Surfers, skateboarders and

musicians will be among the

people interviewed for the

documentary, which Mr Gibson

hopes will be finished by the end

of summer.

The idea came about when

talking about New Brighton with

friends, joking that they could

write a book about all the stories

they have. “Then, one day, I was

just sitting around going through

Netflix documentaries and

thought hang on a minute, I’ve

got a camera and I know how to

use it. The idea just came to me.”

The film will be interviewbased.

Team to

look at

coastal

problems

• By Sophie Cornish

SOUTH NEW Brighton and

Southshore residents will have

the opportunity to create an

engagement plan for their areas.

The plan will then go to

Regenerate Christchurch which

will then use it to consult the

community on issues like the red

zone, coastal hazards and climate

change.

Called the How Team, it will be

made up of about eight residents.

An application process is under

way. Regenerate, the city council

and Environment Canterbury will

also be represented.

About 2000 households from

Rodney St south to the end of

Rockinghorse Rd are the focus of

the study.

Said team convener Rachel

Puentener: “It is difficult to know

how to have a conversation with

all of these people about something

as complex as the impacts of

climate change.”

Ms Puentener lives in South

New Brighton and works parttime

for Renew Brighton and

Environment Canterbury.

Renew Brighton is a community

development organisation and

charitable trust which was formed

following the earthquakes with

the aim of connecting various

groups.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

I’M LOOKING forward to the

doco Todd Gibson is doing on

Brighton in the 80s and 90s (see

page 1).

McCormacks and the Esplanade

(Espie) across the road were top of

the list.

You could cruise the streets

from New Brighton to South

Brighton and never be short of

finding a party, and you’d never be

turned away . . . most of the time

anyway.

There were the burger bars in

Seaview Rd and down a bit further

on Hardy St that were patronised

on a regular basis.

A cheese, bacon and pineapple

burger and a piece of fish, or a

toasted sandwich, depending on

how much money you had left in

your pocket. Scoop of chips? Not

normally – there’d be too many of

your mates who would want to eat

them for you.

Great memories!

Students create housing concepts

• By Sophie Cornish

ARA INSTITUTE of

Canterbury students are

investigating the idea of

co-housing villages in New

Brighton.

The plot of land in question

is on the corner

of Beresford and

Mafeking Sts and is

currently a public

car park.

Co-housing

Irene

started in Denmark

in 1960, with the

idea that ‘it takes

Boles

100 parents to raise a child’.

It is community-based and

sees people share tasks, such as

childcare, gardening, cleaning,

communal dining and food

production.

The idea is based around living

sustainability and gives emphasis

to open, shared spaces,

including vegetable gardens,

bike sharing, tool sheds, children’s

areas and gardens.

Engineering and architectural

studies tutor Irene Boles said

the students hope their concepts

will inspire the community and

suggest possible scenarios for

affordable, quality housing.

The students investigated different

housing solutions starting

from only 45 sq m of space,

which can adapt and grow with

the needs of a family.

The focus is on environmentally-friendly

medium density

villages and all houses would be

elevated to meet flood management

requirements.

The land is currently owned

by Development Christchurch

Ltd, a city council entity set up

following the earthquakes.

DCL is not associated with

the students’ project, but is

looking at the possibility of

transforming the area into affordable

housing in the future.

Ms Boles says a development

like this would thrive and expand

quickly due to the diverse

and inclusive community in

New Brighton.

Suitable materials for coastal

conditions were also used it

the designs, which age well and

don’t require chemical treatments.

The project is part of a course

called ‘Design for Social Sustainability’

for a Bachelor of

MAIN GREEN:

A concept

for the main

green area by

Ara students,

Nicholas

Besuyen,

Faridun

Joya and Iris

Nguyen.

Architectural Studies degree at

Ara. Ms Boles got the idea for

the project after meeting with

members of the New Brighton

Sustainable Coastal Village

Project.

The project was founded in

2013 and has been pushing

for the idea on the plot of land

since.

Ms Boles hopes her students’

research and proposals will

inspire more people join the

group and help the project go

ahead.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF VET

MICHELE

Last month, our super vet nurse Megan wrote

about what a nurses day is like at our clinic so I

thought I’d give you a little insight into one of

my marathon 12 hour Tuesdays, that must start

with a flat white!

I typically arrive in after 9am due to organizing

our teenage lads for school in the morning and

walking Lola before our big 12 hour Tuesday.

I will then assess, liase with the hospital nurse

and devise a plan for any of my sick hospital

patients from the previous day. Sometimes I

will pass an intensive care patient of mine onto

Catherine if my day is full surgically. If there

is time before consulting I will phone clients

with patient updates or call them in the early

afternoon when I’ve finished consulting.

Typically I consult seeing patients for 3-4

hours in the morning and then again another 3

hours during the evening. By the time Tuesdays

rock around my consulting schedule is almost

full so when distressed clients phone with a very

sick pet, obviously we will see them but they

have to be squeezed into an already full block of

consulting. If on arrival they are in urgent need

of attention, either I will see them or one of our

expert nurses will triage the patient, often take

bloods, place a catheter and advise me of their

findings. Every patient that rings is seen that

day and often we see patients from other clinics

because they cant be seen that day at their own

Practice.

It is common place that during my morning

consults I have admitted sick patients for either

blood testing, intravenous fluids, xrays or

ultrasounds, dentistry, exploratory surgeries, or

just observation. I will check on these patients

progress, review any blood test results or

findings, ring their owners if necessary and work

out a treatment plan with the hospital nurse for

that day.

Once the sickies are dealt with, I turn my

attention to the surgical board in which all my

surgeries are highlighted in green pen!

This past Tuesday was a little insane...

Heres my list for that day-

1. Right Stifle surgery in a sweet 1 year old

Golden Retriever called “Bonnie” to repair

ruptured ACL ligaments. Bonnie blew her ACL

ligaments in both stifles while out exercising

with other dogs, so the left is yet to be repaired

in 2 weeks depending on how she’s coping after

this surgery.

2. A right femoral pinning

and wiring in a young

cat “Simba” to repair a

fractured femur probably

caused by a collision with

a car.

3. Full shoulder and

elbow, spinal, lumbar

and hip xrays in Murphy,

a 12 year old chocolate

Labrador with an

annoying persistent right

foreleg lameness.

4. A sick, lethargic Chinchilla called Pickles who

needed syringe feeding through the day.

5. A Caesarian in a 2 year old Pug called

“Geraldine”, who gave birth to 1 live puppy, with

2 unfortunately dying.

All in all I have absolutely no time to eat, drink

or get into any trouble!! All the above need to be

finished with and owners rung by 4pm when I

start all over again with consults.

Oh I forgot to mention that somewhere in the

day I have

a board

full of

messages

to call

clients

regarding

their pets

blood or

pathology

results,

medications requirements, booking in surgeries,

queries from other vets or just general advice

inquiries.

We also look after sick animals for the SPCA

and Cats Protection league. We will get a call

alerting us to how far away they are and what

sort of patient we are seeing, whether a medical

or surgical case. That can happen anytime in

our day so we fit these consultations around

everything else. I feel very good being able to

help these less fortunate animals and hopefully

give them a chance at recovery and a great life.

A day in MY LIFE is a hugely busy, fast paced

one where I need to make so many important

decisions in a day on the health and well being

of the patients in my care. There is no time to

second guess yourself, communication between

my staff and my clients is key and I need to

be very organized and able to prioritise all the

patients in my care needing my help. We are so

fortunate at McMaster & Heap to have such a

highly skilled, clever and practical group of vets

and nurses to be able to bounce ideas off when

a difficult case needs a plan.

Honestly I LOVE my job – actually it’s a

priviledge to be able to help animals in the way

we can and do. As you can see, every day is

extremely different, very challenging at times

with difficult medical cases or surgeries but the

buck stops with

me so to speak.

I leave after my

12 hour shift very

tired and hungry!

But with a big

smile on my face

knowing that I’ve

made a difference

in many animals

lives that day

and so have my

fabulous team.

Village may get liquor ban

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

Constable Conal Ross who

patrols the Linwood area said the

incidents of anti-social behaviour

from drinking and smoking

synthetic drugs are becoming

more “frequent.”

From business owners, workers

and shoppers feeling unsafe and

no longer shopping at all – Constable

Ross said the behaviour

is taking its toll and with police

only able to issue tickets to those

using drugs, its not enough.

A local shop owner, who did

not want to be named, said a ban

would stop profits diving.

It has been a long standing issue

for three or four years.

“It’s also just the hanging

outside . . . we’ve had customers

ringing up and say we love your

shop but we’re not coming in

anymore,” he said.

Drinking is “definitely” putting

shoppers off, according to

supermarket owner Choy Ming

Lee.

“We call the police but they say

they can’t do anything,” he said.

A liquor ban will give police the

power to finally do something,

Mr Lee said.

City councillor Deon Swiggs

said this had been an issue on his

radar since he was first elected

more than a year ago.

“We’ve been trying to deal with

it without control . . . it just hasn’t

worked,” he said.

Cr Swiggs said the synthetics

are the main issue but stopping

people drinking on the street is

a start.

“We don’t want to put more

pressure on police resources, but

they’re [police] are there every

day . . . we’ve got to try.”

A police spokeswoman said

there has been anti-social behaviour

in the area for a long time.

“Police believe alcohol is one

of a number of factors at play. A

liquor ban has been suggested

as one way of reducing alcoholrelated

harm in the area,” she

said. As the matter is now with

the city council, she said it would

HUNTER

not be appropriate for police to

comment further.

But Mr Wallace has a different

opinion. He doesn’t drink

himself but he knows those who

do and said the problem is much

more complicated than simply

banning booze.

He said giving people with

criminal convictions more convictions

will only make it harder

for them to get jobs. It’s just moving

the problem elsewhere, not

solving anything.

“We all make mistakes. We

all want a job. But its the background

. . . there are a lot of reasons

that turn guys to the bottle

or the can to cope,” he said.

Mr Hauwai said most of the

beggars, don’t want to be there

either. “It’s a pride thing. It’s

degrading.”

The pair are working with the

city council to set up a drop-in

centre for the area.

Mr Wallace said it would give

streeties an opportunity to have

access to education, work skills

and even simple things like fixing

their bicycles.

“That’ll get rid of us. It’ll give

us somewhere to go,” Mr Wallace

said. “We don’t need a liquor ban.

What we need is a second chance

and a lot of hope.”

But Mr Wallace and Mr

Hauwai said they do understand

where the shops are coming

from. “But why arrest a person

because they are drinking. I understand

if he’s fighting or hitting

someone but not just drinking,”

Mr Wallace said.

The liquor ban will go before

the city council at a meeting in

the coming months.

The engineering team of 14

pupils, including teachers Dave

Sutherland and Bex Osborn, were

second equal in the junior section

of the 2017 Transpower Neighbourhood

Engineers Awards.

They will be presented with a

cheque of $1500 which will go

towards new STEM (science,

technology, engineering and

maths) equipment for the school

to build up their resources in this

area.

Mr Sutherland said it was the

first time the school had entered

the nationwide competition and

year 5-8 pupils who had shown

an interest and ability in engineering

were chosen.

“We try to look for authentic

learning experiences for our

pupils, so some real life problemsolving

is ideal,” said Mr Sutherland.

Pupils worked with an engineer

who was assigned by the

awards programme to identify a

problem in the community and

work to find a resolution.

The pupils noted that during

school time, their scooters were

left out uncovered by the elements

and proposed the idea of a

Health Demands 'Inglewood' Sold!

100 Threlkelds Road, Ohoka

5 Bedrooms | 1 Study | 2 Bathrooms | 2 Living | 1 Dining | 2 Car Garage | Off Street Parking | Property ID: PLS2326

Lovingly built in 1867, the soul of

"Inglewood" has endured over time -

and with the glorious grounds, modern

enhancements throughout, additional

dwelling, outbuildings and facilities -

this property is unequivocally a one of a

kind. Due to health reasons our reluctant

owners must now sell.

Featured in numerous home publications,

and with the Queen Mother herself having

visited twice, this property is a tremendous

piece of country heritage. Entertainers

will adore the ample living spaces, high

ceilings and native timbers throughout, as

well as the updated kitchen with Rayburn,

the generous bedrooms and plentiful

storage.

A second dwelling (with four bedrooms,

two bathrooms) and separate studio

provide additional income/business

opportunities, or independent living

space for extended family, whilst the

historic stable block and eight paddock

facilities are perfect for equestrian lovers.

The swimming pool, spa pool, tennis court,

snooker room and beautifully established

grounds create a magic wonderland of

beauty and recreation... all situated on

4.6323ha of prime Ohoka land.

A quality homestead for the family who

desire a truly outstanding country home

which has it all, or perhaps the buyer who

understands the potential for the property

as a venue destination.

Situated in the heart of Ohoka provides

a unique country lifestyle in a well loved

community - and only a short distance

from Ohoka School and the Ohoka village

with a Farmers market... whilst in close

proximity to Rangiora (8kms), Kaiapoi

(6kms) and Christchurch CBD (24kms).

before 14th December at 4.00pm.

Your Local Views

Readers respond to an

article about the Rawhiti

and Avondale golf course

land swap for housing

which has been proposed

by Regenerate Christchurch

Tanya Didham – The worst

thing to me about this is not

losing a golf course (couldn’t

give a monkey’s about that, we

have loads), it is putting the

‘replacement’ on the regenerating

Bexley salt marsh. Critical habitat

that has nowhere else to go.

Whatever way you slice this one,

it’s a dud.

Stephan Lance Gardiner –

Seeing as this is for the future of

our city, people over a certain age

should not have a say. As most

elderly people are not open to

change weather better or worse.

Bruce Burns – I am firmly

against the Rawhiti Domain land

swap, it will be the thin end of

the wedge.

Les Money – Definitely

against it. Natural green

landscapes will bring more

people to enjoy New Brighton

than cheap housing. My

suggestion would be to put that

housing in Fendalton Park.

Linda Street – I am

completely opposed to the

proposed land swap between

Rawhiti Domain and Bexley red

zone. Of all the red zoned land, it

seems obvious that Bexley should

be allowed to naturalise and

return to wetland. Liquefaction

has repeatedly occurred and,

after rain, there is major ponding

in this area.

Bexley is currently accessible

to anyone, but a golf course

would limit and interfere with

this public access. The major

detrimental ecological impact

of a golf course being located

alongside the river is just plain

wrong. Christchurch east has

suffered enough loss of assets

such as schools, bowling and

croquet clubs, shops and

churches, so why would anyone

think it is a good idea to lose

a golf course by swapping two

golf courses for one? There is

already ample space left vacant

for housing after the closure of

so many of our local schools

such as Central New Brighton,

Freeville, Wainoni, Aranui

and Burwood to name a few.

GUARDIANS: Ruthie Emeny and Cathy Baker from the

Guardians of Rawhiti are firmly against the land swap proposal.

The Guardians of Rawhiti are

absolutely right to fear that this

would be the beginning of the

end for the fantastic community

asset that Rawhiti Domain is.

You only have to look at what

has happened to QE II; the

park environment has been

decimated and continues to be

carved up with the most recent

development a massive gym

building consented to be located

right in the middle of two sports

fields. Leave Bexley to revert to its

natural state.

Readers respond to an

article about rabbits living

on the Anzac Drive, New

Brighton and Travis Rds

roundabouts and whether

they should be culled or

caught and released

Gill Williams – For the last 11

years, I have driven past pukekos,

canadian geese, ducks and once

a loose bull in the New Brighton

Rd and Travis Rd area.

There has never been any

mention of these animals being

a problem in the tabloids, or

anywhere else to my knowledge.

The rabbits have been on the

roundabouts for several months

now, with no mention of them

being regarded as unwelcome or

harmful and needing to be dealt

with.

Therefore, I think the rabbits

should be caught and released so

they enjoy their lives with no risk

to them or anyone else.

Donna Hancock – Why

do they have to interfere at all?

Bunnies are happy and probably

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

quite safe, drivers are responsible

for themselves. Live and let live.

Rosie Carney – I am

emailing you as I feel very

passionate about the survival of

these beautiful rabbits on Anzac

Drive, New Brighton and Travis

Rds.

They have obviously evolved

since the earthquakes, and

them being black in colour, I

would think they were originally

domestic animals that have

bred. I think if they are culled

there will be an outcry from the

general public.

I live near the roundabouts and

don’t see them everyday, they

are under the bushes most of

the time. I think they should be

caught together as a group and

relocated together to another site.

Who are we to cull animals if is

is the easiest option, makes one

glad we are human and not an

animal.

Claire Coveney – The

black rabbits do not need to

be culled, they are not hurting

anyone. They could be humanely

sterilised. The biggest pest on this

planet is the two-legged human,

who is responsible for destruction

of habitat and pollution.

Such hypocrisy about pests

in NZ. The road should never

have gone through Travis

Wetland as wildlife is killed

by the next biggest pest, motor

vehicles.

Burnside-based preschool and nursery,

The Enchanted Garden, was handed over

to new owner-operator Debbie Taylor in

October. She has been in early childhood

management for over seven years and has

three children of her own. Along with the

familiar faces of long-time staff, Debbie’s

vision is to continue the high quality care

and reputation that The Enchanted Garden

has maintained since 1995.

The centre offers children a home away

from home, with a philosophy based on

holistic, individualised care. They engage

higher teacher-to-child ratios to allow

better care and attention. The centre

is staffed with a team of professional

educators and nurturers who are highly

trained and passionate about creating

happy experiences.

The setting is warm and home-like in

nature while the playground and indoor

environment have been designed to allow

children to safely explore and learn with

confidence. This is supported by a strong

curriculum designed for active and exciting

play.

With 10 spaces in their nursery, and

23 spaces in their preschool, the centre

provides the complete early childhood

service. The fluidity of care allows children

to form close bonds while families enjoy

peace of mind.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

HOW TO BARBECUE

PERFECT RIBEYE STEAK

Ingredients

Ribeye steaks, at least an 1.5

inches thick

Olive oil

Salt

Fresh ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat your grill to high heat.

If you have a sear burner and a

steak that is more than an inch

thick, get one side of the grill

going at about medium-high in

case you need to cook it through

a little more after the sear.

Remove the ribeye steaks from

their packaging and rub them

down with some olive oil and

then coat a generous amount

of salt and freshly ground black

pepper. The olive oil provides

just enough fat to help the salt

and pepper create a great, caramelised

crust.

Clean and lubricate your grill

grates with some cooking oil on

a rolled up piece of paper towel

(using tongs, of course).

Place the ribeye steaks on the

hottest part of the grill and then

stand ready with the tongs.

At this point, you are on flareup

watch. The fat dripping off of

the steaks could create a flare-up.

If a flare-up occurs and doesn’t

go away in a few seconds, simply

use your tongs to slide the steaks

away from the open flame until

the flame dies down and then

move them back over the heat.

Continue to grill with the lid

open for about 4-6min.

Flip the steaks over onto the

other side, still over the hottest

part of the grill.

Grill the ribeye steaks for an

additional 4-6min on the other

side, lid open, for a medium-rare

delicious steak.

Remove the steaks from the

grill and allow to rest for 5min

before serving. The resting

period is important so that the

juices don’t run out when you cut

into the ribeye, so be patient.

AVOCADO AND

CARAMELISED PINEAPPLE

SALAD

Ingredients

2 Tbsp Brown sugar

½ Pineapple, peeled

2 Tbsp Butter

3 Avocados, firm but ripe

½ Red onion

100g Blue cheese, creamy

½ Red chilli

2 cups Salad leaves, washed

Dressing

1 Orange, zest and juice

1 Chilli, finely chopped

1 tsp Ground cumin

4 Tbsp Avocado oil

1 to taste Salt & freshly ground

pepper

Directions

Prepare all the ingredients.

Core the pineapple, then cut

the flesh into 3cm cubes and

sprinkle with the brown sugar.

Put a frying pan on to heat, then

add the butter. When the butter

is starting to sizzle, add the pineapple

pieces and fry over a gentle

heat until they are caramelised

on all sides.

Cool. Cut the avocados into

2-3cm cubes. Break the cheese

into small pieces and slice the

onion paper-thin. Slice the chilli

into thin pieces. Make the dressing

by shaking all the ingredients

together in a jar.

To serve, line a flat serving

plate with the fresh salad leaves.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

PEGASUS POST

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in

Sydenham sees clients with a

range of symptoms but many

of their middle-aged and senior

clients visit complaining of pain in one or

both hips.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a back

muscle could also be the cause, as shown in

the image.

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old

client with severe arthritis who walked with

a stick, told her, “I will end up in a wheelchair,

I cannot put any weight through my right

leg due to pain in my hip and buttock”.

“Within 4 treatments, she was walking with

her stick but without the severe pain,” says

Ietje. “The arthritis was one of the factors

that made her muscles spasm but the other

was that older people move less and the

flexed position the hip is in when we sit is

particularly bad for the hip.” Ietje is happy

with the fact that although the client was 89

and could have been “given up on” or told to

live with the pain, she made a difference to

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

her health and wellbeing.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise program

designed to mobilize and stretch the hip,

strengthen the important core muscles and

increase general strength and balance. They

teach a movement sequence that stretches

the hip in all directions whilst the client is

able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for

older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem. If

severe arthritis is the underlying cause, some

Back hip muscle that causes hip pain

maintenance therapy may be necessary, but

that is often more affordable and, for older

patients, better tolerated than surgery. In

very few treatments the client will know if

it is going to work for them or not, without

financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

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.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Experience comfort! Experience

technology!!!

Dr Keith Chiang and his team at

Fendalton Dental Surgery are excited to

offer the very latest in dental imaging

technology. They have taken delivery of

several sophisticated dental equipment

over the recent months. All designed

to enhance patient diagnosis, improve

their comfort and safety during dental

procedures by upgrading to the latest

available. Keith believes in constantly

updating himself with recent advances

by attending several courses in NZ

and overseas. “Each course teaches me

something new and makes me revisit

Dentistry with a renewed passion”.

Keith with

the CBCT

The newest arrival is the Cone Beam

Computed Tomograph (CBCT), which

provides a 3D image of the patient’s

jaws and teeth through the latest digital

imaging technology. As Keith explains,

the current digital X-rays shows only

a 2D image. The image is crisper but

it sometimes leaves a few questions

unanswered. Now with the complete 3D

technology, he is able to have a much

better understanding of problems in

the patient’s mouth. “It’s a huge game

changer and takes diagnostic imaging

to a totally different level. It’s like having

Superman’s extra pair of eyes to help with

the diagnosis,” he says. “And it saves time

as patients do not have to be referred

elsewhere for the scans as we have the

CBCT machine in our practice and the

scan costs cheaper comparatively too”.

The Surgery has also acquired a stateof-the-art

patient sedation monitoring

system, Capnograph, which is used for

patients under IV sedation. Surgical or

Dental treatment under IV sedation is an

area of special interest for Keith, who is

a dental surgeon, and he has carried out

more than 1800 IV procedures since 2008.

“Patient safety is our utmost priority when

they are under sedation. Our Capnograph

monitors their vital signs namely the

respiratory gaseous exchange of oxygen

and carbon dioxide levels, heart rate and

Non-invasive intermittent blood pressure

throughout the procedure. This not only

benefits the patient, but also gives the

dentist a sense of reassurance.”

Associate dentist, Dr Zohnia McNeill

has a keen focus in cosmetic and

restorative dentistry, restoring the smile

for people of all ages and from all walks

of life. She shares the same passion for

dentistry and is happy to put a smile

back on the patients face. Oral Health

Therapist, Amy Lee is dedicated to

looking after the Oral hygiene of the

patients. Her role involves treating gum

diseases, educate people about care of

The Fendalton Dental team

their teeth and gums to help prevent oral

diseases and maintain good oral health as

well as overall general health.

The Fendalton Dental Surgery

provides General dental services with

a focus on Surgical and Restorative

Dentistry. The team warmly welcomes

you to enjoy the friendly environment

and the experience the new technology

they provide. The Surgery is located

on the high-profile corner of Idris and

Glandovey roads. For an appointment

ocean.

Exquisitely written, Oxygen is a mind-altering and immersive

coming-of-age story about a boy who grew up on a sailing boat,

confessions of self-doubt in her journals, and heartbreaking letters

to and from her mother, she gives evidence to all that made it

both unlikely and inevitable that she would become a writer.

Through spontaneous storytelling, she shows how a fluid fictional

state of mind unleashed near-forgotten memories that became

the emotional nucleus of her novels. Supplied with candor and

characteristic humor, Where the Past Begins takes readers into the

idiosyncratic workings of her writer’s mind, a journey that explores

memory, imagination, and truth, with fiction serving as both her

divining rod and link to meaning.

REAL ESTATE

Lifestyle and leisure… all only moments away!

23 Waitikiri Drive, Parklands

Deadline Treaty - Closing November 22nd 2017 (unless sold prior)

3 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 1 living room | 1 kitchen/dining room I 2 car-garage | Listing no. NTW25143

Set back on a spacious, established section

and located only moments away from all

the lifestyle and recreation that Parklands

offers, this very sunny three-bedroom home

delivers more than just space to rest your

feet at the end of the day. This home has just

been given a makeover by the current owners

including a new kitchen, carpet, drapes and

a complete repaint throughout the home.

This gives you the opportunity to move and

simply enjoy all that 23 Waitikiri Drive has

to offer. With two seriously well sized double

bedrooms and a third single bedroom this

home would cater perfectly to the growing

family or anyone seeking a more modern

home in a great location. The new kitchen

has made a massive improvement from the

original bones, now offering more storage

space and a great workspace for the master

chef of the family. Other recent updates

include the addition of LED Lighting in

the lounge, hallway and kitchen. On top

of this the new carpet was only installed at

the beginning of October. The home also

offers double internal access garaging and

a separate laundry as well. The large open

lounge is spacious enough to cater for large

furniture and houses the log burner fire and

also the heat pump ensuring the home is

warm and cool all year round on demand.

The lounge leads through to the dining space

and then the kitchen and makes great use of

natural lighting. The outside spaces of the

home hold established plantings and plenty

of space to spread out at the end of the day.

There is also the option if fencing in more

of the frontage to create another private

yard space if you so desire. My vendors are

extremely motivated to make the next move

with plans to move out of Christchurch set

in stone. I this looks like your next home

call Jonathan and his team today to find

out more. Deadline Sale Closing November

22nd 2017 (unless sold prior)

Open Homes: 1.30pm – 2.15pm
