New take on Shakespeare

It’s Shakespeare,

but not as you

know it. Senior

students from St

Margaret’s College,

including Alexandra

Lehmann, year 13,

combined with

Christ’s College

and the Christ

Church Cathedral

Choristers last

week to perform

their tailored mix

of raucous fun,

comedy, beauty

and dramatic

intensity. The

Shakespearean

Banquet featured

soliloquies,

musical theatre,

comedy, singing,

dancing and roving

performers among

diners at the Christ

Church Transitional

Cathedral. The

event was curated

and directed by St

PLANS FOR a new and

improved Elmwood Park

Bowling Club building costing

about $3 million are rolling

forwards after receiving the green

light from the city council.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

approved the planned demolition

and rebuild on behalf of the city

council in a meeting on Monday.

It received 43 submissions on

the issue, with 36 in support,

10 of whom directly identified

themselves as members of the

club.

Club president Pete Smith was

pleased with the decision.

“I’m elated, absolutely elated.

It’s 12 months of hard work

finally coming to fruition,” Smith

said.

Club member Ian Rule said

in his submission the building

would replace “broken and

depressing” clubrooms.

ELATED: Elmwood Park Bowling Club president Pete Smith is pleased to

have council approval for the demolition and rebuild of the club building.

Above – Concept plan of the new building.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Resource consent granted before submissions heard

• From page 1

“The new building will be

single-storey which will reduce

impact on the neighbours, and

also have much better acoustics,”

Rule said.

Six people submitted against

the new building and one

submission was inconclusive.

Of these, two were from

neighbours on the immediate

boundary with the clubrooms

and the remainder were from

residents in the Strowan area.

Resource consent for the

building had already been

granted before submissions were

heard.

Submitter Richie Dudding

criticised this.

“[It] rather feels like we are a

tick-box function to be signed

off with no regard for our

contribution,” he said.

Sue Cowper spoke to her

submission against at the

meeting.

She was concerned it may not

be used for activities related to

the bowling club.

“The club has a membership

of about 140. They’re asking

permission for a 200-person

bar. It made me think: ‘Oh my

goodness, that’s quite a big deal’.”

Many other submitters

believed the building would be

an asset to the community, she

said.

“The vision of this is

outside the right to occupy the

licence.”

Waimari Ward city councillor

Sam MacDonald said under

the licence agreement, use of

the clubrooms for non-bowling

club-related activity would need

council consent.

The demolition should start in

about six weeks, he said.

Leaders in Learning

BHS Winter Sport

Winter Sport is now well

underway at Burnside

High School. As well

as having a number of

teams entered in club

sports and the School

Sport Canterbury

Wednesday competition,

we have also had a

number of successes

at recent sporting

tournaments.

Over the weekend,

12 - 13 June, both the

Boys Premier Badminton team

Boys and Girls Premier

Badminton teams

competed at the South

Island Secondary Schools

(SISS) Badminton

Championships in

Dunedin, where both

teams won Silver in their

respective events. Over

the same weekend our

Girls Table Tennis Team

claimed Gold at the

Canterbury Secondary

Schools Championships

Girls Premier Badminton team

(CSS), here in

Christchurch.

The SISS Swimming Championship took

place in Timaru, 19 - 20 June, where

outstanding performances from all our

swimmers saw Burnside High School being

awarded the Top Performance by a Co-Ed

School Award.

The Burnside High School Cross Country

team also competed at the New Zealand

Secondary Schools Cross Country, 18-

19 June in Hawera. The team competed

extremely well in some very testing weather

conditions. Recently, our team of very

talented gymnasts competed at both the

New Zealand and Canterbury Secondary

School Championships with a number of

our gymnasts medalling in their events at

both championships.

Our annual Ashburton College Exchange took place on Tuesday

15 June in Ashburton. It was a beautiful day out in the winter sun,

a day that could only be improved by retaining the trophy after

winning 9 events to Ashburton College’s 4, across 8 different

codes.

Outstanding Sporting Achievements

We are in the process of archiving past/present Burnside High School

students/staff members who have excelled in their sporting field.

This may be by either representing their country (age grades or

elite level), attaining national titles, or an outstanding achievement

as an athlete or in a management position. Once completed these

achievements will be displayed on an Honours Board within the

school.

Collection point for bottle tops

• By Fiona Ellis

ST ALBANS’ Maria Lamb

has been gathering rubbish to

recycle for 10 years, but now she

hopes the rubbish will come to

her.

She established a collection

station for plastic bottle tops,

plastic bread bag tags, wine

bottle tops and can tabs at the St

Albans Community Centre last

week.

“My really high inspiration is

that everyone locally can think:

‘Oh yeah, I know where that

goes, I can take it to the community

centre.’

“Hopefully, it will divert litter

from the landfill.”

Rubbish was a huge issue but

this was a way people could

make a small difference, she

said.

She had been collecting litter

while out walking for 10 years.

She also coordinated community

clean-ups, most recently

in St Albans on June 20 in collaboration

with the St Albans

Residents Association.

However, this was the first

community collection point she

had established.

“It’s only in the last six

months I’ve started to coordinate

with people.”

Recycling wine caps and can

tabs was an idea sparked when

her daughter’s school began

collecting them to sell as scrap

metal, with proceeds donated to

charity Kiwi Kids NZ.

This year she began collecting

them from restaurants and

hoped the community would

also respond well.

One wine bottle cap bought

one second on a dialysis machine,

and 3600 bought an hour,

she said.

Plastic tags commonly used

on bags of bread, or bags of

crackers or vegetables were also

recycled for a cause.

Money would go to the

organisation Bread Tags for

Wheelchairs, which paid for

wheelchairs in South Africa.

Plastic bottle tops would be

upcycled into jewellery.

She arranged for them to go

to two local businesses, polylabs

and remix plastics.

“I reached out to them. They’ll

make earrings and necklaces.”

She knew from her walks

there was no shortage of material

on the ground.

“The most common thing you

can find is a plastic bottle.”

Board

grants for

community

groups

GRANTS FOR three different

community groups were

approved at the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board meeting on

Monday afternoon.

The board approved a grant

of $2000 towards garden

operations at the Bryndwr

Community Gardens.

This included equipment,

training and community events.

The gardens aimed to promote

the capacity and health of the

local Bryndwr community.

A second grant of $8000

will go to Canterbury

Neighbourhood Support for its

Avonhead/Russley Community

Safety Initiative.

The board also approved a

grant of $5800 to Styx Living

Laboratory Trust, which has a

primary role of developing the

river catchment.

This would be used towards

its work programme and talking

circle.

The money for these grants

will come from the board’s

2020-21 discretionary response

fund.

Warriors drop in on Avonhead School

INJURED NZ Warriors recruit

Junior Ratuva took time out

from rehab to promote rugby

league during a code-boosting

roadshow at Avonhead School on

Friday.

The 22-year-old Fiji-born

winger’s bid to debut in the NRL

during 2021 was sabotaged by a

season-ending pectoral muscle

following his move from the

Melbourne Storm but he is

signed until the end of 2022.

Ratuva and NZ Warriors NRL

women’s premiership player

Kanyon Paul visited schools

throughout the city on Thursday

and Friday, as part of a Warriors

and New Zealand Rugby League

initiative.

Former Warriors and Kiwis

legend Ruben Wiki and Kiwi

Ferns international Charlotte

Scanlon also held skill sessions

at some of the 12 schools on the

schedule.

The emphasis was on funbased

skill activities, while on a

serious note, the Warriors and

New Zealand Rugby League

community teams delivered a

well-being presentation, focusing

on the importance of sleep,

hydration and nutrition.

Wiki’s former club and

international teammates, Jerry

Seuseu and Ali Lauitiiti, also

spoke to a group of Canterbury

awards to some of the 96 teams

featuring players aged under-five

to 12-years-old.

“It has happened in the past

but not to this scale, having

the Warriors and NZRL down

here working together,” said

Canterbury Rugby League chief

executive Duane Fyfe.

“They can do two schools

at the same time so twice the

number of schools can be visited.

It’s worked out well for us.”

CHILLY: The Scarborough Dippers will brave the elements once again next month. ​

Dippers ready for July challenge

SCARBOROUGH Dippers

is launching its annual Wet

July challenge and this year,

the group’s chilly endeavours

will be raising money for local

community projects.

This will be the fifth year the

group has undertaken Wet July,

where members pledge to get into

the sea every day throughout the

month of July wearing just togs

and a smile, irrespective of the

weather – provided conditions

allow this to be done safely.

Founding member Kerry

Newton, said the group has

grown over the past fifve years,

having started off with just four

keen members.

More than 40 people are

gathering for the dips and she is

expecting about 20 to commit

to Wet July, although typically

many more join over the weekends.

“There has been a growing

interest in wild swimming

and the health and well-being

benefifts of cold-water swimming,

which the regulars can certainly

attest to,” she said.

“This is reflected in the

growing number of people of all

ages who are now joining us on a

daily or weekly basis.”

Last July, the Scarborough

Dippers raised more than $6000,

which was split between the

Sumner and Taylors Mistake surf

lifesaving clubs.

This year the group has

chosen to support community

projects which include upgrading

the Sumner Kindergarten

playground and the surfboard

library based at The Goat Shed.

Others are yet to be confifrmed.

Said Newton: “It is important

for us to support our local

community. Most of us are

from Sumner, Taylors Mistake,

Redcliffs and Mt Pleasant so it

makes sense that we raise money

to support the community that

supports us.”

•More information about

Wet July can be found on

the Scarborough Dippers’

Facebook page.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated

than surgery. After only one treatment you

should know that it will work for you. Call

and only pay $50 on that treament.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the

door and there is ample parking. To enquire about joint pain treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

RD Petroleum (RDP) is a familiar sight

for farm and rural residents around the

Canterbury region, however now days urban

residents also enjoy the same excellent

customer service for which RDP is known for

in rural communities, through their home

heating diesel.

RDP began its home heating diesel delivery

service to the lower South Island’s main urban

centres of Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin

and Invercargill a number of years ago.

Customer demand has continued to increase

year upon year, and RDP has responded

with specialised improvements to its delivery

equipment.

The trucks that deliver RDP’s home heating

diesel in each urban centre are drawn from

the company’s extensive vehicle fleet. This

means they have the latest communication

and GPS tracking technology on board, so

the operations team always know where they

are and how far away they are from their next

delivery stop.

RDP’s home heating diesel trucks come

equipped with a specially-designed hose,

through which the diesel is pumped from

the truck into house tanks. The length of

the hose allows the trucks to access tanks

without having to enter the property, avoiding

damaging the driveway. RDP is the place to

go if you require diesel conveniently delivered

to your home and as a loyal RDP customer

you’re offered discounted pricing and can

become eligible for value-added benefits.

For all enquiries please phone

0800 44 00 14, or visit the RDP website at

HOME & HEATING

Ground moisture barrier

under low sub-floor

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm

and healthy for their families throughout

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects

many of our older properties which suffer

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many

people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests have

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise

from the ground and enter a house every day,

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and

musty smells. Moulds can produce various

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and

very young are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising

damp and are there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,

flowable foam concrete under your timber

floored home.

While insulation is important, it has been

recognised that it is dampness that is the real

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes

Standards introduced by the government

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has

a requirement to install ground moisture

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight

moisture in the home.

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation

on the underside of a timber floor can occur

where the floor is suspended over damp

ground and the inside air temperature falls

close to the crawl space air temperature.

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier

under the suspended wooden floor of your

home, even when there is no crawl space.

• BRANZ Appraised; Appraisal Number 961

• Members of the Insulation Association of

New Zealand.

• We offer a free measure and quote in the

Canterbury region with no obligations.

• Assessments can be made in all other

regions by arrangement.

now for your free, no obligation quote and

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor

ground moisture barrier needs.

The facts about home ventilation

Balanced Pressure

vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need

to be suitably ventilated, either with

opening windows or forced ventilation.

Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this

provision is to safeguard people from

illness or loss of amenity due to lack of

fresh air.” There are many benefits to

forced, or mechanical, ventilation over

opening windows, including warmth,

security, reduction of outside noises and

reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in

from outside via the roof space and force

the stale air out through gaps around

windows and doors. The incoming air

from these systems

has to be heated

or cooled to keep

the house warm in

winter or cool in

summer.

The Smooth-

Air HEX390 is a

‘balanced pressure’

system. It extracts

air from the house

and at the same

time brings in

fresh air. These

two streams of air

pass through a heat

exchanger, which

warms incoming air in winter and cools in

summer if air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of the energy

which would be wasted using a traditional

positive pressure system is recovered,

resulting in significant energy savings and

therefore lower heating or cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure

ventilation systems have been considerably

more expensive than traditional positive

pressure systems. However, with Smooth-

Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a

HEX390 balanced pressure system can be

installed for a similar price as a traditional

positive pressure system.

What happens when an Auction is

brought forward?

The real estate industry often advocates

for selling your home by Auction as the

most effective sales method because

they often achieve an above average

sale price, an unconditional and a timely

sale for their owners.

Sometimes Auctions run their full

campaign (which is usually three and a

half to four weeks) and other times they

are brought forward. What does this

mean?

A brought forward Auction means that

the sellers have accepted a pre-Auction

offer at an acceptable level to warrant

bringing the Auction forward.

Commonly asked questions about this

include:

Q. Will we know what the brought

forward offer price is?

A. No this is kept confidential until

the opening of the early Auction and

this figure is then the opening price.

If there is no further bidding it is

then sold for this amount. If there

is bidding then it is sold to the

highest bidder just like in a normal

auction situation.

Q. Can a Pre-Auction offer have

conditions in it?

A. No, a pre-Auction offer is on the

same terms and conditions as going

to Auction. This means it needs

to be cash and unconditional. You can

however arrange for an aside

agreement for changes to items

such as settlement dates and deposit

amounts etc, these need to be

approved and signed off by the seller

prior to the start of the Auction.

Q. We are interested in a property

going to Auction, how will we know if

a pre-Auction offer comes in?

A. We notify all of the open home

attendees with communication

via text and email and change the

website advertising also. However

it is best practice to formally register

your interest with the agent

in writing. An email or returning the

‘Registration of Interest’ form in

the Auction pack are the two best

forms of doing this to ensure that

you don’t miss out on being told

that an Auction has been brought

forward.

Let’s Talk About The Weather

Although talking about the weather

could be classed as a bit of a filler when

having a conversation, I think most of

us Cantabrians will agree that already

this winter, which only officially began

a short while ago, we have already had

plenty to talk about!

Although we are all dealing with the

effects of the very wet and dreary

conditions in our own homes, when

you are looking after a portfolio of 400

properties, you in effect see first-hand

the effects on steroids!

Unfortunately once the rain clears we

are left with not only the visible effects

of a good downpour, but the hidden

effects as well. Higher water table

levels underground can cause rising

damp and even with the new Healthy

Homes Standard compliance being met,

this extreme weather can cause mould

issues.

I was speaking to some scientists

about mould in properties recently

and picked up a couple of tips on how

to easily monitor if the property has

an underlying issue. The simplest is to

photograph the area after you have

cleaned it down (white vinegar is a great

cost-effective solution). Sometimes

after cleaning there is still a mark and

this is what you need to measure. Check

it after about two weeks to see if there

has been an increase in size. If there’s

no change, the cleaning worked. If the

mark has grown, further investigation

and treatments would need to be

undertaken.

To ensure that our tenants are able to

live in nice warm and dry homes we

have sent them out some tips and tricks

to help keep their home dry, which

ultimately means it will be warmer and

healthier.

If you have a tenanted property, or you

are living in a home which is more prone

to dampness in this weather, there are

plenty of resources offering information

on keeping your home healthy, from not

drying washing inside, to cleaning heat

pump filters, or using the ‘dry’ mode on

your heat pump which I have only just

discovered!

Keep warm and dry everyone, I think we

may be in for a wet winter this year!
