CAMPERS BRING PROBLEMS TO ADDINGTON PARK Camping activities spark complaints but no fines issued

GABRIELLE STUART AND TOM DOUDNEY

Freedom campers at Addington Park have sparked complaints by leaving rubbish lying around, using the grounds as a toilet and blocking up the car parking when they are not supposed to be there. But no freedom campers have been fined for breaking the rules. Addington resident Sue Gorton said a number of people were not happy about the freedom campers at the park since a new bylaw was introduced in

INSIDE:

December. The park is one of three areas where freedom camping is allowed, after the city council cracked down after problems in New Brighton last year. Windsport Park in Ferrymead, and the Lower Styx River mouth. Campers can stay five nights and can stay from one hour before sunset to 9am the next day. Mrs Gorton said with rubbish bins overflowing and parking

spaces often full from 3pm, residents didn’t believe the park was well set up for freedom camping. Paul “We are McMahon concerned about the hygiene down there and [allowing freedom camping in the park] has just shifted the problem from one area to another, which is in our backyard at the moment. There needs to

be a long-term solution, not just moving it from neighbourhood to neighbourhood,� she said. City council regulatory compliance acting head Tracey Weston said the park was monitored every day. She said they recorded the vehicle registrations of everyone staying at the site, so they could monitor how long people were staying. Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board chairman Paul McMahon said there had been

problems when the bylaw was first put in place in December. The toilets had initially been locked at night and there had not been enough rubbish bins, which had sparked problems, he said. “But they’ve got those (rubbish bins) now and the toilets are kept open, so it has improved,� he said. “Having people visit Christchurch as an affordable place to come to is a good thing, so long as they are abiding by the bylaws,� he said.

Call to include quake recovery plan in bill

ALLEGED ASSAULT A person was taken to Christchurch Hospital after an alleged assault on Harrow St, Phillipstown. St John sent an ambulance to the scene around 12.30pm on Thursday and took the person to hospital with moderate injuries.

Fears Sydenham will be forgotten “It does not have the power to say this is what we want for our area or stop things we don’t want to happen,” she said. If it was included in the bill it would allow all the ideas proposed in the plan to be implemented. City councillor Tim Scandrett said he was confident it would be a mere “formality” to get it on the bill. “The community board, city council and the Sydenham Quarter is all on the same page with this one, we want it in,” he said. Ms Stack said Colombo St was one of the “gateways to the city” and the area had a lot of historical sites that have to be preserved. “We don’t want to be forgotten,” she said. “We want a city of beauty. We had one and we want one back.”

Managing birds a challenge Concern has been raised over the months regarding the high number of canada goose and other waterfowl in waterways and the pollution they cause. Environment Canterbury chief operating officer Don Rule explains what is being done about the issue. We acknowledge the water quality issues at Kerrs Reach, in all of the Avon River/Otakaro and in many of the waterways in greater Christchurch. Water quality is affected by waterfowl at Kerrs Reach and elsewhere. The prolific macrophyte and scum growth there indicates high levels of nutrients in the water, which promotes plant growth. Numbers of canada goose are highly variable. In the city they tend to congregate at Travis Wetland, the Christchurch wastewater treatment ponds and along the Avon River/ Otakaro. Since the earthquakes their distribution has changed with the increase in open, grassed areas, an attractive habitat for canada geese. Unlike the black swan, canada goose is no longer classified as a game bird under the Wildlife Act.

SOAP BOX This means there is no single agency with responsibility for the species, so its management within a particular area such as Kerrs Reach is a challenge. A group of organisations is working to determine how best to manage canada geese. Christchurch International Airport Ltd is required by statute to manage threats to aircraft safety. This means the birds establishing around the city and at Te Waihora/ Lake Ellesmere are a problem for the airport. They are also a problem for farmers growing crops, and a pollution threat to waterways like the Avon River/ Otakaro. Short-term options include organised culls, while a medium to longer term option may be a pest management plan. A number of approaches are being

considered. All the relevant agencies are working through options and solutions. We are confident that this work, as well as the wider water quality actions being taken by the Christchurch-West Melton Canterbury Water Management Strategy Zone Committee and other groups, will in time deliver the outcomes Dale Maher and other recreational water users are looking for. There is currently a discussion document out on a future Regional Pest Management Plan for Canterbury. Go to www.ecan.govt. nz for details. Contributions are welcome until February 28. Have your say Would you support a cull of canada geese in order to clean up our waterways? Email frasr.walker@ starmedia.kiwi

Something on your mind? Send your letter to shelley.robinson@starmedia.kiwi. Reader Julie Papps responds to concerns over quarries in the west of the city applying to dig up to 4m below the groundwater line. I don’t like the sound of this – digging deeper and then filling the hole, with random fill. Who will police that? No one I’m guessing – just like many of the other landfills in Christchurch, of which people are now finding out with the info now on their Lim Reports.   In reading other countries’ problems with their underground water supply, ie: USA – fracking, we have to protect ours from future problems. If it all goes wrong, there is no turning back.  We are so, so lucky with our water supply, so far, and we should now be focusing on conserving and protecting it. Our above ground waterways are not good, please leave the underground supply alone.

Collector to share $1000 boost for 20,000 plus toys trades student CHELSEA DANIELS

A man who has collected toys for 54 years is getting ready to share his large treasure trove, opening a gallery in Waltham next month. Alan Preston, the man behind the Toy Collector gallery, has more than 20,000 toys ready to be showcased at the Falsgrave St site. He is a self-confessed “big kid” and has toys ranging from old to new, used to mint condition. Mr Preston (right) gives children a glimpse into the toys of yesteryear, and what playtime was like long before electronic gaming. “I was trying to show kids that they can get back into their toys, instead of the computers and the phones. (They should) look after their toys and have fun with them,” he said. It has cost him around a quarter of a million dollars over the last couple of years to get the gallery set up – collecting toys and getting custom-made show cases from Auckland.

TOY COLLECTOR: Alan Preston is sharing his collection of more than 20,000 toys by opening a gallery in Waltham next month.

The avid collector’s lifelong hobby came from humble beginnings – an obsession with toy cars. “My favourite toys when I

was that age was the Matchbox toys that were imported from England. They’d only come in so often, you were only allowed to buy four each time. So, we had the whole family go down – my sister hated it,” he said. • The Toy Collector opens to the public on February 6 at 90 Falsgrave St. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children and $25 for family.

Woolston resident Cathie Schofield has been awarded a $1000 grant to help her become a tradie. The mother-of-two was awarded through the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology Foundation. After spending several years out of the workforce raising her two children, Ms Schofield enrolled in CPIT in February 2014 in a level 2 pre-trade course in furniture and joinery. She went on to complete level 3 and 4 training before completing her training in 2015. Taking the knowledge she earned as a trades student, she was employed by MWF Joinery in July 2015. The $1000 grant from the CPIT Foundation was in recognition of her commitment to and success within the trades industry. Phillipstown resident Cina Wigmore was awarded a Karen Lewis grant for her efforts in food and hospitality. Ms Wigmore was awarded $1500 as a contribution to her living costs and this year’s study at CPIT. In addition to the above grants,

CPIT Foundation supported The Rakatahi Awards by providing high-achieving Maori and Pacific Island high school students the opportunity to attend Oprah’s show: An Evening with Oprah, along with a leader’s lunch in Auckland. Hillmorton High School student Tiare Scott was one of ten who went along to see the iconic American speaker. CPIT Foundation chairman Carl Pascoe said foundation trustees are looking forward to another wonderful year supporting the CPIT community. “The CPIT Foundation works hard to support those wanting to achieve in their chosen fields of study,” he said.

Sebastian Boyle

Actor to bring own characters Top Dog Theatre will be presenting Hamlet from February. Georgia O’Connor-Harding spoke to Addington resident Sebastian Boyle on landing the lead role, what he would like to see for young people in the city and his encounter with the late actor Alan Rickman Hi Sebastian, well done on getting the role of Hamlet. Where does this role sit with the other ones you have played? Hamlet is a great role. It has got a lot of range and different emotions in it. It is obviously very well-known – one of the best-known pieces in English literature. Last year I played Richard III and there are some similarities. So you have had a bit of experience in the Shakespearean genre. A little bit. Richard III was the first

Shakespearean play I performed in. Before that I had done musicals and plays particularly at MUSOC and DRAMASOC at Canterbury University. These two plays have been the first time launching into the classical genre. Just for any person who doesn’t know the story of Hamlet, could you just briefly give me an overview of it? Hamlet is a young prince of Denmark. The play was set several hundred years ago around Shakespearean time. At the start of the play Hamlet is mourning the death of his father the king. He is particularly upset that his mother within two months has married his uncle. He quickly learns his uncle had something to do with the death of his father. He is visited by a ghost and is prompted to take revenge. He pushes himself into taking revenge and eventually killing the uncle – bit of a spoiler.

Were you surprised you received the lead role? You never expect to get a role because there are so many other people that would have been just as great. I mean the great thing about auditions is you can have a lot of fun. If you don’t get the part, you can go in front of a few people and try out a character you wouldn’t do otherwise. I take it you would want to bring your own character to the show seeing there have been so many plays recently. Yes. And each time I have seen it people have done it differently. I think the thing about Hamlet is while there are a lot of qualities about him you wouldn’t particularly like, they are things you can understand him doing. Few of us have had our parents murdered or had their mother marry their uncle. But you can understand the idea of jealously and empathy. Do you have a favourite quote from Hamlet and why?

There was a line we were going to trim out for length factors – the full Hamlet show is three hours. A bit long but it goes: “What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty! In form and moving how express and admirable! In action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a God! The beauty of the world. The paragon of animals.” That is something that had a lot of meaning to me as a character. Going back a bit, when did your performing arts career start for you?  A part from being in a play at primary school when I was six, it all started when I was at Canterbury University. At DRAMASOC I wrote a fulllength play for orientation a few years ago. It was a great environment to get experience and put on some great theatre.  Did you study arts at university?  I did a bachelor of arts and political science and law but no I never really studied theatre. It has always been on the side for me. I had always wanted to give it a go but hadn’t got round to it.

to lead role – Hamlet That is the nice thing about being at university – not just what you do in the classroom but around it as well. What is one of the most memorable or horrific things that has happened to you on stage? The last time I did an outdoor show – it was a really fantastic thing to put on but this night we were performing the wind was a lot stronger than we anticipated. Our entire set basically collapsed. Our backstage crew and director were there for about the last half hour of the show holding up the backdrop. If you have ever tried to hold your arms over your head for a long time that is fairly challenging. What would you like to see more of in the city for the performing arts? The future is scary. I think I would love to see in the city more opportunities for young people coming out of high school or university to stage shows themselves. Something where people can put on stories that mean something to them. I think a lot of people get involved at high school and then as work life comes on they

either don’t have the time to do it or can’t see the opportunity. Would you agree the performing arts world can be quite influential on issues, everyday life and change people’s opinions?  I think a lot of it is empathy and understanding for others.

A great play can put you in the mindset of someone you may have never thought about before. The reason actors speak monologues often is to give you a good look into their thoughts. What would an example for you be? Playing Richard III was

interesting. Richard is looked on historically as being a villainous character. The way the Shakespearean play was written casts him this light as well. But we were performing this last year when they found his body under a supermarket car park in Britain. It made me think more about who he was rather than just a villain. Looking at the environment he was in and the challenges he faced personally you can see why he acted the way he did. On a more fun note – is there any actor that has inspired you or that you would like to work with if you could? One actor is relevant in my mind as it has been in the news. I saw a play in New York called Seminar that Alan Rickman was in. Admirably it was like ooh, I am seeing a famous actor perform. He was actually coming down with a bit of a throat infection or something. But it was amazing to see how commanding he was on stage. And not in the typical way. It was just that quiet confidence. I can’t even analyse what he did to come across like that. I hung out backstage and got his autograph – such a nice moment.

It just makes you think there are cool things you can do on stage without being big or flashy. You have done a bit of travelling.   A little bit. New York is a place I have always wanted to go to. Time Square was a spectacle. At the same time I enjoy walking around neighbourhoods and each time I would go round a corner there would be something new I didn’t expect. Living in Christchurch it is a different sense but you see what is emerging.  And lastly if you have any spare time, what do you enjoy doing most? Getting to perform, act and direct is cool. I like to go to the gym which is a nice wind down outside it. I love writing – I used to write for a publication called The Civilian. I used to be the editor of CANTA magazine and that is how I got to know the editor of The Civilian. You haven’t thought of pursuing a career in journalism?  No, I mean I have edited the magazine and worked in communications but I don’t quite have the go-get-it spirit that a good reporter needs.

Girl guides do a bloomin’ good job PINK EVERYWHERE: Pansies, ferns, leaves and daffodils were all painted on.

Holida y

Fun The fences outside the Linwood Resource Centre got a new look thanks to some some young volunteers. Volunteering Canterbury was approached by members of Girl Guiding New Zealand, who offered to help out with a community project during their recent jamboree. They joined in with the city council’s Off-the-Wall programme and came up with the idea to help repaint the Linwood Resource Centre. They repainted the fences with pansies, ferns, daffodils and fruits.

I really, really like this wine. It’s not just its elegant aromas of peppercorn, plum, violet and red fruit freshly dusted with cocoa powder, or its buoyant acidity and ethereal texture or even its sandy, emerylike tannins with just the right amount of ‘chew’. It’s mainly that all that good stuff can be had for just $20. From supermarkets.

health Six simple ideas for happier living

15

> Take baby steps to yoga bliss, p21

S

AVING MONEY and staying fit are traditional New Year’s resolutions, but overly packed schedules and the materialistic focus of modern day life are inspiring a new goal for many people: to live happier in 2016 and beyond. Health and performance expert and On Target Living president Matt Johnson offers six surprisingly simple yet profoundly effective ways to boost overall happiness.

■ Go on a date night or family night ■ Exercise at a time that fits your schedule ■ Walk during lunch ■ Have a monthly massage

5

Fuel happiness from within: “I believe we have more behavioural and mental health issues than we should, and a big part of this is the lack of proper nutrients,” says Johnson, adding an estimated 91 per cent of people do not get enough omega 3s.

1

Make sleep a priority: Getting seven to eight hours of sleep each night is critical for the body to produce hormones that trigger happiness, explains Johnson. “I am a big fan of always going to bed with a positive attitude,” Johnson says. “If you go to bed angry, worried or stressed, that tends to come back the next day. Do what you can before bed to reset your mood. Read, take a bath, exercise or talk face-to-face. Try to avoid screen time.”

2

Make more time for family: “Over the last 20 years, family time has vanished. Sporting events, projects, work and technology have swallowed this time,” says Johnson. “Family faceto-face time is the most important part of a healthy family relationship and

6 Six simple ideas for happier living happiness.” Johnson suggests planning family dinner two to three times a week. “When we start to eat dinner as a family in the home, our health and happiness will follow,” he notes.

3

Carve out whitespace: This is time you dedicate to yourself to refresh, unplug and rejuvenate. This could be making time to do yoga, enjoy a hobby, read, meditate or take a bath.

“People who have hobbies and activities that give them balance tend to be happier. If your hobby is texting, checking social media or watching TV, this will set you up for a feeling of emptiness. These things are fine in short periods, but too much will take away what life is giving us.”

4

Achieve work/life balance: With the expanse of the internet and mobile commuting,

workers are now connected more than ever before. But this can get out of control when answering emails 24/7. “We all want to be successful, but with anything you need proper balance. If you look at professional athletes, the best ones try to find activities outside of their sport that help them stay hungry, engaged and excited.” Johnson has these work/life balance suggestions: ■ Don’t check email after 8pm

QUALITY SLEEP: The importance of sleep can not be overemphasised.

Embrace gratitude: Thinking of the things you are grateful for can have a dramatic effect on your satisfaction and overall happiness. Do this daily as you wake up or make it a conversation you have with your children right before bed. “Telling yourself you are grateful for your health, family, friends, job and life gives you that pat on the back we all need,” he says. “I also think we don’t tell people how much we appreciate them until they are gone. I encourage everyone to write a handwritten letter to one person each year who made a huge impact in their life. They may not know or maybe you don’t tell them often enough. My last letter was to my Mum. She is the — BPT glue in our family.”

Take baby steps to yoga bliss By Rachel Grunwell “I can’t do yoga”. This is what lots of people tell me. “But anyone can do yoga,” I reply. Many people reckon they need to be “flexible” or a circus star to stretch. But that’s not what yoga is about. It’s about just feeling a stretch where it benefits you. And if you are in a class with an experienced yoga teacher, then they will give different options with each yoga move. This is so you can tap into the level that best benefits your body. I work with lots of runners (I take ‘yoga for runners’ classes in

Auckland) and so I tell my yogi students that they would never expect to run a marathon overnight; so why expect to nail the first yoga class you try? We’re so hard on ourselves! Like all things, it takes time to improve. No matter what age or ability, anyone can tap into the benefits of this ancient practice. It’s especially useful for runners and athletes to help re-balance the body, but the mind benefits are as big as the body benefits too. I use yoga to strengthen, stretch and tone my body for marathon running, but I also use it to calm my

mind, de-stress, detox and to reach my “bliss place”. But it wasn’t always like that. I used to wobble on every balance pose and strength work would frustrate me, while inversions would infuriate me. But now I love it and it helps to keep my life a bit more balanced and fuels my happiness. So stop, drop and yoga sometime. Give it a go. ■ Rachel Grunwell is our weekly wellbeing columnist.

your way back to it As we return to our normal daily routines after the holidays you may begin to find the odd ache or pain creeping in.

T

his is a good indicator from our bodies, that the holiday routine was somewhat different. Perhaps you sit a lot for work and you were on the go or, you are normally more active and the holiday break was more sedentary. Either way the sooner you pay attention to these signals the easier it will be to deal with it. So what can you do to ward off pain and stiffness and boost your energy and alertness? 10 simple stretching exercises at your desk that will release tension from head to toe. They take only a few minutes. Set the alarm on your cell phone or computer to go off every hour to remind you it’s time to get up and stretch. Just stand up and sit down - no hands If you stand up and sit down (over and over) without using your hands it can be a challenge, do it while you’re on the phone; no one will know. Shrug your shoulders - to release the neck and shoulders Inhale deeply and shrug your shoulders, lifting them high up to your ears. Hold. Release and drop. Repeat three times. Loosen the hands with air circles Clench both fists, stretching both hands

out in front of you. Make circles in the air, first in one direction, to the count of ten. Then reverse the circles. Shake out the hands. Point your fingers - good for hands, wrist, and forearms

Stretch your left hand out in front of you, pointing fingers toward the floor. Use your right hand to increase the stretch, pushing your fingers down and toward the body. Be gentle do the same with the other hand. Now stretch your left hand out straight in front, wrist bent, with fingers pointing skyward. Use your right hand to increase the stretch, pulling the fingers back toward your body. Do the same on the other side. Release the upper body with a torso twist Inhale and as you exhale, turn to the right and grab the back of your chair with your right hand, and grab the arm of the chair with your left. With eyes level, use your grasp on the chair to help twist your torso around as far to the back of the room as possible. Hold the twist and let your eyes continue the stretch see how far around the room you can peer. Slowly come back to facing forward. Repeat on the other side. Do leg extensions Grab the seat of your chair to brace yourself

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or T

could it be mainly my muscles?

he team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and senior clients visit complaining of pain in one or both hips. Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests that a major part of the pain could be due to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis. “Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason for the pain may be the muscles around the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a back muscle could also be the cause, as shown in the image. Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old client with severe arthritis who walked with a stick, told her, “I will end up in a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight through my right leg due to pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she was walking with her stick but without the severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was one of the factors that made her muscles spasm but the other was that older people move less and the flexed position the hip is in when we sit is particularly bad for the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that although the client was 89 and could have been “given up on” or told to live with the pain, she made a difference to her health and wellbeing. At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques (massage and triggerpoint deactivation techniques) are used to release the muscles. The client also gets a home exercise program

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt) a back Hip muscle that causes hip pain

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

designed to mobilize and stretch the hip, strengthen the important core muscles and increase general strength and balance. They teach a movement sequence that stretches the hip in all directions whilst the client is able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients. In many cases having the muscles released and being taught how to maintain it, is enough

to stay on top of the problem. If severe arthritis is the underlying cause, some maintenance therapy may be necessary, but that is often more affordable and, for older patients, better tolerated than surgery. In very few treatments the client will know if it is going to work for them or not, without financial commitment. Physical Sense Gym & Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. There is a bus

stop in front of the door and there is ample parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz.
