Elusion is proud to sponsor the Special Children's Christmas Party

Patrick Koot from Elusion Electrical Ltd

The one thing every one here at Elusion loves is children. This is the third year we have sponsored the Special Childrens Christmas Party here in Christchurch. Not only do we as a family business sponsor this, our daughter Laura who is a St John's Youth Cadet volunteers every year as a helper. We are especially proud that laura who speaks NZ sign is able to introduce herself in NZ Sign and communicate with not only the deaf children but many special needs children who communicate largely thru sign. It is one of those moments we as a business and family as a whole get to give back to the community.

Laura has also just started babysitting a child who's primary communication is sign language. She is so responsible at 17, she makes us super proud as parents. If you know anyone with children who sign and need a babysitter with great first aid please feel free to contact us thru our business page in the mean time the more work you put thru our business the more we can invest into the Special Childrens Christmas party next year

Christchurch council takes hard line on recycling rule breakers

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Almost 1500 Christchurch households could soon have their recycling bins confiscated as the city council cracks down on people who refuse to separate their waste.

About 180 yellow wheelie bins have already been removed and the council has sent final warnings to another 1450 residents.

To get the bins back, they will have to pay $97.65 and sign a statement promising to abide by the rules. Their bins will be monitored to make sure they keep that promise.

Christchurch City Council has spent close to $1.5 million sending almost 1500 truckloads of contaminated material from yellow bins to landfill since May. That equates to about 41 per cent of all yellow bins.

Do you agree with council's strict recycling approach? Let us know below.

Cardiovascular Risk Screening

Katrina from Healthworks Pharmacy Ilam

Coronary heart disease and stroke is the Number 1 cause of death in NZ with 1 in 20 adults diagnosed.

Over 50% of hospitalisations with coronary artery disease (CAD)
have NORMAL cholesterol levels

There are significant, even lifesaving benefits in early detection of any issues with your heart and arteries.

Why is this test different?

This Gold Standard test uses the SphygmoCor® a scientifically validated TGA/FDA approved Pulse Wave Analyser (PWA), a non-invasive device, used in the top 20 hospitals in the USA. youtu.be...

This test not only looks at your Brachial (arm) blood pressure, it analyses your;

Central (aortic) heart pressure,
Peripheral (arteries) resistance,
Cardiac efficiency (SEVR) and
Abnormalities in heart rhythm (arrhythmia).

We will be able to show you an overview of your heart health and, if necessary, recommend very simple, achievable, pleasant, and low-cost ways to improve your heart health (think: “ increase your Omega 3”, “eat a piece of chocolate-a-day” type of interventions).
