neurodivergent.<br />

Inspired by a partially blind<br />

child with autism, Canterbury<br />

University master of business<br />

administration student Kase<br />

Craig has been working on a<br />

consultation project to ensure<br />

Christchurch Arena<br />

Pavilion for<br />

quarry will<br />

recognise<br />

Korean War<br />

veterans<br />

A TRADITIONAL Korean-roofed<br />

pavilion to be installed in the<br />

Songpa-gu Garden at Halswell<br />

Quarry Park will commemorate<br />

Canterbury veterans of the Korean<br />

War.<br />

The pavilion (jeongja) is being<br />

shipped from Busan in Korea and<br />

on arrival at Lyttelton Port will be<br />

assembled at the quarry park and<br />

placed on the western side of the<br />

garden.<br />

The installation is planned to be<br />

completed by June.<br />

It will join existing monuments<br />

including a memorial bridge<br />

commemorating the Korean War<br />

and traditional Korean totem<br />

poles – a symbol of friendship<br />

between Christchurch and its<br />

sister city Songpa-gu.<br />

The Canterbury Korean War<br />

Veterans’ Pavilion will have<br />

plaques naming each veteran<br />

located under the overhang of the<br />

roof.<br />

More than 6000 New<br />

Zealanders served in Korea<br />

between <strong>19</strong>50-57. Forty five<br />

men lost their lives during this<br />

engagement.<br />

“The jeongja honours the<br />

Korean War Veterans in<br />

Canterbury and their sacrifices<br />

made during the Korean<br />

War,” says Korean Society of<br />

Christchurch president and<br />

member of the Christchurch-<br />

Songpa-gu Sister City Committee,<br />

Mary Yoon.<br />

Committee upset by missing plaques<br />

that signify friendship between cities<br />

GONE: David Bolam-Smith at the site of a removed plaque. The Canterbury Japanese<br />

Society and Christchurch Kurashiki Sister City committee members saw the plaques were<br />

missing during a monthly working bee in the Kurashiki Garden.<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

TWO MISSING plaques at<br />

Halswell Quarry have left<br />

keepers of the garden frustrated<br />

and confused.<br />

The Canterbury Japanese<br />

Society and Christchurch<br />

Kurashiki Sister City committee<br />

members noticed two plaques<br />

had been taken from the<br />

Kurashiki Garden when they<br />

were completing their monthly<br />

working bee.<br />

The first plaque, which was<br />

secured to a rock, represents the<br />

40th anniversary of the relationship<br />

between the city and Japan,<br />

as the city’s mayor at the time<br />

was signed in the same time as<br />

the Kurashiki mayor.<br />

The second plaque was donated<br />

to the gardens and installed<br />

onto a shade house used for<br />

people working in the gardens to<br />

rest in.<br />

Christchurch Kurashiki Sister<br />

City committee member David<br />

Bolam-Smith said it was devastating<br />

to see the plaques were<br />

missing, as they represented the<br />

friendship between the committee<br />

and Japan.<br />

“It must have been quite an<br />

effort, it was secured to a rock,”<br />

Bolam-Smith said. “I have no<br />

idea how they did it.”<br />

He said it was frustrating, as<br />

committee members spend a lot<br />

of volunteer hours making the<br />

gardens look nice.<br />

Bolam-Smith, who looks after<br />

the garden along with a ranger,<br />

said the 40th anniversary plaque<br />

cost just under $2000 to make<br />

and install.<br />

He said he has contacted the<br />

city council about reporting the<br />

missing plaques to police and<br />

hopes someone will return them.<br />

We were so impressed with Cameron and his team, we knew we were in<br />

great hands with their professionalism and amazing organisational skills.<br />

Everything ran so smoothly and efficiently. Cameron certainly knows what<br />

was happening with the market at the time we had our house listed and<br />

this was a huge part of us selling our home with him and our successful sale.<br />

A huge thank you to Cameron and his amazing team Sam and Lisa, I would<br />

certainly recommend them to everyone thinking of selling their home.<br />

McMaster & Heap<br />

Veterinary practice<br />

A REGULAR DAY AT<br />

McMaster & Heap VETS<br />

Every day is an adventure as a veterinarian. But it is also hard work, and that’s without<br />

throwing COVID and an increasing pet population into the mix. There are always surprises<br />

and events we can’t predict, like the Labrador that swallowed a sock or a patient struggling<br />

to breathe with heart failure. As professionally trained vets and nurse we have to be ready<br />

to cope with any situation that presents itself any time of the day, respond quickly and have<br />

the right team around us to save a life.<br />

Below are a collection of photos telling a short story of what we see and treat in a single<br />

day at McMaster & Heap. We all support and help each other manage cases, workload and<br />

those emergency walkins. It takes a very special kind of person to do what we do day in day<br />

out, 7 days a week. Steve and I are immensely proud of the team that have chosen to be<br />

part of the McMaster & Heap Family, and I feel proud every single day of the work done by<br />

our entire team.<br />

Steve performing Cataract surgery.<br />

Blue was referred to McMaster & Heap for an MRI because<br />

he’d started seizuring and was not well controlled on epileptic<br />

medication. Suffice to say we couldn’t identify a cause causing<br />

the seizures so can safely say he probably has idiopathic<br />

epilepsy, which will require lifelong daily drug treatment.<br />

Ratepayers expect<br />

councillors to ‘treat<br />

this as a full-time job’<br />

RICCARTON urgently needs candidates<br />

who put community needs before<br />

personal ambitions.<br />

We are at the time when people are<br />

weighing up whether they put their names<br />

forward as candidates in October’s local<br />

body elections.<br />

The Central Riccarton Residents’ Association<br />

believes there is an urgent need<br />

for potential candidates to understand that<br />

ratepayers and residents have very clear<br />

expectations of these candidates, after nine<br />

years of instances of sub-standard representation<br />

at both council and board levels.<br />

Riccarton ratepayers are entitled to<br />

expect that a councillor, for a salary of<br />

$114 per annum, will treat this as very<br />

much a full-time job. Attend all council<br />

briefings and all council meetings, speak<br />

at meetings on behalf of the residents and<br />

remember that you first need to find out<br />

the views of residents, which can be done<br />

by knocking on doors and, of course, listening<br />

to the local residents’ associations<br />

and local business people.<br />

The councillor and the board members<br />

need to be living in the ward so they<br />

have a local presence for the three-year<br />

term. Moving out of the ward or leaving<br />

Christchurch altogether has resulted in a<br />

lack of representation for our ward at both<br />

council and community board level.<br />

CRRA believes central Riccarton,<br />

the most densely populated area in<br />

Christchurch, has been seriously<br />

disadvantaged for the last nine years<br />

because as housing intensification<br />

has markedly increased, the council<br />

management and even some elected<br />

representatives have attempted to strip<br />

the area of its facilities: close the service<br />

centre, remove library facilities, close the<br />

Wharenui Pool, close the two bus lounges,<br />

turn what used to be a vibrant community<br />

centre into just another branch of<br />

Hereford St and wreck the central<br />

Riccarton Rd shopping area by removing<br />

on-street parking and narrowing the road.<br />

This has impacted severely on businesses,<br />

owners resulting in empty shops.<br />

Collaboration a first for education<br />

Belfast School project<br />

co-ordinator Jon<br />

Rogers reports on the<br />

site blessing of a new<br />

concept in education<br />

LED BY Maaka Tau from<br />

Tuahiwi Marae, a blessing and<br />

sod-lifting ceremony was held<br />

in brilliant sunshine earlier this<br />

month.<br />

Two schools will be co-located<br />

on the site in a new subdivision<br />

by Johns Rd. There will be a<br />

senior campus for Belfast<br />

School and a completely<br />

new school for Allenvale Special<br />

School, currently situated in<br />

Bryndwr.<br />

The project marks new<br />

developments in education. This<br />

is the first time a special school<br />

has been co-located with a<br />

mainstream school, and also the<br />

first time a primary school has<br />

been split over two locations. The<br />

two schools plan to explore ways<br />

in which they can collaborate<br />

on the site to the benefit of all<br />

students.<br />

The design team is WSP<br />

(formerly OPUS) and the<br />

construction will be led by<br />

Leighs Construction, both of<br />

which have much experience in<br />

building schools in Canterbury.<br />

Allenvale Special School is<br />

really looking forward to a<br />

new, purpose-built school with<br />

TURNING THE SOD: Maaka Tau from Tuahiwi Marae<br />

oversees Belfast head prefect Olivia Johnston and deputy<br />

head prefect Bill Jiang turning the sod with Allenvale<br />

students Olivia Doig and George McManus. Above – an<br />

artist’s impression of the new schools.<br />

modern facilities to cater for<br />

their students’ diverse needs.<br />

Meanwhile, the new Belfast<br />

School will accommodate senior<br />

students in years 5-8.<br />

At the start of the planning<br />

process the Belfast community<br />

stated it did not want a new<br />

school to create competition<br />

and division in the community.<br />

Instead, it was decided to build a<br />

second, senior campus for<br />

Belfast School. It is planned that<br />

junior students in years 1-4 will<br />

stay on the current site on<br />

Main North Rd.<br />

The blessing ceremony was<br />

attended by a large number of<br />

people involved in the planning<br />

and construction process.<br />

Principals Ian Poulter (Allenvale)<br />

and Sue Elley (Belfast) spoke<br />

about their vision for the new<br />

co-located schools and thanked<br />

everyone in the Ministry of<br />

Education, planning, design<br />

and construction for their work<br />

in bringing the project to<br />

reality.<br />

It is expected the new schools<br />

will be ready for occupation<br />

towards the end of 2023.<br />

End of era for long-standing tennis club<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

AFTER 118 years, St Paul’s<br />

Tennis Club on Harewood Rd is<br />

closing next month.<br />

The club is owned by the St<br />

Paul’s Anglican Church and sits<br />

next to it. However, the church<br />

has decided to sell the land.<br />

Club president Martin Oxley<br />

said members pay rates to the<br />

church for the use of its land.<br />

“Tennis courts really are<br />

more of a community service,”<br />

he said. “You can’t get a lot of<br />

income out of them, so the<br />

tennis club doesn’t have a lot of<br />

money to pay what would be the<br />

commercial rates or residential<br />

rates for the land.”<br />

Oxley said club members<br />

had been aware of the church<br />

wanting to sell the land for a<br />

while.<br />

“It’s a sad thing to lose your<br />

tennis court and not be able to<br />

play there,” Oxley said. “However,<br />

I completely understand,<br />

it’s their land and they should be<br />

allowed to do anything they like<br />

with (it).”<br />

Oxley, who lives right behind<br />

the tennis club, has been involved<br />

with it since 2008 and<br />

said it holds a lot of history.<br />

To ensure that history is<br />

preserved, the club plans on<br />

donating its archives to the city<br />

council.<br />

Oxley said he will continue to<br />

play tennis, but hasn’t decided<br />

what club he will join.<br />

standard for this<br />

time of year.<br />

“We haven’t<br />

actua ly had to<br />

report anything<br />

from the picnic areas around,”<br />

Hall said.<br />

“It was a l very family-orientated,<br />

so it’s been quite good.”<br />

More family groups than usual<br />

seemed to be out, possibly because<br />

the Covid-<strong>19</strong> pandemic was preventing<br />

people from leaving town<br />

for a holiday, he said.<br />

Being a frequent presence<br />

was also helpful in deterring<br />

incidents.<br />

December and January were<br />

No decision<br />

yet to<br />

appeal<br />

declining of<br />

rehabilitation<br />

facility<br />

• By Fiona E lis<br />

THE DEPARTMENT of<br />

Corrections has until February 9<br />

to appeal after permission to build<br />

a contentious rehabilitation centre<br />

for violent offenders in St Albans<br />

was declined.<br />

However, it is remaining tightlipped<br />

on whether or not it is likely<br />

to do so.<br />

Last week the Bristol Street<br />

Resource Consent Hearing panel<br />

declined to grant resource consent<br />

for the Bristol St facility, following<br />

a hearing in November.<br />

The proposal would have seen<br />

up to 12 men serving sentences<br />

of home detention at 14 Bristol St<br />

while participating in a violenceprevention<br />

programme. Men<br />

with significant untreated mental<br />

health issues would not be eligible<br />

to participate in the programme.<br />

In their decision, city council<br />

appointed commissioners Anthony<br />

Hughes-Johnson QC and Ken<br />

Lawn said they were not satisfied<br />

the site was appropriate for such a<br />

facility.<br />

Corrections acting regional<br />

commissioner Chris O’Brien-<br />

Smith did not answer Nor’West<br />

New’s question on whether an<br />

appeal would be made, but said<br />

corrections would spend the<br />

next few weeks reflecting on the<br />

commissioners’ findings.<br />

Museum in the process of redevelopment<br />

• From page 1<br />

“I’m originally from Christchurch<br />

but spent most of my career<br />

based overseas. When I came<br />

home in 2020 to start my MBA<br />

at the University of Canterbury, I<br />

was motivated to work on a consulting<br />

project which would have<br />

an impact in the city,” he said.<br />

“I was inspired by a young boy<br />

with autism who is partially blind<br />

and non-verbal, who regularly<br />

visits Canterbury Museum with<br />

his family. His needs, and those<br />

challenges faced by visitors in<br />

similar situations, are complex<br />

and necessary to address so<br />

that everyone can successfully<br />

navigate the unwritten rules of<br />

the museum – such as knowing<br />

which artefacts can or cannot be<br />

touched.”<br />

Craig wanted his MBA project<br />

to answer the question: How<br />

might we make Canterbury Museum<br />

the most inclusive space in<br />

Christchurch?<br />

His consultation project arrived<br />

at the right time for the<br />

museum as it progresses plans to<br />

redevelop its Rolleston Ave site.<br />

“For Canterbury Museum, it’s<br />

important to tell the story of the<br />

heritage collection while removing<br />

barriers that can create undue<br />

effort and separation,” Craig says.<br />

To that end, over the past year<br />

he has been working in partnership<br />

with Canterbury Museum on<br />

his final MBA assessment. Craig<br />

recently presented his work to the<br />

museum’s executive leaders in a<br />

special display.<br />

Said Canterbury Museum’s<br />

head of public engagement Rachael<br />

Walkinton: “Kase has been<br />

working with members of our<br />

neurodiverse community using<br />

an inclusive design (non-linear)<br />

approach to increase familiarity<br />

when neurotypical visitors transition<br />

between different galleries<br />

and exhibitions. He created his<br />

project in a CDHB (Canterbury<br />

District Health Board) design lab,<br />

and our exhibitions team have<br />

now transported it to our visitors<br />

lounge and set up a “museum lab”<br />

display, which will run through<br />

until the middle of the year.”<br />

The UC MBA programme<br />

provides opportunities for students<br />

to deliver projects with real<br />

impact, says senior lecturer Dr<br />

Christian Walsh. “We love to see<br />

our students helping local organisations,<br />

from all kinds of sectors,<br />

make the world a better place for<br />

their communities.<br />

“For MBA students, the final<br />

consulting project is an opportunity<br />

to apply their learning<br />

from the entire MBA journey to<br />

benefit their organisations and<br />

their communities. We encourage<br />

students to think about the<br />

impact they can have, and we give<br />

them the tools, knowledge, skills<br />

and mindsets to be able to tackle<br />

wicked problems and improve<br />

the lives of those around them,”<br />

Walsh says.<br />

“Kase’s project is a great example<br />

of a very complex problem<br />

space where he has applied a<br />

design thinking process taught<br />

on the MBA, underpinned by<br />

inclusive design principles. This<br />

involved him engaging with the<br />

issue with deep curiosity, then<br />

unleashing his creativity, and<br />

finally having clarity, to be able<br />

to recommend practical steps<br />

the museum can take forward to<br />

make their space more inclusive<br />

for all.”<br />

Craig created a website (www.<br />

ourmuseum.org.nz) and used the<br />

CDHB design lab to make the<br />

project more accessible and easier<br />

to follow, especially for neurodiverse<br />

people who may find written<br />

reports on progress difficult to<br />

engage with.<br />

“Inclusive design principles<br />

underpinned a design thinking<br />

process to increase awareness of<br />

the many nuanced user perspectives<br />

connected to how people<br />

with autism grow, evolve, and<br />

continually adapt to their environment,”<br />

Craig says.<br />

His MBA final project included:<br />

• Twenty interviews with participants<br />

from the autism community<br />

• Consultation with 24 museums<br />

in Aotearoa New Zealand<br />

and overseas<br />

• Results from Canterbury<br />

Museum staff and the autism<br />

community participating in the<br />

design of prototypes<br />

• Extensive testing of solutions<br />

under real-world conditions<br />

• Resourcing requirements and<br />

initial plans for implementing<br />

recommendations<br />

Craig is excited about the next<br />

steps: “I created a series of change<br />

management considerations for<br />

resourcing and implementing the<br />

project’s outcomes, mitigating<br />

any unexpected barriers or<br />

obstacles, and evaluating overall<br />

effectiveness. Additionally,<br />

the high-level of industry<br />

engagement throughout the<br />

project has created an impetus for<br />

change at Canterbury Museum<br />

continue moving the project<br />

forward.”<br />

New community recreation centre<br />

‘a wonderful asset to have’<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

AN OLD high school gym that<br />

has been transformed into a<br />

community-based sports and<br />

recreational centre will open its<br />

doors this weekend.<br />

The Avon Hub, formerly the<br />

Shirley Boys’ High School gym,<br />

has had a new lease of life. It’s<br />

been renovated, with new basketball<br />

backboards and hoops<br />

and new gym flooring.<br />

The gym will host an opening<br />

day on Sunday from 11am-1pm<br />

with activities and inflatables<br />

for the kids to play on, as well<br />

as sports games and a sausage<br />

sizzle.<br />

Eastern Community Sports<br />

and Recreation community sport<br />

manager Kate Latimer said the<br />

Ministry of Education funded<br />

the repairs to get the gym to a<br />

fully functioning communitybased<br />

centre.<br />

“For the community, it is a<br />

wonderful asset to have available<br />

for the local schools for their<br />

sport and PE development,”<br />

Latimer said. “Local principals<br />

are very excited to have tamariki<br />

have access to the gym and turf<br />

spaces.”<br />

The building on North Pde became<br />

empty when Shirley Boys’<br />

UPGRADE: The Avon Hub has new basketball hoops and backboards as well as repairs to the gym flooring, while outside<br />

it has a new turf area for teams and clubs to utilise.<br />

High School moved to a new<br />

purpose-built facility in New<br />

Brighton in 20<strong>19</strong>. The school was<br />

demolished, leaving only the<br />

gym behind.<br />

The Avon Hub will be used by<br />

Pareawa Banks Avenue School<br />

and Shirley Intermediate<br />

School, as well as nearby Shirley<br />

Primary School.<br />

“For the community, expressions<br />

of interest are being called<br />

for from groups to utilise the<br />

meeting spaces, which will be low<br />

cost and affordable,” Latimer said.<br />

She said they’ve already had<br />

lots of interest from different<br />

groups, but have focused on nonmainstream<br />

sports to “give them<br />

a home”.<br />

The groups include Canterbury<br />

Wheelchair Rugby, Dead End<br />

Derby, Korfball Canterbury and<br />

TIMA, which is an adapted sport<br />

for high sensory needs.<br />

Latimer said once they’ve established<br />

the school demand for<br />

the gym, they will offer strength<br />

and balance programmes and<br />

classes for older people during<br />

the day.<br />

She said the gym will be an<br />

exciting asset for the community<br />

and welcomes everyone to walk<br />

through and have a look on<br />

open day.<br />

Keep cosy with<br />

RD Petroleum<br />

this winter<br />

Sticky date<br />

anything always<br />

seems to be a<br />

winner and this<br />

simple, luscious<br />

cake by Joan<br />

Bishop is no<br />

exception. It is<br />

light but at the same time<br />

quite densely moist. The<br />

dates enrich the cake’s deep,<br />

delectable texture and the<br />

grape juice provides the tang.<br />

PHOTO: CHRISTINE O’CONNOR/ODT<br />

Delicious sticky date<br />

cake a yummy treat<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 />

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 />

0800 44 00 14, or visit the RDP website at<br />

AS A child, I remember very vividly the<br />

warm, comforting and homely smell of<br />

baking wafting through the house. As<br />

a result of all this activity, the cake tins<br />

were always full, in spite of the fact that a<br />

number of ingredients were in short supply.<br />

Afternoon tea was always quite an<br />

occasion. Sometimes we accompanied our<br />

mother to what was essentially a ladies<br />

afternoon tea.<br />

We, the children, had our eyes glued to<br />

the tea trolly. What would we choose?<br />

I’ve recently talked to a number of<br />

friends about this and they too remember<br />

the rule. We were allowed to choose two<br />

pieces from the tea trolly and only two.<br />

This was the time when children were<br />

encouraged to be seen and not heard, so of<br />

course, there was no discussion on whether<br />

we liked what we had chosen.<br />

Sticky date and grape juice cake<br />

Makes 16 slices<br />

Ingredients<br />

270g pitted dates, halved<br />

250ml dark grape juice<br />

50g butter, roughly chopped<br />

2 Tbsp treacle<br />

120g dark cane or brown sugar<br />

¾ tsp baking soda<br />

2 large eggs, size 7, lightly beaten<br />

<strong>19</strong>0g plain flour<br />

2 tsp ground allspice<br />

Directions<br />

Preheat the oven to 170degC.<br />

Lightly oil the sides of a 20cm ring tin<br />

and line the base with non-stick baking<br />

paper.<br />

Combine the chopped dates and the<br />

grape juice in a microwave proof bowl.<br />

Cover and microwave on full power for 3<br />

minutes.<br />

Stir in the butter, treacle, dark cane sugar<br />

and baking soda. The baking soda will<br />

cause the mixture to froth up.<br />

Set the bowl aside to cool.<br />

Pour the lightly beaten eggs into the date<br />

mixture and stir to combine. In a mediumsized<br />

bowl sift together the flour and the<br />

allspice. Make a well in the centre and pour<br />

in the liquid ingredients. Stir gently until<br />

well combined.<br />

Pour into the prepared cake tin, smooth<br />

the top and bake in the preheated oven for<br />

35-40 minutes, or until the top feels firm<br />

to the touch and a skewer inserted into<br />

the centre of the cake comes out clean. To<br />

loosen, run a knife between the edge of the<br />

cake and the tin.<br />

Invert on to a plate. Peel off the baking<br />

paper then turn right side up on to a<br />

serving plate. Decorate with edible flowers<br />

if you wish.<br />

Serve just as it is or with whipped cream<br />

or yoghurt. Cuts into 16 slices.<br />

The cake will keep in a cool place in an<br />

airtight tin for about a week.

HOME & HEATING<br />

Get the balance<br />

right this winter<br />

Enviro Master has been helping<br />

Cantabrians get the balance right when it<br />

comes to choosing the perfect heat pump or<br />

air conditioning system for their home or<br />

office since 2002.<br />

Their team of expert sales people, qualified<br />

electricians, heating and refrigeration<br />

engineers, help to supply and install<br />

Christchurch’s widest range of heat pumps,<br />

and because they have no affiliation with any<br />

one brand, you can be assured their advice<br />

on the benefits and differences between each<br />

product is unbiased.<br />

They will recommend the most energyefficient<br />

and cost-effective system for your<br />

individual situation, and will have you<br />

regulating the heat in your home or office in<br />

no time.<br />

Nowadays, customers are often wanting<br />

whole home solutions to be able to maintain<br />

even temperatures throughout the home<br />

both in Winter and Summer. This can be<br />

achieved by using ducted systems or multi<br />

systems and Enviro Master are experts in<br />

designing, installing and commissioning<br />

these systems.<br />

Help is currently available with a<br />

government subsidy covering 80 per cent of<br />

the cost of a new heat pump up to $3000.<br />

The subsidy is part of the Warmer Kiwi<br />

Homes initiative and is available to Home<br />

owner/occupiers with a Community<br />

Services Card, a SuperGold combo card or<br />

who live in a low-income area as determined<br />

by deciles 8-10 on the New Zealand<br />

Deprivation Index.<br />

The applicant’s home must also have been<br />

built before 2008, have insulation up to code<br />

(insulation subsidies also available) and have<br />

no fixed heating in a living area, such as an<br />

existing operational heat pump or fireplace.<br />

With new regulations now in place for<br />

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,<br />

it’s time to ensure you are meeting the new<br />

standards.<br />

Inadequate heating and ventilation can<br />

lead to mould growth and dampness in your<br />

property, leading to costlier maintenance<br />

and an unhealthy living environment.<br />

Providing a fixed heater with a higher heat<br />

output and lower running costs, like a heat<br />

pump, will enable your tenants to heat the<br />

area effectively. Enviro Master are well<br />

experienced with the Tenancy Services<br />

software to ensure that you are meeting your<br />

requirements.<br />

To ensure you choose the right system<br />

for your home or business, one of Enviro<br />

Master’s experts will visit to assess your<br />

individual situation, offer advice and<br />

answer any questions you may have. This<br />

consultation is at no cost to the customer<br />

and is always provided before a heat pump is<br />

installed.<br />

Anyone wondering about their eligibility<br />

for a subsidised heat pump are welcome to<br />

get in touch for details and help with the<br />

application process. To find out more, call<br />

Enviro Master on (03) 366 0525 or visit<br />

their website www.enviromaster.co.nz<br />

Top 10 affordable tips to jazz up your<br />

outdoor space for Summer<br />

Achieving a beautiful and vibrant<br />

outdoor living space, where you can<br />

entertain family and friends in style, as<br />

well as relaxation, need not require a<br />

major overhaul.<br />

Here are a few tips to get the<br />

imagination going — using functional<br />

pieces that are also designed to bring<br />

pleasure. Why not use the Winter<br />

months to spice up your outdoor area<br />

ready for this Summer.<br />

Simple steps to achieve al fresco<br />

appeal<br />

1. Applying colour to the table in the<br />

form of a fun tablecloth will<br />

automatically set the mood. Layering<br />

the tablecloth with a runner of a<br />

different texture or contrasting<br />

coloured napkins adds another<br />

dimension.<br />

2. Put some simple fresh flowers<br />

or plants in small vessels to bring<br />

nature to the table.<br />

3. Gather serving platters, trays and<br />

dinnerware in contrasting materials<br />

to create an eclectic and stylish<br />

setting.<br />

4. A fruit-infused water station<br />

in the form of a dispenser or<br />

jug will serve as cool,<br />

refreshingly flavoured<br />

hydration.<br />

5. Hanging or wall planters add<br />

much-needed greenery, even<br />

in the smallest of outdoor<br />

spaces.<br />

6. Background music to bop<br />

along to always helps!<br />

7. Lighting in the form of fairy<br />

lights or spotlights help to<br />

create an inviting ambience.<br />

8. Blurring the line between indoor<br />

and outdoor living is a stylish tactic<br />

– wide, open doors with flooring<br />

that flows could work with outdoor<br />

rugs when connecting the indoor<br />

and outdoor areas.<br />

9. Adding cushions to outdoor seating<br />

will create an inviting area for<br />

comfort.<br />

Wicker chairs with soft cushions are<br />

great for a rustic look, while wooden<br />

or metal seating creates a modern/<br />

industrial feel.<br />

10. Remember that distinctive<br />

pieces needn’t cost the earth,<br />

but they will always catch the eye<br />

and set the tone for your dream<br />

outdoor zone.<br />

How Should Rent Increases Be Handled?<br />

In the current climate we are seeing<br />

fairly large rent increases become the<br />

norm, and while there is a very firm<br />

law around increasing rent, I believe<br />

we do also have a responsibility to be<br />

empathetic when dealing with these.<br />

I spoke to a tenant who rents through<br />

another property management<br />

company recently who was quite<br />

distraught when she received an $85<br />

per week increase, and of course she<br />

only has 60 days to come up with a plan<br />

to make that affordable. Now in this<br />

instance she is a working single mum so<br />

will likely comply for some assistance<br />

from WINZ, but when she called them<br />

they cannot tell her 60 days in advance<br />

what, if any, financial assistance she will<br />

be eligible for - Panic stations!! That is<br />

a whole different subject we can save<br />

for a different day!<br />

This made me think about how our<br />

Feature Property<br />

own company handles issuing rent<br />

increases, and I am proud to say that<br />

while we absolutely understand that<br />

rent increases are part of a renter’s life<br />

particularly with landlords’ costs rising<br />

so much lately, we approach it much<br />

differently.<br />

Firstly, when we speak with landlords<br />

about rent increases we will send<br />

them a thorough rental assessment to<br />

show what the current market rent is<br />

on comparable properties and make<br />

a recommendation guideline. We do<br />

also encourage an open conversation<br />

around the increase and how it may<br />

impact the tenants, I guess what we like<br />

to avoid is going into the situation all<br />

guns blazing without thinking through<br />

all possible outcomes.<br />

When we do come across a rent which<br />

does need to be increased substantially<br />

we ensure we pick up the phone and<br />

Sold Property<br />

speak with the tenant so that we are<br />

able to explain why the increase needs<br />

to be a little higher, and also we can<br />

offer them advice on the assistance<br />

they can apply for if the increase is<br />

going to be difficult for them.<br />

While we are employed by the<br />

landlord to ensure they receive the<br />

maximum income for their property<br />

and advise our landlords to that effect,<br />

we also understand that treating<br />

tenants respectfully and having open<br />

communication will in fact work better<br />

for all parties involved and make for a<br />

much better overall outcome for our<br />

landlords and tenants alike.<br />
