Lack of aquatic facility a barrier for wider Linwood

Pet Pippi part of parade fun „„ By Bridget Rutherford PIPPI IS part of the family. So when the Bromley sisters headed to the America’s Cup victory parade last week, they weren’t going to leave her behind. Jade Bromley tucked Pippi into her puffer jacket to keep her warm, and headed to the central city from their Huntsbury home with sisters Ashley and Holly. They, along with about 6000 people braved the freezing rain, wind and sleet on Wednesday to celebrate Emirates Team New Zealand’s America’s Cup triumph in Bermuda. The 18-year-old said in spite of the cold, Pippi didn’t seem to mind being there. She said their parents were huge sailing fans, and had encouraged them to head along to catch a glimpse of the team and the Auld Mug.

„„ By Bridget Rutherford HAVING NO local swimming pool is the biggest barrier for those living in the wider Linwood area, a new survey has found. The Linwood Development Aspirations: Our Social and Recreational Hopes survey interviewed 499 people living and working within a 1.5km radius of the centre of Linwood Park. The findings, released last week, showed overwhelming support for a pool to be built in the area. The city council has allocated about $20 million to build a pool over the next three years. But it has not yet been determined how big it would be, or where. The survey, carried out last year, asked what people currently did for fun, what activities they would like to be doing, the barriers stopping that, and what would make it possible. In total, 103 people said they would like to take swimming lessons. But about half of those said they could not because there was no aquatic facility in the area. •Turn to page 5

Tuesday July 18 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

IF YOU are a city councillor or community board member in the Linwood area, read page 1. Because the good people of Linwood are beating the drums very loudly for a swimming pool. We reveal today having no local swimming pool is the biggest barrier for those living in the wider Linwood area. The Linwood Development Aspirations: Our Social and Recreational Hopes survey interviewed 499 people living and working within a 1.5km radius of the centre of Linwood Park. About $20 million has been allocated to a pool over the next three years. Whether that happens remains to be seen. Linwood desperately needs community facilities and a pool is a perfect start. The local body elections are still a way off, but the pool issue will be a hot election topic when they come around. - Barry Clarke

Wheelchair users will get to use beach mat „„ By Caitlin Miles GETTING A wheelchair across the soft sand at the beach is about to get easier thanks to a special mat. Come the summer season the North New Brighton Residents’ Association and North Beach Surf Club will roll out a special wheelchair mat as a trial. It’s designed to make it easier for those in wheelchairs and with other mobility disabilities to get from the concrete across the soft sand and onto the hard sand near the water. Association chairman Josiah Thompson said it was “very exciting” to be able to provide the mat so the less able would not miss out on enjoying the beach. The mat will be stored at the surf club, every morning it will be rolled out and brought back in at the end of the day by the surf club. Mr Thompson said he hopes following the trial they will be able to keep it permanently but will need to wait and see. ​

Our People

Richard Jolly

Former oil trader finds reward Teacher Richard Jolly is head of social science at Linwood College but in his former life, he was a London-based oil trader who travelled the world. Sarla Donovan talks to him about what a trader does and why he moved to Christchurch

Oil trader to social studies teacher – why the change? To do something worthwhile and bring up a family in Christchurch. I taught in Camp America for a year before oil trading and loved it. I wanted to go back to it; teaching students is very rewarding – and there’s not many oil trading jobs here. It sounds exotic. It is exotic. I travelled to many countries – the United States lots of times, Egypt and Russia and the Baltic States. I was based in London, but did a lot of work in Hamburg and Zug in Switzerland. It’s a great life, but if you have small children you never see them. I spent hours and hours oil trading

and realised one day, sitting at my desk that I was paying a nanny to take my daughter to the beach. That’s really when I decided to make the change. That was 14 years ago. We moved from Switzerland to New Zealand and I trained at the New Zealand Graduate School of Education. My wife Beth is from Methven but it wasn’t all her choice, she certainly wasn’t putting the pressure on to come back. What do oil traders need to be good at, what’s involved? You need to be good with people, good with numbers and good at making decisions. I’d make contacts in different countries, buy large quantities of oil, organise shipping, ship it halfway across the world, hedge the price using the futures market, talk to refineries to process it. So, you have to work with a lot of different people. Are there any similarities between the two jobs? Not a lot – the lunches are quite different! You’re still working with people though, that’s the same. So were you here during the

earthquakes? Yes . . . but I wish I wasn’t. How did they affect you? Not good. We lost our house in the February 2011 earthquake and like many, it took six years to get it replaced. Meanwhile, we moved 13 times, including one year back in the UK.

I was offered a job back in oil trading when we went back but chose to stay in teaching and worked in a very posh English public school, Dauntsey’s. So Linwood’s not the only school you’ve taught at? No, prior to the earthquake I worked at Catholic Cathedral College, which I very much enjoyed, and only left because my house was destroyed. I commuted in from Methven for a few months but then got a job at Mt Hutt

College followed by a spell back at Dauntsey’s. Did you grow up in the countryside back in the UK? I grew up in a town called Beaconsfield, just outside of London, and it was great but the town has now been swallowed by London commuters and is not really very nice now. Are your family still back in the UK? Yes, people are still around. My parents have lived in the same place for 52 years and I try to get back every year or 18 months. I also have four brothers over in that part of the world.

PEOPLE: Teaching and oil trading are both peoplefocused jobs, says Richard Jolly. PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

in teaching

Did you attend a co-ed school like Linwood? No, I went to a boys grammar school; we were academics and rugby. The teachers wore gowns and it was very formal. The school was good for me, it got me into Cambridge University where I studied engineering. It was amazing – I was there for three years – we had our bicycles, played sport, rugby and hockey. And from there I won a scholarship to do my masters in the US, then became an oil trader. Your three kids must keep you pretty busy these days. Do you find time for

No pool a barrier for Linwood

•From page 1 Thirty-three others said there were not enough community facilities and spaces for social and recreational activities. City councillor Yani Johanson said the survey results were a good reminder for why the area needed a pool. “There’s been a really strong desire and need for a pool and recreation centre for a long time.” Of the 81 children interviewed, 28 said they wanted a swimming pool. Eighty-nine 13 to 25-year-olds were interviewed. Nineteen said they wanted to be able to go swimming, but many said there were

no facilities close by, and it was too far to travel to one. Twenty-seven said they wanted a pool. Of the 210 26 to 64-year-olds interviewed, 45 wanted to be able to go swimming for leisure, but 28 said there were no facilities nearby. Seventy-two wanted a pool. One-hundred-and-nineteen people over the age of 65 took part in the survey, with 18 saying swimming or aqua exercise was something they wanted to be able to do. However, 12 said having no local pool stopped them from doing that, and 30 wanted some sort of aquatic facility.

ACHIEVER: Bao Tran is Barrington Kip McGrath’s Star of the Month. His tutors said he has made tremendous academic progress during his time at Kip McGrath. His tutor said this is strongly reflected in the fact that Bao is so focused in class and completes his homework to a very high standard. He is such a pleasure to tutor.

sports or hobbies? I sometimes think I run a taxi service; football, ballet, gymnastics. Weekends involve cheering my kids on in their sports and trying to get out myself for a hit of tennis or a round of golf. I think it’s important that we find time to balance our lives, it makes you a better parent and a better teacher. Where are you off to in the school holidays? We’re heading over to Australia for a family holiday. Very much looking forward to it.

News Halswell shelter recaptures past THE STORY of a women’s refuge has been captured in a Halswell shelter. Canterbury’s heritage has been reflected in a remembrance structure that recalls and tells the story of Mount Magdala, an 1880s women’s refuge and its historical farm buildings. Titled A Place to Shelter, the new structure in McMahon Reserve outlines the history of the area and incorporates repurposed heritage material from the original Mount Magdala farm. The Halswell-HornbyRiccarton Community Board has been involved in the design options. “We are delighted a new remembrance structure now features in McMahon Reserve, incorporating heritage material from the original Mount Magdala farm. It brings history to life in the Aidanfield area,” Community Board chairman Mike Mora said. The shelter stands on the site of the farm that once provided all the food for Mount Magdala, and, later, St Joseph’s Orphanage. It presents a new chapter in

Each year, the Christchurch City Council gives awards to those individuals and organisations who have performed substantial service ( usually of a voluntary nature) or made important contributions to the city and the lives of its people. Any significant service that is seen as worthy of recognition may be presented for civic commendation.

If you wish to nominate someone, please visit the Christchurch City Council website ccc.govt.nz ( KEYWORD: Civic Awards) to download a nomination form. Forms can also be collected from Council service centres and libraries.

HISTORY: The new information shelter in Halswell tells the story of a pioneering women’s refuge. ​

the story of the many shelters sited on the land. By using material from the original farm, it acknowledges the rural and social history of the area now known as Aidanfield. Indeed, Aidanfield was named after one of Mount Magdala’s founding sisters,

Mother Aidan Phelan. Mount Magdala was a largely self-sufficient home run by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd. The farm buildings were arranged in a U-shape with a central courtyard, replicating the traditional English farmstead seldom seen in New Zealand.

Mount Magdala provided food and shelter for hundreds of women, and later children, until 1966. The official opening of A Place to Shelter will be held on Sunday at 11.45am at McMahon Reserve on the corner of McMahon Drive and Aidanfield Drive.

SPORTS the world. I’m very happy with my performance and know what to work on in the future, my coach has given me some things to change,” he said. Fourteen-year-old Ieuan didn’t manage to break any records but broke six of his own personal bests in the 50, 100 and 200m breaststroke, 50 and 100m back-

stroke, 50 and 100m freestyle events. In the 200m breaststroke, he beat his previous best by 11sec. “It was a great to be able to swim at an international meet. I felt that in all of my races I gave my all. It was hard to walk up the stairs after races back to my coaches as my legs were so tired,” he said. The next event on the horizon for the Edwards brothers are the South Island championships in Blenheim in August followed by the short course championships

held in Auckland in October. Celyn’s big goal is to qualify for the Commonwealth Games, while both want to represent their country at the Paralympics. “As parents, we are really proud of the way the lads have applied themselves and worked very hard over the years to reach their goals. It was terrific to see them enjoy the competition and have the success they have strived for,” mother Nicky Edwards said. Both swimmers represent the Selwyn Swim Club.​

New treatment for fungal nails Feet First, the long-established podiatry clinic in Upper Riccarton, now has a much more efficient and effective means of dealing with the problem of fungal nails, thanks to a new machine they recently obtained from Britain, where it was designed and trialled. Clearanail is a procedure where the Podiatrists use a machine to make tiny holes in the nail without affecting the nail bed – a completely pain-free procedure that then allows the topical application of antifungal solution to directly reach the problem area. Fungal nails may cause the toenail to thicken, which consequently can make shoes feel uncomfortable. Anyone who believes they have a fungal infection of the nails is invited to make an appointment for a

consultation with Feet First so one of the qualified Podiatrists can assess if that is the case, and if so, will recommend the Clearanail procedure. This involves the initial treatment, and three follow-up appointments at monthly intervals to check progress. “Fungal nail infections won’t disappear immediately,” clinic director Charlotte Russell says, “so people need to commit to the process, which can take up to four months as the nail grows.”

effective treatment, Feet First has another unique feature – the Shoe Room. Here, clients can browse through a wide selection of ‘fashionable, functional footwear’ for men and women that not only provides support and comfort, but also looks modern and attractive. The four registered and experienced Feet First Podiatrists offer the full range of podiatry services for all ages and all conditions, with customised treatment provided for every client. They also offer a range of quality foot treatment products, including the German brand Gehwol.

The clinic at 37 Main South Road is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm, with late nights on Monday and Thursday to 7pm by appointment. The Shoe Room is open Monday to Friday 9am-4pm. There is on-site parking available. Feet First also runs several satellite clinics. These are at the Marshland Family Health Centre, Marshland Road on Mondays, the Redcliffs Clinic, Augusta Street, on Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning, the Waltham Medical Centre, Waltham Road on Wednesday afternoon, and at Darfield Pharmacy on Friday.

NEW TECHNOLOGY TO TREAT FUNGAL NAILS The Clearanail machine and related products.

Clinic director Charlotte Russell displays one of the modern boot styles available in the Shoe Room.

She says now is an ideal time to start fungal nail treatment with Clearanail, so nails will be looking healthy again when the warm, sandal-wearing weather arrives. Feet First has an introductory offer on Clearanail until the end of July. Call them on 348-7910 for details. In addition to offering this highly

FOCUS ON HEALTH

17

Time Honoured Are you Magnesium Remedy According to a country Doctor “D.C. Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an important part of a long healthy life. Dr. Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly consumed cider vinegar and honey had excellent health with many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even when well into their eighties. Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar and honey on arthritis can be remarkable with many patients reporting almost total relief after taking a course of the cider vinegar and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted calcium deposits and helped the body control calcium use. As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found regular administration of cider vinegar and honey at the onset of complaints such as the common cold, sinusitis, asthmatic attacks, hay fever, and childhood diseases such as chicken pox and measles, was accompanied by an improvement in the condition with symptoms either disappearing, or the conditions were extremely mild and soon over. Apple cider vinegar contains all the goodness of the apple in a form that is readily accepted by the body. Scientists have found over 90 different substances in ACV, among them 20 important trace elements, minerals, essential enzymes, a number of different acids including malic acid, amino acids and roughage in the form of potash and pectin. A scientific study at the Shizuka University in Japan has proven ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It can destroy free radicals, which are a major factor in ageing.) and also the ACV can break down cholesterol formations in the blood vessels. ACV and H is a powerful tonic that also promotes digestion, assimilation of nutrients and elimination of waste, and helps neutralize any toxic substances that enter the body. It is important to note not all cider vinegar is made in the traditional way and results are likely to prove disappointing with these other vinegars.

Minerals are the building blocks of good health. Some minerals are only needed in trace amounts where others like magnesium are needed in much larger amounts and on a regular basis to prevent deficiency and maintain optimum health. A large number of us do not obtain sufficient magnesium from our diet and may notice some of the common signs of deficiency. Some of the more common symptoms that may be caused by insufficient magnesium are: leg and muscle cramps, twitches, muscle pain, muscle fatigue and weakness, tremors of hands, blurred vision, restlessness, poor sleep, raised and/or unstable blood pressure, poor circulation, irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, swallowing problems, dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation, irritability, seizures, poor concentration and many more. Although many young people now show signs of magnesium deficiency symptoms generally worsen as we age due to our digestive system being less efficient. Taking a magnesium supplement of sufficient strength may be a sensible option to top

up our vital magnesium levels. Not all magnesium supplements however are well absorbed by everyone. Luckily a new marine sourced magnesium has been found that offers good levels of absorbable magnesium as well as many trace nutrients that are low in the diet but essential for good health.

GO Healthy New Zealand’s Marine Sourced Magnesium offers superior absorption in an easy to swallow 1-A-Day capsule. Each capsule provides a therapeutic dose of 500mg elemental magnesium that is easy on the stomach & digestive tract. The magnesium is obtained from a natural source of seawater & retains a complete spectrum of nutrients & trace minerals naturally found in the seawater. Seawater is similar to human blood & this makes the magnesium highly bioavailable as well as an excellent way of obtaining many trace minerals that are lacking in the modern diet, but essential for optimum health.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Be health smart this winter HaNDS arE the main pathways of germ transmission. Hand hygiene is therefore the most important measure to avoid the transmission of harmful germs. Wash your hands, before & after food preparation and eating, if you borrow someone elses equipment and of course after blowing your nose. For convenience it is a good idea to have hand sanitiser on hand to use in between washing. Sneezing & coughing into the crook of your arm or tissues rather than your hand, reduces the spread of airborne bugs. remove tissues to the rubbish immediately. Keep hydrated, two thirds of your body is made of water, so keeping hydrated is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Dehydration symptoms range from headaches to nausea to fatigue, but the effects of dehydration on your immune system are not always as obvious. Staying hydrated keeps the mucus membranes moist, which keeps the immune system functioning optimally. Unfortunately, lattes and wine don’t count, but upping your intake of water is incredibly beneficial. aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day. You’ll notice the difference!

True

Eat in season, poor nutrition impairs the immune response. Fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains and legumes or pulses are full of immune-boosting properties and antioxidants. Nature provides fresh seasonal foods to compensate for what our bodies are lacking at that time of year. Kiwifruit & citrus fruits that are in season throughout winter are packed with Vitamin C. Stress less, although short periods of stress can actually be good for us longterm chronic stress lowers our immunity, making us more susceptible to colds and flu. We all have our own ways of coping and reducing stress so whether it’s taking a bath, going to the gym, getting outdoors in the garden or having fun with the kids, do something to unwind. Not only are you doing your adrenal glands a favour, you’re also reducing your chances of being struck down by the latest virus. Get a good night’s sleep, sleep is essential for your body to rest, repair and rejuvenate. (Don’t you find you always tend to look your best after a good night’s sleep?) The human growth hormone that’s released during sleep helps repair your body at a cellular level, but it’s also beneficial for the immune system.

Seal pup gets short shrift „„ By Mark Thomas – specialist fire investigator IT WAS going to be the mother of all storms apparently. It turns out it wasn’t.  At least not in the city. But it was bitterly cold, some snow fell and on the hills it managed to settle.  I’m sure the weather did have some effect, however, with 16 motor accidents attended by our crews in the week. We did have the odd other call that could have been attributed to the weather.  Although the incident attended by Harewood and Addington crews in Hornby last Friday had its origin in ignorance rather than iciness.  A fire was lit in the fireplace by a shivering occupant.  It’s just that this was a house damaged back in the earthquakes and the chimney had been removed. The result was quite fortunate really, with smoke filling the ceiling and then the house itself. Fortunate because that smoke was all that happened.

Tuesday July 18 2017

PLAYFUL: This seal pup was escorted from Fitzgerald Ave by the city’s red watch fire crew.

Could easily have resulted in the loss of the home. We go to any number of false alarms at buildings with smoke detectors. Some are from accidental causes, where smoke from cooking or dust from workmen sanding, set the alarms off. Last Thursday’s call to the Riccarton Clinic was a bit different.

A plaster cast was being cut off a patient. Seems the plaster dust was enough to activate the alarm. Result was a full evacuation. Finally, the retrieval of a seal pup from Fitzgerald Ave and its return to the Avon was accomplished by the city’s red watch fire crew on Wednesday. Hope Mum was about.

tuition in band, strings, recorder, ukulele and classroom music in a wide range of Christchurch schools. Age is no limit - our Late Starters programme provides the opportunity for adults approaching retirement with more time on their hands to learn an instrument and join an ensemble with other like-minded adults. If Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also offers a range of weekday opportunities for learning and playing music and, if affordability is an issue, CSM may be able to offer a discount through funding provided by the Rata Foundation. Term 3 starts on Saturday 29 July and we can take new enrolments in most classes and ensembles. Please contact us via our website www. csm.org.nz and let us start you on a musical journey that will bring pleasure for a lifetime.

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.

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of dampness in your house

Now wITH the colder and wetter weather on its way, home owners are focusing on ways to make their homes comfortable, warm and healthy for their families throughout winter. RISING dAmp is an issue that affects many of our older properties which suffer from poor, or no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many people have relocated to homes that suffer from rising damp which can be associated with health problems. Independent tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the ground and enter a house every day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation and musty smells. moulds can produce various allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and very young are especially vulnerable. Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising damp and are there to help. They will come to your damp home and pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete under your timber floored home. Specially adapted for our New Zealand conditions and applications it provides a layer of protection against rising moisture. An unexpected benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed recently, is that many owners of properties which had underfloor foam concrete installed, reported that it also provided protection against liquefaction after the earthquakes. Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote and complimentary appraisal of your underfloor ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or 0508 362626 for more information.

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

ced n a l a B ure Press on lati i t n e V

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

A West Coast welcome in the heart of Redwood, beautifully refurbished and something for all the family. TRY OUR WONDERFUL MENU & DAILY SPECIALS

THE sensational Celine Toner returns to the Hornby WMC this Saturday. Last at the club in April performing ‘Full Circle’ with her sisters, Celine’s next show features her daughter Samantha and long time guitarist Ian ‘e Doctor’ Jeffries. Born in Glasgow, Scotland into a musical family, it was inevitable that Celine would follow the same path. As a teenager, her family emigrated to NZ and there began a wonderful and ful lling musical career. At 13 she was winning talent quests and Country Music Awards all around the country and it wasn’t long before she was venturing internationally with performances across the globe. She has graced such stages as e Grand Ole Opry, e Melbourne Concert Hall, e Sydney Opera House, e Bob Hope Centre in the US and the Chinese National eatre in Beijing. She has toured Australia twice with e Royal Scots Dragoon Guards as well as Tours of New Zealand and the USA. Celine has worked with NZ superstars such as Jodi Vaughan, Brendan Dugan, Patsy Rigger, Suzanne Prentcie, Gray Bartlett,

Welcome to the public launch and presentation of Living Well Park Lane

35 Whiteleigh Ave, Tower Junction, Christchurch. Come along and enjoy bubbles, canapés and a presentation with special guests in this very unique retirement community!

You’re invited to this very special event

Our buildings are designed to enhance the way you live

Inspired by the international Living Building Challenge principles, we have created a retirement development that is regenerative both for the local community and the local environment.

It’s been our mission to create aesthetically beautiful buildings using the fundamentals of good architectural design and built from technologically advanced, natural and locally sourced materials.

Arvida has partnered with leading architects Jasmax to create a living environment designed to help residents remain engaged with the greater community and be truly part of things. So rather than a closed and gated village, we’ve designed

The attitude of living well

an open one. And rather than taking charge of everything, we’re providing opportunities to support, grow, cook, bake and even help run things. From creating produce for our on-site café and market days, to caring for the gardens, chooks and animals, there is opportunity here to be involved as much or as little as you’d like. We call it the Arvida attitude of living well, and it’s all about providing you with choices.

• One, two or three bedroom large luxury apartments in four floorplans • Thermally insulated homes with superior seismic integrity built-in for Christchurch

• Fresh produce daily, grown in raised garden beds and glasshouses • Kids taking part, learning life skills and caring for the gardens and animals • Hassle-free and efficient transport, with a fleet of electric and hybrid cars provided for residents’ use.

• Wellness centre and coaches, café, gym, pool, crèche, chemist and doctors’ rooms
