 Cashmere intersection    concerns  motorists ‘I won’t engage in the game of chicken that is trying to turn right onto Cashmere Rd at peak times.’ Leona Murahidy BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Residents say trying to turn right at a busy Cashmere intersection is like playing a game of ‘chicken.’ Hill residents find it too difficult to turn right out of Hackthorne Rd onto Cashmere Rd at peak times because of the traffic volumes. Cashmere Residents Association secretary Leona Murahidy


said it had been an issue since the early 2000s. “I won’t engage in the game of chicken that is trying to turn right onto Cashmere Rd at peak times,� she said. “That is really dangerous, everyone is frightened of it.� The intersection is controlled by a stop sign. She said the roundabout at the bottom of Dyers Pass Rd was always so congested that

residents could not drive over the hill to use that intersection instead. The problem is causing motorists to turn left out of Hackthorne Rd onto Cashmere Rd, and right onto Fairview St and right again onto Rose St. But now those streets, particularly Rose St, are becoming congested due to the increase in traffic.

“We’ve been trying to get attention since about 2000 and its not getting any better and it can only get worse.� Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board member Rik Tindall said it was the number one concern for residents in Cashmere. He would like to see traffic signals or a roundabout put at the intersection.

She said it was time for the city council to take note and do something.

New development aims to attract high-end stores

Rejuvenating Sydenham

A new Sydenham commercial development has plans to bring high-end stores and eateries to the area. Owner Samir Govind said the development for 439 Colombo St is going through the resource consent process and is looking at securing tenants. Mr Govind said the aim of the planned development is to attract more quality retailers into the Sydenham area. Plans show the 350 sq m building will have zinc cladding with a blue stone paved courtyard. Before the earthquakes an old building on the site homed Selwyn Dealers and Herbal Heaven. It will have three hospitality spaces including a retail shop opening out to Colombo St, a corner café or food outlet and a

tract high-end hospitality and retailers to Sydenham.” Colombo St continues to be an important spine which connects the central city through to Cashmere. The challenge remains to strike a balance between the traffic congestion along this route, its movement needs as a city bus priority route, and the need to support a pedestrian and business-friendly environment, said Mr Govind. Harcourts Grenadier is currently taking expressions of interest from tenants. Mr Govind said once tenants had been secured they would know when construction could start, but hoped it would be open by the end of next year.

WOMAN HURT IN CRASH A woman in her 40s was taken to hospital with moderate injuries after a two-vehicle crash in Sydenham last Monday. St John was called to the intersection of Brougham St and Waltham Rd at about 4.30pm where the two cars had collided. St John assessed three patients, but only one was taken to hospital. NZ POST RESPONDS New Zealand Post group chief executive Brian Roche has written back to the Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board regarding the closure of the Woolston PostShop. The board wrote to him after plans to move the postal services to another Woolston business and move banking services to Ferrymead were revealed. Mr Roche said nearby teams in Phillipstown, St Martins, Eastgate and Ferrymead would be there to help Woolston residents, and banking would be available online, by phone and through the Woolston ATM. SMALL FIRE IN BUILDING Two fire crews from Addington and Sockburn were called to a small fire inside a commercial building on Blenheim Rd on Tuesday. Crews were called out at about 1pm. Fire communications shift manager Tim Reynolds said it was a small fire and crews were there less than an hour. He did not know the cause of the fire but said it was not being investigated further.

Labour responds to points raised in Nuk Korako’s column last week

SOAP BOX Port Hills Labour MP Ruth Dyson One year on from the 2014 election and what has happened in those 12 months? We have recently heard the long awaited announcement about the post-CERA governance arrangements for our city, with the establishment of a Development Agency (central and local government partnership with a commercial board) and the gradual transition of decision-making powers and responsibilities back to our local authorities and agencies. This is a good plan and should provide much needed clarity for investors looking at our city. It’s a disappointment that central Government has decided that it’s “too risky” for us to have the democratic rights that all other New Zealanders have to elect our own regional council, in spite of promising that restoration previously.

We need more certainty around the anchor projects, which have been the subject of unexplained delays. This is hindering private investment, as is the lack of progress on the cathedral. The city council is progressing well with developments in the suburbs, including community centres and libraries which is fantastic to see. St Martins will soon benefit from the return of a PostShop, but Woolston is set to lose its banking and bill payments facility which is a blow to local businesses and residents. While we celebrate the buildings and the return of activity in our city, we know that still, too many people are stuck in the EQC or insurance limbo land. This has caused frustration and exhaustion for so many people and is unjustified and unfair. I have helped hundreds of constituents sort these issues out and I’m always happy to assist with EQC or any other matters. There is still plenty to be done! Let’s enjoy the warmer weather and keep looking out for each other.

Ask Labour a question

Email our reporter and we will forward that question. bridget.rutherford@starmedia. kiwi

Gary Knight: The Sydenham Master Plan 2012 stated Sydenham was emerging as a unique gateway to central city, amid a thriving retail and business area supporting a diverse community. It will retain its unique identity and evolve as a centre for start-up business development serving and supporting local industries and residential development. This heralds the potential of this revered suburb as a future CBD hub. It is logical therefore that business owners, residents and the Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board oppose the siting of a waste transfer station in their area. As with Skelly Holdings demolition yard, and an Auckland-based Christchurch-operated crematorium, this latest venture would also disperse offensive matters into the atmosphere. The 900 signatures plus a street march and protest bore testimony to the level of opposition to this waste station deemed as a blot on the Sydenham urban landscape. It is demeaning to this community, that parochial and insensitive attitudes by the city council and Environment Canterbury would consider a 10-year resource

consent for discharging dust and odours from the KiwiRail-owned structure destined for the waste station transfer venture. The latest revelation of closure of this case by the Environment Court raises queries. The change of sentiments by Lahmajou Company initially appealing resource consent application for this venture, but now rescinding this appeal, not only highlights the parochial attitudes of many over this issue, but further ignores and demeans viewpoints of many opposing this business venture. Lack of foresight prevails by approval of this site as opposed to the myriad of vacant rural land facilities in the western sector of Christchurch. Not being adjacent to residential owners or small business entities would match protocol on the siting of the other three transfer stations.

It has been about eight months since Phillipstown and Woolston schools merged to form Te Waka Unua School. When Education Minister

Hekia Parata announced Phillipstown School would close, public outcry and a court case followed. Many parents were concerned over the loss of school identity, safety of children and the effect of upheaval. How do you think the merger has gone? Email or comment on our Facebook page at

neighbourhood NEWS Plans for Huntsbury section stall


News tips? Email or phone 371 0778


A mystery surrounds why no money has been put aside by the city council to turn a grassy Huntsbury section into a playground and community space. There were originally plans, in 2013, to turn the grassed space in between the two Huntsbury reservoirs, on Huntsbury Ave, into some sort of community area. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board discussed late last month at a meeting what had happened to the plans for the site. But the city council told Southern View there was no money set aside in the Long Term Plan for development of

they were perplexed about the problem. Mr McMahon said the space between the reservoirs had be-

come overgrown and the board had requested an update from the city council. “For some reason they have put up giant gates, I’m perplexed as to why that is.” City council staff and the Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board will now meet to discuss development options for the space. The original reservoir, which holds some of the city’s drinking water, sustained earthquake damage and it was redesigned into two smaller reservoirs. A concept plan for the grassy space in between the two was presented to the board in 2013 which included entertainment and playground facilities.

BRIDGE REPAIRS Repairs to Wilsons Rd bridge in St Martins, will begin today. Workers will be repairing cracks and concrete damage under the bridge caused by the earthquake. The kerb and channel on the bridge will also be repaired. It is expected to take about three weeks. The bridge will be open throughout the works, but there will be no parking on the east side of Fifield Tce next to the bridge. The Beckford Rd bridge, St Martins, will also have repairs begin today, which will take about three weeks.

Celebrating the effort of women BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Women leaders across the Spreydon-Heathcote ward will unite to celebrate the work they do in the community. Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board deputy chairwoman Karolin Potter is organising an assembly for women

who lead organisations, residents’ associations and other community groups. “I said to the other two women on the board let’s get the women together. And I said to the blokes you boys can have one too.” She said there were a number

of women behind community organisations who did not get enough recognition for what they do. This was a chance for the women to meet, socialise and discuss how things run and share ideas. Men also did great things,

Karolin Potter


Fighting for community rights Karolin Potter campaigns for community rights as the deputy chairwoman of the SpreydonHeathcote Community Board. She speaks to Bridget Rutherford about being the first woman arrested for the 1981 Springbok Tour So how long have you been on the community board? Eight years, it’s really my thing. I’ve always been active in the community. I was a trade unionist, and particularly focused on women’s rights, racism and childcare and I worked at the Human Rights Commission. But then after you have kids you tend to become local. After that I became secretary and chairwoman of the Beckenham Neighbourhood Association and chairwoman of the Beckenham School PTA. I’ve been on several boards like the Christchurch Resettlement Services board, the board of union and community health and the board of tenants protection for 16 or 17 years. The community board is exactly where I like to be, I don’t like the big fame stuff, I like the community deciding for itself what to do. Why do you do it? You can’t deny that it’s self-

ish, because in everything you do you get back more than you give. But you meet the best people, you meet people devoted to their community, for reason other than personal ambition. And you have convictions from the Springbok Tour, can you tell me about that? Yes. I was the first woman arrested for protesting against the Springbok Tour. We were protesting on a bridge in Wellington with signs before the tour on May 1 and the cops arrested us for blocking the footpath, but then we got off. Then we blocked flights from coming in and out of the Wellington Airport, by running across the runway, so I got a conviction for that. We climbed seven bloody storeys in the National headquarters and threw their files out the window protesting against Muldoon’s decision to let the tour go ahead, so I got a conviction for that.

Clare Reilly’s work has been described as Neo-Romantic. Her paintings are imbued with a poetic stillness and calm. Born and educated in Wellington, she has lived and worked in Christchurch since 1976 and is now a fulltime artist. Her career spans more than three decades of painting and exhibiting throughout New Zealand, with many works going overseas. The Earthsong collection of paintings is an invitation to pause and take in a moment in nature, to sense the pulse Rise and Fall and rhythms of the Earth, and listen to the sounds that reflect the natural world. To experience a sense of joy. Calm and meditative, the paintings are a combination of stillness and dynamic movement. The bird motif is used in each work as a messenger to draw attention to the landscape and the rich and diverse native flora of our land. Here is the opportunity to step away from the digital screens that are increasingly dominating our lives. With the pressure to rush through each day, in this fast-paced century, it is good to remind ourselves to reconnect with all our senses to the wonderful natural world that surrounds us. The dramatic increase of information technology, continuous upgrades and built-in obsolescence are rapidly using up precious resources, only to be discarded a short while later. There is only one Earth, a finite eco-system, that needs to be nurtured, not neglected, so that all forms of life can continue to exist.

is her ‘thing’ Any protests recently? I’ve always said I’ll lie down in front of the bulldozer if they four lane Lincoln Rd. I did take part in the last TPPA march down Riccarton Rd, it was bloody wet and I’m getting older. I remember I marched against Vietnam in Auckland and Wellington. It was funny because my dad was acting commander of the Auckland Air Force Base at the time, and I was marching against it. So your dad was in the air force? Yes. I grew up in the air force. All my childhood was spent shifting from school to school. I went to schools all over New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Singapore. But my first two schools were actually Weedons and Hornby. Oh wow, so didn’t grow up in Christchurch? No, I’d consider the King Country to be my Tūrangawaewae [Marae]. I did an arts degree in Wellington then my first job was teaching in the far north without a teaching qualification. I taught in a school which was almost exclusively Maori. Down the road there was a white school which was about the same size

And your kids went to Beckenham School. How old are they now? I’ve got three kids. They are 33, 31 and 29. My eldest is a lawyer and she is a union organiser in Sydney, the second one is a teacher and the third is a researcher and lecturer at Manchester University doing a post doc in researching. And you have a mischievous puppy I hear. He’s nearly seven-monthsold, an australian terrier called Trevor. When he was peeing on the floor inside when I first got him, I didn’t know if I could cope. And when he charges through the house with a toilet brush in his mouth I just reach for the gin. So with all your protesting you probably aren’t too interested in the Rugby World Cup then? Oh yes, I’ve always loved rugby, Trevor Richards, who I spoke about before was a real fan of rugby, we just didn’t watch it during the Springbok Tour. So who is going to win? If I was going to be worried about anyone it would be Australia.

LIONS CLUB OF CHRISTCHURCH SOUTH The Lions Club of Christchurch South covers the southern suburbs and works to collect money for well-deserved charities as well as pledge money towards deserving community projects or individuals. Its membership has declined to about 21, and it is always looking for new members. The club meets every second and forth Thursday of the month at St Augustine’s Anglican Church Hall on Cracroft Tce. The first meeting of the month has a variety of guest speakers, and both meetings have a finger food dinner.

There are about 26 members, most over 60, but the club is always keen on more people joining. Members meet every Thursday at the Opawa Baptist Church Hall on Wilsons Rd

from 1.30-3pm. There is entertainment every week such as singers or bands and members often want to get up and sing and dance. Every six weeks or so the group goes out to lunch at a local restaurant or cafe, but at the weekly meetings the group enjoys a cuppa and biscuits. If you are interested in joining, phone Lyn Thompson on 981 2230. CHRISTCHURCH SCRABBLE CLUB The club is based in Sydenham and focused on competitive scrabble, but welcomes players of all ages and levels. It currently has about 50 members.

Speed skater sweeps NZ and Aussie championships your

LOCAL Achievers


Speed skater Amelia Sykes is seeing gold after winning two national championships in her age group. The Canterbury Alpine Ice Speed Skating Club member won the Australian National Short Track Championships’ girls midget section held in Melbourne over September 18-19. She qualified for the Australian competition after winning the juvenile girls section at the Indoor Speed Skating New Zealand National Championships held in Dunedin in July. The 11-year-old had been training twice a week at Opawa-based Alpine Ice in preparation for the competitions. Her father Julian Sykes said the two competitions varied slightly, with the New Zealand section being aged nine to 11, and the Australian being aged nine to12. He said Amelia ended up racing

boys in the Australian competition, some of whom were a year older than her, and finished third overall, winning the overall girls section. The tournament is done on a points system. Mr Sykes did not travel to Melbourne but watched her race live on television. “I was trying to do work and it proved a bit difficult.” Amelia has been speed skating for about three and a half years. She reaches a speed of about 30km/h and can skate 500m in just under a minute from a standing start. She was originally going to compete in Australia for the ex-

perience because she expected the competition to be fierce and she was coming back from injury. Two weeks before the national champs last year she crashed coming around a corner while skating and broke her ankle. She had been training five times a week to get back into form and managed to come out on top. If you know of a local achiever, email bridget.

Holiday fun for kids at Chipmunks


Charge your phone in bus shelter

Linwood residents are now able to charge their phones while they wait for their buses in the city’s first solar-powered shelter. The city council has installed the solar shelter at the bus stop near the corner of Gloucester St and Stanmore Rd. Christchurch has been trialling a number of solar tables in and around the city, but this is the first solar-powered shelter for bus users. Solar panels installed in the roof of the shelter power the lights and the charge points. It is the first publicly-accessible solar-powered shelter in New Zealand and means that even when there are widespread power cuts, people will be able to charge devices such as phones and tablets using a USB cable. Urban Design and Regeneration

MODERN: Pat Martin from Solar Bright with Katie Smith from the city council urban design and regeneration unit outside the solarpowered shelter near Linwood Village.

Unit manager Carolyn Ingles said the idea was an initiative from the team who had been instrumental in developing the Linwood Village Master Plan. “This solar-powered shelter ticks all the boxes and I am excited this innovative amenity is being

trialled in Linwood. This shelter tests a new idea – it provides seating, lighting and protection from the elements, all of which improve the bus waiting experience and safety levels, and on top of that the shelter uses renewable energy sources.” Hagley–Ferrymead Community Board chairwoman Sara Templeton said she was excited this project has come to fruition and pleased that the product has been made locally. “Working with an award-winning Christchurch company is good for the local economy.” Solar Bright, which specialises in solar power and LED lighting, recently won three awards, including the Supreme award, at the 2015 Champion Canterbury Business Awards

get themselves stuck in all sorts of ways including slipping down street grates or into drains. That’s where the Fire Service becomes involved as St Albans crew were in Regents Park Drive last Thursday where one duckling had disappeared down an underground pipe. Judicious use of fire hose and hydrant to fill the pipe caused the wee fella to float back out where he was

reunited with his family. We’ll see more I’m sure. A clothes dryer that caught fire in Phillipstown the same day is a reminder that these useful machines require a bit of everyday maintenance. The lint filter inside accumulates quickly and if not kept clear the result can be overheating or fire. The good habit of picking that lint filter clean every time you use the dryer is something we encourage

Allergies & Skin Care,

the Apothecary


pring is in the air and for many of us, it’s time to start thinking about that first BBQ of the season, getting into the garden or even heading to the beach. But for many others, the change of season can mean allergies and skin problems. After winter, our skin tends to be dryer, yet spring is the time of year when we really want to look our best for summer fashions. And seasonal allergies, such as to tree and grass pollens, can really spoil our enjoyment of this gorgeous season.

The team at the Apothecary at the Tannery appreciates all too well the discomfort, pain and embarrassment that such conditions carry with them. To help sufferers understand some of the potential underlying causes behind their conditions and what they can do to help themselves, they are running a one-off class explaining the relationship between skincare and allergies. It also covers ways to retake control of common skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, urticarial, acne, dry skin, cellulitis or folliculitis, and of seasonal allergies like hay fever. The course lasts one and a half hours and includes a half hour question and answer session, giving you the chance to find out more about your personal concerns. It is designed to help you learn how to take

better care of yourself, and understand what may be driving your own skin complaints and allergic rhinitis. Costing only $20 per person it runs on October 27th at 5.30 pm. The course will explain how allergies and skin problems can have similar underlying causes, such as immune system imbalances and low vitamin D levels at the end of the winter. Although you will learn about some of the excellent natural remedies available to help, you will also learn why your body reacts the way it does. There will be a particular focus on how to treat conditions with nutrition. If you would like more personalised treatment, Simone Reddington and her team of qualified herbalists and nutritionists are happy

The Apothecary at the Tannery to make an individual appointment with you. They will look at a range of herbal remedies individually selected to suit you, your lifestyle and your condition. All are all fully qualified medical herbalists and members of the New Zealand Association of Medical Herbalists (NZAMH). That means they understand the benefits of herbal remedies, using them as their first choice for a range of medical conditions. Herbs are our oldest medicines, many having

AWARD FOR SWIMMER Cashmere High School swimmer Kyra Forrest (above) has been named the Mako’s Emerging Swimmer of the Year at Swimming New Zealand’s annual meeting. This year the awards were given out to a talented swimmer from each of the four zones. Kyra’s nine podium finishes at New Zealand Age Group Championships certainly showed she was deserving of her award.

FOURTH PLACE AT FESTIVAL Christchurch South pupils Jack Lamont and Cory Dean competed in the 11th grade Canterbury Boys Football red team at the Jack McKnight Football Festival in Nelson last week. Their team came fourth after Canterbury grey, Otago blue and Canterbury white.

FOOTBALLERS FOR TOURNAMENT Christchurch South Intermediate pupils Luke Spencer and Dylan Bargh will compete at the Gavin Roberts South Island Football Tournament in 12th grade Canterbury boys teams this week.

Mixed results for rugby players Six players from the southern suburbs represented Canterbury Metro at the South Island Primary Rugby Tournament in Timaru last week. Beckenham School’s Matthew Ownsworth and Christchurch South Intermediate pupils Tim Blackwell and Henry Clatworthy played in the under48kg competition. St Martins School pupil Torian Barnes, Christchurch South’s John Tuipulotu and Catholic Cathedral College pupil Charles Smith played in the under-65kg team. The tournament featured just over 300 primary school players who made up teams from Canterbury Metro, Canterbury Country, Southland, Otago,

Nelson Bays, Hanan Shield and Marlborough. It was a round-robin format tournament which worked on a points-based table. The under-48kg team ended up coming second to Southland, who went through unbeaten. Otago came third, followed by Nelson Bays, Canterbury Country, Hanan Shield and Marlborough. The under-65kg team had stiff competition from Otago, who beat them 31-5 in the round-robin game and came out 10 points clear on top of the table. Canterbury Country came third, followed by Southland, Hanan Shield and Nelson Bays.

GOING FOR THE WIN: The New Zealand Secondary Schools Netball Championships is kicking off tomorrow. Cashmere High School’s senior A netball team is one of three Christchurch schools to be competing. They will come up against Wellington East Girls’ College, Westlake Girls’ High School and Waikato Diocesan in pool D. Cashmere qualified for the national tournament after coming runner up to St Margaret’s College in the South Island Secondary Schools tournament 27-26 last month. St Andrew’s College will also be at the tournament which runs from Tuesday until Friday in Ashburton.

s part of Risingholme’s 70th anniversary celebrations in 2014, the centre worked together with the Doris Lusk Estate and the Dunedin School of Art Polytechnic to provide a place for a ceramic practitioner to come and work with their students and tutors. The Doris Lusk Ceramics Residency has been created to encourage and sustain a vibrant ceramic community as well as provide an opportunity for ceramic artists to participate in art educational practices. Ceramic classes at Risingholme raised funds through very successful exhibitions of student work. Over the years, Risingholme has enjoyed a vast array of prominent community educators, including Doris Holland (nee Lusk). Ms Lusk tutored ceramics at Risingholme from the late 1940s up until the late ‘60s. She was a dominant figure in New Zealand Art and Arts Education during her lifetime and contributed to a vibrant New Zealand Arts dialogue. Her attributes include her appointment as the head of Ilam School of Fine Arts at Canterbury University, president of the Canterbury Potters Association, president of The CSA Gallery (CoCa) and she received the Governor-General Art Award posthumously. Zehavit Darlington is the inaugural recipient of the Doris Lusk Ceramics Residency in 2015 and will take up her residency in November this year. Zehavit

has a very diverse ceramic practice and currently is a ceramic teacher in primary schools in the Otago Region, the Potter’s Cottage, Otago Peninsula and to people with intellectual disabilities at the Mosgiel Ability Resource Centre. She is also a practicing studio artist, supplying design shops with functional vessels. She also exhibits on a regular basis.

The importance of good


blood pressure

lood 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 nervous system. Over a period of time, the blood pressure may keep increasing due to the deterioration of blood flow. A higher blood pressure is not ideal and it is considered a major risk factor for stroke, aneurysm, organ failure and heart failure. Even moderate elevation of blood pressure is considered a major reason for shorter life expectancy. If we can maintain our blood pressure in the normal range, our overall health will be improved. Systolic blood pressure, 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 blood pressure, the lower figure, is the pressure in the arteries between beats and ideally at rest this should be between 60 to 70. It has been found in around 90 per cent

of cases, high blood pressure is caused by an increase in the resistance to blood flow in the blood vessels. It is believed inflammation 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 and lifestyle and see the benefits in our blood pressure readings. Blood pressure monitors and further information on how to improve your overall health and blood pressure naturally is available from the natural health advisers at Marshall’s Health and Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton.

McKenzie Lifestyle Village


illa construction at McKenzie Lifestyle Village in Geraldine is now centred on stage 5 with our first residents in this stage moving in late November. Concurrently with this is the construction of our new McKenzie Leisure Centre which will cater for many lifestyle activities such as an indoor heated swimming pool and spa pool, gymnasium, art and craft area, library, lounge (with pool table, etc.), hairdressing room and other key amenities. Out on the north side, the bowling green (plus croquet) is being formed to be followed by Petanque, Mini-Golf and a children’s playground. The official opening of the Village and Leisure Centre is scheduled for Saturday 28 November with the next day being a Public Open Day between 1.00 and 4.00 pm. Visitors are most welcome to come and inspect the Village and Leisure Centre on the Sunday. There will be light refreshments and music in the Lounge and some villas will

be open for inspection. There are now 32 occupied villas with 49 residents. As the number of residents has increased, so has the social aspect of village living. The spacious and well-insulated villas are a mixture of stand-alone and duplex styles with four basic plans to choose from. They all have at least two bedrooms and internal access garaging. There is a village bus, men's workshop, allotments, and parking for caravans, boats and campervans on site. We will eventually build up to 120 villas, 10 apartments and 12 assisted-care apartments, the latter being attached to McKenzie HealthCare next door. McKenzie HealthCare is an aged care facility with rest home, hospital, palliative care and dementia services.

Improve prostate health



Duchenne Dental

The prostate is a small walnut-shaped male organ located beneath the urinary bladder and wrapped around the urethra or urinary tube.


t is of little significance for most men until the their late 40s, when for a large percentage of men it tends to enlarge and affect normal urination by restricting flow through the urethra. This condition is known as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. BPH reduces the ability of the bladder to evacuate completely, causing common symptoms like wanting to urinate more frequently (especially annoying at night as it affects sleep quality), difficulty starting urination, dribbling after urination and pain with urination. The word benign in BPH is very significant as it means an enlargement of the prostate that isn’t cancer. However, BPH should always be diagnosed by a MD as there is always the chance of prostate cancer. Once diagnosed as BPH, it can often be managed quite well with herbal and nutritional remedies and without the side effects of prescription drugs used for this condition. Saw palmetto is a herb that has been used for centuries for BPH of the prostate. A review of 18 double-blinded studies found an average improvement of 72 per cent of BPH symptoms in saw palmetto users. Researchers have found saw palmetto to inhibit the formation of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and DHT is the main reason for the prostate to enlarge and to

be a risk factor for prostate cancer and hair loss. Phellodendron amurense inner bark is another herb that has been found to protect against BPH and recent research has shown it to be protective against prostate tumor development in laboratory studies. Lycopene is a potent antioxidant with numerous health benefits, including cancer and BPH protective benefits. Fatty acids from the seeds of pumpkin, evening primrose and flax have been shown to be supportive of prostate and general good health. Further information is available from our natural health advisers and naturopath at Marshall’s Health and Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton. Phone 388 5757.

Next steps for settling ILV land damage

Meet the Researchers – Dr John Townend

EQC expects to begin informing homeowners from the end of October whether their property has the type of land damage known as Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV). This is the first time in the world this type of land damage has been recognised as insured damage. The EQC Head of Canterbury Land, Keith Land, says there will be a two-stage approach to communicating what the EQC’s ILV settlement decision is for a customer’s property. This reflects feedback received from customers, who wanted to hear from EQC as soon as relevant information about their properties became available. “Customers will first find out whether their property qualifies for a settlement for ILV land damage as the qualification assessments for all potential properties are close to being finished. We expect this stage will be completed by early 2016. “When a settlement decision has been made for properties that qualify, customers will then receive a full settlement pack, with detailed information on the amount of payment and what it is based on,” Mr Land says. EQC expects to be distributing the full settlement packs for ILV land damage and for any other outstanding land damage throughout 2016. The most difficult group of settlements to work through for EQC will be the properties that have suffered both ILV and Increased Flooding Vulnerability (IFV). “We recognise that our customers have been waiting for a long time for ILV settlements to begin. Developing our settlement approach for ILV land damage is complex work and has taken time. We want to make sure we get it right and that homeowners have confidence

In this series, we talk to EQC-funded researchers about their important work. Ensuring that GeoNet data are used as much as possible for research into the physics of earthquakes is a central part of Associate Professor John Townend’s job. To many people, GeoNet is a webpage or an app on a phone – alerting the public to earthquake activity with near-real-time alerts about Dr John Townend earthquake locations, depths and magnitudes. Dr Townend’s research uses the data that underpin those alerts to better understand how earthquakes behave, looking at what occurs deep underground when a fault starts to slip. Dr Townend is an Associate Professor and EQC Fellow in Seismic Studies at Victoria University of Wellington, conducting research into earthquake seismology, tectonics, and other areas of geoscience. He and his students work in particular on earthquake mechanics and fault zone structure and hydrogeology. “GeoNet is a great component of New Zealand’s hazard analysis and preparation, but it only really contributes to improving our earthquake resilience if we do as much good science as possible with the data,” Dr Townend says. While Dr Townend is sceptical we will ever be able to predict reliably when or where an earthquake will strike, we can forecast what is likely to occur in general terms so that people can better prepare for the next event. “There’s a real opportunity to make important progress in earthquake physics by studying earthquake sequences, such as in Canterbury, and the individual earthquakes themselves,” Dr Townend says. Dr Townend said he believes cities can be better prepared from earthquakes, “The Christchurch earthquake was so devastating not because it was particularly big but because of its location close to the city and because it had several seismological characteristics and local geological factors that really exacerbated the effects of shaking.” Much of Dr Townend’s current work focuses on the central Alpine Fault, which runs down the spine of the South Island. He is co-leader of the Deep Fault Drilling Project, an ambitious international research project focussed on determining temperatures, pressures, and stresses in the heart of the Alpine Fault late in its typical cycle of strain accumulation before the next big earthquake. He is also working on projects in the Taupo Volcanic Zone, Iceland, and Canterbury. “GeoNet also enabled us to undertake the first New Zealand studies of slow slip and seismic tremor, newly recognised modes of earthquake-like behaviour that occur in subduction zones. Determining the conditions that exist inside large fault zones is very important in terms of thinking about short-term and long-term seismic hazard.” Dr Townend says the Alpine Fault project should not only give a better understanding of the biggest earthquake hazard in the South Island, but also help international scientists understand the mechanics of large faults generally. “The earthquakes we’re really interested in are the ones that don’t happen very often. That means that we need to balance a statistical approach to seismic hazard calculations with physics-based understanding of what processes control the timing, location, and size of an earthquake, and the interactions between one earthquake and another. “GeoNet has become a vital component of New Zealand’s scientific infrastructure. It enables the public to keep up to date with what’s happening but, from my perspective, what’s even more important is that the quality and quantity of data GeoNet collects from all over the country provide exceptional opportunities for scientists to learn about how the earth works. “EQC has a very broad-minded interpretation of how science can benefit society and that’s been fantastic for the New Zealand research community and for New Zealand society as a whole.” The Earthquake Commission supports research about natural disaster damage and ways to reduce its impact. As part of its research programme, EQC funds teaching positions at the universities of Canterbury (natural hazards and engineering), Victoria (seismic studies and economics of disasters), Massey (social science and planning) and Auckland (volcanic risk and engineering).

all properties have been assessed consistently and fairly,” says Mr Land. Critical to the timing of the first qualification packs being sent to customers is the finalisation of the ILV policy which will outline the way that EQC approaches the assessment of ILV land damage and how it settles claims. Mr Land says EQC is working hard to ensure homeowners get quality information to help them understand EQC’s qualification decision. This was a key learning from the settlements of IFV properties that EQC started early this year. EQC will be inviting affected homeowners

to a series of community meetings across the city towards the end of the year and early next year. Mr Land says the meetings will give homeowners the opportunity to hear directly from EQC and its engineering advisors Tonkin + Taylor. “We want to make sure people get a good understanding of what‘s been involved in making the qualification decision for their property and what to expect next”, says Mr Land. For more information on ILV land damage visit the EQC website at

SETTLEMENT OF ILV LAND DAMAGE EQC will not be repairing any ILV land damage but will settle the damage by cash payment. This is consistent with how EQC has settled claims for other types of land damage caused by the Canterbury earthquakes. EQC expects the cash settlement for ILV land damage to be based on repair cost and/or market reduction in the value of a property, known as Diminution of Value (DOV). Once the ILV policy is finalised more information will be available on how EQC will determine which settlement option will be used for what property.

Thinking about buying or selling a property? Before buying or selling a house, the people involved often want to see EQC documents related to the property in regards assessment for earthquake damage, and the status of repairs. To avoid the document request causing delays in the sale and purchase of a property, vendors are advised to obtain EQC documents before putting their homes on the market. The documents are easily requested by emailing EQC at or

phoning us on 0800 326 243 between 7am to 9pm, Monday to Friday, or 8am to 6pm on Saturday. This makes it easier, because EQC is unable to discuss claim information with a potential purchaser without the claimant’s (usually the vendor) express consent. A purchaser wanting claim information, after they have bought a property, needs to have obtained a Deed of Assignment (or similar document).

ShakeOut On the 15th of October at 9:15am, New Zealand will participate in the international earthquake drill, ShakeOut. Over one million New Zealanders have already registered, and nearly 23 million people world-wide. In 2012, New Zealand had the largest participation rate per capita with 1.3 million registrations; but this year Civil Defence and its partners (EQC included) are aiming higher – with a target of over 1.5 million participants. ShakeOut is a timely opportunity for Kiwis from all walks of life to practice the correct action to take during an earthquake, which is ‘Drop, Cover and Hold’. It is also an opportunity to think about how prepared you, your workplace and household would be in the event of an earthquake and if emergency plans and supplies are up-to-date. ShakeOut registration is open to individuals, households, business and organisations – make sure you register today.

"We're really happy to welcome Chef Kim Williams to our team and looking forward to some great food coming from our kitchen," said Ajay Rathod, bar manager. Hailing from Mosgiel, Kim has been involved in the hospitality industry all her life. "I like food and I like people, so it was inevitable that I would become a chef," said Kim. Her food career to date includes the Dunedin Casino, Mt Cook Hermitage, Scenic Circle hotels, and most recently the Historic Hurunui Hotel where regulars came as far as Christchurch to sample her gourmet pizzas and special desserts. "I'm very excited to be running the Mackenzies Bistro. I want to offer customers something they wouldn't usually make for themselves at home. I love the challenge involved in planning menus and want to try to please everyone. As well as the Bistro, I will be available to cater functions and events at the hotel and come up with menu options to suit the occasion and budget." Mackenzies Bistro is currently open Thursday to Sunday from 4pm. The mains menu offers excellent value, Steak Ribeye $19.50; Fish of the Day $18.50; Chicken & Bacon Stack $19.50; Warm Chicken Salad $13.50;
