Residents<br />

upset with<br />

decision to<br />

move social<br />

housing into<br />

quiet street<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

RESIDENTS SAY they have been<br />

failed in their bid to stop social<br />

housing going ahead on their<br />

quiet street.<br />

The Christchurch Methodist<br />

Mission’s plan to move 16 temporary<br />

units from Linwood Park a<br />

site in Guild St, Richmond, was<br />

granted by a city council hearings<br />

panel last week.<br />

Residents cannot appeal the<br />

decision because the mission’s<br />

resource consent application was<br />

non-notifiable, which means the<br />

public can’t make submissions<br />

on it.<br />

The units were used at<br />

Linwood Park for temporary<br />

housing after the 2011 earthquakes.<br />

Guild St resident Mike<br />

Williams felt the process failed<br />

his community especially for<br />

those who have spent thousands<br />

of dollars complying with the city<br />

council’s rules and regulations<br />

for the area.<br />

“Many in the community<br />

feel the same and have<br />

legitimate concerns about this<br />

proposal.<br />

for a<br />

good cause<br />

THE 46TH running of the Les<br />

Mills City2Surf will be held on<br />

Sunday and this year’s event<br />

looks set to be one of the biggest<br />

in recent times.<br />

Runners, joggers and walkers<br />

of all fitness levels will take on<br />

either the 14km or 6km options,<br />

both finishing at Ferrymead<br />

Playing Fields.<br />

Event organiser Jon Holmes<br />

says entries are up on last year’s<br />

event which attracted close to<br />

8000 participants.<br />

“It doesn’t matter if you<br />

haven’t trained. Either distance<br />

can be walked. It’s just about<br />

getting out on a Sunday morning,<br />

getting a breath of fresh<br />

air and doing something that<br />

gets the heart pumping,” said<br />

Holmes.<br />

The 14km event starts at 9am<br />

at Pioneer Stadium, and the<br />

6km event starts at 10am at<br />

Hansens Park, all culminating<br />

for a massive finish at Ferrymead<br />

where there will be<br />

plenty of entertainment and<br />

prizes on offer.<br />

Participants will also have free<br />

entry into Ferrymead Historic<br />

Park.<br />

“We’re going fizzy-free again<br />

this year. We’ve also changed<br />

from a free Powerade to a<br />

free Pump at the finish line.<br />

That’s another step in the right<br />

direction for health,” said<br />

Holmes.<br />

This year’s partner charity is<br />

the Prostate Cancer Foundation<br />

of New Zealand. If you wish to<br />

NO STOPPING RESTRICTIONS<br />

Plans for the proposed nostopping<br />

restrictions on Perth<br />

St, Richmond are now open for<br />

feedback. This follows requests<br />

from local residents to install<br />

restrictions on the narrow road<br />

as parked cars on both sides of<br />

the street have made it difficult<br />

for vehicles to pass by, with<br />

P5 parking restrictions often<br />

ignored. Consultation closes on<br />

SEWER RENEWALS<br />

Works have started this week on<br />

the renewal of sewers on Pascoe<br />

A Kidney Toxicity Survivor<br />

Over the next 2 months, I thought id write<br />

about two cases that required much input<br />

and care from our entire team of experts. We<br />

treat hundreds of sick patients weekly and<br />

many of them spend weeks in our hospital<br />

being nursed back to full health.<br />

We have so many<br />

special long term<br />

patients that we all<br />

connect with on<br />

different levels but I<br />

cant write them all up<br />

here. We don’t have<br />

favourites because<br />

we love and want to<br />

treat all the animals<br />

that walk through our<br />

doors. I chose these<br />

two patients as they<br />

highlight diseases we commonly see and<br />

treat here and they also show incredible<br />

owner commitment and positivity towards<br />

the whole process. It has to be a team<br />

approach and great communication is key.<br />

I know we have the right team of people,<br />

hospital setup and equipment to do our best<br />

job possible but clients need to be onboard<br />

for, at times, a long, complicated, emotional<br />

journey. You can absolutely guarantee<br />

though we will always do our BEST for your<br />

pet.<br />

TORIN is a young Birman who presented<br />

suddenly unwell 3 months ago - lethargic,<br />

losing weight, vomiting and just not himself.<br />

After a series of testing we deemed Torin<br />

was suffering from<br />

Acute Kidney Failure<br />

due to a suspected<br />

toxicity (possibly<br />

Lilies). His creatinine<br />

kidney enzyme level<br />

was through the roof<br />

, he was dehydrated<br />

and we suspected<br />

a bacterial UTI. He<br />

was immediately<br />

admitted for intensive<br />

care treatment with<br />

intravenous fluids<br />

and supportive care<br />

medications. He spent 2 weeks as a hospital<br />

inpatient receiving Intravenous fluids, food<br />

and medications were fed to him through<br />

a feeding tube in his neck and every day<br />

his devoted owners visited and spent time<br />

cuddling, grooming him and nursing him<br />

back to good health. Once home he was<br />

continually checked many times a week to<br />

make sure he wasn’t deteriorating. Torin<br />

was an incredibly tolerant and an easy to<br />

handle patient which was lucky as he was<br />

jabbed with needles constantly, had oral<br />

medications daily and had every test possible<br />

including radiographs and ultrasounds.<br />

In the end, Torin survived his kidney<br />

failure attack. When we was very unwell<br />

his creatinine reading was greater than<br />

1202umol/L - now<br />

it is normal at<br />

187umol/L. Many<br />

patients wouldn’t<br />

recover from this.<br />

He had incredibly<br />

special owners who<br />

completely trusted<br />

and listened to our<br />

recommendations<br />

and supported us<br />

in his recovery by<br />

visiting often, which was what Torin needed.<br />

Kim encouraged him to eat one bikkie at a<br />

time from her phone and he got to wander<br />

around a room not being caged all day.<br />

Our hospital nursing team was absolutely<br />

A1 fantastic at catering for all his needs,<br />

respecting him, treating him gently and<br />

spending lots of time giving him cuddles and<br />

grooms. We were honest with Torin’s owners<br />

about his prognosis and the time required<br />

for him to start showing improvement. In<br />

this case I believe the feeding tube was the<br />

game changer as we could deliver all his<br />

medications and nutritional requirements<br />

without going near his<br />

mouth and he could be<br />

successfully managed at<br />

home, with the people he<br />

loved and trusted.<br />

We all get super excited<br />

when we get to catch<br />

up with Torin. He’s like a<br />

member of the family and<br />

we all feel proud that we<br />

played a part in getting<br />

him home. Without fail he<br />

urinates in my room on<br />

arrival- not sure what this means exactly, but<br />

then I get cuddles so I’m taking that as a win.<br />

If anyone has more questions or needs<br />

advice regarding renal disease, please call<br />

have had an OPEN day for fabulous separate<br />

cat ICU space but if anyone wants to have<br />

Thousands raised for<br />

Mairehau bike track<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

A SCHOOL fair has exceeded<br />

organisers’ expectations after<br />

raising nearly $30,000 towards<br />

the construction of the Mairehau<br />

bike track.<br />

St Francis of Assisi Catholic<br />

School hosted the family fun extravaganza<br />

in early <strong>March</strong> to raise<br />

funds for the bike track that will<br />

be constructed on the school’s<br />

grounds.<br />

Fair organiser Heidi-Marie Parsonson<br />

said it was a good chance<br />

for the “fairly new” school to<br />

work together on a large project.<br />

“We were blown away by how<br />

many people from our local community<br />

joined us on the day. Our<br />

children learned the importance<br />

of serving and offering gifts to<br />

help our community,” she said.<br />

“We’re delighted because the<br />

aim of the fair was to have a family<br />

fun day and it was a chance to<br />

work together. We believe that we<br />

achieved in both of those areas.”<br />

Nearly $2000 worth of raffle<br />

prizes were up for grabs on the<br />

day. Families were treated to a<br />

variety of activities ranging from<br />

soft archery, vintage car rides and<br />

giant Twister, to international<br />

cuisine and live entertainment.<br />

The Mairehau bike track is a<br />

community project and will be<br />

open to all children in the area.<br />

Local children also had a hand<br />

in the track’s design with the<br />

help of Kamo Marsh Landscape<br />

Architects.<br />

Described as a valuable resource<br />

for Mairehau, the project<br />

has encountered many setbacks<br />

due to a lack of funding. But the<br />

community were still determined<br />

to put in the hard work and continue<br />

fundraising and preparing<br />

the area.<br />

Said Mrs Parsonson: “We look<br />

forward to sharing our bike track<br />

which will be built using the<br />

proceeds from the fair.<br />

“It will benefit our community<br />

GRATEFUL: The<br />

St Francis of Assisi<br />

Catholic School held<br />

a fair this month<br />

and raised nearly<br />

$30,000 towards the<br />

Mairehau bike track’s<br />

construction.<br />

providing a free, out-of-school<br />

time activity which has been designed<br />

to reflect the uniqueness<br />

of Canterbury’s landscapes.”<br />

The track’s design is a nod<br />

towards Christchurch’s iconic<br />

landscapes and is represented<br />

throughout different elements<br />

of the track such as a ‘Halswell<br />

Quarry’ ramp area for scooters<br />

and skateboards and a ‘Godley<br />

Head/Crater Rim’ cycle track.<br />

Pump track<br />

delayed<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

INSTALLATION of the new<br />

temporary pump track destined<br />

for Shirley Community Reserve<br />

has been delayed a second<br />

time amid challenges with<br />

international shipping.<br />

Originally, the Shirley Pump<br />

Track was to be installed by the<br />

end of January, but delays with<br />

the arrival of the pump track<br />

sections impacted the project’s<br />

timeline.<br />

The city council hopes to open<br />

the track by mid-April.<br />

Said city council head of parks<br />

Andrew Rutledge: “Challenges<br />

with shipping have been due to<br />

the track taking longer to get<br />

onto the ship, and also due to the<br />

longer port-clearing timeframes<br />

related to the coronavirus.”<br />

The 48-metre track is suitable<br />

for bikes, skateboards and<br />

scooters and is re-locatable. The<br />

track itself is temporary because<br />

it allows the area to be used for a<br />

number of years while options are<br />

kept open for future uses of the<br />

space.<br />

“We think this project will be<br />

a positive one that encourages<br />

people in the community to use<br />

an under-utilised area,” said Mr<br />

Rutledge.<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

Readers have their say on<br />

the recent articles on the<br />

360 Trail group’s proposal<br />

to build a pathway beside<br />

the Bromley oxidation<br />

ponds and the effect this<br />

may have on birds<br />

Spenser Holmes:<br />

I read with interest your<br />

article regarding the proposed<br />

pathway near the migratory<br />

birds in the estuary.<br />

It seems to me that the answer<br />

is blatantly clear – redirect the<br />

pathway away from the birds.<br />

The city council report puts<br />

the risk to the birds as low to<br />

moderate. Moderate sounds<br />

scary and low is even too darn<br />

high in a world where biodiversity<br />

is on the run and even the<br />

city council has declared for a<br />

climate emergency.<br />

The 360 trail people are thinking<br />

like dinosaurs, it is a new<br />

world out there and any nonessential<br />

disturbance of nature<br />

isn’t on. Having a pathway by the<br />

water isn’t essential, nice maybe<br />

but not essential. Maintaining<br />

the health and viability of the<br />

migratory birds is essential.<br />

As for the city council, my oh<br />

my, not a lick of common sense<br />

there. Didn’t the fact that the estuary<br />

is part of an internationally<br />

recognised flyway register the<br />

fact that extreme care was necessary<br />

when planning the route of<br />

the pathway, obviously not?<br />

Emma Lynch:<br />

I find it difficult to believe<br />

that the proposed 360 walkway<br />

will have a low to moderate<br />

ecological effect.<br />

Having witnessed the coastal<br />

pathway remove the tern’s roosting<br />

area, wading birds no longer<br />

feeding up to the estuary edge<br />

due to human disturbance and<br />

dogs now being exercised in the<br />

estuary bed, it is astonishing that<br />

the 360 interest group proposes<br />

that they are able to mitigate<br />

against any environmental effects<br />

of another walkway.<br />

Many of the birds in the<br />

estuary are already deemed at<br />

risk or declining. We need to be<br />

protecting this fragile estuary<br />

ecosystem, and maybe, in this<br />

case, leaving footprints is just<br />

too damaging.<br />

WHAT’S ‘HOT’ AT HOUSE OF TRAVEL SHIRLEY<br />

Welcome to <strong>2020</strong> and we sincerely hope that all of our valued clients had a wonderful summer whether it be a<br />

stay-cation in Aotearoa or a holiday abroad.<br />

As most of you will be aware, we are all in the thick of dealing with the unprecedented<br />

reaction to the Covid-19 virus. We wanted to take this opportunity to assure you all<br />

that at House of Travel we are committed to helping our clients in any way possible<br />

for them to continue on with their travels OR to assist in cancelling or deferring their<br />

travel to a later date.<br />

We understand the concerns and uncertainty this virus is causing some customers. As<br />

the news continues to change, we appreciate it may be difficult to decide whether to<br />

travel as well as where to and when.<br />

We are constantly monitoring the situation to assess possible impacts to our<br />

customers’ travel plans using reliable sources like the World Health Organisation<br />

(WHO) and our own Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. We’re also in close contact<br />

with our suppliers around the world and the welfare of our customers is front of mind<br />

for us as this situation evolves.<br />

If you are looking for credible, independent information about the risk and safety<br />

of travel during the coronavirus outbreak, we recommend that you visit these<br />

websites: WHO.int and SafeTravel.govt.nz, rather than relying on the news headlines<br />

and social media.<br />

On a positive note there are still many wonderful destinations you can visit that are<br />

closer to home or areas largely unaffected by outbreaks and we encourage you to<br />

consider some alternative options.<br />

As part of our Better Together promise, we’re always here to help. This world is an<br />

amazing place and we plan to keep exploring it for our customers.<br />

Our team are a well -travelled bunch and have a real passion for getting out to see<br />

more of our world. Here are some of the places that they have recently been to which<br />

may interest you.<br />

We look forward to welcoming you in store anytime to discuss your next holiday.<br />

Nicky visited Samoa with<br />

her family last year and it<br />

has now taken the place<br />

of her most favourite<br />

Pacific Island. Quiet and<br />

not affected by mass<br />

tourism this destination<br />

offers lush surroundings,<br />

beautiful beaches,<br />

friendly people and a number of things to<br />

see and do.<br />

Lisa took her family to<br />

Rarotonga last year and<br />

loved the ease of this<br />

destination. Only 40mins<br />

around the island, not<br />

too far to fly, stunning<br />

beaches and great for<br />

water sports. A great<br />

destination for<br />

multi-generational<br />

family holidays.<br />

Last year Julia visited the<br />

amazing country of Turkey.<br />

This is truly a fantastic<br />

destination that offers<br />

something for everyone.<br />

You can enjoy the bustling,<br />

beautiful city of Istanbul,<br />

around to the ancient<br />

ruins of Ephesus and then<br />

perhaps head into Cappadocia where you can<br />

spend time in a cave hotel and go ballooning<br />

above the amazing landscapes.<br />

A favourite destination of<br />

Claire’s is South Africa.<br />

She visited the Kruger<br />

National Park, Capetown<br />

and took the infamous<br />

Rovos Rail journey from<br />

Pretoria to Capetown.<br />

Her favourite place was<br />

spending time doing<br />

wildlife safaris in the Kruger and seeing the big<br />

5 in their natural habitat.<br />

gives you a taster of island life in Fiji.<br />

Last year Aimee visited the<br />

islands of Bali. She loved<br />

the vibrant atmosphere<br />

COVID-19<br />

Coronavirus<br />

How is Covid-19 spread?<br />

What is COVID-19?<br />

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a type<br />

of coronavirus. There are simple steps you can take to protect you and your family/whānau.<br />

How is it spread?<br />

COVID-19, like the flu, can be spread from person to person. When a person who<br />

has COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or talks, they may spread droplets containing the virus<br />

a short distance, which quickly settle on surrounding surfaces.<br />

You may get infected by the virus if you touch those surfaces or objects and then<br />

touch your mouth, nose or eyes.<br />

That’s why it’s really important to use good hygiene, regularly wash and thoroughly<br />

dry your hands, and use good cough etiquette.<br />

What can I do to stop COVID-19 spreading?<br />

•Cough or sneeze into your elbow or by covering your mouth and nose with tissues.<br />

•Put used tissues in the bin or a bag immediately.<br />

•Wash your hands with soap and water often (for at least 20 seconds).<br />

•Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.<br />

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

•Avoid personal contact, such as kissing, sharing cups or food with sick people.<br />

•Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects, such as doorknobs.<br />

•Stay home if you feel unwell and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453.<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or<br />

could it be mainly my muscles?<br />

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with<br />

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and<br />

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.<br />

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests<br />

that a major part of the pain could be due<br />

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.<br />

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason<br />

for the pain may be the muscles around<br />

the joint,” she explains. The images show<br />

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back<br />

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain<br />

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot<br />

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder<br />

blade can give a deep pain in the front of<br />

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way<br />

near the groin can give an ache in the knee<br />

(especially at night in bed).<br />

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year<br />

old client with severe arthritis who walked<br />

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in<br />

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight<br />

through my right leg due to pain in my hip<br />

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she<br />

was walking with her stick but without the<br />

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was<br />

one of the factors that made her muscles<br />

spasm but the other was that older people<br />

move less and the flexed position the hip<br />

is in when we sit is particularly bad for<br />

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that<br />

although the client was 89 and could have<br />

been “given up on” or told to live with the<br />

pain, she made a difference to her health<br />

and wellbeing.<br />

The same lack of movement can be the<br />

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder<br />

pain and the same few treatments could<br />

make a huge difference for you.<br />

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques<br />

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation<br />

techniques) are used to release the muscles.<br />

The client also gets a home exercise<br />

program designed to mobilize and stretch<br />

the joint, strengthen the important core<br />

muscles and increase general strength and<br />

balance. They teach a movement sequence<br />

SHOULDER<br />

PAIN<br />

KNEE PAIN<br />

that stretches the joint in all directions<br />

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their<br />

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.<br />

In many cases having the muscles<br />

released and being taught how to maintain<br />

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.<br />

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,<br />

HIP PAIN<br />

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)<br />

some maintenance therapy may be<br />

necessary, but that is often more affordable<br />

and, for older patients, better tolerated<br />

than surgery. After only one treatment<br />

you should know that it will work for you.<br />

Call them before the end of <strong>March</strong> and<br />

save $20.00 on that treatment.<br />

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

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

FOCUS ON HEALTH<br />

Grape seeds shown to have<br />

remarkable health benefits!<br />

According to researchers grape seeds<br />

may hold the potential to treat and<br />

prevent many devastating disorders.<br />

The seeds have been found to contain<br />

many powerful antioxidant such as<br />

resveratrol, catechins, epicatechins,<br />

proanthocyanadins and anthocyanins<br />

as well as other nutrients that have<br />

been shown to support the natural<br />

healing process and even slow the<br />

aging process.<br />

Grape Seed Extract (GSE) has<br />

been shown to reduce inflammation<br />

and pain, increase cellular energy,<br />

protect protein structures and<br />

increase collagen production. The<br />

powerful antioxidants in GSE can<br />

tone and strengthen the blood<br />

vessels, improve blood flow making<br />

it valuable for circulatory disorders<br />

of all kinds, including varicose veins,<br />

haemorrhoids, hardening of the<br />

arteries and impaired blood flow to<br />

the brain. It is excellent for most skin<br />

conditions because of the increase<br />

of blood flow to the skin tissue thru<br />

allowing more nutrients to the tissue<br />

cells and better waste removal from<br />

the cells. As well as this it supports<br />

collagen production. For these reasons<br />

many people report the skin looks<br />

more healthy, smoother and with<br />

better elasticity when using GSE.<br />

GSE offers a natural alternative<br />

for many people with hypertension<br />

(High Blood Pressure). Higher than<br />

normal blood pressure puts more<br />

stress on organs and can lead to<br />

atherosclerosis (hardening of the<br />

arteries) and therefore increased risk<br />

of heart disease (The heart has to<br />

work harder to supply blood around<br />

the body and may become enlarged<br />

and eventually fail) and strokes.<br />

Recent analysis of 16 randomized<br />

studies on people with elevated blood<br />

pressure found GSE to significantly<br />

lower both systolic and diastolic blood<br />

pressure but had no effect on people<br />

with normal blood pressure. Animal<br />

studies have shown GSE to improve<br />

heart function, reduce damage caused<br />

by heart attacks and prevent the<br />

formation of foam cells that play a role<br />

in the formation of arterial plaque.<br />

A growing number of studies show<br />

that GSE has powerful anticancer<br />

properties in both the prevention and<br />

treatment of many types of cancer.<br />

Studies show arthritis of every type<br />

may be greatly improved by GSE. GSE<br />

also helps protect the body against<br />

damage caused by diabetes while<br />

helping balance blood sugar levels.<br />

Another area GSE is proving highly<br />

beneficial is the brain. It has been<br />

shown to protect brain cells while<br />

stimulating the formation of healthy<br />

new brain cells. It may prove vital in<br />

the treatment of brain disorders like<br />

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.<br />

There are numerous studies on<br />

GSE that show it can help support<br />

our good health and prevent many<br />

degenerative diseases. Further<br />

detailed information is available<br />

from the Natural Health Advisers at<br />

Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy,<br />

101 Seaview Road, New Brighton and<br />

PH: 388-5757. They are always happy<br />

to help!<br />

Your Smile is your business card<br />

A smile is one of the first facial features to<br />

catch a person’s eye. How does your smile<br />

stand up? What colour are your teeth? Are<br />

they off colour, tarnished or yellowing? Many<br />

people refrain from smiling because of teeth<br />

discolouration.<br />

Sparklewhite to the rescue. Their whitening<br />

system is backed by satisfied customers,<br />

testimonials, likes and statistics to prove their<br />

simple, one to two time whitening program<br />

accomplishes the goal.<br />

Don’t be embarrassed by your teeth. Everyone<br />

knows the purpose of teeth is to mechanically<br />

break down food items by cutting and<br />

crushing them in order to prepare them to<br />

be swallowed. Your teeth are the first point of<br />

entry for beverages as well.<br />

Are you aware coffee and smoking tarnish and<br />

yellow tooth enamel. However, the two biggest<br />

culprits of yellowing teeth are none-other than<br />

tea and red wine, berries & coloured veges. Go<br />

figure.<br />

Tea & Red Wine stains occur when tannins<br />

in both of them build up in the tooth enamel.<br />

Tannins are organic substances found in<br />

plants. Tannins in tea and wine can lead to<br />

stains on teeth. In fact, some black teas can<br />

even cause more tooth discoloration than even<br />

black coffee!<br />

There is an answer. Teeth whitening, but not<br />

just any teeth whitening system will work. The<br />

kind at the supermarket or the ones which the<br />

pharmacies stock, are not strong enough to<br />

give the quick results consumers are looking<br />

for as they have a restriction on the strength of<br />

peroxide sold over the counter.<br />

Going to the dentist is more expensive,<br />

however, there is a Certified tooth whitening<br />

ADVERTORIAL<br />

specialist in Christchurch, Sparklewhite Teeth,<br />

who offer Cosmetic Teeth Whitening. Anyone<br />

age sixteen and up can have the procedure<br />

done. They also do couples whitening.<br />

Whether a couple or friends, you can have<br />

your session at the same time, in different<br />

rooms of course, and get a discounted rate for<br />

two!<br />

The best part of the success rate of this service<br />

is it only takes one or two times depending<br />

on the assessment. Simple. Then you can<br />

smile with confidence and never have to be<br />

embarrassed by your smile again. Vouchers<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Ground moisture barrier<br />

under low sub-floor<br />

Now with the colder and wetter weather on<br />

its way, home owners are focusing on ways<br />

to make their homes comfortable, warm<br />

and healthy for their families throughout<br />

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects<br />

many of our older properties which suffer<br />

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.<br />

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many<br />

people have relocated to homes that suffer<br />

from rising damp which can be associated<br />

with health problems. Independent tests have<br />

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise<br />

from the ground and enter a house every day,<br />

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and<br />

musty smells. Moulds can produce various<br />

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and<br />

very young are especially vulnerable.<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a<br />

locally owned and operated firm. The team<br />

understands the problems caused by rising<br />

damp and are there to help. They will come<br />

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,<br />

flowable foam concrete under your timber<br />

floored home.<br />

While insulation is important, it has been<br />

recognised that it is dampness that is the real<br />

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes<br />

Standards introduced by the government<br />

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has<br />

a requirement to install ground moisture<br />

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight<br />

moisture in the home.<br />

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a<br />

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under<br />

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed<br />

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over<br />

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation<br />

on the underside of a timber floor can occur<br />

where the floor is suspended over damp<br />

ground and the inside air temperature falls<br />

close to the crawl space air temperature.<br />

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture<br />

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding<br />

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can<br />

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.<br />

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most<br />

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier<br />

under the suspended wooden floor of your<br />

home, even when there is no crawl space.<br />

New Zealand.<br />

ATTACK RISING DAMP<br />

What makes a great<br />

heat transfer system?<br />

There are a number of Heat Transfer<br />

systems on the market. Smooth-Air<br />

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU<br />

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected<br />

components to optimise the system:<br />

They use insulated duct to transfer the<br />

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.<br />

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance<br />

and number of rooms, without being noisy.<br />

The diffusers send the heat to the floor, not to<br />

skim the across the ceilings. All components<br />

are good quality - designed to operate for<br />

years without problems.<br />

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of<br />

options: One to four rooms, with or without<br />

thermostat and with a choice of grilles<br />

and diffusers. HTUs improve energy<br />

efficiency in your house, as you are<br />

using excess heat. They have low power<br />

consumption - only 80watts for the three<br />

room system. Circulating air through<br />

the house also reduces the risk of damp.<br />

You can also choose the HTU version<br />

with downjet diffusers, which throw the<br />

warm air downwards to the floor. These<br />

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to<br />

regulate which room receives the most<br />

warm air.<br />

An average size living room requires<br />

2-4 kw of heating, yet appliances such as<br />

log burners generate heat in the region<br />

of 10 -20kw. This leaves an excess of 8<br />

-16kw of heat which sits at high level<br />

in the heated room, usually above door<br />

level.<br />

Heat transfer units work best where<br />

very hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer<br />

near the ceiling. So heat pumps, which<br />

circulate warm air around the room with<br />

no layering, are not suitable as a heat source<br />

by themselves. However, if you have both<br />

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer<br />

systems with thermostat can work very well:<br />

The heat pump stops operating once the heat<br />

from the fire has heated the room, and the<br />

heat transfer kicks in above this point, once<br />

there is a layer of hot air at the ceiling.<br />

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH<br />

(0800 766 684) to ask how they can help<br />

you with your Heat Transfer, as well as any<br />

other ventilation requirements.<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

Elegant and stylish. Built for maximum<br />

sun with panoramic views over Lyttelton<br />

Harbour and surrounding hills across to<br />

Quail Island.<br />

Stroll up the driveway, past single garage<br />

and carport up a few steps across a deck<br />

onto the first level. Here you find three<br />

double bedrooms. The master bedroom<br />

has direct access to a lovely bathroom<br />

containing a shower, king-size bath and<br />

double his-and -hers sinks. A separate<br />

toilet and laundry are also located on this<br />

floor. Continue up the central stairway<br />

onto the second level landing. Turn left to<br />

the living, right to kitchen or diagonal to<br />

access the rear of the property.<br />

The private landscaped courtyard<br />

provides all day living, ideal for that<br />

morning cuppa to evening BBQs. Take<br />

time to breath in the fragrant Jasmine<br />

that adorns the trellis.<br />

The light-filled open-plan kitchen/<br />

dining area is the heart of the home. Here<br />

stunning picture-perfect sea views from<br />

the full-length dining room window<br />

combine with high ceilings making for<br />

that feeling of spaciousness.<br />

Flow continues through to the living area<br />

where a balcony off this room provides<br />

additional living or entertaining space.<br />

Stairs continue through the centre of the<br />

house to a cleverly designed mezzanine<br />

floor. Again, be spoilt with superb views<br />

from the dining room windows. Having<br />

its own shower and toilet makes this a<br />

super fourth double bedroom, but if you<br />

want space, light, and a “special spot” in<br />

which to work from home, then this is just<br />

the space. This is one of those properties<br />

where careful planning, quality and<br />

convenience for modern day living will<br />

have you want to live here.<br />

Lyttelton has become a sought-after<br />

dynamic Port community with much to<br />

offer from the Saturday market, cafes,<br />

restaurants, to great entertainment. A<br />

town that can boast having a number of<br />

famous artists. Come join this thriving<br />

township.<br />

Viewing by appointment only.<br />
