principal

• By Jess Gibson

MAIREHAU Primary School’s

principal is still waiting for a

safety report on two “dangerous”

pedestrian crossings used daily by

its pupils.

In September, the Papanui-

Innes Community Board asked

the city council to investigate

the crossings on Innes Rd after

concerns were raised about

motorists failing to stop.

Principal John Bangma said he

is “frustrated” that the school has

heard nothing after six months

and the problem “hasn’t changed.”

The New Zealand Transport

Agency told Nor’West News in

September it had recorded five

crashes at the crossing outside

Mairehau Primary School dating

back to 2002 – one fatal, one

serious, one minor and two noninjury.​

Board deputy chairwoman

Emma Norrish followed up

the issue with the city council

recently and was told staff aim to

provide information for each of

the crossings this month.

from the reporter’s desk

IT WAS fantastic to see members of the Warriors put a smile

on the faces of more than 100 pupils at Bishopdale School last

week.

They gave a KidsCan raincoat with the Warriors logo on the

back to every child at the school to keep them warm and dry as

winter approaches.

Sarah Stewart from KidsCan says the school wanted the visit

to go ahead as planned so the pupils could look forward to it

following last month’s tragic events.

In other school news, we revisit the concerns that at least one

principal has over pedestrian crossings outside his school.

It has been about six months since Nor’west News reported on

the “dangerous” pedestrian crossings near Mairehau Primary

and St Francis of Assisi schools. The principals are still waiting

for a safety report from the city council while pupils continue to

cross the road there every day.

Cycle route plan worries businesses

• By Jess Gibson

STORE OWNERS on Edgeware

Rd are confused over whether

a proposed cycle route could

lead to parking being removed

outside their stores.

Concerns were raised after a

public consultation document on

Christchurch Northern Corridor

traffic mitigation

was delivered to

shop owners by

the city council

in March.

The proposal

showed the city

council’s plan

David Timbs

to undertake a

study into a cycle

route on the east

and west sides of Edgeware Rd,

running from Springfield Rd to

Packe St.

Peter Timbs Meats owner

David Timbs said when he

looked at the diagram, it seemed

like the cycle route could remove

parking, which would affect foot

traffic and have a major impact

on the business.

Crisp on Edgeware owner

Simon Lau also said the proposal

might lead to car parks being

removed.

But city councillor Mike

Davidson said that is not the

case.

Cr Davidson talked to city

council staff after hearing about

the confusion from businesses

and was told there has been “no

discussion over the removal of

car parks.”

He said he could understand

store owners’ concerns because

of the Papanui Parallel cycleway

upgrades in 2017, which hurt

several businesses after parking

was removed.

But he said that it is too

early to know what will happen

and the study will need to

be done before any options,

including the removal of

parking, are even discussed.

But Mr Timbs said whatever

the outcome of the study, there is

“no way” traffic could go

both ways with car parks,

cycle routes and a footpath on

Edgeware Rd.

There are seven car parks

outside the two buildings leased

on Edgeware Rd for Peter

Timbs Meat’s wholesale and

retail stores.

Although he understands

the study is only a proposal,

Mr Timbs is still gearing up to

oppose any changes that may

happen down the track.

Anniversary

of Nor’West

Brass Band

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

IT WAS over a beer at a busy pub

that Avonhead’s Bill Vail and his

friend Adrian Dalton decided the

north-west of the city needed its

own brass band.

The idea was sparked after Mr

Dalton, a teacher at Burnside

High School, was concerned his

brass students had no local band

to play in.

The two musicians decided

to do something about it and

the Nor’West Brass Band was

formed.

Five years on and the booming

band, based at Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School, has surpassed their

original goals to have 80 band

members over three tiered levels.

In the time it has been

running, it has grown from about

five to 85 members. The band was

set to hold a concert to mark its

five-year anniversary on Sunday,

which featured a performance

of Christchurch Alive!, written

by Mr Vail’s son Dale, who has

received a fellowship with the

Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

Costly security upgrade for casket maker

• By Jess Gibson

A BISHOPDALE coffin club

which provides free caskets to

mothers who have lost their

babies has forked out $2300 for

new security after a burglary.

The Kiwi Coffin Club is

attempting to raise the money

spent on alarms, window bars

and doors at its container on the

Menzshed site on Kendal Ave

through a Givealittle page.

The club makes ‘angel boxes’ –

custom-made caskets for babies

lost to stillbirth, cot death or

miscarriage – which are donated

to Christchurch Women’s

Hospital.

Club founder Donna

Sutherland said insurance will

cover the cost of the equipment

taken when the burglars broke

in through the window.

The items taken included an

air compressor, airbrush guns

and hoses. “They even took my

pink tools and toolbox,” she

said.

Mrs Sutherland started

the Givealittle page a week

after the burglary but had to

extend it after it did not meet

the target.

All money used to fund the

angel boxes is earned through

selling adult-sized, custommade

caskets.​

Mrs Sutherland, who started

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

the project in 2016, said she was

“deeply saddened” when the

container was burgled.

She is retired and devotes all

of her time to the coffin club

with four other trustees who

help out at no cost.

One of the trustees,

Kevin Bradshaw, discovered the

container had been broken into

and said he contacted

Mrs Sutherland straight

away.

Mr Bradshaw volunteers

at the Menzshed and acts as

a quality control checker to

ensure the caskets are up to

scratch before they are sold to

customers or donated to the

hospital.

Lovelock garden impresses again

• By Jess Gibson

BRIAN AND Janet Lovelock

have two new garden trophies

to display in their Northwood

home.

The couple took out two

awards at the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Pride Garden

Awards on Wednesday night.

The ‘most attractive residential

garden’ and ‘community board

choice’ awards add to the list of

accolades they have won in past

gardening competitions.

“It’s such an exciting thing.

You do these gardens for

pleasure, but to get a reward

is just extra special,” said Mrs

Lovelock.

More than 100 awards went

to residents from Fendalton,

Waimari and Harewood at the

awards ceremony.

About 200 people filled the

Russley Golf Club, including

recipients and their guests,

speakers and board members.

The awards acknowledge

community gardens

and celebrate the effort residents

put into them.

There were six special

awards, which went to people

with exceptional gardens in

the community, two of which

were claimed by Mr and Mrs

Lovelock. They have been top

contenders in many gardening

competitions – and also won

seven awards for their garden

at this year’s Christchurch

Beautifying Association summer

garden competition.

They also received premier

gold at the spring gardening

awards from the Canterbury

Horticultural Society in 2017.

“It’s so rewarding. It just

shows how much other people

appreciate what we do,” said Mrs

Lovelock.

Board chairman Sam

MacDonald attended and said

the night went “really well.”

“This is a great annual

event, where our board get the

opportunity to recognise the

hard work of so many people

who make our streets and

communities such nice places to

safety report

Ms Norris said it was unclear

after a six-month wait whether the

City council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas said staff will meet with

to confirm top priority transport

“Mairehau Primary School

options to improve the zebra

Ms Norris is frustrated

the process is taking so long and

the board will continue chasing

it up, she said. Mr Bangma has

worked at the school for 17 years

and said the problem has got

worse.

He said motorists speed through

the crossings even when the signs

are out before and after school.

“The law is clear that when one

sign is out, regardless of which

side it’s on, that traffic must stop.

We get cars speeding up so they

can get through before the other

sign can be put out,” said Mr

Bangma.

Your Local Views

Rates increase ‘isn’t sustainable’

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community

Board chairman and

chartered accountant

Sam MacDonald writes

about concerns over rate

increases

ARE WE being rated out of our

own homes?

I regularly have ratepayers

contact me expressing their

concerns over the rate rises,

and the idea that we will all

eventually be “rated out of our

own homes.” It particularly

worries me for the large fixed

income population across our

community.

It’s appropriate for me to note

this is my personal view and I’m

not speaking on behalf of our

board as I write this.

As an area, we contribute just

over $100 million in rates to the

council each year, so when we

factor in the yearly increases,

this is a large contribution from

us all (whether you own or rent

your home). What do we get for

that?

I want to share with you the

most common questions and

concerns I get locally from

residents: Do we need more

cycleways? What’s happening

with our water? Why did the

town hall cost us millions more

than planned? Why are our

roads still the way they are?

What would you add to

that list? Here’s mine: In my

household, my rates now cost

more than the cost of my power

bill, what more am I getting for

that?

The council draft Annual

Plan has been out for public

submissions over the past

several weeks. This has been an

opportunity for us all to have a

say and to tell councillors and

the mayor what we think the

priorities are in our city, whether

that be local projects or the rates

charged to us all.

As you will recall, the council

10-year Long Term Plan was

set last year, which on current

projections would mean our

rates will increase by 50 per cent

over this period.

That isn’t sustainable and

nowhere near

the annual inflation increase.

Whether it be deferring

spending money on some

new projects, getting greater

operational efficiency within

the council or being as bold as

imposing a rates increase cap, it’s

clear something has to change.

I hope you are able

to follow the city council debate

and amendments over the

Annual Plan in the coming

weeks, I know I will be.

City2Surf

Iconic event brings community together

The Kadodo Western African band get the crowd warmed up before the start, including Alice Egan, 14, Isabelle O’Carroll, 15, and

Bing Lin.

• By Julia Evans

“THIS YEAR was special.”

Star Media regional manager

Steve McCaughan said this year’s

45th fun run was one of the most

poignant City2Surf events there

has been.

Thousands of Cantabrians

turned out, entries were well

up on 2018, with a surge of last

minute entries at the end of the

week.

Had it been any closer to the

tragic terror attack of March 15

that claimed 50 lives, Mr

McCaughan said the City2Surf

would not have gone ahead.

Instead it was a chance to bring

people together to have a positive

distraction through the adversity,

he said.

“It felt like the first step that

Cantabrians could take in the

healing process and moving back

to some normality . . . we needed

this,” he said.

“It brought people together

to share in a community activity

with the benefit of some physical

activity.”

There was also an increase in

the number of small groups, with

more people running in twos,

threes and fours than usual, Mr

McCaughan said.

“People were getting together

and saying let’s do this.”

This year’s supporting charity

was the Canterbury Charity

Hospital Trust, which is currently

offering free counselling following

the Christchurch shootings.

Maori health provider He

Waka Tapu had 1200 people running,

jogging and walking under

its banner.

The major prize, return flights

to Singapore with Singapore

Airlines, was won by one of its

team.

“There was a strong sense of elation

at the finish line, more so than

usual,” Mr McCaughan said.

“People from almost every part

of the community came over the

line as one. It was inclusive, which

is a value that New Zealanders

have embraced.”

Proposed

Aquatic

Thrill Ride

Summer ‘19

Our biggest development yet...

We’re pumped! We have

resource consent to build

five new thermal pools and

a new aquatic thrill ride.

The development will cost

$4.5 million and is set to

open in late 2019.

Best of all, we’ve worked

hard to make the new

additions environmentally

sustainable.

Proposed

Cascade

Pools

Our newest thrill

The new 13.5 metre high slide will attach

to our existing hydroslide tower above the

SuperBowl flume.

We’re yet to name the slide, but it will be

a rush. Riders will shoot down a winding

hydroslide in 2-person tubes, before going

down a steep drop that propels them

up a near-vertical wall for a moment of

weightlessness, before zooming back down

and onto the slide’s finish.

Five new pools

Five new pools will sit among river boulder

terraces and native gardens next to the

Rainbow Pools. They’ll be linked by cascading

water over the rocks – a peaceful place

to relax and soak while enjoying the water

sounds surrounding you.

The bottom pool will have beach-style

access making it easy for everyone to use.

Environmentally

sustainable

Half of the energy required to run the

new pools and slide will come from a heat

transfer unit that will utilise energy which is

a bi-product of our electricity generator.

The pools are designed to be super water

efficient with no holding tanks. That was

important to us – we’ve worked hard to save

58,000,000 litres of thermal water a year in

recent times.

We are also pioneering new construction

techniques so the pools’ foundation will sit

above ground and not damage tree roots

below.

Timeframe

Construction is underway and

we will be open Summer 2019!

were New Zealand under-17

footballer Gabrielle Rennie,

Canterbury rugby rep Grace

Brooker, junior international

triathlete Ari Graham and New

Zealand junior track cycling rep

Annamarie Lipp.

ST ANDREW’S College

basketballers Samuel

Jenkins and Mac Stodart

will join Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School’s Ashlee

Strawbridge at a national

junior selection camp this

month.

Samuel and Mac have

been selected for the New

camp, while Ashlee will

push her case for the

under-19 women’s team.

Three Christchurch

students were also named

in the New Zealand men’s

under-17 camp team –

Hunter Adam and Tanae

He also hinted

that Basketball New

Mr King said if he can

make it happen, he will

look to get the junior

players court-side to see

their senior role-models in

action.

“These camps take on

SENIOR LIVING

Centuries old folk remedy supports

good health!

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an

array of powerful health benefits. It is none

other than the popular apple cider vinegar

or ACV.

Since the time of Hippocrates – the

“Father of Medicine” – ACV has been

renowned for its curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS &

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis

reports how he found that Vermonters

who regularly consumed ACV and

Honey had excellent health with many

putting in a vigorous day’s work on the

farm even when well into their eighties.

He also noted the effects of ACV and H

on arthritis to be remarkable with many

patients reporting almost total relief

after taking a course of the mixture.

Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and

potassium in cider vinegar counteracted

calcium deposits and helped the body

control calcium use. He also noted that

Vermonters who consumed ACV and H

around meal time had excellent blood

pressure and circulation. The reason he

found was that protein foods thickened

the blood and vinegar thinned it. As the

blood thickens it cannot pass as easily

and quickly through the blood vessels

and capillaries. This poor blood flow

would reduce cellular health by limiting

nutrients to the cells as well as waste

elimination from the cells. To prevent

cell damage the body naturally increases

blood pressure but this puts more stress

on the blood vessels, organs and heart.

Having ACV and H with meals will

help prevent protein raising the blood

pressure. It also contributes to a feeling

of greater well-being because the thinner

blood circulates quickly and more easily

through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found

regular consumption of CV and H to be

an excellent health tonic with numerous

Health attributes.

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains

all the goodness of the apple in a form

that is readily accepted by the bodyGood

health starts with good digestion and

assimilation of nutrients. ACV taken

before food will stimulate and promote

healthy digestion and assimilation of

vital nutrients for good health. A wellfunctioning

digestive system helps

prevent disease by neutralising any toxic

substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all ACV is

produced in the traditional way and results

are likely to prove disappointing with these

other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV & ACV

with 20% Manuka Honey is produced in

Canterbury from Organic whole apples in

the traditional way. It is double strength so

you can use less.

Collagen

the body’s youth protein

Collagen is the primary protein in the

body. It is a major component of skin,

hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments,

joint cartilage, bones, gums, teeth, eyes,

and blood vessels.

In fact collagen is the primary

structural component for all tissue

in the body, providing the strength

and resilience associated with youth,

beauty and wellness. The body’s natural

collagen production decreases with

age resulting in many signs of aging,

such as flaccid skin, wrinkles, ligament

and tendon injuries and aching joints.

Collagen supplementation is one of

the most fundamental things a person

can do to prevent premature aging and

promote youthful vitality.

NEOCELL are the industry leaders

in research on collagen supplementation.

Through advanced research they have

perfected a way to hydrolyse collagen and

effectively reduce its molecular weight this

improving the absorption of collagen into

the blood stream by over 90%.

A clinical study on NEOCELL

COLLAGEN has shown skin hydration to

increase an average of 21% and up to 50%,

with 92% of test subjects experiencing

firmer, softer skin. Most people taking

NEOCELL COLLAGEN reported seeing

visible improvements within two weeks.

Collagen supplementation provides

the nutrients necessary to support the

body’s collagen supply. It can help reduce

fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin

elasticity, support building of strong bones

and teeth, strengthen the nails and hair,

and is vital for muscle growth, It also

assists weight loss by helping burn fat

for energy, promotes wound healing by

supporting the regeneration of healthy

tissue as well as help support overall

health.

HOME & HEATING

Bathroom

Ventilation

The extraction of air from the bathroom

should be a priority for all houses and

commercial buildings.

Bathrooms can generate a large quantity

of steam and odours. It is important this

compromised air does not circulate around

the house.

Bathroom odours can be unpleasant,

especially when near living, sleeping or

working areas.

The moisture generated by showers and

baths can be damaging to your home and

furnishings and be a major contribution

to condensation. Damp houses are not a

healthy environment for anyone to live in,

especially for children or other vulnerable

people.

By extracting air from the bathroom to

outside, warmer air from inside the house

will move in to the bathroom. Whereas

opening a window can draw cold air into

the bathroom and blow the smelly, moisture

laden bathroom air into the house.

Modern houses are built to be very

airtight and require mechanical ventilation

such as extraction fans or heat exchanger

systems. Although older houses can be

draughty, the air often flows in the wrong

direction. Therefore, they also usually

require mechanical ventilation to keep the

air quality higher.

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.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required extraction for your

bathrooms, and look into air exchange

for your whole building. 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 in-store but they can also

provide innovative solutions tailored

to differing requirements. You can

contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH

(0800 766684).

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.

When you move into a Summerset retirement village, you’re not just

moving house – you’re joining a vibrant and welcoming community

where you’ll feel completely at home.

At Summerset we put you at the heart of everything

we do, so you can enjoy the freedom of living the life

you choose.

Artist impression

The perfect home is waiting for you. From villas and townhouses, to

apartments – you’ll find a place to make your own. Our homes are

accessible, high-quality, and there are no worries about maintenance or

upkeep as we do it all for you. Pets are also welcome, and you can even

go away on holiday knowing your home will be safe and secure. We’ll

also make sure you’re aware of all costs, giving you the certainty that

there won’t be any unexpected surprises.

When it comes to activities and events, there’s always something

happening to keep our Summerset community involved and

entertained, and you can choose to do as much or as little as you like.

If you need some extra care or support, our continuum of care means

we’ll be there for you as your needs change, giving you the peace of

mind to continue living life to its fullest.

Over 5,000 residents are already enjoying the Summerset life across

25 villages around New Zealand. If you’re interested in Summerset for

yourself or a family member, come and visit one of our Christchurch

villages to find out more about the Summerset life.

Our warm, modern homes are built with accessibility as a priority. And there’s no need

to worry about maintenance or upkeep. Simply choose your new home and make it

your own. You can even bring along your pet.

Summerset at Wigram and Summerset at Casebrook have brand new homes

available now and our Summerset at Avonhead village is pre-selling* homes that

will be ready to move into in June!

Come along to our Open Weekend and find the home that’s right for you. We will take

you through village plans and pricing, and answer any questions you may have.

If you would like to get some information prior, you can make an appointment or call

in and visit us any time - we are open 7 days.
