Vandalism,<br />

drug-dealing<br />

in Aranui<br />

prompts<br />

community<br />

trust to<br />

take action<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

A GROUP of about 10-12 youths<br />

have vandalised a part of Aranui,<br />

causing damage to businesses and<br />

homes and driving up insurance<br />

costs.<br />

More than 50 broken windows<br />

at the old Aranui Primary<br />

School, tagging and drug-dealing<br />

are some of the “significant<br />

challenges” in the area which have<br />

led community group, Families<br />

for Life Trust, to take on its own<br />

safety and security measures.<br />

The trust has approached the<br />

city council about acquiring a<br />

site it owns on Breezes Rd, with<br />

the intention of developing it<br />

to minimise the anti-social<br />

behaviour it attracts, said trustee<br />

Kerry Rutherford.<br />

Sergeant Jim Currie of New<br />

Brighton police said “quite a few<br />

files” had come through about<br />

incidents in the Breezes and Pages<br />

Rds corner area.<br />

“There’s has been a group of<br />

youths going around throwing<br />

stones and smashing windows,”<br />

he said.<br />

ASSAULT VICTIM Erica Godfrey will not be giving up on her<br />

bid to improve safety at New Brighton’s Thomson Park.<br />

She is again calling for lighting and cameras at the skate park<br />

on Marine Pde to deter troublemakers (see page 3).<br />

She wants them installed as part of a city council plan to<br />

upgrade the car park. She and her son were victims of bullying<br />

Your brain is made up of over 60%<br />

DHA fatty acids. It has been shown<br />

people with the lowest amount of DHA<br />

have smaller brains and do worse on<br />

tests of brain function. DHA is the<br />

main nutrient required for your brain<br />

to grow and function efficiently and<br />

correctly. It allows the brain to renew<br />

and rejuvenate itself. Studies have shown<br />

when DHA levels increase in the brain<br />

its function also improves leading to a<br />

better memory and cleared thinking.<br />

One study of 430 seniors who were<br />

supplemented with DHA over 24 weeks<br />

showed their memory and cognitive<br />

function to almost double at the end of<br />

the study. This shows how important<br />

DHA is to a healthy brain. Other studies<br />

have shown the brain is able to grow in<br />

size and repair itself at any age when the<br />

right conditions are available.<br />

A new superfood for the brain has been<br />

found. Calamari is a highly potent source<br />

of DHA and is now available in an easy to<br />

swallow capsule. It offers 4X more DHA<br />

than standard fish oil but still offers a<br />

Car park plan may address safety<br />

Assault victim<br />

hopes cameras<br />

part of upgrade<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

SAFETY concerns around New<br />

Brighton’s Thomson Park will<br />

soon be addressed as part of a<br />

car park improvement project.<br />

The concerns were raised<br />

following an assault at the skate<br />

park on a South New Brighton<br />

woman last month.<br />

Erica Godfrey was left badly<br />

bruised after confronting a<br />

youth who threatened her<br />

autistic son. The offender was<br />

referred to Youth Aid.<br />

City council will present<br />

a draft plan of the car park<br />

project to the Coastal-Burwood<br />

Community Board on April 3.<br />

The community board has set<br />

aside about $100,000 to upgrade<br />

the car park, which will include<br />

improving the surface and<br />

sealing it to minimise dust.<br />

Coastal-Burwood<br />

Community Board chairwoman<br />

Kim Money said city council<br />

staff have been working on<br />

the park’s landscaping and car<br />

park plan with community<br />

groups that use the area and<br />

“We thought while we are<br />

doing this we might as well do<br />

it all together, or at least have a<br />

plan for it,” she said.<br />

“I’m really keen to get this<br />

done as soon as possible . . . I’m<br />

looking forward to seeing the<br />

plan,” said Ms Money.<br />

Mrs Godfrey made a<br />

deputation to the community<br />

board last month asking that<br />

safety at the park be improved,<br />

including installing security<br />

cameras.<br />

City council manager regional<br />

parks Kay Holder said staff<br />

will aim to address the safety<br />

concerns through the plan using<br />

the CPED principles.<br />

However, she said it was<br />

too early to confirm whether<br />

cameras would be included in<br />

‘I’m really worried that . . .<br />

it’s a token gesture. If they<br />

can do it (install cameras<br />

and lights) at the Margaret<br />

Mahy park and the New<br />

Brighton whale park,<br />

why can’t they do it at<br />

Thomson Park?’<br />

– Erica Godfrey<br />

the plan.<br />

The plan may involve<br />

removing plants, trees and<br />

shrubbery from the park<br />

boundaries so there is a better<br />

view into the park from the<br />

road.<br />

Mrs Godfrey said although<br />

removing trees and shrubs<br />

would be a small step, there<br />

needs to be lights and cameras<br />

installed to make it safe.<br />

She is concerned the city<br />

council may be “brushing off”<br />

the matter by only removing<br />

shrubbery.<br />

“I’m really worried that that<br />

is what they might be doing,<br />

that it’s a token gesture,” Mrs<br />

Godfrey said.<br />

“If they can do it (install<br />

cameras and lights) at the<br />

Margaret Mahy park and the<br />

New Brighton whale park, why<br />

can’t they do it at Thomson<br />

Park?”<br />

I am very pleased to<br />

be able to report to<br />

the community that <strong>20</strong>18 has begun well for<br />

the school. This page shows the wide range<br />

of positive activity that we would expect in a<br />

busy, thriving secondary school.<br />

Our <strong>20</strong>18 school year has begun with an<br />

increased school roll, considerably so. This<br />

has resulted in some timetabling challenges<br />

and prompt action to appoint further staff.<br />

Thank you to the students and staff as they<br />

manoeuvre their way round some crowded<br />

classrooms.<br />

<strong>20</strong>18 also starts with the first full year of our<br />

being in two Kāhui Ako-Communities of<br />

Learning, Tamai – Linwood-Woolston, and<br />

Aupaki – the Bays, Heathcote and Lyttleton.<br />

I have written about Kāhui Ako previously.<br />

They are schools collaborating to ensure that<br />

the student is at the centre of all activity but<br />

not just in the individual school the student is<br />

in at the time, but as the student progresses<br />

Festival of Nations <strong>20</strong>18<br />

Last month, Linwood College was once<br />

again on show - in all its glory. The ‘Festival<br />

of Nations,’ one day event, celebrated the<br />

breadth and richness of cultural heritage<br />

amongst our students. With initial speeches<br />

and a flag parade attended by local MPs,<br />

Poto Williams, Dr Duncan Webb and Ruth<br />

Dyson, the College’s sports' field was<br />

transformed into a vibrant cultural throng of<br />

colour and enthusiasm.<br />

The festival concluded with a Cultural<br />

Evening, a night of spectacular<br />

entertainment, with music and dance<br />

performances by students from around the<br />

world.<br />

is good to have this part of official national<br />

education policy.<br />

As we know, <strong>20</strong>18 is our last full year in the<br />

old LHS/LC school buildings. In mid-year<br />

<strong>20</strong>19, Term 2, Linwood College will shift<br />

off-site for the duration of our re-build to what<br />

will be by then the former Avonside GHS<br />

site. This is a very good thing for us all as we<br />

will not have to live in the middle of a major<br />

building site for what would have been three<br />

years. It takes a year off the building timeline,<br />

from the three years to under two, and this<br />

means a saving of one million dollars. This<br />

saved money does not leave the budget so<br />

we can use as we see fit.<br />

Our community consultation about the new<br />

Linwood College has given us clear direction<br />

and everything that we do is based on this.<br />

We all agree that it is true that buildings<br />

alone do not necessarily improve education<br />

– the relationship with the teacher and the<br />

personalisation of learning are the two key<br />

factors for this – but there is also no doubt<br />

that new, purpose-built buildings and spaces<br />

can contribute hugely to these two factors. It<br />

is Linwood College’s turn.<br />

Finally, I am always keen to meet people, so<br />

if any member of the community wishes to<br />

talk to me about anything, please contact the<br />

office to arrange a time for this to occur. My<br />

door is open.<br />

What an amazing accomplishment it was for<br />

them all to get across the finish line after just six<br />

We would like to thank all who supported our<br />

Personal experience<br />

behind community<br />

walking group idea<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

A NEW Brighton man is<br />

organising a walking group for<br />

people with disabilities which he<br />

hopes will transform lives.<br />

The group is set to meet tonight<br />

for the first time at the Old School<br />

on Seaview Rd.<br />

Organiser Massey<br />

Rangi (left) was<br />

inspired to form<br />

the group after<br />

spending many<br />

years as a “recluse”,<br />

he said, following<br />

his cerebral palsy diagnoses.<br />

Mr Rangi is getting the<br />

initiative off the ground as part<br />

of his field work for a national<br />

diploma in social services at Te<br />

Runanga O Nga Maata Waka<br />

in Aranui. The agency is an<br />

approved community services<br />

provider.<br />

The walking group is for anyone<br />

with accessibility issues, and<br />

Mr Rangi hopes it will get people<br />

out in the community, lift their<br />

self-esteem and confidence.<br />

“If you want to just come for a<br />

walk, or perhaps elderly that fear<br />

going out by themselves, they can<br />

contact us and we can help them.”<br />

“We can relate to each<br />

other and build relationships and<br />

friendships,” he said.<br />

Mr Rangi loved playing sport<br />

in his youth, but his diagnoses in<br />

his 30s affected his mobility.<br />

“I’ve wasted the best part of<br />

my years being a recluse, I’ve<br />

got that life experience. If I can<br />

help someone 10 years, <strong>20</strong> years<br />

younger than myself, then I will<br />

feel like I’ve done something.”<br />

Now 44, Mr Rangi believes<br />

there is interest in the walking<br />

group within the community.<br />

“After talking to a lot of people,<br />

there is a niche for it when really<br />

there shouldn’t have been, it<br />

should have been covered.”<br />

a mixture of sweet and dry red<br />

and white wines, with feijoa,<br />

mint, elderberry, plum and<br />

boysenberry flavours.<br />

Twenty-two winemakers<br />

attended the competition,<br />

which was first held in 1974 and<br />

includes representatives from<br />

clubs across the South Island.<br />

The rules required each club<br />

to present four wines and three<br />

beers to be tested by those<br />

attending the competition. The<br />

wines included a dry and a sweet<br />

white wine, and a dry and a<br />

sweet red wine.<br />

There is no restriction on the<br />

ingredients, which can range<br />

from fruit to flowers, vegetables<br />

and herbs. The beer classes<br />

include lager, ale and stout.<br />

The <strong>Pegasus</strong> society was<br />

formed in the 1970s, originally<br />

running meetings out of the<br />

New Brighton Power Boat<br />

clubrooms on Union St and then<br />

Bid to deter vandals, drug-dealing<br />

•From page 1<br />

The trust, along with<br />

PTL Property Trust, want<br />

to seal the site next to St<br />

Ambrose Anglican Church<br />

to create a car park,<br />

install lighting and<br />

ensure it can be<br />

locked at night.<br />

“It’s a hang-out<br />

site, we would like<br />

to have it secured<br />

and sealed and<br />

used as a public car<br />

park,” said PTL Property<br />

Trust commercial<br />

property manager Corey<br />

Watkinson.<br />

He said there is a group<br />

of offenders some as<br />

Jim<br />

Currie<br />

young as eight-years-old.<br />

“More than 50 windows<br />

have been smashed at<br />

Aranui Primary School,<br />

vandalism to the Mobil<br />

petrol station,<br />

broken windows<br />

and vandalism to<br />

the supermarket and<br />

retail food shops, kids<br />

climbing on roofs and<br />

throwing stones are<br />

some of the problems.”<br />

“It’s the same group<br />

over and over again, but<br />

most of the guys are too<br />

young to prosecute and<br />

that’s part of the challenge,”<br />

he said. One food vendor<br />

Watkinson said.<br />

Sergeant Currie said<br />

some offenders who<br />

caused damage to a<br />

residential property on<br />

Breezes Rd have now been<br />

trespassed. But he said<br />

there was not a lot police<br />

could do for offenders<br />

under the age of 13.<br />

“We refer them through<br />

to Youth Aid who will do<br />

follow-up with the parents<br />

Veterinary practice<br />

A DAY IN THE LIFE<br />

OF MICHELE...<br />

One of my earliest memories<br />

at four, had me dreaming one<br />

day about saving animals<br />

lives and thankfully my best<br />

dream came true. In fact it<br />

was cultivated by my parents<br />

and veterinarian Dave<br />

Marshall (my dad’s friend),<br />

who let me see Practice with<br />

him in Worchester street as<br />

a little girl every holidays. My<br />

parents moved onto some<br />

land when I was young<br />

basically so I could have a<br />

horse and be surrounded by<br />

animals, which I was. I would<br />

never want to do anything<br />

else, but sometimes my<br />

job is tough, mentally and<br />

physically and you think<br />

about your patients 24/7. It’s<br />

just the way it is for me and I<br />

honestly wouldn’t want Kyza<br />

to be any different.<br />

The last couple of<br />

weeks has seen some<br />

real highs and lows for<br />

me. All part of my role<br />

as a vet, but I thought<br />

I’d let you in on a<br />

snippet of my life.<br />

Today I laid to rest<br />

“Kyza”, at his home in<br />

the Cashmere hills. Kyza<br />

had been a frequent<br />

flyer of mine since I first vaccinated him in<br />

August <strong>20</strong>06 as a delightful, bouncy, super<br />

cute little puppy. So for 12 years I’ve had a<br />

close relationship with Kyza’s parents and<br />

the man himself. To say he’s not been high<br />

maintenance nor costly would be lying, but<br />

when you meet this magnificent, funny,<br />

gentle Boxer up close face to face, it’s not<br />

hard to see why his family have given him<br />

every opportunity for the “best’ life possible.<br />

Kyza had undergone the scapel many times<br />

– knee surgery, lump removals, castration<br />

later in life, three operations to remove<br />

urethral and bladder stones, grass seed<br />

foreign bodies but what took the quality<br />

from his life in the end was Congestive<br />

Heart Failure, which he’d been battling for<br />

a while. No matter what his visit was for,<br />

he let me do anything I wanted as long as<br />

liver treats and pats were part of the deal.<br />

He knew my voice and would watch me<br />

from the waiting room ready for his name<br />

to be called. Right up until the end he was<br />

incredibly stoic, trusting, clever (he had a<br />

real knack of clamping his jaw as to avoid<br />

more medications) and he still tried so<br />

hard to please the humans he loved. He<br />

was a legend and I know he’ll be greatly<br />

missed, least of all by me. Today was lovely<br />

as it should be. It was a 28 degree warm<br />

summer’s day and Kyza was lying on the<br />

lawn peacefully and close by were the<br />

people he adored. He slipped off to sleep so<br />

effortlessly and easily and believe it or not<br />

he wagged his tail one last time as the drug<br />

was being administered,<br />

as if to say, “THANKS guys,<br />

I’ve had a blast!<br />

He wasn’t scared, he<br />

looked safe and at peace.<br />

As I popped him to sleep,<br />

tears welled in my eyes.<br />

26 years of practising<br />

and sending animals off<br />

into the next life, doesn’t<br />

make me immune to<br />

feeling sad at saying<br />

goodbye to a true friend,<br />

a patient I’ll not see again<br />

nor have the privilege<br />

of helping. My last act of<br />

kindness and compassion<br />

is to end their suffering<br />

and discomfort and to<br />

make those last moments<br />

of life as kind and<br />

respectful as I can for the<br />

animal that has trusted in<br />

my care all of its life.<br />

On a high note, another fabulous<br />

K9 “Charlie” a 7 year old golden<br />

Cocker Spaniel, escaped death<br />

which almost seemed inevitable<br />

a few weeks ago. Charlie came as<br />

a second opinion and was a very<br />

sick dog with a gloomy future.<br />

He had refused to eat for over 2<br />

weeks, had chronic pneumonia,<br />

kidney failure and white blood<br />

cells higher than I’ve ever seen in<br />

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

team of vets and nurses worked tirelessly<br />

and lovingly, often out of hours, on Charlie<br />

and we got to the bottom of his disease,<br />

started the correct treatment plan and the<br />

rest is history.<br />

Collaboration with canine specialists, lots<br />

of internet research and special and loving<br />

owners that wanted to try “everything”,<br />

gave us time to figure out the pieces to this<br />

difficult puzzle.<br />

So as you can see, no two days are the<br />

same and each day brings with it extreme<br />

pride and joy occasionally mixed with some<br />

sadness.<br />

BUT still being a “VET” is the best job EVER!!<br />

Well read pupils compete<br />

THREE SCHOOLS from east<br />

Christchurch competed in the<br />

world’s biggest literary event for<br />

children on Wednesday.<br />

Chisnallwood Intermediate,<br />

Marshland School and<br />

Queenspark School competed<br />

to become the Kids’ Lit Quiz<br />

champion, with Halswell’s<br />

Aidanfield Christian School<br />

winning the title.<br />

The annual international<br />

literature quiz for pupils aged<br />

10-13 encourages children to<br />

read for pleasure.<br />

More than 260 pupils competed<br />

on Wednesday for two<br />

places in the national final. The<br />

winning team will compete in<br />

the national final in Wellington<br />

in June.<br />

There they will compete for a<br />

place in the world final in Auckland<br />

in July.<br />

The quiz was founded in New<br />

Zealand 27 years ago by quizmaster<br />

Wayne Mills, and is now<br />

held in 13 countries, including<br />

Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore,<br />

South Africa, the United<br />

Kingdom and United States.<br />

This year Nigeria and Indonesia<br />

will compete for the first time.<br />

More than <strong>20</strong>00 New Zealand<br />

pupils in teams of four will take<br />

part in the event in 16 heats<br />

across the country.<br />

Mr Mills said the pupils train<br />

for “the sport of reading.”<br />

“The kids spend months<br />

preparing for the quiz, just as<br />

athletes train for a sports event.<br />

We don’t have prescribed texts<br />

TEAMS: Schools from across Canterbury competed in the<br />

Kids’ Lit Quiz on Wednesday, the world’s biggest literary<br />

event for children.<br />

or reading lists, so competitors<br />

must simply read widely in<br />

the children and young adult<br />

categories,” he said.<br />

“The questions vary every<br />

year and can be sourced from<br />

anything from classic children’s<br />

literature to the latest best-seller.<br />

They have to read everything<br />

that’s been written for kids in<br />

the last <strong>20</strong>0 years to be across<br />

every question.”<br />

Mr Mills said the pupils<br />

love that the competition isn’t<br />

“dumbed down” and gives them<br />

something to aim for which<br />

values their reading prowess.<br />

“We stay up to date with<br />

technology, too, as kids use<br />

e-readers as well as print books,<br />

and train by using the Kids’ Lit<br />

Quiz app,” Mr Mills said.<br />

ARANUI<br />

NOW OPEN LAUNDROMATs<br />

sELF sERVICE / OPEN 7 DAYs<br />

A new self-service laundromat has opened at 319 Pages Road, Aranui.<br />

The New Zealand owned Liquid Self Service Laundromat<br />

offers the latest smart key payment technology.<br />

Owner Sarah Sutton says using smart keys is simple and<br />

fuss free.<br />

“Simply purchase a reloadable key at Laxmi Foodstore (2<br />

doors down) for $3, load it with whatever value you choose<br />

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

Sarah says all services at Liquid Self Service Laundromat<br />

are very affordable - with washing from $4 and dryers<br />

from $4 for 25 minutes which will dry up to three loads of<br />

washing.<br />

“Plus, by doing all your washing away from home you can<br />

lower your monthly electricity bills substantially.”<br />

The eco-friendly washing machines come in 8kg, 18kg and<br />

28kg sizes - with the large washers ideal for bulky, heavy<br />

duty items like feather duvets, mink blankets, sports gear<br />

and curtains.<br />

“The large and extra-large washers and dryers are ideal for<br />

families and mothers to save time as they can do all their<br />

washing and drying for a week in about one hour saving<br />

water and energy.”<br />

There are 8 Liquid Self Service Laundromat sites within the<br />

Christchurch area – Hornby, Woolston, Burwood, Sydenham,<br />

Richmond, Rangiora, Hoon Hay and Aranui.<br />

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

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

Smart keys can be used at any of the over 50 Liquid Self<br />

Service Laundromats nationwide.<br />

HEALTH & AWARENESS<br />

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or<br />

could it be mainly my muscles?<br />

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham<br />

sees clients with a range of symptoms but<br />

many of their middle-aged and senior<br />

clients visit complaining of pain in one or<br />

both hips.<br />

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests<br />

that a major part of the pain could be due<br />

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.<br />

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason<br />

for the pain may be the muscles around<br />

the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a<br />

back muscle could also be the cause, as<br />

shown in the image.<br />

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year<br />

old client with severe arthritis who walked<br />

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in<br />

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight<br />

through my right leg due to pain in my hip<br />

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she<br />

was walking with her stick but without the<br />

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was<br />

one of the factors that made her muscles<br />

spasm but the other was that older people<br />

move less and the flexed position the hip<br />

is in when we sit is particularly bad for<br />

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that<br />

although the client was 89 and could have<br />

been “given up on” or told to live with the<br />

pain, she made a difference to her health<br />

Hip muscle that causes hip pain<br />

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)<br />

and wellbeing.<br />

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques<br />

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation<br />

techniques) are used to release the muscles.<br />

The client also gets a home exercise<br />

program designed to mobilize and stretch<br />

the hip, strengthen the important core<br />

muscles and increase general strength and<br />

balance. They teach a movement sequence<br />

that stretches the hip in all directions<br />

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their<br />

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.<br />

In many cases having the muscles<br />

released and being taught how to maintain<br />

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.<br />

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,<br />

some maintenance therapy may be<br />

necessary, but that is often more affordable<br />

and, for older patients, better tolerated than<br />

surgery. In very few treatments the client<br />

Back hip muscle that causes hip pain<br />

will know if it is going to work for them or<br />

not, without financial commitment.<br />

FOCUS ON HEALTH<br />

How to<br />

keep your<br />

brain<br />

healthy!<br />

Your brain is made up of over 60%<br />

fatty acids and in particular mainly<br />

DHA fatty acids. It has been shown<br />

people with the lowest amount of DHA<br />

have smaller brains and do worse on<br />

tests of brain function. DHA is the<br />

main nutrient required for your brain<br />

to grow and function efficiently and<br />

correctly. It allows the brain to renew<br />

and rejuvenate itself. Studies have shown<br />

when DHA levels increase in the brain<br />

its function also improves leading to a<br />

better memory and cleared thinking.<br />

One study of 430 seniors who were<br />

supplemented with DHA over 24 weeks<br />

showed their memory and cognitive<br />

function to almost double at the end of<br />

the study. This shows how important<br />

DHA is to a healthy brain. Other studies<br />

have shown the brain is able to grow in<br />

size and repair itself at any age when the<br />

right conditions are available.<br />

A new superfood for the brain has been<br />

found. Calamari is a highly potent source<br />

of DHA and is now available in an easy to<br />

swallow capsule. It offers 4X more DHA<br />

than standard fish oil but still offers a<br />

good amount of EPA fatty acids that are<br />

essential to help control inflammation<br />

for joint and cardiovascular health.<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Choosing the<br />

right heat pump<br />

for your home<br />

Whether it be a new build, or<br />

a retrofit, most homes include<br />

at least one heat pump, if not a<br />

whole heating solution. They can<br />

provide cheap, clean heat and are<br />

much more convenient than a log<br />

burner as you just need to press a<br />

button. But how do you decide<br />

what is best? Choosing the right<br />

sized heat pump is key to ensuring<br />

optimum comfort levels. Every<br />

situation varies and it is therefore<br />

important to get professional<br />

advice from heat pump experts.<br />

The range varies from wall<br />

mounted high walls, floor mounted systems,<br />

multi systems, ceiling cassettes, right through<br />

to ducted central heating systems allowing<br />

you to have a very discreet way of heating<br />

your whole home to a constant temperature<br />

throughout.<br />

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that is<br />

suitable for the size of the space you wish<br />

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to<br />

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area<br />

taken into consideration but also, insulation,<br />

building orientation, windows and ceiling<br />

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps<br />

available with different heating outputs so it is<br />

important to select<br />

the correct size for<br />

Heating is a major<br />

investment in your home<br />

and it is vital to get the<br />

right advice.<br />

your requirements<br />

that will handle<br />

the job but not<br />

be unnecessarily<br />

overpowered.<br />

Secondly, the<br />

location of your<br />

heat pump is also extremely important. The<br />

cheapest installation is a back to back where<br />

the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind<br />

the indoor unit however this is not necessarily<br />

always the best option. It is vital that the indoor<br />

unit is positioned in a place that will not be<br />

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is<br />

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people<br />

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly<br />

in their outdoor entertaining area or right<br />

outside their bedroom window.<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands<br />

have come and gone over the years but there<br />

are a number of manufacturers who provide<br />

reputable and reliable products. All brands<br />

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of<br />

systems and price, so it depends on your<br />

application as to which will be most suitable.<br />

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,<br />

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are<br />

all reliable brands backed up by good technical<br />

after sales service.<br />

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an<br />

accredited installer. This will not only ensure<br />

correct installation of your heat pump, but also<br />

validate the manufacturers warranty.<br />

Other things to<br />

consider when<br />

choosing a heat pump<br />

are time clocks, ease<br />

of use of the remote<br />

controllers, air<br />

filtration and also wifi<br />

capabilities.<br />

Heating is a major<br />

investment in your home and it is vital to get<br />

the right advice.<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Bathroom ventilation<br />

The extraction of air from the bathroom<br />

should be a priority for all houses and<br />

commercial buildings.<br />

Bathrooms can generate a large quantity<br />

of steam and odours. It is important this<br />

compromised air does not circulate around<br />

the house.<br />

Bathroom odours can be unpleasant, especially<br />

when near living, sleeping or working areas.<br />

The moisture generated by showers and<br />

baths can be damaging to your home and<br />

furnishings and be a major contribution to<br />

condensation. Damp houses are not a healthy<br />

environment for anyone to live in, especially<br />

for children or other vulnerable people.<br />

By extracting air from the bathroom to<br />

outside, warmer air from inside the house will<br />

move in to the bathroom. Whereas opening a<br />

window can draw cold air into the bathroom<br />

and blow the smelly, moisture laden bathroom<br />

ventilation equipment to bring<br />

Domestic<br />

Commercial<br />

Industrial<br />

air into the house.<br />

Modern houses are built to be very airtight<br />

and require mechanical ventilation such as<br />

extraction fans or heat exchanger systems.<br />

Although older houses can be draughty, the air<br />

often flows in the wrong direction. Therefore,<br />

they also usually require mechanical<br />

ventilation to keep the air quality higher.<br />

The quality of the air we breathe affects our<br />

health and ability to perform. We breathe<br />

in and out approximately <strong>20</strong>,000 litres of<br />

air every day. It is therefore very important<br />

to ensure good air quality indoors through<br />

adequate ventilation.<br />

To ensure the quality of your air, contact the<br />

experts. Smooth-Air Products can calculate<br />

the required extraction for your bathrooms,<br />

and look into air exchange for your whole<br />

building. Smooth-Air offers a wide range<br />

of ventilation equipment, from air vents to<br />

ducting for fans, for both the commercial and<br />

domestic markets. They have an extensive<br />

range of fans and ventilation components<br />

Personalised<br />

treatment<br />

for every patient<br />

At Better Denture in Hornby, the focus is firmly on providing a<br />

customised service for every individual patient, whether they<br />

require new or replacement dentures.<br />

All the dentures are manufactured in-house, which<br />

gives the small team more control over the process,<br />

resulting in a personalised approach for everyone,<br />

owner Chris Castle says.<br />

Himself an experienced Clinical Dental Technician,<br />

Chris explains that the materials used at Better<br />

Denture are of a higher quality than the standard<br />

denture materials, so patients can be assured their<br />

dentures will stay looking good and provide longlasting<br />

service.<br />

“We also help people with the upkeep of their<br />

dentures so they get the best from them,” he says.<br />

The follow-up service is another notable feature of<br />

Better Denture, with patients’ dentures being checked<br />

in the few weeks after being fitted to make sure they<br />

are sitting comfortably, and adjusted if necessary.<br />

“We are here to look after people and provide them<br />

with the best-possible service,” Chris says.<br />

The atmosphere at Better Denture’s bright, spacious<br />

clinic is friendly and welcoming, and patients are free<br />

to bring someone with them for support if they wish.<br />

Anyone needing new or replacement dentures is<br />

invited to contact Better Denture, phone 349 5050,<br />

for a Free Consultation and Denture check to discuss<br />

suitable options. Same-day denture repairs and<br />

relines are also available.<br />

is open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm and Saturday,<br />

Art Trail inspired<br />

by local stories<br />

LOCAL artmakers present their<br />

works at an exciting Art Trail taking<br />

place over 5 sites in Wakaroa Pigeon<br />

Bay on Easter Weekend.<br />

“e trail was inspired by my<br />

mum’s stories of growing up in<br />

Pigeon Bay,” explained artist and<br />

event orgniser, Keren Oertly. “She<br />

always spoke of her childhood as a<br />

time of formation, of connection and<br />

belonging. I was interested to explore<br />

these ideas of identity in relation to<br />

place through my research and work<br />

towards a Masters in Fine Arts at the<br />

Ilam School of Fine Art in <strong>20</strong>17. e<br />

community in the Bay was incredibly<br />

supportive and generous throughout<br />

this process – none of this would be<br />

possible without them.”<br />

Based on stories shared by the Bay<br />

community and utilising materials from the<br />

Bay wherever possible, these site-specific<br />

and audience responsive art works seek to<br />

celebrate the life and stories of the Bay. e<br />

main exhibition takes place at the Pigeon<br />

Bay Hall with additional artworks installed<br />

along the way from the Summit Rd/Pigeon<br />

Bay Rd bus shelter, to Knox Church yard, the<br />

Pigeon Bay Boating Club, and Wakaroa<br />

Point.<br />

In conjunction with the Art Trail there is a<br />

free public programme of workshops<br />
