bottles containing high end<br />

vodka are being marketed and<br />

soldaroundAustralasia and<br />

the UK, including in top<br />

diversified from its usual<br />

signwriting and designwork to<br />

be apart of the promotion of a<br />

premium New Zealand<br />

product.<br />

Justin said the distillery had<br />

approached him about the<br />

possibility of printing directly<br />

The settlement occurred at a<br />

The structure has since been<br />

proof­loaded and assessed by<br />

engineers monitoring the<br />

structure closely through<br />

multiple surveys, detailed<br />

structure inspections and<br />

electronic (real time)<br />

monitoring.<br />

thestructure was safefor<br />

continued use.<br />

‘‘Overthe last couple of<br />

months, Waka Kotahiand<br />

More clinics needed for covid vaccinations<br />

TONI.WILLIAMS<br />

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz<br />

Growing demand for covid<br />

vaccinations across Mid<br />

Canterbury has officials<br />

working to get additional<br />

clinics up and running.<br />

The district currently has five<br />

covid vaccination clinics<br />

operating in <strong>Ashburton</strong> and one<br />

in Methven.<br />

But Canterbury District<br />

Health Board senior<br />

responsible officer for the<br />

Covid­19 response Dr Helen<br />

Skinner said more were<br />

planned.<br />

‘‘An additional four general<br />

practices and pharmacies in<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> have indicated their<br />

interest and have started the<br />

process towards becoming<br />

vaccination clinics,’’ she said.<br />

There was also amobile<br />

clinic for the Pasifika<br />

community planned in<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> this weekend.<br />

‘‘Because of the current<br />

demand for vaccinations in Mid<br />

Canterbury, we’re working with<br />

the <strong>Ashburton</strong> District Council,<br />

local community and health<br />

providers to provide additional<br />

pop­up clinics,’’ she said.<br />

In <strong>Ashburton</strong> there are six<br />

clinics;Eastfield Health, Life<br />

Pharmacy <strong>Ashburton</strong>, Methven<br />

MedicalCentre, Three Rivers<br />

Health,Tinwald Medical<br />

Centre and Wises Pharmacy.<br />

Everest climber inspires youngsters<br />

TONI.WILLIAMS<br />

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz<br />

MikeRead has been influencingthe next<br />

generation of adventurers.<br />

TheHinds farmer, is alsoakeen<br />

adventurer, and most recently has been<br />

takingonthe seven summits of the world;<br />

an organised mountaineering adventure<br />

with others taking on seven of thehighest<br />

peaks on each continent aroundthe<br />

world.<br />

He has done fivebut covid has stopped<br />

himclimbing the last two; Vinson Massif<br />

(Antarctica) and PuncakJaya or<br />

CarstenszPyramid (PapuaNew Guinea).<br />

Mikeshared candid stories about his<br />

2018 climb to Mt Everest, the highest<br />

mountain in the world, this week to<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Scouts, theirleaders and<br />

parents at Mania­O­Roto Scout Park.<br />

He showed the scouts photos and video<br />

footage, and also had some of his survival<br />

kitwith him, including his most trusty<br />

pieceofequipment ­his axe.<br />

And explained some of the challenges<br />

of living for two andhalf months at high<br />

altitude, theaffect of the lack of oxygen<br />

on the body andarounddecision making,<br />

clothing needs, and dietand toiletry<br />

requirements in temperatures as low as<br />

minus 50 degrees at night, and as high as<br />

40 degrees by day.<br />

It took two weeks to walk to base camp,<br />

the equivalent distance from <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

to Christchurch, which allowed the body<br />

to acclimatise to living at high altitude,<br />

he said.<br />

One of the side effectsofbeing at high<br />

altitude was alackofappetite ­the<br />

digestive system slowed down,and you<br />

hadtoforce yourself to eat, he said.<br />

Mikelived on Jelly Babies, which was<br />

theonlysugary thing he could eatatthe<br />

time butnow he can not stand to look at<br />

them.<br />

He started the climb weighing 80kg,<br />

and by the time he finished he weighed<br />

63kg.<br />

‘‘Our muscles and ourbody, starts<br />

deteriorating quite fast. As we get higher<br />

(up the mountain) our bodies actually<br />

start dying, we can’t be at the altitudes<br />

that we are for too long.’’<br />

The mountain is unforgiving, hesaid.<br />

There wereseven deaths on the<br />

mountain during the2018climbing<br />

season.<br />

Mike, 36,has traversed through<br />

blizzards on theDenali mountainrange<br />

in Alaska, whichismore than6000m<br />

above sea level (almost twice the height<br />

of Aoraki/Mt Cook), crossed the tropical<br />

grasslandsofthe African Savanna,<br />

crossed deserts, lived in jungles and<br />

made friends from around the world.<br />

‘‘When Iwas acub and scout Iused to<br />

dream about going around the worldand<br />

doing awesomecool stuff,’’hesaid.<br />

He started his adult life working on the<br />

family arable and horticulture farm and<br />

one day, sitting on the tractor, realised<br />

he hadnot fulfilled his childhood dream.<br />

He took the leapand booked in his first<br />

adventure.<br />

It was 2013 and he hasnot looked back.<br />

Men’s health important to Greg<br />

MICK.JENSEN<br />

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz<br />

Greg Dunne is new to town and<br />

wants to normalise counselling<br />

in thecommunity.<br />

As acounsellorhehas a<br />

particular interest in men’s<br />

health and works primarily<br />

from cognitive therapy<br />

modality.<br />

He strongly believes that<br />

learnedbehaviours and<br />

patternsofthought canbe<br />

changed.<br />

‘‘It takesalot of courage, and<br />

more so for men, to admit that<br />

things are not going well in<br />

their lives and to reach out for<br />

help.<br />

‘‘Many men have that stiff<br />

upper lip and bottlethingsup,<br />

which is nothealthy.’’<br />

Greg says male mental<br />

health needs addressing<br />

because suiciderates in New<br />

Zealandare far too high<br />

He had worked withfarmers<br />

and other meninthe North<br />

Island,and isolation andlongheld<br />

family valuesand<br />

practices were, in part, the<br />

reasons for depression.<br />

In his experience of dealing<br />

with adolescents andyoung<br />

men they didnot always fully<br />

understand the reasonthey<br />

were coming for counselling.<br />

‘‘Thestarting pointis<br />

helpingpeople to gettoknow<br />

themselves better and as they<br />

reveal facts abouttheir<br />

background,homevaluesand<br />

life,apictureisbuilt up.<br />

‘‘With morerevealed,<br />

communication improves and<br />

help can be given to bring<br />

aboutpositivechange.’’<br />

Raising self­esteem and<br />

confidenceweretwo areas<br />

where counselling could help.<br />

The 58­year old, afather of<br />

five, says he sawhis role as the<br />

facilitatorand the ‘‘co­pilot’’<br />

on the journey.<br />

People are theauthors of<br />

their own destiny, he says.<br />

‘‘It’s often amatter of<br />

drawingout negative thoughts<br />

and processes andworking<br />

withcognitivetherapytools to<br />

help people achieve better and<br />

healthier lives which in turn<br />

help themrealizetheir full<br />

Greg Dunne is new<br />

to <strong>Ashburton</strong> and<br />

keen to share his<br />

counselling skills<br />

and knowledge.<br />

potential.’’<br />

Greg says throughhis studies<br />

andbydrawingonhis ownlife<br />

experience he understoodthe<br />

powerspoken wordsand<br />

thoughts could have on the<br />

quality of our life.<br />

Counselling could help<br />

people with personal and<br />

relationship issues, mental<br />

health andproblem solving.<br />

One­on­one sessions and<br />

family counselling sessions,<br />

typically 50 minuteslong,<br />

could tackle arange of areas<br />

including addiction,anxiety,<br />

‘‘This supports comments<br />

Findings from the studyhave<br />

promptedanew safety<br />

warning people to be vigilant<br />

KiwiRailGroupchief<br />

executive Greg Miller said<br />

while thecampaigntargets<br />

an important messagefor<br />

everyone.<br />

“Farmersand rural workers<br />

are over­representedinthe<br />

serious­injury and fatal vehicle<br />

crashes.<br />

“Peoplein rural areas often<br />

“Weare seeing at least one<br />

“Tragically, in the past10<br />

years 163 people have died on<br />

the rail network,54ofthoseat<br />

to see anotherlife lost.”<br />

TrackSAFE NZ Foundation<br />

manager MeganDrayton says<br />

thatwhilethe number of<br />

collisions with vehiclesat<br />

declining,there is no roomfor<br />

complacency.<br />

“In the <strong>12</strong> months to June,<br />

KiwiRailrecorded 31<br />

collisions with trains on the<br />

national network, 17 involving<br />

vehiclesand 14 involving<br />

pedestrians. Of these, <strong>12</strong><br />

“Other thandrivers,cyclists<br />

There were still too many<br />

Avintage film showinglife on a<br />

high country station will be<br />

shownatthe Geraldine Cinema<br />

this Sunday.The moviewas<br />

shot by Mesopotamia Station<br />

farmer Malcolm Prouting<br />

duringthe 1950s and60s.<br />

Malcolm’s son Ray Prouting<br />

said hisfather boughta16mm<br />

GB Bell &Howell movie<br />

cameraduringthe war years<br />

and started shootinganything<br />

of interestthat happened on<br />

the station.<br />

‘‘Itwas mostly filmed on the<br />

station withalittle bit of family<br />

life. It has beenedited into<br />

seasons working on the<br />

station.’’<br />

The film was originally<br />

edited by Malcolm,more<br />

recently production editor Sam<br />

Miller converted the film into<br />

digital format and remastered<br />

it withsound effects and<br />

narration for the screenings.<br />

As he wasworking on the<br />

footage Sam realised he had<br />

something special.<br />

‘‘What makes it special is the<br />

quality of thethe footage and<br />

the time period,itwas so early<br />

and it is full colour, Malcolm<br />

did an amazingjob.’’<br />

‘‘The addedsound effects<br />

makes it really interesting,it<br />

was abig job but the sound<br />

brings the film to life.’’<br />

Ray and his family narrated<br />

the film withtheir personal<br />

stories of highcountry life.<br />

‘‘All my brothersand sisters<br />

watched the film and talked<br />

about it as it played and Sam<br />

recorded that and put it as the<br />

soundtrack.’’<br />

Oncethe film wascompleted<br />

there was aspecialshowing for<br />

the extended family, 70 family<br />

members watchedthe film at<br />

the Geraldine Cinema.<br />

‘‘We really loved watching<br />

the film it was one of our<br />

greatest days,’’ Ray said.<br />

‘‘We owe it to the community<br />

because there have beenso<br />

many people from<strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

andGeraldineinvolved with<br />

the station.<br />

‘‘I think dad would be pretty<br />

chuffed to know his film is<br />

being shown to the public.’’<br />

Footpath off radar<br />

There will be no formal footpath<br />

laid from Methven township to<br />

the new Opuke Thermal Pools<br />

and Spa untilthe hot pools<br />

project has been completed and<br />

while the speed limit along the<br />

road remainsat100kmh.<br />

Speaking at arecentMethven<br />

Community Board (MCB)<br />

meeting board member Ron<br />

Smith asked if afootpath was<br />

planned and who would be<br />

payingfor it.<br />

Afootpath was definitely<br />

needed, he said, becausesome<br />

peoplewouldwant to walk<br />

there.<br />

He was concernedabout<br />

possible safety issues because<br />

the road went from 50kmh to<br />

100kmh.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong>District Council<br />

infrastructure services manager<br />

Neil McCann said afootpath<br />

couldn’t be put in until the pools<br />

project was completed and only<br />

then if NZTA agreedtolower<br />

the speed limit.<br />

Last week MCB chairman Dan<br />

McLaughlin raised the issueata<br />

road safety meeting attended by<br />

anumber of agenciesincluding<br />

NZTA.<br />

Mr McLaughlin said NZTA<br />

had toldhim aspeedlimit<br />

changewas along process and<br />

likelytwo to three years away.<br />

State Highway 77 coming out<br />

of Methven was not seen as<br />

dangerous spot and was not a<br />

priority for NZTA.<br />

Although disappointed, Mr<br />

McLaughlin saidhecould<br />

understand the reasoning.<br />

‘‘I was toldtokeep raisingthe<br />

speed limitconcern with NZTA<br />

and to keep it on the radar,<br />

which Iintend doing through<br />

council.’’<br />

The Opuke Thermal Pools<br />

and Spa is expected to be abig<br />

drawcard for Methven and is<br />

scheduled to open at the end of<br />

this month.<br />

Geraldine<br />

transport<br />

plan ticked<br />

Awide ranging plan to improve transport<br />

in Geraldine has been given the green<br />

light.<br />

The Geraldine Transport Strategy,<br />

endorsed by Geraldine Community Board<br />

after consultation with the community,<br />

was adopted unanimously at arecent<br />

Timaru District Council meeting.<br />

The strategy has the vision that the<br />

Geraldine’s transport system ‘‘provides<br />

safe access for all types of travel and<br />

promotes economic growth by enabling<br />

tourism and freight’’.<br />

Council land transport manager<br />

Susannah Ratahi said there had been a<br />

high level of community engagement on<br />

the plan.<br />

It identified anumber of priorities for<br />

the town split into short term (within three<br />

years), medium term (between three and<br />

10 years) and long term (10 to 30 years).<br />

Short­term priorities include an<br />

upgraded walking and cycling connection<br />

between the Geraldine Primary School<br />

and the Geraldine High School, an<br />

investigation of the Cox/Talbot Street<br />

intersection including pedestrian access<br />

to identify short­ and medium­term<br />

improvements and areview of speed<br />

limits.<br />

Medium­term priorities include crosstown<br />

walking improvements on Hislop and<br />

Huffey Streets, raised pedestrian<br />

platforms in the shopping area on Pine<br />

Street, Peel Street and Wilson Street, and<br />

improved connections to aged care<br />

facilities.<br />

Also identified are cycling<br />

improvements on Hislop, George, Jollie<br />

and Tripp Streets, cycle warning signage<br />

on the Waihi River Bridge and ashared<br />

walking and cycling path through the<br />

domain.<br />

Long­term priorities look at cycling<br />

improvements on Talbot Street through<br />

the commercial area to Connolly Street<br />

and an investigation of state highway<br />

diversion from Cox Street to Talbot and<br />

Kennedy Streets.<br />

The priorities outlined in the strategy<br />

will be undertaken by the council, subject<br />

to funding from council and NZTA.<br />

Message From ThePrincipal<br />

Sabbatical Leave/Curriculum Change<br />

This is my firstnewsletter since returning from my<br />

term’s sabbatical leave. Last term was afantastic<br />

opportunity toexplore what other schools are<br />

doing within New Zealand, particularly around<br />

preparing staff and students for avery different<br />

futureworld.<br />

With overseas travel unavailable (thankgoodness<br />

Ididn’t visit schools in Australia), my focus wason<br />

visiting schools who are undertaking curriculum<br />

change.<br />

My main focus was onthe changes that schools are undertaking to<br />

prepare for aworkplace that requires adifferent set of skills. Wenow<br />

know that dispositions such as creative problem-solving, resilience,<br />

co-operation and effective oral language will become essential skills in<br />

the future workplace.<br />

The challenge for secondary schools is how totransform our previous<br />

model, which had traditionally valued retention of knowledge, and<br />

changed the focus sothat learners develop the future dispositions<br />

referred to above. Inmytime Ivisitedtwelvesecondaryschools,and we<br />

were abletoshareideas and journeys.<br />

My thanks to our BoardofTrustees forsupporting my endeavour,and to<br />

Acting Principal Jono Hay, Acting Deputy Principal Angela Mitchell and<br />

Acting HeadofFaculty Greta Hampton, fortaking on extraresponsibilities<br />

during thistime.<br />

OpenNight<br />

Our recent Open Night was well attended, with about 500 people<br />

attending across thetwo sessions. We were luckywith the weather (fine<br />

and frosty)because attendance is oftenlimited if the weatherisdismal.<br />

We had lots ofpositive feedback from those who attended, particularly<br />

around the enthusiasm for AshColl by our staff and from our student<br />

guides.<br />

This eventwas followedupbylast week’s enrolmentinterviews. Theseare<br />

invaluable forusbecausethey areachancetofind out about astudent’s<br />

learning goalsand challenges, andwhattheirpassions and interests are.<br />

We then follow upwith in-person visits to contributing schools. My<br />

thankstoour officestaff who organise this hectic event.<br />

Please notethere areatleast fortyYear 8studentsinour communitywho<br />

haven’t enrolled anywhere as yet. If you are reading this and thinking<br />

that‘I must get aroundtoenrolling Junior’can youplease do this as soon<br />

as possible.<br />

This is important asschools are beginning to recruit staff for next year,<br />

and students who enrol in late January often find that their preferred<br />

options arealready full.<br />

Cancellation of Sports Exchange<br />

With regret this year’s sports exchange against Lincoln High School<br />

was cancelled by them. We were due to be hosted by Lincoln, however<br />

they have had major disruptions within their campus and they lack the<br />

necessary space and infrastructure to adequately accommodate us. As<br />

we nowknow, change is aconstant, and we look forwardtoresuming the<br />

challenge next year.<br />

Cook Islands’Language Week<br />

One of the highlights last week was acelebration of Cook Islands'<br />

Language. This week included a lunch-time concert, visits to<br />

pre-schools and achance for our Cook Islands' students to wear their<br />

cultural costumes on Friday. This followed-up on last term’s Samoan<br />

and Solomon Islands’Language celebrations. It’s always fantastic to see<br />

students celebrate their identityand culture.<br />

Election promise delivers on hot drinks<br />

Eleven year old Tinwald School<br />

pupil Matthew Robertson made<br />

an student leader election<br />

campaign promise to his school<br />

peers; warm Milo drinksin<br />

winter.<br />

He won the electionalongsideco­school<br />

leader<br />

Makayla Burrowes ­and this<br />

week fulfilled hispromise with<br />

tins of Milo to kickstart the<br />

winter warmer weekly sessions.<br />

He also gained the support of<br />

realtor Kirsty Clay,who<br />

sponsored reusable cupswith<br />

lids for every pupil at the<br />

school.<br />

Matthew puthis name in the<br />

hat for theelections at the<br />

beginning of the year and<br />

sought to fulfillapromise made<br />

by senior pupils last year;to<br />

have hot drinks in winterand<br />

get thepie machine working.<br />

But he could only fulfillone<br />

promise andeveryone liked<br />

Milo, he said.<br />

Matthew’s campaigncaught<br />

the attention of Mrs Claywho<br />

was impressedwithhis<br />

strategy, especially as<br />

everyone at theschoolwould<br />

benefit.<br />

Theoriginal planwas for<br />

pupils to provide their own cup<br />

on the days of the Milo treat,<br />

butthe cups required lids.<br />

Recognising apotential cost<br />

for those without lidded cups,<br />

especially thosewithmultiple<br />

children, Mrs Clay sourced239<br />

reuseable cups to cover the<br />

existing pupils,plus some<br />

extras for anynew arrivals.<br />

Thecups, which childrenget<br />

The winter warmers, which<br />

Headway owner celebrates 40 years<br />

MICK.JENSEN<br />

@ashburtoncourier<br />

JillJoneshas clocked up 40 years<br />

running her salon business Headway<br />

Hair Fashions andisstill passionate<br />

abouther chosencareer path.<br />

Shewas afresh­faced 20­year­old<br />

when she took the plungeinto business<br />

ownership and has been in the same<br />

premises at the Tinwald shopping<br />

centre since day one.<br />

Jillsaid it had always been her dream<br />

to do hairdressingand she had never<br />

wanted to do anything else.<br />

‘‘I’ve built up somegreat relationships<br />

with clientsoverthe years and they’ve<br />

been very loyal.<br />

‘‘Some were evencomingtothe salon<br />

before Istarted.’’<br />

Jill, who is 61 on her next birthday,<br />

said her rolewas to make clientslook<br />

good.<br />

It was satisfying work and shehad no<br />

intentionofretiringany time soon.<br />

Her daughter Nicola has worked<br />

alongside her for 18 years andwas<br />

crawlingaround the salon whenshe was<br />

ababy. Shepicked up her mum'sloveof<br />

hairdressing andher own two daughters<br />

hadaplayroomset up at thesalonafew<br />

yearsago.<br />

The last coupleofyears had been<br />

challenging at times,Jill said, not least<br />

because of covid.<br />

‘‘We were closedfor amonth in<br />

February lastyear because of<br />

earthquake strengthening in thesalon<br />

andthen soon after that we had the<br />

lockdown andwereclosed for another<br />

fiveweeks.<br />

‘‘It was atesting time, but the wage<br />

subsidy that Nicola andIreceived was a<br />

bighelp.’’<br />

Jillwas given atillfloat of $55byher<br />

father on herfirst day in the salon on<br />

<strong>August</strong> 1, 1981and withthree days of<br />

bankedtakingsshe wasjustableto<br />

cover staff wages in thatfirst week.<br />

‘‘I started from humble beginnings<br />

and I’m proudofwhatI’veachieved,’’<br />

she said.<br />

Differenthairstyles hadcomeand<br />

gone over the years, butcolour andcurls<br />

were both still popular.<br />

Businesscosts had risen and there<br />

had been advances in technology, which<br />

meantmost payments weremade<br />

electronically, she said.<br />

Since the salon’s firstyear Jill’s<br />

mother has made an annual Christmas<br />

cake that has been sharedwithsalon<br />

clients. This year aspecial birthday<br />

cake has also been made andshared,<br />

Age is no barrier for bowel cancer<br />

The healthsystem is failing<br />

young bowelcancer patients,<br />

Bowel Cancer New Zealand<br />

says.<br />

The organisationis<br />

launching their Never Too<br />

Young campaignwith<br />

increasing concern aboutthe<br />

numberofyoung people<br />

misdiagnosed or on long<br />

waitliststoaccess diagnostic<br />

bowel screening. Morethan 350 people<br />

every year aged under50are diagnosed<br />

with bowel cancer.<br />

Bowel cancer survivorChelsea Halliwell<br />

(pictured), the organiserofthe campaign<br />

and aBowel Cancer NZ ambassador,said<br />

young New Zealanders were still slipping<br />

through the cracks of aseverely<br />

underfunded health system.<br />

“I am absolutely devastatedthat we are<br />

still hearingofyoung people<br />

like Jo McKenzie­McLean, 43,<br />

and HopeBenns, 42, who,<br />

despiteseekinghelp for their<br />

bowel cancer symptoms,were<br />

turned down for diagnostic<br />

bowel screening because they<br />

were consideredtoo young,’’ she<br />

said.<br />

Bowel CancerNZmedical<br />

advisorProfessor Frank<br />

Frizelle saidbowelcancer was<br />

increasingly prevalent in younger people.<br />

‘‘InNew Zealand research has shown<br />

thatamongpatientsaged under 50 years,<br />

the incidence of distal coloniccancer in<br />

men increased by 14 per cent per decade,<br />

while the incidence of rectalcancer in men<br />

increased by 18 per cent and that in women<br />

by 13 per cent.<br />

“Withinthe nextdecade,itisestimated<br />

that 1in10colon cancers and 1in4rectal<br />

cancers will be diagnosed in adults<br />

younger than 50 years,’’ he said.<br />

Healthprofessionals should get<br />

individual patients to do furthertests,no<br />

mattertheir age, should they presentwith<br />

rectalbleeding, change of bowel habit and<br />

stool consistency,hesaid. Bowel Cancer<br />

New Zealand encouraged people to avoid<br />

‘sitting on yoursymptoms’ throughopen<br />

discussionwith medical professionals and<br />

seeking asecond opinion if still concerned.<br />

Bowel cancer symptoms:<br />

include bleeding from the bottom; achange<br />

of bowel habit; any lumps in the stomach;<br />

fatigue or tiredness; anaemia and<br />

unexplained weight loss.<br />

and function like natural<br />

teeth.<br />

They are also used for<br />

stabilising and retaining<br />

over dentures.<br />

Call to make an<br />

appointment with<br />

Michael Holdaway<br />

or Arun Velusamy to<br />

discuss your implant and<br />

over denture needs.<br />

Community Service Card Holders<br />

Dentists<br />

Oral Health Therapists<br />

What does the<br />

Oral Health Therapist do?<br />

The Oral Health Therapist will examine your<br />

gums and the soft tissues of your mouth,<br />

identifying any areas of concern. She will<br />

then gently and meticulously remove plaque<br />

and tartar from around your teeth and under<br />

the gumline and will polish off any surface<br />

staining from your teeth.<br />

The Oral Health Therapist will also show<br />

you how to brush and clean between your<br />

teeth effectively so that you can manage<br />

and improve your own dental health at<br />

home and give you practical diet advice to<br />

help keep your teeth healthy.<br />

Why do Ineed healthy<br />

gums?<br />

Having ahealthy mouth contributes<br />

towards your overall health and well being.<br />

Research has shown there are links between<br />

periodontitis and systemic conditions such<br />

as diabetes and heart disease.<br />

We would encourage people to visit our Oral<br />

Health Therapists regularly.<br />

Our Oral Health Therapists also provide a<br />

free consultation to discuss teeth whitening.<br />

Riley, and his brother Jack, 6,<br />

Lyndhurst with their parents to<br />

find snow to play in on Sunday,<br />

which was abit of atreat for<br />

Jack; the last time he played in<br />

Rain gardensclean up stormwaterinCBD<br />

Special rain gardens in<strong>Ashburton</strong>’s<br />

newCBDhavebeenenvironmentally<br />

designed to soak up and filter<br />

stormwater.<br />

Rain run-off from roads typicallyincludes<br />

contaminants likefuels, oil, grease, brake<br />

and tyreresidues but these willbefiltered<br />

out by the rain gardens before the water<br />

goes intoCouncil’s stormwater network.<br />

The hard work is done inthe deep layer<br />

of soiland sand thatsits under the plants.<br />

Size and placement of the gardens<br />

depends on stormwater captured inthe<br />

surrounding area.<br />

Infrastructure Services Group Manager<br />

Neil McCann said the rain gardens needed<br />

to be large enough tocope with high<br />

rainfall events.<br />

“They proved their worth in the big rain<br />

event at the end of May. There was no<br />

floodinginthe CBD,”hesaid.<br />

Some of the smaller garden beds arejust<br />

forcolour andtoimprove the aesthetics.<br />

Allthenewgardenswilleventuallybecome<br />

the responsibility of Counciltomaintain.<br />

The $15 million two-year CBD project is<br />

on track forafinish in lateNovember,with<br />

work about 80 per cent complete.<br />

Speed signs and road markings will be<br />

added once physical work is complete,<br />

and pedestrian crossings will have their<br />

pale strips painted white tomake them<br />

more visible.<br />

Paving work atthe intersection of Moore<br />

Street and East Street isonschedule to<br />

finish by 23 <strong>August</strong> and Moore Streetwill<br />

re-open fully to trafficand pedestrians.<br />

Nearly 18 months ago, David and Lorayne Oakley became the franchise owners of <strong>Ashburton</strong> Windows<br />

&Doors; previously operated as Rylock <strong>Ashburton</strong>, by the late Dougal and Christine Moore. David had<br />

worked for Dougal for 22 years as an aluminium fabricator, and prior to this, was atrade qualified glazier<br />

for Lewis Glass for 11 years. When Dougal decided to sell the business, Dave and Lorayne saw agreat<br />

opportunity to turn adream into reality. Itcertainly was not adream start, with Covid-19 lockdown<br />

bringing trading to ahalt after just five weeks. Following lockdown was like starting all over again.<br />

However the enquiries keep coming in, keeping Sam, who combines roles as an Estimator and Fabricator,<br />

extremely busy, and in July, Gavin joined the team as afabricator. With Sam and Gavin having worked in<br />

the industry for 26 years, along with David, the team have nearly 60 years of experience between them.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Windows &Doors are the sole<br />

Mid Canterbury manufacturer and supplier of<br />

Rylock residential and commercial aluminium<br />

joinery, and the agent and installers of Dual<br />

Glaze retrofitted double glazing.<br />

The company manufacture to the highest<br />

standard, producing quality windows, sliding,<br />

stacker and bi-fold doors, along with an<br />

array of joinery designs and concepts -<br />

with aluminium supplied by Altus NZ, aNZ<br />

company formed following the merger of<br />

Nalco and Fletcher Aluminium.<br />

There is an expansive range of frame colour<br />

options and componentry available to<br />

complete your renovation or new build, along<br />

with glass choices including Low-E (lowemissivity<br />

to improve the energy efficiency of<br />

your home year round), tinted (for privacy and<br />

UV reduction) and many more.<br />

Recently, retrofitting double glazing has kept<br />

the team busy with awareness of the benefits<br />

becoming widely promoted through arecent<br />

TV campaign. Areduction in condensation,<br />

noise along with increased warmth, are some<br />

of the advantages of having single glazed<br />

windows and doors, retro double glazed for<br />

awarmer, drier and healthier home. Itisan<br />

easy process, with the existing aluminium<br />

frame work remaining installed, and only the<br />

opening sashes being newly manufactured,<br />

fitted with double glazed units and new<br />

window hardware, and then re-installed.<br />

Enquire now to replace your single glazed<br />

aluminium windows and doors with this<br />

option and be prepared to be warmer<br />

next winter.<br />

Root canal treatments<br />

Dentist Osvaldo Gonzalez says having aroot<br />

canal treatment isabout saving atooth that<br />

would otherwise be removed. It is achieved by<br />

removing most of the bacteria from within the<br />

rootcanalsystemandpreventinganyreinfection.<br />

It is common practice to perform a root<br />

canal treatment within two to three or<br />

more appointments with the initial visit<br />

about pain relief and/or the chemomechanical<br />

preparation of the area.<br />

This involves accessing the pulp chamber,<br />

the removal ofintracanal soft tissues, which<br />

may be dead, cleaning and shaping of the<br />

root canal(s) and resolving any local infection.<br />

The chemo-mechanical preparation of the<br />

canal(s) is carried out with files, irrigation and<br />

the placement of the medicament calcium<br />

hydroxide inside the canal for atleast aweek.<br />

The next visit is reserved for the sealing of the<br />

canal(s) and the final restoration (filling).<br />

It is very important that the restoration<br />

adequately seals the root filling from infection<br />

and bacteriafromthe mouth.<br />

Teeth undergoing root canal treatment often<br />

have large filling or extensive tooth structure<br />

lost and will require afull coverage or crown to<br />

restoreand protectthem.<br />

The success and longevity of a root canal<br />

treatment can be linked to the use of a<br />

dental dam through out all these steps.<br />

TheprocessiscommonlyusedatOakGroveDental.<br />

The dental dam has proved so effective itis<br />

one of the competencies recommended by the<br />

Dental Council of New Zealand.<br />

Widespread flooding across the<br />

Canterbury, WestCoast, Tasman and<br />

It hadput further pressure on feed<br />

“We have ramped up support for farmers,<br />

like long­serverPip White, whowas<br />

his assistant.<br />

‘‘I’m looking to step away from<br />

swimming forawhile.<br />

‘‘I’ll look at other optionsand see<br />

if Ican rekindle my passionfor the<br />

sport.’’<br />

Jonestook overfrom Carl Gordon<br />

as swim team head coach in 2013<br />

whenswimmingwas based at the<br />

was one of the best partsof the job,<br />

he said.<br />

‘‘The greatthing aboutswimming<br />

lifeskills.<br />

‘‘You need to be committed, have<br />

good timemanagement and<br />
