Car park restrictions set to ease

congestion at Nunweek Park

• By Jess Gibson

Kate Trolove

A SIX-MONTH parking

struggle for users of Harewood’s

Nunweek Park is over.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

has approved 120min parking

restrictions on all 152 spaces in

the car park off Wooldridge Rd,

which are currently being used

all day by some employees of

nearby businesses.

The Canterbury

Hockey

Association

approached the

community

board about a

“considerable

shortage”

of parks for

hockey players

and other users of the park.

In December, no-stopping

restrictions and a flush median

were installed on Wooldridge Rd

outside the entrance to the car

park after the road became more

heavily used and safety concerns

were raised.

As a result, business employees

who previously used the onstreet

parking on Wooldridge Rd

began using the Nunweek Park

car park.

The association recorded the

number plates of cars using the

car parks for two weeks after

PACKED: The Canterbury Hockey Association recorded the number plates of cars using the car parks and found that 70 to 80 per

cent of the parks were taken up all day

changes were made and found

between 70-80 per cent of the

parks were taken up all day.

This was during times when no

events or organised recreational

activities took place at Nunweek

Park.

Canterbury Hockey Association

representative manager Kate

Trolove said the enforcement of

two-hour parking restrictions

was “fantastic.”

“Now, people won’t struggle to

find a car park. People can drop

their kids off safely, which is a

big thing for us as we had kids

trying to run or get into the car

park around cars and buses,” Ms

Trolove said.

get in touch

from the editor’s desk

A GOOD election battle is looming in the

eastern suburbs (see page 5).

Phil Mauger is taking on the incumbent

Glenn Livingstone in the Burwood Ward.

It will be a tough campaign for both.

Mauger heads Mauger Construction Ltd,

a company which spans three generations and came out of the

original family business, a service station in North Beach.

Livingstone will no doubt try to exploit the fact Mauger no

longer lives in the eastern suburbs.

But the 61-year-old is adamant this won’t be an Achilles heel.

He can push on the council table for improvements to the ward

from anywhere, he says.

Keeping rates in check by stopping unnecessary council overspending

looks like being his key platform.

Let the battle begin.

Designs for community centre revealed

ST ALBANS residents can

expect to see a new $3.1 million

community centre by next year.

Final designs for the building

have been revealed, with construction

likely to begin at the

site of the old community centre

on Colombo St in a few months.

The

single-storey

building will

have modern

timber and a

glass facade

with 400 sq m

of floor space,

Emma

Twaddell

including a

hall with a

stage, three

meeting rooms, an office and a

kitchen.

Outdoors, there will be a deck

and sufficient off-street parking.

The designs have been

approved by Papanui-Innes

Community Board members

and community representatives

from groups including the St

Albans Residents Association

and the local business

association.

The original St Albans Community

Centre was demolished

after being severely damaged in

the earthquakes.

A transitional community

centre provided by Lions Clubs

International Foundation operated

at the Colombo St site from

2012 until last year when it was

moved to MacFarlane Park to be

managed by the Shirley Community

Trust.

Since then, the St Albans

Community Centre has

operated from the St Albans

Tennis Club building in Dover

St, run by the St Albans’ Residents

Association.

Chairwoman Emma Twaddell

said the association is keen to

promote the interests of the diverse

St Albans community and

several local groups are looking

forward to using the new building.

“The need to relocate to temporary,

smaller premises meant

a number of groups had to find

other facilities but most have

indicated their wish to come

back. Our current groups such

as Cranford Pippins, a Steady as

you Go Fall Prevention exercise

group, yoga sessions and youth

theatre groups are all looking

forward to the new centre,” Ms

Twaddell said.

“There will be more activities

available in the new building

which will facilitate a vibrant

and healthy community.”

The detailed design is being

finalised before the city council

apply for building and resource

consents. Once these are

granted, a tendering process

will be carried out before

construction begins.

Car park

struggles at

Nunweek Park

set to ease

•From page 1

She said the car park can now

be filled with members or parents

during the current hockey season.

“On Mondays, Tuesdays,

Wednesdays and Fridays we have

competitions starting at 1.30pm

that run through to the last training

around 9pm,” Ms Trolove

said.

City councillor Aaron Keown

voted against the decision at the

community board meeting.

Cr Keown asked about the

possibility of leaving some parks

unrestricted to prevent parking

struggles from being shifted

elsewhere.

But city council staff said saving

some of the all-day parks for nonrecreational

use was not an option.

This is because it would not

be consistent with the Reserves

Act, which states that a car park

on a recreation reserve is for the

benefit of the park users.

Community board chairman

Sam MacDonald said while Cr

Keown’s concerns were understandable,

the community board

worked through the potential

problem and “recognised there

was still a lot of on-street parking

available.”

Teething problems at new campus

• By Matt Slaughter

OVERCROWDING at the

Shirley Boys’ and Avonside Girls’

high school new site is a concern

for some.

The schools say the 2200

students who started at the QE II

Park site earlier this month are

settling in and conversations to

deal with issues are ongoing.

However, a post on the People’s

Republic of New Brighton

Facebook page asking members

what their children thought

of the school two days after it

opened received more than 100

comments.

Some students had told their

parents overcrowded buses and

narrow hallways had made the

move difficult.

AGHS principal Sue Hume

and SBHS principal John Laurenson

said early challenges were

to be expected, but there was

nothing to worry about.

“To be perfectly honest with

you, on the first few days of

school there was congestion

and we couldn’t allow that to

continue because it would have

been a health and safety issue.

So, it’s not fabricated and we

have to find out a logistical,

organisational solution,” said Mr

Laurenson.

“Of course, there are always

issues with tweaking things and

Boys’ High School and Avonside Girls’ High School new, shared

campus are under way.

finding out how they work best

for everyone, so we’re just working

together to make sure the site

works best for everyone,” Mrs

Hume said.

Some Facebook commenters

said these early issues had made

the first days at the school difficult.

“My daughter said the hallways

are far too narrow and packed

full of kids,” said one commenter.

Mr Laurenson said congestion

had eased somewhat and

meetings to figure out how to

deal with it, particularly when

students made their way to lunch

areas, had already happened.

Options including separating

the two schools’ lunch times had

been considered.

The same commenter said her

daughter had been made to wait

more than an hour for a bus after

two drove past her too full.

Other commenters said students

were struggling to adjust to

the shared nature of the campus.

Mrs Hume admitted adjusting

had been difficult, but said measures

had been taken to deal with

these issues.

“This is new for us all and

we are adjusting to occupying

the same site and sharing some

facilities. The senior teams from

both schools keep in touch with

each other as we work together

to support the co-location and

student access to the shared

spaces. There is some pressure at

break times on some spaces and

we are working together to manage

that.”

She said overcrowding on campus

had eased as the students

had become more familiar with

the site.

Environment Canterbury has

also added another bus and stopping

points to ensure students

could get to and from school

more comfortably, said Mrs

Hume.

Other Facebook commenters

agreed with Mrs Hume, saying

students needed to be patient

and allow time for the schools to

figure out how they could function

best together.

“We are so lucky to have a

wonderful new school in the

area. Being the newbie always

takes time, give it a chance,” said

one.

Mauger’s bid for council

Businessman

joins election

contest

• By Matt Slaughter

WELL-KNOWN businessman

Phil Mauger is making a bid

to win a city council seat in

October’s local body elections.

Mr Mauger, who lives in Avonhead,

has targeted the Burwood

Ward where he will try to unseat

three-time councillor Glenn

Livingstone.

Mr Mauger is head of Maugers

Contracting Ltd, a third-generation

family business that had

its beginnings in North Beach

decades ago.

“It’s time to put my money

where my mouth is so to speak

and actually do it rather than just

sit on the sidelines,” he said.

“I think the council’s crying out

for some people with a little bit

more business acumen to stop

having over-spends on things.”

Lowering rates and progressing

earthquake repairs would be his

main priorities if he was voted in.

“You can’t just keep going

around cranking up people’s

rates.

“Rates increases must be held

to between 2.5 per cent and 3.5

per cent. The current predicted

five per cent increase over the

next 10 years means more money

coming out of households that

are already finding it hard to

make ends meet.

“Much of the earthquake

rebuild still remains ahead of us.

We have not returned to business-as-usual

mode. The remaining

rebuild has to be affordable

for ratepayers, and our rates must

stop rising unnecessarily.”

Mr Mauger, who is standing as

an independent, said his contracting

background would help

in decision-making.

“We only have one chance to

plan a new future for our red

zone land. We are told that $800

million will be spent on this

area over the next 30 years. My

contracting background will

be hugely valuable at the city

council table, ensuring money is

spent wisely and with a common

sense approach to provide a

good outcome for generations to

come.”

Cr Livingstone was elected

in 2010, polling 4848 votes. He

held the seat again in 2013 (6862

votes) and in 2016 (4797 votes).

Said Cr Livingstone: “You also

need a social and environmental

bottom line, so you need a multidimensional

approach.’’

Cr Livingstone believed the fact

he lived in the Burwood Ward,

and Mr Mauger didn’t, would

also be to his advantage.

“If he lives in close proximity,

that might be okay, but that’s quite

some distance. I think they’ll have

a question (voters) over how he is

going to relate to them.”

Said Mr Mauger: “I feel I can

do equally as good for the people

in Burwood by my passion for

the area, my roots for the area.

Living there wouldn’t make any

difference to how well I would

work for Burwood.”

Cr Livingstone said his campaign

would be business as usual.

“I treat every candidate as if I’m

up against Richie McCaw.”

TWO TOILET blocks will be

There are currently only portaloos

It was initially proposed that

each block would have two cubicles

and an outside shower.

But the city council decided to

include three cubicles in the block

suggested future proofing

the services to allow for growth.

To cover the cost of the $95,000

cubicle, the city council have

reduced some of the planned road

Big Apple beckons Burnside actress

• By Jess Gibson

WHEN JACQUELINE Doherty

was 15, she fell in love with acting

and has since set her sights on New

York to check out its booming

theatre scene.

Now, the Burnside 20-year-old

is packing her bags to attend

a 10-week prestigious acting

programme which starts on June 3.

She was

“shocked but

excited” when

she found out

she was selected

to take part in a

course at Stella

Adler Studio of

Acting, where

Robert

De Niro

Robert De Niro

studied before he

became a twotime

Academy Award winner.

He won best supporting actor in

1975 for the role of Vito Corleone

in The Godfather Part II and best

actor for playing Jake LaMotta in

Raging Bull in 1981.

“New York is the hub of theatre,

so I always knew I wanted to go

over at some point . . . but to do an

acting course there is just the best

of both worlds,” Doherty said.

She is looking forward to

developing her acting skills and

hopes the course will give her an

idea of where she will go next in

her career.

Doherty usually sticks to musical

theatre, but said this will help her

to “branch out into all different

types of acting.”

“My main goal is to perform

professionally in whatever way

that might be. I’m using this

opportunity to see what it brings

out of me and where it will take

me,” Doherty said.

She started acting as a hobby

when she was 11-years-old and

started to pursue it more seriously

throughout her years at Burnside

High School.

“As I went through high

school I was doing a lot of music.

Eventually, my love for music

turned into a love for musical

theatre,” she said.

Her most challenging

performances were in Les

Misérables last year and Spring

Awakening in 2017, which inspired

her to work harder and develop as

an actor.

“Those two performances were

the most memorable moments of

what made me want to keep going

with this,” she said.

Doherty has been saving money

for the trip through her job as a law

secretary. She also received a $3000

grant from the Inspire Foundation,

which is a charity dedicated

to supporting Canterbury and

Marlborough’s young talent.

CURTAIN CALL: Jacqueline Doherty will soon receive top

training at Stella Adler Studio of acting in New York, where

Robert De Niro studied before launching into a successful

acting career.

Readers respond to

the article about the

Harewood, Breens and

Gardiners Rds intersection,

which is currently out for

consultation

Barbara Purvis - The option

for left-turn only from Breens

and Gardiners Rds is hazardous

and unnecessarily complicated.

For example, it would require vehicles

wanting to go into Breens

Rd from Gardiners Rd not only

to go quickly from Gardiners Rd

into the right-hand lane and the

right turning bay on Harewood

Rd, but then to cross hard left

across two lanes of Harewood

Rd traffic to do a left-turn into

Breens Rd. Given vehicles won’t

be able to move until both lanes

are clear, there is potential for

bottlenecks at the right-turning

lanes where there is not really a

lot of room for vehicles to queue

compared to the safe queuing

zone that currently exists by

waiting in Breens and Gardiners

Rds as they are laid out now.

Traffic lights are a sensible option.

If there can be 19-plus sets

of lights at the intersection of

High and Tuam Sts, there can

surely be lights at this dangerous

intersection. After all, the city

council found the money for

lights opposite the Papanui Club

on Sawyers Arms Rd, where

there is no intersection and only

one lane of traffic in each direction.

It seems to me that putting

in lights, as many local ratepayers

Fujitsu’s Catechin Filters are

approved by the Asthma and

Respiratory Foundation NZ’s

Sensitive Choice ® programme.

SAFETY UPGRADE: More than 400 submissions have been

sent into the city council on the Harewood, Breens and

Gardiners Rds intersection.

have wanted, would be the sensible

way forward.

Helen Redmond - Lights

are, in my opinion, by far the correct

way to make the intersection

on Gardiners, Harewood and

Breens Rds operate. Option one is

a load of nonsense. Lights, please.

I am a Northwood resident and

I use the intersection in question

everyday. There has been a lot

of talk, obviously, it’s all down to

costs.

Marg Sanders - What a

ridiculous scenario option one

would result in. Imagine a busonly

right-turn bay that won’t be

used by cars wanting to turn and

the accidents this could cause.

This council is nuts. Why don’t

they listen to the people who

put them there for a change?

The same scenario happened in

Shirley and now instead of a nice

simple picnic table and seats,

they have an expensive ping

pong table and no seats. Traffic

lights are the only way to go. I use

this intersection and that is my

opinion.

In your

neighbourhood

Traditional and natural –

Rawleigh’s for your family and your home

Rawleigh’s know that when

something is not broken, it

just doesn’t need fixing. They

have been manufacturing

natural medicinal products for

over a century and because their

medicated ointment and salve

are so effective they have pretty

much kept to W T Rawleigh’s

original formula from back in 1889.

That is not to say they do not

move with the times. Having begun

with the salve and ointment that

so many New Zealanders grew up

with, the product range has evolved

and increased to include other

medicinals, nutritional, personal

care and home care products. The

medicinals are go-to’s for any home

first aid kit with antiseptic creams for

abraisions, products to help with the

symptoms of colds, and rubs for after

rugby and netball in these cold winter

months.

The expanded range of personal

care items includes high-quality hair,

skin and bath products, all from the

best possible natural ingredients. And

that same quality applies to keeping your

home hygienic too, with everything from

concentrated multi-surface cleaner and

laundry power to pet shampoo and moss

killer.

Traditionally, a team of independent

distributors has been responsible for bringing

these items into our homes, helping keep

prices affordable. One of these is Fiona

Head. Based in Harewood, she moved to

Christchurch from the Hawke’s Bay area four

years ago and has spent the last two year as

a Rawleigh’s distributor and, she says, she’s

“really loving it.” She remembers Rawleigh’s

in the house as a child, rediscovered it for

herself and an adult and has not looked

back since. Her customers benefit from her

friendly welcome and in-depth knowledge of

the products. She can explain what they do

and which one is best for any given situation.

Fiona is available every weekday afternoon

and right through the weekends, and with

almost all products in stock, there’s usually

no waiting for a delivery.

Contact her on 03 550 1544 or

022 086 7300. Visit us at 283 Wooldridge

Road, Harewood and meet your local

Unique approach

to helping kids thrive!

For parents that have children struggling

with anxiety, depression, behavioural

issues, or in fact, anything that is troubling

them or causing disruption to family life, it

can sometimes seem that no-one can help

and nothing works.

Amanda Staniford, founder and

director of Kids Life Academy, says many

parents come to her with issues like these,

desperate to get help for their children,

which they haven’t found anywhere else.

Providing that help is the purpose of Kids

Life Academy, and is Amanda’s passion.

Drawing on her diverse background and

experience in education, including special

needs, emotional intelligence, drama

teaching, neuro linguistic programming,

educational kinesiology and life coaching,

Amanda began developing Kids Life

Academy five years ago.

She has created programmes for

primary-age children (Rock Solid Kids)

and pre-school children (Little Pebbles).

Teens have access to Amanda’s expertise

via group or individual coaching sessions.

“I have a different approach, which is

holistic and unique. For me the three

keys to helping children overcome any

problems are imagination, visualisation

and belief.”

“The real magic wand is the child’s

own mind.” - Jose Ortega Y Gasset

The weekly classes are based on a term

theme, which caters for the immediate

needs of the students enrolled.

“The children have a lot of fun, and

are encouraged to use their imagination

through drama. The drama platform

allows children to explore their thoughts

and feelings in a supported and safe

environment,” Amanda says.

“It allows me to understand their

particular issues and help them develop the

skills and techniques to overcome them.

“They also have a journal that they

use to record what they are ‘happy and

grateful’ for each week and this is shared

at the beginning of each lesson.

“Each child is a treasured member of

our KLA family and as such I place a great

deal of importance on communication

with parents.”

Another aspect of Amanda’s work,

which can be very helpful for some

families, is the kids coaching sessions.

Amanda is currently taking bookings

and enrolments for next term, with classes

being held after school on Mondays at the

Waimairi Community Centre. Numbers

are limited to 16 per class, to ensure

the children get maximum benefit from

the programme.

For enrolments, or any further

information, contact Amanda

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior

clients visit complaining of pain in one or

both hips.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a

back muscle could also be the cause, as

shown in the image.

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

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

and wellbeing.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the hip, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the hip in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

Back hip muscle that causes hip pain

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Centuries old folk

remedy supports

good health!

More health

benefits with

Advanced

Omega-3-PC

Fish Oil

It is well known how important omega-3 fatty acids are to good

health. It is estimated most people don’t even get a third of the

recommended omega-3 fatty acids on a weekly basis. Countries with

a higher amounts of omega-3 in the diet are known to have lower

cardiovascular disease and in many cases better overall health. Recent

research has shown inflammation to be a big part of disease and the

ageing process. Fish oil can help reduce inflammation by providing

essential fatty acids required by the body to heal itself and maintain

good health. Fish oil supplements have become hugely popular

for this reason. Until now most fish oil only contained omega-3

fatty acids in triglyceride form. Fish however naturally contain

omega-3 in triglyceride and phospholipid form but until recently the

phospholipid form was lost due to the manufacturing process.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-3-PC sets new standards in fish oil as

it contains omega-3 attached to both triglycerides and phospholipids.

Studies have shown GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC to be far better

absorbed leading to increased levels of vital omega-3 fatty acids in the

organs thru giving the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-3-PC is produced from fresh wild

deep sea cold water fish using a new advanced and more natural cold

extraction process that better preserves the natural nutrient profile

found in fish. It is manufactured to high GMP standards and is

molecularly distilled to remove any containments, toxins and heavy

metals like mercury.

Further information on this revolutionary new fish oil and how

it may benefit you is available from the Natural Health Advisers,

at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are always happy to help!

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 and 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. Also when used at

the onset of complaints such as the common cold,

sinusitis, asthmatic attacks, hay fever and childhood

diseases such as chicken pox and measles, was

accompanied by an improvement in the condition

with symptoms either disappearing or the

conditions were extremely mild and soon over.

More recent research on ACV has shown it to be

highly effective at controlling blood sugar levels.

Elevated blood sugar is associated not only with

diabetes, but with numerous health problems

from premature aging to multiple chronic

diseases. In a study published in Diabetes Care

Journal, ACV improved insulin sensitivity during

high-carb meals by 19-34% and significantly

lowered blood glucose and insulin responses.

Another Japanese study found ACV can help you

feel fuller, eat less and lose weight. Participants

in the 12 week study were found to have reduced

waist circumference and lower triglyceride levels

therefore reducing their cardiovascular risk levels.

Another observational study conducted by Harvard

showed that women who ate salad dressings with

ACV had a reduced risk of heart disease.

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all the

goodness of the apple in a form that is readily

accepted by the body. Scientists have found over

90 different substances in ACV, among them 20

important trace elements, minerals and essential

enzymes. A scientific study at the Shizuka

University in Japan has proven ACV to have potent

antioxidant benefits (It can destroy free radicals,

which are a major factor in ageing.) and also the

ACV can break down cholesterol formations in the

blood vessels.

Good 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

well-functioning 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 and 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.

NOT all FISH OIl IS CreaTed eQUal!

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

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

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

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

for your home

Are you struggling with the heat of

Summer or wanting to get organised for

Winter? With the ever changing weather

patterns, heat pumps have the flexibility

of being able to heat and cool which is an

advantage no other appliance can offer. This

represents great value for your investment

as you can use it all year round. The team

at Enviro Master Ltd can help keep you

cool this Summer either at home or work.

Enviro Master supplies, installs and services

all the leading brands including Panasonic,

Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means

our team can show you which system and

brand will best suit your needs.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,

now is a great time to beat the 1st of

July deadline. Inadequate heating and

ventilation can lead to mould growth and

dampness in your property, leading to

costlier maintenance and an unhealthy

living environment. Providing a fixed

heater with a higher heat output and lower

running costs, like a heat pump, will enable

your tenants to heat the area effectively.

It will also discourage them from using

unflued gas heaters which can make a

house damp and mouldy.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for

any repair or damage caused to the system

due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s

five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration

how it will best meet their needs.

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

and by gathering signatures from

“One of the roles of a community

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”
