Hornby residents back

fight over waste plant

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A GROUP of Hornby residents

have stood beside Prebbleton to

fight against a waste plant from

going in their backyard – taking

their protest to the city council

last week.

Protestors attended a city

council meeting on Thursday –

with many dressed in protective

suits and masks.

In a fiery deputation, Greater

Hornby Residents’ Association

treasurer Ross Houliston called the

consultation process over Waste

Management Ltd’s application to

operate a waste stabilisation and

treatment facility a “dictatorship.”

It followed a deputation from

Prebbleton resident Diane White

on how the plant could impact the

area.

Waste Management has applied

to expand its current site and operate

the toxic waste treatment plant

at 305 Marshs Rd in South Hornby.

In its resource consent application,

it said the plant will treat and

manage items, such as pesticides,

acid, used tyres and other types of

rubbish. • Turn to page 4

Big turnout likely for

Run or walk

for a

good cause

THE 46TH running of the Les

Mills City2Surf will be held on

Sunday and this year’s event

looks set to be one of the biggest

in recent times.

Runners, joggers and walkers

of all fitness levels will take on

either the 14km or 6km options,

both finishing at Ferrymead

Playing Fields.

Event organiser Jon Holmes

says entries are up on last year’s

event which attracted close to

8000 participants.

“It doesn’t matter if you

haven’t trained. Either distance

can be walked. It’s just about

getting out on a Sunday morning,

getting a breath of fresh

air and doing something that

gets the heart pumping,” said

Holmes.

The 14km event starts at 9am

at Pioneer Stadium, and the

6km event starts at 10am at

Hansens Park, all culminating

for a massive finish at Ferrymead

where there will be

plenty of entertainment and

prizes on offer.

Participants will also have free

entry into Ferrymead Historic

Park.

“We’re going fizzy-free again

this year. We’ve also changed

from a free Powerade to a

free Pump at the finish line.

That’s another step in the right

direction for health,” said

Holmes.

This year’s partner charity is

the Prostate Cancer Foundation

of New Zealand. If you wish to

Community Board’s priorities.

SUFFRAGETTE MEMORIAL

Clearer signage will not be provided

to recognise the Signage

Protest over Prebbleton facility

A Kidney Toxicity Survivor

Over the next 2 months, I thought id write

about two cases that required much input

and care from our entire team of experts. We

treat hundreds of sick patients weekly and

many of them spend weeks in our hospital

being nursed back to full health.

We have so many

special long term

patients that we all

connect with on

different levels but I

cant write them all up

here. We don’t have

favourites because

we love and want to

treat all the animals

that walk through our

doors. I chose these

two patients as they

highlight diseases we commonly see and

treat here and they also show incredible

owner commitment and positivity towards

the whole process. It has to be a team

approach and great communication is key.

I know we have the right team of people,

hospital setup and equipment to do our best

job possible but clients need to be onboard

for, at times, a long, complicated, emotional

journey. You can absolutely guarantee

though we will always do our BEST for your

pet.

TORIN is a young Birman who presented

suddenly unwell 3 months ago - lethargic,

losing weight, vomiting and just not himself.

After a series of testing we deemed Torin

was suffering from

Acute Kidney Failure

due to a suspected

toxicity (possibly

Lilies). His creatinine

kidney enzyme level

was through the roof

, he was dehydrated

and we suspected

a bacterial UTI. He

was immediately

admitted for intensive

care treatment with

intravenous fluids

and supportive care

medications. He spent 2 weeks as a hospital

inpatient receiving Intravenous fluids, food

and medications were fed to him through

a feeding tube in his neck and every day

his devoted owners visited and spent time

cuddling, grooming him and nursing him

back to good health. Once home he was

continually checked many times a week to

make sure he wasn’t deteriorating. Torin

was an incredibly tolerant and an easy to

handle patient which was lucky as he was

jabbed with needles constantly, had oral

medications daily and had every test possible

including radiographs and ultrasounds.

In the end, Torin survived his kidney

failure attack. When we was very unwell

his creatinine reading was greater than

1202umol/L - now

it is normal at

187umol/L. Many

patients wouldn’t

recover from this.

He had incredibly

special owners who

completely trusted

and listened to our

recommendations

and supported us

in his recovery by

visiting often, which was what Torin needed.

Kim encouraged him to eat one bikkie at a

time from her phone and he got to wander

around a room not being caged all day.

Our hospital nursing team was absolutely

A1 fantastic at catering for all his needs,

respecting him, treating him gently and

spending lots of time giving him cuddles and

grooms. We were honest with Torin’s owners

about his prognosis and the time required

for him to start showing improvement. In

this case I believe the feeding tube was the

game changer as we could deliver all his

medications and nutritional requirements

without going near his

mouth and he could be

successfully managed at

home, with the people he

loved and trusted.

We all get super excited

when we get to catch

up with Torin. He’s like a

member of the family and

we all feel proud that we

played a part in getting

him home. Without fail he

urinates in my room on

arrival- not sure what this means exactly, but

then I get cuddles so I’m taking that as a win.

advice regarding renal disease, please call

‘Tracking down birth parents, the right thing to do’

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ANDREI MOORE could have

been one of tens of thousands

of babies to grow up in an

orphanage in Romania.

It is why the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

deputy chairman is determined

to give back to the Halswell community

– his home for the last 29

years.

Born in Târgoviste, Romania,

in 1991, it was a time when more

than 10,000 children were abandoned

in orphanages – leaving

them subject to neglect, physical

and sexual abuse and drug use to

control behaviour.

The overpopulation of children

was a result of communist

Romanian president Nicolae

Ceausescu banning contraception

and abortion in 1966 unless

the mother was more than

40-years-old or already had four

children in care.

By 1977, people were taxed

more for being childless.

Mr Moore’s birth parents

Gabriel and Lavinia Toader could

not afford to raise him and he was

due to go to an orphanage.

“It is a totally bizarre scenario

. . . one of my biological brothers

was not so lucky, he grew up in

an orphanage,” he said.

But at two weeks old, the dull

outlook for Mr Moore’s life

drastically changed when he was

“intercepted” from the orphanage

and adopted by Karen and

Richard Moore.

Mr Moore’s father said his

parents “had nothing” and

when they found Andrei he was

“horribly underweight” and “ill”

already at two weeks old.

“I am really lucky to grow

up in a place such as Halswell

instead of remaining in an orphanage.

To be able to represent

a community that has given so

much means a huge amount,”

Mr Moore said.

Although he appreciates more

than most growing up in a quiet,

safe area of New Zealand, he

knew tracking down his birth

parents was the right thing to do.

“It felt like something that

needed to be done eventually,

while they are still alive and

while I am still alive. And the

other reason is my dad has been

nagging me for years.”

In 2017 Mr Moore was chosen

out of hundreds of applications,

to star on ThreeNow’s Lost and

Found – a documentary series

FAMILY:

Andrei Moore

(right) with

his adopted

father Richard

Moore (left),

his birth

father Gabriel

Toader and

his adopted

mother Karen

Moore in

Romania.

which sets about reuniting families,

uncovering cultural identity

and discovering lost family heritage.

“I didn’t do it to introduce two

more parents into my life. It was

more to meet and thank them

and know that was done,” Mr

Moore said.

It was not easy tracking down

his parents but through the television

show Mr Moore not only

met his parents but his sister and

brother.

“I found out I have three sisters

I never knew I had, I never knew

I was an uncle,” Mr Moore said.

All up, Mr Moore has six

brothers and three sisters from

different parents.

While having his personal life

laid out on a national television

show may not have been the

“ideal” way to find his long-lost

parents, Mr Moore knew it may

be the only way.

“When trying to find birth

parents on the other side of the

world that you haven’t been in

contact with over 20 years – you

are quite limited on where to

start and where to go.

Mr Moore hopes others

adopted as children may be

inspired to go on a similar

journey as him and find their

long-lost family.

Since the show re-aired this

month, Mr Moore said he has received

dozens of messages from

people encouraged to go out and

do the same thing.

While he has stayed in touch

with his siblings, he did not have

the same desire to keep in touch

with his parents.

Mr Moore will take over as

community board chairman

from November.

Clothes strangely

appearing

in backyard

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

IF YOU are missing the odd sock,

T-shirt or scrunchie – the culprit

could be a sneaky cat on the prowl

in South Hornby.

For the last three months,

mostly children’s clothing has

been mysteriously appearing

in Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board member Mark

Peter’s backyard.

The most recent items to appear

in his backyard in Glenora Pl was

a scrunchie and sock last week.

The items are most likely

coming from the Blankney St,

Witham St and Glenora Pl area,

Mr Peters said.

Although he doesn’t have any

solid proof, he suspects the puzzling

overnight appearances of

odd clothing on his property is a

cat, due to his yard being a “cat

thoroughfare.”

Mr Peters said he has only one

elderly cat and consistently has

about four to five cats wandering

through his yard from the neighbour’s

property.

He is thinking of installing a

night camera to get solid proof.

If you have lost a clothing

area, check the Greater Hornby

Decision on multi-storey house review soon

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A DECISION is likely to be

made this week on whether

a review is needed over the

construction of a large multistorey

house on a residential

street in Riccarton.

Commissioner David

Mountfort is expected to make

a decision early next week over

whether a section 128 review is

required of a new house constructed

on 36 Rata St.

The potential review is to consider

whether there are any inaccuracies

in the original resource

consent lodged in 2016 for the

house to be built before a subsequent

application was given the

green-light to go-ahead by the

city council in 2018.

City council’s head of resource

consents John Higgins said Mr

Mountfort is considering a city

council officer report alongside

additional information received

from the consent holder, three

adjacent neighbours and the city

council.

He said the commissioner

should be in a position to make

a decision on whether a section

128 review is required by early

next week.

The city council officer report

prepared by resource consent

principal adviser Hermione

Blair states she is of the opinion

that potential inaccuracies have

DECISION TIME: The city council is likely to make a decision

this week on whether a review is needed over the construction

been identified in the original

resource consent and a section

128 review can be invoked.

In Ms Blair’s opinion the

potential errors of most significance

are the depiction of the

northern recession plane which

if drawn correctly results in

breaching the recession plane

and the 2016 dwelling is shown

incorrectly on a sun study plan.

Information supplied to Mr

Mountfort following the city

council’s section 128 recommendation

report showed a city

council architect found while

completing shading diagrams

for the house in 2018, the 2016

plans incorrectly showed the

floor level of the house in relation

to ground level.

This means the plans showed

the house about 350mm lower

on the elevations than it actually

has been built.

This is why the 2016 house

WESTERN NEWS

prepared for the 2018 application

shows the house sitting higher

with a larger recession plane

breach than approved.

Mr Higgins said if a review is

necessary, Mr Mountfort will

either decide if any issues can be

addressed through the conditions

of the consent or if it needs

to be cancelled.

“In the latter case (the consent

is cancelled), a new resource

consent would be required,” he

said.

Last year, city council received

complaints from four nearby

properties along with concerns

raised from the Riccarton

Bush-Kilmarnock Residents’

Association and the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board.

The large house is being constructed

for carpet retailer and

interior design service Nextdore

director Michael Dore.

Last year, the city council

confirmed the house breached

multiple variations for a

residential zone – including

it did not meet the required

finished floor level and breached

recession planes.

But it also argued Mr Dore is

able to use the previous on-site

townhouse coverage and consent

as a baseline.

Mr Dore did not wish to

comment.

Street work ‘waste of money’

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

IN THE 25 years Graham Tait

has lived in Ilam, he has never

had a problem walking on his

street.

Having “hardly a crack in it”,

the 83-year-old can take his dog

for daily walks along Ryeland

Ave with ease.

But the city council disagrees

and has decided to tear up and

completely renew his street.

Work began recently to

replace the existing footpath,

removing the top surface, level

the formation below and relay a

new top surface.

In reply, Mr Tait has complained

to the city council

calling the $60,000 project a

“complete waste of money”

and would be better off spent

elsewhere.

He said residents were only

notified the Friday before the

work began.

Mr Tait said the money would

be better off spent at Tuirau

Place which has big tree roots in

the ground or the intersection

of Ilam and Maidstone Rd.

But city council’s city streets

maintenance manager Mark

Pinner saying as per its own

assessment, the road clearly has

cracks.

But Mr Tait said: “I am 83 I

can’t fall over in the street, it is

ridiculous,” he said.

The footpaths were last replaced

23 years ago.

Mr Tait said he was unlikely

to get much sympathy from his

neighbours or his wife.

“My wife said stop

complaining, it will be nice to

have a nice street to walk on,”

Mr Tait said.

Mr Pinner said the city

council aims to be proactive

in maintaining roads to avoid

future deterioration.

But he said the city council

can always take on feedback

and work to improve its

determination of sites to best

serve the public as a whole.

over looming

quarry decision

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

TEMPLETON AND Weedons

residents anxiously waiting to hear

if a quarry in their area will go

ahead can expect to hear a decision

over the next month.

The hearing for Fulton Hogan’s

proposal to open a quarry between

Dawsons, Jones, Maddisons and

Curraghs Rd closed on Wednesday.

An Environment Canterbury

spokeswoman said due to the

large-scale proposal, complex lay and

expert evidence, commissioners have

doubled the time frame to make a

decision to 30 working days.

Under section 115 of the Resource

Management Act, the independent

hearings panel chaired by

Rob van Voorthuysen, would have

15 working days to make a decision.

It will now be released on or

before April 24.

Mr van Voorthuysen said it has

doubled the 15 working day period

having considered the interests of

Supermarket 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-years-old 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

LEGACY: Richard (left) and

James Turner are thirdgeneration

owners and

as Turner’s Grocers until

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.

Empowering women

A HAIRDRESSING salon in

Hornby has partnered with a

charitable organisation to help

provide women the confidence

to shape their own financial

futures.

Just Cuts New Zealand

launched a partnership with

Dress for Success Christchurch

to mark International Women’s

Day last Sunday.

It means Dress for Success clients

can now redeem their style

cut for $20 which normally cost

$32 when presenting a partnership

voucher at any Just Cuts in

the country.

The launch was held last Sunday,

outside the Just Cuts salon

at The Hub Hornby.

Dress for Success aims to

provide appropriate clothing,

support and career development

tools to help women thrive in

work and life - it has supported

more than 4500 women since

2003.

Just Cuts franchise owner

Angela Turner said Just Cuts

Hornby is proud to be responsible

for this initiative which will

be rolled out nationwide.

“A great Style Cut is so important

for self-esteem and confidence,

and this voucher for Dress

for Success clients will be the

icing on the cake, or should I say,

their crowning glory,” she said.

Mrs Turner’s husband and

hairdresser Michael Turner said

INITIATIVE: Dress for

if the initiative goes well in New

Zealand, the next step is to take

it across to Australia.

Mr Turner said they had

confirmation from Just Cuts

founder, chief executive and

franchiser Denis McFadden who

wants to push for it as his end.

There are more than 200 Just

Cuts hair salons in Australia.

The event organised by The

Hub Hornby shopping centre

which has also teamed up with

Dress for Success will see quality

lightly worn clothing and accessories

donated to help women

enter the workforce.

Customers can take items

into sign written lockers at

participating retailers with the

additional option of including

an inspirational note for the

recipient.

DEDICATED: Burnside Park Tennis Club’s committed group of over-80s tennis players who

meet twice a week. They are (back row from left) – Michael Ellis, 80, Paul Straubel, 80, John

Age no barrier for

Burnside tennis group

• By Jacob Page

A GROUP of octogenarians

who have spent more than 440

years combined playing time at

the Burnside Park Tennis Club

have no interest in giving the

game away any time soon.

The 15 men and women are

all aged between 80 and 88 and

are believed to be the oldest

regular tennis playing group of

their kind in Christchurch. They

meet every Tuesday and Thursday

morning all year round.

They have spent a combined

443 years playing at the club.

The group play about 50 other

senior players over the age of 50.

Club spokesperson Allanah

James said the group were an inspiration

to everyone on court.

“I play with them and against

them and they run me round.

“I’ve just retired and I’m in my

early 60s and they’re all just so

inspirational,” she said.

“They are what I want to be

like when I am their age.

“It’s an endorsement for staying

active later in life.

Mrs James said the group

played 90min of tennis but most

of them turned up for a warmup

30min before matches start.

“They are so precise with their

shots, she said. “They know

where to place the ball to make

you run around that’s for sure.

“We felt it was time to celebrate

them for their continued

contribution to our club.”

One of the group, Monica

Devine, is the grandmother of

current White Ferns cricketer

Sophie Devine.

The two oldest are married

couple Peter, 88, and Adrienne

Rowe, 87.

Peter has been playing at the

club for 18 years and Adrienne

has been a club member for 34

years.

The longest playing member

of the over 80s is Ellen Harris

who has been playing at

Burnside for 55 years.

Stedman on track

for Tokyo Paralympics

• By Jacob Page

FORMER Middleton Grange

student and paralympic sprinter,

William Stedman has continued

his progression towards the

Tokyo Paralympics with three

strong results at the national

track and field championships at

Nga Puna Wai.

The 20-year-old won the senior

men’s long jump with a best effort

of 5.68m and then won the

400m in 55.22sec and the 200m

in 25.21 sec.

The Hillmorton resident was

the youngest member of the New

Zealand Paralympic team four

years ago at just 16.

Stedman, who suffers from

cerebral palsy, won bronze medals

in the T36 400m and 800m

events.

Stedman said in spite of strong

winds, he was happy with his

efforts, particularly in the long

jump.

That’s the best I’ve gone in the

long jump,” he said.

Stedman is studying engineering

part-time at the University

of Canterbury and believes it has

been easier to train for his second

Paralympic campaign than his

first.

“University is just a lot more

flexible than high school which

has really allowed me to focus on

my goals as an athlete.

He said there was more pressure

on him ahead of Tokyo

because he was such an unknown

four years ago but he believes he

is capable of handling the added

scrutiny.

“Last time nobody was really

expecting me to come away with

any (medals) and I did so this

time there may be more pressure

but I feel prepared,” he said.

held from August 25 to

How to protect yourself and others

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus

called coronavirus. There are simple steps you can take to protect you and your family/whānau.

Symptoms of COVID-19

The symptoms of COVID-19 are:

•a cough

•a high temperature (at least 38°C)

•shortness of breath.

These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have COVID-19. The symptoms are

similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

However, infections with mild symptoms such as cold-like symptoms or no symptoms

are likely, but it’s not known how common this is.

How to protect yourself and others

•Cough or sneeze into your elbow or by covering your mouth and nose with tissues.

•Put used tissues in the bin or a bag immediately.

•Wash your hands with soap and water often.

•Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

•Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

•Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects, such as doorknobs.

•Stay home if you feel unwell and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453.

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

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

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

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

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

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

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

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

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

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

balance. They teach a movement sequence

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

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

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

HIP PAIN

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

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated

than surgery. After only one treatment

you should know that it will work for you.

Call them before the end of March and

save $20.00 on that treatment.

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

and there is ample parking. To enquire about joint pain treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Grape seeds shown to have

remarkable health benefits!

According to researchers grape seeds

may hold the potential to treat and

prevent many devastating disorders.

The seeds have been found to contain

many powerful antioxidant such as

resveratrol, catechins, epicatechins,

proanthocyanadins and anthocyanins

as well as other nutrients that have

been shown to support the natural

healing process and even slow the

aging process.

Grape Seed Extract (GSE) has

been shown to reduce inflammation

and pain, increase cellular energy,

protect protein structures and

increase collagen production. The

powerful antioxidants in GSE can

tone and strengthen the blood

vessels, improve blood flow making

it valuable for circulatory disorders

of all kinds, including varicose veins,

haemorrhoids, hardening of the

arteries and impaired blood flow to

the brain. It is excellent for most skin

conditions because of the increase

of blood flow to the skin tissue thru

allowing more nutrients to the tissue

cells and better waste removal from

the cells. As well as this it supports

collagen production. For these reasons

many people report the skin looks

more healthy, smoother and with

better elasticity when using GSE.

GSE offers a natural alternative

for many people with hypertension

(High Blood Pressure). Higher than

normal blood pressure puts more

stress on organs and can lead to

atherosclerosis (hardening of the

arteries) and therefore increased risk

of heart disease (The heart has to

work harder to supply blood around

the body and may become enlarged

and eventually fail) and strokes.

Recent analysis of 16 randomized

studies on people with elevated blood

pressure found GSE to significantly

lower both systolic and diastolic blood

pressure but had no effect on people

with normal blood pressure. Animal

studies have shown GSE to improve

heart function, reduce damage caused

by heart attacks and prevent the

formation of foam cells that play a role

in the formation of arterial plaque.

A growing number of studies show

that GSE has powerful anticancer

properties in both the prevention and

treatment of many types of cancer.

Studies show arthritis of every type

may be greatly improved by GSE. GSE

also helps protect the body against

damage caused by diabetes while

helping balance blood sugar levels.

Another area GSE is proving highly

beneficial is the brain. It has been

shown to protect brain cells while

stimulating the formation of healthy

new brain cells. It may prove vital in

the treatment of brain disorders like

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

There are numerous studies on

GSE that show it can help support

our good health and prevent many

degenerative diseases. Further

detailed information is available

from the Natural Health Advisers at

Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy,

101 Seaview Road, New Brighton and

PH: 388-5757. They are always happy

to help!

Your Smile is your business card

A smile is one of the first facial features to

catch a person’s eye. How does your smile

stand up? What colour are your teeth? Are

they off colour, tarnished or yellowing? Many

people refrain from smiling because of teeth

discolouration.

Sparklewhite to the rescue. Their whitening

system is backed by satisfied customers,

testimonials, likes and statistics to prove their

simple, one to two time whitening program

accomplishes the goal.

Don’t be embarrassed by your teeth. Everyone

knows the purpose of teeth is to mechanically

break down food items by cutting and

crushing them in order to prepare them to

be swallowed. Your teeth are the first point of

entry for beverages as well.

Are you aware coffee and smoking tarnish and

yellow tooth enamel. However, the two biggest

culprits of yellowing teeth are none-other than

tea and red wine, berries & coloured veges. Go

figure.

Tea & Red Wine stains occur when tannins

in both of them build up in the tooth enamel.

Tannins are organic substances found in

plants. Tannins in tea and wine can lead to

stains on teeth. In fact, some black teas can

even cause more tooth discoloration than even

black coffee!

There is an answer. Teeth whitening, but not

just any teeth whitening system will work. The

kind at the supermarket or the ones which the

pharmacies stock, are not strong enough to

give the quick results consumers are looking

for as they have a restriction on the strength of

peroxide sold over the counter.

Going to the dentist is more expensive,

however, there is a Certified tooth whitening

ADVERTORIAL

specialist in Christchurch, Sparklewhite Teeth,

who offer Cosmetic Teeth Whitening. Anyone

age sixteen and up can have the procedure

done. They also do couples whitening.

Whether a couple or friends, you can have

your session at the same time, in different

rooms of course, and get a discounted rate for

two!

The best part of the success rate of this service

is it only takes one or two times depending

on the assessment. Simple. Then you can

smile with confidence and never have to be

embarrassed by your smile again. Vouchers

available.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

WESTERN NEWS

Elegant and stylish. Built for maximum

sun with panoramic views over Lyttelton

Harbour and surrounding hills across to

Quail Island.

Stroll up the driveway, past single garage

and carport up a few steps across a deck

onto the first level. Here you find three

double bedrooms. The master bedroom

has direct access to a lovely bathroom

containing a shower, king-size bath and

double his-and -hers sinks. A separate

toilet and laundry are also located on this

floor. Continue up the central stairway

onto the second level landing. Turn left to

the living, right to kitchen or diagonal to

access the rear of the property.

The private landscaped courtyard

provides all day living, ideal for that

morning cuppa to evening BBQs. Take

time to breath in the fragrant Jasmine

that adorns the trellis.

The light-filled open-plan kitchen/

dining area is the heart of the home. Here

stunning picture-perfect sea views from

the full-length dining room window

combine with high ceilings making for

that feeling of spaciousness.

Flow continues through to the living area

where a balcony off this room provides

additional living or entertaining space.

Stairs continue through the centre of the

house to a cleverly designed mezzanine

floor. Again, be spoilt with superb views

from the dining room windows. Having

its own shower and toilet makes this a

super fourth double bedroom, but if you

want space, light, and a “special spot” in

which to work from home, then this is just

the space. This is one of those properties

where careful planning, quality and

convenience for modern day living will

have you want to live here.

Lyttelton has become a sought-after

dynamic Port community with much to

offer from the Saturday market, cafes,

restaurants, to great entertainment. A

HOME & HEATING

Ground moisture barrier

under low sub-floor

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm

and healthy for their families throughout

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects

many of our older properties which suffer

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many

people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests have

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise

from the ground and enter a house every day,

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and

musty smells. Moulds can produce various

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and

very young are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising

damp and are there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,

flowable foam concrete under your timber

floored home.

While insulation is important, it has been

recognised that it is dampness that is the real

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes

Standards introduced by the government

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has

a requirement to install ground moisture

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight

moisture in the home.

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation

on the underside of a timber floor can occur

where the floor is suspended over damp

ground and the inside air temperature falls

close to the crawl space air temperature.

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier

under the suspended wooden floor of your

home, even when there is no crawl space.

• BRANZ Appraised; Appraisal Number 961

• Members of the Insulation Association of

New Zealand.

• We offer a free measure and quote in the

Canterbury region with no obligations.

• Assessments can be made in all other

regions by arrangement.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete

Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote

and complimentary appraisal of your

underfloor ground moisture barrier needs.

ATTACK RISING DAMP

What makes a great

heat transfer system?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected

components to optimise the system:

They use insulated duct to transfer the

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance

and number of rooms, without being noisy.

The diffusers send the heat to the floor, not to

skim the across the ceilings. All components

are good quality - designed to operate for

years without problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of

options: One to four rooms, with or without

thermostat and with a choice of grilles

and diffusers. HTUs improve energy

efficiency in your house, as you are

using excess heat. They have low power

consumption - only 80watts for the three

room system. Circulating air through

the house also reduces the risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU version

with downjet diffusers, which throw the

warm air downwards to the floor. These

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to

regulate which room receives the most

warm air.

An average size living room requires

2-4 kw of heating, yet appliances such as

log burners generate heat in the region

of 10 -20kw. This leaves an excess of 8

-16kw of heat which sits at high level

in the heated room, usually above door

level.

Heat transfer units work best where

very hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer

near the ceiling. So heat pumps, which

circulate warm air around the room with

no layering, are not suitable as a heat source

by themselves. However, if you have both

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer

systems with thermostat can work very well:

The heat pump stops operating once the heat

from the fire has heated the room, and the

heat transfer kicks in above this point, once

there is a layer of hot air at the ceiling.

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH

(0800 766 684) to ask how they can help

you with your Heat Transfer, as well as any

other ventilation requirements.
