Bus fares to return

FARES WILL BE reinstated on public

transport services from Monday after

several weeks of free travel.

The New Zealand Transport Agency

provided free fares under level 4 and

3, but that was coming to an end now

the country had been shifting down

alert levels.

Environment Canterbury senior

manager public transport Stewart

Gibbon said although passengers

would be charged for travel on local

bus services from next week, Metrocards,

which were usually $10 were

being provided free this month to

encourage contactless payments.

“During our response to Covid-19,

we’ve all become used to the simplicity

of paying with contactless methods

whenever we can. We would like to

support our customers to continue

this when they use public transport,

and so we will be providing Metrocards

free of charge all month,” he

said.

Mr Gibbon says the Ministry of

Health has approved the use of cash

on public transport but Metrocards

provide access to cheaper fares.

“Your cash takes you further, as

fares are at least 25 per cent less with a

Metrocard. They also provide capped

daily and weekly fares, and the card’s

credit amount is secure if the card is

registered and subsequently stolen.”

COSTS: Bus fares will return next week after several weeks of free

travel.

Bridget’s dedication earns award

• By Bea Gooding

COMPLETING more than 250

hours of community service was

expected to take about five years,

but Bridget Maw of Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School achieved just that

in a matter of weeks.

Because of her dedication, the

year 12 student recently received

a silver Student Volunteer Army

award once she reached the

milestone.

“I was super excited, and it was

such a great feeling knowing I

was using my time to help other

people in some way,” she said.

The Covid-19 pandemic originally

put her volunteering efforts

to a halt.

Prior to the lockdown, she had

done about 20 hours of service;

face painting at the children’s

day event in New Brighton and

watering native trees

at Drayton Park, Mt Pleasant.

She did not let the limitations

of lockdown get her down and

instead used the time to gather

materials around the house to

knit a blanket which was later

donated to the Red Cross.

“The idea came about when

someone from the boarding

house at school suggested

knitting squares to be stitched

together later as a blanket.

“But after I knitted the first few

squares, I decided to keep going

and ended up making a whole

blanket myself.

“I was knitting 10 hours a day

over three weeks and towards

the end of lockdown I was doing

about 11 hours.”

When Bridget was not volunteering,

she focused her energy

on academics as she was undertaking

triple science at school.

Beyond high school, she

wanted to study vet science,

engineering or health sciences

and planned to continue her

charitable efforts moving

forward.

Nurse Maude was an organisation

and she hoped to support them

more in the future.

“When I was nine-years-old,

my dad died of cancer and he

received hospice care there and

they gave my family so much

support,” Bridget said.

It was because of this that

sparked her passion for volunteering

at various organisations,

knowing the impact it can have

when someone took the time out

of their day to help.

She encouraged young people,

now more than ever, to get

involved with a cause or charity

they were willing to back.

Said Bridget: “It’s such a good

feeling to see the impact you’re

having on the community,

whether it’s creating something

or volunteering your time.

“You never know when

you’re the one who will need

help, especially now during the

Covid-19 pandemic.”

helping, and the growth over the

past year has been amazing.”

She said Papanui Rotary

was out in force, and students

from Papanui High School also

helped out.

“We know that by

nurturing our environment

through targeted tree planting

that we can improve the overall

well-being of our community

and help mitigate climate

change.”

“It was very surprising – I’m

really amazed and proud. I

haven’t had time to absorb it”

Mrs Bisset has been a member

of the Rotary Club of Christchurch

since 1993 becoming the president

in 2009.

Over the course of 21 years,

she helped raise close to $1.3

million for children’s charities in

Canterbury as part of the Rotary

organising committee it.

THe funding went to

supporting families in a range

of charities such as the Life

Education Trust and the Halberg

Disability Sport Foundation.

“We felt there was a need

to specifically help children

so a number of us formed

a committee to assist these

charities, with funding going

towards things like projects and

fundraisers,” she said.

“I’m delighted to be involved

with Rotary, doing something

outside my work environment,

meeting people from different

walks of life and sometimes going

abroad.”

Mrs Bisset was born in

Christchurch and is the oldest

of five children. She has four

children and nine grandchildren.

She was a registered nurse and

was currently a board member

of the Burwood Academy of

Independent Living, a researchbased

organisation that helped

people with spinal cord injuries.

‘It’s a

wonderful

feeling to

be able to

give back.’

– Robyn

Bisset

“Having worked at Burwood

Hospital many years ago, it

resonated with me to be a board

member so it has been very

rewarding.”

Her charitable efforts did not

stop there; going on to become

the Canterbury Club’s first female

president since it was established

145 years ago.

“THe club is for professional

and business people. It’s a lively

environment, a great place to

have meetings and to get working

opportunities,” said Mrs Bisset.

“It was a men-only

environment for a long time, but

now 20 per cent of members are

women which feels fantastic.”

SENIOR LIVING

Centuries old folk remedy

supports good health!

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an array

of powerful health benefits. It is none other

than the popular apple cider vinegar or ACV.

Since the time of Hippocrates – the “Father of

Medicine” – ACV has been renowned for its

curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS and FOLK

MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis reports how he

found that Vermonters who regularly consumed

ACV and Honey had excellent health with many

putting in a vigorous day’s work on the farm

even when well into their eighties. He also noted

the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients reporting almost

total relief after taking a course of the mixture.

Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and potassium

in cider vinegar counteracted calcium deposits

and helped the body control calcium use. He

also noted that Vermonters who consumed ACV

and H around meal time had excellent blood

pressure and circulation. The reason he found

was that protein foods thickened the blood

and vinegar thinned it. As the blood thickens

it cannot pass as easily and quickly through the

blood vessels and capillaries. This poor blood

flow would reduce cellular health by limiting

nutrients to the cells as well as waste elimination

from the cells. To prevent cell damage the body

naturally increases blood pressure but this puts

more stress on the blood vessels, organs and

heart. Having ACV and H with meals will help

prevent protein raising the blood pressure. It

also contributes to a feeling of greater well-being

because the thinner blood circulates quickly and

more easily through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis

found regular consumption of CV and H to be

an excellent health tonic with numerous health

attributes.

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all the

goodness of the apple in a form that is readily

accepted by the body. Good health starts with

good digestion and assimilation of nutrients.

ACV taken before food will stimulate and

promote healthy digestion and assimilation

of vital nutrients for good health. A wellfunctioning

digestive system helps prevent

disease by neutralising any toxic substances that

enter the body.

It is important to note not all ACV is produced

in the traditional way and results are likely to

prove disappointing with these other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV and ACV with 20%

Manuka Honey is produced in Canterbury from

organic whole apples in the traditional way. It is

double strength so you can use less.

Further information is available instore from

the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

NOR’WEST NEWS

Customers pleased with honest,

reliable vehicle servicing

Having your vehicle regularly serviced is

key to getting the best out of it in terms of

fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear

on expensive parts.

Kevin, who owns and operates Parker

Automotive in Birmingham Drive,

provides full vehicle servicing to keep your

vehicle running smoothly, as well as WOFs,

batteries and tyres.

He also carries out all mechanical repairs,

including cam belt replacement, suspension

work, clutch and gearbox repairs, only

repairing what’s necessary, and without

charging the earth.

He has owned the business since 2007,

and over that time has established a loyal

customer base – people that rely on him

to give them sound advice and provide

professional care and servicing for their

vehicles.

Customers come from across the city,

Spreydon, Hillmorton, Riccarton, Halswell

and Middleton areas, and the business has

received many positive Google reviews

from customers. Below are some examples:

I have been going to Parker Automotive

for the last eight years and I cannot fault the

service. The mechanical work has been top

notch! If you want top service and value for

money I recommend Parker Automotive. –

Daniel Jay

I’ve had all sorts of work done here from

basic servicing and warrants through to

major work like clutches, replacement

coilovers and bushings. Kevin is a very

honest guy who gets the job done in a very

timely manor and he has outstanding

communication. The overall service I’ve

received is excellent. – Lachlan Poole

I know it’s not always about price but

sometimes, when it comes to vehicle repairs,

you just want a perceived good deal and work

carried out by someone who seems to care.

Kevin came recommended by a friend, and

what a great recommendation. His work was

clean, efficient, fast and came in under what

I thought it was going to cost. So we took my

partner’s car there two days later and that

too was completed faster than we expected

and at an almost unbelievable cost.

Give Parker Automotive a shot next

time you need something done. Kevin

is a nice fella too, win win. – Mark

Lewis

Earlier this year, Parker Automotive

moved from premises on the Lincoln

and Torrens roads corner to a new site

at 23B Birmingham Drive, Middleton.

Opening hours are Monday to

Friday 7.30am-4pm, Saturday 8am-

12pm. So give Kevin a call on 982

4268, or pop in and he will be happy

to help with all your vehicle servicing

needs.

Property Market Changes Likely to Be Regional

New Zealand is divided into 16

different regions, Auckland has

a population of 1,570,100 and

Greymouth 9,700. We have towns

and cities from Darfield to Dargaville

to Dipton to Dobson to Doyleston to

Drury, Dunedin and Duntroon.

Our point?

When you are reading current and

upcoming media coverage about

“the property market” please keep

in mind these are usually sweeping

generalisations and largely weighted

towards what is happening mainly in

Auckland’s market....sometimes it can

be forgotten there is the “rest of New

Zealand’’ hanging off our main city.

What is happening here in the

Christchurch and Canterbury property

markets may be extremely different to

other parts of New Zealand so our best

advice is to:

1. Avoid the front page nationwide

property market coverage

2. Seek out local statistics and

updates

3. Speak with a local agent about

buyer enquiry levels and general

market activity

4. Consult a local mortgage broker

or your lender about what activity

they are seeing in their field.

The number of mortgage preapprovals

sitting on their books

is often a good indicator on how

many buyers are in the current

market especially if they can

tell if it is more or less than

they would typically see at that

time of year or at the same time

last year.

A combination of the above research

should give you a good overall

picture on what is happening in the

area relevant to you. Again, what is

happening in Auckland might not be

the same case in Aranga, Arapohue,

Arrowtown or Arundel!

If you would like to discuss your local

market further please don’t hesitate to

get in touch with us.

It’s that time of the year again and many of us have started working on our

taxes for the last financial year. I often find that many landlords are not aware of

the claims that can be made on property management fees and other expenses

associated with owning an investment property. To maximise the full potential

of your investment it is important to properly understand what can be claimed.

Here is a breakdown of some of the key costs you could claim back:

• Insurance & rates: You can claim back the full cost of insuring your rental

property and the council rates associated with the ownership of the

property.

• Interest: You can claim the interest charged on money you’ve borrowed

to buy your rental property. However you can only claim the interest that

relates directly to the rental property.

• Fees: You can claim 100% of the fees paid to property managers who

collect the rent, maintain your rental, or find tenants for you. You can

claim the fees charged by an accountant for: Your accounts to be managed,

tax returns to be prepared, advice. However, you can’t claim for any costs

involved in the initial set-up of your rental property. Where your total legal

fees for any given year are $10,000 or less, you can claim a deduction for

the legal expenses involved with buying a rental property. If you’re in the

business of providing residential rental accommodation, you may also claim

legal fees incurred when selling a rental property from your portfolio.

• Repairs & maintenance

You can claim back the costs for any repairs to the property or general

maintenance. However, if you’re doing the work yourself you can only

claim for materials, not your own time. If the work is an improvement to the

property rather than a repair, then you can’t claim that cost as an expense.

The distinction between repairs and improvements can be tricky. If you’re

unsure whether work done on your property is repairs or maintenance it’s

advisable to speak to a chartered accountant.

• Depreciation

Depreciation is an allowance you can claim to cover the costs of wear

and tear and general ageing of furniture and fittings you’ve bought for

your rental property. You can combine assets worth less than $5,000,

rather than depreciating them separately. You can no longer claim

depreciation on the property’s land or buildings. This can be a complex

area and for more information we suggest you speak with a chartered

accountant.

Other costs you may be able to claim include body corporate fees, valuation

fees, gifts for tenants and travel associated with managing your property. If

you have any questions about the above please get in touch with our team and

your accountant and make sure you are maximising the full potential of your

investment!
