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 fiffth 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 Scarborough Dippers

has grown exponentially over fifve

years, having started off with just

four keen dippers.

More than 40 people are gathering

for the group’s dips and she

is expecting around 20 people

to commit to Wet July, although

typically many more join in 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.

Couple rescue Heathcote from weeds

EAGER TO be “part of the

solution” and not simply

onlookers, Gen and Malcolm

Long have dug deep to rescue

reserves and tracks from

smothering weeds along the

Heathcote River.

The busy couple, who are part

of the volunteer army working

with city council staff to keep

parks, reserves, paths and tracks

beautiful, were highlighted

during National Volunteer Week.

They became involved after

being impressed when a “dark,

sinister, overgrown track” near

the Woolston Cut was turned

into a “lovely” path several years

ago – thanks to a group of hardworking

volunteers.

Seeing a simple sign nearby

seeking volunteers, they quickly

joined the Laura Kent Reserve

work group – “now a collection

of like-minded friends who enjoy

the monthly catch-up and also

socialise.”

Walking in the other direction

one day towards Farnley Reserve

in Beckenham, they found

COMMUNITY: Gen and Malcolm

Long (left) are part of a group of

volunteers clearing weeds from

the reserves and tracks along the

Heathcote River.

PHOTOS: NEWSLINE

“tradescantia creeping over

all the surfaces, convolvulus

smothering smaller shrubs” and

a proliferation of other weeds.

“We had just become involved

with the Ōpāwaho-Heathcote

River Network and Gen was

tasked with co-ordinating

community groups working

along the river to celebrate World

Rivers Day,” Malcolm said.

Concerned that nothing would

happen at Farnley Reserve unless

someone stepped forward, they

“decided to create a public work

day on World Rivers Day.”

Malcolm said more than 50

people turned up to “attack

the weeds.” Now the Friends

of Farnley Reserve group

gathers every month, sharing

in their “pride as the reserve

starts looking better and the

compliments of passers-by flow.”

Gen, 63, an itinerant teacher

of music, and Malcolm, 66, a

retired teacher and education

administrator, oversee the

Friends of Farnley, keeping

members up to date, notifying

the public of work in the

area, engaging with the local

community and liaising with the

city council’s urban park ranger

to organise workdays.

They devote several hours each

month to their volunteer work,

but find “pleasure in seeing

the river being respected” and

satisfaction through restoration

and regeneration. They are

personally “happier and more

satisfied for being involved” in

protecting a special space and

urge others to join in.

GREAT

WINTER

READS

INSTORE NOW!

NEW RELEASES

The Mirror Book

by Charlotte Grimshsaw

Growing up behind the family façade. Brave, explosive, and thoughtprovoking,

this is a powerful memoir from a critically acclaimed writer. ‘It’s

material, make a story out of it,’ was the mantra Charlotte Grimshaw grew up

with in her famous literary family. But when her life suddenly turned upsidedown,

she needed to re-examine the reality of that material. The more she

delved into her memories, the more the real characters in her life seemed to

object. So what was the truth of ‘a whole life lived in fiction’? This is a vivid

account of a New Zealand upbringing, where rebellion was encouraged,

where trouble and tragedy lay ahead. It looks beyond the public face to the

‘messy reality of family life - and much more’.

Tikanga

by Francis Tipene & Kaiora Tipene

Living a fulfilling life rich with tradition, connection and te ao Maori Following

on from their bestseller, Life as a Casketeer, Francis and Kaiora Tipene share

how they bring the traditional values of tikanga Maori into day-to-day living,

what they know about whanau, mahi and manaakitanga, and how they live

a life rich with the concepts of te ao Maori Known for their warm hearts, grace

and humour, the stars of the wildly popular series The Casketeers show how

the traditions of tikanga shapes their lives juggling five sons, three businesses

and a television show - all while sustaining a life filled with joy and connection.

Jacinda Ardern: Leading With Empathy

by Supriya Vani and Carl A Harte

Jacinda Ardern: Leading with Empathy is a major biography of one of the

most important and inspirational leaders of the twenty-first century, based

on interviews with the New Zealand Prime Minister herself.

Jacinda Ardern: Leading with Empathy carefully explores the influences

– personal, social, political and emotional – that have shaped Ardern.

Acclaimed peace activist and journalist Supriya Vani and writer Carl A Harte

build their narrative through Vani’s personal interviews with Ardern, as well

as the prime minister’s public statements and speeches and the words of

those who know her. We visit the places, meet the people and understand

the events that propelled the daughter of a small-town Mormon policeman

into a committed social democrat, a passionate Labour Party politician, and

a model modern leader.

Kiwi Farmers’ Guide To Life

rural Tales from the Heartland by Tim Fulton

Kiwi Farmers’ Guide to Life does just that, telling stories of New

Zealand farmers, agribusiness entrepreneurs and even a couple

of scientists. Each one knows about sweat, quick thinking and the

importance of a sense of humour in the world of agriculture. From

a dive into farming history to a probe of modern agri issues, Kiwi

Farmers’ Guide to Life shows farmers at their finest and in some

cases - at their most vulnerable. At heart, these stories explore why

farmers do what they do, rather than how. So, put on your gumboots

and let’s take that road less travelled.

Knock Knock: Confessions of a Kiwi Interviewer

by Trish Palmer

Extraordinary stories from a lifetime spent conducting interviews. This is the

world of the dreaded door-knock from the other side of the door. Trish Palmer

has been working as an interviewer and area manager for market research

companies for over 20 years, invited into the homes and private lives of an

astonishing array of folk from every lifestyle imaginable. Her experiences on

the job entail everything from bare bottoms to angry cats, the desperately

struggling to the well-off, and everyone in between. There is comedy and

sadness, surprises and the downright odd, from witches to boat-builders,

dope growers and more. Poignant, hilarious, and always thought-provoking,

this is a highly entertaining read.

“It has happened in the past

Timely reminder of Olympic track star

Peggy Butterfield

the historical display at

the heritage museum

WITH THE Tokyo Olympics,

just weeks away, we remember

the 1964 Tokyo games in which

South New Brighton star, Marise

Chamberlain, competed.

Chamberlain was a bronze

medal winner in the women’s

800m in a time of 2:02.8, and

she finished third to the winner

Great Britain’s Anne Parker.

To this day she remains only

one of two New Zealand female

track medallists; the other is

Lorraine Moller who ran third

in the 1992 Barcelona Games

marathon.

Only three other female

athletes have won Olympic

medals in the field events –

Yvette Williams (long jump),

and Eliza McCartney (pole

85-years-old and still lives in

afternoons at 1pm.

Chamberlain was inducted

into the New Zealand Sports

Hall of Fame in 1995. She was

among the fastest in the world

over 400m and 800m – and for

a time was the fastest over 400m

and the second-fastest over

800m – but this was when such

races for women were rarely on

international programmes.

In the Tokyo afternoons,

Chamberlain would complete

her track workouts with the

Lydiard squad – including the

late Sir Peter Snell, who went on

to win double gold on the track

in the National Stadium.

It was Snell who looked at

Chamberlain’s training shoes

and was shocked to see the backs

cut out of them and well past

their best.

Chamberlain suffered

from chronic bursitis in both

ankles throughout her career

and had altered her training

shoes to relieve pressure on the

bursae.

Snell took Chamberlain to the

shoemakers who were outfitting

him and they immediately threw

her old shoes in the bin.

Today, Chamberlain still takes

a daily walk on New Brighton

Beach.

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

New Zealand.

• We offer a free measure and quote in the

Canterbury region with no obligations.

• Assessments can be made in all other

regions by arrangement.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd

now for your free, no obligation quote and

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor

ground moisture barrier needs.

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.
