Adding beauty

to the banks

of the Avon River

Performing in spite of the odds

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

EVER SINCE she was a

child, there is nothing else

Laurel Gregory has wanted

to do other than perform on

stage.

But it has been a “rocky”

road for the Richmond

22-year-old, who has been

battling an auto-immune

disease for about 14 years,

which has led to her being

diagnosed with arthritis.

Yet instead of feeling

sorry for herself, she has

refused to let anything

stop her from chasing

her dream of becoming a

professional musical theatre

performer.

Gregory is currently

training in New York City

at the Broadway Dance

Center as part of a threemonth

programme.

Founded in 1984, the dance

school is known as one of the

first drop-in studios to be

established in the world and

has more than 80 teachers

and choreographers taking

classes.

As part of her training,

Gregory is attending 12

classes a week, including

ballet, bodyArt and

contemporary dance. She

said she chose to attend the

school after needing a “fresh

perspective” on dancing.

Pressure

ramps up

to start

Oram Ave

extension

• By Matt Slaughter

CALLS TO make funding for the

proposed Oram Ave extension

available sooner are being

supported.

The project is being overseen by

Development Christchurch Ltd

and is currently scheduled to be

completed in the 2018-2028.

DCL manager of communications

and engagement Cecilia

Densham said: “DCL supports

the Oram Ave project and would

certainly like to see it brought

forward.”

Coastal Ward councillor David

East and the New Brighton Business

and Landowners Association

also said the $12 million budgeted

to go towards the completion of

the project should be made available

sooner.

Cr East said given DCL’s support,

he would now seriously consider

making a formal proposal to

the city council to get the Oram

Ave extension under way.

He said DCL’s support of

the project would give him the

grounds he needed to take a

more formal approach to have the

funding brought forward.

SAME OLD, same old for road repairs in

the eastern suburbs.

Part of New Brighton Rd (page 3) is in

desperate need of an upgrade.

I lived on New Brighton Rd before, and

for about 18 months after the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

The road was severely damaged. Every time a truck or a vehicle

towing a trailer went by it felt like another quake had struck.

Sometimes it felt like the house might collapse.

So, I feel the frustration of the Coastal-Burwood Community

Board in their bid hasten repairs.

The city’s leaders have rarely – in my view anyway –

prioritised the east. New Brighton Rd is another example.

All power to the community board to make life better for

those in the east.

Two-year wait for road repairs

• By Matt Slaughter

ROAD USERS in the east will

have to wait another two years

for one of the area’s most badly

damaged roads to be repaired.

THe city council has confirmed

the repair to New Brighton Rd

between Bower Ave and the

Pages Rd roundabout will take

place in 2020-21 at a cost of

about $1.2 million.

Members of

the Coastal-

Burwood

Community

Board said this

is too long to

wait and they

Kim Money

would continue

to put pressure

on the city

council to start work now.

Deputy chairman Tim Sintes

said the community board’s

concerns about the state of the

stretch of road would continue

to be raised in its meetings until

the city council did something

about it.

“It won’t go away until it’s

fixed. The community board’s

members like myself and others

get it coming to us all the time,

so we’ll just keep bringing it up

all the time.”

Board chairwoman Kim

Money said: “We just need to

be seeing some action because

it is seriously affecting the wellbeing

of our residents. A lot of

these earthquake repairs that

we haven’t seen for the last eight

years are attached to the wellbeing

of the community.

“On a daily basis, we are

seeing these repairs that haven’t

been done and that’s really

hard, so for us to be able to move

these things forward would be

good.”

Ms Money said the stretch of

road was an “absolute disgrace.”

“THere’s plenty of potholes,

bumpy road dips and water

flooding on it . . . the pothole

people must be in there virtually

every week filling potholes.”

THe city council has also said

the project won’t include the

repair of the Cockayne Reserve

car park.

Ms Money said the car park

had been used as a dumping

ground by contractors and it was

common for shingle and metal

to be dumped there.

UNEVEN:

Road users

will have to

wait another

two years for

New Brighton

Rd between

Bower Ave and

the Pages Rd

roundabout to

be fixed.

“It really is an eyesore … it

really is just not fair for the

residents and the shops and

retailers in that area.”

Mr Sintes said the community

board had been calling for New

Brighton Rd to be repaired

since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake and another twoyear

delay would be a huge blow

for residents.

“New Brighton Rd has been

on the agenda for so long and

it’s just so disappointing to see it

taking this long.”

CONSENT FOR CAR PARK

A new car park will be

constructed at Thomson Park

on Marine Pde. Resource

consent has been approved and

the project will be completed

by June. The new car park is

part of a project to renew the

facilities in the park. A new

public toilet was installed in

December and the project will

also involve the installation

of a new basketball court and

the completion of landscaping

work. Meanwhile, a project to

repair earthquake damage in

Bexley Park will get under way

this month. The car park will

be replaced, upgrades will be

made to the track connecting

the car park and toilet, and a

damaged footbridge will be

removed.

Dead birds

not linked

to spraying

ENVIRONMENT Canterbury

has reassured Southshore

residents dead birds in the area

are not related to the spraying of

the spartina pest plant.

ECan said the birds were quite

some distance from the spraying

of the chemical Haloxyfop

and recently died, so it was very

unlikely that they were affected

in any way by spray.

ECan principal of resource

management adviser of

biosecurity Laurence Smith

said spraying was “applied to

spartina at low tide to allow the

maximum amount of time for

the chemical to take effect. It

has been mixed and applied at

the lowest concentrations to still

be effective, and only to a very

limited number of plants . . . at

these levels, the chance of birds

or other animals dying from the

chemical is extremely low.”

The controlled application

of Haloxyfop was undertaken

jointly by the city council, the

Department of Conservation

and ECan at selected sites

around the Avon/Heathcote

Estuary, McCormacks Bay and

Brooklands Reserve.

This is to follow up on initial

control works that were undertaken

at a similar time last year.

IT HAS TAKEN two bike

crashes in 2min to convince the

city council to fill potholes near

Banks Avenue School.

On February 22, two pupils

were left scraped and bruised

after hitting rough patches on

River Rd, Shirley, in separate

crashes.

Neighbouring resident Patrick

Boland found both pupils after

they had fallen off their bikes.

Mr Boland and principal Toni

Burnside then got in touch with

the city council and asked it to

fix the street.

Mr Boland said he has been

asking the city council for five

years to make the road safe, but

very little had been done.

City council road maintenance

manager Mark Pinner said a

“small number of potholes” have

now been fixed.

Mrs Burnside said injuries

were almost a daily occurrence

for pupils who walked and biked

to school along River Rd.

A parent of one of the pupils

who fell of their bike, Cathy

Allden, said although her son

Jack wasn’t seriously injured, he

was shaken by the accident.

“It could have been worse if a

car had been close . . . he literally

fell right into the middle of the

road.”

Mrs Burnside said the two

crashes were “just the tip of the

iceberg as far as children who are

hurting themselves goes.”

Banks Avenue School is due to

move to a new site in 2021.

Mr Pinner said since 2015, the

city council has serviced River

Rd and other roads in the red

zone less regularly.

Mrs Burnside said repairing

the road completely may not be

the best option because it is in

the red zone, but work needs

to be done to ensure it remains

safe.

diagnosed with rheumatoid and

psoriatic arthritis.

Gregory said both conditions

are caused by the auto-immune

disease, psoriasis, which causes a

rapid build-up of skin cells.

Before she was diagnosed, she

was told her skin condition was a

result of dermatitis. But now she

is taking an oral immune system

suppressant, methotrexate, which

has kept her condition under

control. The only time she ever

stopped dancing was when she

attempted to take a break from

her medication in 2015 to find a

more natural way to control her

condition. When she stopped

taking it her psoriasis came back

“horribly” and she had to spend

three months away from dance.

“This time (away from dance)

allowed me to realise how much

I actually enjoyed dancing rather

than just doing it,” she said.

Gregory said she is grateful the

medication gives her the ability

to do what she wants with her life.

projects like the New Brighton

“If they’re starting to advance

some projects that are going to

see the business core move ahead

. . . the two have got to be linked

in some fashion.”

New Brighton Business

and Landowners Association

charwoman Rebecca Tavete said

it would continue to put pressure

on the city council to start work

on the extension and will discuss

how to do this at its meeting on

Thursday next week.

“We’re at a point now where

we’ve done all the consultation

However, too many people are

decision-making process in the

area.

To address this, community

members are planning to start a

campaign to educate residents in

New Brighton and its surrounding

suburbs on all aspects of

October’s local body elections.

Bin Inn New Brighton owner

Nikki Griffin is helping to organise

the campaign and said

it will aim to provide residents

information about who will be

running, their policies and how

they could affect New Brighton.

Mrs Griffin hopes this will also

help educate people who are not

aware of the difference between

the city council and Environment

the organisations play.

Given funding for the project

was available, Mr Lonsdale said

it had taken the city council too

long to provide funding for it.

He said the city council had

been working on the master plan

since 2012.

“We’re now in 2019 and nothing

really in that particular commercial

area has been done to

actually activate capital reinvestment.”

Mr Lonsdale said the project

has the potential to bring huge

investment to New Brighton, but

delaying it any longer may put

investors off.

“The Oram Ave extension provides

lots of opportunities for not

only getting a better connection

to the foreshore along Marine Pde

. . . it provides a really great opportunity

for businesses to locate

in there, especially hospitality

or interest groups who, by virtue

of being more organised or being

more vocal, have had a huge say

in shaping the blueprint for the

for example. But, we’re still

having residents’ associations or

other groups, which are speaking

on behalf of their community . . .

that have not engaged at all with

their local residents.”

Mrs Griffin said the amount

of on-going work and work still

to do in New Brighton meant it is

important residents are given the

knowledge they need to make

informed decisions that are best

for the area.

Mr Boland said discussions are

under way on the best ways to

provide election information to

residents.

He said the Peoples Republic

of New Brighton Facebook group

would be used, but he wants the

campaign to also reach residents

who are not on social media.

things, I think we’ll get there.”

It was also important the city

council started work on the

extension this year, so it did not

clash with other big projects in

New Brighton, Mr Lonsdale said.

“The hot pools are about to

go in . . . those works are going

to take just over a year. We’ve

got between now and then to do

other work so we’re not interfering

with those projects.”

Mrs Tavete said the Oram Ave

extension would also improve

access to new developments like

the hot pools once they were

finished.

“If we have all these other

initiatives happening . . . we’re

going to need some better traffic

flow. So, the Oram Ave extension

is quite critical for those other

initiatives to be successful.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Business leader gives back to community

• By Matt Slaughter

REBECCA TAVETE was faced

with a decision two years ago.

She could either continue

running her co-working space

from its premises in the central

city, or take a risk and start a

new space in New Brighton.

The 44-year-old Aranui resident

chose New Brighton and

hasn’t looked back.

Mrs Tavete is the founder of

the ARGO Beach Co-Working

space on Marine Pde and the

chairwoman of the New Brighton

Business and Landowners

Association.

Mrs Tavete filled a number

of managerial roles all over

Christchurch and even worked

for 10 years in Portugal before

taking her work to New

Brighton.

In spite of loving the coastal

lifestyle in Portugal and bringing

her two children Diego, 21,

and Porzia, 17, up there, she said

“there’s no place like home.”

“We have everything there

is to offer I think here in New

Zealand and especially on a

coastal frontage like here in New

Brighton and it really took me to

be living overseas to really appreciate

what I had at my doorstep.”

She said New Brighton had just

as much to offer and had been

LOYAL: Rebecca Tavete started the ARGO Co-working space in New Brighton to give back to

the community that she and her family love so much.

a hub for her since first moving

out to the east as a 13-year-old.

She said her children were

“very staunch patriotic eastsiders”

and “they wouldn’t give

up living here for everything”

and her parents belonged to the

New Brighton Bowling Club.

Starting ARGO in New Brighton

“made total sense” and had

been her way of bringing some

life back into the area that her

and her family loved so much.

“I just started wandering

around Brighton and I came

down to Marine Pde and I

looked up and you could see that

this top floor was empty and it

had no life.”

“Taking the time to wander

around and just take it in, it just

felt really good.”

Argo had since become a

place where businesses, workers

and students from throughout

Christchurch came to experience

working by the seaside, she said.

“It’s creating a nice synergy of

work and community and bringing

a really nice sense of that

work-life balance.”

Mrs Tavete said her goal was

its clients would see New Brighton’s

potential, spend money in

the area and New Brighton’s appeal

would spread as a result.

She said she had always seen

New Brighton’s potential and

through her roles at ARGO and

the New Brighton Business and

Landowners Association she

wanted to give people the opportunity

to see this potential for

themselves.

“You’ve got the beautiful ocean

right in front of you, you’ve got

these amazing palm trees that

line the parade here . . . we’ve got

amazing people that are working

here.”

“I guess we get into automatic

mode as human beings when

we’re in business and just think

the CBD is where we need to be,

but it’s absolutely not.”

got together to install a 25m log

round walking path along the

side of the river and a viewing

platform, which extends around

a large tree.

Each of the 22 logs will contain

one word of a poem by Teoti

Jardine.

The poem would be about

“kaitiakitanga,” which Jardine

said translated to “taking care

of.”

“It is about connecting people

to the place as well as the

memories of the place,” Jardine

said.”

The words will be inscribed on

the log rounds next week.

Ms Ash said Jardine had been

very involved in the Richmond

area after the earthquakes

as kaumatua of the Avon-

Ōtākaro Network.

She said he also blessed the

site before the project to beautify

the Avon River edge began in

September last year.

Richmond Community

Garden co-founder Cathy Allden

said projects like this mean a lot

to the community.

“It is important for Richmond

because so many people enjoy

that walk that goes along the

river loop.”

“If we can improve this

section of the river where

everyone utilises it, and make it

a destination, it will be great for

Richmond, it will be great for the

residents and it will be great for

people’s mental health who are

using that specific space.”

LINWOOD NORTH School has

been renamed Whītau School.

The school held a ceremony to

celebrate the renaming on Friday.

A traditional whaka noa to

welcome the guests was followed

by the gifting of the new name by

Ngai Tahu representative Lynne

Ti Aika.

A Principal’s Gold Award was

also handed out to a pupil from

each of the school’s 11 classes

during the ceremony.

The awards went to pupils who

showcased the school’s values.

Whītau School deputy

principal Amy Collins said the

ceremony was hugely significant

for the school and a great

occasion.

“It was wonderful to see all

students, staff, whānau and our

local and wider community

together in our school hall

celebrating this special occasion.”

Ava Henderson was crowned

champion of the under-16 girls

She came into the round with

and finishing as the runner-up

in the opening round at Mt

marching up the North Island’s

in one big day with solid 1m

waves and light cross-onshore

wind at the south end of Piha.

Ava advanced to the final with

a score of 8.9 in her heat, which

was good enough for second.

In her final ride she took things

to another level, scoring a

New seats

installed at

Linfield Park

• By Gordon Findlater

THE GRASS embankment at

Linfield Park is sporting a new

look ahead of the rugby season.

It is now home to 100 seats from

Lancaster Park which is currently

being demolished.

The seats have been constructed

near the halfway line underneath

the scoreboard on the main

ground at Linfield, opposite the

rugby clubrooms.

“As long as you don’t get that

easterly it’ll be a damn good spot

to watch the footy,” said Linwood

Rugby Club manager Aaron

Flynn.

The seats were purchased more

than 12 months ago by Flynn.

However, the placing of the seats

was put on the back burner until

this summer.

The installation of the seats

was carried out by former

Linwood player Shaun Lyons

and John Norton from Taurus

Construction.

“They had to get some brackets

made up and have concreted them

in – they did it really well,” said

Flynn.

The seats will be in action this

weekend when Linwood’s premier

side play Methven for the Tane

Norton Cup. Linwood will host

Sydenham in their first match of

the premier metro competition on

March 30.

New Brighton gears up

for surf-themed festival

The New Brighton community and its

surfers are keenly anticipating the annual

Duke Festival of Surfing taking place in

New Brighton from March 11-17.

The event was instigated in 2016 to

honour Hawaain surfing legend Duke

Kahanamoku, who had arrived in New

Zealand in 1915 and went surfing at

New Brighton. A replica of his surfboard

was placed on the foreshore by the

Pier & Foreshore Society in 2015 to

commemorate that, with the annual

Duke Festival being launched the

following year.

Society member and event co-founder

Esther Perriam is playing a key role in

organising the 2019 Ray White New

Brighton Duke Festival of Surfing,

which aims to not only raise the profile

of surfing in New Brighton, but also to

lift community spirits and participation

in the eastern suburbs, benefit local

businesses from visitors coming for the

event and raise funds for indoor facilities

at the new hot salt water pool being

developed in New Brighton.

The festival is being launched on March

11 with a function for invited guests,

then on March 14 an art exhibtion,

titled Stoked 2019 – The Art of Surfing

and featuring works by artists and

photographers from Christchurch

and elsewhere, is being held at the

Level 1 Bar.

Several other events throughout the

week will add to the fun and excitement

of the festival. These include free

surfing lessons for 100 primary school

students from four local schools, an art

competition for local school children,

with the theme ‘My perfect Brighton

day’, and a free open air movie night on

Friday, March 15, with Finding Nemo

screening at 6pm and The Endless

Summer at 8pm.

Surf competitions will of course be be

a key feature of the festival, with short

board events for under 12s and under

20s and age group and open long board

events for men and women. These will

be held from March 15-17.

Competitors in the short board

events, which are sanctioned by

Surfing New Zealand and SISA, can

gain calendar points and potential

selection for the New Zealand surfing

team.

Freshly cooked takeaways

to meet customer demand

For almost a quarter of a century,

Gourmet Seafoods QE2 in Travis Road,

North New Brighton has been providing

delicious, freshly cooked takeaways for

local residents.

Over that time, the range of items has

grown and developed to satisfy changing

customer tastes, says owner Peter, who runs

the business with his wife Helen, and today

they serve much more than the basics they

started with.

In addition to the standard fish and chips,

Gourmet Seafoods offers a selection of

specialty fish, including gurnard, tarakihi,

sole and blue cod, which can be crumbed

or battered. The seafood selection includes

fresh and cooked Bluff oysters in season,

Pacific oysters, scallops and mussels.

Entrée items include mini spring rolls

and corn nuggets, while hamburgers

are another popular choice, with a good

selection on offer.

“People like variety, so we try to give

them that,” says Peter.

He also introduced souvlakis to the

menu, filled with beef, chicken or lamb and

tzatziki sauce. Crispy chicken fillets have

been added to the souvlaki choices, and

Peter says these have proved very popular

with customers.

In fact, their crispy, crunchy batter for

fish and chicken has become a signature

item at Gourmet Seafoods, and is favoured

by many happy customers.

Their chips are hand-made and freshly

cooked every day. Always seeking to

improve their products, Peter and Helen

have changed from frozen to fresh chips, as

they have found that’s what their customers

prefer. They have also introduced glutenfree

items in response to customer demand.

To accompany the delicious hot food,

a wide selection of soft drinks is available

from the chiller.

Dedicated to the business, Peter is

carrying on a family tradition at Gourmet

Seafoods – he is the third generation of

his family to own a fish and chip shop.

His grandfather had a shop in Petone, and

his parents ran one in Wellington, while

his son Ben is a chef and also works parttime

at Gourmet Seafoods, along with staff

member John.

Gourmet Seafoods is located in the

Travis Road shopping centre at 251 Travis

Rd. They are open seven days a week, so

try them next time you fancy some tasty

takeaways and personal service.

SENIOR LIVING

How to support

healthy weight loss

One of the big reasons we

gain weight especially as we

get older is our metabolism

slows down. Metabolism is

the process by which our

bodies convert what we eat

and drink into energy. That

energy is what allows our

body to operate. With a slower

metabolism we often feel like

eating more leading to more

weight gain and less energy.

If we try to do more exercise

with a slower metabolism

often this has little benefit

as we feel hungrier and eat

more.

GO HEALTHY NZ have recently released

an advanced new weight management

formula “CAPSI-SLIM” that contains

clinically researched ingredients. The first

new ingredient Capsimax ® has been shown

to support energy production, healthy

metabolism as well as Lipolysis the breakdown

of stored fat for energy. The formula

also contains Hydroxycitric Acid or HCA

from Garcinia cambogia. HCA has been

shown to help control the appetite so we feel

like eating less. HCA also helps manage your

stress levels preventing excessive emotional

eating. As well as this it also helps reduce the

amount of fat being stored in the body but

instead helps burn this stored fat for energy.

Green tea extract is another

nutrient in the formula that

can help activate the central

nervous system, which in

turn increases the body’s

metabolic rate, decreases fat

absorption and is a powerful

antioxidant. The next nutrient

is chromium a trace mineral

that is essential to stabilize the

body’s blood sugar levels but

is often lacking in our diet.

Chromium may help reduce

carbohydrate and sugar

cravings while increasing

lean body mass. It has been

shown to stimulate weight

loss in people with obesity. The last nutrient

iodine is lacking in the New Zealand

diet. Sufficient iodine is essential for the

production of thyroid hormones, which

regulate the metabolic energy of the body.

As well as weight gain iodine deficiency can

lead to diseases and reduced life-span.

The Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s

Health & Natural Therapy are happy to help

you with your weight loss goals. Everyone

is different and we can help you choose the

most suitable supplements for best results.

Come and see us in our new larger

store at 101 Seaview Road, New Brighton

or phone us on 388-5757. We are always

happy to help!

Modern diet leads to illness!

It’s not what you eat but what you absorb

Two Australian Naturopaths Stephen

and Shane noticed at the end of the 20th

century more and more of their patients

were experiencing gut, bowel and digestive

issues that were often leading to more

serious chronic health conditions. Being

Naturopaths they wanted to find what was

going wrong and began extensive research.

What they found was although their clients

were generally eating good food they were

not obtaining all the nutrients required for

good health from this food. Further research

showed one of the main problems was the

digestive system, “it’s not what you eat but

what you absorb.” Another well-known

problem is the soils the crops are grown in

have been depleted of many trace elements

and other nutrients that are known to be

essential for good health and therefore the

crops and food are also depleted. If we do

not obtain all the nutrients we require the

body will compensate to some degree but

a lack of too many nutrients will eventually

lead to health issues.

Based on this they

developed VITAL

GREENS, now called

VITAL ALL-IN-

ONE, a nutrient dense

powdered formula

that provides superior

absorption as well

as comprehensive

nutrition. They

decided on a

powdered formula

that could be made

as a great tasting drink because liquid

nutrition is the easiest way for the body

to absorb nutrients especially if digestive

issues are present. The formula provides

78 vital ingredients that work together in

synergy optimising each other’s absorption

and benefits. Vital Greens contains a

carefully balanced blend of nutritionally

rich greens, vegetables, fruits, minerals,

vitamins, essential fatty acids, plant and

herbal extracts, superfoods, powerful

antioxidants, probiotics, essential amino

acids, digestive enzymes, fibre plus a

uniquely alkalising pea protein. It provides

superior nutrition to a multivitamin and

just about anyone will benefit from it. It is

designed to provide all the nutrients the

body requires for good health. It is also ideal

for those in poor health, those recovering

from injury or sickness, children, athletes,

poor eaters and the elderly. It is also suitable

for people with dietary restrictions and is

gluten, wheat and dairy free. VITAL ALL-

IN-ONE will help remove toxic waste from

the body while supporting all organs. You’ll

often notice more energy and endurance,

better sleep, a more positive mood,

skin problems improving, less sickness,

improved eyesight and overall better more

optimum health.

Further information and how to obtain

the maximum benefits from VITAL ALL-

IN-ONE as well as tastings is available

HOME & HEATING

The

importance

of air quality

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

The quality of the air we breathe

affects our health and ability to

perform. We breathe in and out

approximately 20,000 litres of

air every day. It is therefore very

important to ensure good air

quality indoors through adequate

ventilation. Ventilation is the

process of air exchange to provide

the necessary air quality that meets

the needs of the occupants for clean,

fresh air. Low oxygen with high

carbon dioxide causes stuffiness

in the room and occupants can

feel drowsy. Invisible harmful

substances like a high content of

dust and tobacco smoke are harmful

and can cause various diseases. Even

bad smells can cause discomfort

or irritate the nervous system. In

summer, it’s easy to open windows

for cross ventilation, however as

winter approaches, we start to shut

up out houses to trap in the heat and

as a result, air quality can decline.

Ventilation includes both the

exchange of air to the outside as

well as circulation of air within

the building. It is one of the

most important factors for maintaining

acceptable indoor air quality in buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In

case of poor or insufficient air intake from

outside, the oxygen content decreases,

humidity and dustiness levels increase. If

exhaust ventilation is not provided or it is

not effective, polluted air, smells, humidity

and harmful substances are not removed.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required air exchange for

your building requirement.

Smooth-Air offers a wide range

of ventilation equipment, from

air vents to ducting for fans,

for both the commercial and

domestic markets. They have

an extensive range of fans and

ventilation components instore

but they can also provide

innovative solutions tailored to

differing requirements.

You can contact Smooth-Air on

0800 SMOOTH (0800 766684).

Are you struggling with the heat of

Summer or wanting to get organised for

Winter? With the ever changing weather

patterns, heat pumps have the flexibility

of being able to heat and cool which is an

advantage no other appliance can offer. This

represents great value for your investment

as you can use it all year round. The team

at Enviro Master Ltd can help keep you

cool this Summer either at home or work.

Enviro Master supplies, installs and services

all the leading brands including Panasonic,

Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means

our team can show you which system and

brand will best suit your needs.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,

now is a great time to beat the 1st of

July deadline. Inadequate heating and

ventilation can lead to mould growth and

dampness in your property, leading to

costlier maintenance and an unhealthy

living environment. Providing a fixed

heater with a higher heat output and lower

running costs, like a heat pump, will enable

your tenants to heat the area effectively.

It will also discourage them from using

unflued gas heaters which can make a

house damp and mouldy.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for

any repair or damage caused to the system

due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s

five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration

so customers have an understanding on

how it will best meet their needs.

For a free in home consultation, call

REAL ESTATE

An inspiring lifestyle retreat

869 Purau Port Levy Road, Port Levy

By negotiation – realistic vendor

5-6 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 2-3 living rooms | 4 outdoor sheds | 3 bay barn/garage (1.23 hectares approx. Title pending) | Listing Number; 8453

As they say there is no substitute for quality

and this home has that in spades.

North facing, sheltered, and nestled amongst

mature trees and gardens this superbly built

spacious light and airy home of about 337m2

enjoys lovely sea and rural views and is also

very private.

Comprising 5/6 very generous bedrooms,

3 bathrooms including an en suite, and 2/3

living areas. The kitchen and lounge are

enormous, the hallways wide and most of the

rooms open on to covered verandah giving

shelter in Winter and shade in Summer. The

main living area is octagonal in shape and is

huge with a large wood-burner and also opens

onto the verandah and lawn area giving great

indoor outdoor flow.

The farm house style kitchen features plenty

of storage, a Rayburn stove connected to a

wetback and the entire house is centrally

heated with a diesel burner supplying hot

water radiators. Fully insulated throughout

and with double glazed cedar joinery you can

see and feel no expense has been spared on

this build.

The land (1.23 hectares approx. Title pending)

is a mixture of lawns, native plantings a

paddock and 2 very well established orchards.

There are 4 outdoor sheds, a good sized 3 bay

barn/garage, lockable with concrete floor,

3 phase power and toilet and good water

supplies with a spring and deep water bore.

This property gives many options due to its

size, i.e. extended family or Airbnb etc. etc.

and only a 12 minute drive to the Diamond

Harbour ferry giving access to Lyttelton and

the city.

This is the perfect opportunity to have the

lifestyle without having too much to look

after, a chance to be semi self-sufficient and all

this only 45 minutes approx. drive from the

city.

Only approx. 10 years old, to build this now

to this quality would cost well in excess of

the asking price so this is great buying in a

beautiful location.
