Urgent

meeting

sought with

Education

Ministry

on future

of schools

• By Sophie Cornish

AN URGENT meeting with the

Ministry of Education has been

requested to discuss the future

of several school sites across east

Christchurch.

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board want to hold

the meeting before Christmas.

Future use of the Burwood

School site, a delay in the

demolition of Aranui Primary

School, discussions about the sale

of Central New Brighton School,

and the impact six school

closures has had will be on the

agenda.

The community board will also

request meetings be set up with

community groups in response to

the use of the Aranui and Central

New Brighton school sites.

Said Coastal-Burwood Ward

city councillor Glenn Livingstone:

“Given the significance of the loses

– several schools – we’re saying,

hey, we want your attention.”

“Because this is big. Those

decisions were made following the

earthquake.”

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

from the editor’s desk

THERE APPEARS to be a bone of

contention over whether the grass on an

empty section in Avondale (see page 3) is a

fire risk or not.

Neighbour Maree Ross has been trying

without success to get the undergrowth cut

for sometime.

She and a nearby kindergarten say it’s a fire risk.

It is the section owner’s responsibility to cut the undergrowth.

But that person can’t be traced.

So Maree wants the city council to step in.

It appears they won’t. They’ve told her the undergrowth isn’t a

health risk in terms of rats, flies and other inhabitants.

Fire risk doesn’t seem to be on their radar.

And that’s puzzling given there’s a fire ban in place and the

region is tinder dry.

Clean this up – neighbour

• By Sophie Cornish

AN AVONDALE woman fed

up with living next door to an

overgrown property has been

told it isn’t the city council’s

problem.

Maree Ross has tried for more

than 18 months to get some

action on the mess which she

believes is a fire risk, attracts

flies and vermin and is affecting

her physical and mental health.

The property is next

to Woolley St Kidsfirst

kindergarten which is also

concerned about the fire risk.

Ms Ross was visited by a

city council staff member on

Thursday. He said the section

is not a health nuisance. The

section was not assessed

for fire risk, a city council

spokeswoman said yesterday.

The city council was unable

to contact the owner to clean up

the property, Ms Ross said she

was told.

City council spokeswomen

Claire Le Grice said the

maintenance responsibilities

for private property sit with the

property owner, unless it poses a

safety risk.

“The council may issue a

notice requiring an occupier to

trim or remove vegetation where

it is likely to become a source

of danger in the event of a fire;

or it causes an obstruction by

encroaching onto footpaths,

cycleways or roads.

The city council placed fire

restrictions on the city on

Saturday.

“Long, dry grass can cause

fires to spread quickly so it

is important at this time of

year that people keep any

grass around their property

trimmed,’’ said Richard Neale,

compliance and investigations

team leader.

Ms Ross said the empty

section was purchased after the

earthquakes.

Nothing has been done to

maintain the site since.

Ms Ross’ hay-fever has

increased since living next to the

overgrown garden.

Christmas tips to keep

your pets safe over the

festive season

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

coming festive season the staff at McMaster

and Heap Veterinary Practice wish to give

you some helpful tips on how to keep your

pets safe and happy over this busy time.

Festive foods:

Many festive foods can be harmful and

toxic to cats & dogs – here are some of

the major ones that pop up every year at

Christmas time!

Grapes and Raisins - Some types of

grapes and raisins have been shown to

cause kidney failure in dogs when eaten

in toxic quantities. So think before offering

your pet some tasty Christmas cake or

yummy ‘treats’ off the fruit platers.

Onions - Pieces of raw onion, onion

powder, or even cooked onion can cause

damage to red blood cells, which could

result in hemolytic anemia.

Garlic - fresh and powdered forms of garlic

are more potent than onions. These also

cause damage to red blood cells. Cats are

much more sensitive as they have more

fragile red blood cells.

Xylitol - Xylitol is a sugar alternative that

is used in many commercial ‘sugar-free’

candies, gum, and other food items.

Xylitol has been shown to cause severe

hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and liver

damage in dogs and can be fatal. Xylitol

keeps popping up in unexpected places –

the newest one is peanut butter, so be sure

to read the label carefully.

Macadamia Nuts - dangerous to dogs

when eaten can result in weakness,

depression, vomiting, incoordination, and

tremors. In most cases, dogs developed

clinical signs within the first twelve hours

after eating the macadamia nuts.

Chocolate - Contains Theobromine and

caffeine which can cause increased heart

rate, tremors, and excitation, depending

on the type and the quantity ingested

potentially death when ingested at a toxic

dose. Other effects seen with chocolate

overdose are vomiting, diarrhea, increased

thirst, increased urination, and lethargy.

Dark chocolate is the most serious as it

contains the most theobromine, then milk

chocolate, while white chocolate doesn’t

contain any, but still not healthy for your

dog to have.

Cooked bones – These easily splinter

and the bone shards can cause choking or

get stuck in your dog’s gums or stomach

resulting in emergency surgery. Discourage

your dog from foraging in your bins and try

to secure all of the lids.

Christmas Decorations

Christmas decorations are not for pets to

play with.

• Keep your pet away from plants, many of

which are poisonous, especially lilies which

are extremely toxic for cats and results in

acute kidney failure.

• Keep electrical wires and batteries out of

your pets reach. Chewing electrical cables

can cause electric shock or burns to the

mouth.

• Be careful if you are using tinsel on your

tree. If eaten, the tinsel can block your pets

intestines – we saw several of these last

Christmas!

Don’t forget about your RABBITS

Flystrike is a serious condition in rabbits.

It occurs mostly in the summer months

and we see a lot of cases over the holiday

season as people get really busy and forget

to regularly check on their pets.

Flystrike is extremely distressing and it is

also potentially fatal. It is caused by flies that

are attracted to damp fur, urine, faeces and

the odour of the rabbit’s scent. The flies

will land on the rabbit normally around the

rabbits rear end and lay their eggs. Within

a very short time of 2 hours the eggs will

hatch into maggots which start to feed on

the rabbits skin. This process happens very

quickly and is not always caught in time.

Check your rabbit twice a day and if you

find a maggot on your rabbit take it to us

immediately.

be. In George Lockyer’s new book, The Long and Winding Aotearoa,

we find him riding his Triumph Bonneville around the country, from

Kaitaia to Invercargill, and seeing his often humorous take on life

from under a crash helmet. On the way round our magnificent country

he stops to interview some fascinating characters, all with a story to

tell. We meet not just motorcyclists, but a wide variety of kiwis, from

craftsmen, artists and firefighters, to rugby coaches, quakers and

architects.

Sculpture turns back to dust

• By Sophie Cornish

A SELF-destructing sculpture

represents the “fragility” of the

eastern suburbs, according to its

creator.

New Brighton-based artist

Melissa Macleod’s Salt of the

Earth sculpture is made almost

entirely of sand and has slowly

collapsed.

Located in the red zone on

the corner of Linwood Ave and

Woodham Rd, the temporary

sculpture attempts to link east

Christchurch to the central city.

“I am interested in giving the

east more of a voice. I like to

do that by using materials that

make you think of the east side

of town. Sand is an obvious one,”

said Macleod.

It is a continuation of her other

art works which engage the

city’s coastal communities and

the environmental and social

challenges they face.

In the past, Macleod has used

sea water to create pieces and

could possibly use coastal yellow

daisies in future projects.

The giant sand wedge

mimicked a door stop when it

was first built.

“It’s a strong shape. The

wedge is used a lot in sculptural

practice. It’s quite significant in

that it does prise things open,

ARTISTIC: Melissa Macleod with her crumbling sand sculpture

which she says reflects the “fragility of the east”.

and also as a door jam, it holds

things open. I quite like its

symbolism.”

“The crucial point for me

is that it is strong but it also

dissolves, softens and weakens

and that is essentially cutting to

what the core of life is out this

way (in the east).”

Macleod was aware of

the sculpture’s potential

disintegration but “hoped that it

would speak to the strength and

fragility of a community that is

both determined and trodden

under foot”.

“The ultimate aim was that it

might stand as a strong looking

form for maybe a day, but it

is sand and I asked it to do an

incredible thing by being that

big, but I think the hot days we

had could’ve affected it. The

ground is very solid and there is

a lot of vibration in the ground

from passing trucks.”

She hopes the crumbling

sculpture will challenge public

perception.

“It’s a real test of what public

sculpture can be or what the

public will cope with to some

degree. It’s sort of like placing a

broken thing in a public place

and that might challenge some

people. They might not see it as

part of the work – they might see

it as a problem.”

•From page 1

“They didn’t have to be, we

were already going through

enough,” “It’s time to sit down

and have a conversation. It’s

kind of along the lines of ‘you

owe us’,” Cr Livingstone said.

Recently, a facility needs

assessment was

carried out by an

independent social

researcher for the

community board

to identify gaps

within communities

following the

earthquakes.

It found a lack

of community

meeting points in

the east, especially

in Dallington, Avondale and

As a result of a lack of

“Informants talked about

go anywhere and are very

socially isolated,” said the

report.

Dallington Residents’

Association chairman

Mark Beanland agreed.

“There’s always been

apathy and there’s always

been the feeling that

we’ve been forgotten,” Mr

Beanland said.

Cr Livingstone hopes

the meeting with MOE

will help this issue.

“We lost the roots, home,

Principal’s Report

Warm greetings to

the Linwood College

community. Kia ora

koutou. Talofa lava.

Kia orana. Malo e

lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa

atu. Namaste.

Kumusta.

Linwood College

enjoys celebrating

student success in all its forms so our

congratulations to the prizewinners

highlighted on this page. I would like to also

congratulate all Junior students who were

awarded prizes at the 2017 Junior Prize Giving

ceremony held on 11th December.

Our community views education as

the wellbeing of the whole person. All

developmentally positive experiences enrich

our students’ understanding of whom they

are and broaden their outlook. They nurture

students’ classroom focus by contextualising

their learning and sowing the seeds of positive

ambition.

Linwood College believes in a “pathwayed

Other Major Award Winners

curriculum”. This means the school, students

and families knowing:

1. Students’ learning and skills as they come

into LC from our partner primary schools

and building on these successes

2. How the learning at LC connects to what

the students want to do when they leave

school. “What are my post-school pathways

and how does my LC help me achieve these

pathways?”

In this way learning is meaningful to the

individual and strengths-based. At Linwood

the individual matters.

Finally, the Education Review Office reviewed

Linwood College in the second half of term 3.

The confirmed report is now public and I am

delighted to say that the school is back on the

three year return cycle. It is a testament to

everyone’s collective vision and positive work

for our school: BOT, staff, students, whanau,

partner schools and community.

Nga mihi nui and best wishes for the festive

season and summer holiday.

Year 10s get Enterprising

Last week ninety Year 10 students worked

hard for three days in the school gym to create

business ideas. Two presenters from the Young

Enterprise Trust came to the school to lead the

students through the process of creating and

developing businesses. On Wednesday, the

students were put into groups of between five and

ten students and given the challenge of creating

a new business based on modern technology. By

Friday, the students were ready to present their

ideas and associated business plans to judges

from the local business community.

Here Sina Sila and her team mates are presenting

their idea ‘Zoinks’ - an app that stops you from making

unnecessary purchases to Gyaney from BP.

2017 Senior Prizegiving Awards

Early in Term 3, the school’s senior

Weight of gym phobia lifted

ADVERSITY: Libby Searle

started her own home gym

and fitness business and was

named small group trainer of

the year at the New Zealand

Exercise Industry Awards.

• By Sophie Cornish

LIBBY SEARLE used to fear

exercise and the gym as she

struggled to overcome obesity,

anorexia and binge eating.

But now the fit and trim

business owner runs her own

home gym to help women build

confidence and get over the fears

she once had.

The competitive bench-presser

has just won a national exercise

award for small group trainer of

the year.

The 26-year-old Avondale

resident runs Libby Searle

Fitness on Breezes Rd and

is “changing women’s lives

through weight training”.

“I always thought that the

gym was for fit people, so

when that changed in my life,

I wanted to help other women

realise they could do that too. I

wanted them to make that first

step into the gym and that’s

where my group classes, ladies

lifting, was born.”

The personal trainer opened

her home gym in 2016 and now

runs 13 ‘ladies’ lifting’ classes

and four high-intensity circuit

classes every week.

“I love working from home

and having my own studio. I

think the girls like having that

privacy as well. We’ve got our

own wee community going on,”

said Miss Searle.

Her journey to health

started in 2011 when a flatmate

suggested they run a half

marathon.

“At the age of 19, I was

heading towards obesity, had

lost all confidence, was getting

sick all the time, and couldn’t

even walk to the end of the

street without getting puffed.”

“We ran a lamp post, walked

a lamp post and we actually did

it . . . and that was the turning

point for me,” she said.

Miss Searle started going to

a gym following a hip injury

which prevented her from running.

She was thrilled to receive the

award. “I was so surprised that

I had won. I was really stoked

actually, it was quite cool.”

She hopes to own her own

commercial, boutique-style gym

in the future.

Te Whare Whanua, The Family

House will aim to give children

aged eight and under social opportunities

Users to take over community

centre bookings from council

• By Sophie Cornish

A NEW community facilities booking

service may help maximise the use of free

spaces for groups in the city’s east.

Local community groups have expressed

an interest in managing the bookings

done through the city council’s call

centre.

A community facility report for the

Coastal-Burwood Community Board

completed by an independent researcher

found the booking system was not as effective

as it could be.

“Concerns were raised that bookings

for the community centres are taken and

managed by the city council call centre,

and anyone can book the facility for

any duration providing it is available.

In practice, this means that for large

chunks of time on a recurring basis, the

facility is booked out by the same groups,

preventing access by other groups or local

residents,” said researcher Sarah Wylie.

She interviewed about 27 key stakeholders

from suburbs in both wards.

The co-ordinated approach will make

it easier to match the multiple facilities to

users’ needs.

Residents from Aranui, North New

Brighton, South Brighton, Queenspark

and Parklands identified the change

would be positive.

The city council plans to conduct a trial

with the Aranui Community Trust for the

Aranui/Wainoni Community Centre.

If successful, the Aranui Community

Trust will also manage the bookings for St

Ambrose church.

The Bridge South Brighton Trust has

also identified an interest in taking over

bookings for the South Brighton Community

Centre and South Brighton Surf Life

Pupils tested at police college

SCHOOLS

• By Sophie Cornish

FOUR MARSHLAND School

pupils are on their way to being

as fit as a police officer.

The year 7 and 8 pupils gained

the quickest time for intermediate

students in the physical

competency test at the Royal New

Zealand Police College in Wellington.

The annual event is run by Blue

Light New Zealand with teams

of intermediate-aged pupils participating

in mental and physical

challenges.

The Marshland team finished

third overall out of 20 teams in

the two-day national competition.

Marshland was one of two

Christchurch schools selected

from a city-wide competition run

by Blue Light Canterbury to get

an all-expenses paid trip to Wellington.

St Patrick’s School, Bryndwr,

was the other selected and the

two teams trained and travelled

together.

Marshland teacher Paul Tyson

said the pupils are “really motivated

kids.”

“They came back buzzing . . .

they were really wrapped to get

the fastest time. Even though they

came third overall, they were still

really pleased with that result,”

said Mr Tyson.

One of the four pupils has

already showed interest in joining

the police force.

FITNESS FANATICS: Tia Wynyard, Pai Wynyard, Mia McNaughton-Vincent and Niah Williams

Avonside old girl at emerging

leaders meeting in Thailand

MAKING FRIENDS: Courtney Cray with some Thai children on

a visit outside of Bangkok.

A FORMER Avonside Girls’

High student is making her mark

internationally, taking part in the

University Scholars Leadership

Symposium in Thailand.

Courtney Cray was one of

more than 900 students from

about 60 countries at the eighth

symposium aimed at emerging

leaders.

The Parklands resident who is

studying towards a Bachelor of

Social Work degree is passionate

about supporting families

facing challenges and hopes her

experience at the symposium

will help.

“Within New Zealand, and

globally, even beginning to

comprehend the magnitude of

the social injustices taking place

can be overwhelming,” she said.

Mrs Cray said a highlight of

the symposium was visiting a

village outside Bangkok where

people are working to be fully

self-sufficient.

“During our time, we met

with locals, and learnt firsthand

about the Thai farmers’

lifestyle and how they worked

collaboratively to be selfsufficient.

The experience left me

with a greater appreciation of

the hard work that goes into

producing rice and admiration

for the grassroots initiatives the

community have in place.”

The 27-year-old juggles study

with part-time work and looking

after her two-year-old daughter.

Mrs Cray said it was a

remarkable experience .

“I look back to the beginning

of the year and never saw myself

doing this,” she said.

“It was truly an amazing

opportunity getting to meet

with such a diverse group of

people and learn how they

were pursuing change in their

communities. I came away

feeling challenged and inspired.”

PEGASUS POST

From the Board

As we go to print we are excited to hear

our new Bishop, Fr Paul Martin SM,

has been appointed to Christchurch. In

celebrating the news, a special thank

you must go to Fr Rick Loughnan for

his leadership in the interim, to the

Diocese for its ongoing support and

we remember Bishop Barry Jones

with fondness. Bishop-Elect Paul’s

appointment represents an exciting

new phase of growth for our

Catholic community.

Thank you to our Board of Trustees,

college and community and members

of the Marian Foundation for your work

throughout 2017.

To our Marian girls – relax and enjoy the

well-earned break. There are some fantastic

programmes, and collaborative project

opportunities planned for 2018.

And finally, congratulations to our 2017

Marian College leavers. The gospel values

– which underpin the special character of

Marian College – will guide you well into

the future. We wish you all the very best

and please keep in touch.

Wishing you good health and blessings

this Christmas.

Marian College Board of Trustees

Georgiana Vaughan-Walker (right) Y12

has received the St John Grand Prior

Award in a ceremony hosted by the

Governor-General in Dunedin.

The Grand Prior Award is the ultimate

award, other than for bravery, for St John

Cadets. Georgiana was one of 90 cadets

- including former Marian student Steph

Wessing (left) - from around New Zealand

to receive the prestigious award.

‘I love learning new leadership skills and

I’m really thankful I joined St John, as

otherwise I wouldn’t have considered the

Navy as a career path,’ she says.

Georgiana’s plans include a gap year,

travel, and a career in the Navy

as a medic.

The opportunities and benefits of an innercity

campus are many for Marian College

students.

From Year 11, students can choose to

earn credits at Ara Institute of Canterbury,

making the most of excellent facilities and

teaching expertise – just across the road.

Recently, three Marian students received

Marian College Principal Mary-Lou

Davidson says as well as reflecting the

opportunities students have in a wide

range of areas of the school, awards are a

reflection of hard work and dedication.

The programme is a

Stuart (Te Aitanga-A-Mahaki) has received

a Ngā Mahi-a-Ringa Pūtaiao Scholarship

from Otago University. Keely will be

participating in a week-long Hands-on

at Otago programme during the summer

holidays to experience being a science

student on campus.

Keely says she is very excited to be

accepted onto the fully-funded programme.

‘I’m interested in a career in health,

science and physiology so it will be a great

opportunity to see what Otago University is

like,’ she says.

‘Recognising my gifts and

understanding how I can use them to

help others, was the biggest realisation

for me,’ Rawinia says.

Zonta Awards

The Zonta Awards are a celebration of the

highest sports achievers - leaders in their

sport locally and often competitors on the

world stage.

This year, three Marian College students

were finalists at the Zonta Sports Awards.

Renee Rae won the top award for her

contribution to netball umpiring. A judge

said Renee follows a long tradition of

Marian students who have won the award,

and there was something very special about

Marian College and its tradition of service.

Rebecca Lake (Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Irakehu)

and Millicent Smith (Ngāpuhi) were both

nominated for outstanding achievement

for their New Zealand representation

in football and ice hockey respectively.

This is the second year Rebecca has been

acknowledged in the highly competed

category.

MAINTENANCE: Donnell Park’s playground is in good condition, however the

tennis court, basketball court, paths, drinking fountain and toilet block need

repairs.

Call to address maintenance

issues at Donnell Park

• By Sophie Cornish

“A LOT of maintenance”

is needed in Burwood’s

Donnell Park before

it is considered a fully

functioning community

park again.

Coastal-Burwood

Ward city councillor

David East (right) said

with the east Burwood

community growing,

the park upkeep needs

to be addressed.

“Already when you drive

down Travis Rd now you

can see a number of new

houses being built and

there will be a need for a

community park.”

City council head of

parks Brent Smith said the

playground is in good condition

but the tennis court,

basketball court,

paths, drinking

fountain and toilet

block need repair

or renewal work.

“Staff will be

scoping out the

repairs over the

coming weeks, identifying

budget requirements and

checking on the status of

the infrastructure servicing

the area. This includes

reinstating a linkage path

across to Kingsbridge

Drive from the playground,”

said Mr Smith.

Reinstating the sports

field is not likely due to its

low lying nature following

the earthquakes.

In the meantime, the

mowing around the

playground and the

garden maintenance will

be brought back up to the

required standard.

“It has potential, the

infrastructure is all there,

it just needs bit of TLC to

bring it back to scratch,”

said Cr East.

FLAME FILES

Fire warning as summer

starts heating up early

• By Mark Thomas – fire

risk management officer

AS THE summer heats up,

so does the number of calls

our troops are attending.

It’s normal to have about

100 calls in a week.

Weather events, of

course, add to the number.

So the 169 incidents

attended last week can at

least in part be attributed

to the weather, or the heat,

to be more precise.

A large number of false

alarms, presumably from

fire detection systems

drooping and a large number

of ambulance assists

including, unfortunately,

several sudden deaths,

added to the list.

Also we attended far too

many grass and skip or bin

fires.

While a few of these are

the result of accidents most

of them were lit deliberately.

Whether it be kids

playing or malicious firestarters,

the dry conditions

make all of these potentially

serious.

The Governors Bay crew

were called to the local

hotel on December 2 to

what turned out to be a

patron puffing on a vaping

cigarette.

It’s a first for me to see

this but hardly surprising.

I followed a car the other

day with two people both

vaping and both front

windows open.

The clouds of vapour

they were seemingly

choreographing erupted

from both sides of the car

like whistles from a steam

train.

I guess it’s better for

them than the alternative!

Sprinklers in buildings

are expensive.

But one operating in

Pak’nSave in the Hornby

Hub on December 3

stopped a fire from a bakers

oven in its tracks.

The mall re-opened

quickly.

That’s why we love sprinkler

systems.

Miracle weight loss fruit

An extract of a small pumpkin-like fruit

called Garcinia Cambogia from India &

Asia has shown itself to greatly assist weight

management & overall health. In fact many

have found it to increase fat loss by 2 to 3

times greater than normal. T.V. Dr. Oz has

said it is the most effective & fastest working

Kilham, Dilo (pronounced dee-lo)

Oil is a powerful skin regenerator as

it is one of the most effective agents

in promoting the regeneration and

formation of new tissue, thereby

accelerating wound healing and

the growth of healthy skin. Dilo

Oil is super-absorbing and can

penetrate all three layers of the

skin, offering exceptional cell

hydration and regeneration.

As well as this, Dilo Oil has

potent anti-inflammatory,

antimicrobial, antifungal and

antioxidant properties.

Traditionally, Dilo Oil is used to keep the

skin young and youthful and for just about

any skin complaint. Some of the conditions

for which it is considered helpful include

abrasions, cuts and cracks, acne and

acne scars, pimples, blemishes, stretch

marks, wrinkles, blisters, burns (including

rashes, shaving irritation, dry or scaly skin,

CHRISTMAS HAM ON THE BONE GLAZED WITH PINEAPPLE

Ingredients

4kg ham on the bone

1 cup canned crushed pineapple,

drained

1 cup brown sugar, tightly packed

1 tsp ground ginger

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180 deg

C. Run a knife around the shank

end of the ham. Carefully slice

under the edge of the rind at the

base of the ham. Use your fingers

to ease between the rind and the

fat. Pull to gently remove the

rind. With a sharp knife, score

the fat with 3mm-deep cuts in a

diamond pattern. Place ham in a

foil-lined oven pan large enough

to catch any glaze that drips as it

cooks. Surround ham with one

cup cold water.

Drain pineapple and combine

with glaze ingredients in a bowl.

Smear glaze over scored fat of

ham.

Bake ham for 40-45min,

basting at regular intervals until

the glaze has caramelised to a

golden brown.

Rest the baked ham for at least

15min before carving. Sliced ham

can either be served hot or at

room temperature.

ROSE PETAL MERINGUE WITH SUMMER BERRIES AND STRAWBERRY SAUCE

250g strawberries

Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 deg C

Time to check your tyres before

heading away on holiday

As the holidays approach and plans are

made for summer road trips, now is the

time to check that your tyres are in good

condition, says Julie Hurst of JCM Direct,

the tyre specialists in Birmingham Drive.

Julie and her husband Athol own the

business, with Julie running it on a dayto-day

basis.

Now that WOFs on later model vehicles

are issued every 12 months, drivers may

be unaware that their tyres are becoming

worn, Julie says.

“Come in and see us. We offer free tyre

checks, so you can head away on holiday

knowing they are roadworthy and your

family is safe.”

If tyres do need replacing, JCM Direct

offers a wide variety of quality brands at

very competitive prices. They have new

tyres for everything from cars, vans and

4WDs, to caravans, ride-on mowers,

wheelbarrows and trailers. As well as an

excellent selection of quality second-hand

tyres for most vehicles, they hold a vast

selection of 4WD tyres in stock.

JCM Direct also offer puncture repairs,

supply and fitting of new and secondhand

alloy wheels, wheel alignments,

replacement factory steel rims and rim

repairs.

“We also specialise in old rims from

the 1930s to 1970s for people with older

caravans and trailers – the modern rims

won’t fit those,” Julie says.

Finance is available with Q Card or

Farmers Card.

JCM Direct is located on the corner

of Birmingham Drive and Hands Road.

They are open Monday to Friday, 9.30am-

5pm and Saturday 9.30am-1pm. Phone

343-0099, 027 22 63 805.

Is your property

safe from fire?

Here’s a guide to help understand

the risk in your area

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

your family and your property safe.

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

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

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

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

you can be best prepared this fire season.

Steps you need to take to keep your property safe

1

2

3

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

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

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

- Keep your lawns mowed and green.

- Don’t store firewood close to the house.

- Clear your gutters of dry leaves.

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

Have an escape plan and an agreed safe meeting place

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

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

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

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

- If in doubt, leave early.

Good access for firefighters

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

overgrown trees or other obstacles that may prevent access to your

property.

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

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

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

Co, Julian Hay on piano.

“I adore this time of year. Not only because

I see it through the eyes of my children but

because it’s a special time to reflect on the past

year, the joys and the challenges. I have

created a concert that will include the angelic

voices of children singing which is both pure

and for me what Christmas is all about.”

In a career spanning 25 years, Ali has

starred in numerous musicals and plays across
