Silver lining for Sue

ATHLETES: Irienne Ameye and Sue Greet (right) compete in the Ryman Olympics virtual cycling final.

ANTHONY Wilding

Retirement Village’s Sue Greet

pushed for cycling glory as part

of the Olympics@Ryman finals.

While Sue finished with a

silver, she had the leader of the

virtual race in her sights over

the last kilometre or so, and the

volume of applause from other

Anthony Wilding residents grew

as she drew near to the 13.5km

finish mark.

She and fellow village resident

Irienne Ameye sat side by side on

their bikes. The cadence levels on

the pedals were high, and there

were a few puffs and requests for

water as the competitors covered

the kilometres.

Lower speed

limits raise

commuting

time

concerns

• By Samantha Mythen

LINWOOD-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham wants the city

council to keep Humphreys Drive

at 70km/h.

He is concerned the proposed

speed reduction will increase

commuter times for motorists

driving into the city.

“Given the recent speed reductions

from 50km/h to 30km/h

through the Woolston Village,

transit times for residents commuting

to the city are likely to

increase,” he said.

“The route via Humphreys

Drive provides an alternative and

quicker option for many coastal

residents.”

The city council is proposing

to reduce the current 70km/h

speed to 60km/h in an effort to

make it safer for both cyclists and

motorists who share the road.

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said the speed limit reduction

would also “better reflect the safe

and appropriate speed recommended

by current speed management

guidance from Waka

Kotahi New Zealand Transport

Agency.”

Food fight to figure out facts WATER

• By Bea Gooding

FOUR CASHMERE 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 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

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.

In Brief

MAIN UPGRADES

Traffic management is now in

place along Eastern Tce, Beckenham,

for the renewal of water

supply mains. The work, between

Birdwood Ave and Corson Ave,

is to replace and upgrade the

existing water mains and lateral

connections that have reached

the end of their lifecycle. The

upgrades are taking place during

weekdays and are expected to be

completed by late October.

DONATIONS NEEDED

The Hoon Hay Food Bank has put

out an urgent call for tinned food

to meet the high demand of food

parcels it provides to the community.

Two drop-off locations have

been set up. Donations are being

accepted at the Rowley Resource

Centre on weekdays between 9am

and 2pm, and between 8.30am

and 5.30pm at Unichem Lincoln

Road Pharmacy.

REGISTRATIONS OPEN

Registrations are now open for

residents who want to get involved

in the opening of Te Pou Toetoe:

Linwood Pool on October 2 and

3. Alongside the facility’s official

opening, a big community event

at Linwood Park is being planned,

complete with performances, food

stalls and fun activities. To run

Safe cycle routes a priority

1/2 PRICE

OR LESS

•From page 1

In the past five years, there

have been six recorded crashes

along the 70km/h section of

Humphreys Drive.

Two resulted in serious

injury, two resulted in minor

injury, and two resulted in no

injury.

One of the serious crashes

involved a cyclist.

The proposal comes as the

Rapanui-Shag Rock cycleway

will be completely constructed

by mid-2022.

Thomas said the city council

had not considered putting

in lights along the bike path

in the nearby Charlesworth

Reserve, which is used as an

alternative during the day for

cyclists who would usually

travel along Humphreys Drive.

“The intention is for Humphreys

Drive to remain

as the night-time cycle

route,” he said.

“Improvements to the

existing on-road cycle

lanes along Humphreys

Drive include street

lighting assessments/

improvements, two sets

of pedestrian and cycle

signalised crossings, widening

of the existing road shoulders

and other safety improvement

features.”

Latham said it concerned

him the city council’s intention

was for Humphreys Drive to

remain a route for cyclists,

Darrell

Latham

“particularly given a serious

injury accident and after

spending ratepayers dollars

creating a safer alternative

route through

Charlesworth Reserve.”

“It’s nonsensical to

have two routes as we

have the opportunity

to keep cyclists 100 per

cent safe on a dedicated

pathway,” he said.

He said night-time

lighting should be installed in

Charlesworth Reserve, making

it safer for cyclists rather than

encouraging continued use on

Humphreys Drive.

“Safety is of paramount

importance for all road users,”

he said.

The city council is also

proposing that Tidal View’s

current 50km/h speed should

be reduced to 30km/h.

Public consultation is open

for the proposed speed reductions.

It closes on August 24.

Businesses along both

Humphreys Drive and Tidal

View have been asked to

share their perspective on the

proposal, alongside residents

in Redcliffs, Ferrymead,

Brookhaven, Mt Pleasant,

Sumner and Heathcote.

Readers respond to

the removal of city

council bins at their

local parks in favour of

BigBelly bins, and how

it has impacted their

neighbourhood

We live next to Hoon Hay

Park. Six bins were sensibly

placed around the park, but

now there is only one, and

like you, we see rubbish and

doggy-do left where the old

bins used to be.

Whoever thought that this

would be a better system, is

sadly mistaken. When people

go to our parks the challenge

is to spot or find the one rubbish

bin.

Yes, we know the new

bins are bigger and are solarpowered,

and that they would

cost more than the old bins,

but there is a need for more

bins placed at the entrances

to our parks for the hygienic

collection of rubbish. – Gavin

Stuart

I have no objections to the

new BigBelly bins in Hansen

Park, in fact, I think they

are better, being bigger and

covered.

However, I am dismayed

about the placement of them.

Both of the bins are located at

the St Martins/Rudolf Steiner

School end, one near the

entrance and one at the sports

pavilion. There is no bin at

the Opawa entrance and there

was previously one at the

footbridge.

Elderly people or anyone

walking their dogs from the

Opawa entrance are faced

with a very long walk in order

to use the bin at the St Martins

entrance.

Not everyone walks the

full circuit of the park and I

would have thought it would

be logical to place a bin at both

of the main entrances plus,

the sports pavilion. – Cheryl

ESSIE SUMMERS VILLAGE HAS

A WONDERFUL COMMUNITY

Essie Summers Retirement Village’s residents

and staff form a cosy, caring but very active

community, that enjoys all the benefits of

being close to the heart of Christchurch.

New residents find many positives living in

the village and often have an affinity with

the area. In the village there is the chance to

relax or get involved in the latest activity or

Happy Hour event.

The village lounge is well used by residents

and their visiting families. A sunny atrium

with a gorgeous range of plants and lovely

seating areas offers another ideal spot for

a catch-up. The village amenities include

a lounge and bar area, pool table, hair and

beauty salon, and an upstairs library with an

outdoor area.

The leadership team includes Village

Manager Rosemary Deane and Clinical

Manager Melanie Asuncion, each overseeing

dedicated teams.

Rosemary says the village is close to the

best of Beckenham and is in one of the

best locations in Christchurch, particularly

with its easy access to city entertainment,

amenities, and the hospital.

There is a Countdown supermarket across

the road, bus stops, and residents can drive

or take the village van on outings to the city

and beyond.

The staff are truly dedicated to the residents

and village, with some having been at

Essie Summers since it originally opened

as Beckenham Courts back in 1991,

Rosemary says.

Melanie says there are many different

aspects to her role including getting to know

the residents and their families. During her

10 years at the village she has loved the

chance to get to know families as part of a

role that oversees residents’ health needs

and the wellbeing of nurses.

“You build a rapport with the family

members, which is really good. That opens

up lots of communication.

“We have fun in the village. It’s never boring.”

Arti Karan, Activities & Lifestyle Coordinator,

leads a comprehensive activities programme.

Both staff and residents love their day to

day interaction, and there is a lot of fun and

laughter, she says. Often the townhouse and

serviced apartment residents will join in an

outing. For example, a day trip to Hanmer to

soak in the pools and then go shopping.

Sales Advisor Lynne Bretherton loves

helping new residents move and she enjoys

continuing the relationship as they become

part of the village community.

“The village has got a really nice feel to it,

it’s all very inclusive. The setting residents

enjoy is wonderful,” Lynne says.

Chris Parker, Lead Maintenance and Ross

Sutherland, Head Gardener enjoy chatting

with residents as they go about their

daily work.

Ross says as the sole village gardener, he

likes to introduce new elements to the

outdoor settings each season. For example,

he is now introducing polyanthus and

dianthus flowers. Gardening is a lovely point

of contact and discussion with the residents.

Chris, Lead Maintenance, loves helping the

residents, even with something as simple as

connecting their TVs. He does everything

from fixing pieces of art to residents’

apartment walls, and putting up shelves, to

liaising with the tradesmen and contractors

to ensure the village is very well maintained

and runs smoothly.

Essie Summers Retirement Village has

happy residents, and caring staff, creating a

wonderful community to be a part of.

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

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.

Ryman Olympics sees silver in cycling for Sue

• From page 1

Both had partners ‘trackside’

to give them support. Ron

Collyer kept Sue focused, while

Tony Ameye gave constant vocal

support to Irienne.

Many of Ryman’s 43 villages

participated in the cycling heats

and finals. Competing on the

course together, they were helped

by some amazing ‘virtual race’

technology.

Both Sue and Irienne are

keen cyclists and belong to

Christchurch-based clubs. Sue

belongs to the ‘Russley Rims’ and

has travelled throughout New

Zealand to take part in cycling

tours, while Irienne belongs to

the U3A (University of the Third

Age) group.

Sue has a brother in Rangiora

and will regularly cycle there, or

along a cycle trail to Kaiapoi – a

60km round trip.

“I use my bike like a car. From

here I go out along the motorway

(on the cycle trail) and go right

out to Rangiora.”

Sue says she has extended tours

planned in both the Pareora and

Lake Dunstan areas. She grew

up on a farm near Lismore in

Mid Canterbury, about halfway

between Mayfield and Hinds.

Ahead of the final, Anthony

Wilding Village manager Sharon

Armstrong thanked both the

residents and supporters for

taking part in the virtual road

cycling race.

“We ask that you enter into

this brand new experience

guided by the Olympic values

of respect, friendship and

excellence. Give it your best!”

At the end of the race, Sue said

her strategy had been to “just

put my head down. I think I’d

got used to the gears. I just went

for it.”

COMPETING: The cyclists and their supporters: Irienne and

Tony Ameye, Ryman activities and lifestyle co-ordinator Lin

Smith, Sue Greet and Ron Collyer.

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

simply can’t shake off.

“Funding is drying up – since

Covid, applying for funding is

less successful these days.”

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.

heating diesel in each urban centre are

drawn from the company’s extensive

SOUTHERN VIEW

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

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.

zone control.
