ONE OF the last “gentleman’s estates” in the city has been given a new lease of life. A heritage incentive grant of $135,979 for Opawa’s Cardowan estate was approved by the city council. The property at 64 Opawa Rd was built in the 1860s at a time when the suburb was a desirable residential area and land was being subdivided into gentlemen’s estates for professional men. But Cardowan was badly damaged in the earthquakes and subsequently sold on an as is, where is basis to TT Properties Ltd, which want to repair and restore the home and rejuvenate its large gardens. TT Properties Ltd director Tangi Karati applied to the council for a heritage grant to help meet the cost of the work, which is estimated at close to $300,000.  The $135,979 grant is subject to a 20-year limited conservation covenant being placed on the property. •Turn to page 6

TOP MARKS to Brian Cate, the Sydenham Bakery baker on our front page today. Brian is one of these people who work odd hours – most bakers do. His shift starts at 1am and he works through until 9 or 10am and then his after work time starts. That includes charity work; delivering food parcels to families through a programme at his church. And then it’s off home and he’ll be in the sack by around 5pm to get enough sleep to start his work day all over again at 1am. For his charity work, Brent has received a Kiwibank Local Hero Award, alongside a number of other Cantabrians. The Local Hero Awards are the real deal. Well deserved Brian. - Barry Clarke

News In Brief Lanes for coastal pathway „„ By Sarla Donovan LANES WILL be marked to separate cyclists and pedestrians on the Christchurch Coastal Pathway. The measures are needed, the Coastal Pathway Group said, as the path was attracting an increasing number of cyclists peaking around 5pm Chairman Scott Babington said outside that time, there were currently about 100 walkers and cyclists a day passing through Scott Park, “ which is the area most affected.” He said on the whole, the two groups shared the pathway well, but it made sense to provide markings and signs informing users it was a shared space. The New Zealand Transport Agency doesn’t impose a speed limit on shared pathways, but Mr Babington said they may need to consider introducing one. “Especially with the advent of electric bikes which may use the pathway and are often very powerful and used by inexperienced cyclists.” Shared paths are for “slower more relaxed travel,” according to the NZTA website. “On a shared path you

should put your e-bike in a low power setting and cycle at a speed consistent with other users so that it does not put others at risk or make them feel uncomfortable when you pass.” CPG is working on a signage plan at the moment, which would be based on the one at Hagley Park. “We have other measures (planned) such as different

surfaces on the pathway to make the point to users that this is a shared pathway and if they want to cycle fast then there are the on-road cycle lanes to use.” Mr Babington said there was standard shared pathway signage already but it was “very ugly and visually obtrusive and I think completely ineffective.

Work digging trenches for water and wastewater pipes is mostly completed along the Peacocks Gallop stretch of Main Rd and the next stage of roading work is under way, including new kerbs. The road will be resurfaced and cycleways built between now and the end of February.

EXTRA BINS FOR SUMMER Holiday hot spots on Banks Peninsula have had extra rubbish bins installed and increases to the emptying frequency to cope with the influx of visitors over summer. The city council has also installed large wheelie bins at the Diamond Harbour ferry Terminal, Naval Point slipway and Lyttelton Recreation Ground to deal with additional litter.

Christmas tips to keep your pets safe over the festive season ‘Tis the season to be jolly! In the spirit of the coming festive season the staff at McMaster and Heap Veterinary Practice wish to give you some helpful tips on how to keep your pets safe and happy over this busy time.

SERVICE: Mayor Lianne Dalziel and Kiwibank’s Mark Stephen presented Brian Cate with his local hero award. PHOTO: AARON CAMPBELL

Festive foods: Many festive foods can be harmful and toxic to cats & dogs – here are some of the major ones that pop up every year at Christmas time!

Grapes and Raisins - Some types of grapes and raisins have been shown to cause kidney failure in dogs when eaten in toxic quantities. So think before offering your pet some tasty Christmas cake or yummy ‘treats’ off the fruit platers. Onions - Pieces of raw onion, onion powder, or even cooked onion can cause damage to red blood cells, which could result in hemolytic anemia. Garlic - fresh and powdered forms of garlic are more potent than onions. These also cause damage to red blood cells. Cats are much more sensitive as they have more fragile red blood cells. Xylitol - Xylitol is a sugar alternative that is used in many commercial ‘sugar-free’ candies, gum, and other food items. Xylitol has been shown to cause severe hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and liver damage in dogs and can be fatal. Xylitol keeps popping up in unexpected places – the newest one is peanut butter, so be sure to read the label carefully. Macadamia Nuts - dangerous to dogs when eaten can result in weakness, depression, vomiting, incoordination, and tremors. In most cases, dogs developed clinical signs within the first twelve hours after eating the macadamia nuts. Chocolate - Contains Theobromine and caffeine which can cause increased heart rate, tremors, and excitation, depending on the type and the quantity ingested potentially death when ingested at a toxic dose. Other effects seen with chocolate overdose are vomiting, diarrhea, increased thirst, increased urination, and lethargy. Dark chocolate is the most serious as it contains the most theobromine, then milk chocolate, while white chocolate doesn’t contain any, but still not healthy for your dog to have.

Baker takes local hero award Christmas Decorations Christmas decorations are not for pets to play with. • Keep your pet away from plants, many of which are poisonous, especially lilies which are extremely toxic for cats and results in acute kidney failure. • Keep electrical wires and batteries out of your pets reach. Chewing electrical cables can cause electric shock or burns to the mouth. • Be careful if you are using tinsel on your tree. If eaten, the tinsel can block your pets intestines – we saw several of these last Christmas!

Don’t forget about your RABBITS Flystrike is a serious condition in rabbits. It occurs mostly in the summer months and we see a lot of cases over the holiday season as people get really busy and forget to regularly check on their pets. Flystrike is extremely distressing and it is also potentially fatal. It is caused by flies that are attracted to damp fur, urine, faeces and the odour of the rabbit’s scent. The flies will land on the rabbit normally around the rabbits rear end and lay their eggs. Within a very short time of 2 hours the eggs will hatch into maggots which start to feed on the rabbits skin. This process happens very quickly and is not always caught in time.

•From page 1 “I started through my church, other people were doing it so I joined in,” Mr Cate said. He said it was nice to be acknowledged but preferred to keep a low profile and get on with helping the people he had made a connection with over the years. He said he would carry on helping them for the foreseeable future.

New fundraiser for historic jetty RESTORE: A new fundraising initiative has been launched to help restore the Governors Bay Jetty. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

„„ By Sarla Donovan A NEW fundraising appeal to help save the historic Governors Bay jetty has been launched this week. The ‘sponsor a plank’ initiative aims to raise $750,000, which together with funds already raised by the Jetty Restoration Trust and committed by the city council, will bring the total to around $1.35 million. People, families, or businesses who donate $500 Louisa Eades or more will be recognised as “Plank Sponsors”, with a plaque engraved with their name or short message on a plank on the new Jetty. Trust secretary Louisa Eades has also written a piece for the New Zealand Women’s Weekly about how the jetty was rescued and the journey so far towards restoration. Her story will be published early next year. She’s hoping the publicity

will broaden the appeal beyond Christchurch. The jetty has been a feature of the bay since 1874 and is an important part of Canterbury history.

being there,” said Ms Eades. “It’s like the Cathedral in the square or the Esplanade in Sumner. It’s just part of the bay, and an important historical feature.” At just under 300 metres long, the jetty is the same length as the New Brighton pier, but low to the water and timber-made. “It’s an amazing place to walk along or boat to,” said trust chairman Simon Mortlock. The city council last year agreed to temporarily sell ownership for $1 to the Governors Bay Jetty Restoration Trust who will repair it before returning it back to the city council. The repair is expected to cost up to $3 million. For more information or to sponsor a plank, see www. savethejetty.org/sponsor-a-plank.

Tenders close for Halswell skate parks

Historic cafe gets new lease of life

•From page 1 It was originally home to David McKay, an immigration officer with the Canterbury Provincial Government who also administered the Charitable Aid Fund. Mr McKay defaulted on the mortgage repayments on the house after he was charged with embezzlement, lost his job and his wife left him. The house was bought by Georgiana Thomson, the widow of accountant William Thomson, who was a captain with the Canterbury Yeomanry Calvary, Provincial Auditor and Official Assignee at the time of his death in 1866. She named the two-storey

weatherboard house Cardowan after a suburb in Glasgow. When Georgiana Thompson died she passed the house to her son, John. He had arrived in Canterbury as a child with his parents and spent his early years working on sheep stations before taking up his father’s profession. In his retirement John Thomson took up walking long distances on the Port Hills and in 1931 he gifted 63 acres of land on the Port Hills (now known as Thomson Park) to the public. The city council’s heritage team is helping the new owners compile a detailed history of the property, email any information or photos to heritage@ccc.govt.nz.

„„ By Emily O’Connell THE TWO proposed Halswell skate parks are one step closer with the deadline for tender applications closing yesterday. After three years of planning, the Halswell Domain and Knights Stream skate parks are expected to be ready by late April, instead of January as initially planned. City council head of parks Brent Smith said after the resource consents were lodged, the skate parks went out for tender on November 16. The consent process took

longer than expected and, as a result, construction of both parks has been delayed. Halswell Residents Association secretary David Hawke said the skate parks are fantastic and they will have a good impact on the community. “If you look at one of the things the Halswell Hub is doing, it’s got a different type of outreach I suppose, for young people in our community and the skate parks fit into that bigger picture,” he said. Mr Hawke said parents are currently having to drive their children to Prebbleton to skate.

“You see people doing what they’re not supposed to be doing, which is sort of bounce their scooters and skateboards about in the supermarket carparks and so on,” he said. The city council won’t know if both sites will be managed together until a contractor has been selected. Mr Smith said the city council is intending on choosing a contractor before Christmas. He said construction on both skate parks should start at the beginning of February, with landscaping to be completed in May.

PROGRESS: The Halswell Domain skate park (pictured) and the Knights Stream skate park are both on their way to being built, with tender applications closing yesterday. ​

Linwood College enjoys celebrating student success in all its forms so our congratulations to the prizewinners highlighted on this page. I would like to also congratulate all Junior students who were awarded prizes at the 2017 Junior Prize Giving ceremony held on 11th December. Our community views education as the wellbeing of the whole person. All developmentally positive experiences enrich our students’ understanding of whom they are and broaden their outlook. They nurture students’ classroom focus by contextualising their learning and sowing the seeds of positive ambition. Linwood College believes in a “pathwayed

2017 Senior Prizegiving Awards curriculum”. This means the school, students and families knowing: 1. Students’ learning and skills as they come into LC from our partner primary schools and building on these successes 2. How the learning at LC connects to what the students want to do when they leave school. “What are my post-school pathways and how does my LC help me achieve these pathways?” In this way learning is meaningful to the individual and strengths-based. At Linwood the individual matters. Finally, the Education Review Office reviewed Linwood College in the second half of term 3. The confirmed report is now public and I am delighted to say that the school is back on the three year return cycle.

Year 10s get Enterprising Last week ninety Year 10 students worked hard for three days in the school gym to create business ideas. Two presenters from the Young Enterprise Trust came to the school to lead the students through the process of creating and developing businesses. On Wednesday, the students were put into groups of between five and ten students and given the challenge of creating a new business based on modern technology. By Friday, the students were ready to present their ideas and associated business plans to judges from the local business community.

Here Sina Sila and her team mates are presenting their idea ‘Zoinks’ - an app that stops you from making unnecessary purchases to Gyaney from BP.

Early in Term 3, the school’s senior students, teachers and families gathered in the school hall to celebrate the year’s successes. Prize winners were entertained by the highly talented Kimihia haka group and school jazz band. Congratulations to all prize winners, particularly to our 2017 Supreme Award Winners: Dux: Crystal Mehlhopt Proximae Accessit: Eden Pettigrew

Every woman likes to receive bodypampering gifts, and there is a huge selection of these priced to suit all budgets at the many pharmacies and gift shops around the city. Perfume is another favourite and again there is a wide selection to choose from, ranging from exciting new releases to the well-known fragrances that have stood the test of time. Lingerie, jewellery, fashion accessories, homewares and decor items – there’s no end to the ideas for the women on the list. The men are equally well catered for, from the sophisticated metro-male boyfriends, to the car-crazy brothers and the DIY

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families more joy than seeing the excitement of the children opening their presents. Whether they are delivered by Santa or snuck under the tree by mum and dad, the cuddly toys, games, dolls and building blocks, the candy canes, toy trucks and pretty dresses currently filling the shops will bring squeals of sheer happiness from the smallest family members.

  FLAME FILES

Fire warning as summer starts heating up early CHAMPS: Cashmere High’s year 10 water polo team won the South Island schools B grade title. PHOTO: CASHMERE HIGH

Cashmere win close final to claim water polo title „„ By Andrew King CASHMERE High’s year 10 water polo team won the B grade title at the South Island junior secondary schools championships. Playing Papanui High in the final, they narrowly won 1-0 thanks to a solid defensive performance from Rosie Howard, which saw her named most valuable player in the decider. Heading into the last quarter at 0-0, it took a moment of

SPORTS brilliance by Holly Cartwright who scored after intercepting a loose pass from Papanui’s goalkeeper. The teams met in the roundrobin with Cashmere coming out on top 4-2. Cashmere coach Tom Wilkinson said both teams had a better understanding of each

other’s play which led to a much tighter encounter in the final. He said after a hiatus, the sport is making a comeback at the school. “We have not had a water polo programme for 10 years until we started it again last year with this group of girls,” he said. “We had three teams this year so it is increasing in popularity.” “This is also due to the work of St Martins and Christchurch South Intermediate, who are in our school zone (and) have been pushing it at year 7 and 8.”

„„ By Mark Thomas – fire risk management officer AS THE summer heats up, so does the number of calls our troops are attending. It’s normal to have about 100 calls in a week.  Weather events, of course, add to the number.  So the 169 incidents attended last week can at least in part be attributed to the weather, or the heat, to be more precise. A large number of false alarms, presumably from fire detection systems drooping and a large number of ambulance assists including, unfortunately, several sudden deaths, added to the list. Also we attended far too many grass and skip or bin fires. While a few of these are the result of accidents most of them were lit deliberately. Whether it be kids playing or

malicious fire-starters, the dry conditions make all of these potentially serious. The Governors Bay crew were called to the local hotel on December 2 to what turned out to be a patron puffing on a vaping cigarette. It’s a first for me to see this but hardly surprising. I followed a car the other day with two people both vaping and both front windows open. The clouds of vapour they were seemingly choreographing erupted from both sides of the car like whistles from a steam train. I guess it’s better for them than the alternative! Sprinklers in buildings are expensive. But one operating in Pak’nSave in the Hornby Hub on December 3 stopped a fire from a bakers oven in its tracks. The mall re-opened quickly. That’s why we love sprinkler systems.

From the Board

Whatever we want to be...

As we go to print we are excited to hear our new Bishop, Fr Paul Martin SM, has been appointed to Christchurch. In celebrating the news, a special thank you must go to Fr Rick Loughnan for his leadership in the interim, to the Diocese for its ongoing support and we remember Bishop Barry Jones with fondness. Bishop-Elect Paul’s appointment represents an exciting new phase of growth for our Catholic community. Thank you to our Board of Trustees, college and community and members of the Marian Foundation for your work throughout 2017. To our Marian girls – relax and enjoy the well-earned break. There are some fantastic programmes, and collaborative project opportunities planned for 2018. And finally, congratulations to our 2017 Marian College leavers. The gospel values – which underpin the special character of Marian College – will guide you well into the future. We wish you all the very best and please keep in touch. Wishing you good health and blessings this Christmas. Jan Paterson Marian College Board of Trustees

Young Māori Marian College students participating in the Manukura programme are realising if they put their minds to it – they can do and be whatever they want.

Prize winners 2017 The 2017 Dux of Marian College has been awarded to Jessie Fahey and Proxime Accessit to Rebecca Lake.

The full list of senior major prize recipients and photographs are now on the Marian College website. Marian College Principal Mary-Lou Davidson says as well as reflecting the opportunities students have in a wide range of areas of the school, awards are a reflection of hard work and dedication. “Congratulations to all the students who have been acknowledged,” Mrs Davidson says.

Ultimate St John Award

The programme is a partnership between Ngāi Tūāhuriri, Te Tapuae o Rehua and seven eastern Christchurch secondary schools and aims to ensure young Māori see themselves as leaders of the future. Participating student Rawinia Tahi (Ngāti Maniapoto) says she has learnt a lot.

‘Recognising my gifts and understanding how I can use them to help others, was the biggest realisation for me,’ Rawinia says.

Summer scarfie Year 11 Marian College student Keely Stuart (Te Aitanga-A-Mahaki) has received a Ngā Mahi-a-Ringa Pūtaiao Scholarship from Otago University. Keely will be participating in a week-long Hands-on at Otago programme during the summer holidays to experience being a science student on campus. Keely says she is very excited to be accepted onto the fully-funded programme. ‘I’m interested in a career in health, science and physiology so it will be a great opportunity to see what Otago University is like,’ she says.

The Grand Prior Award is the ultimate award, other than for bravery, for St John Cadets. Georgiana was one of 90 cadets - including former Marian student Steph Wessing (left) - from around New Zealand to receive the prestigious award.

Zonta Awards

‘I love learning new leadership skills and I’m really thankful I joined St John, as otherwise I wouldn’t have considered the Navy as a career path,’ she says.

The Zonta Awards are a celebration of the highest sports achievers - leaders in their sport locally and often competitors on the world stage.

Georgiana’s plans include a gap year, travel, and a career in the Navy as a medic.

This year, three Marian College students were finalists at the Zonta Sports Awards. Renee Rae won the top award for her contribution to netball umpiring. A judge said Renee follows a long tradition of Marian students who have won the award, and there was something very special about Marian College and its tradition of service.

Ara awards excellence The opportunities and benefits of an innercity campus are many for Marian College students. From Year 11, students can choose to earn credits at Ara Institute of Canterbury, making the most of excellent facilities and teaching expertise – just across the road. Recently, three Marian students received

awards at Ara Youth Showcase. Year 12 students Holly Stanley (pictured) received Academic Excellence in the NZ Certificate in Cookery level 3, Aniesh Holland received Academic Excellence in Hospitality Supported Learning and Georgiana Vaughan-Walker received a Citizenship Award

Rebecca Lake (Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Irakehu) and Millicent Smith (Ngāpuhi) were both nominated for outstanding achievement for their New Zealand representation in football and ice hockey respectively. This is the second year Rebecca has been acknowledged in the highly competed category.

Your Local Views Adding to opportunities in Halswell Halswell Community Project’s chairwoman Chrys Horn talks about the Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub and what it’ll mean to the Halswell and surrounding communities Great sports opportunities – both formal and informal and more spaces which can be used by our community are two things that we can expect as Nga Puna Wai develops.    Halswell is already a great place for those interested in sport and the developments in Nga Puna Wai will add in athletics, tennis and hockey to the opportunities that already exist in the area.  The addition of a pavilion with café and bar facilities is also a bonus for those who will use

the site for. We understand also that the pavilion will have space available for the community to hire for their own events. For Halswell people there will also be great walking and

cycling opportunities as well as community sports fields that can be used for casual games. Many people already use the area for walking and this will not change.   We are hopeful that there

will be great cycle paths that will connect from Aidanfield through to Curletts Rd and provide a safe and fun way for Hillmorton High School students to bike to school. 

In addition they could also provide a way to connect Hoon Hay and Halswell Rd through to the cycleway alongside the new Southern Motorway. It’s likely it will also be great for local businesses – especially those that will be setting up in the new Halswell Commons subdivision. The Halswell Community Project is hopeful they will be able to set up a local weekly farmers market when these developments are all complete.  As the area grows this facility will be a wonderful addition to the recreation opportunities available in Halswell, Wigram and Hillmorton and Spreydon. 

Pupils turn hand-made goods into cold hard cash „„ By Emily O’Connell ST BERNADETTE’S School pupils turned hand-made and secondhand goods into money at their market day last Thursday.

tencies,” Miss Satherley said. Sweets, bookmarks, secondhand items, stress balls, games, cards and sausages all went up for sale. The school also had a cafe, face painting station, hair colour station, traditional games, and a water balloon throw. “Having all of the children involved in the market allows them to take ownership over their learning and working as a team,” Miss Satherley said. She said any additional profit from the market will go towards a community day at the end of the term. St Bernadette’s hold a market day every second year.

Miss Satherley said each class decided on a reward they would like to have at the end of the school term with the money they raised.

CHRISTMAS HAM ON THE BONE GLAZED WITH PINEAPPLE Ingredients 4kg ham on the bone 1 cup canned crushed pineapple, drained 1 cup brown sugar, tightly packed 1 tsp ground ginger Directions Preheat the oven to 180 deg C. Run a knife around the shank end of the ham. Carefully slice under the edge of the rind at the base of the ham. Use your fingers to ease between the rind and the fat. Pull to gently remove the rind. With a sharp knife, score

the fat with 3mm-deep cuts in a diamond pattern. Place ham in a foil-lined oven pan large enough to catch any glaze that drips as it cooks. Surround ham with one cup cold water. Drain pineapple and combine with glaze ingredients in a bowl. Smear glaze over scored fat of ham. Bake ham for 40-45min, basting at regular intervals until the glaze has caramelised to a golden brown. Rest the baked ham for at least 15min before carving. Sliced ham can either be served hot or at room temperature. ROSE PETAL MERINGUE WITH SUMMER BERRIES AND STRAWBERRY SAUCE Ingredients

FOCUS ON HEALTH Miracle weight loss fruit Dilo Oil – The Remarkable An extract of a small pumpkin-like fruit called Garcinia Cambogia from India & Asia has shown itself to greatly assist weight management & overall health. 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!

SUPER CitriMax

CLINICAL STRENGTH GARCINIA CAMBOGIA

Skin Rejuvenator

Until Rachel Hunter’s popular TV series “TOUR OF BEAUTY” Dilo Oil was relatively unknown, being one of the best-kept secrets of the Pacific Islands. It may however be the number one natural beauty oil available as it possesses powerful natural skin regeneration and healing properties. According to ethnobotanist Chris Kilham, Dilo (pronounced dee-lo) Oil is a powerful skin regenerator as it is one of the most effective agents in promoting the regeneration and formation of new tissue, thereby accelerating wound healing and the growth of healthy skin. Dilo Oil is super-absorbing and can penetrate all three layers of the skin, offering exceptional cell hydration and regeneration. As well as this, Dilo Oil has potent anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal and antioxidant properties. Traditionally, Dilo Oil is used to keep the skin young and youthful and for just about any skin complaint. Some of the conditions for which it is considered helpful include abrasions, cuts and cracks, acne and acne scars, pimples, blemishes, stretch marks, wrinkles, blisters, burns (including chemical and radiation), diabetic sores, rashes, shaving irritation, dry or scaly skin,

eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, herpes sores (cold-sores), insect bites and stings, rheumatism, pain, sciatica, shingles, sunburn, rosacea, athlete’s foot, skin eruptions, warts, skin ulcers and sores, nappy rash and almost any other skin ailment and often with incredible results. Many beauty and skincare products on the market today contain unnatural ingredients that can be toxic and may even contribute to disease. Generally the benefits are exaggerated and often only temporary or camouflage. Marshall’s Dilo Oil is 100% pure and certified organic. It has been cold-pressed from the Dilo nut and contains absolutely no additives. Polynesians and Southeast Asians have revered Dilo Oil for centuries believing it to be a sacred gift of nature and the Gods. Dilo oil stimulates and supports the skins natural healing process through the growth of new healthy skin tissue. I personally believe it is a remarkable product and highly recommend it to everyone. A 50ml bottle is $19.90 and 100ml only $29.90. Further information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy in New Brighton. We are Always Happy to Help!

CASPA!

FRESH: Tomato plants ready to leave Rolleston. ​

Rolleston Prison donates tomato plants to social housing tenants MORE than 5000 tomato plants have been handed over to the Ōtautahi Community Housing Trust to be donated to city housing tenants. The plants are an annual project at Rolleston Prison and are grown from seed to plant ready for home gardens. The plants take eight to ten weeks from planting and germination until they are ready to be collected. “This project gives prisoners an opportunity to give something back

and provides people in the community with the means to grow healthy food for themselves and their family,” said Rolleston Prison director Mike Howson. “Many of the prisoners know what it is like to struggle financially and they enjoy the opportunity to do something for the community, especially near to Christmas. Seeing the plants leave the prison for a person’s garden means a great deal to the men involved,” he said.

More than 40,000 tomato plants have been cultivated and donated since the Tomatoes for Tenants Project began in 2008 and the annual delivery of the tomatoes is highly anticipated by the city housing tenants. Rick Fraser of Ōtautahi said the trust values the partnership with Rolleston Prison and many tenants appreciate the plants and save a space in their gardens for them. Leftover plants are gifted to schools and community groups.

CASPA (Creative After School Programmed Activities) incorporating PAPA JACKS offers children the opportunity to be creative, make new friends and try new experiences all within a safe, nurturing environment.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Time to check your tyres before heading away on holiday As the holidays approach and plans are made for summer road trips, now is the time to check that your tyres are in good condition, says Julie Hurst of JCM Direct, the tyre specialists in Birmingham Drive. Julie and her husband Athol own the business, with Julie running it on a dayto-day basis. Now that WOFs on later model vehicles are issued every 12 months, drivers may be unaware that their tyres are becoming worn, Julie says. “Come in and see us. We offer free tyre checks, so you can head away on holiday knowing they are roadworthy and your family is safe.” If tyres do need replacing, JCM Direct offers a wide variety of quality brands at very competitive prices. They have new tyres for everything from cars, vans and 4WDs, to caravans, ride-on mowers, wheelbarrows and trailers. As well as an excellent selection of quality second-hand tyres for most vehicles, they hold a vast selection of 4WD tyres in stock. JCM Direct also offer puncture repairs, supply and fitting of new and secondhand alloy wheels, wheel alignments, replacement factory steel rims and rim repairs.

“We also specialise in old rims from the 1930s to 1970s for people with older caravans and trailers – the modern rims won’t fit those,” Julie says. Finance is available with Q Card or Farmers Card. JCM Direct is located on the corner of Birmingham Drive and Hands Road. They are open Monday to Friday, 9.30am5pm and Saturday 9.30am-1pm. Phone 343-0099, 027 22 63 805.

Public Notice

Is your property safe from fire?

Here’s a guide to help understand the risk in your area

During the fire season, there are some risks you need to know about to help keep you, your family and your property safe. Throughout New Zealand, there are different levels of risk, depending on where you live and what the area around you is like. As we build more and more homes in previously rural areas, the level of risk is different to properties built in a more urban setting. Make sure you check your property and are aware of your surroundings so you can be best prepared this fire season.

Steps you need to take to keep your property safe

1

2

3

Make sure you have a ‘safe zone’ around your property -

Clear vegetation close to your home. This could fuel a fire if one started. Choose plants with low flammability – native plants are often better. Keep your lawns mowed and green. Don’t store firewood close to the house. Clear your gutters of dry leaves. Be careful when using any mechanical equipment in dry conditions.

Have an escape plan and an agreed safe meeting place - Go to www.escapeplanner.co.nz to make a plan to get out of your home safely and agree a safe meeting place. Practise this regularly. - Think about where you will meet if you need to evacuate the area. - Have an emergency evacuation kit in case you need to leave quickly. - If in doubt, leave early. Good access for firefighters - Fire trucks need a lot of space to manoeuvre. Make sure there are no overgrown trees or other obstacles that may prevent access to your property. - We can pump from water supplies such as a pond, pool or tank. - Make sure your address or RAPID number is clearly visible.

The fire risk applies to everyone, no matter where you live. For more information check, www.fireandemergency.nz

Aer her sold out Christmas Joy shows last year, Ali has put together another beautifully festive concert incorporating the Voices Co Youth Ensemble along with winner of TVNZ’s Naked Choir and founder of Voices Co, Julian Hay on piano. “I adore this time of year. Not only because I see it through the eyes of my children but because it’s a special time to reflect on the past year, the joys and the challenges. I have created a concert that will include the angelic voices of children singing which is both pure and for me what Christmas is all about.” In a career spanning 25 years, Ali has starred in numerous musicals and plays across
