Shedding 20kg for Coast to Coast

• By Julia Evans

MIKE DAVIDSON lost almost 20kg

as he ran, cycled and kayaked more

than 2500km in preparation for the

Kathmandu Coast to Coast.

It was the first time the city councillor

for the Papanui Ward has competed

in such a gruelling event, though

Page 6 Page 7

he said the Coast to Coast had always

been on his “radar.”

But he already has plans to shed

more than an hour off his 16hr 41min

time.

“It’s always something I’ve wanted

to tick off. As soon as I decided to do

it, I had to change the way I ate, start

exercising more,” he said.

That was about three months ago,

which Cr Davidson said didn’t give

him long to train.

“When daylight saving started, that’s

when I started. It was hard to balance

work and family life, so the Christmas

period was good, that’s when I could

really concentrate on training.”

Public

urged

to fight

proposed

bus cuts

• By Julia Evans

BUS USERS in Papanui are being

urged to fight a proposed cut to two

local routes.

More than 110,000 patrons

will be affected by Environment

Canterbury’s draft Long Term Plan

proposal to cut six of the city’s lowest

performing bus routes including

two from Papanui – the 107 Styx

Mill to Northlands and the 108

Casebrook to Northlands.

But city councillor Mike

Davidson is calling on people to

submit on the plan, which opens

for feedback on Monday, in a bid to

keep the bus routes.

“I urge people to submit on

ECan’s draft Long Term Plan and

ask that they retain these bus

routes,” he said.

ECan’s senior manager public

transport Stewart Gibbon said there

are no services that cover the same

routes, which carried a combined

total of 110,664 in the last financial

year.

“At this stage, there are no

alternative services proposed,” Mr

Gibbon said.

Cr Davidson said: “It’s not good

enough,” that ECan hasn’t given

residents any alternatives.

“It’s disappointing to see it’s the

only option being put forward,” he

said. •Turn to page 4

THERE’S ONLY one way to stop

Environment Canterbury cutting bus

services in Papanui: People power.

And that is what local city councillor

Mike Davidson is calling on as he prepares

to fight the change that could affect more

than 100,000 commuters. Submissions on ECan’s plan and the

axeing of other bus routes across Christchurch, open on Monday.

If there is overwhelming support for the routes to stay, ECan

will be duty bound to keep them. It’s called democracy. And we

still live in a democratic society. Submissions open on Monday.

And on another Mike Davidson note (also page 1), well done

for completing the Coast to Coast, and losing about 20kg getting

there.

Student to take on Olympic champ

• By Julia Evans

USAIN BOLT once raced

a cheetah and lost by four

seconds.

Now another iconic race is set

to take place as a Christchurch

Boys’ High School rower will go

head to head against two-time

Olympic gold medallist Eric

Murray in an erg challenge.

The student, who is yet to

be chosen, will have to be the

school’s best as Murray holds

the world record on a rowing

machine of 18,728m in an hour.

Murray will take on the

student over 500m at CBHS on

March 1.

With Maadi Cup on March

19-24, the school’s rowing teams

have organised the event as a

fundraiser to help get them to

the regatta at Lake Ruataniwha,

Twizel.

Attendees will be able to guess

how close the CBHS rower can

get to Murray’s time, with a

prize going to the person with

the closest guess.

Organiser Marco Woelders

Cup was with Pukekohe High

School in 1997. But it wasn’t

until 1999 that he was part of

the winning under-17 quad at

the regatta.

He won his first world championship

medal as a member of

the national coxless four at the

2007 World Rowing Championships,

where he met Hamish

Bond.

The coxless pair then went on

to win three world championships,

two Olympic golds and a

couple of Halberg awards.

Murray will spend some

time fielding questions from

the crowd while meeting and

chatting with audience members

throughout the evening.

“We will also name the two

newest Laszlo boats joining

our fleet ready for racing at the

Councillor sheds the kilos

TRAINING: Mike Davidson lost

almost 20kg during training for

the Kathmandu Coast to Coast.

•From page 1

It was a matter of slowly introducing

more fitness into his

regime, which built up a pace, he

said.

Training included daily runs,

cycles and the odd hike through

Goat Pass and Mt Herbert – he

clocked up more than 2500km

before the 243km race.

Cr Davidson has been an avid

cyclist for a while now. Though,

he’s not too fond of running,

which made the hill run through

Goat Pass during the Coast to

Coast more than a challenge.

“I’ve never been a great fan of

running, just a bit around Hagley

Park. I’ve played rugby all my life,

my knees aren’t great,” he said.

Though Cr Davidson admits he

is a naturally competitive person,

he said he said he “wasn’t happy”

with his time during the run.

“I was in fourth place for my

age group when I went into the

run, but then I slipped right

back,” he said.

“It makes me realise with a few

little tweaks, I could get there . . .

I want to knock off another hour

or an hour and a half.”

Cr Davidson said the mental

and physical challenges were

worth it for the “spectacular”

scenery along the race.

“The kayak through the Waimakariri

was incredible. I’ve not

been through it before,” he said.

“It was my favourite part. 67km

is a long way on a slow kayak,

but you get to take in some of the

amazing scenery.”

However, nothing could quite

top the feeling of running up

the sandy dunes and onto New

Brighton beach.

“Since then I’ve done a little

bit of indulging. I’ve got a sweet

tooth,” he said.

But with Le Race and the

Christchurch Marathon next on

his list, training is already back

on the programme.

SERVICE: The public can give feedback on Environment

Canterbury’s draft Long Term Plan to cut bus routes.

Users urged to fight bus cuts

•From page 1

“I have a lot of elderly people

ringing me up saying they’re

struggling to use the bus system

as it is, that’s only going to get

worse.”

The routes are proposed to

be cut bid to plug a $4 million

shortfall in ECan’s public transport

finance.

Said the draft plan: “We recognise

that in any scenario there

will be people affected by the

proposed changes. We are looking

for the right balance so that

we can maintain a sustainable

service for the majority of users

at the best value.”

The reason for the cuts is

largely due to patronage across

the city still only reaching 80 per

cent pre-earthquake standards.

But Cr Davidson said the

NOR’WEST NEWS

routes are an “essential social

service” for people who have

no other means of travel that

should not have to rely on “fare

box recovery” to survive.

“I just find it not good enough

that ECan hasn’t told residents

how much it would cost to keep

the routes.”

He said the focus seemed to

people on people coming in

from out of town, not Christchurch

residents who pay ECan

rates as well.

The proposal will be open for

feedback on www.ecan.govt.nz

from Monday until March 26.

Northcote Rd drivers ticketed

• By Bridget Rutherford

A SPEED camera on Northcote

Rd dished out more than twothirds

of the speeding tickets in

Canterbury on New Year’s Day.

Data released to Nor’West

News under the Official Information

Act

shows on New

Year’s Day 369

vehicles were

caught speeding

across the

region.

The most

Al Stewart

were from the

speed camera

on Northcote Rd where 239 tickets

were sent to motorists.

Another 59 were caught on

Main North Rd in Papanui.

The other 71 tickets were

handed out with 35 on State

Highway 80 at Pukaki, and 21 on

State Highway 7 at Waipara.

Eight were caught on State

Highway 7 at Waikari, and five

on State Highway 1 at Saltwater

Creek.

The data does not include

speeding tickets issued by police

officers on specific roads because

the location detail on those tickets

varied too much.

On New Year’s Day last year,

no vehicles were caught speeding

by cameras.

CAUGHT: Two thirds of speeding tickets on New Year’s Day

were from a camera on Northcote Rd.

However, 4513 vehicles were

caught speeding by cameras

throughout January that year,

with 758 on Harewood Rd

alone.

On Christmas Day, the speed

cameras deployed did not catch

any vehicles speeding.

That compared with 50

speeding tickets being issued

after drivers were caught by

cameras on the same day in

2016.

Canterbury Road Policing

manager Inspector Al Stewart

said speed was a concern as

an “aggravating factor” in any

crash, along with people not

wearing seat belts.

Inspector Stewart said on

Christmas, Boxing and New

Year’s days there was lower volumes

of traffic as families went

on holiday.

He said speed cameras moved

about every two hours, based on

risk.

“It’s not rocket science – the

faster you go, the bigger the mess

when you make a mistake and

crash.”

Bid to lower speed limit

is narrower than a typical road

corridor, speeds need to be kept

lower due to the mixed users in a

narrow width.

“To ensure safety with the

mixture of users of the street, a

30km/h speed limit will ensure

that vehicles are maintaining a

speed that allows them to stop if

needed for oncoming vehicles, or

children crossing the road unexpectedly.”

The report said it will also

create a safe speed for motorists

and cyclists to share the road.

“The existing speed humps

reduce vehicle speeds so the proposed

30km/h restriction will not

change the existing behaviour for

the majority of motorists but it

does signal to drivers that it is a

Uncanny twist to

helping sick man

• By Julia Evans

THE BELFAST Community

Network’s year has got off to a

good start. Staff helped save a

life.

On a day trip taking children

for a swim at Cass Bay,

community development

co-ordinators helped an elderly

woman who was on the phone

to St John, she was trying to get

help for her husband who was

in a lot of pain.

Community development

co-ordinator Candace Moir

said one of her colleagues noticed

the woman as they were

loading the children back onto

the bus.

“There was a man who had

got himself into a bit of trouble,

he was bent over . . . he had all

the signs of having a heart attack,”

she said.

The man was not having a

heart attack, but had taken an

antihistamine that morning,

which was reacting poorly with

his heart medication.

“We got him into the recovery

position and between

us, we supported him and

supported his wife until the

ambulance arrived.”

In an uncanny twist, the

man who needed help was a

neighbour of network chairman

Alan Hardy.

It was not until he was out of

hospital that the man remembered

the logo of Ms Moir’s

shirt, which said BCN, and

tracked them down.

“It’s such a small world, it just

came up in conversation and

Alan said the guy is actually

my neighbour,” she said.

But she said the main thing

was hearing he was doing well.

Virtual bid to get kids

cycling to school

• By Julia Evans

A VIRTUAL cycling

programme that would simulate

a child’s journey to school is

A report about the possibility

of developing a virtual cycling

programme was requested by

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board.

City council acting operations

manager transport Ryan

Rolston said the city council

is in the process of reviewing

education options to support

cycling to school.

“As part of the review, we are

also looking over any research

available on virtual reality as an

educational tool for cycling,” he

said.

If the programme is developed,

it would be the first of its

kind in the country.

Cycling Education System

the city council is part of.

The staff report will go back to

the board at its next meeting on

March 9. It will include costs to

implement the project and how

it could introduce children to

the cycling journey to school.

City councillor Mike Davidson

said the idea came out of a

cycling expo during ‘Biketober’

last October.

The board requested the

information following a bid

from Paparoa Street School to

ease congestion through narrow

streets around the area.

Instead of installing more

traffic calming measures, the

board decided to investigate the

simulation possibility, which

would then be promoted to

Paparoa Street School.

Mr Rolston said the city

council will be working with the

school on how it can support its

specific needs as a city council

options were not suitable.

Julier Roberts-Bye – I am

also a resident of Leacroft St. The

extra rubbish bins were removed

because of the people emptying

household rubbish in them. The

city council gave myself and my

neighbour extra rubbish bags.

We would empty the bins and

give picnickers a bag to put the

rubbish in. But my health has

deteriorated and we no longer get

bags given to us. This problem

has been around for a while.

positives about being a Northcote

pupil.

Some of these were having

our own heated swimming pool,

caring teachers and learning

assistants, kapa haka, learning

being fun and educational,

going on school camp to Living

Springs, having a big playground

and participating in activities

like ‘dancing like the stars’ and

gardening competitions.

We also have extremely

exciting changes coming up, with

community consultation around

the design of our future school

beginning later this year.

This will involve the

redevelopment of our school

curriculum, as well as the

refurbishment of our classroom

spaces.

to twice a week.

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

‘Overwhelming support’ to extend dog park

• By Julia Evans

SUPPORT IS mounting on a bid

to extend The Groynes dog park.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board member

Aaron Campbell said there had

been “overwhelming support”

of his proposal to extending the

Johns Rd dog park from its users.

Mr Campbell launched an online

petition to add land left over

from the Western Belfast Bypass

development to the back of the

dog park.

It has received more than

350 signatures and he has

spent several afternoons at the

park speaking with users and

collecting signatures.

“I’ve got about 100 signatures

now and spoken to a couple of

people at a time, so around 150

people . . . only a handful weren’t

interested,” he said.

Mr Campbell said people from

across the city would travel to use

the dog park.

“I spoke to people from Oxford,

Rangiora, North Canterbury . . .

but also Governors Bay and Mt

Pleasant,” he said.

It comes following a proposal,

which would see a part of a 31ha

empty lot leftover from the Western

Belfast Bypass added to the

Northwood dog park.

Said Mr Campbell: “Ninetynine

per cent of the infrastructure

is in place, including suitable

fencing for a dog park bordering

the motorway bypass but there

are no plans to utilise it. Allowing

dogs and their owners in is a logical

and cost-effective use of the

space.”

He launched his bid following

frustration with the slow

city council process and says he

simply wants the public to take

advantage of the space.

“It’s a work in progress. There’s

no long-term plan for the extension.

But I’m trying to get permission

to set up a poster and start

getting feedback from users,” Mr

Campbell said.

Custom-fitted

mouth guards

Besides all their regular services associated with the

making and repairing of dentures, Dentures Plus offers

custom-fitted mouth guards direct to the public.

Looking after one’s teeth is important,

but Kiwi’s love of sports, and being

involved in the physical contact that these

activities can involve, can put our teeth

and jaw in harm’s way! The solution is

a custom-fitted mouth guard, and that’s

where Dentures Plus comes in.

Besides all their regular services

associated with the making and repairing

of dentures, this practice offers customfitted

mouth guards direct to the

public. Mouth guards are an essential

part of playing sports – and becoming

compulsory in more sports each year.

“Not only do they help protect teeth, but

they may also help limit concussion and

jaw injuries.”

Over Ryan’s career he has dealt with

many of our top professional athletes in

the custom moulding and fitting of mouth

guards. Our mouth guards are made of

multiple layers which absorb the impacts

more effectively. “I like people to keep

their teeth, especially children. That’s

why we have a special offer for school

age kids on our heat- moulded rubber

mouth guards. These mouth guards are

custom-made for each child and

although children’s mouths and

teeth are still developing, the

mouth guard should last for a

season”.

There are just two appointments

needed – the first to take a

mould of the upper teeth and the

second to check that the mouth

guard is fitting properly and is

comfortable. “We have a large

range of colours and patterns to

choose from, whether it’s your

team colours or something to

show your personality”.

Dentures Plus is located at 396

Innes Road. Phone (03) 385 5517.

Open Monday – Thursday 8am –

5pm, and on Friday 8am – 2pm.

We also have some limited early

evening appointments available.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Modern diet

leads to illness!

It’s not what you eat but what you absorb

Two Australian Naturopaths Stephen

& Shane noticed at the end of the 20th

century more & more of their patients

were experiencing gut, bowel & digestive

issues that were often leading to more

serious chronic health conditions. Being

Naturopaths they wanted to find what was

going wrong & began extensive research.

What they found was although their clients

were generally eating good food they were

not obtaining all the nutrients required

for good health from this food. Further

research showed one of the main problems

was the digestive system, “it’s not what you

eat but what you absorb.” Another wellknown

problem is the soils the crops are

grown in have been depleted of many trace

elements & other nutrients that are known

to be essential for good health & therefore

the crops & food are also depleted. If we do

not obtain all the nutrients we require the

body will compensate to some degree but

a lack of too many nutrients will eventually

lead to health issues.

Based on this they developed VITAL

GREENS, a nutrient dense powdered

formula that provides superior absorption

as well as comprehensive nutrition. They

decided on a powdered formula that

could be made as a great tasting drink

because liquid nutrition is the easiest

way for the body to absorb nutrients

especially if digestive issues are present.

The formula provides 76 vital ingredients

that work together in synergy optimising

each other’s absorption & benefits. Vital

Greens contains a carefully balanced blend

of nutritionally rich greens, vegetables,

fruits, minerals, vitamins, essential fatty

acids, plant & herbal extracts, superfoods,

powerful antioxidants, probiotics, essential

amino acids, digestive enzymes, fibre plus a

uniquely alkalising pea protein. It provides

superior nutrition to a multivitamin &

anyone will benefit from it. It is designed to

provide all the nutrients the body requires

for good health. It is also ideal for those in

poor health, those recovering from injury

or sickness, children, athletes, poor eaters

& the elderly. It is also suitable for people

with dietary restrictions & is gluten, wheat

& dairy free. Vital Greens will help remove

toxic waste from the body while supporting

Are you Magnesium

deficient?

Minerals are the building blocks of

good health. Some minerals are only

needed in trace amounts where others

like magnesium are need in much larger

amounts & on a regular basis to prevent

deficiency & maintain optimum health. A

large number of us do not obtain sufficient

magnesium from our diet & may notice

some of the common signs of deficiency.

Some of the more common symptoms that

may be caused by insufficient magnesium

are: leg & muscle cramps, twitches, muscle

pain, muscle fatigue & weakness, tremors

of hands, blurred vision, restlessness, poor

sleep, raised &/or unstable blood pressure,

poor circulation, irregular heartbeat,

shortness of breath, swallowing problems,

dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation,

irritability, seizures, poor concentration &

many more.

Although many young people now show

signs of magnesium deficiency symptoms

generally worsen as we age due to our

digestive system being less efficient. Taking

a magnesium supplement of sufficient

strength may be a sensible option to top

up our vital magnesium levels. Not all

magnesium supplements however are

well absorbed by everyone. Luckily a new

marine sourced magnesium has been

found that offers good levels of absorbable

magnesium as well as many trace nutrients

that are low in the diet but essential for

good health.

REAL ESTATE

Sample the city’s best

326 Montreal Street, Central City

Auction: Thursday 08 March 2018 Unless Sold Prior | Listing ID: PI49998

Wow! This location is hard to beat. Nestled in the

heart of a highly popular city precinct known for its

art and iconic attractions, this 516 sqm of bare land

is surrounded by the very best of Christchurch. A

corner location adds to the versatility of the site and a

high-profile address, directly across the road from the

Christchurch Art Gallery, will have developers buzzing

with the possibilities.

Stroll to a huge (and ever-expanding) selection of

restaurants, bars and shops. A six-minute walk will

take you to the famous Arts Centre and leafy Botanic

Gardens. A ten-minute walk will have you at Cashel

Street in the centre of the retail precinct or in everpopular

Victoria Street. Can you believe it’s also zoned

for some of the city’s top schools? Elmwood School,

Heaton, Boys’ High and Girls’ High provide a complete

education, in addition to numerous private schooling

options nearby.

As the city further develops in the coming months

and years, and the benefits of central city living grow

in popularity, this prime location will prove an asset in

your portfolio. This opportunity is absolutely one of a

kind - now is the time to act. Consented plans for two

townhouses available.

Contact Cameron Bailey on 352 6166 or mobile

0275 557 079 of Harcourts Gold Papanui (Licensed

Agent REAA 2008) today and register your interest.

Auction date Thursday 8 Mar 10:00am (Gold

Auction Rooms, 471 Papanui Rd) Unless Sold Prior

The Easter Story: Fact or Fable?

Why was the long-promised Messiah Jesus brutally

executed on a crude Roman Cross? What was the early

apostles’ experience of Jesus post the Crucifixion?

Was Jesus physically raised from the dead? These

two seminal events of the Christian tradition will

be examined in the light of the latest research and

biblical scholarship, especially the Jesus Seminar.

The Easter events, their place in history and their

relevance for today will also be noted.

It will be a six-week course of 2-hour sessions held

on Thursday afternoons, 2pm – 4 pm, commencing

on 8 March 2018. The course will be facilitated by

Charles Manning and Rev Rodney Routledge and be

interactive in format.
