Safe house stickers a<br />

way to help beat crime<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

RESIDENTS ARE launching their<br />

own initiatives to tackle crime in<br />

Parklands, including the creation<br />

of Safe House Community Stickers<br />

designed to aid anyone in distress.<br />

The brainchild of concerned<br />

residents Grant Donnell and Ariana<br />

King, the initiative is a partnership<br />

with local schools and signage company,<br />

SIGNBIZ.<br />

Residents can place the distinctive<br />

yellow stickers, which read<br />

“community safe house,” on their<br />

letterboxes.<br />

They signal to any child or person<br />

who feels distressed that it is okay<br />

to knock on the front door. This<br />

enables them to seek refuge or<br />

call parents, a trusted person, or<br />

authorities.<br />

Said Donnell: “It’s more for the<br />

kids, but it’s for anyone. We had an<br />

elderly man who was wandering<br />

the street and he was delirious. He<br />

walked past so many houses and<br />

not one person gave him a hand.<br />

Upgraded community centre opens<br />

THE NORTH New Brighton<br />

Community Centre has<br />

reopened after a much-needed<br />

revamp.<br />

The centre at 93 Marine Pde<br />

has just had a two-month,<br />

$236,000 refurbishment, inside<br />

and out, after the city council<br />

identified it as a priority for<br />

maintenance.<br />

“There’s a beautiful ocean<br />

view from this facility, which has<br />

made it a popular<br />

venue for<br />

weddings, receptions<br />

and parties,<br />

and now the<br />

building itself<br />

has been beautified<br />

to match,”<br />

John Filsell<br />

said John Filsell,<br />

city council head<br />

REVAMPED: The North New Brighton Community Centre is now open to the public<br />

following a two-month closure for refurbishment.<br />

PHOTO: NEWSLINE<br />

of community support, governance<br />

and partnerships.<br />

“As well as fresh paint, partial<br />

deck and handrail replacement<br />

and new doors and signage,<br />

we’ve also fitted out the inside,”<br />

Filsell said.<br />

“We’ve extended the upstairs<br />

kitchen with all new fittings and<br />

appliances, resealed the flooring<br />

to the hall and stage, given<br />

the ceilings, walls and doors a<br />

new paint job and upgraded the<br />

toilets.<br />

“This is part of our ongoing<br />

refurbishments of our council facilities<br />

– these are great treasures<br />

dotted around the city, and they<br />

can be booked for all sorts of<br />

functions, classes and meetings.<br />

“Up next, we’ll be improving<br />

Ascot Community Centre,<br />

Fendalton Community<br />

Centre, Harvard Lounge, Hei<br />

Hei Community Centre and<br />

Waimairi Community Centre,”<br />

Filsell said.<br />

The North New Brighton<br />

Community Centre<br />

refurbishment is a result of the<br />

city council’s recently completed<br />

community facilities network<br />

plan. This plan gives a snapshot<br />

of facilities across the city.<br />

By understanding where<br />

these spaces are and what each<br />

can offer, the city council can<br />

work with the community to<br />

make the most of each facility<br />

in the network, and identify and<br />

support opportunities for the<br />

community to activate, operate<br />

or own the facilities.<br />

In Brief<br />

BUS STOP NOTICES<br />

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board has asked<br />

the city council to make the<br />

information notices outside the<br />

Eastgate Shopping Centre transport<br />

hub larger. A resident raised<br />

concerns about the signs, which<br />

outline the temporary relocation<br />

of bus stops, saying they are too<br />

small and difficult to read for the<br />

visually impaired. The area is being<br />

transformed to make it safer<br />

for people to access the bus stops.<br />

PLANTING DAY<br />

Volunteers are invited to take<br />

part in the second Trees for<br />

Canterbury community planting<br />

event at Horseshoe Lake Reserve<br />

on <strong>June</strong> 26, 10am to noon. The<br />

project aims to plant more native<br />

trees and shrubs, donated by<br />

TFC, in the area. Take your<br />

family, friends and a spade.<br />

RUBBISH BIN CHANGE<br />

A rubbish bin that was removed<br />

after it was lit on fire in a car<br />

park between the New Brighton<br />

Surf Club and He Puna<br />

Taimoana hot pools will not be<br />

replaced. City council staff said<br />

large “smart bins” have been<br />

installed in the area, which take<br />

six to 10 times more rubbish<br />

than the old bin. Staff said they<br />

have not observed increased<br />

littering since the bin’s removal.<br />

Men’s socks,<br />

underwear<br />

sought<br />

by charity<br />

A WAINONI charity is seeking<br />

donations of new “socks and<br />

jocks” for the vulnerable men it<br />

supports.<br />

Coinciding with Men’s Mental<br />

Health Week, the He Waka Tapu<br />

Trust’s Brotherhood programme<br />

is holding its inaugural “socks and<br />

jocks week.”<br />

The trust provides practical<br />

donations such as clothing,<br />

homewares and toiletries to men<br />

who have experienced adversity in<br />

their lives.<br />

Many of them attend courses<br />

at the trust, with themes such as<br />

stopping violence, building confidence<br />

and self-esteem, alcohol<br />

and drug education, social support<br />

and health and fitness.<br />

The aim is to buy new socks or<br />

underwear in any colour or size<br />

which have to remain in their<br />

original packaging.<br />

Like-minded businesses, organisations<br />

and the wider public<br />

have until tomorrow to deliver<br />

the goods to the nearest drop-off<br />

point.<br />

•A list of drop-off points can<br />

‘It brings Parklands together’<br />

•From page 1<br />

“So it got me thinking that we<br />

could get something there to say:<br />

‘We can look after you’,” Donnell<br />

said.<br />

The initiative comes after<br />

meetings between residents,<br />

schools, community groups,<br />

business owners, city council staff<br />

and police to discuss concerns<br />

over increased youth offending in<br />

the area.<br />

The meetings, spearheaded<br />

by Donnell, followed a<br />

2000-signature petition he<br />

started in an effort to get the<br />

city council to install crime<br />

prevention cameras at Parklands<br />

Reserve, Parklands Community<br />

Centre and the Travis Wetlands<br />

car park on Mairehau Rd.<br />

Donnell told <strong>Pegasus</strong> <strong>Post</strong> in<br />

March, the incidents, largely<br />

involving teenagers, allegedly<br />

included assault with knives,<br />

theft, car break-ins and children<br />

selling drugs.<br />

But it seems like the issues<br />

have taken a turn for the better<br />

since residents took a proactive<br />

approach.<br />

“Crime’s down, there’s a lot<br />

more police in the area now,<br />

which is great. Every second day<br />

someone was getting beaten up<br />

or cars were getting broken into,”<br />

Donnell said.<br />

“But it’s basically been a<br />

HELP: The Safe House Community Stickers are designed to<br />

go on Parkland’s residents’ letterboxes.<br />

month-and-a-half since we<br />

had anything like that on our<br />

Facebook page, residents are<br />

looking out for each other.<br />

“A lot of kids are playing sports<br />

now, using those fields and the<br />

community is out and about.”<br />

Outcomes and future steps<br />

that came to light following<br />

the meetings were highlighted<br />

by Donnell at a recent Coastal-<br />

Burwood Community Board<br />

meeting.<br />

These included a youth drop-in<br />

hub at the Pukeko Centre where<br />

“kids might need a feed,” and<br />

having a system where existing<br />

trusts, residents’ associations,<br />

and community groups can<br />

collectively provide assistance to<br />

tackle common issues.<br />

Community board deputy<br />

chairwoman Jo Zervos and<br />

other members were also at the<br />

meetings to listen to residents’<br />

concerns.<br />

Everything from loitering at<br />

playgrounds and more lighting<br />

in public places to supporting<br />

parents and enabling more<br />

community involvement in many<br />

aspects of Parklands life was<br />

discussed.<br />

“[The meetings]<br />

were very heated<br />

and there were<br />

a lot of upset<br />

people, but<br />

halfway through<br />

Jo Zervos<br />

the night, the<br />

tides turned. It<br />

went from negative<br />

thinking to positive solutions,”<br />

said Zervos.<br />

“It’s one of these things that’s<br />

happening all around the city,<br />

not just Parklands. But Parklands<br />

decided to act and that’s really<br />

fantastic.”<br />

Zervos praised Donnell and<br />

the community for getting their<br />

heads together to form solutions,<br />

including the Safe House stickers.<br />

But they will not be launched<br />

until Donnell receives more<br />

funding and legal advice.<br />

“It brings Parklands together<br />

and strengthens it,” she said.<br />

“And it’ll be beneficial for kids<br />

knowing that they can go to a<br />

house if they feel under threat or<br />

need help; there’s been concern<br />

about bullying tactics and kids<br />

with crime.”<br />

Issues highlighted in survey<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

RESIDENTS ARE largely<br />

unsatisfied with the condition<br />

of roads and footpaths in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

The city council’s recent<br />

Christchurch Residents’ Survey<br />

revealed only<br />

29 per cent<br />

of those who<br />

gave feedback<br />

are satisfied<br />

with the<br />

condition of<br />

roads and 36<br />

Bronwyn<br />

Hayward<br />

per cent with<br />

footpaths.<br />

It comes<br />

as the city council’s Long Term<br />

Plan, which outlines its 10-year<br />

budget, and has been undergoing<br />

consultation since March, will be<br />

finalised this month. It includes a<br />

proposed budget of $18.3 million<br />

a year, for the first three years of<br />

the plan, for road resurfacing.<br />

Meanwhile, the results of<br />

the survey show 24 per cent<br />

of respondents who have been<br />

involved in governance processes<br />

are satisfied with their influence<br />

on city council decisions and<br />

only 36 per cent understand how<br />

its decisions are made.<br />

Term Plan.<br />

The city council says it is working<br />

on ways to improve engagement.<br />

The Star spoke to residents<br />

in April after written consultation<br />

for the Long Term Plan had<br />

closed. All either did not know<br />

what the Long Term Plan is, or<br />

chose not to give feedback on it.<br />

Canterbury University professor<br />

Bronwyn Hayward believes<br />

the number of people who gave<br />

feedback on the draft Long Term<br />

Plan is promising. However,<br />

she said the reason more people<br />

did not give feedback, could be<br />

because they have a lack satisfaction<br />

with their influence on city<br />

council decisions.<br />

“It is costly in terms of time<br />

and resources to actually read<br />

a plan and spend time writing<br />

formal submissions.<br />

“Many people that give submissions<br />

are not expecting to<br />

have their submissions agreed<br />

with, but we do know that people<br />

have confidence in a process<br />

when they feel that they were<br />

listened to respectfully and given<br />

enough time to be heard.”<br />

Said city councillor Yani Johanson:<br />

“I think at a governance<br />

level, we do need to consider how<br />

we make it easier for people to<br />

understand what council’s doing<br />

and to be involved in what council’s<br />

doing.<br />

“Certainly, making it easier for<br />

people to understand information<br />

is critical. The second thing<br />

is having greater transparency<br />

and openness around our briefings.”<br />

Said city council head of community<br />

support, governance and<br />

partnerships John Filsell: “We<br />

are always looking at ways we<br />

can improve our engagement.<br />

“We are continuing to engage<br />

and educate on decisions and we<br />

actively encourage as many people<br />

as possible to submit, contribute<br />

and get involved via a variety<br />

of channels – online, hard copy<br />

and face to face.<br />

“These questions [in the survey]<br />

seek to establish if citizens<br />

have had that opportunity to<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

Trust granted more space to grow<br />

native trees for the community<br />

A CHARITABLE trust which<br />

runs a native tree nursery<br />

providing thousands of trees<br />

each year for community<br />

planting projects across the city<br />

is expanding its operation.<br />

The Linwood-Central-<br />

Heathcote Community Board<br />

has given The Green Effect<br />

Trust permission to lease more<br />

of Charlesworth Reserve, Ferrymead,<br />

so it can increase the<br />

size of its Trees for Canterbury<br />

native tree nursery.<br />

The trust grows more than<br />

150,000 plants a year, of which<br />

around 40,000 are donated for<br />

community planting projects.<br />

The remainder are sold on a<br />

commercial basis, with all the<br />

profits reinvested in the organisation.<br />

Trees for Canterbury manager<br />

Steve Bush said the expansion<br />

of the nursery meant a lot to the<br />

trust.<br />

“It increases employment with<br />

an extra staff member being<br />

brought on board, it enables us to<br />

support more volunteers and to<br />

offer more educational activities<br />

on-site, while providing the extra<br />

space to grow more eco-sourced<br />

EXPANSION: Trees for Canterbury trust manager Steve Bush said being granted<br />

permission to expand its operations meant more people with disabilities can be<br />

employed to work for them.<br />

local plant species for projects<br />

and plantings in Christchurch,’’<br />

he said.<br />

“There has been so much pressure<br />

to supply local species, our<br />

resources are at breaking point.<br />

Without this extension, it will<br />

hold back our support for the<br />

huge number of community and<br />

council plantings that are happening<br />

and being planned for<br />

the future.’’<br />

Community board<br />

chairwoman Alexandra Davids<br />

said there is increasing demand<br />

for native plants to assist in<br />

the regeneration of the former<br />

red zone, and to meet the<br />

Government’s aspirations for<br />

the planting of one billion<br />

trees.<br />

“They came<br />

to us asking<br />

for permission<br />

to lease an<br />

additional<br />

3000 sq m of<br />

Charlesworth<br />

Alexandra<br />

Davids<br />

Reserve and the<br />

board has agreed<br />

to that request,”<br />

she said.<br />

Trees for Canterbury not only<br />

helps with regeneration efforts<br />

across the region, but it also<br />

provides work opportunities<br />

for disadvantaged people in<br />

communities.<br />

Said Davids: “It does very<br />

worthwhile work and we view<br />

the expansion of its nursery<br />

as a positive move as it means<br />

it will be able to provide more<br />

tree seedlings to schools and<br />

community groups that are<br />

working to enhance their local<br />

environment.”<br />

Most elder abuse is<br />

hidden in plain sight<br />

Fight for community centre rebuild continues<br />

• By Tina Grumball<br />

TEN YEARS on, the residents of<br />

Shirley are still fighting to have<br />

their community centre rebuilt.<br />

The Shirley Rd centre was<br />

damaged in the February 22,<br />

2011, earthquake, and demolished<br />

soon after.<br />

Joanne Byrne, spokeswoman<br />

for the 10 Shirley Road group,<br />

said the centre had been “absolutely<br />

thriving before the<br />

earthquakes.”<br />

Residents had been forced to<br />

use Shirley Library as a makeshift<br />

centre, but this was not a<br />

permanent solution.<br />

“We don’t have the space in<br />

our current library. It’s outdated,<br />

it’s not fit for the purpose anymore,”<br />

Byrne said.<br />

Byrne said an influx in infill<br />

housing and populating in<br />

Shirley would mean a higher<br />

demand for community centres.<br />

‘“It’s time for an overview of<br />

the facilities in our area.”<br />

Shirley Road Central chairwoman<br />

Jennifer Dalziel said<br />

young people were among the<br />

most affected, with holiday and<br />

after-school programmes not<br />

able to function at full capacity.<br />

Dalziel said that young people<br />

are often found playing in the<br />

car park of The Palms shopping<br />

centre instead.<br />

CAMPAIGN: Joanne Byrne, spokeswoman for the 10 Shirley Road group, has been fighting<br />

the city council to have the suburb’s community centre rebuilt. PHOTO: TINA GRUMBALL ​<br />

She said parents wanted<br />

their youth to be “going out<br />

to a holiday programme” and<br />

“connecting with other people,”<br />

rather than “sitting around on<br />

PlayStations,” or playing in the<br />

car park.<br />

“People have lost the ability<br />

to get out and socialise with<br />

people.”<br />

A petition started three years<br />

ago, by the Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board to fight the council<br />

on funding has been signed<br />

by 1200 people so far.<br />

Advocates for Shirley, Byrne<br />

and Dalziel presented the petition<br />

to the city council in May,<br />

during Long-Term Plan submissions.<br />

Byrne and Dalziel also brought<br />

along letters of support from<br />

Christchurch East MP Poto Williams,<br />

and Christchurch Central<br />

MP Dr Duncan Webb.<br />

There was “originally money<br />

put aside for a research study,”<br />

Byrne said, “but that disappeared<br />

after the plan and there<br />

was absolutely nothing.<br />

“We’re starting from scratch.”<br />

The city council has not<br />

decided on the next Long Term<br />

Plan yet, but the advocates<br />

are hoping and “really, really<br />

praying” their submission will go<br />

through.<br />

Looking at other community<br />

centres that have been built since<br />

the earthquakes, they are hoping<br />

for $5 million to $10 million.<br />

Said Byrne: “It’s time to move<br />

forward now. We need to build<br />

for the next 50 years.”<br />

These are essential upgrades to the network,<br />

so we can better service the fast-growing Belfast<br />

and Marshland areas. To do this work, we need to<br />

close Prestons Road, between Marshland Road<br />

Six tips to get the most efficiency<br />

out of your heat pump<br />

Make sure it’s clean<br />

A clean heat pump filter will help your<br />

heat pump run more effectively and<br />

efficiently.<br />

Give your filter a good clean as we head<br />

into the cold season, and ideally clean your<br />

filters once a month during winter.<br />

Know your temperatures<br />

Set your heat pump temperature to 18<br />

deg C or above to help fight damp and<br />

mould, and below 21 deg C to save on<br />

power.<br />

Heat where you eat/sleep, play<br />

Heat pumps use the most energy<br />

when they’re getting a room up to a set<br />

temperature. Heat the rooms you use<br />

most often.<br />

Close the doors to unused rooms<br />

to avoid heating unrequired space (ie<br />

spare bedrooms etc).<br />

Don’t run your heat pump<br />

constantly<br />

A lot of people believe that keeping a<br />

heat pump running 24/7 is an efficient,<br />

cost-effective way to heat their home.<br />

Doing this will use more energy than<br />

only using it as required.<br />

Fixed Price.<br />

Full Service.<br />

Quality.<br />

Now,<br />

Use your timer<br />

Set your timer to turn on just before you<br />

get home from work and/or before you<br />

wake.<br />

Set or turn off when you leave for the<br />

day and before retiring to another room.<br />

Avoid an expensive mistake<br />

If you are looking to buy a heat pump,<br />

Prepare your<br />

home for winter<br />

Minimise your heat loss<br />

Insulation<br />

Without insulation, approx. 30-35%<br />

of the heat loss occurs through the roof,<br />

20-30% through windows, and 20-25%<br />

through walls. The floor and air leakage<br />

make up the balance.<br />

Drafts<br />

Seal up any unused openings such as cat<br />

doors and open fireplaces.<br />

Use draft stopping tape around windows<br />

and tape, door ‘sausages or a rolled-up<br />

towel for doors.<br />

Double glaze windows, there is a wide<br />

range of DIY Window insulation kits that<br />

are both effective and economical.<br />

Downlight fittings<br />

Some modern LED downlights have<br />

insulation fitted over them, instead of<br />

leaving a gap for fire prevention.<br />

Super-efficient LEDs use less energy<br />

and can save lighting costs. Ask a lighting<br />

specialist or registered electrician for<br />

advice.<br />

Simple steps to reduce dampness<br />

Air your home regularly<br />

Open doors and windows for 10-15<br />

minutes each morning or use a ventilation<br />

system.<br />

Use energy efficient, low<br />

emissions heaters<br />

Heat rooms being used to at least 18˚C.<br />

Don’t use unflued or portable gas heaters.<br />

Use extractor fans<br />

They can help to get rid of moisture in<br />

the bathroom and laundry and use a fan or<br />

rangehood in the kitchen.<br />

Use lids on pots when you cook<br />

This helps to stop the steam escaping.<br />

Turn on the fan before a shower<br />

or bath<br />

Shut the bathroom door and open the<br />

window slightly. Afterwards, leave the fan<br />

running until the moisture clears.<br />

Move furniture away from walls in<br />

winter<br />

A 10cm gap discourages mould<br />

(especially on external walls).<br />

Dry washing outside<br />

Use a washing line or rack in the garage<br />

or a under covered area.<br />

Leave wardrobes slightly open<br />

A little air circulation discourages mould<br />

growing on fabric.<br />

Buy — sell — reside with<br />

peace of mind<br />

Any property, old or new, can have<br />

hidden problems. It is important to know<br />

the true condition of your current, or<br />

potential property.<br />

An AA House Check report can provide<br />

you with the confidence to buy or sell with<br />

no surprises.<br />

Property examinations provide detailed<br />

room by room inspections, including<br />

roof cavity, insulation, flooring, electrical,<br />

plumbing, drainage, hot water systems,<br />

roofing, decks, paths and driveways,<br />

garages, asbestos identification and more.<br />

A BOINZ accredited building surveyor<br />

can also carry out moisture checks,<br />

residential foundation inspections,<br />

earthquake damage repair assessments and<br />

methamphetamine testing.<br />

Serving Canterbury homeowners,<br />

landlords and prospective home buyers for<br />

Keep cosy with<br />

RD Petroleum<br />

this winter<br />

Junior pupils at Queenspark School<br />

took a break from the classroom and<br />

participated in the first perceptual motor<br />

programme session of the year.<br />

THe pupils had fun leaping, crawling<br />

and jumping to complete activities<br />

designed to help children develop their<br />

fine motor skills.<br />

It creates an opportunity for children<br />

to explore their untapped potential with<br />

the use of colour, music, food, games and<br />

hands-on activities.<br />

RD Petroleum (RDP) is a familiar sight<br />

for farm and rural residents around the<br />

Canterbury region, however now days urban<br />

residents also enjoy the same excellent<br />

customer service for which RDP is known for<br />

in rural communities, through their home<br />

heating diesel.<br />

RDP began its home heating diesel delivery<br />

service to the lower South Island’s main urban<br />

centres of Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin<br />

and Invercargill a number of years ago.<br />

Customer demand has continued to increase<br />

year upon year, and RDP has responded<br />

with specialised improvements to its delivery<br />

equipment.<br />

The trucks that deliver RDP’s home heating<br />

diesel in each urban centre are drawn from<br />

the company’s extensive vehicle fleet. This<br />

means they have the latest communication<br />

and GPS tracking technology on board, so<br />

the operations team always know where they<br />

are and how far away they are from their next<br />

delivery stop.<br />

RDP’s home heating diesel trucks come<br />

equipped with a specially-designed hose,<br />

through which the diesel is pumped from<br />

the truck into house tanks. The length of<br />

the hose allows the trucks to access tanks<br />

without having to enter the property, avoiding<br />

damaging the driveway. RDP is the place to<br />

go if you require diesel conveniently delivered<br />

to your home and as a loyal RDP customer<br />

you’re offered discounted pricing and can<br />

become eligible for value-added benefits.<br />

Get the balance<br />

right this winter<br />

Enviro Master has been helping<br />

Cantabrians get the balance right when it<br />

comes to choosing the perfect heat pump or<br />

air conditioning system for their home or<br />

office since 2002.<br />

Their team of expert sales people, qualified<br />

electricians, heating and refrigeration<br />

engineers, help to supply and install<br />

Christchurch’s widest range of heat pumps,<br />

and because they have no affiliation with any<br />

one brand, you can be assured their advice<br />

on the benefits and differences between each<br />

product is unbiased.<br />

They will recommend the most energyefficient<br />

and cost-effective system for your<br />

individual situation, and will have you<br />

regulating the heat in your home or office in<br />

no time.<br />

Nowadays, customers are often wanting<br />

whole home solutions to be able to maintain<br />

even temperatures throughout the home both<br />

in Winter and Summer. This can be achieved<br />

by using ducted systems or multi systems<br />

and Enviro Master are experts in designing,<br />

installing and commissioning these systems.<br />

Help is currently available with a<br />

government subsidy covering 80 per cent of<br />

the cost of a new heat pump up to $3000.<br />

The subsidy is part of the Warmer Kiwi<br />

Homes initiative and is available to Home<br />

owner/occupiers with a Community Services<br />

Card, a SuperGold combo card or who live in<br />

a low-income area as determined by deciles<br />

8-10 on the New Zealand Deprivation Index.<br />

The applicant’s home must also have been<br />

built before 2008, have insulation up to code<br />

(insulation subsidies also available) and have<br />

no fixed heating in a living area, such as an<br />

existing operational heat pump or fireplace.<br />

With new regulations coming in for<br />

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,<br />

now is a great time to beat the deadline.<br />

Inadequate heating and ventilation can lead<br />

to mould growth and dampness in your<br />

property, leading to costlier maintenance<br />

and an unhealthy living environment.<br />

Providing a fixed heater with a higher heat<br />

output and lower running costs, like a heat<br />

pump, will enable your tenants to heat the<br />

area effectively. Enviro Master are well<br />

experienced with the Tenancy Services<br />

software to ensure that you are meeting your<br />

requirements.<br />

To ensure you choose the right system for<br />

your home or business, one of Enviro Master’s<br />

experts will visit to assess your individual<br />

situation, offer advice and answer any<br />

questions you may have. This consultation<br />

is at no cost to the customer and is always<br />

provided before a heat pump is installed.<br />

Anyone wondering about their eligibility<br />

for a subsidised heat pump are welcome to<br />

get in touch for details and help with the<br />

application process. To find out more, call<br />

Enviro Master on (03) 366 0525 or visit<br />

their website www.enviromaster.co.nz.<br />

What makes a great<br />

Heat Transfer System?<br />

There are a number of Heat Transfer<br />

systems on the market. Smooth-Air<br />

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU<br />

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected<br />

components to optimise the system:<br />

They use insulated duct to transfer the<br />

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.<br />

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance<br />

and number of rooms, without being noisy.<br />

The diffusers send the heat to the floor, not to<br />

skim the across the ceilings. All components<br />

are good quality - designed to operate for<br />

years without problems.<br />

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of<br />

options: One to four rooms, with or without<br />

thermostat and with a choice of grilles and<br />

diffusers. HTUs improve energy efficiency<br />

in your house, as you are using excess<br />

heat. They have low power consumption<br />

- only 80watts for the three room system.<br />

Circulating air through the house also<br />

reduces the risk of damp.<br />

You can also choose the HTU version with<br />

downjet diffusers, which throw the warm<br />

air downwards to the floor. These downjet<br />

diffusers can also be adjusted to regulate<br />

which room receives the most warm air.<br />

An average size living room requires 2-4 kw<br />

of heating, yet appliances such as log burners<br />

generate heat in the region of 10 -20kw. This<br />

leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of heat which<br />

sits at high level in the heated room, usually<br />

above door level.<br />

Heat transfer units work best where very<br />

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the<br />

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate warm<br />

air around the room with no layering, are<br />

not suitable as a heat source by themselves.<br />

However, if you have both log burner and<br />

a heat pump, heat transfer systems with<br />

thermostat can work very well: The heat<br />

pump stops operating once the heat from the<br />

fire has heated the room, and the heat transfer<br />

kicks in above this point, once there is a layer<br />

of hot air at the ceiling.<br />

Use garlic and onions to jazz up roast<br />

Sunday roasts are<br />

a traditional Kiwi<br />

favourite. Try adding<br />

some powerful flavours<br />

for a change that<br />

should please the<br />

whole family<br />

Roast beef with garlic and<br />

onions<br />

Ingredients<br />

1.5kg rolled roast beef<br />

2 medium onions<br />

2 carrots<br />

2 sticks celery<br />

1 bulb of garlic<br />

1 bunch of mixed fresh herbs ,<br />

such as thyme, rosemary, bay,<br />

sage<br />

olive oil<br />

Directions<br />

roasting tray and drizzle with oil.<br />

Drizzle the beef with oil and<br />

season well with sea salt and<br />

black pepper, then rub all over<br />

the meat. Place the beef on top of<br />

the vegetables.<br />

Place the tray in the oven,<br />

then turn the heat down<br />

immediately to 200 deg C<br />

and cook for 1 hour for<br />

medium beef. If you prefer it<br />

medium-rare, take it out five to<br />

10min earlier. For well done,<br />

leave it in for another 10<br />

to 15min.<br />

If you’re doing roast potatoes<br />

and veges, this is the time to<br />

crack on with them – get them<br />

into the oven for the last 45min<br />

of cooking.<br />

cooking and if the veges look dry,<br />

add a splash of water to the tray<br />

to stop them from burning.<br />

When the beef is cooked<br />

to your liking, take the tray out of<br />

the oven and transfer the beef to<br />

a board to rest for 15min. Cover<br />

it with a layer of tin foil and a tea<br />

towel and leave<br />

aside while you make your<br />

gravy, horseradish sauce and<br />

yorkshire puddings.<br />

Remove the beef from the<br />

fridge 30min before you want to<br />

cook it, to let it come up to room<br />

temperature.<br />

Preheat the oven to 240 deg C.<br />

Baked chicken breasts<br />

Wash and roughly chop the<br />

vegetables – there’s no need<br />

Ingredients<br />

to peel them. Break the garlic<br />

bulb<br />

260<br />

into cloves, leaving them<br />

x 180<br />

4 tablespoons olive oil<br />

unpeeled.<br />

3 tablespoons honey<br />

Pile all the veges, garlic and<br />

2 tablespoons whole grain<br />

herbs into the middle of a large Baste the beef halfway through mustard<br />

1 tablespoon smooth and mild<br />

Dijon mustard<br />

4 cloves garlic, peeled and<br />

minced<br />

1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon<br />

juice<br />

1/2 teaspoon paprika<br />

2 pounds (1 kg) boneless skinless<br />

chicken breasts, (4 large<br />

chicken breasts)<br />

Salt and cracked black pepper,<br />

to season<br />

2 tablespoons fresh chopped<br />

parsley, to garnish (optional)<br />

Lemon wedges, to serve<br />

(optional)<br />

Directions<br />

Onions roast<br />

up well in<br />

the oven<br />

with beef,<br />

don’t forget<br />

to garnish<br />

with herbs<br />

before<br />

serving<br />

Preheat oven to 200 deg C.<br />

Lightly grease a baking tray/<br />

sheet with oil and line with foil or<br />

parchment paper.<br />

Combine the oil, honey,<br />

mustards, garlic, lemon juice<br />

and paprika in a small bowl to<br />

combine well.<br />

Place the chicken onto the<br />

prepared baking sheet (tray).<br />

Season generously with salt and<br />

pepper. Spoon three-quarters<br />

of the honey mustard mixture<br />

evenly over the chicken and<br />

spread evenly all over each<br />

breast. Pour a quarter of a cup of<br />

water onto the baking sheet to<br />

prevent burning, creating a sauce<br />

while baking.<br />

Bake until cooked through<br />

(about 20-30min, depending<br />

on the thickness of the breasts).<br />

Spoon the remaining sauce over<br />

each breast and broil (or grill) for<br />

a further three-to-four minutes<br />

on medium-high heat to brown<br />

the chicken and caramelise the<br />

edges.<br />

Cover with foil and allow to<br />

rest for 10min to let the juices<br />

settle before serving.<br />

Garnish with parsley and serve<br />

immediately with lemon wedges.<br />

Notes<br />

To include roasted asparagus,<br />

arrange them onto the same<br />

baking sheet around the chicken<br />

in the last 10 minutes of cooking<br />

time. Rotate them in the pan<br />

juices or pan sauce and season<br />

with salt and pepper.<br />
