Celebrating

20 years of

service to the

community

• By Bea Gooding

BRENT CHRISTENSEN

originally visited the Delta

Community Support Trust for a

hot meal.

That first encounter has now

transpired into 20 years of service

and dedication towards the

trust’s food bank and community

events.

This month marked the special

milestone for the Linwood

resident who has volunteered for

four days a week at the organisation

more than two decades.

“It feels amazing and overwhelming.

It’s so lovely to have a

place to come and feel loved and

wanted,” said Mr Christensen.

“It gets me out of bed every

morning.”

It all started when he was seeking

a sense of community and

had come across the meal organised

by the North Avon Baptist

Church – from then on he had

found his purpose.

“I thought I might give them a

hand with dishes as well, then it

just got bigger from there,” he said.

“It feels really good to be a part

of the family, I love helping and

being with people and I’ve made

so many friends over the years.”

Mr Christensen holds many

roles at the trust, such as organising

DVD nights with the Friendship

Link – a companion group

for people with disabilities and is

the official DJ at discos held at St

Albans Baptist Church.

The volunteer said much had

changed over the years, especially

since the earthquakes and now

the recovery from Covid-19 and

having more demand for food

parcels.

Now that the country was in

recovery mode, he urged others

to get involved in their communities

and give back, no matter

how small.

“It’s so rewarding, and being

with people and helping them

really makes their day.”

Helping the homeless

• By Bea Gooding

TWELVE-YEAR-OLD

Javahna Page is determined

to keep Christchurch’s

homeless community

warm this winter.

The young volunteer

has started her very own

charity, Winter Warming

Hearts by Javahna, this

month after seeing the

reality of homelessness in

the city – something she

did not see after previously

living in Timaru.

Her goal was to put

together backpacks filled

with winter essentials such

as blankets, gloves, beanies,

scarves and flasks filled

with homemade vegetable

soup.

“I felt really bad because

I’ve got everything I need

and I lived in a nice, warm

house but homeless people

don’t have that much stuff,”

said Javahna.

“And Jacinda (Ardern)

said we needed more kindness

in New Zealand, so I wanted to

help out.”

She originally had plans to save

up for a PlayStation, but realised

there were bigger issues at hand and

decided to support the homeless in

any way she could.

WARM HEARTED: Javahna Page, 12, has started

a charity dedicated towards keeping homeless

people in Christchurch warm during the winter. ​

It initially started off with organising

10 backpacks, also equipped

with supermarket vouchers, but she

decided to continue her efforts and

established the initiative.

She was also keen to organise summer

packs in the future, donating to

homeless shelters in the city once she

had everything needed.

Said Javahna’s mother, Michelle

Page: “I think it’s more

important now more than

ever due to this lockdown,

we’re going to see the cost of

living rise for a while which

could make more people

homeless or unable to afford

certain things.

“I feel like the proudest

mother on the planet that

my daughter would think of

doings this let alone start the

motion.

“If we could all have a bit

more kindness rather than

judgement, our country could

heal a little faster.”

Javahna largely relied on

public donations and said

she would be grateful for any

items small enough to fit in a bag,

and fresh vegetables for the soups.

how to donate to Javahna’s

charity, visit: www.facebook.

Cashmere coach wins

top international award

• By Bea Gooding

Sue Williams

A CASHMERE High School

teacher’s passion for coaching

the next generation of problem

solvers has been internationally

recognised this month.

Future Problem Solving Coach

Sue Williams was awarded

the Keith Frampton Memorial

Award for being this year’s International

Coach of the Year.

The subject studied topics

which were important to humanity

and were usually set in the

next 25 years – anything between

the importance of coral reefs,

the use of drones to the justice

system in the future.

The nominations and award

took the Merivale teacher by

surprise.

“It was a complete surprise

and it blew me away, but it’s an

honour,” she said.

Mrs Williams has taught at the

school for nine years and said

challenging students to think

deeper and broadening their

curiosity was a rewarding part of

the job.

“I like how it retains curiosity

in kids, they can look broadly at

big topics in a range of perspectives,”

she said.

“And you’re not telling them

what to think, you’re teaching

them how to think.”

Mrs Williams has been a coach

and mentor across six schools in

the city and is currently on the

National Administration Board

for Future Problem Solving NZ.

She originally wanted to be a

scientist, but being a teacher allowed

her to mix knowledge and

her love of people in a role she

enjoyed.

Her current group of problem

solvers were meant to compete

in Massachusetts, United States

at the FPS International World

Finals, but it was held virtually

due to Covid-19.

One topic was about how to

make an uninhabitable place –

like in space – into a sustainable

environment for the human

population.

The programme also taught

students important writing and

scenario performance skills

which turned ideas into organised

solutions; identify underlying

problems in communities

today.

It was because of this that she

believed young people should get

involved and challenge themselves.

“They are the next generation

of this planet and it enables them

to engage with the future in a

productive way.”

Rotary helps create

community space

ROTARY CLUBS across the city

have joined forces to develop a

dedicated garden and market

space in Cashmere.

The overgrown pocket of land

will be developed on the grounds

of disability service provider

Hohepa Canterbury and was

made possible by the Rotary Clubs

of Riccarton, Hornby, Papanui,

Cashmere and Christchurch

Sunrise.

The area became overrun

and unusable following the

earthquakes, therefore Hohepa

Canterbury decided to construct

a pathway and reflection garden -

but was struggling with funding.

Said the Rotary Club of Riccarton

president Greg Cayford:

“We will be sharing with, and

working alongside residents, day

community members, parents and

staff who may choose to engage

with the project.

“This project is highlighting that

there are many connections already

established between Rotary

clubs, individual members and

with Hohepa Canterbury.”

Hohepa Canterbury provides

support to 130 special needs

children and adults with an

intellectual disability to live fully

engaged lives.

They offer diverse living

options, learning and activity

programs, community participation,

and therapies inspired by

anthroposophy - a holistic philosophy

encompassing the planet,

the people and spiritual essence.

One of anthroposophy’s key

teachings is that physical wellbeing

is enhanced by creating

physical environments for work

and living that provide a positive

experience.

Aside from providing the

campus with a “welcoming, visually

appealing streetscape,” the

stream boundary was integral

to the well-being of the Hohepa

community.

The area’s mature trees will

be enhanced by green space and

plantings, providing a natural

area for reflection.

The gathering space will host activities

such as market stalls selling

Hohepa farm goods and seasonal

activities such as carol singing.

“As meetings have been held

between Rotary representatives

and the Hohepa team, it has

become clear that there are

further enhancements we can

develop together as the project

progresses and nears completion,”

said Mr Cayford.

Charity in

need of

donations

• By Bea Gooding

THE BLANKET Bank is in need

of donations following increased

demand due to Covid-19.

The charity has set up a givealittle

page to make up the shortfall

of warm bedding they provided to

vulnerable families across the city.

Due to the pandemic, usual

donations of used bedding was

“much more difficult” to process

therefore monetary donations

were much preferred.

Charity co-ordinator Martha

Baxendell said compared to this

time last year, demand was higher

than normal, reflecting job security

in families.

“We started the givealittle

because we’ve had fewer donations

over the lockdown that we couldn’t

accept and it (donations) was

incredibly low at this time of year,”

she said.

Donations had already been

made, meaning the charity only

had to turn away one person,

instead of many.

The funds will be used to purchase

new blankets, duvet, sheets

and other warm items.

Donations can be made to The

Blanket Bank at: https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/blanket-bank

Author draws on own bullying experience

THE THIRD and final book in a

series about bullying by Lyttelton

cartoonist and writer, Alex

Hallatt, is set to hit bookshops

later this month.

Hallatt’s inspiration for the

books came from her time at

primary school in England.

“When I was bullied at school,

it was one of the most miserable

periods of my life. I wrote the

books I would have liked to have

read back then. They are stories

that give hope and tools for

standing up to bullying,” Hallatt

said.

But bullying is still a problem

in New Zealand schools. A 2019

Education Review Office study

reported that 47 per cent of

primary students had been bullied,

while 61 per cent of primary

students had witnessed bullying

of others.

Hallatt’s newest book, FAB

Club 3 - The Big Match, follows

on from Friends Against Bullying

(FAB) Club and FAB Club 2 -

Friends Against Cyberbullying.

The first book’s theme was

general bullying at school and

the second book’s theme was

online and phone bullying.

For the third book, it was time

for Hallatt to turn her attention

to sport.

“Playing sport can be fun, but

not if you never get picked for

the team. And what if the team

Veterinary practice

A few SPECIALISED services

you may not know about…

1. CHEMOTHERAPY

The past 12 months has seen our Practice treat many

cancer patients with Chemotherapy. We have an

experienced, dedicated team of vets and nurses who

really connect with these patients and their owners.

We see referrals from other Practices and we can

offer sound advice, deliverance of care and ongoing

support for these patients. We often seek the advice

from specialists when formulating the appropriate

plans and drugs to be used.

surgical workload and have purchased the necessary

specialised equipment so that spinal, orthopaedic,

soft tissue, and thoracic surgery can proceed without

a hitch. We also can organise patients to have CT/

MRI scans, prior to surgery, through Pacific Radiology

if necessary. Spinal ( CSF) taps are also carried out if

deemed necessary for spinal/intracranial patients.

Your vet needs to refer your pet to Helen for her expert

opinion and surgical expertise.

3. ENDOSCOPY

This is a great, non invasive service which allows

us vets to have a good look down airways into the

lungs (can even go up nostrils) and down or up the

gastrointestinal tract. We have just purchased a smaller

scope to visualise the urinary system in dogs and can

get into smaller airways.

Traffic congestion on the Colombo St railway bridge at the intersection with

Moorhouse Ave, Sydenham in 1961.

Kirsty and Mauger sharing the love, after

Mauger was in for chemotherapy to treat

his Mast Cell Tumour.

Chemotherapy in pets is not as aggressive as in

humans, therefore the side effects are less. We aim for

“Quality of Life” versus squeezing every minute out

of living. We do aim for “complete clinical remission”

though. Most tumours are removed initially or

debulked and then chemo is used to reduce the risk of

spread of cancer to other sites. We do not have access

to radiation therapy in Christchurch.

Side effects ( nausea, vomiting, lethargy, fever,

diarrhoea, anorexia) can occur, but are not as severe

as in humans as doses given are lower. We manage

these with medications or reducing the next chemo

drug dosage.

Pets can still enjoy their normal foods and exercise

whilst on chemotherapy. There are a few exceptions

though. If your pet’s White Blood cell count gets

too low, then avoid high density dog areas so

disease transmission is low. Raw food diets are not

advised during chemotherapy due to an increased

risk of infection if the pet’s immune system comes

compromised. It is thought a premium diet, higher in

protein and fat/lower in carbohydrate are preferred

and fish oil has been talked about.

Pets DON’T lose hair like humans. After surgical clipping,

hair regrowth can be slow but it will grow back.

There is no risk to the owner of a pet receiving

chemotherapy, although pregnant women should not

handle any chemotherapy medications that are to be

given at home.

Our Vet Kirsty does the lion share of Chemotherapy in

the Practice. She has a dedicated, experienced nursing

team and these patients are all typically scheduled

on one day. Blood work is initially done to check they

are fit and healthy for their chemo drugs, then they

are injected slowly via an IV line or given orally. No

sedation drugs are usually required. It is quick, easy

and painless for your pet. Kirsty is really passionate

about helping your pet seek cancer remission whilst

enjoying a full, great quality of life. She is with you

every step of the way, answering your questions,

especially when big decisions need to be made.

2. SURGICAL REFERRALS

We are now able to offer a surgical referral service

thanks to Dr Helen Milner (a registered specialist in

Small Animal Surgery)

coming on board

recently. Helen sees

referral patients from

all over the South

Island where they are

typically booked for a

1 hours consultation,

with surgery then

scheduled if required.

4. RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

Funding boost sought for

community organisations

A FINANCIAL boost to help

community organisations

cope with the challenges of the

Covid-19 crisis is proposed in the

city council’s draft Annual Plan.

The one-off $360,000 boost to

the Strengthening Communities

Fund would be available to

community groups working to

promote well-being across the

sporting, arts, social, health and

environmental sectors.

The five per cent increase

has been suggested as a way to

acknowledge the difficulties that

community-focused organisations

could face following the recent

Covid-19 level 4 lockdown,

says city council head of community

support and governance

John Filsell.

“The purpose of the Strengthening

Communities Fund is to

support organisations that help

make Christchurch a more caring

and enjoyable place to live.

Last year, for example, the fund

received 951 applications from

community organisations, and

763 received a grant.

“We recognise the importance

of their role and the challenges

they are likely to face in the

coming months, and that’s why

we’re proposing some extra

funding to help ensure they’re

equipped to deal with those

demands.”

SUPPORT: The city council

has proposed a $360,000

boost to the Strengthening

Communities Fund.

Many of the traditional

sources of funding for community

groups, such as Gaming

Trust grants, have been affected

by Covid-19.

If the one-off $360,000 boost

goes ahead it would have a 0.07

per cent impact on rates.

Public consultation on the

draft Annual Plan opens on Friday

and continues until June 29.

The Strengthening Communities

Fund, which was set up in

2008, is a $7.2 million fund

distributed by community

boards and the city council

each year.

THE BLACK swan, large and

majestic, moves slowly whilst

floating on the ponds and

bright orange/red bill, which is

detailed with a white band.

The male can weigh as much as

7kg and while the females look the

same, they are smaller and reach a

maximum of 6kg in weight.

The black swan were

introduced from Australia,

however, a large number selfintroduced

themselves, and they

are therefore classified as a New

You may think that the black

swan is a common bird in New

Zealand, as the estuary and the

wastewater ponds are home

to some 1000 swans which are

very visible. But the population

across the entire country only

numbers 60-70,000 birds, so we

are lucky to have a large enough

estuary to support as many as it

does.

The herbivores only eat vegetation

submerged under shallow

water, with seagrass being their

favourite food, but at high tide

they often venture grassed areas

nearby to feed on grass. It must

be a healthy diet as they can live

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

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.

Zone Control for your

ducted heat pump

Ducted heat pumps are a highly efficient

way to heat (or cool) your home. The

air from the heat pump is ducted to

several rooms or zones in your house.

Using a zone control system makes your

ducted heat pump even more efficient, by

specifying the amount of heat required

in each area, so not wasting energy to

overheat or overcool any room.

The AirTouch4 zone control system

from Smooth-Air takes ducted heat pump

air zoning to a whole new level of comfort

and energy efficiency.

AirTouch4 - The Ultimate Zone

Control

Have total control of your comfort zone:

AirTouch4 lets everyone enjoy a different

level of conditioned air in the room they

are in.

Save money on the power

bill, without compromising on

comfort, by only running the

heating or cooling where you

need it with Smart Zoning.

Plus with runtime tracking,

energy and airflow management

technology, you can enjoy greater

efficiency and savings from your

family’s ducted heat pump.

The AirTouch4 can

%

also

connect to Google Home and

Amazon Alexa.

Not every home is designed

equal. Not every room is either.

Temperatures can often fluctuate from

one room to the next because of sunlight,

room activity or other factors.

With AirTouch4’s Individual

Temperature Control Technology (ITC),

the AirTouch monitors temperatures

and smartly adjusts airflow as needed

around your home with the aid of multiple

wireless temperature sensors instead of a

single sensor in one location. When some

rooms get too hot or cold, the AirTouch

will adjust airflow to maintain your desired

temperature, without wasting conditioned

air on rooms already comfortable.
