Stand up and be counted urge park opponents „„ By Emily O’Connell OPPONENTS TO the Denton Park mega facility plan are urging people to stand up and be counted. THose fighting the park from being used for Hornby’s $35.7 million sport and community centre, say public consultation early next year could be their last chance to stop Denton Park being the site for the project. This follows the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board meeting last week, where the reclassification process for Denton Park was approved. In order to build on 9766 sq m of the park, the reserve classification has to change. Save Denton Park group chairman Mark Peters is wanting locals to take a stand for the park in the public consultation process which starts on January 20 and goes until March 24. He also suggested residents should have their say beforehand as well. “We have to fight to keep our local park,” Mr Peters said. Sitting in on the last week’s meeting was the city council’s chief executive officer Dr Karleen Edwards. Mr Peters said it was “initimidating” having her there but also granted her “credit for showing up.” He said the meeting went better than expected and he was happy he was able to give a deputation to board. •Turn to page 8

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 wil appear on the marketing of City2Surf this year is Jesel Royokada, a Fijian pastor. And remember it’s a family event – children 10 and under are free 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/

Police say no to bus lounge bylaw „„ By Emily O’Connell POLICE AREN’T backing a bylaw to help stop anti-social behaviour at the Riccarton bus lounge. The lounge, on the corner of Riccarton Rd and Division St, has been plagued with youth issues since it opened in December 2015. A working party consisting of board members, business and landowners, police, community groups and residents’ Lianne Dalziel association representatives have made 19 recommendations to help solve the issues. These include introducing an anti-loitering bylaw, playing music in Division St which would attract more people to the area and changing the current bus lounge Wi-Fi policies. A report was given to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board last week with an update on the recommendations. One update included a letter from Inspector John Robinson,

safe using this facility,” he said. Senior Sergeant McDaniel said they are looking at doing this “through any recommendations made from a Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design review, increasing CCTV surveillance and signage, reviewing security and increasing police presence.” The report said the city council has made a request to Westfield Riccarton management to consider installing additional security cameras along Division St. If the mall decline, about $10,000 of community board funding would be required for the cameras. The report also said increasing the access is part of the city council’s strategy and needs further investigation. As for playing music along Division St to attract more people to the area, the report said speakers will be installed on the outside of the bus lounge. Deputy chairwoman Helen Broughton made an amendment to the report, for the community board to review the recommendations in the new year. City councillor Vicki Buck also made an amendment for up to $5500 to be allocated for the CPTED report.

In Brief BUS STOPS TO GO The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board approved the removal of eight redundant bus stops in Templeton at its meeting last week. The stops are located on Kirk Rd. The city council was contacted by a resident who stated they had sometimes seen people waiting at the bus stops for a bus which would never come, and requested removal of the signs. BROCKWORTH PL MURALS The community board also approved a $2000 grant for supplies for the Brockworth Pl murals. The murals are being painted by advocate advisor Damian Holt. The funding was from the board’s 2017-18 Discretionary Response Fund. $10,000 ILAM BURGLARY Jewellery, vitamins and foreign money, to the value of $10,000, has been stolen from an Ilam flat. The house was broken into last week and the burglars took with them what flatmate Carly Fisher is describing as “very sentimental and personal items.” Miss Fisher said it was especially disappointing as they were moving flats in less than a week.

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/

Lieu day decision could be appealed „„ By Emily O’Connell FAST FOOD giant, Wendy’s, may appeal the decision on lieu days. Wendy’s chief executive officer Danielle Lendich told Western News neither party won in the determination. “The authority member has come up with an alternative interpretation of law which is not based on either parties’ submissions,” she said. But Hornby Wendy’s worker, Rose Williams, thinks she’s definitely won the battle. Ms Lendich has until next Wednesday to appeal the decision. She said they are “currently still interpreting the decision and no decision has been made whether to appeal or not.” Ms Lendich said the outcome will have repercussions for many industries, not just hospitality. Mrs Williams went to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment three years ago with the lieu day issue after she had been working at the Hornby restaurant for a year. Wendy’s, which has 23 outlets in New Zealand, including one in Hereford St and in Hornby, has breached two sections of the Holidays Act 2003. Ms Lendich said they have

5

been using the ‘three week’ rule to determine who is entitled to alternative holidays. “... a person who works the same day of the week as the public holiday for the three weeks prior to the public holiday and the public holiday itself is due an alternative day,” she said. Ms Lendich issued a notice to all her employees last week, letting them know about the situation. “However the decision does not mean that everyone will be paid an alternative day for working a public holiday,” the letter concluded.

Unite Union, of which Mrs Williams is a delegate, has estimated it would cost Wendy’s $1.6 million to pay back employees’ leiu days. MBIE senior labour inspector Kim Baldwin found Wendy’s breached section 56 and 60 of the Holidays Act. Section 56 says an alternative holiday must be provided to an employee who works on a public holiday if that day would otherwise have been a working day for them. Section 60 sets out how those employees should be paid for the alternative holiday.

GOOD TIMES THIS

Wendy’s has been ordered to comply with the two sections, conduct a review of its restaurants and keep records of staff contacted, rosters and leave. It has been ordered to give all past and present employees from the Hornby and Dunedin restaurants their alternative holidays, or the equivalent pay since the restaurants were opened. Wendy’s has also been ordered to do the same for all other restaurants across the country backdated to July 1, 2012. Ms Lendich said they thought their interpretation of the law was right and it’s incorrect to say Wendy’s employees have not been receiving alternative holidays. But Mrs Williams believes Wendy’s purposely change their employees shifts so they don’t get lieu days. Ms Lendich said laws about pay need to be black and white and the Holidays Act 2003 needs a “total overhaul.” “Politicians should be more aware of the laws they make around these issues and be totally clear on what the law actually is,” she said. But Mrs Williams said the law doesn’t need changing. She told Western News she’s had a lot of support from coworkers and friends.

„„ By Julia Evans CONCERNS HAVE been raised over publicity of a cycling initiative at Jellie Park Sports and Recreation Centre. Staff at the centre not knowing about the initiative at all, and a lack of advertising, has prompted the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board to ask city council staff investigate urgently. The campaign to get less people driving to Jellie Park in a bid to clear the congested car park means if you cycle five times, you receive free pool entry and a bottle of water. The initiative was first run in February with only a “small to moderate uptake,” city council western area operations manager Martin McGregor said. It was recommended the programme be dropped. But a second campagin, running from now through summer, was called for by the board as it said a longer trial was necessary for a greater uptake. As well as being in warmer months when more people are likely to cycle. It was previously suggested that the scheme would be rolled out across all city council sport and recreation centres.

Chance to reconnect with school before demolition „„ By Julia Evans FORMER BISHOPDALE School pupils have been invited to visit one last time. The school’s 60-year-old buildings are being demolished during the school holidays as work begins on the $4.38 million rebuild. Principal Sue Fisher said anyone who wants to go back, take photos and visit the classrooms is more than welcome. “People from Bishopdale seem to live in this area forever,” she said. She said there is a huge community connection in the suburb, especially as its going through a regeneration with the new library and redevelopment of the mall. Demolishing the first block will begin in January, with the new building beginning construction in March and the rebuild expected to finish late next year. “They [the Ministry of Education] want to have it done in the holidays because it’s not desirable to have children and asbestos in the same space,” Mrs Fisher said. Anyone who wants to go through the school has until December 15. Phone the school on 352 9354 to arrange a time.

Grant for St Peter’s raised to $150,000 „„ By Emily O’Connell A $150,000 grant from the city council has pushed St Peter’s Anglican Church closer to restoration. The Upper Riccarton church, which was consecrated in 1858, was damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The grant, from the Capital Endowment Fund, was approved at city council last Thursday. Riccarton Ward city councillor Vicki Buck made an amendment on the $100,000 grant, increasing it to $150,000. “I’d like to see us give more than $100,000. The loan won’t be helpful as they can’t afford a loan,” she said. Originally, St Peter’s applied for the Heritage Incentive Grant – seeking $500,000 of funding. The application was then deferred as the proposal would have a significant impact on heritage values and key criteria was not met.   Parish reverend Nick Mountfort said they are thrilled with the $150,000 grant. “They [the city council] recognise that St Peter’s is a central hub for a multitude of community and independent groups and provides a home for their

Rev Mountfort said all their community groups are currently in temporary buildings. “This is limiting the capacity of St Peter’s to support the community fully through these

groups as it has done in the past,” he said. Rev Mountfort said St Peter’s has an active fundraising strategy that has been developed to ensure they reach their goal. “At the moment, we are focus-

ing on a Living Stones concept, where we are inviting people to donate towards a block or stone in support of our fundraising campaign,” he said. Donors are then recognised by way of a map in the foyer which will denote the locations of stones and blocks as given by each donor. Rev Mountfort said they are hopeful they will reach their fundraising target next year. Cr Buck said the church was the “foundation stone of Church Corner.” Halswell Ward city councillor Galloway also saw importance in giving more money to the church. “Yes it is a heritage building but more importantly it’s a community building and this community needs this to strengthen and enhance what it does,” she said. The church requires a further $500,000 of funding for their $3.93 million upgrade which will see the building extended, altered and restored. St Peter’s has been paid $1.5 million from insurance. • Donations to St Peter’s Anglican Church can be made at www. stpeterschurch.nz/ donate-now

Stand up and be counted •From page 1 City council staff had strongly advised board chairman Mike Mora not to allow Mr Peters to do so, the reason being because the matter was subject to a hearing. Mr Mora used his discretion to give Mr Peters the opportunity. Mr Peters had previously made a deputation on Denton Park, but said he had new information which he needed to share. During the presentation, Mr Peters said entering into the reclassification process would be a waste of time and money for the city council as the clubs weren’t going to end their leases. The Hornby Rugby Football Club’s lease runs until 2039 and the Hornby Cricket Club’s lease ends in 2053. Mr Peters said its likely the city council has already made up their mind and they’re only going through with public con-

sultation so they “show interest.” He said the group definitely want the facility but not on Denton Park. Mr Peters told the board he’s been requesting figures from the city council on remediation costs at Kyle Park, but they were unable to provide them. City council operations manager neighbourhood and sports park, Al Hardy, told Western News garden areas were fenced off permanently two years ago at Kyle Park as a remediation strategy. “The areas have been mulched to ensure the amenity of the park is retained while containing the risk. The cost of the fencing was $138,237,” he said. Board member Ross McFarlane requested two additional city council resolutions regarding traffic, safety and sports club accomodation to be fast tracked for clarification.

If it’s your normal rosteted day on and you don’t work it, its still a normal day’s wage for you. You do not have to work a stat day if you don’t want to. Employer can not force you. Hospitality is a minefield in regards to hours paid in a lieu day and is usually calculated by average of hours worked over a three-month period, as hours worked are very changable.

Kathryn Macgregor Wendy’s not sticking to the law – tut tut.

Graeme Brown – How the hell did this even make it to

Trish McGregor – Good on her well done.

Debbie Erickson – Yes weakening the unions and people are scared to stand up because they could lose their job which are hard to find these days.

Be fabulous: Encouraging kids to value community shop with us! Sizes 6-22

Halswell Residents’ Association secretary David Hawke talks about the proposed Halswell Skate Parks and what they will mean to the community About two weeks ago there was a news article on how young people in Papanui have been left out by way of recreation facilities where they can socialise on their own terms. The Halswell Residents’ Association has been pushing the same issue in Halswell for 10 years now, and it is tremendous to have the two new skate and recreation facilities at Halswell Domain and Knights Stream within sight. We are fully expecting the city council to complete both facilities well before the end of the council’s financial year in June 2018. As we think about the journey to this point, our key driver has been the need to

BENEFIT: David Hawke thinks the proposed Halswell Domain skate park, which is due to be completed in late April, will have a positive impact on the community.

value our young people within our community. We see the provision of relevant facilities as part of a bigger picture that includes citizenship and community building. As these eight to 12-year-olds grow up, we want them to value the community in which they live and to play their part in decision making. One of the awesome aspects of the Halswell skate park consultation was the active engagement of young people

in the process, to the extent that our association’s role moved to the sidelines. One of the unfortunate realities of our new Christchurch suburbia is the distance between people socially, technologically and by income. These aspects have made worse the always-present gap between young and old. The Halswell skate and recreation parks, and the consultation process so far, gives us hope

that our community can cross these gaps, becoming more trusting and less fearful. Even though people won’t agree all the time, and some will be upset. The alternative is a community, and political process, driven by low participation, lack of trust, and resentment. We see such a chain of events playing out particularly in the United States, and the consequences are dire for everyone and difficult to reverse.

CGHS fall short of sevens crown „„ By Andrew King CHRISTCHURCH GIRLS’ fell short in their quest for a Condors Seven’s title in Auckland beaten 20-5 in the final against Hamilton Girls’ High. The girls had gone through the tournament undefeated until they met Hamilton in the final. Coach Jamie Livingstone said it was great to be the first South Island team to make the finals of the girls section. ​ “Overall, extremely happy to make the final, it’s a massive achievement for a school from Christchurch. Hopefully, we can build on the result and make Christchurch Girls’ High one of the leading rugby programmes in New Zealand,” he said. With the mandate to play an exciting brand of sevens, they kicked off the tournament

RUNNER-UP: Christchurch Girls’ High came second in the Condor Sevens held in Auckland.

New Plymouth Girls’ High advancing to the semi-finals with a 29-17 win. They then met defending champions Auckland’s St Mary’s College 17-0 before falling at the hands of Hamilton.

Grace Brooker was the only CGHS player to make the tournament team. “We have eight girls returning to school next year from this year’s squad so we already have a base to build on,” Livingstone said.

Students Big risk of fire in Antarctica who love science take on competition   FLAME FILES

„„ By Mark Thomas – Specialist fire investigator I’VE JUST got back from Scott Base. Sound like bragging?  Damn right! This was the trip of a lifetime.  Two fire people and one industry expert were invited by Antarctica NZ to examine the fire systems, the building fire separation and the ability for occupants to escape.  Antarctica is cold, we all know that.  But it’s also not only the windiest place on earth but also one of the driest.  So fire is one of the biggest risks.  In the last 10 years, fires at the Russian and Brazilian bases have cost three lives. Others have perished in this way over time. Even Scott Base itself lost a hut to fire in 2009. Antarctica NZ takes fire danger very seriously. Base staff, including engineers, electricians, carpenters, mechanics,

CHILLING OUT: Mark Thomas at Scott Base.

cooks and domestic staff train at Fire and Emergency New Zealand’s Woolston training centre in firefighting with breathing apparatus. Three duty crews ensure a firefighting force is guaranteed available 24/7. They practice regularly. They are well aware any firefighting must be carried out by them early, well before the McMurdo Station fire truck 10min away arrives.

LiQUiD LaUnDroMatS

Speaking of McMurdo, all those at Scott Base were invited there for Thanksgiving dinner. To eat turkey, sample ‘American as mom’ apple and pumpkin pie at a table with four Americans, to share what you had to be thankful for with the group, and then to walk the 4km back to Scott Base at midnight in bright sunshine was, like the whole trip, a privilege. One I’m grateful for.

„„ By Emily O’Connell TWO OF Riccarton High School’s most promising science students have been selected for a national event. Forty senior secondary school students from across the country will be finding answers to challenging questions posed by scientists at Powering Potential next week in Wellington. Kate Stedman, 18, and Wen Qi (Vanessa) Ye, 16, both from Riccarton High School, will be taking part in the event. The students will work alongside a scientist, who will act as their mentor for the three days. They will work in teams of five on a question submitted by their mentor. They will then research, investigate and collaborate to provide recommendations. All costs for the students, including flights, accommodation and social activities, are covered by Royal Society Te Apārangi, Freemasons New Zealand and Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

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

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

25

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 –

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.

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. Further detailed information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are always happy to help!

They are an effective alternative or follow-up treatment to chemically-based ointments.

Keep safe these holidays on the roads You will need to take extra care when travelling in holiday periods because of increased traffic volumes, congestion, tiredness and people driving in unfamiliar environments. Being courteous, remembering to share the road with others and scheduling frequent breaks can help you keep your cool when driving during these times. Follow these tips to ensure your travel is a safe and pleasurable experience for you and others on the road. Why you need to be alert • There are more vehicles on the road – more vehicles means a higher risk of crashes. • Many people are driving on unfamiliar roads. • People are driving long hours and getting fatigued – often early morning or late evening. • Increased stress from factors such as heat, traffic jams, noisy children and general tiredness. • People on holiday may be less vigilant about road safety, eg speeding, driving when tired, not buckling up. • There’s more drink-driving during holiday periods. What you can do to increase your safety You can make a number of choices to increase your safety on your holiday journey. You need to give road use the attention and respect it deserves. Plan ahead • Take a little time to make sure that you

and your vehicle are safe before starting your journey. • Plan your travel to avoid the worst peak traffic periods when many highways become congested. • Allow plenty of time – make the journey part of the holiday. • Schedule regular rest stops. Be alert to changes Often during holiday periods, passing lanes are closed to help reduce congestion and prevent further delays where the traffic merges at the end of lanes. Sometimes alternative routes are suggested. Check our information on highway conditions for real-time updates about route changes, delays, closures and incidents. Drive to the conditions ‘Conditions’ doesn’t just mean the weather. It also includes: • the road you’re on • the traffic conditions • the speed (the speed limit and a ‘safe speed’ may differ) • you, for example are you tired or on medication that affects your driving • your vehicle and load. Watch out for fatigue Long trips are tiring and fatigue can be deadly when you’re driving. Driver fatigue was a factor in 54 road deaths and nearly 1000 injuries last year. Plan to get enough rest beforehand so that you drive fresh. You should plan in advance where you’ll take breaks on your trip. Before you travel

• Have your vehicle checked. Most garages offer safety checks for tyre tread and pressure, lights, brakes, cooling systems and other components. (A well-tuned vehicle is also more fuel efficient, so you’ll also save money on fuel costs. Check that your warrant of fitness and vehicle licence are up to date. • Check that you have a current driver licence. If it’s expired or close to expiry, you’ll need to renew it before starting your journey. When buying or hiring a vehicle, always choose the safest vehicle you can afford. When packing your vehicle, make sure everything is securely stowed. Even small objects can become dangerous missiles in the event of a sudden stop or crash. Check your trailers and caravans Check all towing attachments and make sure the couplings are compatible. Also remember to check the safety chain, trailer lights, tyres and brakes. Remember, if you’re towing a trailer, your maximum speed limit on the open road is 90km/h. Keep left and pull over when it is safe to let other vehicles pass. Load heavy objects evenly over all of the axles. Keep your cool Holiday driving can be frustrating with busy roads, often slower sightseeing travellers, stifling heat in summer and icy surfaces in winter. Here are some simple and easy ways to stay calm and stay in

control: • Be courteous – let others merge into traffic and indicate before turning or changing lanes. • Keep left unless passing. • If you’re a slower driver, pull over when you can to let others pass. • Be patient and don’t be provoked by other drivers’ aggressive behaviour. • Remember that trucks and towing vehicles have lower speed limits. Wait for a passing lane or until you can see clear road ahead of you and enough space to overtake safely. • Keep an eye out for cyclists and other road users. Give them plenty of space. • Watch out for horses on back country roads. Buckle up Don’t let your family holiday be marred by tragedy simply because someone didn’t buckle up. If you’re the driver, you are legally responsible for making sure all passengers under the age of 15 are securely restrained with either a safety belt or child restraint. Children under seven must be properly restrained by an approved child restraint suitable to their size and weight.
