo Byrne met with

a concerned mum who brought

the issue to our attention and

I contacted the Papanui police

straight away,” Ms Jones said.

The board is now looking

into getting a barrier to protect

children standing at the

intersection.

“We don’t want to lose the

momentum we’ve got going,”

Ms Jones said.

The board will work with

police to have regular stings at

the intersection during peak

hours and a red light camera in

the area.

But the issue isn’t only a

problem in St Albans.

Ms Jones recently attended

a meeting at Shirley Primary

School with city council staff,

the school’s deputy principals

and police to address the same

issue on Shirley Rd.

The community board is

continuing to address the traffic

issues in its ward – with new

signage expected in Shirley

within weeks.

In Brief

DANGEROUS DRIVING

Downer and the city council have

been made aware of dangerous

driving at the intersection of

Guild St and Slater St with reports

of some drivers ignoring the

road signs that are in place. The

changes in traffic are in place

while the Hills Rd culvert is being

built. Slater St is blocked and

there will be no right turn into

Guild St from Slater St in a bid to

stop the dangerous driving.

BOWLING CLUB UPGRADE

The Fendalton Bowling Club has

received $3000 to go towards

upgrading gutters and access

paths. The club, based in Makora

St, Fendalton, needs the upgrade

so it can be a contender to host

national and international

events. The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

approved the funding at its last

meeting.

SWIM CLUB MONEY

The St Albans Amateur

Swimming Life-Saving Club

Inc has been using the Shirley

Intermediate School Pool for a

number of years. It has received

$2500 of funding from the

Papanui-Innes Community Board

to continue to pay for the pool’s

hire. The club is run entirely by

volunteers and fees are kept to a

minimum.

PEDAL: The Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board member Bridget

Williams wants to see more bicycles in these stands. ​

Scheme could get second chance

•From page 1

One month did not

measure a trend, Mr Cartwright

said.

“We don’t want a dot, we

need a line across several

months and then we can

find out trends,” Mr Cartwright

said.

The initial trial in

February meant if you

cycled to Jellie Park five

times, you received free

pool entry and a bottle

of water. There were 117

visits by cyclists in the

month, which was deemed

a success by Mr Cartwright

as well as board member

and chairwoman of the

Jellie Park Bike Initiative

Project committee Bridget

Williams.

It was intended the

scheme would be rolled out

across all city council sport

and recreation centres,

such as Pioneer and Graham

Condon.

“We need to think about

how we publicise it like

notices in the car park and

where you lock your bike

up that says thank you for

cycling, have you heard

about our new incentive,”

Mr Cartwright said.

Ms Williams said it

would just take more time

for the public profile to

build.

“I don’t see any harm in

it continuing, people just

need a wee bit of a carrot

. . . good things take time,”

Ms Williams said. The

second trial will have to be

approved by the city council

before it goes ahead in

September.

Scheme progress eases flood worries

RESIDENTS IN the Flockton

area will sleep easier next time

they hear rain pelting against

their roofs.

Key parts of the Dudley Creek

flood mitigation scheme have

now been completed.

Last week saw the final part of

the 800m bypass installed that

will take stormwater from Petrie

St to the Avon River.

More than 500 properties

now have increased flood

protection to restore Flockton

and surrounding areas to preearthquake

levels of flood risk.

The bypass is one of the

biggest in the country and has

been built by laying about 500

box-shaped concrete pipes

end-to-end.

The pipes weigh between four

and five tonne each and measure

4m x 2m.

Most of the time, the bypass

will be dry. It is only designed

to be used when there is heavy

rain and a risk of Dudley Creek

overflowing.

“Now, if we have a heavy

rainfall, we’ll be able to divert

over 8 cu m of flood water every

second from Dudley Creek to

the Avon River,” said city council

land drainage manager Keith

Davison.

“This, combined with all the

other aspects of the scheme

we’ve been working on over the

last few years, means we can now

reassure hundreds of households

that their flood risk has been

significantly reduced.”

There is still work to be done

on other aspects of the flood

remediation scheme, including

the Hills Rd culvert, Shirley

Stream widening and road

renewal in the area.

“While we are thrilled that

Basin, like those

Albans, will benefit

Creek flood

mitigation scheme.

SLOAN

we’ve met our target deadline to

significantly reduce flood risk,

we are very conscious that until

we’re finished all the works,

there will still be disruption and

inconvenience for people in these

areas,” Mr Davison said.

New dog park

an option for

old gravel pit

• By Julia Evans

A DOG park or green space could

replace an empty gravel pit in

Harewood.

The 4127 sq m section at 22

Waimakariri Rd is owned by the

city council.

But it no longer serves any practical

purpose.

During a review of all surplus

city council properties, the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board decided the

gravel pit was worth keeping and

developing for public use.

The other option would be to

dispose of it from city council

ownership.

But the board decided the better

option was to retain it and look at

turning it from a gravel pit into a

green space, dog park or similar

public amenity.

It would be an asset to that part

of Harewood, which is particularly

industrial.

City council staff are investigating

the viability of the green space

ideas and will get the board a

report within six months. It will

then make a decision whether to

go ahead and take that to the city

council.

Common sense over car parks prevails

NOR’WEST NEWS

Readers respond to the

article in the Nor’West

News regarding the city

council’s decision to cut

an incentive programme

that encourages people

to cycle to Jellie Park

Recreation and Sport

Centre

Fendalton city councillor

Jamie Gough writes

about the common sense

approach used by his

community board

On June 20, Nor’West News

reported on the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community

Board’s decision to quash the

removal of car parks outside the

Holmwood Rd shops.

The headline read – Businesses

influence decision to keep car

parks.

That was fair, however, I’d suggest

the headline could have read

– Reality influences decision to

keep car parks.

The plan and staff recommendation

was well-intentioned –

Installation of a pedestrian island

on Holmwood Rd and minor

works resulting in the removal of

six car parks from in front of the

block of shops.

Like any decision, there are

pros and cons.

In this instance my view, the

MEETING: (Left to right) – The Cook Shop owner Elizabeth Fry with David Cartwright, Jamie

Gough and Gerry Brownlee.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

board’s view, and overwhelmingly

the local community’s

view, was that the cons would far

outweigh any pros.

Gerry Brownlee, as local MP,

David Cartwright, as community

board chairman and I met with

the Holmwood Rd business operators

who were horrified by the

proposal.

No one wants safety compromised,

however, the “safety

enhancement” was suggested to

particularly assist road-crossing

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School students.

This was somewhat baffling,

given Rangi Ruru is on Rossall St

– they cross at that street, which

already has a pedestrian island.

Further to this, the lifeblood

of these local businesses is the

convenient on-street parking, so

affecting their viability for a solution

to a non-existent problem

seemed dubious at best.

Parking is already atrocious

here.

I’d suggest if it went ahead

you’d be creating an additional,

yet irrelevant, crossing path to

a block of vacant shops, as they

would probably go out of business.

The local community engaged

with local democracy and the reality

of the situation won the day.

Sometimes major overhauls

occur to ensure common sense

prevails but sometimes it’s deciding

to do nothing that proves to

be the best decision.

Jillian Nuth – Our traffic

is downright dangerous. It’s a

great idea but with my experience

as a pedestrian walking

everywhere, there’s just no way I

would cycle around this city.

Anna Henderson – I didn’t

know about this, would have

done it. Maybe publicise more?

Akio Asakura – Idealist

idiots. People buy cars to be

comfortable in their own space

– music, heater etc. Oh, we

should ride bicycles. No, people

who want to use trains, buses

and bicycles will. However, most

people drive cars.

Sarah Lashbrooke – I

never knew about it either unfortunately.

It sounds great.

Bronwyn Hendry – Maybe

the real question is – can people

who might use the pool afford

cycles? A bit of demographic

research may be indicated here.

Judy Fanning – Who knew?

Sadly, I missed the promo.

FLAME FILES

Rescuing animals

all part of the job

• By Mark Thomas – specialist fire

investigator

I’M NOT sure what got into the

pets of Halswell last week but

over just two days our crews

were called to three animal

rescues in the suburb.

First a dog chased a rabbit

underneath a childcare centre –

and stayed there.

It was retrieved. Second, a

horse was stuck down a bank at

Kennedy’s Bush. With local help

and a vet on-site it was winched

up.

Finally, an old fashioned catup-a-tree

event in Arkwright Pl

shows no record of just what was

done in the radio message log.

It might still be there. But I

doubt it.

To complete this animal report

a mama duck from Bromley,

who is a bit out of season with

her troop of ducklings, fell into

a drain only to be rescued by the

good lads of the Woolston Fire

Station.

A bit early in the year you’d

think. I hope they all survive.

There were fires of course.

BICYCLE: Chairwoman of the Jellie Park Bike Initiative Project

Bridget Williams tried to increase cycling to the centre.

PHOTO: ANDREW KING ​

Tegan Osborne – The amount

of times myself or my partner

has nearly been hit because

drivers aren’t looking where

they’re pulling out with those

cycle lanes down St Asaph St

is crazy. It’s just too dangerous

because drivers and pedestrians

aren’t looking for cyclists. I feel

safer on a road without cycle

lanes. But people just need to

watch where they’re going the

lanes are a good thing because

it makes things somewhat easy,

it’s just the idiots who need

glasses.

Gavin Simon – Its winter.

Not a good time to cycle unless

you are especially dedicated.

Wait for summer for the cycle

usage numbers to increase.

Kylie Mills – I cycle, but it’s

cold I understand why it’s not

used a lot yet.

Readers respond to the

news a new date has been

set for the Trafford St, Harewood

liquor store hearing

Wendy Somerville – Keep

up the fight people – it is just so

unnecessary to have yet another

corner bottle shop. It would be

less than 1km along the road

to a supermarket and a major

franchised bottle shop, so why

another one so close. It just

makes it easier for under age kids

to access alcohol and lowers the

tone of the wee group of shops.

The District Licencing Authority

needs to listen to what people

want – which is no.

Heather Wilkins – New

Zealand has enough of a problem

with alcohol and, certainly, we

do not need any more of these

stores. Why isn’t the public listened

to when these applications

are made, as we are the ones who

live by them.

Marina Garthwaite – Too

many liquor outlets already. No

need for any more. Alcohol is

causing so many problems in our

community already.

A very elderly lady wielding a

walking stick actively prevented

neighbours evacuating her from

her home in Sockburn after a

kitchen fire on June 24.

Consequently, she was treated

for smoke inhalation at the

scene.

Someone in Redwood used a

toaster as a cigarette lighter by

lying it on its side on June 23.

Not too surprisingly the

toaster caught fire.

There’s a thousand ways your

house can catch fire.

But there are many hundreds

of thousands of houses.

Most will never burn.

A bit of common sense makes

it much less likely.

Just how common that common

sense is, I sometimes

wonder.

College band in quest to

make rock contest final

• By Julia Evans

RUN77 – a band made up of

five aspiring musical talents

from Christ’s College – has

won the regional final of the

Smokefree Rockquest.

The band consists of two

brothers – George and Angus

Murray, as well as Angus

Mossman, Henry Phelps and

Robbie Rolleston.

“We went mental,” said

guitarist and lead singer, year

12 student Angus Mossman.

According to Angus, in spite

of some “questionable dance

moves and fist pumps”, their

many hours rehearsing paid

off.

The band practised

tirelessly in the lead up to the

regional final. They would

be at school from 7am every

day to rehearse, focusing on

musicianship as well as stage

presence.

The national finals are on

September 2.

But the national finalists

won’t be announced until the

end of July when the judges

will select eight bands from the

30 regional winners across the

country.

Rock band tutor Nolan

Hungerford said doing well

by accident. “Before the boys

video their original songs on

Thursday, they will have put

in 30 or 40 hours work,” Mr

Hungerford said.

The boys are currently

juggling practice with internal

assessments and two are

also in the school production –

Singin’ in the Rain.

“If you want good results,

you have to put in the proper

work,” Mr Hungerford

said.

“Being in a band is learning

about everything from how to

plug in your guitar, how to hold

an audience, how to do a gig,

as well as all the ins and outs of

the music world.”

Burnside High takes

on Disney classic

• By Julia Evans

FOUR MONTHS of preparation

will come to fruition when

Burnside High School performs

its musical production of the

Disney classic, Beauty and the

Beast.

Performances start next

month but if you drive past the

school now you might notice

a container sitting outside the

Aurora Centre.

Inside is the secret to the production

– the original set used in

the 2006 Showbiz production of

Beauty and the Beast.

With a cast of more than 70

students, head of Arts Faculty

Gavin Hurley and arts consultant

Ravil Atlas were mulling over

which musical to produce this

year.

Their thoughts went to the

talent available and what kind

of production they could afford

to do.

But they’d heard a rumour the

sets were sitting somewhere in a

container on a farm in Darfield.

“We knew we had the perfect

cast available for Beauty and the

Beast but we also understood

that it was a Disney show and

needed the requisite wow-factor

of a production,” said Mr Atlas.

Mr Hurley went to see if the

rumours were true and after a

SCHOOLS

visit to Darfield, the sets were

indeed discovered sitting in a

container.

Arrangements were made to

get the sets back to the school

and the costumes were located

in the North Island, so the show

was booked and practice began.

Both the sets and costumes

were made by Showbiz in

conjunction with Peter Jackson’s

WETA Workshop.

“I saw the National Academy

of Singing and Dramatic Art use

them to great effect a few years

ago in Ashburton and I knew if

we could get the sets and cos-

tumes we could

put on a great show,” Mr Atlas

said.

The student orchestra will be

led by Chris Petch, head of the

music department, with the

direction falling to Mr Atlas, a

former Broadway performer, now

conductor and stage director.

Beauty and the Beast will be

held on July 20, 21, 22, 27, and 28

starting at 7pm.

Matinees are available on July

23 and 29 starting 2pm.

Tickets can be purchased

through the school reception or

by phoning 358 8383.

THUMBS UP: Rangi Ruru Girls’ School’s national chamber

music semi-finalists.

Musicians score well

A TRIO of chamber music

groups from Rangi Ruru Girls’

School have done well in the

prestigious NZCT National

Chamber Music Competition.

Buda and the Pests made up

of students, Isabella Gregory,

Jessie Anderson, Valerie Xiang

and Holly Evans won the South

Island regional final of the contest

last Saturday at The Piano in

Armagh St.

They, along with other finalists

The French Connection made

up of students Sarah Lawrence,

Rachel McSweeney and Victoria

Park and Amadeus Emily Davey,

Lucy Costelloe, Victoria Park,

Rebecca Harris and Anna Bruce

have all been selected for the

national semi-finals.

Only five groups from

Christchurch will head to Wellington

in August for the semifinal

and finals with three of

those coming from Rangi Ruru.

The girls will go up against another

nine groups from around

New Zealand that have been

selected.

Six will turn to 12 and will

progress through to the final.

In addition, Resolutions has

won a place as one of 24 choirs

(one of four from Christchurch)

in the NZCF Big Sing National

Finale, to be held in Auckland

from August 24 to 26.

Director of music at Rangi

Ruru, Janet Kingsbury, said

the school continues to punch

well above its weight in music

competitions and events around

the country.

“With a huge representation

of 13 girls in the New Zealand

Secondary Schools’ Symphony

orchestra, representation in the

NZSO National Youth Orchestra

and New Zealand Secondary

Student’s Choir, internships and

masterclasses with recognised

and talented musicians, our music

scholars continue to proudly

showcase the quite phenomenal

skills at Rangi,” she said.

Hello

Flexible booking hours give families

greater choice

For busy working parents with young children, a local childcare centre that offers

flexibility can make all the difference when they are juggling work schedules and

caring for their family. That’s where the privately run First Learners centres come

to the fore.

Owned and operated by Linda Broekman,

who trained as a kindergarten teacher and has

decades of experience across the early learning

environment, the three First Learners centres

in Shirley, Mairehau and Rangiora cater for all

families’ needs.

“We are very flexible with our booking

hours,” says Linda. “We don’t have set

sessions, so parents and caregivers can leave

their children in our care on any day or days

and for any length of time that suits them.”

The centres cater for children from birth

to six years and are staffed by qualified and

experienced teachers, with a low child to staff

ratio.

“Our philosophy focuses on the needs of

each individual child, and we cater for their

differing developmental needs with separate

sections according to age groups,” Linda

explains.

First Learners offers a free play environment

as well as some structured time according

to age, ensuring that the children are kept

engaged, stimulated and challenged while

at the same time having fun and developing

their social skills, creativity and confidence.

The play areas are spacious and well

equipped, with the children free to access

both indoor and outdoor areas. By allowing

them to make choices about where they want

to be and what activities they want to get

involved in, the staff encourage the children

to explore and be curious and creative.

The centres offer the government subsidised

20 free hours, and these are “absolutely free,

with no extra charges”, Linda says.

And when children are enrolled at any of

the First Leaners centres, the first four weeks

are offered free, with certain conditions.

Details of these can be found on their website,

www.firstlearners.co.nz.

Linda and her staff have an open door

policy, so parents and caregivers are welcome

to call in at any time to inspect the centres and

chat about their child’s needs.

The centres are open Monday to Friday

from 7am to 6pm (Rangiora 7.15am-

6pm). For more information visit www.

firstlearners.co.nz or call Linda on

(03) 313 1242.

St Bede’s get

• By Andrew King

THE PRIDE of running for her

country will help combat the

butterflies in her stomach when

Harriet Bush lines up for her first

international cross-country race

in August.

The St Margaret’s student has

been selected for the 12-strong

New Zealand secondary schools

cross-country team who will

compete in Hobart from August

12-14.

“The sheer excitement of

representing my country in a

sport that I am truly passionate

about fills me with such joy and

pride,” she said.

She said the bigger field she will

be competing in will be daunting

but exciting.

“Obviously, I cannot wait

to get out there and race. The

international experience I will

gain from racing the Australians

will really help me in the future,”

she said.

“Also travelling as a team

creates life-long memories and

friendships that I will treasure

forever.”

She said without the help of her

coach, she wouldn’t be where she

is today.

“I am so thankful for my coach

Maria Hassan who has helped get

me into the position I am,” she

said.

School director of sport

Helen Belcher said they are

“extremely proud” of her success

and her selection is well deserved.

“Harriet is currently our school

cross-country captain and cohead

of sport,” she said

“She is a stunning ambassador

for the school.”

vital win ahead

of challenging

UC rounds

• By Andrew King

ST BEDE’S College secured just

their third win of the season

on Saturday when they beat

Mid-Canterbury Combined

38-17 in round 10 of the UC

Championship.

They ran in six tries, giving

them a much-needed win before

they turn their attention towards

two competition powerhouses in

rounds 11 and 12.

On Saturday, they will head

south to take on a rampaging

Timaru Boys’ High who are

now top of the table after a 90-0

smashing of cross-town rivals

Roncalli Combined.

Then they will have to back up

against Christchurch Boys’ High

who, after having a bye in round

10, have dropped to second position.

St Bede’s coach Gerry Davidson

said both games will test the

skills of his team.

“Timaru has been going well.

We have had some excellent

games over the past 16 years

with them. They will be tough,”

he said.

In between the games will be

the school holiday break before

round 12 on July 22.

“Then we have CBHS who

are a traditional rival and very

tough to beat,” Davidson said.

In other games, St Andrew’s

moved into fifth position on

the table after a 40-12 win over

Waimea Combined.

They will want to keep up

their winning ways when they

take on Burnside on Saturday.

Burnside will want to get off

the donut and grab their first

win of the competition.

Finally, CBHS will take on

Rangiora who are feeling good

after beating St Thomas’ 19-15

on Saturday.

games are played this year.

Coach David Williams said

the game was played in great

hands on the shield at the fulltime

whistle,” he said.

It is the third time the shield,

considered the Ranfurly Shield

In the other games, St Bede’s

“This will be a great chance

to see how we compare with the

other countries in Oceania, especially

Australia. I am thankful

for the opportunity and for my

parents constant support over

the years,” she said.

Burnside and Canterbury

Wildcats coach Lori Ives

work has really paid off.

“She will be a great addition to

to Lincoln, who will be hurting

from Christchurch Boys’ High,

St Andrew’s and St Bede’s colleges.

Eight players were also selected

in the wider training squad, with

six of them from north-west

schools, including one from Burnside

High.

St Andrew’s will host the players

in a training camp from Sunday to

Wednesday before a squad of 25 is

selected to travel to Wellington to

play the under-18 Hurricanes. The

match will be a curtain-raiser for

the Hurricanes v Crusaders on July

15. CBHS have 15 players in the

squad, as well as another two in the

wider training side, including last

minute hero Alex Harford.

Harford has come off the bench

in the last two UC Championship

games for CBHS and kicked the

winning points late in the game.

St Andrew’s have five students

in the squad and two in the wider

group. Reuben Cotter was the only

St Bede’s player picked.

• By Sarla Donovan

A FORMER Papanui High

School student has landed a

lucrative three-year swimming

scholarship in the United

States.

After finishing school last

year, Cassie Wright decided to

take a gap year to focus on her

swimming.

Now she’s off to the

University of Sioux Falls in

South Dakota, where she’ll

have the opportunity to train

and compete with some of

the best swimmers in the

world.

The 19-year-old backstroke

specialist found out in mid-

April and had a week to

accept.

After being so focused on

gaining a scholarship, when it

came to the crunch, it turned

out to be a tougher decision

than she thought.

“The idea of not seeing my

family for nine months at a

time made it hard but I knew

I’d regret it if I didn’t go.”

She’ll be starting in semester

two, on January 2, and is

hoping her family can come

over with her to see where

she’ll be living for the next

three years.

“It would be a lot easier if

they went to see exactly where

I am. It looks cool; they have

a big waterfall in the middle

of town. It’s a bit bigger than

Christchurch but they get all

seasons (like us).”

Swim training will ramp

up from the normal 14

hours she does each week

with the QE II Swim School,

which has trained out of the

Christ’s College pool since the

earthquakes.

“I’m looking forward to

training at higher levels. The

SPORTS

United States have so many

great swimmers, people like

Michael Phelps. It’s just insane

how much faster they are. It’ll

give me the opportunity to

train and compete at a much

higher level because they

take swimming much more

seriously; it’s huge over there.”

The scholarship will pay for

tuition, accommodation and

food, but there’s other costs

like travel and insurance,

which her parents will need to

help out with.

Her mother Janette Wright,

QE II Swim School, said she

was in the process of working

everything out at the

Home, Sea & Between

JoSH BaSHford

The imagery in Josh Bashford’s new body of work was inspired by last summer’s

early morning and late evening fishing adventures. Adventures such as heading

40km offshore to fish for Groper off Banks Peninsula, or ducking down to

Birdlings Flat for a relaxing evening surf casting on the beach, fishing the Rakaia

River or Hurunui river mouth early morning for the elusive Chinook salmon.

These places are of great significance for Josh Bashford. They provide him with

not only a harvest of fresh kai for friends and family, but also the visual material

for his art making.

This visual material is sometimes captured on

a GoPro camera, but more often it’s caught by

simply being physically present in these very

special places. It’s the way a bird may move

through the air, a sudden glimpse of a fish

breaching, or the excitement of hundreds of birds

and kahawai chasing after small bait fish along

the beach. All this strong imagery settles itself

in Josh’s mind and has allowed him to produce

this new body of limited edition woodcut prints

on canvas.

Josh’s latest exhibition named ‘Home, Sea &

Between’ takes place at Little River Gallery from

July 8th until August 2nd.

Supporting your bowel and digestive

function helps prevent disease

It is most important to keep the

whole digestive and elimination

systems of the body working efficiently.

Otherwise toxins that have not been

eliminated set the stage for disease.

Many diseases have been linked with

micro-organisms (virus) or a bacterial

component. Generally these microorganisms

or bacteria can only survive

due to the fact that the environment

they are in is suitable for their survival.

Non eliminated toxins are probably

one of the main causative factors for

their survival. We know that when the

digestive system and bowel function

are poor we have many more health

problems. These include arthritis, digestive

problems like reflux and stomach pain,

bladder infections, chronic skin conditions

such as eczema, psoriasis and rashes, poor

eyesight, pain and inflammation, tumors

and a weakened immune system just to

name a few.

Nature’s Sunshine LBS II contains a

highly effective blend of natural herbs to

support the whole digestive system and it

is especially effective at cleansing the lower

bowel and intestinal tract. It is commonly

used for arthritis, constipation, diarrhea,

digestive problems, dry stool, fever, colds

and influenza, flatulence, gallstones, gout,

skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis,

urinary infections, liver dysfunction,

Candida, weakened immune function and

for people who want to keep their health as

good as possible.

The herbs in LBS II help stimulate the

production of digestive fluids and bile

for efficient digestion. This alone may

help prevent many diseases as a properly

working digestive system will itself

neutralise many disease causing organisms

before they have a chance to cause any

problems. LBS II also stimulates peristaltic

action of the colon effectively cleansing

the colon of any accumulated build-ups of

waste material. It also relaxes abdominal

cramping and spasms, enhances liver

function, purifies the blood, neutralizes

acidic conditions, helps destroy intestinal

parasites and worms, and fights infection.

Keeping your digestive system and

bowels functioning efficiently is definitely

an important step in obtaining and

maintaining good long term health.

Osteoporosis is a serious condition

...but research shows it can be reversed!

Osteoporosis is not taken as a serious

condition by most people! Most people

don’t realise they have osteoporosis until

a fracture happens, as there are usually

no signs or symptoms. Fractures can

commonly be debilitating with chronic

pain and can lead to early mortality.

Fractures kill more women than all

gynaecological cancers put together and

one in six women taken to hospital with

a hip fracture, will not come out alive and

men fare even worse. Around one in three

women and one in twelve men are affected

with osteoporosis.

The most common osteoporotic fractures

are of the wrist, spine, shoulder and hip.

Vertebral collapse is a compression fracture

and causes back pain often with shooting

pains due to compression of the nerves.

Multiple vertebral fractures lead to a

stooped posture, loss of height and chronic

pain with reduced mobility. Hip fractures,

in particular, usually require prompt

surgery, as there is a serious risk associated

with it of deep vein thrombosis and

pulmonary embolism leading to increased

mortality.

Osteoporosis literally means “bones with

holes”. It occurs when bones lose minerals

such as calcium more quickly than the

body can replace them. Although calcium

is essential for bone health other minerals

like magnesium, zinc and trace minerals

like silica, boron, manganese, copper are

essential also. Vitamin’s D3 and K2 have

been shown to be essential in a bone

support program.

A less well known mineral strontium,

that is naturally found in your bones

has been researched and found in

four landmark studies to actually

reverse bone loss when sufficient other

nutrients are present. One study of 1,649

postmenopausal women with osteoporosis

who had had at least one fracture were

divided into two groups. Both groups

took vitamin D and calcium supplements.

One group were also given 680mg/day

of strontium. After the three year study

the strontium group showed an unheard

of average bone growth of 8.1%. This

study shows that osteoporosis can not

only be halted but may even be reversed

and without the side effects of common

osteoporosis drugs.

Further information on how to

support your bone density and overall

health is available from the natural

health specialists at Marshall’s Health

& Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road,

New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are

Always Happy to Help!

BREAKTHROUGH AGAINST OSTEOPOROSIS

Osteoporosis, the weakening of the bone is a serious health threat

that often leads to severe pain, fractures & early mortality. Research

has found the bones can be re-mineralised & strengthened when

the required nutrients are present. Minerals calcium, magnesium &

vitamins D3 & K2 are essential but are not enough in many cases.

A missing link appears to be the mineral strontium.

Research shows strontium to positively affect bone density.

- Supports strong healthy bones, teeth & nails

- Is a naturally occurring mineral often lacking in the

modern diet

- Found in healthy bones & teeth but lacking in people

with osteoporosis

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.

Trees and Power Lines

The responsibilities of tree owners and Orion under the

Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003

Orion New Zealand owns and operates the electricity distribution network in central

Canterbury between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers and from the Canterbury coast

to Arthur’s Pass. Trees touching power lines account for 10-20% of all unplanned power

outages on our network. If you see a tree touching a power line, or any other hazardous

tree condition, please contact us immediately on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

This advertisement provides a general notice of the Electricity (Hazards from Trees)

Regulations 2003 and the dangers of trees near power lines. More detail on these issues

can be found on our website www.oriongroup.co.nz or by phoning us on 03 363 9898.

The Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003

The regulations set out the responsibilities of electricity line companies and tree owners.

The purpose of the regulations is to protect the safety of the public and help to ensure a

secure supply of electricity. The regulations:

• define safe separation distances between trees and power lines

• specifies who is responsible for ensuring clearances are maintained

• places potential liability on the tree owner if any damage or accident occurs due to

trees touching power lines. (Note that the word “trees” includes all types of vegetation,

including shrubs, hedges and climbing vines.)

What are the dangers?

Trees near power lines need to be trimmed or removed for the following reasons:

• children like to climb trees and when trees are close to power lines there is a risk of

serious injury or death

• in severe weather conditions, vegetation can become electrically “live” and may

electrocute anyone or anything that touches it

• while a tree may not touch a power line in fine weather, branches can bend or break in

wind or snow storms, causing serious damage and possibly prolonged power outages

• in dry conditions, electrical sparking caused by branches or windblown debris on lines

may cause fires.

Minimum distances required between trees and power lines

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees and power lines, defined in

the regulations, are outlined in the diagram to the right. A common sense approach, by tree

owners trimming trees early, will generally prevent trees touching power lines.

To maintain a safe distance from power lines some trees require cutting or trimming

more frequently than other trees, but if it is determined that cutting or trimming cannot

satisfactorily meet the requirement then removing the tree is recommended. Other

situations may require trees to be felled because they are at a distance that is considered

to be a hazard due to falling during storms or being diseased.

Orion’s tree management programme

Orion’s tree management programme is largely governed by the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003. Our programme involves education, monitoring and the cut/trim

or removal of trees that threaten to come into contact with power lines. Through this

programme we work with tree owners to minimise the risk of their trees touching power lines.

We currently undertake periodic cutting or trimming of vegetation within the notice zone.

The intent of this cutting or trimming is to support safety and reduce the risk of power

outages. This periodic cutting or trimming by us does not remove the tree owner’s

responsibilities and in the case of fast growing species may not be sufficient to ensure

that trees remain outside of the growth limit zone. You will be notified prior to any periodic

trimming being carried out and the work will be completed by arborists carrying Orion

identification.

If Orion becomes aware of a tree which is within the ‘Notice zone’ (see Tree “A” in the diagram

below) then we are required to issue the tree owner with a Hazard Warning notice. For trees

within the ‘Growth limit zone’ (see Tree “B” in the diagram below) we are required to issue the

tree owner with a Cut or Trim notice.

What is a hazard warning notice?

If a tree is within the “Notice zone” (see Tree “A” in the diagram), we are required to issue a

hazard warning notice to the tree owner.

Tree “A”

Notice

zone

Growth

limit

zone

Tree “B”

Power line Notice zone Growth limit zone

66kV (high voltage) 5.0 metres 4.0 metres

33kV (high voltage) 3.5 metres 2.5 metres

11kV (high voltage) 2.6 metres 1.6 metres

400V/230V (low voltage) 1.5 metres 0.5 metres

Note:

V = Volts; kV = kilo Volts ie 1,000 Volts

1) These distances are from the power line, not the power pole

2) These distances are a minimum and apply in all conditions including high wind or snow

3) In most instances the power lines that go to a house or building are low voltage power

lines. Power lines that go down a street may be low or high voltage.

Trimming trees near power lines

Trimming trees near power lines can be extremely hazardous and the dangers should not

be underestimated. Contact with a power line can cause:

• injury or death to yourself, family or passers by

• injury or death to livestock

• damage to property and other trees

• damage to electrical appliances

• damage to power supply facilities

• damage to third parties.

We recognise that the public is not always experienced in tree trimming, so we are happy

to advise you on this. We can arrange for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your

cost. If, however, you prefer to arrange your own tree trimming, we recommend you hire

professionals with the necessary expertise and safety procedures to competently carry out

this work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within 4 metres of power lines, a close

approach consent is required from Orion before you start. As a tree owner you may be liable

for any damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

A hazard warning notice alerts the tree owner that the tree has encroached the notice zone

and that if it encroaches the “Growth limit zone” (see Tree “B” in the diagram) a cut or trim

notice may be immediately given to the tree owner (see above).

The growth limit zone is the area around a power line which trees must not encroach even

in windy or snow conditions. The notice zone is a distance one metre beyond the growth

limit zone.

What is a cut or trim notice?

If we become aware that a tree has encroached on the “Growth limit zone”, we will give

notice in writing to the tree owner that the tree must be cut or timed to maintain the

distances prescribed in the regulations, and the timeframes for action.

If no action is taken Orion may then trim the tree and seek to recover costs.

Who pays for the cut or trim?

Orion is responsible for the first cut of trees near power lines, where the first cut is on a

property basis, not owner basis. We have already met this obligation by completing a first cut

of vegetation on all our lines.

The tree owner will need to organise and pay for any subsequent and future cuts or trims.

We are happy to provide tree owners with a list of approved arborists who can carry out this

work, and also advise the best solution given the circumstances.

What fines can be imposed?

A tree owner commits an offence where a cut or trim notice is given, and without reasonable

excuse, the tree owner fails to have the tree cut or trimmed and/or fails to advise us of the

time and location of the cut or trim.

A person who commits such an offence is liable on summary conviction to a fine not

exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues, that person is also liable for a further fine of

not more than $500 for every day or part day during which the offence continues.

Contact us if in any doubt about your tree

We aim to work with tree owners to ensure safety is maintained and power outages are

minimised. We will actively work with tree owners to see trees are trimmed or cut before

regulatory powers are applied. However, as we wish to ensure the safety and security of the

public, we will use the regulations where necessary.

Please contact us or an approved Orion tree trimming contractor to help with your trees,

or to discuss your options.
