Plea to

‘residents

rejected

• By Julia Evans

FENDALTON residents have

failed in a bid to get motorists to

stop taking short cuts down their

street.

Rochdale St residents concerned

with rat-running in the area called

for the street to be made “residents

only” from Straven Rd during

an on-site meeting with the city

council.

But the city council said it would

not be possible.

Reporting back to the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board, city council

staff said: “Making Rochdale St

residents only at Straven Rd is not

appropriate as it is a public road.”

The meeting was attended by

residents from Harakeke and

Rochdale Sts, city council staff,

and Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board deputy

chairwoman Helen Broughton,

said Aaron Haymes, city council

manager operations transport.

Intersection wager causes stoush

• By Julia Evans

A STOUSH has broken out

between Aaron Keown and

John Stringer over a contentious

Harewood intersection.

City councillor Keown has

dismissed Papanui-Innes Community

Board member John

Stringer’s claim that the Gardiners,

Breens and Harewood Rds

intersection does not need traffic

lights.

Mr Stringer wrote an opinion

piece for last week’s Nor’West

News where he said upgrading

the intersection was “not a local

priority”. He said there had been

too much coverage on one side

of the argument.

But Cr Keown said that’s simply

not true.

“As the local city councillor,

I’ve been contacted by a lot of

residents about ‘their’ issue,

which is the Breens, Harewood

and Gardiners intersection, and

I am merely their spokesperson,”

he said.

Mr Stringer lives near the

intersection but is a member of

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board, which does not cover the

junction.

He suggested a traffic island

would be enough to “solve his

[Cr Keown’s] problem”.

But the city councillor said

MONOPOLY: John Stringer “claimed” city councillor Aaron

Keown’s (right) $100 reward. ​

installing traffic lights at the

intersection was not just an idea

he had come up with.

“The idea of traffic lights is not

mine but an idea of the people I

represent and I support them,”

he said.

Cr Keown said it is his job to

speak on behalf of the residents

of Harewood, who have asked

for this upgrade for years.

A petition signed by more

than 1000 people would suggest

lights are what they want.

“As elected members, it is

our job to speak on behalf of

our residents, and I’ve been

contacted about this intersection

more than any other issue ever

in my 10 years of being elected,”

Cr Keown said.

Mr Stringer said the intersection

at Johns and Harewood Rds

is more dangerous than the Gardiners,

Breens and Harewood

Rds intersection. He “claimed”

Cr Keown’s offer of $100.

The city councillor had offered

$100 to anyone who could

come up with a more dangerous

intersection than Gardiners,

Harewood and Breens Rds. But

Cr Keown said the Johns and

Harewood Rds intersection is

not in the city council’s jurisdiction,

nor is it more dangerous.

“I’ve only ever had a couple of

mentions of the Johns Rd and

Harewood Rd intersection as it’s

not even our jurisdiction – it is a

New Zealand Transport Agency

corridor,” he said.

Cr Keown said Mr Stringer’s

Monopoly money would not

help the issue at all.

“The real money needs to be

stumped up for an intersection

upgrade that the people of Harewood

say is long overdue,” Cr

Keown said.

Testimonials:

Doug Garlick

of Westport has been a

client of Greg's since the

late 1990's. Doug's

hearing loss is mainly

work related and has

been deteriorating over

the years. "I have tried

many hearing aids over

the years but I am totally

sold on my present

hearing aids. They are the

best yet and you hardly

know you are wearing

them. I hear sounds I

have not heard for many

years" says Doug. Doug

found the service

"fantastic" and "the whole

process and follow-ups

were excellent, friendly,

and informative."

Les Singer of Hokitika is

another very satisfied

client since 1995. Les lost

his hearing many years

ago and has worn a

number of hearing aids

over the years with each

model better than the

previous one. Wearing

hearing aids helps Les

communicate and

understand

conversations, particularly

with his wife, family, and

grandchildren. Hearing

aids has improved quality

of life and reduced stress

for all concerned. Les is

very happy with the

excellent service provided

GENERAL ELECTION 2017 – MEET THE CANDIDATES

Ilam electorate

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

EMERGENCY EYE

SURGERY FOR JESS

Meet “Jess” an 8 year old black and

white moggy with real attitude,

who recently flew down from

Nelson to see Dr Steve Heap for

emergency surgery on her left eye.

Her primary vet at Alabama Vets,

had seen her a week earlier for a

painful superficial ulcer ( probably

from a cat scratch injury). Jess

was very hard to examine so

was started on topical eye

ointment and anti-inflammatory

medication. Jess was otherwise

well. She returned 2 days later as

her owners couldn’t medicate

the eye either. By this stage her

left eye was producing a bloody

infected discharge, had swelled

up and the ulcer had grown in

size. Her vet added in antibiotic

tablets and more medication

for inflammation, swelling

and pain but the next day the

ulcer looked no better. Jess

needed to be sedated as the

vet couldn’t examine this eye

with her awake. Her eye was

stained with fluorosein( as can

be seen in the attached photo)

and had become non healing

and so given the difficulty

in medicating Jess it was thought a better

way to go was surgery in Christchurch with

DrSteve Heap.

So Jess flew to Steve and was operated on

immediately to prevent the eye collapsing

and impaired vision. Steve performed

a lamellar keratectomy to remove the

dead, soft, spongy tissue on edges of the

deep stromal corneal ulcer. A conjunctival

flap was sutured over the large defect

to allow the perfect environment for

healing, meaning a good blood supply and

protection from environmental allergens.

Due to the difficulty in checking the healing

progress of Jess’s eye it was thought a good

idea to board her at McMaster & Heap vets

until Steve was happy that the ulcer was

healing. As we were still unable to get near

her eye to apply drops, long acting injections

were given for ease and for her comfort.

Needless to say she needs a head collar worn

to stop her irritating her eye, undoing all

Steve’s good work.

So far so good 4 days out from her surgery.

She is eating up a storm and feisty again

which means she’s back to her happy self.

Steve has given the all clear and she flies

home on Friday to her eagerly awaiting,

doting parents.

Steve sees at least 10 eye referrals daily and

many of these patients end up needing

surgery. Eye injuries can’t wait if the end

result is to save the eye and Steve will often

come into the clinic on his days off to see

emergency cases. The take home message

here is don’t wait with eye problems – get

them looked at early by your vet, as two eyes

are always better than one!!

Ilam electorate

David Lee - Green

Party

David is a native Cantabrian

with strong roots in

Ilam.

Connection and connectedness

are fundamental

to his vision for a better

Christchurch and a better

New Zealand.

A career urban planner,

David understands how

the physical world fosters

and sustains personal and

community wellbeing. Relationships

with our environment,

and connection to

the world at large, provide a

sense of identity, affiliation,

and belonging.

As MP for Ilam, David

will get Canterbury back

onto the government’s

agenda. Rebuilding critical

infrastructure and services

for a 21st-century city –

and beyond, investment

in transport networks and

clean water are essential for

Cantabrians to enjoy the

standard of living that all

New Zealanders deserve.

In central and local

government roles David

has been responsible for

environmental policy and

transport planning.

He is currently an elected

representative, leading

climate change, technology,

innovation and enterprise –

the way forward to address

environmental sustainability.

Raf Manji -

Independent

It’s been my privilege

to serve you as a local

councillor since 2013.

Much has been achieved

in that time but we are

still far from securing the

thriving 21st-century city

we envisaged back in

2011.

It’s been five years

since the blueprint and it’s

time for a reset and new

leadership.

You have two votes to

cast this election – one

for the party you want to

lead the next Government

and one for the person

you think can best

represent Ilam and

Christchurch’s interests in

Parliament.

As an independent I

will be free to focus on

local issues, such as water

quality, transport, health

and housing, as well as

continuing to make sure

the next Government

finishes the rebuild job

properly.

Christchurch needs a

strong, independent voice

in Wellington,

and someone who can

work with the next

Government.

And that’s why I’m

asking you to vote for

me as your electorate

candidate for Ilam.

Martin Frauenstein –

Conservative

Martin settled in Wellington

New Zealand in

1996.

Since 2011 he and his

wife have lived in the

Ilam electorate. He was a

solutions architect at the

CDHB for four and a half

years, and has since reestablished

his IT consultancy.

Martin holds a strong

sense of justice, and the

belief that offenders should

be held accountable for

their actions while being

rehabilitated to be

reintegrated as productive

members of society.

He has been an active

volunteer with Corrections

since 2012.

He holds the preservation

of life and strong

families dear. As a pro-life

advocate, supports the 40

Days for Life movement.

Voting, is a cornerstone

of democracy – the

voice of the people.

The Conservative Party

principle of binding

citizens-initiated referenda

therefore resonates

strongly with him.

The Conservative principles

of democracy, family

and justice offer voters the

chance to “hit the reset

button” on the future of

New Zealand.

Martin Thomas Francis

– Independent

My name is Martin

Francis, I am 75-years-old

and live in the ‘red zone’.

I stand for the people

affected by the earthquakes

and who live every

day, dealing with the

Governments deception by

ruling areas of Christchurch

to be ‘red zones.’

The Quake Outcast

group has now won five

court rulings in its favour,

at their own cost, the

Supreme Court deeming

that the red zone zoning is

unlawful.

The land and those

improvements that

have been obtained by

the Government is by

deception and can now

be said to be ‘proceeds of

crime’. I stand to fight to

right the wrong.

In the red zone, all

sections and improvements

insured or uninsured, to be

treated as equal.

Gerry Brownlee

announced to the media

a game to push uninsured

off their land, without

paying for improvements.

I stand to push for

repairing the red zone

has made. Doing it once,

doing it right.

GENERAL ELECTION 2017 – MEET THE CANDIDATES

Christchurch Central electorate

NOR’WEST NEWS

Nicky Wagner –

National

My focus has, and will

continue to be, making

Christchurch a city of

opportunity for all.

The last six years have

been tough and we still face

many unique challenges,

but I think we all want the

same thing — a vibrant,

people-friendly community

where our families can

thrive.

We want a great

education for our kids, we

want training and higher

learning opportunities,

we want jobs we like, we

want support services, solid

infrastructure and a safe

place to relax and enjoy

ourselves.

Christchurch continues

to go from strength to

strength, with strong job

growth, more visitors and

regeneration plans well

under way.

But, there’s plenty more

to be done.

That’s why I’ll be out

over the next 11 days

knocking on doors,

speaking to local groups,

attending events and

connecting with as many

people as possible.

I’m committed to helping

Christchurch get back on

its feet and ensuring it’s a

great place for everyone to

live, work and play.

Ian Gaskin – United

Future

United Future is leading

the debate on drug law

reform.

If I’m elected to represent

Christchurch Central I

will likely be a government

coalition partner and be

able to change the law.

By enabling drug addicts

to get drugs on prescription

we will see a major

reduction in crime.

By allowing class C drugs

to be sold a large new

cash flow will assist the

Government.

1080 poison.

We can farm opossum

and use the 30 million

possum in the wild as

foundation stock.

Worldwide fine fur is a

$80 billion dollar industry.

We can feed farmed

possum with hydroponic

grown freshwater seaweed

and watercress, this will

help clean rivers.

This will bring 10000

jobs to rural South Island

towns.

I’m 62-years-old and

have been living in

Christchurch since before

the earthquakes.

I have been involved with

United Future for over 30

years.

Duncan Webb –

Labour

I choose to live in

Christchurch because it will

become the best place for

my family.

Labour’s plan – $300

million for the people of

Christchurch to choose

how they progress our

rebuild, an inquiry into

EQC, and compensation

for undue delays by insurers

– puts Christchurch and

Cantabrians first.

As a lawyer helping

homeowners battle for justice

I’ve seen what people

are still up against.

Six years after the earthquakes,

our people and our

city are still floundering;

that’s scandalous. The job is

not finished.

Investing in the city also

means investing in health.

Labour will properly fund

health, especially mental

health.

A strong city is one

where people can get the

help – whether that is

surgery, or counselling –

they need, especially our

children.

Let’s get this fixed.

I’m proud to be part of

a Labour team that has

the vision to help make

Christchurch the great

place we know it can be for

the future.

Doug Hill – The

Opportunities Party

At 24, I am the

youngest candidate in

The Opportunities Party

and I am enthusiastic

about encouraging New

Zealanders to look forward

beyond just the next three

years.

Christchurch Central electorate

Peter Richardson -

Green Party

Kia ora koutou.

I am standing as the

Green Party candidate

for Christchurch Central

because I believe in the

Green Party’s principles of

environmental wisdom, social

justice and community

decision-making.

I am a partner at Linwood

Law, living in Mairehau

and married with three

adult children. I have been

involved in the campaign

to protect Canterbury’s waterways

and aquifers, and

have built social housing in

the city.

In Government the

Green Party will fight to

protect our environment,

lift the most disadvantaged

out of poverty, and tackle

the pressing issue of climate

change.

We can do these things

while transforming our

economy from its present

low wage, low value, polluting

model, to a model

that encourages innovation,

productivity, high wages

and clean technology.

Our policies are fully

costed and financially

responsible.

Please give your party

vote to the Greens on September

23. We need a new

Government with a strong

green heart.

Janine Shufflebotham

- Aotearoa Legalise

Cannabis Party

The Aotearoa Legalise

Cannabis Party has been

around for 21 years and

exists to legalise cannabis

for recreational, spiritual,

medical and industrial

purposes.

To empower people to

work together for peace and

true justice and to institute

a proper and just balance

between the power of the

state and the rights and

Waimakairiri electorate

dignity of the individual.

We believe adults have

the right to freedom of

choice unless that choice

harms others or the

planet.

Cannabis is the third

most widely used recreational

drug in New

Zealand after alcohol and

tobacco and the most

widely used illegal drug in

a population of more than

four million. 13.4% of those

between age of 16 and 64

use cannabis this ranks us

the ninth highest cannabis

consumption in the world.

Philip Robinson - New

Zealand First

My name is Philip

Robinson and I am your

Christchurch Central

representative for the New

Zealand First political

party.

I am a patriotic New

Zealander, self employed,

and with many years of life

experience.

New Zealand First has

spent many years in Parliament

putting New Zealand

interests first in ownership

of our assets and sovereignty.

Control of our future

by ownership of our rural

and urban land by New

Zealand residents is a

cornerstone of New Zealand

First policy. As more

foreign-based ownership

takes hold and profits are

repatriated back to foreign

owners our country will

struggle to have enough

local capital for growth.

As we see now New

Zealand is becoming debt

ridden in both government

and private debt levels.

An $8 billion Government

debt 10 years ago has

expanded to a massive debt

of around $65 billion even

though there was extensive

sell-offs in power generation

and Air New Zealand

state assets.

Growing up in north

Belfast last year to be more

issues and concerns.

My commitment to you

is to continue to work hard

to serve all in the Waimakariri

electorate to the best of

my ability.

National’s management

of New Zealand’s growing

economy resulted in direct

investment into Waimakariri,

including the Western

Belfast Bypass and Northern

Corridor motorways.

Ten schools in the

electorate will open new

this year.

National is investing

more into our public services,

GENERAL ELECTION 2017 – MEET THE CANDIDATES

Waimakairiri electorate

Benjamin Price –

Conservative Party

I have lived in the

Waimakariri electorate for

the last 20 years and have

worked in various roles

over that time – predominantly

in the IT sector.

I joined the Conservative

Party after seeing successive

governments completely

(and arrogantly)

ignore the directives of

New Zealanders, including

through citizen initiated

referenda.

The unfortunate result

has been numerous legislative

and social changes

that have not only been

detrimental to the effective

running of the country,

but also to the stability and

coherence of families.

Governments need to

be reminded that they

work for the citizens of the

country, not the other way

around.

•Other candidates standing in Waimakariri are Peter Adcock-White, Democrats

for Social Credit, Stuart Hawkins, ACT, Richard Prosser, New Zealand First, Aroha

Reriti-Crofts, Maori Party and Destiny Wiringi, Independent.

DESIGN: Christchurch Boys’ High School has opened its new hall.

Boys’ High opens $4.6m hall

• By Julia Evans

THE FIRST step in

Christchurch Boys’ High

School’s $32 million

upgrade is finished.

The school has

unveiled its new $4.66

million hall, which has

mezzanine seating for 1350

students.

Headmaster Nic Hill

said the hall was an

important milestone in the

school’s overall rebuild.

“It’s the first thing we’ve

finished – it was really

great for the boys,” Mr Hill

said.

He said the building is

“very modern” but has a

“traditional purpose”.

“We’re not bound by

tradition but we’ve got a

really clear mandate about

what the boys need from

the space.”

During the opening

assembly, Mr Hill spoke

to the students about the

hall representing the next

136 years in the school’s

future and the 136 years of

history behind it.

“The best story I heard

was a student sent his dad

a picture of his freshly

polished shoes. He’d

shined them to go into the

new hall,” he said.

The three-year facelift,

which began construction

last year, includes a new

block of 37 classrooms and

NOR’WEST NEWS

a gym.

Mr Hill said the school

is aiming to create spaces

that won’t date. The next

step is designing the

classroom block.

“We’ve spoken with

architects, as well as asked

students, parents and the

board of trustees what

they want in the design,”

he said.

Only a few of the

school’s original buildings

are set stay, including

the Deans’ farm heritage

buildings and the

Centennial building.

The main heritage

block will be repaired

throughout the course of

construction.

Bridge club finally settles down

• By Julia Evans

AFTER BEING nomadic

for more than six years, the

Bishopdale Bridge Club has

found a home.

With the opening of the

Ōrauwhata: Bishopdale Library

and Community Centre, the

club feels like it has finally

settled down, president Janet

Stokes said.

Prior to the February 22,

2011, earthquake, the 40-yearold

bridge club has “been

wandering”, Mrs Stokes said.

The club left the former

Bishopdale Library on

Farrington Ave and moved

down a few houses into St

Margaret’s Presbyterian Church

just before the quakes.

But it had to move again after

an arson attack last May caused

$2 million in damage to the

church, and the club lost all its

equipment.

Since the fire, the club has

been using space in Riccarton

provided by the Crockfords

Bridge Club.

She said the Riccarton club

had been most accommodating,

but it was good for the older

members, who found it

difficult to travel, to be back in

Bishopdale.

“We’re just thrilled to be back

in the local Bishopdale area,” she

said.

Earlier this year, the club was

approved a grant of $3000 by the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board to replace its

equipment. Mrs Stokes said

the club has been able to

purchase new specialist tables,

table cloths and equipment with

the grant.

The club’s 70 members, mostly

aged over 70-years-old, now

the fashion

dream

•From page 1

“It proved that it was a realistic

dream that I could chase. Really

opened my eyes to the opportunities.”

Unfortunately before Jane

could see any of her favourite

designers’ shows, she had to fly

back the next day for exam week

at school.

“I found it so hard concentrating

after that,” she said.

It was 90-year-old fashion icon

Iris Apfel who inspired the bright,

bold jacket design, which was

made from worn leather and recycled

material.

“Iris helped to inspire me and

push past my boundaries and

incorporate technique, colour and

texture all into one jacket,” she

said.

Jane put her heart and soul into

the jacket, which took more than

80 hours to create.

“I made each and every one

of the tassels covering the sleeve

and hand braided and cut the

front panels of the jacket,” she

said.

Jane said there were many

hours spent handmaking the tassels

in front of the television – but

they were all “worth it.”

Bryndwr church reopens

• By Julia Evans

THE VILLAGE Presbyterian

Church in Bryndwr has

celebrated the opening of its new

building.

The building replaced St

Stephen’s Presbyterian Church,

which was damaged in the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

PERFORMANCE: Burnside

Primary School pupils during

the opening celebrations.

During the ceremony,

Reverend Martin Stewart said

the original church built on

site in 1959 now combines St

Stephen’s and St Giles.

Part of the event was also

acknowledging that it has been

almost 20 years since the community

centre was established at

St Stephen’s.

“It’s been 20 years since the

community centre was formalised

here too,” Rev Stewart said.

He described the new church

as “open”, “light”, “welcoming”,

“comfortable” and not a “traditional”

church. Burnside Primary

School pupils performed

during the short ceremony

before a celebratory meal.

NEW HOME: John Simpson,

Residents-only street rejected

Staff investigated the rat running

after receiving complaints

from residents and found it

happens mostly in the morning

between Christchurch Boys’ and

Christchurch Girls’ High Schools.

Rochdale Precinct Society

spokesman David Nicholls said

while he wasn’t one of the

residents at the meeting, closing

the street to the public had been

something the group was definitely

behind.

He said it “would’ve been helpful”

if the city council listened to

the suggestion.

It comes as the Rochdale St

Precinct Society is taking Bell,

Lamb and Trotter to the High

Court to put a stop to a proposed

“boutique funeral home” on their

street.

But as a result of the on-site

the golden boot award. Keeper

Christian Firth also stood out,

only letting in four goals and

Your fresh food people

BUTTERFLIED LAMB LEG

WITH ROSEMARY AND

GARLIC

Ingredients

1 bunch Flat leaf (Italian) parsley

1 bunch Fresh mint

2 medium Red onions, sliced

1 Butterflied boneless leg of

lamb, approx. 150-200g per

person

3 cloves Garlic, finely chopped

3 Tbsp Chopped rosemary

2 Tbsp Olive oil

1 cup White wine

Directions

ICEBERG LETTUCE,

WALNUT AND BLUE

CHEESE SALAD

Ingredients

1 Iceberg lettuce

1 Walnuts, toasted

1 Blue cheese

1 Walnut oil

1 Cider vinegar

Directions

Remove the outer leaves of a

small iceberg lettuce. Cut the

head into four wedges.

Toast some walnuts.

Crumble some good blue

cheese and, using the white bits

from the outer edges.

Make a creamy dressing by

blending them with walnut oil

and a little cider vinegar (olive

oil is fine if you don’t have

walnut).

Sprinkle the walnuts and the

blue cheese crumbs over the

crisp lettuce wedges and spoon

over the dressing.

Preheat oven to 220 deg C.

In a roasting tray, lay out the

parsley and mint, then add the

sliced onions.

Place the butterflied lamb leg

on top of the onions, fat side up

(there should be a thin layer of

fat on one side).

Score the lamb on the side

with the fat in large diagonal

shapes.

Sprinkle over a large pinch of

sea salt, and crack over plenty of

black pepper.

Rub the garlic into the slits

where you’ve scored it, then

sprinkle over the rosemary and

rub that in too. Drizzle over the

olive oil and rub into the skin.

Place the lamb on a high rack

in the oven and grill for 20-

25min (depending on its size)

until the skin crisps and goes

golden.

Remove from oven and add

wine to the tray.

Return the lamb to the oven,

but move it down from the top

shelf to the centre of the oven.

Roast for a further 20min.

Remove from oven, rest for

5-10min, then slice into thick

strips. Serve on a plate of fresh

parsley and sprinkle with

pomegranate seeds. Use the pan

Candles can cause chaos

• By Mark Thomas –

specialist fire investigator

I SUPPOSE in spring you

can expect some extremes

of weather, so the heavy

rain last weekend, followed

by a frost and then a

nor’wester shouldn’t be a

surprise.

Most people will have

seen the news about the

whole house slipping away

over in Charteris Bay but

less will be aware that

the same day a leak in a

commercial building in

Mandeville St caused a

large enough build-up of

water for portions of the

ceiling to collapse.

In these circumstances

fire crews can only do so

much, using tarpaulins to

either direct water away or

to protect contents.

THen those affected must

start the long process of

repair.

A couple of weeks ago I

mentioned the bad practice

of putting combustible

materials on a stove top.

You just never know when

an element might be on,

just turned off or turned

on while the article is

there.

THis happened again

on Monday evening in

Percival St. This time

a plastic coffee maker

to your style and personality.

was involved. Only

smoke damage resulted.

Unfortunately ‘only

smoke damage’ stinks and

continues to for days, or

even weeks.

Finally one of my pet

hates – candles, used for

ambience. A fire last week

at Rapaki was the result

of this practice where a

bath mat caught on fire.

So did the plastic bath.

Confusion ensued.

Finally the taps were

turned on causing water

to flow through the hole in

the bath to the level below

via a light fitting. All

because of candles. Please

don’t.

We offer a resize and redesign service.

Golden Healthcare Group’s

position at the forefront of

Canterbury’s residential care

services is cemented by a

state-of-the-art facility being

developed at Lady Wigram

Retirement Village providing

hotel-style accommodation

for those residents who enjoy

being part of a vibrant, social

community.

One of the villas built during

the first stage of construction

has been converted to

accommodate social events

such as bowls, happy hours, high teas and

television viewing of sports fixtures.

Once the project is complete, it will

comprise 101 villas, 73 apartments, and

100 care beds. The proposed facilities will

include a rest home, hospital, and dementia

facilities, and permanent amenities such

as a community centre, Bowling Green,

swimming and spa pools, a gym, a theatre,

a library, and a hairdressing salon.

The villas will be offered in a

combination of two and three bedrooms

whereas apartment residents will have a

choice between one and two bedrooms.

The Lady Wigram Retirement Village is

a short stroll from The Landing, the central

retail hub of the Wigram Skies subdivision,

and only a short drive to Hornby Mall, the

Hornby Working Men’s Club and the city.

Rest home care is provided in the Golden

Age Rest Home and Brookhaven Rest

Home, both of which also encompass

retirement villages. Brookhaven also

has a dementia care unit along with the

dedicated Camellia Court, Albarosa, and

Somerfield rest homes. Furthermore,

the Hoon Hay Rest Home is a dedicated

dementia wing, but the Hoon Hay House

on the same site specialises in mental

health.

Within the facilities, there are plenty

of opportunities to create unique

environments for differing requirements

for residents. Nursing care is provided

by registered nurses, and health is well

monitored. An activities co-ordinator

ensures residents will never be bored and

they participate in programmed activities,

games, sing-alongs with performances by

visiting entertainers, library book exchange

and exercise programmes. The group has

four vans to utilise for residents outings.

Golden Healthcare employs 260 at its

facilities which care for about 350 residents.

All staff are highly trained, experienced,

and qualified in their roles.

Respite care is also provided at all

facilities.

Methyl B-12

Research supports

eye health

Emerging research has shown as many as 50 per cent of older

adults and as many as 25 per cent of younger adults are deficient

in vitamin B12.

B12 is essential for energy production,

cell health, regulation of mood and

sleep cycles, nerve health and repair and

prevention of homocysteine - a serious

cardiovascular risk factor that is known

to cause damage and plaque in the blood

vessels. It can also increase the chances

of a stroke. Harvard researchers found

a 34 per cent decrease risk of vision loss

in a study of participants aged 40+ who

supplemented with B12. Another study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

subjects in their 60s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

seems to be due to our body’s inability

to absorb it as we age, as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication and other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption.

The good news is B12 in the form of

Methylcobalamin sublingual tablets that

are dissolved in the mouth and thru

bypassing the digestive tract have been

shown to effectively raise B12 levels in the

body.

Nutritional researchers have discovered a

range of nutrients that are essential for eye

health. Some of the most essential nutrients

that have been shown to protect and even

improve eye function are:

Selenium, is a trace mineral that is low

in N.Z. soils and therefore in many of

our foods. Researchers believe selenium

may help prevent cataracts, macular

degeneration (the leading cause of impaired

vision in older people) and may also

improve dry eyes and general eye health.

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage

of the population are low in. Zinc has been

shown to help protect the eyes from the

damaging effects of light as well as slow

vision loss due to macular degeneration.

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Betacarotene

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper have

potent antioxidant ability and help protect

the eyes from damage

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing

nutrients that have been shown in landmark

research to not only provide potent eye

protection but may even help reverse

some of the signs of age-related macular

degeneration (AMD).

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in potent

antioxidants may help protect the lens and

retina from damage and reduce the risk of

cataracts. They also may help improve blood

supply to the eye, strengthen the small

capillaries of the eye and may help improve

night vision, may alleviate many eye

ailments including eye fatigue that may be

caused by reading, driving and computers.

Eyebright may help normalise eye

pressure and reduce eye allergies.

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential

for correct eye function. It may also have a

detoxifying affect on the eye.

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye fatigue,

bloodshot eyes and maintain good vision.

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection.

It provides many nutrients, is rich in

oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) that

are potent antioxidants that may protect

eyesight.

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic

amount should provide comprehensive eye

protection, may slow and possibly even help

reverse eye damage that could lead to loss

of vision. All these nutrients are available

in an economical one a day easy to swallow

Local workshop provides

full servicing and repairs

Although it is a small suburban workshop, Hoon Hay Automotive

in Hoon Hay Road offers the full range of vehicle servicing and

They also provide transmission flushes,

WoFs for all types of vehicle as well as

trailers are also provided.

But while Grant, Wade and office

RYMAN HEALTHCARE

A brand new kitchen is a key feature of the refurbished townhouses

Major refurbishments enhancing

retirement village townhouses

Already widely recognised as a

beautifully appointed retirement

village in Papanui, near Northlands

mall, the Ngaio Marsh Retirement

Village, which is part of the Ryman

Healthcare group, is currently

undergoing major refurbishments to

its townhouses. A full refurbishment

of the village centre will also be

carried out in 2018.

While the practice has been

for each of the one, two and

three-bedroom townhouses to be

redecorated as residents have moved

out, now they are having more

substantial renovation work done.

When a townhouse is vacated,

a brand-new kitchen with stone

bench-top, dishwasher and waste

disposal unit will be installed,

the bathroom will be upgraded

with tiled flooring and underfloor

heating, and a second toilet added

where possible.

A heat pump and double-glazing

will provide comfort and warmth

for residents, while most of the

townhouses will also have brandnew

carpets and drapes fitted.

The décor of the townhouses is

also being updated, with soft neutral

tones creating an elegant, restful

environment.

Ngaio Marsh has two of these

refurbished townhouses currently

available for retired people who

would like to enjoy the benefits of

independent living in this lovely,

resort-style village.

There are numerous advantages

to retirement living at Ngaio Marsh,

with a key one being the guarantee

of fixed weekly fees*. The weekly fee

new residents pay when they move

into a townhouse remains the same

for the duration of their time in that

townhouse.*

While enjoying the same fully

independent lifestyle they have

always had, townhouse residents

can participate in any of the village

activities on offer and use the leisure

facilities whenever they choose

to. Indoor and outdoor bowls,

petanque, croquet, pool, a gym,

swimming pool and spa pool, a

well-stocked library, a shop, and hair

salon are all available for them.

They can take part in the

exclusive Ryman Triple A Exercise

Programme, and also go out on the

regular shopping trips and outings

in the village van, all of which

means they have the benefit of

independent living, combined with

the companionship of their fellow

residents when they wish.

A sense of security is provided

with 24-hour emergency call alarms

ensuring there is always help on

hand if needed, they can potter in

the garden outside their townhouse,

and family members can visit

whenever they like.

Ngaio Marsh runs a regular

activities programme, which

includes guest speakers, who

come from a range of professional

groups and private and government

organisations to provide interesting

and stimulating talks for the

residents.

There is also a wide variety of

musical entertainment, which is

always popular. Performers include

an NZSO chamber group, young

singers from the Dame Malvina

Major Foundation, which Ryman

sponsors, and individual musicians

singing and playing guitar.

In addition to all these benefits,

there is the Ryman Difference,

which further sets Ngaio Marsh

apart. This includes the fixed weekly

fee*, which stops immediately when

the townhouse is vacated, a 90-day

money-back guarantee* and four

hours of house cleaning at no cost

for residents leaving their home and

moving into Ngaio Marsh.

Next year, the village centre will

come under the refurbishment

spotlight. The project will include

a new movie theatre, extension

and upgrading of the library, the

hair salon being fully refurbished,

upgrading of the dining room and

a new cafe where baristas will make

the coffee.

*Terms and conditions apply

Joan and Ernie Selenger relaxing in their townhouse

“The whole village

has great people”

Ernie and Joan Selinger moved

into their Ngaio Marsh townhouse in

March 2016, and couldn’t be happier

with their home and lifestyle.

Joan, who was a nurse throughout

her working life, both in New

Zealand and in her husband’s home

country of Canada, says when she

and Ernie felt ready to move in to a

retirement village they looked round

a few places, including Ngaio Marsh.

They talked to sales advisor Marie

Kyle-Stevenson, who showed them

a townhouse that was available, and

that was it – an instant decision to

move in.

“It had nice views of the gardens,

and we liked that,” Ernie says.

He says what they especially enjoy

about living at Ngaio Marsh is the

choice of activities.

“You can be as active as you want

to be. And the management are very

helpful – they encourage you to get

involved in things.”

Ernie goes to the gym most

days, spending 40-50 minutes on

the rowing machine, and using the

swimming pool and spa as well.

Not so much a “gym bunny”, Joan

says, she started a 500 Club, with 22

members now enjoying the popular

card game every Wednesday.

She also likes gardening and has

planted a veggie patch outside their

home.

An avid reader, Ernie enjoys

visiting the library, and is very

impressed with the services of

librarian resident Dawn Marshall,

who is in her 90s.

Both Joan and Ernie thoroughly

enjoy their neighbours, too.

“It’s a great neighbourhood,” Ernie

says. “The whole village has great

people – they have a great sense of

humour, and we’re all here for the

same reason.”

And as Joan says, “The most

important thing is people should

move into the retirement village

while they are still able to enjoy the

lifestyle. The resthome and the care

are all there if they need it later.”

Townhouses provide independence and easy maintenance

Refurbished townhouse

facilities right on your doorstep!

HEALTH & AWARENESS

NOR’WEST NEWS

Anxiety and breathing

– are they related?

When good breathing goes bad

Have you experienced any of these

breathing difficulty symptoms?

• Disturbed sleep

• Erratic heartbeats*

• Feeling anxious and uptight

• Upset gut/nausea

• Chest pains*

• Shattered confidence

• Tired all the time

• Achy muscles and joints

• Dizzy spells* or feeling spaced out

• Irritability or hypervigilance

• Frequent yawning and sighing

• Breathing discomfort*

• Pins and needles

• Feelings of ‘air hunger’

*Check with your doctor if you experience

these symptoms.

These questions are asked on

the website www.BradCliff.com.

BradCliff was started by North Island

physiotherapists Dinah Bradley and

Tania Cliffton Smith, who specialise in

hyperventilation and anxiety treatment.

Their website notes one in 10 people

experience some form of breathing pattern

disorder or chronic over breathing at some

time in their lives, resulting in a range

of disturbing or frightening symptoms

puzzling to you and your doctor.

You feel unwell because of overbreathing,

and overbreathing makes you feel unwell.

A vicious cycle is established, which is a

major stress all by itself. This is experienced

currently by many Cantabrians, says Ietje

van Stolk of Physical Sense Gym & Physio.

As she explains, it is normal to breathe fast

and in the upper chest when we are in danger

and fight or flight is needed. We know all

about that here, due to the earthquakes.

Normally, once the danger is gone, our

breathing should restore itself within a

couple of days. We would then be using the

diaphragm for our normal nonstressed

breathing. We have been having a hard

time restoring our breathing pattern

here in Canterbury because every time

our body tried to achieve that, the next

aftershock came rolling in. Even though the

aftershocks have significantly diminished,

some people’s fight or flight mode

breathing has become chronic, or habitual,

Ietje says. And, as she points out, using the

wrong muscles for breathing means these

overworked muscles cause headaches, neck

pain and jaw pain.

With fast upper chest breathing, sighing

and yawning, the resulting disturbance

of our oxygen and carbon dioxide levels

can give us the feeling we are not able to

control our own body. One moment you

are feeling fine, next moment your chest

feels tight, you feel out of breath, your

heart beats erratically and you may even

experience dizziness and/or tingling.

Very scary if you do not understand what

is happening. No wonder this causes

anxiety. Not being the boss over our own

body makes us anxious, anxiety feeds the

faulty breathing pattern, and so it goes on.

The BradCliff physiotherapists have

established a national network of

practitioners that regularly train together

and can help you overcome this problem.

Physical Sense is part of that network.

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

HEALTH & BEAUTY

New hope for patients

suffering from MS,

strokes or spinal injuries

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury, and other physical and mental

health issues, Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of treatment

that brings fast, and often immediate results.

Special offer for SepTeMBer - if

you have suffered a stroke, spinal injury

or have MS, then this article is for you.

A graduate of Beijing Medical College, Dr Lan

established an acupuncture clinic in Christchurch

in 1993. As she continued her research and medical

practice, she discovered a reflexology network on

the human body, an exciting new discovery that

became the foundation of her new treatment –

acupuncture without needles.

Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt instrument

to stimulate the reflexology points on the face

or other parts of the body. When the point is

stimulated by pressure, a message is sent to the

repair centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan

explains, the treatment increases energy, which

boosts the body’s healing system.

The body will heal injuries naturally, she says, but

that is a slow process. In addition, many people will

start to use their injured part, for example a knee

or an ankle, before it is properly healed, therefore

prolonging the injury and even causing chronic

pain.

With her powerful treatment, results are produced

very quickly – even instantly.

She likens it to the differences between the

power of a car – natural healing, of an aeroplane

– other types of natural healing, and of a rocket –

reflexology network.

It brings fast results because it is a very precise

treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses it to treat people

of all ages with many different types of pain in all

parts of the body, including arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury, and there are no side-effects.

Depression and anxiety, often the result of ongoing

low energy, can also be overcome with Dr Lan’s

treatment.

Dr Lan’s treatment can give amazing, instant

improvement for muscle weakness and numbness

caused by nerve damage such as MS, stroke

and spinal injury. Search You Tube for Dr Lan

reflexology to see lots of instant results videos.

Dr Lan has published a book, Dr Lan’s Reflexology

Network, which introduces the treatment and

explains how it works. Her website, www.

drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes treatment

videos, where people who have had the treatment

speak about the fast relief it has brought them.

Dr Lan is offering 10 patients of stroke, 10

patients of MS and 10 patients of spinal injury

half price for their rehabb. Phone 323 4168,
