consultation<br />

A pleasant evening<br />

Pleasant Point Yacht Club life member Bob Scott, 97, got his<br />

hands on the America’s Cup with Team New Zealand crewman<br />

Joe Sullivan during an event on Saturday night to raise money<br />

for the club’s rebuild. •Story, pg 3<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

RESIDENTS LIVING near QE II<br />

Park are unhappy with the public<br />

consultation over the approved<br />

new lease for the Christchurch<br />

School of Gymnastics.<br />

Thirteen people signed a letter<br />

sent to the Coastal-Burwood<br />

Community Board saying residents’<br />

views were not given due<br />

consideration.<br />

The community board made<br />

a recommendation to the city<br />

council to approve the proposed<br />

lease for the new site on the Ascot<br />

Ave side of QE II Park on September<br />

18. The city council granted<br />

the lease on September 28.<br />

A comment from the community<br />

board in a report to the<br />

city council acknowledged that a<br />

leaflet informing residents of the<br />

final decision of where the school<br />

would be rebuilt should have<br />

been sent out earlier.<br />

Before the community board’s<br />

recommendation, the city council<br />

delivered leaflets to properties<br />

on surrounding streets about the<br />

proposed lease. It offered residents<br />

the opportunity to submit<br />

feedback.<br />

But residents say the map on<br />

the leaflet caused confusion over<br />

where the site would be because it<br />

wasn’t clear enough.<br />

Coastal-Burwood Ward councillor<br />

David East agreed there<br />

were “some anomalies” with the<br />

map which may have been interpreted<br />

in different ways.<br />

He suggested at an onsite meeting<br />

there needed to be a more<br />

widespread leaflet drop to clear<br />

up confusion and give more residents<br />

an opportunity to submit<br />

their feedback.<br />

FROM<br />

THE<br />

EDITOR’S<br />

DESK<br />

IT WAS a great night at the<br />

Pleasant Point Yacht Club on<br />

Saturday as fundraising continues<br />

to build new clubrooms (see page<br />

3).<br />

And it was a special moment for<br />

97-year-old Bob Scott, who has<br />

been a member at the club since<br />

1936.<br />

Bob met some of the winning<br />

Team New Zealand crew who<br />

turned up for the fundraiser and<br />

I’m sure that most have been a<br />

terrific moment.<br />

The club has done a fantastic<br />

job getting Team NZ on board<br />

so congratulations for all those<br />

behind it.<br />

Between $20-25,000 was raised<br />

(final total still to be counted).<br />

Residents near the eastern side<br />

of QE II aren’t overly happy about<br />

the relocation of the school of<br />

gymnastics and are angry over<br />

the way they have been consulted<br />

(see page 1).<br />

Team NZ boosts rebuild fund<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

ABOUT $25,000 was raised for<br />

the rebuild of Pleasant Point<br />

Yacht Club on Saturday night.<br />

The event called An Evening<br />

with Emirates Team New Zealand<br />

ran smoothly, said Pleasant<br />

Point Yacht Club spokesman<br />

Nigel Humphreys. The club rebuild<br />

is planned for South New<br />

Brighton Park.<br />

Life member of the club, Bob<br />

Scott, 97, was given to a lot of<br />

attention by Team New Zealand<br />

member Joe Sullivan. The formerly<br />

“very competitive” yachtie<br />

joined the club in 1936 and is the<br />

oldest living member.<br />

He was club commodore in<br />

the 1950s and club captain for<br />

many years.<br />

Mr Scott’s daughter, Carol<br />

Scott, said they had a fantastic<br />

evening and her father particularly<br />

enjoyed the team’s presentation<br />

which included footage on<br />

the water.<br />

Ms Scott said Mr Sullivan<br />

made a fuss of her father. The<br />

two men have mutual friends<br />

including New Zealand sailor<br />

and broadcaster Peter Lester’s<br />

father, who Mr Scott went to<br />

school with.<br />

Mr Sullivan organised members<br />

of the Team New Zealand<br />

PRESENTATION: Pleasant Point Yacht Club commodore<br />

Alastair Burgess addressing the audience of more than 400<br />

people with the members of Emirates Team New Zealand<br />

on stage.<br />

to sign a plaque commemorating<br />

Canterbury’s only challenge<br />

in the Little America’s Cup<br />

challenge in the 1974, which<br />

Mr Scott brought along on the<br />

night. The Little Americas Cup,<br />

now known as the International<br />

Catamaran Challenge Trophy,<br />

is a race between C class catamarans.<br />

More than 400 people attended<br />

on Saturday night. A<br />

pre-event gathering took place at<br />

6pm with VIP guests and sponsors<br />

given the opportunity to<br />

meet Team New Zealand members<br />

before the main event began<br />

at 7pm. Guests were treated to a<br />

presentation on the big screen by<br />

Team New Zealand members.<br />

The presentation showed the<br />

team’s background, philosophy,<br />

future goals and other specifics<br />

like how they stay focussed and<br />

deal with challenging events.<br />

Several prizes were auctioned<br />

including a helicopter ride to a<br />

mystery destination piloted by<br />

Richie McCaw, a horsepower<br />

experience in a dual sulky<br />

behind Monkey King, New<br />

Zealand’s top-earning harness<br />

racer, a hot lap around Mike<br />

Pero Motorsport Park, Ruapuna,<br />

and a signed framed Emirates<br />

Team New Zealand shirt.<br />

Proceeds from the auction<br />

totalled more than $<strong>17</strong>,000. The<br />

vintage 1995 Team New Zealand<br />

shirt is still up for auction on<br />

Galabid until the end of the<br />

month.<br />

A wide range of people<br />

attending the event including<br />

die-hard yacties, members of the<br />

public and a lot of families, said<br />

Mr Humphreys.<br />

Team New Zealand members<br />

took the opportunity to get<br />

to know those who attended,<br />

coming down on to the floor<br />

and mingling with guests and<br />

getting photos with them and<br />

the cup.<br />

Team members who attended<br />

include Joseph Sullivan, Richard<br />

Meacham, Sean Regan, Chris<br />

Salthouse, Nick Hutchins,<br />

Hamish Hooper, Harry Lynsky,<br />

Norman Newton (cup security)<br />

A horn speaker was stolen from<br />

outside the Rawhiti School office<br />

CCTV footage caught the masked<br />

offenders attempting to pull down<br />

face first onto the concrete. The<br />

four alleged offenders eventually<br />

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A VET<br />

NURSE AT McMASTER & HEAP<br />

Its early morning and the HOSPITAL nurse is<br />

already hard at work, caring for her sometimes<br />

numerous & varied hospital patients who have<br />

stayed the night.<br />

She cuddles & chats away to them<br />

reassuringly as if they were her own!<br />

Some soiled patients are sponge bathed,<br />

while other patients are syringe fed. She checks,<br />

untwists and flushes IV catheters, administers<br />

morning medications, fresh food & clean<br />

bedding is lovingly placed! All observations are<br />

recorded ready for the “Vet rounds”, just as in a<br />

hospital!<br />

The Vets at McMaster & Heap rely heavily on<br />

the expertise and thoroughness of our nurses<br />

to inform us with regards to the patients in<br />

her care. The vets check over their patients,<br />

authorize blood tests or radiographs, change<br />

medication or nutrition plans and update the<br />

owners.<br />

Then its back to the hospital nurse to care<br />

for the needs of these patients over the course<br />

of the day, updating the vet, speaking to the<br />

family members involved and organizing<br />

visiting times. Excellent time management skills<br />

are required to triage the sick arrivals through<br />

the day and care for the already sick and injured.<br />

Note taking and recording of medications given<br />

is of utmost importance.<br />

Meanwhile the doors have opened & the<br />

RECEPTION nurse is cheerfully assisting the<br />

receptionist, greeting a continuous stream<br />

of pets and their owners arriving for today’s<br />

appointments & procedures!<br />

She expertly multi tasks while answering the<br />

relentlessly ringing phones-today she will take<br />

a huge number of calls with a wide variety of<br />

questions. She must use her problem solving<br />

skills to know when it is OK for a patient to<br />

come in later in the day, or if in fact it may<br />

require a much more urgent consult time.<br />

The SURGICAL nurse gets ready for her<br />

busy day ahead. Patients start arriving at 8am<br />

for admittance and some days we have 4<br />

vets operating and a list of over 15 surgical<br />

procedures to work through. Every nurse has a<br />

vet assigned to them to allow continuity of care.<br />

She will talk kindly & soothingly to each<br />

patient while efficiently placing IV catheters<br />

& obtain blood and urine samples to run<br />

diagnostic tests for the vet. She then calculates<br />

and administers her patients pre anaesthetic<br />

medications as instructed.<br />

Anaesthetic machines must then be checked<br />

& the surgical room fully equipped for the<br />

variety of today’s procedures!<br />

Once everything is ready, she will assist the<br />

vet in the patients induction and intubation,<br />

before swiftly attaching all monitoring<br />

equipment, as well as manual checks. Once<br />

happy the patient is stable, she sterile preps the<br />

patients surgical site. She closely monitors the<br />

patient through the entire procedure, alerting<br />

the vet to any subtle changes in the patients<br />

anaesthetic depth, blood pressure and more.<br />

She carefully moves the patient over to a<br />

cosy recovery bed, where the hospital nurse is<br />

waiting to continue the post operative care.<br />

Evening consults are arriving & reception is a<br />

hype of activity. Phones are ringing constantly<br />

& owners are arriving to pick up their animals<br />

from surgery & hospital.<br />

The reception nurse expertly talks to owners<br />

experiencing a wide range of emotions, from<br />

extreme sadness, stress, anxiety, to those who<br />

are excited or just plain relieved to be able to<br />

see their furry friend once more. She goes over<br />

the large variety of discharge information that<br />

the vets & nurses have carefully put aside for<br />

their patients.<br />

The hospital nurse kindly talks to worried<br />

owners who are visiting their pets and updates<br />

them on the vets plan for overnight care.<br />

She carries out her final rounds and ensures<br />

everyone gets a cuddle goodnight!<br />

She assists the vet in preparing any extremely<br />

unwell patients that require transfer to the after<br />

hours clinic.<br />

At 7pm the last consult has finished, and<br />

the doors are closed! The nurses may still<br />

be buzzing around for another hour or so,<br />

depending on today’s work load. Although<br />

sometimes they are totally exhausted (&<br />

covered in various unidentified stains & smells!)<br />

they go home to their own pets with a big<br />

smile on their face. They know each day they<br />

assist the vets in making a huge difference to<br />

animals lives by putting 100% of time, love, care<br />

& knowledge to ensure each furry patient and<br />

it’s owner has had the best veterinary service<br />

and care possible!!<br />

Readers respond to<br />

the <strong>Pegasus</strong> <strong>Post</strong><br />

article about the<br />

charitable car yard in<br />

Aranui<br />

Jo Manson-King – I<br />

believe it should benefit by<br />

giving the area, an active<br />

activities place. I mean<br />

lovely to sell cars in a low<br />

decile area and give back,<br />

but give back to what? The<br />

kids/youth of the area have<br />

nothing, so maybe a roller<br />

skating rink which could<br />

be used by many groups,<br />

an inflatable/jump world,<br />

something that brings hope<br />

to not just the young but<br />

everyone.<br />

Ron Tuuta – Great idea<br />

at least something positive<br />

in the zone, no matter<br />

what gets suggested for the<br />

area there will be lots of<br />

keyboard warriors ready to<br />

pull it down.<br />

Stefan Mortimer –<br />

Car yard is not what we<br />

need, I live here and that<br />

yard should be used to<br />

build units to house the<br />

struggling and not what<br />

city council says is affordable<br />

because $380,000 is<br />

not affordable.<br />

hope it does more good<br />

Helping kids get creative<br />

What<br />

makes the<br />

Imagination<br />

Station so<br />

popular?<br />

Managing<br />

director Sam<br />

Butcher<br />

explains<br />

Lego Education. Who would<br />

have thought the world’s biggest<br />

toy company would also become<br />

one of the biggest educational<br />

equipment providers in the<br />

world?<br />

The concept of educational toys<br />

has become commonplace in<br />

discussion among many parents.<br />

As a society, we want to<br />

ensure our children have<br />

every opportunity to grow,<br />

explore the world, and come<br />

to know that learning can in<br />

fact be a thrilling and enjoyable<br />

experience.<br />

Lego toys are tactile, creative,<br />

and come in a bright rage of<br />

colours, sizes, and shapes. The<br />

pure diversity and simplicity<br />

of Lego building bricks makes<br />

them engaging for even the most<br />

disruptive of children, building<br />

their co-ordination and problemsolving<br />

skills.<br />

But Lego Education goes<br />

further than just plastic bricks –<br />

it now includes programmable<br />

robots, solar-powered motors<br />

and all kinds of great learning<br />

equipment. Imagination Station<br />

is Christchurch’s biggest provider<br />

of Lego-based education classes.<br />

Since opening in January 2015,<br />

Imagination Station has bought<br />

almost a tonne of Lego and<br />

Duplo bricks into Christchurch<br />

for people to play with – all in<br />

the name of creative play and<br />

education. Imagination Station<br />

encourages people of all ages<br />

to be creative, and provides a<br />

diverse range of holiday activities<br />

and after school programmes to<br />

engage children.<br />

With a new additional centre<br />

open in New Brighton’s Carnaby<br />

Lane until Christmas, it’s a great<br />

opportunity to get kids building<br />

and dreaming of models much<br />

bigger than they’d be able to<br />

make at home.<br />

Until Christmas, Imagination<br />

Station New Brighton is open<br />

Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and<br />

Mondays each week – plus every<br />

day over the school holidays.<br />

All are welcome to come on<br />

down and get creative.<br />

High fashion shopping<br />

on cards for Brighton<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

NEW BRIGHTON Mall will<br />

soon be home to high class<br />

international brands such as<br />

David Jones and Armani.<br />

Australian Frank<br />

Haidar will open a<br />

designer clothes store<br />

in one month. The<br />

store, which is yet to<br />

be named, will be split<br />

between new and used<br />

clothing.<br />

Prices will range<br />

from $5 to $350 and the<br />

clothing will be for males and<br />

females of all ages.<br />

Unstoppable: My Life So Far<br />

By Maria Sharapova<br />

In the middle of the night, a father and his daughter step off a<br />

Greyhound bus in Florida and head straight to the Nick Bollettieri<br />

Tennis Academy. They ring the bell, though no one is expecting<br />

them and they don’t speak English. They have arrived from<br />

Russia with just seven hundred dollars and the conviction that<br />

this six-year-old girl will be the world’s next great tennis star.<br />

They are right.<br />

This is Maria Sharapova’s gripping and fearless autobiography,<br />

telling her story from her roots in the small Siberian town her<br />

parents fled to after the Chernobyl disaster, through her arrival<br />

in the US with nothing and her phenomenal rise to success -<br />

winning Wimbledon aged just seventeen - to the disasters that<br />

threatened her career and her fight back. Told with the same<br />

combative, no-holds-barred attitude as her game, it’s a story of<br />

crazy luck, mistakes, rivalries, sacrifice, survival and, above all,<br />

the constant, unwavering determination to win.<br />

Museum<br />

the chocolate<br />

is coming out<br />

of retirement<br />

after being<br />

popular in the<br />

1970s.<br />

Chocolate wheel returns<br />

for final spin in museum<br />

THE NEW Brighton Museum’s<br />

chocolate wheel is coming out of<br />

retirement for just one day.<br />

The chocolate wheel was a<br />

popular activity in the 1970s. It<br />

would be spun on the corner of<br />

Oram Ave and Seaview Rd on<br />

Saturdays.<br />

At the time, New Brighton had<br />

a monopoly on Saturday trading<br />

and a regular team of men from<br />

the Pier and Foreshore Society<br />

would spin the wheel to fundraise.<br />

Prizes included frozen chickens<br />

and chocolates. The museum<br />

plans to resurrect the wheel for its<br />

garage sale on Sunday.<br />

In 1977, the funds raised from<br />

spinning the wheel were used<br />

to upgrade Thomson Park. A<br />

flying fox and other playground<br />

equipment was purchased, along<br />

OLD BRIGHTON: A busy<br />

spot in the 1970s where the<br />

chocolate wheel was spun.<br />

with the playground at South<br />

The chocolate wheel prizes on<br />

Sunday will be small and mainly<br />

aimed at children, costing 50<br />

cents per spin.<br />

•The museum garage sale<br />

will take place on Sunday,<br />

11am-2pm, 8 Hardy St.<br />

•From page 1<br />

Residents then queried a<br />

number of different sites for<br />

the rebuild and the community<br />

board asked city council to<br />

consider the sites.<br />

The city council assessed several<br />

different sites. However, it<br />

determined there was only one<br />

viable option, the site which had<br />

been indicated on the original<br />

leaflets.<br />

It was then determined by<br />

city council staff that a further<br />

consultation process was not<br />

required.<br />

A letter and information<br />

leaflet summarising the options<br />

that were investigated was sent<br />

to residents. However, it was<br />

later acknowledged by the community<br />

board that this went out<br />

some time after the meetings<br />

with residents and should have<br />

been sent earlier.<br />

Many residents who were<br />

waiting for the second round<br />

of consultation did not receive<br />

this leaflet and were unaware<br />

there would not be more public<br />

consultation.<br />

Residents were then told if<br />

they had any objections to submit<br />

a deputation at the community<br />

board meeting where the<br />

lease recommendation would be<br />

made.<br />

Four residents made deputations<br />

and two noted disappointment<br />

about the lack of proper<br />

consultation, including misinformation<br />

about the process<br />

being extended.<br />

Resident Keith McKay did not<br />

believe there was enough time<br />

to allow for due consideration of<br />

the deputations.<br />

were made, a decision by<br />

the site chosen was made.<br />

We do not believe the residents<br />

deputations were given due<br />

consideration, due to the length<br />

of time it took to make the<br />

decision,” said Mr McKay in the<br />

latest letter to the community<br />

board.<br />

Objections to the proposed<br />

site include the loss of park<br />

space, over-development of QE<br />

II Park, loss of trees, cost of<br />

ground improvements, suitability<br />

of other sites and the visual<br />

Shirley Boys’ recipe book<br />

embraces sugar-free diet<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

A CLASS of Shirley Boys’ High<br />

students are passionate about<br />

combating high sugar intake.<br />

The year 13 food studies class<br />

has created a low-sugar recipe<br />

book called Life is Sweet which<br />

goes on sale today.<br />

The book aims to educate<br />

readers about ways to consume<br />

less sugar and the positive health<br />

benefits as a result.<br />

Food studies teacher Pete<br />

Beswick said he almost fell off his<br />

seat when the boys approached<br />

him about the idea for the book.<br />

“At first I was sceptical but<br />

also wanted them to be able<br />

to achieve this, so we grabbed<br />

the bull by the horns. It has<br />

increased my stress levels somewhat,<br />

but I have been so proud<br />

of the guys and what we have<br />

achieved together that the stress<br />

took a back seat,” he said.<br />

The book was created as part<br />

of an assessment involving an<br />

investigation into a nutritional<br />

issue affecting the well-being of<br />

New Zealanders.<br />

Every recipe was trialled and<br />

adjusted over five weeks by the<br />

class.<br />

A $6000 loan from the PTA<br />

was used to create the book,<br />

along with advertising sold to<br />

AUTHORS: The year 13 food studies class created the book<br />

Proceeds will be split between<br />

a donation to Christchurch<br />

coincided with the International<br />

Day of Older Persons.<br />

Te Whare Roimata co-ordinator<br />

Jenny Smith said the day<br />

came about following cut backs<br />

to home help some years ago.<br />

“We were aware that a number<br />

of older people in the inner city<br />

and eastern neighbourhoods<br />

struggled to get things done in<br />

their homes, and so this was<br />

a neighbourhood response we<br />

could offer them,” said Ms Smith.<br />

“It was just lovely to have the<br />

children involved and learn<br />

about not only being of service<br />

but also how we can support<br />

older people.”<br />

Waitakiri School spokeswoman<br />

Kim Hillson said the pupils<br />

were very enthusiastic about<br />

helping elderly residents.<br />

Community Sport and Recreation<br />

Inc from the discretionary<br />

response fund.<br />

The pool will be open seven<br />

last summer.<br />

The pool is set to open from<br />

December 16 to January 28.<br />

and has continued every summer<br />

since.<br />

Physical Sense supports senior well-being<br />

Eight yEars ago, the Physical sense<br />

gym and Physio in sydenham, created a<br />

program to help stroke survivors. Their<br />

specialised exercise program is based<br />

on the work of the Burwood stroke<br />

rehabilitation team.<br />

Participants were so happy with the<br />

classes and the benefits they experienced<br />

that it has now grown to four classes<br />

each week. New classes have also been<br />

added to be effective for those who have<br />

suffered from Osteoporosis, intermittent<br />

Claudication, and Diabetes. On top of<br />

that they also run four weekly classes<br />

for seniors. These weekly rehabilitation<br />

and injury prevention classes can lead to<br />

continued gym membership at a reduced<br />

cost. Participants may also be eligible for<br />

a WiNZ subsidy to pay for the continued<br />

gym membership.<br />

Join one of the classes and increase<br />

your strength and mobility or just come<br />

in to find out more about what assistance<br />

is available for you.<br />

it all starts with a free assessment<br />

on Monday at 11.30 am where an<br />

experienced physiotherapist will assess<br />

your situation and advise you on the most<br />

appropriate exercise group with the aim to<br />

enable you to keep living as independently<br />

as possible.<br />

Life can get tougher as we get older,<br />

and it’s often easy to think that we should<br />

simply struggle on. yet a huge range of<br />

services are available to make life easier.<br />

Because these services are sometimes<br />

difficult to find, a new non-profit Centre<br />

for senior Wellbeing has been established.<br />

here you can get all the information<br />

needed to make sure that you (or your<br />

Join the classes at Physical Sense<br />

parents) can keep on living independently.<br />

where the staff are happy to connect you<br />

to the services you need to; -prevent<br />

falling, -make adjustments to home and<br />

surroundings, -reduce pain, -stay mobile,<br />

care for your feet.<br />

Problems with feet is a real issue for<br />

many older people with limited flexibility.<br />

The Centre offers in-home footcare for<br />

a reasonable fee. additionally, there are<br />

services provided by dieticians to help<br />

with weight gain or loss, nutrition and<br />

shopping. also occupational therapists<br />

who help maintain independence, safety<br />

in the home, and practical strategies for<br />

coping with issues like memory loss and<br />

pain. speech and language therapists<br />

mobile, reduce pain and increase wellness.<br />

Choosing the right heat<br />

pump for your home<br />

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,<br />

most homes include at least one heat pump,<br />

if not a whole heating solution. They can<br />

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more<br />

convenient than a log burner as you just need<br />

to press a button. But how do you decide<br />

what is best? Choosing the right sized heat<br />

pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort<br />

levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore<br />

important to get professional advice from heat<br />

pump experts.<br />

The range varies from wall mounted high<br />

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,<br />

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted<br />

central heating systems allowing you to have a<br />

very discreet way of heating your whole home<br />

to a constant temperature throughout.<br />

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that<br />

is suitable for the size of the space you wish<br />

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to<br />

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area<br />

taken into consideration but also, insulation,<br />

building orientation, windows and ceiling<br />

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps<br />

available with different heating outputs so it<br />

is important to select the correct size for your<br />

requirements that will handle the job but not<br />

be unnecessarily overpowered.<br />

Secondly, the location of your heat pump<br />

is also extremely important. The cheapest<br />

installation is a back to back where the outdoor<br />

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor<br />

unit however this is not necessarily always<br />

the best option. It is vital that the indoor<br />

unit is positioned in a place that will not be<br />

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is<br />

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people<br />

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly<br />

in their outdoor entertaining area or right<br />

outside their bedroom window.<br />

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands<br />

have come and gone over the years but there<br />

are a number of manufacturers who provide<br />

reputable and reliable products. All brands<br />

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of<br />

systems and price, so it depends on your<br />

application as to which will be most suitable.<br />

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,<br />

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are<br />

all reliable brands backed up by good technical<br />

after sales service.<br />

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an<br />

accredited installer. This will not only ensure<br />

correct installation of your heat pump, but<br />

also validate the manufacturers warranty.<br />

Other things to consider when choosing a<br />

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the<br />

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi<br />

capabilities.<br />

Heating is a major investment in your home<br />

and it is vital to get the right advice.<br />

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,<br />

installation and servicing of all major brands<br />

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers<br />

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as<br />

to which system will suit your application<br />

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no<br />
