quarry plan

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A COMMUNITY board

submission criticising Fulton

Hogan’s contentious Templeton

quarry plan is set to be finalised

on Wednesday.

The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board has

highlighted “significantly adverse

effects” from the proposed

Roydon Quarry if it is allowed to

go ahead. They include:

•The impact the quarry will

have on transport infrastructure

and health of water bodies.

•The quarry is not consistent

with the Selwyn District Plan;

land and water plan; regional air

plan; and other strategic plans in

the area.

•Residents loss of rural

character, adverse visual impacts

and potential health effects

associated with the discharge of

contaminants.

•A negative impact on nearby

businesses – particularly

training stables located around

Templeton.

•Noise and vibrations which

would negatively impact on

the planned cemetery at 173

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

street maintenance

manager

Mark Pinner said

installing CCTV

footage or signage

is not the answer

as the culprits

will readily relocate

elsewhere.

Marc Duff

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

the cost of the city council having

to clean up the rubbish could

easily be put towards cameras.

In the last 18 months, it has received

Fines for people caught littering

additional lighting and more

He suspected the fly-tipping

was happening mostly at

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

Facility. The facility will be

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.

QUARRYMAN’S TRAIL

Work will start on the last

part of the Quarryman’s

Trail cycle route today. The

construction will take place

on Halswell Rd from Halswell

Domain through to Te Hāpua:

Halswell Centre. It is the last

small section of a whole package

of works between Victors and

Halswell Rds. The footpath

will be closed on the Halswell

and there will be lane shifts for

traffic on Halswell Rd – but twoway

traffic will be maintained

throughout.

ECan drive for Horn

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A BIG WHEEL in the Halswell

community has put her name

forward to run for Environment

Canterbury.

Halswell Community Project

chairwoman Chrys Horn will

have a crack at running for the

Opuna West Ward in October’s

local body elections.

It won’t be the first time Dr

Horn has attempted to enter the

political scene – in 2016 she unsuccessfully

ran for city council

and the following year Selwyn

MP under the Green Party.

“My background is in environment

and community and I

think those two things go really

well at ECan,” she said.

Dr Horn will be standing

alongside fellow Halswell

resident and Boffa Miskell

environmental consultant Craig

Pauling.

Both will be running for the

two seats available for the ward

under The People’s Choice.

With a PhD in social science

and a professional background

in environmental management

and community resilience, Dr

Horn has many goals she is hoping

to achieve if elected.

Dr Horn wants to fight against

water bottling and is also concerned

about climate change,

public transport and protecting

Cantebury’s soil.

Chrys Horn

“Our agriculture soil is getting

eaten up by urban development

. . . if we keep building houses

on good soil that produces food

then where are we going to produce

good food,” she said.

Dr Horn said it is important to

think about how the city looks

after the soils it has to feed the

community.

“It would be stupid to then

have to import from a long way

away from the outskirts of the

city.”

Dr Horn is also hoping to

make public transport more attractive

to use.

“I think there are a lot of issues.

I don’t think I can fix all of

it but by golly, I can start talking

about it,” Dr Horn said.

Mr Pauling is hoping to use

his background in environmental

management to work

on freshwater biodiversity and

restoration.

In 2016, Dr Horn narrowly

lost by 97 votes against Anne

Galloway in her bid to be

elected as city councillor for the

Halswell ward.

“I feel like Anne Galloway is

doing a pretty reasonable job

of being a councillor here and

I didn’t want to challenge her

particularly,” she said.

The following year she came

third in the race to secure the

Selwyn MP seat under the Green

Party with 2255 votes.

Dr Horn lost to Amy Adams

who received 25,320 votes,

securing 66 per cent of the

electorate’s candidate votes and

Labour’s Tony Condon who

received 7695.

But she clearly hasn’t been put

off running for the elections.

“I like the idea of doing the job

that is involved but it is the campaigning

that is hard,” she said.

Having grown up in Halswell,

she returned to the suburb

16 years ago and has driven

many initiatives including the

Halswell Community Project,

the Halswell Newsletter, the

Halswell Community website

and the Halswell Market.

Car park solutions sought near university

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RESIDENTS LIVING near

Canterbury University want

to find solutions to address the

number of students and staff

being “forced” to park out on

residential streets due to high

parking costs.

The Ilam

and Upper

Riccarton

Residents’

Association

is looking at

options to

encourage

more students

John

Reddiford

and staff to get

“out of their

cars.”

Its chairman

John Reddiford said parking

on campus has increased

substantially in the past three

years which has forced students

and staff to park on surrounding

roads.

On-site campus car parking at

the university has sky-rocketed

over the years with all year

permits for students rising

from $304-$475 since 2017 and

staff $475-$1000.

It was due to the university

being unable to cover the cover

the cost of car park provision

and maintenance.

A Canterbury University

spokeswoman said it did not

believe a reduction of its oncampus

parking fees to anything

other than zero would have any

significant reduction of on-street

parking congestion.

“The university council has

been mindful of keeping fees at a

level reasonable enough for those

parking on campus while still

generating sufficient funds to

cover maintenance.”

Current fees and parking

permits do not meet the costs

of car park provision and

maintenance.

“The lifetime cost of creating

a single car park is $7000 with

further costs associated with

monitoring and enforcement,” a

spokeswoman said.

The university currently

has 3742 on campus car parks

for staff, students and visitors

including 610 temporary car

parks for contractors and 63

mobility parks.

Under the city council’s

district plan, it will need an

additional 1057 parks by 2023.

The university is also dealing

with student numbers continuing

to rise with enrolments up

seven per cent compared to last

year. As of March, it was sitting

at 16,382 students.

The residents’ association was

looking at options to address

the long-standing issue at its

meeting recently.

Mr Reddiford suggested

Environment Canterbury

decreased the cost of bus

fares for students as well as

encouraging cycling.

Discounted fares for tertiary

students was raised through

ECan’s Regional Public Transport

Plan consultation last year.

The largest proportion – 185

people who responded to the

consultation thought discounted

fees should be provided for

tertiary students.

An ECan spokeswoman

said out of the consultation it

was decided discounted fares

for tertiary students will be

considered in more detail in

future fare reviews – but no time

line was available.

Mr Reddiford said the

residents’ association is also

wanted to find out how often

the car parking is monitored

and receive updates on

enforcement.

Car parking monitoring and

enforcement is undertaken

by UC Security and data on

monitoring was not available.

Ilam resident Peter Harding

said his argument was always

given the Dovedale campus car

parking is always empty why not

make a lower rate for vehicles

parking there.

No decision yet on

resident’s cycleway idea

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NO WORD has been given

yet on whether an idea to put a

major cycle route along the old

Little River branch line railway

will be considered as a viable

option.

In April, Greater Hornby

Residents’ Association

treasurer Ross

Houliston made an

individual submission

proposing the Hornby

section of the cycleway

runs along the old

railway line to meet up

with the Christchurch

Southern Motorway.

The city council is

currently working

through more than

650 submissions

on the proposed

$36 million South Express

Major Cycle route. Currently

the city council is proposing

the cycle route runs from the

Waterloo and Gilberthorpes Rds

intersection through Waterloo,

Hei Hei, Buchanans and

Carmen Rds. The route will also

go through Sockburn, Upper

Riccarton and Riccarton.

The city council is now seeking

feedback on an alternative route

through Elizabeth St until June

12. The consultation is being

undertaken after concerns

were raised that residents and

businesses could be hit hard by

the planned major realignment

of the street to make way for the

cycleway.

But Mr Houliston says if

the city council is consulting

on different routes

through Elizabeth

St, it should also be

consulting on his

alternative route

proposal through

Hornby.

“I believe myself

that when they

are investigating

alternative parts

around Elizabeth St,

they should certainly

Ross Houliston investigate the one that

has been put forward

by me,” Mr Houliston said.

City council acting transport

planning and delivery manager

Sharon O’Neill said Mr

Houliston’s proposal is being

analysed but it won’t comment

on specific submissions.

“Any alternative proposal

will be analysed to see if it is safe

for users, can be constructed

and is along a desired route that

would be used by cyclists,” she

said.

•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

“You just think

life is not about

career or whatever,

it is just about

being happy from

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 - uncoordinated

and

knobbly. That is a pretty good

“I feel so supported. I feel privileged to be part of Ryman”

Margaret Stoddart

Retirement Village’s Clinical

Manager Maya Daniel loves

the inviting village atmosphere

and the welcome she’s received

from residents and staff in her

new role.

Maya started in March at

the Ryman Healthcare village,

located near the Hagley Park

end of Riccarton Road.

She says it is the Ryman

culture that has allowed her to

take on a job where she is both

a clinical manager overseeing

other nurses and staff as well

as someone working actively

with residents. There is so

much support offered by the

wider team and she likes that

everyone is so motivated in

their roles.

“I was condent to take the

challenge, at the time, and

ready for it. But I’ve also had a

boost from Ryman colleagues

here, the Ryman Christchurch

office and even the other village

facilities around Christchurch,

it’s great!” Maya said.

“I feel so supported.

I feel privileged to be part

of Ryman.”

When she arrived in the

country from India in 2012,

Maya was already a trained

nurse, but has since become

a New Zealand Registered

Nurse plus taken on additional

tertiary education in the

healthcare sector.

She has worked in other

healthcare positions, including

as a senior nurse for Nurse

Maude, WesleyCare and

also did some training for

Princess Margaret Hospital.

She decided to put her hand

up for the Margaret Stoddart

role and the challenges it

would bring.

When she rst saw Margaret

Stoddart Retirement Village,

with the residents enjoying

the grounds and village

Margaret Stoddart village resident Marie Edwards and Clinical Manager Maya Daniel.

amenities, she felt the layout

was very homely and inviting.

Many of the residents are

self-confessed garden and

plant fanatics and when they

are chatting away, gardening

is a subject that often comes

up, Maya says. She likes the

fact that many of the residents

within the village are active

and mobile and able to engage

with her on many topics,

sharing stories of their lives.

Care resident Marie

Edwards says she has enjoyed

getting to know Maya and

loves the support she and

other residents get from the

staff at the village. Marie

should know – she had a long

career in nursing and was a

nurse at Margaret Stoddart

soon after the village opened

in 1993.

Marie says Margaret

Stoddart remains a quality

care facility and she is “very

lucky” to have staff like Maya

around her. “It’s a very caring

place. It’s a lovely atmosphere,

it really is.”

Maya oversees the

available medicines and

pharmaceutical supplies in

the village and helps keep

the work allocated amongst

senior caregiving staff.

She is a big fan of the tabletbased

app myRyman Care,

which she says is an accurate

tool that can save a lot of time

when dealing with residents

in need of medical care.

In every care room, a

device with our custom-made

electronic care programme

enables nurses and carers to

see and record information

about each resident. This

award-winning innovation

creates greater efficiencies

and dramatically reduces

paperwork. “It has pretty much

all the information about the

residents, so if I don’t know

much of the background I can

go to it before I speak to the

resident,” Maya says.

“Also, if I’m in the office

and I get a phone call from a

relative to see how the person

is doing on that day, I can just

get to the computer and get the

details of what is happening

on the oor.”

Margaret Stoddart village

provides independent living,

assisted living and resthome

care. Its features include

independent townhouses,

serviced apartments, and

a care centre, all set

amongst beautifully

landscaped gardens.

Maya’s other healthcare

training includes a graduate

certicate in palliative care,

and knowledge of infection

control, which she describes

as part of the health and

safety spectrum.

Maya was brought up in

Kerala in the south of India,

and in her spare time likes

to hunt out books in the

Malayalam language. That

includes bringing books from

overseas holidays to share

within her Christchurch

Kerala community.

With a husband and a young

seven-year-old daughter she

says family life is important

and she is happy to be able

to get quickly to her work

from their home. In her spare

time, she does dress design,

incorporating both Indian

and western fashion, enabling

her to make items for herself

and friends.

Retirement

living and care

at its best!

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.

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.”

Meet Lorenzo Massetti

Our new Sales Consultant at Bupa Parkstone

Retirement Village

Lorenzo Massetti is a face and

name you’re not likely to forget!

With his jovial manner, welldressed

attire, and super friendly

nature, he is bound to put you at

ease the moment you meet him.

Having worked for over 20 years

as a funeral director, Lorenzo

is now looking for a change of

pace. He recounts his time in the

funeral industry as a humbling

and rewarding experience, where

he assisted others during a very

distressing time in their lives.

With extensive experience in

aged care management, Lorenzo

has also worked in a sales

environment but was naturally

drawn back into aged care to use

his key skills of helping people to

make big life decisions.

I am privileged to see

happy and content village

residents, on a daily basis,

who often say to me I should

have done this sooner’

Originally from Dunedin, but

having called Christchurch home

for the past four years, Lorenzo is

no stranger to good old fashioned

Southern hospitality. He prides

himself on his listening skills

and the ability to help facilitate

the transition of moving into a

retirement village with ease.

As Lorenzo begins his new

career here at Bupa Parkstone

Retirement Village, we asked him

what he thought made our Ilam

village stand out. “Independent

living without the worry of

many aspects of owning and

maintaining your own home.

Companionship and community”,

he said.

On Wednesday, 12 June we

are hosting a guest speaker

event at Bupa Parkstone

Retirement Village. Our

speaker will be Forensic

Police Specialist - Senior

Constable Brian Price.

RSVP by 4 June, or call

Lorenzo to find out more.

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

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.

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 sments 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 themselves 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 ST Andrew’s Co lege big

“Tom was a ba s player from

musician,” head of music

Duncan Ferguson said.

“We were delighted to win, but

it was bi tersw et,” he said.

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

planned 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 Jones 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 annual

plans are a l about lo bying the

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments are 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 apartments 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 first 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 this 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 more experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

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

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing is 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

A report said there are two

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

wear in the war.

AN UPPER 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.

from the city council to make a

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’s submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

Mr Mora said the community

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 sments 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 themselves 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.”

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

planned 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 Jones 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 annual

plans are a l about lo bying the

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments are 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 apartments 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

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the planned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lianne 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’s submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l over 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.
