on Thursday.

It is one of seven fire stations

to be built post -earthquake as

part of a $50 million project

announced under the National

Government.

Senior station officer Shane

O’Brien said the Anzac Fire

Station will house the first

“composite” station in the city,

with both a 24/7 career crew

and volunteer brigade.

Following the earthquakes, a

Rawhiti

Domain

sports

facility

goes to

hearing

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A 10-YEAR plan to open a $2.2

million sports facility in New

Brighton has taken a major step

forward.

A city council hearings panel

was scheduled to meet yesterday

which could give the green light

for the Eastern Community

Sports and Recreation Inc to

lease the land it needs in Rawhiti

Domain for the facility.

But a stumbling block to work

starting continues to be money.

The group has raised $675,000

for the project. Chairman Peter

Burley said yesterday he hoped

the project would start early next

year and would look how the

shortfall could be made up.

It plans to relay the current

tennis and netball courts with

astro-turf and a put a purposebuilt

canopy over them. The

canopy set to cost $1.3 million.

Mr Burley said he would be

“pretty stunned” if the hearing

panel did anything other than

support the facility.

IT LOOKS like there is overwhelming

support for the new sports facility in

Rawhiti Doman (see page 1).

The bulk of the submissions were in

favour.

And why would’t there be. The sports

complex is a no-brainer.

The project has been 10 years in the making and yesterday a

hearings panel was scheduled to meet (it was after our deadline)

to give the thumbs up or thumbs down for land to be leased for

the project.

But a stumbling continues to be money.

The Eastern Community Sports and Recreation Inc has raised

only a third of the $2.2 million they need.

They have an ambitous plan to start work early next year. Lets

hope it happens.

Landmark could be floodlit

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE ICONIC New Brighton clock

tower could be floodlit.

The city council is investigating

the possibility of illuminating the

historical landmark built in the

1930s.

The idea was suggested at a

to give the clock

tower “some life in

the evening” and

it is a good opportunity

to do it

“Lighting can just enliven and

make really beautiful statements of

The city council started work on

earthquake and historical damage

repairs of the clock tower last

month. They rae expected to be

completed by September.

City council staff are also following

up on controlling weeds

growing through the tiles under the

scaffolding surrounding the tower.

Plans to rebuild yacht club revealed

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PLANS FOR the long-awaited

rebuild of the Pleasant Point

Yacht Club have been revealed.

A new club house, toilets,

changing rooms, start box, committee

room and general storage

area will be included in the

buildings.

Two relocatable classrooms the

club purchased from Canterbury

University will be converted into

the facilities.

It is estimated to cost about

$600,000 which the club has

been fundraising for since 2012.

A new boat shed is also in the

plan, but the club is prioritising

the other two buildings and will

reassess how much additional

money may need to be raised in

the future.

The club has been without

proper facilities for more than

seven years after its old building

at Rat Island was destroyed in

the earthquakes.

In the interim, it has been

using five shipping containers as

makeshift facilities at South New

Brighton Park.

Club commodore Alastair

Burgess said once the buildings

are completed it will be a far

more attractive proposition for

The classrooms are due to arrive

at South New Brighton Park

at the end of August after the

foundations have been laid.

Sewerage, power and water

services have been installed and

are ready to be connected to the

classrooms when they arrive.

Yacht club committee

member Dan O’Sullivan said it

will be a luxury to have electricity

after going without for so

long.

The road to the

club’s rebuild has

been a long one,

with its temporary

facilities targeted

by a suspected arson

attack in 2016.

The club’s

Mr O’Sullivan said the locks

were alarmed and nothing was

“beefed-up” its security, it would

like members of the public to

keep an eye out for suspicious

activity.

Volunteers earn awards

PROVIDING MUCH needed

services to the community has

led to several residents and

organisations being recognised

for their volunteer work in the

eastern suburbs.

They were presented at the

Volunteer Canterbury volunteer

recognition awards last night.

Avebury House Community

Trust’s Andrea Grieve, of Richmond;

the Linwood Avenue

Corner Trust; Shirley Community

Trust’s Lynley Teague; The

Champion Centre’s Margaret Giertz,

of Burwood; and the Delta

Community Support Trust’s van

driving team in Richmond were

recognised.

The recipients were nominated

for the awards by a range of community

not-for-profit organisations.

A founding member in 2002,

Ms Grieve’s commitment to

Avebury House Community

Trust remains. She is involved

with a comprehensive stock-take

and cataloguing of the contents

of Avebury House’s history

room, ensuring the community

of Richmond’s past is preserved

for future generations.

The Delta Community Support

Trust van driving team was

recognised for ensuring rescued

food and bread is picked up, veggie

packs are delivered around

the city, and the vehicles are

always ready to go.

The Linwood Avenue Corner

Trust was described as developing

a “philosophy based on the

privilege of service”. It provides

free programmes to improve

health and provide companionship

for the lonely, isolated and

vulnerable.

Mrs Teague has been volunteering

at the Nail Care Clinic

which is a meeting place for

older people and those with disabilities.

Mrs Giertz volunteers her time

to care for pre-school siblings of

children who attend early intervention

sessions at The Champion

Centre. She was described

in her nomination as providing

“many hours of enjoyment”.

The awards are held annually

as part of National Volunteer

Week.

Bright new banners for Marian

Brightly coloured new banners can now be found at Marian

College. They include Maori kowhaiwhai and mamanu

Samoa versions of the Marian College logo. They were

designed by former student Naisina Lui, who is studying to

become a flight attendant. The signs were made by Simply

Signs and funded by the Marian Foundation.

•From page 1

The New Brighton Volunteer

Brigade continued to operate

out of their original premises on

Hawke St.

“We have been sharing a site,

not necessarily a building and

now we have all come together as

one sharing the same building,”

Mr O’Brien said.

He said in a major event

the station is built to be self -

“I can’t speak highly enough of

the building, just the lift it is going

A public open day for the new

station, built by Cook Brothers

next few weeks.

The station will house two

fire engine pumps, two support

vehicles to act as “troop carriers”

and a four -wheel-drive rural unit

“smoke chaser” designed to get to

inaccessible areas.

The building itself has LED

lighting with kitchen facilities

and a social area.

MORE THAN 500 people

calling for safety improvements

at a “dangerous” pedestrian

crossing on Stanmore Rd could

now lose it all together.

The city council has

recommended the crossing be

removed after determining it is

“not the correct type of facility”

for the location.

But city council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas said there are no firm

proposals to remove the zebra

crossing.

It comes as more than

500 signatures collected by

Richmond resident Gillian

Sheard was presented to the city

council infrastructure, transport

and environment committee on

Wednesday.

Ms Sheard was lobbying for

the pedestrian crossing to either

be raised or have traffic lights

placed at the Stanmore Rd/

Avalon St corner.

She also wanted the speed

on Stanmore Rd reduced from

50km/h to 30km/h.

However, a city council report

said changes to the crossing

do not rank highly against

competing priorities for limited

funds.

It said council staff have

investigated safety concerns

and the volume of pedestrians

observed is “well below the

required warrant to install a new

zebra crossing.”

Staff surveyed people using

the zebra crossing in August

with the highest observed

usage being 14 pedestrians per

hour.

The owner of Stanmore Rd’s

The Sideline Sports Bar, Nikki

Bradley, accused the city council

of trying to find a cheap way to

solve the problem.

It is “absolutely ridiculous,” she

said.

“The first death will be on

their hands . . . people are still

going to have to cross that road

and if there is not going to be a

crossing at all there is going

to be accidents galore,” she

said.

Miss Bradley said you don’t

solve a problem by “wiping it

out” and the recommendation

makes her “quite angry.”

She said near misses happen

“basically every day.”

But Richmond Residents

and Business Association

chairwoman Hayley Guglietta

said the petition has had the

opposite affect.

She said it will annoy a lot of

people including herself if the

crossing is taken away because

she lives close by and it will be

an “inconvenience.”

I will have to catch the 60 bus

take me 40-50min to get to New

Brighton and the same back with

Especially as there is a call for

people to support the shops in

New Brighton. It will also be

difficult for young mums with

prams and children.

roadworks at North Avon

Rd which continue to put

pressure on Richmond

businesses

Mr Burley said the state of the

courts was “not that bad”, but the

organisation wants a better quality

facility.

He said the only “caveat” is

Jane Ross – Thank you for

your article about Richmond

Village. Those businesses have

tried hard to keep the village

feel and it seems with no

compensation for their business

disruption. As the long-time

butcher who closed last time

said, they still had to pay their

full rent with no customers. The

city council has allowed the

works to proceed at the least cost

to it. The businesses definitely

should have been compensated.

The disruption has happened

repeatedly and for too long each

time. Protecting the livelihoods

of people after the earthquake is

just as important as repairing the

infrastructure.

City in a very positive vein.

It is imperative therefore that

this concept is promoted at every

juncture. Cycleways, improved

footpaths and pedestrian

crossings, while commendable,

are minimal and leave a void in

the overall status of required

cycleway upgrades along Dyers

Rd.

Traffic volume, inclusive of

trailers with often insecure loads,

is a factor that should have been

considered with the sanctioning

of the 2017 $3.2 million Dyers

have been inclusive of advanced,

separate cycleways, a sentiment

reiterated by city councillor Yani

Johanson.

Within this context,

submissions made by cyclists to

The original plans by NZTA

opposing Dyers Rd cycle lanes

should be redressed, reviewed

and overturned.

This is paramount for Dyers

Richmond to get new

housing complex

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

CONSTRUCTION is

under way for a new

housing complex in

Richmond.

Housing New Zealand is

building a 23-unit, three -

level complex to help meet

the one and two-bedroom

state housing demand

across the city.

The development, to

be located at Eveleyn

Couzins Pl, will comprise

of 23 one -bedroom

units on the side of the

site, which is due for

completion next month.

The other development

includes 14 two-bedroom

units across two storeys

and will be completed in

October.

• By Georgia O’Connor-

A PLAN to market

Stanmore Rd’s restaurants

and takeaways as an

international smorgasbord

could be the solution to

Richmond’s commercial

woes.

Resident Joanna Gould

has formed an idea to promote

Stanmore Rd’s food

businesses under a new

brand called Kai Town

which she hopes will create

an identity for the area.

She is hoping it will

address the number of

untenanted commercial

properties in the area. It

comes as the road works at

North Avon Rd continue

to put pressure on Richmond

businesses.

Mrs Gould said the

former Movieman Video

Shop, the Uniform Centre

and former Richmond

Electrical shop were three

obvious places where there

could be restaurants.

DEVELOPMENT: Housing New Zealand is

developing a 23 unit, three- level complex to be

located on Eveleyn Couzins Pl. ​

area manager Fraser

Benson said the new

warm, dry homes will

replace the six older homes

previously located on the

site.

“We expect a mix of

singles, couples and

families will live in this

complex,” he said.

Stanmore Rd has a

wide range of food outlets,

including Chillax Cafe &

Restaurant, Taj of India,

North Avon Fish Fry

and the Persian Kitchen.

Mrs Gould is planning to

discuss her ideas with the

newly-formed Richmond

Residents and Business

Association to get business

owners on board.

She will also consider

presenting her ideas to

the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board. The Kai Town idea

was prompted by her interest

in Richmond’s Maori

and British heritage.

She said it was about understanding

the area’s history

before learning about

the different nationalities

coming to live and work in

the area.

“There is more to Richmond

Village than just the

shops on Stanmore Rd; we

need help to tell our story,”

Mrs Gould said.

She is also calling for a

Idea to make Stanmore Rd

an international smorgasbord

Richmond Village website

and a master plan similar

to the Edgeware Village

master plan.

She suggested the plan

could include street lighting

with colourful flags of

the different nationalities

living in the community,

an outdoor seating/picnic

space and a “walkable

centre”.

City councillor Deon

Swiggs said he loves the

ideas and would welcome

Mrs Gould to present

them at the community

board.

“I am fully supportive

. . . but it is going to be

tricky because, economically,

there are some challenges,”

he said.

Richmond Residents

and Business Association

chairwoman Hayley

Guglietta said it is one of

many good ideas coming

from the community. The

association is interested in

establishing a heritage trail

for the area.

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.

Fresh air

in your home

Get the right

choice for winter

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.

Every year around about

now people start to plan

ahead for their winter

heating needs. High on

most people’s ‘must have’

list is a Heat Pump. They

have naturally become

extremely popular because

of their cheap heat and

“touch of a button”

convenience.

Heat pumps are

however a significant,

long term investment, so

it’s important to make the

right choice.

New Zealand properties tend to be of

unique design and have many features that

greatly affect their heating requirements.

Factors such as location, orientation to

the sun, room volume, heat loss surface

area, and room air flow characteristics, etc.

all play a major role. This means that the

heat pump that is right for your friend or

neighbour is not necessarily right for you.

Add to that the fact that all manufacturers

claim to have the best, quietest, most energy

efficient, and have a multitude of constantly

updating models; finding out which heat

pump is best is not so straightforward.

Getting the right heat pump for your

home is a combination of accurate

calculation of the space to be heated, taking

into account all property characteristic,

plus an up to date knowledge of the

performance specifications of all makes

and models available.

This is where the local company Heat

Pump Guys can help. They are fully

independent heat pump specialists, and are

accredited agents for all top brands. They

offer an obligation-free home survey and

completely unbiased advice on which heat

pump is best for you.

So if you are considering getting a

heat pump this year, give them a call on

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

thermaly-broken aluminium windows.

Had the money for central heating.

→ Hardest decision – forgoing a bath. Switching

Beaven’s ShadowClad spec for cedar.

→ Favourite feature - the textural fabric of our

home: glass, cedar, plywood, steel, concrete

Xbond and luxe loop pile carpet.

T

he firs time I woke up with a cold nose in my brand

new home, I wa shocked. How could this be? The

cool, calm, collected one and I had planned for our

home to be well insulated against Canterbury’s

cold winters. Turns out, not well enough. We’d

even a sured a we l-meaning friend we had ample

insulation (yes, Duncan, you were right). I’ve worked out where we

fe l short in hindsight. Our home was designed by highly respected

Christchurch architec the late Peter Beaven, for a magic little

Port Hill site, where he planned to live in with his wife Lesley.

Sadly Peter died before realising his plans. We bough them and

employed Archology in Sydney, where we were living a the time, to

prepare the construction drawings and specifications. Compared to

Australia, the R values for insulation would have looked high. Our

talented young builder, Sam McCarthy, would never have queried

the levels because they were standard practice around town. So it

wasn’t until we were living in the house and I consulted Council’s

eco design advisor Julie Vi lard about how we could warm it up that

we discovered, while we unwittingly thought we had exceeded New

Zealand standard, we had merely met Code. And that ain’t going to

cut it in our climate.

Fortunately Julie had plenty of ideas on how we could improve

the situation and we have easy acce s to our underfloor to top-up

the insulation. Julie Villard, an architect from France, is on a mi sion

to transform building best practice here and you can read abou the

groundbreaking idea she’s applied to her own brand new build on

page 20.

I’ve shared the highs and lows of building with the other home

builders and renovators I interviewed and, like Diane (page 36), would

relish doing it again. I wa struck by how all the home owner said

wha they most valued was the ability of their designer or builder to

“really listen” to their wants and needs. I was also impre sed by how

much Christchurch people love a good garage! We’ve got some ideas

for some top of their cla s cars to complement yours on page 81 and

how to quickly establish a lawn on page 72.

We review a l the lates trends in everyone’s favourite room –

the kitchen (page 48), and share an easy yet impressive recipe for

entertaining friends in your fabulous new home on page 77.

I hope Peter Beaven would be pleased with how the cool, calm,

co lected one and I realised his dream. Go chase yours people!

Building tips from the home owners plus expert home design advice

Speaking to the NZ Institute of Architects about ‘bespoke

architecture’ being a ‘minority pursuit’ not long before his death

Peter said “I am going to try to prove that it’s possible to build

modestly and cheaply with a little house for ourselves. It’s going to

be sustainable and it’s going to be beautiful and it’s going to be just

cheap – no more than an ordinary spec house. I’ l prove that it can

be done, and it might be the las thing I prove.”
