INCREASING demand for free<br />

legal services due to Covid-19<br />

has prompted the Government<br />

to provide significant funding<br />

to community law centres<br />

across the country.<br />

Community Law Canterbury<br />

is among dozens to benefit from<br />

a $3.47 million funding boost<br />

over three years – in addition to<br />

the almost $8 million in funding<br />

that was already announced<br />

in Budget <strong>20</strong><strong>20</strong>.<br />

The increase will add $1.2<br />

million to community law<br />

services in the current financial<br />

year.<br />

Bromley<br />

smell<br />

fails to<br />

improve<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

THREE MONTHS have passed<br />

since city council-run facilities<br />

Living Earth and EcoCentral<br />

were identified as significant<br />

odour emitters in Bromley and<br />

beyond.<br />

But since the city council implemented<br />

an adaptive management<br />

plan to mitigate the odour in<br />

June, an Environment Canterbury<br />

report shows the smell has<br />

worsened.<br />

In May, before the plan went<br />

ahead, 225 reports of compost<br />

odours were submitted by the<br />

community, which decreased in<br />

June to 174, but July in comparison<br />

rose to <strong>20</strong>4 reports.<br />

The plan is two months into<br />

its three-month trial to test and<br />

carry out necessary changes to<br />

alleviate the issues, which will<br />

identify if the changes were successful.<br />

Said Carol Anderson, who has<br />

lived on Bromley’s Seascape Gardens<br />

for 23 years: “It’s been pretty<br />

bad, the stench just kills me. Any<br />

smell blows directly across where<br />

we live and in other areas.<br />

Church construction starts<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

THE CONSTRUCTION of a<br />

$3.5 million church in Avonside<br />

has begun.<br />

The Most Holy Trinity Church<br />

on Stanmore Rd was destroyed<br />

in the February 22, <strong>20</strong>11, earthquake.<br />

It operated out of a much<br />

smaller, makeshift building for<br />

nine years but now a new church<br />

will be built on its original site<br />

after five years of planning.<br />

Its rebuild is under way and<br />

Reverend Jill Keir anticipates it<br />

will take about a year to complete.<br />

She said the new church will<br />

include two large spaces able to<br />

host about 100 people each for<br />

services and other gatherings, a<br />

small chapel, offices, and a new<br />

kitchen.<br />

Funding for it has come from<br />

insurance payouts.<br />

Keir said the new church<br />

will be a useful space for east<br />

Christchurch and have a positive<br />

impact on the community.<br />

“In my opinion, it will give<br />

us the opportunity to provide<br />

a much wider range of community<br />

activities. We hope it<br />

will become a community centre<br />

within the local area.”<br />

She said the building which<br />

the church has been operating<br />

out of for the last nine years will<br />

remain on-site and continue to<br />

be used as an additional space<br />

for activities.<br />

The original Most Holy Trinity<br />

Church was the first Anglican<br />

Church in Canterbury to be<br />

consecrated. That took place on<br />

February 24, 1857, it was established<br />

in 1855.<br />

On <strong>August</strong> 10, the first soil<br />

was broken before the construction<br />

of the new church began.<br />

About 60 people attended<br />

including Canterbury Anglican<br />

Bishop Peter Carrell​and<br />

Christchurch East MP Poto<br />

Williams.<br />

Keir said the plan is to<br />

consecrate the new church on<br />

February 24, <strong>20</strong>22, the same day<br />

this took place at the old church<br />

165 years earlier.<br />

BREAKING SOIL:<br />

Canterbury Anglican<br />

Bishop Peter Carrell​gets<br />

MILESTONE:<br />

A concept<br />

design of the<br />

new Most<br />

Holy Trinity<br />

Church being<br />

built on<br />

Stanmore Rd.<br />

It has taken<br />

five years<br />

to go from<br />

planning to<br />

construction.<br />

In Brief<br />

ROAD CLOSURE<br />

St Johns St is now closed<br />

between Glenroy St and Ferry<br />

Rd as part of the Woolston<br />

Village Upgrade. Construction<br />

includes renewing the<br />

underground sewer network<br />

which is badly degraded. The<br />

closure allows teams to work<br />

safely and continue sewer works<br />

on Ferry Rd and is expected<br />

to be completed in about four<br />

weeks.<br />

FEEDBACK SOUGHT<br />

Feedback is now open to update<br />

the city council’s Strengthening<br />

Communities Strategy.<br />

This strategy incorporates<br />

community group grants<br />

review and the community<br />

facilities plan which work in a<br />

range of ways to develop strong<br />

communities. Community<br />

participation encourages a sense<br />

of belonging and offers support<br />

in times of stress, and promote<br />

the wellbeing of individuals and<br />

families. Workshops are being<br />

organised by staff in community<br />

board areas to discuss how<br />

the city council can make the<br />

most of the opportunities and<br />

challenges over the next 10 years.<br />

14 and can be found at https://<br />

Resident of St.Albans, 58 and married with three children.<br />

Accomplished hospitality and recreation & events manager,<br />

with global experience running large complex operations<br />

in both the private and public sectors. Former owner of a<br />

successful hospitality & leisure consulting business.<br />

I am standing for NZ First because:<br />

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

inequality and a new class of working poor finding it hard to make ends meet<br />

let alone owning a home, the deterioration of public services, and a lack of<br />

investment in infrastructure to keep pace with unfettered population growth.<br />

•I was also appalled by National’s obsession with a low wage workforce<br />

instead of training young people - putting profit before people and the<br />

environment, their lack of compassion towards the elderly and other vulnerable<br />

groups, and their relentless sales of land, state houses, and primary businesses<br />

to foreign interests.<br />

My Priorities:<br />

•A more egalitarian, inclusive and just society in which everyone can provide<br />

for their families with well-paying jobs and affordable housing without being<br />

burdened with a lifetime of debt.<br />

•Environmental, economic and sovereign rights vigorously protected.<br />

•New Zealand as a responsible Pacific leader and protector.<br />

•Accessible and high quality health care.<br />

•Future generations able receive education and training well matched to their potential.<br />

•More government investment in infrastructure needs, research and<br />

development, and job rich sustainable industries.<br />

•Implementing the Provincial Growth Fund to boost regional economies.<br />

•Strong border security with all returnees paying their fair share.<br />

•An immigration policy strictly targeted to genuine labour and skills shortages.<br />

•Always looking after the elderly and all vulnerable groups.<br />

Odour may be stronger or<br />

weaker on different days<br />

•From page 1<br />

“It won’t make it easy to<br />

sell the house. I’m just feeling<br />

resigned.”<br />

She said the smell was<br />

not as bad this month as<br />

it was in previous months,<br />

but “having said that, it’s<br />

still been pretty horrendous.”<br />

While the trials were<br />

under way the plan outlined<br />

that the odour may<br />

be stronger or weaker on<br />

different days.<br />

Operational changes at<br />

refuse and recycling facility<br />

EcoDrop, managed by<br />

EcoCentral, showed a 40<br />

per cent decline in average<br />

“odour units” detected in<br />

July compared to June.<br />

Changes included clearing<br />

odorous waste in sealed<br />

containers quickly, ensuring<br />

all waste was cleared<br />

each night, and prioritising<br />

odorous waste.<br />

However, an increase in<br />

“offensive” reported odours<br />

were identified at organics<br />

processing plant Living<br />

Earth beyond the boundary<br />

of the site.<br />

“Living Earth has been<br />

using misters for a number<br />

of years as a tool to mitigate<br />

odour from the plant. Four<br />

additional, larger misters<br />

have been brought in and<br />

are now in use,” the city<br />

council’s AMP progress<br />

report said.<br />

High-need clients in city<br />

The compost “recipe”<br />

was also adjusted to replace<br />

the odour profile of the<br />

previous blend that was<br />

causing the offensive smell.<br />

“It will take about 12<br />

weeks for all of the compost<br />

from the old blend to<br />

completely cycle through<br />

the composting process<br />

and move off-site.”<br />

Linwood ward city<br />

councillor Yani Johanson<br />

is advocating for better<br />

national air quality standards<br />

and made a personal<br />

submission to the Ministry<br />

for the Environment seeking<br />

as such.<br />

“With two out of the<br />

three months up for significant<br />

reduction in odour<br />

complaints, the problem<br />

is growing which is completely<br />

unacceptable to<br />

the local community. This<br />

highlights clearly that the<br />

Resource Management Act<br />

is inadequate to deal with<br />

these activities.<br />

“There is no way what is<br />

• From page 1<br />

Said Community Law<br />

Canterbury board chairman<br />

Jeremy Finn: “We’re<br />

delighted to get it in recognition<br />

of the huge, unmet<br />

demand that will continue<br />

to increase post-Covid-19.<br />

“But we also know that<br />

demand is at full capacity<br />

now, so we would expect<br />

the funding will allow us<br />

to increase our staffing<br />

and retain experienced<br />

lawyers.”<br />

He said the majority of<br />

issues clients have faced<br />

recently involved employment,<br />

changing work conditions,<br />

family law matters,<br />

immigration, finances and<br />

tenancy issues.<br />

The extra funding comes<br />

at a time when Community<br />

Law Centres around<br />

the country have been<br />

experiencing a significant<br />

decline in donations because<br />

of Covid-19.<br />

The Canterbury facility<br />

will receive their share of<br />

about $1<strong>20</strong>,000 a year for<br />

the next few years.<br />

The extra funding was<br />

important to retain and<br />

increase staff levels to allow<br />

for higher volumes of<br />

casework work to be completed,<br />

and for part-time<br />

staff to move into full-time<br />

roles.<br />

This was especially the<br />

case in Canterbury.<br />

“Our staff have great<br />

experience and have been<br />

working hard to support<br />

high-need clients,” he said.<br />

“Christchurch clients<br />

have high needs, especially<br />

in the aftermath of the<br />

earthquakes, mosque attack<br />

and now Covid-19.”<br />

CLC provide legal help<br />

and advice to those who<br />

are unable to pay for a private<br />

lawyer or have limited<br />

access to legal aid, which<br />

can cost much as $300 to<br />

$400 an hour.<br />

Said Sue Moroney, Community<br />

Law Centres o<br />

Aoteaora chief executive:<br />

“Increased funding will<br />

help community law centres<br />

to help the increasing<br />

Earth’s<br />

compost<br />

allowable in any community<br />

in New Zealand.”<br />

A screening machine,<br />

which processes materials<br />

twice to ensure it is<br />

fully broken down, will<br />

be installed next month<br />

at Living Earth to further<br />

mitigate the worsening<br />

stench.<br />

Said ECan councillor<br />

Nicole Marshall: “This<br />

three-month compliance<br />

period gives CCC time to<br />

be good neighbours, while<br />

enabling ECan to collect<br />

further data from the site<br />

so we can fulfil our duties<br />

as a regulator.<br />

“It’s important we resolve<br />

the issue for Bromley<br />

without simply moving it<br />

somewhere else.”<br />

The trial finishes by<br />

the end of <strong>August</strong>, and if<br />

proven unsuccessful, the<br />

city council will consider<br />

longer-term options with<br />

an outcome by the end of<br />

November this year.<br />

response. It will help<br />

us to support people to<br />

protect the most important<br />

building blocks in their<br />

lives – their families, their<br />

jobs, their homes.<br />

“We expect further<br />

waves of demand to hit for<br />

our services for months<br />

and years to come, with<br />

demand also growing for<br />

legal support on debt and<br />

finance issues.”<br />

Each year, CLCs complete<br />

about 50,000 cases<br />

and provide law-related<br />

education to about 25,000<br />

people.<br />

The Ministry of<br />

Justice forecasts showed<br />

demanded was expected<br />

to spike in the next few<br />

years, and the funding will<br />

support the delivery of<br />

about 15,000 extra cases.

A myriad of groups<br />

community moving.<br />

Reporter Bea<br />

Gooding speaks<br />

to the Graeme<br />

Dingle Foundation<br />

Canterbury manager<br />

Chris Davis about<br />

how its programmes<br />

help children build<br />

resilience and<br />

important life skills<br />

Could you tell me a bit<br />

about the Graeme Dingle<br />

Foundation?<br />

Graeme Dingle Foundation<br />

Canterbury has been<br />

supporting young people<br />

in our community through<br />

the delivery of positive child<br />

and youth development<br />

programmes since <strong>20</strong>02. We<br />

work with communities,<br />

predominantly in areas<br />

with high levels of social<br />

deprivation, to provide lifechanging<br />

opportunities for<br />

young people. To date, we have<br />

delivered our programmes to<br />

33,042 young people across<br />

Canterbury.<br />

Our vision is to empower<br />

our young people by providing<br />

them with the tools to<br />

overcome any obstacles that<br />

may come their way. Our<br />

programmes are currently<br />

benefitting over 3700 young<br />

people every week in 22<br />

schools across Canterbury<br />

of which 2592 students are<br />

in Christchurch specifically.<br />

These programmes build<br />

lifelong skills, positive<br />

relationships and qualities<br />

such as integrity, respect and<br />

resilience that will last the<br />

students a lifetime.<br />

What kind of programmes<br />

are available?<br />

Graeme Dingle Foundation<br />

Canterbury runs three<br />

programmes, Kiwi Can, Stars<br />

and Project K. Kiwi Can is the<br />

primary school programme.<br />

The students attend a Kiwi<br />

Can session each week and<br />

learn core values and life skills<br />

through games and activities.<br />

Stars is a year 9 peer mentoring<br />

programme. Year 12 and year<br />

13 students are trained to<br />

run mentoring classes once a<br />

week for year 9s. The students<br />

learn about bullying, social<br />

media, positive relationships,<br />

teamwork and respecting each<br />

other. Project K is a 21-day<br />

wilderness expedition for year<br />

10 students. The students<br />

are taken <strong>20</strong>0km away from<br />

school into the Southern Alps<br />

and then hike, camp and<br />

cycle their way back to school.<br />

Project K is a journey of selfdiscovery.<br />

EMPOWERING YOUNG: Chris Davis of the Graeme Dingle Foundation is providing<br />

children with tools to overcome obstacles.<br />

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

I understand the<br />

programme has experienced<br />

an increased demand<br />

recently. Why has this been<br />

the case?<br />

The last few years have<br />

been very difficult for young<br />

people in Christchurch, more<br />

so than in other parts of<br />

Aotearoa. The psychosocial<br />

impacts of the earthquakes<br />

are still lingering, with<br />

parts of East Christchurch<br />

remaining uninhabitable due<br />

to the earthquake-ravaged<br />

“red zone.” More recently,<br />

these same young people have<br />

had to deal with the horror<br />

forced upon them by an act<br />

of terrorism, right on their<br />

doorstep. Now they are faced<br />

with Covid-19, with the “new<br />

normal” that this brings<br />

and with likely job losses<br />

impacting their home lives –<br />

the mental health and<br />

well-being of these families<br />

may be negatively impacted,<br />

adversely affecting many<br />

young people across these<br />

communities.<br />

Census <strong>20</strong>18 statistics across<br />

the communities we work in<br />

a paint a sobering picture,<br />

with nearly a quarter of all<br />

school leavers not gaining<br />

qualifications and a NEET<br />

rate (Not in Employment,<br />

Education and/or Training) of<br />

above 15 per cent.<br />

What kind of issues have<br />

been impacting school<br />

children recently? And<br />

how has the programme<br />

helped them overcome these<br />

barriers?<br />

School principals ask<br />

for the Graeme Dingle<br />

Foundation programmes<br />

to come into their schools<br />

because we provide positive<br />

youth development that<br />

complements and extends the<br />

positive behaviour for learning<br />

work that schools are already<br />

doing for their students.<br />

“Many of [our] students<br />

lack the privilege of being<br />

immersed in and surrounded<br />

by positive role models in their<br />

life. The Kiwi Can programme<br />

has provided the opportunity<br />

for our kids to learn, practice<br />

and demonstrate the<br />

implementation of values into<br />

their everyday actions and<br />

behaviours. I can confidentially<br />

say that the programme will<br />

undoubtedly have long term<br />

benefits for our students and<br />

their ability to positively<br />

contribute to our community.”<br />

– Janeane Reid, principal of<br />

Te Waka Unua School.<br />

What are the common<br />

barriers that hold children<br />

back from reaching their full<br />

potential in life?<br />

It is always so important<br />

to remember that not all<br />

childhoods are created equal.<br />

Some kids have a tough<br />

start and it can hold them<br />

back. Big factors are poverty,<br />

family instability with lots of<br />

moving house and changing<br />

schools, lack of good housing<br />

and hunger. Our goal as an<br />

organisation is to help those<br />

kids to know that, no matter<br />

what their start is in life, what<br />

they have inside is strong<br />

enough to overcome any<br />

obstacle.<br />

Why is an organisation<br />

like this important for<br />

Canterbury kids?<br />

I think a school principal<br />

can answer this better than I<br />

can:<br />

“Kiwi Can has a positive<br />

impact on the students at<br />

Bamford School. Through<br />

the programme, senior<br />

students have become<br />

more confident and have<br />

developed the ability to take<br />

risks in front of their peers<br />

without being embarrassed.<br />

Furthermore, they have<br />

learnt valuable lessons about<br />

resilience, honesty, integrity<br />

and leadership through fun<br />

and engaging activities,” –<br />

Shona Hewlett, principal of<br />

Ngutuawa School.<br />

What advice would you<br />

give parents and educators<br />

to instil positivity, resilience<br />

and confidence in school<br />

kids, and why?<br />

The teachers and principals<br />

we meet and work with<br />

are fantastic and are all<br />

working really hard on<br />

behalf of Canterbury’s youth.<br />

Graeme Dingle Foundation<br />

Canterbury’s role is to provide<br />

a set time each week where<br />

the students can really focus<br />

on learning about respect,<br />

positive relationships,<br />

resilience and integrity. These<br />

positive values are of course<br />

also being learned about<br />

during regular class time and<br />

at home.<br />

Our foundation’s role is<br />

to focus strongly on these<br />

topics in a whole-class format<br />

every week. The students get<br />

a chance to play games that<br />

model positive behaviours<br />

and to carefully consider<br />

and discuss their values and<br />

actions.<br />

Our classes are a chance to<br />

talk about values regularly<br />

with young people and our<br />

school leaders model good<br />

values and behaviours. Kids<br />

become what they see and<br />

hear.<br />

Students part of planting project<br />

HIGH SCHOOL students across<br />

the city have planted thousands<br />

of native trees in part of New<br />

Brighton’s red zone this year and<br />

plan to add another 10,000 over<br />

the next four years.<br />

An additional planting day has<br />

been planned for the end of the<br />

month, where the students will<br />

add a further 1100 native trees<br />

and plants at Chimera Cres.<br />

The students, who will be<br />

joined with members from<br />

the local community, are from<br />

Shirley Boys’ High, Avonside<br />

Girls’ High, Christchurch Girls’<br />

High, Linwood College, Rawhiti<br />

School, Heaton Intermediate,<br />

Christ’s College, St Margaret’s<br />

College, Rangi Ruru Girls’<br />

School, St Andrew’s College and<br />

Cathedral Grammar.<br />

Head of physics at Christ’s<br />

College David Newton is responsible<br />

for leading the ambitious<br />

project which began last year.<br />

“Over the next four years we’re<br />

going to complete the current<br />

area we’re working on, plant the<br />

QE II Adventure Nature Trail<br />

and start another large block<br />

which is currently under negotiation<br />

with the Christchurch<br />

City Council,” he said.<br />

The planting was an opportunity<br />

for the students to practically<br />

realise the “positive impact”<br />

they can have on the community,<br />

and the planet, by contributing<br />

their part.<br />

“Our work will grow a forest<br />

that will be a lasting memorial<br />

for their efforts,” he said.<br />

“It demonstrates the power<br />

ordinary people have to<br />

change our city, country and<br />

the planet by helping mitigate<br />

climate change and increasing<br />

biodiversity.”<br />

Twenty different species of<br />

native trees and grasses will be<br />

planted, including pittosporum,<br />

ake ake, totara, flax, carex secta,<br />

and lophomyrtus.<br />

Said Newton: “We’ve selected<br />

these plants to provide both<br />

habitat and food for native birds<br />

and lizards. We want to see more<br />

native birds in Christchurch,<br />

and this is a huge opportunity to<br />

plant a forest that runs as a green<br />

spine through the city.<br />

“The best thing you can do<br />

to encourage native birdlife<br />

back to the city is to plant<br />

trees that become a year-round<br />

supply of bird food.”<br />

DIGGING DEEP:<br />

Led by Christ’s<br />

College head of<br />

David Newton,<br />

students<br />

from high<br />

schools across<br />

helped plant<br />

thousands of<br />

native trees in<br />

New Brighton’s<br />

red zone.<br />

Newton welcomes help from<br />

the community if they have an<br />

hour or two to spare.<br />

He urges people to bring their<br />

own spades, but that tools were<br />

available for use if needed.<br />

The replanting work is being<br />

undertaken in conjunction with<br />

Ihutai Trust,<br />

a non-profit<br />

organisation formed in <strong>20</strong>02 to<br />

protect one of New Zealand’s<br />

most important coastal wetlands.<br />

Each week she introduces a<br />

new bird found in the estuary.<br />

Her column aims to raise the<br />

understanding of the values and<br />

uniqueness of the area.<br />

THE LITTLE Cormorant/<br />

Kawau paka is one of several<br />

cormorant species found<br />

around the estuary and lower<br />

reaches of our rivers.<br />

Who doesn’t enjoy watching<br />

these birds sitting along the<br />

estuary, or perched in trees<br />

along river banks with their<br />

wings spread out? But why do<br />

they do this?<br />

Cormorants dive under<br />

water to catch their prey but<br />

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY<br />

Little cormorant is a masterful fish hunter<br />

unlike non-diving birds their<br />

feathers are not as waterproof<br />

which allows them to dive in<br />

the first place.<br />

It does mean, however, that<br />

they need to ‘spread their<br />

wings and tail feathers” to dry<br />

out after each meal, or they<br />

would lose their body temperature.<br />

It’s amazing how nature<br />

provides for all the different<br />

needs of different birds.<br />

The little cormorants have<br />

been observed eating up to 30<br />

small eels and fish each day. It<br />

must be a tough life having to<br />

fish, then dry out that many<br />

times a day.<br />

How can we help the<br />

cormorant numbers to thrive?<br />

Keep dogs on the lead when<br />

walking along riverbanks and<br />

the estuary edge.<br />

Dogs are a huge threat to<br />

birds needing to nest, rest and<br />

feed in peace.<br />

FOCUS ON HEALTH<br />

Centuries old folk remedy<br />

supports good health!<br />

A fermented liquid health tonic offers<br />

an array of powerful health benefits. It<br />

is none other than the popular apple<br />

cider vinegar or ACV. Since the time of<br />

Hippocrates – the “Father of Medicine”<br />

– ACV has been renowned for its<br />

curative properties.<br />

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS and<br />

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis<br />

reports how he found that Vermonters<br />

who regularly consumed ACV and<br />

Honey had excellent health with many<br />

putting in a vigorous day’s work on the<br />

farm even when well into their eighties.<br />

He also noted the effects of ACV and H<br />

on arthritis to be remarkable with many<br />

patients reporting almost total relief<br />

after taking a course of the mixture.<br />

Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and<br />

potassium in cider vinegar counteracted<br />

calcium deposits and helped the body<br />

control calcium use. He also noted that<br />

Vermonters who consumed ACV and H<br />

around meal time had excellent blood<br />

pressure and circulation. The reason he<br />

found was that protein foods thickened<br />

the blood and vinegar thinned it. As<br />

the blood thickens it cannot pass as<br />

easily and quickly through the blood<br />

vessels and capillaries. This poor blood<br />

flow would reduce cellular health by<br />

limiting nutrients to the cells as well<br />

as waste elimination from the cells. To<br />

prevent cell damage the body naturally<br />

increases blood pressure but this puts<br />

more stress on the blood vessels, organs<br />

and heart. Having ACV and H with<br />

meals will help prevent protein raising<br />

the blood pressure. It also contributes to<br />

a feeling of greater well-being because<br />

the thinner blood circulates quickly and<br />

more easily through the blood vessels.<br />

Dr. Jarvis found regular consumption of<br />

CV and H to be an excellent health tonic<br />

with numerous health attributes.<br />

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains<br />

all the goodness of the apple in a<br />

form that is readily accepted by the<br />

body. Good health starts with good<br />

digestion and assimilation of nutrients.<br />

ACV taken before food will stimulate<br />

and promote healthy digestion and<br />

assimilation of vital nutrients for good<br />

health. A well-functioning digestive<br />

system helps prevent disease by<br />

neutralising any toxic substances that<br />

enter the body.<br />

It is important to note not all ACV<br />

is produced in the traditional way and<br />

results are likely to prove disappointing<br />

with these other vinegars.<br />

Marshall’s Premium ACV and ACV<br />

with <strong>20</strong>% Manuka Honey is produced<br />

in Canterbury from organic whole<br />

apples in the traditional way. It is double<br />

strength so you can use less.<br />

Further information is available<br />

Apple Cider VinegAr<br />

Powerful Natural<br />

Health Tonic<br />

ACV is a highly nutritious health tonic with all the goodness of<br />

apples (one of our most health-giving fruits) in a form that is readily<br />

accepted by the body. It promotes healthy digestion, assimilation of<br />

nutrients & elimination of wastes. It is detoxifying, purifying as well as<br />

supporting the function of vital organs like the kidneys, bladder, liver<br />

& heart. It helps neutralise toxic substances & harmful bacteria in<br />

food. A time-honoured natural remedy to improve health & longevity.<br />

Highly recommended as a daily health tonic for everyone!<br />

OPTIMISTIC: Jolt Dance founder Lyn Cotton and dancer Carl Te Tone Huia<br />

were meant to perform their original works in London this year, but it was<br />

postponed due to Covid-19.<br />

Challenging disability<br />

through creative arts<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

CANTABRIANS will soon<br />

be treated to a performance<br />

which challenges<br />

perspectives about dance<br />

and disability in the<br />

creative arts industry.<br />

Representatives from Jolt<br />

Dance company were due<br />

to showcase their work at<br />

performance art theatre<br />

Lyric Hammersmith in<br />

London during May but<br />

it was cancelled due to<br />

Covid-19.<br />

Jolt founder Lyn Cotton<br />

is feeling optimistic in spite<br />

of the growing uncertainty<br />

in the coming months.<br />

“We’re looking at it<br />

positively and view it as<br />

a postponement, we still<br />

want to show London what<br />

New Zealand is capable<br />

of,” she said.<br />

“We’re not angry about<br />

it, this is a time of patience<br />

and reflection and it’s<br />

given us an opportunity to<br />

look at the work again in<br />

more depth.”<br />

Including Cotton, Jolt<br />

dancers and tutors Carl<br />

Huia, Aleasha Seaward,<br />

Rochelle Waters and Renee<br />

Ryan were meant to spend<br />

a week in London to take<br />

part in Amici Dance<br />

Theatre Company’s 40thanniversary<br />

celebrations<br />

and raised $10,000 to do so.<br />

Amici is also an inclusive<br />

dance company and<br />

invited the team to present<br />

two original works, discuss<br />

their achievements and<br />

host teaching sessions.<br />

They Call Me Sam is a<br />

short film that chronicled<br />

life with down syndrome<br />

and challenges attitudes<br />

about having a disability.<br />

Takiwatanga is a performance<br />

which is shaped<br />

by Huia’s Māori culture<br />

INCLUSIVITY: Georgia Scarsbrook, Hunter<br />

McLintock, Brooke Joyce and Shanna Charles<br />

are on a mission to break barriers within the<br />

creative arts industry through dance.<br />

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

and his lived experience of<br />

autism.<br />

The word “takiwatanga”<br />

is used to describe autism<br />

and means “in his or her<br />

own time and space.”<br />

Cotton met Amici<br />

founder Wolfgang Strange<br />

in 1995, and after spending<br />

a few years under his wing,<br />

she was inspired to open<br />

her own dance studio with<br />

a similar concept of breaking<br />

barriers within the<br />

disability community.<br />

“Wolfgang was my<br />

teacher for three years, and<br />

when I came back to NZ I<br />

set up my own Jolt classes<br />

and it grew from there,”<br />

she said.<br />

“We take what the dancers<br />

give us which shapes<br />

our work - it’s not just<br />

about participation, it’s<br />

about excellence and for<br />

people with disabilities to<br />

have their voices heard.”<br />

Not only do they offer<br />

dance classes, teaching and<br />

choreography training was<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

also available which leads<br />

to industry level pathways<br />

through performance and<br />

leadership.<br />

Jolt’s “Move” programme<br />

is the country’s only teacher<br />

training programme for<br />

people with disabilities,<br />

taking their work into<br />

mainstream schools to<br />

teach non-disabled children.<br />

Said Cotton: “All peer<br />

pressure starts to drop<br />

away when they come together<br />

and dance. It’s okay<br />

to be different.<br />

“The bar was set low<br />

for what people with disabilities<br />

can achieve, and<br />

now they’re playing catch<br />

up because they’ve been<br />

denied that opportunity<br />

for so long.”<br />

Jolt Dance celebrates<br />

their <strong>20</strong>th anniversary next<br />

year and has since grown<br />

to more than 150 dancers.<br />

They will plan to showcase<br />

their original works in<br />

Christchurch in October.

Ground moisture barrier<br />

under low sub-floor<br />

Now with the colder and wetter weather on<br />

its way, home owners are focusing on ways<br />

to make their homes comfortable, warm<br />

and healthy for their families throughout<br />

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects<br />

many of our older properties which suffer<br />

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.<br />

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many<br />

people have relocated to homes that suffer<br />

from rising damp which can be associated<br />

with health problems. Independent tests have<br />

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise<br />

from the ground and enter a house every day,<br />

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and<br />

musty smells. Moulds can produce various<br />

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and<br />

very young are especially vulnerable.<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a<br />

locally owned and operated firm. The team<br />

understands the problems caused by rising<br />

damp and are there to help. They will come<br />

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,<br />

flowable foam concrete under your timber<br />

floored home.<br />

While insulation is important, it has been<br />

recognised that it is dampness that is the real<br />

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes<br />

Standards introduced by the government<br />

effective from the 1st July <strong>20</strong>19 now has<br />

a requirement to install ground moisture<br />

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight<br />

moisture in the home.<br />

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a<br />

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under<br />

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed<br />

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over<br />

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation<br />

on the underside of a timber floor can occur<br />

where the floor is suspended over damp<br />

ground and the inside air temperature falls<br />

close to the crawl space air temperature.<br />

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture<br />

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding<br />

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can<br />

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.<br />

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most<br />

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier<br />

under the suspended wooden floor of your<br />

home, even when there is no crawl space.<br />

ATTACK RISING DAMP<br />

Zone Control for your<br />

ducted heat pump<br />

Ducted heat pumps are a highly efficient<br />

way to heat (or cool) your home. The<br />

air from the heat pump is ducted to<br />

several rooms or zones in your house.<br />

Using a zone control system makes your<br />

ducted heat pump even more efficient, by<br />

specifying the amount of heat required<br />

in each area, so not wasting energy to<br />

overheat or overcool any room.<br />

The AirTouch4 zone control system<br />

from Smooth-Air takes ducted heat pump<br />

air zoning to a whole new level of comfort<br />

and energy efficiency.<br />

AirTouch4 - The Ultimate Zone<br />

Control<br />

Have total control of your comfort zone:<br />

AirTouch4 lets everyone enjoy a different<br />

level of conditioned air in the room they<br />

are in.<br />

Save money on the power<br />

bill, without compromising on<br />

comfort, by only running the<br />

heating or cooling where you<br />

need it with Smart Zoning.<br />

Plus with runtime tracking,<br />

energy and airflow management<br />

technology, you can enjoy greater<br />

efficiency and savings from your<br />

family’s ducted heat pump.<br />

60 %<br />

The AirTouch4 can also<br />

connect to Google Home and<br />

Amazon Alexa.<br />

Not every home is designed<br />

equal. Not every room is either.<br />

Adapt your home to<br />

YOUR IDEA<br />

OF COMFORT<br />

Temperatures can often fluctuate from<br />

one room to the next because of sunlight,<br />

room activity or other factors.<br />

With AirTouch4’s Individual<br />

Temperature Control Technology (ITC),<br />

the AirTouch monitors temperatures<br />

and smartly adjusts airflow as needed<br />

around your home with the aid of multiple<br />

wireless temperature sensors instead of a<br />

single sensor in one location. When some<br />

rooms get too hot or cold, the AirTouch<br />

will adjust airflow to maintain your desired<br />

temperature, without wasting conditioned<br />

air on rooms already comfortable.<br />
