Shortage of water still a concern for peninsula firefighters

RECOGNISED: Derek McCullough was presented with a civic award for his work with the Mt Pleasant Memorial Community Centre and Residents Association. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

McCullough ‘chuffed’ with award „„ By Sarla Donovan A TIRELESS worker for the rebuild of the Mt Pleasant Community Centre has been recognised with a civic award. Derek McCullough said he was “really chuffed” to have been recognised. “It’s such a nice feeling. Unexpected, but wonderful.”

He was among 12 groups and individuals acknowledged for outstanding service to the community at a ceremony at the Arts Centre last week. The Friends of the Akaroa Museum was recognised for its commitment to preserving the past. The awards were presented by Mayor Lianne Dalziel.

Mr McCullough was awarded for his two decades of involvement with the Mt Pleasant Memorial Community Centre and Residents Association and for the work he has put in since the earthquakes to get the centre back up and running. World Buskers Festival founder Jodi Wright nominated him for the award. The pair have

known each other from the early 1990s when Ms Wright started the festival and Mr McCullough was getting his first Blues, Brews and BBQs event under way. He said it was particularly poignant to be recognised for his work after the earthquakes, as it had been a challenging time. •Turn to page 6

„„ By Sarla Donovan FIREFIGHTERS on some parts of Banks Peninsula will have to manage with limited water supplies this summer, in spite of scorching temperatures. The Banks Peninsula Community Board last week had a briefing from Fire and Emergency New Zealand’s principal rural fire officer Darrin Woods on how FENZ will work in rural areas. The meeting was originally scheduled for February this year but that was overtaken by the Port Hills fire. Board member Tori Peden said she had been hoping for more specifics to come out of the meeting. “I expressed concerns about access to water in the Little River/ Birdlings Flat area and was told things were in the pipeline, it was just a waiting game.” Little River firefighters and residents are worried property could be put at risk this summer after the city council took back an almost new water tanker when FENZ was created, swapping it for a smaller, slower vehicle. •Turn to page 6

Wastewater flows higher than thought

IT’S HARD to believe another year has just about whizzed by. It’s been another 12 months of change – particularly in the media game as the big overseas-owned media groups grapple over how to deliver the news to its consumers, and still stay in business. But the Bay Harbour News rolls on, providing good local news and advertising to readers who, in spite of what the big boys might say, still enjoy the feel and touch of a newspaper. But best of all it’s local, and that’s something the Bay Harbour News has been doing for a long time. So have a very merry, safe and enjoyable Christmas, and of course a Happy New Year! – Barry Clarke

A new meter has been installed to gauge wastewater discharge into Akaroa Harbour after an old unit was found to be under-reading.

Sneaky bid to deter freedom campers Signs stolen so camper vans won’t park up „„ By Sarla Donovan PEOPLE AGAINST freedom camping are taking the law into their own hands in a sneaky bid to thwart them from staying over night. Akaroa Police Senior Constable Anita Osborne said not all residents welcomed freedom campers to the area and some felt very strongly about the issue. But fully self-contained camper vans are legally able to park for two nights in threequarters of the streets around the area and people needed to find better ways to communicate their feelings than stealing signs, she said. Freedom camping signs in Akaroa Heritage Park and Ellangowan Reserve near Hickory Bay were targeted last Wednesday. One was stolen and another damaged. The signs show where and for how long self-contained camper vans can legally park. The vandalism follows an earlier incident last Monday

THEFT: Camping signs like this have been stolen and damaged in Akaroa Heritage Park and Ellangowan Reserve on Banks Peninsula.

when two freedom camping signs were taken from Selwyn Ave, Akaroa. Those signs were left on the Akaroa Police Station doorstep after Senior Constable Osborne used social media to call for their return. “I’m trying to drum in that there are lawful alternatives to

make your voice heard,” she told Bay Harbour News. Her advice: “If you want to protest make a sign and stand on a corner. Or complain to the city council, and take part in community meetings and have some input. Be lawful. Because otherwise, you may end up at court.”

She said larger vans weren’t a problem but some of the smaller ones, where the toilet was located beneath the mattress, weren’t very practical. She said people travelling in smaller vans often used public toilets instead, because it was difficult to access the toilet if a bed was on top. Rules around which vehicles qualified as ‘self-contained’ were tightened earlier this year after a review of the national standard for self containment of motor caravans and caravans. Motor Caravan Association national policy planning manager James Imlach said the tightening was in response to vehicles which complied with the technical wording of the standard – to have a toilet on-board – but not the intent, which was for people to use the toilet inside the vehicle. Under the new standard, a person must be able to use the toilet within the vehicle, even when the bed is made up. Mr Imlach said there were some vehicles on the road which were certified under the old standard (certification is given for four years) but they currently make up less than one per cent of motor homes registered in New Zealand.

In Brief SECURITY CAMERA FUND A Givealittle page to help purchase and install surveillance cameras in Sumner has so far attracted $2215 from 35 donors. The group behind the cameras, Safer Sumner, was formed last month after a spate of aggravated burglaries in the area, including an armed intruder who was confronted by Emely van Ras in her Scarborough home. Safer Sumner wants to raise $4000 to install two cameras in the village. Donations to the Givealittle page close on January 5. SCOTT PARK PROGRESS A landscape architect has been appointed to remedy issues with the layout and design of Scott Park, Ferrymead. The park has been criticised for its lack of public access to the foreshore and poor layout, parking and public space. The city council has developed an initial brief for the architect which will go to a working party for discussion. CRUISE SHIP LEVY The Akaroa Civic Trust wants a $5 levy on cruise ship passengers who come onshore, to help fund the Akaroa health hub. The trust has raised the idea with the Banks Peninsula Community Board.

News Well known teacher faces another Chris Todd has just retired after teaching for 31 years at Christchurch Boys’ High School. The Sumner resident also has terminal cancer – shattering to most, Toddy, as she is affectionately known, is taking it in her stride. Julia Evans reports CHRIS TODD knew she had cancer before her doctor said the word. The Christchurch Boys’ High School maths and athletics teacher, known as Toddy, figured it out after being sent for blood tests and CT scans. From the stomach down, then from the neck down, then just in her liver. “I didn’t drink, I wasn’t overweight. There shouldn’t have been anything wrong,” she said. She was referred to an oncologist. “A little voice in my head said something wasn’t right . . . I hadn’t been told it was cancer but I was seeing an oncologist. I knew by that stage,” she said. It was on April 10, 2014, when her doctor finally said she had a gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumour. “I said, yeah, alright. I know . . . the doctor said start working on your bucket list.” She was told it had spread and she was terminal. There are 27

tumours in her liver – she calls them The Fockers. The cancer is inoperable, it’s the same kind that Apple founder Steve Jobs died of in 2011. “When I was told it was a rare form of cancer I said good. I wouldn’t want the garden variety,” Miss Todd said. “I went and told my friends, it is cancer but it’s no big deal. I can still remember the look on their faces.” She said she feels blessed that they can’t be operated on. “In my opinion, the less you’re cut open, the better.” Miss Todd has now retired after 31 years at CBHS, teaching maths and a time as head of sport. She said it was a difficult decision to make as the school had been her life since 1986. But she won’t really be leaving. “I’ve set up in my will for my money to go into a scholarship for boys’ high runners,” she said.

Miss Todd’s entire estate will go towards helping athletic and multi-sport students attend events they might not otherwise afford, following her death. But since her diagnosis, the active Sumner resident has been doing everything in her power to finish her bucket list. Which has included several trips to cycle the Alpes d’Huez section of the Tour de France. Her oncologist said she would feel better just having coffee with her friends at home. But instead of heeding the advice, Miss Todd made it her mission. “I sent a photo of me at the top of the Alpes d’Huez. It’s in the waiting room of the clinic now,” she said. And she’s got plans to go back next year. “Hopefully, I’ll die coming off my bike on a hill in France.” Cycling is a relatively new thing for Miss Todd, she had competed solely as a runner until 2008 when she started riding.

Merry Christmas from the team at Sirocco.

challenge: Terminal cancer “Someone said don’t give Toddy a bike, she only knows how to run. It’s a bad idea to tell me I can’t do something.” A year later in 2009 she was competing in the World Duathalon Championships in Concord, California. Then again the following year in Edinburgh, Scotland, and a further year in Gijon, Spain, where she came fourth in her age group. Even now she cycles for several hours a day on her stationary bicycle: “To spite The Fockers.” But Miss Todd’s first passion has always been running. She used to go on a two-hour run through the Port Hills every morning before cycling to CBHS via Governors Bay and the Sign of the Kiwi. The running stopped, not because of the cancer, but a botched hip replacement which she said was “harder to come to terms with than The Fockers.” “I’m a bit of a street fighter . . . if I’m told I can’t do something, I’ll do it . . . the cancer became another challenge,” Miss Todd said.

THE SURFBREAK Protection Society has withdrawn its appeal against the Lyttelton Port Company’s plan to extend the harbour shipping channel. LPC has been granted resource consent to extend the existing channel, but SPS appealed the consent over concerns about local surf breaks. SPS spokesman Michael Gunson said yesterday it had resolved its concerns after LPC agreed to additional protective measures. These included the establishment of a surfing liaison group, regular surf reviews and a dedicated web-based camera system to monitor the Taylors Mistake surf break. The monitoring will be based on a system implemented by the Port of Otago. Te Runanga  o Ngai  Tahu, Te Hapu  o Ngati Wheke, Te Runanga  o Koukourarata and Ngai Tahu Fisheries have also lodged appeals against the consent. LPC chief executive Peter Davie said the company “remains focused” on working with the groups to resolve the issues.

Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, she was told she “wasn’t sick enough.” But Miss Todd wrote a PhDlike essay on all of the reasons she was suitable for the treatment. A month later she was having the first round. “I say to people it’s a bit like earthquake repairs. You’ve got to manage it yourself,” she said. The treatment stunted The Fockers’ growth, she said. The tumours haven’t grown in more than two years. Although Miss Todd said she’s fully aware they will “rear their heads again.” When they do, she’s going to have a massive party. “Terminal cancer really changes your attitude to life. The little things bother you less.” Until then she still has a few things to tick off that bucket list she was told to start: “I want to still be alive to ride the Sumner Rd again.”

Community service recognised •From page 1 “Our house fell down so we were managing that at the same time as the rebuild of the centre, as well as looking after my mother and my in-laws who all had Alzheimer’s disease.” Taking a key role in fundraising, council liaison and as chairman, Mr McCullough helped oversee the transformation of the centre from a 1950s community hall to a modern, light and airy community centre which is oriented to look over the estuary. It’s a now a busy place, with up to 50 groups and classes using the spaces each week, as well as a dedicated cafe. Friends of Akaroa Museum was awarded for their ongoing support of Akaroa Museum and commitment to preserving the past and sharing the stories of Banks Peninsula’s history. Chairman David Miller said it was “gratifying” to be recognised by the city council. The group had taken on an advocacy role after earthquake damage caused the museum’s closure in 2012. “We’ve been pushing (the city council) hard on the rejuvenation so this is a tremendous acknowledgement of the friends’ work with them and the museum trust board.” Museums like Akaroa were

important because they reflected the local area and its history in a way that large museums can’t, said Dr Miller. “It’s a repository of voices of many former Akaroa residents. It houses items of local and national significance, reflects what’s been going on in the area for the last 200 years and is beloved by the community because it’s for the community.” Paying tribute to the award recipients, Ms Dalziel said their

selflessness and generosity had not gone unnoticed and the city was grateful for their contribution. “It is the people in your community who want to see you or your organisation honoured in this way.  The award is but a small token of the appreciation we have for the work you have done. People like you make our city and Banks Peninsula what they are. And you make us all proud.’’

•From page 1 The brigade covers a 60km radius from Seabridge Rd near Motukarara to the Hilltop Tavern and uses the tanker to carry water to fires. Mr Woods has confirmed a new tanker has been commissioned, but it won’t be ready until after the summer, as it needs to be purpose built. It will be four-wheel-drive and have up to 4000 litres capacity. The current tanker only takes about 2200 litres, Ms Peden said. “He didn’t really tell us much. I asked about where private water tanks were located on the peninsula, but he didn’t have a map of where they are.” She said it looked like the brigade would have to create an

up-to-date area map themselves. As part of a resource consent for new rural buildings, properties must have a 30,000 litre water tank with a firefighting attachment. Restrictions were put in place two weeks ago as a scorching start to summer raises the fire risk, which is already at ‘very high.’ Brigades in Sumner, Governors Bay, Diamond Harbour and Lyttelton don’t face the same issues as they are able to access water from the mains supply. FENZ is an amalgamation of the New Zealand Fire Service and the National Rural Fire Authority. It was formed on July 1 this year.

Trees at school threatened Shock for owners „„ By Sarla Donovan TWO LARGE trees on the former Redcliffs School site could be in for the chop. City councillors voted in September to approve the sale of Redcliffs Park, Beachville Rd, to the Ministry of Education so the school could be built there. The former Redcliffs School site on Main Rd will be transferred to the city council to become a park. The Ministry will remove the current buildings. But the Redcliffs Residents Association is worried the trees – an oak and an elm – could be cut down at the same time as the buildings are removed. It asked the city council if the trees could be placed on the significant and notable trees register. But they were told the trees can’t be added because the register is full. Head of parks Brent Smith said there was “no intention at this stage” to add any more trees to the schedule of significant trees before the next District Plan review. That’s not likely to be for another 10 years as the city has just completed a full review. He said that once the school grounds come under the control of the city council, a resource

LANDMARK: This oak tree at the former Redcliffs School on Main Rd may be removed when the city council develops playing fields on the site. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER consent would be required to remove any trees over 10m. And during the demolition phase, the city council would ask for measures to protect “particular trees” but would not say if that would include the oak and the elm. Association secretary Pat McIntosh said she had seen one city council plan which suggested the trees would be cleared for playing fields. But Mr Smith said a detailed landscape plan for the site has not been developed yet. “There are a number of

configurations of the sports fields that will fit in the space available and a number of them include retaining the large oak and elm in the centre of the school grounds.” Dr McIntosh said she wasn’t certain of the trees’ age but they “looked to be” around 60 years old. “We remain concerned about their future,” she said. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Should the trees be given protected status?

„„ By Sarla Donovan MATURE pohutukawa, cabbage and lacebark trees were chopped up and have been left lying on the ground at a property on Sumner’s Esplanade. Nikki and Ron Twine’s 110-year-old earthquakedamaged house was demolished more than two years ago, but contractors were careful to leave some of the mature trees on the section, including the three growing next to a boundary fence. The couple – who are living in Redcliffs while waiting to rebuild on the site – were shocked last week to discover someone had trespassed onto the property and cut down the three trees, as well as an established potato vine. The Twines had lived at the address for 21 years and the trees were 5-6m high and at least 20 years old. Trunks and branches were left lying on the ground. It was not until neighbours complained to the city council about the fire risk that they discovered what had happened. Mr Twine said it was “pretty

gut-wrenching” to see the damage as trees like that took a long time to grow. They have notified the police and the city council. Police have said they can issue a trespass notice but need evidence to be able to do this. But Mrs Twine said she didn’t have any evidence and didn’t want to prosecute. “I just want people to have a conscience and think about how this might feel for us.” She said she didn’t know why people would want to cut the trees down, as they didn’t block views. •Anyone with information can get in touch with Mrs Twine via facebook.

Wastewater flow higher than thought

WE ARE ON THE MOVE AGAIN... extra discharge, Mr Moore said. “The Akaroa Wastewater Treatment Plant outfall is regularly monitored for the quality of the treated water discharged to harbour and the testing is not affected by flow.” The higher flow also means two further locations – Hickory Bay and Redcliffe Point – have been added to a list of suitable irrigation sites as part of a proposed future land-based disposal systems. Takamatua Valley, Robinsons Bay and Pompeys Pillar had already been short-listed. The city council is looking at options for recycling Akaroa’s wastewater before its consent to discharge into the harbour expires in 2020. Options include reusing the treated wastewater to irrigate

„„ By Sarla Donovan

WASTEWATER flows into Akaroa Harbour are much higher than previously thought. The city council has to apply for a variation of resource consent after finding the old meter was under-reading the discharge flow by about 50 per cent. A new meter has now been installed which will be used to accurately record the flow. City council manager planning and delivery for three waters and waste John Moore said it would lodge an application with Environment Canterbury early next year. ECan would then determine whether the variation of consent would be notified. There were no environmental concerns associated with the

trees or pasture in nearby areas, or to provide non-drinking water for garden watering and toilet flushing in Akaroa. Deep well injection is another possible option being looked at. Mr Moore said the city council is investigating the technical feasibility of the practice and its use in other parts of the country “to determine if it is viable in this situation”. A hui was held with Ngai Tahu to discuss the idea last month and the city council is currently awaiting feedback from that. A final decision on which option to implement will be made in November after further consultation midway through next year.

TO A NEW LOCATION IN FERRYMEAD, DUE TO Plan to put pipe under Lyttelton Tunnel delayed EARTHQUAKE REPAIRS manager Chris Collins said the wastewater pipe was being laid in conjunction with the tunnel’s new fire deluge system, as it provided “commercial and economic benefits” for the city council and NZTA. Mr Collins said the pipe had now been made and was being transported to site.

THE installation of a wastewater line through Lyttelton Tunnel has been delayed. On-site work has been halted due to problems manufacturing the overseas-made pipe. New Zealand Transport Agency senior project

He did not believe the delay would cause work to finish later than planned. “The last city council work package, the section from Heathcote tunnel portal to the pump station in Woolston, is not due for completion until 2019, so there is no urgency around the installation of this pipe which

cannot be commissioned until then anyway,” said Mr Collins. He was unsure if there would be any extra cost to the project as a result of the delay in getting the wastewater pipe. The rest of the project was proceeding “largely as planned”, he said.

“We do not anticipate any additional closures of the tunnel other than those already planned for the deluge project installation.”

Xmas trees galore Ferrymead Rotary Club member Barbara Crooks writes about the organisation’s work at this time of year, including selling Christmas trees at Scott Park, Ferrymead, and Barnett Park, Redcliffs

TOP PAIR: Raylene Hunter and Diane Ritchie took out the President’s Trophy at the Mt Pleasant Bridge Club prize-giving.

Bridge club award winners THE MT Pleasant Bridge Club has celebrated it top achievers at an annual Christmas lunch and prize-giving ceremony. Raylene Hunter and Diane Ritchie won the President’s Trophy for Wednesday night pairs. Louis and Linda Smolar won the Nancy Alabaster Trophy for Friday afternoon pairs. Lindsay Eagle took home the KK Trophy for best average for three night matches held during

the year. The Anniversary Trophy for best average for three day matches held during the year was won by Raylene Hunter. The highest score on a Wednesday night went to Don Le Page and Christine Jackson – 71.53 per cent. The highest score on a Friday afternoon went to Raylene Hunter and Judy Brown – 68.52 per cent. The winner of the Rita Mander

Trophy was Gerard Burgers. The trophy is given out annually to a member who is not on the committee but has excelled with helping to make the club a great place to go and play bridge. The club will start its bridge games again on Friday, January 19. It runs two sessions each week on Wednesday at 7.15pm and Friday from 1pm. For further information, call Kay Goodman on 384 3588.

CHRISTMAS started early for Ferrymead Rotary – during August shoe boxes were filled with clothing, school equipment, toys, special things to love and personal hygiene items. These were given to Samaritan’s Purse which distributes the boxes to children in six countries – Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Samoa, Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia. Ferrymead Rotary’s boxes went to Fiji in time for Christmas. Last year, 8000 boxes were sent from the South Island, contributing to the 11 million boxes donated worldwide. Selling Christmas trees is also a long-standing tradition for Ferrymead Rotary – it has sold them every year since 1993. Members set up bright and early with trees freshly cut on the morning of the sale. After much looking, measuring, admiring and smelling of the pine trees, almost everyone leaves with the perfect tree for their house.

FESTIVE: Buying a freshly cut Rotary Christmas tree is an annual tradition for some families.

Christmas plum puddings were also on sale to benefit the local community and mobility dogs. A Christmas hamper was also put together for a family of five. Non-perishable groceries and presents were carefully selected with special attention to the individual preferences of the children. The Warehouse also collects toys donated from customers and these are delivered by Rotary members to Aviva Family Violence Services. Merry Christmas. •For more information about Ferrymead Rotary, call Kai Tovgaard on 384 9485 or Roger Chapman on 384 1300.

They defeated Lancaster Park Addington by 38 runs at Heathcote Domain in an exciting final which saw a number of momentum shifts throughout the day. After winning the toss and electing to bat first, Heathcote found themselves in trouble early after openers Matt House and James Knight were both removed within four overs at 5/2. LP Addington continued to take early wickets with Heathcote at 44/4 before three crucial partnerships helped steady the ship. Charles Grey (29) and Tommy Sturgess (45) combined for a 54-run fifth wicket partnership before Grey was dismissed in the 24th over. That bought wicket-keeper/ batsman Jesse Ruwhiu to the crease who added a crucial 43 runs. With the score at 179/8 in the 40th over, Heathcote looked destined to be de-

Your Local Views Scarborough playground upgrade Tell us about your Scarborough playground memories. Email sarla.donovan@starmedia.kiwi

The Scarborough playground upgrade was given the go-ahead on Monday, much to the delight of Heathcote Ward city councillor Sara Templeton I HAVE fond memories of the Scarborough Park playground. Not only did I take my children there when they were younger, but my parents took me to play there when I was a child too. In fact, some of the equipment is so old that I actually swung on it 40-plus years ago. Scarborough has always been a destination for the city and this small playground is in the top 10 most used for Christchurch. Most of the equipment is at the end of its life, though, so I’m really pleased to see the upgrade finally get under way. The engagement with the com-

Lanes will be marked to separate cyclists and pedestrians on the Coastal Pathway. Vanessa McIntosh – I always thought the Coastal Pathway was for pedestrians only anyway. Cyclists still have their own exclusive lane on the roadway already. Why don’t the cyclists use that and leave the walkway to the pedestrians? Romy Forrer – The markings will just be ignored like the ones in Hagley Park. If everyone keeps left and is considerate of others (that includes adjusting speed and maybe moving over a little when someone is trying

munity started in late 2016 and while funding was briefly pushed out in the draft Annual Plan earlier this year, a very generous donation saw the project get back on track and it will be recognised with a plaque on site at the opening. Christchurch has signed up to become a Child and Youth Friendly City – part of an international network. As new facilities are developed and old ones renewed we are engaging much better with those who will be using them and, in this case, it involved working closely with children from Sumner to design a playground that they will love using. It has a mix of new equipment,

such as the ‘eagles nest’, and natural play elements using sections of a tree that needs to be felled for health and safety reasons. It also has accessible equipment and a track designed for the kids’ mode of choice for transport these days – scooters. One of the most loved pieces of play equipment in the current playground is the old rocking horse. There was a desire from the community to keep it and so it will be. It will be taken out and tidied up before being reinstalled as a static piece for play. It’s hard to visualise a new play area from a plan on paper, but I know it’s going to be fabulous and I can’t wait to see the faces of the children when it opens in time for next summer.

PLAY: Scarborough playground will have a new mouse wheel but the old rocking horse will stay and get a face-lift.

to get past), there won’t be a problem.

on the road are for commuters that either travel to work or cycle at a higher speed than what is considered safe on a shared path.

Wendy Davie – It’s simple. Keep left when walking or biking, cyclists warn walkers on approach, and pass like you would in a car. I walk here often and have noticed both walkers and cyclists seem to have forgotten to keep left. If people used commonsense and courtesy then signs are not needed, but many seem to lack that in this “all about me” world.

Mary Lovell-Smith – In Japan pedestrians and cyclists share most streets easily, on busy roads cyclists use the footpaths. It seems we just need a mindset change as much as anything. The speed limit on Dyers Pass Rd could be lowered to 60km/h

Sophie Jolliffe – All bikes should have bells. Ting ting, it’s simple and polite. Works in Berlin. Robert St-Denis – Coastal Pathway should be used by walkers and slow bike riders like

Cathy Lum Webb – Definitely reduce speed around the hills. Currently there is a speed limit of 100km/h between Rapaki and Governors Bay and it’s super dangerous with many sharp bends. There are so many boy racers around the hills at night – it’s just asking for trouble – how can you pull them up on speed when it says 100km/h?

Festive Season Survival Tips

ks are y snac Health

C

hristmas is a time for celebration, spending time with friends and family and enjoying festive foods and drinks. Nutrition-wise, this festive fare can be a challenge. Here are some simple tips to help you survive the festivities: • Don’t try to lose weight over the festive season. With parties, families and all the special foods that go with Christmas, it’s going to be just about impossible! Your main aim should be to maintain your weight (using some of the tips below!) • Eat regular meals. If you skip meals you are more likely to fill up on high fat snacks. It only takes a few of these snacks to add up to more calories than your usual meal. • Avoid going to a function hungry, you can easily eat a lot of party food in a short

lar

popu always

Be aware of how much you are actually drinking

time. Have a small snack beforehand like a bowl of cereal, yoghurt or a sandwich are quick and will help fill you up. It will also help if you are well hydrated, so try drinking a few glasses of water before you arrive. • Deep fried foods, crumbed and battered foods, cheese platter and nuts are all high in fat. Choose fruit, vegetable or bread based snacks. • If you are hosting the party, offer your guests a range of healthy snacks. Always popular are hummus or salsa dips with vegetable sticks. • If you are taking a plate, make yours a healthy option. How about a platter of fruit currently in season? • Listen to your body and stop eating when you feel full. • Just say ‘No” to food – mentally

practice strategies to decline food offers. For example: “It looks amazing but I am full” or “I tried it and it was great”. • Chat and mingle. If you are bored at a party you’re more likely to hover around the food table or seek out the serving platter. A good conversation can distract you from the food. Avoid standing right beside the food table or bar while you’re talking. • Consider your drinks, they can add to the calorie count very quickly. Try diluting your alcoholic drinks, such as a spritzer (½ wine, ½ soda). If you prefer spirits, try a diet mixer. Lite beers are lower in calories and alcohol. Remember soft drinks, juices, punches, tonic water and flavoured mineral water can all have similar calories to alcoholic drinks. •Be aware of how much you are actually

True

drinking. Alternate alcoholic drinks with glasses of water and non-alcoholic choices. • Keep active. Join in the Christmas backyard cricket game or go for a walk with friends or relatives. Remember you’re aiming for 30 minutes of physical activity each day. • If your regular exercise class stops over the Christmas break, plan other types of exercise - organise your friends and put a date in your diary. If you do really overdo the festive foods or drinks, take a deep breath and start the next day afresh with healthy foods and some exercise. No fasting - just sensible eating. Remember, a few parties don’t make you overweight, it’s what you do all the other days of the year which count.
