Making new friends during the holidays

Isla Sinclair-Parker of South New Brighton was at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve for Kidfest’s junior keeper programme

when she made friends with Kati and Neo the Keas. Neo is one of the most inquisitive birds at Willowbank and is first

to check out every person who comes into their home. The now sold-out programme allows kids to work alongside

the keepers, helping with feeding, watering and cleaning the enclosures.

admits

women

for first

time

• By Sarla Donovan

WOMEN HAVE joined the

Ferrymead Lions for the first

time since the group was formed

41 years ago.

Rosemary Lory, Ann Newsom,

Jenny Godden and Ann

Finnemore recently became the

first female members of the club

at the recent annual induction

of new members and officers,

known as ‘the change over meeting.’

Vice-president Bernie Godden

said it added an extra special

note to the annual event, held at

the ‘Lions Den’ (aka the club’s

meeting rooms in Ferrymead.)

He said the change had been

driven by current president Bill

Newsom (Ann’s husband) “who

decided it was about time we did

it.”

Mrs Godden, who is Bernie’s

wife, said the club had made her

feel extremely welcome.

THERE’S A top rugby league story on page

15 today, involving names from the past

and ones to watch for the future.

Halswell club teenagers Tanner Smith

and Cooper Te Hau are carrying on a family

friendship which spans generations.

Their grandfathers Norm Geddes and Peter Smith played with

and against each other in the 1970s, and their fathers, Arthur

Geddes and Pat Smith shared a similar friendship and rivarly on

the field.

Pat’s name is of course synonymous with Canterbury rugby

league. It’s his name on the trophy presented each year to the

winning grand-final side.

I remember following the Papanui Tigers as a kid in the 1970s,

who Norm Geddes played for.

A very handy sort of player.

Opening cycleway in style

PARKING

A PARTY at Linwood Park

celebrated the opening of the

second stage of a cycle route that

will connect the central city with

Sumner.

A community barbecue,

children riding bikes and scooters,

and bicycle-powered fruit

smoothie makers were part of

the upbeat occasion marking the

second section of the Rapanui to

Shag Rock cycleway being ready

for action.

City councillor and chairwoman

of the infrastructure,

transport and environment committee

Pauline Cotter formally

opened the new route on Friday.

She said the new section,

which passes through a treelined

median on Linwood Ave,

would provide a safer and a more

direct route for cyclists, helping

children and teenagers bike to

school.

“We know that making cycling

safer encourages more people

to choose to cycle, whether it’s a

commute to work, school, shops

or as a recreation choice. I think

this section of the Rapanui Shag

Rock cycleway is arguably the

most scenic in the city to date,

and all credit to the design team

who have taken advantage of and

preserved the beautiful natural

features of Linwood Ave,” Cr

Cotter said.

SCOOT: Linwood Scout Group children celebrating the cycleway opening on Friday.

The project involved constructing

2km of shared pathway, along

with storm water, lighting and

landscaping improvements.

The signals at Chelsea St,

Hargood St and Dyers Rd have

also been upgraded.

The route passes through the

median strip of Linwood Ave

under 65-year-old elm trees

with thousands of daffodil bulbs

planted on either side of the cycle

path.

Great care was taken during

the construction of the new

cycleway to protect native fish in

the Linwood Canal.

About 3665 sq m of porous

pavers have been used to preserve

the trees’ root systems.

Another 150 new trees are

currently being planted along the

length of Linwood Ave.

NZ Transport Agency Regional

Director Jim Harland said

cycleways were a proven way

to improve the health of a city,

reduce congestion and lower the

cost of infrastructure.

“When the cycleway is fully

completed, it will also provide

access to recreational areas,” Mr

Harland said.

Southshore couple

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!

get consent after drawn out battle

The Christchurch Coastal

Residents’ United group say a

restricted discretionary activity

rule, recommended by the

replacement District Plan independent

hearings panel, was left

out when the plan was finalised

last year. The group is made up

of coastal residents and experts.

Without the discretionary

rule, under the District Plan new

developments or intensification

of land use in the High Flood

Management Plan area is to be

avoided.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board deputy chairman Tim

Sintes said leaving the rule out

may have been a mistake and he

is working with interested parties

to put it right.

He said for residents to buy a

section of land and be told they

can’t build or get their money

back was an “extremely distressing”

position to be in.

A city council independent

hearings panel decision on the

rule was scheduled to be made

on Friday but was delayed and

will not be out until Monday

next week.

It comes as Regenerate

Christchurch has started public

consultation with Southshore

and South New Brighton residents

on how to solve rising sea

level issues. MPs met last month

to help solve residents’ problems

over getting resource consents.

Christchurch East MP Poto

Williams said MPs will decide

on what their next action will be

based on the decision made by

the independent hearings panel.

Miss Donne and Mr Wood

were originally told by the city

council a building consent would

be granted in February.

But after agreeing to sign

a waiver under section 72 of

the Building Act 2004 in their

property’s certificate of title, the

consent was granted last month.

Mr Sintes said by signing the

waiver, the city council cannot

take the blame if anything was to

go wrong with the property.

Miss Donne said if she hadn’t

signed the waiver, the couple

would have had to go down the

road of getting a resource consent

as well.

She said it was “daunting”

signing the document as it made

them uncertain as to how it

could affect them in the future in

terms of insurance.

RISK:

Residents in

Southshore

face building

consent

issues due to

being in the

High Flood

Management

Plan area.

Mr Sintes said in the last few

weeks, residents in the High

Flood Management Plan area

have been telling him they have

had difficulty getting insurance.

Miss Donne said she feels

lucky to have a building consent

in the coastal area.

“Some people would say we are

crazy investing in our first home

here, but we love the beach lifestyle

and wouldn’t live anywhere

else.”

She said the extension could

have been built before her baby

was born. It is due on September

25. The couple now won’t begin

the project until summer. Their

home, referred to as a “beach

shack”, is currently 70 sq m.

“Not living in such a small

place that your work clothes

smell of last night’s roast lamb

because the wardrobe is near the

kitchen will be nice,” she said.

They were aware they were in a

flood zone and contacted the city

council before engaging in the

project in about November.

Miss Donne said the city council

initially told them they would

need higher floor levels to allow

the consent to go ahead. But

then they began to get unclear

answers.

She attended several community

board meetings and went

to Mr Sintes to resolve the issue

before the city council proposed

the couple signed the waiver.

But Miss Donne acknowledged

the long process was not entirely

the city council’s fault as the couple’s

engineer had moved away

without telling them, leaving

them “hanging for months”.

Community

Board member

Lee Sampson

talks about the

board’s

age-friendly

initiative

I’M VERY pleased to announce

the community board will be

among the first local bodies

in New Zealand to launch a

recognised age-friendly initiative

aimed at promoting the wellbeing

of our older people.

It also aims to create a greater

awareness of the opportunities

and challenges facing our ageing

populations.

The initiative was formally

launched this month at a forum

for the Older Adults Network

through the interim working

party, and will follow a similar

format to the World Health Organisation’s

‘age-friendly world’

concept.

Presentations given at the

launch by Office for Seniors

set a great tone for the break-out

discussion and brainstorming

held later.

We know a huge amount of

work is already happening in our

area, especially through agencies

such as Age Concern, but the

pressures and gaps are only going

to grow with longer life expectancies

and increasing demands.

In 20 years, more than 25 per

cent of the population will be

over 65 – so it’s critical we collectively

adjust our mind-sets and

front-foot the issues and opportunities

this presents.

The challenges discussed

included loneliness and social

isolation, improving mobility

and public transport, the lack

of appropriate housing, tackling

ageism and individualism, along

with the strains for many on

fixed incomes.

No doubt part of the solution

will be increasing the level of

collaboration and promoting

stronger connections for the

sector, as well as enabling more

opportunities for residents to stay

connected and active – in fact

research shows those people who

stay active live longer.

It’s early days, but we are really

excited by the potential. The next

step will be the formation of a

local steering board comprising

about six to eight persons. Essentially

this will be our ‘think

tank’ responsible for developing

the initial structure, establishing

the action plans and our prioritisations.

•If you are interested in

being involved, steering

board nominations are

being sought until the end

of July. Email lee.sampson.

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

Access all areas for

Barrington Park play

AN INCLUSIVE play

space that features a

wheelchair-accessible

climbing structure and

carousel – along with

visual aids – has opened in

Barrington Park.

City council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge

said the major upgrade has

resulted in a wonderful

play space that can be enjoyed

by youngsters with a

mix of abilities and skills.

“Barrington Park now

hosts an inclusive area that

caters for children with

disabilities,” Mr Rutledge

said.

“From a wheelchairaccessible

sand play feature

to a carousel suitable for

two wheelchairs or pushchairs,

the new space offers

multiple opportunities for

interactive play.

“The climbing structure

is 90 per cent wheelchair

accessible, with ramps

with a suitable gradient,

plenty of room for turning

around, play panels and

talk tubes.

“Youngsters can also sit

or lie on a net see-saw and

the jumping jacks.

“The visual aids on the

climbing structure and

equipment colour choices

all contribute to the creation

of a play space that

meets multiple needs.”

Among the other allaccess

features are a highback

infant swing seat, a

basket swing, a stainless

steel slide, a babel drum

and talk tubes throughout

the play space.

A central path connects

all the spaces and allows

users to move between the

areas with ease.

Most areas have accessible

safety surfaces.

“We have also included

accessible picnic tables and

seating and a periphery

path,” Mr Rutledge said.

“The design has been

peer reviewed by the

Barrier Free NZ Trust to

ensure it is as inclusive as

possible while still providing

a challenge to users.”

For the more adventurous,

the play space features

several slides, a fireman’s

pole and a custom-made

rock-climbing boulder

with a tunnel, monkey bars

and a balance beam.

Work began on the park

in April, with landscaping

to be completed as the area

dried out.

Communication boards

will be added to the play

space in the coming

months, as well as abike

stand and a scooter stand.

Court appearance after damage to park

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Anan Zaki

A 39-YEAR-OLD man accused

of vandalising Hornby’s Leslie

Park will appear in the district

court next month.

He was originally set to appear

last Thursday, but the court

hearing was delayed to August 2.

No explanation was given for the

delay.

Police apprehended the man on

July 5 after allegedly being caught

doing donuts at the home ground

of the Hornby Panthers.

He was charged with

operating a motor vehicle

causing sustained loss of

traction, failing to stop, wilful

damage and driving with excess

breath alcohol.

This was the second time in

two months that the park was

vandalised. Damage to the field

in the earlier incident forced the

Panthers to play away from their

home ground for five weeks.

The latest incident came just

one week after the team returned

to the field.

Hornby Panthers club president

Brent Tomlinson said it was

“heartbreaking” to see the fields

damaged again.

Mr Tomlinson said the

club was using the field under

restricted conditions imposed by

the city council to prevent turf

damage and the vandalism made

an already difficult situation

worse.

The park was given a

$144,000 turf upgrade for the

Rugby League World Cup last

year.

The city council has

cleared the team to return to

the field following the latest

incident.

Slower speed for Richmond Hill

• By Sarla Donovan

RICHMOND HILL will have a

restricted speed zone of 40km/h

imposed from October as the

city council attempts to address

safety issues in the area.

The 100 section-plus Greenwood

Farm subdivision has generated

additional traffic on the

hill suburb’s narrow roads and

increased community concern

over driver

and pedestrian

safety.

The restricted

area starts at

the bottom of

Richmond Hill

Rd where it

Sara

Templeton

meets Nayland

St and stretches

up to the summit.

Nayland St is not included.

However, a trial 30km/h speed

limit there and on Wakefield

Ave is expected later this year.

Public consultation showed

majority support for the

measure, although a number

of the 68 submission criticised

the lack of footpaths in the

area.

“It is very irresponsible for

the city council to allow a new

subdivision with hundreds of

more vehicle movements per

SLOWER: The speed limit on Richmond Hill will be lowered to 40km/h. ​

day and not upgrade the road

and footpath,” said one

submitter.

“I would think this would

actually be illegal. When we

drive up and down the road, we

daily see young school children

in dark uniforms having to

walk on the unlit road. It is just

a matter of time before one of

these children will be killed by

a car.”

City council manager planning

delivery and transport

Lynette Ellis said due to the

physical constraints, particularly

land stability, it was unlikely

any physical widening will be

initiated.

“Any upgrade will be in the

form of repair and resurfacing

to the current road surface and

footpath.”

She said at the time the consent

was granted in 2006, the

developer was not required to

pay development contributions

towards associated transport

activity.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton has asked

city council staff to “investigate

the pedestrian safety concerns

on Richmond Hill Rd outlined

in the submissions and report to

the (Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community) Board with

potential solutions by the end of

2018.”

She said the lack of footpaths

in the hill suburbs had been a

concern for some time, “especially

for children getting to and

from school.”

It will cost about $5000

to install the new 40km/h

speed signage on Richmond

Hill.

Car hoons

cause safety

concerns

• By Julia Evans

STREET RACING, burnouts,

dumped bottles and rubbish are

causing safety concerns for Lester

Lane businesses.

And that’s on a street only

200m long.

THe city council is investigating

putting no-stopping restrictions

along the lane, which runs off

Deans Ave, as businesses are

plagued by night-time antisocial

behaviour.

THis has created a safety issue

for staff working at night in

adjacent buildings, including the

New Zealand Blood Service and

CropLogic, a city council report

said.

Feedback is open on the plan,

which would see no-stopping

restrictions along the lane from

11pm to 5am.

“THe no stopping restrictions

will enable NZ Police to move

vehicles on and stop vehicles and

their passengers from gathering

here,” the report said.

Canterbury to get ideas for the

new Linwood-Woolston Pool.

Pupils from St Anne’s Catholic

School, Bamford School, Catholic

Cathedral College and Te Waka

Unua School were among those

that went on the trip.

“The purpose of the tours were

for the students to experience a

range of pools so that they can

have informed discussion that

draws on their knowledge and

experiences. This will be most

helpful when the time comes for

formal engagement on the design

of the new Linwood pool,” said

St Anne’s principal Dallas Wichman.

The pools visited were the

Selwyn Aquatic Facility in Rolleston,

Caroline Bay Trust Aoraki

Centre in Timaru, Dudley Park

Aquatic Centre in Rangiora and

Taiora: QE II Recreation and

Sports Centre.

The pupils’ favourite was the

Timaru pool because it was deep,

had a dive tower, diving board

and two hydroslides.

They also enjoyed QE II

because of the lazy river and

hydroslide.

Love of league brings family together

• By Jacob Page

HALSWELL RUGBY league

teenagers Tanner Smith and

Cooper Te Hau are carrying on

a family friendship which spans

four generations.

They are both Halswell Hornets

and Canterbury under-14

teammates – two decades after

their grandfathers Norm Geddes

and Peter Smith played with

and against each other in the

1970s.

Ironically their fathers, Cooper

and Tanner’s great-grandfathers,

Arthur Geddes and Pat Smith

shared a similar friendship

through rugby league, playing

with and against each other in

various teams.

Pat’s name is on the trophy the

winners of the Canterbury premier

rugby league final receive

each year.

Pat was 31-years-old when he

first played for the Kiwis in 1946.

The front-row forward captained

the national team in 38

appearances – including 10

consecutive tests – between 1947

and 1949.

Peter was a Canterbury and

South Island representative in the

1960s.

Norm, a Papanui stalwart

and Peter, a Marist regular,

played against each other

throughout the 1960s and early

1970s.

FAMILY AFFAIR: Peter Smith (left), his grandson Tanner Stowers-Smith, Cooper Te Hau and his grandfather Norm Geddes enjoy a

family friendship built by their love of rugby league which spans four generations. (Right) – Former Kiwis captain Pat Smith.

“My dad used to pick up Peter

in the morning when they used

to live out at Prebbleton but

we’d see each other on the field,”

Norm said.

“It’s quite a thrill to think

our families have crossed paths

through sport for all these years.”

Norm was a second-rower who

transitioned into the centres late

in his career and picked up a

Canterbury top try-scorers title

near the end of his career in the

1970s.

Cooper and Tanner are now

coached at Halswell by Cooper’s

father, Kevin Te Hau.

Vehicles

tagged

with rude

messages

• By Anan Zaki

SEVERAL BROOMFIELD

and Islington residents were

left with some rude signs on

their vehicles.

A vehicle was tagged with

the phrase, “drugs?” while

another had “pedo van free

candy?” Others had male genitalia

spray painted on the sides

and bonnets. A police spokeswoman

said two incidents of

tagging on cars were reported

but victims informed them of

other incidents in the area that

went unreported by vehicle

owners.

Between 8pm on Friday and

10am on Saturday a Toyota

Corolla on Brixton St was

reported to have been tagged

and between 2am and 8am on

Sunday a Nissan diesel MK240

truck on Malabar Cres was

tagged, she said. “We do encourage

people to report these

incidents to give us an accurate

picture of what’s happening in

our communities.”

No arrests have been made

in relation to the tagging and

investigations are ongoing.

A BULLDOZER may soon be

put through the earthquake

damaged and graffiti-riddled

former Sockburn Service Centre.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board last

week asked city council staff to

start work on demolishing the

old Sockburn Service Centre.

Chairman Mike Mora said

the board made it “clear” to city

council staff about its intentions.

“We want it removed as soon

as possible because it’s a bit of an

eyesore and it’s a bit of a mess.”

City council head of facilities,

property and planning Bruce

Rendall said staff are currently

working on a report where demolition

plans are being drawn up.

“This report will be presented

to the community board in August,”

Mr Rendall said.

At last week’s meeting, the

board also voted to retain the

land on Main South Rd, which

the centre is on.

“There is possibility for us to

continue to use the site [after

demolition] and keep it in public

hands so that’s where we’re at

this point in time,” Mr Mora

said.

The centre was closed after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

One option that the city

council looked at for the site

was an access road through the

land from Main South Rd to

Blenheim Rd after the building is

demolished.

But Mr Mora said that option

has not been taken any further.

Greater Hornby Residents Association

chairman Marc Duff

said the site could potentially be

looked at for a new $35.7 million

community mega centre.

“It’s really in the city council’s

hands. As a community we’ve

got to be prepared to look at all

sites [for a centre].”

Mr Duff said many residents

felt it needed to be demolished.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Specialists advise a vehicle

check before winter sets in

Winter weather can present a range of tricky driving conditions

for motorists – from wet, slippery roads and heavy frosts to fog

and driving rain. That’s why it is important to make sure your

vehicle is in tip-top shape and ready to deal with these hazards

before winter really sets in.

The team at Roses Auto Electrical in Cranford Street recommends

checking that your lights and windscreen wipers are in working

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

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

fitting.

Their well-equipped workshop includes specialised diagnostic

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

makes and models of European, Japanese and light commercial

vehicles. Any time a warning light flashes up on the dashboard,

they advise calling into their workshop to have it checked out.

Roses Auto Electrical has been in business for more than 20 years,

and the workshop team are constantly updating their knowledge

with industry training, as well as having the latest state-of-the-art

equipment in the workshop.

The customer comes first for the friendly, professional team at

Roses Auto Electrical, and motorists having their vehicle serviced

there can have confidence in its performance and safety, especially

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of

dampness

in your house

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm and

healthy for their families throughout winter.

Rising damp is an issue that affects many of

our older properties which suffer from poor, or

no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, postquake,

many people have relocated to homes

that suffer from rising damp which can be

associated with health problems. Independent

tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can

rise from the ground and enter a house every

day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation

and musty smells. Moulds can produce

various allergic reactions and the

frail, elderly and very young are

especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete

Ltd is a locally owned and

operated firm. The team

understands the problems

caused by rising damp and are

there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump

a lightweight, flowable foam

concrete under your timber

floored home. Specially adapted

SOUTHERN VIEW

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

0508 362626 for more information.

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,

most homes include at least one heat pump,

if not a whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more

convenient than a log burner as you just need

to press a button. But how do you decide what

is best? Choosing the right sized heat pump is

key to ensuring optimum comfort levels. Every

situation varies and it is therefore important

to get professional advice from heat pump

experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it

is important to select the correct size for your

requirements that will handle the job but not

be unnecessarily overpowered.

Secondly, the location of your heat pump

is also extremely important. The cheapest

installation is a back to back where the outdoor

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor

unit however this is not necessarily always

the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands vary

in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems

and price, so it depends on your application as

to which will be most suitable. Major brands

such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin,

Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands

backed up by good technical after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but also

validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to consider when choosing a

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi

capabilities.

Heating is a major investment in your home

and it is vital to get the right advice.

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,

installation and servicing of all major brands

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as

to which system will suit your application

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no

obligation quote and will come to your home

to see what is required.

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.

REAL ESTATE

A beautiful life… in serene seclusion

99 Purau Port Levy Road, Purau Bay

Negotiation over $939,000 plus GST (if any)

5 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 living/dining room | 3 car garage | 21.2440ha freehold land | Listing #6459

The interior of this extraordinarily

appealing home has been largely crafted

using the enduring beauty of native timber,

resulting in superb spaces for those who want

a whole lot more than a strictly utilitarian

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

for many options. Live on one side of the

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.

21.2440ha freehold land.

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
