Gideon’s big moment

• By Sophie Cornish

INFLUENCES SUCH as Frank

Sinatra, The Beatles and Bruno

Mars have helped Bromley’s

Gideon Valavala to top of the

pops at Smokefreerockquest.

The year 13 Shirley Boys’ High

School student was judged best

vocal performance at the competition;

an accolade he hopes

could help springboard a career

in music.

Gideon’s Shirley BHS band

Fuzhun also came up trumps at

Rockquest, winning the Pacific

Beats category best song award

for their original track Champion

Sound.

Singer/songwriter Gideon,

17, has been passionate about

singing since he first began singing

at his church, Assemblies of

God in Bromley, as a child.

“I grew up in church and every

chance I had when they would

sing songs, I would sing along,”

he said.

The band was started when

music teacher Brad Bates

suggested the boys work

together to gain music credits

for NCEA.

“They came up with the idea

of bringing together a band and

I thought okay I’ll join and have

some fun and then people really

started to like our sound,” said

Mr Bates.

When asked about the songwriting

process, Gideon said it’s

sometimes a group effort but a

lot of the lyrics are written by

himself.

BIG FUTURE: Gideon Valavala performing at Smokefreerockquest.

Halswell

tree

decision

likely

tonight

• By Emily O’Connell

JOHN AND Gillian Gartly’s

bureaucratic nightmare is set to end

as they wait to hear if the 19 silver

birch trees on their Halswell street

will stay.

The 10-year process of seeking

approval to cut them down may be

made at a Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board meeting

tonight.

But Mr Gartly isn’t hopeful the

trees will be cut down as the recommendation

is for the community

board to decline the request to

remove them.

Mr Gartly described the whole

situation as a “typical city council

farcical, giving people the concept

they have some say, when they really

don’t, because the decision is

already made.”

Mr Gartly who has lived on

Rempstone Drive for nearly two

decades, said the trees cause two

problems for the residents – they’re

a SMIRNOFF nuisance VODKA and 1 LTRa health KAHULA risk. 700 ML He

said he thinks his wife’s allergies are

caused by them. He also said during

the summer the trees shower seeds

all around and make a mess.

DECISION TIME is almost

upon us and on Saturday week

the country will know if we

have a National or Labour-led

government.

Today on pages 4,5,6,7 we publish

who is standing in the electorates

in the Southern View area.

This election is the most unpredictable

in years. Will National

hold on for another term; will

Labour produce a whirlwind finish

and take power when four weeks

ago the party was falling apart,

and which parties will be the glue

that allows National or Labour to

reign?

That’s one big boy on page 1

today with a big voice to boot.

Gideon Valvala, who lives in

Bromley, won at the Smokefreerockquest,

and his Shirley Boys’

High School band also did very

well in the Pacifica Beats section.

Midge plan will take time to work

• By Sophie Cornish

A PLAN has been created to

help solve the midge problem

affecting Aranui and Bromley

residents living near the

wastewater treatment plant.

The plan was presented at a

meeting between residents, city

councillors and

Coastal-Burwood

Community

Board members.

City council

engineer

Adam Twose

proposed two

David East

solutions which

he believes will be

effective in reducing the number

of midges.

The first part of the plan, set

to begin in October, involves

methoprene spraying, which will

prevent the larvae from developing

into adults and breeding.

Methoprene is commonly

found in flea treatments for

animals. It does not impact significantly

on bird or water life.

This solution has been used in

the past. However, further scientific

data is needed to accurately

determine how much is required

to reduce the large numbers.

Another part of the plan,

which is more long-term, will be

the planting of native trees near

SWARM: The city council has proposed a plan to deal with

the common sight of midges in Aranui and Bromley.

the edges of the oxidation ponds.

The plants will attract midges

and be treated with contact

pesticide.

Other options previously

discussed were UV protection to

sterilise the water and draining

the ponds. They were deemed

too expensive by the city council

and are no longer viable.

Installing UV protection was

going to come with a price tag

of $225 million with an annual

upkeep cost of roughly $1.5

million. Mr Twose said the city

council could simply not afford

to do this.

Residents are still unhappy

with the slow action and are

facing another summer of

midge-related issues.

Janet Profit, of Aranui, was

disappointed by the time it has

taken to find a solution.

“Personally, I think it’s been a

waste of time, I’ve been fighting

this for 10 years,” she said.

Aranui resident Heather

Porter said the spraying needs to

start immediately.

“They said there wasn’t going

to be spraying until the first

couple of weeks of October,

which is far too late, because

they are already out there.

Another couple of weeks and

they will be swarming,” she said.

Councillor David East is aware

of the strain the lengthy process

is having on residents.

“Again, it’s not offering a huge

amount of relief to people right

here and now,” he said.

Making summer as pleasant as

possible for residents is what Cr

East hopes to achieve.

“I think my objective this year

is to see if we can substantially

reduce the problem from

previous years,” he said.

Establishing a monitoring

programme will be key to

figuring out the extent of the

infestation.

“If we can get on top of a

well organised spray regime,

then maybe we will curb the

worst of the problem and move

towards a solution that’s going

to effectively deal with the issue

when it arises, before it gets to

epidemic proportions,” Cr East

said.

Both residents spoken to by

Pegasus Post feel the number of

midges in summer has already

reached epidemic proportions.

Gideon’s big

The winning song champion

day, right before the heats for the

whether it

be becoming

progressing

as a band

Inspiration for his songs is

gained from a variety of artists

and music he listens to.

“I listen to all sorts of artists,

it doesn’t faze me what I listen

to, it gives me a lot of ideas for

what I can use for our band. It

could be anything from old

school music like James Brown,

Queen, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra

or new school people like Bruno

Mars and hip-hop artists like

Kendrick Lamar and J.Cole,” he

said.

“Now is the moment we’ve been

opportunity to build a better, fairer

future for New Zealand. To fix our

GENERAL ELECTION 2017 – MEET THE CANDIDATES

Christchurch Central electorate

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

EMERGENCY EYE

SURGERY FOR JESS

Meet “Jess” an 8 year old black and

white moggy with real attitude,

who recently flew down from

Nelson to see Dr Steve Heap for

emergency surgery on her left eye.

Her primary vet at Alabama Vets,

had seen her a week earlier for a

painful superficial ulcer ( probably

from a cat scratch injury). Jess

was very hard to examine so

was started on topical eye

ointment and anti-inflammatory

medication. Jess was otherwise

well. She returned 2 days later as

her owners couldn’t medicate

the eye either. By this stage her

left eye was producing a bloody

infected discharge, had swelled

up and the ulcer had grown in

size. Her vet added in antibiotic

tablets and more medication

for inflammation, swelling

and pain but the next day the

ulcer looked no better. Jess

needed to be sedated as the

vet couldn’t examine this eye

with her awake. Her eye was

stained with fluorosein( as can

be seen in the attached photo)

and had become non healing

and so given the difficulty

in medicating Jess it was thought a better

way to go was surgery in Christchurch with

DrSteve Heap.

So Jess flew to Steve and was operated on

immediately to prevent the eye collapsing

and impaired vision. Steve performed

a lamellar keratectomy to remove the

dead, soft, spongy tissue on edges of the

deep stromal corneal ulcer. A conjunctival

flap was sutured over the large defect

to allow the perfect environment for

healing, meaning a good blood supply and

protection from environmental allergens.

Due to the difficulty in checking the healing

progress of Jess’s eye it was thought a good

idea to board her at McMaster & Heap vets

until Steve was happy that the ulcer was

healing. As we were still unable to get near

her eye to apply drops, long acting injections

were given for ease and for her comfort.

Needless to say she needs a head collar worn

to stop her irritating her eye, undoing all

Steve’s good work.

So far so good 4 days out from her surgery.

She is eating up a storm and feisty again

which means she’s back to her happy self.

Steve has given the all clear and she flies

home on Friday to her eagerly awaiting,

doting parents.

Steve sees at least 10 eye referrals daily and

many of these patients end up needing

surgery. Eye injuries can’t wait if the end

result is to save the eye and Steve will often

come into the clinic on his days off to see

emergency cases. The take home message

here is don’t wait with eye problems – get

them looked at early by your vet, as two eyes

are always better than one!!

for Social Credit

John Ring has lived in

Christchurch for about 40

Democrats for Social

Credit believe citizen’s initiated

referendums should be

binding.

They also favour a universal

basic income, which

is different from the basic

income Gareth Morgan

advocates, because it would

be paid to all permanent

residents, both adults and

children, but the payment

for children would be less

and would be paid to their

parents, or whoever was

looking after them.

Democrats for Social

Credit also want to abolish

GST, and to re-establish

a Lyttelton to Wellington

ferry service.

They also want New

Zealand to become carbon

neutral.

Mr Ring is also in favour

of having commuter rail in

Christchurch, including a

railway station in Hornby.

GENERAL ELECTION 2017 – MEET THE CANDIDATES

Port Hills electorate

Eugenie Sage –

Green Party

We need a healthy

environment for people

and the economy to thrive.

The Green Party wants

to make our ‘100% Pure

NZ’ image real again. As

part of a progressive new

government we will clean

up our rivers and protect

Canterbury’s aquifers, the

source of our drinking

water.

We will use the revenue

from a new charge on

nitrogen pollution to help

farmers change the way

they farm to have fewer

cows, more forestry, fruit,

vegetable and grain crops.

We will invest in

conservation by doubling

the Department of

Conservation’s baseline

funding to take care of our

native plants and wildlife

and natural heritage. These

are all issues I have worked

hard on in parliament.

Giving your party vote to

the Greens is a vote for a

kinder, fairer society.

To protect our

environment and our

economy and for real

action on climate change, I

would welcome your party

vote. ​

Gary Gribben –

Democrats for Social

Credit

The housing in our

country is in a horrible state

largely because the National

government have been

asleep at the wheel.

A DSC Government

would use Reserve Bank

credit, low interest and

suspensory loans for people

starting out.

We are very concerned

at the way the present

Government has

abandoned our families.

DSC would stamp

out poverty to give our

children a future with real

tax reforms, including

replacing GST with a

tiny financial transaction

tax.

SOUTHERN VIEW

We will also bring in a

universal basic income

which will take a lot of

pressure off us all, helping

put food on the table and a

roof over our heads,

and create better

opportunities.

Health funding including

mental health together

with education (no student

loans) should be needs

based.

Local authorities, rail and

shipping, environmental

matters (climate change,

cleaning up rivers, vermin

eradication) will be funded

by our own bank.

Where to cast your vote

Denis O’Rourke, New

Zealand First

National’s legacy is

economic stagnation,

poverty and a housing

crisis.

NZ First will increase the

minimum wage over three

years to at least $20/hour

and provide compensation

for businesses through the

taxation system.

We will raise benefits to

a living income level and

build thousands of modest

homes on smaller sections,

for first home buyers to

purchase over 25 years

without needing a deposit.

Housing NZ will be fully

funded. We will fully fund

health services, improve

mental health provision,

and revise ACC.

Tertiary education will

be free (with conditions,)

and we will set up workforce

planning to match

skills with demand, have

career support services for

both student and adults to

find jobs.

We will invest in

economic development

in the regions – beyond

just road improvements

– rebuild our neglected

railways, and genuinely

tackle climate change

through innovation and

large scale reafforestation.

And we will clean up our

lakes and rivers without

water taxes.

NEW CORRECTIONS recruit

Charmaine Shaw is using her

skills as the manager of the

South Island Scorpions rugby

league team in her new career as

a frontline officer.

She is working at Christchurch

Women’s Prison after completing

her 12-week Corrections officer

development pathway course. She

was presented with the minister’s

excellence award acknowledging

the leadership, passion and

professionalism she displayed

throughout her training.

Mrs Shaw, of Halswell, says

there are parallels between the

skills she has honed through her

involvement with the Scorpions

and the approach she takes every

day working in the prison.

“You have to be dedicated and

loyal to the task at hand,” she says.

“Just like training for rugby

league, you have to be committed

whether it’s in the sunshine

or in the pouring rain. You learn

to take the not so good days with

the really good days and recognise

that’s just the way life rolls

sometimes. You can’t get hung

up on the negatives.

“It’s like losing a game where

you learn from what didn’t work

well, accept the loss and maybe

try a different strategy next time.

“In the Scorpions, we want to

encourage the young players to

be good young men who will

grow up to be good husbands

and fathers. You want them to be

positive contributors to society

and get them to take all the opportunities

given to them.

“We look for talent and skill on

the field, but the players’ attitude

is their most important attribute.

In a split second a person’s attitude

can take them to a good

place or a bad place – I’m looking

for the same thing with the

women in prison I work with.”

Mrs Shaw says her work in

education, with youth and with

people with mental health issues

has helped with her understanding

of her new role. Her knowledge

of Te Reo Maori will also

be put to great use in the prison’s

programmes.

“I am proud to be Maori, the

statistics for Maori in prisons

are not very good and I want to

be a positive Maori role model

to the people I work with daily,”

she said.

“I feel very humbled to be in a

role where I can influence others

and utilise my people skills to

assist and guide others to want to

be better people and change their

lives so that they never return to

prison.”

The Corrections officer

development pathway is a new

training package for custodial officers

that blends on-the-job and

classroom-based learning for

employment instructors.

her role at

Fire rages, homes at risk

staff have a key role in progressing

learners along the pathway.

“I absolutely loved college and

the experiences we had,” said

Mrs Shaw.

“Our facilitators were engaging,

supportive and passionate in

giving us the foundation tools we

needed to start in our new roles

on the frontline.

“The camaraderie of both my

Christchurch-based colleagues

and also my wider training

cohort was a huge driving force

behind my learning,” she says.

“I am loving being at Christchurch

Women’s Prison. It is a

great place to start my career and

there are plenty of opportunities

to continue learning.”

Christchurch Women’s Prison

director Wayne McKnight says

although Mrs Shaw is new to

Corrections she is already making

her mark.

“The skills she already learnt

leading to her career change to

Corrections have put her in a

good place for this role. Working

in a prison can be extremely

challenging but also rewarding.”

“Much like sports management,

it is all about people,

You need to be patient, supportive

and constantly watching for

that opportunity.”

Tech enthusiast makes tracks for model show

STOKED: Celyn Bennet with his Boggy Creek model train layout.

Pastor to lead new school board

• By Emily O’Connell

SOUTH WEST Baptist Church

pastor Warren Read has been

appointed board of trustees

chairman for the new primary

school which will open in

Halswell.

Pastor Read, Sarah Lowe

(deputy chairwoman), Amanda

Wall, Giarne Harrison and

Rodney King make up the board

for the school, which will be

sited in Knights Stream Park.

The school will open in

January 2019.

The school, which has not yet

been given a name, will cater for

up to 450 pupils from year 1-8.

Mrs Lowe is a preparatory

music director at The Cathedral

Grammar School, Mrs Wall is

a senior adviser at Regenerate

Christchurch, Mrs Harrison is

a mother of two children with

a background in education,

advocacy, community service

and administration and Mr

King is a guidance counsellor at

Oxford Area School.

Mr Read said he’s “excited to

be part of a great team who have

been appointed to set up the

new school. I look forward to

meeting the community in the

days to come.”

Mr Read said his family

built their house in the area

three years ago and they love

being part of the Halswell

community.

He said he has had significant

experience serving on a school

• By Roy Sinclair

AVONHEAD teenager Celyn

Bennet is an unrepentant railway

devotee.

He best expresses his interest

by creating model railway

layouts.

Owing to space limitations,

two of his projects are set up

outdoors. Both layouts are based

on the popular HO scale or a

ratio of 1:87.

One of his layouts is ‘Boggy

Creek’, which Celyn exhibited at

last year’s BIG Model Train Show

in Christchurch.

It represents a one-time bush

tramway associated with a

pioneer New Zealand sawmill.

He said he “liked the look of”

the layout’s integrated sawmill

building and rustic steam shovel.

The second layout is ‘Tussock

Flats’, a work in progress for this

year’s show.

It represents a typical 1950s

New Zealand country railway

station with sidings and a main

line.

Celyn is involved with the

Canterbury Railway Society at

Ferrymead and the Mainline

Steam Trust at Sockburn.

the basis of what the patient

tells them and then they’ll

qualify that by saying this is

in accordance with what the

patient said.”

Mr Gartly said there are two

separate issues to be considered.

The first is whether the

trees should be removed and

the second is if they should be

replaced and if so, by who?

“The city council would

look more favourably on the

residents replacing the trees.

But let’s face it, they are city

council trees. We can’t go out

there and cut the things down

and because of their height

now the city council have to

issue themselves a resource

consent to cut the trees down,”

Mr Gartly said.

“The catalyst for modelling was

from watching James May’s Toy

Stories television programme,

where he talked about his fascination

with well-known model

train brands, such as Hornby,”

Celyn said.

He utilises technology when

designing and building rolling

stock or line side structures.

He will compile items on his

computer and send them as a 3D

model to his 3D printer.

The printer then builds the

solid item in fine layers of plastic.

Celyn sources plans from the

NZ Model Railway journal and

compiles his computer model

utilising AutoCAD Fusion 360

software, which is free for students.

The Tussock Flats layout will be

operated by Hornby elink from

his PC or an app on his smart

phone.

by a frost and then a

surprise.

Most people will have

seen the news about the

fire crews can only do so

much, using tarpaulins to

either direct water away or

to protect contents.

start the long process of

mentioned the bad practice

of putting combustible

Golden Healthcare Group’s

position at the forefront of

Canterbury’s residential care

services is cemented by a

state-of-the-art facility being

developed at Lady Wigram

Retirement Village providing

hotel-style accommodation

for those residents who enjoy

being part of a vibrant, social

community.

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

121 Skyhawk Road

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.

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, and 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.

Golden Healthcare employs 260 at its

facilities which care for about 350 residents.

All staff are highly trained, experienced,

and qualified in their roles.

Respite care is also provided at all

facilities.

Methyl B-12

Research supports

eye health

Emerging research has shown as many as 50 per cent of older

adults and as many as 25 per cent of younger adults are deficient

in vitamin B12.

B12 is essential for energy production,

cell health, regulation of mood and

sleep cycles, nerve health and repair and

prevention of homocysteine - a serious

cardiovascular risk factor that is known

to cause damage and plaque in the blood

vessels. It can also increase the chances

of a stroke. Harvard researchers found

a 34 per cent decrease risk of vision loss

in a study of participants aged 40+ who

supplemented with B12. Another study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

subjects in their 60s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

seems to be due to our body’s inability

to absorb it as we age, as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication and other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption.

The good news is B12 in the form of

Methylcobalamin sublingual tablets that

are dissolved in the mouth and thru

bypassing the digestive tract have been

shown to effectively raise B12 levels in the

body.

- WE ARE ALWAYS HAPPY TO HELP! -

Nutritional researchers have discovered a

range of nutrients that are essential for eye

health. Some of the most essential nutrients

that have been shown to protect and even

improve eye function are:

Selenium, is a trace mineral that is low

in N.Z. soils and therefore in many of

our foods. Researchers believe selenium

may help prevent cataracts, macular

degeneration (the leading cause of impaired

vision in older people) and may also

improve dry eyes and general eye health.

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage

of the population are low in. Zinc has been

shown to help protect the eyes from the

damaging effects of light as well as slow

vision loss due to macular degeneration.

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Betacarotene

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper have

potent antioxidant ability and help protect

the eyes from damage

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing

nutrients that have been shown in landmark

research to not only provide potent eye

protection but may even help reverse

some of the signs of age-related macular

degeneration (AMD).

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in potent

antioxidants may help protect the lens and

retina from damage and reduce the risk of

cataracts. They also may help improve blood

supply to the eye, strengthen the small

capillaries of the eye and may help improve

night vision, may alleviate many eye

ailments including eye fatigue that may be

caused by reading, driving and computers.

Eyebright may help normalise eye

pressure and reduce eye allergies.

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential

for correct eye function. It may also have a

detoxifying affect on the eye.

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye fatigue,

bloodshot eyes and maintain good vision.

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection.

It provides many nutrients, is rich in

oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) that

are potent antioxidants that may protect

eyesight.

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic

amount should provide comprehensive eye

protection, may slow and possibly even help

reverse eye damage that could lead to loss

of vision. All these nutrients are available

in an economical one a day easy to swallow

capsule.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Anxiety and breathing

– are they related?

When good breathing goes bad

Have you experienced any of these

breathing difficulty symptoms?

• Disturbed sleep

• Erratic heartbeats*

• Feeling anxious and uptight

• Upset gut/nausea

• Chest pains*

• Shattered confidence

• Tired all the time

• Achy muscles and joints

• Dizzy spells* or feeling spaced out

• Irritability or hypervigilance

• Frequent yawning and sighing

• Breathing discomfort*

• Pins and needles

• Feelings of ‘air hunger’

*Check with your doctor if you experience

these symptoms.

These questions are asked on

the website www.BradCliff.com.

BradCliff was started by North Island

physiotherapists Dinah Bradley and

Tania Cliffton Smith, who specialise in

hyperventilation and anxiety treatment.

Their website notes one in 10 people

experience some form of breathing pattern

disorder or chronic over breathing at some

time in their lives, resulting in a range

of disturbing or frightening symptoms

puzzling to you and your doctor.

You feel unwell because of overbreathing,

and overbreathing makes you feel unwell.

A vicious cycle is established, which is a

major stress all by itself. This is experienced

currently by many Cantabrians, says Ietje

van Stolk of Physical Sense Gym & Physio.

As she explains, it is normal to breathe fast

and in the upper chest when we are in danger

and fight or flight is needed. We know all

about that here, due to the earthquakes.

Normally, once the danger is gone, our

breathing should restore itself within a

couple of days. We would then be using the

diaphragm for our normal nonstressed

breathing. We have been having a hard

time restoring our breathing pattern

here in Canterbury because every time

our body tried to achieve that, the next

aftershock came rolling in. Even though the

aftershocks have significantly diminished,

some people’s fight or flight mode

breathing has become chronic, or habitual,

Ietje says. And, as she points out, using the

wrong muscles for breathing means these

overworked muscles cause headaches, neck

pain and jaw pain.

With fast upper chest breathing, sighing

and yawning, the resulting disturbance

of our oxygen and carbon dioxide levels

can give us the feeling we are not able to

control our own body. One moment you

are feeling fine, next moment your chest

feels tight, you feel out of breath, your

heart beats erratically and you may even

experience dizziness and/or tingling.

Very scary if you do not understand what

is happening. No wonder this causes

anxiety. Not being the boss over our own

body makes us anxious, anxiety feeds the

faulty breathing pattern, and so it goes on.

The BradCliff physiotherapists have

established a national network of

practitioners that regularly train together

and can help you overcome this problem.

Physical Sense is part of that network.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

for those busy evenings after work to relax

in.

There are three double bedrooms, all

opening onto a deck, two with mezzanine

floors and the master having an ensuite

and walk in robe, plus a good-sized family

bathroom. Both bathrooms are presented

to a high standard - nothing to do here, the

hard work has been done. There is also a

fourth bedroom upstairs, a great teenage

hideaway.

On the practical side, this home has the

bonus of heaps of storage, beautiful builtin

cabinetry, an internal vacuum system,

central heating and a large laundry.

Step from your kitchen onto a sunny

deck surrounded by your own little bit of

paradise. The home is nestled into the land

with a private, well-established landscaped

garden that is easy care to boot. Sheltered

from the easterly you get to enjoy the

renowned Cashmere microclimate within

easy reach of the central city.

To complete the picture, you have easy

drive on access, off street parking with

garaging and a carport to put your car and

bikes away.

Call now to view - this property may well

sell before the scheduled auction day.

Open Home: Saturdays and Sundays

12:00pm - 12:30pm.
