Freedom

camping

issues

back in

Burnside

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FREEDOM camping problems

have flared up again in Burnside.

Residents have been contacting

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board chairman Sam

MacDonald over the increased

number of campers using

Burnside Park.

Concerns have been raised

self-contained vehicles are staying

at the park for more than two

days in a row – going against the

city council’s rules.

Under the city council’s

Freedom Camping Bylaw, selfcontained

vehicles can stay for

up to two nights within a 30 day

period.

But a city council spokeswoman

said no breaches of the bylaw have

been confirmed.

It was made aware of the issue

on February 26 and compliance

officers have been on site to

respond to the complaints.

Mr MacDonald said if freedom

campers are staying at the park,

they need to be operating within

the rules that exist.

THOUSANDS OF people will be

pounding the pavements and roads at the

annual City2Surf on Sunday.

It’s Christchurch’s iconic event, which

The Star has put on for decades.

This year it will be the 45th time the event has been held. It

used to go from the Square out to QE II, but a certain event on

February 22, 2011, changed all of that.

It now goes from Centennial Park and Hansen Park to

Ferrymead.

Each year there is a buzz as thousands gather in the parks

for the challenge that lies ahead – whether it be going as fast

as you can, or simply completing the journey for personal

satisfaction.

On page 11 today, we talk to some of the people taking part.

Campbell, MacDonald clash

over board meeting cancellation

Online post

‘seriously

appalling’

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HIGH-PROFILE community

board members Sam MacDonald

and Aaron Campbell are at

loggerheads again.

This time it is over Mr

MacDonald, who is the

chairman, cancelling the

fortnightly Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

meeting, which was scheduled

for yesterday, due to a lack of

items on the agenda.

In a post online, Mr Campbell

said: “Obviously that is not good,

elected members are well-paid

and residents deserve engaged

politicians.”

Mr MacDonald hit back,

telling Nor’West News it was

“seriously appalling” for him

to effectively say the board is

wasting ratepayers’ money.

“We have never seen the need

to meet for the sake of meeting,

Aaron Campbell

we are outcomes focused . . . for

him to say something like that

is just bizarre,” Mr MacDonald

said.

The board had planned to

discuss removing a cycle lane

and path outside Burnside

High and Christ The King

schools. However, city council

staff needed to collect more

information before presenting a

report.

But the board was scheduled

to meet yesterday to discuss its

Sam MacDonald

submission on the Annual Plan.

It is not the first time there

has been tension between Mr

Campbell and Mr MacDonald.

Mr Campbell previously asked

for a liquor ban at Elmwood

Park, which Mr MacDonald

said was not supported by the

board.

A notice of motion to remove

Mr Campbell as deputy

chairman of the board last year

was accepted by city council chief

executive Karleen Edwards. Mr

Campbell lost the position after

speaking out of turn about water

issues at a city council meeting.

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

members are paid $22,841

annually, and the chairman is

paid $45,681.

“That is big bucks so you have

a right to know what we are

doing,” Mr Campbell said.

Mr MacDonald said there

was no need for yesterday’s

fortnightly meeting.

“The public detests the

sentiment of more and more

council meetings at their cost,

the majority of our board are

professionals who don’t feel the

need to sit around talking in

circles for hours on end.”

However, Mr Campbell said

the board meeting would have

given members an opportunity

to receive correspondence, hear

deputations and bring up issues

in their area.

Mr MacDonald revealed last

month he will be running for a

seat on the city council in the

Waimairi Ward.

Mr Campbell is still

considering whether he will run

for city council.

Mariu bowls former

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

A PATIENT WITH A BIG HEART

Meet “Lucy”, a courageous 3 year old Staffy

cross who in the past 6 weeks has overcome

many hurdles, but still has a wee way to go.

I first met Lucy at the end of January as a

second opinion. She had been intermittently

unwell for the past month with swallowing

difficulties, coughing, lethargy , pain and

intermittent extremely high temperatures. A

weird clinical picture. She had short courses

of antibiotics and anti inflamatories but still

appeared painful and lethargic and was

deteriorating.

When I first met Lucy, her painfulness struck

me first. I see many uncomfortable patients,

but Lucy was different. She never verbalized

her pain but she was

incredibly tucked up in

the abdomen, walking

slowly and stilted and her

face wore all the pain. She

was brave and lovely to

treat but it was horrible

for me to see her in that

much pain. She was

admitted for a full blood

work up, sufficient pain

medications, intravenous

fluids and xrays..

We got no conclusive

results back from Day 1.

On paper she appeared

healthy but she clearly

wasn’t. Next step was an

ultrasound with Catherine.

Large abdominal lymph nodes measuring up

to 7 cm long were seen dotted throughout.

Catherine wasn’t sure if we may have a

migrating foreign body so it was decided to

open Lucy up. Again no conclusive results

after her exploratory. Kirsty biopsied her

enlarged lymph nodes as a cancerous process

was a possibility. Again we drew blanks as the

lymph node pathology was normal.

Despite our best diagnostic efforts to

find a cause for her unexplained pain and

lethargy, we just had no answers. We were

unsuccessfully managing her pain despite

a myriad of treatment medications. It was

worrying and what was worse was that Lucy

was getting weaker in her hindquarters,

struggling to walk or support her weight.

A contrast CT scan At Pacific Radiology

under sedation was the next diagnostic

tool employed. I was very worried about

spinal cord compression or other diseases

affecting the disc spaces and vertebral bodies.

Interesting findings were seen. Lucy had

large granulomatous masses underneath

a few lumbar vertebrae no doubt causing

compression on her spinal cord, a contributor

to her paralysis. Her vertebral bodies also

looked diseased. Many huge intra-abdominal

lymph nodes were also seen. The scanner

likened it to findings you would see with

Tuberculosis in a person. We also weren’t

expecting her to develop a large pus filled

abscess over her lumbar back that required

surgical draining.

Interestingly Lucy had killed 2 possums a few

months back but after specialized diagnostic

testing for TB on

tissue samples

taken we came up

with blanks. Also

TB hasn’t yet been

isolated in possums

in the Canterbury

area although we

did have her on

TB medication for

several weeks.

As you can see this

case is still providing

challenges for us.

Lucy has since

had more surgery,

ultrasounds, blood

testing and referral

consultations with specialists to try to get a

handle on what caused her pain, CT findings

and paralysis. Our best guess is an inhaled,

migratory Foreign body like a grass seed, that

traveled to beneath her spine somehow. No

other disease process has been found.

The UP side to this story is how Lucy

is handling her immobility and all the

medications she has to consume 2-3 times

daily. She is a terrific dog that has just adapted

to life without walking. She has a ravenous

appetite, appears pain free and happier now

and even wags her tail and twitches and

withdraws her hindlegs. Her improvement is

slow but I guess any disease involving spinal

cord injury takes time to heal. She hasn’t given

up and her dedicated owner hasn’t given up

hope either. Margaret has changed her whole

life this past month to give Lucy the chance to

recover – working from home, learning how

to drain a urinary catheter, managing her care

in terms of massage, reiki, getting her into a

wheelchair – not an easy task when you are

dealing with a 30 kg dog! Amazingly Margaret

has managed all her care from home, which

is better than caged hospital care for Lucy at

this stage.

We all love Lucy at the clinic. We often do

our clinical exams and treatments from the

boot of Margarets car to avoid tiring Lucy.

Our nurses have been patient and gentle to

Lucy and Lucy responds positively to us. We

are ALL hoping and praying for a full recovery.

Follow us on FB to see Lucy’s progress.

Black Cap for 99

Emma’s big break in New York

LAST YEAR’S Rangi Ruru head

girl is about to follow in the

footsteps of Hollywood icons.

Emma Cushing has secured a

place at New York University’s

famous Tisch School of the

Arts – a dream come true for the

18-year-old.

“The American thing has

always been a bit of a dream

and the dream bit by bit

became reality last year; from

the application process, to the

audition to the email confirming

I had a place at NYU’s Tisch

School of the Arts,” she said

yesterday.

Cushing will be in great

former company – the school

was a stepping stone for super

stars Anne Hathaway, Martin

Scorsese, Spike Lee and Whoopi

Goldberg to name a few.

It’s all still very surreal for

Cushing.

“I’ve lived in Christchurch all

my life. In fact, at the year 13

Rangi leavers dinner last year, I

was voted as most likely to be the

last person to leave home,” she

laughs.

“Whether it’s acting or

something else on the businessside

of the industry, I have always

wanted to be in the world of

entertainment.” She has been

learning speech and drama since

year 3. “I really want to make a

difference like Emma Watson,

who I admire greatly. She uses

her position in the world to

speak up and to try and change

things. Take what you love and

use it to make change – that’s

really important to me.”

Cushing had to perform two

contrasting monologues of 90sec

each for her Tisch audition.

PATH TO

FAME: Emma

Cushing

has been

accepted into

the prestigious

New York

University

Tisch School

of the Arts.

She chose a piece from Girls

Like That by Evan Placey,

which explores the pressures on

young people today in the wake

of advancing technology, and 2B

or nt 2B by Sarah Delahunty,

which is a modern adaptation

of tragic characters from classic

literature portrayed as teenagers.

After telling her family she had

been accepted, the next person

she contacted was Rangi

principal Sandra Hastie.

“Dr Hastie was my

mentor at school last

year. I was so lucky to

meet with her every week

and discuss all sorts of

things. We often spoke

of my plans for 2019 and

aspirations to apply to

NYU Tisch,” Cushing

said.

“She would regularly

look me straight in the

eye and say ‘go for it kid’.

She was as nervous as I. I was so

grateful for the time and effort

my teachers put in to help me

during the application process.

Rangi Ruru has played such an

important role in where I find

myself now.”

Cushing leaves to start her

studies in New York in late

August. She credits Crimson

Education career pathway

consultant, Kristen Fox, for

helping her get to New York.

“Kristen was a big part of how

I got here. She had access to all

the information I needed for the

application process, the audition,

and even now she’s there if I need

her.”

Rangi provides access for

its students looking at career

pathways to Crimson Education.

SERVED: Jorja Shearman, 10, was served the 30 millionth KickStart Breakfast by champion shot

putter Tom Walsh.

Breakfast from a champion

• By Matt Slaughter

TOM WALSH may not have

been the champion shot putter

he is today if he hadn’t eaten

breakfast.

Shirley Primary School pupils

were delighted last week when

Walsh served them up Weet-Bix

as part of the KickStart Breakfast

programme, which has served 30

million breakfasts over the last

10 years to Kiwi kids.

Jorja Shearman, 10, was the

lucky pupil to revive the 30 millionth.

The school has been part of the

programme since 2015 and was

the only school to have Walsh

make a special visit.

Deputy principal Jo Meyrick

said the pupils didn’t know how

to react when Walsh greeted

them at the breakfast counter.

“They were super excited. I

think they didn’t really know

what to expect.”

Mrs Meyrick said Walsh joined

pupils at the breakfast table and

talked about what he ate for

breakfast. She said the pupils

were left with full tummies and a

spark of inspiration.

“I actually think the kids

MONITORING: The city council has been monitoring freedom

campers at Burnside Park after complaints from residents.

Freedom campers

at Burnside Park

•From page 1

“I don’t want to see that [Burnside

Park] become a freedom

camping hub in the city. That

would not be acceptable,” he said.

Mr MacDonald said the number

of freedom campers

using the park has only

become noticeable in the

past couple of weeks.

The city council has

had three complaints in

the last year relating to

freedom camping issues

at the site.

But Burnside Rugby

Football Club rugby

manager Brent Frew said

the park had no more of an

issue with freedom camping than

anywhere else.

He said the main problem is the

campers will leave their rubbish

in bags next to the rugby club’s

locked tip because there are no

rubbish bins at the park.

“I would think six nights a

week there is freedom campers . .

. a year ago you wouldn’t have got

anybody,” Mr Frew said.

Sam

MacDonald

About a year ago, it was reported

freedom campers were

upsetting residents by parking

outside the Waimairi Cemetery

on Grahams Rd. Mr MacDonald

said the city council’s enforcement

team continually

monitored the issue and

the problem went away.

He did not think the

freedom campers had

shifted from Grahams Rd

to Burnside Park.

But both Mr Frew

and Mr MacDonald

suspected the increase

in freedom campers was

due to the park being

close to the Christchurch

International Airport and rental

car companies.

In 2016, the city council

changed its Freedom Camping

Bylaw to ban campers without

toilets from council-owned land.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think freedom camping is

an issue at Burnside Park?

CBHS on path to winning Maadi

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High

School’s coxed eight are in the

hunt to add their name to the

Maadi Cup for the first time in

history after storming to victory

at the South Island secondary

school championships.

The CBHS under-18 coxed

eight won their final major

hit out on Lake Karapiro in

commanding fashion ahead of

the Maadi regatta, which starts

on Monday.

A tail wind helped them

finish in a blistering time of

5min 51.77sec, more than 14sec

ahead of defending Maadi Cup

champions Christ’s College in

second.

In terms of national sporting

achievements, there’s not much

CBHS hasn’t done.

However, they are yet to win

the Maadi Cup.

“We’re all aware of that. They

got close in 1999 . . . we’re lucky

this year that we have a big

group of year 13s. We haven’t

necessarily said this is our target,

but if they go fast in something

then we’ll make it a target,” said

CBHS rowing coach Logan Keys.

Now in his eighth year with

the programme, Keys said the

group of 61 rowers is the largest

the school has had in his time.

“They got a little bit of a taste

of it last year and they’ve all

hung around,” said Keys.

“We started with two eights.

We had 16 guys going for it

and have spent all year trying

to whittle it down. We haven’t

quite got there yet, but it’s getting

pretty close . . . in previous years,

we might only have had eight

guys.”

The eight of Scott Shackleton,

Tom Fraser, Cameron Long,

Ethan Alderlieste, Cameron

Henderson, Angus Templeton,

James Glover, Ben Brown and

Timothy Heritage (cox) won

one of eight gold medals for

CBHS – making them the most

successful boys’ school at the

South Island regatta.

CBHS also won the boys

under-18 coxed four which will

have them in contention for the

Springbok Shield – contested

SPORT

at the Maadi regatta – they

narrowly missed out on last

year.

Rangi Ruru was the top girls’

school with four gold, six silver

and three bronze medals.

“The crews can be pleased

with their achievements this

weekend and should pat

themselves on the back for their

efforts. The coaches, parents

and management are in awe of

them,” said Rangi Ruru rowing

manager Ella Vink.

Meanwhile, St Margaret’s will

go into the Maadi regatta as the

South Island favourites in the

Jubilee Cup after winning the

girls under-18 coxed eight at the

weekend.

Who’s taking part in the

It’s the 45th anniversary

of the Star Media

City2Surf. Reporter

Anan Zaki spoke to

some of the participants

aiming to be at the start

line on Sunday

Aaron Cooper, 43

Mr Cooper is set to take part

in his first City2Surf and will do

the 14km race.

“I just want to keep fit and test

the legs on running the distance.”

Mr Cooper plans to run a

half marathon

(21km) – which

is on his bucket

list – and

believes this is a

step towards the

goal.

“It’s the

Aaron Cooper

first time I’m

running 14km.

I’m a surfer,

I’m not really a runner. I used

to play rugby until I was 21 . .

. and, yeah, it [running] is just

something I’ve always wanted to

do,” he said.

Mr Cooper’s wife often takes

part in multi-sport events but

she will greet him at the finish

line as the couple have two young

children.

“When she gets fit, we’ll

definitely be doing other races as

a team,” he said.

David Clark,

29

Taking part in

the 14km event,

Mr Clark is

looking for a new

challenge. It will

be his second

David Clark time entering the

City2Surf.

“It’s just a wee challenge to just

test myself for a bit of fitness,” he

said.

“[The first time] was good. I

want to try something further, I

did the 6km [last year] and want

to try the 14km.”

He has been training hard

for the event and says he will be

ready for the race on March 24.

NEWBIE: Hailey McConchie will be running in her first

City2Surf this year.

“Currently I’m doing it myself

but we’ll see if my partner does it.

That will be just a wait and see.”

Hailey McConchie, 25

The mother of two used to be

focus on body building, but since

having her second child last year,

she’s switched to running.

It will be her first City2Surf.

“I’ve never been a runner.

People who tend to lift weight do

not like cardio whatsoever,” Mrs

McConchie said.

To lose weight after pregnancy,

she took up running. “I’ve lost a

lot of my baby weight . . . I started

an eight-week challenge and lost

about 6kg,” she said.

Getting into running was

difficult.

“At first it felt like a long time

to get running, even that first

kilometre. It felt like ages,” Mrs

McConchie said.

She will be taking part in the

6km event. “Every time I see a

race I just enrol myself and just

build myself in it.”

Mrs McConchie has heard

great things about the City2Surf

but couldn’t take part in it last

year as she had just given birth to

her second child a month before

the event. “I’d like to keep my

running up [this year]. It’s not

something I really enjoy but once

I find my rhythm 2-3km in, that’s

when I can see why some people

are addicted to running,” she

said.

Kelly Clements, 46

Mrs Clements

doesn’t live

far from the

start line near

Centennial Park.

She says the

City2Surf is a

good excuse to

Kelly

Clements

not pay for a gym

membership.

“It’s just my

one thing that makes me head

out and train each year. It’s

not too far being only 14km.

Rather than paying for a gym

membership, I sign up and it

makes me run,” Mrs Clements

said.

This will be her fourth

consecutive City2Surf. “A friend

got me into running and it was

that whole give it a go, it’s a

reasonably flat course and lots of

fun,” she said.

Unfortunately her friend

Learn

has rolled her ankle and Mrs

Clements will be running the

event solo for the first time.

“I’ll be on my own but that

doesn’t matter because it’s so well

set up you don’t really care, you

just run.

“I haven’t stopped [training]

all year but I probably stepped

up distances in the last six weeks.

There might have been a few 5km

runs but I stepped it up to a few

10km.”

Being a personal trainer,

Ms Lansing has many friends

and clients taking part in the

City2Surf.

“I’m a runner

in general, I

Mr Bradshaw was

convinced by his partner

Kristyn Ferry to take part in

the 14km event.

“She did it last year and

enjoyed it and this year she’s

going to do it again. She said

she’d like me to do it with her

“She’s doing it more for a

Baby gear to hire or buy

The arrival of a new baby in the family is exciting for

everyone, and it’s a time when special things are

needed to keep baby safe, comfortable and happy.

Offering a wide selection of baby gear for hire and sale, Baby on

the Move in Wairakei Road is the specialty store where parents and

grandparents will find quality products for baby, right from birth,

including infant capsules for babies up to six months old, car seats,

portacots, regular cots, buggies and toys.

The child restraints that are hired are well-known brands and

are well-maintained, with every customer receiving personalised

service at Baby on the Move.

As qualified child restraint technicians, business owner Jane and

her two staff members will advise on hiring the correct capsule or

car seat for the type of car and the customer’s lifestyle, explain how

to use it, and fit it into the vehicle.

Correct installation of the car seat is vital, while having enough

leg-room for the front-seat passenger is also important, Jane says.

“Our short-term car-seat hire is popular with grandparents, who

have family visiting,” she says, “and they often pick up their hired

seat on their way to the airport. We have many repeat customers

who use this service and we get good feedback on it.

“Installation of carseats hired or purchased from Baby On The

Move is always free,” Jane adds.

Baby on the Move was established in New Zealand more than 20

years ago, and the Wairakei Road store is one of two in Christchurch.

It is located at 515 Wairakei Road, close to Roydvale Avenue.

A bakery for all occasions

where shopping and parking is easy

ADVERTORIAL

From humble beginnings in 1986, the awardwinning

family business Kidds Cakes & Bakery has

grown to become one of the city’s most well-known

outlets for freshly baked treats and decorated cakes.

Located on the Cranford Street-Innes Road corner

since 1987, they moved into their spacious, new

two-storey building five years ago, after their previous

premises were damaged in the earthquakes.

Roadworks around the intersection over the last

two years have presented further challenges for the

business, but as owner Martin Meehan explains, “Our

34 off-street car parks have saved the day.”

These have meant that customers have been

able to easily park and purchase the delicious pies,

savouries, cakes and cookies – all freshly baked on

the premises seven days a week.

Kidds Cakes & Bakery won the prestigious New

Zealand Bakery of the Year Award in 2010, have

won the best Hot Cross Buns in New Zealand Award

twice, as well as a number of Gold Medals over the

years in the New Zealand Pie contests.

Among their other specialties are decorated

wedding cakes, and customised special occasion

cakes, which often look too good to cut up, Martin

says.

“They are really

edible works of art.”

They also

pioneered

photo cakes in

Christchurch after

seeing them at a

bakery conference

in the United States,

and these have proved popular.

“For some customers, it means a lot to have a

photo cake for a special occasion, and for us it’s good

to be part of people’s lives,” Martin says.

“We also still make a lot of the old favourites,

like jelly sponges, cream horns, sponge drops and

Battenberg cakes. People want them, so we are

happy to make what they want.”

The on-site café is another popular feature of

Kidds Cakes & Bakery. It is open for breakfast from

7am-2pm, and lunch from 11am-2pm, with the two

qualified chefs creating a tasty selection of dishes. A

wide choice of cabinet food is also available.

The clientele includes families and many regular

customers, who have also become friends with each

other through meeting there, Martin says. They enjoy

the café’s relaxed environment, while

the outdoor courtyard and play area

for children are an added bonus.

Seating 60 people, the café is also

available for small functions.

The need for innovation in the face

of the roadworks disruption has seen

Kidds Cakes & Bakery recently signing

up to Uber Eats, and they now have a

liquor licence for the café.

“We also now wholesale our pies to

other outlets, and this has been good

for us,” Martin says, “and we offer

catering packs for office shouts.”

Martin’s son Chad is now managing

the family-run business, and they are

all looking forward to the day the roadworks are

finished, “hopefully by October”.

online ordering, visit www.kiddscakes.co.nz

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

NOR’WEST NEWS

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 or

both hips.

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. Alternatively, a

back muscle could also be the cause, as

shown in the image.

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

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

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

and wellbeing.

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 hip, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the hip 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.

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.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

More health benefits

with Advanced

Omega-3-PC Fish Oil

It is well known how important omega-3

fatty acids are to good health. It is estimated

most people don’t even get a third of the

recommended omega-3 fatty acids on

a weekly basis. Countries with a higher

amounts of omega-3 in the diet are known

to have lower cardiovascular disease and

in many cases better overall health. Recent

research has shown inflammation to be a

big part of disease and the ageing process.

Fish oil can help reduce inflammation by

providing essential fatty acids required by

the body to heal itself and maintain good

health. Fish oil supplements have become

hugely popular for this reason. Until now

most fish oil only contained omega-3 fatty

acids in triglyceride form. Fish however

naturally contain omega-3 in

triglyceride and phospholipid

form but until recently the

phospholipid form was lost due to

the manufacturing process.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-

3-PC sets new standards in

fish oil as it contains omega-3

attached to both triglycerides and

phospholipids. Studies have shown

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC to

be far better absorbed leading to

increased levels of vital omega-3

fatty acids in the organs thru giving

the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-3-PC is

produced from fresh wild deep sea cold

water fish using a new advanced and more

natural cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found

in fish. It is manufactured to high GMP

standards and is molecularly distilled to

remove any containments, toxins and

heavy metals like mercury.

Further information on this

revolutionary new fish oil and how it may

benefit you is available from the Natural

Health Advisers, at Marshall’s Health &

Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: 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 call

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

from the Natural Health Advisers at

Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy,

101 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone:

388-5757. We are always happy to help!

NOT all FISH OIl IS CreaTed eQUal!

ONLY GO OMEGA-PC retains the natural Phospholipids that have been shown to be so beneficial for Good

Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL!

Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally

contain Omega-3 in a triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process. GO OMEGA-PC is produced using a new more natural cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. Studies show GO OMEGA-PC offers superior absorption with

increased omega-3 fatty acids in organs giving the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC OFFERS:

• Superior absorption of vital Omega-3, as

shown in research

• Advanced new cold extraction better

preserves the natural nutrient profile

found in fish

• Naturally contains phospholipids to

support cellular health

• Contains vitamin D3 to support immune,

bone & cardiovascular health

• Supports cardiovascular health - Countries with

a higher Omega-3 intake have much lower rates

of heart disease

• Supports blood circulation, healthy cholesterol &

healthy blood pressure

• Supports joint health, joint mobility & repair

• Supports overall health & wellbeing

HOME & HEATING

The facts about

Home

Ventilation

Balanced Pressure

vs Positive Pressure

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

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

Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our

showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd,

Waltham, Christchurch.

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need

to be suitably ventilated, either with

opening windows or forced ventilation.

Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this

provision is to safeguard people from

illness or loss of amenity due to lack of

fresh air.” There are many benefits to forced,

or mechanical, ventilation over opening

windows, including warmth, security,

reduction of outside noises and reduction

of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in

from outside via the roof space and force

the stale air out through gaps around

windows and doors. The incoming air

from these systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm in winter or

cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is a ‘balanced

pressure’ system. It extracts air from the

house and at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air pass through

a heat exchanger, which warms incoming

air in winter and cools in summer if air

conditioning is being used. This means that

up to 80% of the energy which would be

wasted using a traditional positive pressure

system is recovered, resulting in significant

energy savings and therefore lower heating

or cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure

ventilation systems have been considerably

more expensive than traditional positive

pressure systems. However, with Smooth-

Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a

HEX390 balanced pressure system can be

installed for a similar price as a traditional

positive pressure system.

REAL ESTATE

An elevation sensation

52 Morgans Valley, Heathcote

Auction: Thursday, 21 March 2019 Unless Sold Prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number: SM0170

Considerably sized and displaying modern

finishes this impeccably styled home rises

above the rest and offers unparalleled views

from the highest position in Morgans Valley.

The sizeable 2717m 2 site and its favourable

microclimate location deliver outstanding

peace and serenity with the exceptional

outlook stretching from the hillside across to

the city and out to the Southern Alps.

Drawing on the contemporary aesthetic

of the exterior, the interior of the home is

streamlined and modern, with an exquisite

kitchen and expansive open plan living area

found at its heart.

Granite benchtops, an entertainer’s oven and

a breakfast bar ensure the kitchen is equally

practical and eye-pleasing while a second

lounge provides an alternative living area and

contributes great flexibility for families.

Tremendous gallery windows drench

the home in natural light and capture the

captivating vista, and when the sun is shining,

you can soak up this scene and the sunshine

from the balcony or private outdoor setting.

Arranged over three floors and hosting a

total of four bedrooms and two bathrooms, the

upper level is naturally devoted to the master

suite which features a walk-in wardrobe and

ensuite.

Also forming part of the floor plan is a

separate laundry, an internal access garage

with storage and two heat pumps which offer

comfort and convenience.

Situated in the calming environment of

Heathcote Valley by Heathcote Valley school,

it’s an easy drive from Lyttelton Port and

various coastal suburbs, and the CBD is less

than 20 minutes’ drive away. This property

also provides a large back section which is

a blank canvas for growing fruit trees or for

those garden lovers wishing to potter away.

The vendors are firmly committed to selling,

and their immaculately presented home is

destined for a change of ownership.

Current GV: $870,000.
