School staffing concerns „„ By Fraser Walker-Pearce ARANUI PRIMARY School has lost 60 per cent of its full-time staff in the last two terms in the lead up to the opening of Haeata Community Campus. This brings the total loss of teachers for the year to 11 at a school that only employs 10 fulltime staff. Relieving teachers have been brought in. At the end of the school year Aranui High, along with Aranui, Avondale and Wainoni primary

schools will be closed and superschool Haeata opened on the Aranui High site. Principal Mike Allen (right) said some pupils have had three teachers this year, creating uncertainty in an already worried school community. “It’s not good. They were worried about who would be looking after them, and their parents were worried too. Once that gets sorted out then it’s fine but until then it’s hard for them,� he said.

Six of the school’s 10 full-time staff members have resigned in the last two terms and been recruited by Haeata, with a seventh set to follow next month. Canterbury Primary Principals’ Association president Jeanette Shearer said the high staff turnover rate would be “unsettling� for pupils, and the main task for the four closing schools would be to give their families a sense of continuity. “Other schools have helped out by loaning a teacher for a

while until the end of a term and things like that. It is a difficult time for all of those schools during the transition,� she said. The school is now operating largely on relief and cover staff for its final term. Mr Allen said the loss of staff had been a headache, but not one the school wasn’t prepared for. “It’s quite a big bite [of our staff] and it’s been a headache but it’s been well handled, and the appointment process that Haeata went through gave us plenty of warning for that,� he said.

Ministry of Education sector enablement and support Katrina Casey said the ministry is aware that as closures approach there is the risk of “higher than normalâ€? staff turnover. “We are in close regular contact with the four schools and will respond to their needs as they arise,â€? she said. Haeata principal Andy Kai Fong, Avondale and Wainoni primary schools and Aranui High did not respond to calls from Pegasus Post. •Haeata’s new uniform, p4

Tuesday October 4 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

BETTY CHAPMAN and her crew over at the Wainoni Avonside Community Trust are brewing up more than a cup of tea this week. They’re the driving force behind a community garden, with the aim of distributing fresh fruit and veges among residents once it is up and running (page 3). Voting in the local body elections closes at noon on Saturday. For anyone still trying to make up their mind in the Linwood Ward, we have our final question to the candidates on page 7. As of yesterday, voter turnout in the Burwood and Coastal wards was about 21 per cent, with Linwood slightly behind on 19 per cent. Please get out and vote. Your vote decides which candidates will have the responsibility for lobbying for your area. Hei kona – Shelley Robinson

Green light for garden

„„ By Fraser Walker-Pearce A COMMUNITY garden is coming to Wainoni after the city council gave it the green light. The city council granted the Wainoni Avonside Community Services Trust just under 1000 sq m at the rear of the Wainoni Scouts den on Avonside Dr, across the road from Porritt Park, to work with for at least the next five years. The trust aims to complete the garden project before Christmas. It will have vegetables and fruit grown especially to distribute to the community, with the help of gardening writer Rachel Vogan. “It’ll be a greatly positive thing for the community – especially after watching how devastated people were after basically their lives and homes were taken away from them,” the trust’s co-ordinator Betty Chapman said. Mrs Chapman hopes residents will take ownership of the garden at a community launch, taking place at the site this Saturday from noon until 2pm.

“We’ll get the community involved, because we want them to name it too. It’s their garden, just under our umbrella. The launch will be held at the garden site,” she said. The garden’s approval comes after the trust was awarded $30,000 from the Red Cross to go towards the garden’s expenses. The money was given to the trust on the condition that it

would be used before December otherwise it must be returned. “A short time after [the earthquakes] I thought we’ve got all that space, why not use it? The Red Cross approached us, we proposed our idea and amazingly they came up with the money,” Mrs Chapman said. City councillor Glenn Livingstone said he is looking forward to seeing the garden


COMING SOON: The city council has given a community garden in Wainoni the go-ahead. City councillor Glenn Livingstone says it will promote healthy eating. ​ up and running and promoting healthy eating. “I’d love to see the gardens joined with other local fruit and vegetable co-ops,” he said. “It’ll also promote healthier eating for the surrounding community, and provide access to good food.” The group ask that anyone wanting to donate spare gardening equipment or plants bring them to the launch.

Your Local Views

Elections breed new ideas Southshore Residents’ Association chairman Bill Simpson talks about the merit behind electioneering ideas. When the Wright brothers made experimental flights near their home town, news media showed no interest. Residents told stories about a machine in the sky, but news staff would not believe the stories and never checked them out. As a local editor said: “I guess the truth is that we were just plain dumb.” They missed one of the biggest stories in modern history. Sometimes I wonder if we miss the significance of the events around us. Take the current local body elections for example. There are some brilliant ideas being suggested by candidates but we tend to dismiss them as electioneering and, therefore, not worthy of further investigation. Free buses? Has the idea been checked out? We would probably say it is up to the candidate to give us the costs and show us how it would work. Actually, the concept has been around for a long time and is a reality in some parts of the

world. There are several transport planners (employed by various councils) who could readily give us a very clear picture of the costs and benefits. But will we hear from them during this election? Probably not, for obvious reasons. If candidates with good ideas do not get elected, then will their ideas die? Let’s hope not. In the current elections, there do seem to be fewer candidates and less public discussion. One

of the results could be that we lose diversity. But for a better future, we need diverse opinions, attitudes, perceptions and ideas. As George Patton said: “If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.” Wouldn’t it be great if we could somehow capture all the good ideas and nurture them beyond the point-scoring process of an election? It would take some courage – after all, who wants to champion the raving of a failed candidate after voting has stopped. Perhaps then, we should look for candidates who are open to all good ideas and not just their own. These would be candidates who are able to listen and are able to guide good ideas to fruition.

News Piece of surf club history returns „„ By Ian Stuart LONG TIME North Beach surf club member David East is nearing the end of a lifesaving mission be began almost 10 years ago. Mr East, 64, is a city councillor and life member of the North Beach Surf Lifesaving Club. With his son Jamie, 32, the club captain, he has been restoring an old surf lifesaving reel for the club’s centennial celebrations at Labour weekend. Surf lines and reels were once the mainstay of surf lifesaving patrols on all New Zealand beaches. The reel was found abandoned and in bits behind a toilet block in Gore Bay about 20 years ago and sat in pieces in Mr East’s garage. He began restoring it about 10 years ago and said it would be ready to take pride of place at the club’s centennial celebrations. “We have got no idea of the history of the reel or how it came to be dumped in Gore Bay, but it is a precious piece of lifesaving history and it will now live on forever at the North Beach club,” he said. The reel is thought to be 60 or 70-years-old. When the club was first established 100 years ago,

PROJECT COMPLETE: Jamie and his father David East try out the surf reel they have worked on for the past 10 years. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

the only lifesaving equipment it had was a line and reel just like the one being restored by Mr East and his son. Lifesavers would wear a belt and tow a line out to swimmers in distress. The line was paid out from the reel but the original belt had cork floats, which were abandoned when it was found they put the lifesaver’s life in danger. The reels remained unchanged for nearly 90 years

until they were phased out of both lifesaving patrols and competitions and other lifesaving gear was introduced, including rescue tubes, inflatable rescue boats and jet skis. At surf lifesaving carnivals, reels were used in four and sixman rescue and resuscitation competitions and in march pasts, but very few reels now remain in New Zealand clubs. Mr East, who joined the North Beach club in 1970, said the

demise of the reels was probably inevitable, but there was a movement within surf lifesaving to have them brought back to competition, possibly without the same level of training. “When I joined the club, we had reels, a surf boat and a couple of canoes. We could not afford much else and to do a patrol you had to know how to swim through the surf with a belt on and towing a line paid out from the reel,” he said.

“To do that you had to be fit. So the reels performed two vital functions apart from helping with rescues. They kept us swimming fit and to use them properly, we had to able to read the surf and find the best, the quickest and safest way out to a swimmer in trouble.” The reel was missing several parts when it was found in Gore Bay but they have been replaced or remanufactured and the reel has been repainted in the club colours of black and white. “It sat in pieces in the back of my garage for 10 years and every now and then I would do some work on it, but the pressure is now on to have it done for the club’s 100-year celebrations,” Mr East said. The cost of restoring the reel is being met by the family of Ron “Sharky” Kennedy, the patron of the club when he died aged 94 in 2014. The reel is likely to be a joint memorial for Mr Kennedy and another North Beach stalwart, Alan Dalton, who was considered one of the best surf lifesavers to use a belt and line in the country. Dalton was the first man to win a New Zealand individual belt title two years running in 1936 and 1937.

Students’ Coast to Coast challenge gets a boost A GROUP of Linwood College students have won a huge boost to their Coast to Coast race training in the lead up to next year’s event. Linwood’s team of nine recently won the Kathmandu Coast to Coast schools’ base camp academy package. The package includes Kathmandu clothing, Salomon shoes, race entry and a personalised training programme created by the nine-time race winner Steve Gurney. The team, called the Coast to Coast Rangers, will also receive mentoring to support them in their quest to complete the endurance race in February next year. The group has been training together since May and can now look forward to a personal training guide from Gurney designed specifically for the Coast to Coast race. The prize was created after three Aranui High School students competed in this year’s race alongside multi-sport professionals like three-time event winner Emily Miazga, and world champion adventure racer Nathan Fa’avae. When February rolls around, only three of the nine students in the Coast to Coast Rangers will participate in the race and


SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN The school holidays are upon us again and eastern children participated in a range of fun activities. Pupils at the Christchurch School of Gymnastics holiday programme had a day of building Lego. They built gym apparatus and creative critters. Meanwhile, at Te Wero Gymnastics, the pupils got involved in learning skills on the gym floor and on the balancing beam – but not before they warmed themselves up. And at the Youth Alive Trust, the children swung on swings at a local park before heading off to the Flip Out Trampoline Arena.

the rest will form the support crew. Team member Eden Pettigrew, 17, said the package was a huge boost which will help get the team across the line. “We are so excited to be chosen as the winners of the base camp academy package. It gives us a boost to know that we are being backed by the Kathmandu Coast to Coast team and will be supported in our goal to get to the finish line. “I know the race is going to be physically and mentally challenging, but it helps we have some of the best gear and equipment to do it in,” Pettigrew said.

BALANCING BEAM: Lily from Te Wero Gymnastics had to hold her balance while waiting for the ball to be thrown.

Key Linwood Ward projects Elections 16 With voting in local elections coming to a close on October 8, Pegasus Post is asking candidates their views on topical issues within the community. We asked candidates if they think the Linwood Ward has had its fair share of revitalisation projects. We also asked them what they would do, if elected, to increase or decrease the amount of work going into the Linwood Ward? Alexandra Davids, Linwood Ward city council and community board candidate The entire east, including the Linwood Ward feels forgotten. We were hit harder by the earthquakes than other areas. It defies belief that roads in significantly less affected suburbs are being re-sealed while ours remain largely broken. My greatest frustration is not seeing anyone standing up strongly for us, which I intend to do if elected. If elected, I will engage with our community to better understand our needs, wants and priorities. I will relentlessly advocate for us at the city council and I’ll deliver the pool that we, the HagleyFerrymead Community Board, have been successful in getting $20m on budget for.

Yani Johanson, Linwood Ward city council candidate I have a proud record of achievements in the Linwood Ward. Under my leadership, this term of city council has committed to prioritising local communities. These include revitalising the Garrick Park and Linfield sports fields, repairing the Woolston War Memorial pavilion, opening a joint community centre in Wainoni, getting flooding mitigation works underway, a Woolston Village master plan, rebuilding the Woolston Library and a transitional library at Eastgate. As well as safety improvements for Bromley and Te Waka Unua schools, and funding for a Linwood/Woolston pool.

Scott Toomey, Linwood Ward city council candidate The Linwood Ward has not had its fair share. All you have to do is drive around to see that. The fact that we still have to spend a fortune on repairing our cars due to the roads is a disgrace. The footpaths are not much better. There are still so many elderly in our ward who do not go out walking due to the footpaths. All I can promise is to fight with everything I have to get the roads and footpaths fixed and introduce process changes to get rid of as much of the red tape as possible. Jackie Simons, Linwood Ward community board candidate I don’t believe that the Linwood Ward area has ever had its fair share of facilities. Postearthquake, we certainly haven’t seen very much progress or consistency in our street repairs. I think the coming three years will see a surge in activity within the Linwood Ward, as those who are elected will need to step up and work within their designated area to ensure re-election in 2019. I would work to ensure the building of the pool in Linwood, alongside more recreational facilities for our young people and a faster pace of road and footpath repair.

Jack Singh, Linwood Ward community board candidate I don’t think they have. There are so many things that are still not cared for. Most of the things we had have not been restored, like libraries, banks, post offices. I’ll be straight-forward, it hasn’t been cared for. First of all, if I’m elected, I’d like to see the people are happy. I want them to have a good relationship with their neighbours. Then I want to see the roads fixed, and then other facilities like post offices and shopping centres, so people don’t have to go very far to use them. I also want to see road crossings for children improved.

Brenda Lowe-Johnson, Linwood Ward community board candidate The problems in Linwood could get bigger if we don’t go from the youth up. To the first question, a big no. We have tried to lobby for things over the last three years, but to say there is no money, this has frustrated us. But as a board, we need to be prudent. The good thing is we have money on target for a swimming pool ($20 million), which will keep some of the young people out of mischief. There are many young people in Linwood that are talented in music and many talented grown-ups. I would like to see a music school beside the swimming pool.

Our People Living the dream of telling stories Emily Burns, 23, of St Albans, has had a whirlwind year in musical theatre playing leading roles in Mary Poppins and the second wife of Argentine president, Eva Peron, in Showbiz Christchurch’s recent production of Evita. She spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding about those productions, her dream role, and her love for composer Andrew Lloyd Webber Tell me about what this year has been like for you? I have loved this year. It started off in the summer playing an alternative for Mary Poppins at The Court Theatre. Then I jumped straight into Mamma Mia! which was so much fun. All of these roles in shows are completely different. I am such a theatre nerd and love tackling every new role. Then I went to Invercargill and was hosted by the wonderful team down at Invercargill Musical Theatre and we put on Mary Poppins. It was magical to be able to have Mary myself . After that it was straight into Evita and now I am going to play the understudy of Elle Woods for Legally Blonde for the Court Theatre’s summer season and an ensemble role. It will be fun. chihuahuas, bull dogs and lots of pink. Do you have a favourite role

you have played this year? Eva Peron definitely. She is just something else. The journey of her young self at 15 all the way through to her premature death at 33. I find her fascinating and I love the fact she was a real woman who made such an impact on these people’s lives and on Argentine history. It is one of those roles I feel extremely lucky to play. What do you think of Eva Peron as a person and the way she was portrayed in the show? It is interesting because obviously in history and audiences there is going to be divided opinion about her. But people always say she slept her way to the top but she didn’t sleep her way to stay at the top, you know, she did a lot of good for the poor descamisadoes. She managed to build hundreds of orphanages and schools, housing for people

STAR-IN-THE-MAKING: Emily Burns has had a whirlwind year in musical theatre playing leading roles including Mary Poppins and Eva Peron in Evita.

who never had that kind of support before. She is incredibly stubborn and a determined woman that doesn’t back down. And I take it you are a huge fan of the composer of the show Andrew Lloyd Webber​? Oh, he has just got such a way with music hasn’t he. Every time I do a show of his it just surprises

me. There is so many hidden gems in the music score that are so powerful. I did Phantom of the Opera with Showbiz Christchurch last year and the first show I ever did was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Andrew Lloyd Webber shows are always a huge spectacle. You have done the big shows?

Yes, and I especially love when Showbiz Christchurch does them because they have these stunning orchestras. There is something about live music. We go downstairs to warm-up in the pit and the orchestra is just slowly coming in and getting their instruments tuned. That is one of my favourite parts of the show because I love coming down with the musicians because we kind of live in separate worlds in the show. Looking at all the reviews in Evita, all the reviewers have had positive things to say about your performance. What do you think of it all? Did you feel like there was a bit of pressure? The reviews were extremely generous and so lovely. There was a bit of pressure. As soon as the show starts you have just got to forget everything else and focus and telling the story as truthfully as you can. It is knowing and trusting the work we put in at rehearsals. Would this be the most challenging role you have played? Yes, 100 per cent. First up the music is complex. It is verging on opera on the fact there isn’t much dialogue. So everything said is sung.

through music So for that to sound natural and seem like a conversation. The composer has to do a lot of changing of the keys, time signatures and rhythms. It took me a long time to feel comfortable in that. On the technical side of things there are a lot of costume changes. There is that whole added element of am I going to make it out on stage fully clothed tonight and with the right wig on. When you first got into NASDA did you really think you would be able to make a full career out of performing? Oh, my gosh it was definitely a dream that felt very far away. It is just taking baby steps. Having the confidence in yourself and working hard. I never stop learning, I am constantly researching and practising.   Do you have a dream role you would like to play after doing big roles already? I would love to play the witch Elphaba in the musical Wicked one day. Just have all that green face painting, would love it.

What actually got you into theatre? It is funny. I love Walt Disney movies and ever since I could talk I would sit in front of the TV and say the words. I would watch TV so much I would say the words of the characters and sing all the songs. That was kind of and indicator to my parents

they should probably get me some singing lessons so it is more pleasant for them. Tell me about what you like to do outside of theatre? Things I enjoy doing is I love food and cooking. I love going down to the Christchurch Farmers Market and stocking up on lots of fresh food. I am often making curries. I also love op-shopping. In the city there are lot of great op-shops. I love TV shows as well. There is some really high quality programmes coming up with some incredible acting. I see it as research-watching actors do what they do best. Is there anything you try to advocate through the performing arts? The more people come out and enjoy it. I know it is hard in this day and age to justify sometimes a ticket to these kind of shows. With the array of entertainment we have at our hands literally. I am thankful for the amount of people who come out to the theatre and enjoy live story-telling.

Native Plant Destination An increasing demand and interest in native plants has resulted in the expansion of The Native Plant Nursery into Christchurch. Originally the Taupo Native Plant Nursery, the company has been growing steadily since 1961 when it first began supplying native plants for reserves, forests and national parks. The Marshlands area of Christchurch has long been associated with plants and market gardens, so it is the ideal venue for a niche business like the Native Plant Nursery. With large scale landscaping contracts, regeneration projects and three nurseries nationwide, expansion southwards has brought 98 years of collective native plant experience within the national team to our doorstep. Comprising a wholesale nursery complex and a 10 acre property to raise plants, the Native Plant Nursery is


basically a plant factory. As well as mainstream natives, there is ample scope to produce other plants of interest and by growing on-site, the home gardener reaps the benefit of lower prices.

While best known for eco-sourced natives, the nurseries are branching out, literally, into edible varieties, bedding plants and fruit trees. So expect to see Heuchera and camellias thriving alongside raspberry canes and coprosmas! In addition to developing a flourishing native plant outlet in Christchurch, the company’s other long term goal is to become involved in community education projects with local schools and organisations. So why not revisit the green zone of Marshlands and discover a gardening destination that’s new, natural and native! For further information visit The Native Plant Nursery at 478 Marshland Rd Christchurch or www.nativeplantnursery.nz

Southern Institute Ensuring a safe of Technology work place Monique VanRooyen is a perfect example of how the Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) assists full time workers to move forward in their career. Working in administration at SIT for nine years, Monique jumped at the opportunity to upskill in her Administration Management career with the National Certificate in Project Management (Level 4) in June 2016. The 18-week blended delivery course not only offered the content she needed to take a

step forward, but its flexible hours made both studying and working viable, she said. “The biggest benefit is being able to do the course outside of work hours and also the fact that lectures are fortnightly, which allows time to complete each assignment.” Though only half way through the Project Management certificate, she said it had already increased her confidence to talk in front of large groups and had given her a better understanding of Monique VanRooven business dealings. “I enjoy the tutor’s lecturing style, he has a lot of industry based knowledge and experience in this area which enables us to grasp the concepts [of Project Management] a lot easier.” Monique said she would “definitely” recommend the course to anyone interested in a managing environment on any level, especially those looking to excel in their existing role.

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.

The 3 Step Plan to Make Healthy Habits Stick Health and Wellness Coach Annabelle Matson gives us her 3 step plan on how to make healthy habit stick. Add, modify and delete, it’s as easy as ABC


hen it comes to eating habits and making improvements to our health in general, trying to change absolutely everything about our lifestyle overnight, very rarely works. We often think: “if I can’t eat / do things perfectly, I shouldn’t bother at all”. As a recovering perfectionist I totally get that. However this clearly doesn’t support success. It just keeps us stuck right where we are, on the dieting roller coaster, never seeing results for the long term. I always say to my clients, “overtime not overnight”. We want to do things gradually, because that’s what results in permanent change. Why weight loss and many health programs often don’t work, is because we go from eating whatever we want, to restricting everything. So instead of drastically restricting everything, use my 3 step tool – add, modify and delete. A: Pick one thing you want to add

B: Pick one thing you want to modify C: Pick one thing you want to delete For example: Add: A morning meditation to centre you for the day. Modify: Refined sugar intake. Alcohol is a huge source of sugar – so instead of drinking during the week, stick to a few just on the weekends. Delete: Eating after 8pm.

Commit to the add, modify, delete plan for 30 days. Once that all becomes a habit – start a new add, modify, delete plan. When you do steps incrementally like that, it creates new habits. You won’t feel overwhelmed and it feels really manageable. Like magic, it all starts to become a lifestyle that you LOVE and that are you motivated to sustain.

Advanced Weight Management Support + GO SLIM GARCINIA GOLD is the latest in Natural Weight Management Support to hit the market. It contains three well researched herbal extracts in optimum amounts to support weight management as well as offer surprising benefits for good health. An extract of the purple rind of Mangosteen contains an amazing group of compounds called Xanthones. Xanthones may support weight loss by helping normalising a slow metabolism (common as we age), improving digestive function and nutrient absorption, acting as a powerful appetite suppressant by promoting synthesis of glycogen in the body (With adequate levels of glycogen the brain receives a signal to suppress the appetite), increasing energy and activity levels (but non stimulating) as well as supporting fat metabolism. Xanthones also offer amazing health support in other ways. They contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals as well as some of the most powerful antioxidant nutrients found in nature that may help slow the aging process, ward off degenerative diseases and physical and mental deterioration. East Indian Globe Thistle has been shown to increase the levels of the hormone adiponectin which encourages food to be burned as energy rather than stored as fat. When East Indian Globe Thistle is combined with Xanthones weight

loss is potentiated as shown in an eight week study of 100 people on a calorie controlled diet with exercise where half the participants took the combination of the two herbs. Weight loss benefits, including a reduction in hip and waist size were significantly increased in the 50 people using the combination of East Indian Globe Thistle & Xanthones compared to those on diet and exercise alone. The third ingredient Garcinia Cambogia is a source of hydroxycitric acid or HCA. HCA can help burn fat for energy, help stop the formation of fat from excess calories in the diet, while reducing the appetite as well as food cravings. It has become one of the most popular weight loss supplements for this reason. Garcinia Cambogia also increases your serotonin levels which can improve mood and sleep. One of the big problems today is we eat much more than we need. This excess eating has been shown to lead to serious health issues as well as a shorter life span. GO SLIM GARCINIA GOLD contains three powerful natural ingredients to support a healthy weight as well as the potential to support improved body function. Further information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

Take a trip with Third Aged Tours Taking people aged over 50 on trips around New Zealand and the world for nearly 20 years has earned Third Age Tours a brag book that Director Brenda CorbyYarrall says “businesses would give their eye teeth for.’’ Taking small groups of 10 – 24 people means I can operate the tour in a relaxed, companionable manner. We have an absolute blast when we’re away. It’s all about having fun. Most of my trips are run annually because they’re so popular, but I’m always adding new destinations - like “Sicily, South Italy & Vatican” + “Cuba”, as people ask for them. Brenda checks out all accommodation before booking it, and ensures the party spends at least a few nights at each place. That way you don’t feel like you’re living out of a suitcase. Many clients now have made over 20 tours with us, one has completed a whopping 27 tours. My clients tell me they keep coming back because

Duchenne Improve Dental circulation & feel better

With 12 clinics from Kaiapoi to Invercargill, Duchenne Dental Services provides a modern, professional and welcoming service to their clients throughout Canterbury and the South Island. The team at Duchenne Dental offer first-time and replacement full and partial dentures. With the aid of digital scanning technology they also hand craft high-end aesthetic and precision fit dentures. All products are constructed with injection moulded acrylics and elastomers. This means a greater effort is placed on creating a comfortable and well aligned finished denture. This is to ensure that patients who wear dentures made by Duchenne will have confidence to eat, talk and smile naturally. Experienced technicians also work on the protection of remaining natural teeth with custom fitted mouthguards. This is a must for those in contact sports like rugby. A custom fitted mouthguard provides far more protection and better design to the stock “ boil and bite” products. Not only is it about protecting teeth or replacing missing teeth, Duchenne are about providing dental services. This allows the team to assist patients who suffer from

snoring or sleep apnoea. Snoring affects approximately 50-60% of all adults. Often snoring can affect persons in many ways, from long haul travelling to sleeping with your partner. This can be minimised and treated with snoring appliances, designed and crafted at Duchenne Dental. With the latest in technology and crafting techniques, patients can trust their smile and dental care to the Duchenne team. EAT. TALK. SMILE. Duchenne Dental Services.

Poor circulation is often caused by inactivity of the leg muscles, due to age, illness, sitting or standing long periods. The heart pumps blood to all parts of the body in order to: • supply oxygen and nutrients to every cell. • keep the body temperature stable. • remove waste from the body Good blood flow is essential to nourish cells, tissue and bone. It is critical for wellbeing and energy. When blood flow is restricted health issues occur - cold feet and hands, swollen ankles, cramps, numb feet, aching and restless legs, abrasions and ulcers do not heal Boost circulation with any type of movement, massage and stretching. If strenuous exercise is impossible, try Tai Chi or work feet and hands with an Aircycle circulation booster while you sit in
