Loss of

parking

will hit

business

• By Julia Evans

PAPANUI SMALL businesses

fear they will struggle if on-street

parking in Main North Rd is taken

away for a bus lane.

The city council has proposed

22 parks be removed between

Harewood Rd and Grassmere St

including all parking outside The

China Kitchen and Super Liquor.

China Kitchen owner Stella Li

said she expects profits would drop

by 50 per cent.

“It will destroy our small business…it’s

very shocking, the city

council should be helping small

businesses,” she said.

On the north side of the road 16

spaces would be lost and heading

towards the city, six.

“Some car parks will need to be

removed in order to accommodate

the bus lanes and bus stops but

there is available parking behind

the businesses on Main North Rd

for customers to use,’’ city council

manager planning, transport and

delivery Lynette Ellis said.

She said the city council would

improve signage directing customers

to off-street parking.

There are three car parks behind

the China Kitchen, which are not

for public use.

EDITOR’S

DESK News.................................3, 6-7

YOU HAVE to sympathise with

Papanui businesses as they face

the prospect of losing car parks

outside their stores (see page 1).

The city council is proposing

to get rid of 22 car parks between

Harewood Rd and Grassmere St.

Proposing generally means that’s

what will happen.

And no surprises the affected

businesses aren’t happy.

The car parks will be taken away

to make way for bus lanes, and

that is the dilemma.

Christchurch is an ever expanding

city and with that comes more

traffic. We do need to be encouraging

public transport, cycling and

other ways getting from A to B.

There is no simple answer.

Pothole police pound pavement

• By Julia Evans

THE NORTH-WEST has its

own pothole patroller.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member John Stringer has

been conducting a personal hunt

for any potholes as he traverses

the ward.

“Following

a historically

high September

rainfall and

aggravated by a

lot of heavy transport

in north-west

John

Stringer

Christchurch,

there has been a

proliferation of

deep potholes

emerging in Papanui, some

several inches deep at busy intersections,”

he said.

Mr Stringer said they are

dangerous for cyclists and he’s

spotted several near the new

Papanui Parallel cycleway.

“Many of the worst potholes

are occurring next to the newly

completed cycleways where

traffic has been narrowed

and the extra tyre stress has

aggravated the road surfaces,”

he said.

Mr Stringer also said he

noticed surface flooding caused

by shingle coming out of several

of the potholes.

He also found potholes outside

the entrance to Northlands

Mr Stringer said the best way

to report potholes was to use the

city council’s Snap Send Solve

app or phone 941 8999.

“The city council can’t be

everywhere so the role of local

community board members and

residents is to be the eyes and

ears and report dangerous issues

such as potholes,” he said.

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

HEAD-ON COLLISION RISK

To reduce the risk of a head-on

crash, no-stopping restrictions

will be put in place on Waimairi

Rd, Burnside. When vehicles park

on the south side of the road, it

forces passing vehicles to cross

the centre line, which could cause

a head-on crash. The Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board approved the no-stopping

restrictions outside 303 and 305

Waimairi Rd at its meeting last

week.

DANGEROUS TREE GONE

A dangerous tree in St Albans has

now become firewood. The semimature

ash tree was outside 90

Bishop St. It was removed by the

city council due to “concerns for

public safety”. A city council staff

report said investigations into the

health and structural integrity of

the tree concluded it needed to

be removed. It was bent over and

protruded onto the street.

CYCLEWAY HOLD UP

Work on the Northern Line

cycleway between Harewood

Rd and Restell St has been

temporarily stopped. The work

on Restell St has been completed

but the city council has to wait for

traffic signals and a pedestrian

crossing to be approved by

KiwiRail before it can continue

work on Harewood Rd.

Principal’s uplifting spring message

St Margaret’s

College

executive

principal Gillian

Simpson writes

about the

importance of

young people

looking after their mental

health in the modern world

SPRING BRINGS light and

hope with each day as we watch

bulbs emerge from winter sleep.

Blossom and leaf buds promise

new life. Children and lambs

frolic in the warming sunshine

and we look to spring clean

our homes. Perhaps we need

to spring clean our minds and

bodies too.

Everywhere we are bombarded

with messages about well-being

and mental health as major

issues for the western world.

Post-earthquake Christchurch

has its own issues around posttraumatic

stress and we are still

seeing evidence of this in our St

Margaret’s College community.

We appear to be in search of

a hedonistic “happiness”, which

is often material, superficial and

fleeting. There is much current

research that indicates that true

“happiness”, which is deep and

sustained and leads to lifelong

EMPOWER: Young people are encouraged to look after

their mental health and well-being.

well-being, can be attained only

through living a life with gratitude

and compassion for others.

We worry for the well-being

of our young women in a world

where they look for instant

gratification, constant reassurance

and affirmation in their

search for perfection.

Social media has contributed

to the rising anxiety and feelings

of inadequacy for many vulnerable

teenagers. Social media has

provided another vehicle for

unkind and negative behaviours

to damage our young women’s

A message for young people –

just try these simple things:

Take time to breathe and feel

your life giving breath.

Take time to grieve and feel the

pain – that’s OK.

Take time to heal and regain

your strength.

Take time to listen to your

heart and to others.

Take time to think and reflect

and learn.

Take time to be brave and

stand for what you believe.

Take time to give and to serve

others as it is in giving that we

receive.

Take time to love as it is in

loving that we are loved.

Take time to be thankful for

true gratitude brings peace and

Take time to find the positive

Take time to just “be” the

You make this world a better

place for your being in it.

Love yourself unconditionally.

Michael Oliver – Going to

Readers also respond to

the article regarding plans

for a third lane across the

Mike Allfrey – If the third lane

will take pressure off the old Main

cyclists to use it, rather than put

them nearer to the motorway?

Last time I looked, it’s illegal to

cycle on the motorway so why put

cyclists near it?

Trevor Taylor – Considering

95 per cent of vehicles only have

the driver in them, this lane will

make bugger all difference then.

Hayden Allan – Is the traffic

really backed up from the end of

the motorway to the Waimakariri

Bridge? I think we need to look at

that first. I just don’t feel putting

an extra lane in will do much but

move the bottle neck down to

where it will have to merge.

Yvonne Pender – Listen to

Amanda White – Great idea.

and flying nuns. The camera

a mannequin in the seat beside

them just to get the job done.

Blair Woodhouse – Five

nonetheless.

Steven Branca – I hope they

design the beams so pigeons can’t

roost on them.

Helen Young – Why three

lanes? Wouldn’t it be better to put

a new double lane bridge over

the river long-term than a third

lanes.

The competition required

The obstacles included tunnels,

Jess said it was the best

properly learnt to train dogs

when she was about eight.

She has been based Selwyn

years and has trained eight

dogs so far.

She said the training takes a

lot of patience and it all comes

down to working out what

motivates a dog.

Jess said her two dogs’

opposites.

Swag is sweet, cuddly and

more trustworthy on the obstacle

course where as Rapid is

fast, crazy and more unpredictable.

Council

initiates uni

parking review

• By Julia Evans

PARKING restrictions around

Canterbury University are set to

tighten.

On-street parking through Fendalton

and Ilam is being audited

by the city council.

The 1996 city council introduced

a comprehensive parking

plan named The University

Parking Plan, but staff said the

demand for parks has increased

beyond that.

In response the city council has

initiated a review and is seeking

community feedback.

The first leg of the audit would

see tighter restrictions on the Fendalton

and Ilam streets, Hamilton

Ave, Lothian St, Ilam Rd, Tuirau

Pl, Swanleigh Pl, Ryeland Ave and

Braithwaite St.

These areas are are currently

P120 between 9am and 5pm

from March to November – the

city council is proposing this be

changed to P120 between 9am

and 5pm year round.

Residents have expressed

concerns about the number of

vehicles parking on their streets.

The public can give feedback

on the proposal through the city

council’s website.

Police patrols increase near school

• By Julia Evans

AN INCREASED police

presence is putting the brakes

on speeding motorists near St

Albans School.

Acting Sergeant James

McClurg said police had added

the area to their patrol round.

He said recent changes to

lengthen the

red light phase

at Cranford

and Berwick

Sts, as well as

Westminster and

Cranford Sts,

Ali Jones

had also “made a

difference” to the

safety of children.

The patrols are part of

solutions to ongoing problems of

pupils safety on the roads.

They were set out during

a meeting between St Albans

School, the city council and

police in a bid to stop the

dangerous driving, speed and

traffic issues putting the safety

of pupils in jeopardy, Papanui-

Innes Community Board

chairwoman Ali Jones said.

The “quick wins” included the

increased police presence, which

deputy principal Claire Howison

said is making a difference.

Other plans included more

monitoring of the 3min dropoff

spot on Westminster St,

installation of more 3min dropoff

zones and yellow lines on

Sheppard Pl.

Ms Howison said the

school didn’t quite have the

“man-power” to increase the

monitoring yet, although

the police presence had been

“wonderful”.

However, Ms Jones said it was

not only about “band-aid” fixes

– the meeting was also about

looking at long-term solutions.

“We don’t want to be fire

fighting on a daily basis, we

want to take a more holistic

approach and deal with the

future as well,” she said.

City council traffic engineer

Penny Grey is planning an audit

for the area’s roads.

It will start shortly to help

deal with the predicted increase

in traffic from the Northern

Arterial.

Loss of parking will hit business

•From page 1

“Our staff don’t finish until

10.30 or 11pm. We don’t want

them to have to walk, it’s quite

dangerous,” she said.

Super Liquor owner Carolyn

Moffat said while her business

has some spaces out back, there

are not enough.

“It’s a glib statement saying

they’ll put in more signage,” Ms

Moffat said. She said the city

council hasn’t understood “strip

shopping.”

“People pull in if they can get a

park, if not they keep going,” Ms

Moffat said.

Mrs Li said people driving

home would phone in for takeaway

and quickly pull into a park

on the street, grab their food and

a bottle of wine before carrying

on.

“They won’t stop if there are

no parks because it’s easy to keep

going for another block and go

to a different restaurant,” she

said.

But Ms Moffat isn’t entirely

unhappy with the proposal, she

is glad to see something being

done about the traffic.

“I just think they need to

look at it again. The bus lane

shouldn’t be full time. There’s

And she said some parks

should remain. Though it doesn’t

have to be all of them.

The city council has proposed

other measures to prioritise

buses and ease congestion on

Main North Rd.

It plans to extend the operating

hours of the part-time bus

lane between Mary and Homer

Sts, install a left turn lane from

Langdons Rd onto Main North

Rd and replace a give-way sign

at Northlands Shopping Centre

with traffic lights.

Bid to ease

congestion

outside school

gets approval

• By Julia Evans

A BID to ease congestion on a

narrow street outside Selwyn

House School has been approved.

The city council is set to put

3min parking restrictions in place

on Merivale Lane after receiving

approval from the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board.

The move comes after the

school approached city council

staff with a request for an

on-site visit to look at solutions

for the pick-up and drop-off

congestion.

“The reason this request has

been initiated is that the school

requires a safe area for parents

and caregivers to park and pickup

and drop-off children,” a city

council staff report said.

The 3min parking area outside

the school is currently P120

between 8am and 4pm on school

days. It will change to P120

between 9am and 3pm on school

days and P3 from 8am to 9am and

3pm to 4pm.

The project will cost $1200 and

be completed four weeks after the

city council selects a contractor.

Success with gadgets and gizmos

THREE BURNSIDE High School

students have made the finals of a

bird populations.

He said the idea came when

he realised the Department of

currently use groups of people

to do bird counts and monitor

populations.

“Given the quick-moving

nature of birds, the fact many are

camouflaged and the likelihood

of human error, this system can

be quite imprecise. My project is

aimed at improving the process

and making it more reliable,”

Felix said.

“all-in-one” device that tells you

information on the weather,

buses, prices for holidays, the

status of different appliances and

“There is a lot of stuff on the

internet that enables you to access

this information, but it takes time

to access. So I decided to design

a device that makes these tasks

more convenient to access, and

means things can get done faster.”

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Health food business

built on family ties

Established in 1988, the Christchurchbased

New Zealand Health Food

Company is a real family affair.

For founder Rob Haines, the aim was to

supply indigenous New Zealand natural

products to national and international

manufacturers. The success of these

products soon led to the development of

the company’s own retail brands, and right

from the start Rob’s mother Joan played

an active role in the business, as a mentor

and assisting with operations, right up till

when she retired at the age of 82.

Rob’s daughter Ellie is part of the team

as the web and social media administrator

for the company, while his son Sam is

the sales manager. Selina, Rob’s other

daughter, has also joined the team out in

production, alongside her husband Doug,

who is the operations manager. All are

learning all the aspects of the company

and continuing what they hope is a long

family tradition.

The strong family bonds and shared

values are reflected in the workplace, with

their skilled staff enjoying a happy, safe

working environment that is flexible and

practical, with opportunities provided for

training and development.

Sustainability and environmental

responsibility are also key factors for the

company, and this is reflected in how they

source sustainable materials and seek out

ethical suppliers, working with the local

community where possible.

Their products are manufactured

energy-efficiently with waste

minimisation, and they source recyclable

packaging for their own brands and

encourage their suppliers to do the same.

With the increasing interest and

awareness by consumers in living

environmentally conscious and healthy

lives, The New Zealand Health Food

Company is growing and adapting

the range of products to meet these

demands. By providing quality products

at affordable price, their aim is to make

health and wellness available to everyone.

You can see the full range of products

on their website, www.nzhealthfood.

com, and order online, or you can

call into the spacious retail store,

at 215 Woolridge Road, where the

knowledgeable staff will advise on

the right products for your needs.

They also offer an excellent customer

loyalty programme. Opening hours

going wrong and began extensive research.

What they found was although their clients

were generally eating good food they were

not obtaining all the nutrients required for

good health from this food. Further research

showed one of the main problems was the

digestive system, “it’s not what you eat but

what you absorb.” Another well-known

problem is the soils the crops are grown in

have been depleted of many trace elements

and other nutrients that are known to be

essential for good health and therefore the

crops and food are also depleted. If we do

not obtain all the nutrients we require the

body will compensate to some degree but

a lack of too many nutrients will eventually

lead to health issues.

Based on this they

developed VITAL

GREENS, a nutrient

dense powdered

formula that

provides superior

absorption as well

as comprehensive

nutrition. They

decided on a

powdered formula

that could be made

as a great tasting drink because liquid

nutrition is the easiest way for the body

to absorb nutrients especially if digestive

issues are present. The formula provides

76 vital ingredients that work together in

synergy optimising each other’s absorption

and benefits. Vital Greens contains a

carefully balanced blend of nutritionally

rich greens, vegetables, fruits, minerals,

vitamins, essential fatty acids, plant and

herbal extracts, superfoods, powerful

antioxidants, probiotics, essential amino

acids, digestive enzymes, fibre plus a

uniquely alkalising pea protein. It provides

superior nutrition to a multivitamin and

anyone will benefit from it. It is designed to

provide all the nutrients the body requires

for good health. It is also ideal for those

in poor health, those recovering from

injury or sickness, children, athletes, poor

eaters and the elderly. It is also suitable

for people with dietary restrictions and is

gluten, wheat and dairy free. Vital Greens

will help remove toxic waste from the body

while supporting all organs. You’ll often

notice more energy and endurance, better

sleep, a more positive mood, skin problems

improving, less sickness, improved eyesight

and overall better more optimum health.

Further information and how to obtain

the maximum benefits from Vital Greens

as well as tastings is available from the

Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s

Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757.

The gut has a lot to do with how we feel & how our brain

of our biggest deficiencies. They have a dramatic effect on

brain function. Parents often notice children are less moody,

Anxious Kids -

What can you do?

We are all aware that anxiety in our

children has risen considerably over the

last 7 years, the forces that rattled our city

have continued to rattle its citizens and this

has impacted on how our children exist

and respond in their day to day lives.

Of course this is not the only contributor

and it must be remembered that any

mental health problem is not a clear cut

issue. However parents, teachers, doctors

and other people closely working with our

children and young adults have noticed a

change in behaviour.

They are seeing things such as increased

irritability, aggression, separation anxiety,

sleep disturbances and moodiness. The

normal response of anxiety to a future

challenging event has become an out of

proportion reaction to normal daily events

and this is where the problem lies.

So what natural options are there to help

support children’s mental health?

Probiotics - Promote healthy balance of

chemicals in our brain

The connection between the brain and

the gut is key to understanding and

maintaining good mental health. You

need a well balanced microbiome (gut

flora), with an abundance of good bacteria

to ensure the creation and regulation of

neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters

are chemicals that send messages to and

around our brain. Serotonin is one of

these neurotransmitters - low levels are

associated with anxiety and other problems

such as depression. It is important to note

ARE YOU READY

TO DOWNSIZE?

Paying rates for a house that’s

too big? Paying maintenance and

heating costs for space you don’t use?

A move to one of our

architecturally designed villas

at McKenzie Lifestyle Village in

Geraldine will cut those costs.

Three villas are available for

occupation now, priced from

$355,000.

Talk to David Connolly today

on 0800 84 55 24.

that the majority of serotonin is actually

made in our gut!

Fish oils - Reduce cellular inflammation

Fish oils are a source of Omega 3 fatty acids,

unless we eat at least 3 - 4 meals of oily fish

per week we generally aren't getting enough

of this essential fatty acid (EFA). The

result is an imbalance between this antiinflammatory

EFA and the inflammatory

EFA omega 6 (found in most animal

products, cereals, vegetable oils). Low

levels of omega 3 (particularly DHA) in the

brain can result in increased inflammation

and the disruption of signaling between

nerves, this contributes to conditions such

as anxiety. Taking a supplement that also

includes vitamin D will help increase the

absorption of the EFA’s.

B Vitamins & Magnesium - correct

nutritional deficiency

Low levels of nutrients such as B vitamins

and magnesium have been linked

to anxiety and other mental health

conditions. When we are under stress our

bodies use more of these nutrients and

our requirement is higher. B vitamins are

necessary for the production and release of

neurotransmitters, while magnesium helps

to regulate the nervous system. Magnesium

helps to relax, calm and protect the

cardiovascular system which can be put

under extra stress when suffering from

anxiety.

Theanine - promote a calm but alert

state of mind

Another really helpful nutrient is

L-theanine, this is an amino acid found in

green tea. The action of theanine is to relax

without sedation - basically it encourages

an alert but relaxed state of mind and

in doing so is very effective at reducing

anxiety. There are also other remedies

such as Bach flower remedies, essential oils

and herbs that can make a big difference

in your child’s mental health. Herbal

teas such as Passionflower, Chamomile,

Lemon Balm and Licorice are all helpful to

encourage a feeling of calm. Bach flowers

can be individually prescribed to suit the

individual child’s emotional personality,

they are very effective in helping to

reduce feelings of fear, loneliness, fatigue,

hopelessness, restlessness and sadness.

Our Herbalist Nadine, is available to

prescribe Bach flower remedies as well

as herbal formulas and give advice on

which nutrients are the most suitable.

She is available for private consultations

on Tuesday and Thursday 10-2pm and

within the store at other times.

‘Famous for their roasts!’

NZTrio, New Zealand's leading piano trio

concludes its 2017 Christchurch concerts with Soar

this November with guest violinist and fellow

Mainlander, Manu Berkeljon. Cellist Ashley Brown

and pianist Sarah Watkins are delighted to be

working with Manu, who is originally from the

West Coast and currently based in Sweden with a

position in the Dalasinfoniettan orchestra, to bring

this powerfully moving programme to

Christchurch audiences, including the world

premiere of Anthony Ritchie's Childhood and the

NZ premiere of Onaia by Dorothy Ker.

Described as a 'national treasure' and 'New

Zealand's most indispensable ensemble' (William

Dart, NZ Herald), NZTrio is renowned for their

eclectic repertoire, outstanding talent, and warm

kiwi stage presence. ey smash outmoded
