JASMINE TULI is one step way from

being recognised as one of rugby league’s

top volunteers.

The Linwood Keas stalwart (see page 1) 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 Marsden, 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 Friday.

Coastal pathway consent lodged

• By Sarla Donovan

CONSTRUCTION on the next

stage of the coastal pathway

is likely to start in April, once

the city council gets resource

consent approval from

Environment Canterbury.

The 760m section from Shag

Rock to the Sumner Surf Life

Saving Club is jointly funded by

the city council and the Coastal

Pathway Group.

It is expected to take 12

months to build.

The 4m-wide pathway will

planting. It will mostly be at

the same level as Main Rd and

extend towards the seaward side

of the road.

Rip rap – loose stone providing

will extend along the beach front

below Peacocks Gallop, with

two separate beach access steps

opposite Deans Head and one

opposite Shag Rock Reserve.

City council manager

Abusive teens ‘out of control’ at yacht club

• By Sarla Donovan

THE Christchurch Yacht Club

was recently overrun by more

than 100 teenagers, prompting

an emergency meeting.

Club commodore Richard

Ineson said some of the

committee met last week after

crowds of young people using

the club’s pontoon ignored

requests to move out of the

way.

Mr Ineson said the

situation had been “out of

control.”

“We couldn’t even drive our

IRBs with outboards up to the

pontoon there were so many people

in the water and they wouldn’t

get out.”

No matter what he said, the

young people simply “gave . . .

the middle finger” and ignored

him, Mr Ineson said. “They were

really abusive.”

The club’s pontoon in Moncks

Bay has been used by the public

for the past 25 years without any

problems, but hot weather and

school holidays have made it a

popular spot with teenagers this

summer.

Mr Ineson said he was reluctant

to call police because

everyone in the area would have

to have been moved, including

families.

“It was very stressful.”

The club had never had problems

before, said Mr Ineson, but

the influx this summer had been

creating issues.

An external tap on the clubhouse

was vandalised last week

and litter is regularly left strewn

around.

The club has members-only

rights over the area, from the

car park to the slipway but it has

always left it open for the public

to use.

“We want the community to

use it and respect it,” said

former club commodore Jo

Hooker.

She said people needed to be

responsible.

The following day Mr Ineson

closed the area between 9am-

3.30pm for a regatta but said he

had had to police it. “If I wasn’t

there, they would have climbed

the rope and ignored the sign.”

The club has asked the City to

Sumner Community Patrol to

visit because people were staying

well into the evening.

It is also looking at putting

more signage up in the area.

“The only consolation is school

holidays are ending soon so we

hope it won’t be anywhere near

as bad,” said Mr Ineson.

RETURNED: John

Edmonds asked the

city council to put the

‘s’ back into Linwood’s

Edmond St, which was

originally named after

his great-grandfather.

PHOTO: MARTIN

HUNTER

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE ‘S’ will be returned to

a street named after the man

behind a Kiwi kitchen icon

more than a century after it was

mysteriously removed.

Linwood’s Edmond St will be

corrected to Edmonds St after

Christchurch businessman and

philanthropist Thomas John

Edmonds.

He founded Edmonds Sure to

Rise baking powder.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

approved the change last week.

The street was named after T J

Edmonds in 1878. But somehow

after 1893, it was altered and the

‘s’ was removed for no apparent

reason.

T J Edmonds’ great grandson,

John Edmonds, asked the city

council if the spelling could be

corrected last year.

To do so, the city council

had to consult with the street’s

residents.

One responded saying while

they did not have an issue with

the renaming, they were concerned

it could cause confusion

with mail delivery

and they would

need to change

their address with

organisations such

as the Inland Revenue

Department.

However, city

council staff said

there were no

other streets in

the city with a

similar name, so

there would be no

confusion with mail

delivery.

Staff said while inconvenient,

changing addresses with those

organisations was easier now

because it could be done online.

John Edmonds said he was

“very happy” to hear his greatgrandfather’s

legacy was being

restored.

“It’s a courtesy that’s well warranted

. . . and I’m sure he would

appreciate it as well. He was very

conscious of the future,” he said.

It would cost $500 to install a

Couple’s love for penguins

Woolston

street may

be made

one-way

• By Julia Evans

A SECTION of Woolston’s

Cumnor Tce may become

one-way.

The city council is seeking

feedback on part of the Heathcote

Expressway cycleyway on

Cumnor Tce between Garlands

Rd and Marshall St.

At a meeting last year, the city

council infrastructure transport

and environment committee

agreed that an option for

increasing the width of the

cycleway on Cumnor Tce should

be explored, including the option

to convert it to a one-way

street.

As detailed design investigations

progressed, concerns were

raised by staff about the potential

impact on ecological values

along this section of the route, a

city council report said.

Cumnor Tce, between

Maunsell St and Garlands Rd,

is already one-way and north

of Marshall St would remain

two-way.

The public can give feedback

on the proposal via the city

council’s website.

“ALL YOU need is love, and a

penguin,” said the sign on the

front door.

It’s the perfect slogan for the

couple who live inside.

Halswell’s Kristina Schutt and

Thomas Stracke have been looking

after underweight and injured

penguins at their suburban

home for the past eight years.

Their organisation, Christchurch

Penguin Rehabilitation, is

licensed by the Department of

Conservation.

The German couple, who also

work part-time as intensive care

nurses at Christchurch Hospital,

fell in love with penguins after

seeing the birds at Oamaru when

they visited New Zealand in the

1990s.

The current penguin breeding

season, which runs from

December-May, is their busiest

yet with a peak of up to 14

penguins in their care at one

time.

Their current charges are all

white-flippered penguins, except

one very precious yellow-eyed

penguin chick that is covered in

a downy, brown coat.

It has been named Fluffy and

was brought in underweight

from Shell Bay, Banks Peninsula.

The yellow-eyed chick is one

of only three hatched on Banks

Peninsula this season and the

only one known to have survived.

Although Fluffy is still on

medication for an infection, the

chick is moving around and will

hopefully be able to return to

the wild after a couple of months

with Christchurch Penguin

Rehabilitation.

“We’re doing everything possible

for this little guy,” Ms Schutt

said.

Most of the birds are brought

in by members of the public who

come across them around the

coast, or they are found by city

council or DOC rangers.

At first, the chicks are given

syringes filled with clear fluids

to rehydrate them before they

move on to a grey paste that

Mr Stracke described as a “fish

smoothie” for a few days. Then

they are fed small salmon.

Ms Schutt said warmer sea

temperatures are making life

difficult for penguin chicks this

year. They find it harder to feed

because the fish tend to stay in

deeper waters where it is cooler

making them harder for juveniles

to catch.

She and Mr Stracke are handfeeding

two white-flippered

penguins which couldn’t survive

in the wild when they arrived.

They are also looking after an

adult white-flippered penguin

with a deep seal bite on its back.

It needed surgery at Hornby

Veterinary Centre.

City council ranger project

manager Andrew Crossland said

the city is lucky to have such

skilled and dedicated penguin

rehabilitators.

“They’re doing a great service

by saving our local penguin species

and returning the birds to

the wild.”

The penguins are given a name

after 48 hours, Mr Stracke said.

Often they name the bird after

the person who brings it in, so

one of their feathered patients is

called Steve.

When the birds have recovered,

they are released as close

as possible to the location where

they were found.

Mr Stracke said it’s satisfying

to see rescued birds set free.

“It’s a good feeling to have done

something.”

He said dog owners should

keep their pets on a leash as loose

dogs can be a threat to penguin

chicks.

•Any penguins found

should be placed in a box

and kept in a cool, quiet

place before calling DOC,

a local veterinary clinic, or

the Christchurch Penguin

Rehabilitation on 967 7733.

People should not try to give

them food or water.

Fight to reopen Kennedys Bush track

Halswell

Community

Project

chairwoman

Chrys Horn

says a lack

of action

at the Kennedys Bush

track is preventing it

from being reopened

KENNEDYS BUSH track is a

paper road line that provides

walking, running and biking

access from Halswell to

Summit Rd.

It also provides access to an

awesome network of tracks

in Ōhinetahi Reserve above

Governors Bay, as well as

Kennedys Bush and east and

west along the Port Hills. It has

been well used for decades.

Since the Port Hills fire, the

track has been closed, with

the city council citing health

and safety concerns. There are

burned trees that could fall over

the track, and the city council

can’t open it until they have

been cleared. The issue is that

there is little sign of them being

cleared and now there are huge

fences top and bottom of the

track. Increasingly, it appears we

may have a landowner who is

trying to stop public access.

Other affected Port Hills

tracks, including Christchurch

Adventure Park, reopened

relatively quickly. Inquiries in

October indicated that the track

would reopen on December

31. Now we are being told

March 31, but this seems very

uncertain.

It would appear that if we

simply accept these changes

without comment, getting this

track reopened could get a

whole lot harder.

I hope I am wrong, but

communities across New

Zealand have lost walking track

access like this because they

haven’t chosen to defend it. If

very few people act, it makes it

much easier for landowners to

get away with obstructing the

public.

If you want to make sure our

community gets back access

to Kennedys Bush track, then

contact the city council and/

or your local councillor and let

them know.

Ask for detailed information

and updates. Talk to others

about this, and get them

involved too. Join the Kennedys

Bush track network to keep up

with developments.

Find us on Facebook or

email kbtracknetwork@gmail.

com for more information. It is

more fun and more effective if

we all work together to achieve

this.

HAROLD THOMAS Surgenor,

“We owe him a debt of thanks.

He set up what we now have and

we will forever be grateful to

him,” he said.

“Now we have dogs that do all

manner of things like searching

out drugs, money, bombs and a

whole range of other uses.”

A retired police sergeant, Mr

Surgenor was one of the first

officers to train a police dog in

New Zealand after he picked up

Axel One from Trentham, Upper

Hutt, in October 1956.

The pup was born on a boat

coming from England and was

selected by Mr Surgenor over one

that was partially trained because

he wanted a fresh dog to work

with.

Another of his colleagues,

Colin Guppy,

of Wellington,

took the

partially

trained dog

to become

the first dog

handler in the

country.

Mr Surgenor

had three dogs

during his

career – Axel

One, Axel

Two and Axel

Three.

But he was

almost denied

his dream job

of becoming a

police officer

when he was

told he was too small to join.

“He had to fill out as a young

person and the police told him

to do some manual work to get

bigger. So he worked in a gold

mine on the West Coast,” Mrs

Surgenor said.

The couple met shortly after

Mr Surgenor had joined the

police in Wellington. They were

due to mark their 63rd wedding

anniversary next month. He

Harold Surgenor

spent time in the King Country

and Wanganui chasing prison

escapees, and was sometimes

away for weeks at a time, Mrs

Surgenor

said. They

moved from

Wanganui

to Ryan St in

1965.

Mr Surgenor

was head of

the police dog

unit which

covered most

of the South

Island.

His first

dog, Axel One,

was buried

at the couple’s

Ryan St

property, Mrs

Surgenor said.

Mr Surgenor

was farewelled

at a service in the Westpark

Chapel, Burnside, which was

attended by about 200 people.

“He was a dedicated and proud

policeman,” Mrs Surgenor

said.

“I was very proud to be his

wife and the letters and emails

detailing how respected he

was and admired in the police

force have been incredible,” she

said.

Opawa cadet goes

into the wild

OPAWA’S Courtney Rae took

part in the inaugural Exercise

Takahe, a week-long adventure

camp in Arthur’s Pass for the

New Zealand Cadet Forces.

NZCF is a youth training

organisation which provides

military-based leadership,

personal development and

adventure training to those aged

13-18.

During the recent exercise,

the cadets went through Cave

Stream, abseiled at Castle Hill

and flew over a river on a flying

fox.

They also treated some

injured patients after a mock

‘boulder accident’, bonded

with their teammates on a low

rope course, floated down the

Waimakariri River and rode

in a Unimog. An unexpected

storm with lightning, thunder,

rain and hail provided a bit of

excitement, but otherwise the

weather was calm and hot.

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.

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.

SENIOR LIVING

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.
