Family

asked to

detain

man who

crashed

into their

fence

• By Emily O’Connell

A HALSWELL family was told

by police to detain a driver who

crashed into the fence at their

property until they could free up

resources.

Julia and Mat Taylor were

watching television with their

newborn baby fast asleep when

they heard a loud noise outside.

A neighbour who went to see

what happened walked the driver

from his vehicle back to the

Taylors house.

When she called 111, Mrs

Taylor was informed there would

be a delay because police had a

number of high priority call-outs,

such as family violence incidents,

suicide attempts, a mental health

incident, and reports of fighting.

Mrs Taylor said the 111 operator

asked them to keep the man

at their property for as long as

possible until police could get

there.

A police spokeswoman said

they gave this advice as police

were very busy.

Stormwater storage facilities boosted

Keith

WORK WILL soon begin on

boosting stormwater storage in

Hendersons Basin to reduce the

flood risk along the Heathcote

River.

The land drainage facility in

Halswell – in farmland bounded

by Sparks Rd,

Hendersons Rd,

Cashmere Rd and

Sutherlands Rd –

will also improve

water quality by

treating stormwater

runoff in the

area.

The additional

Davison

storage is part of the new $40

million Eastman/Sutherlands/

Hoon Hay stormwater facilities.

It is one of four major storage

projects the city council is

building to store floodwater

during a storm, and then

gradually release the water

after levels have dropped

downstream.

Under the Land Drainage Recovery

Programme, these basins

will help protect flood-prone

homes in Heathcote.

The total additional storage

added will be able to hold

800,000 cu m of water.

The four basins should reduce

the risk of above-floor flooding

for more than 100 Heathcote

properties in a one-in-50-year

storm.

“Storm water runoff contains

pollutants – such as heavy metal

and sediment – that can harm

the city’s aquatic life,” city council

land drainage manager Keith

Davison said.

“However, the runoff can be

targeted with treatment basins

and wetlands, cutting the impact

of urban and rural development

on water quality.”

The new facility will also

treat the increased sediment

coming down from the Port

Hills into Hoon Hay Valley

Stream. There is less vegetation

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!!

Summit Rd night-time

restrictions likely to fail

A BID to restrict vehicles

on Summit Rd at night to

prevent boy racing and

anti-social behaviour is

likely to fail.

The city council will

consider a staff recommendation

against banning

vehicles from the Port

Hills area between 10pm

and 5am at its meeting on

Thursday.

After reports of vandalism,

fire, loitering and

littering, the city council

carried out public consultation

last year on a

proposal to restrict vehicle

access to parts of the Port

Hills road in a bid to

protect the isolated and

ecologically sensitive area.

The restriction was proposed

for a stretch of Summit

Rd from Rapaki Rd

to Gebbies Pass Rd, and

Worsleys Rd from Summit

Rd to Worsleys Track,

between 10pm and 5am on

Thursday, Friday, Saturday

and Sunday and on public

holidays. Local residents

would be exempt.

However, a hearings

panel report, which will

go before city councillors

at Thursday’s meeting,

recommends the city

council not go ahead with

the proposal.

The panel considered

all submissions, including

those presented by police

and the Summit Road Protection

Authority, along

with a city council staff report

which recommended

the restrictions should not

be approved.

The panel agreed with

city council staff, saying

the proposal would be difficult

to enforce.

The report said it could

end up shifting anti-social

behaviour to other areas

where it might present a

greater risk to the public.

It would also restrict the

freedom of law-abiding,

Summit Rd.”

Instead the panel,

which was chaired by city

councillor David East,

has called for the Port

Hills Management Plan

to be fast-tracked, saying

it could help address

concerns at Summit Rd

and other roads in the

area.

The report also suggests

the city council consider

both lowering the speed

limit on Summit Rd and

introducing a mechanism

– such as number plate

recognition technology –

which would potentially

identify drivers for crime

prevention purposes.

It notes that police are

willing to assist with measures

to curb anti-social

behaviour.

The panel report also

requests a joint briefing on

the issue be held as soon

as possible for all local

community boards and

investigation into lowering

the speed limit in the area.

Licence fails the test of time

• By Julia Evans

WHEN SHE was pulled over

on Gloucester St for speeding,

Esther Dodds presented

Constable Kurt Davison with

her driver’s licence.

What the 71-year-old St Martins

resident didn’t realise was

the licence, a black motor vehicle

book, hadn’t been valid for the

better part of four decades.

“I’ve never been more confused

in my life. I didn’t know

you had to have a photo on your

licence nowadays,” she said.

After driving Mrs Dodds

home, Constable Davison approached

his colleague, Senior

Constable Robyn Pewhairangi

with a “challenge.”

She met Mrs Dodds weekly

to help her study the road

rules as part of a five-week

programme that helps people

get their licence – though it is

largely targeted at younger drivers.

“Esther studied hard beyond

what was asked of her,” Senior

Constable Pewhairangi said.

She said “empowering” people

by helping them get their licence

makes the road safer, reduces

death and serious injury.

“I wish I’d been caught sooner.

It was the best thing that’s happened

to me,” Mrs Dodds said.

When she passed the test, she

was met with a “huge hug” from

her tutor.

“I didn’t think they’d let us go

for our licence at our age. My

husband always said I was too

old and that stuck in my head,”

she said.

“But it’s helped me get my

confidence back . . . it’s given me

a sense of freedom.”

Now Mrs Dodds has set

herself a goal to visit her son and

grandchildren in Otira.

“When I get my full licence

I’m going to pack up the cat and

the dog and drive to the West

Coast,” she said.

She is also inspiring other

“If I can help other older people

The Tattooist of Auschwitz

by Heather Morris

The incredible story of the Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist

and the woman he loved.

Lale Sokolov is well-dressed, a charmer, a ladies man. He is also a Jew.

On the first transport from Slovakia to Auschwitz in 1942, Lale immediately

stands out to his fellow prisoners. In the camp, he is looked up to, looked

out for, and put to work in the privileged position of Tetovierer “the tattooist”

to mark his fellow prisoners, forever. One of them is a young woman, Gita,

who steals his heart at first glance. His life given new purpose, Lale does

his best through the struggle and suffering to use his position for good.

This story, full of beauty and hope, is based on years of interviews author

Heather Morris conducted with real-life Holocaust survivor and Auschwitz-

Birkenau tattooist Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov. It is heart-wrenching, illuminating,

and unforgettable.

The Shepherd’s Hut

by Tim Winton

Jaxie dreads going home. His mum’s dead. The old man bashes him without

mercy, and he wishes he was an orphan. But no one’s ever told Jaxie

Clackton to be careful what he wishes for. In one terrible moment his life is

stripped to little more than what he can carry and how he can keep himself

alive.

There’s just one person left in the world who understands him and what he

still dares to hope for. But to reach her he’ll have to cross the vast saltlands

on a trek that only a dreamer or a fugitive would attempt.

The Shepherd’s Hut is a searing look at what it takes to keep

love and hope alive in a parched and brutal world.

Aging for Beginners

by doug Wilson

The world we know has changed dramatically and what the future might look

like is harder and harder to assess. For those entering the twilight years, this

uncertainty is ever more challenging to navigate. Dr Wilson’s book follows a

set of main principles and navigates a myriad of challenges that may be

difficult for the aging population to face.

The books establishes the following guidelines:

• Assess how you are – your medical;

• Assess your finances;

• Adapt to that – change this, change that, do this, do that – improve your lot.

Go ahead and do that because it’s your life;

• Accept what you have and what cards you have been dealt.

Health, Dr Wilson says, is the factor that needs major consideration. In his

book he discusses the importance of accessing the best possible information

about both physical and mental health.

day, can Lyla find a way to cope with her new reality?

Cahill said the front line is

Minister of Police Stuart

Nash said he is committed to

supporting police with what

they need “to recruit and train

and deploy 1800 new police over

three years.”

The incident didn’t come as a

surprise to the Taylors.

Mrs Taylor said they had been

“expecting” something to happen

ever since moving to Ensign St in

late 2016.

She said cars do burn-outs and

drive at speed on the street “most

nights.”

Mrs Taylor believes speed

Fire rages, homes at risk

Board games

for MP with

church group

THE OPAWA Community

Church Kafe group were

given the opportunity to

challenge their MP to a game

of Chinese checkers and snakes

and ladders.

Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson

visited the group on

Wednesday.

The group formed after

recognising a growing issue

of isolation and loneliness for

seniors living independently in

the area.

Pastor Andrew Doubleday

and a group of the volunteers

have opened the church every

Wednesday afternoon to

accommodate the group.

Volunteer Karen Whitla

said: “Great conversation,

music, games and guest

speakers, over cake and coffee,

is the focus around the Kafe.

Mobility is a problem for many

elderly in the area. Currently

Mr Doubleday is in the process

of organising a mini-bus to do

pick-ups on the southern side of

the city.”

She encourages anyone in the

community who would like to

join the group to phone her on

980 4429.

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 Woolston Post Shop

& Dairy (next door) 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.

Aidanfield wins literature quiz

AIDANFIELD Christian

School took the top spot in the

Canterbury heats of the Kids’

Lit Quiz championships on

Wednesday.

The competition is an annual

international literature quiz for

pupils aged 10-13-years-old.

It aims to encourage children

to read for pleasure, widening

the breadth of their reading and

knowledge.

Aidanfield Christian School

english teacher and quiz coach

Karen Strijbis said the winning

team of Cole, Josie, Jack and

Jasper had been training for the

competition for six weeks.

“They are overwhelmed at the

result, especially as we beat over

60 other Christchurch schools

who competed exceptionally

well,” she said.

Mrs Strijbis said the pupils’

prize of $500 will cover flights to

the national final in Wellington

on June 10.

Villa Maria College, Kirkwood

Intermediate, Cobham

Intermediate, Avonhead School,

Westburn School, Roydvale

School and Yaldhurst Model

School also competed in the

heats.

Christchurch South Intermediate

School’s team finished

second and will be joining the

Aidanfield Christian School in

the national final.

There they will compete for

a place in the world final in

Auckland in July, where the

New Zealand team will compete

against teams from nine other

countries.

St Margaret’s College finished

third in the Canterbury heats.

The quiz, which is a Kiwi

initiative, was founded in New

Zealand 27 years ago by quizmaster

Wayne Mills, and is now

held in 13 counties.

Mr Mills said pupils train for

months for “the sport of reading”.

“The kids spend months

preparing for the quiz, just as

athletes train for a sports event.

ACHIEVEMENT:

Aidanfield

Christian School

pupils Cole,

Josie, Jack and

Jasper with

quizmaster

Wayne Mills.

TEAMS: More

than 60 schools

from across

Canterbury

competed in

the Kids’ Lit

Quiz at Cobham

Intermediate

School on

Wednesday.

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 Kids’ Lit

Quiz is a not-for-profit organisation

which is run and managed

exclusively by volunteers.

HALSWELL’S newest primary

school – Knights Stream School

– celebrated the start of its

construction with a sod turning

ceremony.

The school, on the corner of

Richmond and Killarney Aves,

will open in February.

Initially, it will cater for up to

450 pupils from years 0-8. Stage

two of the school will cater for

up to 700 pupils.

Principal Mike Molloy said the

school has also been gifted the

name Mingimingi Hautoa.

The school’s board of trustees

is made up of chairman Warren

Read, deputy chairwoman Sarah

Lowe, Amanda Wall, Giarne

Harrison and Rodney King.

Mr Molloy said the culture the

board has “already established

is phenomenal.” Alongside the

board of trustees, Mr Molloy is

planning a community event

to be held close to the proposed

school site in early April.

PATHWAYS

TO SUCCESS

Principal’s Report

NCEA Excellence @ Level 1 Art

Kia ora koutou.

Talofa. Kia Orana.

Malo e lelei. Bula.

Fakaalofa atu.

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.

Effective schools and communities have

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.

Mathematics Success

We are very proud of Jeremy

Kyle who received an

‘Excellence’ grade for his NCEA

Level 1 external portfolio. His

body of work had been part of

a year long project around the

theme, ‘My connection with the

world around me.’ Students were

able to interpret this theme into

their own context.

We are proud to congratulate the following students who excelled in their work and achieved

the 10 Numeracy credits required for NCEA as Year 10 students in 2017. They are:

Cory Aberhart, J C Aguilar, Ethan Alderley, April Anderson-Hill, Jessa Arcayera, Kane

Arps, Analea Cavanagh, Jecus Culanag, Mario Cvetkoski, Danae Ganela, Desiree Garner,

Serena Gerrard, Orlando Saul Goxhaj, Jeikob Hart-Floyd, Paigan-Lilly Hall, Dallas Keating,

Kaylah Hoskins, Nabiha Irsad, Jade Jackson, Tau Jackson, Andrei Laxamana, Alana Le

Cren, Orion Lynch, Patrick Maravilla, Ethan Moscrop-Giblin, Robert Paul, Leah Pearce,

Patricia Pangilinan, Luka Russell, Tanisha Reddy, Jenna Roberts, Savanna Seinafo, Bethany

Shanks, Josh Stiles, Dylan Taylor, Den Vergara and Jessica Wheble.

Coast to Coast Champions

Last month six of our Linwood College students:

Emmaline Stott, Finn Pierce, Julian Lui, Mapu

Uasi, Kyle Amer and Moahengi Ngauamo

competed as the 'Coast-to-Coast Rangers' in the

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

themselves more than many people will in a lifetime and have shown such respect for each

other and for us coaches. They totally inspire me."

Star Activities Day

In early February all Year 9 classes attended an exciting

activity day at The Groynes.

Students participated in team building activities and

climbed high ropes testing their courage to take on new

challenges. It was great to see the students working

together as they got to know one another.

Chilling

This term Level 2 Science students visited the

Antarctic Centre to experience survival in an

extreme environment and to explore how organisms

are able to survive in the extreme cold.

After huddling like Blue Penguins in the chilling

‘Cold Room’ (with a wind-chill factor of -18°C), we

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.

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.

Physical Sense Gym & Physio is located

at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham.

There is a bus stop in front of the door

and there is ample parking. To enquire

about specialised exercise classes or

physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577

Contemporary designs to style your home

At Bolt of Cloth, they make it fun and easy

to make your house your home. A New

Zealand family-owned business, Bolt of

Cloth was started in Christchurch in 2009,

with the owners wanting to bring something

different to the city. The initial idea was

to make unique,

contemporary

designer fabrics

available direct to

the public.

Two years later,

they were nearly

taken out by the

Christchurch

earthquakes of

2011, and the loss of their

premises meant they had to

start again almost from scratch.

However, those difficult times

helped to shape the colourful

and inventive business they

have today.

They stock a

huge range of

contemporary home

furnishings, quilting/

dressmaking fabrics,

giftware and canvases.

You can even design

your own cushions,

curtains, lampshades

or squabs. A friendly team is always on hand

to give you

as much or as little interior design advice as

you need.

Using their custom-made curtains, blinds,

venetians and shutters you can revamp your

home to suit your individual taste, with the

interior design team offering free at-home

and in-store consultations to help with all

your window treatment needs.

Bolt of Cloth employs a team of local

craftspeople, handmaking many of

their products here in New Zealand.

Supporting local artists and designers,

they run a textile design competition

every year. Any New Zealand resident

can enter and

the winning

designs are

then used to

create a limited

edition cushion

collection.

They bring

in unique

homewares

from around

the world, including Finnish design brand

Marimekko, which is known for its iconic

prints and colour.

When you visit a Bolt of Cloth store you will

be blown away by the bright and colourful

atmosphere, and delighted by the beautiful

range of products.

Gymnast, 9, for NZ team

• By Andrew King

HALSWELL’S Flynn

Gunther only started

competing in trampoline

12 months ago and now

he is the youngest member

selected in a New Zealand

team heading to compete

in Australia in May.

The 9-year-old first took

up the sport 18 months ago

his father, Tim, said but he

has really taken a liking to

it and is quite good at it.

“He had to set a

qualifying score at a

competition in Rotorua a

few weeks ago, or here in

Christchurch on March

10-11. His score in Rotorua

was not good enough but

he did the business here in

Christchurch,” he said.

Then there was a

nervous wait for the

team selection for the

Australian Gymnastics

Championships which was

confirmed on Friday night.

“He was exhausted and

thrilled at the same time,”

Mr Gunther said.

He has gymnastics flowing

through his blood with his

mother, Nadia, a former

New Zealand representative

in artistic gymnastics when

she was 16.

Flynn will be ticking off

a few firsts this year, after

taking his first domestic

plane flight to compete in

Rotorua, he will now take

his first ever international

flight with the New

Zealand team.

The Seven Oaks Primary

School student trains

with Olympia Gymnastic

also has 10-year-old twins

Hair cutting specialist

with a family focus

As with any professional skill, experience

counts when it comes to hair cutting, and

that’s where Louise Holdern of Elite Hair

Cuts fits the bill perfectly.

Louise owns and operates this familyoriented

business in Barrington Street, and

with 33 years in the industry in Christchurch,

she has established a strong reputation for

quality and service.

“I have whole families coming to

me for their hair cuts,” Louise

says. “It starts with the

mother, and she will say

that now she’s found a

good hairdresser, she

doesn’t want me to

go, so she sends her

husband, and

then the children

come too.”

As a

grandmother,

Louise is

especially fond

of toddlers and young

children, and enjoys it

when they are brought

to the salon.

“I love spending some time with them and

settling them down,” she says.

Louise also believes it’s beneficial for

young children to watch their parents or

caregiver having a hair cut, so they can see

it’s not a scary process and therefore won’t be

anxious when it’s their turn.

The other aspect of Elite Hair Cuts services

is hair colouring. For this they use

the top-of-the-range Luminart

Professional Colour Cream;

however, clients are also

welcome to bring in their

own colour product,

which Louise will

apply at a cost of $20.

Having colour

applied is not the

most glamorous

procedure, so for

clients who would

like privacy for

that, Elite has a

separate room

with a blind on the

window, where they

can have their colour applied then relax with

a tea or coffee and a magazine in a completely

private space.

Elite Hair Cuts has been closed for a few

days, but will re-open this Wednesday, March

28. Also, the Thursday late night closing time

has changed to 6pm for the winter months.

To book an appointment for a cut or colour,

phone 022 689 0528, or walk in for a hair

cut any time. Opening hours are Monday to

Friday 9am-5pm, with late night Thursday

till 6pm, Saturday 9.30am-12.30pm. Closed

Sunday.

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

customised service for every individual patient, whether they

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

range of fans and ventilation components

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
