Pool group fails to get rates reprieve

• By Jess Gibson

A BID FOR a rates remission

at the site of planned Edgeware

Pool has sunk.

The St Albans Pavilion

and Pool Group applied for a

remission for the empty site on

Edgeware Rd as its members

have been paying

from their own

pockets since

purchasing the

land in 2016.



are granted to






which provide a public good

through the use of their land.

City council chief executive

Karleen Edwards declined the

application from the group, which

is a registered charity, as the land

is not open for public use.

St Albans Pavilion and Pool

spokeswoman Valerie Somerville

said the application was an

attempt to relieve some pressure

while the group tries to reinstate

the pool, which was demolished

in 2007.

“We accept the reason for

the council’s decision and are

very grateful for the (Papanui-

Innes) Community Board’s

support in suggesting other

options to apply for funding,”

said Mrs Somerville.

The community board received

a letter from Dr Edwards

informing members about the

decision after it wrote to the city

council in support of the group’s


Dr Edwards acknowledged

the group is doing good work

and said the city council would

be “happy to accept a further

remission application once the

site is open.”

In 2016, the city council sold

the land for the Edgeware Pool to

the St Albans Pavilion and Pool

Group for $1.

The city council stated at the

time it would not contribute to

the project, but later said it would

commit $1.25 million if the

group could raise the rest of the

$5 million cost.

So far, about $170,000 has

been raised for the project,

which has been used to cover

costs including resource consent

and developing a design plan.

The project is in its feasibility

stage, which will assess the

practicality of the pool designs

and determine whether it is an

asset to the community.

After this, the group can apply

for money from major charitable

funding groups.

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk


The city council received 49

submissions on the $1 million

toilet blocks proposed for Roto

Kohatu Reserve in Harewood.

The public provided feedback on

the designs for two separate toilet

blocks to go next to the popular

Rua and Roto Kohatu lakes. A

summary of the feedback will be

available once staff have replied to

the submitters.


The front counter at the Papanui

Police Station re-opened on

Wednesday. All front counter

services, other than the

Christchurch Central Police

Station, were closed after the

March 15 terror attack. The

number of police staff involved in

the response to the attack meant

services were reduced. Due to

operational demand, each stations

opening hours may vary.

is taking place at the Cranford

Parking limits should boost business

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Jess Gibson

PARKING restrictions could

lead to a much-needed boost in

business for a block of shops in

St Albans.

Ten car parks on the northern

side of Malvern St between

Rutland and Gossett Sts will

get 60min limits, while two

car parks on Rutland St near

the entrance to the Canterbury

Rugby Union’s car park will get

30min limits.

The Papanui-Innes

Community Board approved the

decision to put time restrictions

on the car parks, which currently

have no limit. It aims to provide

higher turnover parking for

customers using the Rutland St


Shop owners suffered a

downturn in business in

2017 after the installation of

the Papanui Parallel Cycleway

removed about 50 per cent of the

car parks along Rutland St.

There are currently only seven

restricted 15min parking spaces

outside six shops, the rest are allday

car parks ,which are usually

taken up by CRFU members and


Coco Gifts owner Liz van

Monfort said she noticed a 20 to

30 per cent downturn in business

The $1.2 million library rebuild

In January, city council

community libraries manager

Erica Rankin said the cracks were

considered safe but were being

fixed as the damage was noticeable

to visitors.

She said there is a high

likelihood of more shrinkage

building, but these could be

covered by floor materials.

said Ms van Monfort.

Susan Ross, who owns the

Susan Ross uniform shop, said

parking has been a “nightmare”

the assembly hall in January while

the main library remained open.

But the city council has

decided to close the building

while the entrance is fixed as the

expected noise and dust would be

unpleasant for the public.

The closure is timed to

coincide with the Easter and

Anzac Day.

Library items can still

be returned to Bishopdale Library

while the building is closed.

The closest alternative libraries

are the Papanui Library in

Langdons Rd and Redwood

Library in Main North Rd.

and the changes are a positive

outcome. Rutland St Dairy

owner Jackson Zhang said he

suffered a downturn of about

40 to 50 per cent following the

cycleway changes.

Mr Zhang has also faced an

ongoing problem with people

disregarding the current 15min

restrictions, so the board has

asked the city council to consider

enforcement signs.

The city council sought

feedback from affected residents

and businesses on Rutland and

Malvern Sts on the proposed

changes in November and

received 63 submissions. Of 44

submissions which opposed the

changes on Malvern St, 38 were

from people associated with

CRFU and the remaining six

were unidentified. The majority

of these submissions supported

the changes to the two parks on

Rutland St. One submission said

60min was not long enough for

people going to meetings or for

training sessions at Rugby Park,

while another said rugby players

would need to park further away.

City councillor Mike Davidson

said the “strength in numbers” of

the CRFU’s submissions needed

to be taken into consideration

when looking at the benefits to

the wider community.

A CRFU spokesperson said

the “decision-making process is

ultimately with the council.”

Two other options were

considered by the board –option

one was to provide 10 60min

car parks on Malvern St and six

30min car parks on Rutland St,

which would have removed all

of the all-day parking between

Innes Rd and Malvern St. Option

three was to do nothing.

Veterinary practice

Bilateral anal Gland SurGery

Anal gland issues are

common problems

we see in our canine

patients today. The

anal gland has no

real function except

it’s the dogs “special

scent” or parfum.

This secretion has a

distinctive fish smell

to it making it very

unpleasant for us,

plus its heaving with

bacteria! Not a good

look or smell on the

new sofa.

Dogs present

because of pain and anal irritation leading

to scooting, licking or biting of the area.

Often it’s too painful for these dogs to toilet

so they become constipated. Severe cases

become infected and the anal sacs swell and

can eventually burst, discharging pus either

outwardly or inwardly around the perineum.

Occasionally anal sac fistulas develop which

persist for ages. Impaction of anal sacs can

lead to toxaemia and dermatitis. Some dogs

present because they leak anal gland fluid

constantly which becomes very difficult to live

with if your dog is an indoor pet.

No one really knows why anal glands become

a problem. Some cases present due to

diarrhoea, constipation or anal sphincter

laxity. Some cases are related to anal duct

obstruction which leads to infection,

abscessation and sometimes rupture of the

sac. Other cases are due to hypersecretion

which can happen with food allergies, thyroid

diseases and infectious skin disease.

Whatever the cause, my job is to rectally

express them which isn’t particularly nice for

the patient as often by this stage they are

painful. It is a procedure mostly I can perform


If the anal sacs are infected I either prescribe

antibiotics systemically or I instill an antibiotic/

anti-inflammatory ointment into the sacs for

2-3 treatments. Sometimes a prescription food

is recommended ( either for food allergies or

a diet high in fiber) and revisits are advised to

check the sacs.

In chronic, recurring and difficult cases that

don’t respond to

medical therapy,

often the best

option is bilateral

surgical removal.

This option can

completely eliminate

the disease and

make the owners

and dogs’ life far

more bearable. Dogs

can live without

these anal sacs – it’s

just a fiddley surgery

and great care has

to be taken when

working around the

anus to avoid incontinence issues.

I have had lots of practice removing anal

glands over the past 30 years – so much so

that I get referrals from other clinics.

Juno, a young Labrador cross is having

bilateral anal gland surgery. Juno presents

every 2-3 months with anal glands that just

leak and wreek everywhere. They are not

infected nor painful to squeeze. She has

received various medical treatments and is on

a Royal Canin hypoallergenic diet, but nothing

seems to help.

The surgery takes roughly 60-90 minutes,

because I am very careful around this delicate

area. Juno is maintained throughout the

surgery on intravenous fluids and Megan

my surgical nurse is monitoring all her vitals

(heart rate, temperature, respiratory rate, body

temperature and oxygen saturation) to ensure

a safe anaesthetic and quick recovery.

Juno was a star patient and the two anal

glands were removed. She was discharged

on antibiotics, pain medications and local

anaesthetic cream to apply to the surgical

area. I recommended an E collar to wear

initially to stop her worrying her surgical site

and a soft diet 5 days post surgery.

My advice is – don’t struggle with this

problem in your family cat or dog as it’s

not going away. These glands have no vital

function and can be removed safely and

effectively in the right surgical hands, leading

to a better quality life without the nasty

“It’s fresh and it feels like home”

Colleen Shah loves the

ease with which she can

keep in close contact with

friends and extended family,

while living at Ngaio Marsh

Retirement Village.

Her apartment offers a

beautiful view out to the

village gardens, and is located

in a quiet part of Papanui in

the heart of Christchurch.

Colleen can easily drive to

Merivale and other nearby city

suburbs, before returning to

the sanctuary of her serviced

apartment. “It’s clean and it’s

fresh and it feels like home.”

Home is important to

her. Colleen has had an

adventuresome life including

living for a good spell in

India, where she mixed with

politicians and diplomats.

She originally trained in

Wellington in the diplomatic

service and was posted to New

Delhi. Her husband Vinay

Shah, who was an aspiring

politician, died in a plane

crash in 1976. In her serviced

apartment she has a photo

album of her wedding day

on Christmas Eve 1969. The

photo of her table of guests

including such dignitaries as

Indira Gandhi.

Colleen previously worked

in foreign affairs in Wellington

before that posting, but

remains a Cantabrian at heart.

She likes the options of

either joining in community

activities, relaxing at home

or heading out for an

appointment or to see friends.

Her own family, including

Serviced apartment resident Colleen Shah with sales advisor Marie Kyle-Stevenson

her daughter who lives in

Perth, know she is in a lovely

environment and can choose

to visit her whenever they

want. She has two stepchildren

living in India.

The staff at the village

have completely won her

over with their charm and

caring attitude.

The village provides

independent living in a

townhouse, assisted living in

serviced apartments, and the

very best of resthome and

hospital care. The village is

peaceful and conveniently

located close to both Merivale

and Northlands malls and the

central city.

Facilities include an allweather

bowling green, indoor

heated swimming pool, spa,

atrium, gym, hair salon, bar,

library and shop. “I spend

a lot of time in the library

here, which is a nice part

of the central building. I’m

often sitting there reading

The Press.”

Outside is the croquet lawn

and of course the gardens.

“One of the wonderful things

about the village has been the

display of impatiens owers in

pink and orange. Our residents

can see these brilliant colours,

and they take pleasure in

being able to see owers when

they go out,” Colleen says.

Colleen says the facilities are

great and the gardens give a

real sense of space and beauty

to the living environment. She

also loves the quality of the

meals provided in the village.

She had previously lived in

her own apartment in Carlton

Mill Road, then made a move

to a central village before

coming to Ngaio Marsh.

She is very happy to

have two friends from

her last village now living

on the same serviced

apartment floor as her. Sales

Advisor Marie Kyle-Stevenson

says Ngaio Marsh is a very

attractive option for people

looking at retirement villages,

particularly given its

central location.

It has a great layout

including beautiful green

spaces to provide both a visual

delight and space for the

village community to enjoy

outdoor events. “It’s spacious

and there are a good number

of walks near the village,”

Marie says.

“There’s a walk that goes

right up the west edge of the

village up to Northlands Mall,

and there’s another great walk

that takes them to a café.”

Although the village is

close to a lot of amenities, it’s

tucked away location means

that residents enjoy peace and

quiet in a friendly community.

Chorus has its sights set on New


The choir of 140 women will

represent New Zealand at the Sweet

Adelines International competition

in the United States in September

after winning the national heat for

the 11th time.

It won’t be the first time the group

has performed at the competition –

the choir has previously taken the

stage in San Antonio, Hawaii and

Indianapolis in the United States, as

well as Calgary, Canada.

In its most recent trip to Las Vegas

in 2016, the choir finished fifth in

the world at the competition.

But director Virginia Humphrey

is hoping to do better at this year’s


Coaches will fly over from Los

Angeles, Sweden and Seattle to train

the choir before it heads to New


Mrs Humphrey said the group

could go every year if it wanted but

aims for every three years due to

the high cost of the trip. The choir

will showcase jazz, popular New

Zealand music, ballads and swing at

a southern-style-themed fundraiser

on April 28.

The money raised will go towards

accommodating two Swedish singing

coaches during the trip, hiring

stage equipment and flying props


The choir will donate 10 per cent

of its proceeds to the Muslim Association

of Canterbury after the

March 15 terror attack.

The group will be judged on

sound, music, expression and showmanship

at the competition.

Mrs Humphrey formed the group

in 1985 after being part of a barbershop

chorus in Canada.

“I loved it so much I came home

and started a chorus here,” she said.

The group has since won every

national competition it has entered

since 1987.

The fundraiser on April 28 will

showcase two a cappella shows at

2pm and 7pm at Harmony Church​,

hygge at home

[pronounced hue-guh ]

It’s definitely got me thinking. This month instead of

writing (which to me is talking) about property in its

usual commercial and clinical way, I’ve decided to

explore the deeply satisfying concept of what a home

is. What makes us rush home, why some homes

engage you at every level and how this deep sense of

comfort and safety are important because they are.

Last year I was introduced to the concept of Hygge.

Usually I struggle with concepts with words I find

difficult to say but this word stems from the Danish

representation of what is “cozy”.

It’s not a formal method of living, it doesn’t dictate or judge, it

merely encourages you to know or find what is comforting and meaningful

then ensuring the essence of this is part of your home life.

The consistent elements of this sit as easily in a Kiwi lifestyle as a

Scandinavian one and includes: enjoying or being close to nature, creating

intimate cozy spaces, having meaningful items in your home rather than

massive amounts of stuff or clutter (that’s me challenged!) and finding joy in

the simple things.

With all of this in mind, I thought I’d share some of my own Hygge

interpretations and ways in which I enjoy bringing a strong sense of home

and family into my life.

• Blankets, I love them everywhere and not just for decoration but for

warmth, snuggling and occasionally as a quick cloak walking from one part

of the house to another.

• Big couches that you can lie on or fall asleep in. Not those tiny little things

that you just fit on with your back straight and your feet tucked in.

• Candles, flowers and lamps. No surprises here and if there’s nothing

at the markets I’ll forage leaves and random bits of greenery. All of these

provide me with a sense of peace and respite.

• Pictures of my family, if there was a fire I’d grab my framed pictures and

feel grateful.

There you are. I live much of my life in the world of real estate.

I’m constantly interpreting or being asked to explain its nuances.

The Christchurch market going into winter, this winter needs a clear head

and a strong sense of purpose that’s why celebrating the gentle rhythms of

your own home is important for me and no doubt you.

Happy April, try Hygge.

Popular pharmacy

offers much more

than expected

As residents of Bishopdale and the

surrounding areas know, they can rely on

the friendly pharmacists and retail team at

Unichem Bishopdale Pharmacy for all their

pharmaceutical needs as well as health,

personal care and beauty products and


However, there is much more on offer at

this popular pharmacy, with one of their

key features being the extensive selection of

fashion scarves.

“We are well-known for our scarves

and we sell hundreds every month,” says

business owner Maria, who runs the

pharmacy in partnership with Amanda and


“Our retail manager goes to three gift

fairs a year and sources the very latest in

colours and designs for our customers.

They are mostly one-offs, however there is

often the potential to re-order if a customer

misses out on a particular one they like.”

A number of the retail team members

have particular talents for colour matching,

and can help customers choose the

right scarf for their personal style and

colouring, and also show them different

ways to tie and wear scarves, Maria says.

Prices range from $11.99 up to $100 for

the most luxurious designs, with most of

the scarves priced around $20.

A new range of ponchos has arrived at

Unichem Bishopdale – just in time for

the cooler weather. Priced from $30 to

$120 these come in a variety of fabrics and

shades, including merino, and are a very

popular, easy-to-wear fashion item.

Another reason why customers keep

coming back to Unichem Bishopdale is

their extensive range of gift items.

“The feedback we get from people is that

they always seem to find what they want,

and in their price range,” Maria says.

Added to that is the complementary

gift-wrapping service, she says.

“Customers can walk in, find just what

they’re looking for, have it beautifully

gift-wrapped and walk out ready to go.”

When it comes to health and wellness,

Ma Baker - your local

They say that if you want to know the

best place to find a great bakery, follow the

locals, and in Edgeware and Bishopdale,

you’ll find both the residents and those

working in the area are regularly heading

Their yummy food options in-store can

be described as honest Kiwi tucker and

there’s something for everyone. Everything

is baked daily by their team of bakers, from

the fresh bread displayed in store which

is also used in their sandwiches and rolls,

to their delicious and so-moreish cream

cakes, scones and slices. It’s a perfect spot

to call in for lunch or afternoon tea with

friends, to share a cuppa and a cake with

someone special, or for tradies to fill up

on their large selection of pies, stuffed

sausages, toasties, buns and donuts, and

they can be comfortable knowing they are a

tradie/hi-vis/workboots-friendly bakery. It

is also a popular spot for business people to

hold casual weekly meetings.

When cooking a meal is too much after

a busy day, parents can select something

from their large deli-bars and take home

large-sized bacon and egg or family meat

pies or pizza breads with fruit pies to follow

– their budget-friendly prices mean that

take-out or eating out doesn’t need to be

When choosing the right school for our

tamariki we often go by the ‘feeling’ we have

when we visit, as much as by the programmes

that schools have on offer. The world demands

fewer people who can do repetitive tasks and

more people who can think creatively and

critically. That’s why our vision, our aspiration,

as a school is to be ‘A centre of creative

excellence’ in everything that we do, whether

visual arts or chemistry, volleyball or music,

management or curriculum organisation. In

doing this we haven’t forgotten the importance

of the strong relationships that we build with

all of our students, and the importance of

individualising learning pathways so that

we come as close as we can to meeting every

individual student’s needs. Hornby High

School’s feeling is one of positive relationships

that support learning. Students often comment

that we feel like whānau, like family. This all

takes place within our amazing new facilities,

some of the most modern in the country.

These facilities are allowing us to develop a

curriculum that caters for individual needs,

that supports student passions, and helps

our students to grow their heart for their

community, while emphasising our values

and promoting the ethos of kindness, of

manaaki. We are also committed to engaging

with whānau in any and every way we can. I

Middleton Grange School was

established in 1964 with the aim of

providing a first rate general education

and biblically based teaching in the

Christian faith. We see learning not

as an end in itself but something that

happens alongside the development of

character and a desire to serve God by

serving others.

We look forward to seeing our young

people excelling in academic, sporting,

cultural and service activities with a

sense of personal achievement. We also

want them to identify the strengths,

skills, talents and abilities that God has

put within each one of them, not just

for their personal benefit, but for the

benefit of the communities that they

live in. Serving others with compassion

and kindness is part of the ‘DNA’ of

Middleton Grange School. We want our

young people to engage in the society

and culture that they live in, to be a

positive influence and to point others to

God by their example.

We appreciate the hard work that

staff and students put into producing

top academic results, but what we value

even more highly is wisdom, character,

integrity and a willingness to help and

encourage others.

St Thomas believe

the best preparation

for life is an

education in a caring

diverse environment

At St Thomas’ we believe that the best

preparation for life is an education which

fosters excellence in a caring, diverse

environment. Our staff are committed

to guiding our students through a broad

range of spiritual, learning, culture,

sporting and service opportunities

in order to develop young men with

“educated hearts and educated minds”.

We are a state integrated Catholic

school for a maximum of 615 students

from Years 7 to 13. Our size enables us to

provide individual attention and develop

close relationships with our students in

order for them to develop a healthy selfimage,

relaxed but confident personal

skills, and a positive outlook on life.

We are a high performing academic

boys’ school and as such, maintain a clear

focus on boys’ needs and the pathway

from boyhood to manhood. We will

provide your son with adventure, testing

of courage and strong, good male role


We want the young men who graduate

from our College to be men of justice and

compassion, who believe they have much

to offer the world in order for it to be a

better place.

Steve Hart, Principal

St Thomas of Canterbury College

Giving boys the

opportunity to be great

St Bede’s is a Catholic College for boys

founded by the Society of Mary in 1911

and it is also the only Catholic boarding

school for boys in the South Island.

Catholic, Marist and Bedean principles

and values form the basis of a holistic

education at the College. We aim not

to make the College great but to ensure

every boy has the opportunity to be great,

and we endeavour to develop young men

of Catholic hearts and minds through the

experiences the boys have in their time

here at the College.

St Bede’s is a College for all…a place

where gospel values are practised to

help form principled men; a learning

environment where everyone achieves;

a place that teachers want to come

to because of the strength of the

community; a place also, where boys can

embrace spiritual, sporting, cultural and

community activities, which all combined

shape boys into men. That’s the priority

and that is in our DNA.

We welcome parents and boys to the

College’s Open Day on Wednesday 8 May

between 9.00am – noon, where you will

have the opportunity to tour the College

and meet staff and students.

Parents are also invited to attend the

Information Evening, commencing at

7.00pm, where Senior Management and

students will provide further information

about the College.

High School

- Preparing

students for

their future

“Our aim is simple... to

provide the best education

possible for every student”

Giving students the

opportunity to study from

an innovative and broad

curriculum is critical to

providing each student a

pathway that meets their

individual needs. We allow

for a greater range and

flexibility in subject choice

including the utilization

of the secondary/tertiary

interface. This reinforces the

philosophy underpinning

personalised learning and

is strongly supported by

understanding our students’

interests, passions, talents,

and ultimately their career


We understand that for effective

learning to take place, it has to be

implemented in such a way that students

will be highly engaged. The school

does this in a ‘forward thinking’ way by

creating learning environments that allow

our students to see value in what they do

and achieve. Papanui “PRIDE” is what

we represent and we demonstrate this by

having young adults leave our school as

confident learners who have gained the

appropriate qualifications and social skills

to become valued contributing members

of society.

All that we do here is reinforced by

positive relationships, an ethos of caring,


cultural responsiveness, inclusion, and

high expectations – what we call “Our

Full service Model”. The school highly

values the connectedness of curricular

and co-curricular learning. We have a

philosophical understanding that the

holistic development of the student is

critical to their individual success.

The school has worked hard to

consolidate recent initiatives to ensure

sustained and continuous improvement.

You are invited to view our website,

school charter, ERO report, and/or

contact the school for more information.

We look forward to welcoming all

prospective students and their families/

whanau to visit our school.

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and

as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.

Scientists at Rush University Medical

Center found those most deficient

in vitamin B12 to have the smallest

brain mass and the lowest scores on

tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration and brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains and score

higher on cognitive tests than those with

lower levels. Yet another recent landmark

study showed that B12 supplementation

slows the accelerated rate of brain

shrinkage and declining cognitive function.

B12 is essential for energy production, cell

health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles,

nerve health and repair, and prevention

of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular

risk factor that is known to cause damage

and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also

increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard

researchers found

a 34% decrease

risk of vision

loss in a study

of participants

aged 40+ who

supplemented with

B12. Another study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in


Brain fog, forgetful, feeling old, low energy, mood swings,

difficulty sleeping, pins & needles, numbness in legs

Up to 1 in 2 people may have a shrinking brain due to a lack of vitamin B12. Supplementation of

methylcobalamin B12 has been shown to reduce the rate of brain shrinkage & support memory &

brain function. B12 is also known to protect against homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk

factor that can also damage the hearing, eyesight & affect the mood. B12 is essential for energy,

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb

it declining with age as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication and other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth and

thru bypassing the digestive tract have

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in

the body.

The tree of LIFE

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times,

new research has shown that neurons

can grow back with the right conditions

and that a special extract of Gingko

Biloba (EGb-761 or TEBONIN) has

been clinically found to assist in this.

The implications for stroke recovery are

obvious, but researchers also know many

of us suffer from undetected “microstrokes”

that over a period of time slowly

reduce our cognitive function. TEBONIN

is prescribed worldwide as a natural

supportive agent for a healthy brain and

cognitive function. It supports healthy

mental performance, concentration, focus,

alertness, motor function and to help

with many conditions including tinnitus

(ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo

and normal balance. TEBONIN improves

micro-circulation and helps the blood

flow reach those critical places it needs to

get. It is a potent anti-oxidant and makes

the red blood cells more pliable and

capillary walls more flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented

multi-step extraction process. Each small

tablet contains a highly concentrated

50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic

clinical dose without having to take a large

amount of the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba

products on the market, and tested by a

major medical journal, only TEBONIN

passed all five of the test requirements.

Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements

and the rest didn’t pass more than three

out of five requirements. TEBONIN is

the only Gingko biloba extract shown

to activated all areas of the brain and is

considered the gold standard in Gingko.

TEBONIN has been trusted by millions

of consumers worldwide for over 30

years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

Tyres, rims and even

great coffee

Word of mouth is the best

recommendation for any business, and there

is a raft of customers happy to recommend

JCM Direct Tyres in Middleton. The

independent, family-owned and operated

business supplies tyres, mags and rims and

it is clear from their feedback that they

provide ‘outstanding customer service,’

‘really know what they are doing,’ and even

provide ‘tasty coffee.’

Reviews like these are hard-won, with

the emphasis being on making sure they

go the extra mile to really meet the needs

of the client. As an independent dealer,

they are not tied to a specific brand.

Instead, they will look at your vehicle,

your budget and your driving style to

provide you with what you need instead

of what the franchise wants you to have.

This can be brand new tyres such as Pirelli,

Continental, GT Radial and Nankang, or

high end, almost-new second hand tyres

in mint condition, often the same brand

names as the new options. The JCM team

wants to know their customers are leaving

them with their vehicles, from caravans to

utes, that are safe on the roads.

They will give you their honest opinion

and expertise about what you need too.

It could be more cost effective in the long

run to spend a little more a quality tyre and

reduce the risk of punctures on the Garden

City’s rebuild roads, and if you do have a

puncture, they can repair it quickly and


It is not only tyres – they supply rims

from the 1930s to the present day. If you

are lucky enough to own a classic vehicle,

you will know how difficult it can be to

find authentic parts, and the JCM team will

help you source what you need.

They also provide alloy wheels, spare

wheels plus wheel and tyre combo packages

to make their excellent products even more

affordable. They are even able to help you

with finance options.

Open six days a week, you can find

them at 8c Birmingham Drive on the

corner with Hands Road. Check them

out on Facebook.com/JCMDirect, or

visit JCMDirect.co.nz to see what their

family can do to help your family.

of air quality

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

The quality of the air we breathe

affects our health and ability to

perform. We breathe in and out

approximately 20,000 litres of

air every day. It is therefore very

important to ensure good air

quality indoors through adequate

ventilation. Ventilation is the

process of air exchange to provide

the necessary air quality that meets

the needs of the occupants for clean,

fresh air. Low oxygen with high

carbon dioxide causes stuffiness

in the room and occupants can

feel drowsy. Invisible harmful

substances like a high content of

dust and tobacco smoke are harmful

and can cause various diseases. Even

bad smells can cause discomfort

or irritate the nervous system. In

summer, it’s easy to open windows

for cross ventilation, however as

winter approaches, we start to shut

up out houses to trap in the heat and

as a result, air quality can decline.

Ventilation includes both the

exchange of air to the outside as

well as circulation of air within

the building. It is one of the

most important factors for maintaining

acceptable indoor air quality in buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In

case of poor or insufficient air intake from

outside, the oxygen content decreases,

humidity and dustiness levels increase. If

exhaust ventilation is not provided or it is

not effective, polluted air, smells, humidity

and harmful substances are not removed.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required air exchange for

your building requirement.

Smooth-Air offers a wide range

of ventilation equipment, from

air vents to ducting for fans,

for both the commercial and

domestic markets. They have

an extensive range of fans and

ventilation components instore

but they can also provide

innovative solutions tailored to

differing requirements.

You can contact Smooth-Air on

0800 SMOOTH (0800 766684).

Are you struggling with the heat of

Summer or wanting to get organised for

Winter? With the ever changing weather

patterns, heat pumps have the flexibility

of being able to heat and cool which is an

advantage no other appliance can offer. This

represents great value for your investment

as you can use it all year round. The team

at Enviro Master Ltd can help keep you

cool this Summer either at home or work.

Enviro Master supplies, installs and services

all the leading brands including Panasonic,

Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means

our team can show you which system and

brand will best suit your needs.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,

now is a great time to beat the 1st of

July deadline. Inadequate heating and

ventilation can lead to mould growth and

dampness in your property, leading to

costlier maintenance and an unhealthy

living environment. Providing a fixed

heater with a higher heat output and lower

running costs, like a heat pump, will enable

your tenants to heat the area effectively.

It will also discourage them from using

unflued gas heaters which can make a

house damp and mouldy.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for

any repair or damage caused to the system

due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s

five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration

so customers have an understanding on

how it will best meet their needs.

For a free in home consultation, call

Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our

showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd,

Waltham, Christchurch.
