Mother’s desperate bid for family

holiday – but time is running out

• By Bea Gooding

DANNI RASMUSSEN fears

time with her terminally ill son

is quickly running out.

She always dreamed of

travelling all over the country,

making memories as a family of

four before it was too late, and

now that dream is almost coming

true.

Last year, her eldest son Alize

won a family trip to the Gold

Coast in a competition run by

radio station MoreFM for the

kindness he showed his younger

brother, Andre, who has periventricular

leukomalacia – a terminal

brain injury caused by a lack

of oxygen to the brain – among

other complications.

Covid-19 ground those plans

to a halt this year, which was why

Ms Rasmussen believed it was

the perfect time to embark on

the road trip of her dreams – but

sourcing funding for it was a different

story.

“I’ve always wanted to travel

with the children and do something

as a family, but I wanted

to wait until they got older,” she

said.

“We almost lost him [Andre]

– I got to his room and he was

completely purple. I thought it

was his time to pass away.”

The life-threatening incident

happened three weeks ago which

she said put things into perspective.

“But he eventually started

breathing again. A lot of things

came into realisation at that point

so we’ve decided to do the trip in

September before it’s too late.”

She has set up a givealittle page

to cover the costs of the four-week

trip, needing at least $10,000 for

transport, accommodation food

and any costs associated with

Andre’s medical equipment.

LOVE: Danni

Rasmussen holds

Andre, 4, with Avie

Avana, 2, and Alize,

11, who will soon

embark on a family

road trip.

GOODING

She said the goal alone was

at a minimum, which did not

account for activities and any

unexpected costs along the way.

League clubrooms get go-ahead

• By Bea Gooding

THE HALSWELL Hornets

Rugby League Club has been

given the go-ahead to build new

clubrooms.

Work on the $2m facility is

expected to start in November

and will replace the old earthquake

damaged clubrooms in

Halswell Domain.

Said club committee member

Colin Fenwick:

“We started

this process 10

years ago, so

we can’t wait

– we’re all looking

forward

Colin Fenwick

to it.

“We reckon

we’ll have one of the best rugby

league facilities in the South

Island, potentially even in New

Zealand.”

The previous clubrooms,

which were 40-years-old, were

deemed unsafe to occupy,

which Mr Fenwick said was

“not worthwhile” to bring them

up to standard because the

repairs would have cost more

than the construction of a new

building.

The club was able to acquire

a building consent for a new

building and was currently going

through a process to obtain

the very best

“We consider ourselves in a

fortunate situation to be able

to provide a service for a lot of

Mr Fenwick.

Once construction begins,

the clubrooms will take

approximately nine months

to complete, which will be

• From page 1

“It’s important that we can have

those fun memories with him

anywhere in our homeland especially

when he’s not with us anymore,” she

said.

“There will be nothing worse than

going to do those things and feeling

that he missed out.”

In 2015 Ms Rasmussen was overjoyed

to learn she was pregnant with

triplets.

That joy quickly turned sour when

a raft of complications arose, causing

the loss of one of her babies during

early pregnancy, with the other two

babies born prematurely at 24 weeks.

The twins were “fighting for their

lives” following an emergency Caesarean,

but weighing in at 345gm,

baby Ace did not survive.

Andre clung to life weighing

890gm, undergoing serious operations

to keep him alive, but he developed

PVL while in the neonatal intensive

care unit which caused brain

damage, and was also born with

chronic lung disease and epilepsy.

“It’s horrible watching him suffer,”

she said.

Raising Alize, Andre and Avie

Avana as a single mother of three

was “very exhausting” at times, but

the love she felt for them was what

kept her going.

Leading Lady: A life in the spotlight

by Vivienne allan

Articulate and intelligent, Eve Poole had a passion for the theatre andthe arts.

Her desire to protect one of Invercargill’s cultural icons led her into politics and she

was elected as the city’s first woman mayor in 1983.

Cath Tizard broke similar ground in Auckland that year – the two becoming trailblazers

at each end of the country. As a member of the QEII Arts Council, Eve played an active

role in encouraging the visual and performing arts across the country. She was equally

at home on the stage as an actor and director; on popular national TV shows, and

as a member of the NZ Committee on Women. Vivienne Allan tells the story of her

mother’s life with warmth and honesty, beginning with the struggle to find passage out

of Germany in the 1930s. When war broke out Eve, still only 17 and living with her

family in Tel Aviv, joined the British Army, serving as a driver in Egypt. There she met

her NZ husband and, after discharge, moved to Invercargill to raise their family. Eve’s

practicality, determination and humanity saw her retain the mayoralty for four terms

until her death in 1992.

Lionheart

by Ben Kane

1179 - Henry II’s armies have swept through England, Wales - and now Ireland.

Irish nobleman Ferdia has been imprisoned in Wales to ensure the good behaviour of

his rebellious father. But during a skirmish to relieve a castle under attack, Ferdia saves

the life of the man who would become one of the most legendary warriors in history:

Richard Coeur de Lion. The Lionheart.Taken as Richard’s squire, Ferdia crosses the

Narrow Sea to defeat the rebellious nobles in Aquitaine, besieging castles and fighting

bloody battles with brutal frequency.

But treachery and betrayal lurk around every corner. Infuriated by his younger brother

Richard’s growing reputation, the king’s heir Henry rebels. And Ferdia learns that the

biggest threat to Richard’s life may not be a foreign army - but Richard’s own family.

Metamorphosis:

A Scientist’s Story

by Glen Metcalf

“There has been a revolution in women’s lives in the ninety years since I was born.

We have emerged from a stultifying era when we were chattels of men into an age

when even the most powerful positions in New Zealand are open to women. I have

lived through stirring times.”

The Silk House

by Kayte nunn

Weaving. Healing. Haunting. Australian history teacher Thea Rust arrives at an

exclusive boarding school in the British countryside only to find that she is to look

after the first intake of girls in its 150-year history. She is to stay with them in Silk

House, a building with a long and troubled past, where the shadows hide more

mysteries than she could ever imagine. In the late 1700s, Rowan Caswell leaves

her village to work in the home of an English silk merchant. In London, Mary-Louise

Stephenson lives amid the clatter of the weaving trade and dreams of becoming a

silk designer, a job that is the domain of men. Arriving in the market town of Oxleigh,

she brings with her a length of fabric woven with a pattern of deadly plants that will

have far-reaching consequences for all who dwell in the silk house.

Untamed:

Stop pleasing, start living

by Glennon doyle

Who were you before the world told you who to be? Part inspiration, part memoir, Untamed

explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet the expectations of

the world, and instead dare to listen to and trust in the voice deep inside us.

Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a

galvanising wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible

mother is not one who slowly dies for her children,but one who shows them how to

fully live. It is also the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set

boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honour our anger and heartbreak, and unleash

our truest, wildest instincts.Untamed shows us how to be brave.

And, as Glennon insists, ‘The braver we are, the luckier we get.’

Volunteers go with flow to share heritage

A RESTORED 19th-century

waterwheel – along with a group

of hardy volunteers – is driving

interest in a popular heritage

park overlooking Lyttelton

Harbour.

Orton Bradley Park in Charteris

Bay is home to one of the few

operating historical waterwheels

in New Zealand, along with Canterbury’s

oldest stone structure

– the Old Stone Cottage – built

in 1848.

Supported by a city council

heritage incentive grant, the

ongoing maintenance of the

rare waterwheel and old stables

continues to help draw people to

the site.

City council head of urban

regeneration, design and heritage

Carolyn Ingles said that the

waterwheel and stables are very

worthy of the city’s support.

“While Christchurch continues

to look to the future, it is equally

important to value our past and

the early innovation that has

helped shape our region,” Ms

Ingles said.

“Both the stables and the mill

house are scheduled as significant

heritage items in the District

Plan.”

Park manager Ian Luxford

said its owner, Orton Bradley,

devised a clever system in 1893

using water – via the waterwheel

– to drive a generator to power

HARD-WORKING: Malcolm Pearson, 90, Dick Barnett, 93, Colin McLeod, 80, and Paul Willan, 80,

have shown a long commitment to Orton Bradley Park and its history.

his home and various tools,

including a grindstone for blade

shearers.

Mr Luxford, who has overseen

the park for 12 years, said the

grant has helped ensure that the

waterwheel continues to operate,

and – along with the rest of the

park’s heritage precinct – offer a

special insight into colonial life in

Canterbury.

“Bradley imported the waterwheel

from Britain,” he said.

“It was the time of the industrial

revolution and waterwheels

were being pulled out of factories

and workshops and replaced, so

Bradley brought one out here to

use on his farm.

“It is an amazing heritage

piece, providing electricity for the

homestead, and a really important

part of our colonial history

and the area’s development as

people made the most of what

they had.”

Mr Luxford said Mr Bradley

“was really an innovator, rather

than a farmer.”

After taking over the property

from his father in 1892, Bradley

held a lifelong interest in science

and technology, and was a

pioneer in ecology, recognising

the importance of habitats.

Mr Luxford said that volunteers

– aged in their 70s and 80s

– “help power the park today.”

He said that the restored flax

mill house, farm buildings,

stables and machinery are all

in working order, “thanks to

our volunteers,” who have also

maintained the replica of the

original Bradley family home,

reconstructed from park timber

and now a summer cafe.

“We are very fortunate to

have a group of dedicated volunteers

who carry out a range of

maintenance projects, including

recladding buildings, creating

special items in our workshop

and ensuring that our heritage

precinct is well-maintained,” Mr

Luxford said.

“One of the volunteers has

painted the heritage buildings

several times.”

He said that all the volunteers

have shown amazing commitment

to the park and its history.

“Today we have so many families

coming to enjoy the park,

splash in the stream and explore

the heritage buildings.”

People visiting the 650ha

site can also take in walking

and mountain bike tracks, an

adventure playground, a waterfall

and native trees. It remains a

working farm 175 years later.

Taste & tradition draw

customers to local butchery

There are two distinctive characteristics about

the small local butcher shop in Selwyn Street,

Everybody’s Butchery. Firstly, it is owned and

operated by a woman, and in this traditionally maledominated

industry you don’t find many women,

and secondly it specialises in authentic German

smallgoods, made from scratch on the premises.

Owner Lisa Willert trained as a butcher in her

home country of Germany, though it wasn’t her first

career choice.

“Originally I wanted to train as a joiner, but was

told I wasn’t strong enough, so I went into butchery

instead,” Lisa explains.

After spending the next three years in her

hometown learning all aspects of the butchery trade,

Lisa wanted to “see the world”, with her travels

eventually bringing her to New Zealand in 2009.

After working for the next few years, she purchased

Everybody’s Butchery

seven years ago at age

23.

Since then she has

gained a growing

number of satisfied

customers, who

flock there for the

smallgoods she and

her assistant make

Many of the recipes

have been passed

on to her from her

The smallgoods are made from

pure ingredients to authentic

German recipes.

grandfather, who was also a butcher,

and the range includes salamis,

sausages, biersticks and beef jerky.

“I don’t use any fillers, they are

all made from pure meat and pure

spices,” Lisa says. “And they are

suitable for keto, paleo and glutenfree

diets.”

Adding to the line-up, Lisa offers a

small selection of other delicatessen

products, including olives, free range

eggs, and Emilio’s cheese made in

Darfield.

Of course, Everybody’s Butchery

caters for all their customers’ meat

requirements, stocking the full

range of beef, pork and lamb cuts,

all of which are locally sourced.

(Incidentally,

Everybody’s

Butchery was established

in 1906, and is the

oldest butchery shop in

Christchurch.)

Customers can also

go to the website

everybodysbutchery.co.nz

where they can browse

the range of quality meats

and smallgoods, and click

and collect their purchases

or click and have them

delivered to home or work.

Lisa Willert displays a selection of her authentic

German smallgoods.

The shop is also licensed to process animals from

hunting, and home kills.

“Kiwis like hunting, so I do a lot of that

processing,” Lisa says.

Lisa’s husband, also from Germany, is in the food

business too, operating a food truck in Manchester

Street. They have two young children, so it’s a busy

life for this hardworking pair, who have made New

Zealand home and are providing a fusion of Kiwi

and German taste traditions for us to enjoy.

Changing the perception of libraries

MIKE MORONEY is on a

mission to change people’s

perceptions of libraries – and

librarians.

He has launched a new library

interview series, The Unlikely

Librarian, which features conversations

with local writers in

equally unlikely locations.

Award-winning author, performer

and poet Ben Brown will

be the first to feature in the series

which kicks off next month,

where book lovers will also be

able to soak up the conversation

in person.

For Mr Moroney, of Linwood,

it was an opportunity to reach a

younger age group – particularly

men – who may not realise all

the resources and facilities that a

library can offer.

“I wanted to get out and about

among the community and find

a way to engage people and stoke

interest in our libraries, along

with sharing fantastic works by

some of our best local writers,”

he said.

“There are so many creatives

living in my own neighbourhood

that I thought ‘why not start the

conversation in Lyttelton with a

poet and award-winning writer

and try out a friendly approach.”

Mr Moroney said people were

series to remind people that

“It is also an opportunity for

people to see that librarians

come in many guises. For example,

I am over six feet, covered

in tattoos and have a very bushy

beard,” he said.

libraries – and librarians.

“Our ‘unlikely librarian’ is a

gifted talker and knows how to

share a good story with our burgeoning

library audience.

“We hope to make the most

of a casual atmosphere where

people can sit back and take in a

creative approach to ‘our library’

in a non-traditional setting.”

Among Brown’s most popular

works are a memoir, A Fish in

the Swim of the World, an awardwinning

children’s book, A

Booming in the Night – illustrated

by Helen Taylor – and a book

of poems, Between the Kindling

and the Blaze: Reflections on the

Concept of Mana.

“We will talk about Ben’s work,

the creative process, and the role

of libraries in connecting to his

audience,” said Mr Moroney.

Starfish Swimwear - making swimsuits

right here in Christchurch since 1997

Starfish have been making swimsuits

right here in Christchurch for over twenty

years. In that time they have heard plenty

of stories about swimsuits that stretched,

faded or just plain disintegrated and it’s a

common story. One that doesn’t need to be.

People need to know what they are

purchasing, what they can expect from

their swimwear. Chlorine resistant is

available, it has exceptional wear in pools,

heated spas, saunas or hydro-therapy and

you can have it. Starfish have it on the

racks now or you can choose to have one

made for you in only a few days.

Women know the annoyance trying to

buy a suit. You spend so much time looking

and trying on and in the end say: “It will

do”. Only to find themselves having to do it

again in six months time. Why go through

all that when you can actually get one that

will fit you properly and last.

It’s the same with children’s suits, they are

also available in chlorine resistant fabrics.

The great thing with that is children grow

out of their suits before they wear out. So

these suits can be handed down to the

next child or given to family or friends.

However if there is no one to pass them

on to they can be donated to a charity so

another family can use them. They are not

throw away clothing that only lasts one

child - they go on and on. That’s good for

everyone.

Call into Starfish they know swimwear

and they will help you make the choice

that’s right for you.

Starfish Swimwear is located at 239C

Colombo Street or phone 379 0009.

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.

Protecting chicks makes

kingfisher aggressive

THE COLOURFUL little

kingfisher are found at several

sites around our estuary.

They prefer to perch rather

than walk on the ground on

mudflats.

You will see them on rocks,

logs, jetties and even washing

lines.

They eat insects, lizards and

mice but mainly crabs which they

return to their perch where they

batter the legs off before swallowing

the main body.

Pellets of indigestible remains

are regurgitated and you will see

these, together with piles of crab

legs on and near rocks when you

walk along the South New Brighton

jetty, which is a favourite dinner

table for these birds.

They may be a small bird but

are absolutely fearlessly aggressive

when protecting chicks and will

attack other birds coming too

close and even dive-bomb mammals

such as cats and dogs.

They nest inside trees and sand

cliffs where they repeatedly fly

in heat pumps

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

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

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

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

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

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

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

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

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

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

HIP PAIN

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated

than surgery. After only one treatment you

should know that it will work for you. Call

them before 31 July and save $50.00 on

that treatment

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

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

HOME & HEATING

Ground moisture barrier

under low sub-floor

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm

and healthy for their families throughout

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects

many of our older properties which suffer

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many

people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests have

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise

from the ground and enter a house every day,

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and

musty smells. Moulds can produce various

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and

very young are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising

damp and are there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,

flowable foam concrete under your timber

floored home.

While insulation is important, it has been

recognised that it is dampness that is the real

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes

Standards introduced by the government

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has

a requirement to install ground moisture

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight

moisture in the home.

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation

on the underside of a timber floor can occur

where the floor is suspended over damp

ground and the inside air temperature falls

close to the crawl space air temperature.

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier

under the suspended wooden floor of your

home, even when there is no crawl space.

• BRANZ Appraised; Appraisal Number 961

• Members of the Insulation Association of

New Zealand.

• We offer a free measure and quote in the

Canterbury region with no obligations.

• Assessments can be made in all other

regions by arrangement.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete

Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote

and complimentary appraisal of your

underfloor ground moisture barrier needs.

What makes a great

Heat Transfer System?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of

HTU Heat Transfer Units with carefully

selected components to optimise the

system:

They use insulated duct to transfer

the heated air with as little heat loss as

possible. The fan moves sufficient air

for the distance and number of rooms,

without being noisy. The diffusers send

the heat to the floor, not to skim the

across the ceilings. All components are

good quality - designed to operate for

years without problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range

of options: One to four rooms, with or

without thermostat and with a choice

of grilles and diffusers. HTUs improve

energy efficiency in your house, as you are

using excess heat. They have low power

consumption - only 80watts for the three

room system. Circulating air through the

house also reduces the risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU version

with downjet diffusers, which throw the

warm air downwards to the floor. These

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to

regulate which room receives the most

warm air.

An average size living room requires 2-4

kw of heating, yet appliances such as log

burners generate heat in the region of 10

-20kw. This leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of

heat which sits at high level in the heated

room, usually above door level.

SOUTHERN VIEW

Heat transfer units work best where very

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate

warm air around the room with no

layering, are not suitable as a heat source

by themselves. However, if you have both

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer

systems with thermostat can work very

well: The heat pump stops operating once

the heat from the fire has heated the room,

and the heat transfer kicks in above this

point, once there is a layer of hot air at the

ceiling.
