campaigner

to stand

in council

elections

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A KEY figure behind the

successful campaign to save

Denton Park has confirmed he will

be standing to represent Hornby at

the city council table.

Former Save Denton Park chairman

Mark Peters

will be running

independently

against longterm

city councillor

Jimmy

Chen in the upcoming

October

elections.

In 2016, Cr

Chen secured

Mark Peters

the Hornby seat with a 2440 majority

vote over his closest opponent

Sara Harnett-Kikstra.

But Mr Peters said he is not concerned

about running against Cr

Chen, who is currently in his third

term at the city council.

“I stand very much on my track

record – what happened around

Denton Park and my ability to pull

the community together,” he said.

Mr Peters played a key role in

leading the successful campaign to

stop the Hornby Library, Customer

Services and Recreation and Sport

Centre from going to Denton Park.

THE LOCAL body elections continue to

heat up with Mark Peters announcing he is

standing for the city council (see page 1).

Peters has his eyes set on the Hornby

Ward seat, held by long-time councillor

Jimmy Chen, who is seeking his fourth term.

Chen will be a tough nut to crack. He is a very good campaigner,

who gets out and door-knocks. Winning three elections

is no mean feat; it is testimony to his support.

But I think he might have a fight on his hands this time. There

was huge public support in Hornby for the Save Denton Park

campaign.

Peters will use that as platform for obvious reasons.

Looks like we will get a contest and that’s good for all.

Pool hours could be extended

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THOSE HOPING to catch an

early morning swim over the

summer in Halswell may have

their wish granted.

The Halswell-Hornby-

has asked the city council to

investigate a number of options

for extending

the Te Hāpua

Halswell pool’s

hours.

A seminar

on extending

the pool hours

Anne

Galloway

was held with

the board last

Tuesday.

City council

staff are still finalising options

for the pool’s opening hours.

One of the options, raised by

city councillor Anne Galloway,

suggested the pool opens

from 6am-6pm on weekdays

excluding Fridays. On Fridays

the pool would be open from

6am-9pm.

On weekends, she would like

to see the pool open from 9am-

9pm.

The hours of the summer pool,

which will re-open in November,

are currently 11.30am-7pm.

Study into crossing safety

•From page 1

NZTA senior traffic and safety

engineer David Scarlet said the

feedback has been mixed, but

school children and people operating

the crossing near the school

feel safer.

But he said there have been a

number of issues raised by residents

and road-users following a

survey carried out by NZTA.

This includes there already being

limited options to join onto

Halswell Rd and increased journey

times and distances.

Mr Scarlet said the pilot layout

will stay in place until a permanent

solution is made because

it offers an improved degree of

safety for school children.

Daily traffic counts show about

11,500 vehicles use Halswell Rd

(in the vicinity of Larsens Rd)

daily.

While no crashes have

been recorded at the

intersection in the last five

years – a minor and noninjury

crash was recorded

about 20m north of the

junction.

Halswell School principal

Stuart Cameron said

the school was “really

pleased” in how the trial

has made the crossing safer for

pupils to use.

His views were backed by

BUSY ROAD: This week the New Zealand Transport Agency will

be discussing with residents and stakeholders near Halswell

School permanent solutions for the Larsens Rd/Halswell Rd

intersection.

Halswell resident Melanie

Rushton, who created the petition,

saying there has definitely been an

“improvement.”

But she said equally

it has caused some

other issues including

vehicles performing U-

turns where Halswell Rd

meets with O’Halloran

Dve.

Ms Rushton, who has

a son at the school, said

before the trial was put

in place, the junction

was becoming more dangerous

every day.

“I have seen two or three near

Stuart Cameron

misses at that intersection with

children crossing the road on

their own. I have seen cars driving

really atrociously through that

crossing as well,” she said.

Ms Rushton recalls witnessing a

“terrifying” moment when a child

was almost hit while trying to use

the school crossing when a van

failed to stop.

City councillor Anne Galloway

said the important thing is the

safety issue is being addressed.

She said before the restrictions

were put in place, vehicles turning

right out of Larsens Rd were

turning directly into the school

crossing.

•From page 1

Out of the campaign, the

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association was formed, which

Mr Peters is a member of.

Mr Peters believes he has a

good chance at winning against

Cr Chen.

“I take my hat off

of issues in good stead

“The October count

Hamill offers first-hand history lesson

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MOMENTOUS: Villa Maria College student Brooke Harrison

had a history lesson to remember when she met Rob Hamill. ​

WHEN BROOKE Harrison first

began studying the Cambodian

genocide, she never expected she

would meet the New Zealander

whose brother was tortured and

killed by the Khmer Rouge.

It was a momentous history

lesson for the Villa Maria

College student, who had the

opportunity to Rob Hamill, a

former New Zealand international

rowing representative. His

achievements include winning a

silver at the 1994 World Rowing

Championships and a Commonwealth

Games gold.

While researching the assignment,

she came across

documentary Brother Number

One, which tells the story of Mr

Hamill’s older brother Kerry,

who was killed by the Khmer

Rouge in 1978 after accidentally

straying into Cambodian waters

on his yacht.

The genocide was carried out

by the Khmer Rouge regime

under the leadership of Pol Pot.

Between 1975 to 1979 it was estimated

1.7 to two million people

were murdered.

Wanting to find out more,

Brooke, 17, decided to email

Hamill – and to her surprise received

a reply in about one hour.

Hamill happened to be travelling

through the city on June 5

to Methven and arranged a time

to meet with Brooke.

Brooke said it was inspiring

how open and willing Hamill

was to share his story about his

brother.

“He revealed that is how he

got into rugby and eventually

rowing which he became very

successful at. I’m very grateful

that I got the opportunity to talk

to someone so closely related to

such a horrific event,” she said.

Brooke wanted to study the

genocide after her mother,

aunt and grandparents went to

Cambodia several years ago and

had came back “shocked” and

“moved” by its history.

She said what stuck with her

most from studying the project

was how severe the genocide was

and yet not something people

know a lot about.

“I couldn’t comprehend

how violent and torturous the

genocide was which is why it is

even harder to stomach that one

of our own was killed there,”

Brooke said.

She asked Hamill questions

about what it was like to testify

against Kang Kek Lew, the former

leader in the Khmer Rouge

movement, how he coped with

losing his brother and the response

his family received from

the community.

“Going into it I was actually

quite nervous to talk to him

about it because the last thing

I wanted to do was make him

feel uncomfortable . . . but as he

started talking I realised he was

really open to talking about it,”

Brooke said.

Since researching the project,

Brooke has come to the realisation

of how important learning

about history is.

“What I have learnt from

studying this project is how easy

it is for people to turn a blind

eye to something that seems so

distant from them . . . it wasn’t

until meeting with Rob I realised

how close to home the genocide

really was”.

School projects in community spotlight

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THERE IS no savvier generation

when it comes to using social

media than a generation of

millennials.

That is why instead of Riccarton

High School staff desperately

trying to maintain an online

presence, it was better for the

students to do the job instead.

Two years ago, the school

established a media and advertising

division – which is aimed at

informing, celebrating and promoting

to the community what

is happening at the school.

From the formation of the

group, one of the popular media

ideas to form is the Humans of

Riccarton.

Based on the famous photoblog

Humans of New York, the

blog of students aims to celebrate

and share thoughts, opinions

and stories of Riccarton High

School students.

Deputy principal Lisa Heald

and teacher in charge of MAD

said it was just one of the social

media platforms the students do.

The students between the years

of 11-13 run the school’s Facebook,

Snapchat and Instagram

page.

They produce articles for the

school’s newspaper, organises Ka

Grace Ward: I don’t believe in holding something against

someone because what happens happens and people

should just move on. There is no point in dwelling on things

and holding it against yourself or other people so you should

move on from it because life is too short to hold grudges

against people. I think it is much better to focus on yourself

and the people around you.

Orion Chau: I really like people that give first and continue

to give without expecting anything in return. I think wanting

to help is just basic human nature, and you feel so much

happier when you help someone, when they are happy so

are you. People I look up to are the people who just don’t

care about what people think. Once you start caring you

begin to limit how far you can go, your goals are no longer

yours but the people around you. If you want something

make it happen. ​

really grow as a person.

Therese Yamit: There are three things that I feel are

important in life. Family, friends and passion. Family because

they are always there to tell me what to do or not do and

they are always there for me, friends because the company

you get from them that makes you just forget about other

Bid to crack down on ‘cruising’ delayed

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

HELEN BROUGHTON’S bid

to crack down on anti-social

behaviour around Deans Ave has

been pushed back again.

The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton deputy chairwoman

withdrew her formal motion

calling for increased police

enforcement of “cruising

behaviour” on the avenue.

Mrs Broughton opted to use

the term “cruising behaviour”

after board chairman Mike

Mora raised concerns about the

term “boy racer”.

Mr Mora said the city council

has a “no cruising bylaw” in

place, not a “boy racer” bylaw.

At last week’s board meeting,

Mrs Broughton removed her

motion so it could be re-worded

to allow the board to talk to

police directly about cruising

behaviour in the area, as well as

security concerns once the police

presence around the mosque is

reduced.

In her original motion, Mrs

Broughton only asked the

board to write to police about

its concerns over cruising

behaviour.

Her amended motion will now

be brought back for the board

to discuss at its next meeting on

June 26. Mrs Broughton’s first

attempt to have her formal

motion on “cruising behaviour”

approved was made on May 28,

but the board agreed it would

stay on the table until its June 11

meeting.

However, in her updated

motion, Mrs Broughton wants

the board to talk to police

about their security plans.

She said she wants to raise the

issue because the board wasn’t

invited to a meeting between

Deans Ave residents, Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods, police and a

city council representative on

June 6, in which a range of

security concerns were discussed

regarding police lifting their

presence.

Said Mrs Broughton: “We

weren’t there at that meeting.

PUSHED

BACK: A

formal

motion

aiming to

crack down

on anti-social

behaviour

around

Deans Ave

will be

changed.

Therefore if the police are talking

about security issues we want

that to be part of our discussion

with them.”

Canterbury Metro Area

Commander Superintendent

Lane Todd would not discuss

their security plans.

But he did say the police

presence outside the mosque

will remain in place for the

foreseeable future.

Retired ‘musketeers’ still helping

• By Jess Gibson

A TRIO of retired friends –

dubbed “the three musketeers”

– were recognised for their

services to Ronald McDonald

House on Monday.

David Chappie, of Avonhead,

Neil Fleming (Ilam) and Gus

Gale (Belfast), all former

teachers, received an award

from Volunteering Canterbury

for their work over the past five

years.

They meet every Wednesday

morning to help with a range

of tasks at Ronald McDonald

House on Cashel St, such as

keeping the grounds tidy,

fixing toys, washing waste bins,

plumbing and electrical repairs.

Said Mr Chappie: “I was

surprised because we certainly

don’t come here to look for any

accolade, we come here because

it’s a worthwhile organisation

that we have heard about that we

could help at ground level.”

“The people here are so

accommodating and making

everyone feel so welcome. The

families are going through a

tough patch in their lives but

there’s a joy all the way from

the staff to the mums and dads

and the kids being picked up

and cuddled. There’s a quality

here I don’t think you would

find in many other institutions.

It’s a quality based on love

and concern for one’s human

beings.”

Ronald McDonald

House offers support and

accommodation to families with

children in hospital.

The three musketeers’ shared

background in education adds

up to a total of more than 120

years at primary, secondary and

university level.

VOLUNTEERS: Friends

and former teachers David

Chappie, Neil Fleming

and Gus Gale meet every

Wednesday to undertake

odd jobs at Ronald

McDonald House.

Said Mr Fleming: “In those

years we have accumulated

some useful skills that Ronald

McDonald House finds helpful.”

Mr Fleming started

volunteering to use up his excess

energy.

Mr Chappie and Mr Gale

agreed to help “on one

condition” – after each

morning’s work they go out for

lunch and a beer.

“We decided to set a pseudochallenge

by limiting our choice

of lunch place to new or recently

changed venues. We range

widely with a requirement that

the selected venue has to serve

beer and it has to be new to us,”

Mr Fleming said.

He said each lunch is spiced

with recollections from their

friendship, which has lasted at

least 10 years.

“Some (stories) stray from

the truth but have greater

entertainment value,” he said.

New gender

neutral loos

for students

• By Tatiana Gibbs

THE SOUTH Island’s largest

high school will soon have a

gender neutral bathroom.

Burnside High School is

following a nationwide trend

of being inclusive by planning

a gender neutral toilet facility,

which is due to be completed

next month for use in term three.

Principal Phil Holstein said

the move was in response to

students who wanted a gender

diverse space where they feel

comfortable. The new bathroom

will be in the school’s central

block.

“This is a big step for us in

order to acknowledge and

recognise our gender neutral

students,” Mr Holstein said.

Burnside High follows

Beckenham Primary School

and Lincoln High School,

which also have gender neutral

bathrooms.

The trend has been supported

by the Ministry of Education,

which has funded the facility at

Burnside High. The school has a

total roll of about 2500 students

and has a LGBTQ+ club, which

has been in place for four years.

Teacher in charge of the club

Karen Healey said Burnside

High has students who feel

“uncomfortable using bathrooms

that don’t match their gender

identity.”

Burnside High

Irish dancer’s

work pays off

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

EMME Stephenson (right)

dreams of one day travelling the

world with an international Irish

dancing company.

Since she was seven, the

Burnside High School student

has been in love with the unique

dance form – and when she is

not at school she spends her time

training.

The hard work is beginning

to pay off, with Emme, 13,

selected to attend the Australian

International Oireachtas Irish

Dance Competition on the Gold

Coast next month.

It will be Australia’s largest

Irish dancing event, attracting

more than 800 competitors from

all over the world and up to 600

spectators each day.

There are three rounds in each

competition – a hard shoe round;

light shoe round; and recall

round for the top dancers of the

competition.

It won’t be the first time

Emme has taken part in the

competition; she qualified to

compete last year.

While she didn’t make the

recall round last time, she was

listed as New Zealand’s top

dancer in her age group.

Although New Zealand’s Irish

dancing scene is small, Emme,

who attends the Swarbrick Irish

Dance school, aims to make a big

name for herself nationally and

internationally.

“I love doing it. I just

find it really fun to do. I like

competing and the friends that

you meet. It has pretty much

taken over my life,” she said.

She was ranked fifth in the

New Zealand National Irish

Dance Championships for

her age group last year, which

qualified her for the Australian

competition.

In 2017, Emme represented

New Zealand, along with a team

of dancers, at the World Irish

Dancing Championships in

Dublin and finished 34th.

Her next goal is to compete at

an international competition in

solo dancing.

Her mother Pip Stephenson

said Emme is determined, hardworking

and committed to going

as far as she can in Irish dancing.

She said dancing has taught

her time-management and selfdiscipline,

which has helped her

to achieve good results at school.

Your Local Views

‘Helping neighbours meet’

Delamain Residents’

Association chairman Geoff

Holland writes about how

you can get involved in the

community and the impact

work at the Yaldhurst Park

Subdivision is having on the

area

GET TO know your neighbours

– they are nice, friendly people.

Swap telephone numbers.

If you know they are away,

keep an eye on their property,

perhaps feed their pets.

Plants have been stolen from

front gardens in Delamain, so

keep watch for any suspicious

behaviour – and report it.

To help neighbours meet, we

hold successful neighbourhood

week barbecues in Delamain

Park.

A community beautification

project is also being set up to help

maintain the special features of

our area, such as the “gateways”

at Little Oaks Drive and Jarnac

Boulevard, the monoliths

under the transmission lines on

Buchanans Rd and the fringes of

the Paparua Stream.

We started by removing the

sign on Jarnac Boulevard which

had been tagged. We are also

planning an inspection in the

next few weeks to identify issues.

Keep an eye out for a notice

about this – you are very

welcome to participate.

Let us know if you are keen

by emailing delamain.residents.

association@gmail.com.

And make sure you read our

newsletter. We also send out

email notices on city council

matters that affect us, and

weather and road condition

warnings from Neighbourhood

Support. If you would like to get

these, email me and you will be

added to the list.

One issue to consider is how

work at the Yaldhurst Park and

Buchanans Rd subdivisions

CONCERNED:

The Delamain

Residents’

Association is

concerned work at

the Yaldhurst Park

Subdivision may

negatively impact

on the area.

PHOTO: MARTIN

HUNTER

may negatively affect Delamain.

It is not appropriate for trucks

involved in the work to use

Jarnac Boulevard.

The size, noise and dust are

not appropriate for a residential

street, and traffic safety could be

compromised.

If you have any issues or

concerns over this, let us know.

We also highlighted the

fire risk of the long grass over

summer and a developer mowed

much of it.

An issue with parking on

our narrow streets has been

raised too. The rubbish trucks

have difficulty getting through

Delamain.

It’s not a major issue, but

in the event of a fire, the

consequences could be serious.

Think about how you park, as

marking no stopping areas could

seriously affect the amenity of

your street.

Fendalton centre may

get more services

• By Jess Gibson

THE FENDALTON Library and

Service Centre may soon be a

one-stop shop.

The city council is considering

expanding the service centre

to offer postal services, bill

payments and Metro card

purchases.

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

chairman Sam MacDonald

requested the upgrade as the

building is currently receiving

$1.1 million in renovations to the

interior and exterior.

“When you’re spending money

to redo the library like that, we

should do it right.”

The building is set to reopen

on July 29.

Since the closure of the

Fendalton Post Shop in 2015, the

centre has been providing basic

postal services.

“There are five schools within

close proximity to the library,

including two large secondary

schools – Burnside High School

and Christchurch Boys’ High

School. (The community board)

believe that having the option to

purchase Metro cards from the

service centre would be of great

convenience to our residents,”

he said.

“We are also conscious of the

needs of our older residents, who

often prefer to pay their bills in

person rather than online.”

CONVENIENCE: Sam

MacDonald has asked

the city council to look at

expanding the services

offered at the Fendalton

Library and Service Centre.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

A response from chief

executive Karleen Edwards said

the city council is in discussion

with NZ Post about providing

bill payment services within the

Fendalton area.

“Proximity of other NZ Post

plus centres and customer

demand are considerations that

they will investigate further,” she

said.

An update is expected by the

end of the month.

Dr Edwards said the city

council is also in discussion with

Environment Canterbury over

Metro card services to cover

gaps in coverage.

“Further work is under way

to identify high demand areas

and the development of an

appropriate rollout strategy.”

New zones to inspire

AS THE WAY we live changes,

Events manager Lisa Lynch says

she is excited about two

new zones which have been

how you wish to feel in your

space,” she says.

“It will showcase the latest in modern,

urban, cosmopolitan home and

landscape designs to transform your

space – inside and out.”

This zone will include an

interactive, innovative living

design area, where you can sit

and have a coffee and be

inspired by new and creative

ideas for your home, by talking to

the specialists about your dreams.

THE FIGHT to end period

poverty is under way.

The Fill-a-Bag fundraiser

for The Good Fund is being

held in 16 locations nationwide

throughout June.

Kimberli Schuitman, cofounder

of The Good Fund, is

hosting the Christchurch event

from 2-4pm on June 22 at the

Landsdowne Community Centre.

Ms Schuitman said the

fundraiser pulled together two

things that were extremely

important to her.

“Period poverty is rife in New

Zealand and by talking about

it we can break down taboos

and create an awareness around

this cycle of poverty that keeps

children from achieving their

learning milestones. It is about

ensuring menstruating people

in New Zealand have easy and

affordable access to sustainable

and more comfortable menstrual

products,” she said.

She said The Good Fund was

seeking donations of children’s

clothing that would be given to

families in need.

It was also looking for bags

recycled from online grocery

orders that would be given on

arrival to fill with baby clothes.

“The fundraiser is an

Dual role for

important event in bringing

together to share baby clothes,

in our community,” said Ms

Schuitman.

Due to the success of the

first Fill-a-Bag in Hamilton in

March that raised over $3000,

Schuitman is hoping for similar

success in Christchurch.

All proceeds raised will go

towards The Good Fund that

helps New Zealand women

nationwide have a choice to

access and be educated on reusable

sanitary products. There,

women can buy sustainable

sanitary products or apply for

a Good Fund rebate to get discounted

products.

Entry is $10 and everyone is

to grandparents, Ms Schuitman

said. There will be a lot of

as an information table about

reusable menstrual products.

Plenty of restrings to his bow

• By Gordon Findlater

TONY RALFE was recognised

for 51 years of involvement

at the Bishopdale Tennis

Club by receiving the Ian

Jones Memorial Award at the

Canterbury Tennis Awards.

Ralfe, who is approaching 70,

has been made a life member by

Bishopdale, Wilding Park and

Canterbury Tennis. For almost

34 years he has also owned and

operated a sports shop at Bishopdale

Mall. However, he is currently

trying to sell Bishopdale

Sports World with the idea of

taking to the road with his tennis

racket stringing machine.

“I’ll just keep a stringing

machine and trot round the

country and Wilding Park,

picking up the odd thing when

there’s a tournament on,” said

Ralfe.

“In smaller places like

Greymouth or Kaikoura

if you break a string on

Saturday morning you can’t

get it restrung, but: “I used

to play veterans and take the

machine with me. You can

restring between games quite

comfortably.”

Ralfe isn’t just accustomed

to doing restrings for talented

juniors and veteran players,

every January he travels to

Auckland for the ASB Classic

where he has serviced rackets

for the world’s best players

including Serena Williams.

SPORT

“I went this year. I may have

had my swansong. I’ve had 15

years up there and I’m getting

too old for it now. The hours are

long and it’s fairly tough work,

but I haven’t fully decided yet,”

said Ralfe.

Silver medal exceeds expectation

• By Gordon Findlater

JUST ONE team practice

the night before leaving for

Mongolia didn’t get in the way

of Ashley Strawbridge and her

New Zealand team winning

silver at the FIBA Under 18 3x3

World Cup.

The 17-year-old Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School basketballer was

part of the New Zealand team

along with Sharne Pupuke-Robati,

Tayla Dalton and Charlisse

Leger-Walker who outdid expectations

to reach the final of

the tournament in Ulaanbaatar,

Mongolia, before falling to the

United States.

“I’m still riding the high, it’s

been really cool to have people

at school ask about and be able

to share the experience,” said

Strawbridge.

The team had next to no

experience playing 3x3 basketball,

but were selected on their

strengths from the five-aside

game which would translate

well to the high intensity 3x3

format.

New Zealand, seeded 15th,

went into the tournament

with little expectation in the

20-strong World Cup.

However, they finished

second in their pool with wins

over Hungary (16-9), Russia

(14-2) and Poland (21-4). Their

only pool loss came against the

United States 11-20.

“The fact we got to the quarter

ACCOMPLISHMENT: Ashley

Strawbridge has returned

from Mongolia with a silver

medal from the FIBA Under

18 3x3 World Cup ​

finals was amazing in itself,”

said Strawbridge.

In the quarter-finals they

SPORT

defeated Japan 14-12 in an extremely

tight match which went

to overtime. The win set up a

semi-final with No. 1 ranked

China, which New Zealand

swept aside 21-15 before going

down to the United States 13-

19 in a more than respectable

performance.

“When we first played them

we were like: ‘Oh my god we’re

playing America’,” said Strawbridge.

“In the final we knew we had

no pressure and all eyes were on

them.”

Strawbridge’s biggest contribution

to the Kiwi effort came

on the defensive end which saw

her touted as one of the best

defensive players at the tournament.

She says the biggest challenge

came against the United

States.

“They are just so quick, so it

felt really good any time you

could stay in front of them and

stop them from scoring,” she

said.

Strawbridge will now

turn her attention to

representing New Zealand

in the five-a-side game at the

Oceania Championships in

Noumea, New Caledonia, from

August 19-24.

Lawson establishes

bowling team of Saints

• By Gordon Findlater

HORSE AND Jockey owner

Gary Lawson will headline

Christchurch’s new Bowls3Five

team the Elmwood Saints.

The Saints will take on seven

other clubs from around New

Zealand over eight weeks of

competition in Auckland starting

in October. The competition will

be broadcast live on Sky Sport

three nights a week.

Last year Lawson was part of

the Sky commentary team during

the competition. However, with

the competition expanding from

six to eight teams and Sky signing

up to broadcast it for another

three, he’s now opted to put

together a team of his own.

“I went to the [Elmwood]

committee and said I’d like to put

a team together. They were right

behind it, so we put our proposal

together,” said Lawson.

Joining Lawson will be Mandy

Boyd, Jan Shirley, Steve Ditford,

Lance Pascoe and Bev Morel –

who is in her late 70s. Two further

team members will be named

before the competition begins.

“It’s great for our sport having

prime time TV three times a

week. We can’t ask for much

more, it’s what the game’s needed

for a long time,” said Lawson.

“The idea for us is to have a real

good crack at the title.”

Last year Canterbury rugby

and former bowling world

champion Gary Lawson.

icon Alex Wyllie was part of

the Woodend Jets team with

Na Katae and Jenny Anderson.

However, the team went winless

during the competition which

saw them relegated.

“The idea of the whole thing

was to show people who don’t play

bowls that it’s a game anyone can

play . . . I think this year they’re

trying to strengthen some of the

sides to make them just a little

more competitive,” said Lawson.

The name Elmwood Saints

was inspired by Elmwood Park

Bowling Club’s amalgamation

with St Albans-Merivale. Lawson

hopes the club’s members and

Christchurch people will rally

behind the team.

Lawson is currently in Australia

where he will represent the

Blackjacks at the Asia Pacific

Championships on the Gold

Coast from Tuesday to June 28.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Dilo Oil

the remarkable

skin rejuvenator

Until Rachel Hunter’s popular TV

series “TOUR OF BEAUTY” Dilo Oil was

relatively unknown being one of the bestkept

secrets of the Pacific Islands. It may

however be the number one natural beauty

oil available as it possesses powerful natural

skin regeneration, anti-aging and healing

properties.

According to ethnobotanist Chris

Kilham, Dilo (pronounced dee-low) Oil

is a powerful skin regenerator as it is one

of the most effective agents in promoting

the regeneration and formation of new

tissue, thereby accelerating wound healing

and the growth of healthy skin. Dilo Oil

is super-absorbing and nourishing and

can penetrate all three layers of the skin,

offering exceptional cell hydration and

regeneration. As well as this, Dilo Oil has

potent anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial,

antifungal and antioxidant properties.

Traditionally, Dilo Oil is used to keep

the skin young and youthful and for just

about any skin complaint. Some of the

conditions for which it is considered

helpful include abrasions, cuts and cracks,

acne and acne scars, pimples, blemishes,

stretch marks, wrinkles, blisters, burns

(including chemical and radiation),

diabetic sores, rashes, shaving irritation,

dry or scaly skin, eczema, psoriasis,

dermatitis, herpes sores (cold-sores), insect

bites and stings, rheumatism, pain, sciatica,

shingles, sunburn, rosacea, athlete’s foot,

skin eruptions, warts, skin ulcers and sores,

nappy rash and almost any other skin

ailment and often with incredible results.

Many beauty and skincare products

on the market today contain unnatural

ingredients that can be toxic and may even

contribute to disease. Generally the benefits

are exaggerated and often only temporary

or camouflage. Marshall’s Dilo Oil is 100%

pure and certified organic. It has been coldpressed

from the Dilo nut and contains

absolutely no additives. Polynesians and

Southeast Asians have revered Dilo Oil for

centuries believing it to be a sacred gift of

nature and the Gods. Dilo Oil contains a

unique blend of fatty acids that stimulate

and supports the skins natural healing

process through the growth of new healthy

skin tissue. It is a remarkable product we

highly recommend to everyone. A 50ml

bottle is $19.90 and 100ml only $32.50.

the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s

Health & Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview

Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757.

NATURAL HEALING & BEAUTY OIL

As seen on Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty

Revered for centuries by Polynesians & Southeast Asians for its remarkable skin

anti-aging & healing properties, Dilo oil comes from the nut of the sacred Dilo

tree, “the tree of a thousand virtues”. Dilo oil is often called the beauty oil as it

can penetrate all three layers of the skin offering exceptional cell hydration &

regeneration. It has a unique ability to stimulate the growth of healthy skin cells

& this gives it powerful anti-aging & healing properties that can help reduce

lines, blemishes, scars & damage to the skin. It also possesses

anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal & antioxidant properties.

Dilo Oil Supports

• Anti-aging & skin regeneration, helps reduce lines,

blemishes, scars & stretch marks GREAT GIFT

• Skin hydration

• Skin repair & growth, helps feed the skin & stimulate healthy new cells

• Wound healing & skin protection from bacteria, viruses & fungus

Inflammation

an underlying factor in just about

every chronic health condition!

Inflammation can have a major impact

on our health and quality of life. It is a

sign our body is aggressively trying to

protect and heal itself. Common signs of

inflammation can be redness, pain, heat,

swelling and stiffness. Acute inflammation

is the short term inflammation when you

bang your knee or hurt your back. Chronic

inflammation is a disease that can affect

our overall health and life expectancy.

It is conditions like arthritis, allergies,

asthma, inflammatory bowel disease,

eczema, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s and

in fact most diseases. An example of the

seriousness of chronic inflammation is that

inflammation in the arteries causes plaque

to build up in the arteries that leads to

hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis.

If this plaque continues to build it reduces

blood flow to the organs. This causes blood

pressure to increase. The next danger

especially with raised blood pressure is

some of the plaque can break off forming

a clot that can block blood flow. These clots

are responsible for the majority of heart

attacks and strokes.

Natural supplements like turmeric

(curcumin), boswellia, Artemisia, omega-3

fatty acids, cider vinegar, magnesium, msm

and vitamin-C can play an important part

in reducing inflammation and speeding the

healing process.

Curcumin is the active ingredient in

turmeric. The problem is there is only a

Inflammation affects our quality of life. It is associated with pain, swelling,

heat, redness & stiffness. Inflammation is a part of most diseases even

the aging process. These diseases include: Eczema, Asthma, Allergies,

Cardiovascular, Alzheimer’s, Cancer, IBS, Arthritis, Thyroid, Diabetes &

many more. Natural anti-inflammatories effectively reduce inflammation

at its source while also stopping the initiation of inflammation in the first

place. This leads to a faster more efficient healing process & a better

quality of life.

GOOD HEALTH TURMERIC EXTRA STRENGTH:

Provides powerful natural health & anti-inflammatory support. Excellent for

pain, swelling, stiffness & joint issues. Contains scientifically researched

benefit. Scientists have thru developed

special concentrated supplements that

offer enhanced absorption. CuruWin as

used in Good Health TURMERIC EXTRA

STRENGTH is clinically proven to be

46 times more absorbable than standard

turmeric supplements. It offers powerful

health support.

Boswellia (Indian Frankincense herb) has

been used for centuries in Asian countries

for chronic inflammation and other

diseases including certain cancers. Good

Health TURMERIC EXTRA STRENGTH

contains a potent extract of Boswellia.

Good Health TURMERIC EXTRA

STRENGTH also contains Artemisia annua

or Sweet Wormwood. Artemisia has been

shown to possess anti-inflammatory, antiviral,

antioxidant, antimicrobial, joint and

cartilage support benefits. It is also being

researched for use in cancer treatments as it

has been found to promote apoptosis (cell

death) of cancer cells, without harming

healthy cells.

Omega-3 fish oil also offers powerful

anti-inflammatory benefits without the side

effects of prescription anti-inflammatory

drugs. It also offers numerous health

benefits.

Natural supplements can be highly

beneficial in supporting your good health.

At Marshall’s Health and Natural Therapy

our experienced Natural Health

Advisers can help you choose

the right supplements for you

as everyone is different. We

can advise you on the best

times to take the supplements,

the right dosage and how to

obtain maximum benefits.

We specialise in helping you

correct supplementation, diet

and lifestyle. Often it is the

small changes that can make a

huge difference. Better health

can be achieved naturally.

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.

Does your range

hood suck?

Whether it plain sucks, or whether it

doesn’t suck enough, or even if it is a noisy

sucker - Smooth-Air can help.

Smooth-Air can either improve your

current range hood, or custom build to

your specifications.

“We can take your attractive but noisy,

underperforming range hood and retrofit

it with one of our whisper quiet remote

extraction fans.” says Richard Jack,

Regional Manager of Smooth-Air, “We

have fans which can sit in the ceiling space,

or outside on your wall or roof to make it

extra quiet.”

In-house testing showed a difference of

20dbA (decibels) between a remote fan

from Smooth-Air and a common in-hood

fan range hood. This corresponds to a

quadrupling in perceived noise level.

Range hood conversions include removal

of existing fan and rewiring for new remote

fan. Your local sparky can easily carry out

installation of the new fan.

For kitchens not suited to a standard

range hood, Smooth-Air can manufacture

and powdercoat a bespoke range hood to

match your décor. Custom built range

hoods have the benefit of being designed

specifically for your house.

As well as being whisper quiet, Smooth-

Air’s remote fans are powerful - sucking

out cooking smells and moisture so they

don’t circulate around your home.

Moisture in your home can cause mould

and mildew on your walls and furnishings.

It is also bad for the health of the occupants.

Household cooking is a major source of

internal moisture, therefore an effective

kitchen extraction system can make a

significant difference to internal moisture

levels.

Smooth-Air can also help with other

forms of ventilation, such as bathroom

extraction, condensation reduction or

whole house ventilation.

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH

(0800 766 684) to ask how they can help

you with your kitchen extraction, as well

as any other ventilation requirements.

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this 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.”
