THE ST Andrew’s College

preparatory first XI hockey

team had the chance to learn

some tips and tricks from

former Black Sticks star Gemma

McCaw.

McCaw played 246 games for

New Zealand scoring 71 goals

since 2008.

McCaw inspires St Andrew’s first XI

The 28-year-old spoke to

the students for 30min

about perseverance and

success and answered any

questions.

She also ran a coaching

and skills session on the school

turf.

The opportunity came about

when a parent won an auction

for McCaw’s time at the Chalky

Carr Trust fundraising dinner,

of which McCaw is the patron.

She spoke to the team about

the importance of looking

within yourself, giving 100 per

cent and never giving up on

your dreams.

She stressed the importance

of staying focused on school

work as well as the need for a

career after sport.

The team will be travelling to

the AIMS Games in Tauranga

in September.

They hope to place in the top

five at that event.

The team currently play in

division two in the Canterbury

Hockey Kwik Sticks 11-aside

competition.

They currently sit at the top of

Consent

sought

to build

Belfast

shopping

centre

• By Sophie Cornish

THE FIRST stage of a commercial

centre in Belfast may soon get the

green light after almost 20 years of

planning.

Belfast Village Centre Ltd has

applied for a land use consent to

develop a commercial centre on

Main North Rd, near the corner of

Johns Rd.

The 11,295 sq m proposal includes

a supermarket as the key anchor

tenant and several retail, food and

office spaces.

A city council spokeswoman said

the consent is still being processed

and no decision has been made yet.

Planning for the site dates back

to the early 2000s when a sequence

of Environment Court cases began

between Apple Fields Ltd, the city

council and Environment Canterbury

as to the zoning of the land.

The application covers stage one

of the development.

Future stages, which will involve

separate consent applications, are

anticipated to include community

facilities such as a health care and

child care centre. •Turn to page 4

CHRISTCHURCH continues to grow.

Our front page article today reveals more

commercial development is planned in

the north-west, this one near the corner of

Main North Rd and Johns Rd.

It comes on the back of major roading changes to the area and

fast residential growth. People mean money and where there’s

people and money, business sets up.

There’s never been any rocket science in that.

The Belfast plan includes a supermarket as the key anchor tenant

– no surprises there – and retail and food outlets.

It was first mooted 20 years ago by the late Tom Kain, of horse

racing and Apple Fields fame, and his wife Tessa. She is behind

the latest application.

Rats invade park in St Albans

• By Sophie Cornish

RATS HAVE taken up

residence in Abberley Park,

St Albans, threatening the

monarch butterfly and fantail

populations.

Traps have been set to rid the

park of rats. Friends of Abberley

Park group member Patricia

Wallace said butterfly numbers

had been noticeably dwindling.

“When concerns were raised

that rats might be eating

butterflies in the trees at night, it

immediately spiked our interest.

We also have quite a lot of

fantails and we know rats eat the

eggs and fledglings of our native

birds like these,” she said.

City council manager

community parks Al Hardy said

while no decisions have been

made in relation to rat control,

cameras, traps and a small

number of mice and rat traps

have shown evidence of rats in

the park.

Only one rat nest has been

found so far, after a dog had a

particular interest with one tree.

“We shook the trees and

we saw rats running in the

branches,” said Ms Wallace.

Ms Wallace is calling on

any volunteers who could help

to reduce the problem, and is

urging the public to report any

information if they see rats in

the park.

She said all parties involved

want to be careful about what

sort of traps that are set.

“Because it’s a public park, it’s

bounded by domestic buildings

which will probably have cats

and dogs and there are children,

too, who enjoy the park, too, so

we can’t be having any poison

baits.” She believes the number

of rats in Christchurch has

increased since the earthquakes.

“There is still an awful lot

of buildings in demolition or

rebuild states in St Albans.”

‘We’re optimistic that the

new traps might make a big

difference and we are asking

people to notify us if they see

any rat nests in the park,” she

said.

New bid for Edgeware Pool funding

• By Sophie Cornish

A GIVE-A-LITTLE campaign

was set to be launched yesterday

in a bid to begin fundraising for

the new Edgeware Pool.

The pool has a budget of $5

million which will see an 25m

outdoor pool and a 14m indoor

pool.

A launch event to unveil a

new logo and the fundraising

campaign was set to be held

yesterday at the old pool

entrance on Edgeware Rd.

One of the longest members

of the St Albans Swim Club

and president for many years,

Brian Gardner, attended the

launch, along with Christchurch

Central MP Duncan Webb,

city councillors, Papanui-Innes

Community Board members

and other supporters from the

community.

Nor’West News released plans

by Apollo Designs, who designed

the new QE II, for the pool in

April.

The complex will have no

operating cost for ratepayers as it

is an entirely community-driven

project

Pool spokesman Paul

Somerville said the support from

design agency ‘imagic’ for the

logo provided a professional edge

to the important part of the pool

project.

“Raising money is obviously

key to the success of getting

Edgeware Pool open. We have a

much smaller budget than other

proposed pool projects around

the city. However, it’s still a

significant amount of money.”

“We have already raised

more than $150,000 to fund the

project to this point, as well as

an equivalent amount in probono

services and consultancy

fees which was needed to get

the resource consent. We are

extremely grateful. And now

imagic is doing this pro bono

which is extraordinary,” said Mr

Somerville.

Imagic account director Tim

Thomas said the agency feels

particularly excited about being

involved in the project as it is not

far from where the new pool will

be located.

“We are on Colombo St, on the

Edgeware side of Bealey Ave, just

down the road from where the

new pool will be. We are looking

forward to popping up the road

for a swim at lunchtimes,” he

said.

Mr Somerville believes there’s

a sense that a new pool on

the original site will heal the

hurt which resulted from city

council closing and subsequently

bulldozing the pool more than

a decade ago. “The original

Edgeware pool was built in

1934 after a major fundraising

drive by locals and was run by

the St Albans Swim Club, until

the city council took over its

management in 2002. The rest

they say, is history and with so

many pools in schools no longer

operating, the importance of

exercise (and access to facilities),

and the number of young people

who can’t swim, we believe the

need for this facility grows every

year,” said Mr Somerville.

Kittens keep stretch classes purring

CAT RESCUE Christchurch has

teamed up with the Altitude Pole

stretch classes to the city.

The two 90min stretch

due to the promise of cuddles

class.

a one-off, but a second class was

added to cope with the hugely

positive response from the public.

“Everyone was basically just in

awe,” she said.

Miss Andersen, who lives in

Parklands, said it was great to be

able to do something good for

the kittens, as well as the class

participants.

As a non-profit organisation,

CRC uses its fundraised money

to pay for the medical bills of the

cats it rescues.

CRC volunteer Michelle Fitz

Patrick said because the organisation

does not have a centre, there

is normally nowhere for people to

go and see the cats available for

adoption.

“This brings them all out for

people to actually see . . . and they

are all on Trade Me waiting to be

adopted”

The first two classes raised

$800 for CRC and inspired

several people to sign up as volunteers.

Miss Andersen said the classes

also resulted in two kittens being

adopted. She said as a cat lover, it

was difficult to resist taking one

home.

She thinks there will be a

demand for more kitten stretch

classes in the future, but it would

involve a lot of organisation to fit

them around the studio’s already

full schedule.

A Hundred

Stories of Hope

and Healing

A one night only event in Christchurch

In May 2009, nationally acclaimed interior designer Hayley Brown was

diagnosed with breast cancer. She quit her career of 25 years to find some

solution that didn’t include chemo, radiation or surgery. Together with her

partner, nutritionist and high performance coach Todd Balfour, she travelled

the world looking for better ways of dealing with cancer.

Journeying through Australia, Bali, Spain and finally landing in the USA. Hayley

had Hyperthermia in LA for just 14 weeks and her 5cm tumour disintegrated

completely. She was cleared of cancer using a PET scan in July 2010.

In May 2013 the cancer came back with a vengeance, chances of survival

looked slim. Over the duration of her illness, Hayley lost everything, her health,

her home, her career - all her money had been used up in the fight to stay

alive. She was now dying and in debt. “I was given a round of chemo to subdue

the tumour that had grown out through my skin. I never had any surgery - it

was potentially life threatening so I turned it down. I was discharged and the

oncologist said that she would ‘manage me forward’ (till I died).”

“But I wasn’t thinking about dying, I was thinking about living and wanting to

help others…” In 2014, despite apparently having limited time, Hayley and Todd

began a new venture called “Health Evolution” on the Kāpiti Coast.

“Not knowing how long I was going to be around, I took on a month-to-month

lease in a commercial building. That was five years ago. To the amazement of

oncology, and the landlord, I am still alive and my cancer is in remission.”

So what happened? What changed the game?

At Heath Evolution, Hayley and Todd offer Pulsed Electromagnetic field therapy

(PEMF) and mild Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy (HBOT) treatments based on

cutting-edge German protocols.

Both modalities have far-reaching implications for physical and neurological

rehabilitation. PEMF and HBOT work by taking advantage of the welldocumented

effects of electromagnetic fields and the power of oxygen

Clark eyes up water polo champs in Hungary

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

CHRIST’S COLLEGE water

polo exponent Louis Clark

has been selected in the New

Zealand team for the youth world

championships in Hungary in

August.

The 16-year-old from Fendalton

impressed selectors at a national

selection camp in Auckland three

weeks ago.

“It was a new environment for

me, those trials, and I was a little

nervous to start with, but I felt

better the longer it went and to be

selected is such a huge honour,”

he said.

Clark said he followed his older

brother into the sport at the start

of high school and has loved it

ever since.

“I’ve always loved being physical

in sports and water polo is like

rugby in water,” he said.

Clark also splits his time

between competitive swimming

and surf lifesaving at the Taylor’s

Mistake club.

Between his three sporting

ambitions, he has 12 regular trainings

a week which doesn’t leave

room for much else.

He said being able to have the

right balance between power and

agility was crucial for water polo.

While Europe tends to dominate

the scene, Clark said he and

the rest of the New Zealand

team are eager to test themselves

against the world’s best.

“It will be good to see where we

are at and test ourselves against

the best of what is out there,” he

said.

The story behind Papanui’s Rayburn Ave

Papanui Heritage Group

chairman Murray Williams

writes about Rayburn Ave

RAYBURN AVE, formerly

called Ingmire St, runs parallel

to Papanui Rd between Paparoa

St and Grants Rd. The street

occupies an area originally

carved out of rural sections 302

and 307.

In 1913, 11 sections in a new

housing development on Ingmire

St were advertised in The Press. It

was claimed that it was ‘the last

block of land suitable for subdivision

in the locality’ and that the

new street was ‘properly made

with concrete channelling and

asphalt pavements.’

Perhaps the four years of war

slowed building development,

as in 1920 there were still building

lots available in this street,

but the coming decade saw a

boom in the construction of new

housing in south Papanui and

Ingmire St was no exception.

The Californian bungalow,

characterised by street-facing

double gables complemented

with shingles, dominated in the

1920s, while in the next decade

the elegant English bungalow

HISTORY: A 1920s Californian bungalow on Rayburn Ave.

with its hipped roof and more

complex window joinery was

popular. After the war, the more

basic bungalow, developed by

Paramount Homes, made an

appearance at the north-eastern

end of the street.

It is possible that a change in

the name of the street had added

to its popularity as the northern

end of Ingmire St had been notoriously

swampy and, although

drained before subdivision, its

name had done little to inspire

confidence in potential residents.

In 1926, the street became Rayburn

Ave, although in 1932 an

article in The Press noted the apparent

anomaly that the avenue

was treeless. It is not clear when

the planting occurred; unlike

neighbouring Perry and Dormer

St, Rayburn Ave was not a designated

memorial street, a status

which attracted kerb side planting

after World War 2. The introduction

of street-side trees to

Rayburn Ave must have occurred

between 1932 and 1943, the latter

the date of a city council minute

scheduling future tree planting

in south Papanui streets where, it

was noted, that ‘Rayburn Ave had

already been done’.

Today, Rayburn Ave is a pleasant

and popular residential street.

Many of the original houses have

been modified but most of these

enhancements have been sensitively

designed and the street has

maintained much of its original

character.

In 2016, Rayburn Ave was one

of several in this neighbourhood

to face the threat of reclassification

to permit more intensive

housing development.

Eventually an independent

hearing panel ruled against this

application and hopefully the

street will be able to retain its

distinctive charm based on the

well preserved timber bungalows

that characterised the inter-war

period.

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.

BRAIN FOG, FORGETFUL, FEELING OLD, LOW ENERGY, MOOD SWINGS,

DIFFICULTY SLEEPING, PINS & NEEDLES, NUMBNESS IN LEGS

Up to 1 in 2 people may have a shrinking brain due to a lack of vitamin B12.

Supplementation of methylcobalamin B12 has been shown to reduce the rate of brain

shrinkage & support memory & brain function. B12 is also known to protect against

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that can also damage the hearing,

eyesight & affect the mood. B12 is essential for energy, cell health & nerve function.

from this exercise program that it has

now grown from one weekly class to four

weekly classes. New classes have also been

added to be effective for those who have

suffered from Osteoporosis, Intermittent

Claudication, and Diabetes. On top of

that they also run four weekly classes

for seniors. These weekly rehabilitation

and injury prevention classes can lead to

continued gym membership at a reduced

cost. Participants may also be eligible for

a WINZ subsidy to pay for the continued

gym membership with their super

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

Winter is upon us and we have many buyers looking

for their next home. If you are thinking of selling this

year, now is the time to do it.

There is a very short supply of homes on the market

at present which means buyers have very little options

to choose from.

Kathryn and I believe that the time is right to market

and sell your home. We would welcome a call from you

to discuss selling your home, we may just have a buyer!

HOMES NEEDED NOW -

URGENT

• First home buyers looking to

$400,000

• 4 bedroom homes Strown,

Merivale up to 1.8 Million

• 2 bedroom unit, Merivale up to

$380,000

• As is up to $800,000, any area

Property for sale

Buy ONE or buy TWO...

1007A and 1007B Colombo Street, St Albans - Auction Wednesday 4th July 2018 (Unless Sold Prior) - Listing Numbers: ST7411 & ST7412

2 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 1 living room | 1 dining room | 1 car-garage | 1 off-street park

Yes that’s right this is an exceptional opportunity for individual buyers, those looking to

get on the property ladder or an investment. This proposal sits in a popular location that

has seen significant regeneration in recent years due to the excitement of its proximity

to the CBD and a gentle stroll to Edgeware Village. Both homes offer street frontage

and presented in low-maintenance brick for ease of mind. Renovated throughout while

injecting a contemporary flare, including retro glazing. A sun drenched open plan living,

well-appointed kitchen and bathroom and two double bedrooms. A private and secure

courtyard, single garage with off street parking adds to the appeal. With zoning for

several sought after schools (including St Albans Primary, Heaton Intermediate, CGHS

and CBHS), represents excellent value for money. Don’t miss this opportunity to secure

your own slice of the city fringe our owners are focused on a sale and the properties are

to be auctioned separately - hence this should be your call to action.

Client Testimonials

In May 2018 I decided to sell my property at 165 Westminster Street. Although I knew

a number of real estate sales people (including friends) I decided to place my property

with Peter Hampton from the St Albans office of Harcourts. I made this decision based

on a number of factors. Firstly I researched Peters track record and found he was an

achiever and was a proven professional person in all respects, secondly he worked

and seemed to specialise in the area, thirdly he worked in conjunction with his partner,

Katherine, which gave further impetus to the whole process.

I certainly made the right decision. We achieved a most satisfactory sale, the

communication between ourselves and Peter (and Katherine) was excellent and

everything went really well.

Above all these things, Peters enthusiasm and dedication to extract a successful sale was

catching... on the tail of his attitude we all got fired up! And were carried along with “the

ensuing real estate ride.”

Thanks Peter & Katherine...Thanks Harcourts!!

Nigel Keeley

Peter and Kathryn both have a passion for property that’s obvious when you first meet

them. Their enthusiastic approach and ability to see each property’s individual potential

makes them a great team when it comes to selling your property.

Geoff

Wikipedia search ‘The Hamptons’ and you will discover pages about a group of villages

and hamlets in Long Island, New York that form a popular seaside resort and one of the

historical summer colonies of the northeastern United States: a community-oriented

dwelling place for affluent families originally descended from salt-of-the-earth, potato

farming community stock.

Google search The Hamptons in Christchurch and you will come across a few parallel

observations. A husband and wife team with a passion for Canterbury homes, villages

and hamlets, dedicated to helping sometimes affluent and always salt-of-the-earth

families in their quest to find community-oriented dwelling places.

But let’s cut the sales flannel because that’s definitely not how Kathryn and Peter roll.

On the contrary, if you’re looking for sound, well-researched property advice, without

the hype then look no further. My family and I relocated here from Australia with no

prior knowledge of the various neighbourhoods and an innate fear of buying a property

on ground that might be susceptible to movement. The Hamptons proved to be our

salvation….careful, considered and coherent counsel, always with a smile and delivered

with a can-do approach to bespoke house viewing times and wine-inspired strategy

sessions.

The net outcome: we moved into our beautiful new family house in Strowan a few

months ago and what we owe the bank pales in comparison to our debt of gratitude to

Pete and Kathryn for helping us to find our dream home. I would be more than happy to

hear from you if you need any more convincing of why to consider the Hamptons when

thinking of buying or selling a property.

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

new home, I was 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 assured a well-meaning friend we had ample

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

fell short in hindsight. Our home was designed by highly respected

Christchurch architect the late Peter Beaven, for a magic little

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

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

employed Archology in Sydney, where we were living at 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 Villard 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 access to our underfloor to top-up

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

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

groundbreaking ideas 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 was struck by how all the home owners said

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

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

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

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

how to quickly establish a lawn on page 72.

We review all the latest 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,

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

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’ll prove that it can

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