AFTER witnessing generations

of changes in the city and

leading the way in adapting to

those changes, Riccarton’s St

Ninian’s church is becoming a

centenarian.

in Riccarton, which is set to celebrate a 100 years.

St Ninian’s to celebrate centenarian

The Presbyterian church was

established in June 1918 on land

gifted by the Deans family.

Said St Ninian’s clerks Pam

McKechie and Barbara Chapman:

“I think probably in the

wider Presbyterian church we’re

recognised for what we are but

we’re not everybody’s cup of

tea,” Mrs Chapman said.

And as the city evolved, the

new church-goers reflected the

new city. Mrs McKechie said the

changes were for the better.

“Over the years, we’ve also

hopped on the bandwagon on

things like the nuclear-free

movement, gay rights, women’s

rights and environmental rights.

“It’s okay to question what’s

said and we don’t all believe the

exact the same things of course,”

Mrs McKechie said.

Decision

on future

of Paterson

House to

be made

today

• By Anan Zaki

A DECISION over the future

use of the historic Paterson

House in Halswell will be made

today.

The council-owned category

two heritage listed villa at

Halswell Quarry Park is

being sought for lease by

charitable organisation,

Conservation Volunteers New

Zealand.

The city council said the

organisation would use the

91-year-old stone villa as shortterm

accommodation for its

volunteers working on city

council projects such as the Port

Hills fire recovery.

The decision to grant a lease

to CVNZ or run a tender

would be made by the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board.

The house was named after

the quarry’s first manager Ned

Paterson, but now formed part

of the quarry park.

Following the earthquakes,

the city council repaired the

house to suit residential use.

from the reporter’s desk

As we age, keeping up with the times can be difficult and St

Ninian’s in Riccarton has been adapting to those changes for a

100 years.

Whether it is championing minorities’ rights, or providing a

communal space for newcomers to the city, St Ninian’s deserves

a big pat on the back for reaching a huge milestone.

Make sure you pop by the church on Queen’s Birthday weekend

to witness a bit of history.

Congratulations are also in order to Halswell brothers Celyn

and Ieuan Edwards, who were among 13 Kiwis to receive Gold

Spate of car break-ins in Halswell

• By Anan Zaki

POLICE HAVE called on

Halswell residents to be vigilant

following a spike in car breakins.

Six people reported break-ins

in the suburb on Monday last

week.

Inspector Glenn Nalder said

police were concerned about the

recent activity in Halswell and

were taking it seriously.

“In response to this, police are

directing more

patrols to the

area and are

looking into

whether there

are links with

any of these

burglaries.

“We are

Glenn Nalder

focused on trying

to prevent

crime in our communities and

use a number of methods to do

so,” he said.

Inspector Nalder said people

needed to “do what they can” to

protect themselves.

“It is also incredibly important

that people report it to police as

soon as possible if they become a

victim of burglary.

“It is important for us to know

what is occurring, even the

smallest piece of information

may assist us in solving a bigger

crime trend,” Inspector Nalder

said.

One of the six victims, Abbie

Phillips, lost a number of items

from her car, including a spare

tyre, and an electronic cigarette.

“The most unfortunate one and

probably not worth a lot to others

was my gel nail polishes because I

do that as a part-time job.

“I’ve accumulated about $500

worth of stuff and they were all

stolen from the boot of my car,”

Ms Phillips said.

This was the second time in

six months that her car was

targeted in the suburb.

“It’s pretty gutting really,” Ms

Phillips said.

She said the burglaries made

her fear for her safety and the

safety of her partner and young

son.

“It does make you feel a

bit uneasy, it’s such a great

neighbourhood and it’s such a

shame that someone is going

around and doing this,” Ms

Phillips said.

In Brief

MOTORWAY DETOUR

Southbound traffic on the

Christchurch Southern Motorway

has been switched on to a

temporary diversion road at the

Hornby end. This is part of the

construction of the second stage of

the motorway.

TOWER PAINTED

Addington’s historic water tower is

sporting its original colour scheme

for the first time in decades. The

21.9m tower was damaged in

the earthquakes but has recently

been repaired, strengthened and

given a fresh coat of paint. “In

recent times the tower has been

painted either grey or black but we

knew that when it was originally

built in 1883 it was painted in

Victorian colours,’’ Christchurch

City Council heritage programme

manager Richie Moyle said.

PARK TOILET DECISION

Today the Halswell-Hornby-

Park’s proposed public toilet.

The park, on Peverel St, currently

has no toilet. Construction is

scheduled to start on the toilet

next month, and it’s expected it

will be completed in July. The city

council staff recommendation is

to approve the plan.

St Ninian’s turning 100

MILESTONE: The celebration to mark 100 years of St Ninian’s

will be held over Queen’s Birthday weekend.

•From page 1

The church building today is

also different to how it was when

St Ninian’s opened in 1918.

The original church was in an

adjacent hall, and services were

held there until the present day

stone building was built in 1926.

The new building was the first

stone Presbyterian church in

Christchurch, Mrs McKechie

said.

Remarkably, the stone building

was left relatively unscathed in

the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

“The building is actually

concrete with a stone veneer;

the concrete structure saved the

church,” Mrs McKechie said.

“We didn’t even realise that

because the people who knew are

no longer about, and when the

engineers discovered that it was

a big surprise to us,” Mrs Chapman

said.

The church continued to attract

visitors who had a special

connection to the place, she said.

“It’s not unusual for somebody

to wander in during the week

and say ‘I was married here’,

there were a lot of weddings in

earlier times,” Mrs Chapman

said.

Celebrations for the 100th

anniversary will be held over

Queen’s Birthday weekend.

“We’re having a social get together

on June 2 at 4pm. We will

then have a communion service

on Sunday morning, and before

we move onto lunch, we will have

a few speeches,” Mrs Chapman

said.

There would also be a display

of photos and memorabilia.

“We’ve got four former ministers

coming, which will be very

nice,” Reverend Yvonne Smith

said. As for the future of

the church, the trio are

confident that newcomers to

the church would keep the

church going.

“The new people to the

church have reflected the

multicultural nature of the

area and have young children

and it’s like a village for the

families,” Rev Smith said.

Who decides where

it’s safe to swim?

Jenny Webster-Brown

CANTERBURY University

is set to host a public lecture

on Thursday detailing the

swimability of the country’s

waterways.

The lecture, titled To swim

or not to swim? That is the

question… will be presented by

Canterbury University water

resource management professor

Jenny Webster-Brown.

The event would focus on

helping the public understand

Government regulations around

safe swimming areas, she said.

The messages from the Government

about safe swimming

were “confusing”, Prof Webster-

Brown said.

“So we want to untangle a lot

of that information so that they

have the confidence to jump in

the water when they want to in

the middle of summer,” she said.

It was important to inform the

public because the regulations

around what constituted a safe

swimming site changed three

years ago, the professor said.

“We’re sort of in a transition

period at the moment of getting

the public up to speed where they

can find the right information

about whether or not it is safe to

swim in their favourite swimming

hole,” Prof Webster-Brown

said.

Regional councils and other

organisations had pathways to

provide information about the

quality of waterways, but what

that information meant was not

widely available, she said.

Anybody interested in the

safety of swimming sites were

welcome to attend the lecture,

Prof Webster-Brown said.

“The talk is very much geared

to an audience without that technical

knowledge, so it should be

an easy learning experience for

anyone who’s here,” she said.

The lecture will be held oat

7pm in the C Block lecture

theatre at the university’s Ilam

campus.

Hornby store ditches plastic bags

• By Anan Zaki

FIRST GROCERY stores, and

now home improvement stores –

the humble plastic shopping bag

is being withdrawn.

Mitre 10 MEGA Hornby

announced last week that from

the beginning of July, it would

ditch plastic bags from checkouts,

joining others across the country.

Mitre 10 and Mitre 10 MEGA

owner-operators unanimously

voted in favour of removing

plastic bags at checkouts.

From July, shoppers would need

to either take their own bags, buy

a reusable bag or use other means

to transport their goods.

Mitre 10 general manager for

marketing Jules Lloyd-Jones said

the decision to withdraw the

single use item was easy.

•From page 1

Under the proposal, CVNZ

would also work with the city

council to source and manage

volunteers for projects and

would maintain the grounds

around Paterson House.

The city council said it could

negotiate a rent of between $1000

and $4000 per annum with the

organisation.

“As the country’s biggest

home improvement retailer,

we take our duty to be socially

responsible seriously and always

strive to do the right thing by our

customers, communities and the

environment,” she said.

The company admitted some

customers may need to adjust

when the changes are rolled out.

“Plastic bags have become

so ingrained into our way

of shopping that it’s quite a

significant mind-shift to get into

the routine of bringing your own

bag.

“Providing customers with a

positive experience is right at

the top of our agenda so we’ll

be talking a lot about the move

ahead over the next few weeks

both in store and publicly,” Ms

Lloyd-Jones said.

A second option for Paterson

House was to run an open tender

process to determine the lessee.

Should the house be tenanted,

the city council said it would

not “exclude or substantially

interfere with the public’s access

to Halswell Quarry Park.

But the house itself would

not be open to the public once

leased.

Fire rages, homes at risk

THE CANTERBURY Down

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

its clients donated $2420.

Constructure founder Cory

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.”

The $10,000 gift was not

chosen randomly but symbolises

Handling changes

Ilam and

Upper

Riccarton

Residents

Association

chair Phil

McGoldrick

wants people

to engage in

more public discussion

CHRISTCHURCH, perhaps

more than any other city in

New Zealand, is undergoing

enormous change presently

and I believe that it is simply an

inkling of things to come.

Our council and local bodies

face more consequential issues

than they ever have in the past

and it is imperative they are

equipped to handle adeptly these

enormous challenges.

Roading changes happening

and being mooted throughout

the city are, and understandably

so, drastic so we all need

to be proactive rather than wait

disinterestedly until it’s done and

then complain in vain.

For example, I have just

viewed the proposed changes

to Cranford St to accommodate

the anticipated impact of the

Northern Corridor. Auckland’s

$23 billion transport plan will

impose fuel taxes and certain

road tolls on all Aucklanders,

and that’s causing massive

rumblings in our largest city. But

we here are not immune from

such changes, our council have

expressed a desire to be able to

impose similar taxes as well as

rates on water – scary stuff.

So we must be on guard and

vitally interested lest your hardearned

incomes are further

eroded. “So what can I do?” I

hear you ask.

The first step may be to join

your local residents association.

We have seen a growing interest

in Ilam, Upper Riccarton affairs

and our membership numbers

have swelled. But still not sufficiently

and I would encourage

all of our residents to attend our

next annual general meeting on

June 6 in the Wheki Building at

the Dovedale University Campus

starting at 7pm.

councillor Aaron Keown’s

comments comparing

Banks Peninsula to

“expensive” Merivale wives

Helen Neni Dobson – For

goodness sake. Lighten up and

get over yourselves. We have lost

the will to laugh at ourselves. A

sure sign that we are constantly

trying to find someone else to

blame for our shortcomings.

Matt Cuthill – How about

concentrating on fixing the

roads, building a stadium, a

proper metro sports facility,

and getting rid of the eyesores

including the Cathedral?

Heather Knox – Wow, what

an appalling, insulting comment

to make about women. Stereotypical

rubbish and makes the

women sound like possessions

that have been bought.

Pete Roberts – So everybody

(including the women

there) has a good laugh, and

even the mayor has a laugh and

can’t bring herself to tell him to

pull his head in because it was

a stupid, offensive thing to say,

and then she basically said it was

okay to say it in another environment,

just not there.

Natasha Layton – CCC

“lighten the mood.”

Readers react on Mayor

Lianne Dalziel’s bid to get

Inland Revenue staff to

stop illegally parking in

Russley

Rob Eder – It all falls back

to the council or developers.

When these business parks are

built there’s never enough parks

for the people who work there.

Same as the one on Cranford St

where there are cars parked up

and down the road sides. When

these business parks are first

built there should be a requirement

to provide car parks off the

street for the number of people

who work there. If they can’t

then don’t allow them to be built

so big.

Allie Moreland – I worked

in that business park for a

few years and parking was a

nightmare for staff. I lived across

town with a child to drop off

so didn’t have time to spend

waiting around for a bus to then

to get to work (and bus routes

didn’t suit). If I couldn’t get a

park at a reasonable distance I

parked in the restricted parking

and moved my car every break

so I didn’t break the restrictions.

Hayley Lyel – Worked at

that business park for a year and

was pregnant with twins with

a bad disc problem in my back.

I wasn’t allowed to park on-site

so I literally “waddled” two

blocks to get to work in the end.

The people to blame here are

the business park owners who

allowed this to be built without

sufficient parking for staff. I feel

for the residents it must be awful

but it was the worst decision to

move a call centre there with

hundreds of staff plus the other

businesses.

Swimming brothers earn scholarships

Grant to help

them reach

full potential

• By Jacob Page

HALSWELL BROTHERS Celyn

and Ieuan Edwards are among

the 13 New Zealanders named

Gold Hearts scholars.

Both are talented swimmers

and the accolade from the

children’s charity, Variety, means

they will both receive up to

$5000 of funding to help them

reach their full potential in the

pool.

The brothers train at the

Selwyn Swim Club. Celyn, 17,

competed at the Commonwealth

Games this year, earning personal

bests in the individual

medley.

“It was certainly a new experience

for me, usually I only have

400 people in the stands supporting

us so to have 10,000 was

something else,” Celyn said.

He says his younger brother is

showing plenty of promise.

“He’s beating me in a few races

now and seems to be heading on

the right track.”

Celyn holds 23 New Zealand

records and one Oceania record.

He swam at the Berlin IDM meet

and the Australian Swimming

camps, provided by Paraswimming

New Zealand and the

Selwyn Swim Club. He will also

use the funds to assist in getting

him to upcoming meets, both in

New Zealand and overseas, and

on related equipment costs.

Ieuan, 15, has his sights set on

competing at the 2022 Commonwealth

Games, followed by the

2024 Paralympic Games.

He is also looking to compete

in the New Zealand short course

SPORTS

champs and the New Zealand

Open, as well as attend development

camps hosted by Paraswimming

New Zealand and

the Selwyn Swim Club – each

of which would not be possible

without the Gold Heart Scholarship.

Ieuan holds one New Zealand

record, has won medals at

previous New Zealand short

course championships and New

Zealand Open meets, and is the

joint holder of the 2015 Halberg

Junior Disability Games overall

best athlete,

“My older brother has shown

me that I can attain my goals

because he has done them,”

Ieuan says.

Ieuan wants to represent New

Zealand in the middle-distance

freestyle events.

The scholarship money will

help pay for both swimmers to

attend national training camps

and short course meets.

“He’s a very relaxed older

brother and he gives me a lot of

good advice,” Ieuan said.

He is currently striving to

close the gap between his swim

times and those of the current

New Zealand swim team who

are some five years older than

him.

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 lipservice

to the

idea, as not a lot

of thought has been put into the

development of the grade.

She said the CRFU had put

Tamara and Naia

Toaolamai-Holden

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’ 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.”

Russley golfers to take on world’s best

SPORTS

• By Gordon Findlater

Juliana Hung and Hiroki Miya

from the Russley club will tee

off with the New Zealand team

at the junior golf World Cup in

Japan next month.

They will join Christchurch

club golfer Tom Parker 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.

Miya, who will be part of

the four-strong boys team, 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.

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

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

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.

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.”

An extensive range of educational, sporting and

cultural opportunities are offered for girls in Years 1 - 8.

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

a continuum of international education.

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

and are prepared for a successful transition

to secondary school.

Selwyn House’s nurturing environment is

apparent in all aspects of the school. In our

modern and safe, family-oriented Boarding

House, girls are supported by dedicated

staff and tutors. Girls from across

New Zealand and internationally fondly

call the Boarding House, their ‘home away

from home’ and easily form a sisterhood

with others.

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

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.

source it from one of the other branches in

the nationwide BE Group, Richard says. BE

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

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

WESTERN 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.

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.
