MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel and

the city’s top police officer will

meet over the ongoing problems

at the Riccarton bus lounge.

Ms Dalziel hopes to meet with

Superintendent John Price early

next month, as finding solutions

to anti-social behaviour at the

bus lounge linger.

The lounge, on the corner of

Riccarton Rd and Division St,

has been plagued with youth issues

since it opened in December

2015.

A working party, consisting

of Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board members,

business and landowners, police,

community groups and residents’

association representatives,

has made 19 recommendations

to help solve the issues. They

include extending bus lounge

closing times, playing music in

Division St, which would attract

more people to the area, and

changing the current bus lounge

wi-fi policies.

City councillors also decided

to lobby central Government

to request a review of the Local

Government Act bylaw provisions

that would allow arrests

to be made or instant fines to be

issued for breaching a bylaw.

Ms Dalziel said instant fines

can be effective but not if you

don’t have the money to pay

them, which a lot of children and

their parents do not.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

IF LIANNE Dalziel and police

chief John Price can’t get any

action on solving problems at the

Riccarton bus lounge, then the

war is lost (see page 1).

That’s the latest twist on this

long drawn out saga that is now

nearly two years in the making.

The problem: Teenagers and

others causing problems for bus

users and businesses in the area.

The solution: Good, strong

policing.

But the police can’t be everywhere

and disorder issues at the

lower end of the scale get a low

priority.

However, people using the bus

lounge should be able to do so

without being hassled and made

to feel intimidated.

Police initially thought a bylaw

would do the trick but that has

gone by the wayside. A cynic

might say resourcing.

So it’s up to Dalziel and Price.

Objection over medical centre plan

• By Bridget Rutherford and

Andrew King

SOCIAL ANXIETY, security

risks and fears someone will

report her dogs to the authorities

are the reasons one neighbour

has objected to a new medical

centre in Hillmorton.

But a few tweaks and she

would be happy to let the development

proceed.

The Martin Family Trust applied

to the city council in February

2016 for a consent to build

an ‘integrated family health

centre’ on 30-36 Lincoln Rd and

121 Domain Tce.

The facility would include a

pharmacy and will be split into

six different tenancies.

Ellyn Taawera-Patterson,

whose property borders the

proposed site, submitted against

it saying the new development

would raise security concerns

and have a negative impact on

her animals.

A resource management act

hearing panel met last Tuesday

to hear her concerns.

She said the previous neighbours,

a Muslim church and

Deerstalkers Association, had a

high gate that was locked when

they were not on site.

“My understanding is the car

park [for the medical centre]

won’t be locked [at night and on

the weekends] which will give

easier access to my property

than previously,” she said in her

submission.

The increased vehicle activity

in the car park, she said, could

cause her dogs to bark, annoying

the neighbours who then may

report the noise, putting her

responsible pet owner status at

risk.

Ms Taawera-Patterson said

she has a phobia of people and

the increased amount of people

coming and going from the

site could increase her anxiety

and “ability to deal with life in

general”.

“I moved into this place in

the 90s because I knew it was

all residential,” she said. “I don’t

want to block it [the medical

centre] entirely, I need to look

after me though.”

She has included in her

submission a few suggestions to

solve her concerns, including

soundproofing her home and

installing a high, locked gate and

security lighting for the evenings

and weekends.

City council head of

resource consents John

Gibson said the hearing has

not yet been closed by the

commissioner and a decision

is not likely for at least 15

days.

“A hearing was required because

when the application was

notified there was a submission

in opposition,” he said.​

Meanwhile, a resource management

act hearing will be

held today to discuss Foodstuffs

South Island’s plan to establish

a New World on 92-108 Lincoln

Rd.

It has applied for resource

consent from the city council for

the supermarket, which includes

car parking, vehicle access, landscaping,

signage and stormwater

treatment.

The supermarket would be

built on the former SuperValue

site, along with neighbouring

properties.

INTERSECTION PROGRESS

Public consultation on the

improvement has finished.

City council staff are currently

working on a report which will

go to the Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board at its meeting

on November 7 after analysing

and collating the feedback.

CEMETERY CLEAN-UP

More than 25 residents and city

council staff worked to clear

270kg of rubbish and greenwaste

from the historic Addington

of the cemetery was supported

by a Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board off the

ground fund grant, which went

towards a barbecue and drinks

for the volunteers.

NO PEDESTRIAN ISLAND

A pedestrian island is not likely

to be constructed on Tennyson

St in Beckenham. City council

staff investigated the possibility

of a fifth refuge island on the

street after the community

raised safety concerns. However,

after its assessment as a low to

medium accident risk area, city

council staff considered the

street unlikely to be a priority for

any available funding.

Veterinary practice

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A VET

NURSE AT McMASTER & HEAP

Its early morning and the HOSPITAL nurse is

already hard at work, caring for her sometimes

numerous & varied hospital patients who have

stayed the night.

She cuddles & chats away to them

reassuringly as if they were her own!

Some soiled patients are sponge bathed,

while other patients are syringe fed. She checks,

untwists and flushes IV catheters, administers

morning medications, fresh food & clean

bedding is lovingly placed! All observations are

recorded ready for the “Vet rounds”, just as in a

hospital!

The Vets at McMaster & Heap rely heavily on

the expertise and thoroughness of our nurses

to inform us with regards to the patients in

her care. The vets check over their patients,

authorize blood tests or radiographs, change

medication or nutrition plans and update the

owners.

Then its back to the hospital nurse to care

for the needs of these patients over the course

of the day, updating the vet, speaking to the

family members involved and organizing

visiting times. Excellent time management skills

are required to triage the sick arrivals through

the day and care for the already sick and injured.

Note taking and recording of medications given

is of utmost importance.

Meanwhile the doors have opened & the

RECEPTION nurse is cheerfully assisting the

receptionist, greeting a continuous stream

of pets and their owners arriving for today’s

appointments & procedures!

She expertly multi tasks while answering the

relentlessly ringing phones-today she will take

a huge number of calls with a wide variety of

questions. She must use her problem solving

skills to know when it is OK for a patient to

come in later in the day, or if in fact it may

require a much more urgent consult time.

The SURGICAL nurse gets ready for her

busy day ahead. Patients start arriving at 8am

for admittance and some days we have 4

vets operating and a list of over 15 surgical

procedures to work through. Every nurse has a

vet assigned to them to allow continuity of care.

She will talk kindly & soothingly to each

patient while efficiently placing IV catheters

& obtain blood and urine samples to run

diagnostic tests for the vet. She then calculates

and administers her patients pre anaesthetic

medications as instructed.

Anaesthetic machines must then be checked

& the surgical room fully equipped for the

variety of today’s procedures!

Once everything is ready, she will assist the

vet in the patients induction and intubation,

before swiftly attaching all monitoring

equipment, as well as manual checks. Once

happy the patient is stable, she sterile preps the

patients surgical site. She closely monitors the

patient through the entire procedure, alerting

the vet to any subtle changes in the patients

anaesthetic depth, blood pressure and more.

She carefully moves the patient over to a

cosy recovery bed, where the hospital nurse is

waiting to continue the post operative care.

Evening consults are arriving & reception is a

hype of activity. Phones are ringing constantly

& owners are arriving to pick up their animals

from surgery & hospital.

The reception nurse expertly talks to owners

experiencing a wide range of emotions, from

extreme sadness, stress, anxiety, to those who

are excited or just plain relieved to be able to

see their furry friend once more. She goes over

the large variety of discharge information that

the vets & nurses have carefully put aside for

their patients.

The hospital nurse kindly talks to worried

owners who are visiting their pets and updates

them on the vets plan for overnight care.

She carries out her final rounds and ensures

everyone gets a cuddle goodnight!

She assists the vet in preparing any extremely

unwell patients that require transfer to the after

hours clinic.

At 7pm the last consult has finished, and

the doors are closed! The nurses may still

be buzzing around for another hour or so,

depending on today’s work load. Although

sometimes they are totally exhausted (&

covered in various unidentified stains & smells!)

they go home to their own pets with a big

smile on their face. They know each day they

assist the vets in making a huge difference to

animals lives by putting 100% of time, love, care

& knowledge to ensure each furry patient and

it’s owner has had the best veterinary service

and care possible!!

The benefits of car pooling

City

councillor

Anne

Galloway

talks

about car

sharing, its benefits

and why you should

start doing it

If cycling and taking

the bus are not options

for you, car pooling is

another way to cut costs,

chat with fellow travellers

and potentially to speed up

travel.

Traffic, particularly on

Halswell and Lincoln Rds,

banks up regularly at rush

hour at both ends of each

day.

It’s especially bad on

rainy days when regular

bus users or cyclists take

to their cars to stay dry.

Car pooling, as little as

once a week or even once a

fortnight will make a significant

difference to traffic

congestion.

Wherever you are in the

city, car pooling can help.

Car pooling helps you

save money, by dividing

up the petrol costs among

your car pool passengers.

Car pooling also helps you

save on the cost of vehicle

repairs and maintenance

if you rotate vehicle use

between the members of

your car pool team. Additionally,

you and everyone

else can save some money

on road fees because with

more car pooling there

are fewer cars on the road

and therefore less wear

and damage to the roads

that need to be repaired

each year using ratepayers

money.

Car pooling helps the

environment. Car pooling

cuts down on the number

of cars and vehicles on the

road. Fewer cars means

there’s less carbon and

other gasses and pollution

getting into the air. This

protects the environment

by keeping the air, water,

and land cleaner.

Car pooling is good for

your health. According to

numerous health reports

and research, air pollution

caused by auto emissions

can significantly increase

the likelihood of health

issues such as asthma,

allergies, lung cancer and

chronic obstructive pulmonary

disease.

Research data has also

suggested that car pooling

can be far less stressful

than simply commuting on

your own.

Car pooling is a very

convenient option which

can give you great flexibility.

Whatever your

needs are, you can look

for people who need that

same schedule or who can

add you to their route. The

flexibility makes it a very

convenient option for any

long commute.

Car pooling is also a

wonderful way to meet

interesting people, get to

know the people you work

with or go to school with,

and to make new friends.

Coach cracks whip with students

Players must

attend class or

no basketball

• By Andrew King

“I WANT to do it my way, all the

way, or not at all.”

That’s the message Canterbury

Rams co-captain Marques

Whippy delivered to players

when he first arrived to coach

the Hillmorton High basketball

team in April this year.

A big part of his message was

that in order to stay in the team,

you had to attend class.

“I got the boys to sign contracts,

which say they have to go

to class. If they miss class or are

late three times, then they don’t

play,” Whippy said.

That appears have paid dividends

both on the court and off

it.

The team has just finished

their season after finishing

second at nationals and winning

their local competition and

South Islands.

Last year Hillmorton finished

last at nationals, second in the

local competition and third in

the South Islands.

Joshua Nickel has brought into

the Whippy philosophy and said

while the school work may not

get easier, the motivation to turn

up and give it his best shot has

come from the programme.

“If we don’t turn up, we can’t

play. So that makes us turn up

and go hard at our school work,”

he said.

Joshua, 18, is in his last year

at Hillmorton and aims to head

to university next year and

study science as well as follow in

Whippy’s footsteps and play for

the Rams.

Hillmorton sports co-ordinator

Andrea Kendrew said it is

hard to determine what effect the

rules are having on the students

in the classroom, but most of

them will pass this year.

“One has really pulled his

socks up and is attending every

class and that will affect his

school work,” she said.

She said the students look up

to Whippy as he has been in a

similar position himself.

“In a way, he relates to a lot of

the boys, he might see himself

in them. It like ‘I was there once

and I can help these guys out’,”

she said.

Whippy brought an American-styled

culture to the team,

something he learned in his time

at Woods Cross High School,

Utah, and Brigham Young University–Hawaii.

“I played basketball in high

school in the States and it is all

about grades as well as the sport.

I want to bring that culture

here.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

I got the boys to sign

class or are late three times,

then they don’t play

– Marques Whippy

after a couple of players were late

to class three times which meant

they had to sit out a game, but

Whippy had no problem enforcing

his rules.

“They have not missed class

since,” he laughed.

To roll out a similar code

through other sports in the

school would require the coaches

coming on board and driving it,

much like Whippy does, Ihaia

said.

“We tried with the girls

[basketball] team but it didn’t

work out. I would love to get it

through all sports in the school,”

she said.

Canterbury Basketball

Association community

manager James Lissaman

said having Whippy coach at

Hillmorton was fantastic for the

players.

“He is a Polynesian role model

and being able to work with kids

similar to him is great. The mana

he brings on and off the court

really resonates with them,” he

said.

GREAT NIGHT: Pleasant Point Yacht Club life member Bob

Scott, 97, got his hands on the America’s Cup with Team New

Zealand crewman Joe Sullivan during an event on Saturday

night to raise money for the club’s rebuild.

• By Sophie Cornish

ABOUT $25,000 was raised for

the rebuild of Pleasant Point

Yacht Club on Saturday night.

The event called An Evening

with Emirates Team New Zealand

ran smoothly, said Pleasant

Point Yacht Club spokesman

Nigel Humphreys. The club

rebuild is planned for South New

Brighton Park.

Life member of the club, Bob

Scott, 97, was given to a lot of

attention by Team New Zealand

member Joe Sullivan. The formerly

“very competitive” yachtie

joined the club in 1936 and is the

oldest living member.

He was club commodore in the

1950s and club captain for many

years.

Mr Scott’s daughter, Carol

Scott, said they had a fantastic

evening and her father particularly

enjoyed the team’s presentation

which included footage on

the water.

Ms Scott said Mr Sullivan

made a fuss of her father. The

two men have mutual friends

including New Zealand sailor

and broadcaster Peter Lester’s

father, who Mr Scott went to

school with.

Mr Sullivan organised members

of the Team New Zealand

to sign a plaque commemorating

Canterbury’s only challenge in

the Little America’s Cup challenge

in the 1974, which Mr Scott

brought along on the night. The

Little Americas Cup, now known

as the International Catamaran

Challenge Trophy, is a race between

C class catamarans.

He said the problem is mostly

during the late afternoon, weekends

“To address the issue police

are working with retailers in the

area, local youth workers, the

city council, mall and bus exchange

security,” Senior Sergeant

McDaniel said.

He said as a result of the multiorganisation

approach, police

have seen a decrease in reports of

anti-social behaviour.

The other 17 recommendations

are still being investigated by staff

the community board and then to

the city council.

Community board chairman

recommendations will be in place

Culture and hygiene mix at Sacred Heart

SACRED HEART School pupils

in Addington were among the

first Christchurch children to get

their hands on innovative posters

that use humour to promote Te

Reo Maori.

Designed by commercial cleaning

company CrestClean, the

posters also contain important

health and hygiene messages.

Depicting cartoon characters,

the four unique designs immediately

struck a chord with the

school.

Principal Frank McManus

believes good resources in Te Reo

Maori are scarce and the posters

will be a big hit at the school.

The posters would also double

as a teaching aid in the school’s

Te Reo programme.

“Health and hygiene is huge.

We don’t always have the right

messages up around the school,”

said Mr McManus.

“These bold posters are fantastic

for that. If one child is doing it

right then they are likely to pass

it on to others and that’s great,”

he said.

Sets of the posters are available

free to all schools.

The poster initiative has been

hailed by the president of the

Te Akatea New Zealand Maori

Principals’ Association, Hoana

Pearson.

“For years, many of us in

Maori education have been hand

drawing and photocopying our

resources,” she said.

“To see things that are beautiful

and produced in colour for our

kids and our communities really

validates the beauty of Te Reo

and of them.”

POSTERS: Sacred Heart

School principal Frank

McManus receives the

posters from CrestClean

regional manager Gina

Holland. Looking on are pupils

Rachel Flutey, Sean Ferrer,

Angelo Bancale, and Te

Haeata Noble-Gray.

Readers respond to the

article regarding a lobby

effort to get a dog park for

Ferrymead

Cherry Daly – Regarding the

proposed dedicated dog park at

Ferrymead. I agree that the eastern

suburbs are in dire need of a

dedicated dog park. This site is

central to the region and would

be absolutely perfect. Many

thanks to city councillor Yani

Johanson for making this proposal

and hoping that the notoriously

anti-dog city council will

see their way clear to approving

this as soon as possible.

Michael Wilson – This is a

brilliant idea. I live in the area

and frequently take my dogs to

this area for exercise. I’m sure

this will go some way to controlling

the rabbits and stopping the

dirt bike guys being annoying

early evening. Bravo to the person

who thought of this.

Gayel Marquet – That

sounds like a fabulous idea but

the reason dogs love the beach

is that owners do too. Give the

owners a major unique reason

and features (a pond to splash

in) to attract them to Ferrymead

and then educate them to be off

the beach and I’m all for it – and

I don’t even have a dog. Also

re the article next to this about

skateboarding . . . here we go

again, one nimby (not in my

backyard) spoiling it for all –

give Sumner kids a place to go.

Paula Mayer and her dog

Frankie – I wish to support a

dog park at Ferrymead – to have

an alternative to the beach.

Jo Wilson – I was so happy

to read the article regarding a

proposal to turn the old Maori

Village site at Ferrymead into

a dog park. I have lived in Mt

Pleasant for a number of years

and have often thought that the

site would be perfect for a dog

park. I walk my dog around

there on a regular basis and

would definitely use it even

more if it were made more dog

friendly. The eastern and hill

suburbs including Lyttelton are

woefully lacking when it comes

PLAN: A report on whether the former Tamaki Maori Village site in Ferrymead could be turned

into a dog park is expected to return before Christmas. ​

to designated dog parks and I

have no doubt the Ferrymead

site would be utilised by many

of us dog owners on this side of

town. Let’s hope the city council

will make it a reality.

Belinda Rooney – Yes, we

support this.

Anthea Wilson – Yes, I

would definitely use it – in fact I

already use it on occasion. Once

it is fully fenced and some of the

potholes filled it will be brilliant.

About a year and half ago I

emailed the city council suggesting

it but never heard back.

So it is a yes from me.

Ann Newsom – I think its

great idea to have a dog park at

Ferrymead on the old Maori village

site. It would be an alternative

to the beach which if full of

dogs at summer week ends.

Jill Reesby – Excellent idea.

Sounds like all of the buildings

have already been removed and

it is now bare land, so this would

be an excellent idea as more and

more restrictions on free running

of dogs is implemented.

Jeffrey Gibson – It already

is a dog park on most weekends.

Sarah Joseph – I think a

dog park in Ferrymead is an

excellent idea. I’ve been looking

for safe places to let our dog

have a run off the lead.

Nick Stoneman – No to

a dog park got lots of them

already.

Karen Beaumont – If is not

going to be used again, leave the

buildings there and turn it into

a paintball adventure. At least

you can still make money off it.

Plenty of dog parks already, it’s

called the red zone.

Jenny Bradley – Can’t help

thinking this will attract people

who may not like seeing my dog

walking around with a dead

rabbit in his jaws.

Pamela Dixon – I reckon we

have plenty of areas for our dogs

to play, how about a theme park?

Way more exciting.

Tess Lenihan – Best idea

ever. A lot of dog walkers go

here already. Plus it might eliminate

the mass rabbit population

up there.

Anita Beukenholdt – Great

idea but plant the boundary

with edible fruit trees so it has

more than one purpose.

Margaret Nicholas –

Great. We need lots more

dog parks. They bring people

together and are great for

socialising. Make it like the Styx

Park.

Hazel Cain – About time

our animals had a great park

with plenty of different smells

to find.

Lisa Peters – How fantastic

our dogs love it there. Nice and

safe. Great place on a warm

day.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Urban

forest

opens in

Woolston

THE TE Oranga Waikura urban

forest and stormwater basin was

scheduled to officially open last

night.

The urban forest has been

planted in Woolston on land that

was previously part of Linwood

College’s lower fields.

The earthquake-damaged land

was bought by city council to use

as a stormwater basin to reduce

the risk of flooding for properties

in the surrounding area during

severe weather.

The city council has turned the

flood mitigation measure into

a forested reserve that will also

bring ecological and community

benefits.

The reserve features a loop

walkway and more than 16,000

naive trees and plants.

It was opened last night with a

formal blessing ceremony which

was attended by city councillors,

Linwood Central Heathcote

Community Board members, the

Te Waka Una School Kapa Haka,

city council general manager of

city services David Adamson and

members of the public.

Community board chairwoman

Sally Buck said the board is very

excited about the opening of the

reserve.

“While some of us might not see

the full benefits in our lifetime,

this is a true legacy project and

will be enjoyed for generations to

come. It will create a green space

in a part of the city that really

needs it while also reducing the

risk of flooding for local residents,

which is very important.”

Council landscape architect and

ecologist Dr Antony Shadbolt said

the reserve will seem forest-like

within a decade.

It is strategically located to

provide both a core habitat and

a stepping stone for native bush

bird movement across the city.

Fighter overcomes poor start

SOUTHERN VIEW

• By Tania Butterfield

WHEN 16-YEAR-OLD

Cashmere High School student

Kai Edwards stared down

his opponent in the final of

the men’s junior dan kendo

competition, he had one thing on

his mind.

“I have to squish this spider.

But if I get cocky, he can bite me

back.”

Kai was one of nine members

of the Sei Tou Ken Yu Kai

Canterbury Kendo Club to participate

in the Rembuden Taikai

competition in Wellington.

About 60 of New Zealand’s top

competitors attended the event.

Kendo is the Japanese martial

art of sword fighting, known as

‘the way of the samurai.’

Competitors use their shinai

(bamboo sword) to hit their

opponent on the hand, head or

torso to score points.

Kai is one of four New Zealanders

who fight in the jodan

(sword above the head) position.

“The biggest challenge of the

competition was the continuous

thought of “What if I lose this

fight?,” Kai said.

“I wanted to show the judges

my full potential and that they

had made right decision choosing

me to be the New Zealand

team apprentice for next year’s

world championships.”

Losing his first fight of the day

was difficult, but Kai credits the

support of his coach Blake Bennett

and fellow teammates to get

him through to the final.

“They gave me the encouragement

to get back up onto my feet

and push through, remembering

what my best result is,” Kai said.

“Blake had told me that

kendo isn’t all about winning,

getting a medal is only a bonus.

This taught me to think not just

about the winning but to focus

on doing the best of my ability

and to have no regrets.”

That report is expected to

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the right heat

pump for your home

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,

most homes include at least one heat pump,

if not a whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more

convenient than a log burner as you just need

to press a button. But how do you decide

what is best? Choosing the right sized heat

pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort

levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore

important to get professional advice from heat

pump experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it

is important to select the correct size for your

requirements that will handle the job but not

be unnecessarily overpowered.

Secondly, the location of your heat pump

is also extremely important. The cheapest

installation is a back to back where the outdoor

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor

unit however this is not necessarily always

the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

BOW WOW: These pooches

got a ride on the tram at

Ferrymead Heritage Park.

Cr Johanson said the site

would be suited to a dog park.

“There is a shortage of dog exercise

areas in the bay harbour

area. You’ve got the beaches but

there have been restrictions put

on around what time of year

(you can take dogs) and there’s

often stock grazing up at John

Britten Reserve.”

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of

systems and price, so it depends on your

application as to which will be most suitable.

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are

all reliable brands backed up by good technical

after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but

also validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to consider when choosing a

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi

capabilities.

Heating is a major investment in your home

and it is vital to get the right advice.

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,

installation and servicing of all major brands

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as

to which system will suit your application

New and quality used tyres

for most makes & models

This family-run, independent tyre

business in Birmingham Drive specialises

in new and quality second-hand tyres.

The business is owned by husband and

wife Athol and Julie Hurst, with Julie being

the one who runs the day-to-day operation

and fits the tyres for customers, which is

unusual in the male-dominated industry,

she says.

They stock a large selection of new tyres

from a wide range of suppliers to suit your

wheelbarrow, car, van, 4wd or trailer.

“There are very few brands we can’t do,”

Julie says.

“We also have an excellent selection of

quality second-hand 4WD tyres.

Other services JCM Direct offers include

puncture repairs, supply and fitting of

new and second-hand alloy wheels, wheel

alignments, replacement factory steel

rims, rim repairs and lights.

“We also specialise in old rims, from the

1930s to the 1970s, which people purchase

for caravans and old trailers. The modern

rims won’t fit those,” Julie says.

“JCM Direct also do a lot of matching

rims and tyres, so customers don’t have to

buy a complete new set if only one needs

replacing.”

We can create packages to accommodate

all budgets, with finance available via Q

Card or Farmers Card.

JCM Direct is now in a new location,

on the corner of Birmingham Drive and

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

STUFFED APPLE

CRUMBLES

Ingredients

200g Gingernuts

4 Eve apples

100g Butter, preferably unsalted,

at room temperature

Directions

Heat the oven to 180 deg C.

Place the biscuits in a sealable

plastic bag, seal and roll a

wooden rolling pin firmly over

the package to crush the biscuits

finely.

Alternatively crush them in a

food processor.

Cut a thick slice off the top of

the apple and set aside. These

will be the chapeaux — hats.

Using an apple corer or a

teaspoon, dig out the flesh from

the centre of the apple, leaving

a thin edge of apple around the

inside and base.

Discarding any core pieces,

chop the flesh finely.

Mix together the biscuit

crumbs, butter and chopped

apple to make a soft mix. Divide

the mix evenly among the apples,

packing it in firmly. Sit the hats

back on top.

Place the apples on a baking

paper-lined tray or in a shallowsided

ovenproof dish.

Bake for 15-20min or until the

apples have softened. Serve with

cream or hot custard.

CHOCOLATE

Ingredients

4 large Bananas

100g Chocolate buttons

1 Ltr Vanilla ice cream, to serve

½ cup Caramel sauce

1 packet Sliced almonds, to

garnish

Directions

Remove the bananas from

their skin. Cut along one side

of the banana, making sure you

don’t cut all the way through to

the other side.

Poke in the chocolate buttons

along the cut.

Put each banana on to a

sheet of foil and fold the edges

together to seal into a parcel.

Bake on the barbecue for 12min

or until all of the chocolate has

melted.
