„„ By Noah Graham WORK TO address a lack of services, activities and facilities for youth in Waltham and Sydenham will start later this year. The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board is waiting on a report by city council staff, which will be presented in September, that will research into what youth, particularly teenagers, want for the area. Community board deputy chairman Jake McLellan said although there were plenty of facilities in the area such as ice skating and rock climbing but they tended to be aimed at a lower age group. “There is not the type of facilities in the area that a teenager would want to go to.” Mr McLellan said there has been a long-standing need for programmes and services for youth in the areas. He said one way to find out what youth want would be through a youth community board. •Turn to page 5

Tuesday May 9 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

A GOOD initiative on page 1 today – a bid to get facilities for youth in Waltham and Sydenham. Research is under way to find out what teenagers want and the findings will be presented to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board in September. If I was to add my five cents worth into the mix I’d say direct them to a sports club in the area – rugby, cricket, softball, league, netball, whatever takes their fancy. There’s nothing better to build character and discipline than to play in a team sport. I hope the report council staff are doing for the community board includes that idea. Speaking of sport, reporter Noah Graham profiles jiu-jitsu expert Paul Stokes on pages 6-7. He’s a sixth dan black belt through years of discipline and dedication. – Barry Clarke

News Protection planned for cyclists „„ By Noah Graham FLEXIBLE POSTS will be added along the edge of the Grove Rd, Addington, cycleway to prevent people driving onto it. City council planning and delivery transport manager Lynette Ellis said the posts will be installed in the ‘next few weeks’ to prevent people from driving onto it and ensuring user safety. Manuka Cottage manager Cherylan Davies (left) was delighted to hear city council were installing the posts after she was worried cyclists could be injured. She said it was only a matter of time before someone was hurt on the narrow road as, when passing each other, cars would often swerve into available gaps and that would often be the cycleway. “Anything that makes it safer for pedestrians and cyclists is a good idea,” she said. However, Mrs Davies said city council needed to monitor the road properly and make sure

In Brief SIGNS PLEASE RESIDENTS Somerfield residents are delighted to see the new school speed zones installed on Studholme and Somerfield Sts. The 40km/h signs were installed late last month. Somerfield Residents Association chairwoman Julie Tobbell said she was pleased to see the signs up making the area safer for children. SPARKS RD CONSULTATION Consultation on the Sparks Rd footpath opened yesterday. City council is proposing improvements on 381 Sparks Rd, outside the old Halswell Library, and the installation of a zebra pedestrian crossing over the left turning lane from Halswell Rd onto Sparks Rd. The consultation will close on May 29.

COFFEE CART AT QUARRY A coffee cart has been granted a spot at the Halswell Quarry, following a city council idea to get small businesses to set up in the space. The city council asked for expressions on interest in spring last year and Coffee Vice won a temporary lease to set up shop near the Singleman’s House. The decision to allow a vendor into the park was made after plans to convert the Singlemen’s House into a cafe were turned down. The cart is currently operating from Tuesday to Friday, 8.30am-2pm and Saturday to Sunday, 8.30am-4pm.

Veterinary practice

OUR VISIT TO UC DAVIS, CALIFORNIA Steve, Isaac and myself recently spent time at UC Davis, the #1 Veterinary school in the world. For 2 years running it has received this huge accolade and when you are there you can see why. It operates and is the size of a mini CHCH Public hospital. They are a teaching hospital as well as seeing referral patients and first opinion clients. Their specialities include 24/7 emergency and critical care, cardiology, neurology, ophthalmology, oncology and surgery. They were originally set up to see 5500 patients per year, last year they saw 50,000 patients. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and enthusiastic about being part of this college. It had a wonderful vibe... Isaac was hooked. Approximately 140 students get accepted yearly in to Davis, with around 10% being male. It cost about US$45,000 for tuition( $64000 NZL) and then there is living costs on top of that. Vet students on average come out owing US $135,000. These students have spent the previous 4 years obtaining an excellent undergraduate degree just to get accepted, majoring in science and maths. There are 30 colleges of Veterinary Medicine in the US and each year about 3000 students get accepted. About 40% of students who apply get accepted somewhere. In your 3rd year you start to branch off in your area of interest – either companion animal, equine, mixed practice or production animals. After their 4 year degree at Davis, most will apply for 1-2 year internship at another Veterinary College to further their skills in an area they are interested in. Davis don’t offer internships. Our freshman (first year) guide loves dentistry so her plans are to become a specialist in this field. After her internship, she then needs to apply for a residency at one of the 30 colleges, which could be anything from 3-5 years more study!! These are hard to come by, and you have to be the best of the bunch, although a Vet degree from UC Davis stands you in good steed. So to be a specialist in your field in the US takes between 13-15 years, and the debt these students accrue is massive, a few get scholarships, but most have to pay. I met a vet in her 40’s who still has a student loan. Steve spent 2 days tagging along with ophthalmology specialists, residents and students on rotation. First and second year students get at least 2 weeks of ophthalmology per year ( 27 years ago when I studied at Massey, 1 day was dedicated to “eyes”). He really enjoyed the collegial discussions on cases, sussing out all the latest equipment, chatting to the students and doing rounds with them. Steve came away pleased with his skills

and expertise in ophthalmology, although a few pieces of equipment caught his eye. Isaac and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hour tour of the entire faculty. Isaac loved the exotics hospital where they house and treat the reptiles, birds, rabbits, turtles etc. We also visited their raptor centre, home to rescued birds of prey that can no longer see or fly. He also enjoyed watching elbow arthroscopy on a Golden Retriever from a viewing room. He could see them cutting and sucking out torn cartilage from the video screen. What amazed me was the amount of people in theatre – 9 in all, including the chief surgeon, 2 residents, 3 anesthetists and 4th year students. There were so many people milling around keenly observing. They do MRI and CT here and even have a massive MRI machine that can fit a horse into. The most expensive patient to date was a spoodle who underwent dialysis for 18 months, visiting the hospital twice weekly to have all the toxins removed from her blood. Her final account was US$140,000! The most expensive piece of equipment is a linear accelerator used for radiation treatment for cancer patients costing a little over 1 million. Apparently one of the only surgical procedures NOT performed here at Davis is renal transplants as when attempted on cats over 10 years ago, the survival rate was poor. A handful of colleges perform renal transplants in cats including the Pennsylvania and Georgia College of Vet medicine. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at Davis and I thought how amazing, fun and expensive it would be to be a student now studying vet medicine at UC Davis. The students we met were just so absorbed, very happy and grateful to be at this world class faculty. I came out thinking I am so in the right profession. -Dr Michele McMaster

Riverbanks earmarked for clean-up „„ By Noah Graham GROUPS ARE getting ready to clean up riverbanks. This Saturday, hundreds of volunteers will don their gumboots to pick up rubbish littering Christchurch riverbanks for the annual Mother of All Clean Ups. Volunteers will line the AvonHeathcote Estuary as well as the Heathcote and Avon Rivers to try and clean out waste that is further polluting the rivers. Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust co-ordinator Tanya Jenkins said the cleanup, held on the eve of Mother’s Helene Day every year, Mautner was an opportunity to give a gift back to Mother Nature. “We were thrilled to see such an enormous turnout of caring people last year. “Close to 1300 members of the public tidied 156km of river bank and estuary edge,” she said. More than 20 tonnes of rubbish was collected last year which ranged from plastic bags to computers and even a sheep carcass.

RUBBISH: During last year’s Mother of All Clean Ups more than 1300 volunteers removed more than 20 tonnes of rubbish from the Opawaho/Heathcote River. ​

“We are hoping that we collect less this year as the aim of the event is to raise awareness of the issue and for individuals to take responsibility for their careful disposal of rubbish,” Mrs Jenkins said. Opawaho-Heathcote River Network co-chairwoman Helene Mautner said volunteers would not need to get into the water, they would just be cleaning the banks.

“We have a saying: If your feet get wet you’ve gone too far.” Dr Mautner said it was a great couple of hours to be involved in. The two-hour clean-up starts at 10am, with volunteers urged to register through ohr.co.nz, however, people are welcome to turn up on the day. Last year more than 50 community groups joined the clean-up.

Where to meet: Cashmere Stream Care Group – 10am, Penruddock Place. Cashmere Technical Football Club – 10.30am, Centennial Park beside the stream, behind where ‘first kicks’ is held.

Youth facilities in focus

•From page 1 Mr McLellan said he did not want to pre-empt the staff report but said a social facility like the Hornby Youth Hangout could be a good idea. “How could you be against the idea?” However, he said it was too early to start making any real plans as nothing was on the table yet. Youthtown Christchurch southern region area manager Amanda Murray said there was a lack of facilities for youth in the area and it was always hard to get teenagers to engage with community groups. She said sports clubs and church groups sometimes worked but they often added pressure teenagers did not want to deal with. Most of the time teenagers just want a place to hang out and socialise, she said. Ms Murray said a facility like the Hornby Youth Hangout would be a good idea for the area. However, she said if that was a path the board was wanting to go down, they would have to be serious about it and be willing to commit to the facility as well as providing a youth worker. There was less tagging and random violence in the area since the hangout in Hornby had been implemented, Ms Murray said.

How did you get into jiu jitsu? I was playing rugby for a few years and my old man knew a guy who was running a judo club at Bryndwr YMCA, except it wasn’t judo, it was jiu jitsu. It was something else to do besides rugby. So I started there in 1979 and I’ve stuck at it ever since then. What was it about jiu jitsu that you liked? I think at the time, it was very realistic. There was no gloves, it was full contact. There were knocked out teeth and I liked how it was realistic as a form of selfdefence. The discipline was great. Very, very disciplined. The instructor at the time would go around punch you OUR PEOPLE: Paul Stokes has taught Jiu Jitsu in Bromley for in the guts and kick you in years at the Old Scout Hall.

bath really to be honest when I started. We have light gloves these days, you can’t send people away with cut eyes and broken noses too much. We used to use real knives, too, for knife defences. We were told to throw and stab each other. I just liked that part of it, you know, it got the adrenaline going. We would be doing lapel breakouts or something and the sensei would shout out and the whole class would go all out for one to two minutes. It could be two on one, or three on one – it was a massive brawl. Then you would stop and you would go back to what you were doing. You’d have your guard ready because, if you were doing something, the other guy would smack you in the face or kick you.

martial arts onto apprentices The self-defence training you learned – have you used it outside of a dojo? I used to do a bit of bouncing and had to use it against knives to machetes to general street fighting. Only as self defence, though. I never used to go out looking for it. I bounced at the Dux Deluxe and the Redwood. Dux was a crazy place to bounce at. There was a wide variety of different people from your yuppies to your gang members. It could be quite a rough place at times, really. Especially on a Friday. I used to help teach the bouncers as well. Furui ryu is a specific form of jiu jitsu, what’s different about it compared to other forms of jiu jitsu. Jiu jitsu comes as a mixture of judo, karate and aikido. Some forms of jiu jitsu are more aikido, some are more judo and some are more karate. Most styles these days are more aikido. Our style has been more designed for the street and to be as realistic as possible without having too many injuries. By being realistic, we teach people proper self-defence that can be used to protect themselves. These days we’re not too hard on the students. We still

do full contact in gradings, but we wear a lot of gloves. We also do free fighting occasionally. How difficult is it to get a black belt in jiu jitsu? Very hard in our club. We don’t give away grades. We always make sure they do their time. If you train twice a week for the whole five and a half years you’d get it, but most people are more like six to eight years. I got my black belt in 1985 after about six years. Can you tell me a bit about your family? Both of my parents are Scottish. My mum’s passed away

but my dad’s still going. Dad was a painter and I learnt my trade from him as a painter. I was brought up in the Redwood area and stayed in Christchurch all my life, a part from a ninemonth trip to Australia. What is coaching like? There’s always people coming up through the grades who you can’t let down so you just carry on. We have a kids class as well as an adult class so you’ve just got to be there for them. We create a lot of discipline in our class and respect for each other so no one loses their cool and they behave themselves outside of the

dojo. They’re all aware they have to be responsible. You get a sense of accomplishment from watching the kids improve to a black belt. To watch their attitudes change through discipline and the pride of seeing them getting their grade – it’s amazing. We’ve had some kids who have had to fail their grading and they cry, and I just say, “look, you’re not a loser, you’re only a loser if you don’t come back”. They come back and they get the grade, and the smile on their face, it is just amazing to see that. How popular is jiu jitsu in New Zealand?

It’s getting more and more popular through cage fighting. We were the first jiu jitsu club in Christchurch and, since then, clubs have been popping up everywhere. However, today jiu jitsu is associated with Brazilian jiu jitsu, with cage fighting and MMA. But our style is quite different to that. How did the club start? It started in 1967 as Canterbury unarmed combat school. And then when John Bonniface came down in 1968, he got graded up to black belt to go to Japan and trained under Sugawara Geshu and came back with fuji ryu jiu jitsu and came up with our style in the early 1970s. What do you like to do in your spare time? I used to do an hour weights in the club everyday, but my joints don’t allow me to do that anymore. I’d go down and do a bit of boat fishing every chance I could get if I do have some free time. Fishing is a bit more relaxing. Try to knuckle around with the guitar a bit when I can. I’ve put that down for a while now. It’s been sitting there too long now. I learnt guitar about 20 to 30 years ago and I do need to get back into it.

Your Local Views Soil bleeds into waterways Cashmere Stream Care Group chairman Ken Rouse talks about the effect the Port Hills fires has had on nearby rivers and what needs to be done to save them THe Cashmere Stream, downstream of Sutherlands Rd, passes through rural land for some 2km and arrives at the confluence with Hoon Hay Valley waterway in gin clear condition. But it is at this stage that the Cashmere Stream begins its death by 1000 cuts from the inputs from tributaries on the Port Hills. There are three bogey tributaries for Cashmere Stream with large deposits of loess soil.

These are the Cashmere Valley, Hoon Hay Valley and Worsleys Valley waterways. In periods of no rain, such as in summer, these tributaries have little or no flow but each of them bleed sediment into the catchment during heavy rain events. The worst is the site of an active commercial Adventure Park and, unfortunately, this site is severely affected with its vegetation destroyed by the Port Hills fires. These tributaries make life difficult for the fresh water inhabitants because when it rains, they get a fresh smothering SCORCHED: The lack of vegetation on the Port Hills means more sediment is running off into nearby waterways. PHOTO: SHELLEY MCMURTRIE

of sediment. A bit like living in a smoggy Chinese city. Unfortunately, the fires have burned deep into all three of the Port Hills valleys and vegetation that was important against erosion has been lost. To reduce the sediment load from the hills, we need a two-solution approach. 1. Construct a series of large retention structures in each valley that will slow floodwater and assist settlement of the heavier sediment. Within the structure, create deep ponds that act as sink holes for sediment. Create them of sufficient size and depth so as to be useful for helicopter firefighting needs in the future. These structures could accommodate pastoral farming once established. 2. Assist the private landowners to the extent that they want help in replanting the lost forest areas and grass land. In the short-term, establishing some sort of cover on the bare land is critical. Note that in the short-term and until permanent soil stabilisation is achieved on the critical areas of the Port Hills, every effort must be made to keep soil in place. There are eco-friendly soil stabilisers that should be applied to sites which remain without cover as a matter of urgency.

You’d never see one in Cashmere/ Fendalton. Jemma Martin – I don’t think it’s necessary, with two McDonald’s, a Burger King, KFC and Subway, all at Eastgate mall just a few kilometres away. They should’ve gotten something to reflect the area. Vivienne Murchison – God. Just when there was a cool village-type vibe starting to happen there. There goes the neighbourhood. Stella Twentyman – There is a Burger King, a KFC and two McDonald’s in Linwood . . . Go there. Amanda Clarke – Perfect. People can drive through and get their McDonald’s then park up at Woolston Park to

eat it and dump their rubbish. Sophia Young – There’s one not far at Eastgate. They don’t really need it. Lorraine Isaacs – Hope people go to New World and buy real food instead. Hayden Allan – As bad as it is, if you want an area to thrive put a McDonald’s there. If they put a KFC or a McDonald’s in New Brighton, I’m sure it will take off. Rohan Bekker – Fast food equals rubbish on the street and in the river. Great. Ashley Rossouw – There is already a McDonald’s at Eastgate mall which is a twominute drive away. Not really needed in my opinion.

Hillmorton High School pupils took part in a rhythm workshop last week, which had them using African-style hand drums. The pupils were visited by Rhythm Interactive, which performed a workshop with year 7 and 8 music and international pupils. The drums were handed out to the pupils who were encouraged to join in with the show. Deputy principal Eleanor Sim said the workshop themes were ‘playing together as one’ and ‘actions speak louder than words’. As part of the ‘actions speak louder than words’ theme, the school show was performed without a single word being spoken.

RHYTHM: Keepsake Singers co-ordinator Steve Langley leads a sing along with his ukelele at Phillipstown Community Hub, a group helping people with memory loss through music. ​

Group makes music for those with memory loss „„ By Noah Graham FROM BEATLES’ classics to Elvis Presley’s best hits, a variety of songs are sparking strong memories for those experiencing memory loss. The Keepsake Singers group meets once a week and helps people with memory loss or dementia to sing along to 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s classic hits. The Muse Commu-

nity Music Trust member Jacinta O’Reilly said the hour-long sessions are a great way for older adults experiencing some form of memory loss to have a joint activity with friends and family. “It’s a lovely thing for someone to be able to do an activity with someone who is losing their memory.” She said with other community activities people

experiencing memory loss often lack confidence with most activities but the relaxed nature of the sing along allows them to freely join in. The songs include a range of pop hits which resonate with the participants, Ms O’Reilly said. She said the members are able to sing most of the lyrics as it taps into older memories which are often preserved.

Incorporating

„„ Mark Thomas, fire risk management officer I KNOW I’ve repeated the advice about looking when cooking dozens of times over the years and it looks very much like it’s never going to cease completely. But every now and then I despair a bit.  Like on Wednesday when within three-and-ahalf-hours fire trucks responded to three different cooking incidents.  A house completely filled with smoke from a forgotten pie in the microwave in Sockburn was followed by a pot on the stove, again filling the house in Kotare St and a further incident in Bryndwr where smoke inhalation was the result

for the elderly occupants. Any of these could have been much worse.  A life or a house gone.  But all of them were preventable.  Stay in the kitchen. The smell of burning in your home can be frightening for anyone.  More so if you’re blind.  The occupant of a house in Addington thankfully did the exact right thing, again on Wednesday, by

phoning 111 and having the local crew there within minutes. Turned out to be a tea towel smouldering on an element.  The potential here was a bit frightening. I’ve not mentioned arson here for a long time.  It’s still occurring but the removal of most of the empty houses in the red zone has made it less visible or newsworthy.  A drum of diesel spread along the road in the early hours last Sunday in Wigram was lit and left by whatever morons thought it was clever.  They’re still out there. As stupid and dangerous as ever.

Denture technicians keep abreast of industry developments As registered members of the New Zealand Dental Council, Ryan Carlton and his fellow technicians at Dentures Plus in Innes Road are required to undertake verified training at various courses every year, to upskill and keep abreast of new developments in the industry. “For example, our technicians Thomas Gu and Nicole Yee will be attending a two-day course later this year on the fitting of first-time dentures,” Ryan says. In addition, Nicole has recently spent four weeks in India as part of a course she is undertaking on maxilo facial work, which deals with artificial eyes, ears and noses. “This is a service we may potentially offer in the future,” Ryan says. Ryan himself has recently returned from the International Dental Show, which was held in Cologne, Germany. “It’s the largest trade show in the world for the industry, with manufacturers and suppliers from all over the world showcasing their products. There were over 2300 stands – it was really eyeopening.” Ryan says he was particularly interested in how digital technology is being incorporated into dentistry, for example 3D printing being used at different stages of denture manufacture such as the crown and bridge.

“It’s still in the very early stages, and it needs more development, but that’s where it’s heading,” Ryan says. He believes that in the future, people that make and fit dentures will be seen as architects rather than technicians, with patients being able to download the pattern for their dentures the architect has designed on computer, and print them on a 3D machine. In the meantime, he emphasises the importance of keeping dentures clean. Dentures Plus offers a full range of products for denture cleaning including denture cleaners, brushes and denture baths for soaking the dentures. Ryan particularly recommends Caldent denture cleaner, as it is non-abrasive and effectively removes stains, calculus and plaque. “It works wonders,” he says. “Years of stains and plaque can be removed with this product.” It can be purchased through the Dentures Plus website, www. denturesplus.co.nz, for delivery anywhere in Christchurch and throughout the country. Dentures Plus, 396 Innes Road, is open Monday to Thursday 8am-5pm and Friday 8am-2pm. To make an appointment for a consultation on denture fitting or repair, phone 385 5517.

Dentures Plus also offers a full range of products for denture cleaning.

WARM-UP: Halswell United’s under-13 boys and under-14 girls Kanga Cup sides played out a 1-1 draw against each other on Sunday as part of their preparation for July’s Kanga Cup competition in Canberra.

Halswell squads head to large youth tournament „„ By Andrew King FOR THE first time, Halswell United will send teams to compete in an Australian football tournament in Canberra. An under-14 girls side and under-13 boys team will head to the Kanga Cup in July. It is the largest international youth football tournament in the Southern Hemisphere, with more than 375 teams from a number of different countries competing. Halswell United general manager Sam Bunn said it was all about player development and it was the teams that wanted to go. Bunn said the girls team was looking to win in their maiden outing, while the boys would be competitive.

“It is all about experience, and this will provide quite a bit of that,” she said. The cup competition started in 1991 in Sydney with about 35 teams competing before it was moved to its current home in Canberra in 1993. Previous participating teams have hailed from Australia, United States, England, Denmark, Italy, Russia, Georgia, South Africa, South Korea, Chinese Taipei, Malaysia, Philippines, India, Indonesia, East Timor, Fiji and New Zealand. •Halswell United is still looking for sponsorship of its two Kanga Cup squads. Interested sponsors should email Sam Bunn at huafcgm@gmail.com

South African leads Cashmere first XI „„ By Andrew King SOUTH AFRICAN Lyle Matthysen thought he was destined to be a rugby player when he moved to New Zealand 12 years ago, but a chance encounter with the Cashmere Wanders led to a love of football. Matthysen, 18, is now captain of the Cashmere High first XI and a regular starter in the midfield for the Cashmere Technical Mainland Premier League side. Born in Cape Town, in the heart of Stormers country, Matthysen left when he was sixyears-old. A friend took him to a training when he was younger and he just fell in love with the beautiful game. He has been playing top grade football for the past four years, but still remembers one of his first blunders after making the Cashmere Tech side. “I was through on the keeper and totally tripped over the ball

in front a quite a few people,” he said. It did not deter him and now he sees his name in the starting

11 quite often. “It is something I really want to pursue as a career,” he said. He said the natural progression for most Kiwis is through an American college on a scholarship, a dream he is very keen to chase. “Ryan Nelson played for Cashmere and is a huge role model to me,” he said. He has had the privilege of playing with former Wellington Phoenix and All White defender Ben Sigmund and Canterbury United FC and All White mid-fielder Aaron Clapham. “Clapham is still in the Cashmere Tech side and is always giving us plenty of good advice,” he said.

Cashmere face St Andrew’s in second round „„ By Andrew King CASHMERE HIGH will play St Andrew’s tomorrow after recording a solid 3-1 win over Christchurch Boys’ High in the opening round of the Connetics schools premier first XI competition at the Christchurch Football Centre. Cashmere had a number of players on debut in its squad, with coach Tom Wilkinson saying Luke Tolan playing in central midfield had a brilliant start earning him man of the match. “He controlled the game very well last night and was a rock in front of the defence,” Wilkinson

said. “The game was fast-paced in the first half with both sides battling well.” Wilkinson said the team will be looking to work on consist-

ency as they look ahead to the game against St Andrew’s tomorrow. The last time Cashmere played St Andrew’s, the match ended in a 2-2 draw. Both teams are undefeated going into the second round with St Andrew’s beating Burnside 4-2. “They will be a tough opposition and we are relishing the challenge,” Wilkinson said. The game starts at 5.45pm.

New and quality used tyres for most makes & models If you need new tyres for your vehicle, JCM Direct is the place to go.

This family-run, independent tyre business in Birmingham Drive specialises in new and quality second-hand tyres. The business is owned by husband and wife Athol and Julie Hurst, with Julie being the one who runs the day-to-day operation and fits the tyres for customers, which is unusual in the male-dominated industry, she says. They stock a large selection of new tyres from a wide range of suppliers to suit your wheelbarrow, car, van, 4wd or trailer. “There are very few brands we can’t do,” Julie says. “We also have an excellent selection of quality second-hand 4WD tyres. Other services JCM Direct offers include puncture repairs, supply and fitting of new and second-hand alloy wheels, wheel alignments, replacement factory steel rims, rim repairs and lights. “We also specialise in old rims, from the 1930s to the 1970s, which people purchase for caravans and old trailers. The modern rims won’t fit those,” Julie says. “JCM Direct also do a lot of matching rims and tyres, so customers don’t have to buy a complete new set if only one needs
