A MAJOR dust-up (puns entirely intended)

in the build-up to the local body elections

(see page 1).

The protagonists are Avonhead

businessman Phil Mauger and the sitting

councillor Glenn Livingstone, who both

want the Burwood Ward seat. Only one can get it.

Mauger has used his clean-up of some of the shingle pile

opposite The Bower near the New Brighton Rd/Wainoni Rd

roundabout as an electioneering platform.

That of course has been picked up in media reports, which have

got reaction from Livingstone, who not surprisingly says it is


That in turn has led to a sharp retort from Mauger, who

appears to be tiring of the constant reference to the fact he lives

outside the ward.

We’ll keep you posted . . .

Home needed for March 15 hearts

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE SEARCH is on to find a

home for thousands of crafted

hearts sent to the city following

the March 15 mosque attacks.

More than 5000 hearts, along

with messages of support,

flooded in from around the

world after Barkers Wool And

Haberdashery manager Jacquie

Jewell established the initiative

Muslim Hearts of Christchurch.

The goal was to collect as many

crafted hearts as possible, made

from knitted, croquet, origami,

mosaic and vintage materials,

to gift to those affected by the


Mrs Jewell has now delivered

3000 hearts, along with copies

of messages, to the Al Noor

Mosque, Linwood Islamic

Centre, police and St John. But

she has about 2000 left which she

is hoping to publicly display.

Initially, Mrs Jewell asked for

permission from the city council

to hang the remaining hearts on

a designated tree in the Botanic


But city council Botanic

Gardens and garden parks

director Wolfgang Bopp said it

wanted to maintain one location

(at the Rolleston Ave tribute wall)

where there was ample space to

lay, stand or hang a tribute.

After bringing the matter to

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board, Mrs Jewell is

now seeking permission to have

the hearts displayed in a city

council facility.

She is looking to place them

on an artificial tree either in the

city council chambers, at the Arts

Centre or the Tūranga library.

Mr Bopp said city council

staff are working to come up

with options for the long-term

display of the hearts, which may

or may not include exhibition

opportunities in city council


Mrs Jewell said while she is

disappointed the city council will

not allow there to be a designated

tree placed in the Botanic

Gardens, she is more excited

about the second option.

“They wouldn’t last as long if

they were outside . . . I am excited

to think they are going to be

inside,” Mrs Jewell said.

She said the display will give

the hearts longevity for all the

city to see.

Mrs Jewell said presenting

the crafted hearts with her two

daughters to the two mosques

was a “moving experience”.

“To walk into them (the

mosques), to know what

happened there, I actually felt

numb . . . it was something I will

never forget,” she said.


Jacquie Jewell

has had more

than 5000

crafted hearts

sent from all

over the world

after creating an

initiative aiming

to show love for

those affected by

the terror attacks.

Election campaigns heat up

•From page 1

Mr Mauger’s comments

come after media reports last

month on the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board’s bid to have

a pile of shingle removed from

a car park alongside the Avon

River near the intersection of

New Brighton

and Wainoni

prompted Mr

Mauger to get

his staff and a

digger to clean

most of it up.

Cr Livingstone said was

“electioneering.” Mr Mauger said

it wasn’t.

But the day after it was cleaned

up, a Maugers Contracting

Interviewed again last week,

Mr Mauger said a staff member

had made the decision to take

the truck to the location.

“I just said to my guy on the

truck, ‘you drive where ever you

like’,” he said.

When asked what he thought

Cr Livingstone would think

of this, Mr Mauger said he

was sick of criticism (from Cr

Livingstone) about the way

he was running his election

campaign, and the fact he lived

outside of the Burwood Ward.

Rather than criticising him,

Cr Livingstone should “do

door-knocking and just do

commonsense electioneering,”

he said.

Cr Livingstone responded to

those comments by saying doorknocking

had played a much

bigger role in his campaign than

criticising Mr Mauger had.

“Maybe he’s just been caught

Thank you for

Fall Zones


To all of you who have had your

trees trimmed before they became

a problem, thank you for keeping all

the families in your community warm,

happy, healthy and connected.

You can be proud of the fact that you have allowed your

neighbours to stay warm, cook dinner and even charge

their mobile phones. You may not have realised that what

you’ve done has had much impact, but from all of us here

at Orion, we just want to say thank you.

Notice and Growth limit zones



Power line voltage A. Growth limit zone B. Notice zone

66,000 volts 4.0m 5.0m

33,000 volts 2.5m 3.5m

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m

We’re not exaggerating.

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.

How close is too close?

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and

preferably the notice zone.

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to

disease or adverse weather events.

Where do I start?

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every

day or part day during which the offence continues.

More info can be found on our website and if

you have any questions or notice any trees

touching power lines in your area, please call

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

(GIPS) and also in scenario writing. These students

were only invited to compete at the international

competition after placing 1st or 2nd in the national

competition in Auckland at the end of last year. This

years’ topic was De-Extinction.

We are happy to report that William Wray, a Year

Burnside High vs Ashburton College Winter

Sports Exchange

The Annual sports exchange was held on Tuesday 18 June.

Overall 7 wins each, but the deciding vote was the Win by Default to Burnside in Senior A Netball. So

the final score was 8-7 to Burnside.

All the teams represented their respective schools with pride and passion, and once again it was

fiercely contested. Ashburton College won the exchange last year 7-5, with limited sports being able

to be played because of the weather/ground conditions in Ashburton. So it was great to have a perfect

day in Christchurch, weather-wise, to play all the outdoor sports.

Congratulations to all participating teams and special thanks to our staff who are either Coaches/

Managers/Teachers in Charge, our outside coaches and managers, and our staff and student officials.

Showquest was held on the 20th and 21st of May

The junior team were lucky enough to win 1st place

costume, drama, props and video wall. The Tikanga

Award is given to the school who has the best

team spirit and attitude towards the staff and other

teams throughout the day so winning this was

definitely a highlight.

The theme was about the loss of arts and we

basically wanted to ask the audience, “What are

we, who are we without The Arts?” and “What will

you do to save the arts?” The arts are a crucial part

of our sense of self and are especially important to

everyone competing so we wanted to highlight this

“Students were given eight

The modules included calculating

Keep your car safe and

on the road this winter

The team at Allan’s Tyre & Auto, Burnside include

fully-qualified, MTA approved and highly-experienced

mechanics who can turn their hand to most types of

vehicle repair and maintenance. Although they are

Mitsubishi specialists with over 20 years experience

between them, they welcome cars of all makes and

models and their friendly team are there to make sure

that all their customers leave in a vehicle that is safe on

Canterbury’s winter roads.

They can give your car a thorough check and their

well-equipped workshop and expertise means that if

your car needs repairs or new parts to pass its WOF,

they can be carried out on-site with as little disruption

to your busy life as possible.

Their focus is on making sure customers leave in a

vehicle that is safe – they provide wheel alignments

which improve handling and fuel economy, service

and repair CV joints, check and replace cambelts, and

will inspect your brakes to make sure they are fully


Winter is a key time to check your car’s battery –

their technicians will use a digital tester to see if your

battery needs to be replaced or how much life is left.

And if you do need a new one, they will recommend

the one that is right for your vehicle.

In short, they can do anything from changing oil

to extend the life of the engine, inspecting your car

exhaust and muffler to make sure it is not leaking right

through to checking, repairing or replacing your car’s

suspension, shock-absorbers and steering.

Although their experience means they can work on

any car, Allan’s Tyre & Auto is the only independent

workshop in Christchurch specialising in Mitsubishi.

That means they are experienced with Mitsubishis of

all models including the newer ones with common rail

diesel and have the latest Mitsubishi Factory Scan tool.

It can code Keyless Entry remotes, Immobiliser keys

and scan your vehicle for fault codes.

Located at 164 Kendal Avenue, the business will

soon be expanding as they continue to welcome

customers old and new. Visit to find

out how they can keep your vehicle safe and on the

Thank you to everyone who contributed ideas and feedback as part of our first phase

of consultation as we plan for our new school.

As well as the online survey, feedback was gathered from Post-It Stations at various

school events and from student House Groups and workshops.

A Community Consultation Report is now with the design team to assist in developing

the preliminary concept design for the new school.

The key findings in the report shows our community would like a new school which:

► Reflects Marian’s Roman Catholic Special Character, values, story and history

► Is inclusive and supportive. For example, reflects and celebrates Māori, Asian and

Pasifika cultures

► Fosters Marian’s family environment and supports small class sizes

► Has designated and comfortable spaces to pray, eat, prepare, teach, learn and be


► Is eco-friendly and sustainable

► Has full-sized, modern facilities designed to be functional and welcoming

► Has plenty of green, leafy space.

The full report is available on the Marian College website.


This term, Marian students have filled paper bags with more than 200

non-perishable food items for Christchurch families in need.

During the July school holidays, Marian students will be working in the

Stanmore Road St Vincent de Paul shop. Please call in with your preloved

gently used clothing and household items and say hi.

Marian College has a long tradition of service. Both students and staff

members are actively involved and contribute positively to the wider

community. All students complete at least six hours of meaningful

service within the school and community, every year.

The tree of LIFE

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times,

new research has shown that neurons

can grow back with the right conditions

and that a special extract of Gingko

Biloba (EGb-761 or TEBONIN) has

been clinically found to assist in this.

The implications for stroke recovery are

obvious, but researchers also know many

of us suffer from undetected “microstrokes”

that over a period of time slowly

reduce our cognitive function. TEBONIN

is prescribed worldwide as a natural

supportive agent for a healthy brain and

cognitive function. It supports healthy

mental performance, concentration, focus,

alertness, motor function and to help

with many conditions including tinnitus

(ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo

and normal balance. TEBONIN improves

micro-circulation and helps the blood

flow reach those critical places it needs to

get. It is a potent anti-oxidant and makes

the red blood cells more pliable and

capillary walls more flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented

multi-step extraction process. Each small

tablet contains a highly concentrated

50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic

clinical dose without having to take a large

amount of the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba

products on the market, and tested by a

major medical journal, only TEBONIN

passed all five of the test requirements.

Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements

and the rest didn’t pass more than three

out of five requirements. TEBONIN is

the only Gingko biloba extract shown

to activated all areas of the brain and is

considered the gold standard in Gingko.

TEBONIN has been trusted by millions

of consumers worldwide for over 30

years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

TEBONIN and further information

Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and

as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.

Scientists at Rush University Medical

Center found those most deficient

in vitamin B12 to have the smallest

brain mass and the lowest scores on

tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration and brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains and score

higher on cognitive tests than those with

lower levels. Yet another recent landmark

study showed that B12 supplementation

slows the accelerated rate of brain

shrinkage and declining cognitive function.

B12 is essential for energy production, cell

health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles,

nerve health and repair, and prevention

of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular

risk factor that is known to cause damage

and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also

increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard

researchers found

a 34% decrease

risk of vision

loss in a study

of participants

aged 40+ who

supplemented with

B12. Another study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb

it declining with age as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication and other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth and

thru bypassing the digestive tract have

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in

the body.

1 Tbsp cornflour

1 cup (260g) natural yoghurt

To serve

Brown basmati rice

Handful roughly chopped

coriander (cilantro)

Lemon wedges


Heat your slow cooker to high.

Trim the fat from the chicken

thighs and discard. Cut each

thigh in half, or into thirds

if large, bearing in mind that

they will shrink as they cook.

Refrigerate until needed.

Put the onion, ginger, garlic

and chilli into a food processor

and process until you have a

chunky paste.

Heat the oil in a large frying

pan over medium heat. Add the

paste and cook for 8-10min,

until the liquid from the onion

has evaporated and the paste

looks dry. Stir through the butter

and cook for a minute until the

butter has melted.

Stir in the chilli powder,

cumin, coriander, garam masala,

paprika and cardamom pods.

Add two tablespoons cold water

and stir to incorporate any stuckon


Stir in the tomato paste and

stock powder, then scrape the

contents of the frying pan into

the bowl of the slow cooker.

Add the crushed tomatoes,

cornflour, yoghurt and chicken.

Give everything a good stir,

nudging the chicken into the

sauce, then cover and cook for

two hours.

Give it a stir, then quickly

cover again to avoid losing too

much heat. Cook for a further

two hours, until the chicken

is very tender and the sauce is

thick. Serve the butter chicken

on brown basmati rice, garnished

with chopped coriander and

lemon wedges on the side.

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

The facts about

Home Ventilation

Balanced Pressure

vs Positive Pressure

Are you struggling with the heat of

Summer or wanting to get organised for

Winter? With the ever changing weather

patterns, heat pumps have the flexibility

of being able to heat and cool which is an

advantage no other appliance can offer. This

represents great value for your investment

as you can use it all year round. The team

at Enviro Master Ltd can help keep you

cool this Summer either at home or work.

Enviro Master supplies, installs and services

all the leading brands including Panasonic,

Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means

our team can show you which system and

brand will best suit your needs.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,

now is a great time to beat the 1st of

July deadline. Inadequate heating and

ventilation can lead to mould growth and

dampness in your property, leading to

costlier maintenance and an unhealthy

living environment. Providing a fixed

heater with a higher heat output and lower

running costs, like a heat pump, will enable

your tenants to heat the area effectively.

It will also discourage them from using

unflued gas heaters which can make a

house damp and mouldy.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for

any repair or damage caused to the system

due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s

five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration

so customers have an understanding on

how it will best meet their needs.

For a free in home consultation, call

Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our

showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd,

Waltham, Christchurch.

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need

to be suitably ventilated, either with

opening windows or forced ventilation.

Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this

provision is to safeguard people from

illness or loss of amenity due to lack of

fresh air.” There are many benefits to forced,

or mechanical, ventilation over opening

windows, including warmth, security,

reduction of outside noises and reduction

of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in

from outside via the roof space and force

the stale air out through gaps around

windows and doors. The incoming air

from these systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm in winter or

cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is a ‘balanced

pressure’ system. It extracts air from the

house and at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air pass through

a heat exchanger, which warms incoming

air in winter and cools in summer if air

conditioning is being used. This means that

up to 80% of the energy which would be

wasted using a traditional positive pressure

system is recovered, resulting in significant

energy savings and therefore lower heating

or cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure

ventilation systems have been considerably

more expensive than traditional

positive pressure systems. However,

with Smooth-Air’s unique

manufacturing capabilities, a

HEX390 balanced pressure system

can be installed for a similar price as

a traditional positive pressure system.

You can contact Smooth-Air on

0800 SMOOTH (0800 766684).

A new house is just the beginning....

52 McCormacks Bay Road, Mt Pleasant

Auction: Thursday 18 July 2019 Unless Sold Prior

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 living room | 2 car-garage | Listing Number: SM0205

Built in 2015, this impressive, architecturally

designed home has been immaculately finished

and created to ensure minimal maintenance

and easy living; allowing you to make the most

of life, creating new adventures and memories!

Solidly constructed by Benchmark Homes

with quality in mind, you will be supremely

cosy here even in the coldest months thanks

to the double glazing, heat-pumps and extra

heavy-duty insulation. Extra large windows

provide dramatic and uninterrupted blue water

views of the McCormacks Bay Estuary and

beyond, allowing an abundance of natural light

and warmth to flood in.

Tastefully decorated throughout, with

superior fixtures and fittings, there are many

extra touches here that make this home so

special and economical to maintain, including

solar water heating and LED lighting. Whether

you are a smaller family, a professional

couple or perhaps looking to downsize from

a larger family home, you will appreciate the

accommodation on offer here. Two double

bedrooms and a full bathroom on the lower

level complement the Master Bedroom with

luxury ensuite and open plan living on the

upper level.

The section is a perfect example of good things

coming in small packages. The 291sqm site is

attractively planted and offers a variety of spots

for you to relax in; enjoy your morning coffee

on the sheltered balcony or take afternoon tea

with your friends and family on the sunny deck

below. Private and fully fenced, this is a very

practical property, with an electric gate opening

to your double internal access garage.

Our vendor has loved their time here, with

so much on offer in the vicinity; the coastal

pathway to Sumner provides easy access to

beaches and the village vibe, the Mt Pleasant

farmers market and community centre is the

place to go for your organic veggies or morning

yoga classes, and the Port Hills and Estuary are

the perfect playground for those who love an

active lifestyle! However our realistic owner is

committed to moving on and has made their

instructions clear - they would love to see this

immaculate home sold on or before auction

day. Don’t risk missing out, come and see for

yourself or call for more details, this may be

more affordable than you might think!

Call for open home details or to arrange

a private viewing – contact Michelle Ward

of Harcourts Grenadier Sumner (Licensed

Agent REAA 2008) on 384 7950 or mobile
