Loitering bylaw plan for Riccarton ICE CREAM: Kees and Imri Dinnissen enjoyed the egg-hunt, face-painting,

bouncy castle and barbecue, which all made for an exciting community day at a new subdivision in Halswell on Saturday. The day was organised by property management company, Fletcher Living, to give residents in the new Awatea development an opportunity to get to know their neighbours. Fletcher Living community and stakeholder manager Mark Doyle said a highlight for the children was a Fletcher Living gift of an Awatea Activity Box full of toys. The final stages of the subdivision, which will have 238 homes and two new playgrounds, is expected to be completed by June next year.

By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A NEW bylaw targeting loitering could be brought into central Riccarton to address youth crime. The police are considering making a submission to the city council asking for a new bylaw to stop loitering around the Riccarton bus lounge. The idea was suggested by Constable Aaron Thorn at the HalswellHornby-Riccarton Community Board meeting last Tuesday and is supported by Senior Constable Ken Carter. It comes after youth gathering in the Riccarton bus lounge on the corner of Riccarton Rd and Division St have been causing problems. “It is something I would like to see go through because then it gives us powers to move them on,” Constable Thorn said.

Since opening in 2015, the Riccarton bus lounge has been a hot-spot for trouble-causing youth, which is affecting surrounding businesses. During the P M Liquors Ltd hearing to open an off-licence bottle store on Riccarton Rd, Senior Constable Carter gave evidence minor crime in Riccarton was on the rise. Harcourts Riccarton business manager Chantall Sumner told Western News while the youth issues had improved from last year, the business still has to deal with “anti-social aggressive behaviour” every so often. “It is not good for us as a business. . . it is embarrassing, especially if we are sitting here with a client and they are loitering around there using bad language,” she said. She was supportive of the loitering bylaw. •Turn to page 7

Latest Christchurch news at www.


FROM THE Latest Christchurch news at www. EDITOR’S DESK POLICE HAVE come up with a good idea to try and curb youth problems in central Riccarton – a loitering bylaw. But as our article on page 1 reveals the city council, which implements the bylaw, appears to be lukewarm on it. And that’s a worry. Youths congregating in Division St are an issue. But unless they are caught in the act tagging, or threatening people, there’s little police can do about it. The city council needs to step up and get with the programme and get the ball rolling on a bylaw. You won’t get any complaints from businesses or shoppers I’ll bet. If this was Australia the police would sort the problem super quick, bylaw or no bylaw . . . if you get my drift. We’re all a bit too PC here. – Barry Clarke

News Hornby centre – mega or not? By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE PUBLIC will get to know the financial consequences of their decision if they choose to make the new Hornby library, service centre and south-west pool a separate facility. It is estimated $2.5 million of capital expenditure plus $150,000 for operational expenditure, is expected to be saved each year if the facilities are co-located into a Hornby mega-facility. The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board held a submissions meeting on Friday to make final changes before the public consultation document is released to the public. Public consultation is set to get under way later this month on the controversial facilities. The draft consultation document said because separate facilities would cost more to build and run, the city council may not be able to provide as many services to the community. A debate over whether the information may point the community towards choosing a co-located facility was ignited at the meeting. Community board chairman

Mike Mora

Vicki Buck

CONSULTATION: The city council will begin seeking feedback on the location of the controversial new Hornby library, service centre and south-west pool.

Mike Mora said he did not think the cost savings should be in the document. “I don’t think that information should be in there to sway people and their preferences at this point of time. What they need to know is there is money in the budget,” he said. His suggestion to have the information removed was supported by community board member and submissions’ committee chairwoman Debbie Mora. But city councillor Vicki Buck argued people want to

know the financial implications of their choice. “I want them to give as much information as we can possibly give them in terms of the choice they want to make,” she said. Ms Mora said Ms Buck was trying to make the document point strongly towards a shared facility. Ms Buck responded: “No, you are trying to hide the financial implications of a choice.” It was decided the information would remain in the document. The three options for the $34

million facility are Denton, Warren and Kyle parks. Concerns have also been raised over the public receiving full information on the effects the facility would have if it was placed in Denton Park. The document said under the Denton Park site challenges, one rugby field would be lost and the cricket boundaries would be reduced. Hornby Cricket Club president Kevin Hornbrook said this was incorrect as the club would lose both of its cricket fields. “We would lose all of our park . . . none of that is in here and that is what upsets me,” he said. Hornby Rugby Football Club president John Catchpole said there is not much the club can do until the results of the public consultation come back. The consultation document is to be forwarded onto city council for final approval at its meeting on April 13. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the Hornby library, service centre and south-west pool should be separate facilities or a co-located mega-facility?

Addressing cultural issues City councillor Jimmy Chen writes about the new Christchurch Multicultural Strategy

We said: Minor crime, such as trespass, tagging, shoplifting and the theft of bikes, is on the rise and young are to blame, according to police You said:

Since the earthquakes, the city has become a “city of opportunity.” We are open to new ideas, new people, and new ways of doing things – a city where anything is possible. Christchurch is also multiethnic and multicultural with people from 170 ethnic groups now living here. New subdivisions, developed in the southwest area in recent years, have attracted many migrants and international workers. This has caused a significant change to the demographics of residents living in the south-west. The diversity of culture is good news for the area. The city council adopted the final version of the Christchurch Multicultural Strategy last month and this document will be launched on May 13. The strategy is a commitment by the city council to provide a framework and a set of goals and actions to ensure every single

Hugh Jonathan McGuire – Christchurch is not the only one, my bike was stolen in Wellington last year, and the police kiosk in Newtown has been closed for sometime. Now that the Government will add 1000 more cops, this should make a difference to address minor crimes.

person feels a sense of belonging. It will also give everyone an equal opportunity to access the city council’s services, information, as well as participate in the decision-making process. As chair of city council’s multicultural working party, it’s been a privilege to lead the development of the multicultural strategy for the past year. This strategy is also a commitment by the city council to support and embrace the diversity of the people in the city. But in order to ensure the strategy delivers, we need to develop an action

plan. We also need to monitor progress on this plan to ensure its success. In considering this situation, a multicultural subcommittee has been established for overseeing the implementation of the strategy and issues relating to diverse communities. It will also consider matters related to multicultural communities. If the community or individuals have any issues related to the cultural diversity or to the implementation of the multicultural strategy, make a deputation to the sub-committee.

Lisa Marie Clark – Seriously need a law change; it’s getting out of hand. Harry Hansen – As long as they are treated with kid gloves and not truly punished for their action, this will only increase. Liz Moore – In some cases they are. But I have to wonder if they are being groomed by older persons to do more serious crime. I would like to see boot camps brought it. They know we can’t touch them so they laugh in your face. Wayne Nicholson – Too bloody soft with the

young criminals (yes, they are criminals). Time for a punishment to suit the crime, parents as well. Aaron Smith – Man, we have become namby-pamby with the youth. No hard consequences. Mike Allfrey – A lack of boundaries, consequences and respect is to blame. Corey Humm – Kids commit petty crime, meanwhile the oldies are robbing the country blind. Graeme Palmer – Round them all up and send them to the army for three months of boot camp. Miguel Lopez – Because the law is slack. Whatever we have in place now is not working.

Bottle shop licence declined

By Georgia O’Connor-Harding RESIDENTS AND businesses have won the battle to stop the opening of a controversial bottle shop next to a Work and Income building. A decision was made by the Christchurch District Licensing committee last week to decline the offTony Simons licence bottle shop application by P M Liquors Ltd for 76 Riccarton Rd. There were 11 objections and 15 signatories against the application. P M Liquors Ltd owner Lovepreet Minhas told Western News he was disappointed by the outcome. He did not want to make further comment on whether he would appeal the decision until he had spoken with his lawyer. The application was declined after the committee found Mr Minhas was “not suitable” for holding an off-licence. The licensing committee heard Mr Minhas could be at risk of losing his manager’s certificate. The decision highlighted the

company had served a minor in February 2015. P M Liquor Ltd also appeared before the Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority recently for suspension or cancellation of its off-licence store the Bottle-O in Dunedin.

This was for allegedly serving to a minor in July 2015 and the sale of alcohol to an intoxicated person in October 2015. Other concerns raised by the committee was the location – evidence was given by the police at the hearing that areas behind

some shops in Riccarton had become a place for young people to congregate. The proposed store was to be set well back from the street and hidden from public view. The committee was also concerned Mr Minhas had failed to file a tax return. In a brief of evidence to the hearing panel, Mr Minhas said this was due to being out of the country, his accountant being delayed and having the wrong address for the service of papers and these matters have since been resolved. But Christchurch District Licensing committee chairman Grant Buchanan said it is a legal requirement and if he cannot be relied upon to ensure that this is completed, it gave the committee some concern. The committee concluded the applicant was not suitable to hold an off-licence. Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board deputy chairwoman Helen Broughton said she was delighted with the outcome and felt the police did an excellent job on their presentation. Riccarton Bush-Kilmarnock Residents Association chairman Tony Simons said the outcome was great news.

In Brief NEW SPEED LIMITS A set of lowered speed limits around Halswell came into effect on Saturday. The speed limits affect Halswell Junction Rd, Quaifes Rd, Marshs Rd, Murphys Rd and Sparks Rd. These changes were the outcome of several years of lobbying by the Halswell Residents’ Association and others in the community. It comes after the city council approved a number of speed limit changes in the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton area in September. COMMUNITY AWARDS Time is running out to nominate community members in your area who deserve recognition. The Community Services Awards close this month. Those who you think have made their community a better place need to be nominated by 5pm, April 13, online or at the city council website. FIRE FUNDRAISER A celebration was organised recently at the Halswell Community Market to honour the emergency services which fought against the Port Hills fire. Five-hundred dollars was raised. All proceeds from the day went to the Port Hills Fire Restoration Fund.

TROUBLE HOTSPOT: A loitering bylaw could be brought in to address youth crime issues near Division St. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Police call for loitering bylaw in Riccarton

•From page 1 But city council’s head of community support, governance and partnerships, Lester Wolfreys, said the bylaw is a reactive rather than a preventative response. “It may reduce the problem activity around the bus lounge. However, it may also displace the activity to other locations,” he said. Constable Thorn said the idea would first need to be discussed with the Canterbury police chiefs before it would make a submission.

The city council’s head of strategic policy Helen Beaumont said the process of getting the bylaw in place would require an amendment of the Public Places Bylaw 2008, taking months to complete. The issue would first need to be identified before options and a draft report were developed for city council consideration and public consultation. Public submissions would be analysed and the policy would go to a hearings panel. Constable Thorn said he would like Division St

News Fresh face for bulldozer By Georgia O’ConnorHarding A run-down Harrington Park bulldozer that was once a workhorse in Antarctica has undergone a transformation. Retired panel beater Wayne Charney and resident Ken Twemlow have successfully pulled a team together to ensure the bulldozer was given a makeover. The DC4 Caterpillar in Harrington Park, near Paeroa Reserve, Riccarton, was once based with the US Navy at McMurdo Station on the south tip of Ross Island. The facelifted machine has now been returned to Harrington Park so children can continue playing on it. Mr Charney said he was pleased the bulldozer was finished and grateful for the generosity from the community. “Bit of a load off my mind, it took a bit of coordinating but we got there in the finish,” Mr Charney said. The Connect Group’s Commercial Blast and

Paint centre was roped in, sandblasting and repainting the bulldozer for free. The centre’s suppliers New Zealand Coating Supplies also chipped in, donating paint for the project. The city council offered to pay about $600 to Elevate Crane Truck Services, who transported the machine to and from the Connect Group’s Com-

mercial Blast and Paint centre site. The Western News learnt in August from mechanics at Gough Group, they were certain the bulldozer came to the city in the early 1970s. It most likely looked after Williams Field, a airfield serving McMurdo Station and Scott Base. Mr Charney is now looking to make a plaque to place with the bulldozer.

Andrew King reports on how they went Water polo The Burnside High girls water polo team were crowned South Island secondary school champions after beating St Margaret’s College by a goal at Jellie Park Recreation and Sports Centre in Christchurch. Burnside goalie Sophie Williamson was named most valuable player of the tournament and, alongside Ella Dowling, Ella Bampton and Flynn Marshall, was named in the South Island secondary schools tournament team. Volleyball The Burnside High girls volleyball team’s quest for a third division 1 national title was halted after a loss in the semi-final to Whakatane’s Trident High 3-1 on Thursday in Palmerston North. Burnside bounced back to

beat St Mary’s 3-1, claiming third place on Friday. The team started off with a hiss and a roar, not dropping a set in their pool play matches against Tauranga’s Otumoetai College and Napier Girls’ High before finally losing a set on Wednesday to Rotorua’s Western Heights High. Triathlon The New Zealand schools triathlon championships were held on Thursday and Friday in Wanganui with a number of western schools sending their best athletes to compete in 20 different events.

“I’ve competed for the last six years from when it all begin in 2011 as a Trans-Tasman competition; it’s been gaining momentum ever since the UK joined in 2013 and this year France competed for the first time. “Now that the competition has been set for Ireland in 2018 we’ve had interest from Scotland, Germany, Italy and Spain. Even though France were newcomers last year, they took out the title so there’s no doubt in my mind these new countries will raise the bar even higher,” says Winder.

Hornby High School

Hornby High School

The first steps in the major redevelopment of Hornby High School have been taken with the library and administration building vacated and the staff and students accommodated in temporary structures elsewhere on the school grounds. The vacated buildings are now awaiting demolition, principal Robin Sutton says, with the Ministry of Education soon to announce the successful contractor for the construction of the first new building. The 80-metre-long, L-shaped building will occupy the footprint of the present building as well as a large open area on the school grounds. In addition to the administration

department and library, this expansive building will also house the science, art and technology departments, the whare, student café and the Learning Commons area (formerly the library). The first stage of the rebuild project includes a new gymnasium complex of basketball-court size, which will sit alongside the existing gymnasium. A key feature of the building will be flexibility. As Mr Sutton points out, it is expected to last for many decades, but there is no way of knowing how education methods might change and what the requirements of teachers and students might be, even in 10 or 20 years’ time. For that

AWAITING COPY Ad Number: MS3364 Artwork: MS3364 Size: 18x8 Description: HORNBY HIGH SCHOOL Account: Colour: F Filename: MS3364

reason this and all the school’s new buildings have been designed on flexible rather than rigid, old-school lines. Contractors are expected to set up on site within one to two weeks following the demolition, with construction likely to start by late May, Mr Sutton says. Another innovation at Hornby High, which doesn’t involve a new build but rather a re-design, has been the development of the performing arts school, which has seen buildings being remodelled and the auditorium, drama and music departments incorporated under one roof. “Already this has brought more

S &T

collaboration between teachers from the two departments, and students working together on projects,” Mr Sutton says. The principal has a vision for his school and his students as ‘A centre of creative excellence’, and this is based around three goals – learning, well-being and a willingness to take risks. “It’s an ongoing process and we are already seeing signs of improvement, with students gaining increased self-confidence and self-belief. It’s very rewarding to see that.”

A centre of creative excellence

Te Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka

In 2016 we reconsidered our vision as a school, and resolved that our aspiration is to be ‘A centre of creative excellence’ in everything that we do, whether visual arts or chemistry, volleyball or music. The world demands fewer people who can do repetitive tasks and more people who can think creatively and critically. In doing this we haven’t forgotten the importance of the strong relationships that we build with all of our students, and the importance of individualising learning pathways so that we come as close as we can to meeting every individual student’s needs. With term one gone, there is such

wonderful evidence of our students embracing our vision for creative excellence, and everything that it demands. Our focus is firmly on improved academic performance. Central to that is our participation in the Manaiakalani Outreach programme that causes learning using an approach called ‘Learn Create Share’. Chromebooks are vital to support student learning and the evidence is growing almost daily to show that this has a massive positive effect on student learning. Thank you to all whanau who have so far been able to make this significant investment in their tamariki’s education. Our relationships with students and whanau and vital, and we continue to emphasise these as the essential base for all learning. Our student group performing at Polyfest in March were everything that we could want, while we also saw the re-emergence of rugby league as a sport at Hornby High School with teams in both the secondary schools junior and senior league Nines competitions. Their performances revealed a depth of talent that bodes well for the next few years. Their approaches on the field were also examples of students taking calculated

risks in the approaches to sport, and examples of the sort of risk taking and leadership that we have set as a strategic goal for the school. We are very proud of them all.

A BUZZ OF ACTIVITY The development of Hornby’s Waterloo Business Park is progressing at an impressive pace, assistant development manager Joel Webber says. “It’s a dynamic and constantly evolving landscape. There are currently 12 individual sites under construction and we are expecting ground to be broken on a further three sites in the near future, so there’s a real buzz of activity on-site at the moment.” Roading work presently underway in the area will boost the profile of the park once it is completed, Mr Webber says. “The NZTA-sponsored realignment of Pound Road through to Main South Rd is progressing well, with completion programmed to occur in the fourth quarter of 2017. This will significantly increase heavy vehicle movements along Pound Rd and provide unparalleled profile and visibility to Waterloo Business Park sites with frontage to Pound Rd,” Mr Webber says. “We understand that the programmed stage two of this work, which will eventually connect an extended Pound Rd to the Southern Motorway extension between Springs RD and Rolleston, has been fast-tracked for completion ahead of the original three-year timeframe. “Since our last update, Waterloo Rd has been diverted and the course of the new road runs internally within Waterloo Business Park, which fits part of the bigger roading upgrades and realignments in the area.” In terms of land subdivision, Waterloo Business Park has only a further two stages of development to deliver (Stages 5 and 6) prior

to completion of the project, Mr Webber says. Stage 5 (6.3ha) is programmed to be completed and titled by early August 2017, while Islington Green, Waterloo Business Park’s central Parkland, measuring nearly 24,000sqm, will be completed as part of the Stage 5 works. Mr Webber says Islington Green will deliver “unprecedented open/green space and recreational facilities within a business park context for staff, visitors and local residents to enjoy”. Stage 6 (6.87ha) will round out the land subdivision at Waterloo and completion is expected by the fourth quarter 2017, he says. To support the commercial development, there are plans to redevelop the historic Islington Meat Processing Plant as a retail precinct, with a focus on retaining and redeveloping a number of the historic, Victorian-era industrial buildings. To be known as Islington Square, this will provide a comprehensive convenience retail offering within the business park, Mr Webber says. “We have had a number of studies commissioned that estimate that once it’s completed, built-out and fully operational, Waterloo Business Park will have between 3000 and 5000 employees. “With so many employees on site, it was a logical progression to provide a convenience retail offering within the development,” Mr Webber says. Uses under consideration include food & beverage, pharmacies, drycleaners, and childcare facilities.

MORE REASONS FOR SHOPPERS TO VISIT THE HUB Already a huge drawcard for Hornby shoppers, The Hub Hornby is now offering even more reasons for people from there and right around the city to visit, with school holiday attractions, new shops and a new customer service. Bound to create a buzz, Lego will be at The Hub during the April school holidays. From Tuesday, April 25 until Saturday April 29 between 11am and 2pm every day, children of all ages will be able to have an authentic Lego experience. Brought in from Australia, the Lego immersive zone features Lego build challenges and other Lego-themed activities, all within a special Lego-themed area. Stores that sell Lego at The Hub will also be promoting their Lego ranges at this time. “Lego has such a universal appeal,” centre manager, Jason Marsden says. “Whilst it has been around since 1932 it has stayed very current, both with the technology it now incorporates and

partnerships with some great movie franchises such as the very popular Star Wars range.” Another new arrival at The Hub is the brand-new Spark store. Situated at the north end of the new food court, the store features an open-plan layout, timber finishes and large digital screens on the two main walls. The most apparent feature of the new site is the large, glazed end wall, which faces north

and lets lots of natural light into the site. From the food court, the natural light and external view draws the eye to the store. The introduction of plastic gift cards at The Hub means the days of dog-eared gift vouchers or vouchers that have gone through the wash are now over. Available in a choice of two designs with matching holders, the new gift cards are a convenient way to buy a gift for that hard-to-shop-for person, or a

great way to reward staff. The cards can be loaded with any amount and used at almost every shop in the centre. A quick and easy online page will tell customers how much credit is left on a card, so all the value can be easily used and balances tracked. Using a new card is even easier – it takes just a simple swipe in the Eftpos terminal with no PIN required.

Three of their staff live in Hornby (and just walk to work), then three in Rolleston, Leeston and the furthest away is from Ilam. Many clients and staff know each other from school or various activities their children are involved in – even dance school for one of the staff.

Navy is one of the most popular colours this season. Best of all, because it’s a darker shade of blue, it is both flattering and slimming, too. It’s also a better alternative to black, as it’s less harsh and carries an air of sophistication. Victoria Tait believes navy is most certainly the new black.

As the name suggests, Just Bagz in Dressmart Hornby is filled with hundreds of bags, with the main focus being on travel bags of every description. This family-run business, owned and operated by Graham and Julieann Griffiths, specialises in quality luggage from leading manufacturers including Samsonite, Eminent and Riccardo, with 90 per cent of the stock being brought in by the couple. Graham has been in the industry for over 40 years, covering manufacturing, wholesaling and retailing, so with that experience and knowledge he can advise customers on the right bag to suit their requirements and budget. The bag purchased may depend on how many people will be using it, for example a family, how they are travelling – whether by road or air, and how much they want to take with them, or bring back. The first choice customers have, is between hard and soft luggage and this comes down to personal preference, Graham says. In both types there is a huge selection of sizes, styles and fashion colours – with modern luggage also being much more user-friendly. Ninety per cent of bags now have four wheels, making them very easy to manoeuvre and transport. Just Bagz also has a range of travel accessories including TSA locks and adaptors, passport holders and luggage labels. There is also a wide selection of backpacks – adult sizes in various styles, and children’s styles with novelty designs of their favourite cartoon characters. Also on display are wallets, shoulder bags and handbags in both leather and man-made materials, in a wide range of prices. So, call in for a browse, and have a chat to Graham or Julieann about what you are looking for. They will be very happy to give you some advice for your travel needs.

Heat pump specialists offer expertise & hot prices As winter approaches and thoughts turn to home heating, the idea of having a heat pump installed is seen as an ideal and cost-effective solution for many homeowners.

That’s where advice from residential heat pump specialists DC Installation Services can be invaluable. A small Christchurch owned and operated business run by husband and wife Daniel and Mel Cooper, DC Installation Services not only has the heat pump expertise and experience, it also has the buying power to offer customers top-brand heat pumps at very competitive prices, Daniel says. “We can come to your home to carry

out a site inspection and then advise on the best heat pump for your situation. We can give a quick,on-the-spot quote with no obligation. Once you book us, installation is done quickly too, and we offer a full guarantee on our workmanship for the life of the unit.” The company supplies all the major brands, but highly recommends Mitsubishi Electric heat pumps, as they believe the quality and reliability exceed

that of other brands on the market. “Mitsubishi Electric has carried out extensive research and development to produce heat pumps that are specially designed to work efficiently in our climate,” says Daniel. Another advantage is that customers having an existing heat pump replaced with a Mitsubishi Electric model can use the existing pipe work, which cuts down on the cost.

Stephanie Bushell “It will make the whole area much better.” From late April, Hornby residents will have the opportunity to have their say on the planned Southwest Leisure Centre when the Christchurch City Council begins the consultation process. At present there are three potential sites for the new centre – Denton Park, Kyle Park and Warren Park, with residents being able to state their preference, or suggest another site. As part of the consultation, the council will also ask if residents want the pool, library and service centre to be built in the same locality or separately. The consultation will run from late April through until June, which will enable groups that meet monthly to discuss the options when they meet in May. Council representatives will be going out to meet the local residents and will also be

contacting all the schools in the area. Councillor Vicki Buck says there will be lots of opportunity for formal and less formal feedback, with formal drop-in centres at a number of venues, meetings with all groups who use the parks and also newspaper advertising. “The council’s ‘Have your say’ will seek people’s views as well as many other ways including signs at the parks and we’ll ask all local schools and preschools to put it in their newsletter. There will also be a letterbox drop to all neighbours,” Ms Buck said. Western News canvassed Hornby shoppers about their thoughts on the planned centre and what facilities they would be most likely to use. Hornby resident Stephanie Bushell said she would use all the facilities.

Carl Dodds

“I would definitely use the pool.”

“A nice addition to Hornby.”

“I have young nieces, so for them the pool will be brilliant. It will make the whole area much better.” Audrey Kimble of Hornby said she would use the library. “I go to the library here all the time, and it would be nice to have a bigger library. A new place to go would be lovely.” Lyndsay Ellis, also a local Hornby resident, said he would definitely use the pool. His wife Elizabeth agreed, saying she goes to the Graham Condon pool, but it’s a long way to go, so it would be good to have a pool closer to where they live. Hornby resident Carl Dodds said the pool would be a “nice addition to Hornby”. Most people spoken to believed that Denton Park would be the best location for the new centre.

Dr Chris Hendry, a health service researcher, said that before building new facilities councils needed to look at the demographics of the particular area, to see what was needed and what was most appropriate. “There should also be a point of difference between community hubs like this, so they are not competing with each other,” Dr Hendry said. It would be a good idea if the new Southwest Leisure Centre had a pool that was suitable for the elderly to use, she said. “It needs to be an indoor pool or at least have some roof cover. I also think it would be good if rest home residents from the local area could be brought to the pool,” she said.

A quirky little coffee shop in Hornby is set to become a destination for anyone who enjoys freshly made food and good coffee in a quiet, cosy spot where they can chat. Owned and operated by Rebecca Robertson, Catering in a Box is built almost entirely from recycled pallets, and was constructed by Rebecca herself. “I have a creative background and I’ve always tried to build my own furniture and upcycle where I can. I had a vision for the café and it turned out to be much more than my vision,” Rebecca says. Having built her café, Rebecca, who is also a former truck driver, turned her wide-ranging talents to creating delicious food for her customers. “I bake everything from scratch. I use free-range eggs and I don’t use any pre-mixes. My passion for food comes from my granddad who taught me to cook from a very young age.” The selection of food includes pies, sausage rolls, filled rolls, muffins and cakes, which customers can buy to take away or sit and enjoy. “It’s quiet here, so people can have a conversation without a lot of background noise,” Rebecca says. “I also have mums coming in for a takeaway coffee and going to Branston Park with their children.” Catering in a Box can also cater for your next event, corporate or private, from platters to buffet and even the cake. Catering in a Box is located in Witham Street, off Amyes Road. Opening hours are from 7.30am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday.

The Land Cruiser has ride quality to envy, it floats over bumps and ruts, yet has the rugged essentials so that off-road travel can be completed capably. And that is the secret of Land Cruiser, it is soft and sultry to drive in the everyday environment, yet it is technically superior when it comes to life off-the-beatentrack. I took the evaluation car on a riverbank route which follows the Ashley River, it was perfect for the role with huge grip and drive programs which can be dialled in depending on the surface likely to be encountered.

Don’t expect Toyota’s big Land Cruiser 200 to change much in the next few years. The reason being is that the platform on which it is based has already served the test of time in terms of how it has been engineered for purpose. It has also been constantly upgraded to earn the reputation as one of the industry’s best off-road drivelines. The ladder chassis, the four-wheel-drive mechanicals and the big engine all combine to provide a vehicle which is an off-road champion and a station wagon/sport utility vehicle with few competitors. The Land Cruiser 200 has just had another make-over, and I think that is all you can expect from Toyota and Land Cruiser at this stage. The changes Toyota has made to the Land Cruiser go a long way to keep the model fresh without compromising its ability. For 2016 the Land Cruiser gets new frontal treatment – bonnet, grille and bumper – while

Convenience features are too numerous to mention but there are the usual high profile items such as satellite navigation, electric driver’s seat, four-zone climate control, sophisticated audio and complex trip computer, the latter displayed through two digital dash panel readouts. At almost 5m the Land Cruiser makes no apologies for its size, but it has ability in a corner which adds to the feeling of control, it sits solidly on the road, while steerage is relatively precise through huge tyres (285/60 x 18in Yokohama Geolander). The Land Cruiser is most certainly an off-road champion, yet it also serves in the every day role. Thousands of buyers new and pre-owned from Japan will attest to that, there are many on our roads, and the facelift model builds heavily on that success.

PRICE Lexus GSF, $174,900 DIMENSIONS Length, 4915mm; width, 1845mm; height, 1440mm CONFIGURATION V8, rear-wheel-drive, 4969cc, 351kW, 530Nm, eightspeed automatic. PERFORMANCE 0-100km/ h, 4.6sec FUEL USAGE 11.3l/100km The Lexus F series cars have always been one of my favourites from the marque. It all started with the introduction of the IS series in 2007; that car was available with a 5-litre V8, the concept of a big engine in a small car has always appealed to me. There have been several V8s across the Lexus lineup before and since, although I think it would be fair to say that the 5-litre V8 has been Lexus’ best kept secret given that today the brand has a huge emphasis on hybrid power. That aside, a new generation GS F has landed and, as you can guess, the F represents V8, the same 4969cc unit which has powered the performance arm of the Lexus brand. The GS is a lot bigger than the IS mentioned in my introduction, but performance isn’t hindered, the GS F is a monster regarding power output and performance, and it arrives in a coupe-like sedan body style which oozes desire and practicality. Landing here at $174,900, the GSF also comes loaded with goodies, and much of that is sight unseen. It has all of the latest technical components which combine for safety and

performance. It is a complicated car which is designed for high-speed motoring but also has the manners which promote casual driving for city speeds. However, it is mostly a car which beckons for the open roads, and there are driverselectable sport mode protocols which can be tailored to suit any driving style or conditions. In simple mechanical terms, the GS has a longitudinally-mounted engine up front with drive channelled through an eight-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels. Up front, the engine is rated with a massive 351kW and 530Nm of torque. If you take into account that peak power is available at 7100rpm and torque across a wide spread from 4800rpm to 5600rpm, it is not only a powerhouse, but it revs freely to the top end and is strong from all points of the rev band. Lexus claim a 4.6sec from a standstill to 100km/h time, and by my stopwatch, it will lunge from 80km/h to 120km/h in 3.8sec. These are quick times which easily satisfy, and if you are letting the engine breathe freely it affords a sound that is truly enticing, it wails and thunders, albeit with a little help from the

rear audio speakers. Such are the power outputs a lot is asked of the traction control system. Even with huge rear rubber (275/35 x 19in), the grip is challenged, the low profile Michelin tyres are as good as you can get in a sporty car, but under load even they struggle. The fully independent front wishbone/rear multiple link system aids traction along with providing a fabulous, comfortable ride. In standard mode the ride is glorious, and even if you select the sports modes which firm the suspension, there is little compromise in ride quality. I took the test car on the road I only use for quick cars, the route to Lake Coleridge Village is a mix of corners which will test any chassis. The GS was in its element in the quick and slow stuff. It has steering to envy, feedback and control is millimetre precise, turn-in is direct, and body balance perfectly even. With the force of the engine out of a corner it is a car which pleases the driver immensely; and, of course, if a corner looms a little too quickly, huge brakes with Brembo calipers quickly slow speed, pedal feel is solid

and totally reassuring. It’s hard to believe that with so much performance on offer the GS F also beholds the Lexus concept of luxury, the entire in-cabin area is an experience to be in. Not only is there every conceivable convenience item, but that area is laid out so that five people can enjoy the driving experience. As much as I enthused with the engine outputs, it also delivered respectable fuel usage readouts. My five-day average constantly listed around 12.9-litres per 100km/h (22mpg). That sits well with Lexus’ claim of 11.3l/100km (25mpg) on a combined cycle average. The GS F is also a car which you could enjoy as an occasional on-track experience. The first time I was acquainted with the car was on the sealed track at Ruapuna’s Mike Pero Motorsport Park. I was a passenger with a professional race driver at the wheel. The GS F responded to the high-speed workout just as if it was built for competition; it is an all-rounder which, in comparison to other desirable sports cars, seems all so affordable.

Jessica Macartney and Brent Tomlinson display the State of Mind jersey the players wear. The Hornby Rugby League Club is one of two Christchurch league clubs that has put in place a programme designed to foster a healthy mental state in its players. Recognising the devastating effects that can occur if mental health issues are not addressed, the NRL has developed its NRL State of Mind grass roots programme. Now in its second season, it comprises a six-step recognition process targeted at club leadership level – club administrators, coaches, managers and senior members. Australian Jessica Macartney, community manager – NRL Health, who was in Christchurch recently to present the programme, says the idea is to change the culture of the clubs by educating these leaders about mental health and how to deal with difficulties young players may have around mental health, and passing this on to them through mentoring. “Each club has its own needs,” Jessica says, “so it’s a matter of working out what’s best, and we do this through the six-step recognition process. It takes two seasons to get through the six-step process.” In 2016 there were five New Zealand clubs and 30 Australian clubs participating in the programme. This year a further five clubs have joined the programme in New Zealand, and in Australia, after a substantial State Government funding boost, there are 105 clubs going through the programme, Jessica says. Two leading NRL players, Simon Mannering and Tofofoa Sipley, have been appointed as Ambassadors for NRL State of Mind in New Zealand. As stated on the NRL State of Mind website, the key outcomes of the programme are: to

reduce the stigma around mental ill health within the club and community; increase mental health literacy across grassroots rugby league clubs; and stimulate help-seeking behaviours of club members and community. The outline of the programme was introduced at the Hornby Rugby League clubrooms in May 2016, and that meeting drew a good crowd of club members, players and friends, who got right behind the concept, club president Brent Tomlinson says. “People knew it was needed, that something had to be done. They just didn’t know how, so this came at just the right time.” The club has set up a special Education Centre where the programme is presented, equipped with sound system, computers and screens. The redecoration of the room and the installation of equipment were carried out by club members in their free time, with the costs covered by fundraising. “Our teenage members can also come in here if they want some time out in a safe, comfortable environment,” Brent says. As part of the State of Mind programme, and to reinforce the message, all the teams wear the special State of Mind jersey when they are playing. Hornby Rugby League Club has produced Kiwis and other representative players and coaches over the years. Later this year, members and local residents will have the opportunity to see some of the world’s current top rugby league players in action, when they come here to compete in the Rugby League World Cup taking place between October and December.

There have been more celebrations in the House of Travel Hornby office recently as the team have recently been named ‘Best performing Small Outlet’ in New Zealand for House of Travel for the second year in a row. “We are absolutely delighted with the win,” says owner/ operator Paula Waldeck. “We are only two and a half years old, so to have this title under our belt twice is such a credit to our fabulous team,” she says. As the temperatures in Christchurch cool down, that’s when people start thinking seriously about winter breaks in warmer climes, Paula says. And the hot destinations this season, are the South Pacific islands – especially Fiji and Rarotonga. “These destinations are popular because they are close, safe and easy to travel to. And with the direct flights now on offer to both destinations from Christchurch, not going via Auckland or Sydney, it’s much easier not having to negotiate another airport – plus it means more time on the beach.” Cheap travel to Europe is the other big news of the moment, Paula says. “These deals are the most competitive I’ve ever seen. Destinations like Greece and Spain, for example, are great places to be during the New Zealand winter and we look forward to organising trips to exciting places like these for our clients.” The consultants at House of Travel Hornby are all passionate about travel themselves, as well. Christine Gilliver has just returned from a 10-day, five-star trip to Japan, which she says was “amazing”, especially visiting the mountains. Kirsty Stewart is heading off to India this month, Shaunice Ross has just come back from Fiji and will be travelling to The Philippines in May. All these diverse travel experiences enable the consultants to advise their clients on what to expect and how to make the most of the various destinations they visit. This month House of Travel Hornby will be welcoming a new member to the team – senior consultant Amanda Ellis. Amanda has a wealth of experience in the travel industry, and is another keen traveller. Her next trip will be to the Great Barrier Reef. House of Travel Hornby is located at 40 Carmen Road, with easy parking right outside the door, so call in soon and start planning your winter holiday with one of their friendly and knowledgeable consultants.

Also, as we are associated with all major brands, we are able to repair these under warranty if they are still within the warranty period.

Under the New Zealand Building Code, all buildings, including residential, need to be suitably ventilated, either with opening windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this provision is to safeguard people from illness or loss of amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are many benefits to forced, or mechanical, ventilation over opening windows, including warmth, security, reduction of outside noises and reduction of condensation. Traditional domestic ventilation systems are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from outside via the roof space and force the stale air out through gaps around windows and doors. The incoming air from these systems has to be heated or cooled to keep the house warm in winter or cool in summer. The Smooth-Air HEX390 is a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It extracts air from the house and at the same time brings in fresh air. These two streams of air pass through a heat exchanger, which warms incoming air in winter and cools in summer if air conditioning is being used. This means that up to 80% of the energy which would be

wasted using a traditional positive pressure system is recovered, resulting in significant energy savings and therefore lower heating or cooling costs. Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation systems have been considerably more expensive than traditional positive pressure systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390 balanced pressure system can be installed for a similar price as a traditional positive pressure system.

A more youthful appearance When it comes to dentures, Christchurch people have access to world-leading techniques and oral aesthetics right on their doorstep. At his Montreal St studio Lovebite, internationally-renowned dental technician Richard Greenlees creates beautiful bespoke dentures with small nuances in the fabrication, colour and shape and even slight imperfections to create a uniquely individual smile. Not only do Lovebite teeth look real, the whole structure and shape of the patient’s face is transformed with Richard’s top-ofthe-line dentures – something he calls his signature ‘denture lift’. “With appropriate facial support, the facial tissues are brought back into the correct position, the lips are reformed, and beauty is restored,” he says. It is the interior architecture of a Lovebite denture that helps to create a more youthful appearance by recovering the face and skeletal shape that can be lost after years of wearing dentures. As the smile is transformed, so is the patient’s confidence, and the way they feel about themselves. There is no need for

For more information or to book an appointment phone 379 1222 or call into the studio at 402 Montreal St.

These Lovebite dentures have been handcrafted by internationally-renowned dental technician Richard Greenlees to closely resemble natural teeth, resulting in a beautiful smile, tailored to the patient’s character and individuality.

dentures to look false. Richard takes a great deal of satisfaction in making bespoke dentures that look 100 percent real and natural, personally guiding his patients through the transformation process, to craft a smile that reflects their individuality and personality, and recreates their natural predenture smile. Richard’s vast experience includes 15 years running his own clinic in the prestigious Harley St, London, where he treated people from all walks of life, from barrow boys to the rich and famous, politicians, actors and musicians. His techniques are recognised as worldleading amongst his international peers and he is regularly asked to lecture and run courses worldwide. Miles Cone (DMD, MS, FACP, CDT), a prosthodontist from Oregon, US, said

in November 2015: “Richard Greenlees’ craftsmanship is as stunning as it is unique. There is liberation in the calculated imperfection, indeed an asperity that reflects a purely human element”. In addition to dentures, Richard also carries out crown and bridge, veneer and implant work, in conjunction with likeminded dental surgeons who complement his creative and aesthetic work. “Teeth are as different as fingerprints and vary greatly depending on a person’s age, sex and race. Dentures from Lovebite reflect this, and are as unique and individual as the people they are made for,” says Richard. There is nothing more satisfying for Richard, than to see his patients leave the Lovebite studio with their self-confidence and identity restored, as well as their smile.

A natural approach to health

WARNING: A hot paint-stripping gun and dry wood is a dangerous combination.

Take care when stripping paint By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk Management Officer ABOUT ONCE a year we get called to a house that has been set on fire with a paint stripping heat gun. Of course, houses that have paint of so many coats and thickness that they require a heat gun, are normally made of timber, generally many years old and dry as a bone. We had one of these fires on Tuesday in Jutland St, North New Brighton. Thankfully, this time the occupants of the house noticed the wisps of smoke and called the Fire Service nice and early. So that a garden hose and a thermal imaging camera check for hot spots were all that was needed. Sometimes the result is much worse. It pays to check for any gaps between weatherboards before starting. Birds or rodent nests in wall cavities are often responsible for fire development. Don’t burn your house down trying to improve it. Smoke was also seen seeping out of a house by neighbours in Skipton St, Mairehau, a week ago. This time it turned out to be muffins too long in the oven so it was a matter of clearing the smoke away for the attending crew. Sad for the St Albans watch that attended. They like muffins. Daylight saving ended on Sunday. If you haven’t already done it, take the time to replace the batteries in your smoke alarms.

What do you consider to be the main moderator of your health? Do you consider what you eat to be the number one influence on the way your body operates, or is it the amount and type of exercise? Maybe you feel that the way you handle or deal with the stress of modern life to be the major determinant in how well and healthy you are. It could be that you feel there is a more spiritual component at play or that your genes or family history determines your health. What about health literacy? Is there a correlation between your knowledge of your own body’s workings and how healthy you are? Health literacy is about having the ability to obtain, understand and process information and services related to health and to make appropriate health decisions based on this knowledge. All of these things play an important role in health and obviously some will have more of a role than others depending on the individual. How you understand and choose to deal with your health is a complex issue involving many influences. As a natural health practitioner I see my role as being

someone that can help other people to recognise the importance of these moderators, identifying the ones that are central to their health and to give them the tools and knowledge to make the choices they want to in order to achieve their health goals. I help people understand their health - explaining tests and diagnosis’s as well as researching treatments available to them. The most important approach to your health is one that is informed - we need to remember that we have choices and that it is our responsibility to question, research, explore all of the moderators involved in this aspect of our lives. No matter how you choose to deal with your health, if you are feeling uninformed, confused, frustrated, blasé or overwhelmed reach out to someone to help you feel more knowledgeable. I don’t believe there is one single approach to health (or to anything in life!), at times this is overwhelming especially if you are dealing with a chronic or life threatening issue. This is the time when you want someone to tell you the one thing that you can do that will turn things around. Unfortunately even in these

The Leisure Centre at McKenzie Lifestyle Village McKenzie Lifestyle Village is in the final stages of completion. There are still great sites available and we also have a number of affordable villas ready for immediate occupation. Our beautiful Leisure Centre was opened last year and the pools, gymnasium and library and lounge area are in use daily. Outside, the bowling green is very popular along with Petanque, Mini-golf and Table Bowls. By next summer the Croquet Lawn will also be available. The residents enjoy an enviable resort style lifestyle. It is also surprisingly affordable. A former Christchurch resident, Judith, says “We couldn’t have all this for what we are paying if we were still in Christchurch.” Another resident, David, says “my wife and I have never been so well off as we are now we moved to McKenzie Lifestyle Village.” There are fuller testimonials on the village homepage at mlv.co.nz.

Geraldine is a great little town with a very pleasant microclimate. There is plenty to do in and around the town with art galleries, theatre and cinema, interesting shops and boutiques, two museums and a wide range of good places to eat. For the more adventurous there are river and forest walks nearby, opportunities for biking and a choice of two local golf clubs.

situations a multi-pronged approach is needed and that is where employing the guidance of a natural health practitioner can be of use. There are also times when a single approach has been exhausted and people are feeling like they have tried everything - often this is just a case of those people not being exposed to other choices and possible options.

Pain management Living with pain can be the hardest part of living with arthritis. For some forms of arthritis, the cause of the pain is often not well understood. There are over 620,000 New Zealanders living with a diagnosis of arthritis. That’s one in six, but one in two is over 75 years of age. Arthritis-related pain causes significant difficulties for many people. They find that it impacts on their ability to conduct everyday activities and to live life as fully as possible. Sleeping at night becomes a challenge and for many they hide their pain from family and friends. It’s important that those with arthritis pain seek advice from their GP, pharmacist or an Arthritis Educator.

Pain management programmes, (such as those held by Arthritis New Zealand), tend to work well for older people. There is a focus on what you can do rather than what you cannot do. Pain may limit some of the things that you can do, but it doesn’t have to control your life. You can learn ways to manage your pain. You may have to try different self-management techniques until you find what works best for you. The key points of pain management will be explored at the Workshops on 19th and 20th April. It is important that you ask for help when you need it. There is a great deal of information on our website www. arthritis.org.nz or call our helpline 0800 663 463

Golden Health Care Time Honoured Remedy Golden Healthcare Group’s position at the forefront of Canterbury’s residential care services is cemented by a state-ofthe-art facility being developed at Lady Wigram Retirement Village. The concept is to provide hotel-style accommodation for those residents who enjoy being part of a vibrant, social community. The group has already completed 50 villas with an additional 17 to be completed by early 2017. Until the full project is finalised, one of the villas built during the first stage of construction has been converted to accommodate social events such as bowls, happy hours, high teas and television viewing of sports fixtures. Once the project is complete, it will comprise 101 villas, 73 apartments, and 100 care beds. The proposed facilities will include a rest home, hospital, and dementia facilities, and permanent amenities such as a community centre, Bowling Green, swimming and spa pools, a gym, a theatre, a library, and a hairdressing salon. The villas will be offered in a combination of two and three bedrooms whereas apartment residents will have a choice between one and two bedrooms. The Lady Wigram Retirement Village is a short stroll from The Landing, the central retail hub of the Wigram Skies subdivision, and only a short drive to Hornby Mall, the Hornby Working Men’s Club and the city. Lady Wigram Retirement Village is one of eight facilities operated by Golden Healthcare Group that offer a variety of residential care services. The large Christchurch-based group is a privately owned provider that strives to support every aspect of aged care. Rest home care is provided in the Golden Age Rest Home and Brookhaven Rest Home, both of which also encompass retirement villages. Brookhaven also has a dementia care unit along with the dedicated Camellia Court, Albarosa, and Somerfield rest homes. Furthermore, the Hoon Hay Rest Home is a dedicated dementia wing, but the Hoon Hay House on the same site specialises in mental health. Within the facilities, there are plenty of opportunities to create unique environments for differing requirements for residents. Nursing care is provided by registered nurses, regular scheduled medical appointments and on-call doctors ensure residents’ health is well monitored. An activities co-ordinator ensures residents will never be bored and they participate in programmed activities, games, sing-alongs

with performances by visiting entertainers, library book exchange and exercise programmes. The group has four vans to utilise for residents outings. Each facility has its own kitchen and offers nutritious home-style meals and baking, and special diets are catered for. Golden Healthcare employs 260 at its facilities which care for about 350 residents. All staff are highly trained, experienced, and qualified in their roles. Each facility offers regular resident and family meetings to ensure feedback is encouraged, and dementia facilities also offer educational evening for families to understand the dementia process. Respite care is also provided at all facilities. The Golden Healthcare Group website goldenhealthcare.co.nz provides full contacts.

According to a country Doctor “D.C. Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an important part of a long healthy life. Dr. Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly consumed cider vinegar and honey had excellent health with many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even when well into their eighties. Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar and honey on arthritis can be remarkable with many patients reporting almost total relief after taking a course of the cider vinegar and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted calcium deposits and helped the body control calcium use. As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found regular administration of cider vinegar and honey at the onset of complaints such as the common cold, sinusitis, asthmatic attacks, hay fever, and childhood diseases such as chicken pox and measles, was accompanied by an improvement in the condition with symptoms either disappearing, or the conditions were extremely mild and soon over. Apple cider vinegar contains all the goodness of the apple in a form that is readily accepted by the body. Scientists have found over 90 different substances in ACV, among them 20 important trace elements, minerals, essential enzymes, a number of different acids including malic acid, amino acids and roughage in the form of potash and pectin.
