But Mr Pipe disagrees, saying

the planned new pavilion will be

“It’s not what the park is

now it’s dominated by sports.”

Mr Wakefield said city council

Bowing out after 300,000-plus haircuts

• By Claire Booker

WHEN JOHN Thompson was

21, he dreamed of becoming a

hairdresser. Now 50 years later,

with more than 300,000 hair

cuts under his belt, the Redwood

resident still loves it.

But his business on Coppell Pl

in Hoon Hay will close its doors

for good at the end of the month.

The barber shop has been

Mr Thompson’s second home

since 1969, but it’s time to put

the clippers down and the capes

away and enjoy his retirement.

His loyal clients will miss his

friendly nature.

A client of 50 years, Jack

Jordan, 88, said: “He’s just a

damn nice guy.

“A couple of times when I was

crook, or I’d been to the hospital,

he’d come to my house and cut it

for the same price,” he said.

The lease on the building Mr

Thompson has occupied for the

past 50 years has expired, and he

wasn’t given the opportunity to

renew it.

He said when he was first given

the news that he had to be out of

the building within a month, he

was shocked, but said that’s just

the way things go.

The 71-year-old will now retire

after 54 years as a barber.

The barber shop Mr Thompson

occupies was where his hair

was cut as a child, and when he




turned 21, he bought the business

and hasn’t looked back since.

“I remember coming home

from school one day and saying

[to his father] I think I want to be

a hairdresser,” he said.

In September, he would have

marked his 50th year of owning

the business, but he will have to

close the doors just a few days

before the anniversary.

The red leather barber’s chairs

in the shop have been around

since 1956, and Mr Thompson

said he will sell them once the

business closes. Otherwise, his

house will become too cluttered.

In the antique leather chairs,

he has seen many boys argue

with their mum about the length

of hair they want.

“A boy would get shorter

than he wanted, but not as

short as mum was hoping,” Mr

Thompson said.

He’s seen it all in his years of

hairdressing, from short to very

long, and the mullets in between.

Shirley Rd bus stop plan

given nod of approval

• By Matt Slaughter

A PLAN to upgrade a Shirley Rd

bus stop has been approved.

The Papanui-Innes

Community Board greenlighted

the plan, which will

involve the extension of the

existing bus stop outside Shirley

Intermediate School and the

construction of a new bus

shelter beside it to make room

for two buses at a time.

Innes Ward city councillor

Pauline Cotter said she hopes

the upgrades will be completed

by December.

Pegasus Post reported last

month the board delayed

approving the plan and asked if

more space could be created to

move the bus stop and shelter

back to make the facilities

accessible for wheelchair users

and people with mobility issues.

Board members originally

asked if a Ministry of

Education-owned berm space

outside the school could be

used to create the extra room.

But Cr Cotter said this was no

longer necessary as an extra

50cm of space would be

created using city councilowned


Cr Cotter said the board

has taken about five months

to come up with a plan which

satisfied it. She is pleased it has

now been finalised and said the

wait has been worth it to ensure

the extended bus stop and new

shelter will cater for all bus


“I think that it’s going to

look really good for Shirley to

have that, you know, improved,

more comfortable, more fit-forpurpose

shelter and bus stop

. . . there’s some seating and then

there’s room also for wheelchairs

or pushchairs,” she said.

“We want to really encourage

people to use these buses and

one of the ways to do that

is for council to step up and

address our infrastructure




The plan

to extend

an existing

bus stop on

Shirley Rd

and construct

a new bus


beside it will

go ahead.


Environment Canterbury

manager of public transport

strategy, planning and

marketing Edward Wright

said the new stop will help

achieve the goal of ECan’s

regional public transport plan

to increase the frequency of bus


“The Palms is a key suburban

hub on our bus network. The

upgrades to this stop will be

appreciated by the many people

who use it every day. It is the

main stop at The Palms for the

Orange Line travelling towards

the city centre, and the Orbiter

travelling towards Northlands.

The Orbiter and Orange Line

are already high-frequency bus

services,” he said.

Like portals to paradise, Kirsty Nixon’s large-scale paintings invite the viewer to

pull back the ‘fringes’ of our native flora to reveal quintessentially New Zealand

landscapes hidden in behind. Framed by the structural forms of our native

foliage, like cabbage tree leaves or nectar-laden flax flowers, and almost always

with a native bird or two in attendance, unfolding before your eyes could be

an endless coastline, a deep, green cove or perhaps even a glimpse of the far


Kirsty is repeatedly drawn to the New Zealand landscape

in its various guises and while on holiday at the bird

sanctuary island Tiritiri Matangi recently she experienced

a sense of utter peace while watching the bellbirds

flitting about the feeders and hearing their hypnotic song.

Returning home, she became keenly aware of the absence

of native birdsong and thus her new works pay tribute to

the ways in which the melodic voices of our native birds

have the ability to enrich our lives as we navigate daily life.

Based in Auckland, Kirsty has been painting full-time

since 1997, initially in the medium of watercolour but

House of Travel couple

bring home bag full

of windsurfing trophies

• By Jess Gibson


Travel owners have returned

from their trip to Hawaii with

extra luggage.

Annie Crombie, 51, and

husband Terry Beentjes, 53,

each bagged two trophies at

the US Slalom Windsurfing

Nationals in Maui from July


Crombie won the sport section

and was third in the women’s

competition, while Beentjes

was second in both the semi-pro

and men’s 40-59 racing events.

“We’re stoked. We didn’t have

any expectations to be on the

podium,” Crombie said.

Both took part in 24 races

over the three-day event and

had only trained for one week in

the lead-up to the competition.

“We came out of winter and

haven’t windsurfed since February

so it was a hard seven days.

I got blisters all over my hands

and feet,” Crombie said.

She said they stayed fit before

heading over by mountain biking

and doing yoga.

Beentjes almost opted out of

competing after he broke his

thumb the day after the flights

were booked.

“He was only three weeks

out of his plaster when he competed.

Once we got up there the

vibe of the event got a hold of

him,” Crombie said.

The couple had more than

just trophies to celebrate during

the prize-giving – it was on the

same day as their 31st wedding


Crombie and Beentjes have

both been windsurfing since the

early 90s and have competed

in many competitions in New

Zealand and overseas.

Crombie said their two

teenage daughters, Kate and

Emma, have been all “around

the world to windy places.”

Pharmacy offers free prescriptions

plus other valuable services

The large Pharmacy sign can be

seen from Memorial Avenue.

The pharmacists at Healthworks Pharmacy, on the corner

of Memorial Avenue and Ilam Road, say there is a number

of ways customers can qualify for free prescriptions and

they are happy to advise on how they can get these.

They include free prescriptions after 20 items per year

have been dispensed, which applies to the whole family,

and free prescriptions for under-13 year-olds,

“We also send free text reminders to our customers

when their next repeat prescription is due,” says pharmacy

owner Carolyn Oakley Brown. “They just need to text back

‘Yes’, and their prescription will be renewed.”

The pharmacy offers catalogue specials four times a year,

and customers that sign up to their Facebook page will

see other special promotional offers on there too, Carolyn


Healthworks also offers medico packing for prescription

medicines, which makes it easy for people to see what

meds they need to take and at what time of the day.

Another valuable service the pharmacists offer, which

can be especially helpful for people unsure about what

their medications are for, or when and how to take complex

medicine regimes, is the free, one-on-one meeting between

pharmacist and customer.

“We work in conjunction with their doctor, and we

explain everything about the customer’s prescription, how

it works for them, and make sure everything is correct. It’s

great for people who are on several medications,” Carolyn


Healthworks Pharmacy in Ilam has two full-time

pharmacists, two pharmacy interns, three technicians,

who dispense the prescriptions, and one pharmacy retail


Currently located behind the Ilam Medical Centre,

the pharmacy, along with the medical centre, will be

accommodated in a brand-new building due to be

constructed on the same site, with the work expected to

start in 2020.

Superior new magnesium

offers more health benefits!

Magnesium deficiency is widespread with

researchers estimating up to 90% are not

receiving adequate magnesium in their diet.

According to medical researcher Dr. James

DiNicolantonio magnesium deficiency

increases the risk of numerous types of

cardiovascular and other diseases, costing

nations around the world an incalculable

amount of healthcare costs and suffering, and

should be considered a public health crisis.

Some of the typical signs of a magnesium

deficiency are: muscle cramps – especially

in the legs, muscle spasms and twitches,

fatigue, high blood pressure, poor

circulation, sore – heavy or uncomfortable

legs, irregular heart-beat, muscle and back

pain, insomnia, headaches, migraines and

anxiety. Sub-optimal magnesium levels are

also associated with many diseases including

diabetes, asthma, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s,

cardiovascular, ADHD and kidney.

There are many popular magnesium

supplements on the market, however most

use low cost sources of magnesium that are

also poorly absorbed offering little benefit.

Seeing the serious impact on health that

low magnesium levels are having a New

Zealand company “Biosphere Nutrition”

have developed a new magnesium that offers

superior absorption and more health benefits

compared to most other products available.

Biosphere Magnesium has been created to

be the cleanest, most bioavailable magnesium

supplement available. It combines three

types of the most bioavailable forms of

magnesium to create the ideal dose with

optimal absorption. Each serving provides

a therapeutic dose of 400mg elemental

magnesium to help people maintain

optimum magnesium levels. It is also easy

to take as it comes as a great tasting, easy to

mix powder that is also free of binders, fillers

and artificial ingredients. It is flavoured with

a natural lemon flavour and sweetened with

natural stevia and monk fruit extracts and

coloured with a dash of turmeric.

Magnesium Citrate is the first of the three

magnesium’s. Biosphere have used a natural

marine based magnesium citrate as it has a

great absorption rate and mixes well with


Next is Magnesium Lyscinate Glycinate

Chelate a stable magnesium designed to be

the most bioavailable possible as well as easy

on the stomach.

The last is Di Magnesium Malate a

fantastic form of magnesium for people

suffering from fatigue, since malic acid is

a vital component of enzymes that play

a key role in ATP synthesis and energy


Optimal magnesium levels have been

shown to: Improve Energy, Improve

Sleep, Normalise Blood Pressure, Control

Inflammation, Reduce Pain, Regulate Blood

Sugar, Stop Cramping, Support Normal

Nerve and Muscle Function, Support Healthy

Bones and Help Maintain Good Health.

Biosphere Magnesium and further more

Baby gear to hire or buy

The arrival of a new baby in the family is exciting for

everyone, and it’s a time when special things are

needed to keep baby safe, comfortable and happy.

Offering a wide selection of baby gear for hire and sale, Baby on

the Move in Wairakei Road is the specialty store where parents and

grandparents will find quality products for baby, right from birth,

including infant capsules for babies up to six months old, car seats,

portacots, regular cots, buggies and toys.

The child restraints that are hired are well-known brands and

are well-maintained, with every customer receiving personalised

service at Baby on the Move.

As qualified child restraint technicians, business owner Jane and

her two staff members will advise on hiring the correct capsule or

car seat for the type of car and the customer’s lifestyle, explain how

to use it, and fit it into the vehicle.

Correct installation of the car seat is vital, while having enough

leg-room for the front-seat passenger is also important, Jane says.

“Our short-term car-seat hire is popular with grandparents, who

have family visiting,” she says, “and they often pick up their hired

seat on their way to the airport. We have many repeat customers

who use this service and we get good feedback on it.

“Installation of carseats hired or purchased from Baby On The

Move is always free,” Jane adds.

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

years ago, and the Wairakei Road store is one of two in Christchurch.

It is located at 515 Wairakei Road, close to Roydvale Avenue.

Get rid of

dampness in

your house

The facts about

Home Ventilation

Balanced Pressure

vs Positive Pressure

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

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.
