WHEN ELWYN Judson’s

family asked him what he

wanted for his 90th birthday,

he simply replied: “Well . . . a

parachute jump.”

Going into free fall – at 90

MILESTONE: Elwyn Judson took the biggest leap of his life for his 90th birthday, when he jumped 9000ft from a plane over

Ashburton with instructor Dakota Keen.

The Casebrook resident

launched out of a plane from

9000ft in a tandem skydive

over Ashburton to celebrate the

milestone on May 25.

In spite of a broken back and

hip replacement last year, Mr

Judson felt no nerves at any

moment during his experience

– he even remained calm

during his 30sec free fall.

Mr Judson loves sport and

still gets out regularly to play

outdoor bowls, but the retired

carpet layer said the skydive

was his first time doing

anything so extreme.

“It’s something that I’d had

on my bucket list for some

time,” said Mr Judson.

Older cars

being

targeted

by thieves

• By Jess Gibson

THIEVES ARE targeting older

vehicles in Burnside, Bishopdale

and Redwood.

Police have warned residents to

be vigilant after an increase

in vehicle thefts and break-ins,

particularly Nissans, Subarus and

Mazdas.

Bishopdale resident Paul Harre’s

1999 Nissan Primera station

wagon was written off after an

attempted theft last Sunday.

Mr Harre parked the vehicle on

the road outside his house to clear

some room while he worked on

his fence.

A few mornings later, he

discovered its windows had been

smashed, the ignition and steering

lock had been damaged and the

locks had been drilled on both

doors. As the vehicle had more

than $2500 in damage, it was

written off.

“We generally don’t leave our

car on the road. The fact that

the one time we did we had this

outcome, it does make me wonder

whether it’s more common than

we think.”

Detective Senior Sergeant

Neville Jenkins said a lot of

vehicle thefts and break-ins took

place due to a lack of security.

THAT’S ONE plucky sort of a fella on page

1 today.

I’m referring to 90-year-old Elwyn Judson

who took a parachute jump to mark his 90th

birthday.

He said he had no nerves and remained calm during the

tandem skydive. I guess you don’t know how you are going to feel

when you do something like this, until you actually do it. The

hard part, I suspect, is waiting in the plane for the signal that it is

time to jump.

Better him than me.

Elwyn says the free fall was his favourite part of the experience.

“You don’t feel as if you’re moving at all, it feels as if you are

floating.”

Well done Elwyn.

War of words over ping pong table

• By Jess Gibson

A CONTENTIOUS $4675

ping pong table has caused

more controversy in local body

politics.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member John Stringer

walked out of the board’s recent

meeting over the issue.

He claims it

was because

chairwoman

Ali Jones

wrongfully cut

him off when

John Stringer

Ali Jones

he asked if the

board could

revisit the

installation of

the table at 10

Shirley Rd.

It is a claim

not supported

by city councillor

Mike

Davidson.

Ms Jones warned Mr Stringer

he would be removed from the

meeting when he told her not

to interrupt him, after which he

stood up and decided to leave.

But Cr Davidson said the way

Ms Jones spoke during the incident

was “very appropriate.”

“A board meeting is a formal

meeting and there is a formal

procedure.”

“The chair has the job of controlling

meetings.”

In April, the community

board voted 3-2 for the concrete

table, which will cost $3175 and

$1500 for installation. It will be

used for multiple purposes –

including ping pong.

The move came after

Richmond resident Jennifer

Dalziel raised concerns over

a lack of seating at the Shirley

Rd site and requested that the

board investigate seats, as well

as a table.

Mr Stringer voted against

the decision at the time as he

believed it was too expensive

and it meant seating would need

to go back to the city council for

investigation. Cr Davidson also

voted against the purchase of

the table.

Mr Stringer said he attempted

to make a point at the recent

board meeting after the subject

of seating came up.

He said there was a

discussion about seating being

added at no cost and also the

possibility of seating not being

added at all.

“I was just asking a question

about the procedure and Ms

Jones cut me off.”

But Cr Davidson said, “at

the end of the day, it was Mr

Stringer’s decision to walk out.”

Cr Davidson said it was the

tone of Mr Stringer’s voice towards

Ms Jones that prompted

her to warn him about being

removed, rather than the discussion

itself.

“If Ms Jones asks a member

to stop speaking, it’s actually

really appropriate for them to

actually stop speaking and not

be disrespectful.”

“It creates a poor environment

and can sometimes hamper

really good decision making.

It’s important for us to be a really

adhesive team because we

are trying to do this in the best

interest of the community,” said

Cr Davidson.

Nor’West News contacted Ms

Jones for comment and said she

did not want to get involved in

the “he said, she said.”

“I’m not letting it distract

from our work on the board.”

In December, Nor’West News

reported that the board was

embroiled in a code of conduct

issue.

The city council and the community

board refused to release

details about what board member

or members were involved.

But Nor’West News understood

there was ongoing tension

between Ms Jones and Mr

Stringer at the time.

Head of community support

John Filsell said the code of

conduct investigation is not yet

complete.

Oversight

in skate

park project

• By Jess Gibson

THE PAPANUI-Innes

Community Board has requested

better oversight of the St Albans

skate park extension project.

The city council has been working

with 16 students from St Albans

School to revamp the current

skate park.

The community board expressed

its disappointment to the city

council over a lack of information

and oversight of the project to date.

City councillor Mike Davidson

said the board lost visibility of the

project because it was part of a line

item in the Long Term Plan which

included a range of projects, rather

than an individual item.

“It became invisible to us –

which is of concern.”

“As a board, we were finding out

a lot of information through the

council’s Newsline articles rather

than being informed first. At the

moment we’re just not getting told

things,” Cr Davidson said.

“In terms of moving forward,

it’s about making sure that the

community board are more

involved in terms of the whole

process of what is happening and

where it is at.”

•From page 1

“It was just something that

cropped up.”

His son, Andrew Judson, said

he organised the skydive with

initial “apprehension.”

“I said to him that I would

pay for it but that he had to get

checked out by the doctor first.

He went straight in and got his

clearance,” said Andrew.

Mr Judson said the feeling

of free falling was his favourite

part of the skydive.

“You don’t feel as if you’re

moving at all, It feels as if you

are floating,” said Mr Judson.

He said when the parachute

was pulled, it gave him a chance

to take in the “brilliant” view

of “all the ocean and the mountains”

below him.

About 20 family members

waited to congratulate Mr

Judson at the base of Skydiving

Kiwis as he came down to land.

“They were all surprised I

actually did it,” said Mr Judson.

One of the family members

was his 94-year-old sister who

flew down from Auckland

for the first time since before

the earthquakes to watch her

brother take the plunge.

“It was really great to have her

down here for it,” said Mr Judson.

He said he had “never met a

friendlier bunch of people” than

the team at Skydiving Kiwis.

His instructor, Dakota Keen,

said the entire skydive “flowed

really nicely.”

“I was a bit nervous at the

start because he has had a

couple of health issues but we

saw through them and he did

everything he was asked to do.”

Mr Judson was the oldest

person Mr Keen had ever been

in a tandem with.

“It was amazing, it was a great

honour for me,” he said.

As far as the next item on Mr

Judson’s bucket list goes, he said

he is just focussed on reaching

his next birthday.

But he does have one ultimate

goal – which is to do another

skydive when he gets to his

100th birthday.

WITH JUST under a week

left to make a submission, the

Harewood, Breens and Gardiners

Rds intersection has already

gained more feedback than most

issues over the past 12 months.

On Friday, the city council had

received 808 submissions on two

options to improve safety at the

intersection.

This is the second highest

number of submissions received

during public consultation over

the last year. The highest was for

the Akaroa Community Health

Trust targeted rate proposal,

which gained 815 submissions

from February 25 to March 27.

Option one, which is the city

council’s preferred choice, is

to make Gardiners and Breens

Rds left-turn in and left-turn

out only, by closing the median

on Harewood Rd. Option two

is to install traffic lights at the

intersection.

Consultation has been open for

three weeks. The closing date for

submissions is June 10.

The intersection proposal

has also overtaken the 739

submissions received on the

review of speed limits in the

southern central city from

August 14 to September 4

It also passed the 647

submissions received between

January 25 and April 3 on the

South Express Major Cycle

Route.

City councillor Aaron Keown,

who has been campaigning for

traffic lights at the intersection

for three years, held a public

Sylvester spends his 21st in hospital

• By Jess Gibson

SYLVESTER THE cat enjoyed

a hearty salmon dish at the

Canterbury Charity Hospital in

Bishopdale to celebrate turning

21 last week.

The shorthaired tomcat has two

children’s books published about

him, which are sold to fundraise

money for the hospital, which

does not receive any Government

funding and relies on donations

and grants.

The hospital provides free

elective day surgery, medical

outpatient clinics, dentistry and

counselling for people who can

not access the public or private

healthcare systems.

Sylvester - The Charity Hospital

Cat, published in 2014, and

Sylvester and the Intruder,

published in 2017, were written

by poet Julie Hutton and feature

illustrations by Garrick Tremain.

Sylvester and the Intruder was

written about a period of time

when Sylvester would trigger the

alarms at 2am and have security

called to the hospital.

Fundraising co-ordinator

Rosemary Graham was unsure

how much money the books

had raised, but they had been

popular.

Ms Graham said Sylvester is

“very affectionate” and “loves

attention”. He is ironically a “bit

grumpy” around children.

She said Sylvester is in good

health as he is always well looked

after by hospital staff. He likes

to have the heater on and his fur

is groomed with a special brush

every morning.

Sylvester has not lived at the

hospital since birth – in fact, he

is older than the hospital itself,

which was established in 2007.

Sylvester belonged to the

neighbours before they sold their

property to the hospital in 2016.

Ms Graham said the staff were

asked if they would like to keep

him, as he would “visit all the

time anyway.”

AA calls for

right-turn

light at

congested

intersection

• By Jess Gibson

THE NEW Zealand

Automobile Association has

called for a right-turn traffic

light arrow at the Greers Rd and

Memorial Ave intersection.

The AA made the request in

a letter sent to the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board.

Southern regional

administrator Carla Pereira said

the idea had been raised with

the city council in the past “to

no effect.”

The AA conveyed its

disappointment an arrow

was not included in the

city council’s review of the

intersection in March, which

proposed a shared left-turn

traffic lane, combined with a

cycle lane. The proposal, which

was voted down by the board,

was meant to ease traffic at the

intersection, which is heavily

congested during peak times

due to its close proximity to

Burnside High and Christ the

King schools.

Showcasing supplies for

baby’s safety & comfort

Your Local Views

For the love of trees

City councillor Aaron

Keown writes about

the need to consider

the well-being of

residents who wish to

have trees removed

from council-owned

land

The Baby on the Move display will include many top-brand products.

Leading suppliers of baby products and carseats, Baby on the Move of

Wairakei Road in Burnside, and Gasson Street in Sydenham, will again

be taking part in the annual Baby Expo being held at Pioneer Stadium this

coming weekend.

Occupying one of the largest floor areas at the expo, Baby on the Move will be

displaying many of its top-brand products. They will include infant capsules,

car seats, buggies, baby baths and more. As always, there will be great deals

available on products for purchase, including Britax, Diono and Evenflo

carseats, and the Thule and Baby Jogger buggy ranges.

LIKE MOST Kiwi kids I

grew up loving trees.

Climbing trees, building

tree huts, they were great

for hide and seek and some

even had fruit.

We also grew up

knowing that trees had

a very important part to

play in the balance of the

ecosystem.

Then during autumn,

you could build massive

stacks of leaves to hide in

or if you were really lucky

an adult would come along

and let you help them rake

leaves into piles for a burnoff.

Then I grew up and the

reality of being an adult

kicked in. Suddenly trees

needed looking after,

someone had to clean up

the leaves, acorns and

other debris that constantly

drops from trees. Once

elected I soon learnt that

not everyone loves trees

everywhere and I would

have to agree.

There is a place for trees

in the Garden City, in fact,

we need to plant a lot more,

but they have to be the

right tree in the right place.

Unfortunately, the city

council currently has a

policy where it will not cut

down any healthy tree no

matter how negative the

impacts may be on those

who live around the tree.

All this does is give us a

growing number of people

who dislike or hate trees.

This is so alien to me, as I

thought as a child everyone

loved trees. Every problem

has a solution and my

solution is a simple one.

We must always

consider the well-being of

residents as one of the key

factors when we decide

whether a tree should be

removed or not.

Then if we are to cut

down or remove a tree we

should just plant 10 more

where they are needed and

wanted. Yes, we need more

trees but they have to be

the right tree in the right

environment and we must

always look after the well

being of our residents.

Happy Arbor Day

everyone.

Baby on the Move will also be showcasing their hire range, specifically aimed

at families expecting a newborn in coming months.

The stores’ trained and qualified child restraint technicians will be at the

expo to talk to new parents and grandparents about the safety features and

benefits of the various carseats, plus there will be seminars on both Saturday

and Sunday where people can learn how carseats are to be correctly used for

safety and comfort.

Whether hiring or purchasing a carseat from Baby on the Move, installation is

always free of charge.

Baby on the Move was established in New Zealand more than 20 years

ago and there are two branches in Christchurch:

Baby On The Move Christchurch North is located at 515 Wairakei Rd, close

to Roydvale Avenue, phone 960 9752, and is open Monday to Friday, 9.30am-

4pm and Saturday 9.30am-2.30pm.

Baby on the Move Christchurch Central is located on the corner of

Gasson and Byron streets at 87a Gasson Street, Sydenham, phone 421

3243, and is open Monday to Friday 9:30am-5pm and Saturday 10am-2pm.

OPTIONS: Feedback is being sought on two options to improve the Harewood,

Breens and Gardiners Rds intersection.

Merav Benaia

responds to the

article about options

for the contentious

Harewood, Breens

and Gardiners Rds

intersection which

are currently out for

consultation

I HAVE read a number

of articles in the paper

regarding the consultation

on the upgrade of the

Harewood/Gardiners/

Breens intersection.

As a resident of

Papanui, I attended the

consultation sessions,

and I am surprised to

learn that option two is

touted as the preferred

option and the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board has

come out in support of it

and is requesting to defer

the planned cycle route

along Harewood Rd. The

sensible, economical and

long-term thinking should

have given the planning

for this cycle route going

from Papanui/Main North

intersection towards the

airport a higher priority.

Option one in the

consultation paper will

enable the city council to

address and improve the

safety at the Harewood/

Gardiners/Breens

intersection immediately.

The funding is available

from the cycle route budget

and will likely be eligible

for a funding subsidy from

central Government. This

way, money can be retained

for the Greers/Harewood

intersection, which is far

more dangerous, causing

injuries and deaths, as

crash data shows, and

is higher on the priority

list. Option two, which

proposes having traffic

lights, will not have the

required funding available

in the near future, nor

do we know if this will

be available in the next

decade. This funding is

not in the Long term Plan

and the intersection is

No 62 on the priority list.

Supporting this option is

very much tunnel vision

trying to solve a single

problem and in light of the

climate crisis declaration

that was adopted recently,

supporting this option

might be popular but very

much lacking in vision.

Murray Williams of

the Papanui Heritage

Group highlights

the history of the

Firestone Factory in

the third of a short

series of articles

OVER THE last two

months, we have briefly

reviewed the history of the

Firestone plant in Papanui.

In this article, we learn

something about what it

was like to work on the factory

floor. Trevor Newton’s

late father, Jock, worked for

Firestone from 1949 until

1973.

Jock, who had previously

worked for a family

firewood business, was attracted

by the good wages

and the job security, in

contrast to the stress and

variable income associated

with the family venture.

The Firestone factory

was a labour intensive

business. The process of

tyre-making was broken

down into a number of

specialist tasks and Trevor’s

father was trained as

a bead maker, responsible

for the production of the

key component which was

designed to hold the tyre

on the rim of the wheel.

Once the process was mastered,

boredom was the

biggest problem as the task

was endlessly repetitive.

When Trevor was 12, his

father took him into the

factory to show him where

he worked. Trevor was

struck with the contrast

between the peaceful

grassy open spaces outside

the building and the reality

of conditions inside the

factory. He remembers the

noise of the machinery and

the pervading presence

of soot and he found the

whole atmosphere frightening.

The soot was actually

lampblack and later the

union was concerned that

exposure to this carbonbased

material could be

carcinogenic.

However, the company

was also known for its

willingness to look after

its workforce. Two large

cafeterias provided good

quality food and at Christmas

time a party for the

workers and their families

was held.

Various handouts were

also dispensed – items

such as glass ashtrays

encircled with miniature

rubber tyres were popular

as were the large annual

calendars with the eyecatching

Firestone masthead

which also featured

New Zealand scenic views.

Long-standing employees

were also eligible for an

issue of company stock,

and when his father died in

1975, Trevor inherited 400

shares.

Trevor still travels along

the cycleway beside the

railway line and although

the physical evidence of

the factory no longer exists

he can still imagine the

smell of rubber in the air

and recalls the advertising

jingle he remembers from

his childhood. ‘The name

is known as Firestone,

where the rubber meets the

road.’

Goodall drops into Rangi

ONE OF the country’s leading

environmentally sustainable

schools, Rangi Ruru, hosted

world-renowned conservationist

Dame Jane Goodall last week.

Dr Goodall was in

Christchurch as part of

the worldwide Roots and

Shoots programme, of which

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

is a member. Canterbury

University’s Community

Engagement Hub was also

instrumental in setting up her

visit to Rangi Ruru.

Dr Goodall discussed her

programme and the work

the school has undertaken to

become a leading sustainable

school.

Head of sustainability, year

13 student Rosetta Brown,

discussed the school’s ongoing

initiatives and other global

environmental issues.

“We were so excited to host

Dr Goodall,” said Rosetta.

“She is legendary in the world

of conservation and animal

welfare, as well as shining a light

on environmental issues.”

Said director of sustainability

Kate Rivers: “The best place

to embed a change in how

we approach sustainability is

close to home which is why

environmental awareness and

programmes are so intertwined

in everyday life at Rangi.”

Fitting in well with the Roots

and Shoots Programme, the

school has locked in ambitious

sustainability policies,

embedding new habits and

initiatives to reduce effects on

the planet.

The establishment of

a biodigester at the school is the

current project being driven by

students on the Sustainability

Council and Energy Action

Group.

They plan to start fundraising

for the project shortly. The

biodigester will convert green

waste to biogas and allow Rangi

Ruru to eliminate the need for

non-renewable energy.

“This will further reduce

our carbon footprint while

NOR’WEST NEWS

making significant savings to

reinvest into innovative, new

sustainability projects. We

hope this initiative will become

a model for other New Zealand

schools and institutions in the

future,” said Rosetta.

Rangi Ruru has already

reduced waste to landfill by 58

per cent in the past three years,

through education, source

separation, creating healthy

habits, increasing collections of

reusable goods to redistribute,

and by working closely with the

community, social enterprise and

business.

Play, learn, grow

The Enchanted Garden Early

Childhood Centre on Greers Road

in Bryndwr is a very special place

where babies and children are given the

chance to develop and learn in a cosy,

home-like environment. It takes its

name from the large garden tucked

away at the back of the centre which

is filled with fruit trees and is a safe

place for children to play and find

out about the natural world.

Parents know that when they

leave their children at The

Enchanted Garden, they are

in safe hands. The small team

are all fully-qualified teachers

and the teacher-to-child ratios

are extremely generous. In the

nursery there is a teacher for

every three children and in the preschool,

that increases to one teacher

per seven children. That means all

children receive heaps of attention so

that the teachers can make sure they

are comfortable, cared for and happy as

well as encouraging them to develop.

The team works closely with parents

at all stages and parents are always

welcome to drop in and be involved

in their child’s learning or just

spend some time enjoying the

family-atmosphere.

Debbie Taylor is the owner and

manager of The Enchanted Garden, and

as a teacher as well, she understands

how important it is to combine learning

and meeting Te Whāriki, the national

curriculum for young children,

alongside free play and fun. There is

a focus on welcoming children from

a diverse range of backgrounds and

celebrating this through food, song and

stories so that children grow up to be

part of a richer community. She and her

team have made it as easy as possible

for parents and carers to combine busy

lives with the needs of young children.

The centre opens at 7.30am and does not

close until 5.30pm and they offer both

half and full-day options to fit in with

work and other commitments. Their

rates are already competitive but they

also offer up to 20 hours’ free per week

for children aged two-and-a-half to five

years old.

RISINGHOLM COMMUNITY CENTRE

Cherished homestead

restored and ready to re-open

A cherished community resource in

Opawa, closed since the February 2011

earthquake, is set to re-open this week,

fully restored.

Risingholme, the historic homestead in

Cholmondeley Avenue, was badly damaged

in the earthquake, and then received

further devastating damage in a fire on

Queen’s Birthday weekend, 2016.

The restoration work, which started

in January 2018, is now complete, and

tomorrow Christchurch Mayor Lianne

Dalziel will officially reopen the homestead,

handing it back to the community, which

has been waiting eagerly to use and enjoy

it again.

Registered with the Historic Places Trust

as a Category 2 historic place and now in

its 75th year, this gracious building set in

beautiful park surroundings was purchased

and gifted to the city council in 1943 by

John McKenzie, founder of the McKenzies

retail stores, for the “health, amusement

and instruction of the public”.

That resulted in the ongoing development

of educational and leisure classes, covering

a wide diversity of topics and interests,

which over the years have drawn people of

all ages and backgrounds.

Director of Risingholme Community

Centre, the not-for-profit organisation that

runs the Adult and Community Education

classes, Wendel Karati, says people attend

classes for many reasons, perhaps following

trauma, wanting to learn a new skill, gain

employment or to enjoy the company of

like-minded people as they learn.

“Coming to a class can help restore selfconfidence

and bring new hope for people,”

she says.

During the closure of Risingholme

Homestead and Hall the Risingholme

Community Centre has continued to

operate from 99 Hawford Road, directly

behind Risingholme Park. Classes have

also been held at Riccarton High School,

Hornby High School and Girls’ High, as

well as at other community facilities around

the city.

The full programme of classes is listed on

the Risingholme website and enrolments

can be completed on the website or by

calling into the Risingholme Community

Centre office, 22 Cholmondeley Avenue,

Opawa.

The hall at Risingholme has also

been repaired and is again available for

community groups to hire.

OPEN DAY

Saturday 8th June

10am - 2pm

This Saturday, Risingholme is

holding an open day for people to

come and see the newly restored

homestead and find out about the

classes.

“There has been huge community

interest in the restoration, and this

will be an opportunity for people to

come and celebrate the reopening of

Risingholme,” Wendel says.

The open day will run from 10am-

2pm. Refreshments will be available

for purchase, including soup in a

special commemorative cup that has

been created in Risingholme’s pottery

studio.

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.

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.

What makes a great

Heat Transfer System?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected

components to optimise the system:

They use insulated duct to transfer the

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance

and number of rooms, without being noisy.

The diffusers send the heat to the floor,

not to skim the across the ceilings. All

components are good quality - designed to

operate for years without problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of

options: One to four rooms, with or without

thermostat and with a choice of grilles and

diffusers. HTUs improve energy efficiency

in your house, as you are using excess

heat. They have low power consumption

- only 80watts for the three room system.

Circulating air through the house also

reduces the risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU version

with downjet diffusers, which throw the

warm air downwards to the floor. These

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to

regulate which room receives the most

warm air.

An average size living room requires 2-4

kw of heating, yet appliances such as log

burners generate heat in the region of 10

-20kw. This leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of

heat which sits at high level in the heated

room, usually above door level.

Heat transfer units work best where very

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate

warm air around the room with no

layering, are not suitable as a heat source

by themselves. However, if you have both

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer

systems with thermostat can work very

well: The heat pump stops operating once

the heat from the fire has heated the room,

and the heat transfer kicks in above this

point, once there is a layer of hot air at the

ceiling.

(0800 766 684) to ask how they can help

you with your Heat Transfer, as well as

any other ventilation requirements.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

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.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

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.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

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

Cave Rock

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

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.”

The bylaw comes as an increasing

In the past year, the district

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

Ri carton Community Board

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the pla ned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.
