DELAYED: The historic Risingholme Community Centre has not been used since suffering earthquake damage five years ago. Repairs are under way but

fire-related issues have delayed work.


Fire-related issues delay

repairs to Risingholme

• By Annabelle Dick

THE REBUILD of fire

and earthquake-damaged

Risingholme Community Centre

has been delayed due to repair

issues.

The removal of fire damaged

parts of the building combined

with designs that have yet to be

completed, means the city council

can no longer confirm when

work will start.

The Opawa building was

damaged during the February

22, 2011, earthquake and has

been out of use because it needed

extensive repairs.

The building was further

damaged after a suspected arson

attack on June 6.

The city council confirmed in

July it will rebuild the heritage

facility.

Earthquake repair work was

due to be completed by July next

year and fire damage repaired by

March 2018.

But city council staff say difficulties

arose as new fire-related

issues were uncovered.

“Contractors have been concentrating

on mould removal,

clearing the fire damaged portions

and working on the design

for the fire remediation,” city

council manager capital delivery

community Darren Moses said.

The fire spread through

the roof and top storey of the

152-year-old building, causing

so much damage that part of the

upstairs has had to be deconstructed.

At the time of the fire, the city

council was planning to tender

out the earthquake strengthening

and repair work.

Due to the fire, tendering

was pushed back to September

but the centre is still yet to be

tendered.

“The homestead applications

will be filed once the detailed

designs for both earthquake

damage and fire damage have

been completed,” Mr Moses

said.

The hall designs have been

completed, but staff are making

changes for a new toilet and

bathroom layout.

That’s also delayed the physical

work which was expected to start

next month.

“A new date will be supplied

once the latest design changes

The fire and earthquake

insurance issues have been kept

separate and the fire repairs are

expected to be done at a later

date in March 2018.

The centre had been insured

for $5 million.

Before the building was damaged

it was used for a range

of community education and

school programmes.

The building is currently being

wrapped to protect the structure

from the elements before construction

begins.

the extent of the damage caused

during the suspected arson attack

in June is becoming clear (front

It is an absolute shame that

this grand old building, built 152

only earthquake damage, but

suspected arson as well. Let’s hope

that the city council can resolve

the issues so we can see the building

rise again.

Special place for community

Rebuilt in just six months, St

Martins Community Centre

opened yesterday after being

destroyed in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

The rebuild took about $1

million and was completed in

six months, built on the site

of the demolished voluntary

library on the corner of Wades

Ave and Wilsons Rd.

The single-storey community

centre has a brick-lined hallway,

with the St Martins Voluntary

Library now re-established

within it plus a spacious community

hall.

Heritage from the old St Martins

Voluntary Library has also

been incorporated into the new

building.

This includes a 1920s clock

that hung in the original

voluntary library and bricks

salvaged from a house in

Hackthorne Rd.

High pitched ceilings and

glass sliding doors at either end

of the community hall allow

light to flood the room and

make it a welcoming space.

For smaller gatherings, the

room can be split into two.

Plus Architecture designed

the community centre and

Hawkins Special Projects led the

construction work.

manager Darren Moses said it

was a modern multifunctional

space that can cater for a wide

range of activities.

Mr Moses said the new community

centre had a residential

feel to fit into the neighbourhood

and incorporated a number

of eco features, including

solar panels on the roof and a

rainwater harvesting system.

“We’ve blended old and new

to create something special for

the people of St Martins,’’ Mr

Moses said.

Councillor Tim Scandrett said

it was great to have a new home

for the much-valued St Martins

Voluntary Library.

“There’s been a community

presence on the site where the

new community centre sits for

close to 90 years so it’s a great to

be able to add to that history,”

he said.

FLAME FILES

Long week for firefighters

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

RefeRReal eye cases

Recently

Dr Steve Heap examined 20 week old

Beagle puppy called “Penny”, who

presented as a referral with a painful,

partially closed right eye. Penny had

unfortunately been scratched in the eye

by a slightly grumpy older resident cat.

Steve diagnosed a cataract in this eye,

with phacouveitis and serous glaucoma all

in a little puppy. Glaucoma is when there

is increased intraocular pressure causing

pain and discomfort. Steve had discussed

with the owners that this right eye had a

hopeless prognosis for vision. Topical eye

medications were instigated to control

the pain and inflammation and rising

pressure in the eye. Steve also discussed

that if these medications didn’t hold this

condition, Penny’s eye would need to be

enucleated. Pretty quickly it was noticed

that the right eye had deteriorated

beyond medical therapy. Enucleation (

removal) of the eye and placement of an

intrascleral prosthesis ( glass bead eye)

was surgically undertaken to relieve Penny

from a life of medication and pain.

The surgery was a success and 4 weeks

on, Penny is a happy, active, normal wee

puppy with a prosthetic right eye and

normal vision out of the left eye.

Another interesting ophthalmology case

for Dr Steve Heap came from the SPCA.

A 5 month old stray sneezing kitten was

examined by Steve and found to have

no lateral upper eyelids in both the left

and right eyes, a condition called Bilateral

Upper Lateral Eyelid Agenisis. As a result

the eyes were

sore, dry and

constantly irritated

by hair rubbing

on the cornea

(the sensitive clear

window of the

eye).

Steve trialled

lubricants

and antibiotic

ointments in the eyes in the hope

the eyes would be comfortable long

term, but this wasn’t the case. The kitten

was taken to surgery and Steve carefully

and intricately created upper eyelids

by harvesting strips of skin taken from

below the lower lids. All in all a successful

outcome for this wee kitten who will

be rehomed and avoid a lifetime of

medication.

HELP: People were evacuated from Kaikoura on a

RNZAF NH90 and taken to Woodend.

Fire risk management

officer Mark Thomas

talks about the

impact of last week’s

7.8 magnitude

earthquake

It felt like deja vu all over

again just after midnight

last Monday morning as

the shaking that woke me

went on, and on, and on.

Since then, it’s become

clear that Christchurch

has dodged most of the

consequences of the 7.8

magnitude quake. Which

is just as well.

I’m not sure that those

still suffering from six

years of earthquakerelated

stress would be able

to handle starting all over

again.

Part of the heroic stoicism

being shown by the

people of Kaikoura can be

attributed to the fact this

level of destruction is new

for them. They are going

to need every bit of help

the rest of us in the region

can provide in the next few

years.

In Christchurch on

the night, a couple of fire

alarm systems malfunctioned

and the seaside

brigades of Sumner, Governors

Bay and Diamond

Harbour spent time evacuating

vulnerable people in

those hours that a tsunami

was a possibility.

Otherwise, the city was

largely spared. Our Regional

Command Centre

at Kilmore St has been

operating 24/7 this week

to support our brigades in

the affected areas.

Firefighters and Urban

Search And Rescue teams

from Christchurch were

flown to relieve the exhausted

Kaikoura brigade.

Others have gone to

Waiau.

Elsewhere our national

headquarters in Wellington

has been evacuated

until the building

is cleared as sound and

firefighters there have

been involved in that city’s

earthquake and weather

issues.

Not a great week for

New Zealand.

Not all pets with enucleated eyes need to

have prosthetics placed. Steve will often

enucleate an eye and then stitch the lids

together. This ends up cosmetically looking

fine. Due to Penny’s very young age, her

owners felt a prosthetic eye would look

more pleasing on their cute wee pup.

This cute owl was bought into Steve

recently due to opacities noted on its

corneas affecting its’ ability to see clearly.

Steve isn’t sure of the cause but is trialling

antibiotic drops as he suspects an

infective cause.

Airport helps out community groups

COMMUNITY groups around

the city have received a helping

hand from the Christchurch

International Airport to

continue their work in the city.

Nine community groups received

grants from the Christchurch

Airport Community Fund.

The groups included 180

Degrees Trust, Birthright Canterbury

Trust, Christchurch Cathedral

Choir, City Parks Community

Patrol, DrugARM Trust,

Halswell Hall Inc, Listen! Our

Voices Count, Oak Development

Trust and Papanui-Merivale

Plunket.

The airport’s chief aeronautical

and commercial officer Justin

Watson said the fund is made

of coins dropped into collections

boxes around the airport

terminal.

“We collect the money and

convert the foreign currencies –

as many as 14 at a time – then

top up the money with a sizeable

donation of our own, to support

our communities – especially

those which have viable projects

under way but not enough funding

to complete them,” he said.

Mr Watson said the latest

hall, and a group whose

180 Degrees Trust spokesman

Jeremy Nurse said the grant will

help support the city’s at risk

youth.

“These young people are referred

to 180 through the youth

justice system and mentor them,

with a focus on using outdoor

activities to increase physical

and mental fitness,” he said.

He said the grant will help pay

for weekly activities which give

vulnerable youth confidence and

social skills.

Oak Development Trust manager

Carol Renouf says the grant

will help the Korean welfare

support team, which works with

Korean migrants.

“We have two social workers,

themselves Korean migrants

who help fellow migrants negotiate

the health and welfare

system, and who have until now

been volunteers. This grant will

mean we can cover some of their

costs,” she said.

Mr Watson said the nine

were chosen from a record number

of applicants.

He said they all demonstrated

outreach activities into

Christchurch communities,

as well as sincere concern and

caring for the people they work

with.

Pool to

open on

Saturday

RESIDENTS WILL have to wait

until this weekend before they

can use the Woodham Park

paddling pool.

The pool in Woodham Rd will

open on Saturday, making it the

last of all city council-operated

outdoor pools to open for the

summer season.

The pool will have a brand

new look though – with a

marine-themed mural painted

on the bottom of it.

It was originally planned that

the city’s paddling pools would

open at Show Weekend, but wet

and windy spring weather has

caused delays.

City council western area

recreation manager Nigel Cox

said previously the pools were

painted each year before opening

for the summer months, but

this year the old paint has been

stripped back and they are being

covered with a non-slip resinbased

paint that will last for 10

years.

This coating needs to dry

thoroughly to be fully effective

and if it is applied in windy conditions

it can be contaminated

by dust or pollen.

Our People

Life in the fast lane captured in book

Mike Sinclair has lived such an interesting life

that local author Kerry Swanson wrote a book

on it. The 64-year-old spent 26 years tinkering

with grand prix winning motor-cycles with ‘King’

Kenny Roberts. Fraser Walker-Pearce talked to

him and Mr Swanson

You’ve managed to get this book

Mike Sinclair – King Kenny’s

Spanner Man written about you

Mike. It’s 330 pages, how have

you managed that?

Yes, I know it’s pretty big. It’s an

indication of about 26 years in the

professional motor-biking arena.

So were you born riding motor

bikes or did you grow into it?

No not really, my family doesn’t

have a background of motor

bike riding, I just got an interest

when I was 10 or 11, my mother

bought me a plastic model and

that was it, motor bikes were

for me. And from then on I was

always out of school as quick as

I could be to get on the bike and

on the race track. I raced here in

Christchurch and won the 250cc

national championship in 1972,

but then I got more into the mechanical

side of things, more than

the riding.

Did riding ever take you to

overseas competitions and

races?

At that time you could buy basically

a grand prix level bike and

go and race in the world championships

and be competitive. So

quite a lot of the Christchurch

guys were doing things like that.

One of my mates was at that level

and went off to Europe in 1976

and I went off to help him.

Were you his pit crew at that

stage?

Yes kind of. In those days it was

just the two of you if you were

lucky, otherwise you’d be doing

everything yourself. I did 1974

on the same basis with another

Christchurch rider. We did the

United States season in ’74 and

then onto the European season

in ’76. From that I got to meet a

few of the world’s fastest guys in

a competition in Christchurch,

sponsored by Marlboro, and was

therefore known all around the

world. Through that we got to

know all the fastest guys at

the time.

So it was a bit of a

world circuit?

Yes, it was a bit. The

major manufacturers

would also bring their

best bikes of the time

to race them. So we

had quite an advanced

racing community

so we could

test ourselves against

the best really. I built

a few good bikes

and got noticed

and so next minute

I was working for

these American

guys in the world

championships, which

started off what I

thought would be a

one maybe two-year

adventure turned into

about 25 years of work.

So you went from working

here and there building fast

bikes in Christchurch to working

for some of the world’s best

in America?

Yes, effectively. And it wasn’t

one of these things that you

can just learn from a book or

something; there was no instruction

manual, just learning from

mistakes. I was working mostly

with American riders and their

experimental bikes. We won three

world titles in that time, and a big

stack of grands prix on some of

the bikes I was looking after.

Where are you from then?

I was born in Taihape and

shifted down here because dad

grew up here after the war and

then all over the place.

And what was your favourite

subject at school?

My interests were kind of elsewhere,

I was a bit of a schoolboy

dreamer. I always knew who was

leading in Europe and that kind

SPANNER MAN: Author Kerry Swanson (left) and Mike Sinclair collaborated on the new

book Mike Sinclair – King Kenny’s Spanner Man.

of thing. That’s where I wanted to

be. I started in a car spare parts

shop while I was still at school

and then as soon as I could I

was into the motor bikes. I had

some good help from some good

people to get me where I am.

People tell me that you were

in effect ahead of the game with

your mechanical knowledge of

bikes. Why is that? What did

you do?

Well the first bike I had I always

kept notes on its performance.

Whenever I modified it somehow

I was always checking its performance.

What I did to it and how

it affected its performance, that

kind of thing. I’ve still got my

notebooks from when I was 16.

You must look at some and

just say what was I thinking?

Yes, absolutely! I figured out

pretty early that it was an information

game and the team with

the most information would

usually win.

How did you end up in South

New Brighton?

I’ve lived all around the show

but for a long time I wasn’t in

New Zealand, just living wherever

the races were. Initially for my

young family and I, we actually

lived in caravans by the race

track. That was the style back

then. They called it the continental

circus.

So who is Kenny Roberts to

you?

In terms of motor bike racing

he was a huge innovator, he transferred

an American style to Europe,

and he was able to generate

sponsorship and money for his

own team. He used the money to

develop the bikes he was racing,

that’s how he kept ahead of the

game. He’s one of these racers that

people refer to as the GOAT – the

Greatest Of All Time. People have

different ideas about who’s the

best but Kenny was definitely one

of them for a lot of people. He

was an American dirt track racer

who switched to road racing,

which is a huge change.

And you were working for

him at the time?

Yes, working on the bikes and

that kind of thing. I also took

a position on his team after he

finished racing.

How old are you?

I’m 64, very soon to be a pensioner!

And what other hobbies

do you have?

I’m quite into my

windsurfing. I make

boards and fins and

all my own stuff

really. I’m part of a

worldwide speed

sailing group as

well. You basically

just go sailing

somewhere with a

GPS system, and

send the data over

to a team in Holland,

who give you a

worldwide ranking.

You just do your

thing and see

how fast you go,

really.

How many

people are you

competing

against?

I think it’s about 4000 across

the world. Quite a lot. There’s

nowhere in New Zealand that is

particularly quick – there needs

to be flat water with a lot of wind

which is hard to find.

How did you get into windsurfing?

A lot of the guys I used to race

with now also do windsurfing

because in a way it’s the same

physics. Leaning into corners and

trying to get to a certain point as

quick as you can.

Would you say you’re a bit of a

speed demon?

No, no. I’m too old to be a

speed demon now.

Have you got family in South

New Brighton with you?

Yes, my daughter is there and

my two grand daughters. My

son is up in Auckland now, he’s a

musician and an IT man.

Keas vie for nines title

• By Gordon Findlater

THE LINWOOD Keas will

have one of its key players

available for this weekend’s

Queenstown Nines Carnival.

Matthew Sauni has been

given the all-clear by the

Warriors – who he has been

training with this month – to

represent his Christchurch

club.

The explosive centre has

been in Auckland with the

Warriors after an impressive

club and representative

campaign saw him sign a

pre-season contract with the

NRL side.

The Keas have the majority

of its Pat Smith Trophy

winning team available for

the tournament and will be

led by regular coach Andrew

Auimatagi.

“We’re definitely going

down there to try and take it

out, but it’s also a great way

to end our year. We’ve got a

group of around 30 heading

down, including supporters

and staff, so it will just be

cool to get away and enjoy

each others company,” said

Auimatagi.

This will be the first time

the Keas have competed in the

league carnival, which is now

in its second year. This year’s

Pat Smith Trophy winners will

take on the Hornby Panthers

in its first game of the carnival

tournament. The game will be

a rematch of the Canterbury

Rugby League grand-final.

The Panthers finished runner

up to the Keas in the club

competition but will look to

defend its Queenstown Nines

title after winning the inaugural

event last year.

This year’s carnival will

feature 10 teams, including

Christchurch clubs, the Keas,

Panthers and Riccarton

Knights. After missing out on

registration last year, the Keas

are excited about the Queenstown

tournament.

“We’ve been together since

the end of October for some

touch and conditioning

games. We’ve concentrated

on the nines game a bit more

over the last couple of weeks.

The fundamentals are still the

same in the nine-man game.

Generating good ruck speed

and winning that area is really

important,” said Auimatagi.

The Queenstown Nines

Carnival will take place

on Saturday. The Keas will

play the Panthers, Kia Toa

Tigers, Tumeke Natives and

Invercargill Cooks in pool

play.

Test your sense of adventure

Whether it is mountain

biking, walking, thrill

seeking or coffee,

Christchurch Adventure

Park aims to offer

something for everyone.

Bridget Rutherford

reports

FIVE YEARS ago, Canadian

leisure developer Select

Evolution was keen to build a

new adventure park.

It searched the United

Kingdom, Europe, and even

Queenstown and Auckland, to

no avail.

But in 2011, Christchurch

mountain biker Tim Prebble was

sitting on a chairlift next to a

woman at Whistler Blackcomb –

a mountain bike park in British

Columbia.

The woman was working at the

park as a coach.

But not only did she work

there, she was one of the brains

behind it – Select Evolution

chairwoman Fiona Sutton.

Mr Prebble suggested Select

should develop a similar adventure

park in Christchurch, but

she told him there was nowhere

suitable.

But Mr Prebble knew just the

OPENING SOON: Select Evolution programme developer Darron Charity in front of the chairlift.

place – a 364ha forest block,

owned by McVicar Holdings Ltd

between Dyers Pass, Worsleys

and Summit Rds.

Just 17min from the city centre,

it connected to some of the

existing mountain bike tracks

in the Port Hills, and had the

perfect valley to install a chairlift

and zip lines.

Within three months Ms Sutton

visited the site.

“One thing led to another,”

Select Evolution programme

developer Darron Charity said.

But fate and a bit of luck

weren’t the only things that

brought the development to

Christchurch.

“It took a hell of a lot of hard

work to get it across the line,” he

said.

When phase one of the

Christchurch Adventure Park is

completed in December it will

be the largest of its kind in the

Southern Hemisphere.

To date it has cost $25 million.

The Government and

city council’s Development

Christchurch each contributed

$2 million, while the remaining

funding had come from a bank

loan, New Urban Group, and investment

from the United States,

Singapore and New Zealand.

at new Port Hills leisure park

“We’ll have to go to market

to secure funding for the next

phase,” Mr Charity said.

He said the developers,

manufacturers and contractors

had crammed 20 months of work

into eight, just to get the park

open as a Christmas present for

Christchurch.

There could be up to 150

contractors on site each day,

while there were another 100

people working on it off site, he

said.

Construction began in April,

and already, the early bird season

pass tickets have sold out.

More tickets aimed at casual

users and families will be

released this month.

What’s more is the park is on

schedule and on budget, he said.

“We set a budget four years ago

and we’re still delivering on it. It’s

extremely tight.”

The majority of the new tracks

had been carved – some with

diggers, but the more technical

ones have been built by hand,

with the help of volunteers armed

with shovels and rakes.

Each jump has been designed

by engineers.

The 8km green track has a

gradient of about 3-4 per cent,

while the 5km blue track is about

5-6 per cent.

FITS IN: The cafe and bar is being built by Amalgamated Builders out of douglas fir – the same timber as the trees that surrounds it.

The hardest – the 5km black

track – is where the jumps are

introduced and is for more

experienced riders.

Riders from the age of seven

can have a go at mountain biking

at the park, and a track will be

installed for under five-year-olds

next to the cafe.

Mr Charity said the park

would get more people outdoors

and into the sport.

There would be 16 coaches at

the park, and mountain bikes

and safety equipment could be

hired, he said.

“This is a sport progression

park.”

But it’s not just for mountain

and downhill biking.

There is also a walking track,

you could enjoy a coffee or a

drink at the cafe and bar, not to

mention the activities for thrill

seekers.

Four dual zip lines have been

installed in different parts of the

park – with one being 180m off

the ground.

At 1.8km, the electric-powered

chairlift will be the largest in

New Zealand, with the ability

to hold 56 chairs at any one

time. At the top, it will be 450m

high. People will be able to ride

the chairlift to get to the top of

the park, where they can either

use the tracks to come down,

head up to the Summit Rd, or

ride the zip lines down.

Four people could fit in each

chair, with a stand for them to

park their bikes in.

Mr Charity said the douglas fir

trees below the chairlift had to

be cut down before a drone was

used to take footage of the route.

It was then sent over to

Austrian manufacturer

Doppelmayr, which built the

towers before shipping them to

Lyttelton, he said.

Mr Charity said contractors

spent three months doing

concrete work in preparation

for the tower installation, which

took a month. At the entrance

to the park, three douglas fir

timber buildings sit amongst the

forestry, housing the ticketing

reception, the hire facilities and a

cafe and bar, which could seat up

to 180 people.

Mr Charity said the cafe

and bar would stock local

produce and drinks, including

Cassels and Sons Brewery beer

and wine from Black Estate,

Waipara.

“It has to feel like

Christchurch,” he said.

Hello

Smart new salon offers ‘fabulous’

styling & breath of fresh air

A smart new hairdressing business

with an intriguing name has opened at

the Cracroft shops in Cashmere Road.

Hair stylist Rebecca Wilson took over

the premises just over two months ago,

naming her new salon 50 Shades of

Fabulous.

“When I was trying to decide on

a name I ran a competition on my

Facebook page. One of my friends came

up with an idea, which I liked, but it

was already being used so I changed

it slightly and it became 50 Shades of

Fabulous,” Rebecca says.

The salon itself has been completely

redecorated, and now features the

crisp, contemporary look of fresh white

walls with bright splashes of colour and

smart black salon equipment.

“I wanted to create a friendly, happy

environment for clients, so they enjoy

being here and leave feeling like they’ve

had a breath of fresh air,” Rebecca says.

Working in the salon with Rebecca

is Jessica Braam, who rents a chair and

Stylists Jessica Braam, left, and Rebecca

Wilson, and salon assistant Lily

operates as Hair by Jessica. The two

stylists complement each other, offering

their clients cutting, colouring, blow

waves, foils and hair-ups, and catering

for all ages and style preferences.

Prices range from $35 for a cut

and blow wave, with colour and foils

priced from $60. They use professional

hair-care products by

L’Oreal including the

innovative new Pro Fiber

hair repair system, which

is specifically designed to

repair damaged hair, and

can also be purchased by

clients to use at home.

As a special opening offer,

all new clients that book an

appointment for a cut and colour

with either Rebecca or Jessica

before Christmas will receive

a free bottle of Root Rescue by

L’Oreal. Sprayed on over grey

areas at the roots, it will extend

the life of your colour before you

need to have a full colour done

again.

To book an appointment with

Rebecca, phone 338 9474 or go to the

50 Shades of Fabulous Facebook page;

to book an appointment with Jessica,

call or text 027 829 7850, or go to her

Adventure park set to open next month

•From page 11

There will eventually be 235 car

parks, and the entire park will be

smoke-free.

Mr Charity said phase two

would see the construction of a

1.5km mountain coaster, a luge

on a track which would travel

up to 80km/h. The New York

designers visited recently to plan

it.

That is expected to be completed

by December, 2017.

The village is also part of phase

two, which eventually would

have 282 beds.

Mr Charity said they hoped

to host school camps, and could

teach students about the forest

and ecology, along with groups

wanting to do team-building

exercises.

The benefit the park would

have on the city’s economy was

a huge driver for the project, he

said.

“We’ve always seen this as a

major boost for New Zealand

tourism. It attracts the overnight

stay in Christchurch,” he said.

It is expected to bring another

30,000 bed-nights to Christchurch,

he said.

The park would also employ

between 100 and 120 staff, most

of them local.

BIG JOB: Construction of Christchurch Adventure Park began in April after about four years of

planning.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

In the future, they hoped to

bring international mountain

and downhill races to Christchurch.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said the

project would set Christchurch

apart as a great place to visit, and

live.

“It really fits the city’s image

in terms of sport and recreation

from mountain to sea.”

She said it needed an extraordinary

commitment to deliver the

project in a short space, however,

it had been four years of trying to

pull it together.

“Fiona told me that when

she felt they weren’t getting the

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

investment, she’d go and sit at the

site and say it has to happen and

now it’s a reality.”

Downhill mountain biker Lachlan

Cruickshank said the park

was one of the reasons he moved

to Christchurch, and he had already

snapped up a season pass.

“It is going to be one of the

best bike parks in the Southern

Hemisphere and could develop

Christchurch into a real mecca of

the sport going forward.”

Mr Charity said Select Evolution

had a 50-year lease for the

land, and it hoped to continue to

develop more of it.

“There’s at least 120km of track

that we can develop in here.

There’s so much scope.”

He said it was a “legacy project”

and as a cyclist himself,

was looking forward to riding it

rather than working on it.

“I didn’t expect to be working

100-hour weeks. But to see the

park come to life is always a

dream. It’s exceeded my expectations

in what it’s become.”

• Christchurch Adventure

Park will have its official

opening on December 16. It

will be open from 10am-8pm

in summer, and 10am-5pm in

winter.

Halswell hairdresser proud of True Grit team

TRUE GRIT Hair owner

Jacqui Victor, of Halswell, can

claim to be a cut above the

rest after her salon won a top

award.

The central city business

was named Salon of the Year

at the Kitomba New Zealand

Association of Registered

Hairdressers’ Business

Awards.

Mrs Victor celebrated with

her team as they took out the

national award and collected

another three titles along the

way – the Grand Salon of the

Year, Excellence in Marketing

and Best Salon Design.

Looking back over the past

six years, Mrs Victor and

her team have endured eight

moves to different salons after

experiencing devastating

damage to their salons in the

2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

Since then, her strength and

determination, combined with

her team’s commitment and

love for True Grit and their

clients, has meant they are

now in an amazing new salon

and making a huge mark in

the industry.

“We’re so honoured to be

New Zealand Salon of the Year

and winners of three business

THE TEAM: Jacqui Victor (middle) and the team at True Grit Hair won Salon of the Year at

the Kitomba NZARH Business Awards.

awards,” Mrs Victor said.

“It was totally unexpected

because the calibre of the

other entrants was so high.

We’re extremely proud of

our amazing True Grit team.

Without them, we wouldn’t be

where we are today, and we’re

so happy to have shared it with

them last night.”

Kitomba chief executive

Tom Murphy commented on

True Grit’s success: “A huge

congratulations to True Grit

and especially Jacqui. I have

huge admiration for Jacqui –

she is the consummate leader,

the consummate professional.

Seeing Jacqui lead her team

and business out from

under the devastation of the

earthquakes to rebuild and

take the award for the best

New Zealand salon business is

really inspiring,” he said.

“This award is part of an

ongoing demonstration of

excellence from True Grit.

We’ve seen True Grit win the

(Hair and Beauty Industry

Training Organisation)

Training Salon of the Year

award two years in a row and

they’ve been strong contenders

in the business awards and

other competitions both here

and in Australia. This award is

a great achievement and well

deserved,” Mr Murphy said.

More than 300 hairdressers,

barbers and beauty therapists

celebrated at Sunday’s industry

awards.

The annual awards are

a collaboration between

Kitomba Salon Software,

NZARH and HITO.

Founded in 2006, the

Kitomba NZARH Business

Awards were created to build

a culture of recognising

and celebrating business

excellence in the New Zealand

hairdressing industry.

Since 2010, the awards have

been celebrated together with

the HITO Training Awards.

taking four awards. ​

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Cramping pain in my

leg when I try to walk

Intermittent Claudication

This kind of cramping (sometimes called

“window -shopping legs”) is triggered by

normal exertion of the leg muscles and

is typically caused by obstruction of the

arteries. Sufferers have to find themselves a

regular excuse to stop for a while to allow

the blood flow to reach the cramped up

muscles.

The official name for this condition is

Intermittent Claudication. Claudication is

pain and/or cramping in the lower leg due

to inadequate blood flow to the muscles.

The pain usually causes the person to

limp. The word “claudication” comes from

the Latin “claudicare” meaning to limp.

Claudication typically is felt while walking,

and subsides with rest. It is commonly

referred to as “intermittent” claudication

because it comes and goes with exertion

and rest. In severe claudication, the pain is

also felt at rest.

It is a painful condition that really

“cramps people’s lifestyle”. The pain free

walking distance tends to get shorter as the

condition progresses. If you suffer from

this condition it is crucial to understand

that the body actually finds a way to

increase the blood flow to the legs IF

THE DEMAND is there. It is like every

thing in the body……..”use it or lose it”.

Unfortunately many people with this

condition end up in a vicious cycle; the

pain stops the walking, and the lack of

walking increases the problem.

Exercise is recommended to greatly

reduce symptoms and to increase

pain free walking distance. Eight years

ago on request of the vascular nurse

in Christchurch hospital, Physical

Sense started a two weekly circuit for

Intermittent Claudication patients. The

pilot program started with 50 clients.

• 82% of all clients, experienced

improvement in their walking distance

• Quite a number of clients doubled their

walking distance, for some it even became

limitless.

• After a year 88% of clients were still active

• There was an exceptionally low dropout

rate of only 8%

• The 18% who did not notice a difference

in relation to their walking distance still

enjoyed all the other benefits of exercise

(to heart, lungs, sugar levels, bone health,

balance and mood etc.)

People always start in a group, so they

get the benefit of a guided introduction to

more exercise and the use of the gym. In

the groups we are looking at 50-80+ year

olds that are giving their legs a workout

by using steppers, treadmills, stationary

bikes and other exercise stations. That way

they also benefit from working out with

people who suffer the same problems. “It

is amazing the support and wisdom people

receive from each other” Ietje says. In this

“circuit setup” every client can work in

their own tempo, and people simply sit

down and have a rest when the “cramping

in the leg” becomes too much. Some

people stay in the group and some choose

SOUTHERN VIEW

to use the gym by themselves to keep

on top of their claudication.

At Physical Sense they have been

going strong with the Intermittent

Claudication class ever since the first

class eight years ago.

You can try the classes for FREE. If

you want to continue and you have

WINZ support, WINZ usually pays

The importance of

good blood

pressure!

Blood Pressure is an indicator

of cardiovascular as well as

overall health. Healthy blood

flow is vital for a healthy body

as the blood plasma transports

nutrients, hormones, metabolic

waste, oxygen and CO2

throughout the body. An area in

the brain keeps check on blood

flow to ensure health of all cells

and the organs they make up. If

blood flow is reduced the brain

will try to normalise blood flow

by adjusting the heart strength,

frequency (Pulse Rate) as well

as the width of blood vessels all

via the nervous system. Over

a period of time the blood

pressure may keep increasing

due to the deterioration of

blood flow. A higher B/P is

not ideal and is considered a

major risk factor for strokes,

aneurysm, organ failure and

heart failure. Even moderate

elevation of B/P is considered

a major reason for shorter life

expectancy. If we can maintain

our B/P in the normal range

our overall health will be

improved. Systolic B/P (The

around the body. Ideally at rest

this should be between 100

to 120. The diastolic B/P (The

lower figure) is the pressure in

the arteries between beats and

ideally at rest this should be

between 60 to 70.

It has been found in around

90% of cases high blood

pressure is caused by an

increase in the resistance to

blood flow in the blood vessels.

It is believed inflammation and

stiffness of the blood vessels are

major reasons for this increased

resistance. Checking our blood

Instant Pain Relief –

Needleless Acupuncture

A newly discovered needleless

acupuncture technique has clients singing

its praises. “Before the treatment my neck

was so stiff, I could hardly turn it to the right.

After the simple, short procedure I left pain

free and with the ability to move. It lasted

for several weeks which was wonderful.

I had a serious accident that has affected

my neck for years and have done many

therapies with little results. Although I do

return for additional procedures, they are

minimal and the effects are lasting longer

and longer between appointments,” said

Bryan, 67.

“I have cried many times by the end of the

day because the pain and discomfort from

the arthritis in my hands is excruciating,”

says Debbie, 62. “Dr. Lan’s sessions have

offered me extended relief and the chance

to have more mobility and ease.”

Acupuncture is a highly trusted and

frequently used therapy in Eastern

medicine. Lan Xiao’s more than thirty

years of experience as an acupuncturist

had her questioning the effectiveness and

advancement of this ancient practice.

She is considered an expert in mapping

out the human body and determining

the comparisons between the meridians

and acupressure points. Her interest is

configuring the effectiveness of the patient

assessment and through more than twenty

years of development she has tested with

tremendously results the needleless process

of acupuncture with its long lasting results.

Christchurch-based Chinese health

practitioner Lan Xiao has developed a

method of treatment, which she says has

an immediate effect on a wide variety of

pains and health conditions. It is known

as ‘acupuncture without needles’. Lan

describes it as being similar to reflexology

in that the problem area on the body

is determined through pressure, but is

much more accurate. Trained as a medical

practitioner in China, Lan came to New

Zealand in 1992 and began practising

acupuncture in 1995. From that discipline

she created her acupuncture without

needles, and uses it to treat people of all

ages with many different types of pain

in all parts of the body. This can include

arthritic pain, MS, and pain from injury.

body. This can include arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury.

“For example, the treatment has been

very successful for people who have

painful joints caused by arthritis,” Lan

says. Acupuncture without needles is also

effective in restoring energy levels, she says.

“As people age their energy is reduced, and

this can lead to other health problems. The

acupuncture without needles treatment is

like the body’s battery being charged up

again, so their energy levels are restored,

which in turn helps overcome their health

problems.”

Lan also uses it to treat depression and

anxiety, and says it can help with addiction

problems as well. “After the treatment the

person has no cravings – because it treats

the cause of the addiction.” She says the

results are immediate, though people may

need several treatments, depending on the

extent of their health problem, and while

it is slightly painful for few moments,

everyone can tolerate it.

Call Lan Xiao today and make an

appointment at 323 4168 or 027 231

after her procedure on the clinic website

See the Stripper that

gets it off, everytime!

Ideal For:

SOUTHERN VIEW

Marine

Simon Cooper from the Cooper’s strip club

By Dave Hare,

Coopers was started by Simon Cooper in the early

80’s.

At that time, Simon was a cabinet maker with a

boutique shop in Wellington making and restoring

fine furniture.

Disillusioned with the standard of current paint

strippers and with a flair for chemistry, Simon set

about making a stripper that was easy to use and

actually worked.

I asked him what on earth possessed him to try and

change the norm.

“I was sick of how difficult it

was to use the current

strippers, and knew sanding

was a complete waste of

time,” Simon says.

“Why sand when the person

who made the item, sanded

it in the first place? I was

determined to make a

product that was easy to use

and made sanding obsolete.”

Simon is Kiwi-born and bred

and as a dairy farmer’s son

he was taught at a young age

to work things out, rather

than to accept things as they

are.

At high school he developed

a passion for working with

wood and his love of fine

furniture began.

Once Simon developed his

own stripper, the word got

out and today, over 30 years

later, Simon’s products and

methods are now known as

Cooper’s Strip Club; a

complete DIY restoration

system, family owned and operated, available

throughout New Zealand and Australia.

Simon says Cooper’s is different to conventional

strippers in so many ways. The main ones being

that it will strip any finish from any surface,

without the need for sanding.

“I am very proud of it and the results it has

achieved,” he says.

With Cooper’s having been used on well over

100,000 homes, Simon says anyone can easily strip

anything covered in paint or varnish, whether the

finish is interior or exterior. Coopers is regularly

used on antique furniture, doors, windows,

detailed mouldings, floor glue, decks, painted

concrete or brick, your special project car or boat,

even the weatherboards baked by the sun for over

100 years.

I also asked Simon about the current problems

related to safe lead removal. Simon says.

“Because there is no lead dust created through

sanding, or lead vapour generated by heat guns,

lead poisoning is no longer a concern”

I asked Simon what the Stripping Expo is all about

and he said, “The Stripping Expo is a DIY paint and

varnish stripping exhibition travelling regionally

throughout New Zealand.”

“The purpose of the Stripping Expo is to show

Cooper’s stripping any paint or varnish from any

surface.”

Simon says our next expo is at the Bridge Club in

Christchurch, “We have on exhibition some

impressive before and after displays, as well as

practical one on one demonstrations.”

Come and meet the family, chat to us about your

project, bring along some photos of what you want

to strip and we’ll select a similar old piece of paint

or varnish to strip with you.” But what Simon really

wants you to do is actually bring along your

project, or a piece of it, no matter how big or small.

bring a chair, a drawer, unscrew a window sash, a

door, a piece of moulding or even your project car

or boat and they will really show you what

Cooper’s is capable of doing.

“The hall has ample parking and

easy access so impress us with

what you bring along”

Testimonial:

Dear Coopers

After using your products I cannot believe I have

the same windows, they look totally revitalised,

almost alive. I would recommend Cooper’s to

anyone, any day.
