District Plan

change

receives

little

feedback

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

LITTLE FEEDBACK has been

given over a potential change to

the District Plan which would

help coastal residents struggling

to get resource and building

consents.

The Department of the

Prime Minister and Cabinet

has released a survey asking

if residents agree with a

draft proposal to change the

District Plan through Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Minister Megan Woods.

The changes would allow

for Southshore, South New

Brighton and Redcliffs

properties in the High Flood

Hazard Management Area to

build or renovate houses, where

it otherwise would have been

near impossible.

But as of last week, only 37

submissions had been made on

the proposal since November 9.

The responses received from

the survey will inform Dr

Wood’s decision on whether to

use her section 71 powers to

change the policy in the District

Plan. Christchurch Coastal

Residents United group deputy

chairman Warwick Schaffer said

it takes time for people to get

these things done.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Psychologist one step closer

In Brief

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ANOTHER STEP has been

taken to help bring a disaster

psychologist into Dallington

to investigate post-earthquake

issues.

THe Coastal-Burwood

Community Board held a

seminar to discuss what needs

to be done to bring the plan into

fruition.

It was decided the board’s

community development

adviser Natalie Dally will talk

to volunteers

and leaders in

Dallington as

well as areas

including

Southshore

and Avondale

to gauge

key social

Linda Stewart isolation

issues.

Board chairwoman Kim

Money said the aim was to find

out how the communities would

like to be engaged in the process

and what they felt would be the

best approach.

It is after the Dallington

Community Trust asked

for funding from the board to

have a psychologist look at issues

in the area and develop

a wellness programme.

The programme developed

for Dallington could set a

precedent for other isolated

areas.

Trustee and long-term

resident David Collins said it is

good the board is engaging with

the community.

“If they are able to highlight

the areas for a disaster psychologist

to concentrate on well that

is also showing due diligence,”

he said.

Pegasus Post reported last

month Australian disaster

recovery expert and psychologist

Dr Rob Gordon could be

brought in to investigate.

Trust chairwoman and board

member Linda Stewart said a

decision has not yet been made

but it did “float some strategies”

at the seminar.

She said the board is open to

different people who could be

brought in and how the issue

could be handled.

But she said she was supportive

of bringing Dr Gordon over

as the Australians were “light

years ahead” in terms of civil

defence and disaster management.

Ms Stewart said it is hoped

key people in the community

such as Avonside community

centre co-ordinator Betty Chapman,

church leaders, and Dallington

trust members could be

Trust has asked

brought together to learn from

Dr Gordon.

“I don’t want to bring him

backwards and forwards I want

a oncer so we know how to do

it,” Ms Stewart said.

But Mr Collins said the trust

has to bear in mind bringing in

a psychologist will come out of

ratepayer funding in the longrun.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

WHERE WE HAVE BEEN AND

WHERE WE ARE HEADING…….

McMaster & Heap Vets officially started

nearly 20 years ago on 1st April 1999 (April

Fools Day). Steve and I had wanted our

own Practice because we wanted to work

together to create something special and

because we wanted to be present at all our

sons sports fixtures and school events and

not miss out on a single thing they were

doing. I grew up with parents that showed

up to everything which I loved so I wanted

our boys to experience that childhood.

We had a choice of three Practices to buy,

and looking back definitely made the right

choice. Little did we know it was the start of

something really great.

The initial Practice was

an old converted house

situated in our present

day carpark. It was then

named Rozens Vet Clinic.

It was small but worked

okay initially until we grew

and we were constantly

running out of cages to

house all our patients. Cats

were in cages in the vets

office and dogs tied up in

the treatment room. Our

very first day Steve and I

worked 12 hours straight.

Our first clients were

people we still see now

almost 20 years later,

with their children and

grandchildren now clients

of ours. We had just three nurses initially who

worked part time hours. We operated on a

card system and were forever losing cards

thanks to a dyslexic nurse who didn’t know

she was dyslexic. Every time it rained our

entire carpark flooded and we had families of

ducks taking up residence. Our cattery was

in the garage. Our sterile surgery was the

size of a bathroom and we processed xrays

in the toilet. There was no noise control or

ventilation – pet hates of Steve’s. Our two

young sons, Connor (now 21) and Dylan

(now 18) were often seen playing Thomas

the Tank engine trains in the waiting room

entertaining the clients. We were a family

and we absolutely loved it. Our boys only

have fond memories of our Practice and our

early days starting out.

We worked hard, every weekend in fact, and

fairly quickly built up a strong loyal following

of clients. Steve seeing Ophthalmology

referrals also increased clients through our

doors. We saw our clients out of hours, in

weekends and clients without appointments

could just walk in without much of a wait. We

loved solving peoples problems and treating

their pets and we felt privileged to be in the

position we were – we made a real difference

and we got huge satisfaction from doing so.

We both knew this was what we were meant

to be doing. I remember being a three year

old and only ever wanting to Practice as a

vet. I grew up on a small farm in Halswell

surrounded by all sorts of animals and I

ended up with my own flock of pet lambs.

My dads best friend was Dave Marshall

(Marshall and Pringle Vets) and he was very

influential at fostering my love and passion

for animals from a very early age. From age

five I saw Practice with Dave and never once

thought about being anything else.

We realised our clinic was outgrowing us

fast so as soon as the house next door

came up for sale we

purchased it. We moved

into our current building

in 2008 and its been a

wonderful practice to

work in – spacious, light,

well ventilated and well

designed. It has allowed

us to treat and care for

patients properly, see a

lot more patients and

attract quality staff. We

have grown a lot since

those early days with

seven vets, 13 nursing

staff and one practice

manager.

So this comes to an

exciting piece of news.

We have just been

granted council consent

to add a large new addition to our existing

Practice, allowing us to provide more

veterinary services and have more room to

work in. Believe it or not we are running out

of consult rooms, operating theatres and

dog hospitalisation facilities. The proposed

building is being tendered now and should

start work early next year.

We feel we have a very good reputation for

providing excellent professional services

and care to patients in our community. We

are never complacent and always strive

to be better and do things differently. We

always want to welcome people through our

doors because we truly believe we will help

them and their pets. We care about all our

people. We will always be a privately owned

family business providing the best care and

treatment possible, excellent communication,

flexibility and understanding of our clients

situation and show kindness and respect to

pets and people.

We firmly believe if you GIVE lots you receive

LOTS.

We will keep you posted on all the new

exciting developments.

Demolition starts at North Avon church

New facility

to be built

early next year

• By Louis Day

DEMOLITION OF the North

Avon Baptist Church is under

way and construction of a new

church and community facility

is expected to start early next

year.

The church building on 101

North Avon Rd was opened in

1952 and was damaged in the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Churchgoers said their final

goodbyes to the building on

November 4 before demolition

got under way last week.

Delta Community Support

Trust services co-ordinator Ian

Burn said the church was in

desperate need of a rebuild.

“The floor is on a slope

so it can only be used in an

auditorium context. You can’t

play basketball on it, you can’t

host dance parties on it. There’s

dirty big cracks down the side

of the building and it has a

restricted use classification from

the council.”

Mr Burn said the new

facility will be able to better

accommodate the needs of

PROGRESS: An artist’s impression of the new North Avon

Baptist Church and community facility, which will be replace

the community and could be

up and running as early as

November next year.

“The current church does

have a kitchen but it is a fairly

typical church kitchen. As a

trust, we feed two and a half

thousand people each year with

low incomes and disadvantages.

We are rebuilding the facility

with that wider community in

mind rather than just a church

building.”

The new facility will have

a worship space, a cafe and a

range of community spaces.

Delta Community House,

which sits next to North Avon

Baptist Church, will also be

demolished once the new

facility is finished. The Crossway

Community Church will build

its new church facility on the

site once it has been cleared.

Mr Burn said Crossway’s

facility would be bigger than its

previous one and would include

an area for the community to

play basketball.

The two new buildings will be

merged into one and will share

a courtyard with a children’s

playground.

Mr Burn said church services

would continue at Delta Community

House while North

Avon Baptist Church was

demolished.

Sustainability key

to organic farming

There’s something for

everyone in the realm of

organic farming but as far

as Bill Martin is concerned,

it’s all about sustainability.

The Training College

Manager at Lincoln

University’s Biological

Husbandry Unit Organics

Trust (BHU) is happy to see

a surge in enthusiasm for

organic food production

as younger generations

become more aware of

environmental concerns.

He says the growing

popularity of organic

production in recent years

means that graduates are

now taking what they have

learned into a broader

range of sectors.

“It’s not just about

growing, wholesaling

and retailing food anymore. They’re

going into schools and teaching primary

and secondary schoolers about the

importance of sustainable farming and

gardening and really starting to embed the

philosophy into the education system.”

As far as conventional agricultural

practices are concerned, he says farmers

should be encouraged to optimise their

production, rather than maximise it at the

expense of the environment.

“We need to change our agricultural

paradigm and re-evaluate our priorities.”

Mr Martin says those interested in a

career in organics should enrol in the

one-year Diploma in Agri-Food Production

course, which is open to students either

with or without university entrance.

Introduced last year, it includes Tikanga

and Mahinga Kai components and can

lead to employment in organic primary

production or other sectors related

to organics, especially education and

hospitality.

“The course offers a good grounding

in the principles of organic agriculture,

teaching the philosophies and histories

of organics and providing practical

knowledge of how they are applied,” Mr

Martin says.

Apply now for the Diploma in Organic

Agri-Food Production and begin studying

in February 2019.

Having a strong

beach.

Wheels on the Bus, these lyrics

were sung by residents of Diana

Isaac Retirement Village to

Environment Canterbury.

The residents have been

fighting since March to have the

No 44 bus stop at their village

after Environment Canterbury

decided to re-route the Orbiter

which previously ran there.

ECan said last month it would

not re-route the No 44 through

some residential streets, leaving

the nearest bus stop 1km away.

Representatives met with the

residents on Wednesday to hear

their concerns over the decision.

ECan senior manager public

transport Stewart Gibbon said

was “very pleased” with the

entertaining song.

“It was very well executed,

and great to see the residents

had a sense of humour, balanced

with their real sense of concern

and advocacy to retain a public

transport link.”

He said ECan would continue

to work with residents to find a

solution for the “mid and longterm.”

Resident Murray Lennox said

he wrote the “little ditty” in an

effort to keep the meeting light

and friendly.

“I’ve written a number of

poems. It’s become a traditional

thing here on a Friday that if I

turn up to morning tea without

a poem then they’re asking questions,”

he said.

“It was just to keep the mood

light and bring a bit of hilarity

to it.”

He said the decision not to reroute

the No 44 left residents and

staff at the rest home “stranded.”

“A lot of us are still mobile,

but the day will come for a lot

of folks here where we will no

longer be able to get about as we

used to.”

He said the residents had come

up with options which were

presented to ECan, including

installing a turning bay on

Philpotts Rd for the No 44,

and implementing a small bus

which could operate on an “ad

hock basis” to service the rest

home.

“They’re still exploring those

options, they have to discuss that

with city council and planning.

We just have to get

through all this red tape,” he

said.

“One of our residents who is in

his 90s asked if while they were

trying to work those things out,

why couldn’t they just bring the

Orbiter down to Innes Rd and

back up along Philpotts Rd until

they have worked out what else

they can do . . . there was hearty

approval from the residents, I

can tell you.”

AN OFF-DUTY nurse who came

to the rescue of a man choking on

an apricot at Auckland Airport

has been recognised with a police

award.

Waimairi Beach’s

appreciation from the

Police and members

of the public from across

the Auckland region

will be presented with

the awards for acts of

bravery.

During Easter time this year,

Mrs Hall was waiting in the Koru

lounge with her husband Tony

at the airport after their flight to

Perth had been delayed by five

hours.

It was then when a man began

to choke on an apricot that the

Travis Medical Centre practice

nurse’s quick-thinking was unexpectedly

put to the test.

“We were sitting there and I

had my back to the gentleman

and Tony said: “I think he needs

some help Shell,” she said.

She said she went over while

expel an apricot from a choking

man’s airway.

“I went over and obviously he

choked on something. We put

him back down, nothing came

out of that manoeuvre.

“There was no pulse

and we started CPR. I

started chest compressions

and the other

man started mouth to

mouth,” Mrs Hall

said.

An airway, and ambu

bag and one shock from

a defibrillator were used

on the man.

Mrs Hall said an airway was

inserted but it looked like the

man was beginning to choke so

it was taken out and the man

vomited out an apricot.

She said it all happened so

quickly and was a blur.

“In the end it was a really great

outcome and then the ambulance

crew arrived and police arrived

and he was sitting up and talking,”

she said.

While Mrs Hall had been in

similar situations in controlled

environments such as a hospital,

it never happened to her in a nonmedical

venue.

“It certainly got the most attention,”

she said.

Another First, 3D

Digital Dentures

News

from Duchenne

Not ones to follow the pack, Duchenne

Denture Specialists have always been a

company of firsts:

- First to bring to you Duchenne’s Digital

3D Denture system

- First to introduce suction dentures to New

Zealand

- The only state-of-the-art laboratory of its

kind in New Zealand

- First to bring the injection moulding

technique to NZ. A process that gives

greater strength and a superior fit to their

denture products.

John Batchelor, founder and owner of

Duchenne, has long been at the forefront

of this industry, and has been working with

international software companies such as

3Shape to develop cutting-edge technology

since 2012.

Now, once again, Duchenne are excited

to be bringing the latest advances in 3D

Denture Technology to the South Island.

Over the past three years there have been

major breakthroughs in printing and

milling dental technology, which allow

us to 3D print a preliminary denture that

patients can literally take home and try.

Patients are more involved in the process

and can see their dentures on screen

before they are made. This technology also

produces a final denture that is superior to

anything that has come before.

They are currently the only company in

the South Island to use this process – a

significant step ahead as it offers superior

fit and strength. A denture produced on

the PM7, when used in conjunction with

Dr Abe’s Suction Effective Mandibular

technique, produces the most comfortable

and high performance denture currently

available.

John Batchelor is one of only 35 trainers

world-wide in this technique, and the only

one in New Zealand. He and his team at

Duchenne Denture Services are proud to be

able to offer you this leading technology.

CHRISTMAS CHEER: Celebration Centre Church’s Bridget Kramer, Gregg

LeRoux, Lizzy Kramer and Abraham Fonmoa are helping make Christmas

brighter by giving out as many food parcels as possible to families in need.

Food parcels to brighten

families’ Christmas

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A CHURCH in Wainoni

is planning to deliver

as many food parcels as

possible this year to help

make Christmas a little

brighter for struggling

families in the east.

The Celebration Centre

Church is collecting food

parcels as part of its annual

“Giving Living” project

to help families living in

genuine hardship.

The church’s pastoral

team member Gregg Le

Roux said it is one of the

ways it can align with what

is a very real need in the

community.

“We hear all about the

hardship that we know is

in families around and in

our communities . . . as

a church we believe that

giving and generosity to

others is and should be a

lifestyle and is just part of

who we are,” he said.

TWO carefully

handcrafted fales,

modelled on traditional

Pasifika buildings, were

delivered to Samoan

pre-schools in Linwood

and Aranui recently.

And they have received

positive feedback from the

most important recipients

– the children.

Carpentry students from

the Ara Institute of Canterbury’s

Dual Enrolment

programme built the two

structures over about five

months while attending

the tertiary institute one

day a week.

Māori trades training

students helped to deliver

the fales to Mapusaga Fou

Pre School in Linwood and

Tino e Tasi Pre School in

Aranui.

Children and teachers

were delighted with the

gifts.

The trades students benefited

from practising their

skills building the fales and

The church finds out

about families in need

through networks including

the three community

pre-schools it runs, Mums

& Bubs groups and youth

groups.

The project has been

running annually for about

six years and anyone can

nominate a family they

believe would benefit.

It started after Mr Le

Roux and his wife ran a

leadership programme in

the church and the project

was formed as part of the

course’s work.

Last year the church

delivered food parcels to

400 families in need.

Mr Le Roux said the

church will do everything

it can to get as many food

parcels as possible.

“If we get 400 food

parcels again I would say

fantastic, if we get more

than that then great,” he

said.

Haeata Community College

and other schools in

the area will be involved in

the project.

Mr Le Roux said his understanding

is the schools

will encourage their families

to contribute if they

can and then nominate

and distribute food parcels

to those in need.

“While a food parcel is

not everything, it helps to

probably take off the pressure

in a lot of other areas

that are demanding with

people,” Mr Le Roux said.

The food parcels will be

delivered by December 16.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Bid to conserve water over summer

THE CITY council has warned

too much water use this summer

could slow down its well-head

upgrade work and lead to water

shortages and a reduced capacity

to fight fires.

As the temperature climbs,

the city council is encouraging

residents to start doing their

bit to conserve water and help

reduce demand on the district’s

water supply network.

Water Supply Improvement

Programme manager Helen

Beaumont said the issue wasn’t

the amount of water available or

the size of the supply network,

but rather the network’s ability to

deliver water when usage spiked.

“When demand for water

is high, we can only supply so

much through the network. The

pumps, pipes and reservoirs can

only deliver a certain amount

of water at any one time, and if

people use too much while we

have wells off-line for upgrades,

there could be a pressure loss

in the system, shortages, or not

enough to fight fires.

“Ninety-five per cent of the

time, we only need to use about

half of the wells and pump

stations available in the network.

It’s only a problem at times

during summer, when demand

for water is at its highest.”

SAVE: The city council is encouraging hand-held watering only for lawns and gardens on

alternate days between 9pm and 7am in a bid to save water. (Right) – The new water dial found

at ccc.govt.nz/wateruse shows Christchurch’s residential water use for the previous day.

Ms Beaumont said the district’s

water use was already higher

than this time last year so it

was important people got the

message now.

“We need people to come on

board with the campaign to

conserve our water. We don’t

want to impose restrictions, we

want to give people a chance to

change their thinking and make

some small changes now to their

water usage.

As part of its conservation

campaign, the city council has

created an online water dial –

available at ccc.govt.nz/wateruse

– which shows the city’s daily

water usage against the target for

summer.

The city council is encouraging

hand-held watering only for

lawns and gardens on alternate

days between 9pm and 7am,

reducing laundry loads, and

keeping personal showers to

5min.

Ms Beaumont said water usage

this summer would have a big

impact on the city council’s

ability to upgrade its well-heads

and end chlorination sooner.

“We can only work on well

heads when they’re not in use. So

the less water used this summer,

the faster we can upgrade the

well heads and the sooner we

can end water chlorination in

Christchurch.”

What’s your view on the

Residential Unit Overlay

District Plan Changes

Section 71 Proposal?

Let us know your views on the Proposal to use section 71 of the Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Act 2016 to make amendments to the

Christchurch District Plan.

The amendments would:

• provide clarity and support to areas (known as the Residential Unit

Overlay) where the risk of flooding is predominantly from sea level rise

• permit people with vacant sites (where houses have been demolished

since the earthquakes) in the Residential Unit Overlay to rebuild

houses of a similar size to what was there without requiring a resource

consent.

The Proposal, developed by Christchurch City Council, has been

submitted to the Minister for Greater Christchurch Regeneration who is

inviting your views.

Anyone can make a written comment, which must be received by

5.00pm, Monday, 26 November 2018.

The Proposal can be viewed with more information, and written

comments made online at: www.dpmc.govt.nz/residential-unit-overlay

Also, the Proposal can be viewed and written comment forms are

available at Christchurch City Council service centres and libraries, and

the main office of Selwyn and Waimakariri District Councils during normal

business hours.

HIGH SCHOOL

ENCOURAGING EXCELLENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY

Good Citizenship Award.

The Avon Shirley Masonic Lodge

Good Citizenship Award.

This is a highly prized award, presented to two of our senior students

that recognize outstanding service to the school.

The Lodge annually presents this Award to two students who, on recommendations of staff, best

exemplify the qualities of good citizenship. To be selected for the Citizenship Award a student

has consistently demonstrated the school values of Challenge, Achievement, Responsibility and

Empathy through actions which include service and leadership.

staff members co-lead our 2018 Senior Student Executive team. This often meant needing to

use tact and a positive attitude to instil in the team, as well as the feeling of being listened to,

valued and supported. Niko has organised a number of events and his given freely of his freely to

assist in the organisation of school music concerts and tours up and down the South Island. Niko

willingly mentors younger musicians and show younger students the skills needed to put on a

lighting and sound show.

In Niko’s own community he provides sound and lighting expertise at a number of events,

including weekly church services and the Parklands ‘Christmas in the Park’.

Niko will be remembered for his significant service to the school community. We wish Niko all the

best for his future success as he prepares for an engineering degree at University of Canterbury.

Our two award winners have decided that the generous gift of $500 from the Lodge will go to

FREESET, a global charity for women who have very limited employment opportunities.

Our first recipient of this prestigious

award is Georgia List:

Georgia is an exemplary role model

for other students needing learning

assistance, demonstrating that with

support, focus and determination,

anything and everything is possible.

Her subject strengths are Hauora

(Health) and Geography. Georgia has

been a role model for other students

in a number of class activities, notably

in performance and sport. She has

participated in our school productions

and due to her commitment and

reliability, has developed into a valued

and respected cast member. Her

outstanding results as a swimming

star for Special Olympics have been

regularly noted at our annual Colours

Awards Assembly.

Georgia demonstrates service in many

ways around the school including

regular set up of lunchtime activities for our students. She has taken on a Peer Support Leadership

role, demonstrating admirable empathy and tautoko (support) for Year 9 supported learning

students. Georgia also offers her help in the library and is forever keen to learn new skills. She is

focused and has grown in confidence by encouraging students to use our library for different

activities from study to board games. A consistent helper at Open Evening, Report Evening and

events which require students to represent the school with pride and respect.

Outside of school Georgia volunteers as a support person for disabled young people during the

holidays.

Georgia is a confident young woman who completes tasks with humility, without realising just

how much of an inspiration and role she is to others. We wish Georgia all the best in her future

endeavours as she prepares for an early childcare course at Vision College.

Year Level Prize Winners 2018

Our Supported Learning Sportsperson of the Year goes to Casey Williams who received the Paul

Judith

Bell writes

about the

loss of Gavin Britt who

made traditional Maori

instruments for the school

THIS MONTH Chisnallwood

music has had joy and sadness.

As I write this, we mourn

the loss of Gavin Britt, a longstanding

friend of the school,

maker of taonga pūoro (Maori

instruments) and all the many,

wonderful carvings which are

rich in local history.

He never stopped championing

for their use in education and

we are grateful for the influence

he had, and for the passion and

knowledge he shared.

Our jazz and Irish bands

have been privileged to get

opportunities to engage in the

community frequently this term

and local performances include

playing for the Parkland’s Ladies

group, Parkland’s Christmas

in the Park, New Brighton

Christmas Parade, Alpine View

and Diana Isaac retirement

villages, the Eastern Schools

Rotary Honour Roll dinner and

at Gavin’s funeral.

A rock band, Ricochet, will be

performing at the Rawhiti School

Fair and all our rock and other

bands had a celebration last week

at the pop-up venue, steered by

ex-Chisnallwood pupil Michael

Bell, Little Andromeda in

Gloucester St.

Our band celebrations this

year have included two jazz

bands achieving gold and

silver at the high school event

Jazzquest, seven bands taking

part in Rockquest and Bandquest

with seven Bandquest awards,

one of them at a national level.

Meanwhile, our orchestra

has been part of the secondary

schools’ orchestra festival, and

the choir part of both the voices

festival and the primary schools’

music festival.

Other musical high

points this year have included

the jazz and Irish band tour

to the steam punk festival,

Readers respond to an

article on the Prestons

subdivision speed limit

being lowered to 40km/h

Russell Parnell – My wife

and I are at a loss as to why the

city council even bothered to ask

residents in the subdivision their

opinion on changing

the limit to 40km/h

or leaving it as is at

50km/h when it seems

painfully clear that the

city councillors were

hell bent of changing

the subdivision speed

limit to 40km/h, regardless of

any residents views.

Tim Sintes’ comment that the

streets tend to make people drive

at a slower rate is exactly correct.

Roads other than the two main

thoroughfares, Te Rito St and Te

Korari St, are narrower so selfregulating

in the speed.

Travelling along the two main

wider roads as noted above,

vision for drivers is noticeably

clearer being of a more open

view, but again self-regulating in

speeds. From our driving along

Te Rito and Te Korari Sts many

times to maintain land

or view housing, we

have never encountered

any dangerous or

potentially dangerous

situations. In fact all

drivers, including the

many operating trade

vehicles, treat other road users

with respect in slowing as

required. To change the above

mentioned two streets to 40km/h

in particular, could prove to be

worse than simply leaving them

as is at 50km/h. Frustration

could result from road users

not regularly travelling through

the subdivision and thus, for

example, could pass a slower

than 40km/h vehicle unsafely.

Some drivers always travel less

than a speed limit wherever they

are, so at the limit of 40km/h,

a driver could be down to

30km/h. The most ironic thing

SAFETY:

Speed

limits

at the

Prestons

subdivision

will be

changed

to 40km/h.

of changing the speed limit to

40km/h, spending lots of money

initially with ongoing costs when

not wanted by the majority, is

why pick on that area in the

first place? We currently live in

Mairehau Rd, a 50km/h area,

which is more like a 60km/h

to in excess of a 100km/h road.

There has been some bad crashes

over time – one recently near

Burwood Hospital and not

once have we seen a mobile

speed camera vehicle, police

checkpoint set up, or any form

of policing speeds. Police car

speeds (car chases or call-outs)

in particular along Mairehau Rd

are frighteningly and excessively

fast most times day or night, the

latter the worst times.

So it is basically unbelievable

Prestons has been singled out

and chosen for quote “a bit of an

experiment.” Comments would

be welcomed.

Sally Walker – 50km/h

is totally adequate. Would the

city council’s 40km/h include

Prestons Rd? Please outline the

route that the change would

affect. This would have a significant

bearing on the decision.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

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.

Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Collagen

The Body’s Youth Protein

Collagen is the primary

protein in the body. It is a

major component of skin,

hair, nails, muscles, tendons,

ligaments, joint cartilage,

bones, gums, teeth, eyes, and

blood vessels.

In fact collagen is

the primary structural

component for all tissue in the

body, providing the strength

and resilience associated with

youth, beauty and wellness.

The body’s natural collagen

production decreases with age resulting in

many signs of aging, such as flaccid skin,

wrinkles, ligament and tendon injuries and

aching joints. Collagen supplementation

is one of the most fundamental things a

person can do to prevent premature aging

and promote youthful vitality.

NEOCELL are the industry leaders in

research on collagen supplementation.

Through advanced research they have

perfected a way to hydrolyse collagen and

effectively reduce its molecular weight this

improving the absorption of collagen into

the blood stream by over 90%.

A clinical study on NEOCELL

COLLAGEN has shown skin hydration to

increase an average of 21% and up to 50%,

with 92% of test subjects experiencing

firmer, softer skin. Most people taking

NEOCELL COLLAGEN reported seeing

visible improvements within two weeks.

Collagen supplementation provides the

nutrients necessary to support the body’s

collagen supply. It can help reduce fine lines

and wrinkles and improve skin elasticity,

support building of strong bones and teeth,

strengthen the nails and hair, and is vital for

muscle growth, It also assists weight loss by

helping burn fat for energy, promotes wound

healing by supporting the regeneration of

healthy tissue as well as help support overall

health.

NEOCELL COLLAGEN and further

information is available from the Natural

Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health &

Natural Therapy, 101Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are always

happy to help!

up and relax on lazy afternoons. The formal

lounge has a gas fire and pelmet lights for

ambience with spotlights for art work. French

wrap around the property and comprise a

stunning ornamental grape vine covering

the pergola, a verandah, a neatly landscaped

garden, a sheltered bricked patio and areas

of decking. The upstairs hardwood roof deck

provides you with an abundance of incredibly

private backdrops where you can soak up the

sun from sunrise to sunset and the serene

surrounds.

Accommodation is offered by four

bedrooms which share three bathrooms, and

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking t operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

Mr Mora said the community
