Chlorination decision

• By Georgia O’Connor Harding and

Andrew King

DRINKING WATER from the

Avonhead pump station could be

chlorinated because it is at risk of

being contaminated.

The city council will decide on

Thursday whether it will chlorinate

looms this week

drinking water not only at the

Avonhead pump, but at Farrington

and Grampian pump stations as well.

Chlorination is being considered

because the north-west catchment

bores have a low grading of D, while

the rest of the city has a higher B

grade.

The city council report said that the

recent water contamination incident

in Havelock North has raised concerns

about water and public health

risks.

The city council report has recommended

that temporary chlorination

goes ahead until deeper wells are

commissioned in 2017.

Anger over boy racers

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

TENSIONS ARE ready to

spill over on a Hornby street

because boy racers have been

keeping residents awake.

Now residents are retaliating

by throwing stones at vehicles.

A petition has been signed

by nearly 100 residents living

in Oakhampton St, Hornby,

to stop “dangerous” boy racers

and speeding trucks by getting

speed bumps installed.

It was presented to the Riccarton-Wigram

Community

Board last Tuesday and was

supported with a letter from

Wigram MP Megan Woods.

Residents are frustrated by

the amount vehicles speeding

through the street, saying it is

an accident waiting to happen

and keeping them awake at

night.

Resident Vi O’Connor, who

presented the petition to the

board, said many were stressed

and not sleeping at night.

She said some of the

residents were so angry, people

had been throwing rocks at the

boy racers as they drove past.

“It is very noisy as well as

dangerous when people are

trying to sleep. A lot of them

have got their bedrooms up

near the road.

“There are so many kids in

the street, it is surprising none

of them have been hurt,” Mrs

O’Connor said.

Acting Senior Sergeant Dan

Harker said he was not aware

of the issue and residents need

to call the police at the time of

the incident.

He said the police “clearly”

do not encourage residents

to throw rocks at cars or take

matters into their own hands.

The problems arose after

speed bumps were installed on

Brynley St about eight years

ago, which is directly across

from Oakhampton St.

But community board chairman

Mike Mora said speed

bumps may not be the best

solution.

“It can cause more issues

and frustrations for residents

in some cases because the cars

slow down, bounce and crash

over some of the speed bumps

and then accelerate away

again,” he said.

In Brief

CAFE LEASE DECISION

The city council will make a

decision on the appointment

of a new cafe to take over from

Wishbone at Te Hapua: Halswell

Centre. The Riccarton-Wigram

Community Board resolved to

appoint Xin Ding Yi Ltd, which

owns Red Cafe, as the preferred

lease holder.

LEAGUE CLUB LEASE

The Fendalton-Waimairi

Community Board has

recommended the city council grant

a lease to Riccarton Leagues Club

Inc for Crosbie Park. A decision

will be made by the city council on

Thursday. Crosbie Park is located off

Withells Rd in Avonhead.

$56,000 RAISED

Original Foods Baking has helped

raise more than $56,000 for the

Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal

over the past three years. The

Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal

cake is a red velvet celebration

cake sold in Countdown stores

nationwide. One dollar from

every cake sold is donated to the

appeal. The appeal was set up

to help provide much needed

medical equipment to 11 children’s

50s fashion fundraiser draws crowd

• By A lex Lim

A VINTAGE-enthusiast

orchestrated a fashion show that

showcased more than a hundred

vintage outfits last Saturday at

Halswell School.

It involved 12 teachers, six parents

and close to a dozen school

children.

Deborah Gill-Smith, a fulltime

chef who provided the vintage

outfits from the 50s, 60s and

70s, had organised seven vintage

fashion shows in the last four

years primarily to help people

raise money.

By buying vintage outfits or by

collecting them from her family

members, she owned over a

hundred outfits for men, women

and children, complete with hats,

handbags and shoes, including

a wedding dress from the pre-

World War 2 era.

“I have a passion for vintage

clothing,” Ms Gill-Smith said.

“Most days I wear something

vintage everywhere I go,” she

said.

Ms Gill-Smith said vintage

clothes, mostly styled in London

but locally made, were better

than manufactured goods in

terms of quality and were “different,”

giving her a sense of

individuality.

FASHIONISTA: Deborah Gill-Smith orchestrated a vintage fashion

show recently to help Halswell School fundraise to build a new

playground, fitness circuit and native planting area.

She hoped young people would

appreciate and treasure clothing

from their grandparents.

“It is exposing them to vintage

as their lives are very modern,”

she said.

Halswell School teacher and

“vintage fashion model” Ange

Pettersson said everyone had

fun in the community and it was

nice to do something different

for fundraising.

“Who does not like getting

dressed up?”

She said the children realised

the teachers were “actually

humans” and it was good for the

parents to see them in a different

light, building the connection

between home and school.

Vintage fashion show event coordinator

Carmel Hooper said

the event helped to supplement

funds to build a playground,

a fitness circuit and a native

planting area. There was no

playground for the older children

since the earthquakes destroyed

their school. The school had been

seeking to raise $100,000 over

the past few years.

Pianos

Inspired by old world craftsmanship and the artistry of Italian design,

Palatino takes its name from a central hill in Rome where ancient emperors

built their palaces. Palatino builds pianos based on the pursuit of “Quality

not Quantity.” With this mission in mind, we have imported the highest

quality components from around the world.

Canadian white spruce is imported for soundboards, Roslau strings from

Germany; beech wood from France for grand piano rims and Renner

hammers from Germany on the Concert Series pianos. These are all

components found in some of the most expensive pianos in the world.

Play one and see for yourself – from design to construction, from the

studio to the concert hall, Palatino is truly a World Class Piano.

Swimmer ready for transplant games

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BEN STANBURY, 11, was

once told he had a one-in-three

chance of dying.

Now, after receiving a liver

transplant last year, the young

swimmer will be the only child

organ recipient from New

Zealand to be compete at the

Australian Transplant Games

held in Sydney.

Ben, of St Albans, will travel

to Sydney this week to compete

in swimming, shot-put, a 50m

sprint and 10-pin bowling.

At four months old, Ben

was diagnosed with polycystic

kidney disease after he was

rushed to hospital with heart

failure.

The disease is a genetic disorder

where abnormal cysts grow

in the kidneys. He also

had severe problems with his

liver.

The night of his diagnosis was

a moment his mother Traci Stanbury

would never forget after she

was told he had a one-in-three

chance in dying.

“In the end they paralysed

him, put him on an ambulance

and he spent the next month

living up in Starship Hospital,”

she said.

Mrs Stanbury said since the

“traumatic” night, Ben’s heart

DETERMINED: Eleven-year-old Ben Stanbury will be the only child organ recipient from New

Zealand to compete at the Australian Transplant Games.

condition has been sorted but a liver.

he still had a liver and kidney “All I remember is lying in bed

condition.

with just like a giant band-aid

Last year Ben had a transplant thing over my stomach,” Ben

operation after he was donated said.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

It was an experience he

described as “confusing” but

because he recovered so quickly

from the operation he was out

of hospital in about five weeks

and back into swimming a few

months later.

Over the next few years Ben

will be looking to have a kidney

transplant with his kidney function

currently at 40 per cent.

Mrs Stanbury said he will be

put on a waiting list of about

600 people when it gets to 30 per

cent.

But for now, Ben is looking

forward to going over to competing

in the games as well as visiting

Featherdale Wildlife Park.

“For him to be the exact same

as everyone else in the room and

to be completely normal, that is

quite a cool thing for him to do,”

Mrs Stanbury said.

Inspired by paralympian Sophie

Pascoe, who won five medals

at the Rio Paralympics, Ben

will be competing in numerous

events including his favourite

sport of swimming.

Ben first became interested

in swimming at age four and

leading up to the games he has

been practising once a week in

preparation.

“Never give up because it can

always be done,” he said.

“Ben is very proud of the fact

he is going. He is a very laid-back

kid by nature just because of

everything he has been through,”

Mrs Stanbury said.

Just like you I want

This is our community and we

the Riccarton Ward. I grew up

in Riccarton and attended local

schools. Previously, I worked in

customer service and hospitality

both here and overseas. I moved

back to Christchurch six years

ago to study and start a family. I

have a Bachelor of Science degree

from Lincoln University, where

I am also on track to complete

a Master of Science (Ecology)

degree early next year. I also run

a successful local window cleaning

Our local community should

There needs be confidence that

Our complex financial situation

There are still many challenges

reduce rates increases, finishing

the repairs to our roads and footpaths,

restoring our community

infrastructure and facilities, and

devolving more decision making

to the local level. I will be supporting

more residential development

in the central city and that

the red zone must be restored in

an ecologically sustainable manner

in order to make it a longterm

asset for the city.”

‘Army’ to the rescue

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE PLIGHT of children

rescued from their homes

by Child, Youth and Family,

sometimes with nothing but

the clothes on their back, has

mobilised an army.

“Paddy’s Army”, that is – a

group of about 25 St Patrick’s

School pupils in Bryndwr who

have collected almost 150 pairs of

pyjamas to give to foster children.

The pyjamas will be included in

backpacks made up by volunteer

group Foster Hope Christchurch,

which also include things like

toiletries, books and soft toys.

Co-ordinator Ngarie Worsley

said the packs were personalised

for each foster child, to try to make

them feel loved and valued at a

rough point in their lives, when

they had to leave their own homes

to move in with a foster family.

“We used to see children come

with garbage bags full of stuff,

and if your stuff is in a garbage

bag you don’t exactly feel so

great,” she said.

The St Patrick’s pupils were

inspired to help by the stories

of one of their classmates, who

was a foster child, Paddy’s Army

member Izzy Gibson said.

“We thought that we’re so

Izzie Gibson with some of the 148 pairs of pyjamas their class

raised money to buy for foster children. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

lucky to have all the things that

we have, when some people are

being taken out of their homes

in the middle of the night to go

to a family that they don’t even

know,” she said.

They created posters, spoke in assembly

to inspire their fellow pupils

to help, and did “a lot of nagging”

to collect the pyjamas, fellow army

member Kate Wield said.

In the past, the pupils have

organised a blanket collection for

St Vincent de Paul, and they plan

to do more to help local charities

in the future.

Mrs Worsley said the pupils’

effort would make a huge difference

to Foster Hope, which works

to put together about 5000 packs

each year.

“It just blows my mind and I

think it’s incredible, because 150

pairs of pyjamas means that we

can more than do what we need

to do this year,” she said.

She said the charity still needed

donations of things like toiletries,

small toys or craft activities.

Chlorination decision

looms this week

•From page 1

Due to the shallowness of the

bores, they are considered most

susceptible to microbiological

contaminants as the ground

water can be affected by land

use activities above as surface

water can seep into the aquifer.

The areas “specifically

affected” will be notified,

particularly “vulnerable

parties” such as

dialysis patients.

Russley, Avonhead

and Memorial Residents’

Association

chairman Geoff Judge

(right) said it is the

first he has heard of

the chlorination but if

there is a risk then the

water has to be chlorinated.

“It rather concerns me

because we are used to having

such lovely water. If it has

chlorine in it, it would be just

awful,” Mr Judge said.

Riccarton-Wigram Community

Board deputy chairwoman

Helen Broughton said the

board was not briefed on the

chlorination.

The other options for city

councillors to consider are;

upgrade the other wells quicker

without chlorination, continue

the projects original timeline

and include chlorination or do

nothing.

Bores at Burnside and Harewood

could have standby units

for chlorination.

Professor for strategic waterway

management at the Waterway

Centre Bryan Jenkins

said the water will

be safe to drink if

chlorinated, but with

a change in taste and

smell.

“Provided they use

appropriate means

of chlorinating the

water it will make it

safer to drink while

the new bores are

drilled down to an appropriate

depth,” he said.

Chlorination equipment at

Farrington, Grampian and

Avonhead pump stations would

cost $2000 per site with ongoing

maintenance at $5000 per site.

Fundraiser for Maddie

Riccarton students’

recognised

Riccarton High School students (from left): Adam Stedman,

Jacob Miles, Jordyn Hasselberg, and Muskaan Lal

recently received their Canterbury University Student Volunteer

Army UCan programme completion certificates recently.

The certificates were awarded to them by Student

Volunteer Army members Daniel Stack and Bonnie Dalton.

The Student Volunteer Army recently hosted the final

session of the Canterbury University Student Volunteer

Army UCan programme for year 10s, where students got

the chance to brainstorm new project ideas and celebrate

their volunteering achievements they had completed.

ABOUT $2,462 has been raised by

Villa Maria College to support a St

Margaret’s College student in need

of a kidney transplant.

The school held a mufti day last

Tuesday for 12-year-old Maddie

Collins, who’s best hope of finding

a suitable match will require her to

travel to the United States. The trip

is expected to cost $350,000.

Villa Maria College head girl Liv

Kerr said everyone at the school

rallied together for the event which

was cool to see.

“All the year 13s slaved away the

Celebrations at fast-growing Hornby travel outlet

House of Travel Hornby is

celebrating its second birthday

this month, and since its launch

in 2014, not only has the business

grown, with staff numbers increasing from

three to five, it has also collected several

awards.

As owner/operator Paula Waldeck

explains, in its first year of operation,

House of Travel Hornby was named

‘Best Performing Small Outlet’ for 2015.

Plus, at the same awards two of the travel

consultants received sales awards.

And this year, Paula, who has been in

the travel industry since 1996, has been

nominated as one of three nationwide

finalists at the TAANZ (Travel Agent

Association of New Zealand) Awards in

the category of ‘Retail Manager of the

Year’. The winner will be announced later

this month.

Paula and her “awesome team” of travel

specialists – Kirsty Stewart, Sarah Davy

and Christine Gilliver, and travel and sales

support team member Shaunice Ross, are

“passionate about all things travel.”

The travel specialists all have extensive

experience in the travel industry and have

travelled widely themselves so they can

pass on their first-hand experience. They

each have special areas of the world

they particularly like, and enjoy nothing

more than helping their clients plan and

book trips to many of these exciting and

fascinating destinations.

As Paula notes, they enjoy working

with customers to create the best holiday

possible.“We encourage clients to bring

in their ideas, whether from magazines,

friends or the internet to a consultant and

from there we develop and enhance ideas

to book the best- possible trip.”

Helping people make the most of their

overseas trips, House of Travel Hornby

passes on their top tips and ensures they

get the best value airfare to suit their needs,

so travellers have extra funds to spend on

activities, shopping, or whatever they wish

to do.

One of the most popular options at

present, Paula says, is cruising – either

river or ocean cruising. With many

wonderful opportunities available to see

the world this way, increasing numbers of

clients are booking cruises, she says.

House of Travel Hornby at 40 Carmen

Road has parking right outside the door.

My last holiday was a six-week holiday

New York Mexico and everything inbetween!

Top of my list for next year is

Travel and exploring the globe is number

for next year is Cuba. Followed closely by

Hawaii and LA.

I love being surrounded by all things

travel every day. Helping the girls

plan their clients’ dream holiday is so

Major developments scheduled for local high school

An integral part of the Hornby

community, Hornby High School,

which opened in 1975, is itself about

to undergo significant developments.

All the present school buildings, apart

from the auditorium and music school, which

will have a facelift, are to be demolished

and replaced with a brand-new complex of

buildings. Work on the $24-million project

is due to start in March/April 2017 with

completion expected in late 2018.

Principal Robin Sutton reveals the details:

“The administration building and the library

will be demolished and replaced with one

large, 90-metre-long building, which will house

our specialised teaching areas – the sciences,

design/technology and the arts. That’s where we

believe the heart of the school is.”

“Creativity is at the heart of what we do,” he

adds. “As technology changes, the ability for

all of us to be creative human beings is what

matters.”

In more physical terms, the heart of the new

school, the whare, also located in this building,

will be the focus of the school’s cultural

activities.

The school’s new library will incorporate a

student café, which will be nothing like the

standard school tuck shop, Mr Sutton says. A

place where students can take time out between

classes, it will offer comfortable seating areas

and a barista station.

Also part of the development is a space

comprising three learning hubs, each designed

to accommodate 200 students and offer

flexibility for different teaching and learning

activities. It will allow for additions at a later

date.

Covered laneways between the various

buildings will provide space where students

can “hang out”.

Hornby High will also be getting a brandnew

gymnasium, or more precisely, two

gymnasiums built as one complex, with a

basketball court in each building.

“This is to meet community demand for

recreational facilities in Hornby,”

Mr Sutton says.

Hornby High School is growing, with

the new buildings initially designed to

accommodate 800 students, but with the

Masterplan providing the capacity for 1200-

1300 students, he says.

The Ministry of Education’s acting head of

sector enablement and support, Steve Stuart,

explains that the new classrooms at Hornby

High are part of the Christchurch Schools

Rebuild programme, which is investing

$1.137b to remodel, rebuild, and repair 115

schools in the Christchurch region.

“The programme is repairing earthquake

damage caused by the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes, fixing weather tightness issues,

strengthening buildings where required and

upgrading schools’ teaching spaces,” Mr

Stuart says.

“By the end of the programme, more than

80 per cent of state school teaching spaces in

greater Christchurch will meet high quality

standards for lighting, ventilation, heating and

acoustics, and all will be equipped to support

the latest digital technology. “We aim to create

flexible learning spaces that will support each

school’s vision for raising achievement for

students. We have spent $2m on eight new

classrooms for Year 7 and 8 students at Hornby

High School. Building works are planned

to take place in three major stages, while

minimising student disruption and allowing

the school to stay open throughout.”

Mr Sutton says the Ministry has been

“awesome” to work with and all the schools

around the city involved in the redevelopment

programme are co-operating with each other.

Shoppers Share Their Views

With its fast-growing shopping area and other key developments, Hornby is attracting a wide diversity of people from Hornby

and further afield. Western News spoke to some of them out and about in the Hornby shopping area to find out their opinions

on the changes that have been taking place.

LEFT TO RIGHT Jason Mendoza and Don Don Tanggap, the Bedi family, and Cherie, Josh and Alex Cooper are just a few of the local residents who love shopping at The Hub.

A Rolleston resident, Pip Muir shops

regularly in Hornby as it is on her way

home from work. She thinks the changes

are good for the area and says it’s good to

see more shops in The Hub. She is also

happy to see the other new developments

taking place around Hornby.

A New Brighton resident, but formerly

from Hornby, June Tyrell visits Hornby

twice a week to collect children from

school and uses the opportunity to visit

The Hub. She says the shops are looking

very attractive and she can’t wait for it to

be finished.

Raj, his wife Nimi Bedi moved down

from Auckland almost six months

ago, and are living in Rolleston. They

followed their son, Dushan who had

come to Christchurch to help with the

Anhad. The family comes to Hornby

Justice of the Peace and volunteers at the

Hornby Citizens Advice Bureau.

A visitor from Kaikoura, this was the

third time Julie Syme had been to The

Hub. She says the changes are “quite

refreshing” and she likes seeing the

changes and the growth in Hornby. She

appreciates the “good signage” in The

Hub and says she will be back.

Cherie, Josh and Alex Cooper live in

Rolleston but come to Hornby “all the

time,” Cherie says. She and her sons

enjoy The Hub – Cherie likes all the

new shops and the boys like the slushies

at Wendy’s, the sushi and Couplands

Bakery. They also enjoy letting off steam

at Mega Air, the indoor trampoline park

in Carmen Road.

Prebbleton resident Sandra Fairbairn

visits Hornby once a week. She says

the new developments are going to

revolutionise the area. She believes they

are good for the local people and the

economy, and says there is a tremendous

cross-section of businesses coming in.

Hornby resident Debbie Dick loves

shopping at the new mall, and says she is

so pleased to have the new food court there.

There are a lot of fast food restaurants

around the mall, and it was about time they

put in a food court, Debbie says.

Spotted shopping in The Hub, Jason

Mendoza and Don Don Tanggap arrived

from the Philippines around two months

ago. They are working as upholsterers at

Sleepyhead and living at nearby Awatea.

They like shopping at the Hub for the

“good prices,” especially at Pak ‘n’ Save.

Iconic mall heart of Hornby shopping

While Hornby boasts a huge range of retail

outlets, including many of New Zealand’s

major brand names, the heart of the suburb’s

shopping environment is undoubtedly its

iconic mall – The Hub Hornby.

Providing a central shopping spot for residents since

it opened in 1976 as Hornby

Mall, the complex has

undergone many changes

over the last 40 years.

Originally, it was housed in a

number of separate buildings,

but the last 20 years have

seen the businesses in the

complex come together to

operate under one roof, with

a $7.5 million redevelopment

taking place in 1998.

The 1980s and 1990s saw

the mall grow in popularity,

taking on a more family focus,

though today as an integral

part of the community, it

caters for all demographics.

Another major refurbishment took place in 2005 with

a new architectural look and a new colour scheme, and

the following year the name was changed from Hornby

Mall to The Hub Hornby, bringing a mixed response

from local residents.

One notable feature, centre manager Jason Marsden

points out, is that The Hub Hornby is one of very few

locally owned shopping malls in the South Island, and as

such has developed its own distinct culture.

Prior to the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, expansion

work had been planned for the centre, Mr Marsden says,

and that work began in 2012.

Hornby was fortunate to escape major earthquake

damage, and with no structural damage sustained, The

Hub was only closed for half a day after the February 22

event, he says.

All the buildings are now 100-plus per cent of code.

Among the many developments that have been

occurring over the last 15 years, one of the most

significant was the opening of the new Farmers store

covering 6000 sqm over two levels in September 2014.

The development, which was completed in March this

year, also includes six speciality shops located at the

entrance to Farmers.

Providing greater convenience for Hub shoppers will

be the installation of a ramp to connect the two levels

of roof-top car parking, creating a flow between them.

It will be accessible from the upper level of the Farmers.

A new internal retail precinct following the line of

Chalmers Street and joining the new Farmers with the

northern entrance is also now open.

“This creates a flow right through the centre of The

Hub,” Mr Marsden says.

Following on from that will be the opening of the

northern atrium, which will become the main entrance

to the complex. This is due for completion in mid-

November.

The new food court space is also now accessible with

tenants opening as they complete their fit-outs,” Mr

Marsden says.

“This is an

architecturally

d e s i g n e d

contemporary

space offering

different types of

seating, depending

on what people

want. In addition

to the existing

food outlets, there

will be more

opening up giving

our shoppers even

greater choice.”

The other

advantage for

Hub shoppers, Mr

Marsden says, is that it is just a five-minute walk from

several large retailers in the area, namely Dressmart, The

Warehouse and Toy World, with Mitre 10 and Harvey

Norman also close by.

“Hornby is becoming known for its retail. And there is

good development still happening, with new businesses

still opening up. The stars are aligned, it’s a great location,

there’s a strong, vibrant, growing community, so we are

on the ascendancy.”

Today, The Hub Hornby offers shoppers an enticing

mix of retail and service outlets, including the major

banks – a central point where locals and visitors can

browse and shop in a friendly, community-minded

environment.

Focus on achieving goals at

Hornby fitness centre

WESTERN NEWS

For Hornby residents, there’s no

reason not to stay fit when the

Hornby fitness studio Anytime

Fitness is open 24 hours a day,

plus being conveniently located in the

heart of the Hornby shopping area, it is

easy to access too.

At just over 17 months old, this bright,

modern, unisex gym offers facilities that

are in tip-top condition and very clean.

There are eight friendly staff members,

including five personal trainers, who have

members’ best interests at heart.

Anytime Fitness offers a range of group

fitness classes, as well as virtual classes,

with the focus being on helping people

achieve their health and fitness goals, says

manager Chris.

On joining the club, new members

are given one hour free with a personal

trainer, who will show them how to use

the equipment and give them exercises to

get them started, she says.

“We like to work on people,” Chris

says. “We ask new members if they’ve

belonged to a fitness club before and we

talk to them about what their goals are and

see if their plans for what they want to do

at the gym measure up realistically with

these goals.

“We nurture our members, and if they

haven’t been to the gym regularly we

follow up by text or email to make sure

everything is alright with them, and help

them get back on track if necessary.”

This can include a motivation session

with a personal trainer and a free six to

eight-week programme, depending on

their lack of use.

“After all, they have paid to join the gym,

so we want to show them we appreciate

that and encourage them to keep up their

fitness regime by giving them a kick-start

if they need it,” Chris says.

Prospective members who are not

sure about joining up are offered a free,

no-obligation seven-day trial on seven

consecutive days. As of September 1, the

club has also introduced a new month-tomonth

flexible contract.

Members of Anytime Fitness Hornby

are all ages and from all walks of life, with

a lot of families belonging to the club.

“One person will join, and they enjoy

it so much they tell their family members

about it and they come along too. Those

referrals are a testament to how good our

club is,” Chris says.

The club also runs a number of social

events and activities during the year,

which gives members the opportunity to

socialise and get to know each other.

Members of Anytime Fitness Hornby

can also access all five of the Anytime

Fitness centres in Christchurch, as well as

the other 24 centres around New Zealand,

and the thousands across the world.

trial at Anytime Fitness Hornby, phone

Karate Club Sends Student to

Japan for Championship

With the title of the So-

Kyokuishin World Karate

Championship Tournament

in Japan just around the

corner, Steve Burt is currently immersed

in intensive training with his instructor,

Sensei Mark Webster at the Hornby

based Kyokushin Karate Club. Next

month Steve will head to Shizuoka-city to

compete against the world’s top fighters.

To reach the finals - held in Japan on

22 and 23 October - Steve won several

bouts in order to qualify for the world

championship.

With a 3rd Kyu Green Belt Black

Tab and having won two match fights

in Milton within the past year, Steve

is well equipped to take on some of

the world’s most experienced fighters

in Japan next month. Just one amongst

a hundred from over 50 countries

around the globe, Steve has put in the

hard yards over the years to reach this

exciting point.

Since being captivated by Jean-

Claude Van Damme’s fighting skills in

action movies as a young boy, Steve

has cultivated his passion to emulate his

hero. Growing up in Karamea, however,

training opportunities were few and far

between he fostered his ambition for

martial arts through teaching himself

the basics from books.

When he was 15 his dad got a job

driving milk tankers to and from

Hokitika where Steve knew there were

weekly karate classes. After some

careful negotiations with his mother

Steve struck a deal to join his father

on his weekly trips so he could attend

karate classes on Sundays.

This routine of long distance classes

continued until Steve moved to Nelson

two and a half years later and karate has

been a pillar in his life ever since.

In anticipation of the tournament in

Japan next month the 34 year old has

spent the past three months in intensive

training with his eye firmly on the prize.

Competition is fierce and with it

comes unflinching commitment for this

aspiring karate master. On top of training

in the regular classes on Mondays and

Thursdays every week with the rest of

the club, Steve spends an additional 1-4

hours 5-6 days a week in one-on-one

training with Sensei Webster.

“A typical session begins with 10

minutes of skipping to warm up followed

by dynamic stretching. Shadow sparring

is designed to develop speed, which is

followed by ten three minute rounds

on a heavy bag, and ends with 15-20

minutes of stamina work like shuttle

runs with pyramid sets of push ups, situps

and jump squats.”

With unwavering support from his

club, Sensei and his family, Steve’s

girlfriend is of course his number one

fan and trains by his side at the biweekly

club classes whom Steve says is “a great

support and motivator.”

“I hope to do my family, my Sensei,

my Dojo and MOKK NZ family proud.”

“Martial arts has always been a major

part of my life and it always will be.”

More than just an effective form

of self-defense, Kyokushin Karate is

an ultimate form of fitness training.

Providing an intense, full-body workout

that improves stamina, speed, power,

flexibility and pure strength, it’s also a

great workout for the mind and improves

self-confidence.

weekly classes and monthly rates for

kids, adults and families, visit www.

Post-quake residential growth

a boon for Hornby

There has been a significant residential

movement to the south and west

of Christchurch city following the

earthquakes that severely damaged

large swathes of the eastern suburbs, and

Hornby has been a “huge beneficiary”

of this movement, says regional director

for REINZ Canterbury/Westland/Nelson/

Marlborough, Jim Davis.

“Hornby has taken off as a result, with

the new shops and everything else that

has gone on contributing to this, and

with people moving to where there was

employment,” Mr Davis says.

“Following the earthquakes there was

an initial increase in employment right

through this part of Christchurch. Hornby

has benefitted because it is an affordable

suburb to buy homes in, which has brought

a lot of people here.”

REINZ figures show that over the

months of May, June and July 2015,

residential sales in Hornby and the

surrounding suburbs of Wigram,

Sockburn, Aidanfield and Halswell were

as follows: May, 54 sales, with a median

price of $470,000; June, 65 sales with a

median price of $520,000; and July, 66

sales with a median price of $484,000. In

the same three months this year, sales were

as follows: May, 74 sales with a median

price of $536,500; June, 66 sales with a

median price of $469,250; July, 57 sales

with a median price of $482,500.

The improvements in roading, such as

the Southern Motorway and the by-pass

north to Russley Road, have also benefitted

Hornby, Mr Davis says.

New subdivisions in adjacent areas are

contributing to Hornby’s growth, too.

“Rolleston has grown at a huge rate and

people living there stop off in Hornby

for shopping on their way to and from

Christchurch, and this has added to the

interest in the suburb.”

Mr Davis believes the retail

developments have brought a change of

image to Hornby and people are looking at

the suburb differently now.

“It’s not the outpost of Christchurch that

it once was.”

On the city side of Hornby, Wigram

has also seen major growth following the

earthquakes, including the sub-division at

Wigram Skies on the former air force base,

which is being developed by Ngai Tahu

Property.

“South-west Christchurch has long been

an identified growth corridor for the city

and Wigram Skies provided the impetus

for the development of this region in the

post-earthquake era,” says development

manager Wigram Skies Scott Johansson.

“In the earlier stages of the development

there was demand from a number of red

zone residents. Anecdotally, there were

also a lot of sales coming from people who

had sold their existing dwellings to red

zoners and then upgraded to a new house

at Wigram.”

Another sub-division, Awatea, which is a

public-private housing project comprising

affordable homes, is being constructed on

Crown-owned land in Wigram by Fletcher

Residential. The 11.5-hectare site was

land owned by the NZ Transport Agency

and left over from the construction of the

Southern Motorway. When completed,

the development will have a total of 238

homes, with 40 per cent of them priced

below $400,000.

Residents from these developments,

and other sub-divisions further west, such

as Longhurst and Knights Stream Park in

Halswell will potentially bring hundreds

more customers into the Hornby retail

and business area, contributing to its

continuing growth, Mr Davis says.

It is almost forty years ago that Michael

Turner trained as a hairdresser, learning the

skills of the trade while working in London

and France.

In 1993, Michael moved to Perth in Western

Australia where he set up a salon at Murdoch

University, before establishing an up-market full

service salon at Mount Lawley in Perth.

Michael has always loved hairdressing. His

enthusiasm and expertise led to his appointment as

the Director of the International Hair Stylists Society

in Australia, and board member on the Hairdressers

Registration Board and Hairdressers’ Guild in

Western Australia.

“Michael is a passionate hairdresser who gets

twitchy if he doesn’t cut hair for two days,” laughs his

wife, Angela.

When the couple’s daughter, met and married

a New Zealander, Angela and Michael had no

intention of living in this country. However, nine

years of travelling between the two countries, to

spend time with the family, led to the decision to

move across the ditch.

“We love Christchurch and being close to our

family,” says Angela.

Michael worked within the Just Cuts organisation

until the opportunity arose this year for the couple

to purchase a Just Cuts franchise. At the end of

July, they opened Just Cuts Hornby, specialists in

haircuts.

As owner operators, Angela takes care of the

operational side of the business and Michael is Team

Leader on the salon floor. This allows Michael to do

what he loves – cutting hair. He also uses his talents

and experience to ensure an efficiently run salon.

Michael is passionate about hair and the industry,

striving for excellence with every client’s haircut.

“Finding a hairdresser who can cut properly is

not always easy,” explains Michael who takes time to

pass on his knowledge to all his staff so they add to

their skill base.

In Australia, Michael and Angela took on

hairdressing apprentices. Michael has a Certificate

for Hairdresser Training so as the business grows

they plan to train their own hairdressers.

Michael and his team are fully trained in hair care

products too with the salon stocking the Justice hair

product range. This is exclusive to Just Cuts and

includes shampoos, conditioners, hair treatments

and hair grooming products. These are affordably

priced yet high quality so extremely good for the

hair and they are not tested on animals.

Angela and Michael stress the importance of

using the right hair product to ensure healthy hair.

If keen to look after your hair or you have a concern

about your hair or scalp, pop in and have a chat with

Michael or one of the team. They can offer technical

advice and recommend a suitable product for each

hair and scalp condition.

Just Cuts is located in the beautifully modernised

Hornby Hub, at shop 50 which is close to Farmers.

MAZDA

Price $57,295

Dimensions Length, 5365mm; width,

1850mm; height, 1821mm

Configuration Five-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

3198cc, 147kW, 470Nm,

six-speed automatic.

Performance 0-100km/h, 9.6sec

Fuel Usage 9.2l/100km

When you look at all the

product Mazda has to

offer new car buyers,

especially here in

New Zealand, there’s one vehicle which

looks out of place – that is the BT50

light commercial ute.

I say that because Mazda has a huge

manufacturing emphasis on cars and

sport utility vehicles, and the line-up it

has now is focused heavily on providing

buyers with quality product fit for

purpose.

Nevertheless, to be profitable and

competitive in today’s global market,

companies which have utility vehicles

are experiencing a buoyancy like never

before, more so here in New Zealand.

Last year Ford’s Ranger utility was the

biggest selling vehicle overall, and that has

never happened in this country before.

Mazda have capitalised on Ranger’s

success as well, the BT50 is a sister

vehicle; while the shape is different, the

platform and engine are the same.

BY ROSS KIDDIE

The BT50 has just had a substantial

upgrade both outside and inside. Major

exterior changes include a new grille

and lights up front, while rear tail light

assemblies have had significant garnish

changes. Inside, there are new seat

coverings, and an upgrade on the plastic

trim elements.

According to Mazda the changes give

the BT50 a more aggressive, muscular

look and by my reckoning, it is still

one of the best looking utes in the New

Zealand market.

Elsewhere, the BT50 is much the

same rugged ute as it ever has been. It

lands in a range of 13 variants priced

from $35,295 to $57,295. All have a

3.2-litre five-cylinder engine, and there

are the usual choices between single

cab, Freestyle cab and double-cab, two

and four-wheel-drive. And there are

options between manual or automatic

transmission, although it’s fair to say,

most are autos.

The test vehicle was the range topping

GSX double cab automatic. Incidentally,

that model with manual transmission is

available at $55,295.

I’ve often written about how much I

enjoy five-cylinder engines, they have

a characteristic of their own, and in the

BT50, it stands out for its smooth and

rattle-free operation.

It is a twin-camshaft, 20-valve unit

which is rated at 147kW and 470Nm,

it is a high technology engine which

offers low maintenance costs thanks to a

new capped price servicing initiative by

Mazda New Zealand.

It also has the benefit of low fuel usage.

Mazda claim a 9.2-litre per 100km

(31mpg) combined cycle average for

the BT50. My time with the test vehicle

constantly listed around 10l/100km

(28mpg) with an instantaneous figure

of 7.7l/100km (36mpg) available at a

100km/h cruise (engine speed 1800rpm).

Power is harnessed seamlessly through

the six-speeder. The ratios are a wide

spread of what is required for low range

work as well as broadening to promote

those satisfactory fuel usage figures. The

driveline is smooth, hiding well the tough

mechanical elements that have high

demands, such as a 3500kg towing figure.

Naturally, the four-wheel-drive system

has a low ratio transfer case, it can be

manipulated by a console-mounted

switch. I didn’t do a lot of off-road work,

but I did tackle a long shingle incline

deep in the Malvern Hills. The BT50 is

in its element on rutted road surfaces,

the suspension is supple, dealing to

bumps and corrugations, and providing

a cushioned ride.

Bearing in mind that the BT50 still

has a leaf-spring located live rear axle,

the suspension engineers have done well

to create the civilised ride along with

the load bearing properties needed in

the traditional ute. The BT50 also gets

a high ground clearance of 237mm,

which means cross-country travel can be

tackled with confidence.

The BT50 is at home on the seal as it

is off-road. I took the test car on a long

highway drive and it is relaxing and

inviting to drive. Such is the civilised way

it rides, it is easy to head into a corner

with more speed on than realised, so it

must be remembered there are some

cornering limitations.

In terms of on-road performance,

a standstill to 100km/h time of 9.6sec

is pretty useful for a big, heavy vehicle

which weighs in at just over two-tonne.

With the mid-range torque figure it will

also blast thorough a highway overtake

without effort.

Well-known business pleased to be back in Hornby

After nearly a decade away, one of

Christchurch’s most well-known

motor vehicle parts businesses

has returned to Hornby.

As of September 1, Butler Auto Mart

is back trading in its Brynley Street

premises, from where it had previously

operated for 20 years.

Managing director of the family owned

and operated business, Tony Butler, says

over the past nine-plus years he has been

approached by many Hornby locals asking

store manager Edward Butler, who has

been working in the industry for some 20

years and has a well-established reputation

for his knowledge and expertise.

“We sell the things that make the car run,

like engine parts and wheel bearings, our

range is very extensive, and we can source

anything, nationwide and worldwide.

“If something a customer wants is not in

stock we will go to any lengths necessary

to find it. Our customers quickly realise

that they do not need to shop around

for the business to return, and after careful

consideration it was decided to move back

to a “booming Hornby”.

The building at 4 Brynley Street, which

the Butlers own, has been extensively

renovated over the last three months and

stocked with an extensive range of auto

parts brought in from its other branches,

which were bursting at the seams.

“We specialise in car parts for all makes

and models, particularly classic cars. We

can supply parts for cars from the early

1900 models up to the present day,” says

– if it is available we will get it at the

best possible price; if we can’t get what

our customer wants, then it will not be

available anywhere,” Edward says.

“Customers just need to leave their phone

number and we will get back to them.”

Butler Auto Mart has two other

branches in Christchurch – 407 Colombo

St, Sydenham and The Super Store at 261

Stanmore Road, Richmond, which started

in 1975.

“We are very pleased to be back in

Hornby,” Edward says.

Project offers affordable homes

for rent and purchase

An innovative Christchurch

housing project is being

developed in Lesley Keast

Place Hornby. A collaborative

partnership between the New Zealand

Housing Foundation, Salvation Army,

Abbeyfield, Housing Plus Charitable

Trust, the Rata Foundation, Christchurch

City Council and Government its aim

is to provide new, affordable living

accommodation for low-income single

people and families, both for rent and

purchase.

The project has seen a number

of properties being completed and

occupied over the last year or so and

there are more to come.

“The whole concept for the

development is about creating a

community with a mix of incomes and

ages, so there’s a balance,” says project

manager for the New Zealand Housing

Foundation in Christchurch, Bill King.

Constructed on behalf of the

nationwide Abbeyfield New Zealand

organisation, Abbeyfield House at

number 6 Lesley Keast Place, was opened

in November 2015. A communal-style

accommodation facility comprising

12 studios, each with en-suite, it is

especially suited to older people who are

on their own – either single or widowed,

and want to keep some independence

while having company around when

they feel they need it.

The development was planned prior

to the Christchurch earthquakes and

wasn’t built in response to those events,

Mr King says. However, with the quakes

creating an increase in housing demand

from across the city, all 12 studios were

taken up promptly, and there is a long

waiting list.

Also part of the Hornby development

are eleven smaller homes, which will be

constructed as rental properties for the

Housing Plus Charitable Trust and will

be completed and occupied by the end

of 2017.

A key plank of the Housing

Foundation’s programme is the shared

SPring iS

ownership model, which was launched

in Auckland nine years ago. Brand-new

three- and four-bedroom homes are built

on the basis that the occupants purchase

a share in the home in conjunction with

the foundation.

“The share they take will depend on

what they can afford. For example, the

purchasers may take a 75 per cent share

and the charitable trust the other 25 per

cent,” Mr King says.

“The scheme is aimed at families who

can’t quite make it in terms of raising a

sufficient deposit or afford repayments

on a full bank mortgage. They have the

opportunity to eventually purchase their

homes outright.”

The foundation has built five of

these three and four-bedroom homes

in Hornby for first-home buyers, and

the contract has just been let to build

a further five, which will be due for

completion in March/April 2017, Mr

King says.

In order to inform local communities

about the opportunities for potential

home ownership being provided, the

foundation contacts larger employers

and other organisations to let them know

when developments are coming up, and

this approach has brought a positive

response, he says.

Further along Lesley Keast Place are

10 Salvation Army houses that were

delivered for the organisation by the

Housing Foundation.

These new, two and three-bedroom

homes are occupied by people that

were affected by the earthquakes and

fulfilled the Salvation Army’s social

housing criteria, acting manager for the

Salvation Army’s social housing, Greg

Coyle says.

“It’s a mixed group and the idea is for

them to develop a sense of community

by getting to know each other and

support each other,” Mr Coyle says.

“And if any of them get into social

difficulty or distress, the Salvation Army

can bring its considerable experience in

to help the situation.”

Business park bringing jobs and growth to Hornby

LEFT TO RIGHT Artist’s impression of how Islington Square will look / Waterloo BP Lot 110 / Recreational facilities for community use are included in the new business park development.

An integral part of the Hornby

community, Hornby High

School, which opened in

1975, is itself about to undergo

significant developments.

All the present school buildings, apart

from the auditorium and music school,

which will have a facelift, are to be

demolished and replaced with a brandnew

complex of buildings. Work on

the $24-million project is due to start

in March/April 2017 with completion

expected in late 2018.

The development of a new business

park in the heart of Hornby is bringing

a new era of employment and business

activity to the area, while retaining

elements of its rich and colourful history

– the Waterloo Business Park is located

on the site once occupied by the Islington

Freezing Works and there are plans to

incorporate some of its Victorian-era

buildings within the new complex.

Construction activity got underway

in 2013; however, the concept for

the park was well over a decade in

the planning, assistant development

manager Joel Webber says. During

that time, community engagement,

participation and integration were key

considerations in the evolution, planning

and development of Waterloo Business

Park, he says.

The park will have a total of 104 lots of

development land, and once completed

will be home to around 100 individual

businesses, including retail.

“Sub-division of development land

is due to be completed by mid-2017,

while our convenience-retail focused

development, Islington Square, on the

site of the old Islington meat processing

plant will be constructed and delivered

in phases over an additional two to five

years,” Mr Webber says.

The typical profile of businesses that

have committed to Waterloo Business

Park are well-established, owneroccupier

businesses, Mr Webber says,

with a number having bought multiple

lots and consolidated them into single

lots for their specific requirements.

These include Hamilton Jet, which has

consolidated five lots into one lot of 7.5ha,

Connetics, which has consolidated three

lots into one lot of 5.5ha and Cardinal

Logistics, which has consolidated four

lots into one lot of 2.5ha.

“We have noticed that the majority of

the businesses that have committed to

Waterloo Business Park are dominated

by freight/logistics/distribution, light

manufacturing and food production

industries.

“As a sub-set of those businesses,

we’re seeing strong trends representing

businesses that are relocating from

Christchurch’s eastern industrial areas

to take advantage of such factors as the

superior geotechnical ground conditions

in the wider Hornby area, the strong

growth in Christchurch’s western corridor

and the superior roading infrastructure,

vehicular access and proximity to both

Christchurch International Airport and

Lyttelton Port.

“We are also seeing strong interest from

businesses that are outgrowing premises

in the immediate area. They have a high

degree of confidence and comfort in the

broader Hornby industrial catchment and

will only consider relocating within its

confines.”

Mr Webber acknowledges Hornby’s

transition from traditional primary

industries into a more services-oriented

model, as is reflected in the take-up at the

business park.

PROUD TO BE PART OF THE

CHANGING FACE OF HORNBY


WESTERN NEWS Tuesday September 20 2016 27

Building a unique house is affordable

Myles Laing started working

on building sites at the age of

fourteen, helping his father

clean up rubbish, lift materials

and carry out other basic jobs. Over time,

he picked up many tricks of the trade.

Myles has always had a passion for

building and creating unique designs and

initially wished to become an architect.

After leaving school, he decided to put

his efforts into the more practical side of

building by completing an apprenticeship

in carpentry, gaining experience by

working for one of Christchurch’s most

prestigious architectural building firms.

“I was able to work on a number of

architectural buildings and although

many were stunning, they would be

unaffordable for many people. I wanted

to provide uniquely designed homes that

would stand out from other houses but

without the huge price tag that would

normally go with them.”

Myles decided to join the family

business, Laing Properties, ultimately

creating the Myles Laing brand. This

fitted with other initiatives the parent

company was engaged in, while

broadening its range of services offered

in the marketplace.

Two years ago, Myles created the

Decisive range of simplistic modern

designs consisting of affordable

architecturally designed homes. In the

middle of this year, the Eminent range

was introduced which reflects sleek

modern designs with a traditional spin.

Both ranges are appealing with an

efficient use of space while capitalising

on the opportunity for outdoor living.

Along with loving the design process

and building element, Myles really enjoys

working with clients, adding suggestions

and more importantly listening to what

they want.

“While I like creating something

different and not the norm, it’s what the

client wants that’s important, something

that is very easy to achieve if you listen

to them,” adds Myles.

Myles’ technical background is an

added strength. He can draw from the

client exactly what they need and would

like, helping him to come up with a

concept they really love and that fits

with their budget. Rather than the client

engaging an architect directly to produce

a design that could be way out of their

financial reach, he is able to work a

design that will suit them.

As Construction Manager for Laing

Properties, Myles project manages the

houses built under the Myles Laing

brand, ensuring quality workmanship

and involving the clients throughout the

process so there are no surprises, and

clients are completely satisfied.

The company builds across Canterbury

with a steady increase in builds in the

Selwyn district.

If you would like to talk to Myles about

how he can create a unique and striking

house design for you, he can be contacted

Looking

good at

IT’S FUN to strut your stuff

and have a good time at the

races, but as Vania Bailey says,

don’t forget etiquette.

“You don’t want to be a show

pony. You need to look polished

but most importantly you need

to feel comfortable in your own

skin.

“Don’t reveal too much.

Remember the rules – if you

are showing off a bit of cleavage

then wear a longer skirt. If you

have a long split in your dress

don’t show off your chest. Don’t

have everything on show – be

discreet.

“Accessories are important to

pull your outfit together – shoes,

short gloves and a matching

fascinator or hat.

“If you are going to wear

something fitted make sure you

wear the right garments underneath

so there are no outlines or

bumps.

“If you decide on a spray tan,

have a trial a few weeks before.

You don’t want to turn orange

on the day. Book your hair, nails

and makeup in advance.”

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

Breaking the language

barrier for tennis players

IN A first for tennis in

Canterbury, Waimairi

Tennis Club will offer

two novel coaching

programmes this summer

– one conducted in

Mandarin and the other

for pre-schoolers.

Club senior coach Adam

Gard’ner, who has some

Chinese Mandarin skills,

saw an opportunity for

Christchurch’s expanding

Mandarin-speaking community

to get involved in

tennis.

“Many new people to the

city are looking for ways

to meet up with others to

have fun and to exercise

and this programme will

provide exactly those opportunities.

It’s a ‘learn to

play programme’ and it is

based on Tennis New Zealand’s

‘Tennis Xpress’ programme

for learners and

intermediate level players.

The big difference, though,

is that it will be delivered

predominantly in the

Mandarin language,” said

Gard’ner.

Shanghai, China, was

home to Gard’ner and his

family for 12 years while

he was involved in tennis

management at the Shanghai

Racquet Club and

coach development with

the Professional Tennis

Registry.

“There’s a real passion

for tennis in China and

players like Li Na are like

superstars. We’re sure that

local Mandarin speakers

will be just as enthusiastic

about our programme,”

said Gard’ner.

Waimairi Tennis Club

president Lloyd Russell

said the idea to introduce

the Mandarin-speaking

coaching is a fantastic opportunity

for the club.

“Having Adam with his

Mandarin language skills

programme will be a hit

Waimairi Tennis Club

will also offer a new Tennis

programme this summer.

Russell said it will provide

three to five-year-olds with

an eight-session introductory

programme that

focuses on fundamental

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Research

Supports

Eye Health

Nutritional researchers have discovered a range

of nutrients that are essential for eye health. Some

of the most essential nutrients that have been

shown to protect and even improve eye function

are:

Selenium, is a trace mineral that is low in

N.Z. soils and therefore in many of our foods.

Researchers believe selenium may help prevent

cataracts, macular degeneration (the leading cause

of impaired vision in older people) and may also

improve dry eyes and general eye health.

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage of the

population are low in. Zinc has been shown to

help protect the eyes from the damaging effects

of light as well as slow vision loss due to macular

degeneration.

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Beta-carotene

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper have potent

antioxidant ability and help protect the eyes from

damage

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing nutrients

that have been shown in landmark research to

not only provide potent eye protection but may

even help reverse some of the signs of age-related

macular degeneration (AMD).

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in potent

antioxidants may help protect the lens and retina

from damage and reduce the risk of cataracts. They

also may help improve blood supply to the eye,

strengthen the small capillaries of the eye and may

help improve night vision, may alleviate many eye

ailments including eye fatigue that may be caused

by reading, driving and computers.

Eyebright may help normalise eye pressure and

reduce eye allergies.

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential for

correct eye function. It may also have a detoxifying

affect on the eye.

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye fatigue,

bloodshot eyes and maintain good vision.

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection. It

provides many nutrients, is rich in oligomeric

proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) that are potent

antioxidants that may protect eyesight.

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic amount

should provide comprehensive eye protection, may

slow and possibly even help reverse eye damage

that could lead to loss of vision. All these nutrients

are available in an economical one a day easy to

swallow capsule.

Researchers found it:

• Helps stop fat being made & stored in the body

• Suppresses appetite & cravings. Feel fuller for longer

Care For Your Joints

They’re critical to remain

healthy and mobile

Refuse to accept joint pain and stiffness as part of life. Do

the work to maintain and support your joints to get the

best out of them for as long as possible.

Research from Johns Hopkins

University confirms that in the

treatment of arthritis, exercise and

physical activity has many benefits.

• Regular exercise helps keep

muscles around the joints strong,

decrease bone loss and control joint

swelling and pain.

• Strengthening the muscles

surrounding affected joints helps

to relieve pressure on the joint and

cartilage.

• Regular exercise helps replenish

lubrication of the joint cartilage and

reduces stiffness and pain.

• Lack of physical activity is

associated with increased muscle

weakness, joint stiffness, reduced

range of motion and fatigue

• Exercise needs to be directed at

the entire body and not just the joints

that are affected with arthritis.

The golden rule for joint health -

Keep moving!

The more you move

the less pain and

stiffness you will have.

A Gut Feeling

Digestive health is becoming increasingly important

for improving our overall wellbeing. As there is a

distinct connection between our tummy and our

moods, immunity and even our behaviours, it pays

to follow your gut if you feel out of sorts with

these nutritional enhancer

Dietary fibre is made up of

three types and each play a

different role throughout the

digestive tract. It’s often a

case of balancing them all and not only

supplementing with just one. To ensure

you get enough fibre in your diet: women

should aim for 25 grams to 30 grams

and men 30 grams to 38 grams each day.

Soluble fibre are found in oats, psyllium,

vegetables, fruits with their skin on and

supplements like Metamucil. Insoluble

fibre can be found in wheat bran pasta

and quinoa. Resistant starch is contained

in cold cooked pasta, potatoes and firm,

fresh bananas.

Probiotics and prebiotic foods can help

keep the correct pH balance(acidity to

alkalinity) in our intestines. These ‘good’

bacteria assist with breaking down fibre

in the bowel and produce healthy stool

movements. Probiotics can be found in

supplements, cultured yoghurt, kombucha

drinks and fermented vegetables. Prebiotic

foods are Jerusalem artichokes and raw

garlic, leeks and onions.

Poor gut health could be caused by,

but not limited to, high stress levels,

caffeine, smoking or inadequate water

consumption. If you suffer from prolonged

periods of reflux, constipation, diarrhoea

or cramping and nausea, seek medical

advice. Your doctor may help identify

possible intolerances or allergies.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Effective treatment for many

types of pain

Complementary medicine is becoming

increasingly sought after in New Zealand

as people become aware of the many

different methods of treating pain and ill

health that are available here.

Christchurch-based Chinese health

practitioner Lan Xiao has developed a

method of treatment, which she says has

as an immediate affect on a wide variety of

pains and health conditions. It is known

as ‘acupuncture without needles’.

Lan describes it as being similar to

reflexology in that the problem area on

the body is determined through pressure,

but is much more accurate.

Trained as a medical practitioner in

China, Lan came to New Zealand in 1992

and began practising acupuncture in

1995. From that discipline she created her

acupuncture without needles, and uses

it to treat people of all ages with many

different types of pain in all parts of the

body. This can include arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury.

“For example, the treatment has been

very successful for people who have

painful joints caused by arthritis,” Lan

says.

Acupuncture without needles is also

effective in restoring energy levels,

she says.

“As people age their energy is reduced,

and this can lead to other health

problems. The acupuncture without

needles treatment is like the body’s

battery being charged up again, so their

energy levels are restored, which in turn

helps overcome their health problems.”

Lan also uses it to treat depression

and anxiety, and says it can help with

addiction problems as well.

“After the treatment the person has no

cravings – because it treats the cause of

the addiction.”

She says the results are immediate,

though people may need several

treatments, depending on the extent

of their health problem, and while it

is slightly painful for few moments,

everyone can tolerate it.

Lan Xiao’s website, www.

drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes

videos of people whose health problems

have been overcome after receiving the

treatment.

Her clinic is located at 108 Sawyers

Arms Road, and her hours are Monday,

Wednesday and Friday from 12pm to

5pm. To discuss your health issues or

make an appointment, phone 323 4168

or 027 231 8388.

Lan describes it as

problem area on the

body is determined

through pressure, but

is much more accurate.

Enjoy unique shopping to be found at Women’s Expo

With over 200 sites to browse, unique businesses to discover,

shopping, bargains and laughter, the Expo is the ultimate day

out for every woman.

One of the appeals the Expo has to

visitors is the variety of companies

involved with everything from

jewellery and shoes to activewear

and fitness to skincare and health

products to gourmet food and wine

and even a company offering plantbased

cooking classes for Kids &

Adults. There really is something for

everyone and all ages.

Renee Murray from NZME Events,

organiser of the Expo says “Our

aim is to have as wide of a range

of companies involved with the

Expo as possible. Women are all

different and their individual interests

are so diverse. One woman

may love the latest in makeup or

skincare but the woman beside

her may be more interested in

cycling the Otago Central Rail Trail

or sampling handmade cheese.

It’s great on the weekend to see

all the various women visit the

show, from teenagers to business

women, mothers to grandmothers

and friends simply enjoying each

other’s company. It’s becoming

more common for us to see three

generations visit the Expo together

as well, with the daughter, mother

and grandmother all enjoying the

show and spending the day with

each other.”

Brandhouse will exhibit at the Expo

for the first time with their range of

champagne, vodka, port and wines.

Popular at other Expo’s this year

has been the Royal Dragon’s elite

flavour vodka collection with some

flavours selling out. Introducing

the most tantalizing and unique

flavoured vodka collection of its time

flavours include Watermelon, Green

Apple, Passion Fruit, Chocolate and

Lychee… A great vodka collection

to enjoy neat, on the rocks or in

your favourite cocktail! Visit the

large Brandhouse site at the show

to sample from their fabulous range

and take home what you love.

Christinz Clothing will visit the show

for the first time, travelling from

Balclutha to showcase her selection

of Designer Clothing including;

pants, stunning tops, skirts, base

layers and jackets. A popular

item are her batwing sleeve tops with a

flattering shape through front to suit all

sizes and with pink, gold, navy, black

and silver in the colour range these tops

look great with jeans, skirts or leggings.

Christinz Clothing are located in the Expo

Fashion Zone.

The High Protein Breakfast Company

will travel all the way from Auckland with

their exclusive High Protein Muesli. Not

available in store yet this range of muesli

not only tastes great but helps with weight

management, health and fitness. Without

many of the sugars or fillers that so many

processed breakfast foods contain these

mueslis will keep you fuller for longer and

with flavours including

Berry, Peach &

Nectarine and Feijoa

you will want to buy

them all. Visit the High

Protein Breakfast

Company in the Expo
