POLICE FOOT patrols have been

brought in to try and stop youths

brawling near the busy Shirley

and Marshland Rds intersection.

Fifteen youths fought at a bus

stop near Burger King about 3pm

last week, leaving one in hospital

and six facing charges.

Burger King Shirley manager

Tina Sherma has welcomed the

increased police presence.

In the past few months there

have often been up to 10 or 12

youths loitering nearby smoking

and drinking, she said.

Mrs Sherma and her staff were

threatened when they asked

youths to move on.

“I went to talk to them (and)

they said they were going to

chase me to my house and find

Accredited installers 10yr workmanship guarantee 6 yr warranty

out where I live,” she said.

Senior Sergeant Stephan

McDaniel said the problem can

be countered by more policing.

Five units were called to the

brawl last Monday.

The location is a big factor in

causing problems.

“The location (the bus stop) has

a high volume of youths and foot

traffic at that time of the day,” he

said.

Senior Sergeant McDaniel said

the youths fighting last week were

not school students as had been

previously reported.

“It’s not necessarily school kids,

it’s young adults that aren’t going

to school.”

Shirley Vet Clinic employee

Christine O’Keefe said it’s not the

first time something like this has

happened. • Turn to page 5

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

WHAT AN election it’s going to

be on Saturday night.

The best and potentially the

closest in many years, and one

which will shape the country’s

future for sometime.

Star Media, publisher of the

Pegasus Post, will be following

the election on our website www.

star.kiwi and we’ll have reporters

out on the street and bringing

you latest updates through the

afternoon and into the night.

The Star on Thursday will also

have an in-depth election preview.

The polls clearly show people

have shifted to voting for either

National and Labour and this

could spell doom for many

smaller party politicians who

have made it into Parliament on

the back of MMP.

Indications are voter turnout

will be high and which ever party

mobilises its supporters best on

Saturday will win.

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Sophie Cornish

THE NEW boardwalk in South

Brighton is set to be finished in

the next couple of weeks.

It will extend from Estuary

Rd, where it meets with Caspian

St, along the edge of the estuary

to a walking track along the

water front of South New

Brighton Park.

The construction by

Bushnell Builders has

been ongoing for about

six weeks, said Tim

Sintes, Coastal-Burwood

Community Board

deputy chairman.

The city council

budgeted $180,000 for the

project.

An upgrade of the

small bridge near the

South Brighton jetty has

also been included in the

construction.

Mr Sintes said there was

boardwalk.

“There’s so much interest out

UPGRADE: A small rail will be put down

both sides of the boardwalk, while the

bridge is also being upgraded by Bushnell

Builders.

Brighton boardwalk almost ready

there, it’s fantastic,” he said.

“We knew people loved it but

when I saw the comments, it

just made me realise how much

it means to so many people,” he

said.

A plan is being formed to

organise an opening day walk

for residents who want to visit

the new boardwalk.

GYM SCHOOL LEASE

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board will

recommend the city council

grant a new lease to the

Christchurch School of

Gymnastics at QE II Park.

Its current home at QE

II was built in 1996 and

was badly damaged in the

earthquakes. Rebuilding

on the current site is not a

viable option, according to

geotechnical and engineering

investigations. The school’s

preference is to relocate to a

site in QE II Park where more

favourable land conditions

exist.

BASKETBALL HOOP

The damaged basketball

hoop in the New Brighton

amphitheatre next to

the library on Marine

Pde is set to be repaired

before summer. Coastal-

Burwood Community

Board Chairwoman Kim

Money says the hoop will

be removed and re-installed

with a cherry picker, due to

it’s tall height. City Care have

instructed the community

board it may take between

Garden theft breaks hearts

Kelly Dugan

is the chief

executive and

founder of

SmileDial, a

charity which

helps families

who have a child with an

ongoing medical condition

or disability

Support is provided by

SmileDial to families through

financial aid, advice, counselling

and other activities, which aim to

put a ‘smile on people’s dial’.

Recently, one of the projects,

SmileDial’s different type of

perfect sensory garden, was hit

by thieves for the third time, who

stole trees which were planted by

families.

I want to change the world,

I want to make life easier for

everyone, and I want to make

sure everybody has what they

need, especially families raising

children with special needs.

I decided six years ago that I

would try and provide the support

to others that I was so desperate

for six years ago, when I became

the parent to a child who is a

different type of perfect.

I decided I would not allow

anyone else to feel as alone, scared

and overwhelmed as I did (we

did). So I started a charity called

SmileDial to be there when others

aren’t.

Recently, the media has

discussed the theft of trees from a

sensory garden our charity built

in 2016.

Like everything else, I have the

choice of how I will deal with this.

Yes, there is anger and frustration,

but also there is a sense of

defiance.

I choose to look at the positives,

the people who have offered to

help, the people who have worked

EMPTY:

The site

where

the stolen

citrus

trees

used

to be

planted.

to replace the trees and the many

people who stand with me in

defiance. We will not let a few

idiots ruin something amazing,

something that was created with

love for those who are often

forgotten.

Why should I spend any more

of my energy focusing on the

negative actions of a few and let

them destroy something amazing?

Something built by many for a

few, something created to provide

a special place for all children and

also those people who no longer

carry their children in their arms

but always in their hearts.

I will not talk or write about

those who bring negativity to the

garden, but rather I will celebrate

those who helped create it and

those people who fill the gaps left

by the trees with love.

Readers respond to

the Pegasus Post article

about there being no

justification for the New

Brighton police station to

be open on Saturdays

Paula Rountree – It is

certainly frustrating when you

want to report something that

requires you to fill out a form

at a police station, or you want

to drop something off (found

item), especially when you

work “office hours” yourself.

Opening Saturday mornings

would be very helpful.

Jen Shortley – But if it’s

open and available for the general

public when they need it,

then they might actually report

crime, which means National’s

claims about the lowest crime

rates wouldn’t be valid. Far

easier to ask people to go all the

way into the station in town

(which they won’t bother doing

for minor stuff) so stats look

good, right? Safer communities

together lol.

Tatia Buckingham – I

can see both sides of this. It’s

hard for the police since . . . the

police funding under National

has been cut and has made

their job so much harder so

adding more hours would need

funding. If they aren’t going

to have it open every day, then

maybe it could be just a shift

of hours so that it is ‘manned’

at the times stats say are most

needed. For example, man it

on Fridays and Saturdays and

close it Sunday and Monday

or Monday and Tuesday. Same

amount of hours just in different

periods of time. The most

high activity times? Don’t live

out there so don’t really know

first-hand, but was just my first

thought.

Peter Maguire – Saturday

is the ideal day for the public to

report minor crimes, drop off

lost property, firearms inquiries

and so many more services the

police provide at a local police

station.

Your usual Monday-Friday,

nine to five worker would

benefit from a Saturday without

the need to travel into central

and find a car park. I’m sure

there are many that would

rather keep or throw away lost

property, than traipse into

central.

Fire rages, homes at risk

CONCERN: Youths often loiter near Burger King Shirley.

SLIM CHANCE: The New Brighton police station is unlikely to open on Saturdays.

Nicolas Christopher Pegg

– There is no justification for not

having this station manned 24

hours a day, seven days a week –

look at the crime statistics.

Kieran Frazer – To protect

and serve . . . but not on

Saturdays.

Chrissi Tukaki – The

beatings and burglaries and

criminal activities occur in the

east after 4pm

Gavin Simôn – Police

stations should be attended over

night and after hours when all

the crime usually occurs.

Luke Boyce – Lol, I went

in to report something and a

closed for four days sign was

up. Found stolen passports and,

yes, closed sign was up. Went

in once more and got told to

come back tomorrow as the staff

person had to take a statement

so had to close. Noted an issue

that community policing could

sort – closed. Same issue and

person the next week – still

closed. If you can’t report to

the eastside police station, then

there’s no wonder the stats say

it’s not worth opening

John Walker – No

justification for the station to be

open What they mean is, that

there is no money to pay for it to

be open on weekends.

Benny Fitz – Interesting

term justification. Arguably

the fact that crime is still being

committed justifies a stronger

presence.

Do the crimes need to get

significantly more violent or

costly before police feel there is

justification?

Stephen Dickinson – The

NB police station is a joke.

Every time I’ve needed it, it’s

been closed. Someone smashed

my car in a parking lot, mid-day,

like a year ago (and) was told I

need to go to the police station

for some reason I can’t

remember, but NB was closed so

had to find a way into town with

no car.

More police in bid

to stop street fights

• From page 1

“There have been issues over

the years with school kids

fighting down the alleyway here,

it’s certainly not the first time it’s

happened,” she said.

Ms O’Keefe walked past who

she believed to be the instigators

at lunchtime last Monday and

noticed them drinking.

“They were just starting to act

a bit strange and intimidating

then. Then at about 3pm we

saw them chase a boy onto the

bus and I think that’s when the

bus driver must have called (the

police) to ask for someone to

come down. About half an

hour later it all kicked off,” she

said.

Ms O’Keefe said she has

previously felt intimidated by the

crowds which often congregate

outside Burger King Shirley.

“If you walk past a group of

them, they all watch, and you do

feel intimidated.”

Other nearby businesses,

including Z Shirley, Shirley

Medical Centre and Lumino: The

Dentists Shirley, did not want to

comment on the issue.

Flying fox

may be

removed

THE CONTROVERSIAL noisy

flying fox at Muka Park in the

Prestons North sub-division may

be removed.

The Coastal-Burwood Community

Board will recommend at

its meeting on October 2 that the

city council remove the flying fox.

After failing to comply with

District Plan noise limits, the flying

fox mechanism was disbanded.

Following this, 488 people

signed a petition for it to stay.

The board then spent $15,000

trialling a quieter flying fox cable

and pulley mechanism. However,

it still did not comply with most

noise limits in the area following

testing in June.

The noise tests indicated the

flying fox was within the acceptable

noise limit for daytime use,

but there was a marginal level of

compliance due to there being a

noticeable “squeak” noise.

Now the board is set to recommend

it be removed and moved to

another park being developed in

the area. Parks being considered

for the flying fox include Kahu

Kiwi Park and the Prestons Park

sub-division.

Woofing down burgers for charity

• By Sophie Cornish

SNAP FITNESS New Brighton’s

manager is eating burgers to save

troubled dogs.

Marce ‘The Tongan Tornado’

Taulango will defend his title

against five other contestants in

the Lower 9th Diner’s burger eating

contest on Saturday.

Mr Taulango has raised money

for charities in the past two

annual events, in spite of the

contest not being for charity.

Competitors will get 5min to

eat as many burgers as possible.

Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue

is the charity chosen by Mr

Taulango this year. It provides

food, shelter and re-homing for

abandoned and rescued bullbreed

dogs.

In 2015, his charity was the

Second Chance Dog Rescue, and

Cure Kids in 2016, where more

than $1200 was raised.

Those making donations can

either pledge money per burger

eaten or make a contribution.

For each burger Mr Taulango

eats, he will raise $104.

“The more I eat, the more I can

help out the charity,” said Mr

Taulango.

Lower 9th Diner is now getting

involved in the charitable act,

money for bull-breed dogs. If you are interested in adopting

pledging $10 per burger eaten to

the Cancer Society.

Mr Taulango has won the past

two contests at the diner.

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

“In the first year, I entered and

thought why not try and make

it a charitable event and I ended

up winning, which I didn’t really

expect,” he said.

Mr Taulango is hoping to demolish

10 burgers this year.

Last year, he managed to devour

eight and a half burgers and

six in 2015.

No preparation has been done,

other than training at the gym –

a strategy which has worked for

Mr Taulango in the past.

“I happen to be up against professional

eaters and I just try to

copy their techniques,” he said.

The charity is close to home for

Mr Taulango, who owns a bullbreed

dog himself.

Abbey Vanderplas, founder of

Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue,

started the charity in her own

home and expanded it with the

help of volunteers.

Mr Taulango’s wife Rebecca

also helps out at the centre and

walks the dogs.

•The burger eating contest

will be held on Saturday,

from 6-7pm, at the Lower

9th Diner, 89 Lichfield St.

East impressed with QE II

City councillors

visit complex

building site

• By Sophie Cornish

CITY COUNCILLOR David

East has given progress at

the new QE II site his tick of

approval.

And the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board member has

vowed to be the first to jump in

the pool when it reopens.

Cr East was one of three community

board members who

visited the site last Monday.

The $36.5 million complex,

scheduled to open in May, will

include a 25m lap pool, a 25m

learn-to-swim pool, recreation

pools, a hydro-slide and a fitness

centre.

Cr East was surprised by

the size of the complex, after

some people in the community

criticised it for being “underwhelming”.

There had previously been a

call for the pool to be 50m.

“Long-term, we certainly have

the ability to do it, but it is not in

the city council’s plans to go near

there in the short-term,” Cr East

said.

“Once you are inside, it’s a lot

He said the fitness centre also

takes up a significant space. “You

will revel in the state-of-the-art

and space that is being devoted to

this activity.”

FLAME FILES

Don’t fight fire unless

you’re sure to succeed

• By Mark Thomas – specialist fire

investigator

I WENT to the fire on Clifton

Hill, in Sumner, which recently

destroyed most of a home.

There were a few things there

that are worth mentioning.

Firstly, the occupants were in

an unfamiliar house and once

smoke began to restrict visibility

it was fortunate that one of the

group had familiarised himself

with the route to the back door

and was able to herd most of his

family in the right direction.

Secondly, and knowing human

nature, understandably, the

group leader tried to put the fire

out.

It was too advanced at this

stage and all he managed was to

receive very painful burns.

He only evacuated the house

when the smoke was too thick to

breathe.

He very nearly didn’t make it.

I was asked later by media how

the fire grew so large so quickly.

There was nothing unusual

about the fire growth here.

GUTTED: This three-storey house will have to be demolished

after a fire ripped through it. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

Modern furniture, made

of plastics, foams and nylon,

provides a huge reserve of fuel,

allowing much faster fire growth

than was normal 50 years ago.

Using the word fuel is very

appropriate because all of those

materials originate in oil. And

burn accordingly.

Anywhere you stay, home, motel,

Shirley Spartans win spot at nationals

Shirley Boys’ High School basketball coach Scott

Howell evaluates his team’s performance at the

South Island tournament which booked them a spot

at nationals in Palmerston North next month

OUR SENIOR A team – the

Shirley Spartans – travelled

to Dunedin to compete in the

zone 4 South Island qualifying

tournament.

Our top six finish at this

tournament has allowed us to

attend the secondary schools

national tournament in

Palmerston North in October.

Our first game on day one was

against a solid Nayland College

team, and we had a good win

76-59.

Our second game of the day

was against a young Kaiapoi

High School team. Our

experience and depth led to a

one-sided 106-42 win.

Day two had us facing off

against the two strongest

teams in our pool. Coming up

against Canterbury champions

Cashmere High in the first game

of the day was always going to be

tough. The team put up a solid

fight and showed some heart

in the first half, but Cashmere

proved too strong in the second

half and the final score was 53-93

to Cashmere.

The second game of the day

against Otago Boys’ High was

do-or-die for us. If we lost we

would lose our chance to go to

nationals. Otago came out strong

at the start of the game and were

leading by nine at the end of the

first quarter. Luckily for us, over

the next three quarters we played

some of the best basketball we

had played all season.

After leading comfortably

during the last quarter, we had a

few scares as the Otago guards

hit a barrage of three-pointers,

but luckily we showed composure

and finished the game off,

eventually winning 106-99. Sean

Kelly played his best game of the

tournament and led from the

front for the entire 40min. He

scored an impressive 36 points.

He had strong support in scoring

from our trio of big bodies – Joel

Jeffrey (22pts), Josh Thomson

(14pts) and Loyal Patelesio

(10pts). This game was easily our

best of the tournament.

On day three, we finished off

the last game of pool play by

comfortably beating St Thomas’

96-56. This was another game

were everyone played good

minutes and all 11 players

contributed on the score sheet.

Our quarter-final match-up

later in the day was against

the No 1 seed from pool A –

Rangiora High. This game was

important because, if we won,

we were guaranteed a spot at

nationals. The final score was a

hard fought 77-60 win to Shirley.

Our semi-final match-up had

us playing one of the tournament

favourites in Christ’s College. The

boys came into this game with

a lot of belief and were leading

32-30 at the end of half-time.

Unfortunately, we ran out of

steam in the second half and

the big minutes played by our

key boys caught up with us. Silly

mistakes and a lot of missed

shots, combined with a lift in

intensity by Christ’s in the second

half, led to a one-sided second

half. After leading at half-time we

went down 45-70.

Our last game of the

tournament was a play-off for

third and fourth against Waimea

College.

We desperately wanted to come

third and came out strong in this

game. The boys didn’t let up the

whole game and for the third

time in the tournament, all 11

players contributed on the score

sheet.

The game turned into a

runaway win for Shirley and the

final score of 91-47 reflected this.

It was a successful tournament

for the Shirley Spartans.

Everyone involved was pleased

with our third place finish in the

South Island. Now the boys look

ahead to nationals. This will be

a great experience for the entire

team and should give them an

idea of where we are ranked

amongst the top 24 teams in the

country.

A big thank you to Nat Connell

who put a lot of time and effort

into the team over the year.

Special thanks also to Russell

Stocks, our teacher in charge

of basketball, who was team

manager and worked hard to

get us into the tournament and

cooked the team some delicious

meals. Thanks as well to all the

parents and family members

who helped out with feeding the

boys and supporting them in

Dunedin.

Wainoni club‘s young

boxers take out titles

• By Andrew King

IZYAH HESP and Daniel Meehan of the

Smiling Tigers Boxing Club won titles at

the New Zealand Boxing Championships

last week.

It was an all-Canterbury affair in the

cadet under-57kg category with Meehan,

14, squaring off against 12-year-old

Hamuera Tainui from the Woolston

Boxing Club.

Meehan won with a split decision and

said he was proud of the way he fought but

there was room for improvement.

“It was alright, it wasn’t my best fight. I

can definitely improve. It was good to get

experience and see how it is in different

areas,” he said.

Aranui’s Hesp, 12, won the cadet under-

50kg title and said it was a great step towards

his dream of an international career.

“I was happy to make my family proud.

It was a good experience,” he said.

Fighters from the Wainoni-based

Smiling Tigers Boxing Club had a solid

showing at the event, which ran from

Monday to Friday last week, with a

number of others just missing out on titles.

Sam Burdett-Clark, 29, was runner-up

in the under-64kg category, and Jarrod

Gear-Ngatai, 16, was runner-up in the

under-70kg junior category.

Wiremu Herbert, 26, lost in the semifinal

of the under-64kg category, and

Harry Waters, 24, lost in the semi-final of

the under-69kg elite category.

Canterbury Boxing Association team

manager Holly Sullivan said it was one of

the “greenest” teams they have taken to the

national championships in quite a while.

The Canterbury team were awarded the

Malcolm Treston Shield for the most wins

at the competition.

Rawiri Waaka, instructor of

military studies at Haeata, said

the eight students got involved

at the school cafe, serving food

and running the cash register

for their community engagement

section.

He said the tramping element

challenged them the most.

About 70-80km were walked by

the students.

“There’s the tangible stuff, it

goes on their CV and it shows

prospective employers that during

school life they didn’t just

take basketball or touch, they

did something more extreme

like putting a pack on your

back during adverse weather

and tramping a whole pile of

kilometres.”

RED CROSS

There are currently 18,516

young people involved in

the award activities in New

Zealand, who are assisted by

thousands of volunteers.

Marian College’s Caitlin

Fleming, year 11, who has highfunctioning

down syndrome,

received a silver award.

Caitlin completed a two-day

tramp in Springfield, where she

experienced river crossings and

learnt how to make food on a

gas cooker.

Community involvement

at Burwood Hospital, charity

shops and the Step Up Club,

an organisation for young

children with down syndrome,

helped Caitlin take out the

award.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

TOMATO AND MOZZARELLA

WITH CRUMBED

EGGPLANT

Ingredients

1 Eggplant, sliced into 1cm

rounds

2 Eggs, lightly whisked and

seasoned

1 cup Breadcrumbs

¼ cup Chopped fresh herbs, e.g.

parsley or chives

1 bottle Oil, enough for cooking

eggplant

2 cups Tomatoes, sliced or

chopped

2 whole Mozzarella cheese

1 cup Basil leaves

1 drizzle Lemon-infused olive

oil, to serve

Directions

Firstly crumb the eggplant. Dip

into seasoned egg, then roll into

the breadcrumbs and parsley

combined in another bowl. Set

aside in the fridge until ready to

cook.

Into a frying pan pour a little

oil. Fry the eggplant on a medium

heat to ensure they cook

right through, turning once to

brown both sides.

Onto a platter, place the eggplant,

tomatoes, torn mozzarella,

basil and salt and pepper. Drizzle

over the lemon infused olive oil

then serve.

MOZZARELLA AND PESTO

SCHNITZEL PARCELS

Ingredients

1 Salt & freshly ground pepper,

to season

8 slices Beef schnitzel

250g Mozzarella cheese, sliced

¼ cup Basil pesto

1 Tbsp Olive oil

Directions

Season schnitzel with salt

and pepper and lay on a work

surface. Arrange two slices of

mozzarella on one half of each

schnitzel and top each with a

heaped teaspoon of pesto.

Fold the empty side of each

schnitzel over to cover the filling

and secure by threading

two toothpicks through each

schnitzel parcel. Heat a non-stick

frying pan, add a film of oil and

place schnitzel parcels in the

pan. Cook over a medium heat

for 2 to 3min on each side, or

until browned on both sides and

cheese has melted.

Place an orange on a board

and use a sharp serrated knife

to cut a slice off each end. Stand

the orange on one end and cut

off all the rind and pith. Lay the

orange on its side and cut into

thin slices. Place the slices in a

shallow bowl. Repeat with the

remaining oranges, laying the

mint leaves among the orange

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

GO-Advanced

Omega-PC

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times, new

research has shown that neurons can grow

back with the right conditions and that a

special extract of Gingko Biloba (EGb-761

or TEBONIN) has been clinically found to

assist in this. The implications for stroke

recovery are obvious, but researchers also

know many of us suffer from undetected

“micro-strokes” that over a period of time

slowly reduce our cognitive function.

TEBONIN is prescribed worldwide as a

natural supportive agent for a healthy brain

and cognitive function. It supports healthy

mental performance, concentration, focus,

alertness, motor function and to help

with many conditions including tinnitus

(ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo

and normal balance. TEBONIN improves

BOOST BRAIN

PERFORMANCE UP TO 30%

TEBONIN is the No 1 Ginkgo Biloba extract in the World with more than 8 million tablets

being consumed every day. It is also the most researched herbal extract with more than 60

controlled clinical studies & over 400 scientific studies. It has been shown to have excellent

efficacy, safety & tolerability. Millions of consumers have trusted TEBONIN for over 30

years to support blood flow, capillary health, brain health & performance.

Studies on TEBONIN Show:

- Improved Brain Performance & Function up to 30%. This includes improvement

in mental sharpness, focus, attention, concentration, understanding, memory & recall.

- Reduces errors made & mental stress.

- The only Ginkgo shown to increase activity in all areas of the brain. Can help restore

brain function after a brain injury such as from a stroke.

- Helps relieve tinnitus (ringing & noise in the ears), vertigo, dizziness & supports normal

balance.

- Improves blood flow to all areas of the body.

- Reduces plaque formation in the blood vessels.

- Protective effect against eyes damage caused by light.

micro-circulation and helps the blood flow

reach those critical places it needs to get to.

It is a potent anti-oxidant and makes the

red blood cells more pliable and capillary

walls more flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented multistep

extraction process. Each small tablet

contains a highly concentrated 50:1 extract

to give you a therapeutic clinical dose

without having to take a large amount of

the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba products on

the market, and tested by a major medical

journal, only TEBONIN passed all five of the

test requirements. Ten brands didn’t meet

any requirements and the rest didn’t pass

more than three out of five requirements.

TEBONIN is the only Gingko biloba

extract shown to activate all areas of the

brain and is considered the gold standard

in Gingko. TEBONIN has been trusted by

millions of consumers worldwide for over

30 years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

ONLY GO OMEGA-PC retains the natural Phospholipids that have been shown to be so beneficial for Good

Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL!

Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally

contain Omega-3 in a triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process. GO OMEGA-PC is produced using a new more natural cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. Studies show GO OMEGA-PC offers superior absorption with

increased omega-3 fatty acids in organs giving the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC OFFERS:

• Superior absorption of vital Omega-3, as

shown in research

• Advanced new cold extraction better

It is well known how important omega-3

fatty acids are to good health. It is estimated

most people don’t even get a third of the

recommended omega-3 fatty acids on

a weekly basis. Countries with a higher

amounts of omega-3 in their diet are known

to have lower cardiovascular disease and, in

many cases, better overall health.

only contained omega-3 fatty acids in

triglyceride form. Fish, however, naturally

contain omega-3 in triglyceride and

phospholipid form but until recently the

phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC sets new

standards in fish oil as it contains

omega-3 attached to both triglycerides

and phospholipids. Studies have shown

GO-Advanced Omega-PC to be far better

absorbed, leading to increased levels of

vital omega-3 fatty acids in the organs

through giving the potential for more

health benefits.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC is produced

from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish

using a new advanced and more natural

cold extraction process that better preserves

the natural nutrient profile found in fish. It

is manufactured to high GMP standards

and is molecularly distilled to remove any

containments, toxins and heavy metals.

Further info on this revolutionary new

fish oil and its benefits is available from

the Natural Health Advisers, Naturopath

and Medical Herbalist at Marshall’s

Health & Natural Therapy in New

Brighton, phone 388 5757. We are always

happy to help!

KIDSTUFF

Lindisfarne Nursery School

Lindisfarne Nursery School was

established by Tricia Cuthbert in 1987 and

remains part of the Cuthbert family today.

We are committed to Christchurch, to our

community, our Lindisfarne families, and

most importantly the futures

and happiness of our children.

We believe in developing

children’s feelings of self-worth,

and encouraging tolerance and

understanding of others.

Our teachers all hold a

Diploma of Teaching in Early

Childhood, and one holds a

Diploma of Teaching in Primary

as well as early childhood. She

prepares the four year olds for

school through an informal

and brief daily ‘lesson’ time

which the children love to take

part in.

We have a separate nursery

with an outdoor area where the

children discover and explore.

We are a strong multi-cultural

centre with committed teachers

who embrace and celebrate

diversity for our families.

Morning and afternoon tea and a cooked

lunch are provided, and we welcome

visitors.

Check us out at www.lindisfarnenursery.

Kids love CASPA!

A child who’s ‘a

little different’

Children who are just ‘a little different’ – perhaps they’re

clumsy, have difficulty writing or tying shoelaces, or

prone to ‘meltdowns’, and struggle to fit in.

To interpret and function in the world

we need to accurately process information

from our environment.

Some children’s nervous systems

may receive, sort and use information

inaccurately (sensory processing) causing

them to either under or over reaction to

a sensation, or actively seek or avoid a

sensation.

This may cause distress for the

child, family and teachers,

as coping with everyday

experiences like

noisy classrooms,

the feel of fabric,

or moving in a

coordinated way

may present huge

challenges. It can

influence behaviour

and interfere with

learning, doing

everyday activities or

simply fitting in.

No child is the

same, each have

their own individual

difficulties.

Therapy Professionals Therapists

may be able to help improve the life

of these children and those around

them. Contact us at 3775280 or

www.therapyprofessionals.co.nz.

CASPA (Creative After School

Programmed Activities) incorporating

PAPA JACKS offers children the

opportunity to be creative, make new

friends and try new experiences all within a

safe, nurturing environment. CASPA offers

working parents an affordable after school

and school holiday programme that their

kids just love!

CASPA attributes its success to the

variety of activities on offer as well as the

convenience and affordability for parents.

CASPA kids enjoy an exciting range of

activities including sports, music, games,

drama, arts and craft as well as fun trips.

Previous themes and activities have included

a Karaoke Dance Party, CASPA Fear Factor,

Healthy Art, Out of Africa and hundreds of

other amazing themes/activities!

CASPA parents enjoy peace of mind,

knowing their kids are safe and enjoying

the benefits of a quality after school

programme. Some parents and caregivers

also enjoy government subsidies for

CASPA. CASPA is Child Youth and Family

approved for the OSCAR Subsidy and in

some circumstances, the full CASPA fee

will be covered by the subsidy.

REAL ESTATE

Ready to Move!

15 Caleb Place, Northwood

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 toilets | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number PI48339

The call to be closer to family is very

strong. Be quick to view this immaculate

and appealing modern 211.95m 2 home,

built in 2005. It has been carefully

maintained to offer a relaxed lifestyle in

a superb location. Situated in a quiet, noexit

street, across the road from walking

trails in leafy Styx Mill Reserve, a close

walk to supermarket and shops, and a

short drive to Northlands or the CBD.

Manicured gardens and timeless

brick construction offer an elegant

first impression and a skylight over

the entrance creates a light and bright

welcome. A northwest aspect ensures

the open-plan living and dining is sunny

and warm, and French doors opening to

decking on two sides make the most of

the magical outdoor living. A breakfast

bar separates a well-appointed kitchen,

which boasts a double wall oven, two

dish-drawers and gas cooktop. The

separate lounge adds further flexibility,

and is an elegant and tranquil space with

leafy views through the feature windows

and a gas fire for cosy ambience. Light and

inviting, the master bedroom includes an

ensuite, while two more double bedrooms

and an office (or 4th bedroom) share a

family bathroom. A double internalaccess

garage is a practical plus, while

the fully fenced and landscaped gardens

include irrigation and a choice of outdoor

living.

Beautifully presented and loaded with

extras, including solar water heating

(with gas boost) and attic storage in the

ceiling, it’s clear that this is a much-loved

home, but the vendor is determined to

move closer to family and has committed

to selling.

Daughter of Gloriavale

My Life in a Religious Cult

By Lilia Tarawa

This personal account, Lilia Tarawa exposes the shocking

secrets of the cult, with its rigid rules and oppressive

control of women. She describes her fear when her

family questioned Gloriavale’s beliefs and practices.

When her parents fled with their children, Lilia was forced

to make a desperate choice: to stay or to leave. No

matter what she chose, she would lose people she

loved. In the outside world, Lilia struggled. Would she

be damned to hell for leaving? How would she learn

to navigate this strange place called ‘the world’? And

would she ever find out the truth about the criminal

convictions against her grandfather.

What Am I Supposed

To Eat?

By Libby Weaver

For so many people today, food is complicated.

They’re told to make `healthy’ choices yet this could

include anything from an apple to a packet of

sugar-free biscuits. They have lost touch with how

much to eat, how often and how their food choices

are impacting on their health - and then there are

those all-consuming moments when they feel like

no amount of food could satisfy their hungry hearts.

The latest book by ten times number one best-selling

author Dr Libby Weaver, What am I Supposed to Eat?,

puts the reader back in control of their food choices.

Sweet

By yotam Ottolenghi

There’s nothing like a perfectly light sponge

flavoured with spices and citrus or an icing-sugardusted

cookie to raise the spirits and create a

moment of pure joy.’ In his stunning new baking

and desserts cookbook Yotam Ottolenghi and

his long-time collaborator Helen Goh bring the

Ottolenghi... read more hallmarks of fresh, evocative

ingredients, exotic spices and complex flavourings.

Sweet includes over 110 innovative recipes. There is

something here to delight everyone - from simple

recipes parents can make with their children to

showstopping layer cakes and roulades that will

reignite the imaginations of accomplished bakers.

Meet the Team

Paul Perry - Owner

Paul has a very extensive 42 years’ experience in the Collision

Repair Industry. In 1975 Paul completed his apprenticeship

with “Farmers” (whom were later bought out by Blackwells).

Paul continued to work for Blackwells until 2007 when he

decided to find something more challenging for himself. In

2007 Paul broadened his abilities and began working for

Truck Worx doing structural repairs on Commercial Trucks

until he decided to find work closer to home.

Paul was employed by Terry Stevenson Collision Repairs at

the end of 2007, which he then went on to purchase with his

wife Shanel in 2016, which is when QEII Collision Repairs Ltd

was established. During this time, Paul has acquired his I-Car

Recognition Silver Certificate in 2017.

Gary De Pina

Gary is the go-to-guy when it comes to anything involving the

Collision Repair Industry after 34 years in the trade. Gary completed

his apprenticeship as a refinisher/painter at Motor Inn Panel Beaters

(which Hammonds then bought out in 1990) in 1987 before moving

on to Nui Ngakau in 2002 as a tutor, training students for the

Collision Repair Industry, for 18 months. In late 2003 Gary took up

the role of Shop Manager at New Brighton Panel Beaters for 8 years

but due to the 2011 February Earthquakes this business ceased

trading. Gary then took up the role as estimator for Terry Stevenson

Panel Beaters for a period before moving on to Ferrymead Panel

and Paint as estimator, as well. As of 2016, Gary returned to QEII

Collision Repairs Ltd (previously Terry Stevenson Panel Beaters) as

Manager and has since achieved his Platinum Certificate.

Victoria Tiopira

Victoria was employed by Terry Stevenson Panel Beaters when she was 14

in 2011, while she was still at school during the holidays, as a car detailer

& shop labourer. Spring of 2012 Victoria moved to Hokitika and went

on to work at the Hokitika Glass Studio when she decided to add a little

adventure to her life while she was still young. In 2013 Victoria decided to

return to Christchurch to make NCEA her main priority alongside working at

McDonalds Part-Time. Victoria completed NCEA Level 1, 2 & 3 by 2015 and

decided to leave school early and continue working at McDonalds Fulltime.

Victoria had a gorgeous little boy in 2016 and decided shift work didn’t suit

her family anymore and went on to work as a telemarketing representative

for a few months. Telemarketing wasn’t what she enjoyed so she left and

returned to QEII Collision Repairs Ltd (previously Terry Stevenson Panel

Beaters) as a Car Detailer & Shop Labourer and eventually was promoted

into the role of Financial Administrator at the beginning of 2017.

Shanel Tiopira - Owner

Shanel has worked behind the scenes of the Collision Repair Industry for 14 years as a Business

Administrator and the past year as Administrator/Business Owner of QEII Collision Repairs Ltd. In

1988 Shanel began working for Kmart Hastings in the Retail service sector before acquiring her

Diploma of Business & Management in 1990 and moving to Christchurch to continue working at

Kmart Riccarton as a Trainee Manager. By 1992 Shanel had been promoted to Manager at Kmart

Riccarton, Papatoeoe, The Palms Shirley stores and again Riccarton when she decided that she

wanted a change out of the retail scene. In 2001 Shanel moved on to iDispatch where she became

supervisor in Communications. (This was the same year she also met her husband Paul Perry who is

currently also her Business Partner at QEII Collision Repairs Ltd.) In 2003 Shanel went to visit Hubby

at work (Terry Stevenson Panel Beaters) for lunch and she hasn’t left the Collision Repair Industry

since. After working 2 jobs for a year she decided she wanted to continue working in the Collision

Repair Industry and stepped back from iDispatch in 2004. When the opportunity arose to purchase

the business, Shanel & Paul took the opportunity and established QEII Collision Repairs Ltd in 2016.

QEII Collision Repairs

QEII Collision Repairs Limited was established in June 2016 by Shanel Tiopira and Paul

Perry after taking over a previously established Collision Repair Shop. QEII Collision Repairs

Ltd are active members of the Collision Repair Association (CRA) as well as the Motor Trade

Association (MTA) and are respected, approved repairers to various Insurance Companies

including but not limited to IAG, Tower, AMI, Lumley, NZI, NAC, State and Lantern

Insurance. To retain a contract as an approved repairer with Insurance companies, requires

the business to maintain a certain amount of training through approved training agencies

for all staff. Thanks to I-Car as well as MTA, QEII Collision Repairs Ltd has successfully

assisted two employees reach a goal of a Silver Certificate and Platinum Certificate over the

past year. We would like to acknowledge RJP Panel & Paint Supplies, Kaiapoi for supplying

all the paint that went into designing, refurbishing, and creating our fleet of “cool soda”-blue

courtesy cars. Alongside RJP, we would also like to thank Paul and his team at SignBiz

for all our courtesy vehicle signage as well as our customised building signage. Finally, we

would like to take the opportunity to thank the community for their on-going support in their

local business. Each year we give back to the community by making donations to the local

primary schools as well as the Kid’s Foundation and Children’s Hospital.

Stewart Fitzgerald

Stewart was a part of the Terry Stevenson Panel Beaters Team as of early 2014

as a Labourer/Groomer before quickly taking up the opportunity of becoming a

labourer in the Panel Shop. After a few months experience in the panel shop,

Stewart moved on to the paint shop as a labourer before deciding he wanted to

start his own business. Although Stewart no longer works in the Collision Repair

Industry, he still shows his support consistently by offering his new business

venture services to us and to our customers. In 2016, Stewart established his

own Vehicle Towing Business ‘Christchurch Towing Services’ which we use

when customers vehicles are not drivable and this includes Insurance work

as well. Early 2017, QEII Collision Repairs Ltd sponsored Stewart to enter a

demolition derby using one of our retired courtesy vehicles and to our utmost

joy, Stewart won! We couldn’t be prouder of how far Stewart has come today

and we thank the support we continue to receive from him and his business.
