GOOD CAUSE: Cashmere High School teachers raised money for men’s health issues during Movember with themed dress up

days like medieval Monday.

Playing dress up for Movember

Movember dress-up fixture

started in 2014, when a group of

moustache-laden men decided

to dress up as mid-80s maths

teachers.

Since then, the group decided

that every day of the final week

of November they would dress

up, with each theme relating to

moustaches.

“We’ve honoured themes such

as Miami Vice, heavy metal,

Victorian times, and Woodstock,

as well as individuals like Tom

Selleck, Billy T James and Ned

Flanders over the years,” said

deputy principal Blair Johnson.

to move out

• By Julia Evans

A SPREYDON woman who had

five two-storey townhouses built

less than 1m away from her house

is packing up and moving.

Bolton Ave homeowner Kim

Mehlhopt said she has sold her

property and will be moving out

in the next two weeks.

“Just fed up with noise and

parking issues.

All that came

with it, all we

knew would come

with it,” she said.

Last year, it

was revealed

JSJ Investments

next door to Ms

Mehlhopt’s home of 15 years – the

garage less than 1m away.

But situations like Ms

Mehlhopt’s may be avoided in the

future.

City council staff are

investigating how tightlypacked

housing is effecting the

community and whether it needs

to ask Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister Megan

Woods to change the District

Plan. “The work into high density

housing will be relevant,” city

DRY JULY, Movember . . . all of those

themed sort of events can be fairly tedious

and repetitive in my humble view.

I will point out though, that doesn’t diminish

the great causes these events raise

money for.

But I was amused and impressed by the photo reporter

Sophie Cornish found regarding Cashmere High’s Movember

fundraising campaign. It deservedly gets front page attention

today.

More than $4000 was raised by staff for men’s health and this

year’s theme, Game of Mos, was in tune with other themes over

the years like Miami Vice and Tom Selleck from Magnum P.I.

The line of the week goes to deputy principal Blair Johnson,

who was of course the ‘chief mo-tivator’.

City chorus puts

on festive show

• By Ashleigh Monk

THE Christchurch City Chorus

is putting on a festive show to

get everyone into the Christmas

spirit.

On December 15 the choir will

take the stage to perform The

Magic of Christmas.

Musical director Virginia

Humphrey-Taylor said the show

would include Christmas carols,

skits, poems and dancing.

“We want to share the joy and

music of Christmas with people,”

she said.

“We want everyone to come

and sing carols with us. It’s

something for the whole family

to get everyone excited for

Christmas.”

She said about 80 members of

the choir would be performing.

“We’ve got quartets singing,

we’ve got small groups singing,

we’ve got about 20 children who

will be performing,” she said.

“We’ll sing a lot of the classic

Christmas carols, but there will

also be a few songs that people

won’t know; songs from around

the world about Christmas.”

The show would give members

a chance to get some practice

in before the Christchurch City

Chorus heads to New Orleans

for a performance in September.

“We’re doing as many shows

as we can so we are prepared,”

she said.

She said she hoped to showcase

the group and encourage

new members to join.

“We’re looking for new

members all the time. There’s

always a turn over of membership

because people move away

or their lives change, so this is a

chance for people who might be

interested in joining to see what

we do.”

The Magic of Christmas will

be performed on December 15,

with a matinee at 2pm and an

evening show at 7pm.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $20

for seniors and $10 for children,

and can be purchased at www.

ccchorus.co.nz or by contacting

Jeannette McGrath on 021 976

$1.2m plan for old Redcliffs school site

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Louis Day

PLANS FOR a new $1.2 million

park on the old Redcliffs School

site have been released.

The city council has proposed

converting the site into a park

to compensate for the loss

of Redcliffs Park, which will

accommodate the new school.

The draft landscape plan is

open for public consultation

until December 17. Once

consultation has finished, the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board will make a

recommendation on the park’s

future to the city council.

It would be called Te Papa

Kura, a name gifted by local iwi.

Papa means park and kura can

mean both school and red.

One junior and one

intermediate football field,

a toilet, drinking fountain,

additional furniture and new

signage will all be added to the

park.

The existing playground,

furniture, car park and a

community building will be kept

on the site.

The site is also being

considered as a possible location

for a skate park as part of the

Bays Area Skate Project.

City council acting head of

DEVELOPMENT: The city council has proposed a $1.2 million plan to convert the old Redcliffs

School site into a park.

parks Kate Russell was confident

the new park would be just as

good as the old one, in spite

of the new site being 643 sq m

smaller.

“The new park will offer

the same sport and recreation

opportunities as the former park

– sports fields, a playground,

a community building, toilets

and car parking. We will also be

adding a perimeter path.”

Ms Russell said the city council

was aiming to start and finish

construction next year, with the

football fields predicted to be

ready before winter.

However, Friends of Redcliffs

Park spokesman Chris Doudney

said the relocation of the park

and the school was “totally

pointless”.

“The old school site is on the

same side of the road to about

80 per cent of its pupils so kids

don’t have to cross the main road.

It’s also higher than the new site

which is a flood plain.”

Mr Doudney also has issues

with the plans for the new park.

“I’m glad they are keeping a

couple of the trees but I think

they should keep a few more. I

thought that they should move

one of the playing fields a bit

further away from the other one

so there is room to keep another

tree or two and to get a path

between the two playing fields.”

Mr Doudney said the best

thing the city council could do

was to move the school back to its

old site and leave Redcliffs Park

where it was.

Theatre for babies

BABIES AND theatre are not

usually two things that are put

together.

In fact, any parent who has

taken a baby to a performance

knows it can be challenging at

best and a disaster at worst.

Turning that whole idea on

its head is Burwood’s Melanie

Luckman, Sumner’s Hannah

Wheeler and Strowan’s Amy

Straker.

The trio will perform their

show Up And Away, designed

especially for pre-walking

babies, in New Brighton and

Phillipstown.

The show will be staged

through the newly-launched

Cubbin Theatre Company.

The company aims to develop

genuine theatre for children

under the age of five.

Each performance will last

about 30-40min with an opportunity

for families to stay and

play at the end.

The show will also take place

in a carefully crafted tent.

“Our vision is of a world where

high-quality art is as integral to

early childhood as the

playground, and as accessible,”

Luckman said.

She said it has been great

enliven places project fund for

this tour.

Luckman said with the funding’s

help it can offer the show

for $5 for a baby and adult

together.

The show is informed by

neuroscientific research and has

been developed in consultation

with a speech and a language

therapist through a series of

rehearsal workshops with babies.

Wheeler was working at LATT

Children’s Theatre and living in

South Korea when she saw her

first baby theatre performance.

“It was five years ago and what

I experienced has stuck with me

ever since. I am really excited

about bringing high quality,

respectful and intelligent theatre

to children in Christchurch,” she

said.

Townhouses force neighbour out

•From page 1

Said Mr Higgins: “The work

will involve reviewing high

density developments and

reporting back to the Regulatory

Performance Committee on the

initial findings and next steps,”

Ms Mehlhopt said the

development devalued her home,

cost her privacy, and the street’s

family-orientated

appeal. Construction of the

townhouses was finished earlier

this year.

“The council never did

anything about it, so I’m

moving,” she said.

Under the current District

Plan, zoning for the development

was compliant.

COMPLETE: Kim Mehlhopt is moving after

townhouses were built less than 1m away from

her Spreydon home.

Mr Higgins said consents were

issued in accordance with the

Resource Management Act and

Building Act.

“Having said that, following

the concerns raised by Ms

Mehlhopt, the council did talk

to and meet with both parties

on several occasions to explore

if there were any mitigation

measures/improvements that

could be undertaken that would

improve the situation for Ms

Mehlhopt.”

One of the ideas was to re-site

the house on her property as part

of her EQC repairs.

However, Mr Higgins said

no mitigation or improvements

were agreed upon.

Women only

time slots at

swimming pools

• By Julia Evans

Fire rages, homes at risk

FOR TWO hours on Sunday

it was only women who were

allowed to swim in the teaching

pool at Pioneer.

City council head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel Cox said

20 females and a pre-school age

boy attended the first session over

the weekend.

“Ranging in age from preschool

to seniors,” he said.

Mr Cox said the women-only

sessions will be held at Aquagym

and Wharenui pools, as well as

Pioneer Recreation and Sports

Centre, in conjunction with

Christchurch Resettlement Services.

“The pool is booked for this

session to run every Sunday from

1.30–3.30pm,” he said.

The idea was suggested by the

city council’s multicultural subcommittee

in June, which asked

staff to look into the potential of

offering women-only swimming

sessions at particular times.

The session sets out to cater to

women of other cultures, particularly

Muslim women who generally

aren’t able to swim in public.

But also other women who do

not feel comfortable swimming

with men.

Principal goes for swim at school fair

• By Louis Day

REDCLIFFS SCHOOL still

managed to raise more than

$30,000 at its fair in the face of

wet and windy weather.

School principal Rose

McInerney, who went for a swim

in the dunk tank, said there was

still more money to come.

“We had two amazing cubby

houses at the fair and because we

couldn’t paint them at the fair

because of the weather, they still

have to be finished and auctioned

off on Trade Me, so they will

potentially bring in another

$5000,” said Mrs McInerney.

More than 2000 people

attended the fair last Sunday and

were treated to a wide variety of

sideshows and activities, such

as mini golf, dunk the teacher,

mini jeep trucks and a horizontal

bungy.

Pupils opened the fair by

performing kapa haka and

singing choir songs.

“Our (pupils) were incredible,

I think they got about 4min of

singing without rain and sung

Mrs McInerney said the money

raised would go a long way in

improving the experience of

pupils at the school.

“Some of it will go towards

additional teaching resources to

provide extra opportunity for

our students and some of it is

definitely going to go towards the

outdoor areas and seating for our

new school.”

Mrs McInerney said the fair

could have quite easily been

a failure if it were not for the

resilience of the community.

“For our school community

and the wider community to get

behind the school fair and come

along out in the wind and rain,

I just think it speaks volumes

about who they are.”

New equipment for

sensory playground

OBSOLETE equipment from

throughout the city is getting a

new lease of life in the children’s

playground at Rawhiti Doman.

The sensory playground is

designed to give all children,

especially those with special

needs, the opportunity to

explore senses.

The playground was the

brainchild of SmileDial New

Zealand founder Kelly Dugan.

Mr Dugan, who has a sevenyear-old

daughter with cerebral

palsy, came up with the idea.

Some of the large plastic

traffic sheep that used to feature

on inner city pavements have

been put out to pasture in the

sensory garden along with one

of the New Brighton tiny huts.

An avid supporter of the

playground is Citycare property

supervisor Doug Peek, who

is always on the lookout for

items that can be recycled at the

playground rather than sent to

landfill.

When it was time to decide

if the hut should stay or be

dismantled, Mr Peek suggested

it be added to the garden.

CREATIVE: Citycare property supervisor Doug Peek is always

on the look-out for items that can be recycled for the sensory

garden at Rawhiti Domain.

“I always keep SmileDial and

the kids in the back of my mind

when out on the job . . . we are

essentially turning trash into

treasure,” Mr Peek said.

SmileDial receives no

cool and colourful

Government funding, only

community support.

“Without the backing of

organisations like Citycare

we simply wouldn’t exist,” Mr

Dugan said.

Halswell teen’s path

ambulance career

ST JOHN’S National Cadet of

the Year is 17-year-old Dominic

Anisy, who hopes to ultimately

pursue a career with the

ambulance service.

Dominic (right) has been

a youth member since 2006,

starting as a penguin at the

Opawa division before moving to

Halswell, where he is currently a

cadet leader.

He graduated from St Thomas

of Canterbury College this year.

Dominic was also the South

Island Region Cadet of the Year

and competed for the national

title alongside Virginia Konelio

and Jeremy Johnston.

Dominic formally took over the

role as National Cadet of the Year

from Cascade Price at an investiture

ceremony earlier this month

at the Christchurch Transitional

Cathedral.

Outside St John, Dominic is a

talented graphic designer having

won a national graphic design

competition to design the logo of

the new St John intranet.

Dominic also hopes to pursue

a career with St John’s frontline

ambulance service or the police

force in future.

“I am really looking forward to

my term as National Cadet of the

Year. I am so passionate about St

John Youth and I am grateful for

all the fun memories, life skills

and friends that I have made

St John Community health

services director Sarah Manley

said Dominic will “play a big

part in leading the St John youth

programme’s 15-year strategy,

launched last year in St John

youth’s 90th year.”

St John youth has about 7500

members, with 193 divisions

across New Zealand.

As part of his cadet duties,

Dominic will lead the St John

youth advisory panel, supported

by Virginia Konelio and Jeremy

Johnston.

‘Moody’ wildlife photo wins big

AN “OBSESSED with nature”

Spreydon nine-year-old has won

the Canterbury Museum youth

photography competition.

Max Eadie-Lilley won the

under-10 category with his

moody monochrome shot of a

school of fish in a Lake Taupo

dam.

He took the photo, which he

titled Stuck, during a weekend

away with his family.

Dylan Fisher, 10, was runnerup

for his portrait of a Kea,

which judges said captured the

bird’s intelligence and famously

cheeky nature.

The competition titled

Amazing Animals attracted

more than 200 entries from

photographers aged 15 and under

throughout Canterbury.

The judges convened last week

SNAP: Spreydon resident Max

Eadie-Lilley’s photo (top left)

photography competition.

to choose a winner and runnerup

from the two categories.

Zoe Evans, 15, won the 11 to

15 category for a close-up shot of

a Bellbird inside Auckland Zoo’s

aviary.

“When the Bellbird finally

realised I was there, it looked

straight at me with its beautiful

brown eyes and I took my final

shot. It was truly a rare and

magical moment,” she said.

Anna Babington’s heartbreaking

shot of a injured seal

by a boat propeller was second

place.

Canterbury Museum curator

natural history Cor Vink, who

was one of the competition’s

three judges, said the panel was

blown away by the quality of the

entries.

“We were just amazed by

the talent these young people

had. We recently hosted the

Natural History Museum’s

Wildlife Photographer of the Year

exhibition, and I honestly think

some of these shots would not

have looked out of place on the

walls of that exhibition.”

The winners won Prezzie Card

prizes and their photographs are

on display now in the museum’s

foyer.

Shops bursting with

festive gift ideas

The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making up the

Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you haven’t already done so.

Finding those special gifts and stocking fillers as

well as the Christmas treats for the table is so easy at

our city’s malls and shopping centres, where the shops

are bursting with festive merchandise.

Every woman likes to receive body pampering

gifts, and there is a huge selection of these priced

to suit all budgets at the many pharmacies and gift

shops around the city. Perfume is another favourite

and again there is a wide selection to choose from,

ranging from exciting new releases to the well-known

fragrances that have stood the test of time. Lingerie,

jewellery, fashion accessories, homewares and decor

items – there’s no end to the ideas for the women on

the list.

The men are equally well catered for, from the

sophisticated metro-male boyfriends, to the car-crazy

brothers and the DIY enthusiast and keen gardener

husbands and dads. Choose from clothing, books,

tools, personal grooming items and gadgets to put a

smile on their face on Christmas morning.

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families more joy

than seeing the excitement of the children opening

their presents. Whether they are delivered by Santa

or snuck under the tree by mum and dad, the cuddly

toys, games, dolls and building blocks, the candy

canes, toy trucks and pretty dresses currently filling

the shops will bring squeals of sheer happiness from

the smallest family members.

The tweens and teens usually have their own ideas

about what they want for Christmas, so the gift cards

offered by a wide range of retailers are the perfect way

to please.

Deck the halls

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a decoration or two around the home.

Whether its outdoor lights with a waving Santa or

just draping tinsel across your mantelpiece, there are

many ways to celebrate the festive season in your home.

Go natural

Driftwood painted white with LED lights wrapped

around, or pine cones with a touch of silver spray

paint, make beautiful natural additions to the home

at this time of year. If you have a tree branch around

the home, why not cut it up into discs and spray paint

white stars and reindeer on the disc. Drill a hole in the

top and thread some gardeners string through the hole

and you have an instant decoration to hang on the tree

or somewhere around the home. Cover polystyrene

balls in ripped linen, hessian and cotton strips. These

can either be hung up or a number placed in a bowl on

the table.

Tinsel town

Many love the glitter and sparkle that tinsel brings

but how about using it in different ways. A threetiered

cake plate with tinsel laid on each plate with

baubles then placed on top, can look really impressive

as a centrepiece for the table. Make your own wreath

by wrapping tinsel around and around a polystyrene

circle. Hang just as it is, or hot glue gun baubles on to

create extra wow.

Table setting

Sometimes the simplest decorations on the table

can look the most stunning. A beautiful napkin rolled

up with a piece of red and white ribbon, or rosemary

wreath looks amazing. Why not place a hessian runner

down the middle of the table and add greenery and

candles in jars on top to create a wonderful centrepiece.

If you have a children’s eating table, why not put a

long piece of brown paper as a table cloth. Draw large

circles where the plates can go and write Christmas

questions beside each plate outline. A little bottle with

a red and white paper straw is great too. Put a jar of

red and green crayons on the table. When the kids are

finished their dinner, they can play noughts and crosses

or hangman or just draw pictures.

If you’re looking for ideas why not check out

Pintrest. Here you will find every style and every

technique to make sure your home looks like a

Christmas wonderland this festive season.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior

clients visit complaining of pain in one or

both hips.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a

back muscle could also be the cause, as

shown in the image.

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

and wellbeing.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the hip, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the hip in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

Play, laugh, learn. These are the essential

ingredients for a successful Pre-School

education. These crucial early years are to be

nurtured, shaped and cherished as your child

takes their first steps in education.

Research states that play may be the single

most important things that humans do. “Our

play based learning approach supports your

child as they begin their exciting journey as a

lifelong learner” says Principal Scott Thelning.

In Cathedral Grammar’s purpose built

Pre-School, taught by qualified teachers, your

child will discover by curiosity, investigation

and exploration. Our low child/teacher ratios,

ensure your child’s quality individual and

group learning.

Every advantage is taken of our central

city location to extend our ‘campus’ from the

Botanic Gardens to the Canterbury Museum,

The Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o

Waiwhetu to the Christchurch Transitional

Cathedral, from Tūranga (Christchurch

Being an inner city Pre-School also gives

you a wonderfully easy opportunity to engage

in your child’s learning if you are working in

the CBD.

Your child will develop essential

foundations in literacy and numeracy. He

or she will enjoy the benefits of specialised

facilities, subjects and staff including Art,

Physical Education, Yoga and Chapel.

When children feel good about themselves

and their abilities, they are able to take flight

and explore, discover, take risks and play,

laugh and learn effectively and successfully.

“Self-esteem is at the core of this development

process” Thelning says.

DOROTHY Perkins celebrated her 100th

birthday on Friday.

She was joined by family and friends

from Dunedin, Invercargill, Tauranga

and as far away as England at Edith Cavell

Lifecare and Village in Sumner.

Miss Perkins received letters

congratulating her from the Queen, Port

Hills MP Ruth Dyson and several people

living on Stewart Island. She was the

district nurse on Stewart Island from 1965-

1972, where she would look after seasick

ferry passengers, newborn babies, the

elderly, and accident victims.

Miss Perkins became famous

throughout the community for driving

what relatives described as a “green army

jeep” to see patients across the island.

Her cousin Robert Overton said Miss

Perkins was often on call 24 hours a day as

she was the only nurse on the island.

“She had to be a bit of everything there.

There wasn’t even a doctor on the island.”

Before she was the district nurse on

Stewart Island, Miss Perkins worked at

St Helen’s Hospital in Sydenham, Dee St

Maternity Hospital in Invercargill and was

also matron at the Lumsden Maternity

Centre.

After seven years of service on

Stewart Island, Miss Perkins retired in

Christchurch but continued to care for

family and friends.

“Dot has been the lady who has moved

where the need has been to look after

people. She looked after both my wife’s

parents and my parents before they passed

away,” Mr Overton said.

Miss Perkins was driving people to

church, getting her own groceries and

looking after herself in her Redcliffs home

until Christmas last year, when she moved

to Edith Cavell Lifecare and Village.

Mr Overton said Miss Perkins would

always put the needs of other people before

her own.

“Dot never wanted to be a worry. If she

fell at two in the morning she would wait

till six to call the buzzer. One day she had

a fall in the garden so she shuffled into

a bush and did some weeding while she

waited for help to arrive. She’s not one to

Children eat

what they sow

At Kimihia we are very lucky to have

space for vege gardens. Our tamariki are

involved in all aspects of the growing

of vegetables and fruit. Whilst our

strawberries are usually picked and

eaten fresh, most of the vegetables we

grow are used in the meals our Centre

provides. Over the growing season our

garden produced pumpkins, zucchini,

beetroot, tomatoes, beans, basil,

coriander, silverbeet, peas, broccoli,

cabbage, cauliflower and lettuce. Giant

sunflowers, nasturtiums and calendulas

provided plenty of colour in the garden.

Our children delighted in being able to

harvest the vegetables thay had grown

and take them to our food preparers. We

have also saved seeds from some of last

year’s veges to plant in the new season’s

garden.

The garden offers so many

opportunities for learning; not only the

connection between garden and plate,

but also how to care for living things,

how to work together and how to live

sustainably and care for the earth.

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times,

new research has shown that neurons

can grow back with the right conditions

and that a special extract of Gingko

Biloba (EGb-761 or TEBONIN) has

been clinically found to assist in this.

The implications for stroke recovery are

obvious, but researchers also know many

of us suffer from undetected “microstrokes”

that over a period of time slowly

reduce our cognitive function. TEBONIN

is prescribed worldwide as a natural

supportive agent for a healthy brain and

cognitive function. It supports healthy

mental performance, concentration, focus,

alertness, motor function and to help

with many conditions including tinnitus

(ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo

and normal balance. TEBONIN improves

micro-circulation and helps the blood

flow reach those critical places it needs to

get. It is a potent anti-oxidant and makes

the red blood cells more pliable and

capillary walls more flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented

multi-step extraction process. Each small

tablet contains a highly concentrated

BOOST BRAIN

PERFORMANCE UP TO 30%

TEBONIN is the No 1 Ginkgo Biloba extract in the World with more than 8 million tablets

being consumed every day. It is also the most researched herbal extract with more than 60

controlled clinical studies & over 400 scientific studies. It has been shown to have excellent

efficacy, safety & tolerability. Millions of consumers have trusted TEBONIN for over 30

years to support blood flow, capillary health, brain health & performance.

Studies on TEBONIN Show:

- Improved Brain Performance & Function up to 30%. This includes improvement

in mental sharpness, focus, attention, concentration, understanding, memory & recall.

- Reduces errors made & mental stress.

- The only Ginkgo shown to increase activity in all areas of the brain. Can help restore

brain function after a brain injury such as from a stroke.

- Helps relieve tinnitus (ringing & noise in the ears), vertigo, dizziness & supports normal

balance.

- Improves blood flow to all areas of the body.

- Reduces plaque formation in the blood vessels.

- Protective effect against eyes damage caused by light.

50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic

clinical dose without having to take a large

amount of the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba

products on the market, and tested by a

major medical journal, only TEBONIN

passed all five of the test requirements.

Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements

and the rest didn’t pass more than three

out of five requirements. TEBONIN is

the only Gingko biloba extract shown

to activated all areas of the brain and is

considered the gold standard in Gingko.

TEBONIN has been trusted by millions

of consumers worldwide for over 30

years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

REAL ESTATE

A pleasant surprise - “As Is, Where Is”

214B Mt Pleasant Rd, Mt Pleasant

Auction: From 12pm, Thursday 13 December, Harcourts Grenadier, 98 Moorhouse Ave – unless sold prior

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 4 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 3 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number: SM0133

Serving as an immaculate example of an as

is, where is property, this partially repaired

four-bedroom home enjoys exceptional

north-facing views over the sea and coastline

offering the ultimate hillside lifestyle.

With remediation three-quarters complete,

the vendors have now exceeded their cap and

don’t wish to proceed any further with the

remaining repairs, and therefore, they offer

this superbly presented home to a new buyer

who can live incredibly comfortably while

they finish the last of the work required in

their own time.

The property’s cladding has been repaired

and a new kitchen installed. The kitchen

exudes modern style with its granite

benchtops and breakfast bar, all benefiting

from an elevated outlook over the sea that

stretches across to Ferrymead.

The multi-level living layout includes a

breath-taking lounge on the central portion of

the first floor which features a double height

ceiling that contributes a sense of grandeur to

the space. From there, a small set of steps lead

you up to the kitchen and open plan dining

and living area where you can admire the

unobstructed views beyond. Lots of balconies

and decks provide outdoor flow and there is

some good flat lawn for children to play.

Four good sized bedrooms are serviced by

three bathrooms and a powder room, with the

master bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe

and an ensuite with a spa bath. One bedroom

has a kitchenette and could be used to hosts

guest or run Airbnb. There’s great level drive

on access with turning and internal access

triple car garaging which are further enticing

features of the property.

Located within easy reach of the various

coastal suburbs that lead you around to

Sumner Beach, this property also enjoys a

relatively straight-forward commute into the

city centre which will take you less than 20

minutes by car. Zoned and within walking

distance to Mt Pleasant School (decile 10).

Being sold on an as is, where is basis, this

property offers comfort and presents buyers

with the opportunity to complete the home

to their taste. Possibly the best we have

marketed!

Open Homes: Wednesday, Saturday &

Sunday 3:15pm - 4:00pm.

viewing or for more information contact

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.”

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.”

soap residue, mineral deposits and dirt that end up on the shower

base, it really does need EPOXY grout if you want it to last 10+ years.
