BAKER BRIAN Cate starts

work at 1am.

But when his shift is over at

Sydenham Bakery by 10am, Mr

Cate doesn’t always head home

to bed. For the last 16 years,

every Tuesday and Thursday

he has delivered food parcels to

families from Burnside to Belfast

and every suburb in between.

Mr Cate has spent nearly 6000

hours volunteering through

the Papanui Baptist Church, in

conjunction with 0800 Hungry,

delivering food to more than

11,000 families and individuals

in the north-west.

Without Mr Cate at least

14 local families would be

struggling to eat. And his

dedication to the community

has been acknowledged as he

received a Kiwibank Local Hero

Award on Thursday.

REPORTS revealing death or

serious injury are likely at a

Fendalton intersection should

have been made public, a residents’

association says.

The Glandovey, Idris and

Straven Residents’ Association

obtained safety audits from the

city council which say “death or

serious injury” at the intersection

of Glandovey and Idris Rds is

“likely” once every five to 10 years

due to visibility issues between

vehicles and pedestrians.

Association spokesman James

Wilding said the community

should have been aware of these

audits as their lives are at risk.

Residents have been battling the

city council to address ongoing

roading, traffic and safety issues in

the area for almost a year.

During the saga, city council

chief executive Karleen Edwards

recommended residents not be

involved in a work shop to find

solutions.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

from the editor’s desk

THERE’S SOMETHING very fishy

about the city council’s approach to the

traffic safety campaign under way by the

Glandovey, Idris and Straven Residents’

Association.

There’s been a few U-turns in this saga

which has been covered by Nor’West News.

We reveal the latest twist on page 1 today.

Residents’ association spokesman James Wilding has uncovered

reports which relate to road safety in the area. He had to

get them through the Official Information Act.

James is a prominent lawyer; he knows his stuff.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board was

also unaware of the reports.

Ward councillors Raf Manji and Aaron Keown didn’t return

our calls, so we don’t know at this stage what they know.

The plot thickens.

Parking loss will hurt businesses

• By Julia Evans

AN investigation into the

impact of the loss of car parks

at Northlands Shopping Centre

is under way.

Mall owner Kiwi Property

is set to start work on an $18.8

million upgrade in January,

which will see a new entertainment

precinct, Langdons

Quarter, added.

City council staff are working

on an impact report for

residents and businesses,

which will be taken back to the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board at a meeting early next

year, board member John

Stringer said.

The quarter will take away

29 mall parking spaces – which

has raised concerns with the

board and local businesses over

the impact the loss will have on

the wider area.

Mr Stringer said the extension

was an asset for the area.

But the board’s concern was

about negating any effects it

will have on traffic and parking.

“The area is already congested

and, if the mall is taking away

parks, that’s going to be an issue

for us,” he said.

Mr Stringer said any major

shopping centre has to be aware

of the impact it has on the residents

and businesses around it.

John Stringer

Vicki Bain

“They have to be responsible

to the public interest,” he said.

Papanui Super Liquor owner

Carolyn Moffat said there were

“big concerns” for businesses in

the area if the parks.

It comes on top of the

proposed installation of a bus

lane which would take away onstreet

parking on Main North

Rd.

She said if both go ahead, it

could see them go out of business.

PROBLEM: Northlands Shopping Centre is set to build a new

entertainment precinct, which will see 29 parks lost.

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

“It could be the nail in our

coffin.” Ms Moffat said not

many people parked at the

mall and walked back to the

on-street businesses. But people

would park on the street and

walk back to the mall.

Northlands Shopping Centre

manager Vicki Bain said while

29 parks could be removed, she

said there would be alternative

parks available.

“We know the Langdons Rd

multi-level car park, located

on the corner of Langdons Rd

and Sisson Drive, is currently

under-utilised,” she said.

Ms Bain said in the future the

multi-storey car park would be

expanded to meet the growth

in demand from the entertainment

precinct.

Christmas tips to keep

your pets safe over the

festive season

‘Tis the season to be jolly! In the spirit of the

coming festive season the staff at McMaster

and Heap Veterinary Practice wish to give

you some helpful tips on how to keep your

pets safe and happy over this busy time.

Festive foods:

Many festive foods can be harmful and

toxic to cats & dogs – here are some of

the major ones that pop up every year at

Christmas time!

Grapes and Raisins - Some types of

grapes and raisins have been shown to

cause kidney failure in dogs when eaten

in toxic quantities. So think before offering

your pet some tasty Christmas cake or

yummy ‘treats’ off the fruit platers.

Onions - Pieces of raw onion, onion

powder, or even cooked onion can cause

damage to red blood cells, which could

result in hemolytic anemia.

Garlic - fresh and powdered forms of garlic

are more potent than onions. These also

cause damage to red blood cells. Cats are

much more sensitive as they have more

fragile red blood cells.

Xylitol - Xylitol is a sugar alternative that

is used in many commercial ‘sugar-free’

candies, gum, and other food items.

Xylitol has been shown to cause severe

hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and liver

damage in dogs and can be fatal. Xylitol

keeps popping up in unexpected places –

the newest one is peanut butter, so be sure

to read the label carefully.

Macadamia Nuts - dangerous to dogs

when eaten can result in weakness,

depression, vomiting, incoordination, and

tremors. In most cases, dogs developed

clinical signs within the first twelve hours

after eating the macadamia nuts.

Chocolate - Contains Theobromine and

caffeine which can cause increased heart

rate, tremors, and excitation, depending

on the type and the quantity ingested

potentially death when ingested at a toxic

dose. Other effects seen with chocolate

overdose are vomiting, diarrhea, increased

thirst, increased urination, and lethargy.

Dark chocolate is the most serious as it

contains the most theobromine, then milk

chocolate, while white chocolate doesn’t

contain any, but still not healthy for your

dog to have.

Cooked bones – These easily splinter

and the bone shards can cause choking or

get stuck in your dog’s gums or stomach

resulting in emergency surgery. Discourage

your dog from foraging in your bins and try

to secure all of the lids.

Christmas Decorations

Christmas decorations are not for pets to

play with.

• Keep your pet away from plants, many of

which are poisonous, especially lilies which

are extremely toxic for cats and results in

acute kidney failure.

• Keep electrical wires and batteries out of

your pets reach. Chewing electrical cables

can cause electric shock or burns to the

mouth.

• Be careful if you are using tinsel on your

tree. If eaten, the tinsel can block your pets

intestines – we saw several of these last

Christmas!

Don’t forget about your RABBITS

Flystrike is a serious condition in rabbits.

It occurs mostly in the summer months

and we see a lot of cases over the holiday

season as people get really busy and forget

to regularly check on their pets.

Flystrike is extremely distressing and it is

also potentially fatal. It is caused by flies that

are attracted to damp fur, urine, faeces and

the odour of the rabbit’s scent. The flies

will land on the rabbit normally around the

rabbits rear end and lay their eggs. Within

a very short time of 2 hours the eggs will

hatch into maggots which start to feed on

the rabbits skin. This process happens very

quickly and is not always caught in time.

Check your rabbit twice a day and if you

find a maggot on your rabbit take it to us

immediately.

Reports reveal road deaths risk

•From page 1

However, the Fendalton-

Waiamairi-Harewood

Community Board went against

that decision.

“Residents do not understand

why, when issues have been

raised for so long, the city

council did

not tell us that

its own postconstruction

audit from

BECA stated

that there was

an occasional,

so once every

David

Cartwright

five to 10 years,

risk of death

or serious

injury because

of the footpath design,” Mr

Wilding said.

The association received

three safety audits from the city

council after submitting a Local

Government Official Information

and Meetings Act request.

Mr Wilding sent the reports

to the community board, which

had not been aware of the audits,

chairman David Cartwright

said. He said it was frustrating

that a “number of interested

parties”, including residents and

the board, hadn’t seen this key

information.

But Mr Cartwright said he

and city councillors Raf Manji

and Aaron Keown would be

taking the issue to the city

council, as well as chief executive

Karleen Edwards and Mayor

Lianne Dalziel, on behalf of the

residents and the board.

“It sounds like something

we want to get fixed as soon as

possible,” he said.

The city council was unable

to respond to questions from

Nor’West News before deadline

on why the board and residents

were not told of the audits. City

councillors Keown and Manji

did not return calls.

Mr Cartwright said the board

would move onto finding out

where the “communication

breakdown” came from after the

safety issues were addressed.

“We’ll look to find out how did

this happen and what learnings

can we take because it might be

happening across the city in a

much bigger picture,” he said.

The three reports were

completed by engineering

consultant firm BECA over the

scheme and detailed design

stages of upgrading Glandovey

and Idris Rds in 2012-13, as well

as a post construction audit in

stop control lines on the eastern

arm of Glandovey Rd and the

location of the crossing point on

the south-eastern side of Idris

Rd, vehicles approaching the

intersection will not be able to

see pedestrians waiting to cross

the road . . . This may lead to

vehicle/pedestrian conflicts,” the

audit said.

Mr Wilding said residents

have told him they do not feel

safe walking or cycling there.

“Now, from reports obtained

from the council . . . we are

beginning to understand why.”

A request has been sent to Environment

Canterbury to monitor

The board has also asked the

That data would then be compared

New St Margaret’s principal

CANADIAN-born Diana

St Margaret’s College executive

Mrs Patchett will leave her

Gillian

Simpson will

step down

after a decade

in the role

at the end of

term two.

TRIBUTE: Departing principal Gillian Simpson and her

husband David in front of the boat which was named in her

honour.

Trust

board chairman

Albert Brantley said Mrs

Patchett, who is originally from

the far north of Canada but has

Australian parents, impressed

the board during the selection

process.

“She has demonstrated to

the trust board and senior

leadership team that she has the

professional and personal skills

required to both maintain St

Margaret’s highly regarded culture

and values and to lead the

college’s future development,”

he said.

Mrs Patchett has been principal

at the Albany school since

2013. From 2007 to 2012, she

was assistant and acting principal

at Brisbane’s Moreton Bay

Boys’ College.

“The trust board is very grateful

to Mrs Simpson for agreeing

to stay on until the end of term

two to assist with Mrs Patchett’s

transition into the role,” Mr

Brantley said.

He said the board and the

school community would like to

express gratitude to Mrs Simpson

for her “outstanding decade

of service”.

“We have every confidence

Mrs Patchett will build on this

success and commitment to

girls’ education, presenting

many more generations of empowered

young women ‘to live

THE START of a Papanui

wetland development marks

the first step in the Cranford

Regeneration Plan.

A memo sent to the Papanui-

Innes Community Board said

work is beginning on the wetland,

between QE II and Ellington

Drives that will help reduce

flood risk and enhance water

quality throughout the area.

“The landscape design provides

not only the main visual aspect of

the Buller’s Stream storm water

facility, but also represents a balance

between functional stormwater

requirements, enhancing

the biodiversity of the site and

providing opportunities for the

public to positively engage in the

space,” it said.

The work marks the beginning

of the Cranford Regeneration

Plan, a city council bid for a

housing development on the rim

of the Cranford basin.

The plan will see up to 420

homes build when about 38ha

of former farmland between

Winters and McFaddens Rds is

regenerated.

The rest of the basin will be

used for the wetland, which will

establish a natural waterway

ecosystem through the area,

as well as the introduction of

“hundreds of native trees” and

“thousands of native plants” and

an open recreational area with

walkways, viewing platforms and

boardwalks.

A cycle and walkway between

QE II and East Ellington Drives

will also be built.

early 2018 and finish before the

AGE CONCERN is pleading for

the reinstatement of a Papanui

bus service decommissioned

following the earthquake.

Ngaio Marsh Retirement

Village residents are fed up

with having to walk 650m from

the village on Grants Rd to the

closest bus stop after a route was

deemed redundant following the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Age Concern project manager

Yvonne Palmer said because

Papanui now has the highest

concentration of elderly people of

any suburb in the city, the route

is once again necessary.

“After the earthquakes, when

the central city was munted, people

didn’t need the bus. But ECan

should be encouraging older

people back in,” Mrs Palmer

said.

She said, as it stands, ECan is

not making it easy for people to

use public transport.

Mrs Palmer spoke to the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board, which is writing a letter

of support to ECan and will

make a deputation to the greater

Christchurch public transport

joint committee.

ECan public transport planning

manager Edward Wright

said there were no immediate

plans to reintroduce a service on

Grants Rd.

A devastating stroke when she

was 36 left Ms Williams unable

to move the right side of her

body.

To help her adjust to her

new life, she started playing

wheelchair football.

She was selected to play for the

Canterbury Boltz Power Chair

team, before representing New

Zealand internationally.

Ms Williams said playing

football brought so much

Public Transport Plan Network

Review, and then at a more localised

level through the subsequent

service reviews.”

He said there would be an

opportunity for the public to

provide feedback during both

reviews.

In the meantime, the board is

looking into providing a shuttle

service for residents of the retirement

village to the nearest stop.

But Mrs Palmer said reinstating

the bus route was more

important.

she said.

without the Mazda Foundation

grant, she could not afford to

“Football really helped me

wheelchair, and being asked to

represent New Zealand was a

dream come true. It inspired me

to set new goals and now I’ve got

many more things I’m aiming to

achieve,” she said.

Ms Williams said the Mazda

Foundation grant was the boost

she needed after fundraising for

two years.

Fire rages, homes at risk

The opening of the 52nd

Parliament last month underlined

the privilege I feel in representing

you as your MP for a second term.

I will be representing your views

in Parliament over the next three

years so please get in touch if there

is something you would like to share

with me on how we could do things

better.

Last week I spoke in Parliament

as part of cross-party support

for the Christchurch Cathedral

Reinstatement Bill – an important

next step in Canterbury’s

regeneration. Government

intervention will streamline

processes and deliver a financial

contribution with a $10m grant, a

$15m loan and an initiative around

fundraising. We need to ensure

the legislation will deliver what we

need on the ground, with many

Cantabrians saying that what should

be driving works on these anchor

and priority projects is quality.

Redwood, Belfast and Northwood

residents contacted me with

concerns this month after viewing

stickers placed by NZ Post on

receiving boxes in their area.

The notices suggested that the

post boxes were being removed.

I immediately contacted NZ Post

to find out what was happening

and am glad to report the boxes

are not being removed and that

the notices advise people that the

clearance times are being reduced.

I have asked NZ Post to please

look at rewording these notices as

they have caused confusion and

concern for many of our elderly

residents.

From my family to yours, I wish

you a healthy and happy Christmas

and a peaceful new year. My

offices re-open on 8 January so if

you need any assistance, please do

get in contact.

Shops bursting with

festive gift ideas

Finding those special gifts and stocking

fillers as well as the Christmas treats for

the table is so easy at our city’s malls and

shopping centres, where the shops are

bursting with festive merchandise.

Every woman likes to receive bodypampering

gifts, and there is a huge

selection of these priced to suit all budgets

at the many pharmacies and gift shops

around the city. Perfume is another

favourite and again there is a wide

selection to choose from, ranging from

exciting new releases to the well-known

fragrances that have stood the test of time.

Lingerie, jewellery, fashion accessories,

homewares and decor items – there’s no

end to the ideas for the women on the list.

The men are equally well catered for, from

the sophisticated metro-male boyfriends,

to the car-crazy brothers and the DIY

in Nor’West News

The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making

up the Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you

haven’t already done so.

enthusiast and keen gardener husbands

and dads. Choose from clothing, books,

tools, personal grooming items and

gadgets to put a smile on their face on

Christmas morning.

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families

more joy than seeing the excitement

of the children opening their presents.

Whether they are delivered by Santa or

snuck under the tree by mum and dad,

the cuddly toys, games, dolls and building

blocks, the candy canes, toy trucks and

pretty dresses currently filling the shops

will bring squeals of sheer happiness from

the smallest family members.

The tweens and teens usually have their

own ideas about what they want for

Christmas, so the gift cards offered by a

wide range of retailers are the perfect way

to please.

FLAME FILES

AS THE summer heats up, so

does the number of calls our

troops are attending.

It’s normal to have about 100

calls in a week.

Weather events, of course, add

to the number.

So the 169 incidents attended

last week can at least in part be

attributed to the weather, or the

heat, to be more precise.

A large number of false

alarms, presumably from fire

detection systems drooping and

a large number of ambulance

assists including, unfortunately,

several sudden deaths, added to

the list.

Also we attended far too many

grass and skip or bin fires.

While a few of these are the

result of accidents most of them

were lit deliberately.

As we go to print we are excited to hear

our new Bishop, Fr Paul Martin SM,

has been appointed to Christchurch. In

celebrating the news, a special thank

you must go to Fr Rick Loughnan for

his leadership in the interim, to the

Diocese for its ongoing support and

we remember Bishop Barry Jones

with fondness. Bishop-Elect Paul’s

appointment represents an exciting

new phase of growth for our

Catholic community.

Thank you to our Board of Trustees,

college and community and members

of the Marian Foundation for your work

throughout 2017.

To our Marian girls – relax and enjoy the

well-earned break. There are some fantastic

programmes, and collaborative project

opportunities planned for 2018.

And finally, congratulations to our 2017

Marian College leavers. The gospel values

– which underpin the special character of

Award in a ceremony hosted by the

The Grand Prior Award is the ultimate

- including former Marian student Steph

Wessing (left) - from around New Zealand

to receive the prestigious award.

‘I love learning new leadership skills and

I’m really thankful I joined St John, as

otherwise I wouldn’t have considered the

Navy as a career path,’ she says.

Georgiana’s plans include a gap year,

travel, and a career in the Navy

as a medic.

The opportunities and benefits of an innercity

campus are many for Marian College

students.

From Year 11, students can choose to

earn credits at Ara Institute of Canterbury,

making the most of excellent facilities and

teaching expertise – just across the road.

Keely says she is very excited to be

accepted onto the fully-funded programme.

‘I’m interested in a career in health,

science and physiology so it will be a great

opportunity to see what Otago University is

like,’ she says.

‘Recognising my gifts and

understanding how I can use them to

help others, was the biggest realisation

for me,’ Rawinia says.

Zonta Awards

The Zonta Awards are a celebration of the

highest sports achievers - leaders in their

sport locally and often competitors on the

world stage.

This year, three Marian College students

were finalists at the Zonta Sports Awards.

Renee Rae won the top award for her

contribution to netball umpiring. A judge

said Renee follows a long tradition of

Marian students who have won the award,

and there was something very special about

Marian College and its tradition of service.

Rebecca Lake (Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Irakehu)

and Millicent Smith (Ngāpuhi) were both

nominated for outstanding achievement

for their New Zealand representation

in football and ice hockey respectively.

This is the second year Rebecca has been

acknowledged in the highly competed

category.

Your fresh food people

CHRISTMAS HAM ON THE BONE GLAZED WITH PINEAPPLE

Ingredients

4kg ham on the bone

1 cup canned crushed pineapple,

drained

1 cup brown sugar, tightly packed

1 tsp ground ginger

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180 deg

C. Run a knife around the shank

end of the ham. Carefully slice

under the edge of the rind at the

base of the ham. Use your fingers

to ease between the rind and the

fat. Pull to gently remove the

rind. With a sharp knife, score

the fat with 3mm-deep cuts in a

diamond pattern. Place ham in a

foil-lined oven pan large enough

to catch any glaze that drips as it

cooks. Surround ham with one

cup cold water.

Drain pineapple and combine

with glaze ingredients in a bowl.

Smear glaze over scored fat of

ham.

Bake ham for 40-45min,

basting at regular intervals until

the glaze has caramelised to a

golden brown.

Rest the baked ham for at least

15min before carving. Sliced ham

can either be served hot or at

room temperature.

300g caster sugar

1 Tbsp dried rose petals

300 ml cream

250g blueberries

250g raspberries

1 lime

250g strawberries

Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 deg C

and line a flat baking sheet with

non-stick baking paper. Using

an electric beater, whip the egg

whites until firm, then whisk in

the sugar. Fold in the cornflour

and rose petals and place large

spoonfuls of the mixture onto

the baking sheet. Bake for 40-

45min.

When the meringue tops are

crisp, remove them from the

FRESH: Tomato plants ready to leave Rolleston. ​

Rolleston Prison donates

tomato plants to

social housing tenants

MORE than 5000 tomato

plants have been handed

over to the Ōtautahi

Community Housing

Trust to be donated to city

housing tenants.

The plants are an annual

project at Rolleston Prison

and are grown from seed

to plant ready for home

gardens.

The plants take eight to

ten weeks from planting

and germination until

they are ready to be collected.

“This project gives

prisoners an opportunity

to give something back

and provides people in

the community with the

means to grow healthy

food for themselves and

their family,” said Rolleston

Prison director Mike

Howson.

“Many of the prisoners

know what it is like to

struggle financially and

they enjoy the opportunity

to do something for the

community, especially

near to Christmas. Seeing

the plants leave the prison

for a person’s garden

means a great deal to the

men involved,” he said.

More than 40,000

tomato plants have been

cultivated and donated

since the Tomatoes for

Tenants Project began

in 2008 and the annual

delivery of the tomatoes is

highly anticipated by the

city housing tenants.

Rick Fraser of Ōtautahi

said the trust values the

partnership with Rolleston

Prison and many tenants

appreciate the plants and

save a space in their gardens

for them.

Leftover plants are gifted

to schools and community

groups.

According to ethnobotanist Chris

Oil is a powerful skin regenerator as

it is one of the most effective agents

in promoting the regeneration and

formation of new tissue, thereby

accelerating wound healing and

the growth of healthy skin. Dilo

Oil is super-absorbing and can

penetrate all three layers of the

skin, offering exceptional cell

hydration and regeneration.

As well as this, Dilo Oil has

potent anti-inflammatory,

antimicrobial, antifungal and

Traditionally, Dilo Oil is used to keep the

skin young and youthful and for just about

any skin complaint. Some of the conditions

for which it is considered helpful include

New collection

Opening Wednesday, 3 January 2018

Kerbside public

holiday collection

is changing

Starting this Christmas, you will notice a change with

your kerbside collection on certain public holidays.

Wheelie bins will now be collected a day after their

usual collection day.

60 Langdons Road, Papanui

Hours: Monday-Friday 7am to 4:45pm

Saturday 8am to 12:45pm

Canterbury SCL advises clients and patients that its Milford Chambers site at

St George’s Hospital will be re-locating to Northfield Business Park in Papanui.

The new collection centre offers convenient opening hours and ample free

on-site parking.

For a fast, high-quality service utilising the latest in medical test technology, residents of

the northwestern suburbs can rely on this new facility for medical tests such as blood

tests, urine and faecal samples. In most cases an appointment will not be necessary.

Medical tests can be requested by your GP (in most cases these will be free) or you

can choose to have a test done yourself, without a medical referral. Your GP will

advise you on any preparation you need to do before having

your test done.

Note: the collection centre at St George’s Canon Wilford

wing will be unaffected by this change and will remain open

with its current operating hours.

We look forward to seeing you at the new centre.

RED

MON TUE WED THU FRI SAT

• Monday collections will be picked up on Tuesday

• Tuesday collections will be picked up on Wednesday

• Wednesday collections will be picked up on Thursday

• Thursday collections will be picked up on Friday

• Friday collections will be picked up on Saturday

These changes will only affect Christmas Day, New Years Day,

Easter Good Friday and ANZAC Day, for all other holidays

collection will continue as normal.

Thanks to everyone who gave feedback on this through our survey.

Please ensure wheelie bins are placed at the kerbside by 6am

on collection day.

Time to check your tyres before

heading away on holiday

As the holidays approach and plans are

made for summer road trips, now is the

time to check that your tyres are in good

condition, says Julie Hurst of JCM Direct,

the tyre specialists in Birmingham Drive.

Julie and her husband Athol own the

business, with Julie running it on a dayto-day

basis.

Now that WOFs on later model vehicles

are issued every 12 months, drivers may

be unaware that their tyres are becoming

worn, Julie says.

“Come in and see us. We offer free tyre

checks, so you can head away on holiday

knowing they are roadworthy and your

family is safe.”

If tyres do need replacing, JCM Direct

offers a wide variety of quality brands at

very competitive prices. They have new

tyres for everything from cars, vans and

4WDs, to caravans, ride-on mowers,

wheelbarrows and trailers. As well as an

excellent selection of quality second-hand

tyres for most vehicles, they hold a vast

selection of 4WD tyres in stock.

JCM Direct also offer puncture repairs,

supply and fitting of new and secondhand

alloy wheels, wheel alignments,

replacement factory steel rims and rim

repairs.

“We also specialise in old rims from

the 1930s to 1970s for people with older

caravans and trailers – the modern rims

won’t fit those,” Julie says.

Finance is available with Q Card or

Farmers Card.

JCM Direct is located on the corner

of Birmingham Drive and Hands Road.

They are open Monday to Friday, 9.30am-

5pm and Saturday 9.30am-1pm. Phone

Is your property

safe from fire?

Here’s a guide to help understand

the risk in your area

During the fire season, there are some risks you need to know about to help keep you,

your family and your property safe.

Throughout New Zealand, there are different levels of risk, depending on where you

live and what the area around you is like. As we build more and more homes in

previously rural areas, the level of risk is different to properties built in a more urban

setting. Make sure you check your property and are aware of your surroundings so

you can be best prepared this fire season.

Steps you need to take to keep your property safe

1

2

3

Make sure you have a ‘safe zone’ around your property

- Clear vegetation close to your home. This could fuel a fire if one started.

- Choose plants with low flammability – native plants are often better.

- Keep your lawns mowed and green.

- Don’t store firewood close to the house.

- Clear your gutters of dry leaves.

- Be careful when using any mechanical equipment in dry conditions.

Have an escape plan and an agreed safe meeting place

- Go to www.escapeplanner.co.nz to make a plan to get out of your

home safely and agree a safe meeting place. Practise this regularly.

- Think about where you will meet if you need to evacuate the area.

- Have an emergency evacuation kit in case you need to leave quickly.

- If in doubt, leave early.

Good access for firefighters

- Fire trucks need a lot of space to manoeuvre. Make sure there are no

overgrown trees or other obstacles that may prevent access to your

property.

- We can pump from water supplies such as a pond, pool or tank.

- Make sure your address or RAPID number is clearly visible.

The fire risk applies to everyone, no matter where you live.

created a concert that will include the angelic

voices of children singing which is both pure

and for me what Christmas is all about.”
