Help fades for rest home residents battling big trucks „„ By Emily O’Connell LADY WIGRAM Retirement Home residents trying to stop trucks rolling through their quiet neighbourhood are unlikely to get the support of the city council. Halswell Ward city councillor Anne Galloway has told Western News and residents that a bylaw is not likely to solve the problem. Residents have been lobbying since April when they met with Cr Galloway and Wigram MP Megan Woods asking Anne for a bylaw to Galloway stop trucks being allowed to drive through Lodestar Ave. It is a short cut to work sites in the area and in Selwyn. Their campaign made international headlines recently when Lady Wigram owner John Tooby confronted four residents who had put a sign on the rest home’s fence pleading for truck drivers to use another route. Mr Tooby abused and swore at them and demanded they take the sign down. The tirade was recorded by a Star journalist who

was photographing the residents when Mr Tooby arrived. The city council is due to bring in the city-wide Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 by the end of the year which will allow restrictions

to be placed on streets. It will include allowing for the banning of vehicles from being parked on the road if they’re advertised for sale, vehicles from parking on berms, and stopping

heavy vehicles on certain streets. But Cr Galloway doubts whether the bylaw will apply to Lodestar Ave. She says speed is the main issue, not heavy trucks.

Tuesday October 31 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

YOU HAVE to sympathise with Lady Wigram Retirement Village residents in their bid to stop trucks using Lodestar Ave. They’ve just lost who thought was an ally in city councillor Anne Galloway (see page 1). Our photo is the tip of the iceberg of what is happening there. It shows what people living on Lodestar Ave have to put up with, day in and day out. The trucks are taking a short cut through this residential street and the authorities don’t seem to care. Residents went to Galloway and Wigram MP Megan Woods for help in April. But Galloway says a city-wide bylaw probably won’t work in Lodestar Ave. She’s got to be joking! So it looks like it is time for new Government MP Megan Woods to step up. – Barry Clarke

Denton descendant speaks out „„ By Emily O’Connell STANLEY DENTON’S grandson is taking a stand for Denton Park. The city council wants to use the park for a new $35.7 million pool, library and service centre. Ben Frampton talked to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board about the park’s history last week. “Based on what I’ve heard so far, I would prefer it to remain as a reserve and sports ground, and the other proposal be done somewhere else,” he said. Mr Frampton said he doesn’t know when his grandfather Stanley Denton bought the land but he knows he was the owner in 1952. He said his grandfather was going to use it for his tannery business but later found a spot which was better suited. Mr Denton’s neighbour, Horrie Wilson, was part of the Paparua County Council, and encourgaed him to gift the land. He then gave the land to the council in 1954 as a recreation reserve for Hornby residents. Later, the council requested to buy a piece of land from Mr

In Brief NEW ROAD NAMED The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board approved a road name in Waterloo Business Park at their meeting last week. The road will be named Synergy Lane. Other suggested names included Strategy Lane and Venture Lane.

HERTIAGE: Grandson of Stanley Denton, Ben Frampton wants to see the park stay. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​ Denton which was also on Main South Rd. Mr Denton sold it to the council for 1000 pounds – which was a third of the estimated value at the time. Mr Frampton said it’s hard to know what his grandfather would have wanted but he certainly wouldn’t want the cricket and rugby club to miss out. The Hornby Rugby Football Club’s lease is supposed to run

until July 30 2039. Following public consultation, Kyle Park was the most preferred option. It was then eiliminated due to the cost of the remediation work. Mr Frampton said the city council’s consultation process was inadequate. He said to make it fair the city council should resurvey with the available options. Community board chairman

Mike Mora said the reserve still has to be reclassified later this year. “It will be publicly notified and people will have the opportunity to appear and make submissions either for or against it,” he said. Mr Mora said the issue will go to the panel, the panel will make a recommendation and then the Minister of Parks and Recreation will sign it off.

WORKING BEE CLEAN-UP Volunteers helped remove creepers from the railway walkway between Brockworth Pl and Riccarton Rd. There is still more work to be done which requires more technical equipment. Once the wall is clear, Riccarton artist Damian Holt is going to paint some more murals. He painted some murals for the walkway four years ago. HALSWELL TRAFFIC ISSUES The Halswell Residents’ Association has requested the HalswellHornby-Riccarton and SpreydonCashmere community boards discuss how to get people from Halswell and Selwyn into central Christchurch. HRA secretary David Hawke wants to make sure plans don’t have a negative impact on the Addington community. Mr Hawke said there isn’t a sole solution. He said widening roads won’t help if buses are full.

Your Local Views Create positive memories Oak Development Trust manager Carol Renouf talks about memories and how they’re created in community Memories, our lives are a museum of memories, positive and negative that shape and sustain us as people. I told my nine-year-old granddaughter I had been asked to write an article on something I am passionate about. ‘Just what are you passionate about,’ was her response. I asked her what she thought. She replied ‘us.’ I smiled, yes, she was right.

I am passionate about my family. I want to build positive memories so together we can recall ‘remember when we did that’. I collected my granddaughter from Ilam Primary School one Friday, aware I was to share tea with this family. On discussing our plans, she told me that in her Ilam Passport, full of ideas for the holidays was the suggested activity of having fish ’n’ chips at the beach. What a great idea. We had

a fun evening at Sumner playing in the rock pools. A memory had been created. Memories are built when traditions become part of life. An Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday morning or making pancakes each Saturday for breakfast. Memories are planted through the activities we engage in as part of our communities. In Riccarton we have just had ‘Our Riccarton, Our community lets have fun’ Community Day. It’s now part of the fabric of our community, a tradition where each year families enjoy a day out together experiencing a lot of different activities, food and entertainment. Creating memories do not just happen. Memories need to be planned, intentionally created as part of our lives. I know I have also allowed negative memories to be placed in that museum for my family. A harsh word said in anger or a nasty response a to comment. ‘I’m sorry’ are redeeming words in those situations. My desire is to continue to build a legacy of positive memories for my family and the communities I live and work in. What about you? •The trust is based in Riccarton.

Rest home’s truck battle •From page 1 “I doubt the new bylaw will be of any use. It seems that speed is the issue and the recommendation is for police to get more involved in monitoring this,” Cr Galloway said. The traffic and speed count report found an average of 1943 vehicles per day travelled on the road – which is a high volume for a local road. Data also indicated about 300 vehicles per day travelled at or above 60km/h. But rest home residents are disappointed. “I was hoping the traffic people, who know much more about this than I do, could sort it out but it doesn’t seem that way,” one told Western News. He has asked for anonymity because of the fallout from other residents over the Tooby outburst. He said trucks rumble past as early as 4.30am, waking them up and causing things to shake. The report suggested speed humps might help. But the resident said that would only cause more noise when the trucks went over them.

bourhood. “We don’t want elderly folk to feel stressed if they hear people racing outside their residence,” she said. Wigram MP Megan Woods said she will have to look at the report and speak to Cr Galloway about what they can do. She said it’s a real issue because unlike most residential streets, the residents are generally home during the working day. City council traffic engineer Edwin Tiong will ask police to patrol the area more regularly. Mr Tiong will also conduct another traffic count next year and follow-up with the village management to identify any specific day or time of the week when these issues are more prevalent. •Letters, page 7

Four generations of Villa Maria girls „„ By Emily O’Connell WHEN GABRIELLA Burns puts on her Villa Maria College uniform each morning, she is doing exactly what her greatgrandmother did nearly 100 years ago. Gabriella is a year 12 student at Villa, and has followed in the footsteps of her great-grandmother Joan, her grandmother Mary and her mother Sarah. Four generations of proud Villa women. It was February 1918 when Joan Mullins started at the newly established Villa Maria College. In those days, Villa was considered “out in the country” and many girls boarded at the school, coming from all over the South Island. In Mrs Mullins’ day, Villa was a small school, started by the Sisters of Mercy to educate girls from all walks of life. The school’s grounds centred about the two-storey convent building, which was built by the former land owner in 1899 and named Kia Toa. Mrs Mullins daughter Mary O’Brien was next to head to Villa, starting after World War 2 in 1946, and graduating in 1953. Mrs O’Brien remembers the pride in being labelled one of the “Villa girls” and treasures

Council initiates uni parking review „„ By Julia Evans PARKING restrictions around Canterbury University are set to tighten. On-street parking through Fendalton and Ilam is being audited by the city council. The 1996 city council introduced a comprehensive parking plan named The University Parking Plan, but staff said the demand for parks has increased beyond that. In response the city council has initiated a review and is seeking community feedback. The first leg of the audit would see tighter restrictions on the Fendalton and Ilam streets, Hamilton Ave, Lothian St, Ilam Rd, Tuirau Pl, Swanleigh Pl, Ryeland Ave and Braithwaite St. These areas are are currently P120 between 9am and 5pm from March to November – the city council is proposing this be changed to P120 between 9am and 5pm year round. Residents have expressed concerns about the number of vehicles parking on their streets. The public can give feedback on the proposal through the city council’s website.

Chocolate factory dream a reality „„ By Jono Edwards, WHEN SAVANNA Leigh turned 16 in June she tore the packaging off a chocolate block to find a shimmering golden ticket. She knew exactly what that meant. “Charlie Bucket, I’m going to be him,” the Halswell girl said when she realised her dream of re-creating Charlie and the Chocolate Factory through a tour of Cadbury World in Dunedin. Savanna, who has Down’s syndrome, said she watched both film versions of the Roald Dahl classic “lots and lots.’’ She travelled to Dunedin for the tour with her parents, two siblings, uncle and grandmother. The night before visiting the factory, she stuck the ticket above her bed in anticipation. “I’m so excited, I just can’t believe it,’’ she said before entering the building. The chocolate waterfall from the films was something she was especially keen to see. Mother Sue Leigh said she had thought about taking Savanna to the factory for some time. “She always talks about it. I

guess the closing of the factory gave us that push.’’ Savanna’s parents then slipped the ticket in a block of chocolate for her to find.

Her fascination with that world began when she was about eight-years-old, Mrs Leigh said. “Every day she must have music around her. She loves to sing. I think she loves the idea of walking into a factory and being able to explore things.’’ Savanna “loved it’’ and, as the family left the tour, she asked

when she could come back, Mrs Leigh said. Mrs Leigh said when Savanna returned to Riccarton High School after her trip, she was showing off to everyone. The family wanted to thank the staff, who gave the family a private tour and a free lunch. – Otago Daily Times

Readers react on Star.Kiwi Rise Up Christchurch’s Facebook page to prominent Lady Wigram Retirement Village owner and businessman, John Tooby, apologising after he verbally abused his elderly tenants. The tenants had placed a sign on their fence asking truck drivers to stop using their road due to the noise and rattle they cause Kaye Hills - And so he should. What absolutely disgraceful behaviour from someone in his position. Definitely a retirement village to stay clear of. Lyn Morris - A man who is running a place like that needs to be more user friendly to his clients. Time for the tosser to get another job as this one way too hard for him to handle. Melissa Blair Herrick Really! Because he has to or because he wants too. Should never ever have happened. A lot like trying to fix a plate after it’s broken. Avaleigh Nathan - Will spread the word to not buy one of his retirement homes. It’s him who should get a bloody life. Shows no respect at all.

Lisa Carter – If I had a family member in there I would be removing them, sorry but how long will it be, before the next outburst from him. Not good enough should have known better in the first place. Stephanie Hagerty - The only reason he is apologising is because he’s been caught been nasty. Susan Holton - Only doing this because he was caught out by someone taping the conversation well done . . . I was getting ready to protest outside this place so our older people are treated with respect. You have to remember in these places there are a lot of residents that are unable to speak for themselves making them very vulnerable to the managers and staff that look after these facilities. If the owner feels he can get away with this sort of abuse towards people that can complain and stick up for themselves imagine what him and his staff can do behind closed doors to those older people that cant. After all they are only following his example.

Lynn Mortlock - It’s elder abuse . . . he had no option but to do it . . . us on the other hand, have oodles of options so we can steer clear of any retirement homes that he owns. Helen Young - What a disgusting man he is. Everyone is entitled to object to things they are not happy about like these older people have done. And good on them for doing so. There is no way he should be treating these people like this and he is the one who needs to grow up and treat people in a better way. Pat Dooley - And residents need to acknowledge that just because they have retired NZ

Rob White - Why are all the trucks using a residential street not even designed for their weight anyway. Phyllis Aberbart - It should’ve never been said in the first place. Joanne Bright - Wouldn’t want to try talking to my parents like that. Corinne Rooney – What a bully. An apology isn’t much really because it’s not going to help him change his behaviour. Undertaking communication and self-regulation training is also required, eg. a non-violent communication course.

Carolyn Weusten – I wouldn’t work for him. Beverley Letchford - What has been said, cannot be unsaid. Vivienne Sinclair-Phillips - What a money hungry pig. Chrissi Tukaki - Those people pay for his fancy lifestyle. Kevin Garty - He’s doing it because he was recorded, about as genuine as a plastic turd. Janice Belgrave - My guess is because he has been told to. Zane McKinnon - He actually wasnt as bad as he was made out. Not perfect by any means but he won’t be a successful owner since the 70s by being “potty mouthed.” Reacting like that for no reason at all is not normal behaviour.

China trip a treat for Kirkwood pupils FIVE Kirkwood intermediate School pupils are returning from China tomorrow. The pupils flew to Chengdu last Friday as part of a cultural trip with their school. They spent a few days with their home-stays, attending their sister school, China Chengdu Bilingual Experimental School, and learning local arts including brush writing, stitch work and making traditional dumplings. Pupils Kendall and Grace said they were looking forward to visiting a panda park and performing kapa haka to 2000 students. They also spent four days in Shanghai, where they went up the Shanghai tower. “This trip is really going to open up the world for us and we look forward to sharing lots of photos and amazing memories

SCHOOLS of China with everyone at Kirkwood Intermediate School,” Kendall and Grace said. Principal Phil Tappenden said the trip is a great way to help pupils develop a global perspective. “This trip will expose the pupils to different worldviews, and ways of thinking and looking at things, helping us become more outward looking and accepting of other cultures,” he said. The pupils received funding from Education New Zealand for the trip. Only 10 schools across New Zealand received this assistance, with Kirkwood Intermediate being the only school in the South Island.

TRIP: Kirkwood Intermediate School pupils Emma Parke (left), Grace Thomson, Kendall Jones, Ashton Stocker and Dante Kalotapu with other pupils from their sister school in China.

VISITING: Touring their sister school, China Chengdu Bilingual Experimental School, with other pupils.

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.” She says now is an ideal time to start fungal nail treatment with Clearanail, so nails will be looking healthy again when the warm, sandalwearing 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

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 three 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.

News Roar of vintage bikes on the beach „„ By Sophie Cornish THE SOUND of vintage motorcycles revving will boom around New Brighton beach on Saturday. New Brighton was one of only of a handful of beaches in New Zealand used for organised racing during the early 1900s. But on Saturday they won’t be racing – the bikes will travel along the beach in a parade. Manufacturers would send their motorcycles to Christchurch to be raced and trialled on the beach. The youngest bike in the show will be a 1939 350cc Triumph. The fifth annual Smash Palace Bike Show will focus on the late Geoff Hockley, a former bike enthusiast and author. Mr Hockley was a New

Brighton identity and a founding member of the Pioneer Motorcycle Club. In the 1960s, Mr Hockley wrote A Tribute to A Gentleman about the history of the club. The event will be linked to the book and Mr Hockley’s son Tony will attend the event. Tony, 82, will be the judge of the ‘Gentleman’s Tribute’ on the day, an award for who he believes is the standout bike and rider on the day. “I’ve known for a wee while it’s been coming up and I think it’s a wonderful idea because it’s the sort of thing my dad would have always been involved in. I’ve always lived in Brighton and I think it’s a really good thing for the area,” he said. Event organiser Anna May said previous motorcycle shows in

New Brighton have been a success. However, this is the first year the bikes will ride on the beach. “It’s sort of rekindled New Brighton’s love for motorbikes and the history,” said Ms May. Twenty bikes will be paraded on the day, two at a time. The races will begin in front of the New Brighton Surf Life Saving Club and continue for 400m around the legs of the pier and back toward the surf club. Ms May wants the focus to be on the demonstration, not racing. “These bikes are not exceptionally fast, but they will be spectacular.” “Its not going to be a big fast drag racing thing, we are very careful to point out this isn’t a race, it’s a demonstration . . . we are demonstrating the way it use to be,” said Ms May.

PROUD SON: Tony Hockley will attend the Smash Palace Bike Show at New Brighton beach on Saturday, which will honour his late father Geoff Hockley a former bike enthusiast.

Doggone good performance at champs „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding LONG HOURS of training two dogs to leap, weave and race through challenging obstacle courses has paid off for Jess Tansey. The Rangi Ruru Girls’ School student walked away as one of the most successful dog handlers at the Black Hawk New Zealand Dog Agility Championships. The national competition was held in Kihikihi, Waikato. More than 600 dogs engaged in about 6000 individual runs. Jess’ siberian husky-border collie cross Rapid was named medium dog of the show after winning four runs, a second place, third and fifth in the novice section of the competition.  Rapid was not Jess’ only dog to have its day, with her threeyear-old german shepherd border collie cross Swag finishing with three thirds, a fourth and a seventh in the top class category. The competition required handlers to guide their dogs through varied obstacle courses in the fastest time possible, without making mistakes.  The obstacles included tunnels, ramps and jumpers.  Jess said it was the best

LEAP: Jess Tansey’s dog Swag makes a high jump at the championships.

results she and her dogs had achieved. The 17-year-old has been working with dogs for as long she could remember, first starting out running her parent’s dogs around courses before she

properly learnt to train dogs when she was about eight. She has been based Selwyn Dog Training Club for two years and has trained eight dogs so far.  She said the training takes a lot of patience and it all comes down

to working out what motivates a dog. Jess said her two dogs’ personalities are the complete opposites. Swag is sweet, cuddly and more trustworthy on the obstacle

course where as Rapid is fast, crazy and more unpredictable. “I have to get my mum voice out,” she said. She has found the most difficult trick to teach her dogs were weaving poles.  As well as taking on national competitions, Jess spends her time helping train beginner classes.  “Without us there would be no sport really because we have got to get the younger generation in on it because that will be who is in sport in a couple of years time,” she said.  As for the rest of the year, Jess will compete in two more upcoming in Hawkes Bay and Christchurch where she will judge for the first time.

FOCUS ON HEALTH Modern diet leads to illness! It’s not what you eat but what you absorb Two Australian Naturopaths Stephen and Shane noticed at the end of the 20th century more and more of their patients were experiencing gut, bowel and digestive issues that were often leading to more serious chronic health conditions. Being Naturopaths they wanted to find what was going wrong and began extensive research. What they found was although their clients were generally eating good food they were not obtaining all the nutrients required for good health from this food. Further research showed one of the main problems was the digestive system, “it’s not what you eat but what you absorb.” Another well-known problem is the soils the crops are grown in have been depleted of many trace elements and other nutrients that are known to be essential for good health and therefore the crops and food are also depleted. If we do not obtain all the nutrients we require the body will compensate to some degree but a lack of too many nutrients will eventually lead to health issues. Based on this they developed VITAL GREENS, a nutrient dense powdered formula that provides superior absorption as well as comprehensive nutrition. They decided on a powdered formula that could be made

as a great tasting drink because liquid nutrition is the easiest way for the body to absorb nutrients especially if digestive issues are present. The formula provides 76 vital ingredients that work together in synergy optimising each other’s absorption and benefits. Vital Greens contains a carefully balanced blend of nutritionally rich greens, vegetables, fruits, minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids, plant and herbal extracts, superfoods, powerful antioxidants, probiotics, essential amino acids, digestive enzymes, fibre plus a uniquely alkalising pea protein. It provides superior nutrition to a multivitamin and anyone will benefit from it. It is designed to provide all the nutrients the body requires for good health. It is also ideal for those in poor health, those recovering from injury or sickness, children, athletes, poor eaters and the elderly. It is also suitable for people with dietary restrictions and is gluten, wheat and dairy free. Vital Greens will help remove toxic waste from the body while supporting all organs. You’ll often notice more energy and endurance, better sleep, a more positive mood, skin problems improving, less sickness, improved eyesight and overall better more optimum health. Further information and how to obtain the maximum benefits from Vital Greens as well as tastings is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

Anxious Kids What can you do? We are all aware that anxiety in our children has risen considerably over the last 7 years, the forces that rattled our city have continued to rattle its citizens and this has impacted on how our children exist and respond in their day to day lives. Of course this is not the only contributor and it must be remembered that any mental health problem is not a clear cut issue. However parents, teachers, doctors and other people closely working with our children and young adults have noticed a change in behaviour. They are seeing things such as increased irritability, aggression, separation anxiety, sleep disturbances and moodiness. The normal response of anxiety to a future challenging event has become an out of proportion reaction to normal daily events and this is where the problem lies. So what natural options are there to help support children’s mental health? Probiotics - Promote healthy balance of chemicals in our brain The connection between the brain and the gut is key to understanding and maintaining good mental health. You need a well balanced microbiome (gut flora), with an abundance of good bacteria to ensure the creation and regulation of neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that send messages to and around our brain. Serotonin is one of these neurotransmitters - low levels are associated with anxiety and other problems such as depression. It is important to note

How To SupporT ANXIouS KIDS & ANXIouS ADuLTS! The gut has a lot to do with how we feel & how our brain functions. If it is out of balance we can feel moody, depressed, anxious, nervous & more. The right probiotic supplements help restore gut balance. Quality essential fatty acids are one of our biggest deficiencies. They have a dramatic effect on brain function. Parents often notice children are less moody,

concentration & learning improves & they are calmer with EFA supplementation. Suntheanine is produced by a patented fermentation process to mimic the L-Theanine found in green tea. It is considered extremely safe & has been found highly beneficial in clinical studies for stress, anxiety, a positive mood, concentration, sleep, & much more.

ARE YOU READY TO DOWNSIZE?

that the majority of serotonin is actually made in our gut! Fish oils - Reduce cellular inflammation Fish oils are a source of Omega 3 fatty acids, unless we eat at least 3 - 4 meals of oily fish per week we generally aren't getting enough of this essential fatty acid (EFA). The result is an imbalance between this antiinflammatory EFA and the inflammatory EFA omega 6 (found in most animal products, cereals, vegetable oils). Low levels of omega 3 (particularly DHA) in the brain can result in increased inflammation and the disruption of signaling between nerves, this contributes to conditions such as anxiety. Taking a supplement that also includes vitamin D will help increase the absorption of the EFA’s. B Vitamins & Magnesium - correct nutritional deficiency Low levels of nutrients such as B vitamins and magnesium have been linked to anxiety and other mental health conditions. When we are under stress our bodies use more of these nutrients and our requirement is higher. B vitamins are necessary for the production and release of neurotransmitters, while magnesium helps to regulate the nervous system. Magnesium helps to relax, calm and protect the cardiovascular system which can be put under extra stress when suffering from anxiety. Theanine - promote a calm but alert state of mind Another really helpful nutrient is L-theanine, this is an amino acid found in green tea. The action of theanine is to relax without sedation - basically it encourages an alert but relaxed state of mind and in doing so is very effective at reducing anxiety. There are also other remedies such as Bach flower remedies, essential oils and herbs that can make a big difference in your child’s mental health. Herbal teas such as Passionflower, Chamomile, Lemon Balm and Licorice are all helpful to encourage a feeling of calm. Bach flowers can be individually prescribed to suit the individual child’s emotional personality, they are very effective in helping to reduce feelings of fear, loneliness, fatigue, hopelessness, restlessness and sadness. Our Herbalist Nadine, is available to prescribe Bach flower remedies as well as herbal formulas and give advice on which nutrients are the most suitable. She is available for private consultations on Tuesday and Thursday 10-2pm and within the store at other times.

Health food business built on family ties Established in 1988, the Christchurchbased New Zealand Health Food Company is a real family affair. For founder Rob Haines, the aim was to supply indigenous New Zealand natural products to national and international manufacturers. The success of these products soon led to the development of the company’s own retail brands, and right from the start Rob’s mother Joan played an active role in the business, as a mentor and assisting with operations, right up till when she retired at the age of 82. Rob’s daughter Ellie is part of the team as the web and social media administrator for the company, while his son Sam is the sales manager. Selina, Rob’s other daughter, has also joined the team out in production, alongside her husband Doug, who is the operations manager. All are learning all the aspects of the company and continuing what they hope is a long family tradition. The strong family bonds and shared values are reflected in the workplace, with their skilled staff enjoying a happy, safe working environment that is flexible and

practical, with opportunities provided for training and development. Sustainability and environmental responsibility are also key factors for the

REAL ESTATE Spectacular seascape classic

11 Cholmondeley Lane, Governors Bay Auction: Thursday, 9 November 2017 Unless Sold Prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | Listing ID BE192909

Locations like this don’t come up often but with our vendors committed to a move overseas, this is a rare opportunity to settle somewhere very special. In a park like setting with gently sloping lawns and lush, established gardens the property connects directly to the waterfront via a pathway. With nothing in the way, it’s a magnificent panorama out to the Lyttelton Harbour and surrounding hills. Peaceful and ever changing, this must be the ultimate antidote to life’s daily stresses. The classic homestead sits at the top of

the property enjoying the best of the views and sun. Built with family in mind there are four bedrooms, two living, 2 sunrooms and a large library/office that could be a fifth bedroom. The main family area is open plan with a huge kitchen at the heart. Granite benches and state of the art appliances make this a home-cook’s paradise. The dining area and adjoining living both open directly to a large deck and the ever-present vista. A wood burner with a feature stone surround adds the cosy warmth of real flame. Adjoining these spaces is the second

living room, which in turn connects to a sunny rear facing conservatory and courtyard. Upstairs is the master suite, library and a second sunroom with views right to Godley Head - the perfect spot to watch ships come and go, with yachts in the foreground and kids jumping off the pier at the bottom of your garden. There are two luxury bathrooms one being ensuite. There is two car garaging and tons of off street parking for the whole clan. Set in the small harbour community of Governors Bay the property is an easy

commute to central Christchurch, and a short stroll from all the community amenities including bars and cafes, the school and the local pool. Open Homes Saturdays and Sundays 12:00pm - 12:45pm. See you at the open home or to arrange a private viewing of this property call Debbie Pettigrew on 027 777 0411 or Debbie Johnson on 021 0515225 from Harcourts Grenadier Beckenham (Licensed Agent REAA 2008) or phone the office 337 1316

preconceptions of classical music being 'stuffy' or 'intimidating' by presenting a fresh and approachable ethos that appeals to listeners from all walks of life. e SOAR programme prepares audiences for new heights and perspectives. Weaving through changing tapestries, you'll find yourself adri in daydreams (Ireland) where life's complexity is seemingly simplified (Ritchie), primordial soundscapes pacify (Ker), and naivety is blissfully deliberate like a game of hide and seek (Schubert).

NZTrio, New Zealand's leading piano trio concludes its 2017 Christchurch concerts with Soar this November with guest violinist and fellow Mainlander, Manu Berkeljon. Cellist Ashley Brown and pianist Sarah Watkins are delighted to be working with Manu, who is originally from the West Coast and currently based in Sweden with a position in the Dalasinfoniettan orchestra, to bring this powerfully moving programme to Christchurch audiences, including the world premiere of Anthony Ritchie's Childhood and the NZ premiere of Onaia by Dorothy Ker. Described as a 'national treasure' and 'New Zealand's most indispensable ensemble' (William Dart, NZ Herald), NZTrio is renowned for their eclectic repertoire, outstanding talent, and warm kiwi stage presence. ey smash outmoded
