Plan for Brougham St bottleneck

NZTA moves

to ease

congestion

• By Julia Evans

ONE OF the city’s busiest roads

is set to have its congestion issues

addressed.

Brougham St “corridor improvements”

have been included

in the draft transport agency

investment proposal 2018-27

released by the New Zealand

Transport Agency.

About 44,000 vehicles,

including 5000

freight, use the

thoroughfare

from the Selwyn

district to

Lyttelton Port

each day.

“The

Brougham St,

Jim Harland

State Highway

76 project is

identified as a

proposed activity, which means

it will continue to be developed,

subject to its new alignment with

the Government policy statement

on land transport priorities,”

NZTA direction regional relationships

Jim Harland said.

The proposal includes a

budget of between $10

million-$100 million for the

upgrades to increase flow along

the street.

The work would be completed

before 2021, while a detailed

business case and design

would begin when the plan

was approved by Environment

Canterbury’s regional transport

committee before August 31.

The plan said NZTA will work

with partners, including the

city council and Selwyn District

Council, to “investigate appropriate

solutions” to congestion along

Brougham St to the Rolleston

Corridor, which connects Selwyn

to the Lyttelton Port.

“Doing so will improve customer

access between the south

of the city to Lyttelton Port

and help reduce congestion in

Christchurch’s south-western

suburbs,” the plan said.

It comes as last week’s Southern

View reported, Selwyn Mayor

Sam Broughton had raised

concerns about congestion on the

motorway during the city council’s

Long Term Plan hearings.

Mr Broughton said he anticipates

congestion will get worse

the longer the corridor is left as

it is.

“The southern end of the motorway

connecting to Brougham

St is a major cause of transport

delays to the wider travelling

public, which is expected to

get worse as time goes on,” Mr

CONGESTION:

Brougham St has

been identified as

in need of corridor

improvements by

NZTA.

HUNTER

Broughton said.

This was inevitable with the

expected population increases in

both Selwyn and Christchurch,

he said.

City council manager planning

and delivery transport

Lynette Ellis said it would work

with NZTA to “effectively and

efficiently” keep the transport

network running, including

Brougham St.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

from the reporter’s desk

IT’S ABOUT time big retailers did their part to tackle the global

issue of plastic waste.

Countdown Ferrymead will go plastic bag-free on Monday

(see page 3).

It is one of 10 Countdown stores making the move throughout

New Zealand.

The stores will be used to test the change and gather customer

feedback before further changes are made to all 182 stores.

Customers will have to take their own bags, buckets or boxes

to carry their shopping.

It may take a while to get used to, but habits can be changed

and soon enough we will learn to take our own bags.

It’s a great step in the right direction and I hope more businesses

will follow.

Supermarket goes plastic bag-free

• By Sarla Donovan

Kiri Hannifin

COUNTDOWN Ferrymead

will go plastic-bag free on

Monday.

It’s one of 10 supermarkets

nationwide the company has

chosen would be single-use plastic

bag-free by the start of June.

Customers at the Ferrymead

store will need to bring their

own “bags, or bucket or box

. . . whatever they want,” said

Countdown

general manager

corporate

affairs, Kiri

Hannifin.

Since it announced

its decision

to phase

out single-use

plastic carrier

bags last year, Countdown

customers had already reduced

their use of plastic bags by just

over 16 per cent, she said.

“We’re really heartened so

many of our customers are

already really committed to using

less plastic when they shop

with us. However, we know the

biggest barrier to change is to

get into a new habit of bringing

your own bags. We’re starting

to talk with customers in these

first 10 stores now and are really

looking forward to helping them

make the switch as easily as

possible.”

Countdown is moving to get

rid of the environmentallydamaging

bags in the 10 supermarkets

across the country by

Christmas.

The others are in Blenheim,

Auckland, Wellington, Gisborne,

Dargaville and Whanganui.

Selected stores represent a

range of sizes, checkout and

bag carousel layouts, cities and

smaller towns, said Ms Hannifin.

They would be used to test

to all 182 stores around New

Zealand.

“If (customers) get caught

short, our popular black reusable

bags are just $1. We’ll also

have other alternatives available

which you’ll see after May 21.”

What shoppers

are saying

Lisa Brignull,

of Mt

Pleasant:

“It is a great

idea that we

shall use

fewer plastic

bags with

less waste,

especially on the hills where I

run. It can only be a good thing

and yes, I shall use my own

bags.”

Jeremy

Smith, of

Ferrymead:

“I guess that it

is a good idea

as something

has to be

done to get

rid of the

plastic in the oceans. I usually

forget to bring my bags as I

usually don’t buy a lot, and

I am able to carry most of it.

Boxes of beer have handles

anyway.”

Eating well everyday

by Peter Gordon

Using easily sourced ingredients and simple methods, the Godfather

of fusion cooking Peter Gordon has created over 170 dishes that

demonstrate his passion for innovative flavours and textures in an

everyday setting.

From Chorizo on Tomato-rubbed Toast with Soft-boiled Egg to start

the day, via soups and pasta dishes such as the tempting and

comforting Creamy Leek, Red Lentil and Potato Soup or Cannelloni

with Mushrooms and Pork, to delicious dinners including the mouth

watering Braised Pork Belly with Shallots, Orange and Cardamom and

Cod Poached in Creamy Leeks, Ginger and Saffron, all finished off with

treats that include Spiced Pumpkin, Fig, Pinenut and Gingernut Tart.

The sections, including breakfast and brunch, light meals and salads,

pasta, rice and noodles, tea trolley and desserts, are complemented by

sumptuous photography from Manja Wachsmuth, making this book

the stylish answer to eating well, every day.

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart

by Holly ringland

The most enchanting debut novel of 2018, this is an irresistible, deeply moving and

romantic story of a young girl, daughter of an abusive father, who has to learn the hard way

that she can break the patterns of the past, live on her own terms and find her own strength.

After her family suffers a tragedy, nine-year-old Alice Hart is forced to leave her idyllic seaside

home. She is taken in by her grandmother, June, a flower farmer who raises Alice on the

language of Australian native flowers, a way to say the things that are too hard to speak.

Under the watchful eye of June and the women who run the farm, Alice settles, but grows

up increasingly frustrated by how little she knows of her family’s story. In her early twenties,

Alice’s life is thrown into upheaval again when she suffers devastating betrayal and loss.

Desperate to outrun grief, Alice flees to the dramatically beautiful central Australian desert. In

this otherworldly landscape Alice thinks she has found solace, until she meets a charismatic

and ultimately dangerous man.

Spanning two decades, set between sugar cane fields by the sea, a native Australian flower

farm, and a celestial crater in the central desert, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart follows Alice’s

unforgettable journey, as she learns that the most powerful story she will ever possess is

her own.

Hunting El Chapo:

Taking Down the World’s Most-Wanted Drug Lord

by Andrew Hogan, douglas Century

This is the incredible story of D.E.A. Special Agent Andrew Hogan’s seven-year-long

chase to capture El Chapo, a multibillionaire drug-lord and escape-artist posing as

a Mexican Robin Hood, who in reality was a brutal sociopath responsible for the

murders of thousands. His greedy campaign to take over his rivals’ territories resulted

in an unprecedented war with a body count of over 100,000.

This intimate thriller tells how Hogan single-mindedly and methodically climbed the

ladder within the hierarchy of the Sinaloa Cartel – the world’s wealthiest and most

powerful drug-trafficking organization – by creating one of the most sophisticated

undercover operations in the history of the D.E.A. From infiltrating Chapo’s inner circle

to leading a white-knuckle manhunt with an elite brigade of Mexican Marines, Hogan

left no stone unturned in his hunt for the world’s most powerful drug kingpin.

Dictatorland: The Men Who Stole Africa

by Paul Kenyon

The dictator who grew so rich on his country’s cocoa crop that he built a 35-storeyhigh

basilica in the jungles of the Ivory Coast. The austere, incorruptible leader who

has shut Eritrea off from the world in a permanent state of war and conscripted every

adult into the armed forces. In Equatorial Guinea, the paranoid despot who thought

Hitler was the saviour of Africa and waged a relentless campaign of terror against

his own people. The Libyan army officer who authored a new work of political

philosophy, The Green Book, and lived in a tent with a harem of female soldiers,

running his country like a mafia family business.

And behind these almost incredible stories of fantastic violence and excess lie the

dark secrets of Western greed and complicity, the insatiable taste for chocolate,

oil, diamonds and gold that have encouraged dictators to rule with an iron hand,

siphoning off their share of the action into mansions in Paris and banks in Zurich and

keeping their people in dire poverty.

School decision fuels debate

• By Sarla Donovan

THE ARM-WRESTLE over a

new site for Redcliffs School has

heated up again.

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Minister Megan Woods

has given approval for changes

to the District Plan, allowing the

school to be built on Redcliffs

Park.

Friends of

Redcliffs Park

spokesman

Chris Doudney

said the minister

had got it

wrong.

“I suspect the

Kate

Fidler

information

she was given

was limited and

she would have

been limited

as to what she

could base her

decision on.

Very much the

same as the

community

board hearing

last August

where our own submission

couldn’t be received or discussed

because the scope of the

argument was limited to considering

the school on the park.”

He said they wanted to get

more information about the

basis for the minister’s decision.

For seven years the school has

been operating from the Van

Asch campus in Sumner, after

earthquake-generated rockfall

at its former site.

In March 2015 the Government

proposed the school’s closure

but following community

outcry, it agreed in June 2016 to

return the school to Redcliffs –

provided it be established on a

different site.

Deputy principal Kate Mc-

Clelland was “thrilled” the

school will be rebuilt at Redcliffs

Park.

Said Ms McClelland: “After

seven years we’re very excited to

be finally able to return to our

home in Redcliffs. After all the

work that’s been done working

towards this day, we’re thrilled.”

Families and pupils were

notified yesterday morning,

shortly after the decision was

announced.

Board of trustees chairman

Darren Fidler was “happy and

relieved” at the news.

“We can finally get back. It’s

been a long seven years.”

He said it had been an open

and transparent process.

“The minister put out all the

information that she used to

inform her decision so the due

process has been followed . . .

we’re looking forward to getting

back to the core business of

educating kids. That’s all we’ve

ever wanted to do and this has

been a massive distraction from

that.”

Cashmere High student

gets boost to achieve goals

SCHOOLS

SOUTHERN VIEW

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

CASHMERE HIGH School

student Montana Brown’s desire

to try new things has her on

the path to representing New

Zealand in wheelchair racing.

The talented 15-year-old paraathlete,

who has cerebral palsy

and spastic diplegia, has recently

fallen in love with the sport and

now dedicates a lot of her spare

time to training.

Already an avid target shooter

and boccia player, it is her wheelchair

racing which is starting to

turn heads.

Montana, who lives in Lincoln,

has been awarded a Gold Heart

Scholarship from children’s charity,

Variety, worth up to the value

of $5000.

Having only taken up the sport

in October, Montana has already

competed at the Halberg Junior

Disability Games, where she

finished third in the 50m race

and second in both the 100m and

200m races.

Montana is currently using a

borrowed wheelchair from ParaFed

Canterbury, which is not

quite right for her size.

FAST TRACK: Cashmere High School’s Montana Brown has

taken to wheelchair racing quickly and has been awarded a

scholarship from Variety to continue her progression.

She will be using this funding

to assist in the purchase of a

purpose-built wheelchair of her

own.

“I really love the sport,” she

says. “When I race, it’s a lot of

effort through my arms and I

often come back with big bruises

but that’s okay because they look

really cool.

Montana credits both ParaFed

Canterbury and Cashmere High

School’s conductive education

programme for allowing her

to have so many sporting

opportunities. Conductive

education is an educational

system developed in Hungary in

the 1940s.

Its objective is to enable

physically disabled and multidisabled

individuals to actively

participate in society by means of

intensive and systematic training

and practice.

Montana said she would

like to represent New Zealand

in the sprint distances of

wheelchair racing at both the

Commonwealth Games and

Paralympics one day soon.

“Having watched the racing

at the Commonwealth Games

(earlier this year), it’s motivated

me to keep training hard and

keep improving.

centrally located wood burner easily warming the whole area. A separate laundry

room is adjacent to the kitchen and opens directly outdoors. There are three

bedrooms and a bathroom with full sized bath and shower above. Light interior

Emily Carswell is Kip McGrath Barrington’s star student for April. Emily attends

Thorrington School where she is in year 6. Her tutor Ashleigh Probert said Emily

had worked hard to earn the award and was highly deserving. “She has not

given up trying when it has been hard, or when she’s been tired. She has also

consistently completed her homework and has shown excellent focus in class.

We are all very proud of her wonderful progress.” ​

Organisation

receives

boost from

engineering firm

THE CANTERBURY Down

Syndrome Association has

received a boost of $12,420 from

structural engineering firm

Constructure.

To celebrate its 10th anniversary,

Constructure launched a

Givealittle page in April, inviting

its customers to donate to a good

cause as an ‘unorthodox birthday

present.’

The firm donated $10,000 and

it’s clients donated $2420.

Constructure founder Cory Bedford

said he was excited that his

clients got into the spirit.

“I really want to thank all our

customers for their generosity that

will make a big difference for a

small local charity like the CDSA.”

The CDSA provides support,

education, and advocacy to its

members, their families and wider

community.

Said CDCA chairwoman Diane

Mulholland: “We are just overwhelmed

and grateful that this

amazing gift got even bigger.”

Over the past decade, Constructure

has expanded to 25 staff

members across its Christchurch

and Auckland offices.

The $10,000 gift was not chosen

randomly but symbolises the

target of 10,000 projects the Constructure

team wanted to complete

by the anniversary date.

October. She has been in early childhood

management for over seven years and has

three children of her own. Along with the

holistic, individualised care. They engage

higher teacher-to-child ratios to allow better

team of professional educators and nurturers

who are highly trained and passionate about

creating happy experiences.

The setting is warm and home-like in

nature while the playground and indoor

environment have been designed to allow

children to safely explore and learn with

confidence. This is supported by a strong

curriculum designed for active and exciting

play.

With 10 spaces in their nursery, and 23

spaces in their preschool, the centre provides

fluidity of care allows children to form close

bonds while families enjoy peace of mind.

An extensive range of educational, sporting and

A supportive all-girl learning environment

encourages girls to take risks without

fear of failure and develops their love of

learning. They become confident, compassionate,

articulate and determined young

women who have the values, skills, and

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 -

8 is on the growth of the developing girl

encompassing intellectual, social, physical,

emotional, and cultural needs.

Selwyn House is committed to providing

The combination of the International

Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme

(PYP) and our future-focused STEAM and

Mechatronics curriculum ensures girls are

equipped to face a continually changing

world with confidence and enthusiasm.

We focus on instilling strong foundations

which can be successfully built upon.

Core learning in reading, writing and

mathematics is a priority. Specialist programmes

in Art, Creative Writing, Leadership,

Mechatronics, Music, Performing

Arts, Physical Education, Science, Spanish

and Swimming play key roles to further

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

to secondary school.

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.

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

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

SOUTHERN VIEW

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.

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

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!’

Billy Vaughan, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Gene
