Burglary

caps off

St Albans

couple’s

misfortune

• By Jess Gibson

AFTER LOSING a mother and

two grandfathers to cancer, a

St Albans couple thought their

misfortune was over.

But when Georgia Whipps,

26, and her husband Shayden,

28, returned home from work

on February 4 to find several

household items missing, it was a

different story.

Rummaged drawers and piles of

clothing on the floor were also a

dead giveaway that their home had

been broken into.

A camera, two speakers and a

laptop were among the items taken

– but the most sentimental was

Mrs Whipps’ jewellery box.

Inside it she held everything her

mother Carol had left to her before

she died of pancreatic cancer in her

50s in 2017.

It included a necklace with her

mother’s fingerprint that was made

at the funeral home.

It also contained vintage gold

and pearl items which her mother

gave her to wear at her wedding in

November 2017 – three weeks after

she died.

GEORGIA AND Shayden Whipps have

had a tough year, losing three family

members to cancer (see page 1).

And now a low-life burglar has made it

even worse.

Among the items stolen from their home

was something that can’t be replaced – her late mother Carol’s

jewellery.

The haul included a necklace with her mother’s fingerprint on

it.

There were other vintage gold and pearl items that Carol

gave Georgia to wear at her wedding in November 2017 – three

weeks after she died.

Says Georgia: “I don’t care about all the other stuff, just the

things that money can’t replace. That’s stuff we will never be

able to get back.”

If you know where the jewellery is, do the decent thing.

Petition launched over QE II school zone

• By Julia Evans

RESIDENTS ARE rallying to get

excluded suburbs back into the

Shirley Boys and Avonside Girls’

High School zone.

In April, the Ministry of

Education came up with a

compromise for a 13-year

transitional zone which would

allow students living in the

current zones around Richmond,

Shirley, Avonside, Dallington, St

Albans and Edgeware to enrol at

the new multimillion

dollar QE

II Park campus.

The zone will be

reviewed in May,

a month after

students start at

the new school.

Bebe Frayle

But residents

from the

excluded suburbs have launched

a petition, which will be sent

to the ministry, calling for the

transitional zone to be made

permanent. So far it has 100

signatures.

Dallington Residents

Association chairwoman Bebe

Frayle said the group always

planned to lobby for the zone to

be made permanent.

“But what kicked off our

regrouping was the info that

Shirley Boys has closed their outof-zone

roll as soon as it opened,”

and Avonside Girls’ High School campus permanent.

she said. SBHS closed enrolments

for out-of-zone students last

month – two months before it is

due to move to the new campus.

“For us, it’s all about gathering

support, and the plan would

be to talk to communities and

the school, mostly the people

affected,” she said.

Being permanently excluded

from the zone would impact on

house prices, divide communities

and disrupt families, she said.

“We’re placed in a very weird

position and as residents, we can’t

say that this is our local school.

We don’t have one,” she said.

“It’s a weird and unfair position

for families to be in.”

But Ministry of Education

deputy secretary sector

enablement and support Katrina

Casey said the changes were

made to the enrolment schemes

to reflect the new location.

“The enrolment schemes will

help Avonside Girls’ High School,

and Shirley Boys’ High School

make effective and efficient use

of their new schools and will

give them the ability to manage

future rolls and reduce the risk of

overcrowding,” she said.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

NEW CHANGES ON

THE HORIZON

What an exciting year 2019 is going to be for

the McMaster & Heap Family. A new veterinary

building, a specialist veterinarian joining the

ranks, more skilled nurses required and our

family size is fast shrinking with sons off to

pursue their dreams.

On the home front we have gone from a

family of 5 to a family of 3. Our eldest son

Connor will go into his

second year of Veterinary

training at Massey

University in Palmerston

North. Most of Connors

summer holidays have

been spent doing

practical work for his

vet degree. He spent 5

weeks on a Sheep and

Beef farm in Methven.

Connor really enjoyed all

aspects of farm life from

ploughing fields, to

vaccinating and drenching stock

to driving all the farm machinery. He gained

valuable skills in reading animal behaviours

and how to handle them and learning about

management practices. He is now spending

time at a racing stable in Templeton and

seeing some equine veterinary work. It would

be fair to say his horse handling skills are

sketchy but nothing 2 weeks in a busy racing

stables can’t fix.

Dylan our tennis man

Connor Heap - 2nd year Vet

student doing Beef and sheep

farm practical work

Our 18 year old son Dylan left in January to

pursue his tennis dream in the US, gaining

a scholarship to the university of Minnesota

in Minneapolis. Within 2 days of touching

down he was back on a plane with the

team to a training camp in Florida. He will

study business and finance while over there.

At present he’s trying to acclimatize to

temperatures that have reached -45 degrees!!

Luckily for us, our youngest 14 year old son

Isaac ,is still living with Ma and Pa. Not for

long though something tells me ,as this son

can’t wait to travel the world, meet new

people and study overseas.

On the vet front we are very excited

to welcome Richard Lucy into the

McMaster and Heap family. Richard

went through Massey with Steve a wee

while ago now (graduated in 1992)

and fairly early on pursued Radiology

and Ultrasonography as his areas of

interest. Richard passed his Veterinary

Open 7 days

phone 338 2534, Fax 339 8624

e. mcmasterandheap@yahoo.co.nz

www.mcmasterheap.co.nz

Cardiology exams at the Royal Vet College in

London. On returning to NZL, Richard worked

in Auckland and Hamilton for several years

before retraining in human echocardiology

(ultrasound of the heart). He even did a stint

in human ultrasound working at Waikato

and Christchurch Public Hospitals. Richard

has since returned to his original vocation

and works solely performing

ultrasounds on the heart ,

musculoskeletal system and

abdomen of referral patients. He

will now see his South Island and

Christchurch referrals through

our practice, working Monday

through to Thursdays. Richard is

married to Linda and in his spare

time entertains his twin 3 year olds,

slaves away on his lifestyle block

and enjoys the rivers, mountains

and coasts that Canterbury and the

South Island has to offer. We are

thrilled to be able to offer Richards expert

skills and knowledge to our patients and

those that are referred to us.

So with the addition of Richard and our skilled

ultrasonographer Catherine, we will be able

to offer ultrasounds to patients Monday to

Friday.

We have just accepted a building tender to

get our exciting new build underway as soon

as possible. We are expanding quickly and

need more consulting rooms and a bigger

kenneling area as well as a state of the art

surgical suite. Works should start before the

end of the month and all going well, by the

end of August we will be enjoying loads

more space, a separate “cat only” waiting and

treatment space and loads more exciting

extras.

I apologize now for any disruptions and extra

building site noise but promise this that

the end result will be a great thing for our

patients.

We employed 4 fantastic new nurses last

year due to continued practice growth.

Olivia, Rachael, Danielle and Marysha have

all brought something new and special

into the team mix and its refreshing to have

enthusiastic, inspired and fun young nurses to

help us with the important work we do.

Visit our website for more

information on our staff.

Watch this space for more

developments on our

building project and our

awesome expanding team

of vets and nurses.

Residents question

Sawyers Arms Rd repairs

• By Jess Gibson

PAPANUI residents are

unsure why more repairs

are being made on Sawyers

Arms Rd.

Contractors have been

re-laying a stretch of the

road between Cotswold

Ave and Gardiners Rd due

to a problem with underlying

layers.

It will be the third time

the road has been repaired

within the stretch of road

between Highsted Rd and

Gardiners Rd since 2017.

Due to heavy traffic flow,

a reseal was made between

Highsted and Gardiners

Rds in November​ 2017,

which was then repaired in

June 2018 after the surface

started breaking up.

Harewood Ward city

councillor Aaron Keown

Keown said that decisions

need to start coming back

to community boards so

that they can let residents

know about any road

repairs in the area.

“The neighbours that

I spoke to weren’t happy.

They didn’t know why it

was being pulled up,” said

Cr Keown.

REPAIRS: Re-laying seal on Sawyers Arms Rd.

Sawyers Arms Rd resident

Barbara Purvis said

she was uncertain what the

reason was behind the new

repairs or who would be

paying for the mistakes.

City council road

maintenance manager

Mark Pinner said that

costs will be paid by the

contractor.

But Cr Keown said it was

still an “incredible waste of

resources” when there are

so many other roads that

need fixing.

“There are lots of other

roads where you can clearly

see there’s been a degrading

of the work that’s

been done, yet this one, as

far as anyone can see there

easy living

was nothing wrong with

it,” said Cr Keown.

He said that the recent

relay would likely be ruined

because the road had

“trucks going over it all

day during the prep work.”

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community

Board member Aaron

Campbell raised similar

concerns last year over the

“shoddy” reseal between

Highsted Rd and Gardiners

Rd.

In August, Mr Campbell

told the Nor’West News

that the repairs in June

took place because

“contractors didn’t do the

job up-to-scratch” in the

previous reseal.​

Safety upgrade for dangerous intersection

• By Julia Evans and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

THE CITY’S fourth most

dangerous junction could

become a T intersection in a bid

to reduce the number of crashes.

Plans for the $1 million safety

upgrade at the Middleton, Ilam

and Riccarton Rd intersection

were revealed last week by the

city council.

Restricting

Riccarton Rd

from Middleton

Rd to left turns

in and out

only, as well as

Sue

Chamberlain

narrowing the

road to allow

more footpath

space for pedestrians has been

proposed.

It was ranked the city’s fourth

most dangerous, raking up 40

crashes with varying degree of

injury since 2011.

The intersection is known as

being difficult to navigate because

of the off-set alignment of

the three roads.

The left turn slip lanes from

Ilam Rd into Riccarton Rd

would also be removed.

The proposed changes have

received mixed views.

Ilam and Upper Riccarton

Residents’ Association Sue

SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS: Safety improvements are planned for the intersection of Ilam,

Middleton and Riccarton Rds.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Chamberlain said it is “crazy”

vehicles will not be able to travel

from Middleton Rd to Ilam Rd

or turn right.

She said there should be

green arrows for vehicles

looking to turn right onto

Riccarton Rd.

“They should have a green

arrow on those corners which

will fix the problem just nicely

without having to do anything

else”.

But Elite Physiotherapy, which

is located near the intersection,

owner Michelle North said it is

an “extremely dangerous” intersection

and while the changes

will be inconvenient for the business,

it will be better in the end.

Receptionist Rita Noetzel said

she will “cross her fingers” when

she turns right from Ilam Rd

onto Riccarton Rd.

“At first I thought: ‘Oh my

gosh am I doing something illegal

but it is a right turn lane . . .’ it

is just a really tricky one because

there is no kind of turning lane,”

she said.

Her views were backed by

Central Riccarton Residents’ Association

chairwoman Joscelyne

Silcock, who said she dreads

driving out of Middleton Rd to

turn right onto Riccarton Rd.

But Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board deputy

chairwoman Helen Broughton

said she was concerned there

might be an “overload” of projects

on Riccarton Rd.

She said there is an argument

the project would need to be

done in conjunction with the

NorWest Arc Major Cycle Route.

The major Riccarton Rd

roadworks are due to begin this

month and the city council is

currently out for public consultation

on the South Express Major

Cycle Route – which will run

through Riccarton.

The intersection upgrades will

enable it to have facilities for

the cycleway including crossing

signals.

Public consultation will

run until March 11. For more

Help get rid of chlorine

WITH FEBRUARY traditionally

the hottest month of the year,

the city council is reminding

residents to keep doing their bit

to save water so it can work to

remove chlorine from the city’s

water supply as soon as possible.

The council is aiming for

the city’s drinking water to be

un-chlorinated by May, which

will mark 12 months since it

rolled out chlorine treatment

in response to advice from the

Canterbury medical officer of

health.

City council water supply

improvement programme

manager Helen Beaumont said

achieving the target depends

partly on people continuing to

use less water so wells can be

taken offline and upgraded as

needed.

“We’re definitely not out of the

woods yet, and we really need

people to keep watching their

water use so we can upgrade our

wells and continue to cut back

the chlorine across the city,” Ms

Beaumont said.

“We’re experiencing much

hotter days now, with less rain

in between, so the temptation

is to leave the garden sprinklers

on for longer or to turn them on

more often.

“We have no issue with people

watering their lawns or gardens,

but we do ask they use a handheld

avoids any waste, and only water

on alternate days between 9pm

and 7am, when it’s cooler.”

Sprinklers and garden

irrigators are the biggest users of

household water, but there are

plenty of other ways people can

help save, said Ms Beaumont.

“Taking shorter showers,

doing one less laundry load

a week, and sweeping your

driveway instead of hosing it

are all ways people can help

save water. It may not seem like

By May the city council

expects to have completed

temporary upgrades on 19

below-ground wells and to have

raised another 41 above ground,

bringing the total number of

secure wells to 98 out of 140.

“If we can upgrade those wells

Burglary caps off couple’s misfortune

•From page 1

Both Mr and Mrs Whipps’

grandfathers also died over

the last year. They said the

personal items that were taken

in the burglary were the most

valuable.

“I don’t care about all the

other stuff, just the things that

money can’t replace. That’s

stuff we will never be able to

get back,” said Mrs Whipps.

“It’s stuff that no one else is

going to appreciate,” she said.

Mr Whipps works as an

events and marketing coordinator

at PGG Wrightson

and Mrs Whipps is the head

teacher at BestStart pre-school.

The “house proud” couple

used their entire savings to

purchase and renovate their

villa two years ago.

They write a lifestyle blog

called Mooch Style, which

gives tips and advice to other

homeowners.​

“We work so hard to provide

content which inspires others

to do the same thing and then

we get burgled. You just feel

attacked and invaded,” said Mr

Whipps.

“For someone to just

completely come in and violate

it really takes away the love you

have for your home because

someone uninvited has been

in it.”

Mr Whipps said the burglars

came in through a window

that had been pried open.

He said their boxer dog

Frankie must have been

asleep during the burglary

as their neighbours did not

hear barking. The couple later

learned two other properties

and two cars in the area had

been burgled about noon.

Police investigated the

property the following day

and all that was found was the

print of an arm on a box which

determined the burglar was

male. To make matters worse

for the couple, they are battling

to get insurance for the stolen

items.

“It just sucks,” said Mr

Whipps.

For now, they have installed

a security alarm and cameras.

“If you have those things

you’re not only protecting your

own property you’re protecting

people in your area, it’s all

about your neighbourhood,”

said Mr Whipps.

Storyboard plan

could show

progress on

St Albans centre

RESIDENTS MAY soon be

able to read about the longwinded

development of the St

Albans Community Centre if a

storyboard at its temporary site

goes ahead.

While the Papanui-Innes

Community Board waits for

resource consent to build a

new community centre on

Colombo St, it is looking at an

effective way to show how it is

progressing.

Board chairwoman Ali

Jones said a storyboard at the

St Albans Tennis Club would

improve communication with

the community.

“Because of the time it’s taken

and the significance of the

project to the community, we

suggested that a storyboard is

put up at the current temporary

site to give the community

an idea of the visuals and the

timeframe, maybe with a little

bit of history,” said Ms Jones.

She said the storyboard would

be like the one used during

the recent redevelopment of St

Albans Park.

The board has contacted

council staff who are looking at

the cost of the proposal.

CHRISTCHURCH will

soon welcome its first former

refugees via the quota since the

earthquakes – and the New

Zealand Red Cross is getting

ready to help them settle.

Groups of about 20 former

refugees from Afghanistan and

Eritrea will arrive in the city

every eight weeks from March 1.

Christchurch’s Farahnaz

Khosravi, 47, is training to

become a refugee support

volunteer with the New Zealand

Red Cross and will work in a

small team to support a new

family transition into New

Zealand life. Ms Khosravi came

to Christchurch from Iran on

a skilled migrant visa with her

husband and children almost

five years ago.

She knows what it’s like to be

new to the country and felt it

was her duty to help other new

Kiwis feel at home.

“When I moved from Iran,

I had done all I could to

prepare from overseas – I

knew english, enrolled my

children in schools, rented

a house, I had even made an

appointment with the bank.

“Even with all that preparation

and information I had, it was

still challenging. I know it will

be much harder for refugees who

haven’t planned to be here, don’t

settlement manager Jo Fasheun

said refugee support volunteers

will help new Kiwis settle into

their homes, find their way

“All of that can be really

can support them to make those

challenges easier and bringing

some humour into it. It’s about

learning from each other along

A ST Andrew’s College trio

finished seventh overall and first

in the school’s division of the

three-person team section of the

Coast to Coast.

Henry Spark, Benjamin Leech

and Fiona Murray finished the

two-day teams event in a time of

13hr 32min and 42sec.

They were the first overall

school, fourth overall mixed

team and seventh overall open

team to cross the finish line at

New Brighton beach. It was the

first time a team of students

from St Andrew’s had entered

the event.

“They exceeded everyone’s

wildest expectations, to do that

well against some top adults,”

said St Andrew’s multisport coordinator

Greg Thompson.

Spark lives in Oxford and

spent plenty of time running

dry river beds in preparation for

the mountain run section of the

event. The year 12 student also

did two practice runs over the

course earlier in the summer.

Leech, who is year 12 at St Andrew’s,

is a mountain biker who

turned his focus to road cycling

after being loaned a bike for the

summer.

Murray – who completed the

67km kayak leg – comes from

strong Coast to Coast genes. Her

father Keith holds both the oneday

and two-day course records.

Her mother Andrea holds the

women’s one-day record.

The year 13 student began proceedings

on Saturday morning

at Kumara beach with a short

2.2km run before transitioning

to Leech for a 55km cycle. The

first day was then finished by

Spark when he completed the

33km mountain run.

“We looked at the results after

the first day and we were in seventh,

we couldn’t believe it,” said

Thompson.

The team then consolidated

their position on day two

which featured a 15km bike for

Leech, Murray’s 67km kayak

and Leech’s final 70km cycle to

the finish. A St Andrew’s trio

finished seventh overall and first

in the schools division at the

Coast to Coast.

Young guns come out firing at tennis champs

• By Gordon Findlater

NOR’WEST schools dominated

Ruru’s Tessa McCann in the

year 12-13 girls, St Bede’s Charlie

met Rangi Ruru’s Jade Feneon.

Abby won the first set 6-2 before

Jade retired hurt.

17-year-old Tessa. She dropped

just two games en route to the

final where she defeated fellow

Tech graduates in

ADVERTORIAL

demand from industry

Young technology graduates are being snapped

up by employers, with the rapidly growing New

Zealand ICT (information communications and

technology) industry hungry for skilled staff.

“There are lots of IT jobs, but not enough graduates

joining the marketplace,” says Gary Taylor, campus

manager of Vision College in Christchurch.

Vision College, a private training establishment with

campuses in Christchurch, Auckland, Pukekohe and

Hamilton, has seen huge demand from employers

for its graduating information technology students.

“In the future, there will be an even bigger shortfall,”

warns Taylor, who notes that IT industry occupations

are on Immigration New Zealand’s long-term skill

shortage list, reflecting the growth of the industry

and the rise in job vacancies. “The IT industry is

growing rapidly. We need to get more skilled

graduates ready to ride the wave.”

According to the latest annual TIN Report, the

revenue of the top 200 New Zealand technology

companies grew by 11 per cent to $11.1 billion in

2018. The New Zealand tech sector employs more

than 25,000 people locally and 50,000 globally, and

offers a significantly higher pay than the national

average.

Christchurch woman Jessica Costello, 20, recently

graduated from Vision College with a Level 5 NZ

Diploma in Web Development and Design and

a Level 6 NZ Diploma in Software Development.

The two-year programme covered a range of

subjects, including web design, coding languages,

programming skills and software engineering – as

well as an eight-week internship with local company

CORE Education – which led to a job offer.

Late last year Costello started as a junior web

designer with the company. “It’s a great industry

to be working in, and I can’t wait to see what the

future holds,” says Costello.

She attributes Vision College as being a huge part

of her success in gaining employment in the IT

industry. The small class sizes and supportive tutors

were both nurturing and engaging. “Our tutors built

a great rapport and connection with the students,

so they knew where we were at to ensure we were

all keeping up with the programme,” says Costello.

There was also a focus on practical learning and

writing code. “We were on the computers from the

first day, learning by doing, and really drilling down

into specialty areas,” says Costello. “I could see my

skillset progressing and developing every day.”

As well as learning technical skills, she had the

opportunity to do professional practice papers to

build up “soft skills” too – something employers are

increasingly looking for, notes Taylor.

“They’re wanting peopale that are technical skilled

but who can also be innovative, creative and solve

problems and can communicate well,” says Taylor.

He says that industry internships are a key part

of the course programme, giving students the

opportunity to apply their learnings to real world

situations – and these opportunities often lead to

employment.

Aaron Kitto, national IT manager at CORE

Education, and Costello’s new boss, agrees that the

industry is desperate for more skilled IT graduates,

particularly in areas such as software development.

He encourages students to find out more about

IT courses, as it is a career that offers flexibility and

growth.

“For me, IT is a skill that can exist in any industry like

human resources or marketing,” says Kitto. “The skills

of an IT person can be mobile between almost every

type of organisation from education to agriculture

to tourism. This means that as the world moves

towards less “job for life” roles and more “do what is

needed” roles, IT people are perfectly placed to take

advantage of this. We have contractors who set up

company servers in Taiwan while writing code for a

Canadian firm, all from a beach in Bali.”

For more information on getting started in IT, see

visioncollege.ac.nz or phone 0800 834 834. The

programme allows for flexible study and University

Entrance (UE) is not required to begin studying.

Upcoming intakes are scheduled to start

March 4, 2019.

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 & the lowest scores on

tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration & brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains & 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

& declining cognitive function. B12 is

essential for energy production, cell

health, regulation of mood & sleep cycles,

nerve health & repair, & prevention of

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular

risk factor that is known to cause damage

& 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 & other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth &

thru bypassing the digestive tract have

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in

the body.

Grape Seeds Shown To Have

Remarkable Health Benefits!

According to researchers grape seeds may

hold the potential to treat & prevent many

devastating disorders. The seeds have been

found to contain many powerful antioxidant

such as resveratrol, catechins, epicatechins,

proanthocyanadins & anthocyanins as well as

other nutrients that have been shown to support

the natural healing process & even slow the

aging process.

Grape Seed Extract (GSE) has been shown to

reduce inflammation & pain, increase cellular

energy, protect protein structures & increase

collagen production. The powerful antioxidants

in GSE can tone & strengthen the blood vessels,

improve blood flow making it valuable for

circulatory disorders of all kinds, including

varicose veins, haemorrhoids, hardening of the

arteries & impaired blood flow to the brain. It

is excellent for most skin conditions because

of the increase of blood flow to the skin tissue

thru allowing more nutrients to the tissue cells

& better waste removal from the cells. As well as

this it supports collagen production. For these

reasons many people report the skin looks more

healthy, smoother & with better elasticity when

using GSE.

GSE offers a natural alternative for many

people with hypertension (High Blood

Pressure). Higher than normal blood pressure

puts more stress on organs & can lead to

atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) &

therefore increased risk of heart disease (The

heart has to work harder to supply blood

around the body & may become enlarged &

eventually fail) & strokes.

Recent analysis of 16 randomized studies on

people with elevated blood pressure found GSE

to significantly lower both systolic & diastolic

blood pressure but had no effect on people with

normal blood pressure. Animal studies have

shown GSE to improve heart function, reduce

damage caused by heart attacks & prevent the

formation of foam cells that play a role in the

formation of arterial plaque.

A growing number of studies show that GSE

has powerful anticancer properties in both the

prevention & treatment of many types of cancer.

Studies show arthritis of every type may be

greatly improved by GSE. GSE also helps protect

the body against damage caused by diabetes

while helping balance blood sugar levels.

Another area GSE is proving highly beneficial

is the brain. It has been shown to protect

brain cells while stimulating the formation of

healthy new brain cells. It may prove vital in the

treatment of brain disorders like Alzheimer’s &

Parkinson’s disease.

There are numerous studies on GSE that

show it can help support our good health &

prevent many degenerative diseases.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint 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 of their joints.

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. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

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

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

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 joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint 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.

HIP PAIN

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

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.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

conceals the contemporary masterpiece inside,

fulfilling all the needs of family living.

the home are enhanced by the detailed

finishing and contrast perfectly with the

vibrant green shades displayed in the easy

the village, or you can stretch the legs further

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr ement 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 suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

Winder was part of the Pure

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

has b en given the gr en ligh to

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe quarries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.
