The closure of Phillipstown School was a turbulent time for those living in the community, and now city council ward boundary changes could see Phillipstown split into two different wards. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

More turmoil looms BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Phillipstown could be facing further turmoil nearly a year after its school shut down if city council ward changes go ahead. The city council’s representation review proposes to split the Phillipstown community in two, with one side being in the Linwood ward, and the other in Woolston. If the changes go ahead, Phillipstown would be split at Tuam St, and would be represented by two different community boards. The community spent about two years battling against the Ministry of Education which wanted Phillipstown School to close after the February 2011 earthquake. After street protests and a legal battle,

INSIDE:

Ward changes destructive for ‘tight-knit’ community

the decision was made to permanently close the school. It merged with nearby Woolston School to form Te Waka Unua School at the start of this year. For several submitters to the plan the pain of loosing the school, and the proposal to split the suburb was too much. Phillipstown resident Jim Lewis said in his submission Phillipstown was a “close, tight-knit community”. “In breaking up the suburb across two wards, this is effectively cementing a division in an already lower decile area that has been affected by earthquakes.”

Former Phillipstown School principal Tony Simpson (left) told the Southern View Phillipstown had a very strong identity but had suffered with the closure of the school. He said further fragmentation would be destructive to the “tightknit” community. “Following the lines of what has happened at Phillipstown [School], which is the destruction of the community as it was, and was for many, many years, I’d be very, very concerned about further fragmentation.” He said there was intensification in the area in terms of housing, and asked where the evidence was to prove this

was a good move. “What it will do is cause problems for our community in that you have taken away the services like the school and the representation. You’re just not meeting the needs of that particular community.” “We had a community that had a strong identity, pride, history, services. What’s going on here?” Some submitters suggested Phillipstown should remain intact, and part of the Woolston ward, because that is where the school is now based. Those wanting to be heard made their submissions before a hearings panel on Tuesday and Wednesday last week. Submission hearings on the representation review continue this week.

School speed zone likely for Rose St BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

A busy Cashmere street which has a high school, retirement village and a pre-school could be in line for a lower speed limit at peak times. The city council is looking at installing a 40km/h school speed zone and signage on part of Rose St and Beechworth Ave next to Cashmere High School. Every year the city council has a budget to install school speed zones, and Cashmere is at the top of the priority list. The speed limit would be in place at peak times in the morning and afternoon. Electronic signs will be put at the start of the zone on Rose St, and regular signs will be at the end of the zone on Rose St and on Beechworth Ave. The speed of vehicles travelling along Rose St has been a concern for the Lower Cashmere Residents’ Association. Secretary Sue Bye said the association was “very pleased” the school speed zone was proposed. “There’s also a pre-school and you’ve got the elderly people as well.” She said as you drive along

PRINCIPAL APPOINTED

Linwood College has appointed its new principal to start next year. Current Hornby High School principal Richard Edmundson will step into the role in term one. A statutory manager stepped in to the school in September last year to resolve issues between staff and management. Former Lincoln High School principal Linda Tame began as acting principal in April and will remain there until the end of the year. Mr Edmundson was an English teacher at Linwood from 1994-98, and from 1999-2001 he was head of the English department at Linwood before moving on to Aranui High School.

WOMAN HURT IN CRASH

A woman in her 40s was taken to hospital with moderate injuries after a bus and a car collided in Cashmere last week. St John was called to the intersection of Centaurus Rd and Bowenvale Ave at 9.55am on Wednesday. The woman was taken to Christchurch Hospital. SPEED DROP: The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board will be asked to approve a school speed zone on Rose St and Beechworth Ave in February. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Rose St it was very unclear there was a school. The zone would operate on school days for 35min in the morning, and 20min in the afternoon, beginning 5min before the end of school. It could also operate for 10min at any other time when children cross the road or get in

and out of vehicles. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board will be asked to approve the plans in February. Principal Mark Wilson said Rose St could become congested for short periods at peak times and the speed zone was very appropriate.

He said the school and the board welcomed the plan. “It’s a good proactive measure before there is an issue or an unfortunate incident.” A lot of people could drive down Rose St and not know they were coming up to a school because it was hidden, he said.

GATEWAY SEMINAR

A seminar will be held this month with city council staff and the Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board to discuss project ideas for a Sydenham gateway feature. The community board would like to see Carlyle Park, on the corner of Carlyle and Colombo Sts, turned into some sort of community garden to act as a gateway. A date for the seminar is yet to be decided.

The best thing about being a councillor . . . Tim Scandrett SpreydonHeathcote city councillor

“What is the best thing about being a city councillor?” I am often asked. Without a doubt it is being involved first-hand in the sense of community which is so apparent in Christchurch. Whether it be the community effort for the Barrington playground rebuild, new picnic tables in Somerfield Park, the Ernle Clark Reserve volunteers or the Sydenham community’s fight to prevent a recycling plant to operate … it is all communities working together for a common goal. I am currently really enjoying working with the Huntsbury community. The earthquake caused the need to install new reservoirs. With good planning this has provided an opportunity to develop an additional green space in Huntsbury. The community’s vision is for a large open space where you can kick a ball or throw a frisbee. The whole area could be designed to also be a multi-purpose accessible space for picnics, neighbourhood

Phillipstown could be split in two if the city council representation review proposals go ahead.

A number of submissions made on the review have raised concerns that other suburbs will also be split.

SOAP BOX gatherings and even the screening of outdoor movies. Community input will continue to be invaluable in planning this area to meet community needs. I am working hard ensure this all happens. I feel really honoured to be able to work with communities to help them achieve their goals. Christchurch has faced huge challenges with many more to come. I believe we can be so proud that a very positive outcome of our challenges has been the growth of our sense of community. This is what will shape Christchurch into the vibrant city we all want it to become. If you or your community need any help, please feel free to phone me on 027 693 5155.

They were called to the Colombo St home at about noon. Fire communications shift manager Andrew Norris said the smell was coming from a fluorescent tube in one of the lights overheating and they did not need to do anything further. Addington and Sockburn crews were also called to Lyttelton St, Spreydon, to a rubbish fire in the backyard of a residential property at about 4.30pm. Firefighters checked the fire, but it was under control.

COMMUNITY SPACE: The original plans were drawn up in 2013, but nothing has come of them.

Residents push for progess on community space project BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Huntsbury residents frustrated that plans for a community space have failed to get traction are lobbying the city council to get the project moving again. There were originally plans, in 2013, to turn a city council owned grassed space in between the two Huntsbury reservoirs, on Huntsbury Ave, into some sort of community area. They included a rock climbing wall, a paved seating area, a half basketball court and a possible outdoor amphitheatre. But since then, nothing had happened and there is no money set aside in the city council’s long-term plan for development of the site. City councillor Tim Scandrett said he was working to try and find out what had happened with the plans. He said flat land on the hill

should be utilised. “It’s just been sitting there dormant.” The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board has also asked the city council for an update on what had happened to the plans. Large gates have been put up to prevent people from entering the area. Huntsbury Community Centre president David Drayton said residents were frustrated nothing had come of the plans. The original reservoir, which holds some of the city’s drinking water, sustained earthquake damage and it was redesigned into two smaller reservoirs. The works were carried out by Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team, and the community space plans were drawn up as part of the repair work. Mr Drayton said the 100th anniversary of the naming of Hunts-

bury would be happening in 2020, and the community wanted to have the space ready for the celebrations. He said residents wanted to know what was happening, and get the ball rolling. A flat area on the hill was hard to come by, and this site was perfect for a community space, he said. “Not many sections on the hill have a flat area for kids to play on,” he said. “It would be a good area to have as a venue, it’s private and off the road. You could screen movies on the wall of one of the tanks there. There’s numerous things that could be done.” Mr Drayton said a number of residents had asked him what was happening with the plans, and whether they were going ahead. City council staff will meet with the board to discuss the options for the site.

LOCAL Achievers

OLDEST AND YOUNGEST: Lorna Laing, who started at Beckenham School in 1929 and Lilian Shelku, 5, cut the cake at the centenary.

If you know of a local achiever, email bridget.rutherford@ starmedia.kiwi GOOD JOB: Linwood College student Navneet Narayan won a national award for an outfit he created as part of the Brother Design Awards.

Budding designer’s outfit impresses Linwood College student Navneet Narayan has been recognised as a promising young designer. The year 12 student won the people’s choice award in the Brother Design Awards recently. The awards are a national competition for school students from year 9-13 where they make outfits and garments which are then paraded on Choice TV. Those viewing the parade voted on their favourites, and Navneet’s outfit was a winner with the crowd. He received a certificate and

plaque to recognise his success. His winning outfit had a fabric bodice and over-top, a wooden A-line skirt and was topped off with polystyrene shoes. Navneet said the outfit was inspired by what he had seen in a magazine, while the polystyrene shoes were inspired by Lady Gaga. He was stoked to win the people’s choice award. The whole outfit took about eight weeks to make in his textile class, he said. He hopes to continue making clothing when he leaves school.

Beckenham School’s youngest pupil and its oldest visitor came together to cut the centenary cake to celebrate 100 years. More than 400 past and present pupils turned out to its centenary over Labour Weekend. Lilian Shelku, 5, who had been at the school for five days, and Lorna Laing, who enrolled at the school in 1929, cut the cake together.

Joanna FieLDes

I was born in Hampton Court and came to New Zealand in 1973 in my early twenties, I lived in Golden Bay and soon became involved in the art and craft world. I was involved with a few shops and galleries around the country. I sold leatherwear, bags, belts and sandals. I eventually ended up in Canterbury.

Joanna Fieldes is a selftaught artist with a uniquely surreal vision of her country and culture, unencumbered by conventional modes of Hide & Seek representation. Successfully exhibiting in solo, joint and group shows in public and private galleries around New Zealand since her first solo show in Auckland in 2004, Joanna has developed a distinctively resonant style of her own. “In this selection of oil paintings I have combined New Zealand landscapes with flora, fauna and still life objects in ways that suggest alternative subtexts to the ubiquitous stories of our colonial past. These works explore, from my Pakeha perspective, the colonization of New Zealand. Central to my theme is the lasting impact that European explorers, early colonial settlers and those that followed have had on the indigenous environment and inhabitants of this corner of the South Pacific.

The ‘Artist Quarter’ was my main outlet where I took orders for leather foot wear and also where I first met Angela and Stuart of the Little River Gallery. I am now into completely different things. I love working with copper which is in some ways similar to leather. I still make patterns and copper is quite malleable, as is leather. Our Lives are a constant rush to be somewhere or meet some important deadline. Allow time to follow a path that leads not to great wealth but to Aborial Illumination creative fulfilment.

The largest group of expupils were at the school from 1940-55 with 100 turning up, she said. Ms Hastings said the event ran very smoothly and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Cashmere student Parliament-bound A Cashmere High School student has been selected as Port Hills National MP Nuk Korako’s youth MP. Te Puawai Wilson-Leahy will be his representative at Youth Parliament next year. As well as representing her community at Youth Parliament in July, Te Puawai will hold the title of youth MP from January 25 to July 25, 2016. During this time, she will actively engage with her community to gain an understanding of the ideas and concerns of youth in the Port Hills. “All of the applicants would have made excellent youth MPs, but Ms Wilson-Leahy was particularly strong in her passion to represent young people and her ability to articulate her ideas – important qualities in any Member of Parliament,” Mr Korako said. There will be 121 youth MPs, one selected by each Member of Parliament, who will go to Parliament on July 19 and 20 2016, where they will learn about the Government decisionmaking process and share the views of New Zealand youth with the country’s decision makers. They will have the opportunity

to step into the shoes of an MP for two days while they debate legislation, sit on select committees and ask oral questions of Ministers. The other students who applied to be youth MPs will also play an active role in seeking the views of their community. These young people are Amy Chuang,

Rosalie Wilkinson and Nola Smart. “All of these young women showed a great deal of passion, were able to articulate their ideas well, and were eager to represent their communities. They made my decision difficult, but I could only select one to hold the title of youth MP and attend Youth

Parliament in Wellington,” Mr Korako said. Youth Parliament 2016 is also an opportunity for all young people to have their voice heard in Parliament. All young people can share their views on the Youth Parliament select committee topics.

Lake quality under study CAPTIVATED: Thorrington School pupils had a visit from the budding ballerinas from Canterbury Ballet on Thursday. The ballerinas are junior and senior full-time students and are visiting primary and intermediate schools around the city to show off the art of dance. The aim of the tour is to make dance more accessible to young people.

A group of Linwood College year 10 students are taking part in a programme focused on cleaning up Lake Ellesmere. The programme, He Puna Pūtaiao, is a Canterbury University initiative which is running this term. The students will help carry out quantitative and qualitative assessments of the water quality and wildlife in the lake itself or in its tributaries. They will present their final research at a seminar at the university with staff, whānau, and representatives from the participating groups. Over the school term the students will work with staff, science mentors from the universi-

ty and kaumātua from the local rūnanga over six weeks, one day per week. Lake Ellesmere, or Te Waihora, has immense significance, not only as a wetland of importance but also as a treasure with high cultural significance to mana whenua. However, the quality of the water itself and the range and quantity of wildlife in and on Te Waihora give cause for concern. It is the subject of several different research projects and intervention programmes. Other students from Cashmere High School, Lincoln High School and Burnside High KEEN TO LEARN: Linwood College students Kahn Mercier, OShea NewSchool are also taking part in the ton, Luke Russell, Taylor Fenton, Gypsy Owen, Nakita Henry, Lily Brown, Dayton Rapana-Pham and Hine-Moana Foster. programme.

WELL DONE: The Kip McGrath Barrington star of the month for October is Emma Morley. She was presented with the award for the progress she has been making in English. In particular, her spelling has greatly improved as she is able to recognise and use different sound combinations more effectively. Kip McGrath staff said she always works so hard and focuses 100 per cent on the task at hand.

DANCERS: Jodie and Lucia Xu took part in their ballet and jazz medal testing recently. Lucia received two firsts, two seconds, and three thirds in her championship ballet. Jody received one first, one second, and a highly commended in her jazz. Eva Stark, who is not pictured received 90 out of 100 in her solo ballet dance, achieving a gold medal.

TENNIS STARS: Alasdair and Duncan McCall competed at the Mid Canterbury Ashburton Tennis Tournament over Labour Weekend. Alasdair won a gold medal in the under-9 competition, and Duncan got a silver medal in the under-11 competition.

WELL DONE: Zachary and Jemesa Landers competed at the taekwon do Nationals in Wellington recently. Zachary won two gold medals and one silver. Jemesa got a silver award in sparring and was selected to join the South Island team, where five fighters competed against North Island fighters in one minute rounds. The South Island team went on to win. TALENT: Hillview Christian School pupils Fia Palamo and Mia Makaafi have been spotted as talented Canterbury netballers. They have been selected to join the Canterbury Advanced Training Squad.

GroutPro - Tile & Grout Restoration the water can also produce a build-up on the tiles and this requires regular cleaning to keep the shower looking 100%. Groutpro recommend epoxy grouting in both new and older shower bases, to help minimize the movement of moisture through the grout, resulting in a longer lasting end product. Where tiles are porous and have been sealed, the coating on tiles needs to be stripped and replaced approximately every ten years.

“The tiles and grout looked great when we moved in, but now, we just can’t keep the grout clean.”

This sentiment is all too familiar to Groutpro specialists Steven Austin and Brett Muir. But as experts, they can make a huge difference. As Steven says, they “keep the new looking new.” With 89 grout sealing colours to choose from, Groutpro can transform your tiles as well as provide basic maintenance. Another common problem is a leftover grout smear across new tiles or simply ‘ground in’ dirt. The Groutpro team can complete an acid wash to resolve this issue then apply a sealer to the groutlines to minimise the ‘stainability’ of the grout. As grout is highly porous, it quickly absorbs dirt - the solution is to seal the grout as soon as possible to

make ongoing cleaning more effective. In new houses, the grout is ideally sealed just before the move-in date. Looking at older homes, many showers tiled before 2000 don’t have waterproofing behind the tiles. Although it is now mandatory, where there is no waterproofing, one small hole in the grout or silicon can result in water seeping through the gib and into wooden framing, resulting in gradual deterioration. Showers should be regularly maintained through sealing the grout, spot regrouting or replacement of the silicon every 3-5 years. The minerals in

Sometimes older tiles are hard to acquire. To help resolve this issue, Steven and Brett have a collection of retro terracotta tiles. They have successfully matched these in situations where there were simply no alternative options. This has sometimes saved the cost of a total retiling refit. If you do have an older cracked terracotta tile, give Steve or Brett a call. Other cracked tiles can also be replaced, whether cracked through a dropped object or by the movement of a new house ‘settling’ after it has been built.

Linwood College achieved second place in the Waitaha Secondary Schools Regional Kapa Haka Competition held this month, reserving them a space in the Nationals which will be held next year in Hawkes Bay. This is Linwood College’s first time to achieve this prestigious placing. As a combination of schools were the first place winners, through achieving second place in the competition, Linwood College was the top school to stand alone. The judges made particular note of Linwood College students’ great heart and presence throughout their performance.

On Top of the World The Year 12 Outdoor & Sustainability Education class experienced a day tramp on Mount Grey where snow levels on the foothills made conditions more challenging under foot than expected. However, on the plus side, this beautifully transformed the landscape. Learning techniques to survive in snowy conditions was the intention of the snow trip onto the Craigieburn Range. The students slept overnight in snow shelters which they very capably constructed. No one was eager for a second night in these but students were pleased to have had the experience and gained some well-earned NCEA credits in the process. The igloo built by the boys .

CPIT Trades’ Students Give Linwood College a Make-Over During the recent term break, current and past CPIT Trades’ students upgraded many facilities across the Linwood College site. This included painting our Gymnasium Block (inside and out), our Technology Block as well as outdoor seating areas. These students are participants in the He Toki ki te Rika course offered at the CPIT Sullivan Avenue Campus which offers training scholarships to students of Mãori and Pasifika descent. We are very grateful to CPIT and to Rev. Fitifiti from the Sullivan Avenue Campus for providing resources and coordinating this project.

Robotics Success at the recent Sports’ Awards Since starting Robotics at Linwood College seven years ago Mrs Atkins has seen many teams succeed and this year was no different. She was pleased to be able to present two teams with their awards during the recent Sports Awards evening. The senior team with George Armstrong and Cole Barrie won the Vex Robotics Regionals this year against tough competition from other Christchurch Schools. George was awarded the ‘Most Valuable Player’ and Cole was presented with an iPhone 6 for his ‘Contribution to Junior and Senior Robotics’. The junior team of Toby Bell-Ramsay, Seth Owen and Harley Smith came third at this year’s RoboCup held in Christchurch. The senior teams will compete in the Vex Nationals to be held in March in Auckland.

2015 Brother Design Star People’s Choice Award Linwood College’s Fabric Technology student Navneet Narayan (Year 12) entered the 2015 Brother Design Stars Competition. This is a national fashion competition offered to secondary school students and aims to encourage emerging designers. Navneet won the Peoples’ Choice Award having designed and constructed a five-piece garment. Earlier this year, Navneet won a sewing machine for his entry in a previous competition.

Opawa’s Jack Leslie has taken out a top award in the Zonta Sports Awards. He jointly won the award for the most outstanding individual achievement by a young sportsman specialising in one sport for luge. The Christchurch Boys’ High School student shared the award with Middleton Grange School’s Sam Timmins for his acheivements in basketball. Leslie represented New Zealand at the natural track luge World Cup of the 2014/15 season in Laas, Italy in February where he came 12th. The annual Zonta Sports

Awards, initiated by the Zonta Club of Christchurch South in 1990, celebrate the sporting achievements of talented young Cantabrians. The winners were announced at a special ceremony on Thursday at the Hornby Working Men’s Club. Hillmorton High School student Celyn Edwards was highly commended in the award for the most outstanding achievement by a young sportsman with a disability for swimming. In May, Edwards won the overall swimming male and jointly won the overall athlete

at the Halberg Junior Disability Games in Cambridge. A number of other young athletes from the southern suburbs were finalists in the awards. Hillmorton High student Papa Mutu was a finalist in the best all round young sportsman who has achieved in more than one sporting code for his achievements in rugby league and softball. Christchurch Girls’ High School student Laken Wairau, of Linwood, was a finalist in two categories for basketball. She was in the running for the most outstanding individual achievement by a young sports-

woman specialising in one sport, and the award for contribution to sports administration by a young woman in a position of umpire, referee, coach or tutor. Cashmere High School student Maggie Takami was a finalist in the most outstanding individual achievement by a young sportswoman specialising in one sport for rhythmic gymnastics. Cashmere student Reece Traub was a finalist for the same award in the sportsman section for judo. Cashmere’s girl’s futsal team was a finalist for the most outstanding girls team, while the boys cross-country team was up for the boys section.

aper Tree Tower Junction has gained a reputation for offering the greatest value on books, greeting cards and art supplies. For several year the Tower Junction Paper Tree has sourced its books from all parts of the globe. This enables it to offer a huge variety at the lowest possible prices. Paper Tree is the only independent retailer currently offering this format. This is a real point of difference, resulting in Paper Tree becoming Canterbury’s number one discount offer, greeting cards and art supplies.

This popularity has seen the introduction of two exciting new stores. One is located at Northwood Supa Centre in Belfast, the other is situated at the New World shopping complex at St Martins. Paper Tree and New Zealand Post have worked closely in establishing a unique offer. The clientele at both New Zealand Post and Paper Tree complement each other perfectly. All three sites will offer New Zealand Post | Kiwi Bank transactional services, seven days a week, beginning 1st November.

Northwood New Zealand Post and Paper Tree fit “hand in glove” as a premier retail offer. Both put a large emphasis on service, quality of product, and price.

Flame files

Do you have a home escape plan? THE FLAME FILES BY MARK THOMAS – FIRE RISK MANAGEMENT OFFICER

It’s been quite a quiet week so it’s time for a little lecture. We have spent the last 25 years extolling the virtues of smoke alarms. We still do. And we’ll never know for sure the numbers of times a working smoke alarm has saved a life. We do know that statistics tell us we have fewer fire deaths now than then and we like to think smoke alarms are a significant part of that. But smoke alarms only are just half of the story. Sleeping with bedroom doors closed is strongly recommended. I know of two incidents where young children have died where I am absolutely certain they would have survived the incident by having the bedroom door shut. On hearing a smoke alarm somewhere in the house and touching the closed door you

will know if it is dangerously hot on the other side. If the door is cool, kneeling or bending and cracking the door will ensure if there is smoke, if so it is likely to be above your head. If the way is clear you go and investigate. It might be no more than toast cooking. A second way out, via the window needs to be planned

for. Once out you should let everyone in the house know there is danger by shouting and banging. Having a meeting place means all occupants will be aware each other is safe. And phoning 111 from that safe place or the neighbour’s finishes it all. It’s called a home escape plan. Have one!

Knowing Your Rights

Problems getting goods delivered?

Thought you’ve got a bargain online and then it’s never arrived or taken forever? Sadly, this is a familiar scenario for us. Recently Lisa contacted us after the tickets she ordered for a jazz concert didn’t arrive until after the performance. Unfortunately, these sorts of issues have often been very difficult to resolve, with the seller blaming the courier and the courier company blaming the seller with the poor consumer stuck in the middle. The courier company has obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act to provide their service with reasonable care and skill, which should include timely delivery of goods. In this example (as in many other cases) the courier company claimed that the delay in the delivery of Lisa’s tickets was outside of their control, leaving Lisa with few options apart from taking them to the Disputes Tribunal. The good news is that this is that from the June 17, 2014, changes to the Consumer Guarantees Act came into place which means that consumers are not left

stuck in the middle between the supplier and the courier company. One of the key changes is a new guarantee of delivery, which means that when a supplier is responsible for arranging the delivery of goods then they must ensure that the goods reach the consumer in the agreed time period (or a reasonable time if no time period was agreed). As with all the protections provided by the Consumer Guarantees Act, this guarantee only applies to goods bought for personal use, from a trader based in New Zealand (so not for overseas purchases or private sales). The upshot of all of this is that if Lisa had this problem after the June 17, 2014, then she could have gone directly to the seller of the ticket (a ticket company), who would have had to sort out the problem and refund Lisa’s ticket (and potentially any other costs she incurred due to the late delivery). To talk to one of our team about a consumer issue or to inquire about Volunteering for Citizens Advice Bureau phone 0800 367 222.

EQC UPDATE

KEEPING YOU INFORMED | OCTOBER 2015 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS How does a property qualify as having ILV land damage? To qualify for ILV land damage, a property must meet engineering criteria which confirms the insured land does not only have material vulnerability to liquefaction damage after the Canterbury earthquakes but the vulnerability has also materially increased as a result of ground surface subsidence of the land caused by the Canterbury earthquakes. In addition, the increase in liquefaction vulnerability must have caused a reduction in the market value of the property.

Customers get certainty on ILV land damage Most of the 8,500 green zone customers who last year received a letter from EQC that their property potentially has Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) land damage will be contacted in the next two months to confirm whether or not this is the case. “The first qualification packs have gone out this week and we expect to give certainty to all affected customers by early next year at the latest”, EQC Head of Canterbury Land, Keith Land says. Settling claims for ILV land damage is a world first and has involved a significant amount of geotechnical research and engineering assessments by EQC’s engineers Tonkin and Taylor. “We acknowledge it’s taken time to get to this stage and we would like to thank our customers for their patience. We’re confident all the work that has been done to date has contributed to a robust assessment process which should give homeowners confidence that all properties have been assessed fairly and consistently,” Mr Land says. The engineering assessment methodology, which was developed by Tonkin and Taylor, was peer reviewed by an independent expert review panel, comprising world-leading liquefaction researchers. EQC will use a two-stage approach to advise customers what EQC’s ILV settlement decision is for their property. This reflects feedback received from customers who said they want to hear from EQC as soon as relevant information about their properties becomes available. “The next stage of the process will be to send those customers whose properties do qualify a settlement pack, with detailed information on the

basis of the settlement and payment amount. The settlement packs will be sent out throughout 2016,” Mr Land says. EQC will cash settle ILV land damage and not manage the repair of ILV land, which is in line with how EQC has settled claims for other types of land damage caused by the Canterbury earthquakes. Cash settlements for ILV land damage will be based on one of two approaches: cost of repair or the reduction in market value of the property due to ILV land damage, also called Diminution of Value (DOV). “How exactly it’s going to look in terms of the settlement approaches and the amount for each of the qualifying properties is something we are working through now,” Mr Land says. Later this year and early next year EQC is holding a number of community meetings around Christchurch for homeowners who receive confirmation from EQC about whether or not their property has ILV land damage. “We want customers to have an opportunity to hear from us and our engineering advisers Tonkin and Taylor face-to-face, so that they can get a good understanding of what‘s been involved in making the qualification decision for their property,” Mr Land says. More information about the meetings and ILV land damage in general, including a comprehensive list of questions and answers, can be found on the EQC website at www.eqc.govt.nz/ILV.

COMMUNITY MEETINGS ON ILV LAND DAMAGE EQC is holding community meetings for homeowners who have been advised whether or not their property qualifies for Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) land damage.

In the Know Hub The Hub is a community-led initiative which brings various earthquake recovery agencies and support services together in one place. It’s located at the Eastgate Shopping Centre (next to the foodcourt) and is open Monday to Wednesday, 9am-6pm and Thursday, 9am-8pm At the Hub you can also talk to an EQC representative. To discuss your specific claim, you need to book first by calling 0800 326 243. For more information on the Hub see www.intheknow.org.nz

It is possible a property experienced significant liquefaction induced damage as a result of the earthquakes but will not qualify for ILV land damage. A property will only qualify for ILV where subsidence to the insured land has caused it to become materially more vulnerable to liquefaction. If the insured land was already prone to liquefaction before the earthquake and the vulnerability has not materially changed, it won’t qualify. What information was used for engineering assessments of a property? The qualification decisions are based on a number of sources of information, such as ground surface levels derived from aerial surveys (LiDAR), groundwater levels monitored through around 1,000 wells, and soil characteristics data from extensive geotechnical investigations involving 18,000 Cone Penetrometer Tests (CPTs), 4,000 boreholes, and 6,000 laboratory tests. How will you decide which properties will have their settlement based on DOV or on repair cost? EQC’s general preference is to settle ILV claims based on the repair cost together with any DOV of the insured land that is not remediated by the repair methodology. In general, EQC will adopt a repair methodology that remediates the land damage under and immediately around the house in line with the MBIE Guidance. This means there will be an area of the insured land that will not be remediated so the settlement may include an amount to reflect any DOV for this area. The nature of ILV land damage means that a repair methodology may not be technically feasible; able to be lawfully undertaken; or able to be undertaken, given the high costs and practicality of making the repairs. In these circumstances, EQC will settle the ILV land damage based on DOV. Where a property with ILV land damage has been sold since the earthquakes, the settlement will also be based on DOV. EQC may settle ILV land damage based on the repair costs where a repair methodology is available and the customer intends to undertake the repair of the land within a reasonable period of time using that methodology. When determining whether there is a repair methodology for a particular property, EQC will consider several factors, including whether it would be recommended by a prudent engineering advisor and whether it could be practically carried out on the property. The ILV Policy outlines how EQC will decide between repair or DOV settlement for a property and a copy of the Policy can be found on EQC website at www.eqc.govt.nz/ILV.

UPCOMING THURSDAY SEMINARS 5 November, 19 November and 3 December – 1-2pm and 6-7pm on all days Seminars are free to attend but due to limited space, you’re advised to book a place by calling 0800 777 482

Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) land damage – what it is and how a property qualifies for it A seminar for homeowners who last year heard from EQC that their property potentially has ILV land damage and who will receive confirmation late this year or early next year whether or not they have this type of land damage. This seminar will cover what ILV land damage is, how a property qualifies for this type of land damage that has never before in the world been recognised as insured damage, and next steps for qualifying properties. Keith Land, EQC Head of Canterbury Land, and EQC’s engineers Tonkin+Taylor will present.

Timeless style for the modern woman

S

ynonymous with minimalist construction, JNBY’s spring/summer 2015-2016 collections are brimming with stunning foundation and statement pieces that are guaranteed to breathe new life into any wardrobe. Unique architectural details, such as asymmetrical seams and hemlines, and unexpected darting and gathering of fabric, give each hand-crafted garment a fresh, yet enduring style, which people will return to again and again, year after year. Taking women effortlessly from work to play, day to night, simple silhouettes in luxurious natural fabrics, like silk, chiffon, linen and cotton, drape beautifully over the human form and wear well, and feel like a second skin, allowing the wearer’s inner beauty to shine through. Icy whites star this season with a neutral palette of cream, ivory and warm mocha, giving way to an earthy moss colour and khaki. Inky blacks are softened with smoky charcoal and soft grey, while muted teal, brilliant blue, canary yellow and bold red add a splash

of colour to enliven earthy tones and basic blacks. Tailored tuxedo jackets and blazers hang elegantly off the body, while tunics, dresses and skirts fall mostly below the knee or skim the ankles in light, billowy fabrics. Cropped pants are key, as are relaxed fit, full-length trousers, which look smart when teamed with a tailored ‘boy’ shirt or worn under one of this season’s many tunics. Transitioning from winter to summer is simple with this season’s easy-to-wear, midilength cardigan. With side pockets and button detailing on the cuff, the cardigan’s luxurious, soft cotton hangs beautifully off the body and keeps a chilly breeze at bay. Layered over dresses, tunics and trousers, the midilength cardigan epitomises JBNY’s uncomplicated

They include free blood tests for patients that are taking warfarin, and the provision of medication blister packs. “These are a big part of our service,” says Steve. “They are very useful for helping people remember to take their medications at the right time.” In addition, the pharmacists offer emergency contraception and are qualified to supply treatment for minor bladder infections in women. “We also have a good range of health supplements and vitamins, and our staff

are always happy to offer friendly advice to customers about these products. I encourage the staff to engage with people as that’s an important aspect of our role in being part of the community,” Steve says. QE11 Pharmacy stocks the DB (Designer Brand) cosmetic range, which offers quality cosmetics at very affordable price, as well as sun protection and first aid products. There is also an attractive selection of gift items, and now is a good time to start shopping for Christmas. New customers are welcome, says Steve, and existing customers will find familiar faces among the eight staff in store at QE11 Pharmacy, 251 Travis Rd, North New Brighton.

It boasts tobacco leaf, dried herbs, cocoa, blueberry and a gentle meaty character in the midpalate.

ll our body cell membranes are made up of phospholipids, exactly the same phospholipids as available in krill oil. These phospholipids available in krill are its big advantage over fish oil that is in a triglyceride form and that must be converted by our liver to phospholipid form to be able to have benefits to our cell membranes. This conversion of triglycerides to phospholipids is inefficient and a much larger dose of fish oil is needed for the same benefits as a much smaller dose of krill oil. Some research has shown krill oil to be 48 times more potent than fish oil. Another benefit of krill oil is it contains astaxanthin, one of the most potent antioxidants known. Recent research shows krill oil can lower your risk for cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, obesity and Type 2 diabetes, and may lessen a variety of brain and mental disorders including autism and dyslexia, Parkinson’s and some forms of Alzheimer’s disease.

It is also highly effective at reducing high cholesterol levels, increasing HDL cholesterol, reducing triglycerides (a damaging blood fat), reducing C-reactive protein and reducing other damaging blood factors. It can also reduce dangerous fat levels in the liver and heart. Krill oil is also a natural anti-inflammatory and can help reduce pain, improve joint function and reduce symptoms of arthritis. The secret is, therefore, the phospholipid and astaxanthin content rather than just the amount of krill oil in the soft gel capsule.
