Mother punched defending son

‘Thomson

Park is the

problem

spot’

• By Sophie Cornish

A SOUTH New Brighton woman

was left with a badly bruised face

after trying to defend her autistic

son against a teenage bully.

Erica Godfrey was punched

at the Thomson Skate Park after

confronting a teenager who had

pushed and threatened her son.

Her son, Isaiah, 14, told her of

the incident when she picked him

to take him home. Isaiah has autism,

ADHD and a laryngeal paillomatosis

tumour in his throat.

Mrs Godfrey then confronted

the teenager who was still at the

skate park.

“I started trying to explain to

the boy that my son was trying

to make friends with him but

because he has a throat tumour

he can’t talk clearly and with his

autism he doesn’t communicate

very well,” she said.

The teenager wouldn’t listen to

Mrs Godfrey, telling her he has

anger problems and then punched

her hard in the face.

Mrs Godfrey told him she was

calling the police, to which he

said: “So what, there’s no cameras,

you can’t ID me, get over it.”

JASMINE TULI is one step away from

being recognised as one of rugby league’s

top volunteers.

The passionate Linwood Keas club

member (see page 8) is a finalist in the

female volunteer of the year category at the New Zealand Rugby

League awards in Auckland on Saturday night.

She is the premier squad manager, is a director of the club and

has a lot to do with the junior teams.

Her husband Teni, aka the ‘Godfather’, tragically died on the

training field during 2015, one game short of his 300th for the

Keas. It was going to be his last premier grade match.

Says Jasmine: “We are a league family and that is all we do. It

is in my blood.”

All the best for Saturday.

the supermarket’s opening day.

Prestons New World opens

MARSHLAND residents have

been hit by a “mini

economic boom” as the

Prestons New World

employing more than

100 staff opened its

doors on Friday.

Owner and grocer

Julia Spence said 80

per cent of the staff live

locally and opening day

sales had been excellent.

The recruitment

process for the supermarket

proved popular, with people

lined up outside the Marshland

Julia Spence

scouts hall where it was being

run. The store was opened

by Christchurch East MP

Poto Williams

A Ngai Tahu Property

(Prestons developer)

spokeswoman said it was

thrilled to see the supermarket

opening.

“As a part of the

original masterplan, it

was envisaged that the

development would

include a thriving retail

area anchored by a New World

supermarket, so to see it come

to fruition is very rewarding.”

“Residents we have spoken with

are very excited to have this facility

on their doorstep and they

are eagerly awaiting the (opening

of) further stores in the coming

months,” she said.

The store features some new

innovations such as a ‘vertical

wall’ in the produce department.

This refrigeration shelving system

allows fruit and vegetables

to be displayed with minimal

packaging to reduce wastage.

The system works by misting

the produce with water to keep

it fresh.

This feature has also been

rolled out in a few other

Christchurch stores, receiving

“some of the most positive

feedback from customers owners

have ever received,” said a

spokeswoman from Foodstuffs

New Zealand.

Ms Spence said she has been

living and breathing the grocery

business since she was a “nipper.”

“I went to my first Foodstuffs

conference with my parents

when I was six-weeks-old,” she

said.

Ms Spence bought her first

store when she was 24, a Four

Square in Akaroa.

HOT POOLS FEEDBACK

Development Christchurch Ltd

has analysed the feedback received

during the public engagement

on the New Brighton hot pools.

Consultation was open from late

October to early November. It has

contributed to the way the pools

are being designed, with strong

themes of wind protection, shelter,

seating, parking, and accessibility

coming through in the feedback.

Finalised concept designs are

expected in the coming months

when preparations will also begin

for consenting.

QE II MASTER PLAN

The city council is set to start

developing a master plan that will

help guide the future use of QE

II Park in collaboration with the

community. The plan will set out

the vision for the park and how it is

used . The city council project team

will ask immediate neighbours of

the park and the wider community

for input.

Good Samaritans help with school costs

• By Sophie Cornish

A NORTH New Brighton couple

raised more than $900 in a week

to help families with

their back-to-school

costs.

Jason and Liz Harber

donated more than 60

school stationery packs

to the Compassion

Trust, with help from

the community and

work colleagues.

The couple received a

“hugely overwhelming” response

after posting on a New Brighton

community Facebook page asking

where they could drop off 16

primary school stationary packs

they had made up with items

bought from The Warehouse.

“There was so many positive

responses, it was unbelievable,”

said Mrs Harber.

Following this, she told her

work colleagues at

the Christchurch Casino

administration

office about the idea

and, by the end of the

day, she had raised

more than $850.

Another 28 primary

school packs

were created and

donated as well as 22

year 9 packs, including scientific

calculators.

The Compassion Trust helps

more than 250 families in east

Christchurch with free services,

such as financial mentoring,

‘street kitchens’, emergency aid

Jason and Liz Harber

and house repair services.

Trust manager Anne Addei

said the donations, as well as

the online responses, had been

“mind-blowing and amazing.”

“This time of year is our craziest

time. It’s when people get the

most stressed. To tell you the

truth, most of our clients don’t

ever have spare money so to be

able to plan ahead for these costs,

it is just too hard,” she said.

DONATIONS: Some of

the back-to-school items

purchased with the money

raised by Jason and Liz

Harber to form stationery

packs.

Mrs Harber wants people to

understand how easy it is to

make a difference. “You don’t

really need a big plan in place,

you literally just have to go out

and buy things and give them

away.”

“I think people think there is

more to it than there actually is

. . . the stuff we got was all quite

generic for those specific age

groups so it made it easier,” said

Mrs Harber.

Cops join Aranui kids for barbecue

WITH temperatures soaring to

31 deg C, families cooled off at

the Aranui Community Trust

Back 2 School Barbecue.

Funded through the city

council’s neighbourhood week

programme, the barbecue at

Wainoni Park was attended

by more than 200 community

members. “It was a fun day

with people connecting with

Fire rages, homes at risk

Council bins full of household rubbish

SCORCHING temperatures may

have sent people to the beach,

but it also put pressure on

rubbish bins.

The city council says the

problem is being exacerbated

by people dumping household

rubbish, including umbrellas,

televisions and boogie boards, in

public bins.

The city council has been

criticised for failing to keep up

with clearing rubbish bins, firstly

at the popular New Brighton

again last week at beaches in the

Bay area.

Extra bins have now been

added near the playground.

City council acting head

of parks Brent Smith said its

contractor has collected 20 per

cent more rubbish compared to

the same period last year.

“While the warm weather is

partly to blame for the increase,

people misusing the bins has

been another contributing

factor,” he said.

Joe’s Garage, a cafe in Sumner,

has even offered people a free

coffee if they fill a bucket with

rubbish and bring it back to the

cafe.

Mr Smith said the city council

has added an extra bin collection

in the Sumner area in the

evening.

“We’re also investigating some

long-term changes that could

help ensure we keep on top of

the rubbish. We’re looking at

the number and style of bins we

provide and we are also looking

at improved signage to inform

and encourage appropriate

behaviour,’’ Mr Smith said.

He said the city council had

also had a high number of

illegal rubbish dumping

reported.

“We have had 72 requests for

service come in over the past two

months that relate to rubbish

being dumped illegally, which is

an unacceptably high number,”

he said.

“We do our best to keep our

beaches, parks and public spaces

tidy by making sure we regularly

empty the rubbish bins, but we

need the public to play their

part too and take some civic

responsibility,’’ Mr Smith said.

Aranui Primary future may lie with community

Options for site to be discussed

at meeting tomorrow

• By Sophie Cornish

THE MINISTRY of Education

has said it has no plans to

demolish any of the

buildings at the Aranui

Primary School site,

allowing community

groups to come together

to discuss its future.

Coastal-Burwood

Community Board

member Tim Baker

wants the community

to be involved with

what happens to the

site.

“We want to discuss

what is best for the future . . . let’s

talk about it as a community and

let the community decide,” said

Mr Baker.

The school closed in December

2016 and merged with Avondale

Tim Baker

Primary, Wainoni School and

Aranui High School to form

Haeata Community Campus.

A meeting will be held

tomorrow about the

possibility of using

the site for affordable

housing.

Mr Baker said he

will be one of several

individuals, including

Christchurch East

MP Poto Williams,

meeting about

affordable housing

in the east, with the

Aranui Primary

site (right) being

one option for housing.

He suggested another option

for the site is that it may be

purchased by a community

organisation.

“Why pull down buildings

that an organisation may want

to purchase the whole lot of,”

said Mr Baker, hinting at the

possibility there may be a group

interested.

The site is currently used

by two groups: The Incredible

Years, an under five parenting

programme, and Te Kupenga o

Aranui, an alternative education

programme for teenagers with

learning difficulties.

The community board is

waiting on Minister of Education

Chris Hipkins to arrange a time

to discuss several school sites on

the east.

“We know they have been busy

with the 100-day plan and we are

a very small priority,” said Mr

Baker.

NEW ROAD markings are to

be put in on Rothesay Rd in a

bid to deter speeding motorists.

The Parklands road between

Queenspark and Putake Drives

has had ongoing issues with

excessive vehicle speeds.

In a memo to the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board,

city council staff said it is likely

due to the fact that part of

Rothesay Rd has a forest on

the north side with no road

markings.

“It presents a very open traffic

environment and perhaps feels

less like a 50km/h urban road

but more like a higher speed

rural road to some users,” city

council staff said.

The board asked staff to

investigate the possibility of

relocating bollards to address

the parking and speeding

issues.

However, staff told the board:

“Removing/relocating the

bollards at the front north side

of the parking bays . . . may in

fact be counter-productive in

that it would create an even

more open traffic environment

and potentially lead to higher

vehicle speeds.”

Instead staff said to

address both speed issues

and encroachment of parked

vehicles, new road markings are

to be installed.

New edge and centre lines

will be painted around the

curve opposite 102 and

104 Rothesay Rd. There are

currently no road markings

there.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Rothesay Rd speed solution

PLANS: Rothesay Rd as it is now and with the planned new

road markings to deter speeding motorists.

“The proposed road markings

will define the edge of the

roadway and therefor the depth

of the parking bays as well as

provide a visual narrowing

of the roadway and present a

more urban road environment

that will help moderate vehicle

speeds,” the memo said.

LONG-TIME RUGBY league

supporter Jasmine Tuli has been

recognised for her work with the

Linwood Keas.

Mrs Tuli is a finalist in the

female volunteer category at

the New Zealand Rugby League

Awards in Auckland on Saturday

night.

She is the premier squad’s

manager, director of the club

in 2017, oversaw the junior

committee and under-18 squad,

managed and trained the

under-16s, helped create the

premier women side, represented

Linwood at Canterbury Rugby

League meetings and took the

under-14s to an undefeated

finish in a Southern Zone

tournament last year.

She has also managed the

premier men’s side since 2016

and works full time for Land and

Information New Zealand.

Mrs Tuli stayed immersed

herself with the Linwood club

after the death of her husband

Teni Tuli, known as the

‘Godfather’, saying it was like

Teni died of a heart attack on

a training field on June 2, 2015,

just before his 300th game which

he told his teammates would be

his last.

He played prop and second

row, and debuted for the Keas in

1994 and was part of the grand

final-winning teams of 2005 and

2008 and was named premier

player of the year three times.

THe first she knew about the

nomination was when she got a

phone call from NZRL telling

her she had made the finals and

to be in Auckland on Saturday.

“I’m quite honoured to be

nominated and I have no idea

who has put my name forward

but it is my everyday life you

know,” she said.

“To be recognised by New

Zealand Rugby League is a big

achievement so I must be doing

something right.”

She played for the Sydenham

Swans before getting involved

with the Keas.

Uriah, now plays for in the

under-16s. He is the captain of

his side and plays loose forward.

“He is following in his dad’s

footsteps. He is a Kea through

Other Canterbury finalists

are: St Thomas’ and Hornby

Panthers Caius Fa’atili, 16s

player of the year, former St

Still Me By Jojo Moyes

The third Lou Clark novel by Jojo Moyes, following the Number

One international bestsellers Me Before You and After You Lou Clark

arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she

can embrace this new adventure and keep her relationship with

Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles. She is hurled

into the world of the super-rich Gopniks: Leonard and his much

younger second wife, Agnes, and a never-ending array of household

staff and hangers-on. Lou is determined to get the most out of the

experience and throws herself into her job and New York life within

this privileged world. Before she knows what’s happening, Lou is

mixing in New York high society, where she meets Joshua Ryan, a

man who brings with him a whisper of her past. In Still Me, as Lou

tries to keep the two sides of her world together, she finds herself

carrying secrets - not all her own - that cause a catastrophic change

in her circumstances. And when matters come to a head, she has to

ask herself: Who is Louisa Clark? And how do you reconcile a heart

that lives in two places?

Fire and Fury By Michael Wolff

With extraordinary access to the Trump White House, Michael Wolff tells the

inside story of the most controversial presidency of our time. The first nine

months of Donald Trump’s term were stormy, outrageous, and absolutely

mesmerising. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, bestselling

author Michael Wolff tells the fascinating story of how Trump launched a

tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself. In this explosive book, Wolff

provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among

the revelations: - What President Trump’s staff really thinks of him - What

inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama - Why FBI

director James Comey was really fired - Why chief strategist Steve Bannon

and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t be in the same room -

Who is really directing the Trump administration’s strategy in the wake of

Bannon’s firing - What the secret to communicating with Trump is - What the

Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers. Never

before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported

and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury shows us how and

why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.

Breaking Free By rachel Jeffs

In this searing memoir of survival in the spirit of Stolen Innocence, the

daughter of the self-proclaimed Prophet of the FLDS Church takes you

deep inside the secretive, polygamist and fundamentalist Mormon cult

run by her family and recounts her escape. Born into the Fundamentalist

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Rachel Jeffs was raised in a

strict patriarchal culture defined by subordinate sister wives and men they

must obey. No one in this radical splinter sect of the Mormon Church was

more powerful or terrifying than its leader Warren Jeffs--Rachel’s father. In

2006 the FBI placed him on its Ten Most Wanted List. Rachel describes her

harrowing life with Warren Jeffs, and the years of physical and emotional

abuse she suffered. Sexually assaulted, compelled into an arranged

polygamous marriage, locked away in ‘houses of hiding’, as punishment

for perceived transgressions, and physically separated from her children,

Rachel eventually found the courage to leave the church in 2015. A

shocking and mesmerising memoir of faith, abuse, courage and freedom,

this is an expose of religious extremism and a beacon of hope for anyone

overcoming obstacles or trauma in their own lives.

Women set to make

Kathmandu

brings you

New Zealand’s

most iconic

adventure

race.

#KMDC2C

KBR1153/L

Kathmandu

Coast to Coast

male domination

changing

HISTORICALLY THE Kathmandu Coast

to Coast has been a male dominated race,

but that is definitely changing.

The event is full for the first time in a

decade, with organisers and title sponsor

Kathmandu challenging more females to

take it on, a rallying call that is gaining

some real momentum and having an

impact on the event in a number of ways.

Jess De Bont is a working mum who

has competed in the event and now

throws her energy into running a youth

programme, training a new generation of

multi-sport athletes.

“It’s wonderful to see so many females

stepping up and being involved in

Coast to Coast whether it be in a team,

tandem, support crew role or some other

way of getting behind the event,”

she said.

Ms De Bont established the Coast

to Coast Rangers, a programme for

disadvantaged youth in Canterbury

She is one of a growing number of

women who are making their mark on

the event in different ways.

“Our programme is about making the

event accessible to teenagers who would

not have had the opportunity otherwise,”

she said.

“The Kathmandu Coast to Coast is

accessible, achievable and fun, and there’s

a real social element to training and

getting into the outdoors. Kathmandu are

all about making the outdoors accessible

to everyone and the race is the same so it’s

a great fit.”

Ms De Bont says for her east

Christchurch teenagers it has been

about getting outside and exploring the

wonderful backyard that Christchurch

and Canterbury offers, just as much as it

has been about training.

“They have biked, run and kayaked over

places they never knew existed. Exposing

them to the great outdoors has been an

absolute privilege. They embrace each

week in the Port Hills with enthusiasm

and gratitude,” said Ms De Bont.

This is the third year the Coast to Coast

Rangers have competed in the event with

16-year-old Emmy Slott, competing in the

TRAINING: Jess De Bont training with Finn Pierce as part of her Coast to Coast

Rangers group for youths in Canterbury.

kayak leg.

Emmy has two fellow Linwood College

team mates competing with her in a twoday,

three person team, with the other

two doing the cycling and running legs,

making the challenge of completing the

243km journey across the South Island

very do-able.

“They will be supported by their friend,

Aleisha, who is keen to see the event from

a support crew role and then compete in

years to come,” said Ms De Bont.

“Emmy has been training hard these

past few months, getting up at 6am for

kayak training more than once a week has

been a challenge in itself.

“For me, it is all about giving these east

Christchurch teenagers opportunities

they perhaps wouldn’t normally have and

taking them to places they haven’t been,

encouraging them to step outside their

comfort zones, which they do on a regular

basis. Some people don’t step outside their

comfort zones all year. Our teenagers do it

each week when I ask them to participate

in various activities, challenges and races.

It is inspiring to see.”

“As a working mum and an athlete

myself, I know all that the multi-tasking

busy mums have to do. Trying to fit

in kids activities, nutritional cooking,

training and working is a juggling act in

itself, but it is a very special thing to be

able to compete and have your children

waiting and cheering so proudly as their

mum crosses the finish line, smiles all

round,” said Ms De Bont.

More women competing is highlighted

even further with the women’s World

Championship Longest Day event shaping

up as one to watch this year.

The late entry of two-time champion

and three-time adventure racing world

champion, Sophie Hart, has added some

real spice to an already deep field for the

women’s one-day race. The 34-year-old

Lyttelton GP is a two-time winner of the

women’s one-day event with her last win

coming in 2013. Her first win in 2011 in a

time of 12hr 10min was only 1min

their mark in race

The women’s field is the strongest in

years, led by defending champion and

four-time winner Elina Ussher; last year’s

runner-up, South African Robyn Owen,

who was leading the race into the final

bike leg before being overhauled by Ussher;

Christchurch-based German Simone

Maier, who last raced in the event in 2015

when she was second; and Whakatane’s

Corrine O’Donnell, a strong runner who

always makes her presence felt.

Former world champion kayaker and

Olympian Teneal Hatton is another one

to watch in the women’s one-day event.

Hatton was third in November’s ICF

ocean ski world champs in Hong Kong,

racing as the event’s defending world

champion.

Leading Australian multi-sport athlete

Alex Hunt and New Zealander Bobby

Dean loom as men’s defending World

Championship Longest Day champion

Sam Clark’s biggest challenges. Clark

stormed home last year to pass Braden

Currie on the final bike leg and claim

back-to-back wins in the World Championship

longest day event.

Dean has raced for top adventure racing

team Team Bivouac inov-8 and was 11th

in the 2016 Kathmandu Coast to Coast

and fourth last year while Hunt is back for

his third crack at his favourite event and is

aiming to repeat his 2016 podium effort.

Politicians proud of New Brighton

finish

Christchurch East MP Poto Williams

will join Coastal-Burwood Ward city

councillor Glenn Livingstone, who is

competing in the two-day individual

event, on the run and final bike ride. The

pair have been training together and both

politicians are proud of the fact the event

finishes in New Brighton.

“One of the reasons I am competing in

the Kathmandu Coast to Coast is because

it ends in New Brighton at the pier,” Ms

Williams said. “I have done most of my

training in the eastern suburbs and New

Brighton is the heart of outdoor activity

in Christchurch.”

Cr Livingstone said the city council sees

the real benefits of what the event means

for Christchurch, New Brighton and the

Canterbury region.

“It not only brings competitors and

their support crews into the city from

throughout New Zealand and overseas

but shows off the amazing terrain and

scenery of our region as well,” said Cr

Livingstone.

Pellet fuel and so much more

at handy hardware store

While we have enjoyed a mainly sizzling

hot summer, we know that all too soon

the temperatures will drop and we will

be needing to heat rather than cool our

homes.

Residents of New Brighton and

surrounding areas, who have pellet fires,

will be pleased to learn that Azwood pellet

fuel will be available from March 1 at

Home & Castle Hardware And Stuff.

Owner Dennis Shrimpton wasn’t able

to stock the fuel last year due to lack of

available space, but he is happy to advise

customers he has now created an in-store

storage area for the pellet fuel.

This fuel is the industry standard for all

pellet fires, and the 15kg bags are easy to

handle, Dennis says.

As the name suggests, the store stocks

a huge selection of products including

hardware, plants, tools, paints, power and

hand tools – and everything else you need

for projects around the home.

In addition, you’ll find an extensive

fishing section, key cutting, leather and

sterling silver giftware, games, toys,

homewares and small appliances.

Home & Castle Hardware And Stuff is

located in Beresford Street, New Brighton,

opposite Super Liquor – look for the

yellow and black shop signs.

There is a five-minute loading zone

right outside the store for your parking

and browsing convenience.

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and

as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.

Scientists at Rush University Medical

Center found those most deficient

in vitamin B12 to have the smallest

brain mass & the lowest scores on

tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration & brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains & score higher

on cognitive tests than those with lower

levels. Yet another recent landmark study

showed that B12 supplementation slows

the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage

& declining cognitive function. B12 is

essential for energy production, cell

health, regulation of mood & sleep cycles,

nerve health & repair, & prevention of

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular

risk factor that is known to cause damage

& plaque in the blood vessels. It can also

increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard

researchers found

a 34% decrease

risk of vision

loss in a study

of participants

aged 40+ who

supplemented

with B12. Another

study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb

it declining with age as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication & other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth &

thru bypassing the digestive tract have

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in

the body.

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,

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

BRAIN FOG, FORGETFUL, FEELING OLD, LOW ENERGY, MOOD SWINGS,

DIFFICULTY SLEEPING, PINS & NEEDLES, NUMBNESS IN LEGS

Up to 1 in 2 people may have a shrinking brain due to a lack of vitamin B12.

Supplementation of methylcobalamin B12 has been shown to reduce the rate of brain

shrinkage & support memory & brain function. B12 is also known to protect against

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that can also damage the hearing,

eyesight & affect the mood. B12 is essential for energy, cell health & nerve function.

What’s happening

at Lady Wigram

Retirement Village?

It’s been a busy few years for The

Golden Healthcare Group with their latest

development of Lady Wigram Retirement

Village on Kittyhawk Road. The first villas

were occupied in August 2015 and now 101

villas are completed.

In December, the club house opened

which provides a bowling green, hair

dressing salon, restaurant and bar, billiard

room, movie theatre and library. The Club

House has all the trimmings, including 16

one and two bedrooms Apartments. The

next stage will also include a swimming

pool, gym and a further 14 Apartments.

When speaking with one of their

residents about how he feels about the new

Club house, Mr Havill said “everyone is

so excited about it opening, we have all

been watching it very closely’. Mr Havill is

fascinated as to how the fountain works.

He has lived in the village for the past

few years, enjoying his new life style and

making friends. He has also picked up new

hobbies including learning to play mahjong,

“I love it, I had never played in my life”. Mr

Havill owned his own home for 44 years

and in that time he maintained the house,

painted it, did this... did that. “We don’t

have to do that anymore, this is my place for

the moment. Every villa is different, even

121 Skyhawk Road

though they look the same. But you make it

your own”. One thing Mr Havill likes at this

age is “the gates shut at night, we can get in

but no one else can and that is an additional

sense of security for us”.

Owner John Tooby says “our residents

are very involved in the continuing

development of the village, they share our

pride in making this a great place to live. It’s

a real community and it continues to grow”.

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.

Hydrate to elevate

We all know drinking water is important, but the

majority of us simply don’t drink enough even though

we know it makes us feel great when we do. We look

at the benefits and motivate you to drink more with a

few tips on how to make it just a little more palatable.

With over a quarter of Kiwis consuming

less than two glasses of water a day and only

5% drinking more than the recommended

eight, the message obviously hasn’t hit

home on the importance of hydrating our

body.

A recent survey conducted by

SodaStream found that Cantabrians are

particularly guilty when it comes to their

water intake.

With 82% drinking less than six glasses

of water a day, but with over 85% admitting

they feel healthier when they drink more

water, something needs to be done to

bridge the gap in terms of what we know

to be true and what we’re actually doing

about it.

This same survey revealed that although

41% of us limit how many soft drinks we

consume due to our concerns over sugar

content, the same number of people said

tea or coffee is this their number one drink

of choice.

Some people even believe that the water

consumed in their cup of Joe constitutes

part of their water intake. This is a fallacy.

As caffeine actually dehydrates us, as

does alcohol too, it means we need to

drink even more water to compensate.

Not so surprisingly the reason we don’t

drink nearly enough water is that we

simply forget. Now with apps you can

download direct to your smart phone,

there are no more excuses.

Further studies proved that people who

had a SodaStream machine in their homes

were more likely to drink more water.

In fact, the study showed that people

drank 30% more water.

For those of us who aren’t used

to drinking water like it’s going

out of fashion, there are plenty of ways

to increase the fun factor while still

being healthy.

By simply turning tap water into

sparkling water with a SodaStream

machine and adding a splash of fresh

lemon juice or naturally squeezed fruit

juice, is bound to have a positive impact on

our health and wellbeing.

design, which makes use of 160+ moving lights and over

2000 lighting cues arranged to punctuate and enhance

the musical elements of the show.
