Mixed response to new parking

restrictions for shopping area

• By Fiona Ellis

PARKING restrictions

outside a block of shops

are set to be implemented

following a meeting of the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board on Monday.

The change is looked on

with mixed feelings by those

in business in the Kendal Ave

shopping area.

The board resolved to install

three 15-minute parking spaces,

nine 60-minute parking spaces,

four 120-minute parking

spaces, and a mobility park

in the currently unrestricted

parking space.

Feedback was sought by

affected businesses prior to the

decision, and the seven formal

responses were summarised in a

report in the meeting agenda.

Two supported the changes,

while five did not.

Concrete Solutions objected to

time-restricted parking because

it would make parking difficult

for their employees.

“As this is a busy office block,

limiting the parking outside to

120 minutes is unreasonable and

will just add to the stress and

congestion.”

He did not think there was a

Slightly altering the plan

would allow another car park

submission said.

the mobility park to allow one

more park to be created.

The board decided creating

more parks would make

the other parks too small. A

raised kerb also prevented

Page’s suggestion from being

implemented.

The changes would come into

effect when signage and road

markings were in place.

The board also requested

that the city council resurface

the parking area at the

same time as the changes

are made.

Food fight to figure out facts

• By Bea Gooding

FOUR HIGH School students

are on a mission to educate

children about what really goes

into their food.

Food Fight is a fun, educational

card game created by

Cashmere year 13 students

Oakley Inkersell, Rosa Kelly,

Aljaž Smrekar and Jack Carran,

in response to child obesity in

New Zealand.

The Young Enterprise Scheme

business studies project has been

such a hit in the last few months

that it can now be found in selected

supermarkets and schools.

Said Inkersell, Food Fight chief

executive: “When I was younger

I was overweight and I didn’t

know anything about nutrition.

I wish I had a resource like Food

Fight to educate me as a kid and

to know what it did to my body.”

Kelly said there was not

enough education in schools in

relation to nutrition.

“It’s one of the core problems

for the child obesity crisis in New

Zealand,” she said.

“With this game, we feel like

it’s a fun and interactive way to

teach kids about nutrition and in

schools, children will have more

control over their health.”

The students wanted to promote

balance – no food had a

positive or negative connotation

Smrekar show

in the game, rather it was about

presenting the facts and allowing

children to make educated

choices about their diet.

Each of the 52 cards incorporated

te reo Māori and contained

a picture of food typically eaten

by children, such as fruit, sandwiches,

mince pies or ice cream.

What followed was a real

breakdown of nutrients in the

food, including calories and fat

and sugar content.

Food Fight used this information

to form a game in a similar

style to the Top Trumps card

game. The aim is to have the

most cards received off of other

players by winning rounds.

Said Oakley: “You win rounds

by battling with the categories on

the cards, which are calories, fat,

protein, carbs, sugar and price.

The person with the highest or

lowest statistic depending on

what category wins that round.”

In spite of the Food Fight team

heading off to Canterbury University

next year, they were still

keen on seeing the business grow.

So far about 120 decks have

been sold to parents, teachers

and businesses, with growing

interest from doctors who saw it

as a tool that could be prescribed.

“We’ve also been contacted

by parents of children with type

1 diabetes who said that Food

Fight has been perfect for helping

their kids learn about how much

sugar is in their favourite food,”

Oakley said.

CREATIVE: A design by Janice Elliott is exhibited in the 2018 World of WearableArt show. ​

Competition an exciting challenge

• From page 1

The purpose of using four machines

was to connect the piece

to her heritage.

“My families were milliners

and dressmakers. It’s definitely in

my genes.”

The unnamed piece was made

of fabric decorated with free motion

embroidery, she said.

The piece was the result

of about six months of hard

work over evenings, weekends,

and whenever time could be

snatched.

Even while in the car en route

to Wellington to hand-deliver her

creation the day before entries

closed, there was still time to pull

out a needle and thread.

“I did a bit of stitching on the

way up. My partner drove and I

sewed.”

It was her third time entering

the competition, which was

challenging but also exciting, she

said.

She would be attending the

Wellington award show in early

October, and looked forward

to seeing other designs, which

would debut on September 30.

“You’re surrounded by creativity,

it’s a magnificent outlet for

people like ourselves.”

Elliott also made the finals

with a creation made of leather.

She had plenty of experience

behind her.

“I’ve been doing it now just

over 10 years,” Elliot said.

It took a lot of work to create

something to exhibit and she

thought she was finished with the

competition.

However, she was unable to

stop finding fresh inspiration.

“I’ll see something and think,

wow, I could make something

with that.

“I’ll always be creative. It’s

good to be creative.”

Competition founder Dame

Suzie Moncrieff said judges

would have a difficult task choosing

their favourite designers.

The competition would have

three recurring categories,

Aotearoa, avant-garde, and open.

It would also have the three

new themes of architecture,

the Elizabethan era and monochrome.

“The skills, wide range of

materials and techniques used

in creating their work is breathtaking.”

Overcoming demons to help those

with mental illness and disability

Wayne Gibson’s battle

with his own demons

pushed him to help

people with disabilities

and mental illnesses

experiencing longterm

unemployment.

The PEEEP Trust yard

manager speaks to

reporter Bea Gooding

about finding your voice

in the face of adversity

Wayne Gibson is still healing

from the wounds that depression

left behind nearly three decades

ago.

But in spite of the stigma men

face about their mental health –

both nowadays and back in the

1990s – Gibson has learned to

cope, coming out the other side

of it a better person.

It is a message of hope he

now instils in the volunteers

he leads at PEEEP Trust, who

are experiencing long-term

unemployment as a result of

mental illness or disability.

The People Empowerment and

Environmental Enhancement

Programme is a safe space for

people to gain skills leading to

job opportunities that might not

have been there otherwise.

“Our jobs give them a bit of

a lift in life, makes them feel

important, and builds up their

confidence and self-esteem,” said

Gibson.

“A lot of the guys that come in

here are really reserved and not

sure where they’re going in life.

My job is to make sure they leave

here happy every day, feeling

more positive about themselves.”

The trust has provided

training and work experience for

unemployed people since 1993,

with a focus on improving the

local environment.

Referred from agencies

such as the Ministry of Social

Development, all volunteers

FRESH START: After turning his own life around, PEEEP yard manager Wayne Gibson now

have experienced long-term

unemployment.

Many are recovering from

drug or alcohol addictions, have

physical or social disabilities,

or are dealing with mental

illnesses.

PEEEP offers stability, purpose

and belonging, contact with

nature, teamwork experience,

and staff encouragement

through contracted work.

It could be graffiti removal

for the city council one day,

grounds maintenance at parks,

businesses or homes the next,

or beach clean-ups and dune

management.

Said Gibson: “It’s the simplest

of things they can lack that we

help them with. Most have never

used a computer so we show

them how to go on Google –

things people would take for

granted.”

As yard manager, Gibson loves

balancing his time between coordinating

future jobs from the

office and working side-by-side

with the volunteers.

After all, he has been in

their shoes, starting as a casual

volunteer eight years ago

mowing lawns at the former

Queen Elizabeth II Park while

battling his own demons.

Before PEEEP, Gibson was a

labourer.

“I enjoy helping people less

fortunate than myself. I’ve been

in a position in my younger years

where I’ve been down that road,

where I’ve been very depressed

and low,” he said.

“It’s not a good place to be. If

I can help somebody to get out

of that zone, I feel like my job is

done.”

Gibson eventually worked his

way up to become the supervisor,

before accepting the manager

role earlier this year.

The new role was a full-circle

moment for the father of three

because the supervisor who

initially hired him happened to

be his son Tristan.

“When I first started here as

a casual he was my boss, but

only until 4 o’clock – I stipulated

that.”

Eight years later the tables have

turned, with Gibson becoming

his son’s boss.

Having a close working and

personal relationship did not

get in the way of putting the

volunteers first.

It was about finding the right

time to “take my boss hat off and

put my father hat on,” and vice

versa.

“It’s great, we’re more like best

friends and we work really well

together as a team,” Gibson said.

“We don’t bring any issues we

have into work, we talk about

it after work. We don’t want

the volunteers to pick up any

negative vibes.”

A growing reputation has

meant the number of referrals

has climbed, with many more on

the waiting list.

Along with the trustees, the

team of three-to-four staff work

alongside eight volunteers at a

time.

Gibson has always been a

“people person at heart,” but

empowering others to find their

voices for the first time made

all the challenges he faced worth

it.

“They don’t know it, but I get a

lot from them as well.”

He recalled with pride a young

man who went from being

socially withdrawn to securing

an apprenticeship on his

own, thanks to newfound

confidence.

“We carried him under our

wing, and over a few months,

we lifted his spirits so much you

couldn’t keep him quiet,” said

Gibson.

“This place helped him so

much he doesn’t get on the Xbox

anymore now that he has a job.”

Having been encouraged by

his own co-workers, friends and

family to take on a leadership

role for the first time, Gibson

could relate.

“My self-esteem was a bit

low before I became manager, I

didn’t think I would cope.”

The macho mentality expected

of men, especially in the past,

made it difficult to address the

trauma he experienced sooner.

“I was in a very bad situation

and I was a broken man. Back

then, a man was a man,” he said.

“It’s not really a thing you need

to hide anymore.”

Gibson could spend all day

tinkering away on one of his

muscle cars if he did not have a

trust to worry about.

In spite of his brighter outlook

on life, there are concerns he

Grant to help more students

get involved in native planting

A CHARITABLE trust that

is working with 16 schools to

populate parts of the former red

zone with native plants is getting

a $61,400 grant to expand its

operation.

The money will come from

the Red Zones Transitional Use

Fund that was set up by the city

council to provide support to

projects and events

Ahead of their longer-term

regeneration, the projects will

help create activity and vibrancy

in the former red zone areas.

Some of the schools involved

include Linwood College, Rawhiti

Primary, St Andrew’s College,

Burnside Primary, Christ’s College,

Avonside Girls’ High School,

Christchurch South Intermediate

and St Margaret’s College.

“The Eco-Action Nursery

Trust is doing an amazing job at

both connecting young people

with the former red zone area

along the Ōtākaro Avon River

Corridor and educating them

about the process for endemic

native revegetation,’’ sustainability

and community resilience

chairwoman and city councillor

VOLUNTEERS: The Eco-Action Nursery Trust, which works with 16 schools across the city,

has received a grant, allowing it to teach more young people about native planting.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE ​

Sara Templeton said.

The trust was set up two years

ago.

It collects endemic native plant

seeds, under permit from Travis

Wetland and Riccarton Bush,

propagates seedlings and grows

plants at a central nursery at

Christ’s College, using volunteer

school students and supervisors.

It is working with the schools

to help them establish satellite

nurseries, providing start-up kits

of 500 to 1000 plants and all the

equipment they need to successfully

grow them.

Eco-Action Nursery Trust

chairwoman David Newton

said the grant will allow it to get

more schools and young people

involved in the growing and

planting process.

“The native trees and plants

that are being grown by the

students through the nursery

programme provide muchneeded

food and habitats for

native birds and lizards, which is

another important focus for us,’’

Newton said.

The trust has a five-year lease

on a parcel of land off Chimera

Cres, in the Ōtākaro Avon River

Corridor which it has started

planting with the help of volunteers.

It also has a lease on another

area of land off Gayhurst Tce

that will be ready for planting in

winter next year.

It has eight schools waiting to

join its programme and expects

to propagate 20,000 plants this

year through its nursery programme.

Next year the aim is to propagate

30,000.

HOME & HEATING

Keep cosy with

RD Petroleum

this winter

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

NOR’WEST NEWS

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

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.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd

now for your free, no obligation quote and

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor

ground moisture barrier needs.

Zone Control for your

Ducted heat pump

Ducted heat pumps are a highly efficient

way to heat (or cool) your home. The

air from the heat pump is ducted to

several rooms or zones in your house.

Using a zone control system makes your

ducted heat pump even more efficient, by

specifying the amount of heat required

in each area, so not wasting energy to

overheat or overcool any room.

The AirTouch4 zone control system

from Smooth-Air takes ducted heat pump

air zoning to a whole new level of comfort

and energy efficiency.

AirTouch4 - The Ultimate Zone

Control

Have total control of your comfort zone:

AirTouch4 lets everyone enjoy a different

level of conditioned air in the room they

are in.

Save money on the power bill, without

compromising on comfort, by only

running the heating or cooling where

you need it with Smart Zoning. Plus with

runtime tracking, energy and airflow

management technology, you can enjoy

greater efficiency and savings from your

family’s ducted heat pump.

The AirTouch4 can also connect to

Google Home and Amazon Alexa.

Not every home is designed equal. Not

every room is either. 60 % Temperatures can

often fluctuate from one room to the next

because of sunlight, room activity or other

factors.

With AirTouch4’s Individual

Temperature Control Technology (ITC),

the AirTouch monitors temperatures

and smartly adjusts airflow as needed

around your home with the aid of multiple

wireless temperature sensors instead of a

single sensor in one location. When some

rooms get too hot or cold, the AirTouch

will adjust airflow to maintain your desired

temperature, without wasting conditioned

air on rooms already comfortable.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

NOR’WEST NEWS

We’re rolling out

COVID-19 vaccinations

to Aotearoa New Zealand

Everyone aged 60+ can book their vaccination now

New Zealanders aged 60+ can book now at BookMyVaccine.nz or call

0800 28 29 26. If you’re in one of our priority groups (Groups 1, 2 and 3)

and haven’t been vaccinated, don’t worry, you can still make your booking.

We’re rolling out Group 4 in age bands

Everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand will be able to get the vaccine – it’s free and there’s enough vaccine for everyone.

With more than 2.5 million people aged under 65, to make the process flow smoothly, we’re breaking it down by age bands.

We’re starting with the oldest and working our way down to the youngest.

Important dates

28 July Everyone 60+ Can book now

11 August Everyone 55+ Bookings open

Bookings will open soon to the rest of Aotearoa in age bands,

from oldest to youngest. Remember, once you’re eligible to be

vaccinated, you can book at any time. There’s no cut off.

60 +

55 + 45 + 35 + 16 +

When it’s your time to book a vaccination

Step 1: Receiving an invitation

When you’re eligible, you’ll receive a letter inviting you to book

at BookMyVaccine.nz. We’ll follow up with an email and text.

Step 2: Make your booking

Once you’ve received your invitation, or when your age band is

open, go to BookMyVaccine.nz to book your appointments.

If you’re unable to book online, you can ring the COVID Vaccination

Healthline on 0800 28 29 26 (8am to 8pm, 7 days). We’ll make the

booking for you and answer any questions. Interpreters are available

if you need them.

You can expect to have your first vaccination six to eight weeks after

you make your booking. Depending on where and when you’d like to

be vaccinated, you might find an appointment earlier. You’ll need

to leave at least three weeks between your first and second doses.

Step 3: Get your vaccination

We’ll send a reminder the day before each appointment. It’s very

important to get two doses of the vaccine – this will give you the

best protection.

Other ways to get vaccinated

There are other ways to be vaccinated, including workplace

vaccinations and other vaccination events around the country.

In many remote rural communities, we will vaccinate all age groups

at the same time.

Many GPs are also providing COVID-19 vaccinations and are taking

bookings directly. To find out if your GP is offering this service,

visit healthpoint.co.nz/covid-19-vaccination

The stronger our immunity, the greater our possibilities.
