DETERIORATING: The city council wants to spend $4 million raising stopbanks and replacing sandbags along the Avon River to help prevent flooding.

$4m flood mitigation project planned

Temporary stopbanks need raising and sandbags replaced

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

The height of temporary

stopbanks along the Avon River

from South New Brighton to

Kerrs Reach could be raised and

sandbags replaced under a $4

million project.

A report will go to a city

council committee on Thursday,

recommending “urgent” sandbag

replacements and higher

stopbank levels, in a bid to

reduce instances of flooding.

The temporary stopbanks were

constructed under emergency

legislation following the February

2011 earthquake to mitigate

tidal flooding.

Because the stopbanks

were only designed to have

a “life of five years” and not

designed to withstand high

magnitude earthquakes, the

report said urgent solution was

required.

The Valentine’s Day

earthquake exacerbated the

problem with

five locations

along the Avon

River affected

with increased

seepage, and

cracking.

If approved

construction begins in July.

The news comes after Pegasus

Post reported in February

that Southshore Residents’

Association and the South

Brighton Residents’ Association

INSIDE: • Fifty years of plumbing, p6 • Views on fireworks moving elsewhere, p7

were concerned about the

deteriorated state of the

temporary stopbanks.

City council staff have

recommended that $4 million

be spent on the detailed design

and construction of raising the

stopbanks between 40cm and

50cm and replacing sandbags.

But South Brighton Residents’

Association chairman Hugo

Kristinsson (left) who has

lobbied for a solution, said the

city council’s solution does not

go far enough.

“That budget ($4 million)

is concerning. When they are

fixing the surface, they are

missing the problems which

are in the ground. This is just

cosmetic fixing, it’s like a

makeover for a person with a

black eye. The problem is still

there,” he said.

“They just want to get the

extra 20 years to push it away.

They just want to get us off their

back,” he said.

Land sale will break ‘agreement’

Campaigner

has proof that

QEII land

cannot be sold

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Community campaigner Garry

House has his sights set on

proving the partial sale of

QEII will break a 53-year-old

agreement.

Mr House says he has a document

which will prove that the

city council cannot

sell land for Shirley

Boys’ and Avonside

Girls’ development.

It relates to

what he says is an

agreement between Garry House

the city council and

the former owners of the land –

the now defunct New Brighton

Trotting Club.

Mr House said more than 50

years ago the land was sold to the

city council at a cut price on the

condition that the land was only

ever used for recreation and sport.

“It is stated quite clearly that

the council would use it for sport

and recreation only. They would

maintain it under this environment

in perpetuity,” he said.

But the city council says there

is “no evidence” of any such

agreement.

“We have done extensive

research into this and there is no

evidence or documentation to

support the claims . . .” said a

city council spokeswoman.

However, Mr House said he

will fight to ensure the city council

honours the agreeement.

Mr House is the chairman of

Standards New Zealand and

works as an engineering consultant.

He successfully lobbied to

stop the city council installing

pressure wastewater systems

septic tanks on residents’ properties

in Parklands and North New

Brighton.

Mr House is also the secretary

of the New Brighton Returned

Services Association.

When he tabled the document

he found last year while in Wellington,

searching land records

at the Land Information New

Zealand at the hearing on the

QEII land sale last week.

He said it was met with

“shock” and silence.

City councillors ​Yani Johanson,

Glenn Livingstone and

David East are on the panel.

After listening to Mr House’s

submission, Cr Johanson requested

that city council staff

investigate the matter further.

Cr Johanson said a decision on

the sale would be made after the

hearing panel made a visit to QE

II Park this week, and after all

relevant information had been

passed on by city council staff.

TINY HUTS COMPETITION

Five small-scale ‘tiny huts’ are

headed to New Brighton this

summer and the city council is

holding a competition on what

goes in them. The tiny huts are

based on English seaside beach

huts, each are 2 sq m. They are

to be placed in New Brighton’s

town centre in summer to liven

up the community’s public

places and showcase activities.

The five winning designs will

get $2000 in prize money.

The New Brighton Tiny Huts

Design Competition is open

until June 28, with entry forms

available online at www.ccc.

govt.nz/tinyhuts.

SCOOTER, CAR COLLIDE

A man in his 70s was taken

to hospital last week after a

collision between his scooter

and a car. The incident

happened at about 4.15pm on

Thursday in Mairehau. St John

took the man to hospital with

moderate injuries.

STRONGER WASTEWATER

SYSTEM FOR ARANUI

Another 200 Aranui homes

will be connected to a more

earthquake-resilient wastewater

system over the next four

months. This week Stronger

Christchurch Infrastructure

Rebuild Team will begin to

connect the homes to the new

vacuum system.

Housing subsidy still needed

A Government heating and

insulation subsidy programme

comes to an end in June. Community

Energy Action Charitable

Trust chief executive Caroline

Shone writes this week’s column

about the importance of the

programme and why it should

continue in some form.

Shelter is one of

the most basic of

human needs and

the Universal

Declaration

of Human

Rights says that

everyone has the

right to housing.

It can be debated that housing

that makes people sick, isn’t housing

at all.

However, houses that are damp,

houses that are cold, with the

people living in them unable to

heat them to an adequate temperature

to keep them healthy, are

a reality for many households in

Christchurch.

The old, the young and the sick

suffer most in those houses.

We all know the result.

Every winter sees many residents

ending up in hospital with

preventable cold-related health issues.

Even healthy people get sick

more often in those cold, damp

houses.

SOAP

BOX

From experience we know that

installing insulation and heating

in people’s homes especially those

with health conditions will reduce

hospitalisations, delivering cost

savings to the health system.

Installing insulation and heating

is a one-off cost but the benefits

last a long time, saving money on

health and saving lives every year.

The Government through the

Energy Efficiency and Conservation

Authority has spent $450

million nationwide on insulation

and heating subsidies over the last

couple of years.

And we know it has made a

difference.

The current subsidy programme

comes to an end in June this year.

It would be fantastic if subsidies

would be available in the future

for those who need insulation.

It’s a great way for Christchurch

people to help those in their community

who need a bit of help to

create a warm, dry, healthy home.

You said:

Elinor Graeme: Back into

of the city. We have never gone

to New Brighton on November

5 as it is too difficult to get there

and back.

Sasheen Elizbeth-Jane

Brownlie: Back in Hagley

Park where there is less wind

and therefore less smoke. Yeah

great. Or up where the gondola

is, to see from both sides.

Bethany Nehoff-

Park. Should have always been

in there.

Jill Reesby: What about Victoria/

Bowenvale/ Mount Vernon

Park areas? Can be viewed

from all over the city, even

from your private backyard. No

traffic issues there. Tune into a

live radio station for the music

to go with the show. And there

are areas around these parks for

gatherings for those that wish to

be there.

Margaret Gamblin: Back in

Hagley Park where it used to be.

It’d be easier for traffic.

Jess Gardner: Combine it

with the Rolleston fireworks

instead - make it better and

longer.

Todd Cameron: What about

Sugarloaf car park? Then the

whole city can see them. Just

ditch the teeny ones and go for

the big ones.

Katrina Prendergast: Nowhere,

save the money and put

it into more needed resources.

Less harm on the animals too.

Andrew Johnson: Hagley.

Traffic would be a nightmare in

Scarborough.

it be done from boats, like in

Hunt on to find owner

of mystery parakeet

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

When the Foley family moved into

their Burwood house last August,

they weren’t expecting to be woken

by a screeching parakeet every

morning.

But that is exactly what happened.

Now the search is on to find the

owner of the parakeet who, inspite of

the early 6.30am wake up call each

morning, the neighbourhood has

grown quite fond of.

The Foleys moved just a few

kilometres from their earthquakedamaged

Lake Terrace Rd home,

and for the first month of their stay,

everything was normal.

But by mid-September, they were

being awoken consistently at about

6.30am every day by the screeching

parakeet.

Roger Foley said at first he had

no idea what was making the noise,

and went outside to investigate.

“I had no idea what was going on,

and went outside to see this beautiful

parakeet in the trees,” he said.

The next day he talked to his

neighbours, who told him they were

surprised that the bird had returned

to the neighbourhood after a cold

winter.

FRIENDLY ALARM: This parakeet has a tendency to wake up its neighbours at

6.30am every day. But they love it.

They told him it was a regular

visitor in the past summer, but presumed

it had died in the winter.

“They said last winter it had

come too, and they just loved it,”

Mr Foley said.

He said the parakeet had a regular

schedule it stuck to.

“It’ll appear in our trees at

6.30am and start screeching, mainly

in our big tree. Then it’ll fly across

to the neighbours and disappear at

about 10.30am. It’ll come back at

night briefly, and then go away until

morning,” he said.

Now, instead of seeing the parakeet

as a loud nuisance, Mr Foley’s

children enjoy being woken up by

the bird.

“Now they love the parakeet too. I

just worry someone is missing their

pet,” he said.

Mr Foley said he had no idea how

old the bird was, or who it belonged

to, but thought the owners should

know it was safe and in good health.

Phillip Mitchell

50 years plumbing: ‘Filthy’ but fun

Avonside’s Phillip Mitchell has had his hand in

the city’s pipes for half a century. He talks with

Matthew Salmons about his life as a plumber,

being a tutor and winning the Graeme Victor Smith

Outstanding Contribution to the Industry Award

Well Phillip, you’re clearly the

plumbing master around here,

but why did you decide to get

into the trade in the first place?

My father went with me to a

vocational guidance counsellor

in the square. The guy that was

interviewing me said ‘I know

a bloke by the name of Athol

Jamieson.’ He knew him on a

fairly friendly basis so I went

and saw him. He had a fairly

large company and said ‘there’s a

job there if you want it.’ I’d seen

plumbers, we’d not long had the

sewerage put on in the house and

a flush toilet put in, which you

guys would take for granted now.

I was fascinated. So I thought

‘it’s not a bad idea’, and that’s

what it was.

So when did you start your

apprenticeship?

In the days when I did my apprenticeship,

you signed up for

what they called a 12,000 hour

apprenticeship which equates to

six years. In that era, when you

got to your fifth year you could

sit your license and if you passed

your exam you didn’t have to do

your sixth year, so there was a

lot of incentive there. In those

days it was about five pounds a

week which probably equates to,

I don’t know, $200 these days.

A tradesman now could get

about $30 an hour, about $1200

a week, and an apprentice, well

they probably get more than

$200, so a lot of incentive there

to pass. I spent most of my apprenticeship

under a guy named

Bill Walsh, an Irish plumber,

and also with his brother John.

They were ship’s plumbers, they

were fastidious. If something

happened it was either right or it

was wrong.

And after you finished your

apprenticeship did you stay

with the same company?

No, after I finished I left

plumbing for a wee while and I

did quantity surveying. It was a

very good experience and I was

fortunate that I had the trades

experience to do it. It was very

enjoyable.

Did you work on any big

projects?

I did, it was Wilkins and

Davies I was working for at the

time. The buildings at Canterbury

University were being built

then, and we worked on them.

That was straight out of my apprenticeship,

so when I left that I

went to learn about drain laying.

I’ve always enjoyed drain laying.

When you’re doing it, you feel

like you’ve achieved more than

you would working in a bathroom.

I did that for the best part

of a year, then I put the sewerage

into John Walsh’s house. That

was the practical part of my

exam. I started working for a

drain laying firm then, but they

went out of business, so at about

23 I started working for myself.

You knew nothing then, but that

was beside the point because

you thought you did and you had

to get experience the hard way.

So I was working for myself for

a while and I was doing some

tutoring at night. When you’re

tutoring and still in the trades,

to the students, you’re still a

plumber.

Working full time and tutoring

at nights, it must’ve taken a

toll on your social life?

I was young, I was only about

27 when I finished that and when

you’re young you could burn the

candle at both ends a bit.

Where did you do your

tutoring?

In town, it was called

Christchurch Technical College

then - it has had about three

name changes since then. It was

only one night a week at that

stage. That was about 1969, then

me and another guy started commercial

drain laying. We had a

lot of fun, we did all of the drainage

at QE II which was a monstrous

job, but we just got stuck

in and got on with it. We were

young and wishful, ‘of course we

can bloody well do it.’

Far out, was it only you two

doing the job?

No, we had 10 staff on. We

updated the Kaiapoi sewerage

plant as well. It was physical,

hard work but enjoyable. You

were outside all the time. Sometimes

you wore yourself out,

but that’s just life. We formed a

partnership called Mitchell and

Rodgers. You used to be filthy

everyday, but that’s part of your

life and you hope that you can

look back on your life and have

enjoyed it.

How did it feel to receive that

award?

I thought why me? I’d started

in 2005 with just me, with

another tutor joining in 2006 and

another in 2007. We now have

eight, virtually a new tutor every

year. We do work for the school’s

organisation and Ara Institute of

Canterbury managed apprenticeships

in plumbing and gas fitting.

We’ve grown and grown, I have

to ask myself, is this real?

It’s been an absolutely fantastic

journey building this thing, I

have had some really great support,

and I didn’t do it alone by

any stretch of the imagination.

I’m putting back what I got out

of the industry.

And your family has been

supportive for all this time,

tutoring and working?

I could never have done it

without the support of my wife,

Beth, she’s always worked in the

background.

Where did you meet your

wife?

Through one of my cousins,

she was a friend of hers, they

bought us together, many years

ago now but that’s alright. We

went to the pictures, the usual

courting thing, it was different

then than it is today, 6 o’clock

closing, it was the 6 o’clock

swill. We went to dances and the

pictures, things like that, nothing

out of the ordinary.

Where did you grow up?

In Marshland Rd, bottom end,

so I’m not very far from home.

There wasn’t many houses. We

were in one of the houses at the

bottom end. It was still basically

farmlands, was still in the country

then. Shirley Lodge it was

called then, I don’t know what

days a week. ​

it’s called now, we were midway

between that and Shirley Rd, but

we still lived in the country.

And where did you go to

school?

Shirley Primary of course,

my great-grandparents on one

side took up land on the side of

Marshland Rd, so it was pretty

family orientated from there.

Every kid’s good at school, I was

just an average kid at school.

I didn’t excel at anything. My

mother would’ve thought I was

outstanding.

Has your passion for plumbing

been passed on to your

kids?

No, I’ve got two daughters and

one grandson who is 32. I used

to take him on work experience,

he enjoyed it, and he could’ve

done it blind, but he said there

was too much to learn. But for

the students, I’ve chosen my

path, I have to sell them the

industry. You go to work for fun,

if you don’t enjoy your work, get

another job! I’ve got to be passionate

about the industry.

Not looking at retirement?

Well, I’m only working three

days a week, I treat it as a hobby

now, not a job. I’m going to be 74

in a fortnight, so I guess I’ll have

to sooner or later, but I’m still

enjoying it.

The annual fireworks display will not be held at

the New Brighton Pier for at least the next two

years while it undergoes repairs. The Pegasus

and if it was worth fighting to keep them in the

Southshore Residents’

Association chairman Bill

Simpson: “It would be a

bit disappointing to see

it moved, but I suppose

the repairs are necessary.

I imagine it’d be good

to have it temporarily in

Scarborough but for the

long term it should come

back to New Brighton. If

New Brighton residents

are keen to keep it there,

we’d definitely be in full

support of them, but I

don’t think we would

initiate that ourselves. I

would think a promise

that it would come

back would be better

than a replacement

event – there may be

neighbourhood events

on the beach but they

wouldn’t be of the same

scale.”

New Brighton Union

Parish co-ordinating

minister Mark Gibson:

“People have repair

fatigue in the east. I

just don’t think people

will be able to handle

anymore disruption to

places they enjoy visiting

in the area. It’s sort of

taking yet another thing

away from New Brighton.

There have been a lot of

losses, the community is

desperate to see things

built and installed and

all the rest of it. They

want to see new things

that aren’t going to be

taken away. I think there

needs to be something

else happening, if not

in New Brighton then in

the east in the interim

during those repairs. But

the city council should

be committing itself

long term to return the

fireworks in New Brighton

once the repairs are

finished.”

IMMUNISE YOURSELF

Have you immunised yourself & family against the

Strategic Urban

Rejuvenation Force

chairwoman Lesley

Fulton: “I think probably

the fear is that if it leaves

it may never come back.

Most of the work will be

done from underneath

and from the sea-level,

so it’d just be about

getting a few people onto

the pier to set up the

fireworks. Keeping them

on the pier if possible

should be the priority. If

there is an opportunity

for the community to

fight for them then they

should, it’s something

special for us. If it is taken

away then I’d rather

have a promise than a

replacement event. If

they were prepared to

have something in its

place for those two years

that would be good but

I would want to see it

come back after the

repairs.”

WARM STEAM

VAPORIZER

City councillor Glenn

Livingstone: “What the

closure means is two

things for me: The first is

amenity – we still want the

community and the city to

use and enjoy the pier. The

other is safety. As elected

members we have to make

good sensible decisions.

I’m not saying we can’t do

it, but we are up against it.

We need to keep pushing.

I will be fighting to keep

the fireworks. It’s a drawcard

for New Brighton and

I think we need to keep

it. If they have to move, if

they really have to . . . it

is hard to get these things

back. I would say we need

a promise to keep it there

after the repairs are done.

As soon as you open that

door for another venue, it

is hard to get them back.”

Natural Steam

Relieves Cold &

New Brighton Pier and

Foreshore Society deputy

chairman Tim Sintes:

“When it was first being

built, they held fireworks

while it was still under

construction. There must

be a solution. If the tide

is right, we could have it

on a barge in the estuary,

so everyone could see it.

We want it on the pier,

but we could have it

there. It’s more than just

a fireworks display for

us – it’s one of the last

things we have. You’ve

got to be careful there

(bringing in a replacement

event) too, because if you

bring a replacement to

New Brighton you have

to think about it affecting

the community it was

in before. I can’t think

of any other community

event that could replace

the fireworks. I wouldn’t

have a replacement event

and promises have a habit

of being broken around

here.”

Burwood-Pegasus

Community Board

member Linda Stewart:

“It’s worth fighting for

100 per cent. If we lose

it we’ll find it very hard

to get it back. There is

always a solution, it’s just

if the staff will work on

it. No one has come back

and said it can’t be held

on the pier yet, so there

is every possibility it can

be done. I don’t know if a

replacement event would

be that successful. What

else brings the whole city

to New Brighton? The

library is closing too, and

I keep waiting for council

staff to say ‘here’s the

solution’, but they don’t.

Probably I think the Santa

Parade would be a good

replacement, maybe

running it from the pier

to Rawhiti Domain. I’d

take both. I’d like to see

replacement events, and

then when the repairs are

done, the fireworks return

to the pier.”

New Brighton inspires

surfer turned author

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

NEW POOL: City councillor Yani Johanson, Jack Cleminson, Regan and

Liam Glass, and Beau Cole check out the demolished site.

New pool work starts

Work has begun on rebuilding the

Avebury Park paddling pool in

Richmond.

The pool, on Evelyn Cousins

Ave, has been closed since it was

damaged beyond repair after the

February 2011 earthquake.

The demolition of the old pool

began last Tuesday and was completed

last Friday.

The new facility will be rebuilt

with new concrete surrounds,

new seating areas, a new access

ramp and a large shade sail. The

original plant room and existing

fencing will be reused.

It is expected the new paddling

pool will reopen towards the end

of the year, in time for the summer

months.

Hagley-Ferrymead Community

Board chairwoman Sara Templeton

said the pool had been missed

by the community and it would

be great to have it back up and

running.

“I know that many parents

have taken their children to the

pool over the years and that it has

been sorely missed, especially

with all of the hot days we’ve had

recently,” she said.

NEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf 1 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m.

If you were a surfer hanging

around New Brighton beach in

the 1970s you may recognise

some of the characters in a new

novel based on the area.

Leon Paulin, 62, has released

his new book Shooting

Albatrosses, which he says

does have characters that are

“loosely” based on real life

people that influenced his own

childhood.

The novel is about a young

surfer taking on the waves at

New Brighton, Scarborough

and Taylors Mistake, while

battling his own problems.

“It is kind of loosely based on

my experiences from the time.

The characters have kind of

little essences of real people in

them. It’s a fictitious story with

my background knowledge of

the areas,” he said.

Mr Paulin said it can be

strange when a reader asks if

the characters are based on real

people they know.

“People have since come up

to me and said is this character

based on such and such, or that

reminds me of this person – it’s

quite strange. It’s not intentional,”

he said.

He used his “extensive”

knowledge of the coastal

suburbs of Taylors Mistake,

Scarborough and New Brighton

while writing the post-earthquake

story.

“I was a bit of a surfer back in

the day – my mates and I would

mainly hang out around New

Brighton Beach.

“We used to live in North

New Brighton on Bowhill Rd,

and then Keyes Rd near New

Brighton, before moving to

Oamaru,” he said.

Mr Paulin said the story was

unique, but still “in a way, typically

Kiwi”.

“It’s basically about a teenage

boy that’s been deserted by

his father and has to look after

his mother. While he tries to do

that, he also tries to prove himself

to his father. It’s very kiwi

in a way,” he said.

Shooting Albatrosses is Mr

Paulin’s first published book,

which he is “quite excited”

about, although he has written

others which haven’t been

published.

Amputee’s story told

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

When Trixie Wuts was born her parents

had a very difficult decision to make

whether or not to amputate both of her

legs to the knee.

On the advice of medical professionals,

Trixie’s parents Anton and Margot

Wuts decided amputation was the best

solution.

Their experience has been documented

in a children’s book that they wrote,

called Little Jellybean.

It is being distributed by the Amputee

Society of Canterbury and Westland to

help families facing a similar choice.

The society helped get a $5000 grant

for the publishing and distribution of the

book from the Artificial Limb Service.

Trixie was diagnosed with distal arthrogryposis

before she was born, meaning

she had crooked or hooked joints in

her feet.

She had many procedures done when

she was born, which attempted to correct

the deformities in both of her feet, but

they were largely unsuccessful.

The surgery however, was and Trixie

now “leads a full and active life” with

her new feet.

Amputee Society of Canterbury and

Westland president Mark Bruce said the

more families that can be reached with

the book, the better.

“It’s about raising awareness for

parents in a situation where their child

is very unwell. The story is mainly

about the parents having to make an

incredibly tough decision to help their

children,” he said.

Mr Bruce said the book will become

an invaluable source for those looking

for support.

“If you have a young one with an

amputation or have a young one about

to undergo an amputation then this is a

great resource.

“The future of the federation is in its

youth . . . If we can affect just one family

with the help of this book, then it’s been

a worthwhile venture,” he said.

The society are making copies of the

book available from their national and

regional co-ordinators, who can be contacted

on www.af.org.nz.

NEW HELP: Amputee Society of Canterbury

and Westland president Mark Bruce

is helping promote a new source of

information for parents. ​

Haircuts for Haircuts

Celebrating 30 years of great service

Haircuts for Haircuts are

celebrating – this year, they

turn 30. That’s 30 years of

reasonably-priced great

haircutting and 30 years of awesome,

friendly customer service.

It is rare for a small business to be so

successful for so long - Michelle has been

the driving force behind the two cutting

bars for the three decades. She believes

they have done so well because they go

above and beyond for their customers.

“We are already affordable, but we

offer discounts for pensioners, university

students and children on top of that,”

she explains. “We are here for the whole

family and we offer a welcoming, friendly

atmosphere to make the experience

enjoyable.”

It’s easy and convenient, too. Because

they are located in the Bush Inn Centre

and South City Mall, getting a haircut can

be combined with shopping and running

errands. They are open mall hours, 7 days

a week and there’s no need to be tied to an

appointment. Just head on in, take your

place and sit and relax while you wait.

There are usually 4 to 5 stylists working at

any time, so you’re never waiting for long.

But it’s much more than that – all their staff

are fully-qualified, professional stylists and

they focus on nothing but hair cutting.

That means they have expertise and will

take the time to find out what you want and

give you the best advice. They can deliver

trend-of-the-moment cuts or whatever a

client requests. They pride themselves on

the positive experience they offer so that

clients leave them looking good and feeling

great. The salons are up to the minute, but

Michelle has given them a taste of the past,

too, installing traditional barber’s chairs

in recognition of her 30 years’ anniversary

so the customers get to combine the

traditional with the ultra-modern.

Michelle knows that it’s customer loyalty

that has kept her in business for so long,

and repays customers with a loyalty scheme

where every 8th cut is free. She also offers

styling products so you can recreate your

salon look at home but her real aim is to

cater for the community by providing

fabulous haircuts for the whole family in

a friendly atmosphere and all at affordable

prices.

the corner of Riccarton and Waimari

Road (telephone 3487008) or the South

WORLD CHAMP: Ethan De Rose (second from right) recently won two junior world

development speed skating gold medals.

Ice skater celebrates

birthday with gold

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Shirley Boys’ High School year 10

student Ethan De Rose celebrated his

14th birthday by becoming a youth

world champion.

Speed ice skater De Rose became the

500m and 1000m sprint world youth

champion, when he competed

in two competitions

in Melbourne.

He also won a bronze

medal when he competed

in the age grade above.

De Rose took to the

ice for the International

Skating Union’s World

Development Short Track

Speed Skating Trophy,

and then the tri series

competition the following

weekend.

In the first competition, he blitzed the

preliminary heats for the 1000m, winning

by more than 10sec. He followed

that up by a 3sec win in the A final, earning

him his first gold medal.

The 500m sprint competition was a

lot closer though, and as there were no

preliminary heats, only a straight final,

De Rose said he was happy to come

away with a win by just a third of a

second.

“Yeah, really happy. I actually got my

personal best in the 500m sprint. I did

it in 47.8sec, which is only 0.8sec away

from a junior Olympic qualification

time,” he said.

De Rose competed against international

so much energy that they need

an outlet for it? Development

through drama is the ideal approach to

teach confidence and channel youthful

energy while building self-esteem.

The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy has

been in New Zealand for 32 years. This

highly regarded worldwide programme

helps students aged 5 to 17 fulfil their

potential by acting confidently and speaking

clearly. This unique, self-development

programme helps achieve invaluable life

skills. The confident, articulate child makes

friends easily, accepts challenges and new

directions. Confident children become

well-rounded adults.

Our fully qualified teachers are trained

in the Helen O’Grady Drama system,

they ensure each child is encouraged

and valued in a warm, positive learning

environment. Lessons stimulate and

motivate students without the exam or

peer group pressure. Weekly class activities

include speech training, creative movement

and improvisation. Our Youth Theatre

programme encourages the development

of leadership and organisational skills.

Three terms of the year cover the selfdevelopment

programme and in the fourth

term all students prepare a performance

for parents and friends. We also offer

Trinity College London examinations as

an option for those who wish to pursue an

international qualification.

Our safe structured learning environment

encourages team

building. Most

Manage

your time

How can you effectively manage

your busy day? Time

management is not necessarily

working “harder,” but rather,

“smarter.” Here are five time

management mistakes we

should all avoid to increase our

daily success both on and off the

job.

1. Starting your day without a

plan of action. Time

management is doing the right

things initially.

2. Losing balance in your life.

Our lives comprise seven vital

areas that need balance. These

areas include health, family,

financial, intellectual, social,

professional, and spiritual.

3. Working with a messy desk or

work area. Studies have shown

that the person who works with

a messy desk spends, on

average, one-and-a-half hours

per day looking for things or

being distracted by things.

4. Getting insufficient sleep.

Studies show that nearly 75 per

cent of us complain on a regular

basis that we are tired.

5. Giving up a lunch break. Many

do not take a lunch break.

Studies have shown that after

doing what we do for several

hours, we start to “dull out.”

A lunch break, even a short

15-minute break, gives us a

chance to get our batteries

charged up again to more

Bottom line: Prioritise! End

your day with a list of things to

do tomorrow. Ensure they are in

timeliness.

Device to Prevent Snoring

Why put up with broken sleep,

when help is at hand with

Snorex, an appliance that

prevents snoring, sleep

apnoea, and dry and raw throats.

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth for

comfort, and a follow up service is provided.

Denise Lim has been involved with Snores

for 19 years and has had a 98% success rate

with people using the appliance. Snoring can

be a health hazard, causing sleep apnoea,

where the person actually stops breathing for

short periods.

It can cause short-term memory loss,

tiredness and contribute to high blood

pressure.

The Snorex device does not feel restrictive,

is non-invasive and carries a money-back

guarantee.

Many people are referred by ear, nose

and throat specialists, however, anyone can

phone for an appointment.

For an information pack or to discuss

the Snorex further, phone Denise Lim

A Mother of All Gifts

Take the worry out of Mother’s Day!

Wondering what to buy Mum

when a box of chocolates or

hand-cream won’t do another

year round?

A clever Lower Hutt woman has given me

a new idea. When many of our mothers are

feeling the ache of ageing limbs, or suffer

with chronic pain or circulatory problems,

Jenny Watson’s Aircycle is a perfect self-help

answer. It’s totally transportable, folding to

fit your pocket, simple in concept, easy to use

and acclaimed by a growing number of users

in its efficacy, and it can be easily posted in an

envelope if Mum lives a distance away.

For painful hands, feet or legs this small

therapeutic device is used when sitting, most

effective when used in several short spells a

day - no need for long tough workouts. Jenny

says, “Many delighted people report that it

helps relieve arthritic pain and other problems

such as cramp and ankle swelling. We know

that regular use while sitting watching TV

can begin the progress of stronger legs, better

balance, comfortable walking and freedom

from discomfort. It’s an easy way to manage

a range of health conditions – it offers

relief. Any of us can use the Aircycle almost

anywhere.

Jenny showed me some of the many

grateful letters she’d received. Often Aircycle

users have spent heavily on medications

and therapy before discovering this simple

effective, drug-free device. Jenny says, “News

is fast spreading by word of mouth, but we

still have a way to go.”

Well, I say, time others knew about it. Well

done Jenny! Mum – you’re going to like this!

Care, compassion and skill

define Nurse Maude

Nurse Maude has been caring for the people of Canterbury since 1896.

Much of this nursing care

and support has been in the

community so people can stay

in their own homes and retain

as much independence as possible.

Every year millions of kilometres are

clocked up as nurses and home support

workers cross the Canterbury region

providing personal, domestic, nursing and

specialist palliative care.

“All the nursing and homecare services

we provide, whether it be in the community

or in the Nurse Maude Hospital or Nurse

Maude Hospice are founded on the core

principles of partnership, respect and

nursing excellence,” says Jim Magee, chief

executive of Nurse Maude.

“Our unique strength lies in the ability

of our people to blend that with the values

which motivated Sybilla Maude in 1896;

that the needs of the patients and clients are

met with quality nursing care and support

provided by skilled and compassionate staff.”

“The broad spectrum of care provided by

Nurse Maude encompasses the two most

vulnerable groups in our society, the very

young and the elderly.”

Nurse Maude has always been a

collaborative organisation, providing care

in partnership with general practitioners,

practice nurses, district health boards, ACC

and the Ministry of Health among others.

“It is through improved communication

and the sharing of information that these

relationships continue to strengthen for

the benefit of our patients and clients,” says

Magee.

From the frontline staff who exhibit

that blend of expertise, efficiency and

compassion which makes Nurse Maude so

special through to those who support them

in administrative roles and Nurse Maude’s

volunteers who give so generously of their

time and talent, the organisation that is

Nurse Maude attracts enormous respect in

the community.

While the technology, processes and

systems used to provide that care today

would no doubt astonish Sibylla Maude,

there is little doubt that 120 years on that

the organisation that bears her name and

continues her legacy of care would meet

with her wholehearted approval.

Effective Natural Skincare that is

Ideal for Problem Skin

MooGoo produce a full range

of safe, natural skin and scalp

products that are especially

suited for those with problem

skin. In these products they only use top

quality edible ingredients that are known

to be highly effective and good for our skin.

These active ingredients are only used in

correct concentrations for effective results

and not just added to look good on the label.

Because the MooGoo range is so safe and yet

so effective is probably why it was rated the

number one most preferred brand of nonprescription

(non-steroid) creams for those

suffering from problem skin in Australia.

It is also recommended by many medical

practitioners in Australia.

As MooGoo products are safe and natural

they are ideal for long term use from babies

to adults. They are an effective alternative

or follow-up treatment to chemicallybased

ointments.

Although MooGoo products are commonly

used by people with skin complaints like

Eczema, Psoriasis and Dermatitis etc, the

range of products are becoming increasingly

popular for healthy skin care. The Skin Milk

Udder Cream is the lightest of creams that can

easily penetrate the skin with its beneficial

ingredients especially the milk protein which

has been shown to increase skin elasticity

and health. It is non-greasy and contains no

mineral oil or other nasties.

The comprehensive MooGoo range

includes the popular Milk Shampoo and

Conditioner, Milk Wash, Cleansing Bars,

Fresh Cream Deodorant, Body Spray, Edible

Lip Balms, Baby range and much more.

The MooGoo range and further detailed

information and advice is available from

the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s

Health & Natural Therapy in New Brighton.

Keep comfortable with

EnviroMaster

Are you struggling with the heat

of Summer or wanting to get

organised for Winter? With the

ever changing weather patterns,

heat pumps have the flexibility of being able

to heat and cool which is an advantage no

other appliance can offer. This represents

great value for your investment as you can

use it all year round. The team at Enviro

Master Ltd can help keep you cool this

Summer either at home or work. Enviro

Master supplies, installs and services all

the leading brands including Panasonic,

Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means

our team can show you which system and

brand will best suit your needs.

We currently have savings up to $600

off the recommended retail price on

selected models.

Would you like to maximise the number

of days you can use your swimming pool?

Heating your pool can do this and one of

the most cost effective ways is with a water

heat pump. Enviro Master Ltd can supply,

install and service you swimming pool heat

pump providing you with a comfortable,

extended swimming season.

Servicing your heat pump is extremely

important to ensure that it is working

as effectively and efficiently as possible

resulting in a healthy, hygienic heat pump,

lower power bills and greater comfort. But

beware, not all cleaning companies are

equal. We are constantly hearing of people

being charged huge amounts for servicing

and all they are getting is a heat pump

clean. We at Enviro Master, are qualified

engineers and therefore are able to fully

test and diagnose any problems you may

or may not be aware of with your heat

pump. Also, as we are associated with all

major brands, we are able to repair these

under warranty if they are still within the

warranty period.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for

any repair or damage caused to the system

due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s

five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration

so customers have an understanding on

how it will best meet their needs.

For a free in home consultation, call

Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our

showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd,

Waltham, Christchurch.

An extensive range

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required air exchange for

your building requirement. Smooth-

Air offers a wide range of ventilation equipment,

from air vents to ducting for fans, for both

the commercial and domestic markets. They

have an extensive range of fans and ventilation

components in-store but they can also provide

innovative solutions tailored to differing

requirements.

VENTILATIoN

This includes both the exchange of air to the

outside as well as circulation of air within the

building. It is one of the most important factors

for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality

in buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

- warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In case

of poor or insufficient air intake from outside,

the oxygen content decreases, humidity and

dustiness levels increase. If exhaust ventilation

is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air,

smells, humidity and harmful substances are

not removed.

Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes

stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel

drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like a high

content of dust and tobacco smoke are harmful

and can cause various diseases. Even bad smells

can cause discomfort or irritate the nervous

system. In summer, it’s easy to open windows for

cross ventilation, however as winter approaches,

we start to shut up out houses to trap in the heat

and as a result, air quality can decline.

It is therefore very important to ensure good

air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

HOME OR OFFICE

TOO HOT OR

TOO COLD?

Allow us to help you achieve year-round comfort

with a professionally installed heat pump.

We have a wealth of knowledge and experience

and we guide our clients through the selection

process - we don’t believe in a “hard sell”, we will

only recommend a heat pump that will suit your

heating/ventilation needs and we will offer this

18 Glendevere Terrace, Redcliffs

Auction: May 12, 2016

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 3-car garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing #: FM4869

Designed to maximise the glorious

views, you will be captivated as

you gaze over the estuary and

Southshore to take in the sweep

of Pegasus Bay to the Kaikouras beyond.

This is not for the casual observer as the

home conceals its appealing and spacious

interior from the street, and it’s only once

you have soaked up the stunning views will

you be able to enjoy the expansive family

living, including a bright, modern kitchen

and defined dining area, then explore further

into the home.

To suit families who want extra space,

there is a large formal lounge/media room

on the first floor, which would also suit those

who wished to have an office to work from

home as it features easy separate access from

the street while on the lower level the home

offers a master bedroom complete with en

suite, three further good-sized bedrooms

and main bathroom. There is also the benefit

of a shower room on the ground floor, which

is ideal when you get back from a quick surf

or trip to Sumner beach that is just a short

drive away.

For your outdoor entertaining, the west

-facing timber deck is perfect for summer

BBQs, or relaxing with a glass of wine at

the end of the day. The internal access,

triple garage for all the boy’s toys completes

the package.

Having just completed a major renovation

to a very high standard, the home will meet

the demands of the most discerning buyers

and, while I am surprised the decision has

been made to sell such a wonderful home, I

have been given clear instructions to sell the

property on auction day, unless sold prior.

Open Home dates: Wednesdays and

Sundays, 2pm to 2.40pm. See you at

the Open Days. For more information

or to arrange a private viewing, contact
