Outrage at plan to close Woolston PostShop

Woolston business owners and residents are outraged at plans to close the area’s PostShop. Woolston Auto Surgery owner Roydon Smart said it seemed “crazy” to close the Ferry Rd shop because it served a lot of people. “The Woolston PostShop is so busy, often its queued out onto the footpath.” Earlier this month, New Zealand Post revealed plans to expand postal and banking services in Ferrymead, which will see the Woolston branch close. NZ Post is looking for a tenant to fill the PostShop building to

run the postal services, but people wanting to use banking services and to pay bills will have to travel to Ferrymead or Eastgate. Mr Smart has been in contact with Kiwibank and NZ Post to outline his concerns and has been handing out pamphlets to local business owners and residents to make them aware of what is happening. “I’ve had a business here since 1979, now they are moving the post office; always used this one, now I’ll have to drive to do my banking, because with money you have to take it to the bank. It’s a super busy post office, it all adds up to be a stupid, selfish decision.” •Turn to page 6

Taking the kids to footy a good choice

Businesses get parking restrictions

Canterbury rugby’s popular Take a Kid to Footy ticket deal is back for the 2015 ITM Cup season thanks to new sponsor, Fresh Choice. Fresh Choice will be the official naming rights sponsor for Take a Kid to Footy for at least the next three years. Take a Kid to Footy tickets are $14 (plus service fee) for one adult and one child. Each additional child is $5.50 each. There are dedicated Take a Kid to Footy seating areas at AMI Stadium and children get a free goody bag filled with snacks, a drink and a collectable for each Canterbury home game. Tickets will go on public sale for the ITM Cup on Monday for individual games. Canterbury’s first home game is against Counties Manukau on Sunday, August 23 (4.35pm). Canterbury Rugby chief executive Hamish Riach said the union is delighted to have a successful and locally-focused brand like Fresh Choice on board. “Take a Kid to Footy is such an important product for us because it provides an affordable way for families to get along to the Canterbury games, and FreshChoice is a

Two more Sydenham businesses will have parking restrictions installed outside their premises. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board approved the proposals at its meeting on Friday. Solas Propellers applied for P10 restrictions outside its Sandyford St premises, and The Good Girls Property Management also applied for P10 restrictions on Kingsley St. The restrictions would fit about two cars in each. All parking outside both businesses had been unrestricted with parking spaces often occupied by vehicles owned by employees working nearby. The reasoning behind the applications was because shop customers had difficulties finding a car park. In March, the Southern View reported there was a catch 22 over parking in Sydenham after Realcold, BBQs Direct and Trents Wholesale had parking restrictions approved. The following month, The Salvation Army and Tesa Electricals also had restrictions approved. Sydenham Quarter Incorporated secretary Lorraine Thompson told the Southern View parking was bound to dry up if restrictions continued to be installed. “It’s a catch 22, because you need customers, but you need staff to be able to get in as well,” she said.

SUPPORT: Fresh Choice is the sponsor of Take a Kid to Footy for the next three years.

great fit,” he said. “With three afternoon home games this season we expect Take a Kid to Footy tickets to be in high demand, so it will be great to see lots of families coming along to support their team and we are grateful to FreshChoice for helping to make that possible.” Fresh Choice has three Christchurch stores at Barrington, Merivale and Park-

lands. Parklands owner Julian Brown said they are proud to be supporting an initiative that is aimed at making rugby affordable and fun for its youngest fans. “This has been such a successful local initiative, making it easier for Canterbury families to get along to the game, and we are pleased to be able to help ensure that it continues.”

Garden plans for reserve BY BRIDGET RUTHERFORD An underutilised Sydenham reserve could be converted into a garden. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board has been looking into different uses for Carlyle Reserve, on the corner of Carlyle and Colombo Sts. The community board’s latest idea is to turn it into either a sustainable, edible or rain garden. The city council was looking at selling the reserve as part of the Sydenham Master Plan, because it was deemed surplus to requirements. But the community board had concerns that if it was sold, it could be turned into something that might not positively reflect Sydenham. Plans to sell the reserve went to full council back in March, but city councillors wanted to see other options looked at for its use. The community board has voted to request holding a workshop with city council staff on the possibility of converting the site into some sort of garden. But Cr Tim Scandrett voted against the plan because he wanted some sort of public consultation on what Carlyle Reserve could be used for. He said the Sydenham Master Plan was created by the community and the city council, and it needed to be taken into account.


▌IN ▌ BRIEF New kerb outside hospital New kerbing will be installed outside Hillmorton Hospital, Annex Rd, after concerns were raised about safety. There is currently no kerb and channel which causes some surface flooding and ice in the winter. Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board chairman Paul McMahon said the board is just waiting to hear when the work will be done. “It’s not safe.”

Powhiri for principal

St Anne’s Catholic School, Woolston, will welcome its new principal, Dallas Wichman, with a powhiri this morning. Mr Wichman replaces Peter Callanan, who retired at the end of last year.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN “I voted against it because I thought we need a discussion with the community.” He said the ideas needed to come from the community rather than the community board. “It was being driven the wrong way round, I’m really disappointed.” He would be for selling the land if the money was re-invested into Sydenham. The land was originally

purchased by the city council in 2001 to be used as a neighbourhood reserve. Part of the Sydenham Master Plan suggested the reserve be sold but a strip along the Colombo St frontage could be retained to create a northern “gateway” into Sydenham with signage, a sculpture, trees and landscaping. Community board chairman Paul McMahon said the board was keen to hear any ideas from

the community on what the space could be used for. “We’re just interested in looking at what options are available.” He said the community board wanted to find the best use for the public space. “At the moment it’s not really fit for purpose.” The community board is waiting to hear back about the workshop.

Wastewater system repairs Goldsmith Pl, Sydenham, remains closed this week as work continues to repair wastewater systems. The work is expected to be complete by August 3. There are on-street parking restrictions, and access for residents will be maintained where possible but there will be times when residents will have to park on Hastings St. Pedestrian access will be maintained on one side of the road at all times.

Hoon Hay Outrage at plan to close Woolston PostShop man to live the dream A Hoon Hay man has been given a scholarship to embark on an Outward Bound adventure in the Marlborough Sounds. Richard Winchester, 33, was among four people from around the country to win Kathmandu’s annual ‘Live the Dream’ Outward Bound scholarships. He will head away on the week-long discovery course in Anikiwa in November. The scholarship programme aims to provide more New Zealanders with the opportunity to embark on a journey of self-discovery by completing the course, and has been running since 1995. Mr Winchester (above) was selected from hundreds of New Zealanders who applied. He said when the phone call came it felt like a dream. “I’m not sure that it has sunk in yet. I danced around the house for a good week or so after the phone call and have probably read the email a million times making sure that I hadn’t dreamt it.” He is looking forward to the social challenges of working with strangers to achieve and excel in the various activities. “I can be quite reserved in new company so pushing myself to interact will be exciting. To me it’s about giving things a go, discovering and challenging limits and constantly asking the question ‘Why not?’ when faced with opportunity or challenge.”

•From page 1 He said a lot of people in the area were elderly and did not drive or use internet banking, so getting to Ferrymead would be difficult. He could understand the closure if the PostShop was not doing well, but that did not seem to be the case. Hargood St resident Bebe Baker has been using the PostShop since 1956. The 91-year-old walks to the shop twice a week and will find it difficult to do her banking when the shop closes. “It’s still a very busy post office. Now I’ll have to get two taxis weekly to the next post office, which could be Eastgate. I’ll have to pay for them I suppose.” Ziggs Hair and Body Shop owner Debra Radovonich has

ANGRY: Woolston resident Bebe Baker, and business owners Roydon Smart and Debra Radovonich say the Woolston PostShop is always busy, and are angry with plans to close it. PHOTO: FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

been based on Ferry Rd for 36 years and said the plan was “dreadful”. “How are the elderly people going to go there [Ferrymead], are they going to get a taxi? That’s not fair,’’ she said.

The shop serviced people from Mt Pleasant, Sumner, Heathcote Valley and Lyttelton, she said. “I think it’s absolutely ludicrous.” But an NZ Post spokesman said the changes came after it

reviewed where and how people were using the services. “The decision to retain postal services at Woolston and the Kiwibank ATM and offer new banking services at Ferrymead and St Martins reflected where locals are accessing services.” He said more than 80 per cent of customers used the shop for postal or bill pay services, so it would focus on postal. There is no set time frame for when the changes will be made. Port Hills Labour MP Ruth Dyson said it was a viable business with a lot of customer support yet it was still being closed. “There’s a lot of development here and yet we’re seeing the demise of quite a core agency.” People with concerns about the plans can phone 0800 501 501.

UNPLEASANT: Mainland Crematorium, Sydenham, is in the spotlight again with two complaints received about the smell and smoke coming from the facility within a week. This photo was taken of the Hawdon St facility, on July 1 at 3.35pm, the day one of the complaints was made. Environment Canterbury spokeswoman Felicity Price said the other complaint was received on June 24. “Neither complaint was substantiated, however, we did follow- up with the owner who explained that the cremation furnace is due to be serviced soon.” ECan has requested a copy of the service report from the crematorium to ensure everything is as it should be, she said. The crematorium was met with strong opposition from Sydenham business owners when it gained consent in 2011. The following year, a foulsmelling black smoke billowed out of the chimney after the cremation of a 230kg body went wrong.

Ferrymead Medical Centre


moves to permanent premises

The well-established Ferrymead Medical Centre is now permanently located in its new, modern premises in Ferrymead Central on Ferry Road.

stablished in 1997 in a complex further east on Ferry Rd by principal doctor Brendan Smith, the practice has been providing medical and health services for local residents for 18 years. Following the February 2011 earthquake, the medical centre had to move out of the original premises, after which they were forced to move between several temporary premises. Dr Smith says the staff are extremely grateful for the support and understanding of the patients and organisations the medical centre works with. “We’ve finally found a permanent home that suits our needs and allows us to grow,” he says. “The staff have been fantastic in trying times and difficult circumstances and we all appreciate that this has been difficult for everyone in our community, especially our patients.” The 2011 earthquake really hastened what would have been inevitable for the Ferrymead Medical Centre, Dr Smith says. “Apart from the quake issues, the practice had continued to grow and we were constrained by space in the original building,

so we would have needed to go somewhere else, though we were restricted by what’s available in the area.” Dr Smith and his fellow practitioners, Dr Gort Stephan and Dr Charlotte Cooper, are thrilled with their new, much more spacious medical centre, where they have now been joined by Dr Jo Battye. The four doctors provide a full complement of GP services for their patients, from babies and children through to growing families and the elderly. Services include consultations, minor surgery and general advice on Ferrymead Medical Centre Pegasus Post staying healthy. A keyRob aspect of the practice is visiting Davison Rachel rest homes, and for Dr Smith, this is a particular area of RD8778 interest as he believes the over-65 age group is an underappreciated area in health care. The practice has grown as new residents have moved into the area, while there are also a number of former patients who moved away, but travel across town to continue seeing the doctors they know at the Ferrymead Medical Centre. The doctors welcome new patients from right around the eastern suburbs, Dr

The growth of the practice and the move to more spacious premises has also meant the nursing capability is being expanded at the Ferrymead Medical Centre. Nurses Nicci Byrne and Angela Trist are both on leave at present, and two new nurses, Sarah Clarke and Judi Foster, have joined the practice over the last few weeks.

Conversations with spirit gets Iconic race finish nomination for book awards stays at pier

Addington clergyman Michael Cocks is a finalist in this year’s Mind Body Spirit Literary Awards. Rev. Cocks’ (right) book, Into The Wider Realm, is about his conversations with the spirit of Stephen the Martyr over a period of eight years. He is one of three Canterbury finalists, joining Castle Hill documentary maker and monk, Greg Hopkinson for his work Boundless: A Wayward Entrepreneur’s Search for Peace, and retired SumnerRedcliffs Anglican minister, Ron Hay for his book, Finding The Forgotten God. Greymouth’s Thomas M Fairs is also a finalist for his book, In Human Terms, about the imbalance man has in its relationship with the material world and organic life. They are four of 11 finalists, competing against a range of writers including a university professor, a methamphetamine survivor and a mental health commissioner for a $20,000 prize pool, thanks to a bequest from the late businessman, Ashton Wylie. Mind Body Spirit Literary Awards director Tim Eddington said the finalists’ works are remarkable stories written by people from all walks of life and from all over New Zealand. “The finalists make for fascinatNEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf 1 ing and inspiring reading and cover a wide range of topics: A

woman tells her story of overcoming methamphetamine addiction, the Pacifica concept of ‘aroha atu aroha mai’ being fundamental to well-being and health is examined, the evolution of mysticism is revealed and there’s a book from a university professor describing ways in which we can re-wire our brains to be less self-centred.” Mr Eddington said this year’s entries were of a very high standard. “These finalists demonstrate the best writing since the awards’ inception 12 years ago.” The awards are unique in the country for their encouragement of writing in the mind, body, spirit genre. There are two judging categories: Best book and best unpublished manuscript. Rev. Cocks, 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m. Rev. Hay, Greg Hopkinson and

BY KYLE KNOWLES New Brighton will again be home to the finish line of the Coast to Coast in 2016 and beyond. This year was the first time the famous race finished in New Brighton after previously ending in Sumner. The finish line will be set up outside the New Brighton Library by the pier on the weekend of February 12, 2016. Organisers have also locked in New Brighton past 2016 but could not confirm for how many years. New Brighton Business and Landowners Association manager Paul Zaanen said it was “wicked.” Mr Zaanen was a big part of this year’s event, he was the transition manager at the finish line. He said it was a big part of the summer events calendar for the suburb and to have it confirmed the Coast to Coast was returning was a massive boost. “The events calendar we’re working on at the moment is fantastic. New Brighton is the place to be and is the new events centre outside of the


city centre. It’s exciting to have so many events coming to New Brighton and obviously a lot of local ones are going gangbusters too. So to have more events is good.” Mr Zaanen said the event worked well in New Brighton as both the event and the suburb are going through a rejuvenation process. “That’s such a big part of it, the vision of rejuvenation for New Brighton, and the Coast to Coast, with both in a rejuvenating process. There is a lot of energy and effort in doing both and that’s bloody exciting.” There are already plans to improve the finish line experience but details on those improvements were not available. Entries are already open for next year’s Coast to Coast with prizes up for grabs for people who enter before July 31 including a $5000 sponsorship package. Organisers have also added a school category with the minimum age being lowered to 14. The new category is a team event for three people.

Share your thoughts on the Victoria Square Draft Restoration Plan The development of the Victoria Square Draft Restoration Plan was guided by community feedback received earlier this year. Feedback demonstrated a strong community desire to retain and maintain Victoria Square’s existing character and features. There was also support for additional features to complement the community’s preferred uses for Victoria Square, which included relaxing, enjoying the environment, pedestrian access to and from the city, meeting friends and whānau, and acknowledging the past.

Redcliffs businesses disrupted by roadworks BY FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Buses face tight turn on hill road BY FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

The narrow road in Mt Pleasant, known as Billys Track, has temporarily turned into a highway for 12m x 3m buses while St Andrews Hill Rd is being worked on. Roadworks on St Andrews Hill Rd have caused disruptions to the regular 140 route, diverting buses up Mt Pleasant Rd, and onto the tight, blind corner of Billys Track, causing buses to use both lanes while turning. Environment Canterbury said the roadworks would be finished as soon as they could be. “We are advised that the road closure will be in place until August 28.”

Although this is already two months after the originally planned finish date of June 22. The timetable for the route has seen 140 route buses meet on Billys Track in the past, if either is late or early. This causes the bus travelling downhill to stop suddenly and then having to reverse back to the top of Billys Track so the uphill bus can squeeze past, endangering not only the bus drivers and their passengers, but also any cars or pedestrians on the road as well. ECan said: “Without this option, it would take too long to do the detour and this would compromise the schedule. Previously we have opted to use Billys track without issue.”

STRUGGLING: Redcliffs shop Morgan & Page has been struggling ever since repairs started along the Main Rd (inset). turn in foot traffic especially. Fortunately we have loyal customers that still come . . . a lot of people are unaware about the car park we have around the back; so not many vehicles (stop) either,” Mr Sayer said. The roadworks stretch from the petrol station all the way past Barnett Park, to the corner of Main and Bay View Rds; causing problems for outgoing Sumner and Redcliffs traffic in the mornings, and for their return at night. Although both store owners said that they understand why

the process is taking so long, Mrs Wylie has really struggled to financially keep her business afloat, and herself motivated. “It’s the loss in turnover (that’s most frustrating) . . . my work is my passion. I enjoy the creative side, but when it’s a struggle, you sometimes lose that passion.” Mr Sayer still loves being a part of a great community where things will get better. “We love the area; the customers are great, we have very loyal customers. We know them, and they know us.”

Greater Christchurch Earthquake Recovery: Transition to Regeneration Share your views on the Draft Transition Recovery Plan. The Draft Plan provides context for the transition of the Government’s role in greater Christchurch’s recovery. It includes proposals for new recovery legislation, a set of new recovery arrangements for the central city, and an approach for reporting on priority recovery issues. It also sets out the Government’s decisions on the transfer of recovery responsibilities to other central government agencies. This is your opportunity to provide written comments on the Draft Plan.

DANGEROUS: A 140 bus takes up both lanes of Billys Track during a trip. It won’t return to its normal route for at least another eight weeks. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Construction along Main Rd, Redcliffs, is forcing local business owners to battle for survival. Redcliffs business owners will be hoping that Fulton Hogan keeps its word in respect to the deadline for the roadworks in four weeks time, and the opening of the new supermarket on October 1, because some can’t hold on much longer. Women’s wear store Morgan & Page owner Ingrid Wylie said that since 2011 it’s been very tough going, some days she wonders why she even opens her shop. “The first couple of months after we re-opened (in 2011) were really good; but now people can’t get to us, some days it’s not worth turning on the lights, and wasting the power.” Mrs Wylie said. The biggest frustration for Mrs Wylie is the total lack of accessibility to her store. “The parking that we have got – the workmen are parking there; and there’s a bus stop out front, so there’s nowhere to park.” Redcliffs Pharmacy owner Darryl Sayer was concerned about people’s access to the pharmacy, with cones blocking cars from parking close to his store. “We have noticed a big down-

hat’s why our smoked salmon is different,” he says. “It’s all in the preparation, and it’s all about time and patience. It’s done in the old style way, just like traditional cheese makers take their time to do it well.” The Holy Smoke method of small batch smoking with simple manuka wood and salt ensures a moist product with infused flavour, Henk explains. “Using our custom-made small batch smokers from the United States, we are able to keep full control of both the temperature

A variety of products are made and they include cold, smoked, hand-sliced salmon; hot smoked or roasted salmon; hot smoked salmon sausages, all of which can be eaten warm or cold; and gravlax, which is a herbtopped, marinated, hand-sliced salmon.

Bridge club ready Award for work in Lyttelton to celebrate 40 years The Mt Pleasant Bridge Club celebrates 40 years of friendly, fun and competitive bridge next month. The club will have an anniversary lunch on August 7, and is inviting present and past members to attend. Those interested in attending can phone president Kay Thomas on 384 9113 to get accurate numbers for catering. The club was founded in 1975 by Wynette Griffiths as The Mount Pleasant Non-Smoking Bridge Club. Mrs Griffiths enjoyed bridge but was put off by the smokefilled atmosphere of most clubs, so started one of the first nonsmoking clubs in New Zealand. It was a success from the beginning, with more than 40 turning up to the inaugural meeting, and in five years a membership of nearly 200. And several of those at the first meeting are still playing today. Initially the club played at the Mt Pleasant Community Centre, but has for many years used the Mount Pleasant Yacht Club’s room alongside the estuary. However, with the Ferrymead/ Heathcote bridge building, and the considerable disruption since the earthquakes, access has been difficult and player numbers have been down.


KEEN: Mt Pleasant Bridge Club life members Chris Kirkland, Corrie Vermey, Raylene Hunter and Julie Smythe. Wynette Griffiths is also a life member. Now that much of the work has been completed, the club looks forward to many more years of bridge, and invites players of all abilities to join. Members play on Wednesday nights, and Friday afternoons. Those interested in joining can phone Hilary or Keith on 366 4433. Results from recent competitions:

May Wednesday: Two night match, winners Corrie Vermey and Keith Guthrie. May Friday: Three-partner match, winner Raylene Hunter. June Wednesday: Two-night match, winners Frances McDowell and Raylene Hunter. June Friday: Two-day match, winners Billie Nicholls and Jan Hobson.

Margaret Jefferies has been recognised for her work in Lyttelton. The Project Lyttelton chairwoman was presented with a certificate by the Tindall Foundation in Auckland recently. Ms Jefferies along with two other members of Project Lyttelton were flown up to Auckland for the day, with accommodation, transport and flights all paid for by the Tindall Foundation. Ms Jefferies was thrilled with the award. “It was really nice to hear what they were saying about us, they appreciate how we work; we see them as a relationship not just for money, it’s a genuine relationship. We like to have their opinion on things, even if funding isn’t involved.” At the ceremony, recipients gave a minute speech about why they do what they do; Ms Jefferies’ speech was on love for the community. “I focused on how do we make decisions that are out of love, rather than anxiety? It’s important to us, that love is a factor in our projects.” Project Lyttelton help to make Lyttelton into a vibrant, sustainable society. Ms Jefferies prefers

GRASSROOTS SPORT HELPING OUT: Linwood College’s Alisha Ungerboek, Lucy Brown, Hinemoana Foster,Dayton Rapana, Hadassah Cope with ANZ’s Nathan Harman in the centre.

New netball gear for Linwood College

Linwood College scored big this season, with new gear for the school’s growing number of netball players thanks to the ANZ netball grant scheme. Teacher in charge of netball, Courtney Flay, says the grant, which includes 20 balls, will be a big help for the school’s four new netball teams. “Netball was non-existent when I took over the project in 2014. That year, we started the season with one team and now, after lots of hard work, we’ve got five. “We’re really excited that the sport is growing so quickly but it’s tough to keep up with the demand for new gear. These new netballs will really help the players get the most out of trainings.” This year, ANZ is awarding a total of $100,000 in netball grants to help clubs, schools, social teams and fans achieve their dreams.   ANZ branch manager Nathan Harman says the programme was

launched in 2012 to support fans and help netballers get to the next level in the game. “Netball is one of the country’s most popular sports with tens of thousands of players at schools, clubs and social teams across the country. “It’s about inspiring players to go further. This might involve kitting out a team with new gear or uniforms, helping players get to an ANZ Championship match to see the action up close this season, or even getting a few professionals to visit their school or club to host a training session – that’s bound to be a life-changing experience for some of our future netballing stars. “We’re really happy to help Linwood College to provide enough gear for its growing number of netball players.” Applications to the ANZ Netball Grant Scheme are now closed. Winners can be viewed at anzcourtside.co.nz.

Family affair on court

Two mothers were able to teach their daughters a lesson on the basketball court. Halswell players, Marinda Van Vuuren and Fionna Chapman came up against their daughters Natasha Van Vuuren, and Annalia Chapman who were playing for Minties in a premier grade game at Cowles Stadium. Halswell won 54-47. Halswell player, Marinda van Vuuren said: “We beat them (Minties). But it was a very close game. I don’t think I ended up marking Natasha because she didn’t want to mark me. We only get competitive when it comes to sports, never at home. We’ve got a very friendly rivalry.” Fionna Chapman was also playing for Halswell alongside her other daughter Aleni, as well as playing against her daughter Annalia. The Halswell Women’s Premier team last tasted success winning the first round Patron’s trophy in 2013, while it last won the Championship in the 1993 to 1995 seasons. The Halswell basketball club is one of the oldest single sex clubs in the Canterbury competition. The club was formed back in 1969, and the founding members were Helen Lightfoot, Dianne Burrowes, Alice Whittaker, Francie Stuart and the Halswell

Ronald McDonald’s new board member


Extreme cold causes problems BY MARK THOMAS - FIRE RISK MANAGEMENT OFFICER The extreme frosts of the last week have resulted in a number of calls to properties where hot water cylinders have leaked and caused flooding in the building or where sprinkler systems have frozen solid and leaked. I can certainly understand, turning the hot water tap on in the kitchen at home first thing in the morning has resulted in slushy ice in the sink. We were fortunate enough though not to have our pipes freeze solid enough to split. There were also a number of car crashes caused by black ice. If it looks wet at all on those -5 deg C mornings then the road is almost certainly frozen solid. We all need to drive accordingly. It’s probably therefore a good time to mention the metre/heater rule again. This is a mantra the Fire Service has invented to give a rule of thumb about anything combustible near to something that could set it on fire. The drying of clothing in front of a fireplace or heater is fine except for the human tendency to want things to happen quickly causes us to place the damp clothes too close. We like to see the steam rise. Then the phone goes, or tea needs to be cooked or the kids do what kids do and attract our attention. Placed closer than a metre that steam will rise until no moisture is left. The clothing will keep on heating. It might scorch. It might ignite. The metre/heater rule simply saves this from happening.


HELPING HAND: The Westpac Resuce Helicopter in action.

$250,000 raised for Canty rescue chopper This year’s Westpac Chopper Appeal has raised more than $250,000 for Canterbury’s rescue helicopter. This is part of $1.5m raised across the country. All donations from the Westpac Chopper Appeal are distributed back to the 16 rescue helicopter services across the country, meaning money raised locally, stays local. Westpac’s director of corporate affairs, Sue Foley, said the total raised is an outstanding effort. “New Zealanders have once again shown their support rallying behind their local rescue

helicopters,” said Ms Foley. “We’d like to thank all of those who generously dug deep and donated, along with everyone who was involved in the fundraising events in their communities. “The helicopters provide such a vital service that saves lives on a daily basis. It’s important for us to continue to play our part and raise awareness as well as much-needed funds to keep them in the air.” Westpac employees were also crucial to the success of this year’s result with fundraising initiatives organised around the country as well as hitting the streets to collect $128,000 on the nationwide Chopper Street

Appeal day. Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust chairman, Murray Weakley, said: “We are continually overwhelmed by the generosity of locals and could not be prouder to be part of this community. We would like to thank every person and group who gave as well as the support from Westpac through the chopper appeal every year. Every donation makes a big difference to help us keep doing what we do and we are very grateful.” Donations are welcome throughout the year and can be made at www.chopperappeal. co.nz or any Westpac branch.

A Christchurch lawyer has been appointed as the newest member of the Ronald McDonald House South Island’s board table. Julie Hands has been bestowed the Institute of Directors’ First Steps in Governance Award, giving her an internship position on the charity’s board. Institute of Directors’ Canterbury branch chair Janice Fredric said the judges were impressed by Ms Hands’ ambition, focus and leadership potential. “Julie is an exceptional young woman who has already taken on a range of leadership roles in both her career and the community. Her breadth of skill and empathy for the cause will make her a real asset to the Ronald McDonald House South Island board.” Ms Hands, a resource management and commercial solicitor for Duncan Cotterill, says the award is an honour. “The board seems as though it has a great dynamic and there’s a lot of diverse knowledge and experience there. I’m excited to learn from them and hope this will be the first step in a long governance career.” Ms Hands will also receive mentoring from an experienced director, $810 toward Institute of Directors’ professional development courses, and a one-year membership of the Institute of Directors.

New diabetes exercise group starts in Christchurch


ype 2 diabetes is becoming a major health issue for New Zealand, with obesity recognised as one of its most preventable causes. According to a Diabetes NZ spokeswoman, “While there is no silver bullet, we do know we can prevent obesity through lifestyle and exercise.” For their part, the team at Physical Sense Gym & Physio also recognise that a healthy diet and regular exercise are the two key factors underpinning successful weight loss and have developed a programme specially designed for diabetes clients. It is proving popular with people across a wide age range (20 to 70), including many who are overweight or severely obese.   The programme comprises a circuit that allows the clients to do the exercises at their own pace, without any pressure to keep up, combined with advice from the community diabetes team who support them through the necessary changes to their food habits. “The advantage for these clients is that we are a normal public gym, so our diabetes clients are mixing with people who don’t have health conditions,” team member Ietje van Stolk says. “And by coming to the gym, our diabetes clients are getting out of the house and are meeting other people including people with the same issues and weight problems as they have, and being physically active is very motivating. They encourage each other and there is plenty of fun and humour between themselves and with the instructors, who are there to lean on and help everyone reach their goals.” Medical research shows participation in regular exercise gets the heart rate up, helps strengthen muscles, improves blood glucose control and can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes, Ietje points out. It also positively affects lipids and blood pressure, reduces the risk of cardiovascular events and improves quality of life. Physical Sense Gym & Physio has had many positive comments


Physical Sense Gym & Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham from clients about the programme. One, who goes six times a week, says he loves having somewhere to go and hates the days he is not going to the gym. Another says, “It’s the only thing I have for me, and I have improved my eating habits.” Others have found walking easier and have increased energy and fitness. To encourage those on limited income, the first four sessions are free, and if clients have WINZ support the programme usually remains free, Ietje says. Attending the gym is as easy as a bus ride which stops right at the front door. There is also plenty of parking available should you choose to drive. Physical Sense Gym & Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. Phone 377 2577.

Unpaid, except for the smiles and gratitude expressed in many customs and languages, their sterling work was recognised with a party of thanks held at Christchurch Airport’s new cinema. Among the company of Airport Ambassadors are 16 who have been shining the light of true direction and guidance since the very beginning of the Ambassador Programme.

Creating smiles for cancer patients GL Health Cancer has the ability to rob those affected of more than their physical health. “I am a ‘people person’ with an outgoing personality. Well, I used to be. When I was diagnosed with cancer, my demeanour changed, and it wasn’t long before my treatment became a lonely and nerveracking journey,” says Miretta, a Look Good Feel Better workshop participant. That’s why Look Good Feel Better exists. The national charity supports Kiwis at a time when they need it most, by providing an opportunity for participants to claim back their personality beyond being a cancer patient - and learn practical tools to combat the ongoing visual and emotional effects of therapy. “It truly was a morale-boosting makeover, I felt like one of the group instead of a patient. It boosted and improved my selfesteem – and felt so darn good!” Miretta says. “It’s often the first time many women will be seen by others without their wig or be touched by a person that isn’t doing so for medical purposes,” Clare O’Higgins, Look Good Feel Better’s general manager, says. “I rarely let people get close, other than those who are dear to me, but the women there all

1 in 2 people deficient in vitamin B12


merging research has shown as many as 50 per cent of older adults and as many as 25 per cent of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and repair and prevention of homocysteine - a serious cardiovascular risk factor that is known to cause damage and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a 34 per cent 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

60s who were low in B12. The reason so many people lack B12 seems to be due to our body’s inability to absorb it as we age, as the digestive system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux medication and other drugs further reduce B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the mouth and thru bypassing the digestive tract have been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in the body. Further info 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!

Tiny Tots Nursery and Preschool Family business looking after our community


iny Tots Nursery and Preschool is a privately-owned and familyoperated centre. We provide a safe and secure environment in which children can learn, create and grow to the best of their abilities. Teachers observe the children through their play, and then incorporate those interests into an individual programme. This helps the children to extend on their learning and enhances their development for the future.

Tiny Tots has an open plan environment both indoors and out, and seeks to provide high quality equipment, resources and facilities to support your child’s learning and development. We like to encourage parents to spend time with their children in the centre to help them settle in, and to share experiences together and to find out how the centre operates during the day. Enquiries welcome through a visit at 148 England St, Linwood, or phone 389 6851.

Start kids young at Lindisfarne


indisfarne was established in 1987 and is a small privately run nursery school. The separate nursery building caters for up to 14 babies, and the preschool is licensed for up to 36 children. We pride ourselves on providing as much a home-like environment as possible for all of the children who attend Lindisfarne. Our team consists of all trained and registered teachers, a teacher’s aide, a teaching assistant, and a cook and cleaner. We pride ourselves on being a multicultural centre, both through the nationalities of the children who attend and the nationalities of our teaching staff. The large private play area allows the children to engage in lots of physical activities as well as imaginative play. Our on-site primary school teacher ensures all children are well prepared to start primary school.

NEED CHILDCARE? • Fully qualified, registered and experienced teachers • Free ECE and subsidies available • Quality programmes and care for your child’s individual needs to reach their full potential.

It’s never too late for music


hen Robert Perks MBE founded the Christchurch School of Music in 1955, he was very much focused on providing quality music education to primary-aged students, but we know he’d be pleased to see that CSM now caters for students aged from two to 92. Adults of all ages and abilities are now an integral part of the CSM community and our varied programmes offer something for everyone. Many of our adult students enjoy weekly instrumental, theory or vocal lessons, but we also offer fortnightly options or blocks

of lessons to cater for students whose lives are too busy to cope with a weekly lesson. At CSM, we encourage our students to play in an orchestra or ensemble as soon as they feel ready. Playing with others is great fun and helps students to feel a part of our fabulous musical community. Whether you’re an absolute beginner or an experienced player, CSM can offer you the chance to play in an orchestra, band or one of our many ensembles. Visit www.csm.org.nz, or phone the office on 366 1711 to find out what CSM can offer you.

Get rid of dampness in your house

Stack Electrical

Now with the colder and wetter weather on its way, homeowners are focusing on ways to make their homes comfortable, warm and healthy for their families throughout winter.


ising damp is an issue that affects many of our older properties which suffer from poor, or no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many people have relocated to homes that suffer from rising damp, which can be associated with health problems.

Moulds can produce various allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and very young are especially vulnerable. Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally owned and operated firm. The team understands the problems caused by rising damp and are there to help. They will come to your damp home and pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete under your timber floored home.

An unexpected benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed recently is that many owners of properties which had underfloor foam concrete installed, reported that it also provided protection against
