Jones ready<br />

to stand<br />

down over<br />

community<br />

centre<br />

budget<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

THE Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board could lose its chairwoman<br />

if the budget for a Shirley<br />

community centre is not included<br />

in the Long Term Plan.<br />

Nor’West <strong>News</strong> understands in<br />

an elected member’s meeting at<br />

the end of last year, chairwoman<br />

Ali Jones said she would resign if<br />

a replacement facility for the east<br />

Innes Ward was not included in<br />

the city council’s <strong>20</strong>18-28 LTP.<br />

When asked if she would stand<br />

by this after the draft LTP was<br />

released, Ms Jones said she would.<br />

“I’m a woman of my word. I<br />

don’t want to resign, I love my<br />

job, I love what I do. But this is<br />

how passionately I feel about the<br />

community.”<br />

In the draft LTP, the rebuild<br />

for the centre at 10 Shirley Rd has<br />

been proposed to be delayed for<br />

10 years.<br />

“After 10 more years, it will be<br />

<strong>20</strong> years since the earthquakes<br />

and this hard hit community<br />

hasn’t had a facility. That’s<br />

totally unacceptable . . . we’ve<br />

been lobbying to get it brought<br />

forward.”<br />

According to researchers grape seeds<br />

may hold the potential to treat and prevent<br />

many devastating disorders. The seeds<br />

have been found to contain many powerful<br />

antioxidant that have been shown to<br />

support the natural healing process and<br />

even slow the aging process.<br />

Grape Seed Extract (GSE) has been shown<br />

to reduce inflammation, pain, increase<br />

cell energy, protect protein structures and<br />

increase collagen production. The powerful<br />

antioxidants can tone and strengthen<br />

the blood vessels, improve blood flow,<br />

making it valuable for circulatory disorders<br />

of all kinds, including varicose veins,<br />

haemorrhoids, hardening of the arteries<br />

and impaired blood flow to the brain. It<br />

is excellent for most skin conditions with<br />

many noticing the skin becomes smoother.<br />

Supermarket expansion completed<br />

<strong>20</strong> new<br />

jobs created<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

A “REFURBISHED, rebranded<br />

and extended” Edgeware Fresh<br />

Choice has opened a number of<br />

job opportunities for the closeknit<br />

community.<br />

Owner Stephen Anderson<br />

said with the new-look store<br />

including its expanded produce<br />

and butchery, opening of a cafe<br />

and new fully serviced deli with<br />

bread, salads, slices and sandwiches<br />

all made on-site, there<br />

have been at least <strong>20</strong> new staff<br />

employed.<br />

“There’s cafe staff, there’s<br />

cooks and now with the service<br />

deli, we’ve had to employ more<br />

people there. Most of them<br />

come from the local area.”<br />

Mr Anderson, his family and<br />

staff have been working on planning<br />

and executing the refurbishment<br />

for more than a year.<br />

There are still developments<br />

in the pipeline including making<br />

its own smallgoods, which<br />

could see more jobs open up, he<br />

said.<br />

“The whole thing is an evolution<br />

. . . there’s always improvements<br />

to be made. I always say<br />

if you’re standing still, you’re<br />

probably moving backwards.”<br />

Mr Anderson, a Northwood<br />

local, has owned the store for<br />

the last nine years. He’s always<br />

been a part of the Edgeware and<br />

St Albans Community.<br />

“I started out renting here<br />

when I was younger . . . I’ve<br />

always been part of this neighbourhood.”<br />

He saw the original building,<br />

the former St Albans cinema,<br />

being pulled down following the<br />

February 22, <strong>20</strong>11, earthquake.<br />

“Then we had all the roadworks<br />

on top of that, which<br />

affected the business for quite<br />

a while. It’s good to extend the<br />

supermarket and start bringing<br />

the area back to life.”<br />

But for Mr Anderson this<br />

refresher is just the start of<br />

an overall rejuvenation of the<br />

Edgeware and St Albans area.<br />

The city council and Papanui-<br />

Innes Community Board are<br />

working with the Edgeware<br />

Business Association, which<br />

Fresh Choice is a part of, to<br />

develop an area master plan.<br />

“We need to develop this<br />

area because it is unique within<br />

Christchurch. There aren’t many<br />

of these villages left,” he said.<br />

Village was one of the few places<br />

in the city where you could go<br />

and get everything you need.<br />

“That gives it a real strong<br />

community feel,” he said. There<br />

are customers who shop there<br />

weekly who Mr Anderson and<br />

staff are on first name basis with.<br />

“We have regulars who have<br />

told us they used to come here<br />

when it was a movie theatre and<br />

they still shop here.”<br />

This year the supermarket is<br />

celebrating its 50th anniversary.<br />

Mr Anderson said celebrations<br />

were set to begin in May,<br />

with a number of “fantastic<br />

prizes” to be won.<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 />

Readers of the<br />

Nor’West <strong>News</strong> write<br />

about opposition<br />

to Enivronment<br />

Canterbury’s proposal<br />

to cut six bus routes<br />

from around the city,<br />

including two in the<br />

north-west<br />

Sergio Toader – I’m<br />

resident of Styx Mill/<br />

Northwood area. I’m<br />

writing to you in order to<br />

express my concerns regarding<br />

a possible cancellation<br />

of the 107 bus route,<br />

from the Northwood Supa<br />

Centa to Northland Shopping<br />

Centre.<br />

This will have a huge<br />

impact on my family,<br />

as we use the bus on a<br />

regular basis. Moreover,<br />

for my daughter, year 9 at<br />

Burnside High School, bus<br />

107 is the only transport<br />

available in the area from<br />

and to school and home.<br />

I’m sure there are some<br />

business reasons for<br />

cancelling the bus but we<br />

must have an alternative.<br />

Anywhere in the civilised<br />

world, in <strong>20</strong>18, public<br />

transport is considered a<br />

vital public service.<br />

I hope the transport<br />

company will understand<br />

the situation and it will reconsider<br />

the cancellation.<br />

Also, I would like to thank<br />

you for your time and effort<br />

in making our voices<br />

voicing my real concern<br />

about the proposal to axe<br />

received about 350<br />

submissions on the plan.<br />

The public can make<br />

a submission on the<br />

ECan website https://<br />

www.ecan.govt.nz/yourregion/plans-strategiesand-bylaws/long-termplans/<br />

proposing to axe six bus<br />

routes.<br />

I have lived in Highsted<br />

Rd for 35 years. My<br />

partner and I purchased<br />

a house there and lived<br />

with our family. As I do<br />

not drive I have always<br />

been reliant on the public<br />

transport.<br />

At that particular time I<br />

had a short walk to catch<br />

a bus in Veitches Rd to<br />

get into the city and home<br />

again for work. Due to personal<br />

reasons I found myself<br />

alone with my children<br />

and we relied completely<br />

on the public transport<br />

service to get around.<br />

In this time, the bus<br />

service was re-routed and<br />

a bus stop was available<br />

directly across the road<br />

from our house. I also had<br />

the choice of being able<br />

to catch two buses into<br />

the city either by way of<br />

Cranford St or by Papanui<br />

Rd. Over the years the<br />

bus route has changed but<br />

the bus stop for 108 still<br />

remains directly across the<br />

road from me.<br />

Then the earthquakes<br />

and the 107 and 108 routes<br />

were changed to a shuttle<br />

running back and forth to<br />

Northlands. That was still<br />

okay for me as I patronise<br />

the bus at least six or more<br />

times a week. I also go to<br />

Northlands and catch the<br />

connecting Orbiter, Blue<br />

It comes following the<br />

announcement that it<br />

would also be changing<br />

the route of the Orbiter<br />

use Cranford St then<br />

Innes Rd, skipping out<br />

the QE II Drive and<br />

Philpotts Rd section<br />

altogether.<br />

Northern Corridor<br />

work will restrict right<br />

hand turning in and out<br />

of Philpotts Rd.<br />

ECan plans to<br />

implement the changes<br />

later this year, though<br />

a date has not been<br />

confirmed.<br />

Line and the 125 bus.<br />

Yes, I have noticed a<br />

drop-off in passengers<br />

on the bus in this area<br />

particularly around the<br />

times 11am to 1pm but<br />

there are still people using<br />

the public transport early<br />

in the morning to get to<br />

work and also a lot of high<br />

school students are on the<br />

bus from 2.30pm onwards.<br />

Only just last week I<br />

counted 15 people on the<br />

108 leaving Northlands<br />

at 2.35pm. Eight of them<br />

were high school students<br />

and seven were adults. The<br />

next day there were 14 on<br />

the same bus route leaving<br />

at 3.05pm. Six of these<br />

passengers were adults the<br />

balance were high school<br />

students. I have noticed<br />

there are still a number of<br />

people catching the bus at<br />

the weekend.<br />

I think it is totally<br />

ludicrous that ECan is<br />

proposing to axe these services.<br />

It will affect a huge<br />

area without any form of<br />

public transport at all. The<br />

area will be in the inner<br />

circle from Northlands<br />

to Northwood and right<br />

through basically to Harewood<br />

Rd. People living<br />

near the Main North Rd<br />

and Harewood Rd should<br />

not be so badly affected as<br />

they can walk to the bus<br />

stops there.<br />

Surely ECan can come<br />

up with some alternative<br />

form of public transport in<br />

this area.<br />

Perhaps combining<br />

route 108 and 107 or alternatively<br />

reducing the 108<br />

and 107 at off peak periods<br />

to every hour.<br />

Or better still they could<br />

look at extending some of<br />

the numerous buses that<br />

go along the Main North<br />

Rd.


NOR’WEST NEWS Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi<br />

Tuesday <strong>March</strong> <strong>20</strong> <strong>20</strong>18 5<br />

I am sure the 125 bus or the 28<br />

bus could be extended to cover<br />

from Northwood, Willowbank<br />

and some of the inner circle<br />

from the Main North Rd to<br />

Northlands.<br />

Has ECan looked into all the<br />

building that is going on out this<br />

way?<br />

Also the new Summerset<br />

Village that is being built at the<br />

moment. Yes, they will be retired<br />

adults catching the bus but the<br />

bus fare is subsidised for adults<br />

holding a Gold Card and, yes,<br />

I am a Gold Card user now but<br />

I certainly pay my way on the<br />

other routes when Gold Cards<br />

are not subsidised.<br />

If they do axe the 108 route<br />

I will have to walk from my<br />

place at the Claridges Rd end<br />

of Highsted Rd to Bishopdale<br />

Village Mall on Harewood Rd<br />

and that is at least a 30min walk<br />

for me.<br />

I suffer from arthritis, even<br />

getting on and off the small<br />

shuttles sometimes is a challenge,<br />

but I do it because I have to. To<br />

me it is my way of getting out and<br />

about.<br />

Sometimes, I have caught three<br />

buses to where I have been going<br />

but I do it because I have to.<br />

I am extremely unhappy that<br />

this may happen. I certainly<br />

hope that ECan will look at other<br />

options instead of axing these<br />

routes or even extending bus 125<br />

or bus 28 to cover for the 107 and<br />

108 if they axe them.<br />

LOCAL SERVICE: The 107 and 108 buses, which both go to<br />

Northlands Shopping Centre, could be axed in Environment<br />

Canterbury’s Long Term Plan.<br />

Sabine Antoniu – I am<br />

writing to you about the recent<br />

proposal by ECan to cut two bus<br />

routes in our area.<br />

We live in Styx Mill/<br />

Northwood and our daughter<br />

takes bus 107 from here to<br />

Northlands Shopping Centre<br />

every day to get to school. She<br />

is a student at Burnside High<br />

School and there are no other<br />

transport alternatives for her in<br />

our neighbourhood.<br />

Without this bus route, we will<br />

need to investigate some other bus<br />

alternatives which will definitely<br />

involve us driving her early<br />

morning to the closest bus stop.<br />

Rubina Rehman Mistry –<br />

This is with regards to the bus<br />

107 or 108 from Northwood<br />

which is due stopping in the<br />

month of June-July this year.<br />

I have been living in<br />

Northwood for the past eight<br />

years and my children (girl and<br />

boy) have been using the 107 to<br />

and from school.<br />

My daughter is in her last year<br />

of school at Papanui High School<br />

and my son has just enrolled at<br />

Ara, his first year. In saying this<br />

my daughter will go to Ara next<br />

year as well.<br />

Both kids travel by the same<br />

bus every day and especially my<br />

son has to change to another bus<br />

(Blue Line) from the Northlands<br />

to Ara, which is pretty hectic<br />

anyway, as they catch two<br />

buses to go to, and two to come<br />

home, plus the walk from the<br />

exchange to Ara. If the bus 107 is<br />

withdrawn they will have to walk<br />

all the way to the other end of<br />

Main North Rd to catch a bus. It<br />

is going to be terrible for the kids<br />

in this area if the bus ceases to<br />

operate, extremely inconvenient.<br />

ECan should understand that<br />

there are a number of children<br />

who live here and they at the least<br />

can operate the mini bus 107<br />

instead of the big massive buses<br />

which they find uneconomical.<br />

Elizabeth Hutton – Thank<br />

you for the article in Nor’West<br />

<strong>News</strong> re: the proposed bus<br />

cuts. I am not so much affected<br />

personally as I am not totally<br />

dependent upon travelling on<br />

the 107 bus route. However, the<br />

bus route cuts will really affect a<br />

number of elderly people whom<br />

I know personally, who depend<br />

on the bus as their means of<br />

transport.<br />

Among those affected are my<br />

elderly blind neighbour who is<br />

totally dependent on the 107 bus<br />

to get around. I understand that<br />

he was going in to lay a complaint<br />

as he so much relies on the bus.<br />

In addition, I was recently<br />

travelling on the 107 and an<br />

elderly passenger who had heard<br />

about the proposed bus cuts was<br />

very disturbed with the news.<br />

The bus was the only thing he<br />

could catch to get places.<br />

to stand down<br />

over budget<br />

•From page 1<br />

Ms Jones said it did not matter<br />

what shape that facility took,<br />

it was up to the community –<br />

the city council just needed to<br />

include some budget.<br />

Ms Jones said most of the<br />

budget for the Papanui and<br />

Innes wards went into major<br />

council projects like the Northern<br />

Corridor, cycleways and<br />

land drainage.<br />

have one before the earthquakes.<br />

A NEW $2.5 million Fendalton<br />

water tank has hit an 18-month<br />

delay.<br />

Changes to the design following<br />

community feedback have<br />

pushed out completion of the<br />

Jeffreys Reserve suction tank,<br />

which will now be completed in<br />

December <strong>20</strong>19 instead of this<br />

June, city council manager land<br />

“This is because of the change<br />

of scope. The Fendalton-<br />

Board’s approval is also<br />

required for the use of land,” he<br />

said.<br />

The plans were changed by<br />

the city council after neighbours<br />

of the reserve expressed concern<br />

with the concept designs.<br />

“Key concerns and suggestions<br />

from the Have Your Say<br />

engagement carried out in September<br />

and October were the<br />

height of the tank and the affect<br />

on neighbours, security issues,<br />

visual impacts, use of existing<br />

site, consideration for other<br />

locations and lowering of tank<br />

height,” Mr Davison said.<br />

REPLACEMENT: A new water<br />

tank in Jeffreys Reserve will<br />

see water in the area return<br />

to pre-quake volumes.<br />

back out for community consultation<br />

in the coming weeks.<br />

The former suction tank was<br />

be replaced to get local water<br />

But instead of replacing it<br />

Mr Davison said the city<br />

council is “future proofing” the<br />

pump station by increasing the<br />

size to 500 cu m so it will last<br />

The redesign remains within<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 />

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 />

and impaired blood flow to the brain. It<br />

is excellent for most skin conditions with<br />

many noticing the skin becomes smoother.<br />

Infectious diseases rife<br />

in children between wars<br />

Papanui Heritage Group chairman Murray Williams writes about<br />

health problems that afflicted Papanui Primary School 90 years ago<br />

IN THE period between<br />

the wars (1919-39) primary<br />

schools in New Zealand<br />

faced many challenges,<br />

although the most serious<br />

was probably the on-going<br />

problem of infectious<br />

diseases.<br />

The Papanui Primary<br />

School committee records<br />

of this period give much<br />

interesting detail of the<br />

way in which this school<br />

was affected.<br />

Diphtheria was a<br />

particular problem in the<br />

19<strong>20</strong>s.<br />

This disease started<br />

with a sore throat and was<br />

transmitted by coughing<br />

and sneezing and could<br />

lead to fatal complications.<br />

In February 1925, 27 per<br />

cent of pupils at Papanui<br />

were absent as a result of<br />

this disease and in May<br />

1926, the school was<br />

closed for a week as the<br />

epidemic flared up again.<br />

Another potential killer<br />

disease of this period was<br />

scarlet fever which started<br />

with a strep throat and<br />

could lead to a severe rash<br />

and persistent high fever.<br />

Younger children were<br />

particularly susceptible to<br />

this complaint that could<br />

be spread by poor personal<br />

hygiene habits.<br />

In November 1928,<br />

pupils under 10 were<br />

excluded for the rest of the<br />

school year.<br />

Measles epidemics were<br />

rife in the interwar period.<br />

For example, in 1934 the<br />

problem was considered<br />

so bad that the school was<br />

closed for brief periods.<br />

In 1938, the school<br />

picnic was abandoned for<br />

the same reason.<br />

Perhaps the most feared<br />

disease was infantile<br />

DISEASE: A doctor adjust the calipers of a young<br />

polio patient. ​<br />

paralysis (also known as<br />

polio).<br />

In 1937, school did not<br />

start until the beginning<br />

of <strong>March</strong> as education<br />

authorities reacted to<br />

the perceived danger.<br />

Polio could lead to severe<br />

muscle weakness, the loss<br />

of mobility and extreme<br />

cases could be fatal.<br />

In the 19<strong>20</strong>s the<br />

persistent absences of<br />

afflicted students (and<br />

those kept at home by<br />

parents worried that<br />

their children might<br />

catch these diseases)<br />

had another practical<br />

consequence for Papanui<br />

as the effective roll<br />

reduction could lead to a<br />

regrading of the school<br />

and the loss of staffing.<br />

The headmaster warned<br />

the school committee of<br />

this possibility in August<br />

1928 and a year later the<br />

Education Board advised<br />

that the school was indeed<br />

over-staffed.<br />

The unfortunate Miss<br />

Glass had to resign and the<br />

school committee could<br />

only note their sorrow<br />

that she had been forced<br />

to leave.<br />

One benefit of<br />

World War 2 was the<br />

development of antibiotics<br />

and these “miracle” drugs<br />

proved effective against<br />

the throat infections that<br />

led to diphtheria and<br />

scarlet fever.<br />

With the exception<br />

of scarlet fever all of<br />

the diseases referred to<br />

above are now part of the<br />

National Programme of<br />

Immunisation; children<br />

are vaccinated during the<br />

early childhood years to<br />

ensure that epidemics that<br />

endangered the health of<br />

their great grandparents<br />

are no longer a threat.<br />

HOME & HEATING<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 />

NOR’WEST NEWS<br />

Choosing the<br />

right heat pump<br />

for your home<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 />

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 />

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,<br />

installation and servicing of all major brands<br />

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers<br />

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as<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 />

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 />

HEALTH & BEAUTY<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 />

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 />

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 />
