People power wins over

Harewood liquor store bid

But decision

can be

appealed

• By Julia Evans

“WHEN A neighbourhood rallies, we

can do anything.”

That was reaction of Harewood resident

Colin Fussell after a long-running bid to

set up a liquor store in Trafford St failed.

Nearby residents had opposed the

Harewood Bottle Store fighting it tooth

and nail for more than eight months.

Businessman Samarth Rajeshkumar

Limbachiya’s application for a liquor

licence to operate the Harewood Bottle

Store was declined by the city council’s

district licensing committee last

week.

Said Mr Fussell when contacted by

Nor’West News: “I’m swinging from the

rafters.”

But the battle may not be over as the

decision could be subject to an appeal by

Mr Limbachiya’s if he applies within 10

working days.

The end of that appeal period is August 9.

Nor’West News has not been able to

make contact with Mr Limbachiya to see

if he will appeal.

And Mr Fussell said although that

comes with the territory, the residents

would be ready for another fight so it

would be a waste of the applicant’s money.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

WHEN COMMUNITY awards

are handed out this year, top of

the list in the Harewood area

and beyond should be Colin

Fussell and Bruce Tulloch.

The pair have fought tooth and

nail to keep a new liquor store

out of their neighbourhood.

And they’ve won.

That’s no mean feat given most

new booze outlets in suburbia

get through the liquor licensing

process.

But Colin and Bruce’s

doggedness over the past several

months has paid off. They

haven’t taken a backward step in

the fight against the Trafford St

bid and the huge petition they

put together was the backbone

of a very good community

campaign.

So well done Bruce and Colin

– I hope your community recognises

the sterling and tiresome

effort you have put in.

Crusade to make pupils safer

• By Julia Evans

THE CRUSADERS have touched

down in South Africa and are in

training mode for the weekend’s

Super Rugby final against the

Lions.

But when they get home, players

are set to take on a new challenge

– helping St Albans School

pupils cross the road.

Mother Rachel

Donaldson

is at the helm

of a crusade to

stop red light

runners at the

intersection of

Cranford and

Rachel

Donaldson

Berwick Sts.

The signs she

put up at the

intersection, which read “slow

down,” “St Albans children

matter” and “don’t be that driver

who kills a child” have all been

stolen.

But Mrs Donaldson has far

from given up on her mission.

She said now she’s on the

case of the Crusaders, who have

agreed to run a patrol at the

intersection after school.

“I’ve been in touch and they’ve

agreed, hopefully, it’ll happen

sometime this term,” Mrs Donaldson

said.

Although with their trip to

SAFETY: Red light runners at this Cranford St intersection put St Albans School children in danger

daily. ​

South Africa and final to prepare

for, she said it’s been a tough ask

locking in an exact date.

But something needs to happen

because red light runners

have plagued the intersection for

too long, she said.

That being the case, momentum

behind changing the

attitude of drivers through that

intersection cannot slow down.

“The hope is that people seeing

the Crusaders guiding children

across the road will help spread

the message,” Mrs Donaldson

said.

Her campaign was sparked

when she saw a St Albans Primary

School pupil clipped by

the wing mirror of a car driving

through a red light at the intersection.

“The car brushed right past

him,” Mrs Donaldson said.

And the intersection has since

been the target for a police sting

that saw 17 tickets issued to dangerous

drivers within an hour.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board is also behind Mrs

Donaldson and St Albans School

parents.

It has asked city council staff

to do a safety audit of the streets

around the school, including the

Cranford St intersection.

It is also setting up a meeting

involving city council staff,

board members, police, school

staff and parents to come up

with permanent solutions to the

problem.

In Brief

NEW LONE STAR

The city’s fourth Lone Star

restaurant will become the

latest tenant at Harewood’s

Spitfire Square. The new

restaurant is on track to open

at the airport development in

September. The flooring has

been completed and the kitchen

area has just been finished. The

restaurant is currently seeking

to obtain its liquor licence

through the city council.

TRAFFIC DELAYS

Delays of up to 20min are

possible at the Russley Rd and

Memorial Ave intersection from

August 4-6. Motorists travelling

to and from the airport are

advised to plan ahead and allow

plenty of extra travel time.

Alternatively, motorists should

consider taking other routes

such as Harewood Rd or the

southern airport access road.

CLUB LEASE RENEWED

Burnside Rugby Football Club

has some certainty over its

future at Burnside Park. The

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board approved

the club’s renewed lease of the

rooms at the park for the next

33 years. The lease is broken

into three terms of 11 years

so the club will have to seek

renewal at the end of each term.

Application lodged to use

community centre site

• By Julia Evans

THE SITE of the Shirley

Community Centre is set to

become the new home of Downer

Group.

The space has been used as

headquarters for various different

construction companies

since the centre was demolished

in 2012.

And with its rebuild not

expected to begin until 2019, the

city council is processing the

latest application for its use.

Downer is set to occupy the

10 Shirley Rd site as part of the

Dudley Creek Flood Remediation

work.

Downer’s application said that

the established facilities at the

site are close to where it needs to

work and would be ideal.

However, there will be implications

for neighbours including

construction traffic and heavy

vehicles, noise, dust and run-off.

But Downer said it will limit

unnecessary vehicle movement

and use the existing environmental

management plan.

And it has a dedicated communications

team to deal with all

concerns and issues.

Working hours at the site will

be from 7am to 6pm Monday to

Friday and 7.30am to 12.30pm on

Saturdays.

The Dudley Creek work is expected

to finish in May 2018.

It comes after residents in

Guild St had issues with dust,

noise and run-off from neighbouring

Worthington Contracting.

However, the company left the

area to appease residents and

moved to a new site in North

Canterbury.

Warm welcome for principal

• By Julia Evans

BELFAST SCHOOL has

welcomed its new principal

with a special Mihi Whakatau,

a Maori welcoming.

Sue Elley, who is taking up

the role, said it was the most

wonderful experience.

She replaces veteran principal,

Peter Simpson, who sat at

the helm of the school for 23

years.

Belfast pupils welcomed

Mrs Elley with a kapa haka

performance and speeches.

And students and staff from

Hornby High School, where

she worked as the assistant

principal for four years, were

also there.

The Hornby students also

performed as a kapa haka

group.

“It brought a really nice

closure to that part of my life.

My previous students physically

took me to the new school,” she

said.

Above all, the mihi really introduced

Mrs Elley to the overwhelming

sense of community

that the Belfast School has.

“It’s such a strong community

based school . . . Belfast isn’t really

a suburb, it is its own town

on the edge of a city,” she said.

But the new role, will bring

Motorway plan fight continues

Community board

opposes extra

lane across

Waimakariri River

• By Julia Evans

THE FIGHT against a third

Northern Motorway lane

continues for the Papanui-Innes

Community Board.

The board fears traffic

build-up in St

Albans, and the

surrounding

areas, particularly

Cranford

St, if a third

southbound lane

Ali Jones

on the Northern

Motorway gets

the green light.

In a submission to Environment

Canterbury opposing the

additional lane, the board said

there had not been enough investigation

done into mitigating

the traffic effects.

“The board still believes the

downstream effects need looking

into before anyone can celebrate

the easing of congestion,

or the assumption that congestion

will ease,” chairwoman Ali

Jones said.

LAwyERS

PROPOSAL: The Papanui-Innes Community Board fears

downstream congestion if the third lane is approved.

The proposal is an additional

high occupancy vehicle lane

that will run into the city across

the Waimakariri River bridge in

a bid to ease building commuter

congestion.

If done in conjunction with

work on the Northern Corridor,

it will set taxpayers back around

$20 million.

But if not, it could cost up to

$34 million.

And without proper

investigation into the

downstream effects, the

board will remain staunchly

opposed.

“The board opposes the

construction of a third lane on

the bridge until such a time as

the downstream effects of the

proposed lane have been fully

investigated, consulted on with

the community and mitigation

measure put in place,” the submission

said.

But that is not all the board is

concerned about.

It is also concerned the

third lane will be underutilised

and too difficult to enforce that

only high occupancy vehicles

use it.

Although it did acknowledge

the effort undertaken to address

the congestion on the motorway.

The board thinks the money

would be better spent on running

a light rail trial from North

Canterbury.

“It’s a lost opportunity,” Ms

Jones said.

Board member and city councillor

Mike Davidson abstained

from the submission due to a

conflict of interest, as he sits on

the hearings panel.

But the rest of the board,

which included Ms Jones, deputy

chairwoman Emma Norrish

and members John Stringer,

Jo Byrne and city councillor

Pauline Cotter all supported the

submission.

ECan opened the proposal for

public feedback until July 13.

It received about 180

submissions, which are finalised

and summary report of the

submissions is being written.

Public hearings are scheduled

to be held on August 7 and 14 at

ECan’s council chamber.

People power

wins over

liquor store bid

•From page 1

“Our opposition will be ready

and waiting,” Mr Fussell said.

He and fellow Trafford St resident

Bruce Tulloch championed

a petition against the application

that was signed by 1144 people.

And the city council received 86

further public objections before

the hearing on July 13 and 14.

Mr Tulloch said there are more

than enough options for buying

liquor in the area so there was no

logic behind granting yet another

licence.

He thanked everyone who had

contributed to the campaign.

Mr Fussell said while this battle

was won, the war is not over.

“The battle has been won but we

need to address the greater issue

in other neighbourhoods who

are facing the same problem,” Mr

Fussell said.

In its report, the licensing committee

said granting the application

would be detrimental to the

neighbourhood.

“We have formed the opinion

that amenity and good order

would be reduced by more than

a minor amount. The foreseen

reduction may not be great but it

is likely to impact on the people

who live in the vicinity,” the

report said.

retired but after living overseas

understand why this has happened.

Merivale Mall is dead, the

there is no culture or atmosphere

the idea of having the chance to

The Palms gives back to schools

WITH HELP from the nearby

mall, Banks Avenue Primary

School will soon be able to

improve its new radio station.

The Palms Shopping Centre’s

“Shop for your School” competition

drew entries from 11

primary schools, with each planning

to use the prize money for a

different goal.

Throughout June, families who

signed up were able to exchange

their shopping receipts from The

Palms for points for their school.

In first place was Banks

Avenue School, which received

$3000 for its efforts, Mairehau

Primary School came in second,

winning $2000, and third was

Queenspark School with $1000.

Marshland School and Shirley

Primary School each received

$500.

“It’s been a great competition

for getting the whole school

involved in a common cause,

and the prize money is an added

bonus,” said Toni Burnside, principal

of Banks Avenue School.

“We have encouraged the

children to bring their receipts

to school to get a heart token,

and when they earn 50 tokens,

they get a values wrist band for

togetherness.”

As for the prize money, Mrs

Burnside said the fun has already

been had.

“As a school, we are always

short of money so spending it

would not be difficult. We have

just set up a school radio station

and would love to use the money

for two chairs for our radio

hosts,” she said.

But how the rest of the money

is spent is up to the children and

their families, who did all the

hard work.

Runner-up Mairehau Primary

School also enjoyed the school

spirit of the competition.

Bridey Hentschel, chairwoman

of the Mairehau home

and school committee, said the

school encouraged students to

bring in their receipts and the

school donated them collectively.

“We are so grateful for the

prize money and hope to use it

for more sports equipment and

for school trips,” Ms Hentschel

said.

Queenspark Primary School

hopes to use the money for

learning resources.

Janet Vincent, The Palms

Shopping Centre marketing

manager, said the mall really

wanted to reward these schools

for supporting their local shopping

centre and community.

“Our relationship with Banks

Ave is a very special one and they

are close to our hearts,” she said.

elements of “gamification” into

learning.

The CREST programme was

designed around students earning

experience points to go up a

“We take science and technology

very seriously at Selwyn

said.

Mr Christie stresses the importance

of the subjects in his

are living in a time of unbelievable

technological upheaval.

“We want our students to not

Both Tim Wraight and Ché Vincent live in the Motueka region in the top of the

South Island, an area of diverse landscapes and environments from which to

draw inspiration for their work.

Tim’s carved wooden work for ‘Changing Stories’ exhibition explores the

traditions associated with the reverence given to relics and remains, using

the cultural practices of making intricate containers that different cultures

fashion to hold these precious objects, Maori wakahuia (treasure boxes)

and wakatupapaku (bone boxes) and European reliquaries which held the

bones of saints, are the starting point for these pieces. Found remains of

creatures and objects from the natural environment in his home area. Tim

has constructed stories around fictional and whimsical; taking an object and

giving it a new narrative and honouring its previous existence.

Ché’s work for this exhibition is formed by his

passion for botany and natural processes;

exploring the patterns created by plant forms

by the way water changes and repeats a flow

pattern by decay and renewal. He uses recycled

copper panels through a process of serendipitous

experimentation. Ché has developed a fluid and

intuitive approach and has developed methods of

Papanui teens karate success

PAPANUI HIGH students

Britney Aldridge, Jade Taylor

and Aidan Batt all had

success at the national karate

championships in Wellington.

Aldridge, 18, won gold in the

female 18 and over, under-55kg

kumite, and the female under-21,

under-65kg kumite categories,

as well as bronze in the under-21

kata.

She said the victories were an

incentive, especially now that she

is ranked No 1 in her grades, to

keep working and getting better

at her craft.

“For me to be labelled and

ranked as a national champ is

awesome . . . and it just makes

me train even harder to make

sure I stay on top,” she said.

“Ever since I was a kid, the

Olympics had always been a

dream of mine. And now that

our sport is in the games, I hope

that 2024 will give me a chance

to make my dream a reality.”

Taylor, 16, won gold in the female

14-17 team kata and female

14-17 team kumite categories, as

well as silver in the female 16-17,

58kg-plus kumite category.

“Being a tomboy and having

two left feet meant ballet wasn’t

an option,” Taylor said. “It feels

good to achieve when you have

put a lot of time and training

into it.”

Batt, 14, received a silver medal

for his efforts in the male 14-17

team kata category. He said it

was all about the team getting a

result.

“Knowing my team and

I trained hours upon hours

perfecting our routine to end up

second in New Zealand is a great

success,” he said.

The event was held from July

15-16 and involved more than

700 competitors across 150

categories.

Roberts grabs gold at schools champs

• By Andrew King

ST ANDREW’S College student

Oisin Roberts fought his way

to a gold medal at the New

Zealand secondary schools judo

tournament in Lincoln.

Roberts, 17, won the under-

73kg category of the tournament

held from July 15-16, which adds

to his already impressive tally of

medals.

“The first thing that went

through my head was probably

relief that all my fights were over

and I had managed to win them

all,” Roberts said.

In total, he has won two gold

and three silver medals during

his time competing in national

tournaments, as well as a bronze

medal in 2015 at the Oceania

judo championships.

The win allows him to look

ahead to bigger and better

events, such as the Olympics and

Commonwealth Games, which

he is keen to compete in.

“It would be awesome if I

could compete at the Olympics

or Commonwealth Games, but

I still need to consider whether

this is where I want to take my

ST ANDREW’S rowers Ben

Taylor and Thomas Russel

have touched down in Trakai,

Lithuania, and tomorrow will

begin their quest with the junior

men’s coxless quad for world

championship glory.

The pair departed on July 23

with the 21-strong New Zealand

team who will compete in eight

events at the Junior World Rowing

Championships.

Taylor and Russel had both

been training at the New Zealand

Rowing Gallagher High-Performance

Centre at Lake Karapiro in

preparation for the regatta.

They were a part of the winning

St Andrew’s Maadi Cup team

which not only brought back the

top prize for the first time in the

college’s history, but the Springbok

Shield as well.

Both said they are incredibly

proud to be able to represent their

country in a sport they love.

judo and how I would balance

this with the rest of my life,” he

said.

Roberts father, who lives in

Somerfield, got him into the

sport at an early age and he

loved the competitive side of it.

“When you get to stand at the

top of the podium, that is when

you realise that all your hard

work was worth it in the end,”

he said.

“Both my parents and my

coach said that I had fought very

well and thoroughly deserved

the medal. My parents also said

that they were very proud of

me.”

• By Andrew King

BURNSIDE HIGH will watch

from the sideline tomorrow

night with the bye, after

moving into second position in

the Connetics first XI football

competition with a 5-1 win over

Christ’s.

Burnside, also known as The

Beasts, Cashmere High and St

Thomas’ all moved up a notch

on the table after league leaders

St Andrew’s were beaten 1-0 by

St Thomas’ last week.

St Andrew’s dropped from

first to fourth and will be looking

to get back to their winning

ways when they take on 11thplaced

Middleton Grange at

4pm tomorrow at the Christchurch

Football Centre, where all

games are played this year.

Papanui High secured their

third win of the season beating

Riccarton High 3-2. They now

turn their attention to Christ’s

at 7.30pm tomorrow.

Christchurch Boys’ High,

who are coming off a 2-0 loss to

Lincoln High, will look to grab

three points from Shirley when

they face each other tomorrow

night at 5.45pm.

Sixth-placed St Bede’s will

look to continue to nip at the

heels of the league leaders when

they take on struggling Rangiora

at 4pm after beating Shirley

last week 2-0.

Burnside

claims

first win

• By Andrew King

BURNSIDE HIGH recorded its

first win of the season in the UC

Championship with a tight 33-31

victory over Mid-Canterbury

Combined on Saturday.

With two rounds to go, it

would have been a nervous time

for the boys’ from Memorial Ave

thinking a winless season was in

store for them.

Down 18-0 at halftime, the

thought of another defeat must

have stirred something inside

Burnside as they came out and

scored 33 points in the second

stand giving them a bonus point

win moving them off the bottom

of the table.

In the other games,

Christchurch Boys’ High beat

Marlborough Boys’ 20-14 in

Blenheim which was enough to

retain second position on the

table, two points behind Timaru

Boys’ High.

CBHS has a game in hand

and could go top of the table in

the final round with a win, as

Timaru has the bye.

St Andrew’s is nipping at

the heels of the top four with a

17-12 win over St Thomas’ on

Saturday, although it does not

get much easier for the boys

from Papanui Rd with thirdplaced

Christ’s this Saturday and

Nelson College the week after

that.

St Bede’s sat out round 14 with

the bye and will look to make a

strong finish to the season when

they play Waimea Combined

on Saturday before heading

to Timaru to take on Aoraki

Combined.

Points table:

Timaru Boys’, 55, 1; Christchurch

Boys’ High, 53, 2; Christ’s,

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

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

Remove

cooking smells

and steam!

Remote

extraction fans

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.

GO-Advanced

Omega-PC Fish Oil

It is well known how important

omega-3 fatty acids are to good

health. It is estimated most people

don’t even get a third of the

recommended omega-3 fatty acids

on a weekly basis. Countries with

a higher amounts of omega-3 in

their diet are known to have lower

cardiovascular disease and, in

many cases, better overall health.

Recent research has shown

inflammation to be a big part of

disease and the ageing process.

Fish oil can help reduce

inflammation by providing

essential fatty acids required

by the body to heal itself and

maintain good health. Until now

most fish oil only contained omega-3 fatty

acids in triglyceride form. Fish, however,

naturally contain omega-3 in triglyceride

and phospholipid form but until recently

the phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC sets new

standards in fish oil as it contains

omega-3 attached to both triglycerides

and phospholipids. Studies have shown

GO-Advanced Omega-PC to be far better

absorbed, leading to increased levels of

vital omega-3 fatty acids in the organs

thru giving the potential for more health

benefits.

121 Skyhawk Road

GO-Advanced Omega-PC is produced

from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish

using a new advanced and more natural

cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found

in fish. It is manufactured to high GMP

standards and is molecularly distilled to

remove any containments, toxins and

heavy metals.

Further info on this revolutionary new

fish oil and its benefits is available from

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,

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.

Bringing You the Best in Natural Health!

NOR’WEST NEWS

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.

support your bone density and overall

health is available from the natural

health specialists at Marshall’s Health

NOT all FISH OIl IS CreaTed eQUal!

ONLY GO OMEGA-PC retains the natural Phospholipids that have been shown to be so beneficial for Good

Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL!

Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally

Third Aged Tours

Taking people aged over 50 on trips

around New Zealand and the world for

nearly 20 years has earned Third Age Tours

a brag book that Director Brenda Corby-

Yarrall says “businesses would give their

eye teeth for.’’

“Taking small groups of 10 – 24 people

means I can operate the tour in a relaxed,

companionable manner. We have an

absolute blast when we’re away. It’s all about

having fun”.

“Most of my trips are run annually

because they’re so

popular, but I’m always

adding new destinations

- like “Sicily, South Italy

& Vatican” + “Cuba”, as

people ask for them.’’

Brenda checks out

all accommodation

before booking it, and

ensures the party spends

at least a few nights at

each place. “That way

you don’t feel like you’re

living out of a suitcase.’’

Many clients now have

made over 20 tours with

us, one has completed a

whopping 27 tours.

“My clients tell me

they keep coming back

because of the size of the groups and our

relaxed manner. My motto is ‘There are no

strangers, only friends waiting to meet.’

We gather together for breakfast at

8.30am which sets us up for the day and

everybody thinks is a very civilised hour.’’

Experience expert

dental care

Six fabulous years and still going strong!

The team of Fendalton Dental Surgery

takes this opportunity to thank their

loyal patients, the supportive Canterbury

dental fraternity and the wonderful local

community. They celebrate yet another

glorious anniversary after being forced

to relocate to this premises after the

earthquakes in 2011. It used to be called

Cambridge Dental Surgery while they

were in the CBD but since moving to this

lovely Fendalton suburb in July 2011.

Fendalton Dental Surgery, on the

high profile corner of Idris & Glandovey

Roads has been looking after the dental

needs of the local community as well

as the wider Christchurch area since

2011. Dentists Keith Chiang and Zohnia

McNeill and Oral Health Therapist, Amy

Lee offer a complete range of dental

and oral care services, all in a very calm

and relaxed environment. Supporting

them are dental nurses Simone and Jola

and the ever-efficient highly organised

practice manager, Aysha who bring with

them their very own style and range of

competencies in each and every aspect.

“We listen carefully to what our patients

tell us so we can address each of their

dental problems and help them achieve

good oral health,” says Keith.

A major component of Keith’s work

is under IV sedation, which is available

for people that are very nervous about

visiting the dentist. He has performed

more than 2000 Intravenous sedation

procedures and the clinic is equipped

with the latest advanced equipment for

sedation monitoring. He has a special

interest in Oral Surgery, Impacted

wisdom teeth, surgical extractions,

Placement of Implants and Intra venous

sedation.

For people with damaged or missing

teeth, Zohnia will discuss with them the

options of having crowns, permanent

implants or dentures fitted, all of which

have the added advantage of helping

clients regain their functional bite as

well as improve their smile and overall

confidence. She has a special interest in

Cosmetic dentistry, Root Canals and

Geriatric dentistry. Her calm approach

and special individual attention to detail

has helped deal with most common dental

issues in her patients.

Amy Lee, our Oral Therapist and

Hygienist specialises in the overall

maintenance of healthy teeth and gums.

She educates her patients on how to look

The team at Fendalton Dental Surgery

after their oral health, which if not taken

care of can have detrimental effects on

their overall health. The gum disease,

Gingivitis is one of the main reasons

why people lose their teeth and can be

a social stigma with bad breath, while

research also indicates that gum disease

or otherwise called Gingivitis in pregnant

women can mean a higher chance of

premature birth and low birth weight.

Dry mouth or reduced salivary flow,

which is caused by certain medications

that people take can also lead to gum

problems and tooth decay. By visiting the

hygienist regularly, gum problems can be

prevented, and consequently tooth decay

as well as more serious health issues can

be avoided.

Fendalton Dental Surgery will soon add

to its suite of advanced dental equipment

with a state-of-the-art 3D CT scanner,

which will be used to scan jaws, enabling

the dentists to give a better diagnosis of

clients’ dental problems.

The Fendalton Dental Team invites

you and new patients to visit their

practice and experience Expert Care as

being one of their valued patients. Easily

accessible, highly visible and with plenty

of on-site parking, Fendalton Dental

Surgery, on the corner of Glandovey and

Idris road, is open Monday to Friday

8.30am-5pm. Phone 351 1188 for an

appointment, or simply call in.

THE RYMAN HEALTHCARE SEASON OF

Juliet

A NEW BALLET

by Francesco Ventriglia

Isaac Theatre Royal

25 – 26 August

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR: PATRICIA BARKER


FALL IN LOVE

THIS WINTER

WITH THE ROYAL

NEW ZEALAND

BALLET’S

W O R L D

PREMIERE OF

R O M E O A N D

JULIET

A sunlit piazza, the candlelit corner of

a noble ballroom, a moonlit balcony…

when young lovers meet, the world is

stilled… then changed forever.

Italian choreographer Francesco Ventriglia creates

a new production of Shakespeare’s great love story,

especially for the Royal New Zealand Ballet. This

brand new ballet, with exquisite sets and costumes

by Oscar-winning designer James Acheson (The Last

Emperor, Dangerous Liaisons) brings to life all of

the splendour and seduction of Renaissance Verona,

swept up in Prokofiev’s exhilarating, passionate

score. Join us as we follow the Montagues and

Capulets in Shakespeare’s original tale of two starcrossed

lovers though desire, struggle and tragedy.

Sure to be the highlight of the 2017 arts calendar

this is a production not to be missed.

CHOREOGRAPHY / FRANCESCO VENTRIGLIA

COSTUME & SET DESIGN / JAMES ACHESON

MUSIC / SERGEI PROKOFIEV

LIGHTING DESIGN / JON BUSWELL

DRAMATURG / MARIO MATTIA GIORGETTI

CHOREOGRAPHIC ASSISTANT / GILLIAN WHITTINGHAM

CONDUCTOR / HAMISH MCKEICH

ACCOMPANIED BY THE CSO

The RNZB is absolutely thrilled to have the musicians

of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra joining

us once again for our Christchurch performances.

Christchurch born Hamish McKeich will conduct as

the CSO brings Prokofiev’s beautiful ballet score

to life, filling the Isaac Theatre Royal with the

unbeatable sound of live orchestral music.

Choreographer Francesco Ventriglia, dancer Madeleine

Graham and Leading Guest Artist Sir Jon Trimmer at

Ryman Healthcare’s Anthony Wilding village.

Ryman Healthcare is thrilled to once again

be associated with the creation of a major

production for the Royal New Zealand Ballet.

Ryman Chief Executive Gordon MacLeod said

residents and staff were planning a whole

lot of Romeo and Juliet-themed events to

celebrate the season.

“We’re delighted to be able to support the

RNZB’s production of Romeo and Juliet. We

think our residents – and the rest of New

Zealand – are in for a real treat. Our ballet

company is a national treasure and it is a

pleasure to be able to support the company

as they take their performance nationwide.’’

Mr MacLeod said staff at Ryman’s 30 villages

had a whole lot of events lined up to make

sure everyone gets into the swing of things.

Activities planned include balcony decorating

competitions, a grand masquerade ball in

the style of the Capulet house, Shakespeare

quizzes and residents would be encouraged

to recount their own memories of young

romance.

As part of the partnership with RNZB

members of the company visit Ryman’s

villages to meet residents unable to get out

to the performances.

“Romeo and Juliet is doubly exciting because

Madeleine Graham – who we have sponsored

for a number of years – is dancing the role of

Juliet! We feel like she’s part of the family.’’
