Panelling protects monument from tags

The Woolston Borough Monument’s protective panelling has been tagged just under three weeks after its installation.

The $23,000 project was implemented after the monument had worn its fair share of graffiti.

plans

frustrate

business

owners

• By Noah Graham

FERRY RD business owners

have been left frustrated by the

city council’s new plans for the

Heathcote Expressway cycleway.

After public outcry over the original

plans for the cycleway, which

included removing 90 per cent of

car parks along the stretch of road,

the city council decided to rethink

the proposed option.

The original idea involved removing

63 of the 70 car parks on both

sides of Ferry Rd.

The city council has now proposed

two new options. The city

council’s preferred option is to have

cycle lanes on both sides of Ferry

Rd, which will leave 10 parking

spaces.

The alternative option is to have a

‘bi-directional’ cycleway along one

side of Ferry Rd that will leave 32

parking spaces.

However, Carey Motors owner

Tony Carey said both new options

would not be good for businesses

because too many parking spaces

would still be lost.

Mr Carey said the city council

needed to once again rethink the

options because he does not feel like

it has listened to what businesses

wanted.

ENOUGH REALLY is enough.

That pile of rubble, which really

was a lovely looking church, needs

to jolly well be shifted.

The Sydenham Heritage Church

was unfortunately reduced to

rubble by the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, in rather controversial

fashion. That was not nice.

But since then it has sat, a mass

of grey rubble. Now there have

been problems, understandably.

But they have been sorted and we

keep being told, in an almost comical

fashion, that it will be cleared

“within weeks.” The latest came in

January. It is now nearly April.

An elderly acquaintance of mine

(who will kick me soundly in the

shins for calling her old, but oh

well) said they would eat their hat

if the rubble was actually gone by

April. I suspect their hat’s in no

danger of being eaten.

Read page 3 and see if you agree.

Church rubble soon to be cleared

• By Noah Graham

IT IS still a waiting game as

to when the pile of rubble of

that was once the Sydenham

Heritage Church will finally be

moved.

Sydenham Heritage Trust

chairwoman Dorothy Haywood

told Southern View in

January it was only a matter

of weeks before the church site

would be cleared after the trust

had signed on with contractors.

However, no progress has

been made on the site and

when asked, Mrs Haywood said

it is still weeks away but will

“definitely be very soon.”

The remains have been on

the corner of Colombo and

Brougham Sts for more than

six years since it was controversially

demolished after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Mrs Haywood said clearing

the site was now in the hands of

the contractor who she declined

to name.

When asked by Southern

View why she would not name

the contractors, Mrs Haywood

said: “It is commercially sensitive

information.”

“People do want to know, I

appreciate that. But there are a

lot of things people want the

answers to but do not get.”

DAMAGE: Sydenham Heritage Trust chairwoman Dorothy Haywood – standing in the ruins of

the church site in 2013 before it was completely demolished – says clearing of the rubble will

‘definitely be very soon.’

Mrs Haywood said the trust

was a volunteer group and they

were doing as much as they

could to move the rubble.

“We are doing the best we

can.”

In Brief

NEW PLAYGROUND PLANS

Plans for a new playground in

Woolston Park are planned to be

presented to the community in

May. The city council demolished

the playground in October last

year, without public consultation.

Te Waka Unua school, Woolston

Residents’ Association and other

community groups will be included

in the concept design ideas before it

goes to public consultation.

CYCLEWAY CHANGES

Changes are being made to the

Ferry Rd section of the Heathcote

Expressway cycleway. Following

concerns from business owners

along Ferry Rd, consultation on the

section of the proposed cycleway

was kept open after the rest of it

was closed. Following submissions

the city council’s design team

are looking at other options and

contacted affected proprieties on

Friday. Further submissions will be

taken until April 14.

CONSULTATION CLOSING

Consultation on the plans for a

cycleway that starts in Cashmere

closes on Monday. The Nor’West

Arc cycleway plans were released

last month. The majority of the

route runs through the south side of

the city before finishing in Papanui.

It is planned to start on Ferniehurst

St, before moving onto Woodbank

and Palmside Sts with a pedestrian

island to be built on Rose St.

Community

Linwood-Central-

Heathcote

Board member

Sara Templeton

talks about one

of Christchurch’s

banes, graffiti, and

how well the community

has responded to it.

ashion

IT WASN’T long after the

earthquakes in 2011 that our

city had a sudden rise in graffiti.

Damaged and vacant buildings

were ripe for tagging and our

public spaces became targets for

vandals.

This was true in Heathcote

Valley where I live, as it was

across the city. So, a group of

us called the city council and

Gardening

joined the Graffiti Volunteers

programme ‘Off the Wall’.

Supplied with hi-vis, brushes

and paint we kept on top of the

local problem, reporting it for

removal by contractors when we

couldn’t do the work ourselves.

The problem soon tapered off as

taggers realised that their marks

otoring

weren’t going stay around for

long, and it’s stayed pretty good

since then.

Graffiti is a problem – it damages

property and makes local

residents feel less safe in

their community. Quick

removal is the key, so

reporting it for removal

as soon as it’s seen is

important. Conversely,

graffiti that is left attracts

more graffiti, and we see

this time and time again.

City council can remove

graffiti on road boundary fences,

lamp posts and other similar

public places, but the green

roadside cabinets are looked

after by their owners – Chorus,

Orion or others and city council

can’t remove graffiti on private

buildings. They will pass on the

details if you call, but contacting

the company directly will have a

quicker result.

The city council does an

annual graffiti survey and the

results are striking. In 2013

there were 11,592 tags spotted

and in 2016 only 1591 tags were

seen across the city during the

same period. Interestingly,

reported graffiti has gone up

over the same time coinciding

with the introduction of the

Snap Send Solve app and

accepting complaints about

graffiti on private property.

These complaints are

registered on our books, but the

removal request is forwarded to

the owner.

We have more than 1000

fantastic volunteers helping keep

their communities graffiti free,

but you don’t have to join to help

out. Phone 941 8999 to report it,

or use the Snap Send Solve app

on your phone.

My favourite saying is apt

here – “I used to think that

somebody should do something

about that; then I realised that I

was somebody.” Aren’t we all?

We said: The city council is

unlikely to lower the speed

from 50km/h to 40km/h

outside three primary

schools that has been

campaigning for lower

speed limits.

Panels protect monument

• By Noah Graham

IT HAS taken less than three

weeks for protective panelling

installed on the Woolston

Borough Monument to be tested.

The monument, on the corner

of Ferry Rd and Richardson Tce,

is no stranger to graffiti, and the

city council’s plan seemed to

have worked.

The $23,000 project to install

panels was completed earlier

this month in an effort to deter

taggers from spray painting the

monument.

The panels are clear with a

film over top of them, which can

be replaced if they are defaced,

keeping the monuments clean.

The panels can be removed entirely

during ceremonies.

Woolston Community Centre

co-ordinator Carol Brown said

it was so disappointing that the

panelling had been tagged so

soon after its installation.

However, she said she was glad

the monument had not been

tagged and the panelling had

done its job.

“All the money spent has been

worth it.”

The monument commemorates

when Woolston became a

borough on July 27, 1893, and is

made of Oamaru stone.

City council could not respond

before Southern View’s deadline.

LIBRARY WORK CONTINUES

Work is continuing on

a new Woolston Library

feedback over the draft concept

Cycleway plans frustrate

•From page 1

Said Mr Carey: “Nobody is in

favour of this plan at all because

it still removes too much parking

and could negatively impact

businesses.

“It feels like the council are

trying to put people out of business.”

He said businesses relied on

people being able to park on the

roadside as not all of them have

on-site parking.

after the Port Hills fire, residents

were wanting to know what

other potential hazards hillside

residents could face and how

they could be better prepared

for them.

Board approved the proposed

water in heavy rainfall and

slowly release it back to Bells

Creek all to reduce the risk of

flooding. Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

member Sara Templeton said it

was a fantastic step for the area.

“We are going to fight this as

hard as we can,” Mr Carey said.

Ingear owner Ashok Ganda

said he liked the idea of the

cycleway along Ferry Rd but said

the city council need better options

around parking.

without a car park,” Mr Ganda

said.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Need more vitality?

The nutrient balance of the body is critical

for optimum aging. Research has shown

the body performs much better if all the

required nutrients are available in sufficient

quantities. The problem is it is very hard

to obtain enough if any of some of these

nutrients from a normal diet. Boron is one

of the many nutrients with amazing benefits

that is lacking in our diet. A 2014 double

blind placebo controlled human clinical

study of a patented form of the mineral

boron delivered significant reduction in

pain, stiffness and joint comfort with 80%

stopping or reducing medication and 87.5%

saying they had less or no stiffness in just 4

weeks. Boron also helps balance hormones

in both men and woman and can increase

fertility. It helps promote healthy muscle

mass, fights diabetes, strengthens the bones

and increases concentration and brain

function.

Pure Vitality are based on the West

Coast of the South Island. They aim to

manufacture life changing supplements

Help for

Arthritis and

circulation

problems

When an Otaki woman devised a means

of relieving her husband’s arthritic pain,

stiff joints and swollen ankles, she did not

anticipate the demand that would ensue

for her Aircycle. The inflatable exerciser,

allowed her husband to exercise his finger,

ankle, knee and hip joints while sitting

down. So effective was it that an arthritis

educator requested they be made for others.

A hospital registered it with Medsafe to

use in podiatry and diabetes clinics.

Physiotherapists and rest homes

applauded the results. The gentle exercise

results in improved circulation in hands

and feet. People report swelling in ankles

and night cramps are gone. Leg muscles are

strengthened and, with improved balance,

many advise they are able to walk further.

Joint, lower back and sciatic pain is eased.

People use the Aircycle while watching

TV or having a cup of tea. It assists in

combatting OOS and DVT and ideal for

using while sitting in the office and in a car

or plane. It’s so easy!

See Aircycle’s ad on this page for contact

Natural Joint Support

Just Got BETTER!

As we grow older we want to maintain

our health as much as possible.

Unfortunately for many of us our joints start

to let us down becoming stiff, sore, swollen,

reducing mobility and quality of life. Most

of these joints problems are caused by a

lack of cartilage or damage to the cartilage

which is the soft spongy material in all

joints between the moving bones. The body

continually produces cartilage but various

factors like digestive and health issues, a

lack of enough of the right nutrients in the

diet slow the production of this. If cartilage

wears away quicker than it is replaced

the bone ends can start rubbing together

causing reduced joint movement, pain,

swelling and inflammation of the joint.

PURE Vitality are a small company on

the West Coast of the South Island. They are

committed to producing the most effective

natural life changing health supplements

available.

They therefor have put a tremendous

amount of research into their new JOINT

VITALITY product which contains an

exclusive selection of best scientifically

researched high potency natural ingredients

to provide a multipronged approach to

joint health. As well as a full therapeutic

dose of the more common Glucosamine

and Chondroitin, Joint Vitality contains a

concentrated Deer Antler Velvet Extract

from PURE Vitality’s own Deer farm.

Deer antler velvet extract has astounded

scientists and health professionals with

its health restoring properties. Its natural

growth factors help stimulate the healing

of the body. Another unique ingredient in

JOINT VITALITY is Joint Fluid or megapotent

hyaluronic acid. This has been

shown in clinical trials to be more effective

than glucosamine and chondroitin.

Joint Vitality contains enhanced

absorption Turmeric extract as well as

the highest potency extract of Boswellia

available to reduce inflammation, swelling

and pain which speeds joint recovery and

formation of new cartilage.

The formula also provides antioxidants

from Grape Seed extract to support cellular

joint health as well as effective doses of

Vitamin D3, Zinc, Boron, Manganese,

Copper & Selenium that have all be shown

to be critical to optimum joint health.

This heavy duty comprehensive formula is

designed with the most researched highest

potency extracts available for maximum

fast lasting results. It is recommended

to take 3 capsules daily with food for the

first box or two to obtain the maximum

benefits. One box or 60 capsules is $49.90

with a Free joint cream while stocks last.

The facts about

home ventilation

Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need to

be suitably ventilated, either with opening

windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1

states: “The objective of this provision is

to safeguard people from illness or loss of

amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are

many benefits to forced, or mechanical,

ventilation over opening windows, including

warmth, security, reduction of outside noises

and reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from

outside via the roof space and force the stale air

out through gaps around windows and doors.

The incoming air from these

systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm

in winter or cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is

a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It

extracts air from the house and

at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air

pass through a heat exchanger,

which warms incoming air in

winter and cools in summer if

air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of

the energy which would be

wasted using a traditional positive pressure

system is recovered, resulting in significant

energy savings and therefore lower heating or

cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation

systems have been considerably more

expensive than traditional positive pressure

systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique

manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390

balanced pressure system can be installed for

a similar price as a traditional positive pressure

system.

Warming winter with

EnviroMaster

Are you struggling with the heat of Summer

or wanting to get organised for Winter? With

the ever changing weather patterns, heat

pumps have the flexibility of being able to

heat and cool which is an advantage no other

appliance can offer. This represents great

value for your investment as you can use it all

year round. The team at Enviro Master Ltd

can help keep you cool this Summer either at

home or work. Enviro Master supplies, installs

and services all the leading brands including

Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin.

This means our team can show you which

system and brand will best suit your needs.

We currently have savings up to $600

off the recommended retail price on

selected models.

Would you like to maximise the number

of days you can use your swimming pool?

Heating your pool can do this and one of the

most cost effective ways is with a water heat

pump. Enviro Master Ltd can supply, install

and service you swimming pool heat pump

providing you with a comfortable, extended

swimming season.

Servicing your heat pump is extremely

important to ensure that it is working as

effectively and efficiently as possible resulting

in a healthy, hygienic heat pump, lower power

bills and greater comfort. But beware, not

all cleaning companies are equal. We are

constantly hearing of people being charged

huge amounts for servicing and all they are

getting is a heat pump clean. We at Enviro

Master, are qualified engineers and therefore

are able to fully test and diagnose any problems

you may or may not be aware of with your

heat pump. Also, as we are associated with all

major brands, we are able to repair these under

warranty if they are still within the warranty

period.

It is important to remember, when selecting

an installer, the manufacturer’s warranty does

not cover the installation and consumers could

be responsible for any repair or damage caused

to the system due to poor installation. Enviro

Master’s five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration so

customers have an understanding on how it

will best meet their needs.

RSI, OOS or Gradual process

Injury can be treated!

What causes OOS? The Department

of Labour states: “One of the

favourable explanations for OOS is

that it is caused by muscles being

held tense or tight for too long.’’

These conditions may be caused

by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions,

vibrations, mechanical compression, or

sustained or awkward positions.

The shorter and tenser the muscle, the

harder it pulls on the places it attaches to

(e.g. the bone). When this happens in the

forearm the pull at those attachments and

tendons causes irritation and inflammation

of those areas. This will be noticed as pain in

the elbow and wrist. When this happens in

the neck and shoulder area, it will be noticed

as local pain, stiffness and sometimes

headaches. The nerves run right through

the muscles. Tension on the muscles causes

pressure on the nerves. As the muscles

shorten, the nerves running through them

have a tendency to both shorten and slide

less well. This causes the nerves to radiate

pain throughout the arm.

Triggerpoints are areas in your muscles,

where a few muscle fibres have contracted


in a knot. These knots (the hard and painful

areas in your muscles felt during massage)

weaken and shorten your muscles and can

cause referred pain.

This drawing is an example of pain areas

(the red area), caused by triggerpoints (the

black X).

This is your muscle’s reaction to continuous


irritation. In most cases, there are multiple

causes for this irritation. These could be:

repeated actions without breaks; constant

static posture resulting in constant muscle

contraction; lack of healthy blood flow; bad

posture resulting in continuous high loading

of some muscles, etc.

As you can see, your thumb pain can

originate in your neck. Pain in your little























finger or forearm

can originate in

your chest. This

is the reason that

your therapist

may treat an

area, other than


where you are

experiencing


pain.

In the following

drawing you can

see the painful

areas in the head

caused by the

triggerpoint in the neck. This is often the

result of poor posture.

Physical Sense has been treating

this condition for the last 25 years.


Their experience is:


• Most of the patients who have had their


pain for less than a year leave this clinic free

of pain (but they have to be very careful to

avoid relapses).

• When the OOS pain has been there

for more than a year, that percentage drops

to 60%.

• The other 40% will leave the clinic with

relief of pain and with knowledge about

numerous strategies to relieve and handle

the remaining pain.

















Suffering from OOS/RSI/

Gradual Process Injury?







Physical Sense has published the “OOS

Client Information Booklet”. It is full of

handy tips on how to self treat and avoid

this condition.

The spacious open plan kitchen/living/

dining area is a fantastic place for the whole

family to gather with its contemporary

décor and warm, homely feel. The kitchen

really impresses with its immaculate

granite finish, modern appliances

including a separate oven and cooktop,

dishwasher, range hood, waste disposal

and breakfast bar. While the separate

lounge and downstairs guest bedroom with

ensuite strengthens the functionality of this

home, offering ample storage and a vacuum

system.

Outside, the sunny, private gardens boast

absolute privacy with beautiful plastered

walls and timber fencing featuring builtin

windows, and two gorgeous glass

and rock water features creating a truly

tranquil ambience. The entertainment

area has plenty of space to host the whole

family, and the manicured gardens and

shed tucked around the side offer a perfect

hobby area for the green thumbed among

us. Boasting quality fixtures and fittings

throughout, this immaculate home is sure

to wow with a double plus carpeted garage

with internal access and a pull-down attic

space completing the appeal.

The excellent location really helps to

solidify the strength of your investment,

with all the shops, cafes and amenities

of Northwood’s shopping centre within

walking distance and Clearwater Golf Club

nearby. Membership to Styx Mill Country

Club is an added bonus with its resort style

facilities including: tennis courts, indoor

pool, gym, sauna and spa.

running

red lights

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CHRISTCHURCH’S growing

red light-running problem is

leaving dozens of injuries in its

wake.

In the past year, there were 65

crashes which left people

injured after drivers ran

red lights, up from 42 the

year before.

At the city’s top 10

worst intersections this

month, almost 5400

drivers ran red lights in a

single day.

That was up 31 per cent from

last year, and 64 per cent more

than in 2014.

They do not include people

turning right across an intersection

on a red light.

The worst for red light-runners

was the intersection of Blenheim

Rd and Mandeville St, where 652

were detected on a single day on

Thursday, December 1.

Police figures have also grown.

In the last year, 1491 people

were ticketed for running red

Canterbury road policing

manager Inspector Al Stewart

(left) said he was disappointed to

see the rise.

“It puts people at risk. They

may get away with it 99

out of 100 times, but it is

that one time which could

leave someone injured or

killed,” he said.

He said police had a

focus last year on bad

driving at intersections,

which included red

light-running, and that would

continue until the numbers

improved.

People often had different

excuses when ticketed for running

red lights, but there was no

acceptable reason, he said.

“A lot of people are simply

focused on other things and

don’t see it, but that is just as

unacceptable as running a light

deliberately, because when driving

you should be focused on the

task at hand,” he said.
