Land Information New

Zealand leased the biggest

piece of land it had ever leased

to a community group last

year.

But the garden was so successful

the lease was adjusted in six

months to .8ha.

Co-founder Cathy Allden

said she thinks the group is

very lucky to have the calibre of

volunteers it has.

“Because we have been on this

journey post-earthquake together

we are a really tight group

and I think that is something

powerful and you can’t recreate

the right people, the right time

and the right circumstance,” she

said.

The group has been through

its ups and downs with thieves

stealing more than $550 of garden

tools from its storage shed

earlier this year.

SLOW PROGRESS to recover

New Brighton’s commercial

centre has left businesses

lacking confidence the city

council will follow through on

its plans.

It has been more than three

years since the city council approved

the New Brighton Centre

Master Plan.

It planned to extend Oram Ave

through to the main thoroughfare

of Hawke St, creating a new

north-south shopping and entertainment

precinct, sheltered from

the easterly wind.

Development Christchurch Ltd

has been tasked as the lead agency

for the regeneration.

Businesses have been left “disheartened”

and are questioning if

the city council will carry through

on its plans.

Coupland’s Bakeries New

Brighton store manager Cherie

Douglas said from what she has

seen since the earthquakes she

is not confident the plan will be

implemented.

“People are just disheartened

. . . they don’t want to come this

way. The roads are absolutely rubbish,”

she said.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

from the reporter’s desk

THE BLEAK outlook businesses have over New Brighton’s

future means action to revive the area needs to be taken now

more than ever.

The fact is some businesses, such as Crema Cafe, are only staying

in the area in the hope that the city council and Development

Christchurch Ltd will do something to improve it.

The New Brighton Centre Master Plan, approved in 2015, gave

businesses vision and hope.

But now, three years down the line, businesses are in need of

more assurance the city council’s plans will get under way soon

so they can continue to invest in the area.

New Brighton has great potential and the city council’s plans

have the power to transform it into a thriving hub.

Let’s hope something happens sooner rather than later.

Stanmore Rd petition gains momentum

Resident calls

for 30km/h

speed limit

• By Sophie Cornish and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

A PETITION to address safety

concerns at a “dangerous”

pedestrian crossing on Stanmore

Rd is gaining traction.

More than 500 signatures have

been gathered by Richmond

resident Gillian

Sheard in a bid

to slow traffic

down and make

the crossing more

visible to drivers.

She is calling

Deon

Swiggs

for the speed on

Stanmore Rd to

be reduced from

50km/h to 30km/h.

Ms Sheard is also pushing

for the pedestrian crossing to

either be raised or have traffic

lights placed at the Stanmore Rd/

Avalon St corner.

“I am scared like anything

there is going to be a near death

of major accident,” she said.

Ms Sheard said there are a lot

of elderly and disabled people in

the area and she wants everyone

ADVOCATE: Richmond resident Gillian Sheard has started a

petition to address safety concerns at a pedestrian crossing

to be safe. The pedestrian

crossing has been a concern for

more than two years and

Ms Sheard first raised her

concerns to the city council in

2016.

She believes the problem is

drivers are too concerned about

getting through the intersection

of North Avon Rd and Stanmore

Rd and are not looking for pedestrians.

About 15,000 vehicles

use the road daily.

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said staff had considered options

to reduce the safety risk and

the recommendation is to not

upgrade the crossing.

This was due to its relatively

low-use, no pedestrian-related

crashes, and to ensure safety

improvement funds are allocated

wisely.

He said there is no justification

to reduce Stanmore Rd to

30km/h or plans to upgrade the

crossing in the future.

The owner of Stanmore Rd’s

The Sideline Sports Bar, Nikki

Bradley, said she has been there

for five years and has seen a lot of

people nearly hit on the crossing.

“It is a very dangerous crossing

. . . if you walked out onto it

expecting them to stop you are

playing with your life as far as I

am concerned,” she said.

Miss Bradley said she would

like to see a similar design to the

pedestrian crossing on Williams

St in Kaiapoi, where the footpath

is built out onto the road to make

pedestrians more visible.

She is “shocked” nothing has

been done about it.

Blue Tiki Hair owner Juanita

Scandrett said the crossing is just

the “tip of the iceberg” and the

whole area is “downtrodden”.

City councillor Deon Swiggs

said some simple things can

be done to make it more noticeable.

Community space wanted

Dallington

Residents’

Association

chairwoman

Bebe Frayle

writes about

the suburb’s

need to

for a new

community hub

The people of Dallington have

been deeply affected by the earthquakes.

Two-thirds of the area has been

depopulated in the development of

residential red zone, and traditional

community meeting places that

were important for community

connectedness were lost.

This has created fragmentation

and social isolation in our community

– we do not have a place to

meet, to gather, to talk about our

issues.

We have watched with interest as

other areas have had beautiful new

community spaces built.

We do not begrudge them, but

many Dallington residents feel that

they have been left out of the postearthquake

community regeneration.

Looking at the Long Term Plan,

it does not seem that this trend is

going to change.

There is no capital expenditure allocated

to the Burwood Ward in the

LTP for community initiatives.

We felt that we have waited

patiently for our turn, but that our

turn may never come.

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board has been

provided funding for a feasibility

study to consider locations and uses

of a community facility, but there

is little point in completing this if

there is no funding available for us

to built our hub.

We recognise that it is not possible

for every suburb in the east to get

new community facilities.

So, we have been working collaboratively

with the residents associations

in Burwood and Avondale to

think of ways to get a community

hub for our residents.

Our community is prepared to

think creatively to get the community

space we need, but this will only

get us so far.

We don’t have the resources to

raise our own community centre -

we need the city council’s help with

this.

We are ready to move on, and we

are looking forward – soon there

will be a green spine winding its way

through our community, and great

opportunities will come with this.

Old Aranui Primary may rise again

• By Sophie Cornish and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

A CHURCH has expressed

an interest in using the former

Aranui Primary School site.

St George’s/Iona Presbyterian

Church on Breezes Rd is looking

at purchasing the school site

when it becomes available.

Reverend Sheena Dickson has

described it as a “brave and bold

move” for the small parish of 25.

“What we are thinking of is

a place for the community to

worship . . . the possibilities are

exciting,” she said.

The church’s former site

was severely damaged in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake

and it currently doesn’t have a

permanent place to worship.

The city council currently allows

the church a permit to use

a house on Pages Rd, but it will

run out soon.

It also shares its spaces with

parishes, including the New

Brighton Union Church and

Linwood Avenue Union Church.

The school site, located on 257

Breezes Rd, is currently being

passed on from the Ministry of

Education to Land Information

process.

public work. The primary school

closed in 2016 when it merged

with Aranui High, Avondale

Primary and Wainoni School

to form Haeata Community

Campus.

Rev Dickson said the church

would like to keep the existing

tenants on the school site as

it wants to be “engaged in the

community as much as possible.”

The site is currently used

by under-five parenting programme,

The Incredible Years,

and alternative education programme,

Te Kupenga o Aranui.

“It is very tentative at the moment

for us . . . we would have

to have huge support from the

wider church,” Rev Dickson

said.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board member Tim Baker believes

the idea “will be brilliant”

and a “massive

benefit to the

community.”

Mr Baker

said retirement

villages are lacking

in the area

and people are

being forced to

move out of their

communities to

receive this care.

“They are trying to stay in

their houses for as long as

they can because they don’t want

to move out of their communities.”

He believes it would be a waste

of money to pull the school

buildings and hall down.

“If (the church) bought the

site, they could use the buildings

and hall for church purposes,

and rooms could also be rented

to tenants, some of which are

already there.”

‘All Blacks of singing’

WINNING IS now second

City Chorus, which took home

the national Sweet Adelines

competition title for the 11th

time.

The group has finished first

in every national barbershop

competition it has entered since

forming in 1987, and has been

referred to as the “All Blacks of

singing.”

Singing under the direction

of musical director Virginia

Humphrey-Taylor, the team is

made up of 130 women, mainly

from Christchurch.

In the competition held earlier

this month, contestants were

assessed by four international

judges from the United States

and Sweden.

Said Ms Humphrey-Taylor:

“The judges were excited to see

a performance of such a high

international level. The beautiful

singing and the high energy field

that was delivered was thoroughly

enjoyed.”

As the national champion,

the group will represent New

Zealand at the Sweet Adelines

international competition in

New Orleans next year.

But the city council’s head of

urban regeneration, urban design

and heritage Carolyn Ingles said

the plan has not been deferred.

“The draft LTP allocates more

than $4.5 million in funding to

upgrade Marine Pde and Brighton

Mall . . . and for tree pits and

rain gardens in the commercial

centre,” she said.

The plan also includes additional

funding for New Brighton

projects over the next three years

including $9.7 million for phase

one of the hot water salt pools,

the South New Brighton Park

Development and the Pages Rd

Bridge replacement.

Ms Ingles said the master plan

always anticipated projects would

be delivered over a short, medium

and long-term time-frame.

It comes after Eastern Vision

raised concerns over the master

plan’s progress to the city council’s

Long Term Plan 2018-2028.

In a submission it said, if the

plan is not moved forward, “irreparable

damage will be done to

the communities and businesses

served by this hub”.

Eastern Vision spokesman

Evan Smith told Pegasus Post

the master plan has never been

delivered on, a part from on the

foreshore.

He said when he talks to

business, landowners and community

organisations they are

very “disillusioned” and have no

confidence in the city council or

DCL.

Mr Smith said there was a

“large outcry” from New Brighton

in the last LTP.

“This time they are so disillusioned,

so disengaged with the

process they thought why even

bother to say anything anymore.

They have given up,” he said.

So far, as part of the plans the

Community garden group celebrates

•From page 1

The group has various projects

under way including running a

shop on Wednesdays and Saturdays

selling feijoas, walnuts, bees

wax and food wraps, kale powder

and lavender cream.

“People come in and buy. It

is just a huge compliment

people are supporting what

we are doing,” Miss Allden

said.

The group has started a native

gardening section, planted heritage

and apple trees and weaved

garden beds.

Last week co-founder Hayley

Guglietta made a submission to

the city council’s Long Term Plan

2018-2028 to discuss options for

the garden becoming an extension

of Avebury Park.

It is hoping the city council

will take over the land to give

certainty the garden is permanent.

Miss Alden said the ultimate

goal is to have a clubhouse in

2021 so it can do more workshops,

sell produce and potentially

run a bike hire, picnic areas

and have a outdoor pizza oven.

“We are applying for funding

but the idea is we will be selfsustaining,”

she said.

Retirement

village residents

win battle over

bus access

DIANA ISAAC Retirement

Village residents have won

the battle of the buses after

Environment Canterbury bent

over backwards to include them

on a new route.

About 80 pensioners living in

the retirement village on Philpotts

Rd, Mairehau, presented a petition

to ECan, pleading for it to

reconsider route changes to the

Orbiter bus which would see their

closest bus stop move 900m away

from the village.

ECan originally proposed cutting

their bus route outside the

village and moving it 1km away

to Innes Rd. But, during a packed

meeting in the village on Friday,

ECan staff presented a new route.

ECan chairman Steve Lowndes

said he hoped residents liked what

had been planned.

“I told you (at the protest) we

would bend over backwards to

find a solution to suit you.”

The new proposal will see the

No 44 Shirley bus connect close to

the village, and a new stop will be

provided 150m from the entrance.

The bus will run every half

hour, with extended hours for

Peni gets ‘new perspective’ in bush

A HAEATA Community

Campus student has walked

away with a new perspective on

life after taking part in a popular

outdoor adventure programme.

Year 13 student Peni Junior

Iva, aka PJ, has returned from

three weeks at Outward Bound.

He went with 13 other

“watchmates”, all from different

parts of the country, and all

with their own individual

backgrounds.

“Everyone was different, they

all had inspiring stories,” said PJ.

He was awarded a scholarship

to attend the 21-day course at

the Outward Bound centre in

Anakiwa, Queen Charlotte

Sound.

Its ‘school leadership’ course

is designed to help young people

become fitter and stronger and

further develop their social

skills and confidence.

The outdoor experience was

a highlight for PJ. “We did a

lot of activities, like kayaking,

tramping, rock climbing, high

ropes and sailing, all of them

were new for me.”

Rock climbing while

blindfolded gave PJ the

opportunity to trust himself and

trust others.

“I was shaking and my arms

were giving up, but once you get

to the top and see the amazing

IN THE WILD: Peni Junior Iva (inset) stayed in a camp like this as part of his Outward Bound

experience.

view, you are proud of yourself.”

Learning mental toughness

and how to handle frustration

and anger were some key skills

that PJ learnt through the

various challenges.

The staff taught him about

“living in the moment” and

“not stressing about things you

cannot change”.

The solo experience, which

involves spending two nights

and two days alone in the bush,

gave PJ a chance to reflect on

life.

Describing the experience,

PJ said “they drop you off at

night, so I just focused on what

I needed to do to get set up and

then getting to sleep as soon as

possible.”

While on his own, he thought

about all the good things in his

life that weren’t with him there,

particularly his family.

“I missed my nephew a lot,”

he said.

It was hard to say goodbye to

his ‘watchmates’ but good to

be home. And his family has

noticed a change – they say he’s

more patient.

What would he say to others

interested in Outward Bound?

“Just do it, live in the

moment,” PJ said.

Parker to tee off against world’s best

SPORTS

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRISTCHURCH club golfer

Tom Parker will tee off with

the New Zealand team at the

junior golf World Cup in Japan

next month.

Parker will join Juliana

Hung and Hiroki Miya,

of the Russley club, in the

seven-strong team, alongside

Aucklanders Carmen Lim and

Rose Zheng, Kevin Koong

from North Harbour and

Shaun Campbell from Bay of

Plenty.

The selection comes on

the back of what has been

a remarkably successful

12 months for the three

Canterbury golfers.

It will be Parker’s second

time competing in the

tournament. Last year he

finished 24th overall and

helped the New Zealand boys

team to finish sixth.

“It’s my favourite event I’ve

ever played in,” said Parker.

“The course layout is

awesome. It’s perfectly

manicured, narrow with either

tree trouble or out-of-bounds

either side so you’ve got to hit it

straight.”

After finishing his final year

SWING: Tom Parker (above) will join Hiroki Miya and Juliana Hung in the New Zealand team

to tee off at the junior golf World Cup in Japan next month.

at Christchurch Boys’ High

School in 2017, Parker has

been able to concentrate on his

game before beginning college

at the University of Oregon in

the United States.

With a strong support unit

around him, he’s confident of a

good result in Japan.

“I feel like going back

there this time I have extra

confidence. . . . I’ve been there

before and will be doing a few

things differently this time

around,” said Parker.

He will be joined in the four

strong boys team by Miya, who

is having a year to remember

after the biggest win of his

young golfing career at the

Faldo Series Asia grand-final

in Vietnam in March.

“I’m really excited. I think

we have a really strong team

and have an opportunity to do

really well,” said Miya.

Hung will look to continue

a strong run of results in

New Zealand and abroad when

she represents the girls team.

The New Zealand stroke

play champion represented

her country last week at

the Queen Sirikit Cup –

Asia-Pacific amateur ladies

golf team championship in

Thailand.

The junior golf World Cup

will feature 15 men’s and nine

women’s teams.

The tournament runs from

June 10-15 at the Chukyo Golf

Club Ishino course.

Having three Christchurch

golfers named in the team is

a rare accomplishment and a

strong sign of a talented young

crop of golfers emerging in the

region.

“We are very proud of the

achievement to have Juliana,

Tom and Hiroki selected

to represent New Zealand

at the junior World Cup

event, it’s quite a remarkable

achievement,” said Canterbury

Golf development manager

Rachel Thow.

“These players have

worked hard to earn their

selection in this team and will

gain valuable international

experience amongst some of

the best junior players in the

world.”

SPORTS

FOCUSED: Shirley’s Heneli Moala sets his sights on a loose ball.

SBHS go down to Lincoln

in another close contest

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School’s

second half rally wasn’t enough

as a late penalty saw them lose

18-20 to Lincoln Combined on

Saturday.

SBHS had trailed 12-6 at halftime

in their UC Championship

round two fixture at Lincoln

High School before they came

to life.

Two tries to open the second

half saw them turn their six

point deficit into a six point lead

midway through the final stanza.

While Lincoln replied with an

unconverted try of their own,

SBHS cling to a one point advantage

until the final minutes.

SBHS had the chance to

extend their advantage with

several long-range penalty goal

attempts, but each failed to split

the uprights. Lincoln calmly slotted

the match-winner 5min from

full-time.

SBHS will look for their first

SCHOLARSHIPS & SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

Ultimate campus taking shape

at QEII Park

Construction of the new state-of-the-art campus for

Avonside Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ High Schools is progressing

rapidly with opening on track for next year.

Sue and John.

The new campus will feature a Performing Arts Centre

with a 750-seat theatre and a 200-seat theatre, a hockey

turf, four sports fields, three indoor gymnasiums, a café,

and a large library and learning centre.

Both Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume and Shirley

Boys’ High School Headmaster John Laurenson are

excited by the progress.

“There are now more than 100 workers on site – that

will peak to more than 300 in coming months. The steel

framing is up and the concrete slabs are down and we

can see now just how big this campus will be – it’s simply

wonderful,” says John Laurenson.

“You can finally see all that we have been talking about

and dreaming about taking shape. We will be onsite with

our students, staff and community making the most of all

of the fantastic new facilities before we know it.”

The campus is due to open in Term Two of 2019. It will

be the first time in New Zealand’s history that two single

sex schools will be co-located.

John Laurenson says the co-location will enable the

schools to offer students more.

“Because we’re building together, we’ve been able to

build bigger and better facilities.”

Sue Hume says the co-location will also enable better

educational opportunities.

“We’ll collaborate on teaching some senior subjects,

so we can offer students wider choice and there’s also

the opportunity to work together on co-curricular

opportunities – such as productions, sports competitions

and the like.”

Both principals are keen to point out that the colocation

is not a merger.

“We’ll still be Shirley and they’ll still be Avonside. We’ll

work together, but both schools will retain their own

culture, identity, staff and uniform. This is not a co-ed

school,” says John Laurenson.

“Research shows that single sex education benefits

both boys and girls,” says Sue Hume. “Boys perform

better academically and girls participate more. This new

campus, has been designed so that students will still

spend most of their time in a single sex environment.”

Both Sue and John say the campus will be an asset the

east of Christchurch will be proud of.

“We’ll be right alongside the new QE2 Sport and

Recreation Centre, the School of Gymnastics and have a

satellite unit for Ferndale School onsite. It’s going to be a

great place to learn.”

AVONSIDE GIRLS’

HIGH SCHOOL

OPEN EVENING

Thursday 24 May 2018 from 5.00pm – 7.00pm

The evening begins in the gymnasium at 5.00pm, with an

address from the Principal Mrs Sue Hume, and student

representatives. A tour of the school follows, with the

opportunity to talk to teachers and students.

We look forward to welcoming all prospective students and

families for 2019.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

PEGASUS POST

Headache & Migraine

can be treated

Scm

The crosses are the area of the

muscle spasms (triggerpoints).

The red areas is where the

pain is felt.

Temporalis

muscle

Neck muscle that causes headaches, earaches and facial pain.

Most headaches and migraines are

caused by an accumulation of

factors. Factors like the condition

of your spine, neck, jaw and face muscles,

but also posture, breathing pattern and

your ability to manage stress. Once the

threshold is reached, you will suffer a

headache. Research shows in most cases,

the neck plays a significant role (Dwyer

et al. 1990). Migraine sufferers who react

well to migraine medication have excellent

results when treated for neck dysfunction

(Pavese et al. 1994).

Our physiotherapists have extensive

experience in treating headaches and

can quickly determine what treatment is

needed. This often leads to a significant

decrease in both the intensity and

frequency of your headaches.

As physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk

explains, when our muscles tighten this

can refer pain to many of the areas around

the face and head. Dehydration can be the

catalyst for tightening the neck muscle

(SCM), which causes pain in the ear,

forehead and around the eye and jaw-joint

areas. Tightening of the temporalis muscle

can refer pain to the teeth, which can be

confusing when you visit the dentist to

have it checked and the dentist can’t find a

reason for the recurring pain.

Teeth grinding at night and teeth

clenching during the day are also a major

cause of muscle tightening.

Physiotherapy treatment for these

problems is based on deactivating the

‘trigger points’ through hands-on massage

therapy to relax the muscles, which is the

least invasive and a very effective form

of treatment. Dry needling is another

technique used for muscle relaxation, and

can be used with the client’s consent, Ietje

says.

Immediate relief is achieved by releasing

your tight muscles. At the same time we

work on the cause of the problem. For

example, a “feedback” headband can be

provided to be worn at night to help you

The muscle that causes headaches and toothaches.

learn not to clench your teeth while asleep.

Sometimes we need to work on the neck

part of your spine, where overuse or stress

can cause muscles to tighten, creating pain:’

Teaching self-management of stress can

also be an important aspect of the total

treatment, as well as teaching breathing

techniques, which go hand in hand with

managing stress.

Our qualified physiotherapists specialise

in dealing with chronic pain, such as

headaches, earache, toothache, and facial

and jaw pain. ………………...We can help

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Supporting Your

Bowel & Digestive

Function Helps

Prevent Disease

It is most important to keep the whole

digestive & elimination systems of the

body working efficiently. Otherwise toxins

that have not been eliminated set the stage

for disease. Many diseases have been linked

with micro-organisms (virus) or a bacterial

component. Generally these microorganisms

or bacteria can only survive

due to the fact that the environment they

are in is suitable for their survival. Non

eliminated toxins are probably one of the

main causative factors for their survival.

We know that when the digestive system

& bowel function are poor we have many

more health problems. These include

arthritis, digestive problems like reflux &

stomach pain, bladder infections, chronic

skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis &

rashes, poor eyesight, pain & inflammation,

tumors & a weakened immune system just

to name a few.

Nature’s Sunshine LBS II contains a

highly effective blend of natural herbs to

support the whole digestive system & it is

especially effective at cleansing the lower

bowel & intestinal tract. It is commonly

used for arthritis, constipation, diarrhea,

digestive problems, dry stool, fever, colds &

influenza, flatulence, gallstones, gout, skin

conditions like eczema & psoriasis, urinary

infections, liver dysfunction, Candida,

weakened immune function & for people

who want to keep their health as good as

possible.

The herbs in LBS II help stimulate the

production of digestive fluids & bile for

efficient digestion. This alone may help

prevent many diseases as a properly working

digestive system will itself neutralise many

disease causing organisms before they

have a chance to cause any problems. LBS

II also stimulates peristaltic action of the

colon effectively cleansing the colon of any

accumulated build-ups of waste material. It

also relaxes abdominal cramping & spasms,

enhances liver function, purifies the blood,

neutralizes acidic conditions, helps destroy

intestinal parasites & worms, & fights

infection.

Keeping your digestive system & bowels

functioning efficiently is definitely &

important step in obtaining & maintaining

good long term health.

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults

& as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.

Scientists at Rush University Medical Center found those most

deficient in vitamin B12 to have the smallest brain mass & the lowest

scores on tests measuring short-term memory, concentration &

brain performance. Another study showed that older people with

higher levels of B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier brains &

score higher on cognitive tests than those with lower levels. Yet

another recent landmark study showed that B12 supplementation

slows the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage & declining cognitive

function. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health,

regulation of mood & sleep cycles, nerve health & repair, &

prevention of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor

that is known to cause damage & plaque in the blood vessels. It can

also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a

34% decrease risk of vision loss in a study of participants aged 40+

who supplemented with B12. Another study linked a higher risk

of hearing loss in subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12 appears to be our body’s

ability to absorb it declining with age as the digestive system

becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux medication & other drugs

further reduce B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in

the form of Methylcobalamin

sublingual tablets that are

dissolved in the

mouth & thru

bypassing the

digestive tract have

been shown to

effectively raise B12

levels in the body.

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the right heat

pump for your home

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,

most homes include at least one heat pump,

if not a whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more

convenient than a log burner as you just need

to press a button. But how do you decide what

is best? Choosing the right sized heat pump is

key to ensuring optimum comfort levels. Every

situation varies and it is therefore important

to get professional advice from heat pump

experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

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

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it

is important to select the correct size for 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.

Other things to consider when choosing a

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi

capabilities.

Heating is a major investment in your home

and it is vital to get the right advice.

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,

installation and servicing of all major brands

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as

to which system will suit your application

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no

obligation quote and will come to your home

to see what is required.

Get rid of

dampness

in your house

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm and

healthy for their families throughout winter.

Rising damp is an issue that affects many of

our older properties which suffer from poor, or

no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, postquake,

many people have relocated to homes

that suffer from rising damp which can be

associated with health problems. Independent

tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can

rise from the ground and enter a house every

day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation

and musty smells. Moulds can produce

various allergic reactions and the

frail, elderly and very young are

especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd

is a locally owned and operated

firm. The team understands the

problems caused by rising damp

and are there to help. They will

come to your damp home and

pump a lightweight, flowable

foam concrete under your

timber floored home. Specially

PEGASUS POST

adapted for our New Zealand conditions and

applications it provides a layer of protection

against rising moisture. An unexpected

benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam

Concrete have noticed recently, is that many

owners of properties which had underfloor

foam concrete installed, reported that it also

provided protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

now for your free, no obligation quote and

ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or

HOME & HEATING

Fresh air

in your home

All houses require air exchange in order

to stay fresh and dry. No one likes to live

in a stuffy, smelly, damp home. Indoor air

quality is important for the health of the

occupants. Houses can have many sources of

contaminants, such as bathrooms, kitchens,

pets, smokers, and even furnishings. Opening

the windows can refresh the air, but is not

always an option for security reasons and can

also lead to heat energy being lost to outside.

Although older houses have small gaps

around windows and doors, you want to be

able to control the flow of air. You don’t want

air coming in to the bathroom or kitchen and

pushing the soiled air around the house. It

is better to expel the air out of kitchens and

bathrooms to outside. This will draw air in

from the rest of the house to replace the air that

has been removed.

Modern houses are very airtight and

theoretically require a source of incoming air

to allow kitchen and bathroom extraction to

work optimally. Ventilation systems should be

low air velocity and low air pressure so as not

to cause draughts.

There are two main types of ventilation

system: Positive pressure and Balanced

pressure. Positive pressure systems, such as the

Dry-Matic, bring filtered, warmed attic air into

the house, which then percolates through the

rooms, pushing the damper stale air out.

Balanced pressure systems bring in a

similar amount of air to the amount they

exhaust. Balanced pressure systems with

Heat Exchange, such as the HEX390, use the

heat of the outgoing air to warm the incoming

air from outside. These are the most energy

efficient systems available, as they recover up

to 80% of the energy in the air, rather than

losing it to outside. Heat exchangers work just

as well cooling incoming air when the house is

cooled in summer.

The NZ building code has recommended

air exchange rates for houses. To ascertain

the required airflow for your home, please

contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH

(0800 766 684), who will also be able to

recommend a solution if your ventilation

doesn’t yet meet the New Zealand standard.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

New premises

for car light

specialists

NEW

LOCATION

95

gasson st

Long-established car light specialists,

Braxton Car Lights, are now shining their

lights from a sparkling new address – just

around the corner from their familiar

Brougham Street site.

Just prior to Christmas, the business

moved from 325 Brougham Street to 95

Gasson St, where they offer a brighter

showroom, easier access for their customers

and plenty of off-street parking.

“We’re all set up in our new premises,”

sales manager Richard Vernimmen says,

“and continuing to provide our customers

with an extensive range of replacement

lights for most Japanese, European and

New Zealand-made vehicles. We can cover

most vehicles on the road, and all our lights

are fully checked and in perfect working

order.”

If they don’t have it in stock, they can

source it from one of the other branches in

the nationwide BE Group, Richard says. BE

is one of New Zealand’s largest importers of

car, truck and commercial parts.

Braxton Car Lights also offers a repair

service for headlights, with their skilled

staff of three having 80 years’ experience

in the automotive trade between them.

They also specialise in light adjuster and

light conversion of American

car lights and their repair

service includes plastic

welding, drying out, and

re-silvering, re-sealing

and lens refurbishment.

Their services can also

be arranged through

your own local garage or

workshop.

So, next time you need

replacement car lights, call

into Braxton Car Lights’ bright new

showroom, 95 Gasson St, phone 0800 225

483, email carlights@carlights.co.nz.
