A TOILET block and changing

facility at QE II Park will not cost

ratepayers $1 million.

Instead, city council staff are investigating

ways to cut back the cost

of the planned 200 sq m building

after a request

from the hearings

panel.

Burwood

Ward city

councillor and

hearings panel

chairman Glenn

Livingstone said

he was pleased

Glenn

Livingstone

with the result.

“The whole

hearings panel

was very concerned

over the proposed $1 million

cost for the changing sheds and

toilets and was very clear over that,”

he said.

“We have reduced costs on other

facilities before such as the South

New Brighton jetty and boardwalk

and I can’t see why this cannot be

done again.”

GLENN LIVINGSTONE has had a good

win over the $1m changing facility saga at

QE II Park (see page 1).

Livingstone went public before a hearings

panel convened to determine if they would

go ahead.

I suspect his views, and the public surprise and concern it

generated, played a part in the fact the project has gone back to the

drawing board.

The hearings panel has now requested city council staff look at

how costs can be cut.

A million bucks is an extravagant cost for the changing rooms,

particularly when more money needs to be poured into other

much needed projects in the eastern suburbs – like roads.

So good on Livingstone for going public.

Venue offered for Anzac Day service

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RANNERDALE Veterans

Village has offered to hold an

Anzac Day ceremony in Upper

Riccarton due to the closure of a

historic library in the suburb.

But the long-standing Anzac

service organised by the Upper

Riccarton Memorial Library

committee still will not go

ahead.

Rannerdale Veterans Village

general manager Charmaine

Diver told Southern View it was

happy for the service to be held

at its spaces and has offered it to

the committee.

Last year the library service

was held at Rannerdale because

the library was closed in

October 2017 by the city council.

Memorial library chairwoman

Aynslie Walter previously told

Southern view it wouldn’t be

organising a separate event at

Rannerdale because it was quite

an exercise to close off part of

the building so there can be a

dawn service.

But Ms Diver said it is not

an exercise to close off part of

Rannerdale.

“We just open up the venue so

we are not here to facilitate,” she

said.

But Mrs Walter said it has now

been decided representatives

will go to the Anzac service

FRUSTRATION: Arthur Woods, Aynslie Walter, Mary Ibbetson, Keith Walter and Ailsa Smith

have previously protested against the closure Upper Riccarton Memorial Library.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

organised by Rannerdale.

“It is far too late for me to

arrange another service . . . we

have already told people we are

not doing a service this year,”

she said.

The library was closed after

an engineering assessment

raised concerns over structural

strength. Members of the Upper

Riccarton Memorial Library

Committee have previously

opposed the closure of the

library.

Opened on March 19, 1919,

the library was the first of seven

war memorials to be built in

New Zealand. This year would

have marked 100 years since the

library was opened to

remember the men from the

district who gave their lives in

World War 1.

Since March last year,

volunteers have been operating

out of the annex of the building

at the library.

NEW RELEASES

Womankind: New Zealand Women

Making a Difference

By Margie Thomson

A landmark book of profiles and portraits celebrating the successes

and diversity of New Zealand women across many spheres - politics,

arts, science, community development, business innovation and

health.

These leaders share their views on what it’s like to be a woman

in New Zealand today- the contributions they are most proud of,

challenges they have faced and still face, dreams they have and

goals for the role of New Zealand women. The range of women

covers diverse fields, ages and ethnic backgrounds - from household

names like Jacinda Ardern and Helen Clark, Malvina Major and

Portia Woodman, to unsung heroines of the suburbs - a Kiwi

Samoan scientist, the first Indian-born female police officer, and a

maker of coffins!

These more than 50 New Zealand women have set out to make a

difference in the world, whether that be on a global stage, or in their

local communities.

18th Abduction (Women’s Murder Club 18)

By James Patterson

Three missing women. Two impossible cases. One determined

detective.

When three teachers disappear without a trace, Sergeant Lindsay

Boxer takes the lead in the investigation. But with no clues and no

suspects, the odds of finding the women alive are getting slimmer

by the second.

Under pressure at work, Lindsay needs support at home. But her

husband Joe is drawn into an encounter with a woman who’s

seen a ghost - a notorious war criminal from her Eastern European

home country, walking the streets of San Francisco.

When Joe’s informant disappears, the two investigations collide.

It will take the combined skills of Lindsay, Joe and the entire

Women’s Murder Club to protect their city, and themselves, from a

monster.

The Gut-friendly Cookbook

delicious low FOdMAP, gluten-free, allergyfriendly

recipes for a happy tummy

By Alana Scott

If you have been prescribed a low-FODMAP diet, it can be really

difficult to work out what you can eat. That’s what Alana Scott found

when she was diagnosed with allergies, coeliac disease and irritable

bowel syndrome. Her frustration at finding the right things to eat led

to her developing a successful website and a range of flavoursome

recipes using low-FODMAP and gluten-free ingredients. She has all

her recipes reviewed by a FODMAP trained registered dietitian, and

her many followers have been asking for the best ones to be gathered into a book, so here it is!

Delicious dinners, breakfasts, lunches and snacks, plus sweet treats and plenty of easy-to-read

background information on FODMAPS, a shopping guide, and how to change your eating through

the whole cycle of the low-FODMAP journey. And in case you are wondering, FODMAP is an acronym

that represents a group of fermentable sugars (Fermentable Oligo-saccharides, Disaccharides,

Monosaccharides and Polyols - short-chain carbohydrates) that are found in a wide range of foods

and can trigger unpleasant gastrointestinal symptoms in some people. Also approved by Allergy NZ.

KIDS BOOKS

Trafficked: My Story of Surviving, escaping,

and Transcending Abduction into Prostitution

by Sophie Hayes

The haunting, unforgettable memoir that took the UK by storm,

Trafficked is a gripping first-hand account of a young woman who

survived the horrors of human trafficking.

Sophie Hayes, a young, educated English woman, was spending

an idyllic weekend in Italy with her seemingly charming boyfriend.

But the day of her return home, he made it clear she wasn’t going

anywhere. Punching and shouting at her, he threatened to kill her

adored younger brothers if she didn’t cooperate to help him pay off

hundreds of thousands of dollars he’d racked up in debts.

Over the next six months, Sophie is forced to work as a prostitute

in a country where she didn’t speak the language, nobody knows

her whereabouts, and escape seems impossible. She struggles to survive, constantly at the mercy

of her boyfriend’s violent moods and living in fear of being killed by any of her customers. When a

life-threatening illness lands her in the hospital, Sophie has a chance to phone her mother and escape

if her boyfriend doesn’t get to her first.

Chilling and captivating, Trafficked is one of the first memoirs to present a stunning personal look at

the criminal human sex trafficking trade and bring this disturbingly widespread abuse to light.

Your Local Views

A common bond of being human

In the wake of the

Christchurch tragedy on

March 15, city councillor

Yani Johanson turns back

to the clock to an opinion

piece he wrote two years

ago about the value of

diversity in our society

At a time when the world is

coming closer together through

cheaper long distance travel

and greater connectivity via the

internet, it feels like there is more

conflict and chaos than ever

before.

Whether it’s the huge number

of refugees fleeing war zones or

the fear-based politics of Donald

Trump and Brexit, it is a time of

great concern for where we are

heading as humans.

As such, I believe we have to

ask ourselves why is this happening?

And, more importantly,

how can we stop this from happening?

In my role as city councillor,

I had the privilege of being

involved in two positive things to

address this.

First, at the city council we

have signed off on a multicultural

strategy, which recognises

“the council has a leadership role

in making Christchurch a city

where diversity is welcomed and

celebrated.”

This strategy has been long

CONNECTION: Linwood Ward city councillor Yani Johanson

with Mohamed Jamma, a survivor of the mosque attacks.

overdue and is a fantastic start on

a journey towards being a more

inclusive place.

Second, I was asked to speak

at the opening of the Friendship

Force national conference.

Friendship Force is a voluntary

group with mission values including

mutual respect, cultural

diversity, cultural exploration

and service.

Its members do this by opening

their homes and hearts to

host visitors from other cities and

countries throughout the world.

They have done an amazing job

bringing people to our city even

after the devastating impact of

the earthquakes.

The work they do and the work

the city council has done on the

multicultural strategy is based on

a simple premise that we all have

a common bond of being human

and that we all deserve to be

treated with dignity and respect.

In my view, when people are

afraid of the unknown, scared of

difference or lacking understanding,

I believe the world is fundamentally

a worse off place to live.

And yet, when we provide

opportunities for dialogue and

communication, for living and

learning and for understanding

and sharing, we are creating a

better world, a better country

and a better city.

In essence, we are creating a

community that celebrates and

cherishes difference rather than

being scared of it.

Following on from the terror

attack, I thought it was timely to

reflect on this soapbox article.

My connections to the attack

were two-fold. As a witness when

it ended, driving past at the same

time police were apprehending

the suspect, and as Linwood

Ward city councillor where the

Linwood Mosque is, it has been

both heart-breaking to experience

what took place and yet

heart-warming to see the community

response.

There is no place for hate

here or anywhere. Kia kaha

Christchurch stay strong.

QE II toilet costs

could be slashed

•From page 1

Cr Livingstone previously said a

house could be built for $350,000

so he couldn’t understand why

a toilet block would cost almost

triple that.

However, city council head of

recreation, sports and events Nigel

Cox said the $1 million budgeted

for the toilet and changing room

block had been an estimate.

The building would have four

changing rooms with showers and

toilets, a referees’ changing room,

storage, public toilets, provision of

services and landscaping including

paving, vegetation, seating, a drinking

fountain and cycle stands.

It is part of the $12 million draft

QE II Park Master Plan.

The first phase of the plan includes

a new playground featuring

a sandpit with a digger and buried

“fossils,” a basket swing, wooden

horses and a tube slide.

In a nod to the 1974 Commonwealth

Games held at QE II, two

running tracks have been recommended

for the area, along with a

four square court and podium.

Upgraded fitness stations are

also in the draft plan, along with

a disc golf course and adventure

nature trail.

It was finalised by the hearings

panel and will be approved by

the city council before planning

begins in July.

Come

Shades of Fabulous, joined Rebecca over

two years ago after hairdressing in St

Martins and the surrounding areas for

many years. Celes has more than 30 years’

experience, and says her favourite aspect

of hairdressing is colouring.

“I enjoy the before and after, and seeing

how happy people are when they leave the

salon.”

The third stylist, Bridget, who also

rents a chair, has been in the hairdressing

industry coming up 20 years and has

worked in the local area for the last six

years.

“We all love working here,” Rebecca says,

“and we have lots of laughs and fun with

our clients.

“All of us are self-employed and our

priority is to make sure our clients are

happy with the service we provide.”

50 Shades of Fabulous offers a full range

of professional cut, colour and treatment

Academic excellence

continues

Yet again, our Cashmere High

School national qualification

(NCEA) results continue to be well

above the national and top decile

school averages, against whom we

benchmark ourselves.

These results are particularly

impressive considering some of

the property disruptions we’ve

experienced over the past couple

of years. It is also wonderful to see

that our students are not simply

“passing” but that almost two

thirds of our students gain their

NCEA qualifications with a Merit or

Excellence Endorsement.

These consistently excellent results

are the outcome of our hard working

and dedicated teachers and students

working so positively together.

Student leaders for 2019

Cashmere High School’s team, comprising Maddie Carter, Polly Daniels, Arabella Lay, Isla McLarin

and Elizabeth Milne, won the New Zealand Readers’ Cup – the national trophy for Year 9 reading

comprehension. This national competition is a chance for Year 9 students to read a pre-selected

list of books and pit their comprehension and memory skills against other teams to win regional

and national prizes. Cashmere High School won our Aoraki regional event, and went on to win the

National event against four other schools, one from each major region.

Council planning events for year

Our Student Council annual

weekend camp at Boyle

River is always a great team

building opportunity for our

young leaders.

Planning is already under

way for a range of studentled

activities including

fundraising for “Shave for a

Cure”, our competitive Inter-

House Events, and projects

around the school such as

our new mural and seating

area.

Also planned is work in the

wider community undertaken

by our own Cashmere

Volunteer Army.

Edwards. This stunning extension, with seven

new classrooms, breakout spaces and staff

Christchurch Schools Rebuild

(CSR) programme.

• The new school Performing Arts Centre

(above right) is due for completion in July, and

will provide a spectacular 800-seat venue for

our school music and drama performances,

and school productions.

• Also as part of the school’s post-earthquake

property works, our tennis and netball courts

(below) are being transformed with new

fencing, asphalt and artificial turf surfaces.

Damaged in the earthquakes, and overdue

for resurfacing our Board of Trustees took

the initiative to fund this refurbishment work

When you need to stretch the budget to buy clothes

stores throughout New Zealand, including four in Christchurch,

conveniently located in New Brighton, Papanui, Hornby and

the country, who are looking for bargains, but still want to look

smart and well dressed.

The friendly staff are dedicated to bringing quality products for

their customers with new stock arriving every day, and they are

always ready to help and advise if required.

SaveMart also supports and helps children with cancer, and

Affordable family

Beautiful photography made affordable

Photography’s pricing structure makes it

easy to do just that, she says.

Whether it is just one or two key images

or a whole album-full you require, Sarah

and her team will work alongside you from

their Colombo Street studio to help you get

exactly what you want.

All images are supplied digitally, so you are

able to pick your images from a professionally

edited online gallery, while having digital

files also means you can choose how to

use them. Blue Bird Photography also

offers a canvas printing service.

In order to capture everyone’s

personality, Sarah prefers to take a

relaxed approach, rather than having

her subjects in stiff, staged poses, and her

friendly approach quickly puts people of

all ages at ease.

Family photography isn’t her only area of

expertise, however. If you are selling your

house or setting up an airbnb, Sarah offers

packages for property photography. She

is also sought after for business headshots

for websites and promotional material. In

fact, if you need high-quality images of

any subject, she will do it you.

Prices start at just $20 for a Happy

Snappy Tuesdays shoot with a variety of

packages and layby services available too.

To book your shoot you can phone

the studio on 365 0575, go to the website

BACK or NECK PAIN?

Advertisement

After twelve years in New

Zealand, Teeter Hang-Ups have

now established a long term

track record with thousands of

people throughout New

Zealand.

Inversion New Zealand was

started by Dave and Nancy Hare,

Dave had suffered over twenty

years of back pain from Degenerated

Discs and had basically

given up and decided to just live

with it. To him surgery was never

an option as long as he still

could walk, there was hope.

“While on an overseas trip I

discovered the Teeter Hang-Ups

for the first time, when I tried it,

the pain completely

disappeared and I was pain free

for about 30 minutes. I never

would have believed it would fix

me completely as specialists had

told me it was irreversible, but I

now knew I had a place to go

every time I wanted some

welcome relief”.

To my surprise the more I used

the table the longer the pain

stayed away, until after nearly

three months the pain was

completely gone, after spending

large amounts of money on

everything I could find I finally

had found something that

worked and it was something I

had never heard of sorting it out

for me in a very short period of

time.

Real Hope For Long Term Sufferers

Once I was sure it really worked

I decided to introduce Teeter

into New Zealand to help

spread awareness of the one

thing that truly helped me.

Over the years I have helped

tens of thousands of people in

New Zealand get some serious

relief and have seen results in

not only backs, but necks, hips,

knees, posture, circulation and

lots more.

The results from what inversion

does is nothing short of miraculous

in areas we never thought

possible, I believe there is a

place for these in every single

home regardless of if you have

back issues or not.

We have introduced them into a

number of schools which are

using them for their special

needs children, the blood to the

brain helps these kids and the

results are excellent. What this

means for the aging population

is that it helps maintain the

health of the brain as we all get

older.

I would not have believed the

results had I not tried it for

myself, and I would still be

suffering to this day. This is why

we travel the country showing

people and letting them see for

themselves how great it is and

how life can be once your pain

free again

IT IS PURE LOGIC AS TO HOW

THE TEETER TABLE WORKS

Discs: It uses gravity to apply traction,

the traction gently opens the discs and as

they open up they create suction, this

suction draws fluid from the surrounding

tissue back into the discs, re-hydrating

them. This is the key! Discs do not have

their own blood supply, they rely on trans

fer of fluid from the surrounding tissue to

keep them healthy and hydrated and over

the years as discs get thinner with age, they

lose the ability to take on fluid (just like

squeezing a sponge) and they start to

de-hydrate.

De-Hydrated discs are less flexible, they are

harder, more prone to injury, they interfere

with nerve roots creating pain and

ultimately the de-hydration causes degen

eration. The Teeter Inversion table slowly

and gently brings the hydration back into

the discs, plumping them up. It separates

the nerve roots far more effectively and

returns quality of life

Muscles: A lot of pain is muscular, when

muscles are stressed they become tight

which restricts the flow of blood and lymph

through the muscles so toxins build up,

Co2 and Lactic Acid. Traction opens up the

muscles, Rhythmic Traction, is a gentle

rocking motion that stimulates circulation

and encourages blood flow through the

muscles, which clears the lactic acid into

your lymph system where it stimulates

lymph flow and deals with it. Most people

with serious neck issues see a large

improvement after only one treatment.

Frank Harwood (84 at time of picture) using his Teeter, Frank’s

been Inverting for over eleven years and has found it keeps him

young

Posture: Poor posture is one f the

major cases of pain and is a major contributor

to the deterioration of the body with

age. A difference in leg length causes most

of the hip and knee issues, as they continue

to place uneven loads on the joints;

similar to the wheels out of alignment on

your car.

Trying to correct posture is extremely

difficult due to muscle memory, as it

constantly pulls the muscles back to where

they were. At a level of 40 degrees or more

on the Teeter, the muscle groups open up

and eventually come back into alignment,

using the table daily, does not allow the

muscle memory to pull them back out of

alignment and slowly the muscles start to

lose their memory and go with the flow,

allowing the body to come back into

correct posture. Then using the table once a

day will ensure it is kept there.

This is pure logic, if a machine is out of

alignment it does not last long, the only

difference between the body and a

machine is that the body is constantly

repairing itself, however if the wear and

tear on the body is greater than the body’s

ability to repair itself, it is a slow decline.

The Teeter slowly brings the body out of its

decline and allows the body to repair itself,

resulting in a far healthier life.

If you are serious about investing in your

health and really sorting your issues out,

come see us at one of our local roadshows,

you have nothing to lose and chances are, a

lot to gain.

Here in New Zealand, Dr Giresh Kanji, is

one of the countries most respected Pain

Specialists. Dr Kanji has been using Teeters in

his clinics for the past 6 years and has

discovered how effective traction is especially

on disc issue.

Dr Kanji is the author of "Fix Your Back" and

"Fix Your Neck Pain, Headache & Migraine",

both books are in most bookstores.

Dr Kanji discovered in the research that the

disc is the most likely source of low back pain

and Inversion showed the best results of all

the trials conducted. Three studies showed a

60% reduction in pain and one showed a 75%

reduction in surgery for people with disc

prolapse.

Dr Kanji endorses Inversion as the best

method to manage back pain, he has

personally been using the Teeter Inversion

tables for his own low back pain, has Teeter

Inversion tables at both of his clinics in

Wellington (The Sports and Pain Clinic) and

has had such success that he is now conducting

New Zealand’s largest study on Inversion

Therapy. In his own words, "these things are

gold and inversion should be a first line

treatment for low back pain”.

A bit about us. . .

At Bodyfix, we know our members by name and offer a

welcoming space for all ages, abilities and fitness levels, right

here in Christchurch.

With more than 37 group-fitness classes per week, the latest

equipment, supportive instructors and a team of leading

personal trainers, we’ve got everything you need to achieve your

goals and enjoy the journey along the way.

The Bodyfix secreT exposed

It’s the harmonious blend of factors at Bodyfix

that’s got everyone talking.

Owner Moana Williams explains that Bodyfix is a

motivational ‘family’ environment for people to

relish in and it is clear that is a social haven where

members come to celebrate their daily exercise fix.

With a relaxed, friendly vibe and a strong

community focus, the Bodyfix team take a

fresh approach to health and fitness. “This is a

welcoming, supportive place to work out, no matter

how fit or unfit you feel you are,” says owner, Moana

Williams. “We encourage people to take a healthy

approach to feeling fit, healthy and happy. It’s not

just about weight loss – it comes from within.”

This unique gym specialises in group exercise

classes, and the expert trainers offer a wealth of

industry experience. “We have a really balanced

team, who are all highly knowledgeable in their own

set of niche markets,” she says. “There’s a real fun,

family feel here and we offer a personal touch. And

the vibe attracts the tribe – likeminded people refer

their friends, so the membership grows naturally.”

Bodyfix has supported a range of charities over the

years by raising money through different events.

“Exercising is also about mental health – a clear

mind is a remedy for most things; which is why we

focus on supporting mental health charities. It’s

a great way to encourage the community to get

moving.”

We regularly hold educational events, fundraisers

and offer our space to groups to support our

community. We are much more than just a gym and

believe that our role goes far beyond exercise.
