‘FRIGHTFUL’ LEVELS OF E.COLI Parts of Heathcote River back in spotlight for water quality CAITLIN MILES

Canada geese, humans and dog faeces have been revealed as the sources of E.coli in parts of the Heathcote River – at levels unsafe for even recreational use. Ferniehurst St, Bowenvale Ave, and Catherine St sites on the river, have “frightful” levels of faecal matter – even at normal flow levels, with canada geese most to blame, according to a recently released report. The Environmental Science and Research report investigated what sources were responsible for faecal matter in nine sites across the Heathcote and Avon Rivers. At normal flow levels all the sites are above safe E.coli levels. Ferniehurst St has bird and dog faecal matter, Bowenvale Ave and Waltham Park has wildfowl faeces and Catherine St has bird and human faeces. After rainful all the sites jump to even higher levels of E.coli, all having human, bird and dog faeces in them. Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board deputy chairwoman Islay McLeod said the figures were “frightful”.


Canterbury Medical Officer of Health Dr Alistair Humphrey said the levels meant no one should swim, or consume food from these sites. Opawaho/Heathcote River Network chairwoman Dr Helene Mautner (below) said the reason for the spike following rainfall is a result of storm water and sewage overflowing into the river. Report co-author Dr Brent Gilpin said the city council is looking at options to clean up the rivers. “In terms of reducing human waste, the council are working on the replacement of sewerage pipes, and pollution events are mainly occurring after major rainfall events. They mainly come from the occasional big blockages, but they’re sometimes unavoidable.” Dr Mautner said community involvement is key in making steps to clean up the rivers. “The community are aware that the rivers aren’t in great shape, it’s about making them aware of their actions around the rivers, picking up dog excrement, things like that,” she said. There will be a city wide river clean-up taking place on May 7.

New Alice theatre coming soon FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

A new cinema is only weeks away from opening at The Tannery. Alice’s Deluxe Cinemas’ owners Jeremy, Julian and father Paul Stewart were busy putting in the projectors last week, gearing up for the opening later this month. But what the cinema on Garland St, Woolston, will be showing first is still under wraps, said Julian Stewart. The family also run Alice in Videoland, on Tuam St He said they could not reveal the first movie to be shown but said it is “safe to say” that the The Jungle Book, Hunt for the Wilder People, Eddie the Eagle, and Florence Foster Jenkins would be in the mix. The cinema will consist of two “state-of-the-art luxurious theatres”, and hold 86 people between them, 54 in one and 32 in the other. Julian Stewart said the cinema will not show just one genre of films, but a selection of award-winning films, documentaries, foreign films, mainstream films and even operas. Alice in Videoland was first opened 30 years ago on Her-

ASSOCIATION’S FIRST MEETING Hoon Hay Residents’ Association will have its first public meeting tonight. The association was put together after Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board member Melanie Coker felt the need for a group as she believes the city council best communicates with the community through groups. The meeting will be held at 90 Hoon Hay Rd, the former Children’s Library at 7.30pm. PAUL MCMAHON RESIGNS Paul McMahon has resigned as chairman of the Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board at the end of last month. His resignation will not force a by-election. Community board member and city councillor Phil Clearwater said he was a hard-working member and his leadership skills and thoughtful contribution will be missed. Mr McMahon is leaving Christchurch to start a new job in Wellington. Deputy chairwoman Karolin Potter will oversee the meetings.

BOTTLE STORE HEARING A contentious proposed liquor store that was going to be on the corner of Spencer St and Lincoln Rd was due to go to hearing last week but the application was withdrawn. The store was widely opposed by residents in the Addington area, the city council received more than 39 objections about the application by Nekita Enterprises, including four of which came in after the official objection period closed.

Flame files Group needs new Change the batteries van to remain active Charity group Learn Active is in need of a new van to continue its work with intellectuallydisabled people. It runs a programme called Active Discoveries that cater for 18-35-year-olds with intellectual disabilities who wish to get active and make new friends. The group hopes to raise $10,000 for the new van on its ‘Givealittle’ page. The charity’s old van broke down and they are now fundraising for a new one so they can continue to take students on trips. It runs several programmes based on different levels of abilities. They run once a week throughout the school term ranging from hiking to rock climbing, kayaking and more. Learn Active has more than 40 students involved in the programmes and needs transport to get them there. “Having a reliable vehicle to transport us and our equipment to outdoor locations throughout Canterbury is vital to the success of our programmes,” Learn


Smoke alarms should be like car seat belts. Nobody thinks twice about clicking tight every time they get into a car. Likewise working smoke alarms should be an absolute expectation in every home. Which made this weekend an important one because daylight saving ended with clocks being hauled back an hour. You might have seen the latest advertisements from the Fire Service, as always encouraging people to use the day as a trigger to having the batteries in your smoke alarms changed. Too many of us use the warning cheep of the alarm to tell us it’s time to change batteries. There are good reasons not to do this. If it happens while you’re away it’s possible the battery will be completely dead by the time you return. You’ll be living with the mistaken belief that the alarm will warn you of fire. If you’re home when it happens I can almost guarantee it

LEARNING: The students learn many skills and get to experience the outdoors. Below: Going for hikes is one of the many trips Learn Active takes its students on.

will occur at about 3am. Which means the only way you’ll get back to sleep will be to pull the alarm down and remove the battery. You’re now unprotected. And will remain so for as long as it takes you to buy a new battery and reinstate the alarm. Using this weekend every year to ensure your smoke alarm batteries are changed, or if you have alarms with 10-year batteries, that they are cleaned with the brush accessory on your vacuum cleaner, creates a habit of a lifetime. More likely a longer lifetime too.

Name revealed for merged polytechs The merger of two polytechnics now has a name, the Ara Institute of Canterbury. The new name was announced last week after it was decided in November last year that Aoraki Polytechnic and the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology would merge. Ara, meaning arise or pathway in Maori, is the next stage in the over 200 year combined history of CPIT and Aoraki Polytechnic. Underneath the new institute’s name is the Maori phrase ‘ara rau, taumata rau’, which means ‘many pathways, many opportunities’. The Ara logo represents an upward journey of learning, while also showing Maori tukutuku panelling, which was traditionally used to decorate meeting houses. A plan has been put in place to extend the range of programmes and services and become a destination for national and international students.

Both institutes have been in the Canterbury and Waitaki region for more than 100 years each. Ara Institute of Canterbury chairwoman Jenn Bestwick (left) said the intention of the new facility is to continue working with industry partners and our communities to adapt to the needs of the region and of modern learners. “Our new name signals we have stepped into an exciting new future together.” Ara deputy chairwoman Janie Annear said business, science, ICT and youth pathway programmes have been extended to south Canterbury this year.

Mike Coleman

Reverend helps others fight Reverend Mike Coleman speaks to Fraser Walker-Pearce about how he became an earthquake protest organiser, backpacking around the Americas, and being a school counsellor Hi Mike, tell me a little bit about yourself and your family. Well I’m 53-years-old. I’m married to Robyn, we’re about to have our 29th anniversary, she’s a medical scientist. I always say she’s the bright one. I have a Bachelor of Commerce and Accounting. I graduated from Canterbury University and the Christchurch Teachers College. I went on to teach at Waimea College, as well as St Bede’s College and Linwood High which is now Linwood College. I travelled overseas and backpacked around the Americas with my wife, then got a Bachelor of Theology in Auckland, and that was my training to become a minister. I actually grew up as a Roman Catholic and went to Xavier College, but later on became

a Baptist before becoming Anglican. Wow that’s quite a background. And do you have any children? Yes, we have three kids, Matthew our eldest is 25, Simon is 19, and Emily is 11. Matthew is a product manager at an electronics firm, Simon is doing his second year studying chemistry at Canterbury University, and Emily is at Banks Avenue School. I also love cycling, going to the gym and having fun with the family. We also have one grandchild, Matthew and his partner Paris have a boy called Jack, who is three and he is just beautiful. He loves going to pre-school and kindy, loves all the boys stuff, all the trucks and trees, he’s just got heaps of energy. Tell me about the Wider Earthquake Communities

Action Network, how did it come about? It was started by three people in the community, myself as one of lead facilitators. Basically we were there to speak on behalf of people struggling with their house being in the red zone, or other land issues including settlements with insurers. It actually ended up becoming a quite strong activist group, and any negotiations we tried to have were basically shut down. So in the end they forced the group to protest more to get people’s issues heard. How successful were those protests? We had varying success, in the

early days we showed some insurance companies up for what they were doing and what they really were. Some of the things they were offering was just wrong. The Government seemed to be happy to sit back and Canterbury be devastated. That really concerned many of us who were looking to help those in the communities. So do you think it’s a lot better today? No.

Even as we look around today. (Earthquake Minister) Gerry Brownlee talks about the Margaret Mahy Family Playground more than anything else when he is talking about Christchurch’s success. It’s his No 1 defence for questions on the recovery. When you talk to homeowners you realise there are still thousands and thousands who are still locked in insurance battles and fighting for a fair deal. It was the reason WeCan was formed, to give a voice to those who couldn’t. And what was your particular role in the whole setup? I was the media spokesman throughout that time, through two and a half years. During that time I was working full time as a counsellor and a reverend as well. So at the start of 2014 I kind of realised it was time to leave WeCan. From there I decided to focus more on the insurance companies and helping others get through their battles, and only wanted fairness for both sides.

earthquake battles I never fought for more than a policy would honour, only what a policy offered. We just looked for a fair honouring. We weren’t trying to get people rich when they were only entitled to so much, and we’ve found that the insurance companies have respected that. There are no guiding rules to ensure insurance companies treat people fairly, which is ridiculous to be honest. Hasn’t the recovery gone on long enough already? Absolutely it has. The nature of this recovery for insurance companies is about spinning a line to get through the year, spreading the recovery over 20 years. To have private homeowners waiting for that long is plain disgraceful, it’s not about people it’s about ensuring the Government’s books are kept healthy. I just find it really interesting that we can paint all kinds of artwork throughout the city but can’t have all of our people in houses. Do you have any spare time at all? Yes of course! I’m a school counsellor at Middleton Grange School. I really enjoy working

one-on-one with adolescents and seeing them grow. Getting an understanding of what they’re going through is really important. I think I have the skills to help them, and I really enjoy seeing them feel empowered. I mean a lot of them are still finding themselves in life and gaining an awareness about the world around them, so finding their way in life can be quite

difficult. I’ve been through a lot in my own life so I can kind of pass that wisdom on in a way. I can imagine in a job like that, you’d meet a lot of interesting people, anyone stand out in particular? There are a few that kind of stand out. I remember I was helping some boys, one I seem to remember was at the age of nine, and he was caught up in

his parents’ divorce. He was really quite an angry young man, and was really struggling with life in general, with his behaviour spinning out of control. In one session I asked him to paint a picture, and he painted what he said he always wanted to have, which was a Holden car and a girlfriend on his arm. That’s very cute.

Yes, it was. After he left school he sent me a picture on Facebook of him and his girlfriend and his Ford car which he had saved up to get, and he said he was going to get a Holden. I thought that was amazing. I’ve been involved with counselling since 1995, when I helped start up the Delta Community Support Trust. I’m sure on the other side of that spectrum though, there would be times where someone is asking for help and you wouldn’t know how to help them? It can be quite disheartening if you find a student that you can’t work out the thing that they are telling you is wrong. And that can stem from a whole number of things. It’s very hard even for a youth mental health worker, because they can also really struggle to help someone like that. It can be very sad to see teens on medication for mental illnesses as well. The stress of the quakes has been immense for some kids. Especially those who are coming from homes that are still unsettled. We’ll see that for many years to come I think.

Growing a legacy


ost of us remember shopping at Oderings as young children when our parents held our hand and the garden was an essential part of feeding the family; nowadays these customers, their children and their children’s children have helped grow Oderings into a garden centre dynasty spanning 10 stores nationwide. The challenge for Oderings started when they reassessed their branding and for this they needed help. This is where Strategy Design & Advertising became a fundamental partner to help reestablish and create the new branding. The main objective was to show existing and new customers the Oderings core values which are its knowledgeable staff, inspirational ideas, quality service and large selection. It was also important for the brand to demonstrate that Oderings is a trustworthy, honest and community minded family business which has stood the test of time. The new logo, the Oderings crest which represents its family tree, symbolises both family heritage and strength in nature. The fresh and contemporary colour palette helped build a foundation for the unique illustration development which is packed full of colour and vibrancy. These initiatives and many more have been introduced into the Oderings Garden Centres and at Cashmere the whole concept can be seen in full effect. The other challenge Oderings had is the current retail stores seemed to be an evolution of time, they had little to no cohesive elements and no two Oderings stores looked alike. Help was needed to focus the new branding developed by Strategy and bring discipline to the retails, giving them a unique Oderings style. This is where Hierarchy was introduced. Once they had an understanding of

The bright new look of Oderings in Cashmere

the Oderings customer needs they were able to approach the fit out with a flexible, modular solution which represented raw and honest natural finishes but still maintaining a warm colour tone. The store environment now focuses on the customer’s accessibility and shopping experience giving them relaxed and inviting areas to explore. The brand illustrations were the finishing touch, positioned on the floor, walls and ceilings adding colour and fun. Chris from Hierarchy is excited about Philpotts Rd and Barrington St stores, which will have more of a ‘shop within a shop

solution’. Oderings vision is to be the market leader in the New Zealand garden industry. To be innovative, inspirational and to develop the business while growing with its team, customers and community. With stage one complete at Cashmere Rd, and stage two well on its way (including a café to open in spring), and Philpotts Rd next on the list to receive an overdue facelift and café addition, Oderings feels it has the right combination of brand vision, promise and values to continue for another 87 years.

The new logo, the Oderings crest which represents its family tree, symbolises both family heritage and strength in nature.

Young gymnasts off to Pacific championships

Four gymnasts are to compete in the Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships next weekend. The Christchurch School of Gymnastics team will be heading to Everett in Washington, to compete against gymnasts from around the world. This event serves as a warmup meet for the Rio Olympic test event which follows on April 16-19 in Brazil. Courtney McGregor, of Halswell, will use this opportunity as

her final hit-out before she travels to Rio to try and get a placing for women’s gymnastics. Courtney is looking forward to competing since she has learnt more difficult vault routines. “I am looking forward to competing my new second vault – I added 0.30 difficulty so now I will be more competitive,” she said. This is the first time Stella Ashcroft, 13, of Hoon Hay, will be joining the New Zealand

team at the competition. Stella earned her place by being the top-ranked junior international in the country. “I’m pretty nervous because it’s such a big event, I’ve been training for roughly 26-30 hours a week, but I’m excited to go with the other girls, they’re my close friends.” Mackenzie Slee and Charlotte Sullivan will also be competing and have spent all summer training for the championships.

the salty tang of the chips and the sweetness of the icecream is a taste treat. The potato is certainly common and a staple worldwide. They are cheap, hardy and easy to grow, and are high in starch, protein and vitamins. They are also versatile.

New research on ginkgo biloba excites researchers


or decades scientists believed brain damage with age, after a stroke or injury was irreversible and brain neurons could not be repaired. In more recent times, new research has shown that neurons can grow back with the right conditions and that a special extract of gingko biloba (EGb-761 or Tebonin) has been clinically found to assist in this. The implications for stroke recovery are obvious, but researchers also know many of us suffer from undetected “micro-strokes” that over a period of time slowly reduce our cognitive function. Tebonin is prescribed worldwide as a natural supportive agent for a healthy brain and cognitive function. It supports healthy mental performance, concentration, focus, alertness, motor function and to help with many conditions, including tinnitus (ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo and normal balance. Tebonin improves microcirculation and helps the blood flow reach those critical places it needs to get to. It is a potent antioxidant and makes the red blood cells more pliable and capillary walls

more flexible. Tebonin is one of the most widely studied and researched herbal products in the world and is the only ginkgo biloba extract manufactured via a patented multi-step extraction process. Each small tablet contains a highly concentrated 50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic clinical dose without having to take a large amount of the herb. Of 25 ginkgo biloba products on the market and tested by a major medical journal, only Tebonin passed all five of the test requirements. Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements and the rest didn’t pass more than three out of five requirements. Tebonin is the only ginkgo biloba extract shown to activate all areas of the brain and is considered the gold standard in ginkgo. Tebonin has been trusted by millions of consumers worldwide for over 30 years, with more than 8,000,000 tablets consumed each day. Tebonin and further information is available from the natural health advisers at Marshall’s Health and Natural Therapy in New Brighton. Phone 388 5757. We are always happy to help!

Lady Wigram Village

Six-week course

Lady Wigram Retirement Village was officially opened a few short months ago and residents are already settled and feeling at home. About 19 of the first 50 villas are occupied, with a number of others under offer.


six-week course designed to teach self-management skills for people living with any chronic health condition, such as heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, depression, asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, mental health conditions, etc. This course does not offer disease-specific information, and is designed to work alongside other forms of treatment, rather than replace them. The course is run in a group setting for up to 15 participants. Support people and carers are also welcome to attend.

While we await the construction of the community centre, which is expected to open in April, residents can enjoy social events which include bowls through to high teas in a converted villa. With a short stroll to The Landing, the retail hub of Wigram Skies subdivision or a short drive to the Hornby Workingmen’s Club, Hornby Mall and the city, The Lady Wigram Retirement is well situated. Foundations have begun for the next 51 villas, expected to be ready in January 2017. Owner John Tooby says the aim is for the village to be the best in the city, offering an environment second to none. When completed, the village will include

101 villas, 73 apartment and 100 care beds, including rest home, hospital and dementia care facilities. Golden Healthcare provides general aged care at the Golden Age Retirement Village, the original facility acquired by John Tooby in 1985, and at the Brookhaven Retirement Village.

Effective treatment for many types of pain


omplementary medicine is becoming increasingly sought after in New Zealand as people become aware of the many different methods of treating pain and ill health that are available here. Christchurch-based Chinese health practitioner Lan Xiao has developed a method of treatment, which she says has as an immediate affect on a wide variety of pains and health conditions. It is known as ‘acupuncture without needles’. Lan describes it as being similar to reflexology in that the problem area on the body is determined through pressure, but is much more accurate. Trained as a medical practitioner in China, Lan came to New Zealand in 1992 and began practising acupuncture in 1995. From that discipline she created her acupuncture without needles, and uses it to treat people of all ages with many different types of pain in all parts of the body. This can include arthritic pain, MS, and pain from injury. “For example, the treatment has been very successful for people who have painful joints caused by arthritis,” Lan says. Acupuncture without needles is also effective in restoring energy levels,

she says. “As people age their energy is reduced, and this can lead to other health problems. The acupuncture without needles treatment is like the body’s battery being charged up again, so their energy levels are restored, which in turn helps overcome their health problems.” Lan also uses it to treat depression and anxiety, and says it can help with addiction problems as well. “After the treatment the person has no cravings – because it treats the cause of the addiction.” She says the results are immediate, though people may need several treatments, depending on the extent of their health problem, and while it is slightly painful for few moments, everyone can tolerate it. Lan Xiao’s website, www., includes videos of people whose health problems have been overcome after receiving the treatment. Her clinic is located at 108 Sawyers Arms Road, and her hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12pm to 5pm. To discuss your health issues or make an appointment, phone 323 4168 or 027 231 88388.

Servicing your heat pump is extremely important to ensure that it is working

as effectively and efficiently as possible resulting in a healthy, hygienic heat pump, lower power bills and greater comfort. But beware, not all cleaning companies are equal.

We at Enviro Master, are qualified engineers and therefore are able to fully test and diagnose any problems you may or may not be aware of with your heat pump. Also, as we are associated with all major brands, we are able to repair these under warranty if they are still within the warranty period. it is important to remember, when selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s warranty does not cover the installation and consumers could be responsible for any repair or damage caused to the system due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s five-star installation guarantee ensures correct installation, and a demonstration so customers have an understanding on how it will best meet their needs.

environment in which to live and work. in case of poor or insufficient air intake from outside, the oxygen content decreases, humidity and dustiness levels increase. if exhaust ventilation is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air, smells, humidity and harmful substances are not removed. Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel drowsy. invisible harmful substances like a high content of dust and tobacco smoke are harmful and can cause various diseases. Even bad smells can cause discomfort or irritate the nervous system. in summer, it’s easy to open windows for cross ventilation, however as winter approaches, we start to shut up out houses to trap in the heat and as a result, air quality can decline. it is therefore very important to ensure good air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

It gives me great pleasure to announce the name of our new organisation: Ara Institute of Canterbury. CPIT and Aoraki Polytechnic have been working together to form a single, Canterbury-wide educational institute that brings together the best aspects of both organisations. We’ve set out an ambitious vision for our new organisation. We want Ara to be a relevant, contemporary and viable contributor to individual and community prosperity throughout Canterbury. In establishing Ara, our promise to the Canterbury region is to provide better access to a greater number of programmes, in a larger number of centres, supported with better services for all. Ara is the Māori word for a path or journey. It represents the learning process and the routes and rivers that criss-cross Canterbury from the mountains to the sea. Students will continue to graduate with qualifications that are accredited by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority and held in high regard, both here and overseas. And they’ll be even better prepared for the workplace as we broaden and strengthen our links with industry. In the coming months and years, Ara will establish Centres of Excellence in a range of areas including health, primary industries, broadcasting, sustainable practice, tourism and trades. These nationally-focused hubs will engage with industry, attract local and international students and produce graduates of the highest calibre. We’re excited about our future as Ara Institute of Canterbury and we look forward to sharing it with you. Warm regards


Ara Institute of Canterbury is a vibrant, progressive and relevant tertiary option for a fast-changing world. We bring together the best knowledge, expertise and the greatest passion for teaching, to deliver a superior learning experience for our students, and the very best outcomes for our graduates, employers, and New Zealand.
