THE FIRST stage of a multimillion dollar sports hub is under way in Parklands. The Pukeko Centre Sport and Recreation Community Hub, on the site of the Parklands Bowling Club, will provide indoor and outdoor recreation facilities for a number of local groups. It will become a venue for meetings and events and will also be used by nearby Parkview Primary School. The Pukeko Centre is a joint venture led by the Parklands Bowling Club and Parklands Junior Rugby Club. The bowling club suffered extensive damage in the February 22, 2011, earthquake, and the rugby club was left without a home, so three years ago they decided to work together to create

something new for their community. The clubs plan involved moving two buildings from the former Freeville School to the bowling club site in Chadbury St. The buildings had been earmarked for demolition but were given to the clubs by the Ministry of Education. The first building was relocated in May and will become the club and meeting rooms. It will open before the end of the year. The other – a larger building that was once the school’s hall – is expected to open next year as a venue for indoor sports, performances and events. The hub will offer bowling greens, a playground and all-weather courts for netball, petanque and tennis. •Turn to page 4

Tuesday July 18 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THE NEW Parklands sports hub looks like being a great addition to the area – and no surprises on its name (see page 1). Pukeko have to be quick and nimble, usually to avoid vehicles on the road, in the east – and quick and nimble is what the catch cry will be at the new sports centre. Parklands sport does need a shot in the arm. It has potential to be a strong base for a variety of codes with kids from new families a decade and a bit ago now starting to grow up. A good example of that is the Parklands under-14 football team (see page 11) which beat an Auckland side to win their grade at the Christchurch International Cup tournament. The hub will be great for the community. – Barry Clarke

News Fridge feeds up to 80 a day „„ By Caitlin Miles AN INITIATIVE to give away free food in New Brighton has taken off with more success than first thought. Waimairi Beach’s Trudy Burrows started up a community fridge and pantry last month, and she has been “overwhelmed” by the amount of people using it. She said most days Trudy there are between 50 Burrows to 80 people there getting what they need from the fridge and pantry, located at 46 Hawke St. “We stock it up two times a day and, by the end of the day, it is empty again,” Mrs Burrows said. That doesn’t bother her, though, she’s glad people who need it are using the service – as long as they don’t use it to get all of their groceries. “Sometimes things can get expensive – an unexpected bill can make it hard to eat,” she said. She said plenty of people donate what they can – whether it was a loaf of bread or filling up the whole fridge. The Canterbury District

Health Board mobile mental health service and the Rosewood Rest Home and Hospital filled up the pantry on two separate occasions. “It’s just been really overwhelming, the support has been really amazing,” Mrs Burrows

said. She said she was also surprised by the people offering their help. “I’ve had offers from people in Sumner, Mt Pleasant and Redcliffs. I can’t believe they would offer to come all this way,” she said.

In Brief PLAYGROUND FEEDBACK CLOSES ON SUNDAY It’s the last week for New Brighton residents to provide their input into the New Brighton Beachside Playground plans. The plans include three distinctive play zones – a water-play and splash-pad zone, a dry play zone, and a toddlers’ zone. A range of features have been proposed for the three different areas and the iconic whale will remain in the wet area. There will also be quiet spaces and inclusive play components for disabled people. The consultation period will close on Sunday. To give your feedback on the plans, go to https://ccc.govt. nz/the-council/consultationsand-submissions/haveyoursay/ show/48 LONSDALE ST WORK A section on Lonsdale St, New Brighton, will be closed until August 4 while work is carried out on a water main renewal.

Marathon knitting effort to mark WW1 centenary KNITTED POPPIES have been on display throughout the Linwood Library thanks to Vonnie Kondra who put her knitting needles to work to make more than 350 of them. The city libraries got involved with a Government-run programme called WW100 – which marks the centenary of World War 1. One of the library staff suggested getting the community to make poppies for a display. Ms Kondra got involved in the project after her friend sent her to the library to get knitting and crochet patterns for poppies. She decided to pick up her needles and help out with the project – but she didn’t just make one or two, she made 360. Although she started out with her own wool, it didn’t take long before the Woolston Community Centre donated $50 towards more wool, with others donating wool as well. Some members of her family were involved in WW1 in France, Palestine and El-Alamein in Egypt, which made it a very special experience for her. Ms Kondra used to knit for her son and said this project was a

good way to “get back into it”. She took the poppies to the Linwood Library, where some of them were put on display and others were made into wreaths, which were dropped off to a nearby Returned Services Asso-

ciation. Ms Kondra is a member of the Woolston Community Centre, volunteers at the Ferry Rd Charity Barn, is a helper with the Edmonds Factory Gardens and is also a packer for the Linwood Fruit & Vege Co-op.

•From page 1 Pukeko Centre joint project committee spokesman Wayne Eden said the development has been designed to meet the needs of the growing Parklands community and to fill gaps rather than compete with existing facilities. “This is a centre that will enhance and complement what is already out here in the community and make it a vibrant, active and connected place to be,” Mr Eden said. The bowling club’s insurance payout, along with $600,000 already raised through grants

from the Rata Foundation, New Zealand Community Trust and Southern Trust, means that stage one of the project is fully funded. The project was given a boost by receiving a $400,000 grant from the Lotteries Commission a few weeks ago, but further sponsorship is needed to fully realise stages two to four of the project. •Members of the community can donate towards the Pukeko Centre Sport and Recreation Community Hub through its Givealittle page at https:// givealittle.co.nz/cause/ thepukekocentre

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

Finding reward in teaching 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,

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. 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

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.

Taking Care of Business Buying or selling commercial or residential property, leases, employment contracts, building contracts, we take care of it for you, so you can take care of business. 3 locations: New Brighton, Styx Mill & Kaiapoi www.pierlaw.co.nz

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 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.

INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS: The National Brass Band of New Zealand, which includes 13 Christchurch members, were runners-up in its section of the World Music Contest. ​

Woolston Brass members play big role in international success CHRISTCHURCH musicians feature prominently in the National Brass Band of New Zealand, which was named runner-up in the brass band section of the World Music Contest. A third of the band members are from Christchurch, with all but one playing for Woolston Brass. The contest is held every four years in Kerkrade, the Netherlands. The New Zealand band’s programme opened with Whakarangatiratanga, commissioned from New Zealand composer Gareth Farr. The programme also featured a new major work written for the band by renowned English composer Peter Graham. The 39th Parallel is based on the landscape and mythology of the Wanganui region in memory of brass band

icon Kevin Jarrett. This year more than 20,000 musicians, making up 260 bands from 32 countries and five continents, participated. The band performed concerts in Stein, Netherlands, and Aachen, Germany, before returning to New Zealand last week. •The 13 Christchurch musicians are Kevin McMorran, New Brighton, Anthony Smith, Sydenham, Kevin Hickman, Sydenham, and his brother Graham, Huntsbury, Andrew Yorkstone, Burnham, Joe Thomas and Sam Pinder, Hoon Hay, Phillip Johnston, Spreydon, Nigel Seaton and his son Jordan (the youngest member of the national band at 20 years of age), John Mason, Burnham, Cameron Lee, Ilam and Vaea Peterson, Halswell.

Jay’s off to Aussie rules territory to represent NZ NEW BRIGHTON’S Jay Johnson has an opportunity to take his talent to the home of Australian rules football when he represents New Zealand in Melbourne next month. It will be Johnson’s second appearance at the AFL International Cup when he takes the field for the New Zealand Hawks. Johnson, who plays for the Eastern Blues, is the only player selected out of the Canterbury Australian Football League. Johnson was introduced to AFL in 2012 by All Blacks sevens player Sam Dickson and fell in love with the game. He made his debut for the New Zealand senior side in 2014. “I love the space. It’s a 360 degree game. It’s a sport where even if you’re going backwards you can still end up going forward. There is always time to make something happen, which is satisfying,” said Johnson. “I can’t wait to run out there with the boys. There are teams coming from all over the world. Places like Sweden, America, South Africa and Papua New Guinea.” While Johnson plays for the Blues in the Canterbury league, he also plays for the Western

This year’s final will be played as a curtain-raiser to an AFL match at the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground. New Zealand hasn’t won the cup since their victory in the second edition of the tournament in 2005.

PARKLANDS under-14 football team were crowned champions after a 2-0 win over Auckland’s Western Springs in the Christchurch International Cup tournament. The tournament is in its second year and has six grades from under-9 to under-14, with the under-13 and 14 grades starting the tournament off on July 8-9. Parklands were the most successful Christchurch club in the 22-team tournament after FC Nelson beat Harewood’s Nomads United in the under-13 final 2-1. Parklands dominated pool A, winning all three games. They then beat Selwyn United in a penalty shoot-out in the quarter-final and took down FC Twenty11 1-0 in the semi-final to advance.

Nomads under-13s proved to be a strong side during the tournament. They made the final after beating Christchurch United FC Academy on penalties, while FC Nelson beat Cashmere Technical in the other semi-final. In an exciting final, FC Nelson went up 2-1 in the first half and, after a scoreless second half, they took the under-13 cup up to Nelson. Tournament director Ricardo Felitti said it’s great to see clubs from all over the country competing against each other. “All the teams that are coming down to Christchurch come down to win the tournament. They put out their best squads, which contributes to the level of the tournament and makes the tournament even more competitive,” he said.

Your Local Views We said:

Beach school pool.

The Costal-Burwood Community Board decided to remove the dead trees described as ‘ghostly and depressing’ beside the Bridge St bridge and former Pleasant Point Yacht Club

Kim Button – I’ve lived in the area since 1970 and no one I know has ever called it North New Brighton – always been North Beach. Jo Zervos – My family always called it North New Brighton. North Beach was just a part of North New Brighton.

You said: Jenny Blacklock – Ghostly and depressing? No way, a photographers dream? Yes, very much . . . believe it or not, there is art there.

Liz Bruce – I think this is an artist’s paradise . . .

Debbie Erickson – Ghostly, nothing wrong with them. Can’t nature be left alone?

Trevor Taylor – They look better than that stupid Gormley statue in town.

Tanya Didham – I love these trees – don’t find them depressing at all, seen herons sitting on them.

Pam Curry – I think they’re beautiful.

Steve McLeod – Good to see the community board tackling the hard-hitting subjects. Definitely a danger to the hordes of people utilising that area. Melanie Bloom – Seriously anything with a bit of character gets removed. Stephen Graham – The city councils’ dead tree extermination unit won’t listen to your voices. Amanda White – What a shame . . . I love this tree.

Charmaine Andresen – Just leave it be. We said: The North New Brighton Residents’ Association is considering changing its name to North Beach and wanted to know if people preferred North Beach or North New Brighton which turned into a debate You said: Graham Milesi – I lived in

that area when I was growing up. Went to North Beach School, swam for North Beach Surf Club and we always knew the hall as North Beach Memorial Hall. Somewhere along the way this name North New Brighton has become the more common name. Maybe it is the new comers to the area are looking for a more upmarket name. Chris McCalman – For what it’s worth my family lived in the area from the 1930s and was always North Beach – the school, surf club, the memorial hall were all North Beach when I was growing up. Mary Hutching – When I was a kid growing up there mum used to say defensively “we live at North New Brighton not Brighton.” Christchurch was so snobby in those days about the east side. I would have said that North Beach

used to refer to the area around the sea but North New Brighton covered the wider area. Maria Mann – I lived in Effingham St in the 70s, early 80s it was called North Beach. Our school was called North New Brighton School. Nadine Godman – North Beach will always be North Beach to us locals so why waste money deciding wether or not to call it anything else? No-brainer really. Meg McLean – We lived there from 2000 until 2005. My son went to North New Brighton School but our mail had either North New Brighton, North Beach or even Waimairi Beach on it. Nellie Pett – It was called North Beach in my day. I went to Catholic school in New Brighton and went swimming at the North

Justin Simpson – North Beach just sounds nicer doesn’t it for some reason. Anna Morgan – North Beach is what I call it and probably always will to be fair. Glenn Matthews – Being from the east and living in Effingham St growing up, North Beach it is. Chris Moyse – The areas when we lived there from the early 70s was – North Beach, New Brighton, South Brighton, Southshore. Greg Keen – I was born there, North New Brighton is official name was always North Beach for short. Lauchlan Brady – New Brighton is fine. Why are so many suburbs wanting a name change, their current name is good as it is.

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

FUTURE STARS: Lily Bray (left), Britneylee Nicholson and Emma Clarke have been selected in the New Zealand secondary school girls’ football team which will travel to Singapore at the end of September.

Coastal Spirit teens headed to Singapore with national team „„ By Amelia ChristensenRose COASTAL SPIRIT’S Lily Bray, Britneylee Nicholson and Emma Clarke have been named in the New Zealand secondary school girls’ football team to travel to Singapore at the end of September. They will play two games against the Singapore women’s national A side and two games against the women’s club champions at Jalan Besar Stadium.

“It’s a good opportunity to form a really good team and culture,” Nicholson, 17, said. Clarke, 17, and Bray, 16, were at school when they received the email letting them know they had made the team. “I let out a small scream and I couldn’t stop smiling. I have really been wanting to get into this team for a while now,” Bray said. Said Nicholson: “When

I first got the email late at night I went around the house yelling and waking everyone up, I was so excited. I just felt all the hard work I had put in had paid off.” All three girls agree that the best part of being selected for the team is the great opportunity to play with other talented girls in a different country. The girls will be in Singapore from September 27 to October 6.

Late night teen basketball about more than just sport „„ By Caitlin Miles TEENAGERS staying out until midnight might not sound good – but that’s the point of Midnight Basketball. It’s a new programme being led by Canterbury Basketball at the Celebration Lions Centre in Aranui. It aims to encourage young people aged between 13 and 18 to play basketball. It is open to males and

females to build skills and confidence. Young people need to be nominated to take part in the programme. Canterbury Basketball is working with Haeata Community Campus, Mairehau High School, Linwood College and other relevant youthfocused organisations. It’s not just about basketball, though, it will also include workshops on nutrition, health and wellbeing, substance misuse, communication, conflict

resolution and other topics. Canterbury Basketball general manager Paul Duggan said the programme was the first of its kind in the country. The idea was taken from Australia, where it operates on a national scale. It starts at 8.15pm and includes a hot meal, two games of basketball a life skills workshop and a free bus home at midnight. The programme will run for seven weeks from August 4 to September 15.

Christchurch School of Music The Christchurch School of Music is a family-oriented community aimed at providing quality music education in and around Christchurch. CSM is a not-for-profit organisation with a strong focus on community. On a Saturday morning the whole family can find something to suit. Preschool and junior school children can start their musical journey by joining in our experiential “Take Off with Music” while older children and adults may opt for group or individual lessons on a specific instrument (including voice). Those who already play are welcome to join in one of the great ensembles which all take part in regular concerts including Saturday soirees and the popular annual Showcase Concert. Solo Recitals where individuals can perform are held regularly. CSM also provides a comprehensive music education to participating primary schools via its Outreach programmes offering

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.

Risingholme Community Centre Term 3 Term 3 sees us continuing to offer a range of classes across the city at Risingholme Community Centre, Riccarton High School, Shirley Boys High School, Christchurch Girls High School and Hornby High School, many of which have become a tradition of Risingholme Community Centre programme. So as we settle into the winter months a great way to lift the winter spirits, is to enrol in a course of interest – maybe something that you have tried before and want to explore further or perhaps you would like to try something new. It has been proven that Lifelong Learning has many benefits with the obvious ones being the continuation of a learning journey, learning a new skill, increased confidence, meeting new people and much more.

improve your English or learn a new language you can enrol via our website www.risingholme.org.nz or phone the Risingholme office 332 7359 New and exciting at Risingholme Community Centre is Zentangle. What is this you might say - well if you can’t sit still enough for yoga, or your mind wanders in meditation, or you would like a creative aspect to your mindfulness, this may work for you. This method of drawing does not require any previous drawing ability, it can be a 15 minute practice you can build into your everyday, or you can explore some of the more creative ways you can then use this design practise to make your own cards, images, or decorate products. This class will teach you a variety of ‘tangles’ and get you started on your Zentangle path in a supportive and creative atmosphere, and you can build it at a pace that suits you, within your time constraints or desire as you move through the term.

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.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

21

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.

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.
