Stapletons Rd resident

Rick Blackburn whose house

“I am absolutely against it.

This is right in the middle

Blackburn.

Residents

still angry

over

motorway

concerns

• By Bea Gooding

RESIDENTS AFFECTED by

major roadworks in northern

Christchurch are worried for their

safety in anticipation of increased

traffic in the area.

The extension of the Northern

Motorway feeds into the St Albans

area, with the project delivered in

three distinct stages – the Northern

Arterial extension, Cranford St

upgrade and the controversial

Downstream Effects Management

Plan.

The Christchurch Northern Corridor

Alliance’s $240m motorway is

expected to be completed next year.

But in spite of the project nearing

completion, the St Albans community

still demand solutions to their

concerns.

The project aims to improve

safety, reduce congestion and lower

travel times – but the St Albans

community continues to disagree.

Said St Albans resident Mark

Wilson, who spoke to Nor’West

News on behalf of the community:

“Do we just accept our fate, or

continue to push for the community

over commuting traffic?”

New World Fendalton

emerges transformed

AFTER AN 18-month

refurbishment, New World

Fendalton has emerged

transformed with the

completion of the supermarket’s

extensive revamp.

The upgrade has seen a

complete re-design of the building,

with the supermarket’s

size increasing by 500 sq m.

The number of checkouts has

boosted along with an expanded

range of products on offer.

Brothers James and Richard

Turner are continuing their

family legacy as third-generation

owners and operators of New

World Fendalton.

Said James: “It really has been

a team effort, and to see our

community enjoy the refurbished

store has been incredibly

rewarding. It brings together the

hard work of so many people.”

Other new features include an

ecostore refillery and the installation

of a new butchery counter.

In addition, energy-saving

refrigeration and a daylight

harvesting system to reduce

electricity use has been installed

in a bid to reduce the store’s

carbon footprint.

New World Fendalton has a

strong family history. The brothers’

great grandfather Walter

Turner immigrated to Christchurch

when he was just 14-yearsold

and secured a job in a local

grocery store, and eventually

owned the store in 1936.

Walter’s son, Jim, affectionately

known as ‘Gentleman Jim,’ took

over the store in 1961 and had

owned it up until his death in

2016. Originally part of Fendalton

Mall, the Memorial Ave store

had been owned by the Turner

family since its opening and up

until 1970, it was named Turners

Grocers.

Richard believed their greatgrandfather

Walter and grandfather

Jim would be proud of

the supermarket’s evolution and

continuation of its characteristic

family business charm.

Said Richard: “Supermarkets

have changed a lot since the

business opened back in the

1930s. I think changes we have

made will ensure we continue

to provide a top-class shopping

experience for decades to come,

just like our grandfathers did

before us.”

James and Richard are

carrying on the family legacy,

continuing to be a mainstay

of New Zealand’s grocery

collective, but also an

integral cornerstone of the

local western Christchurch

community.

In Brief

MCLEANS ISLAND SAFETY

Safety concerns on Pound

Rd and Mcleans Island Rd

were raised by workers in the

area at the latest Waimāero/

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board meeting.

The speed limit was reduced to

80km/h, but large numbers of

heavy vehicles passing by still

posed risks.

LANGDONS RD TRAFFIC

Langdons Rd residents have

been informed of possible

solutions regarding safety

concerns when entering or

exiting properties due to the new

Northlink shopping complex.

The Waipapa/Papanui-Innes

Community Board advised that

white lines will be re-installed

near driveways and the city

council will regularly monitor

the situation going forward.

GRANTS APPROVED

A $500 grant has been approved

for Kayleigh Anne Wheeler as

she heads to the 2020 World

Irish Dance Championships in

Dublin, Ireland this April. A

group of Papanui High School

students will also receive a

grant of $1800 for attending

the Australian International

Music Festival this July in

Community split in two: Where to from here?

Mark Wilson

writes about

how the

Christchurch

Northern

Corridor

motorway

will

adversely

affect the St Albans

community

THE DOWNSTREAM effects

on St Albans from the new

Northern motorway coming

along Cranford Street will be

considerable and permanent.

The project has been delivered

in three distinct stages – not as

an overall package of work:

1. Northern Arterial Extension

(NArT)

2. Cranford St Upgrade (CSU)

3. Downstream Effects Management

Plan (DEMP).

The NArT and CSU required

resource consent and were subject

to local, regional and central

government laws and regulations.

However the city council

and the New Zealand Transport

Agency (NZTA) decided the

DEMP – the direct impacts on

the community – did not warrant

the same level of scrutiny.

The motorway traffic would

use the existing Cranford St corridor

from Innes Rd south. This

meant no requirement by the city

council to purchase property, no

resource consents, and a ‘sweat

the asset’ attitude.

Only through community

pressure was an additional clause

added ‘for a period of 10 years

after opening’, the city council

must monitor the downstream

effects of traffic from the NArT

on residential areas, not arterial

roads. Mitigation is required if

an increase of 30 per cent traffic

attributable to the NArT occurs.

The plan lacks any restriction

on the amount of traffic allowed

to travel along St Albans’ arterial

roads. Consequently there is an

expectation of an almost 100 per

cent increase in traffic volumes

within five years of the NArT

opening.

Mitigation for residential areas

has focused on keeping traffic on

arterials and deterring rat runners

commuting through local

streets with various measures.

These include turning restrictions,

speed restrictions, and

traffic ‘calming.’

These restrictions also impact

residents trying to access or exit

their local streets. But mitigation

doesn’t address the cause of the

problem, by definition it merely

looks at limiting damage.

GEOFF

SLOAN

The community wants a

traffic demand management

solution to the NArT problem,

such as public transport and

high occupancy vehicle priority

measures to reduce single

occupancy traffic. This TDM

stance has won some concessions

from the city council who will

dedicate any additional lanes

on Cranford St to HOV and PT

only, leaving one northbound

and one southbound lane

unrestricted on St Albans’

arterials.

Another win was making Environment

Canterbury and the

Waimakariri District Council

bring forward and expand the

express bus service utilising

the NArT route, with park and

ride facilities at Rangiora and

Kaiapoi.

Outcomes from the most

recent meeting were: there is still

much the community can fight

for and influence, even though

contractors are now digging up

roads and large scale city council

engagements are over.

Public transport must improve,

we want one authority in

charge. Public transport must be

run as a service not an out-dated

business model.

We are motivated and will be

making noise.

Entering and exiting

properties will be dangerous, and

the ability to access residential

streets is severely compromised

with multiple blocks needing to

be travelled to get home.

Pedestrian and cyclist safety

has also been compromised with

the focus on getting as many

cars to flow down the corridors,

essentially Cranford St has been

given to the cars.

We don’t accept that, and will

continue to fight it.

Attitudes and Lattitudes

“As an American down under for more than 37 years, I realise I have

become addicted to the Southern Latitudes and the continuously

changing landscape of New Zealand. The bounteous flora, fauna,

landscape and weather provide a rich smorgasbord of images, never

static.”

“My painting process usually begins with a single object. Following

several preparatory sketches. I then start the process of adding other

images, as well as fabricated bits and pieces. It is the unforgiving

aspect of watercolour painting and the flexibility of moving three

dimensional components around on the surface that excites me.

Using a combination of fabricated tromp l’oeil paper objects and

the underlying painted surface, I hope to create work that is both

completely familiar and yet new again. Like life itself, each work

resonates with both the story and history associated with some objects,

and the imagined potential of others.”

This exhibition is John’s fourth at Little River Gallery. His passions in

life clearly drive the content of his art. Fishing, observing birds and

weather, nostalgic collections, conservation, typography and word

play are skillfully rendered and arranged with the designer’s eye. It is

difficult to appreciate the three dimensionality of John’s work without

the work before you. We love the appreciative sounds coming from

the gallery as the observer realises the extra dimension and life like

qualities John manages to achieve with paper.

Mural brightens Bishopdale

LOCAL SCHOOLS and street

artists have banded together to

create an interactive mural; a

pop of colour aimed to brighten

Bishopdale.

The selfie-friendly mural, created

by street artist Jake Clark,

featured a kereru, kea, bees and

sunflowers, complemented by a

sky and mountain scene that can

be found at the Bishopdale Village

Green.

Mr Clark, who has worked

on multiple city projects, drew

inspiration from flora and fauna

in the area.

“I wanted to create something

to reflect the surrounding area.

I used the narrative of the mural

to place native birds in the sky

scene,” said Mr Clark.

“An element from the brief

was to include a pair of wings

for photo opportunities so that

people can get a selfie with the

wings behind them.”

Mr Clarke believed that areas

like the Village Green were essential

to the regeneration of

Christchurch and the local community.

“It has been great to add to the

open space and collaborate with

the community to deliver something

we can be really proud of,”

he says.

Several special art panels will

also adorn the wall in the next

Inspired by the theme of

“windows over Bishopdale,”

students from Isleworth School,

Emmanuel Christian School,

Breens Intermediate, Casebrook

Intermediate and Papanui High

School have created the five

panels.

Said Mr Clark: “The positive

feedback and the impressive artwork

from our local schools has

been a highlight for me.”

“I hope that people get a lift from

the artworks and can take some

pride in this great little area.”

The new work – on a local

business wall – contributed to a

regeneration programme for the

central area, including the development

UPROAR: Temporary units

at Linwood Village will be

moved to Guild St for social

housing if the city council

approves the plans.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

•From page 1

“The site is not suited in any

way, shape or form for this

development. I recognise that

social housing is a need, but a

much better place for this would

be the old Shirley Boys’ High

School site.”

The SBHS site on North Pde

is flat and closer to amenities

such as The Palms. The Guild St

site is not flat and leads to the removal

of a 50-year-old heritage

tree, limited on-street parking,

more congestion and only has

one access point, he said.

Fifteen temporary units were

purchased by the Christchurch

Methodist Mission from its

previous owners, the Ōtautahi

Community Housing Trust.

Last week, a community

information evening was led by

the CMM outlining their intentions

for the units. The mission’s

executive director Jill Hawkey

said prospective tenants were

for families who had severe and

persistent housing needs according

to the Ministry of Social

Development.

Said Mrs Hawkey: “CMM will

comply with stipulated conditions

of consent and all relevant

building procedures, requirements

and standards.”

The passionate crowd of 60

people were not convinced.

Although they supported housing

the homeless, their main

concerns were the dwellings

would not comply with the city

council’s regulations on character

areas, and were outraged at

the lack of consultation.

Other concerns included rubbish

management and the unit’s

size and proximity of each other.

Earthworks required to install

the units do not comply with the

council’s district plan according

to neighbouring residents.

Said a city council spokesperson:

“The application is going

through a process to decide

whether it requires public

notification and if it should be

granted.

“The application will be decided

by a hearings panel, which will

carry out deliberations in a public

meeting.”

Waipapa/

Papanui-

Innes

Community

Board

deputy

chair Simon

Britten

writes

about the

concerns raised over the

new Northlink shopping

complex.

KMART’S NEW Papanui store

in Langdons Rd will open next

month. Development at the site is

bringing new shops to Papanui,

but also safety concerns.

As curator of Think Papanui

I’ve been taking an interest in

issues around Langdons Rd for

a while. I have seen a positive

reaction to the Northlink development,

especially the pending

arrival of Kmart. On the other

hand I have also heard consistent

questions and concerns about

traffic, safety, parking, and access.

Construction activity has

generated a lot of heavy vehicle

movements, and until recently

many trades vehicles were

parked on the road outside.

Heavy construction traffic will

ease as work is completed, and

it is good to see construction

vehicles now using off-street

parking, but we will see more

delivery trucks accessing the site

as well as customers. The road

BUSY: Langdons Rd residents have raised concerns about safe access to their street.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

is also increasingly used for allday

parking by people working

nearby, as well as Papanui High

School students.

With visibility restricted by

so many cars parked along the

increasingly busy road, residents

have more difficulty exiting their

properties, and it’s harder for

traffic to safely navigate intersections

with side streets such as

Sails and Chapel Sts. A bouquet

to Mitre 10 for their new fence at

Chapel St, which improves sight

lines as well as nicely matching

the old Sanitarium fence on their

main frontage.

I have seen a number of people

wondering what might be done

to improve the already-busy

intersection of Langdons and

Greers Rds where turning right

in and out can be a challenge.

Good news – I read in the

resource consent that the

Northlink Centre cannot fully

open “until there is a contract

let for an intersection upgrade

to traffic lights” at Langdons/

Greers. However, this condition

restricts a future third stage at

the rear of the development – the

intersection will remain as-is

when Kmart opens. I am also not

aware of any city council budget

tagged for the intersection, nor

any obligation on the developer

to stump up cash.

What to do? The Waipapa/

Papanui-Innes Community

Board has already identified our

traffic network and community

road safety amongst priority

areas to focus on in our draft

three-year plan.

Consultation on the plan

closed yesterday and I look forward

to working with my board

colleagues to reviewing public

input, finalising the plan, and

then implementing it through

this term.

I am grateful to residents who

have taken the time to contact

the board with concerns – please

remember that anyone can raise

issues with the board in writing,

and you are also most welcome

to attend a board meeting and

speak in the public forum.

Please let us know your

thoughts, contact details can be

found on the city council website

and at the Papanui Service

Centre.

Debate rages over

safety of birds

• By Matt Slaughter

THE CHRISTCHURCH 360

Trail group says birdlife will not

be harmed if a pathway is built

along the western edge of the

Avon-Heathcote Ihutai Estuary.

This is based on the final draft

of a Boffa Miskell report commissioned

by the city council

that says: “Actual levels of

disturbance to birds as a result

of the pathway constitute very

low, low or moderate ecological

magnitudes of effect.

“Opportunities to avoid and

minimise these effects are available.”

The Christchurch 360 Trail

is 135km so far and includes

walking tracks around the city’s

radius. The section beside the

estuary is one of the last needed

to complete the trail.

Christchurch 360 Trail chairwoman

Judith Millar, who lives

in St Albans, said the pathway

proposal includes measures

which will protect birds from

threats such as pedestrians,

cyclists and dogs.

However, Avon Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai Trust chairman

Kit Doudney said the trust “absolutely

refute that.”

The trust and Redcliffs

Residents Association are

concerned building the pathway

in the proposed area beside the

Bromley Oxidation Ponds will

put godwits and about 100 other

bird species which use the estuary

in jeopardy.

Mr Doudney believes the

pathway proposal goes against

the estuary’s status as part of the

East Asian-Australasian Flyway,

which is supposed to protect

birds that use it.

He wants the pathway built

further away from the estuary

and the city council is investigating

this option.

But Mrs Millar said the

current proposal includes

PROTECTION: Christchurch 360 Trail chairwoman Judith Millar

says science shows birdlife will be safe if a pathway is built

beside the Bromley oxidation ponds. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

measures to stop birds from

being harmed.

“The [city] council is

investigating mitigation

procedures to deal with the

issues that the estuary trust

people raised and we agree that

there should be measures. We

think there should be screening,

we think that a low barbed

wire between the trail and the

pond [estuary] levee is all that’s

necessary.”

Said city council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge: “The pathway

would be flanked by a security

fence several metres to the

pond side of the path, and

screen planting along the estuary

shore. Planting along most

of the estuary shore already

exists; the project is to provide

screening of most of the remaining

gaps.”

Mr Rutledge said additional

protective measures, which

may also be considered include

“educational signage promoting

the site values, dog exclusion

signage, regular monitoring

of compliance, track closure

at certain times” and “vehicle

barriers at entry points.”

Mr Doudney said these measures

won’t work and birds will

suffer.

“Since last winter, we’ve got

new data from a student who

was working over the summer

on bird disturbance. There will

be a massive impact.”

Mr Doudney believes the

360 Trail group’s members

are avoiding meeting with

the trust so they don’t have

to acknowledge its concerns.

He said the trail group most

recently pulled out of a meeting

on February 17.

Said Mrs Millar: “That is not

accurate.

“It was decided that a meeting

with them [the trust] when their

opinion was so entrenched was

not necessarily going to be helpful,

given that there is a process

under way, which the council

has outlined.”

Volleyballers

NOR’WEST NEWS

make their mark

CANTERBURY age-group

volleyballers continue to make an

impression on the national stage.

Eight volleyballers have made

national squads

St Andrew’s College’s Kate Allan,

St Margaret’s Rosa Davidson,

Burnside High School duo Taylah

Holdem and Rosa Vesty and

Lincoln’s Ellen Watts have made

the national women’s youth

Commonwealth Games squad.

St Margaret’s Ella Ballantyne

and St Andrew’s Tineke Hinton

have gained selection in the under-17

women’s beach squad.

Riccarton High School’s

Joseph Baxter has made the New

Zealand under-17 men’s beach

squad.

Burnside and Canterbury

coach Sam Ryburn says for those

picked in youth Commonwealth

Games squads it is a sign they are

on the radar for higher honours.

The squad will compete in

Vanuatu at the end of the year

to get a taste of international

competition.

Taylah and Rosa, who both live

in Papanui, won both the South

Island and New Zealand secondary

school beach titles this past

season.

Taylah, 15, says it’s been a heck

of a season.

“It didn’t hit me until school

nationals what I had achieved,”

she said.

“We’ve done heaps of training

as a squad and as a combination

and I’m fortunate I can play both

front-court and back-court.

“Ryburn came up to me at

athletics day when I was in Year

9 and said I should be playing

volleyball.

Mostly I did the high jump,

long jump and triple jump before

then.

“It has all happened very fast.”

Rosa, 15, says the Burnside

environment and culture has

helped elevate players like her at

the school.

Both of Rosa’s parents played

volleyball with her Mum, Paula

Vesty, coaching at a national

level.

“I’d been playing in the

backyard for a while but I didn’t

take it seriously until I got to

Burnside.

“I’ve been around it since I was

little so I always knew I wanted

to play at some point.”

TALENT: Rosa Vesty and Taylah Holdem now have national

selections to go with their stellar beach season.

ADVERTORIAL

Never for one minute have we regretted it

Paul and Marlene

absolutely love living in

Ngaio Marsh Retirement

Village where they have a

spacious townhouse and an

active lifestyle that reflects

their earlier busy lives.

In their younger years

Paul and Marlene saw a

great deal of New Zealand

and some of Australia

and other countries,

before they settled down

and raised a family

in Christchurch.

Now, they have no

regrets about the move

into the Papanui village.

The pair met in Waiouru

where Marlene was a

teacher. Then Paul was

posted to Officer Cadet

School in Portsea on the

Mornington Peninsula

about 100km from

Melbourne’s CBD. Marlene

also moved over to Victoria

and soon enough the pair

were married. They lived

in Mount Martha, where

Ryman is now building

a village.

Paul’s army service saw

the pair travel further

afield to countries like

Malaya, Singapore, Borneo.

Paul served for a short

time in Vietnam.

Life eventually brought

them back to Christchurch

and they settled in Upper

Riccarton, living in the

same home for 37 years

and bringing up two

children. But nearly three

years ago they decided it

no longer had the same

neighbourhood feel and

they started looking at

alternatives.

Having inspected a

few retirement villages

Paul and Marlene love life at Ngaio Marsh Village.

that did not match up to

expectations, Marlene

remembered a previous

visit to Ngaio Marsh.

Marlene says as soon as

they arrived at the village

Paul was very keen, and

after a chat to village

Sales Advisor Marie Kyle-

Stevenson they were ready.

It only took a couple of

weeks to sell the house and

the decision to move was

totally the right one.

“Never for one minute

have we regretted it,”

Paul says.

Since moving in, nearly

three years ago, both Paul

and Marlene have become

quite involved in village

life. That’s when they can

tear themselves away from

their lovely townhouse,

which is surrounded

by gardens and a gentle

stream running at the back

of the property.

“We’ve got marvellous

neighbours and a lovely

outlook, we’re not

hemmed in,” Marlene says.

They often take the car

to visit their children and

grandchildren or walk to

nearby cafés, at Northlands

or Merivale malls.

Marie says as a Sales

Advisor she likes to

point out the nearby

amenities for residents.

The location is close

to Papanui boutique

shops, and a library.

“Coming into a

retirement village, there

is a wide community

and varied activities the

residents can participate

in. You can also enjoy your

current activities as well,

so it enhances your life,”

Marie says.

Other village facilities

include a putting green, a

shop, a hair salon, a spa,

library, gym and bar.

Paul helps organise

lawn bowls, Marlene plays

croquet, and both are

involved in walking groups

and village activities like

the annual market day,

where Paul can be seen

selling raffles to visitors

and residents.

Marlene says she used

to swim at Jellie Park

but now chooses the

immediacy of the village

pool and spa, which are

free to use. She swims six

times a week and Paul two

times a week. They like to

join in Happy Hour and

Wednesday and Friday

night social events.

“The other thing we

like about the village, is

the staff are brilliant …

the gardeners do anything

for you.”

Paul says he often gets

asked by outsiders about

village life and he tells

them to make the move

because it results in no

financial surprises on the

home front. There is a

general air of “stress-free

living” and no need for

a lawnmower.

“That’s his big delight

– no lawns, no edges, no

hedges,” Marlene says.

She adds that when

people ask if they

had a good weekend,

they say every day is a

weekend day.

Townhouses are now available.

Feijoa season signals the end of summer

• By Ian Knott

It’s March already, and that

means the start of feijoa

season. Has there ever been

a more polarising fruit than

feijoas? Love them or hate

them, these green, oval

nuggets of floral tartness can

bring an extra dimension to

many sweet dishes

Feijoa and blueberry

shortcake crumble

Serves 12

Ingredients

2 cups peeled and chopped feijoas

1 punnet (125g) fresh blueberries

1 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp ground ginger

Crumble topping

¼ cup ground almonds

¼ cup flour

½ cup wholegrain oats

¼ cup soft brown sugar

50g butter, melted

Shortcake

100g butter, softened

½ cup sugar

1 ½ cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

Directions

Preheat oven to 170 deg C

sides of a 23cm square cake tin

with baking paper. Mix together

chopped feijoas, blueberries,

sugar and ground ginger and set

aside.

Prepare the crumble topping.

Put ground almonds, flour,

wholegrain oats and sugar into a

mixing bowl. Stir through melted

butter. Set aside.

Prepare the shortcake. Beat

together butter and sugar until

pale. Beat in the egg. Mix in flour

and baking powder to form a soft

dough. Press dough evenly into

the base of the prepared tin.

Spoon over the prepared fruit

to cover the base. Scatter over the

crumble mix.

Bake for 40-45min until top is

golden and base cooked. Leave

in the tin for 20min before

carefully lifting it out, with the

baking paper onto a cake rack to

cool. Serve cut into pieces with

Warm spiced feijoa

doughnuts

Makes about 14

Ingredients

1¼ cups plain, gluten-free flour

½ tsp baking powder (gf)

Pinch of salt

½ tsp each of ground cinnamon

and mixed spice

3 Tbsp caster sugar

1 egg

3 Tbsp milk

1 Tbsp melted butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

5 medium feijoas, peeled and

diced into 1cm pieces

Vegetable oil

Cinnamon sugar

½ cup caster sugar

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

Directions

Put 5cm of vegetable oil in a

deep, medium-sized saucepan

and heat to 170 deg C on a sugar

thermometer or until a piece of

bread dropped into the oil turns

golden within 30sec.

Combine the sugar and

cinnamon in a shallow dish and set

aside for rolling cooked doughnuts.

Combine all the dry ingredients

in a large bowl. Whisk the egg,

milk, butter and the vanilla together

then stir into the flour along with

the feijoas until well combined.

Carefully drop tablespoons of

the batter into the pan and cook

for about 2min until a golden

colour and puffed, turning

to cook on all sides. Don’t

overcrowd the pan as the oil

temperature will drop rapidly and

the doughnuts will be heavy.

Remove with a slotted spoon

and drain on paper towels. Roll in

the cinnamon sugar then place on

a wire cooling rack in a 100 deg C

oven until all the doughnuts are

cooked. Eat immediately.

SENIOR LIVING

Staying well in an

unhealthy world

Viruses can make us very unwell and some

people may even die from them. However if

we keep ourselves as healthy as possible we can

greatly reduce the chances of becoming unwell.

The Wuhan coronavirus has spread fast and

does appear to be a particularly nasty virus, so

it makes sense to do what we can to improve

our health and immunity. I believe it is our

weakened immune system that is the real threat,

not a virus and if we restore and optimise our

immune system we will have a much better

chance of staying well.

Liquid Olive Leaf Extract (OLE) is the first

amazing natural product I would suggest.

OLE contains powerful compounds including

oleuropein that can destroy invading organisms

(viruses) directly while stopping viruses

replicating and causing disease. OLE can also

help rid the body of long term infections,

bacteria and fungi that are compromising our

immune system. It is also a super antioxidant

that can support stabilized blood sugar, blood

pressure and blood flow.

Researchers have shown Vitamin C to have

powerful antiviral activity against all types

of viruses and to support a healthy immune

system. In one well-controlled, randomized

study, just 200mg/day of vitamin C given to

the elderly resulted in 80% fewer deaths in the

vitamin C group. Dr. Robert F. Cathcart, who

has had extensive experience treating viral

diseases remarked, “I have not seen any flu yet

that was not cured or markedly ameliorated

by massive doses of vitamin C.” Frederick R.

Klenner, MD, chest specialist has said “Some

physicians would stand by and see their patients

die rather than use vitamin C”.

According to Dr. Thomas Levy’s clinical

opinion one gram of properly-produced

and orally-ingested liposomal vitamin C is

as or more effective than 5 to 10 grams of

intravenously given vitamin C. If you want

the best benefits and absorption this is the

way to go. However he also warns many of the

liposomal vitamin C’s he has tested are not true

liposomal products. He guarantees the LivOn

brand is a true liposomal product.

Vitamin D3, zinc and selenium are also vital in

sufficient amounts for a healthy immune system.

These are some of the most important

VITAmIN c

Lypo-Spheric vitamin C is quickly absorbed

by the body & carried into the cells. It

supercharges the immune system. Dr.

Thomas Levy’s clinical opinion is one

gram of Lypo-C is equivalent to 5 to 10g

intravenously given vitamin C, making it

the most absorbable vitamin C available. However

he also warns many of the liposomal vitamin C’s he has tested are not

true liposomal products. He guarantees the LivOn brand is a true liposomal product.

REAL ESTATE

Heritage Charm, Contemporary Build

204 Cannon Hill Crescent, Mt Pleasant

Auction: Friday 13 March, in rooms from 11am,

at Ray White Metro, 2/76 Hereford Street (unless sold prior)

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 4 toilets, 2 living rooms, swimming pool

Listing no. OPA24706

Rich in traditional detailing and commanding

instant admiration, this homestead-style

abode delivers a luxurious hillside lifestyle

and combines the comfort of contemporary

living with timeless design.

Offering a majestic presence, this property

visually epitomises character yet enjoys

the perks of more modern construction.

Originally built 1994 and with the exterior

reclad in 2014 offering you plenty of peace

of mind. Occupying a substantial 1775sqm

section that overlooks Castle Rock, it also

boasts unimpeded views over the city and the

Alps. The superbly presented property makes

further use of its outstanding position with an

alluring swimming pool, a level lawn, decking

and mature gardens architecturally designed

by Goom Landscapes, promising endless

hours of family fun and alfresco entertaining.

The home’s aesthetic appeal is further

reinforced indoors where tasteful styling,

timber accents, contrasting hues and ceiling

beams create an attractive setting for everyday

living.

Beautifully arranged over two levels, the

ground floor responds superbly to modern

family living. The generous open plan kitchen,

dining and lounge area conveniently adjoin

a formal living zone to promote elegant

entertaining or effortless relaxation.

All accommodation is situated upstairs

and includes two master bedroom options,

with each enjoying a walk-in wardrobe and

ensuite. The remaining two bedrooms share a

family bathroom while a total of four toilets

are found within the 210sqm floor plan.

Optimally placed to capture sunshine,

this home also benefits from the additional

warmth provided by heat pump, a gas fire and

excellent insulation. An established driveway,

easy drive-on access and off-street parking are

further highlights of this hillside home.

The various offerings of Mt Pleasant are all

located within easy reach including schooling,

numerous walks and parks, and the myriad

of stores and eateries that lie beyond in

Ferrymead.

Secure your very own escape from the

ordinary.
