Fire bug strikes again in Burnside, Ilam

Gillies hat at royal garden party

„„ By Julia Evans RESIDENTS ARE fearful a fire bug will claim lives after a series of sinister blazes in Burnside and Ilam. The latest fire burnt a wheelie bin against the side of an elderly woman’s home on Tudor Ave on Saturday. The Fire Service said she was lucky it didn’t spread to her house. Nearby Greers Rd resident James Wallace also had his wheelie bin set alight against the side of his property sometime after 11pm the previous weekend. His three children under the

Each year, the palace holds three summer garden parties.

age of 10 were asleep upstairs as the bin blazed below a bedroom window. “It’s attempted murder, the wheelie bin was up against the house and could’ve set it on fire and someone could’ve died,” Mr Wallace said. He said it’s particularly worrying that whoever is doing it is going onto people’s properties. As well as potential loss of life, the fire also caused extensive damage to the side of Mr Wallace’s house, which will cost thousands to repair. •Turn to page 6

Tuesday May 16 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

WHEELIE BINS today – what next tomorrow? That’s the big worry as an arsonist operates in Burnside and Ilam. Residents have every reason to be fearful. The arsonist has set alight wheelie bins and the fires have spread to adjacent dwellings. They have been lit late at night when people are sleeping. And as the arsonist gains in confidence he (and it is likely to be a he), will almost certainly step up the campaign. Police need to find him quickly. On a brighter note, Merivale designer Jenny Gillies will have her White Rose of York hat at one of three Buckingham Palace garden parties which start today. The hat was spotted by the wife of the North of England Horticultural Society Council chairman when Jenny was at the Harrogate Spring Flower Show last month. – Barry Clarke

THANKS for your patience...

as we install new pipes in Halswell What’s been going on? SCIRT has finished its earthquake repair programme, and at Council we’re continuing and expanding our work to maintain, repair and improve the city’s roads and underground pipes. If you live or travel around South East Halswell you may have noticed the work underway on our new wastewater scheme which will service more than 5000 new houses. We’re constructing more than 8km of wastewater pipe, installing a new pump station on Sparks Road and upgrading existing pump stations. Construction of the pipe will finish in July while work on the pump stations will continue until December.

Did you know?

The pipe will have the capacity to carry over 3 million litres of wastewater per day – this is roughly enough to flood AMI stadium knee deep twice over.

Mega-facility meeting fuels fire „„ By Sarla Donovan EMOTIONS ARE running high over the location of the new Hornby Library, Service Centre and South West Pool megafacility. A ‘drop-in’ style meeting at the Hornby rugby clubrooms last week, organised by city council staff, got heated with finger pointing and raised voices. HalswellHornby-RicHelen Broughton carton Community Board deputy chairwoman Helen Broughton said most of those who attended were members of sports clubs that used facilities at Denton Park. The park has been shortlisted as a site for the mega-facility, alongside Kyle and Warren parks. The meeting was one of three organised by city council staff to gauge public views on the location of the facility. “I found it helpful, but I have been told (city council) staff felt very uncomfortable with the level of anger,” Ms Broughton

said. “There were a couple of people who were particularly dominant at the meeting and there was noone in charge.” “Mike (Mora, community board chairman) said it was a

meeting organised by council staff and declined to take the chair. There ought to have been a chair.” Mr Mora said he had not been approached about chairing the meeting and wouldn’t have ac-

cepted if he had been. “We are the decision-makers at the end of the day . . . If there was a chair, it needs to be independent; a professional facilitator.” Ms Broughton said people who attended didn’t want to lose Denton Park to the mega-facility. “They felt the park was the heart of Hornby and taking it away would destroy that heart . . . they also feel they haven’t had sufficient information about the proposal.” She said residents were critical that there was no technical person on hand to answer questions, such as where the pool might be sited on Denton Park, or which playing fields would need to go. Hornby Cricket Club president Kevin Hornbrook said the city council hadn’t provided enough specific information. “There’s over 4000 people that use Denton Park for cricket, rugby, touch, softball, league, but the council can’t tell us where we’d relocate to.” He said he’d got “bugger all” out of the meeting. Community board member Debbie Mora, who has been outspoken about the Hornby mega-facilty, refused to comment on the meeting when contacted by Western News.

In Brief POLICE WARNING Papanui police are warning residents of Bryndwr to keep an eye out for anyone acting suspiciously after a spate of day time burglaries in the area. Sergeant Paul Piper said police would rather come and check out something that turned out to be innocent than have to deal with a burglary after the fact. CYCLIST HITS DOG Mountain bikers are urged to take care at the Halswell Quarry after a bike collided with a dog last weekend. The dog’s owner heard the cyclist flying downhill just before the dog was hit. The combination of little visibility, due to tree coverage, and speed were to blame for the accident. The cyclist is fine and, although the dog was significantly injured, he is recovering. NEED FUNDING? Applications have opened for the 2017 and 2018 round of the city council’s strengthening communities’ fund. The fund is open to any organisation working to boost community well-being. Last year, the city council distributed a total of $7.2 million through the fund.

Fixing the central city Merivale businessman Rob Mercer writes about the need to improve vehicle access to the central city Pre-quake, things were starting to rot and the city council didn’t know how to fix it. There were dirty red buses with nobody on them clogging up Colombo St and overzealous parking wardens pushing people away. The city council doesn’t understand the money merrygo-round. There needs to be people in town to spend money, to attract tourists in and create more jobs. It’s a simple fact that people on buses and bikes don’t spend money. The city shouldn’t be difficult to access, but the city council is making it very difficult to access. If you want to shop, you jump in your car and drive to where it’s convenient, like a suburban mall, and that’s because they have convenient parking. We’re not London or Auckland with their traffic problems,

REGENERATION: A focus on cycle lanes means the central city isn’t easy for cars to access, which is making it hard for businesses to thrive.

and Christchurch has the ability to have easy access for our cars, which we are traditionally used to having. The city council’s phobia of cars is difficult to understand in the age of the electric car. In a couple of years, electric cars will be all over us. I stood up in a post-quake recovery meeting in 2012 and

asked the question, to make the central city work, bearing in mind all the money was being spent in the suburbs, what percentage of that will go back into the city centre to make it work? We’re going to do things differently, they said. But they’ve missed an opportunity. Touchy subject of bike lanes on main roads – I drove down Colombo St north of the square and I felt like emigrating when I saw bike lanes on both sides of the street and all the parking gone. The narrowing of roads like Cambridge Tce is damaging businesses.

Tenants’ rights in focus „„ By Julia Evans HOUSING NEW Zealand tenants are looking to develop a charter of rights with the city council. A number of the concerned tenants expressed interest in working with the city council and the Fendalton-WaimairiHarewood Community Board after a meeting regarding the Government’s state housing sale-off in March. In November, Prime Minister and former Housing Minister Bill English said the Government would look to sell up to 2500 state houses in Bryndwr, Riccarton and Shirley as part of its sell-off programme. The Bryndwr Community Group has expressed concerns about what impact the sale will have on some of the most vulnerable members of the community – those who have no choice but to live in state housing. However, Marney Ainsworth, spokeswoman for the group said it was keen to work with the board and council to develop a master plan for the area. It came up in a conversation

regarding the rights of tenants, who feel like their opinions are being swept under the rug. “We hope to get city council support behind us,” she said. The city council said it is interested in working with the Bryndwr community so residents can have the determining voice on how the area grows and develops in the future.

and planning Bruce Rendall said the proposal for the charter is completely community driven. “Council’s social housing staff would be happy to meet with the community group to understand what they wish to achieve,” he said. Community board member Aaron Campbell said he would be happy to speak to the board on behalf of the residents.

Hat ready for royal garden party •From page 1 Said Ms Gillies: “I made it especially for the Harrogate exhibition, so when the wife of the chairman of North of England Horticultural Society council fell in love with it, saying it would look fabulous at the Buckingham Palace summer garden party to which she had been invited, how could I not leave it for her to wear?” Ms Gillies said. Ms Gillies was invited to exhibit at the Harrogate Spring Flower Show last month. She presented her Christchurch Connection exhibition, which included 15 stunning costumes, in the UK show – her first exhibition outside of Australasia. “I feel honoured being able to spread the word about our beautiful city and the rich culture visitors can expect to find when they visit us,” she said. Many visitors to the show went specifically to see Ms Gillies’ exhibition, which was all about promoting Christchurch. “Although there’s been some recent negative publicity about our garden city image, I am confident it’s a blip and we will be back even stronger than before.”

PASSION: Tenaisjah Tauapai (front far right) with her dance crew Reality at the regional hip hop competition in Christchurch. (Right) – Tenaisjah Tauapai and her dance crew Reality before performing at the New Zealand National Hip Hop Championships in Auckland. ​

Expression through hip hop „„ By Sarla Donovan BURNSIDE HIGH School year 10 student Tenaisjah Tauapai finds dance is a way to “put the hard times into personal expression.” She’s only been doing it for two and a half years but already Tenaisjah’s competing with the best in the country. At the end of April, she and her dance crew were at the New Zealand National Hip Hop Championships in Auckland, striving for a spot at the World Hip Hop Championships in the United States in August.

It was her second time at the nationals, which brought greater confidence. “The unity I felt with the crew was much stronger” said the 14-year-old. Being with hundreds of top dancers was “a bit nervewracking”, but also a learning experience as each crew brought different things to the table. Tenaisjah’s nine-person crew trains at Swarm Studio in Moorhouse Ave, normally clocking up around seven hours a week and more if preparing for a competition.

Her sister Grace also trains at the studio and their mother Rachelle Jackson is the crew manager. Mrs Jackson said she couldn’t be more proud of her daughter. “Her passion, hard work and consistency has got her to where she is today. Her growth in dance and within herself is incredible.” Tenaisjah’s keen to make hiphop her career. “For sure, I’m very passionate about it. I’d love to carry on my journey in dance for the rest of my life. It’s the way I connect with others. It’s my passion.”

Burnside, Ilam fire bug •From page 1 Said Mr Wallace: “Whoever it was must have used an accelerant because there was only one bag of rubbish in there, not enough to cause that much damage.” He had also heard of a for sale sign being set on fire, three other wheelie bins, a burnt car and the cover of a boat. “Four of the fires have been within 100m and there was

another 400m away. There will be more,” Mr Wallace said. Fire Service investigator Mark Thomas said there have been at least five in the area. “Any deliberately lit fire is treated as serious,” Mr Thomas said.

Car thrills Templeton youngster Jonty FIVE-YEAR-OLD Jonty Payne has congenital scoliosis. He finds it hard to play with his schoolmates from a wheelchair, and can’t run around, as he fast runs out of oxygen. But volunteer charity Gobabygo had the answer and specially adapted an electric ride-in car for the Templeton youngster. Garden City and Riccarton Rotary branches paid for the cost of the toy BMW, and supplied volunteers at the handover, at Christchurch BMW, in Manchester St. Gobabygo board member Bruce Jackson said it was one of

three cars handed over on the day. He said Jonty was “all over it, even doing figure eights around the sales area.” Mr Jackson thanked the Rotary members who turned out to help, including car builder and fitter John Harrington, who was ready and able to make on-site adjustments when the children needed it. He also thanked the staff of Christchurch BMW, who cleared a space in the showroom, and proved very helpful on the day. Gobabygo is a national charity,

adapting and donating these cars throughout New Zealand. Its CEO, Gilli Sinclair, said: Thanks to generous supporters and donors, and to the wonderful work Rotary is doing raising funds for us, we’ve been able to import another container of cars, ready to adapt. All we need now are the kids.” Mr Jackson said Rotary branches throughout the South Island are contacting child disability networks, and are encouraging anyone who knows a child aged 18 months to around seven years, who might benefit, to visit the charity’s website, gobabygo. org.nz.

City teens experience country life SEVEN CITY teenagers spent a week experiencing country life. The Hillmorton, Cashmere and Riccarton High School pupils took part in Farm Experience, a programme designed to give the pupils the chance to spend a week living with a farming family and learning about life on the land and food production. Cashmere year 10 pupil Bella Howe stayed at Margaret and Ross Manson’s beef finishing and sheep property south-west of Hororata for her week and spent her time vaccinating, drenching and tagging stock, helping out with shearing along with other day-to-day tasks. She said had not spent a lot of time on a farm before and had not expected so much practical work. “I really didn’t realise all of the things that needed to happen and all of the decisions that need to be made on-farm every day.” Bella said the programme had been a fantastic experience and had opened her eyes to the career possibilities in the agricultural sector. “It was so much fun and I’m so glad I did it.” After their week on the farm the pupils came together on the last day and were taken on a field trip to a range of mid-Canterbury agricultural companies. The programme was an initiative by the Rabobank’s client council.

SCHOOLS COUNTRY EXPERIENCE: The seven Farm Experience programme students (from left) – Emelia Cox, Danni Kennedy, Bella Howe, Kasey Hillary, Matthew Beuzenberg, Jessica Lee and Jack Goodgame spent a week learning about what is was like to live and work on a farm. ​

St Thomas look to keep up the pressure in first XI competition „„ By Andrew King THE CONNETICS schools premier first XI competition is moving into round three with a number of western schools looking to take points. All games will be played at the Christchurch Football Centre tomorrow. St Thomas is riding high into their game against Rangiora at 5.45pm. They recorded a 4-0 win over Christ’s last week. St Thomas coach Richard Washington said the team played great football and now they are aiming to continue the momentum. Last time the two met, the game ended in a 3-3 draw. Fourth-placed Riccarton will have their work cut out when they face second-placed Lincoln at 4pm. The game against Lincoln was one to forget for Riccarton last season with Lincoln pushing eight into the back of the net. Riccarton will be looking to continue the momentum after their 6-2 win over Rangiora last week. Burnside will try to topple table leader Cashmere when they meet at 5.45pm. Last time the two teams met they could not be separated with the game ending in a 2-2 draw at English Park. Burnside coach David Wil-

Undefeated CBHS aim for another win SOLID WIN: St Thomas will take a lot of positives from its 4-0 win over Christ’s last week into the game against Rangiora tomorrow.

liams said Cashmere will be a big match for them. “They have started the season with two wins and will be hard to beat,” he said. Burnside secured a 3-1 victory over St Bede’s in the second round of the competition on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Middleton is eye-

ing up its next challenge when they take on Papanui at 7.30pm. Last time the two met, Papanui won 2-1 at English Park. Papanui, fresh off their bye in the first round, managed to score a 2-1 win over Christchurch Boys’ High on Wednesday. Christchurch Boys’ High will head into round three with a bye.

„„ By Andrew King IT’S WILL be a battle between two of the four undefeated teams in the UC Championship when Christchurch Boys’ High take on Timaru Boys’ High at noon today. CBHS have been in blistering form in their first two hit outs of the season, scoring 98 points and conceding only 29. Timaru have also been in good form, including a 43-17 victory over Shirley last week. Meanwhile, St Thomas were handed their second loss of the season when they travelled to face Waimea Combined on Saturday going down 40-29.

The men from Middlepark Rd will travel across the city to take on St Bede’s who were defeated 41-19 by Christ’s. On Saturday, Burnside were defeated 74-7 by Nelson, who retained the Moascar Cup and kept their undefeated run going. Burnside had a first half to forget as they trotted into the sheds at the break after letting in eight tries, leaving them reeling at 50-0. Aidan Conrad-Hinga got Burnside on the scoreboard with a late try and Tom Fraser kicked the extras. Burnside now returns home to prepare for Waimea Combined.

Respite care available now If you’re planning a break and want your loved one to receive the best possible care while you’re away, or they need temporary care after surgery or poor health, we offer respite care. Relax knowing your loved one can enjoy the very best of respite care in one of our beautifully appointed serviced apartments. Did you know your stay can be subsidised with us? You will also have the peace of mind of knowing that if something unexpected happens, help is only ever moments away.

Sunlight can cause fires „„ By Mark Thomas, fire risk management officer A COUPLE of years ago I went to a house fire in the Heathcote Valley where low sunshine through a window had refracted from a small concave mirror sitting on a coffee table, setting fire to the adjacent couch and causing a lot of damage. If I remember rightly it occurred at about this time of year.  It seems that the lower trajectory of the sun is a factor.  What happened in Thurso Pl, North New Brighton, last Thursday was even

more bizarre. The occupant had been out and came home just before lunchtime to the distinct smell of smoke in the house. They quite wisely called 111. Wainoni and New Brighton crews attended.  They found a vacuum cleaner beside a small piece of scorched carpet.  It was evident sunlight was still refracting off, of all things, the slightly concave chrome wheel hub of the cleaner at a temperature hot enough to start the carpet burning.  If this had resulted in a full house fire I doubt the

very best fire investigators amongst us would have come up with this cause. And who would have believed them if they did? There are people still using portable gas heaters.  It’s understandable.  Once the gas bottle is full there’s instant heat for what seems a long time.  But these things release carbon monoxide and water vapour into the air you’re breathing and living in.  They’re also expensive.  Electrical heating appliances are far cleaner and in the case of heat pumps much cheaper.  Please change if you can.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Loving your independence? Could this be you? Sally was referred to an Occupational Therapist (OT) as she was struggling to hear on the phone and was losing contact with her family and friends, she was wanting any help that could be useful following challenges since her car accident. She has: Ankylosing spondylitis (which is an illness that stiffens up the joints), Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and is a little hard of hearing. Fracture in her upper back from a car accident in 2015 Sally lives in a two storied home on a hill in native bush with her husband. She loves her home and gardening. Due to a combination of Ankylosing spondylitis and the recent upperback fracture Sally has a forward flexed spine, requiring her to bend her knees to look up. The OT visited Sally in her own home and covered the following info on the first assessment: Energy conserving techniques Regular postural changes to self manage back discomfort Problem solving Sally’s kitchen set up to minimise bending and reaching

Problem solved better phone options and also where to buy a cordless amplified phone Adjusting her office set up to optimise function when using computer Having raised garden beds and garden pots on her deck, Changes in social life since accident and covered the five ways to Mental Wellbeing to maximise mental wellness. Sally feels very connected to her two storied home, which is surrounded by native bush, situated on a hill. The OT discussed the challenges and solutions to remain living in this home long term and provided insights into ways to manage this including the potential of living on one level, use of the community van and possible bathroom adaptations. Summary from Sally’s perspective: Sally reports that she was delighted with the services as: - the OT came to her house and at a time of day and day of week that suited Sally best. - there was no waiting for the service seen within the week of referral. - it was so affordable - $135 assessment and advice - she received good advice that

immediately changed her daily life (so much more than improving communication by phone) - she now has clear understanding of both the challenges and solutions that may lie ahead of her. - This resulted in less worry about the future - She was impressed that the discussion involved her love for nature (still be able to enjoy her garden) and that it was not limited to immediate need and safety She expressed that she feels more confident about staying in her much loved home. She is aware of how to access future input from the OT who now knows her well. The Centre for Senior wellbeing is an information hub for Senior Health.

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

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

Exercise

sharpens young adult brains Regular physical activity improves brain function even in young adults considered in their prime and at the height of cognitive ability, according to a University of Otago study.

A

body of research already exists showing aerobic exercise improves brain function in older adults, but there is a limited amount of literature on how it affects young adults. The Otago researchers, led by Department of Psychology Senior Lecturer Dr Liana Machado, set out to test the oft-held belief that the brains of young adults in their prime might not benefit as much as older people from regular sustained exercise. They took 52 tertiary students, aged between 18 to 30, and put them through a series of cognitive tests on a computer while measuring oxygen availability in

the frontal lobe of their brains, as well as their self-reported exercise frequency. Dr Machado says their “surprising” findings, just published online in the journal Psychophysiology, show that both blood supply to the brain and cognitive functioning appear to benefit from regular exercise in young adults. “This provides compelling evidence that regular exercise, at least five days per week, is a way to sharpen our cognitive ability as young adults – challenging the assumption that living a sedentary lifestyle leads to problems only later in life,” she says. The research also provides potential insight into understanding why people

who regularly engage in aerobic exercise tend to function better on a cognitive level. “I think the idea that young people do not have to worry about exercising since they are in their prime developmentally is rapidly being overturned by mounting evidence that even the brains of young adults can benefit from regular exercise,” she says. “The exercise could involve brisk walking or more vigorous activity, and could be made up of a few 10 minute bouts of exercise, rather than one single block of exercise,” she says. The researchers also found that body mass index was not a key factor in how

well the brain functioned, indicating that regular engagement in physical activity may be more important than body weight. Dr Machado says she had noticed over the years that university students appeared progressively less fit. “I wondered whether we might find significant relationships between exercise levels, oxygen availability in the brain, and cognition in the young adults, but no studies had considered this in healthy young adults.” These findings come at a time of increased scientific focus on links between exercise and cognitive health in older adults.

Avonside and Shirley

More than six years after earthquakes damaged their existing schools, Avonside Girls’ High School and Shirley Boys’ High School are looking forward to moving to a cutting-edge campus on QEII Park. The design for the new schools has only recently been released. Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume says being able to start from scratch has enabled the architects to come up with the ‘ultimate campus’. “It features better facilities than either of our schools has ever had in the past. We are very excited at the educational opportunities this will enable us to offer our students.” Shirley Boys’ High School Headmaster John Laurenson says the schools will continue to deliver quality single sex education. “Students will spend most of their day in a single sex environment – that is really important to us. Single sex

education benefits both boys and girls. Our students will also benefit, both educationally and socially, from being able to learn alongside and mix with students from the partner school. It is a fantastic opportunity.” Among the major facilities are a large Performing Arts Centre (with a 750-seat and a 100-seat theatre), three full-sized Gyms (complete with climbing wall), a Cultural Space and four Sportsfields. Each school will also have a long list of specialist learning facilities. Highlights include an Electronics Lab, Recording Studios, Editing Suites, a 2D and 3D Printing Room, six Science Labs and an Indoor Fitness Centre (complete with exercise equipment including rowing machines, stationery bikes and treadmills). The schools are due to open on their new sites in time for Term Two of 2019.

Two of the gyms on the campus will feature a climbing wall and be able to be linked for major events. The schools will also share a third gym

Making a difference to sick kids through the airwaves „„ By Sarla Donovan RADIO LOLLIPOP is on a mission to raise funds for a new studio. The charity broadcasts live into Christchurch Hospital and Ronald McDonald House four nights a week, providing comfort and entertainment to children having surgical, medical and acute treatment. Until now, they’ve operated out of a mobile van on a construction site by the old parkside hospital entrance. Live broadcasts are 6-8pm Monday to Thursday and volunteers visit children in the wards during the show, playing games, doing crafts and giving parents a break. Now, the Canterbury District Health Board has approved the design concept for a new studio to go inside the hospital.

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the right heat pump for your home

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit, most homes include at least one heat pump, if not a whole heating solution. They can provide cheap, clean heat and are much more convenient than a log burner as you just need to press a button. But how do you decide what is best? Choosing the right sized heat pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore important to get professional advice from heat pump experts. The range varies from wall mounted high walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems, ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted central heating systems allowing you to have a very discreet way of heating your whole home to a constant temperature throughout. Firstly, you must select a heat pump that is suitable for the size of the space you wish to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area taken into consideration but also, insulation, building orientation, windows and ceiling space. There are a wide range of heat pumps available with different heating outputs so it is important to select the correct size for your requirements that will handle the job but not be unnecessarily overpowered. Secondly, the location of your heat pump is also extremely important. The cheapest installation is a back to back where the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind the indoor unit however this is not necessarily always the best option. It is vital that the indoor unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is the location of the outdoor unit. Most people do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly in their outdoor entertaining area or right outside their bedroom window. Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands have come and gone over the years but there are a number of manufacturers who provide reputable and reliable products. All brands vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems and price, so it depends on your application as to which will be most suitable. Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands backed up by good technical after sales service. Ensure your heat pump is installed by an accredited installer. This will not only ensure correct installation of your heat pump, but also validate the manufacturers warranty. Other things to consider when choosing a heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi capabilities. Heating is a major investment in your home and it is vital to get the right advice. Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply, installation and servicing of all major brands of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as to which system will suit your application the best.

The facts about home ventilation Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure 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

ve Remo ells ng sm i k o o c am! e t s d an

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.

IT’S A KINDA MAGIC RETURNS

Special available lunch only. Monday - Saturday 12pm - 2.30pm

Family Friendly

Aer an overwhelming reception from New Zealand audiences in 2015, Showtime Australia and Peter Freestone are bringing their huge theatrical Rock concert Queen: It's a Kinda Magic back to NZ, appearing at the Horncastle Arena on ursday 1st June. Capturing the imagination of Queen fans both locally and internationally, Director Johnny Van Grinsven attributes the show's continued success to the attention-to-detail; everything from the costumes, instruments and even the lighting cues have been designed to replicate those seen in real Queen concerts. Making Queen: It's A Kinda Magic extraordinarily authentic is the involvement of Peter Freestone, Freddie Mercury's best friend, biographer, assistant and constant companion for the �nal 12 years of his life. As Production Consultant, Freestone has schooled the cast and producers on the characters and nuances of the original band in order to perfect the performance. “We're extremely lucky to have Peter involved. He knows Freddie and the boys so well; his knowledge about who they are and how they moved and played and even their sense of humour has really helped take this show to the next level,” says Johnny Van Grinsven. Another highly impressive member of the ensemble is principal musician Giles Taylor who steps on stage as Freddie Mercury, and does so as the only tribute performer in the world who sings and plays both piano and guitar live on stage. Though piano and vocals have been a mainstay in Taylor's repertoire since his childhood, he taught himself guitar speci�cally for the role of Mercury. Supporting Taylor for this mammoth stage production are Australians Richie Baker as Brian May on guitar and Kyle ompson as Roger Taylor on drums, as well as South Africa's Steven Dennett as John Deacon on bass.
