Support for couple after fire guts house BY TOM DOUDNEY

“I have had some clothes given to me and people ringing up to say ‘if there is anything we can do, if you need stuff, just come and tell me’. ” Mrs Wilson had left the log burner set on low before driving to a house cleaning job in Springston. She was on the way there when she received a call from the local garage to say her house was on fire. Mr Wilson was on business in Nelson at the time. •Turn to page 2

An Ellesmere couple have been finding solace in the kindness of others and some surprising discoveries amongst the ashes of their home, after it was destroyed by fire. Diane and Ron Wilson’s house on their 11ha lifestyle block near Doyleston was gutted by the flames but not everything inside was lost. Mrs Wilson was surprised to find treasured family photographs from their wedding and her mother’s childhood had survived the blaze. Unfortunately, photographs of her grandmother’s wedding had not been so lucky and her wedding rings had also been damaged. The couple had been unable to fully insure the house, which they had lived in for 20 years, due to its age. Mrs Wilson said she wasn’t sure what they would be able to build as a replacement but “it might not be much.” However, the most important thing was that nobody had been hurt. “It is upsetting but there is no point falling apart because you have still got to keep going.” They were currently staying at their neighbour’s mother’s house in Leeston and other people had come forward offering them places to rent. MrsSelwyn Wilson Times said it was touching 266mm xfriends, 90mmfamily and how supportive locals had been.

NEW WHEELS: From left, Malvern Health Trust chairman Ian Warren, district nurses Bridget Mortlock, Steph Wason and Mary Roberts, and trust co-ordinator Vicki Mulholland, were handed the keys to two Holden Trax cars on Thursday. The new cars, which replace older vehicles used by the district nurses, were partly funded by $17,000 raised at a Malvern Lions golf tournament, with sponsorship also coming from Fulton Hogan, John Holland and Taylor Contracting.

Paradise Found It seems cliche to say that I love our piece of paradise here at the bottom of the world. But it’s true. We do live in a part of the world blessed with the best. My family have been well trained to travel with me. We chance upon painting opportunities on every hairpin gravel road. Half an hour can make the difference between something that begs to be painted and just another hill. 8am. When the light catches the fronds of the nikau and they pop with yellow light. 4pm. The hour when the sun starts to head for the hills and creates the most incredible shadows in the valleys. My inspiration for this show comes from a bushwalk I took with the family and some friends. Bushwacking up a small stream in summer, we were minding every step as we muddled over slippery rocks. I stopped for a minute and looked up. The way the sun caught the Nikau and Ponga fronds quite simply took my breath away. I called to the others and asked them to just stop and look up for a moment. “How beautiful is this!” I asked. Everyone stopped and with that there was only the sound of the stream washing over the rocks as we all took in this beauty. It was a kind of paradise. With all life presents us with today I would like to think that my paintings are windows through which we can escape to a bright day when the winds are cold or our day is a little bleak. They are a call to action to stop every now and again to lift our heads and remember just how lucky we are. Kirsty Nixon

Most stand-downs at Lincoln High School Lincoln High School had the highest number of students sent home for bad behaviour last year, compared to other Selwyn schools. Figures show the school had 30 students stood down, two suspended and one excluded during 2014. However, its roll of 1520 means it has about twice as many students as the next largest in the district. In spite of having had only 513 students on its roll, Ellesmere College’s figures were similar to Lincoln’s, with 25 students stood down and five suspended. Darfield High School, with a roll of 764 , had eight students stood down and none suspended. Amongst the primary schools, Leeston School had the highest figures, with 10 pupils stood down, one suspended and one excluded. The school had a roll of 353. Southbridge School, with a roll of 160, had seven pupils stood down and two suspended.

No other primary school had more than three pupils stood down. Darfield High School principal James Morris, who is the New Zealand Secondary Principals’ Council Canterbury representative, said schools were trying to keep students engaged in school while managing bad behaviour. Drug or alcohol abuse, violence or continual disobedience were the most common reasons students were stood down or suspended. “For some students a stand-down will be a clear marker that they need to change. For other students there will be a number of stand-downs that will lead to suspension. On other occasions the behaviour is so significant a suspension is warranted immediately.” Mr Morris said removing a student from school was a valuable way to give the student space, and show them how serious their actions were.

School stand-downs, suspensions, exclusions and expulsions for 2014 Darfield High School: 8 stood down, 0 suspended, 0 excluded or expelled. Ellesmere College: 25 stood down, 5 suspended, 0 excluded or expelled. Lincoln High School: 30 stood down, 2 suspended, 1 excluded, 0 expelled. Broadfield School: 3 stood down, 0 suspended or excluded. Burnham School: 1 stood down, 0 none suspended or excluded. Clearview Primary: 3 stood down, 0 suspended or excluded. Dunsandel School: 1 stood down, 0 suspended or excluded.

Leeston School: 10 stood down, 1 suspended and 1 excluded. Lincoln Primary School: 2 stood down, 0 suspended or excluded. Prebbleton School: 1 stood down, 0 suspended or excluded. Rolleston School: 3 stood down, 0 suspended or excluded. Southbridge School: 7 stood down, 2 suspended , 0 excluded. Only schools that had at least one person stood down, suspended or excluded are listed. Figures for international students are not included.

▌IN ▌ BRIEF

Envirotown chair resigns The co-founder of the Lincoln Envirotown Trust Sue Jarvis has stepped down as chairwoman after 10 years in the role. As well as organising a number of local sustainability initiatives, the trust has spawned eight offshoot envirotown groups – Prebbleton, Tai Tapu, Malvern, Ellesmere, West Melton, Rolleston, Springston and Oxford. Mrs Jarvis said that over the 10 years, the trust had grown beyond her expectations and she hadn’t realised the extent to which it would take over her life. Sam Rowland is the new chairwoman, while Mrs Jarvis will remain a board member.

Clarification An article in last week’s Selwyn Times about two pedestrian crossings in Gerald St, Lincoln, incorrectly reported district council transportation asset engineer Mark Chamberlain as saying the lack of lighting around the crossings was an issue that had previously been raised with the council. Mr Chamberlain actually said it was an issue that had not previously been raised. The Selwyn Times apologises for the error.

RESTORATION: Prebbleton Nature Park volunteers (from left), Professor Ian Spellerberg, Michele Frey, Jim Hutton, Rona Ryan, Marian Frey and David Jarvis, with the Canterbury Aoraki Conservation Board Award.

Nature park volunteers receive award Volunteers have won an award for their outstanding contribution to conservation by developing Prebbleton Nature Park. The Canterbury Aoraki Conservation Board Award for a transformational restoration project was awarded to volunteers who helped plant and develop the park. Today the 2.6ha park has over 7000 native plants, and is home to some rare local native plant species as well as a range of birds and insects.

Michele Frey, who lives next door to the park, came up with the idea to rehabilitate the former gravel quarry site. She wanted to restore the area to its natural habitat and provide a tranquil area people could visit to enjoy nature. She approached Selwyn District Council in 2003 seeking support for the idea. Landscape architect Jo Sutherland designed the park, the council provided funding for planting and local volunteers have

contributed thousands of hours over the past decade to plant and maintain the park. “The objective was to regenerate the site with vegetation that once existed naturally on the Canterbury Plains,” she said. “This really is a dream come true. A beautiful park transformed from what was essentially nothing. And it is due to the massive commitment from the team of volunteers lead by Jim Hutton and supported by Selwyn District

Heating reduced at aquatic centre BY TOM DOUDNEY Heating to pools and changing rooms at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre is being cut during peak electricity use times to save money. However, the district council says the changes should not have much impact on pool users. A recent report to the district council’s audit and risk sub-committee said the heating changes had been recently implemented and were expected to save $66,000 a year. Power costs for the centre during the 2013/2014 financial year had cost about $290,683 and were expected to have been similar for the 2014/2015 year which ended on June 30. The report noted that reducing the heating temperature for the various bodies of water and the air temperature was not expected to have “dramatic impacts on the service delivered.” Selwyn aquatic facilities manager Kathy Moore said the changes included reducing heating into the main pool, switching off underfloor heating in the changing rooms and reducing the pool hall ventilation fan speed. “The main pool, being a large body of water, does not lose heat quickly. If the temperature drops more than 1 deg C, from 28 deg C to 27 deg C, the heating kicks back in,” Mrs Moore said. “The floors of the change rooms are concrete, and this retains heat. The temperature of the floor

changes very little over the short [power saving] period.” The pool hall ventilation fan still provided the same temperature

air, however, less air was pumped into the pool hall during this period. If the temperature of the pool hall dropped more than 1.5 deg C, the fan speed increased back to normal. “We have now joined many larger power users in load shedding, where cutting back on electricity use in high-demand periods during the day means that we are saving significant costs,” Mrs Moore said. “These high-demand periods

Flippa ball competition registrations Registrations are now open for children to join a fun Flippa ball competition at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre during term 3. Flippa ball is a modified junior version of water polo where players use one hand to catch, pass, shoot or defend the ball. The exception is the goalie, who may use two hands. The term 3 competition starts from August 2 and runs on Sundays from 4.30-6.30pm. The competition is open to children in years 4-7 and it costs $30 to register for eight sessions running in term 3. The competition was run by Wharenui water polo coach Paul Abraas and parent Jacqui Stewart and seven teams took part. Wharenui water polo players also ran weekly 20min coaching sessions for the players before their games. “Over the eight-week competition we saw a huge improvement in both the children’s Flippa ball skills and their swimming and water survival abilities. Flippa ball provides a great environment to develop team work, ball skills, water confidence and swimming ability in a fun and positive atmosphere,” aquatic centre spokeswoman Karli Haugh said. Anyone interested in registering to be part of the term three competition can register online at www.selwyn.govt.nz/selwynaquaticcentre or email selwynaquaticcentre@selwyn.govt.nz

Decision over kart club a step closer BY ANDREW KING

UPGRADED: Stu Hildreth of Sicon Ferguson, the district council’s contractor, with the new stormwater pump. pumps providing district council services continued to operate during power cuts when heavy snow blanketed much of Selwyn in June. A portable stormwater pump has also been bought by the district council, which can pump water during flooding or heavy rain. It is expected to be used in

Tai Tapu, where it will be used to pump stormwater into the Halswell River. It can pump 200-litres of water per second, more than twice that of the previous one which had a rate of 80-litres per second. Being trailer mounted, it can be quickly moved to other locations in flood events.

The district council also owns six smaller pumps for Civil Defence. District council asset manager Murray Washington said the new equipment would improve the resilience of public assets and keep services running smoothly during adverse weather.

A kart club is a step closer to knowing if it will move from its current location. A Riccarton-Wigram Community Board held an extraordinary meeting on Wednesday and recommended Christchurch Kart Club in Wigram move to a new location. The board has backed the city council’s position by recommending the club move to a new location with city council funding of $3.5 million for moving costs. It has also asked the city council to add an extra $100,000 towards the cost of consents. Community board chairman Mike Mora didn’t want to say where the club could be moving as there were a couple of different locations it could go. “If the karts or greyhounds decide they don’t want to move or can’t afford it. They have the fallback position of staying where they are.” Isaac Wildlife Trust’s operation, Peacock Springs, at McLeans Island has expressed concerns at the proposed relocation of the kart club to that area due to the noise generated by the club. The required consent for this site could be publicly notified and is likely to attract objections. “We have asked that the council add an extra $100,000 to help out with consent cost for the club,” Mr Mora said.

Selwyn’s emergency infrastructure has been beefed up to avoid a repeat of past failures which left people without water. New generators and a stormwater pump have been bought to help keep district council services running during power outages and heavy rainfall events. Over the past year, six new generators have been installed at Hororata, Kirwee, Rakaia Huts and Southbridge to help keep water and wastewater services operating in times of need. The decision to buy the extra generators followed the September 2013 windstorm, when widespread power outages affected Selwyn, with some areas being without power for more than a week. At that time, the district council owned enough generators to cope with localised or shortterm power outages but not enough to keep every water and wastewater service operating full time. Following the storm, generators had to be moved around the district with water services being intermittent in some areas. There are now 23 generators ready to operate with 13 installed at various water bores and treatment plants, eight installed at wastewater pump stations, as well as three large capacity portable generators which are moved between other sites if needed. The new generators helped to ensure that water and wastewater

Celebrating those who died in World War 1 With SelWyn librarieS www.selwynlibrary.co.nz

Sickness put soldiers on 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. Sapper Daniel Flanagan Daniel Flanagan was born on October 19, 1886, to Daniel and Alulie Flanagan, of Doyleston. In his youth he was a very successful cyclist at local sports meetings. He was mining at Nukumaru in the North Island before enlisting on January 3, 1917. Flanagan was assigned to the New Zealand Engineers, Tunnelling Company, 4th Reinforcements, and embarked for Devonport on February 16. He was admitted to hospital while at sea with bronchitis. In France, he joined his division in the field on June 10. He was evacuated on June 30 with tonsillitis, returning to his unit two weeks later. However, he was once again admitted for tonsillitis on October 8, passing through a number of medical units until he was discharged back to his unit on October 26. Flanagan had another bout of what appeared to be bronchitis, being evacuated on March 28, 1918, but the next day he was diagnosed to have been gassed by a shell. This would probably have been mustard gas. Flanagan’s previous episode of bronchitis on board ship may

indicate a susceptibility to the lung damaging effects of the gas. Exactly a month after he first showed symptoms he was placed on the dangerously-ill list with bronchopneumonia, having been transferred to No 24 General Hospital at Etaples. He died on May 8, 1918, aged 32. Flanagan is buried in the Etaples Cemetery, Pas de Calais, and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Leeston plaque. Private James Henry Lowe James Henry Lowe was born at Rolleston on April 22, 1885, to Levi and Amy Jane Lowe. He was farming at Rolleston before enlisting on May 18, 1917. Lowe was assigned to the 31st Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Regiment, C Company, and embarked for Devonport on November 16, 1917. In France, he joined the 2nd New Zealand Entrenching Battalion in the field on March 28. Lowe was killed in action on May 8, 1918, aged 33. The activities of the Entrenching Battalions were directed to the construction of rear defences, road formation and repair, tunnelling, cable-laying and other such

tasks. In early 1918, the division helped blunt the German Spring Offensive at the Somme, before the Allies went on the offensive in August. Lowe is buried in the KleinVierstraat British Cemetery, Ypres, and remembered on the Rolleston and Southbridge School rolls of honour. Private David McClelland David McClelland was born at Lakeside on August 27, 1884, to David and Elizabeth McClelland. He was farming in partnership with his brothers at Southbridge, before enlisting on May 31, 1917. McClelland was assigned to C Company, 31st Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Regiment, and embarked for Liverpool on November 16. He arrived on January 7 and, within a month, was sent to Tidworth Hospital on February 6 and then into quarantine after being diagnosed the very contagious Rubella, i.e. ‘German measles.’ He was finally released to march into Sling Camp on March 2 and left from there for France on March 20. McClelland arrived in Etaples four days later and, like most reinforcements at that time, was attached to an Entrenching Battalion which he joined in the field on March 28. He was killed in action on May 8, 1918, aged 33. He is buried along with James Lowe and five other soldiers from the Entrenching Battalion in Klein-Vierstraat Cemetery, 6km south of Ypres, and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Southbridge plaque and the Southbridge

School Roll of Honour. Driver Robert James Eaglesome Robert James Eaglesome was born at Prebbleton on October 27, 1894, to William and Helen Eaglesome. He was employed for a time by the Paparoa County Council but before enlisting, on June 16, 1915, his last employer was John Greenslade of Prebbleton. He had previous military experience with the Territorials. Eaglesome was assigned to the 6th Reinforcements Canterbury Mounted Rifles, and embarked with for Suez, arriving on September 19. At Gallipoli he was posted to the 1st Squadron Mounted Rifles on November 13, 1915. Surviving through the Somme and Messines battles he was sent to hospital on July 15 with pleurisy, and evacuated to England. It was September 7, before he was well enough to be sent to the convalescent hospital at Hornchurch and from there to Aldershot in October. More treatment was required at Codford and it was February 25 before he was discharged and sent back to Aldershot. On February 28, he was admitted to hospital again, being placed on the seriously-ill list on March 6. Then on March 20, he was placed on the dangerously-ill list with suspected enteritis. Eaglesome improved briefly but was dangerously ill again by April 8, this time diagnosed as suspected paratyphoid. He was moved to the Cambridge Hospital, Aldershot on May 20, still dangerously ill, but although they opened and drained a large abdominal abscess causing an intestinal perforation,

it did not help him and he died there from peritonitis on May 27, aged 24. He is buried in Aldershot Military Cemetery, Hampshire, England, and remembered on the Prebbleton War Memorial. Rifleman Samuel Francis Haughey Samuel Francis Haughey was born at Southbridge on September 16, 1886, to Samuel and the late Marie Haughey. He was farming near Rolleston before enlisting on December 15, 1916. He had previously been rejected for service because of a bad left eye. Haughey was assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade Reinforcements, G Company, and embarked for Devonport on March 14, 1917. In France, he was attached to A Company, 4th Battalion, 3rd New Zealand Rifle Brigade on July 11. Barely three months later he was sent to hospital sick with trench foot, a condition caused by prolonged exposure of the feet to damp, unsanitary, and cold conditions. The feet become numb and change colour as a result of poor blood supply and may begin to smell as the skin rots or ulcerates. He was treated at No 11 General Hospital at Camiers and then sent to recuperate at Trouville beside the sea. Haughey was finally fit and returned to duty on December 31. He rejoined the 4th Battalion in the field on January 26, 1918 but a few months later he was again sent to hospital, this time with pyrexia of unknown origin, otherwise known as trench fever or quintan fever, caused by infected body lice.

dangerously ill list After treatment, he rejoined the 4th Battalion in the field on May 2. Four days later he was detached to join the 179 Tunnelling Company but rejoined his unit on June 7. Haughey was killed in action on June 20, 1918, aged 32. He is buried in the Bertrancourt Military Cemetery and remembered on the Springston War Memorial. His colourised photograph was one of four found beneath the stage of the Rolleston Memorial Hall. Private Thomas James Clinton Thomas James Clinton was born at Darfield on June 7, 1893, to William Francis and Mary Clinton. He was farming at Darfield before enlisting on February 8, 1916. He had previous military experience having served four years with the Territorials. Clinton was originally assigned to the 13th Mounted Rifles, C Squadron, before being transferred to the New Zealand Cyclists Corps. The Cyclist Corps was created from recruits who were training to join the Mounted Rifles. While they were intended as mobile light infantry, the cyclists found on arrival in France in July 1916 that stationary trench warfare left them with little to do. They spent much of the war behind the lines performing tasks such as controlling traffic, laying cables and repairing trenches. Clinton initially embarked for Suez and disembarked in Egypt on June 22. With the rest of the Cyclist Corps he then went on to France where he was attached to the division at headquarters on August 18. Finally he was sent to join the Corp of Cyclists Battalion in the field on May 19. June and July were spent training and on support duties. The New Zealand cyclists, as part of the 2nd Anzac Cyclist Battalion, were involved in

the Flanders offensives of 1917. Time was spent building an 1800m support track across noman’s-land at Messines, and laying signal cables behind advancing troops at Gravenstafel and Bellevue Spur. Between August 1916 and April 1917, Clinton went on leave to England twice and spent time in hospital with shingles. He was killed in action on April 18, 1917, nine days after returning from his second trip to England. At the time the Battalion were in the Donegal Farm sector. On April 16 they had retired to a hill known as Fairy Farm which soon came under intense shelling. After a day there they returned to the top of Mt Kemel to reinforce the Mounted Regiment. According to the Regimental history: “The enemy shelling was most intense, every sort of gun and gas shell was used.” Clinton was one of seven casualties. His body was not retrieved or identified so his name is on the Messines Ridge Monument to the Missing and he is remembered on the Malvern County War Memorial. Rifleman Clement Rothery McLachlan Clement Rothery McLachlan was born at Doyleston on February 17, 1894, to Alexander and Elizabeth McLachlan. He was farming at Doyleston before enlisting on February 10, 1917. He had previous military experience having served with the Canterbury Yeomanry Cavalry for two and a half years. McLachlan was assigned to New Zealand Rifle Brigade, Reinforcements G Company, and he embarked for Devonport on June 12. He left for France, marching out to the field on October 7 and being posted to C Company, 3rd Battalion Auckland Infantry, two

days later. On January 18, 1918, he was detached to the 1st Australian Tunnelling Company. After a month with them he was sent to the 22nd Corps Reinforcement Camp on February 18. From there, he joined the 2nd Battalion, 3rd New Zealand Rifle Brigade and was posted to D company on February 24. McLachlan suffered gunshot wounds to his head and a fractured frontal bone on April 18. He died of his wounds in the field. He is buried in Englebelmer Communal Cemetery Extension, Somme, and remembered on the Ellesmere County and Doyleston war memorials, as well as the Southbridge School Roll of Honour. Private Charles Cornish Kelland Charles Cornish Kelland was born at Geraldine on February 3, 1874, to William and Mary Kelland. He and wife Amelia married in 1906 and they had two children – Annie Elizabeth May and Charles Albert. However, both his wife and son died in 1907, his son at five-weeks-old. Kelland was farming at Annat before enlisting on June 31, 1916. He had previous military experience having served for 14 months in the South African campaign with the 7th New Zealand Contingent. He had previously been rejected for service because of a varicose vein but had been operated on. Kelland was assigned to the New Zealand Expeditionary Force, 17th Reinforcements, J Company, and embarked for Devonport on November 21.

In France, he was posted to the 1st Battalion, Canterbury Regiment in the field on February 6, 1917, where he was attached to the 2nd Light Trench Mortar Battery. He was then sent to the No 2 Anzac Reinforcement Camp, perhaps to train others. It was there, on June 5, he was given field punishment number two, although his papers do not indicate why. His time at the camp over, he was reattached to the Light Trench Mortar Battery in the field on July 14. On September 25, Kelland was evacuated to hospital with an injury to his neck. He spent the next two months recuperating before returning to duty and later joining the 1st Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on January 5, 1918. Kelland was evacuated again, with a sprained knee this time, as the result of an incident which occurred when he was playing football and collided with another player in March. This time he was only out of action for a few weeks before returning to the field on April 18. On April 28, 1918, he was killed in action, aged 44. Kelland is buried in Euston Road Cemetery, Somme, and remembered on the Malvern County and Sheffield war memorials. Trooper John Withell Boag John Withell Boag was born at Brookside on June 12, 1895, to John and Mary Boag. He was working as a farm hand for his father before enlisting on May 2, 1916. He had previous military experience with the Canterbury Yeomanry Cavalry 1st Regiment. Boag was assigned to the 17th Reinforcements, New Zealand Mounted Rifles, and embarked with them for Suez, arriving on November 14. He was transferred to the New

Boag was wounded in action on January 9, 1917, at Rafah, suffering a gunshot wound to the thigh which luckily did not reach the bone. He spent the next two months recovering in hospital. It was April 8 when he returned to the brigade in the field but within three weeks, he was admitted to hospital in Deir el Balah, this time with tonsillitis. On his return to duty he was transferred to headquarters and then once again to the 1st Squadron. Boag received a gunshot wound to his left hip while serving near Beersheba on October 31. After seven weeks’ recovery, he returned to Moascar on December 23. A month later, he was transferred to the New Zealand Mounted Rifle Brigade. On April 30, 1918, Boag was wounded again and admitted to the 66 Casualty Clearing Station, dangerously ill with a gunshot wound to his left shoulder and spine. He died from his wounds on May 7, 1918, at 66th Casualty Clearing Station, aged 21. He is buried in the Jerusalem War Cemetery and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial and the Southbridge School Roll of Honour. • Selwyn Libraries welcomes your feedback or any information you can provide regarding these soldiers.

The Selwyn Sports Trust is now calling for entries in the 2015 Koru Games. After a fantastic inaugural year in 2014, this year’s South Island year 7 and 8 tournament promises to be even bigger and better. The games are being hosted between September 15-17 at various Selwyn venues. There are nine sports on offer this year; basketball, football, lawn bowls, netball, rugby sevens, swimming, table tennis, touch and volleyball. All South Island year 7 and 8 students are welcome to enter the Games. The inaugural games in 2014 had support from 29 schools, bringing over 1000 participants across the five sports. It is expected that this number will considerably increase this year. There is already interest and entries from all parts of the South Island. The tournament is focused on providing all South Island year 7 and 8 students with an opportunity to develop their

individual skills while competing for their school. There is a strong focus on playing all sports in the right spirit and a clear fair play promise is adhered to throughout the games. There is also an opportunity for willing and able volunteers to be involved. The games welcome expressions of interest from all keen officials and provide the necessary training to ensure they are fully involved and enjoy their games experience as much as the competitors. This year the Selwyn Sports Trust has also called for local schools to put their hand up as hosts for billeting. The interest of schools from further afield is often limited due to the difficulties of accommodation and the trust believes billeting is a mutually beneficial experience for both host and billeted students.

▌LOOKING ▌ BACK

CROWNING GLORY: In September of 1915, Darfield held a queen carnival to raise funds for sick and wounded soldiers. At the time it was said that everyone in the district was either taking part or looking on. A total of £3000 was raised by the events. On September 25, the final day, there was a procession three quarters of a mile long from the railway station to the domain where the queen, Miss C Jarman, was crowned. The procession was headed by the band of the Canterbury Regiment leading decorated floats with each candidate and her supporters provided a section of the procession. Nurse Sibylla Emily Maude was the Christchurch carnival queen and is shown crowning Miss Jarman. The queen candidates were Miss F McBeath of Kimberly (43,097 votes), Miss C Jarman of Darfield (77,371 votes), Miss G Knight of Racecourse Hill (62,807 votes) and Miss A Clinton of Darfield (50456 votes). • Heritage photos supplied by Selwyn Libraries.

Here in Canterbury, we are better placed than anyone to have an opinion on how the EQC scheme has worked in the wake of the series of earthquakes our region has experienced. The Government is inviting public submissions on proposed changes to the current Earthquake Commission Act, which is the legislation that governs EQC and determines the coverage of the EQC scheme. The aim of the proposed reforms is to ensure the EQC scheme remains focused on insuring homes; to resolve the difficulties experienced in Canterbury with the interaction of land and building cover; to better integrate EQC and private insurers’ claims handling processes; and to ensure the ongoing financial sustainability of the scheme. The key proposed changes are as follows: That EQC no longer provide contents insurance – this will be covered by private insurers. That EQC building cover be extended to cover any siteworks necessary to repair or reinstate the building, and access to it, helping to remove uncertainties and friction around the interaction between building and land cover. That the cap on EQC building cover be increased from $100,000 +GST to $200,000 +GST, which will help reduce the interaction between EQC and private insurers on overcap claims by about two-thirds. That land cover be limited to situations where rebuilding is not practicable, meaning homeowners

Amy Adams Selwyn MP

would continue to receive insurance for the land if their home cannot be rebuilt on its original site and they are forced to buy another home elsewhere. However, EQC would no longer provide cover for land damage that has not caused damage to the house itself. That claimants be required to lodge their EQC claim with their private insurer, reducing uncertainty for claimants. Insurers would validate the claimant’s status before forwarding the claim to EQC. That EQC maintain its role in supporting research and education about New Zealand’s natural hazards and how to reduce their impact. The review is forward-looking and will not have any impact on the handling or outcome of existing EQC claims. The Government is committed to ensuring that New Zealanders can continue to access affordable, effective natural disaster insurance – something that sets us apart from most of the rest of the world. I strongly encourage those from the Selwyn community who have an opinion on these proposals to participate in the public submission process. Submissions can be made using the submission template available at www.treasury.govt.nz/publications/reviews-consultation/eqc until 5pm on Friday, September 11.

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.

HEALTH

TAKING a month off the booze can have many potential benefits for your well-being. This month many Kiwis have taken up the challenge, signing on to be dry in July. Even making small improvements to your diet and exercise routine could see you kick-start some long-term healthy habits. Dry July NZ country manager Scott Savidge said although it was ultimately about raising funds for adult cancer services, it was also about the “personal challenge” of doing something for yourself, while helping others. Last year, the initiative raised more than $744,000 for three beneficiary cancer services. Savidge said those taking part could also help boost productivity in the workplace. “Social drinking has become so embedded,” Savidge said, “people are coming into work and it is affecting their productivity.” Going alcohol-free for the month is a great way to naturally cleanse one of your most important body organs and can give you an opportunity to think about your health and nutrition in other ways. Alcohol is processed by the liver and regular drinking keeps it functioning overtime. The liver is a naturally cleansing organ so you don’t need to follow any special diets, formulas or fasts to keep it in check, simply eat healthily and keep hydrated on fluids that don’t include alcohol. Load your body with a wide range of vegetables, fruit, lentils and legumes to help reduce the inflammation of the cells. Couple this with

extra water, low energy drinks and herbal teas and it’ll flush your blood and kidneys leaving you feeling better and more invigorated in no time.

To help this process after Dry July, cut down on alcohol the night before and add a bit of sweetness and protein to your breakfast such as a fruit smoothie, hot chocolate, sweet latte, fruit, yoghurt, honey on toast or baked beans instead of black coffee, energy drink or chocolate bar. A third reason for tiredness may be how it affects your sleep.

Don’t let a fire escape

New connection improves Burnham’s water supply Around 30 properties in Burnham have been connected to the Rolleston water supply, providing the area with a water supply with more capacity for fire-fighting and household use. The Burnham water supply was established by the Ministry of Defence in 1989 as a community water supply and services properties on the eastern side of the Main South Road. As designed the scheme had limited capacity. The move to supply Burnham from the Rolleston town supply has been planned for some time and was consulted on through the Council’s 2014/15 Annual Plan. A 1.3km pipeline connecting Burnham properties to the Rolleston supply was constructed during May and June. In July, the water source was switched over and households on the former Burnham supply now receive water from Rolleston. Selwyn District Council’s Asset Manager Water Services Murray England says the switch will provide Burnham residents with an improved water supply. “The Rolleston water supply has multiple wells and reservoirs and will provide a more secure water supply for Burnham residents.”

Property owners are reminded they need to supervise winter burn-offs to prevent them escaping.

Anyone who lights a fire may be liable for costs from damage or for firefighting. Callouts by rural fire crews have followed strong unseasonal winds recently. The risk of fire is usually lower in winter, but strong nor’ west winds can easily carry embers and start secondary fires. The following safety conditions must be followed in an open fire season:

· Check the weather before you light so that conditions will not cause your fire to spread · Do not light a fire in a nor’ west or in strong winds. Check wind and your burn on subsequent days to make sure any embers are out · Supervise the fire and have a water source nearby (such as a garden hose for small piles or a weedspray/high pressure unit for larger burns) · Take care when disposing of ashes · Do not burn within ten metres of a building, tree, hedge or other combustible material More information is set out in the Council’s Rural Fire Bylaw which must be observed when lighting outdoor fires during an open fire season. See www.selwyn.govt.nz/bylaws In Hill and High Country areas of Selwyn a permanent Restricted Fire Season is in place. A fire permit is required to light fire. You can check what rules apply where with a new online search tool at www.selwyn.govt.nz/permit For more information about rural fire phone 347 2800 or 318 8338 or visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/fire

Since last summer an additional bore has been brought into service for Rolleston with a further bore currently being developed to provide more capacity to keep up with the town’s growing population. Rolleston water supply also has back up power generators to keep operating in an emergency. Most Burnham households will pay less for water in the future. The Council recently adopted a new way of funding water services, with a district wide rate adopted for most areas which receive a Council service. Burnham ratepayers previously paid $700 per year to fund their local water supply. Properties on the Rolleston water supply (including Burnham households) pay a reduced district-wide rate of $200 as these properties also pay for part of the cost of water through water meter charges. A Burnham or Rolleston household with average water use will pay $350 per year covering a reduced district wide rate and water meter charges. A number of other communities will also benefit from reduced water rates as a result of the change to the district-wide rate including Armack Drive, Arthur’s Pass, Castle Hill, Darfield, Dunsandel, Edendale, Johnson’s Road, Jowers Road, Kirwee, Lake Coleridge, Raven Drive, Sheffield/Waddington, Southbridge, Springfield, Tai Tapu, Templeton and West Melton. Connecting water schemes together can help to reduce overall operating costs as it may reduce water treatment and testing costs. The Council is planning to look at whether more schemes can be connected. Connections between the Johnson’s and Jowers Road schemes to the West Melton supply, Armack Drive with Rolleston and the Sheffield and Darfield water supplies will be investigated in the future.

Don’t let a fire escape

New connection improves Burnham’s water supply Around 30 properties in Burnham have been connected to the Rolleston water supply, providing the area with a water supply with more capacity for fire-fighting and household use. The Burnham water supply was established by the Ministry of Defence in 1989 as a community water supply and services properties on the eastern side of the Main South Road. As designed the scheme had limited capacity. The move to supply Burnham from the Rolleston town supply has been planned for some time and was consulted on through the Council’s 2014/15 Annual Plan. A 1.3km pipeline connecting Burnham properties to the Rolleston supply was constructed during May and June. In July, the water source was switched over and households on the former Burnham supply now receive water from Rolleston. Selwyn District Council’s Asset Manager Water Services Murray England says the switch will provide Burnham residents with an improved water supply. “The Rolleston water supply has multiple wells and reservoirs and will provide a more secure water supply for Burnham residents.”

Property owners are reminded they need to supervise winter burn-offs to prevent them escaping.

Anyone who lights a fire may be liable for costs from damage or for firefighting. Callouts by rural fire crews have followed strong unseasonal winds recently. The risk of fire is usually lower in winter, but strong nor’ west winds can easily carry embers and start secondary fires. The following safety conditions must be followed in an open fire season:

· Check the weather before you light so that conditions will not cause your fire to spread · Do not light a fire in a nor’ west or in strong winds. Check wind and your burn on subsequent days to make sure any embers are out · Supervise the fire and have a water source nearby (such as a garden hose for small piles or a weedspray/high pressure unit for larger burns) · Take care when disposing of ashes · Do not burn within ten metres of a building, tree, hedge or other combustible material More information is set out in the Council’s Rural Fire Bylaw which must be observed when lighting outdoor fires during an open fire season. See www.selwyn.govt.nz/bylaws In Hill and High Country areas of Selwyn a permanent Restricted Fire Season is in place. A fire permit is required to light fire. You can check what rules apply where with a new online search tool at www.selwyn.govt.nz/permit For more information about rural fire phone 347 2800 or 318 8338 or visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/fire

Since last summer an additional bore has been brought into service for Rolleston with a further bore currently being developed to provide more capacity to keep up with the town’s growing population. Rolleston water supply also has back up power generators to keep operating in an emergency. Most Burnham households will pay less for water in the future. The Council recently adopted a new way of funding water services, with a district wide rate adopted for most areas which receive a Council service. Burnham ratepayers previously paid $700 per year to fund their local water supply. Properties on the Rolleston water supply (including Burnham households) pay a reduced district-wide rate of $200 as these properties also pay for part of the cost of water through water meter charges. A Burnham or Rolleston household with average water use will pay $350 per year covering a reduced district wide rate and water meter charges. A number of other communities will also benefit from reduced water rates as a result of the change to the district-wide rate including Armack Drive, Arthur’s Pass, Castle Hill, Darfield, Dunsandel, Edendale, Johnson’s Road, Jowers Road, Kirwee, Lake Coleridge, Raven Drive, Sheffield/Waddington, Southbridge, Springfield, Tai Tapu, Templeton and West Melton. Connecting water schemes together can help to reduce overall operating costs as it may reduce water treatment and testing costs. The Council is planning to look at whether more schemes can be connected. Connections between the Johnson’s and Jowers Road schemes to the West Melton supply, Armack Drive with Rolleston and the Sheffield and Darfield water supplies will be investigated in the future.

mSharing of majestic manta the realm of Give them the right of way and these graceful creatures will do you proud, writes Richard Moore

THE SIGNAL drum sounds to let everyone know that the mantas are in the channel. That sends a lot of people scurrying for the small boats that will take them out to watch the giant marine creatures swim by as they feed on plankton. The tiny plankton flow through a narrow gap between Drawaqa and Naviti islands and the mantas, swimming against the current, enjoy a good meal. The current can be very strong - too much to swim against for long, even with fins - so the boats drop you in an area where you can snorkel in comfort to see the mantas and then go into the deeper channel to be whisked across to where the same boats now wait. Before we enter the water the guides tell us not to chase the mantas. Stay still and they will pass by and then come around again to check you out. If you chase them you may frighten them away.

So with that in mind, and camera ready, it is over the side into a slightly choppy sea. Once the bubbles have cleared I can see a manta below me. It seems to be going gracefully but slowly. However, given that it is going against the current its obviously capable of considerable power. It is soon out of sight but hopefully there’ll be another along soon. Meanwhile, my eyes are attracted to a myriad of vividly coloured fish that teem around the coral reefs on either side of the channel. There are thousands of them, zipping around with nary a care in the world. All of a sudden I’m caught by the current. It’s fun being pushed along at a great rate of knots - I can’t swim against it so I go with the flow. Holding my camera out steadily in front it is a real buzz whooshing through schools of fish that part for you as if by communal agreement. This is way cooler than fun-park rides. Lifting my mask I can see the boats up ahead and groups of snorkellers holding on to a trailing rope to make for the boat’s ladder in an orderly manner.

FOOD Grilled beef porterhouse steak with mustard mayonnaise and broccoli salad

4 Tbsp Mayonnaise Broccoli, almond and tomato salad 1 Broccoli 2 Tomatoes 1 clove Garlic 2 Tbsp Tarragon 2 Tbsp Chives 3 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil 3 Tbsp Lemon juice 50g Slivered almonds 1 to taste Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Serves 4

Ingredients 800g Porterhouse steaks, 4 x 200g pieces 1 to drizzle Vegetable oil 1 to taste Salt and freshly ground black pepper 3 tsp Dijon mustard

Directions Heat a grill, ridged grill-pan or

frying pan. Use a sharp knife to make several cuts through the fat and slightly into the meat as this will stop it curling as it cooks. Lightly oil the steaks before putting them onto the heat. For juicy and medium rare steaks, cook them for about 7 minutes per side, turning once and seasoning with salt and pepper once you have done so. Remove from the heat, wrap loosely in foil and leave them to rest for 5 minutes. Mix the mustard and mayon-

naise, then spread across the upper side of the meat. Salad: Cook the broccoli in boiling salted water for about 4 minutes, then drain and set aside in a warm bowl. Chop and seed the tomatoes, then add to the broccoli. Chop the garlic and tarragon finely, then chop the chives into 2cm lengths. Mix the herbs with the oil, lemon juice and almonds, then gently toss through the broccoli and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm.

TIP: Resting meat There are very good reasons for leaving meat to rest. In the cooking process, the proteins in meat set, meaning that the juices all go to the middle and the outer part effectively dries out. When you rest the meat it cools just enough for those juices to be redistributed and the outside becomes moist and tender again. For a 200g piece of steak, rest it for six to 10 minutes. Leave it uncovered in a warm part of the kitchen, perhaps over a stovetop. Larger pieces, such as roasts, I rest for up to 30 minutes covered with tinfoil.

Roast chicken with stuffed green olives and lemons

Serves 4 Ingredients 1 Tbsp Olive oil 4 Chicken legs, whole ½ tsp Cinnamon ½ tsp Turmeric 1 Tbsp Liquid honey 1½ cups Chicken stock 2 Lemons, thinly sliced 3 Bay leaves 1 cup Stuffed green olives, I used garlic-stuffed queen olives Directions Heat oven to 190 deg C. Separate the chicken legs into drumsticks and thighs. Rub the pieces all over with olive oil, then with cinnamon and turmeric and season well with salt and pepper. Place the chicken in an oven pan and drizzle with liquid honey. Arrange the lemon slices over the chicken pieces. Surround the chicken pieces with the chicken stock, bay leaves and olives. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove covering and bake for a further 40 minutes until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Test by putting a sharp knife into the thickest part of the thigh to the bone if the juices run clear, then the chicken is cooked.

Their hard work is starting to pay off with some outstanding results during the last few weeks of term 2 and we will look forward to that momentum continuing during the rest of the season.

Antonio Shalfoon (Captain) Sponsored by:

The season is now well underway and the team, which is a fairly even mix of year 12 and 13 students and 1 year 11 have been working hard to be competitive in the competition.

Caleb Christey-Glare Sponsored by:

Of course like any competition that is played over the top half of the South Island there are some huge financial costs and the team would like to express their gratitude to their Major Sponsors Calcon, Graham Hill Roofing, Chapman Engineering, K.A.

GARDENING

www.igro.co.nz

Go wild with a herb garden For those happy to let herbs do their own thing, Marilyn Wightman discusses the merits of a wild-herb garden WILD-HERB gardens belong to those folk with a relaxed attitude to the garden; those who prefer to harvest and enjoy the benefits of tasty herbs while allowing plants to generate their own, natural style of control. While a wild-herb patch may be perceived as ‘untidy’ to some, this garden style is similar to environmental ecosystems, biological farming or permaculture gardening practice. It incorporates some of their fundamentals, such as ensuring green cover on the ground. Prolific annual and biennial herbs can play a major role here. Most herbs have attractive flowers that encourage bees and insects to the garden. Once pollinated, the flower head matures and sets the seed of the next generation. Allowing such herbs to self-seed and colonise an area of ground suppresses weed growth, which makes garden maintenance easier. Flower stalks, once flowering has finished, may have to be retained for another four to six weeks to allow seed to set, mature and be released onto the ground to start the herb’s cycle all over again. Some may need temporary staking to keep them upright. Wind, insects and rain all help with seed distribution. Herbs such as pansies, nasturtiums and feverfew

COLONISE: Many herbs have attractive flowers such as these chives (left). Herbs also made good ground cover. are low-growing so make good options for ground cover. Where crops are seasonally rotated, there are many biennial herbs to grow and fill empty spaces in the garden. As with annual herbs, biennial herbs germinate readily from seed. The flavour of biennial culinary herbs is usually sweeter in their first year of growth. Many will die down for a season and then re-emerge to form a flowering stalk. When the seeds mature, the biennial herb will die

and need removing. Biennial herbs tend to grow from 50cm to over a 1m in mature height, making them space fillers around the garden. With carefully coordinated planning there can be both winter-flowering biennials, such as herb alexander, and spring-flowering biennials, such as foxglove and parsley, in one patch. Taller summer-flowering annuals include borage, sweet annie and sunflowers. Perennial herbs that grow in a wild area include all the

culinary herbs such as rosemary, sage, thyme, marjoram and lemon balm. Plant these herbs near the kitchen and food preparation area. Some gardeners feel it necessary to maintain an orderly herb garden, keeping it as tidy as possible. They enjoy the satisfaction of controlling their part of the world by retaining, curbing and regulating the poor herbs by utter domination! As soon as flowers fade, out come the secateurs and snip, snip snip,

the herbs are reduced to a smaller, neater form. But all those seeds get removed, too. For those who cannot afford to employ a gardener or are too ‘time poor’ to devote the hours they feel their garden requires, a wild-herb garden may be the answer. Wildherb gardening is about enjoying the marvels that nature provides while allowing providence to shape and care for your patch of the world. •Turn to page 28

gardening without guesswork I have a clematis “Powder Blue”,” Large flowered, spring and summer flowering. Hardy” (10 years old). Although growing very well, it refuses to give me more than 4 flowers a season. I have many other clematis that flower profusely and am wondering what will get results with this one. I have tried Potash, good compost and fertilizers.

Question:

Large flowered clematis have to be pruned in the spring to encourage flowering. There are two methods that are used depending on which type of large flowering clematis that they belong. Some clematis respond to being cut back almost to ground level each spring and give good flowering throughout the growing season. Others are better pruned back more lightly to 2-3 good buds on branches of a strong stem coming from the crown of the plant. As you have not mentioned whether you have pruned the plant or not, try one of the pruning methods mentioned above. If you have pruned them, try the other method to see if that makes a difference. If the plant is in too much shade it will grow well but may not flower very well so there are a few things to consider to help the plant. If you need more information about pruning, please let us know!

How to be a wild-herb gardener

for music

•From page 27

• Resist the temptation to cut flowers off as soon as they fade. • Retain flowering stalks long enough for the seed to mature. • If necessary, prop up seed heads with bamboo stakes to ensure the seed matures and drops. • Take dried and mature seeds from the stalk and sprinkle it somewhere else. • Keep pulling out the unwanted plants (weeds). • Lend nature a hand by moving self-seeded herbs to new places to let them grow and colonise anew. • When there are too many new ‘babies’, give some away. • Allow natural cross-pollination. It can result in new varieties of herbs. (Lavenders and mints readily cross-pollinate.) • Spent and dying foliage from annual and biennial herbs is easily removed and composted. • Join a heritage-seed group so your surplus seeds can be exchanged.

Other herbs to use in your ‘wild-herb garden’

Sage flowers

Annuals: poppies, forgetme-not, sweet Annie, German chamomile, rocket, spring beauty, honeywort. Biennials: salsify, caraway, angelica, fuller’s teasel, linen flax, cinquefoil, weld, withania, herb Alexander, foxglove, feverfew, campion, cress. Perennials: violets, comfrey, yarrow, chives (along with others of the onion family), calamint, hyssop, plantain, salad burnet, marshmallow, flowering sages, lavender, alpine strawberry, mint, santolina.

natural resources for the future.” The survey was developed in collaboration with subject matter experts and given a thorough test drive with a group of rural decision makers last month. “It’s good to find that others are interested in the choices and decisions we are faced with. This survey really got me thinking about things and in the end, I actually enjoyed doing it,” Mid-Canterbury Federated Farmers Grain and Seed chair Joanne Burke said. To take part in the survey, go to the Landcare Research website. The information provided will be anonymous and results reported in a way that individuals are not identifiable. For the first 3000 responses, Landcare Research will donate $10 to the Westpac Chopper Appeal, CanTeen, Maori Women’s Welfare League or Federated Farmers Adverse Events Trust – whatever one the participants choose. Everyone who takes part in the survey will be in the draw to win one of five $500 Prezzy cards.

is a fortnightly feature, with up to date information on the latest farm technology, trends and local farming news that impacts Selwyn and Canterbury rural residents.

Pike Brown said the survey aimed to help policy makers, researchers and industry groups better understand the realities of how land management decisions are made at an operational level. The survey, which takes about 20 minutes to complete, covers the dairy, sheep, beef, deer, pigs and other livestock industry through to arable, horticulture and wine-growing sector. “This survey is quite different from other surveys that farmers, growers and foresters typically receive. There are a lot of thought-provoking questions on topics such as new technologies, farming goals, and plans for the future,” Dr Brown said. “It focuses on how and what farmers are thinking, rather than counting the number of sheep they have. The results of the survey will provide fine-scale information about what’s happening in the primary sector. This will allow land owners, policy makers and primary sector bodies to make better decisions about how to ensure economic productivity while sustaining

NZX milk powder

futures suggest dairy prices slide will extend

The price for New Zealand’s key dairy export, whole milk powder, may drop further at this week’s GlobalDairyTrade auction as the country starts to ramp up production amid a global glut in milk supply.

T

he current July whole milk powder futures contract last traded on the NZX at US$1910 a tonne. Because the price is an average of two fortnightly auctions and the contract was

priced at US$2000 a tonne in the first week of July’s auction, traders see a decline of 10 per cent to US$1800 a tonne this week. The longer-dated whole milk powder futures contracts are all trading at a discount to the

for decade-low rural confidence levels, deteriorating business confidence and are firmly on the radar of the Reserve Bank which has begun cutting interest rates to bolster slowing growth. “It’s going to put more pressure on the Reserve Bank to ease,” Mr Brunel said. Traders are pricing in a 96 per cent chance the Reserve Bank will cut the benchmark interest rate at this month’s meeting, according to the Overnight Index Swap curve. Some economists are forecasting three further interest rate cuts this year, which would fully reverse the central bank’s tightening in policy last year when it raised interest rates by a percentage point. Weak dairy prices have prompted analysts to pull back their expectations for Fonterra Cooperative Group’s payout to farmers this season, with most forecasts now sitting below the dairy exporter’s $5.25 per kilogram of milk solids. Market expectations range between $4.50/kgMS and $5.40/kgMS.

GDT, suggesting traders expect prices to fall. Dairy prices have remained lower for longer amid higher global supplies in New Zealand, Europe and the US, weak demand in China and an import ban in Russia. New Zealand production is rising, heading into the country’s peak supply period in October, while US farmers are reportedly dumping milk into holes used for livestock manure and the European Union has ended its quota limits. “It’s pretty negative, there’s a lot of selling in the futures and there’s not much buying – this market looks completely stuffed,” OMF financial markets director Nigel Brunel said. “Whole milk is looking to be down another thumper, and then it gets worse because the volume starts to step up again as we get into August. There is just a gap between what is being produced and what is being consumed.” Weaker dairy prices are weighing on New Zealand’s economy, cited as a reason

Commodore Redline popular choice IT’S BUSINESS as usual for Holden in Australia and New Zealand. Even though the Commodore is nearing the end of production in Australia, new models just keep on arriving and, as they do, the level of enhancement just keeps on rising. The latest to come my way for evaluation was a Commodore Redline, a sportier version of the SS V, complete with 6-litre V8 engine. The Commodore has had some revisions for 2015, they aren’t major but it gets little tweaks here and there which have improved its driveability. Notably, the steering has been revised to enhance on-centre feel and precision. It also gets an upgraded reversing camera which guides the driver during that process. According to Holden, the V8 engine option accounts for 20 per cent of Commodore sales with 10 per cent being Redline cars. That being the case, the Redline’s $74,490 price tag would seem to be quite attractive, and for those who select one as a vehicle of choice, get a true sporty/luxury package, one which rivals historical big car manufacturers, especially when you take into account build quality. Under the bonnet sits the United States-sourced V8 engine,

Developing a substantial 260kW and 517Nm, there is strength right through the rev range, it is an engine that just keeps on giving, it has brute force yet never gives an indication that it is struggling. Making any big V8 breathe freely at the top end has always been a nightmare for the induction engineers, but this engine has been developed well over the years, it isn’t new, but it is right up there in terms of refinement. In traditional Commodore fashion, drive is channelled to the rear wheels through a six-speed, paddle-shift automatic transmission. It too, is a beauty in terms of shift quality, and it amazes me how well it hauls in the engine’s strong torque flow without noticeable strain.

Monkeys and Munchkins Preschool & Nursery

L

arge grounds and space for children to run, play, discover and feel free are essential for child development and are important factors to consider when selecting a preschool. Located in the beautiful township of Tai Tapu is Monkeys and Munchkins. It has a naturally rustic setting in its outdoor environment with large play areas for children to explore. Both the outdoor areas provide age appropriate equipment such as a large raised fort, huge sandpits, bike tracks and playhouses and there is a focus on sustainability with a garden where the children are encouraged to plant and grow their own vegetables. Here the emphasis is on fostering each child’s physical, social, intellectual and emotional development. Monkeys and Munchkins is well-resourced providing an engaging curriculum that is specifically targeted to each child’s emotional and personal needs and interests while a low child to teacher ratio ensures a positive relationship between the child and their primary caregiver. At Monkeys and Munchkins children develop a lifelong love of learning. Their specialised programme is further enhanced with different activities such as weekly Thursday music classes run by a professional music teacher. The children sing, dance, move and play music in classes that allow each child’s natural love of song and dance to be tapped into, encouraging their innate musical skills. “Parents often comment on the warm homely feel the centre has,” says Centre Manager, Emma Aker. The Transition to School programme for all children four years or over is run by a primary trained teacher that prepares each preschool child with subjects such as pre-reading, writing skills, numeracy, problem solving, ICT, dance, music, science and geography. Monkeys and Munchkins provides a friendly, safe and nurturing atmosphere, supported by committed and highly trained staff who understand the importance of assisting parents with their needs. The preschool offers 20 hours ECE subsidy for children over three years of age as well as a daily optional extra of a healthy, nutritious home cooked meal. Monkeys and Munchkins Preschool & Nursery Ltd is privately and locally owned and operated. It is conveniently located in School Road opposite Tai Tapu Primary School; open 7.30am-5.30pm each weekday, making it convenient for local families as well as families living on the peninsula, to drop off and collect their children on the way to and from work. To find out more about Monkeys and Munchkins, feel free to call Emma, the Centre Manager on 03 329 6507 or email: emma@monkeysandmunchkins.co.nz.

ENERGY EFFICIENT HOME New homes are usually warm and economic to heat yet energy efficiency advisors at Community Energy Action Charitable Trust (CEA) have found this is not always the case.

C

EA have traditionally carried out energy audits on existing homes. More recently, they have been receiving an increasing number of calls from owners of newer homes who find their houses cold and costly to heat. “Most homes built today are more energy efficient than those of the last century however, new houses are still being built in ways that make them less energy efficient than they could be,” says Caroline Shone, chief executive of CEA. “The owners do not realise that it can be potentially costly when the end result is a house that is uneconomic to keep warm.” Areas to address when looking to increase

energy efficiency are the: • Design and orientation of the house so it captures the best of the elements which can have a big impact on heating needs. • Insulation as the minimum building code may not allow for the amount of insulation desired and adding more may need to be incorporated into the house design. • Double glazing of windows and doors as not all are made equal for there are different types and combinations of frames and glass. • Hot water heating cylinder which should be able to take advantage of cheaper night rates for electricity.

See website for details

Design Well Check advisor Michael Begg with homeowner Paul Marabos.

• Heat pumps as these vary in energy efficiency and should be sited correctly for best heat. • Ventilation as better insulation makes for more air-tight houses that need more thought put into how to ventilate them. • Lighting – downlights, while popular, can make insulation less effective. • Right curtains and track types that can improve energy efficiency even when there are double-glazed windows. • Laundry where energy efficiency is more than an energy efficient washing machine; an example being the facility to run cold water washes.

• Garages, where internal access can be a source of heat loss, can be improved with an external rather than internal door type between the garage and the house, or even insulation of the garage and garage door. To ensure a warm and energy efficient new home, seek advice from experts such as CEA at the initial house design stage. They can do a ‘Design Well Check’ so energy efficient options are incorporated into the home before it is built, which is the most economical time to do so.
