From Ilam to

touring with a

Broadway star

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN SARAH Greenwood-

Buchanan retired from a long career

in hairdressing, she never expected

to land a job working for one of

Broadway’s biggest stars.

But in 2012 English singer Elaine

Paige was on the hunt for a personal

dresser during her tour of New

Zealand, Australia and Asia.

Greenwood-Buchanan, who works

on hair and make-up at The Court

Theatre and lives in Ilam, landed the

job.

Earlier this month, she started

travelling and working with Paige

again on her tour of Australasia

which finished last week.

Teenage

taggers

caught

by police

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

POLICE HAVE caught six

youths they believe were involved

in a tagging spree throughout

Halswell.

They want people who have

had their properties or vehicles

tagged to call police in a bid to

gauge the extent of the vandalism

committed.

Police are dealing with six

youths aged between 13-15

involved with the vandalism that

occurred on January 28.

At least two cars and three

fences were vandalised, along with

a tool shed broken into at Aidanfield

where an axe was stolen and

found lodged into a lawn.

It is suspected further tagging

took place in the early hours of

Tuesday morning.

The vandalism took place in the

Aidanfield/Westlake/Halswell

area. Hornby police youth aid

worker Senior Constable Bruce

Ward said police are uncertain

about to the extent of the damage

done. But he said in the past police

have found people do not report

incidents of tagging when they

should be.

LOGAN DUNN might only be 15, but he’s

already making his mark on the bowling

green.

On page 14 today, we highlight the

youngster’s victory in the Canterbury

men’s first and second first year championship.

Logan comes from good bowls stock. His father Jason is a

handy player and those genes have also rubbed off onto Logan’s

16-year-old brother Jordan.

In the semi-final, Logan prevailed Jordan. No doubt those two

will continue to face each other in the years to come.

Logan was in the Halswell four which was runner up in the

open section. It also included his father and Darryl Hawker,

the current Canterbury coach, and part of the great Halswell

premier rugby league team during the 1980s.

Businesses bid for direct access

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BUSINESSES HAVE banded

together in a bid to get back

direct access to their shopping

area on Main South Rd.

A petition with almost 150

signatures has been collected by

businesses calling for a rightturning

bay along Main South

Rd, opposite Harvard Ave.

They are concerned patronage

could be declining as customers

travelling towards Hornby are

unable to directly access their

businesses.

The issue was raised

in October when the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board approved a

recommendation to ban vehicles

from turning right off Main

South Rd or make U-turns at the

Harvard Ave intersection.

Board chairman Mike Mora

said at the time a turning bay

could be put in and a report on

the issue is expected back in

April.

“The board has always been

supportive of a turning bay,” he

said.

However, city council staff

have not started an investigation

into the situation.

Vehicles which want to access

businesses opposite Harvard Ave

have to perform a U-turn about

1km further along Main South

Rd. The petition was presented

to the board by RA Shearings

Contractors director Bob

Shearing and DA Lewis director

Mark Lewis.

Mr Shearing, a former city

councillor, said his business has

been there for more than 40

years and there has never been a

problem with the road.

He said there are about 20

businesses in the shopping block

with about 200-300 employees.

“We certainly don’t believe it

was ever dangerous or is . . . they

need to make the corner safe to

do U-turns and the only way to

do that now is to put a turning

bay into it which is easy to do.”

City council transport

operations manager

Steffan Thomas said there have

been 12 crashes reported in the

past five years – one serious

injury and three minor injury

crashes.

Mr Shearing said if people

can’t turn there, they will go to

another business.

CALL FOR CHANGE:

Business owners Bob

Shearing and Mark

Lewis have collected

a petition with nearly

150 signatures to have

a turning bay installed

on Main South Rd

opposite Harvard Ave.

He is being supported by Mr

Lewis and Chipmunks Playland

& Cafe Wigram business partner

Dell Lu. Mr Lu said he believes

he has lost customers due to the

access issue.

The city council originally

installed the signs because there

was no turning bay.

Mr Thomas said right and

U-turning traffic obstructs the

traffic flow along Main South

Rd and the city council needs to

deal with the safety issue before

a turning bay can be put in.

Has your property been tagged?

•From page 1

“Half a dozen kids can tag a

lot of places so we want to be on

top of this really quickly,” Senior

Constable Ward said.

Several youths had gone to

a house in Halswell

on Sunday night and

unbeknownst to the

parent they snuck out

in the night, picked up

more youths, consumed

alcohol and spraypainted

properties, he

said. The tagging was

brought to the police’s

attention by one of the

parents who had seen one of the

boys covered in spray paint.

“The parents are horrified,”

Senior Constable Ward said.

Residents on Wigram Rd, near

Westlake Park were one of the

unfortunate targets on a Monday

morning.

A resident, who did not wish

Bruce Ward

to be named, woke up at about

1.15am to a light being shone in

her window before finding

two vehicles had been badly

tagged. Senior Constable Ward

said either the youths or their

parents may have to

pay for reparation or

community service

and they will have their

photos and

fingerprints taken

for further use. “If it

runs into thousands of

dollars we might have

to think where we take

these youths. They may

have to go to the youth court.”

If your property or vehicle was

vandalised between January 28

and 29 call police on 363 7435.

UNFORTUNATE: The damage sustained from six youths who went on a tagging spree

throughout Halswell.

Life on the road with a

musical theatre legend

DREAM JOB: Sarah Greenwood-Buchanan has been working

as a personal hairdresser, tour companion and assistant for

Broadway star Elaine Paige.

•From page 1

Well known for her work in

musical theatre, Paige’s career

came into the spotlight when

she played Eva Peron in Andrew

Lloyd Webber’s production of

Evita in 1978.

Greenwood-Buchanan said she

was “very privileged” to be asked

back to work as Paige’s personal

hairdresser, tour companion and

personal assistant.

“I think she likes me because

we like a lot of the same things

. . . the fact I can help her with

her hair and make-up is a bit of a

treat for her because she usually

always does it herself. We just get

on really well,” she said.

While Greenwood-

Buchanan was in charge

of setting up Paige’s dressing

room, she said Paige preferred to

get ready and decide what to wear

by herself.

She described Paige as a “classy

lady” who knows how to make

herself look a “million dollars.”

“She is absolutely lovely. She

is very down to earth, she has a

fantastic sense of humour. We

have a lot of laughs,” Greenwood-

Buchanan said.

She said it was a “career

highlight” to work with Paige.

“I remember listening to her

songs in the 80s . . . I was in awe

of her voice, her presence and

persona.”

Touring with Paige in 2012

“kicked off a massive career”

for Greenwood-Buchanan who

“didn’t really know” what she

was going to do after 29 years as

a hairdresser. She has since been

involved in sourcing and styling

wigs, hairdressing, make-up and

managing wardrobes backstage

for shows.

Following her first tour with

Paige, Greenwood-Buchanan

was contacted by one of The

Court Theatre’s leading directors

to work on wigs and hair

backstage.

“I haven’t looked back really. I

have been contracted to do this

work ever since . . . it is a whole

new career,” she said.

Greenwood-Buchanan has also

led an exciting career on stage,

playing the lead role of Velma

Kelly in Showbiz Christchurch’s

production of Chicago in 2008.

She is also a co-director

and co-performer in vocal

trio The Starlets, and hopes to

perform more for the public this

year.

Historic hall could be a heritage site

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

YALDHURST’S historic war

memorial hall could be a heritage

site.

A site visit made by the city

council’s heritage team recently

has found the hall contains heritage

values which means it could

be protected under the District

Plan. If the hall was scheduled

under the District Plan as a heritage

building, a resource consent

would be needed to enable the

demolition, head of community

support, governance and partnerships

John Filsell.

The site visit also identified the

hall is physically intact and has

not changed since 1954 when it

was built. But Mr Filsell said a

research and evidence gathering

phase is needed to provide a full

picture.

Yaldhurst Memorial Hall

Committee member Michelle

Clark said it “absolutely” believes

the hall has historical significance

not only for the city but a

memorial point of view.

She said it would be positive if

the hall was a heritage building

under the district plan.

Discussions of the demolition

of the hall have been ongoing

since 2015. The hall may also be

thrown a lifeline with the possibility

of it being offered back to

the community for restoration.

A report exploring options

on the future of hall will be presented

to the community board

between April and June by city

council staff. But Mr Filsell said

it is too early establish what the

options are as not all information

is available.

City council staff recommended

demolishing the hall on

Pound Rd.

Yaldhurst Rural Residents’

Association chairwoman

Sara Harnett-Kikstra said

the community is hoping the

money set aside for demolishing

the building could go towards

restoring it.

HOPE: The Yaldhurst Memorial Hall could be a heritage site.

Students nuts and bolts about robots

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BURNSIDE HIGH School

students with a flair for

electronics will take their own

robot to a national competition.

Aditi Sharma, Alisha Sangwan

and Aarya Advilkar have spent

hours joining wheels, axles,

motors and gears to create their

own robotic machine.

But the hard work has paid

off, with the students travelling

to the Vex Robotics National

Competition in Auckland later

this month.

The competition requires

students to build and

programme a robot, which

will then undertake a series of

challenges.

The students have designed

their robot to launch balls

through a catapult design, go up

onto platforms and flip flags.

It is controlled by a remote

controller.

Aditi, 15, said it is an

opportunity for them as they can

meet other people who share the

same interests.

They have been working on

building the robot since January

last year and have spent time in

their school holidays working on

the project.

BUILDERS: Burnside High School students Alisha Sangwan, Aditi Sharma and Aarya Advilkar will

be taking their robot to the Vex Robotics National Competition

Alisha, 13, said the students

are hoping to earn a good

placing in the competition.

“Top 50 would be good, but the

least would be getting experience

and new ideas of what other

people think,” she said.

All three students share an

interest in electronics and how

robotics could impact society in

the future.

Alisha said while she doesn’t

think “robots are going to take

over the world” learning about

them is helpful if you want

to go into different types of

technology.

She said the programming

for the robot has similarities to

science, technology, engineering

and mathematics.

Aarya, 14, said she “likes

robotics so much” and thinks

it will help her in the future as

she is considering becoming an

architect.

“I like to plan ideas for the

robots and how it can compete

in the game and how it can fulfil

the task within the game,” she

said.

Aditi said she is taking three

technology subjects this year and

is interested in pursuing a career

in engineering.

“I think robots would be a

good part of society, they can

help in so many ways. They can

do things humans can’t,” she

said.

About 80 teams from around

New Zealand are taking part in

the event which aims to increase

the awareness of robotics in

school communities.

Why Riccarton Rd is being upgraded

The city council answers

some of the most common

questions about why it is

upgrading Riccarton Rd

Major roadworks to begin this

month will involve upgrading

damaged underground pipes

and rebuilding the road to

accommodate bus priority

measures. The nearly two-year

project is not expected to be

completed until December 2020.

Why does this work have to

be done now?

The sewer pipes that run underneath

Riccarton Rd are nearly

100 years old. They have reached

the end of their lifespan and

need replacing. If the city council

delays replacing them, there is a

risk they could fail, resulting in

major disruption and roadworks.

The road surface is also in poor

condition, with damage evident

in many areas. At the same time

as resurfacing, bus priority will

be added measures so that buses

can travel more easily along Riccarton

Rd, which will cut travel

times along this busy route.

Why is it going to take almost

two years?

If the city council is only

resurfacing the road it could

complete the upgrade in a much

shorter time frame. It is because

TURMOIL: The city council has answered some of the most common questions on why

Riccarton Rd needs to be upgraded.

it needs to also replace the water

and sewer pipes that run beneath

the road that this project is likely

to take until December 2020 to

complete.

What’s the most time-consuming

aspect of the work?

The sewer pipe is located 4m

below the road so a very deep

trench has to be dug. The trench

sides need to be supported so it is

a time-consuming process. Work

on the trench can only proceed

about 1m a day. Contractors are

starting at three different work

sites to speed up the process.

Can’t you speed-up the

work by working at night and

weekends?

Contractors will be working

nights and weekends when

required, but during the sewer

pipework, it is dangerous to work

at night because good lighting

is needed. There are also motels

and a rest home along the route

and night work would be very

disruptive for them so it is a case

of balancing the needs of the

whole community.

Why are you putting a treelined

median strip down the

middle?

In 2015, the city council asked

the community for views on two

upgrade options – one with a

tree-lined median and one without.

The option with trees along

a central median was preferred.

This option was subsequently

recommended by the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board to the city council’s

infrastructure, transport and

environment committee, which

approved the scheme in August

2015. The tree-lined median

uses space made available by the

removal of car parks. There is

still one lane of traffic in each direction,

as there is now. The treelined

median should help to slow

traffic speeds and make the area

safer for pedestrians, cyclists and

drivers. The trees, along with

other streetscape enhancements,

such as new furniture, paving

and landscaping, will also make

this part of central Riccarton

more attractive and a destination

rather than solely a transport

corridor.

Do other parts of Riccarton

Rd need upgrading?

The stretch of Riccarton

Rd between Deans Ave and

Harakeke St has already been

upgraded. No other work of

this scale is planned but some

improvements to intersections

and other facilities, such as for

cycling, are scheduled to occur

over the next 10 years.

Western News’ article on

extending the opening

hours at the Te Hāpua:

Halswell Summer Pool

WESTERN NEWS

this and you just might find they

pull their own behaviour into

line as a car community. Not a

just a few boy racers making the

rest look bad.

Madeline Howe – I think

the pool hours really need to

be extended. I have lived in

Halswell for four years and I

am a ratepayer and have never

used the pool because of the

volume of people there in peak

times which by the look of it is

all the time bus loads of kids

from schools that aren’t from

Halswell or nowhere near. As the

generations get older, to be blunt

they don’t want to be sharing a

pool with kids diving onto them

from every angle. I would love

to go swimming on a hot day at

8am onwards but not when every

man and his dog is there. Considering

being told to keep your

body moving as you get older,

it’s all the younger generation

getting catered for. I brought this

point up about three years ago

when I gave up work but sadly

the pool wasn’t opened until

3pm when the school went back.

Very disappointed with lack of

feedback or support. What are

rates for? Get active and keep

moving it would help if I could

in the pool that was meant for

everyone.

Gary Knight – As a community-based

facility, the Te Hapua:

Halswell Centre community

pool is a true asset to Halswell.

To utilise it to fullest advantage

would deem the extension of the

present opening hours to be a

pro-active step, for the benefit of

not only Halswell residents but

many from other areas enjoying

this facility. In spite of patronage

levels fluctuating at this venue

over different time periods, rationale

must prevail from a city

council perspective and concede

the necessity of extended pool

hours to cater for the rapid

population growth of Halswell,

projected to be 34000 to 40000

by 2035.

CHANGE: A push has been made for the Te Hāpua Halswell Summer Pool hours to be extended. ​

Chris Huddlestone – You

move into an area where there

are racetracks which have

been there since 1963 and you

complain about the noise . . . go

figure.

Stacey Benton – It’s a no

win situation. People complain

about burnouts on the street

wanting them to go to a place

where they can do burnouts and

then complain they are doing

burnouts in a controlled environment.

What the hell . . . it’s a

racetrack what do people expect?

Matt Reid – Yaldhurst Rural

Residents’ Association is always

whinging. Noise, dust, flight

paths, quarries. And yet all winter

the rural residents are burning

huge amounts of rubbish.

Kyla Ellis – If they don’t like

the noise then why move into

an area or close to a racetrack.

Don’t like it, do your homework

and move somewhere else. The

race track was there before you

moved into the area.

happening once a year. It’s a controlled

environment. Pretty sure

they weren’t using it all hours of

the night. Seems selfish, let them

have it, it’s not like they are using

it every weekend.

Ricky Ireland – Weekend

from hell? It went from noon till

5.30pm on a Saturday afternoon.

Sorry Christchurch, we tried

though.

Karyn Molloy – I think you

will find that most of the drivers

at that burnout competition are

not the young ones that do burnout

out on public roads. Surely

once a year is not bad compared

to every weekend on the streets, I

hear a lot in my area every weekend

then see results on the roads

when I go out during the week.

People wanted a pad for them

and now complain when someone

uses it. Get over it people.

Tiffany Burke – If you live

so close to the track, chances are

you know when they are going to

have big events. So maybe make

plans, have a weekend away, or

buy earplugs. I live close to it,

heard the cars, but didn’t sound

anymore than usual.

Neil Ward – The speedway

been there for years and years.

People move into the area knowing

it’s there then complain

about the noise.

Robyn Jones – I don’t

understand all these people that

complain about the noise, yet

they chose to move into the area

or build a house when there was

an existing track. I can hear it

from my place it doesn’t faze me

in the slightest. It’s only a few

weekends every now and again

and I think the people that use

the track are entitled to some fun

if you don’t like the noise why

move there when the track has

been there long before the new

subdivision. Bunch of complainers.

CJ Hendry – Giving the

car culture a place to go that is

already to be used is one of the

best ideas the city council has

come up with yet. Create some

boundaries . . . like sober, fully

licenced drivers, cars with warrants

of fitness and registrations.

But most of all give them somewhere

to go . . . where they can

Jimmy Harvey – That racetrack

was there long before you.

Don’t like it? Do your research

before you move there.

Ryan Trounce – Section 10

of the RMA should allow its use

to continue. I guess that residents

that are complaining are new to

the area, post-earthquake had

no choice to move into a new

subdivision. Not directly their

choice, but they are probably on

the approach for Christchurch

International Airport too and

complain about that.

Mary Ann Grace – We had

the weekend from hell What a

joke. Hell is starving to death in

a third world country, lady!

Simon Marshall – As the

owner of the safety crew who

was at this event I would like to

say that the noise of this event

was not over the 90db. I would

say the speedway this weekend

was louder than the burnouts.

Lyn Morris – Two complaints

out of hundreds of houses

around there.

Ben Ditmer – This was a

fantastic event. There was only

burnout noise from noon-3pm.

Don’t buy a house near a racetrack.

James FitzPatrick – There’s

no point using a skid pad at Ruapuna.

The track gets plenty of

noise complaints from legitimate

events and use as it is. Say they

open access to the skid pad for

said boy racers to use on Friday

and Saturday nights, they would

surely have to close it at a reasonable

hour, say 10pm. I’d doubt

everyone will just jump in their

cars and call it a night cause

the pads closed. A dedicated

site away from residential areas

would be best. Station a few

police during the nights it’s open

to keep people in line, inspect

any dodgy vehicles and breath

test drivers.

“The staff here are

lovely, giving really

good care.”

Nicky Anderson, the new

clinical manager at Ryman

Healthcare’s Woodcote

Retirement Village, likes the

warmth and friendliness and

easy access around the village,

where she is already drawing

out the best in people.

A registered nurse, Nicky

has an outgoing personality

and shines with enthusiasm

when she is working with

fellow staff members and

residents. She’s keen to build

on what is already a strong

team of happy, kind and highly

motivated staff.

She has spent much of her

working life in Canterbury as

well as bringing up a family

of four.

Her career has seen her work

in a wide variety of health care

jobs and Ryman has welcomed

her management skills and

vast experience in acute clinical

roles. These have included

district nursing, nursing at a

medical centre and previously

working at another Ryman

village – the Ngaio Marsh

Retirement Village.

Since her arrival at the village

she has settled back into the

Ryman way and loves the

friendly banter between staff.

She was appointed to the

role after Woodcote’s previous

clinical manager, Jacky

Fitzsimon, transferred to a

Ryman village in Melbourne.

She and Village Manager

Liz Hampton go back many

years, having trained

and worked together at

Christchurch Hospital.

Nicky likes the open spaces

in and around Woodcote with

its single level townhouses,

studio apartments and

resthome. The landscaped

gardens are gorgeous and there

are plenty of outdoor spaces

undercover as well as lounges

at the village where residents,

friends and family can gather.

The lovely facilities include a

dining room, lounges, library,

petanque court, indoor bowls

and hair salon.

There is also an activities

programme for residents who

can choose to join in with

things such as the Ryman

Triple A exercise programme

or events and outings.

“Quite a few of the

family members have been

introducing themselves to me.

Woodcote’s got quite a nice

feel to it. The residents have

got their photos up and like to

tell me about their families.”

Resident June Mounce says

it is great to have Nicky at

the village and she is doing a

good job.

Over the years she has

worked with young and old,

however, likes the fact that

she can chat away with a

resident while changing a

dressing or attending to their

regular medications.

Nicky Anderson (centre) with fellow workers Anu Gill (left) and Lisa Mazey (right).

“I love the tales they tell,

talking about things like life

experience. That’s when you

get to know them,” she says.

The support from Ryman

includes the introduction

of the exclusive myRyman

Care app.

The app is designed for

staff to have residents care

information at their ngertips

on a tablet. There is a tablet in

every care residents room and

allows staff to have more time

with the residents rather than

on paperwork. The electronic

care device is colour coded and

a particularly strong tool for

resthome care, she says.

She has had members

of her own family in care

facilities, so recognises the

ADVERTISEMENT

importance of the standard

of care and the impact of this to

every individual resident and

family member.

“Ryman is excellent. They

dot the i’s, cross the t’s and

provide great care.

“The staff here are lovely,

giving really good care and

they’re good to each other;

they’re a great team.”

Peace of mind

retirement

Residents enjoy a lovely and private room with

ensuite and the very best care from our staff.

Andrew Foster – They move

there because the housing is

cheap because of the racetrack

then complain hoping it will get

closed and their house prices

Andrew Lawrence – Listening

to their whinging is more

damaging than the sound of

the burnouts. Just shut your

Desexing pets is responsible

SPCA

southern

region

general

manager

Barry Helem

writes about

problems

the centre based in Hornby

faces when people don’t

desex their pets

In April last year, a little kitten

named April Penny arrived at

the SPCA Christchurch Centre.

The vets noticed an

abnormality in her chest, and

an X-ray showed her sternum

growing inwards towards her

vital organs.

She would have eventually

died from internal bleeding if

she didn’t receive urgent care.

A surgery like this hasn’t

always been possible at SPCA

due to limited resources, but

fortunately for April Penny, she

arrived at our centre just after

our SPCA hospital opened up.

It was a great feeling when she

received the surgery she needed

to live a happy and healthy life.

In 2018 we also began building

our new ringworm unit that will

open in March this year.

After years of fundraising,

we will finally have a facility to

properly manage the extremely

infectious disease, that affects

numerous cats and dogs each

year.

But even with new facilities,

our centre still struggles over the

summer period – kitten season.

This summer has been particularly

busy in Christchurch,

with hundreds of abandoned

and stray kittens like April

Penny needing our help – all

because people don’t desex their

pets.

WESTERN NEWS

When Ollie the kitten arrived

at SPCA, he had such bad cat

flu he needed surgery to remove

his eye, and Popeye the kitten’s

conjunctivitis was so severe, it

looked like he had already lost

his eye from the infection.

There are countless other cats

and kittens with similar stories.

Every year the SPCA’s main

goals are to educate New

Zealanders how to be responsible

pet owners, break the cycle of

cruelty, and hopefully see fewer

animals like April Penny, Ollie

and Popeye needing our help.

It’s not small feat trying to

achieve this change, and we

can only do it with help

Teen bowls his way to men’s title

• By Gordon Findlater

TEENAGER Logan Dunn has

shown he has a bright future in

bowls.

The 15-year-old Halswell

player defeated Jonathan

Truesdale, of Cust, 21-10 to win

the Bowls Canterbury first and

second year centre title.

Logan comes from a talented

bowls family. In the semi-final,

he defeated his 16-year-old

brother, Jordan, 21-12.

“He usually beats me when

we’re practicing but I got on top

of him that day,” said Logan.

He also teamed up with

his father, Jason Dunn, in

the Halswell fours team and

made the final before losing to

Rangiora 4-20.

“As soon as we step on the

green, he’s just another player.

He accepts that and he wouldn’t

want it any other way either,”

said Jason.

Logan completed a trio of

final appearances by making

his way to the under-20 singles

final which was taken out by

Rangiora’s Rebecca Jelfs 21-19 in

a tight match.

The Bowls Canterbury centre

championships began with

round-robin play in November

before the finals weekend at

Parklands from January 26-27.

Although the family represent

Halswell, they travel to the club

for inter-club each Saturday from

their home in Hawarden.

FAMILY TIES: As well as winning the Bowls Canterbury first and second year centre title,

Logan Dunn (right) finished second in the men’s fours with Darryl Hawker (left), his father Jason

Dunn and Paul Matheson.

“That’s just given the kids

the best opportunity to fulfil

what they want to in the game.

There’s not enough up here in

our area. Now they’ve got good,

hard competitive bowlers to go

against and get their game to the

next level,” said Jason, who is a

well know greyhound trainer. He

grew up in Sydney and pursued

bowls into his mid-20s. He

played representative bowls for

New South Wales but gave the

sport away when he moved to

Christchurch in 2007.

Logan didn’t know about

bowls until being introduced to

it by his father when he took him

to the green two years ago.

“It just clicked and I’ve liked

it from day dot,” said Logan. “I

played rugby for a year but I’m

too small for that.”

Canterbury men’s coach

Darryl Hawker – who played in a

Halswell fours team with Logan

– believes the 15-year-old could

SPORTS

go a long way in bowls.

“I think he could have a

big future in the game, his

commitment to improving as

a bowler is impressive,” said

Hawker.

Practicing three to four times

a week, Logan dreams of playing

the sport professionally one day.

“I want to be world champion,”

he said.

If his progression in the sport

continues, the Sydney-born

bowler could find himself

having to make a choice between

representing New Zealand or

Australia one day.

The family’s current rugby

allegiances are split, with the

boys backing the Wallabies and

the girls cheering on the All

Blacks.

As for Logan’s future bowling

allegiances: “It all depends who

gives me the offer,” he said.

Other Halswell players to

Centuries old folk remedy supports

good health!

A fermented liquid health

tonic offers an array of

powerful health benefits. It is

none other than the popular

apple cider vinegar or ACV.

Since the time of Hippocrates – the “Father

of Medicine” – ACV has been renowned for its

curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS & FOLK

MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis reports how he

found that Vermonters who regularly consumed

ACV and Honey had excellent health with

many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the

farm even when well into their eighties. He also

noted the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients reporting almost

total relief after taking a course of the

mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider

vinegar counteracted calcium

deposits and helped the body

control calcium use. He also noted

that Vermonters who consumed

ACV and H around meal time

had excellent blood pressure and

circulation. The reason he found

was that protein foods thickened

the blood and vinegar thinned it.

As the blood thickens it cannot

pass as easily and quickly through

the blood vessels and capillaries. This

poor blood flow would reduce cellular

health by limiting nutrients to the cells

as well as waste elimination from the cells.

To prevent cell damage the body naturally

increases blood pressure but this puts more stress

on the blood vessels, organs and heart. Having

ACV and H with meals will help prevent protein

raising the blood pressure. It also contributes

to a feeling of greater well-being because the

thinner blood circulates quickly and more easily

through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found regular

consumption of CV and H to be an excellent

health tonic with numerous Health attributes.

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all the

goodness of the apple in a form that is readily

accepted by the bodyGood health starts with good

digestion and assimilation of nutrients. ACV taken

before food will stimulate and promote healthy

digestion and assimilation of vital nutrients for

good health. A well-functioning digestive system

helps prevent disease by neutralising any toxic

substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all ACV is produced

in the traditional way and results are likely to

prove disappointing with these other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV & ACV with 20%

Manuka Honey is produced in Canterbury from

Organic whole apples in the traditional way. It is

double strength so you can use less.

Device to prevent

snoring

Why put up with broken sleep, when

help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance

that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and

dry and raw throats.

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth

for comfort, and a follow up service is

provided.

Denise Lim has been involved with

Snores for 22 years and has had a 98%

success rate with

people using the

appliance. Snoring

can be a health

hazard, causing

sleep apnoea, where

the person actually

stops breathing for

short periods.

It can cause

short-term memory

loss, tiredness and

contribute to high

blood pressure.

The Snorex

device does not feel

restrictive, is noninvasive

and carries

a money-back

guarantee.

Many people are referred by ear, nose

and throat specialists, however, anyone can

phone for an appointment.

For an information pack or to discuss

the Snorex further, phone Denise Lim on

377 4318 or check out the website

www.snorex.co.nz

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.
