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

Livingstone

Authorised by Hon Megan Woods, Shop 6, McCathy St, Christchurch

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.”

AN INTERESTING political move from

one of the city’s best known businessmen

(see page 1).

Phil Mauger, who lives in Avonhead,

has his sights set on the east – incumbent

Glenn Livingstone’s Burwood Ward council

seat. 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 lives

out west.

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.

Projects to improve bus service

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PEAK TIME traffic is causing

buses travelling on Halswell

and Lincoln Rds to run behind

schedule.

But residents relying on the

transport system may have to

wait until 2021 for the problem

to be resolved.

THe Orange Line and No. 60

bus running behind schedule

as a result of

busy traffic has

been raised by

the Halswell

Residents’

Association.

In a

submission

David Hawke

to the city

council’s

Annual Plan, the association

has thrown its support behind

several public transport projects

proposed in the draft Annual

Plan 2019-2020 to help reduce

the problem.

City-wide projects include bus

priority electronic installations

delivery project, and public

transport ITS installations.

They will provide real-time

travel information to passengers

waiting at bus stops including

those at Halswell.

THe projects are anticipated to

be undertaken over the next two

to three years.

DELAY: The Halswell Residents’ Association says the Orange

Line often runs behind schedule at peak traffic times.

THe association’s secretary

David Hawke said making the

buses faster and more predictable

has three components.

“One of these is bus priority

lanes, another is passengers

knowing exactly when their bus

will arrive, and the remaining

component is speeding the

transit of buses by giving

them priority at signalised

intersections,” he said.

Since the start of the year,

Environment Canterbury has

received four complaints over the

timeliness of the Orange Line

and 60 routes.

Mr Hawke said the two

projects complement the city

council’s $13 million plans to

widen Lincoln Rd between

Curletts and Wrights Rds. The

project is planned to begin in

2020/21 financial year.

An Environment Canterbury

spokeswoman said the Lincoln

Rd project will improve

travel times for Orange Line

passengers.

“We supported that project

and it is part of an ongoing

process. We need to get public

transport priorities all the way

from Halswell right through to

the central city.”

Halswell Community Project

chairwoman Chrys Horn said

the buses are generally full at

rush hour and it would be good

to see bus lanes installed in

Halswell.

“THere are no bus lanes here

and because we have grown so

fast, we have got a lot of traffic

going into the city,” she said.

Dr Horn said she prefers to

cycle, but when she has used

the buses, there have been times

when they have not run on

schedule.

Last year, a Ministry of

Transport survey found public

transport in the city was the

lowest in the country with nearly

two-thirds of its population

choosing to avoid the bus.

From January 2017 to

January 2018, it was found

only 35 per cent of people used

buses.

“We need to be quite bold in

setting it up because we have got

one of the lowest public transport

user numbers of any place in New

Zealand,” Dr Horn said.

But an ECan spokeswoman

said for the current financial

year, patronage is up 1.5 per cent.

She said this could be due to

more people travelling to and

from the city.

SCHOOL BUS PARKING

School bus parking will be

created on Riccarton Rd near

Kirkwood Intermediate School

to improve the safety and

convenience of school buses

picking up pupils. The Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board approved installing

“school buses only” parking

restrictions.

NEW HOME FOR GECKOS

More native geckos have been

given a new home in Riccarton

Bush. Last month Dr Graham

Ussher and his team from RMA

Ecology safely captured waitaha

geckos from the Gollans Bay

quarry, beside Lyttelton Port, and

released them in Riccarton Bush.

The eastern part of the Gollans

Bay quarry has not been quarried

before and is being used as part

of the Lyttelton Port Company’s

Te Awaparahi Bay reclamation

project. A similar release of

geckos was carried out in 2012 as

part of the Sumner Rd recovery

project.

Less trees

for middle of

Riccarton Rd

A PLANNED tree-planted

median strip in Riccarton Rd will

be shortened and have fewer trees

to ensure there are no barriers for

emergency services.

The median island will run

between Clarence and Matipo

Sts and is part of a project to

replace and upgrade outdated

underground pipes and rebuild

the road to accommodate bus

priority measures between

Harakeke and Matipo Sts.

City council transport planning

and delivery manager Lynette

Ellis said the adjustments will

ensure that the median island is

easier to negotiate for emergency

services.

The median will help make

Riccarton Rd a pedestrianfriendly

destination for shoppers

and visitors, with streetscape

enhancements and trees creating

a traffic calming effect.

The trees will remain through

the central shopping area of

Riccarton Rd.

However, there will be 10 fewer

trees than originally planned at

the outer edges of the project and

around intersections.

Work on the median strip

is expected to start in April

2020.

Call for policy after bottle store fight

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A LONG battle to stop an

off-licence liquor store from

going into Halswell has raised

questions over why the city

doesn’t have its own Local

Alcohol Policy.

THe Halswell Residents’

Association has requested the

city council develops its LAP

policy after appealing against

the decision allowing Bottle-O

Halswell to open a store at 29

Ensign St.

THe association’s secretary

David Hawke said the drawnout

process has highlighted

“significant deficiencies” in

alcohol inspectors and the

knowledge base of agencies and

district licensing committee

members.

“THe alcohol licensing

managers and their staff are

forced to rely on the general

provision of the Sale and Supply

of Alcohol Act 2012 in framing

their recommendations on each

licence application.”

Mr Hawke said the act is very

high level and the objectors have

no real guidance as to whether

they are wasting their time

or if they have a chance in a

successful appeal.

“THe same is true of potential

applicants, they have only the act

TIRED: A fight to stop an off-licence liquor store from opening

in Halswell has a residents’ association questioning why the

city doesn’t have a Local Alcohol Policy. ​

to guide them in preparing their

business case,” he said.

THe city council began

developing a draft LAP in 2013

but decided not to continue with

the process last year.

City council’s head of strategic

policy Emma Davis said it

instead resolved background

work on the issue including

identifying any alcohol-related

harm issues should continue.

THis information will form a

report which will be provided

in the new term following the

October elections which will

determine if a LAP is the best

tool to address alcohol-related

harm.

In December, Bottle-O

Halswell Ltd was granted an

application to open the store, but

the decision was appealed by the

association.

THe hearing for the appeal will

be held on July 30.

In March, Western News

reported Bottle-O Halswell Ltd

was negotiating to lease the

premises on 29 Ensign St instead

of buying it.

Director and shareholder

Wendy Gibbons did not respond

to confirm if it would be leasing

the premises.

Mr Hawke said the appeal

against the bottle store had

forced the association to be sidelined

from doing other projects

in the community since August

last year.

“It is more than time as well.

It is people’s headspace. It has

had a major effect on us that’s for

sure,” he said.

Under The Sale and Supply

of Alcohol Act 2012, a LAP can

allow for communities to limit

the locations of licences in areas

or near certain types of facilities

such as schools or churches.

Conditions can be imposed

on groups of licences, such as a

“one-way door” condition which

allows patrons to leave premises

but not enter or re-enter after a

certain time.

Fresh ideas for residents’ association

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

JOHN REDDIFORD knew

nothing about the Ilam and

Upper Riccarton Residents’

Association before he was

appointed chairman.

He even jokes he was appointed

in “quite a controversial

manner” as he lives out of the

zone resident associations’ zone

on Hamilton Ave.

But after being asked by former

chairwoman Sue Chamberlain

if he was interested in the

role, he was prompted to take up

the opportunity.

But Mr Reddiford, an investment

adviser, is passionate about

the Ilam/Upper Riccarton area

with hopes it can be turned into a

social centre for the community.

“We don’t have many places to

eat or drink. I’d like to see a bit

of a centre for the area,” he said.

His first meeting will be on

Wednesday where he wants to

set goals with the association on

what they want to achieve and

how they will achieve them.

With his office based in St

Albans, Mr Reddiford takes

inspiration from the area.

He said it has strong community

initiatives such as The

St Albans Pavilion and Pool Inc

fundraising for the new Edgeware

swimming pool.

INSPIRATION: John

Reddiford, the new

chairman of the Ilam

and Upper Riccarton

Residents’ Association

wants to have a close

relationship with

Canterbury University.

“I just want to see it become

like certain areas – like Merivale

has got Merivale Mall. That we

can put on things for our residents

– events they can go to.

“At the end of the year, we will

have the Ngaio Marsh Theatre. I

want people to say I live in Ilam

and I am proud of it,” Mr Reddiford

said.

Although he has only lived

in the Ilam area for about two

years, he has had a long association

with Canterbury University.

In 1972 he studied history,

economics and management

there. Between 2010 to last year,

he was the president of the university’s

alumni.

Mr Reddiford will attend his

first meeting next month to start

planning for university’s 150th

anniversary in 2023.

“We have got to have a close

relationship with the university

because there are 16,000 students

there,” he said.

Mr Reddiford has a strong background

in business having worked

for a range of companies including

as an area sales manager for NZI

Life, a national sales manager at

Fidelity Life Assurance Company

Ltd and is the co-chairman of

Planet Financial Ltd.

When asked by Western News

if he would consider putting his

name forward for the upcoming

elections, Mr Reddiford said he

had “never thought of it.”

“All I want to do is make sure

Christchurch is getting back on

its feet rather than being known

in London or New York for

earthquakes and people killing

each other,” he said.

Mrs Chamberlain said he lives

in Ilam and has a great interest

in supporting the community.

“I think he has got a great

rapport with the people and is a

great leader. He has got leadership

skills, I think that is what

residents need,” she said.

Mauger to stand

for council

•From page 1

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.”

In 2015, Mr Mauger was

seriously injured on his way to

compete in the Bathurst 12 Hour

race in New South Wales when his

rental car was rear-ended by a fuel

tanker.

He suffered multiple fractures

and a collapsed lung and was in a

coma for three days.

Time for council to focus on Avonhead

Avonhead

Community

Group

chairman

Somnath

Sarkar

Bagchi writes

about the

need for the

city council to invest in the

suburb

When we shifted to Avonhead

from Fendalton in 2004, it was a

suburb with character.

Part rural, part residential, it

drew families with school-going

children like my own because

of its proximity to good public

schools and convenient traveltime

to the city centre.

The majority of our neighbours

were friendly, retired

couples.

Avonhead was no Fendalton

or Merivale but it was diverse

and had a sense of pride.

The roads were well surfaced,

the street gutters clean of leaves,

the parks regularly mowed.

Avonhead Mall was the main

establishment, with Monteith’s

Brewery Bar as its busy drawcard.

Cafe Euro came up in the mid-

2000s and became a fixture for

semi-social meetings.

WAITING: Avonhead Community Group chairman Somnath

Sarkar Bagchi said the long-planned sporting facility for

Avonhead Park, which backs onto the cemetery, remains

indefinitely on hold.

Fast track to 2019 and Avonhead

has lost that vibe of being a

suburb that takes pride in itself.

The mall looks tired and has

one or two empty retail spaces.

Monteith’s is still going strong

but Cafe Euro has been closed

for several months with silence

hovering over its future.

The semi-rural character is

gone, a sprawling retirement

village takes up what used to be

former pasture land.

The earthquakes have not

been kind to the pavements.

The street gutters are now leafstrewn

and many patches of the

roadside get surface flooding.

It sometimes takes time for the

lawns to be mown.

Many of the elderly couples

whom we knew when we first

moved in have either passed

away or shifted to retirement

villages.

Some of these changes are the

inevitable result of time.

Others are not.

The city council’s spending

priorities changed understandably

after the 2010 and 2011

earthquakes.

Avonhead, which was fortunate

to have escaped relatively

unscathed, dropped out of the

city council’s list of areas to

focus on.

No one can complain that this

was the case for the first five or

six years after the earthquakes.

Eight years on, however, it

increasingly feels like the city

council has taken Avonhead for

granted.

Other suburbs have got new

roads and malls while Avonhead

has got patchwork repairs.

The long-planned sporting

facility for Avonhead Park remains

indefinitely on hold.

The efforts to take care of the

suburb and its heritage, namely

the cemetery, have come mainly

from the local community

group.

When can residents expect the

city council to focus its attention

back to Avonhead?

WESTERN NEWS

Readers respond to the

Western News article on

Hornby’s traffic woes

Deb Flanagan – Wait until

you get another 1500 gravel truck

movements a day choking up

the State Highway 1 from Fulton

Hogan’s proposed new quarry.

And the motorway extension is

being overrated. People travelling

in from Rolleston heading for

city centre or Riccarton will still

go via Hornby as they won’t want

to be stuck in the increasing

traffic jam in Sydenham

including all the big trucks heading

to port.

Jo-Anne Clark – They need

to put a right-turn light on the

northbound lights at the Main

South Rd and Carmen Rd intersection.

Just like they have on the

other three lights there.

Heather Wilkins – It doesn’t

help that at the lights there aren’t

always separate turning lanes.

Where there are turning lanes,

they all need to turn like they do

at the main set at Shands Rd and

Main South Rd. That would help

speed the traffic up. The Buchanans/Carmen

Rds lights don’t. The

right turning light onto Carmen

Rd from the Pound Rd end of

Buchanans Rd, turns green at the

same time as the through traffic.

Then you are lucky to get one car

through.

FUNDRAISER: Hornby High School teacher Juliet Buenaventura

and her band performing a Filipino song.

Concert for a cause

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SCHOOLS

HORNBY HIGH School has

showcased its brightest talent to

help fundraise for those impacted

by the Christchurch terror

attacks.

The concert, organised by the

school’s team of prefects has

raised more than $530.

The money will go towards

supporting the family of the

Springs Rd Dairy, an affected

family at the school and for a

man who works at GAS Hornby.

Prefect Shardey Jade, 17, said it

wanted to show how important it

was to bring the school together

to support those affected.

“Every term we have made a

goal to run events. Our goal was

to arrange a fundraiser so we

could bring the Hornby community

together,” she said.

The Hornby community was

hugely affected by the attacks.

The owner of the Springs Rd

Dairy, Junaid Ismail died at Majhid

Al Noor on March 15.

A father of a student at Hornby

High School and a man who

works at GAS Hornby was injured

during the attacks.

About 100 people including the

performers attended the event.

The concert featured 14 acts

including performances from the

school choir Voices With Soul,

guitar and vocal soloists and

group numbers from the school’s

staff.

Miss Jade said the school does

not yet have the full total yet for

the fundraiser with donations

still yet to come in from several

teachers who were unable to attend

the concert.

Principal Robin Sutton said it

was an amazing event and speaks

so much for the leadership, heart

and passion the students have.

Speaker stolen from school

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AN OUTDOOR speaker stolen

from South Hornby School may

have been built into a bicycle’s

sound system.

Police are continuing to follow

up on the theft of a speaker from

the primary school on May 5 at

11.43pm.

Three young men were caught

on CCTV footage at the time of

the incident.

Principal Wendy Huriwai said

it was from talking to police she

learnt it was likely the speaker

was stolen to mount onto a bicycle

to create into a sound system.

Three panel sheets were damaged

in total and two outdoor

speakers will have to be replaced

after an unsuccessful attempt

was made to steal a second

speaker.

The attempt damaged the second

speaker beyond repair.

Mrs Huriwai said it is “extremely

disappointing” as the

money going towards repairing

the damage cannot be spent on

other projects in the school.

The school did not yet have an

estimation on what the cost of

installing the new speakers and

repairing the panels would be.

Last year police were investigating

a spate of thefts of

outdoor speakers from schools

across the city after 19 were stolen

in the space of a month.

Mrs Huriwai said: “We have

a beautiful school which is well

resourced to help our tamariki

hard to provide the best for our

children but unfortunately, some

young men feel their need is

Wall on the radar for

national baseball honours

• By Jacob Page

MULTI-TALENTED Selwyn

baseballer Te Ahu Wall is

starting to turn heads on a

national level.

The 16-year-old who can pitch,

hit and play the outfield was a

nominee for New Zealand Baseball

under-19 player of the year at

the annual awards a fortnight ago.

While he did not win it, the

Canterbury age-group representative

hoped it could lead to

him being part of more national

teams.

Te Ahu, who lives in Rolleston

and attends St Thomas’ of Canterbury

where he plays flanker in

the second XV during the winter

months, said his nomination

came as a shock.

“I was surprised to be up for

the award but it was an honour,’’

he said.

Te Ahu made the Canterbury

under-19 team and won the Canterbury

senior baseball competition

with Selwyn and was part of

his club’s under-19 team which

finished fourth in the country

two months.

Te Ahu said he preferred to

play centre field and believed his

hitting had been the aspect of his

game which had improved the

most over the past 12 months.

“I’ve been getting more contact

and hitting the ball harder.

ACTION: Selwyn baseballer Te Ahu Wall can play three

positions in the field and has a promising future ahead of him. ​

“I like getting a pitch I can hit

as soon as I see it.

“My throwing from the outfield

has improved and become

more accurate,” he said.

He said winning the Canterbury

title with Selwyn was a

highlight.

Te Ahu, who was 13 when he

started playing baseball with his

WESTERN NEWS

friends, said he also plays softball

when he can and he just enjoyed

playing both games in the summer.

Te Ahu said he watched a lot

of Major League Baseball and he

liked watching Boston Red Sox

outfielder Mookie Betts.

“The aim for me is to be part of

a national team.’’

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

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.

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

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

so customers have an understanding on

how it will best meet their needs.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

Only eight submi sions were

The district council wi l be

A hearing i scheduled to be

The bylaw comes as an increasing

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

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

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

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

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this week.

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.”
