Event planner uses skills<br />

to create homeless feeds<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

A COLLABORATION between<br />

food truck owners and an event<br />

planner has ensured homeless<br />

people around the city have full<br />

bellies.<br />

Nyran Stanton is the brains behind<br />

the homeless feeds, after the<br />

idea came to him when he woke<br />

at 4am one morning in January.<br />

Being an event planner with<br />

no events due to Covid, Stanton<br />

wondered what he could do to put<br />

his expertise to use.<br />

“I thought if I can’t do events<br />

maybe there’s some people in the<br />

community that could benefit<br />

from something,” he said. “I<br />

thought why not go out and do<br />

some homeless feeds.”<br />

He began brainstorming<br />

straightaway and came up with<br />

Demon Angel Charities, the<br />

demon aspect representing the<br />

addictions and flaws humans<br />

have while the angel aspect balances<br />

it out with the goodness of<br />

humanity.<br />

Stanton called up homeless<br />

shelters and went to Christchurch<br />

City Mission to announce his<br />

idea, as well as talking to a few<br />

homeless people on the street.<br />

In two weeks he had raised<br />

$458 from donations thanks to<br />

a Facebook page he’d set up to<br />

promote his idea.<br />

He spent the money at<br />

Linwood Seafood, putting on his<br />

first successful homeless feed at<br />

the end of January.<br />

First, Stanton walked to<br />

Christchurch City Mission to<br />

hand out some fish and chips,<br />

before heading over to Latimer<br />

Square to find a group of<br />

homeless people waiting for him.<br />

He handed out the food and<br />

they all sat down together and<br />

shared their stories, something<br />

Stanton said was “very cool.”<br />

From then on, Stanton has<br />

worked on building up his<br />

charity to the point of hosting<br />

a homeless feed almost every<br />

Thursday.<br />

“I think people kind of<br />

appreciate that we’ve all had<br />

situations in our life where we’ve<br />

needed a feed from somewhere,”<br />

he said.<br />

“I think everyone has been<br />

pretty good about it.”<br />

Take a walk for as far as you like<br />

IS IT A WHILE since you’ve<br />

been into town? Perhaps a walk<br />

on the Hidden Worlds Discovery<br />

Trail will help to rediscover the<br />

beauty and fun of our city centre.<br />

Walk Waitaha is a selection of<br />

self-guided walks and walking<br />

activities around the city and region<br />

and offers an alternative to<br />

the traditional Walking Festival<br />

which was unable to run in its<br />

usual form this year due to the<br />

Covid-19 red light setting.<br />

It runs from through to May<br />

15 and city council head of community<br />

support and partnerships<br />

John Filsell says they’ve tried to<br />

develop a programme that caters<br />

for every kind of walker.<br />

“We wanted to offer walks that<br />

take people to different parts<br />

of Waitaha/Canterbury; places<br />

where people might not have<br />

been before or haven’t visited in<br />

a while and that showcase the<br />

incredible diversity of landscapes<br />

Easter<br />

we’re lucky enough to have in<br />

this part of the world.<br />

“Along with walking activities<br />

like disc golf – there’s a new<br />

course just opened at Warren<br />

Park – and orienteering, we’ve<br />

also developed a selection of selfguided<br />

walks.<br />

Children can spot the fairy<br />

doors at Christchurch Adventure<br />

Park.<br />

“There’s an art walk at Pegasus<br />

Wetland and beach for instance<br />

which takes you around Te<br />

Kohanga Wetlands and onto the<br />

beach where you’re invited to<br />

create a unique piece of beach art<br />

– bring a garden rake or something<br />

to help you get creative.<br />

“Families might enjoy<br />

looking for the fairy doors at<br />

the Christchurch Adventure<br />

Park Village, or exploring the<br />

Richmond Red Zone where<br />

there will be a special Anzac<br />

art display of white crosses and<br />

Food trucks help to feed the homeless<br />

• From page 1<br />

The 45-year-old admitted he<br />

had a bit of a rough upbringing,<br />

having an absent father due to<br />

his rock and roll career, making<br />

Stanton’s home life a bit hectic.<br />

Born in Australia, Stanton said<br />

would often bunk school and<br />

take chips to feed the homeless<br />

people in public parks.<br />

When he was nine, Stanton<br />

moved to New Zealand to<br />

live with his uncle and shifted<br />

around a bit before settling in<br />

Aranui.<br />

Stanton said he knows what<br />

it’s like to live in poverty so can<br />

appreciate helping out those that<br />

need it, especially when mental<br />

health is involved.<br />

“There’s a lot of satisfaction<br />

talking to someone who’s got<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

THE NORTH Avon BMX Club<br />

is one step closer to making its<br />

asphalt pump track a reality after<br />

being granted $200,000.<br />

The money was approved by<br />

the city council’s sustainability<br />

and community resilience<br />

committee, coming from the<br />

capital endowment fund.<br />

The club also received $100,000<br />

from the Rātā Foundation last<br />

mental health problems over<br />

food,” he said.<br />

“It’s quite interesting actually,<br />

even as a curiosity standpoint,<br />

and a giving standpoint so<br />

they can talk to you without<br />

judgement.”<br />

After a few feeds, Stanton<br />

began reaching out to food<br />

trucks to see if they wanted to<br />

participate at a subsidised rate<br />

from money he raised.<br />

He recently had Tracey<br />

Cashin from Tracey’s Grub on<br />

Hubs food truck reach out to<br />

him expressing her interest in<br />

providing food for the homeless.<br />

Cashin said she enjoys the<br />

experience of helping others and<br />

has helped Stanton on several<br />

occasions before.<br />

“We’ve probably fed maybe 20<br />

week, leaving one final funding<br />

application to be approved before<br />

it can start construction of the<br />

track.<br />

North Avon BMX president<br />

Mark Lewis said the club will<br />

be applying for a grant from the<br />

Lotteries Commission to help<br />

them get the track over the line.<br />

However, this won’t be until<br />

September when the next round<br />

of applications opens.<br />

Combined with the money<br />

to 25,” Cashin said. “Last time<br />

I was here we fed 64 people,<br />

they come and they go, they<br />

come and sit down and have<br />

something to eat, fill their bellies<br />

and then off they go,” she said.<br />

Stanton has plans to continue<br />

growing his charity and has a<br />

goal of raising $200 a month<br />

through his Givealittle page to<br />

cover food costs.<br />

He said putting the feeds on is<br />

extremely satisfying and hopes it<br />

is making a positive difference in<br />

people’s lives.<br />

• To donate to Stanton’s<br />

next homeless feed go<br />

to https://givealittle.co.nz/<br />

cause/httpswwwfacebookcomdemonangelproductions<br />

received from Kiwi Gaming<br />

Trust, New Zealand Community<br />

Trust, and Pub Charity and<br />

Boosted Sport, the club has<br />

raised a total of $410,000<br />

towards the project, with<br />

the total cost a projected<br />

$690,231.<br />

Lewis said the club has been<br />

actively raising funds to get<br />

an asphalt pump track built at<br />

Bexley Reserve for about a<br />

year now.<br />

“There’s been lots of behindthe-scenes<br />

work,” Lewis said.<br />

“Watching the meeting livestreamed<br />

(it) was great to see<br />

how quickly everyone was to say<br />

absolutely . . . it really reflects<br />

their support.”<br />

Lewis said the project crew<br />

were “quietly stoked” to have<br />

reached this important milestone<br />

and couldn’t have achieved<br />

it without the support of the<br />

community.<br />

The Personal Nature of Personal Taste<br />

You would think that after<br />

considerable time in a business<br />

that has more than its share of<br />

opinion-based rhetoric that I<br />

would have learnt most of its<br />

important lessons, but they still<br />

keep coming.<br />

You see, I’d forgotten that everyone looks<br />

at things through their own, very unique<br />

lens and none of us are the same or<br />

exercise the same choices.<br />

So, here’s a simple scenario: it is from my<br />

role as the owner of a staging business.<br />

It’s a relatively new business having been<br />

in operation for around 15 months. It’s a<br />

business that I love and it’s given me and<br />

the team a lot of joy.<br />

During that time, in excess of 150 stages<br />

have been completed and the value<br />

of properties being staged has ranged<br />

from $500,000 to over $6,000,000. The<br />

feedback has also ranged from absolute<br />

rapture – including offers to purchase<br />

every single staging item that’s gone<br />

into the property – to the occasional<br />

expression of disappointment. Now, a<br />

good 95% have been really happy, but<br />

95% is not 100% and I’ve worked hard to<br />

ease the frustrations of the two – three<br />

parties who decided it wasn’t their ‘look’.<br />

But that’s the point where interpretation<br />

begins, and I’ve had to dig deep to<br />

understand and adjust accordingly.<br />

For example, when people say ‘modern’,<br />

it could mean modern colours, modern<br />

and contemporary, mid-century modern<br />

– like you would find at Mr Mod – or<br />

modern in 1989!<br />

I’ve been asked for table runners (similar<br />

to what my grandmother loved), glass<br />

plates with three tealight candles<br />

arranged neatly on top and centered,<br />

big corner couches from one of the city’s<br />

discount stores… and I’ve been reminded<br />

that it’s the client who calls the shots,<br />

which they do!<br />

So, I’ve removed, restaged and<br />

reimagined, worked all weekend and<br />

been at the staging sheds at 5am to help<br />

sort. And it’s worked, which I’m grateful<br />

for. So the lesson is to ask more questions,<br />

listen hard to the responses and maybe<br />

pass the baton graciously when there’s a<br />

gaping distance between preferences or<br />

there’s nothing that adequately captures<br />

a potential client’s style in five large sheds<br />

of accessories and furniture.<br />

It’s so true that life lessons are what make<br />

the world a more interesting place and<br />

space to live in, as does a beautifully<br />

presented home!<br />

$300,000 to the Society of<br />

St Vincent de Paul towards<br />

construction of the Pavitt<br />

Street Housing Project.<br />

The funding has been<br />

given through the city<br />

council’s Capital Endowment<br />

Fund and the facility<br />

will be built behind the<br />

Society’s headquarters in<br />

Richmond.<br />

“The grant will go<br />

towards the development<br />

of a purpose-built<br />

facility that will give<br />

up to seven young<br />

families at a time<br />

access to warm, affordable<br />

and secure<br />

housing along with<br />

wrap-around support,”<br />

said councillor<br />

and chairwoman<br />

of the sustainability<br />

and community resilience<br />

committee Sara Templeton.<br />

“Some of the most atrisk<br />

members of our community<br />

will benefit from<br />

this project, right from<br />

Sara<br />

Templeton<br />

when the doors open and<br />

for many years to come,<br />

so we are very pleased to<br />

stand in support of this<br />

much needed facility,”<br />

Templeton said.<br />

The Society is collaborating<br />

with St<br />

John of God Waipuna<br />

which will provide<br />

wrap-around<br />

support to those<br />

living in the facility<br />

via the Housing<br />

Opportunities for<br />

Parental Enhancement<br />

programme.<br />

Area president Mike<br />

Daly said the aim is to<br />

provide suitable accommodation<br />

for parents aged<br />

primarily between 17 – 24<br />

years old, with weekly<br />

rent determined on an<br />

individual basis<br />

“The idea is that young<br />

parents are supported to<br />

build life skills in a safe,<br />

secure environment,” Daly<br />

said.<br />

“This grant means we<br />

have the confidence to<br />

continue to completion.<br />

We’ll still have a (funding)<br />

shortfall but it will be<br />

smaller and more achievable<br />

to try and recover.”<br />

The complex will<br />

comprise six new twobedroom<br />

units and one<br />

three bedroom unit which<br />

will be available to rent for<br />

between three months and<br />

two years.<br />

Construction started at<br />

the end of last year and the<br />

facility is on track to open<br />

in November.<br />

IN 2008 when Jane Mackay<br />

purchased a small homebased<br />

Baby On The Move<br />

franchise, her intention was<br />

to be self-employed while<br />

her two small boys were at<br />

home.<br />

Fourteen years later, the<br />

boys are at high school,<br />

and the business has grown<br />

into a thriving retail store,<br />

employing five staff.<br />

Baby On The Move<br />

started life as a car seat hire<br />

business, mainly hiring<br />

infant capsules to new<br />

parents, as well doing short<br />

term hires for grandparents<br />

with family visiting, and<br />

this continues to be an<br />

important part of the<br />

business today.<br />

Car seat safety has always<br />

been a core value of the<br />

franchise, and all staff are<br />

trained as child restraint<br />

technicians.<br />

Whether you’re purchasing<br />

a car seat or hiring one<br />

short-term, Baby On The<br />

Move staff can help you<br />

figure out what is going to<br />

be the most appropriate car<br />

seat to suit your needs, and<br />

they will install the seat into<br />

your car so that you know<br />

it’s as safe as it possibly can<br />

be.<br />

If you’re preparing for<br />

littlies coming to stay,<br />

portacots, cots, highchairs,<br />

CONTENT MARKETING<br />

Baby On The Move for all the<br />

things your infant requires<br />

buggies and the like are also<br />

available for short-term<br />

hire.<br />

Hires are not all you<br />

will find at Baby On The<br />

Move in Wairakei Rd,<br />

though. The retail store<br />

stocks quality brands of<br />

all kinds of baby products<br />

from Lamington socks to<br />

Stokke Tripp Trapp chairs<br />

and the incredibly popular<br />

NZ buggy brand, Edwards<br />

& Co.<br />

Whether you’re hunting<br />

for the perfect baby shower<br />

gift or looking to set up a<br />

whole nursery, there are<br />

options aplenty, and the<br />

friendly, knowledgeable<br />

staff are happy to assist.<br />

Littlies coming for Easter?<br />

Baby On The Move have a great selection of<br />

short and long-term hire items, not just car seats.<br />

Highchairs, buggies, cots, bouncers and more!<br />

hire me!<br />

Woolston Brass secures building funding<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

AFTER YEARS of using an<br />

earthquake-damaged band<br />

room, the Woolston Brass has<br />

been given a grant to help with<br />

its rebuild project.<br />

Woolston Brass will receive<br />

$400,000 over the next two<br />

financial years, coming from the<br />

city council’s capital endowment<br />

fund, with $270,000 granted<br />

for the 21/22 financial year and<br />

$130,000 for the 23/24 year.<br />

The existing band room<br />

located at 37 Dampier St was<br />

built in 1905, but suffered<br />

significant damage in the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

While it continues to be<br />

used by about 200 regular<br />

members and nine external<br />

organisations, the city council<br />

has advised the rebuild be undertaken<br />

by 2025.<br />

Woolston Brass members<br />

believe they will have raised sufficient<br />

funds by mid-2023<br />

to begin construction,<br />

finishing in late 2024.<br />

The proposed design<br />

consists of two floors with<br />

a range of performance<br />

areas, tuition spaces and<br />

storage, and will have accessible<br />

parking.<br />

Linwood Ward councillor<br />

Yani Johanson<br />

was advocating for the<br />

organisation to get the funding<br />

by encouraging colleagues to<br />

support their vision.<br />

Yani<br />

Johanson<br />

“It’s been a long road postearthquake<br />

to look at their facilities,”<br />

Johanson said. “I<br />

was just happy to help out<br />

as much as I could to get<br />

them some endowment<br />

fund money to support<br />

their project.”<br />

He said the city council<br />

supported a lot of groups<br />

after the earthquakes,<br />

but there were still some<br />

facing challenges with<br />

rebuilds today.<br />

“It’s the sort of thing the endowment<br />

fund was set up to support<br />

in my view, which was civic<br />

projects that bring benefit to<br />

the city and to the community,”<br />

Johanson said.<br />

Spreydon Ward councillor<br />

Melanie Coker acted as chair<br />

for the sustainability and<br />

community resilience committee<br />

during this grant approval and<br />

said councillors felt this was a<br />

worthy cause to support.<br />

“Security of funding from<br />

(the city council) will provide<br />

Woolston Brass with a better<br />

ability to apply for further<br />

funding elsewhere to get their<br />

project off the ground,” Coker<br />

said.<br />

Award-winning band<br />

conductor’s vision<br />

SUMNER SILVER Band has welcomed an<br />

award-winning conductor into its ranks.<br />

Last year Ray Blampied retired from his<br />

role as musical director for the band and<br />

handed the baton over to John Mason, of<br />

Tasmania.<br />

Mason has been a member of the NZ<br />

Army Band for seven years, and also<br />

played BBb Bass with the NZ National<br />

Band at the 2017 world brass band<br />

championships.<br />

He won the BBb Bass solo at the NZ<br />

national championships in 2016 and 2017,<br />

and finished second in the Eb Bass solo<br />

in 2021. He is also a playing member of<br />

Woolston Band.<br />

Mason’s strategy to ensure a strong<br />

future for the Sumner band includes the<br />

establishment of a development band to<br />

run alongside the main one.<br />

This group will be open to anyone from<br />

the age of 10 upwards who has a basic<br />

ability on a brass band instrument and<br />

wishes to build on this by playing in an<br />

ensemble.<br />

It will meet on Thursdays at Redcliffs<br />

School, prior to the main Sumner band<br />

practice.<br />

Mason is also available as a brass<br />

instrument teacher and can be contacted<br />

via the band’s website.<br />

Although the RSA has decided to<br />

limit the Anzac Day commemoration in<br />

Sumner this year, the band will still be<br />

playing before and after the short service<br />

at the memorial gates.<br />

HELM: John Mason, the conductor<br />

for Sumner Silver Band, intends to<br />

establish a development band to<br />

run alongside the main one.<br />

As a community band Sumner is always<br />

ready to welcome brass players into its<br />

ranks.<br />

The band practises from 6.30-8.30pm<br />

every Thursday evening at Redcliffs<br />

School.<br />

Contact Peter Croft on 3849 534 or visit<br />

the band’s website if you are interested.<br />

A Home for the Ages<br />

Just three proud owners have held this phenomenal cedar-clad dwelling since its<br />

construction in the 1920’s, but after 30 years in the stewardship of our vendors it’s now<br />

time to add a new name to the title.<br />

You’ll inherit a beautifully polished gem, which wholeheartedly embraces the patina of its<br />

original construction, thanks to the meticulous preservation of unique features including<br />

timber panelling, wonderful rimu joinery and mullioned windows which echo the ethos of<br />

Arts and Crafts craftsmanship.<br />

From the spectacle of the grand staircase to elegantly proportioned ceilings, the floorplan<br />

is configured to embrace sun and space, with the accommodating formal lounge and<br />

separate dining demonstrating considerable comfort, warmed by a gas fire and heat pump<br />

respectively.<br />

The timeless kitchen fuses classic charm with modern convenience, and its floor to ceiling<br />

cabinetry and glass fronted cupboards will delight purists and pragmatic household cooks.<br />

A century of establishment lends the leafy 862m 2 grounds grandeur, and their usefulness is<br />

heightened by a garden shed, single garage and off-street parking, although the significant<br />

parcel may also tempt those with an eye to future subdivision.<br />

If long tenure is testament to greatness, then this long-held home is among the best we’ve<br />

been privileged to offer.<br />

Sisters’ healthy food tour no raw deal<br />

TWO SISTERS are spreading<br />

the healthy diet message on a<br />

nationwide tour, alongside their<br />

childhood idol of Harold the<br />

Giraffe.<br />

Rosa and Margo Flanagan,<br />

known as the Two Raw Sisters,<br />

are teaming up with Life<br />

Education Trust and 5+ A<br />

Day Charitable Trust to visit<br />

schools.<br />

Rosa, 26 a former national<br />

steeplechase star, and Margo, 23,<br />

created the Christchurch-based<br />

food company five years ago<br />

after attending a vegan culinary<br />

school in Los Angeles. They host<br />

workshops around the country<br />

as well as teach courses and cater<br />

for events.<br />

The pair said they used to love<br />

it when Life Education Trust’s<br />

mobile classroom visited their<br />

school. Not only did they get<br />

time out of lessons, but got to ask<br />

Harold lots of interesting questions.<br />

“Harold’s visits taught us both<br />

valuable life skills on the world<br />

and where our place is in it,” Rosa<br />

said.<br />

They were enjoying the<br />

nationwide tour, which started<br />

about two weeks ago and visiting<br />

Riccarton School.<br />

The pair are pleased to be<br />

fulfilling their goal of inspiring<br />

children and parents to base their<br />

meals around in-season fruit and<br />

vegetables, while adding meat or<br />

another source of protein on the<br />

side.<br />

HEALTHY EATING: Two Raw Sisters Margot (left) and Rosa<br />

Flanagan are teaming up with Harold the Giraffe to visit<br />

schools around the country.<br />

“This then helps them<br />

ensure they are getting their<br />

five-plus-a-day ticked off and<br />

achieve the balanced diet that<br />

Harold recommends,” Margo<br />

said.<br />

Life Education Trust chief<br />

executive John O’Connell said<br />

the programme came at a critical<br />

time for many families.<br />

“One in five children in<br />

Aotearoa live with food insecurity.<br />

While the path to food<br />

security is a complex one, teaching<br />

healthy eating habits from<br />

a young age is proven to be an<br />

PLANT-BASED: Riccarton School pupils Nargis<br />

Qurbanzada and William Crawford learned how to<br />

prepare a healthy dish when Two Raw Sisters and Harold<br />

the Giraffe visited recently.<br />

important part of the solution,”<br />

O’Connell said.<br />

With 45 teachers working in<br />

1400 schools, the trust was New<br />

Zealand’s largest health education<br />

provider.<br />

“Meeting with both tamariki<br />

and parents in their communities<br />

is a great way of providing<br />

information in an accessible,<br />

interactive format that’s both<br />

engaging and motivates longterm<br />

positive change. We’re really<br />

looking forward to sharing the<br />

youthful and engaging approach<br />

of Two Raw Sisters.”<br />

RD Petroleum<br />

this winter<br />

RD Petroleum (RDP) is a familiar sight<br />

for farm and rural residents around the<br />

Canterbury region, however now days urban<br />

residents also enjoy the same excellent<br />

customer service for which RDP is known for<br />

in rural communities, through their home<br />

heating diesel.<br />

RDP began its home heating diesel delivery<br />

service to the lower South Island’s main urban<br />

centres of Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin<br />

and Invercargill a number of years ago.<br />

Customer demand has continued to increase<br />

year upon year, and RDP has responded<br />

with specialised improvements to its delivery<br />

equipment.<br />

The trucks that deliver RDP’s home heating<br />

diesel in each urban centre are drawn from<br />

the company’s extensive vehicle fleet. This<br />

Thursday <strong>April</strong> 7 <strong>2022</strong><br />

means they have the latest communication<br />

and GPS tracking technology on board, so<br />

the operations team always know where they<br />

are and how far away they are from their next<br />

delivery stop.<br />

RDP’s home heating diesel trucks come<br />

equipped with a specially-designed hose,<br />

through which the diesel is pumped from<br />

the truck into house tanks. The length of<br />

the hose allows the trucks to access tanks<br />

without having to enter the property, avoiding<br />

damaging the driveway. RDP is the place to<br />

go if you require diesel conveniently delivered<br />

to your home and as a loyal RDP customer<br />

you’re offered discounted pricing and can<br />

become eligible for value-added benefits.<br />

For all enquiries please phone<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Ground moisture barrier<br />

under low sub-floor<br />

Now with the colder and wetter weather on<br />

its way, home owners are focusing on ways<br />

to make their homes comfortable, warm<br />

and healthy for their families throughout<br />

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects<br />

many of our older properties which suffer<br />

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.<br />

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many<br />

people have relocated to homes that suffer<br />

from rising damp which can be associated<br />

with health problems. Independent tests have<br />

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise<br />

from the ground and enter a house every day,<br />

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and<br />

musty smells. Moulds can produce various<br />

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and<br />

very young are especially vulnerable.<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a<br />

locally owned and operated firm. The team<br />

understands the problems caused by rising<br />

damp and are there to help. They will come<br />

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,<br />

flowable foam concrete under your timber<br />

floored home.<br />

While insulation is important, it has been<br />

recognised that it is dampness that is the real<br />

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes<br />

Standards introduced by the government<br />

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has<br />

a requirement to install ground moisture<br />

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight<br />

moisture in the home.<br />

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a<br />

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under<br />

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed<br />

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over<br />

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation<br />

on the underside of a timber floor can occur<br />

where the floor is suspended over damp<br />

ground and the inside air temperature falls<br />

close to the crawl space air temperature.<br />

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture<br />

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding<br />

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can<br />

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.<br />

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most<br />

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier<br />

under the suspended wooden floor of your<br />

home, even when there is no crawl space.<br />

Does your range<br />

hood suck?<br />

Whether it plain sucks, or whether it<br />

doesn’t suck enough, or even if it is a noisy<br />

sucker - Smooth-Air can help.<br />

Smooth-Air can either improve your<br />

current Range Hood, or custom build to<br />

your specifications.<br />

“We can take your attractive but noisy,<br />

underperforming range hood and retrofit<br />

it with one of our whisper quiet remote<br />

extraction fans.” says Richard Jack, Regional<br />

Manager of Smooth-Air, “We have fans<br />

which can sit in the ceiling space, or outside<br />

on your wall or roof to make it extra quiet.”<br />

In-house testing showed a difference of<br />

20dbA (decibels) between a remote fan<br />

from Smooth-Air and a common in-hood<br />

fan range hood. This corresponds to a<br />

quadrupling in perceived noise level.<br />

Range Hood conversions<br />

include removal of existing fan<br />

and rewiring for new remote fan.<br />

Your local sparky can easily carry<br />

out installation of the new fan.<br />

For kitchens not suited to a<br />

standard range hood, Smooth-<br />

Air can manufacture and<br />

powdercoat a bespoke range<br />

hood to match your décor.<br />

Custom built range hoods have<br />

the benefit of being designed<br />

specifically for your house.<br />

As well as being whisper quiet,<br />

Smooth-Air’s remote fans are<br />

powerful - sucking out cooking<br />

smells and moisture so they don’t circulate<br />

around your home.<br />

Moisture in your home can cause mould<br />

and mildew on your walls and furnishings.<br />

It is also bad for the health of the occupants.<br />

Household cooking is a major source of<br />

internal moisture, therefore an effective<br />

kitchen extraction system can make a<br />

significant difference to internal moisture<br />

levels.<br />

Smooth-Air can also help with other<br />

forms of ventilation, such as bathroom<br />

extraction, condensation reduction or<br />

whole house ventilation.<br />

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH<br />

(0800 766 684) to ask how they can help<br />

you with your kitchen extraction, as well<br />

as any other ventilation requirements.<br />

RAY WHITE PAPANUI NEWS<br />

How to Choose a Dining Table<br />

Family dining, entertaining, homework,<br />

games hub, even work and Zoom calls:<br />

a dining table must tick a lot of boxes.<br />

That’s why it’s important to choose<br />

a table that’s right for your style,<br />

functionality and budget.<br />

If you are in the market for a dining table<br />

to entertain many guests or looking for<br />

a dining table to accommodate a small<br />

family, with key advice and a wide range<br />

of dining tables, you will find a style and<br />

shape to suit your needs.<br />

A dining table is the heart of a home.<br />

It is a place where family and friends<br />

can gather to eat and enjoy long<br />

conversations.<br />

“If chosen carefully, a good quality<br />

dining table will last you a long time, so it<br />

pays to spend a considerable amount of<br />

time researching the best possible dining<br />

table that can be enjoyed for many years<br />

to come,” says a Focus on Furniture and<br />

Bedding spokesperson.<br />

The four-S process for ideal choice<br />

Here is a quartet of quick-and-easy tips<br />

for choosing the right dining table for<br />

your home:<br />

Size – If you’re considering entertaining<br />

larger guests, you may want to consider<br />

how you will accommodate everyone<br />

at the dinner table comfortably. First,<br />

consider the size of your existing room,<br />

then leave enough space for people to<br />

get in and out of their seats. Measure<br />

Award Winning Property<br />

Management Services<br />

We were honoured to achieve recognition<br />

in all three categories of the Ray White<br />

Canterbury zone awards last week, and<br />

while we love some more certificates to<br />

hang on our wall, it is what this means for<br />

our clients, both current and future, that<br />

really means something to us.<br />

So let’s start with one of the most<br />

important parts of our promise to our<br />

landlords, rent collection. It may seem an<br />

easy task to collect rents, but particularly<br />

in tough times, like now, we really need<br />

to work hard to ensure not only are<br />

we empathetic to our tenants who are<br />

experiencing hardships, but also able<br />

to help them to ensure they can pay<br />

their rents on time every week so that<br />

our landlords are able to meet their<br />

own financial obligations. It is all about<br />

communication, and we are very good at<br />

this, which has been proven once again<br />

by us taking out Number 1 ranking in the<br />

coveted ‘Zero Arrears Club’!<br />

The second award was a growth award<br />

where we achieved Number 2 in the<br />

number of new managements for our<br />

region. What does this mean?, well you<br />

can only achieve this if you are providing a<br />

top notch service to your clients. I believe<br />

Feature Properties<br />

the height of the seat you are thinking of<br />

buying with your dining table so you can<br />

sit comfortably. As a rule of thumb, leave<br />

about 20-30cm from the seat to the<br />

tabletop.<br />

Shape – First consider the shape of<br />

your room. Round tables can work well<br />

in smaller spaces and rectangular and<br />

square dining tables will suit larger areas.<br />

If you are considering a large rectangle<br />

table, ensure you leave enough room for<br />

chairs not to meet with other pieces of<br />

furniture in the room. Bench seating is a<br />

great option when space is tight as they<br />

can slide right under the dining table,<br />

preventing overcrowding.<br />

Style – If you’re after a sophisticated<br />

style of dining décor, a tempered-glass<br />

that the best referral tool we have is the<br />

clients we already have and our reputation<br />

and that is ultimately why people choose<br />

us to take care of their investment<br />

properties.<br />

Net growth was the third award, where<br />

we placed second, and this ties in directly<br />

with the service we provide our existing<br />

landlords. It is all very good to bring in<br />

new business, but if clients are leaving in<br />

droves, you need to have a long hard look<br />

at the why. I am very proud to achieve this<br />

award, it reiterates we are doing it right!<br />

The final recognition was for community<br />

service. We are very passionate about<br />

supporting the communities we work<br />

in and we love getting involved in local<br />

projects. We are all about getting amongst<br />

it as well as providing financial assistance<br />

where we can, whether that is cooking<br />

meals for families at Ronald McDonald<br />

House or dressing up and helping to<br />

entertain the kids at Halloween!<br />

top combined with stunning Oak<br />

detail will create a beautiful statement<br />

piece. For a relaxed style of dining,<br />

consider a table made from brushed<br />

Acacia for a lighter look.<br />

Storage – If you enjoy entertaining<br />

and require extra storage space for<br />

all your beautiful crockery, tableware<br />

or glassware, consider adding a<br />

buffet in the same room. Focus on<br />

Furniture and Bedding provides<br />

matching buffets and dining tables, so<br />

it’s worth investigating — to not only<br />

allow for those little extras but also<br />

tie the room in together. Buffets and<br />

hall tables can also provide a handy<br />

space to display extra food during a<br />

party or showcase your most valuable<br />

collections.<br />
