Davids calls for well-being

focus in lockdown recovery

• By Louis Day

NEW community board

chairwoman Alexandra Davids

believes it is time to look at

doing things differently as the

country begins to adjust to a

new normal.

As community boards are

reinstated this week after ceasing

over the lockdown period and

alert level 3, Miss Davids who

is now heading the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board believes a real focus on

community well-being is needed

as the city looks to recover from

the Covid-19 crisis.

“I feel like we have got to a

point now where we have all

been in lockdown and we have

all started to work out what is

important to us and I think

community well-being

is something that will be at

the forefront of our decisionmaking.

“Hopefully, there will be a lot

more decision-making based

around that. We have to look

at how we do things differently

now,” she said.

Miss Davids assumed her new

role of chairwoman last month

after Sally Buck stepped down

from the position for health

reasons.

Square.

The store on Main Rd currently

employs 29 full-time and 19 parttime

staff, but that number will

decrease to 17 full-time and 12

part-time staff after it transitions

on June 15.

Before the Covid-19 lockdown,

trends showed customers’

shopping habits had changed and

it became unsustainable for the

Main Rd store to remain as a New

Residents had been using

the store to top-up the grocery

shopping they do at other

supermarkets.

All roles at the Four

Square store will be filled by

team members currently

employed at New World but all

of them, including managers,

will have to apply for the

vacancies.

Harbour fishing rules changed

NEW BYLAWS will limit

fishing within the Lyttelton

Harbour/Whakaraupō Mātaitai

reserve.

The bylaws,

approved by

Minister of

Fisheries Stuart

Nash, are the

result of a

Stuart Nash

proposal put

together by Te

Hapū o Ngāti

Wheke.

It was done with support from

local recreational fishers, science

advisers and Te Rūnanga o Ngāi

Tahu.

Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke

chairman Manaia Rehu says the

decision is crucial to safeguard

the local fisheries.

“These new rules will help

to rejuvenate mahinga kai and

ensure our mātaitai is protected

and enhanced not just for us

now, but for future generations

PROACTIVE: Bylaws approved by Minister of Fisheries Stuart

Nash will help rejuvenate the health of Lyttelton Harbour.

of Ngāi Tahu whānui and the

wider Lyttelton community.”

The bylaws are reinforced by

surveys conducted by Te Tiaki

Mahinga Kai, an Otago University

research and monitoring

support team for customary

protection area managers.

The surveys found only

about 10 per cent of pāua in

the reserve were at or above the

minimum legal size for recreational

fishing. It also found

other mahinga kai species were

present in low densities, and

habitat-forming kelps in the upper

harbour have been severely

depleted. Gathering site lead

guardian Henry Couch said the

proposal is a proactive step.

“This is about preventing any

further reduction in important

mahinga kai stocks and the

habitats they need to thrive.

Ultimately, we want to rebuild

these populations to the point

where they are once again

abundant.

“Current recreational bag

limits are too high and are

inconsistent with the underlying

philosophy of a mahinga

mātaitai, which is focused on

‘catching a feed’. These catch

limits mean the mātaitai will be

fished more sustainably.”

The new bag limits apply to

shellfish stocks in the reserve,

including pāua, pipi, mussels,

crabs, oysters, and cockles, as

well as several finfish species,

including flounder, blue cod,

red cod, butterfish, moki and

conger eel.

In addition to the new bag

limits, the taking of some species

including seaweed, skates,

and rays, from within the reserve

is prohibited as well as the

harvesting of cockles at Rec Bay

at Purau and at Walkers Beach

at Ōtamahua/Quail Island.

Mr Rehu believes the bylaws

will be an important measure

in rejuvenating the health of

Whakaraupō/Lyttelton.

“We want to see our species

replenished so that we and

future generations can have the

same health in our mahinga

kai and our reserves that were

enjoyed by our tūpuna.”

Community consultation

is also set to begin on revised

bylaws for the Rāpaki Mātaitai.

In Brief

CASS BAY STREAM WORK

Work is being carried out on the

stream channel at Cass Bay beach to

make it safer for the public to use.

City council contractors will remove

sharp edges, deteriorated concrete

shotcrete and associated rockwork

from today until June 20. The work

will also improve the durability

of the channel through new rock

replacement, improve fish passage,

naturalise the stream, enhance

ecology and improve planting.

Meanwhile, a 600m section of

water main on Port Hills Rd will

be replaced in the section between

Mauger Drive and Martindales Rd.

It is to upgrade the city council’s

existing water main network. Fulton

Hogan will be carrying out the work

until August 28. It will involve open

trenching along the carriageway

and footpaths. Visit https://ccc.govt.

Bursting Bubbles

It’s been a few days in Level 2 and what a relief to see some

sense of normality returning to our lives. Last Thursday

we saw doors opening, shutters going up, the sun shining

and people emerging from their bubbles with a feeling of

nervous anticipation (or was it joy and elation?!) Hopefully

in a few weeks we can look back, pinch ourselves and say

“what just happened?” In fact, if someone said to you on

January 1st this year the country was going to be shut

down for 7 weeks from March 25 you’d think they were

bonkers!

Over the lockdown our team was incredibly busy. Not

only was the Ray White leadership group providing hours

and hours of online training and information but we were

also fielding dozens of enquiries from buyers asking

about properties and how they could get through them.

There were sales made between $340,000 and just under

$1,000,000 and it was easy to see the pent up demand for

properties was going to result in a few bubbles bursting.

There is no doubt there

is a deep pool of qualified

buyers out there who are

ready, willing and able to

buy your property now.

Sadly for some people

in our community there

have been job losses and

redundancies. It’s a tough

situation as businesses

struggle to get through

a situation that has been

completely unanticipated.

If your future is feeling uncertain, come and see us about

a career in real estate. It may not have been something

you had ever considered but there is merit in being in an

industry where you can control your destiny.

Your skydiving

questions answered

Skydiving Kiwis

answers some of the

questions being asked

over plans to bring

a landing zone to

Sumner Beach

AS YOU may have seen in

the media or social media,

two Christchurch-based

adventure companies

have teamed up to create a

unique helicopter skydiving

adventure, envisaging

to land along Sumner

Beach.

Skydiving Kiwis and

Garden City Helicopters

have been working on

this project for the last

two years and we planned

to meet and greet with

Sumner community

board, residents and local

businesses to introduce

ourselves, to explain our

plans and answer your

questions as we progressed

the project.

Unfortunately, project

details leaked to the media

forced us to open up about

our plans before we had

time to reach out to the

Sumner community.

The directors of Skydiving

Kiwis, Lee Barraclough

and Sophie-Claire Violette,

are themselves Sumner

residents, and even though

our consent from ECan

did not require any formal

consultation, your views

are important to us.

We believe that bringing

this adventure back

to Otautahi will not only

kick-start a new vibe in our

community and boost our

local economy.

Our partnership with

Garden City Helicopters

means that we are able to

launch the first tandem

skydive experience in New

Zealand from a helicopter

with a landing on a beach.

We realise the community

has a lot of questions

and some were raised on

social media, so we will try

to answer them here:

• Skydivers will take off

from Garden City Helicopters

at Christchurch

Airport, fly across the city

to Sumner, before dropping

over the beach.

• Parachutes will land

in a 20m x 20m square set

up by the Skydiving Kiwis

ground crew on Sumner

Beach.

• This exclusion zone

will only be on the beach

for approximately 20min

per flight to guarantee the

safety of beachgoers and

skydivers.

• The landing area will

be packed away after parachutists

have landed.

• The numbers of staff

and jumpers will be small

in numbers so will have

minimal impact on parking

or traffic.

• Base jumpers have used

Sumner Beach for many

years, without causing any

major concerns without

using any of our safety precautions,

but our company

is recognised for its awardwinning

health and safety

procedures so we plan to

cover off any potential risk

factor.

• Once the last pieces of

the puzzle have fallen into

place, the Skydiving Kiwis

and Garden City Helicopters

teams will start training

and we will eventually

do some jumps onto the

beach. During this time,

we want to check in and

work with the Sumner

community regularly.

Council approves District Plan change

THE CITY council has

agreed to change the

District Plan to reflect

updated information about

the slope instability risk on

the Port Hills.

After the earthquakes,

properties identified as

affected by or at risk from

rockfall, cliff collapse or

mass movement were included

within slope instability

hazard areas – called

slope instability overlays

– in the District Plan.

In the slope instability

overlays, most development

requires resource consent.

However, hazard removal

works done over the past

few years, coupled with

new technical information,

means some properties are

now considered at less risk.

Last year, the city

council sought to amend

the overlays using a plan

change process under the

Resource Management Act.

That process culminated on

Thursday when the council

agreed to the changes.

Updating the overlays

will affect 84 properties,

83 of which have less

restrictive rules, offering

property owners certainty

and reduced costs when

developing their properties.

The council has

contacted affected property

owners throughout the

formal plan change

process.

There is now an appeal

period, before a council

decision to make the plan

change operative.

Giving the voiceless a voice

• From page 1

Miss Davids said she wanted to

instil an emphasis on engagement

with communities across the

board’s jurisdiction, with a focus

on giving the voiceless a voice at a

council level.

Her passion for helping others

was planted from an early age

when her mother would put her

to work at the Methodist Mission

Food Bank as opposed to putting

her into holiday programmes.

“I think it was really to avoid

paying for the holiday programmes

because they are really

expensive and she was on her

own with three children, but it

was actually a really great time

and learning experience.”

She has worked in a wide range

of jobs which she believes has

given her a well-rounded perspective

of her ward.

She worked in retail at Ballantynes,

in a hotel, an office for

a car transmission garage, where

she even got to rebuild a couple

of transmissions, and at a funeral

home.

This is now Miss Davids’

third term on the community

board after first being elected

in 2013, she began this term as

deputy chairwoman.

She described her introduction

to local body politics as a “baptism

of fire.”

In 2013, when she ran for the

then Hagley-Ferrymead Ward

for both council and community

board as a 27-year-old, her billboards

were continuously being

stolen and photos of herself viewable

on her Facebook page, which

media referred to as “glamour

shots,” attracted a lot of publicity.

However, Miss Davids did not

think it was fair to call the photos

“glamour shots.”

“When I saw the articles calling

them glamour shots, I thought

but I’m not a glamour model at

all, far from it, I pity the people

who had to look at my shots,” she

joked.

BUSY: Alongside

her new role as

chairwoman of

the community

board, Miss Davids

also serves in a

number of other

roles including

chairwoman

of Keep New

Zealand

Beautiful and

chairwoman of

Local Government

New Zealand’s

community

board executive

committee.

As stressful as this experience

was, Miss Davids felt it prepared

her well for what lied ahead in

her political career.

Aside from her new role,

she is also chairwoman for

Local Government New

Zealand’s community

board executive committee,

chairwoman of both Keep

Christchurch Beautiful and

Keep New Zealand Beautiful,

chairwoman of the Whitau

School board, a representative on

LGNZ’s young elected members

committee and a trustee of the

Graeme Dingle Foundation.

On top of this, she also

manages to find time to fulfil her

duties as a Resource Management

Act commissioner and role at the

Women’s Refuge.

Feedback on change ‘generally supportive’

• From page 1

A proposal to transition the

store to a Four Square was put to

staff in early March. The spokesperson

said feedback received

signalled they were “generally

supportive” of the change.

Foodstuffs South Island Ltd

general retail manager Tim Donaldson

said the decision “hasn’t

been made lightly.”

“Foodstuffs remains committed

to continuing to serve the

Redcliffs community, but when

a store in its current format

proves unsustainable, we need

to look for alternative options.

Considering the impact on staff

and the community are first and

foremost,” Mr Donaldson said.

“It’s a challenging time for the

team, they do a great job and

we’re doing all we can to support

them.”

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-

Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a

non-profit organisation formed in 2002 to

protect one of New Zealand’s most important

coastal wetlands. Each week she introduces a

new bird found in the estuary. Her column aims to

raise the understanding of the values and uniqueness of the

area.

Nervous grey teal

feeds at night

AT FIRST glance, they look like

a mallard duck, but the grey teal/

tētē is actually much smaller.

It has bright crimson eyes and

unlike the mallard, the male and

females have the same colouring.

The grey teal is yet another

self-introduced bird species

from Australia. In 1957, during

a severe drought, the teal was

looking for ‘wetter pastures’ and

flew across the Tasman Sea to

make New Zealand home.

It has thrived here, particularly

in Canterbury, which hosts the

largest number of grey teal in the

country at Lake Ellesmere. It prefers

shallow water bodies which

provide cover from overhanging

vegetation and our oxidation

ponds have proven to be an ideal

environment for the grey teal. As

many as 2000 of this species have

been counted in the ponds on a

regular basis, appearing to share

time between the ponds and

Lake Ellesmere.

When nesting, the females

incubate the eggs but the males

help guard the chicks which start

finding their own food soon after

hatching.

Unlike most birds, they are

nocturnal feeders preferring to

look for insects and plant seeds

throughout the night to shelter

and hide during the day.

This is probably the reason

why you do not often see a grey

teal. Luckily for these extremely

shy and nervous birds, the oxidation

ponds are also a “wildlife

refuge” and as long people and

their dogs stay well clear from

the ponds they will continue to

do well here.

How can we help protect the

grey teal and other birds making

the oxidation ponds their home?

Make sure that your load of

rubbish is well covered when you

drive to the Bromley Eco drop

station off Dyers Rd.

Litter scattered along the road

can blow into the ponds where it

can strangle and entangle birds.

HABITAT: The grey teal prefers shallow water bodies which

provide cover from overhanging vegetation.

MP Ruth

Dyson writes

about the

importance

of supporting

each other

during the

current times

THE LAST three months have

been really challenging and

unusual.

It does have a bit of a 2011 feel

about it though, with people

really looking after each other,

particularly those on their own

or those more vulnerable. You

really find out the true worth

of people during hard times.

And it’s in times like these that

I feel very proud to be a New

Zealander.

I know in our Redcliffs area

that our streets and Barnett

Park had a steady flow of walkers

and cyclists and family

bubbles enjoying the beautiful

autumn weather.

The innovation that is appearing

and being shared during our

lockdown time has been awesome.

But for many, these are

very sad times, particularly for

those who have lost jobs or can’t

POPULAR: Barnett Park has

had a steady flow of walkers

and cyclists.

An independent school

education is a precious

gift and it doesn’t have

to break the bank

see much future in their current

job. This is definitely going to

be a marathon challenge, not a

sprint.

I remember in 2011 and 2012

that the language of Cantabrians

was like a unique one that

only we could understand – talk

of red or green zones, TC1 or

TC2 or TC3, overcap payments,

jack and pack, under runners,

rubble foundations – these all

became part of our everyday

conversations with each other

while the rest of the country

would have been puzzled.

A similar thing is happening

now – with talk of social

distancing, staying within your

bubble, alert levels. It’s interesting

to see how quickly the new

language becomes part of everyday

conversation.

We have responded to this

unseen virus enemy in such a

strong and united way. Now

it’s time to continue that support

through our recovery and

rebuilding phases.

I really encourage you to

break that habit of online shopping

and shop locally instead.

These are the businesses within

your community which make

it tick. They need your custom.

And maybe for your family

birthday presents over the next

little while, buy a voucher for

use at one of your local businesses.

They will appreciate it.

And it will help us all make

it through the next stage of this

challenge.

Save rain water

The Redcliffs

Residents

Association

has launched

an ‘ecovillage’

initiative in

response to

our climate

and ecological emergency.

This month member Dave

Bryce focuses on water

FRESHWATER IS a vital but

scarce resource for all plants and

animals – it makes up only three

per cent of the planet’s water, and

only 0.6 per cent of that is useable

as most of it is locked up in ice.

On average, each person uses

150 to 300-litres a day, whereas

sustainable use would be more

like 70-litres.

Only 35 per cent of urban water

supply needs to be pure or drinkable

for kitchens and bathrooms,

as the other 65 per cent is used in

toilets, laundries and gardens.

Christchurch’s water supplies

come from underground aquifers

fed from the mountains and

plains. But Christchurch also has

annual rainfall, on average about

600mm, with a peak event likely

to be 100mm – and most ends up

in rivers and the sea.

Consumption of water by

people is very high and much of

that water is wasted. Water is increasingly

contaminated by rural

and urban activities and is costly

to purify. In a natural situation,

water is mainly captured and

used by the earth and animals;

and then recycled and purified

through evaporation into clouds.

The water landing on your

property as rain and snow is your

resource – use it sustainably by

capturing, storing, conserving

and using it. This will give you

security of supply and reduce the

amount of water you need from

the public supply.

Make sure to wash your

vehicles on a lawn rather than a

driveway, this is already required

by ECan to reduce contaminants

in stormwater – it is critical for

aquatic plants, invertebrates and

fish in streams.

Kids could make a drink

station for birds and lizards, you

can look up how to do this on

YouTube.

St Michael’s

Your school at the heart

At St Michael’s, we have been

nurturing the children of our city

for 169 years. Our small classes and

traditional education offer your child

outstanding specialist and individual

attention. With twenty pupils per

year – and twenty desks! – every child

has a sense of identity and place at St

Michael’s.

Extension programmes begin in

Year 5 in English and Mathematics,

challenging your child to achieve to

the best of their abilities. Specialist

Science in our dedicated lab is wide

ranging from the traditional to the

experimental. Lessons are wide

ranging too, as pupils frequently visit

our extended campus: the gardens,

library, museum…

St Michael’s is at the heart of the city,

and at the heart of St Michael’s are

the essential values of Christian faith

and good citizenship. Building on this

foundation, our wider curriculums

in History, Geography, languages, RE

and Art teach good citizenship in a

global context.

St Michael’s children are wellrounded,

participating in sport, music

and drama in and out of school.

New tech career in less than a year

Tech is big and getting bigger. The technology sector boomed

in 2019, cementing its position as one of our largest export

earners according to the latest annual TIN (Technology

Investment Network) Report. The number of people employed

by the technology sector increased by 7.9 per cent last year

to 51,569, and Canterbury’s tech revenue alone grew by 10.3

per cent. It has never been a better time to add tech to your

skill set and start your journey into NZ’s fastest growing sector.

The future is tech. Be part of it.

When it comes to the world of tech, the employment

opportunities are virtually limitless. SIGNAL’s SHIFT

programme was created to help you explore, experience

and embrace those opportunities, adding to your

qualifications and expanding your earning potential in this

vibrant, fast-paced sector.

SHIFT fast-tracks your tech learning with an industryfocused

one-year programme, that not only boosts your

skills, but gives you practical industry experience and an

industry network to help you move into tech.

Quick. Smart. Relevant.

SHIFT is an innovative industry-driven programme for

those who are seeking a new career path, who may or may

not have a tech background. Open to degree holders in

any discipline, SHIFT learners have come from diverse

backgrounds such as medicine, philosophy, sociology,

commerce, geography, marketing, engineering and

humanities.

And if you already have a tech related degree, you can

expand your expertise by focusing on a new area and

gaining valuable industry skills and connections.

A unique learning experience.

Using immersive studio-based learning and real-world

industry experience, SHIFT produces graduates with a

solid base of core tech skills, as well as the communication

and collaborative skills required in the tech industry.

SHIFT enables you to meet and work with local tech

employers. You will complete group projects with tech

mentors, and also gain experience via a 200-hour

placement within industry. This allows you to add value to

your host and to showcase your capabilities.

Opportunities.

Tech roles exist in nearly every area, from aviation to zoology,

and career possibilities are extensive. During SHIFT you

can focus on software design and development, business

analysis, data science, web design, project management,

user experience design, technical writing, service delivery,

and the list goes on.

Diversity is important in the tech sector. The best designed

products incorporate many viewpoints to meet customer

requirements. Tech firms are actively recruiting to increase

gender and ethnic diversity across their employees, and

can sometimes offer flexible hours and remote working

opportunities.

SHIFT starts July 2020 and limited partial

scholarships are also available.

To find out more about what tech career

opportunities exist and adding tech to your

current skills, join us online at one of our

Virtual Tech Careers Sessions. Register through

Gulliver’s Wife

by Lauren Chater

Birth. Death. Wonder … One woman’s journey to the

edge of love and loyalty from the bestselling author of

The Lace Weaver.

London, 1702. When her husband is lost at sea,

Mary Burton Gulliver, midwife and herbalist, is forced

to rebuild her life without him. But three years later

when Lemuel Gulliver is brought home, fevered and

communicating only in riddles, her ordered world is turned

upside down. In a climate of desperate poverty and violence, Mary is caught

in a crossfire of suspicion and fear driven by her husband’s outlandish claims,

and it is up to her to navigate a passage to safety for herself and her daughter,

and the vulnerable women in her care. When a fellow sailor, a dangerous

man with nothing to lose, appears to hold sway over her husband, Mary’s

world descends deeper into chaos, and she must set out on her own journey

to discover the truth of Gulliver’s travels . . . and the landscape of her own

heart.

Wolf Hall, Book #3

The Mirror And The Light

by twice winner of the Man Booker Prize Hilary Mantel

‘If you cannot speak truth at a beheading, when can you speak it?’.

England, May 1536. Anne Boleyn is dead, decapitated in the space of a

heartbeat by a hired French executioner. As her remains are bundled into

oblivion, Thomas Cromwell breakfasts with the victors. The blacksmith’s son

from Putney emerges from the spring’s bloodbath to continue his climb to

power and wealth, while his formidable master, Henry VIII, settles to shortlived

happiness with his third queen, Jane Seymour.

Cromwell is a man with only his wits to rely on; he has no great family

to back him, no private army. Despite rebellion at home, traitors plotting

abroad and the threat of invasion testing Henry’s regime to breaking point,

Cromwell’s robust imagination sees a new country in the mirror of the

future. But can a nation, or a person, shed the past like a skin? Do the dead

continually unbury themselves? What will you do, the Spanish ambassador

asks Cromwell, when the king turns on you, as sooner or later he turns on

everyone close to him?

With The Mirror and the Light, Hilary Mantel brings to a triumphant close the

trilogy she began with Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies.

VETTING IN COVID –

like we have never known it before……

McMASTER & HEAP

VETERINARy PRACTICE

Who would have ever imagined a microscopic virus,

called “Coronavirus” would have the entire world

in a spin and leave a long path of death and destruction.

I never imagined after 30 years of being a vet that I

wouldn’t be able to consult face to face and have clients

visit their sick pets in our ICU. The past 6 weeks have

provided new challenges for Steve and I running a large

busy practice with 29 staff but it has also allowed us to

see our people at their very best. Not surprising to us at all

and has just reiterated to us how special and proud we are

of our McMaster & Heap family.

The days leading up to the lockdown were some of the

craziest, busiest days ever recorded at McMaster & Heap.

Clients were panic buying – no not just toilet paper, but

rather pet food was walking off the shelf faster than we

could restock. Medication prescriptions were refilled,

clients were queuing up wanting to be seen and we

were solidly blocked with referral Ophthalmology and

Ultrasound cases as we didn’t know what level 4 would

look like and how we could operate.

Steve and I had some big decisions to make very quickly.

We needed to split our vets and nurses into 2 teams so if

one team went down with Covid-19, the other could take

over their workload. We needed to get the balance right

with experience, skill set and personality and fit in with

our staffs life outside of work. So far so good but it would

be fair to say we are missing our other half but not going

to miss the 12-13 hour shifts.

The surgical team of Steve, Michele,

Catherine, Kirsty and Crumb.

Our staff geared up in PPE

Last day working together for Team A

No routine work was seen but we have been extremely

busy since lockdown with sick and injured pets and

referral work. Due to the fact we are open 7 days and

have referral services such as Ophthalmology, Surgery,

Endoscopy, and Ultrasonography, we have been able to

help out many other Practices with their difficult medical

and surgical patients. It has been very rewarding working

with colleagues in other locations helping with the care

and treatment of their cases. Steve and I have performed

emergency “eye” surgery late at night most weeks since

lockdown. These cases have come in on the days our

team isn’t working so Steve and I sneak in about 8pm

once the other team have finished for the day. I have quite

enjoyed being my husbands “nurse” and have a greater

appreciation of what veterinary nurses have to juggle.

One night late, our entire team of 4 vets all arrived in to

operate on a working dog referred with a persistent high

fever that wouldn’t resolve with antibiotic treatment.

The referring vet did an awesome job at realising the

dog wasn’t coming right so called me up to ask if

we could scan the dog ASAP. Catherine diagnosed a

retroperitoneal abscess via Ultrasound which couldn’t be

seen from the outside. It was a surgery that couldn’t wait.

Crumb required 2 surgeons, an ultrasonographer and

an anaesthetist as it was not a straight forward surgery,

taking over 2 hours. A lot of fun was had though and we

achieved a successful outcome

for the dog. At the end of the

day that is all we really strive

for – to restore and save life.

We are supportive, respective

and grateful for one another’s

opinion on cases and we love

group collaborations. We are

extremely lucky that all our 9

Lola took

PPE seriously.

Me and my 8 week old Macy.

The McMaster & Heap Family are very pleased

to welcome “Macy”, our brand new 10 week

old black Labrador pup, a sister for our

precious Lola. you will see a lot of her on FB

and my articles, gallivanting around the vet

clinic as though she owns it already.

vets have separate special interest areas which means we

rarely need to seek any outside referral help. There isn’t

much we can’t do all in one building, something Steve and

I have strived to achieve in the past 20 years. We have a

truly fabulous, clever and dedicated team where nothing

is ever a problem.

So with the end in sight, I must say this has been a

unique working experience in which as a team we have

been pulled and stretched in many ways but have come

through it smiling, feeling we have done well and damn

tired. We are rapt to be ditching the full PPE kit our nurses

have to gear up in every day. We have met a lot of new

clients and there has been a boom of puppies and kittens,

which I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting and treating.

Now we are in level 2 we are allowing one client per

pet into the vet clinic, still obviously practising social

distancing. Really looking forward to sharing stories and

laughs again with our fabulous clients and doing the job

we love to do.

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

Chu, Phil Mauger, Aaron Keown

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

as to how a zero per cent rates

increase could be achieved this
