MORE THAN $77,000 has been

spent by the city council on costs

The costs include design

Harewood Community Board has

listened to what the Harewood

community wants and has voted

unanimously in favour of traffic


This recommendation goes

against the city council report,

which said traffic lights were the

least safe option.

The recommendation by the

board has been passed on to the

infrastructure, transport and

environment committee.

The city council staff recommendation

showed the preferred

option was a revised left in/left

out with signalised pedestrian

crossings, which would allow

right turns from Harewood Rd

into Gardiners Rd for all vehicles.

Fun event for Northwood residents

• By Claire Booker

AN EVENING which involved

kicking a ball around with

Canterbury rugby players and

grabbing a bite to eat was held

last week in Northwood.

The event was organised by

AMI insurance, which has been

closely involved with the community

since the Marble Court

explosion last month.

About 50 people attended the

event where free rugby tickets

were provided by AMI, as well

as the chance to meet some

rugby stars.

Canterbury rugby halfback

Mitch Drummond said it was

nice to be able to connect with

the team’s fans.

“It was great to be out among the

community in Northwood and

putting some smiles on the faces

of locals who have been through a

tough time recently,” he said.

AMI spokeswoman Valerie

von Geldern said it was nice to

come together and support the

AMI business development

manager Gary Rennie said

the event wasn’t to do with business.

“This event wasn’t about

insurance, it was just something

nice that we wanted to do for

the Northwood community so

we did. We had a really great

turnout and the parents loved

seeing their kids have so much

fun playing a game of touch

rugby with the Canterbury

players. Just seeing the smiles

on everyone’s faces made it all

worthwhile,” he said.

In Brief


The Papanui-Innes Community

Board has unanimously voted

to recommend the city council

drop the speed limit along Sisson

Drive, Langdons Rd, Restell St

and Winston Ave to 30km/h. The

recommendation was made after

consultation showed 70 per cent

of the submissions made were in

favour of the change.


The dedicated bus and bike lane

project on Main North Rd has now

been put on hold. The city council

was expected to start work in

July, but since then, New Zealand

Transport Agency constraints

have created uncertainty around

funding for the project. The city

council is working with NZTA

to confirm if and when funding

will be available for the project.

NZTA hopes to have an update

on funding in mid-September, but

work on the project will not start

before 2020.


Work is due to start next week

on renewing the wastewater

pipes from Edgeware Rd to 133

Caledonian Rd. The work is due to

begin on Monday and is expected

to be finished by October 12. Work

has also started on upgrading two

well-heads on Mays Rd, and is

expected to be finished by the end

of next month.

FINALS: The Christchurch Girls’ High School team will play

Technical B in the premier 2 final tonight.

Playing for promotion

•From page 1

CGHS head of sport Robin

Brown said the season has been

“very good.”

“The team have taken the

movement from senior 1 and

playing outside, to premier 2 in

their stride,” she said.

Last week, the team faced

off against St Nicholas in the

semi-final of the premier 2 competition,

and scraped by with a

one-goal win, beating St Nicholas


The girls will take on Technical

B in the final tonight at Pioneer

Stadium at 6.30pm, and it is set

to be a tough battle.

Technical B will go into the

final as firm favourites, after

playing the final round of the

competition unbeaten, with a

dominant 25-goal win against

the school team the last time

they faced off.

The winner of the final will

be promoted to premier 1 next

season, and CGHS has not had a

team play in the top grade since

about 2003.

The team has six year 13 players,

and Mrs Brown said losing

their experience will impact the

team next season, but there are

promising young players in the

junior teams.

The team is set to put on a

strong showing at the South

Island Secondary Schools netball

competition next month, sitting

at third place from last year’s


“The success the team have had

will definitely put them in good

stead for South Islands. Having two

consecutive nights of strong netball

competition – club and Super Net,

also helps for tournament play. The

team have great confidence and

belief,” Mrs Brown said.

Signals highest cost option

•From page 1

This recommendation was

the most cost-effective option

at $500,000, but consultation

showed this was the preferred

option by only 18 per cent of


The city council report said

traffic signals was the highest cost

option for the intersection at $1.2

million, but 77 per cent of submitters

voted in favour of the lights.

The report said traffic signals

are four times more likely to

result in fatal or serious injury

than the preferred left in/ left out


The report also said the traffic

signals option is unlikely to be

eligible for New Zealand Transport

Agency subsidy as the left in/

left out options resolves the safety

issues at a significantly lower cost.

This means the city council may

have to fund 100 per cent of the

project cost, which could see a

0.01 per cent increase in rates.


Community Board chairman Sam

MacDonald said he will be disappointed

if a decision is not made

by the city council before the local

body elections.

“This has been three years in

the making. If it was deferred

because it was seen as ‘too contentious

prior to an election’ I think

it would speak volumes as to the

current council’s willingness to

listen to ratepayers,” he said.

Mr MacDonald said the community

board’s role is to listen to

the residents and make a decision

from there, which is why they

went against the city council staff


“The council is owned by

ratepayers, you can have the most

technical advice in the world – but

in the end, if local residents don’t

want the road blocked off and they

want a set of traffic lights, who are

we not to follow their wishes?” Mr

MacDonald said.

Harewood Ward city councillor

Aaron Keown has been a strong

voice in the campaign for change

at the intersection, and he said he

is feeling “over the moon” about

the community board’s decision.

Cr Keown looks forward to seeing

the outcome of the proposal

after the city council make a decision,

but there is no confirmed

date of this yet.

The city council said the report

will come before council before

the elections.

Cr Keown hopes the outcome

of the meeting will reflect the

community board recommendation

and what the public wants,

he said it would be “arrogant

and dangerous” for an elected

member to vote against what the

public wants, especially so close

to elections.

“It would be pretty rude for

any elected member to go against

democracy,” he said.

Ugandan children focus of trip

• By Claire Booker

SORTING PILLS and potions

aren’t the only roles of two

Bishopdale pharmacists.

Next month, co-owners of

the Bishopdale Unichem Pharmacy,

Maria Morley-Bunker

and Amanda Nuttall will go to

Uganda on a volunteer trip.

The trip is organised by the

Entrepreneurial Business School

and the two women will be part

of a 22-person cohort based in

Kyampisi, Uganda.

Ms Morley-Bunker and Ms

Nuttall will be working closely

with the Kyampisi Childcare

Ministries, a not-for-profit organisation.

KCM’s vision is to end child

trafficking in Uganda.

Over the course of the nineday

trip, Ms Morley-Bunker and

Ms Nuttall will help to build a

new rehabilitation centre and

offer support to the children and

families in the community.

Ms Nuttall said the two women

think the trip is important because,

without the volunteers,

KCM would have to find a lot of

money to pay for the work the volunteers

will do over the nine days.

“In the scheme of things, it

may not be a lot, but with the

number of us going, it will

equate to approximately two

The women said dealing with

the trauma the children have

been exposed to will be a big test

as to how they can best care for

and support the children and

their families while balancing

their own emotions.

Ms Morely-Bunker said the

two women have been told the

children in Uganda love learning

about the volunteers’ families.

“We plan to take some short

video clips with us to share, so

the Ugandan children can see

NZ kids, and hear (and hopefully

learn) some New Zealand

songs, in the languages of New

Zealand; New Zealand Sign

Language, Te Reo and English.

We will also be taking over

some netballs, this is a common

link between New Zealand and

Uganda, we both have netball

teams in the top seven in the

world,” she said.

Ms Morley-Bunker and Ms

Nuttall will leave for Uganda in

mid-September, and the trip will

take 30 hours from Christchurch

to Uganda.

Part of the trip will include eye

October elections draw

more candidates than 2016

• By Claire Booker

THE NUMBER of local body

election candidates across the

five wards covered by Nor’West

News has increased compared to

the 2016 elections.

Five more candidates have put

their hands up to represent the

wards on the city council than in

the previous election.

And out of all 16 city council

candidates, only half have put

their name forward for the

community board too.

The Papanui-Innes and


community boards each have

13 candidates running. This is

an increase of six candidates

for the Papanui-Innes board

and an increase of three for the


board, compared to 2016.

In 2016, there were only two

candidates in the running for

From St Margaret’s College

to arts camp in Michigan

IT WAS A busy three weeks at

theatre camp in Michigan for St

Margaret’s College student Lara


Lara applied to the camp

with a recorded audition, and

was offered a place on the

Musical Theatre Golden Age

Revue Summer programme

in the United States town of


The Interlochen Arts Camp

is held annually, and each

year thousands of artists and

arts patrons travel to the US

for world-class education and

cultural opportunities.

Students can study music,

theatre, visual arts, film, creative

writing and dance at the camp.

Over the three-week course,

the students were required to

learn 20 pieces of golden age

musical theatre.

Golden age musical theatre is

considered to be from the 1940s

to the 1950s.

It is a long way from Lara’s

home in Strowan to the camp in

Michigan, and she described the

time away as “busy.”

“Our days were very busy

starting class at 8am then

carrying on to 11.45am,” she said.

The students would then have

a lunch break until 1pm and then

have a practice period, where

they had their own time to go

over dances or harmonies in

songs. The classes would resume

at 2pm and finish at 5pm for a

dinner break. From 6.30-9pm

there would be night practices

and then it was bedtime at


At the end of the three

weeks, the students put on a

performance and Lara was one


SOLO: Lara Chiswell (centre) was one of two girls at the

Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan to sing a solo in the final


of just two girls to perform a

singing solo.

“During my time here (theatre

camp) I learned so much and

made some amazing friends. It

was incredible to be around such

like-minded people. My time at

Interlochen has been the best

three weeks of my life.”

‘The cube’ lands at

Bishopdale pre-school

• By Claire Booker

IT’S ALL fun and games on the

new playground at Bishopdale

Community Preschool.

Last week the pre-school

installed “the cube” – a new

climbing frame.

Centre manager Sarah Straver

said the pre-school has been

through “a bit of a journey since

the earthquakes.”

It moved from a city councilowned

building at Bishopdale

Mall in 2012 to a temporary

Intermediate School.

The pre-school fundraised

for four years and in 2016 a


permanent premises was opened

at Breens Intermediate.

Since then, the pre-school

has been slowly developing its


Ms Straver said fundraising

was a big challenge for getting

the Cube.

“We began with grant

applications to several potential

funders, and the city council

was the first and only funder

willing to help out our learning

community,” she said.

The city council funded $3000,

which left the pre-school needing

to find $8000. In June, the preschool

decided to use its reserve

funds to complete the project.

Working for Firestone

Janet Tillman concludes

her memories of working

in the Firestone factory

office in Langdons Rd in

the 1970s

LUNCH TIME was spent in

the cafeteria; there were two

of these, one for the rubber

workers and the other for the

office staff.

THe segregation was

simply because the factory

workers were covered in soot

(lampblack) and this was

transferred to the furniture

so having separate facilities

enabled the office staff to keep

their clothes clean.

The cafeteria provided excellent

fresh food at reasonable

prices. I can still recall the

sandwiches, savouries and bread

rolls as well as slices and cream


We had little contact with

management or the factory

workers (I can only recall entering

the factory about three times

during the years I worked at


However, at Christmas,

we all socialised together at a

party held at a Redwood restaurant.

During my period at Firestone,

I was able to widen my

work experience in another

role when I was asked to relieve

for the telephone switchboard

operators at lunch times.

Firestone had a PABX system

which required the operators

to answer the phone and then

switch the call to the person

requested. I enjoyed the experience

of taking international calls

in an era when this service was

forbiddingly expensive for New

Zealand consumers.

In 1981 I resigned to have

my first child but three months

later I was invited back to a temporary

position to resume my

former job in the pricing team.

By then, Firestone had invested

in a computer, a piece of

hardware that was so large that

it took up a whole room. Given

that the general manager was

named Clyde, it was inevitable

that the computer was referred

to as Bonnie in reference to a

popular movie of the day.

For a couple of months, we

carried out a check on the accuracy

of the computer by also

running our old manual system

when preparing the monthly

pricing schedule for Firestone


When the computer system

was judged to be operating satisfactorily

my association with

Firestone ended.

On reflection, I thoroughly

enjoyed my five years at Firestone.

CBHS rider brings home world titles

LAURENCE Pithie has

returned home with two

junior world titles after

bursting onto the international

cycling scene.

The Christchurch Boys’

High School student won

rainbow jerseys in the

madison and omnium at

the UCI junior track world

championships in Germany.

It marked an outstanding

campaign for Laurence, who

only recently turned 17 and

will qualify for the junior

worlds again next year.

He started well in his quest

to win the omnium, finishing

fourth in the opening 7.5km

scratch race, before taking on

the tempo race, comprising of

a sprint in each of the 26 laps

after a four-lap start.

“It is my weak link in the

omnium and one I don’t

usually do very well in,” he


But he broke clear to win

10 sprints in a row to claim

the honours and followed up

with a win in the elimination

race, where the last rider is

eliminated every second lap.

“I had a great start in the

points race and collected

points in each of the first

five sprints, and from that

point on it was a case of

just covering wheels. I was

absolutely knackered.”

Laurence claimed first equal

in the points race to finish

with 129 overall.

On the final day of the

championships he paired up

with Taupo’s Kiaan Watts to

dominate the madison, which

attracted 350 riders from 40


The pair finished with 49

points, ahead of Germany on

35 and France on 27, in the

30km race where no team was

able to put a lap on the field.

The New Zealand pair won

the final three sprints to seal

the win.

“Laurence missed the

change with one and a half

laps to go and just put his head

down and went for it,” said

coach Myron Simpson.

“They were in command

throughout. Kiaan rode a

brilliant tactical race and

Laurence was so committed.

They rode perfectly together

and shared the load.”

Volunteers show visitors

our city’s attractions



Showing visitors to many of Christchurch’s

beauty spots, natural attractions, places

of historical interest, and the changing

cityscape as the city rebuilds, is the

task undertaken by the team of 20

knowledgeable and friendly guides at

Walk Christchurch.

All the volunteers thoroughly enjoy

revealing our city’s unique features, many

of which visitors may not discover on their

own, and answering questions on the city

and its people.

Walk Christchurch was established in

1982 as the Christchurch Personal Guiding

Service, and has undergone a number of

changes over the years to meet the needs

of increasing numbers of visitors to the city.

The primary walk is the Classic

Christchurch Walk, a five-kilometre walk

around the central city, which takes

about two and a half to three hours. From

October, a shorter Highlights Christchurch

Walk is also being introduced. This will be

2.5 kilometres, lasting about 90 minutes.

More walks are also planned to meet

different requirements.

The walks are ranked in the top 10 activities

for tourists in Christchurch by Trip Advisor,

and positive reviews are regularly posted

on the Trip Advisor website.

Here is one example:

“Highly recommend booking this walking

tour. My guide was incredibly informed

and passionate about Christchurch, and

it was a pleasure to listen to him speak

about the city he loves. The walk never felt

tiresome, and I got to see all the sights of

Christchurch. Highly recommended!”

The volunteer guides themselves get many

benefits from their guiding activities.

For example, Josie has, over the years

of guiding, developed an interest in our

city – its past, present and future as well

as improving her knowledge of the city

architecture and landscape.

Josie considers herself not just a walking

guide, but an ambassador for the city. She

is often one of the few people that visitors

can meet and talk with over the duration

of the walk.

Craig appreciates being part of an

active, sociable group of walking guides.

He has increased his appreciation of

Christchurch and the guided walks have

taken him to places he had never visited

or known about. Stories about those

places have strengthened his connection

to Christchurch and his knowledge about

what is happening in Christchurch.

Volunteers needed

To meet the growing demand for the

walks, Walk Christchurch is seeking more

volunteers to join the team. Details of

requirements can be seen to the right of

this page.

Ryman’s sales advisor of the year

Marie Kyle-Stevenson is

often seen out and about

in Christchurch as she

makes connections with those

that may want to nd out

about life at Ngaio Marsh

Retirement Village.

At Ryman Healthcare’s 2019

Annual Awards, Marie was

announced as Sales Advisor of

the Year.

She has been at the Papanui

village for 13 years and says

her job all comes down to the

relationships she develops

with people – she calls it

the magic of networking,

adding that building trust

is important.

But Marie is not only about

putting out feelers into the

community. She has a real

passion for nding the right

home for those who are

contemplating village life and

all the benets, including the

security and extra amenities.

Ngaio Marsh has an allweather

bowling green, indoor

heated swimming pool, spa,

atrium, library, gym, hair

salon, bar, shop, a putting

green and a croquet lawn.

“It’s wonderful to see

residents move in and enjoy

what we have on offer,” she says.

The village is in a quiet

but convenient location.

Marie likes to inform potential

residents about the many

benets of village life including

the continuum of care available.

Ngaio Marsh Village Manager Anna Thomson and Sales Advisor Marie Kyle-Stevenson

Some opt for independent

living in townhouses or assisted

living in serviced apartments.

There is also the very best

of resthome and hospital

care. She takes her time to

ensure the initial conversation

with potential residents, really

explores their needs.

“I honestly think that

my success is through

building relationships.” Ryman

villages are built on strong

relationships and ensuring

that residents always feel their

village is home.

She celebrated the win with

other members of the Ryman

team at the company’s recent

annual conference. Marie says

it was a great occasion with

plenty of support from other

team members.

When she talks about Ngaio

Marsh village she reects on

the feel-good factor a village

can provide. A lot of people are

looking for the green space and

walkways our village provides;

the closeness to the local shops

and malls and the sunny aspect

the village homes have.

She hosts community groups

for afternoon tea in the village,

and alternatively can go out to

speak to the members of clubs

at their own facilities.

If someone becomes a ‘friend

of the village’ and regularly

attends events they can get a

real feel for the village before

they move in, she adds.

Marie now feels part of the

fabric of Ryman. She loves

her role building relationships

with residents, potential

residents, and making strong

connections in the community.

Marie enjoys hosting events

at the village and says

being involved in so many

people’s decisions to move

into a retirement village is

very rewarding.

Village Manager Anna

Thomson says it was a great

honour that Marie had been

recognised for the Ryman sales

advisor of 2019, reecting that

she has a close association with

the community.

“That’s shown by all

the wonderful events we’ve

held here.”

Answering your questions

on massage therapy

What is massage therapy and what are

the different types?

Why can it be beneficial for you?

Who should be your therapist?

Massage therapy is used to help manage a health

condition or enhance wellness.

It involves manipulating the soft tissues of the

body. Massage has been practised in most cultures,

throughout human history and was one of the earliest

tools that people used to try to relieve pain.

Swedish/Relaxation – This is a gentle form of

massage with long, flowing strokes, kneading, tapping

and vibration that will help calm your nervous system.

Deep Tissue – This is for the clients that are having

issues with body mechanics, back/neck, postural, hip/

knee issues. This kind of massage consists of deep

muscle work that requires a qualified therapist with

the knowledge and skills to ascertain what is going

on throughout the deep muscular system. It can be

painful but has great benefits and results.

Sports Massage – This is a great massage for

pre- or post-events to help get the muscles in the best

condition to help prevent injury and aid in recovery

after exercise.

Hot Rock – This is literally massaging with hot

Aches and Pains?

Poor Posture? Tired,

Stressed Body?

rocks heated up to 57 degrees – with this massage you

can go either way, nice and relaxing or into the deeper


Finding a massage therapist

It can be a bit overwhelming trying to find a good

massage therapist, especially one that is qualified.

At Bodysense there are level six qualified Remedial

therapists, who are active members of the Massage

Association of New Zealand. It is recommended,

especially if getting a deep tissue massage, to ask if the

person who is treating you is qualified. This is for your

own peace of mind and safe practice. Having deep

tissue by someone not qualified is not good practice

and they are not going to be able to deliver the results

that you require or understand the body in the way

that they need to.

Unfortunately, in New Zealand this industry is not

as regulated as it should be yet, so always look out for

a therapist that is part of The New Zealand Massage

Association or holds a diploma level 6 or above.

Brush aside thoughts that massage is only a feel good

way to indulge or pamper yourself. On the contrary,

massage is a very powerful tool in helping people

correct many common body ailments. At Bodysense,

they have clients that live a more comfortable, painfree

life, in comparison to previously, due to the

therapists’ expertise.

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.

available from the Natural Health

Advisers at Marshall’s Health and

Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are always

happy to help!


Brain fog, forgetful, feeling old, low energy, mood swings,

difficulty sleeping, pins & needles, numbness in legs

Up to 1 in 2 people may have a shrinking brain due to a lack of vitamin B12.

Supplementation of methylcobalamin B12 has been shown to reduce the rate of brain

shrinkage & support memory & brain function. B12 is also known to protect against

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that can also damage the hearing,

eyesight & affect the mood. B12 is essential for energy, cell health & nerve function.
