Hornby.

She said her daughter

had been involved in

gymnastics for the past three

years and she trains four

times a week.

Her next focus will

be an Australian

Push to

demolish

service

centre

earlier than

planned

• By Matt Salmons

MAKE IT happen quickly.

That’s the directive from the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board, which is

pushing for early demolition of

the former Sockburn Service

Centre and VTNZ testing centre

buildings.

Chairman Mike Mora said the

board was happy with the report

presented by city council staff

last week outlining the proposed

demolition, but would push for

an earlier start than the planned

2022 time frame.

“Get it knocked down and get

the site tidied up so it’s a bit easier

to look at. It’s an eyesore and I

think people have had enough of

it,” Mr Mora said.

Board members were happy

to focus solely on the removal of

the service centre if it sped up the

process.

“But if we can get [both buildings]

down earlier than 2022,

we’d be really pleased.”

In spite of earlier concerns, the

decision was good news for the

Christchurch Slot Car Club which

had been on site for more than 20

years.

Door-stepping reports surge

• By Matt Salmons

HORNBY POLICE are receiving

double the number of reports of

door-stepping burglaries since

the issue was revealed in Western

News.

Door-stepping, the act of

stealing items from outside

houses, has been reported

recently in Broomfield, Hei Hei,

Hornby and

Wigram.

Senior

Constable

Bruce Ward

said “double

the amount of

door-stepping

reports” had

Bruce Ward

come in as

more people

became aware

of the issue. He said reports were

now coming in from as far as

Rolleston.

“That won’t be [the Hornby

suspects], they wouldn’t go

out there. Obviously the

article has raised people’s

awareness,” Senior Constable

Ward said.

A pair of Nike running

shoes were reported stolen in

Rolleston last week, with items

also reported missing from a

neighbouring property.

A 14-year-old was

apprehended in relation to the

Hornby burglaries and is set to

attend a youth justice family

conference.

Senior Constable Ward said

police have spoken to three of

eight further suspects who all

denied involvement. “But [the

suspects] know that we’re on to

them, so here’s hoping that that

will slow it down,” he said.

Senior Constable Ward said he

believed door-stepping was a “bit

of a faze” that could eventually

slow down in the same manner

as tagging.

He said he suspected the doorstepping

cases could be related to

“cannabis being reasonably rife

at the moment.”

He encouraged people to

report any items that went

missing outside their homes

instead of blaming themselves or

ignoring it.

“Just be mindful, if things are

lying around outside your door,

they’re liable to walk. But we

want to know.”

property, get in touch with

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Huntly’S exciting

day out…

Desexing is classified as a routine, fairly fast

procedure by most veterinarians but for the

owner and their pet it is a big deal. It is usually

the first time the client has had to leave their

little baby in our trusted hands for a whole

day bearing in mind its going to have an

anaesthetic which if not explained properly

can be very scary for the client. Many clients

are reluctant to part with their pet so its our

job to reassure clients, their special pet will be

ready and waiting for them at the end of the

day, job done.

At McMaster & Heap we

consider routine surgery

to be a big deal and

we are very careful to

explain the whole days

procedure and follow up

care very carefully to our

clients. We don’t want

our patients scared off

by the days’ events so

we are very gentle with

them. Lets face it, they

may be patients of ours

for the next 20 years so

we need to start off on

the right paw!!

Often the puppies have

visited the clinic before

for vaccinations and

puppy playschool so

have “good feelings”

about the practice.

Running around with

other puppies playing

chase, getting hugs from

us all and liver treats

helps portray our clinic

as a fun place. With the

kittens we place them

in a quiet space and

have feliway diffusers

running which naturally

calm them down. If they

are particularly stressed

out they are often given

their sedative early and

cuddled by our hospital

nurse.

Recently our nurse

Jaimee had her puppy

neutered.

Huntly has been here

before so bounded

through the doors.

We give our clients

the options of pre

anaesthetic blood testing

and intravenous fluids. The blood testing

can help us detect early subclinical disease

like diabetes, renal or liver disease. The fluids

help maintain a healthy blood pressure, help

remove the anaesthetic from the body, and

provide an intravenous route should we

require it.

On arrival they are thoroughly checked over

( temperature, heart rate, breathing rate) by

Michele anaesthetising Huntly.

a theatre nurse, bloods taken if required and

a catheter placed for an IV line. 30 minutes

before their operation they are sedated. Once

anaesthetized they are connected to an

anaesthetic monitoring device so the nurse

can easily and accurately track how things

are going.

A castration procedure takes about 30

minutes from start to finish. Basically both

testicles are removed, the scrotal sac is left

and there will be a small line of stitches that

will require removal in 10-14

days.

We provide 2 free check ups

if required. WE often send

puppies home with a large

lampshade (Elizabethan

collar) to prevent them

ripping at their stitches. We

do recommend leash exercise

only until the sutures are

removed.

Needless to say Huntly was

the “star” patient, going to

sleep when told and waking

up quietly and quickly. Some

of our boisterous patients can

be quite vocal once coming

around from their anaesthetic.

Lola finds it quite amusing

and is often seen checking up

on them.

Nearly all of the puppies we

see through McMaster & Heap

will be desexed as young

dogs. We do recommend

this procedure unless the

client is keen on breeding/

showing. Many serious health

concerns are eliminated

by desexing early on, for

example mammary and

testicular cancers, pyometras

and prostate disease. Plus it

stops unwanted pregnancies,

roaming dogs and it can

lessen aggressive behavior

before bad habits have

formed.

Early aggression in puppies

though requires the help of a

trained animal behaviouralist

very early on and possibly

medications from your vet.

This sort of issue will not

simply just right itself. Your

puppies personality though is

not affected by the operation.

Definitely best to have the

discussion with your vet as we all have

varying opinions on “the best time”. I give my

clients the option of waiting until their male

dog is cocking their leg before castration –

this usually occurs at 8-10 months of age.

For any more information and advice on why

or when to desex, please give anyone of us a

quick call at the clinic. We’d be happy to help.

DERELICT: The graffiti-covered and neglected former Sockburn Service Centre.

Push for demolition

•From page 1

Club spokesman Pete

Darrell said members were

previously unsure whether

their clubrooms – on the

same site but separate from

the service centre – would

be demolished as well, or

if their power would be cut

off.

“We went in [to the community

board meeting]

afraid that this could be the

end of our club,” Mr Darrell

said.

He said the club initially

wanted to hold demolition

until 2022 to allow them

time to arrange other

power sources or locations.

However, the community

board assured the club they

would support it staying

in, and maintaining power

to, the clubrooms right

through the demolition.

“That took the steam out

of our argument,” Mr Darrell

said.

lease would continue and

Leslie Park vandal pleads guilty

• By Matt Salmons

A DRINK driver has admitted

tearing up Hornby’s Leslie Park

in his car.

Graeme Thomas, 39, was

convicted of operating a motor

vehicle causing sustained loss of

traction, failing to stop, causing

wilful damage and driving with

excess breath alcohol when he

appeared in the district court

last week.

He pleaded guilty to the

charges and was remanded

on bail until sentencing

on November 14. His bail

conditions require that he not

drive or drink alcohol, but his

curfew conditions were lifted at

last week’s hearing.

He also qualified for an

alcohol interlock system to be

installed in his car – requiring a

clear breath alcohol test before

the engine could start – but he

had no vehicle at the time of his

appearance.

Leslie Park is the home

ground of the ​Hornby Rugby

League Club. President Brent

Tomlinson said damage to the

field was no longer visible at

ground level and the club had

played two games on it since

completing some basic repairs.

“We’ve had a couple of kids

games as well to try and soften the

blow. It’s pretty gutting really.”

It was the second time

vandalism to the field had

prevented teams playing there

within the space of two months.

“[The players have] missed a

huge chunk of this season just

because of the [vandalism],” Mr

Tomlinson said.

Missing four weeks of games

had also impacted the club’s

bottom line, which they would

struggle to make up in the short

time remaining in the season.

“There’s no win out of this,

it doesn’t help with your little

guys, your senior players or the

money you’ve lost.”

Mr Tomlinson said he was

glad Thomas was not known to

the club, as it would have hurt

more if the damage was done by

one of their own.

“Hornby’s a village and

most of the village have played

for the club or played league.

He obviously doesn’t know

what it means to the Hornby

community. It’s massive.”

As of last week, Mr Tomlinson

said the club had not heard from

Thomas.

“I would have expected at least

“It would be nice to hear

much to drink. But I’m not

going to hold my breath.” City

council manager community

parks Al Hardy said the city

council would not seek to

recover damages from Thomas.

“Fortunately, the damage was

of a superficial nature and [will]

Fire rages, homes at risk

From the sports field to the stage

• By Matt Salmons

HALSWELL’S Peni Junior Iva

is gearing up for two national

competitions in Auckland next

month – one on the sports field

and another on stage.

As if beginning each weekday

with an hour long bus trip to

Haeata Community Campus in

Aranui was not busy enough,

the year 13 student splits his free

time between his passions- club

and school rugby league games,

youth group, band rehearsals

and training.

“It’s a bit of a struggle every

morning [to travel to Haeata] .

. . but just with how the school

goes, it fits in well with how I

am,” he said.

PJ said he started playing

rugby union when he was 13, but

switched to league as it was “just

much more chill and fun.”

He said it also keeps fitness

levels high.

In early September, he will

play for Haeata at the secondary

schools national rugby league

development tournament in

Auckland. Last year Haeata went

all the way to the televised final,

but was beaten by Auckland’s

Marcellin College.

“It’s such a fun tournament,

playing alongside amazing

MULTI-TALENTED: Halswell’s Peni Junior Iva, 18, is a young man of many talents, both on the

sports field and live on stage.

players and learning off them.

“We’re hoping to get ourselves

[in the final] again this year and

take it out. We’ve got a lot of

juniors stepping up, so it’s cool

for them,” he said.

PJ is used to the responsibility

of setting a positive example to

younger peers both on and off

the field.

On Fridays he volunteers as a

youth leader at Fusion Youth and

leads the group’s band alongside

his sister, Nesa.

He started learning the guitar

when he was nine and PJ is now

able to play a range of instruments

including the bass guitar,

drums and piano

“I try to learn as much as possible.

For the youth bands for example,

people come in and want

to learn and I’m able to teach

them any instrument,” he said.

PJ’s drumming ability helped

get Haeata band Proud Brown

to the Rockquest Tangata Beats

final in Auckland last year

and win the best vocals award.

This year, his duo PJ and Evile

came second in the Canterbury

Rockquest finals and first in the

region’s Tangata Beats final.

The win entered the duo into

the Tangata Beats national finals

- part of the Rockquest finals

held in Auckland on September

22.

“I’m definitely looking forward

to that ... just the whole atmosphere.”

For his future, PJ said he would

study at Ara Institute of Music

Arts with an aim to eventually

qualify as a music teacher.

“My dream is to travel the

world playing music, but if that

doesn’t work out, coming back

as a music teacher. You’re still

working with kids and I’d still

get to do what I love either way.”

Hornby club eyes up premier grade netball

• By Matt Salmons

PREMIER GRADE status is

the sights of the Hornby Netball

Club, which has turned 10.

The club has gone from

strength-to-strength since it

formed in 2008. But having

teams in premier one and two

grades has always alluded them.

Club president Lynlea Willan

said she hoped club teams could

again reach and maintain a spot

in both senior grade divisions of

the Christchurch Netball Centre

next season, and qualify for both

premier grade divisions for the

first time.

Club members marked their

10th anniversary with specially

made match balls and an eyecatching

drone photo.

Mrs Willan formed the club in

late 2008 after feeling dissatisfied

with the club she belonged to at

the time.

She said she saw a niche in

Hornby, which had lacked a club

since 2000, and thought with the

area having plenty of schools she

would be able to attract young

players to grow the club.

Beginning with 108 players and

12 teams in 2009, their first year

playing, Mrs Willan said she was

“blown away.”

“That wasn’t on my agenda, to

have 12 teams. I thought I might

get five at the most.

“Being in Hornby we had the

option to either play in Selwyn

or Christchurch netball centres.

I’d played in Selwyn so I thought

photo.

it would be easier to have a fresh

start in Christchurch,” she said.

Over the club’s life, numbers

had fluctuated, peaking at 28

teams last year, there were now

26 teams and around 250 players.

Mrs Willan said club members

were very loyal to the red and

white, the club’s colours.

“I really couldn’t be any

prouder. When I started it I had

no idea what to expect. I’m really,

really stoked.”

She said the club had forged

many relationships and

friendships and had a familyfocussed

atmosphere.

To celebrate the decade, club

sponsors Laing Properties and

L&A Apparel and Monograms

provided an anniversary match

ball to each team and a branded

netball to every girl in the Future

Ferns teams, aged between seven

and 10.

A group of around 85 club

members also met in Denton

Oval to form the number 10 and

the club initials with their bodies

for a photo, taken by a drone, to

use on their social media pages

and website.

IT’S SAFE to say after

championships.

The South Island championship

is held over seven weekends

Sam Wallace

at four different circuits in the

trophies and got on the

podium in every round.

He also won trophies

for fastest lap of the

year at three of the four

circuits – Ruapuna

Speedway, Highlands

Motorsport Park in

Central Otago, and Levels

Raceway in Timaru.

Wallace has achieved

this in only his second

season of racing and he plans to

compete again next season in

the same category to defend his

“My dad (Paul) and I were

big fans of it,” he said. “We’d

watch formula one and the V8s

together, but I hadn’t raced

anything until two years ago.”

Wallace’s grandfather David

raced Minis in the 1970s and

often did quarter-mile races in a

Boss 302 Mustang and a Datsun

240Z.

“For me, I have a belief that if

you love something, you should

FORMER BURNSIDE High

School student Liam James

has had his first

taste of international

competition at the

Fencing Junior

Commonwealth

Games in England.

The 20-yearold,

who lives in

Bishopdale, finished

34th overall at the

games.

“I think the result

was a fair reflection of

where I’ve been in the lead-up to

the event,” James said.

“I’ve had injuries to both my

knees and the competition was

very strong.”

The top-10 ranked Kiwi fencer

has a lifetime best ranking of No

3 in New Zealand.

He competes for The Fencing

Institute in Addington and

spends eight hours a week

training in his sport.

He said he has been busy

juggling a welding and

manufacturing course at Ara as

well.

Burnside HS fencer

“I’m not putting in as much

time as I would like given the

level that I am, but I’m very busy

and I’m hopeful I’ll get more

time when things

quieten down.”

The former social

footballer and sailor

said he took up the

sport in year 9 because

it looked interesting.

“I thought it could

be fun and from

there it’s gone on and

swallowed up my life,”

Liam James he said.

“It’s a sport of sharp

reflexes and reactions. It’s a very

physically demanding sport. It

can ruin knees, backs, hips and

ankles, just through the range

of movement and how much

time we spend in a crouched

position.”

James said his long-term

goal was to become the New

Zealand No 1, and he is busy

preparing for the South Island

championships in Dunedin at

the end of this month.

“It’s a great sport and in spite

of all of us being self-funded, it is

growing.”

Minister opens new buildings

A milestone was celebrated on August 3 when Hon Chris

Hipkins, Minister of Education, officially opened Hornby High

School’s new buildings.

The buildings, which are the first stage of the school’s

redevelopment, include the North and South blocks, house the

gymnasium, administration and technology.

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e

lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste. Kumusta.

Haere mai ki Te Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka.

Warm greetings to the Hornby High School

community.

We are finally in the first of our new buildings,

and students, staff and Board couldn’t be happier

and more proud to be a part of our amazing kura

Te Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka Hornby High School.

My most often used quotation at the moment is a

famous quote from Sir Winston Churchill who said

“We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape

us.” We spent a lot of time designing the buildings

for the new Te Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka, with the

intent that the buildings would support our school

vision as “A centre of creative excellence Te puna

auaha”. We placed the creative arts at the centre of

the specialist learning spaces, with sciences, foods,

and technologies surrounding them. With those

learning areas, those staff and students, working

alongside each other, we watch as they begin to see

the opportunities for cross-curriculum work, for the

injection of creativity into all aspects of our lives.

And in the midst of all this the rich life of students

at our kura continues. Whether it be NCEA or

basketball, chess or technology, Cantamath or

badminton, our amazing rangatahi, supported by

our dedicated and talented staff, experience a

richness that comes from the wealth of opportunity

and the breadth of our wonderful cross-section of

a beautifully multicultural community. They also

continue to experience wonderful successes in a

wide range of endeavours.

We continue to accelerate achievement: that is

we continue to increase learning at rates faster

than national averages, as students are engaged

with the manaiakalani pedagogy (Learn Create

Share) and the ability to magnify its impact using

Chromebooks. The achievement data for our

kura (and indeed across the whole of our Uru

Mānuka cluster) shows that we are accelerating

achievement in writing at twice national averages,

and in reading and mathematics at one and a half

times national averages. New initiatives in reading,

writing and mathematics continue to support this

acceleration.

We are also always conscious of the need for strong

relationships between students, between students

and staff, and whānau and the kura generally. We

are a “Positive Behaviour for Learning” school,

a restorative practice school, a KiVa school, all

because we understand the need for strong

positive relationships within our community. We

also understand that even with the most robust

systems and practices in the world, relationships

don’t always go smoothly, so it is vital that we

continue to pay attention to relationships. Strong

relationships are built when all concerned avoid a

culture of entitlement. Strong relationships are built

from collaboration, not from confrontation. Strong

relationships rely on us looking for common ground

on which to go forward. If we are all truly focused

on the best interests of our rangatahi, then we

will all look for opportunities for that whānau kura

collaboration. Join us on this journey.

Please follow my thinking on issues that are both

specific to Hornby High School and also of more

general educational interest on my Principal’s

blog, “Whakatauki: He waka eke noa”, after

all, we are indeed all in this together – https://

whakataukihewakaekenoa.blogspot.co.nz/.

Japanese exchange successful

On a bright sunny Saturday morning, ten students and two teachers

gathered at Christchurch Airport for what would prove to be an

exciting, action-packed and thoroughly enjoyable two-week cultural

exchange trip to our sister school, Tokiwagi Gakuen, in Sendai City,

northern Japan.

Clockwise from above: Farewell party, Statue of horseman and school group, Kyudo (Japanese

archery), and students creating and tasting local foods with their host students.

We all returned to New Zealand having benefited greatly from our

experiences.

We look forward to returning the favour when the next group of

Tokiwagi students come to Hornby next March, after which we will

begin planning our next trip to Tokiwagi in 2020.

LEADERSHIP: Amy Rendel will be the most experienced woman in the New

Zealand indoor cricket squad to play Australia next year.

PHOTO: INDOOR CRICKET NZ​

Rendel gets ready to

take down Aussies in

transtasman series

INDOOR CRICKETER Amy Rendel

wants to break the drought against

Australia.

Rendel, who plays for Hornby, has never

beaten the team from across the Tasman

in four campaigns with the New Zealand

side.

At 32, the former Canterbury Magicians

fast bowler is the most experienced player

named in the transtasman series which

takes place next year.

She has just finished another titlewinning

indoor cricket season with

Canterbury.

“We’ve never beaten the Aussies and

that’s a motivator,” she said.

A keen outdoor cricketer from the age

of five, she started playing indoor cricket

as a 20-year-old to fill in for a friend’s

team.

“Initially I thought ‘there’s no way I’m

playing that’ but I ended up filling in for a

game and then a few weeks later I played

club nationals and really grew to love the

game.”

She has been part of eight national

championship wins with Canterbury.

Rendel said the key to her success in

indoor cricket is her ability to bat, bowl

and field.

“You have to be able to do all three to

a decent standard, otherwise you’ll get

found out,” she said.

“I’ve turned into an opening batsman,

so just like a normal game, it’s my job

to get us off to a good start and build

a foundation, find the twos and lay a

platform for the other players to lift the

run rate in the other partnerships,” she

said.

“You have to play the ball really late and

work angles,” she said.

“In the field, you have to be athletic

and able to be nimble enough to get the

ball as quickly as possible and keep it off

the net.”

Rendel said as long as her body does

not let her down, she is keen to continue

playing for as long as possible.

The Australian series will be played in

New Zealand next year and remains her

driving force.

RISING STARS The Christchurch United Academy under-13 team won both the

Mainland Football Premier League and the Christchurch International Cup this

year.

PHOTO: CHRISTCHURCH UNITED ​

Age group titles rolling

in for Christchurch

United FC Academy

CHRISTCHURCH United FC Academy

has had an unprecedented run of success

with their under-13, under-14 and

under-15 teams all claiming Mainland

Football championships in premier

divisions.

The success of the academy’s teams

has been an affirmation of the player

development work. The professional

coaches at Christchurch United

have made this a priority over the

past six seasons at the state-of-theart

Christchurch Football Centre in

Yaldhurst.

Academy director Colin Williamson

said the investment in quality coaching is

really starting to pay off. This investment

was initially made through the

Christchurch Football Academy and then

the Christchurch United Football Club

after the two merged in 2016.

“Our club president Slava Meyn started

the academy programme back in 2014 to

develop the best possible players for New

Zealand Football. And their individual

and team success at the local level is a

sign that we are on the right track,” said

Williamson.

The Dutch coach arrived at the start

of the current season after a long career

as an academy coach with professional

clubs like PSV Eindhoven in the

Netherlands. He has further improved the

structures and planning of development

programmes for Christchurch United’s

players and coaches.

Williamson works closely with

Christchurch United first team coach

Fernando Lambert, and both coaches also

look after one of the academy teams.

Williamson said the basis of each team’s

success has been the technical and tactical

development of players.

The under-13 and under-10 teams

recently won the Christchurch

International Cup and the success has not

gone unnoticed.

“We are being approached for several

tournaments in New Zealand and

SKILLS: Riley Caswell has received

glowing reviews.

The under-13 side will play in a highcalibre

Auckland tournament next

month.

Two older Christchurch United

players have already been exposed to

overseas experience, with 17-year-old

Riley Caswell and Hamish Cooper

spending time with Australian club

Sydney FC.

Caswell received glowing reviews after

his week with the club’s first team, while

Cooper is currently training with the

Sydney FC Academy.

Williamson is pleased Christchurch

United can offer players opportunities

that may not have been available a few

years ago.

“And then it is up to the players to take

those opportunities. Our academy can

prepare the players the best we can, but

it will be fascinating to see how many

of these youngsters will be able to push

on and represent Canterbury and New

Zealand in the future.”

FOCUS ON HEALTH

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and

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 and the

lowest scores on tests measuring short-term memory, concentration

and brain performance. Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier brains

and 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 and declining cognitive

function. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health,

regulation of mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and repair, and

prevention of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that

is known to cause damage and 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 and other drugs

further reduce B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in the form of

Methylcobalamin sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the mouth

and thru bypassing the digestive tract have been shown to effectively

raise B12 levels in the body.

Further detailed information is available from the Natural

Health Advisers at Marshall’s

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.

Grape seeds shown

to have remarkable

health benefits!

According to researchers grape seeds may

hold the potential to treat and prevent many

devastating disorders. The seeds have been

found to contain many powerful antioxidant

that have been shown to support the natural

healing process and even slow the aging process.

Grape Seed Extract (GSE) has been shown to

reduce inflammation, pain, increase cell energy,

protect protein structures and increase collagen

production. The powerful antioxidants can

tone and strengthen the blood vessels, improve

blood flow, making it valuable for circulatory

disorders of all kinds, including varicose veins,

haemorrhoids, hardening of the arteries and impaired blood flow

to the brain. It is excellent for most skin conditions with many

noticing the skin becomes smoother.

GSE offers a natural alternative for many people with

hypertension. (High Blood Pressure) Higher B/P puts more

stress on organs and can lead to atherosclerosis (hardening of the

arteries) and increased risk of heart disease and strokes.

Recent studies on people with elevated B/P found GSE to

significantly lower B/P but with no effect on people with normal

B/P. Animal studies have shown GSE to improve heart function,

reduce damage caused by heart attacks and prevent arterial plaque.

A growing number of studies show that GSE has powerful

anticancer properties, can help balance blood sugar, improve

arthritis and protect brain cells. It may prove vital in the treatment

of brain disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Numerous studies on GSE show it can help support

our good health and prevent many degenerative

diseases. Further detailed information is available

Ear Health Canterbury has been

providing a microscopic ear cleaning

service in Canterbury for 19 years

From small beginnings in 1999

where monthly clinics were held in the

Christchurch Hearing Association in

Beveridge Street the service expanded

rapidly as clients discovered and appreciated

the benefits of micro suction technology.

Twelve months later clinics had increased

to 5 days a week and with the help of more

trained Registered nurses and Reception

staff clinics opened in Rangiora, Ashburton

Timaru Temuka and Waimate.

In 2004 the clinic moved with the

Hearing Association to larger premises at

275 Riccarton Road. They remain there

today offering a Monday to Saturday service

and a popular and busy mobile service to

Retirement Villages, Rest Home residents

and to people with mobility difficulties in

their private homes.

While a weekly clinic is still held in

Ashburton, the South Canterbury clinics

are now under new Management.

Many conditions affecting the outer

ear canal can be treated and monitored at

Ear Health including infections, relieving

impacted wax and removal of foreign

bodies. Preventative education is also

offered and for those with hearing aids due

to sensorineural hearing loss Ear Health has

accredited ACC and War Pension funding

This safe, accessible, affordable ear care is

provided to all age groups in a client focused

environment with the nurses working

collaboratively with General Practitioners,

Audiologists, Hearing Therapists and

Maintaining good ear hygiene has

many benefits. It can improve hearing and

improve the effectiveness of hearing

aids and reduce the incidence of aural

infections. Most importantly, this then

The

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.
