Claims of agendas over

Hornby mega-facility site

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HALSWELL-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board members

have been accused of having an

“agenda” at a fiery meeting over

the Hornby

mega-facility.

City councillor Anne Galloway

questioned if some of her fellow

board members did not want the

facility built at Kyle Park.

“I can’t understand why some

of our elected members continue

to put up roadblocks. It makes

me wonder if there is some

agenda that actually is driving

this,” she said.

“We have heard over and over

again from this community that

they just want us to get on with

it.”

But she withdrew her

comments after a point of order

was called by chairman Mike

Mora and board member Debbie

Mora.

In response to Cr Galloway’s

comments, Mr Mora said it was

an “unfair allegation.”

Ms Mora said she “totally”

concurred with Cr Galloway

but some of the board members

were concerned about the safety

of the community which was

“paramount.” She said there were

“certainly no agendas.”

DECISION MADE: A long discussion at the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board

meeting has led to part of Kyle Park being reclassified and the Kyle Park management plan

going out for public consultation.

Cr Galloway told Western

News she would not comment on

who the accusation was directed

at out of respect to the board.

At the meeting, board member

Ross McFarlane raised concerns

the proposed changes to the Kyle

Park management plan did not

identify the risks of asbestos at

the park.

“By not alluding to our known

issues and known public health

risks . . . we are not allowing

adequate input on those risks by

the public,” he said.

from the editor’s desk

THERE WAS a good old scrap – a verbal

one – at the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board meeting last week (see

page 1).

There’s nothing wrong with a decent

political spat, even at community board

level. It happens in Parliament all of the time, and around the

city council table.

The community board verbals were over the Hornby megafacility

location and the vote members were to undertake in

terms over reclassification of Kyle Park.

Anne Galloway was the chief protagonist in the debate, but

she had her wings clipped by chairman Mike Mora.

Galloway questioned why roadblocks were being put up by

some board members and suggested there were agendas.

That sparked debate which ended with Galloway withdrawing

the comment after Mora intervened.

Roll on the elections.

More time for Fulton Hogan to explain

• By Anan Zaki

FULTON HOGAN will have

two more weeks to respond to

requests for more information

about their controversial quarry

plans near Templeton and

Weedons.

Environment Canterbury and

Selwyn District Council asked

Fulton Hogan in December

bordered by Curraghs, Dawsons,

Jones and Maddisons Rds.

Fulton Hogan told the two

Brownlee chairman’s bid for council

Sam MacDonald, who is

Claims of agendas over

A PLAN to protect monarch

It is also a relatively cost effective

authors say.

Anzac service cancelled

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A LONG-STANDING Anzac

Day service in Upper Riccarton

has been cancelled.

This year would have marked

100 years since the Upper Riccarton

War Memorial Library

was opened to remember the

men from the district who gave

their lives in World War 1. It was

opened on March 19, 1919.

The library’s chairwoman

Aynslie Walter said she cannot

organise the service if it has no

venue to go to.

“It is the only dawn service that

is in Riccarton so it is a very sad

day. It will now be 100 years next

month and it is the first time we

won’t have that (the service).’’

“This year I have no venue so I

just have to make that call,” she

said.

Last year Rannerdale Veterans

Village offered their venue for the

annual Anzac Day service.

But Mrs Walter said there has

been a change of management

at the village and it is quite an

exercise to close off the part of

the building for residents while

they are sleeping so there can be

an earlier service.

The city council closed the

library in October 2017 after

having an engineering assessment

which raised concerns over

structural strength.

FRUSTRATION: Upper Riccarton Library protesters (left to

right) Arthur Woods, Aynslie Walter, Mary Ibbetson, Keith

Walter and Ailsa Smith have protested against the library’s

closure in the past.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

One part of the floor had sunk

into the foundation causing

cracks in the kitchen, toilet and

walls.

“It can all be fixed and brought

up to code but it needs another

person with money to do it and

it is not us, unfortunately,” Mrs

Walter said.

The library is administered

by the Upper Riccarton War

Memorial Library trust and they

own the building on behalf of the

community.

City council community partnerships

and planning manager

Gary Watson said because the

trust cannot afford to demolish

or repair the building, the city

council is now considering the

viability of accepting the gifting

of the building.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board member

Catherine Chu said the issue is

not having enough funding.

“It is really sad because it is

not just about relocating them,

the building is actually the

memorial. So it is quite special to

them and holds a big meaning,”

she said.

Since March last year,

volunteers have been operating

out of the annex of the building

at the library.

Top school rugby player

pushes for NRL start

• By Gordon Findlater

FORMER BURNSIDE High

first XV player Mikaele Ravalawa

looks set to be the latest young

Christchurch league convert to

make his mark on the NRL.

Ravalawa scored two tries

for the St George Illawarra

Dragons in their 18-10 win over

the Newcastle Knights in a preseason

trial match.

In 2016, the Fijian

winger finished as the UC

Championship’s top try scorer

after crossing the line 14 times

for Burnside.

He was then picked up by the

Canberra Raiders and went on

to be named the club’s under-20

player of the year before moving

to the Dragons this year.

Ravalawa showed his ability

against the Knights, brushing

past five defenders to score from

a desperate play that seemed to

be going nowhere.

Australian media have

now started drawing

comparisons between the

21-year-old and Fijian NRL

legend Noa Nadruku.

He would join several other

former Christchurch school

rugby players who have switched

to league. Last year Shirley

Elia – who moved to Auckland

to begin a contract with

the Warriors when he finished

at St Thomas at the end of 2017

– scored two tries in the Warriors

40-24 win.

“I was really impressed with

how well (Elia’s) developed. He

looks like a guy that has been

part of a professional environment,”

said Canterbury Bulls

coach Andrew Auimatagi, who

is also a teacher and rugby

league coach at St Thomas.

Elia also visited his former

school leading up to the match

and spoke to between 30-40

students who are keen to follow

in his footsteps.

st thomas of canterbury college

rowing squads 2018/19

proudly sponsored by westpac halswell

WESTERN NEWS

a developing sport at st thomas of canterbury college

Rowing has been

offered at St Thomas

of Canterbury College

since 2005. Since then

it has seen many boys

from Years 9-13 train

and compete for the

sport with a Year7 and 8

development squad being introduced last year to

give the younger boys at the school a chance to

give it a go.

Currently St Thomas of Canterbury College has a

small squad of 25 boys plus passionate coaches

who are busy training and competing at regattas

up and down the country. This season the Selwyn

River remains their base after moving from Kerrs

Reach following

the Canterbury

Earthquakes.

Rowing is often

viewed as a

prestigious and

elite sport because

of the expenses

it incurs due to expensive equipment and its

travel, however St Thomas’ tries to make it as

accessible as possible to as many as it can, due

to the proven benefits this sport has for young

men. Rowing increases academic achievements,

improves mental and physical health, encourages

commitment and strong work ethic both

individually and in a team, and builds life-long

friendships.

The 2018/2019 season is coming to an end with

our final regattas: Canterbury Junior Regatta at

Lake Hood and Meridian South Island Secondary

School Champs at Lake Ruataniwha. A small

squad of 9 rowers will then represent the school

at Lake Karapiro for the National Secondary

Schools Maadi Cup Regatta, the largest school

sporting event in the Southern Hemisphere.

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.

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.

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.

THE PAPANUI-Innes

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

planned 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

Ms Jones 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 annual

plans are a l about lo bying the
