HERO: Wannapa Kerr frantically yelled at her neighbour to get out of her flat (right) which was on fire. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN ANDREW KING

The frantic yells of Wannapa Kerr saved her sleeping neighbour from a flat fire in Linwood. Ms Kerr was sitting at her Aldwins Rd home watching television just after 4pm on


Tuesday when her daughter told her she could see flames coming from the rear flat. She ran to the front door of the flat, but did not know if her neighbour was at home. “I did see the flames through the window,� she said. She began frantically yelling

at her neighbour to get out of the house. “I yelled get out get out, fire fire.� Her neighbour, came to the door, but was confused and tried to re-enter the house. “Me and my daughter, we pull her out and she nearly walked

inside. She wanted to go back in and we pulled her out but she’s asleep and not sure what’s going on,� Ms Kerr said. Three fire crews were called to the blaze and it took about half an hour to put it out. The fire was caused by an electrical fault in a lounge

heater. Ms Kerr has only known her neighbour for about six months. She was thanked with a bunch of flowers. The rescued woman was not injured and will be staying with her daughter in the mean time.

Beefing up safety measures after pupil hit by car

MOTOR-CYCLES CRASH One person was taken to hospital on Monday after two motor-cycles crashed into one another in Hillmorton. St John was called to the scene at the intersection of Tankerville and Halswell Rds at 5.27am. The patient was taken to Christchurch Hospital with moderate injuries.


Te Waka Unua School will have safety improvements made on nearby roads, four months after a pupil was hit by a car while walking to school. A kea crossing, which will have barriers and adults patrolling it, will be installed on Hopkins St, outside the school entrance. Parking restrictions will be installed on Ferry Rd and Hopkins St, so parents can drop off their children close to the gates. The changes come after sixyear-old pupil Isaiah Matoe was hit by a car while crossing Ferry Rd on July 29. He was walking to school and did not cross at the Ferry Rd pedestrian crossing outside the school. His left ear had to be glued back on, and he suffered nasty cuts and bruises after being thrown into the air from the impact of being hit. Woolston and Phillipstown

schools merged to form Te Waka Unua at the start of the year, and moved to the Woolston School site. As a result, the city council was asked to investigate possible traffic safety issues due to more pupils in the area. The investigation showed the changes were needed, but determined the existing school patrol on the Ferry Rd crossing was appropriate. The Hagley-Ferrymead

Community Board approved the changes at its meeting on Wednesday. Ten-minute parking restrictions will be installed outside the school on Ferry Rd and will apply between 8.15-9.15am and 2.30-3.30pm on school days. Hopkins St will have 3min restrictions outside the school entrance which would also be in place at peak times on school days. City councillor Yani Johanson


said the school, police and city council staff worked together to come up with the measures. “It’s my view that this is good start to addressing some of the safety issues, but it is important to review the situation in six months to see the effectiveness of the new measures.” The city council hopes to install the parking restrictions by the end of the month and the kea crossing before the end of the year.

FIRE CALL-OUTS Woolston firefighters were called to Ferry Rd last Monday, to a cabbage tree on fire. The call-out came at about 4.30am and firefighters used one hose to extinguish it. On Friday, Addington firefighters were called to Hillmorton Hospital at about 10.30pm, where a rubbish bin had been set on fire inside the building. The room had filled with smoke, but the fire had been put out before firefighters arrived.

Switch it off – a little goes a long way Cashmere High School student Sam Andrist In 2012 Cashmere High School’s EcoDriver project began. A project designed to record our school’s energy usage to help us develop strategies to reduce power consumption. One of the first strategies we came up with was the “Switch-It Off” campaign. Original name, I know. It was just what was on the posters we were given. We went around classrooms putting up those posters, we went around assemblies to encourage other students to get on board. Recently, our school’s

our school saved $20,000 in power usage, 10 per cent of our total bill. Today we are constantly reminded about sustainability and resource scarcity, yet there is surprisingly little action. Many people think “One person can’t make a difference.” In this situation this is 100 per cent true, in isolation. However, hundreds and thousands of people can. If everyone takes the attitude that they can help, we can achieve worthwhile results. According to the NZ Electricity Authority, an average house in NZ spends $1950 per year on power. Therefore an average household could save $195 per year by “switching off” around their home. Why not involve your children and tell them they can keep whatever they save for pocket money. Get them started early! Not to sound preachy but a little difference can go a long way, together.

SOAP BOX power bill had doubled to $200,000. The aim behind “Switch-It Off” was to instigate a behaviour change within our school. Every time a student or staff member left a room, they were reminded by a poster to turn off the lights, projectors and computers. It was a simple plan and I have to say I didn’t anticipate massive results. It felt like a token action that made the council look like it was busy instead of sitting around talking about action. I was wrong. In one year

Rowley house set for new beginnings BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

After a human chain and a community effort, the Rowley Resource Centre has officially moved into its new home. A blessing was held at the site of the new centre at 89 Rowley Ave last week, where community board members, residents, church representatives and school children celebrated the move. Human Rights commissioner Richard Tankersley, who used to live in the area, blessed the building and rooms. Resource centre manager Donna McAleer said the blessing symbolised a new beginning. “We’ll just think of what other interests there are in community development, enhancing the connections and creating opportunities for a wider range of people.” The group hopes to demolish the current garage and build a multi-use space, and will work on fundraising for that. The centre would also like to provide internet access, which has not been available in the

past, she said. They hoped to have an official opening in the new year. The blessing comes after the centre took a novel approach to shifting its contents to its new premises. In September, a human chain was formed to pass along its contents from its former home at 59 Rowley Ave, to the new one. Police, university students, residents, school pupils, local shop workers and church groups all participated in the 250m chain.

ACKNOWLEDGING LEADERS A Women in Local Leadership gathering will be held on Thursday to recognise the women in leadership roles across the Spreydon-Heathcote ward. The gathering was the initiative of community board deputy chairwoman Karolin Potter. She said a number of women behind community organisations did not get enough recognition. This was a chance for the women to meet, socialise, and discuss how things run and share ideas.

OPENING TIME Te Hāpua: Halswell Centre is NEW BEGINNING: opening on Saturday. The new Richard community centre and library Tankersley is at 341 Halswell Rd. There conducted will be a number of events to the blessing celebrate the occasion. These of the Rowley will include its official opening, Resource a family day, an older persons’ Centre. day, and facility tours.

EDUCATION INITIATIVE Bamford, Linwood Avenue, Tamariki, and Te Waka Unua are part of a group of seven schools that will be working with 2197 students as part of the Linwood Woolston Community of Learning. “This means local kids in the Port Hills will benefit from shared teaching practices and expertise, with teachers working alongside each other on goals to help improve educational outcomes in the classroom,” Port Hills National MP Nuk Korako said. The collaboration is being funded through the Government’s $359 million Investing in Educational Success initiative. FOSTERING YOUTH The Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board has granted former Cashmere High School student Hamish Keown $300 towards the cost of attending the 2015 Commonwealth 33Sixty Leadership Programme. The programme ran from Tuesday to Friday in Malta. The funding was approved on Wednesday, from the board’s youth development fund. • Full story p12.

Lion turns Santa’s helper for Lions member Dick Johns has helped to create 1000 Christmas toys to be distributed to children via the Lions Club of Christchurch South. He talks to Fraser Walker-Pearce about being part of Santa’s workshop. You’re involved with the Lions, Santa’s workshop, and a Justice of the Peace. You’re a busy man, is that fair to say? Yes, I am involved with all of those things. I do other voluntary work at the police kiosk at Cathedral Square every Thursday. But not this Thursday because this week is our blokes’ lunch day, which we have once a month. This week we’re going to lunch in Governors Bay. I live by myself, so it’s good to go out. How did you become involved with Santa’s workshop? I had 12 months as the district manager for the Lions in 2000, and I was asked to be the Lions representative on the committee for Santa’s workshop. So I said yes I’d do that. I didn’t realise at the time that we were voting in a new chairman. My name was put forward. Mine was the only name put forward, so I was elected chairman in 2000. So now I’ve

been chairman for 15 years! You sound like a very giving man. I just want to leave the world in a better place than when I arrived. What is Santa’s workshop all about? It’s a workshop held at Shirley Intermediate, in one of the wood shop rooms. We used to be at the Shirley Community Centre, but that was pretty destroyed after the earthquakes. So that’s where we meet on Monday and Wednesday mornings. Sounds like great fun! What do you make? We make trains with two carriages, and push- and pull-along toys. This year, we’ve started sewing dolls and their clothes, and the Lions Club makes bedding for the dolls. There’s also a coloured blocks set, a series of racing cars and wooden trucks, noughts and crosses boards, and spinning tops. This year, we

Christmas created 1000 toys, which is our goal for every year. We’ve also just added Chinese checkers. Wow, 1000 toys every year. Have you ever delivered a toy you’ve made yourself to someone? No, I haven’t. But I have taken several lots to play groups, kindergartens and the like, so they’re used by a whole range of children. Are you also involved with the Lions of New Brighton? For how long? I’ve been involved with them for 30 years. It makes me wonder where all the time’s gone! It’s great because it’s a mixed group of male and female, and I enjoy the fellowship with people who are like-minded. It was my next door neighbour, who was a member at the Lions in New Brighton, who took me along the first time, and I’ve loved it ever since. What’s the best part of being a Lion? It’s the opportunity to serve the community and individuals. We had a young lad who we helped to go to the University Games in South Korea this year. He came along and spoke last night,


Monday November 23 2015

and told us of his achievements in athletics, and that he was aspiring to be included in the next Olympics. Were you born and bred in Canterbury? Yes – been here all my life. Would you change it? No way! Wouldn’t change that even if I could. I have four adult kids – three of them live in Christchurch and one on the Gold Coast. We’re a very familyoriented group. We are always having family meals and we’ve kept that family feeling all the way through. Have you ever travelled outside of New Zealand? My wife and I travelled to England 15 years ago to attend the international convention in Birmingham. After that we travelled through Scotland, which was great. Otherwise we’ve been to Australia too many times to count. Where is your favourite spot in the world? Oh, that’s a hard one. It would have to be somewhere in the South Island, definitely. I very much like North Canterbury. I’d say Amberley and the Waipara area – the countryside, I just love.

Putting on a good show

ENTERTAINERS: St Peter’s School pupils, including Lilly Wehi and Isabella Thom (centre), were entertained by first year students from the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art on Wednesday. The students performed a show which was about two sisters who were made to feel they were not beautiful. They found a fairy godfather who gave them a potion to make them beautiful but they learn, without taking the potion that they are beautiful on the inside and it doesn’t matter what they look like.

GIVING: Hillview Christian School pupils were thinking of less fortunate people in the city when they collected 1166 cans of food to go to the Christchurch City Mission. The Can a Day project saw the junior school collect 508 cans, while the senior school got 658. It took more than two van loads to get the food to the mission. The project showed what people can do if they all work together.

BUSINESS MINDS: Some of Linwood College’s year 10 students showed off their entrepreneurial skills last week as part of the BP Business Challenge programme. The students split into groups and were coached through the process of developing a product and taking the product to market. They presented their ideas to a panel of judges from the business community. The judges were impressed with their ideas, team building and marketing skills. Students Emily Dehn, Shivani Prasad, Callum Lawson, Luke Russell and Natasha Keating (front row) were named the winners by judges Melissa Stanley, of Pacific Business Trust, Ben Dunn, of Downer, Blair Ashdowne, of Heatpumps Now, Gareth Turner, of Westpac and TK NEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf 1 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m. Buchanan, of Harvey Norman (back row).

Beckenham Acupuncturist joins health professionals at

Halswell HealtH centre Acupuncturist Jeff Silver has finished moving his Chinese medicine practice from Wholebody Health in Beckenham to the new Longhurst Allied Health Centre in Halswell, where he had already been seeing patients two or three days a week.


e has joined the group of health professionals – GPs, pharmacists and a dentist – who set up Longhurst Integrative Health Centre with the vision of providing a community health facility where patients could receive a range of health services. The new allied health complex also includes physiotherapy, podiatry, chiropractic and hand therapy services, as well as offices for Canterbury DHB, CYF and Nurse Maude. Originally from California where he ran an acupuncture and natural medicine clinic in

Santa Cruz, Jeff moved to New Zealand with his wife and two young children in 2006. Prior to opening his Beckenham clinic, he managed and taught at the New Zealand College of Chinese Medicine in Christchurch, and was the first person in the South Island to teach Chinese herbal medicine. The college closed at the end of 2012 due to earthquake issues. Jeff also serves on the Executive Board of the NZ Acupuncture Standards Authority and as an advisor to the NZ Health and Disability Commissioner on acupuncture issues. Jeff ’s shift to Longhurst Allied Health is the

culmination of two years’ talking with the Halswell Health doctors, and he is thrilled to be in the brand-new, purpose-built premises. “It’s really exciting being here, and we are all working together to build a great space, both to work in and for people to come in to be healed,” Jeff says. Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of health issues, including digestive, respiratory, menstrual and prostate issues, as well as pain, he says; Jeff is an authorised ACC treatment provider. It is also effective for treating intangible health problems such as stress and anxiety, which can lead to depression. He also works with couples having difficulty conceiving. Jeff says acupuncture can be effective in treating patients with long-standing

health problems that haven’t responded to conventional treatments, and the Longhurst GPs are now referring some patients to him. “Seeing improvement in these patients and taking them from feeling hopeless to a place of hope, I really enjoy that. That’s the real accomplishment, giving them back the life they didn’t feel they could have.” To make an appointment with Jeff Silver at Acupuncture Longhurst, phone 595 0050, or book online at

Young leaders Students off to The Hague visit Malta

Former Cashmere High School student Hamish Keown has just represented New Zealand at a leadership programme in Malta. The 23-year-old took part in the 2015 Commonwealth 33Sixty Leadership Programme which ran from Tuesday to Friday. He was one of 100 to attend. The programme brings young leaders together to give them the skills and experience to lead change and use the Commonwealth’s networks effectively. It is called 33Sixty because 33 per cent of the world’s population lives in the Commonwealth, of whom 60 per cent are under the age of 30. This year the programme focused on the question: ‘How can we stop people profiting from migration?’ The participants of the programme had to come up with responses to the question by visiting organisations across Malta and hearing from senior leaders from across the Commonwealth. Mr Keown has been involved with youth-based initiatives including having been the chairman and secretary of the Christchurch Youth Council. He received a city council Civic Award for community youth services last year. He is

Two teenagers, from Cracroft and Cashmere, are bound for The Hague. Evangeline Maffey and Amelia McLuskie have been selected to represent New Zealand at The Hague International Model United Nations conference in January and February. They will join Cashmere High School student Esme Hall at the conference, and 19 others from New Zealand. The event is the premier annual international conference where UN youths participate. It is hosted annually at The Hague, with about 4000 students from all over the world taking part in a week-long Model UN in which each delegation represents the views of another country. It gives participants the opportunity to develop their debating and negotiation skills, and deepen their knowledge of UN systems. Evangeline is the United Nations Youth High School Ambassador for the Canterbury region. She is a school prefect, an international ambassador and head of the formal committee at Middleton Grange School. She also volunteers as a school librarian, school canteen assistant, and assists with the soup kitchen’s feeding the

Regular hearing checks recommended to maintain

quality of life

Like our eyesight, hearing is one of our most precious assets contributing to our enjoyment of life and our relationships.


ut like eyesight, it can deteriorate over time, lessening that enjoyment and creating frustration, stress and isolation. Hearing loss can affect people at any age, with 10 per cent of New Zealanders experiencing some form of hearing loss.

EVERY SIXTH HAIRCUT IS FREE! (With our loyalty card)

A reduction in hearing ability does not usually happen suddenly – it is a gradual process that we don’t realise is happening, although others around us do. Having difficulty joining in conversations with family and friends or mishearing what people say, needing to turn the television up

to levels that are uncomfortable for others, or not hearing knocks at the door are all indications our hearing is deteriorating. Tinnitus or ringing in the ears can also be a sign of hearing loss. While loss of hearing is a natural part of ageing, other factors that affect our hearing include hereditary conditions, exposure to excessive noise over time, such as loud music or machinery, certain medications and head injuries. Experienced audiologists Carolyn Gordon and Carolyn Till of Gordon and Till Audiology recommend having your hearing checked regularly to maintain your hearing ability. “Research has shown that if you haven’t had your hearing checked by a professional within the last five years, your risk of mishearing increases by around 23 per cent,” Carolyn Gordon says. “We have also successfully managed many cases of bothersome tinnitus, and highly recommend hearing aids for people with


tinnitus who also have hearing loss. Up to 70 per cent of people with hearing loss and tinnitus notice a reduction in their tinnitus when fitted with hearing aids.” Having hearing aids fitted in the early stages of hearing loss will enable you to continue to enjoy communicating with others. It will make you feel more confident in social situations, enhance your quality of life and improve your outlook for good hearing and understanding over the long term,” says Carolyn Till. The audiologists point out that today’s technologically advanced hearing aids are also much smaller and more discreet, so they correct your hearing without anyone noticing you are wearing them. Gordon and Till Audiology offers a free 14-day, no-obligation trial of hearing aids. In most instances, government subsidies and other funding is available when purchasing. To make an appointment, call into 701 Barbadoes St, phone 385 6036 or visit the website They also have visiting clinics at Halswell and Leeston.

Research trial procedure eases

grandmother’s ‘racing heart’ terror


n the middle of a cold night, Christchurch grandmother Kathleen wakes suddenly and calls out in distress to her husband, she is struggling to breathe and her heart is racing at a frightening pace. Rushed to the emergency department, Kathleen is given oxygen and her heart beat stabilised. The following day, as she readies herself for a trip to hospital and a chest x-ray, the same scary symptoms occur and Kathleen is admitted to intensive care. “It was extremely scary being admitted to intensive care with my heart racing – I thought I was going to die” Kathleen recalls. During her two-day stay, doctors diagnose Kathleen with heart failure. This is a condition where the heart cannot pump blood the way it should or cannot send blood to the rest of the body with enough force. The Christchurch Heart Institute was researching the effectiveness of a surgical procedure called renal denervation as a treatment for certain types of heart failure. This trial involved a simple catheter procedure to remove excess nerve signals to and from the kidneys. Kathleen joined the trial in November 2013 and had the renal denervation procedure done at Christchurch Hospital. In the years since then, she has been free of any episodes of the ‘terrifying’ racing heart. “Since taking part in the trial I sleep better knowing that my heart doesn’t race anymore” says Kathleen. “Although Kathleen attributes the improvement of her condition to the study,

“Since taking part in the trial I sleep better knowing that my heart doesn’t race anymore” says Kathleen. we cannot be certain that her improvement arose from the experimental use of renal denervation, or the changes in her medication as well; and these may be the true cause of her improvements. The benefits or otherwise of renal denervation in heart failure remain uncertain and it requires more research before any routine application in Heart Failure is established” states the Christchurch Heart Institute’s Director, Professor Richards. Funding for this trial was provided through the Health Research Council and Medtronic
