JASMINE TULI is one step way from<br />

being recognised as one of rugby league’s<br />

top volunteers.<br />

The Linwood Keas stalwart (see page 1) is<br />

a finalist in the female volunteer of the year<br />

category at the New Zealand Rugby League awards in Auckland<br />

on Saturday night.<br />

She is the premier squad manager, is a director of the club and<br />

has a lot to do with the junior teams.<br />

Her husband Marsden, aka the ‘Godfather’, tragically died on<br />

the training field during 2015, one game short of his 300th for<br />

the Keas. It was going to be his last premier grade match.<br />

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

is in my blood.”<br />

All the best for Friday.<br />

Coastal pathway consent lodged<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

CONSTRUCTION on the next<br />

stage of the coastal pathway<br />

is likely to start in April, once<br />

the city council gets resource<br />

consent approval from<br />

Environment Canterbury.<br />

The 760m section from Shag<br />

Rock to the Sumner Surf Life<br />

Saving Club is jointly funded by<br />

the city council and the Coastal<br />

Pathway Group.<br />

It is expected to take 12<br />

months to build.<br />

The 4m-wide pathway will<br />

be a mix of asphalt and timber<br />

boardwalk with native coastal<br />

planting. It will mostly be at<br />

the same level as Main Rd and<br />

extend towards the seaward side<br />

of the road.<br />

Rip rap – loose stone providing<br />

a protective breakwater –<br />

will extend along the beach front<br />

below Peacocks Gallop, with<br />

two separate beach access steps<br />

opposite Deans Head and one<br />

opposite Shag Rock Reserve.<br />

City council manager<br />

planning and delivery transport,<br />

Lynette Ellis said the start<br />

date and construction period<br />

would be conditional on any<br />

“additional requirements”<br />

identified during the consenting<br />

process.<br />

An ECan spokeswoman said a<br />

PATHWAY: A computer-generated image of the coastal pathway boardwalk through dunes<br />

beside the Clifton Hill car park. ​<br />

decision on whether to publicly<br />

notify the consent was expected<br />

towards the end of next week.<br />

The consent was lodged with<br />

THE JEwEllEry<br />

Abusive teens ‘out of control’ at yacht club<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

THE Christchurch Yacht Club<br />

was recently overrun by more<br />

than 100 teenagers, prompting<br />

an emergency meeting.<br />

Club commodore Richard<br />

Ineson said some of the<br />

committee met last week after<br />

crowds of young people using<br />

the club’s pontoon ignored<br />

requests to move out of the<br />

way.<br />

Mr Ineson said the<br />

situation had been “out of<br />

control.”<br />

“We couldn’t even drive our<br />

IRBs with outboards up to the<br />

pontoon there were so many people<br />

in the water and they wouldn’t<br />

get out.”<br />

No matter what he said, the<br />

young people simply “gave . . .<br />

the middle finger” and ignored<br />

him, Mr Ineson said. “They were<br />

really abusive.”<br />

The club’s pontoon in Moncks<br />

Bay has been used by the public<br />

for the past 25 years without any<br />

problems, but hot weather and<br />

school holidays have made it a<br />

popular spot with teenagers this<br />

summer.<br />

Mr Ineson said he was reluctant<br />

to call police because<br />

everyone in the area would have<br />

to have been moved, including<br />

families.<br />

“It was very stressful.”<br />

The club had never had problems<br />

before, said Mr Ineson, but<br />

the influx this summer had been<br />

creating issues.<br />

An external tap on the clubhouse<br />

was vandalised last week<br />

and litter is regularly left strewn<br />

around.<br />

The club has members-only<br />

rights over the area, from the<br />

car park to the slipway but it has<br />

always left it open for the public<br />

to use.<br />

“We want the community to<br />

use it and respect it,” said<br />

former club commodore Jo<br />

Hooker.<br />

She said people needed to be<br />

responsible.<br />

The following day Mr Ineson<br />

closed the area between 9am-<br />

3.30pm for a regatta but said he<br />

had had to police it. “If I wasn’t<br />

there, they would have climbed<br />

the rope and ignored the sign.”<br />

The club has asked the City to<br />

Sumner Community Patrol to<br />

visit because people were staying<br />

well into the evening.<br />

It is also looking at putting<br />

more signage up in the area.<br />

“The only consolation is school<br />

holidays are ending soon so we<br />

hope it won’t be anywhere near<br />

as bad,” said Mr Ineson.<br />

RETURNED: John<br />

Edmonds asked the<br />

city council to put the<br />

‘s’ back into Linwood’s<br />

Edmond St, which was<br />

originally named after<br />

his great-grandfather.<br />

THE ‘S’ will be returned to<br />

a street named after the man<br />

behind a Kiwi kitchen icon<br />

more than a century after it was<br />

mysteriously removed.<br />

Linwood’s Edmond St will be<br />

corrected to Edmonds St after<br />

Christchurch businessman and<br />

philanthropist Thomas John<br />

Edmonds.<br />

He founded Edmonds Sure to<br />

Rise baking powder.<br />

The Linwood-Central-<br />

Heathcote Community Board<br />

approved the change last week.<br />

The street was named after T J<br />

Edmonds in 1878. But somehow<br />

after 1893, it was altered and the<br />

‘s’ was removed for no apparent<br />

reason.<br />

T J Edmonds’ great grandson,<br />

John Edmonds, asked the city<br />

council if the spelling could be<br />

corrected last year.<br />

To do so, the city council<br />

had to consult with the street’s<br />

residents.<br />

One responded saying while<br />

they did not have an issue with<br />

the renaming, they were concerned<br />

it could cause confusion<br />

with mail delivery<br />

and they would<br />

need to change<br />

their address with<br />

organisations such<br />

as the Inland Revenue<br />

Department.<br />

However, city<br />

council staff said<br />

there were no<br />

other streets in<br />

the city with a<br />

similar name, so<br />

there would be no<br />

confusion with mail<br />

delivery.<br />

Staff said while inconvenient,<br />

changing addresses with those<br />

organisations was easier now<br />

because it could be done online.<br />

John Edmonds said he was<br />

“very happy” to hear his greatgrandfather’s<br />

legacy was being<br />

restored.<br />

“It’s a courtesy that’s well warranted<br />

. . . and I’m sure he would<br />

appreciate it as well. He was very<br />

conscious of the future,” he said.<br />

It would cost $500 to install a<br />

T J Edmonds had<br />

the gardens created<br />

around his factory,<br />

which was built in<br />

1923.<br />

1990, it still appears<br />

Couple’s love for penguins<br />

Woolston<br />

street may<br />

be made<br />

one-way<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

A SECTION of Woolston’s<br />

Cumnor Tce may become<br />

one-way.<br />

The city council is seeking<br />

feedback on part of the Heathcote<br />

Expressway cycleyway on<br />

Cumnor Tce between Garlands<br />

Rd and Marshall St.<br />

At a meeting last year, the city<br />

council infrastructure transport<br />

and environment committee<br />

agreed that an option for<br />

increasing the width of the<br />

cycleway on Cumnor Tce should<br />

be explored, including the option<br />

to convert it to a one-way<br />

street.<br />

As detailed design investigations<br />

progressed, concerns were<br />

raised by staff about the potential<br />

impact on ecological values<br />

along this section of the route, a<br />

city council report said.<br />

Cumnor Tce, between<br />

Maunsell St and Garlands Rd,<br />

is already one-way and north<br />

of Marshall St would remain<br />

two-way.<br />

The public can give feedback<br />

on the proposal via the city<br />

council’s website.<br />

“ALL YOU need is love, and a<br />

penguin,” said the sign on the<br />

front door.<br />

It’s the perfect slogan for the<br />

couple who live inside.<br />

Halswell’s Kristina Schutt and<br />

Thomas Stracke have been looking<br />

after underweight and injured<br />

penguins at their suburban<br />

home for the past eight years.<br />

Their organisation, Christchurch<br />

Penguin Rehabilitation, is<br />

licensed by the Department of<br />

Conservation.<br />

The German couple, who also<br />

work part-time as intensive care<br />

nurses at Christchurch Hospital,<br />

fell in love with penguins after<br />

seeing the birds at Oamaru when<br />

they visited New Zealand in the<br />

1990s.<br />

The current penguin breeding<br />

season, which runs from<br />

December-May, is their busiest<br />

yet with a peak of up to 14<br />

penguins in their care at one<br />

time.<br />

Their current charges are all<br />

white-flippered penguins, except<br />

one very precious yellow-eyed<br />

penguin chick that is covered in<br />

a downy, brown coat.<br />

It has been named Fluffy and<br />

was brought in underweight<br />

from Shell Bay, Banks Peninsula.<br />

The yellow-eyed chick is one<br />

of only three hatched on Banks<br />

Peninsula this season and the<br />

Artisan Homes<br />

Builders of superior homes.<br />

Built to last.<br />

only one known to have survived.<br />

Although Fluffy is still on<br />

medication for an infection, the<br />

chick is moving around and will<br />

hopefully be able to return to<br />

the wild after a couple of months<br />

with Christchurch Penguin<br />

Rehabilitation.<br />

“We’re doing everything possible<br />

for this little guy,” Ms Schutt<br />

said.<br />

Most of the birds are brought<br />

in by members of the public who<br />

come across them around the<br />

coast, or they are found by city<br />

council or DOC rangers.<br />

At first, the chicks are given<br />

syringes filled with clear fluids<br />

to rehydrate them before they<br />

move on to a grey paste that<br />

Mr Stracke described as a “fish<br />

smoothie” for a few days. Then<br />

they are fed small salmon.<br />

Ms Schutt said warmer sea<br />

temperatures are making life<br />

difficult for penguin chicks this<br />

year. They find it harder to feed<br />

because the fish tend to stay in<br />

deeper waters where it is cooler<br />

making them harder for juveniles<br />

to catch.<br />

She and Mr Stracke are handfeeding<br />

two white-flippered<br />

penguins which couldn’t survive<br />

in the wild when they arrived.<br />

They are also looking after an<br />

adult white-flippered penguin<br />

with a deep seal bite on its back.<br />

It needed surgery at Hornby<br />

Veterinary Centre.<br />

City council ranger project<br />

manager Andrew Crossland said<br />

the city is lucky to have such<br />

skilled and dedicated penguin<br />

rehabilitators.<br />

“They’re doing a great service<br />

by saving our local penguin species<br />

and returning the birds to<br />

the wild.”<br />

The penguins are given a name<br />

after 48 hours, Mr Stracke said.<br />

Often they name the bird after<br />

the person who brings it in, so<br />

one of their feathered patients is<br />

called Steve.<br />

When the birds have recovered,<br />

they are released as close<br />

as possible to the location where<br />

they were found.<br />

Mr Stracke said it’s satisfying<br />

to see rescued birds set free.<br />

“It’s a good feeling to have done<br />

something.”<br />

He said dog owners should<br />

keep their pets on a leash as loose<br />

dogs can be a threat to penguin<br />

chicks.<br />

•Any penguins found<br />

should be placed in a box<br />

and kept in a cool, quiet<br />

place before calling DOC,<br />

Fight to reopen Kennedys Bush track<br />

Halswell<br />

Community<br />

Project<br />

chairwoman<br />

Chrys Horn<br />

says a lack<br />

of action<br />

at the Kennedys Bush<br />

track is preventing it<br />

from being reopened<br />

KENNEDYS BUSH track is a<br />

paper road line that provides<br />

walking, running and biking<br />

access from Halswell to<br />

Summit Rd.<br />

It also provides access to an<br />

awesome network of tracks<br />

in Ōhinetahi Reserve above<br />

Governors Bay, as well as<br />

Kennedys Bush and east and<br />

west along the Port Hills. It has<br />

been well used for decades.<br />

Since the Port Hills fire, the<br />

track has been closed, with<br />

the city council citing health<br />

and safety concerns. There are<br />

burned trees that could fall over<br />

the track, and the city council<br />

can’t open it until they have<br />

been cleared. The issue is that<br />

there is little sign of them being<br />

cleared and now there are huge<br />

fences top and bottom of the<br />

track. Increasingly, it appears we<br />

may have a landowner who is<br />

trying to stop public access.<br />

Other affected Port Hills<br />

tracks, including Christchurch<br />

Adventure Park, reopened<br />

relatively quickly. Inquiries in<br />

October indicated that the track<br />

would reopen on December<br />

31. Now we are being told<br />

March 31, but this seems very<br />

uncertain.<br />

It would appear that if we<br />

simply accept these changes<br />

without comment, getting this<br />

track reopened could get a<br />

whole lot harder.<br />

I hope I am wrong, but<br />

communities across New<br />

Zealand have lost walking track<br />

access like this because they<br />

haven’t chosen to defend it. If<br />

very few people act, it makes it<br />

much easier for landowners to<br />

get away with obstructing the<br />

public.<br />

If you want to make sure our<br />

community gets back access<br />

to Kennedys Bush track, then<br />

contact the city council and/<br />

or your local councillor and let<br />

them know.<br />

Ask for detailed information<br />

and updates. Talk to others<br />

about this, and get them<br />

involved too. Join the Kennedys<br />

Bush track network to keep up<br />

with developments.<br />

Find us on Facebook or<br />

email kbtracknetwork@gmail.<br />

com for more information. It is<br />

more fun and more effective if<br />

we all work together to achieve<br />

this.<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Police dog pioneer passes away<br />

BOND: Harold Surgenor with his first dog Axel One and his<br />

son Carl in 1958.<br />

PHOTO: NZ POLICE<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

HAROLD THOMAS Surgenor,<br />

a pioneer of how police dogs are<br />

used now, has died aged 86.<br />

Mr Surgenor’s wife Ruth said<br />

he was one of the first officers in<br />

the country to push for the use of<br />

dogs in the police, highlighting<br />

their versatility and ability to<br />

perform many of the tasks police<br />

dogs are used for today.<br />

Mr Surgenor, who lived in<br />

Ryan St, Linwood, for many<br />

years, passed away suddenly in<br />

his Ilam home on January 16.<br />

Canterbury district<br />

commander Superintendent John<br />

Price said his legacy lives on in<br />

the important role police dogs<br />

play in today’s society.<br />

“We owe him a debt of thanks.<br />

He set up what we now have and<br />

we will forever be grateful to<br />

him,” he said.<br />

“Now we have dogs that do all<br />

manner of things like searching<br />

out drugs, money, bombs and a<br />

whole range of other uses.”<br />

A retired police sergeant, Mr<br />

Surgenor was one of the first<br />

officers to train a police dog in<br />

New Zealand after he picked up<br />

Axel One from Trentham, Upper<br />

Hutt, in October 1956.<br />

The pup was born on a boat<br />

coming from England and was<br />

selected by Mr Surgenor over one<br />

that was partially trained because<br />

he wanted a fresh dog to work<br />

with.<br />

Another of his colleagues,<br />

Colin Guppy,<br />

of Wellington,<br />

took the<br />

partially<br />

trained dog<br />

to become<br />

the first dog<br />

handler in the<br />

country.<br />

Mr Surgenor<br />

had three dogs<br />

during his<br />

career – Axel<br />

One, Axel<br />

Two and Axel<br />

Three.<br />

But he was<br />

almost denied<br />

his dream job<br />

of becoming a<br />

police officer<br />

when he was<br />

told he was too small to join.<br />

“He had to fill out as a young<br />

person and the police told him<br />

to do some manual work to get<br />

bigger. So he worked in a gold<br />

mine on the West Coast,” Mrs<br />

Surgenor said.<br />

The couple met shortly after<br />

Mr Surgenor had joined the<br />

police in Wellington. They were<br />

due to mark their 63rd wedding<br />

anniversary next month. He<br />

Harold Surgenor<br />

spent time in the King Country<br />

and Wanganui chasing prison<br />

escapees, and was sometimes<br />

away for weeks at a time, Mrs<br />

Surgenor<br />

said. They<br />

moved from<br />

Wanganui<br />

to Ryan St in<br />

1965.<br />

Mr Surgenor<br />

was head of<br />

the police dog<br />

unit which<br />

covered most<br />

of the South<br />

Island.<br />

His first<br />

dog, Axel One,<br />

was buried<br />

at the couple’s<br />

Ryan St<br />

property, Mrs<br />

Surgenor said.<br />

Mr Surgenor<br />

was farewelled<br />

at a service in the Westpark<br />

Chapel, Burnside, which was<br />

attended by about 200 people.<br />

“He was a dedicated and proud<br />

policeman,” Mrs Surgenor<br />

said.<br />

“I was very proud to be his<br />

wife and the letters and emails<br />

detailing how respected he<br />

was and admired in the police<br />

force have been incredible,” she<br />

said.<br />

Opawa cadet goes<br />

into the wild<br />

OPAWA’S Courtney Rae took<br />

part in the inaugural Exercise<br />

Takahe, a week-long adventure<br />

camp in Arthur’s Pass for the<br />

New Zealand Cadet Forces.<br />

NZCF is a youth training<br />

organisation which provides<br />

military-based leadership,<br />

personal development and<br />

adventure training to those aged<br />

13-18.<br />

During the recent exercise,<br />

the cadets went through Cave<br />

Stream, abseiled at Castle Hill<br />

and flew over a river on a flying<br />

fox.<br />

They also treated some<br />

injured patients after a mock<br />

‘boulder accident’, bonded<br />

with their teammates on a low<br />

rope course, floated down the<br />

Waimakariri River and rode<br />

in a Unimog. An unexpected<br />

storm with lightning, thunder,<br />

rain and hail provided a bit of<br />

excitement, but otherwise the<br />

weather was calm and hot.<br />

Women relish challenge<br />

Kathmandu<br />

Coast to Coast<br />

male domination<br />

changing<br />

HISTORICALLY THE Kathmandu Coast<br />

to Coast has been a male dominated race,<br />

but that is definitely changing.<br />

The event is full for the first time in a<br />

decade, with organisers and title sponsor<br />

Kathmandu challenging more females to<br />

take it on, a rallying call that is gaining<br />

some real momentum and having an impact<br />

on the event in a number of ways.<br />

Jess De Bont is a working mum who<br />

has competed in the event and now<br />

throws her energy into running a youth<br />

programme, training a new generation of<br />

multi-sport athletes.<br />

“It’s wonderful to see so many females<br />

stepping up and being involved in Coast<br />

to Coast whether it be in a team, tandem,<br />

support crew role or some other way of<br />

getting behind the event,” she said.<br />

Ms De Bont established the Coast to<br />

Coast Rangers, a programme for disadvantaged<br />

youth in Canterbury<br />

She is one of a growing number of<br />

women who are making their mark on<br />

the event in different ways.<br />

“Our programme is about making the<br />

event accessible to teenagers who would<br />

not have had the opportunity otherwise,”<br />

she said.<br />

“The Kathmandu Coast to Coast is accessible,<br />

achievable and fun, and there’s a<br />

real social element to training and getting<br />

into the outdoors. Kathmandu are all<br />

about making the outdoors accessible to<br />

everyone and the race is the same so it’s a<br />

great fit.”<br />

Ms De Bont says for her east Christchurch<br />

teenagers it has been about getting<br />

outside and exploring the wonderful<br />

backyard that Christchurch and Canterbury<br />

offers, just as much as it has been<br />

about training.<br />

“They have biked, run and kayaked over<br />

places they never knew existed. Exposing<br />

them to the great outdoors has been an<br />

absolute privilege. They embrace each<br />

week in the Port Hills with enthusiasm<br />

and gratitude,” said Ms De Bont.<br />

This is the third year the Coast to Coast<br />

Rangers have competed in the event with<br />

16-year-old Emmy Slott, competing in the<br />

kayak leg.<br />

Emmy has two fellow Linwood College<br />

team mates competing with her in a twoday,<br />

three person team, with the other<br />

two doing the cycling and running legs,<br />

making the challenge of completing the<br />

243km journey across the South Island<br />

very do-able.<br />

“They will be supported by their friend,<br />

Aleisha, who is keen to see the event from<br />

a support crew role and then compete in<br />

years to come,” said Ms De Bont.<br />

“Emmy has been training hard these<br />

past few months, getting up at 6am for<br />

kayak training more than once a week has<br />

been a challenge in itself.<br />

“For me, it is all about giving these east<br />

Christchurch teenagers opportunities<br />

they perhaps wouldn’t normally have and<br />

taking them to places they haven’t been,<br />

encouraging them to step outside their<br />

comfort zones, which they do on a regular<br />

basis. Some people don’t step outside<br />

their comfort zones all year. Our<br />

teenagers do it each week when I ask<br />

them to participate in various activities,<br />

TRAINING: Jess De Bont with Finn<br />

Pierce who is a part of her<br />

Coast to Coast Rangers group for<br />

youths in Canterbury.<br />

challenges and races. It is inspiring to see.<br />

As a working mum and an athlete myself,<br />

I know all that the multi-tasking busy<br />

mums have to do. Trying to fit in kids<br />

activities, nutritional cooking, training<br />

and working is a juggling act in itself,<br />

but it is a very special thing to be able to<br />

compete and have your children waiting<br />

and cheering so proudly as their mum<br />

crosses the finish line, smiles all round,”<br />

said Ms De Bont.<br />

Kathmandu Coast to Coast full<br />

– women’s race shaping up for<br />

titanic battle<br />

More women competing is highlighted<br />

even further with the women’s World<br />

Championship Longest Day event shaping<br />

up as one to watch this year.<br />

The late entry of two-time champion<br />

and three-time adventure racing world<br />

champion, Sophie Hart, has added some<br />

real spice to an already deep field for the<br />

women’s one-day race. The 34-year-old<br />

Lyttelton GP is a two-time winner of the<br />

women’s one-day event with her last win<br />

coming in 2013. Her first win in 2011 in a<br />

time of 12hr 10min was only 1min<br />

outside the women’s individual record<br />

set by Christchurch’s Andrea Murray in<br />

1997.<br />

The women’s field is the strongest in<br />

years, led by defending champion and<br />

four-time winner Elina Ussher; last year’s<br />

runner-up, South African Robyn Owen,<br />

who was leading the race into the final<br />

bike leg before being overhauled by Ussher;<br />

Christchurch-based German Simone<br />

Maier, who last raced in the event in 2015<br />

when she was second; and Whakatane’s<br />

Corrine O’Donnell, a strong runner who<br />

always makes her presence felt.<br />

Former world champion kayaker and<br />

Olympian Teneal Hatton is another one<br />

to watch in the women’s one-day event.<br />

Hatton was third in November’s ICF<br />

ocean ski world champs in Hong Kong,<br />

racing as the event’s defending world<br />

champion.<br />

Leading Australian multi-sport athlete<br />

Alex Hunt and New Zealander Bobby<br />

Dean loom as men’s defending World<br />

Championship Longest Day champion<br />

Sam Clark’s biggest challenges. Clark<br />

stormed home last year to pass Braden<br />

Currie on the final bike leg and claim<br />

back-to-back wins in the World Championship<br />

longest day event.<br />

Dean has raced for top adventure racing<br />

team Team Bivouac inov-8 and was 11th<br />

in the 2016 Kathmandu Coast to Coast<br />

and fourth last year while Hunt is back for<br />

his third crack at his favourite event and is<br />

aiming to repeat his 2016 podium effort.<br />

Christchurch United<br />

Academy growing<br />

at rapid pace<br />

The Christchurch United Football<br />

Club and its high-performance academy<br />

continues to develop at a rapid pace.<br />

The arrival of high-profile Academy<br />

Director Colin Williamson is another major<br />

step in the development of the academy<br />

based at the world-class Christchurch<br />

Football Centre (CFC) on Yaldhurst Road.<br />

Williamson worked with some of the best<br />

coaches in the Netherlands during his seven<br />

years at professional clubs PSV Eindhoven<br />

and Roda JC. He will be working closely<br />

with the club’s Brazilian Head Coach<br />

Fernando Lambert in developing the other<br />

coaches at Christchurch United.<br />

This year the academy has expanded to<br />

include an U13, two U14 and an U15 squad.<br />

Christchurch United also offers preacademy<br />

programmes from U6 to U12 and<br />

will expand its community programmes<br />

for players from the age of 4 to 17, with<br />

additional pitches at Yaldhurst, as well as<br />

the historical base at Spreydon Domain.<br />

Players can join the community teams<br />

from $119 a season, and still get the<br />

benefit of the professional coaching staff<br />

supporting the volunteer coaches.<br />

The academy and CFC were created<br />

by Christchurch businessman Slava<br />

Meyn in 2014 to provide all-year football<br />

development with top quality coaching.<br />

The academy in 2016 merged with<br />

the Christchurch United and last year<br />

dominated many of the junior leagues.<br />

1 in 2 people<br />

deficient in B12<br />

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and<br />

as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.<br />

Scientists at Rush University Medical<br />

Center found those most deficient<br />

in vitamin B12 to have the smallest<br />

brain mass & the lowest scores on<br />

tests measuring short-term memory,<br />

concentration & brain performance.<br />

Another study showed that older people<br />

with higher levels of B12 in their blood<br />

have bigger, healthier brains & score higher<br />

on cognitive tests than those with lower<br />

levels. Yet another recent landmark study<br />

showed that B12 supplementation slows<br />

the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage<br />

& declining cognitive function. B12 is<br />

essential for energy production, cell<br />

health, regulation of mood & sleep cycles,<br />

nerve health & repair, & prevention of<br />

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular<br />

risk factor that is known to cause damage<br />

& plaque in the blood vessels. It can also<br />

increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard<br />

researchers found<br />

a 34% decrease<br />

risk of vision<br />

loss in a study<br />

of participants<br />

aged 40+ who<br />

supplemented<br />

with B12. Another<br />

study<br />

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in<br />

neW<br />

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.<br />

The reason so many people lack B12<br />

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb<br />

it declining with age as the digestive<br />

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux<br />

medication & other drugs further reduce<br />

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in<br />

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual<br />

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth &<br />

thru bypassing the digestive tract have<br />

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in<br />

the body.<br />

Dilo Oil – The Remarkable<br />

Skin Rejuvenator<br />

Until Rachel<br />

Hunter’s popular<br />

TV series “TOUR<br />

OF BEAUTY” Dilo<br />

Oil was relatively<br />

unknown, being one<br />

of the best-kept secrets<br />

of the Pacific Islands. It<br />

may however be the number<br />

one natural beauty oil available<br />

as it possesses powerful natural skin<br />

regeneration and healing properties.<br />

According to ethnobotanist Chris<br />

Kilham, Dilo (pronounced dee-lo)<br />

Oil is a powerful skin regenerator as<br />

it is one of the most effective agents<br />

in promoting the regeneration and<br />

formation of new tissue, thereby<br />

accelerating wound healing and<br />

the growth of healthy skin. Dilo<br />

Oil is super-absorbing and can<br />

penetrate all three layers of the<br />

skin, offering exceptional cell<br />

hydration and regeneration.<br />

As well as this, Dilo Oil has<br />

potent anti-inflammatory,<br />

antimicrobial, antifungal and<br />

antioxidant properties.<br />

Traditionally, Dilo Oil is used to keep the<br />

skin young and youthful and for just about<br />

any skin complaint. Some of the conditions<br />

for which it is considered helpful include<br />

abrasions, cuts and cracks, acne and<br />

acne scars, pimples, blemishes, stretch<br />

marks, wrinkles, blisters, burns (including<br />

chemical and radiation), diabetic sores,<br />

rashes, shaving irritation, dry or scaly skin,<br />

eczema, psoriasis,<br />

dermatitis, herpes<br />

sores (cold-sores),<br />

insect bites and<br />

stings, rheumatism,<br />

pain, sciatica,<br />

shingles, sunburn,<br />

rosacea, athlete’s foot, skin<br />

eruptions, warts, skin ulcers<br />

and sores, nappy rash and almost<br />

any other skin ailment and often with<br />

incredible results.<br />

Many beauty and skincare products<br />

on the market today contain unnatural<br />

ingredients that can be toxic and may<br />

even contribute to disease. Generally<br />

the benefits are exaggerated<br />

and often only temporary or<br />

camouflage. Marshall’s Dilo Oil is<br />

100% pure and certified organic.<br />

It has been cold-pressed from the<br />

Dilo nut and contains absolutely<br />

no additives. Polynesians and<br />

Southeast Asians have revered<br />

Dilo Oil for centuries believing it<br />

to be a sacred gift of nature and<br />

the Gods. Dilo oil stimulates<br />

and supports the skins natural<br />

healing process through the growth of new<br />

healthy skin tissue. I personally believe<br />

it is a remarkable product and highly<br />

recommend it to everyone. A 50ml bottle is<br />

$19.90 and 100ml only $29.90.<br />

NATURAL HEALING & BEAUTY OIL<br />

As seen on Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty<br />

Revered for centuries by Polynesians & Southeast Asians for its remarkable<br />

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

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

as it can penetrate all three layers of the skin offering exceptional cell hydration<br />

& regeneration. It has a unique ability to stimulate the growth of healthy skin<br />

cells & this gives it powerful anti-aging & healing properties that can help<br />

reduce lines, blemishes, scars & damage to the skin. It also possesses<br />

anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal & antioxidant properties.<br />

Dilo Oil Supports<br />

• Anti-aging & skin regeneration, helps reduce lines, blemishes, scars &<br />

stretch marks<br />

• Skin hydration<br />

• Skin repair & growth, helps feed the skin & stimulate healthy new cells<br />

What’s happening<br />

at Lady Wigram<br />

Retirement Village?<br />

It’s been a busy few years for The<br />

Golden Healthcare Group with their latest<br />

development of Lady Wigram Retirement<br />

Village on Kittyhawk Road. The first villas<br />

were occupied in August 2015 and now 101<br />

villas are completed.<br />

In December, the club house opened<br />

which provides a bowling green, hair<br />

dressing salon, restaurant and bar, billiard<br />

room, movie theatre and library. The Club<br />

House has all the trimmings, including 16<br />

one and two bedrooms Apartments. The<br />

next stage will also include a swimming<br />

pool, gym and a further 14 Apartments.<br />

When speaking with one of their<br />

residents about how he feels about the new<br />

Club house, Mr Havill said “everyone is<br />

so excited about it opening, we have all<br />

been watching it very closely’. Mr Havill is<br />

fascinated as to how the fountain works.<br />

He has lived in the village for the past<br />

few years, enjoying his new life style and<br />

making friends. He has also picked up new<br />

hobbies including learning to play mahjong,<br />

“I love it, I had never played in my life”. Mr<br />

Havill owned his own home for 44 years<br />

and in that time he maintained the house,<br />

painted it, did this... did that. “We don’t<br />

have to do that anymore, this is my place for<br />

the moment. Every villa is different, even<br />

121 Skyhawk Road<br />

though they look the same. But you make it<br />

your own”. One thing Mr Havill likes at this<br />

age is “the gates shut at night, we can get in<br />

but no one else can and that is an additional<br />

sense of security for us”.<br />

Owner John Tooby says “our residents<br />

are very involved in the continuing<br />

development of the village, they share our<br />

pride in making this a great place to live. It’s<br />

a real community and it continues to grow”.<br />

ARE YOU READY<br />

TO DOWNSIZE?<br />

Paying rates for a house that’s<br />

too big? Paying maintenance and<br />

heating costs for space you don’t use?<br />

A move to one of our<br />

architecturally designed villas<br />

at McKenzie Lifestyle Village in<br />

Geraldine will cut those costs.<br />

Three villas are available for<br />

occupation now, priced from<br />

$355,000.<br />

Hydrate to elevate<br />

We all know drinking water is important, but the<br />

majority of us simply don’t drink enough even though<br />

we know it makes us feel great when we do. We look<br />

at the benefits and motivate you to drink more with a<br />

few tips on how to make it just a little more palatable.<br />

With over a quarter of Kiwis consuming<br />

less than two glasses of water a day and only<br />

5% drinking more than the recommended<br />

eight, the message obviously hasn’t hit<br />

home on the importance of hydrating our<br />

body.<br />

A recent survey conducted by<br />

SodaStream found that Cantabrians are<br />

particularly guilty when it comes to their<br />

water intake.<br />

With 82% drinking less than six glasses<br />

of water a day, but with over 85% admitting<br />

they feel healthier when they drink more<br />

water, something needs to be done to<br />

bridge the gap in terms of what we know<br />

to be true and what we’re actually doing<br />

about it.<br />

This same survey revealed that although<br />

41% of us limit how many soft drinks we<br />

consume due to our concerns over sugar<br />

content, the same number of people said<br />

tea or coffee is this their number one drink<br />

of choice.<br />

Some people even believe that the water<br />

consumed in their cup of Joe constitutes<br />

part of their water intake. This is a fallacy.<br />

As caffeine actually dehydrates us, as<br />

does alcohol too, it means we need to<br />

drink even more water to compensate.<br />

Not so surprisingly the reason we don’t<br />

drink nearly enough water is that we<br />

simply forget. Now with apps you can<br />

download direct to your smart phone,<br />

there are no more excuses.<br />

Further studies proved that people who<br />

had a SodaStream machine in their homes<br />

were more likely to drink more water.<br />

In fact, the study showed that people<br />

drank 30% more water.<br />

For those of us who aren’t used<br />

to drinking water like it’s going<br />

out of fashion, there are plenty of ways<br />

to increase the fun factor while still<br />

being healthy.<br />

By simply turning tap water into<br />

sparkling water with a SodaStream<br />

machine and adding a splash of fresh<br />

lemon juice or naturally squeezed fruit<br />

juice, is bound to have a positive impact on<br />

our health and wellbeing.<br />
