Proving age is no barrier

to keeping fit and mobile

• By Samantha Mythen

LIN CLARK, an 81-year-old

energetic gym-goer believes

age is no excuse for not making

your fitness and mobility a

priority.

Clark makes up a trio of

inspiring active ladies attending

the Female Federation gym in

Ferrymead who all share their

birthdays this month.

Isabel Mundy and Ngaire

Onekawa are both set to turn

80-years-old this month, on

February 7 and 18 respectively.

Clark’s 82nd birthday is on February

15.

All three powerhouse ladies

regularly attend the gym, taking

part in Pilates and balance

classes, as well as working on

their own cardio and weights

routines.

They are choosing to stay

fit and healthy, defying the

stereotype that aging holds you

back from achieving an active

lifestyle.

Decked out with a Crusaders

tattoo and a Rugby World Cup

tattoo on each wrist, Onekawa is

a keen sportswoman.

She has always been active.

Interest in Mexican restaurant rises

• By Bea Gooding

EXCITEMENT IS building in

Linwood as residents anticipate

the opening of the city’s very first

Taco Bell restaurant in the area.

Construction of the $1.3m

Mexican-inspired fast food restaurant

at the Eastgate Mall site

started last month and is set to

open later this year.

Linwood resident Simon Fisher

was walking to Subway with his

son Shane when he shared his

excitement for the suburb’s newest

addition.

He could not wait to start

tucking into their fresh tacos,

salads and desserts.

“It’s great, I’ve always wanted a

Taco Bell in Christchurch. I used

to live in Australia and we had

lots of Taco Bells.”

New Brighton resident Linda

Rowlinson, who was waiting for

a bus outside Eastgate, regularly

visits the area. She likes Mexican

food, so having a new option in

Linwood was something to look

forward to.

“I think it’s great. I’m up here

shopping all the time; I live in

New Brighton and there’s nothing

there so we’ve got to come up

here,” she said.

She believes the area has been

targeted for these types of outlets

but was not concerned because

“people should have a variety.”

Jacob Chatterton, of Linwood,

is looking forward to the prospect

of getting a job at the restaurant

more than eating

its food.

“I’ve never had Taco

Bell. But if I don’t have a

job by then, I’ll definitely

apply to work there.

“I think everyone

around here will like it

Jacob

Chatterton

more, and it means less

people at McDonald’s

and KFC. The only thing

healthy for a takeaway here is the

Subway.”

But its proximity to other outlets

has caused some concern.

It joins a group of restaurants

within 200m of Linwood Avenue

School, including KFC, McDonald’s,

Burger King and

Domino’s pizza, with

other options inside

Eastgate Mall.

Said principal Gretchen

Smith: “For us as a

school, we have constant

temptation at the gate,

fuelled by the power

of the brand, and the

aroma of fast food wafting

over the school on a daily

basis, which can be appetising or

nauseating.”

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What’s

your view on another fast

food outlet in the area?

Email bea.gooding@

starmedia.kiwi

This comes after a study published

last week in the Preventive

Medicine journal by Canterbury

University revealed a correlation

between poor mental health

and people living in unhealthy

environments.

People experiencing recent

mental distress or received a diagnosis

had a greater likelihood

of living near fast food or alcohol

outlets, with less access to parks

and waterways, the study found.

The findings highlighted a

need for local councils and governments

to create environments

that support healthy lifestyles,

lowering the risk of mental illness

and distress.

Smith said the school was not

consulted on the matter seeing as

the area is a commercial zone.

Starting this year, the school

will supply lunch every day

as part of the Ministry of

Education’s “lunch in school”

programme, to help pupils meet

their nutritional needs.

“The big brands that target this

area will, of course, say that they

are just meeting the demands of

the local community and that

they offer healthy alternatives

such as salad and water, or that

they give back to the community.”

It is not the first time concerns

regarding the proliferation of fast

food restaurants in Linwood has

been raised.

In 2016, a petition was presented

to the city council to ban fast

food restaurants within 800m of

schools.

But residents have yet to see

action as the city council said

it was not able to change the

district plan to regulate fast food

until this year.

Saving Justice Truth, Transparency, and Trust

by James Comey

This will not come as a surprise to anyone, including even to the President’s most

ardent defenders: Donald Trump lied to me from the start.

Saving Justice is James Comey’s searing memoir and guide to reclaiming truth in

the institutions of justice, which have been so badly damaged under Trump. Trump

has managed to convince millions of Americas that our federal justice system

doesn’t operate with integrity and that its leaders routinely fail to tell the truth. That

is a dangerous situation that must be addressed and corrected.

James Comey has worked in government in Republican and Democratic

administrations - as a line federal prosecutor, a US Attorney, Justice Dept official,

and Director of the FBI - and he shares stories from his career that illuminate

the indispensable core values of America’s justice institutions and why we must

overcome and repair the corrosive damage Trump and his underlings have done

with deception, alternative facts, dishonesty, political payback, and amorality.

Oscar Garden A Tale of One Man’s Love of Flying

by dr Annamaria Garden

One day in 1930, a man walked into a department store in London and bought

an aeroplane. Having just learned to fly, Oscar Garden dreamed of flying to

Australia. In his newly purchased aeroplane, he did just that. This adventure

and myriad of others this risk-taker embarked on are recounted in this book.

Oscar’s love of flying saw him joy riding to many places in the world, including

New Zealand, South Africa, and up through Africa to Palestine. While based

in London, he joined British Airways and Imperial Airways flying flying boats

across the Empire. Finally, he came to rest in Auckland, New Zealand, after

delivering the Awarua, the second of New Zealand’s flying boats, used during

World War II for communication and travel, reducing New Zealand’s isolation.

He became Chief Pilot of TEAL, the New Zealand airline, for half of the war

years and beyond, and eventually resigned due to serious disagreement over

management and political agendas. This biography describes Oscar Garden’s

fascinating journey through these episodes.

Kremlin Winter

russia and the Second Coming of Vladimir Putin

by robert Service

Vladimir Putin has dominated Russian politics since Boris Yeltsin relinquished the

presidency in his favour in May 2000. He served two terms as president, before

himself relinquishing the post to his prime minister, Dimitri Medvedev, only to return

to presidential power for a third time in 2012. Putin’s rule, whether as president or

prime minister, has been marked by a steady increase in domestic repression and

international assertiveness. Despite this, there have been signs of liberal growth and

Putin - and Russia - now faces a far from certain future. Robert Service, acclaimed

biographer of Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky and one of our finest historians of modern

Russia, brings his deep understanding of that country to bear on the man who leads

it. He reveals a premier who cannot take his supremacy for granted, yet is determined

to impose his will not only on his closest associates but on society at large. It is a

riveting insight into power politics as Russia faces a blizzard of difficulties both at

home and abroad.

Sir Bob Charles - The Biography

Limited edition by Geoff Saunders

There are only 1963 copies of the Limited Edition available for sale. They

are individually numbered and signed by Sir Bob Charles, offering readers a

unique opportunity to own a piece of New Zealand’s golfing history. 1963 is

significant, marking the year Sir Bob Charles became the first New Zealander to

win a golfing major. This is the first comprehensive biography of Sir Bob Charles.

He embarked upon a career that no New Zealander had chosen before - that

of a full-time touring professional golfer. He competed in the “golden age” of

professional golf in the 1960s and 1970s, and acquired the title of the “best

putter in the world”. On the Senior PGA Tour from 1986 he became the man to

beat. With his 1999 knighthood and his elevation to the Order of New Zealand

in 2011 he has been honoured not only for his success as a golfer but also for

the way he has lived his life. The combination of the narrative with over 160

photographs makes Sir Bob Charles - The Biography, a stunning in-depth study

of the life and times of this great New Zealand sportsman.

Battle of Brothers

William, Harry and the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult

by robert Lacey

The world has watched Prince William and Prince Harry since they were born. Raised

by Princess Diana to be the closest of brothers, how have the boy princes grown into

very different, now distanced men? From royal expert and bestselling author Robert

Lacey, this book is an unparalleled insider account of tumult and secrecy revealing

the untold details of William and Harry’s early closeness then estrangement. It asks

what happens when two sons are raised for vastly different futures. Were the seeds

of damage sowed as Prince Charles and Diana’s marriage painfully unraveled for

all the world to see? What choices has Queen Elizabeth II made in marshalling her

feuding heirs? What parts have Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle played in helping

their husbands to choose their differing paths? And what is the real, unvarnished

story behind Harry and Meghan’s dramatic departure? In the most intimate vision

yet of life behind closed doors, with the family’s highs, lows and hardest decisions

all laid out, this is a journey into royal life as never offered before.

‘It’s a relief to find you’re still strong’

• From page 1

The mother of three children,

seven grandchildren and 12

great-grandchildren, played

netball until she was 42. She

even competed against her own

daughters.

Clark has always found her

energy outdoors in nature; a keen

hiker, horse rider and gardener.

She owns a remote cabin in

Lewis Pass, and although is not

climbing the nearby mountain

heights, she still loves to wander

through the beech trees.

Mundy, who lives in Horotane

Valley, used to work in her

family’s fruit and tomato

business which kept her strong

and fit. When she finished up

working, she decided to head to

the gym. She’s been attending

three times a week for the past

four years.

Onekawa, of Aranui, has kept

up consistent gym practice for

more than 12 years. She now

attends Female Federation five

times a week.

Onekawa can do multiple

push-ups, straight-backed

with her knees up. She also said

she can do side plank rotations

and dips, and has completed

200m within 15 minutes on the

ski erg.

Clark knows the importance of

rest days. She has been attending

the gym on and off since 1998,

CAMARADERIE: Lin Clark, Isabel Mundy and Ngaire Onekawa all attend the gym multiple

times a week, incorporating cardio, strength training, Pilates and balance exercises into

their practice.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

and in spite of a hip replacement

taking her out of the game for

a while, she is building up her

practice one again. Clark enjoys

chin-ups, the chest press and leg

press.

“It’s a relief to find you’re still

strong,” she said.

When answering why they

attended the gym, Onekawa

promptly stood up from her

chair. “This is why,” she said.

Mundy agreed: “To keep my

core strong!”

Clark said: “As you get older,

the physical stuff becomes

terribly important and you

become more aware of your body

and how it works.”

“Coming to the gym is a

positive step to being a strong

and complete person.”

For Clark, getting to the gym

is also important for the mental

benefits. Her life passions have

been education and theatre;

in 2019, she was awarded the

prestigious Drama New Zealand

President’s Award, given to

someone who has significantly

contributed to the drama space

over their lifetime.

They all share the same goal:

To keep going.

There is strong camaraderie

between the three women,

and they love being part of

the community at Female

Federation.

Onekawa said she gets coffee

twice a week with her new found

gym friends.

“It’s a sisterhood here,” said

Clark.

Jill Kennedy, their personal

trainer is 64-years-old. She

only has glowing reviews of

the fitness levels of the three

women.

“I cannot wait til I retire to

be able to work out with them

all.”

Clark said: “We are lucky

enough to be able to work out,

and so we choose to make the

most of this and continue to stay

fit.”

Red zone fences come down

KILOMETRES OF fencing

inside the former residential

red zones are being removed to

make the areas more accessible

to the public and more efficient

to maintain.

City council residential red

zone manager Brenden Winder

said most of the existing fences

inside the regeneration areas

were no longer required.

The areas include the Ōtākaro

Avon River Corridor, Southshore,

South New Brighton and

Brooklands.

Removing the fences will

make the land more inviting

for visitors and improve the city

council’s efficiency in maintaining

the areas, said Winder.

“The majority of these fences

were put up to improve public

safety as the land was cleared of

buildings following the earthquakes,”

he said.

“With those buildings now

gone, the internal fences are no

longer required and we want to

minimise obstruction for people

wishing to use the area.

“We’ll look at ways to repurpose

the posts, poles and wire

elsewhere in the other regeneration

areas.”

Perimeter fencing along

roads that pass through the

regeneration areas will remain

in place to provide security and

meet the community’s safety

expectations.

Fences around land containing

existing lease holdings will

also remain in place.

The city council has established

a residential red zone

parks’ team. Maintenance officers

and rangers will maintain

and look after the city’s regeneration

areas.

On July 1 last year the ownership

of the Brooklands and

Southshore-South New Brighton

regeneration areas transferred

from Land Information New

Zealand to the city council.

The Port Hills regeneration

areas will transfer to the city

council ownership in May.

Ownership of the Ōtākaro

Avon River Corridor land

will gradually transfer from

the Crown to the city council

as LINZ completes title

reconfiguration and surveying

work of 29 land parcels.

That work is already under

way.

Exhibition of dune plants

at New Brighton Library

BRIAR COOK is showcasing her

native dune plants exhibition at the

New Brighton Library this month.

The exhibition holds a special

place for New Brighton artist – it is

a dedication to her father, eminent

horticulturalist, Alleyne Cook, who

died in October 2019.

Cook grew up surrounded by

plants and as a child, followed her

father around the garden asking

him every question she could think

of.

Although she has worked as an

artist for about 30 years, often with

plant material, she never imagined

they would be shared with others.

“My first impulse was to simply

see more clearly the plants I was

drawing. Once I started looking

closely at our beautiful native

plants, I wanted to learn more, and

then I wanted to share what I have

learned with everyone,” Cook said.

“I am proud of this project, which

was created with funding from the

creative communities scheme and

this resource is for any age, who is

interested in the native plants who

call our sand dunes home.

“In my opinion, any definition

of the New Brighton community

needs to include the plants that

make our lives here possible. I

hope this resource will encourage

everyone living close to the sea to

take a closer look at these beautiful

community members.”

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Customers pleased with honest,

reliable vehicle servicing

Having your vehicle regularly serviced is

key to getting the best out of it in terms of

fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear

on expensive parts.

Kevin, who owns and operates Parker

Automotive in Birmingham Drive,

provides full vehicle servicing to keep your

vehicle running smoothly, as well as WOFs,

batteries and tyres.

He also carries out all mechanical repairs,

including cam belt replacement, suspension

work, clutch and gearbox repairs, only

repairing what’s necessary, and without

charging the earth.

He has owned the business since 2007,

and over that time has established a loyal

customer base – people that rely on him

to give them sound advice and provide

professional care and servicing for their

vehicles.

Customers come from across the city,

Spreydon, Hillmorton, Riccarton, Halswell

and Middleton areas, and the business has

received many positive Google reviews

from customers. Below are some examples:

I have been going to Parker Automotive

for the last eight years and I cannot fault the

service. The mechanical work has been top

money I recommend Parker Automotive. –

I know it’s not always about price but

sometimes, when it comes to vehicle repairs,

you just want a perceived good deal and work

carried out by someone who seems to care.

Kevin came recommended by a friend, and

what a great recommendation. His work was

clean, efficient, fast and came in under what

I thought it was going to cost. So we took my

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

Chu, Phil Mauger, Aaron Keown

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

as to how a zero per cent rates

Plan also predicts a 50 per cent

rates increase over 10 years.

When your brand includes the top Harcourts

office out of 900 around the world in addition

to the top franchise in New Zealand for

income per sales consultant, it’s clear that

you’ve got an extraordinary team.

So for these consultants to earn the position of one of the top ten real estate sales

consultants at Harcourts gold is truly a remarkable achievement.

They are phenomenally good at what they do; skilled, highly trained and dedicated

to delivering exceptional results for property owners. I am extremely proud to work

with these real estate professionals.
