EAT UP: Northwood sisters Emily, 9, and Georgia Grins, 11, taste test the popcorn with Dr Bugs popcorn manager Monique

Posthuma during a school holiday tour of the factory.

Popcorn-makers share kernels of wisdom

THE INSIDE scoop on how

popcorn is made is being dished

up to children at the Dr Bugs

popcorn factory in Casebrook.

A 45min factory tour was

being offered as a school holiday

programme at the family-owned

Christchurch company.

OPTION ONE

The children can watch

popcorn being made, taste it hot

off the production line, learn

what makes it ‘pop’ and make

and flavour their own popcorn.

The flavours include chilli,

chocolate, salsa, cinnamon,

cheddar and salt.

Sales and marketing manager

Reuben Posthuma said the

company loves the chance to

show people how popcorn is

made.

“Seeing how excited the kids

get makes the job ever better

. . . they seem to love watching

popcorn getting packed the

most,” he said.

“It’s a mesmerising machine

and kids just stand there

gobsmacked. I think the chance

to taste the popcorn straight off

the production line is a favourite

too.”

Worried about

PEOPLE WITH concerns about

the downstream effects of the

Christchurch Northern Corridor

will have the chance to express

their views in a public meeting

next month.

Those who submitted through

the consultation process have

been invited to speak at the meeting

on August 6, in front of the

Papanui-Innes Community Board

and a traffic expert at the city

council chambers.

A report will also be presented

at the meeting, summarising the

feedback received from the consultation

process, which ran from

April 26 to June 4.

From there, an independent

traffic expert will make recommendations

in a draft Downstream

Effects Traffic Mitigation

Plan, which will outline any

remedial steps required to avoid

and mitigate adverse traffic effects

on nearby communities, once the

CNC opens.

The report will then go back to

the community board and will be

consulted on.

THERE WAS nothing lucky about

Cooper Moore’s world stars of junior golf

championship win in Las Vegas (see page

14).

The 10-year-old is one of Canterbury’s

most promising young golfers.

The Las Vegas event was played over three nine hole rounds

on a shortened course.

Cooper tied with a United States player after the three rounds

and a par got him home on the first play-off hole.

His father gave him good advice before the tournament: “Dad

just told me to hit it straight off the tee and give myself the best

chance to get on the green and that’s how it played out.”

Cooper would like to be like Jordan Spieth one day. That’s a

great goal to aim for.

Boards to meet over school zones

• By Sophie Cornish and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

THE Coastal-Burwood and

Papanui-Innes Community

Boards will meet with Ministry

of Education representatives

to discuss concerns it has with

the proposed zone changes for

Avonside Girls’ and Shirley Boys’

High Schools.

The meeting has been confirmed

for the middle of next

month.

MoE Canterbury

education

director Coralanne

Child

and principal

adviser Simon

Blatchford will

Kim Money be present at the

meeting.

It comes after the two schools,

which will relocate to a shared

campus at QE II Park next year,

are required to create a new

enrolment zone.

Students living in Shirley, Richmond,

Avonside, Edgeware and

parts of Linwood will still be able

to attend the schools, but only on

a ‘transitional arrangement’.

The addresses will only be

deemed ‘in zone’ for as long as

they contain the children currently

at the address and does

not include people who move in

to the area.

Prestons subdivision was not

included in the zone at all.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board chairwoman Kim Money

said from her board’s point of

view, the main concern is the

Prestons subdivision, which has

been left out.

She said it is a huge thing shifting

two high schools and while

it will be a loss for the Shirley-

Papanui area, it will be a gain for

the Coastal-Burwood area.

Ms Money said the board has a

good relationship with the MoE

and the point is to have a discussion

about the changes

in the area.

She said it is the board’s goal

to have Prestons included in the

zoning.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

said the board doesn’t have a

definite idea of what it would like

to discuss yet.

“One of the issues that the

board members raised was

the time frame that the MoE

is putting on the temporary

extension of the boundaries,

so that is something we will be

raising with them. Other things

will probably come out of the

discussion,” she said.

A site meeting is also planned

It is to discuss installing a

Update debate continues

• By Sophie Cornish

Mike

Davidson

COMMUNITY board member

Mike Davidson is still at

loggerheads with the city council

and New Zealand Transport

Agency over the Christchurch

Northern Corridor extension.

City council and NZTA said it

provided regular project updates

to residents and the Papanui-Innes

Community Board.

Cr Davidson slammed the city

council and New

Zealand Transport

Agency’s consultation

process for

the Northern

Arterial extension

and Cranford St

upgrade at a council

meeting on July

12, saying it was

“unbelievable and

unacceptable.”

The project will see Cranford St,

north of McFaddens Rd, upgraded

to four lanes and an upgrade to the

Cranford St, Innes Rd intersection.

Cr Davidson said he was

disappointed that for one of the

consultations in May, the Papanui-

Innes Community Board was only

informed about it one day before it

closed.

However, a NZTA spokeswoman

said last week that the CNC team

“provides regular project updates

process, saying residents and the community board were informed

board member Mike Davidson still believes “the ball was dropped.”

to affected residents along Cranford

St and also provides quarterly

briefings to the community board.”

City council manager planning

and delivery Lynette Ellis, said key

stakeholders, including the community

board were informed about

consultation.

But Cr Davidson says he doesn’t

believe that is correct.

“At no time was I, or other

members of the community board,

aware that was being consulted on

. . . I think we may have had a briefing

from staff earlier in the year

about some of the things that were

happening, which is totally different

to being informed that there was a

consultation under way.”

Cr Davidson said by not advertising

the consultation more

externally, like putting it on their

website, it limited people’s ability

to have a say, which is “not acceptable.”

“Majority of time the CNC

team have kept residents and the

community board up-to-date

with progress . . . but the ball was

dropped with this consultation,”

he said.

was acceptable for the

and Cranford St upgrade?

Any potentially affected

owners and occupiers of streets

identified in the report will

The recommendations

set out in the final plan will

Plans suggested by city

council to improve adverse

Bid to stop rats preying on butterflies

• By Sophie Cornish

SEVERAL ACTIONS are

being taken to stop rats eating

butterflies in Abberley Park, but

a butterfly enthusiast said the

problem is more widespread.

Vicky Steele has been studying

butterflies for more than 20

years and said there is evidence

of butterfly predation at Burnside

Park and Ernle Clark Reserve in

Somerfield also, but can’t 100 per

cent confirm it is rats.

“There are numbers missing

everywhere but it is hard to find

proof that it is rats, sometimes

weather or lack of food can contribute

but when wings are found

it is a clear indication they have

been eaten.”

“The evidence isn’t 100 per cent

conclusive but it’s really damning

. . . if its not rats, then I don’t

know what it is.”

No traps have been set in Burnside

Park. Some have been set in

Ernle Clark Reserve.

Ms Steele has found and collected

more than 1000 sets of

wings at the parks.

Wind grasses, where rats

usually live, have been removed

from Abberley Park and ‘tree

bands’ have been wrapped

around trees to avoid rats

climbing them.

New plantings will also be

introduced, which will provide

an additional food source for butterflies

and bees.

However, city council manager

community parks Al Hardy said

there is no evidence to support

that there is a rat problem at Abberley

Park, in spite of several actions

being taken by city council

and Tree Tech staff to reduce the

problem.

Rat traps have been used,

however, none contain poison

due to health and safety concerns

involving other animals and

children in the park.

Ms Steele said the bands appear

to be working in Abberley Park.

“Nothing has died since . . . it’s

the first time since May that has

happened,” she said.

Architectural award for Bishopdale Library

THE BISHOPDALE Library

has been recognised in an

architectural design awards,

where Canterbury was named

the most awarded region in New

Zealand.

On Friday, the Canterbury/

Westland ADNZ Resene

Architectural Design Awards

recognised residential, commercial,

alterations, interiors

and multi-use projects designed

by Architectural Designers New

Zealand members.

ADNZ chief executive Astrid

Andersen said that Canterbury

was the most awarded region in

the country, for a reason.

“We have a significant number

of entries across the country every

year, but it does seem that Canterbury

designers have an edge.

The opportunities many designers

were given after the earthquakes

was massive – it enabled them to

be part of a city rebuild and not

many designers can claim that,”

said Ms Andersen.

Bishopdale Library was awarded

the commercial-industrial architectural

design award, shared with

the Redcliffs Village Library.

Designed by Marcus Stufkens

of SC Architects Ltd, judges said

both libraries are “linchpins” of the

communities they reside and demonstrate

the possibilities for design

of shared community spaces.

The Bishopdale Library is a

node of activity in a community

rebuilding after the Christchurch

earthquakes. The stepping volume

of the building negotiates a relationship

between the street and

the park beyond.

Cymon Allfrey of Cymon Allfrey

Architects was a major winner

on the night, winning four regional

awards and one commended.

Mr Allfrey’s work on a home in

Glandovey Rd received praise.

The design features a pitched

roof plane that rests on a rectangular

pavilion spanning the

length of the house.

Judges said that the simple

forms come together in a considered

way, so the pitched roof feels

as though it is lightly floating on

the darker box of the building.

The Glandovey Rd home was a

joint winner of the residential new

home over 300m 2 architectural

design award along with a house

on Girvan St, designed by Nicholas

Mann of AO Architecture.

Papanui Townhouses designed

by Ben Brady of Linetype Architectural

received commendation

in the residential multi-unit

dwelling architectural design

award.

Mr Allfrey’s Glandovey home

also received commendation in

the residential interiors architectural

design award.

AWARD WINNERS: The Bishopdale Library and Papanui Townhouses received recognition in

the Canterbury/Westland ADNZ Resene Architectural Design Award ceremony.

DESIGN: A Glandovey Rd home and a Girvan St home were also acknowledged.

Brownlee joins intersection battle

• By Sophie Cornish

ILAM MP Gerry Brownlee has

joined the battle to upgrade the

contentious Breens, Harewood

and Gardiners Rds intersection

and wants to see if the New

Zealand Transport Agency could

help fund it.

Mr Brownlee said upgrading

the intersection, which sees 10

lanes converging, to lights is

“pretty essential”. He is going to

contact NZTA to ask “what their

position is.”

“Putting in lights is pretty

essential, particularly when

you’ve got Breens Intermediate

so very close,” he said.

The former deputy leader of

the National Party met with city

councillor Aaron Keown last

week to discuss the matter.

Cr Keown has fought for an

upgrade to the intersection

for more than two years and

previously offered $100 to

anyone who could name another

intersection in the city without

lights that has more lanes

converging.

A video posted on Mr

Brownlee’s Facebook page last

week showed the pair standing at

the intersection.

Cr Keown said there was “a

bit too much push back from

crusade to upgrade the contentious Breens, Harewood and

Gardiners Rd intersection and wants to approach NZTA about

council staff, giving us every

reason why we shouldn’t have

traffic lights.”

During Long Term Plan

submissions earlier this year,

Mayor Lianne Dalziel suggested

lights might not be the best

option for the upgrade and that,

in some cases, installing lights

can often make an intersection

busier and, as a result, more

unsafe.

Mr Brownlee said within

minutes of standing at the

intersection, he witnessed “a

couple of near misses.”

He said there is a funding

formula for these types of

upgrades.

“Clearly the council have

decided that it’s not something

they want to recommend to

councillors,

which I think is

disappointing

and frankly

kind of misses

the point about

making the

intersection

more userfriendly

and

safer,” said Mr

Brownlee.

Lianne

Dalziel

“There is a formula that sees

some NZTA money available for

these sorts of things but I’m just

going to find out exactly what the

situation is by contacting them,”

he said.

A report with recommended

options for the upgrade will

go to the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board in

September.

bus changes

CONSULTATION IS now open

on proposed changes to the 44

Shirley bus route extension.

As a result of the Christchurch

Northern Corridor project,

the Orbiter bus will no longer

be able to turn in and out of

Philpotts Rd in Mairehau. It will

be re-routed via Cranford St and

Innes Rd later this year.

These changes will affect some

residents living adjacent to Philpotts

Rd, such as residents and

staff of the Diana Issac Retirement

Village.

About 80 residents from the

retirement village presented a

500-signature petition to Environment

Canterbury, pleading

it to reconsider changing the

Orbiter route, which would see

their closest bus stop moved to

1km away.

The consultation involves

changes to the 44 Shirley route,

including travelling to and from

Innes Rd via Philpotts Rd, Glenfield

Cres, Roslyn Ave, Croziers

Rd, Ranger St and Nancy Ave.

This will provide access to The

Palms and central city for those

residents. The extension would

take slightly longer.

Board talks

about issues

around trees in his ward

WE THE residents of the

garden city of Christchurch are

justifiably proud of our gardens,

plants and trees.

These aspects of nature

provide a unique character to

our city, together with streams,

rivers, lakes, coastline and, of

course, the hills and mountains.

Most of our reserves and

streets have trees which are

pleasant in nature. We are also

fortunate to have a good blend of

native and imported trees.

On the other hand, some trees

can become problematic for the

PROBLEM: Tall trees with falling debris are a cause of

frustration for some residents.

residents. At the Waimaero –

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board, more than

once we have heard residents

who are unhappy with the

trees at or near their property.

Without an exception, these

residents are tree and natureloving

people, and law-abiding

residents. Their concerns

include trees growing too tall

and casting large shadows over

houses, depriving residents

of sunshine (particularly in

winter), too many acorns and

other debris falling, risk to those

walking or cycling under the

trees and so on.

In one case, the resident is so

concerned that they are seriously

considering moving out of their

home of 40 years.

The protection of trees by the

city council is quite a complex

subject. We have ‘heritage trees’,

‘protected trees’ and ‘normal

trees’ among us.

Many residents feel that many

trees have outgrown

their purpose (pun intentional)

and need to be addressed

effectively.

They feel that the whole issue

should be looked at in totality,

not just in isolation about

protection of trees.

On the other hand, we

sometimes hear stories about

residents taking things into their

own hands, and doing things

against the law.

Of course, we don’t

want this to happen in our

neighbourhoods, do we?

What comes first: The welfare

of residents or the protection of

trees?

Something to ponder on. I

invite your views on this subject

to enable a discussion.

Readers respond to a story

about Northwood residents

continuing their battle to

upgrade the intersection of

Main North Rd, Northwood

Boulevard and Radcliffe

Rd, which they believe is

dangerous

Sue Rennie – The only thing

wrong with this intersection is

the drivers who don’t follow the

road rules pertaining to traffic

lights.

Kain Woodham – Do what

they always do when it arrives in

the too-hard basket . . . throw in a

roundabout. That’s right like the

roundabout on SH1 ‘motorway’

Pegasus. Christchurch has some

of the best drivers and some of

the worst drivers I’ve ever seen.

There is nothing wrong with this

set of lights, it’s just too much

thinking for bad drivers who like

to run reds and shouldn’t be on

our roads. I’m still wondering

how these people get their licence

in Christchurch, seen some

shockers lately.

Global recognition for Burnside student

SCHOOLS

• By Sophie Cornish

BURNSIDE HIGH student

E Wen Wong continues to show

her talents to the world, finishing

fifth at the Future Problem

Solving world championships in

the United States.

When she saw her result at the

championships in Wisconsin, she

got a “complete shock”.

“It took me a while to comprehend,”

she said.

E Wen previously competed in

the competition in 2016, finishing

sixth. She said this year’s competition

was more challenging.

When E Wen returned from

the championships last month,

she started up a community

problem-solving group at her

school. She is training a group of

year 9 students so they can qualify

for the national competition

HAPPY RESULT: E Wen Wong

said she was in “complete

shock” when she heard

she had finished fifth at the

Future Problem Solving world

championships.

next year. The year 11 student is

familiar with international relations,

recently attending a New

Zealand Model United Nations

event in Wellington.

The event involved four days

of workshops, debates, guest

speakers and a taste of life as a

diplomat.

E Wen is in her second year as

one of 10 UN youth high school

ambassadors for the Canterbury

region.

However, her talents aren’t

just limited to competitions and

conferences. Earlier this year

she started designing a robot to

detect plastic in beaches, rivers

and the ocean.

She has received support from

experts at NIWA, ThisDesign

and Limitless who have shown

interest in the project. The robot

is called BIRD – which stands for

Biomimicry Identification Robot

Device – and is also shaped like

a bird.

The plastic can be tagged

and linked to a crowd-sourced

clean-up app that guides rubbish

collectors to dispose of it.

E Wen has been working on

the designs for her robot through

the advocacy organisation she set

up at school, P.S Our Beaches,

which is spreading awareness

about the environment and climate

change.

After school, she wants to

attend university and study a

combination of subjects she is

passionate about, including meteorology,

international law and

environmental law.

ALLENVALE School students

are doing their part for the

Members of the student council

visited Christchurch Hospital’s

basket of knitted clothing.

More than 100 booties, hats

and tops were knitted by staff

members and donated.

Assistant principal Linda King

said students were required to

gather the knitting and take it to

the hospital as part of their community

work.

“It teaches the students one

of our values of generosity. It

teaches them that there’s always

other people out there who need

a hand and some help.”

World Cup call-up for

former Rangi student

as persistence pays off

• By Jacob Page

GOALKEEPER Una Foyle has

had the last laugh over the boys

who wouldn’t pass the ball to

her.

The former Rangi Ruru Girls’

School student, who plays for

Coastal Spirit, was a shock

call-up for the New Zealand

under-20 football World Cup in

France next month.

She joins fellow Coastal Spirit

teammates, defender Rebecca

Lake and utility Talia Herman-

Watt. Watt is the non-travelling

reserve.

Foyle has made the most of

her ability between the goal

posts after making the move to

the position five years ago. “The

boys I was playing with just

stopped passing the ball to me

so my coach put me back in goal

and I guess it’s worked out,” she

said.

Foyle missed the cut for the

first New Zealand under-20 wider

training squad at the start of

the year and thought her chance

had vanished. However, she was

called into the training squad for

the final camp a fortnight ago

and won the right to pack her

bags for France.

“It was a massive shock and

surprise to be named after missing

out initially in the wider

squad,” she said.

“I just kept sending (the coach)

videos of what I was doing down

here and how I was going and I

guess it worked.”

Lake, 19, has been a regular in

the national age-group set-up.

“This is a reward for all of the

early morning sessions and the

late nights,” she said.

“I’ve played against most of

the girls I’m now teammates

with, so at least there will be

familiarity there,” the former

Marian College student said.

Both Foyle and Lake split their

time between Coastal Spirit’s top

women’s side and the 17th grade

boys team.

Under new Coastal Spirit football

development manager Gary

Bennett, the club is making a big

push so girls and women’s football

can prosper next season.

“I have a real passion for girls

and women’s football and have

been heavily involved in it for a

number of years, particularly in

the United States and Canada,”

he said.

“We would love to see girls of

all ages and ability at Coastal,

from mini-football, juniors,

youth through to senior women.

We are particularly looking

to strengthen our numbers to

support our successful women’s

premier league team for next

season,” he said.

Elmwood pupil makes his

mark on world golf stage

• By Jacob Page

ELMWOOD NORMAL School

golfer Cooper Moore has won the

nine and 10-year-old world stars

of junior golf championship in Las

Vegas.

The Russley club player was

one of three Canterbury golfers

to compete in the international

tournament which finished on

Friday.

Everglades golfer Ethan Lam

finished tied for 11th in the same

age-group, while his older brother

Hayden finished seventh in the

11 to 12-year-old boys grade.

The tournament also had golfers

from Thailand, the United States,

Malaysia and England competing

in it.

The players have three nine-hole

rounds on a shortened course

and Cooper finished tied for first

on one over par. Cooper won the

event in a play-off after he earned

a par and his opponent bogeyed

the hole.

“Dad just told me to hit it

straight off the tee and give myself

the best chance to get on the green

and that’s how it played out,”

Cooper said.

It is Cooper’s first international

tournament win since he started

playing the game when he was

five-years-old. He said he admires

three-time major winner, US

golfer Jordan Spieth, and hopes

to one day play on the PGA tour.

Spieth drifted out of contention

and finished tied

for ninth at the British

Open on Monday.

Canterbury Golf

development manager

Rachel Thow

said Cooper had been

progressing well with

his golf game. “His handicap

has gone from 22 to 11

over the past 12 months

which is impressive,”

she said.

The trio are part

of the Canterbury

Golf Xcelerator

squad in which

16 promising

golfers

between the

ages of 10 and

16 train under

coach Rodney

Yee.

Cooper will keep

hitting balls during he

keep improving.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

The tree of LIFE

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times, new

research has shown that neurons can grow

back with the right conditions and that a

special extract of Gingko Biloba (EGb-761

or TEBONIN) has been clinically found to

assist in this. The implications for stroke

recovery are obvious, but researchers also

know many of us suffer from undetected

“micro-strokes” that over a period of time

slowly reduce

our cognitive

function.

TEBONIN

is prescribed

worldwide

as a natural

supportive agent

for a healthy brain

and cognitive

function.

It supports

healthy mental

performance,

concentration,

focus, alertness,

motor function

and to help with

many conditions

including tinnitus

(ringing and noise

in the ears), vertigo and normal balance.

TEBONIN improves micro-circulation

and helps the blood flow reach those

critical places it needs to get. It is a potent

anti-oxidant and makes the red blood

cells more pliable and capillary walls more

flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented

multi-step extraction process. Each small

tablet contains a highly concentrated

50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic

clinical dose without having to take a large

amount of the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba

products on the market, and tested by a

major medical journal, only TEBONIN

passed all five of the test requirements.

Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements

and the rest didn’t pass more than three

out of five requirements. TEBONIN is

the only Gingko biloba extract shown

to activated all areas of the brain and is

considered the gold standard in Gingko.

TEBONIN has been trusted by millions

of consumers worldwide for over 30

years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

TEBONIN and further information

is available from the Natural Health

Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural

Therapy in New Brighton. PH: 388-5757.

They are always happy to help!

The importance of

good blood pressure?

Blood Pressure is an

indicator of cardiovascular

as well as overall health.

Healthy blood flow is vital for

a healthy body as the blood

plasma transports nutrients,

hormones, metabolic waste,

oxygen and CO2 throughout

the body. An area in the brain

keeps check on blood flow

to ensure health of all cells

and the organs they make up.

If blood flow is reduced the

brain will try to normalise

blood flow by adjusting the

heart strength, frequency

(Pulse Rate) as well as the width of blood

vessels all via the central nervous system.

Over a period of time the blood pressure

may increase due to the deterioration of

blood flow and other factors. A higher B/P

is not ideal and is considered a major risk

factor for strokes, aneurysm, organ failure

and heart failure. Even moderate elevation

of B/P is considered a major reason for

shorter life expectancy. If we can maintain

our B/P in the normal range our overall

health will be improved. Systolic B/P (The

upper figure) is when the heart contracts

and pushes blood around the body. Ideally

at rest this should be between 100 to 120.

The diastolic B/P (The lower figure) is the

pressure in the arteries between beats and

ideally at rest this should be between 60

to 70.

BOOST BRAIN

PERFORMANCE UP TO 30%

TEBONIN is the No 1 Ginkgo Biloba extract in the World with more than 8 million tablets

being consumed every day. It is also the most researched herbal extract with more than 60

controlled clinical studies & over 400 scientific studies. It has been shown to have excellent

efficacy, safety & tolerability. Millions of consumers have trusted TEBONIN for over 30

years to support blood flow, capillary health, brain health & performance.

Studies on TEBONIN Show:

- Improved Brain Performance & Function up to 30%. This includes improvement

in mental sharpness, focus, attention, concentration, understanding, memory & recall.

- Reduces errors made & mental stress.

- The only Ginkgo shown to increase activity in all areas of the brain. Can help restore

brain function after a brain injury such as from a stroke.

- Helps relieve tinnitus (ringing & noise in the ears), vertigo, dizziness & supports normal

balance.

- Improves blood flow to all areas of the body.

- Reduces plaque formation in the blood vessels.

- Protective effect against eyes damage caused by light.

It has been found in around 90% of

cases high blood pressure is caused by

an increase in the resistance to blood

flow in the blood vessels. It is believed

inflammation, plaque build-up and

stiffness of the blood vessels are major

reasons for this increased resistance.

Checking our blood pressure on a

regular basis allows us to adjust our diet,

supplements and lifestyle and to see the

benefits in our B/P readings.

Blood Pressure monitors, natural

supplements and further information

on how to optimise your overall health

and B/P naturally is available from the

Keeping our blood pressure (B/P) in the normal range is a positive sign of good health. The higher the B/P above normal the more

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves whic had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A W OLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Gart hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking t operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the challenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

IT COULD be some time before

charges are laid in relation to the

fatal hit-and-run in Dallington.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg

Cottam said yesterday the vehicle

involved in the crash last week

was still being examined.

He said there was still a lot of

work to do to gather all the information

and finish police inquiries

before any charges would be laid.

“They can take some time,” he

said.

“We’ve got six months to lay

charges in relation to traffic offending

– it certainly won’t take

that long.”

Steffan Pearce-

Loe (right), 30, was

hit by a vehicle

near the Gayhurst

Rd bridge while

walking his dogs at

about 2.30am last

Thursday.

He died in hospital

from his injuries on Friday.

His funeral was held on Tuesday.

Police found the vehicle

involved, which had damage

consistent with the crash, on Saturday.

A detective saw it parked

up a driveway.

The vehicle’s owner, who was

driving, has been interviewed by

police.

Detective Senior Sergeant Cottam

remained tight-lipped about

the driver. •Turn to page 6
