Cemetery

for quake

victims

won’t be

renamed

• By Emily O’Connell

A PUSH to have Avonhead Park

Cemetery renamed to reflect its

significance as the final resting

place of earthquake victims has

come to a halt.

The Friends of Avonhead

Cemetery group has been

lobbying to have the name

changed to the Avonhead

Memorial Cemetery.

Four people who died in the

CTV Building collapse and 20

others who lost their lives in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

are buried in the cemetery.

But a city council report has

found the cemetery can’t be

renamed. Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

chairman David Cartwright said

the cemetery doesn’t meet the

criteria.

“What would trigger a site or

location to be named a memorial,

in this particular case, doesn’t

trigger that,” he said.

He said the official memorial for

earthquake victims is on Oxford

Tce.

FOAC chairman Clive Paris

said the group was not surprised

at the response from city council

staff.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

THE FRIENDS of Avonhead

Cemetery spokesman Clive Paris

doesn’t pull any punches (see

page 1) over the decision not to

include the name memorial in the

cemetery’s name.

The issue is whether to add

memorial to take into account the

2011 earthquake victims who are

interned there has been ongoing

for a long time.

But now the city council has

made a decision that adding the

name doesn’t meet required criteria

for cemeteries.

But Clive isn’t impressed: “They

(city council) have always had

a backward looking mentality

when approaching ideas or issues

and tend to go into defence mode

rather than looking at the issue

and responding positively.”

Good to see Tongan league

star Tuimoala Lolohea drop into

Hornby last week (page 4).

They’ll need to be at their best to

beat England this weekend.

Sea level rise could affect insurance

Local

News

Now

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Sarla Donovan

A SHIFT towards evaluating

properties for individual climate

change risk may mean insurance

premiums will rise on coastal

properties.

An updated Tonkin and Taylor

report on coastal hazards released

last week showed close to 25,000

Christchurch houses are at risk of

future coastal flooding and 1000

are at risk from coastal erosion.

In a worst-case climate change

scenario, flooding could affect the

coastal city and Banks Peninsula

properties within the next 50 to

100 years, the report said.

Insurance Council chief

executive Tim Grafton said

climate change was a certainty.

“Sea level will rise and the

frequency of extreme weather

events will increase.”

Mr Grafton said each insurer

would take a different approach to

risk, depending on the frequency

and consequences of flooding.

“With respect to climate

change, the price signals are likely

to be incremental changes over

time, rather than swift and rapid

change. There is therefore time for

a range of adaptation measures

that make economic sense to be

considered which

. . . enable the transfer of risk to

insurance to remain affordable

and accessible.”

Some properties could become

uninsurable if they flooded with

high frequency, Mr Grafton said.

“They become less insurable as it

becomes more certain that they

will flood.”

He said New Zealand was

unusual in offering all-perils

cover house insurance. “In

many other countries, flood is

an optional add-on to house

insurance policies, so flood risk is

separately priced.”

OUTSPOKEN: Christchurch

Coastal Residents United

spokesman Darrell Latham

says climate change is a

national responsibility.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

​Redcliffs resident and Ray

White Ferrymead salesman,

Mark Roberts, said insurance

companies will always try to

mitigate risk.

“At the end of the day, people

love being by the ocean. They will

make decisions (about a property)

based on the statistics they get

and the risk profile.”

Last week’s report is an update

of Tonkin and Taylor’s widelycriticised

2015 report suggesting

18,000 properties were at risk of

flooding and 6000 susceptible to

erosion.

The 2015 report was criticised

as being scientifically flawed,

leading to the updated 2017

version.

Christchurch Coastal Residents

United spokesman Darrell

Latham said climate change was

a national responsibility, not

just the responsibility of coastal

communities or local councils.

“Mitigation and compensation

must be part of the conversation,”

he said.

NO-STOPPING PLANS

The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

has decided to create six

new no-stopping locations.

The restrictions will be on

Gallaghan Close, Bibiana St,

Mustang Ave, Milnebank St,

Rushden Rise and Middlepark

Rd and the Craven St

roundabout. The streets are all

either narrow or have limited

visibility.

. . . AND BUS STOPS

The community board has

also decided to approve four

new bus stops in Wigram.

They will be located on the No

100 bus route. The locations

are Deal St, The Runway,

Corsair Drive and Keene St.

BELGIUM GRANT

A Christchurch Girls’ High

student is off to Belgium for

a year with the help of the

Rotary Club of Avonhead.

Year 13 student Aoife Hyland

will take part in the Rotary

the it will provide Aoife with

$1100 towards the exchange.

She will leave for Belgium on

•From page 1

Other local breaks to feature

include New Brighton, Waikuku

The collection has a broad

coverage of New Zealand surfing

and breaks.

“It’s actually quite unique in the

surfing world as far as surf publications

go,” said Mr Hawke.

“We wanted it to seem like

there was a new adventure over

every page. For this reason, I’ve

included the work of some of

New Zealand’s top surf photographers

to add greater depth and

variety.”

The book has a limited print

League star drops in

• By Emily O’Connell

TONGA’S rock star-like

rugby league show dropped

in on a Hornby pre-school on

Thursday.

Star stand-off Tuimoala

Lolohea was greeted with red,

white and a lot of smiling faces

when he arrived at Barnardos

Hornby Pasifika Early Learning

Centre.

The Tongan’s have taken the

sports world by storm with

their outstanding displays at

the Rugby League World Cup,

which ramped up after the

upset over the Kiwis 28-22.

On Saturday, they take on

England in a semi-final at Mt

Smart Stadium, Auckland,

after a hard-fought 24-22 win

over Lebanon at Christchurch

Stadium (AMI) last weekend.

But last week was all about

spreading the Tongan message.

Hornby Primary pupils and

Hornby High School students

also went along to get a peek at

the Tonga star.

Our pre-Christmas exhibition is once again an allwoman

gathering of multi-media artists. Whimsical

takes on personal themes, each of these artists

serve us their ‘Signature Dish’.

The exhibition runs for three weeks finishing

18th of December, giving plenty of time to wrap a

Christmas gift for someone very special.

Lisa Grennell’s work is whimsical, much like a

child’s imagination. Designed to make the viewer

smile and think of their own childhood,

whilst questioning contemporary society

and its impact on the environment. ‘The

Simple Life’ is inspiration for this new

work.

Blanche Fryer’s work for this exhibition

has been inspired by the anthropomorphic

interpretation of the inner life of fish.

“We hear of horse whisperers, canine

communicators, mammal channelling,

but you never hear of a yarn with a fish, excepting

if there is a hook on the end. It has been really

enjoyable creating these characters and also

playing with a few different glazes.”

Jane Downes pieces ‘Dwell’, a continuation of her

body of work ‘Shelter’. Designed almost completely

for function and the upholding of cultural values,

offering shelter, protection and observation. These

works are also an exploration of form, pattern,

scale and light, extending the work through the

formation of shadows.

Kara Burrowes explains her rationale – “I’m drawn

to the layers and history of the urban environment;

exposed walls, discarded objects. Often it’s the

banal and mundane that sparks an idea, the

concept of transforming something quite ordinary

into something precious and alluring.”

Blanche Fryer’s anthropomorphic interpretation

of the inner life of fish.

Amy Hoedemakers, “I used sketches from walking

down the riverbed and words to begin with or

as reference points. I wanted my work to have

the feeling of looking into another world, of it

stretching on, almost as though you could step into

it but having an abstract quality at the same time.

Predominantly I’m inspired by the natural world,

painted in a mixture of sizes and formats in oils.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Pensioners plead for help

• By Emily O’Connell

REST HOME residents are again

pleading for noisy trucks to be

banned from Lodestar Ave.

A Lady Wigram Retirement

Village resident wrote a letter to

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board which was

discussed last week.

The letter was asking for action

to be taken so they could enjoy

some “peace

and quiet.”

Halswell

Ward city

councillor

Anne

Galloway

(left) asked the

board what

more they could do to support

the progress.

Community board chairman

Mike Mora said they are supporting

the progress by receiving

the letter and referring it to city

council staff for feedback.

Cr Galloway said the Lady

Wigram residents are “very

upset with how the issue has

transpired.”

The Traffic and Parking Bylaw

2017, which would give the city

council the ability to restrict

heavy vehicles on certain roads,

NOISY: A large container truck on Lodestar Ave, Wigram.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

will go to the city council on

Thursday for approval.

If the bylaw is approved, the city

council will then consider placing

a restriction on Lodestar Ave.

When asked again this week

by Southern View whether she

will push for heavy trucks to

be stopped, Cr Galloway would

only say she’s been working with

Wigram MP Megan Woods and

city council staff “to address the

concerns of all the residents who

are impacted.”

“I’ve reassured residents

through emails, phone calls

and visits that I am taking the

concerns seriously and will be

using all tools available to us to

manage these,” she said.

Three weeks ago Cr Galloway

told Southern View she doubted

the new bylaw will be of any use.

“It seems that speed is the issue

and the recommendation is for

police to get more involved in

monitoring this,” Cr Galloway

said.

But then Cr Galloway

tempered her stance, sending

Southern View an email saying

the bylaw can work.

“There definitely is still hope

that it can be used to prevent

heavy trucks along Lodestar.

Staff cannot consider it as an

option until it is passed,” Cr

Galloway said.

Last week Cr Galloway said

she’s thrilled “things are moving

so quickly” and she hopes the

bylaw is passed.

She said the city council’s

Heavy Vehicle Parking in Residential

Area Policy is another

tool which can be used to address

the Lodestar Ave situation.

Lady Wigram Retirement

Village residents said they get

woken up at 4.30am.

Retirement village residents

have been lobbying since April

when they met with Cr Galloway

and Dr Woods asking for a bylaw

to stop trucks being allowed to

drive through Lodestar Ave.

It’s a short cut to work sites in

the area.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Firework ‘could have led to a death’

• By Andrew King

A FIREWORK thrown onto the

roof of a house caused major

damage and could have claimed

lives.

Fire investigator Bruce Irvine

is furious about what happened

and says it is now time for a

public debate over fireworks.

The fire

started in the

guttering of the

Becmead Drive,

Harewood,

property about

10.30pm on

Saturday,

Bruce

Irvine

November 11, and

spread into the

wall space.

The family had just gone to

bed and were still awake, said Mr

Irvine.

About 10min later, the

kitchen smoke alarm activated

and the family got out of bed.

The fire was well involved and

had been spread by a ventilation

system in the roof space, he

said.

The father went to the

bathroom and burnt his feet on

debris that had fallen through

the ceiling, he said.

Detectives are investigating.

Mr Irvine said the fire was

so reckless that if someone had

died, he would have expected a

murder charge to be laid.

“This family’s lives have

been destroyed for the next six

months because of someone’s

thoughtless and idiotic act. It has

to stop,” fire risk management

officer Bruce Irvine said.

“It was a deliberate act

that could have led to a

death.”

Mr Irvine said it was timely

to now start the debate on

fireworks.

“We want to start the

conversation right here, right

now. There have been far too

many incidents. And we know

it is going to happen, that is the

frustrating thing about it.

These fires are avoidable,” he

said.

SILENT: The fire was burning

for at least 10min in the ceiling

space before it set off a

smoke detector in the kitchen.

He said he wants the public

to start the discussion about

whether fireworks should be

available for general sale or

should be limited to organised

events only.

“Any feedback we get on this

from the public will be helpful.

That way we can make a

strong case for getting rid of

them,” he said.

He said it was not just

the fire, although they were

“extremely frustrating”, but the

distress caused to animals and

surrounding residents with the

constant firework use well after

the date they are supposed to be

set off.

“They are supposed to

be used for a celebration on

November 5, a safe time to use

them.

Not weeks and weeks after

when everything is drying out,”

he said.

Cemetery for quake victims will not be renamed

•From page 1

“They have always had a

backwards looking mentality

when approaching ideas or issues

and tend to go into defence

mode, rather than looking at the

issue and responding positively,”

he said.

The four people who lost their

lives in the CTV Building and

could not be identified after

the quake were Shawn Lucas,

of Christchurch, Elsa Torres

De Frood, of Peru, Rhea Mae

Sumalpong, of the Philippines,

and Veleri Volnov, a

Russian-born New Zealand

resident.

The cemetery features

a large circular memorial

with a stone dedication in

the centre.

The central feature of

the memorial includes

six plaques with text in

English, Filipino, Maori,

Russian, Spanish and braille.

In a report to the community

board, city council senior

network planner parks

Eric Banks addressed

some reasons why

the proposed name of

Avonhead Memorial

Cemetery won’t work.

He said no

submissions requesting

a name change were

received during the draft

Cemeteries Master Plan

consultation process.

Mr Banks also said there could

David

Cartwright

be more confusion if multiple

cemeteries had “memorial” in the

name.

Mr Paris said the group felt

the issue had not been resolved

and it needed to go back to the

community board.

“The city now has a legacy

to provide a safe haven for the

family members and friends left

behind here forever,” he said.

Mr Cartwright said the city

council report on the renaming

took a disappointing amount of

time.

“What you would think would

be a relatively straight forward

request for information . . . has

taken a little longer than we

would have hoped for an answer,”

he said.

Mr Cartwright said four or

five new signs will be placed near

the cemetery to help loved ones

locate it.

He also said there will be some

maintenance done to clean up the

cemetery.

Governors Bay link with Santa movie

• By Sarla Donovan

GOVERNORS BAY film

director Tony Simpson has just

finished making the world’s first

Kiwi family Christmas movie.

Kiwi Christmas has a special

screening for friends and family

at Hollywood Cinema in Sumner

this Sunday before opening nationwide

on November 30.

The movie tells the story of

how Santa, frustrated by the

materialism of Christmas, goes

‘awol’ from the North Pole and

crash lands at a camp ground

in New Zealand where he is

adopted by a camping family.

Meanwhile, the coast guard

think an illegal alien has come in

to the country so they go under

cover at the camp.

The family has to save Santa

from the coast guard and then

convince him to go back to the

North Pole and complete his

duties.

Co-written with Andy Gunn

(brother of Jason Gunn) Mr

Simpson said the idea came

during one of his own family’s

Christmas camping trips to Totaranui

in the Abel Tasman National

Park, where his children

wondered if Santa would be able

to find them at the camp ground.

Although it is not autobiographical,

Mr Simpson said the

film was quintessentially Kiwi,

unlike most other Christmas

movies which were set in the

Northern Hemisphere.

“Kiwi Christmas is our very

own family Christmas film,” Mr

Simpson told the Southern View.

It has taken four years to make,

which was a “fairly quick turnaround”

for a feature film, he said.

Both Mr Simpson and his editor

Scott Flyger live in Governors

Bay, which you might think

would be a bit far from the filmmaking

action.

But he said the first couple of

years were taken up with getting

the script written and the finance

and distribution organised.

“You can live pretty much

anywhere because you can do so

much of that over the internet. I

was away for about three months

making the film in Auckland.

What was good this time was

that Scott happened to live in the

Bay and the sound editor Chris

Sinclair has a studio in Christchurch.

So I didn’t have to travel to

do post production. “

Most of the cast and crew lived

in Auckland so filming took

place just north of Orewa Beach,

with funding from the New Zealand

Film Commission.

Mr Simpson said he wanted to

make a movie that would appeal

to families around the world,

and give kiwis the chance to see

themselves on the big screen.

“We’ll finally have something

personal to watch at Christmas

time and create a new family

tradition with something that

reflects the magic of that time of

year, Kiwi-style!”

It’s the second film Mr Simpson

has made with Mr Gunn.

The two worked together on

2012s Kiwi Flyer, inspired by

the Nelson Trolley Derby which

was an institution in the Nelson

community where Mr Simpson

grew up.

He shifted to Governors Bay

with his wife Helen nine years

ago, just after their third child

was born.

“It’s a lovely community and

I particularly like the dramatic

End the stigma around epilepsy

November

is Epilepsy

Awareness

Month,

Coastal-

Burwood

Ward city

councillor

Glenn Livingstone speaks

about his experience with

the condition

I was first diagnosed with

epilepsy at 19.

I’m now 54 and have not let the

condition hold me back, in fact

I’ve used it as a springboard to set

goals and achieve them.

Leading up to the diagnosis,

I could not work out why I was

having uncontrollable twitches

when falling asleep.

At a 1983 Youth Easter Camp

I had a seizure, where I blacked

out and was taken to hospital

with concussion and a suspected

broken nose.

My worried parents waited

while an electroencephalogram

revealed the spikes of the ‘extra’

electricity in my brain.

Following this, I was diagnosed

with myoclonic epilepsy. I was

put on medication, which I’ve remained

on since, in order to keep

the epilepsy under control.

One of the consequences of this

newly-acquired condition was

not being able to drive for two

years.

It also meant cycling with a

helmet. Cycling wearing a yellow

helmet in Palmerston North in

1983 was a novel experience for

everyone, both me and the locals.

“Hey skid-lid”, or “moon-head”

were all part of the experience of

passing motorists in Palmy.

Shortly after I was diagnosed

and told someone about it, they

said: “Oh, you’re an epileptic.”

It was that labelling that was to

become the impetus for me to set

goals and pursue them.

In February, I will be taking

part in my seventh Coast to

Coast event with MP Poto Williams.

If you see someone having a

seizure and lying on the ground,

ensure that they do not come

into contact with any furniture

if inside and that they can’t hurt

themselves.

Once the seizure is finished,

depending on the severity of it,

check that they’re able to breathe

without any obstructions in their

mouth.

They will probably be able

to talk to you but may be a bit

groggy. In some cases they may

need medical attention but every

person and every case is different.

Those of us with epilepsy, our

family and friends, want to be

accepted. We should all work to

put an end to the stigma around

it.

Those of us with epilepsy have

extra electricity in our brains!

So employ us, be cool with us

and above all, give us a chance.

FLAME FILES

• By Mark Thomas – fire risk

management officer

JUST AFTER Guy Fawkes

weekend, I left town for a week.

On my return, I found heaps

of vegetation fires, grass, bushes

and trees had been attended.

While that’s a sign of the time

of year, it’s also disappointing

to see how many of them were

the result of fireworks.

The worst incident occurred

on November 11 in Harewood,

where a firework thrown on to

the roof of a house set the roof

on fire.

A smoke alarm alerted the

occupants but one was still

burnt while escaping.

If found, the idiot responsible

might well face a charge of

arson. Because recklessness is

now included in the actions

that might constitute the crime.

And you don’t get much more

reckless than this.

Going through the week’s fire

calls, I almost finished without

seeing a single kitchen cooking

fire, which is almost unheard

of.

Until I got to Wednesday

Celebrate the festive season with

Thai flavours and a group discount

The popular Thai restaurant, Green Chilli

in Ferry Road Woolston, is offering a 10 per

cent discount for groups of seven or more

booking in for their Christmas parties in

the evening.

The attractive, 55-seat restaurant is

the ideal venue for festive celebrations

with workmates, or family and friends.

The menu features

a wide selection

of authentic Thai

dishes, including

their famous Pad

Thai, which is the

most popular item

with diners.

The chicken satay

with four sticks of

large, juicy chicken

pieces is another very

popular dish, and

great value at only

$10. Curry puffs,

spring rolls and fish

cakes are among the

tasty starters, while

the wide selection of

main dishes includes green, red and yellow

curries, massaman curry, spicy chicken

lemongrass and Thai-style salads. To ensure

all taste preferences are catered for, the chef

prepares the dishes in degrees of spiciness

– mild, medium, Kiwi hot and Thai hot,

according to what is requested.

Students and seniors are also offered a

10 per cent discount, which is available at

lunchtime and in the evenings. There is

also a Wednesday special – three courses

for $22.

Green Chilli has been a favourite of

Christchurch’s Thai food lovers for more

than 20 years. Originally a takeaway

outlet located in the Woolston shopping

centre, Green Chilli became a fully-fledged

restaurant when it moved further along

Ferry Road almost four years ago. Situated

at 596 Ferry Rd (next to the Three Boys

brewery), the family-run business, Green

Chilli still has the same chef, too.

Fully licensed, the restaurant is open

from 11-30am-2pm for lunch and from

5pm till late for dinner, seven days a week.

Off-street parking is available and there is

plenty of on-street parking as well.

So, make your Christmas party booking

soon, phone 381 2855 or 384 9993, and

celebrate the festive season with delicious

Thai flavours.

Green Chilli also has takeaways, and

offers a free delivery service – minimum

order $45, within the local area. For over

two kilometres away there is a $5 delivery

charge. They will be open right through the

Christmas and New Year holidays, except

for Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

Twitter’s quake research role

Fire rages, homes at risk

analysing

emotional

reactions

• By Bridget Rutherford

EARTHQUAKE-related Twitter

posts are being analysed to

provide a new way of gauging

how people are coping, and

whether they need more support.

Lincoln University PhD student

Prerita Gupta is developing

a recognition algorithm to identify

emotions based on keywords

in tweets from 2010-2016.

So far, she has collected more

than 250,000 tweets as part of

the research, which is expected

to take up to two years.

The Complex Systems, Big

Data and Informatics Initiative

student said people experiencing

upheavals often turned to social

media to express their feelings,

especially Twitter.

She decided to research how

people reacted emotionally online

when earthquakes struck.

“I thought it would be interesting

to know which emotions they

have gone through and to know

the trend of emotions when they

feel minor or major disasters.”

The algorithm gauges intense

reactions from people, and how

they are coping. An example is

a tweet such as “Sharp lil jolt felt

in this morning!!!. Forgot how

much I hate them.’’

Ms Gupta said the tool could

be used by psychologists as a

new way of gauging emotional

states. She said it could be used

as a decision-making tool to

understand the collective state of

a group affected, and to provide

them better support or assistance.

The data had geographical

locations, so they could see what

area was impacted the most, she

said.

“This information is very

useful for health providers in

examining the relationship

between emotions and the use

of anti-depressant medicines,

helpful for the Government to

plan which affected area needs

the maximum health benefit and

for social welfare departments to

understand the level of support

they should provide to the

affected party.”

Ms Gupta said traditional

approaches such as interviews or

surveys may not be the best way

to collect data, as it reminded

people of the experience and

could be traumatising.

Analysing Twitter posts was

non-intrusive, she said.

The Ministry of Health is also

investigating whether Facebook

or Twitter posts about illnesses

or symptoms could be tracked

to see if there is a trend in a

particular area.

It was also looking at whether

school absentees, employee

sick leave, over-the-counter

pharmacy sales, tissue sales or

Healthline calls could be utilised

in preventing the spread of

illnesses.

Dilo Oil – The Remarkable

Skin Rejuvenator

Until Rachel

Hunter’s popular

TV series “TOUR

OF BEAUTY” Dilo

Oil was relatively

unknown, being one

of the best-kept secrets

of the Pacific Islands. It

may however be the number

one natural beauty oil available

as it possesses powerful natural skin

regeneration and healing properties.

According to ethnobotanist Chris

Kilham, Dilo (pronounced dee-lo)

Oil is a powerful skin regenerator as

it is one of the most effective agents

in promoting the regeneration and

formation of new tissue, thereby

accelerating wound healing and

the growth of healthy skin. Dilo

Oil is super-absorbing and can

penetrate all three layers of the

skin, offering exceptional cell

hydration and regeneration.

As well as this, Dilo Oil has

potent anti-inflammatory,

antimicrobial, antifungal and

antioxidant properties.

Traditionally, Dilo Oil is used to keep the

skin young and youthful and for just about

any skin complaint. Some of the conditions

for which it is considered helpful include

abrasions, cuts and cracks, acne and

acne scars, pimples, blemishes, stretch

marks, wrinkles, blisters, burns (including

chemical and radiation), diabetic sores,

rashes, shaving irritation, dry or scaly skin,

incredible results.

Many beauty and skincare products

on the market today contain unnatural

ingredients that can be toxic and may

even contribute to disease. Generally

the benefits are exaggerated

and often only temporary or

camouflage. Marshall’s Dilo Oil is

100% pure and certified organic.

It has been cold-pressed from the

Dilo nut and contains absolutely

no additives. Polynesians and

Southeast Asians have revered

Dilo Oil for centuries believing it

to be a sacred gift of nature and

the Gods. Dilo oil stimulates

and supports the skins natural

healing process through the growth of new

healthy skin tissue. I personally believe

it is a remarkable product and highly

recommend it to everyone. A 50ml bottle is

$19.90 and 100ml only $29.90.

NATURAL HEALING & BEAUTY OIL

As seen on Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty

Revered for centuries by Polynesians & Southeast Asians for its remarkable

skin anti-aging & healing properties, Dilo oil comes from the nut of the sacred

Dilo tree, “the tree of a thousand virtues”. Dilo oil is often called the beauty oil

as it can penetrate all three layers of the skin offering exceptional cell hydration

& regeneration. It has a unique ability to stimulate the growth of healthy skin

cells & this gives it powerful anti-aging & healing properties that can help

reduce lines, blemishes, scars & damage to the skin. It also possesses

anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal & antioxidant properties.

Dilo Oil Supports

• Anti-aging & skin regeneration, helps reduce lines, blemishes, scars &

Centuries old folk remedy

supports good health!

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an

array of powerful health benefits. It is none

other than the popular apple cider vinegar

or ACV. Since the time of Hippocrates –

the “Father of Medicine” – ACV has been

renowned for its curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS and

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis

reports how he found that Vermonters

who regularly consumed ACV and Honey

had excellent health with many putting in

a vigorous day’s work on the farm even

when well into their eighties.

He also noted the effects of

ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients

reporting almost total relief

after taking a course of the

mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised

that the acid and potassium

in cider vinegar counteracted

calcium deposits and helped

the body control calcium use.

He also noted that Vermonters

who consumed ACV and H

around meal time had excellent blood

pressure and circulation. The reason he

found was that protein foods thickened the

blood and vinegar thinned it. As the blood

thickens it cannot pass as easily and quickly

through the blood vessels and capillaries.

This poor blood flow would reduce cellular

health by limiting nutrients to the cells as

well as waste elimination from the cells.

To prevent cell damage the body naturally

increases blood pressure but this puts

more stress on the blood vessels, organs

ARE YOU READY

TO DOWNSIZE?

Paying rates for a house that’s

too big? Paying maintenance and

heating costs for space you don’t use?

and heart. Having ACV and H with meals

will help prevent protein raising the blood

pressure. It also contributes to a feeling

of greater well-being because the thinner

blood circulates quickly and more easily

through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found

regular consumption of CV and H to be

an excellent health tonic with numerous

health attributes.

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all

the goodness of the apple in a form that is

readily accepted by the body. Good health

starts with good digestion

and assimilation of nutrients.

ACV taken before food will

stimulate and promote healthy

digestion and assimilation of

vital nutrients for good health.

A well-functioning digestive

system helps prevent disease

by neutralising any toxic

substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not

all ACV is produced in the

traditional way and results are

likely to prove disappointing with these

other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV and ACV

with 20% Manuka Honey is produced in

Canterbury from Organic whole apples in

the traditional way. It is double strength so

you can use less.

While the Nurse Maude Hospice Shops are

a well-known feature on the Christchurch

retail scene, no quite so well-known is its

equally successful counterpart, Maudes on

Trade Me.

Maudes on Trade Me sells everything

from antiques to sporting and household

items and is open 24 hours a day, seven

days a week with the proceeds of every

item supporting hours of care in the Nurse

Maude Hospice.

With up to 400 items a week being listed

and sold Maudes on Trade Me is totally

dependent on a steady stream of donated

goods.

So if it’s something you no longer want or

need the chances are it can raise money

for the Nurse Maude Hospice.

There has always been a strong

relationship between the

community and the Nurse

Maude Hospice.

That relationship is what makes

it possible for patients and their

families to be able to receive

care and support free of charge

at the Nurse Maude Hospice so

they can focus on what matters

rather than having to worry

about how they’re going to pay

for that care.

While smaller pieces can be

left for Maudes on Trade Me

at any of the Nurse Maude Hospice Shops

it is sometimes possible for larger or bulk

items to be picked up.

Just give them a call on 375 4643 or

email them at trademe.volunteers@

nursemaude.org.nz and they can let you

know if and when they can pick them up.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Love your dentures

Is it time to swap your generic denture appearance

for a beautiful, natural looking smile?

Internationally renowned dental

technician Richard Greenlees,

PGDipCDTech (University of Otago) of

Lovebite is the person to call.

His special point of difference is

rebuilding what he calls the Oral

Architecture, the structure and shape of

a patient’s face that is often lost following

years of wearing dentures.

Lovebite dentures address problems

that can arise due to years of the patient

wearing incorrectly fitting or poorly

functioning dentures, such as poor

occlusion (the way the teeth come

together), aesthetics, function and

hygiene.

An intricate knowledge and

understanding of facial features allows

Richard to return facial tissues back to the

correct position, reform lips, and restore

beauty and confidence.

Richard provides a friendly, discreet

service and personally guides his patients

through the transformation process to

create teeth with small nuances in the

fabrication, colour and shape.

Carmen, a recent patient said in a

thank you letter to Richard, “I highly

recommend your craftsmanship to anyone

wanting a natural looking smile. Because

you do your work in front of your client,

one is able to see how meticulous and

dedicated you are to ending up with a top

class result. My dentures are amazing.

They look like one’s own natural teeth. So

much time, effort and energy went into

the end result. Simply the best.”

Richard’s patients have varying needs,

from full denture replacement, to first

time immediate dentures, implant

supported dentures and metal partial

dentures.

Since he started making teeth in

1980 Richard has travelled extensively,

accumulating vast knowledge through

training and working in Japan, and

running his own practice in the

prestigious Harley Street, London for 15

years. He continues to teach his world

leading techniques globally.

Richard also creates porcelain crowns

and veneers, working with like-minded

dental professionals.

A beautiful new Lovebite smile

resembles nature and reflects the patient’s

character. It boosts confidence and helps

patients to look and feel years younger.

To learn more and to view a gallery

of stunning Lovebite dentures, visit

lovebite.com.

BEFORE

AFTER

These before and after photographs

perfectly highlight the facial

rejuvenation that can be achieved

with a Lovebite denture (right).

The patient’s facial structure and

shape have been restored, with her

beautiful new smile transforming

the way she looks and feels.

STUNNING: A beautiful new denture for

a young female patient

These stunning lovebite full upper and

lower dentures have been expertly crafted by

internationally-recognised dental technician

Richard Greenlees at his Christchurch studio.

The combination of Richard’s skill, experience

(including 15 years in London’s prestigious

Harley Street) knowledge and revolutionary

techniques allow him to create beautiful

bespoke false teeth that truly resemble those

in nature and reflect each patient’s individuality

and unique character.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

STRAWBERRY AND

MARSHMALLOW PARFAIT

Ingredients

½ cup Marshmallows, small

350g Sugar

500g Strawberries, hulled

6 Eggs, 4 yolks, 2 whole

2 cups Cream, thick

500g Strawberries, fresh, for

garnish

Directions

To prepare the tin, line a narrow

terrine mould about 30cm

x 10cm with plastic wrap. Set

some of the marshmallows along

the bottom with some strawberry

slices.

Place the strawberries in a

saucepan with half the sugar.

Bring to a gentle simmer over a

low heat. The juices will come

out, so there is no need to add

water. Simmer for no more

than 2min, then remove from

the heat and mash or purée the

mixture.

Return it to the pan and set

aside. Use an electric beater to

whisk the egg yolks and whole

eggs with the remaining sugar

until thick and mousse-like.

Return the strawberry and sugar

mixture to the heat and bring to

a simmer. With the beater still

running, tip this hot mixture

into the eggs and continue

whisking until it is really thick

and well incorporated. The hot

sugar and strawberries “cook”

the egg yolk, so it is not raw.

Whip the cream until it reaches

soft peaks, then fold it gently

through. Add the remaining

marshmallows to the mixture.

Spoon it into the prepared tin.

Cover with plastic wrap and

freeze for at least 24 hours. To

serve, cut the parfait into slices,

surround with sliced strawberries

and place in a cup.

HOW TO ROAST THE

PERFECT WHOLE LEG OF

LAMB

Whole leg of lamb

1-2 tbsp oil

Rock salt

Freshly ground black pepper

4-5 sprigs fresh rosemary

Take the lamb out of the fridge

30min before cooking to allow

it to come to room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 170 deg C.

Place a wire rack in a roasting

tray, place the lamb on the rack

and brush the meat with the oil

and then season with the rock

salt and freshly ground black

pepper.

Rub the lamb with the rosemary

sprigs leaving them in the

roasting dish. Place the meat into

the oven and roast at 160 deg C,

allowing 30min per 500g.

To test if the meat is cooked,

use a skewer to pierce the leg at

the thickest part, going through

to the bone. If the juices are clear,

the lamb is cooked.

Remove the lamb from the

oven, cover the meat with some

aluminum foil and then set the

lamb aside to rest, for approximately

15-20min. Carve the meat

and serve with your favourite

vegetables and plenty of gravy.

REAL ESTATE

Inspired contemporary living

14A Saracen Avenue, Northwood

Auction: Thursday, 30 November 2017 Unless Sold Prior

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 1 living room | 2 car-garage | 4 off-street parks | Property ID: PI48973

Occupying a setting of tranquility, this

cleverly designed townhouse on a Freehold

Title, offers contemporary living without

compromise. With an outlook over Glen

Oaks Reserve, the Styx Mill Conservation

Reserve, and distant mountains beyond,

inspired views will greet you each morning,

yet supermarket, cafés and shops are within

close proximity.

In the tiled entrance, large windows bathe

the space in natural light and offer enticing

glimpses through to the internal courtyard.

A generously proportioned open-plan

living and dining room flows to outdoor

living on two sides: the internal courtyard,

a wonderfully sheltered and intimate space

for relaxing and entertaining throughout

the day and into the evening, and a sundrenched

terrace that invites you to enjoy

the leafy surrounds. Adjoining the living

space, a well-appointed kitchen includes an

island bench, pantry, ceramic cooktop and

90 cm entertainer’s oven. Sleek engineered

stone benches and boxed ceilings add a

touch of understated elegance.

Upstairs, the master suite is a luxurious

sanctuary, with sliders opening to your

own private balcony - and those sensational

views - plus a WIR and chic tiled en suite.

Two more airy and inviting bedrooms

(one double, one single) both have built-in

wardrobes and share a tiled family bathroom

filled with light thanks to two rain-sensing

skylights. A downstairs powder room

caters to guests, while a separate laundry

and double internal-access garage ensure

the practicality of this very special home.

The 331 sqm grounds are fully fenced and

neatly landscaped with easy-care plantings,

ensuring maximum enjoyment with the

minimum of maintenance. A gate offers

direct access to the reserve and walking

trails beyond.

The owners have committed to building

in the country and must sell their muchloved

home, allowing you the opportunity

to secure an exceptional standard of living

in an inspiring location.
