But for sitting councillor Tim

Scandrett there will be no contest

– he goes back onto the council

that’s what democracy is all about.

Fast food solution sought

AIR

• By Tom Doudney

A CAMPAIGN to crack down

on the proliferation of fast food

outlets has found favour with

city councillors but concerns

were raised over how fast food

could be defined.

Representatives from the

Linwood community, including

schools and health professionals,

made a deputation to the city

council on Thursday asking

for support to limit the ability

of fast food outlets to set up

around schools and low income

areas.

City councillors requested that

staff further investigate options

for possible legislative measures

as well as other measures that

could be taken to encourage

healthy eating and report back

as soon as possible.

All city councillors who

spoke on the matter expressed

support for doing something to

tackle the issue. However, some

including Raf Manji questioned

how fast food could be officially

defined.

“I can see how you could come

up with a planning proposal

where you could limit the size

of food outlets near a school

and that kind of stuff,” Cr Manji

said.

I run weekly mobile office constituency

clinics around the Port Hills. For dates and

locations please visit my website.

You can also contact my office if there is

anything I can help you with.

PACKED: The number of fast food outlets in Linwood has caused concern in the community.

“But I think you are delving

into something that is quite

unsolvable in terms of defining

what healthy food is.”

City councillor Yani Johanson

said the city council had a proud

tradition of leading the way on

championing solutions for such

difficult issues.

“We should continue to do

that as we are being asked to

today,” Cr Johanson said.

“This is difficult, and I think

that point has been well made

by everyone, but actually it is

Style is

forever

also very simple – it’s whether or

not we wish to stand up for our

community, for our children, for

the health of our city by taking

a more regulatory approach to

these issues.”

Linwood Medical Centre

medical director Jane Heatherington,

who was part of the

group making the deputation,

said the medical centre had

seen the effect of fast food on its

patients over the 35 years that

it had been part of the community.

“In Linwood we have got a

higher proportion of obese and

overweight children than the

rest of Christchurch,” she said.

“We have obese children who

have high blood pressure, high

cholesterol and sleep apnea, we

see the poor diet affects their

learning and their mood, we

see parents with arthritis and

diabetes and liver damage and

then we see their grandparents

with heart disease, renal failure,

amputations, kidney failure and

early deaths.”

In Brief

QUALITY UPDATE

The Hagley-Ferrymead

Community Board will receive

an update on air quality in

Bromley and Woolston at its

meeting today. The Woolston

monitoring station has recorded

four high pollution nights so

far this year. Environment

Canterbury staff will be in

attendance to brief the board.

NEW STREET NAME

Wilrose Lane has been proposed

as the name for a new lane off

Randolph St, Linwood. The

lane serves six properties being

developed by the Gartshore Group.

The name is a combination of

the first names of William and

Rose Gartshore who founded the

company.

FREEDOM CAMPING BYLAW

Public consultation has opened

on proposed changes to the city

council’s Freedom Camping

Bylaw. The changes would

ban all non-self-contained

freedom camping throughout

the district, but allow certified

self-contained camping without

a time restriction in rural zones.

Consultation will close on

September 15 and a full review

of the bylaw is scheduled for next

year.

One man and his 1000 dreams

• By Roy Sinclair

NEIL ANDREWS leads the

way down precarious steps to a

seemingly underground room.

The Huntsbury man flicks on a

light switch.

I am wowed by a high viaduct

spanning a realistic gorge. My

eyes are led to tall forests, tree

ferns galore and a painted backdrop

depicting a stormy sky.

“This is what I do,” he says.

“It is not what I do in my spare

time.

“I mow the lawns in my spare

time.”

The room was purpose-built

for the 9mm (scale 9mm to the

foot) layout representative of a

one-time railway in Northland.

In his garage he is working on

a second, portable, layout. This is

a narrow-gauge railway based on

French townscapes.

Model railways is an interest

he could not be without.

“When I met my partner,

Helen, I told her it is me and my

trains. They are inseparable.

“She accepted that which was

great.”

He describes railway modelling

“as a thousand dreams

held together by a hundred

unfinished jobs. In other words,

a degree of chaos.”

HAND-MADE: Model builder, Neil Andrews and his miniature creation of early last century

Northland. ​

“Part of the fascination is

delving into history to discover

how it all would have looked like

early last century,” Mr Andrews

said.

He always liked to do things

with his hands. He enjoyed art

at school – and building things.

Even when he had clockwork

railways he was always cutting

up cardboard boxes to make

buildings.

He recalls scoring designs on

pieces of wood to make boats.

Railways became another part

of it.

Getting into more serious railway

modelling during the late

1950s, there was not much stuff

available and if it was he didn’t

have the money.

If he wanted it he made it.

“My mother used to take me to

the railway station. I remember

being in my pushchair watching

the Lyttelton trains come and go.

“Then at primary school I was

quite capable of making an Ecclass

electric locomotive with the

distinctive air compressor tanks

across the front. Everyone could

recognise it.”

Later, any new gadget at his

Canterbury University laboratory

would be first examined to

how it would be useful on the

model railway.

“Then we would work out how

it was intended to be used.”

His workplace became known

as “the model train laboratory.”

That’s what people who visited

talked about.

He travelled to model railroad

conventions in the United States,

becoming a member of the

R.G.S. East Hon3 club.

He visited huge model railway

shows in Cologne and Miniature

Wonderland in Hamburg.

“In Germany a model railway

is like a dishwasher. Everyone

has to have one. And most offerings

are German-made. They are

excellent.

“On one European trip Helen

and I were forced off the road by

Tour de France officials.

“We had to divert into a backwater

countryside.

BUILDING: A train layout under construction and a G-scale

layout at last year’s Christchurch Model Train Show.

“There we found towns of

beautiful buildings with terracotta

roofs. We had discovered

the romance of the French countryside.

“Anything French is different.

If you see a French car you know

it is French because it looks nothing

like anything else. It is the

same with railways.

“Their narrow gauge railways

were basically portable. They

could be picked up and laid

beside a road.

“That really intrigued me. Narrow

gauge secondary lines were

introduced to boost the network

of French railways.’’

The unplanned detour instigated

his French narrow gauge layout.

“One develops a modeller’s

mind.

“A modeller will typically think

how it would look in miniature?”

He talks about Hamburg’s

mind-boggling Miniature Wonderland.

“It’s absolutely intriguing. It’s

a huge collection that is pushing

the boundaries of technology and

inspiring manufacturers to pick

up on it with new products.”

“The model aircraft must

represent the peak of model

building.’’

“The model trains have been

running for so long the track is

wearing out.”

The closest we have in

Christchurch is the annual big

model train Show, this year being

held over the weekend of October

1 and 2.

The venue is Pioneer Stadium

in Lyttelton St, Spreydon. It is the

show’s 25th anniversary so promises

to be special.

Mr Andrews was an instigator

of the event, starting a model

train show at Hagley Community

College and then expanding to

the Horticultural Society hall.

Then, the Christchurch Model

Railway Exhibition Society was

formed and took over. Its growth

took it to Pioneer Stadium where

it has been ever since. At its peak

the show attracted 10,000 people

over the two days.

“It’s about its optimum size.

“Considering our modest

Christchurch population we do a

pretty good job,” he said.

This year’s show will help those

wanting to get into the hobby.

“We will have beginners’ train

sets and heaps of demonstrations.

Find out the best models to buy

and learn how to make things.

“Technology will be to the

fore. This is enhancing the hobby

and drawing younger people in.

They can operate a railway from

a PC or mobile phone, utilising

wi-fi and DCC (digital control

systems).”

He says model railway people

are an enthusiastic bunch. They

will do their utmost to share

what they know.

Andrews will be on the demonstrations

desk. It is likely he will

let slip how to disguise a lot of

money spent on the hobby within

the weekly household bills.

Singer-songwriter has

Singer-songwriter Asti-Loren Newman might only be 18, but she has already

travelled the world and attended the same school as Amy Winehouse. Annabelle

Dick talked to Asti-Loren about her new album, Psychedelic Rose, and getting

barred from the school choir thanks to a questionable comment about her

teacher’s facial hair.

So as a singer-songwriter,

when did you get into music?

I’ve always had a massive

passion for music. When I was

about 11-years-old, I joined

the Christchurch City Chorus,

which is like a 150-person barbershop.

We went to New York

and sung when I was 13, which

was awesome. I worked with

Nolan from the Christchurch

School of Rock in Sumner and

would perform at the Headless

Mexican. I’d also do busking

along the esplanade.

I tried

TALENTED:

Asti-Loren

busked her way

through Europe at

17-years-old.

to join the school choir but got

turned down in year 6, 7 and 8,

because apparently I couldn’t

sing in tune, but I think it was

because I told my music teacher

she had a moustache in front of

the whole class. I told her my

mum is a beauty therapist and

she should go to her and I think

she held that against me. It was

a pretty rude thing for me to say,

but I was only nine-years-old at

the time, so I didn’t know any

better. I was pretty upset about

it so I went to the principal and

told them, ‘I’m setting up my

own barbershop; I’m getting my

own teacher to come and teach it

and I’m going to teach it as well’

and I had more people auditioning

for it than the school choir.

I’ve always been the kind of

person that, if things don’t go my

way, I’m going to make it happen

for myself.

You attended the same music

school as Amy Winehouse –

how did that come about?

When the February 2011

earthquake happened, I was off

school, our house was quite

damaged and my mum

lost her business as well. I

watched the film Fame one

day and I knew I wanted

to go to stage school.

So without telling my

parents, I researched the

best stage schools across

the United States and

the United Kingdom

and I randomly

chose one to

apply for.

I heard

MENTOR: Asti-Loren mentoring Selwyn House Girls School

children last year.

back four days later from the

Susi Earnshaw Theatre School

with a letter of acceptance. Here’s

14-year-old me going, ‘oh no,

what have I done’, so I had to tell

my parents and they were really

supportive. I don’t know many

parents who would let their

14-year-old daughter go to the

UK by themselves.

What was it like attending the

school?

It was awesome. I was the first

person they’d ever had from

Australia/New Zealand. There

was three days a week of dance,

tap, jazz singing, theatre singing,

pop singing, all sorts really. The

teachers were great and really

young, too. One of my teachers

was a back-up dancer for Justin

Bieber and he’d also won

Britain’s Got Talent. I studied

there for two years and then

I got offered a development

contract with a label

in Soho and that’s how I met

my producer Chris Hall who

helped me create my album

Psychedelic Rose. I got to record

in the same vocal booth as Pink

Floyd.

How did it feel living in London

by yourself as a 14-yearold?

That must’ve been a pretty

scary experience?

It wasn’t too scary . . . but

being so young and moving to

another country was a bit of a

culture shock. I had an apartment

just down from school and

I made friends really fast. There

was always people I knew around

me like my uncle in Sweden and

my cousin came through when

he was on his O.E. I wasn’t really

naughty I always had so much

to do. I would go to the London

Central City Library and read

books on Woodstock. I went

to an Audrey Hepburn exhibition

and I’d often go to the East

London markets at the end of

the day and they’d give me free

donuts. They knew when I was

coming and give me all this free

food and I’d walk home with all

my groceries.

the world at her feet

And you travelled a bit from

there?

I’m really spontaneous so I

decided to do a busking tour

around Europe. So I contacted

Interrail and Eurail to see if it

was something they were interested

in – they bought it. So they

gave us a 12-day rail pass and we

went from London to Stockholm

to Copenhagen down to Warsaw

in Poland and then to Prague

then Munich, Salzburg, Venice,

Asti, Monte Carlo, Nice and

then Amsterdam all in 12 days

with my best friend who’s a New

Zealand windsurfer. While this

was happening I was only 17. I

have about 50,000 fans online so

I’d post each day were I was and

I’d have all these people turn up

– I didn’t really expect it at all. I

made about €200 (euro) busking

in each city.

So tell me about your

music and your new album

Psychedelic Rock which you

recently released?

The music I’ve established as

my brand is more electronic.

This album is influenced by

the 60s and 70s Americana,

Woodstock and that whole

hippy movement. I love the

era. I watched Jim Carroll’s The

Basketball Diaries and read a

novel he wrote . . . it’s really raw.

This album draws a lot from that.

This album is a concept album

I’ve written myself. It goes from

dark to light as I have this thing

called synaesthesia where I see

music and colour so it helps a

lot with my writing, it’s a bit of

a blessing. I wrote the album’s

track names before I wrote the

songs. I’ve written a novel to

go along with the album and

eventually I want to make it into

a short film. People can interpret

my music any way they want.

They’re not pop songs – it’s a

lot more than that. I don’t just

sit back and let other people

do things for me, I’m a really

involved person in my career so

I do a lot of promoting myself,

I keep up my social media

following and I edit my own

videos.

Do you have any influences

that you draw on when creating

your sound?

I listen to Lana del Rey, The xx,

Haim, Taylor Swift, Marina and

the Diamonds, Fleetwood Mac,

PERFORMING: Asti-Loren’s new album Psychedelic Rose was released on Saturday.

The Zombies, Dire Straits and

Pink Floyd – a real variety really.

I’ve taken different influences

from the greats of each genre and

incorporated them into my work

– whether it’s lyrically, musically

or the way I present myself.

Tell me a bit about growing

up – what’s you’re family like?

I grew up in a house on the top

of Scarborough Hill. I went to

Selwyn House and then St Andrew’s

College. My mother owns

a salon Yazu Hair Salon. She’s

incredibly talented. She’s been

on the L’Oreal creative team and

a part of New Zealand Fashion

Week. She was actually teaching

hairdressing in Asia while

she was eight months pregnant

with me which was pretty crazy.

She’s heavily driven . . . I think

that’s where I get it from. My

mum and my dad met at 15 and

started the business together. He

was going to be a mechanic, but

he’s technically a hairdresser by

trade. They separated when I was

nine so he went to the Caribbean

to buy a boat and sailed it

back to New Zealand to set up a

charter business. So, when I was

younger, I grew up in a boat. I

lived on it in Diamond Harbour

and the Lyttelton marina. I used

to go to school in a dingy. We

had five dalmatian dogs and we’d

be in a five-metre dingy with one

of our dogs at the front and my

brother and I in our posh private

school uniforms. We’d sail from

Diamond Harbour to Lyttelton

and we’d arrive at school soaked.

My little brother Lucca is 16 and

he’s the total opposite of me. He’s

blue-eyed, blonde and tall, while

I’m 1.49m and brunette. We were

both named after towns in Italy.

He’s really into skiing, inventing

and downhill mountain biking.

He made a flame thrower the

other day. I have a weird family.

It sounds like you’ve had an

insanely interesting upbringing!

What else do you love

outside of music?

I love going to the beach and I

love skiing. I did ski racing from

about seven-years-old at Mt

Hutt. We used to go skiing every

single weekend in winter from

when I was seven to 12. I did it

competitively and placed third

in the South Island when I was

younger.

Where to next for you? Where

do you want to end up?

I’m going to the US to film

a music video for my album

next month, then London for

a month, Ho Chi Minh City in

Vietnam after that, and then Bali

all before the end of the year.

Eventually I want to be able to

tour with my albums. I’ve

started on my second album

which is going to be completely

different with a different vibe. To

Fence up in

bid to make

dangerous

site safer

WOOD BROTHERS Mill in

Addington has been fenced off

following a city council-issued

dangerous building notice.

Numerous fires have damaged

the building and it has been the

target of vandalism.

The police, fire service,

city council and owner John

Cameron met recently to

discuss a plan to tackle the

safety issues.

It was damaged in the

September and February

earthquakes, which resulted in

it being red-stickered.

The dangerous building

notice for 14 Wise St was issued

under the provisions of the

Building Act 2004.

The fence will restrict access

to the site, the city council also

requested the sprinkler system

be re-commissioned to allow

firefighters to extinguish fires

without entering the building.

Mr Cameron said the

sprinkler system, while not

compliant, is back up and

running.

The fence will remain

while the dangerous building

declaration is in force.

Ferrymead seeing red

over a green building

• By Annabelle Dick

A NEW Cares Appliances

premises in Ferrymead

has attracted a number of

complaints from residents over

its bright green colour scheme.

The whiteware appliance store

has coped criticism before their

new building has even opened

on Ferry Rd.

It is set to open in early September.

Cares Appliances owner Matthew

Carpenter said it was the

first time he had received complaints,

in spite of his business

being in the city for 10 years.

“I had a complaint that said

the colour was terrible and disgusting.

I’ve also had comments

from third parties who’d seen

the colour and were put off by

it,” Mr Carpenter said.

The new premises drew the

following criticism via text:

“It looks disgusting. Contributes

nothing to Ferrymead. You

won’t get any support bringing

that here . . . sorry! Already the

talk of the community. Just so

you know . . . perhaps a re-think?

It might work at Eastgate.”

Mr Carpenter is welcoming

feedback from residents about

the premises but he said it was

unfair to insult other parts of the

city.

“It’s cruel of them patronise

and disparage the people of

the eastern side but obviously

someone’s got a bit of an elitist

mindset going on,” Mr Carpenter

said.

Mr Carpenter offered the

complainant a discount of 30 per

cent out of good will.

This isn’t the first store of its

kind in the city. There are also

several other chain stores in

Christchurch on Fitzgerald Ave

and Barrington St which have

received no complaints for the

bright-green colour.

“We’ve previously had shops

on Wairakei Rd and Aldwins Rd

and never had comments about

the colours there either,” he said.

Ferrymead residents have been

successful in ousting a brightly

whiteware warehouse

coloured business from the area

before.

In 2007 the Mitre 10 Mega in

Ferrymead building attracted

complaints for featuring a

160m-long bright orange wall

that overlooked the conservation

wetland.

The company eventually

agreed to repaint the wall

silvery-white after local residents

threatened a boycott.

“I’m concerned that it’s a repeat

of the Mitre 10 controversy

where they went from bright orange.

I’m concerned people can’t

see past greys and browns. In a

seaside suburb a bright colour

can really add something,” Mr

Carpenter said.

Bright green will be the base

colour for the building which

will see blue, red and white

added before completion.

Mixed views on second tunnel

• By Annabelle Dick

THE IDEA of creating a second

tunnel between Christchurch

and Lyttelton has a community

board leader happy but

frustrated.

A report showed a second road

tunnel between Christchurch

and Lyttelton will be needed in

about 20 years

due to growth in

freight transport.

Lyttelton-Mt

Herbert Community

Board

chairwoman

Paula Smith said

it was about time

a second tunnel was looked at.

“There’s been a constant

increase in traffic as freight

volume increases and it creates

safety issues for people moving

through the town,” Ms Smith

said.

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch

chief executive Peter Davie said

a “guestimate” from an engineer

had put the cost of a second

tunnel in the region of $500

million and funding it would

probably fall to road control

authorities.

Mr Davie said the logical

thing would be for one tunnel

to serve port traffic, possibly

bypassing Norwich Quay in Lyttelton

and connecting directly to

the port.

“We need it as soon as possible

because for years the Lyttelton

residents have been asking to

get the heavy traffic off Norwich

Quay,” Ms Smith said.

Ms Smith was upset that a

second tunnel is only being

considered now as Sumner Rd is

being reopened to accommodate

freight traffic.

“They’re spending between

$40 and $60 million dollars to

reopen Sumner Rd as a freight

route which will only be used

by a few trucks and about less

than 300 cars a day. We couldn’t

believe it was approved because

it’s so shortsighted – it’s never

going to be a residential route,”

she said.

“Now it’s approved and underway

and they’re going to stuff

the landscape on this side

. . . only now they’re talking

about a freight tunnel? I can’t believe

it. Bring it on, we welcome

it – but why didn’t someone say

this earlier?,” Ms Smith said.

She said the Sumner Rd

reopening will help in the Lyttelton

Port’s reclamation at Te

Awaparahi Bay.

She said the excavation of

material on Sumner Rd will

be added to the extension the

company is doing to facilitate

ROADING NEED: A second tunnel from Christchurch to

Lyttelton will be needed in the next 20 years due to growing

freight going in and out of the port.

increased trade.

“They have managed to get the

ratepayer and taxpayer to underwrite

work that they would’ve

had to have done anyway to

achieve their long-term goal,”

she said.

New Zealand Transport

Agency director southern region

Jim Harland said the tunnel

still had significant capacity to

accommodate further growth in

traffic volumes before a solution

would be needed. Increasing the

use of rail to the port would also

help.

NZTA is expected to install

a deluge system in the tunnel

by the end of next year, involving

sprinklers which could be

activated in response to a vehicle

fire.

YOUR VIEWS

Spreydon resident Michael

J. Brathwaite writes in

response of Lyttelton Port

Company chief executive

Peter Davie’s call for

overpasses on Brougham St

to tackle congestion issues.

Regarding Peter Davie’s

suggestion of overpasses on

Brougham St, I think it is a good

idea as long as it doesn’t become

impossible to turn into it from

at least some of the side streets,

Durham St in particular.

However, when travelling

towards the port, the congestion

starts at the Collins St intersection,

where three lanes merge into

two, and an overpass will not resolve

that problem. Nor will such

ridiculous ideas as banning left

turns into Collins St or lowering

the speed limit there.

I notice the only sensible suggestions

about resolving the

congestion on Brougham St are

coming from people like Mr

Davie.

The traffic engineers have

obviously put it in the too hard

basket, and motorists like myself

are constantly having to protest

against the ludicrous suggestions

put forward by some of our local

body politicians.

SCIRT programme on the home straight

SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls is

almost complete and will finish in December.

Most of our repairs involve fixing the city’s underground pipe networks with only small

amount of our work focused on roads.

Our roading work largely involves fixing where we have dug down to repair and replace

the earthquake damaged pipes beneath. The result may look a little patchy but we repair

roads to a reliable and serviceable standard.

The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the

city's earthquake-damaged roads after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood

• The Durham Street overbridge repairs in Sydenham are scheduled to be

completed this month.

• Our work in Hoon Hay is now winding up.

• Repairs to the wastewater network in Spreydon are now complete.

• Fresh water, storm water and wastewater repairs in Cashmere are three-quarters of the

way through and are due to finish next month.

Former

personal

trainer John

Verd was

born in

Christchurch’s

sister city

Seattle,

United States, and

moved to New Zealand

in January last year. He

writes this week’s opinion

piece on fluoridation

I love Christchurch water!

It’s one of the many exceptional

things we’d heard about

the Garden City before moving

here.

So I was naturally concerned

to learn about proposed

changes to our water system.

I discovered at an early age

how location could affect

water quality.

When my grand-mother

moved to the Cascade Mountains

near Seattle, she said

that the tap water there had a

”sweetness” to it.

She was absolutely right -

there was a huge difference

between our aquifers in Spokane

and her spring water in

Snoqualmie.

It wasn’t until much later

that I paid any attention to

what is actually in our water.

I’d heard people protest

against fluoridation, but wrote

them off as paranoid conspiracy

theorists.

It wasn’t until becoming a

personal trainer that I actually

questioned the practice.

The research was eye opening.

Our water is being treated

with an industrial waste product

called hydrofluorosilicic

acid.

This chemical is a by-product

of the phosphate fertiliser

industry.

Although classified as hazardous

waste, it is barrelled up

and sold, unrefined, to communities

across the country.

This is the fluoride in public

water.

Former vice president and

senior chemist at the United

States Environmental Protection

Agency headquarters, Dr

William Hirzy, had this to say

about it:

“If this stuff gets out into

the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets

into the river, it’s a pollutant;

if it gets into the lake, it’s a

pollutant; but if it goes straight

into your drinking water system,

it’s not a pollutant. That’s

amazing.”

Hydrofluorosilicic acid is

far different from the sodium

fluoride, which is not for

ingestion, commonly used in

toothpaste.

This begs the question: Why

would they use this dangerous

form of fluoride? A likely

reason is cost.

Because it costs corporations

many thousands of dollars per

tonne to neutralise and dispose

of it, they instead sell it to

municipalities as a ‘product’.

Chemist and worldrenowned

fluoride researcher

Dr Paul Connett lectured in

Christchurch in July 2016.

He listed 50 human studies

finding that elevated fluoride

exposure is associated with

reduced IQ.

Christchurch has managed

to remain fluoride free for the

last 30 years, but new legislation

may allow for fluoridation

by 2018 unless the public

demands a place at the table in

this decision.

And that’s what is keeping

me up at night.

Do you, like John

Verd, stay awake at

night worried about

fluoridation? Should we

allow fluoridation of our

water? Share your views

Plenty of tips to living 107 years

She has lived through

two world wars, the

sinking of the Titanic

and Roald Amundsen

reaching the South

Pole – all without ever

leaving the South Island.

Reporter Tom Doudney

tells the story of Gladys

Hanson who recently

turned 107

HISTORY: Some of

the major events that

have occurred over the

course of Mrs Hanson’s

life include Roald

Amundsen reaching the

South Pole, the Titanic

sinking and two world

wars.

THE CASHMERE Rose Court

Retirement Village resident was

born Gladys Geary at Wickliffe

Bay, Portobello, Dunedin,

in 1909, two years before

Amundsen reached the pole,

three years before the Titanic

sank and five years before World

War 1 broke out.

As a young girl, she travelled

to Portobello Primary School by

horse and cart until she was old

enough to ride a horse.

After leaving school at 14, she

worked on the farm, milking

cows and thinning turnips.

She met her future husband,

Jack Hanson at a local dance and

they married in 1933 – a union

which would last 71 years until

Mr Hanson passed away in 2004,

aged 95.

SPECIAL OCCASION: Gladys Hanson received her third card

from the queen when she turned 107 recently. ​

Mrs Hanson’s daughter, Joyce

Findlay, said she put her mother’s

longevity down to a healthy

diet and lifestyle – Mrs Hanson

has never smoked, always eaten

plenty of fish and fresh vegetables

and has never been on any

long term medication.

“She has just lived a very quiet

lifestyle, she has never been a

social person at all. She was

always a homemaker and never

travelled.”

Her mother’s longest trip had

been when she moved from

Portobello, where Mr Hanson

and his brothers were fishermen,

to Christchurch in 1979.

After her husband’s death, Mrs

Hanson lived on her own, with

help from her daughters, until

she was 102.

A broken hip led to her move

to the retirement village, but she

still gets around using a walking

frame.

Her 104th birthday was

notable for the birth of Britain’s

Prince George on the same day

– something she was thrilled

about.

She received her third birthday

card from the queen this year,

having also received cards for

her 100th and 105th birthdays.

Although Mrs Hanson gave up

knitting a year ago, she still enjoys

Women’s Weekly, television

quiz programmes and chocolate.

She has two children, six

grandchildren and 10 greatgrandchildren.

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | AUGUST 2016

The changing shape of EQC

The Earthquake Commission’s work in

Canterbury is entering a new phase as

it settles the final earthquake claims for

the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes, says

EQC Chief Executive, Ian Simpson.

“Over the past few months we’ve been

looking closely at what remains to be

done and we will be carefully matching

the workforce to the work that still needs

completing.

As part of this, EQC has developed a

proposal on how EQC will be organised in

2017 to implement its work in Canterbury,

while continuing its national work.”

EQC began consultation with its staff

this week on a proposed smaller structure

for 2017.

“As we make changes over the next few

months, one thing isn’t changing: we will

retain a presence in Canterbury until we

have met our obligations to our customers.

The proposal is for an organisation with

383 positions from January 2017,” Mr

Simpson said.

The proposals for the new structure impact

the 868 EQC people on fixed term

employment agreements to December

2016 or on contracts for service.

Mr Simpson says the reduction in staff

numbers had been signalled to staff earlier

this year, with more detail given

at EQC staff update sessions in July.

He was grateful for the professionalism

of EQC staff; continuing to achieve key

milestones for Canterbury customers

during a time of change and personal

challenge.

By the end of the year, EQC’s target

is to have:

• completed all of the approximately

67,900 managed home repairs.

• settled all of the approximately 99,000

residential building claims scheduled for

first-time cash settlements.

• settled all of the more than 187,000

contents claims.

• settled green zone land claims for about

73,000 properties.

• resolved 75% of the remedial requests

we had on our books as at 30 June 2016

• cash settled 90% of the 3,118 drainage

claims we had received by 30 June

2016.

• cash settled the 13,985 damage claims

received following the series of quakes

in Canterbury between February and

June 2016.

Mr Simpson says that what remains to be

done in 2017,is to continue resolving

remedial requests on properties where

EQC has managed a repair, and continue

resolving drainage enquiries.

“The level of work left is of a much smaller

scale than the Canterbury Home Repair

Programme was designed for. We need

a smaller, fit-for-purpose approach to finish

the work,” Mr Simpson said.

“By 2017 we will have a new approach for

handling the remaining work, including

remedial requests. We’re working on the

details of this now, including talking to

Fletcher EQR. We hope we will have a

clearer picture around September,”

Mr Simpson said.

As at 31 July 2016:

• there were 238 substantive repairs left,

which we aim to have resolved by the

end of the year.

• there were 335 secondary repairs (such

as garages and chimneys) to do.

There is also a range of administrative and

financial tasks to be completed.

“I know it has not been an easy journey for

some EQC Canterbury customers. We

didn’t get everything right. I’m the first to

admit that. But EQC has worked hard to

learn from its mistakes and improve how

we work not just for Canterbury, but for all

New Zealand,” Mr Simpson said.

Outside of Canterbury, EQC needs to be

ready to respond to any future event and

continues negotiating and managing

natural disaster reinsurance for the country.

EQC will also continue settling the 5,000

to 8,000 natural disaster claims it receives

on average every year, funding research to

a tune of about $16 million annually, and

educating the public about natural hazards

and how to mitigate these.

Remedial requests

EQC has streamlined its process for handling new

remedial requests from customers received from

1 August, 2016.

EQC Chief Executive, Ian Simpson, says the new process

aims for faster resolution with customers having the

opportunity to provide information upfront and state their

preference for a cash settlement or a managed repair

where remedial work is required.

The changes have been introduced after positive

customer feedback on the process used to manage claims

from the February 2016 earthquake, where customers had

the opportunity to submit more information upfront to

enable quicker turnaround.

Many customers going through the February 2016 claims

management process are positive or very positive about

their experience. EQC is now using this approach for new

remedial requests, and customers will be asked to send in

information such as photographs and builders’ quotes.

Although cash settlement will provide a quicker

resolution, it may not suit everyone, Mr Simpson says.

“So if a customer prefers that a contractor do the work,

then EQC will arrange for that to happen. But EQC’s

Community Contact Team and independent customer

advocate groups will be available to support any cashsettled

customers who aren’t confident in sourcing their

own contractors,” he says.

Of the 5,720 open remedial requests, EQC has identified

approximately 1,500 properties that cannot be resolved

through a managed repair before 2017. The new process,

while largely designed for new remedial requests, will be

available to these customers and EQC will be making

contact with them from late August to ask if they prefer a

cash settlement or managed repair during 2017.

Customers wanting to discuss remedial requests can

contact EQC by phone 0800 DAMAGE (326 243) or email

info@eqc.govt.nz

Drainage

As at June 30 2016, EQC had 3,118 drainage damage

enquiries to be resolved. To ensure timely settlement of

these claims, EQC has introduced a panel of licenced

drain layers to identify earthquake damage.

On settlement, customers get a detailed assessment of

OFFERING THE GOODS: The Tannery complex specialises in food and fashion but owner Alasdair Cassels hopes to introduce an art gallery on-site soon.

Continued expansion at The Tannery

No job too big or small

• By Annabelle Dick

THE TANNERY is undergoing

a transformation introducing

a number of new retailers and

services to the complex.

While only $2 million has been

spent on additions, the precinct is

now home to a cinema and more

fashion outlets.

Tannery owner

Alasdair Cassels (right)

said there’s developments

either side of the atrium.

“Alice’s Deluxe Theatre

just opened two months

ago and there’s more

shops down the other

end,” Mr Cassels said.

A high-tech

200 sq m conference

room will open next week

specialising as a multi-function

event room.

Raw Nova will introduce a

menswear shop, Auckland-based

brand Nature Baby will move onto

the premises and Teepee will open a

new branch specialising in soap.

The new stores will take The

Tannery’s business count to 63

with still more work to go at the

complex.

“The south side is still being

developed and we’re talking to

a couple of different parties. I’d

like to see an art gallery there but

that may or may not happen,” Mr

Cassels said.

In spite of its Woolston location

he said being in the suburbs hasn’t

affected his business negatively.

“The south is actually quite a

large part of Christchurch with a

different culture than the rest of the

city,” he said.

The $20 million

boutique-style atrium is

known for fashion, gift

and homeware, design

and hospitality.

Mr Cassels believes

there are many places in

Christchurch that offer

low-quality products but

The Tannery is definitely

not one of them.

“We’re set up to buy

cheap imported goods that fall to

bits, but people like owning quality

products that last forever and that’s

where The Tannery is coming

from,” Mr Cassels said.

“We stand for quality, handmade,

locally sourced products

and I think that’s our strength.

Compared to other centres around

the city we focus on those values

and I think that’s to our advantage.”

Mr Cassels has no plans on

stopping the expansion and would

like to see The Tannery boast more

design and fashion stores in the

near future.

Old league club dumping ground

• By Andrew King

THE HEAD of a sheep

and household waste has

been cleared away from the

back of the former Linwood

rugby league clubrooms in

Phillipstown.

The building, located between

Olliviers Rd and Matheson Rd,

has been empty since the February

22, 2011, earthquake and has

been a dumping ground creating

what residents say, is a health

risk to surrounding properties.

Linwood rugby league spokesman

Mike O’Halloran said he

was disgusted to find the huge

amount of rubbish at the former

clubrooms.

“I organised someone to come

and take the rubbish away,” he

said.

A local YMCA group dragged

most of the rubbish into a big

pile before it was taken away last

week.

While a lot of the rubbish

has been removed a resident

said there was still a lot more

buried in the shrubs and bushes

that surround the back car park

– a badly damaged boat is still

in the middle of the car park

also.

It is that rubbish, he believes,

is attracting rats and mice whose

populations were growing to

“plague-like levels.”

City council principal adviser

of regulatory compliance Fiona

Proudfoot said it is currently investigating

a complaint about the

property from June in relation to

the pest problem.

“The council does investigate

and take action where necessary

in situations where rubbish has

been dumped that may attract or

harbour vermin,” she said.

However, because the property

is in private ownership she said it

is the owners who are responsible

for the property.

Linwood league sold the

property to an investor with the

finalisation of that deal expected

in the next few weeks.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Should

more be done to prevent

further dumping on unused

properties in the city? Share

your views with us. Email

clubrooms but

there is still

RED CROSS

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.

Caring, gentle dentists

put patients at ease

A beautiful smile makes all the difference when you first

meet someone, whether it is in a business setting or at a

social gathering. That is why choosing the right dentist is an

important decision.

The caring team of experienced dentists team at Smile

Concepts provide painless treatment. Plus, the personal

touch they offer by taking time to go over all your treatment

options and associated costs means those who fear a dental

surgery will be immediately put at ease.

Smile Concepts is proud of its patient service. Their

knowledgeable staff members use safe and proven

procedures, the latest technology, materials and philosophies

to enhance your teeth and smile. They also actively engage

with their customers and take regular feedback. For example,

in recent months, customers complained about earthquakerelated

shaking at the surgery. Taking these complaints

seriously, they have now moved to

their newly renovated premises with

new repelling of the foundations at 104

Colombo Street, Sydenham, where ample

parking is available and the bus stop is

close by.

Smile Concepts welcomes customers from across

Canterbury, and with the variety of services offered as well as

a compassionate, patient-centered approach, it is well worth

driving the extra mile.

They provide dental care services for children and

adolescents with special needs, and sedation dentistry so

patients can undergo treatment without anxiety. General

dentistry services include regular checkups, fillings, crowns,

dentures, root treatment and extractions. With their

emphasis on preventative dentistry, they recommend regular

checkups to eliminate any major problems occurring.

No longer should smiles have gaps where teeth used to

be. Implants, veneers and bridges can be crafted and fitted

so they look natural, are long-lasting and a perfect match.

They also have a dental hygienist, who will help to keep gums

healthy and advise on healthy oral habits.

Some food, drink and medicines can stain our teeth over

time and teeth whitening has become one of the most soughtafter

cosmetic dental procedures today. Smile Concepts offers

the Zoom whitening system, which is currently one of the

most powerful, effective and safest methods available on the

market.

Perhaps the one day in our lives when our smile means

the most is our wedding day. This innovative dental practice

offers wedding packages individually tailored to your needs

to make sure your wedding photographs do you justice. As a

special gift to brides and grooms, Smile Concepts will create a

wedding package at a special price.

Their generosity doesn’t stop with their customers. Smile

Concepts is proud to work with the local community,

supporting initiatives such as Child Safety Awareness

Programmes, the Special Children’s Christmas Party and is a

regular donor to the University of Canterbury Foundation.

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of dampness

in your house

noW WITH the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways to

make their homes comfortable, warm and healthy

for their families throughout winter. rISIng

DAMP is an issue that affects many of our

older properties which suffer from poor, or no,

insulation. In Canterbury especially, post-quake,

many people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated with

health problems. Independent tests have shown

that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the

ground and enter a house every day, leading to

mildew, mould, condensation and musty smells.

Moulds can produce various allergic reactions

and the frail, elderly and very young are especially

vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally

owned and operated firm. The team understands

the problems caused by rising damp and are

there to help. They will come to your damp home

and pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete

under your timber floored home. Specially

adapted for our new Zealand conditions and

applications it provides a layer of protection

against rising moisture. An unexpected benefit

that the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete

have noticed recently, is that many owners

of properties which had underfloor foam

concrete installed, reported that it also provided

protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd

now for your free, no obligation quote and

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor

ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or 0508

362626 for more information.

To enSure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can calculate

the required air exchange for your building

requirement. Smooth-Air offers a wide range of

ventilation equipment, from air vents to ducting

for fans, for both the commercial and domestic

markets. They have an extensive range of fans

and ventilation components in-store but they

can also provide innovative solutions tailored to

differing requirements.

VenTILATIon

This includes both the exchange of air to the

outside as well as circulation of air within the

building. It is one of the most important factors

for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in

buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In case

of poor or insufficient air intake from outside,

the oxygen content decreases, humidity and

dustiness levels increase. If exhaust ventilation

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

smells, humidity and harmful substances are not

removed.

Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes

stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel

drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like a

high content of dust and tobacco smoke are

harmful and can cause various diseases. even

bad smells can cause discomfort or irritate the

nervous system. In summer, it’s easy to open

windows for cross ventilation, however as winter

approaches, we start to shut up out houses to

trap in the heat and as a result, air quality can

decline.

It is therefore very important to ensure good

air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

SOUTHERN VIEW

Tackle the skifield road in an Alltrack

• By Ross Kiddie

STAR MEDIA, the company

which I am employed by,

embraces advertising creativity.

We strive for layout and design

which captures reader and viewer

interest. That being the case, I

was mystified when Volkswagen

New Zealand’s recent television

advertising campaign was

withdrawn when some viewers

complained to the Broadcasting

Standards Authority.

The commercial surrounded

Volkswagen’s Passat Alltrack, and

was a light-hearted take involving

a person falling over backwards

on a slippery boat launching

ramp. That ad often had me

smiling when I was preparing

dinner and watching the news. I

was disappointed – world gone

mad – I thought.

That aside, the Alltrack is an

interesting variation on the popular

mid-size wagon and as its

name suggests it has four-wheeldrive

and suspension raised

27mm from the standard Passat.

Volkswagen is no stranger to

this concept, they have long had

models which have just that little

bit extra in terms of ability. The

Alltrack is a cross between an

everyday vehicle and one which

will take you off-road, not so

much in the serious stuff, but it

will get you out of a sticky, low

grip situation, hence the advertisement.

And on that subject, it

also gets a 2.2-tonne tow rating,

so hauling that large boat is a

real probability.

Under the bonnet sits a 2-litre,

turbocharged diesel engine. The

four-cylinder, twin camshaft unit

is rated with 150kW and 400Nm,

the latter punching out its power

all of the way from 1900rpm

to 3300rpm; consequently, it is

a strong, energetic unit which

works through a dual clutch,

direct shift gearbox.

The six-speeder allows the

engine to work freely, between

the two, drive is unimpeded,

the mid-range diesel surge is

evident. Unladen, the Passat

Alltrack will scamper to

100km/h from a standstill in

8sec, and will launch to 120km/h

from 80km/h in 5sec, the turbo

boost offering vivid acceleration.

And that is the beauty with

the big four-cylinder diesels,

there is a lot of grunt on offer,

and it’s no wonder Volkswagen

are confident of high tow

capacity.

Perhaps the most exciting figures

are those of its fuel usage.

Volkswagen claim a 5.2-litre per

100km/h (54mpg) combined

cycle average, that sits well with

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT ALLTRACK: Grip for slippery surfaces.

the 6.6l/100km (43mpg) figure

showing constantly on the dash

panel readout. At 100km/h the

engine sips fuel at the rate of an

amazing 4l/100km (70mpg) with

the engine turning over slowly at

just 1700rpm.

These results are extraordinary

for a big vehicle and certainly

serve to prove how effective diesel

engine manufacturers have

become in terms of efficiency.

I took the test car on the twists

and turns of the Port Hills. It

was only a few weeks ago that I

evaluated the standard Passat,

and was keen to find out if the

extra ride height affected the

Alltrack’s handling ability. I can

report there’s is little noticeable

difference, grip is well promoted

through Continental sport tyres

(245/45 x 18in), while steerage

and body balance are accurate

and controlled respectively.

Of course the suspension

is fully independent and

there is a lot of travel within

those elements; that being the

case, bumps and ruts are well

absorbed and ride comfort has

been given high priority.

I didn’t take the Alltrack offroad

as such, but I did take it

through a short cross-country

track in an endeavour to get

some photos. The suspension

absorbs the uneven surfaces

beautifully, and wheel-to-ground

contact is manufactured so that

• Price – VW Passat Alltrack,

$57,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4777mm; width, 1832mm;

height, 1506mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1968cc, 140kW, 400Nm,

six-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8sec

• Fuel usage – 5.2l/100km

utmost traction is gleaned.

I can see the Alltrack being

used as winter sport recreational

transport such as tackling the

skifield access road. It’s a vehicle

that does all the things a typical

sport utility vehicle is capable of,

yet it is packaged in a more traditional

style.

The entire in-cabin area is

manufactured for comfort and is

decked out with all the features

you’d expect from a $57,990 car.

I’ve long embraced the

traditional station wagon,

especially those from Europe.

The Alltrack takes that concept

one step forward and I’m pleased

that it has such a strong foothold

globally (no pun intended). I’ll

be watching with interest how

well it is received here.

Topic is death

Local musician, Dizzy Height is proud to

announce the completion of his latest

recording, Passing Shadows.

“It's safe to say that this album is very,

very different and deals with a topic not

many are game to talk about let alone record

an album about, and that is the subject of

death,” says Dizzy Height. “Having worked

as an Embalmer/Funeral Director for 9

years I have seen a lot of death. The

inspiration for the album is based on my

many experiences.”

Consisting of nine tracks, the recording is

said to be a very thought provoking and

inspiring CD.

Written, performed, and produced by

Dizzy Height, the tracks feature a unique

blend of classically inspired pieces infused

with traditional rock guitar.

From the opening title track 'Passing

Shadows' to the final track 'After Life' the

album has a positive theme which

encompasses all the things that most people

have thought about at some stage.
