Cemetery

for quake

victims

won’t be

renamed

• By Emily O’Connell

A PUSH to have Avonhead Park

Cemetery renamed to reflect its

significance as the final resting

place of earthquake victims has

come to a halt.

The Friends of Avonhead

Cemetery group has been

lobbying to have the name

changed to the Avonhead

Memorial Cemetery.

Four people who died in the

CTV Building collapse and 20

others who lost their lives in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake,

are buried in the cemetery.

But a city council report has

found the cemetery can’t be

renamed. Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

chairman David Cartwright said

the cemetery doesn’t meet the

criteria.

“What would trigger a site or

location to be named a memorial,

in this particular case, doesn’t

trigger that,” he said.

He said the official memorial for

earthquake victims is on Oxford

Tce.

FOAC chairman Clive Paris

said the group was not surprised

at the response from city council

staff.

WESTERN NEWS

News..................................... 3-11

THE FRIENDS of Avonhead

Cemetery spokesman Clive Paris

doesn’t pull any punches (see

page 1) over the decision not to

include the name memorial in the

cemetery’s name.

The issue is whether to add

memorial to take into account the

2011 earthquake victims who are

interned there has been ongoing

for a long time.

But now the city council has

made a decision that adding the

name doesn’t meet required criteria

for cemeteries.

But Clive isn’t impressed: “They

(city council) have always had

a backward looking mentality

when approaching ideas or issues

and tend to go into defence mode

rather than looking at the issue

and responding positively.”

Good to see Tongan league

star Tuimoala Lolohea drop into

Hornby last week (page 4).

They’ll need to be at their best

to beat England this weekend.

Pensioners plead for help

• By Emily O’Connell

REST HOME residents are again

pleading for noisy trucks to be

banned from Lodestar Ave.

A Lady Wigram Retirement

Village resident wrote a letter to

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board which was

discussed last week.

The letter was asking for action

to be taken so they could enjoy

some “peace

and quiet.”

Halswell

Ward city

councillor

Anne

Galloway

(left) asked the

board what

more they could do to support

the progress.

Community board chairman

Mike Mora said they are supporting

the progress by receiving

the letter and referring it to city

council staff for feedback.

Cr Galloway said the Lady

Wigram residents are “very

upset with how the issue has

transpired.”

The Traffic and Parking Bylaw

2017, which would give the city

council the ability to restrict

heavy vehicles on certain roads,

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

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

will go to the city council on

Thursday for approval.

If the bylaw is approved, the city

council will then consider placing

a restriction on Lodestar Ave.

When asked again this week

by Western News whether she

will push for heavy trucks to

be stopped, Cr Galloway would

only say she’s been working with

Wigram MP Megan Woods and

city council staff “to address the

concerns of all the residents who

are impacted.”

“I’ve reassured residents

through emails, phone calls

and visits that I am taking the

concerns seriously and will be

using all tools available to us to

manage these,” she said.

Three weeks ago Cr Galloway

told Western News she doubted

the new bylaw will be of any use.

“It seems that speed is the issue

and the recommendation is for

police to get more involved in

monitoring this,” Cr Galloway

said.

But then Cr Galloway

tempered her stance, sending

Western News an email saying

the bylaw can work.

“There definitely is still hope

that it can be used to prevent

heavy trucks along Lodestar.

Staff cannot consider it as an

option until it is passed,” Cr

Galloway said.

Last week Cr Galloway said

she’s thrilled “things are moving

so quickly” and she hopes the

bylaw is passed.

She said the city council’s

Heavy Vehicle Parking in Residential

Area Policy is another

tool which can be used to address

the Lodestar Ave situation.

Lady Wigram Retirement

Village residents said they get

woken up at 4.30am.

Retirement village residents

have been lobbying since April

when they met with Cr Galloway

and Dr Woods asking for a bylaw

to stop trucks being allowed to

drive through Lodestar Ave.

It’s a short cut to work sites in

the area.

Concerns in Yaldhurst

WESTERN NEWS

Yaldhurst

Residents

Association

chairwoman

Sara

Harnett-

Kikstra talks

about what’s

happening in

the area

What’s happening in Yaldhurst?

Plenty of noise, a plethora of

new quarries in a rural zone, a

plethora of industrial activity in a

rural zone and plenty of stressed

residents.

The root of the problem is a

succession of district plans with

extremely permissive rules. There

are always consequences. While

the buzz word in the city is rebuild

and regenerate out on the fringes

of the city it is denigrate.

City council acting head of

resource consents John Gibson

said “the city council was aware of

concerns in the area and sought to

address them through a planning

and legal framework.”

Can he not comprehend that is

precisely what caused the problem,

a dysfunctional Resource

Management Act. Historically the

Resource Management Act looks

at every application in isolation,

in an ad hoc laissez faire style

and doesn’t appear to take into

account the cumulative effects of

an activity.

That is until the recent environment

court decision by Judge

Borthwick in Harewood Gravels,

city council versus Joint Action

Group. The application for resource

consent has been declined.

In this case Judge Borthwick

considered the cumulative effects

of the 300ha already consented

with the current application and

the absence of any specific study to

determine the level of quarrying

which is acceptable within this zone.

As an aside the court acknowledged

the impact on residents of

the development of quarrying in

this area and their felt sense of

frustration, at times, helplessness,

when responding to the applications

in respect of which they were

notified and their efforts to ‘police’

the compliance by neighbouring

quarries with the conditions of

their consents.

Harewood Gravels has now appealed

to the High Court.

The city council and Environment

Canterbury’s lack of action

is akin to “Caesar fiddling while

Rome burns.”

Inquiry into bus routes

• By Emily O’Connell

A DOUBLE-DECKER bus tour

company has agreed not to drive

through residential Riccarton

streets – but it has revealed a

shortcoming in transport laws.

Hassle-Free Tours had

planned to go through Rata,

Rimu and Titoki Sts on its new

route which started earlier this

month.

The city council was made

aware of the route when the tour

company made a request to create

a bus stop outside Westfield

Riccarton on Rotherham St.

An agreement was then made

to avoid those roads. However,

one bus driver accidentally

drove on residential streets in

Riccarton on the first day of the

new route.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairwoman

Helen Broughton said when the

tour company realised, it made a

“very nice” apology.

Mrs Broughton said she will

now look into the laws which

surround the issue.

She said not only is it a breach

of privacy, it’s also concerning

bus companies don’t have to seek

approval on their chosen routes.

City council manager of transport

operations Aaron Haymes

said the agreement relied on “the

good will” of the tour company.

He said the city council supported

the right to privacy of

residents. But he said streets

are public places and as long as

it’s within the bounds of traffic

regulations, there are no controls

on where buses can travel.

“Environment Canterbury

and the city council do, however,

consult on all public Metro bus

routes and bus stop locations,”

Mr Haymes said.

Riccarton Bush-Kilmarnock

Residents’ Association chairman

Tony Simons said residents

didn’t have a problem with the

tours in principle.

“We should be encouraging a

revitalised tourism industry in

Christchurch,” he said.

Mr Simons said the agreement

has met the association’s objections

and it is happy the issue

has been resolved. The proposed

bus stop would function from

9am to 5pm everyday and return

to normal car parking after

hours. The community board

will discuss the bus stop at its

meeting next month.

•From page 1

“They have always had a

backwards looking mentality

when approaching ideas or issues

and tend to go into defence

mode, rather than looking at the

issue and responding positively,”

he said.

The four people who

lost their lives in the

CTV Building and could

not be identified after

the quake were Shawn

Lucas, of Christchurch,

Elsa Torres De Frood,

of Peru, Rhea Mae

Sumalpong, of the

Philippines, and Veleri

Volnov, a Russian-born New

Zealand resident.

The cemetery features a large

circular memorial with a stone

dedication in the centre.

The central feature of the

memorial includes six plaques

with text in English, Filipino,

Maori, Russian, Spanish and

braille.

In a report to the community

board, city council senior

network planner parks Eric

Banks addressed some reasons

why the proposed name of

Avonhead Memorial Cemetery

won’t work.

He said no submissions

Cemetery for quake victims

were received during the

Mr Banks also said there could

be more confusion if multiple

cemeteries had “memorial” in

the name.

Mr Paris said the group

felt the issue had not been

resolved and it needed to

go back to the community

board.

“The city now has a

legacy to provide a safe

haven for the family

members and friends left

behind here forever,” he

said.

Mr Cartwright said the city

council report on the renaming

took a disappointing amount of

time.

“What you would think

would be a relatively straight

forward request for information

. . . has taken a little longer than

we would have hoped for an

answer,” he said.

Mr Cartwright said four or

five new signs will be placed near

the cemetery to help loved ones

locate it.

He also said there will be some

maintenance done to clean up

the cemetery.

ART: Addictions advocate Damian Holt is painting more murals on Brockworth Pl. ​

More murals for Brockworth Pl

• By Emily O’Connell

A RICCARTON man is

spending his spare time

transforming 35m of a blank

wall with a paint brush.

Addictions advocate Damian

Holt is painting more murals

along the railway walkway on

Brockworth Pl.

He started the job four years

ago, when he created nine murals

for the walkway.

Prior to that, the wall was littered

with graffiti.

Riccarton residents recently

helped clear some vine from the

wall to allow for more murals to

be painted.

Deans Ave Precinct Society

then asked Mr Holt if he would

do the job.

Mr Holt said he has completed

one of the new murals and is

currently working on the second,

and is drawing inspiration

from the paintings.

“The project lets me colour up

my neighbourhood,” Mr Holt

said.

THE HEI Hei Broomfield

Community Development Trust

will receive $4000 of community

board funding for stolen tae

kwon do equipment.

KIX Taekwondo Christchurch

is having to make do, with

students bringing in their own

gear, after about $3500 worth

of equipment was stolen out of

their shed in September.

The funding will come from

the community board’s 2017/18

Discretionary Response Fund.

Landlord Tracey Buunk said

the funding is a huge help and

it’s very important to locals.

The trust requested $4859

from the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

– which is just short of the total

$5659 needed.

Mrs Buunk said they have some

fundraising, including $400 from

their givealittle page, so they don’t

require the whole $5659.

Mrs Buunk said the price of

the equipment has increased,

meaning the $3500 of gear they

lost, is now worth closer to

$5000.

She said the equipment was

not insured by the club. And

because she didn’t know that,

it wasn’t listed separately under

her insurance which means if

she made a claim, the excess

would be $5000.

KIX Taekwondo Christchurch

instructor, Jupiter Bignotea said

the club was devastated after the

break-in.

“Basically what was taken was

the gear that we use every day.

We are a not-for-profit club so all

our funding is in the fees of the

students,” he said.

Forty-eight interlocking red

and blue mats, seven kick shields,

eight paddle target pads, 16 focus

punch pads, two medicine balls,

a first aid kit, one boxing punch

bag, two agility ladders, two sets

of elastic bands, skipping ropes,

personalised screens and a novelty

gong were stolen.

The trust and club will arrange

for a contract to be drawn up so

the equipment can be bought

from the trust if the club change

location.

Mrs Buunk said the security

has been upped on the storage

containers and property.

BURNSIDE High School’s

dux and this year’s recipient

of the Peter Bryant

Memorial Award was Justine

Lee.

Her time at the school

included an extremely wide

ranging involvement in

extra-curricular activities,

proving herself to be a talented

musician with involvement

in Big Sing, Senior

Chorale and Bel Canto.

She offered her time

in school service as a year

9 student support prefect,

as an international student

leader and as an academic

mentor. From an early age,

she excelled in mathematical

and problem-solving tasks.

This all-round talent has

obviously served her well

over her years at Burnside as

she has accumulated 21 first

places in subjects since year

9, and since starting NCEA

in 2015, has earned an excellence

endorsement in every

subject she has studied.

Justine is set to begin studies

in economics and finance

at Canterbury University.

The proxime accessit

award and medal was

awarded to Linda Wang.

She has proved to be

the stage in relation to

her academic excellence and,

to date, has accumulated

11 first places since starting

She has won additional

This year, Linda served as

She will now study biomedical

SUCCESS: St Thomas of Canterbury College teachers (from left)

Dean Smith, Chris Leader, Tim Muir, Robbie Lange, Jacob Allen, Paul

Friday.

Teachers run for men’s health

• By Emily O’Connell

WITH SUNSCREEN and water in

tow, eight St Thomas’ teachers took

on the Molesworth Run on Friday.

Due to a recent storm, this year’s

race from Molesworth station to

Hamner Springs was 23km shorter

than usual.

Chris Leader, Dean Smith, Hamish

Barclay, Paul Burton, Robbie

Lange, Richard Washington, Jacob

Allen and Tim Muir split into two

teams and competed against each

other in the 61.8km race.

So what inspired this venture?

Mr Leader said they joined forces

to raise money for men’s health.

“More specifically to raise funds

for prostate cancer, testicular cancer,

mental health and suicide prevention,”

he said.

Mr Leader said they are trying

to spread the message to the young

men at St Thomas’.

“We wanted to do some type of

activity to get our students to understand

the areas of suicide, mental

health and cancers which men don’t

usually talk about,” he said.

Mr Leader said suicide is a huge

issue with men and there’s a growing

problem with the mental health sector

in New Zealand.

The teachers have also been growing

facial hair as part of Movember.

Last year the teachers raised $2810

and they’re hoping to get about the

same this year.

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e

Warm greetings to the Hornby High School

community.

Last week we celebrated senior achievement with

our showcase Senior Prize-giving evening, and what

a celebration it was. We had, the week before, been

privileged to host a visit from the Prime Minister

The Right Honourable Jacinda Ardern, and at prize

giving we had the pleasure of the company of local

MP and now cabinet minister The Honourable

Dr Megan Woods who presented our special

prizes. There can be no doubt of the quality of the

achievement of our students. As we sat and listened

to the prize citations for our special prizewinners it

was very clear that these are amazing young people

determined to be the best they can, to do the best

they can, to change the world.

Speakers at the Prize-giving included Sam Johnson

(founder of the Student Volunteer Army) and each

speaker talked of the dreams and aspirations that

our young people should have. I gave some specific

advice that I’d heard earlier that day on the radio:

Fall in love with your dream, because if you do you’ll

find your true passion, and you’ll give up almost

anything to make it come true. Then anything

is possible. Some of our many prizewinners are

featured on this page.

One last thought for the year: The final day of the

school year shouldn’t signal an end to learning.

Students experience a significant “summer slump”

in their learning over the January period. Learning

should not stop because classes have finished.

Keep your tamariki reading. Get them to enter the

“summer learning journey” (more information soon),

get them entering a summer blogging competition.

Let’s not lose the amazing gains that our kids have

made during the year, let’s not undo the good they

have done with their hard work.

Please follow my thinking on issues that are both

specific to Hornby High School and also of more

general educational interest on my Principal’s

blog “Whakatauki: He waka eke noa”, after

all, we are indeed all in this together – https://

RYMAN HEALTHCARE

Retirement village offers quality care & great companionship

Village manager Liz Hampton, left, with Denis Hubbard, Joy Millar, Beryl Anstiss, Thelma Branthwaite and

Peggy Wigg ready to watch the Melbourne Cup. These serviced apartment residents love their Woodcote

lifestyle – Thelma says moving there changed her life.

Recognised as one of New Zealand’s leading retirement

village operations, the Ryman model of quality retirement

living began over 30 years ago right here in Christchurch at

Woodcote Retirement Village, Hornby.

Founder Kevin Hickman, a retired police officer, had been

disappointed with retirement facilities he had seen, so decided

to set up Woodcote in a former motel complex.

As village manager Liz Hampton explains, Kevin’s mantra

was “It’s got to be good enough for mum” and she says this still

holds true today at Woodcote.

One of the smaller Ryman villages, the boutique-style

Woodcote Retirement Village offers a 50-bed rest home, as

well as seven serviced apartments and 18 townhouses – all

set in gorgeous grounds with mature trees and shrubs and

meticulously maintained lawn and garden areas.

“Our quiet location gives it almost a rural feel, so it’s peaceful

and relaxing for our residents,” Liz says.

For the rest home residents, their healthcare is overseen by

clinical manager Jacky Fitzsimon. Her role includes general

nursing care, dispensing medications and arranging doctors’

appointments, while the rest home staff, with their warm and

gentle manner, ensure the residents’ day-to-day needs are

taken care of.

Like all Ryman villages, Woodcote has joined the computer

age by going paperless with Ryman’s new myRyman app, Liz

says. Residents’ information is now online, with staff accessing

it on a surface (tablet) in the individual resident’s room.

“This saves a lot of time and means the information is

right there at the staff members’ fingertips, so then they can

spend more time with the residents, rather than dealing with

paperwork,” Liz says, “plus it saves the trees.”

Just a week after moving into Woodcote, new rest home

resident Isobel Marsh is starting to settle in and feel at home.

She says during her working life in the healthcare sector

she had heard some of the city’s retirement villages being

discussed, with Woodcote described as “the best retirement

village in Hornby”.

Dallas Proctor, left, with her mother Isobel Marsh,

who has just moved into Woodcote.

Isobel’s son and daughter had begun looking at retirement

villages for her earlier this year, and daughter Dallas says

Woodcote had a “good feel about it”. Isobel says the staff are

“lovely, very friendly and very caring”. She is looking forward

to getting involved in the various activities, and has already

played Housie.

Roy and Gwyneth Bryden moved into Woodcote as rest

home residents six months ago. Gwyneth admits she found it

a bit difficult at the start, but is very happy now, while Roy, on

the other hand, loved it straight away.

“It’s the friendliness of the staff, they are great, and everyone

speaks to you. The meals are great, too, there’s plenty of food.”

Roy also likes the fact that Woodcote is a smaller village,

with residents concerned about each other’s welfare.

“You don’t always get that in a bigger place,” he says.

Roy enjoys playing his keyboard and getting involved in

the men’s club, while Gwyneth has started a knitting group,

the Busy Bees, with up to 10 residents getting together on a

Saturday morning for a knitting session.

All the residents at Woodcote are free to take part in the

many activities and outings on offer. These include the

exclusive Ryman Triple A exercise programme, tailored for

residents’ differing levels of health and mobility.

In conjunction with Triple A, the Engage programme is

designed to keep residents stimulated and entertained. Run

by the two activities co-ordinators, it includes a wide range of

activities, entertainment and outings, such as shopping trips to

The Hub and dining out at restaurants.

There is live entertainment every week, while petanque,

indoor bowls, table tennis, darts and cards are available, as

well as a library and hair salon.

“We introduced table tennis at the suggestion of a resident,”

Liz says.

“It’s very important to us that the residents know that this

is their home, and that they feel in charge of their own space,

with their possessions in their rooms, and in charge of their

day.”

She says occasions such as Anzac Day, St Patrick’s Day and

Melbourne Cup day are celebrated, and residents receive a

bouquet from the Woodcote staff on special birthdays.

Liz enjoys seeing the residents settle in at Woodcote.

“They build their confidence, and their health improves.

They thrive here with the company and the stimulation.”

A key contributor to the residents’ wellbeing is the Ryman

Delicious menu, offering tasty, nutritious food prepared

by Woodcote’s own chef. The new summer menu has just

been launched, and includes traditional fare familiar to the

residents, and contemporary-style dishes.

Woodcote also offers short-term respite care, which often

leads to permanent residency, Liz says, when people discover

what a wonderful place it is.

“We are a very family-oriented village, and we put on special

events where family members are invited. We love having

the grandchildren and the great-grandchildren here for the

children’s party in January and we also have a village barbeque

in February and invite the families to come.”

With the festive season approaching, Woocote’s staff and

residents are looking forward to the Christmas celebrations.

“Because so many residents go out on Christmas Day,

we have a big Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and

entertainment the week before,” Liz says.

She welcomes enquiries from anyone considering a move

to the village. To make an appointment for a look round

Woodcote, phone 349 8788.

Rest home residents Roy & Gwyneth Bryden are very

happy living at the village.

Retirement living

and care at its best!

SCHOOLS

Robots tax the minds

CULTURE: One of Ilam School’s kapa haka groups taking the

stage last Thursday night at its Polyfest. ​

Diversification within

school celebrated

• By Emily O’Connell

ALL ASPECTS of Polynesia were

celebrated at Ilam School last

Thursday night.

The school’s annual Polyfest

saw about 300 people gather in

their hall for food, music and

dance.

Teacher and organiser Mick

Withers said the event was

inspired by the Christchchurch

Primary Schools Cultural Festival.

He said three years ago, Ilam

entered multiple teams in the

festival and they saw the need for

their own celebration.

Mr Withers said the highlight

was having parents get involved

in what they call the “Fruit

Haka.”

He said it’s always quite funny

because parents have to learn the

actions from the pupils.

Mr Withers said the night

was a relaxed celebration of the

different diversities within the

school.

He said Ilam’s junior and senior

kapa haka group both took to

the stage with various acts.

Mr Withers said each family

brought a plate of food to share

which represented their ethnicity.

• By Emily O’Connell

EIGHTY-EIGHT pupils, 69

pizzas and numerous robots

gathered in Russley School’s hall

for Robofest.

The lego robotics competition

is run by teachers for teachers

and their year 5 to 8 pupils.

Eleven different schools

throughout Canterbury, with 21

teams, competed at the festival.

Casebrook Intermediate

School’s Casebrook A+ finished

first with 480 points.

Russley School’s D-Day team

finished second with 360 points.

And in third St Martin

School’s Lump of Cheese had

335 points.

Russley School’s Yokosuna

team took out the Sumo King

competition.

Organiser Annette Ward said

the event was surprisingly quiet.

She said teams were too busy

problem-solving to make much

noise.

Mrs Ward said the competition

is different from most

because there are different challenges

each year.

“Nobody knows until competition

day . . . there are six different

challenges with a variety of

points available,” she said.

Mrs Ward said pupils have to

lead their robots on ramps, platforms

and through mazes.

She said pupils also have to

complete challenges using light,

touch and ultrasonic sensors.

“Teams have to decide what

challenges will be easier for

them to do to get the maximum

points,” Mrs Ward said.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Dilo Oil – The Remarkable

Skin Rejuvenator

Until Rachel

Hunter’s popular

TV series “TOUR

OF BEAUTY” Dilo

Oil was relatively

unknown, being one

of the best-kept secrets

of the Pacific Islands. It

may however be the number

one natural beauty oil available

as it possesses powerful natural skin

regeneration and healing properties.

According to ethnobotanist Chris

Kilham, Dilo (pronounced dee-lo)

Oil is a powerful skin regenerator as

it is one of the most effective agents

in promoting the regeneration and

formation of new tissue, thereby

accelerating wound healing and

the growth of healthy skin. Dilo

Oil is super-absorbing and can

penetrate all three layers of the

skin, offering exceptional cell

hydration and regeneration.

As well as this, Dilo Oil has

potent anti-inflammatory,

antimicrobial, antifungal and

antioxidant properties.

Traditionally, Dilo Oil is used to keep the

skin young and youthful and for just about

any skin complaint. Some of the conditions

for which it is considered helpful include

abrasions, cuts and cracks, acne and

acne scars, pimples, blemishes, stretch

marks, wrinkles, blisters, burns (including

chemical and radiation), diabetic sores,

rashes, shaving irritation, dry or scaly skin,

ACV SUPPORTS

• Healthy digestion, assimilation of nutrients, elimination of wastes

• Energy – Vitality – Endurance

• Elimination of viruses, bacteria, fungus & parasites

• Powerful antioxidant

• Cardiovascular health, blood flow & healthy blood pressure

• Diabetes – improves insulin sensitivity

• Arthritis & joint support • Longevity & improved health

• Settles the stomach & reduces reflux

• Weight Loss

eczema, psoriasis,

dermatitis, herpes

sores (cold-sores),

insect bites and

stings, rheumatism,

pain, sciatica,

shingles, sunburn,

rosacea, athlete’s foot, skin

eruptions, warts, skin ulcers

and sores, nappy rash and almost

any other skin ailment and often with

incredible results.

Many beauty and skincare products

on the market today contain unnatural

ingredients that can be toxic and may

even contribute to disease. Generally

the benefits are exaggerated

and often only temporary or

camouflage. Marshall’s Dilo Oil is

100% pure and certified organic.

It has been cold-pressed from the

Dilo nut and contains absolutely

no additives. Polynesians and

Southeast Asians have revered

Dilo Oil for centuries believing it

to be a sacred gift of nature and

the Gods. Dilo oil stimulates

and supports the skins natural

healing process through the growth of new

healthy skin tissue. I personally believe

it is a remarkable product and highly

recommend it to everyone. A 50ml bottle is

$19.90 and 100ml only $29.90.

Further information is available from

the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s

Health & Natural Therapy in New

Brighton. We are Always Happy to Help!

NATURAL HEALING & BEAUTY OIL

As seen on Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty

Revered for centuries by Polynesians & Southeast Asians for its remarkable

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

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

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

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

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

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

anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal & antioxidant properties.

Dilo Oil Supports

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

stretch marks

• Skin hydration

• Skin repair & growth, helps feed the skin & stimulate healthy new cells

• Wound healing & skin protection from bacteria, viruses & fungus

• Most skin problems, rosacea, pimples, ulcers & sores, acne, psoriasis,

eczema, dermatitis, rashes, blisters, skin eruptions, warts, insect bites &

stings, athlete’s foot, burns, nappy rash etc.

• Joint & muscular pain

Centuries old folk remedy

supports good health!

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an

array of powerful health benefits. It is none

other than the popular apple cider vinegar

or ACV. Since the time of Hippocrates –

the “Father of Medicine” – ACV has been

renowned for its curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS and

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis

reports how he found that Vermonters

who regularly consumed ACV and Honey

had excellent health with many putting in

a vigorous day’s work on the farm even

when well into their eighties.

He also noted the effects of

ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients

reporting almost total relief

after taking a course of the

mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised

that the acid and potassium

in cider vinegar counteracted

calcium deposits and helped

the body control calcium use.

He also noted that Vermonters

who consumed ACV and H

around meal time had excellent blood

pressure and circulation. The reason he

found was that protein foods thickened the

blood and vinegar thinned it. As the blood

thickens it cannot pass as easily and quickly

through the blood vessels and capillaries.

This poor blood flow would reduce cellular

health by limiting nutrients to the cells as

well as waste elimination from the cells.

To prevent cell damage the body naturally

increases blood pressure but this puts

more stress on the blood vessels, organs

ARE YOU READY

TO DOWNSIZE?

Paying rates for a house that’s

too big? Paying maintenance and

heating costs for space you don’t use?

A move to one of our

architecturally designed villas

at McKenzie Lifestyle Village in

Geraldine will cut those costs.

Three villas are available for

occupation now, priced from

$355,000.

and heart. Having ACV and H with meals

will help prevent protein raising the blood

pressure. It also contributes to a feeling

of greater well-being because the thinner

blood circulates quickly and more easily

through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found

regular consumption of CV and H to be

an excellent health tonic with numerous

health attributes.

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all

the goodness of the apple in a form that is

readily accepted by the body. Good health

starts with good digestion

and assimilation of nutrients.

ACV taken before food will

stimulate and promote healthy

digestion and assimilation of

vital nutrients for good health.

A well-functioning digestive

system helps prevent disease

by neutralising any toxic

substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not

all ACV is produced in the

traditional way and results are

likely to prove disappointing with these

other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV and ACV

with 20% Manuka Honey is produced in

Canterbury from Organic whole apples in

the traditional way. It is double strength so

you can use less.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

STRAWBERRY AND

MARSHMALLOW PARFAIT

Ingredients

½ cup Marshmallows, small

350g Sugar

500g Strawberries, hulled

6 Eggs, 4 yolks, 2 whole

2 cups Cream, thick

500g Strawberries, fresh, for

garnish

Directions

To prepare the tin, line a narrow

terrine mould about 30cm

x 10cm with plastic wrap. Set

some of the marshmallows along

the bottom with some strawberry

slices.

Place the strawberries in a

saucepan with half the sugar.

Bring to a gentle simmer over a

low heat. The juices will come

out, so there is no need to add

water. Simmer for no more

than 2min, then remove from

the heat and mash or purée the

mixture.

Return it to the pan and set

aside. Use an electric beater to

whisk the egg yolks and whole

eggs with the remaining sugar

until thick and mousse-like.

Return the strawberry and sugar

mixture to the heat and bring to

a simmer. With the beater still

running, tip this hot mixture

into the eggs and continue

whisking until it is really thick

and well incorporated. The hot

sugar and strawberries “cook”

the egg yolk, so it is not raw.

Whip the cream until it reaches

soft peaks, then fold it gently

through. Add the remaining

marshmallows to the mixture.

Spoon it into the prepared tin.

Cover with plastic wrap and

freeze for at least 24 hours. To

serve, cut the parfait into slices,

surround with sliced strawberries

and place in a cup.

HOW TO ROAST THE

PERFECT WHOLE LEG OF

LAMB

Whole leg of lamb

1-2 tbsp oil

Rock salt

Freshly ground black pepper

4-5 sprigs fresh rosemary

Take the lamb out of the fridge

30min before cooking to allow

it to come to room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 170 deg C.

Place a wire rack in a roasting

tray, place the lamb on the rack

and brush the meat with the oil

and then season with the rock

salt and freshly ground black

pepper.

Rub the lamb with the rosemary

sprigs leaving them in the

roasting dish. Place the meat into

the oven and roast at 160 deg C,

allowing 30min per 500g.

To test if the meat is cooked,

use a skewer to pierce the leg at

the thickest part, going through

to the bone. If the juices are clear,

the lamb is cooked.

Remove the lamb from the

oven, cover the meat with some

aluminum foil and then set the

lamb aside to rest, for approximately

15-20min. Carve the meat

and serve with your favourite

vegetables and plenty of gravy.

Love your dentures

Is it time to swap your generic denture appearance

for a beautiful, natural looking smile?

Internationally renowned dental

technician Richard Greenlees,

PGDipCDTech (University of Otago) of

Lovebite is the person to call.

His special point of difference is

rebuilding what he calls the Oral

Architecture, the structure and shape of

a patient’s face that is often lost following

years of wearing dentures.

Lovebite dentures address problems

that can arise due to years of the patient

wearing incorrectly fitting or poorly

functioning dentures, such as poor

occlusion (the way the teeth come

together), aesthetics, function and

hygiene.

An intricate knowledge and

understanding of facial features allows

Richard to return facial tissues back to the

correct position, reform lips, and restore

beauty and confidence.

Richard provides a friendly, discreet

service and personally guides his patients

through the transformation process to

create teeth with small nuances in the

fabrication, colour and shape.

Carmen, a recent patient said in a

thank you letter to Richard, “I highly

recommend your craftsmanship to anyone

wanting a natural looking smile. Because

you do your work in front of your client,

one is able to see how meticulous and

dedicated you are to ending up with a top

class result. My dentures are amazing.

They look like one’s own natural teeth. So

much time, effort and energy went into

the end result. Simply the best.”

Richard’s patients have varying needs,

from full denture replacement, to first

time immediate dentures, implant

supported dentures and metal partial

dentures.

Since he started making teeth in

1980 Richard has travelled extensively,

accumulating vast knowledge through

training and working in Japan, and

running his own practice in the

prestigious Harley Street, London for 15

years. He continues to teach his world

leading techniques globally.

Richard also creates porcelain crowns

and veneers, working with like-minded

dental professionals.

A beautiful new Lovebite smile

resembles nature and reflects the patient’s

character. It boosts confidence and helps

patients to look and feel years younger.

While the Nurse Maude Hospice Shops are

a well-known feature on the Christchurch

retail scene, no quite so well-known is its

equally successful counterpart, Maudes on

Trade Me.

Maudes on Trade Me sells everything

from antiques to sporting and household

items and is open 24 hours a day, seven

days a week with the proceeds of every

item supporting hours of care in the Nurse

Maude Hospice.

With up to 400 items a week being listed

and sold Maudes on Trade Me is totally

dependent on a steady stream of donated

goods.

So if it’s something you no longer want or

need the chances are it can raise money

for the Nurse Maude Hospice.

There has always been a strong

relationship between the

community and the Nurse

Maude Hospice.

That relationship is what makes

it possible for patients and their

families to be able to receive

care and support free of charge

at the Nurse Maude Hospice so

they can focus on what matters

rather than having to worry

about how they’re going to pay

for that care.

While smaller pieces can be

left for Maudes on Trade Me

at any of the Nurse Maude Hospice Shops

it is sometimes possible for larger or bulk

items to be picked up.

Just give them a call on 375 4643 or

email them at trademe.volunteers@

nursemaude.org.nz and they can let you

know if and when they can pick them up.

Inspired contemporary living

14A Saracen Avenue, Northwood

Auction: Thursday, 30 November 2017 Unless Sold Prior

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

Occupying a setting of tranquility, this

cleverly designed townhouse on a Freehold

Title, offers contemporary living without

compromise. With an outlook over Glen

Oaks Reserve, the Styx Mill Conservation

Reserve, and distant mountains beyond,

inspired views will greet you each morning,

yet supermarket, cafés and shops are within

close proximity.

In the tiled entrance, large windows bathe

the space in natural light and offer enticing

glimpses through to the internal courtyard.

A generously proportioned open-plan

living and dining room flows to outdoor

living on two sides: the internal courtyard,

a wonderfully sheltered and intimate space

for relaxing and entertaining throughout

the day and into the evening, and a sundrenched

terrace that invites you to enjoy

the leafy surrounds. Adjoining the living

space, a well-appointed kitchen includes an

island bench, pantry, ceramic cooktop and

90 cm entertainer’s oven. Sleek engineered

stone benches and boxed ceilings add a

touch of understated elegance.

Upstairs, the master suite is a luxurious

sanctuary, with sliders opening to your

own private balcony - and those sensational

views - plus a WIR and chic tiled en suite.

Two more airy and inviting bedrooms

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

wardrobes and share a tiled family bathroom

filled with light thanks to two rain-sensing

skylights. A downstairs powder room

caters to guests, while a separate laundry

and double internal-access garage ensure

the practicality of this very special home.

The 331 sqm grounds are fully fenced and

neatly landscaped with easy-care plantings,

ensuring maximum enjoyment with the

minimum of maintenance. A gate offers

direct access to the reserve and walking
