Traffic

light

funding

brought

forward

• By Louis Day

THE LONG-AWAITED traffic

lights for the controversial

Harewood-Gardiners-Breens Rds

intersection could arrive sooner

than previously anticipated.

In March, city councillors

decided to co-ordinate the installation

of traffic lights at the

intersection with the construction

of the Wings to Wheels Major

Cycleway, with

work on the

cycleway set to

commence in

2026.

However, the

city council

recently decided

while finalising

its budget for

Aaron Keown

the year to bring forward funding

for the project so construction on

the $1.2 million lights can begin

in 2022.

City councillor Aaron Keown,

who has been fighting for the

traffic lights since 2016, said the

decision to bring the process

forward was the “definition of a

no-brainer.”

“To sum it up, about bloody

time,” he said. •Turn to page 5

Police crack down on student drivers

POLICING AROUND west

The upgrades will be completed

Meanwhile, safety upgrades at

intersection have now started.

Improvements include the

installation of a pedestrian island,

Village green project back on track

• By Bea Gooding

COVID-19 may have slowed

progress down at the Bishopdale

Village Green project, but in

spite of the delays its organisers

are working hard to ensure its

completion by the end of this

year.

The Bishopdale Beautification

Project group jumped back

into action once the lockdown

ended and have since installed

the concrete work required to

house picnic tables and wooden

seating.

The open space was in dire

need of a facelift and now consisted

of a colourful footpath,

mural, water fountain and the

planting of cherry blossom trees

– all of which were completed

last year.

Bill Greenwood, of Enliven

Bishopdale, said the project had

been in the works for nearly two

years and that community spirits

remained high in spite of the

pandemic putting a spanner in

the works.

“It’s been brilliant fun working

with the community on such a

great project,” he said.

A large, concrete chequerboard

to play draughts or chess will be

constructed, along with a hopscotch

court, in the coming weeks.

The chequerboard also doubled

as a storytelling area for

children once bench seating was

installed.

The project was supported

by the city council and the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board, but it was

run by the Bishopdale Community

Trust and the Enliven

Bishopdale Group.

The community board also

granted $10,000 for community

groups to use to make improvements

to the Bishopdale Village

Mall and will be shared across a

number of projects at the site.

Once completed, Greenwood

said the village green would be

an important community asset

and hub as it will be utilised by

many groups, such as the nearby

YMCA and the Bishopdale Library

and Community Centre.

He was grateful for how

other businesses stepped up and

contributed to the cause such

as the donation of picnic tables

from the Bishopdale Menzshed

and concrete work by Allied

Concrete.

PROGRESS: Chris Coles (left), of the

Bishopdale Community Trust, and

Clare Whatmough, of the Bishopdale

Centre Association, are part of the

team responsible for the revitalisation

of the village green.

Greenwood, Dave James and Lindsay

“We’ve been working with the

from local businesses; Allied

Concrete has been phenomenal.”

Dangerous intersection

to get traffic lights sooner

• From page 1

“This is something that

this community has been

asking for decades. I don’t

think it is an unreasonable

request, children should

be able to walk to school

and have a safe way to get

across the road.

“It is not safe for children

to get to school like this,

but these lights will make

it safer,” Keown said.

Breens Intermediate

principal Nikki Clarke

said the intersection had

been an issue for the community

for a long time,

especially since the traffic

flowing through it had

increased post-earthquake.

“Anything we can do to

get that intersection functioning

in a safer fashion

would be a good thing for

our community,” she said.

Said Harewood School

principal Julie Greenwood:

“Anything that enhances

the safety of our students

and slows traffic down on

Harewood Rd is a positive.”

In spite of the clear

community consensus, the

installation of the lights

has been labelled the least

safe option out of the three

put forward by city council

staff.

Staff recommended

changes to the configuration

of the intersection along

with a signalised pedestrian

crossing to alleviate some

of the concerns held by the

community.

I am standing for NZ First because:

•On my return after working overseas five years ago, I was struck by the

inequality and a new class of working poor finding it hard to make ends meet

let alone owning a home, the deterioration of public services, and a lack of

investment in infrastructure to keep pace with unfettered population growth.

•I was also appalled by National’s obsession with a low wage workforce

instead of training young people - putting profit before people and the

environment, their lack of compassion towards the elderly and other vulnerable

groups, and their relentless sales of land, state houses, and primary businesses

to foreign interests.

My Priorities:

•A more egalitarian, inclusive and just society in which everyone can provide

for their families with well-paying jobs and affordable housing without being

burdened with a lifetime of debt.

•Environmental, economic and sovereign rights vigorously protected.

•New Zealand as a responsible Pacific leader and protector.

•Accessible and high quality health care.

•Future generations able receive education and training well matched to their potential.

•More government investment in infrastructure needs, research and

development, and job rich sustainable industries.

•Implementing the Provincial Growth Fund to boost regional economies.

•Strong border security with all returnees paying their fair share.

•An immigration policy strictly targeted to genuine labour and skills shortages.

•Always looking after the elderly and all vulnerable groups.

INR Testing

Service

INR Tests at Your

Local Pharmacy

Our patients tell us that

they prefer to have their

INR tests done at their local

pharmacy as it saves them

the wait times at a hospital

or doctor’s rooms. A test at

the pharmacy takes just 5-10

minutes.

Did you know that we offer an

anticoagulation monitoring service

to help you better understand and

manage your Warfarin medicine

here in the pharmacy?

Warfarin is the most commonly

used oral anticoagulant in New

Zealand. Its successful use

requires monitoring using a blood

clotting test also known as a

INR (International Normalised

Ratio) test.

The pharmacy-based Warfarin

service called The Community

Pharmacy Anti-Coagulation

Management Service (CPAMS)

is available in select pharmacies

throughout New Zealand.

Bishopdale Unichem is one of

those pharmacies.

Your

Local

Pharmacy

What is an INR

test?

An INR test measures the time it

takes for your blood to clot. It is

used to monitor blood-thinning

medicines, such as Warfarin.

The test consists of a pin prick of

blood from your finger. The blood

sample will be processed through

a machine that will provide you

with instant results.

Your pharmacist will be able

to adjust your Warfarin dosage

accordingly on the day.

Our pharmacists will update

your GP with your INR level

results.

Why do I need a

test?

Patients that are prescribed

Warfarin will need regular

INR tests to make sure their

prescription continues to work for

them. This may be once a month,

or more frequently if your INR

levels tend to fluctuate.

When should I get

a test?

Your test frequency will be

determined by your pharmacist or

GP.

If referred by a GP, your test will

be free.

Our experienced pharmacists

make the INR test quick, easy and

painless so come and talk with

us about how to register for this

service at Bishopdale Unichem.

Your Local Views

Providing clarity on policy and decisions

From the board

David Cartwright, chair

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board

YOUR community board works

to improve your relationship

with the city council, providing

better clarity on policy and

decisions made, and having

better communication with

our residents can only aid this

outcome.

It’s been great to see more

sunshine this week particularly

as the school term reconvenes.

Along with the sunshine it has

also been reassuring to know

that the country seems to have

dodged a bullet regarding a massive

outbreak of Covid-19 virus

from a health perspective.

While many families have

been affected with the loss of a

loved one we are lucky compared

to many northern hemisphere

countries.

From an economic point of

view there seems to be various

schools of thought on the

severity of impacts and the time

frames involved.

Recent data on inner-city

spending is encouraging and,

hopefully, our borders will reopen

soon and we will be able to

greet overseas visitors again.

Personally, I am delighted

to see the Te Pae Convention

Centre near completion, plus

progress being made on the

Christ Church Cathedral and

multi-use arena.

Last week we saw the city

council vote on the draft Annual

Plan and the resulting increase

in rates. Your community board

had advocated for zero rates

increase given the impact of

Covid-19. We will continue to

oversee city council projects and

spending to ensure maximum

value is achieved for every dollar

spent.

One part of the budget that

is still available to community

groups, youth and organisations

is strengthening community

funding that supports well-being

and resilience. Applications can

still be made and you should

contact the city council for more

details.

In our last meeting on the

Monday, July 20, we heard from

some local residents as part of a

proposal to rename Avonhead

Park Cemetery to Avonhead

Memorial Cemetery.

City council staff will now

ask for approval for the name

change from the Ministry of

PROGRESS:

A name

change is

proposed for

the Avonhead

Park

Cemetery

while work

on Te Pae

is nearly

complete.

Health, unfortunately the time

frame around when this possible

change is unknown.

Recently we also awarded

several local residents and businesses

with gardening awards –

congratulations to everyone who

was involved.

Anyone can attend our public

forums and chat to us about

issues that concern you. You

can contact our community

governance team to make a time

to speak at an upcoming community

board meeting. Topics

range from trees, parking and

traffic concerns to protection of

our waterways.

On August 24, we are acknowledging

several unsung heroes

in our community services

awards.

I look forward to being able

to share their names and stories

with you next time.

NOR’WEST PROPERTY UPDATE

Highsted Road auction

exceeds expectations

A recent auction on a property being marketed by

Karen Ellis of Ray White Bishopdale resulted in a

successful bid that went far beyond the property owners’

expectations.

Jon and Carol Schrafft had owned their rental

property at 97a Highsted Road for seven years, and

earlier this year decided it was time to think about

selling, though they were uncertain if it was a good time

to do so, due to the effects of Covid-19.

“We had started renovating the property before

lockdown and didn’t quite finish so we were behind the

eight-ball. We were thinking, are we going to get what

we want for the property,” Jon says.

“Karen came and did an appraisal, and we were happy

with that. We had bought and sold properties with

Karen before, and we had bought at auction, but hadn’t

sold at auction before. She advised us that it was a good

time to sell, and explained how the auction would go.”

Karen organised three open homes leading up to

auction day, with a total of 80 groups viewing the

property.

“The feedback we got after the open homes, and the

comments people had made about the property were

very good,” Jon says.

“We were given a full report after every open home,

and this included an analysis of how the advertising

was working. With the follow-up, we knew what was

happening, and any questions we had were

answered straight away.”

Auction day saw eight properties being

auctioned, attracting 100 potential buyers,

with Jon and Carol’s property being the first

to go under the hammer.

Karen says of the 80 groups that viewed

the property during the marketing

campaign, nine buyers were registered on

the day, with five of those competing in the

auction.

Speaking to The Star, Karen said the nine

bidders all wanted to bid, but the speed

hindered their opportunity to do so.

“There was great competition throughout

the auction and the final price far exceeded

the client’s expectations.”

That final price was $558,000, with the sale

being the highlight of the day.

“We got more than we expected,” Jon says, “and we

would certainly recommend Karen to anyone wanting to

sell their property.”

As both the Ray White Bishopdale and Ray White

Strowan offices are finding, auctions are proving

a popular and successful way to sell in the current

Christchurch market, with large numbers of potential

home buyers coming on stream.

Ray White New Zealand auctioneer Ben East says

nothing seems to be able stop a property market that has

strong momentum and continues to produce excellent

results.

“We say it time and time again but there’s no doubt

the time to sell is now. Selling seven out of eight equates

to an 87.5 per cent success rate – that’s incredible for our

vendors,” Mr East says.

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.

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.

Adapt your home to

YOUR IDEA

OF COMFORT

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.

NOR’WEST NEWS

RAY WHITE PAPANUI NEWS

Getting ready for a successful Spring sale

With only around four weeks until

Spring these are some tips to help

you prepare to stand out from the

crowd and make the most of spring’s

opportunities.

Renovate what’s outdated: If your

kitchen or bathroom are showing their

age or in need of repair they should

be updated or fixed before you sell.

This may not require a huge outlay

financially, you can think small with

renovations. Rather than replace the

kitchen cabinets, just replace the doors

or the benchtop if that’s the main

telltale sign of the kitchen’s age. New

flooring, an upgraded shower mixer

and a new towel rail may be all your

bathroom needs for a lift. If you aren’t

sure what to do, one of the team at

Ray White Papanui would be happy

to consult with you on what might be

worth investing in for the best return at

the time of sale.

Get it fixed: Look after those longterm

maintenance issues you’ve been

putting off. Now is the time to start

sorting the broken automatic garage

door, the cracked window pane, the

rangehood light and any other little

items you haven’t got around to fixing

yet. Have a walk around your home and

make a list.

Declutter: You are going to be moving

anyway so now is the time to start

donating or disposing of any items you

no longer need – paperwork, kids’ toys,

unused furniture.

Make it light and bright: Upgrade

or remove any old or tatty window

dressings to let the sun and the warm

air in for your Spring open homes. You

might even want to make the most of

the light by adding a brighter coat of

paint or hanging mirrors – mirrors are

great for adding light to your home and

opening spaces right up. Plant some

bright spring flowers in your garden.

Also, consider investing in some

brightly coloured throw pillows, rugs

and art.

Get the word out there: Since you’ll be

facing competition, it’s worth putting in

some extra effort into advertising your

sale and making your home stand out

from the crowd. Photos are important

so make sure they are high quality,

taken by a professional photographer

who specialises in real estate.

The more potential buyers you draw,

the better your chances of getting a

great result, so invest in advertising.

It costs money upfront, but you could

make it (and more) back in an increased

sale price if done well. If there are addons

that will get you extra exposure,

they might be worth considering.

It’s also worth thinking about where

you can list your house online. Use

a real estate salesperson who is

strong on social media and share your

advertisement by asking your friends

to share it, while also promoting your

property through your agent’s online

property listing websites to help spread

the message far and wide!

Give these tips a try to help you make

the most of spring when selling your

home. It can be a competitive market,

but there’s no doubt that it tends to be

a great time to go for it. Happy selling!

Olivia Hendry

Executive Assistant

The rental property market has been

very busy over the past few weeks with

huge enquiry on nearly everything we

have listed for rent across all types and

sizes of properties and in all areas! We

use an online tenant register system to

record details of anyone who is coming

through our ‘open homes’ which shows

we have had an enormous amount of

enquiry, and tenants registering.

REINZ statistics are showing the

median rents in Canterbury have

increased but only marginally from May

2019 ($390) to May 2020 at $400 per

week. February and March saw a small

increase up to $410, however April and

May saw them stabilise back down at

$400. The number of properties rented

during the past 12 months (according

to bond data), has increased quite

significantly however, increasing from

1,680 in May 2019 to 2,349 in May

2020.

So, where to from here? While we

cannot predict the future, with so many

people out there on the search for a

rental property, it would seem likely

that we will experience a shortage, and

in some pockets of Canterbury we are

already beginning to see this!

This means that we need more rentals

for tenants in Canterbury, and with

interest rates so low it could be a

great time to look into purchasing an

investment property.
