Lawn will be a part of the New Zealand team heading to the World Champs in Belgrade, Serbia in October. “I have been to three World Championships so far, in Russia, Serbia, and Australia,” Lawn says. “Our best result was being placed seventh at the 2011 World Champs in Australia. I competed in all these competitions as part of a team, and this year’s world champs are the first time I have been selected as an individual, which is a whole new challenge.” Lawn says competitive sports aerobics is a sport where all elements of physical fitness come into play. “We perform a two minute routine to music, in which we must include a range of different skill elements including press-ups, jumps, static strength moves, and show flexibility.

“There are no rests, it’s two minutes of non-stop high intensity exercise. We are judged on how well we complete each move, how energetically we perform the routine, how well the routine suits the music, and much more.” Lawn says she first came across aerobics when she was in Year 7 at school, when another Lincoln girl advertised in the school notices that she was looking for people to coach. “A friend and I decided it sounded hilarious, and dared each other to go. An hour later we had been picked for a team. “I competed at school level for two years and was then picked to be in a fitness team with six other girls from around Canterbury. We qualified for Worlds and I have had the desire to represent New Zealand ever since.” continued on page 7 …

Selwyn District Council is one of 29 councils throughout New Zealand which have benefitted from an $889,000 Youth Development Partnership Fund announced by the Government. The Selwyn Foundation Youth Council, which is facilitated by the Selwyn District Council Youth Advisor, has received $32,000 in funding from the Ministry of Youth Development to stage the Youth Event in 2014. The Foundation Youth Council submitted an event plan to the Ministry which included holding a Youth Forum to discuss ideas and develop action plans and a Battle of the Bands event on the first day of the weekend event.

The second day will feature ‘have a go’ activities showcasing lots of different sport and recreation activities young people can try and clubs they can join in Selwyn. The day will end with a concert where local young people can show off their talents and invited artists will also perform. “This is an exciting opportunity to stage an event which young people from across Selwyn will enjoy,” SDC’s Youth Advisor Chris Martin says. “The event will build on the work of our Youth Action Groups and shows the enthusiasm our Foundation Youth Council brings to Selwyn.” The event will be open to young people from across

Things I have learned

Selwyn needs to stand on its own

u by Nigel Barnett, Ellesmere Ward councillor

u by Peter Hill, Selwyn Central Ward councillor

Having nearly completed two terms on council there are some things I have learned. The first one is that nobody particularly likes the council. I guess this is to be expected given the compulsion of paying rates but it does require a thick skin at times. I have also learned that the most valuable council asset is the staff. There is a reason why people choose to work in local government rather than the private sector and that is a genuine passion and a desire to do the very best for ratepayers. Whether they are working alongside communities to assist them with their projects or providing the necessities of water, waste water, refuse collection or roading or perhaps it is providing planning guidance to ensure that tomorrow’s communities are provisioned with what they will require in the future. Maybe they are involved with finance, ensuring that

future needs are adequately funded, sometimes by debt to allow those that have yet to arrive to pay their fair share of the infrastructure cost that is incurred today. Regardless of their role, I know that that as a councillor, we are required to make decisions and our confidence to do this is enhanced by the quality of information that is supplied to us by our conscientious staff. I have learned that grandchildren are one of life’s great motivators, for us to look forward to the world they will inherit and understand that decisions made today will impact on them and their family’s enjoyment of the Selwyn district in the future. I have also learned that if you can’t have a bit of fun along the way, it’s time to move on to something else. ¢

Concern is being expressed about the future shape of local government in Canterbury. To my mind there can be no doubt that an independent district council in Selwyn can and does provide a much better place to live, work and play than would our subservience under a greater Christchurch or Canterbury conglomerate. This is not to say that we cannot gain from a closer relationship with the big city and the region, and that is being facilitated as I write. The partial restructuring of the finance side of the Canterbury health system, for example, ensures that we become part of a much bigger health pie and will therefore be able to more fully utilise scarce government health monies in our more sparsely populated district.

and district co-operation can and is paying dividends is in the area of road safety. Road crashes in Selwyn have recently trended upwards alarmingly, as more people come to live in our district and our once-rural roads become busier. To help arrest that trend we have become part of a national and international initiative which emphasises the necessity of a ‘whole of system’ approach. The Safer Journeys system encourages all agencies involved in road safety to spread crash prevention across all causal factors including safer road use, safer speeds, safer roads and roadsides as well as safer vehicles. Also, the jury is still out on whether the economic gain from land-use intensification in Selwyn is worth the environmental risks. Certainly E-coli encroachments and nitrate levels are rising. Much work is being done to halt the increase in both surface and ground-water pollution but while land-use intensification is being encouraged ahead of total pollution control the results of such effort remain uncertain. ¢

Selwyn hopes to attract Aussie visitors u by Kent Caddick

Selwyn could benefit from an increased number of visitors from Western Australia following a successful marketing trip targeting tourism agents in Western Australia.

Hepatitis-A clinic held at Lincoln preschool u by Kent Caddick

Children, their families, and staff from the Lincoln University Early Childhood Centre have been provided with a hepatitis A vaccine to reduce the potential for the virus to spread.

p Selwyn District Council’s tourism advisor Elizabeth Pitcorn talks with travel agents and wholesalers about Selwyn’s attractions at a tourism expo in Perth

Selwyn District Council’s tourism advisor Elizabeth Pitcorn was able to speak directly to more than 100 travel agents at a travel expo in Perth about Selwyn. Selwyn District Council was lucky enough to win the free trip to Perth from Air New Zealand at a launch event for the new air service. This allowed Pitcorn to travel to Perth as part of a South Island delegation which attended a travel expo in the city to promote Canterbury to travel agents and travel wholesalers in Western Australia. “There was a lot of interest from the travel agents in Bed and Breakfast accommodation in our district, our gardens, the TranzAlpine route and walking tracks,” Pitcorn says. “Many agents also wanted to find out more about the skiing options available in Selwyn.”

Pitcorn says the expo was a great opportunity to market Selwyn and its attractions to a new audience and that she is confident that many people from Western Australia will chose to visit Selwyn as a result of the trip. Travel agents and travel wholesalers at the expo were given brochures promoting Selwyn’s attractions to take away and share with their customers. From December 4 a new direct flight will be launched from Perth to Christchurch and will operate twice a week. The service will run until April 26, 2014, as a trial and if successful will become permanent. Western Australia has an estimated population of 2.47 million. It is the fastest growing State in Australia and weekly income levels are also higher than the Australian average. ¢

Vaccinations were provided at the preschool last Friday with 68 adults and 58 children being vaccinated. Dr Ramon Pink, Canterbury Medical Officer of Health, says the vaccination was provided after a child from the preschool was diagnosed with hepatitis A. Both of the child’s parents have also been diagnosed with hepatitis A. There is no known connection between these three cases and the current outbreak of hepatitis A in Ashburton. In Ashburton there have been 22 confirmed cases over the past three months. “Hepatitis A is transmitted when people don’t wash their hands properly after going to the toilet, and good hand hygiene, particularly thorough hand washing, is key in preventing its spread,” Dr Pink says. “Preschools can be a high risk environment for the spread of hepatitis A, particularly where there is nappy changing.” Dr Pink says that he was very pleased with Friday’s turnout, and has thanked the preschool and the

parents involved for fully supporting the vaccination programme. Hepatitis A, formerly known as infectious hepatitis, is an acute infectious disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus. Young children infected with hepatitis A typically have a milder form of the disease, usually lasting from one to three weeks, whereas adults tend to experience a more severe form. Symptoms can include fever, fatigue, nausea, appetite loss, jaundice and colour change to urine and faeces. ¢

Selwyn’s TV takeback reaches target u by Kent Caddick

Selwyn MP Amy Adams, who is also Minister for the Environment, has followed her own advice and recycled her old, unwanted television to mark the government’s TV Takeback Scheme reaching the milestone of 100,000 televisions recycled so far.

p Selwyn MP Amy Adams adds her old television set to others being recycled in Hornby

Ms Adams recently took her own television for recycling at the RCN e-waste recycling plant at Buchanans Road in Hornby and handed over her five dollar note, the subsidised cost of recycling, to RCN’s general manager, John Thornhill. Ms Adams says she is thrilled with the progress of the scheme to date, including in Selwyn, where the target of 2,700 televisions recycled had been reached. “It is great news for the environment that people are really getting behind the scheme,” Ms Adams says. “Old television sets and other electronic waste such as computer monitors cannot be put into landfills

because they contain chemicals that can contaminate the environment and cause harm to humans.” The government’s TV TakeBack programme has been rolled out around the country to coincide with the digital switchover in each region. Through the government subsidy, the cost to the public of recycling a television has been no more than $5. The programme is also aimed at expanding electronic recycling services across New Zealand, raising public awareness and ensuring recyclers have the capacity and capability to deal with increased volumes of e-waste in the future. ¢

THE RECORD August 28 - 2013



Make your life a little easier With the warm weather that we have been experiencing lately we can fall into the trap of thinking that winter is over. It is important to remember that it is still winter and we can still get those frosts and late snowfall. While it is tempting to get your spring planting done now, be weary that your hard work could be undone in one cold snap. Warnings aside, there are still tasks that you can do now to prepare for spring, making life a little easier when planting time comes around. Here at South-Hort we have specifically formulated a growing mix that is suitable for your raised garden beds, planter boxes, and also in your garden — our Veggie Garden Mix! This excellent growing mix is designed to be planted directly into, without fear of damaging your plants. It contains a controlled release fertiliser, supplying your plants with the nutrients they require, as they need it — pretty clever I’d say! Veggie Garden Mix is available in bulk as well as bags. This growing mix is perfect if you are looking to freshen up your existing material, or if you are starting from scratch.

BOUNCE INTO SPRING Creative pruning Just as cosmetic surgery seems to be replacing good old exercise to get the body you want, so is pruning a form of cosmetic enhancement to add the charm and character to rather ordinary plants. We often get carried away with trying to keep plants looking healthy and we forget to help them develop a bit of character. Even the ones with graceful outlines already, such as maples and

dogwoods, sometimes need a helping hand to bring out their best. Removing the lower branches of a shrub such as a camellia can lighten the appearance of the plant. It can also open up a space underneath giving you a new area for shade-loving plants, although don’t be tempted to make every tree a lollipop shape.

Open up the canopy of a larger shrub or tree by removing the less attractive branches. Make the cuts at different heights for a more natural effect. Winter is the best time for pruning but sometimes with deciduous trees it’s necessary in summer as the branches, weighted with leaves, handle differently. Opening up branch structure allows in light and air which discourages diseases. Trim shrubs which flowered in late winter before new growth gets underway, cutting back to strong buds all shoots that have flowered. You may have left your hydrangeas untouched so that last year’s flowers

give a little protection against frost. Spring pruning of these plants is always more enjoyable as there are plenty of fat, swelling buds just below the flowers to cut to. The old mophead and quercifolia types flower from old wood, so leave any healthy stems which didn’t flower last year. Paniculata and arborescens types flower on new wood, so if you want you can prune back the whole bush to a basic framework. Not every shrub should be interfered with. Good garden design relies on a proportion of weightier specimens too. Enjoy your spring garden! ¢

Health and Fitness ADVERTORIAL

Why herbal remedies? — Nature knows best The use of plants as medicine is backed by the longest clinical trial in history. By observation and experimentation, all human cultures have proven over time, the efficacy of plant medicine. they are our allies and ideally suited to their role of promoting health and helping to move humanity beyond disease. Herbalism at one time was the foundation for modern medicine, botany, pharmacy, perfumery and chemistry and based on truly scientific methods — hypothesis, experimentation and proving and then repeating the same results time after time after time. “It seems to me necessary to every physician to be skilled in nature and to strive to know, if he would wish to perform his duties, what man is in relation to the articles of food and drink and to his other occupations and what are the effects of each of them on everyone. “Whoever does not know what effect these things have produce upon a man cannot know the consequences which result from them. “Whoever pays no attention to these things, or, paying attention, does not comprehend them, how can he understand the diseases which befall man? For by every one of these things a man is affected and changed this way and that, and that the whole of his life is subject to them — whether in health, convalescence or disease. Nothing else then can be more important and necessary to know than these things” Hippocrates (around 550 BC) NEW ZEALAND HERBALS range of formulae are chosen according to strict controls , laws, principles and protocols, made under unique

Herbal medicine has a vast track record of over 40,000 years and their protocols fit with all the criteria of the scientific method, ie obser vation, hypothesis, experimentation, proving, and results are consistently repeated. It is natural, perfectly logical and based on natural laws and principles. Today, over 75% of the world’s population use herbal medicine as their primary means of health care. Many chemical drugs are based on compounds found in plants. For example, the idea of valium comes from the valerian root and aspirin from the salicylates found in willow bark, yet these medicines were known by indigenous cultures for 1,000s of years. Herbalists choose to use plant remedies because of their proven efficacy and their low or no risk of side effects. Scientists can make artificial sea-water in the laboratory — however no fish will live in it. The biological complexity of plants cannot be reproduced and they are ideally suited to our biologically complex physiology. Although herbalists recognise the existence of active principles within the plant, the other, less active parts are an integral part of the whole remedy. Nature is the perfect scientist. Well chosen herbs are in harmony with human beings. Evolved by nature herself,

Minerals are essential Minerals are inorganic, naturally occurring compounds. There are over 70 minerals we obtain through foods of which about 20 are identified as essential for our bodies to function. If we have inadequate mineral intake, or our mineral intake is out of balance, this can have disastrous effects on our health. While food from the sea has excellent mineral balance, many of our soils are deficient in minerals. NZ soils contain very low levels of the cell protecting trace mineral selenium. This is especially important for those in the South Island as the bread produced from Canterbury grain has low selenium. The NZ Government agency MedSafe (2103) commented “South Island bread is made predominantly with wheat grown locally in low-selenium soils.” Some minerals have multiple functions and low levels can cause many problems. For example zinc is known to participate in over 300 enzymes. Low zinc levels can cause diverse problems from poor immune function, eye problems, hair loss and skin problems. Many people take mineral supplements to maintain health or as part of a treatment programme for specific conditions. These can be single minerals, such as iron, iodine or calcium, small groups such as magnesium, calcium and potassium or as multi-mineral complexes. My view is the single or small groups of minerals should only be given under professional guidance. For example single iron supplements should only be taken after blood tests show low iron levels. The same applies to iodine and some other minerals. For most people, most of the time the best way to get minerals from supplements is as modest dose multi-mineral preparations. This will ensure you are getting the minerals in the correct form and correct balance. My preference is for chelated minerals whereby the mineral is bonded to amino acids (the building blocks of protein) to provide optimum absorption with the minimum risk of tummy upsets.

Chance to learn about river birdlife u by Kent Caddick

Environment Canterbury is giving Selwyn residents an opportunity to learn about Canterbury’s unique braided rivers and their inhabitants, particularly birdlife. Braided River Aid (BRaid), a non-profit organisation which aims to preserve the indigenous features of Canterbury’s braided rivers, runs courses supported by ECan. The course, held at the Glentui Conference Centre near Oxford, has been offered successfully for the last two years. The next, led by professional ornithologist John Dowding, will happen from September 24–26. BRaid chairman Nick Ledgard says Cantabrians are particularly lucky. “It would be hard to find somewhere else in New Zealand where such a range of native land birds remain in their original habitat so close to major urban areas.” ECan’s Biodiversity Team Leader Jo Abbott says their support of the courses is worthwhile because braided rivers and their inhabitants are an integral part of Canterbury’s landscape and extremely important.

p Previous attendees on a braided rivers course run by Braided River Aid

“BRaid is doing a fantastic job providing opportunities to learn about these special Canterbury residents and how to look after them for generations to come,” Dr Abbott says. Anyone interested in the September course should contact BRaid secretary Val Clemens at ECan support means that the all-up cost for three days is just $120. ¢

their work in a professional gallery environment. They have been working hard on their portfolios for NCEA and this is a good opportunity to gain some feedback from the wider community on their work. The exhibition opens on Friday, August 30, at 5.30pm. During the second half of the month, the Malvern Community Arts Council, with the support of Creative New Zealand Creative Communities Scheme, is holding workshops for young people at the Selwyn Gallery. This is an opportunity for young artists aged 5–12 years to learn about fabric painting with the theme of Maori myths and legends. The two hour workshops will be run by local artist and primary school teacher Vicky Peacock. Each workshop runs from 2–4pm and you can book for either Saturday 14 or Sunday 15 September. The workshops cost $5 each and bookings can be made with Vicky directly (027 629 7755). Work that is made at the workshops will be displayed at the gallery and will be exhibited alongside work from senior students at Hororata, Windwhistle and Greendale schools from September 13–27. Vicky has been supported by the Arts Council to run workshops at these schools this year and the students have enjoyed creating works that relate to Maori myths and legends. ¢

Vehicle servicing can covers a wide range of tasks — Kirwee Challenge covers these in three segment — minor service, major service and a computer engine management system and health check. These are usually carried out at 10,000–15,000 kilometres intervals, or from every six month to 12 months depending on your travel movements. With engine management systems in modern vehicles we offer a computer health check. This resets computer faults that build up between service intervals and need to be cleared using our up to date scan tool, to help vehicles maintain their optimum performance and run economically, saving fuel. New vehicles have the capabilities to show the driver the litres of fuel per 100km the vehicle is achieving and without a health check it is hard to maintain these manufacturers specifications. This would take technician up to ½ hour to perform. In a minor service, expect to get the engine oil and oil filter changed,

all other oils and fluids checked for condition and levels. Lubrication will be carried out and the battery condition checked. We use testing equipment to tell us when brake fluids need changing and if engine coolant will meet corrosion and or freezing capabilities. We check tyre condition and pressure including spare wheel and all lights and wipers. All under vehicle inspections will be carried out on suspension, brakes, steering, and drive train. Any attention required will be first discussed with the customer. This minor service would take up to an hour to complete. A major service includes all minor service items plus changes of all fluids and fuel filters, spark plugs etc. Most manufacturers supply service books with their vehicles — that give service

intervals and what is expected to be serviced at these intervals but we can supply free MTA service books for those that are missing or lost. These books should be filled out by service technician, with mileage and date recorded, a requirement by insurance and vehicle manufacturers when warranty work is to be carried out. No records of service can impact on warranties. Servicing regularly is one way of making sure your vehicle will be reliable and safe and money well spent With 45 years of experience we can provide for all motoring needs.
