“Easiest to find Denture

Clinic in Christchurch”

Jake’s new challenge

Coast to

Coast

looms for

cancer

survivor

• By Sophie Cornish

AS A CHILD Jake Bailey was not

the sporting type.

But at 21-years-old, he is taking

on the Coast to Coast next

month.

The cancer survivor made

international headlines in 2015

with his gripping speech about

his shock diagnosis as head boy

of Christchurch Boys’ High

School.

Mr Bailey was told he had two

weeks to live after finding out

he had Burkitt’s Non-Hodgkins

Lymphoma, the fastest growing

cancer known to man.

During the Coast to Coast he

will tackle the 160km cycle part

of the event over two days, in a

team with two old school friends,

who will take on the kayak and

run legs.

Since beating his cancer and

announcing he was in remission

INSPIRATIONAL: Jake Bailey will be competing in the Coast to Coast after beating cancer.

in January 2016, Mr Bailey has

been working full-time as a

public speaker. He has shared

his story and what it taught him

across almost 50 cities around

the world.

Now living on the Gold Coast,

Mr Bailey is also the author

What Cancer Taught Me and

features in the documentary The

Common Touch, which is about

his cancer journey.

He will return to Christchurch

next month to compete in

the event he calls “iconic” to

Canterbury.

As a young boy, Mr Bailey

would go with his father to watch

the end of the Coast to Coast.

But he said he “never dreamed

of taking part.”

Mr Bailey’s close call with

death has serve as his motivation

for getting into endurance sport.

“In both a practical sense,

because it minimises my risk of

relapse and makes sure my body

is fit and in an emotional, mental

and personal sense.”

He said he’s developed an

“obsession” in learning what his

body is capable of.

“Going through cancer

treatment and seeing what my

body could withstand, I have

grown a fascination with what

the body can do and putting

mind over matter and having

mental strength. That’s why

endurance sport appeals to me,

it’s a battle between your head

and your body to push yourself.”

Over the last four months,

Mr Bailey has completed

triathlon events, something

which came as a shock to him

as he could not swim more than

25m a year ago.

“I did fairly poorly,” he said.

“But I really enjoyed them.”

THAT’S ONE amazing story on page 1

today.

Jake Bailey, the young bloke who gained

international attention in 2015 with his

gripping speech about his shock cancer

diagnosis, is competing in the Coast to

Coast. He had been given two weeks to live.

Jake’s now 21 and resides on the Gold Coast and is living life

to the fullest.

He will take part in the team event. Jake will do the cycle leg

of 160km while his two mates will run and kayak.

That cycle leg could be savage if there is an easterly wind

blowing.

It will be like biking into a brick wall.

Not bad for someone who was never into sport. It is amazing

what determination can do.

Fire rages, homes at risk

$20k needed for pool study

• By Jess Gibson

FINDING $20,000 to pay for a

feasibility study into a pool in

Edgeware is a new priority for

the community group behind the

project.

The St Albans Pavilion and

Pool Group is using a Givealittle

page to raise

money for the

study, which

will assess the

practicality

of the new

Edgeware Pool

designs and

whether it will

Pauline Cotter

be an asset to

the community.

After the

study, the group can then apply

for money from major charitable

funding groups to build the pool.

In 2016, the city council sold

the land for the Edgeware Pool to

the St Albans Pavilion and Pool

Group for $1.

The city council stated at

the time it would not contribute

to the project, but later said it

would commit $1.25 million if

the group could raise the rest of

the $5 million cost.

So far, more than $150,000 has

been raised for the project, which

has been used to cover other costs

study.

including resource consent and

developing design plans.

“The support has been fantastic

from the community. It will

be a fantastic facility as we

are a growing suburb and the

population is increasing,” said

community member Lynne

O’Keefe.

Mrs O’Keefe said monthly

public fundraising quizzes

attended by the public at Bailies

Bar and Restaurant have been a

huge part of fundraising.

Innes Ward city councillor

Pauline Cotter has been behind

the group since it began.

“The reason I’m so passionate

about this is that it’s so important

for young kids, particularly in

that 10-17 age bracket to have

a safe environment for them to

hang out,” said Cr Cotter.

Fire rages, homes at risk

What it takes to remove the chlorine

With the

clock ticking

on the city

council’s

self-imposed

deadline

to end

temporary

chlorination of the

water supply within

12 months, water

supply improvement

programme manager

Helen Beaumont gives

an update on how the

work is tracking

IT HAS been a year since the city

council voted to temporarily add

chlorine to the drinking water

supply in response to advice from

the Canterbury Medical Officer

of Health.

Over the past few months we

have made significant progress

on upgrading the wells that

supply our water so that we

can get back to having an

unchlorinated water supply.

To date we have upgraded

25 per cent of our wells – by

volume of water produced – to

bring them up to a standard

that exceeds the present

requirements.

We’ve set the bar higher than

required because we anticipate

that more stringent standards

will be introduced by the

Government shortly.

Upgrading each well takes

between two and six weeks and

we can only work on a limited

number of wells at any one time

because we still to need supply

water to homes and businesses.

We have been running a water

conservation campaign asking

people to use less water so we can

continue work on the wells and

we really appreciate the efforts

people have been making.

Our data shows average water

use to date is well below the

summer averages for the past two

years. If that keeps up we should

be able to continue with the well

remediation work as planned.

By May we expect to have

completed interim upgrades on

19 below-ground wells and raised

another 41 wells above ground,

bringing the total number of

secure wells to 98.

Those wells collectively provide

more than 60 per cent of the

city’s water supply.

If we upgrade those wells

as planned, we should

have a sufficient volume of

unchlorinated water to supply

the city over the winter months

when we use about 50 per cent

less water than we do in the

summer.

However, even after doing this

work, providing chlorine-free

water to everyone in every part of

the city remains a challenge.

The water supply is delivered

through nine discrete zones.

The central zone is our biggest

water zone and supplies water to

42 per cent of the population. It

is the oldest part of the city and

where we have the most wells

that need to be raised above

ground.

There is high demand for water

relative to the available capacity

in this zone and, therefore, very

little excess capacity. This makes

it difficult to do the necessary

upgrades.

To address the challenge in

the central zone, in addition

to the interim upgrades on

below-ground wells, we are also

working to install ultra violet

treatment at the main pump

station.

The main pump station is the

biggest supplier of water to the

central zone, and we are working

with the contractor on ways that

the installation can be sped up

so water can be treated with UV

instead of chlorine at this site.

We are also looking at whether

we can transfer water across zone

boundaries.

There are technical challenges

because of the different pressure

levels in some of the zones.

However, it may be possible

for us to use some of the pump

stations on the boundaries of the

central zone to push untreated

water into that area.

In addition, we are

investigating whether we can

make use of two private wells on

the Metro Sports Facility site.

They tap into deep aquifers

and were originally drilled for a

ground-source heat pump that is

no longer required.

They may be suitable to supply

potable water to homes and

businesses in the central zone.

We are confident that seven of

the nine city supply zones will be

chlorine free by May this year.

It is likely that we will have

sufficient water from secure wells

in the Ferrymead zone, and we

are doing further modelling of

water supply options and looking

at opportunities to fast track

works in the central zone.

In the meantime, we are also

looking at how we can reduce the

amount of chlorine in the water.

At the pump stations where

the chlorine has two minutes to

react with the water and disinfect

it before it reaches the first

consumer we have been able to

halve the dose of chlorine.

We are now looking at whether

we can re-route the water at some

of the other pump stations so we

can give the chlorine a longer

time to do its job before it reaches

the first consumer.

For example, if we can send the

water around the block before

it reaches people’s homes, there

may be other pump stations

where we can also reduce the

dose.

Each pump station has

between one and six wells

supplying it. Where some wells

are remediated and some are not,

we have to chlorinate all of the

water unless we can isolate

the wells that haven’t been

remediated.

We can only do that when the

demand for water is low.

When there are periods of

low demand we aim to only use

pump stations without chlorine.

It is only when absolutely

necessary, as water demand

rises, that we bring the

chlorinated pump stations into

service.

We all want the chlorine out

of our water and we are working

hard to ensure we can have an

unchlorinated water supply as

soon as possible.

Breaking down boundaries by being

POPULAR: Mummy blogger Rebecca Keil at home with her two children Ruby and Rocky.

• By Sophie Cornish

REBECCA KEIL describes

herself as “not very vanilla.”

But that trait is what led her to

become an online sensation, that

has brands such as Countdown,

Netflix and Jetstar wanting to

work with her.

The 25-year-old attributes

her online success and

unconventional income solely to

being a conventional, everyday

mother.

Online, Mrs Keil, of

Bishopdale, shares reviews

of a variety of products from

nappies to Tim Tams, helpful

tips and hacks, recipes and ‘her

truths’ about pregnancy and

motherhood.

The mummy-blogger has close

to 24,000 Instagram followers,

her posts can receive up to 1500

‘likes’ and her story posts gain on

average 8000 views.

On YouTube, Mrs Keil has

clocked up more than 1.2 million

views.

But it all began with a blog,

Rocky and Ruby, also the names

of her five-year-old son and threeyear-old

daughter.

In 2015, mummy-blogging was

gaining traction globally and Mrs

Keil spotted a gap in the market

in New Zealand.

She attributes her success to

a candid, raw and authentic

approach to motherhood and

parenting.

“Online, everyone had

beautiful homes, perfect lifestyles

and lots of money, that was what I

was seeing,” she said.

“I was like s**t, why isn’t my

life like this? You begin to

question everything. I just

wanted to be raw, honest and

show that my family and I didn’t

need to fit into a mould to feel

good enough.”

With this logic, her first post

began with advice on ‘pregnancy

hacks’ and she shared the good,

bad and the ugly.

“It just took off, it went

really crazy . . . I was talking

about things that people weren’t

talking about – things that may

have been taboo or “not cool”

to talk about, such as money

and how hard it is at times like

Christmas.”

Two and a half years later,

Rocky and Ruby had become

a rapid success across many

different platforms.

When Mrs Keil’s readership

was averaging between

20-30,000 views a month, she

began working with brands

who wanted to advertise to her

audience.

Through a platform called,

The Social Club, started by

Christchurch woman Georgia

McGillivray, Mrs Keil was able

to create her own profile, where

brands could find her, reach out

and offer an opportunity to work

together.

The first income she

received from her blog was an

advertisement from Lifestyle app.

Not long after that, Mrs Keil

was approached by McDonalds.

“It was so exciting, I thought

that’s it, I’ve made it, send me to

Mrs Keil put up a photo on

her Instagram of her and other

mothers at McCafe with their

children.

“I will get sent through a brief

of what they would like, their target

audience, their message. Then

the rest is totally up to me, I’ve

never been censored, I’m not very

vanilla, that’s what they say about

me in the media world.”

In one of her most outrageous

blog posts, Mrs Keil talked

about sex after having babies, to

promote an organic lubrication

company who had reached out

to her.

Now, Mrs Keil has her own

agent and is planning to launch a

website, The Mother Yarns.

She’s completed several tours

around New Zealand, selling

more than 1200 tickets, to people

who want to hear her speak.

One tour helped Mrs Keil and

her husband, Jared Keil, buy their

first home.

On the same tour, she raised

$15,000 for Lifelife Helpline.

“One thing I am passionate

about as an influencer is giving

back to the community. People’s

spent their hard-earned money to

see me, and helped me to buy

a house, so I wanted to give

back.”

Currently, Mrs Keil has ceased

her blog-writing, to work on

launching the brand, where she

hopes to expand her content from

her own life to other women’s

experiences through motherhood

and parenting.

Preparing for an ageing population

• By Jess Gibson

WORK IS ramping up on

another big retirement village in

the north-west.

The main building of the

$100 million Summerset on

Cavendish, a 7ha complex in

Casebrook, will be completed

later this year.

Spokeswoman Jenny Bridgen

said it expects the building at

the Cavendish Rd site to be

fully operational by December,

with the rest of the site to be

completed by 2021.

It will be one of three

Summerset villages to open in

Christchurch, with the others in

Avonhead and Wigram.

The main building will offer

an award-winning Memory Care

Centre for people affected by

dementia, the first of its kind in

Canterbury, with 20 apartmentstyle

rooms and specialised care

for retirees with fully-developed

dementia.

Mrs Bridgen said the main

building will provide a permanent

“heart” for the new village,

including a movie theatre, chapel,

café, hair salon, shop and on-site

care centre for 36 residents

Summerset’s first memory care

centre opened in Levin at Summerset

by the Ranges in 2016.

It won the Aged Care Association’s

built and grown environment

award for its design in 2017

and was accredited for its services

by Alzheimer’s New Zealand last

year.

These centres are set to be

incorporated into all of Summerset’s

new village locations, including

Summerset at Avonhead,

which will open about June.

As Summerset is working to

becoming a ‘dementia friendly’

organisation by 2020, its staff will

be trained in dementia awareness

to meet the international

standards in helping people

affected by mild to fully

developed dementia to live their

best lives.

“I think our memory care

is really important because it

helps our dementia residents

maintain their independence in a

really secure environment,” said

Summerset on Cavendish village

manager Stephanie Meehan.

The Cavendish Rd site has been

in development for 18 months so

far and has required about 250

tradespeople.

There are 73 current residents,

who have occupied 42 completed

units since March last year.

The village will have 270 units

in total once completed.

“It’s been a privilege to be the

manager of a developing village.

You don’t get that opportunity

very often,” said Ms Meehan.

CONSTRUCTION: The main

building of the $100 million

Summerset on Cavendish will

be operational by December.

Fast facts:

•The number of people

living in Christchurch aged

65 and over is estimated to

increase from 52,100 in 2013

to 105,700 in 2043

•The number of people

aged 85 and over is

projected to almost triple,

from 7400 to 20,100 over the

same time frame

•There is an estimated

demand for another

1654 retirement village units

every year in New Zealand

between 2016 and 2043

•By 2050 it is estimated

there will be three times

as many people in New

Zealand affected by

dementia than there is today

Fire rages, homes at risk

Celebrating 40 years of Aratupu

PLAY: Young photographer Shakaia Nepia, 5, tries to get friends

Harrison George, 5, and Peaches Te Whata, 4, to smile.

• Jess Gibson

BOUNCY CASTLES, games,

music and a sausage sizzle will

be ready for families to enjoy on

Friday.

Staff from a Papanui preschool

sent out an open invitation to

families in the community to

join it in celebrating its 40th

birthday from 3.30-5.30pm on

Friday.

The party will commemorate

Aratupu Preschool and

Nursery’s long dedication to

supporting parents in raising

their children.

Aratupu, formerly known as

Fairhaven Daycare Centre, was

built in front of the Methodist

Mission Children’s home on

Harewood Rd in 1978 as a

place for young children to visit

during the day.

When the children’s home

stopped operating soon

after, Aratupu continued to

provide care for children in

the community with the help

of the Christchurch Methodist

Mission.

It had a strong focus on

supporting young, single

mothers to raise and provide for

their children.

Today, the same focus

remains, including a more

holistic approach which aims to

provide a wraparound service

for all families.

Most of the children enrolled

are from young single parent

families who rely on a benefit or

have a low income, with many

receiving the Work and Income

child care subsidy.

Aratupu practice lead Marcia

Manson-Glover said it is

important for staff to play a vital

role in “supporting families

beyond Aratupu’s walls and

creating the best possible home

environment as well.”

“It takes a village to raise

a child, we know that some

whanau don’t have support

systems or that they struggle to

get the support that they need,”

said Mrs Manson-Glover.

The network of services

provided by Aratupu for families

includes an on site whanau

support worker, community

health worker, whanau room,

parenting courses, child and

parent groups, contracted

facilitators and access to all

Christchurch Methodist Mission

services.

Children are also fed with

a cooked lunch every day,

and Aratupu’s partnership

with Pegasus Health ensures

all children are enrolled with

primary health services such as a

GP and dentist.

Aratupu was awarded the

whanau healthy heart award

from the Heart Foundation.

The award recognised

the preschool as having an

environment that promotes

healthy eating and physical

activity.

Mrs Manson-Glover has

worked at Aratupu for 10 years

and said she has seen generations

of families come through.

“One particular mother

brought her children here and

later became a teacher. Now her

daughter is about to give birth

and she’s on the wait list,” she

said.

“Another family with

six children is about to leave

after 18 years. That’s going to be

a big loss for us.”

“It’s that long-standing

relationship at Aratupu that’s

always really relied on,” said Mrs

Manson-Glover.

On Friday, she said she is

hoping to see a lot of old faces

back and connections.

But also wants to meet new

people and families to connect

with them.

SPORTS

Young footballers

take on Japan’s best

ON TOUR: Seamus Gallagher and Nicholas Murphy leaving

Christchurch in their new Phoenix gear.

CHRISTCHURCH United

youngsters Seamus Gallagher and

Nicholas Murphy have been on

tour in Japan with the Wellington

Phoenix Soccer School.

The two Christchurch United

under-12 players were invited

by the Phoenix management

to strengthen the squad for a

demanding two-week, 10-match

tour against some of Japan’s

leading clubs.

Christchurch United Academy

director Colin Williamson said

the tour was a unique occasion

for Seamus, who attends St

Thomas of Canterbury College,

and Nicholas, who will start at St

Bede’s College this year, to test

their skills at a higher level.

“Seamus and Nicholas are two

players with great potential and it

will be interesting to see how they

will do playing alongside other

strong players against top youth

teams,” said Williamson.

Japanese football has created

a global reputation for youth

player development and its junior

and senior teams have been

impressive at FIFA tournaments

across all age-groups.

The Phoenix side arrived on

January 10 and the next day

received a stark warning of what

to expect when they were well

beaten 7-1 in their first match

TEAMMATES: Nicholas Murphy (top row, third from right) and

Seamus Gallagher (eighth from right) after their match against

the Yokohama Marinos.

against JEF United, one of Japan’s

leading first division clubs.

The Phoenix lads and their

new Christchurch teammates

bounced back well, beating an

Ichihara BONZ school team, and

then improved even further in a

4-1 win over the local Ichihara

under-12 selection, with Seamus

setting up the third goal.

They then moved to the Tokyo

suburb of Kanagawa where they

played Yokohama Marinos, the

wealthiest club in Japan with

a famous academy that has

produced some of the country’s

biggest names.

The young New Zealanders

showed how much they had

progressed since their heavy first

game defeat by competing well

with their Japanese peers.

It was an even contest at 1-1

at the break, but they allowed

Yokohama to pull away in the

final stages of the 70min game for

an admirable 2-4 defeat.

Phoenix Soccer School director

Jo Dawkins said the boys were in

tears after the match.

“Not because they lost, but

because they knew they deserved

something out of it.”

She said it was one of the closest

results achieved by a junior New

Zealand team.

Things did not get easier as the

young Kiwis faced other J-League

clubs Kawasaki Frontale and

Kashima Reysol.

The players also got a full

cultural immersion while in

Japan, staying three nights

with the families of their

Japanese opponents in the city

of Kashiwa.

Hanleys Essential Dog Roll

Essentials dog rolls have now rebranded to Hanleys Essential

Dog Roll under owner Philippa Hanleys animal nutrition banner.

Philippa has been making natural horse and dog food for over

10 years and lives locally in Geraldine.

Hanleys Essential Dog Roll are not just amazing meat. Philippas

own amino acids blend from Nz whey protein concentrate

are added along with organic minerals, rice and hemp seed oil

from Canterbury. Hemp seed oil has been dubbed ‘nature’s

most perfectly balanced oil’, due to its 3:1 ratio of Omega 6

to Omega 3, deemed an essential requirement for long-term

healthy nutrition. Brown rice flour and other organic minerals

are also added, making the rolls full of clean protein and good

fats. Hanleys contains 18% protein so next time you are buying

your dog roll compare this figure. More protein means you

need to feed less, so you are receiving far better value for

money. Feed less and save more.

It is not just about what is in the rolls. What is missing is also

crucial. No preservatives or chemicals are added. Many pet

owners probably do not realise how hard preservatives are

on a dog’s kidneys and how much damage they may cause. The

business mottos are: ‘enhance all health’ and ‘health before

money’.

Feed just a portion of normal supermarket rolls due to the

superfood ingredients.

eluctant netballer to top coach

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN SARA Norton was

11-years-old she was reluctantly

dragged out onto the netball

court – and she vowed to never

play the sport again.

“I couldn’t shoot and I hated it

. . . that was my only experience

with netball,” she said. Now

three decades later, the Avonhead

resident has been presented with

a major coaching award from

Netball New Zealand.

Norton, 44, was named

community coach of the year at

the 2018 Netball Coach Awards

Norton credits her youngest

daughter for starting her career

in netball. Fifteen years ago,

her then six-year-old daughter

decided she wanted to play

netball.

But because the primary school

she attended had no coach,

Norton had no choice but to “step

up.”

While she had to “very

quickly” teach herself how to

teach others to play the game,

she soon found she had a flair for

coaching.

The Hornby Netball Club

coach and Christchurch Netball

Centre junior co-ordinator said

she “couldn’t believe it” when she

won the award.

“I do a lot of coaching and

I work really hard. I do that

because I want to do my best for

TOP COACH: Avonhead’s Sara Norton, who was named Netball New Zealand community coach

of the year, with her Hornby Netball Club Founders Trophy.

the girls that I coach. But never

at any point did I even think

about things like (the award). It is

incredible,” she said.

The award capped off a big year

for Norton who was presented

the Founders Trophy by Hornby

Netball Club founder Lynlea

Willan at the September senior

prize-giving.

She was then awarded coach

of the year by the Christchurch

SPORTS

Netball Centre.

Norton said she is happiest as a

coach when she sees a player who

has struggled in the sport make

an improvement by the end of the

netball season.

“If you can get good results that

is fantastic, but there are always

going to be times when your

results aren’t so good,” she said.

Norton said a key thing is

being able to get people on the

team involved in their own

learning.

“Most people want to be better

at what they are doing and the

only way of doing that is if they

are actually doing it,” she said.

“We have got some wonderful

league players, wonderful rugby

players, basketball, netball. You

name it, we have got it,” she said.

Norton has coached more than

20 teams, including Hornby

Senior A, Middleton Grange A

and the under-14 Christchurch

Netball Centre representative

teams.

“I think for anyone who takes

coaching seriously, being able to

do it professionally is always the

goal . . . if I can take it further

great, and if I can’t, I will just

keep on going.”

Selling a property at the same time as finding your next home

can be a stressful juggling-act. However, Mike Pero Bishopdale

North, run by husband and wife team Ian and Cathy Falconer,

are on hand to bring their unique and very client-friendly

approach to real estate and support you through the whole

process. Part of the Mike Pero franchise, their aim is to make

the experience less daunting. They have been through the

same experiences as their clients, having found homes both

to raise their family and for elderly relatives, so they can

appreciate what their sellers and buyers are going through

and what their specific needs are.

Their new venture is based on firm roots and a heap of

experience. Now married for almost three decades, the couple

started married life in Bishopdale, and are passionate about

supporting the area. Cathy has been the Bishopdale Pink

Ribbon volunteer coordinator for the past seven years and

locals are sure to have seen Ian dressed in pink fundraising to

support the cause. This energetic couple has also embraced

the Eat My Lunch appeal to help Kiwi children in need. They

strongly believe in giving back and in being part of the

community.

That carries over in how much they care about their clients.

“It is important to us that we are not intimidating,” explains

Cathy. They are a down-to-earth couple who want to make

a difference to their clients’ lives. Their own experience

of raising children means they know what a family needs,

and Cathy’s experience in the travel sector helps her to

understand a client then work out what will suit them best.

Selling up and moving house needs attention to detail and

an understanding of timelines, something they both excel

at. Ian’s experience as a chef, in retail and as a manager of

supermarkets, gives him the ability to meet the real needs of

real people by making the commercial world user-friendly.

Cathy and Ian’s friendliness, kindness, and desire to help

their clients really shine through. Their aim is to help you

sell your current property so you can find the right home for

your family to happily grow up in, or for empty-nesters to

comfortably grow old in.

result you achieved in selling my brothers home.

You managed to sell the property within our

expected pricing and also within a very short time

dedication to both myself and Brenda as clients has

been unsurpassed. Your focus on the end result

was beyond question and your detailed reporting

back to us during the selling period was also very

much appreciated I would have no hesitation

in recommending yourself to others who value

professionalism, honesty and integrity. Thank you.

I would like to say that you were most helpful,

professional and through in all the dealings that I had

to do with you during the selling of my property in

Christchurch and that I would recommend you to

anyone wanting to sell. Thank you Ian and all the staff

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.

The tree of LIFE

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

IS YOUR BRAIN SHRINKING?

Brain fog, forgetful, feeling old, low energy, mood swings,

difficulty sleeping, pins & needles, numbness in legs

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.

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

FREE Arts & Design

course, with NCEA built in

For those looking for a role that combines

artistic and digital talents, then this

outstanding, FREE, entry level course

delivered by local Training Provider Trainme,

is perfect for those wishing to pursue, graphic

design, photography or digital media as a

career.

The course covers the introduction to media

techniques such as drawing and photography.

Students will learn to use design software

and create their own design concepts while

collaborating with other students on creative

projects.

This course is FREE to students aged 16 to 19

and they only have to have NCEA 1 to join.

Students without NCEA 1 can be admitted, if

they show artistic or digital aptitude.

“Many feel that school is not working for

them or they left without qualifications,”

says Rhys Pollard, Marketer with tertiary

educator Trainme. “While not necessarily

academically minded, they do have artistic

talents and are very much into digital

technology.”

“This FREE six-month Trainme course,

combines these in a very hands-on, practical

way, giving them an intro

into various digital media.

This way, they can decide

which direction to pursue

as their career focus.”

“As an NZQA approved

programme, NCEA credits

are built in, so if they

apply themselves, they

can graduate with a New

Zealand Certificate in Arts

and Design Level 2, as well

as gaining credits towards NCEA level 1 or

2.” Says Pollard.

“NCEA results will depend on how many

credits they bring to the course to start with,

but as it’s a fun subject, it won’t feel like school

at all.”

Successful Graduates from this programme

NOR’WEST NEWS

could pathway

into higher study

in media arts,

which could

include graphic

design, video

production,

photography

or one of the

many emerging

digital-based

careers. Places

are limited, so students are encouraged to

apply as soon as they can.

A classic Kiwiana bach

46 Bayview Road, Charteris Bay

Price: $405,000

3 bedrooms | 1 bathroom | 1 kitchen/dining room | 1 living room | Off-street parking | Listing Number: 8375

Think Marmite, Pavlova, the All Blacks,

Buzzy Bees etc. etc., this quirky character

filled 3 bedroom classic bach takes us back

to a time when life was simple and less

complicated.

Nestled amongst large mature Manuka

and native trees and enjoying some of

the very best uninterrupted views in the

Harbour this wee charmer is on the market

for the first time in about 60 years. Set on

2 levels, private, sunny and with off-street

parking.

The living area which is upstairs to take

in those magnificent views has a woodburner

to keep things cosy. An added

bonus is a sleep-out set away from the

house and the 979m 2 site is bush clad so no

lawns to mow.

Only approx. 25 minutes drive from

the city come and discover the beauty

of Charteris Bay and all the area has to

offer including Orton Bradley Park and

golf course, beautiful walks and beaches,

nearby tennis courts and cafés and a short

ferry trip to check out Lyttelton.

Being so close to the city makes these

baches very useable, no more hours in

the car and it feels like you are in another

world.
