Orders are being taken now for Christmas

Council may face with legal action if homes flooded „„ By Sophie Cornish THE CITY council has been threatened with legal action if homes in South New Brighton are damaged in a flood. The South New Brighton Residents’ Association has issued a formal notice of liability to the city council, claiming it has failed to install proper flood protection north of Bridge St and south of Owles Tce. The notice means if a flooding event does occur, the association could take the city council to court and may find it liable for damages. A city council spokeswoman said it does not accept it would be liable if the area is flooded. “The council will not be making any changes to its current process as a result of the notice of liability. The council considers its recent decisions provide a satisfactory way forward for addressing current flooding issues,” she said. But association chairman Hugo Kristinsson believes the city council could be held liable under the Land Drainage Act and Soil, Conservation and Rivers Control Act. •Turn to page 7

Getting into the spirit of City2Surf

CHRISTMAS MIGHT be right on the radar but there’s another big event looming too – the City2Surf. Yep, it’s only a handful of months away (see page 4) so it’s time to start lacing up those running shoes and pounding the pavement or local park to get in some sort of shape. The great thing about the City2Surf – and this hasn’t changed over the decades – is that anyone regardless of shape or fitness level can take part. A face that will appear on the marketing of City2Surf this year is Jesel Royokada, a Fijian pastor. And remember it’s a family event: It’s free for children 10 and under to participate. Barry Clarke

Pastor asks congregation to get involved in event as a way to connect with other cultures. Earlybird entries open on December 1 at http://www.city2surf.co.nz/

East pushes for 50m QE II pool „„ By Sophie Cornish COASTAL-BURWOOD Ward city councillor David East is pushing for the community to “have a conversation” about the possibility of a 50m pool at the new QE II. The call comes after Minister for Greater Christchurch Regeneration Megan Woods announced a U-turn on the proposed Metro Sports Facility, axing the current contractors Leighs Cockram Joint Venture. Dr Woods announced there were ‘considerable issues’ with David East the plans for the multi-million dollar complex, including a $75 million budget blowout, making the proposed costs more than $321 million. Dr Woods’ spokesman said right now she is focusing on investigating options for the central city. “This includes the possibility of combining the Metro Sports Facility and the Multi-Use Arena . . . however, we are meeting with the sports codes this week and are keen to listen to any ideas they have.”

metro sports is worse land than QE II and it would seem a quick fix to build the 50m pool at QE II where it was for many years and was well accepted by the city,” said Cr East in a post on Facebook. He claims the cost of adding a 50m pool to QE II would be ‘vastly less’ than a new complex and would leave an indoor sports complex for the city to cater for other sport such as netball, which could be built at a lesser

Save the Date

cost. Cr East believes the project could easily be started within a year as “a large part of the infrastructure is already there.” “When we designed and commissioned the build we’ve got now, one of the key aspects of that design was that if we needed to add to it in any fashion, ie a 50m pool, it could be done relatively easily.” Cr East said the idea will have community backing.

FUNDRAISER RECIPIENTS The Rockabilly Show and Shine organisers have announced the recipients of this year’s fundraising efforts. The New Brighton Project will receive $2500 for its annual Christmas Parade. The New Brighton Cricket Club will receive $1000 toward its club room rebuild. I Love New Brighton will get $700 for its annual community fun day. New Brighton Catholic School will get $500 towards their new school hall and New Brighton Community Gardens $500 also for their support and work within the community. The money was collected from donations on entry to the event.

Getting into the spirit of „„ By Andrew King JESEL ROYOKADA embodies everything that is the Star Media City2Surf. Last year he was photographed leaping into the air after crossing the line capturing the spirit of the event. Now, the Christchurch Fijian Seventh-Day Adventist Church pastor has asked his congregation of about 80 to get involved in the event as a way to connect with other cultures. “We come from the islands and sometimes we do things in our own island groups but it is good to get involved with the rest of

the community,” he said. The 31-year-old encouraged about 25 of his parishioners to get involved in the event last year “It was the first time our church has got involved with something like this,” he said. He said they were told about the event by Healthy Families Christchurch, part of a nationwide Government initiative a​ imed at helping New Zealanders live healthy, active lives. “I would like to see all 80 of them out there, and their friends and families. We can even have kids in prams at the event,” he said.

He said they will start to train soon for the event, which will be held on March 18. The event is split into two sections – 6km and 14km. The Star Media City2Surf with Les Mills 14km event starts in Centennial Park, Spreydon, at 9am. The Sport Canterbury 6km event starts at 10am in Hansen Park, Opawa. Both finish at the Ferrymead playing fields. There will be after-event entertainment with live music, food and free children’s entertainment in the finish area. Earlybird entries open online on December 1 and cost $20. They can be purchased from http://www.city2surf.co.nz/ Standard entry from January 1 will cost $25 online or tickets can be purchased from The Athletes Foot, Pak’n Save and New World supermarkets. Children 10 and under are free to participate. •The Star Media City2Surf will be held on March 18. Early bird entries will be available from December 1 at http://www.city2surf. co.nz/

Phil Burleigh (Scotland), Ryan Crotty (All Blacks) and Kieron Fonotia (Manu Samoa) are all plying their trade on the international scene. However, they were all a part of the 2004 Shirley Boys’ High first XV. They also played through the grades at New Brighton. But at Shirley Boys’ High, they only played seven games between them in the midfield – all in the 2004 season. Burleigh spent most of his time in 2004 as the first choice halfback, Crotty ran the backline at No 10 before finishing the last four games of the season at second-five. Fonotia split his time between right wing and fullback. They now all don the No 13 jersey. Shirley assistant coach in 2004, Mike Skinner, said they were all good boys who spent a lot of time on the back field “sunning themselves”. He said Crotty could win

Fonotia has been playing for Welsh side, Ospreys, one of four professional union teams in the country which compete in the Pro14 and the European Rugby Champions Cup. In 2018, Fonotia will move to Scarlets, another Welsh club. Burleigh joined Edinburgh Rugby on a two-year deal in 2014 from the Highlanders and extended his contract in 2016 for another two years.

Legal action threatened over flooding

•From page 1 “Also, we pay rates, which makes (city council) liable in my opinion. However, that defines determination in front of the courts,” Mr Kristinsson said. How a potentially expensive legal case would be funded is unknown. “We will address that if it comes to it but I sincerely hope that we have a responsible local government that it doesn’t have to come to that.” The notice mentions a number of errors and ‘neglect’ in the area since the earthquake. This includes an error found in city council flooding mapping, resulting in a number of houses being built with extremely low floor levels. “A

serious mistake for which no one has been held accountable,” said the notice.

These houses required no resource consents and were built using ‘existing use rights’, an

exemption under the Resource Management Act with floor levels as low as 11.27m above the Christchurch city datum. “This is a breach of the Building Act, yet the council has taken no action to compensate the affected homeowners or to remedy their increased flood risk and loss of property,” the notice reads. A temporary stop-bank exists on Kibblewhite St. It is less than 20m from housing directly opposite and is the only protection for a number of houses that are at a lower level than high tide. River water leaks through at high tide and the stop-bank was almost breached during the flood event in July this year.

School band in recording studio „„ By Sophie Cornish AWARD-winning Chisnallwood Intermediate School band Class Disruption joined the big league last week, recording an original in a studio. Earlier this year, the band won national competition Bandquest, the intermediate

and created the video complete with smoke machines and a light show. “It was a really fun and amazing experience,” said band member Dylan Jonkers. Take It Away was written by Dylan and is about having confidence in yourself and not

Readers respond to the New Brighton fireworks display article Pamela Neil – No more fireworks until the whole thing can be done in a more professional way. Take a lesson from Sydney and Brisbane. Tamsin Carter – Guy Fawkes fireworks display should be held on Guy Fawkes Day. It’s the backyard fireworks that should go. Although the traffic is bad getting in and out of New Brighton, the view for the show on the pier is great . . . you can also watch from up on the hills. Tanya Didham – Would prefer to see New Brighton fireworks in winter, maybe to celebrate mid-winter/Matariki! Guy Fawkes is just a weird thing to celebrate anyway, and it’s a bit silly having to wait so long for it to get dark.

broke, don’t fix it. Hamish Middleton – Weekend before daylight saving. Could do somewhere like Riccarton or Addington Racecourse where there is heaps of parking, heaps of seating and lots of access. Could have music/bands with existing set up.

Ruben Witteman – No. The pier is cool, you can sit on the beach miles away and see them clearly. Better than everyone crammed into Hagley Park. Nic Davies – Yes, move it into the park, New Brighton is too hard to get in and out of. Karen Beaumont – Why not have two, on both side of town at the same time. Split the problems. Madeleine Hurricks – Matariki time please . . . less fire risk, more dark hours and so Kiwi. Aubrey Walker – Majority rules, keep Guy Fawkes in New Brighton.

Sylvia Oliver – How about it just stops. Try New Year instead. Maryanne Hay – Don’t change it, it is set on November 5 for a reason people need to get over themselves. It’s once a year, your kids ain’t going to die from staying up late one night in the year and don’t change it from New Brighton, we get forgotten here and I would hate for them to take this away from us locals too. Jo Zuydendorp – If it ain’t

Peter Warren – Leave it at New Brighton . . . we don’t need to set fire to any other part of the city . . . safer over water. It would be an advantage to hold it before daylight saving . . . winter hours would be good but weather/temperatures less predictable. And get rid of firework sales. Anne Marchant – Yes, fireworks should be at mid-winter.

Earlier, darker, more fun. It’s the right time of year. Who cares about this guy, Fawkes? It would be nice to borrow the name Matariki, if local Maori agree. But let’s have the winter fireworks anyway. Traffic problems can be solved – treat it as a rehearsal for emergency evacuation, and direct some traffic over the Bridge St bridge. Philip Humphreys – It’s the one time of the year New Brighton gets to put itself on show why take that’s away from the east side. Tania Watkins – European history is as much a part of New Zealand history now as Maori history. Or the history of any other culture living here. When are we going to celebrate being a multi-cultural community? Readers respond to the merger plan for the Rawhiti and Avondale golf clubs which has gone off course Jo Zervos – These golf courses should not have been included in Regenerate’s planning

options at all, they are not part of the red zone. Rachel Turner – Maybe that was the idea – for the council to portray that they are “listening to the people”, when it was never going to happen in the first place. Tanya Didham – Was a completely weird last minute addition. I certainly hope it is dead in the water. Pamela Neil – There are more important issues in the city than worrying about where to relocate a golf course. Richard Rowe – We all hope the Government will act on what the majority tell them they want or don’t want. Especially when they ask for it. Does anyone believe Regenerate Christchurch will do that? Karen Whila - Good it was a silly idea for the red zone. Stephen Graham – Rawhiti should be left as it is, a park/reserve/golf course (and, of course, cricket, culture at its highest).

Principal retires on high note

Pond to be drained to control midges

„„ By Sophie Cornish

WATER IS being drained from one of the oxidation ponds in Bromley as part of an ongoing programme to reduce midge numbers in the area. The city council has traditionally relied on chemical dosing alone to keep their numbers down. The fish-free shallow, warm waters of the oxidation ponds are the perfect breeding ground for midges. “A critical step in the life cycle of the midge is spent as larvae in the sediment at the bottom of the ponds,’’ said city council water and wastwater operations manager Adam Twose. “Emptying the pond and exposing the sediment to the sun, dries the sediment out and removes the moisture the larvae need to survive, effectively sterilising the pond of midges,’’ said Mr Twose. The technique is being trialled in one pond initially. “We will be monitoring the situation closely as there is a possibility that odours and dust could be generated as the pond bottom dries out. However, if the trial is as successful as we hope and doesn’t have too many unexpected side effects, we could sunbake the other ponds in the future.’’

SOUTH NEW Brighton School’s principal will retire after 10 years at the helm. John Bockett will finish up at the end of the year. He will be replaced by Sue Walls, who is principal at Ramarama School, near the Bombay Hills south of Auckland. The father of three begun at the school in 2007 and was principal during the earthquakes and school merger process. Board of trustees chairman John Pearson said Mr Bockett ‘shepherded’ the school through these times. “(He) leaves our school with a strong curriculum, a stable staff and many fond memories for students, staff and families.” Mr Pearson said for some staff and students, he is the only principal they have worked with. “Parting will be tough . . . John has also started us on the path of rebuilding, both the physical school and restoring the confidence of the community. Our new principal is tasked with continuing that rebuilding and leading the school to the next stage of development,” said Mr Pearson. Mr Bockett’s retirement plans include rest and relaxation,

spending time with grandchildren and travels in his caravan and overseas. He said the biggest low in his 10 years was following the earthquake, hearing that the school may be considered for a merger, or that it may no longer exist. An equally high point, however, was when this didn’t hap-

pen, and the school managed to change the view of the Minster of Education. “We stayed our own identity . . . that was a pretty massive day when we heard that,” he said. Mr Bockett is also proud of achieving his goal of being one of the first schools on east Christchurch to reopen after the

earthquake. “I am very sad about leaving, I will certainly miss the place. It will be very strange waking up in the morning and not having to get ready for work,” said Mr Bockett. “The kids keep me young too, I will have to look to my grandkids to help with that now.”

Shops bursting with festive gift ideas The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making up the Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you haven’t already done so.

Finding those special gifts and stocking fillers as well as the Christmas treats for the table is so easy at our city’s malls and shopping centres, where the shops are bursting with festive merchandise. Every woman likes to receive bodypampering gifts, and there is a huge selection of these priced to suit all budgets at the many pharmacies and gift shops around the city. Perfume is another favourite and again there is a wide selection to choose from, ranging from exciting new releases to the well-known fragrances that have stood the test of time. Lingerie, jewellery, fashion accessories, homewares and decor items – there’s no end to the ideas for the women on the list. The men are equally well catered for, from the sophisticated metro-male boyfriends, to the car-crazy brothers and the DIY

enthusiast and keen gardener husbands and dads. Choose from clothing, books, tools, personal grooming items and gadgets to put a smile on their face on Christmas morning. Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families more joy than seeing the excitement of the children opening their presents. Whether they are delivered by Santa or snuck under the tree by mum and dad, the cuddly toys, games, dolls and building blocks, the candy canes, toy trucks and pretty dresses currently filling the shops will bring squeals of sheer happiness from the smallest family members. The tweens and teens usually have their own ideas about what they want for Christmas, so the gift cards offered by a wide range of retailers are the perfect way to please.

Creative wrapping adds intrigue to gifts Most of the malls offer a free gift-wrapping service, which is a great help at this busy time, but for those who prefer to wrap their own here are a few ideas to make gifts look unique and exciting.

The first tip to make the job easier and the wrapping look more professional is to do the task on a flat surface – a table or a hard floor. Recycling has become an important aspect of modern-day life, and that’s easy to do with gift-wrapping. For example, those brown paper bags you have put aside are ideal, especially for odd-shaped gifts. To give them a Christmassy look, you could glue on those left-over pieces of wrapping paper from last year that are too small to use, and add a candy cane or chocolate with the gift tag. Another quirky idea is to wrap your gifts in fabric. You could cut up a garment you no longer wear, or look out those left over pieces from curtains or clothing you have made. Tie them up with fabric ribbon to complete the look.

Designer Fashion

Using newspaper or cardboard boxes as wrapping is another recycling idea, and you could add a festive look by tying them with Christmas ribbon. For long-shaped gifts, why not wrap them to look like a Christmas cracker. Place a tube of cardboard around the item, then put it inside a sheet of wrapping paper, secure it with tape then scrunch up the ends like a cracker and tie them off with coloured ribbon. Kitchen foil is another wrapping option. Being silver and shiny it already has a festive look, which you could enhance with bright-coloured ribbon. Make a container, such as a jar, tin or tray one part of the gift. Complete it with chocolates, nuts or biscuits and wrap the gift in clear cellophane tied with brightcoloured ribbon.

1 in 2 people deficient in B12 Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults & as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12. Scientists at Rush University Medical Center found those most deficient in vitamin B12 to have the smallest brain mass & the lowest scores on tests measuring short-term memory, concentration & brain performance. Another study showed that older people with higher levels of B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier brains & score higher on cognitive tests than those with lower levels. Yet another recent landmark study showed that B12 supplementation slows the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage & declining cognitive function. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health, regulation of mood & sleep cycles, nerve health & repair, & prevention of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that is known to cause damage & plaque in the blood vessels. It can also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a 34% decrease risk of vision loss in a study of participants aged 40+ who supplemented with B12. Another study linked a higher risk of

hearing loss in subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12. The reason so many people lack B12 appears to be our body’s ability to absorb it declining with age as the digestive system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux medication & other drugs further reduce B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the mouth & thru bypassing the digestive tract have been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in the body.

New hope for patients suffering from MS, strokes or spinal injuries

Special offer for DeceMBer - if you have suffered a stroke, spinal injury or have MS, then this article is for you.

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury, and other physical and mental health issues, Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of treatment that brings fast, and often immediate results. A graduate of Beijing Medical College, Dr Lan established an acupuncture clinic in Christchurch in 1993. As she continued her research and medical practice, she discovered a reflexology network on the human body, an exciting new discovery that became the foundation of her new treatment – acupuncture without needles. Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt instrument to stimulate the reflexology points on the face or other parts of the body. When the point is stimulated by pressure, a message is sent to the repair centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan explains, the treatment increases energy, which boosts the body’s healing system. The body will heal injuries naturally, she says, but that is a slow process. In addition, many people will start to use their injured part, for example a knee or an ankle, before it is properly healed, therefore prolonging the injury and even causing chronic pain. With her powerful treatment, results are produced very quickly – even instantly. She likens it to the differences between the power of a car – natural healing, of an aeroplane – other types of natural healing, and of a rocket –

True

reflexology network. It brings fast results because it is a very precise treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses it to treat people of all ages with many different types of pain in all parts of the body, including arthritic pain, MS, and pain from injury, and there are no side-effects. Depression and anxiety, often the result of ongoing low energy, can also be overcome with Dr Lan’s treatment. Dr Lan’s treatment can give amazing, instant improvement for muscle weakness and numbness caused by nerve damage such as MS, stroke and spinal injury. Search You Tube for Dr Lan reflexology to see lots of instant results videos. Dr Lan has published a book, Dr Lan’s Reflexology Network, which introduces the treatment and explains how it works. Her website, www. drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes treatment videos, where people who have had the treatment speak about the fast relief it has brought them. Dr Lan is offering 10 patients of stroke, 10 patients of MS and 10 patients of spinal injury half price for their rehabb. Phone 323 4168, mobile 027 231 8388.

GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING Christchurch Course Dates 2017 Venue: 32 Birmingham Drive, Middleton

Ensuring a safe work place Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace.

This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider.
