• By Julia Evans

THE SPEED limit in the

Woolston Village precinct may

be dropped.

Consultation is set to begin on

lowering the speed limit along

Ferry Rd from Portman St to

nearly Palinurus Rd to 30km/h.

Part of St Johns St, Maronan

St, Oak St, Heathcote St,

Portman St and Glenroy St

would also be lowered to 40km/h

as part of the proposal.

Public feedback on the plan

will open on June 17 and close on

July 8 before being approved by

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board and city

council in August.

Speed limit drops around

Sumner will be consulted on at

the same time.

The Esplanade would have a

speed limit of 30km/h, while a

large part of residential Sumner

would be dropped to 40km/h.

The move follows previous

consultation on the Sumner

which approved implementing a

THERE’S A very heart-warming story

on the front page today about Mort, the

huntaway cross.

Many dogs have sad lives; neglected and

beaten by cowardly owners who treat them

badly simply because they can.

These dogs have complex behavioural problems. The

underlying ones are fear and mistrust which in turn lead to

more issues.

But luckily Mort now has a loving home and is doing well.

It takes a lot of care and love, not to mention patience, to turn

a rescue dog around. But as Mort’s new owner Vikki Smith is

finding, the rewards are worth it.

Treat a dog well and they will return the affection and be a

loyal mate for life.

Roberts Rd a rubbish dump

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SECURITY CAMERAS are not

the answer to address a road

in Hornby being continuously

targeted for fly-tipping.

Whiteware, green waste and

furniture has plagued an isolated

area of Roberts Rd for years and

burnt out cars are often found

there.

But city council’s

manager

Mark Pinner said

installing CCTV

footage or signage

is not the answer

as the culprits

Instead, he said increased public

vigilance and reporting – as

well as education and enforcement

are needed to make people

realise it is not acceptable.

Greater Hornby Residents’ Association

chairman Marc Duff

said it is an issue he is looking at

raising at the association’s next

meeting.

He said he would like to see

more surveillance of the road as

TREE REMOVAL

The city council will remove

about 172 trees at Quaifes Rd,

Halswell. The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

has received a memorandum

stating the trees are required to

be removed for the construction

of the Cox’s Quaifes Stormwater

constructed north of Quaifes Rd

to cater for development planned

in the city council’s South West

Area Plan 2009. Construction of

the facility will require extensive

excavation, resulting in the

removal of existing trees

within the site. All trees have

been found to be in poor

condition.

Work will start on the last

construction will take place

on Halswell Rd from Halswell

Controversial liquor store plan met

A plan for a liquor store

in Redcliffs went before

the district licensing

committee recently. Louis

Day reports

THE POLICE, the city council’s

district licensing inspector and

the Canterbury District Health

Board’s medical officer of health

all have no issue with the liquor

store planned for the Main Rd

shopping area.

But a number of Redcliffs

residents don’t want it.

Forty-six

made written

submissions

opposing the

plan, while

nine gave oral

submissions

at the hearing

and a petition

Neralie

containing

97 names was

presented to

Brittenden

the hearings panel.

Rizak Enterprises Ltd wants

to put the off-licence in at 1/87

Main Rd and operate from

Monday to Sunday, 9am to

10pm.

Redcliffs resident of 23

years Neralie Brittenden’s

closing statement during her

oral submission was met with

applause and cheers from the

public gallery.

“There is a billboard that

says say nope to dope, equally

to that I say nah to liqaaa,” she

said.

She is concerned about the

impact a liquor outlet could have

on youth in the area. “I have

12 grandchildren and I’m very

mindful of the social issues that

alcohol presents while kids are

growing up,” she told the threeperson

panel, chaired by Cindy

Robinson.

“I view it as an unnecessary

influence on our young people.”

This was a concern for many

objectors.

Rizak Enterprises Ltd sole

director and shareholder Juraj

Singh felt he was experienced

enough to mitigate alcohol harm

in the community. Mr Singh

referred to the success of his

Thirsty Liquor outlet in Papanui,

which he has run for three years.

“The application to renew the

licence was not opposed by the

reporting agencies, nor were

there any objectors. I have good

relationships within the local

community with both residents

and business owners. The good

has not been reduced in any

way,” he said.

Counsel Peter Egden does not

think what his client is proposing

poses more of a threat than the

Redcliffs New World alcohol

section.

“What Mr Singh proposes

is far better than the exposure

to alcohol at the supermarket,

where a child can go to the

supermarket unaccompanied

and go up and down the liquor

aisle unattended. They won’t even

be able to go into Mr Singh’s

store,” he said.

www.fourseasonstreecare.co.nz

Mr Singh originally proposed

to operate the business under

the Thirsty Liquor franchise,

but decided to resubmit his

application as an independent

fine wine and spirits store.

Mr Singh said there would not

be the outdoor advertising that

characterises a typical bottle

store and he would ensure the

windows would be frosted to

the height of the shelving so the

alcohol would not be visible from

the street.

Sumner Redcliffs Anglican

assistant curate

John Fox

labelled the

application as

“incomplete and

inconsistent.”

Dr Fox

questioned

whether a fine

wine and spirits

store should be

selling RTDs.

Peter Egden

Mr Singh said

not all RTDs are bad.

“Old aged people love RTDs,

like Gordon’s gin and tonic.”

Dr Fox did not think Mr Singh

would be a “good neighbour.”

He referred to when Mr Singh

received a six-week suspension of

his manager’s certificate in 2011

for selling alcohol to an underage

person.

with opposition

Dr Fox thought Mr Singh’s

application failed to cater

for Redcliffs “vulnerable

community.”

“We have substantial areas

where people are still recovering

from the earthquakes and we

obviously had the terrorist attack.

What we would have liked to

see is a much more responsible

approach to alcohol harm.”

Mr Singh’s application was also

criticised by Redcliffs resident

Jackie Jones.

She questioned why Mr Singh

did not include tobacco in his

application when he had full

intentions of selling it in his store.

Mr Singh said he simply forgot

to include it in his application.

“Everyone sometimes forgets,

when you get ready you forget a

watch or something,” he said.

Ms Jones responded: “This is a

legal document and this is what

really concerns me. A process

must be seen to be followed.”

Redcliffs resident Dan

Tremewan was concerned the

instalment of a liquor outlet

would increase the amount

of disorderly behaviour on

Beachville Reserve.

Mr Tremewan said he would

often come across piles of soiled

clothing and inebriated people

sleeping on the reserve.

He said he had also been met

Dan Tremewan

with threats of violence when

asking people keep the noise

down late at night.

“There are already too many

problems on the reserve and we

don’t want to see alcohol access

extended and the problems

increase,” he said.

Mr Egden questioned whether

Mr Tremewan would challenge

New World’s liquor licence when

it came under review.

Mr Tremewan responded: “No

teenagers I know go and drink

pinot gris, they go and drink

RTDs.”

Senior Constable Logan Steele,

for the police, city council alcohol

licencing inspector Hamish Little

and Canterbury District Health

Board medical officer of health

John Fox

George Paul put questions to

both Mr Singh and the objectors

during the hearing.

They had declared at the

start of the hearing they had no

objection to the application.

The district licensing

committee will now consider

all the information that has

been submitted to them in the

hearings process.

A city council spokeswoman

said it was unclear when they

would come to a final decision.

Sumner Rd reopening helps businesses

LYTTELTON businesses are

enjoying the benefits of a rise

in visitors since Sumner Rd

reopened two months ago.

The road connecting Lyttelton

and Sumner was closed to

traffic for eight years following

extensive damage in the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

It reopened at the end of March

after contractors spent two-anda-half

years working to reduce

rockfall risk and then repairing

and reinstating the route.

City council traffic counts on

Evans Pass Rd at the bottom

of the hill in Sumner show a

50 per cent increase in traffic

on weekdays. On weekends,

the average number of vehicles

more than doubled in the two

weeks after the road reopened,

compared to the previous two

weeks.

The average number of vehicles

on a weekday grew from 1128 to

1750; on Saturdays it rose from

1292 to 2951; and on Sundays it

increased from 1455 to 3045.

Lyttelton Harbour Business

Association chairman Rob

de Thier, who owns Lyttelton

SuperValue, said there has been

a dramatic pick-up in customers

for local businesses, particularly

in the hospitality sector.

“It’s been good, especially

for the coffee shops and bars.

They’ve seen a noticeable increase

since the road opened. With

the supermarket it’s been steady

instead of the normal drop-off we

would have going into April and

May. We haven’t had that yet,” he

said. “We’ve also noticed what

we call the ‘lycra brigade’ arrive

en masse. After biking over the

hill, they’ll stop here at the end

reopened in March.

of their ride to have coffees and

meals.”

Lyttelton Coffee Culture owner

Leona Cooper said the upturn

was “absolutely noticeable”.

“We’ve seen an increase every

day, not just on weekends.

There’s the cycling group and

more elderly and middle-aged

people. For some people it still is

a scary thing heading through

the tunnel, so for them, I think

it’s really cool that they can

come back to Lyttelton and take

a scenic route getting here,” she

said.

Clock tower

repairs to start

next month

THE REPAIR of the New

Brighton Clock Tower is set to

begin next month.

The city council capital delivery

team has finished evaluating

tenders from a number of

contractors and should award

the contract in the coming

weeks.

Once the repairs are under

way they are expected to take

six to eight months.

The clock tower has been

surrounded by scaffolding and

covered in plastic since March

last year, costing ratepayers

$1500 a month.

Repairs were due to start in

September last year, but were

delayed after detailed investigation

revealed more damage and

overdue maintenance-related

issues than expected.

Most of the damage has been

caused by exposure to the coastal

environment, which has caused

erosion to structural steel.

The repairs will involve the

replacement of two cracked

internal floors, addressing

drainage issues and the application

of concrete and corrosion

treatments. The repairs will

take place at the same time as

the repair of the Scarborough

Giving Mort a new start

•From page 1

But determined not to

give up, Ms Smith initially

started taking Mort to the

edge of Westlake Reserve

to get him used to seeing

other dogs.

Now Mort has

participated in his first

cross-country competition

for canines and is training

to take part in upcoming

agility competitions in the

summer.

Recently he finished

second in the Canterbury

Sled Dog Club’s Winter

Solstice competition

with Ms Smith’s partner

Michael Murray.

“He absolutely loves it.

As soon as his harness goes

on, he sees you putting his

running gear on and he

gets so excited.”

Ms Smith spends about

10 hours a week training

Mort and he also attends

the Selwyn Dog Training

Club.

“When dogs are puppies

it is really important they

learn to focus on you when

there are other dogs around

. . . Mort didn’t have any

of that. I noticed when I

first got him if any dog was

around he would just lose

his head,” he said.

Ms Smith also suspects

Mort was trained with

physical punishment.

While Mort is still not

quite ready to walk off-lead

at the park, Ms Smith

believes he will in the

future.

She said considering

what he has been through,

he has got “a cheerful

disposition.”

“He is just such a happy

dog, it gives you such

a good outlook on life

because he just finds joy

in the most simple things

like an egg box or a tennis

ball.

“You just think life is

not about being really

successful in your career

or whatever, it is just about

being happy from day to

day,” Ms Smith said.

Mort is named after a

character in the fantasy

novel Mort by Terry

Pratchett.

“The description of Mort

said it looks as though

he is entirely made out of

knees - un-coordinated

and knobbly. That is a

pretty good description of

Podcast tells rebarkable stories

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

FIRST THERE was Humans of

New York – now there is Dogs of

New Brighton.

Heritage New Zealand outreach

worker Michele Hollis has released

the pilot episode of her podcast

series – Dogs of New Brighton –

which shares the lives of canines at

the beach and their owners.

“Almost every day I’ve walked

on the beach, mostly with Jess

(her 12-year-old bearded collie

huntaway cross), but I’ve been

thinking for months and months

about how dogs bring people

together in New Brighton,” she

said.

“Christchurch is a dog city, but

New Brighton is the dog capital of

Christchurch.”

Ms Hollis said every dog has a

story. She takes a little inspiration

from the Humans of New York

phenomenon, a photoblog and

book of street portraits and

interviews collected in the Big

Apple.

“It’s great to tell stories. They

talk about regular people, this is

regular dogs,” she said.

Ms Hollis said walking along

the beach with a dog opened

conversation channels that were

otherwise closed – something

which should be celebrated.

“You find out how they got

the dog, what kind of breed it

is, all those wonderful stories.

You realise how many diverse

experiences people pack into their

lives,” she said.

“You find actually people are

really interesting and most people

are really lovely.”

Jess is the show’s co-host.

“She’s a retired working dog.

We rescued her from a stockyard.

There was a meatworks just

outside of Wellington . . . the

shepherd just walked off the job.”

Ms Hollis said Jess is “starting

to slow down” but will still do

anything for food, including cohost

a podcast.

“She’s a very even-tempered

dog and is particularly attached

to me. She loves going to the

beach and just hanging out.”

The pilot episode of Dogs of

New Brighton features Shanti,

a papillon from North New

Brighton, and her owner Su

Jorgensen, an organic hairdresser.

“Shanti only has three legs

because she was hit by a car

before her new owner got her

. . . at the hairdresser. Shanti will

come and jump up and sit on

your lap,” she said.

The pilot was a success and

now Ms Hollis is waiting to hear

back from PlainsFM about a

fortnightly Monday slot.

“I want to celebrate our

distinctness . . . New Brighton is a

place that’s got a lot going for it.”

However, Ms Hollis said while

the first few episodes will focus

on dogs from the Brighton area,

there will be some from across

the city. “I’ve already got my eye

on a few people who bring their

dogs in from across town.”

DOGGONE: Michele Hollis and

Jess are co-hosting the Dogs

of New Brighton podcast,

which looks into the stories

behind the area’s canines.

Bunny crosses protest calcivirus

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

PETER RABBIT, Bugs Bunny,

Roger Rabbit, Thumper, Jack

Rabbit and the Easter Bunny.

They are some of children’s

most beloved bunnies and they

now have a grave site at the

Anzac Drive and New Brighton

Rd roundabout.

A hike in the rabbit population

in the red zone over the last

year will see the calicivirus

K5 released in Heathcote,

Brooklands, Horseshoe Lake,

Bexley and Avondale at the end

of June.

On the McLean scale of one

to eight, which measures rabbit

density, biosecurity experts

scored the areas four. That’s an

increase since last spring, which

has led to the virus’ release

and someone putting up the

memorials.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency – which manages the

roundabout – is aware of the

crosses, said maintenance

contract manager North

Canterbury Barry Stratton.

“But [it] is not planning to

remove them unless they cause

safety issues with people not

paying attention to their driving.”

Mr Stratton said the agency

does not know who put the

memorials up.

Land Information New

Zealand Christchurch manager

for land and property, Matt

Bradley, said the K5 virus was the

recommended option as it only

affected European rabbits.

“We consulted with the New

Zealand Veterinary Association

Drive and New

roundabout.

before making the decision to

release the virus. They have

made sure veterinary clinics in

Christchurch are aware so they

can remind all owners of pet

rabbits to take the appropriate

steps to ensure their animals are

vaccinated appropriately,” Mr

Bradley said.

NZVA chief veterinary officer

Helen Beattie said some pet

rabbits in the area will have

some immunity from previous

vaccinations, but others will have

no protection.

“Rabbits vaccinated against

previously released strains of the

calicivirus are likely to have some

immunity but owners should

be aware these animals require

a booster vaccination every 12

months,” Dr Beattie said.

“Rabbits that have not been

vaccinated will not be protected

and owners should have these

animals vaccinated as soon as

possible.” The vaccination can

take up to 21 days to become

effective. Calicivirus is spread

by direct contact with other

rabbits through insect vectors,

such as flies and fleas, or by

contact with contaminated

objects. It kills rabbits within 12

to 36 hours of infection. LINZ

is also monitoring the number

of possums, rats, mice, stoats,

weasels, ferrets and canada geese

in the red zone.

Hospital patients in danger crossing road

• By Matt Slaughter

SOME BURWOOD Hospital

patients are being put in

danger when trying to cross

the Burwood and Mairehau

Rds intersection, says the New

Zealand Spinal Trust.

The trust’s members want

traffic lights to be installed at the

intersection.

A site visit is set to take place

between trust representatives,

city council staff and Burwood

Ward city councillor Glenn

Livingstone, where the trust will

attempt to show the need for

lights.

City council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas said the intersection is

on its radar, but it is too early

to determine how it would be

improved.

“There is a budget allocated in

the current Long Term Plan for

intersection improvements at the

Burwood-Mairehau intersection

and scheme options are currently

being investigated. How and

when the project progresses

will be determined through the

Annual Plan process, which

will be adopted in late June. The

intersection has been on budget

since the 2015-25 Long Term

Plan,” Mr Thomas said.

Spinal trust senior pair support

co-ordinator Brett Ladbrook said

traffic lights would be the safest

option.

“I’ve seen what they’ve done

to the Burwood Rd and QE II

intersection when the traffic

lights were put in there from a

roundabout and that made a

huge difference to the flow of

traffic, but also to pedestrians

being able to get across a very,

very busy road.”

Mr Ladbrook, who uses a

wheelchair, said the intersection,

which patients cross to get to

the nearby shops, is becoming

increasingly busy.

“With the advent of the

Prestons Rd subdivision coming

in, the traffic flow there now is

worse than it’s ever been.”

Mr Ladbrook said at the start

of the year, a woman fell from

her wheelchair and fractured her

foot crossing the road.

The only protection available

to people crossing the road

is four traffic islands and a

roundabout.

Spinal trust chief executive

Hans Wouters said motorists will

sometimes drive through the

roundabout without taking time

to look for pedestrians.

There is only 3-4m between

the traffic islands and each side

of the road, but this is a long way

for inexperienced wheelchair

users, Mr Wouters said.

“They are unskilled wheelchair

users, who are brand new to

disability, lacking in skills and

confidence.

“If someone zips around

the corner coming from the

opposite direction, you could be

compromised.”

Cr Livingstone said a date

is yet to be set for the site

meeting.

WATCH OUT: Hans Wouters

(left) and Brett Ladbrook,

of the New Zealand Spinal

Trust, say the Burwood and

Mairehau Rds intersection is

too dangerous for wheelchair

users.

Late grandmother inspires teen

bowler to successful season

• By Jacob Page

BOWLER BRAEDEN Casware

certainly has a proud supporter

looking down on him when he is

on the green.

The Hillmorton High School

student took up the sport two

years ago after his grandmother,

Irene Harvey, an avid bowler,

died in 2016.

The 16-year-old, who

plays at the Cashmere club,

had a breakthrough season,

finishing second at the

Canterbury secondary school

championships in March and

then finishing 10th in his first

tilt at the national secondary

schools championships in

Auckland a month later.

“My nana played for Halswell

in 2015 and 2016 and then she

retired, and in November of

2016 she died of cancer and after

that I heard she played bowls

and I decided I’d give it a go and

follow in her footsteps,” he said.

A total novice, Braeden has

had to learn the game from

scratch, but said he now loves

the tactics involved.

“The first season was

challenging and I was at

Halswell and they were a big

club so it was hard to make an

impression being the youngest at

the club,” he said.

“I made the switch to

Cashmere because there was a

coach who wanted to train me

there and I’ve since fallen in love

SPORT

ON THE GREEN: Braeden Casware has had a breakthrough

season since he started playing bowls after his grandmother,

Irene Harvey, died.

with Cashmere.”

He still has to keep his grades

high to keep playing.

“Dad said I had to pass NCEA

level one to keep playing, so I

had to pick up my game a bit,”

he said.

Braeden plays football for

Halswell United during the

winter, but he said bowls is his

major sporting focus.

“I really enjoy the game and

I’m improving so I’ll keep at it.”

One day he would like to

represent Canterbury and play

the game professionally.

Talented basketballers pull

off wins for Cashmere High

• By Jacob Page

CASHMERE HIGH School’s

senior boys basketball team

were able to defeat two South

Island opponents in one day last

week.

The South Island champions

ran a split squad and beat

Waimea College 70-64 at

their annual schools sports

exchange in Nelson. The

remaining players, including

some debuting year 10s, were

then able to beat Burnside High

School 100-51 in their Thomson

Trophy encounter. Cashmere

also defended the Dowson Cup,

after they ironically won it off

Burnside in 2017.

The cup is the Ranfurly Shield

Cashmere coach Paul Conner

said it was great to have such

depth in the basketball ranks,

but admits he will have “a good

headache” when it comes to

selecting his squad for the South

Island and national tournaments

later this year,

“It’s always a balancing act

between giving the seniors their

last opportunities at tournaments

and having some succession

planning for the future.

“It’s a problem, but a good

problem to have so many quality

players at our school,” he said.

Alex Wenmoth, Tyrese Kissel,

Jayden Olsen all made their

debuts against Burnside High

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.

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH

(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

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

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

Pupils learn about role of war horses

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

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

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.

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’

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

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

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

Only eight submi sions were

aimed at regulating commercial

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

Pupils learn about role of war horses

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

Elite Meats owner Corey

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

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

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.
