Exploring greatness

• By Noah Graham

HILLVIEW Christian School’s

biennial production is exploring

the idea of greatness while

highlighting a traditional

New Zealand tale.

The show Invitation will

boast 63 year 7 to 10 pupils

and will emphasise grace,

forgiveness and love through

three different stories.

The three stories portray

an overarching message of

how every person is invited

to greatness but will often

miss the opportunity because

it could be through someone

we love, a problem to solve or

a job to be done – something

human’s tend to overlook,

music teacher and co-director

of the show, Philippa Becker

said.

Mrs Becker said she was codirecting

the show with the school’s

drama teacher, Xanda Eves, and it will

feature a variety of singing, dancing

and drama.

•The show will be performed

on April 11 and 12 in the

school’s gymnasium with

tickets available from the

school’s office.

Westmorland Residents

Association chairman Bill

Kingston says.

Mr Kingston said he was

frustrated city council kept

delaying its plans for the Hoon

Hay, Cashmere and Worsleys Rds

intersection.

Mr Kingston’s anger came as

construction for the intersection

was re-phased through the

Annual Plan process with an

expected completion date pushed

back to the 2018/19 financial year

and a $800,000 increase in costs,

totalling about $3.7 million.

“It’s totally disappointing. It

seems any plan they make, they

change,” Mr Kingston said.

At a council meeting in September

last year, funding to improve

the intersection was brought

forward for the earliest practical

construction date in the 2017/18

year, and an increase in the available

budget after residents singled

out the Hoon Hay, Worsleys and

Cashmere Rds intersection with

concerns the Port Hills Adventure

WOOLSTON MAN Michael

Reynolds has a pretty cool idea –

a community fruit and vegetable

garden in his local park.

Michael wants a group of local

residents to help him establish

the garden in Radley Park.

The produce would then be

distributed to those who can’t afford

to buy fruit and vegetables.

Far too many kids these days

go without fruit and vegetables.

I can’t understand why because

it’s cheaper than KFC and Mc-

Donald’s, which they seem to eat

a lot of.

So a pat on the back for Michael

in his bid to get families

eating more healthily. If you

Funds sought to fix car park

• By Noah Graham

SPREYDON residents make a

bid tomorrow to get funding

to make an exit from the

Barrington shopping centre

safer.

The Spreydon Neighbourhood

Network has a deputation to the

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board to push for money to

improve the exit on Barrington

St. The network wants improvements

funded from the current

city council budget.

If it does not, the group will

be hoping to fund the project

through this

year’s Annual

Plan, Spreydon

Neighbourhood

Association

secretary Sonya

Hodder (left)

said.

However, if the

project was to be funded from

the Annual Plan, she was worried

work would not begin on

the car park entrance and exit for

another year, she said.

If it were to be funded through

minor works, the project could

be started within months, she

said.

For more than three years, the

group has been lobbying to stop

drivers exiting right out of the

car park onto Barrington St as

well as removing the right-hand

turn from Barrington St into the

car park.

She said cars turning right

must cross a line of traffic and

with the amount of vehicles it is

just a “disaster waiting to happen”.

“It’s concerning for pedestrians,

cyclists and the elderly who

want to cross the entrance on the

footpath.”

Mrs Hodder said there had

been numerous engineers assigned

to their project with the

closest of any real progress being

one engineer producing nine options

for the exit.

She said the community board,

Barrington shopping centre and

residents were supportive of

removing the right-hand turn

out of the car park but shopping

centre management did not want

to remove the right-hand turn

into it.

She said the shopping centre

was the closest shopping hub for

most of the Spreydon and surrounding

communities with the

exit impacting a lot of people.

renewal is likely to get under

told the Spreydon-Cashmere

that community governance

to ensure local community

groups are involved in the

process.

NOMINATIONS WANTED

Nominations for community

services awards will close

this month. Time is running

out to nominate community

members in your area who

deserve recognition. Those

who you think have made their

community a better place need

to be nominated by 5pm, April

Idea for food hub in park

• By Noah Graham

A WOOLSTON resident needs

a show of support to help his

communal food hub dream

flourish.

Michael Reynolds wants to

establish the Roimata Community

Food Hub at Radley Park,

to help serve the Woolston and

Opawa communities with fresh

fruit and vegetables.

However, to get

things under way,

he needs clear

support from a

core group of the

community who

would be willing

to undertake the

Sally Buck

project, Mr Reynolds said.

The Te Waka Unua School

board of trustees member said

it would be great if a regular

group of community members

were to put their hands up and

be willing to help maintain the

food hub on a consistent basis.

“Around 20, consistent people

who would be committed to getting

it off the ground are needed

and will help give us a strong

base to work from,” he said.

Mr Reynolds said the multifaceted

community food hub

would function similarly to others

around the city and would

fruit and berries and large beds

to grow vegetables and herbs.

“It would be a completely

willing to contribute with some

sort of labour, you’d be able to

take your share of the produce.”

The produce harvested from

the hub could also be used to

help those in the community

who need it.

Ideally, the hub would have a

strong emphasis on sustainability

with a rainwater harvesting

and composting toilet systems

to help reduce the impact on

water systems, while maximising

the available space.

Mr Reynolds was unsure how

much of the 3ha park land the

hub would use, he said.

However, he said city council

and the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

chairwoman Sally Buck were

supporting the project.

Ms Buck said she fully supported

the project and would

mention it at the next community

board meeting.

She said it was a “fantastic

idea” to have a community garden

for residents to use.

Community projects such as

the food hub are exactly what

Woolston needs to reinvigorate

the area and to change people’s

opinions, Ms Buck said.

She said the hub could become

focal point for the community.

Ms Buck said she would work

with Mr Reynolds to fund the

project but first the community

needs to show they want the hub.

Those interested in being a

part of the project should email

woolstonwarriors@gmail.

through the Roimata Community

Food Hub Facebook page.

•From page 1

The intersection is one of a

number of safety projects within

the 10-year LTP programme

and has had 21 crashes in the

2010-2014 five-year period, with

a KiwiRap Christchurch priority

listing at 47th.

The city council asset planning

team leader, Richard Holland,

said the project had been pushed

back one year in order to allow

design to proceed in 2017/18 and

construction in 2018/19.

“In effect that only delays

the work by six months,’’ he

said.

Mr Kingston said he has been

trying to get city council to sort

out the intersection for more

than 20 years but felt there has

been a lack of communication

between the community and city

council.

He said there was a mentality

within city council to “avoid

working with the community.”

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board chairwoman Karolin

only going to get more complicated

of a 380-home Cashmere Estates

The Somerfield Residents’

as chair has been involved in

various projects to help bring

positive change to the community.

Her most recent efforts

included setting up a petition

to reinstate a bus service

along Selwyn and Somerfield

to maintain city cemeteries

and supporting Studholme St

She thanked her family as

Rotary club president Roger

Pollard said Mrs Tobbell fully

deserved the award because

she had put so much time and

work into making the Somerfield

community better.

“She does it quietly and does

not expect any accolades.”

He said Mrs Tobbell’s efforts

were “selfless.”

hear the heavy swoop of wood pigeon

to still have these creatures share our

space and enhance our landscape.

Up close, their feathers shine with a

metallic luminous quality and when

painting the whites of their eyes they

each develop personalities.

Interestingly the birds in this show

have mainly been on the wing and

it seems to reflect a current state of

mind with a sense of escapism and

freedom.

Colour excites me and the time

seemed right to challenge myself with

a fresh exciting palette along with my

new subject matter. Embracing colour

in my new pieces has been a joy and

Hard copy dictionaries still relevant in schools

Ferrymead

Rotary Club

member Barbara

Crooks talks

about the value

and importance

of hard copy

dictionaries in schools

It’s a developing debate –

dictionaries in traditional

book form against the ethereal

internet.

It’s a poser that crops up each

year for Ferrymead Rotary

members and several schools.

For some years now

Ferrymead Rotary has supplied

colourful illustrated dictionaries

for year 4 children in some local

schools.

This year, 160 dictionaries

in total were given to Bromley,

Te Waka Unua and St Anne’s

schools.

Each child is given a dictionary

to use at school and eventually to

take home.

In most schools, they are used

as a class set until the end of the

year when the children are able

to keep them.

The schools say that if the

dictionaries were given to the

children at the beginning of the

year, there would be none in the

classroom by the end of the year.

As a result, children who came

to the school during the year

would not have a dictionary to

work with.

In spite of the growing lure of

technology and computerised access

to information, teachers say

the hard copy dictionaries are

still valued and used alongside

the internet.

For some children, the dictionary

will be the first book they

have ever owned.

Ferrymead Rotary hopes these

dictionaries will help launch the

children on a lifelong reading

journey.

Ferrymead Rotary is assisted

in providing the dictionaries by

the Lorna and Bill Boyd Trust.

The trust offers all Rotary

clubs in New Zealand subsidised

dictionaries to give to low-decile

schools.

If you want to come along

and see what we get up to at

Ferrymead Rotary, you would be

very welcome.

For more information, call Kai

Tovgaard on 384 9485.

WELL READ: This year, the Ferrymead Rotary Club donated 160

dictionaries to pupils at Te Waka Unua, Bromley, and St Anne’s

schools.

For all your blind repair and cleaning requirements

The Blind Care Company has been

cleaning and repairing the region’s blinds

for over 60 years. Those six decades

have seen changes in both fashion and

technology. Styles have ranged from

festooned fabric swags to straightforward

and still popular holland roller blinds,

from vertical to horizontal slat systems,

and in every colour or pattern popular

since the 1960s.

Whatever your style, the Blind Care

Company has the expertise to keep your

window treatments looking fresh and

working efficiently. Using only ecofriendly

chemicals, the build-up of dirt,

dust, grease, nicotine and smoke residue

can be removed so that your blinds

smell fresh and are restored to their

original glory. The company can repair

blinds also, having a huge range of parts

in stock. And if you want something

completely new, a great range of blinds is

available for purchase.

The company prides itself on efficient

service, providing a fast turn-around,

with most work taking one or two

days, and a same day cleaning option is

available. It makes it as easy as possible

for clients. The Cashel Street location

couldn’t be more convenient and a pickup

and drop-off service is available. 150

blinds per day can be cleaned at this site,

or one of their mobile vans can do up to

50 per day. That means they will come to

your home or office, remove and clean

your blinds on the spot and reinstall them

for you.

A cut-down and size alteration service

is available in order that the blinds you

bought are a perfect fit.

They are experts in their field with a

huge amount of experience to draw on.

In fact, all their staff has been on board

for at least 8 years, and many up to 20

years. Whatever the job involves, they

will work hard to make sure it gets done,

including one job of 800 blinds which

they completed in 4 days.

The effective use of low level laser

treatment for assisting in the healing

of deep tissue and joint problems has

been used for more than 40 years.

This treatment, which uses photo

stimulation of mitochondria in cells,

is able to penetrate into the site of

injury to promote healing and reduce

inflammation – relaxing muscles and

reducing pain.

Southern Chiropractic principal

chiropractor Andre Grob has seen

how the non-invasive treatment has

resulted in impressive results for his

clients.

“I attended the World Congress

conference on lower back pain in

Singapore last year where they

reinforced the use of low level laser

treatment on lower back pain.

“It was great to confirm the

technology I have been treating

my patients with has been highly

researched with clinical studies

showing the positive effect on acute

and chronic musculoskeletal pain.”

The treatment, which only takes 15

to 20 minutes, is especially effective

with muscle and joint pain, stiffness

associated with arthritis, neck and

lower back pain. It is approved by

the FDA and Meta analysis by the

Lancet Medical Journal also endorses

the treatment saying it can reduce

pain intensity, disability and the

reoccurrence of pain.

Andre can also provide other

treatments including adjustments,

exercises, stretches and muscle

therapy – to readjust the body or

help it heal from conditions that are

physical in origin.

These can include problems such

as back pain, muscle spasms,

headaches and poor posture.

What you may not know is that it

is also completely appropriate to

receive chiropractic care even though

you may not have symptoms. Unlike

standard medical doctors who you

visit when you have symptoms that

need to be treated, chiropractors

offer adjustments to improve spinal

alignment and overall wellbeing –

and can prevent the pain or other

symptoms even starting.

Going to a chiropractor is much the

same as going to the dentist or gym

or even leading a healthy life – it

prevents problems from reaching

critical stage where you can become

incapacitated and as long as you

keep up with regular visits, then you

continue to enjoy the benefits of a life

feeling well.

“I have been providing Chiropractic

Care for patients for more than

15 years and during that time I have

gained outstanding results. If you are

experiencing back or neck pain or feel

that treatment may be of benefit to

you please give me a call.”

ACC recognises chiropractors as

primary health care specialists when

it comes to spinal care so you do not

need a referral from a GP to seek

treatment for a back or neck injury as

a result of accidental causes. In the

event of an accident we can initiate

a claim directly and if it is accepted,

treatment costs will be subsidised.

The first steps in the major

redevelopment of Hornby High School have

been taken with the library and

administration building vacated and the staff

and students accommodated in temporary

structures elsewhere on the school grounds.

The vacated buildings are now awaiting

demolition, principal Robin Sutton says, with

the Ministry of Education soon to announce

the successful contractor for the

construction of the first new building. The

80-metre-long, L-shaped building will occupy

the footprint of the present building as well

as a large open area on the school grounds.

In 2016 we reconsidered our vision as a school,

and resolved that our aspiration is to be ‘A centre

of creative excellence’ in everything that we do,

whether visual arts or chemistry, volleyball or

music. The world demands fewer people who

can do repetitive tasks and more people who

can think creatively and critically. In doing this

we haven’t forgotten the importance of the

strong relationships that we build with all of our

students, and the importance of individualising

learning pathways so that we come as close

as we can to meeting every individual student’s

needs. With term one gone, there is such

department and library, this expansive

building will also house the science, art and

technology departments, the whare,

student café and the Learning Commons area

(formerly the library). The first stage of the

rebuild project includes a new gymnasium

complex of basketball-court size, which will

sit alongside the existing gymnasium.

A key feature of the building will be

flexibility. As Mr Sutton points out, it is

expected to last for many decades, but there

is no way of knowing how education

methods might change and what the

requirements of teachers and students might

be, even in 10 or 20 years’ time. For that

reason this and all the school’s new buildings

have been designed on flexible rather than

rigid, old-school lines.

Contractors are expected to set up on

site within one to two weeks following the

demolition, with construction likely to start

by late May, Mr Sutton says.

Another innovation at Hornby High, which

doesn’t involve a new build but rather a

re-design, has been the development of the

performing arts school, which has seen

buildings being remodelled and the

auditorium, drama and music departments

incorporated under one roof.

“Already this has brought more

wonderful evidence of our students embracing

our vision for creative excellence, and everything

that it demands.

Our focus is firmly on improved academic

performance. Central to that is our participation

in the Manaiakalani Outreach programme that

causes learning using an approach called ‘Learn

Create Share’. Chromebooks are vital to support

student learning and the evidence is growing

almost daily to show that this has a massive

positive effect on student learning. Thank you to

all whanau who have so far been able to make

this significant investment in their tamariki’s

education. Our relationships with students and

whanau and vital, and we continue to emphasise

these as the essential base for all learning.

Our student group performing at Polyfest in

March were everything that we could want, while

we also saw the re-emergence of rugby league

as a sport at Hornby High School with teams

in both the secondary schools junior and senior

league Nines competitions. Their performances

revealed a depth of talent that bodes well for the

next few years. Their approaches on the field

were also examples of students taking calculated

Email: office@hornby.school.nz www.hornby.school.nz

collaboration between teachers from the two

departments, and students working together

on projects,” Mr Sutton says.

The principal has a vision for his school

and his students as ‘A centre of creative

excellence’, and this is based around three

goals – learning, well-being and a willingness

to take risks.

“It’s an ongoing process and we are already

seeing signs of improvement, with students

gaining increased self-confidence and

self-belief. It’s very rewarding to see that.”

A centre of creative excellence

risks in the approaches to sport, and examples

of the sort of risk taking and leadership that

we have set as a strategic goal for the school.

We are very proud of them all.

BUSINESS PARK DEVELOPMENT

A BUZZ OF ACTIVITY

The development of Hornby’s Waterloo

Business Park is progressing at an impressive

pace, assistant development manager Joel

Webber says.

“It’s a dynamic and constantly evolving

landscape. There are currently 12 individual

sites under construction and we are expecting

ground to be broken on a further three sites

in the near future, so there’s a real buzz of

activity on-site at the moment.”

Roading work presently underway in the

area will boost the profile of the park once it

is completed, Mr Webber says.

“The NZTA-sponsored realignment of

Pound Road through to Main South Rd is

progressing well, with completion

programmed to occur in the fourth quarter

of 2017. This will significantly increase heavy

vehicle movements along Pound Rd and

provide unparalleled profile and visibility to

Waterloo Business Park sites with frontage to

Pound Rd,” Mr Webber says.

“We understand that the programmed

stage two of this work, which will eventually

connect an extended Pound Rd to the

Southern Motorway extension between

Springs RD and Rolleston, has been

fast-tracked for completion ahead of the

original three-year timeframe.

“Since our last update, Waterloo Rd has

been diverted and the course of the new road

runs internally within Waterloo Business Park,

which fits part of the bigger roading upgrades

and realignments in the area.”

In terms of land subdivision, Waterloo

Business Park has only a further two stages of

development to deliver (Stages 5 and 6) prior

to completion of the project, Mr Webber says.

Stage 5 (6.3ha) is programmed to be

completed and titled by early August 2017,

while Islington Green, Waterloo Business

Park’s central Parkland, measuring nearly

24,000sqm, will be completed as part of the

Stage 5 works.

Mr Webber says Islington Green will deliver

“unprecedented open/green space and

recreational facilities within a business park

context for staff, visitors and local residents

to enjoy”.

Stage 6 (6.87ha) will round out the land

subdivision at Waterloo and completion is

expected by the fourth quarter 2017, he says.

To support the commercial development,

there are plans to redevelop the historic

Islington Meat Processing Plant as a retail

precinct, with a focus on retaining and

redeveloping a number of the historic,

Victorian-era industrial buildings. To be known

as Islington Square, this will provide a

comprehensive convenience retail offering

within the business park, Mr Webber says.

“We have had a number of studies

commissioned that estimate that once it’s

completed, built-out and fully operational,

Waterloo Business Park will have between

3000 and 5000 employees.

“With so many employees on site, it was a

logical progression to provide a convenience

retail offering within the development,” Mr

Webber says.

Uses under consideration include food &

beverage, pharmacies, drycleaners, and

childcare facilities.

MORE REASONS FOR SHOPPERS

TO VISIT THE HUB

Already a huge drawcard for Hornby

shoppers, The Hub Hornby is now offering

even more reasons for people from there

and right around the city to visit, with school

holiday attractions, new shops and a new

customer service.

Bound to create a buzz, Lego will be at

The Hub during the April school holidays.

From Tuesday, April 25 until Saturday April 29

between 11am and 2pm every day, children of

all ages will be able to have an authentic Lego

experience.

Brought in from Australia, the Lego

immersive zone features Lego build

challenges and other Lego-themed activities,

all within a special Lego-themed area.

Stores that sell Lego at The Hub will also

be promoting their Lego ranges at this time.

“Lego has such a universal appeal,” centre

manager, Jason Marsden says.

“Whilst it has been around since 1932 it

has stayed very current, both with the

technology it now incorporates and

partnerships with some great movie

franchises such as the very popular Star Wars

range.”

Another new arrival at The Hub is the

brand-new Spark store. Situated at the north

end of the new food court, the store features

an open-plan layout, timber finishes and large

digital screens on the two main walls.

The most apparent feature of the new site

is the large, glazed end wall, which faces north

and lets lots of natural light into the site.

From the food court, the natural light and

external view draws the eye to the store.

The introduction of plastic gift cards at The

Hub means the days of dog-eared gift

vouchers or vouchers that have gone through

the wash are now over. Available in a choice

of two designs with matching holders, the

new gift cards are a convenient way to buy

a gift for that hard-to-shop-for person, or a

great way to reward staff.

The cards can be loaded with any amount

and used at almost every shop in the centre.

A quick and easy online page will tell

customers how much credit is left on a

card, so all the value can be easily used and

balances tracked. Using a new card is even

easier – it takes just a simple swipe in the

Eftpos terminal with no PIN required.

Just Cuts Hornby, Shop 49A, The Hub, Christchurch

The ‘Just Cuts’ Salon in The Hub, Hornby is completely Christchurch owned and

operated. Hairdresser Michael Turner, with over 40-plus years’ international experience, is

the owner and ‘on the floor’ Team Leader, while his wife Angela works behind the scenes

looking after admin, advertising and marketing.

Their staff members are all local people, with nigh on 200 years of hairdressing between

them. Four of the stylists are mums with children, boys and girls, and ages ranging from

seven to 18, so there is very little they don’t know about the latest styles, be it shaves, quiffs,

bobs, comb-overs, undercuts, layers – and there’s some hair tattooing going on as well!

Michael and Angela are proud to provide jobs for three mums returning to the workforce.

Three of their staff live in Hornby (and just walk to work), then three in Rolleston, Leeston

and the furthest away is from Ilam.

Many clients and staff know each other from school or various activities their children

are involved in – even dance school for one of the staff. So the atmosphere in the salon

is distinctively ‘very family and very friendly’, with many a catch-up happening right at the

reception desk!

Just Cuts also offers the exclusive Justice Hair Care Products range, and the staff are fully

qualified to advise on which products are perfect for your specific needs. These products

are not tested on animals, are biodegradable, and being concentrated are very cost effective.

Angela and Michael are also involved with the local community, generously supporting

local schools and organisations with contributions whenever possible.

NAVYn

Navy is one of the most popular colours this season. Best of all, because it’s a darker shade of blue, it is both flattering and slimming, too.

It’s also a better alternative to black, as it’s less harsh and carries an air of sophistication. Victoria Tait believes navy is most certainly the new black.

TRAVEL BAGS

FOR EVERY DESTINATION

As the name suggests, Just Bagz in Dressmart Hornby is filled with hundreds of

bags, with the main focus being on travel bags of every description.

This family-run business, owned and operated by Graham and Julieann Griffiths,

specialises in quality luggage from leading manufacturers including Samsonite,

Eminent and Riccardo, with 90 per cent of the stock being brought in by the couple.

Graham has been in the industry for over 40 years, covering manufacturing,

wholesaling and retailing, so with that experience and knowledge he can advise

customers on the right bag to suit their requirements and budget.

The bag purchased may depend on how many people will be using it, for example

a family, how they are travelling – whether by road or air, and how much they want

to take with them, or bring back.

The first choice customers have, is between hard and soft luggage and this comes

down to personal preference, Graham says. In both types there is a huge selection

of sizes, styles and fashion colours – with modern luggage also being much more

user-friendly. Ninety per cent of bags now have four wheels, making them very easy

to manoeuvre and transport. Just Bagz also has a range of travel accessories

including TSA locks and adaptors, passport holders and luggage labels.

There is also a wide selection of backpacks – adult sizes in various styles, and

children’s styles with novelty designs of their favourite cartoon characters.

Also on display are wallets, shoulder bags and handbags in both leather and

man-made materials, in a wide range of prices.

So, call in for a browse, and have a chat to Graham or Julieann about what you

are looking for. They will be very happy to give you some advice for your travel

needs.

Heat pump specialists offer expertise & hot prices

As winter approaches and thoughts turn to home heating, the idea of having a heat pump installed is seen as an ideal and

cost-effective solution for many homeowners.

That’s where advice from residential

heat pump specialists DC Installation

Services can be invaluable.

A small Christchurch owned and

operated business run by husband

and wife Daniel and Mel Cooper, DC

Installation Services not only has the

heat pump expertise and experience,

it also has the buying power to offer

customers top-brand heat pumps at

very competitive prices, Daniel says.

“We can come to your home to carry

out a site inspection and then advise on

the best heat pump for your situation.

We can give a quick,on-the-spot

quote with no obligation. Once you

book us, installation is done quickly

too, and we offer a full guarantee

on our workmanship for the life

of the unit.”

The company supplies all the major

brands, but highly recommends

Mitsubishi Electric heat pumps, as they

believe the quality and reliability exceed

that of other brands on the market.

“Mitsubishi Electric has carried out

extensive research and development to

produce heat pumps that are specially

designed to work efficiently in our

climate,” says Daniel.

Another advantage is that customers

having an existing heat pump replaced

with a Mitsubishi Electric model can

use the existing pipe work, which cuts

down on the cost.

DC Installation Services has an online

Trade Me store, which has generated a

lot of positive feedback.

“We have had well over 150

independent customer reviews, and

they are all 100 per cent positive,”

Daniel says.

LOCALS TO HAVE THEIR SAY ON NEW LEISURE CENTRE

Stephanie Bushell Audrey Kimble Lyndsay Ellis Carl Dodds

“It will make the whole area much

better.”

“A new place to go would be lovely.” “I would definitely use the pool.” “A nice addition to Hornby.”

From late April, Hornby residents will have

the opportunity to have their say on the

planned Southwest Leisure Centre when the

Christchurch City Council begins the

consultation process.

At present there are three potential sites

for the new centre – Denton Park, Kyle Park

and Warren Park, with residents being able to

state their preference, or suggest another site.

As part of the consultation, the council will

also ask if residents want the pool, library and

service centre to be built in the same locality

or separately.

The consultation will run from late April

through until June, which will enable groups

that meet monthly to discuss the options

when they meet in May.

Council representatives will be going out

to meet the local residents and will also be

contacting all the schools in the area.

Councillor Vicki Buck says there will be

lots of opportunity for formal and less formal

feedback, with formal drop-in centres at a

number of venues, meetings with all groups

who use the parks and also newspaper

advertising.

“The council’s ‘Have your say’ will seek

people’s views as well as many other ways

including signs at the parks and we’ll ask all

local schools and preschools to put it in their

newsletter. There will also be a letterbox drop

to all neighbours,” Ms Buck said.

Western News canvassed Hornby shoppers

about their thoughts on the planned centre

and what facilities they would be most likely

to use.

Hornby resident Stephanie Bushell said she

would use all the facilities.

“I have young nieces, so for them the pool

will be brilliant. It will make the whole area

much better.”

Audrey Kimble of Hornby said she would

use the library.

“I go to the library here all the time, and it

would be nice to have a bigger library. A new

place to go would be lovely.”

Lyndsay Ellis, also a local Hornby resident,

said he would definitely use the pool. His

wife Elizabeth agreed, saying she goes to the

Graham Condon pool, but it’s a long way to

go, so it would be good to have a pool closer

to where they live.

Hornby resident Carl Dodds said the pool

would be a “nice addition to Hornby”.

Most people spoken to believed that

Denton Park would be the best location for

the new centre.

Dr Chris Hendry, a health service

researcher, said that before building new

facilities councils needed to look at the

demographics of the particular area, to see

what was needed and what was most

appropriate.

“There should also be a point of difference

between community hubs like this, so they are

not competing with each other,” Dr Hendry

said.

It would be a good idea if the new

Southwest Leisure Centre had a pool that

was suitable for the elderly to use, she said.

“It needs to be an indoor pool or at least

have some roof cover. I also think it would

be good if rest home residents from the local

area could be brought to the pool,” she said.

COSY COFFEE SHOP TASTY FOOD

A quirky little coffee shop in Hornby is set to become a destination for anyone who enjoys

freshly made food and good coffee in a quiet, cosy spot where they can chat.

Owned and operated by Rebecca Robertson, Catering in a Box is built almost entirely from

recycled pallets, and was constructed by Rebecca herself.

“I have a creative background and I’ve always tried to build my own furniture and upcycle

where I can. I had a vision for the café and it turned out to be much more than my vision,”

Rebecca says.

Having built her café, Rebecca, who is also a former truck driver, turned her wide-ranging

talents to creating delicious food for her customers.

“I bake everything from scratch. I use free-range eggs and I don’t use any pre-mixes. My

passion for food comes from my granddad who taught me to cook from a very young age.”

The selection of food includes pies, sausage rolls, filled rolls, muffins and cakes, which

customers can buy to take away or sit and enjoy.

“It’s quiet here, so people can have a conversation without a lot of background noise,”

Rebecca says.

“I also have mums coming in for a takeaway coffee and going to Branston Park with their

children.”

Catering in a Box can also cater for your next event, corporate or private, from platters to

buffet and even the cake.

Catering in a Box is located in Witham Street, off Amyes Road. Opening hours are from

7.30am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday.

Don’t expect Toyota’s big Land Cruiser 200

to change much in the next few years.

The reason being is that the platform on

which it is based has already served the test

of time in terms of how it has been

engineered for purpose. It has also been

constantly upgraded to earn the reputation as

one of the industry’s best off-road drivelines.

The ladder chassis, the four-wheel-drive

mechanicals and the big engine all combine to

provide a vehicle which is an off-road

champion and a station wagon/sport utility

vehicle with few competitors.

The Land Cruiser 200 has just had another

make-over, and I think that is all you can

expect from Toyota and Land Cruiser at this

stage. The changes Toyota has made to the

Land Cruiser go a long way to keep the model

fresh without compromising its ability.

For 2016 the Land Cruiser gets new frontal

treatment – bonnet, grille and bumper – while

TOYOTA’S

LAND CRUISER 200

By Ross Kiddie

the inside gets some new kit including a rear

entertainment system with two

individual screens. The latter kept a nine-yearold

entertained during the time I travelled a

long highway route.

Little has changed under the bonnet. Sitting

there is a 4.5-litre, twin-turbocharged diesel

engine. It is rated with mammoth power

outputs of 200kW and 650Nm, power is

available all through the rev band, it is strong

and energetic, taking into account that it does

have to haul up to nearly three-tonne.

The Cruiser in this form has a willingness

beneath the throttle that is uncanny, and it

does so with a characteristic V8 growl that is

delightful to listen to.

It also has reasonable fuel usage statistics.

Toyota claims a combined cycle average of

9.5-litres per 100km (30mpg), which is not

that far distant to my 11.1l/100km (25mpg)

which incorporated a long highway drive,

achieving an 8l/100km (35mpg) instantaneous

figure at 100km/h, the engine barely turning

over at just 1800rpm.

Drive is sent through a six-speed

transmission and it is a beauty in terms of

refinement and shift quality. How it harnesses

that huge torque flow yet delivers with such

sophistication amazes me.

The Land Cruiser has ride quality to envy, it

floats over bumps and ruts, yet has the

rugged essentials so that off-road travel can

be completed capably. And that is the secret

of Land Cruiser, it is soft and sultry to drive in

the everyday environment, yet it is technically

superior when it comes to life off-the-beatentrack.

I took the evaluation car on a riverbank

route which follows the Ashley River, it was

perfect for the role with huge grip and drive

programs which can be dialled in depending

on the surface likely to be encountered.

The two main dials are for low and high

range, but there is also a crawl control

mechanism and multi-terrain select which

regulates wheelspin depending on the type of

ground encountered. The driver can dial up

the appropriate setting within the choices.

The Land Cruiser is complex, there’s no

denying that, but the result is extraordinary

off-road prowess, it is so capable the driver

can glean confidence from the vehicle, and yet

at the same time each occupant is cocooned

in a lap of luxury.

The test car was the range-topping VX

Limited model which sits at $133,490, there is

a lower spec model at $121, 900; however, if

you are serious about off-roading the Limited

would be the best pick with its kinetic

dynamic suspension system which improves

ride quality and performance off-road.

Not only has the Land Cruiser been given

a makeover, it is still the quintessential family

wagon with eight seats, perfect for the school

run or whatever the constraints are during

city driving. Interior space and

WESTERN SOUTHERN NEWS VIEW

associated comfort is vast, and it has a high

level of safety for all occupants.

Convenience features are too numerous to

mention but there are the usual high profile

items such as satellite navigation, electric

driver’s seat, four-zone climate control,

sophisticated audio and complex trip

computer, the latter displayed through two

digital dash panel readouts.

At almost 5m the Land Cruiser makes no

apologies for its size, but it has ability in a

corner which adds to the feeling of control, it

sits solidly on the road, while steerage is

relatively precise through huge tyres (285/60

x 18in Yokohama Geolander).

The Land Cruiser is most certainly an

off-road champion, yet it also serves in the

every day role. Thousands of buyers new and

pre-owned from Japan will attest to that, there

are many on our roads, and the facelift model

builds heavily on that success.

The Lexus F series cars have always been

one of my favourites from the marque.

It all started with the introduction of the

IS series in 2007; that car was available with

a 5-litre V8, the concept of a big engine in a

small car has always appealed to me.

There have been several V8s across the

Lexus lineup before and since, although I

think it would be fair to say that the 5-litre

V8 has been Lexus’ best kept secret given

that today the brand has a huge emphasis on

hybrid power.

That aside, a new generation GS F has

landed and, as you can guess, the F represents

V8, the same 4969cc unit which has powered

the performance arm of the Lexus brand.

The GS is a lot bigger than the IS

mentioned in my introduction, but

performance isn’t hindered, the GS F is a

monster regarding power output and

performance, and it arrives in a coupe-like

sedan body style which oozes desire and

practicality.

Landing here at $174,900, the GSF also

comes loaded with goodies, and much of that

is sight unseen. It has all of the latest technical

components which combine for safety and

performance. It is a complicated car which

is designed for high-speed motoring but also

has the manners which promote casual

driving for city speeds.

However, it is mostly a car which beckons

for the open roads, and there are driverselectable

sport mode protocols which can

be tailored to suit any driving style or

conditions.

In simple mechanical terms, the GS has a

longitudinally-mounted engine up front with

drive channelled through an eight-speed

Up front, the engine is rated with a massive

351kW and 530Nm of torque. If you take

into account that peak power is available at

7100rpm and torque across a wide spread

powerhouse, but it revs freely to the top end

Lexus claim a 4.6sec from a standstill to

lunge from 80km/h to 120km/h in 3.8sec.

Such are the power outputs a lot is asked

of the traction control system. Even with

huge rear rubber (275/35 x 19in), the grip is

challenged, the low profile Michelin tyres are

as good as you can get in a sporty car, but

under load even they struggle.

The fully independent front wishbone/rear

multiple link system aids traction along with

providing a fabulous, comfortable ride. In

standard mode the ride is glorious, and even

if you select the sports modes which firm the

suspension, there is little compromise in ride

quality.

I took the test car on the road I only use

for quick cars, the route to Lake Coleridge

Village is a mix of corners which will test

any chassis. The GS was in its element in the

quick and slow stuff. It has steering to envy,

feedback and control is millimetre precise,

turn-in is direct, and body balance perfectly

even. With the force of the engine out of a

corner it is a car which pleases the driver

immensely; and, of course, if a corner looms

a little too quickly, huge brakes with Brembo

calipers quickly slow speed, pedal feel is solid

and totally reassuring.

It’s hard to believe that with so much

performance on offer the GS F also beholds

the Lexus concept of luxury, the entire

in-cabin area is an experience to be in. Not

only is there every conceivable convenience

item, but that area is laid out so that five

people can enjoy the driving experience.

As much as I enthused with the engine outputs,

it also delivered respectable fuel usage

readouts. My five-day average

constantly listed around 12.9-litres per

100km/h (22mpg). That sits well with Lexus’

claim of 11.3l/100km (25mpg) on a combined

cycle average.

The GS F is also a car which you could

enjoy as an occasional on-track experience.

The first time I was acquainted with the car

was on the sealed track at Ruapuna’s Mike

Pero Motorsport Park. I was a passenger

with a professional race driver at the wheel.

The GS F responded to the high-speed

workout just as if it was built for

competition; it is an all-rounder which, in

comparison to other desirable sports cars,

seems all so affordable.

NRL PROGRAMME

DESIGNED TO PROMOTE MENTAL HEALTH

Jessica Macartney and Brent Tomlinson display

the State of Mind jersey the players wear.

The Hornby Rugby League Club is one of two Christchurch league clubs that has put in place

a programme designed to foster a healthy mental state in its players.

Recognising the devastating effects that can occur if mental health issues are not addressed,

the NRL has developed its NRL State of Mind grass roots programme. Now in its second

season, it comprises a six-step recognition process targeted at club leadership level – club

administrators, coaches, managers and senior members.

Australian Jessica Macartney, community manager – NRL Health, who was in Christchurch

recently to present the programme, says the idea is to change the culture of the clubs by

educating these leaders about mental health and how to deal with difficulties young players may

have around mental health, and passing this on to them through mentoring.

“Each club has its own needs,” Jessica says, “so it’s a matter of working out what’s best, and

we do this through the six-step recognition process. It takes two seasons to get through the

six-step process.”

In 2016 there were five New Zealand clubs and 30 Australian clubs participating in the

programme. This year a further five clubs have joined the programme in New Zealand, and

in Australia, after a substantial State Government funding boost, there are 105 clubs going

through the programme, Jessica says.

Two leading NRL players, Simon Mannering and Tofofoa Sipley, have been appointed as

Ambassadors for NRL State of Mind in New Zealand.

As stated on the NRL State of Mind website, the key outcomes of the programme are: to

Come enjoy the atmosphere and

our Friendly efficient Team

reduce the stigma around mental ill health within the club and community; increase mental

health literacy across grassroots rugby league clubs; and stimulate help-seeking behaviours of

club members and community.

The outline of the programme was introduced at the Hornby Rugby League clubrooms in

May 2016, and that meeting drew a good crowd of club members, players and friends, who got

right behind the concept, club president Brent Tomlinson says.

“People knew it was needed, that something had to be done. They just didn’t know how, so

this came at just the right time.”

The club has set up a special Education Centre where the programme is presented, equipped

with sound system, computers and screens. The redecoration of the room and the installation

of equipment were carried out by club members in their free time, with the costs covered by

fundraising.

“Our teenage members can also come in here if they want some time out in a safe,

comfortable environment,” Brent says.

As part of the State of Mind programme, and to reinforce the message, all the teams wear

the special State of Mind jersey when they are playing.

Hornby Rugby League Club has produced Kiwis and other representative players and

coaches over the years. Later this year, members and local residents will have the opportunity

to see some of the world’s current top rugby league players in action, when they come here to

compete in the Rugby League World Cup taking place between October and December.

The award-winning team: from left, Paula Waldeck,

Shaunice Ross, Kirsty Stewart, Amanda Ellis, Christine Gilliver.

TIME TO PLAN WINTER HOLIDAYS

WITH AWARD-WINNING TEAM

See our full page advert on the back page and start planning your next holiday.

There have been more celebrations in the House of Travel

Hornby office recently as the team have recently been named

‘Best performing Small Outlet’ in New Zealand for House of

Travel for the second year in a row.

“We are absolutely delighted with the win,” says owner/

operator Paula Waldeck.

“We are only two and a half years old, so to have this title

under our belt twice is such a credit to our fabulous team,” she

says.

As the temperatures in Christchurch cool down, that’s when

people start thinking seriously about winter breaks in warmer

climes, Paula says. And the hot destinations this

season, are the South Pacific islands – especially Fiji and

Rarotonga.

“These destinations are popular because they are close, safe

and easy to travel to. And with the direct flights now on offer

to both destinations from Christchurch, not going via Auckland

or Sydney, it’s much easier not having to negotiate another

airport – plus it means more time on the beach.”

Cheap travel to Europe is the other big news of the

moment, Paula says.

“These deals are the most competitive I’ve ever seen.

Destinations like Greece and Spain, for example, are great

places to be during the New Zealand winter and we look

forward to organising trips to exciting places like these for our

clients.”

The consultants at House of Travel Hornby are all

passionate about travel themselves, as well. Christine Gilliver

has just returned from a 10-day, five-star trip to Japan, which

she says was “amazing”, especially visiting the mountains.

Kirsty Stewart is heading off to India this month, Shaunice

Ross has just come back from Fiji and will be travelling to The

Philippines in May.

All these diverse travel experiences enable the consultants

to advise their clients on what to expect and how to make the

most of the various destinations they visit.

This month House of Travel Hornby will be welcoming a new

member to the team – senior consultant Amanda Ellis. Amanda

has a wealth of experience in the travel industry, and is another

keen traveller. Her next trip will be to the Great Barrier Reef.

House of Travel Hornby is located at 40 Carmen Road, with

easy parking right outside the door, so call in soon and start

planning your winter holiday with one of their friendly and

knowledgeable consultants.

Gourmet delights on Emerald Princess

• By Mike Yardley

LOSING WEIGHT while

on-board an ocean cruise is a

forlorn goal.

Virtuously though, I circumnavigated

the promenade deck

of the Emerald Princess so many

times, I felt as if I’d walked my

way to Tasmania. All the more

reason to succumb to the great

slate of culinary salivation bursting

forth.

The old-faithfuls can be found

throughout the ship, from the

billowing buffet ballast at Horizon

Court, to the more formal a

la carte dining rooms of Boticelli,

Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Cheap and cheerful snacks

abound, whether it’s a slice or

three of poolside pizza from

Prego Pizzeria, hamburgers and

hot dogs at Trident Grill or sweet

servings on a whim from Scoops

ice cream bar.

Generously studded with 13

dining venues, it’s the specialty

MOUTH-WATERING: Two gourmet plates at The Salty Dog.

dining experiences that lure the

gastronomes for a sense of culinary

discovery, flavourful fun and

design finesse.

The headliner is Share by Curtis

Stone. But my first stop was The

Salty Dog, a playful gastropub

cheerily garlanded in Union Jack

bunting. It’s the share-plates experience

that you should plump for,

whereby for an $18 cover charge,

you can select two gourmet plates

from the cravable menu, spanning

melt-in-your-mouth lobster

mac and cheese to wild caught

calamari frites.

Another unmissable gastronomic

encounter can be found at

the premium seafood, steak and

chop house, Crown Grill.

I started with chilean sea

bass and brioche-breaded king

prawns, before hitting the meat.

The globally-sourced range of

premium chops elicited a patriotic

pick on my part, opting for the

New Zealand double lamb chops

in rosemary essence with garden

fresh vegetables. Divine.

The piece de resistance is the

stirring six-course degustation

fine dining affair at Share. With

supreme ocean views over the

ship’s wake, the fresh, instantly

agreeable and homely design

elements mark a huge departure

from the standard cruise ship

aesthetic.

Decorative curios, books and

photos from Curtis’ personal

collection, add to its informal

ambience.

A star feature is the sweeping

communal table tailor-made for

sharing food, while exquisite

hand-blown glass pendants,

etched with words like family,

togetherness and travel, dangle

above the table.

The award-winning Melbourne-born

chef who has

made quite a splash in Hollywood,

has crafted a small plates

menu specifically for Australasian

tastes.

There are scallops, lightly

seared with a sesame and chickpea

puree, lamb loin matched

with harissa scented couscous

and steelhead trout lying in a

white wine beurre blanc.

The six-course experience

traverses starters, salads, pasta,

seafood, meat with a final flourish

reserved for dessert.

A selection of Curtis Stone

dishes are now served in the main

dining rooms across the entire

fleet of 18 Princess ships.

AWARD-WINNER: Curtis

Stone’s small plates menu

caters for Australasian tastes.

A more youthful appearance

When it comes to dentures, Christchurch

people have access to world-leading

techniques and oral aesthetics right on their

doorstep.

At his Montreal St studio Lovebite,

internationally-renowned dental technician

Richard Greenlees creates beautiful

bespoke dentures with small nuances in

the fabrication, colour and shape and even

slight imperfections to create a uniquely

individual smile.

Not only do Lovebite teeth look real, the

whole structure and shape of the patient’s

face is transformed with Richard’s top-ofthe-line

dentures – something he calls his

signature ‘denture lift’. “With appropriate

facial support, the facial tissues are brought

back into the correct position, the lips are

reformed, and beauty is restored,” he says.

It is the interior architecture of a Lovebite

denture that helps to create a more youthful

appearance by

recovering the

face and skeletal

shape that can be

lost after years of

wearing dentures.

As the smile

is transformed,

so is the patient’s

confidence, and the

way they feel about

themselves.

There

is no

need for

These Lovebite dentures have been handcrafted by internationally-renowned

dental technician Richard Greenlees to closely resemble natural teeth, resulting

in a beautiful smile, tailored to the patient’s character and individuality.

dentures to look false. Richard takes a great

deal of satisfaction in making bespoke

dentures that look 100 percent real and

natural, personally guiding his patients

through the transformation process, to craft

a smile that reflects their individuality and

personality, and recreates their natural predenture

smile.

Richard’s vast experience includes 15 years

running his own clinic in the prestigious

Harley St, London, where he treated people

from all walks of life, from barrow boys to

the rich and famous, politicians, actors and

musicians.

His techniques are recognised as worldleading

amongst his international peers

and he is regularly asked to lecture and run

courses worldwide.

Miles Cone (DMD, MS, FACP, CDT),

a prosthodontist from Oregon, US, said

in November 2015: “Richard Greenlees’

craftsmanship is as stunning as it is

unique. There is liberation in the calculated

imperfection, indeed an asperity that reflects

a purely human element”.

In addition to dentures, Richard also

carries out crown and bridge, veneer and

implant work, in conjunction with likeminded

dental surgeons who complement

his creative and aesthetic work.

“Teeth are as different as fingerprints and

vary greatly depending on a person’s age,

sex and race. Dentures from Lovebite reflect

this, and are as unique and individual as the

people they are made for,” says Richard.

There is nothing more satisfying for

Richard, than to see his patients leave the

Lovebite studio with their self-confidence

and identity restored, as well as their smile.

A natural approach to health

WARNING: A hot paint-stripping

gun and dry wood is a dangerous

combination.

Take care when

stripping paint

• By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk

Management Officer

ABOUT ONCE a year we get called to a

house that has been set on fire with a paint

stripping heat gun.

Of course, houses that have paint of

so many coats and thickness that they

require a heat gun, are normally made of

timber, generally many years old and dry

as a bone.

We had one of these fires on Tuesday in

Jutland St, North New Brighton.

Thankfully, this time the occupants of

the house noticed the wisps of smoke and

called the Fire Service nice and early. So

that a garden hose and a thermal imaging

camera check for hot spots were all that

was needed.

Sometimes the result is much worse. It

pays to check for any gaps between weatherboards

before starting.

Birds or rodent nests in wall cavities are

often responsible for fire development.

Don’t burn your house down trying to

improve it.

Smoke was also seen seeping out of a

house by neighbours in Skipton St, Mairehau,

What do you consider to be the main

moderator of your health? Do you consider

what you eat to be the number one

influence on the way your body operates,

or is it the amount and type of exercise?

Maybe you feel that the way you handle

or deal with the stress of modern life to

be the major determinant in how well and

healthy you are. It could be that you feel

there is a more spiritual component at

play or that your genes or family history

determines your health. What about

health literacy? Is there a correlation

between your knowledge of your own

body’s workings and how healthy you

are? Health literacy is about having the

ability to obtain, understand and process

information and services related to health

and to make appropriate health decisions

based on this knowledge. All of these

things play an important role in health and

obviously some will have more of a role

than others depending on the individual.

How you understand and choose to

deal with your health is a complex issue

Pain management

Living with pain can be the hardest part

of living with arthritis. For some forms of

arthritis, the cause of the pain is often not

well understood.

There are over 620,000 New Zealanders

living with a diagnosis of arthritis. That’s

one in six, but one in two is over 75 years

of age.

Arthritis-related pain causes significant

difficulties for many people. They find

that it impacts on their ability to conduct

everyday activities and to live life as fully

as possible. Sleeping at night becomes a

challenge and for many they hide their pain

from family and friends.

It’s important that those with arthritis

pain seek advice from their GP, pharmacist

or an Arthritis Educator.

SOUTHERN VIEW

Pain management programmes, (such as

those held by Arthritis New Zealand), tend

to work well for older people. There is a

focus on what you can do rather than what

you cannot do. Pain may limit some of the

things that you can do, but it doesn’t have

to control your life. You can learn ways to

manage your pain. You may have to try

different self-management techniques until

you find what works best for you.

The key points of pain management will

be explored at the Workshops on 19th and

20th April.

Golden Health Care

Golden Healthcare Group’s position at

the forefront of Canterbury’s residential

care services is cemented by a state-ofthe-art

facility being developed at Lady

Wigram Retirement Village.

The concept is to provide hotel-style

accommodation for those residents

who enjoy being part of a vibrant, social

community.

The group has already completed 50

villas with an additional 17 to be completed

by early 2017. Until the full project is

finalised, one of the villas built during

the first stage of construction has been

converted to accommodate social events

such as bowls, happy hours, high teas and

television viewing of sports fixtures.

Once the project is complete, it will

comprise 101 villas, 73 apartments, and

100 care beds. The proposed facilities will

include a rest home, hospital, and dementia

facilities, and permanent amenities such

as a community centre, Bowling Green,

swimming and spa pools, a gym, a theatre,

a library, and a hairdressing salon.

The villas will be offered in a

combination of two and three bedrooms

whereas apartment residents will have a

choice between one and two bedrooms.

The Lady Wigram Retirement Village is

a short stroll from The Landing, the central

retail hub of the Wigram Skies subdivision,

and only a short drive to Hornby Mall, the

Hornby Working Men’s Club and the city.

Lady Wigram Retirement Village is

one of eight facilities operated by Golden

Healthcare Group that offer a variety of

residential care services.

The large Christchurch-based group is

a privately owned provider that strives to

support every aspect of aged care.

Rest home care is provided in the Golden

Age Rest Home and Brookhaven Rest

Home, both of which also encompass

retirement villages. Brookhaven also

has a dementia care unit along with the

dedicated Camellia Court, Albarosa, and

Somerfield rest homes. Furthermore,

the Hoon Hay Rest Home is a dedicated

dementia wing, but the Hoon Hay House

on the same site specialises in mental

health.

Within the facilities, there are plenty

of opportunities to create unique

environments for differing requirements

for residents. Nursing care is provided

by registered nurses, regular scheduled

medical appointments and on-call doctors

ensure residents’ health is well monitored.

An activities co-ordinator ensures residents

will never be bored and they participate in

programmed activities, games, sing-alongs

with performances by visiting entertainers,

library book exchange and exercise

programmes. The group has four vans to

utilise for residents outings.

Each facility has its own kitchen and

offers nutritious home-style meals and

baking, and special diets are catered for.

Golden Healthcare employs 260 at its

facilities which care for about 350 residents.

All staff are highly trained, experienced,

and qualified in their roles.

Each facility offers regular resident and

family meetings to ensure feedback is

encouraged, and dementia facilities also

offer educational evening for families to

understand the dementia process. Respite

care is also provided at all facilities.

Time Honoured Remedy

According to a country Doctor “D.C.

Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider

vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an

important part of a long healthy life. Dr.

Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly

consumed cider vinegar and honey had

excellent health with many putting in a

vigorous day’s work on the farm even when

well into their eighties.

Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar

and honey on arthritis can be remarkable

with many patients reporting almost total

relief after taking a course of the cider

vinegar and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider vinegar

counteracted calcium deposits and helped

the body control calcium use.

As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found

regular administration of cider vinegar and

honey at the onset of complaints such as the

common cold, sinusitis, asthmatic

attacks, hay fever, and childhood

diseases such as chicken pox and

measles, was accompanied by an

improvement in the condition with

symptoms either disappearing,

or the conditions were extremely

mild and soon over.

Apple cider vinegar contains

all the goodness of the apple in a

form that is readily accepted by

the body. Scientists have found

over 90 different substances in

ACV, among them 20 important

trace elements, minerals, essential

enzymes, a number of different

acids including malic acid, amino

acids and roughage in the form

of potash and pectin. A scientific

121 Skyhawk Road

study at the Shizuka University in Japan

has proven ACV to have potent antioxidant

benefits (It can destroy free radicals,

which are a major factor in ageing.) and

also the ACV can break down cholesterol

formations in the blood vessels.

ACV and H is a powerful tonic that

also promotes digestion, assimilation of

nutrients and elimination of waste, and

helps neutralize any toxic substances that

enter the body.

It is important to note not all cider

vinegar is made in the traditional way and

results are likely to prove disappointing

with these other vinegars.

SOUTHERN VIEW

Mazda MX-5 offers

thrilling drive

• By Ross Kiddie

WHEN MAZDA first

produced its MX-5

convertible, the concept

was loosely based around

the high performance

Lotus Elan of the 60s.

There’s no denying the

success Mazda has had

with the MX-5, every

generation has been true

to the original, and I don’t

know anyone who isn’t

smitten with the affordable

sports car.

That being the case, I was

a little surprised to find

that the latest generation

model was designed in

collaboration with the

Fiat/Chrysler group. We

are unlikely to see the Fiat

equivalent here in New

Zealand, it’s rumoured

to be a left-hand-drive

model only; but we will

see Abarth versions here

in right-hand-drive, and

it will arrive with a 1.4-

litre turbocharged engine.

Incidentally, Abarth is the

performance arm of Fiat

in Italy.

I’m not here to praise

the Abarth, I doubt that

I’ll ever get a drive of

that vehicle, but what I

do know is that Mazda is

determined not to lose grip

on the popularity of MX-5,

nor its market share, and

have launched it here in

four variations to cater for

all driving tastes. In simple

terms, there is a 1.5-litre

manual model, a 2-litre

manual or automatic, and a

2-litre convertible hardtop.

I’ve driven all but the

hardtop, and have come

to appreciate what Mazda

have done with the MX-5,

it is still the fun, beautifully

balanced sports car

which has a chassis and

suspension that can only be

described as delightful.

This evaluation focuses

on the 2-litre manual,

and it sits in the market

at $46,995. $40,995 will

get you into the 1.5-

litre manual, automatic

transmission on the 2-litre

adds $1500.

Effectively, the engine is

the same, but for bore and

stroke differences which

determine cubic capacity.

The 2-litre model pumps

out 118kW and 200Nm

against 96kW and 150Nm,

and if you add in its weight

of just over 1000kg the

power-to-weight balance

is definitely biased towards

performance.

When you fire up the

Mazda MX-5 you know

you are in for a thrilling

ride; the engine is raspy

MAZDA MX-5: Designed with the Fiat/Chrysler group.

and a little raw, not so

that it’s overbearing, but

it does have sound which

lets you know that there is

something just a little bit

different about the car. It

has always been that way,

it’s just part of the ethos

that harks back to my

introduction, the Lotus

Elan was also vibrant from

under the bonnet.

• Price – Mazda MX-5

Ltd, $46,995

• Dimensions – Length,

3915mm; width,

1735mm; height,

1230mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

rear-wheeldrive,1998cc,

118kW,

200Nm, six-speed

manual.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.6sec

• Fuel usage –

6.9l/100km

Where Mazda has

excelled with the MX-5 is

in its driving dynamics,

you feel so very much a

part of the car, everything

from the short-shifting

gear lever through to the

feel from the suspension

and the way you as a driver

are connected to the rearwheel-drive

feel, the MX-5

involves the driver and

drags him/her tightly to the

elements which make it the

sports machine it is.

In terms of performance,

the MX-5 in 2-litre form

will haul to 100km/h from

a standstill in 6.6sec, and

will make an overtaking

manoeuvre in 4.9sec (80-

120km/h). And at the

same time it will also sip

fuel frugally, Mazda claim

a 6.9l/100km (41mpg)

combined cycle average.

The twin-camshaft, fourcylinder

unit is one from

the new range of SkyActive

engines which have found

their way into most of

Mazda’s current product, it

has character and likes to

be heard; at highway speed

it settles down, but if you

use the power on tap it

is there to entertain

audibly.

The MX-5 is all about

character, and it has a

chassis that delivers one

of the finest handling

sensations you are ever

likely to experience. The

steering is pin-sharp, and

by sitting almost over

the rear axles you get a

lot of feel as to what the

suspension is doing in

relation to the road surface.

Short-wheelbase, rearwheel-drive

cars can be

twitchy at the rear under

power, and the MX-5 is no

exception, but grip through

the 205/45 x 17in sport

specification Bridgestone

Potenza rubber is high and

you really have to work

hard to lose traction. Of

course, that is immediately

arrested through the

traction control electronics,

but the point is the MX-5

can be playful and, as a

buyer, you wouldn’t want

anything less.

I took the test car inland

from Windwhistle almost

all of the way to Lake

Coleridge Village, my

favourite high country

road, and thoroughly

enjoyed the way the MX-5

attacked the corners yet

drives in a fashion which

allows the driver to use its

qualities to full potential.

The driving environment

is one of massive appeal,

everything about the MX-5

is beautifully engineered,

from the cockpit to

lowering the roof down

with one hand in one

easy movement, there is

nothing to criticise, and

the newcomer is true to

the concept which has

made it so successful and

appealing.

Of course, it is a selfish

car, any buyer will only be

able to have one passenger

at a time as it has two seats

only, and that in itself

suggests that everything

about the MX-5 is a little

different.

Warming winter with

With Solar PV (Electrical Power Generation)

there are many pit falls and false quick sales

are being made due to misleading television

advertising and badly sold solutions. We at

Tucker Electrical offer true solutions with

full visibility and quality products providing

instant assessment of your actual generation

suitability by a full report.

Did you know you can, if installed correctly,

check each panel is working correctly? Did

you know you can assess/see the total amount

of generation of your system and the instant

position of generation? Many package deals do

not offer this and then you are only guessing

when trying to maximise the use and benefit

of your investment. On a financial return basis

we can show you how a 12% return on your

investment is quite simple.

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.

Our Personal

Shoper Guarante

Your personal shopper picks and packs your groceries as if they

were doing their own shopping - They look for the brightest fruit, the

leanest meat and the most mouth-watering pastries. So rest assured,

everything is handpicked and only the best will do.

We also understand that everyone is different, that’s why you can

leave a note next to any item you order online to ensure your

personal shopper knows exactly what to look for. We’re here to save

you time without compromising on your individual needs, that’s why,

we promise you’ll be satisfied with our service.

What our customers ay;

“I can order my groceries whilst

on my conference calls at work,

then whip into Barrington on

the way home to quickly pick

them up. It’s great” - Michele

“We are loving this

new service and find it

very easy to use.”

- Hiary

“I put through the order whilst the kids

are playing, then my husband collects

them on the way home from work - It’s

ideal for our busy home.” - Kay

“So far this process

has been straight

forward and very user

friendly.” - Sheridan
