New World Bishopdale wins battle to display booze „„ By Bridget Rutherford A SUPERMARKET has won a three-year battle allowing it to display alcohol at the end of aisles and facing other groceries – for now. The Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority has decided to allow New World Bishopdale to display its alcohol where it is, until it renews its off-licence next year. But medical officer of health Alistair Humphrey said the decision will increase shoppers exposure to alcohol resulting in more sales. “More sales of alcohol results in more harm, both directly and indirectly,” he said. Currently, the alcohol is displayed on an outer aisle. At the rear of the supermarket, it faces the dairy chillers, while at the other end, it is opposite the bakery products. Under new rules in the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, supermarkets and grocery stores must restrict the display of alcohol to a single area. The area should be out of the way so customers do not have to walk through it when doing their general shopping. •Turn to page 3

FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK EVERY SPORTS club needs an Alan Jamieson. The 69-year-old has dedicated a lifetime to St Albans cricket but after five decades of administration work he’s decided to call it quits. On page 13, we talk with Jamie about his time at the club and why he’s decided to close his innings. He joined the club from Papanui High in January 1965 and played 521 games, took 1260 wickets and scored 7008 runs until March 2006. That’s not a bad scoreboard in anyone’s reckoning. And Jamie says he won’t be seen much around te club now either and he’ll be likely watching matches from a discreet distance. “I want to give them a chance to take the reins without me hovering around,” he says of the new administrators. - Barry Clarke

News Supermarket wins booze battle „„ By Bridget Rutherford •From page 1 In 2014, New World Bishopdale’s new owner Bond Markets, applied to the district licensing committee for a new off-licence under the new rules. During the hearing, concerns were raised about the alcohol display being in the general shopping area. But owner Nigel Bond said due to space restraints, there were no other options. Alistair The committee Humphrey ruled to restrict the area, so Bond Markets appealed the decision to ARLA, which ruled in its favour. Dr Humphrey then appealed ARLA’s decision to the High Court. Justice David Gendall then quashed ARLA’s ruling. After a Court of Appeal sitting, ARLA reconsidered the appeal against the district licensing committee’s original 2014 decision in July. In a recent decision, ARLA said the supermarket’s offlicence was up for renewal next year.

SUCCESS: New World Bishopdale has won a battle on how it can display alcohol. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER “The Authority does not consider it in the interests of justice that the parties are put to the trouble and expense of having to renew the licence only to have to do so again almost immediately thereafter.” But Dr Humphrey said ARLA declined to take into account limiting exposure to alcohol, instead taking a pragmatic approach. “By placing alcohol directly opposite a section of the

He said the High Court victory meant supermarkets were now recognising their obligations when it comes to alcohol sales and having a separate alcohol area. New World Bishopdale’s alcohol sale area had remained the same while the issue was in

dispute. New World South City was originally fighting a similar battle, but because it is redeveloping on a different location, it withdrew its appeal.

Rangi international club raises money for cyclone hit Tonga Rangi Ruru Girls’ School head of the international club, Amy Chen, writes about raising funds for a school in Tonga devastated by a cyclone and the importance of being a global citizen There are about 60 members in the international club, including both international and domestic students from all over the world. Some now live here permanently, while some are international students with families overseas. Something we learn from our early years here is that we are global citizens; that we are part of a much bigger picture. I like to live my life by treating others how I want to be treated myself. And I think a good way to check yourself now and then is to make sure you are contributing to the lives of others and not making it all about you. We have fun in the international club, too, with occasional movie nights and club outings. Some girls help others settle in

CELEBRATION: Naylor Hillary and his great-grandson Henry Bissland cutting the cake with St Andrew’s rector Christine Leighton during the centenary ceremony.

St Andrew’s oldest alum dies

GLOBAL: International week at Rangi Ruru Girls’ School saw students embracing cultures from all over the world.

if they are new to New Zealand, while others have great energy and drive to keep the club going. Diversity is so important in life and at Rangi Ruru we are proud to celebrate it every day, while having a bit of fun too. International week at Rangi Ruru aimed to enable the girls at our school to become more engaged with different cultures and raise funds for a school in Tonga affected by Cyclone Winston. One of the highlights for me was the international food day,

where girls brought in food from their culture to share with the school and raise funds. St Andrew’s High School in Tonga is still struggling after Cyclone Winston more than a year ago. It was already under pressure as it was short of basic education necessities, such as stationery and school books. Being able to keep the maintenance up at St Andrew’s is almost considered a luxury. The school struggles to find enough money to do what it needs to do. Many of the families are struggling and unemployment is an issue. Because the school is funded from fees, it means there isn’t enough money for even the basics like books and other dayto-day needs We are very fortunate here in New Zealand, and especially being students at Rangi Ruru. We raised $1700 for St Andrew’s.

„„ By Julia Evans ST ANDREW’S oldest collegian has passed away. Naylor Hillary, 102, was part of the centenary celebrations at the college in March where he cut the cake. But it was way back at the beginning of 1929 that Mr Hillary first attended St Andrew’s. He moved into the boarding school from his family home in Opawa. “I have very pleasant memories of my time there,” he told Nor’West News in March. His son, grandsons and now great-grandson have all received their education at St Andrew’s. Rector Christine Leighton said Mr Hillary was a “special person”. “We are privileged to have had some special moments with him over these last few years,” Mrs Leighton said. The Papanui resident was also one of the oldest veterans of the Royal Air Force’s Tempsford 138

HISTORY: Naylor Hillary was a navigator during World War 2.

Special Duties Squadron, which he was a navigator for during World War 2. Until 1989, the existence of the squadron was so classified it had never been acknowledged. At the end of last year, Mr Hillary was awarded the French Legion d’Honneur medal by the French ambassador for his services during WW2. His daughter Pam Bissland said her father didn’t talk much about his life during the war.

Haunting of Sisson Drive „„ By Julia Evans THIS TIME cars are not to blame for congestion around Northlands Shopping Centre – it’s the ghosts. After receiving complaints of congestion from users of the Sisson Drive and Sawyers Arms Rd intersection, the city council investigated and found “ghost calling” is causing traffic build up, city council manager planning and delivery transport Lynette Ellis said. She said feedback from people using the intersection indicated the light phasing was not correct when detecting cyclists. “When the signal operation was analysed ghost calling was evident in the detection logs.” Ms Ellis said finding a cause is difficult as ghost calls can occur for a variety of reasons. “They happen when the induction loops or the thermal cameras incorrectly detect a vehicle, cyclist or pedestrian,” she said. At the Sisson Drive intersection, Ms Ellis said the lights were incorrectly detecting cyclists, which may be caused by electrical interference, software coding or thermal spikes. It unnecessarily changes the phase.

EXERCISE: Commodore Airport Hotel general manager Michael Patterson and David Cartwright try out the new Burnside fitness trail.

Fitness trail open in Burnside „„ By Julia Evans

COMMUTERS: The lights at the intersection of Sisson Drive and Sawyers Arms Rd were found to be ghost calling. PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

She said ghost calling tends to effect new intersections and the lights only went in recently during the Papanui Parallel cycleway upgrades. City council staff and contractors have been working on the issue and said the occurrences of ghost calling have been reduced.

Ms Ellis said she believed the underlying issues causing the ghost calling have been found. “Changes have been made to the software and some changes to the detection loop settings inside the traffic signal controller and this is currently being monitored to ensure issues have been resolved,” Ms Ellis said.

BURNSIDE PARK’S $69,000 fitness trail was opened on Saturday. Said Fendalton-WaimairiHarewood Community Board chairman David Cartwright: “It’s a fantastic asset for the city and particularly this part of the neighbourhood.” The project was a joint effort by the community board, which was approached by the Commodore Airport Hotel with the idea. The hotel then donated $10,000 and the board gave $11,500, plus a similar contribution came from three rotary clubs – Bishopdale-Burnside, Avonhead and Riccarton.

Mr Cartwright said it was a great example of someone coming to the community board with an idea, and the board taking it on and getting involved. The four stations include a situp bench, push-up bars, stairs, a vertical ladder, chin-up bar, gym rings, a shoulder wheel, cross trainer, pull down exerciser, recumbent cycle, skier, leg press, parallel bars, monkey bars and a balance beam. “The exercise equipment is quite general. Kids, adults and those with disabilities can use the gear,” he said. It was all installed in phases, starting two years ago but completed this month. The most expensive equipment was part of the forth station.

Pump house designs out

Students behind arcade games

„„ By Julia Evans FENDALTON residents will have their water back to pre-quake volumes with the installation of a new $2.5 million pump house. A new pump house, with a 500 cu m tank, is now in the planning stage for Jeffreys Reserve on Jeffreys Rd. An architect has drawn up the design which will go out for consultation this month. Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board chairman David Cartwright said he asked city council staff about the costs around further design options. “Staff came back and said it could be as much as $20,000. That’s $20,000 of ratepayers’ money that could be spent on fixing potholes.” He said the board did not want to “over consult” on something that was an essential service. “It is a big beast and its necessary,” Mr Cartwright said. Fendalton city councillor Jamie Gough said from his perspective, it was a great pump house. “Not many pump houses are designed by architects,” he said. Residents will get a chance to give feedback on the design during a community engagement

„„ By Julia Evans COMPUTER programming may seem daunting to most of us but not for the students whose video games are featuring on the giant outdoor arcade system in the central city. Year 12 and 13 students from Burnside and Papanui High Schools have designed games, such as The Last Kiwi, featuring a kiwi with lasers for eyes, and Bug Invasion where players fly The Wizard to the New Brighton Pier to protect it from a bug invasion. These and another five games are at Gap Filler’s Super Street Arcade on Tuam St. They will feature one at a time for three days each. “It’s amazing when they see their games being played and enjoyed by complete strangers,” Gap Filler learning facilitator Sally Airey said. Ms Airy said the games will be running through the school holidays. She said the best few will also get to feature for a week after the holidays finish. Seven teams of students have been designing the games as part of their digital technologies classes. Supported by the Ministry of Education, the programme

meeting this month, city council manager planning and delivery John Moore said. “At the end of the day, it’ll blend in. After a while you walk past telephone or power boxes and generally don’t notice,” Mr Cartwright said. Four bores have already been dug by the city council 100m into the ground to get to the water reservoir below. “The earthquake-damaged water tank, which is not in use now, needs to be replaced . . . Jeffreys Rd pump station will then be able to provide the pre-earthquake flow rates to the network,” Mr Moore said. The land is set to be secured by November, a detailed design will be complete by February and the structure will be finished in 2019.

Game developers CerebralFix, which designed the app Attack of the Cones based on Christchurch and create content for Disney, worked with the students. Ms Airy said CerebralFix has loved working with the younger

generation. “We’re blown away by what the students have achieved, they’re tackling quite complex technical and design challenges and smashing it,” Nadia Thorne, head of studio at CerebralFix said. Ms Thorne said she hopes to run the programme again next year. Check the Super Street Arcade Facebook page to see what game is currently being played.

INVENTIVE: Sophie Hogson, Reed McHugh Cleo McLeod and Alice Hunter spoke to a city council committee about their idea to get more people using the cycleways.

Pokemon on the cycleways POKEMON GO took the world by storm and has now provided the inspiration for a campaign to get people using the city’s cycleways. A group of Selwyn House pupils looked at the app which involved collecting imaginary monsters from locations around the world as a way to increase usage of the paths. As part of a class project on community problem-solving, Alice Hunter, Reed McHugh, Cleo McLeod and Sophie Hogson, used their school’s laser cutter and 3-D printer to create bicycle shaped cut-outs that would be hidden in places along the cycleways. People would have to find and collect photos of the cut-outs, like Pokemon Go characters,

then post them on social media or a website. The pupils said they hope to decorate the cut-outs to encourage people to get out on the cycleways to hunt them down. “This could get families and kids off their couches and onto the cycleways,’’ Alice, 11, told the city council’s infrastructure, transport and environment committee. Reed, 11, said they hoped to involve other schools in the project by inviting them to decorate the cut-outs. “Safety will be a major factor in choosing where these bikes are placed because we don’t want to cause crashes or traffic jams,’’ she said. Cleo, 12, said social media

could be used to promote the cycle hunt and the cycleways. “The project could tie in with social media to get more people involved. Once people find a bike they can take a picture next to it and post it on social media using the hashtag,’’ she said. “A website could be created that pulls all the hashtag posts from Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. It could also have a downloadable and printable map of the bikes’ locations.” The girls’ ideas were well received by the committee. “The committee is very impressed and excited by this idea and we will use the appropriate channels to pick this up,’’ committee chairwoman and city councillor Pauline Cotter said.

CRASH: After 19 accidents over a six year period, Chaneys Corner is now being upgraded. ​

Bid to make corner safe „„ By Julia Evans AFTER 19 crashes over a sixyear period, Chaneys Corner is about to be upgraded. City council staff said safety improvements at the corner of Main North, Marshland and Spencerville Rds are critical. “As part of this work, we will create a left hand turning slip lane for motorists travelling north on Marshland Rd who want to turn left to access the Northern Motorway,” staff said. There has been uncertainty from vehicles coming off Main North Rd, staff said. So the left hand slip will allow “clear separation” from motorists travelling straight ahead - avoiding oncoming traffic altogether. “The Main North Rd give way will be changed to a stop sign to make it consistent with the Spencerville Rd approach and reduce confusion regarding priorities.” There will also be updated warning signs that say “slow down” installed on Marshland

Rd as an early advisory to motorists. The city council investigated the possibility of putting traffic lights or a roundabout at the intersection. However, staff said traffic is “anticipated to reduce drastically” with the completion of the Northern Arterial. These options would also cause significant delays to vehicles on Marshland Rd, and staff said the pattern of accidents would change and could increase in severity. “A roundabout is not suitable for this location due to the unbalanced number of vehicles at the four approaches to this intersection.” The city council has opened the proposal up for feedback from the public until October 27, which can be given on its website. All feedback will be considered before a staff recommendation goes to the Papanui-Innes Community Board in February. If approved, the project will begin in the middle of next year.

BACK TO FORWARD: Former St Andrew’s College player Shilo Klein moved from second-five to hooker and has been selected in the New Zealand Schools side.

„„ By Andrew King SPEED AND power are two attributes needed in the modern-day hooker. But 18-year-old Shilo Klein has something else too: He’s a natural midfielder. The St Andrew’s College student, who moved from second-five to hooker last year, was one of 25 named in the New Zealand Schools side to play three games against two Australian and a Fijian team in Sydney. He didn’t play in the 54-7 demolition of the Fijian Schools side on Thursday. Christ’s College first XV captain and centre Isaiah Punivai was also named in the New Zealand Schools side. Klein was also included in the Crusaders Academy for next year and is looking forward to making a career out of rugby. He weighs in at 105kg and is 180cm. He’s well-suited to the forward pack, first XV cocoach Mike Johnston said. “The skills he learnt at second-five has helped out as a hooker. He has developed some really good passing skills and lines to run out in those wider channels,” he said.

“We thought he would be a good fit in that position and that has been proved correct with his selection in the New Zealand Schools side.” Klein, who was born in Sacramento, California, said it was a no-brainer to move into the forward pack. “I had a lot of feedback that this position would suit my style of play. I played like a forward in the backline, I ran straight and looked for good physical go-forward,” he said. It took him a few attempts to feel comfortable in the middle of a scrum, but now he loves it. “In my first scrum, I felt claustrophobic, but I got used to it,” he said. Klein captained St Andrew’s this year, leading them to fifth in the UC Championship and third in the co-ed cup in the New Zealand Barbarians first XV championship. He moved to Christchurch when he was three with his parents, Howard and Wendy. “I play the sport in one way or another all year round, as I play touch and sevens also. I really want to play professionally some day,” he said. •More sport, pages 13-15

Jamieson pulls up stumps at St Albans „„ By Andrew King ST ALBANS Cricket Club’s season will begin this weekend. After 52 years as a club member – 44 of those as president and chairman – Alan Jamieson, 69, has pulled has pulled stumps on his administration career to allow a new crop of management to take it into the future. He may not be at the ground for the opening game – but you

SPORTS might see him watching the action from afar. After 52 years, 44 as president and chairman, the Avonhead man has pulled stumps on his administration career to allow a new crop of management to take it into the future. “I want to give them a chance

to take the reins without me hovering around,” he said. On August 1, Graham Curgenven took over as president and Pierre Flavell as chairman. Jamieson oversaw the merger between the St Albans Women’s Cricket Club and men’s club in 1977, one of the first clubs to do

so in the city, saw the coming and going of a number of professional players at the club and watched Chris Harris, Chris Martin and Mark Priest go on to play for New Zealand. He said he can’t take credit for Martin’s batting style, which is famous around cricket grounds both here and abroad. “He was a number 11 the day he joined the club from Christchurch Boys’,” he laughed. Jamieson joined the club from

Papanui High in January 1965 and played 521 games, took 1260 wickets and scored 7008 runs until March 2006. Jamieson played “on the front foot” both on and off the pitch resulting in a few run-ins with cricket bosses. “Lee Germon and I have had some fierce conversations over the years, I didn’t win too many of those,” he said with a chuckle. •Turn to page 14

Pulling up stumps after 52 years •From page 13 He said the club had become a bit “nomadic” after the 2014 redevelopment of Hagley Oval, but the overall end result was a fantastic international cricket ground. Jamieson said the lure of the game will be hard to stay away from, but as he did after finishing his playing days, he will watch from a distance. “I used to watch from afar after I finished playing, behind trees and in cars, because, you know how it is. If you are hanging around, soon you are called up to fill in then your back playing,” he said. The main thing he will miss is the communication with all the players, officials, coaches and management of the club, he said. “I have noticed since I have been away the communication has stopped. It remains to be seen if the winter month quietness will reflect the summer months,” he said. One of the hardest and best moments in his long tenure share a common date: January 30, 2009. The clubrooms, in Hagley Oval, suffered an arson attack at about 7am, burning it to the ground. Jamieson said it was the worst moment of his time at the club standing on the field watching his beloved clubrooms billow smoke and collapse in the inferno. “But rebuilding it brought the club together. The club rallied and it made it stronger,” he said. Now retired, Jamieson said he has time to do something else rather than cricket.

Top UC Championship season Aranui’s Tahu Kaa-Goodwillie has been selected in the under-18 Maori side after a solid season with UC Championship winning Christchurch Boys’ High School. He talks to Andrew King about almost heading to Auckland after being spotted at an intermediate sevens tournament Tahu Kaa-Goodwillie has been playing the sport he loves since age four and the hard work has paid off with his inclusion in the under-18 Maori side. The 17-year-old, whose iwi is both Ngati Porou and Ngai Tahu, was a standout performer in this year’s UC Championship at second-five with a number of line breaks and a huge defensive workload cementing his spot in the starting Christchurch Boys’ High School side and earning him a call-up for higher honours. But he could have been busting tackles in Auckland. His talent was identified when he was 12 by talent scouts from a couple of Auckland schools at the 2012 AIMS Games in Tauranga,

Kaa-Goodwillie was planning on heading to CBHS, but the offer from Auckland gave him another option to consider. A meeting with CBHS headmaster Nic Hill, school sports co-ordinator Steven Dodds and Mauger outlined that he could have the best of

both worlds, great education and a chance to play in a wellrespected rugby team. “Aaron told him you don’t need to be in Auckland to be an All Black. But we said it would not just be rugby, school work came first,” Mr Hill said. Kaa-Goodwillie said the decision to stay in Canterbury was so he could be close to family, but the Auckland offer was hard to turn down.

He stayed with his uncle Stewart Kaa for two years on Rata St, Fendalton, less than 1km from CBHS, so he was in the zone to attend the high school before moving back home with his mother Tania Kaa and father Carlin Goodwillie in Parklands. His form this year earned him selection in the Crusaders Junior Knights development camp held at St Andrew’s College in July before being selected in the Junior Knights who lost 25-10 in a curtainraiser match against the under-18 Hurricanes side. He has been involved in Metro representative rugby since age 13. He trialled and missed out on the New Zealand Schools team this year but said making the Maori team is a fantastic stepping stone for him as it has always been his dream to play rugby professionally. “With the Maori team, we get to play more games compared to the New Zealand Schools side. So that has been a bit of blessing in disguise,” he said. Kaa-Goodwillie played for the Linwood Rugby Club until age 11, before playing for the Christchurch Football Club until high school. He now plays for CBHS’s first XV. “The move to Christchurch Football Club was to develop me as a player. I will always have a

The Christchurch club was formed in 1863 and is the oldest club in the country, producing 32 All Blacks including Richie McCaw. CBHS first XV coach Danny Porte said Kaa-Goodwillie is an impressive ball-runner. “He is a very physical when carrying the ball into contact and is a direct physical threat to the defensive line,” he said. “He has great footwork and

great leg drive and is very professional about the way he goes about things on and off the field.” He was in the gym last week when the call came through that he had been included in the Maori side. “It hasn’t really soaked in yet, but for me, it was a satisfying end to the season and a great reward for all hard work that I had put in over the year,” he said.

“A local team for local people”

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.

In fact many have found it to increase fat loss by 2 to 3 times greater than normal. T.V. Dr. Oz has said it is the most effective & fastest working natural supplement to support weight loss. Even without exercise & diet changes many have found it beneficial, although even better & quicker results are often obtained with extra exercise & an improved diet. The extract of this amazing fruit is called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) or CitriMax. Research has shown HCA to help suppress the appetite, reduce cravings, feel fuller for longer, increase energy levels, help prevent fat from being made & stored in the body, increase lean muscle mass, increase serotonin levels in the brain that help control mood & sleep (great for emotional eaters), improve cholesterol levels that may help reduce the chances of strokes & cardiovascular disease, help prevent sugar spikes as well as other health benefits. It is considered a very safe supplement (although check first if you are on medication) as it has been used for centuries as a flavouring agent & digestive aid. To obtain reliable results it is important

to take a product that contains a standardized extract of 60% HCA & also take the recommended amount as used in the clinical research. Some supplements also contain ChromeMate, a well-researched form of niacin-bound chromium to help improve the results even more. Further information & advice is available in store at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. Call in & talk to our naturopath & medical herbalist or one of our helpful natural health advisers. We are Always Happy to Help!

Need more vitality? The nutrient balance of the body is critical for optimum aging. Research has shown the body performs much better if all the required nutrients are available in sufficient quantities. The problem is it is very hard to obtain enough if any of some of these nutrients from a normal diet. Boron is one of the many nutrients with amazing benefits that is lacking in our diet.

Take a trip with Third Aged Tours

Aspire Canterbury is a not-for-profit community-focused organisation committed to meeting the needs of older persons with mobility issues and disabled persons. Their aim is to assist people in making informed decisions about accessing services or choosing products that will assist them in their daily lives. They have taken their services on the road and out into communities, meeting people in their environments to make daily living easier. Aspire Mobile is a response to the need to reconnect, giving disabled people easier access to services and introducing them to new products which can make their lives more enjoyable and provide them with a sense of inclusion in the wider community. They will show you how to choose a walker or walking stick that is the correct height, provide information about both their services and other resources available

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

HEALTH & BEAUTY

When Ignite Fitness was set up at the Papanui Club in early 2016, the challenge was to create an exercise atmosphere that appealed to a diverse market. One of the areas identified was the involvement of family members and groups, manager of the fitness centre Eddie Kerrigan says. “We must have done something right as we now have numbers of families who have joined up. The environment at Ignite Fitness is a safe, non-threatening one in which parents can be confident that all their family members will be looked after in a professional and caring manner.” There are three families of four, four family groups of three, and around 25 family groups of two currently signed up, Eddie says. Two of those families are the Smith family and the Mackintosh family, and Eddie spoke to them about why they joined Ignite Fitness, and what they got out of it. There were a variety of reasons for joining. These included improving fitness, losing weight, keeping joints and limbs moving, stalling the effects of ageing and family bonding. The handy location of the gym was also an important factor, they said. Both families said they went to the gym two to four times a week, depending on

their school and work schedules. Asked what activities they enjoyed most, in order of popularity they said these were resistance training, cardio exercise and circuit classes, though they liked taking part in all of the activities and exercises. Depending on the activity, they sometimes competed with one another to see who could achieve the most, and both sets of parents tried to be an inspiration for their families. Both families said they had gained a number of health benefits since starting at Ignite Fitness. Strength and fitness were two key beneflts, but there was also pain management and all-over physical stability. In addition to the physical benefits, they enjoyed socialising with other gym members, and their self-esteem improved. “We are delighted that families like the Smiths and the Mackintoshes get so much enjoyment from coming to our gym, and new families and groups are always more than welcome to join,” Eddie says. Ignite Fitness is open 5.30am-9.30pm Monday to Friday and 5.30am-6.30pm weekends and public holidays. To find out more information about Ignite Fitness phone 359-9586, ext. 706 or email gym@papanuiclub.co.nz
