Positive outlook for Leeston bus service BY TOM DOUDNEY The chances of Leeston getting a bus service to Christchurch have been described as “positive” by Red Bus which is currently analysing responses to a residents’ survey. However, the cost of a return ticket could be as high as $24 – although Red Bus chief executive Paul McNoe downplayed that as a conservative estimate. The survey put out by the company said it hoped to be able to provide the service “from $20 to $24 return

or less” and asked residents if they would consider paying that amount. A return ticket on the Red Bus route between Darfield and Christchurch costs $16 for an adult in spite of the trip being about 50km, compared with only about 44km between Leeston and Christchurch. Red Bus has estimated that driving a car between Leeston and Christchurch costs between $50 and $60 per day, including insurance, registrations, depreciation, wear and tear. Mr McNoe said costs of running the service depended on a range of

factors including the type of vehicle and the services that were put on it. If a local driver could be found for the bus, as had been the case in Darfield, than the price would be reduced – possibly below $20. “The services are fully commercial, not subsidised by regional or local council, and need to be able to stand on their own two feet,” he said. In Christchurch, buses received a 50 per cent subsidy from Environment Canterbury but this was not the case for the Darfield service and the same would

probably apply for Leeston. While the survey responses still had to be fully analysed, it appeared there was a lot of interest from the community. District councillor Pat McEvedy who has long advocated for the bus service said the cost of a fare would be a concern if it remained high and residents were discouraged from using it. “Clearly if it’s more affordable for the passengers than it’s a more sustainable service for the company.” •Turn to page 3

Rolleston residents are in a flap over a bird which has been spotted walking the streets. The bird, believed to be a young seagull has sparked interest among residents with many taking to social media to express their concerns about the bird’s welfare. All attempts to catch the bird, which appears unable

to fly, have so far been unsuccessful, with residents claiming that it is just too fast. Shaun Whittle, a volunteer for the South Island Wildlife Hospital said: “The bird is most likely injured, perhaps with a broken wing. I have asked residents to contact me if they spot the bird again.” When asking about what may have injured the bird, Mr Whittle said: “It could have

perhaps been hit by a car, we have one seagull in at the moment that was shot with a shotgun but I doubt it was anything like that in that area.” The bird has so far been spotted on Tennyson St and opposite the Rolly Inn. One resident claimed that “all that walking around would make anyone thirsty”. If you spot the bird, phone Mr Whittle on 022 106 0170.

CHAMPIONS: Left to right – David Neal, James McConchie and Jack Drage, the ‘Peninsula Possum Pals’ stand victoriously in front of their bamboo rugby posts after winning the national final of the Young Farmers AgriKids competition in Taupo last Friday. The 12 and 13-year-old boys won the Tasman regional final in Kirwee in March, which gave them qualification for the national final. Jack and Jimmy are Tai Tapu School pupils while David attended the school before starting at Lincoln High School this year. The youngsters claimed the title after an intense day against some of New Zealand’s finest farmers. Finishing in the top seven teams after seven modules, meant they qualified for the race off; a series of challenges to decide the winning team. The deciding challenge was constructing bamboo rugby posts and successfully kicking a drop-goal over. Jimmy was handed that duty, and nailed it; winning the title for the Possum Pals.

crossing lighting planned BY JAIMIE KEAY

A review of lighting at pedestrian crossings is planned after Lincoln residents raised concerns about schoolchildren’s safety. A Lincoln resident, who did not wish to be named, said he felt lighting at both of the pedestrian crossings on Gerald St were inadequate. He said that it was difficult to see young children early in the morning, in particular throughout winter, and with many wearing dark clothing he was concerned that someone would end up getting hurt. “I didn’t want to stand by and not say anything and have someone get hurt. I think floodlights would be more appropriate for the early mornings to help us to see the kids.” District council transportation asset engineer Mark Chamberlain said it was an issue that had been raised before but with many schools in the district growing rapidly a review would take place. “It will take into account whether a greater number of people are using the crossings and how crossing use may have changed. Mr Chamberlain also said an upgrade of Gerald St was planned in the future, which could result in street lighting being reviewed and upgraded.

Purr-fect notes Injuries prompt call to make horse riding safer

IN CHARACTER: About 200 people turned out to see 23 children from the Rolleston area including Rae Shevlin, 8, dressed as The Cat in the Hat, sing in a musical performance which was all about positivity. The production, Rolly’s Rock Solid Kids, was organised and written by Kids Life Academy director Amanda Staniford. It included a number of songs emphasising traits such as honesty, being focused and sporting a bright smile. There were two performances with about 70 attending the first show and 120 at the second. Ms Staniford said it was likely to become an annual event. Sponsorship from A Electrical and Ray White Rolleston and money raised from the event means that two children will be able to attend Kids Life Academy on a scholarship for a a year. Application forms for these scholarships can be obtained by emailing Ms Staniford on brainwaves@ xtra.co.nz

BY TOM DOUDNEY A leading figure in the Canterbury equestrian scene says Selwyn urgently needs a designated horse riding area to get riders off increasingly busier and more dangerous roads. Christchurch Pony Club district commissioner Sharon Mehlhopt’s comments come after two women were seriously injured falling off horses within the last two weeks –although it is not clear that either incident was related to traffic movements. A women in her 30s was taken by ambulance to Christchurch Hospital’s emergency department with serious injuries at about 11.20am on Sunday. A St John spokesman said she had fallen from her horse on a private property off Two Chain Rd in Rolleston. On June 26, a woman in her 20s was flown to the emergency department by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter in a critical condition after falling from a horse in Dunsandel. She was found on the roadside. Ms Mehlhopt said there would inevitably be more incidents involving horse riders as traffic was increasing and many people did not take care when driving past horses.

“Somebody is going to get killed on the roads around here.” A suitably large area where riders could go on extended rides away from the roads was needed. She had raised the issue a number of times with the district council over the last three years but was disappointed to have seen no progress made. “There are so many sports fields going up around the district, which is great because there are a lot of kids playing sport, but there is nothing for equestrian at all.” District council manager open space and property Mark Rykers said he was aware of the issues and a number of initiatives aimed at providing more suitable areas for equestrian pursuits were being investigated. These included the possibility of developing a horse riding trail around the Pines wastewater treatment plan land in Rolleston, acquisition of land for a large scale park which could include horse riding activities near Rolleston and a potential horse riding trail in Waimakariri Regional Park. The district council would also be running a road safety campaign in spring to increase driver awareness of horse riders, cyclists and pedestrians.

Leeston bus service

•From page 1 Leeston Community Committee chairman Lloyd Clausen said a bus service would benefit the whole community, from young to old. “We’re always hopeful but we have tried [to get a service] on other occasions and nothing has come of it so it will be interesting to see what they come up with this time.” It is likely that the service would run daily morning and evening from Leeston directly into the city bus exchange.

OUR PEOPLE

Nancy Nightshade: Fashion

Tai Tapu resident Ange Wasely is a clothing designer by day and a burlesque performer known as Nancy Nightshade by night. She spoke to reporter Tom Doudney about mixing comedy and burlesque, her very public proposal to her fiancee and her brief role as an advocate for eastern suburbs’ residents after the September 2010 earthquake.

TRANSFORMTION: Ange Wasely, (centre), likes to mix burlesque with comedy when in character as ‘Nancy Nightshade’.

Tell me about this fashion show, Behind The Seams, which you staged last week? It showcased everything I have done for the last 15 years. It’s a mix of street wear and alternative stuff – Gothic and steampunk, mixed in with pin-up clothing and some costumes as well. And this is all from your own label. What’s it called again? PandamoniumNZ. Why do you spell it differently to how pandemonium is usually spelt? With a lot of my clothes, I don’t start with patterns, I start on a small piece and I almost lose myself in creating the outfit and when it is finished I sit back and have a look at what I have created. So ‘Pandamonium’ means I don’t have to stick to any of the rules. What were you performing when you were two? I started with ballet and like many burlesque performers, I am a ‘failed ballerina’ – a person that decided to not take ballet to the full extent and

deviated off into other performances. When did you start making clothes? Probably in primary school in Australia. I was born in New Zealand, we travelled to the United Kingdom and then settled in Australia for 20 years. Then I moved back here about 15 years ago and went to circus school – CircoArts at the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology. How old were you when you started Pandamonium? After I left circus school in 2001 I started sewing street wear and Gothic PVC items again and I used to co-run a boutique called Formation. I would have been in my late 20s. When did you get into the burlesque scene? That happened seven years ago. Somebody who ran the orientation for Otago University asked me if I knew of anyone doing burlesque in the South Island and I said ‘I can do that.’

ORGANIC HORTICULTURE COURSES

Instruction in organic horticulture is now well established at the Lincoln-based Organic Training College. The next year-long course, which begins on 17th August, will be the eighth intake for the college. Students need no prior qualifications or experience to commence Year One and can study full or parttime. Those who have some horticultural background can go straight into Year Two. An added appeal of the course is that all fees are under $500, and full time students are eligible to apply for a loan or allowance through Studylink.

Course Director Bill Martin says it works well to start the course year in the spring. “The organic horticulture course is all about growing so we want to start the course in spring when it is the right time to begin planting.” Year One students get plenty of hands on training in subjects such as sowing and planting organic crops, soil management

and composting. The Year Two students have the option of using land and facilities on the Biological Husbandry Unit (BHU) Farm to grow and sell their own certified produce – a semicommercial venture that gives students a real taste of organic horticulture as a business. The students grow vegetables under the guidance of a mentor and sell them at a weekly stall at Lincoln University. “The Year 2 programme gives the students experience in a commercial environment without any risk. It’s the icing on the cake for a lot of the students here,” says Bill Martin.

ORGANIC Horticultural Courses

As well as the year-long organic horticulture courses a distance (correspondence) programme in organics is also available.

The Biological Husbandry Unit Organics Programmes

The Organic Training College is located at the Biological Husbandry Unit at Lincoln University. There are 10 hectares of certified organic land as well as greenhouses, tunnel houses and research areas.

Applied Organics:

offer training at one of Australasia’s oldest organic farms. The BHU which is located at Lincoln University was established in 1976 and the programmes are offered in partnership with Telford, a Division of LincolnUniversity.

designer’s alter ego Then I researched it and thought ‘oh, gee, what have I got myself in for?’ We did the orientation performance and then I brought the show to Christchurch for a fiveweek run and sold out Fat Eddie’s in Sol Square. Then they asked us to stay for a weekly show. So that was the start of your Ayla’s Angels Burlesque troupe and academy? There were five of us originally. They have all moved on and I have carried the troupe and the academy on. We are the biggest troupe in New Zealand now. Your burlesque name is Nancy Nightshade. Is that just an alternative name or is Nancy a completely different character? It’s a character. She is more confident than me and she is very, very cheeky but she is a lady – with a halo around her knees. What does that mean? That means we are not too risque on stage. We keep our knees together, our shoulders back and have good posture. We prefer the vintage comedy vaudeville style with adult innuendo and cabaret dance. A lot of people assume that we are heavily in the striptease and adult entertainment industry but we are actually based on comedy and quirky costuming. And you find that comedy and burlesque go well together?

GLAMOUR: A model wearing clothing designed by Ms Wasely. Yeah, I am also a performing clown with years of family entertainment experience, so I pool the clowning with the dance and it ends up being a unique combination. Is it fun getting into a different persona? It is lots of fun. It’s harder though for a lot of people who find it easier to do, say, the striptease aspect and do a performance without the comedy and storyline

on top. Some of my students have won national burlesque titles and I think the thing that sets them apart from the rest of the country has been the comedy and storyline and character work. I teach guys as well which is also interesting. Do you get a lot of guys come through the academy? They come and go quite often. They tend to already be performers, whether they play a musical instrument or they are acrobatic or they sing and we teach them to have some more confidence. We are also strongly supportive of all shapes and sizes and believe that beauty comes from within and you don’t have to be beautiful to go on stage. Sometimes we do non-burlesque shows that are more theatre-based. Dark theatre. Are you working on any of shows at the moment? We have got one show every month but our next big one we are working on is a Victorian asylum show with elements of burlesque and is also a musical theatre and comedy show. That is going to be in the Body Festival in October. Think Jack the Ripper mixed with musician Emilie Autumn. You of course set up the Action for East Christchurch group after the September 4 earthquake. How long did you do the earth-

ATTITUDE: Ange Wasely describes her Nancy Nightshade character as cheeky and more confident than herself. quake advocacy for? Until the second (February 22) earthquake, really. When the first one happened, only a small pocket of Christchurch was severely affected and the rest of the city didn’t really jump up to help as much as they should or could have. When the second earthquake happened there was enough attention and we had already put the foundations in place for help to

start flowing. I started the action group not because I felt I was outspoken but because people were asking for help and some weren’t able to ask loudly enough – whether they didn’t speak English or they were too shocked or they were elderly or people who weren’t well. Someone from the media interviewed me and because I spoke clearly and specifically they came back to keep interviewing me and that’s how it started. We ended up starting CanCERN (The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Network) and after that was up and running I pulled back. You’re a mother as well? Yes, I have two children– a 12-year-old (Toby Grant) and a two-year-old (Trent Hewitt). I actually proposed to Trent’s dad, Vince, on stage at the Miss Tassels burlesque competition a couple of months ago, so now we are getting married. Was that nerve-wracking, proposing in front of a crowd? Yeah – everybody screamed so I couldn’t hear his answer but he stuck his finger out to show he said ‘yes.’ It was impromptu so I didn’t have a ring organised. The only thing I had was a piece of costume jewellery out the back so I took that on stage and used it. I figured life is too short so if you have got something good, hold on to it.

Request to lease land for growth of Rolleston School BY TOM DOUDNEY The Ministry of Education wants to lease land to help Rolleston School cope with roll growth, only 12 months after saying the school had plenty of space. The ministry recently requested that the district council consider leasing a strip of businesszoned land on Norman Kirk Rd, bordering the school. The school was involved in a public spat with the ministry and the district council in July last year after the ministry refused to buy the same land and the district council refused to lower its price. At the time, the school complained that it had less space compared to Clearview Primary and the new West Rolleston Primary School but ministry head of education infrastructure service Kim Shannon said that under national guidelines the school had enough space for up to 1300 pupils. A report prepared by district council chief executive David Ward for tomorrow’s meeting noted the ministry had previously “indicated they were not interested in leasing this land, albeit a change of view was expressed earlier in 2015.” Mr Ward would be meeting with ministry representatives to discuss

Andrew Morrall: “We are in need of additional space.’’ the potential conditions of a lease. “Such details will include assessed market value of the land to be leased, defined usage and the process for which this land would be handed back to council.” Rolleston School principal Andrew Morrall said the ministry appeared to be doing its best to ensure the school had adequate playing space as its roll continued to grow.

“I am delighted and the board [of trustees] is certainly delighted that this has been given some consideration,” he said. “We have always said that compared to other schools in our area, particularly the newer schools, that we are in need of additional space and it would certainly be welcomed.” The school expects to have 803 children on its roll when next term begins in two weeks’ time – about the same number as it had by the end of last year. Mr Morrall said the roll was likely to be closing in on 900 by the end of this year and would only keep growing in the short term. “I expect it to keep growing, especially given the Devon Park subdivision and those sorts of places opening up to the north-west of us on the main road. That is going gangbusters,” he said. “The good thing is the ministry has recognised that and they are buying land for additional primary schooling in the area, which is great.” West Rolleston Primary School is due to open next year and another new primary school is expected to open in 2017. Ministry staff have been invited to tomorrow’s district council meeting to answer questions.

Kids take part in Kowhai Sanctuary restoration GREEN FINGERS: Year 3 and 4 pupils at West Melton School, including Isobel Vane, left, and Leaha Washington, participated in a Discovery Plantout Day at Kowhai Sanctuary. The children were working with the district council’s Enviroschools co-ordinator Matt Stanford and Te Ara Kakariki Greenway Trust co-ordinator Brooke Turner. The aim was to help restore native vegetation communities that will contribute habitat for fauna and improve waterway health.

Soldiers of Selwyn Men killed in action at Ancre 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 Eric Andrew Gray Eric Andrew Gray was born at Hororata on October 20, 1895, to Andrew and Emily Gray. He was a farm labourer for Selwyn County Council before enlisting on April 4, 1916. He had previous military experience with the 13th Regiment Canterbury and West Coast. Gray was assigned to C Company, 15th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, and embarked for England on July 26. On November 3, while at Etaples in France, he was deemed improperly dressed on parade and had to spend two days confined to barracks. He was sent to join the 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on November 8. After suffering a gunshot wound to his neck on June 7, 1917, he spent 10 weeks in hospital in England. He returned to France in December and after spending Christmas at Etaples he joined the 1st Battalion Canterbury

Regiment in the field on January 6, 1918. Gray was killed in action on March 27, 1918, aged 22. The New Zealand Division was tasked that day with holding up the advance of the German troops towards Amiens, along the Ancre Valley. They faced four counterattacks that day.

Soldiers of Selwyn www.selwynlibrary.co.nz

Valley and around Meteren • Rifleman Thomas Albert James Page Thomas Albert James Page was born at Hororata on February 26, 1896, to William and Sarah Jane Page. Before enlisting on March 6, 1917, Page was an engineer’s assistant. He had previous military experience with the Canterbury Yeomanry Cavalry but was no longer serving as he had been released as medically unfit. He had been previously rejected for war service on account of chronic rheumatism and after his medical examination he was classed as B1(able to be made fit by medical treatment). Page was assigned to New Zealand Rifle Brigade Reinforcements, H Company, and embarked for Devonport on June 12, 1917. However, on August 18, the day of his arrival, he was taken straight to 5th General Hospital “sick”. He was later transferred to the 3rd NZ General Hospital at Codford on September 14 and was finally taken on strength at Codford on September 17. Page was transferred to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade at Brocton before leaving for France on October 23. He joined 1st Battalion, 3rd Rifle Brigade, A Company in the field on November 2, but was back to a field ambulance on December 4 with “debility”. Given that it was winter, it may have been due to rheumatism. He rejoined his unit on December 18. Page was killed in action on April 5, 1918, aged 22, during fighting in the Ancre Valley. He is buried in Euston Road Cemetery, Somme, and remembered on the Hororata War Memorial.

• Sergeant Leonard Wesley Peryman Leonard Wesley Peryman was born at Tai Tapu on August 19, 1884, to Henry Edward and Catherine Mary Peryman. Peryman was farming with his father before enlisting on June 26, 1916. He was assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade, 9th Reinforcements, 3rd Battalion, G Company, and was promoted to Corporal before embarking for Plymouth on October 6. In England, Peryman reverted to Lance Corporal with the 5th Reserve battalion and was sent to the School of Instruction at Tidworth to study as a Musketry instructor. He qualified 2nd Class and was an instructor at Sling Camp. Between April 23 and May 18 he was sent to Hayling Island to be trained in how to use a Lewis gun – a light machine gun which replaced the heavier Vickers machine gun. He was promoted to Corporal on May 10 and then to Temporary Sergeant on August 8. He then proceeded to Brocton, the base of the Rifle Brigade, where as usual he relinquished sergeant rank on November 20 before embarking for France. Peryman joined the 3rd Battalion, 3rd NZ Rifle Brigade and was posted to D company in the field on December 31, 1917. He was wounded in action on April 5, 1918, when a shell exploded nearby, suffering wounds to his head, chest and shoulder. He died of his wounds the next day, aged 33.

Somme, and remembered on the Tai Tapu War Memorial. • Private William Henry Breeze William Henry Breeze was born in Auckland on May 26, 1894, to William Henry and Margaret Breeze. He lived with his grandparents up to the time of going into camp and listed them as his employer. He was very popular in the Southbridge district, and was a member of the Old Oak Lodge of Druids. He had previous military experience with the 13th Regiment and was still serving at time of enlistment. Breeze’s obituary noted that he had enlisted in the artillery during the first year of the war and after being in camp for some time was discharged as medically unfit. Determined to serve his country, he underwent a serious operation in Christchurch, which was entirely successful. He had been discharged from camp on April 28, 1915, rejected for a goitre but it had been removed leaving only the scar on his neck that was recorded at examination. Breeze re-enlisted at on October 5, 1916, and was assigned to the 21st Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company. Once again he had problems when in camp, being admitted to hospital with influenza on November 4 and 9, 1916. However, he was well enough to embark for England on January 19, 1917. There he joined 3rd Battalion, Canterbury Infantry. He left for France on May 28 but was not attached to the battalion in the field until February 8, 1918. He was killed in action on April 17, 1918, aged 24, while serving with No 2 NZ Entrenching Battalion. This battalion was essentially a training unit from early 1918, and acted as a feeder unit to replace

casualties in the line battalions. It had been stationed at Abeele and was rushed south to provide extra troops during the fighting around Meteren. Breeze’s body was not found or identified and his name is on the Messines Ridge Memorial to the Missing. He is remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Southbridge plaque and the Southbridge School Roll of Honour. • Private Percy David Clive Percy David Clive was born at Lincoln on December 7, 1888, to James and Mary Ann Clive. He was employed on the railway in Waipara as clerk before enlisting on July 25, 1916. Clive was assigned to C Company, 19th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion and promoted to Lance Corporal before embarking for Devonport on November 15. In England, he reverted to the ranks before leaving for France. He joined 13th Company, 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on May 25. Clive was sent to hospital on June 10 with what was noted as pyrexia of unknown origin, a medical term usually applied to trench fever, a moderately serious disease transmitted by body lice. He was discharged on July 18 and rejoined his unit on August 11. Clive was wounded on October 15, admitted to No 16 General Hospital and then on to Convalescent Depot. He rejoined his unit on December 8. On April 14, Clive suffered multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to 3rd Canadian Station-

ary Hospital at Doullens but died there the same day. He is buried in Doullens Communal Cemetery, Somme, and remembered on the Prebbleton War Memorial. • Private Duncan Alexander Duncan Alexander was born at Annat on February 7, 1893, to James and Mary Ellen Duncan. He was a sheep-drover, bringing sheep from Canterbury through to Kumara. He had previous military experience with the 13th Regiment for five years. Alexander enlisted on February 21, 1917, and was assigned to C Company, 25th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Regiment. He embarked on April 26, 1917. Two months after his arrival, he left for France being posted to 1st Company, 3rd Battalion Canterbury Regiment on October 9. On October 18, he was gassed in a shell attack, probably chlorine gas, and sent to hospital in England. It wasn’t until December 28 that he was well enough to be attached to the strength again at Codford. After being sent back to France, he was attached to the No 2 Entrenching Battalion and joined them in the field on March 28. Alexander was killed in action on April 14, 1918, aged 25, presumably when the battalion was rushed south to provide extra troops during the fighting around Meteren. He is buried in Meteren Military Cemetery, France, and remembered on the Malvern County and Sheffield war memorials. • Selwyn Libraries welcomes your feedback or any information you can provide regarding these soldiers.

GET AWAY FROM THE COLD

TO FIJI

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.

Register my dog online? During July dog owners will need to register or re-register their dogs. Owners need to register by 31 July and registering your dog by this date enables you to take advantage of a discounted dog registration rate. This year we have introduced online dog registration. The new system allows you to register your dog from home. To use the system you need your customer and dog owner number. Dog owners who provided the Council with their email address would have received an email from Council on 23 June with this information. If you didn’t receive an email you should have been posted dog registration papers last week with these numbers. Whether you received an email or were posted papers you can register your dog online. To use the new system please visit www.selwyn.govt.nz and select the dog registration story on the website homepage. Click on the link provided in the story which will take you to the registration form. You will need to create a user name and password which you will use again to register your dog next year. Once you’ve done this please check your details are correct on the online form. If you need to change your address, add or take off a dog you can do this on the web page. Then you can make an online payment.

If your dog registration papers were posted rather than emailed to you, this is because we don’t have your email address so please contact dogrego@selwyn. govt.nz with your owner number and your email address. This will allow us to email you in the future regarding dog registration.

People wanting to join local sport and recreation groups can check their Have a Go Day passports for contact details or visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/recreation.

JOB WELL DONE: Prebbleton Nature Park volunteers, from left, Professor Ian Spellerberg, Michele Frey, Jim Hutton, Rona Ryan, Marian Frey and David Jarvis received the Te Waka o Aoraki award at the park. PHOTO: PAULA SMITH

Nature park receives conservation award Prebbleton Nature Park has received the Canterbury Aoraki Conservation Board’s annual Te Waka o Aoraki award, for projects which make an outstanding contribution to conservation. The award was presented to volunteers at an informal ceremony held at the park, following a walk around the site by board members and Department of Conservation staff. The board’s acting chairman David Round said it was remarkable what had been achieved in less than a decade, with the park having become “a veritable oasis of original ecology set in the biodiversity desert of the agricultural

plains, right at the edge of the sprawling city.” He thanked the volunteers who created and maintained it for all their work. The park is comprised of 2.6ha of former gravel pit and rubbish dump which was leased for grazing up until 2002. It is located alongside Springs Rd, just south of Prebbleton. In 2003 a neighbour, Michelle Frey, presented the district council with a concept plan for restoring the natural habitat of the area. Since then gorse and broom have been cleared and more than 7000 locallysourced natives have been planted. The park is open to visitors ev-

ery day and is used for recreation, including picnics. It is especially popular with dog walkers. It was nominated for the award by former board member Dr John Keoghan. Volunteers present to receive the award included Jim Hutton, Rona Ryan, David Jarvis, Michelle and Marian Frey, and Margaret and John Hayman. The Te Waka o Aoraki trophy is carved from rimu and features a large pounamu river stone. The carving represents Ngāi Tahu history and whakapapa, and the links between people and the natural world.

Lincoln’s Down by the Liffey Gallery will open its latest exhibition, Abstract Relations, tomorrow. The art by Ruth Killoran and Anne Dillon juxtapose the familiar and unfamiliar in the world of fantasy and emotion. The gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am-4pm and the exhibition runs until August 2.

Warm and dry homes

Free expert advice will be offered by the Community Energy Action at the Darfield Library on Thursday, 7-9pm, on how to stay warm and healthy this winter and conserve power use. Advice covers subsidies, funding, tips and best value resources. This event is hosted by Malvern Enviro and the Two Rivers Community Trust.

World of water

Discover, through fun activities, the living world of water and how

people can make a difference at this Lincoln Envirotown Trust event at the Lincoln Event Centre on Friday at 10.30am. Suitable for three to 12-year-olds. A $2 donation per child would be appreciated.

Talk for farmers

This free talk, Innovate or Stagnate, by sheep and beef farmer, Doug Avery, is intended to be a catalyst for farmers to change their current state of play and thinking to enable success in an environment of tough economic conditions, mounting compliance and an increase in extreme weather events. The talk will be held in Lincoln University’s S1 lecture theatre on July 16 at 7pm. Tickets are required for entry, register at www.resilientfarmer.co.nz • See the www.kidsfest.co.nz for details of all KidsFest events over the school holidays.

Darfield

– the gateway to Canterbury’s skifields

With the recent dump of snow, the ski season is well underway and skifield operators and enthusiasts alike will be hoping for a long season.

T

he Selwyn district has more than its fair share of skifields that include: Porters, Broken River, Craigieburn, Mt Cheeseman, Mt Olympus, Temple Basin and Mt Hutt, and most have already opened for the season. Making the most of a day on the slopes means an early start. Darfield is close to many Canterbury skifields, making it a great place to stop for a cooked breakfast or early morning snack. It also offers the opportunity to pick up ski equipment on the way. When weary after a day on the slopes, Darfield is a great place to stop for a coffee, hot chocolate or dinner, and where better than the Terrace Winebar and Restaurant. This restaurant is a perfect spot to call in

for dinner. It is warm and cosy, especially with a gas fire to snuggle around. Owners Julz and George Ridgen offer a fabulous selection of food that includes light meals, mains, bar meals and desserts. There are comfort foods of soup, Buffalo wings or spicy chicken wontons as entrées, with light meals such as Creamy Mushroom Gnocchi or Lamb Rogan Josh that give a warm feeling after a day in the snow. A wide range of mains are available at the Terrace Winebar and Restaurant from their classy lamb racks to steaks, such as their beef fillet and porterhouse as well as the Chatham Island Blue Cod which is to die for. They also cater for dietary needs such as vegetarian and gluten-free

options. “All a customer has to do is ask,” explains George. Finish off the meal and day with some Sticky Date Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce before embarking on the final leg of your journey home after a great day’s playing in the snow.

LAWyerS

▌READER’S ▌ LETTER I note with interest the comments of the chairwoman of the Rolleston Residents’ Association, Lynley Shaw (the Selwyn Times, June 23), about the district council’s proposals regarding the introduction of a district-wide rate for halls and community centres, water and wastewater. There were 368 submissions to the Long Term Plan and the mayor advised that the proposal for halls and community centres failed to attract the same level of support as the water and wastewater. Council has signalled its intention to review the rating on

19

halls and community centres in the future. I would like to remind the mayor that council received 395 submissions to its 2012/13 Annual Plan, 200 of which related to introducing a district-wide rate to help spread the Lincoln Event Centre’s costs.

Rolleston and Lincoln centres obviously are not considered district facilities by our civic masters. Roll on the next elections. When it comes to water and wastewater, this council can introduce a district-wide rate in the blink of an eye to help the smaller communities struggling to maintain  their

facilities, but cannot help communities providing district facilities such as the Rolleston and Lincoln centres. With the introduction of a district-wide wastewater rate, will council proceed to promote a sewerage scheme for Darfield? After all, everyone in towns district-wide will be able to contribute now, with the exception of rural ratepayers of course because the efficient disposal of waste in their district is not their concern. I fully concur with Lynley Shaw’s comments. – Terance Hancock, Lincoln

Professor of Plant Science at Lincoln University, whose topic will be ‘A scientist’s guide to transform dryland farming.’ The short story is one of the pre-eminent art forms of the modern period, as evident in the work of authors like Chekhov, Joyce and Kafka. In this Monday morning course tutor John Wall will look at the way these authors combine lyrical and narrative art forms to generate powerful and enduring expressions of everyday life. Participants will read a selection of works by middle to late twentieth-century writers exploring themes of loss, love, fantasy, the absurd and politics. John Wall lives in Christchurch and commutes to Kabul, where he is Associate Professor of English at the American University of Afghanistan.

Broadband in Selwyn

HONOURED: Kieran Kennedy being presented with his award by retired NASA astronaut Wendy Lawrence and retired EEA president Bob Simpson. PHOTO: EEA

Country’s top engineer to share knowledge in Belarus BY TOM DOUDNEY

A Rolleston man has been named New Zealand’s top young engineer. Kieran Kennedy, 29, was presented with the Electricity Engineers’ Association Young Engineer of the Year award for his work overseeing equipment upgrades for a number of Transpower substations. The award was open to applicants aged under 35. As a result, Mr Kennedy, a power engineer for Mitton

ElectroNet, will represent New Zealand at a series of workshops in Minsk, Belarus, in October. The workshops bring together engineers from around the world to learn and share their own knowledge. Mr Kennedy said it would be an honour and privilege to discuss his experiences from the New Zealand power industry with his peers from around the world. “We’re pretty isolated down here in New Zealand so I’m excited to see how others around

the world do similar things.” He was excited about the trip to Belarus. “I plan to take a holiday afterwards to spend time in Russia and Germany. There are some factories in Germany I would like to visit to see how they build the 33,000-volt indoor switchgear that I specify in my designs.” On his return, he intended to prepare a paper for the 2016 EEA conference to share his experience and learnings with others in the power industry.

In my role as Minister for Communications, I get to visit a lot of businesses that are enjoying the benefits offered by the Government’s Ultra-Fast Broadband programme. I firmly believe that faster, more reliable broadband is essential to growing our local economy. It has become a vital component in how we conduct business, how we educate our children and even how we provide health services to our wider community. Faster broadband is also integral to the way many people choose to spend their leisure time. Many of our communities around Selwyn are already enjoying the benefits of UFB and the Government’s complementary Rural Broadband Initiative for areas that are more remote or have smaller populations. The uptake of UFB in Rolleston has been exponential with 35 per cent of homes and businesses already connected to fibre broadband by March this year. Lincoln was not far behind, with over a quarter of homes and businesses connected. What we are seeing in these communities is a real transformation, and, if this rate of growth continues, it is likely that by the end of this year more people in Rolleston will be enjoying the benefits of fibre broadband than those remaining on copper. Meanwhile, many other Selwyn communities have had upgrades to their internet and mobile

services via new RBI towers, including Glentunnel, Castle Hill and West Melton. Chorus has also completed or is currently completing upgrades to its broadband infrastructure in Springfield, Tai Tapu and Kirwee. The UFB and RBI projects make up one of New Zealand’s most ambitious infrastructure programmes. The 2015 Budget provided additional funding of $210 million for UFB and $150 million for RBI. These funds will secure the next stage of the UFB network and contribute to major improvements in rural broadband as well as filling mobile black spots. As the funds are contestable, the Government is seeking submissions from all councils by the end of this week. The submissions need to detail why those areas chosen should be a priority and how the council and communities would support the build and uptake of phase two of the UFB and RBI roll-out. It is really important that the district council uses the information it has gathered from its recent survey of internet and mobile services in our region to make a strong case so more people in our community can enjoy the benefits of high-quality communication services.

Easy-to-grow raspberries tempt

Hannah Zwartz says every garden has space for raspberries

Raspberries are a great crop for the home gardener as they’re best eaten straight from the garden. The berries quickly go soft and soggy in punnets, but when freshpicked, melt in your mouth with a unique, sweet, yet slightly musty, flavour. Most of mine never make it even as far as the kitchen, but are enjoyed as delicious al fresco snacks: one of the gardener’s perks. The best raspberry grove I’ve seen is at the Edible Schoolyard in Berkeley, California, where red and yellow raspberries, with different fruiting periods, are grown in long rows. Students are free to forage here, and it’s usually the first place they head when visiting the garden. Wendy Johnson, a teacher at the Edible Schoolyard, writes: “In the six years that I have worked at the Edible Schoolyard, I have never tasted a ripe raspberry. The kids get them all, and no raspberry has ever been shipped to the kitchen… not even to enhance a special dessert, which is just as it should be, since a shippable raspberry is a

ATTRACTIVE: Raspberries can also be a garden feature on your property. blasphemy under heaven.” Even a small garden has room for a few raspberry canes. Their upright habits mean that if space is tight, two or three can be trained around a tall post. They can be grown in containers, too, as their root system is quite shallow. Three

plants will fit into a half-barrel, with a tall wire cylinder as a tower of support. Some varieties, such as ‘Heritage’, are smaller-growing and don’t necessarily require a support structure. You will need to be vigilant with watering, however, to prevent the tub from drying out.

in the spotlight:

Organic Compost What is it? Intelligro’s Organic Compost is made on our site, blended from sustainable and natural products, with no green waste or soil added. We carefully monitor our process to create this product and take pride in the end result. It is also one of our most popular products!

What would I use Organic Compost for in my garden? Our Organic Compost is designed to improve the overall quality of your soil. It does this in a number of ways:  Improves moisture retention, reducing water loss especially during the warmer weather  Adds vital nutrients to the soil  Improves and stabilizes pH  Improves drainage and reduces erosion  Conditions the soil to create a healthier growing environment  Helps to create a more even soil temperature

All of these things help to create the best growing environment for your plants. The great thing about compost is it will also work to remove any pollutants that are already in your garden – pretty clever really! Also, due to its organic properties, you can feel safe knowing that there is nothing harmful in this product.

If you’ve got a little more space, raspberries can be grown as a narrow hedge with a wire up the middle. My grandfather grew them this way in his Nelson garden, carefully netting them against birds, and harvesting enough each

year for a few pots of his favourite raspberry jam. Gardeners with even more space can build a walk-in berry cage to keep away birds. Elsewhere, I’ve seen raspberries growing well as a companion plant under espaliered apple trees, giving clues as to their woodland origins. It has been said of raspberries that they enjoy their ‘feet in the shade, heads in the sun.’ While this saying doesn’t need to be taken literally, it is true that raspberries, like many other berries, do well in conditions that mimic their natural forest-fringe habitat. Raspberries need sun to fruit well, but they don’t like dry, baking heat, preferring a coolish root run that never totally dries out. Too much humidity or waterlogging is not good either, so if your soil is heavy, plant your raspberries along a ridge. The ideal conditions are a free-draining soil enriched with plenty of compost and leaf mould, and deeply mulched with rotting woodchip. Good positions for planting are an east-facing fence that gets morning sun, at the foot of deciduous trees such as apples, or as part of a hedgerow with other shrubs and berries. As raspberry roots are quite shallow and dense, don’t give them too much competition in that zone.

the taste buds Remove from the planting area any perennial weeds, such as buttercup or couch grass, as you won’t be able to do that once the roots have developed. Thick mulching helps protect the root zone. About two canes per person are recommended, planted about 80cm apart. You can plant closer but the gaps will very quickly fill because raspberries sucker prolifically. The tradition of growing raspberries in narrow hedges takes care of unwanted suckers that push their way into paths as they can be removed or mown over. The suckering habit of raspberries also means that gardeners with established raspberry canes often have spares to give away at this time of year. Red, yellow, white, purple or black? Most of today’s raspberries are red, from parents Rubus idaeus (thought to originate in Turkey, and found growing wild across Europe and north and west Asia) or R. strigosus, native to North America (where black raspberry R. occidentalis is also found). All these species also have albino-type mutations, which are grown as white and yellow varieties. Purple raspberries are crosses between the red and black. Whatever their origin, raspberry plants have been appreciated by humans for over 10,000 years. The flowers and leaves, as well as the berries, were used medicinally, and

DELICIOUS: Ripe raspberries are irresistible. astringent raspberry-leaf tea is still recommended by many herbalists during later pregnancy to help with a smooth labour (always check with a midwife before using). The tea is, apparently, rich in magnesium, potassium, iron and B vitamins. Pruning When pruning, first ascertain with which variety you are working. Is it early- (late spring-summer) or autumnfruiting? Or is it a dual-fruiter? Some types produce an early crop on the previous year’s canes, then a second autumn crop on new season’s canes. Early fruiting (late spring-summer) varieties need attention in autumn, when all canes that have produced fruit can be cut back to ground level (these will not fruit heavily again). Any damaged, spindly or weak canes should also be removed. Choose the six strongest new canes and tie them in to supports. Next year, these canes will bear fruit on small laterals growing off

the main cane. There is a really good video showing how to do this on the Royal Horticultural Society website (www.rhs.org.uk). Autumn fruiting varieties produce fruit on the new stems that grew in spring. To prune, simply cut the entire plant back to ground level in late winter. As new shoots are produced in spring, they are tied onto training wires. If plants get overcrowded in summer, reduce canes to about six or eight per plant. For a detailed description of raspberry pruning for different varieties, see the Incredible Edibles website: www.edible.co.nz If it all seems a bit complicated, try following the advice of the late Mike Beech of Victoria Line Orchard in Levin. He told me to try bending raspberry canes that have fruited, pushing the tips down to the ground. If they are brittle enough to snap, they’re ready to be pruned and if they are still bendy and flexible, leave them to fruit next year.

UPRIGHT: Plant two raspberry canes per person in the household.

MOTORING

BMW carries on sports car tradition WHEN I picked up BMW’s 220i recently for evaluation, I noticed an early BMW Z3 sports car sitting at the dealership. That car was the predecessor of the Z4 and a host of exciting soft and hard tops within those two series. The test car was also a convertible and I couldn’t help but think how much influence the Z3 and Z4 had on the newcomer. The 220i, also available here as a coupe, has looks and a feel which has been developed steadily through the decades. But there is a fundamental difference between those early convertibles and the 220i, the latter is a four-seater – well, effectively it is a 2+2 – the rear seating area is best for those slight of build, or children. But in true BMW fashion the 220i is engineered so that those on board get the fundamentals which make up the BMW buying experience, along with the engineering elements created for dynamic motoring. Under the bonnet sits a turbocharged four-cylinder engine of 1997cc. It is sited north/south and drives through an eightspeed automatic gearbox to the rear wheels – a traditional BMW mechanical layout, and one which provides the driver with an involving driving feel. BMW rates the twin-camshaft, 16-valve engine at 135kW and 270Nm, these aren’t huge outputs, but they are enough to satisfy in

terms of performance – a standstill to 100km/h time of 7.6sec is claimed, along with a 226km/h top speed. If you also take into account the weight of the 220i at 1530kg, the power-to-weight ratio is biased significantly towards performance, while the proximity of gearbox ratios means the engine doesn’t need to labour to fill the gaps, and all of that has a positive effect on performance and economy. In terms of fuel use, BMW have engineered idle stop/start into the 220i series, as well as an Ecopro drive mode which encourages the driver to use the car in a fuelfriendly manner. I used Ecopro quite a bit during the time I had the test car and it doesn’t stifle performance greatly, of course the other modes – sport and sport plus – are there to constantly tempt the driver into a style befitting of the brand, but when you are at a leisurely pace, Ecopro fits well. BMW also claims a 6.4-litre per 100km (44mpg) combined cycle fuel usage rating. My time with the test car listed constantly around 8l/100km (35mpg) with a 5.6l/100km (50mpg) figure avail-

I was too busy steering and enjoying the seemingly endless series of corners. The 220i convertible lists here at $72,800 and comes with the many specification items that BMW does so well. It is also a luxury car, and that means a high fitment level, too numerous to detail at length, but it’s fair to say the 220i buyer won’t be disappointed. For me, I’d be a coupe buyer, I became quite smitten with it when I drove it earlier in the year. However, I know convertibles have their place, even in Canterbury mid-winter. Incidentally, the softtop transformation to open air motoring takes around 20sec and is done by a simple flick of the switch. The test car captured quite a bit of attention during the time I was out and about testing, I don’t think it has quite the panache of the Z-series cars, but it certainly encapsulates everything BMW does well as a manufacturer of exciting cars.

Make your home eco-friendly

E

arly New Zealand houses were aligned with the street rather than the sun. Today, we design homes to maximise the sun particularly in the living areas, reducing the amount of heating required. If your home is older and the sunniest room in the house is the bathroom, consider reconfiguring the layout! Solar panels In a country with abundant sun and warmth, it seems extraordinary that solar energy isn’t our first choice for water heating. Initial setup costs are recouped quickly and even if your solar panels supplement your electricity usage, you’ve still saved on the bills and done your bit for conservation. Exterior cladding While low maintenance materials are often viewed as eco-friendly, the most natural and renewable resource is timber. As a large producer of timber, it’s not surprising that NZ still uses it widely for framing if not for exterior cladding. Windows Double glazed windows ensure your home conserves heat and can be fitted in both new and existing homes. Complemented by tinting and/or insect screens, they also reduce summer glare and heat, protect from insects and allow passive flow of fresh air thus reducing reliance on air conditioning. Insulation Insulate, insulate, insulate! Nothing improves the internal environment more effectively. For dedicated environmentalists, the use of wool insulation may be considered, both for its effectiveness and fire retardant properties. Walls, tiles and floors Dark coloured floor tiles and thermomass interior walls absorb heat and slow release it later in the day. If that’s not an option,

a sun-drenched interior wall painted in a dark colour can have a similar though less effective result. Eco paints made without harsh chemicals are becoming increasingly popular and solution-dyed synthetic carpets are kinder to asthma and allergy sufferers. Heating To reduce air pollution, we have introduced cleaner burning appliances such as pellet fires, approved wood burning stoves and gas fires, as well as various forms of electrical heating such as underfloor, warm air circulation systems and heat pumps. Central heating of air or water-filled radiators is also efficient, using a single energy source to warm several rooms. Other eco-friendly ideas • Install a rain water tank for garden irrigation or car wash • Recycle your rubbish • Use low-wattage light bulbs • Wrap hot water cylinders to retain heat • Choose thermal lined drapes • Buy appliances with optimum energy ratings • Turn off appliances when not in use • Fix any dripping taps to conserve water • Cut back trees and foliage close to the house • Let the sunshine in – even in winter

LINCOLN SECTIONS Natural waterways, attractive reserves, tennis court, UFB, some with water views. Sections from 605m2 to 777m2 and start at just $197,000. Secure one of our titled sections today or select a section available in Spring and pay later. Builders terms also available. Sales Office open Wednesdays 10.30 - 2.30 & Sundays 12.30 - 4.30 or call for an appointment anytime. Call or email Mike Hobbs 027 570 7674, broadfieldestates@xtra.co.nz | www.liffeysprings.co

This plan has many well-appointed features that are currently sought in a new house, including four bedrooms, two living areas, two bathrooms and a double garage. A clear separation of living from bedrooms is created in this house which has a number of ideal features, such as a study nook neatly sited at one end of the

StoneBRooK – a community to call home With sections from 373m2 to 850m2 the world is your oyster for section size and price.

The Village Yards Playground in Stonebrook Park
