Graffiti, damaged bins

and litter still an issue

GRAFFITI AND wheelie

bin-related issues continue to

be a problem in the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

area.

A ticket report breaking down

issues residents reported to the

city council between June 19 and

July 18 shows similar concerns

have come out on top compared

to the previous results.

The top three issues reported

by residents last time between

May 22 and June 20 were

damaged bins, with 103

tickets, graffiti (98) and road

litter (87).

In that time, 1232 tickets, or

jobs, were completed within

an average of 2.6 days, falling

in a range of categories such

as transport, parks and three

waters council assets.

But the most recent report

has not only revealed that the

concerns have largely remained

the same – the number of tickets

for each issue has increased, too.

The issues with the most

tickets included graffiti (127),

missed bin collections (120), and

damaged bins (116).

Dog owners hit the parks and pavements throughout the city with their best

friends last week, making the most of the late-winter sunshine and the extra

time that many found they had under the Covid-19 alert level 4 lockdown.

Reporter Fiona Ellis and photographer Geoff Sloan were there with their

cameras.

Hamish Southcott and Tania Bostock first exhibited

together at Little River Gallery in 2014 and since have

had a number of duo shows. Ben Reid joins them in

‘Miscellany’ after a five year exhibiting hiatus at Little

River Gallery.

Hamish Southcott seeks to create well-crafted,

beautiful pieces of art that highlight the inherent

beauty of reclaimed materials. Recently his works

explore the human influence on New Zealand’s rich

and diverse natural landscape.

Tania Bostock is drawn to texture and contrast. Her

process consists of straightening and perfecting, then

pushing the paint in a freer, less controlled manner

working in multiple layers on bold geometric shapes.

Ben Reid is a Canterbury based printmaker

whose interest lies in the fragile relationship that

New Zealanders have with the natural world.

The complexities are beautifully explored in the

technically challenging medium of print.

Future of organics plant undecided

A REPORT on whether the

odorous organics processing

plant in Bromley should be

redeveloped or relocated

altogether will be considered

next Thursday.

The city council was expected

to have finalised a contract for

the redevelopment of its plant

last month, but the proposals so

far have been

above the

$21.5 million

budget.

It is required

to stop

the discharge

of offensive

Helen

Beaumont

odour beyond

Living Earth’s

site boundary

by January next year after

mounting complaints from

residents that lead to an abatement

notice from Environment

Canterbury.

“Through the recent multistage

tender process for the

organics plant upgrade project

we received some great proposals

from the market. However, all

compliant proposals were above

the $21.5 million budgeted for

the works,” Helen Beaumont,

city council head of three waters

and waste said.

“We are looking at whether

we can refine the scope of the

redevelopment to bring costs

DECISION: The city council will consider a report this month on the future of its Bromley

organics processing plant, run by Living Earth.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE ​

down without compromising

our commitment to reducing the

odour issues.”

Due to the higher than expected

costs of upgrading the

existing facility, the city council

is also assessing the viability of

building a new facility in a different

location.

“We know the Bromley

community want the odour

issues associated with the

plant addressed as soon as

possible, so we are working

at pace to collect all the

information needed to enable the

elected council to make a call on

whether we push ahead with the

redevelopment, or build a new

plant at a different site,” she said.

“We are aiming to bring a

report to a council meeting in

September that outlines all the

options and their advantages and

disadvantages.”

That report will be considered

in the publicly excluded section

of the meeting due to commercial

sensitivities around contract

pricing.

However, any decision

reached will be communicated to

residents at the earliest possible

opportunity after the meeting.

“We understand this process

may be frustrating for residents

in the Bromley community,

however, this is a complex multimillion

dollar project and we

want to make the right call,”

Beaumont said.

If the case for a new site stacks

up, and the city council decides

to build a new facility, any

potential location would require

a resource consent, “which was

likely to be notified.”

“This would mean that people

living or working nearby would

have the opportunity to provide

feedback,” she said.

“Whilst staff are exploring

the possibility of building a new

plant on a different site, we are

still actively working on plans for

the redevelopment of the Bromley

site and working through

the final stages of the tender

process.’’

“EDDY”, a much adored 10 month

old Tabby was rushed to McMaster

& Heap vets on a Sunday, after

alerting his owners that something

was up when he hopped on their

bed early one morning and started

moaning loudly. One of the owners

had worked as a nurse for us, so she

didn’t waste time in getting Eddy

seen. Steve Heap was called in when

it was clear there was a severe injury

to Eddy’s right eye.

The lens material was removed by

a machine that performs cataract

surgery - A Phacoemulsification

Machine. The eye was irrigated and

the corneal wound sutured carefully.

Then the eye was reinflated. X-rays

performed identified the slug pellet

and Steve realised he’d been shot

through the eye. The bullet was

lodged in a downward angle, and it

blew out the animal’s lens, meaning

Eddy would have been looking

directly at the offender at close

range.

Suffice to say Eddy is recuperating

excellently being cared for round the

clock by his dedicated owners. Steve

thinks the surgical eye is comfortable

and Eddy is back to his crazed, manic

antics. He won’t see in the eye but

we are hoping he gets to keep his

eye. Once his eye is stable and he’s

recovered , a second surgery would

be advised to remove the slug pellet

that sits very close to his cervical

spine.

Dr Michele McMaster

When Steve saw Eddy, he identified

a ruptured right eye with a large

piece of lens protruding through

the cornea. This would have been

excruciatingly painful. A penetrating

eye injury was suspected but the

cause was not initially apparent. He

was immediately anaesthetised,

placed on intravenous fluids and

given pain medications. Steve

became suspicious of a slug pellet

injury due to the unusual corneal

injury and the fact the lens had

totally exploded! Steve hadn’t seen

anything like this in 30 years of

Ophthalmology practice.

Overcoming demons to help needy

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

“Our jobs give them a bit of important, and builds up their said Gibson.

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

helps others.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

“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

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.”

‘I enjoy helping people’

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

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

“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

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 vehicle fleet. This

PEGASUS POST

means they have the latest communication

and GPS tracking technology on board, so

the operations team always know where they

are and how far away they are from their next

delivery stop.

RDP’s home heating diesel trucks come

equipped with a specially-designed hose,

through which the diesel is pumped from

the truck into house tanks. The length of

the hose allows the trucks to access tanks

without having to enter the property, avoiding

damaging the driveway. RDP is the place to

go if you require diesel conveniently delivered

to your home and as a loyal RDP customer

you’re offered discounted pricing and can

become eligible for value-added benefits.

For all enquiries please phone

0800 44 00 14, or visit the RDP website at

HOME & HEATING

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 facts about home ventilation

Balanced Pressure

vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need

to be suitably ventilated, either with

opening windows or forced ventilation.

Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this

provision is to safeguard people from

illness or loss of amenity due to lack of

fresh air.” There are many benefits to

forced, or mechanical, ventilation over

opening windows, including warmth,

security, reduction of outside noises and

reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in

from outside via the roof space and force

the stale air out through gaps around

windows and doors. The incoming air

from these systems

has to be heated

or cooled to keep

the house warm in

winter or cool in

summer.

The Smooth-

Air HEX390 is a

‘balanced pressure’

system. It extracts

air from the house

and at the same

time brings in

fresh air. These

two streams of air

pass through a heat

exchanger, which

warms incoming air in winter and cools in

summer if air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of the energy

which would be wasted using a traditional

positive pressure system is recovered,

resulting in significant energy savings and

therefore lower heating or cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure

ventilation systems have been considerably

more expensive than traditional positive

pressure systems. However, with Smooth-

Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a

HEX390 balanced pressure system can be

installed for a similar price as a traditional

positive pressure system.
