HEADS TURNED when

Maggie the border terrier

scampered through Shirley

Library.

Maggie paid a visit one

afternoon last week for the

popular Reading to Dogs

programme run by the city

council.

Maggie headed for the far

end of the library where a red

mat, a pint-sized armchair

and a little dog bed awaited.

Excited nine-year-old twins

Keegan and Riley Salt were

first up. They had booked one

of four 15-minute sessions

with Maggie, who sat obediently

while the boys took

turns reading Seriously, Do

Not Open This Book aloud

and petting the patient sixyear-old

pooch.

Maggie gave the occasional

yawn, but was still an

attentive listener. Keegan kept

her on task: “Sit, Maggie, sit,”

he whispered when she was

momentarily distracted by a

passer-by.

Reading to Dogs has helped

hundreds of children since its

inception seven years ago.

AN UPCOMING feasibility

study could set the ball rolling on

a $3 million community facility at

10 Shirley Rd.

The old community centre

at the address was demolished

following the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

The city

council’s Long

Term Plan,

on June 23,

budgets

$3 million

towards a

rebuild in the

Pauline Cotter 2031-2032

financial year.

It also budgets $35,000 for a

feasibility study to take place in

the 2021-2022 financial year.

Innes Ward city councillor

Pauline Cotter said the future of

the project was in the hands of

the community.

“It’s now with the community,

they’re going

to have to drive that,” Cotter said.

It was possible the $3 million

funding could be brought

forward if a building plan was

ready and viable, she said.

Pool scheduled to open early

LINWOOD’S NEW pool

complex Te Pou Toetoe will

open ahead of schedule, with

construction set to finish ahead

of time and within budget.

October 1 has been earmarked

for opening the much-anticipated

$22 million facility to the

public.

Said city

council head

of recreation,

sports and

events

Nigel Cox:

“Despite the

considerable

Nigel Cox

challenges of

recent times,

CONSTRUCTION: Teams prepare the new Linwood pools in readiness for opening day on

October 1.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

the project team has delivered

the facility ahead of the original

target opening, and within

budget.

“In preparation for the opening,

we’re currently recruiting

and training the team who’ll be

working there.

“A great community facility is

more than just a building – it’s

the team, how they provide for

the needs of the community and

make it an enjoyable place to

visit.”

Linwood Ward city councillor

Yani Johanson has welcomed the

opening date announcement.

“It is great to see the muchanticipated

facility coming

close to completion. It is a true

testament to the hard work

of so many people who have

advocated for this pool over the

past 20 years to see it become a

reality,” he said.

“I am sure it will make a

positive splash in the local

community as people have

been looking forward to it

being open.

“I also want to acknowledge

the stellar work of the project

team – despite the Covid-19

challenges it has remained on

budget and ahead of time.”

The facility on the corner

of Smith St and Linwood Ave

will have a multi-use 25m lane

pool, a deep water splash pool, a

family spa pool, a learn-to-swim

pool, and a pool and water deck

for toddlers.

There will also be a kitchen

and two community rooms,

while outside there will be picnic

tables, tennis, basketball and

multi-use courts, cycle stands,

parking and plenty of open

areas.

A formal opening with guests

will take place on the afternoon

of October 1, with opening

activities planned across

the weekend.

Top issues

revealed in

community

board area

DAMAGED BINS, graffiti and

littering are the top three issues

currently affecting the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board area.

A ticket report has revealed a

breakdown of issues that residents

reported to the city council between

May 22 and June 20.

During that time, 1232 tickets,

or jobs, were completed within an

average of 2.6 days.

Incidents fell into a range of

categories, including transport,

wheelie bins, parks and three

waters council assets.

Damaged bins came out on

top with 103 tickets, with graffiti

and road litter placing second

and third with 98 and 87 tickets

respectively.

Fifty-nine per cent (806) of residents

chose to report concerns by

phone, email and walk-in, while

41 per cent (549) did so online

through Snap Send Solve and

Hybris Online.

But at the conclusion of the

report last month, 355 tickets were

still open, or uncompleted.

The ticket report was included

in discussions at this week’s

community board meeting.

sports centre causing frustration

The project is a venture

between the Parklands Bowling

Club and the Parklands Rugby

Football Club, with financial

support from the community

and trusts such as the Rata

Foundation. They joined forces

following the February 22, 2011

earthquake – the bowling club

rooms were damaged beyond

repair and the rugby club was

displaced from its home base.

The outcome was a multi-use

facility serving as both a home

base for the founding clubs, while

providing much-needed sports

facilities for other grass-roots

clubs, schools and organisations

in the eastern suburbs.

In 2017, two buildings destined

for demolition from the former

Freeville School were saved, with

both relocating onto the bowling

club site on Chadbury St.

The pavilion has been a hit

ever since. Recently, it hosted a

meeting between residents, the

city council and police regarding

youth offending concerns.

Said Weastell: “From our

perspective, it has been very

satisfying given the amount of

activity that has occurred within

the facilities.”

Once operational, Weastell

hoped the hall would provide

children with more things to do –

a welcome distraction away

“I can only speak from my

own experience, but generally

if young people are involved in

sport and recreation it gives them

something to be passionate about

and keeps them occupied,” said

Weastell.

“They can make lifelong

friendships that can only be

beneficial in helping to reduce

some of the stuff that has been

going on in the community

recently.”

Flyers will soon be delivered

among residents about how they

can donate.

In the meantime, email the

Programme

a hit with

children

• From page 1

“The programme has been a

success from day one,” said city

council animal management officer

Kym Manuel.

From a pilot programme

at Papanui Library, it quickly

expanded to three locations

each Tuesday, Wednesday and

Thursday during school terms,

with sessions booking out weeks

in advance.

“Our guiding principle was

that the child’s confidence and

enjoyment of reading be enhanced

and their overall experience

with the dog be a happy one,

as many children have had scary

experiences with dogs in the

past,” said Manuel.

Five dogs are involved in the

programme with another two in

training. All are chosen for their

exemplary behaviour around

children.

Riley and Keegan are sold on

the programme.

“I like that you get to pat the

dogs. I like that there’s all different

types of dogs,” they said.

And it has helped with their

reading, with teachers noticing

improvements in the pair since

they started taking part.

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.

HOME & HEATING

Get the balance

right this winter

Enviro Master has been helping

Cantabrians get the balance right when it

comes to choosing the perfect heat pump or

air conditioning system for their home or

office since 2002.

Their team of expert sales people, qualified

electricians, heating and refrigeration

engineers, help to supply and install

Christchurch’s widest range of heat pumps,

and because they have no affiliation with any

one brand, you can be assured their advice

on the benefits and differences between each

product is unbiased.

They will recommend the most energyefficient

and cost-effective system for your

individual situation, and will have you

regulating the heat in your home or office in

no time.

Nowadays, customers are often wanting

whole home solutions to be able to maintain

even temperatures throughout the home both

in Winter and Summer. This can be achieved

by using ducted systems or multi systems

and Enviro Master are experts in designing,

installing and commissioning these systems.

Help is currently available with a

government subsidy covering 80 per cent of

the cost of a new heat pump up to $3000.

The subsidy is part of the Warmer Kiwi

Homes initiative and is available to Home

owner/occupiers with a Community Services

Card, a SuperGold combo card or who live in

a low-income area as determined by deciles

8-10 on the New Zealand Deprivation Index.

The applicant’s home must also have been

built before 2008, have insulation up to code

(insulation subsidies also available) and have

no fixed heating in a living area, such as an

existing operational heat pump or fireplace.

With new regulations now in place for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals, it’s

time to ensure you are meeting the new

standards.

Inadequate heating and ventilation can

lead to mould growth and dampness in your

property, leading to costlier maintenance

and an unhealthy living environment.

Providing a fixed heater with a higher heat

output and lower running costs, like a heat

pump, will enable your tenants to heat the

area effectively. Enviro Master are well

experienced with the Tenancy Services

software to ensure that you are meeting your

requirements.

To ensure you choose the right system

for your home or business, one of Enviro

Master’s experts will visit to assess your

individual situation, offer advice and

answer any questions you may have. This

consultation is at no cost to the customer

and is always provided before a heat pump is

installed.

Anyone wondering about their eligibility

for a subsidised heat pump are welcome to

get in touch for details and help with the

application process. To find out more, call

Enviro Master on (03) 366 0525 or visit

their website www.enviromaster.co.nz

The importance

of air quality

The quality of the air we breathe affects

our health and ability to perform. We

breathe in and out approximately 20,000

litres of air every day. It is therefore very

important to ensure good air quality

indoors through adequate ventilation.

Ventilation is the process of air exchange

to provide the necessary air quality that

meets the needs of the occupants for clean,

fresh air. Low oxygen with high carbon

dioxide causes stuffiness in the room

and occupants can feel drowsy. Invisible

harmful substances like a high content

of dust and tobacco smoke are harmful

and can cause various diseases. Even bad

smells can cause discomfort or irritate the

nervous system.

In summer, it’s easy to open windows

for cross ventilation, however as winter

approaches, we start to shut up out houses

to trap in the heat and as a result, air

quality can decline.

Ventilation includes

both the exchange of air

to the outside as well as

circulation of air within

the building. It is one of

the most important factors

for maintaining acceptable

indoor air quality in

buildings. Filtered air

supply for summer and

filtered and warmed air in

winter creates a healthy

environment in which

to live and work. In cases with poor

or insufficient air intake from outside,

the oxygen content decreases, humidity

and dustiness levels increase. If exhaust

ventilation is not provided or it is not

effective, polluted air, smells, humidity

and harmful substances are not removed.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required air exchange for

your building requirement. Smooth-Air

offers a wide range of ventilation

equipment, from air vents to ducting

for fans, for both the commercial and

domestic markets.

They have an extensive range of fans

and ventilation components in-store but

they can also provide innovative solutions

tailored to differing requirements.

Spreading

kindness

through craft

Crafting For a Cause is a group of

crafters meeting weekly at WEA to

create things people need. These clever

crafters knit, crochet, sew, and repurpose

materials generously donated to WEA

Canterbury. Creating social capital,

this group are helping reduce stash

cupboards and keep materials from

going into landfill, while sharing skills

and ideas.

Polar fleece has been turned into

kitten blankets for the SPCA and over

50 children’s beanies and mittens for

It Takes a Village, who told them “The

mittens have been a life saver for our

families”. Wool yarn has been knitted

up as hats, scarves and baby blankets;

handmade paper has been turned into

Thank You cards; cotton yarn knitted

and crocheted into dishcloths, facecloths

and cat toys; curtains recycled into tote

bags and net curtains into vege bags and

laundry bags and sold as a fundraiser to

members of the WEA.

To find out more or join the group,

visit www.cwea.org.nz or drop into

the WEA office at 59 Gloucester Street

between 9:30 am and 3:00 pm Monday

to Friday.

Our vision is simple.

To be relatable and genuine home specialists within

our chosen communities.

We operate with complete transparency, translating

into the best outcome for you and your well being. We

are about building alifetime of strong relationships.

You matter, we care.

A L O O K A T T H E MA R K E T | E D D I E & KI E R E N

What we are seeing on the ground:

At the beginning of the year, we witnessed the strongest

market Christchurch has ever seen. We had the lowest

volume on the market since post -earthquake and the

market was aflood with buyers. This drove prices up at an

incredible rate. Seven months on to July 2021 there are a

record low number of properties on the market, however

the ‘flood’ of buyers has somewhat decreased from the

start of this year. The media is playing their part to try to ‘

cool’ the housing market with alot of ‘ click bait’ but

ultimately prices are still rising, just not at the rate they

were at the end of 2020 to early 2021.

Regardless of what your plans may be with your HOME, there

has never been abetter market to know where the value of

your HOME sits. Whether it be to use your existing home as

leverage to complete that renovation you have always wanted

to complete, to purchase an investment or holiday home, or to

merely know what you’re sitting on for your retirement.

Whatever your plans are, we are here to help you on your

journey whenever you may need us.

For friendly, genuine advice, contact aHOME specialist today.
