Dry weather, long grass is causing fire concerns „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding and Andrew King LONG GRASS in the district is causing concern for firefighters as temperatures start to soar. Considerable rainfall in October was followed by the driest November on record creating excellent growing conditions for grass and other material in the Selwyn and Christchurch districts. Rural principal fire officer for Selwyn and Christchurch Darrin Woods said the anticipated return of nor’west winds during December coupled with the increased amounts of fuel, such as long grass, is concerning. “These conditions, combined with increasingly-cured grasses, are a concern for Fire and Emergency New Zealand in terms of the potential of fires starting and causing damage,” he said. In February, a devastating fire which started in the Selwyn District, combined with one that started in the Port Hills burnt more than 2000ha, destroyed 11 buildings and claimed the life of pilot Steve Askin. Last Wednesday a burning rubbish pile caused an 800 sq m fire on Jarvis Rd, Motukarara.

DANGER: Fire and dry grass can be devastating as this blaze in January 2013 shows. Lincoln Volunteer Fire Brigade deputy chief fire officer Roger McLenaghen said it was a difficult fire to put out because it was burning into the pine trees and the grass was very dry.

He said brigades were concerned about the risk of fires with the hot, dry weather forecast for the summer. “There has been a lot of fuel built-up. We have had good

spring conditions . . . people need to be careful,” he said. Mr Woods said fire restrictions could be imposed as soon as this week. “FENZ is monitoring

conditions, and as they trend towards predetermined triggers we are preparing to impose restrictions on the use of outdoor burning,” he said. •Turn to page 7

Selwyn babies in new book

SELWYN IS a powder keg as long, uncut grass and weeds, a wet winter and super dry start to summer make for one big potential problem: Fire. On page 1 today, we report the concerns of the experts who are very keen to see verges and private properties cut back, ASAP. Let’s be careful out there. Christmas might be right on the radar but there’s another big event looming too – the City2Surf. It’s only a handful of months away (see page 35) so it’s time to start lacing up those running shoes and pounding the pavement to get into shape. And remember, it’s a family event: Children 10 and under participate for free. Barry Clarke

NOW Passengers, driver okay after bus takes evasive action ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 3 MARCH 2018

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A BUS driver and his passengers had a lucky escape when they had a close shave with a car in Rolleston on Saturday. The Yellow Line Bus was forced to take evasive action when a car failed to stop at the intersection of Dawsons and Jones Rds, Go Bus South Island operations director Nigel Piper said. Mr Piper said the bus driver NARROW ESCAPE: A bus driver was forced to take evasive action to avoid a collision.

hit the breaks and was unable to avoid colliding with the car. “He did a very good job too, be honest, in steering clear of the trees,” he said. The bus had four passengers and the bus driver on board. Mr Piper said no one on board the bus was injured and he believed the driver of the car walked away injury-free. Bus Truck Recovery owner Nigel Hope said the bus was extensively damaged at the front with the steering box and panels needing to be repaired. He said cars will cross over the nearby Main South Rd railway line where there is only about 10m between the railway line

and the stop sign. “They come across the railway line, have a quick look and keep on going,” Mr Hope said. In 2015, a similar accident happened at the intersection when a concrete truck rolled into a hedge after it was hit by a van load of tourists who failed to stop. “It is not the first and it won’t be the last,” Mr Hope said. He said the intersection may need a solar-powered flashing LED warning sign. But Mr Piper said fortunately these kind of incidents involving buses were uncommon. Police were unable to comment on the incident yesterday.

Wine swigging driver caught four times the legal limit „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A MOTORIST believed to be drinking from a wine cask was stopped by police near Rolleston and was found to be nearly four times the legal driving limit. The 41-year-old woman was

Growth in Selwyn triggers rise

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding RETAIL SPENDING in Selwyn continues to boom. Latest figures show spending for the year ending in September was up 10 per cent on the previous year. Selwyn’s growth far outstrips the average for New Zealand (3.8 per cent) and Canterbury (2.2 per cent). The information was released in Infometrics’ latest quarterly monitor report showing figures in the year to September. Kelvin The latest Davidson report from economic consultancy group Infometrics’’ said a key driver in retail has been rapid growth in Selwyn’s population. The district’s population is projected to grow to 68,937 by 2025. The report said the rise of 3100 in the year to June equated to the growth of 5.5 per cent, the second fastest rate of the country’s 67 authorities only behind Queenstown which grew by 6.9 per cent.

DEVELOPMENT:

The Vernon Drive retail centre is planned to open in March.

“Selwyn has seen this huge influx of people. It is not just in the last 12 months it is over a very long period of time. As soon as you get more people in all these things will naturally pick up,” said Infometrics senior economist Kelvin Davidson. The growth and spending comes as new commercial developments come online in the district, particularly in Lincoln. The 2400 sq m Vernon Drive

retail centre is planned to open in March. A 1600 sq m retail precinct in Rosemerryn is being build on the corner of Edward St and Eastfield Drive. Construction is due to be completed by February. MB Cook commercial and industrial specialist Mary Cooper said she could not give a timeline for when all tenants for the development would be confirmed for Rosemerryn.

But she said the development has had expressions of interest from several businesses and it was working to get a mixture of tenants including a restaurant, hairdresser and possibly a physio. Rosemerryn will have seven shops, a restaurant, a gym and covers 1ha of land. Gym Flex Fitness has been confirmed for the development so far.

Outlets confirmed for Vernon Drive are Plus Fitness 24/7, physio Motus and Monteith’s Brewery Bar under the name of The Flaming Rabbit. “The demand for people wanting to be in Selwyn is huge and Lincoln is no different,” Vernon Drive leasing agent Jeff Vesey said. The Vernon Drive development has received more than 40 inquiries from businesses about the site. There were only two sites left for leasing, he said. Meanwhile, the latest Infometrics report has outlined commercial accommodation as falling by 12 per cent in the year to September. One reason for this could be the growth of private listings on home-stay network Airbnb which has grown by 129 per cent in Selwyn over the past year. Data from Infometrics showed as of September, Selwyn ranked fourth in the country for the ratio of Airbnb listings to the number of units available in the commercial sector. It sat behind Waikato, Auckland and Porirua City – which ranked at number one.

in retail spending But Mr Davidson said the data could not conclude how often Airbnb was used because there could be properties listed with no one using them. “But I think it is a pretty reliable guide. Airbnb is a pretty significant trend,” he said. But Mr Davidson said although commercial accommodation activity has fallen it is still at a higher level than any point prior to 2015. “The reason there was a slow down lately was because it had grown so quickly before that . . . I don’t think it is Mary Cooper necessarily a concern,” he said. Mr Davidson said other reasons for the commercial accommodation slow down may be due to a flow-on affect from the earthquakes with people still feeling the area is broken. He said direct flights from Auckland to Queenstown avoiding Christchurch could be another reason. The report showed traffic

A NEW bar in Lincoln will be named after one of Selwyn’s largest fires more than 80 years ago. The Monteith’s Bar and Brewery in the Vernon Drive retail centre, will be named The Flaming Rabbit. It will be named after a large 1930s scrub fire in Rolleston, spread by nor’wester winds and running rabbits. Bar owner Paul Goodwin said workers were resealing the Main South Rd when they set fire to the road. “The nor’wester was blowing and it spread across the country all the way through Ellesmere. “As the rabbits were running they were catching fire and spreading the fire,” Mr Goodwin said. Firefighters struggled to contain it.  The fire destroyed kilometres of fencing and a large amount of forestry. Mr Goodwin said the full story of the fire will be on display in the bar when it is completed.  The bar is planned to be finished in February. Mr Goodwin also owns the Merrin Street Brewery Bar in Christchurch.

Police work through list of attack suspects „„ By Andrew King POLICE ARE working through a list of suspects as they try to solve the brutal assault and attempted drowning of a 15-year-old which happened more than a month ago. The victim was viciously attacked by a group in Rolleston after a fireworks display on November 4. They dragged him to a water race and held his head under water. Some in the group chanted “drown him”. Police are investigating nominations from mem-

bers of the public who have come forward with information about potential offenders, who are a similar age to the victim. “Due to this, police are making extensive inquiries and working through the appropriate channels to investigate this thoroughly,” Detective Constable Mark Burrett said. The Selwyn Times has learned police have been given names of suspects and private Facebook messages of an apology to the victim. “Police would like to thank the members of the

public who have offered information as this community assistance is very much appreciated and integral to the investigation,” Detective Constable Burrett said.

After being dragged to the water race, he broke free of his attackers and ran off, collapsing close to his home.

played a lot of first class cricket and Malcolm Walker used to play for Otago, so there was a good sprinkling of former first class cricketers. How many days is it played over? It’s a five day tournament with a rest day in the middle. I guess you guys would need that at your age. I was fine. I’d actually trained six days a week for six months before it. I know it sounds a bit ridiculous but we all put in a lot of training. When we went to the provincial tournament in Wellington we discovered that by the end of the competition we were down to about six or seven fit players and we had a reasonable sized squad. We realised to do this we needed to get fit. That many guys in that age bracket together would create a bit of a party atmosphere wouldn’t it? Oh yes it was, but interestingly most of our guys were very focused because we had a job to do. On the last night we had a big get-together with everyone. They

How did you make the New Zealand team to play in Australia? In January, Canterbury put in a team for the national tournament. We went to Wellington to play the other provinces and we won. From that tournament they selected players to make up the two New Zealand team to go over and play in the Australian tournament. How did your team get on? We won three of our four games. There was over 500 players at the tournament and this year they also ran a separate over-70s tournament. They pick an Australian national over-60 and 70 team that play against England. Where there any blast from the past cricketers there? The captain of the top New Zealand team was Ewen Chatfield. We had John Cushen, who played domestically for Otago and Auckland. Bevan Guthrie played for Otago. We had one guy who played for South Africa. 63 NOT-OUT: Jeremy Wilson has returned to his Ladbrooks office after his first experience representing New Zealand at the Andrew Nuttall used to play for Canterbury.

I can’t say I did as well as I thought I would. I had terrible luck. I got run out. You name it, it happened, but that’s cricket. How far back does your cricket experience stretch? Since a kid. I played for a club that’s now called Southern Districts in town, I then played for Weedons in the country competition and now I play for The Willows Cricket Club. I saw that Richie McCaw was part of a team out there recently. Did you get to play with him? No I missed that one. I’ve played with Ben Blair a couple of times and Kieran Read. We play a lot of secondary school teams which is great.

for veteran batsman How long have you been playing at The Willows and how do you get into that team? I actually just filled in for Chris Harris’ brother Ben one day because he had to pull out at the last minute and it’s just carried on from there. The one aspect of cricket there that I think is fantastic is that it’s played in the right spirit. There’s no niggle or nonsense, everyone there is there to enjoy themselves. It’s about the ethos of the game and at The Willows if you carry on like a halfwit you don’t get invited to play again . . . nothing is said, you just find that suddenly you’ve been left off the list. I understand you come from a bit of a sporting family. Yes, I’m one of five boys and four of us have represented New Zealand in different sports. My youngest brother Richard played 50 games for the All Whites. He was in the 1982 team that went to Spain. He was also a New Zealand secondary school cricket rep too. He got a contract to play football overseas so he concentrated on football. That’s one brother, what other brothers have repre-

sented New Zealand? Robin played ice hockey for New Zealand. He played and referred at international level for quite a few years. He lived in Canada for a number of years and had been a very good football goalkeeper so they put him in goal on the ice and then he came home and represented New Zealand. The there’s John who was involved in both bodybuilding and weightlifting. I’m obviously the most recent to represent New Zealand” Who missed out then? My brother Lindsay. He was a very good football goalkeeper as well but he never got past Canterbury level.

Did the five of you play in many teams together? At one stage all five of us played for Weedons Cricket Club and our father was the scorer. Who was the star for the team? Well, when Richard was in the New Zealand team he came back once mid-way through a two-day game. In the country competition you could change a couple of players during a game because in the farming community a couple of guys may have had a harvest on or something. Anyway, we were playing Southbridge and in a bit of trouble. He came back and

GOOD TIMES THIS

Sizes 6-22 scored 170 in an hour and a half, turned the game around and we won it. Have you played other sports over the years? I played rugby for Suburbs for three years before injuries stopped me. We had a very good team back then. We had three All Blacks in it, plus Mike Cron who is the All Blacks’ scrum doctor. Any other sports? I play tennis at the Cashmere Tennis Club. I played my first game of interclub last year at 62. I’d played previously before I was 10 but then concentrated on cricket. I got invited to join a group that hit at Cashmere on a Thursday night and I love it. We better talk about something other than sport . . . you work in advertising? Yeah since leaving school. I’ve been marketing manager for companies like Hertz, Fairydown, then I spent several years in marketing at CocaCola and for agencies. We’ve now had our own business for over 20 years. Are your offices in town? No. My wife Julie and I built offices at our property in Ladbrooks and we work from here. It’s good I can gaze out the window and look at my cattle.

News In Brief

LIQUORLAND HEARING A decision over whether a new bottle store can open in Lincoln is expected to be made in a few weeks. A hearing was held last week after an application was made by SJTP Ltd for an off-licence Liquorland bottle store on Vernon Drive, opposite New World. A district council spokesman said the application is expected to take a few weeks. The bottle store has received 161 objections. CORRECTION On November 29, Selwyn Times reported more than 400 cars and trucks were on display at the district’s first Jones Rd Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and Family Fun Day and about 800 people attended the event. That was incorrect. There were more than 850 registered cars on display and between 5000 to 6000 people came to view the event. Selwyn Times also reported the funds raised from the day would go to St John Ambulance Rolleston. This was also incorrect. All proceeds will go to St John Selwyn Central which covers a large area including Leeston, Lincoln, Southbridge and Rakaia. The day also featured trade displays, bands and children entertainment. Selwyn Times apologises for the errors.

Team to protect vulnerable children „„ By Andrew King and Georgia O’Connor-Harding A WORKING group has been set up as a programme aimed at supporting vulnerable children plans to move into Selwyn. The Ministry of Vulnerable Children, Oranga Tamariki is planning to bring its children’s team approach into the district as part of an expansion project. But it could be another six months before the programme is launched. The confirmed working party is to be made up of 10 members from the district council, education, health, police, the ministry and non-government organisations. It comes as populations in Selwyn are projected to grow to 68,937 by 2025. Canterbury children’s team director Ross Haggart said the programme’s expansion activity plan was discussed at its meeting last month. The programme aims to support at-risk children who do not need a statutory care and protection response but still need intensive, cross-agency support. “The children’s team is an approach rather than a service. It is about using the existing services and resources that are available

HELP: A working group has been set up as part of a programme aimed at supporting vulnerable children plans to move into the district. ​ to wrap plans around vulnerable children,” he said. Mr Haggart said it is also about involving families in making those plans. He said the group is currently looking at four areas for the programme – commitment, capability, capacity and the programme’s operational activity. In the following months, the

working party will be looking at the demographic requirements in the area to work out what the needs of the children are as well as engage with mana whenua. The Canterbury children’s team has been in place since December 2015 as has expanded from Christchurch into places including North Canterbury and Ashburton.

Statistics showed the total number of notifications including police family violence referrals to the Ministry of Vulnerable Children between July 2016 and March this year in the Christchurch west area was 1537. The next meeting with the working party is to be held in February.

ADVERTORIAL

Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motorfest resounding success A celebration of all things motoring brought people out in their thousands to Rolleston on November 26. The Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motorfest proved to be a resounding success with more than 850 vehicles on display and about 5000 people through the gates. The event was used to fundraise for St John’s Ambulance for Selwyn Central – which saw about $25,000 raised for the cause. Selwyn District Councillor Craig Watson said the committee was blown away with the response from the community. “We were expecting about 400 cars and about 2000 people, we knew there would probably be more but not to the extent we saw on the day.” What was one of the biggest highlights for the committee was the support of the community and other stakeholders, given the event was in its first year. “People put trust in us that it was going to work, so we are indebted to them for coming and showing their vehicles or taking part in the market or food stalls.” The resounding comments back from people who

attended were how it was a real family day with lots of free activities to enjoy. “People said they were able to keep the kids entertained for a whole day not just a couple of hours.” Many also enjoyed the Emergency Services display of vehicles with historical ambulances sitting aside the latest Generation 2 ambulances as well as fire engines and police vehicles. Children were also thrilled to be “clocked” by police speed guns – to see how fast they could run, said Cr Watson. What was different about the day was there was no focus on one type of vehicle. It was a celebration of each person’s “pride and joy” whether they were vintage, classic, two-wheels, four wheels or more. It is hoped another event will be held but will be dependent on future support. “Whatever the community wants it to be we will be able to do it but we will need their support. We will need volunteers to come on the committee and help us to organise it because as you can imagine there was quite a lot of work involved.”

Books to help kids stay safe

THE DISTRICT council has launched a new resource to help children and families make sure they’re prepared for emergencies. It has developed an emergency preparedness booklet which teaches children about what to do in an emergency and encourages households to make their own emergency preparedness plans. District council community resilience co-ordinator Sue Jenkins said the book has been well received at Lincoln Primary School, where they were recently presented to 160 year 5 and 6 students. “Students enjoyed visiting the emergency command bus and meeting ‘Stan’, the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management mascot. “We hope to visit more Selwyn primary schools in 2018. We are encouraging principals to make time in the busy school day to

THe booklet is filled with fun, informative activities for children to complete relating to different scenarios. These are worked through using the six IMPACT characters (Izzy, Mika, Paul, Ashley, Carter, and Tamati) created by MCDEM. When each activity is completed, the What’s the Plan Stan sticker can be added to the page where indicated by Stan, MCDEM’s mascot dog. Children complete the six activities to receive all the Stan

Parents are encouraged to go through the booklet with children and discuss each section and activity.

Springfield’s donut gets safety upgrade „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding SPRINGFIELD’S donut is undergoing a safety upgrade. The six-tonne landmark’s concrete base has been identified as a fall hazard and in need of an upgrade. A district council spokesman said under Standards New Zealand the donut is required to have a safety surface which provides impact absorbency so people could climb on it. The new safety surface has been ordered and is expected to be installed before the end of the month. The district council spokesman said it did not have the total cost of the safety surface as it had not been installed yet. The donut was last replaced in 2012 after an earlier version was damaged by fire in 2009. The original donut was gifted to the town by 20th Century Fox in 2007 as part of The Simpsons movie launch. It also celebrated the cartoon’s main protagonist Homer Simpson’s love of donuts.

SHOW-STOPPERS: Elliot Cattöen-Gilbert, 21 months, and Jessica, 2, with the Babies are Brave book, a district libraries publication which will go in a baby pack to be distributed by Plunket.

Selwyn babies in new book SELWYN DISTRICT Libraries has launched a new book featuring local babies. Babies are Brave is a bi-lingual Māori/English book, featuring Waikirikiri tamariki. The book will be part of the free district libraries baby pack that will be rolled out next year to grow and spread a love of reading throughout the district. The baby pack will be distributed through Plunket to Selwyn newborns.

Babies are Brave is also available now for purchase at the district libraries. Staff held a book launch at the Lincoln Library and invited the children featured in the publication along for a celebration, with cake and a story-time session with the new book. Libraries manager Vicki Carlyon said research shows early exposure to books and stories substantially contributes

to success in early literacy. “There are strong links between literacy, school performance, self-esteem and life chances with poor literacy skills being linked with lower education, earnings, health and social outcomes,” she said. Staff hope this initiative will be as successful as Bookstart, the world’s first book-gifting programme which began in 1992 and today reaches children across the United Kingdom. LEARNING: Hemi, 15 months, and his mum Savannah Tukariri.

VERSATILE: Artwork from year 13 student Leecia Johnson.

Art on show at Ellesmere College „„ By Nicole Ashby SHARING student success is the main aim for the inaugural art exhibition at Ellesmere College. Junior and senior students have created a range of artworks from creative junior projects to senior art portfolios. The students have created original pieces of work which they are now able to share with friends, family and the community. Said the school’s art teacher Katrina Lilly: “Exhibiting work can make anyone nervous. Essentially you are putting your work out there for compliments or criticism. “Being able to take both with equal measure is a skill that takes practice and what better place to start than in an environment where the students can feel safe.” A percentage of each of the sales goes to the Ellesmere Art Club for future events and the development of art-centered experiences. A range of artworks will also be for show only. Year 13 student Leecia Johnson has created art based on the theme of wildlife poaching. “I picked this theme because I am passionate about wildlife and wanted to try and raise aware-

ness about the horrible things that happen to these amazing animals.” She wishes to carry on with this work in the future by going into animal conservation where she can experience these problems first hand and try to help eliminate them. The exhibition opened last

night at the Ellesmere College Wilson Room. Entry is by a gold coin donation. The event will run until 3pm on Friday. Pieces purchased will be available for pick-up on Friday. A successful exhibition this year will allow the event to grow and continue in years to come.

Bringing Xmas cheer to less fortunate „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding HEARTS WILL be warmed this Christmas with Lincoln High School junior students dropping off hand-crafted cards and shoe boxes to the less fortunate. Year 10 students are gifting cards to people in retirement homes across New Zealand who do not receive Christmas wishes. But the entire community will have the opportunity to spread the Christmas cheer with an official post box set up at the school’s office for anyone who would like to create a card. It comes as part of a nationwide programme Sending Love which was set up by Auckland mother Hannah Rodgers. The initiative encourages communities to make a festive gesture to others experiencing loneliness over Christmas. It is hoping 16,000 cards will be gifted to the elderly nationwide and has post boxes located across the country. “We sort of felt it was more what Christmas should be about,” assistant principal Kylie Wissel said. But it is not the only gesture the school will make with year 9 students currently building shoe boxes to gift to Women’s Refuge New Zealand. The boxes will contain necessities such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors and gifts for children. Mrs Wissel said every year the school does something for the community. The idea for the school to get

on board with the Sending Love initiative was put forward by teacher Christine Fildes. The entire shoe box Christmas programme was established by assistant principal Marama

Lynch and has been running for several years. Last year the school dropped off shoe boxes full of toys to Cholmondeley Children’s Centre in Governors Bay.

Mrs Wissel said students enjoyed going out to Cholmondeley so much last year, they are asking if they can deliver the cards and shoe boxes again. About 500 students are taking part in the whole programme. Anyone wishing to drop of a handmade card at the school’s office need to do so before December 15.

TIPS FOR WRITING YOUR CARD: •Fill your card with love. •Make it as creative as you can. •Ensure it has a legible message. •Keep your envelope unsealed to give the rest homes discretion to check cards if they choose. •Try to avoid religious quotes – your recipient may not be religious

Lincoln pupils have fun on the water SPLASH, SCREAM, shrieks and laughter – those were the sounds of about 180 children having fun on Lake Rua, Harewood, last week. As part of an education outside the classroom trip, Lincoln Primary School year 5 and 6 pupils spent a day out on the water. The day was organised by Simon Rutherford, of Kore Education, along with four adult coaches. The pupils had the opportunity to learn how to get in and out of kayaks, paddle, raft and walk along the top of boats tied together.  They also learnt to balance on up-turned Optimist dinghies and swam under the dinghies to see if there was an air pocket underneath.  Pupils were encouraged to put themselves out of their comfort zones while wearing life jackets and learning other water safety skills. When the pupils arrived at Lake Rua, they were split into three activity groups which rotated over three different activities. Year 6 pupil Shayna said it was a great day and the pupils had an awesome time learning about water safety while paddling kayaks and rafts as well as jumping in and out of the water. Deputy principal Lara Taylor said the aim was to show pupils

Darfield-South Malvern dominate DARFIELD-South Malvern ripped through the Lincoln top order in a dominant seven-wicket victory at Lincoln Domain in the Canterbury Country premier one-day compeititon. The home side batted first and found themselves in recovery mode early as Callum Bettington and Anoop Surendran tore their way through the Lincoln batting line-up with three wickets each. Lincoln were in trouble early at 35/5 and never recovered, eventually being dismissed for 79 in the 30th over. Bettington finished with figures of 3/22 and Surendran with 3/21. Toby Kars, Chris Warner and David Beatty also

claimed wickets for DarfieldSouth Malvern. The visitors suffered an early hiccup when Michael Pauling and Sean Carston both fell early to leave Darfield-South Malvern 5/2. From there it was smooth sailing with Warner finishing unbeaten on 47 to see his side to a seven-wicket win. In other results, LeestonSouthbridge kept their perfect season going thanks to a gamewinning century from former Dutch international Tim Gruijters at Cheviot Domain. Gruijters made Cheviot suffer in the searing heat as he blasted an unbeaten century that would prove the difference between the sides.

Lincoln batsmen to claim victory Gruijters made 119 not out off 120 balls as Leeston-Southbridge reached 207/6 in their 45 overs. Jack Hyde was the pick of the Cheviot bowlers, taking 3-11 off nine overs. In reply, Cheviot were always chasing the game, especially after losing Canterbury Country representative Andy Burnett early. Gruijters was just as effective with the ball in hand, taking 4-17 with his right arm off spin. Competition rivals Sefton are still nipping at LeestonSouthbridge’s heels with a comfortable win over OxfordRangiora thanks to a deep batting display.

Injured Matt Rowe top-scored with 49, but Lance Taylor, Nigel Granger, Andrew Laffey, and Ollie Bragg all chipped in with valuable runs as the home side made 222/7 in their 45 overs. Paceman Tom Dwyer picked up three wickets. In reply, only Dave Fulton, and later Dwyer, prospered as Oxford-Rangiora’s run chase fell 77 runs short. Weedons kept their top four hopes well and truly alive with a 13-run win over Southbrook at Weedons Domain. Batting first, Weedons scored 246 runs with handy totals throughout the order. Opener James Richards got

them off to a positive start with 67 before Todd Inness smashed 76 off just 63 balls. Fraser Austin then claimed the prize wicket of Shanan Stewart, trapping him LBW for two, as Weedons got their defence off to a perfect start. Canterbury rep Jack Boyle batted serenely for his century but when he was bowled by Josh Watson for 119 off 138 balls in the 43rd over, Southbrook’s chances of victory were over. Short scorecard: •Lincoln 78 (B de Haan 15, J Harden 14; Surendran 3-21, C Bettington 3-22) lost to Darfield–South Malvern 79/3 (C Warner 47, N Jenkins 30; M Elliot 1-6, H Paterson 1-17, B

de Haan 1-24). •Leeston-Southbridge 207/6 (T Gruijters 119no, T Field 28; J Hyde 3-11, B Rayner 2-33) beat Cheviot 181 (J Murphy 42, S Burnett 31; T Gruijters 4-17, T Field 2-22). •Sefton 222/7 (M Rowe 49, A Laffey 43no, N Granger 27, L Taylor 27; T Dwyer 3-47, A Mitchell 2-27) beat OxfordRangiora 145 (D Fulton 46no, T Dwyer 21; A Laffey 4-39, H James 2-16, B Cross 2-19). •Weedons 246/6 (T Inness 76, J Richards 67; D Boyle 2-32, M Brine 2-34) beat Southbrook 233 (J Boyle 119, T Rodden 32; J Richards 3-52, J Watson 2-11, F Austin 2-37).

Kim’s

PODIUMS: Jaden Ransley (53) and Jack Milligan (17) battle for second behind Michael Scott in the opening race at Taupo. ​

Fashion Quarterly from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda

Dress For Christmas Christmas is nearly upon us and is a great excuse to buy a new little something to wear on Christmas day and beyond. many women like to buy a new dress for Christmas and there are some lovely colourful pretty dresses on offer perfect for the occasion.

Milligan, Ransley race to podiums in Taupo round „„ By Gordon Findlater PREBBLETON racers Jack Milligan and Jaden Ransley came home with a string of podium finishes from the second round of the Toyota 86 Championship in Taupo at the weekend. Milligan, 21 and Ransley, 15, both finished on the podium twice in three races at Taupo’s Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park. Milligan – who came into the round sitting second in the championship – has kept his title hopes well and truly alive with a consistent weekend to now be third in the championship. But, more importantly, he’s just eight points behind leader Connor Adams. “It’s a good haul of points for us. I wasn’t happy with qualifying but we made some changes and did well to make our way up the field in the opening race,”

said Milligan. In Saturday’s opening race, Ransley secured the best result of his young 86 championship career, finishing second. He crossed the line behind 23-year-old Michael Scott and did well to hold off a charging Milligan who had to battle for third. “It’s getting really tight at the top now. Jaden had his car really dialled in and we had a good wee battle,” said Milligan. In race two, Milligan took a brief championship lead when he finished second behind Adams, who led from start to finish. Ransley also continued his form at Taupo to finish third. The final race of the weekend saw previous championship leader Tom Alexander stake his claim. Ransley and Milligan were unable to complete a weekend of podiums

finishing in fourth and fifth respectively. However, both return home with a valuable collection of championship points. The pair will both go into the next round of the championship with high hopes at their home event in Ruapuna from January 12-14. “It should be a good old battle at Ruapuna. It’s an event I want to go well at and other local guys like Jaden and Tom will be really quick,” said Milligan. Championship standings: Connor Adams 359pts, 1; Tom Alexander 357pts, 2; Jack Milligan 351pts, 3; Michael Scott 309pts, 4; Jaden Ransley 298pts, 5; Ben MacDonald 278pts, 6; Jordan Baldwin 274pts, 7; Bramwell King 201pts, 8; Sam Wright 188pts, 9; Reid Harker 161pts, 10. 

Lucia performs beyond her years to take tennis silver „„ By Gordon Findlater PREBBLETON School’s Lucia Gale (left) competed in an older age group to finish second at the South Island primary school tennis finals in Timaru last week. The year 4 pupil competed in the year 6 girls singles and went unbeaten in three pool matches, including a 4-2, 2-4, 4-1 victory over No 1 seed Mya Haigh from Maori Hill School in Dunedin. Lucia lost in the final to No 2 seed Cherry Zhou from St Andrew’s College Preparatory School 1-4, 1-4. The two singles finalists teamed up in the

doubles to win the year 6 title. They defeated Mya and Charlotte Byers 6-3 in the final. A week earlier, Lucia won the year 6 and under Canterbury primary school title. She was dominant, not dropping a single game in her three matches leading to the final, in which she defeated Cherry 4-2, 4-2. Leeston School’s Molly McKenzie and Sophia Amyes also competed in the South Island year 6 and under girls singles after making the semi-final of the Canterbury tournament. Molly finished fifth, and Sophia was seventh. •More sports, page 28

New entrants at West Melton School

Swimming brothers win awards „„ By Andrew King SELWYN SWIMMERS Ieuan and Celyn Edwards have won big at the ParaFed Canterbury sports awards, capping off a great year. Ieuan, 15, won the club swimmer of the year award while Celyn, 16, was awarded the Graham Condon Scholarship. Graham Condon was a disabled athlete who won seven medals for New Zealand, competing in Paralympic swimming and athletic events and a total of 36 medals in international competition overall. Both Ieuan and Celyn attended Hillmorton High School. Ieuan said the award rounded off a great year for him. “I would like to continue improving in the pool and I would love to be a Paralympian one day. It would be amazing to represent New Zealand in that way,” he said. Celyn said it was an honour to receive the scholarship. “Looking at the names of previous recipients on it it has been awarded to some very impressive people who have made a huge impact on the sport. I am ecstatic to be seen

as having the potential to walk in the steps of some of New Zealand’s best Paralympians,” he said. In July, the brothers travelled with the five-strong New Zealand team which broke one Oceania and 10 national records, had a number three in the world-ranked performance, three swimmers achieving Commonwealth Games qualifying times and 20 personal bests. Celyn broke records for the 50 and 100m butterfly, 50 and 100m freestyle, 50 and 100m breaststroke and 50m backstroke in the S8 classification category. Ieuan didn’t manage to break any records but broke six of his own personal bests in the 50, 100 and 200m breaststroke, 50 and 100m backstroke, 50 and 100m freestyle events. In the 200m breaststroke, he beat his previous best by 11sec.

MAKING A SPLASH: Selwyn swimmers Ieuan (left) and Celyn Edwards have capped off a good year in the pool with an award and scholarship.

Qualification, of course, has meant extensive planning and fundraising. The team is especially appreciative of support from local businesses, parents, Lincoln High School and various Selwyn Community Boards.

The team has ten current Canterbury representatives so there is plenty of big game experience. “Expectations are very high,” explained coach & ex-student Matthew Falloon. “It will be challenging but we are determined to get a top four finish by playing some accurate and entertaining Touch.”

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Summer is here – time to use our Water Sense! It’s getting hot in Selwyn and with warmer weather comes higher water usage. So that we can continue to supply households with water over summer, and to help conserve water, we are recommending that residents on Council water supplies try to water lawns between 9pm–6am (most recommended) or, on cooler overcast days, between 9am–4pm. Avoid irrigating between 6–9am or 4–9pm as these are times when households use the most water and pressure can drop with high demand. If demand for water increases over summer, water restrictions may be introduced requiring households to avoid watering lawns at specific times. Summer water restrictions are commonly used in New Zealand as a way to manage demand for water.

Post it

@ the Library A post-it street art exhibition created by Rolleston College’s ‘More than just a Tag’ visual art class is taking place this month to bring art into the community in unexpected ways. The Council’s Arts, Culture and Heritage team has collaborated with Rolleston College to bring Post it @ the Library to Rolleston Library and Community Centre. Visual art teacher Rob Ferguson says the class aims to help students create and interact with visual arts in a public, real world context, sharing artistic expression with the wider community. “Learners have been inspired by contemporary street artists such as Banksy and Invader. Street art allows art to exist in places where you wouldn’t expect it, provoking the audience to ponder on concepts outside their everyday life,” Mr Ferguson says. Each work has been carefully planned by the students. Beginning with research into subjectmatter, students created a concept grid to map out their creation pixel by pixel. They then calculated how many post-its were required to bring their vision into the physical world. Some artworks have used well over 700 post-its and are up to 2.5 metres in height. The Post it @ the Library exhibition opening will take place on Thursday 7 December at the Rolleston Library and Community Centre, between 5.30–6.30pm. All are welcome to attend. The exhibition will be on display until Friday 22 December.

Help us decrease the risk of fire this summer

Selwyn schools ‘get ready’ Selwyn District Council has launched a new resource to help children and families make sure they’re prepared for emergencies. The Council has developed an emergency preparedness booklet which teaches children about what to do in an emergency and encourages households to make their own emergency preparedness plans. Community Resilience Coordinator Sue Jenkins says the book has been well-received at Lincoln Primary School, where the booklets were recently presented to 160 Year 5 and 6 students. “Students enjoyed visiting the Emergency Command Bus and meeting ‘Stan’, the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management (MCDEM) mascot,” she says. The booklet is filled with fun, informative activities for children to complete relating to different scenarios. Council hopes to visit more Selwyn primary schools in 2018 to discuss emergency preparedness and hand out copies of the ‘What’s the Plan Stan’ booklets. Selwyn households can also take the opportunity to sign up to Selwyn Gets Ready, Selwyn’s own emergency alert system. Gets Ready is used to share emergency warnings and alerts via text and email. Over 7,000 Selwyn households are already signed up.

It is likely that Canterbury will have a dry, hot summer. As in previous years, we are encouraging property owners to cut or graze long grass before it starts to dry off to avoid it becoming a fire hazard. It’s important to know that while grass may look green, it can still burn in the right conditions. If you have long grass on your property, now is a good time to either graze it or mow it on a cooler day to reduce the risk of fire affecting your property. Council does not maintain roadsides except at intersections to keep sight distance for drivers and outside Council-owned properties eg reserves, cemeteries, quarries. Mowing of intersections is under way as part of the road maintenance contract. The Council is responsible for complaints relating to vegetation on properties causing a fire risk. People can contact Selwyn District Council to make a complaint on 347 2800. On 1 July 2017 Selwyn District Council Rural Fire Authority merged with the New Zealand Fire Service and other rural fire organisations to form Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ). FENZ is now responsible for all aspects of rural fire, including permitting.

Footpath repairs will be occurring on Cathcart Crescent, Juniper Way and Boundary Road. These footpaths will be closed.

Owners of properties adjacent to Council reserves are asked to contact the Council if trees on the reserve require trimming. Contractors will undertake any required work under the Council’s trees and vegetation policy. The Council should also be contacted for trimming of trees on roadsides and berms. Call the Helpline on 347 2800 to place a service request. Property owners are also asked to keep trees and vegetation clear from footpaths. Note that the Council may trim vegetation back from properties if it crosses into a Council reserve in a manner that could impede or injure users of a reserve. With summer’s arrival we’re also encouraging residents to water trees directly outside your house on the roadside berm, especially young trees which are susceptible to dry conditions.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Summer is here – time to use our Water Sense! It’s getting hot in Selwyn and with warmer weather comes higher water usage. So that we can continue to supply households with water over summer, and to help conserve water, we are recommending that residents on Council water supplies try to water lawns between 9pm–6am (most recommended) or, on cooler overcast days, between 9am–4pm. Avoid irrigating between 6–9am or 4–9pm as these are times when households use the most water and pressure can drop with high demand. If demand for water increases over summer, water restrictions may be introduced requiring households to avoid watering lawns at specific times. Summer water restrictions are commonly used in New Zealand as a way to manage demand for water.

Post it

@ the Library A post-it street art exhibition created by Rolleston College’s ‘More than just a Tag’ visual art class is taking place this month to bring art into the community in unexpected ways. The Council’s Arts, Culture and Heritage team has collaborated with Rolleston College to bring Post it @ the Library to Rolleston Library and Community Centre. Visual art teacher Rob Ferguson says the class aims to help students create and interact with visual arts in a public, real world context, sharing artistic expression with the wider community. “Learners have been inspired by contemporary street artists such as Banksy and Invader. Street art allows art to exist in places where you wouldn’t expect it, provoking the audience to ponder on concepts outside their everyday life,” Mr Ferguson says. Each work has been carefully planned by the students. Beginning with research into subjectmatter, students created a concept grid to map out their creation pixel by pixel. They then calculated how many post-its were required to bring their vision into the physical world. Some artworks have used well over 700 post-its and are up to 2.5 metres in height. The Post it @ the Library exhibition opening will take place on Thursday 7 December at the Rolleston Library and Community Centre, between 5.30–6.30pm. All are welcome to attend. The exhibition will be on display until Friday 22 December.

Help us decrease the risk of fire this summer

Selwyn schools ‘get ready’ Selwyn District Council has launched a new resource to help children and families make sure they’re prepared for emergencies. The Council has developed an emergency preparedness booklet which teaches children about what to do in an emergency and encourages households to make their own emergency preparedness plans. Community Resilience Coordinator Sue Jenkins says the book has been well-received at Lincoln Primary School, where the booklets were recently presented to 160 Year 5 and 6 students. “Students enjoyed visiting the Emergency Command Bus and meeting ‘Stan’, the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management (MCDEM) mascot,” she says. The booklet is filled with fun, informative activities for children to complete relating to different scenarios. Council hopes to visit more Selwyn primary schools in 2018 to discuss emergency preparedness and hand out copies of the ‘What’s the Plan Stan’ booklets. Selwyn households can also take the opportunity to sign up to Selwyn Gets Ready, Selwyn’s own emergency alert system. Gets Ready is used to share emergency warnings and alerts via text and email. Over 7,000 Selwyn households are already signed up.

It is likely that Canterbury will have a dry, hot summer. As in previous years, we are encouraging property owners to cut or graze long grass before it starts to dry off to avoid it becoming a fire hazard. It’s important to know that while grass may look green, it can still burn in the right conditions. If you have long grass on your property, now is a good time to either graze it or mow it on a cooler day to reduce the risk of fire affecting your property. Council does not maintain roadsides except at intersections to keep sight distance for drivers and outside Council-owned properties eg reserves, cemeteries, quarries. Mowing of intersections is under way as part of the road maintenance contract. The Council is responsible for complaints relating to vegetation on properties causing a fire risk. People can contact Selwyn District Council to make a complaint on 347 2800. On 1 July 2017 Selwyn District Council Rural Fire Authority merged with the New Zealand Fire Service and other rural fire organisations to form Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ). FENZ is now responsible for all aspects of rural fire, including permitting.

Backyard Critters

IN THE SPOTLIGHT:

Auckland YMCA CEO Peter Fergusson, Lincoln Event Centre manager Ginny Bowden and daily operations co-ordinator Tegan Simson. ​

Garden snail a common pest Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us

THE COMMON garden snail (Cornu aspersum) is an exotic pest species native to Europe and now found on all continents apart from Antarctica. The adult snail shell is typically dark brown with yellow stripes or streaks and is 2540mm in diameter. The soft brown-grey body is slimy and soft enabling it to retract itself into its shell for safety. When stressed or injured it produces frothy mucus as defence. In extremes of cold or dryness the snail can seal its opening with a thin membrane of dry mucus which can stick to surfaces like glue.

Event centre recognised for contribution to community EARTHY: The common garden snail’s brown-grey body is slimy and soft enabling it to retract itself into its shell for safety. The shell is typically dark brown with yellow stripes or streaks and is 25-40mm in diameter. ​ During winter it can be dormant and through chemical changes to its haemolymph (blood) it is able to withstand a 5deg C frost. Snails have four tentacles, the larger upper pair have eye-like light sensors, while the lower pair are tactile olfactory sense organs. Beneath the tentacles is the mouth that contains a ‘toothed tongue’ that the snail uses to scrape and manipulate its food particles. Being hermaphrodites snails

contain both male and female organs which means they can mate with any other snail. Mating sessions can take several hours where two snails exchange sperm and use ‘love darts’ which increases the likelihood of donor sperm being successful. Snails lay a batch of about 80 spherical pearly-white 4mm eggs in moist locations. Snails take one to two years from egg to maturity.

THE LINCOLN Event Centre has received two awards recognising its contribution to the community and environment. Earlier this month staff attended the New Zealand Recreation Association Awards in New Plymouth where the centre received a merit award in the outstanding recreation facility category. This award has six different criteria including innovation, community engagement, excellence, achievement, efficiency and effectiveness and sustainability. The judges said they were particularly impressed with the event centre’s responsiveness to a changing and growing market. “It was the centre’s ability to respond quickly to the rapidly changing and expanding community, the diversity of use and great growth figures within a relatively short space of time that was most impressive,” said Robyn

Getting into the spirit of „„ By Andrew King JESEL ROYOKADA embodies everything that is the Star Media City2Surf. Last year he was photographed leaping into the air after crossing the line capturing the spirit of the event. Now, the Christchurch Fijian Seventh-Day Adventist Church pastor has asked his congregation of about 80 to get involved in the event as a way to connect with other cultures. “We come from the islands and sometimes we do things in our own island groups but it is good to get involved with the rest of

the community,” he said. The 31-year-old encouraged about 25 of his parishioners to get involved in the event last year “It was the first time our church has got involved with something like this,” he said. He said they were told about the event by Healthy Families Christchurch, part of a nationwide Government initiative a​ imed at helping New Zealanders live healthy, active lives. “I would like to see all 80 of them out there, and their friends and families. We can even have kids in prams at the event,” he said.

He said they will start to train soon for the event, which will be held on March 18. The event is split into two sections – 6km and 14km. The Star Media City2Surf with Les Mills 14km event starts in Centennial Park, Spreydon, at 9am. The Sport Canterbury 6km event starts at 10am in Hansen Park, Opawa. Both finish at the Ferrymead playing fields. There will be after-event entertainment with live music, food and free children’s entertainment in the finish area. Earlybird entries open online on December 1 and cost $20. They can be purchased from http://www.city2surf.co.nz/ Standard entry from January 1 will cost $25 online or tickets can be purchased from The Athletes Foot, Pak’n Save and New World supermarkets. Children 10 and under are free to participate. •The Star Media City2Surf will be held on March 18. Early bird entries will be available from December 1 at http://www.city2surf. co.nz/

Get ready for Ma Bell’s Xmas show SCOTTISH-BORN folk, blues and jazz singer-songwriter Isabella (Izzy) Miller Bell is coming out of the kitchen on Sunday for a special Christmas celebration concert. Known as Ma Bell, she will bring Christchurch band Molly’s Remedy and slide/finger-style guitarist Susan Leigh Grant with her to the stage to perform their concert Coming Out of the Kitchen. It will be held at the Nut Point Centre, West Melton. As producer of the Christchurch Pop Up Concert Series, Ma Bell is no stranger to performing in the Selwyn community. The pop-up series was a sixyear, artist-led music project launched in 2011 to support performers after the quakes. The 68-year-old vintage folk blues artist said it had been a fantastic project that would not have been possible without the support of a Creative Communities scheme grant, the artists, the small businesses involved and the good people who supported and went along to the shows. As part of the series, Ma Bell has performed several concerts at the Nut Point Centre,

GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING Christchurch Course Dates 2017 Venue: 32 Birmingham Drive, Middleton

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. They can Raewyn Clegg explain the course content and give you options that will best Registered Teacher of suit your needs.

Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is . . .

LOL Surprise! Dolls and NERF guns are top of the pops when it comes to children’s toys this Christmas. Julia Evans reports CHILDREN HAVE begun sending letters to Santa and shops have become packed with Christmas shoppers – December is here. Tower Junction Toyworld manager Gail Gray said there have already been two clear front-runners as the most popular toys this year. “There’s always favourites and they usually sell out. This year it’s the LOL Dolls,” Ms Gray said. She said the larger dolls had sold out from all stores around the country. However, she promised she was making an extra effort to get the smaller LOL Doll back in store before Christmas. For boys, she said you can’t go wrong with the latest NERF blaster – there’s something they love about shooting foam darts around the garden on the morning of December 25.

Watch out for Chilean needle grass this summer It’s early in the Chilean needle grass season, but plants are already in full flower across Canterbury. Chilean needle grass is an invasive pasture pest that reduces crop yields, causes animal welfare issues and places some restrictions on infested farms, such as not being able to make and distribute hay outside of their own property. “Approximately half of the Canterbury region is susceptible to Chilean needle grass, and around 350 hectares of land is infested across North and Central Canterbury,” Environment Canterbury’s principal resource management advisor biosecurity Laurence Smith says. “Identifying an infestation early will make containing and controlling the pest less expensive and more manageable. We encourage any landowners who suspect they may have signs of the pest to contact Environment Canterbury immediately.” Chilean needle grass is a nationwide problem with approximately 15 million hectares of land across New Zealand are suitable habitat for growth.

be found where there is less competition from desirable pasture species, such as dry, hard hill country, areas with light soil, heavily grazed pasture and bare ground. In November and December, distinctive purple seed heads become visible. The seeds are dart-like, with a sharp seed head and a long, kinked tail. Chilean needle grass can spread by movement on contaminated machinery, vehicles, feed and stock. To prevent spread, only allow clean vehicles and machinery on to your property, and make sure any stock or feed brought on to your farm hasn’t come from an infested property. If you suspect you have found Chilean needle grass, contact Environment Canterbury immediately on 0800 324 636. They ask that you don’t try to tackle the problem alone, as they can provide resources and support to affected landowners and offer experience in how best to manage infestations.

National food security strategy needed, Horticulture NZ says According to a recent report from Horticulture New Zealand, a perfect storm is brewing for New Zealand’s supply of healthy fresh fruit and vegetables that could see us unable to feed our growing population with domestically grown produce, In releasing the report, New Zealand domestic vegetable production: the growing story, Horticulture New Zealand chief executive Mike Chapman said it was time to take stock and develop a national food security strategy. “Our research shows that New Zealanders not only want to know where their fruit and vegetables come from, they want to buy New Zealand grown. This report looks at the factors that will impact security of supply. “Our current consumption levels of fresh produce show that net production is already below what is required for domestic consumption, meaning we can expect food shortages if we can’t get that balance of supply from imports,” Mr Chapman said. “Prime fruit and vegetable-growing land is being squeezed by rapid growth in towns and cities and high demand for new housing. Changes in weather patterns and extreme unseasonal weather events are becoming more frequent and damaging, impacting the supply and, consequently, the price of fresh, healthy food.

“Things are changing fast, so we need to look closely at our domestic food supply and be sure that town, city and regional planning decisions are seen in the context of impacting the whole of New Zealand’s food supply.” The report looks at domestic vegetable supply, particularly of what would be considered staple vegetables, to examine all the factors that go into getting these vegetables from the field to the plate. It examines the challenges to supply, through to what is driving demand and price. “Information and evidence are required to enable good decisions about New Zealand’s domestic food supply and we are keen to engage the new Government with our call for a national food security strategy,” Mr Chapman said. “Domestic supply is not being viewed as a national system, with identified strengths and weaknesses, to give New Zealanders continued access to all the fresh fruit and vegetables they need in the future. Local, district and regional decision-making doesn’t look beyond its borders. While this is appropriate in the context of their planning, consideration is not given to national food supply when land is zoned for housing, or when water is allocated. “We need to future-proof the resources required to supply food to our growing population, and this report looks at this

Lincoln University Dairy Farm to hold Fonterra Open Gates Day The Lincoln University Dairy Farm (LUDF) its opening its gates on December 10 to show off its environmental management to the public. The Open Day is part of the nationwide Fonterra Open Gates Day, which is highlighting how farmers, along with the rest of New Zealand, care about what is happening with our waterways and the environment. It will show how dairy farmers are working to protect our waterway with the likes of specialised native planting, fencing to keep animals out of the water, nutrient management and irrigation efficiency. The Lincoln University Dairy Farm is a demonstration farm, and its environmental work is based on the efficient use of nutrients on the farm, to provide examples to farmers and keep it out of rivers and streams. The day also highlights the process of producing dairy products, and the journey from ‘Sunshine into Food’. “We want to expose people to what happens on a regular pasture-based dairy farm and answer some of their questions around the detail in the science and technology of producing milk on farm,” executive director of farm operator SIDDC, Ron Pellow says. “LUDF operates as both a demonstration

farm for other farmers, and a commercial entity. We also have the stated aim to increase productivity on the farm without i n c r e a s i n g the overall environmental footprint. This makes the information that comes out of SIDDC very relevant for farmers and the farm the perfect place to open up to the public to show them how it all works,” Mr Pellow says.

Join the Christmas Lincoln will be a buzz of activity this Saturday when Santa arrives in town. The Lincoln Christmas Parade and Market will be a day of festivities for all the family with stalls, entertainment, competitions and the Santa Parade, along with the popular Farmers’ and Craft Market. Organised by the volunteer Lincoln Christmas Parade committee, considerable work has gone into making this a really great day out and there will be something for everyone. “We’ve had lots of interest from stallholders with close to 60 already booked,” says Martin Bennett who with wife Lisa owns and operates The Laboratory in Lincoln and is one of the organisers of this special day. There will be a diverse range of stalls including those offering snacks and drinks. They will stretch along Lincoln’s main street (which will be closed off to traffic) from The Famous Grouse to The Laboratory.

The wide assortment of goods on sale will help you take care of the Christmas present shopping as well as find some treats to tuck away for Christmas Day or just to enjoy, along with plants for the garden, a bouncy castle to keep the children entertained and more. The Lincoln Rotary Club and Lincoln Volunteer Fire Brigade will be there raising money with raffles and other activities making this day a great community event. The Lincoln Farmers and Craft Market will be operating in its usual place, next to the Lincoln Library, spilling out onto the green behind. Throughout the morning, the Ellesmere Big Band will be playing outside iSushi and the Woolston Concert Brass Band will perform at 11.30am on the library green. Accompanying the many individuals, local clubs and businesses who will participate in the parade will be the Ellesmere Highland Pipe Band and Woolston Junior Brass Band. Crazy clowns, Adam Allsorts and Silly Milly, will also be in the parade

Strong demand for smaller sections in West Melton Such is the demand for smaller sections in West Melton that both Wilfield and Preston Downs subdivisons have released new sections to accommodate these buyers. Wilfield released 15 sections between 900m2 and 1000m2 in October and only three remain, while neighbouring Preston Downs has just released 12 sections of this size. The Preston Downs sections are bordered by the West Coast Road and Iris Taylor Avenue. Wilfield sections are from $215,000 while Preston Downs sections start at $209,500. Hamish Wheelans, director of Gillman Wheelans, developer of both subdivisons, said that while West Melton has been characterised by bigger sections, there was a population group that were now looking for something a bit smaller. “I think it is a combination of the population base increasing and correspondingly purchasers’ expectations becoming more varied. “Whatever the reason, the demand is very strong,” he said. With the 12 sections at Preston Downs, originally the plan was to develop these for

commercial use, he said. “We applied to the Selwyn District Council for resource consent to zone this area as commercial, but unfortunately that was declined. The land is now being developed into residential sections. “We are really excited about the way West Melton is developing. As well as the popular primary school, there is the new retail area, plus a pre-school at Preston Downs. A second pre-school will open in Wilfield early next year and work has already commenced on the new West Melton Community and Recreation Centre. All these amenities complement the wide range of other recreational areas within the West Melton Community. “As a sponsor of the new centre, we are especially looking forward to this opening next year,” he said. The Wilfield sales office is open every Wednesday and Sunday, 1pm-3pm. If you are coming from Christchurch on West Coast Rd, there are big signs as you approach West Melton providing directions to the sales office. Or you are welcome to phone or email one of the team to make a time that suits you on enquiries@yoursection.nz.

A Kiwi dream in the heart of the community The quarter-acre dream is still possible and available at our award-winning Preston Downs. The final few sections are selling now, email enquiries@yoursection.nz or call 03 741 1340.

No two days the same at West Melton Kindy The West Melton Kindy children had a fun morning of hammering and building on a recent Friday. Amy from Bunnings Riccarton arrived with pre-cut sets of timber to run a ‘Bunnings Preschool workshop’ with the children. Parents and grandparents were invited to come and help and there was a fabulous turnout, the staff said. Children enjoyed sharing their kindy environment with family members and playing together as Amy set up for the morning’s experience. After a quick introduction and a description of the process, the adults were duly warned to be careful not to hold the nails for children to hammer! Then they began. The two and three-year-old children quickly trialled a few different ways of putting the pieces together, but with gentle guidance from the helpers, the squares and rectangles were sorted. Nails were hammered into wood by the children and the boxes began to take shape. A positive fun vibe filled the area as wooden boxes were put together and children proudly showed everyone their creations! The kindergarten staff thank Amy, Bunnings and especially all their wonderful family members.

Saturday market a community hub Every Saturday morning, the church grounds of St Paul’s Anglican church in West Melton are transformed into a hive of community activity as local producers set up their stalls and visitors browse, shop, and catch up with friends. Established three years ago to draw people in and grow the parish, the market offers a huge variety of locally grown, produced and crafted goods. They range from fresh produce, plants and fresh baking such as quiches, cakes and pies, to children’s clothing, candles, soaps, cushions and hand-made cards. Specialty items include Emilio’s handcrafted Italian cheese, fresh fruit ice-cream, Cracker of a Nut walnuts and walnut products, Miss Lily flowers, Langdale Vineyard & Restaurant jams, jellies and preserves, Straight 8 wine, Peter’s handcrafted wooden products made from old wine barrels, and Maddie’s Pillow Slips and Angels of Hope Christmas tree decorations made by Madeline Collins to fundraise for her medical treatment. Market shoppers are invited to place their Christmas orders for fresh produce, flowers and baking over the next two Saturdays so they can pick them up at the last pre-

Christmas market on December 23. On Tuesday, December 19 there will be a special Twilight Market from 4pm-8pm – an ideal opportunity to shop for gifts and get into the Christmas spirit with the live entertainment and Christmas carols. In addition to the usual Saturday market stalls, there will be stalls offering artworks, pottery and photography, including original artworks by Rob Graham depicting Canterbury, and many more. There will also be food trucks with tasty hot foods and delicious desserts.

The West Melton Market runs every Saturday from 9am-12pm in the open space between the trees at the church grounds, opposite the sports grounds – a lovely environment and a great opportunity to meet friends, make new ones and enjoy locally produced items from around the Selwyn District.

Whether wanting a night off cooking, an intimate tête-à-tête or larger affair in the company of friends and family, Quartz is a great place to enjoy a drink, snack, meal or Christmas function. Families wishing to dine before the children’s bedtime will be delighted with the Quartz ‘Early bird special’ where there are $5 kids’ meals for orders placed before 6pm. The children’s meals offer a roast, pasta, platter, or ‘Kids Plate’ where you and your child can choose from a list of ‘treat’ and healthier foods. Throughout the evening, you can relax over a quiet drink or socialise with friends enjoying a delicious varied menu that offers something for everyone. There are entrée choices galore which can be enjoyed individually or ‘tapas style’ – tasty pork ribs, crumbed garlic mushrooms, pan seared scallops, arancini risotto balls or a platter selection. For mains, there is a wide range of meals that start from only $18, with many favourites like roast of the day, fish and chips, burgers, schnitzels, and creamy chicken and bacon fettuccine. Added to the selection are daily creations with the fish of the day, free range chicken skewers, pork belly and a divine lamb rack. Steak lovers are covered too, with a range of steaks, sauces and side options. Quartz caters for all dietary needs with clearly labelled options on the menu. They even have a gluten-free dedicated fryer. There are plenty of choices in wine and beer too. Quartz opens for lunch on Sundays (and other days for advance bookings) with great lunch specials including the brunch stack, open steak/chicken sandwiches and the hearty pea, pie, spud. On the first Saturday of every month at Quartz, you will be entertained by local, talented singer Lee Martin. Have a delicious meal in Quartz listening to Lee singing your favourites before heading through to The Rock bar (right next door) to be entertained by a DJ or live band. With their courtesy van available to get you home safely, why would you go anywhere else! With Christmas bookings filling fast, groups and regular diners who may be heading to the Quartz in December are urged to book now to avoid disappointment. Just call 3474 192 or visit www.quartzrolleston.co.nz.

Gardening

gardening without guesswork Question:

Can you please have a look at this photo and tell me what is wrong with my fern? Is there anything I can do to fix it?

The fern looks to be a ponga, which at this time of the year the older fronds die off and new fronds will begin to grow from the centre. It is better to keep the plant well-watered at this time as the new growth begins, especially down the centre of the plant. Newly transplanted pongas do take quite a long time to settle in.

Answer:

! N I W

A $50 O gIFT r g I l l E T N I ! VOuChEr

Generally ferns need to be grown in areas where they will not be subjected to very hot, dry sunlight, and their roots are kept cool and moist. They also enjoy a good mulch around them. Ferns are a large group of plants and some will tolerate a wide range of conditions so my comments relate to the most common types used in the garden.

Fertilise your ferns

For more information, check out our website: www.intelligro.co.nz or visit our facebook page: www.facebook.com/igro.co.nz

Fertilising ferns is generally done once a year with a slow-release fertiliser such as Intellicote 8-9 month. Avoid fertilisers that can burn their roots, such as Nitrophoska.

Legionnaires Gardening is a popular pastime in New Zealand, and especially so in the Garden City. There are a number of things that can adversely affect your health when gardening, (sun, bees, tetanus, strains from lifting to name a few) and Legionnaires is definitely one of those. With peak gardening season upon us, there are more people out and about in the garden planting veggies and flowers, and tidying up outside ready for Christmas.

At times we can get so busy that we rush through in a hurry trying to get everything done and forget to put on our gloves and masks. It is important that you take the time to protect yourself when you are gardening. Whether you are young or old, a new gardener or an expert, we strongly recommend that you follow all of the safety warnings and advice when handling any bagged or bulk potting mix, veggie mix, compost as well as any other form of growing mix.

Legionellosis (Legionnaire’s disease) is a form of pneumonia, and is caused by a bacteria called Legionella found in moist conditions in the environment. You can catch the disease by inhaling airborne droplets or particles that contain the bacteria. The illness can present itself in mild or severe cases, and can sometimes be fatal. It is more common in elderly people, particularly if they smoke, have poor immunity, or are already ill.

Here are some tips to reduce your chances of contracting this disease:

• Read the warning labels on bags of compost and potting mixes • Wear gloves when handling soils, mulches, composts and potting mixes • Wear a dust mask if you are using these mixes indoors, or if it is windy • Dampen mixes before using them • Always open bags away from your face

Outdoor rooms Just because an outdoor space doesn’t have walls, that doesn’t change the basic principles applied to any design project inside your home.

W

ith a few simple fundamentals to guide you, you’ll soon see how easy it is to create a beautiful outdoor room you’ll love entertaining and relaxing in throughout the warm days and balmy nights of summer. Key considerations include style, function, lighting and mood. Remember that your outdoor room ought to be an extension of the look you’ve created within your home, which reflects your personality and lifestyle. Focal point Beginning, as with any room of the home, a space must always have a focal point to anchor the space. For some, this may be a bar or barbeque area, a large dining table, or a chill-out zone with couches or loungers. Outdoor fireplaces are becoming more and more popular as our living areas blend seamlessly between indoor and outdoor entertaining throughout the changing of the seasons. They can serve not only a practical purpose of somewhere to gather around to warm as the day turns to dusk and the nights get shorter, an outdoor fire can make a stunning feature or room

divider for any outdoor living area. Water features, like a pond with beautiful koi fish, can also serve as a great outdoor focal point, creating tranquil environment in which to relax and unwind in, or create a meditative Japanese rock garden which your outdoor area can overlook. In the zone If you already have a large terrace or outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great place to start. If you have a particularly large outdoor area, dividing the space into zones makes for a more functional and aesthetically pleasing space. You can do this by using a number of different elements, such as contrasting flooring materials or by creating different levels of decking. However, if you’re after a seamless indoor/outdoor flow or wish to create the illusion of more space, use the same flooring materials indoors and out. Divisions can also be made with the clever positioning of furniture. Use modular seating to create walls and separate spaces. Plants are a cost effective and eco-friendly way to create divisions between zones, and are also an ideal way to camouflage ugly walls, create privacy and soften sharp angles. Living walls, an

ever-increasingly popular vertical plant system, can be either freestanding to create different outdoor areas and can be on wheels to easily transform your outdoor space at a moment’s notice. Play with height and scale with various types of planters, whether you use hanging planters to draw the eye upwards, or oversized planter pots to add drama. Go with the flow Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is easily created by opening up your kitchen with bifold doors or windows to create a servery or bar area for easy entertaining. If you are building your home from the ground up, you may want to design an outdoor room which lies at the epicentre of the building, with rooms opening onto the communal courtyard with bifold doors.

Function over form Consider what you intend to use your outdoor space for. If you don’t plan on eating outside, there’s no need for a dining table, but buy some comfortable outdoor seating instead. If you only intend on sitting outdoors during the evening, then don’t waste money on awnings and umbrellas, and invest the money in an outdoor fireplace which you will actually use. Atmosphere Create unique and personalised outdoor decor with textiles and homewares from your travels or your favourite antique shop, or make your own shell garlands or wreaths from beach holidays. String up fairy lights or lanterns to create a festive mood in the evenings.

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

Class and flexibility in design

Signature Homes’ Faringdon showhome. A showhome which has just opened in Faringdon, will have significant appeal for buyers wanting a comfortable and attractive home around the 200sqm mark. The showhome is part of the Signature Homes’ Smart Home collection and offers many features sought after in a new home, including a quality fit-out. “What you see in our showhome is the standard for our Smart Home range. It includes features such as the popular SmartStrand stain resistant synthetic longer pile carpet,” says Rhys Gould who with Kathryn Mitchell, are the local franchise owners of this successful building company. The Faringdon showhome is a modern well-built family home that would suit many buyers. While it is a four bedroom home, there is considerable scope to adapt the plan to suit individual and family needs, with the Heron design lending itself to becoming a generous three bedroom home or extended to include five bedrooms. There is also the option of two living areas or one larger space. The open plan kitchen/dining/living and separated lounge/media room has a comfortable spacious feel, augmented by the indoor/ outdoor flow through a large double stacking slider that leads to a patio and sheltered garden.

A wall opposite the front entry accommodates a study nook though this could easily be removed for a freer flow through the living room. A separate pantry is at one end of the well-appointed, light and bright galley kitchen, which might also be altered to further increase the size of either the pantry or kitchen, by relocating the water cylinder cupboard.

The main bedroom has a large sliding door out to paving and the garden. Inside, there is a generous walk-in robe and large ensuite with ample space for a walk-in shower, should this be preferred. The main bathroom is roomy too with shower, built in tile surround bath and suspended vanity. Next door, the separate toilet is in a handy location for accessibility from the living areas or bedroom quarters. Bedrooms two to four are capacious taking queen sized beds and all have double wardrobes with sliders. Additional storage is also available in the generous water cylinder and hall cupboards. While the laundry is located in the garage, this is a true double so feels quite spacious and again the plan could be adapted to make this a three or four car garage. The flexibility of the Heron design allows choice of features and tailoring of design to suit most needs and desires. Signature Homes slogan: Your home your way certainly comes through in the flexibility available in their Faringdon showhome in Rolleston, making it a ‘must see’ for anyone looking to build a new home.

This showhome is located at 97 Ledbury Drive and is open Wednesdays to Sundays, 12noon to 4pm.
