Quarry’s gravel take allowed to double A quarry company has won a battle over residents and will be able to expand its operation near Burnham. But residents who fought Road Metals say the resource consent hearing decision is in fact a minor victory for them.

Road Metals has been given resource consent to double, but not to treble the scale of operations at its Rolleston quarry, as it had sought to do. Rolleston Rural Residents Inc president Simon Lock said while it was disappointing that the consent conditionsSelwyn had beenTimes changed, the result was as 266mm good as residents x 90mmcould have expected. “It would have been nice to have

kept it as it was but my take on it is the process was very well considered and the commissioner [David Mountford] seemed to be very balanced, not biased one way or the other and at the end of the day, I consider it a minor victory.” Road Metals owners Murray and Jonny Francis did not respond to requests for comment. The quarry, which sits on 214ha of land between Wards Rd, Sandy Knolls Rd and Kerrs Rd just north of Burnham, opened in 2013 after a battle between Road Metals and local residents ended in the Environment Court. Around 300 local residents had submitted against the quarry. •Turn to page 2

Quarry’s gravel take allowed to double •From page 1 Under its new consent conditions, the company will be able to increase gravel extraction from 160,000 cu m to 320,000 cu m; truck movements to be increased from no more than 200 per day to no more than 400 per day with a three month rolling average of 350 per day. The quarry may also operate until 1pm on Saturdays, instead of the previous noon cut off time. The company wanted truck movements to and from the quarry to be allowed to start

from 6.30am but this was denied and the existing 7am start was maintained. Mr Lock said the earlier start time sought had been one of the residents’ biggest concerns. New conditions include a requirement for reports to be produced by traffic and acoustic experts in three years time to measure whether there have been any unanticipated effects from the increase in traffic; and that trucks are not to use Kerrs Rd in travelling to and from the quarry unless they are making a delivery there.

Hundreds of cows will be on the move next month for the start of the new dairy season, also known as Gypsy Day. The district council is reminding farmers and motorists to be extra cautious on the roads around this time. Observed nationally, Gypsy Day falls on June 1. It marks the changeover of the dairy seasons when farms change ownership and families move entire households, farm equipment and cattle to a new property. Some cows are even moved hundreds of kilometres between the North and South Islands. Care should be taken when driving on rural roads in Selwyn over winter as many cows will be moving between farms if it’s a short distance, or shifted in trucks if they need to travel further. Farmers who are droving their stock will need consent from the New Zealand Transport Agency to move cattle along state highways, and district council consent for roads with a 70km/h speed limit and other high volume roads. Cattle must be moved in mobs smaller than 400 on roads in Selwyn.

Road Metals and the submitters have until June 2 to appeal the decision if they wish. Mr Lock said he had not talked to other residents about the decision yet so he wasn’t in a position to say whether an appeal would be considered. Road Metals’ application had sought an increase in the number of truck movements to a rolling average of 500 truck movements with an upper limit of 650. Evidence from transport engineer Andrew Metherell presented at the hearing suggested

Need for private firefighters in doubt BY TOM DOUDNEY Firefighters who could soon be able to call on back-up from a privately funded fire service say they don’t need the help. The new service would support existing fire brigades in Selwyn, Waimakariri and Christchurch. It is being spearheaded by Rolleston resident Kevin Gardiner who is a director at Gardiner Excavating which is working with Protranz Earthmoving to set it up. However, Selwyn brigade chiefs contacted by the Selwyn Times were sceptical about the idea and said they weren’t in need of any help as they already had plenty of resources available to them. “We are well resourced for the rural area,” Lincoln chief fire officer Jeremy Greenwood said. “Selwyn [District] Council look after us with resources and we have the other brigades around us as well.” Mr Gardiner said he believed there had been occasions where brigades had “fallen short” and the new service would be another resource that could be called upon. “It has been my personal project to help the community with all the scrub fires that Selwyn has been having. We are just trying to help out,” he said. “I’m not trying to stir a hornets’ nest but we have got the resources. We are just going through the process at the moment to try and get accredited to help them.” Mr Gardiner didn’t know how

SHOWING OFF: The fire engine displays what its water can do in front of Clearview Primary pupils. long that would take but he was hoping his team would be “all go next summer.” He saw its main role as being to help out with larger, rural fires. A point of difference from regular brigades in these situations would be the amount of water its tankers could provide, 24,000-30,000 litres each. By comparison, the Rolleston and Kirwee brigade’s largest tankers take 13,000 litres and many tankers around the district carry 7000 litres or less. Protranz Earthmoving has provided all the funding for the new service. The two companies are

connected by Gerard Daldry who is a director of both. A former Palmerston North Airport fire engine has been purchased at a cost of more than $80,000 and about 40 staff from both companies will provide the manpower. Along with the purchase of two new water tankers and other equipment, the company spent more than $150,000 getting set up. The vehicles will be based at Johns Rd, in Christchurch. Mr Gardiner served as a firefighter in New South Wales for three years which including tackling the devastating Blue Mountains bush fires of 2013.

He said the fledgling service had already helped Waimakariri firefighters tackle a scrub fire and a compost fire, both near Oxford, earlier this year. New Zealand Fire Service Canterbury and West Coast area commander Dave Berry said he did not yet know enough about the proposal to comment on it. Mr Gardiner and his crew recently brought the fire engine out to Clearview Primary, where Mr Gardiner’s son goes to school, to show it off to about 120 children. Children got to climb inside and the power of the fire engine’s water cannon was on full display.

A rates remission policy which provides relief to property owners whose dwellings were made uninhabitable as a result of the September 2010 earthquakes has been extended. The district council adopted the policy in October 2010 which allowed for the majority of rates to be waived if a dwelling was uninhabitable following the earthquake and no one was living at the address. It also allows ratepayers to apply to have their rates deferred for a year if they are suffering hardship. The policy has been extended twice since 2010 but was due to expire on June 30. In the past year, 10 applications have been made under the policy and $12,024 in rates has been waived. The policy will remain in place until June 30, 2016.

Craig Crawford

OUR PEOPLE

Connecting sport with community – Craig Crawford started as Lincoln High School head of sport at the beginning of the first school term this year. He spoke to reporter Tom Doudney about what he wants to achieve at the school, some of Lincoln’s young stars of the future and his role in football’s upcoming FIFA Under 20 World Cup. How did you come to this job as head of sport at Lincoln? Were you already teaching there? No, although I am an ex-student. So, 20-odd years ago I went to Lincoln High. I left in 1991 and most of that time since then I have been involved in voluntary sports administration through Halswell United football. I grew up in Ladbrooks and a couple of years ago, I moved back to Lincoln for the family basically. It’s a good place to have a family and I have moved my design business, Evolutioncreative.co.nz, out here as well. So when the job came up I thought I would like to find out more about it and then I found out it would suit me. So you started as head of sport at Lincoln in term one – what has your focus been on to begin with? Right now we are getting games ready for winter sport. We have got 20-odd sports and that means we have got to organise all sorts of things – from getting a teacher or

a coach to take the team or supervise the team, have the kids signed up, the parents’ permission, make sure they have got the gear and the facilities to play the game. The great thing about Lincoln High School is that, it has got some really talented and keen kids and one of the key parts of my role, is to connect the community with the sports because other teachers are busy and we don’t have enough volunteers or people to coach, or manage teams because there are so many active kids. About 40 per cent of the roll are involved in sport at Lincoln, so I want to reach out to the community and align with community sports to make sure these kids are getting what they need, whether it be introducing kids to sport or helping them extend their skills and their knowledge of the game. I really want to open Lincoln High School up more. It operates as a bit of a closed institution in

facilities for them to do that extra training. Some talented sports people have come out of Lincoln High School in the past, like Sophie Pascoe. Is there anyone in particular who is looking like a potential star of the future at the moment? We have got a couple of lads that are trialling for New Zealand rugby at the moment. Jarad Pidcock is

a really good cyclist – he won the local duathlon. Another person who is doing quite well is Lily Alfeld, who is a New Zealand age group football goal keeper and is currently on a sports scholarship in the United States. She is coming back here to do some internship work at the school this month. The school is very well represented in equestrian – we have just won the show jumping and the dressage section of the local Canterbury competition. We have a really good teacher involved there to help us with that – Angela Frampton. How long have you been playing football for Halswell for? Since I was eight. I have played all the way through the grades. I played in the first team for a number of years. I have been working my way down the grades since then but I’m back in the seniors now. This season I have also been working with Lincoln University to get their football programme up and running. That was a partnership between the university and Halswell football. That’s right, because the university didn’t have a team before this year and now this one you’ve helped set up is playing in division 6 right? How did that come about?

key to bringing what’s best for kids We wanted to help Lincoln University make football available for their players. They have got a few scholars down there that go off and play in town but they have also got a lot of international students. Every Tuesday and Thursday they have full games and I have been down playing with those guys and thought they could definitely play in a team together. Having the team also provides a vehicle for attracting international students. So hopefully, in time, we can get people coming to the university to learn and play football so it becomes a bit of a selling point for the university, football being the global game that it is. Are there any football accomplishments while you have been playing that you remember particularly fondly? We won the premier league three years in a row between 1999, 2000 and 2001 which was an awesome accomplishment. We were coached by Steve Wooddin and Kevin Mulgrew, both former All Whites, and they were inspirational. Then I went and did nine years being president of the club, coached the premier women’s team for three years when we got to the senior final of the national knock out cup, and also getting made a life member of the Halswell club last year was a highlight.

What other sports do you play? I played a couple of cricket games for the Lincoln club years ago and played a few games there again recently, just socially. I like squash, golf and futsal is a good new sport. Orienteering, crosscountry running – most sports I have had a go at. What has your working background been between school and now? I started working for an advertising agency and became a graphic designer. I worked at the advertising agency Timezone for a number of years and then I have been freelancing for the last 10 years. How have you found freelancing? Was it daunting going out on your own? I had a couple of clients that helped me into it and it was okay. It is hard work. You have to wear all the hats of being the marketer, the sales person, the designer, the finance person as well. Design was basically a hobby for me originally – I didn’t learn it in school. It was a hobby that turned into a profession, much like the sports co-ordinator roles, so it makes work easy. How did you practice design before it was your profession? Just through T-shirt design and doodling. Touch T-shirts would have been one of the first things

that I did. I did some stuff with Halswell football and there were different art projects that I did too. The design profession has changed so much and that started as soon as I got involved. The whole industry has been flipped from being quite a manual industry to being computer based. I remember getting an ad produced on bromide paper and taking it around to put them in the paper. Then it turned into being able to share files by computer. Outside of design and sport, do you have any other hobbies? There is not much room left after that. I am getting married later this year. My fiancée, Lisa, and I have got three kids between us so we are pretty busy with the 12 and nine-year-old girls and a three-year-old boy. How did you pop the question to Lisa? I took her up to my grandfather’s old farm where I grew up at Karetu Downs, in North Canterbury and we went on a romantic walk. FOOTBALL FANATIC: Crawford has made his contributions to local football on the field, in the office and will now do so behind the microphone as well when he takes on a ground announcing role at the Fifa Under 20 World Cup.

Going back to my other hobbies though, something else I enjoy is ground announcing and I have been given the ground announcing role at the FIFA Under 20 World Cup which starts in June. I have previously done it for Canterbury United and done a few other games in the past as a volunteer, like the New Zealand v Tahiti game a

couple of years ago. Oh, how do you think that will go? The big thing will be trying to get my head around some of the names of the players. I guess some of those Uzbekistani names could be a bit of a challenge. Germany, Fiji and Honduras will be involved as well.

Trust keeps pace with demand BY TOM DOUDNEY After refocusing its services a Selwyn charitable trust is spending more time than ever getting people where they need to go. The Selwyn Central Community Care Trust was formed about 10 years ago to provide assistance to people around Rolleston, West Melton and the area in between. Rolleston resident Mike Gardner, who had both his legs amputated due to circulation problems, said the trust driving him to hospital appointments two or three times a month was “priceless” to him. “They are a real lifeline. What with having no legs it’s a bit difficult to get to certain places, especially with the hospital parking being miles away.” The trust has spent the last six months refreshing its vision and looking at how it can best match its services with the changing needs of the community. Thanks to funding from the Ministry of Social Development, it was able to work with community development specialists Mene Solutions on this. Driving people who cannot drive to important appointments was already one of the trust’s activities but chairwoman Olive Webb said its volunteers were now spending more time than ever doing it. “Selwyn central is arguably the fastest growing part of Selwyn because it includes both Rolleston and West Melton areas which have growth rates that are quite phenomenal,” Ms Webb said.

Big fundraising effort

Many people are actually isolated – elderly people, mothers of young children, people who are new to the country as well as new to the area. A number of people aren’t able to drive themselves from here to there or be completely independent. “So Selwyn Central Community Care Trust is defined right now by drivers who take people to medical or important appointments in town, delivering meals on wheels and just helping people survive in this busy world of ours.” The trust’s activities also include

welcoming newcomers, greeting people from different cultural backgrounds and providing other kinds of assistance to people in need. “What we want people to know is that if they need help going from A to B, or they’re feeling lonely and need help with a particular project they are involved in, if they know of somebody else in need of that kind of help, they should ring us,” Ms Webb said. “If they themselves have spare time and want to become involved in the community then they should also phone us if they want

to join the group.” The trust was seeing an increased number of calls for service but its volunteer numbers had also increased and had so far managed to keep pace with demand. There were currently 20 people volunteering for the trust. “It is volunteer work and we try to be as efficient as we can but I have to say I am blown away by the amount of time that some people are able to give.” •To get in touch with the trust, phone volunteer co-ordinator Juliet Easterbrook on 027 313 1122 or 347 4907.

What councillors say about ECan’s return The Government is preparing for a partial return to democracy at Environment Canterbury with six appointed commissioners and seven elected members. Reporter Tom Doudney asked Mayor Kelvin Coe and district councillors if they approved of the proposal and when they thought full democracy should be returned Kelvin Coe – There is some more debate to be had but I think we can accept the proposal. That’s fine. I think most people want to see ECan returned to full democracy as soon as possible and we need to be certain that this is a transition and not a mixed model that is going to stay there for some time. I would expect to see full democracy by 2019, in the next election cycle, for the transition. Deputy mayor Sarah Walters – The discussion document that the Government has put out about ECan doesn’t make any mention about the proposed structure being a transition and personally I am

only prepared to accept it on that basis and somewhat reluctantly because they haven’t actually been as organised as they needed to be to go full democracy this time. In terms of full democracy, it probably does make sense for it to be the next election in 2019. It would be very unusual to have a whole council all cleaned out at once and have an entirely new council so having some transition between the two is good but there also needs to be some thought given to having ECan structured better in the long term. The commissioners have done some good things for ECan but it really does come down to the community’s choice and you have to admit the ECan commissioners are not very representative of our community.

full democracy is 2016 when the next local government elections come along. We could have had the so called transition period between 2013 and 2016 but the Government chose to completely abandon any democratic contest for ECan and chose to collect tax from us without us having representation.

Councillors

Mark Alexander – It is pleasing to see a return to democracy in a limited form. However, there are insufficient rural councillors and too many appointees. A better split would be six rural, four Christchurch and three appointed commissioners to provide a transition. Ward boundaries need to be released ASAP. A timetable to full democracy in 2019 needs to be announced and the Government needs to commit to that timetable.

Peter Hill – What the Government proposal outlines to me is that they don’t actually trust the people of Canterbury to make decisions on things like their water. The issues raised back in 2009 – 2010 were largely to do with water and the fact that certain people couldn’t get their hands on enough of it I think the time for a return to

Sam Broughton – It’s interesting to have elected people in government saying you can’t trust local elections or elected people. As a transition the proposal seems ok, sometimes outside voices and specific experience can add a lot to the voices of those who are surrounded and directly affected by decisions.

‘Three Wishes’ exhibition Lisa Grennell Timaru born, Lisa Grennell is an emerging New Zealand artist with a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design from the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology, 2010. Lisa runs private screenprinting workshops from her home studio in Nelson and dedicates her time to print making and sketching. This she describes as a “nice balance” from the random, instant expression of screenprinting, to the methodical precision of fine detailed drawing.

Perhaps the make-up of future ECans should reflect the geography affected by decisions which is vast, rather than the particular places people live which is concentrated. I’d like to see how the new format operates before putting a definite time on a fully elected board but I want them to be heading in that direction. If there are good reasons for Canterbury to have this new format of governance perhaps it should be used across the rest of the country. Malcolm Lyall – As far as the return of democracy at ECan goes I do believe that we do need to have some form of continuity but I don’t believe the model they have put up is justifiable. I believe it is far too heavily weighted in favour of the urban and not the rural sector. I would much rather see a lesser number of commissioners and a larger number of elected representatives, particularly from the rural areas, but I do think we have to have some form of transition. However, as a very famous American said, there should be no taxation without representation and democracy is sadly missing in Canterbury at the moment. Nigel Barnett – I support what they are proposing. I think the progress that has been made has

HAVE YOUR SAY What do you think of the Government’s proposal for partial democracy at ECan from next year? tom.doudney@ starmedia.kiwi in 250 words or less. been good. I guess what I didn’t like about the whole system was that it seemed to be two factions battling each other about what were the issues and trying to beat each other over the head with a stick over it and nothing necessarily being achieved. I think since the commissioners have been in they have changed things and shown a willingness to work with people, especially in the rural areas. I think they have engaged well and the zone committees have worked well and have given the community a reasonable input. I think everyone would like a return to full democracy but my concern would be that we could end up with exactly the same situation we had before and some of the effects that have been put in place could be lost. As a transitional thing I think it could be good but that would depend on whether some of the commissioners that have been there would be available because if they come in with new appointments I think you would lose a lot of the benefit of having that transitional period.

to partial democracy I think in three years’ time we should probably go back to full democracy and hope that people’s views are more global than perhaps they were earlier on. Pat McEvedy – I think this partial transition is a good thing. I think we have made quite a lot of progress environmentally with the commissioners and whilst it’s not the ideal in a democratic situation I do think for the way things are going at the moment it’s the best option to see the Canterbury Water Management Strategy through to fruition. When should full democracy be restored? That’s a really tough question. Ideally it would be good to get back to full democracy in 2019 but I think the transition needs to be handled very carefully because ECan is in a good place at the moment. Their staff seem to have grown in confidence around how they manage these vital water issues in Canterbury and it is critical that people are left to perform with the comfort of knowing they have really good support and I think they feel this way with the commissioners now. Grant Miller – My personal view is that it’s a good transition. You have got lots of institutional NEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf knowledge and experience in

the commissioners, which is invaluable. I am pretty open-minded about it. This is a unique situation in Canterbury postearthquake. After three years we would have a good gauge on whether you have a gradual reduction in appointees or you could say ‘hey, this is actually working well and maybe we continue with things as they are.’ Obviously we want democracy but we also want the best option for the region. I think the chairmanship is crucial as well. Dame Margaret has done a good job and whoever is chair [going forward] will be critical. John Morten­– I think it’s a good transitional move. Not dwelling on history too much but the structure we had before wasn’t working for a lot of well documented political reasons or infighting or party divisions or whatever it was, so the Government appointed the commissioners and I think over the period they have been involved they have made really good progress on the water issues and some other issues so that was a plus. I think the structure they are 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m. proposing is a good compromise

to take us forward. Now it will presumably be reviewed again in three years’ time. The interesting thing about the three rural appointments is, I am presuming there will be one north of the Waimakariri, one south of the Rakaia and one in between. They will have a territory bigger than an MP and that will be quite a challenge for those people to represent that large of an area. I think it would be good to review the situation and the timeline for full democracy in perhaps 18 months or so. Jeff Bland – My feeling is that the proposal is reasonable. I would like to return to full democracy as it was but perhaps with a lead in period of a couple of years. We are a democratic country and that’s why we enjoy the life we have now. I would certainly like to see full democracy by the 2019 elections. I’m not against the fact they had commissioners in there. I’m sure they have done a good job but you can’t just keep commissioners in there - unless they want to stand for election and become councillors. •District councillor Debra Hasson did not respond to requests for comment.

Lincoln and Districts Community Care will be hosting a session run by Gratitude Fitness called Pelvic Floor Matters on June 24. Topics covered by presenting physiotherapists will include good pelvic floor health and the importance of still doing exercise for health and well being. The session will be held at the Community Care building, 16 Lyttelton St, 7.30pm to 8.30pm with a gold coin donation required. Early registrations are important as it may be a popular workshop. Those interested can phone 325-2007. June is national continence awareness month and this year’s theme is support for New Zealand carers. It relates to family, friends and carers and the need to better support those who have the challenge of caring for someone who is incontinent.

near Springfield in 2012. Now, just over three years on, the fifth such event returns to the Springfield area. On behalf of the GRACI Foundation (Gynaecology Cancer Research Trust), it will be held as a fundraiser on June 14. The event will be held on hill farmland at Brooksdale Farm, accessed from State Highway 73, 7km west of Springfield, and will involve teams of two to four, on horseback. The teams navigate with a map to score checkpoints marked on it. The checkpoints have differing points values. Teams collect points by visiting as many checkpoints as possible in the time available. The map will be designed especially for the event. Organiser, Carol Fowler, who has organised Canterbury’s four previous equestrian rogaines, said that the Brooksdale event would offer excellent navigational variety.

Soldiers of Selwyn World War 1 claimed the lives of about 18,000 New Zealand soldiers, while a further 41,000 were injured or fell ill. To honour those from Selwyn, a project was undertaken by volunteer historian Lynda Seaton on behalf of Selwyn Libraries to identify, research and record every soldier whose name was recorded on a World War 1 memorial in the district. To mark the centenary of the conflict, the Selwyn Times continues its weekly series, Soldiers of Selwyn. • Lance Corporal Albert Henry Lugg Albert Henry Lugg was born on June 17, 1888, to William John and Annie Elizabeth Lugg, of Springston. He was working as a ploughman in the North Island before enlisting on October 19, 1915 and being assigned to the 9th Reinforcements, Wellington Infantry Battalion, B Company. Lugg was admitted to hospital with influenza in November, while in camp at Tauhernikau. He embarked for Suez on January 8, 1916. After training in Egypt he left for the front in France with the 1st Battalion Wellington Infantry, 17th Company in April. Lugg suffered a gunshot wound to his left ankle during the Somme battles on September 13, but was treated and stayed with his unit.

He fought through the Somme campaign and was promoted to Lance Corporal on April 1, 1917. The harsh conditions took a toll and he was admitted to No 1 General Hospital at Boulogne on June 5 with conjunctivitis. Two weeks later he re-joined his battalion in the field but was then killed in action on June 26, aged 29. Lugg’s body was not found or identified and his name is on the Messines Ridge Memorial to the Missing and the Springston War Memorial. • Sergeant Percival James Upston Percival James Upston was born in Leeston on June 7, 1895, to John and Mary Jane Upston. He worked on his father’s farm and was one of the best backs in

the Dunsandel Football Club. Upston enlisted on April 19, 1915, was assigned to the Canterbury Infantry Battalion, 6th Reinforcements, and embarked on August 15. He joined the battalion in Mudros on the island of Lemnos, 50km from Gallipoli. His battalion was evacuated from Gallipoli to Alexandria and sent to Ismailia for training where he was transferred to the Machine Gun Company on March 4, 1916. During his time at Ismailia, he was admitted to hospital with mumps but by April 6, he had recovered enough to embark for France with the 1st Company. Upston was promoted to Lance Corporal on May 29 and to full corporal on February 28, 1917, after Corporal Lock was evacuated to Base Depot. He was promoted again to Sergeant on June 8 but was killed in action on July 31, 1917, aged 22. After fighting through the Messines battle he had two weeks respite before the machine gunners took part in the second attempt to capture the small village of La Basseville, laying down a barrage to cover the advance of the infantry. As Upston’s body was not recovered or identified, his name is on the Messines Ridge Memorial to the Missing, as well as the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Irwell plaque and the Dunsandel War Memorial.

• Lance Corporal John Burgess John Burgess was born on December 29, 1896, at Dunsandel, to James and Helen Burgess. Before enlisting, on May 30, 1915, he was working as a farm hand for his father at Dunsandel. He had previous military experience having been in the Senior Cadets. Burgess was assigned to the Rifle Brigade, 3rd Battalion, and embarked on February 5, 1916, for Suez and then on to France. He was wounded in action on September 15, suffering a gunshot wound to the chest. After initial treatment at the No 23 General Hospital at Etaples he was sent to England aboard the HS Brighton and admitted to New End Hospital, Hampstead on October 1. After two months treatment there, he was sent on to recuperate at Hornchurch and then to Codford. After spending Christmas there, he was sent on to the Reserve group at Sling Camp. It was not until May 28, 1917, that he arrived back in the Base Depot in Etaples. Burgess rejoined his unit in the field and was promoted to Lance Corporal on July 10. However, on August 6 he was killed in action, aged 21. Burgess is buried in the Bethlehem Farm West Cemetery,

Messines, and remembered on the Dunsandel War Memorial. • Private Walter Carter – 32432      Walter Carter was born in Leeston on January 26, 1896, to John and Margaret Carter of Leeston. He worked as a grocer’s assistant in Christchurch and had previous military experience with the Rolleston Engineers. Carter enlisted on July 27, 1916, and was assigned to the 19th Reinforcements Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company. After falling ill with measles in camp at Featherstone on September 20, he was admitted to hospital and discharged on October 4. He embarked for Devonport on November 15, leaving England for the front in France on July 6, 1917. At Etaples he was posted to the 2nd Battalion, Canterbury Infantry, 13th Company and joined his unit in the field. Carter was killed in action on August 6, 1917, aged 20. The 13th Company had occupied the newly established posts to the east and north-east of La Basse Ville and the enemy’s shelling was concentrated mainly on La Basse Ville and its immediate neighbourhood. • Continued, p12-13

Carter’s body was not found or identified and his name is on the Messines Ridge Memorial to the Missing, as well as the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Leeston plaque, the Doyleston War Memorial and the Southbridge School Roll of Honour. • Lance Corporal William David Gold William David Gold was born in Dunsandel on February 21, 1892, to William and Johnanna Gold. Before enlisting, on August 20, 1914, he was working as a labourer at Kowai Bush. He had previous military experience having served with the Canterbury Yeomanry Cavalry. Gold was the first in the area to enlist, and when war was declared, he remarked that he would be ready to go in half an hour. He was assigned to the Canterbury Mounted rifles and embarked for Suez with the Main Body on October 16. Gold joined the fighting on Gallipoli on May 9, 1915, and was wounded in the hip during fighting on Walkers Ridge on July 8. He was evacuated by hospital ship Gascon to Tigne Hospital in Malta.

He re-joined his unit on Mudros on September 15 but fell ill with influenza and was admitted to the casualty clearing station, then the 15 Stationary Hospital on October 17 with enteritis. After finally recovering enough to leave Mudros, he arrived in Alexandria on January 10, 1916, re-joining his unit at Zeitoun the next day. He was posted to 1st Mounted Rifles at Hagley Park Camp on March 9, 1916. However, Gold’s ill health was not over and after having a bad reaction to an inoculation he was sent to hospital at Kantara on July 14 for three days. He came down with a bout of influenza on April 5, 1917, and was treated in the field. He was promoted Lance Corporal on May 10. On August 14 Gold died, aged 25, of gunshot wounds to his abdomen and left arm received two days earlier. The day of his death, August 14th, was the third anniversary of his enlistment. He is buried at Kantara War Memorial Cemetery, Suez, and remembered on the Kowai Bush War Memorial. • Private Percy Harold Smith Percy Harold Smith was born in Christchurch on March 27, 1882, to John Wesley and Mary Anne Smith.

On August 13, only three weeks after his arrival, he was admitted to Tidworth Military Hospital in a comatose condition. He died the next day, aged 35, of status epileptic. This is when an epileptic seizure lasts more than five minutes or there is more than one seizure within a five minute period without the person returning to normal between them.

He was an active member of the local cricket club, holding the position of treasurer until he left on active service. Fleming enlisted on March 7, 1916, and was assigned to the 14th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company. He was placed in isolation at Featherstone camp on June 8, 1916, because of illness. He was promoted to Lance Corporal June 20, before being posted to the Canterbury Regiment and embarking for Devonport on June 26. As was usual, he then reverted to the ranks. On June 8 he received a gunshot wound to the neck and was admitted to the No 11 Casualty Clearing Station and then to the No 14 General Hospital at Wimereux. The wound was slight and he was sent to convalesce at Boulogne before joining the reserves at Base Depot Etaples for a couple of weeks and re-joining his unit again on July 25.

He was killed in action on August 16, 1917, aged 32, while the New Zealand forces were attempting to hold La Basseville under heavy artillery bombardment and sniping. His body was not found or identified and his name is on the Messines Ridge Memorial to the Missing, as well as the Tai Tapu War Memorial. • Private Ronald Hunter White Ronald Hunter White was born in Christchurch on January 15, 1895, to James and Agnes White. Before enlisting on September 21, 1916, he was farming at Shand’s Track, Prebbleton. He had previous military experience having been in the Senior Cadets and also spent time with the Coast Defence unit. White was assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade, Reinforcements, G Company and embarked with them for England on January 19, 1917. After arrival, he was posted to 9th Company but then admitted to the Endell St Military Hospital in London on May 6. He was transferred to the hospital at Walton on Thames on May 30 with influenza and bronchitis. It was four weeks until he got back to Codford Camp. White joined the Wellington Infantry Reserve group at Sling Camp on August 7 and left for France on August 20. However, it seems he had not fully recovered because just five days later he was admitted to the No 24 General Hospital at Etaples and died there on September 3, 1917, of lobar pneumonia. He is buried at the Etaples Military Cemetery, France, and remembered on the Prebbleton War Memorial.

• Rifleman Frank Percy Charles Smith Frank Percy Charles Smith was born on November 14, 1881, to Charles and Adelaide Jane Smith of Christchurch. He was a prominent figure in sporting circles with his prowess as a cricketer and miniature rifle shot having earned him particular distinction. He worked in Prebbleton as a butcher. Smith enlisted on October 3, 1916, and was assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade, Reinforcements G Company. Early in his military career his marksmanship was recognised by his superiors and he was selected as a sniper in the Rifle Battalion. He was promoted to Lance Corporal on January 16, 1917, and left for England on February 12. Smith arrived in Sling Camp on May 2 where, as usual, he reverted to the ranks. He left for the front in France on June 6. He joined the 1st Battalion, 3rd New Zealand Rifle Brigade and was posted to A company in the field. In August and September the 1st and 3rd Battalions went to the 25th Divisional Area near Ypres to lay cables between Hooge and Ypres. Smith was wounded in action on September 10 and admitted to the No 72 Field Ambulance with shell wounds to his head. He died of his wounds on September 11, aged 35. Smith is buried in the Bedford House Cemetery, Ypres, and remembered on the Prebbleton War Memorial.

HITTING THE TARGET: Dana Austin’s shooting from 60m at the Ben Avery range in the Arizona Cup.

Archer on target BY TOM DOUDNEY A sharpshooter with dreams of being an Olympian is on target for a bright future in archery. West Melton resident Dana Austin, 15, recently returned from the Arizona Cup – an international archery event in the United States city of Phoenix. Dana produced a respectable show-

ing, placing 33rd equal out of 57 while competing for a New Zealand development team in the cadets (youth) section which included a number of archers older than herself. Dana said it has been a great experience and she was proud of her performance, having achieved a personal best score of 450. “It was definitely good preparation for the future, especially getting used to

different climates and surroundings,” she said. Dana, who is ranked seventh for her age group in New Zealand, hopes to one day represent New Zealand at the Olympic Games. Having competed in the Arizona Cup has enabled her to qualify for September’s Youth Commonwealth Games in Samoa. •More sport, pages 21 & 22

Ingredients ¾ cup Walnuts 2 Garlic cloves ⅓ cup BBQ tomato sauce 1 Spring onion 1¼ kgs Pork sirloin 1 to drizzle Olive oil 1 handful Salt & freshly ground pepper Directions Heat oven to 190 deg C. To make the stuffing, place the walnuts and crushed garlic in a mini food processor, pulse to chop, then combine with the tomato sauce and finely chopped spring onion. Place pork loin skin-side down on a chopping board and season all over with salt and pepper. Spread the stuffing down the centre of the pork loin. Roll up and secure with string. Transfer the pork to an oven pan. Drizzle with a little olive oil, then rub salt into the skin to help the crackling form. Roast for one hour and 15 minutes or until when pierced the meat juices run clear. Cover and rest the pork for 10 minutes before carving. TIP As a guide when roasting pork, allow 30 minutes per 500g. Cooked in this way the pork is full of flavour.

Register your dog online

This year dog owners will be able to register or re-register dogs and pay registration fees online through the Council’s website. The new system will make it easier and faster to register your dog and pay dog registration fees. Through the new online system you can also update your address and add or remove a dog, or request a new dog tag if this is lost. Dog registration emails or papers are sent out in June with registration due by 31 July. Earlier this month, many dog owners will have been sent an email from the Council’s Animal Services team. If you did not receive an email and are a dog owner, we need your email address so that we can set you up to use the online registration system. Please email dogrego@selwyn.govt.nz by 12 June with your email address, name and your dog registration number or numbers. Dog registration numbers are found on your dog’s tag. Once we have this information we will email you information in June on how you can register your dog and pay your registration fees online. The new online system is easy to use and allows you to register your dog from home. You can pay registration fees online through Poli using your own bank’s payments system or with a credit card. There is a small service fee for a credit card payment of 72 cents for one dog. If registration is paid by the due date of 31 July, it costs $35 to register your first dog and $25 to register any other dogs. If you do not have an email address or internet access we will still post you a hard copy of your dog registration papers.

Youth Market coming to Selwyn

Local Approved Products Policy Adopted

Young entrepreneurs are being invited to set up a stall at a market during Youth Week. The Selwyn Youth Council is organising a market and Skate Jam at Rolleston Skate Park on Saturday 30 May from 12-3pm.

The Council last week adopted a local approved products policy following consultation and feedback on a draft policy. The policy restricts any future sales of psychoactive substances (commonly known as ‘legal highs’) to a small area in central Rolleston. The selling of psychoactive substances is controlled by the Ministry of Health. The Ministry requires all retailers to have their products tested and approved as low risk. The Ministry also issues licenses to retailers to sell the product.

“We believe that the market will be a brilliant outlet for the youth of Selwyn to practice their entrepreneurship in a supportive environment. It will give young people a way to better develop their financial literacy and skill, with people that they know and trust at the heart of their community,” says Rafael Clarke, Selwyn Youth Council Chairperson.

Under new legislation, the Council has the option to develop a Local Approved Products Policy. The Council’s policy can only regulate where products can be sold and cannot prohibit the sale of legal highs in the District.

Young people aged between 12 and 24 can register to have a free stall by emailing Chris.Martin@selwyn. govt.nz, phoning 347 2754 or visiting the ‘Sensational Selwyn Youth’ Facebook page. People of all ages are invited to come along to the market and check out the stalls which will include vintage clothing, cup cakes, arts and crafts and more. The skate jam will include free gear hire, a have a go competition, prizes and live music. Cheapskates Skate School will also be offering free skate lessons. A Roller Disco will also be running in Leeston on Saturday 30 May at The Station from 7.30-9.30pm, following on from a Roller Disco in Darfield on 1 May. $5 entry covers skate hire and a free hot chocolate, and there will be a DJ, café, live music and prizes. Youth Week runs from 23-31 May and recognises the amazing contributions and achievements of young people in New Zealand.

Get your Selwyn Ski Guide

The ski season is just around the corner and you can pick up a guide to Selwyn’s six ski fields from a local library or check out information online at www.skiselwynsix.co.nz. Selwyn has a range of ski fields catering to every ability and age. Broken River, Mt Olympus, Cheeseman, Porters, Craigeburn and Temple Basin are all located in Selwyn. A new four seater chair lift will start operating at Porters this winter. When the ski season opens you can also check the weather forecast and condition reports online by visiting www.skiselwynsix.co.nz.

Council Call CC190515

Selwyn District Council Norman Kirk Drive Rolleston Ph 347 2800 or 318 8338

If the Council does not develop a policy, then limitations on where retailers can sell legal highs would be guided by District Plan rules, which would provide less control on where legal high retailers could operate from. 78 submissions were received on the Council’s draft policy. Many submissions requested that the Council ban the sale of approved products in Selwyn. Currently there are no stores selling legal highs in Selwyn and the Council is not aware of any retailers planning to establish stores. As a result of concerns raised in submissions about retail stores potentially locating near Rolleston School and the Council’s concern around the lack of supervision of any activities on the vacant land west of the Council Headquarters after hours, the Council has reduced the area in which retailers selling approved products could locate in central Rolleston. The vacant land between the Council Headquarters and the State Highway has been removed from the permitted area. The permitted area runs along Rolleston Drive between the New World and Countdown supermarkets and takes in the area around Countdown. A map showing the permitted area is available online at www.selwyn.govt.nz. The policy does not allow for approved products to be sold in any other areas in Selwyn. Under the policy retailers selling legal highs also cannot locate within 100 metres of another retailer selling these products. The Council has also written a letter to the Minister of Health setting out its concerns with the legislation relating to psychoactive substances. The Council was concerned that it was unable to adequately represent the views of the community (as many submitters wanted to ban approved products in Selwyn) but could not because of the government’s legislation. The Council also highlighted the financial cost of developing a policy that is unable to adequately address the community’s concerns. Selwyn’s adopted policy is similar to policies in place in neighbouring Ashburton and Christchurch where permitted areas for legal highs have been established in the central business areas of Ashburton and Christchurch City.

Fenced dog training area at Foster Dog Park The Selwyn Dog Training Club are shortly to erect a small fenced area, 23 metres by 23 metres at Foster Dog Park to the side of the club rooms. The club plans to use this area as a training area for new, young or unconfident dogs. The club will pay for the cost of constructing the fence. The club plans to use the area for training sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6.30-9pm and on Sundays from 10am-12pm. At other times the fenced area would be available for the public to use as a training area for young, small or unconfident dogs. If you wish to discuss this change please contact Douglas Marshall, Manager of Property and Commercial on 347 2701. Background Foster Dog Park is a 2 hectare park located on the corner of Goulds and Springston-Rolleston

Road and provides an off leash dog exercise area. The Selwyn Dog Training Club uses Foster Dog Park for training on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6.30-9pm, on Sundays from 10am-12pm and occasionally at weekends for competitions. At these times dog owners are asked to keep their dogs on a lead and well away from the training area. The club has a lease with Council and it is proposed that the club would continue to use the dog park at these times in the future, and also use the fenced area at the times indicated above, with the fenced area being able to be used by the public at other times.

A PERFECT FIT! A purpose-designed plan to suit your lifestyle - for LESS than a standard plan! A FREE LUXURY WEEKEND FOR TWO IN FIJI with every Onyx Home!

By Richard Freeman ~ Director Onyx Homes Ltd Offer until June 20th, 2015. *Travel date conditions apply.

• Don’t believe everything you hear in the media - some building companies trying to margin enhance, making ridiculous statements about huge building price increases. • If you want genuine best pricing and top quality give Onyx Homes a call. You are guaranteed to talk to LOCAL industry professionals with years of experience rather than a sales person trained over night drafted into the industry with limited knowledge and zero idea on building costs working off a pre prepared song sheet. A sad but true statement in many cases. • Honesty, integrity, experience and common sense always outweighs “smoke and mirrors” and unfortunately common sense is not that common in many cases. Building commodity prices ARE stable, and I will personally guarantee that.

The management team of Onyx Homes are quite simply some of the best and most experienced people in the industry. It’s through this experience that Onyx Homes wants to bring to their customers a better standard of home that is often less than the standard-planbuilt homes of their competitors. Onyx believe that everyone is unique, so why settle for a standard-plan-home when you can have a purpose-designed plan to suit exactly your lifestyle and for less than a standard plan? A perfect fit! This is testament to our customers who have been amazed at the savings with Onyx, but also hadn’t realised their budget would allow for a such quality spec and design.

GARDENING

www.igro.co.nz

Use a focal point to plan your garden One of the most difficult challenges of creating a new garden is the age old question: where do I start? And one good answer is: with a focal point. Whether you’re creating a design on a 500 sq m plot or trying to fill a hectare or two, the solution is the same, the only difference being that a large garden can support several focal points in different areas. Inspiration for the entire garden can often be provided by the focal point. Starting by hunting for a statue, an urn, a sculpture or a fountain from which the rest of the garden design will spring. In a small, formal, Mediterranean-style garden, for example, the centrepiece should

dictate the shapes that surround it, giving a structured, geometric look with hedges and paths. A limited palette of plants will further enhance the design and allow the focal point of the garden to be exactly that. In a larger garden there can be a number of focal points. A collection of sculptures or urns can be positioned throughout the space so that each is the climax of a journey of discovery through the landscape. Although it sounds ambitious, the pieces need not be expensive – simple glazed pots or even garden seats can be used. Give some thought to creating a ‘stage set’ for each piece. Plonking a pot or a deck chair at the edge of

the lawn isn’t going to do the trick. Start by forming a base for your piece – perhaps an area of pebbles or shells contained by rocks or sleepers, or a small paved platform. You can add a sense of enclosure by constructing a pergola overhead, or a simple, three sided fence or low hedge. A path leading to your sanctuary will give a sense of direction and discovery within the garden, and it can be as simple as a few pavers set into the lawn. And if, at this rather dull time of year, you’re yearning for something bright and vibrant in the garden, choose a centrepiece that vibrates with colour. It’ll make you smile every time you come across it.

CENTREPIECE: Even a small fountain can be used to make a strong focal point.

gardening without guesswork Our vege garden is in full shade for 4 months from early May to the end of August. What veges can I grow over winter? I have rhubarb and mint already growing. Should I plant garlic at the usual time (shortest day) or wait a month or two? The beds have been raised to assist drainage, filled with compost and pea straw dug into the soil. P.S. We can’t relocate the garden to a sunny spot.

Question:

It is not unusual to have a problem of shade in the winter months. May to August is for most gardens, a time when veggies that have been planted in the late summer and autumn are harvested. If your veggie crops such as silver beet, cabbage, carrots, parsnips, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, and leeks are almost at maturity now, they will survive through the winter months. However, if you plant seedlings now, they will not grow due to the cooler temperatures and lower light levels. The best option for this time of year is to prepare your gardens for planting in the spring. As for your garlic, yes you can plant it at the usual time. It is very clever and will grow in its own good time in response to the conditions. for more information, check out our website: www.intelligro.co.nz or visit our facebook Thanks to Jenny for her question – page: www.facebook.com/igro.co.nz we hope you enjoy your prize pack

Growing Garlic

Garlic is a staple, hardy and reliable crop that will thrive as long as it has a sunny aspect and a well dug, fertile soil. Once planted it is pretty much a “nonfuss” crop that - as long as the area is kept weed free over winter and spring - you can pretty leave it to its own devices.

Rural Business Network

launches free mentoring initiative

T

he Rural Business Network (RBN), in partnership with Business Mentors New Zealand (BMNZ), has launched a new initiative to increase mentoring support to rural businesses throughout New Zealand, which are facing increasing levels of stress from falling dairy prices, tighter regulations on health and safety, and environmental controls. The new Rural Mentor initiative sees the BMNZ registration fee waived for selected New Zealand Young Farmers (NZYF) and Rural Business Network members for a limited period. “Farmers in the sheep, beef or dairy sector operating their own business or farm managers that want a fresh perspective, will be matched with a business professional who can offer confidential advice, assistance and support that will help overcome business challenges, set new goals and achieve success,” Rural Business Network coordinator Daile Jones says. “There’s no lack of knowledge out there, just a shortage of knowing what information is available.

CEO of Business Mentors New Zealand Ray Schofield says the purpose of this initiative is to assist rural businesses and remove any real or perceived barriers to business owners accessing support from BMNZ. “Business mentors are experienced, successful business people, who come from a wide range of industry backgrounds, from farm gate and beyond, who understand New Zealand business. They are passionate, committed individuals who want to see their communities and New Zealand grow and prosper. Our locally based coordinators are highly skilled in matching the right mentor to fit individual needs. “A business mentor is unique one-to-one, confidential and highly experienced in the trials and tribulations of running a small to medium-sized enterprise. One of the big things is the isolation which rural businesses are often faced with. A business mentor takes that away and provides a sounding board to take the company to the next level.” Business Mentors New Zealand is the country’s only national volunteer business

T

FAR CEO Nick Pyke says agricultural production is entering a period of major change. “Yield and productivity gains are still important, but as growers know, we must now find ways of achieving those gains

and feeding the growing world without compromising environmental factors such as biodiversity, fresh water and soil.” The one-day workshops will be run by Dr Charles Merfield of the Future Farming Centre, who says they will cover the key issues and practical solutions of sustainable agriculture. “Some of the tools that have been the mainstay of 20th century farming, such as pesticides and mineral fertilisers, are facing growing challenges such as resistance and restrictions on use.

GETING THE RIGHT FIRST AID TRAINING

N

ot all first aid certificates are created equal. While first aid courses must achieve prescribed New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) standards to be certified, not all training providers deliver the same course. There can be big differences in first aid courses among a range of training providers. Some courses range from teaching only the basic NZQA specified content and nothing else, to providing detailed and comprehensive content designed to familiarise participants to a wide range of likely emergencies. Providers offering shortened courses or courses not meeting NZQA Training Requirements are now in the spotlight. NZQA and the Department of Labour have published a factsheet to outline requirements for providers, learners and employers for first aid training based on currently registered NZQA unit standards. Below are a summary of what we think you should know. Course differences Training providers can market their courses under a wide range of names such as ‘Essential First Aid’, ‘Workplace First Aid’ or ‘Comprehensive First Aid’ and many other eye-catching titles. The term ‘workplace’ can vary from a small office to a large factory where the risks and potential injuries are just as wide. Employers should be cautious in thinking that a one-day workplace first aid course will meet their needs in industries such as construction, engineering, forestry and industrial. More advanced learning is important to meet the proper workplace assessments and meet health and safety obligations. The content of courses can also vary. Employers should check to see the first aid course is relevant to their particular industry risks. If there are risks of falling, or medium to high injury, then take care in the shortened courses as these subjects may not be covered. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that employees attend courses appropriate to their industry risks. Unit standard-based first aid training These are the minimum requirements for both the initial and refresher training. The minimum duration of first aid training and assessment will be, for training based on: months from date of issue, a minimum of six hours training and assessment. • Unit Standards 6400, 6401 (or 26552) and 6402 (or 26551) - a minimum of 12 hours training First aid training must cover the outcomes of the NZQA first aid unit standards being assessed and assessment and any additional modules identified by the employer through the workplace risk assessment • Unit Standards 6401 (or 26551) and 6402 (or 26552) - a minimum of eight hours training and process as outlined in Department of Labour guidelines. assessment Only first aid training providers accredited by NZQA can award the credits and issue a first aid • For refresher training, where the learner’s certificate is no older than two years and three certificate. Care needs to be taken to ensure that the provider is actually registered with NZQA for this purpose. NZQA conduct regular External Evaluative Reviews on all training providers. New Zealand NEW ZEALAND RED CROSS Red Cross is proud to hold a double Highly Confident accreditation in both Educational GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING Performance and Capability in Self-Assessment.

First aid refresher training Refresher training is required every two years to maintain the certificates. This is a requirement and not something for the provider to decide. The requirement allow for a three-month period of grace, so the cut of period is two years and three months, which should allow sufficient time to enrol into a suitable course. The refresher training should ensure the certificate holder is current in first aid practice appropriate to their individual workplace requirements.

or Freeman White, home is where the art is. Home also happens to be in the heart of Hawke’s Bay where a renovated colonial villa doubles as Freeman’s home and studio. Renovations to it began after he graduated from The Learning Connexion in 2001. It has been, in his eyes, “an evolving work of art in its own right.” Just as home renovating requires a whopping amount of dedication and discipline, so too does the journey of becoming a self-sustaining artist. In Freeman’s case, all his work and constant practice paid off when, in 2006, he won first prize at the Adam Portrait Awards with his textural painting ‘Portrait of Hans’. “Winning was the most definitive point in my early artistic career,” explains Freeman. “This legitimised my work and allowed me to get my name recognised. It also opened up a number of opportunities.” Since that first major coup, Freeman’s paintings have been showcased in the separate Adam Portrait Awards and other shows such as the Hawke’s Bay Invitational and the Norsewear Art Awards. Freeman’s work has appeared in highly regarded publications in New Zealand, and seven of his paintings reside in the collection of the New Zealand Portrait Gallery. The Royal Society of New Zealand has also collected his works; a testament to Freeman’s timeless and original style. It is no surprise then that he was nominated ‘Wellington’s Top Artist’ by the Wellington Capital Times’ ‘Best of 2010’ poll.

Self-portrait of Freeman White

Freeman’s artistic journey has seen him undertake a number of artist residencies in locations as diverse as Edinburgh and Louisiana. “I have always found these experiences inspiring and they always produce definitive work,” he says. “There is no better way to travel really. I love doing residencies…it’s like a dream come true.” Painting commissions (such as portraits for the recent What We Do in the Shadows film), as well as exhibiting work, ensures Freeman’s creative career remains sustainable. At the same time, he continues to evolve his thick and loose impasto style of painting, which is at the core of his perceptive portraits and iconic landscapes. And, always ready to up the ante, he searches out new opportunities and goals, one of which is to eventually win the coveted Wallace Art Awards. But it is his passion to steadily grow as an artist which is truly the foundation upon which he builds his flourishing career from his home base in the bay.

mall or large, colourways and materials are all considerations that will ultimately determine the look and feel of your bathroom. Small spaces benefit from smaller tiles, such as mosaics. However, keep the number of colours to a minimum; monochrome colour palettes will make the space appear larger.

polished surfaces on the floor though, for safety, and save them for the walls. For an ultra-modern aesthetic, opt for large tiles in bathrooms with a generous floor area. Larger format tiles, as large as 600 by 600mm, come in a wide range of natural materials like stone, ceramic and slate. If you’re confident with colour, choose a bold hue for just one area like the shower, over the washbasin, as a strip vertically down one wall or horizontally to accentuate the space. Another way to personalise with tiles is by creating a border with a bright pop of colour, or make a subtle distinction by using complementary hues in a different material or finish. When used cleverly, tiles can have a huge impact on a room. Use a strip of colour that travels vertically down the wall and extends across the floor. Even if you adore colour, it pays to keep the palette to a minimum of three colours so as not to confuse the focus of a room, but don’t be afraid to mix finishes. Get creative by poring over interior magazines, design blogs and bathroom showrooms, and collate all your favourite looks to sift through. Of course you can’t incorporate all your ideas, but after a while you’ll begin to see a pattern emerge of your own unique style. If in doubt, hire a professional bathroom designer or an interior architect. For the best results, enlist an experienced tiler.

BATHING BEAUTY Even with a limited budget, a characterful bathroom with personality can be achieved with a little creativity.

I

f you want to upcycle a regular bathroom, then changing the tiling or flooring is often one of the cheapest ways of creating an impact. If you’re tiling only a small area, then you might decide to invest in a few expensive tiles. It can be worth checking in tile stores for end of lines, which are often available at highly discounted prices. Some tiles wear better on floors than others. Porcelain and cement tiles are both more water-resistant than ceramic or marble tiles, and for that reason are considered better choices for bathroom floors. Mixing new purchases with upcycled ones can be approached in a variety of ways. One option when buying new is to choose pieces in classic styles. Classic pieces always look current, regardless of context, and mix well with all design eras. Bathrooms don’t need to be stark and without decoration. They’re an excellent space for hanging pictures, which are easier to see close up in what is often a small space. You can create a collage, hang china plates or a collection of pretty mirrors, or a Mix chain-store basics with vintage finds unearthed from skips for a truly unique bathroom decor. statement piece for a wow factor.

Patchwork tiling can be very attractive. Mix a few expensive favourites in among the more standard ones.

There are a few practical considerations. Space will usually be tight, so hang your displays where they won’t be knocked off every time you open a cabinet door, for example. Remember, too, that sprays, such as perfume and hairspray, are often used in the bathroom, so any artwork needs to be protected under glass. Then there is the damage that moisture can cause to pictures. Although today’s bathrooms and shower rooms are fitted with ventilation and heating systems, some moisture can still seep underneath conventional frames over time. To prevent this, there are “weatherproof ” or “waterproof ” picture frames available. A professional framer will be able to frame your pictures to help protect them from the effects of condensation.

Dry as a bone Tackle home dampness problems at their source, and ensure you have adequate home insulation and heat, and ventilate your home properly.

U

nless you've actually looked for the source of the dampness, trying to solve it with dehumidifiers and ventilation systems may just mask the problem rather than actually fix it. If you are having issues with excessive moisture/dampness and poor indoor air quality, follow these steps: If you can get under your house, check floors for signs of dampness there. Look for any mould or mildew. Take some dirt and rub it firmly on your hand; if it stains like mud, there is probably too much moisture present. There are several things you can do to fix underfloor damp: Check for water getting under the floor from drainage, guttering, downpipes or plumbing problems. Uncover any vents that may have become blocked by plants, soil or to keep pests out. Clear the subfloor area of any obstructions. Get vents installed if there aren’t any. Put a vapour barrier down (i.e. thick polythene sheeting) on the ground to keep moisture in the ground. It also stops the air

under the floor from getting damp. Look for leaks in wall and roof claddings and flashings. Also check for leaks in plumbing services, where moisture can penetrate walls or floors near showers and baths. Such leaks are often hidden and can go unnoticed for a long time. Non-invasive moisture content measurements carried out by a qualified and experienced building surveyor is often the easiest way of finding hidden leaks. If your house has been recently built or renovated, it is quite possible there is still a bit of moisture in some of the construction materials, which need to dry out. This may take a few months. Extra heating and ventilation will assist with this. Avoid drying your clothes inside. It is better to dry them outside in the sun and wind. When the weather doesn’t allow this, use an externally vented clothes dryer. Use lids on pots when cooking to reduce moisture release and to conserve energy. Avoid using unflued gas heaters as they release large amounts of moisture and toxic combustion gases into your house, which can also be a fire hazard. If you are using a

gas heater or LPG portable heater without a vent or flue to the outside, always keep at least one window open to allow fresh air to enter the room. Never use unflued gas heaters in bedrooms. Keep furniture away from external walls. Leave a gap of 10cm or more behind large objects like furniture to avoid mould growing behind them in winter. Regularly check for signs of mould in your home, including hidden areas like wardrobes, under carpets and behind curtains and furniture. Remove mould by spraying with white vinegar, let it set, then wipe with a clean cloth, soap and water. Throw away the cloth afterwards.

LANDSCAPING IS MORE THAN A GARDEN

A dislike of gardening need not stand in the way of having an interesting outdoors to your home.

W

hether it is lawn right to the fence, or areas of concrete or paving, a landscape plan can turn stark spaces into ones

of curiosity. Fencing, shade houses, awnings and pergolas will provide shelter from the wind and sun. Enhance these exterior spaces with some decorative features. Fountains, ponds and waterfalls add tranquillity, while seating built on the top of planter boxes provides extra seats for guests when entertaining. The planters can be filled with shingle, a plant or two, rocks, a pot or a sculpture. Larger pieces, such as corrugated iron animals, can be strategically placed to create focal points. Even driftwood of differing shapes and sizes can add interest as will large boulders, an old bicycle or scrap metal, which is also commercially available as art forms. Fences need not be boring. Decorate these with carvings, artwork such as corrugated iron art prints, wrought iron wall art, mirrors, sculptures, or pottery art

to express your personality and provide a talking point. The children might even produce artwork on wood that can be hung on the fence. Rustic features may be added in the form of old window frames built into fences that allow a view beyond or trellis erected to filter the breeze. Even an old gate can create a break in a large space, while decorative iron fencing provides a rust-coloured contrast to whites and greys. Breaking up larger areas into walkways or seating nooks with fencing, gates and archways can take away the austerity.

On decks or in secluded entertainment areas, add life to a space with brightly painted furniture or the outdoor setting with bright cushions and pots. Alternatively, bring in a natural wood look with chunky outdoor or driftwood furniture. Whether you let your imagination and creative juices go wild, enlist the services of a professional landscaper, or purchase one of the many commercially available products, your exterior can reflect your interests and personality, making it a place to enjoy.

Keep your gutters clean with your feet firmly on the ground We have many jobs to do around this time of year. Preparing the home for the advances of the inclement weather is important to make sure you are safe, warm and secure when the onset of winter really hits. It is also important to ensure that your home does not suffer when the ravages of wind, snow, hail and rain are at their peak.

O

ne of the most important jobs to carry out is to make sure your spouting is cleared of any debris, plant life or even animals nesting in the warmth of the debris that has accumulated. The consequences of spouting blockages can be costly. Rodents or birdlife can cause accelerated deterioration as well as gain entry into your home through the gap in the spouting and debris can actually see water damage your home – with water not being able to exit through downpipes, but instead seeping into the interior cavity of your home through the eaves and ceiling space. However, the task of clearing out the gutters and spouting is often a laborious and at times dangerous task. The necessity to climb up to the height of the roof, perilously balancing on a ladder while you stretch and lean to try to clear away the muck, is enough to break any OSH worker into perspiration.

In fact, did you know that many of the falls recorded outdoors around the home are caused while using a ladder. So how can you ensure your spouting is clear while keeping your feet firmly

STOP LEAVES birds, snow, hail & vermin from blocking up your spouting

on the ground? Gumleaf gutter guard installs on to your spouting, providing a permanent barrier to protect from the entry of birds, rats or mice to your ceiling space or nesting in your spouting, and also stops leaf buildup in your guttering or spouting. The strength of the colorbond® steel protects from snow and hail damage, and acts as a leaf screen. Gumleaf ’s favourable testing results, its performance and looks, combined with its unique design means this system looks great, but most importantly, does the job it’s meant to. The product comes with a 10-year warranty and requires minimal maintenance – just a flushing of silt every three to five years, which they are able to do on your behalf with no removal of the product. What is even better is that Gumleaf will clean your gutters, valleys and downpipes before installation of the product, so that it will work at optimum performance. Gumleaf can be installed to most existing spouting and roofs, and it comes in a variety of colours to match your roofing or spouting. It is also a deal for water tanks. Harvesting water for drinking or using around the home is also covered with Gumleaf. It has just introduced an exciting new product, the stainless steel micro mesh gutter guard which is ideal for high quality water harvesting for drinking water. This product, which has 0.1mm holes, was developed in Seattle for their conditions and can handle 120mm of rain per hour. So if you want to ensure your home keeps you safe and dry this winter without the arrival of unexpected guests, or you want to look at water harvesting options, then call Gumleaf today on 0800 GUM LEAF (0800 486 532).

The design of your new home

When planning to build a brand-new home, it is often difficult to select a design or a building company from the many competitors in the new home market. Buyers can be bewildered by the range of styles and materials available to them and the various cost and payment options.

B

has already been built, buyers can sometimes make minor changes to the plan and choose the standard, style and colour of some fittings. Standard plans Most building companies offer a selection of standard plans for buyers to choose from. These plans can be modified to snit the site as well as individual budgets and lifestyle requirements. Usually, the house is then built by fixed term contract on the buyer’s own section. Design and build service Some builders and building companies create a set of plans incorporating your design ideas, while ensuring the design will suit the section and comply with local building regulations or covenants. Once the design is confirmed, it is individually priced and then built on the customer’s own land. Architecturally designed These homes are one-off designs and unique to the customer’s own requirements or “brief ”. This is always the most expensive new home option, but is chosen because the architect may

be renowned for a particular style, your design preference is unusual, or the property requires some special design or engineering expertise because of terrain, location or materials. If a style or specific construction method appeals to you, try to visit a similar property or show home to ensure it will suit your intended budget and location. Appraising various show homes allows you to make fair comparisons and visualise design ideas both practically and aesthetically. If the company designing your new home is not also contracted to build it, you will need to engage a reputable builder. Aim to get three different quotes and ask to see examples of each builder’s work. You may choose a “labour only contract”, which means the owner

is responsible for all project management including permits, inspections, payments, subcontracting and ordering materials. The alternative is a fixed price contract that includes all subcontracting by the builder. Whatever contractual arrangement you make, have your solicitor oversee all arrangements and ensure completion clauses and guarantees are included.

uilding a home is a very creative experience and one which should provide a highly personal and distinctive living environment, but the key to achieving it is research! Look at lots of homes before you make any decision. Style, size, cost, finish, fittings, location, packages, design services, guarantees and reputation are factors to be taken into account. Personal preference of style and your budget will be the primary considerations and may lead you to a particular architect or a building company. Some companies are known for specialising in a particular construction material or design concept, while others are more eclectic in their approach and build almost anything. There are four main options available to those planning on a brand-new home: House and land packages These are relatively uncomplicated, but may restrict buyers to certain locations where sections are available and may also limit the style of the home.

A PERFECT FIT! A purpose-designed plan to suit your lifestyle - for LESS than a standard plan! A FREE LUXURY WEEKEND FOR TWO IN FIJI with every Onyx Home!

By Richard Freeman ~ Director Onyx Homes Ltd Offer until June 20th, 2015. *Travel date conditions apply.

• Don’t believe everything you hear in the media - some building companies trying to margin enhance, making ridiculous statements about huge building price increases. • If you want genuine best pricing and top quality give Onyx Homes a call. You are guaranteed to talk to LOCAL industry professionals with years of experience rather than a sales person trained over night drafted into the industry with limited knowledge and zero idea on building costs working off a pre prepared song sheet. A sad but true statement in many cases. • Honesty, integrity, experience and common sense always outweighs “smoke and mirrors” and unfortunately common sense is not that common in many cases. Building commodity prices ARE stable, and I will personally guarantee that.

The management team of Onyx Homes are quite simply some of the best and most experienced people in the industry. It’s through this experience that Onyx Homes wants to bring to their customers a better standard of home that is often less than the standard-planbuilt homes of their competitors. Onyx believe that everyone is unique, so why settle for a standard-plan-home when you can have a purpose-designed plan to suit exactly your lifestyle and for less than a standard plan? A perfect fit! This is testament to our customers who have been amazed at the savings with Onyx, but also hadn’t realised their budget would allow for a such quality spec and design.

Carry out research on building options and potential house designs that will suit the building site, taking account of available building space, sun and wind direction.

[EDITION DATE] Cylinder wrap is a simple and affordable quick fix that can slash your power bill by up to $140 a year.

HOT HOUSE saving tips

A

ccounting for almost a third of our entire power bill, hot water is commonly powered by electric storage cylinders. Many older homes’ hot water cylinders - installed before 2002 - will most likely not be insulated, which makes it harder for your cylinder to heat up and retain the heat it generates. Cylinder wrap is a simple and affordable quick fix that can slash your power bill by up to $140 a year. Wraps cost from around $60 and pipe insulation is about $5 a metre from all good hardware stores. Another great cash-saving tip is reducing

water waste. Check the temperature of your hot water tap. If it’s more than 55 degrees, it’s unsafe and you could be using more energy than you need to. By enlisting the services of an electrician or plumber to adjust your thermostat, you could well end up saving more in the long run. Around 80 per cent of all hot water used in a typical Kiwi household is for showering and/ or bathing, yet many showers use a lot more water than they need to. Test your shower by seeing if the shower fills a 10-litre bucket in a minute or less. Save a whole litre of water by swapping to an efficient showerhead.
