Loss of<br />

parking<br />

will hit<br />

business<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

PAPANUI SMALL businesses<br />

fear they will struggle if on-street<br />

parking in Main North Rd is taken<br />

away for a bus lane.<br />

The city council has proposed<br />

22 parks be removed between<br />

Harewood Rd and Grassmere St<br />

including all parking outside The<br />

China Kitchen and Super Liquor.<br />

China Kitchen owner Stella Li<br />

said she expects profits would drop<br />

by 50 per cent.<br />

“It will destroy our small business…it’s<br />

very shocking, the city<br />

council should be helping small<br />

businesses,” she said.<br />

On the north side of the road 16<br />

spaces would be lost and heading<br />

towards the city, six.<br />

“Some car parks will need to be<br />

removed in order to accommodate<br />

the bus lanes and bus stops but<br />

there is available parking behind<br />

the businesses on Main North Rd<br />

for customers to use,’’ city council<br />

manager planning, transport and<br />

delivery Lynette Ellis said.<br />

She said the city council would<br />

improve signage directing customers<br />

to off-street parking.<br />

There are three car parks behind<br />

the China Kitchen, which are not<br />

for public use.<br />

THE<br />

EDITOR’S<br />

DESK <strong>News</strong>.................................3, 6-7<br />

YOU HAVE to sympathise with<br />

Papanui businesses as they face<br />

the prospect of losing car parks<br />

outside their stores (see page 1).<br />

The city council is proposing<br />

to get rid of 22 car parks between<br />

Harewood Rd and Grassmere St.<br />

Proposing generally means that’s<br />

what will happen.<br />

And no surprises the affected<br />

businesses aren’t happy.<br />

The car parks will be taken away<br />

to make way for bus lanes, and<br />

that is the dilemma.<br />

Christchurch is an ever expanding<br />

city and with that comes more<br />

traffic. We do need to be encouraging<br />

public transport, cycling and<br />

other ways getting from A to B.<br />

There is no simple answer.<br />

Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board member John Stringer has<br />

been out and about taking photos<br />

of pot holes (see page 3).<br />

Pothole police pound pavement<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

THE NORTH-WEST has its<br />

own pothole patroller.<br />

Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board member John Stringer has<br />

been conducting a personal hunt<br />

for any potholes as he traverses<br />

the ward.<br />

“Following<br />

a historically<br />

high September<br />

rainfall and<br />

aggravated by a<br />

lot of heavy transport<br />

in north-west<br />

John<br />

Stringer<br />

Christchurch,<br />

there has been a<br />

proliferation of<br />

deep potholes<br />

emerging in Papanui, some<br />

several inches deep at busy intersections,”<br />

he said.<br />

Mr Stringer said they are<br />

dangerous for cyclists and he’s<br />

spotted several near the new<br />

Papanui Parallel cycleway.<br />

“Many of the worst potholes<br />

are occurring next to the newly<br />

completed cycleways where<br />

traffic has been narrowed<br />

and the extra tyre stress has<br />

aggravated the road surfaces,”<br />

he said.<br />

Mr Stringer also said he<br />

noticed surface flooding caused<br />

by shingle coming out of several<br />

of the potholes.<br />

potholes and encourages residents to report any they see to the city council.<br />

So the board member is<br />

leading by example.<br />

Mr Stringer took photos<br />

and alerted the city council of<br />

potholes on Harewood Rd; near<br />

the entrance to Papanui Library<br />

on Langdons Rd; on the loop<br />

lane into the airport drop-off<br />

He also found potholes outside<br />

the entrance to Northlands<br />

Shopping Centre.<br />

Mr Stringer said the best way<br />

to report potholes was to use the<br />

city council’s Snap Send Solve<br />

app or phone 941 8999.<br />

“The city council can’t be<br />

everywhere so the role of local<br />

community board members and<br />

residents is to be the eyes and<br />

ears and report dangerous issues<br />

such as potholes,” he said.<br />

HEAD-ON COLLISION RISK<br />

To reduce the risk of a head-on<br />

crash, no-stopping restrictions<br />

will be put in place on Waimairi<br />

Rd, Burnside. When vehicles park<br />

on the south side of the road, it<br />

forces passing vehicles to cross<br />

the centre line, which could cause<br />

a head-on crash. The Fendalton-<br />

Waimairi-Harewood Community<br />

Board approved the no-stopping<br />

restrictions outside 303 and 305<br />

Waimairi Rd at its meeting last<br />

week.<br />

DANGEROUS TREE GONE<br />

A dangerous tree in St Albans has<br />

now become firewood. The semimature<br />

ash tree was outside 90<br />

Bishop St. It was removed by the<br />

city council due to “concerns for<br />

public safety”. A city council staff<br />

report said investigations into the<br />

health and structural integrity of<br />

the tree concluded it needed to<br />

be removed. It was bent over and<br />

protruded onto the street.<br />

CYCLEWAY HOLD UP<br />

Work on the Northern Line<br />

cycleway between Harewood<br />

Rd and Restell St has been<br />

temporarily stopped. The work<br />

on Restell St has been completed<br />

but the city council has to wait for<br />

traffic signals and a pedestrian<br />

crossing to be approved by<br />

KiwiRail before it can continue<br />

work on Harewood Rd.<br />

Principal’s uplifting spring message<br />

St Margaret’s<br />

College<br />

executive<br />

principal Gillian<br />

Simpson writes<br />

about the<br />

importance of<br />

young people<br />

looking after their mental<br />

health in the modern world<br />

SPRING BRINGS light and<br />

hope with each day as we watch<br />

bulbs emerge from winter sleep.<br />

Blossom and leaf buds promise<br />

new life. Children and lambs<br />

frolic in the warming sunshine<br />

and we look to spring clean<br />

our homes. Perhaps we need<br />

to spring clean our minds and<br />

bodies too.<br />

Everywhere we are bombarded<br />

with messages about well-being<br />

and mental health as major<br />

issues for the western world.<br />

Post-earthquake Christchurch<br />

has its own issues around posttraumatic<br />

stress and we are still<br />

seeing evidence of this in our St<br />

Margaret’s College community.<br />

We appear to be in search of<br />

a hedonistic “happiness”, which<br />

is often material, superficial and<br />

fleeting. There is much current<br />

research that indicates that true<br />

“happiness”, which is deep and<br />

sustained and leads to lifelong<br />

EMPOWER: Young people are encouraged to look after<br />

their mental health and well-being.<br />

well-being, can be attained only<br />

through living a life with gratitude<br />

and compassion for others.<br />

We worry for the well-being<br />

of our young women in a world<br />

where they look for instant<br />

gratification, constant reassurance<br />

and affirmation in their<br />

search for perfection.<br />

Social media has contributed<br />

to the rising anxiety and feelings<br />

of inadequacy for many vulnerable<br />

teenagers. Social media has<br />

provided another vehicle for<br />

unkind and negative behaviours<br />

to damage our young women’s<br />

self-esteem.<br />

Pastoral care and well-being<br />

programmes are challenged<br />

in all sectors and St Margaret’s<br />

College is constantly reviewing<br />

and adapting practices and<br />

programmes to best support our<br />

students, parents and staff to live<br />

well and thrive. We are currently<br />

undergoing a full review<br />

of our well-being systems and<br />

programmes. We keep teachers<br />

abreast of the latest trends,<br />

research and best educational<br />

practice.<br />

The new St Margaret’s College<br />

website has a link to a parent<br />

resource page where we share<br />

helpful and supportive links and<br />

ideas with parents.<br />

The St Margaret’s College<br />

graduate profile attributes have<br />

been developed by the staff and<br />

the trust board and identified as<br />

important to well-being and success,<br />

empowering young women<br />

to “live and lead”.<br />

A message for young people –<br />

just try these simple things:<br />

Take time to breathe and feel<br />

your life giving breath.<br />

Take time to grieve and feel the<br />

pain – that’s OK.<br />

Take time to heal and regain<br />

your strength.<br />

Take time to listen to your<br />

heart and to others.<br />

Take time to think and reflect<br />

and learn.<br />

Take time to be brave and<br />

stand for what you believe.<br />

Take time to give and to serve<br />

others as it is in giving that we<br />

receive.<br />

Take time to love as it is in<br />

loving that we are loved.<br />

Take time to be thankful for<br />

true gratitude brings peace and<br />

happiness.<br />

Take time to find the positive<br />

and the beauty in this<br />

world.<br />

Take time to just “be” the<br />

beautiful girl you are.<br />

You make this world a better<br />

place for your being in it.<br />

Love yourself unconditionally.<br />

Readers respond to an<br />

of the Western Belfast<br />

Bypass in the coming weeks<br />

Mike Allfrey – Hopefully it<br />

will end the bottleneck between<br />

the Clearwater roundabout and<br />

The Groynes when travelling<br />

north.<br />

Judith Thomas – I think they<br />

should have built a new bridge<br />

further west instead of making the<br />

traffic faster in the old area with<br />

another lane on the old bridge.<br />

Andrew Bray – Maybe if they<br />

finished it sooner.<br />

Michael Oliver – Going to<br />

make a huge difference to the<br />

north and southbound traffic.<br />

Readers also respond to<br />

the article regarding plans<br />

for a third lane across the<br />

Waimakariri River<br />

Mike Allfrey – If the third lane<br />

will take pressure off the old Main<br />

North Rd, wouldn’t it be safer for<br />

cyclists to use it, rather than put<br />

them nearer to the motorway?<br />

Last time I looked, it’s illegal to<br />

cycle on the motorway so why put<br />

cyclists near it?<br />

Trevor Taylor – Considering<br />

95 per cent of vehicles only have<br />

the driver in them, this lane will<br />

make bugger all difference then.<br />

Hayden Allan – Is the traffic<br />

really backed up from the end of<br />

the motorway to the Waimakariri<br />

Bridge? I think we need to look at<br />

that first. I just don’t feel putting<br />

an extra lane in will do much but<br />

move the bottle neck down to<br />

where it will have to merge.<br />

Yvonne Pender – Listen to<br />

the radio reports every morning<br />

and you know how bad it is. The<br />

widening of the lanes is long<br />

overdue.<br />

Ian McPherson – Put a bigger<br />

pipe in to feed a small funnel,<br />

PLANS: Designs for a third southbound lane across the<br />

Waimakariri River were released by Environment Canterbury.<br />

always improves the flow . . . yeah<br />

right.<br />

David Butler – The clip-on<br />

cycle way is worrying.<br />

Amanda White – Great idea.<br />

Cheaper than a whole new bridge<br />

and the high occupancy lanes<br />

work well in Auckland.<br />

Kevin Geard – The only<br />

winners of high occupancy lanes<br />

are trucks, busses, electric vehicles<br />

and flying nuns. The camera<br />

wielding city council tax men are<br />

punishing couriers that throw<br />

a mannequin in the seat beside<br />

them just to get the job done.<br />

Blair Woodhouse – Five<br />

to seven years late, but great<br />

nonetheless.<br />

Steven Branca – I hope they<br />

design the beams so pigeons can’t<br />

roost on them.<br />

Helen Young – Why three<br />

lanes? Wouldn’t it be better to put<br />

a new double lane bridge over<br />

the river long-term than a third<br />

lane. It seems silly to make it three<br />

lanes.<br />

years and has trained eight<br />

dogs so far.<br />

She said the training takes a<br />

Council<br />

initiates uni<br />

parking review<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

PARKING restrictions around<br />

Canterbury University are set to<br />

tighten.<br />

On-street parking through Fendalton<br />

and Ilam is being audited<br />

by the city council.<br />

The 1996 city council introduced<br />

a comprehensive parking<br />

plan named The University<br />

Parking Plan, but staff said the<br />

demand for parks has increased<br />

beyond that.<br />

In response the city council has<br />

initiated a review and is seeking<br />

community feedback.<br />

The first leg of the audit would<br />

see tighter restrictions on the Fendalton<br />

and Ilam streets, Hamilton<br />

Ave, Lothian St, Ilam Rd, Tuirau<br />

Pl, Swanleigh Pl, Ryeland Ave and<br />

Braithwaite St.<br />

These areas are are currently<br />

P120 between 9am and 5pm<br />

from March to November – the<br />

city council is proposing this be<br />

changed to P120 between 9am<br />

and 5pm year round.<br />

Residents have expressed<br />

concerns about the number of<br />

vehicles parking on their streets.<br />

The public can give feedback<br />

on the proposal through the city<br />

council’s website.<br />

Police patrols increase near school<br />

The patrols are part of<br />

solutions to ongoing problems of<br />

pupils safety on the roads.<br />

They were set out during<br />

a meeting between St Albans<br />

School, the city council and<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones said.<br />

The “quick wins” included the<br />

increased police presence, which<br />

deputy principal Claire Howison<br />

said is making a difference.<br />

Other plans included more<br />

monitoring of the 3min dropoff<br />

spot on Westminster St,<br />

installation of more 3min dropoff<br />

zones and yellow lines on<br />

Sheppard Pl.<br />

Ms Howison said the<br />

school didn’t quite have the<br />

“man-power” to increase the<br />

monitoring yet, although<br />

the police presence had been<br />

“wonderful”.<br />

However, Ms Jones said it was<br />

not only about “band-aid” fixes<br />

– the meeting was also about<br />

looking at long-term solutions.<br />

“We don’t want to be fire<br />

fighting on a daily basis, we<br />

want to take a more holistic<br />

approach and deal with the<br />

future as well,” she said.<br />

City council traffic engineer<br />

Penny Grey is planning an audit<br />

for the area’s roads.<br />

It will start shortly to help<br />

deal with the predicted increase<br />

in traffic from the Northern<br />

Arterial.<br />

City council staff are also<br />

investigating the possibility<br />

of creating another entry to<br />

Loss of parking will hit business<br />

•From page 1<br />

“Our staff don’t finish until<br />

10.30 or 11pm. We don’t want<br />

them to have to walk, it’s quite<br />

dangerous,” she said.<br />

Super Liquor owner Carolyn<br />

Moffat said while her business<br />

has some spaces out back, there<br />

are not enough.<br />

“It’s a glib statement saying<br />

they’ll put in more signage,” Ms<br />

Moffat said. She said the city<br />

council hasn’t understood “strip<br />

shopping.”<br />

“People pull in if they can get a<br />

park, if not they keep going,” Ms<br />

Moffat said.<br />

Mrs Li said people driving<br />

home would phone in for takeaway<br />

and quickly pull into a park<br />

on the street, grab their food and<br />

a bottle of wine before carrying<br />

on.<br />

“They won’t stop if there are<br />

no parks because it’s easy to keep<br />

going for another block and go<br />

to a different restaurant,” she<br />

said.<br />

But Ms Moffat isn’t entirely<br />

unhappy with the proposal, she<br />

is glad to see something being<br />

done about the traffic.<br />

“I just think they need to<br />

look at it again. The bus lane<br />

shouldn’t be full time. There’s<br />

NERVOUS: Stella Li of China Kitchen and Tim Siegert of Super Liquor aren’t sure how they’ll<br />

make ends meet if on-street parking is lost (shown in green on diagrams.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

no congestion on a Saturday or<br />

Sunday afternoon.”<br />

And she said some parks<br />

should remain. Though it doesn’t<br />

have to be all of them.<br />

The city council has proposed<br />

other measures to prioritise<br />

buses and ease congestion on<br />

Main North Rd.<br />

It plans to extend the operating<br />

hours of the part-time bus<br />

lane between Mary and Homer<br />

Sts, install a left turn lane from<br />

Langdons Rd onto Main North<br />

Rd and replace a give-way sign<br />

at Northlands Shopping Centre<br />

with traffic lights.<br />

The public can have their<br />

say on the proposal via the city<br />

council website and there will<br />

be an information event at the<br />

Papanui Library boardroom on<br />

November 7 from 4.30pm.<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Bid to ease<br />

congestion<br />

outside school<br />

gets approval<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

A BID to ease congestion on a<br />

narrow street outside Selwyn<br />

House School has been approved.<br />

The city council is set to put<br />

3min parking restrictions in place<br />

on Merivale Lane after receiving<br />

approval from the Fendalton-<br />

Waimairi-Harewood Community<br />

Board.<br />

The move comes after the<br />

school approached city council<br />

staff with a request for an<br />

on-site visit to look at solutions<br />

for the pick-up and drop-off<br />

congestion.<br />

“The reason this request has<br />

been initiated is that the school<br />

requires a safe area for parents<br />

and caregivers to park and pickup<br />

and drop-off children,” a city<br />

council staff report said.<br />

The 3min parking area outside<br />

the school is currently P120<br />

between 8am and 4pm on school<br />

days. It will change to P120<br />

between 9am and 3pm on school<br />

days and P3 from 8am to 9am and<br />

3pm to 4pm.<br />

The project will cost $1200 and<br />

be completed four weeks after the<br />

city council selects a contractor.

Success with gadgets and gizmos<br />

THREE BURNSIDE High School<br />

students have made the finals of a<br />

national inventing competition.<br />

Felix Backhouse developed a<br />

system that uses drones and hyper<br />

spectral imaging to monitor<br />

bird populations.<br />

He said the idea came when<br />

he realised the Department of<br />

Conservation and Forest and Bird<br />

currently use groups of people<br />

to do bird counts and monitor<br />

populations.<br />

“Given the quick-moving<br />

nature of birds, the fact many are<br />

camouflaged and the likelihood<br />

of human error, this system can<br />

be quite imprecise. My project is<br />

aimed at improving the process<br />

and making it more reliable,”<br />

Felix said.<br />

Vincent Lee’s gadget is an<br />

“all-in-one” device that tells you<br />

information on the weather,<br />

buses, prices for holidays, the<br />

status of different appliances and<br />

is an alarm.<br />

“There is a lot of stuff on the<br />

internet that enables you to access<br />

this information, but it takes time<br />

to access. So I decided to design<br />

a device that makes these tasks<br />

more convenient to access, and<br />

means things can get done faster.”<br />

Jack Breurkes invented a<br />

physics game for mobile devices<br />

intended to be used as a study resource<br />

for students taking NCEA<br />

level 2 physics.<br />

“I wanted to make a game this<br />

year for my programming class<br />

project and I thought a game<br />

Southern Institute of Technology (SIT)<br />

offers a multitude of courses for students<br />

looking to begin a qualification and career, in<br />

the industry of their choice.<br />

Available areas of study at the Christchurch<br />

campus include, Automotive, Social<br />

Services and Mental Health, Construction,<br />

Electrotechnology, Refrigeration and<br />

Air Conditioning, Hairdressing, Project<br />

Management, and Personal Training.<br />

Ever wanted to become an Electrician?<br />

SIT Christchurch campus offer the New<br />

Zealand Certificate in Electrical Engineering<br />

Theory which helps to provide the electrical<br />

industry with people who have introductory<br />

would be an interesting thing to<br />

do . . . I looked at potential areas,<br />

like educational games which<br />

are close to home as we use them<br />

at school. I’m quite confident in<br />

physics, so thought I could make<br />

a game out of it with my knowledge<br />

and help people out while<br />

doing it,” Jack said.<br />

It comes as last week Nor’West<br />

<strong>News</strong> reported Papanui High<br />

School student Michael Hann<br />

was named as a finalist for his security<br />

system activated by natural<br />

disasters.<br />

The students travel to Auckland<br />

on November 7 to attend the<br />

Bright Sparks evening where a<br />

winner will be announced.<br />

knowledge that underpins safe electrical<br />

installation, testing, commissioning, and<br />

A helpful introduction course which can<br />

assist towards getting an apprenticeship,<br />

students will be trained in the skills and<br />

knowledge appropriate to the first stage<br />

of training that will lead to qualifications<br />

in electrical engineering, electronics, or<br />

electrical security; and related trades.<br />

SIT’s New Zealand Certificate in<br />

Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (Trade<br />

Assistant) gives students the required<br />

competencies to function successfully and<br />

effectively at operational levels within the<br />

Refrigeration and Air Conditioning sector,<br />

and graduates can go on to become heating<br />

and ventilation installers, refrigeration<br />

technicians and electrical service<br />

technicians. With three days a week of<br />

on-campus classes and two days of work<br />

experience, students get a great balance of<br />

HEALTH & BEAUTY<br />

Health food business<br />

built on family ties<br />

Established in 1988, the Christchurchbased<br />

New Zealand Health Food<br />

Company is a real family affair.<br />

For founder Rob Haines, the aim was to<br />

supply indigenous New Zealand natural<br />

products to national and international<br />

manufacturers. The success of these<br />

products soon led to the development of<br />

the company’s own retail brands, and right<br />

from the start Rob’s mother Joan played<br />

an active role in the business, as a mentor<br />

and assisting with operations, right up till<br />

when she retired at the age of 82.<br />

Rob’s daughter Ellie is part of the team<br />

as the web and social media administrator<br />

for the company, while his son Sam is<br />

the sales manager. Selina, Rob’s other<br />

daughter, has also joined the team out in<br />

production, alongside her husband Doug,<br />

who is the operations manager. All are<br />

learning all the aspects of the company<br />

and continuing what they hope is a long<br />

family tradition.<br />

The strong family bonds and shared<br />

values are reflected in the workplace, with<br />

their skilled staff enjoying a happy, safe<br />

working environment that is flexible and<br />

practical, with opportunities provided for<br />

training and development.<br />

Sustainability and environmental<br />

responsibility are also key factors for the<br />

company, and this is reflected in how they<br />

source sustainable materials and seek out<br />

ethical suppliers, working with the local<br />

community where possible.<br />

Their products are manufactured<br />

energy-efficiently with waste<br />

minimisation, and they source recyclable<br />

packaging for their own brands and<br />

encourage their suppliers to do the same.<br />

With the increasing interest and<br />

awareness by consumers in living<br />

environmentally conscious and healthy<br />

lives, The New Zealand Health Food<br />

Company is growing and adapting<br />

the range of products to meet these<br />

demands. By providing quality products<br />

at affordable price, their aim is to make<br />

health and wellness available to everyone.<br />

You can see the full range of products<br />

on their website, www.nzhealthfood.<br />

com, and order online, or you can<br />

call into the spacious retail store,<br />

at 215 Woolridge Road, where the<br />

knowledgeable staff will advise on<br />

the right products for your needs.<br />

They also offer an excellent customer<br />

loyalty programme. Opening hours<br />

FOCUS ON HEALTH<br />

Modern diet leads to illness!<br />

It’s not what you eat but what you absorb<br />

Two Australian Naturopaths Stephen<br />

and Shane noticed at the end of the 20th<br />

century more and more of their patients<br />

were experiencing gut, bowel and digestive<br />

issues that were often leading to more<br />

serious chronic health conditions. Being<br />

Naturopaths they wanted to find what was<br />

going wrong and began extensive research.<br />

What they found was although their clients<br />

were generally eating good food they were<br />

not obtaining all the nutrients required for<br />

good health from this food. Further research<br />

showed one of the main problems was the<br />

digestive system, “it’s not what you eat but<br />

what you absorb.” Another well-known<br />

problem is the soils the crops are grown in<br />

have been depleted of many trace elements<br />

and other nutrients that are known to be<br />

essential for good health and therefore the<br />

crops and food are also depleted. If we do<br />

not obtain all the nutrients we require the<br />

body will compensate to some degree but<br />

a lack of too many nutrients will eventually<br />

lead to health issues.<br />

Based on this they<br />

developed VITAL<br />

GREENS, a nutrient<br />

dense powdered<br />

formula that<br />

provides superior<br />

absorption as well<br />

as comprehensive<br />

nutrition. They<br />

decided on a<br />

powdered formula<br />

that could be made<br />

as a great tasting drink because liquid<br />

nutrition is the easiest way for the body<br />

to absorb nutrients especially if digestive<br />

issues are present. The formula provides<br />

76 vital ingredients that work together in<br />

synergy optimising each other’s absorption<br />

and benefits. Vital Greens contains a<br />

carefully balanced blend of nutritionally<br />

rich greens, vegetables, fruits, minerals,<br />

vitamins, essential fatty acids, plant and<br />

herbal extracts, superfoods, powerful<br />

antioxidants, probiotics, essential amino<br />

acids, digestive enzymes, fibre plus a<br />

uniquely alkalising pea protein. It provides<br />

superior nutrition to a multivitamin and<br />

anyone will benefit from it. It is designed to<br />

provide all the nutrients the body requires<br />

for good health. It is also ideal for those<br />

in poor health, those recovering from<br />

injury or sickness, children, athletes, poor<br />

eaters and the elderly. It is also suitable<br />

for people with dietary restrictions and is<br />

gluten, wheat and dairy free. Vital Greens<br />

will help remove toxic waste from the body<br />

while supporting all organs. You’ll often<br />

notice more energy and endurance, better<br />

sleep, a more positive mood, skin problems<br />

improving, less sickness, improved eyesight<br />

and overall better more optimum health.<br />

Further information and how to obtain<br />

the maximum benefits from Vital Greens<br />

as well as tastings is available from the<br />

The gut has a lot to do with how we feel & how our brain<br />

Anxious Kids -<br />

What can you do?<br />

We are all aware that anxiety in our<br />

children has risen considerably over the<br />

last 7 years, the forces that rattled our city<br />

have continued to rattle its citizens and this<br />

has impacted on how our children exist<br />

and respond in their day to day lives.<br />

Of course this is not the only contributor<br />

and it must be remembered that any<br />

mental health problem is not a clear cut<br />

issue. However parents, teachers, doctors<br />

and other people closely working with our<br />

children and young adults have noticed a<br />

change in behaviour.<br />

They are seeing things such as increased<br />

irritability, aggression, separation anxiety,<br />

sleep disturbances and moodiness. The<br />

normal response of anxiety to a future<br />

challenging event has become an out of<br />

proportion reaction to normal daily events<br />

and this is where the problem lies.<br />

So what natural options are there to help<br />

support children’s mental health?<br />

Probiotics - Promote healthy balance of<br />

chemicals in our brain<br />

The connection between the brain and<br />

the gut is key to understanding and<br />

maintaining good mental health. You<br />

need a well balanced microbiome (gut<br />

flora), with an abundance of good bacteria<br />

to ensure the creation and regulation of<br />

neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters<br />

are chemicals that send messages to and<br />

around our brain. Serotonin is one of<br />

these neurotransmitters - low levels are<br />

associated with anxiety and other problems<br />

such as depression. It is important to note<br />

ARE YOU READY<br />

TO DOWNSIZE?<br />

Paying rates for a house that’s<br />

too big? Paying maintenance and<br />

heating costs for space you don’t use?<br />

A move to one of our<br />

architecturally designed villas<br />

at McKenzie Lifestyle Village in<br />

Geraldine will cut those costs.<br />

Three villas are available for<br />

occupation now, priced from<br />

$355,000.<br />

Talk to David Connolly today<br />

on 0800 84 55 24.<br />

that the majority of serotonin is actually<br />

made in our gut!<br />

Fish oils - Reduce cellular inflammation<br />

Fish oils are a source of Omega 3 fatty acids,<br />

unless we eat at least 3 - 4 meals of oily fish<br />

per week we generally aren't getting enough<br />

of this essential fatty acid (EFA). The<br />

result is an imbalance between this antiinflammatory<br />

EFA and the inflammatory<br />

EFA omega 6 (found in most animal<br />

products, cereals, vegetable oils). Low<br />

levels of omega 3 (particularly DHA) in the<br />

brain can result in increased inflammation<br />

and the disruption of signaling between<br />

nerves, this contributes to conditions such<br />

as anxiety. Taking a supplement that also<br />

includes vitamin D will help increase the<br />

absorption of the EFA’s.<br />

B Vitamins & Magnesium - correct<br />

nutritional deficiency<br />

Low levels of nutrients such as B vitamins<br />

and magnesium have been linked<br />

to anxiety and other mental health<br />

conditions. When we are under stress our<br />

bodies use more of these nutrients and<br />

our requirement is higher. B vitamins are<br />

necessary for the production and release of<br />

neurotransmitters, while magnesium helps<br />

to regulate the nervous system. Magnesium<br />

helps to relax, calm and protect the<br />

cardiovascular system which can be put<br />

under extra stress when suffering from<br />

anxiety.<br />

Theanine - promote a calm but alert<br />

state of mind<br />

Another really helpful nutrient is<br />

L-theanine, this is an amino acid found in<br />

green tea. The action of theanine is to relax<br />

without sedation - basically it encourages<br />

an alert but relaxed state of mind and<br />

in doing so is very effective at reducing<br />

anxiety. There are also other remedies<br />

such as Bach flower remedies, essential oils<br />

and herbs that can make a big difference<br />

in your child’s mental health. Herbal<br />

teas such as Passionflower, Chamomile,<br />

Lemon Balm and Licorice are all helpful to<br />

encourage a feeling of calm. Bach flowers<br />

can be individually prescribed to suit the<br />

individual child’s emotional personality,<br />

they are very effective in helping to<br />

reduce feelings of fear, loneliness, fatigue,<br />

hopelessness, restlessness and sadness.<br />

Our Herbalist Nadine, is available to<br />

prescribe Bach flower remedies as well<br />

as herbal formulas and give advice on<br />

which nutrients are the most suitable.<br />

She is available for private consultations<br />

on Tuesday and Thursday 10-2pm and<br />

within the store at other times.<br />

NZTrio, New Zealand's leading piano trio<br />

concludes its <strong>2017</strong> Christchurch concerts with Soar<br />

this November with guest violinist and fellow<br />

Mainlander, Manu Berkeljon. Cellist Ashley Brown<br />

and pianist Sarah Watkins are delighted to be<br />

working with Manu, who is originally from the<br />

West Coast and currently based in Sweden with a<br />

position in the Dalasinfoniettan orchestra, to bring<br />

this powerfully moving programme to<br />

Christchurch audiences, including the world<br />

premiere of Anthony Ritchie's Childhood and the<br />

NZ premiere of Onaia by Dorothy Ker.<br />

Described as a 'national treasure' and 'New<br />

Zealand's most indispensable ensemble' (William<br />

Dart, NZ Herald), NZTrio is renowned for their<br />

eclectic repertoire, outstanding talent, and warm<br />

kiwi stage presence. ey smash outmoded<br />

'intimidating' by presenting a fresh and<br />

approachable ethos that appeals to listeners from<br />

all walks of life.<br />

e SOAR programme prepares audiences for<br />

new heights and perspectives. Weaving through<br />

changing tapestries, you'll find yourself adri in<br />

daydreams (Ireland) where life's complexity is<br />

seemingly simplified (Ritchie), primordial<br />

soundscapes pacify (Ker), and naivety is blissfully<br />
