Demand for action over stalled community centre BY ANDREW KING

Four years on and no real plan in place, community leaders are demanding action on the stalled St Albans Community Centre. It has been four years since the St Albans Resource Centre was demolished and a transitional facility run by the St Albans Residents Association put in its place on Colombo St. In June, the city council set aside $3.2 million in the Long Term Plan, for the new centre. Shirley-Papanui Community Board chairman Mike Davidson said the board had to take charge of the situation to move the project ahead. He is forming a working party to “drive” the project. Community board members, SARA, the local business society and St Albans School will be on the working party, he said. “We are a little bit annoyed at the slowness so we are going to really drive this now. • Turn to page 3 Have your say Is the rebuild of the St Albans Community Centre taking too long?

OUR JERRY LEE Bridge opening soon a true survivor This is a great story of one very gutsy, tough, utterly loveable German Shepherd pup called “ Jerry Lee”. At just 17 months of age we have seen Jerry Lee over 30 times since his first visit for pup vaccinations. Luckily for us he’s a big softy and has never put up a fight to all our palpating and needle pricking. Occasionally to get us back he rips out the IV catheter in his leg and looks quite pleased with himself. Jerry Lee first presented with weight loss and inappetance over a year ago as a pup. He just was never fussed on eating – no food really tickled his fancy and he was offered the best premium foods on the market and lots of variety. He wasn’t growing as he should have for his age and he often seemed really lethargic and lacking in energy. He had diarrhea and vomiting intermittently, salivating often, but what really concerned his owners was that as a pup he just didn’t have the energy he should of had. He has been blood tested many times, xrays have been taken of his gut and Catherine has performed ultrasounds. There isn’t many tests Jerry lee hasn’t had. No abnormalities were really detected but we all knew he wasn’t right. Many times we treated Jerry Lee with lower fat intestinal moist food, occasional antibiotics, drugs to help with nausea and vomiting, pain medications and we kept his worming up to date. He’d come right initially but before long we’d see him back just flat and listless and basically anorexic. He was a real worry to his owners and to us.

In his wee short life he’s had three anaesthetics and come through them brilliantly. Jerry Lee never complains and honestly is the perfect patient to treat. He’s been under the knife to be neutered, he then had an emergency dash to the afterhours clinic as he suddenly developed a twisted stomach and spleen. Then most

recently I performed exploratory surgery to inspect his stomach, small and large intestines all his abdominal organs, biopsying in particular many sections of stomach, bowel, pancreas and liver. This is where finally we got a diagnosis of Inflammatory Bowell Disease – aptly called Eosinophilic, Lymphoplasmacytic, diffuse IBD!!! He’s a true battler and at least we have a diagnosis now. Treatment is complicated, lengthy, costly and it really places an emotional strain on everyone in the family as its very hard seeing your loved pet (and a baby at that), go through at times pain and discomfort. To be hit with IBD as a young pup is very unlucky but Jerry Lee is so totally loved and adored by his family who would do anything for him. It would be fair to say his vet bills have been large and thanks to PetPlan Insurance, a massive financial burden has been lifted from Jerry Lee’s family. PetPlan are covering the vast majority of all his care and we are all praying we can get this nasty disease under control so Jerry Lee can finally enjoy life to the fullest!! Pet Insurance for your new pup or kitten is something worthy of a discussion. Most pet insurance companies will offer 4-6 weeks free cover initially for your new pup or kitten, which gives you time to look at all the insurance options. We don’t sell pet insurance but we give you information on all the pet insurance companies out there for you to investigate the best option for you. Some cover pre-existing conditions which is a bonus. It makes life simplier for us as your pets veterinarian as we are able to do the very best in care, diagnostics and treatment for your pet with the financial worry removed. For more information on Pet Insurance or Inflammatory Bowel disease be sure to give the clinic a call. Dr Michele McMaster

Repairs to the Carlton Mill footbridge will be completed soon. The popular link between Little Hagley Park and Carlton Mill Rd was damaged in the February 2011 earthquake. Work on the bridge is expected to be complete by the end of September at a cost of $1 million, which will be shared by both the city council and the Government. The bridge was at the centre of controversy last year due to the design put forward by the Stronger Christchurch Infrastruture Rebuild Team. Community members were outraged at the plans for the bridge, which they said was unattractive and stopped users from being able to see the river. Merivale resident Ken McAnergney, who first brought the issue to light within the community and approached the community board, said he was happy with the changes made through the consultation process. “I was appalled with the first illustration,” he said. “SCIRT came and talked to me and we

have had a series of very successful meetings,” he said. “These things that could be foistered upon us by the likes of SCIRT will be there long after us. They need to take things into account like people wanting to enjoy looking into the water.” Mr McAnergney said the way the community board had stepped in on the issue was an improvement from simply “rubberstamping” the design. Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board deputy chairman David Cartwright said the new design and change in process was positive. “It’s a gold medal example of consultation at it’s best. We were able to work with everybody,” he said. He said the new design “ticks all the boxes” for what the community needed. It enabled bridge users to see the water below and also had room for families to stop and watch the river, Mr Cartwright said. The design also had measures put in place to help prevent slipping in frosty conditions.

Demand for action

• From page 1 “SARA has been running the transitional facility and they have been doing a great job, but they can’t do everything,” he said. City councillor Ali Jones said it was time to “get on with it”. She recently found a newspaper in her office from a year ago and the front page headline was ‘local community centre not far away’. “We all know that things take time and it’s essential to get input and feedback from our community. And a big part of that feedback is loud and clear – get on with it.” Shirley-Papanui Community Board deputy chairman Aaron Keown said residents were happy with having the transitional facility. He said there had been “over consultation”. “We are just going around and around in circles,” he said. City councillor Pauline Cotter said it was important to inform the community of each step of the project. “We have heard that our community wants separate spaces to meet in, maybe a cafe, good car and bike parking and to be as close to the Edgeware shops as possible,” she said. SARA told Nor’West News it could not comment until after it had discussed it.

$10,000 to go for Merivale Playground BY ANDREW KING New playground equipment for Merivale Reserve only needs $10,000 more to become a reality. The Merivale Reserve Playground Incorporation has raised $31,665 towards the $85,000 total needed to install playground equipment. All money raised by the group will be matched by the city council, meaning they only need to raise $42,500. The group is fronted by Merivale mother Charlotte Gray (inset), who hopes to have the playground built at the Merivale Reserve on Rugby St. She decided to raise the money herself after she was told in September last year there was no city council funding to install a playground. Foodstuffs Community Trust, Fendalton New World and the Canterbury Community Trust have each donated $5000. On the group’s Givealittle page, $11,665 has been raised. An anonymous $10,000 donation was also received. Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board deputy chairman David Cartwright praised Ms Gray for her passion and drive to do a com-

Edgeware Rd between Sherborne and Manchester Sts will be oneway eastbound for about three months. Packe St between Canon and Purchas Sts is one-way northbound (from city) for about a month. Southbound traffic will be detoured via Canon to Barbadoes and Purchas Sts.

Bridge repairs

The Carlton Mill bridge repairs are under way at the intersection of Harper Ave, Park Tce and Carlton Mill Rd. Two-way traffic remains but reduced lanes on Carlton Mill Rd and Park Tce may cause delays. Extra care is being urged around pedestrians and cyclists. Repairs will take around three months.

Bowler funding

NEW PLAYGROUND: Merivale Reserve on Rugby St will be the site of a new playground once fundraising is complete. Mr Cartwright said the community did not have many places where younger children could play. He said it would be a great addition to the Merivale area. Money can be donated at www.

Hi Abby, you have just won a nationwide youth style competition, how does that feel? It is so exciting I am just so excited by it all. What does it mean to you to win this? It is just so mind-blowing that I could do something like this and I am so excited because it is just the start of my whole career. Has it not quite sunk in that you have won yet? No, it really hasn’t because it is so confidential that I have won that I can’t tell anyone so I am trying to keep it to myself. I have known for 10 days now and I have not been able to tell anyone apart from my family. How hard has that been? So hard. Everyone comes up to me and asks me like 100 times a day. How long have you wanted to be involved with fashion?

I have always been really into fashion and styling, but probably over the last two years I have really got into it with my retail job and running my own dress business. Just helping my sisters with their style and also myself getting my own personal style over the past few years made me get into it more. How hard is it being so involved with fashion but have to wear a school uniform? (Laughing) It is really exciting the days that I don’t have to wear my school uniform. It is annoying but is a lot less pressure. So you don’t modify it at all? Oh no, my school uniform is very strict, you know skirt under the knee that whole drill. What was the most enjoyable part of it? Getting to travel all over the country, going to all workshops and having my own model to style was cool. Also having the whole mall to chose things from for my models to wear. I was living the dream pretty much.

big in industry Learning so much from everyone involved and from the stylists at Westfield, they taught me heaps – it was an amazing experience I am so glad I get to carry it on. What was the worst part of it? That there were four of us girls and only one of us could win. All the girls that competed were so deserving to win. I was close to one of the girls, and it was kind of sad that I get everything and she doesn’t get anything. Well they get the experience but it is just hard being friends and competitors knowing that we all wanted it for each other. So you made some pretty good friends along the way then? Yeah of course. Do your parents know that you have won yet? I am allowed to tell immediate family so yes they know. How do they feel about you winning? They are so excited, they are probably more excited than me at the moment because I have to keep it a secret. It is one of their dreams for me as well. They have always wanted me to do something with fashion. What do your parents do? Are they involved in fashion themselves? Oh no, they are not. My dad doesn’t work and my mum works for the health board at the moment. I am the only one in my family who is really into fashion.

THE FINALISTS: From left, Abby Button, of Christchurch, Chloe Larkin, of Wanaka, Anna Squires, of Auckland and Maxine Fourie, of Auckland. So what do you want to do, will you continue on with fashion and styling? I really want to learn how to style everything. I will learn so much from the next year tripping around and getting mentored in the industry. After that I want to take the skills that I have learnt and maybe do styling for TV shows and movies as well as working on my personal style and trying to work my name up in the industry. Well you have to aim big right? Of course, you have to aim big to get somewhere.

So you said you have sisters. Do you also have a brother or is it all girls in your family? I have a brother and four sisters. Are they all as fashionable as you are? Well they helped me get into fashion because I was always helping them out, styling them. That really has helped me develop those skills because I have had four of them [sisters] to style. I am the youngest of the family so I styled my older sisters. Tell me a little bit about your sisters and brother, what do they do?

One of my sisters has just finished high school, one has moved back to New Zealand from Europe, one works for CERA and another works for Ngai Tahu. So did you all grow up in Christchurch? Yeah, I have always lived in Christchurch, I live in Papanui. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? New York! Why New York? Because that is the happening place to be! Thanks Abby, good luck with the future.

Storm blasts through Adrenaline Forest BY FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Adrenalin Forest in Spencerville was hit by the brunt of Thursday’s storm, forcing the owner to close it for up to a week. The wild weather saw a tree connecting many of the courses uprooted and felled by an “unexpected tornado”. The tree connects six of the seven available courses, which has forced owner Jean Caillabet to close Adrenalin Forest until further damage assessments are done. Fortunately, the tornado struck after the aerial adventure course closed on Thursday, and no one was injured. Adrenalin Forest’s Facebook page said that the tornado was a “bugger” but they had had worse damage in past storms. Until then, all bookings have been postponed.

Creative cupcakes wow top chef A burger and chips-styled cupcake has wowed a judge in a Cotswold School baking competition. Children carefully carried their cupcakes to school to enter them into the contest. Ninety-five children entered for tasting and judged by top chef Andy Cordier. He had a list of criteria and dutifully tasted a slither from each cupcake as well as marking the presentation, originality, difficulty, balance and taste. Five-year-old Lucy Mullen’s cupcake was judged best cupcake in the junior school while Sophie Matthews, 8, was judged best cupcake in the senior school. Lucy Mullen created two cupcakes being a rainbow designed with a pot of gold and a turtle design cupcake. She liked the idea of a rainbow cupcake as it reminded her of the rainbow cake her mum made for her fifth birthday. A special prize was awarded to nine-year-old Ben Camm whose ‘burger and chips’ cupcake showed extreme creativity and originality. When asked about his cupcake he said: “I choose this cupcake because I thought no-one else had done it before. “I cut a cupcake in half for the burger bun and added real sesame seeds and used icing for the cheese.

TECHNIQUE: Kylee McKibbin looks to hit through the ball.

WINNER: Lucy Mullen presents her award-winning rainbow cupcake. “The chips are left over cupcake bits from when I cut the cupcake in half.” Entries for this competition were $1 and the prize money will be donated to Ronald McDonald House.

SKILLS: Ella Jackson learns how to hit a ball.

Cotswold pupils having a ball with cricket lessons Christchurch Metro Cricket representatives have been at Cotswold School over the last few weeks teaching the junior school students cricket skills. Ben McCord and Matt Holstein have been promoting the team sport of cricket and teaching the skills of hitting, catching and throwing to many

schools around Christchurch. Kylee McKibbin, 6, enjoyed learning the pirate catch which is where you catch the ball with one eye open and the other closed. Ella Jackson, 6, liked playing snowball tag which involves running around tagging people with the ball.

George Wilson, 5, showed lots of determination when it came his turn to hit the ball and wants to start playing cricket in a team this year. Overall the pupils really enjoyed learning the skills of cricket and had lots of fun with the Christchurch Metro Cricket representatives.

New Zealand School of Music Jazz Festival took place in early August. Burnside’s Big Band, pictured at left, travelled to Wellington to defend their title of the Best Big Band in New Zealand. Not only did they successfully achieve that aim but they also won five individual awards. The senior jazz combo also won their category.

Teams had to come up with justified economic strategies to address a current issue chosen by Treasury. Regular participants in the NZCF Big Sing Finals, Bel Canto continued to enhance their reputation as arguably the finest Girls’ Choir in New Zealand by winning a Gold Award, one of only four choirs to do so.

REMOVAL: Work starts on removing the hopper at the Edgeware site of Hardie and Thomson.

Redevelopment of iconic business starts BY ANDREW KING An iconic St Albans business has taken the first step towards its redevelopment. Timber and moulding specialists Hardie & Thomson has been in the Edgeware Village for around 106 years. Hit hard by the February 2011 earthquake, the family-owned business continued to provide the community with the same service they are known for. Last week they removed the old hopper system with a crane and diggers. The removal of the hopper system is a small step towards complete site development which includes a drive

through trade sales facility. Hardie & Thomson’s director Casey Thomson said they have specific ideas in mind when it comes to the rebuild. “The site is being developed with sustainability and health and wellbeing as our core values,” he said. “The health-based building education facility will be a major draw card for those wanting to support the true meaning of sustainability. “We see our exclusive construction materials as key to making rapid progress in house size chunks.” Further demolition works will take place in the near future with the new purpose-built facility breaking ground in early 2016.

In the summer of 1989, he had a diving accident that left him a tetraplegic. He paints by holding the brush in his mouth and will demonstrate his technique to the pupils on September 21 at 1.30pm. Seventy-five pupils will be invited to try mouth painting. The result is usually hilarious and highly photogenic as young faces concentrate on the difficult task and not surprisingly spread some paint on themselves, the floor and the child next to them. Mr Philip joined the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists that was founded in 1956 by a group of European artists. MFPA is a self-help organisation which gives people with disabilities the opportunity to fulfil their creative ambitions while still maintaining financial independence by selectively selling their artworks. The MFPA was established in New Zealand in 1961 and currently has 22 members around the country.

Good time to check your smoke alarm By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk Management Officer Frosts, snow on the Port Hills, cold southerlies all belie the fact that we are in spring. In fact, on the 27th daylight saving will start again. That’s just a fortnight away so right now is a good time to check out the specials on batteries at local supermarkets, in preparation to giving your smoke alarms a treat on the day and replacing the batteries. I’m sure there will be some advertising from us about this but this is an eyes up that it is not far away. Saturday night saw some easy chairs set on fire at the Sign of the Bellbird on the Port Hills. The fire spread into the roof of this structure and Governors Bay fire crew spent ages trying to dismantle the roof which was an ancient and intricate design to put the fire out. More mindless vandalism casually destroying something that has been with us for 100 years. Those responsible sure make it easy to dislike them.

TALENT: Artist Grant Philip has not let his disability stop him from painting. Below: Another one of his paintings.

To become a student member an artist must qualify by painting using a brush held in either their mouth or foot, having lost the use of their hands through an illness or accident. Student members receive

scholarships for art supplies and tuition. Once an artist becomes a full member or associate they are guaranteed a salary for life, even if they are unable to continue painting.

its lease and will continue calling Nunweek Park its home. Nunweek has been the spiritual home of Harewood hockey since 1974, with the purpose built clubrooms constructed four years later in 1980. The new lease is for 33 years. Harewood secretary Julie Crake said she was told the lease was approved. “We get to keep our wee postage stamp footprint in the lease,” she said. City council staff looked into the club’s financial situation, finding that during its last lease it spent at least $34,500 on upgrading, building refurbishment and maintenance. Staff believed that the club was financially sound. It has 794 current members including players, financial and life time members. Membership numbers have remained stable and staff support the new lease being granted. Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board deputy chairman David Cartwright could see no reason why they would not extend it. He said Christchurch had a good track record for producing top hockey players, and for that to continue the grassroots had to be looked after. “You just have to look at our track and field guys and what the loss of facilities have done to them, we can see the need to nurture these clubs.”

Come-from-behind win for Cobham pupil

JUBILATION: Rangi celebrates as the St Margaret’s players sink to the turf in despair.

Rangi brings home Federation Cup Rangi Ruru Girls’ School first XI hockey team won the Federation Cup in a nail-biting final in Tauranga. Taking on St Margaret’s College, the winning goal came from captain Charlotte Arthur in the final stages of extra time. The sides were locked at 0-0 after 60 minutes. The current Porritt Cup champions, Rangi Ruru topped their pool and had to defeat the School Premier League champions, Villa Maria to make it to the final. The accolades continued after the game for Arthur who was also named the team’s MVP and was also the tournament’s leading point scorer. Rangi Ruru’s director of sport Jo Fogarty said the team showed real

grit and determination in defence to take the win. “The game was very intense. Heading into extra time having faced a substantial number of penalty corners, the girls knew they had to switch their focus to attack in order to get the ball in the net,” Ms Fogarty said. Rangi Ruru has been the top Christchurch schoolgirls’ hockey team in the Federation Cup for four out of the last five years. Coaches John Radovonich and Rachel McCann were confident that this year they had the squad to make the finals again after missing out last year. “I knew we had the team to win it but that it would take a whole team effort. They produced that today and we’re thrilled,” Miss McCann said.

Cobham Intermediate pupil William Taylor picked up a come-frombehind cross-country gold at the Association of Intermediate and Middle Schools Games in Tauranga. The year 8 runner overtook Hutt International Boys’ Finn Seeds in a sprint-finish down the home straight, after Seeds led most of the way. Taylor said he didn’t know how he won the 3km race at the AIMS Games which has drawn more than 8000 athletes from around the country. “I didn’t really have much energy, so I thought he [Seeds] would’ve taken it,” Taylor said. He confessed he didn’t really have a strategy but tried to not let the front-runner get too ahead. “Every time I got to a hill, I just tried to sprint hard up it to try and catch up,” he said. The tactic paid off as he crossed the line in 10min 24sec. Seeds finished the race with a time of 10min 28sec. Taylor said cross-country is his main sport as he enjoys running.  He trains three times a week with a high school in Christchurch, saying it’s “definitely challenging” training and competing against older people.

CHAMPION: Cobham’s William Taylor won gold in the 3km race. The cross-country is one of 19 sporting codes at this year’s AIMS Games. Taylor’s week is not finished just yet, as he now joins his friends to partake in the AIMS Games hockey competition. Heaton Normal Intermediate runner Rosa Blake picked up silver in the year 7 girls’ race, only beaten by a record-setting run by Tauranga Rudolph Steiner runner Maia Flint. Flint led from beginning to end in the opening race, finishing the tough 3km Waipuna Park course in 11min 25sec. Blake was 18sec behind, with Isabella Richardson from St Cuthbert’s College third.

SOLID EFFORT: Heaton Normal Intermediate runner Rosa Blake finished second in the 3km year 7 girls’ race.

Another Boys’ High NZ rep


Christchurch Boys’ High School has produced yet another rugby prodigy from their ‘first five-eighth factory’, in the form of Josh McKay. Josh has earned himself the chance to follow in the footsteps of Boys’ High old boys, and All Blacks, such as Colin Slade, Aaron Mauger, Andrew Mehrtens and Daniel Carter. Josh has an opportunity to break into the

international rugby scene, as his name was included in a 53-man development camp, that trained in Palmerston North over the weekend. The camp was picked by national selectors over the course of the season, to determine both the New Zealand schools and the Barbarians schools sides. If selected for either team, Josh and his side will play the other New Zealand team this Saturday. After that, both teams will travel to Brisbane to

play two Australian schools teams, and a Samoan schools team at the end of the month. Josh is one of six Cantabrians to be picked for the development camp. Raymond Nu’u and Harrison Allan of St Andrew’s College and William Tucker of St Bede’s College attended the camp. Tom Christie and Brodie McAlister of Shirley Boys’ High School were also selected. The teams’ selectors will announce the squads later today.

BIG CHANCE: Josh McKay has earned himself a spot in the 53-man development camp that will make up the New Zealand and Barbarians schools sides.

Friendly rivalry in league game Christchurch Boys’ High School held its first ever day boy’s versus boarders game of rugby league. The student-driven game was a way for them to have a game of league and blow off some steam. Headmaster Nic Hill said it was a great way to have a bit of friendly rivalry between the two. “It was great to see these guys making big, big tackles with a huge smile on their face while doing it,” he said. NEW RIVALRY: Christchurch Boys’ High School held its first ever day boys v boarders rugby The day boy’s managed to overleague game. come the boarders 32-16.

Osteopaths spring to the rescue


s Spring comes along, many of us feel compelled to spring into action….dig the garden, clean up the house - inside and out, climb ladders to clean out guttering, tidy backyards, trim hedges etc. This sudden burst of physical activity, after a winter spent in semi-hibernation, can often cause pain and discomfort in different parts of the body, stopping us in our tracks. However, help is at hand from the osteopaths at Osteopaths on Ensors & Wairakei, where our UK trained professionals can bring relief, usually in just a few sessions. “There’s a misconception that osteopathy is only about bones and backs”, says osteopath Christina Creek, “but it can help with shoulder, hip, ankle problems and indeed any other musculoskeletal pain or indeed visceral pain, ie other internal problem.” “We don’t just treat the problem area,” Christina continues, “we look for the cause of the problem and treat that first.” Christina trained in the UK at the European School of Osteopathy, graduating in 1993, then went on to study paediatric


osteopathy in Melbourne, graduating in 1999. Living in NZ since 1993, she launched the Ensors Clinic in 1995 and the Wairakei Clinic in 2004 & both have been busy ever since. “People with sporting injuries, people suffering from migraines or difficulty sleeping, are all able to be given some relief ”, says Christina, “with our gentle hands-on osteopathic techniques.” All osteopaths have undergone comprehensive 4-5 year training and are registered with the NZ Osteopathic Registration Council and ACC. So this Spring, if something ‘Oooooh--Aaaargh!’ happens to your body, pop in to Osteopaths on Ensors or Osteopaths On Wairakei and we will help put the spring back in your step!!!

Acupuncture Without Needles stimulates particular points on the body, giving an instant release of energy and helps the body to heal itself. The treatment is not invasive or painful, and, as Dr. Lan explains, “the results are very quick and effective.” Her ideas are revolutionary and are captured in her book “Dr. Lan’s Reflexology Network.” In it, she explains that unlike many other practitioners, she has found that there are reflexology points across the entire body and not just in certain areas, and she believes that her successes are based on her wider understanding.

Treatment offered for headaches, facial and jaw pain

Physical Sense Gym and Physio, located in Colombo Street Sydenham, focuses both on helping people stay physically fit and healthy, and helping people to overcome various health problems.


s physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk explains, when our muscles tighten this can refer pain to many of these areas around the face and head. Dehydration can be the catalyst for tightening the neck muscle (SCM), which causes pain in the ear, forehead and round the eye and jaw joint areas. Tightening of the temporalis muscle can refer pain to the teeth, which can be confusing when the person visits the dentist to have it seen to and the dentist

can’t find a reason for the recurring pain. Teeth grinding at night and teeth clenching during the day are also a major cause of muscle tightening. Physiotherapy treatment for these problems is based on deactivating the ‘trigger points’ through hands-on massage therapy to relax the muscles, which is the least invasive and a very effective form of treatment. Dry needling is another technique used for muscle relaxation, but is only used with the client’s consent,

Ietje says. “We release the muscles to give immediate relief, and at the same time work on the cause. For example, we have a feedback headband that is worn at night to help people to learn not to clench their teeth while they’re asleep. We also work on the client’s cervical or neck part of the spine, where overuse can cause muscles to tighten, creating pain.” Teaching self-management of stress is an important aspect of the clinic’s treatment as well as teaching breathing techniques, which go hand in hand with managing stress.

The gym is open to the public for regular exercise classes, including step and spin bike, while also offering specialised classes for people with ailments such diabetes, osteoporosis, vascular problems and those who face difficulties following a stroke. Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377 2577 or visit

MAXWELLS DRYCLEANING EXPANDS AGAIN Maxwells Drycleaning is often the first name that comes to mind when locals are looking for drycleaning with quality care; now that they have purchased Taylors Master Valet Drycleaners, their network of shops, agencies and commercial customers is even larger. Following the earthquakes, Maxwells’ factory site was badly damaged and a brand new, much larger plant was established at 20 Birmingham Drive. This state-of-theart installation allowed for expansion and was specifically designed to use natural resources as efficiently as possible. They were pleased to be able to incorporate many of the highly trained staff from Taylors’ operation to add to their own highly skilled team, combining some of the city’s best talent and experience in the field. They are the only large drycleaning facility available in Christchurch, so they are well placed to pick up on the developing commercial needs of our city. Their forward

planning means that as the vibrant hotel and convention centre community continues to grow, they are able to provide the high volume cleaning services such businesses require. Maxwells have shops in most suburbs, with friendly, well trained staff ready to answer customers’ questions. Whether you need your Show Week dress pressed, your just-worn wedding gown cleaned or your dusty drapes freshened after earthquake repairs, Maxwells Drycleaning are the first place to consider. They have recently opened another branch at 526 Wairakei Road which is already providing their great service to the community in Burnside. Maxwells have the only customised drape presses in Christchurch which give your drapes that crisp, sharp look after cleaning. Not all drycleaners are created equal, especially with more difficult jobs like drapes and that special garment. Make sure you go to the experts and get the right advice, first time.

Maxwells amazing business shirt deal is proving a huge success as it provides a quick and efficient way of getting your shirts cleaned and pressed. It saves the time and hassle of having to iron shirts over the weekend. Check out these deals instore. Also, check out the discounts available in the Entertainment Book. Maxwells also provide a first class repair and alteration service from replacing zips to shortenings, re-hemmings and repairing holes and tears.

Award winning stand-up, not to be missed...

Billy T Award winning comedian and star of the hit feature film, What We Do In The Shadows, Chilean born New Zealander, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, brings his unique comedy stylings to Morrell & Co for one night only. Following sold out shows in Auckland and Wellington during this year's NZ International Comedy Festival, this is one hour of award winning stand-up, not to be missed.

As seen on the Old Mout Comedy Gala and a regular on 7Days, Cori is one of NZ's finest young comedy talents. The last year has seen him attend the prestigious Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals as part of the What We Do In The Shadows team as well as attending the film's U.S. premiere in New York, whereafter, he performed massive shows across New York and L.A., alongside some of the biggest names in the industry like Hannibal Burress, Nick Kroll, Jeffrey Ross and Kristen Schaal. WIth a busy second half of the year, which includes a recent addition to the family and more shows overseas, this might be the last time to see him live in Christchurch for a while.

Snap RuseWebsites

Returning to the Carlton for the celebrations is NZ music legend, Jason Kerrison. Jason is the famed singer/songwriter for award winning NZ band, Opshop and judge on NZ’s Got Talent, he is also known as DJ Noise Controller of The Babysitters Circus. Also playing will be Carlton regulars, Flat City Brotherhood. Carlton | 1 Papanui Road | ph 355 9543.

Opening for Cori will be local comics Snap RuseWebsites (self professed national sex icon) and Dylan Neale ('blind' stand up comedian).

Cori Gonzalez-Maucer performs this Thursday (17 th September) at Morrell & Co, 280 Lincoln Rd, phone 423 1440. Tickets on sale now at Eventfinda.
