“We have had a fantastic year with our troupe consisting of both world and national championship dancers,” says parent committee member Lucretia Downs. “We have had performers from across the Selwyn region and the greater Christchurch district competing in America, Australia and at the world championships in Dublin. Some of our dancers have qualified for the worlds next year, which is the 50th anniversary of the competition and a huge achievement. “The two hour Christmas show is a very delightful event and a lot more fun

for the dancers, as it is more relaxed. The whole team will be performing and being held at the Christchurch Town Hall makes it extra special. There will be non-traditional dancing as well and my daughter Tessa will be performing as Buzz in Toy Story. The team are also showcasing Alice in Wonderland. “The beginners will be dancing, and the O’Neill School from Invercargill will be joining in. There will be a Parade of Champions for this year’s nationals’ place winners and the all-time favourite Cry of the Celts from Michael Flatley’s Lord Of The Dance will be featured.” Tickets to the show on Friday are at

the special price of $20 an adult and $50 for a family of two adults and two children. These are available on the night or through the O’Neill School of Irish Dance Facebook page. “Irish Dancing is a phenomenal experience for those involved. The students visit some retirement villages on St Patrick’s day, which the residents really enjoy and this year we were involved in CultureFest as well. The commitment and team spirit of the school is extremely high, and we all become a big family. We are immensely proud of our dancers and how well they have performed this year in all areas.” 

Cooler cups not cool ESTS UR FOR LOVE O OES TURE D OUR FU

A single 20 year old Pinus radiata will offset all the greenhouse gas through the life of 1 sheep. 1.5 trees will offset 1 cow’s gas for one year. 5 trees will offset the carbon from 1 car for 1 year.

Plantation forestry is already looking great For the same area of land, forestry provides many more jobs than sheep and beef farming and so boosts rural communities. Forest product exports are earning more than beef and sheepmeat combined. And from much smaller land area. Forests are the best way to hold vulnerable landscapes intact. Our future needs to include more forests Forestry is the key to getting New Zealand to carbon neutral. Though trees alone can’t achieve carbon neutrality for New Zealand permanently, our forests’ ability to absorb carbon is crucial for reaching 2030 and 2050 greenhouse gas reduction goals. That’s why there are incentives to plant trees, paid for by carbon emitters. That in turn is why so many New Zealand landowners are planting forests. Forests and farms are both crucial for New Zealand. Nearly a third of our log harvest is on farms. Let’s work together. We can continue to feed and house both us and our international customers, and fight climate change at the same time.

As New Zealand local bodies are called on to crack down on their use of plastic drinking cups, one council, ours — doesn’t have to worry; it doesn’t have any. Last year, councils brought close to 120,000 plastic cups, most commonly used with water coolers. However, the Selwyn District Council wasn’t among them. Our council was among a small minority of councils that brought none at all. By contrast and somewhat ironically, the highest offender was Selwyn’s close neighbour, the Timaru District Council, which purchased 14,600 cups last year. Official information requests show that most councils are trying to track down on the plastic cups — cups that many see as an environmental problem. Climate campaigner Budyong Hill praised councils for scrapping plastic cups but reminded councillors there was still work to be done. “It’s good to start with the small things, but there’s no point patting ourselves on the back for getting rid of plastic cups when there are far bigger things that we have to address and keep in mind,� he said. Andrew Boyd, Selwyn District Council’s solid waste manager, said the council had made a conscious decision

p Plastic drinking cups may soon be a thing of the past — they already are in Selwyn

not to use the cups, and alternatives were provided. “For our headquarters, our kitchen and kitchenettes are fitted with cool and boiling water dispensing taps. Every staff member is issued with a reusable cup with a lid, and there are a large number of mugs available. “We don’t have stand-alone water coolers with the cup dispensers. When we have meetings or visitors, we have glasses and water jugs available. So really there isn’t a need for the disposable cups,’ he said. ¢

Picton to Bluff charity walk Youth choir performing u by Ann van Engelen

Tim Adams has begun a long-term goal of raising awareness of cancer by walking approximately 920 kilometres along State Highway 1 from Picton to Bluff.

p Tim Adams with two of his support crew Aaron and Irene Cassidy

“I was introduced to the disease when I was 12 years old when my grandad got lung cancer. His experience stuck with me, and I thought some day I would like to raise awareness,” says Tim. “In my early 20s, when I was a soldier with the NZ Army in the second and third battalion in Christchurch and wanted to do the walk but kept putting it off. Last year a good friend’s family member passed away from the disease. At the beginning of this year, one of my family members found a lump on her neck and had to go through all the cancer tests, which was not nice. My wife and I have a two-year-old and decided now is the

time to help raise funds for the Cancer Society toward a better future. We hope no one gets the disease but want to give our children and future generations more options if they do.” Tim aims to complete 42 kilometres each day to finish the mission in 23 days. “We are raising awareness of what people go through if someone gets the disease. I have a support crew, and they will be collecting with buckets in towns we stop at. “People can follow me on the A long walk Picton to Bluff Facebook page.” ¢

“We had exceptional numbers with some 570 cars, bikes and tractors turning up for the show with all types, makes, models and ages, from Austin Sevens to the new electric vehicles,” says founder and patron John Winchester. “The police, fire, St John and army were on-site, and we had a creche for the little ones and a free bouncy castle. We wanted to give the Rolleston people an identity and something affordable to enjoy. We had nearly 5,000 people attend and raised close to $20,000 for various local charities around the Selwyn District.” John founded Motorfest three years ago to help fund the St John premises that was being built. “A committee of people got behind me, including the Men’s Shed and Lincoln Rotary. We now continue to find Selwyn District community concerns that need financial help on an annual basis. “We have fantastic sponsors. Without them, we couldn’t operate such a

They also had unlimited turns on the bouncy castle. “There was a huge variety of makes and models of vehicles including American, English, European, Australian and Japanese cars, trucks, tractors and motorbikes. “We were given incredible prizes, including tyres, dinners at eateries, cash and a macrocarpa table. “We appreciate everyone involved that made it a fun family day for children.

Public-private partnerships can work u by Amy Adams, MP for Selwyn

As the former Minister for Communications, I was invited to attend a recent function to mark the completion of the first phase of the Ultrafast Broadband programme (known as UFB1). I am very proud of the former government’s achievements in this area, which have resulted in New Zealand becoming one of the most well-connected countries in the OECD. The UFB programme is a publicprivate partnership between Crown Infrastructure Partners and four partners — Northpower, Enable Services, WEL Networks and Chorus. UFB1 is a fantastic illustration of how well public-private partnerships can work, having been completed within budget and one month ahead of schedule. With the result that 79 per cent of New Zealanders now have access to high-quality broadband services. The programme has been especially popular here in Selwyn with our growing townships of Rolleston and Lincoln both in the top three areas nationwide in terms of uptake.

UFB is a game-changer for our smaller regional towns, which have previously been hamstrung by inadequate connectivity but are now able to make use of online tools and services for work, education and leisure. The second phase of the programme (UFB2) is well underway. Work has been started in several parts of Selwyn this year including Leeston and Southbridge, with many more areas due to receive UFB2 for the next two years. The goal is for 87 per cent of New Zealanders to have access to UFB once phase two is complete. As this is my last column for The Record before Christmas, I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year. My electorate office in Templeton will close for the holiday break on Friday, December 20 and will reopen on Monday, January 20.

SPCA needs foster carers

Expo a success

u by Ann van Engelen

u by Mike Isle

The Canterbury SPCA is appealing for more animal foster homes to help rehabilitate the increase of large animals in their care, such as horses and goats.

West Melton Garden Club’s Selwyn Garden Expo held last Sunday was a resounding success, according to the 500 or so people who flocked to the West Melton Community Centre for the event.

p Walt arrived at the SPCA starving, he is now healthier and needs a foster carer to help with his recovery

“An increasing number of larger animals are coming to our attention and rehab is having some good results. Walter is a 10-year-old grey thoroughbred horse who came in as a result of a complaint about a skinny horse,” says SPCA Canterbury’s Chief Animal Welfare Inspector, Jamie Hancock. “When Walt arrived at the SPCA two months ago, he was starving and knocking on death’s door and almost every bone in his body visible through his woolly coat. We have had a careful strict reintroduction of food under veterinarian advice, and this is putting condition back on him.”

He is regaining weight and is now needing a foster home to take him on. “There is an increased need for our help for larger animals in the region. We get goats, horses, cows, sheep and pigs. We only have so much space and resources at the centre, so we are really reliant on help and need foster homes for the temporary care of 50 large animals. Foster homes increase the rate of healing time by reducing the animal’s stress and spending time in a home also means animals can learn what a home environment is like.” To help with foster care phone 03 349 7057 or email christchurch. foster@spca.nz. ¢

KNOW YOUR LOCAL A gift three times at once u by Andy Bryenton

Christmas can often become a frenzy of last-minute shopping, pushing through the crowds at bigbox retailers to snag the last example of that must-have toy or seasonal bargain — but it doesn’t have to be. Around the world, people are turning away from the mass commercialisation of the season and embracing the concept of giving something sourced locally. There’s a list of very good reasons for this trend. Starting with the fact that a gift made or sourced from where you live is likely to be more unique or personal than one bought from the same catalogue that was delivered to a million other letter boxes. A work of art, some gourmet local cheese, preserves, smoked meat or turned wood, upcycled clothing, pottery, jewellery or crafts. All of these things speak of where they’re from — bringing a little of your home town to friends far away. Then there’s the benefit to local business. The adage ‘a dollar spent locally is spent thrice’ really does apply. First, you’re supporting a local person, be they a business owner, craft market stallholder or even the original manufacturer or artisan. They are then able to use that money to further their business, invest in new stock, pay

staff and create jobs, or, as so many small local firms do at this time of year, support charitable causes. Your dollars go another round instead of heading offshore, and that helps us all. Originally, Christmas was a small-town celebration, situated in the middle of the northern hemisphere winter and all about pulling together to make it through the coldest part of the year. The good food, small gifts and shared

rituals, like carolling or decorating a town Christmas tree, were less about unboxing toys than about creating a sense of community. We may not live in times when we must unite against the ice and snow to survive as townsfolk in small communities, but the same message still applies economically. Make it a local Christmas this year, and spread some cheer among your neighbours and friends. ¢

Dining & ENTERTAINMENT Kiwi Christmas cheesecake u by Andy Bryenton

Translating the hearty, hot and sometimes heavy Yuletide fare of the northern hemisphere to our summery festive season has never been easy. Some opt to ignore the temperature and serve up a feast fit for a medieval king at midwinter. Others opt for the full barbecue and miss out on turkey and plum pudding. However, there’s a middle way, as exemplified by this recipe. There are three parts to this dish — the base, the filling and the topping. To complete all three you’ll need; two tubs of premixed cheesecake filling, a dash of vanilla essence, one packet of shortbread biscuits, 100gm of butter, eight single shots of dark or spiced rum, two dessert spoons of grated preserved ginger, cinnamon to taste, a generous handful of pitted or glace cherries, a small bottle of cream (or canned whipped cream) and a medium-sized metal pan. Line the pan with baking paper and chill. Take the shortbreads, bag them, and strike with a rolling pin until they are crumbled. Melt the butter, add four shots of rum, a sparing sprinkle of cinnamon and a dash of vanilla. Pour the butter mixture over the shortbread crumbs in the pan to form a base as thick as your index finger. Allow this to chill and set while making the filling. That is easily accomplished by mixing the preserved ginger, a little

more cinnamon and the four further shots of rum into the cheesecake filling. Those with a sweet tooth may want to blend a little extra icing sugar into the mix, though rum can be quite sweet, depending on which distillery it comes from. Once the mix is well stirred and whipped with a fork to aerate, spread evenly on the base.

Chill, until the top can be studded with cherries pressed half-way into the filling. Chill through in the refrigerator, covered. Garnish with whipped cream before serving. Those who wish to avoid using pre-made cheesecake filling can manufacture a delicious substitute using finely sifted sugar, cream cheese, full cream and a small amount of vanilla seeds. ¢

Two kinds of voltage u by Andy Bryenton

Two very different approaches to the future of motoring have been revealed in this past month, both of them electric, both of them harking back to an icon of pop culture, but both of them remarkably different in their design. The first is Tesla’s Cybertruck, an angular, stealth-bomber wedge made of stainless steel and able to deflect a sledgehammer. How do we know? Having a helper clad in Mad Max attire swing one at the truck’s door was part of Elon Musk’s big reveal for the vehicle. While his demo of its tempered glass did not go so smoothly, something about this 4x4 origami behemoth struck a chord, as pre-orders flooded in; 146,000 in the first two days. It could be because the angular, striking machine costs only US$50,000 for an all-wheel-drive variant that can whip a modern Porsche sports car in a drag race, then go on to haul a load up to 800 kilometres. There’s a hint that the design of the Cybertruck and even its name, are a nod to the seminal ‘cyberpunk’ movie Blade Runner, as it resembles the vehicles designed for that movie by artist Syd Mead. Tesla even revealed the truck on the day that the movie is meant to take place in November 2019. Moreover, there is another new contender; very real, very modern, and looking back instead of forward

for design and branding. Ford’s Mach-E Mustang has caused a stir, with traditional displacement-focussed V8 purists throwing up their hands at the idea of an electric Mustang crossover SUV. Stripped of the naysayers’ hype, it’s a pretty machine, as rounded and sleek as the Cybertruck is starkly angular. Hints of the current Mustang, the world’s best- p Ford’s Mach-E Mustang takes on vehicles like the Jaguar E-Pace, while Tesla’s new Cybertruck is in a niche of its own selling sports car, after all, are there to see, and the combination Mustang variants, and the back of a possible 450-kilometre range catalogue of prototype pony cars had alongside what Ford is calling ‘thrilling’ some weirder visions of the future and ‘engaging’ driving characteristics than this. mean that the Mach-E ticks a whole lot No doubt there will be big of boxes. supercharged V8s in the lineup for Ecologically friendly, cheap to run, a while yet, but if that Cybertruck v easy on the eye, packed with clever Porsche battle is anything to go by, the storage features and plenty of space; Mach-E might give the petrol-powered the icing on the cake is that it’s Mustangs a run for their money. a Mustang.
