Schools join

fight to

safety

intersection

• By Sophie Cornish

BREENS Intermediate School

principal Nikki Clarke dreads the

day she gets a phone call saying one

of her pupils has been hurt at the

contentious Harewood, Gardiners

and Breens Rd intersection.

“I believe it’s only a matter of time

before someone is injured or worse

. . . it will be so terribly sad when we

know we could have been pro-active

and done something to make it

safer,” said Mrs Clarke during a city

council Long Term Plan 2018-2028

submission last week.

Mrs Clarke represented one of

two schools which submitted on the

intersection, joining the fight with

city councillor Aaron Keown to get

the intersection upgraded to lights.

Cr Keown has been lobbying to

have the intersection upgraded for

more than two years, and said he

has been contacted about it more

than any other issue over his 10

years of being elected.

Breens Intermediate is 350m

from the intersection, which

sees 10 lanes converging, and Mrs

Clarke said more than a third of

pupils pass through it to get to

school.

from the reporter’s desk

THE DRUM is beating to see an upgrade of the Breens,

Harewood and Gardiners Rd intersection.

Emotional submissions were made by schools at the Long

Term Plan 2018-2028 hearings last week (see page 1).

Children spoke about their fears when crossing the

intersection, which sees 10 lanes converging.

The issue affects many groups which are all pushing for lights

to be installed.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel doesn’t believe lights are the answer,

though, saying they could make the intersection busier and, as a

result, more dangerous.

But one eight-year-old told city councillors last week – “we

need lights before someone gets killed, not after.”

Let’s hope funding is granted so changes can be made.

Row over historic St Albans villa settled

• By Kurt Bayer

A LEGAL row over the

potentially multimillion-dollar

repair bill to a quake-damaged

historic St Albans villa has now

been settled.

The debate over costs to repair

Elizabeth Drayton’s beloved

category one-listed property

reached the High Court last

week after nearly six years of

wrangling.

Drayton

claimed her

insurer, IAG New

Zealand, the

parent company

of State, offered

Elizabeth

Drayton

a strategy to

repair the badly

damaged house

with a fixed quote

of $1.84 million.

However, she said reviews of

the repair strategy, which took

into account associated costs,

put the rebuild at $3.1 million.

However, the dispute was

settled after the first day of the

hearing.

Ms Drayton refused to

comment about the settlement.

She became emotional

in court last Tuesday when

describing how the heritage

property was devastated in

the September 4, 2010, and

February 22, 2011, quakes. The

double-brick villa was built in

1899 by master builders and

bricklayers, brothers Harry and

Philip Soanes, as a luxury show

home to exhibit their high-level

workmanship.

Ms Drayton fell in love with

the house, with its Kauri floors

and doors, Victorian veranda,

Marseille roof tiles, stained

glass, arches and detailed brick

corbels, after returning from

London where she had renovated

three Victorian properties.

She bought the property in

2004 and moved in soon after,

naming it “Soanes House”

and sculpting award-winning

gardens. With her father being

a founding member of the

New Zealand Historic Places

Trust, now known as Heritage

New Zealand, Drayton told the

court she had a “strong sense

of responsibility to its heritage”

and carried out $250,000 in

renovations from 2007-2009,

including strengthening its roof.

But when the magnitude 7.1

earthquake struck in 2010, the

villa suffered extensive interior

and exterior damage.

The Boxing Day, 2010,

aftershock caused more cracking

before the deadly 2011 jolt

smashed it even more.

HISTORY:

Elizabeth

Drayton’s

beloved

category one

listed property

was devastated

in the quakes.

PHOTO:

HISTORIC

PLACES TRUST

In 2015, a quantity surveyor

assessed the repairs to be $1.5

million, the court heard.

An original peer review

put the repair costs at $1.9

million before escalating to $2.6

million.

But Ms Drayton says in May

last year, IAG came up with a

new strategy for repair with a

fixed quote of $1.8 million.

She ordered a review of the

strategy by the original quantity

surveyor who took into account

associated costs that Ms Drayton

says were not considered by IAG,

which spiralled the repair bill to

$3.1 million. - NZ Herald

Edgeware Pool worth the cost

On the

back of the

Papanui-Innes

Community

Board’s request

for $5 million

from the city

council to

build the Edgeware Pool,

member Jo Byrne clears

up any confusion over the

funding bid

THERE ARE tough decisions

to be made by city councillors

currently working through the

LTP. This includes trying to keep

rates at a manageable level for

all, while balancing this with

community desires for facilities

and services.

I would like the public to know

that the request for money for the

Edgeware Pool Group actually

came from the Papanui-Innes

Community Board not the pool

group.

There has been some

misinformation about this in the

media recently.

We believe that this model is

excellent – this is an outstanding

community group working

hard to replace a much-loved

and needed community facility.

This pool won’t have ongoing

operating expenses, unlike the

extravagant pools and leisure

centres planned elsewhere in the

city.

The budget for this pool is $5

million. For this we get a larger

summer pool, and a smaller

covered learners’ pool to provide

year-round lessons for those

learning to swim.

We could build four of these

modest facilities across the city

for the price of the one planned

in Linwood, or the one in

Hornby. We are a city in recovery

PLANS: The new designs for the Edgeware Pool include an

indoor learners’ area and heated outdoor pool.

and we need to be building more

simple facilities initially and add

to them as we can.

Swimming pools are extremely

important to an island nation

such as ours. We need our

children and young people to be

able to swim and be safe in the

water that is all around us. We

need community pools to do

this.

The Ministry of Education has

reduced access to pools through

school pool closures – often the

schools still with pools are more

affluent.

We can’t turn into a country

where only people who can

afford to learn to swim do so.

PHOTO: APOLLO DESIGN

We need to make swimming

accessible and affordable for all

and a pool in Edgeware is a great

step in this process. Every time

we talk to communities and

they tell us what they want – the

children say a pool.

Children don’t get to vote

but should have a voice. I urge

everyone to support the new pool

at Edgeware.

Come along to the Edgeware

Pool Group’s next quiz night at

Bailies Bar on Colombo St to

support its fundraising.

This group is not sitting round

waiting for a handout, but I truly

hope the city gives them a hand

up.

Breens pupil Anna Scullion also

attended the hearing and read

out comments from other pupils

about the issue.

“I have to run for dear life so I

don’t get hit by cars coming off

Gardiners Rd,” said one.

Harewood School principal

Julie Greenwood said the safety

of her pupils and their families

needs to be prioritised.

“A number of families in this

area have indicated to us that

they find the intersection a real

barrier for sending children to

our school,” she said, during her

submission.

Two pupils, Jacob Bates, 10,

and Frances Pickrill-Kay, 8, also

spoke.

“Some people say they won’t

put lights there until someone is

killed, but won’t that be too late?

We need lights before someone

gets killed, not after.” said

Frances.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel agreed

that something needs to be done,

however, she said traffic lights

may not be the answer.

“We have heard from people

living in the Fendalton area, where

the installation of traffic lights

has actually had a worse affect, it’s

made it more popular for traffic to

use . . . all I’m saying is that there

may be other ways of solving the

problem.”

Dealing with door-knocking peddlers

Get your

‘do not knock’

sticker

BRYNDWR RESIDENTS could

receive more education about

their rights when it comes to

door-to-door sales reps and

mobile truck shops.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board deputy

chairman Aaron Campbell said

Bryndwr and Linwood are two

suburbs being targeted by these

groups which can be hard to

turn down.

“When you get door-knocked

by these door-to-door sales

people, some of them can be

difficult to say no to . . . I talk to

people and they get stressed by it

basically.”

Mr Campbell is working with

city council staff to create Welcome

to Bryndwr packs which

will contain ‘do not knock’

stickers and information about

consumer rights.

“This will give people good

information about what their

rights are when that happens.”

The packs will be similar to

others in the city, which have

information about local community

groups, programmes and

activities, including the Citizens

Advice Bureau, Neighbourhood

Support and Tenants’ Protection

Association.

Mr Campbell hopes they could

be distributed to people living

in social housing units, such as

those managed by the Otautahi

Housing Trust and Housing NZ.

They may also be distributed

through community groups to

other members of the community,

particularly people who are

older or living alone.

Mr Campbell said the stickers

are well-known in the industry

and have been around for a

while.

“People may know about

them but might not be sure

where to get them . . . this will

hopefully be a disincentive for

those sales people to knock on

the doors.”

Camera to nab Bealey Ave red light-runners

• By Julia Evans

THE CITY is about to get a

camera to catch red light-runners

– the first since the 1990s.

The camera is being installed

at the Bealey Ave and Madras

St intersection, but will move

around

the city’s

“high risk”

intersections,

city council

acting head

of transport

Mark Pinner

said.

options, Mr Pinner said. But it

would be run on the same

model as cameras currently

used in Wellington and

Auckland, he said.

“Council will be informing

motorists about red light camera

enforcement, and signage will be

part of that information.”

He said the city council has

launched the campaign to reduce

numbers, as crashes at signalised

intersections are a “really

significant” road safety problem

in the city.

“Traffic signal crashes are close

to a quarter of all crashes in the

city, with a social cost of about

$27 million per year.

“Red light-running is a part

of the problem and needs to be

addressed,’’ Mr Pinner said.

Acting road policing manager

Senior Sergeant Kelly Larsen said

red light-running incidents were

too high.

“More drivers than we would

like enter intersections on orange

lights. These often change to

red while the driver is still in

the intersection, creating an

unnecessary road safety risk,” she

said.

It comes with the release of a

report from traffic engineering

consultants ViaStrada –

Factors influencing red light

running - a Christchurch

investigation – which said the

proportion of red light-running

crashes in Christchurch is

“very high” compared with other

cities.

“There’s a mix of things

that might work to reduce the

A red light-running

road safety campaign is also

being investigated, Mr Pinner

said.

Former Rangi students

take top scholarships

•From page 1

Isabella was the only student from

the South Island to receive the premier

scholarship award.

The award is valued at $10,000 and is

only given to 10 people throughout New

She was also the only student in the

country to receive ‘top subject scholar’

awards in two subjects – art history and

music.

Charlotte also received a scholarship

Cobb & Co

coming to

Cranford St

• By Sophie Cornish

FAMILY RESTAURANT Cobb &

Co is set to return to Christchurch

later this year.

The New Zealand-owned

‘western-saloon-style’ restaurant

is expected to open at 484 Cranford

St before Christmas.

Cobb & Co managing director

Ben Gower said the 200-seat

restaurant and children’s play area

will have a “hybrid” of “old Cobb

favourites and some new stuff” on

its menu.

“The menu will have lots of

items customers will remember

– our Cobb schnitzel, shrimp

cocktails and traffic light drinks,”

said Mr Gower.

“We are excited to have a presence

back in Christchurch. We

know from previous openings in

the last four years that our restaurants

have been popular additions

to the hospitality scene.”

At its peak, Cobb & Co had 37

restaurants across the country.

In 2016, the company announced

plans to establish as many as

30 new restaurants around

the country. The chain opened

in 1973, with its trademark red saloon

style doors. Mr Gower said

there isn’t any plans to open a

second restaurant just yet.

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 its 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

Diana Isaac Retirement Village

staff working until 9pm.

More girls needed for

new under-16 grade

• By Zahra Shahtahmasebi

CHRISTCHURCH’S new

under-16 girls rugby grade has

only just enough players to

field three teams for a 10-a-side

competition.

The grade, which was set up after

the Canterbury Rugby Football

Union ruled last

year that girls must

be 16-years-old to

play in the women’s

competition, needs a

dramatic increase in

numbers to be able

to offer a 15-a-side

competition.

CRFU chief

executive Nathan

Godfrey said the

grade aimed to support

the growth of women’s rugby

by creating a safe and inclusive

environment for girls to have fun.

But under-16s grade manager

Tamara Toaolamai said the CRFU

was paying lip-service to the idea,

as not a lot of thought has been

put into the development of the

grade.

She said the CRFU had put the

responsibility for recruiting more

players on parents and coaches

like Toaolamai.

“I’m a teacher and a mum of

four – I don’t have the time to go

around and promote a grade, and

it’s actually not my job.”

A new women’s and school girls’

Tamara and Naia

Toaolamai-Holden

rugby development officer has

been appointed by the CRFU, but

it is unclear if they have had any

active involvement with promoting

the grade.

Toaolamai’s daughter and High

School Old Boys’ top try scorer

from last season Naia Toaolamai-

Holden, 15, has been forced to

watch her former team

from the side-line following

the CRFU’s new

age rule.

She said the women’s

grade had been a great

environment for her

as it provided opportunities

to learn from

experienced players

like former Black Fern

Amiria Rule. She is one

of the oldest and most

experienced players in the new

under-16s grade.

Burnside women’s assistant

coach Claude Smith said the grade

needed to be focused on providing

quality competition, resources and

supportive coaches to help grow

the game for both experienced

and new players.

Ash Brett, 14, has played rugby

for 10 years, and was disappointed

to be missing out on the chance to

develop her game in the women’s

grade. “I don’t think age matters

as much as experience does – if

you have played rugby for a number

of years at a high standard, age

shouldn’t matter.”

US cricket team lures opener

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

DAVID WAKEFIELD grew

up wanting to play cricket for

Canterbury but now has the

chance to push for playing

time with his place of birth, the

United States.

The 23-year-old Old Boys

Collegians opener was born in

Charlotte, North Carolina, before

his family returned to live

in Christchurch when he was a

toddler.

The past two seasons he has

been the second top run-scorer

in Christchurch club cricket

and cracked the Canterbury

A team where he made 90 on

debut against Auckland A.

Last week, the former

Christchurch Boys’ High School

standout travelled to Fort Lauderdale,

Florida, to try to make

the US team.

Wakefield said his rapid

form progression could be put

down to him “backing himself”

and enhancing his skills with

overseas stints in Adelaide and

Hampshire, United Kingdom,

over the past three or four

seasons.

Wakefield worked on his

and the process that goes into

Wakefield said playing in

the Southern Premier League

in Hampshire saw him play

against a high standard of players,

including Australian international

Travis Head and fellow

Cantabrian Logan van Beek.

He said juggling the desire

to one day play for Canterbury

with the new opportunity to

he continued to ponder.

two half centuries in three

selection games for the team

A 30-man squad will be

in Houston.

Wakefield said the prospect

of playing in the US team in the

West Indies domestic competition

is appealing, plus playing

for promotion from the ICC tier

is enticing.

For now he has to juggle his

cricket ambitions with his law

Moulai on track to world champs

• By Jacob Page

MIDDLE-DISTANCE runner

Nick Moulai has run himself

into a promising future.

The 18-year-old former St

Bede’s College student is on

the cusp of running for New

Zealand in the 1500m at the

junior world championships

in Finland, and will then take

up a four-year scholarship at

Mississippi State University in

the United States.

Moulai has made the

qualifying time for Finland but

so have Isaiah Priddey, Samule

Tanner and Theo Quax, son of

former middle-distance great,

Dick Quax.

With only two places up

for grabs, Moulai will have to

earn his spot with fast times

in a couple of prelude races in

Europe.

“There’s a lot of quality

runners at the moment, which is

exciting, but I just have to focus

on my preparation and hope that

goes well.”

“Life is pretty busy but it’s

about managing my time, my

training on the roads, and my

rest and recovery,” Moulai said.

The former surf lifesaver and

sprinter came to middle-distance

running six years ago, and

has been coached by Graeme

Christey ever since.

Their partnership will end

when Moulai takes up his

scholarship in the US.

The talented teen recently went

for a training run with Kiwi

Olympic silver medallist Nick

Willis, who took time to share

some advice,

“Nick said every runner is

working hard and putting the

training in, but it’s more about

the little two per cent things

you do that can turn you from a

good runner to a great runner,”

Moulai said.

“Things like getting nine hours

of sleep, doing your stretches,

and prioritising recovery all

make a big difference.”

Moulai said he was eager

to test himself in the US at an

NCAA division one school.

“The quality of runners over

there is incredible,” he said.

“There are 10 guys running

between 3min 36sec and 3min

44sec so it’ll be great to be

around that culture.”

Burnside High golfer to take on world’s best

• By Gordon Findlater

BURNSIDE High’s Juliana

Hung will tee off with the New

Zealand team at the junior

golf World Cup in Japan next

month.

Hung (Russley) will join

Tom Parker (Christchurch)

and Hiroki Miya (Russley)

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.

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.

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

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.

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.”

attributes needed to not only achieve their

goals but to make a difference in their

communities. Our teachers ensure girls

are inspired and committed to learning as

they develop their unique way of learning

and achieving. The focus across Years 1 -

encompassing intellectual, social, physical,

emotional, and cultural needs.

Selwyn House is committed to providing

which can be successfully built upon.

Core learning in reading, writing and

mathematics is a priority. Specialist programmes

in Art, Creative Writing, Leadership,

enhancing learning.

Selwyn House provides each girl with a

personalised learning experience. Each

classroom and specialist teacher has the

time to a foster meaningful relationships

with each student. Due to our comprehensive

learning environment, our girls are

highly skilled, stand out among their peers

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.

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.

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

NOR’WEST NEWS

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.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd

now for your free, no obligation quote and

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor

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.

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

Celebrating 56 years

on the local music scene

NEVILLE Wilkins & the Viscounts celebrate

56 years on the music scene this weekend

making them one of New Zealand’s longest

established dance bands.

Straits, Tom Jones, Cliff Richard, Englebert

Humperdink, and Elvis Presley,” said Neville.

“So we play a good mixture of 50's, 60's, 70's

ballads, rock and roll, country and even Irish.”

Today the Viscounts - Neville Wilkins

(trumpet); Christine Williams (vocals); Dave

Petrie (keyboards); Ray Harris (guitar);

Graeme Wallis (bass); John Wilson (drums) -

still perform at private functions and the

occasional public show.

‘Famous for their roasts!’
