Pet Pippi

part of

parade fun

• By Bridget Rutherford

PIPPI IS part of the family.

So when the Bromley sisters headed

to the America’s Cup victory parade

last week, they weren’t going to leave

her behind.

Jade Bromley tucked Pippi into her

puffer jacket to keep her warm, and

headed to the central city from their

Huntsbury home with sisters Ashley

and Holly.

They, along with about 6000 people

braved the freezing rain, wind and

sleet on Wednesday to celebrate Emirates

Team New Zealand’s America’s

Cup triumph in Bermuda.

The 18-year-old said in spite of the

cold, Pippi didn’t seem to mind being

there.

She said their parents were huge

sailing fans, and had encouraged them

to head along to catch a glimpse of the

team and the Auld Mug.

Lack of

aquatic

facility a

barrier for

wider

Linwood

• By Bridget Rutherford

HAVING NO local swimming

pool is the biggest barrier for

those living in the wider Linwood

area, a new survey has found.

The Linwood Development

Aspirations: Our Social and

Recreational Hopes survey interviewed

499 people living and

working within a 1.5km radius of

the centre of Linwood Park.

The findings, released last week,

showed overwhelming support for

a pool to be built in the area.

The city council has allocated

about $20 million to build a pool

over the next three years. But it

has not yet been determined how

big it would be, or where.

The survey, carried out last year,

asked what people currently did

for fun, what activities they would

like to be doing, the barriers stopping

that, and what would make it

possible.

In total, 103 people said they

would like to take swimming

lessons.

But about half of those said they

could not because there was no

aquatic facility in the area.

News..................................... 3-11

IF YOU are a city councillor or

community board member in the

Linwood area, read page 1.

Because the good people of

Linwood are beating the drums

very loudly for a swimming pool.

We reveal today having no local

swimming pool is the biggest

barrier for those living in the

wider Linwood area. The Linwood

Development Aspirations: Our

Social and Recreational Hopes

survey interviewed 499 people

living and working within a

1.5km radius of the centre of

Linwood Park.

About $20 million has been

allocated to a pool over the next

three years. Whether that happens

remains to be seen.

Linwood desperately needs

community facilities and a pool

is a perfect start. The local body

elections are still a way off, but the

pool issue will be a hot election

topic when they come around.

Expo shows off community

LIVING IN Linwood, Woolston,

Bromley and Phillipstown is

something to celebrate.

That’s why the city council

will host It’s Great to Live Here

2017 expo on Friday from 11am

to 3pm at Eastgate Shopping

Centre.

The theme this year will be:

Community communication

and connections.

When asked about what they

love about living in greater Linwood,

residents often talk about

the people, the convenience and

the sense of community.

The annual expo, which has

been running for more than 10

years, will celebrate what’s great

about living, working, playing

and learning in the area.

The expo is a partnership

between local community

groups and organisations, some

social and public service groups,

Eastgate Shopping Centre, local

businesses and the city council.

Residents, community groups

and businesses come together to

celebrate what they value about

the area, whether it be diversity,

resilience, vibrancy or strong

community spirit.

It also allows people to find

out what is happening in greater

Linwood and what various

community groups and social

This year, 26 groups will

participate in the expo,

including the Linwood

Resource Centre, Phillipstown

Community Hub and

Community Centre, Bromley

Community Centre, Woolston

Development Project and the

Methodist Mission, among

others

Most of the local groups that

will be present are a part of the

Greater Linwood Forum which

meets once a month.

Some of the great new

initiatives and activities

happening in the area

include the recently launched

community pizza oven at the

Phillipstown Community Hub

and a new community internet

cafe being launched at the

Bromley Community Centre

which will offer free computer

tuition.

beach mat

• By Caitlin Miles

Fire rages, homes at risk

GETTING A wheelchair

across the soft sand at the

beach is about to get easier

thanks to a special mat.

Come the summer season

the North New Brighton Residents’

Association and North

Beach Surf Club will roll out

a special wheelchair mat as a

trial.

It’s designed to make it easier

for those in wheelchairs and

with other mobility disabilities

to get from the concrete across

the soft sand and onto the hard

sand near the water.

Association chairman Josiah

Thompson said it was “very

exciting” to be able to provide

the mat so the less able would

not miss out on enjoying the

beach.

The mat will be stored at the

surf club, every morning it will

be rolled out and brought back

in at the end of the day by the

surf club.

Mr Thompson said he hopes

following the trial they will be

able to keep it permanently but

will need to wait and see. ​

Richard Jolly

Former oil trader finds reward

Teacher Richard Jolly is

head of social science at

Linwood College but in

his former life, he was a

London-based oil trader

who travelled the world.

Sarla Donovan talks to

him about what a trader

does and why he moved

to Christchurch

Oil trader to social studies

teacher – why the change?

To do something worthwhile

and bring up a family in

Christchurch. I taught in Camp

America for a year before oil

trading and loved it. I wanted to

go back to it; teaching students is

very rewarding – and there’s not

many oil trading jobs here.

It sounds exotic.

It is exotic. I travelled to many

countries – the United States

lots of times, Egypt and Russia

and the Baltic States. I was

based in London, but did a lot

of work in Hamburg and Zug

in Switzerland. It’s a great life,

but if you have small children

you never see them. I spent

hours and hours oil trading

and realised one day, sitting

at my desk that I was paying a

nanny to take my daughter to

the beach. That’s really when

I decided to make the change.

That was 14 years ago. We

moved from Switzerland to New

Zealand and I trained at the

New Zealand Graduate School

of Education. My wife Beth is

from Methven but it wasn’t all

her choice, she certainly wasn’t

putting the pressure on to come

back.

What do oil traders need to

be good at, what’s involved?

You need to be good with

people, good with numbers

and good at making decisions.

I’d make contacts in different

countries, buy large quantities

of oil, organise shipping, ship

it halfway across the world,

hedge the price using the futures

market, talk to refineries to

process it. So, you have to work

with a lot of different people.

Are there any similarities

between the two jobs?

Not a lot – the lunches are

quite different! You’re still

working with people

though, that’s the same.

So were you

here during the

earthquakes?

Yes . . . but I wish I wasn’t.

How did they affect

you?

Not good.

We lost our

house in the

February 2011

earthquake

and like many,

it took six years

to get it replaced.

Meanwhile, we

moved 13 times,

including one

year back in

the UK.

I was offered a job back in oil

trading when we went back but

chose to stay in teaching and

worked in a very posh English

public school, Dauntsey’s.

So Linwood’s not the only

school you’ve taught at?

No, prior to the earthquake

I worked at Catholic

Cathedral College, which I

very much enjoyed, and

only left because my

house was destroyed.

I commuted in

from Methven

for a few

months but

then got

a job at

Mt Hutt

College followed by a spell back

at Dauntsey’s.

Did you grow up in the

countryside back in the UK?

I grew up in a town called

Beaconsfield, just outside of

London, and it was great but the

town has now been swallowed

by London commuters and is

not really very nice now.

Are your family still back in

the UK?

Yes, people are still around.

My parents have lived in the

same place for 52 years and I

try to get back every year or

18 months. I also have four

brothers over in that part of the

world.

PEOPLE: Teaching and oil trading are both peoplefocused

jobs, says Richard Jolly.

No pool a barrier for Linwood

•From page 1

Thirty-three others said there were not

enough community facilities and spaces

for social and recreational activities.

City councillor Yani Johanson said the

survey results were a good reminder for

why the area needed a pool.

“There’s been a really strong desire and

need for a pool and recreation centre for

a long time.”

Of the 81 children interviewed, 28 said

they wanted a swimming pool.

Eighty-nine 13 to 25-year-olds were

interviewed.

Nineteen said they wanted to be able to

go swimming, but many said there were

no facilities close by, and it was too far

to travel to one. Twenty-seven said they

wanted a pool.

Of the 210 26 to 64-year-olds interviewed,

45 wanted to be able to go swimming

for leisure, but 28 said there were

no facilities nearby.

Seventy-two wanted a pool.

One-hundred-and-nineteen people

over the age of 65 took part in the survey,

with 18 saying swimming or aqua exercise

was something they wanted to be

able to do.

However, 12 said having no local pool

stopped them from doing that, and 30

wanted some sort of aquatic facility.

Did you attend a co-ed school like

Linwood?

No, I went to a boys grammar school; we

were academics and rugby. The teachers

wore gowns and it was very formal. The

school was good for me, it got me into

Cambridge University where I studied

engineering. It was amazing – I was there

for three years – we had our bicycles, played

sport, rugby and hockey. And from there I

won a scholarship to do my masters in the

US, then became an oil trader.

Your three kids must keep you pretty

busy these days. Do you find time for

sports or hobbies?

I sometimes think I run a taxi service;

football, ballet, gymnastics. Weekends

involve cheering my kids on in their

sports and trying to get out myself for a

hit of tennis or a round of golf. I think it’s

important that we find time to balance our

lives, it makes you a better parent and a

better teacher.

Where are you off to in the school

holidays?

We’re heading over to Australia for

a family holiday. Very much looking

forward to it.

Halswell shelter recaptures past

THE STORY of a women’s

refuge has been captured in a

Halswell shelter.

Canterbury’s heritage has

been reflected in a remembrance

structure that recalls

and tells the story of Mount

Magdala, an 1880s women’s

refuge and its historical farm

buildings.

Titled A Place to Shelter, the

new structure in McMahon

Reserve outlines the history

of the area and incorporates

repurposed heritage material

from the original Mount Magdala

farm.

The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

has been involved in the design

options.

“We are delighted a new

remembrance structure now

features in McMahon Reserve,

incorporating heritage material

from the original Mount

Magdala farm. It brings history

to life in the Aidanfield area,”

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora said.

The shelter stands on the

site of the farm that once provided

all the food for Mount

Magdala, and, later, St Joseph’s

Orphanage.

It presents a new chapter in

the story of the many shelters

sited on the land.

By using material from the

original farm, it acknowledges

the rural and social history of

the area now known as Aidanfield.

Indeed, Aidanfield was

named after one of Mount

Magdala’s founding sisters,

Mother Aidan Phelan.

Mount Magdala was a largely

self-sufficient home run by the

Sisters of the Good Shepherd.

The farm buildings were

arranged in a U-shape with

a central courtyard, replicating

the traditional English

farmstead seldom seen in New

Zealand.

HISTORY:

The new

information

shelter in

Halswell

tells the

story of a

pioneering

women’s

refuge. ​

Mount Magdala provided

food and shelter for hundreds

of women, and later children,

until 1966.

The official opening of A

Place to Shelter will be held on

Sunday at 11.45am at McMahon

Reserve on the corner of

McMahon Drive and Aidanfield

Drive.

TOP EFFORTS: Celyn Edwards (left) and his brother, Ieuan Edwards (right) have had

a solid showing at the world para swimming series event held in Berlin from July 6-9.

Hillmorton student holds new national records

• By Andrew King

A NUMBER of national

swimming records now belong

to Hillmorton High’s Celyn

Edwards after a solid showing at

the world para swimming series

in Berlin.

Celyn, and his brother Ieuan,

travelled with the five-strong

New Zealand team which broke

one Oceania and 10 national

records, had a number three in

the world-ranked performance,

three swimmers achieving

Commonwealth Games

qualifying times and 20 personal

bests.

Celyn, 16, now has the

record times for 50 and 100m

butterfly, 50 and 100m freestyle,

50 and 100m breaststroke

and 50m backstroke in the S8

classification category.

He said he was pleased with

his performance, but was

mentally and physically

tired.

“I really enjoyed the experience

of being able to see all the

other swimmers from all over

SPORTS

the world. I’m very happy with

my performance and know what

to work on in the future, my

coach has given me some things

to change,” he said.

Fourteen-year-old Ieuan didn’t

manage to break any records but

broke six of his own personal

bests in the 50, 100 and 200m

breaststroke, 50 and 100m backstroke,

50 and 100m freestyle

events.

In the 200m breaststroke, he

beat his previous best by 11sec.

“It was a great to be able to

swim at an international meet. I

felt that in all of my races I gave

my all. It was hard to walk up

the stairs after races back to my

coaches as my legs were so tired,”

he said.

The next event on the horizon

for the Edwards brothers are the

South Island championships in

Blenheim in August followed by

the short course championships

held in Auckland in October.

Celyn’s big goal is to qualify

for the Commonwealth Games,

while both want to represent

their country at the Paralympics.

“As parents, we are really

proud of the way the lads have

applied themselves and worked

very hard over the years to reach

their goals. It was terrific to see

them enjoy the competition

and have the success they have

strived for,” mother Nicky Edwards

said.

Both swimmers represent the

Selwyn Swim Club.​

New treatment for fungal nails

Feet First, the long-established

podiatry clinic in Upper Riccarton, now

has a much more efficient and effective

means of dealing with the problem of

fungal nails, thanks to a new machine

they recently obtained from Britain,

where it was designed and trialled.

Clearanail is a procedure where the

Podiatrists use a machine to make

tiny holes in the nail without affecting

the nail bed – a completely pain-free

procedure that then allows the topical

application of antifungal

solution to directly reach the

problem area.

Fungal nails may cause

the toenail to thicken, which

consequently can make shoes

feel uncomfortable. Anyone

who believes they have a fungal

infection of the nails is invited

to make an appointment for a

consultation with Feet First so one of the

qualified Podiatrists can assess if that is

the case, and if so, will recommend the

Clearanail procedure. This involves the

initial treatment, and three follow-up

appointments at monthly intervals to

check progress.

“Fungal nail infections won’t disappear

immediately,” clinic director Charlotte

Russell says, “so people need to commit

to the process, which can take up to four

months as the nail grows.”

effective treatment, Feet First has

another unique feature – the Shoe

Room. Here, clients can browse

through a wide selection of ‘fashionable,

functional footwear’ for men and

women that not only provides support

and comfort, but also looks modern and

attractive.

The four registered and experienced

Feet First Podiatrists offer the full range

of podiatry services for all ages and all

conditions, with customised treatment

provided for every client. They also

offer a range of quality foot treatment

products, including the German brand

Gehwol.

The clinic at 37 Main South Road is

open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to

5pm, with late nights on Monday and

Thursday to 7pm by appointment. The

Shoe Room is open Monday to Friday

9am-4pm. There is on-site parking

available.

Feet First also runs several satellite

clinics. These are at the Marshland

Family Health Centre, Marshland

Road on Mondays, the Redcliffs

Clinic, Augusta Street, on Wednesday

afternoon and Friday morning, the

Waltham Medical Centre, Waltham

Road on Wednesday afternoon, and at

Darfield Pharmacy on Friday.

NEW TECHNOLOGY TO TREAT FUNGAL NAILS

The Clearanail machine and

related products.

Clinic director Charlotte Russell displays

one of the modern boot styles available

in the Shoe Room.

She says now is an ideal time to start

fungal nail treatment with Clearanail,

so nails will be looking healthy again

when the warm, sandal-wearing

weather arrives. Feet First has an

introductory offer on Clearanail until

the end of July.

Your fresh food people

CHICKEN BREAST WITH

MUSHROOM STUFFING

AND MARSALA GLAZE

Ingredients

1 Garlic clove

1 Shallot, or small onion, diced

15g Butter

50g White Button mushrooms

2 slices Bread, stale and diced

1 Tbsp Parsley, finely chopped

1 Lemon, zest

2 Chicken breasts

1 Tbsp Oil

3 Tbsp Marsala, or sherry

2 Tbsp Cream

Directions

Stuffing

In a small frying pan, fry the

garlic and shallot in the butter

until translucent. Add the mushrooms

and fry for 2-3min until

cooked. Add the breadcrumbs,

cooking until the butter has

been absorbed.

Take off the heat, add the parsley

and lemon zest and season

with salt and freshly ground

black pepper.

To cook the chicken

Heat the oven to 180 deg C.

Stuff the chicken breast by lifting

the tenderloin up (if there is no

tenderloin, ignore this). Press

half of the stuffing on to the

breast meat. Cover the stuffing

with the tenderloin. Wrap the

breast with kitchen string to secure

the stuffing in place and tie.

Repeat with second breast.

Heat a frying pan and add oil.

Add the breasts skin side down

and season with salt. When

browned on one side, turn and

season again. After 3min, place

the pan in the hot oven for a further

10-12min or until cooked.

Remove from the oven and

cover with foil to rest for 5min.

To serve, place the chicken on a

chopping board and remove the

string.

Slice in half and place on a

warmed plate. Cover with foil

while you make the sauce.

Return the pan of chicken

juices to the hob. Add the

marsala or sherry and let it

reduce for 2-3min (this is called

de-glazing). Add the cream and

taste for seasoning. Pour the

sauce over the chicken. You may

need to pour over through a

sieve to remove any burnt pan

leftovers. Season with freshly

ground black pepper. Serve with

potatoes and greens.

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 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.

Minerals are the building blocks of

good health. Some minerals are only

larger amounts and on a regular basis to

prevent deficiency and maintain optimum

obtain sufficient magnesium from our

diet and may notice some of the common

signs of deficiency. Some of the more

common symptoms that may be caused by

insufficient magnesium are: leg and muscle

blurred vision, restlessness, poor sleep,

poor circulation, irregular heartbeat,

shortness of breath, swallowing problems,

dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation,

irritability, seizures, poor concentration

and many more.

Although many young people now show

signs of magnesium deficiency symptoms

generally worsen as we age due to our

a magnesium supplement of sufficient

Be health smart

this winter

HaNDS arE the main pathways of germ

transmission. Hand hygiene is therefore

the most important measure to avoid the

transmission of harmful germs.

Wash your hands, before & after food

preparation and eating, if you borrow

someone elses equipment and of course

after blowing your nose. For convenience

it is a good idea to have hand sanitiser on

hand to use in between washing.

Sneezing & coughing into the crook

of your arm or tissues rather than your

hand, reduces the spread of airborne

bugs. remove tissues to the rubbish

immediately.

Keep hydrated, two thirds of your body

is made of water, so keeping hydrated

is one of the most important things you

can do for your health. Dehydration

symptoms range from headaches to

nausea to fatigue, but the effects of

dehydration on your immune system are

not always as obvious. Staying hydrated

keeps the mucus membranes moist, which

keeps the immune system functioning

optimally. Unfortunately, lattes and wine

don’t count, but upping your intake of

water is incredibly beneficial. aim to

drink at least eight glasses of water a day.

You’ll notice the difference!

Eat in season, poor nutrition impairs

the immune response. Fresh vegetables,

fruits, nuts, grains and legumes or pulses

are full of immune-boosting properties

and antioxidants. Nature provides fresh

seasonal foods to compensate for what

our bodies are lacking at that time of

year. Kiwifruit & citrus fruits that are in

season throughout winter are packed with

Vitamin C.

Stress less, although short periods of

stress can actually be good for us longterm

chronic stress lowers our immunity,

making us more susceptible to colds and

flu. We all have our own ways of coping

and reducing stress so whether it’s taking

a bath, going to the gym, getting outdoors

in the garden or having fun with the kids,

do something to unwind. Not only are

you doing your adrenal glands a favour,

you’re also reducing your chances of being

struck down by the latest virus.

Get a good night’s sleep, sleep is

essential for your body to rest, repair and

rejuvenate. (Don’t you find you always

tend to look your best after a good night’s

sleep?) The human growth hormone

that’s released during sleep helps repair

your body at a cellular level, but it’s

also beneficial for the immune system.

Interrupted sleep (or just not enough of

it) significantly reduces the effectiveness

of your immune system, particularly the

natural killer cells, which is your body’s

first line of defence against germs.

FLAME FILES

Seal pup gets short shrift

• By Mark Thomas –

specialist fire investigator

IT WAS going to be the

mother of all storms

apparently.

It turns out it wasn’t.

At least not in the city.

But it was bitterly cold,

some snow fell and on the

hills it managed to settle.

I’m sure the weather did

have some effect, however,

with 16 motor accidents

attended by our crews in

the week.

We did have the odd other

call that could have been

attributed to the weather.

Although the incident

attended by Harewood

and Addington crews in

Hornby last Friday had its

origin in ignorance rather

than iciness.

A fire was lit in the

fireplace by a shivering

occupant.

It’s just that this was a

house damaged back in the

earthquakes and the chimney

had been removed.

The result was quite

fortunate really, with

smoke filling the ceiling

and then the house itself.

Fortunate because that

smoke was all that happened.

PLAYFUL: This seal pup was escorted from

Fitzgerald Ave by the city’s red watch fire crew.

Could easily have

resulted in the loss of the

home.

We go to any number of

false alarms at buildings

with smoke detectors.

Some are from accidental

causes, where smoke

from cooking or dust from

workmen sanding, set the

alarms off.

Last Thursday’s call to

the Riccarton Clinic was a

bit different.

A plaster cast was being

cut off a patient.

Seems the plaster dust

was enough to activate the

alarm.

Result was a full evacuation.

Finally, the retrieval of

a seal pup from Fitzgerald

Ave and its return to the

Avon was accomplished

by the city’s red watch fire

crew on Wednesday.

Hope Mum was about.

Ensuring a safe work place

LEArning firST aid is not only a

part of ensuring a safe work place, but also

an integral part of our engagement with

the wider community. We all learn the

necessary skills to ensure that in times of

emergency we are able to assist our work

colleagues, but are we able to take these

skills home, into the community or on to

the sports field?

not all work places are the same and

the injury risk for each place can be

wide and variable. The office attended by

administrators does not carry the same

risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance

from a regular ambulance service. it is

therefore essential that you pick the right

first aid course to suit all of your activities

– both professional and social.

Take, for example, an office worker who

does not have a high risk work environment

and whose concern might be to ensure

that they can deal with minor cuts and

superficial injuries, or the ability to perform

effective CPr. These skills can be achieved

on a course of eight hours duration and

would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to

a sports field either as a spectator or player

when a higher level injury occurs. The

eight hour course covering unit standards

6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does

not cover head neck and spinal injuries,

eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of

the work place, in fact one in three injuries

occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen.

new Zealand children are twice as likely

to die through injury as children who live

in Australia. They mostly die as a result

of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the

home. fatalities from leisure and sport are

not far behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the

additional unit standard 6400 and provides

a wide knowledge base for medium to high

risk environments. This course covers

many of the skills required to deal with

the most common injuries, such as falls

(which can result in head, neck and spinal

injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best

suited to your needs, ask your accredited

first aid training provider. They can explain

the course content and give you options

that will best suit your needs. Look beyond

the workplace and consider your family

and your location. Check that you have a

good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date

with replenished items, and that everyone

knows where it is located.

Get rid of dampness

in your house

Now wITH the colder and wetter weather

on its way, home owners are focusing on

ways to make their homes comfortable, warm

and healthy for their families throughout

winter. RISING dAmp is an issue that affects

many of our older properties which suffer

from poor, or no, insulation. In Canterbury

especially, post-quake, many people have

relocated to homes that suffer from rising

damp which can be associated with health

problems. Independent tests have shown

that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the

ground and enter a house every day, leading

to mildew, mould, condensation and musty

smells. moulds can produce various allergic

reactions and the frail, elderly and very young

are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising

damp and are there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,

flowable foam concrete under your timber

floored home. Specially adapted for our

New Zealand conditions and applications

it provides a layer of protection against

rising moisture. An unexpected benefit that

the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete

have noticed recently, is that many owners

of properties which had underfloor foam

concrete installed, reported that it also

provided protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

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

Balanced

Pressure

Ventilation

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.

Ready for

something

new?

We’re celebrating breaking the mould

of traditional retirement living!


Put the date

in your diary now!

Thursday 20 July

4pm-6pm

Living Well Park Lane

Apartments Launch

35 Whiteleigh Ave, Tower

Junction, Christchurch.

Come along and enjoy bubbles,

canapés and a presentation

with special guests in this

very unique retirement

community!

Welcome to the public launch and

You’re invited to this very special event

Inspired by the international Living

Building Challenge principles, we have

created a retirement development

that is regenerative both for the local

community and the local environment.

Arvida has partnered with leading

architects Jasmax to create a living

environment designed to help

residents remain engaged with the

greater community and be truly part

of things. So rather than a closed

and gated village, we’ve designed

an open one. And rather than taking

charge of everything, we’re providing

opportunities to support, grow, cook,

bake and even help run things. From

creating produce for our on-site café

and market days, to caring for the

gardens, chooks and animals, there

is opportunity here to be involved as

much or as little as you’d like.

We call it the Arvida attitude of living

well, and it’s all about providing you

with choices.

The attitude of living well


presentation of Living Well Park Lane

Our buildings are designed to enhance the way you live

It’s been our mission to create aesthetically

beautiful buildings using the fundamentals

of good architectural design and built from

technologically advanced, natural and locally

sourced materials.

• One, two or three bedroom large luxury

apartments in four floorplans

• Thermally insulated homes with superior

seismic integrity built-in for Christchurch

• Wellness centre and coaches, café, gym,

pool, crèche, chemist and doctors’ rooms

• Fresh produce daily, grown in raised

garden beds and glasshouses

• Kids taking part, learning life skills and

caring for the gardens and animals

• Hassle-free and efficient

transport, with a fleet of

electric and hybrid cars

provided for

residents’ use.

a look at what your future retirement lifestyle could look like.
