Bid to

demolish

or repair

‘eyesore’

suburban

properties

• By Julia Evans

ABANDONED properties in the

north-west have led to them being

described as a suburban “Dirty 30”.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

said a number of abandoned and

vacant properties in the wards

have become “eyesores” and could

attract criminal activity.

Last year the city council

released a “Dirty 30” list of

buildings in the central city that

had been left abandoned and are

working with the owners to repair

or demolish them. At least eight

have been removed from that list.

Although the number may not

be exactly 30 in the north-western

suburbs, the principal is the same,

Ms Jones said.

The board wants the city

council to work with the owners

to begin repairing, tidying up or

demolishing the buildings.

Ms Jones said the most obvious

two are empty and derelict

properties on Westminster St and

the corner of Papanui and Innes

Rds.

THERE MIGHT be a quick way to sort out

abandoned eyesores in the north-west.

Send in The Dirty Dozen.

I’m sure the likes of Lee Marvin,

Charles Bronson, Ernest Borgnine and

Telly Savalas, stars of that epic movie many, many years ago,

would take out the buildings in a heartbeat – under the cover of

darkness, of course.

If you’re wondering what I’m going on about, it’s our front

page article today and the Papanui-Innes Community Board

version of the city council’s register of the Dirty 30.

The board wants the city council to work with the owners

of abandoned buildings to begin repairing, tidying up or

demolishing them. That unfortunately will take a long time, but

at least they’re trying.

St Albans centre rebuild faces hurdle

No decision

on resource

consent

• By Julia Evans

MEDIATION MAY be needed

to work through a neighbour’s

objection to the new St Albans

Community Centre.

Caledonian Rd residents

Thirza and Philip Bean

submitted in opposition to the

community centre proposal,

which has

delayed the

rebuild that

was set to start

at the end of

last year. Their

property borders

Pauline

Cotter

the Colombo

St community

centre.

City

council head of community

support, governance and

partnerships unit Lester

Wolfreys said the city council

has not issued resource consent

so work cannot begin.

“The city council is

considering a resource consent

application and has received an

objection. No decision has yet

been made on the application,”

ON THE MOVE: The temporary St Albans Community Centre

is shifting to MacFarlane Park in Shirley before the centre’s

rebuild begins.

Mr Wolfreys said.

In their written objection,

Mr and Mrs Bean said the large

facility would increase the scale

of activity in the area, as well as

traffic, demand for car parks,

noise generated and a loss of

privacy.

Although Mr and Mrs Bean

said the plan is a “great idea”

for the community, they want

the centre’s operating hours to

be reduced, additional on-site

parking provided, a cap on the

number of people using the

building, and a reduction in

the floor space and outdoor

area.

A city council spokeswoman

said no start or finish date could

be confirmed until the resource

consent issues are resolved and

consent is granted.

But city councillor Pauline

Cotter said staff were working

with the objecting party.

“We’re hoping to sort it out

through mediation,” she said.

“This kind of thing can often

be solved quite easily.”

Cr Cotter said she is aware the

community is eager to get this

project under way and doesn’t

want it delayed longer than

necessary.

“The community board’s

priority is getting this new

facility open. We’re keen to

push that big green go button,”

Cr Cotter said.

She said the facility was

“bigger and better” than

before and while the Shirley

Community Centre rebuild was

on the “back burner”, it would

be serving that community as

well.

When it is completed the new

St Albans Community Centre

will include a large hall with

sprung floor, a recreation room,

two small meeting rooms, a

multi-media room, an office,

kitchen and toilets.

The operation of the St

Albans Community Centre

was temporarily moved from

Colombo St to the St Albans

Tennis Club on Dover St on

Thursday as its building is

being moved to MacFarlane

Park.

The community centre

will operate from the tennis

club until the new facility is

built.

Fundraising dinner for Everest trek

Redwood resident Tina

Morrell is getting ready

to trek to Mt Everest Base

Camp. She writes about her

training and her motivation

IN OCTOBER 2016, I found

myself lying in an ambulance

being rushed to hospital for

emergency surgery.

My brush with what could

have been an untimely death

jolted me to adjust my mindset

around the priorities in my life.

I wanted to pursue what I

loved doing. Life is short, and

can be completely unpredictable.

So, when a friend raised the

idea of trekking to Mt Everest

Base Camp, I thought, what have

I got to lose? I promptly said:

“Count me in.”

Trekking to base camp had

been one of those ideas that had

periodically flashed through my

mind, and I had always thought

it would be something I’d never

have the opportunity to do.

Training started with walking

and jogging, until last March

when I took part and completed

the 14km City to Surf, and slowly

progressed from this to completing

the Mt Cook half marathon

in June with my teammates.

New bollards

to deter

motorcyclists

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

MOTORCYCLISTS using a

Fendalton alleyway will have to go

the long way around.

At its last meeting, the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board approved two

new bollards at both ends of the alleyway

between Coldstream Court

and Barlow St.

Residents in the area wrote to the

city council with safety concerns

as motorcyclists and cyclists have

been using the alleyway as a shortcut.

Coldstream Court resident

Hamish Martin told the city council

he had seen a collision between

a cyclist and a pedestrian.

“A child is going to be taken out

and we don’t want to see that happening,”

board chairman David

Cartwright said.

The board received advice from

city council staff that improving

visibility by lowering the fences

of the adjacent properties was the

recommended solution.

However, Mr Cartwright said it

decided introducing a bollard was

the best deterrent.

“It’ll be appropriate for big prams

or wheelchairs to still be able to

navigate,” he said. Mr Cartwright

said only the “real idiots” were

cycling or riding their motorcycle

down the alleyway.

eyesores can be attractors

of criminal activity, rats,

affect neighbourhood

amenity, as well as there

being ongoing disrepair

on the periphery,” she

said.

FORMER PAPANUI Tigers prop

Seth Tauamiti is a finalist in the

domestic 18s player of the year at

the New Zealand Rugby League

awards.

Tauamiti, who now lives in

Auckland after signing with the

Warriors, had a standout year

in the 13-man code making

the New Zealand Schoolboys

side against the Australian

Schoolboys last year.

Ali Jones

about eight months ago, Ms Jones

said. A city council spokeswoman

said its regulatory compliance

unit has investigated the activity

at 258 Papanui Rd and has an

ongoing investigation at

24 Westminster St.

“In relation to compliance

with the District

Plan. The council is not

working with the owners

to tidy the properties in

connection with these

investigations,” she said.

Ms Jones said to her

understanding the city

council has little power to make

the owners do something with

their properties.

He was also selected for the

Canterbury Bulls, played in the

premier Tigers squad, and was a

key part of the St Thomas’ school

rugby and league sides.

The other domestic 18s finalists

are Steven Marsters, St George

Illawarra; Tyler Slade, Warriors,

and Jonathan Aumua Falelua-

Malio, Akarana.

His training has been on

hold for the past few weeks as

he recovers from a niggling leg

injury and infection.

“Unless the building itself

is a danger structurally – we

managed to speed up a demo

of an abandoned building on

Sherborne St using this. Or there

is a fire risk from plant growth

or other hazardous items on the

property,” she said.

The board is getting initial

advice from staff about what the

city council can enforce, which

was supported by Mayor Lianne

Dalziel at the city council meeting

on Thursday.

“We need initial advice on

what the current rules are and

how they’re applied and whether

there are any changes around the

regulatory process we could look

Tauamiti told Nor’West News

the first he knew about the

nomination was after he scrolled

through Facebook, saw the

nomination and then his name

on the list.

“I was speechless for about

5min. Then I quickly told

my parents and they were

gobsmacked,” he said.

“I am so humbled and grateful

for the nomination.”

Reflecting on the year that saw

him nominated, Tauamiti said it

was a tough yet rewarding road.

“I knew I had to make a point

out there on the field. There was

tough competition, I was up

against. I knew when I trained, I

had to put my head down and it

has paid off,” he said.

He is currently living with his

former St Thomas’ teammate

Patrick Elia in Auckland,

who was also signed by the

Warriors.

“It was good to move up

together and he is doing really

at,” Ms Dalziel said.

She said the city council has

a process in the central city, but

any residential work would have

to follow a completely different

framework.

“It would need to be a very

careful and considered approach,”

Ms Dalziel said.

Ms Jones said working with

the owners of the abandoned

properties might uncover other

underlying issues in terms of

insurance and EQC settlements.

“We need to find out why they’re

being abandoned.”

“I find that quite astounding.

I would have thought that seven

years is enough time for an owner

to have communicated with

the council if it’s an insurance

issue for example – or at least

made an effort to get the property

sorted,” she said.

She said the board wants to

keep the issue in front of people

in order for the city to move on

from the impact of the earthquakes.

“It’s part of our recovery.”

Gatehouse restored

A MAJOR transformation has

restored the Mona Vale gatehouse

to its former glory.

Gracing one of the entrances

to the Fendalton homestead

and gardens, the category two

heritage gatehouse was badly

damaged during the earthquakes.

However, an extensive

programme of work has saved

and strengthened the two-storey

structure, which was built in

1905. It reopened on Thursday.

“The gatehouse symbolises the

city’s renewal,” said Nicky Brown,

city council operations manager,

garden and heritage parks.

“The intricate restoration and

attention to detail have ensured

that the Mona Vale gatehouse is

back to its best, and stronger than

ever,” Ms Brown said.

Much of the work involved the

deconstruction and reconstruction

of the gatehouse, with it

spending most of that time under

plastic wrap.

The exterior brick masonry

walls were deconstructed to the

first floor level, strengthened with

reinforced concrete columns and

a reinforced concrete beam at the

top.

The porch steps and floor have

also been rebuilt. The ground

floor has been re-levelled, while

a palisade wall now stabilises the

The Marseille tile roof has

installation of a ply diaphragm.

The tiles have been reinstated,

including the terracotta roof

A rare example of decorated

gothic-style architecture of the

late 19th century, the building

has been completely refurbished

and upgraded and the sun room

has been rebuilt.

Women relish challenge

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

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,

TRAINING: Jess De Bont with Finn

Pierce who is a part of her Coast to

Coast Rangers group for youths in

Canterbury.

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.

Kathmandu Coast to Coast full

– women’s race shaping up for

titanic battle

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

outside the women’s individual record

set by Christchurch’s Andrea Murray in

1997.

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.

Christchurch United

Academy growing

at rapid pace

The Christchurch United Football

Club and its high-performance academy

continues to develop at a rapid pace.

The arrival of high-profile Academy

Director Colin Williamson is another major

step in the development of the academy

based at the world-class Christchurch

Football Centre (CFC) on Yaldhurst Road.

Williamson worked with some of the best

coaches in the Netherlands during his seven

years at professional clubs PSV Eindhoven

and Roda JC. He will be working closely

with the club’s Brazilian Head Coach

Fernando Lambert in developing the other

coaches at Christchurch United.

This year the academy has expanded to

include an U13, two U14 and an U15 squad.

Christchurch United also offers preacademy

programmes from U6 to U12 and

will expand its community programmes

for players from the age of 4 to 17, with

additional pitches at Yaldhurst, as well as

the historical base at Spreydon Domain.

Players can join the community teams

from $119 a season, and still get the

benefit of the professional coaching staff

supporting the volunteer coaches.

The academy and CFC were created

by Christchurch businessman Slava

Meyn in 2014 to provide all-year football

development with top quality coaching.

The academy in 2016 merged with

the Christchurch United and last year

dominated many of the junior leagues.

A staggering 36 players were being picked

for representative teams.

The 2018 Football

Season is here!

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

neW

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

IS YOUR BRAIN SHRINKING?

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.
