‘Look on the bright side’ –

advice from 100-year-old

• By Bea Gooding

A MORNING tea filled with

hot drinks, cake and Zoom calls

marked Averil Warren’s 100th

birthday at Woodcote Retirement

Village on July 26.

But it was an occasion tinged

with sadness, as the Covid-19

travel restrictions prevented her two

daughters, who live in Australia,

from attending.

Turning 100-years-old was just

another day for Mrs Warren.

“It’s no different from yesterday,

or the day before that,” she said.

She believed “good behaviour”

and the occasional brandy or dry

ginger ale was what might have

contributed to her long life.

Although she “loved a good

party,” she was disappointed her

daughters, Judy and Kay were not

able to be there.

However, her nieces, nephews and

other relatives travelled far and wide

from across the country to celebrate

with the birthday girl.

“I was disappointed, but I understand

that it’s something I have to

put up with,” she said.

“But I’m very lucky to be in a

place like this where I’m well looked

after.”

Mrs Warren was born in Port

Chalmers, Dunedin, and grew up in

Otago. • Turn to page 4

MILESTONE: Averil Warren’s marriage to Richard Warren was the “happiest” day of her life – one of many memories she

reflected on during her 100th birthday last month.

Police crack down on student drivers

“I fully support what they

the initiative.”

said high school students

are often not on their full

He said, for about the next

SAFETY: Police are patrolling around Canterbury high schools to make sure

students are abiding by the conditions of their driver licences.

If students are found to be

breaching their driver licence

conditions for the first time,

police will give them the option

of attending a seminar

encouraging them to complete

the next stage of driver licence

training.

Said Cottam: “We’re

working with those kids and

giving out some education,

running some seminars with

partners such as ACC and

fire and encouraging them

[students] to go forward and

get the next stage of their

licences.

“We believe education and

changing behaviours is far

better than straight out enforcement,”

he said.

Said Holstein: “I love the

approach of, sort of, approaching

people, reminding [them].

It wasn’t about just imposing

penalties all the time, it was

about educating and reminding

and I think that was a

really good thing to do.”

Turning to art

in tough times

• From page 1

Her mother died when she was

seven-years-old, therefore she had

to move in with her grandparents

until her teenage years.

She eventually relocated to Wellington

and worked at the James

Smiths Department Store for 13

years as a retail assistant, both in

the city and at the Porirua branch.

“I loved it, and I still keep in

touch with one or two of the girls

who used to work there,” she said.

She described her marriage to

Richard Warren as the “happiest”

day of her life.

But when she was 36-years-old,

she faced a significant hardship

when her son died due to struggles

with asthma.

Turning to art was what

brightened up her day and got her

through the toughest of times.

“I love art – I’m a very arty

person. I do paintings and I love

music,” she said.

As Covid-19 continued to claim

more jobs and cause financial

uncertainty, she reminded others

of their resilience and encouraged

them to stay positive in spite of the

circumstances.

“Make the most you can in life

and look on the bright side as

much as you can,” she said.

“Life just goes on.”

Street name expert honoured

• By Louis Day

AFTER SPENDING the

majority of his 46-year career at

the city council overseeing the

naming of roads, Bob Pritchard

has had one named after him.

The retired subdivision officer

was unaware the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board had approved the name of

a road in Halswell as Pritchards

Way when approached by the

Western News.

“When my wife told me, I

must admit I had a tear or two,”

he said.

“It is the opposite side of the

coin kind of because I was normally

doing the reports to get the

names approved,” he said.

Pritchards Way will now

become the official name of

one of the roads comprising the

Country Downs subdivision off

Quiafes Rd.

Pritchard, a former subdivision

officer who retired in 2017,

first started at the council in

1970 when wind-up machines

were used to calculate areas for

subdivisions and a typing pool

produced council letters.

In his career, he oversaw thousands

of new road names where

he would make recommendations

to local community boards

on whether a proposed street

SIGN SCIENTIST: Bob Pritchard holds the mock road sign he was given after retiring

from city council after more than four decades there. An official sign in his name is set

to be put in place in Halswell.

name met the city council’s

criteria.

He also helped come up with

ideas for hundreds of new street

names, sometimes turning to

historic records or reference

books about flowers or New Zealand

rivers for inspiration.

His job sparked a personal

interest in the stories and history

behind street names which has

carried through into his retirement.

To this day he is continuing

to supply information to the

Christchurch City Libraries,

which keeps a searchable

database recording the history

behind street names.

He discovered that Kitchener’s

Knoll in Halswell was the spot

where British Field Marshall

Lord Kitchener, mounted on

horseback, surveyed local troops

when he visited the city in 1910.

He still has a “multitude” of

books and personal records on

the history behind the names of

streets across the city and Banks

Peninsula.

Park and ride idea

mooted from

south-west to city

Do you snore?

Always tired?

• By Louis Day

A FACILITY which would

allow residents of the

south-west to leave their

vehicles and then take

public transport from there

into the central city could

be a future possibility.

Halswell Ward city

councillor Anne Galloway

has asked city council staff

to investigate the viability

of a “park and ride” facility

in the vicinity of Halswell

Rd.

She said this would

effectively give residents

the ability to park their

vehicles at a location and

take public transport into

the central city from the

same place.

“This is about creating a

public transport network

that works for people. It is

about our goals of getting

people out of cars and on

public transport,” she said.

“With what we are doing

along Lincoln Rd with pro-

Anne Galloway

viding bus priority lanes

which will cut travel times

for people using the bus,

they will be able to move

quickly down the road

without getting caught in

traffic.”

The city council is planning

to install bus priority

lanes down Lincoln Rd and

also Moorhouse Ave. The

project is expected to cost

$4 million in total.

City council head of

transport Richard Osborne

said introducing the peak

hour bus lanes would

reduce the average bus trip

by six-and-a-half minutes.

“That should make going

by bus a more attractive

option for people. The

south-west of Christchurch

is growing fast, with 35,000

people expected to move

into that area over the next

30 years,” he said.

Galloway said getting

more people on to public

transport also aligned with

the council’s goal for the

city to be carbon neutral

by 2045.

“Getting people out

of cars and on to public

transport would make a

significant difference.”

In the 2016/2017 financial

year, Christchurch

emitted an estimated

2,485,335 gross tonnes in

carbon emissions.

Transportation was

the largest contributor

to the city’s emissions,

accounting for 53 per cent.

You may be at risk of sleep apnoea.

Wilsons Barrington Pharmacy

are making a difference to

their community by offering a

game changing sleep apnoea

service to reach the 80% of

undiagnosed obstructive sleep

apnoea (OSA) sufferers in

New Zealand.

There are a number of symptoms

that could be a sign of OSA,

including choking or gasping

for air at night, loud persistent

snoring, frequent visits to the

bathroom & waking up tired.

Left untreated these can lead

to long term health

consequences such as Type 2

diabetes, high blood pressure,

obesity and depression.

Fortunately it is now easy to get

diagnosed for OSA with Wilsons’

Pharmacy Sleep Services program.

People can now simply walk into

their pharmacy and get tested for

OSA straight away.

The overnight home sleep test

allows a person to sleep in the

comfort of their own bed. No doctor

referral is required. The results of

the home sleep test are assessed

by a sleep physician and provided

7-10 days later. If a person’s results

show they have OSA they can begin

a 4 week trial of CPAP therapy.

If you think you’re at risk of sleep

apnoea contact Wilsons Barrington

Pharmacy today to book a home

sleep test.

Students caring for the environment

• By Bea Gooding

PAPER BUSINESS cards may

be a thing of the past thanks to

an innovative group of young

enterprise students.

Businesses can now share their

contact details electronically by

tapping their “STAP Card” onto

the recipient’s phone, which also

produced links to a website or

social media.

Cashmere High School year

12 students Jayden Rosanowski,

Felix Strahl and Emilia Dybka

recognised the need for a sustainable

option after learning

that six million trees were cut

down each year to produce business

cards.

“We were looking to be innovative

in some way, then we

thought about how [paper] business

cards are a waste of time

and take up too much space,”

said Felix, of St Martins.

“Instead of carrying around

thousands of business cards,

they can now just have one for

each for their employees.”

Compatible with all phones,

each card contained an electronic

chip or QR code that the

students programmed themselves

and worked in a similar

fashion to payWave.

For now, the cards were made

INNOVATIVE: Emilia Dybka, Felix Strahl, Jayden Rosanowski and business studies teacher

of plastic, but the team aimed to

produce a biodegradable plastic

alternative in the future.

Felix said the innovation,

which was a first in NZ, would

impact the future of business

and how people operated as it cut

costs, was less time consuming

and had fewer adverse effects on

the environment.

“Eighty-eight per cent of all

business cards are thrown away

within a week,” said Jayden, of

Halswell.

The young entrepreneurs have

received more than 30 orders

since their online shop was

launched.

It also caught the interest

of other local business card

companies who have considered

purchasing the cards in bulk.

Said Felix: “People love it,

we’ve received messages from

people who are really happy with

their purchase. We’ve been told

it’s made things a whole lot easier

for them.”

In response to the negative

environmental impact of paper

business cards, they teamed up

with non-profit organisation

One Tree Planted.

For every card sold, $2 was donated

to the organisation which

will go towards the planting of a

new tree at locations across the

globe.

The venture was part of the

Young Enterprise Scheme which

has been rolled out into schools’

business studies programmes.

They were hoping to continue

the project next year.

“All of us have a passion

for business, it’s been a great

kick-start towards our careers in

the business world.”

SENIOR LIVING

Amazing health miracles

from the silkworm

Serrapeptase an enzyme produced in

silkworms may become one of the most

widely used natural health solutions

for its ability to replace the majority of

anti-inflammatory drugs and bypass

operations. It is nature’s answer to pain,

chronic inflammation and clogged

arteries. Enzymes are essential for

life. Constantly working to build and

regenerate the body, they help digest

food, break down toxins and cleanse

the blood, in addition to thousands of

other functions. A lack of enzymes in the

body leads to food intolerances, allergies,

digestive issues, disease and poor health.

Studies show an average 70-year old has

only 20 percent of the enzymes found in

the body of a 20-year old.

Serrapeptase is a natural antiinflammatory,

which can clean, clear and

reduce inflammation while dissolving

non-living tissue including blood clots,

cysts, arterial plaque and mucus. One of

its major benefits is its ability to reduce

pain.

The serrapeptase enzyme was first found

in the intestine of the silkworm in the late

1960’s. The silkworm uses it to dissolve the

hard cocoon, allowing the moth to escape

as well as to digest the tough mulberry

leaves it feeds on. Serrapeptase can now be

produced commercially by a fermentation

process of the microorganism Serriata

E15. It is prescribed by doctors across

Europe and Asia.

Clinical studies over the last 40 years

have shown serrapeptase to have

remarkable benefits in a vast range of

health conditions including; blocked

arteries, cardiovascular, arthritis,

asthma, lung conditions, pain, tumors,

autoimmune disease and many more.

In Germany, Dr. Hans Nieper clinically

researched serrapeptase and found it

could clear blocked arteries and prevent

the need for bypass operations. U.K.

pharmacist Dennis Gore talked on BBC

radio about the dramatic results he has

had with serrapeptase. One case was a

man in his 60’s who had been a heavy

smoker, was wheeled into his pharmacy.

He was breathless due to emphysema

and COPD and could hardly talk. He

was on antibiotics, oxygen and getting

bad infections. Dennis prescribed him

serrapeptase and three weeks later the

man walked into his pharmacy, with no

wheelchair and no breathlessness and said

to Dennis he was no longer on antibiotics,

nor oxygen cylinders and was feeling

great.

Serrapeptase has been shown to be

very safe supplement and according

to researchers can be used with most

medications. However let your doctor

know as medications may need reducing

or stopping as the need for them reduces.

Serrapeptase and more information

is available from the natural health

advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural

Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: (03) 388-5757.

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.

Phone 03 376 4608, 0508FOAMCO or www.

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.

60

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.
