Hornby mega-facility back on track

Emotional win for residents

• By Louis Day and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

ARTHUR AND Liz Edwards

were fighting back tears after city

councillors unanimously voted

to get the $37.5 million Hornby

Library, Service Centre and South

West Pool back on track.

The couple, who have lived in

Hornby for 52 years, marched with

a large group to the city council

chambers on Thursday to fight for

a pool in their area.

Mrs Edwards, who has four

compressed fractures in her back,

travels to Rolleston to swim for rehabilitation,

while Mr Edwards has

a heart condition and swimming is

his only viable form of exercise.

But now their dream of having

a nearby pool to swim in will

become a reality. “It has been

a great relief and we can start

looking forward to the future,” Mr

Edwards said.

The group of Hornby residents

emerged triumphant after playing a

role in convincing city councillors

to get the $37.5 million Hornby

mega-facility back on track.

Loud cheers and applause broke

out when councillors voted for

several crucial steps to allow the

design and development of the

facility to go ahead.

Call for action over boarding house

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

John

Reddiford

THE FIRST boarding house

in the city to be approved in a

suburban density area in Ilam

has prompted action to be taken.

The Ilam and Upper Riccarton

Residents’ Association will make

a presentation to the city council

on its concerns

over a non-notified

boarding

house being

approved in

a low-density

zone.

It will present

to the city

council next

month and

be supported

by Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

deputy chairwoman Helen

Broughton and board member

Catherine Chu.

Up until now, boarding houses

have only been approved for

medium-density housing areas

– which predominantly have

multi-unit residential housing.

But the city council approved

a six-bedroom dwelling on Lynfield

Ave to be converted into a

nine-bedroom boarding house

earlier this year.

City council head of resource

consents John Higgins

confirmed under the new city

UNKNOWN CHANGES: A boarding house has been approved

in a suburban density for the first time in the city.

district plan’s provisions, it is the

first boarding house approved in

a suburban density area.

In 2016, the residents’ association

successfully lobbied for the

city council replacement district

plan to have a definition of what

a boarding house is.

This meant a resource consent

is required before a boarding

house can be established.

Neighbours previously raised

concerns over the boarding

house being non-notified.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

It comes as the residents’ association

is pushing for the city’s

District Plan to stop boarding

houses appearing unexpectedly

in residential streets.

Chairman John Reddiford

said boarding houses “change

the nature of the area.”

“You have the United Kingdom,

if they do this there are basically

very high standards they

have got to have. Here I don’t

think the standards are high.

“The amount of cars on the road

oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

increase and the number of established

residents are not happy the

area has changed,” he said.

Mrs Broughton said she was

concerned because over time it

will “erode the quality of residential

development.”

“If you allow one in suburban

density, in six months time if

someone else comes along and

wants to do the same then they

can actually say well if you let

this first one through therefore

we should all be let through,”

she said.

Board member Catherine Chu

said it was not acceptable and

has set a precedent for other

boarding houses.

“What I don’t understand to

be honest is why it is being done

in a non-notifiable basis without

letting the residents know,” she

said.

Mr Higgins said boarding

houses are not permitted in

any main residential zones and

need a resource consent to be

established.

In Brief

SPEED LIMIT REVIEW

A request has been made to the

New Zealand Transport Agency

to drop the speed limit on a

section of Halswell Rd between

Augustine Drive to about

300m before Dunbars Rd from

80km/h to 60km/h. The request

was made by the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board following a major speed

limit review of roads throughout

the Halswell and Hornby

wards. NZTA South Island

regional relationships director

Jim Harland has responded by

saying there is a North Halswell

Outline Development Plan,

with land use and subdivision

consents lodged for residential

and mixed-use development on

the eastern side of Halswell Rd.

He said the best time for a speed

limit review would be when the

land use environment changes

significantly.

GRANTS FOR EVENTS

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board has approved

$4500 in grants to a mixture of

groups and individuals wanting

to host summer events. The

board allocated the funding

on Tuesday after receiving

applications for the city council’s

2019-20 Summer with your

Neighbours fund.

Residents march on

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Max’s new heart

Max loves life (and bones)!

A while ago though, he had just run

out of puff. He would collapse with

excitement or exercise and more than

once his Dad was worried that he had

lost him.

Dr Richard Lucy examined him,

performing a barrage of tests

including ECGs and heart ultrasound

(echocardiography). He diagnosed

a 3rd degree heart block. This is a

condition where the heart’s normal

electrical impulses are not conducted

through the normal tissues. The heart

rate is very slow and the patient

is unable to increase heart rate in

response to exercise or excitement.

Left untreated, it is fatal.

Richard used to work in the Cardiology

Department at Christchurch

Public Hospital and has extensive

postgraduate Veterinary qualifications

in Veterinary Cardiology, Ultrasound,

X-ray and Medicine. He has worked

in universities in New Zealand,

Australia and the UK and has scanned

everything from people to tigers,

cheetahs, chimpanzees, gorillas and

guinea pigs. Richard works almost

exclusively at McMaster and Heap

Veterinary Practice performing Referral

Ultrasonography for vets from all over

the South Island.

He organised the surgical implantation

of a pacemaker with the kind help and

immense technical skills of Rose - the

Senior Cardiac Electrophysiologist from

Medtronic. Medtronic are one of the

largest producers of human cardiac

electrophysiology devices in the world.

Although our patients are four legged,

their hearts still work in the same basic

way as two legged patients!

After a day or two of rest, Max was

ready and rearing to go again. In fact

keeping him properly rested while he

healed was the main problem!

He gets regular ultrasounds to check

his heart function and the pacemaker

is regularly rechecked at the same

time. The pacemaker is often fine

tuned a little to ensure that it is

working optimally for Max. Cleverly,

the device records and stores all the

electrical activity of the heart (and the

pacemaker). All the data is available to

be examined using another machine

that “talks” to the pacemaker directly

through the skin!

Max loves his new lease on life, loves

chewing bones and his parents love

having their Max bright and happy

again.

Kids lend support to crusade

the Hornby mega-facility?

Email your views to georgia.

connor@starmedia.kiwi

The contingent of Hornby

residents arrived in a doubledecker

bus for the meeting, and

the vote was met with applause,

cheers and tears in the public

gallery. “They saved our pool,”

yelled one woman.

Mr Peters told city councillors

the suburb had waited long

enough for the facility.

“Please hear the passion of our

community, we have had enough

of waiting for this facility.

“We have had a whole

generation of Hornby kids

who have had no access to a

swimming pool. If we could

have this by 2022 that would be

greatly appreciated. We are more

than happy as a community to

find funds.”

Mayor Lianne Dalziel told the

meeting: “It is very rare for me to

speak against a recommendation

from a community board.

“They voted to do nothing and

that is not acceptable. It is not

acceptable to do nothing and we

are not going to do nothing,” she

said.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

“SAVE OUR pool! Save our

pool!”

Those were the words a crowd

of Hornby Primary School

pupils chanted as they cheered

on a large contingent of residents

travelling to the city council

office on a double-decker bus in

a bid to save the planned Hornby

Library, Service Centre and

South West Pool from further

delays.

City councillors voted

unanimously on Thursday to go

against the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board’s

recommendation to further

delay the mega-facility from

being constructed at Kyle Park.

Before the decision was made,

the school played a key role in

the successful crusade, creating

more than 50 posters calling for

the $37.5 million facility to be

built as quickly as possible.

Last month, the board voted

against several changes which

were key to the construction

of the mega-facility. But that

decision has been overturned by

the city council.

Principal Gary Roberts said

the decision was “fantastic news”

for Hornby and common sense

has prevailed.

Before the decision was made,

he said some of the pupils were

“quite worked up” over the

board’s recommendation.

“The decision involves them,

this side of town has been poorly

served for many years.

“When we shared the initial

decision with them it had

been put on hold they got onto

it very quickly, doing research,

creating posters and getting

messages out via social media,”

Mr Roberts said.

He said he was proud of

the way the pupils took

ownership and wanted their

voices heard.

Hornby resident Mark Peters

said the children’s involvement

in fighting for the mega-facility

was “absolutely stunning.”

“To pull up on the bus and to

see them all lined up with their

posters . . . it was absolute magic

and the energy we needed to go

(into city council) with,” he said.

Hornby’s Ross Houliston

agreed, saying the support of the

children was “fantastic”.

At the meeting, city

councillor Vicki Buck said it

had been a long process for the

facility. “I remember when we

first put this up for consideration

and talking to a young six-yearold

who will now be 12 who

wanted to be able to walk to the

swimming pool.”

Minecraft tips

in Riccarton

A LONG-TIME lover of games,

gadgets and all things creative

has helped to build up one of

Christchurch City Libraries’

most popular clubs through the

magic of Minecraft.

Long-term Minecraft Club

member Nathan Campbell,

20, can usually be found at

the Upper Riccarton Library

helping young Minecraft

enthusiasts. But he also “tends

to the Minecraft world” at Te

Hāpua: Halswell Centre and

other libraries.

The chance to share his passion

– and unite the collective

imagination of younger club

members – has been inspirational.

“Nothing is quite as inspiring

as working with kids and seeing

what everybody else is creating

and exploring,” he said.

City council head of libraries

and information Carolyn

Robertson said it has been

wonderful to see a young

Minecraft fan help develop the

programme. Nathan shares his

passion for Minecraft.

“It has certainly been the

catalyst for Nathan to explore

his creativity,” she said.

16km swim in memory of sister

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A YOUNG para-swimmer has

successfully swum 16km in

memory of his late twin sister.

Last year, 17-year-old Cashmere

High School student Nico

Wildbore tragically lost his sister

Bethany to suspected suicide.

Every kilometre he swam,

marked a year Bethany lived.

As part of World Suicide Prevention

Day, Nico swam nearly

nine hours straight to fight the

stigma tied to discussing mental

health and suicide.

Nico said thinking about sister

helped push him to meet his

goal.

The challenge was even

greater for Nico, who was born

with a type of cerebral palsy

called hemiplegia. It meant he

undertook the swim with limited

mobility in his right arm and leg.

Between 9.30am and 6.30pm,

Nico had only three 20min

breaks.

It is estimated with the

number of donations he made

on the day and with further

funds to come through he will

raise about $10,000 for the

New Zealand Mental Health

Foundation.

Nico said he was feeling tired

at the end of the challenge but

happy he had finished what he

EFFORT: Nico during one of his breaks on the way to swim

16km in memory of his sister.

started and he had “so much

support.”

The swim was held at the

Waitaha Swim Club, based at

the Canterbury Swim School in

Hornby.

Nico’s mother Keiran Horne

said he showed immense

“strength of character.”

“He not only finished the 16km

but he finished with a smile on

his face. I was immensely proud

of him. It was awesome,” she

said.

Ms Horne said the swim club

had an instructor swimming

alongside him all day and his

coach encouraged him every step

of the way.

His friends jumped in the pool

to help give him support too, she

said.

“There was always somebody

swimming alongside him in the

other lane which helped him

along,” she said.

Ms Horne said she was “flabbergasted”

at how well Nico went

but the exhaustion “really hit

him” in the evening.

Crafted hearts go

on display at gallery

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A HOME has been found for

thousands of crafted hearts

following the March 15 attacks.

Just under 2000 crafted knitted

hearts were delivered and put on

display at the Christchurch Art

Gallery recently.

It is after Barkers Wool And

Haberdashery manager Jacquie

Jewell established the initiative

Muslim Hearts of Christchurch.

With a goal to collect as many

hearts as possible, the initiative

generated more than 5000 hearts

along with messages of support

Mrs Jewell said it was nice to

be able to show the support those

Russley pupils to star in Miss Saigon production

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RISING STARS: Children cast to star in Showbiz Christchurch’s production of Miss Saigon with

the show’s leading performers Tina Bergantinos-Panlilio and Marcus Rivera.

RUSSLEY PRIMARY School

pupils will star in one of the

most iconic scenes in a major

musical to be staged at the Isaac

Theatre Royal this month.

Pupils of predominantly

Chinese, Japanese, Korean, NZ

European, NZ Chinese and

Dutch descent have been cast to

perform in Showbiz Christchurch’s

Miss Saigon.

As part of the lead-up to the

show, last week, the show’s lead

performers Marcus Rivera and

Tina Bergantinos-Panlilio travelled

out to the primary school to

sing with the children involved

in the show as part of their

school assembly.

Set during the Vietnam War,

the musical tells the story of

Vietnamese woman Kim and

American soldier Chris who fall

in love but are separated at the

end of the war in 1975.

The pupils aged between seven

and 11 have been cast as “evacuation

children” which means they

will appear on stage in the climactic

scene when Kim and Chris are

parted as the last Americans are

evacuated out of Saigon.

Showbiz marketing manager

Wendy Riley said the evacuation

scene is based on real events and

is likely one of the most “spectacular”

scenes as model “Huey”

is flown on stage.

“Huey” is the nickname for a

utility military helicopter Bell

UH-1 Iroquois which was used

in the Vietnam War evacuations.

In the 2009 New Zealand

premiere of Miss Saigon,

performed by Showbiz

Christchurch, Don Gillanders, of

Darfield, had just three days to

build the helicopter which will

be used in this production.

As part of the auditioning

process for the show, children

were placed in groups and given

instructions on different games

to play.

They were then asked to do

tasks such as colouring-in while

there were distractions around

them in a test to see if they could

maintain their focus.

The successful children were

chosen based on their willingness

to commit to the action

and their ability to focus around

distractions.

Four children aged between

five and six have also been cast to

play the role of Tam – the son of

Chris and Kim.

Due to the musical containing

mature themes robust management

is in place to ensure the

children are shielded from the

material.

All children in the cast are

in the care of chaperones at all

times.

Director Stephen Robertson

has taken a particular approach

to directing the children, similar

to the “game” approach in the

auditions so they are never party

to the full extent of the meaning

of the scenes they are in.

The children will also be

alternated each night throughout

the show’s season to ensure they

are not overtaxed or tired.

INTRODUCING

Narinder Singh Warraich

Community Board Candidate

Halswell Ward

YALDHURST AREA SPEED REVIEWS

I take this opportunity to introduce myself

to you all as one of the Candidates in the Local

body elections 2019.

My name is Narinder Singh Warraich and I am

standing for the Community board elections for

Halswell Christchurch.

I migrated from India to New Zealand in

2009 after completing my bachelor’s in political

science. It has since then become home for me.

Currently, I am residing in Wigram skies with

my lovely wife and our two-year-old son. My

family has been a part of local politics in India for

decades.

During my upbringing, my parents taught me

the importance of high moral values in a person’s

life. I believe my parents’ guidance has made me

a person with strong ethics. I have always been

closely involved as a volunteer and organiser

in many community events. I am a man with

community heart.

Being an entrepreneur, I support economic

growth but not at the cost of our natural

environment. I believe that New Zealand’s

future progress depends on our ability to adapt

technologically. A central element to this is

educating our young people with technical skills.

This is my firm belief that we need more

diversity in every level of governance in our

country, to initiate better conversation and

dialogues between our diverse communities.

I always support social and environmental

justice. I am proud to say that I am a white

ribbon ambassador and I stand against domestic

violence.

Given a chance, as a community board

member, I will act with transparency and will

work for the welfare of all communities. I will

focus on various aspects such as protecting our

precious water, stabilising the property rates

and stopping water

bottling. Since I

believe in taking real

action on climate change, I will engage the public

in conservation programmes. I would also focus

on road safety in Halswell area.

As soon as I see any problem, I focus on

coming up with a solution. During my recent

door knocking sessions, I got to know about

the rising rate of burglaries in Wigram and

Halswell area during the last couple of months.

I approached the local MP and Minister Hon.

Megan Woods to take a real action on it. I

organised a Community Safety Meeting with

the assistance of councillor Anne Galloway and

another The People’s Choice community board

candidate Andrei Moore. Hornby Community

Patrol, Neighbourhood Watch and local police

also attended this fruitful meeting. Eventually,

we came up with several safety measures and

tangible solutions.

In addition to this, I believe that selling

our city’s assets is not in our best interest

as ratepayers. These assets are strategically

important and generate income that helps us

keep rates in check. We can be proud our city

has held onto assets built up over generations

and I believe it is our best interests to keep them

in all our ownership.

I believe my academic qualifications in

political science, my passion for community,

my strong entrepreneurial attributes and my

basic understanding of

politics make me a strong

and reliable candidate

for Halswell Community

Board.

Together we can make a

difference.

Sound from Nga Puna Wai in spotlight

• By Matt Slaughter

NOISE LEVELS around Ngā

Puna Wai Sports Hub are

concerning some surrounding

Others say this is only an issue

sometimes and the sports hub is

an asset for the community.

Said city

council

manager of

recreation and

sport services

David Bailey:

“A resident who

lives close to

David

Bailey

the venue has

contacted us on

two occasions.

On one occasion, the resident

alerted us to the noise of hockey

balls reverberating off the

back of the goal during hockey

practice.

“On the second occasion,

the resident contacted us after

the Christchurch Car Show

to inquire if this event was

appropriate for the venue. We

also received a complaint during

the official opening of the rugby

league fields relating to the

the testing and commissioning

of the speaker/PA system and

during the game.”

Spreydon Ward city councillor

Phil Clearwater said he has

spoken to two nearby residents

who had noticed noise levels

at the facility had increased

recently.

“They lived certainly relatively

close to the stadium . . . they

pointed out that there had been

some noise, which they expected

and they just hoped that that

noise would always be controlled

and that it wouldn’t proceed long

into the night,” he said.

However, Graham Purkis who

lives about 300m away from Nga

Panu Wai said noise has not

been an issue for him.

“Sure, on match day you can

hear it but it’s not affecting us.”

Mr Purkis said in spite of this

occasional noise Ngā Puna Wai

is “nothing but a benefit.”

Euphrasie Drive resident

Lorraine Sellers said noise was

much more of an issue when the

facility was being constructed

than it is now.

“We don’t hear anything at all.

“I think it’s a wonderful set-up.”

Mr Bailey said city council

staff are taking measures in

response to noise complaints

near Nga Puna Wai.

“We understand the noise and

reach of the PA system during

the rugby league opening was

disturbing to some residents and

have now reprogrammed this

system.

“We acknowledge that the

noise of the hockey balls hitting

the back of the goal during

trainings can be disruptive and

have encouraged our sporting

partner, Canterbury Hockey, to

mitigate this issue. One tactic

we’re looking into is to install a

pad on the back of the goals to

dull the impact of the ball.”

Hornby High students set to move into new $26m campus

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

“THE STUDENTS will finally

have the school they deserve.”

That is how Hornby High

School principal Robin Sutton

describes the $26 million

campus rebuild which is due to

be completed this week.

The second stage is nearly

finished with three new

buildings, featuring modern,

multi-purpose spaces and room

for 20 classrooms with underfloor

heating.

The school will begin

moving into its new campus on

Waterloo Rd on Thursday, with

students set to start classes on

Monday.

The latest development will

also feature an outdoor stage,

new courtyard and green space.

‘The fact we got to the

– Robin Sutton

The rebuild has taken about

two and a half years.

“The fact we got to the

endpoint is fantastic and

everyone is really excited about

it,” Mr Sutton said.

The three buildings have

each been named after a native

bird in te reo Māori – mōhua

(yellowhead), tieke (saddleback)

and riroriro (grey warbler).

The names were gifted to the

school by Ngai Tahu.

A colour representing each

Hornby High was badly

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake. In July last

year, the school celebrated the

opening of the first stage, which

includes modern classrooms, a

cafe, library, common area, and

staff and administration areas.

The school, which has a roll

of just under 700, will be able

to cater for 100 additional

students.

Eventually it will be able to

cater for 1200 students with

another two buildings planned.

The rebuild is part of the

Ministry of Education’s $1.137

billion Christchurch Schools

Rebuild programme, which

aims to rebuild or renew 115

schools by 2022.

students are set to move into their brand new classrooms next

week.

A FICTIONAL book about a

sun bear by Templeton author

Teresa Kiddell is helping to save

bees.

Kiddell, Lyttelton illustrator

Celia Allison and editor Sorcha

O’Malley launched the new

children’s book Gwendolyn Bear

and the Honey Bees to coincide

with bee awareness month.

It is a light-hearted, rhyming

tale with an important message

about the plight of bees and

the importance of looking after

them.

Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson was

a guest speaker at the first launch

event in Lyttelton on Friday.

A second launch event was due

to be held near Little Pom’s cafe

on Sunday.

Kiddell is excited to get the

book published after it was “in

the back of her mind” for so

long.

“I can’t believe it’s out,” she

said.

On Thursday, Kiddell made a

presentation to the city council

for bee awareness month and

gave each city councillor a free

copy of her book.

More than 5000 copies have

been printed so far. The book is

available across New Zealand

and Christchurch.

Fifty cents from each $22.99

book will go towards the Trees

for Bees NZ programme, which

aims to maximise the health and

survival of bees.

Gwendolyn Bear and the

Honey Bees has been a concept

of Kiddell’s for 42 years and is

the first book she has published.

The author has been Allison’s

accountant for almost 20 years

and pitched the idea to her in

January.

Allison describes her

illustrations as “a whimsical,

watercolour pencil style with a

lot of detail.”

She is best known for her

Cecily and Moa Revival

illustrations, which are printed

on merchandise such as

City’s youngest real estate agent at 18

• By Hayley Tate

JONTY DOWNES might not

own his own home yet, but he is

already working towards selling

his first house.

The 18-year-old is

Christchurch’s youngest real

estate agent, and he has 10

buyers wanting him to find them

their new home.

He is also the second youngest

licensed real estate agent in New

Zealand. The youngest a person

can be registered for a real estate

licence is 18.

He has been interested in real

estate since he was a small boy.

As a seven-year-old, Jonty

would cycle around his neighbourhood,

see “for sale” signs

and be interested in new houses

built in the area.

By the time he was in year

12 at Hagley College he was attending

auctions and putting his

foot in the door of the real estate

industry.

“I’ve always had a real passion

for houses,” he said.

But he found people could not

understand his passion or take

him seriously for wanting to leap

into real estate straight out of

high school.

Traditionally, real estate is a

second or third career for people,

entering the industry as a career

change from their previous job.

Real Estate Authority Statistics

show 2071 people aged 53 to 57

were issued with their licences in

the first half of 2019 in New Zealand,

compared with 171 people

aged 18 to 22.

Avonhead Harcourts branch

manager Lisa Yardley-Vaiese

decided to give Jonty a chance,

offering him a place on the

Grenadier graduate programme.

She said it was more difficult

for young people in terms

of credibility because, usually,

younger people had not yet

bought a house.

Older people tended to create

the perception that they know

the industry better and buyers

were more likely to have confidence

in them.

Real Estate Authority head of

regulatory services Josh Doherty

said the number of people aged

18 to 21 issued with a salesperson’s

licence in New Zealand had

remained relatively stable over

the last five years.

More young people have

joined Grenadier’s graduate programme

in recent years, though

Mrs Yardley-Vaiese said she had

never mentored someone as

young as Jonty.

In spite of his age, Jonty has

proved his worth and knowledge

with colleagues and buyers.

“I’ve nicknamed him Wikipedia

because he just knows so

much,” Mrs Yardley-Vaiese said.

To enter real estate, agents

must complete 13 papers before

registering for a licence.

Jonty remembers the moment

he got his licence and said it was

his best achievement so far.

“I was quite excited to just

call buyers and do anything real

estate-related, because I think it

had been inside of me for ages

and I just wanted to let it out.”

He does not yet own a home,

but said it was on the cards.

He is not looking for anything

fancy – a one-bedroom flat

would be perfect.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

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

water.

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

production.

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

detailed information is available from

the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s

Health & Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview

Road, New Brighton, and Phone: 388-5757.

We are always happy to help you!

Love the life

you choose

When you move into a Summerset retirement village, you’re not just

moving house – you’re joining a vibrant and welcoming 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

accessible, high-quality, 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.

Over 5,000 residents are already enjoying the Summerset life across

26 villages around New Zealand. If you’re interested in Summerset for

yourself or a family member, come and visit one of our Christchurch

villages to find out more about the Summerset life.
