Promotion for team

Honours for work in Maori culture and ballet BY TOM DOUDNEY

AIMING HIGH: Jessica Taylor puts up a shot for the Lincoln University B netball team during their 45-40 win over Saints. The result means the team has been promoted to the premier division. •Story, page 14.

A champion of Maori language and culture in education and a mentor to young ballet dancers were among those to receive Queen’s Birthday honours. Greenpark resident Denise Sheat has been made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to Maori and education, while Rolleston resident Ann Judson has been made a member of the order for her services to ballet. Mrs Denise Sheat has contributed to a number of organisations as an adviser and teacher of te reo and tikanga Māori, especially in the education sector. She said she was very pleased with the honour. “I have just worked towards a bicultural New Zealand and I’m

lucky I was born bicultural,” Mrs Sheat said. “I am a mixture of pakeha and Maori and I have worked with wonderful people – marvellous Maori people who have taught me a lot, people from Taumutu marae to which I belong, and some wonderful pakeha who have worked in Maori education as well.” Mrs Sheat became a resource teacher of Māori in 1986 and was an adviser for schools throughout Canterbury and the West Coast. She lectured in Māori Education at the Christchurch College of Education from 1994 to 2004 and, in 2008, helped develop the Charter of Understanding between Taumutu marae and Lincoln University. She has since been the Taumutu representative and adviser to Lincoln University’s Focus Group Māori. •Turn to page 3

Forty-eight staff at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre successfully completed a swim of the distance from Christchurch to Auckland to raise funds for the Cancer Society. The Speedo Challenge event ran for 90 days, beginning on February 2 and finishing on May 2. The Aquatic Centre team decided to swim 1068km, the same distance as from Lyttleton Harbour to Manukau Harbour, where the Speedo head office is located. They completed the challenge in 81 days and raised $971.70 for the Cancer Society. Aquatic Centre staff including lifeguards, receptionists and swim instructors participated in the challenge and swam a total of 45,326 lengths of their indoor pools. Speedo Challenge organiser and customer service supervisor Angela Leatherby said the event served several purposes. “It has increased staff moral and teamwork, encouraged staff to start swimming again and in some cases get back in the water after years of not swimming and it has raised money for a very worthwhile cause,” she said. Speedo representative Scott Reid awarded prizes on the last day of the challenge, which saw staff members completing some leisurely laps before the prizegiving. The overall winner was Inge Martens, swimming 233.5km which was also the most lengths

Mrs Sheat is a member of Ngāi Tahu Papatipu Rununga Education Committee and Kaumatua of Ellesmere College. Mrs Judson taught at a number of ballet schools, primarily at the Southern Ballet School in Christchurch from the 1970s until 2002. She was director of the National Ballet School in Christchurch and founded the National Ballet School full time tertiary course in Christchurch in 1993. She said she was thrilled to get the honour and that seeing her students succeed had been the greatest joy of her life. “Ballet has been a lifelong passion but I am absolutely delighted to have helped young people along the way – that’s my job.”

More than $176,000 may be allocated by Environment Canterbury and private land owners to enhance biodiversity in two inland waterways – the Waikirikiri Stream and the Glendowns Wetlands project. ECan is proposing to spend $73,950 from its Immediate Steps programme funding to match $67,450 from a landowner and create a protected corridor running the length of the Waikirikiri Stream. Another $14,390 from Immediate Steps coupled with $20,325 from a landowner would help with fencing and tree planning at the Glendowns property in the Hororata River catchment. The Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee will vote on whether to allocate the Immediate Steps funding at its meeting today.

Mike Gardner

OUR PEOPLE

Never a dull moment in life Former English ship captain and Rolleston resident Mike Gardner travelled the seas for 12 years before settling in New Zealand. He spoke to Tom Doudney about being tipped out of a lifeboat in 5m swells, going to Beatles concerts before they were famous and what Mother Teresa taught him How long were you at sea for? Can you tell me a bit about your maritime background? I was at sea for 12 years from apprentice to my captain’s ticket. Then as soon as I got my captain’s ticket, my wife Sally and I emigrated out here [from the United Kingdom] in 1974. What did you do at sea? What sort of boats were you on? I was on the Cunard-Brocklebank cargo ships going from England to the Mediterranean, all the Red Sea ports and out to India, Pakistan, and back to America. So we had seven-month trips and three weeks off. How long were you captain for? I was only captain for a couple of short coastal voyages around the UK and then we emigrated out to New Zealand. The last ship I was on was one called the Atlantic Conveyor which was a very new

ship in those days and a couple of years after I got off it, it went out as supply ship to the Falklands War. The Argentinians sank it and a few of the crew were killed. So there would have been a very real chance that you would have been on that if you hadn’t moved to New Zealand? Yeah, it could have been a possibility – but you have got to win sometimes in life, haven’t you? We came out to New Zealand and they wanted someone with roll on, roll off experience and that is exactly what the Atlantic Conveyor was – cargo roll in and out through the back door. So I got the job and ended up running the sea cargo terminal at Lyttelton. For those years you spent at sea did you have any harrowing experiences such as big storms or anything like that? I went through a couple of monsoons in the Indian Ocean,

RELAXED: Former sea captain Mike Gardner lives the quiet life in his Rolleston home, but in days gone by he travelled the world’s oceans on-board cargo ships. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN which is quite hairy when your whole ship turns around in about 30 seconds and you heel right over and you wonder if you are going to come back upright again. Yeah, there were a couple of things like

that which aren’t too easy to get over but you do. Another time I was on a tanker and a sister ship was close by. She needed a piece of machinery so we went over there in the lifeboat

with this big lump of machinery. The engineer who was looking after the motor on the lifeboat decided to switch it off and we went broadside to the waves and turned over, so we capsized in the middle of 5m waves which wasn’t too pleasant. Wow, I suppose you must have had a life jacket on? Yeah but my wife was on board at the time and she wasn’t too pleased at the sight. So I guess the big piece of equipment would have been lost? Yeah, the lifeboat and the lump of machinery was lost. I think one of my best memories at sea was when – we used to go to Kolkata every trip in India and we used to have a swear box in the officers’ bar which was pretty full by the time we got there. One of the officers used to take it up to Mother Teresa’s hospice in Kolkata and I got the job one time and went up there and met her and I spent quite a bit of time up there. It was quite amazing the work they did with nothing. She taught me quite a few things and one of the things she taught me was that we are all here to do something but it doesn’t matter if it is just small, so long as you do something small every day of the year it will be huge. I have always tried to live by that.

at sea . . . or on land

How much time did you spend up there? We spent about six weeks in Kolkata and I used to go there every other day and help in the kitchens ladling all the midday meal out to the thousands of starving people that used to come to the hospice for a meal. It was quite humbling to look out the door when you started and look out the window when you finished and there was still a queue about half a mile long of people who weren’t going to get fed. What was Mother Teresa like? Did she appear as saintly as her image? She was a very humble woman. It was a great shame that she passed away on the same day as Princess Diana, so Princess Diana got all the news media and it was a while after before Mother Teresa was acknowledged. I saw her ‘cell’

as they called it and it was just a very small metal bed with one little cupboard and a bible and two sets of clothes and that was it. Where in the United Kingdom did you grow up? I grew up in Liverpool and I used to go to the Cavern Club at lunch times and see the Beatles playing in their shorts and Gerry and the Pacemakers and all that sort of stuff. It was all that sort of era. Oh, you saw the Beatles? Yeah, it used to cost three pence to get in there and three pence for a bottle of Coke and we used to do that instead of having lunch at school. This was before they were famous, of course. Oh yeah, this was before they went across to Europe or went to the [United] States or anywhere. They were just learning then. What lead you to move to New Zealand? I came out for two trips on the ship, with my wife, and one trip we were on this tanker and she kept on blowing up and we had over a week in Lyttelton for repairs, so an agent lent me his car and said to go for a drive up around the crater rim. So we did that and got to a little place called Governors Bay and they had one pub and one dairy. We had a beer at the pub and my wife had an ice

kids at the supermarket who ask me about the missing legs. It used to p*** me off to start with but now I take it as a bit of a laugh. They ask me how it happened, so I tell them all about the ‘shark attack’ and that keeps them occupied for a while. How hard was it to take each amputation? Well, the first one wasn’t too bad actually because with one good leg, you can very soon get used to getting around and I got around my 4ha in Governors Bay with my animals no problem at all. When I lost the second one, like a mathematician I calculated that the sheep had four legs and I had none so I wasn’t DOOMED VESSEL: Gardner briefly captained the Atlantic Conveyor, going to catch them anymore.

Captain Underpants author educates and entertains Rolleston School pupils HAPPY: Children rehearsing for a musical based on positivity organised by Kids Life Academy.

Kids’ play to portray all things positive A group of 23 children from the Rolleston area have been putting their happy faces on as they practise a play that’s all about positivity. The production, a musical organised and written by Kids Life Academy director Amanda Staniford, will include a number of songs emphasising traits such as honesty, being focused and sporting a bright smile. The children, aged between four and 13, have been rehearsing since February. They will deliver two performances at the Lincoln Event Centre on June 28.

The production is being run as a non-profit project designed to introduce young people to their full potential, boost their confidence and teach them that their thoughts are the most powerful influence in their lives. A team of committed parents have been helping out in a variety of roles. Some local sponsorship has been secured for the project but more was being sought. Any surplus above the costs of running the event would be used to offer a number of Kids Life Academy scholarships to local children.

These scholarships would enable selected children to attend the academy and develop their skills further. Ms Staniford said for several of the children, this production would be their first stage performance. “Already children are building new relationships and establishing friendships,” she said. Tickets to the event are $15 for adults, $10 for children over five, free for children under five and family deals available for groups. The are available by emailing brainwaves@xtra.co.nz or phone 022 125 9645.

CAPTIVATED: Year 5 and 6 Rolleston School pupils read books from the Captain Underpants series written by Dave Pilkey. The pupils recently met Mr Pilkey at Shirley Boys’ High School in Christchurch, where the American author was giving writing tips, reading from his new novel which will be released in October, drawing character and giving away prizes. He told pupils that the books started when he drew comics in class as a child. The characters in those comis later featured in his books. Rolleston was one of several schools which sent pupils to the event.

Soldiers of Selwyn Heavy casualties a result of Celebrating those who died in World War 1 With SelWyn librarieS www.selwynlibrary.co.nz

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. •Private Thomas Leslie Gabbatis Thomas Leslie Gabbatis was born at Ladbrooks on December 15, 1894, to Arthur and Annie Gabbatis. Before enlisting on February 9, 1916, he was working as a farm hand at Ladbrooks. He had previous military experience with K Company of the 1st Canterbury Regiment, Coast Defence detachment. Gabbatis was assigned to C squad 13th Reinforcements and embarked for Devonport on May 29. During 17-day stay at Sling Camp he was posted to 1st Battalion Otago Infantry on July 30, heading overseas two weeks later. On May 5, 1917, he was detached to the 2nd Brigade Headquarters Demonstration Platoon, before rejoining his company about six weeks later, just a few days before the battle for Messines. Gabbatis suffered gunshot wounds to his back on June 7, the first day of the battle, and was sent to the second casualty clearing station. It was here, on June 10, 1917, that he died of his wounds, aged 22. He is buried in the Bailleul

Communal Cemetery Extension and remembered on the Prebbleton War Memorial. •Private William Scoltock William Scoltock was born at Oldham, Lancashire, on January 25, 1895, to Charles and Alice Scoltock. He came to New Zealand with his parents in 1911 and his father leased land at Greenpark. Before enlisting on July 26, 1916, he was working as a ploughman at Greenpark. Scoltock was assigned to the 19 Reinforcements of the Canterbury Infantry Regiment and embarked for England on November 15, 1916. He was sent to the 4th Reserve Brigade at Codford on March 30, 1917, and became a member of the champion football team of the 4th Brigade. On April 2, he was posted to the 3rd Battalion Canterbury Regiment, 13th Company at Codford. Scoltock left for France on May 28 but was evacuated to hospital from the field on August 15 with diarrhoea. He was discharged and re-joined his unit on August 20. He was gassed in September, and had only been back in the trenches about a week when he was killed in action with the 3rd Battalion on October 4, 1917, aged 22. Scoltock’s body was not found or recognised and his name is on the

Tyne Cot Memorial to the Missing, Ypres, as well as the Greenpark War Memorial. •Private Frederick Leonard Simpson Frederick Leonard Simpson was born at Lincoln on April 22, 1892, to Frederick and Emma Jane Simpson. Before enlisting, on September 20, 1916, he was working at Morven, near Waimate. He had previous military experience having served with the 2nd South Canterbury Regiment. His medical examination noted “very poor teeth” and added “should all come out.” It is not clear if they did but he was passed as fit to serve. Simpson was assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade Reinforcements, G Company, and embarked for Devonport on January 19, 1917. On April 24, he was posted to the 3rd Battalion Auckland Regiment, leaving for France on May 28. He was killed in action on October 4, 1917, aged 25. Simpson’s body was not found or recognised later so his name is on the Tyne Cot Memorial to the Missing, Ypres, Belgium, as well as the Lincoln Roll of Honour. •Private John Murray Eaglesome John Murray was born at Prebbleton on October 5, 1891, to William Murray and Ellen Eaglesome. He married Grace May Woodfield at Rangiora on June 29, 1916, a month after he had enlisted. They had one daughter, Joy Salisbury, born on December 29, 1916, by which time he had left for war. Murray worked as a traction

engine driver before enlisting on May 30, 1916. He reported that he had had pneumonia and inflammation of the bowel before enlisting. The medical report noted slight varicose veins but he was considered fit enough for the front. Murray was assigned to the 17th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company, and embarked for Devonport on September 23. He left for France with the Reserve Group on December 9 and joined the 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on January 7, 1917. The crowded conditions often triggered disease and Murray was sent to hospital with scabies on March 9, returning to his unit on March 17. He was killed in action during the disastrous Passchendaele battle on October 12, 1917, aged 26. Murray is buried in the Tyne Cot Cemetery and remembered on the Prebbleton and Hororata war memorials. •Private James Finlay James Finlay was born at Courtenay on February 3, 1886, to William and Marjory Finlay. Before enlisting, on May 30, 1916, he was farming at Courtenay. Finlay was assigned to the 17th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company and embarked for Devonport on September 23, 1916. He left for France on December 9, before joining the 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on January 7, 1917. Like many in the days before general inoculation he fell ill with what we would consider a childhood disease. He was sent to No 7 General Hospital at St Omer on February 23 with mumps and finally discharged on March 15.

Finlay was given five days of Field Punishment No 2 on April 25 for being absent from parade. This was not the first time as he had overstayed leave in December, 1916, while at Trentham and had been docked seven days pay. He was missing after the battle on June 7 although it was not cabled to headquarters or his family. Rightly, it seems, for he was admitted to No 20 General Hospital at Camiers, just north of Etaples, with a gunshot wound to his face and hand. Finlay was discharged on June 24 but was admitted again after only four days with scabies. He finally re-joined the Battalion in the field on July 20. On September 15, he was detached to the transport unit, but re-joined the 2nd Battalion a few weeks later. Finlay was killed in action on October 12, 1917, aged 30, during the first Passchendaele action. This battle in terms of lives lost on a single day, was the greatest disaster in New Zealand’s history. The death toll was 45 officers and 800 men killed with more than 2700 wounded, all within the space of a few hours. Finlay was buried near where he fell on Bellevue Spur but his grave was not found or his body identified so his name is on the Tyne Cot Memorial to the Missing, as well as the Malvern County War Memorial. •Private Charles Glennie Charles Glennie was born in Christchurch on September 25, 1881, to Charles and Helen Glennie. He worked for several years as a timber merchant.

Passchendaele disaster At the time of enlisting, February 6, 1917, he was working for Rantin Bros as a carter. Glennie was assigned to the 25th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Regiment, C Company, and embarked for Devonport on April 26, 1917. He left for France on September 5, joining 1st Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on September 16, barely a month before the disastrous action at Passchendaele on October 12. He was declared missing and a court of inquiry on April 13, 1918, decided he had been killed in action that day, aged 35. Glennie’s body was not found or identified and his name is on the Tyne Cot Memorial to the Missing, Panel 2, as well as the Tai Tapu War Memorial. •Private Arthur Gower Arthur Gower was born at Battle, Sussex, on January 18, 1891, to Henry and Jane Gower. In 1911, he was working as a nursery gardener in Plumpton and appears to have come to New Zealand in 1913. Prior to enlisting, on June 27, 1916, he was working as a farm labourer at Bangor. Gower was assigned to the 19th Reinforcements, Specialist Machine-Gun Section, and embarked for Devonport on November 15. He left for France on June 5 and marched into camp at Camiers a day later. It was only four days later that he marched out to the New Zealand Division, assigned to No 1 Machine Gun Corps. On June 25, he sprained his left ankle and was out of action until early July. A few days after re-joining his unit, he suffered

a recurrence of the same ankle problem. After time at a rest camp he rejoined his unit on August 13. Gower was killed in action on October 12, 1917, aged 26, during the disastrous and brief first Battle of Passchendaele. His body was not found or identified and his name is on the Tyne Cot Memorial to the Missing. He is also remembered on the Malvern County War Memorial and in England on the Battle War Memorial. •Private Alexander Errol Gunn Alexander Errol Gunn was born at Courtenay on December 22, 1889, to Alexander and Harriet Gunn. He was a keen sportsman and a prominent member of the Malvern Cricket Club. Gunn was working for his father at Racecourse Hill, before enlisting on October 6, 1916. He was assigned to the 22nd Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Regiment, and was promoted to Lance Corporal on February 10, 1917, while in camp at Trentham. He embarked for England on February 16. As was usual, on arrival he reverted to the rank of private. Gunn left for France on June 24 and joined 13 Company, 1st Battalion, Canterbury Regiment in the field on June 19. He was wounded in action on October 12, during the disastrous action at Passchendaele, and died the same day of his wounds, aged 27. Gunn is buried in the Tyne Cot Cemetery, and remembered on the Malvern County and Sheffield war memorials.

•Private Stanley George Harding Stanley George Harding was born on October 26, 1890, at Warrington, Lancashire, to George and Ann Harding. Before enlisting, on July 24, 1916, he worked for some time in Dunsandel as a carpenter. Harding was assigned to the Canterbury Infantry Regiment, 19th Reinforcements and embarked for England on November 15. During the voyage he had four days in hospital with influenza. He left for France on March 1, 1917, and on arrival, spent some time in a quarantine area to prevent the spread of diseases. Harding joined the 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on June 3. He was accidentally injured playing leapfrog on July 18, spraining his left ankle when he landed on uneven ground on a company physical exercise parade. He was admitted to a field ambulance for treatment and discharged on July 29. As it was a company exercise he was not blamed for his injury as might have been the case if he was skylarking. Harding was killed in action on October 12, 1917, aged 27 during the disastrous action at Passchendaele. A court of inquiry was held on November 15, 1917, to establish what had happened to him. One soldier told of how he saw Harding lying on the ground on the slope of Bellevue spur, that he was badly wounded in the lower abdomen and that was the last they saw of him. Harding’s body must have been found and identified because he is buried at Poelcappelle British Cemetery. He is also remembered on the Dunsandel War Memorial. •Rifleman Thomas Alexander

Harrison Thomas Alexander Harrison, known as Mick, was born at Totara Flats on June 6, 1894, to Joseph and Elizabeth Harrison. Before enlisting, on October 13, 1916, he was working as a shepherd at Glentunnel. He had previous military experience having served with the 2nd South Canterbury Infantry Regiment. Harrison was assigned to the 22nd Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Regiment, and embarked for England on February 16, 1917. On May 26, he left for France, joining the 1st Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on June 19, 1917. He fought with them throughout the Messines battles and was killed in action, October 12, 1917, aged 23, during the disastrous action at Passchendaele. Harrison’s body must have been found and identified later because he is buried in the Poelcapelle British Cemetery in Belgium. In New Zealand, he is remembered on the Malvern County and South Malvern war memorials and the South Malvern Roll of Honour. •Sergeant Colin John Alexander McLachlan Colin John Alexander McLachlan was born at Doyleston on November 15, 1890, to Archibald and Mary Cook McLachlan. On leaving school he became a teacher but gave that up in order to take up farming pursuits. For some years he was a member of the Canterbury Yeomanry Cavalry. As a member of the District High School Old Pupils’ Association he assisted at many of the successful

concerts given in aid of various war relief funds. Before enlisting he was a stationary engine driver at Doyleston. McLachlan enlisted on May 2, 1916, and was assigned to 19th Reinforcements, Otago Infantry Battalion, D Company. In Featherston Camp, he was promoted to Corporal and then to Quartermaster Sergeant. He embarked for England on November 15, 1916. During the three months after disembarking, he reverted to temporary Sergeant, before being promoted to Corporal while retaining the rank of temporary Sergeant. McLachlan joined the 14th Company, 1st Battalion, Otago Regiment in the field in France on May 21, 1917. Although he had relinquished his appointment as temporary sergeant this rank was restored in the field on July 30 due to the illness of his unit’s sergeant. He was detached to the Demonstration Platoon, part of the planning for the Ypres battles, on August 11. On September 29, he was promoted to full sergeant. McLachlan was killed in action on October 12, 1917, aged 26. He is buried in the Tyne Cot Cemetery, Ypres, and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Leeston plaque, the Doyleston War Memorial and the Southbridge School Roll of Honour. •Selwyn Libraries welcomes your feedback or any information you can provide regarding these soldiers.

Islington site perfect for combat training COMMAND: Lieutenant Adam Friend from Nelsons Charlie Company 2/4 RNZIR directs his platoon to move onto the Islington Freezing Works location during urban combat training. PHOTOS: JOHN G COSGROVE

A group of soldiers descended on Islington recently to take part in a military exercise in the freezing works. The soldiers travelled from Timaru and Nelson, as well as Christchurch to take part in the Alpha Company exercise. Instructors aim to make the training as realistic as they safely can. Officer Commanding Alpha Company 2/4 RNZIR Major Kendall Langston said the group had been training at the Urban Training Centre in Burnham, and everyone knew their way around. So when they were offered the deserted parts of the freezing works, they jumped at the chance, he said. “I purposely didn’t allow myself or any of the company HQ staff or platoon commanders to recce the

site beforehand because I sought to make the exercise as realistic as possible. If and when the Reserve Force soldiers are called on to assist on NZ Army operational deployments or exercises, they will surely come across situations like this.” The Islington site turned out to be a very challenging and realistic location for urban combat training as the Reserve Force soldiers soon found out. “Islington is a great place to train in and we were very privileged to get the opportunity to train here, as it has offered us a high level of realism to allow the soldiers to operate in a complex multi-room environment. “We spent the morning shaking out at the UTC and for me, it was a unique opportunity to have

under my command two fullstrength platoons.” With only small head lamps to guide them through the smokefilled entrances, they had to navigate meat processing rooms, opponents and doors that needed to opened with force. Outside, pyro explosions and machine gun fire caused nearby demolition workers to briefly stop their work to watch as the soldiers battled their way through the first of three buildings as darkness fell. “The soldiers all performed very well as they coped with often tight, confining and very dark locations. It was good to see them all respond well to the tasks undertaken and all displayed a new higher level of confidence to operate in an urban environment,” Major Langston said.

GET AWAY FROM THE COLD

with every Onyx Home!

A PERFECT FIT! A purpose-designed plan to suit your lifestyle - for LESS than a standard plan!

By Richard Freeman ~ Director Onyx Homes Ltd

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-plan-built 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.

• 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.

Landscapes feature in exhibition

13

A fascination with natural landscapes is the common thread between the two artists featured at Selwyn Gallery this month. The exhibition of work by landscapes artists Karen Smith and Cushla Heslop will open this Friday. Ms Smith lives in Methven and is a full time artist. She has been inspired by the forever changing light and moods of the ON DISPLAY: Works by artist Karen Smith. landscape, the brooding skies of a southerly and nor’west winds. She often ventures out in the high country to gather pictures and sketches to work with in her studio and her work is represented in many galleries and private collections, both in New Zealand and internationally. Ms Smith has won many awards and has held numerous solo and group exhibitions in New Zealand and recently overseas. It also hangs in her own Smith Gallery located in the heart of Methven. Ms Heslop grew up in Southbridge but now lives and works in Omihi, North Canterbury. Her interest in art has been lifelong and she originally trained as a photographer, going on to work at Lincoln University. She studied by correspondence school to gain NCEA levels 1, 2 and 3 in painting. This was followed by lessons in oil painting and colour mixing with Toni Duffy. Landscape is Ms Heslop’s key subject for painting and she has sold work at Hurunui Art Week, Canterbury Arts Exhibition Opportunity 3 and Darfield Art Week. All her works are made from photographs and sketches she makes on site, usually visiting the area multiple times. The Selwyn Gallery exhibition will be open until July 2.

SPIRIT: The Lincoln University B side celebrate their promotion.

Team ethic earns success

TAKING POSSESSION: Goal shoot Jessica Taylor looks for support inside the circle.

Lincoln University B netball coach Alana Dawson is singling out a strong team ethic as the reason her side will be now playing with their A side in the top grade. The team beat Saints 45-40 in a promotion-relegation match last week to move up and create a first for the university in having both sides together in Christchurch’s premier division. “There are no stars – ultimately our success is due to a

strong team culture and effort,” Ms Dawson said. “We have a mix of old and new faces and I think the diversity of this counts for a lot. The energy of the younger players complements the experience of our more seasoned players.” She said every player in the grade had skill and talent so there needed to be a point of difference for teams to succeed. “For us I think it is that there

is no hierarchy in our team and we work together. Everyone gets input and that input is valued. It is a safe environment for players to develop and not be afraid to try new things and take risks.” She felt the side’s success was due to the holistic approach the club took to the sport which focused on the physical, social, cognitive and emotional needs of players, coaches and administrators. “Being a university club we

are in a learning environment which everyone thrives off and the sport scholarships the university offers certainly support this.” Moving up to the top flight wouldn’t change the team’s philosophy. “We are excited about the challenge of playing at the top level and we are building all the time but our main goal is just to go out there and have fun and learn – that’s what club netball is all about.”

Three chances for hockey player to shine BY KYLE KNOWLES Lincoln University student Dom Newman has been named in three representative teams in the space of a week. He was first named in the Canterbury men’s hockey training squad which was followed by his name being read out for the future and junior Black Sticks squads. The 18-year-old said he was excited to be named in the teams and had to keep going back to the email to check it really was his name on the list. The three pieces of good news come off the back of Newman being on the New Zealand team which played at the Youth Olympics in China last year. He said it was amazing to be part of a tournament that resembled something like a full Olympics. “It’s sort of what you expect but to be in China it was ramped up even more and the atmosphere was crazy in a big stadium.” The former Christ’s College student is studying landscape architecture at university and has aspirations to reach the Olympics but first wants to make the full Canterbury squad. “At the moment my short-term goal is to make the Cavs NHL side then progressing to the Junior World Cup next year which I was just named in”. Longer term he said the Olym-

Newman started out playing rugNewman said it was really nice to have those two alongside by as a youngster but switched to him in the national teams, in hockey in primary school and has

stuck with it all through school to now having represented his country at age grade level. One of the perks of being named in these squads is travelling the world which Newman says is something he would not have been able to do if it was not for hockey. He said it was good to be able to go to all these places but it was a team effort and his family had invested a lot of time and money to help him make these sides and get him overseas. While he has been noticed at national level Newman has also had a strong start for his club side, Carlton Redcliffs. After five rounds he was second on the top goal scorers list with seven and the team was at the top of the ladder. The future Black Sticks will play in the invitational tournament in Breda, Netherlands, from July 1825 with pool play opponents in the form of Pakistan, India, Belgium, Germany, England and the Netherlands. Two Canterbury players were also named in the women’s future Black Sticks squad. Charlotte Symes and Phoebe Steele will suit up in the squad which play at the same tournament in the Netherlands. They will go up against England, Netherlands, Germany, India and China during round robin play.

Try out new activities at our

have a go day

A Sport and Recreation Have a Go Day is coming to Selwyn in June.

This free family friendly event is hosted by Selwyn District Council and local sport and recreation groups and is happening on Sunday, 21 June from 12-3pm at Lincoln Event Centre. The day allows you to try out try out 20 different sport and recreation activities offered by local clubs.

There are activities to suit all ages and abilities. Indoors you can have a go at: American football, badminton, basketball, body audit, hula hoops, older adult exercise classes, pump classes, spin class, table tennis, yoga and zumba. Outside you can try: archery, football (inflatable field), golf (inflatable targets), lawn bowls, pedalmania, skate boarding, softball and walking. For the littlies there will be mini gym, scouts and bouncy castles. The Selwyn Youth Council will be operating their pop up café, a live band will be playing, and there will be a sausage sizzle. To take part in the day, grab a Have a Go Day passport, complete at least five simple challenges, and get your passport stamped! Once you’ve completed the passport you can enter the main prize draw for a chance to win a $250 sport voucher, gifts from Selwyn Community Pharmacy, Tea House vouchers, or Sportsmed Lincoln massage vouchers. Ray White and Challenge in Lincoln are also supporting this event. Have a Go Day Passports are available from Thursday 4 June at Selwyn Libraries, the Lincoln Event Centre, Rolleston Community Centre or Council offices in Rolleston. Passports will also be available to collect at the Have a Go Day. The Have a Go Day will be on rain or shine, with many of the outside activities moving indoors if it is wet. We’re looking forward to seeing you and your family at the Have a Go Day to try some of the great activities on offer in Selwyn!

Learn a new language with Selwyn Libraries

Selwyn Community Board News

You can now learn a new language for free with Selwyn Libraries through Mango languages. Mango languages is an online language learning system that can teach you over 60 languages from around the world. Language options include Spanish, Russian, French, English, Mandarin and many more. It allows you to learn about the culture of your chosen language, vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar from its native speakers.

At the Board’s recent meeting presentations were given by St John regarding ‘Project Rolleston’ and ECAN staff regarding the LURP (Land Use Recovery Project).

“Mango is a great resource because it offers a range of languages and levels of intensity so you can tailor your learning experience to most suit your needs. Using the app on your smart phone or tablet makes it a really flexible and portable way to learn, and the range of languages means that for just about anywhere you chose to visit, you will be able to say “Hi!” in the local language,” says Selwyn Library’s Digital Services Librarian Christine Grant.

We are planning another update meeting regarding the Railway Station project for those who have indicated an interest in this project. Planning is underway to attend the Rolleston Reserve fireworks again later this year. The Board has recently allocated a number of grants to:

To access Mango Languages To access Mango from the Selwyn libraries website (www.selwynlibrary.co.nz) type ‘Mango’ in the search box on the home page. To log on to Mango you need your library card membership number and your library pin number (your pin is the last four numbers of your membership number unless you have changed this). This will take you to the Mango website and allow you to sign up for a free Mango profile. You will need to create a profile to track your progress. Select which language you would like to learn. Click the ‘Get Started’ button to begin a course. Mango is a self-paced learning system which allows you to learn at your own speed. You can save your progress at any point and pick up from where you left off next time you log in. Each lesson has multiple chapters with different conversational scenarios from real life situations like visiting a café or meeting people. There is a narrator to help you through each exercise. If you have a microphone on your computer, you can also record your voice and compare it with a native speaker’s. Once you’ve created a Mango language account through Selwyn Libraries you can also download the app from the Google Play or iTunes store by searching ‘mango languages’ and use this on your iPad or Android tablet. This allows you to learn anywhere, anytime. If you would like help to use this service, contact Selwyn Library staff on 03 347 2876 and they will be happy to help.

However, due to an error in the original notification and change in description, these designations must be re-notified. Three of the designations are considered to be a “roll over”, that is that they were existing designations as at 2000. A further 16 sites are new designations and one site (Darfield) is proposed with Spark New Zealand Ltd as a secondary requiring authority. All 20 sites are for the continued use of the existing facilities and activities associated with the proposed purpose. The proposed purpose for each site is to be ‘telecommunication, radiocommunication and ancillary purposes.’ Further information of the notice

Now the weather is cold many households are lighting fires inside the home to keep warm. Putting hot ashes straight from the fire into your wheelie bin or rubbish bag can easily start a fire and melt your bin. If you damage your bin you may be charged to have it replaced. Before putting ash into the rubbish bin, cool these for at least five days, stir ashes and/or put cold water on them. Ash should not be placed in organics bins. When you are selecting firewood please note that treated timber cannot be used under Environment Canterbury rules, as it releases harmful chemicals like arsenic into the air.

FOOD Roasted eye fillet of beef with rocket and shaved parmigiano reggiano This simple presentation of succulent eye fillet of beef is a winner. It is hard to overcook and holds well — in fact the longer it rests the better it is. It can be served within 10 minutes of cooking, served warm or cooked ahead and served at room temperature. Serves 8 Ingredients 1½ kgs Eye fillets of beef, silver skin trimmed 3 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil 4 handfuls Rocket leaves 1 serving Parmigiano cheese, for shaving Directions Heat the oven to 210 deg C fan bake. Heat a large frying pan or char grill until hot. Rub the beef with 1 tablespoon oil and grind over plenty of black pepper. Brown beef on all sides then transfer to a shallow roasting dish. Place in oven and roast beef for 18-20 minutes for medium-rare beef. Remove from oven, sprinkle with salt, cover loosely with foil and a clean tea towel and leave to rest. Rest for at least 20 minutes if you are serving at room temperature. Slice beef and place on a large platter. Scatter over rocket, shave over some parmigiano reggiano and drizzle with remaining olive oil.

Savoury tomato and olive mince on ciabatta Ingredients 400g Mince 2 Tbsp Oil 1 Onion, peeled and finely chopped 2 cloves Garlic, crushed 500g Tomato pasta sauce 250g Brown mushrooms, sliced 1 tsp Dried basil 1 tsp Dried oregano ¼ cup Fresh parsley, chopped 1 Tbsp Black olives, chopped 1 loaf Ciabatta bread

Self-crusting broccoli and pine nut tart Ingredients 1 serving Butter, to grease the dish 1 head Broccoli 3 Spring onions, sliced 1 cup Grated cheese, use tasty cheese 4 Eggs 1 cup Milk ½ cup Self raising flour 1 serving Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste 1 Tbsp Fresh oregano, chopped ⅓ cup Pine nuts Directions Heat oven to 200 deg C.

1 packet Rocket leaves, or salad greens Directions Heat oil in a large saucepan and brown the mince. Add onion, garlic and mushrooms and cook for a further 5 minutes. Add pasta sauce, basil and oregano. Cook over a low heat for 40 minutes stirring often. Stir through parsley and olives. Cut six, 2cm thick slices of ciabatta and grill, turning to brown both sides. Place toasted bread on four plates and spoon over mince mixture. Serve with salad greens. Grease a ceramic quiche dish with butter. Cut the broccoli into bite-sized florets and cook in boiling, salted water for 3 minutes, then drain well. Scatter broccoli over the base of the dish. Scatter over sliced spring onion and grated tasty cheese. Beat eggs in a bowl, add milk and flour, then whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper and stir in oregano.

Use winter to plan for summer While winter is the accepted time for pruning fruit trees and roses, or planting deciduous trees, it’s also a great opportunity to sit back, evaluate just how well your garden is working as a living space, and plan your summer garden renovations. Do you need a covered or sheltered area to get the children outside on otherwise wet and cold days, or somewhere to dry the washing? Or perhaps the sheltered area is too wet underfoot – laying pavers could be the answer here. Check out your existing paved areas for mosses that can make shady areas dangerously slippery, and spray with one of the commercial preparations now available. Perhaps an evergreen tree is keeping winter sun from recreational areas or the house – convert it to firewood and plant a deciduous tree. While you are working on your trees, prune healthy trees and clear the leaves. Trees growing too close to power lines may damage power supplies during winter storms – talk to your power board about making them safe. Shelter from cold winds is often an issue in the Canterbury area, especially when those southerlies hit. Check out the garden centres and do-it-yourself outlet for some of the newer style trellis, solid fencing or screens.

But as we enjoy the chilly days between the winter solstice and spring warmth, there will be many days when the garden is best enjoyed from the sanctuary of the house, perhaps fortified by a warming drink or soup. Garden colour is often scarce in July and August. Here, it’s best to check out what is brightening up local gardens and parks, and will thrive in your soil and climate, rather than rely on books and articles as local conditions affect flowering times. For best value, plant in large enough groups to make a splash of colour which can be admired from a safe distance, out of the weather. Bright yellows and oranges and pink flowers offer best value on dark winter days. Consider the deciduous plants with bright stems such as dogwoods, some rugosa roses, golden willows (not for small town sections – the roots cause problems with drains). Low growing coloured conifers or berrying shrubs can also brighten the winter garden. Reliable winter flowers include some begonias, stocks, yellow Paris daisy (euryops), jonquils, anemones, primula and ranunculus. Suitable trees include camellia – the red varieties show the least wind damage

COLOUR: Daisies and begonias can usually be relied upon to provide winter colour. – acacias, magnolia kowhai and manuka. Flowering times vary with varieties, so ask for advice at your local garden centre. If you have an extremely exposed site, take advantage of the wind and choose plants which enjoy the conditions. Flaxes, cordylines, euryops daisies, and native tussocks will all add elegance and movement without interfering with the view. Winter flowering succulents can add colour, or consider strategically placed brightly coloured pots.

gardening without guesswork Question:

Actually I have two questions. How can I get rid of aphids, especially on my swan plants, and, when is the best time to prune my maple tree?

Aphids on swan plants are not easy to get rid of if there are still caterpillars on the plants. Usually at this time of the year the caterpillars are not active or are too late to become butterflies as it is too cold for them to develop, so you can spray with an insecticide such as Mavrik or any contact spray. Alternatively you could use a more organic approach by adding a few tablespoons of liquid soap (or dish liquid) to lukewarm water. Pop this into a spray bottle and apply where the aphids are. Don’t forget to spray the underside of the leaves too! Maple trees are best pruned in the summer when they are in full leaf. At that time any cuts made will heal over quickly. If maples are pruned in the late winter they tend to bleed sap and the cuts are very slow to heal and often dieback (gradual dying off of the shoots) occurs even down to the main stem or trunk. for more information, check out our website: www.intelligro.co.nz or visit our facebook Thanks to martina for her question – page: www.facebook.com/igro.co.nz we hope you enjoy your prize pack

No ‘fire sale’

scenario predicted from lower milk payouts Lower dairying payouts will lead to a tightening of the proverbial belt around many Canterbury farm budgets, but not a rush to the mass selling of productive units, according to the head of a leading real estate agency in the region.

B

ayleys Canterbury director Bill Whalan said the full impact of the latest lowered Fonterra payout forecast would depend on how long prices remained depressed – but any talk of fire sale pricing was wide of the mark. “A vast majority of Canterbury dairy farmers are in a position to deal with this season’s low payout, and therefore a rush of distressed farm sales is not anticipated,” Mr Whalan said. “Looking ahead, a majority of banking and rural sector forecasters believe that dairy prices will begin to recover in the later part of 2015, and therefore payouts for the 2015/2016 season will lift from current levels.

“It is likely, however, that those farmers carrying higher levels of debt in the short term may look to reposition their business by selling off surplus land or parts of farms. Many dairy farmers will have to continue to exercise caution with on-farm budgets. “While the $4.50 per kilogram of milk solids payout is not a scenario Canterbury’s dairying sector would like to see for any sustained period, the anecdotal commentary coming through to our sales teams out in the region is that farmers are in a far stronger operating position in 2015 than they were in the last down period of the cycle some five years ago.” Mr Whalan said the disposal of surplus land holdings could provide an asset buffer to enable heavily mortgaged farmers to

navigate through the next year or so. “Land values have held firm, despite the downturn in commodity prices. This suggests that low interest rates and a reasonable longer term outlook for dairying are supporting demand for farmland, despite the difficulties of the current season,” he said. Rural land prices in the Canterbury region have surpassed their pre-global

financial crisis highs according to latest results reported by the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ). The REINZ sales data for the three months ending March 2015 shows the median sales price of rural land had reached $31,826 per hectare, surpassing the previous high of $31,126 per hectare registered in the opening quarter of 2009.

Some budget measures welcomed by

Federated Farmers Federated Farmers says it is disappointed there is no Budget surplus this year, but the best news for farmers from the Government is that it is on track for a surplus next year.

A

cting president Anders Crofoot says Federated Farmers welcomes a number of measures in the Budget, but the best thing to assist the rural economy is to control government spending enough to create an enduring surplus to enable debt repayment and to keep pressure off inflation, monetary policy and the exchange rate. “The Government is clearly trying to balance the need to responsibly manage its finances with the pressing and growing demands to do something about housing and child hardship.” There are other measures in the Budget Federated Farmers believes will help the rural sector. “It’s good to see $80 million go to the Callaghan Institute for R&D growth grants. We just hope that the pastoral industries will get a fair share of that investment,” Mr Crofoot says. Federated Farmers is also keen to see the fine print of the $25m proposal to support the new, privately led Regional Research Institutions. “The seafood industry Cawthron model of mixed private and Government funding is interesting. It’s also a step in the right direction to focus the science effort on the local conditions in any particular region, both to get a good fit with the environment, but also to boost local economies, which desperately need it.” Crown Irrigation Investment has been

allocated $100m. “Water storage is our main priority. It brings community and environmental benefits, as well as economic returns for agriculture.  In a drought year like this, the need for water storage becomes even more acute.” Biosecurity has received an extra $27m and there will be a new Passenger Border Clearance Levy, which in time will recover all the costs of passenger border clearance. “It’s always good to see the Government acknowledges the risk to our national economy by an exotic pest or disease arriving in the country through a breakdown in border control.  A passenger levy will reflect the threat this means of entry poses.” Federated Farmers says other positive measures are in grants for owners of Maori land to improve productivity, an increase in tuition funding for agriculture courses at tertiary institutions and a promise of more funding to extend ultra-fast broadband to 80 per cent of the population and a boost to funding for rural broadband and to fill mobile black spots. “We’ve also noted that there is $32m over four years to pay for more labour inspectors. That is a signal to our farmers that generally, they must improve their employment relationships.  This will represent hundreds of dollars worth of inspections and enforcement for every New Zealand farmer every year.”

Not all first aid certificates are created equal

F

irst aid courses must achieve prescribed New Zealand Qualification Authority standards to be certified, but not all training providers deliver the same course. Some courses range from teaching only the basic NZQA specified content, to providing detailed and comprehensive content designed to familiarise participants to a wide range of likely emergencies. NZQA and the Department of Labour have published a fact sheet 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. 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 w o r k p l a c e assessments and meet health and Raewyn Clegg safety obligations.

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 based on: • Unit standards 6400, 6401 (or 26552) and 6402 (or 26551), a minimum of 12 hours’ training and assessment • Unit standards 6401 (or 26551) and 6402 (or 26552), a minimum of eight hours’ training and assessment • For refresher training, where the learner’s certificate is no older than two years and three months from date of issue, a minimum of six hours’ training and assessment First aid training must cover the outcome of the NZQA first aid unit standard being assessed and any additional modules identified by the employer through the workplace risk assessment process as outlined in Department of Labour guidelines. Only first aid training providers accredited by NZQA can award the credits and issue a first aid certificate. NZQA conduct regular External Evaluative Reviews on all training providers. NZ Red Cross is proud to hold a double Highly Confident accreditation in both Educational Performance and Capability in Self-Assessment. This means that NZ Red

Cross is a Category One training provider. First aid refresher training Refresher training is required every two years to maintain the certificates. The requirement allows for a three-month grace

period, so the cut off period is two years and three months, which should allow sufficient time to enrol onto a suitable course. The refresher training ensures the certificate holder is current in first aid practice appropriate to their individual workplace requirements. If a certificate is not renewed for more than three months from the second anniversary date of issue, the certificate holder must complete full first aid training to maintain currency. For the purposes of workplace first aid emergency management, employers need to ensure that their first aid personnel maintain competency at all times. Visit www.redcross.org.nz.

Best practice in thinking?

T

he idea that some styles of thinking are more helpful for us than others is not new, but the challenge has always been deciding which thinking style we should cultivate. Neuro-Linguistic Psychology (NLP) is a branch of psychology which has approached this age-old conundrum from a new perspective, by focusing on successful individuals then examining the thinking styles that have produced their successful behaviour. In the late 1970s in the United States, the Vietnam War was over and the veterans were returning home. One of the biggest issues was dealing with the post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) many veterans were experiencing. The story goes that a group of

NLP researchers studied veterans who had successfully recovered (of their own accord) from PTSD and the researchers were able to identify the thinking style or cognitive processes which had resulted in the veterans’ recovery. These cognitive processes have been distilled and are taught all around the world to successfully resolve trauma. NLP has continued to study and codify the cognitive processes underpinning many successful behaviours.

MOTORING

Mercedes estate resists trend IN THE wake of solid global demand for sport utility vehicles, there’s been some consumer resistance towards the more traditional station wagon, especially in the New Zealand market. However, the brands which still market wagons are generally rewarded with consistent, if not buoyant sales. Personally, I like station wagons, I had a designated company car once which was a mid-size wagon and I found it very useful, so much so that it sold me on the concept of station wagons, but I also understand SUVs often offer just that little bit extra in terms of versatility. That aside, the latest wagon to come my way for evaluation was Mercedes-Benz’s C 250 estate. Regular readers will recall my sedan evaluation of much the same car in February, the estate offers much the same driving dynamics along with offering a practical load space. Incidentally, in true luxury car fashion the tailgate opens and closes electrically. And the estate doesn’t look a traditional wagon, it is neatly integrated, its design is almost coupelikee and it sits low at just 1.4m. Up front sits a four-cylinder, turbocharged, twin-camshaft, 155kW engine of 1991cc. Of course, the C-Class estate is offered with a choice of two diesel power plants or a lower output

SPECIFICATIONS

petrol engine (135kW). The high output petrol engine is no surprise to me. It’s a unit I’ve experienced several times before in Mercedes-Benz product, and it stands out for its solid performance and fuel efficiency. It is rated by Mercedes-Benz with a 350Nm rating along with a 6.2litre per 100km (46mpg) combined cycle fuel usage figure. During my time with the test car the trip computer was listing figures not that far distant at 8l/100km (25mpg) with 6l/100km (47mpg) available at a steady 100km/h cruise. Drive is through a sophisticated seven-speed automatic gearbox, the driveline is amazingly smooth with little chance of noticeable shifts. The ratios and engine management protocols encourage lazy engine behaviour, but there are drive modes which the driver can manipulate to force sporty driving dynamics. There is even a protocol management system in which the driver can program to suit his/her driving styles. I used the sport mode set-

Price: Mercedes-Benz C 250 estate, $99,370. Dimensions: Length,4702mm; width, 1810mm; height, 1457mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder longitudinal, rear-wheel-drive, 1991cc, 155kW, 350Nm, sevenspeed automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 6.6sec.

MERCEDES-BENZ C 250 ESTATE: Performance and practicality in one desirable package. ting mostly which encourages free-revving engine behaviour without providing optimum performance, a sport plus mode can be selected to do that. When given some throttle the force feed of fuel initiates quick acceleration, speed is ushered in effectively. For the record, the C 250 can make 100km/h from a standstill in 6.8sec. I had a Trade Me item to pick up at Diamond Harbour, so after picking that up I took the test car over the Gebbies Pass incline back to the flat land of the Canterbury Plains. In the tight and twisty stuff the C 250’s chassis works to create an entertaining handling balance along with strong directional accuracy and stability.

The suspension is fully independent front and rear, and with the surety provided by rear-wheeldrive the C-Class estate feels stable and competent in a corner. The spring and damper rates can be selected to provide a wide combination of ride choices, personally I found comfort mode a little bit too squishy, but in sport mode the ride quality is still acceptable. With the low ride height, gravitational movement isn’t extreme and the entire handling package is well matched to the power outputs. Accelerating between corners the C 250 lunges with considerable force, braking is strong through the powerful four-disc

system, while turn-in is decisive. On the long straights which characterise Canterbury’s roads it is quiet and comfortable, all occupants have strong support in the seats, and rear space is generous enough so that those who are seated there have comfort akin the luxury tag Mercedes-Benz has created. In C 250 estate lands at $89,900, the test car was carrying around $10k worth of extra equipment such as the agility suspension system, panoramic roof and Comand infotainment package. The C-Class estate is a vehicle which is hard to categorise and, I guess, Mercedes-Benz would want it to stand out with its individuality. It is a performance car, yet one which doesn’t tax the fossil fuel resources, it is also a fine handling sports machine and one which offers practicality and versatility. I can see why sales in Europe justify its existence, I hope it catches on here.

Public Notice of the Re-notification of Notices of Requirement for Designations by Chorus New Zealand Ltd and Spark New Zealand Ltd Partially Operative Selwyn District Plan First Schedule, Clause 5 of the Resource Management Act 1991 Selwyn District Council has received Notice of a Requirement for 20 designations from Chorus New Zealand Ltd (Chorus) and Spark New Zealand Ltd (Spark). These designations were previously notified (at the time as Telecom Designations) through the Proposed Selwyn District Plan process. However, due to an error in the original notification and change in description, these designations must be re-notified. Three of the designations are considered to be a “roll over”, that is that they were existing designations as at 2000. A further 16 sites are new designations and one site (Darfield) is proposed with Spark New Zealand Ltd as a secondary requiring authority. All 20 sites are for the continued use of the existing facilities and activities associated with the proposed purpose. The proposed purpose for each site is to be “telecommunication, radiocommunication and ancillary purposes”. A “Telecommunication Facility” and a “Radio Communication Facility” are defined in the District Plan as follows Telecommunication Facility: means any telecommunication line, telephone exchange, telephone booth, telephone cabinet or pay phone, or any other structure, facility or apparatus intended for the purpose of effecting telecommunication. Radio Communication Facility: means any transmitting or receiving devices such as aeri als, dishes, antenna, cables, lines, wires and associated equipment/apparatus, as well as support structures such as towers, masts and poles and ancillary buildings.

Times datE] Selwyn [Edition 2

Keep it simple Design your perfect home with an appreciation of the imperfect. Use and reuse the old, and learn the art of paring back so old and new can coexist comfortably.

Y

our home is your haven, a place to unwind, play with the kids, enjoy the company of friends and be inspired. Forget matching fabrics and untouchable antiques, and learn to enjoy perfection. This is a laidback approach to decorating that embraces family life and ensures that your house works for you, not the other way around. It can be difficult to hold onto our individuality when magazines, TV makeover shows and chain stores bombard us with advice on what to wear and how to decorate. But an interior lifted from the pages of a magazine will always have a slightly soulless quality. A home should be a true reflection of its inhabitants, their tastes and their way of life, and as long as you follow a few easy rules and get the bare bones of your interior in place, any amount of self-expression will hang together. Start off with some self-analysis: what works for you and how do you like to live? Do you like a laidback vibe or prefer a more ordered, formal feel? Are you drawn to light, fresh colours or are you happiest enveloped in richer, darker shades? This sort of questioning will really help you identify your own style. Think carefully about the realities of your lifestyle and decorate your house accordingly. The idea is that if you make practical

Of course, that doesn’t mean that we are suggesting you compromise on style, but embrace a style of decorating that can weather the bumps and scuffs of daily life while improving with age and growing in character.

We live in a material world, and it’s no secret that our fast-paced consumerism and disposable attitude to throw away trends is proving a huge drain on the planet. But there is a revolution brewing, and our grandparents’ habit of patching up and letting nothing go to waste has been adopted by forward-thinking designers. Far from being a passing fad, recycling, upcycling, retrofitting are here to stay, and rightly so. The need to save energy, preserve natural resources and protect the planet plays a vital role in the design world, and it’s important not to brand this stance as a style statement but to see it as a way of life. Recycling forces us to shun the easy option

of chain store shopping and helps us develop an individual sense of style. Secondhand furniture is inexpensive and ethically sound, and it’s often the old paintwork or patina that lends a piece its charm. Think outside the box and repurpose unwanted items into something useful. What’s really exciting is the new wave of creativity, inspired by greener living, paving the way for innovative ideas that are so subtle about using another person’s junk that the finished piece will show no signs of its secondhand nature. And there is also much credit to be had in celebrating the heritage and history of an item so that its past life and purpose remains an integral part of its new-found beauty.

Smart building materials

save pennies

Using building materials wisely in the design of your new home or existing home can improve temperature regulation, creating a more efficient and cost-effective home.

U

sing simple physics principles, thermal mass works by moving heat from warmer surfaces to cooler ones. When the sun penetrates a room, it is absorbed into the walls, floor and all other surfaces. Dense materials such as concrete, brick, stone, clay and tiles are high in thermal mass, absorbing and retaining the sun’s heat, which will be released when outside temperatures drop. When implemented correctly, using the right amount in the right place, with proper insulation and combined with passive solar design, thermal mass can play an important role in major reductions in energy use, in active heating and cooling systems all year round. In summer, thermal mass absorbs heat from the inside air, providing a cooling effect on a hot day as it does during the cooler months when the thermal mass will absorb the heat from within a room during the day and radiate the heat once the sun goes down. Individual properties of thermal mass materials are important factors to consider when choosing the most effective solutions

to heating and cooling for your home. Concrete containing stones, for example, is more thermally conductive than concretes with ash, perlite, fibre and other insulating aggregates. The level of heat materials can hold is dependent upon what they are made up of and their thickness. While some materials take longer to absorb heat, they hold it for longer. Materials must contain three key components in order to absorb, store and radiate heat: the material must be dense and heavy to absorb and store significant amounts of heat (lighter materials, such as wood, absorb less heat); the material has to be a reasonably good heat conductor; and the material should have a dark and/or textured surface, which helps it to absorb and re-radiate heat. Where the thermal mass materials are used in the home are anywhere that is exposed to direct sunlight and has the potential to absorb heat. Install materials near windows or other glazed areas on the north-facing aspect of the house. The most effective way to increase thermal mass in the home is with a well insulated concrete slab floor. Using it for the whole surface area of a space, or even

Source: Smarter Homes www.smarterhomes.org.nz

just a strip of polished or tiled concrete along a sunny spot can have a huge impact. Brick, concrete, concrete block and rammed earth can be used for internal or external walls if they catch the sun or are close to a radiant heat source. Walls can either be solid or an internal veneer. External thermal mass walls must be insulated on the external surface to prevent heat loss and exposed on the inside of the house (that is, without internal lining, but it can be plastered, painted or wallpapered). Some existing homes already have thermal mass, which isn’t currently being used to its

full potential. Any concrete slab in a northfacing room can absorb and store heat, just long as it’s uncovered and insulated. Therefore, ripping up flooring coverings such as carpet, vinyl, timber or cork, to expose the concrete underneath can help reduce your heating bills. Thermal mass can be added to existing homes during renovations by laying a concrete floor in a new extension, adding a brick or stone feature wall to the interior of the house which is exposed to direct sunlight and be well insulated, or by adding a conservatory with high thermal mass in the floor or walls.
