NEW ZEALAND music

teacher of the year is a

prestigious title to hold, and

Duncan Ferguson is one of

three Kiwis in the running.

The St Andrew’s College head

of music has been teaching at

the school for 10 years, and he

said being the only South Island

finalist is a huge honour.

“I know there is a large number

of teachers all over New

Zealand, so I’m surprised that I

have received this. I also feel really

glad that the hard work I do

at St Andrew’s College and for

the music teaching community

has been honoured,” he said.

Other finalists for the Recorded

Music New Zealand

award are Jane Egan from Gisbourne

Girls’ High School who

is a finalist for the second year

in a row and Sue Banham from

Rosehill College in Auckland.

House for

criminals

could be

unlawful

• By Sophie Cornish

A HALFWAY house for serious

criminals in upmarket Merivale

could be operating unlawfully.

The Salisbury St Foundation in

St Albans St is now under investigation

by the city council after its

compliance team received a complaint

about the matter last week.

Said a city council spokesman:

“To be lawfully operating at the

sites under the Resource Management

Act, the activities would

either need to be operating under

existing use rights or be permitted

by the Christchurch District

Plan. We don’t have this information

at this stage.”

He said there are no resource

consents recorded for any of the

properties owned by the foundation.

On September 17, Nor’west

News reported the foundation

had expanded and brought more

properties nearby. It is now able to

house 21 criminals, up from 15.

In August, a new consolidated

agreement with the foundation

and the Department of Corrections

approved the increase, as

well as changes which means all

of the foundation’s services are

financially compensated for by

Corrections.

Community centre site blessed

In Brief

• By Claire Booker

A SITE blessing and sod-turning

ceremony held last week marked

preparations for work on the

new $3.1 million St Albans

Community Centre.

Contractors are due to be onsite

by early November.

But some residents are concerned

about the high-cost for

the centre, and lack of sustainable

energy and water systems.

But St Albans Resident’s Association

board member Lynne

O’Keefe said the association is

helping to ensure these systems

are put in place. She said this is a

plan for the future.

“There obviously has been a

lot put into it [community centre]

now, but we will be working

to get that sorted,” she said.

The single-storey building will

be on the site formerly occupied

by the earthquake-damaged

centre – a block of land that

runs between Colombo St and

Caledonian Rd.

The building will have modern

timber and a glass facade with

400 sq m of floor space, including

a hall with a stage, three

meeting rooms, an office and a

kitchen.

A central gathering space

will open out on to a deck to

the north, delivering light and

As a community hub, it

will provide a base for many

groups that cater to all ages and

Many local groups are currently

operating out of makeshift

“With the new centre a step

closer, they can soon be under

one roof and continue to provide

support to the local community,

along with plenty of activities and

Maximising student motivation

•From page 1

The three finalists were selected

from 200 nominations received

for 76 individual music teachers

and mentors across the country.

Mr Ferguson said being named

as a finalist has helped to reassure

him he knows what he is doing.

“I have spent so much of my

career second-guessing myself

about whether I’m doing a good

job as a teacher. In a way though,

this has been a good thing as it

means I’ve constantly been questioning

my practice, and how to

adapt to new students every year,”

he said.

Recorded Music New Zealand

chief executive Damian Vaughan

said it is a privilege to celebrate

Aotearoa’s top music teachers and

the significant impact they have

on so many New Zealanders.

“For the second year, we have

reviewed the incredible work

of the best music teachers in

Aotearoa. The guidance they give

our rangatahi on their creative

journeys can’t be overstated,

it’s one of the main reasons our

music industry is thriving,” Mr

Vaughan said.

At St Andrew’s, Mr Ferguson

manages 30 co-curricular groups

across all genres of music, which

more than 140 students are involved

in.

Mr Ferguson redesigns his

courses annually to maximise

student motivation and engagement.

“My students are not allowed to

ask: ‘What do I need to do to get

excellence?’ We are always looking

at where they are at as performers,

composers, producers, musicologists

and what do they need to do

to get better,” he said.

Year 13 music student Victoria

Lee said it is special to see her

teacher recognised at a national

level.

“He [Mr Ferguson] never

hesitates to sacrifice his own time

for the benefit of his students. He

will go everywhere and anywhere

to support his students and their

music,” she said.

Classmate Hana Price added:

“What I love about music class

with Mr Ferguson is how projectbased

everything is. Instead of

only focusing on assessment, Mr

Ferguson focuses on creating

music that each student can be

proud of.”

Head boy Luca Vinnell

described Mr Ferguson as an “innovative

teacher.”

“His passion for music and

education is infectious and he

fosters an attitude where we are

encouraged to produce the best

product we can, not stopping

once we have met the course

requirements.”

Making yesterday's

best performance into today’s

new baseline is how legends

roll. Never settle. Never stop.

selling more houses than us!

Villa’s budding business bosses

VILLA MARIA College

students have had the

opportunity to be business

bosses, putting their business

knowledge into practice at the

school’s market day.

Year 10 commerce students

including Bishopdale’s Keito

Yoshida were challenged to create

a product and a food item

and sell to the college community

recently.

“My favourite part was

presenting our prototype and

receiving the feedback so we

could improve our product before

market day. I’m excited to be

selling our coffee cups and cake

mixes at the market and also

helping out our chosen charity,”

said Katie McHerron.

“We had to choose products to

sell, identify the unique selling

point, develop a business plan,

make prototypes and work on

our marketing skills,” said year

10 student Kyra Clarkson, whose

group is called Super Mugs.

“We decided to sell reusable

coffee cups, filled with a readyto-bake

cake mix and cookie

dough.”

Fellow student Keito Yoshida

added: “We focussed on creating

a product that was sustainable

and environmentally friendly,

their cups, rather than using

disposable cups.”

Commerce is an optional subject

for year 10 students at Villa

Maria College and is a combination

of accounting, economics

and business studies.

It’s a popular subject choice for

students and they enjoy the challenge

of the market day event.

Student Ruby Lundy said: “It

was tricky to come up with a

product that was unique and

special so that we could attract

lots of customers, but we’re really

happy with our end product.”

The students will all decide

on a charity to donate a portion

of their profits to after the

market.

Other products at the market

included reusable metal straws,

face masks and lip scrubs,

bubble tea and sweet treats.

CONGESTION: The Downstream Effects Management Plan

was approved by the city council last week.

Mitigation plan approved

• By Claire Booker

THE PLAN to mitigate the

effects of more than 48,000 extra

vehicles set to come through

St Albans due to a motorway

extension has been approved.

At its meeting on last week, the

city council approved the recommendations

of two community

boards that said public transport

should be prioritised to help

alleviate traffic congestion in the

suburb.

Christchurch’s Northern

Motorway is being extended

through to QEII Drive and Cranford

St and when completed will

effectively slice St Albans in half.

It will also add an extra 48,000

vehicles a day.

Residents have tried to fight

the extension, but all that can

be done now is to find ways to

alleviate the amount of traffic

coming through the suburb.

City councillors also said

Courtenay St near St Albans

School should be investigated for

a street renewal to improve safety

in the next Long Term Plan.

The majority of city councillors

agreed, however, Crs Yani Johanson

and James Gough voted

against the management plan.

The motorway extension and

the traffic management plan will

cost the city council about $70-

80 million, while NZ Transport

Agency will pay for the other

half.

The extension is set to open in

June.

Dig out your historic photos for competition

GIVEN TIME, even the most

ordinary photo can be an

extraordinary window into a

different world.

This photo, picturing the

intersection of High, Hereford

and Colombo Sts, was a

highly commended entry in

Christchurch City Libraries’ 2008

photo hunt. It was submitted

by Tony Bowie and shows his

mother and grandmother on

their way to shop in High St in

the late 1950s.

During the 1950s, the central

city was the prime destination

for shopping in Christchurch,

and women would don hats and

gloves for their trip into town.

The central city enjoyed this

shopping heyday in the first half

of the 20th-century, coinciding

with the peak of reliance on

public transport – first trams,

then buses. Cathedral Square

was the central hub of the

city’s transport network, which

connected the suburbs to the city

centre.

It was customary for people

to go into town to shop, and to

“take tea” in the tea rooms of the

major department stores located

on both sides of Cathedral

Square.

years ago with the aim of entering

the Smokefreerockquest and

Rockshop Bandquest.

“All four members worked extremely

hard behind the scenes

and turned up to each practice

prepared, which allowed us to

focus on the performance as

well as the song,” he said.

Mr Sumner said it was a great

effort as the lead singer and guitarist

is only 10-years-old.

Rockshop promotions

manager Hamish Jackson said

supporting young bands and

giving them the opportunity to

perform is very much a part of

the ethos of the company which

sponsors the competition.

“There is a lasting impact

for the music community, and

the community in a whole, in

being apart of a programme

like this. A lot of these kids

will find a passion for music

through Rockshop Bandquest,

which can lead to really exciting

future possibilities when this

is nurtured and developed,” he

said.

Successful live gig for

Rangi Ruru musicians

LAST WEEK at one of

Christchurch’s favourite live

venues, Rangi Ruru music students

performed to a full house.

Fat Eddie’s, in the central city,

jumped and buzzed to the sounds

of the contemporary and jazz

music students, who presented a

range of styles in both covers and

original music.

Director of music at Rangi

Ruru, Janet Kingsbury, said the

students thoroughly enjoyed sharing

their music with family and

friends.

“There was so much variety. We

heard from our rock bands, ranging

from first-time performers in

year 9 to the more experienced

NOR’WEST NEWS

year 13 groups,”

Mrs Kingsbury said the jazz

combo and jazz bands were crowd

favourites, following their successes

at the Southern Jam Jazz

Youth Festival last month.

“The jazz combo and jazz

band really got toes tapping with

popular and well-known jazz

standards, along with some that

would have been new to audience

members. It was a very special

afternoon,” she said.

Event organiser and Rangi’s

rock band mentor, Henare Kaa,

said the girls worked hard towards

the event and were excited

about the opportunity to play in

such a great venue.

Special message in park mural

• By Claire Booker

MACFARLANE PARK in

Mairehau has been given a

new lease of life thanks to an

initiative to bring murals to the

park.

Last week, four murals made

by schools in the area were unveiled,

with one having a focus

on love and support following

March 15’s terror attack.

The mural features a quote

from the memorial service and

the word “peace” in more than

20 languages students at the

school speak, as well as flowers

made from recycled plastic.

The quote on the mural, from

Farid Ahmed says: “I may be

from one culture, you may come

from another culture, I may

have one faith, you may have

one faith, but together we are a

beautiful garden.”

Shirley Primary School parent

and board of trustees member,

Bec Roper-Gee was a driving

force to getting the murals completed.

“I walked my kids to Shirley

Primary through MacFarlane

Park for the last seven years and

often thought it would be wonderful

if the local children could

have something more uplifting

to look at every morning than

the sad old fences that line both

sides of the park,” she said.

Ms Roper-Gee used her background

as an environmental

consultant and a “sustainability

nut,” and had the idea to upcycle

plastic milk bottle lids for the

mural.

“I worked with the Shirley

Primary students on their

mural, spending many hours

shredding milk bottle lids and

helping the kids fill moulds

and melt the plastic. We hope

these will be the first of many

artworks enhancing the park”

she said.

Shirley Primary pupils Pietro

Moses and Kamden Dyer said

the mural represents how each

person’s differences make them

unique.

“This is an opportunity to add

some colour into MacFarlane

Park and to provide a constant

reminder of what happened,”

they said.

Said Shirley Primary School

principal Alistair Sim: “This

mural will hopefully continue

to encourage our community to

embrace our differences and ensure

that hatred does not survive

in a positive community.”

Kahui Ako – a group made up

of early childhood centres in

the area – and Chisnallwood

Intermediate were also involved

in the murals.

Shirley Intermediate School

teacher Margaret Dwan said

the combined mural the school

made with Chisnallwood

Intermediate required a lot of

organisation to keep it looking

cohesive.

The mural included birds

which were painted by pupils

from Shirley Intermediate from

different ethnicities, and each

bird represented the pupil’s own

ethnic art.

Hip-hop

dancers to

show moves

in Sydney

• By Claire Booker

A GROUP of Papanui hiphop

dancers are due to fly out

to Sydney tomorrow for an

international competition.

Two dance crews from Zion

Studios will compete at the World

Supremacy Battleground International

Championship this week.

Head teacher

Bronte Te Mete said

Zion aims to create a

positive environment

for people.

“We use dance as

Bronte

Te Mete

a tool to build community

and whanau

and to build students

up with life skills and positive

mechanisms,” she said.

The studio’s senior students

competed in Hamilton at the

World Supremacy Battleground

qualifier recently and took out the

secondary school-aged and open

sections.

“Both crews have been working

tirelessly to create their own

masterpieces to showcase on the

world stage,” Miss Te Mete said.

The competition runs over four

days, with different workshops

and classes around hip-hop

culture and dance.

Pupils urge community

to help them recycle

FENDALTON Open-Air School

pupils are asking residents to

hand over their toothbrushes

and toothpaste tubes to help

win a national recycling

competition.

The pupils are leading the war

on waste by collecting all their

old toothbrushes and saving

them from landfill.

They are taking part in the

Colgate Community Garden

Challenge. It is encouraging

schools to register, collect and

ship all their oral care waste to

TerraCycle which will turn it

into new products.

The competition encourages

pupils to learn about

sustainability by seeing how

waste which would normally be

sent to landfill can be given a

second life and made into a new

product such as a garden bed.

A recycled community garden

set will be awarded to two

schools, as well as a $300 Mitre

10 voucher which can be used to

buy seeds and plants.

Rebecca Dalton, of Fendalton

Open-Air School, said the

pupils want to involve their

entire community as part of

their environmental education

programme. The results

achieved at last year’s Colgate

Community Garden Challenge

saw more than 50,000 pieces of

oral care waste diverted from

SCHOOLS

landfill, with 331 schools signing

up to the programme and 4000

votes entered online.

Paparoa Street School joins

forces to restore reserve

OUTDOOR EDUCATION has

taken on a new meaning for

Paparoa Street School pupils

who have joined forces with

city council rangers to restore

Rutland Reserve.

The pupils are engaged

in the future planning and

development of the park.

City council rangers –

supported by the community

partnerships fund and Papanui-

Innes Community Board – have

been working with the pupils

over the past six months.

Along with Ngāi Tūāhuriri,

the pupils are working together

to name two of the reserve’s postearthquake

streams.

manager Kate Russell said the

children appear more aware of

their environment and the need

to take care of their world.

“Youngsters, generally, are

becoming more involved,

thanks – in part – to the ‘Greta

Thunberg effect’,” Ms Russell

said. “It’s important that

young children have a voice

in their community and that

their opinions are valued.

By including pupils, teachers

and parents in the park work,

it helps to develop a strong

sense of community in the

neighbourhood. The pupils have

already realised that they can

make a difference,” she said.

The pupils have planted two

kahikatea – a gift from the

Riccarton Bush Trust –

in the reserve as the first

step to recreating a kahikatea

forest.

Paparoa Street School board

of trustees chairman Hirone

Waretini is excited about where

the learning is taking the

children.

“It aligns with a treaty-based

approach – partnership,

protection and principle – but

also takes children into some

cutting-edge territory learning

about environmental science,”

he said.

compete for New Zealand titles

at the national championships

which start tomorrow in

Hastings.

Kwahli Beauchamp, Daniel

Meehan and Sam Burdett-Clark

will represent the Smiling Tigers

gym, while Tom Westall and

Ryan Entese will represent the

Papanui Boxing Club in the

20-strong Canterbury team.

Canterbury and Smiling Tigers

coach Mark Fuller believes he

has athletes capable of bringing

home some medals.

Kwahli is the 14-year-old son

of Canterbury professional Nort

Beauchamp and is a current New

Zealand champion in the under-

40kg cadet grade.

“He would be the most improved

Canterbury boxer and

while he’s a little short, he has

one heck of a work-rate and has

improved so much,” Fuller said.

Meehan is chasing his third

New Zealand title.

Burdett-Clark has four silver

medals at national level and

Fuller said he is capable of earning

his first national title.

“He’s looking good, he broke

his wrist earlier this year, but

has come back, represented New

Zealand and won a couple of

fights here in Christchurch so

he’s tracking well and is good

enough.”

leader Sam Watt, who has retired

after multiple national titles but

Entese is a defending national

champion in his own right.

“In the cadets, Sutherland and

Kwahli Beauchamp – they’ve

had 25 to 30 fights now and the

juniors Daniel Meehan, James

Charlton and Blake Gibson all

have 30 fights plus,” Fuller said.

“We always aim to medal, but

there are a few kids there that

will need three bouts to earn a

silver or gold but realistically

we should

come back

with a good

haul. This is

the pinnacle

of the year

so they’’ll all

be giving it

everything. Mark Fuller

“Byron

Antal is a good lad, it’ll be a big

step up and he’s keen to learn.”

Weigh-ins were due to take

place today.

“It’s a good team and we

always have expectations to

perform well and to represent

Canterbury well,” Fuller said.

Tasty Bites

Sweet vegan classics from Asia

Try a vegan take on

some Asian classics

Indonesian crumpets

Makes 20

Ingredients

250ml (1 cup) soy or coconut

milk

7g sachet dried active yeast

1 tsp coconut sugar

300g (2 cups) plain flour

2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp vanilla powder

Olive oil or vegan butter, for

greasing

Suggested toppings:

Coconut yoghurt, vegan butter,

pure maple syrup, fresh berries,

shredded basil leaves, dried

edible flowers, hemp seeds, icing

sugar.

Directions

Gently warm the soy or

coconut milk and 250ml (one

cup) of water in a saucepan

over low heat until just warmed

through (don’t warm the liquid

too much or you will kill your

yeast). Pour the liquid into a

bowl and add the dried yeast

and sugar. Set aside in a warm

place for 15min or until the

surface starts to foam. Sift the

flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt

and vanilla into a large bowl.

Add the yeast mixture and stir to

combine. Place a clean damp tea

towel over the mixing bowl and

set aside for 35-40min or until

the mixture is risen and bubbly.

Heat the oven to 100 deg C

fan-forced. Lightly grease a large

frying pan and set over mediumhigh

heat, then lightly grease a

few egg rings and place them in

the pan.

Stir the mixture again – it

should look like thick, bubbly

pancake batter. Add 60-125ml

(¼ cup-½ cup) more water to

reach the desired consistency if

necessary.

Spoon two to three

tablespoons of the mixture into

each egg ring. Cook for 2min

or until the tops are completely

covered in bubbles and the

batter is dry. Remove the egg

rings, transfer the crumpets

to a heatproof plate and keep

warm in the oven. Repeat with

the remaining mixture to make

about 20 crumpets.

Serve the warm crumpets with

your favourite toppings.

Any leftover crumpets will

keep in an airtight container in

the fridge for two to three days

or in the freezer for up to two

weeks.

2-3 long red chillies, roughly

chopped

3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

2 tsp ground cumin

2-3cm piece of ginger, roughly

chopped

1 tsp ground turmeric

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp black peppercorns

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp brown mustard seeds

Directions

Using a large mortar and

pestle, pound the masala curry

paste ingredients for about

smooth paste (alternatively,

you can use a small food

processor.)

Heat a saucepan over medium

heat, add the oil and curry paste

and saute for 30sec.

Add the onion and saute for

2min, then stir through the

tomatoes and chickpeas.

Reduce the heat to low and

simmer for 30min or until

reduced to a thick curry.

Remove the pan from the heat,

stir through the sugar and lemon

juice, then taste and add a little

salt, if necessary.

Sprinkle the chana masala

with coriander and serve with

steamed basmati rice or garlic

naan on the side and lemon

wedges for squeezing over.

Tip: Keep your chickpea liquid

(aquafaba) to make sriracha

mayo or caesar dressing.

2019 LoCaL ELECtioNS - meet your candidates

Mike Davidson Standing for Councillor - Papanui Ward

Paid Advertising Feature

As Councillor for the Papanui Ward I have

been a strong supporter of local communities

and businesses. I have focused on key city

priorities including chlorine-free drinking water,

improved roading and transport, and a healthy

environment. I have been vocal against the

rates increases and opposed the decision to

chlorinate our drinking water.

We have achieved a lot over the last three

years, including the opening of Tūranga, the

Town Hall, the Lichfield car parking building,

Ngā Puna Wai sports complex and Taiora QEII,

Signs of the Kiwi and Takahe and the St Albans

Pavilion. We’ve completed the Dudley Creek

flood works, the repair of the Redwood Plunket

room, replanted the historic Papanui bush and

retained the postal and bill services in Papanui.

But there is still work to do. We must fight

mantatory chlorination of our pristine and safe

water, lower our carbon emissions and create

a transport system that is safe and accessible

for all. We must repair our damaged roads

and footpaths and ensure our city remains

affordable to live in.

I have actively pushed for passenger rail to

connect the city to our neighbouring districts

and for public transport to come to CCC, so the

bus service can actually work for us.

I have the experience and a proven track

record of standing up for our communities

and living locally I know the opportunities and

challenges we face.

Local body elections are about local people

not political parties and a vote for Mike

Davidson is a vote for a strong, independent

and local voice that will represent you and the

Papanui Ward at the Council table.

www.facebook.com/papanuicouncillor

Authorised by M Davidson. 11 Norfolk Street, St Albans, Christchurch.

Nathan McCluskey Standing for Councillor and Community Board - Papanui Ward

Hi, I’m Dr Nathan McCluskey and I’m

standing for Council for Papanui. I live in

Redwood with my wife Gina and 5 of our 6

boys.

I was born and grew up in the Papanui Ward

attending Northcote Primary and Casebrook

Intermediate Schools. With post-graduate

degrees in political science and demography I

bring an analytical mind to the table - because

that’s my bread and butter. I spent ten years

in the public sector working on large scale

survey design. I currently own and operate

my own research consultancy and know all

about population data and how that can best

translate into sound policy.

My family and I are actively involved in the

wider community in youth leadership and local

sports.

I’ve been the Chair of the Christchurch

Central Labour Electorate Committee and

with my educational expertise and experience

working in the public sector and running my

own business, I bring a suite of skills and

knowledge to the table that will enable me to

build the bridges necessary and break down

the barriers to getting the job done.

My campaign has the support of our Prime

Minister and as part of a strong team, our

policies are clear (rates restraint, infrastructure

prioritisation, transport transformation,

engagement improvement and environmental

restoration) and we have the capacity to

accomplish what Christchurch has struggled to

achieve over the last decade. If you love your

neighbour, vote for Labour and if you want

something done, from dawn to dusky, vote

McCluskey.

Let’s do this!

Authorised by J McLellan, 6 Braddon Street, Addington, Christchurch.

Peter McDougall Standing for Councillor and Community Board - Papanui Ward

I am a member of Governance NZ, I bring

over 20 years’ experience working in local and

central government.

I live in Elmwood. I am a member of the

Graham Condon Sports Centre. My 9 year old

son has his swimming lessons at GC and we do

most of our regular shopping in the Northlands

Mall.

Christchurch can have and do more.

We don’t have to choose between a new

stadium, spending more on our infrastructure or

investing more in social housing. Christchurch

can have, and deserves, it all!

But to afford it, a major rethink of how our City

Council operates is required.

Rates increases are currently out of control

with no end in sight.

CCC has now reached its debt ceiling.

There hasn’t been the required investment in

infrastructure.

The East and our inner city are an

embarrassment.

Social Housing needs a significant immediate

investment.

It doesn’t have to be like this. However a

major rethink of how our City Council operates

is required.

I believe we can achieve an immediate rates

decrease followed by increases at no more than

the rate of inflation.

We can achieve this by Councillors and

staff working closer together and focusing on

delivering core services more efficiently and

economically.

In particular savings can be made by CCC

reviewing its internal structure with a view to

delivering core services under a different model,

incorporating Citycare back into Council’s

normal business operation and consider a

partial sell down of some of Council’s major

assets.

Christchurch can have and do more.

Authorised by BS Palliser QSM, 20 Gothic Place, Christchurch.

John Stringer Standing for Councillor - Papanui Ward

JOHN STRINGER - Long time PAPANUI

resident was elected to the Papanui-Innes

community board in 2016 and polled the most

total votes in the ward (4926).

He’s an independent advocate for Papanui:

a member of Papanui Rotary; Papanui RSA;

Papanui Club; Papanui Heritage Group;

Papanui Community Networking Group; the

“Neighbourly” forum Lead (Papanui); and

worships at St Paul’s Papanui and Northcity

church.

John was walking the walk, long before

others started to talk. He’s been in Papanui

ward for 50 years.

A masters degree in classics, John has

been active in politics professionally and as

a volunteer for over three decades (NZ and

London). He’s an ex-Beehive press secretary

and a published author (NZ, USA, Australia).

Locally, he was instrumental in having the

small Bridgestone reserve on Langdons Rd

extended to a much larger viable totara native

forest after existing voices said it could not

be planted in trees; a strong advocate for the

refurbishment of Papanui Bush, lost since 1850.

John is married and has 5 adult children and

4 grandchildren.

“My most important election plank is RATES

RESTRAINT. A 15% plus increase in our rates

over the next term is a breach of the social

contract with ratepayers!

“I’m opposed to a CEO $500k salary (it’s

too high) and would have preferred a local

candidate already up to speed on the complex

and unique issues related to Christchurch.

“I oppose chlorination of our water and want

less cycleway spending.

“1.2b current council debt is too high.”

Merav Benaia Standing for Community Board - Papanui Ward

I’m running in this election so that the people

living in our ward will get their roads and

footpaths fixed properly, so we can have the

transport system we need to meet the demands

of an increasing population in a world facing

climate crisis, so that we will have lights at our

local parks for women to feel safe going through

them at nightfall. I’m running so we have

vibrant connected communities that embrace

our differences yet amplify what makes us the

same.

These are things I have learned from talking

to people and asking them what they want to

have. These concerns are shared city wide –

maintenance of roads, footpaths and parks,

continued chlorination of our drinking water,

lack of public transport, traffic safety and traffic

volumes.

As elected member I will continue doing that;

asking people what they want and allowing

those voices to be heard.

I will bring a variety of experience to this

role. I emigrated from Israel to NZ 15 years

ago. I have a degree in Political Science and

International Relations. My husband and I are

owners of a small business. I’m also a mother of

two teenage boys.

Politics is about making a difference in

people’s lives. Local body politics is about

making a difference in our community, street,

neighbourhood, city and region.

I’m running in these elections because I want

to know I did everything I can to make this city a

place my children will choose to live in.

2019 LoCAL ELECtionS - meet your candidates

Simon Britten Standing for Community Board - Papanui Ward

Paid Advertising Feature

I run the Think Papanui community

engagement initiative, and live in Redwood with

my wife Andrea and three children. Since 2011

I have worked at Te Ora Hou Ōtautahi, a youth

and community development organisation with

a long history in Papanui.

Previously I worked for Tait Communications

in marketing management, and have

volunteered with the Papanui Youth

Development Trust. I have served on boards

including the Papanui Baptist Freedom Trust,

Pillars, and the Casebrook Intermediate School

Board of Trustees (two years as chair). I am

a Vodafone Foundation World of Difference

recipient, which recognised my work on a

transitional youth employment project. I have

completed two Canterbury University courses

for leaders in the community sector, and

participated in local community leadership

forums.

I offer our community: independent

representation; a track record running Think

Papanui; local knowledge, and experience in

community governance.

I value a connected community that cares

for all of its members, and I am passionate

about contributing to Papanui. I’ve been running

Think Papanui for three years now, and in

that time have read the agenda and minutes

for every meeting of our Community Board.

I really appreciate the positive impact our

Board makes, and would love the opportunity

to contribute as a Board member - please

support me with your vote. If you’d like to know

more about my background and my policies,

or would like to contact me, please take a look

at www.simonbritten.com or facebook.com/

SimonBritten.ThinkPapanui.

Authorised by Simon Britten, 33 Barnes Road, Redwood.

Lindon Boyce Standing for Councillor and Community Board - Innes Ward

I am part of the Coalition of Independent

Candidates supported by Darrell Park.

Our policies may not all be the same but we

do agree on one thing - our city is broken and

something has to change, the only person who

can this is YOU with your vote.

The most important agenda we all agree on

is that the Council is so badly managed that

our basic core services, roads, water supplies,

waste and general maintenance have been

neglected for years in favour of local Councillor

sponsored vanity projects including over

engineered cycle lanes, statues, artworks and

the complete mess that is our “Accessible City”

- all paid for by unaffordable rates increases.

These issues have affected us all through

higher rents, increased housing costs and

business expenses.

Our Council has to be more efficient and

less bureaucratic, return to prioritising the

basic needs and not wants which can only be

accomplished with the right team and people

running our city.

I was born and bred in St Albans. I attended

Mairehau Kindy and Primary and swam at

Edgeware pool for years - this is my home. The

only reason I am standing for Councillor now is

due to the lack of representation in the matters

important to our city and community,

I will personally represent you with your help.

I have over 35 years experience building

roads and repairing this same infrastructure. I

have also worked within CCC as a Contractor

for many years, I know many of its weaknesses

and how these can be fixed. As a small

business owner I know of the daily struggle just

to survive some days.

I don’t have an answer to climate change and

other issues currently posted, these are not my

strengths so I am not going to pretend to know

otherwise, I am not a politician or politically

motivated. I want whats best for our city.

A vote for me is one for all of us, we can not

continue the same way we have been.

Authorised by Lindon Boyce, 296 Papanui Road, Christchurch.

Cam Parsonson Standing for Councillor and Community Board - Innes Ward

I ran for council because people keep telling

me that civic resources just aren’t getting

returned to the Innes ward.

I make projects happen, developing projects

in aquaculture, hospitality, retail, construction

and others. I am an entrepreneur, with a

masters in science from Canterbury University.

I also hold an LBP as a licenced builder. I have

also been employed as a mechanic , autoelectrician

and as a food technologist.

I have academic skills that are of value

in delivering good governance in our local

community. As a facilitator, mediator and

project leader I understand how to activate

and rise up community to complete projects

and get results. Over the past two years I’ve

developed an aquaculture business and gained

a ‘transitional facility operator’ license from MPI

which involved navigating complex biosecurity

legislation.

Right now the Innes ward needs leadership

and governance that is focused on returning

more civic assets to our area to enhance the

amenity of our area and protect property values

now and into the future.

People consider me a ‘problem solver’ as I

am often called upon to resolve complex issues

and applying new technology to existing “dumb”

infrastructure is a focus. I am skilled in finding

new uses for old resources.

A vote for me is a vote for practical common

sense on council with a proven can do attitude

and considerable general and scientific

knowledge.

Authorised by C.Parsonson, 123 Joy Street, Christchurch.

Holly Chappell-Eason Standing for Community Board - Innes Ward

As a proud 5th generation Cantabrian I’m

driven to make a difference in our city. The

opportunity to help make our community vibrant,

active and safe is an exciting prospect.

A strong community board should embrace

diversity, sports, family, culture, public spaces

and community groups. We need chlorine-free

water and safe streets; a balance of pedestrians

and cars, and functioning public spaces. We are

a diverse and thriving community. We should be

celebrating all of the different passions we have

- what’s important to us. Let’s make Papanui-

Innes ward a place we are proud to call home.

My background in the arts, leadership and

education means my greatest skill is listening.

I will listen to what our community needs, I will

always find a solution- creative problem solving

is key. I love to work with groups and activate

young people in particular to take ownership

of the future of our city. My passion, drive and

compassion will be an asset to the governance

of our area.

After living and working all over New Zealand

it felt exciting and necessary to move home to

Saint Albans, to start my family here, to be an

active part of the rebuild. Now I want to take

the next step; to have a hand in guiding our

community and eventually our city. To be the

voice of our community would be an absolute

honour for me.

Make sure your vote counts - a vote for Holly

Chappell-Eason is a vote for you and your

family’s future.

Ali Jones Standing for Community Board re-election - Papanui-Innes Ward

In the last six years and especially the last

three, it is clear there is still plenty of work to

do in the Innes Ward. With the experience,

relationships and knowledge I have from the

working on the Papanui Innes Community

Board for the last six years, I can hit the

ground running.

For example, the Northern Corridor opens

next year and there are significant roading

projects that go with that; the roading renewal

plans for Innes, traffic flow and congestion,

safety around shops and schools - I have been

living and breathing this as a community board

member (board chair from 2016-2019) and city

councillor (2013-2016) so I am up to speed.

If you re-elect me, you’ll be getting a real

advocate for communities and people, honesty,

transparency and a very hard worker. I don’t

play games and am a straight shooter.

As the Innes area has had much invested

from an infrastructure perspective (the Dudley

diversion, Christchurch Northern Corridor and

cycleways for example), the money spent

in our ward has been significant but it has

generally not been on community facilities and

improving amenity – we must continue to fight

for equity in our ward so that we can have the

same facilities other parts of the city enjoy.

Understanding how the Long Term Plan

(City Council 10 year budgets) work is

essential to putting our case – I totally get

that and will do exactly that, if re-elected to

the Papanui Innes Community Board, as your

Innes representative.

I am standing as an independent candidate

as I will not make decisions based on anyone

else’s philosophy or party line. Party politics

should stay in Wellington and do not have a

place in local government. We have a unique

environment in Christchurch and I don’t believe

our future should be held hostage for political

gain.

Aaron Keown Standing for Councillor and Community Board - Harewood Ward

Paid Advertising Feature

I am Aaron Keown, your councillor for the

Harewood ward, and I represent you on the

CDHB. I am proud to say I’m the chair of the

CCC Disabilities Working Group. I am married

with three children and we live here in the ward.

I also own a small business that employs a

handful of people and helps with growing the

Event & Tourism industry in Christchurch.

I have met many of you in my time as an

elected member as I’m always contactable and

I do my best to get good outcomes for our ward

and the hard working rate payers that live here.

My voting record shows I’ve been true to my

word on a number of issues (traffic lights, rates,

chlorine) and will speak up when something

isn’t right. I’m outcome focused and constantly

look for the best value for your money.

The next three years requires a council

that is going to be focused on the big issues.

Firstly we have to keep rates down and I have

not supported the recent huge increases. We

have to fix our roads and get them back to pre

quake quality within the next three years, not

the planned 30 years. Finally we have to make

sure the Christchurch economy is in a strong

position to deliver a lifestyle we can aspire to for

all residents.

I have always tried to be available to the

residents of Harewood so if you ever have

Jason Middlemiss Standing for Community Board - Harewood Ward

As a new father, I am stepping up to do my

bit helping North West Christchurch to stay a

great place for families to grow. My parents

taught me when you play sports or participate

in community groups, when you’re older it’s

your turn to give back.

I am running in Harewood because I love

our neighbourhood and want to give back so

my kid’s generation has the same opportunities

we have living here. That requires a

strong voice that works well with others to

solve infrastructure issues, improve park

maintenance and address traffic issues.

We’ve got some challenges to address

in the next few years like how we revitalise

Bishopdale Mall, deal safely with increased

traffic flows through Sawyers Arms and

Harewood Road. Along with ensuring our parks

and reserves like Styx Mill and the Groynes

are continuing to be well looked after for our

families to enjoy for years to come.

Using my experience as a Chartered

Accountant and perspective gained as a new

parent, I offer you a representative that is

competent and invested in the best outcomes

for our community because my family is

engaged in it on a daily basis. I’m always

available to hear your concerns and feedback.

Please contact me anytime at

jason@jasonmiddlemiss.co.nz and

021-257-0433. Vote Jason Middlemiss

for Community Board.

2019 LoCAL ELECtionS - meet your candidates

Sam MacDonald Standing for Councillor - Waimairi Ward

Paid Advertising Feature

Does our community get value for money

from the $27 million in rates we pay each

year? Our roads, parks and water supply need

improving, and we cannot afford more rate

rises.

As the Chairman of our local Community

Board, I enjoy working on everyday issues and

local projects. But the big problems we face

– continuous rate rises, ballooning debt and

deferred maintenance – are what I hear most

about, and those problems can only be solved

from the Council table.

I am the only Council candidate running in the

Waimairi Ward who lives and pays rates in our

Ward, I understand our local issues.

My Community Board experience here in

the Waimairi Ward and work as a Chartered

Accountant has given me both the local

knowledge and professional skills to get better

value for your ratepayer funds. I am asking for

your vote to be your Councillor. As always, feel

free to contact me at any time –

sam@sammacdonald.co.nz or 027 333 9215.

It’s time to put an Accountant at the Council

table, vote Sam MacDonald.

Authorised by Sam MacDonald, 237B Maidstone Road. Avonhead. Christchurch

Shirish Paranjape Standing for Community Board - Waimairi Ward

Dear Waimairi resident,

Would you vote for someone residing in

Auckland to be the Mayor of Christchurch? Of

course not! The same applies for electing your

Waimairi Community Board member.

I am a LOCAL - I live and pay rates in

Waimairi ward, and have done for over 17

years. I am seeking re-election as your

Community Board member for Waimairi Ward.

Having completed my first term, I can say I

have certainly enjoyed the role and was able

to make a positive contribution. In particular,

I immensely cherish the people-interaction

aspect which this role entails, as well as being

able to put rate-payers’ money to good use –

for community groups as well as individuals;

and for small and big projects which make

our neighbourhood a better place to live for

everyone.

Over the past weeks, I have walked the

streets of Waimairi ward and met many of you.

If I could not meet you, you would have found

my election flyer near your front door or in your

letter-box.

My sincere promise is that I will be your voice,

your eyes and ears; for any and every matter,

whether Council-related or other. I will work with

the same passion, integrity, transparency and

enthusiasm that I have demonstrated in the

past years, and to continue to make a positive

difference in the lives of people around me.

PLEASE VOTE FOR ME as your Waimairi

Community Board member.

Thanks in advance,

Aaron Campbell Standing for Environment Canterbury - Christchurch West Ōpuna

As an independent candidate for ECan in

Christchurch West- Ōpuna, I’m standing up

for the future of water and our quality of life in

Canterbury.

Cantabrians have been clear – we don’t want

our precious, pure water given away or polluted

with nitrates.

As an independent, I’ve been clear from the

start about what motivates me and what my

goals are:

· I’m a co-founding member of Aotearoa

Water Action, formed to challenge ECan

granting consents in Belfast for water bottling.

· Nitrates in groundwater are a looming

disaster for Christchurch and toxic levels are

being recorded in rural Canterbury. ECan

has enabled irrigation, dairy intensification on

unsuitable soils.

· Last year, I spoke out against the lobbying

of government by Water NZ seeking mandatory/

permanent chlorination and a new water

regulator. The CCC quit Water NZ three weeks

later.

· ECan has overseen falling bus patronage

and funding cuts, despite population growth. We

need an accessible, affordable, zero-emission

network. Everyone benefits when more people

use public transport.

I grew up on a sheep farm so I’m far from

anti-farming. It is the responsibility of ECan to

push for substantive change to the RMA, to

protect our water and soils, the rural economy

and restore biodiversity.

As a company director, community board

member and business mentor I have a solid

background in governance and financial

management.

I’ve spoken out against water bottling,

chlorination, nuisance quarry dust and I have

supported measures reducing congestion,

improving accessibility (disability) and promoting

public transport.

Authorised by A. Campbell, 3 Kilsythe Place, Christchurch.

Megan Hands Standing for Environment Canterbury - Christchurch West Ōpuna

As an environmental consultant I have

an intimate understanding of the progress

made and the work to be done to improve our

water quality in Canterbury. As a new mum,

I want our region to be the best place for

young families like my own to live, work and

explore. I have a Bachelor of Environmental

Management and Planning, and qualifications

in Nutrient Management and Agricultural

Greenhouse Gas Emissions. I currently Cochair

the Selwyn Te Waihora Zone Committee

and am a member of the Institute of Directors.

Environment Canterbury needs collaborative

decision makers who use evidence, science

and responsible spending to sustain our

region’s economic growth and protect our

environment. I fundamentally believe that

economic growth and environmental protection

can and must go together and that we should

all be able to enjoy our great outdoors. With

me as your Councillor you have a commitment

to;

1. Ensuring a healthy environment, safe

drinking water and clean air while supporting

our regional economy.

2. Ensuring Biodiversity is protected,

maintained and enhanced.

3. Affordable and accessible public

transport that aids the goal of a Carbon Zero

Christchurch. I am open minded about who is

best placed to manage this.

4. Ensuring your ratepayer money is

invested prudently.

I am a genuinely independent candidate

meaning you will get a Councillor committed

to what is best for our grassroots Canterbury

community and environment with a focus on

ECan’s core business. I need your vote and

would be honoured to be your ECan councillor

for Christchurch West.

Authorised by Megan Hands, 229 Hacketts Road, Darfield, Christchurch.

Chrys Horn Standing for Environment Canterbury - Christchurch West Ōpuna

We must protect and regenerate our precious

water resources and our natural heritage, and

find ways to lessen climate change and deal

with climate disruption.

We must improve public transport and

increase its use around the city.

We need the CCC and ECan to work together

much more constructively than has recently

been the case.

I’m a team player who has worked for many

years on environmental issues with a wide

range of communities. We’ve solved problems

and reached common goals by working together

to make things happen. I’d like to see ECan

working well with communities and with other

councils to progress action on the issues above.

I have a BSc in Botany, A masters in Parks

and Recreation Management and a PhD in

social science. For seven years I worked at

Manaaki Whenua/ Landcare Research as a

social researcher where I worked with science

teams looking at a range of environmental

issues. My work focused on helping

communities to work together to understand

the science, understand their problems and to

develop solutions that were good for them and

good for the local environment. I wanted to work

more directly on these issues that I kept seeing,

so I left, set up my own business and began

working in my own community.

Since the earthquakes, I been working in

community development in the South West of

Christchurch in response to the need that I saw

there.

Craig Pauling Standing for Environment Canterbury - Christchurch West Ōpuna

Paid Advertising Feature

Tēnā koutou,

I want to be part of a new Environment

Canterbury that secures better outcomes for

our land and water, and all that call our region

home.

It is achievable if those at the council table

work together, from both rural and urban

communities, to face the challenges we have

and explore land use opportunities that can

regenerate our soil, enhance our water quality,

and help restore our native birds, plants and

fish.

Born and raised in here in Ōtautahi, I care

deeply about our whenua and as a father

I am driven to protect and enhance our

unique natural and cultural heritage for future

generations to enjoy. Having Ngāi Tahu,

Ngāti Mutunga, English, Scottish and Welsh

heritage, I understand the importance of

balancing perspectives.

For the past 20 years, I have been working

in the environmental space with iwi, central

and local government, as well as private

companies to make sure we are making

the best decisions for our people, land and

waterways.

I have a degree in Environmental

Management and post graduate certificates

in Ecology and Social Science. I’m a qualified

RMA hearings commissioner and have been a

member of the Canterbury Water Management

Strategy Christchurch-West Melton Zone and

Regional Committee. I am the current Chair of

the native ecological restoration trust Te Ara

Peter Ballantyne Standing for Canterbury District Health Board

Peter has considerable experience in the

health sector having served as Deputy Chair of

the Canterbury District Health Board and Chair

of the West Coast District Health Board.

Peter believes the health board has worked

tirelessly to meet the needs of Cantabrians,

but has been constrained by lack of funding

.Peter considers that he is well placed to

advocate strongly for equitable funding for our

health needs in Canterbury. This, combined

with efficiencies in service, will enable more

funds to be available to meet the increased

demands of health issues such as mental

health, cancer and elective surgery in order to

ensure that our communities get well, stay well

and live well closer to home. Addressing the

increasing needs of our ageing population is

a continuing demand on our health services.

There is also need to remove the capital

charge, and progress the rate of our facility

rebuilds to ensure our people receive timely

and appropriate treatment in modern hospital

facilities. He is very conscious of the safety and

wellbeing of our health workforce which has

been operating under tremendous pressure

since the earthquakes while continuing to

maintain high standards of service.

Peter was previously a partner in the

international consulting firm Deloitte. He

currently serves on the CDHB Quality, Finance,

Audit, and Risk Committee and on the

University of Canterbury Council.

A life long Cantabrian, Peter is a greatgrandson

of John Ballantyne, founder of

Ballantynes Department Store. Peter’s wife

Claire worked as a registered nurse with

Re-elect Lianne Dalziel Mayor

“I love Christchurch and am confident about our

future. With my experience and inclusive style

of leadership, we can tackle any challenges that

lie ahead, while seizing every opportunity that

comes our way.”

It is vital we keep the momentum going.

My immediate priorities are:

Water: Investment in our infrastructure will

deliver pure water safely to your home. I

will fight Government-imposed mandatory

chlorination.

Rates: I will bring rates rises down while

ensuring continued infrastructure investment,

and balancing council debt and inflation.

Central City: A vibrant city centre is essential.

Having secured $300m for Christchurch, the

stadium will be a multi-use facility. I will continue

to back the developers leading the way.

Sustainability: I am committed to reducing our

city’s carbon footprint, and helping communities

prepare for the impacts of climate change.

Eastern Alliance: An alliance of contractors will

deliver a fully integrated programme of works

across the east, fixing the roads, footpaths and

pipes and building stopbanks.

John Minto Standing for Christchurch Mayor

I am standing as a KOA (Keep our Assets

Canterbury) candidate for mayor because we

want a future for Christchurch which makes

sense.

The city faces three big challenges: a

climate emergency, a water supply threatened

by contaminants and many people struggling

on poverty incomes without dignity or selfrespect.

Our policies are to reduce greenhouse

gas emissions with free and frequent public

transport; provide a local zone for Canterbury

businesses and co-operatives in the city

centre; rebuild the 400 council rental homes

destroyed in the earthquakes; future-proof

our water supply and develop a plan for

swimmable rivers; rate increases kept to the

rate of inflation and a minimum of the living

wage for all council work.

As well as significantly reducing our

greenhouse gas emissions, fare-free public

transport will create a more cohesive, less

divided city as people mix and mingle on

modern, low-emission buses with free wifi.

It will also save families approximately four

weeks pay per year in transport costs which

will be spent in the local economy giving a

boost to local businesses and co-operatives.

This policy will not increase rates because

it will be paid for from existing government

budgets by rebalancing transport funding away

from new roads in favour of public transport.

These policies will improve our lives while

saving the council money. More details are at

Hydrate to elevate

We all know drinking water is important, but the

majority of us simply don’t drink enough even though

we know it makes us feel great when we do. We look

at the benefits and motivate you to drink more with a

few tips on how to make it just a little more palatable.

With over a quarter of Kiwis

consuming less than two glasses of

water a day and only 5% drinking

more than the recommended eight, the

message obviously hasn’t hit home on

the importance of hydrating our body.

A recent survey conducted by

SodaStream found that Cantabrians

are particularly guilty when it comes to

their water intake.

With 82% drinking less than six

glasses of water a day, but with over 85%

admitting they feel healthier when they

drink more water, something needs to

be done to bridge the gap in terms of

what we know to be true and what we’re

actually doing about it.

This same survey revealed that

although 41% of us limit how many soft

drinks we consume due to our concerns

over sugar content, the same number

of people said tea or coffee is this their

number one drink of choice.

Some people even believe that the

water consumed in their cup of Joe

constitutes part of their water intake.

This is a fallacy.

As caffeine actually dehydrates us, as

does alcohol too, it means we need to

drink even more water to compensate.

Not so surprisingly the reason we

don’t drink nearly enough water is that

we simply forget. Now with apps you

can download direct to your smart

phone, there are no more excuses.

Further studies proved that people

who had a SodaStream machine in their

homes were more likely to drink more

water.

In fact, the study showed that people

drank 30% more water.

For those of us who aren’t used to

drinking water like it’s going

out of fashion, there are plenty of ways

to increase the fun factor while still

being healthy.

After

Before

By simply turning tap water into sparkling water with a

SodaStream machine and adding a splash of fresh lemon juice

or naturally squeezed fruit juice, is bound to have a positive

impact on our health and wellbeing.

SENIOR LIVING

Cleansed and cured?

Many common health problems can

all be easily solved with one simple

approach according to a leading New

Zealand Medical Herbalist Brett Elliott.

He found in his clinical practice that

most of his clients have similar common

health complaints and that it all could be

traced back to digestive disorders. Did

you know up to 50% of the population

suffer from common health conditions

like; chronic constipation, acid reflux,

bloating, gas, ulcers, irritable bowel

syndrome, crohn’s disease, coeliac

disease, haemorrhoids, gallstones,

cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure,

abdominal weight gain, skin complaints

and many more and can all come back to

a poor digestive system.

He wanted to find a simple solution

everyone could use to support their

bodies natural healing without the side

effects of pharmaceutical medications

that often only ease or cover the

symptoms without healing as well as

often having many side effects. Brett

knew everything in the body depends on

the digestive system working properly

and so went about developing “The

Ultimate Herbal Detox Body Cleanse

Program” a simple to use two week

program. It not only supports the whole

digestive system but also helps cleanse

the entire body of toxins and parasites.

The program contains four different

all herb formulas all in capsule form

that need to be taken twice daily. These

capsules can be blended into a smoothie

if you prefer. Colon-aid is designed to

support a healthy bowel movement,

increases the secretion of gastric

juices and bile and promote appetite

and digestion. Digez-aid soothes and

stimulates healthy

digestion and

absorption of

vital nutrients.

Sym-lax is a

bulking fibre to

cleanse and heal

the intestines

and bowels. It

also makes you

feel less hungry.

Liva-food is the

final nutrient

rich formula to

support a healthy

liver function.

It supports

detoxing the

body of toxins

and heavy

metals.

The program supports the bodies’

organs to do their job. The formulas are

New Zealand made and contain a total

of 24 high potency herbs making it quite

possibly the most comprehensive “do

it yourself ” herbal detox body cleanse

program in the world. Brett has refined

the formula over 20 years and has now

sold over 100, 000 kits world-wide. He

regularly receives incredible feedback

from users with many re-doing the

program once or twice yearly.

With toxic overload and many

diseases sky-rockerting now is the

time to make a positive change by

cleansing, nourishing and helping build

your body to a better health.

The Ultimate Herbal Detox and

further information is available

from the Natural Health Advisers

and Medical Herbalists at Marshall’s

Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757.
