Mr Michel’s tireless

contributions at all levels of the

club over many decades were

didn’t take long for him to take

up the 13-man code with the

Keas.

“We moved onto Jollie

St and all the kids in my

neighbourhood were playing

rugby league. I had only grown

up playing rugby union but I

picked it up straight away,” he

said.

The club has since become

an integral part of his life. Mr

Michel even met his wife Tracey

through the club. Their son also

played for the club.

The now 54-year-old played

through the grades until premier

Bs and hung his boots up

when he was 28.

Mr Michel took on the role of

club captain when he was 19 and

has coached a number of Linwood

youth teams. A highlight

of his coaching stint was taking

the same group of boys to four

grand-finals from 12s through

to 16s level.

plan

• By Caitlin Miles

NEARLY 30 changes to the

Quarryman’s Trail cycleway

plan has not stopped houses

being earmarked for demolition

so car parks can remain.

The preferred option for the

$15.5 million cycleway plans

to connect Barrington St with

Roker St by creating a pathway,

which would require demolishing

two units.

The city council still deems

this the “best option” even after

37 submitters specifically opposed

this part of the plan.

City council head of transport

Chris Gregory said 29 minor

changes were made to address

some of the concerns raised

through the 466 submissions.

Twenty-nine per cent wanted

“We had some great submissions

we’ve made a number

Thirty seven opposed and 18

the plan which involves purchasing

Barrington Sts but Mr Gregory

said the project team decided it

was still the best option.

“We could put the cycleway

along Milton St but we would

have to remove all the on street

parking which would have a

detrimental effect on the business

there,” he said.

News.............................................3

OUR FRONT page photo article

features Neil Michel, who has just

been awarded life membership

of the Linwood Rugby League

Football Club.

It’s a well-deserved award for

Neil who has put in decades of

work on and off the field for the

Keas.

He’s one of those blokes every

sports club needs – reliable, hard

working and prepared to go

the extra mile to help out when

needed.

He was a bit like that on the

football field from a distant

memory; I’m sure he steamrolled

me a few times during tackling

practice at Linwood Park.

So well done Neil – well

deserved!

And on page 3 we have the

conclusion to the long-running

saga of the floodlights for the

Cashmere Tennis Club. It’s a win

for the club. – Barry Clarke

Lights approved for tennis club

• By Caitlin Miles

RESIDENTS HAVE failed in

their bid to stop the Cashmere

Tennis Club from installing

lights.

During a three-and-a-halfhour

Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board meeting on

Friday, the board approved the

tennis club’s resource consent

for 10 8m-high lighting poles to

illuminate four of its 13 courts

during winter.

Residents opposed the lights

being installed earlier this year

due to concerns over the light

and noise from players.

The former Spreydon-Heathcote

Community Board wanted

the two groups to meet and go

over the issues in October with

an independent facilitator to see

if an agreed solution could be

reached before going back to the

community board.

A solution was not reached

and the decision was pushed

out until last week’s community

board meeting.

During the meeting, 12

deputations were made to the

community board, eight from

residents opposed to the lights.

Nearby resident Andy Brown

said he opposed the lighting as

he didn’t think it was necessary

to teach children in the evenings

and the light spill would have a

negative impact on his life.

“There will be a reduction of

quality of life in our homes during

winter,” Mr Brown said.

Tennis coach Matt Meredith

said they wanted to light the

courts during winter as the limited

day light hours restricted

how long and how many juniors

they could coach.

“The application was for our

players. We are trying to encourage

our players,” Mr Meredith said.

The club originally requested

to have the lights operating seven

days a week until 9.30pm. The

community board decided to

grant approval on the conditions

the lights would run from 4.30pm

until 8pm, Monday to Friday.

They can only be used during

the months without daylight

saving and will be on automatic

timers. It will also be reviewed

two months from when the

lights are first turned on to see

how the community are affected

by the lights.

Cr Tim Scandrett said it

was about “finding a happy

medium” between the club and

residents.

Stu McHarg said it was a relief

for the club, since they have

wanted the lights for over a year.

They want the lights to be able

to coach the junior players during

winter.

Mr McHarg said it was a

great moment for the club, since

it would mean junior players

would get more opportunities to

improve their skills.

In Brief

SPEED LIMIT PETITION

A petition to lower the speed

limits outside three schools has

been extended until the new year.

National list MP Nuk Korako

created a petition at the end of last

month asking the city council to

lower the speed limit to 40km/h

and install flashing speed signs

outside Te Waka Unua, Linwood

Avenue and St Anne’s Catholic

schools. Mr Korako will now keep

the petition open until the end of

January and present it to the city

council next year.

ST JOHNS ST REPAIRS

A section of St Johns St,

Woolston, between Glenroy St

and St Lukes St has been closed

for road, footpath, kerb and channel

repairs. A detour will be available

down Glenroy St, Hargood

St and Clydesdale St. The repairs

are expected to be completed by

Friday.

NO PARKING

Yellow lines have been installed

along part of Ombersley Tce in

Opawa to improve visibility for

motorists. Residents asked the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board to put in parking

restrictions due to concerns

around safety and visibility. Yellow

lines will be installed down

both sides of the road from the

intersection with Hawford Rd.

Caring for river

Karen

Whitla is

the

co-chair of

Opawaho-

Heathcote

River

Network.

She

discusses

the ongoing clean-up of

the Heathcote River and

how she wants the city

council to look at what

they are doing to care for

the river

I have, in my capacity as

co-chair of the

Opawaho-Heathcote River

Network, been involved

in some wonderful people

projects, such as the Whaka

Inaka (whitebait) project, that

many Opawaho River Schools,

were involved with; and sadly,

the most polluted waterways

in the city, Haytons and

Curletts Rd streams.

I am often torn, at the huge

task of a clean, swimmable

Opawaho River, is it all too

big, and how can I make a

difference, when suddenly I

was confronted by an issue

much closer to home, in fact

it was my neighbours and my

homes.

The long-awaited,

earthquake damaged sewer

and stormwater repairs

were assessed and a plan

developed. For my part I was

thrilled to know the sewage

was no longer flowing under

the vegetable garden, down

through the substructure of

the neighbours’ gardens and

out into the Opawaho River at

the end of my street.

Stormwater was a different

issue. I was always proud

that we were not connected

to the stormwater system,

and not contributing to the

zinc and other contaminates

that flow into our waterways

daily. Instead I had rainwater

soak-pits retaining our roof

and floodwater within our

property.

Rainwater gardens aided

in the slow absorption of

stormwater. The only option

given was to connect to the

stormwater, which was in my

opinion, a backwards step in

the fight to reduce polluted

waterways. Fortunately

further investigation

confirmed, that I could

‘replace like for like’.

Sadly, my neighbours,

didn’t have the opportunity to

change back from stormwater

to soak-pits, rain collection

tanks and gardens.

So standing on my soapbox,

with passion, I would like

to encourage, those with

soak-pits, please don’t be

manipulated to connect to

stormwater.

The city council and landcare

both have DIY rainwater

garden details and various

types of rainwater storage

tanks are available from many

large hardware stores.

Our councillors must

seriously look at future

housing developments and

legislate for every house

to have modern rainwater

collection and retention,

as well as every new road

having swales, collecting the

pollutants from our car tyres

and brakes.

We said:

It’s likely the Sydenham

Heritage Church rubble

won’t be moved by the end

of the year, making it nearly

six years. Artefacts the trust

wish to salvage have been

buried under the pile of stone

on the corners of Colombo

and Brougham Sts.

You said:

Deborah Hansen – Not a nice

look. A real eye sore and timely

reminder. Everything should

be cleared now so people don’t

constantly get reminded of what

happened.

Bruce Denton – Time it was

gone, the rubbish pile is getting

worse.

Linda Blackwell – A real

eyesore.

Raymond Low: What the trust

is waiting on is for someone else to

pay for the clean up, recovery and

storage of their mess! I say you’ve

had six years to remove, salvage

and store your rubbish. Now it’s

time the city council cleaned your

mess up and charged the trust for

the cost, then begin proceedings’ in

the courts to recover the costs. As

for your artefacts if they are so important

why have they been left to

decay for the past six bloody years!

Kim Davison – I would imagine

the “artefacts” are a bit skeletal

by now! I might be wrong but

wouldn’t the Halswell Stone have to

be removed so they can get to the

skeletal artefacts? Not something

on the tourists list of something

to see in Christchurch or mine for

that matter.

Alison Fitzgerald – It was

mistakenly demolished and now

left to sit for years. I realise behind

the scenes there will be a raft of

financial hand breaks but surely,

surely some agreement can be

reached? If only to clean up the site.

such thing as a dump right? Or

surely some could be recycled to

make something else.

Denyse Herewini – It’s disgusting

six years and still we have

to look at this rubble what is wrong

not a good look it’s more like telling

people we can’t be bothered.

Janet Roberts: Get rid of this

eyesore put a green space there.

Heather Verile Shirley

Knights – I agree time to go we

are all over this awful sight.

Caroline Onslow - I think it is

a disgrace that this pile of rubble is

still there. I acknowledge that it was

demolished without the proper notification,

but that is no excuse for

it still to be an eyesore for nearly six

years. I drive past this several times

a week and think it is a disgusting

entrance to Sydenham. Somebody

needs to be penalised for leaving

this here otherwise nothing will

be done. Why has the council not

acted?

We said:

Large trucks and trailers

have been doing U-turns

on Ensors Rd, sometimes

holding up four lanes of

traffic to make the turn and in

spite of residents’ concerns

they will still be able to make

these turns. We asked if

you thought it was a safety

concern

You said:

Mechelle Wilson – They do it

all the time. Especially when you’re

sitting on Sullivan Ave and a truck

is doing a U-turn in front of you.

So many close calls where I thought

the truck was going to hit my car.

Dave Carter – You people need

to get a grip and wake up, they have

a job to do. Next you will be having

a whinge because there’s no food

at the shops, no fuel for your cars

and the roads are not getting fixed.

Show some respect for someone

doing a great job every day so that

whingeing people like yourselves

get it easy.

However Roker St resident,

Nic McKenzie said the city

council’s decision is “disappointing”

after she suggested

one of the alternative routes

was better to avoid getting rid

of housing.

“The cycleways are a great

idea, I just feel sad that people’s

homes will be demolished

because of it,” Mrs McKenzie

said.

for the 8.3km route that runs

from Halswell, Somerfield,

Mike Vincent

Million dollar mission to save a

Mike Vincent is Kaikoura’s paua saviour. He

reckons he and about 450 volunteers have

saved paua worth more than $1 million

since the November 14 earthquake. Fraser

Walker-Pearce talks to the 44-year-old about

questioning his science teacher and missing

his wife and kids

Where are you while we’re

chatting?

We’re in Boat Harbour in the

south of Kaikoura still, we’re

waiting for a road to open so

we can get access to some bays

further to the north, the different

inlets and bays up there. All

the way from Oaro through to

Peketa is the area we’ve been allowed

to relocate paua.

Talk to me about the process

of relocating paua. What does

that entail?

Before I do I’ll explain how to

normally gather paua. You jump

in at low tide and dive for it;

that’s the way to get it legally. But

now because of the earthquake

you can walk out in sand shoes

without getting wet and reach it.

In my whole 30 years of diving

I’ve never been able to go into

a tidal zone and pick up my six

paua without getting wet. There’s

no science in that, it’s just what’s

happened.

So now you’re wading out,

gathering them and dropping

them deeper?

What we do is we go out at

low tide, when there’s a two hour

window either side of that and

we fill buckets with water and the

harvesters go out and grab them,

and the relocaters who are the

experienced divers, go and place

them on rocks, back into the

water basically. The simple way

of saying it is that we’re moving

them from where there was no

water, to where there is water.

How much depth do you

think has been lost from the

earthquake?

It’s hard to put a number on

it, because all I can say is there’s

hundreds of dead paua on the

beaches now. It’s also important

to ask if in the old tidal zone

pre-earthquake was there any

sea-life on the beach? The answer

is no. In the new tidal zone after

the quake would there be any life

says she is his rock back in Christchurch.

there? And the answer is still no,

because sea creatures can’t live

out of water (laughs).

And so you’ve brought it on

yourself to get them back in the

water?

A diving mate of mine Dylan

Dhue, his wife Hannah and I

phoned each other the day after

the earthquake. When we saw a

photo of a rock full of paua well

above the water line on Facebook,

that’s what made me call

him and I said to him we have to

do something. And that’s when

I posted my first Facebook plea

for help.

And it all went from there?

Pretty much. So now it’s all

the same as us – they’ve all

visited or dived here. It’s touched

all of us. Kaikoura has a special

place in all South Islanders’

minds and hearts. Also a big

thank you to the local runanga in

Kaikoura who offered their help

and support for us.

Obviously you can’t save

every single paua out there –

but how many do you think

you’ve relocated back to the

water?

You’re right we can’t save all

of them. But I’d say we’ve put

between 20,000 and 75,000kg of

paua back into the water. But to

give you an idea, we would fill a

20-30L bucket in about a minute,

so we fill thousands of buckets.

To put a money figure on what

we’re doing, it’s about $90 for a

ton of paua, so we would be talking

over a million bucks for this

operation normally. We’ve probably

had about 450 volunteers

over the whole time helping out

too. I want to say a big thank you

to all our wives out there as well

(laughs). We’ve all got families

mate, they’ve been our rocks, so

letting us go away and do this is

awesome.

can get there. If it doesn’t open

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | DECEMBER 2016

The year ahead

A message from outgoing EQC chief executive

Ian Simpson

The Kaikoura Earthquake has been an unwelcome

reminder of the sheer power and unpredictability

of geological forces and of New Zealand’s

vulnerability to these.

The earthquake has also highlighted yet again

the resilience of New Zealanders in the face of

natural disaster.

At EQC, it’s also reminded us that every natural

disaster affects communities in different ways. So

while we have learned a number of lessons from

Canterbury 2010-2011, our response to the

Kaikoura Earthquakes will be different.

One of the key things we learned from

Canterbury is that we should have put more

time early on into building relationships with

customers, community groups, local

Courtesy of Tonkin + Taylor

Don’t wait to hear from

EQC – lodge your claim

Most people seen by EQC in the first

weeks since the Kaikoura

Earthquake of 14 November have

wanted help lodging their claims

and advice on how to get emergency

repairs underway to get them back

into their homes.

EQC Customer and Claims General

Manager Trish Keith says that having

organised three teams on rotation into

the most impacted areas of Ward, Waiau

and Kaikoura to help lodge claims,

provide information and answer

EQC-related questions, EQC is being

kept up to date on customer needs.

“One of the lessons out of Canterbury

was that people wanted information

and the opportunity to talk to someone

about their issues as soon as they could

after an event, so we have ensured that

our response to Kaikoura includes

personal contact,” Mrs Keith says.

“The teams have been dealing with

hundreds of customers one-on-one.

Many people have been asking EQC

when someone from EQC will visit

them, so they will know what to do

next. My advice is that they go ahead

and lodge the claim first. Don’t wait for

anyone to visit.

“Go ahead and lodge your claim to

ensure you are in the system, and any

earthquake damage found later can be

added. If you fail to lodge a claim

before 14 February 2017, we won’t be

able to help you so best to lodge the

government, and government agencies

and insurers.

We are heeding that lesson as we plan our

response to Kaikoura. We’ve had staff on the

ground in Kaikoura, Ward and Waiau to help

customers lodge their claims and answer EQC

related questions. The information our people

are picking up from those areas is being fed back

into our planning.

The work we are doing now will mean that in

2017 we will be putting in place the team we

need to deliver a response tailored to the needs

of customers impacted by the Kaikoura

Earthquake. This team will be part of the new

structure we have developed to also carry on the

remaining work in Canterbury in 2017.

While we are working very hard on responding to

Kaikoura, we also know we have to keep focussed

on resolving the final Canterbury claims.

I’m stepping down as EQC’s chief executive at

the end of this year. I want to thank people of

claim,” Mrs Keith says.

The next steps about claim assessment

and settlement are still the subject of

ongoing negotiations with private

insurers. EQC is confident it will have

news on this soon.

EQC has been prioritising the

vulnerable and the most damaged

homes for visits, as needed.

All EQC teams are working out of

Recovery Assistance Centres set up by

Canterbury Civil Defence Emergency

Management in Ward, Waiau and

Kaikoura so Government agencies and

non-government agencies could deliver

consistently across areas of need.

If you have any questions about

your existing claim or want to lodge

a new claim:

• Visit www.eqc.govt.nz/claims

• Email info@eqc.govt.nz

• Phone 0800 DAMAGE (326 243)

The EQC call centre is open 7am to

9pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to

6pm on Saturdays.

To prepare for making a claim,

remember to have on hand:

• Information about what damage

occurred

• Photographs showing the damage

and any urgent work that was done

• Your insurance policy number and

name of your insurance company.

Courtesy of NZ Fire Service

Canterbury for the support we have received,

and at times for your patience. I acknowledge we

didn’t always get everything right but we have

learned from that. I also want to acknowledge the

EQC staff who worked very hard to support the

Canterbury recovery.

Looking ahead, it’s clear 2017 will be another

year of challenges. I’m confident that EQC will

rise to meet those challenges.

2017 changes

From later this month, EQC will be the main point of

contact for all customer enquiries relating to Canterbury

Home Repair Programme (CHRP) repairs.

Until now, customers have dealt with EQC and/or Fletcher EQR

– depending on what stage their repairs have been at. But, from

16 December, EQC’s 0800 number (0800 326 243) will be the

main number for all customers – including those whose

properties are in the current sub-floor review, who will be

transferred to the Fletcher EQR staff focussing on that work.

No delays are intended or anticipated, but personnel changes

due to the completion of about 68,400 first-time CHRP repairs

may mean some customers will have a different contact person

at EQC or EQR in 2017.

EQC’s General Manager Customer and Claims Trish Keith says

these customers will be advised of any changes and provided

with new contact details.

“We don’t want customers who currently have a contact

person at EQC or EQR calling us and only then finding out that

someone else is looking after their claim.”

She says any changes will be limited to EQC and EQR

personnel, and repair work will be carried out by contractors

that have already worked for the home repair programme and

are familiar with EQC’s systems and quality expectations.

Most CHRP contractors will finish work for the year on

23 December and resume work from 9 January.

EQC’s Contact Centre hours will be:

• Friday 23 December: 7am-5pm

• Saturday 24 December – Tuesday 27 December: CLOSED

• Wednesday 28 December – Friday 30 December: 8am-5pm

• Saturday 31 December – Tuesday 3 January: CLOSED

• Normal hours will resume on Wednesday 4 January

(7am-9pm Monday-Friday; 8am-6pm Saturday)

Positive

response to

February 2016

settlement

process

90 percent of claims from the February 2016

earthquakes have been settled.

EQC’s February 2016 Event Response Manager,

Jayne Lapin, says of the 13,879 claims received for the

14 and 29 February earthquakes and subsequent

aftershocks, EQC has resolved 12,440 (90 percent)

by cash settlement worth a total value of $46,039,854

“Customers have appreciated the approach we have

developed and implemented in response to the

February earthquakes.”

The new approach uses both on-site and phonebased

assessments, and allows customers to influence

the pace of settlement by giving them the opportunity

to provide earthquake damage data and

photographic evidence.

Thanks to a robust period of planning in advance and

with customers providing information up front, claims

have taken an average of three weeks to reach

settlement from assessment.

Customers who have been through the process have

been surveyed and nearly 90 percent of those who have

taken part have been positive about their experience.

Ms Lapin says EQC had hoped to resolve all February

2016 claims by the end of the year but it has suited

some customers to defer their assessment to 2017,

meaning a small number remain open and will be

closed early next year.

Land settlements

update

Almost all land claims will be resolved by the end

of the year but there will be some customers who

will get their settlement in 2017.

At the end of December 2016, out of a total of

approximately 73,000 green zone properties we

expect to have resolved 97% of them. This means we

have either made payments to customers or advised

them that they don’t qualify for the types of land

damage known as Increased Flooding Vulnerability

(IFV) and/or Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV).

“We’ve been working to get an answer to all land

customers waiting to hear from us this year. While we

have worked hard to ensure that customers have

received their land settlement, we are conscious that

some are still waiting”, says EQC’s Head of Customer

and Claims Trish Keith.

“These are the last of the most complex claims that

we need to settle and we will do our best to continue

to deliver robust settlements which can give

homeowners confidence that all properties have been

assessed fairly and consistently”, says Mrs Keith.

“Looking back on the year, we would also like the

opportunity to thank all land customers, community

groups and many other stakeholders, who are also

supporting our customers, for their patience and

understanding as well as taking the time to come to

our community meetings on land settlements or

hosting us and providing us with their feedback”,

concludes Mrs Keith.

The EQC website remains a good source of

information for land customers who want to find out

more about IFV and ILV land damage, which are a

world-first. Please visit www.eqc.govt.nz/IFV or www.

eqc.govt.nz/ILV.

It has been a year of significant busyness

reflecting the growth and positive nature

increased academic achievement, community

whole-school rebuild, our third year of

providing education at Year 7-13, curriculum

environments’ and ‘21st Century learning’ are

being regularly used in the media. Linwood

is clear-eyed about the forms of education

that work for our students. We are focusing

on ‘flexible learning environments’ so that

learning can be individualised and students

see pathways for themselves that engage and

inspire. It is not about ‘traditional’ or ‘modern’,

but personalisation so the systems adapt to

the learner, not the other way round.

Common sense and formal research are

united and very clear on the attitudes,

skills and knowledge that lead secondary

school students on to a successful postschool

pathway, both in tertiary study and in

employment, and it is the daily focus on these

attributes, principally through our SEaRCH

values – Service, Excellence, Respect,

Curiosity and Honesty – that is at the heart of

our school.

Hello

Experienced stylists &

talented apprentice offer

latest in hair services

After a long history in the central city (it started in 1969),

the Statesman Hair Studio moved to 410 Colombo Street,

Sydenham, in 2012.

Two years later, experienced stylist

Bronwyn Houghton, who had been

working at the Statesman for 17

years under various owners, took the

opportunity to become owner of the

Salon owner Bronwyn Houghton

business herself.

Now in her 20th year with the

Statesman, she has two other staff

members alongside her. They are

Julianne Becker, previous owner/

operator of Cashmere Hair Company

and a talented senior stylist with over

30 years’ international experience, and

Bronwyn’s daughter Maddi, their upand-coming

apprentice, who is in her

third year of training and thoroughly

enjoying her hairdressing career. She has

been named Hairdresser of the Year at

the Avonmore Tertiary Academy for two

years running, and is now working fulltime

in the salon for her third year.

While there are many salons around

the city offering cutting and colouring

services, the stylists at the Statesman

Hair Studio say their point of difference

is that they listen to their clients and

understand how they want their hair to

look.

They offer the latest cutting, colouring,

perming, texturising, finishing services

and make-up tailored to fit each

individual client’s needs, and will also

offer suggestions on how a different

hairstyle or new colour can enhance a

client’s looks and personality.

As well as having the talent and

experience to create stunning hairstyles

in the salon, the stylists also share

with their clients the tips and tricks to

keep their hair looking great between

appointments.

They have a range of quality hair care

products available for purchase, with

The Statesman now an exclusive KEUNE

stockiest. The stylists are very impressed

with all the products in this brand – as

Bronwyn says, “We love it!”

The Statesman Hair Studio is located

on the corner of Wordsworth and

Colombo streets in Sydenham. The

stylists invite you to call in for a free

consultation, or book an appointment

Shops bursting with

festive gift ideas

The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making

up the Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you

haven’t already done so.

Finding those special gifts and stocking

fillers as well as the Christmas treats for

the table is so easy at our city’s malls and

shopping centres, where the shops are

bursting with festive merchandise.

Every woman likes to receive bodypampering

gifts, and there is a huge

selection of these priced to suit all budgets

at the many pharmacies and gift shops

around the city. Perfume is another

favourite and again there is a wide

selection to choose from, ranging from

exciting new releases to the well-known

fragrances that have stood the test of time.

Lingerie, jewellery, fashion accessories,

homewares and decor items – there’s no

end to the ideas for the women on the list.

The men are equally well catered for, from

the sophisticated metro-male boyfriends,

to the car-crazy brothers and the DIY

in Southern View

enthusiast and keen gardener husbands

and dads. Choose from clothing, books,

tools, personal grooming items and

gadgets to put a smile on their face on

Christmas morning.

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families

more joy than seeing the excitement

of the children opening their presents.

Whether they are delivered by Santa or

snuck under the tree by mum and dad,

the cuddly toys, games, dolls and building

blocks, the candy canes, toy trucks and

pretty dresses currently filling the shops

will bring squeals of sheer happiness from

the smallest family members.

The tweens and teens usually have their

own ideas about what they want for

Christmas, so the gift cards offered by a

wide range of retailers are the perfect way

to please.

Hello

Restaurant’s authentic Thai

flavours a long-time favourite

The delicious Thai food offered at Green

Chilli in Woolston has been a favourite of

Christchurch’s Thai food lovers for more than

20 years. Originally a takeaway outlet located

in the Woolston shopping centre, Green Chilli

became a fully-fledged restaurant when it

moved further along Ferry Road almost three

years ago.

Situated at 596 Ferry Rd (next to the Three

Boys brewery), Green Chilli still offers the

popular takeaways, but is also a 55-seat

restaurant, where diners can enjoy the authentic

Thai flavours with family and friends in

attractive, Thai-themed surroundings.

A family-run business, Green Chilli still

has the same chef, too. Many of the dishes he

prepares have become customer favourites,

especially their famous Pad Thai, which is the

most popular item on the menu. The chicken

satay with four sticks of large, juicy chicken

pieces is another very popular dish, and great

value at only $10.

Curry puffs, spring rolls and fish cakes

are among the tasty starters, while the wide

selection of main dishes includes green, red and

yellow curries, massaman curry, spicy chicken

lemongrass and

Thai-style salads. To

ensure all taste preferences

are catered for, the chef

prepares the dishes in degrees

of spiciness – mild, medium, Kiwi

hot and Thai hot, according to what is

requested.

Fully licensed, Green Chilli is open from

11-30am-2pm for lunch and from 5pm till late

for dinner, seven days a week. They offer a

Wednesday special – three courses for $22. And

with a 10 per cent discount for group bookings,

Green Chilli is ideal for Christmas and family

functions.

Off-street parking is available and there

is plenty of on-street parking as well. They

also offer a free delivery service – minimum

order $45, within the local area. For over two

kilometres away there is a $5 delivery charge.

Green Chilli is located at 596 Ferry Rd,

Woolston. For bookings or takeaway orders

phone 381 2855, or their new number, 384

9993. They will be open right through the

Christmas and New Year holidays, except for

Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

for the kids

With school holidays creeping closer and

closer, you will be desperately thinking of

some activities to keep the kids occupied and

entertained. Here are a few ideas to get them

out in the fresh air.

Sow Sunflower seeds

Sunflowers add a bright burst of colour and also

draw much-needed bees to the garden. They are

super easy to grow, and give the kids something to

keep an eye on as they begin to grow. Here are some

tips for planting.

1) Pick a part of your garden that has plenty of sun.

For taller varieties, make sure that you plant them

near a fence or trellis so they are protected from the

wind, and so you can tie them back if they start to

topple.

2) Sunflowers like to grow when the weather’s warm

so now is a great time to get in to it.

3) Push the seeds into the soft soil. Make sure

they’re down at least one centimetre, then water

well (using a watering can) afterwards

4) As the plants grow, keep them well watered, and

give them some fertiliser every couple of weeks.

Plant a hanging basket

These looks great, and

take up very little space.

Head down to your local

garden centre and grab

a hanging basket and let

the kids help you pick the

flowers you want to add

in. use South-Hort Patio Plus as your growing mix,

as this contains all the vital nutrients your plants will

need to keep flowering, and help them get through

the summer heat.

Paint pots

Grab some plain terracotta pots, and some paint and

let the kids get creative. Once they are done, choose

some flowers or some herbs and get planting. Once

again, use South-Hort Patio Plus. This mix is designed

specifically for growing in pots, containers and

baskets.

KIDSTUFF

FLAME FILES

Don’t leave clothes in

the dryer unattended

Fire risk management

officer Mark Thomas

talks about call outs

in the lead up to

Christmas, and a new

call out to a fire in an

ice cream truck

Another week and

another series of car

crashes in Christchurch.

Twenty-one attended by

Fire Service troops in the

past seven days.

Lately, these seem to be

increasing quite alarmingly.

It might be the time

of year, it might be something

to do with drink

driving but, whatever it

is, a car crash just now is

pretty much guaranteed to

result in a less than merry

Christmas.

For goodness sake watch

where you’re driving,

watch other traffic and pedestrians

and don’t speed.

You’ve heard the term

‘fire and ice’. ‘Fire and ice

cream’ doesn’t have the

same ring about it does it?

Every now and then

comes an incident that

is new, even to long-time

firefighters. A recently

opened service station in

Harewood had a fire in

an ice cream machine last

Thursday.

It didn’t come to much

and was shut down by

staff with firefighters just

ensuring no fire spread

with a thermal imaging

camera.

I’ve mentioned this before

but leaving the house

with a clothes dryer just

started is not recommended.

We’ve all done it, many

of us not even thinking

THE PLAYHOUSE CHALLENGE

about the possibilities.

Mostly nothing will happen

other than the clothes

being dry when you come

home. But occasionally,

as in Malabar Cres,

Broomfield, last Friday, a

family will come home to

a destroyed home.

By being there while

the appliance is operating

you increase your chance

of cutting off a fire or at

least having us on the way

earlier.

And every second saved

means so much more of

your stuff saved.

Tenants Protection Association (TPA) Christchurch, Birthright Canterbury, and

Star Media are proud to present Canterbury’s first ever ‘Playhouse Challenge.’

The competition will see some of our top architects and building teams compete

against each other to build Canterbury’s best playhouse and receive an award for

‘Best Architectural Playhouse’ or the ‘People’s Choice’.

The best five playhouses will be judged by an expert panel and members of the

public attending the 2017 Star Home & Leisure Show. The playhouses will be on

display at the Show from 30 June until 2 July, where they will also be auctioned.

Proceeds from the auction will be shared between TPA and Birthright Canterbury

to support their ongoing work in the community.

Send in Your Expression of Interest

If you think you are up for the challenge of building

Canterbury’s best playhouse, please submit an

Expression of Interest by 5pm on 22 December.

Visit birthrightchch.org.nz or tpa.org.nz

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to

contact Di Harwood at TPA on (03) 379-2297.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Arthritis &

back pain

to rest or keep moving?

With arthritis and back pain 30 years ago

the advice was to rest. But research has

shown that inactivity only makes things

worse.

Move, move, move is always the advice

for arthritis. Staying in bed with back pain

often results in greater difficulty moving

and may prolong the pain. Better to stay

active, garden or walk to the shops.

A pain killer may enable you to continue

normal activities. Any movement, no

matter how small, helps relieve pain. Start

gently with something you enjoy.

There’s no quick fix for back pain but

you need to keep moving. You can keep

your legs and lower back moving with an

Aircycle circulation booster while you sit.

By working your legs, your core muscles

which help support your back, also work

and strengthen. Lower back pain and

sciatica, aching legs and joints are often

relieved this way.

So move – even while you sit. The

Aircycle “pedal” exercise enables this. And

don’t forget to laugh occasionally. That

massages your internal organs and helps

you relax.

Back pain however, has many and varied

causes. Never neglect seeking medical

advice.

Aircycle information and orders:

www.aircycle.co.nz or 0800 14 14 15. Also

Effective

natural skincare

that is ideal for

problem skin

MooGoo produce a full range

of safe, natural skin and scalp

products that are especially

suited for those with problem

skin. In these products they

only use top quality edible

ingredients that are known to

be highly effective and good

for our skin. These active

ingredients are only used in

correct concentrations for

effective results and not just

added to look good on the

label. Because the MooGoo

range is so safe and yet so

effective is probably why it

was rated the number one

most preferred brand of nonprescription

(non-steroid)

creams for those suffering from

problem skin in Australia.

It is also recommended by

many medical practitioners in

Australia.

As MooGoo products are

safe and natural they are ideal

for long term use from babies

to adults. They are an effective

alternative or follow-up

treatment to chemically-based

ointments.

Collagen

the body’s youth protein

Collagen is the primary

protein in the body. It is a major

component of skin, hair, nails,

muscles, tendons, ligaments,

joint cartilage, bones, gums,

teeth, eyes, and blood vessels.

In fact collagen is the primary

structural component for all

tissue in the body, providing

the strength and resilience

associated with youth, beauty

and wellness. The body’s natural

collagen production decreases

with age resulting in many signs

of aging, such as flaccid skin,

wrinkles, ligament and tendon

injuries and aching joints.

Collagen supplementation is

one of the most fundamental

things a person can do to

prevent premature aging and

promote youthful vitality.

NEOCELL are the industry

leaders in research on collagen

supplementation. Through

advanced research they have

perfected a way to hydrolyse

collagen and effectively reduce

its molecular weight this

improving the absorption of

collagen into the blood stream

by over 90%.

A clinical study on

NEOCELL COLLAGEN

has shown skin hydration to

increase an average of 21%

and up to 50%, with 92% of

test subjects experiencing

firmer, softer skin. Most

people taking NEOCELL

COLLAGEN reported seeing

visible improvements within

two weeks.

Collagen supplementation

provides the nutrients necessary

to support the body’s collagen

supply. It can help reduce fine

lines and wrinkles and improve

skin elasticity, support building

of strong bones and teeth,

strengthen the nails and hair,

and is vital for muscle growth,

It also assists weight loss by

helping burn fat for energy,

promotes wound healing by

supporting the regeneration of

healthy tissue as well as help

support overall health.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

SOUTHERN VIEW

No job too small at

this repair business

Scratch on the bumper? Dent in the door?

Damage like this can happen so easily – in

supermarket car parks, for example. And

the place to get minor damage quickly and

professionally repaired is SMART Repairs

in Lichfield Street.

SMART (Small to Medium Automotive

Repair Techniques) Repairs provides a topquality

service with a quick turnaround

– vehicles are usually in and out within a

couple of days.

SMART Repairs is owned and operated

by Brian and Maxine Caffell, who bought

their first panelbeating business in 1993.

Brian has a total of 31 years’ experience in

the trade, so customers can be confident

they will get a first-class job.

Services include paintless dent removal,

or PDR, and while a large percentage of

their work is non-insurance, they also

provide insurance quotes and carry out

those repairs quickly and efficiently.

To keep their customers on the road while

their vehicle is in the workshop, SMART

Repairs recently acquired a courtesy car,

and this has already proven to be a great

help for people, Maxine says. They also offer

a pick-up and delivery service if required.

As a small, friendly operation, SMART

Repairs specialises in small to medium

repair work, with no job too small, Maxine

says. Their aim is to provide personalised

service, and make it easy for customers

unsure what to do if their vehicle is

damaged.

“We take pride in our work and ensure

that our customers are happy with the

results.”

SMART Repairs is located at 272

Lichfield Street, at the Fitzgerald Avenue

end. Opening hours are Monday to Friday,

8am-4.30pm.

To enquire about repairs to your

vehicle, call in, or phone 377-0409.
