Tuesday August 16 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THE GLOVES are off for October’s local body elections with candidates for council and the community boards now known. But for sitting councillor Vicki Buck there’ll be no contest - she goes back onto the council table representing the Riccarton ward unopposed. In sport, Christchurch Boys’ High School have advanced to the grand final of the UC Championship following a 10-3 win over Nelson College. The team made amends for last year’s shock 17-25 semi-final exit to Shirley Boys’ High School. They will play the team that broke their hearts 12 months ago in Saturday’s grand final. And if you’re a train buff, Roy Sinclair profiles Neil Andrews, who has had a life long interest in model trains. Hei kona – Shelley Robinson

Sharing option for Denton Park „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding SPORT CLUBS at Denton Park may have their wish granted to stay on their home ground. However, it’s on the condition of sharing with the new Hornby Library and South West Recreation and Sport Centre. It has been disclosed, one of the options the city council is considering is to retain the sports clubs on Denton Park but possibly rearranging the sports fields to make room for the Hornby facility. This is if Denton Park is chosen as the location for the new Hornby Library and South West Recreation and Sport Centre. The news has come to surface after the city council recently completed scoping studies for the Hornby facility. The scoping studies provided the city council with guidance on how big the future library should be and what leisure amenities should be provided to the south-west in the future. But head of recreation and sports John Filsell said the sports clubs could still be moved to Kyle Park or Warren Park depending on what playing surfaces are relocated. In previous articles the Western News reported the likely

STAYING POSITIVE: Hornby Rugby Football Club president John Catchpole said as long as the sport clubs are not pushed off Denton Park he is not concerned if the sports fields need to be rearranged. ​ location for the Hornby facility is Denton Park. The opening of the new Hornby Library and South West Recreation and Sport Centre has been delayed until 2019 after the city council pushed back several community projects. Hornby Rugby Football Club president John Catchpole said the club received an email from the city council saying the best place for the pool is at Hornby High School. The city council’s general

manager of city services David Adamson said there will be consultation with the sports clubs on the rearrangement of the fields depending on what option is chosen. Mr Catchpole said as long as the city council does not shift the club off Denton Park then he is not too concerned by a rearrangement of the sports fields. “It is better than having our fields taken away and having a swimming pool put there, I know that now,” he said.

But Hornby Cricket Club president Kevin Hornbrook said if the city council relocates the sports clubs it will be the end of Hornby cricket. He said the cricket club uses the whole of Denton Park. “Our other biggest problem again with it going to Denton Park is where the public is going to park . . . The Hub Hornby is chaos now,” he said. The rugby club has three fields at Denton Park while the cricket club has two pitches.

In Brief JELLIE PARK SPA POOL CLOSED The spa pool at Jellie Park Recreation and Sport Centre has been closed until further notice after one water sample out of seven tested positive for Legionella bacterium. The pool was closed last week after receiving test results from the Canterbury District Health Board. Staff are decontaminating and servicing the spa pool and it will remain closed until testing confirms the Legionella bacterium is not present. Other swimming pool services at Jellie Park, Pioneer and Graham Condon Recreation and Sport Centres are not affected. FUNDING SOUGHT Papanui teenager Angus McWilliam has applied for $518 from the Shirley-Papanui Community Board’s discretionary response fund towards attending the Junior Tall Blacks training camp and U23 Nationals. Angus, 16, currently attends Middleton Grange and is in year 12. Burnside High School student Connor Hill has also applied for $200 from the board’s youth development fund towards him participating in the Spirit of Adventure Trophy Voyage from October 30 to November 3. The board will decide tomorrow if they approve the funding.

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A BULLDOZER that was once a workhorse in Antarctica which now sits in a children’s playground, will get a makeover. The DC4 Caterpillar in Harrington Park, near Paeroa Reserve, in Riccarton, was based with the US Navy at McMurdo Station on the south tip of Ross Island. Resident Ken Twemlow and retired panelbeater Wayne Charney are now working to get the bulldozer sandblasted and repainted. But the cost of sandblasting is between $900-$1600 with the further cost of painting. The bulldozer was built by Caterpillar in Orlando, United States, and was flown to McMurdo Station to work as a general workhorse tractor. It was brought back to the city on an icebreaker ship to the city. Gough Group training and development manager Steve Templer said the bulldozer did not do anything notable such as a specific expedition. He said it most likely looked after Williams Field, an airfield serving McMurdo Station and Scott Base. “The reason being is it doesn’t have the big wide tracks for going across the ice like a lot of them do. So it wouldn’t have gone too far from home I don’t think,” he said.

HARCOURTS CANTERBURY

SINCE 2012

MAKEOVER: Riccarton residents Ken Twemlow (left) and retired panelbeater Wayne Charney are behind a plan to restore an Antarctic bulldozer.

It was brought back to the city about 40 years ago by the US Navy and was said to be in need of major overhaul. The Western News learnt from mechanics at Goughs Group that they are certain the bulldozer came to the city in the early 1970s. Mr Templer said since McMurdo Station was set up, tractors have been getting brought back from Antarctica to the city to be overhauled by the Gough Group. He said it was donated to Harrington Park through the Riccarton Rotary Club by the then local US base commander. At the time two D4Cs were brought back from McMurdo Station. “They made a good one out

of two and this had all the bad parts so they thought they would send it off as a play thing in a children’s playground,” he said. It is believed the district commander was not technically allowed to donate the bulldozer due to the US Navy having a rules about disposing equipment even if it is non-combat. The Goughs then painted the bulldozer for free back to it’s original colours before shipping it off to Harrington Park. Mr Churney said the plan is for the children living near the park to help paint the bulldozer in the summer. He said the project most likely won’t get under way for a while depending on finances and the Riccarton West Community is looking for sponsorship.

Our People

Singer-songwriter has Singer-songwriter Asti-Loren Newman might only be 18, but she has already travelled the world and attended the same school as Amy Winehouse. Annabelle Dick talked to Asti-Loren about her new album, Psychedelic Rose, and getting barred from the school choir thanks to a questionable comment about her teacher’s facial hair. So as a singer-songwriter, when did you get into music? I’ve always had a massive passion for music. When I was about 11-years-old, I joined the Christchurch City Chorus, which is like a 150-person barbershop. We went to New York and sung when I was 13, which was awesome. I worked with Nolan from the Christchurch School of Rock in Sumner and would perform at the Headless Mexican. I’d also do busking along the esplanade. I tried

to join the school choir but got turned down in year 6, 7 and 8, because apparently I couldn’t sing in tune, but I think it was because I told my music teacher she had a moustache in front of the whole class. I told her my mum is a beauty therapist and

TALENTED: Asti-Loren busked her way through Europe at 17-years-old.

she should go to her and I think she held that against me. It was a pretty rude thing for me to say, but I was only nine-years-old at the time, so I didn’t know any better. I was pretty upset about it so I went to the principal and told them, ‘I’m setting up my own barbershop; I’m getting my own teacher to come and teach it and I’m going to teach it as well’ and I had more people auditioning for it than the school choir. I’ve always been the kind of person that, if things don’t go my way, I’m going to make it happen for myself. You attended the same music school as Amy Winehouse – how did that come about? When the February 2011 earthquake happened, I was off school, our house was quite damaged and my mum lost her business as well. I watched the film Fame one day and I knew I wanted to go to stage school. So without telling my parents, I researched the best stage schools across the United States and the United Kingdom and I randomly chose one to apply for. I heard

MENTOR: Asti-Loren mentoring Selwyn House Girls School children last year.

back four days later from the Susi Earnshaw Theatre School with a letter of acceptance. Here’s 14-year-old me going, ‘oh no, what have I done’, so I had to tell my parents and they were really supportive. I don’t know many parents who would let their 14-year-old daughter go to the UK by themselves. What was it like attending the school? It was awesome. I was the first person they’d ever had from Australia/New Zealand. There was three days a week of dance, tap, jazz singing, theatre singing, pop singing, all sorts really. The teachers were great and really young, too. One of my teachers was a back-up dancer for Justin Bieber and he’d also won Britain’s Got Talent. I studied there for two years and then I got offered a development contract with a label in Soho and that’s how I met my producer Chris Hall who helped me create my album

Psychedelic Rose. I got to record in the same vocal booth as Pink Floyd. How did it feel living in London by yourself as a 14-yearold? That must’ve been a pretty scary experience? It wasn’t too scary . . . but being so young and moving to another country was a bit of a culture shock. I had an apartment just down from school and I made friends really fast. There was always people I knew around me like my uncle in Sweden and my cousin came through when he was on his O.E. I wasn’t really naughty I always had so much to do. I would go to the London Central City Library and read books on Woodstock. I went to an Audrey Hepburn exhibition and I’d often go to the East London markets at the end of the day and they’d give me free donuts. They knew when I was coming and give me all this free food and I’d walk home with all my groceries.

the world at her feet And you travelled a bit from there? I’m really spontaneous so I decided to do a busking tour around Europe. So I contacted Interrail and Eurail to see if it was something they were interested in – they bought it. So they gave us a 12-day rail pass and we went from London to Stockholm to Copenhagen down to Warsaw in Poland and then to Prague then Munich, Salzburg, Venice, Asti, Monte Carlo, Nice and then Amsterdam all in 12 days with my best friend who’s a New Zealand windsurfer. While this was happening I was only 17. I have about 50,000 fans online so I’d post each day were I was and I’d have all these people turn up – I didn’t really expect it at all. I made about €200 (euro) busking in each city. So tell me about your music and your new album Psychedelic Rock which you recently released? The music I’ve established as my brand is more electronic. This album is influenced by the 60s and 70s Americana, Woodstock and that whole

hippy movement. I love the era. I watched Jim Carroll’s The Basketball Diaries and read a novel he wrote . . . it’s really raw. This album draws a lot from that. This album is a concept album I’ve written myself. It goes from dark to light as I have this thing called synaesthesia where I see music and colour so it helps a lot with my writing, it’s a bit of a blessing. I wrote the album’s track names before I wrote the songs. I’ve written a novel to go along with the album and eventually I want to make it into a short film. People can interpret my music any way they want. They’re not pop songs – it’s a lot more than that. I don’t just sit back and let other people do things for me, I’m a really involved person in my career so I do a lot of promoting myself, I keep up my social media following and I edit my own videos. Do you have any influences that you draw on when creating your sound? I listen to Lana del Rey, The xx, Haim, Taylor Swift, Marina and the Diamonds, Fleetwood Mac,

One man and his 1000 dreams „„ By Roy Sinclair NEIL ANDREWS leads the way down precarious steps to a seemingly underground room. He flicks on a light switch. I am wowed by a high viaduct spanning a realistic gorge. My eyes are led to tall forests, tree ferns galore and a painted backdrop depicting a stormy sky. “This is what I do,” he says. “It is not what I do in my spare time. “I mow the lawns in my spare time.”  The room was purpose-built for the 9mm (scale 9mm to the foot) layout representative of a one-time railway in Northland.  In his garage he is working on a second, portable, layout. This is a narrow-gauge railway based on French townscapes. Model railways is an interest he could not be without.  “When I met my partner, Helen, I told her it is me and my trains. They are inseparable.  “She accepted that which was great.”   He describes railway modelling “as a thousand dreams held together by a hundred unfinished jobs. In other words, a degree of chaos.” “Part of the fascination is

He always liked to do things with his hands. He enjoyed art at school – and building things. Even when he had clockwork

railways he was always cutting up cardboard boxes to make buildings. He recalls scoring designs on pieces of wood to make boats. Railways became another part of it. Getting into more serious rail-

BUILDING: A train layout under construction and a G-scale layout at last year’s Christchurch Model Train Show.

“There we found towns of beautiful buildings with terracotta roofs. We had discovered the romance of the French countryside. “Anything French is different. If you see a French car you know it is French because it looks nothing like anything else. It is the same with railways. “Their narrow gauge railways were basically portable. They could be picked up and laid beside a road. “That really intrigued me. Narrow gauge secondary lines were introduced to boost the network

of French railways.’’ The unplanned detour instigated his French narrow gauge layout. “One develops a modeller’s mind.   “A modeller will typically think how it would look in miniature?” He talks about Hamburg’s mind-boggling Miniature Wonderland. “It’s absolutely intriguing. It’s a huge collection that is pushing the boundaries of technology and inspiring manufacturers to pick up on it with new products.” “The model aircraft must represent the peak of model

building.’’ “The model trains have been running for so long the track is wearing out.” The closest we have in Christchurch is the annual big model train Show, this year being held over the weekend of October 1 and 2. The venue is Pioneer Stadium in Lyttelton St, Spreydon. It is the show’s 25th anniversary so promises to be special. Mr Andrews was an instigator of the event, starting a model train show at Hagley Community College and then expanding to

the Horticultural Society hall. Then, the Christchurch Model Railway Exhibition Society was formed and took over. Its growth took it to Pioneer Stadium where it has been ever since. At its peak the show attracted 10,000 people over the two days.  “It’s about its optimum size.   “Considering our modest Christchurch population we do a pretty good job,” he said.

SCHOOLS

New school bus routes RANGI RURU Girls’ School has announced a trial of a new Red Bus services for students in south-west Canterbury. The initiative came from parents who were having difficulties getting their children to school using existing routes. Principal Sandra Hastie said the school is very supportive of effective public transport and having students on a bus, using bus lanes as well as other measures. “There’s already too little time and too much stress in many lives, so if we can alleviate that for parents and students that’s a good thing,” she said. The bus, which is identifiable by a ‘Rangi Ruru school bus’ sign, departs Burnham at 6.35am, with five points from which students can be picked up or get off at Rolleston, Lincoln University, Lincoln, Tai Tapu and Halswell.

The bus arrives at the school by 8.10am and returns at 4pm for pick up. It ends the day in Burnham at 5.20pm. Rangi Ruru business manager Neil Templeton said Red Bus has been very co-operative during the development of the service trial. “We are open to suggestions for improvements during the trial and are encouraging parents and students to give us feedback.” Fares are $7.50 return or $4 oneway and students use their Cando Card as they would for any metro bus. The card can be topped up with the driver. Dr Hastie said the service was also available to students from other Christchurch schools and parents should contact Rangi Ruru to register their son or daughter. She added that, all going well, the intention was to continue the service.

Sports kits stand out „„ By Andrew King BURNSIDE PRIMARY School pupils have flash new sports uniforms thanks to a $5000 fundraising effort by the parent teacher association and donations. The school was supplied more than 100 new uniforms for sports teams, including rugby, hockey, netball, soccer and athletics. Sports co-ordinator Peter Chaplin said it would make their pupils stand out on sports day.

“We host over 120 children every Friday as part of a local sports competition, along with teams travelling to Nunweek Park and Hagley Park to play in the weekly winter primary school sports competition,” he said.

All the uniforms have an image of Hine Taio imprinted on the right shoulder. The school’s Hine Taio carving underpins the values and curriculum of Burnside Primary.

DANCE ACHIEVEMENT: Halswell Primary School pupils danced their way into qualifying for the NZCAF National Championships in Dunedin on September 16. ​

Dancers qualify for national champs HALSWELL Primary School’s senior hip-hop dance team has qualified for the national dance championships. The New Zealand Competitive Aerobic Foundation competition will be held on

September 16 in Dunedin. The hip-hop team qualified after taking part in the regional competition held in the city recently. The team came second in both their heats.

The senior hip-hop team consisted of pupils Keisha Jones, Cailin McVicar, Ruby Friedel, Mya Wolfenden, Jasmine Kouissemou, Mihirangi Freeman, Madison Patuwai and Bridget Savage.

Market Day success

Term 2 ended on an exciting note with a Year 7 and 8 market day. Students had worked throughout the term on designing a product to market and sell. They learnt many skills related to running a business and made products to sell on their stalls. On market day there was a huge support from parents and whanau, and local primary schools as well as the staff and students at Hornby High. Many of the businesses sold all of their products and measured their success with generous profits.

Hornby High students were part of a group of 50 students from around the country who met in Auckland to participate Te Wero Pakihi – The Business Challenge. All students attending Te

Let’s keep Chch fluoride-free Former personal trainer John Verd was born in Christchurch’s sister city Seattle, United States, and moved to New Zealand in January last year. He writes this week’s opinion piece on fluoridation I love Christchurch water! It’s one of the many exceptional things we’d heard about the Garden City before moving here. So I was naturally concerned to learn about proposed changes to our water system. I discovered at an early age how location could affect water quality. When my grand-mother moved to the Cascade Mountains near Seattle, she said that the tap water there had a ”sweetness” to it. She was absolutely right there was a huge difference between our aquifers in Spokane and her spring water in Snoqualmie. It wasn’t until much later that I paid any attention to what is actually in our water. I’d heard people protest against fluoridation, but wrote them off as paranoid con-

spiracy theorists. It wasn’t until becoming a personal trainer that I actually questioned the practice. The research was eye opening. Our water is being treated with an industrial waste product called hydrofluorosilicic acid. This chemical is a by-product of the phosphate fertiliser industry. Although classified as hazardous waste, it is barrelled up and sold, unrefined, to communities across the country. This is the fluoride in public water. Former vice president and senior chemist at the United States Environmental Protection Agency headquarters, Dr William Hirzy, had this to say about it: “If this stuff gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant.

amazing.” Hydrofluorosilicic acid is far different from the sodium fluoride, which is not for ingestion, commonly used in toothpaste. This begs the question: Why would they use this dangerous form of fluoride? A likely reason is cost. Because it costs corporations many thousands of dollars per tonne to neutralise and dispose of it, they instead sell it to municipalities as a ‘product’. Chemist and worldrenowned fluoride researcher Dr Paul Connett lectured in Christchurch in July 2016. He listed 50 human studies

finding that elevated fluoride exposure is associated with reduced IQ. Christchurch has managed to remain fluoride free for the last 30 years, but new legislation may allow for fluoridation by 2018 unless the public demands a place at the table in this decision. And that’s what is keeping me up at night. Do you, like John Verd, stay awake at night worried about fluoridation? Should we allow fluoridation of our water? Share your views with us.

CBHS advance to rugby final „„ By Gordon Findlater CHRISTCHURCH BOYS’ High School have advanced to the grand final of the UC Championship following a 10-3 win over Nelson College. The team made amends for last year’s shock 17-25 semi-final exit to Shirley Boys’ High School. They will play the team that broke their hearts 12 months ago in Saturday’s grand final at Rugby Park. Shirley defeated round-robin winners Christ’s College 17-14 at Upper in the other semi-final. The teams also have recent history, they met on August 7. CBHS survived a late penalty attempt from Shirley before a try in extra time sealed a tough 19-13 victory. “They proved in beating Christ’s College that they’re going to be a really serious threat. They played very well against us the other week so we’re going to have to be at our very best because they have some seriously good players in that team,” said CBHS coach Mike Drury. The win over Nelson College was played in trying conditions. CBHS came out with intent, dominating the early possession and turning down penalty goal attempts in search of the game’s first try. They were rewarded for their efforts when Mosese Fifita

SPORTS

TRY TIME: Mosese Fifita grabbed the only try of the game in his team’s 10-3 victory over Nelson College. ​

At a glance: Christchurch BHS: 10 (Mosese Fifita try; Alex Harford 1 con, 1pen) Nelson College: 3 (William Havili 1 pen) barged his way over the line with 10min to play in the first half. First-five Alex Harford converted and then extended the lead to 10 with a penalty conversion before the break. Nelson played with the wind in the second period and narrowed the margin to seven through a William Havili penalty. Christchurch executed an

outstanding game plan in the second half, not letting the visitors back into the game through strategic kicking. “I thought that second-five Ben Chippendale played a very astute game. He showed the quality of a senior player on the team. He racked off some pretty substantial yards and put them on the back foot a number of times,”

said Drury. Meanwhile, in the plate section of the competition it will be Timaru Boys’ High School hosting Marlborough Boys’ College in Saturday’s final. Timaru defeated defending Plate champions Burnside High School 25-15, while Marlborough overpowered Waimea Combined 19-0.

Fresh and flavoursome vietnamese food Bruce and Lisa Tran, and their staff at Hello Vietnam, are excited their restaurant has been voted one of the top 30 restaurants in Christchurch (out of a field of 660 restaurants), on Trip Advisor’s Internet site. Bruce puts the restaurant’s success down to the high quality food and excellent service provided by his staff and manager, ThyThy. Hello Vietnam began in February 2015 and has been a popular and busy restaurant ever since. “We serve traditional Vietnamese cuisine that sits between Thai and Chinese,” says Bruce. “It’s not too spicy or oily and has a French influence with the incorporation of fresh salad items in many dishes like our fresh spring rolls, and salads of beef, prawn or pork.”

Flavours synonymous with Vietnamese cuisine are coriander, lemongrass, ginger, Vietnamese mint, chilli and basil while vegetables in cooked dishes such as the restaurant’s Lemongrass and Chicken retain a crisp fresh taste, especially as the vegetables are purchased fresh each day. Pho rice noodle soup is another popular dish with both Asian and European diners at Hello Vietnam as is their roast duck, which has different spices to those in Chinese duck recipes. They cook just enough roast duck for each day, so it is a good idea to call in early or ring ahead if wanting this particular dish. “Stewed Jumble Prawns in a sauce which we make for this dish is ideal for sharing a meal and for a difference sweet and sour Vietnamese style dishes are really nice,” recommends Bruce. Hello Vietnam caters for those with particular dietary needs with around 85% of their dishes gluten free. This includes the Vietnamese Pancakes which are made from rice flour, and they will prepare gluten free options on request for other dishes such as Crispy Squid, cooking these in separate fryers. Dishes are priced from $8.50 for an entrée. Noodle dishes range from $13-16 and medium sized dishes $13$18, while delicacies such as Crispy King Prawn with Salad and Chilli Salt are priced around $20.

Ensuring a safe work place Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Experts restore that “winning smile” Meeting people for the first time, interacting with others on social occasions, going for a job interview – in all these situations your smile is the most important part of you. or perhaps, on a lighter note, you might be scaring yourself with your ‘selfie’ because your smile is not as attractive as it should be, due to missing or broken teeth. perhaps it’s time for a visit to Denture South in Barrington, where the experts can give you that winning smile back. Clinical technician Andrew Johnson and his team of clinical and lab technicians are fully focused on providing customised service at their Barrington clinic, and will take all the time needed to fulfill your partial or full denture requirements whether you want an even, bright smile or a more natural-looking one. For people who have had dentures for a while and are finding they frequently need to buy denture adhesive to keep them in place, Andrew advises having the dentures relined so they will fit better. As he points out, the money spent on denture adhesive over 12 months would easily cover the cost of having your dentures refitted. Denture South has been providing a full range of denture services for the residents

of Christchurch for over 13 years. These services include first-time immediate dentures, full replacement dentures, partial plates and sports mouth-guards. Many Denture South clients come through word-of-mouth referral, an indication of the level of satisfaction that’s provided there. Friendly, approachable and highly skilled, the Denture South team enjoys helping people with all their denture fitting, ongoing care and denture maintenance requirements.

Get rid of dampness in your house

noW WITH the colder and wetter weather on its way, home owners are focusing on ways to make their homes comfortable, warm and healthy for their families throughout winter. rISIng 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. Independent tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the ground and enter a house every day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation and musty smells. 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. Specially adapted for our new Zealand conditions and applications it provides a layer of protection against rising moisture. 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 liquefaction after the earthquakes. Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote and complimentary appraisal of your underfloor ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or 0508 362626 for more information.

VenTILATIon This includes both the exchange of air to the outside as well as circulation of air within the building.

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.

Driven

Tackle the skifield road in an Alltrack „„ By Ross Kiddie STAR MEDIA, the company which I am employed by, embraces advertising creativity. We strive for layout and design which captures reader and viewer interest. That being the case, I was mystified when Volkswagen New Zealand’s recent television advertising campaign was withdrawn when some viewers complained to the Broadcasting Standards Authority. The commercial surrounded Volkswagen’s Passat Alltrack, and was a light-hearted take involving a person falling over backwards on a slippery boat launching ramp. That ad often had me smiling when I was preparing dinner and watching the news. I was disappointed – world gone mad – I thought. That aside, the Alltrack is an interesting variation on the popular mid-size wagon and as its name suggests it has four-wheeldrive and suspension raised 27mm from the standard Passat. Volkswagen is no stranger to this concept, they have long had models which have just that little bit extra in terms of ability. The Alltrack is a cross between an everyday vehicle and one which will take you off-road, not so much in the serious stuff, but it

will get you out of a sticky, low grip situation, hence the advertisement. And on that subject, it also gets a 2.2-tonne tow rating, so hauling that large boat is a real probability. Under the bonnet sits a 2-litre, turbocharged diesel engine. The four-cylinder, twin camshaft unit is rated with 150kW and 400Nm, the latter punching out its power all of the way from 1900rpm to 3300rpm; consequently, it is a strong, energetic unit which works through a dual clutch, direct shift gearbox. VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT ALLTRACK: Grip for slippery surfaces. The six-speeder allows the engine to work freely, between the 6.6l/100km (43mpg) figure difference, grip is well promoted the two, drive is unimpeded, showing constantly on the dash through Continental sport tyres the mid-range diesel surge is panel readout.

utmost traction is gleaned. I can see the Alltrack being used as winter sport recreational transport such as tackling the skifield access road. It’s a vehicle that does all the things a typical sport utility vehicle is capable of, yet it is packaged in a more traditional style. The entire in-cabin area is manufactured for comfort and is decked out with all the features you’d expect from a $57,990 car. I’ve long embraced the traditional station wagon, especially those from Europe. The Alltrack takes that concept one step forward and I’m pleased that it has such a strong foothold globally (no pun intended). I’ll be watching with interest how well it is received here.

‘Famous for their roasts!’

Local musician, Dizzy Height is proud to announce the completion of his latest recording, Passing Shadows. “It's safe to say that this album is very, very different and deals with a topic not many are game to talk about let alone record an album about, and that is the subject of death,” says Dizzy Height. “Having worked as an Embalmer/Funeral Director for 9 years I have seen a lot of death. The inspiration for the album is based on my many experiences.” Consisting of nine tracks, the recording is said to be a very thought provoking and inspiring CD. Written, performed, and produced by Dizzy Height, the tracks feature a unique blend of classically inspired pieces infused with traditional rock guitar. From the opening title track 'Passing Shadows' to the final track 'After Life' the album has a positive theme which encompasses all the things that most people have thought about at some stage.
