People power wins over Harewood liquor store bid But decision can be appealed „„ By Julia Evans “WHEN A neighbourhood rallies, we can do anything.” That was reaction of Harewood resident Colin Fussell after a long-running bid to set up a liquor store in Trafford St failed. Nearby residents had opposed the Harewood Bottle Store fighting it tooth and nail for more than eight months. Businessman Samarth Rajeshkumar Limbachiya’s application for a liquor licence to operate the Harewood Bottle Store was declined by the city council’s district licensing committee last week. Said Mr Fussell when contacted by Nor’West News: “I’m swinging from the rafters.” But the battle may not be over as the decision could be subject to an appeal by Mr Limbachiya’s if he applies within 10 working days. The end of that appeal period is August 9. Nor’West News has not been able to make contact with Mr Limbachiya to see if he will appeal. And Mr Fussell said although that comes with the territory, the residents would be ready for another fight so it would be a waste of the applicant’s money. CHAMPION: The battle is over for Trafford St residents Bruce Tulloch (left) and Colin Fussell. •Turn to page 5

Tuesday August 1 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

WHEN COMMUNITY awards are handed out this year, top of the list in the Harewood area and beyond should be Colin Fussell and Bruce Tulloch. The pair have fought tooth and nail to keep a new liquor store out of their neighbourhood. And they’ve won. That’s no mean feat given most new booze outlets in suburbia get through the liquor licensing process. But Colin and Bruce’s doggedness over the past several months has paid off. They haven’t taken a backward step in the fight against the Trafford St bid and the huge petition they put together was the backbone of a very good community campaign. So well done Bruce and Colin – I hope your community recognises the sterling and tiresome effort you have put in. – Barry Clarke

Crusade to make pupils safer

„„ By Julia Evans THE CRUSADERS have touched down in South Africa and are in training mode for the weekend’s Super Rugby final against the Lions. But when they get home, players are set to take on a new challenge – helping St Albans School pupils cross the road. Mother Rachel Donaldson is at the helm of a crusade to stop red light runners at the intersection of Cranford and Berwick Sts. Rachel The signs she Donaldson put up at the intersection, which read “slow down,” “St Albans children matter” and “don’t be that driver who kills a child” have all been stolen. But Mrs Donaldson has far from given up on her mission. She said now she’s on the case of the Crusaders, who have agreed to run a patrol at the intersection after school. “I’ve been in touch and they’ve agreed, hopefully, it’ll happen sometime this term,” Mrs Donaldson said. Although with their trip to

SAFETY: Red light runners at this Cranford St intersection put St Albans School children in danger

daily. ​

South Africa and final to prepare for, she said it’s been a tough ask locking in an exact date. But something needs to happen because red light runners have plagued the intersection for too long, she said. That being the case, momentum behind changing the attitude of drivers through that intersection cannot slow down. “The hope is that people seeing the Crusaders guiding children across the road will help spread

the message,” Mrs Donaldson said. Her campaign was sparked when she saw a St Albans Primary School pupil clipped by the wing mirror of a car driving through a red light at the intersection. “The car brushed right past him,” Mrs Donaldson said. And the intersection has since been the target for a police sting that saw 17 tickets issued to dangerous drivers within an hour.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIVE WITH PAIN

The Papanui-Innes Community Board is also behind Mrs Donaldson and St Albans School parents. It has asked city council staff to do a safety audit of the streets around the school, including the Cranford St intersection. It is also setting up a meeting involving city council staff, board members, police, school staff and parents to come up with permanent solutions to the problem.

In Brief NEW LONE STAR The city’s fourth Lone Star restaurant will become the latest tenant at Harewood’s Spitfire Square. The new restaurant is on track to open at the airport development in September. The flooring has been completed and the kitchen area has just been finished. The restaurant is currently seeking to obtain its liquor licence through the city council. TRAFFIC DELAYS Delays of up to 20min are possible at the Russley Rd and Memorial Ave intersection from August 4-6. Motorists travelling to and from the airport are advised to plan ahead and allow plenty of extra travel time. Alternatively, motorists should consider taking other routes such as Harewood Rd or the southern airport access road. CLUB LEASE RENEWED Burnside Rugby Football Club has some certainty over its future at Burnside Park. The Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board approved the club’s renewed lease of the rooms at the park for the next 33 years. The lease is broken into three terms of 11 years so the club will have to seek renewal at the end of each term.

NEW HOME: Downer has applied to the city council for temporary use of this site at 10 Shirley Rd. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Application lodged to use community centre site „„ By Julia Evans THE SITE of the Shirley Community Centre is set to become the new home of Downer Group. The space has been used as headquarters for various different construction companies since the centre was demolished in 2012. And with its rebuild not expected to begin until 2019, the city council is processing the latest application for its use. Downer is set to occupy the 10 Shirley Rd site as part of the Dudley Creek Flood Remediation work. Downer’s application said that the established facilities at the site are close to where it needs to work and would be ideal. However, there will be implications for neighbours including

construction traffic and heavy vehicles, noise, dust and run-off. But Downer said it will limit unnecessary vehicle movement and use the existing environmental management plan. And it has a dedicated communications team to deal with all concerns and issues. Working hours at the site will be from 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 7.30am to 12.30pm on Saturdays. The Dudley Creek work is expected to finish in May 2018. It comes after residents in Guild St had issues with dust, noise and run-off from neighbouring Worthington Contracting. However, the company left the area to appease residents and moved to a new site in North Canterbury.

Warm welcome for principal „„ By Julia Evans BELFAST SCHOOL has welcomed its new principal with a special Mihi Whakatau, a Maori welcoming. Sue Elley, who is taking up the role, said it was the most wonderful experience. She replaces veteran principal, Peter Simpson, who sat at the helm of the school for 23 years.

Motorway plan fight continues Community board opposes extra lane across Waimakariri River „„ By Julia Evans THE FIGHT against a third Northern Motorway lane continues for the Papanui-Innes Community Board. The board fears traffic build-up in St Albans, and the surrounding areas, particularly Cranford St, if a third southbound lane on the Northern Ali Jones Motorway gets the green light. In a submission to Environment Canterbury opposing the additional lane, the board said there had not been enough investigation done into mitigating the traffic effects. “The board still believes the downstream effects need looking into before anyone can celebrate the easing of congestion, or the assumption that congestion will ease,” chairwoman Ali Jones said.

PROPOSAL: The Papanui-Innes Community Board fears downstream congestion if the third lane is approved.

The proposal is an additional high occupancy vehicle lane that will run into the city across the Waimakariri River bridge in a bid to ease building commuter congestion. If done in conjunction with work on the Northern Corridor, it will set taxpayers back around $20 million. But if not, it could cost up to $34 million. And without proper investigation into the downstream effects, the board will remain staunchly

opposed. “The board opposes the construction of a third lane on the bridge until such a time as the downstream effects of the proposed lane have been fully investigated, consulted on with the community and mitigation measure put in place,” the submission said. But that is not all the board is concerned about. It is also concerned the third lane will be underutilised and too difficult to enforce that only high occupancy vehicles

use it. Although it did acknowledge the effort undertaken to address the congestion on the motorway. The board thinks the money would be better spent on running a light rail trial from North Canterbury. “It’s a lost opportunity,” Ms Jones said. Board member and city councillor Mike Davidson abstained from the submission due to a conflict of interest, as he sits on the hearings panel. But the rest of the board, which included Ms Jones, deputy chairwoman Emma Norrish and members John Stringer, Jo Byrne and city councillor Pauline Cotter all supported the submission. ECan opened the proposal for public feedback until July 13. It received about 180 submissions, which are finalised and summary report of the submissions is being written. Public hearings are scheduled to be held on August 7 and 14 at ECan’s council chamber. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think a third lane is a good idea? Or will it just cause more traffic chaos?

People power wins over liquor store bid

•From page 1 “Our opposition will be ready and waiting,” Mr Fussell said. He and fellow Trafford St resident Bruce Tulloch championed a petition against the application that was signed by 1144 people. And the city council received 86 further public objections before the hearing on July 13 and 14. Mr Tulloch said there are more than enough options for buying liquor in the area so there was no logic behind granting yet another licence. He thanked everyone who had contributed to the campaign. Mr Fussell said while this battle was won, the war is not over. “The battle has been won but we need to address the greater issue in other neighbourhoods who are facing the same problem,” Mr Fussell said. In its report, the licensing committee said granting the application would be detrimental to the neighbourhood. “We have formed the opinion that amenity and good order would be reduced by more than a minor amount. The foreseen reduction may not be great but it is likely to impact on the people who live in the vicinity,” the report said.

BUS: The mobile library won’t be stopping in Merivale any time soon.

A reader responds to the article in Nor’West News about the mobile library not stopping in Merivale Annette Chandler – I read your article about the mobile library and agree there is no need for it in this affluent area. I have come back to live here after three years away and can’t believe how Merivale has deteriorated. I’m retired but after living overseas and in Auckland find it hard to understand why this has happened. Merivale Mall is dead, the shops too expensive and very few young people around. It’s sad as there is no culture or atmosphere anywhere. The mall should introduce young trendy shops with cheaper modern clothes and change their attitude. The new cafe in the mall is awful and again too expensive. As for the supermarket, what can I say! Well, I’ve had my say and really think that this suburb is doomed

to never attract trendy young people to live here unless they’re born here. I can think of better, warmer cities to retire in. Readers also respond to the article about the prospect of revamping Bishopdale L Barnes – I agree the toilets are disgusting! Just the smell as you walk past puts me off the area. Fill the empty shops to create a better shopping area. Shirley Bastin – My husband Dave and I have lived and shopped in the Bishopdale area now for about 35 years, so we like the idea of having the chance to have a little say in the rejuvenation of the mall. One thing that we feel would really benefit locals would be if the Orbiter bus route changed slightly so that it came up to Farrington Ave or similar. Years ago the area was very well served with buses but now there are few buses available.

„„ By Julia Evans IT HAS been a good year for the Julie Hawke School of Dance. Teacher Julie Hawke was awarded a New Zealand Order of Merit Award for her services to highland dance in June. And now her St Andrew’s College-based dance school has just blown the competition out of the water at the New Zealand Highland and National Dancing Championships. Ms Hawke said she was so proud of all her students who participated but the list of those who took home prizes speaks for itself. Georgia Tomasi was named the six and under champion, Tamati Graham was the eight and under champion and Siara

Clarke won the under 12 champion title. In the 18 and over category Lewis Gibson won four championship titles in sword dance, Irish jig double time, Irish hornpipe and sailor’s hornpipe, which saw him take home the overall champion title. Sarah Gluyas won three championship titles in Highland reel, Highland fling and reel O’Tulloch, which led her to win the 18 and over runner-up New Zealand champion title. Runner-up under 10 champion went to Chloe Graham. The competition was held at the Burnside High School Aurora Centre in July with more than 200 competitors from all around the country.

WINNERS: Women’s 18 and over New Zealand runner-up Sarah Gluyas, teacher Julie Hawke and men’s 18 and over New Zealand champion Lewis Gibson.

AWARDS: Julie Hawke and the winners from her school of dance.

The Palms gives back to schools WITH HELP from the nearby mall, Banks Avenue Primary School will soon be able to improve its new radio station. The Palms Shopping Centre’s “Shop for your School” competition drew entries from 11 primary schools, with each planning to use the prize money for a different goal. Throughout June, families who signed up were able to exchange their shopping receipts from The Palms for points for their school. In first place was Banks Avenue School, which received $3000 for its efforts, Mairehau Primary School came in second, winning $2000, and third was Queenspark School with $1000. Marshland School and Shirley Primary School each received $500. “It’s been a great competition for getting the whole school involved in a common cause, and the prize money is an added bonus,” said Toni Burnside, principal of Banks Avenue School. “We have encouraged the children to bring their receipts to school to get a heart token, and when they earn 50 tokens, they get a values wrist band for togetherness.” As for the prize money, Mrs Burnside said the fun has already been had. “As a school, we are always short of money so spending it would not be difficult. We have

just set up a school radio station and would love to use the money for two chairs for our radio hosts,” she said. But how the rest of the money is spent is up to the children and their families, who did all the hard work. Runner-up Mairehau Primary School also enjoyed the school spirit of the competition. Bridey Hentschel, chairwoman of the Mairehau home and school committee, said the school encouraged students to bring in their receipts and the school donated them collectively. “We are so grateful for the prize money and hope to use it for more sports equipment and for school trips,” Ms Hentschel said.

Queenspark Primary School hopes to use the money for learning resources. Janet Vincent, The Palms Shopping Centre marketing manager, said the mall really wanted to reward these schools

for supporting their local shopping centre and community. “Our relationship with Banks Ave is a very special one and they are close to our hearts,” she said. •More schools, page 10

Natalya Flood, Kate Brown, Alice Hunter, Cara Birch, Cassidy Causer, Lucy Maynar, Chloe Graham, Estella Velenski, Emma Mason and Miya Hartstonge had their projects selected by judge, Marie Squire, from Canterbury University’s chemistry department. The project is part of the school’s CREST programme. Year 7 teachers are further engaging pupils by including elements of “gamification” into learning. The CREST programme was designed around students earn-

ing experience points to go up a level in their stages of learning. “We take science and technology very seriously at Selwyn House,” teacher Simon Christie said. Mr Christie stresses the importance of the subjects in his class because he said the girls are living in a time of unbelievable technological upheaval. “We want our students to not just be a part of that, but to lead it, and lead it ethically,” he said.

Tim WraighT and Ché VinCenT - Changing STorieS Both Tim Wraight and Ché Vincent live in the Motueka region in the top of the South Island, an area of diverse landscapes and environments from which to draw inspiration for their work. Tim’s carved wooden work for ‘Changing Stories’ exhibition explores the traditions associated with the reverence given to relics and remains, using the cultural practices of making intricate containers that different cultures fashion to hold these precious objects, Maori wakahuia (treasure boxes) and wakatupapaku (bone boxes) and European reliquaries which held the bones of saints, are the starting point for these pieces. Found remains of creatures and objects from the natural environment in his home area. Tim has constructed stories around fictional and whimsical; taking an object and giving it a new narrative and honouring its previous existence. Ché’s work for this exhibition is formed by his passion for botany and natural processes; exploring the patterns created by plant forms by the way water changes and repeats a flow pattern by decay and renewal. He uses recycled ‘Edges’ by Ché Vincent from the copper panels through a process of serendipitous exhibition ‘Changing Stories’ at experimentation. Ché has developed a fluid and Little River Gallery from August 5th intuitive approach and has developed methods of melting, beating, bending, and fusing copper into organic forms.

Papanui teens karate success „„ By Andrew King PAPANUI HIGH students Britney Aldridge, Jade Taylor and Aidan Batt all had success at the national karate championships in Wellington. Aldridge, 18, won gold in the female 18 and over, under-55kg kumite, and the female under-21, under-65kg kumite categories, as well as bronze in the under-21 kata. She said the victories were an incentive, especially now that she is ranked No 1 in her grades, to WINNERS: Jade Taylor (left) and keep working and getting better at her craft. Britney Aldridge show off their impressive haul of medals. “For me to be labelled and

your one stop shop! We welcome you to come along and have a look

ranked as a national champ is awesome . . . and it just makes me train even harder to make sure I stay on top,” she said. “Ever since I was a kid, the Olympics had always been a dream of mine. And now that our sport is in the games, I hope that 2024 will give me a chance to make my dream a reality.” Taylor, 16, won gold in the female 14-17 team kata and female 14-17 team kumite categories, as well as silver in the female 16-17, 58kg-plus kumite category. “Being a tomboy and having two left feet meant ballet wasn’t an option,” Taylor said. “It feels good to achieve when you have

put a lot of time and training into it.” Batt, 14, received a silver medal for his efforts in the male 14-17 team kata category. He said it was all about the team getting a result. “Knowing my team and I trained hours upon hours perfecting our routine to end up second in New Zealand is a great success,” he said. The event was held from July 15-16 and involved more than 700 competitors across 150 categories. •Oisin Roberts takes gold in judo, page 13

Roberts grabs gold at schools champs Burnside claims SPORTS first win

„„ By Andrew King ST ANDREW’S College student Oisin Roberts fought his way to a gold medal at the New Zealand secondary schools judo tournament in Lincoln. Roberts, 17, won the under73kg category of the tournament held from July 15-16, which adds to his already impressive tally of medals. “The first thing that went through my head was probably relief that all my fights were over and I had managed to win them all,” Roberts said. In total, he has won two gold and three silver medals during his time competing in national tournaments, as well as a bronze medal in 2015 at the Oceania judo championships. The win allows him to look ahead to bigger and better events, such as the Olympics and Commonwealth Games, which he is keen to compete in. “It would be awesome if I could compete at the Olympics or Commonwealth Games, but I still need to consider whether this is where I want to take my

judo and how I would balance this with the rest of my life,” he said. Roberts father, who lives in Somerfield, got him into the sport at an early age and he loved the competitive side of it. “When you get to stand at the top of the podium, that is when you realise that all your hard work was worth it in the end,” he said. “Both my parents and my coach said that I had fought very well and thoroughly deserved the medal. My parents also said that they were very proud of me.” SOLID TECHNIQUE: St Andrew’s Oisin Roberts throws Onslow College’s Maxim Zhilkin at the national secondary schools judo tournament.

Rowers to take on the world „„ By Andrew King ST ANDREW’S rowers Ben Taylor and Thomas Russel have touched down in Trakai, Lithuania, and tomorrow will begin their quest with the junior men’s coxless quad for world championship glory. The pair departed on July 23 with the 21-strong New Zealand team who will compete in eight events at the Junior World Rowing Championships. Taylor and Russel had both been training at the New Zealand Rowing Gallagher High-Performance Centre at Lake Karapiro in preparation for the regatta. They were a part of the winning St Andrew’s Maadi Cup team which not only brought back the top prize for the first time in the college’s history, but the Springbok Shield as well. Both said they are incredibly proud to be able to represent their country in a sport they love.

HOPEFUL: Ben Taylor (left) and Thomas Russel will begin their quest with the junior men’s coxless quad for world championship glory tomorrow.

There will be more than 745 competitors from 58 countries competing in the championships which ends on Sunday. The crew of four also includes Matt MacDonald and Daniel Williamson, of Auckland, and is coached by Tony O’Connor.

Burnside, also known as The Beasts, Cashmere High and St Thomas’ all moved up a notch on the table after league leaders St Andrew’s were beaten 1-0 by St Thomas’ last week. St Andrew’s dropped from first to fourth and will be looking to get back to their winning ways when they take on 11thplaced Middleton Grange at 4pm tomorrow at the Christchurch Football Centre, where all games are played this year. Papanui High secured their

third win of the season beating Riccarton High 3-2. They now turn their attention to Christ’s at 7.30pm tomorrow. Christchurch Boys’ High, who are coming off a 2-0 loss to Lincoln High, will look to grab three points from Shirley when they face each other tomorrow night at 5.45pm. Sixth-placed St Bede’s will look to continue to nip at the heels of the league leaders when they take on struggling Rangiora at 4pm after beating Shirley last week 2-0.

„„ By Andrew King BURNSIDE HIGH recorded its first win of the season in the UC Championship with a tight 33-31 victory over Mid-Canterbury Combined on Saturday. With two rounds to go, it would have been a nervous time for the boys’ from Memorial Ave thinking a winless season was in store for them. Down 18-0 at halftime, the thought of another defeat must have stirred something inside Burnside as they came out and scored 33 points in the second stand giving them a bonus point win moving them off the bottom of the table. In the other games, Christchurch Boys’ High beat Marlborough Boys’ 20-14 in Blenheim which was enough to retain second position on the table, two points behind Timaru Boys’ High. CBHS has a game in hand and could go top of the table in the final round with a win, as Timaru has the bye. St Andrew’s is nipping at the heels of the top four with a 17-12 win over St Thomas’ on Saturday, although it does not get much easier for the boys from Papanui Rd with thirdplaced Christ’s this Saturday and Nelson College the week after that. St Bede’s sat out round 14 with the bye and will look to make a strong finish to the season when they play Waimea Combined on Saturday before heading to Timaru to take on Aoraki Combined.

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

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

SENIOR LIVING Osteoporosis is a serious condition

GO-Advanced ...but research shows it can be reversed! Omega-PC Fish Oil It is well known how important omega-3 fatty acids are to good health. It is estimated most people don’t even get a third of the recommended omega-3 fatty acids on a weekly basis. Countries with a higher amounts of omega-3 in their diet are known to have lower cardiovascular disease and, in many cases, better overall health. Recent research has shown inflammation to be a big part of disease and the ageing process. Fish oil can help reduce inflammation by providing essential fatty acids required by the body to heal itself and maintain good health. Until now most fish oil only contained omega-3 fatty acids in triglyceride form. Fish, however, naturally contain omega-3 in triglyceride and phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the manufacturing process. GO-Advanced Omega-PC sets new standards in fish oil as it contains omega-3 attached to both triglycerides and phospholipids.

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 GO-Advanced Omega-PC is produced surgery, as there is a serious risk associated from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish with it of deep vein thrombosis and using a new advanced and more natural pulmonary embolism leading to increased cold extraction process that better preserves the natural nutrient profile found mortality.

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.

NOT all FISH OIl IS CreaTed eQUal! ONLY GO OMEGA-PC retains the natural Phospholipids that have been shown to be so beneficial for Good Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL! Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally contain Omega-3 in a triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the manufacturing process. GO OMEGA-PC is produced using a new more natural cold extraction process that better preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. Studies show GO OMEGA-PC offers superior absorption with increased omega-3 fatty acids in organs giving the potential for more health benefits.

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

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 CorbyYarrall 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

Romeo Juliet T H E R Y M A N H E A LT H C A R E S E A S O N O F

A NEW BALLET by Francesco Ventriglia

Isaac Theatre Royal 25 – 26 August

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR: PATRICIA BARKER


FALL I N LOVE THIS WINTER W I T H T H E R OYA L NEW ZEALAND BALLET’S WORLD PREMIERE OF ROMEO AND JULIET

ROMEO, ROMEO, WHEREFORE ART THOU ROMEO?

A sunlit piazza, the candlelit corner of a noble ballroom, a moonlit balcony… when young lovers meet, the world is stilled… then changed forever. Italian choreographer Francesco Ventriglia creates a new production of Shakespeare’s great love story, especially for the Royal New Zealand Ballet. This brand new ballet, with exquisite sets and costumes by Oscar-winning designer James Acheson (The Last Emperor, Dangerous Liaisons) brings to life all of the splendour and seduction of Renaissance Verona, swept up in Prokofiev’s exhilarating, passionate score. Join us as we follow the Montagues and Capulets in Shakespeare’s original tale of two starcrossed lovers though desire, struggle and tragedy. Sure to be the highlight of the 2017 arts calendar this is a production not to be missed. CHOREOGRAPHY / FRANCESCO VENTRIGLIA COSTUME & SET DESIGN / JAMES ACHESON MUSIC / SERGEI PROKOFIEV LIGHTING DESIGN / JON BUSWELL DRAMATURG / MARIO MATTIA GIORGETTI CHOREOGRAPHIC ASSISTANT / GILLIAN WHITTINGHAM CONDUCTOR / HAMISH MCKEICH

ISAAC THEATRE ROYAL Friday 25 August 7.30pm Saturday 26 August 1.30pm Saturday 26 August 7.30pm

Choreographer Francesco Ventriglia, dancer Madeleine Graham and Leading Guest Artist Sir Jon Trimmer at Ryman Healthcare’s Anthony Wilding village.

Ryman Healthcare is thrilled to once again be associated with the creation of a major production for the Royal New Zealand Ballet. Ryman Chief Executive Gordon MacLeod said residents and staff were planning a whole lot of Romeo and Juliet-themed events to celebrate the season. “We’re delighted to be able to support the RNZB’s production of Romeo and Juliet. We think our residents – and the rest of New Zealand – are in for a real treat. Our ballet company is a national treasure and it is a pleasure to be able to support the company as they take their performance nationwide.’’ Mr MacLeod said staff at Ryman’s 30 villages had a whole lot of events lined up to make sure everyone gets into the swing of things.

ACCOMPANIED BY THE CSO The RNZB is absolutely thrilled to have the musicians of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra joining us once again for our Christchurch performances. Christchurch born Hamish McKeich will conduct as the CSO brings Prokofiev’s beautiful ballet score to life, filling the Isaac Theatre Royal with the unbeatable sound of live orchestral music.

BOOK AT: ticketek.co.nz / 0800 TICKETEK

3 SHOWS ONLY Adults $48 – $150 Children $25 – $50

The Ryman Healthcare Season of Romeo and Juliet is also touring nationally visiting eight centres in total from 16 August to 24 September.
