Vandalism,

drug-dealing

in Aranui

prompts

community

trust to

take action

• By Sophie Cornish

A GROUP of about 10-12 youths

have vandalised a part of Aranui,

causing damage to businesses and

homes and driving up insurance

costs.

More than 50 broken windows

at the old Aranui Primary

School, tagging and drug-dealing

are some of the “significant

challenges” in the area which have

led community group, Families

for Life Trust, to take on its own

safety and security measures.

The trust has approached the

city council about acquiring a

site it owns on Breezes Rd, with

the intention of developing it

to minimise the anti-social

behaviour it attracts, said trustee

Kerry Rutherford.

Sergeant Jim Currie of New

Brighton police said “quite a few

files” had come through about

incidents in the Breezes and Pages

Rds corner area.

“There’s has been a group of

youths going around throwing

stones and smashing windows,”

he said.

ASSAULT VICTIM Erica Godfrey will not be giving up on her

bid to improve safety at New Brighton’s Thomson Park.

She is again calling for lighting and cameras at the skate park

on Marine Pde to deter troublemakers (see page 3).

She wants them installed as part of a city council plan to

upgrade the car park. She and her son were victims of bullying

at the park last month.

The upcoming improvements to the car park may see safety

Car park plan may address safety

Assault victim

hopes cameras

part of upgrade

• By Sophie Cornish

SAFETY concerns around New

Brighton’s Thomson Park will

soon be addressed as part of a

car park improvement project.

The concerns were raised

following an assault at the skate

park on a South New Brighton

woman last month.

Erica Godfrey was left badly

bruised after confronting a

youth who threatened her

autistic son. The offender was

referred to Youth Aid.

City council will present

a draft plan of the car park

project to the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board on April 3.

The community board has set

aside about $100,000 to upgrade

the car park, which will include

improving the surface and

sealing it to minimise dust.

Coastal-Burwood

Community Board chairwoman

Kim Money said city council

staff have been working on

the park’s landscaping and car

park plan with community

groups that use the area and

principles staff.

“We thought while we are

doing this we might as well do

it all together, or at least have a

plan for it,” she said.

“I’m really keen to get this

done as soon as possible . . . I’m

looking forward to seeing the

plan,” said Ms Money.

Mrs Godfrey made a

deputation to the community

board last month asking that

safety at the park be improved,

including installing security

cameras.

City council manager regional

parks Kay Holder said staff

will aim to address the safety

concerns through the plan using

the CPED principles.

However, she said it was

too early to confirm whether

cameras would be included in

‘I’m really worried that . . .

it’s a token gesture. If they

can do it (install cameras

and lights) at the Margaret

Mahy park and the New

Brighton whale park,

why can’t they do it at

Thomson Park?’

– Erica Godfrey

the plan.

The plan may involve

removing plants, trees and

shrubbery from the park

boundaries so there is a better

view into the park from the

road.

Mrs Godfrey said although

removing trees and shrubs

would be a small step, there

needs to be lights and cameras

installed to make it safe.

She is concerned the city

council may be “brushing off”

the matter by only removing

shrubbery.

“I’m really worried that that

is what they might be doing,

that it’s a token gesture,” Mrs

Godfrey said.

“If they can do it (install

cameras and lights) at the

Margaret Mahy park and the

New Brighton whale park, why

can’t they do it at Thomson

ESTUARY TREE REPORT

The city council will carry out a

Namaste and

Kumusta. Greetings

to the Linwood

Community.

I am very pleased to

be able to report to

the community that 2018 has begun well for

the school. This page shows the wide range

of positive activity that we would expect in a

busy, thriving secondary school.

Our 2018 school year has begun with an

increased school roll, considerably so. This

has resulted in some timetabling challenges

and prompt action to appoint further staff.

Thank you to the students and staff as they

manoeuvre their way round some crowded

classrooms.

2018 also starts with the first full year of our

being in two Kāhui Ako-Communities of

Learning, Tamai – Linwood-Woolston, and

Aupaki – the Bays, Heathcote and Lyttleton.

I have written about Kāhui Ako previously.

They are schools collaborating to ensure that

the student is at the centre of all activity but

not just in the individual school the student is

in at the time, but as the student progresses

from early childhood centres through their

schooling to tertiary and the workplace.

been doing this for decades, of course, so it

Festival of Nations 2018

Last month, Linwood College was once

again on show - in all its glory. The ‘Festival

of Nations,’ one day event, celebrated the

breadth and richness of cultural heritage

amongst our students. With initial speeches

and a flag parade attended by local MPs,

Poto Williams, Dr Duncan Webb and Ruth

Dyson, the College’s sports' field was

transformed into a vibrant cultural throng of

colour and enthusiasm.

The festival concluded with a Cultural

Evening, a night of spectacular

entertainment, with music and dance

performances by students from around the

world.

is good to have this part of official national

education policy.

As we know, 2018 is our last full year in the

old LHS/LC school buildings. In mid-year

2019, Term 2, Linwood College will shift

off-site for the duration of our re-build to what

will be by then the former Avonside GHS

site. This is a very good thing for us all as we

will not have to live in the middle of a major

building site for what would have been three

years. It takes a year off the building timeline,

from the three years to under two, and this

means a saving of one million dollars. This

saved money does not leave the budget so

we can use as we see fit.

Our community consultation about the new

Linwood College has given us clear direction

and everything that we do is based on this.

We all agree that it is true that buildings

alone do not necessarily improve education

– the relationship with the teacher and the

personalisation of learning are the two key

factors for this – but there is also no doubt

that new, purpose-built buildings and spaces

can contribute hugely to these two factors. It

is Linwood College’s turn.

Finally, I am always keen to meet people, so

if any member of the community wishes to

talk to me about anything, please contact the

office to arrange a time for this to occur. My

door is open.

annual Coast-to-Coast race.

This intensely challenging race started on the

West Coast's Kumara Beach and finished on the

East Coast at New Brighton Beach.

What an amazing accomplishment it was for

them all to get across the finish line after just six

months of tough training!

We would like to thank all who supported our

team including LC students Aaron Skow, Tane Bradshaw and Alisha Ungerboeck as well as

Jess de Bont and Matt Mark who instigated this amazing experience for the Rangers!

As a past participant, Jess de Bont said, “I'm blown away by these teens. They have pushed

are able to survive in the extreme cold.

After huddling like Blue Penguins in the chilling

were then escorted to see some real-life rescued

Blue Penguins in action during feeding-time.

To end our adventure, we were introduced to some

very well-trained Siberian Huskies, during which

time we were told about these special dogs that can

survive in such raw weather.

Personal experience

behind community

walking group idea

• By Sophie Cornish

A NEW Brighton man is

organising a walking group for

people with disabilities which he

hopes will transform lives.

The group is set to meet tonight

for the first time at the Old School

on Seaview Rd.

Organiser Massey

Rangi (left) was

inspired to form

the group after

spending many

years as a “recluse”,

he said, following

his cerebral palsy diagnoses.

Mr Rangi is getting the

initiative off the ground as part

of his field work for a national

diploma in social services at Te

Runanga O Nga Maata Waka

in Aranui. The agency is an

approved community services

provider.

The walking group is for anyone

with accessibility issues, and

Mr Rangi hopes it will get people

out in the community, lift their

self-esteem and confidence.

“If you want to just come for a

walk, or perhaps elderly that fear

going out by themselves, they can

contact us and we can help them.”

“We can relate to each

other and build relationships and

friendships,” he said.

Mr Rangi loved playing sport

in his youth, but his diagnoses in

his 30s affected his mobility.

“I’ve wasted the best part of

my years being a recluse, I’ve

got that life experience. If I can

help someone 10 years, 20 years

younger than myself, then I will

feel like I’ve done something.”

Now 44, Mr Rangi believes

there is interest in the walking

group within the community.

“After talking to a lot of people,

there is a niche for it when really

there shouldn’t have been, it

should have been covered.”

Veterinary practice

A DAY IN THE LIFE

OF MICHELE...

One of my earliest memories

at four, had me dreaming one

day about saving animals

lives and thankfully my best

dream came true. In fact it

was cultivated by my parents

and veterinarian Dave

Marshall (my dad’s friend),

who let me see Practice with

him in Worchester street as

a little girl every holidays. My

parents moved onto some

land when I was young

basically so I could have a

horse and be surrounded by

animals, which I was. I would

never want to do anything

else, but sometimes my

job is tough, mentally and

physically and you think

about your patients 24/7. It’s

just the way it is for me and I

honestly wouldn’t want Kyza

to be any different.

The last couple of

weeks has seen some

real highs and lows for

me. All part of my role

as a vet, but I thought

I’d let you in on a

snippet of my life.

Today I laid to rest

“Kyza”, at his home in

the Cashmere hills. Kyza

had been a frequent

flyer of mine since I first vaccinated him in

August 2006 as a delightful, bouncy, super

cute little puppy. So for 12 years I’ve had a

close relationship with Kyza’s parents and

the man himself. To say he’s not been high

maintenance nor costly would be lying, but

when you meet this magnificent, funny,

gentle Boxer up close face to face, it’s not

hard to see why his family have given him

every opportunity for the “best’ life possible.

Kyza had undergone the scapel many times

– knee surgery, lump removals, castration

later in life, three operations to remove

urethral and bladder stones, grass seed

foreign bodies but what took the quality

from his life in the end was Congestive

Heart Failure, which he’d been battling for

a while. No matter what his visit was for,

he let me do anything I wanted as long as

liver treats and pats were part of the deal.

He knew my voice and would watch me

from the waiting room ready for his name

to be called. Right up until the end he was

incredibly stoic, trusting, clever (he had a

real knack of clamping his jaw as to avoid

more medications) and he still tried so

hard to please the humans he loved. He

was a legend and I know he’ll be greatly

missed, least of all by me. Today was lovely

as it should be. It was a 28 degree warm

summer’s day and Kyza was lying on the

lawn peacefully and close by were the

people he adored. He slipped off to sleep so

effortlessly and easily and believe it or not

he wagged his tail one last time as the drug

was being administered,

as if to say, “THANKS guys,

I’ve had a blast!

He wasn’t scared, he

looked safe and at peace.

As I popped him to sleep,

tears welled in my eyes.

26 years of practising

and sending animals off

into the next life, doesn’t

make me immune to

feeling sad at saying

goodbye to a true friend,

a patient I’ll not see again

nor have the privilege

of helping. My last act of

kindness and compassion

is to end their suffering

and discomfort and to

make those last moments

of life as kind and

respectful as I can for the

animal that has trusted in

my care all of its life.

On a high note, another fabulous

K9 “Charlie” a 7 year old golden

Cocker Spaniel, escaped death

which almost seemed inevitable

a few weeks ago. Charlie came as

a second opinion and was a very

sick dog with a gloomy future.

He had refused to eat for over 2

weeks, had chronic pneumonia,

kidney failure and white blood

cells higher than I’ve ever seen in

a dog in 26 years of practising. Our 10/10+

team of vets and nurses worked tirelessly

and lovingly, often out of hours, on Charlie

and we got to the bottom of his disease,

started the correct treatment plan and the

rest is history.

Collaboration with canine specialists, lots

of internet research and special and loving

owners that wanted to try “everything”,

gave us time to figure out the pieces to this

difficult puzzle.

So as you can see, no two days are the

same and each day brings with it extreme

pride and joy occasionally mixed with some

sadness.

BUT still being a “VET” is the best job EVER!!

Well read pupils compete

THREE SCHOOLS from east

Christchurch competed in the

world’s biggest literary event for

children on Wednesday.

Chisnallwood Intermediate,

Marshland School and

Queenspark School competed

to become the Kids’ Lit Quiz

champion, with Halswell’s

Aidanfield Christian School

winning the title.

The annual international

literature quiz for pupils aged

10-13 encourages children to

read for pleasure.

More than 260 pupils competed

on Wednesday for two

places in the national final. The

winning team will compete in

the national final in Wellington

in June.

There they will compete for a

place in the world final in Auckland

in July.

The quiz was founded in New

Zealand 27 years ago by quizmaster

Wayne Mills, and is now

held in 13 countries, including

Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore,

South Africa, the United

Kingdom and United States.

This year Nigeria and Indonesia

will compete for the first time.

More than 2000 New Zealand

pupils in teams of four will take

part in the event in 16 heats

across the country.

Mr Mills said the pupils train

for “the sport of reading.”

“The kids spend months

preparing for the quiz, just as

athletes train for a sports event.

We don’t have prescribed texts

or reading lists, so competitors

must simply read widely in

the children and young adult

categories,” he said.

“The questions vary every

year and can be sourced from

anything from classic children’s

literature to the latest best-seller.

They have to read everything

that’s been written for kids in

the last 200 years to be across

every question.”

Mr Mills said the pupils

love that the competition isn’t

“dumbed down” and gives them

something to aim for which

values their reading prowess.

“We stay up to date with

technology, too, as kids use

e-readers as well as print books,

and train by using the Kids’ Lit

Quiz app,” Mr Mills said.

organisation run and

ARANUI

NOW OPEN LAUNDROMATs

sELF sERVICE / OPEN 7 DAYs

A new self-service laundromat has opened at 319 Pages Road, Aranui.

The New Zealand owned Liquid Self Service Laundromat

offers the latest smart key payment technology.

Owner Sarah Sutton says using smart keys is simple and

fuss free.

“Simply purchase a reloadable key at Laxmi Foodstore (2

doors down) for $3, load it with whatever value you choose

and clip it on your key ring, ready to use whenever you like.”

Sarah says all services at Liquid Self Service Laundromat

are very affordable - with washing from $4 and dryers

from $4 for 25 minutes which will dry up to three loads of

washing.

“Plus, by doing all your washing away from home you can

lower your monthly electricity bills substantially.”

The eco-friendly washing machines come in 8kg, 18kg and

28kg sizes - with the large washers ideal for bulky, heavy

duty items like feather duvets, mink blankets, sports gear

and curtains.

“The large and extra-large washers and dryers are ideal for

families and mothers to save time as they can do all their

washing and drying for a week in about one hour saving

water and energy.”

There are 8 Liquid Self Service Laundromat sites within the

Christchurch area – Hornby, Woolston, Burwood, Sydenham,

Richmond, Rangiora, Hoon Hay and Aranui.

Sites are open from 5am-11pm daily – “and all you need to

do is top-up your easy-key in normal hours”, says Sarah.

Smart keys can be used at any of the over 50 Liquid Self

Service Laundromats nationwide.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Hip 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 or

both hips.

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. Alternatively, a

back muscle could also be the cause, as

shown in the image.

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

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

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

and wellbeing.

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 hip, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the hip 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.

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

Back hip muscle that causes hip pain

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

How to

keep your

brain

healthy!

Your brain is made up of over 60%

fatty acids and in particular mainly

DHA fatty acids. It has been shown

people with the lowest amount of DHA

have smaller brains and do worse on

tests of brain function. DHA is the

main nutrient required for your brain

to grow and function efficiently and

correctly. It allows the brain to renew

and rejuvenate itself. Studies have shown

when DHA levels increase in the brain

its function also improves leading to a

better memory and cleared thinking.

One study of 430 seniors who were

supplemented with DHA over 24 weeks

showed their memory and cognitive

function to almost double at the end of

the study. This shows how important

DHA is to a healthy brain. Other studies

have shown the brain is able to grow in

size and repair itself at any age when the

right conditions are available.

A new superfood for the brain has been

found. Calamari is a highly potent source

of DHA and is now available in an easy to

swallow capsule. It offers 4X more DHA

than standard fish oil but still offers a

good amount of EPA fatty acids that are

essential to help control inflammation

for joint and cardiovascular health.

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

Whether it be a new build, or

a retrofit, most homes include

at least one heat pump, if not a

whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are

much more convenient than a log

burner as you just need to press a

button. But how do you decide

what is best? Choosing the right

sized heat pump is key to ensuring

optimum comfort levels. Every

situation varies and it is therefore

important to get professional

advice from heat pump experts.

The range varies from wall

mounted high walls, floor mounted systems,

multi systems, ceiling cassettes, right through

to ducted central heating systems allowing

you to have a very discreet way of heating

your whole home to a constant temperature

throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that is

suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it is

important to select

the correct size for

Heating is a major

investment in your home

and it is vital to get the

right advice.

your requirements

that will handle

the job but not

be unnecessarily

overpowered.

Secondly, the

location of your

heat pump is also extremely important. The

cheapest installation is a back to back where

the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind

the indoor unit however this is not necessarily

always the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

PEGASUS POST

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of

systems and price, so it depends on your

application as to which will be most suitable.

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are

all reliable brands backed up by good technical

after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but also

validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to

consider when

choosing a heat pump

are time clocks, ease

of use of the remote

controllers, air

filtration and also wifi

capabilities.

HOME & HEATING

Bathroom ventilation

The extraction of air from the bathroom

should be a priority for all houses and

commercial buildings.

Bathrooms can generate a large quantity

of steam and odours. It is important this

compromised air does not circulate around

the house.

Bathroom odours can be unpleasant, especially

when near living, sleeping or working areas.

The moisture generated by showers and

baths can be damaging to your home and

furnishings and be a major contribution to

condensation. Damp houses are not a healthy

environment for anyone to live in, especially

for children or other vulnerable people.

By extracting air from the bathroom to

outside, warmer air from inside the house will

move in to the bathroom. Whereas opening a

window can draw cold air into the bathroom

and blow the smelly, moisture laden bathroom

air into the house.

Modern houses are built to be very airtight

and require mechanical ventilation such as

extraction fans or heat exchanger systems.

Although older houses can be draughty, the air

often flows in the wrong direction. Therefore,

they also usually require mechanical

ventilation to keep the air quality higher.

The quality of the air we breathe affects our

health and ability to perform. We breathe

in and out approximately 20,000 litres of

air every day. It is therefore very important

to ensure good air quality indoors through

adequate ventilation.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact the

experts. Smooth-Air Products can calculate

the required extraction for your bathrooms,

and look into air exchange for your whole

building. Smooth-Air offers a wide range

of ventilation equipment, from air vents to

ducting for fans, for both the commercial and

domestic markets. They have an extensive

Personalised

treatment

for every patient

At Better Denture in Hornby, the focus is firmly on providing a

customised service for every individual patient, whether they

require new or replacement dentures.

All the dentures are manufactured in-house, which

gives the small team more control over the process,

resulting in a personalised approach for everyone,

owner Chris Castle says.

Himself an experienced Clinical Dental Technician,

Chris explains that the materials used at Better

Denture are of a higher quality than the standard

denture materials, so patients can be assured their

dentures will stay looking good and provide longlasting

service.

“We also help people with the upkeep of their

dentures so they get the best from them,” he says.

The follow-up service is another notable feature of

Better Denture, with patients’ dentures being checked

in the few weeks after being fitted to make sure they

are sitting comfortably, and adjusted if necessary.

“We are here to look after people and provide them

with the best-possible service,” Chris says.

The atmosphere at Better Denture’s bright, spacious

clinic is friendly and welcoming, and patients are free

to bring someone with them for support if they wish.

Anyone needing new or replacement dentures is

invited to contact Better Denture, phone 349 5050,

for a Free Consultation and Denture check to discuss

suitable options. Same-day denture repairs and

relines are also available.

Located at 6 Brynley Street, Hornby, Better Denture

is open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm and Saturday,

10am-12pm. Off-street parking and wheelchair

access is available.

Art Trail inspired

by local stories

LOCAL artmakers present their

works at an exciting Art Trail taking

place over 5 sites in Wakaroa Pigeon

Bay on Easter Weekend.

“e trail was inspired by my

mum’s stories of growing up in

Pigeon Bay,” explained artist and

event orgniser, Keren Oertly. “She

always spoke of her childhood as a

time of formation, of connection and

belonging. I was interested to explore

these ideas of identity in relation to

place through my research and work

towards a Masters in Fine Arts at the

Ilam School of Fine Art in 2017. e

community in the Bay was incredibly

supportive and generous throughout

this process – none of this would be

possible without them.”

Based on stories shared by the Bay

community and utilising materials from the

Bay wherever possible, these site-specific

and audience responsive art works seek to

celebrate the life and stories of the Bay. e

main exhibition takes place at the Pigeon

Bay Hall with additional artworks installed

along the way from the Summit Rd/Pigeon

Bay Rd bus shelter, to Knox Church yard, the

Pigeon Bay Boating Club, and Wakaroa

Point.

In conjunction with the Art Trail there is a

free public programme of workshops
