Every

needs a

neighbour

like Ian

• By Sophie Cornish

PUTTING A SMILE on

people’s faces is what motivates

Ian Hamilton to keep doing

what he does.

For almost 35 years, the Ilam

resident, who lives on Karo

Pl, has selflessly volunteered

to help those around him and

finally two former neighbours

decided it was time he was

recognised.

Mr Hamilton was an

award recipient at the

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community

Board’s community services

awards this month after

being nominated by former

neighbours Stacey and Rachel

Armishaw.

Mr Hamilton’s volunteer

work began at the Lamb of

God Christian Community in

Burwood in 1983, and he’s been

involved with the group ever

since.

However, after the earthquakes,

he was forced to moved

from his home in Edgeware and

started afresh in Ilam.

There, Mr Hamilton became

the neighbour we all dream of.

Consultation

process

slammed

over

Cranford St

upgrade

• By Sophie Cornish

A CITY councillor has slammed

the Christchurch Northern

Corridor alliance team’s

consultation process over the

Northern Arterial Extension and

Cranford St Upgrade.

Mike Davidson said he was disappointed

in the process and that

for one of the consultations, the

Papanui-Innes Community Board

was only informed about it one day

before it closed.

Cr Davidson is a member of the

community board, which has also

expressed several concerns over the

project.

“Is is actually unbelievable and

unacceptable,” said Cr Davidson at

a council meeting last week, where

councillors approved the plan for

the remaining section of the $240

million motorway on Cranford St.

A spokeswoman from the CNC

alliance team and city council

referred questions from Nor’West

News about the consultation process

to the NZTA. It was not able to

respond before deadline.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel commented

saying she felt “nervous”

about the project, however, moved

the motion to make the decision.

from the editor’s desk

IAN HAMILTON is one of those

understated people in the community.

But today (page 1) we have put him on

the front page.

Ian’s neighbours in Karo Pl, Ilam,

decided it was time for him to be

recognised. They nominated him for a community services

award and along with others he has come up trumps.

Cooking meals, mowing lawns, taking the rubbish bins in

and out and lending his car are just a few ways he helps his

neighbours.

Good stuff, Ian.

Papanui Toc H track and field athletes have excelled at the

Down Under event on the Gold Coast (page 15).

Top young athletic talent from Australia and the United States

are competing. A great effort from Toc H.

Alcohol ban grows in Ilam, Burnside

• By Julia Evans

AREAS IN Ilam and Burnside

are set to get stricter alcohol

regulations being pushed by the

police and city council.

At a city council regulatory

performance committee

meeting last week, a report

recommending

changes

to permanent

alcohol restrictions

on streets

in Addington,

Riccarton, Ilam,

New Brighton,

Linwood and

Paul Reeves Burnside was

approved.

Canterbury area prevention

manager Acting Inspector Paul

Reeves said police were working

with the city council on the

10-year review of the alcohol restrictions

in public places bylaw.

“Essentially [it is] to help mitigate

any harm drinking alcohol

in public can cause,” he said.

“It gives us an option when we

do come across trouble or an incident

related to drinking. From

there, we can give the offender

a warning or even prosecution .

. . The bans give us the power to

be able to react.” The Jellie Park

SMASHED: The alcohol ban will be extended in parts of Ilam

and Burnside to help prevent disorderly behaviour and littering.

Recreation and Sports Centre

site is bound by an alcohol ban.

But Greers and Ilam Rds,

which the park is on, are not

included. The proposal would

extend the ban to cover all sides

of the road.

There were eight alcohol-related

calls to the area last year. The

report said that had declined

over the last five years.

“There are areas adjacent to

Jellie Park where groups of people

may congregate to consume

alcohol with associated antisocial

behaviour arising

. . . it is also an area where sexual

offending has occurred, such as

indecent exposure,” the report

said.

It said the permanent alcohol

ban area near Canterbury

University also needed to be

extended to cover Ilam School.

The report revealed in this

part of Ilam and Riccarton there

were 1077 alcohol disorder offences

last year.

But while police believe

alcohol will remain an issue

due to student partying and

pre-loading in the area, they

said the number of offences has

dropped “significantly” since a

permanent ban was introduced

in 2014.

The report said the permanent

alcohol ban area near Canterbury

University also needed

to be extended to cover Ilam

Primary School.

“By making [the school] part

of the alcohol ban area, it will

help to prevent any antisocial

behaviours caused by alcohol

drinking occurring in the school

area,” the report said.

ROAD PARTIALLY CLOSED

The Christchurch Northern

Corridor Alliance team is

planning to open the Belfast Rd

bridge in late October. However,

to construct the road and

connect the new bridge with the

existing road, the eastbound lane

on Belfast Rd between Blakes Rd

and Crawford Rd is now closed.

To visit the Belfast Cemetery,

road users should enter Belfast

Rd from Marshland Rd.

However, entry to the cemetery

may change for about three

months.

RESERVE SECURED

There is now no vehicle access

to Barnes Reserve in Redwood.

After more than a year of

requests to the city council,

Nor’West News reported a

resident was fed-up with cars

driving into the reserve at night,

causing damage to the grass

and safety concerns. A new

chain and post has now been

installed. The resident, Simon

Britten, will still speak to the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board about the

issue and query why there was

a lack of response from city

council for so long over what he

called a “trivial issue.”

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Another heAP Vet in the

fAmily….

Our son Connor has

just been accepted

into the Veterinary

Programme

at Massey in

Palmerston North.

Steve and I are

super proud as we

know how hard he’s

worked these past

5 months to make

the cut. A big part of the selection process

now is a weekend of interviews involving real

life situations and personality testing which

accounts for a large percentage of your final

grade. This is new but I think essential in

choosing the kids with the right set of skills

and personality traits to move into a very

select, challenging and not easy profession.

In our experience the best vets we have

encountered were not the cleverest kids

by any means. The unforgettable students

were relatable and practical, enjoyed solving

problems quickly and talking to people,

cared about animals in general, loved the

team environment and were hard workers.

You have to have fantastic work ethic in this

profession and not be a

complainer –

the hours are

long, the days

throw at you

many real life

emergency’s

constantly but

the rewards

personally are

huge. Its not

a job – it’s a

way of life and

it’s a privilege

to care for

pets and their

owners.

All our 3 three sons have loved animals

from day dot. All their lives they have

grown up with cats and dogs and horses

(through my parents). All three boys have

always been kind, caring and respectful

of all our pets and taken responsibility

for them. Our pets have come away on

holiday with us and we are not complete

as a family without them. Right from small

children they spent a fair bit of time at the

vet clinic, whether it be afterhours callouts,

watching their dad operate on eyes, coming

in to medicate and feed sick patients in the

weekends, helping me clean and feed our

cattery cats on public holidays or being an

extra pair of hands at a caesarian. They have

never resented the amount of time we spend

at the clinic and they have always wanted to

hear about interesting cases and be involved.

Up until this year Connor was at UC Berkeley

in San Francisco on a tennis scholarship,

playing for the Cal Tennis team and studying

an undergraduate

degree in

sciences. He spent

18 months of a 4

year scholarship

there and loved it

but had decided

he’d had enough

of tennis and

wanted to give

Veterinary science

a crack. Connor had given his life to tennis,

first playing at age of 3 and I think he’d simply

had enough. Time for a change and to move

forward with his life. He could have finished

his Undergraduate degree at Berkeley but

then he still needed to do the first semester of

prevet at Massey to gain entry into the course.

So he decided at Christmas to enroll in prevet

and put his Berkeley qualification on hold. He

loved studying at Berkeley – ranked the 6th

Best College in the world. He can finish his

undergraduate studies back there whenever

he wants.

A lot has changed since Steve and I were at

Vet school back in 86 and 87. Many of my

classmates are now lecturers and the Vet

faculty has had a massive much needed

revamp. The campus is much the same

and from what Connor has reported

the campus food is still average – main

problem being “not enough food” plus

no one cooks like his dad.

Believe it or not, Connor has the same

room in the same hostel his dad 31

years ago.

The campus

is pretty and

Connor is

enjoying

exploring all

the old places

in town his

dad and I

did on a

Saturday

night. It

hasn’t

changed

much in nearly 30 years.

Its going to be great having Connor in the

same country for the next 4 or so years. I’m

sure he’ll get lots of visitors. Another “ Heap”

one day at McMaster & Heap, and I know for

sure he’ll not disappoint. Here’s to a fantastic

succession plan. It gets to stay in the family

for the next 60 years or so. We bought the

practice in 1999 – I wonder what it will look

like in 2099. Probably a lot different but I hope

its still called McMaster & Heap, even though

I’ll be long gone!

Stringer unearths ancient artefacts

• By Sophie Cornish

JOHN Stringer’s archaeological

dig in Israel has uncovered

several ancient finds.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board member is excavating

in central Israel, just south of Tel

Aviv, as part of his PhD studies.

In the past two weeks, Mr

Stringer has uncovered three

ancient serrated flint knives, two

human-worked stones, one which

may have a cribbage-type game

with five bored holes, a large

black grind stone and buckets

of Bronze Age and Iron Age

bi-chrome ware, a type of pottery

found in Cyprus and in the

Eastern Mediterranean.

Many bones were also found.

On another site, Mr Stringer

uncovered a bowl which led

to the discovery of a new area,

which appeared to be an ancient

oil press production site, with

layers of collapsed shelves pots

which were destroyed in 830BC.

“As I excavated this vessel, it

became clear there was another

one underneath and one to the

side. As we go down, I think the

next two weeks could be extraordinary,”

said Mr Stringer.

“The finds are so delicate, we

are excavating . . . with brushes,

gently brushing the dirt and dust

aside as the remains fracture and

crush so easily. It is a very slow

process.”

Mr Stringer said the biggest

difficulty about travelling to

Israel was the 40+ deg C heat.

“We are having to adapt to the

intense heat and work, and to be

disciplined to drink five litres a

day. Several other archaeologists

have been down with dehydration

and stomach complaints,

and one has been hospitalised.”

They were also attacked by

incendiary devices from Gaza

last weekend, but no one was

hurt.

The trip is part of an official

excavation in an Israel national

park at Tell es-Safi (the biblical

Gath, home of Goliath) under

professor Aren Maier.

They are exploring for the

ancient gate of Gath as well as

uncovering the 830 BC destruction

layer of King Hazael of

Aram (mentioned in the Bible; 2

Kings 12:17) who met and traded

with the prophet Elisha.

Success for St Bede’s young farmers

• By Sophie Cornish

TWO BUDDING farmers

who attend St Bede’s College

have beaten 250 teams to win

the national finals of the New

Zealand Young Farmers TeenAg

competition.

Angus Grant, 16, and Nick

O’Connor, 15, competed in the

Invercargill final earlier this

month, which saw 14 teams from

across the country clash in wet

conditions.

The competition began with a

60min exam, consisting of short

answer questions, an essay and a

farm financial analysis.

The following day was the

two-section practical part. The

first section required competitors

to build a two-wire electric fence

and a chicken coup out of old

pallets. One hour and 45 minutes

was given to complete the tasks.

In this section competitors also

had to complete a 5min speech

on a given topic.

Section two was seven, 15-min

modules where competitors had

to demonstrate a range of skills

such as tractor driving, first

responders at an accident site,

sheep judging, and driving a

simulated logging harvester.

Scores were then tallied up and

the top five had to face-off in a

buzzer quiz.

Other St Bede’s students, Finn

Taylor and Tomos Blunt also

made the final and finished in

4th place.

SCHOOLS

“We’re stoked, it’s a big surprise,”

said Angus who lives in

Christchurch, but runs 160 ewes

on neighbours’ lifestyle blocks.

Nick is from a 600-cow dairy

farm near Westport and is a

boarder at St Bede’s.

“It was quite challenging

digging all the post holes and

pulling apart the wooden pellets

to make the chicken coop,” said

Nick.

The competition, which began

10 years ago, is becoming more

complex, said St Bede’s teacher

John McPhail.

“Organisers told me that this

was by far the most challenging

one yet as they are trying to make

the Teen Ag competition more

similar to the adult competition

(FMG Young Farmer of the

Year).”

WINNERS: St Bede’s College students

Bid to ease

Helmores Lane

bridge issue

CHANGES WILL be made to

avoid congestion for motorists

attempting to access Harper

Ave from Helmores Lane using

the bridge.

No-stopping restrictions

may be installed at the north

approach to the Helmores Lane

Bridge to prevent vehicles parking

there and to ease turning

for motorists, who still mistakenly

try to access Harper Ave

from the bridge.

Earthquake repairs for the

bridge were completed in

early 2016 and bollards were

installed on both sides of the

bridge to restrict vehicle access.

However, of the two most

popular GPS mapping systems,

one still indicates that the

bridge is open to vehicles.

This has resulted in turning

issues when cars approach

the bridge, as vehicles have to

manoeuvre 180 deg to exit the

street.

Installing the proposed

no-stopping restrictions at the

north approach to the bridge

will prevent parking and ease

turning for residents, park users

and other motorists.

The bridge is the only surviving

19th-century timber bridge

in Christchurch and it listed as

a heritage item by city council.

of how one person can make a

how little acts of kindness can mean

so much to others and improve their

motivated to keep going.

“It made me realise that there’s a

lot of people out there who generally

need help and they don’t get it or

Low-Cost Pensioner

Housing is Trust focus

For 45 years and counting, the Kenneth

F. Weaver trust inc. has been providing low

cost pensioner units for Cantabrians. located

throughout St. albans and edgeware areas,

the twenty nine units which the trust represents

were a dream of founder Kenneth F. Weaver

which became a reality.

the humble and very private community

service benefactor, the Kenneth F. Weaver

trust, inc. bears his name and shares in

the legacy of the prominent Christchurch

businessman. Maintained by a board of

experienced and supportive trustees, the trust

values its years of assistance to the dozens of

pensioners it has been able to serve.

“all those years ago, i felt a strong desire to

support pensioners throughout the city where

i’ve grown up. Having been born in rakaia

and although i have travelled the world, leaving

home at 15 to join the merchant navy, i came

back to start my family several years later.” He

shares. “then upon returning to Christchurch, i

saw a need and felt prompted to do something

about it.”

“i have worked in many industries and

became a businessman who was fortunate in

their investments and business ventures. i have

learned a lot about people and identified a way

to support them. all those years ago, i saw a

need for affordable housing in the pensioner

segment and decided to do something about it.

“i looked at the available central government

schemes and applied for some funding. there

was a lot of paperwork and many questions,

but the ministry saw the value in my goal and

helped me launch the trust. i had set up a

private trust and to this day, my understanding

is that the Kenneth F. Weaver trust inc. is the

only private trust that has been supported

through ministry channels.”

the Kenneth F. Weaver trust inc. well-earned

reputation lives by the motto – For the Benefit

of others and their goal is to offer rental security

for life.

How the unit process works is that a unit

only becomes available when a vacancy

occurs. Most of the residents have been there

for decades. Back in the late 1970’s when the

doors opened, the rent per week was $11.25.

Now forty five years later it has only risen to

$155 a week, for a single person, 1 bedroom

unit and we feel very good about the ability we

have had to maintain and keep our rental costs

as low as possible. We’re not in this to make

a big profit, but to help serve our community

while maintaining our costs.

all the trust units are well maintained, and our

residents and management team take pride in

keeping them in top condition. the gardens are

maintained by residents and a gardener.

each of the units provide one or two

bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen, laundry and

bathroom facilities.

the residents develop a close knit

community and support for each other which

provides comfort and peace of mine for each

resident. there is no medical care on site, but

the trust units have doctor rooms close by.

Interested in applying?

applicants must:

- Be over sixty

- Have a genuine housing need

- Have less than $25,000 in cash

(excludes car or furniture)

at this time the trust is taking applications

for their waiting list. Apply online at

Northern Corridor traffic

issues need to be sorted

Richmond

resident

Don Gould

talks about

the changes

to Cranford

St and

surrounding

areas

following the completion of

the Christchurch Northern

Corridor

CRANFORD ST residents are

angry about the levels of traffic

that the new Northern Arterial

motorway will drop into their

street, preventing them from

getting out of their homes and

into the traffic.

In Christchurch driving attitude

is all to often: “Oh, you want

to get in, I’ll speed up and you

can join behind me,” but the guy

behind us thinks: “Oh, a gap, I’ll

just speed up.”

When I slow to let folk in they

just look confused and the traffic

behind me gets angry.

In other parts of the country

and the world the attitude is: “Oh,

someone wants to come in, I’ll

slow and let them in”.

People on Cranford St just can’t

get out of their homes and it’s

causing them stress.

The bite back will come as local

communities lobby city council

to impose 30km/h zones across

the whole city on main roads to

make it easier to get into traffic,

and it’s working in the central

city.

Linwood already has a 30km/h

zone on Stanmore Rd. The success

has driven Richmond to ask

the same question.

Other suburbs are looking

too. The new Ferry Rd Master

Plan in Woolston is also looking

to impose a 30km/h zone and add

a number of ‘road crossing’ opportunities

to make their suburban

space safer for those on foot.

Are the gains from new highways

going to be quickly lost as

suburbs work to keep their spaces

safe and pleasant to exist in or is

the ring of suburbs around the

CBD going to vacate to the new

outer urban areas leaving a low

quality waste land only 5min

Sonya O’Connor – This is

THE LAYOUT to the Cranford

change this week in preparation

for the Christchurch Northern

Corridor extension and upgrade.

New line markings will

temporarily shift lanes to give

the CNC alliance team more

room to excavate and install

cables underground at the northwest

corner of the Innes Rd

intersection.

THe changes will come into

effect on tomorrow.

Traffic will still be able to turn

left into Cranford St from Innes

straight through lane.

To allow traffic flow heading

north on Cranford St at the

intersection, workers will

temporarily shift the right

turning lane heading south. Left

and straight through traffic on

Cranford Street will use

the same lane.

On-street parking will be

NORTHWOOD residents are

continuing their long-term battle

to improve the intersection at the

entrance of the subdivision.

The Northwood Residents’

Association has indicated the

intersections of Main North

Rd, Northwood Boulevard and

Radcliffe Rd are not safe enough

for pedestrians.

Residents’

Association

chairman

Clive Smith is

calling for a

review of the

current layout

and design.

Previously,

residents have

worked with

the city council, NZ Transport

Agency and local politicians to

improve the traffic lights, lane

alignments and transition timings.

Mr Smith said the safety of

pedestrians is perhaps “the most

worrying part” of the intersection.

Pedestrians are being

caught in the middle of the road

when crossing Main North Rd

as they are only halfway across

when the red signal begins flashing.

“At this stage there are also

right-turners coming out of

Radcliffe Rd and these are people

who have been waiting for that

arrow for quite some time and

these pedestrians walk into this

red zone and its a very difficult

situation.”

NZTA senior traffic and

safety engineer David Scarlet

said it is aware of residents’

concerns about the intersection.

He said NZTA will have a

look at the way the intersection

operates in coming months to

check that the signal settings are

safe for pedestrians and do not

require changing.

Mr Smith also said for drivers

leaving Northwood approaching

the intersection, it can be

confusing and irritating.

“Simply because there is only

room for two lanes and there

should be three.”

He believes it could benefit

from a left-hand, straight forward

and right-hand turning

lane.

The intersection is presently

part of the state highway network

which is administered by

the NZTA.

St Andrew’s, St Margaret’s

take junior netball titles

• By Jacob Page

ST MARGARET’S and St

winners at the junior South

Island secondary school netball

tournament at Hagley Park.

More than 90 year 9 and 10

teams competed across three

days.

St Margaret’s triumphed in

the year 9 competition, beating

Marlborough Girls’ College

33-19 in the final, while St

Andrew’s beat St Margaret’s in

the year 10 final 24-21.

St Andrew’s coach Shelley

Norris said the team handled

playing eight games in three

days.

“The team really found a way

to grind it out there late in the

tournament, because they were

tired but I was really thrilled

with how they played,” she said.

“We had a squad which gave

everything they had and to

get the win in the final was

fantastic.”

St Margaret’s year 9

coach Julie Seymour said

her girls embraced the new

experience

of playing tournament netball.

“It’s a big step up for the

into a bonding experience and

we all stayed together in the

she said.

“It was a good experience for

the girls to play so many games

in a short period of time because

it gave them an appreciation of

the value of rest and recovery

between games,” she said.

“It’s fair to say the girls were

nervous ahead of the final which

is totally understandable given

their age, but they all stuck to

Aitken made the final cut

national tournament while she

was playing for Canterbury.

“You always know at nationals

that the scouts are watching

but with the standard of North

Island touch (being better), it

wasn’t something that was on

my radar,” she said.

“I was just happy for the experience

of trialling so to make

Aitken trained with her teammates

to beat the Australians and

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 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

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

What makes a great

Heat Transfer System?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected

components to optimise the system:

They use insulated duct to transfer the

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance

and number of rooms, without being noisy.

The diffusers send the heat to the floor,

not to skim the across the ceilings. All

components are good quality - designed to

operate for years without problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of

options: One to four rooms, with or without

thermostat and with a choice of grilles and

diffusers. HTUs improve energy efficiency

in your house, as you are using excess

heat. They have low power consumption

- only 80watts for the three room system.

Circulating air through the house also

reduces the risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU version

with downjet diffusers, which throw the

warm air downwards to the floor. These

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to

regulate which room receives the most

warm air.

An average size living room requires 2-4

kw of heating, yet appliances such as log

burners generate heat in the region of 10

-20kw. This leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of

heat which sits at high level in the heated

room, usually above door level.

Heat transfer units work best where very

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate

warm air around the room with no

layering, are not suitable as a heat source

by themselves. However, if you have both

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer

systems with thermostat can work very

well: The heat pump stops operating once

the heat from the fire has heated the room,

and the heat transfer kicks in above this

point, once there is a layer of hot air at the

ceiling.

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH

(0800 766 684) to ask how they can help

you with your Heat Transfer, as well as

any other ventilation requirements.

Specialists advise a vehicle

check before winter sets in

Winter weather can present a range of tricky driving conditions

order, and to ensure your vehicle will start on cold mornings they

offer free battery and alternator and starter tests, and free battery

fitting.

equipment designed to find any faults with vehicles’ electronics, air

bags or ABS braking system, which the qualified and experienced

auto electrical specialists will repair quickly and efficiently.

Roses Auto Electrical provides full electrical services for all

The interior of this extraordinarily

appealing home has been largely crafted

using the enduring beauty of native timber,

box in a suburban setting. It offers all the

rustic charm you want with all the comfort

you need, combining all day sun with

beautiful views and superb living spaces,

solar hot water panels, two water tanks, a log

burner on wetback and gas cooking.

The cleverly designed floor plan allows

home with three double bedrooms upstairs

with one of these opening onto its own

balcony and a spacious sun drenched open

plan kitchen/lounge opening to the deck

and garden. Along with all of this, two tile

and timber detailed bathrooms all make for

good family living or, in the unlikely event,

you want to share your piece of paradise

with others this will, of course, make for

a wonderful Airbnb proposition, with 2

bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with its own

open plan kitchen and living areas opening

onto the balcony. Tucked away, a short walk

from the main house must be the ultimate

romantic retreat in the form of a candle

lit cabin with an outdoor bath over a fire.

The Atarmies

LEGENDARY local rockers The Atarmies play a

Sunday arvo session at the Brighton Club this

weekend.

The four piece, made up of Mark Jayet

(drums, vocals); Mark Wootton (lead guitar,

vocals); Dennis Abbott (bass, vocals); and

Darren Alexander (lead vocals guitar), has been

engaging audiences with their special blend of

classic rock and blues for well over a decade.

Catch them at the club from 3pm. Or even

better still, make a day of it and start with

brunch! The Pierview Restaurant is open from

10.30am to 2pm offering all the expected

scrumptious breakfast/brunch delights.

Located upstairs in the New Brighton Club,

the Pierview Restaurant has always been a

popular destination for dining and private

functions. Offering uninterrupted views of

beach, pier and coastline, the view is a stunning

accompaniment to any occasion.

Apart from Sunday Brunch the Pierview is

open from 5.30pm Friday to Sunday serving

quality, yet very affordable, a la carte dining that

includes GF and vegetarian options. The

restaurant also caters to children.

The last Sunday of the month has turned into

a tradition with the Pierview’s ‘all you can eat’

Buffet. Priced at just $25 per person, tables fill

fast on buffet nights, so bookings are essential.

And on all the other Sundays, there’s a choice of

the regular dinner menu, blackboard specials, or

take advantage of the great value $25 set three

course Sunday special.

Downstairs the club's Tramshed Bistro is open

for lunch and dinner Tuesday to Saturday with a

great selection of meals, light meals, and snacks.

As well as live music and great dining, the

New Brighton Club provides big screen sport

and rugby, gaming room, plus social and

sporting sections. New Member enquiries are

most welcome. The New Brighton Club, 202
