„„ By Sophie Cornish AN URGENT meeting with the Ministry of Education has been requested to discuss the future of several school sites across east Christchurch. The Coastal-Burwood Community Board want to hold the meeting before Christmas. Future use of the Burwood School site, a delay in the demolition of Aranui Primary School, discussions about the sale of Central New Brighton School, and the impact six school closures has had will be on the agenda. The community board will also request meetings be set up with community groups in response to the use of the Aranui and Central New Brighton school sites. Said Coastal-Burwood Ward city councillor Glenn Livingstone: “Given the significance of the loses – several schools – we’re saying, hey, we want your attention.” “Because this is big. Those decisions were made following the earthquake.” •Turn to page 7

Sculpture turning to dust

THERE APPEARS to be a bone of contention over whether the grass on an empty section in Avondale (see page 3) is a fire risk or not. Neighbour Maree Ross has been trying without success to get the undergrowth cut for sometime. She and a nearby kindergarten say it’s a fire risk. It is the section owner’s responsibility to cut the undergrowth. But that person can’t be traced. So Maree wants the city council to step in. It appears they won’t. They’ve told her the undergrowth isn’t a health risk in terms of rats, flies and other inhabitants. Fire risk doesn’t seem to be on their radar. And that’s puzzling given there’s a fire ban in place and the region is tinder dry. -Barry Clarke

News Clean this up – neighbour „„ By Sophie Cornish AN AVONDALE woman fed up with living next door to an overgrown property has been told it isn’t the city council’s problem. Maree Ross has tried for more than 18 months to get some action on the mess which she believes is a fire risk, attracts flies and vermin and is affecting her physical and mental health. The property is next to Woolley St Kidsfirst kindergarten which is also concerned about the fire risk. Ms Ross was visited by a city council staff member on Thursday. He said the section is not a health nuisance. The section was not assessed for fire risk, a city council spokeswoman said yesterday. The city council was unable to contact the owner to clean up the property, Ms Ross said she was told. City council spokeswomen Claire Le Grice said the maintenance responsibilities for private property sit with the property owner, unless it poses a safety risk. “The council may issue a notice requiring an occupier to

trim or remove vegetation where it is likely to become a source of danger in the event of a fire; or it causes an obstruction by encroaching onto footpaths, cycleways or roads. The city council placed fire restrictions on the city on Saturday. “Long, dry grass can cause fires to spread quickly so it is important at this time of year that people keep any grass around their property trimmed,’’ said Richard Neale, compliance and investigations team leader. Ms Ross said the empty section was purchased after the earthquakes. Nothing has been done to maintain the site since. Ms Ross’ hay-fever has increased since living next to the overgrown garden.

In Brief ROCKABILLY UPDATE The future of Rockabilly Show and Shine in Rawhiti Domain may be decided today. Event organisers will be meeting with city council staff and members from the Christchurch Archery Club to discuss dates. The Coastal-Burwood Community Board has expressed its support for the event. It has also requested advice from the city council about the possibility of a designated events space being established in the domain. Rockabilly event organisers cannot commence with planning and marketing until a date is confirmed. RABBITS TO STAY Rabbits living on roundabouts in the red zone are able to stay. A New Zealand Transport Agency spokeswoman said the issue has ‘gone on the back-burner’ and nothing more will be happening this year. The rabbits occupy roundabouts on Anzac Drive, New Brighton and Travis Rds. There have been traffic safety concerns because of the distractions they were causing to motorists. There were also concerns about people crossing the road with children to get to the roundabouts. NZTA has said the rabbits might have to be culled or captured and released.

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. 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.

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!

Jo Hayes 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. Check your rabbit twice a day and if you find a maggot on your rabbit take it to us immediately.

Cooked bones – These easily splinter and the bone shards can cause choking or get stuck in your dog’s gums or stomach resulting in emergency surgery. Discourage your dog from foraging in your bins and try to secure all of the lids.

The long and winding Aotearoa By George Lockyer

Driving a car (when are we there) you’re always on the way to somewhere. On a bike, you’re already there in the landscape, in the moment. And sometimes there’s literally nowhere else you’d rather be. In George Lockyer’s new book, The Long and Winding Aotearoa, we find him riding his Triumph Bonneville around the country, from Kaitaia to Invercargill, and seeing his often humorous take on life from under a crash helmet. On the way round our magnificent country he stops to interview some fascinating characters, all with a story to tell. We meet not just motorcyclists, but a wide variety of kiwis, from craftsmen, artists and firefighters, to rugby coaches, quakers and architects.

Sculpture turns back to dust Community board requests urgent meeting on school sites with ministry

„„ By Sophie Cornish A SELF-destructing sculpture represents the “fragility” of the eastern suburbs, according to its creator. New Brighton-based artist Melissa Macleod’s Salt of the Earth sculpture is made almost entirely of sand and has slowly collapsed. Located in the red zone on the corner of Linwood Ave and Woodham Rd, the temporary sculpture attempts to link east Christchurch to the central city. “I am interested in giving the east more of a voice. I like to do that by using materials that make you think of the east side of town. Sand is an obvious one,” said Macleod. It is a continuation of her other art works which engage the city’s coastal communities and the environmental and social challenges they face. In the past, Macleod has used sea water to create pieces and could possibly use coastal yellow daisies in future projects. The giant sand wedge mimicked a door stop when it was first built. “It’s a strong shape. The wedge is used a lot in sculptural practice. It’s quite significant in that it does prise things open,

ARTISTIC: Melissa Macleod with her crumbling sand sculpture which she says reflects the “fragility of the east”.

and also as a door jam, it holds things open. I quite like its symbolism.” “The crucial point for me is that it is strong but it also dissolves, softens and weakens and that is essentially cutting to what the core of life is out this way (in the east).” Macleod was aware of the sculpture’s potential disintegration but “hoped that it would speak to the strength and fragility of a community that is both determined and trodden under foot”. “The ultimate aim was that it might stand as a strong looking form for maybe a day, but it

is sand and I asked it to do an incredible thing by being that big, but I think the hot days we had could’ve affected it. The ground is very solid and there is a lot of vibration in the ground from passing trucks.” She hopes the crumbling sculpture will challenge public perception. “It’s a real test of what public sculpture can be or what the public will cope with to some degree. It’s sort of like placing a broken thing in a public place and that might challenge some people. They might not see it as part of the work – they might see it as a problem.”

Enrolling now for 2018 Principal’s Report Warm greetings to the Linwood College community. Kia ora koutou. Talofa lava. Kia orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste. Kumusta. 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. It is a testament to everyone’s collective vision and positive work for our school: BOT, staff, students, whanau, partner schools and community. Nga mihi nui and best wishes for the festive season and summer holiday. Richard Edmundson: Tumuaki-Principal

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.

Weight of gym phobia lifted

ADVERSITY: Libby Searle started her own home gym and fitness business and was named small group trainer of the year at the New Zealand Exercise Industry Awards.

„„ By Sophie Cornish LIBBY SEARLE used to fear exercise and the gym as she struggled to overcome obesity, anorexia and binge eating. But now the fit and trim business owner runs her own home gym to help women build confidence and get over the fears she once had. The competitive bench-presser has just won a national exercise award for small group trainer of the year. The 26-year-old Avondale resident runs Libby Searle Fitness on Breezes Rd and is “changing women’s lives through weight training”. “I always thought that the gym was for fit people, so when that changed in my life, I wanted to help other women realise they could do that too. I wanted them to make that first step into the gym and that’s where my group classes, ladies lifting, was born.” The personal trainer opened her home gym in 2016 and now runs 13 ‘ladies’ lifting’ classes and four high-intensity circuit classes every week. “I love working from home and having my own studio. I think the girls like having that

NO PAIN NO GAIN: Libby Searle hard at work.

privacy as well. We’ve got our own wee community going on,” said Miss Searle. Her journey to health started in 2011 when a flatmate suggested they run a half marathon. “At the age of 19, I was heading towards obesity, had lost all confidence, was getting sick all the time, and couldn’t even walk to the end of the street without getting puffed.” “We ran a lamp post, walked

a lamp post and we actually did it . . . and that was the turning point for me,” she said. Miss Searle started going to a gym following a hip injury which prevented her from running. She was thrilled to receive the award. “I was so surprised that I had won. I was really stoked actually, it was quite cool.” She hopes to own her own commercial, boutique-style gym in the future.

A SUPPORTIVE play group focused on children’s social development will be trialled in Aranui early next year. Te Whare Whanua, The Family House will aim to give children aged eight and under social opportunities to support their health and well-being. City East Charitable Trust received about $1700 from the Coastal-Burwood Community Board to start the project. Adults may also have access to parental learning programmes through the initiative which will be run in the Aranui/Wainoni Community Centre. There are currently no Ministry of Education-certified play groups in Aranui. The closest is Te Puna Oraka in Shirley and a Youth Alive, New Brighton. The Family House will have a lounge-like feel and provide play options for children such as board games, Lego, woodwork, music and possible outings each term. Services such as child and family counselling may also be added. It will initially operate one day a week and be managed by an experienced early childhood teacher.

A NEW community facilities booking service may help maximise the use of free spaces for groups in the city’s east. Local community groups have expressed an interest in managing the bookings done through the city council’s call centre. A community facility report for the Coastal-Burwood Community Board completed by an independent researcher found the booking system was not as effective as it could be. “Concerns were raised that bookings for the community centres are taken and managed by the city council call centre, and anyone can book the facility for any duration providing it is available. In practice, this means that for large chunks of time on a recurring basis, the facility is booked out by the same groups,

preventing access by other groups or local residents,” said researcher Sarah Wylie. She interviewed about 27 key stakeholders from suburbs in both wards. The co-ordinated approach will make it easier to match the multiple facilities to users’ needs. Residents from Aranui, North New Brighton, South Brighton, Queenspark and Parklands identified the change would be positive. The city council plans to conduct a trial with the Aranui Community Trust for the Aranui/Wainoni Community Centre. If successful, the Aranui Community Trust will also manage the bookings for St Ambrose church. The Bridge South Brighton Trust has also identified an interest in taking over bookings for the South Brighton Community Centre and South Brighton Surf Life Saving Club.

Pupils tested at police college SCHOOLS „„ By Sophie Cornish FOUR MARSHLAND School pupils are on their way to being as fit as a police officer. The year 7 and 8 pupils gained the quickest time for intermediate students in the physical competency test at the Royal New Zealand Police College in Wellington. The annual event is run by Blue Light New Zealand with teams of intermediate-aged pupils participating in mental and physical challenges. The Marshland team finished third overall out of 20 teams in the two-day national competition. Marshland was one of two Christchurch schools selected from a city-wide competition run by Blue Light Canterbury to get an all-expenses paid trip to Wellington. St Patrick’s School, Bryndwr, was the other selected and the two teams trained and travelled together. Marshland teacher Paul Tyson

said the pupils are “really motivated kids.” “They came back buzzing . . . they were really wrapped to get the fastest time. Even though they came third overall, they were still really pleased with that result,” said Mr Tyson. One of the four pupils has already showed interest in joining the police force.

Avonside old girl at emerging leaders meeting in Thailand

MAKING FRIENDS: Courtney Cray with some Thai children on a visit outside of Bangkok.

A FORMER Avonside Girls’ High student is making her mark internationally, taking part in the University Scholars Leadership Symposium in Thailand. Courtney Cray was one of more than 900 students from about 60 countries at the eighth symposium aimed at emerging leaders. The Parklands resident who is studying towards a Bachelor of Social Work degree is passionate about supporting families facing challenges and hopes her experience at the symposium will help. “Within New Zealand, and

globally, even beginning to comprehend the magnitude of the social injustices taking place can be overwhelming,” she said. Mrs Cray said a highlight of the symposium was visiting a village outside Bangkok where people are working to be fully self-sufficient. “During our time, we met with locals, and learnt firsthand about the Thai farmers’ lifestyle and how they worked collaboratively to be selfsufficient. The experience left me with a greater appreciation of the hard work that goes into

producing rice and admiration for the grassroots initiatives the community have in place.” The 27-year-old juggles study with part-time work and looking after her two-year-old daughter. Mrs Cray said it was a remarkable experience . “I look back to the beginning of the year and never saw myself doing this,” she said. “It was truly an amazing opportunity getting to meet with such a diverse group of people and learn how they were pursuing change in their communities. I came away feeling challenged and inspired.”

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.

Kids love MAINTENANCE: Donnell Park’s playground is in good condition, however the tennis court, basketball court, paths, drinking fountain and toilet block need repairs. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Call to address maintenance issues at Donnell Park „„ By Sophie Cornish “A LOT of maintenance” is needed in Burwood’s Donnell Park before it is considered a fully functioning community park again. Coastal-Burwood Ward city councillor David East (right) said with the east Burwood community growing, the park upkeep needs to be addressed. “Already when you drive down Travis Rd now you can see a number of new houses being built and

there will be a need for a community park.” City council head of parks Brent Smith said the playground is in good condition but the tennis court, basketball court, paths, drinking fountain and toilet block need repair or renewal work. “Staff will be scoping out the repairs over the coming weeks, identifying budget requirements and checking on the status of the infrastructure servicing the area. This includes

reinstating a linkage path across to Kingsbridge Drive from the playground,” said Mr Smith. Reinstating the sports field is not likely due to its low lying nature following the earthquakes. In the meantime, the mowing around the playground and the garden maintenance will be brought back up to the required standard. “It has potential, the infrastructure is all there, it just needs bit of TLC to bring it back to scratch,” said Cr East.

CASPA! 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. CASPA offers working parents an affordable after school and school holiday programme that their kids just love!

  FLAME FILES

Fire warning as summer starts heating up early „„ 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 firestarters, 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.

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!

BROUGHT TO YOU BY... 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

Directions

5 eggs 300g caster sugar 1 Tbsp cornflour 1 Tbsp dried rose petals 300 ml cream 250g blueberries 250g raspberries 1 lime 250g strawberries

Preheat the oven to 200 deg C and line a flat baking sheet with non-stick baking paper. Using an electric beater, whip the egg whites until firm, then whisk in the sugar. Fold in the cornflour and rose petals and place large spoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking sheet. Bake for 4045min.

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.

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.

$20 Early bird tickets available from www.city2surf.co.nz

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

ALI HARPER CELEBRATES THE JOY OF CHRISTMAS AWARD winning entertainer - Ali Harper - is once again bringing some Christmas Joy to Canterbury. 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

29

New Zealand, performed at the Metropolitan Room in New York, entertained on cruise ships, made numerous television appearances, and has recorded a collection of albums. “YOU would be mad not to go and sparkle in Ali Harper’s light.” - eatreview 2017. “Loud applause for this generously gied actress, with an all-enveloping voice that can take us with her no matter what she sings, is a further extension of the celebration of song that Ali offers.” - Lindsay Clark, eatreview Christchurch 2015.
