Petition launched to save Woolston PostShop BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

noR’WESt nEWS Joe Davies

A last-ditch attempt is being made to save the Woolston PostShop. Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board member Joe Davies has started a petition opposing the closure. If the shop is closed the Kiwibank services will be removed from Woolston. He said the PostShop had to stay. “Woolston is an area that has been heavily affected in recent years by the earthquake, and for the Government to pull public investment from the area is a real blow to the community.”

Last month New Zealand Post revealed its plan to close the Woolston branch. It said it would expand postal and banking services in Ferrymead instead. But residents and business owners want the shop to stay. They are outraged at the plan, saying it was well used and elderly people would now have to catch a taxi to do their banking. Mr Davies said the petition would be presented to the community board on Wednesday and needed residents and business owners to sign it. He will be in the area collecting

signatures from 9am-4pm today and is aiming to get more than 100. He hopes the board will resolve in some way to make it clear to the city council and Government that it is not in the interest of Woolston for the PostShop to close. “We’re seeing cuts to services across the city, this is all part of a bigger scheme of austerity. An austerity forced upon the people due to a natural disaster.” NZ Post is looking for a tenant to fill the PostShop building to run the postal services.

Residents pleased review may not split Addington BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD


McMaster Heap

Veterinary practice


HE month of August is “DENTAL” month at McMaster and Heap Vets. We realise the importance of sparkling teeth, fresh breath and healthy gums in your pet. Most pet owners don’t thoroughly check their pets mouth therefore it is up to us as vets to examine each tooth looking for signs of plaque, tartar buildup, erosive lesions (holes in the enamel), fractured or diseased teeth, dead teeth and missing teeth. We also carefully examine up under the gum margin checking for exposed roots and we assess the gums, tonsils and tongue for ulcers, cancers, injury, infection, cysts and many more. Most cats and dogs continue to eat normally with a sore, diseased mouth. They will often have normal appetites, energy levels and interact and play as per usual. Some clinical signs you may experience are a terrible breath, drooling saliva more than usual with wet looking lips, rubbing of the mouth along surfaces, not wanting to pick up and play with toys or bones and maybe a bit head shy. You may also notice your pet is eating more slowly or refusing dry food, preferring only the soft variety.

examination under general anaesthesia, scale and polish and digital dental xrays if warranted. Once the tartar was scaled off her teeth looked great. We probed all her teeth checking for erosive lesions, fractures or decay. One lower premolar tooth looked slightly discoloured (this can mean the tooth is dead) so we xrayed the premolar teeth on the left side. The tooth in question had abnormal tooth roots on xray so it was removed and the socket sutured closed. All Sam’s teeth looked worn down and blunt, which can happen in dogs who chew stones or bones a lot. I think through hard chewing she had damaged this premolar’s roots causing her neurogenic pain and possibly infection, resulting in difficulty eating anything hard. Sam was discharged on antibiotics, antiinflammatories and pain medications. Hopefully she will make a full recovery and be back to devouring her food. Preventative homecare is a vital part of keeping your pet’s teeth and gums healthy. At McMaster & Heap we recommend dental biscuits designed to clean teeth and fight plaque as well as tooth brushing in some instances. There are also toys, mouth washes and treats designed to help with plaque control. So bring in your treasured friend for a FREE dental assessment with a skilled nurse. If dental surgery is advised you will receive a FREE bag of dental dry

Addington residents are pleased their community might not be split as a result of the representation review. The review looks at the geographic boundaries and the population of each ward, ward names and the number of councillors and community board members who are elected. In the initial draft wards the Addington community was to be split, with Lincoln Rd as the boundary – but residents said Lincoln Rd was the heart of the

heritage when communities are split, and an shared an overall consensus that they wanted Addington to remain in one ward. A letter outlining the findings of the meeting was sent to the SpreydonHeathcote Community Board. “It was good work from the Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board because they listened,” Ms Davies said. Public submissions on the draft proposal opens on August 26 and a final proposal will be adopted in mid-November.

Recently I saw a fabulous 11 year old black Labrador, Sam, who for the past month had been eating her dry food rather slowly. She would pick up kibble and drop it, taking ages to get through her days food—very unlike a Labrador! Canned food wasn’t a problem. Her clinical exam was normal although her breath wasn’t fresh! She had moderate tartar on all her teeth but her gums looked healthy. She resented me checking out her mouth thoroughly, which was unlike her. Her blood and urine tests were unremarkable. She was admitted for a dental

community, rather than the border. The new draft plans released last month shows the border to be Blenheim Rd. Addington Neighbourhood Association member Cherylan Davies said the community was happy with the changes. “They’ve kept Addington’s integrity intact.” The Addington Wellbeing group hosted a meeting in April for community members to discuss their concerns about the draft proposals.

St Mark’s School looking for new deputy principal


▌IN ▌ BRIEF Bus shelter

City council staff are looking into whether a solid back can be put on a bus shelter on the corner of Lyttelton and Rose Sts in Hoon Hay. The bus shelter has a mesh back, and because it backs onto Centennial Park, there is little shelter for those waiting for buses. A lot of Cashmere View Retirement Village residents use the stop. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board raised the issue with the city council which will come back to the board with its findings.

Kart club relocation cost

Prestigious award for Sammy Linwood College student Sammy O’Hara has been awarded the prestigious Sandy Beverley Memorial Award for best saxophone soloist at the Southern Jam Youth Jazz Festival held in Blenheim. Linwood was one of 15 schools from around the South Island to compete at the festival. Linwood sent a jazz combo, led by Sammy, and a jazz band to the festival which took place over four days from August 5. Linwood College’s long involvement in the competition is an annual highlight for jazz students.

The city council has agreed to cover part of the cost to move the Canterbury Kart Club to a new location. It has agreed to put up $3.5 million for the kart club and $450,000 towards costs of moving the Canterbury Greyhound club to a new site, so more housing can be built in the area. However, costs of moving the kart club to a more suitable location has been estimated to be around $7.4 million. City council has put a time limit on acceptance of the offer.

Roadworks closure

Part of Palatine Tce, St Martins, will be closed for four weeks starting today while the earthquake-damaged road, footpath and kerbs are being repaired. A detour will be in place via Buxton Tce, Kowhai Tce and Centaurus Rd. The work is expected to be finished by September 11.

Xmas lights planned for Beckenham tree BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

A plan to light up Beckenham at Christmas is underway. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board decided to allocate up to $2000 from its discretionary response fund to pay for light emitting diode (LED) lights for a tree in the area. Deputy chairwoman Karolin Potter brought up the idea at the board’s last meeting. The board members decided to put the money towards lights for the tree outside the Beckenham Service Centre. It will also write to businesses in local shopping centres to ask if they can support the idea through labour, equipment, lights or money to provide LED lights for other trees in the area. The board hopes they will be up and running by Christmas. Community board member Helene Mautner said the idea was “lovely”. “Little things like that actually bring a lot to the community. It brings smiles to their faces.”

Cashmere celebrates history and leaders BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD Cashmere High School students, staff, past principals and Ngai Tahu representatives have come together for a special presentation. A korowai was gifted to the school on August 6 by the kahui, which is a group comprised of former students, parents, teachers and current students. It represents the wairua, mana and land of the school and acknowledges its history. A ceremony was held in the school’s Performing Arts Centre where Mereana Moki Kiwa Hutchen (Aunty Kiwa) and Sir Tipene O’Regan, of Ngai Tahu, helped present it. The ceremony acknowledged the school’s history and leaders, and former principals Dave Turnbull, Ron Chapman and John Murdoch came back to the school for the occasion. Assistant principal Joe Eccleton said not only was it a symbol of the past, but also how the school had

moved forward. “It was very special.” He said a korowai is a symbol of office and authority of the person who wears it, and it would be worn for special occasions such as prizegivings or when a special guest visited the school. Sir Tipene had previously visited the school to bless its taonga and to discuss the importance of critical thinking with the students. He blessed and presented the korowai and made a speech. Mr Eccleton said it was an honour to have Aunty Kiwa at the school and Sir Tipene’s speech was amazing. “It was quite a highlight for us for him to come, he holds a lot of mana.” He said the Maori culture at the school was building. “We’re definitely building, and that’s what we’re trying to do.” Students and staff then performed a haka together to the korowai and principals.

HONOUR: Former Cashmere High School principals Dave Turnbull (left), Ron Chapman and John Murdoch (right) came back and joined current principal Mark Wilson at the ceremony.

Funding granted for Asian language programmes Hillview Christian School, Marian College and Catholic Cathedral College have received funding to establish more Asian language programmes. Education Minister Hekia Parata announced last week the money will go towards establishing Mandarin, Japanese or Korean programmes, or expanding existing ones. The schools are among 22 groups

of schools across the country to get the funding. “The first funding round has generated real enthusiasm for Asian languages in classrooms,” Ms Parata said. “Twenty-two programmes involving 129 schools will receive a total of $3.3m over the next three years.” The Government established the

$10m Asian Language Learning in Schools contestable fund last year to increase the provision of Asian languages in schools. “Many of the primary and secondary schools are working together to provide a pathway for students to keep developing language proficiency throughout their school life,” Ms Parata said. “I’ve been impressed with the

innovative ways that schools are sharing teaching skills and resources. Some groups are bringing students together over the internet, using virtual classrooms to overcome geographical barriers. “There are cognitive and cultural benefits to learning a second language and Asian Language Learning in Schools is just one of several government initiatives that will en-

courage a multi-lingual New Zealand,” she said. “The programmes that won funding will begin next year. Eligibility for the second round of funding is being extended to include all Asian languages.” Applications for the second round have opened and schools have until September 25 to register their interest.

Keep looking when you’re cooking BY MARK THOMAS – FIRE RISK MANAGEMENT OFFICER

ENTREPRENEURS: The winning team in Cashmere High School’s competition created a wireless information transferring system.

Business plan success Cashmere High School students got a taste of the business world as part of the BP Business Challenge. The year 10 and 11 students spent three days in a practical workshop in the school library recently where they worked in teams to create a business plan for a new product. Each group then had to pitch their ideas before the judges in a Dragons Den-style presentation where they were marked on each part of their plan and overall presentation.

The BP Business Challenge is offered to more than 45 schools throughout New Zealand each year. It is run by the Young Enterprise Trust, a charity which is encouraging and developing New Zealand’s next generation of entrepreneurs and business people. The group WITS came out on top with its idea for a wireless information transferring system. The system allows users to share data, similar to a pay wave card with USB functions. The group was made up of Ben

Blackmore, Daniel Siemers, Caitie Ward, Lewis Elliott, Frey Anderson, Georgie Kirton and Daniel Oorschot. BP is the major sponsor of the programme and the David Levene Foundation, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, University of Otago and Xero are supporting sponsors. The next step for teams is the Young Enterprise Scheme if they choose to pursue that where they would compete against teams from other schools.

The Bed Shop

The week has been reasonably quiet with season-related incidents including chimney fires and false alarms. The latter included systems proving faulty and people reporting things that turned out to be steam thought to be smoke and red lights thought to be fire. We also attended quite a number of ambulance back-up calls. There were only a couple of cooking fires, both around dinner time and both involving people leaving the kitchen with the stove-top heating food. The advice never changes. Stay with the food you’re cooking or as the old mantra said: “Keep looking when you’re cooking.’’ A spectacular fire on Richmond Hill last Saturday morning occurred in a house with subsidence underneath and the real risk of the entire property slipping away. The danger of entry meant we were called a couple of further times to the same place for smouldering and re-ignition. It goes without saying really that the safety of our firefighters trumps the close-up turnover

DANGER: Leaving pots unattended on a stove-top greatly increases the chance of a fire.

and damp down that complete fire extinguishment often requires. That the fire was probably the result of arson just makes us a bit more frustrated and angry. A digger involved in the demolition of a house in Lower Styx Rd on Tuesday caught fire and the operator stood helplessly as hydraulic fluid ignited and spread to completely involve the machine. Brooklands and St Albans crews could only put out the remains when they arrived. Not a good day for the digger driver.

Top sustainable house opens in Addington One of the country’s most sustainable and energy-efficient houses has opened its doors in Addington. The house has a 10 Homestar Built rating and developer and architectural designer, Bob Burnett, plans to share the design and build information with anyone who wants to create their own sustainable home. The 140 sq m, two-storey home in Church Square, was officially launched on August 5 and is open to the public for about a year. This is the first 10 Homestar Built rating awarded in New Zealand; the first 10 Homestar Design rating was awarded to a Belvedere Group show home in May. Launched in 2010, Homestar is the independent system that rates the health, comfort and efficiency of New Zealand homes, on a scale of 1-10. It takes into account energy, water, waste, ventilation, health and comfort, and other environmental factors, at both design and built stage. There are currently around 200 Homestar-rated projects throughout the country. The Christchurch show home had achieved a nine Homestar Design rating in April, but Mr Burnett and his team achieved the 10 Homestar Built rating by building on their existing initiatives and providing more comprehen-

Mr Burnett said building highquality green houses should be standard practice in New Zealand, and over the next few months, will begin sharing technology and construction methods on the SUPERHOME website (www. “Energy-efficiency, thermal comfort, a healthy indoor environment and affordability should be basic requirements for a home – and Homestar’s independent rating is crucial for us to demonstrate the house’s many sustainability credentials,” he said. The home features a combined

grey water and rainwater system, water-efficient fittings, photovoltaic solar power and energy-efficient lighting and electronics. All paints and sealants are low VOC, and other materials are certified by Environmental Choice NZ or Forest Stewardship Council. A solar wall ventilation system uses the sun’s energy to pre-heat ventilation air, substantially reducing heating expenses. Slab-edge insulation (to stop heat loss from concrete floor slabs) and innovative hydronic underfloor heating also keep the home snug.


CLOSE: The Hillmorton High School year 7/8 rugby league side has finished second in the intermediate schools’ competition. They played Chisnallwood Intermediate in the final, losing 28-16. There was silver lining however, with Sam Vaioge being named player of the tournament. He was presented with the award by Canterbury Rugby League’s Nick Le Compte. • More sport, page 11

▌IN ▌ BRIEF Parking restrictions

The Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board will decide whether to approve parking restrictions on the southern side of Hobson St, Woolston, at Wednesday’s meeting. The street is a 6m wide cul-de-sac which runs off Hopkins St, and residents are concerned with the lack of space when cars are parking on both sides. Since Woolston and Phillipstown schools merged the situation has become worse.

A passion for hairdressing drives salon’s growth

Starting out in Barbadoes Street in 2008 with a team of three, Evolve Hair & Beauty has gone from strength to strength since moving to Homebase in Marshlands Road, says owner Tracey Barnao.


racey, who has been in the industry since 1995, says hairdressing has been her passion from a young age, and that she is still as passionate as she was then, if not more so. Before owning her own salon, she was the South Island colour technician for Redken, training hairdressers with Redken products.


Her new business had been going for almost two years when the Christchurch earthquake hit and they had to leave their salon. After making Homebase the new location for Evolve Hair & Beauty two years ago, they have grown to a team of 13, including 10 senior stylists and two intermediate stylists training towards their qualifications.

is not only known as a place to get a haircut, but also somewhere you can relax with an espresso or tea, and the latest magazine in hand. “We need our clients to leave the salon not only with amazing hair and beauty, but with the right products to recreate the styles at home as we don’t all have the luxury of an at-home stylist. In the salon, we believe we use the best products available – Redken, Pureology, GHD, Cuccio beauty products, Quoi makeup, O Cosmetics and Orly Gel FX. There is plenty of parking and the salon is open seven days with three late nights. Opening hours are Monday, 9am to 2pm; Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 9am to 8pm; Friday, 9am to 5pm; Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 4pm.

“I feel training is crucial to success as there is always something to learn, whether you are qualified or not. We attend regular training opportunities both inside and outside of the salon,” Tracey says. The salon’s hair services range from colouring, cutting, colour correction, perming, straightening and extensions to styling for weddings and school balls, while fully qualified beautician Kayla provides waxing, spray tans, makeup artistry, acrylic and gel nails and pedicures. “A great haircut isn’t enough to keep a client any more as there are a lot of salons within kilometres. At Evolve Hair & Beauty, we understand the importance of giving the very best haircut and exceptional customer service.” Tracey sees forming great relationships with clients as vital, so Evolve Hair & Beauty

These stunning lovebite full upper and lower dentures have been expertly crafted by internationally-recognised dental technician Richard Greenlees at his Christchurch studio.

Sovereign Star Nursery and Preschool


orking in partnership with families to support the children in their care to reach their full potential is the foundation of the learning philosophy at Sovereign Star Nursery and Preschool. Everyday’s programme and each child’s assessment are designed with this outcome in mind. It’s thanks to the staff ’s professionalism and passion about high-quality early childhood education that this new Kaiapoi nursery and preschool has grown considerably over the past few months, more quickly than even the management expected. The teachers are inspired by the new ideas and new approaches that are now an integral part of early childhood education. It’s also great that they work in a specific-to-purpose, light, bright and airy facility, full of wonderful resources and equipment. The babies’ nursery is specially designed to recreate a calm home-like culture and the staff are dedicated to nurturing the infants in their care.

The centre maintains a high ratio of teachers to children to ensure an environment where the children have the opportunity to develop a lifelong love of learning. Central to this learning is music, art, dance, drama and storytelling through which children acquire verbal, perceptual, numeric, spatial and motor skills. The Sovereign Star Preschool offers affordable fees, which include morning and afternoon tea and lunch. Sovereign Star offers 20 hours free ECE and opens from Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm. To learn more about the Sovereign Star Nursery and Preschool on Williams Street, Kaiapoi, you can call on 021 0295 1364 or 03 260 1023, email or visit

BOOGIE: Hillmorton High School’s year 7 and 8 hip hop group Full Proof has been practicing hard for the school’s dance showcase, Shine, in September. The students had to audition for the group and have been practicing after school with an outside tutor to prepare for it. Deputy principal Eleanor Sim said dance is very strong at the school and students can do it throughout the year levels. “It is a very popular subject and there is a ballet extension class and also this auditioned hip hop group.”

CPIT artwork inspired by Cashmere Hills

The Cashmere Hills have provided inspiration for a new piece of artwork which will feature in Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology’s new Engineering and Architectural Studies facility.

The art work which has been specially made for CPIT is a feather. New Zealand artist Niki Hastings-McFall was inspired by the function of the new building and the its name, Kahukura, which refers to a chiefly cloak made of feathers, a rainbow and the ancestor of the Cashmere Hills, which the building will look towards. “Because this work is to be positioned in a facility dedicated to architecture and engineering I wanted to create work that referred to the construction, design, structure and incredible natural engineering of the feather itself as opposed to a more literal representation,” Ms HastingsMcFall said. The artwork, named Hope Fully Fledged, will be very visible, suspended high in the building’s atrium above a wide, central stairway. The design will play with light, shadow and colour. Ms Hastings-McFall has also associated the possibility of flight with hope; she drew further inspiration from poet Emily Dickinson. “In Emily Dickinson’s poem, feathers symbolise the feeling of hope. Hope, just like education, allows people to break free, to fly away to new beginnings. Education and the pursuit of knowledge confer hope and allow our dreams reality.” With work in collections of Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Auckland Art Gallery, The Dowse Art Museum, Queensland Gallery of Modern Art and the British Museum, Ms Hastings-McFall has been credited with helping to bring contemporary Pacific art to national promi-

Her latest work will complement the three-storey, Kahukura building designed by Jasmax to provide an inspirational environment for CPIT’s student architectural designers, engineers, interior designers and quantity surveyors. Kahukura will cater for

about 1000 people and is scheduled for completion in late 2016. The commission, by the CPIT Artwork Collection Committee, is part of a programme of artistic enrichment included in the Campus Master Plan programme of rebuilding and refurbishment CPIT’s campuses.

Not all first aid certificates

are created equal While first aid courses must achieve prescribed New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) standards to be certified, not all training providers deliver the same course.


here can be big differences in first aid courses between a range of training providers. Some courses range from teaching only the basic NZQA specified content and nothing else, to providing detailed and comprehensive content designed to familiarise participants to a wide range of likely emergencies. Providers offering shortened courses or courses not meeting NZQA training requirements are now in the spotlight. NZQA and the Department of Labour have published a factsheet to outline requirements for providers, learners and employers for first aid training based on currently registered NZQA unit standards. Below are a summary of what we think you should know. Course differences Training providers can market their courses under a wide range of names such as Essential First Aid, Workplace First Aid or Comprehensive First Aid and many other eye-catching titles. The term workplace can vary from a small office to a large factory where the risks and potential injuries are just as wide. Employers should be cautious in thinking that a one-day workplace first aid course will meet their needs in industries such as construction, engineering, forestry and industrial. More advanced learning is important to meet the proper workplace assessments and meet health and safety obligations. The content of courses can also vary. Employers should check to see the first aid course is relevant to their particular industry risks. If there are risks of falling, or medium to high injury, then take careful look in the shortened courses as these subjects may not be covered. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that employees attend courses appropriate to their industry risks. Unit standard-based first aid training These are the minimum requirements for both the initial and refresher training. The minimum duration of first Raewyn Clegg aid training and Registered Teacher of assessment will be for Piano and Theory of training based on: Music. • Unit standards 6400, 6401 (or 26552) 29 Lancewood Drive and 6402 (or 26551), Halswell a minimum of 12 Ph 322-9377

hours’ training and assessment • Unit standards 6401 (or 26551) and 6402 (or 26552), a minimum of eight hours’ training and assessment • For refresher training, where the learner’s certificate is no older than two years and three months from date of issue, a minimum of six hours’ training and assessment. First aid training must cover the outcomes of the NZQA first aid unit standards being assessed and any additional modules identified by the employer through the workplace risk assessment process as outlined in Department of Labour guidelines. Only first aid training providers accredited by NZQA can award the credits and issue a first aid certificate. Care needs to be taken to ensure that the provider is actually registered with NZQA for this purpose. NZQA conduct regular External Evaluative Reviews on all training providers. New Zealand Red Cross is proud to hold a double Highly Confident accreditation in both Educational Performance and Capability in Self-Assessment. This means that NZ Red Cross is a Category One training provider. First aid refresher training Refresher training is required every two years to maintain the certificates. This is

a requirement and not something for the provider to decide. The requirement allows for a three-month period of grace, so the cut off period is two years and three months which should allow sufficient time to enrol onto a suitable course. The refresher training should ensure the certificate holder is current in first aid practice appropriate to their individual workplace requirements. If a certificate is not renewed for more than three calendar months from the second anniversary date of issue, it will be necessary for the certificate holder to complete full first aid training to maintain currency. For the purposes of workplace first aid emergency management, employers will need to ensure that their first aid personnel maintain competency at all times.

Foam concrete and healthy homes


anterbury Foam Concrete Limited is a locally owned and operated firm which understands the problems caused by rising damp and is there to help. A great number of houses in Christchurch have a problem with rising damp. Most timber floor houses built before the mid-1970s have scant underfloor insulation or nothing at all. Many of them have been built in areas that were previously swamp, and a persistent high water table compounds the problem. Independent tests have shown that every 24 hours, up to 40 litres of water can rise from the ground and enter a house. This moisture will show up in several ways such as mildew, mold growth, condensation, musty odours and, in the long term, a gradual deterioration of the building. More importantly, there is a growing

awareness among health experts that dampness, rather than cold, produces health problems. In most homes, steps will have been taken to insulate the ceiling and wall cavities, but problems will continue unless rising damp is treated at the source. Sealing the ground with foam concrete is an effective answer. Foam concrete is free-flowing and easy to pump into confined areas such as the cavity below a wooden floor, where poor ventilation and lack of subfloor insulation combine with damp ground to create excessive water vapour transmission or rising damp. Foam concrete requires no surface finishing and does not hinder the installation of other services. Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd for more information on 03 376 4608 or 0508 362 626.

Smooth-Air offers homes with

all-day comfort


owadays, we want warm, wellinsulated and brightly lit homes, but modern family living can lead to high levels of moisture in our tightly constructed houses. Baths, showers, cooking and even our own perspiration can increase the humidity and moisture to much higher levels, resulting in condensation and homes that are more difficult to heat. The experts at Smooth-Air have designed a cost-effective solution, specific to New Zealand’s conditions. The Dry-Matic system is perfect for new or existing builds and rental accommodation. Usually installed in under half a day and once fitted, costs as little as 10 cents a day to run. The Dry-Matic works in a number of ways. It replaces stale, moist air with clean, dry air; reduces the concentration of airborne dust mites and allergens; channels solar energy from roof and ceiling spaces into cooler living spaces

P m A D g n i s i AttAck R the source

and reduces concentrations of outgassing from new furniture and building materials. Asthma sufferers may receive real relief, furniture and furnishings can be protected from moisture damage and the system offers security as doors and windows can remain closed while the Dry-Matic circulates fresh, dry air around the house. For more information, contact SmoothAir at 264 Annex Road, call 0800 SMOOTH (0800 766 684) or visit

Something special, something private, something just for you Avonhead, 291C Avonhead Road Auction: September 03, 2015

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 1 office/study | 2-car garage | Listing #: PI55700


et in a secluded rear site on Avonhead Road, this well-designed contemporary family home offers good living with space and comfort to spare. Built over two levels, this is a home that takes every advantage of the light and sun with its north-facing aspect. From the portico entrance through to the well-proportioned kitchen, the expansive living and dining spaces, this is a home that is designed to make it easy to entertain, inside and out, with great access to the established grounds. Built on a large scale and featuring four large double bedrooms and an office, or additional single bedroom, three bathrooms, two living areas and a separate dining area, this well-specified and well-presented home does not stint on space. The TC1 land features private, walled grounds of 1355m2 that have been beautifully landscaped to include mature perimeter planting, a good sized lawn and a hardwood deck with built-in seating where you can fire up the barbecue this summer. This home is located right in the zone for the popular schools of Westburn Primary, Merrin Primary, Cobham Intermediate, Burnside High School and just a short drive or cycle to the University of Canterbury, and the benefit of the airport within easy reach. Its proximity to retail, services, schools and recreational areas will make it a popular choice for many, while its lock and leave capability is certainly a bonus. Our owner

is motivated to sell so those serious about getting a head start will need to register their interest before a prior offer sees it miss the auction room altogether. Open Home dates: Saturday and Sunday, 1pm to 1.30pm. See you at the open home or before for a private viewing contact Cameron Bailey of Harcourts Gold Papanui (Licensed Agent REAA 2008) on 352 6166 or mobile 0275 557 079.
