Two-year wait for water tank

Space issues

further delay

$2.6m project

PUMP:

the new water

tank at Jeffreys

Reserve.

• By Jess Gibson

A CONTROVERSIAL multimillion

dollar water tank in the

heart of Fendalton has been hit

with a two-year delay.

The preliminary design

phase for the Jeffreys Reserve

suction tank is taking longer

than expected due to space

constraints at

the site, which

has pushed the

completion

date out to May

2020.

The 500

cu m tank will

replace the

current

200 cu m

earthquakedamaged

tank, which supplies

water to the city’s north-west.

City council head of three

waters and waste John Moore

said the space constraint issues

will be remedied once the eastern

wing of the current, un-used

pump station is demolished.

A larger area is needed around

the site to provide space for the

new tank’s construction and

maintenance.

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

chairman Sam MacDonald said

he is “frustrated” the process has

been dragged out.

“We were told at the time [of

the proposal] that it was urgent

work that needed to be done

and that there was effectively

no way around it. So we worked

really hard to mitigate residents’

concerns and now we are back at

square one with delays,” he said.

The project was initially meant

to be completed in June last year,

but was delayed until December

this year after the reserve’s

neighbours expressed concerns

over the concept designs in the

first round of consultation.

IT’S GOOD to see residents being recognised for their

community efforts in Northwood (see page 7).

Northwood New World owner Kathy Smart started Meals for

the Local Community to reward a local hero every week with

two vouchers for hot dinner box meals.

Generous Redwood resident Barry Smart was chosen as the

most recent winner after being nominated by his daughter.

Mr Smart donated a piano to the Christchurch City Mission,

took in a friend for three years after the February, 22, 2011,

earthquake and collected during the recent RSA Poppy Appeal.

Mrs Frampton said customers are encouraged to nominate

good scouts as “a nice way of saying thank you.”

Heartening stuff!

Kmart will be welcomed in Papanui

• By Jess Gibson

PAPANUI RESIDENTS have

given the thumbs up to the

relocation of a Kmart store from

Shirley to Langdons Rd.

A 4500 sq m store is set to

open in the Northlink shopping

precinct in early 2020.

It will mean the subsequent

end of a 23-year tenancy within

The Palms Shopping Centre since

the store first opened in 1996.

News about the move sparked

positive

feedback from

residents in

the north-west

area about

employment

opportunities,

less travel

Simon Britten

distance to a

Kmart store

and a large amount of off-street

parking near the new site.

Meanwhile, the response has

not been so positive in the east.

A petition was started by Shirley

resident Josiah MacKay to open

an entirely new store at Papanui

instead of relocating so that the

existing Shirley store could remain.

“With enough support, I believe

that we could have a chance

in convincing Kmart Australia

to look over their decision in

relocating our Kmart store,” Mr

MacKay said.

A post about the relocation

DEVELOPMENT: Construction is under way on Langdons Rd

where a new Kmart will open. PHOTO: THINK PAPANUI

on the Think Papanui Facebook

page generated more than 3500

comments in 12 hours.

There was some positive

feedback from the public on

the shift, but many expressed

their concerns about the effect

it would have on The Palms and

the lack of access to a Kmart

store for people in the east.

Simon Britten runs the Think

Papanui page and will be a candidate

for the Papanui Ward in

the 2019 local body election.

“I have a bit of a concern that the

new site is a long way from public

transport. It’s about 500m from the

nearest Orbiter bus stop on Harewood

Rd,” Mr Britten said.

“It’s definitely going to add a

lot more vehicle movement in the

area. Langdons Rd is busy with

school students as pedestrians as

well as the elderly,” he said.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member Emma Norrish

said she will be asking staff to

look at the impacts that the

development will have on traffic

in the Langdons Rd area at the

next board meeting.

Mr Britten said he first heard

rumours about the relocation

late last year. He said when he

sent an inquiry to the business

at the time, he received a “noncommittal”

answer about plans

to relocate.

Mr Britten made a second inquiry

in February and received

a message saying they had “no

plans” to open in Papanui but

later discovered a media release

on the Kmart Australia website

which confirmed the proposal.

“If I was to speculate, [the denial]

possibly happened because

of the impacts it would have on

the Shirley side as opposed to

not wanting to tell people about

something new in Papanui,” Mr

Britten said.

Kmart New Zealand country

manager Jason Picard said the

decision was part of a vision

to grow the store network in

Christchurch.

“We are doing this by ensuring

our stores are in the best

locations to service our customers

now and well into the future.

It’s important we support the

communities we operate in and

we hope customers will enjoy

the benefits of our new store in

Papanui,” Mr Picard said.

AMP Capital, which owns

The Palms, was asked what impact

the closure of Kmart is expected

to have on trade within

the shopping centre, but did not

comment on this specifically.

Instead, a spokesperson said:

“AMP Capital has a long-standing

partnership with Kmart

across its portfolio and would

like to thank Kmart for its support

of the centre since the store

opened.’’

NOR’WEST NEWS

Dentistry is a common daily surgical

procedure carried out at our Practice. We are

all trained in dentistry and are lucky enough

to have dental radiography which in the case

of Mabel, it proved invaluable in diagnosing

her tooth troubles. Due to most pets poor

dental hygiene ( daily tooth brushing isn’t

a priority for most people), your pet will

at least once in their life need a thorough

dental exam, scale and polish and possible

extractions under a general anaesthetic.

Checking a pets teeth and gums is a regular

part of a physical exam.

Pet owners often won’t

pick up early dental

disease, only noticing

their pet is suffering if it

refuses food, salivates

profusely or has a very

smelly breath. Many

pets will exhibit no

clinical symptoms.

Poor dental hygiene

leads to other serious

metabolic diseases like

kidney and liver disease, endocarditis, urinary

tract infections and gastrointestinal disease to

name a few.

In older pets, periodontal disease is common.

Here you get infection and inflammation

around the periodontal ligament and tooth

root due to toxins released from the bacteria

in tartar. Early on gingivitis ( inflammation

around the gingiva) is reversible with

thorough scaling and polishing, then a regular

home care dental programme involving tooth

brushing, various gels to apply to the gums,

prescription dental diets, and occasional large

raw bones that cant be demolished ( canon

bones). If left undiagnosed, gingivitis quickly

evolves into periodontitis and you get loss of

bone around the root and a loose diseased

tooth that requires extraction.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

DENTISTRY

In young animals that present with

dental pain, a fractured or chipped tooth

exposing the pulp cavity, or diseased root is

commonplace. These dental problems are

seen in cats due to their fighting and hunting

pastimes. We see these issues in dogs due to

their obsessive chewing and destroying of

bones, hard objects and toys.

Mabel, a 71/2 year old Shih Tzu presented as

her very attentive owner suspected a tooth

issue. Mabel had stopped eating suddenly,

wouldn’t pick up and play with her toys and

occasionally cried out in pain and had become

quiet and clingy.

On initial examination

her teeth and gums

looked very good,

apart from some

mild tartar and

gingivitis. I couldn’t

identify any fractured

or loose teeth, no

lumps, bruising or

lesions were seen in

the oral cavity, and

there appeared to be

nothing stuck. On gently opening Mabels

mouth open she cried. The rest of her clinical

examination was unremarkable.

It was decided to anaesthetise Mabel and

thoroughly examine and probe her teeth

to establish her acute pain. It was only after

performing dental radiography that we were

we able to identify the problem tooth - an

upper molar with an abscessed root that

couldn’t be seen from the oral cavity exam.

This tooth was extracted and Mabel recovered

quickly and uneventfully.

Make sure your vet thoroughly inspects your

pets mouth on a routine checkup. It can save

lots of discomfort and money spent, if dental

disease is identified early on. A healthy mouth

leads to a happy life!

Fendalton water tank

still two years away

from being finished

•From page 1

The 2017 consultation

document showed only one

option for the new water

tank, which was near the

existing station.

Concerns over security,

the tank’s visual impact,

use of the existing site,

consideration of

other locations

and the tank’s

height prompted

the city council

to change the

design.

The second

round of

consultation last

year included a

detailed multicriteria

analysis

of more than eight sites, as

well as the city council’s

preferred option, which

was the same site as the

damaged tank.

Affected residents made

two presentations in

opposition to the preferred

David

Cartwright

option at a board meeting

before the decision was

made in August.

They did not want the

tank put at the existing

site due to the reduction in

open space and the visual

impacts.

But the community

board selected the

preferred option as

it alleviated many

of the impacts

raised in the first

consultation round.

Community

board member

David Cartwright

said it is hard to

please everyone

when consulting

on infrastructure

which is needed in the

community.

“No matter what you’re

constructing on, there

will always be varying

opinions,” he said.

The preliminary design

phase should be completed

“We’re delighted to be one of the most cost

effective options in your area when it comes

to selling property. You’re in good hands with

Ian and Cathy Falconer.” - Mike Pero

by the end of May.

It would then be shown

to the community board

and an information session

would be held with affected

residents. Work to raise a

well-head to remove the

current chlorination is

due to start this month

before construction of the

tank begins in either July

or August. The tank will

take eight to 10 months to

complete.

Out of the $2.6 million

budget, almost $380,000 in

ratepayers’ money has been

spent on process costs since

the project began in 2017.

This includes consultation,

options, a detailed soil

investigation, concept

plans and the preliminary

design.

IT IS your chance to have a say

on upgrades to the contentious

Breens, Harewood and Gardiners

Rds intersection.

The city council has proposed

two options to address and

improve safety at the intersection.

Option one, which is the city

council’s preferred option, is to

make both Gardiners and Breens

Rds a left-turn in and left-turn

out only by closing the median on

Harewood Rd.

This would mean vehicles

travelling from Gardiners Rd to

Breens Rd would need to use the

U-turn bays already provided on

Harewood Rd.

This option also proposes

the installation of a pedestrian

crossing, which would only stop

vehicles when it is in use.

A bus-only right-turn bay will

remain on Harewood Rd to allow

buses to turn into Gardiners Rd.

Option two is to install traffic

lights at the intersection.

New street

named

after old lake

• By Jess Gibson

A NEW street in a Burnside

subdivision has been named with

history in mind.

Lake Bryndwr Lane was chosen

by the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board for

the street in the subdivision at 196

Roydvale Ave.

The Fendalton Quarry was

established by the Ashby brothers

in the early 1900s and was made

up of three large pits.

A natural spring near Roydvale

Ave eventually filled the main pit

with water once it had become

unused and became known as

Bryndwr Lake.

At places, the lake was 6m deep

and was a place where locals went

swimming.

In 1965, the land was brought

by the Roman Catholic Diocese

who filled the pit in 1968 as members

planned to build a church

there.

The church was never built and

this area of Burnside remained a

wasteland for many years.

The community board considered

two alternative street names,

Boag Lane and Cors lane, which

both had historical relevance to

Burnside.

Nearly 50,000 books recycled at Bookarama

• By Jess Gibson

HUGE CROWDS cleared out

almost 50,000 recycled books at

the 14th annual Bookarama in

Bishopdale.

The Rotary Club of Bishopdale

Burnside’s three-day book sale

event had its biggest turnout to

date, with the YMCA Recreation

Centre reaching its maximum

capacity of 400 on the first day.

Project leader Lindsay Crossen

said it was the first time the club

had to close the doors to clear

numbers since the event started

in 2005.

While he would not disclose

the exact figure, Mr Crossen said

the money raised between April

26 and 28 is “slightly up” on the

$60,000 raised at last year’s

event.

“Books are alive and well,

that’s all I can say,” said Mr

Crossen.

The money will be used to

support the community in a

number of projects over the next

12 months.

The club contributes to schools

and youth programmes as well

as organisations such as

Canterbury Charity Hospital

Trust and Odyssey House,

among others.

More than three-and-a-half

shipping containers of books,

DVDs, records and jigsaws were

donated to the club over a fourweek

collection period.

Mr Crossen said the collection

usually lasts for five weeks but

the club had to cut it off because

there were “too many books for a

three-day sale.”

About 35 people from the club

were involved in organising the

Bookarama in the month leading

up to the event.

Free meals for good Samaritan

• By Jess Gibson

REDWOOD’S Barry Smart has

been rewarded for his generosity

with a couple of nights off

cooking.

‘Meals for the Local

Community’ is a giveaway run

by Northwood New World,

which selects one resident every

week to receive two free hot meal

vouchers from a list of public

nominations.

Mr Smart, 79, who received the

vouchers from Northwood New

World chef Daniel Sekulla, was

nominated by his daughter.

Mr Smart donated an electric

piano to the Christchurch City

Mission when one was needed

for an event.

He also took in a family friend

for three years in 2011 after their

house was severely damaged in

the earthquakes.

He also put his hand up to

collect donations for the RSA

Poppy Appeal.

Northwood New World owner

Kathy Frampton started the

giveaway in December after she

thought about the heroes in the

community who rush around all

day, leaving little time to make

their own dinner.

The winners are drawn every

Tuesday and have a month to

collect their vouchers from Mr

Sekulla. Mr Smart said he felt

“very optimistic” about his win.

“It’s nice. It’s something that

I’ll enjoy because I do my own

cooking and a couple of hot

meals will save me a job,” he said.

Mrs Frampton decided on the

meals as the prize because they

are a “wholesome alternative to

takeaways.”

“A hero doesn’t have to be

a highly visible person doing

everything. A hero can just be a

mum who’s got lots of kids and

still goes to school to help out, or

a neighbour who drives someone

to the supermarket every week

to help them get their shopping,”

said Mrs Frampton.

“It’s a nice way of saying

thank you. All these little things

make a difference to what your

community is, how it gets on and

how healthy it is.”

New bus

stops for

Orbiter

• By Jess Gibson

A CHANGE in the route of the

Orbiter has led to new bus stops

on Greers Rd and Waimairi Rd.

Two bus stops will be installed

on either side of Greers Rd

outside numbers 36 and 79,

near Westburn Tce. A pair

will be installed on either

side of Waimairi Rd outside

numbers 222 and 239-241, near

Wentworth St.

Another two will be installed

on Waimairi Rd, near Dovedale

Ave outside numbers 128-130

and across the road at 135-139.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood and Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

community boards

met last week to discuss and

approve the location of three

sets of bus stops for the new

route.

The Orbiter change was made

in January due to the closure

of Homestead Lane to buses

meaning the former route via

Homestead Lane, Ilam Rd and

Memorial Ave could no longer

be operated.

Charitable status

granted to

coffin club

• By Jess Gibson

A BISHOPDALE coffin club

which donates caskets to

mothers who have lost their

babies has been granted charitable

status.

Since Donna Sutherland

launched the Kiwi Coffin Club

at the Menzshed site on Kendal

Ave in 2017, she has been relying

on money earned from selling

adult-sized custom-made caskets

to fund ‘angel boxes.’

Angel boxes are custom-made

caskets for babies lost to cot death,

stillbirth or miscarriage which are

then delivered to Christchurch

Women’s Hospital.

Now, with charitable status, the

club can apply for grants from

major funders such as the New

Zealand Lotteries Commission

and the Lions Foundation.

It also means that if people wish

to make a donation to the club, it

will be tax-free.

Ms Sutherland has been

working with a pro bono

lawyer to get the registration

approved since she applied in

November.

She said she is “ecstatic” that

the club can apply for funding,

as it will now have back-up

money to cover the costs of the

caskets.

A PHOTO with Prime Minister

Jacinda Ardern is not the only

from the Top Scholar Awards

Ceremony.

The 18-year-old former Rangi

Ruru Girls’ School student

was also presented with the

Top Subject Scholarship award

for printmaking at the Prime

Minister’s function at Parliament

on Wednesday.

Alyssa is now studying fine arts

at Canterbury University and

said the award came out of the

blue.

“It honestly came as a

complete shock, I even had to

phone a friend to make sure it

was actually me. While I was

loss for words at first as it was

overwhelming but extremely

exciting at the same time, I still

slept well that night with all the

excitement burnt off throughout

that day,” Alyssa said.

The New Zealand Scholarship

is awarded to the top 3 per cent

of students in each different

subject.

Alyssa’s printmaking was based

on concepts of destruction

and repair following the

earthquakes.

was also awarded top scholar

in printmaking, and Rangi

More than 9300 students

entered for the New Zealand

scholarship exams last year

across 35 subjects.

Of those who sat New Zealand

Scholarship, 2415 students were

awarded one or more

scholarships.

NZQA deputy chief executive,

Kristine Kilkelly said the New

as the most prestigious secondary

school award in the country.

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

principal Sandra Hastie said

there is a diverse student body

at Rangi, and each student is

supported to achieve the very

best she can, both in academic

and non-academic areas.

“The scholarship examinations

test high-level critical thinking

in addition to specific subject

knowledge, and it is important

to recognise and reward this

combination of attributes,” Dr

Hastie said.

“We are proud at Rangi to offer

such a wide range of options for

our girls whether it be science,

Regular use of Finnishstyle

saunas can reduce

blood pressure and the

chance of stroke too.

Virtually maintenance free, a quick

sweep out and wipe down every

few weeks is sufficient. An annual

oiling of the outer timber is also

recommended. Electricity costs are

also minimal. Business owner Mark

Smith, who uses his several times a

week for over a year, says it costs

him $2 a session.

Backyard Sanctuary

Thanks to Canterbury Saunas, you can turn your garden

into a sanctuary of relaxation, refreshment and rejuvenation.

Finnish barrel saunas are statement

pieces that provide the ultimate

place in which to unwind and relax.

Fortunately, you don’t have to go to

Finland for the pleasure.

Canterbury Saunas brings authentic

Finnish barrels to Christchurch,

where a passionate family company

handcrafts these from Thermowood –

Nordic spruce heat-treated at 205°C.

The timber is free of resin, durable,

not prone to warping and 25 per cent

more thermally efficient compared to

cedar. Canterbury Saunas uses 45mmthick

timber to ensure longevity.

Canterbury Saunas also exclusively

offers the Huum heater range, from

4.5kw to 18kw. The standard model

holds 55kg of stones, which produces

fabulous steam and, with an upgrade

option, the heater can be controlled

with a smart phone. Alternatively,

the traditional woodburning heater is

perfect for remote locations.

Regular use of Finnish-style saunas

can reduce blood pressure and the

chance of stroke too. It also benefits

skin condition and eases breathing

problems, and soft tissue aches and

pains.

To see one of these sanctuary’s up

close, view the Canterbury Saunas

demonstration model at Oderings

Garden Centre, 20 West Coast

Road, Yaldhurst.

The highs and lows of Firestone factory

Murray Williams of the

Papanui Heritage Group

highlights the history of

the Firestone Factory in

the second of a series of

articles

LAST MONTH we reviewed

the genesis of the plant in

Langdons Rd. We now turn to its

subsequent history.

When completed, the original

size of the plant was about 7000

sq m and the production capacity

was 546 tyres and 400 tubes

per day.

In 1950 the company showed

its optimism by adding another

3000 sq m to the size of this

facility.

In 1962 the company celebrated

the production of three

million tyres since the factory

opened in 1948, while its daily

rate was now up to 1000 tyres.

By 1971, Firestone employed

230 workers involved in the

manufacturing process as well

as 46 in administrative roles and

a further 90 salaried staff. The

firm also supported a number of

travelling salesmen and an ancillary

business retailing tyres and

repairing punctures.

Firestone developed an integrated

marketing campaign to

national economy. However, at

this time it was becoming more

difficult for the company to

maintain profitability.

Relations between management

and union were not always

harmonious but a greater problem

was the Government decision

to open up the economy by

phasing out tariff protection for

locally manufactured goods.

By 1988, Firestone had sold the

business to the Japanese-owned

Bridgestone which maintained

production until 2009.

Fujitsu’s Catechin Filters are

approved by the Asthma and

Respiratory Foundation NZ’s

In the last few years, the

In your

neighbourhood

Imagine getting tattooed at

the friendliest place on earth

The brightly-coloured façade of The

Jolly Octopus makes it hard to miss at

272 Greers Road, Bryndwr. The quirky

name suggests a different, friendlier

approach to tattooing. As clients step

into the cool reception area, they enter a

welcoming tattoo and piercing parlour

where everyone is very much part of the

extended family. Help yourself to the lolly

jar or a cookie, have a chocolate milk and

browse the art on display while you decide

how you want your own personal work of

art to look.

Eight talented artists, some of the

best and most creative in Christchurch,

guarantee you’ll work with someone who

understands exactly what you want, and

whose style matches the image you are

looking for. From delicate and feminine

designs through bold and colourful to

incredibly detailed, black and white work,

the choice is all yours.

While many tattoo shops can feel

intimidating, especially for a first-timer

The Jolly Octopus is not at all daunting.

One client said that they had “never

walked into such a welcoming tattoo

parlour.” That means a lot when you are

having something as special and personal

as a tattoo. You want to feel that you are

in the hands of artists who are not only

talented but who really care about you.

They make the whole experience feel calm

and relaxing, from the moment you park

right outside, to when you leave with your

own fabulous tattoo or piercing. Every

step of the way is all about you – another

client points out that ‘they make you laugh

and feel at ease. “The shop is scrupulously

clean, spacious and your privacy will be

respected right through the experience..

The Jolly Octopus is somewhere

people go back to again and again. They

appreciate the quality, the hygiene, the

great atmosphere and the service. Bring

them your dreams and they’ll bring them

to life.

Football squad learn valuable

lessons on tour of Spain

CHRISTCHURCH United

under-16 players are still buzzing

after returning home from their

17-day football tour of Spain.

The 14 and 15-year-olds

from the Christchurch United

Football Academy spent the

past two weeks as guests

of the famous Valencia FC

Academy, which is renowned for

producing some of the greatest

players in Spain.

After watching Valencia

in action in the Primera

division and Europa League,

the youngsters had a priceless

footballing experience when

they watched Barcelona FC

claim the Spanish title at the

famous Nou Camp stadium.

“It was an unbelievable

night,” said Christchurch

United Academy director Colin

Williamson.

“The Nou Camp stadium was

pumping and the Barcelona

fans were all still in the stands

celebrating two hours after the

match. The boys won’t forget

that night as long as they live.”

The Barcelona match was a

fitting end to a whirlwind tour

built around daily trainings

under the guidance of Valencia

Academy coaching staff. The

Valencia Academy has produced

superstars like Manchester City’s

David Silva and Real Madrid

striker Isco.

In the last few training

sessions, the Christchurch

United players were joined

by the familiar face of United

product Eric Sugahara, who is

currently part of the Barcelona

Football School in Australia and

happened to be in Spain for a

tournament.

“Eric knew most of the

boys and joined us for a few

certificates from Valencia coaching director ​

SPORT

trainings and our final practice

match against one of the local

teams. He did really well, in

spite of being a bit younger

than the other players,” said

Williamson.

Between the heavy training

schedule, the Christchurch

United squad played four

matches against local club teams

and learned many valuable

lessons.

“The Valencia coaches found

some good opposition for our

boys and, even though we were

often just as fast or skilful as the

Spanish players, they showed us

we need to be a lot smarter,” said

Williamson.

“In most matches, we got

caught out by quick counterattacks

or punished by them

scoring from free kicks. They

knew when to commit a small

foul to slow us down on attack

or draw a foul in a dangerous

position,” said Williamson.

“It confirmed why we

are working on developing

intelligent players at

Christchurch United. These

matches showed our players

that wonderful skills alone can

get you so far, but that you have

to be smart to become a great

player.”

Williamson was proud of

his players, and said they

made great strides and showed

tremendous courage in a narrow

3-4 defeat against Vilmarxant

CF in the final match, in spite

of conceding two early goals

and losing two key players to

injuries. “When the Valencia

Academy director handed them

all their certificates on Friday, he

said they really earned it.”

Research supports

eye health

Are you Magnesium

deficient?

Nutritional researchers have

discovered a range of nutrients

that are essential for eye

health. Some of the most

essential nutrients that

have been shown to

protect and even improve

eye function are:

Selenium, is a trace mineral

that is low in N.Z. soils and therefore in

many of our foods. Researchers believe

selenium may help prevent cataracts,

macular degeneration (the leading cause

of impaired vision in older people) and

may also improve dry eyes and general eye

health.

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage

of the population are low in. Zinc has been

shown to help protect the eyes from the

damaging effects of light as well as slow

vision loss due to macular degeneration.

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Betacarotene

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper have

potent antioxidant ability and help protect

the eyes from damage

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing

nutrients that have been shown in

landmark research to not only provide

potent eye protection but may even help

reverse some of the signs of age-related

macular degeneration (AMD).

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in potent

antioxidants may help protect the lens

and retina from damage and reduce the

risk of cataracts. They also may

help improve blood supply

to the eye, strengthen the

small capillaries of

the eye and may help

improve night vision,

may alleviate many eye

ailments including eye fatigue

that may be caused by reading, driving and

computers.

Eyebright may help normalise eye

pressure and reduce eye allergies.

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential

for correct eye function. It may also have a

detoxifying affect on the eye.

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye fatigue,

bloodshot eyes and maintain good vision.

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection.

It provides many nutrients, is rich in

oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) that

are potent antioxidants that may protect

eyesight.

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic

amount help provide comprehensive eye

protection, may slow and possibly even

help reverse eye damage that could lead

to loss of vision. All these nutrients are

available in an economical one a day easy

to swallow capsule.

Further information is available in

store at Marshall’s Health & Natural

Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are always

happy to help!

Minerals are the building blocks of

good health. Some minerals are only

needed in trace amounts where others

like magnesium are need in much larger

amounts and on a regular basis to prevent

deficiency and maintain optimum health.

A large number of us do not obtain

sufficient magnesium from our diet

and may notice some of the common

signs of deficiency. Some of the more

common symptoms that may be caused by

insufficient magnesium are: leg and muscle

cramps, twitches, muscle pain, muscle

fatigue and weakness, tremors of hands,

blurred vision, restlessness, poor sleep,

raised and/or unstable blood pressure,

poor circulation, irregular heartbeat,

shortness of breath, swallowing problems,

dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation,

irritability, seizures, poor concentration

and many more.

Although many young people now

show signs of magnesium deficiency

symptoms generally worsen as we age

due to our digestive system being less

efficient. Taking a magnesium supplement

of sufficient strength may be a sensible

option to top up our vital magnesium

levels. Not all magnesium supplements

however are well absorbed by everyone.

Luckily GO- HEALTHY’S marine sourced

magnesium offers excellent absorption due

to its natural co-factors that include many

trace nutrients that are low in the diet but

essential for good health.

and Medical Herbalists at Marshall’s

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of

dampness in

your house

Now with the colder and wetter weather

on its way, home owners are focusing on

ways to make their homes comfortable,

warm and healthy for their families

throughout winter. Rising damp is an issue

that affects many of our older properties

which suffer from poor, or no, insulation.

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many

people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests

have shown that up to 40 litres of water

can rise from the ground and enter a

house every day, leading to mildew, mould,

condensation and musty smells. Moulds

can produce various allergic reactions

and the frail, elderly and very young are

especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The

team understands the problems caused

by rising damp and are there to help.

They will come to your damp home

and pump a lightweight, flowable foam

concrete under your timber floored home.

Specially adapted for our New Zealand

conditions and applications it provides a

layer of protection against rising moisture.

An unexpected benefit that the team at

Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed

recently, is that many owners of properties

which had underfloor foam concrete

installed, reported that it also provided

protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete

Ltd now for your free, no obligation

quote and complimentary appraisal of

your underfloor ventilation needs. Phone

03 376 4608 or 0508FOAMCO for more

information.

Does your range

hood suck?

Whether it plain sucks, or whether it

doesn’t suck enough, or even if it is a noisy

sucker - Smooth-Air can help.

Smooth-Air can either improve your

current range hood, or custom build to

your specifications.

“We can take your attractive but noisy,

underperforming range hood and retrofit

it with one of our whisper quiet remote

extraction fans.” says Richard Jack,

Regional Manager of Smooth-Air, “We

have fans which can sit in the ceiling space,

or outside on your wall or roof to make it

extra quiet.”

In-house testing showed a difference of

20dbA (decibels) between a remote fan

from Smooth-Air and a common in-hood

fan range hood. This corresponds to a

quadrupling in perceived noise level.

Range hood conversions include removal

of existing fan and rewiring for new remote

fan. Your local sparky can easily carry out

installation of the new fan.

For kitchens not suited to a standard

range hood, Smooth-Air can manufacture

and powdercoat a bespoke range hood to

match your décor. Custom built range

hoods have the benefit of being designed

specifically for your house.

As well as being whisper quiet, Smooth-

Air’s remote fans are powerful - sucking

out cooking smells and moisture so they

don’t circulate around your home.

Moisture in your home can cause mould

and mildew on your walls and furnishings.

It is also bad for the health of the occupants.

Household cooking is a major source of

internal moisture, therefore an effective

kitchen extraction system can make a

significant difference to internal moisture

levels.

Smooth-Air can also help with other

forms of ventilation, such as bathroom

extraction, condensation reduction or

whole house ventilation.

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH

(0800 766 684) to ask how they can help

you with your kitchen extraction, as well

as any other ventilation requirements.
