MAIREHAU continues to be

shop was the second business

targeted along Nancy Ave last

week after the neighbouring

smashed and till stolen.

Pay it Forward has been in the

building for six years, and coordinator

Lee Arthur said the

• By Claire Booker

A DECISION over the

controversial Harewood, Breens

and Gardiners Rds intersection

has been fast tracked to the city

council.

The infrastructure, transport

and environment

committee met

last week to make

a recommendation

to the city council

on the proposed

traffic signals.

But rather

than make a

recommendation,

it chose to

Aaron

Keown

forward the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board’s

recommendation in favour of

the lights straight to city council

meeting on September 12..

And it was all because one

councillor could not make the

meeting. Harewood Ward city

councillor Aaron Keown was

at a family reunion because the

committee meeting wasn’t held on

a previously scheduled date.

Northern Corridor meeting

moved to council chambers

• By Claire Booker

ST ALBANS residents will

have their chance to voice their

opinions on the effects of the

Northern Arterial Motorway

next week.

An extraordinary combined

meeting of the Papanui-Innes

and Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Boards has been

moved from the boardroom

in Papanui to the city council

chamber in the civic building in

Hereford St.

There were 253 submissions received

in relation to the Christchurch

Northern Corridor transport

projects, and more than 30 people

have already said they will make a

verbal submission.

But some residents are frustrated

the meeting venue wasn’t

scheduled for the council chamber

in the first place.

Ngahuia Freed has been

involved with the St Albans community

for a long time and has

seen many consultations and

submissions happen recently.

“People are burnt out, they’re

saying ‘we fought it last time,

we’re tired. We can’t do it anymore,”

she said.

Ms Freed is concerned the

change of venue might cause

confusion for some submitters,

in a Facebook comment, she

said: “Isn’t that just adding more

confusion for submitters and the

general public?”

Ms Freed said the boardroom

in Papanui was always going to

be too small.

“There is not the space for that

[verbal submissions and two community

boards] at all,” she said.

Papanui-Innes Board chairwoman

Ali Jones said the

decision to move the meeting

was made after the number of

people wanting to talk to their

submission was confirmed by

city council staff last week.

“We try to keep as many

meetings, consultations and

engagements in our community,

as possible. That makes it easier

for people who live and work in

the community to participate,”

she said.

“It had not been anticipated

that such a large number of

people would request to speak

to their submission. As soon as

CONGESTED:

More traffic is

expected for

Cranford St and

the St Albans

area once the

Northern Arterial

Motorway opens. ​

it became clear that the board

room was not going to be big

enough, our team booked the

council chamber and contacted

all submitters,” Ms Jones said.

Both boards will also consider

the city council staff report at the

meeting and make a recommendation

to the city council on the

transport projects.

The meeting will be held on

September 9. Submitters will

each have four minutes to speak,

and the meeting will start at

9.30am.

In Brief

PIPE RENEWAL

Work will begin this month on

the wastewater pipe on Flockton

St from Thornton to Carrick

Sts. Vehicle access to some

properties may be restricted

at times, but residents will be

informed prior to this. Work is

expected to be completed by the

end of October.

PAK’NSAVE DECISION

The decision on whether to

grant resource consent for a

PAK’nSAVE supermarket and

self-service fuel station on

Main North Rd is expected

by the end of the year. Twentyone

submissions were received

from the public, with 11 in

support, seven in opposition

and three neutral. A hearing

date has not yet been set, but is

likely to happen in the coming

months.

ANOTHER SHORT MEETING

Last week’s Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

meeting lasted 11 minutes. In

March, it held a nine minute

long meeting. In last week’s

meeting, the board approved

$8600 from its discretionary

response and youth development

funds, received a report on the

Bishopdale Mall revitalisation

project and the area report of the

community board.

Mairehau’s Pay it Forward

gift shop targeted by burglars

•From page 1

Luckily for the shop, nothing

was stolen, which Mrs Arthur

thinks is due to the alarm system

and the fact there was no cash on

the premises.

“They didn’t take anything, I

think they were just looking for

money,” she said.

A wheelie bin was used to

break the store window, the till

was opened and draws were

sifted through.

The shop is run by The Neighbourhood

Trust and is a social

enterprise where 60 of the city’s

creative entrepreneurs can sell

their products.

The shop also provides social

support to budding entrepreneurs

and runs craft classes for

the community at subsidised

rates so crafts can be accessed by

a wide range of people.

Entrepreneurs who sell their

products through the shop make

their own profits, and a commission

goes to The Neighbourhood

Trust, which puts the money

back into the community.

Mrs Arthur said she didn’t

know what would lead someone

to break into the shop.

“We definitely won’t be

brought down by it,” Mrs Arthur

said.

BROKEN: The Pay it Forward shop was broken into last week.

The shop has received a lot of

community feedback and online

support following the break-in.

A Facebook post from Pay it

Forward said: “Unfortunately,

the word hasn’t got out to everyone

that our profits go back into

the community. So the people

that broke into our shop this

morning didn’t realise that they

weren’t just hurting us, but they

were also hurting the local community.”

Mrs Arthur said the attempted

burglary has done the opposite

of what the offenders probably

wanted. The shop has since reopened

and the window has been

repaired. “It’s made us feel loved,

we will prevail,” she said.

The seven city councillors on

Students’ high-flying business trip

• By Claire Booker

A TRIP TO Thailand next

month will set up three young

entrepreneurs for a successful

career in business.

Olivia Hubber (St Margaret’s

College), Jake Newlands (St Andrew’s

College) and Finn McCabe

(Cashmere High School) have

been selected for the BizVenture

programme in Southeast Asia.

The students are three of

10 Young Enterprise Scheme

participants selected to take part

in the business challenge programme

which introduces young

entrepreneurs to global markets

and opportunities awaiting them

out of school.

More than 4000 students

across New Zealand applied for

the opportunity. The application

process for the trip required

students to make a 2min video,

including an explanation of the

product their Young Enterprise

Scheme business provides and

why it is sustainable.

The video also needed to

contain an explanation of how

their product or service could

be successful in the Thai market

and why they should be chosen

to participate in the BizVenture

programme.

The Southeast Asia Centre of

ENTREPRENEUR: Jake Newlands is one of three Christchurch

students selected to go to Thailand as part of a Young

Enterprise Scheme business trip next month.

Asia-Pacific Excellence has partnered

with the Young Enterprise

Scheme to create the week-long

experience that encourages business

connections in Southeast

Asia.

The students will learn about

the culture and business community

in Thailand and will

visit established and emerging

companies.

They will also meet local entrepreneurs

and key players in New

Zealand trade, and engage with

Kiwi entrepreneurs operating

offshore.

During the trip, the students

will work with local students and

compete in a business challenge

where they will pitch to a panel

of local business leaders.

Jake said finding out he was

successful in his application

process was unexpected.

“The announcement was

very exciting and unexpected,

especially considering that our

application had only been due

the day before the phone call,”

he said.

Jake’s business is called In the

Mix, which provides healthy and

sustainable baking mixes, the

business has three products for

sale – a bar, cookie and a gluten

and dairy-free brownie mix.

“Our business has been

successful so far, with our environmental

and health-focused

product being a hit at markets

as well as on social media,” Jake

said.

He is looking forward to going

to Thailand where he hopes to

grow his business knowledge.

“While this is a somewhat

nerve-wracking prospect, the opportunity

to have business leaders

listen to and give feedback on

your work and presentation is

rare and unique,” he said.

Jake plans to study a double

degree in law and commerce

next year in Wellington or

Christchurch.

St Margaret’s

College

student Olivia

Hubber shares

her thoughts

on being

selected for

the Bizventure

trip

THE WHOLE trip is going to

be incredibly amazing and very

inspiring. I am most looking

forward to fully immersing

myself into the culture which

Thailand offers where I can acquire

first-hand experience and

knowledge about business and

sustainability.

Business is one of my biggest

passions. I love how you can

bring things to life and inspire

others. I am currently applying

to study at Auckland University

doing a joint degree in commerce

and art. One day I want

to get the Bold internship at

Google in Silicon Valley. A lot

of people find this goal rather

outrageous and confronting.

However, for me, I am in awe

of the forward-thinking nature

and innovative environment

Google has.

This has always been a dream

of mine and something I am

working towards. I would love

to work internationally.

‘Feeding my good wolf’ at Outward Bound

Mairehau High School

student Maddison Bouma,

17, writes about her

experience on the 21-day

Takere Outward Bound

course

OUTWARD Bound is an

experience that will be

embedded in my memory

forever.

It is truly astonishing what you

are capable of when you set your

mind to it.

During my time at Outward

Bound, a group of strangers

became a family within a matter

of days.

I kayaked raging river rapids,

captained a sailboat through a

storm and through the night,

and tramped mountains without

a marked track.

I also went to the Outward

Bound school in Anakiwa,

Marlborough, and on a beautiful

island solo-camped for three

days, and had many other

adventures.

Outward Bound allowed me to

push myself further than I ever

thought possible.

FUTURE LEADERS: Senior students from across the city were selected to go on a 21-day

Outward Bound Leadership course.

It helped me to better

understand what I am capable

of, what my limits are and

taught me skills that can help me

conquer any challenge I face.

One of the most memorable

lessons I learnt was about feeding

my ‘good wolf’. My instructors

taught my watchmates and I

a lesson about our reticular

activating system by using two

wolves. Everyone has a good

and a bad wolf. If we feed our

bad wolf, by thinking negative

and discouraging thoughts that

we can’t do something, our

reticular activating system will

start to seek and show our mind

evidence that these negative

things are true. For instance,

if you say to yourself that you

are always late, your reticular

activating system will make you

believe this is true. In turn, you

will most likely always be late.

However, if we feed our good

wolf by thinking positive and

encouraging thoughts and telling

ourselves that we can do it, you

will.

I have found this good wolf/

bad wolf model to be extremely

beneficial. It has helped me

overcome numerous challenges

that I might have struggled with

prior to Outward Bound.

I have even had the

opportunity to pass on this

knowledge to my peers and

witness the results of them

feeding their good wolf.

Outward Bound truly is a

mind-blowing experience and

has had a tremendous impact on

not just my own life but that of

so many others.

Something that has stuck with

me are the words of Outward

Bound founder Kurt Hahn, who

said: “There is more in you.”

Ms Twaddell has

Lynda Gill has been

chairwoman until the

organisation holds its

next month.

Ms Twaddell said

her resignation from

the role is also due to a conflict of

“I have a conflict of interest

she said.

Eco-warriors

plant orchard

at Breens

• By Claire Booker

A TEAM of eco-warriors at

Breens Intermediate have been

busy planting a school orchard.

The club has been running for

four years and about 30 students

are involved.

Earlier this year, the team

started a single-use packaging

ban, and have encouraged zero

waste lunches at the school.

The students have also started

a worm-farm, composting system

and have transformed the

old sandpit into a bramble patch.

Breens pupil Sariah Orton said

she enjoys the club because it will

leave a legacy for future pupils.

“It’s not just for yourself, it’s for

future generations,” she said.

The students planned the space

for the orchard and mapped out

the placement of the trees and 14

planting beds.

Four apple, plum and pear

trees, two feijoa trees and a

grapevine were donated to the

school.

The students were taught how to

safely handle the trees, dig safely

Lee Arthur said the

event is about bringing people

together.

“Recognising that all our kids

come into the world with their

own traits, personalities, and

goals is great . . . sometimes

positively managing these

can often come with its own

challenges though,” she said.

Fun for mums and dads over Parenting Week

“The Neighbourhood Trust

is passionate about bringing

together a host of resources

to help parents broaden their

knowledge base, whilst gaining

the support they need on their

parenting journey.” Mrs Arthur

said.

The week will have a range

of workshops and expert

speakers, which will cover

parenting topics across all ages

of children.

More than 30 events will be

held over the 10 days of the

event, and Mrs Arthur said

the trust is hoping to reach

more parents this year. Many of

the events are free or require a

gold coin donation.

Some events have a small

cost for tickets, but parents are

encouraged to register to secure

their seats, as the sessions are

filling up quickly.

In your

neighbourhood

How to get a great tattoo

A great tattoo makes life better.

Whether you’re getting tattooed to

celebrate one of life’s milestones, to share

an experience with your best mate or to

simply wear a beautiful work of art that’s

yours forever, you want a tattoo you can

wear with pride.

You want a tattoo that makes you happy.

With such an important decision, you

need to trust your skin to the right artist.

But how do you know?

Start with the studio. You want

an environment that makes you feel

comfortable. Inside the bright orange

building on Greers Road, Jolly Octopus

Tattoos is a warm and comfortable place,

with lots of natural light and

warm wood. They’re a kind and

friendly bunch who are happy to

see you.

The best way to get a feel for

a studio environment is to drop

by and have a look. See what you

think. Another way is to check out

online reviews – see what other

people have to say about their

experiences.

Next, think about style. You want

your body art to look a certain

way: traditional style or realism,

Ta Moko, black and grey, Mandala,

watercolour, anime – the only limits are

your imagination.

The Jolly Octopus has eight great artists

to choose from. That way, no matter what

style of tattoo you’re after, they can make

sure you’ll work with an artist who will

knock it out of the park.

Finally, the last important step to getting

a great tattoo is trust.

You’ve found a studio that feels

welcoming and comfortable. You’ve got an

artist who does beautiful work in the style

you want. Now, and sometimes this can be

the hardest part, you’ve got to trust your

artist.

Communication is key. The artists at

The Jolly Octopus want you to get the best

tattoo of your life. Be honest and open

with them – you’re in good hands. To

make sure you get just what you’re after,

your artist will even sit down with you for

a free consult so you can plan your perfect

tattoo together.

A great tattoo is both a great piece of art

and a great memory. The Jolly Octopus

will give you both.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

Tasty Bites

Creating healthy food to reduce stress

Stress is normal and often

healthy. In everyday life,

stress plays a role in alerting

us to life’s occasional

dangers and challenges, so

we can prepare ourselves for

them and find solutions to

impending problems. Poke

bowls (pronounced pohkay)

are based on the bitesized

marinated fish salad

famous in Hawaii and have

some great stress-relieving

qualities

Poke bowl

Ingredients

450g uncooked wild salmon,

skinned and cut into 2cm cubes

(or hot-roasted, if preferred)

½-1 medium ripe avocado, diced

¾ cup mango pieces, defrosted

½ cup thinly sliced capsicum

2 cups packed spicy greens, such

as watercress or mizuna, roughly

chopped

½ cup blanched broccoli florets

½ cup chopped fresh coriander

½ cup edamame beans, boiled

3 Tbsp tamari/soy sauce

2 Tsp sesame oil

1 Tbsp black sesame seeds

½ lemon, cut

Brown rice salad

2 cups cooked short-grain brown

rice, warmed

2 Tbsp rice vinegar

½ tsp turmeric

2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

Directions

SENIOR LIVING

Gently combine salmon, tamari

and sesame oil in a medium

bowl to let the flavours infuse.

Make brown rice salad by

combining rice and greens in a

large bowl.

Whisk vinegar, oil and mustard

in a small bowl. Add to the

rice salad and mix well. Place on

the base of a bowl.

Top with all the other individual

SENIOR LIVING

How’s your circulation?

Healthy blood circulation throughout

the body is vital for good health.

The circulatory system (cardiovascular

system) delivers nutrients and oxygen to

all cells in the body. It consists of the heart

and the blood vessels running through the

entire body. The arteries carry blood away

from the heart while the veins carry it back

to the heart.

Atherosclerosis is the most common

cause of poor blood circulation. It occurs

when plaque builds up in the blood

vessels. This plaque narrows and hardens

the blood vessels and restricts blood flow.

Plaque can also break off causing a stroke

or heart attack.

Some of the common symptoms

possibly indicating poor circulation are:

numbness and tingling in the hands and

feet; swelling (edema), itchiness, heaviness

in the feet, ankles and legs; pain and

aching in the legs feet, arms and hands;

cold hands and feet; memory loss and

difficulty concentrating; fatigue; digestive

issues including abdominal pain, diarrhea,

constipation and cramping; erectile

dysfunction (ED); severe baldness at the

crown of the head and grey hair.

Healthy blood circulation and

cardiovascular health can be supported

with Nature’s Sunshine HSII herbal

formula. This time proven formula

helps angina pains, atherosclerosis,

edema, fatigue, heart arrhythmia, heart

weakness, varicose veins and more. HSII

contains three herbs; capsicum, garlic

and hawthorn that work synergistically

to increase circulation and cardiovascular

health, while at the same time lowering

high blood pressure and aiding in the

prevention of heart attack and stroke.

Capsicum increases fibrinolytic activity

that breaks down artery plaque and

blood clots when consumed regularly

in sufficient amounts. Capsicum also

improves blood circulation by promoting

nitric oxide release in the blood stream.

Garlic has numerous health benefits

including inhibiting platelet aggregation

while encouraging the breakdown and

production of fibrin, a clotting protein

implicated in heart disease and strokes.

Garlic also has been shown to raise good

HDL cholesterol levels as well as reducing

serum triglycerides, a cardiovascular

risk factor. Hawthorn is known as a

heart tonic. Studies confirm hawthorn to

strengthen and normalise the heartbeat,

prevent and reduce heart arrhythmias and

guard the heart against oxygen deficiency.

Hawthorn also helps improve blood flow

by improving arterial health.

HSII and further information is

available from the Medical Herbalists

and Natural Health Advisers at

Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 101

moving house – you’re joining a vibrant and warm community where

you’ll feel completely at home.

At Summerset we put you at the heart of everything

we do, so you can enjoy the freedom of living the life

you choose.

The perfect home is waiting for you. From villas and townhouses, to

apartments – you’ll find a place to make your own. Our homes are built

for warmth, and there are no worries about maintenance or upkeep as

we do it all for you. Pets are also welcome, and you can even go away

on holiday knowing your home will be safe and secure. We’ll also make

sure you’re aware of all costs, giving you the certainty that there won’t

be any unexpected surprises.

When it comes to activities and events, there’s always something

happening to keep our Summerset community involved and

entertained, and you can choose to do as much or as little as you like.

If you need some extra care or support, our continuum of care means

we’ll be there for you as your needs change, giving you the peace of

mind to continue living life to its fullest.
