New World

Bishopdale

wins battle

to display

booze

• By Bridget Rutherford

A SUPERMARKET has won a

three-year battle allowing it to

display alcohol at the end of aisles

and facing other groceries – for

now.

The Alcohol Regulatory and

Licensing Authority has decided

to allow New World Bishopdale to

display its alcohol where it is, until

it renews its off-licence next year.

But medical officer of health

Alistair Humphrey said the

decision will increase shoppers

exposure to alcohol resulting in

more sales.

“More sales of alcohol results

in more harm, both directly and

indirectly,” he said.

Currently, the alcohol is displayed

on an outer aisle. At the

rear of the supermarket, it faces

the dairy chillers, while at the

other end, it is opposite the bakery

products.

Under new rules in the Sale and

Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, supermarkets

and grocery stores must

restrict the display of alcohol to a

single area.

The area should be out of the

way so customers do not have to

walk through it when doing their

general shopping.

EVERY SPORTS club needs an

Alan Jamieson.

The 69-year-old has dedicated

a lifetime to St Albans cricket but

after five decades of administration

work he’s decided to call it

quits.

On page 13, we talk with Jamie

about his time at the club and

why he’s decided to close his innings.

He joined the club from

Papanui High in January 1965

and played 521 games, took 1260

wickets and scored 7008 runs

until March 2006.

That’s not a bad scoreboard in

anyone’s reckoning.

And Jamie says he won’t be

seen much around te club now

either and he’ll be likely watching

matches from a discreet distance.

“I want to give them a chance

to take the reins without me hovering

around,” he says of the new

administrators.

Supermarket wins booze battle

• By Bridget Rutherford

•From page 1

In 2014, New World

Bishopdale’s new owner Bond

Markets, applied to the district

licensing committee for a new

off-licence under the new rules.

During the hearing, concerns

were raised about the alcohol

display being

in the general

shopping area.

But owner Nigel

Bond said due to

space restraints,

there were no

Alistair

Humphrey

other options.

The committee

ruled to restrict

the area, so Bond

Markets appealed the decision

to ARLA, which ruled in its

favour.

Dr Humphrey then appealed

ARLA’s decision to the High

Court. Justice David Gendall

then quashed ARLA’s ruling.

After a Court of Appeal

sitting, ARLA reconsidered

the appeal against the district

licensing committee’s original

2014 decision in July.

In a recent decision, ARLA

said the supermarket’s offlicence

was up for renewal next

year.

SUCCESS: New World Bishopdale has won a battle on how it can display alcohol.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

“The Authority does not

consider it in the interests of

justice that the parties are put

to the trouble and expense of

having to renew the licence only

to have to do so again almost

immediately thereafter.”

But Dr Humphrey said ARLA

declined to take into account

limiting exposure to alcohol,

instead taking a pragmatic

approach.

“By placing alcohol directly

opposite a section of the

supermarket which most

shoppers frequent, exposure

to alcohol, often significantly

discounted, will be increased,”

he said.

He said the High Court

victory meant supermarkets

were now recognising their

obligations when it comes to

alcohol sales and having a

separate alcohol area.

New World Bishopdale’s

alcohol sale area had remained

the same while the issue was in

dispute.

New World South City

was originally fighting a

similar battle, but because it

is redeveloping on a different

location, it withdrew its

appeal.

Foodstuffs South Island

retail general manager Tim

Donaldson said it was “very

pleased” with the decision.

He said Foodstuffs stores

understood the obligations

under the current legislation.

Rangi international club raises

money for cyclone hit Tonga

Rangi Ruru Girls’

School head of

the international

club, Amy

Chen, writes

about raising

funds for a

school in Tonga

devastated by a cyclone

and the importance of

being a global citizen

There are about 60 members in

the international club, including

both international and domestic

students from all over the world.

Some now live here permanently,

while some are international

students with families

overseas.

Something we learn from our

early years here is that we are

global citizens; that we are part

of a much bigger picture.

I like to live my life by treating

others how I want to be treated

myself. And I think a good way

to check yourself now and then is

to make sure you are contributing

to the lives of others and not

making it all about you.

We have fun in the international

club, too, with occasional

movie nights and club outings.

Some girls help others settle in

GLOBAL: International week

at Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

saw students embracing

cultures from all over the

world.

if they are new to New Zealand,

while others have great energy

and drive to keep the club going.

Diversity is so important in life

and at Rangi Ruru we are proud

to celebrate it every day, while

having a bit of fun too.

International week at Rangi

Ruru aimed to enable the girls

at our school to become more

engaged with different cultures

and raise funds for a school

in Tonga affected by Cyclone

Winston.

One of the highlights for me

was the international food day,

where girls brought in food from

their culture to share with the

school and raise funds.

St Andrew’s High School in

Tonga is still struggling after

Cyclone Winston more than a

year ago. It was already under

pressure as it was short of basic

education necessities, such as

stationery and school books.

Being able to keep the

maintenance up at St Andrew’s is

almost considered a luxury. The

school struggles to find enough

money to do what it needs to do.

Many of the families are

struggling and unemployment

is an issue. Because the school is

funded from fees, it means there

isn’t enough money for even the

basics like books and other dayto-day

needs

We are very fortunate here

in New Zealand, and especially

being students at Rangi Ruru.

We raised $1700 for St Andrew’s.

St Andrew’s oldest alum dies

ST ANDREW’S oldest collegian

has passed away.

Naylor Hillary, 102, was part of

the centenary celebrations at the

college in March where he cut

the cake.

But it was way back at the beginning

of 1929 that Mr Hillary

first attended St Andrew’s. He

moved into the boarding school

from his family home in Opawa.

“I have very pleasant memories

of my time there,” he told

Nor’West News in March.

His son, grandsons and now

great-grandson have all received

their education at St Andrew’s.

Rector Christine Leighton

said Mr Hillary was a “special

person”.

“We are privileged to have had

some special moments with him

over these last few years,” Mrs

Leighton said.

Haunting of Sisson Drive

• By Julia Evans

THIS TIME cars are not to

blame for congestion around

Northlands Shopping Centre –

it’s the ghosts.

After receiving complaints

of congestion from users of

the Sisson Drive and Sawyers

Arms Rd intersection, the city

council investigated and found

“ghost calling” is causing traffic

build up, city council manager

planning and delivery transport

Lynette Ellis said.

She said feedback from people

using the intersection indicated

the light phasing was not correct

when detecting cyclists.

“When the signal operation

was analysed ghost calling

was evident in the detection

logs.”

Ms Ellis said finding a cause is

difficult as ghost calls can occur

for a variety of reasons.

“They happen when the

induction loops or the thermal

cameras incorrectly detect a

vehicle, cyclist or pedestrian,”

she said.

At the Sisson Drive

intersection, Ms Ellis said the

lights were incorrectly detecting

cyclists, which may be caused by

electrical interference, software

coding or thermal spikes. It

unnecessarily changes the phase.

COMMUTERS: The lights at the intersection of Sisson Drive and

Sawyers Arms Rd were found to be ghost calling.

She said ghost calling tends

to effect new intersections and

the lights only went in recently

during the Papanui Parallel

cycleway upgrades.

City council staff and

contractors have been working

on the issue and said the

occurrences of ghost calling have

been reduced.

Ms Ellis said she believed the

underlying issues causing the

ghost calling have been found.

“Changes have been made to

the software and some changes

to the detection loop settings

inside the traffic signal controller

and this is currently being

monitored to ensure issues have

been resolved,” Ms Ellis said.

EXERCISE: Commodore Airport Hotel general manager

Michael Patterson and David Cartwright try out the new

Burnside fitness trail.

Fitness trail open in Burnside

• By Julia Evans

BURNSIDE PARK’S $69,000

fitness trail was opened on

Saturday.

Said Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

chairman David Cartwright:

“It’s a fantastic asset for the city

and particularly this part of the

neighbourhood.”

The project was a joint effort

by the community board, which

was approached by the Commodore

Airport Hotel with the

idea.

The hotel then donated

$10,000 and the board gave

$11,500, plus a similar contribution

came from three rotary

clubs – Bishopdale-Burnside,

Avonhead and Riccarton.

Mr Cartwright said it was a

great example of someone coming

to the community board

with an idea, and the board taking

it on and getting involved.

The four stations include a situp

bench, push-up bars, stairs, a

vertical ladder, chin-up bar, gym

rings, a shoulder wheel, cross

trainer, pull down exerciser,

recumbent cycle, skier, leg press,

parallel bars, monkey bars and a

balance beam.

“The exercise equipment is

quite general. Kids, adults and

those with disabilities can use

the gear,” he said.

It was all installed in phases,

starting two years ago but completed

this month.

The most expensive equipment

was part of the forth station.

Pump house designs out

• By Julia Evans

FENDALTON residents

will have their water back to

pre-quake volumes with the

installation of a new $2.5 million

pump house.

A new pump house, with a 500

cu m tank, is now in the planning

stage for Jeffreys Reserve

on Jeffreys Rd. An architect

has drawn up the design which

will go out for consultation this

month.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board chairman

David Cartwright said he

asked city council staff about

the costs around further design

options.

“Staff came back and said it

could be as much as $20,000.

That’s $20,000 of ratepayers’

money that could be spent on

fixing potholes.”

He said the board did not want

to “over consult” on something

that was an essential service.

“It is a big beast and its necessary,”

Mr Cartwright said.

Fendalton city councillor

Jamie Gough said from his

perspective, it was a great pump

house.

“Not many pump houses are

designed by architects,” he said.

Residents will get a chance to

give feedback on the design during

a community engagement

PLANS: The pump house will

meeting this month, city council

“At the end of the day, it’ll

past telephone or power boxes

and generally don’t notice,” Mr

Cartwright said.

Four bores have already been

dug by the city council 100m

into the ground to get to the

water reservoir below.

“The earthquake-damaged

water tank, which is not in use

now, needs to be replaced . . .

Bug Invasion where players

students.

Ms Airy said CerebralFix has

Fire rages, homes at risk

Pokemon on the cycleways

POKEMON GO took the world

by storm and has now provided

the inspiration for a campaign

to get people using the city’s

cycleways.

A group of Selwyn House

pupils looked at the app which

involved collecting imaginary

monsters from locations around

the world as a way to increase

usage of the paths.

As part of a class project on

community problem-solving,

Alice Hunter, Reed McHugh,

Cleo McLeod and Sophie

Hogson, used their school’s laser

cutter and 3-D printer to create

bicycle shaped cut-outs that

would be hidden in places along

the cycleways.

People would have to find and

collect photos of the cut-outs,

like Pokemon Go characters,

then post them on social media

or a website.

The pupils said they hope

to decorate the cut-outs to

encourage people to get out

on the cycleways to hunt them

down.

“This could get families and

kids off their couches and onto

the cycleways,’’ Alice, 11, told

the city council’s infrastructure,

transport and environment

committee.

Reed, 11, said they hoped to

involve other schools in the

project by inviting them to

decorate the cut-outs.

“Safety will be a major factor

in choosing where these bikes are

placed because we don’t want to

cause crashes or traffic jams,’’ she

said.

“The project could tie in with

social media to get more people

involved. Once people find a bike

they can take a picture next to it

and post it on social media using

the hashtag,’’ she said.

“A website could be created

that pulls all the hashtag posts

from Instagram, Twitter and

Facebook. It could also have a

downloadable and printable map

of the bikes’ locations.”

The girls’ ideas were well

received by the committee.

“The committee is very

impressed and excited by

this idea and we will use the

appropriate channels to pick this

up,’’ committee chairwoman and

city councillor Pauline Cotter

said.

Bid to make corner safe

• By Julia Evans

AFTER 19 crashes over a sixyear

period, Chaneys Corner is

about to be upgraded.

City council staff said safety

improvements at the corner of

Main North, Marshland and

Spencerville Rds are critical.

“As part of this work, we will

create a left hand turning slip

lane for motorists travelling

north on Marshland Rd who

want to turn left to access the

Northern Motorway,” staff said.

There has been uncertainty

from vehicles coming off Main

North Rd, staff said.

So the left hand slip will allow

“clear separation” from motorists

travelling straight ahead

- avoiding oncoming traffic

altogether.

“The Main North Rd give

way will be changed to a stop

sign to make it consistent with

the Spencerville Rd approach

and reduce confusion regarding

priorities.”

There will also be updated

warning signs that say “slow

Rd as an early advisory to motorists.

The city council investigated

the possibility of putting traffic

lights or a roundabout at the

intersection.

However, staff said traffic is

“anticipated to reduce drastically”

with the completion of

the Northern Arterial.

These options would also

cause significant delays to

vehicles on Marshland Rd,

and staff said the pattern of accidents

would change and could

increase in severity.

“A roundabout is not suitable

for this location due to the

unbalanced number of vehicles

at the four approaches to this

intersection.”

The city council has opened

the proposal up for feedback

from the public until October

27, which can be given on its

website.

All feedback will be considered

before a staff recommendation

goes to the Papanui-Innes

Community Board in February.

If approved, the project will

begin in the middle of next year.

St Andrew’s skipper selected

at hooker in NZ Schools team

SPORTS

BACK TO FORWARD: Former St Andrew’s College player

Shilo Klein moved from second-five to hooker and has

been selected in the New Zealand Schools side.

• By Andrew King

SPEED AND power are

two attributes needed in the

modern-day hooker.

But 18-year-old Shilo Klein

has something else too: He’s a

natural midfielder.

The St Andrew’s College

student, who moved from

second-five to hooker last year,

was one of 25 named in the

New Zealand Schools side to

play three games against two

Australian and a Fijian team

in Sydney.

He didn’t play in the 54-7

demolition of the Fijian

Schools side on Thursday.

Christ’s College first XV

captain and centre Isaiah

Punivai was also named in the

New Zealand Schools side.

Klein was also included

in the Crusaders Academy

for next year and is looking

forward to making a career

out of rugby.

He weighs in at 105kg and

is 180cm. He’s well-suited to

the forward pack, first XV cocoach

Mike Johnston said.

“The skills he learnt at

second-five has helped out as

a hooker. He has developed

some really good passing skills

and lines to run out in those

wider channels,” he said.

NOR’WEST NEWS

“We thought he would be a

good fit in that position and

that has been proved correct

with his selection in the New

Zealand Schools side.”

Klein, who was born in

Sacramento, California, said it

was a no-brainer to move into

the forward pack.

“I had a lot of feedback that

this position would suit my

style of play. I played like a

forward in the backline, I ran

straight and looked for good

physical go-forward,” he said.

It took him a few attempts to

feel comfortable in the middle

of a scrum, but now he loves it.

“In my first scrum, I felt

claustrophobic, but I got used

to it,” he said.

Klein captained St Andrew’s

this year, leading them to fifth

in the UC Championship and

third in the co-ed cup in the

New Zealand Barbarians first

XV championship.

He moved to Christchurch

when he was three with his

parents, Howard and Wendy.

“I play the sport in one way

or another all year round,

as I play touch and sevens

also. I really want to play

professionally some day,” he

said.

Jamieson pulls up stumps at St Albans

• By Andrew King

ST ALBANS Cricket Club’s

season will begin this weekend.

After 52 years as a club member

– 44 of those as president and

chairman – Alan Jamieson, 69,

has pulled has pulled stumps on

his administration career to allow

a new crop of management to

take it into the future.

He may not be at the ground

for the opening game – but you

might see him watching the action

from afar.

After 52 years, 44 as president

and chairman, the Avonhead

man has pulled stumps on his

administration career to allow a

new crop of management to take

it into the future.

“I want to give them a chance

SPORTS

to take the reins without me

hovering around,” he said.

On August 1, Graham Curgenven

took over as president and

Pierre Flavell as chairman.

Jamieson oversaw the merger

between the St Albans Women’s

Cricket Club and men’s club in

1977, one of the first clubs to do

so in the city, saw the coming and

going of a number of professional

players at the club and watched

Chris Harris, Chris Martin and

Mark Priest go on to play for New

Zealand. He said he can’t take

credit for Martin’s batting style,

which is famous around cricket

grounds both here and abroad.

“He was a number 11 the day

he joined the club from Christchurch

Boys’,” he laughed.

Jamieson joined the club from

Papanui High in January 1965

and played 521 games, took 1260

wickets and scored 7008 runs

until March 2006.

Jamieson played “on the front

foot” both on and off the pitch

resulting in a few run-ins with

cricket bosses.

“Lee Germon and I have

had some fierce conversations

over the years, I didn’t win too

many of those,” he said with a

chuckle. •Turn to page 14

•From page 13

He said the club had become a bit

“nomadic” after the 2014 redevelopment

of Hagley Oval, but the overall end result

was a fantastic international cricket

ground.

Jamieson said the lure of the game will

be hard to stay away from, but as he did

after finishing his playing days, he will

watch from a distance.

“I used to watch from afar after I finished

playing, behind trees and in cars,

because, you know how it is. If you are

hanging around, soon you are called up to

fill in then your back playing,” he said.

The main thing he will miss is the communication

with all the players, officials,

coaches and management of the club, he

said.

“I have noticed since I have been away

the communication has stopped. It remains

to be seen if the winter month quietness

will reflect the summer months,”

he said. One of the hardest and best moments

in his long tenure share a common

date: January 30, 2009.

The clubrooms, in Hagley Oval, suffered

an arson attack at about 7am, burning it

to the ground.

Jamieson said it was the worst moment

of his time at the club standing on the

field watching his beloved clubrooms billow

smoke and collapse in the inferno.

“But rebuilding it brought the club

together. The club rallied and it made it

stronger,” he said.

Now retired, Jamieson said he has time

to do something else rather than cricket.

Tahu Kaa-Goodwillie has

loves since age four and the

hard work has paid off with

his inclusion in the under-18

Maori side.

The 17-year-old, whose

iwi is both Ngati Porou and

performer in this year’s UC

with a number of line breaks

and a huge defensive workload

cementing his spot in the

him a call-up for higher

where he was playing

sevens for Chisnallwood

Intermediate.

He was offered a full

scholarship to St Kentigern

College, Auckland, which

prompted him to talk with

then coach and PE teacher

Jared Mitchell about what he

should do.

“I had no idea what to tell

him so I got High School Old

Boys coach Aaron Mauger to

have a chat with him about the

pros and cons of going north

or staying here,” Mitchell said.

Kaa-Goodwillie was planning

on heading to CBHS,

but the offer from Auckland

gave him another option to

consider.

A meeting with CBHS

headmaster Nic Hill, school

sports co-ordinator Steven

Dodds and Mauger outlined

that he could have the best of

both worlds, great education

and a chance to play in a wellrespected

rugby team.

“Aaron told him you don’t

need to be in Auckland to

be an All Black. But we said

it would not just be rugby,

school work came first,” Mr

Hill said. Kaa-Goodwillie said

the decision to stay in Canterbury

was so he could be close

to family, but the Auckland

offer was hard to turn down.

earns Maori selection

“But it has worked out pretty

good for me,” he said.

He stayed with his uncle

Stewart Kaa for two years on

Rata St, Fendalton, less than 1km

from CBHS, so he was in the

zone to attend the high school

before moving back home with

his mother Tania Kaa and father

Carlin Goodwillie in Parklands.

His form this year earned him

selection in the Crusaders Junior

Knights development camp

held at St Andrew’s College in

July before being selected in the

Junior Knights who lost 25-10 in

a curtainraiser match against the

under-18 Hurricanes side.

He has been involved in Metro

representative rugby since age 13.

He trialled and missed out

on the New Zealand Schools

team this year but said making

the Maori team is a fantastic

stepping stone for him as it has

always been his dream to play

rugby professionally.

“With the Maori team, we get

to play more games compared to

the New Zealand Schools side.

So that has been a bit of blessing

in disguise,” he said.

Kaa-Goodwillie played for

the Linwood Rugby Club until

age 11, before playing for the

Christchurch Football Club until

high school. He now plays for

CBHS’s first XV.

“The move to Christchurch

Football Club was to develop me

as a player. I will always have a

soft spot for Linwood, though,

and I am considering a return

to play there one day,” Kaa-

Goodwillie said.

The Christchurch club was

formed in 1863 and is the oldest

club in the country, producing

32 All Blacks including Richie

McCaw.

CBHS first XV coach Danny

Porte said Kaa-Goodwillie is an

impressive ball-runner.

“He is a very physical when

carrying the ball into contact

and is a direct physical threat to

the defensive line,” he said.

“He has great footwork and

great leg drive and is very

professional about the way he

goes about things on and off the

field.”

He was in the gym last week

when the call came through

that he had been included in the

Maori side.

“It hasn’t really soaked in yet,

but for me, it was a satisfying end

to the season and a great reward

for all hard work that I had put

in over the year,” he said.

HOME & HEATING

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

Choosing the right heat

pump for your home

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

Miracle weight loss fruit

An extract of a small pumpkin-like fruit

called Garcinia Cambogia from India &

Asia has shown itself to greatly assist weight

management & overall health. In fact many

have found it to increase fat loss by 2 to 3

times greater than normal. T.V. Dr. Oz has

said it is the most effective & fastest working

natural supplement to support weight loss.

Even without exercise & diet changes

many have found it beneficial, although even

better & quicker results are often obtained

with extra exercise & an improved diet.

The extract of this amazing fruit is called

Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) or CitriMax.

Research has shown HCA to help suppress

the appetite, reduce cravings, feel fuller for

longer, increase energy levels, help prevent

fat from being made & stored in the body,

increase lean muscle mass, increase

serotonin levels in the brain that

help control mood & sleep

(great for emotional eaters),

improve cholesterol levels

that may help reduce

the chances of strokes

& cardiovascular

disease, help prevent

sugar spikes as well

as other health

benefits.

It is considered

a very safe

supplement

(although check first

if you are on medication)

as it has been used for centuries

as a flavouring agent & digestive aid.

Need more vitality?

The nutrient balance of the body is critical

for optimum aging. Research has shown

the body performs much better if all the

required nutrients are available in sufficient

quantities. The problem is it is very hard

to obtain enough if any of some of these

nutrients from a normal diet. Boron is one

of the many nutrients with amazing benefits

that is lacking in our diet. A 2014 double

blind placebo controlled human clinical

study of a patented form of the mineral

NOR’WEST NEWS

boron delivered significant reduction in

pain, stiffness and joint comfort with 80%

stopping or reducing medication and

87.5% saying they had less or no stiffness

in just four weeks. Boron also helps balance

hormones in both men and woman and can

increase fertility. It helps promote healthy

muscle mass, fights diabetes, strengthens

the bones and increases concentration and

brain function.

Pure Vitality are based on the West Coast

life changing supplements that provide

the immune, brain, adrenals, pancreas and

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.’’

“I organise incredible trips at incredible

prices. Look around, you can’t find better

for all we include”.

A family affair

at local gym

The Smith and Mackintosh families

When Ignite Fitness was set up at the

Papanui Club in early 2016, the challenge

was to create an exercise atmosphere that

appealed to a diverse market. One of the

areas identified was the involvement of

family members and groups, manager of

the fitness centre Eddie Kerrigan says.

“We must have done something right

as we now have numbers of families who

have joined up. The environment at Ignite

Fitness is a safe, non-threatening one in

which parents can be confident that all

their family members will be looked after

in a professional and caring manner.”

There are three families of four, four

family groups of three, and around 25

family groups of two currently signed up,

Eddie says.

Two of those families are the Smith

family and the Mackintosh family, and

Eddie spoke to them about why they

joined Ignite Fitness, and what they got

out of it. There were a variety of reasons

for joining. These included improving

fitness, losing weight, keeping joints and

limbs moving, stalling the effects of ageing

and family bonding. The handy location

of the gym was also an important factor,

they said.

Both families said they went to the gym

two to four times a week, depending on

their school and work schedules. Asked

what activities they enjoyed most, in

order of popularity they said these were

resistance training, cardio exercise and

circuit classes, though they liked taking

part in all of the activities and exercises.

Depending on the activity, they

sometimes competed with one another to

see who could achieve the most, and both

sets of parents tried to be an inspiration

for their families.

Both families said they had gained a

number of health benefits since starting

at Ignite Fitness. Strength and fitness

were two key beneflts, but there was also

pain management and all-over physical

stability. In addition to the physical

benefits, they enjoyed socialising with

other gym members, and their self-esteem

improved.

“We are delighted that families like the

Smiths and the Mackintoshes get so much

enjoyment from coming to our gym, and

new families and groups are always more

than welcome to join,” Eddie says.

Ignite Fitness is open 5.30am-9.30pm

Monday to Friday and 5.30am-6.30pm

weekends and public holidays. To find

Fitness phone 359-9586, ext. 706 or
