Communities fear closure of swimming pools „„ By Tom Doudney RESIDENTS FEAR their local pools may be forced to close as the district council seeks to enforce strict new health and safety requirements. Selwyn’s six smaller pools at Courtenay, Sheffield, Prebbleton, Leeston, Halkett and Killinchy, have historically operated under a system where users are provided with a key to access the pools during summer. However, district council staff have been meeting with pool committees about the need for a range of new health and safety measures which will now be needed. These include having trained lifeguards present at all times, water quality testing several times a day and other rules relating to signage and storage of chemicals. The district council has denied

having intentions to close any community pools but some pool committees are concerned. The Government’s Health & Safety in Work Act, which came into force in April, means pool operators, including councils, are now at greater risk of being held legally responsible for any accidents which might occur there. The district council’s chief executive David Ward said the discussions it was having with pool committees were about strengthening pools operations to meet the health and safety requirements and ensuring the facilities could operate over the summer period. “We understand how much local communities value their pools, and we want to work with them to make sure residents can continue to swim safely through the summer months,” Mr Ward said. •Turn to page 5

NOTE DOWN March 4 in your diary – it’s a nine and a half hour rock concert at Lincoln. And today (on page 5) we have 10 double passes to giveaway to what will be an amazing concert, I suspect. Mi-Sex, Dragon, the Jordan Luck Band, Sharon O’Neill, Annie Crummer, Margaret Urlich, Debbie Harwood, Jason Kerrison and a few local bands will make it one heck of a concert. It’s bound to be warm, dry and Lincoln, not too far from the city, is a great venue. The promoters are also putting on buses that leave different parts of the district, in the ticket price, if you don’t want to take the car. And speaking of other great events, it’s that time of the year to start thinking about the City2Surf, that iconic event put on by Star Media. To find out how to enter go to page 33 – Barry Clarke

nine bands.

LINCOLN EVENT Centre fitness instructor Linda Miratana has won two national exercise industry awards. Ms Miratana, who lives in Lincoln, took out Group Exercise Freestyle Instructor of the Year and the People’s Choice Award at the New Zealand Exercise Industry Awards held recently in Auckland. As group fitness team leader at the Lincoln Event Centre, Ms Miratana teaches seven group exercise sessions each week, including pump and spin classes. Centre manager Ginny Bowden said Ms Miratana was an absolutely outstanding instructor. “We always knew she was one of the best in New Zealand, now the rest of country knows this too. We are really proud to have a Lincoln local take out these national awards and achieve the recognition she deserves,” Ms Bowden said. “Linda gets around 50 people attending her pump classes,” Ginny added. “She creates a

real sense of community in her classes.” Ms Miratana’s daughter flew over from Melbourne to join her at the awards evening. Five women from her classes were also there to support her. Ms Miratana said she couldn’t have won the awards without the support of those around her. “It felt very surreal to come away with both awards, and it’s just awesome to bring them back to Selwyn,” she said. “I had presented at the New Zealand Fitness Conference earlier in the day and so that, along with winning the awards, made for a very special day.” On top of her fitness instructor work, Ms Miratana also works full time as the assistant manager at the centre.

LINCOLN’S FINEST SUBDIVISION

In Brief CHARGES LAID A Christchurch man, 30, has been charged with driving with excess blood alcohol after crashing a dirt bike he was riding on High St, Southbridge, on November 19. The man was taken to Christchurch Hospital by ambulance and police had to await blood test results before laying charges. The tests showed a reading of 141mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood, almost twice the legal limit. Sergeant Grant Stewart said the man had not been wearing a helmet when he crashed into a ditch on the roadside. He will appear in Christchurch District Court on January 18. PARTY TROUBLES Police shut down a party on Leeston Rd which saw “about 80 youths running amok” on Saturday night, Sergeant Grant Stewart said. One person was arrested for disorder, after police received complaints about noise, fighting and people on the road.

Kiwi flavour to light show „„ By Tom Doudney A POPULAR annual Christmas light show near Prebbleton has opened with a distinctly Kiwi flavour to it this year. The Show at Carl and Maureen Seaward’s Shands Rd property opened on Friday with thousands of individual lights involved. This year’s light show will have all New Zealand music, with a mix of established New Zealand bands such as Zed and more recent up and coming bands also contributing songs. Mr Seaward said they thought using New Zealand music would help give local bands exposure with people from around the country and overseas coming to the show. “A lot of people love it that we don’t do Christmas carols, believe it or not,” Mr Seaward said. “They say ‘we are over Christmas carols, it’s fantastic that we can come out here, enjoy this experience and not be bombarded with Christmas carols’.” Skelter, a predominately Christchurch band, had its song Suffocate featured as part of the light show and even shot a music video at the Seaward’s

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT: The Mintrom and Lyons families from Doyleston at the light show. LIT UP: The band Skelter, from left, Zeke Mitchell-Emerson (guitar), Eddie kiesanowski (vocals, guitar), Robert Daglish (bass) and James Rance (drummer), recorded a music video at the light show, which uses their song Suffocate.

property on Thursday during a test run for the displays. Rolleston band member Robert Daglish said they would probably release the video on social media. Having their music played at the show was an incredible opportunity for the band which was working on its debut EP. “Apparently [the song] is going to play seven or eight times each night and they are expecting that there are going to be at least 1000 people going a night

so everyone is going to hear our song and hopefully we will get more fans from that,” he said. Mr Seaward said other new aspects to this year’s show include a witches display and having a wide variety of animals featured in the displays. These included real creatures and mythological ones like dragons. The Seawards started putting up Christmas lights on their property in 2008 and turned it into a synchronised light show with music in 2011. Last year’s

show had more than 35,000 visitors. Mr Seaward said the event had grown each year to the point where he had lost track of how many lights were used in it. Last year someone from Rolleston rang the police to report seeing UFOs flying overheard when they saw the search lights pointed at the sky coming from the Seaward’s property. This year’s entry fee is $5 per person, with the money going towards funding the show and Mrs Seaward’s medical treatment for her Lyme disease. The show, at 650 Shands Rd, will be open every night until December 30, 8.30pm-midnight.

•From page 1 However, Courtenay Reserve Committee chairwoman Carol Garland said district council staff had clearly indicated to her that they expected smaller public pools, like the one her committee managed at the former Courtenay School site, would need to close. The committee was frustrated after having put a number of suggestions to the district council and being told they would not be adequate. “The Courtenay School Pool has been there 50 years and no one has ever drowned in it,” Mrs Garland said. She believed if the people did not have access to local pools, they would instead swim in rivers and other waterways which actually carried greater health and safety risks. Former mayor Bill Woods has been advocating on behalf of the Sheffield Pool Committee, which has similar concerns to Mrs Garland. He has asked the New Zealand First party to raise the effects of the new health and safety legislation on community pools in parliament.

“What the council is going to do is make it so difficult that the pools will have to be closed because they will be too dare to operate,” he said. Mr Woods said a more sensible assessment of risk for smaller pools had to be made, one which took into account things like the pools’ lack of serious incidents over many decades. He agreed with Mrs Garland that if pools were forced to close, people would swim in other waterways such as the Waimakariri River where many people had died over the years. Members of the committees in charge of the Leeston and Halkett pools both told the Selwyn Times they believed the district council was not aiming to shut the pools down. Halkett Community Centre Committee chairman Ross Hayes said it was instead “a matter of just how they stay open, which is going to be perhaps a wee bit more involved than just buying a key and that’s it for the season.”

Mayor could receive new car „„ By Tom Doudney MAYOR SAM Broughton may be provided with a new $38,000 4WD diesel vehicle. District councillors will vote tomorrow on whether to approve the purchase of a car for Mr Broughton’s use and if so what type of car. The options are a small hatchback, medium-sized car or the diesel 4WD option. Staff have recommended the latter. Mr Broughton acknowledged it would cost the district council more for him to have the car than if he were to take the reim-

bursement option. However, he believed the purchase was appropriate as it would enable him to spend more time focusing on his core responsibilities rather than filling out unnecessary paperwork relating to reimbursement costs. “For me it’s about not having to fill out mileage forms and claims expenses for every trip that I am doing and there is obviously an expectation to be around the district so having a vehicle that is able to take me to the places I

need to be for people is important.” Mr Broughton will take a pay cut in as part of the arrangement, with $3508 coming off his annual $116,331 salary. District council staff estimated that Mr Broughton would travel about 30,000km a year, 24,000km of which would be related to his mayoral duties with the rest being personal use. While the district council would save an estimated $12,740

a year from Mr Broughton’s salary deduction and the reimbursement claims he would have put in if using his private car, it will also incur an estimated $15,502 on tax and running costs such as servicing, insurance, licensing and fuel for the new vehicle. Previous mayor Kelvin Coe declined the opportunity to have vehicle bought for him, choosing instead to use his own. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Should the district council buy a car for the mayor to drive?

FARMERS ARE being reminded that the spread of invasive pest plant chilean needle grass remains a potential problem after its discovery in West Melton last season. Environment Canterbury principal resource management advisor biosecurity Laurence Smith said its presence in West Melton showed farmers everywhere needed to be vigilant. “The seeding season is now upon us,” Mr Smith said. “We need to stop the spread to protect our agricultural industry and environment. Managing on-farm biosecurity is critical for prevention.” Chilean needle grass reduces crop yields, causes animal welfare issues and places trade restrictions on infested farms. About 350ha of Canterbury land is infested. Known sites were confined to North Canterbury until last year, when the infestation in West Melton was identified. Anyone who suspects they have found chilean needle grass should contact Environment Canterbury immediately.

​RSA honours volunteers Mrs Miles has been involved in the RSA for more than 30 years, mainly in the women’s section. Mr Hansen said she had been a fantastic coordinator and controller. “She has been involved in the poppy trust, she has been involved on the committee, she has been involved in every aspect of fundraising that we’ve had, organising functions, welfare work - the list just goes on and on and on,” he said.

„„ By Tom Doudney THREE TEMPLETON RSA members honoured with national awards have put in a combined total of more than 80 years of service through the organisation. Bette Miles received a merit badge, while David Sands, JP, and Bruce Kenyon, JP, received gold stars, at a ceremony at the Templeton RSA on Friday night. All three are Templeton residents. Canterbury district RSA president and Templeton RSA committee member Stan Hansen said such awards were not given out lightly. “It’s encouraging, inspiring and gratifying to know we have these fantastic people out there doing this sort of work for the community,” he said.

had “done sterling work for the community with aspects of RSA business and information and keeping people informed of what the RSA is all about.” Mr Sands has been an RSA member for 23 years and is a past president, manager and secretary of the Templeton RSA. Mr Hansen said Mr Sands was a fantastic organiser and had co-ordinated very efficient Poppy Day appeals. “He is currently our welfare officer so he goes out and looks after those who are a bit down on their luck or have an illness and sees what we can do to help them out on a day to day basis.” Life memberships were awarded to Paul Kissell of Weedons, Neil Ure of West Melton, Val Kenyon of Templeton, Ray Salisbury of Templeton and Bernie Ward of Middleton.

Banking services at Leeston to be trimmed „„ By Tom Doudney LEESTON BNZ customers are disappointed the branch will be reducing its opening hours from early next year. From January 9, the branch will no longer be open on Saturday and will be reducing its week day hours. During the week it will be open 11am to 4pm, instead of the current 9am to 4.30pm. The bank says the changes are due to falling customer patronage. BNZ customer and Leeston Community Committee chairman Lloyd Clausen was disappointed that the bank would no longer be open on Saturdays. “It means that people who work out of Leeston during the week don’t have the ability to go to the bank,” he said. “To take the ability away from people who work out of town to go to the bank is not great for their customers.” BNZ retail regional manager Daniel Barota said it had been reviewing the locations and opening hours of its branches to meet the changing needs of its customers. “Our customers are increasingly choosing BNZ’s digital banking channels to fulfil their everyday

banking needs and a decline in demand for in-store transactional and advisory services in Leeston reflects this fact,” Mr Barota said. “This change positions us well to continue to provide banking services to our customers and the community in Leeston.” All employees would still have a job if they wanted, although their roles would change. “All of our team in Leeston have new roles to consider but their decisions are not finalised,” Mr Barota said.

Serving on boards, committees and helping with working bees are great ways to meet your neighbours. The local churches All of the local churches are friendly places where new faces are welcome. They are melting pots of old established Selwyn families and newcomers like me. Community events One of the blessings of country communities is that we tend to

have a regular calendar of events like country shows, club days and socials, garden tours, church fairs and, of course and most importantly at this time of year, Christmas parades! This Saturday, for example, is the day for Lincoln’s Christmas parade, which is a fabulous blend of rural, urban, youth, classics, fun, food and, of course, a big chap in a red suit. I am hopeful that these and other opportunities will help the citizens of Selwyn, new and old to meet and make friends with each other. We new folk will find that the old identities aren’t snooty or elitist, but really love this part of the world and care deeply about it. They in turn will discover that the recent arrivals aren’t disinterested townies only concerned about an easy commute, but good people who, given the chance, want to make a meaningful contribution to our district. A merry, safe and blessed Christmas to everyone in this beautiful corner of the world!

COLOURFUL CHARACTERS: Brathan Davis (in the reindeer costume), Eliza Allen (fairy) and Lavinia Wann (elf) had a busy time welcoming everyone and handing out flyers at the school gate during the Weedons School twilight fair on Friday. About 2000 people attended the fair, the last in a series of events the school has held to celebrate its 145th year. There was a selection of stalls, children’s games, Father Christmas and a variety of entertainment with band Old Skool playing through to the end of the evening. Fair committee member Sarah Webb said the committee was overwhelmed with how well the fair was supported by the community. “A huge thank you to our sponsors, without these people we wouldn’t be able to run such an event,” she said. It was not yet known how much money had been raised but these funds will go towards a new musical playground.

„„ Mark Barlow, Vicar of Lincoln LAST week I saw a tractor travelling slowly along the main street of Lincoln followed by a procession of SUVs, people carriers and late-model sedans. If ever there was an illustration of the changing face of the Selwyn, this was it. Places like Lincoln, Springston, Tai Tapu, Prebbleton, West Melton and even Rolleston, once small villages and rural service towns, are now becoming dormitory suburbs of the big smoke. This change could produce dissonant communities made up, on the one hand, of people and families whose roots go down deep into the farmland of this corner of the Canterbury Plains and, on the other, of resettled urbanites who work, play sport, shop and socialise in Christchurch; only returning to the country to sleep and do the garden on Sunday. I have found it challenging


SELWYN TIMES

Tuesday December 6 2016

Rolleston resident Jonathan Scott writes about Environment Canterbury’s planting activities along the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River I find it ironic in the paper of November 29, that ECan team leader Helen Shaw comments that the (Selwyn) river was dry because of “an extended period of drought”. ECan aren’t doing much to improve the river, or prevent it from drying up. In fact I would say they are making it worse. If one was to drive down or upstream from State Highway 1 close to where private properties border on the Selwyn, then you would find new holes dug by contractors and new willow branches planted. Planting willows for bank stabilisation shows that ECan is out of touch. The times have changed, planting willows stabilise flood prone rivers as their roots interlock. But the Selwyn doesn’t flood – there simply is never enough water. And the willows will push their roots down deep to hit an already low water table, to take even more precious water. ECan, shame on you. Environment Canterbury surface water science manager Tim Davie responds

ROUGH STATE: Part of West Belt in Lincoln remains unsealed and full of potholes.

Managing river systems is challenging because of the multiple values involved. Willows are invaluable for flood management because of their rapid growth, strong rooting structure and ability to stabilise river banks. However, they use a lot of water, particularly on hot summer days. Environment Canterbury tries to manage in an integrated ways across the different values in a river system. We use willows for flood management while controlling their growth so they don’t have a detrimental effect on low flows.

Lincoln resident Terrance Hancock writes on the condition of West Belt which is unsealed on one side for two thirds of its length north of the Gerald St intersection I made the following submission to the district council’s 2016/2017 Annual Plan. “I cannot see anywhere the council is proposing to finish the road in West Belt, why was a large section of this road left in gravel when upgrading work was being carried out from Gerald St north? I would have thought it more cost-effective to seal this area when plant was being used

for upgrading this road as opposed to leaving it in gravel.” Council’s response was:”The partial upgrade of West Belt on the east side was a requirement of the new developments. The funding of the remainder of West Belt has been identified as part of the Lincoln Town Centre Master Plan.” The council has ‘identified’ this area as part of the LTC Master Plan! How long has this road been in this condition!? Council recently provided $400k at no cost to the ratepayer to upgrade and provide footpaths for a number of towns throughout the district from its

investment income. Unfortunately Lincoln and Prebbleton were not included in this amazing initiative. If council can provide $400k for footpaths in other towns from investment funds it can use the same source to upgrade West Belt, without incurring a rate increase to Lincoln ratepayers. Bean counters use the excuse of increasing rates as a delaying tactic but it does not have to apply to this situation. Time for councillors to become like Nike and tell the bean counters “Just do it.” District council chief executive David Ward responds The council will be reviewing and prioritising the projects identified in Lincoln Town Centre Plan as part of the next Long Term Plan, and will then consult with the community on this work and on project funding.

Our People

Life’s a beach Scott Robertson is gearing up for his first season coaching his old team, the Crusaders. Bridget Rutherford spoke to him about his goals for the season, where he learned to breakdance and whether he is a true Cantabrian yet So what have you been doing in the lead up to pre-season training? I recovered after the week of the Mitre 10 Cup final physically, mentally and I detoxed as well (laughs), it was a good celebration. But it was a great way to finish a number of years of Canterbury rugby. Then in the second week I went over to the Roosters in the NRL to do a bit of professional development and leadership, and work around defence so I could up-skill myself coming into the season. New Zealand Rugby Union has a great relationship with clubs around Australasia, and Sydney had some good surf. It was a great way to transition from Mitre 10 Cup to Super Rugby and start our planning phase. What do you think will be the toughest part of your new role at the Crusaders next season? Probably knowing myself, I’ll bring a lot of energy and creative

new ideas. So I’ve got to make sure I get the balance right and bring what I need, and keep it to the critical few things that will make the difference. The Crusaders have a proud and successful history, does that add any pressure? Expectations are great, I love it. I had it with Canterbury that we’d go and be successful, and with that comes high standards and brings a bit of pressure you can use to create an edge. If there were no expectations I just wouldn’t feel the same. What are your goals for the season? My philosophy is to make people better on and off the field. I just want the team to perform and make sure when we’re under pressure in these critical moments we win those. It’s something we haven’t nailed, and we’ve had opportunities but haven’t taken them. That excites me.

for ‘Razor’ Robertson And you played for the Crusaders and Canterbury back in the day, did you ever see yourself coaching them? Yes. Back in 1996 and 97 I would walk in with a playbook and try and create new plays and see new ways of doing things. It’s the way it is now, it’s just a natural progression. It’s been a pathway; it’s taken a considerable amount of time to get here from retiring nine years ago. I’ve done a lot of hours. Is this a stepping stone to coach the All Blacks? The All Blacks is a totally different level and experience is critical. A lot of the coaches have been overseas and had a lot of different experiences with different cultures and competitions. With the All Blacks you play international teams and you need to understand that environment. Coaching overseas gives you a chance to experience that. I’m in no rush, I’d love to do that but I could see myself coaching afar first. Being a former Crusader, does it make you a bit more patriotic while coaching? Of course – I shed a lot of blood, cartilage and meniscus with the Crusaders. It was successful, I loved it and it made me a better person. Some of my best

mates and memories were with that team, it sounds pretty cliche, but it’s a dream. And you come from up north don’t you? I’m from the Mount (Maunganui). It’s a bottle top question – who was the first person to be drafted for a Super Team. I made New Zealand Colts, and Vance Stewart picked me out and I was drafted and came to Canterbury. So are you a Cantabrian now? People ask me that all the time. I had a great up-bringing and my

TIME OUT: Surfing takes up a lot of Robertson’s spare time.

Better than his brother Beauden? I don’t like to compare them. They’ve got similar skill-sets. For us it’s a wait and see. I think what sets Jordie apart is his mind-set – he’s the ultimate professional and has an incredible knack of performing under pressure. That sets the greats apart. Did you try and get him to stay down here? I spent a lot of time, but his family was first for him. And he’ll get to play outside his brother, his best mate. It was a really hard and emotional decision for him and it meant a lot to him to play for us. When you were a rookie, who was a senior player that you looked up to? I made a lot of really good mates and everyone brought a lot of different things. That group of players that we had is unlike

any group that’s been together for a long time. If you look at the coaches, we had Robbie Deans, Steve Hansen, Wayne Smith and they also had success postCrusaders. I heard a great quote – truly inspiring coaches, or the great coaches, coach a player to become great coaches, and their players become coaches. It was that era where the Crusaders were on the Meadow Fresh milk cartons – did you make it onto one of those? No, I’ve broken my nose too many times (laughs). You went and played in France and Japan following your time with the AB’s, what did you learn from your stints there? The first year in France I struggled. I missed the structure of the Crusaders and I kept asking why do the French do it this way? •Turn to page 14

home is the Mount in regards to childhood friends and things. But I made my adult connections down here. My wife’s from down here and I had my children here. But I’m really fortunate to have red and black in my veins. And you spent a fair bit of time coaching NZ under-20s. Is part of that role to groom upand-coming players? The object is to develop players, on and off the field, because they’re young men and they’ve got to make some big decisions. The other was win. If you’re in the black jersey going to a tournament, you’re playing for silverware. I managed to do it one of the two times. For me, my biggest learning was our loss to Ireland – which some other teams have had too recently – but it’s a different style and the preparation is different for different teams, weather, and the mindset. I’m a better coach because I understand that. Over the years, who is a young player that you’ve watched and thought they had a big future? The most gifted player I’ve ever seen is Jordie Barrett. He’s going to the Hurricanes which is the second toughest thing for me outside the Ireland loss. He’s an extreme talent, and a great kid with great work ethic.

‘I just try to be a dad, not a coach’

•From page 13 But once I figured that out I ended up really loving and enjoying it. I learned French and the French way. I learned a lot of what I do now as a coach. It was the same in Japan, I learned a lot of their traditions. It made me appreciate what we’ve got here in New Zealand, and New Zealand rugby now. There’s a lot of benefits of going away and coming back. Maybe I’ll coach over there one day. How’s your Japanese? My wife’s pretty handy at it, but I can do the basics. And the most important question, where did you learn to breakdance? My mum’s got a bit of rhythm. I never expected to be dancing, it came from my playing days when the hoo hay razor ray song was pulled out. I was put on the spot and got called out and had to front up. If we win I’m more than happy to dance. Where does the nickname Razor come from? It’s a bit of self-promotion, probably a bit like the dancing. We used to give ourselves a couple of nicknames. We’d say I used to cut people in half and my shoulders were razor blades. I created a bit of an alias as Razor Ray and it’s taken its own little

competitions and that sort of thing. She’s the sports coordinator. Is she a bit of a rugby widow? I was away over 100 days this year with the NZ under-20s. But we understand it and she makes it work. We’ve got family support at Sumner. I’m lucky to have my role but we make sure we get away as a family. Sumner was hit quite hard in the earthquakes, did you have any issues with insurance or damage to your home? Yeah, we had a red zone section up on the hill. We had five years in court with the Government, but we got a great result. We can look back and the right thing was done and we’ve moved on with that. We’ve learned patience and a lot about the law. What was the most rewarding moment of your rugby career so far? My first test for the All Blacks. We played Australia in Christchurch and my family came down. I fulfilled a huge goal for myself. Did you win that test? Don’t ask! (In 1998 Australia beat the All Blacks 27-23). We had better move on then, what was your most embarrassing moment? When I played for Canterbury I was a reserve and came on, and

storylines. So I named myself (laughs). And you settled in Sumner when you came down, why did you choose to live there by the beach? I’m a surfer, I love the sea and I enjoy the drive to Sumner. It’s a safe environment and it makes me happy. I’m involved with the great community and it reminds me of the Mount. The kids enjoy it too. Speaking of family, how did you meet your wife?

I met my wife, Jane, at Lincoln. I’ve said this before, but my wife got a double degree – hers and mine. I met her when I first arrived in town and she’s been through all the highs and lows with me. I had 15 operations as a player and she nursed me back to the field. We’ve been through a lot. What does she do? She works at the local school and does extra-curricular sport for the kids and runs sporting

I unzipped my tracksuit and ran on the field and I wasn’t wearing my playing jersey, I still had my warm-up T-shirt on. I was in the huddle before I realised – everyone was pointing at me as I ran on and I kept running. I had to run back and swap it at the next break. Some coaches lose their fitness after they finish playing, that doesn’t seem the case for you? I do a bit of stand-up paddle boarding. It’s great for me and for my strength in my core and legs. I get to the gym and I swim a lot. I have to do it most days otherwise I get a bit edgy. What do you like to do in your spare time? I spent a lot of time with the kids, and going to their sport and enjoying what they’re doing as a family so I connect with them. In the afternoon or the evenings we are either playing tennis, passing a ball, or playing touch. I’ve got three boys, aged 12, 10 and eight. They play rugby, touch, tennis and they surf. They’ve got a really good balance. You’re well-qualified to give them some tips. I just try to be a dad, not a coach. I do coach one of their teams, and I give them tips and help out, but away from everyone’s eyes so there’s no pressure on them.

Victory for Dunsandel pair „„ By Karolyn Boon DUNSANDEL PAIR Brian Chapman and Stu Boon have taken out the Ellesmere Open Men’s Pairs bowls title for a third time since pairing up in 2013. It is the fifth time that Chapman has won the title, giving him the record of most wins since it began in 1990. Played at the Leeston Club, Chapman, the skip, and Boon, the lead, had three wins in the qualifying rounds and so did not play the fourth. Out of the 12 teams which played, only four made it through with three or four wins. In both the semi-final and the final, they played Leeston teams. First, they beat Louie Cooper and Dean Mower before going on to beat the experienced Trevor Kennett

and Colin Lowery 14-9. After the 11th end, it was all tied up at nine all, but on the 12th end, Dunsandel picked up a three and this gave them a good buffer going into the last end. Kennett had an opportunity to trail the jack with his last bowl to pick up a three and force an extra end but just missed it giving the Dunsandel pair the win. Meanwhile, at Diamond Harbour, it was disappointing to only have six teams play in the Ellesmere Open Women’s Pairs, which changed the dynamics of the competition.

Halswell win final game of the season HALSWELL beat Addington in convincing fashion in its final one-day cricket match of the season at Halswell Domain on Saturday. After winning the toss and batting first, Addington were immediately on the back foot with Halswell bowler Geoff Barclay taking a wicket with the first ball of the

match. Barclay had great seam movement and would go on to finish with superb figures of 2-6 from nine overs. Addington limped through to 110 with Halswell’s bowlers having a good day. Mike Chatterton took 3-26 and Thomas McCardle finished with 3-29.

Halswell made a positive start to its innings, with Barclay also staring with the bat. He hit a quick-fire 46 from 21 balls, including four huge sixes in one over. Ankit Jassal, who was promoted into the Halswell senior side after showing some good form in the club’s

second side, scored 43 not out. Halswell scored the winning runs in 17 overs for the loss of two wickets. With the round-robin now over, Halswell did not qualify for the one-day finals. Next week, however, Halswell will host Southern Districts in the final two-day game before the Christmas break.

They were dominant in winning both the Canterbury and South Island Secondary Schools’ Mixed titles; and finished runner-up in the Boys’ grade of the local Super Touch competition back in March. The team has a good balance of experience with only five players attending their first tournament. “Expectations are very high,” explained team co-captains Bradley Morgan and Nick Saunders. “It will be challenging but we are determined to get at least a top four finish which would be our best result ever.”

Explore Selwyn Peak Hill Walk

MOBILE LIBRARY TIMETABLE

This is a challenging but rewarding trek. Peak Hill is positioned on the shores of Lake Coleridge. At its peak, 1240m, it offers a stunning overview of the lake and sweeping views of the valley and surrounding area on a fine day. The track is unformed and natural and is marked out with trail markers. It is very steep in places so sturdy tramping boots are recommended.

Start early as the track becomes shaded in the afternoon. See www.sensationalselwyn.co.nz, under ‘things to do’ and ‘walks’ (Lake Coleridge) for walk information. Time/Distance: 3 hours return Difficulty: Hard How to get there: Peak Hill is located beside Lake Coleridge. Head towards Darfield or Hororata until you meet up with Coleridge Road. Go through Lake Coleridge Village then turn west onto Algidus Road. The signed entrance to Peak Hill is 9km up Algidus Road.

In January Selwyn District Libraries are hosting 12 fun sessions for school age children. From 10-13 January MakerSpace Lego® sessions will run allowing kids to build a great habitat for an endangered species. From 16-26 January more Makerspace #The Flock art and craft sessions run where kids can make and decorate their own flock of birds to add to the flocks of endangered shore and river birds appearing around Selwyn. On 23 and 24 January award winning author Maria Gill will visit local libraries to host four workshops for kids aged eight and over. Children will be acting out a story with native birds and predator puppets, writing a story about an endangered animal, learning how to draw a native bird and looking at how they can help the environment.

Last year work started on stage one of this project which widened and deepened the drain from the wetland outlet by Country Lane through to Manse Road and on High Street between Manse Road and the Showground. Power cables along the south end of Manse Road were also laid underground to allow for future drain widening. Stage two work involves widening the drain on the east side of Manse Road from near the intersection with Country Lane to High Street so it can carry more water. This will provide an improved channel between the two sections of drain upgraded as part of stage one of the project. Stage two work is expected to continue until April 2017. The stormwater upgrade is being undertaken at the same time as roading improvements at the south end of Manse Road. These works include renewing the Leeston Creek culvert under Manse Road, widening the road and creating a footpath on the west side of Manse Road between Selwyn Street and Country Lane. Traffic controls will be in place along Manse Road, Station and High Streets while stormwater and road works occur. The intersection of Manse Road and High Street will be closed from 5-16 December to allow work to occur, and motorists will need to detour via Selwyn and Cunningham Streets.

Season’s Greetings to Residents of the Malvern Community At this time of the year when we spend time with our families it is timely to consider how fortunate we are to live in a community that cares. We would like to give particular thanks to the members of community, hall and reserve committees in the Malvern district for the time and effort you spend in working for the advancement of your community on a wide range of challenging issues. The Board thanks all of you for that contribution. On behalf of the Board, we wish you and your family a happy and relaxing Christmas and safe and prosperous New Year. Malvern Community Board

It’s important for children to continue reading regularly over the holidays to avoid their reading skills declining over the summer break. To join the programme kids need to visit a Selwyn Library, pick up an official reading log and record how many minutes they spend reading each day. They can read anything, anywhere, anytime. More information is online at www.selwynlibraries.co.nz.

Notices

The track begins with a trek across a private grazing paddock before climbing up the side of the hill through sub-alpine vegetation. The track is highly exposed to the weather so walkers need to be well equipped, and is not recommend on a windy day.

December is a great time to stock up on some good books and magazines from your local library before you head away for a holiday. Selwyn District Libraries are also inviting you to read with them over summer. From 19 December until 20 January, you can ‘Stop, Drop & Read’ along with library staff and customers every weekday from 2.30-2.45pm.

Get reading and

learning this summer

Explore Selwyn Peak Hill Walk

MOBILE LIBRARY TIMETABLE

This is a challenging but rewarding trek. Peak Hill is positioned on the shores of Lake Coleridge. At its peak, 1240m, it offers a stunning overview of the lake and sweeping views of the valley and surrounding area on a fine day. The track is unformed and natural and is marked out with trail markers. It is very steep in places so sturdy tramping boots are recommended.

Start early as the track becomes shaded in the afternoon. See www.sensationalselwyn.co.nz, under ‘things to do’ and ‘walks’ (Lake Coleridge) for walk information. Time/Distance: 3 hours return Difficulty: Hard How to get there: Peak Hill is located beside Lake Coleridge. Head towards Darfield or Hororata until you meet up with Coleridge Road. Go through Lake Coleridge Village then turn west onto Algidus Road. The signed entrance to Peak Hill is 9km up Algidus Road.

In January Selwyn District Libraries are hosting 12 fun sessions for school age children. From 10-13 January MakerSpace Lego® sessions will run allowing kids to build a great habitat for an endangered species. From 16-26 January more Makerspace #The Flock art and craft sessions run where kids can make and decorate their own flock of birds to add to the flocks of endangered shore and river birds appearing around Selwyn. On 23 and 24 January award winning author Maria Gill will visit local libraries to host four workshops for kids aged eight and over. Children will be acting out a story with native birds and predator puppets, writing a story about an endangered animal, learning how to draw a native bird and looking at how they can help the environment.

Last year work started on stage one of this project which widened and deepened the drain from the wetland outlet by Country Lane through to Manse Road and on High Street between Manse Road and the Showground. Power cables along the south end of Manse Road were also laid underground to allow for future drain widening. Stage two work involves widening the drain on the east side of Manse Road from near the intersection with Country Lane to High Street so it can carry more water. This will provide an improved channel between the two sections of drain upgraded as part of stage one of the project. Stage two work is expected to continue until April 2017. The stormwater upgrade is being undertaken at the same time as roading improvements at the south end of Manse Road. These works include renewing the Leeston Creek culvert under Manse Road, widening the road and creating a footpath on the west side of Manse Road between Selwyn Street and Country Lane. Traffic controls will be in place along Manse Road, Station and High Streets while stormwater and road works occur. The intersection of Manse Road and High Street will be closed from 5-16 December to allow work to occur, and motorists will need to detour via Selwyn and Cunningham Streets.

Season’s Greetings to Residents of the Malvern Community At this time of the year when we spend time with our families it is timely to consider how fortunate we are to live in a community that cares. We would like to give particular thanks to the members of community, hall and reserve committees in the Malvern district for the time and effort you spend in working for the advancement of your community on a wide range of challenging issues. The Board thanks all of you for that contribution. On behalf of the Board, we wish you and your family a happy and relaxing Christmas and safe and prosperous New Year. Malvern Community Board

Stages three and four of the stormwater bypass include an upgrade of the Showground culvert and downstream drains, and the creation of a swale between Leeston Creek and the wetland. d oa eR ns Ma Pound Road Leeston Creek

SCHOOLS EYE-CATCHING: Artwork by West Melton School pupils is brightening up a gap where a money machine will go at the local Four Square supermarket. The supermarket and BNZ approached the school to see if they would hold an art competition with pupil’s work to fill the space until a money machine is in place. The brief called for pupils to create their own money machine designs with connections to West Melton and its community. More than 70 pupils took part. From these, 12 designs were chosen to be put on display and the winning pupils received Four Square vouchers. BNZ also donated a new iPad Air to the school.

PLAYING THE PART: Greendale School pupils came to school looking a little different last week. For book week, the children were encouraged to dress up as their favourite character from a book. From left, Sam as the BFG, Phoebe as the cowgirl from Pony Pals, Olivia as Dollie from The Suffragette – My Story, Toby as Dragon Knight, and Louis as Wal from Footrot Flats.

GREEN FINGERS: West Melton School pupils, including Elisha, 8, right, helped plant almost 500 trees around the school BMX track. Local parent Emma Smith and a group of pupils were heavily involved in the work leading up to the planting bee, including measuring out the area, researching types of plants, creating a planting plan and approaching Southern Woods Nursery which sold the plants at a discount, delivered them for free and made a donation to the school. Landscape architecture company Xteriorscapes helped with the design and planting and shared information about the plants with the pupils.

Tis’ the Season for Lincoln Christmas Once again the Lincoln Christmas Parade Committee has been working hard to ensure everyone has a great day at this year’s parade this Saturday December 10. Stalls will stretch from The Famous Grouse to The Laboratory and with the main street closed, there will be plenty of space to explore the stalls and the many food options for snacks and drinks. Come and buy some Christmas presents, plants for the garden, treats for Christmas day and support the stalls that make this day possible. Also Lincoln Rotary Club and Lincoln Volunteer Fire Brigade will be having their famous Christmas raffles.

There will be bouncy castles and a train ride on the grass beyond the market carpark next to the Lincoln & District Community Care building. To help spread the fun around town, Santa’s Grotto, along with kids face-painting, will be next to The Cottage Café (formerly Hillyer’s) as well as pony rides and farm animals to pat between the café and Lincoln Pharmacy. This year the Junior Buskers’ Competition will take place outside the Chinese takeaway. The Lincoln Farmers’ and Craft Market will be in their usual spot next to the Lincoln Library.

from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda

Dressing For The Xmas Holiday Season This is the time of year where we tend to have lots of social occasions and need to dress up a little. Parties, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, BBQs and holiday attire become important – so what to wear? There are so many dresses in vogue at the moment from casual day dresses to dressy special occasion wear, so a dress is always a popular choice for Christmas Day and summer holidays. The All About Eve dress, pictured here with a denim jacket over, is a great little throw on dress that can be dressed up or down ($79.95). The Vassalli denim jacket is $145. The vibrant pink and black print ivyblu Gtretchen dress is another that can be dressed up or down and also comes in another blue colourway. This dress is $229 Another versatile and striking dress is the black and white Vargo dress ($199).This dress lends itself to BBQs and parties. Very much in the limelight at the moment is the kaftan and no one does it brighter or better than Augustine. These bright floaty kaftans hide a multitude of sins and can be worn as a dress or over slim leg pants. The striking pink kaftan is the Augustine Quinns fire kaftan and is $199. The neon green, black & white is another by Augustine (Zilla Kaftan $199). Kaftans are worn to any occasion that warrants a little dressing up.

EARLY PRESENTS: Father Christmas can always count on a warm reception at this time of year. But at Flemington’s Christmas on the Reserve, held at Lincoln’s Flemington sub-division on Sunday, the man in red had to share top billing in the popularity stakes with a new children’s playground. The new Flemington Reserve and playground were officially opened at the event. The playground features something for children of every age, from a climbing wall to rides suitable for younger children who haven’t taken their first steps yet. The reserve also has a new enclosed tennis court and half basketball court.

Looking back

Augustine recently released its new plus size range called stella Royal and they offer beautiful colourful pieces in sizes 14 -20. We have shown the pretty pink floral stella Royal samantha top ( $159) with the striped stella Royal Andie skirt ($129) This outfit could be worn to Xmas parties or dinner and would equally be a great addition in the holiday wardrobe. All of the styles shown are available right now at Viva La moda along with many more so come on down and have a look.

News Get ready for Chch’s iconic fun run THOUSANDS OF Cantabrians from all walks of life are starting their preparations for The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero on Sunday, March 19. Entries are now open for the 43rd running of the event. In the past, the 14km event (starting at Centennial Park) has been seen as for runners only, but with the introduction of the very popular Sport Canterbury 6km event (starting at Hansen Park), this fun run is really about movement, whether it be running, jogging or walking. Both events finish at Ferrymead playing fields, which will be full of family entertainment and prizes. The fun run is also free to participants under 10-years-old. Next year’s The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero is proudly supporting Aviva family services. Looking to inspire others to put

The family began its journey to a healthy lifestyle through a Facebook page Hungry4Hauora. It highlights the family’s journey of ups and downs on the way to a healthy lifestyle. Normally very camera shy, Rudolph and wife Telena want to inspire others, especially the Maori and Pacific community. After just two months of regular exercise and nutritious eating, Mr Diaz says he has already noticed a difference in his energy levels and skin health.

Working as a health and well-being adviser at He Waka Tapu, Mr Diaz is urging others who are looking to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle, to use The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero as a vehicle for change. He Waka Tapu had 600 participants in the 2016 event and is aiming to reach 1000 participants in 2017. The family has already set about getting active, regularly attending training circuits with the Hale Compound Conditioning organisation. “A big part of the fitness group we are in is to set goals throughout the year. City2Surf is the main goal for a lot of people in our group,” Mr Diaz said. Getting fit for the 6km or 14km event will be just the start for the family who are looking to get to their goal weights by next October. Mr Diaz is hoping to get from 140kg, which he weighed two months ago, down to 95kg.

Like the town of Rolleston, The Rock has now evolved with this family owned and operated business, recently making exciting changes that are delighting locals and providing just what Rolleston has needed. The Rock’s menu favourites are still available in the bar side of the building however occupying the former Rock Restaurant, there is now a new drinking/ dining area – Quartz Wine Bar and Restaurant. Quartz offers a modern, inviting place with a relaxed atmosphere for those wanting a quiet drink, snack or meal or for groups to mingle over sharing dishes to avoid ‘food envy’. This is also an ideal place for celebrating a special occasion with family and friends. “We have a whole range of dishes, mains and sides designed for sharing – or not. There is really something for everyone,” explains Jacinta Cooney who along with her husband, Josh has joined the family business. At Quartz, guests can enjoy a drink and a sharing plate in a ‘tapas style of dining’. Favourites include Panko crumbed brie wedges with prosciutto and spicy plum sauce, sticky pork ribs, Moroccan lamb meat balls, and Asian inspired pork lettuce cups with a blend of coriander, mint and cashews. One dish surprising even the guests themselves as a favourite is the Balsamic pickled figs with toasted walnut and locally sourced honeycomb on sour dough bread. Also available for sharing or not, are main sized portions of steaks, salads, chicken and the popular Mac’s apple cider pork cutlets, or fish that is cooked French style ‘En Papillote’ – steamed in a paper parcel so it is moist and flavoursome. Desserts can be shared too, with a sharing plate featuring a taster of mango mousse, mini cheesecake, dark chocolate rum truffles with white chocolate ganache, and Kapiti ice cream. Dietary needs are also catered for with diners impressed by the number of gluten free options available. Quartz Wine Bar and Restaurant is not just a restaurant. People can pop in for a wine or craft beer, perhaps have a snack or specially marinated olives as a tasty accompaniment, or stop by for a coffee and dessert. Open Monday to Thursday, 4pm till late, and Friday to Sunday, 12noon till late with lunch available. The Quartz Wine Bar Restaurant has its own entrance right next door to The Rock, on the corner of Tennyson Street and Rolleston Drive.

Crutches no barrier to top fitness award

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart WHEN CATE Grace went up on stage to collect her NZ Register of Exercise Professionals Industry Award, one of the top honours a personal trainer can be given, it was on crutches. While she works to help others overcome their physical battles, she is fighting one of her own. She was diagnosed with arthritis in her 20s, given a Zimmer frame, and told she would probably be in a wheelchair by the time she was 40. Now 42, although she still battles with pain, she runs her own growing personal training business, has helped hundreds of clients, and is still active herself. But she said her life was far from a perfect success story. For a long time after the diagnosis she said she let it overwhelm her, and stayed at home getting more and more overweight and unfit. “Everyone was saying to me you need to exercise, Cate. So I made a conscious effort and went around heaps of gyms trying to sign up, but they looked at me and turned me away,” she said. That was what drove her to start her own personal training business eight years ago – helping people struggling with

of other trainers and people in the industry was both scary and very emotional. “I’m very thankful for waterproof mascara,” she said. She said one of the hardest parts for herself and for many of her clients was when their condition meant they had to give up hobbies. For herself it was playing sport, including netball, softball and touch rugby. It could feel like losing your identity, she said. “I will never play competitive netball again. I probably wouldn’t have now anyway, because I’m in my 40s, but sometimes you still sit there and you miss it,” she said. But in spite of the challenges, she said she had reached the point where she looked at her health conditions as a positive thing. “Without the arthritis I wouldn’t have had opportunity, so I can actually say this is the best thing that has happened to me, because it has led to all this. You have to keep your head above water and think there’s an opportunity here, look for the opportunity not at the pain. So I don’t want the challenges to stop.”

Gardening

Manage daisies to bloom all year round I CAN’T quite recall the exact moment my affair with daisies began. It could have been at primary school where I began making daisy-chain bracelets, or it could have been when I used to help Nana pick flowers for posies. Maybe it was when I started working as an apprentice at Bayliss Nurseries in the mid 1980s. It doesn’t really matter, what I do know is that it will be a life sentence, and that’s not a bad thing. I am rather nostalgic about these generous and giving blooms. These flowers just make me happy from the inside out. In my garden, I have daisies in bloom all year round, even over winter. A few bright blue flowers of the Kingfisher daisy, Felicia

amelloides, sprinkle themselves over the domes of green, along with the bright sunny-yellow petals of Euryops pectinatus. Now summer is here it is all about the Marguerite daisy, Argyranthemum sp. and African daisies, Osteospermum sp. As soon as the temperatures warm up, the flowers buds are triggered into action and the plants will not be without blooms until the end of May, and in some cases, the end of June. Yes, I have a daisy addiction, and I have no intention of trying to curb it. Each season when new ones arrive in the shops, I swoop on a few and extend my collection. As my garden is quite full, the new additions end up in pots and

tubs, which work well as I use them to punctuate and decorate the patio and outdoor areas, and then when the weather turns I can move them to somewhere closer to the house, which is more sheltered in winter. This in turn, gives them a head start in

the spring when they bounce back into life quicker than the ones in the garden, which get no special care. Not all are hardy, so if you are in an area where frost carpets your garden in winter, plant them in pots or closer to the house.

As a cut flower, they last a good week in fresh water. Remove any foliage that will be below the water line and try not to squash too many into a vase at once. Pick them once the flower is fully open, as the buds do not tend to open once picked.

BRIGHT: A posy of fresh daisies always lightens and brightens a mood.These ones are from the new Angelic series.

gardening without guesswork Question:

Is there a trick to growing carrots? I’ve tried them several times with mixed results but often they are all leaves and small roots.

Carrots can be a tricky one sometimes, firstly, make sure you are planting them directly into the garden as seeds. They hate being transplanted, and therefore growth can suffer because of this. The type of soil should be light and open to allow the roots to grow, this may be helped by adding compost. Veggie Garden Mix or Garden Mix are great options for growing in. As they are a root crop, the type of fertiliser that they need is one that encourages root development rather than leaf growth. Superphosphate is excellent for root crops. Once they start to grow, thin any that are crowding the space of another carrot, as well as any small or scrawny ones. This will give your healthier, bigger plants more space to grow. If they are too close together, this will restrict their growth. Don’t forget to establish a good watering pattern. Don’t let them dry out!

Handy Hint Crop rotation If the soil is very rich in nitrogen then the carrots will have plenty of leaves and small roots. If you sow carrots after a leafy crop such as brassicas or silver beet, it will help because these crops use up a lot of nitrogen in the soil, making it a better growing environment for your carrots.

FRAMEWORK: Prune ornamental trees and shrubs to promote growth later in the season.

NATURE’S BOUNTY: Fruit trees should be in full growth mode.

Gardens should now be looking good YOUR GARDEN should be looking lovely, with flowers and foliage adding colour, scent and depth to your garden, not to mention the start of some summer crops such as strawberries, beans and lettuce. For a healthy garden, and in particular vegetable, always try to have good garden practices. This includes garden hygiene such as cleaning up any dead leaves or foliage and regular weeding, which helps discourage pests and diseases. Fruit trees are in full growth mode now and it’s worthwhile applying a side dressing of fruit tree fertiliser, especially with young trees. Water deeply when required to help establish

strong root systems. Mulch around trees to reduce water loss and suppress weeds. As gardens reduce in size, containers on decks and balconies assume greater importance and can be used for growing herbs, mini-vegetables or providing a splash of colour when planted with summer annuals. Being in a confined space, potted plants do deplete the soil more quickly of nutrients, so feed them approximately every 2-3 weeks with fertiliser, and keep them well watered. Summer flowering annuals should be in vigorous growth now and look stunning in the garden. They include alyssum,

ageratum, aster, candytuft, cornflower, cosmos, marigold, nemesia, phlox, portulacas, petunias, salvias, strawflower and zinnias. Keep deadheading (removal of finished flowers) to promote continuous flowering. For ornamental trees and shrubs, fertilise them regularly and mulch to reduce water loss over hot dry summer months and to aid weed growth. Give them a summer prune; especially ornamental trees to help a strong framework for later growth. Don’t forget to mulch your garden if you haven’t already. Here in the South Island try and have this done by the end of the month now that the soil

has warmed up. Mulching is the process of covering the soil with organic matter to reduce water loss, add nutrients and help with weed control. Even if you are the most hands-off gardener this is the most important task to do, especially during the summer months. It’s vital in maintaining a healthy garden, helps protect plants from drying out and regulates soil temperatures. Apply a layer of mulch around plants, trees, and especially pots. As organic mulch breaks down over time it improves soil quality and structure by encouraging micro-organisms and worm activity.

You’re about to head away on holiday so what have you done to ensure you are safe when you hit the road? Are all your vehicles and trailers warranted? Are your wheels at the right pressure? Are your brakes reliable? Have you had your vehicle serviced lately? We know that in the lead up to Christmas we can often forget about some of the important jobs. When you know a quick vehicle check, warrant or service could ensure those we love are safe, it’s good to know that help is at hand at Jones Rd Auto this holiday season. No matter what type of vehicle you drive, Jones Rd Auto and Selwyn Auto can service it. They can handle all makes and models of vehicle from the small runabout, larger family SUV, motor home through to small commercial vehicles. Whether you need a warrant of fitness, vehicle servicing and repairs, auto electrical diagnostics or engine overhauls – the teams at Jones Rd Auto and Selwyn Auto can deal with it. They are also Motor Trade Association (MTA) assured which gives customers added protection. Being a member of the MTA means they have to uphold a high standard of workmanship and service which also comes with warranties on the work they do. New to Selwyn Auto is a motorcycle repair service. These are carried out by a specialist motorcycle mechanic who can also work on farm bikes (two and four wheelers) and can repair any make or model; a service that is rare in Selwyn. Both workshops are also accredited to service fleet vehicles through some of the main fleet leasing companies. For your convenience there are

courtesy cars available and Jones Road Auto also works in with a neighbouring car grooming business, so you can book your vehicle in for repairs or a service as well as a car groom. Lisa and Nigel purchased Jones Road Auto four years ago and in February this year, started Selwyn Auto in Springston. Since then, the businesses have grown considerably due to the top workmanship they provide for their customers. They are also looking at ways to exceed their already high standards and provide more for their customers. This has meant the installation of new equipment and hoists in both workshops as well as the ongoing training of staff so they can use the latest technology available. While the businesses are operated as separate entities, the Flecks share staff and resources. This ensures a quick turnaround of customers’ vehicles and access to a broader range of expertise. This year, Nigel and Lisa have employed more staff. They now have fourteen locals working across the two businesses and are hoping to employ more staff at their Selwyn branch next year. Currently, they have a preapprentice at Jones Road and also hope to employ an apprentice at Selwyn Auto next year.

In addition to looking after the motoring needs of locals and providing employment opportunities, The Flecks provide on-going sponsorship to local schools and sports clubs. “It’s nice to give back to the community,” explains Lisa. You will find Jones Road Auto at 851 Jones Road in Rolleston and Selwyn Auto at 132 Leeston Road (the Springston end). Their friendly staff will be only too happy to help you sort out your motor vehicle repair and servicing needs. Jones Road Auto staff would like to wish all their customers a safe and happy holiday season and look forward to seeing you all in the near future. We are closed from Sat 24th December for our Christmas break, reopening on Monday 9th January 2017.

GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING

Ensuring a safe work place Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider.

Driven Upgrade further enhances Mazda6

„„ By Ross Kiddie AT THE media launch for the CX-9, Mazda New Zealand was upbeat about its product range and its position in New Zealand’s difficult, but buoyant, new car market. Deservedly so, the Mazdabranded product which is landing here now is comprehensive, desirable and downright pleasant to drive in. However, at the media conference I noticed one small glitch, the Mazda6 diesel is performing below the company’s expectation in terms of sales. That really surprised me, but I put it down to a small total market backtrack on diesel powered cars and Mazda, too, are feeling it. However, Mazda can look at the six diesel with a bit more optimism, the entire six range has just had an upgrade and it is a case of making a good car just that much better. I was fortunate enough to get behind the wheel of my favourite Mazda6, the diesel Limited station wagon. As you would expect from a mid-life enhancement, the new Mazda6 is quieter than before, it is been refreshed through the interior and is fitted with a raft of new kit – most of it for safety.

• Price – Mazda6 wagon Ltd, $58,245 • Dimensions – Length, 4800mm; width, 1840mm; height, 1480mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, front-wheel-drive, 2191cc, 129kW, 420Nm, six-speed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 8.7sec • Fuel usage – 5.4l/100km

MAZDA6 WAGON: Upgraded with a wealth of new features for comfort, convenience and safety.

Some of it includes advances to the brake support function, sensing pedestrians and vehicles at increased speed; there’s also the inclusion of traffic sign recognition which will warn the driver of approaching stop and speed signs, and G-vectoring control which operates in conjunction with steering wheel input to produce predictable vehicle handling behaviour. While these advances are mostly unseen, the reality is that the Mazda6 is a more involving and safer car, that along with a dynamic driving experience. Under the bonnet sits a 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine. It, too, has had some tweaks to make it quieter and more responsive. Mazda rate it with 129kW and

420Nm, both outputs delivered at usable points in the rev band at 2000rpm and 4500rpm respectively. Consequently, it is a spirited performer and delivers solid power through the midrange which is why I’ve always been smitten with diesel power, the surge is quite delightful. The acceleration figures are quite entertaining as well, the diesel variant will lunge to 100km/h from a standstill in 8.7sec, and will cut out a highway overtake in 4.7sec. On the subject of figures, when I’m picking up a test car I’m always smitten when it shows in excess of 800km before needing a refuel. The modern diesel is so fuel effective, Mazda claims a 5.4l/100km (54mpg) combined

cycle rating for the twincamshaft, 2191cc unit. Drive is channelled to the front wheels through a sixspeed automatic transmission. Interaction between the two is fluid, the gears change quickly and are smooth, if the driver wants to take control over that process, steering wheel-mounted paddles allow him/her to do that. I had a photographic assignment to undertake at Whitecliffs in the Canterbury high country so I took the test car on a route which then backtracked through Windwhistle and Hororata. The efforts Mazda has made to dull sound in the six have certainly worked, it is whisper quiet on the long straights, and even with large and low profile Bridgestone Turanza tyres

(225/45 x 19in) there is little road noise. I particularly like the way it feels through the steering, it is sharp and loaded with feedback as to how the tyres are behaving in a corner. I guess a lot of that comes back to the G-vectoring control system which learns and works with the driving style to produce a dynamic yet natural motion. The advancement Mazda has made with the new six doesn’t come at a cost, the entire range is priced much the same as the previous generation model which, to my way of thinking, represents good value. The diesel wagon sits tall in the range at $58,245, but with a starting point of $43,795, I can’t help but think the Mazda6 is one of the bargain sedan/wagon purchases in the market. The final process of my daughter moving back home for the summer, from her student flat in Riccarton, involved dismantling her queen size bed and transporting it back to the Kiddie dwelling. I used the Mazda6 for that purpose, and although the bed head was problematic, the task was completed, reinforcing my enthusiasm for the modern station wagon.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District

An eco friendly lifestyle sub-division A new sub-division with a difference is being developed in Rolleston. Coles Fields is the first of its kind where sections average 5,000 square metres and eco-friendly living is the emphasis. A distinctive feature of Coles Fields is the focus on energy efficiency. Property owners will be encouraged to build to a minimum of a Homestar 6 Rating, and recycle their grey water by diverting rain and waste water onto the garden. Included in the sale price is a smart home energy and solar management system (microMAX|Control), which is provided to every purchaser of a section; something that is the first of its kind in the world. This unique technology system was developed and is manufactured by local Christchurch technology company, EnaSolar (a division of the Enatel Group). The system is to be fitted into each house providing visibility and control for immediate saving opportunities on energy consumption whilst future proofing for solar. Work began on the Coles Fields development earlier this year with it now well advanced. People can drive around the sub-division and see what is on offer with little more than road sealing needed in some parts. “Many people are blown away with what they’ve seen,” advises Andrew Taylor from Matson and

FINANCE

Allan Real Estate Ltd who is the representative for the Coles Fields sub-division. “Coles Fields has been completed to a very high standard. It’s landscaping is amazing. The large berms on either side of the road give it a spacious feel while allowing natural rain water to drain back into the aquifers,” adds Andrew. Well over $1,000,000 has been spent on trees, shrubs and fencing, constructed from Macrocarpa posts and rails, which front all properties while each has its own unique entranceway. Coles Fields also has very green fertile land, comprising rich Templeton loam soil with virtually no stones so will be ideal for growing shrubs, flowers, vegetables and a variety of trees including fruit trees; promising an extremely attractive suburb in years to come. All thirty six sections at Coles Fields were released in one lot just two weeks ago. Already, a little over a third have either been sold or recently placed on hold. Titles are expected by late January, for these sections that range in size from 2,500 to 7,000 square metres with a selling price between $375,000 and $520,000. While people can secure a section now, there is no

contracting

time restriction on when they must start their build. This gives those keen on the benefits of country living coupled with the convenience of a nearby township, the chance to sign up for one of these desirable sections before they are all sold out. Coles Fields is located in the north east corner of Rolleston. It is the nearest subdivision to Christchurch and is easily accessed through Levi Park. If you are interested in learning more about this latest innovation in housing sub-divisions, contact: Andrew Taylor, Matson and Allan Real Estate, 0508 SECTIONS or visit the Coles Fields’ website: colesfields.co.nz.

Affordable Lifestyle & Massive Garaging! It is so hard to find properties like this one. An affordable and comfortable lifestyle property that is just minutes to West Melton and Kirwee and an easy commute to the city. With an easily managed 1.6ha (approximately 4 acres) there’s plenty of room for a pony and other pets. The four bedroom and office family home has been extensively updated including double glazing, pellet fire, modern kitchen and interior redecoration. The adjacent triple garage includes an attic room that is ideal as a games room or extra accommodation. An additional three car garage and workshop makes this the ideal property for a car enthusiast or someone who loves tinkering in their shed. With established shelter and fenced paddocks this is a great lifestyle without the burden of a large acreage. Our owners are committed to building a new home in the area and this opens the gate to the country. Call now for further information or hasten to the next open home.
