Second chance possible for cycle scheme „„ By Julia Evans THE CAMPAIGN to get more people cycling to Jellie Park Sport and Recreation Centre may get a second chance. The Fendalton-WaimairiHarewood Community Board was given a briefing by city council western area operations manager Martin McGregor at its meeting last Monday. Mr McGregor said the trial ran smoothly but had only a “small-tomoderate uptake” so it wouldn’t be continuing. But the board disputed that. It has requested the incentive be trialled again, but this time with a more significant incentive, such as free pool entry for cyclists. The board also said a longer trial was necessary, as well as a more robust promotion so people are more aware of it. Board chairman David Cartwright said: “One month is great, but you need to do it for a minimum of six.” The second trial round will hopefully begin in September and run for at least six months. •Turn to page 5

Students aim to build a better world „„ By Julia Evans STUDENTS FROM Hornby High School and Canterbury University will don their tool belts as part of a collaborative building programme. The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board approved a $5000 grant to go towards the Young Community Builders programme. It aims to link high school students who have ideas for building within the community with university students as mentors.

“This project will provide a process to bring those ideas to light by connecting high school students, university students and community organisations,” city council staff said. Hornby High principal Robin Sutton said he saw great merit in

the project. “I speak for all my colleagues in saying we’d be in for any future evolution of this,” he said. The programme is proposed to run for six weeks from September 11 and will involve a range of high schools.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK GOOD TO see the FendaltonWaimairi-Harewood Community Board has forced a rethink of the city council’s decision to abandon the cycle to Jellie Park scheme (see page 1). Last week we reported the incentivised scheme had been aborted and would not be implemented at other recreation centres aorund the city. Odd at a time when the city council is spending squillions on cycleways. So full marks to the community board for putting its foot down with the city council. The board has requested there be a more significant incentive, such as free pool entry for cyclists. The board also said a longer trial was necessary, as well as a more robust promotion so people are become more aware of it. The outcome will be known fairly soon. – Barry Clarke

Firebug returns to Ilam, Burnside „„ By Julia Evans POLICE FEAR for residents safety as arson attacks ramp up again after a lull in Burnside and Ilam. The police are investigating after six wheelie bins were set alight in the early hours of Saturday morning. Those working the case are urging the perpetrator to talk to police before anyone is seriously hurt, detective sergeant Michael Freeman said. Four bins were burnt on Westburn Tce, one on Chevron Pl and the last bin was set alight on Greers Rd. A garage on Chevron Pl was also damaged by fire. “Police are treating the incidents as arson and believe they are linked to previous wheelie bin fires in the area,” detective sergeant Freeman said. The previous four attacks happened in May but there had been a period of at least a month where there had been no fires. Greers Rd resident James Wallace, whose flaming bin scorched the side of his home while his children

were asleep in May, said it would eventually end in loss of life. “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 he was doing a letterbox drop telling people to keep their bins hidden. Residents in the area have also been told by police to keep their wheelie bins out of sight and off the road, even behind their house. Police are seeking reports of anyone acting suspiciously around Westburn Tce, Chevron Pl and Greers Rd between midnight and 1.30am on Saturday morning as well as any security footage. And if people have not yet reported an arson on or around their property, they should contact police immediately. Anyone with information should phone 363 7400 or to speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

In Brief FUNDING APPROVED Canterbury University student Tom Mackintosh has received $500 to go towards competing at the world under-23 rowing championships in Bulgaria. The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board approved the funding at its meeting last week. Mackintosh will be part of the men’s heavyweight team but has been involved in rowing for six years, winning medals at secondary school, national and international levels. BYLAW UPDATE The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board has received a report from city council staff regarding the anti-loitering bylaw at the Riccarton bus lounge. The board said the working party will consider the issue and release its own report, which is expected in late August.

Your Local Views Common sense over car parks prevails

Jillian Nuth – Our traffic is downright dangerous. It’s a great idea but with my experience as a pedestrian walking everywhere, there’s just no way I would cycle around this city.

Fendalton city councillor Jamie Gough writes about the common sense approach used by his community board On June 20, Western News reported on the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board’s decision to quash the removal of car parks outside the Holmwood Rd shops. The headline read – Businesses influence decision to keep car parks. That was fair, however, I’d suggest the headline could have read – Reality influences decision to keep car parks. The plan and staff recommendation was well-intentioned – Installation of a pedestrian island on Holmwood Rd and minor works resulting in the removal of six car parks from in front of the block of shops. Like any decision, there are pros and cons. In this instance my view, the

Readers respond to the article in the Western News last week regarding the city council’s decision to cut an incentive programme that encourages people to cycle to Jellie Park Recreation and Sport Centre

Anna Henderson – I didn’t know about this, would have done it. Maybe publicise more?

MEETING: (Left to right) – The Cook Shop owner Elizabeth Fry with David Cartwright, Jamie Gough and Gerry Brownlee. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN board’s view, and overwhelmingly the local community’s view, was that the cons would far outweigh any pros. Gerry Brownlee, as local MP, David Cartwright, as community board chairman and I met with the Holmwood Rd business operators who were horrified by the proposal. No one wants safety compromised, however, the “safety enhancement” was suggested to particularly assist road-crossing

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School students. This was somewhat baffling, given Rangi Ruru is on Rossall St – they cross at that street, which already has a pedestrian island. Further to this, the lifeblood of these local businesses is the convenient on-street parking, so affecting their viability for a solution to a non-existent problem seemed dubious at best. Parking is already atrocious here.

Discover this unique Emporium

I’d suggest if it went ahead you’d be creating an additional, yet irrelevant, crossing path to a block of vacant shops, as they would probably go out of business. The local community engaged with local democracy and the reality of the situation won the day. Sometimes major overhauls occur to ensure common sense prevails but sometimes it’s deciding to do nothing that proves to be the best decision.

Akio Asakura – Idealist idiots. People buy cars to be comfortable in their own space – music, heater etc. Oh, we should ride bicycles. No, people who want to use trains, buses and bicycles will. However, most people drive cars. Sarah Lashbrooke – I never knew about it either unfortunately. It sounds great. Bronwyn Hendry – Maybe the real question is – can people who might use the pool afford cycles? A bit of demographic research may be indicated here. • More letters, page 10

Scheme may get second chance •From page 1 One month did not measure a trend, Mr Cartwright said. “We don’t want a dot, we need a line across several months and then we can find out trends,” Mr Cartwright said. The initial trial in February meant if you cycled to Jellie Park five times, you received free pool entry and a bottle of water. There were 117 visits by cyclists in the month, which was deemed a success by Mr Cartwright as well as board member and chairwoman of the Jellie Park Bike Initiative Project committee Bridget Williams. It was intended the scheme would be rolled out across all city council sport and recreation centres, such as Pioneer and Graham Condon. “We need to think about how we publicise it like notices in the car park and where you lock your bike up that says thank you for cycling, have you heard about our new incentive,” Mr Cartwright said. Ms Williams said it would just take more time for the public profile to build. “I don’t see any harm in it continuing, people just need a wee bit of a carrot . . . good things take time,” Ms

Williams said. The second trial PEDAL: The Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board will have to be approved by the member Bridget Williams wants to see more bicycles in these city council before it goes ahead stands. ​ in September.

Council land may become pistol club „„ By Julia Evans AN EMPTY piece of land in Templeton could become space for a pistol, archery or paintball club. Or it could be turned into another quarry for the area. At last week’s meeting, the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board reviewed surplus city council-owned property in its area. This included the 40469m sq Templeton reserve. It was previously leased out for grazing. However, city council staff said there was “some doubt from a practical perspective” as to why it was still being held. “It seems to be a bit of a legacy property.” Staff recommended the board consider it for a number of clubs in the area looking for a location, such as pistol, archery or paintball clubs. Staff also said: “There is interest from an adjoining land owner for quarrying purposes.” The board resolved to have a workshop to commence consideration of the property review process in the wards.

Technology trust in pipeline A TRUST is being developed to get technology to children that couldn’t otherwise afford it in Hornby. The access to technology as a learning, creative and sharing tool is now critical to children as they progress through their formative education years, The Hub Hornby centre manager Jason Marsden (right) said. Most children have access in their homes, classrooms or on their person. But for some that isn’t the case. “Especially amongst Maori and Pasifika communities, which are over-represented in the tail of underachievement,” Mr Marsden said. Current “trustees-in-waiting” include former Mayor Garry Moore, Janine Morrell-Gunn from Whitebait Media, development director for the Centre of Contemporary Art Rose Crossland and Mr Marsden.

The group is now working towards setting up the Uru Manuka Education Trust to continue the work of the Manaiakalani Outreach Programme, which is based in Auckland. The Manaiakalani programme bridges the digital divide and sustain accelerated student achievement across the cluster. The Uru Manuka cluster is made up of Gilberthorpe Primary School, South Hornby School, Hornby Primary School, Sockburn School, St Bernadette’s School, Yaldhurst Model School and Hornby High School. The trust will work closely with Hornby High School principal Robin Sutton and Hornby Primary School principal Gary Roberts. The first task is to formally set the trust up, which is being worked on by Megan McKay from the Hornby Malley & Co lawyers.

News TALENT: Run77 is made up of George Murray, keyboard; Henry Phelps, bass guitar; Angus Mossman, guitar and vocals; Angus Murray, drums; Robbie Rolleston, guitar.

Rockquest winners „„ By Julia Evans RUN77 – a band made up of five aspiring musical talents from Christ’s College – won the Canterbury regional final of Smokefree Rockquest. The band is made up of two brothers – George and Angus Murray, Angus Mossman, Henry Phelps and Robbie Rolleston. “We went mental,” said guitarist and lead singer, year 12 student Angus Mossman. In spite of, according to Angus, some “questionable dance moves and fist pumps”, their many hours of practice paid off.

The band practiced tirelessly in the lead up to the regional final. They were at school at 7am every day to rehearse, focusing on musicianship as well as stage presence. The national finals are on September 2 but the more than 30 regional finalists will be culled to eight after bands submit 12 minutes of original footage of video to the judges. The eight finalists will be announced at the end of July. Rock band tutor Nolan Hungerford said doing well in a band doesn’t happen by accident. “Before the boys video

their original songs on Thursday, they will have put in 30 or 40 hours work,” Mr Hungerford said. The boys are currently juggling practice with internal assessment and two were also in the school production – Singin’ in the Rain. “If you want good results, you have to put in the proper work. Being in a band is learning about everything from how to plug in your guitar, how to hold an audience, how to do a gig, as well as all the ins and outs of the music world,” Mr Hungerford said.

School play pours with acting talent

Singin’ in the Rain was made famous by Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds – but last week the 1952 film was given a new lease of life on stage. St Margaret’s College and Christ’s College students – including (above) Annalida Jaeger, Mandy Manson, Sophie McLean Tom Vincent, Grace Mitchell, and (left) Nina Hogg and Hugo Beale – teamed up to take on the classic. A dedicated company of more than 100 students joined forces to bring energy and vitality to the stage.

Tegan Osborne – The amount of times myself or my partner has nearly been hit because drivers aren’t looking where they’re pulling out with those cycle lanes down St Asaph St is crazy! It’s just too dangerous because drivers and pedestrians aren’t looking for cyclists. I feel safer on a road without cycle lanes. But people just need to watch where they’re going the lanes are a good thing because it makes thigs somewhat easy, it’s just the idiots who need glasses.. Gavin Simon – Its winter. Not a good time to cycle unless you are especially dedicated. Wait for summer for the cycle usage numbers to increase. Kylie Mills – I bike... but its damn cold I understand why it’s not used a lot yet... Readers respond to the news the anti-loitering bylaw could breach the Bill of Rights Daniel Thompson – That idea of turning off the wifi should be a given. When I was a loitering teen (before wifi) those I hung out with and I were quick to move around out of sheer boredom. We used to buy one cup from The Palms Subway and stay for hours refilling the same cup over and over and chatting at

the food court. If they took the cup away, because we were teens and had little in the way of common sense, it would have lost its fun. Remove the free wifi and these kids will get bored and go next door to the mall where security might nab them (which is probably the reason why they’re in the exchange, I dunno). Bronwyn Dobier – This is typical of our country lately. Why do the scumbags have all the rights and Joe Public gets screwed over! People need to grow a pair and deal with issues and make New Zealand safe again! Kevin Kiwibird – What about the rights of people to quiet enjoyment of the bus lounge or to walk the streets around it without fear or intimidation? Don’t let anywhere be held hostage by these slithering idiots. Paul Cull – I don’t get why the Bill of Rights act would apply at the bus lounge. Surely it is a waiting area available to legitimate users of the bus service, and as such neither an area for the “movement of people” nor a “public place”? Just like they have no legal right to hang out being obnoxious brats in my living room, wouldn’t the same principal of not being an open public space apply to the bus lounge?

John Lear – It’s those begging thieves around the area pretending they don’t have a life, they are the ones that slowly sabotaged the streets parks... greedy bus exchange, instead of wasting money, why don’t you help these people get back on their feet instead of moaning about yourselves. Margaret Gamblin – What about the rights of the public to use it without feeling intimidated by these punks?

Great wig day

CRAZY HAIR: Rooms 25 and 20 had fun for a good cause on Wig Wednesday.

PUPILS FROM Cotswold School donned their wigs to raise money for a very worthy cause. The school raised $632.40 during the recent Wig Wednesday to raise money for the Child Cancer Foundation, which provides personalised support for children diagnosed with cancer and their families. Every week, more than three children in New Zealand are diagnosed with cancer. The Child Cancer Foundation receives no direct funding from the Government, so relies on the generosity of the public and events like Wig Wednesday.

CBHS dominate under-18 Crusaders development side „„ By Andrew King A HUGE portion of the players selected in the Crusaders under-18 development squad have been picked from Christchurch Boys’ High. A 55-man team was named on Wednesday with 21 of them coming from CBHS, St Andrew’s and St Bede’s colleges. Eight Canterbury-based players were also selected in the wider training squad. CBHS have 15 players in the squad, as well as another two in the wider training side, including last minute hero Alex Harford. Harford has come off the bench in the last two UC Championship games for CBHS and kicked the winning points late in the game. St Andrew’s will host the players in a training camp from Sunday to Wednesday before a squad of 25 is selected to travel to Wellington to play the under-18 Hurricanes. The match will be a curtain-raiser for the Hurricanes v Crusaders on July 15. St Andrew’s have five students in the squad and two in the wider group. Reuben Cotter was the only St Bede’s player picked.

Villa and Middleton students make cross-country team

REWARD: Villa Maria College student Navajo Prentice will compete for New Zealand in cross-country in August.

„„ By Andrew King VILLA MARIA student Navajo Prentice and Middleton Grange student Sofia Kennedy have been named in the New Zealand secondary schools cross-country team. They will travel with the 12-strong team to Hobart from August 12-14 to compete in the Australian schools cross-country championships. Prentice won her grades at the Christchurch secondary schools road race and Christchurch crosscountry championships both held in May and said it was her goal to make the national squad. “I am looking forward to wearing the New Zealand singlet and getting to know the other athletes in the team,” she said. Prentice has been coached by Mike Riley for the past three years. Leading up to her recent races, she had been training most days of the week along with competing for North Canterbury in the Saturday club cross-country races. School sports director Jacqui Restieaux said it was great to see her hard work recognised. “She has represented the school over the last five years and just quietly works away in the background. She is committed and determined but also very humble,” she said.

EXCITED: In spite of focusing more on basketball than distance running, Middleton Grange student Sofia Kennedy has been selected in the team.

Kennedy said she has been focusing on basketball for the past three years rather than distance running. She was named in the under-18 national basketball squad as a non-travelling reserve for the FIBA under-17 Oceania Championships from July 9-15 in Guam. “My initial reaction to [the cross-country] selection was

surprise, but I am extremely thankful for the opportunity,” she said. Kennedy said she is excited to see how she will compare with Australian competitors. “Representing New Zealand has always been a dream of mine, and I am excited about the opportunity and consider it an honour,’ she said.

‘NTA’ a hidden gem at McLeans Island At McLeans Island, you will find an educational institute providing land based courses, supported by commercial enterprises offering its students work experience. The public can also experience visitor attractions including horse trekking and a farm park.

Agriculture

Animal Care

People interested in farming can study a New Zealand Certificate in Agriculture. The academy’s agricultural courses cover the dairy industry where job availability is high, sheep, beef and arable farming.

A Certificate in Animal Care, level 3 is the first step towards a qualification and employment in the animal care industry. This certificate is ideal for people wishing to continue with further study in vet nursing or who want to work in a kennel, cattery or pet shop.

Students learn about: livestock handling, feeding, welfare and reproduction; safe work practices; land sustainability and soil management; weed control and pest identification; pasture management; farm fencing, farm technology, vehicles and machinery; and more.

NTA also offers the New Zealand Certificate in Animal Technology, ‘Rural Animal Technician’ strand at level 5, for graduates aiming to work as Rural Animal Technicians for rural veterinarian practices.

Students learn about all domestic and rural animals, utilising the Arion Farm Park to complete practical components of the course, where they take responsibility for the day-to-day care of the farm park’s animals.

The practical skills required for working in agriculture are emphasised with considerable hands-on time spent, on the Academy’s training farm and commercial farms. The National Trade Academy has numerous contacts in the industry with their own recruitment consultant responsible for work placement opportunities.

Arion Farm Education Park The Arion Farm Park is open to visitors where you can see, touch and feed a variety of farm animals, and also hosts children’s parties and pony rides. The park is open 7 days, 10am-3pm, www.arionfarmpark.co.nz

Guam champs for students „„ By Andrew King MIDDLETON Grange students Amiee Book and Lauryn Hippolite and Burnside High’s Tsubasa Nisbet have been selected in the under-18 national women’s basketball team. They will travel to Guam for the FIBA under-17 Oceania Championships which starts on Sunday and goes through to Saturday. Book, daughter of former New Zealand basketballer Ed Book, who was part of the 2006 Commonwealth Games team that placed second, said it was a real buzz to play for her country. “It’s a real honour to be able to pull on the silver fern and play a sport that I love,” she said. Book said it would be great to test her skills against some of the best in the world. Fellow student Hippolite said she was pleased to get the nod after a gruelling selection process. “A lot of good players missed out, so I feel really fortunate to

have the opportunity to represent my country,” she said. Hippolite said they will be hoping to qualify for the 2019 world champs, so they will be giving it their all. Middleton head of sports Tim Bennetts saud the school has benefited for a number of years of past students coming back to help out with the basketball programme. “We have produced 18 players from Middleton who have either played professionally or received scholarships to United States’ colleges and we are fortunate to benefit from the expertise from several former pupils who give their time generously to the coaching and management of our teams,” he said. Nisbet said it was a goal to wear the national colours ever since she started playing. “This will be a great chance to see how we compare with the other countries in Oceania, especially Australia. I am thankful for the opportunity and for my

Burnside and Canterbury Wildcats coach Lori Ives McDaniel said Nisbet’s hard work has really paid off. “She will be a great addition to the New Zealand under-18 team, not just for her on-court skills, but also for her maturity and leadership skills,” she said. BLOCK: Amiee Book shows her defensive skills for Middleton. She will look to bring the same intensity for the national team.

Chance to regroup after further loss for Burnside „„ By Andrew King ST THOMAS’ and Burnside High will regroup and look ahead to their upcoming games in the UC Championship after suffering losses at the weekend. St Thomas’ were beaten at home 19-15 by Rangiora in a

tight tussle, while Burnside travelled north and were beaten 35-12 by Marlborough Boys’ on Saturday. Burnside are yet to win a game in the competition this year, leaving them bottom of the table. St Thomas’ are sitting in ninth position.

Looking ahead, Burnside have to try to get a win against St Andrew’s College this Saturday. St Thomas’ will want to get their season back on track when they play Shirley Boys’, in Shirley. Christchurch Boys’ High will come back fresh from the bye and look to regain their top-of-

the-table status when they play Rangiora. CBHS dropped to second after Timaru Boys’ ran in 14 tries in a 90-0 demolition of Roncalli Combined on Saturday. Points: Timaru, 40pts, 1; CBHS, 39pts, 2; Christ’s, 39pts, 3; Nelson,

„„ By Andrew King BURNSIDE HIGH will defend the Connetics Shield tomorrow night after winning it for the first time last week. Cold conditions could not dampen the spirits of the team dubbed the ‘beasts’ as they celebrated their 3-1 win over Lincoln High at the Christchurch Football Centre, where all league games are played this year. Coach David Williams said the game was played in great spirit. “The boys were very happy to end up with their hands on the shield at the full-time whistle,” he said. It is the third time the shield, considered the Ranfurly Shield of high school football, has changed hands this season. In an ironic twist, Middleton, which held it at the start of the season, will have a chance to get it back when they play Burnside at 5.45pm tomorrow. Meanwhile, St Thomas have been confirmed in the nationals tournament in Napier in September. They, along with Lincoln High, Cashmere High and St Andrew’s College, will compete against the top 32

teams for the title. St Thomas will be on a high when they run out against Shirley Boys’ High at 4pm tomorrow. Coach Richard Washington said it was a great effort and a fitting way to send off the year 13 boys who will not be playing next year. “Credit goes to the boys for sticking to processes. So far they have executed game plans 99 per cent of the time and really have formed a tight team, it’s a family feel and we all look after each other,” Washington said. He said they will need to

step up to finish the season off and look towards the tournament after that.

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. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no obligation quote and will come to your home to see what is required. Visit our website at www.enviromaster.co.nz.

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 mells om s o r h t ba m! a e t s and

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.

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

relaxed manner. My motto is ‘There are no strangers, only friends waiting to meet.’ We gather together for breakfast at 8.30am which sets us up for the day and everybody thinks is a very civilised hour. I organise incredible trips at incredible prices. Look around, you can’t find better for all we include. For more information, phone 03 379 3799 or 03 312 7050 or email her on sunshineone@xtra.co.nz

Supporting your bowel and digestive Osteoporosis is a serious condition ...but research shows it can be reversed! function helps prevent disease It is most important to keep the whole digestive and elimination systems of the body working efficiently. Otherwise toxins that have not been eliminated set the stage for disease. Many diseases have been linked with micro-organisms (virus) or a bacterial component. Generally these microorganisms or bacteria can only survive due to the fact that the environment they are in is suitable for their survival. Non eliminated toxins are probably one of the main causative factors for their survival. We know that when the digestive system and bowel function are poor we have many more health problems. These include arthritis, digestive problems like reflux and stomach pain, bladder infections, chronic skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rashes, poor eyesight, pain and inflammation, tumors and a weakened immune system just to name a few. Nature’s Sunshine LBS II contains a highly effective blend of natural herbs to support the whole digestive system and it is especially effective at cleansing the lower bowel and intestinal tract. It is commonly used for arthritis, constipation, diarrhea, digestive problems, dry stool, fever, colds and influenza, flatulence, gallstones, gout, skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, urinary infections, liver dysfunction, Candida, weakened immune function and for people who want to keep their health as good as possible. The herbs in LBS II help stimulate the production of digestive fluids and bile

for efficient digestion. This alone may help prevent many diseases as a properly working digestive system will itself neutralise many disease causing organisms before they have a chance to cause any problems. LBS II also stimulates peristaltic action of the colon effectively cleansing the colon of any accumulated build-ups of waste material. It also relaxes abdominal cramping and spasms, enhances liver function, purifies the blood, neutralizes acidic conditions, helps destroy intestinal parasites and worms, and fights infection. Keeping your digestive system and bowels functioning efficiently is definitely an important step in obtaining and maintaining good long term health. LBS II and further information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

Osteoporosis is not taken as a serious condition by most people! Most people don’t realise they have osteoporosis until a fracture happens, as there are usually no signs or symptoms. Fractures can commonly be debilitating with chronic pain and can lead to early mortality. Fractures kill more women than all gynaecological cancers put together and one in six women taken to hospital with a hip fracture, will not come out alive and men fare even worse. Around one in three women and one in twelve men are affected with osteoporosis. The most common osteoporotic fractures are of the wrist, spine, shoulder and hip. Vertebral collapse is a compression fracture and causes back pain often with shooting pains due to compression of the nerves. Multiple vertebral fractures lead to a stooped posture, loss of height and chronic pain with reduced mobility. Hip fractures, in particular, usually require prompt surgery, as there is a serious risk associated with it of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism leading to increased mortality. Osteoporosis literally means “bones with holes”. It occurs when bones lose minerals such as calcium more quickly than the body can replace them. Although calcium is essential for bone health other minerals like magnesium, zinc and trace minerals like silica, boron, manganese, copper are essential also. Vitamin’s D3 and K2 have been shown to be essential in a bone support program. A less well known mineral strontium,

that is naturally found in your bones has been researched and found in four landmark studies to actually reverse bone loss when sufficient other nutrients are present. One study of 1,649 postmenopausal women with osteoporosis who had had at least one fracture were divided into two groups. Both groups took vitamin D and calcium supplements. One group were also given 680mg/day of strontium. After the three year study the strontium group showed an unheard of average bone growth of 8.1%. This study shows that osteoporosis can not only be halted but may even be reversed and without the side effects of common osteoporosis drugs. Further information on how to support your bone density and overall health is available from the natural health specialists at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

BREAKTHROUGH AGAINST OSTEOPOROSIS Osteoporosis, the weakening of the bone is a serious health threat that often leads to severe pain, fractures & early mortality. Research has found the bones can be re-mineralised & strengthened when the required nutrients are present. Minerals calcium, magnesium & vitamins D3 & K2 are essential but are not enough in many cases. A missing link appears to be the mineral strontium. Research shows strontium to positively affect bone density. - Supports strong healthy bones, teeth & nails - Is a naturally occurring mineral often lacking in the modern diet - Found in healthy bones & teeth but lacking in people with osteoporosis

Trees and Power Lines

The responsibilities of tree owners and Orion under the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 Orion New Zealand owns and operates the electricity distribution network in central Canterbury between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers and from the Canterbury coast to Arthur’s Pass. Trees touching power lines account for 10-20% of all unplanned power outages on our network. If you see a tree touching a power line, or any other hazardous tree condition, please contact us immediately on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

Orion’s tree management programme

This advertisement provides a general notice of the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003 and the dangers of trees near power lines. More detail on these issues can be found on our website www.oriongroup.co.nz or by phoning us on 03 363 9898.

We currently undertake periodic cutting or trimming of vegetation within the notice zone. The intent of this cutting or trimming is to support safety and reduce the risk of power outages. This periodic cutting or trimming by us does not remove the tree owner’s responsibilities and in the case of fast growing species may not be sufficient to ensure that trees remain outside of the growth limit zone. You will be notified prior to any periodic trimming being carried out and the work will be completed by arborists carrying Orion identification.

The Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003

The regulations set out the responsibilities of electricity line companies and tree owners. The purpose of the regulations is to protect the safety of the public and help to ensure a secure supply of electricity. The regulations: • define safe separation distances between trees and power lines • specifies who is responsible for ensuring clearances are maintained • places potential liability on the tree owner if any damage or accident occurs due to trees touching power lines. (Note that the word “trees” includes all types of vegetation, including shrubs, hedges and climbing vines.)

What are the dangers?

Trees near power lines need to be trimmed or removed for the following reasons: • children like to climb trees and when trees are close to power lines there is a risk of serious injury or death • in severe weather conditions, vegetation can become electrically “live” and may electrocute anyone or anything that touches it • while a tree may not touch a power line in fine weather, branches can bend or break in wind or snow storms, causing serious damage and possibly prolonged power outages • in dry conditions, electrical sparking caused by branches or windblown debris on lines may cause fires.

Orion’s tree management programme is largely governed by the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003. Our programme involves education, monitoring and the cut/trim or removal of trees that threaten to come into contact with power lines. Through this programme we work with tree owners to minimise the risk of their trees touching power lines.

If Orion becomes aware of a tree which is within the ‘Notice zone’ (see Tree “A” in the diagram below) then we are required to issue the tree owner with a Hazard Warning notice. For trees within the ‘Growth limit zone’ (see Tree “B” in the diagram below) we are required to issue the tree owner with a Cut or Trim notice.

What is a hazard warning notice?

If a tree is within the “Notice zone” (see Tree “A” in the diagram), we are required to issue a hazard warning notice to the tree owner.

Notice zone

Minimum distances required between trees and power lines

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees and power lines, defined in the regulations, are outlined in the diagram to the right. A common sense approach, by tree owners trimming trees early, will generally prevent trees touching power lines.

Growth limit zone

Tree “A”

To maintain a safe distance from power lines some trees require cutting or trimming more frequently than other trees, but if it is determined that cutting or trimming cannot satisfactorily meet the requirement then removing the tree is recommended. Other situations may require trees to be felled because they are at a distance that is considered to be a hazard due to falling during storms or being diseased.

Tree “B”

0.5 metres

Note:

V = Volts; kV = kilo Volts ie 1,000 Volts

1) These distances are from the power line, not the power pole 2) These distances are a minimum and apply in all conditions including high wind or snow 3) In most instances the power lines that go to a house or building are low voltage power lines. Power lines that go down a street may be low or high voltage.

A hazard warning notice alerts the tree owner that the tree has encroached the notice zone and that if it encroaches the “Growth limit zone” (see Tree “B” in the diagram) a cut or trim notice may be immediately given to the tree owner (see above).

Trimming trees near power lines

Trimming trees near power lines can be extremely hazardous and the dangers should not be underestimated. Contact with a power line can cause: • • • • • •

injury or death to yourself, family or passers by injury or death to livestock damage to property and other trees damage to electrical appliances damage to power supply facilities damage to third parties.

We recognise that the public is not always experienced in tree trimming, so we are happy to advise you on this. We can arrange for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your cost. If, however, you prefer to arrange your own tree trimming, we recommend you hire professionals with the necessary expertise and safety procedures to competently carry out this work. If you or someone working for you intends to work within 4 metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from Orion before you start. As a tree owner you may be liable for any damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

The growth limit zone is the area around a power line which trees must not encroach even in windy or snow conditions. The notice zone is a distance one metre beyond the growth limit zone.

What is a cut or trim notice?

If we become aware that a tree has encroached on the “Growth limit zone”, we will give notice in writing to the tree owner that the tree must be cut or timed to maintain the distances prescribed in the regulations, and the timeframes for action. If no action is taken Orion may then trim the tree and seek to recover costs.

Who pays for the cut or trim?

Orion is responsible for the first cut of trees near power lines, where the first cut is on a property basis, not owner basis. We have already met this obligation by completing a first cut of vegetation on all our lines. The tree owner will need to organise and pay for any subsequent and future cuts or trims. We are happy to provide tree owners with a list of approved arborists who can carry out this work, and also advise the best solution given the circumstances.

What fines can be imposed?

A tree owner commits an offence where a cut or trim notice is given, and without reasonable excuse, the tree owner fails to have the tree cut or trimmed and/or fails to advise us of the time and location of the cut or trim. A person who commits such an offence is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues, that person is also liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every day or part day during which the offence continues.

Contact us if in any doubt about your tree

We aim to work with tree owners to ensure safety is maintained and power outages are minimised. We will actively work with tree owners to see trees are trimmed or cut before regulatory powers are applied. However, as we wish to ensure the safety and security of the public, we will use the regulations where necessary.
