Decision looms over Sumner skate ramp site „„ By Annabelle Dick A DECISION on whether Sumner’s skate ramp can stay where it is, is expected to be made this week. The half pipe, on the bend of Marriner St and Wakefield Ave, has been operating without a resource consent and the city council is reviewing what enforcement action to take. But Sumner business owners Chris and Roydon Gage-Smart, of Sumner Re Treat, say the

skate ramp has created serious noise issues and is also having an impact on their business. “We’ve had kids skating up until midnight and it’s driving us and our clients in our apartments crazy,” Mr Gage-Smart said. The skate ramp has been on the temporary Wakefield Ave site since last winter and is facilitated by the Sumner Residents’ Community Association. Last week, the city council

department has requested a legal review on what enforcement action to take and the compliance date for its removal is now on hold. The skate ramp originally sat on the corner of Wakefield Ave and Nayland St but the city council asked the association to move it last year so construction could begin on the Sumner Centre. “The council knew we were moving to this site and told us to move. We asked them

to find us a site and they couldn’t and told us to find some privately-owned land,” Sumner Community Residents’ Association member Kimberley Mossman said. The current site belongs to a local resident who loaned it to the association to put the ramp on for the interim.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK GREAT TO see Di France rewarded for her work at the Redcliffs Tennis Club. Sports clubs can’t survive without people like Di so it’s fantastic news that she has been recognised by Tennis NZ (see page 3). I’ve seen many good sports clubs fall by the wayside over the years; usually because the administrators aren’t solid enough; or the clubs simply can’t get people to do the large amounts of volunteer work needed. Di has been tied up with the club for many years and says she is humbled by with the Volunteer of the Year award she received at a ceremony in Auckland. And well done to the people or person who nominated Di for the award. Also today, we reveal the issues surrounding the skate ramp in central Sumner. See page 1. – Barry Clarke

News Di takes big tennis award „„ By Gordon Find later DI FRANCE has been acknowledged by Tennis NZ for her work rebuilding one of the city’s oldest clubs. The Redcliffs Tennis Club president was awarded the Volunteer of the Year award at Tennis NZ’s annual awards night this month. Mrs France travelled to Auckland to attend the awards and got the chance to meet the country’s best players and see some top international action on court at the ASB Classic, which was being played at the same time. “It was an honour to be included in the function, it was great. I felt terribly humbled by it,” she said. The award came in recognition of her role in reopening the Redcliffs club after it was devastated by the February 2011 earthquake. “The courts were completely demolished; they had to be fully reinstated,” said Mrs France. The club was in recess for two years while it raised the $200,000 needed to rebuild the courts. Mrs France was instrumental in the club surviving extinc-

tion. She stepped in as project manager, applying for community grants and overseeing the reinstatement of the damaged courts. When the club reopened in May 2013, she was elected as president. Under her leadership, membership has grown from 40 juniors and 22 seniors to 132

juniors and 35 affiliated senior members. This hasn’t been her first stint in the role. Mrs France served as the club’s president during the early 1980s before becoming inactive in the sport for over 20 years. When rumours of the club’s potential closure came to

light following the earthquake, she was prompted into action. France continues to be the driving force behind the tennis club. She has established junior tennis coaching, first by engaging Stu Chalmers as junior coach in 2013, then by organising Evie Ruegg to take on the head coach role. She also established social senior club tennis on Tuesday and Friday mornings, which she herself attends. Along with her husband, Roger, Mrs France undertakes regular maintenance of the courts, club house and hall. The club leased its hall to the displaced Redcliffs Public Library until December last year. Mrs France said the next challenge was to develop the club to utilise the hall space now available. Using networks she has built throughout Redcliffs, Mrs France encourages strong community and family participation in club events. She regularly offers her own services to club activities, which may include cooking sausages or preparing afternoon tea for prize-givings and end of season parties.

In Brief BABY IN LOCKED CAR Firefighters were called to help get a baby out of a locked car parked on Sumner’s Esplanade on Monday. Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade received the call at about 11.10am. However, when firefighters arrived, the car had been unlocked. A Fire Service spokesman said it was an accident and the baby’s father had arrived with the spare key for the vehicle before firefighters arrived. Meanwhile, a woman was seriously injured when her vehicle crashed into a retaining wall near Governors Bay at about 10.50am on Monday. Firefighters waited for the ambulance to arrive before getting the woman out of the vehicle. STRANGE BLACK CLOUD A mysterious black plume that invaded Lyttelton Harbour last week was likely soot from a departing vessel. Environment Canterbury initially said it was coal dust from the port. But ECan regional leader investigations and incident response Valyn Barrett said further investigation showed the substance was likely to be soot from the stack of a departing vessel and not coal dust as first thought. Ms Barrett said it was non-toxic to marine life and it could not be cleaned up with a boom.

Mary Kamo

Prison chaplain role rewarded Mary Kamo spent 33 years working with prisoners to turn their lives around. Bridget Rutherford spoke to her about helping inmates, living at Birdlings Flat, and being proud of her kids

DEDICATED: Mary Kamo received a New Year Honour for services to the welfare of prisoners after being a prison chaplain for 33 years.

You were made a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the New Year Honours. How did you feel when you found out? I was astonished; I thought they must have had the wrong person. But when I realised I felt very, very privileged. I found out about two months before the announcement. When you’re told, you have to keep it confidential and that was the hardest part, I couldn’t tell anybody! You received the honour for your work with the inmates at Christchurch Women’s, Paparua Men’s and Rolleston prisons as chaplain. Can you tell me what your work involved? It involved visiting the prison, meeting with inmates, doing sacraments, and Sunday services. Just really trying to assist inmates in getting some sense of their own

spirituality. A lot of people would say they believed in some sort of faith, but a lot don’t know how to bring it into daily living. More than 50 per cent of women in prison are Maori, and because of my involvement I was able to meet them at that level and also bring in people from their own iwi or kaumatua to come in a meet with them and do their whakapapa with them. I worked in Paparua and Rolleston prisons as well, but my heart was in the women’s prison be-

cause what we need to do, I believe, is find alternatives to imprisonment. Now I’m not talking about them not taking responsibility for criminal activity, but I do think there are probably better ways of handling it than breaking up families, children going into care, and then that whole damage being very difficult to repair when the mothers come out of prison. Pillars say that the families do the sentence, and that’s absolutely true.

with New Year’s honour How did you come into the role? I had been very involved in the community in the Christian family movement. Then I moved onto working as a volunteer for Whakatata House, I was volunteering there for some years. Then I got involved in starting up the restorative justice outreach in Christchurch. I was asked if I would take on the role as prison chaplain and with a little bit of trepidation agreed to do that and it went from there. It was while I was a prison chaplain that I got involved with Pillars, a charity for children of prisoners, because my husband, Ray, and I were nominated to be the kaumatua for Pillars. Did you ever expect to be doing it for 33 years? No, I didn’t. I had a few times thought I would retire but I had a project I really wanted to get established and that was for Tukutuku panels to be put up in the prison chapel, specifically the ones that are called the stairway to heaven. It seemed to me the chapel was very mono-cultural and I thought it should reflect something of the lives of the women who worshipped in there as well. I used to say to the prison – because there was often dif-

ficulty with finance – if you want to get rid of me, get the panels done, I’ll leave then (laughs). The day the panels went up, that’s the day I retired. I have to give credit to Father Jim Consedine. He invited me to consider chaplaincy, he is the one who supported prison chaplaincy in Christchurch, and he was prison chaplain himself for many years. Do you miss it? I do miss it, I miss the women. I am a kaiwhakamana, who are mainly Maori elders, and the Government set up a scheme for elders to be able to visit any prison in the country and support their people. That system means these elders are available on request or available to visit the prison, and meet with people, so I will go back as kaiwhakamana.

Is there anything that has really stuck with you during your work? The care that was extended to me. That’s what I found in the prison, the majority of the women would care for each other, then staff do the same. There were times where I asked myself who was ministering who. It matured me, expanded my thinking and expanded my heart. And you live near Little River don’t you? I live in Birdlings Flat, we recycled a house off the red zone from Burwood and set it up on a property my husband had inherited. We lived at Birdlings Flat before our first child was born, and when we realised schools and doctors weren’t that close, we bought in Brighton. We lived there right up until the earth-

quake meant we had to move back to Birdlings. I love it here. And one of your daughters, Miriama Kamo, is quite a familiar face for many Kiwis. She is, we’ve got used to it. She is very good at what she does, what you see on screen is Miriama as she is. That is the person that she is and that’s what we’re proud of. Did you ever think when she was young that she would be fronting shows such as Sunday and Kiwi Living? No (laughs). Miriama’s shy. Most people won’t believe that. She was so shy that she wouldn’t talk and she would hide behind my skirt if anyone said hello to her. What do your other children do? We’ve got five – the oldest, our

son Ward, is on Native Affairs. Our eldest daughter Michaela works in Tauranga for the Bay of Plenty Health Board, then Amos, works for the New Zealand Transport Agency. Then our youngest, Sian, works for an insurance company in Auckland. We have lots of grandchildren – 13. Where did you grow up? I was born in Dunedin of which I’m very proud. If my husband is watching Canterbury play Otago he has to watch it with my blue and gold scarf hanging across the television. So what brought you up to Christchurch? That was my big OE! A girlfriend and I were going to go overseas, but we hadn’t seen much of New Zealand so we started off in Queenstown. Then my mother said we want you in Christchurch (because they had moved there) for your 21st. So the very next day after my 21st we went to a nightclub/coffee bar. And here was this musician who owned it and that was the end of it. A friend invited us to meet him there on a Friday night, so that’s when I really met Ray. I’m still threatening to go overseas!

News Sailing around Croatia for hope „„ By Annabelle Dick LYTTELTON resident Ingrid Robertson may have a debilitating condition but it’s not stopping her from sailing Croatia’s coastline. Ms Robertson, 50, has been selected to take part in Sailing Sclerosis’ Oceans of Hope – an international sailing expedition for people with multiple sclerosis. It will see her travel to Croatia where she will sail a yacht around the Dalmatian coast with other people affected by MS from around the world. “I like proving a point to myself that I can still do things and not be disabled by my MS. It’s a little bit outside of my comfort zone because I’m going to the other side of the world on my own and doing something I haven’t done in a while,” she said. Ms Robertson first encountered Oceans of Hope when a yacht came to Auckland in 2014 and she sailed around the harbour on it for several hours. Ever since then, she’s been hooked and wanted to take part. Ms Robertson was invited to an expedition in Croatia in May where she will be the only New Zealander on board one of the

•From page 1 Nearby residents say they’ve witnessed drinking, littering and users purposely banging their boards against the ramp to keep neighbours awake. “It’s wooden and it creates a lot of noise. If there’s half a dozen kids there in the evening, it’s very loud. The local nearby residents, we’ve got together and we’re against it. We just want it out of here,” Mr Gage-Smart said. Mrs Mossman said the problems were related to older teenagers coming into Sumner in the evening when the ramp was unlocked. The residents’ association agreed to unlock and lock the ramp at 8am and 9.30pm each day to mitigate issues. “I get it doesn’t suit everyone but what are kids going to be doing if there’s no skate ramp? These kids are really engaged and skating is a really tough activity. They’re a great bunch of kids,” she said. Young local skaters who frequently use it wanted to see it stay as well.

progressively affected her physically, she still works full-time, is on the board of directors for the Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Society of Canterbury and its research committee. She’s also more adventurous than most having done all sort of daredevil-type activities. “I’ve always been active. I’ve done the bungy jump, I’ve done the sky dive, I’ve been in cars in race tracks going up to 200 km/h. I love the rush and adrenaline,” she said.

HOLIDAY

FUN

THE BUSY Bumbles programme has been busy keeping Sumner children entertained over the holiday period. As part of the programme, children had an “Ahoy There” day where they played games and did activities related to theme of pirates and mermaids. “Let’s go ape!” was another theme-based day where there was lots of monkeying around with more activities, crafts and games. On Superhero Day, children made their own capes and masks from the Make Craft Company. They used their X-ray super power to work out the mystery objects and helped fight evil. The Sumner Busy Bumbles holiday programme will run through to January 31.

SEA CREATURES: Isabelle and Mitchell wear mermaid tales on “Ahoy There” day.

Motorists may experience delays of up to 20 minutes. People travelling to Christchurch International Airport should plan ahead and allow plenty of extra travel time. The work to reconstruct the road through the intersection is part of the State Highway 1 Russley Road Upgrade. The project is progressing well and is expected to be finished in 2018.

Accolade for restaurant

LYTTELTON restaurant Roots has been named in a prestigious list of the world’s 1000 best eateries. La Liste is a restaurant guide compiled from hundreds of guidebooks and online review sites to list the world’s 1000 top restaurants. Eight New Zealand restaurants made the list and Roots was the only restaurant outside of Auckland to make the cut. It’s owned by Christy Martin and Giulio Sturla who opened the restaurant in 2012. Roots also won Cuisine Magazine’s Restaurant of the Year award in 2015. It was also named runner-up best new restaurant in the Good Food Awards in 2014. Auckland-based restaurants The French Cafe, The Grove, Sidart, Kazuya, Cocoro, Merediths and Baduzzi also feature on the list. Last year there were four Kiwi restaurants on the list, compared to this year’s eight. My Kitchen Rules NZ judge Ben Bayly is executive chef of two restaurants on the list, The Grove and Baduzzi. He told the Weekend Herald he was “so proud” to be associated with two establishments which were included.

Normally the busiest part of a beach lifeguard’s season is over Christmas and New Year – but not this year due to cooler temperatures over the festive period. Sumner Surf Lifesaving Club lifeguard captain Henry Lawson said the traditional busy period on the beaches has passed, but it was quieter than normal due to the weather and surf conditions. “The weather hasn’t been great and the surf hasn’t been very good. There hasn’t been much of a wave – a couple of days have been all right but it’s pretty small,” he said. But Mr Lawson expects it to get busier as a large number of people are returning from holidays away. “There’s a drop off when people head out of town but when it’s the end of the holidays and families have been to the park, museum and done everything they can then the beach is always there,” he said.

PHOTOS: ANNABELLE DICK ​ “ We expect a kick up from here.” Incidents at Sumner have also been low, Mr Lawson said the biggest injury so far was a finger that wouldn’t stop bleeding. “It’s been pretty relaxed with incidents due to the weather.

Rips and currents aren’t very powerful so people have been able to manage it,” he said. Meanwhile, further north, New Brighton Surf Lifesaving Club lifeguard manager Scotty Roberts said the traditional busy period on the beaches has

passed, but it was quieter than normal because the weather “hasn’t been that fantastic” so far. “I’m hoping that kind of weather is still to come, I really want to see more sun come through and with that then comes the increase in numbers on the beach,” he said. Waimairi president Mike Litten said the club has seen “slightly” fewer people on the beach compared to the last couple of years. “On our beach it’s very familyoriented, further down in [New] Brighton it’s more adults, but on ours we tend to see families and young people. Due to that there’s probably been fewer saves than at this time last year I think,” he said.

Harwood in tune with health for Debbie Harwood will perform with fellow When The Cat’s Away singers Annie Crummer and Margaret Urlich, as well as Sharon O’Neill at the Selwyn Sounds concert in March. She spoke to Tom Doudney about her latest endeavours DEBBIE HARWOOD has always been interested in helping people heal but soon she will be expressing that desire through a form other than music. The former When The Cats Away singer recently qualified as a hypnotherapist after completing a two-month course in San Francisco and is working on setting up her own practice this year. Come March 4 though, her focus will be on using her vocal talents to woo the crowd at Selwyn Sounds when she performs on a bill stacked with Kiwi rock royalty. Also playing will be Dragon, Mi-Sex, the Jordan Luck Band and Jason Kerrison, among others. Harwood said herself, Crummer, Urlich and O’Neill had strong chemistry which had been key to their success. “Seeing as we have been making music since the early 80s, and the 70s in Sharon’s situation, we have been right through

people’s lives with them as well,” she said. “I never ever, ever take that for granted, I will always get on stage with enormous respect for that, that those people have been through lots of different things, great things and sad things, with our music as a soundtrack to those things.” Harwood had been interested in hypnotherapy since undergoing it herself in her early 20s, when it helped her overcome asthma and other health problems which were affecting her singing. However, she only made the decision to train as a hypnotherapist early last year. “I love being able to help people make changes to core beliefs so I literally woke up at 8am in the morning with this feeling, by 10am that morning I had booked my flights and registered with the school in San Francisco and off I went,” she said. “I am quite impulsive and

ENERGY: Debbie Harwood is starting a new hypnotherapy practice but will be fully focused on music when she plays Lincoln’s Selwyn Sounds concert in March. ​ when I get a strong feeling about something I will act on it.” Harwood has been plagued by health problems throughout her career and in 2009 had to seek more conventional medical help.

Seriously ill at the age of 49, she underwent open heart surgery at St George’s Hospital to fix a failed mitral valve and hole in her heart. “One of the funniest things

that has ever happened to me was when I woke up from the operation in ICU. I was very, very ill, and I looked at the bottom of my bed and my surgeon and ward doctor were there,” she said.

“I was looking at the ward doctor and he had long hair and blue scrubs and his name tag said David Bowie – that was his actual name. I am pretty sure I said to him at some point: ‘I think your best work was Life on Mars, David’. He was a musician too.” Her health was now better than it had been for more than 20 years and felt she had received “a second go at life.” Harwood has just recorded a new song called Isolated which she hopes to release in the next two months. She plans on recording four more songs but is not expecting to put out a full album. She was looking forward to playing on the same bill with the other Selwyn Sounds artists, such as Dragon which she had a long association with. Former Dragon keyboardist Alan Mansfield now plays with Harwood, O’Neill, Crummer and Urlich, and Harwood had been good friends with another former Dragon keyboardist Paul Hewson. In fact Hewson’s death from a drug overdose in 1984, when he was 33, had a profound effect on her career. Having just left Dragon, Hewson was staying with Harwood and her flatmate in Auckland at the time.

BEST OF FRIENDS: From left, Margaret Urlich, Harwood and Annie Crummer will perform together at Selwyn Sounds, along with Sharon O’Neill (not pictured).

“I cooked him his last dinner, fillet steak actually, and then he went out and the next thing

I knew I had the police on my doorstep in the morning, it was very devastating,” Harwood said. “I was 24 and my career had only just started, and so my very first single that I released in 1984 I dedicated to him. It was called If That Will Make you Happy and I won a music award the following year for that which was where the seed of When The Cat’s Away started because Margaret Urlich, Annie Crummer and I were at the music awards in 85.”

CONTRACTORS need help tracking down red rock in Lyttelton to reface a retaining wall. Dubbed ‘The Great Lyttelton Red Rock Hunt,’ contractors have put out a call to residents to look through their properties for pieces of rock so the wall on the cnr of Coleridge Tce and Dublin St can be finished. City council project manager Richard Humm said contractors were running short of the volcanic rock needed for the external finish. “The cost of restoring every red rock wall is prohibitively high, but key walls around the town are being refaced using salvaged rocks. Unfortunately, we have run very short and urgently need Lyttelton residents to help us out by rummaging through their gardens, backyards or old demolished buildings to find pieces of rock that we can use to finish some of our key walls,” Mr Humm said. The team need 389 sq m of red rock to restore the wall. They’re after pieces that are about the size of a loaf of bread or11:51:35 bigger. a.m. Red rock walls have heritage

Levy on tourists is overdue

Green MP Eugenie Sage talks about bringing the cruise ships back to Lyttelton and generating money to put towards conservation efforts. It was good to see the cruise ship Europa 2 berthed in Lyttelton last week and the extra business its passengers would have generated for Lyttelton and city retail and food businesses and Canterbury tourism operators. The Lyttelton Port of Christchurch is focused on expanding its container and cargo operations, saying this is more profitable than the berthage fees it gets from cruise ships. Yet as a city council-owned company, LPC also has a wider responsibility to the city and regional economy. Discussions continue between LPC and the council about a dedicated cruise ship berth and how this is to be funded. Some 3.3 million people visited New Zealand in the year to March 2016. By 2022,

FUNDING: Cruise ships in Lyttelton generate retail and food business.

this number is expected to reach 4.5 million. Tourism has overtaken dairying as New Zealand’s biggest earner. Many tourists are attracted by New Zealand’s spectacular landscapes and natural areas. Yet they contribute little to their protection and are creating significant people pressure in some areas. Akaroa is swamped by visitors when cruise ships visit and we had the first recorded outbreak of noro-virus in tramping huts in Nelson Lakes National Park this summer. I believe many tourists would be happy to help protect the special places they come to enjoy. The Green Party’s Taonga Levy would

see international visitors pay an extra $18 on top of existing biosecurity charges when they arrive in New Zealand. This would generate $46 million annually on average, and $1.5 billion by 2050 to help the under-funded Department of Conservation control stoats, possums, rats and other predators so our endangered plants and wildlife can thrive. The Taonga Levy would help make Predator Free New Zealand a reality. The Taonga Levy would also generate about $80 million over four years ($20 million per annum) to help councils in tourist hot spots provide basic tourism infrastructure. Some communities with

a small rating base, such as in the Mackenzie Basin, are struggling to keep up with the cost of providing and maintaining tourist facilities such as toilets, camper-van dump stations and upgraded wastewater schemes. The Taonga Levy would help them do this. If New Zealand is to remain an attractive tourist destination, we need to do much more to make our “clean green” image real. Having international tourists help fund this is overdue. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Should tourists pay a levy to help keep New Zealand clean and green? Email annabelle.dick@starmedia.kiwi

Bid to keep pumping untreated wastewater into harbours „„ By Bridget Rutherford UNTREATED wastewater will continue to be poured into the city’s waterways during storms and high rainfall. THe city council is applying to Environment Canterbury for a new resource consent to continue discharging untreated wastewater into the waterways and harbours in emergencies. More than 700,000 cu m of wastewater, including sewage, had been discharged into the waterways since 2012. Following the September 2010 earthquake, ECan granted the city council consent for occasional overflows into waterways so it did not flood onto properties. However, because of earthquake damage, a nonenforcement agreement was put in place. But that ceases in March, so the city council either needed to comply with its original consent, or apply for a new one. City council three waters and waste acting head John Moore said it was unlikely to be able to meet its consent

EMERGENCIES: The city council will apply for a new resource consent to discharge untreated wastewater into waterways during high rainfall.

conditions, as it appeared the frequency of overflows may exceed what was allowed. He said it would be possible to stop wastewater overflows with a new pressure sewer network, however, that would cost $3 billion. Wastewater includes sewage and shower, washing machine and sink water. The

wastewater system had built in overflow points, which allowed wastewater to be released during storms. It overflows into the Avon and Heathcote rivers, the estuary, Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour, Governors Bay and Akaroa. Canterbury University’s waterways centre for freshwater management Professor Bryan

Jenkins (left) said the national standard for wastewater discharges was once every two years. However, in Christchurch it was happening once every six months, he said. For the city’s rivers to be used safely for recreation, there could not be any sewage flowing into them, he said. “Until that’s dealt with, we can’t have swimmable Avon and Heathcote rivers.”

Some Port Hills tracks closed due to danger from rockfall PEOPLE USING mountain bike and walking tracks in the Port Hills are being warned to keep away from sign-posted areas due to dangerous rock scaling and blasting work. The blasting and scaling work is part of a multi-million dollar project to get the Sumner to Lyttelton corridor re-opened. A large area above and below Sumner Rd on the Lyttelton side of the Port Hills is currently extremely dangerous and off-limits to the public. Residents are being advised to stay off the walking and cycle tracks in the area shown in the map at all times, including weekends. Signage and fencing has been increased to make it clear where the hazardous areas are and that people should not enter. The blasting and scaling work is being carried out by McConnell Dowell, in partnership with Beca, Doug Hood Mining and Geovert, and is being jointly funded by the city council and the New Zealand Transport Agency. The aim is to remove any loose rock that could fall onto Sumner Rd ahead of repair work on the road starting.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Make wise choices for holiday fun Don’t spend your holiday recuperating from a preventable accident. The double whammy of the holiday and summer seasons are in full swing. Accidents lead the way for ambulance rides and healing time. An accident is just that. An event that happens from a series of events, causing bodily harm. In most cases those events could have been prevented with a little more thought behind the decision. At Physiotherapy Associates, located at 86 Wainoni Rd, Wainoni, they pride themselves in assisting the healing process and they are strong advocates in that awareness and assessment are the key to prevention. “We stress to our clients, the following; always have a first aid kit in the car, on the boat, or at your location and do a first aid course. Muscle and ligament strains and sprains are some of the most common accident results.” Says head physiotherapist Richard.

Alcohol consumption is one of the biggest contributors to any accident. As people mature in many cases they acquire that, “invisible, superhero syndrome” where they feel they can do actions with the same buoyancy as when they were younger. In many instances this leads to the result of a fall, tweak or miscalculate in the action and an injury incurs.” Richard advises, “If there is severe pain, deformity or inability to bear weight seek medical help or call 111 immediately. If soft tissue pain does not improve by the order of about 50% within 48 hours, visit your GP, afterhours or your local physiotherapist.” Fun is what life is all about. Creating memories and enjoying yourself. Just remember when water-skiing, swimming, playing cricket, touch, tramping, skateboarding, running, biking, walking, or any physical activity to assess the situation, look at the potential outcome and make that choice to protect yourself and

those you love. If an accident happens take the following support steps and Think RICE and HARM. R est; the injured part. I ce; apply a cold pack for 20 mins C ompression; bandage to apply compression to the injured part to prevent swelling and bleeding. E levation; the part to help reduce swelling. Avoid H.A.R.M. H eat; don’t use hot packs on a fresh injury. A lcohol; avoid drinking it increases swelling and bleeding R unning; or exercise involving the injured part M assage; or rubbing can make swelling and bleeding worse. Today people look to Dr Google for answers. Remember news is sensationalized and more than 50% of what’s online is incorrect.

Check with your healthcare professional before diagnosing yourself. New Zealand’s approved health advice site is www.healthinfo.org. nz. Bottom line: Be careful, have fun, make conscious choices and lasting memories. If you do have an accident or need physio attention, Call Richard or Wendy at Physiotherapy Associates, 03 389 7196. Let the experts help you heal.

Grout & Tile Specialists Summer is a great time to attend to maintenance on outdoor areas while the weather is easier to work with. This can be replacing cracked grout/mortar/tiles/pavers or completing an overdue clean of decks and patios. Jaded and worn tiled surfaces can be given a professional ‘uplift’ by Groutpro. A free assessment and quote is the first step. An upgrade of kitchens and bathrooms prior to sale gives a considerable lift in appearance, helping achieve the homes true value. Also, showers are often overlooked in the busyness of life, leaving some work to do before putting the home on the market.

As a general rule, shower silicon needs replaced every 3-5years and grout needs maintenance between 8-10 years. Contact Brett to discuss cleaning and tile restoration options. Ph 027 746 7632.

Notice is hereby given that the prohibition on fires in the open air over those parts of the district which are fire district declared or constituted under Section 26 of the Fire Service Act 1975 is imposed by Clause 13 of the Christchurch Urban Fire Safety Bylaw 2014 for the period from midnight Saturday 14 January 2017 until further notice. The prohibition applies to those parts of the district which are a Fire District declared as constituted under Section 26 of the Fire Service Act 1975 and these are Brooklands, New Brighton, Sumner, Lyttelton, Governors Bay, Diamond Harbour, Little River and Akaroa and Christchurch Urban Fire Districts (where District is defined as meaning “for which the Council is the territorial authority”). The Council may extend the prohibition. During any such prohibition no person shall light any fire in the open air and no person being the occupier of any premises shall cause, permit, or suffer any such fire to be lit there or to continue to burn there. The penalty for such an offence is a fine of up to $20,000. The purpose of the prohibition is to conserve public safety by preventing danger from fire. Note: The Council may at any time, where in its opinion special reason exists or may exist to prevent the outbreak or spread of fire, prohibit the lighting of fires in the open air for any specified additional period of time within all or any districts of the city as listed above. This prohibition does not apply to: 1. Any barbeque, pizza oven or hangi provided: (a) it is not likely to constitute a danger to any person or property by reason of its location, risk of spread, inadequate containment, prevailing wind or otherwise; and (b) there is immediately available a pressurised water supply connected to a hose; and (c) it is adequately supervised. 2. Any fire in the open air in respect of which the occupier of the land upon which the fire is situated has obtained from the Council an exemption from the prohibition. Exemptions may, under Section 15 of the Bylaw, be granted in exceptional circumstances in that: (a) the fire is urgently required to prevent, reduce or overcome any hazard to life, health, property or the environment; and (b) the use of fire is the most efficient and effective means to reduce any risk of hazard to life, health, property or the environment. Applications for exceptions may be made in writing to the Regulatory Compliance Unit, Civic Offices, PO Box 73049 Christchurch 8154 or at any Council Service Centre. The issue of an exemption is not a legal defence against claims for damage arising by reason of the fire. The responsibility for its control and liability for any damage which may arise lies with the person lighting the fire. Tracey Weston HEAD OF REGULATORY COMPLIANCE www.ccc.govt.nz
