DO-GOOD: Local hero and baker Brian Cate also delivers food to struggling families.

• By Julia Evans

BAKER BRIAN Cate starts

work at 1am.

But when his shift is over at

Sydenham Bakery by 10am, Mr

Cate doesn’t always head home

to bed. For the last 16 years,

every Tuesday and Thursday

he has delivered food parcels to

families from Burnside to Belfast

and every suburb in between.

Mr Cate has spent nearly 6000

hours volunteering through

the Papanui Baptist Church, in

conjunction with 0800 Hungry,

delivering food to more than

11,000 families and individuals

in the north-west.

Without Mr Cate at least

14 local families would be

ONE OF the last “gentleman’s

estates” in the city has been given a

new lease of life.

A heritage incentive grant of

$135,979 for Opawa’s Cardowan

estate was approved by the city

council.

The property at 64 Opawa Rd

was built in the 1860s at a time

when the suburb was a desirable

residential area and land was being

subdivided into gentlemen’s estates

for professional men.

But Cardowan was badly damaged

in the earthquakes and subsequently

sold on an as is, where

is basis to TT Properties Ltd,

which want to repair and restore

the home and rejuvenate its large

gardens.

TT Properties Ltd director Tangi

Karati applied to the council for a

heritage grant to help meet the cost

of the work, which is estimated at

close to $300,000.

The $135,979 grant is subject

to a 20-year limited conservation

covenant being placed on the

property.

TOP MARKS to Brian Cate, the Sydenham

Bakery baker on our front page today.

Brian is one of these people who work

odd hours – most bakers do.

His shift starts at 1am and he works

through until 9 or 10am and then his after work time starts.

That includes charity work; delivering food parcels to families

through a programme at his church.

And then it’s off home and he’ll be in the sack by around 5pm

to get enough sleep to start his work day all over again at 1am.

For his charity work, Brent has received a Kiwibank Local

Hero Award, alongside a number of other Cantabrians.

The Local Hero Awards are the real deal. Well deserved Brian.

Lanes for coastal pathway

• By Sarla Donovan

LANES WILL be marked to

separate cyclists and pedestrians

on the Christchurch Coastal

Pathway.

The measures are needed, the

Coastal Pathway Group said,

as the path was attracting an

increasing number of cyclists -

peaking around 5pm

Chairman Scott Babington

said outside that time, there were

currently about 100 walkers and

cyclists a day passing through

Scott Park, “ which is the area

most affected.”

He said on the whole, the two

groups shared the pathway well,

but it made sense to provide

markings and signs informing

users it was a shared space.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency doesn’t impose a speed

limit on shared pathways, but

Mr Babington said they may

need to consider introducing

one.

“Especially with the advent

of electric bikes which may

use the pathway and are often

very powerful and used by

inexperienced cyclists.”

Shared paths are for “slower

more relaxed travel,” according

to the NZTA website.

“On a shared path you

should put your e-bike in a

low power setting and cycle at

a speed consistent with other

users so that it does not put

others at risk or make them feel

uncomfortable when you pass.”

CPG is working on a signage

plan at the moment, which

would be based on the one at

Hagley Park.

“We have other measures

(planned) such as different

surfaces on the pathway to make

the point to users that this is a

shared pathway and if they want

to cycle fast then there are the

on-road cycle lanes to use.”

Mr Babington said there

was standard shared pathway

signage already but it was “very

ugly and visually obtrusive and I

think completely ineffective. So

we are working with the council

on better, more appropriate

options.”

CPG committee member

Janine Banbury said she was

working with a designer to

create pavement graphics and

expected to have them finished

by Christmas.

Redcliffs Residents

Association secretary Pat

McIntosh said they were in full

support of putting better signage

in place.

Veterinary practice

Christmas tips to keep

your pets safe over the

festive season

‘Tis the season to be jolly! In the spirit of the

coming festive season the staff at McMaster

and Heap Veterinary Practice wish to give

you some helpful tips on how to keep your

pets safe and happy over this busy time.

Festive foods:

Many festive foods can be harmful and

toxic to cats & dogs – here are some of

the major ones that pop up every year at

Christmas time!

Grapes and Raisins - Some types of

grapes and raisins have been shown to

cause kidney failure in dogs when eaten

in toxic quantities. So think before offering

your pet some tasty Christmas cake or

yummy ‘treats’ off the fruit platers.

Onions - Pieces of raw onion, onion

powder, or even cooked onion can cause

damage to red blood cells, which could

result in hemolytic anemia.

Garlic - fresh and powdered forms of garlic

are more potent than onions. These also

cause damage to red blood cells. Cats are

much more sensitive as they have more

fragile red blood cells.

Xylitol - Xylitol is a sugar alternative that

is used in many commercial ‘sugar-free’

candies, gum, and other food items.

Xylitol has been shown to cause severe

hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and liver

damage in dogs and can be fatal. Xylitol

keeps popping up in unexpected places –

the newest one is peanut butter, so be sure

to read the label carefully.

Macadamia Nuts - dangerous to dogs

when eaten can result in weakness,

depression, vomiting, incoordination, and

tremors. In most cases, dogs developed

clinical signs within the first twelve hours

after eating the macadamia nuts.

Chocolate - Contains Theobromine and

caffeine which can cause increased heart

rate, tremors, and excitation, depending

on the type and the quantity ingested

potentially death when ingested at a toxic

dose. Other effects seen with chocolate

overdose are vomiting, diarrhea, increased

thirst, increased urination, and lethargy.

Dark chocolate is the most serious as it

contains the most theobromine, then milk

chocolate, while white chocolate doesn’t

contain any, but still not healthy for your

dog to have.

Cooked bones – These easily splinter

and the bone shards can cause choking or

get stuck in your dog’s gums or stomach

resulting in emergency surgery. Discourage

your dog from foraging in your bins and try

to secure all of the lids.

Christmas Decorations

Christmas decorations are not for pets to

play with.

• Keep your pet away from plants, many of

which are poisonous, especially lilies which

are extremely toxic for cats and results in

acute kidney failure.

• Keep electrical wires and batteries out of

your pets reach. Chewing electrical cables

can cause electric shock or burns to the

mouth.

• Be careful if you are using tinsel on your

tree. If eaten, the tinsel can block your pets

intestines – we saw several of these last

Christmas!

Don’t forget about your RABBITS

Flystrike is a serious condition in rabbits.

It occurs mostly in the summer months

and we see a lot of cases over the holiday

season as people get really busy and forget

to regularly check on their pets.

Flystrike is extremely distressing and it is

also potentially fatal. It is caused by flies that

are attracted to damp fur, urine, faeces and

the odour of the rabbit’s scent. The flies

will land on the rabbit normally around the

rabbits rear end and lay their eggs. Within

a very short time of 2 hours the eggs will

hatch into maggots which start to feed on

the rabbits skin. This process happens very

quickly and is not always caught in time.

Check your rabbit twice a day and if you

find a maggot on your rabbit take it to us

immediately.

Cate with his local hero award.

Baker takes local hero award

•From page 1

“I started through my

church, other people were

doing it so I joined in,” Mr

Cate said.

He said it was nice to

be acknowledged but

preferred to keep a low

profile and get on with

helping the people he had

made a connection with

over the years.

He said he would carry

on helping them for the

foreseeable future.

”But you’ve got to have

the right heart,” he said.

Mr Cate was one of four

recipients of the local hero

award from the northwest.

Others included Cilla

Glasson, of Merivale, who

also volunteers for 0800

Hungry, delivering food

and often gifting toys

and clothes to struggling

families every Thursday.

Bryndwr’s Alan Dickson

won an award after

Kerbside public

holiday collection

volunteering at

0800 Hungry for eight

years.

Gary Linford Watts,

of Northcote, received

an award as the project

manager of SigJaws

Trust, which supports

the disadvantaged and

disabled.

Mr Linford Watts has

also been a volunteer

fireman and is president of

the Christchurch Savage

Club.

Starting this Christmas, you will notice a change with

your kerbside collection on certain public holidays.

Wheelie bins will now be collected a day after their

usual collection day.

MON TUE WED THU FRI SAT

• Monday collections will be picked up on Tuesday

• Tuesday collections will be picked up on Wednesday

• Wednesday collections will be picked up on Thursday

• Thursday collections will be picked up on Friday

• Friday collections will be picked up on Saturday

These changes will only affect Christmas Day, New Years Day,

Easter Good Friday and ANZAC Day, for all other holidays

collection will continue as normal.

Thanks to everyone who gave feedback on this through our survey.

Please ensure wheelie bins are placed at the kerbside by 6am

on collection day.

New fundraiser for historic jetty

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Sarla Donovan

A NEW fundraising appeal to

help save the historic Governors

Bay jetty has been launched this

week.

The ‘sponsor a plank’ initiative

aims to raise $750,000, which together

with funds already raised

by the Jetty Restoration Trust

and committed

by the city

council, will

bring the total

to around $1.35

million.

People,

families, or

businesses who

donate $500

Louisa Eades

or more will be recognised as

“Plank Sponsors”, with a plaque

engraved with their name or

short message on a plank on the

new Jetty.

Trust secretary Louisa Eades

has also written a piece for the

New Zealand Women’s Weekly

about how the jetty was rescued

and the journey so far towards

restoration.

Her story will be published

early next year.

She’s hoping the publicity

will broaden the appeal beyond

Christchurch.

The jetty has been a feature

of the bay since 1874 and is an

important part of Canterbury

history.

Before the road over Dyers

Pass made the bay accessible

by vehicle, twice-daily steam

launches ran from Lyttelton to

Governors Bay.

These boats dropped passengers

off on the Jetty to spend

the day picnicking or visiting the

“pleasure gardens” at the Ocean

View Hotel (now Governors Bay

Hotel.)

“I just can’t imagine it not

being there,” said Ms Eades. “It’s

like the Cathedral in the square

or the Esplanade in Sumner.

It’s just part of the bay, and an

important historical feature.”

At just under 300 metres long,

the jetty is the same length as the

New Brighton pier, but low to the

water and timber-made.

“It’s an amazing place to walk

along or boat to,” said trust

chairman Simon Mortlock.

The city council last year

agreed to temporarily sell ownership

for $1 to the Governors Bay

Jetty Restoration Trust who will

repair it before returning it back

to the city council.

The repair is expected to cost

up to $3 million.

Halswell skate parks

Historic cafe gets

new lease of life

•From page 1

It was originally home to David

McKay, an immigration officer

with the Canterbury Provincial

Government who also administered

the Charitable Aid Fund.

Mr McKay defaulted on the

mortgage repayments on the

house after he was charged with

embezzlement, lost his job and his

wife left him.

The house was bought by

Georgiana Thomson, the widow

of accountant William Thomson,

who was a captain with the

Canterbury Yeomanry Calvary,

Provincial Auditor and Official

Assignee at the time of his death

in 1866.

She named the two-storey

weatherboard house Cardowan

after a suburb in Glasgow.

When Georgiana Thompson

died she passed the house to

her son, John. He had arrived in

Canterbury as a child with his

parents and spent his early years

working on sheep stations before

taking up his father’s profession.

In his retirement John Thomson

took up walking long distances

on the Port Hills and in 1931 he

gifted 63 acres of land on the Port

Hills (now known as Thomson

Park) to the public.

THE TWO proposed Halswell

skate parks are one step closer

with the deadline for tender

applications closing yesterday.

After three years of planning,

the Halswell Domain and

Knights Stream skate parks

are expected to be ready by late

April, instead of January as

initially planned.

City council head of parks

Brent Smith said after the

resource consents were lodged,

the skate parks went out for

tender on November 16.

The consent process took

longer than expected and, as

a result, construction of both

parks has been delayed.

Halswell Residents Association

secretary David Hawke

said the skate parks are fantastic

and they will have a good impact

on the community.

“If you look at one of the

things the Halswell Hub is doing,

it’s got a different type of

outreach I suppose, for young

people in our community and

the skate parks fit into that bigger

picture,” he said.

Mr Hawke said parents are

currently having to drive their

children to Prebbleton to skate.

“You see people doing what

they’re not supposed to be

doing, which is sort of bounce

their scooters and skateboards

about in the supermarket

carparks and so on,” he said.

The city council won’t know

if both sites will be managed

together until a contractor has

been selected. Mr Smith said

the city council is intending on

choosing a contractor before

Christmas.

He said construction on both

skate parks should start at the

beginning of February, with

landscaping to be completed in

May.

PROGRESS: The

Halswell Domain

skate park (pictured)

and the Knights

Stream skate

park are both on

their way to being

built, with tender

applications closing

yesterday. ​

Principal’s Report

Warm greetings to

the Linwood College

community. Kia ora

koutou. Talofa lava.

Kia orana. Malo e

lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa

Kumusta.

Linwood College

enjoys celebrating

student success in all its forms so our

congratulations to the prizewinners

highlighted on this page. I would like to also

congratulate all Junior students who were

awarded prizes at the 2017 Junior Prize Giving

ceremony held on 11th December.

Our community views education as

the wellbeing of the whole person. All

developmentally positive experiences enrich

our students’ understanding of whom they

are and broaden their outlook. They nurture

students’ classroom focus by contextualising

their learning and sowing the seeds of positive

ambition.

Linwood College believes in a “pathwayed

Other Major Award Winners

curriculum”. This means the school, students

and families knowing:

1. Students’ learning and skills as they come

into LC from our partner primary schools

and building on these successes

2. How the learning at LC connects to what

the students want to do when they leave

school. “What are my post-school pathways

and how does my LC help me achieve these

pathways?”

In this way learning is meaningful to the

individual and strengths-based. At Linwood

the individual matters.

Finally, the Education Review Office reviewed

Linwood College in the second half of term 3.

The confirmed report is now public and I am

delighted to say that the school is back on the

three year return cycle. It is a testament to

everyone’s collective vision and positive work

for our school: BOT, staff, students, whanau,

partner schools and community.

Nga mihi nui and best wishes for the festive

season and summer holiday.

Year 10s get Enterprising

Last week ninety Year 10 students worked

hard for three days in the school gym to create

business ideas. Two presenters from the Young

Enterprise Trust came to the school to lead the

students through the process of creating and

developing businesses. On Wednesday, the

students were put into groups of between five and

ten students and given the challenge of creating

a new business based on modern technology. By

Friday, the students were ready to present their

ideas and associated business plans to judges

from the local business community.

Here Sina Sila and her team mates are presenting

their idea ‘Zoinks’ - an app that stops you from making

unnecessary purchases to Gyaney from BP.

2017 Senior Prizegiving Awards

Early in Term 3, the school’s senior

Shops bursting with

festive gift ideas

Finding those special gifts and stocking

fillers as well as the Christmas treats for

the table is so easy at our city’s malls and

shopping centres, where the shops are

bursting with festive merchandise.

Every woman likes to receive bodypampering

gifts, and there is a huge

selection of these priced to suit all budgets

at the many pharmacies and gift shops

around the city. Perfume is another

favourite and again there is a wide

selection to choose from, ranging from

exciting new releases to the well-known

fragrances that have stood the test of time.

Lingerie, jewellery, fashion accessories,

homewares and decor items – there’s no

end to the ideas for the women on the list.

The men are equally well catered for, from

the sophisticated metro-male boyfriends,

to the car-crazy brothers and the DIY

The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making

up the Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you

haven’t already done so.

enthusiast and keen gardener husbands

and dads. Choose from clothing, books,

tools, personal grooming items and

gadgets to put a smile on their face on

Christmas morning.

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families

more joy than seeing the excitement

of the children opening their presents.

Whether they are delivered by Santa or

snuck under the tree by mum and dad,

the cuddly toys, games, dolls and building

blocks, the candy canes, toy trucks and

pretty dresses currently filling the shops

will bring squeals of sheer happiness from

the smallest family members.

The tweens and teens usually have their

own ideas about what they want for

Christmas, so the gift cards offered by a

wide range of retailers are the perfect way

to please.

FLAME FILES

Fire warning as

summer starts

Cashmere win close final

to claim water polo title

• By Andrew King

CASHMERE High’s year 10

water polo team won the B

grade title at the South Island

junior secondary schools

championships.

Playing Papanui High in

the final, they narrowly won

1-0 thanks to a solid defensive

performance from Rosie Howard,

which saw her named most

valuable player in the decider.

Heading into the last quarter

at 0-0, it took a moment of

SPORTS

brilliance by Holly Cartwright

who scored after intercepting

a loose pass from Papanui’s

goalkeeper.

The teams met in the roundrobin

with Cashmere coming out

on top 4-2.

Cashmere coach Tom

Wilkinson said both teams had

a better understanding of each

other’s play which led to a much

tighter encounter in the final.

He said after a hiatus, the sport

is making a comeback at the

school. “We have not had a water

polo programme for 10 years

until we started it again last year

with this group of girls,” he said.

“We had three teams this year

so it is increasing in popularity.”

“This is also due to the work

of St Martins and Christchurch

South Intermediate, who are in

our school zone (and) have been

pushing it at year 7 and 8.”

heating up early

• By Mark Thomas – fire risk

management officer

AS THE summer heats up, so

does the number of calls our

troops are attending.

It’s normal to have about 100

calls in a week.

Weather events, of course, add

to the number.

So the 169 incidents attended

last week can at least in part be

attributed to the weather, or the

heat, to be more precise.

A large number of false

alarms, presumably from fire

detection systems drooping and

a large number of ambulance

assists including, unfortunately,

several sudden deaths, added to

the list.

Also we attended far too many

grass and skip or bin fires.

While a few of these are the

result of accidents most of them

were lit deliberately.

Whether it be kids playing or

malicious fire-starters, the dry

conditions make all of these

potentially serious.

The Governors Bay crew were

called to the local hotel on December

2 to what turned out to

be a patron puffing on a vaping

cigarette.

It’s a first for me to see this but

hardly surprising.

I followed a car the other day

with two people both vaping

and both front windows open.

The clouds of vapour they

were seemingly choreographing

erupted from both sides of the

car like whistles from a steam

train. I guess it’s better for them

than the alternative!

Sprinklers in buildings are

expensive. But one operating in

Pak’nSave in the Hornby Hub

on December 3 stopped a fire

from a bakers oven in its tracks.

The mall re-opened quickly.

That’s why we love sprinkler

systems.

From the Board

As we go to print we are excited to hear

our new Bishop, Fr Paul Martin SM,

has been appointed to Christchurch. In

celebrating the news, a special thank

you must go to Fr Rick Loughnan for

his leadership in the interim, to the

Diocese for its ongoing support and

we remember Bishop Barry Jones

with fondness. Bishop-Elect Paul’s

appointment represents an exciting

new phase of growth for our

Catholic community.

Thank you to our Board of Trustees,

college and community and members

of the Marian Foundation for your work

throughout 2017.

To our Marian girls – relax and enjoy the

well-earned break. There are some fantastic

programmes, and collaborative project

opportunities planned for 2018.

And finally, congratulations to our 2017

Marian College leavers. The gospel values

– which underpin the special character of

Marian College – will guide you well into

the future. We wish you all the very best

and please keep in touch.

Wishing you good health and blessings

this Christmas.

Georgiana Vaughan-Walker (right) Y12

has received the St John Grand Prior

Award in a ceremony hosted by the

The Grand Prior Award is the ultimate

award, other than for bravery, for St John

Cadets. Georgiana was one of 90 cadets

- including former Marian student Steph

Wessing (left) - from around New Zealand

to receive the prestigious award.

‘I love learning new leadership skills and

I’m really thankful I joined St John, as

otherwise I wouldn’t have considered the

Navy as a career path,’ she says.

Georgiana’s plans include a gap year,

travel, and a career in the Navy

as a medic.

The opportunities and benefits of an innercity

campus are many for Marian College

students.

From Year 11, students can choose to

earn credits at Ara Institute of Canterbury,

making the most of excellent facilities and

teaching expertise – just across the road.

Keely says she is very excited to be

‘I’m interested in a career in health,

‘Recognising my gifts and

Zonta Awards

The Zonta Awards are a celebration of the

highest sports achievers - leaders in their

sport locally and often competitors on the

world stage.

This year, three Marian College students

were finalists at the Zonta Sports Awards.

Renee Rae won the top award for her

contribution to netball umpiring. A judge

said Renee follows a long tradition of

Marian students who have won the award,

and there was something very special about

Marian College and its tradition of service.

Rebecca Lake (Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Irakehu)

and Millicent Smith (Ngāpuhi) were both

nominated for outstanding achievement

for their New Zealand representation

in football and ice hockey respectively.

This is the second year Rebecca has been

acknowledged in the highly competed

category.

Adding to opportunities in Halswell

Halswell

Community

Project’s

Chrys Horn

talks about

the Nga

Sports Hub and what it’ll

mean to the Halswell and

surrounding communities

Great sports opportunities –

both formal and informal and

more spaces which can be used

by our community are two

things that we can expect as Nga

Puna Wai develops.

Halswell is already a great

place for those interested in sport

and the developments in Nga

Puna Wai will add in athletics,

tennis and hockey to the

opportunities that already exist

in the area.

The addition of a pavilion with

café and bar facilities is also a

bonus for those who will use

the site for. We understand also

that the pavilion will have space

available for the community to

hire for their own events.

For Halswell people there

will also be great walking and

cycling opportunities as well as

community sports fields that can

be used for casual games. Many

people already use the area for

walking and this will not change.

We are hopeful that there

will be great cycle paths that

will connect from Aidanfield

through to Curletts Rd

and provide a safe and fun

way for Hillmorton High

School students to bike to school.

In addition they could also

provide a way to connect Hoon

Hay and Halswell Rd through to

the cycleway alongside the new

Southern Motorway.

It’s likely it will also be great

for local businesses – especially

those that will be setting up in

the new Halswell Commons

subdivision. The Halswell

Community Project is hopeful

they will be able to set up a

local weekly farmers market

when these developments are all

complete. As the area grows this

facility will be a wonderful

addition to the recreation

opportunities available

in Halswell, Wigram and

Hillmorton and Spreydon.

Pupils turn hand-made

goods into cold hard cash

• By Emily O’Connell

ST BERNADETTE’S School

pupils turned hand-made and

secondhand goods into money at

their market day last Thursday.

All 140 pupils, from new

entrants through to the year 8

students, were involved in the

market.

“We believe that every child

school’s market day. ​

has something worthwhile to

offer. One of the children in our

school is blind, he was able to

contribute by brailing labels for

bookmarks,” assistant principal

Lyn Satherley said.

Miss Satherley said each class

decided on a reward they would

like to have at the end of the

school term with the money they

raised.

She said classes then began

thinking about, and researching

products or services they could

sell or offer at the school market.

“Having a market offers an

authentic purpose for hands on

learning, across the curriculum;

science, maths, literacy, health,

the arts and in the key competencies,”

Miss Satherley said.

Sweets, bookmarks, secondhand

items, stress balls, games,

cards and sausages all went up

for sale.

The school also had a cafe,

face painting station, hair colour

station, traditional games, and a

water balloon throw.

“Having all of the children involved

in the market allows them

to take ownership over their

learning and working as a team,”

Miss Satherley said.

She said any additional profit

from the market will go towards

a community day at the end of

the term.

St Bernadette’s hold a market

day every second year.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

CHRISTMAS HAM ON THE BONE GLAZED WITH PINEAPPLE

Ingredients

4kg ham on the bone

1 cup canned crushed pineapple,

drained

1 cup brown sugar, tightly packed

1 tsp ground ginger

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180 deg

C. Run a knife around the shank

end of the ham. Carefully slice

under the edge of the rind at the

base of the ham. Use your fingers

to ease between the rind and the

fat. Pull to gently remove the

rind. With a sharp knife, score

the fat with 3mm-deep cuts in a

diamond pattern. Place ham in a

foil-lined oven pan large enough

to catch any glaze that drips as it

cooks. Surround ham with one

cup cold water.

Drain pineapple and combine

with glaze ingredients in a bowl.

Smear glaze over scored fat of

ham.

Bake ham for 40-45min,

basting at regular intervals until

the glaze has caramelised to a

golden brown.

Rest the baked ham for at least

15min before carving. Sliced ham

can either be served hot or at

room temperature.

ROSE PETAL MERINGUE WITH SUMMER BERRIES AND STRAWBERRY SAUCE

Ingredients

5 eggs

300g caster sugar

1 Tbsp cornflour

1 Tbsp dried rose petals

300 ml cream

250g blueberries

250g raspberries

1 lime

250g strawberries

Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 deg C

and line a flat baking sheet with

non-stick baking paper. Using

an electric beater, whip the egg

whites until firm, then whisk in

the sugar. Fold in the cornflour

and rose petals and place large

spoonfuls of the mixture onto

the baking sheet. Bake for 40-

45min.

When the meringue tops are

crisp, remove them from the

oven and leave to cool. For the

sauce, puree the strawberries

and lime juice in a blender. If the

flavour is too sharp, add a little

icing sugar.

Whip the cream until it looks

soft. Mix the berries in a bowl.

Place a meringue on each plate

with a pile of cream next to it,

and pour over the sauce and

Miracle weight loss fruit

An extract of a small pumpkin-like fruit

called Garcinia Cambogia from India &

Asia has shown itself to greatly assist weight

As well as this, Dilo Oil has

FRESH: Tomato plants ready to leave Rolleston. ​

Rolleston Prison donates

tomato plants to

social housing tenants

MORE than 5000 tomato

plants have been handed

over to the Ōtautahi Community

Housing Trust to

be donated to city housing

tenants.

The plants are an annual

project at Rolleston Prison

and are grown from seed

to plant ready for home

gardens.

The plants take eight to

ten weeks from planting

and germination until

they are ready to be collected.

“This project gives

prisoners an opportunity

to give something back

and provides people in

the community with the

means to grow healthy

food for themselves and

their family,” said Rolleston

Prison director Mike

Howson.

“Many of the prisoners

know what it is like to

struggle financially and

they enjoy the opportunity

to do something for the

community, especially

near to Christmas.

Seeing the plants leave

the prison for a person’s

garden means a great deal

to the men involved,” he

said.

More than 40,000

tomato plants have been

cultivated and donated

since the Tomatoes for

Tenants Project began

in 2008 and the annual

delivery of the tomatoes is

highly anticipated by the

city housing tenants.

Rick Fraser of Ōtautahi

said the trust values the

partnership with Rolleston

Prison and many tenants

appreciate the plants and

save a space in their gardens

for them.

Leftover plants are gifted

to schools and community

groups.

Time to check your tyres before

heading away on holiday

As the holidays approach and plans are

made for summer road trips, now is the

time to check that your tyres are in good

condition, says Julie Hurst of JCM Direct,

the tyre specialists in Birmingham Drive.

Julie and her husband Athol own the

business, with Julie running it on a dayto-day

basis.

Now that WOFs on later model vehicles

are issued every 12 months, drivers may

be unaware that their tyres are becoming

worn, Julie says.

“Come in and see us. We offer free tyre

checks, so you can head away on holiday

knowing they are roadworthy and your

family is safe.”

If tyres do need replacing, JCM Direct

offers a wide variety of quality brands at

very competitive prices. They have new

tyres for everything from cars, vans and

4WDs, to caravans, ride-on mowers,

wheelbarrows and trailers. As well as an

excellent selection of quality second-hand

tyres for most vehicles, they hold a vast

selection of 4WD tyres in stock.

JCM Direct also offer puncture repairs,

supply and fitting of new and secondhand

alloy wheels, wheel alignments,

replacement factory steel rims and rim

repairs.

“We also specialise in old rims from

the 1930s to 1970s for people with older

caravans and trailers – the modern rims

won’t fit those,” Julie says.

Finance is available with Q Card or

Farmers Card.

JCM Direct is located on the corner

of Birmingham Drive and Hands Road.

They are open Monday to Friday, 9.30am-

Public Notice

Is your property

safe from fire?

Here’s a guide to help understand

the risk in your area

During the fire season, there are some risks you need to know about to help keep you,

your family and your property safe.

Throughout New Zealand, there are different levels of risk, depending on where you

live and what the area around you is like. As we build more and more homes in

previously rural areas, the level of risk is different to properties built in a more urban

setting. Make sure you check your property and are aware of your surroundings so

you can be best prepared this fire season.

Steps you need to take to keep your property safe

1

3

Make sure you have a ‘safe zone’ around your property

- Clear vegetation close to your home. This could fuel a fire if one started.

- Choose plants with low flammability – native plants are often better.

- Keep your lawns mowed and green.

- Don’t store firewood close to the house.

- Clear your gutters of dry leaves.

- Be careful when using any mechanical equipment in dry conditions.

Have an escape plan and an agreed safe meeting place

- Go to www.escapeplanner.co.nz to make a plan to get out of your

home safely and agree a safe meeting place. Practise this regularly.

- Think about where you will meet if you need to evacuate the area.

- Have an emergency evacuation kit in case you need to leave quickly.

- If in doubt, leave early.

Good access for firefighters

- Fire trucks need a lot of space to manoeuvre. Make sure there are no

overgrown trees or other obstacles that may prevent access to your

property.

- We can pump from water supplies such as a pond, pool or tank.

- Make sure your address or RAPID number is clearly visible.

The fire risk applies to everyone, no matter where you live.

ALI HARPER CELEBRATES

THE JOY OF CHRISTMAS

AWARD winning entertainer - Ali Harper - is

once again bringing some Christmas Joy to

Canterbury. Aer her sold out Christmas Joy

shows last year, Ali has put together another

beautifully festive concert incorporating the

Voices Co Youth Ensemble along with winner

of TVNZ’s Naked Choir and founder of Voices

Co, Julian Hay on piano.

“I adore this time of year. Not only because

I see it through the eyes of my children but

because it’s a special time to reflect on the past

year, the joys and the challenges. I have

created a concert that will include the angelic

voices of children singing which is both pure

and for me what Christmas is all about.”

In a career spanning 25 years, Ali has

starred in numerous musicals and plays across

Room in New York, entertained on cruise

ships, made numerous television appearances,

and has recorded a collection of albums.

“YOU would be mad not to go and sparkle

in Ali Harper’s light.” - eatreview 2017.

“Loud applause for this generously gied

actress, with an all-enveloping voice that can

take us with her no matter what she sings, is a

further extension of the celebration of song that

Ali offers.” - Lindsay Clark, eatreview
