Water scheme asks for another $8 million BY TOM DOUDNEY Selwyn residents may be asked to weigh in on whether Central Plains Water should get another $8 million loan. CPW had requested the money in an Annual Plan submission to assist with the funding of design and construction-ready work for stage two of the $385 million irrigation scheme.

Dressed up for Lincoln tea party

Robyn and Mark Wilson of Lincoln were among about 150 costumed people to attend a ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party’ at the Lincoln Baptist Church on Saturday. The charity event raised $7453 for Hagar, an international organisation dedicated to restoring the lives of human rights abuses. The afternoon’s entertainment included music, a silent auction and prizes.

The request comes at a time of financial uncertainty for the dairy industry with Fonterra having slashed its milk price forecast to $3.85 per kilogram in the face of falling global demand. A district council report for tomorrow’s meeting has recommended holding public consultation on the matter. The report identified a lack of farmer uptake of the scheme as one

Crombie said falling dairy prices were no reason to be concerned about the scheme’s finances. “One of the conditions before we could draw down the loan would be that we could prove sufficient uptake. So we would be going back to our shareholders and confirming in the second half of this year that they do still want to do this.”

•From page 1 Mr Crombie said that stages two and three of the scheme would largely not be servicing dairy farmers but would be irrigating cropping, sheep and beef farming land instead. CPW has already received more than $5.4 million in loans from the district council, all of which have been repaid. CPW’s water and development rights, and the right to use its already completed intake and headrace infrastructure, have been offered as security in the case of a default. Stage two will introduce another 37,000ha of land to irrigation via an expanded canal network. When the third and final stage is complete, it will be irrigating 60,000ha of land between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers. The $8 million would be addition to an already confirmed $3.7 million and requested further $5 million from the Ministry of Primary Industries, as well as $4 million of CPW’s own funds. The report recommended that consultation remain open for four weeks, wrapping up on October 2. Submissions would be considered in a district council meeting on October 28 with the first $3 million installment of the loan, if approved, to be paid out late this year. A 2014 report prepared for CPW by Dr Caroline Mary

BY TOM DOUDNEY

CARVED UP: Stage one of the Central Plains Water scheme has already made its mark on the landscape. Now an $8 million loan is being sought for stage two. Saunders found that the scheme would provide $268 million in additional revenue and 849 fulltime equivalent jobs in Canterbury by 2020. Mayor Kelvin Coe would not be drawn on whether he would support loaning the $8 million, saying only that he looked forward to taking part in the debate at tomorrow’s meeting. “I think we have done a pretty

good job of evaluating the risks,” he said, referring to the district council report. •The Central Plains Water scheme is a finalist in the Champion Canterbury Business Awards. The scheme, which will see 60,000ha of Selwyn farmland irrigated, was nominated in the infrastructure and trades category. Winners will be announced at a ceremony and dinner on September 16.

A new Darfield bottle store has been approved in spite of opposition from health authorities. Thirsty Liquor Darfield’s liquor licence application has been approved by the Selwyn District Licensing Committee. The licence had been opposed by Canterbury medical officer of health Dr Alistair Humphreys who argued that the density of off-licences would be too high at one for every 660 people in Darfield. He was also concerned about the proximity to schools and childcare centres. The store, expected to open in November, is owned by Michael Brown who also runs the Waimak Tavern, south of Kaiapoi, and MacKenzies Hotel in Christchurch. Mr Brown said he would be serving the whole Malvern area, not just Darfield, and therefore just looking at the density of outlets in the town itself did not make sense. Police testified that Darfield had no problems with alcohol related crime and they had no objections to the licence being granted.

Supermarket not part of shopping centre BY TOM DOUDNEY It appears a supermarket may not be part of a scaled back shopping centre planned for West Melton. A new company has taken over development of the 8300 sq m site on Weedons Ross Rd, across from West Melton School, and plans have been reduced from a two storey to a one storey design. Supermarket chain Progressive Enterprises says it won’t be involved. James Lloyd Developments has an option to buy the land and director Tony Hickman said the company was expecting to start work on the site within the next few weeks. The original developers, Robin and Jackie Butt, had initially hoped

to open the centre in late 2014. However, a higher build cost than initially envisaged and a key investor pulling out have left it in limbo since then. A Progressive Enterprises supermarket had previously been touted as the anchor tenant by the Butts but Countdown general manager of property Adrian Walker said the chain had no plans to be part of the centre. A spokeswoman for rival chain Foodstuffs said it also would not locate there. Mr Hickman would not reveal how much the development was expected to cost. However, he did say the top storey, which was to have contained commercial offices, had been removed from the plans to reduce

the price and make the development feasible as there was not enough demand for office space in West Melton. “It just wasn’t viable for the area at this time. What is needed at the moment is a retail shopping centre. Offices could probably come in at a later date, somewhere else.” All the resource consents had been approved, meaning the biggest hurdle was out of the way, Mr Hickman said. “It has been a long wait for [local people] but we are going to be able to make it work and make a start so that’s positive for the West Melton community.” When asked why he wouldn’t divulge costs, Mr Hickman said the company preferred to “just keep our build cost to ourselves.

“We have made the project happen out there by doing a bit of a redesign and gone from there, so all I can really say is the project is going to go ahead.” The last cost estimate released by the Butts was $8 million but after citing the rising costs of development as an obstacle to the centre’s progress they declined to release further estimates. Mr Hickman said it was too early to know what the expected timeline for completion and opening of the centre would be but the company was still in the process of talking to prospective tenants. It was early days and he didn’t know how many of the original tenants lined up by the Butts would come on board.

HISTORY: The Regimental History Centre is currently based in a 105 year old historic brick building at Burnham Military Camp, but the building has earthquake damage.

DRUMMER: Burnham Regimental History Centre chairman David Clarkson with their historic bass drum, which was used at more than 20 battles in World War 1 and 2.

Burnham could lose war BY GABRIELLE STUART

A BASS drum which saw action on more than 20 battlefields during World War 1 and 2 could be lost to Canterbury. It is one of hundreds of war relics which could go if the Burnham Regimental History Centre has to close. The drum survived some of the bloodiest battles of World War 1 including Gallipoli, The Somme, Flanders and Passchendaele. It was brought back after the war but used again during World War 2 at battles in Europe and North Af-

rica, including the battles of Crete, El Alamein and Cassino. And it wasn’t only used as a drum. On the battlefield at Gallipoli soldiers used the drum as a makeshift carrier for medical supplies, filling it with bandages as they treated the wounded. Trust chairman David Clarkson said the drum was just one of hundreds of stories, photos and pieces of memorabilia from Canterbury soldiers preserved at the centre. The centre is currently based in a 105-year-old historic brick building at Burnham Military Camp. But the building was damaged

in the earthquakes, and it is not yet known if it will be able to be repaired. If it is demolished and the group is unable to find a new building, they could have to shut the centre. It’s likely the collections would then be split up and sent to the National Army Museum in Waiouru or Te Papa in Wellington. Mr Clarkson said the group was working to try to find a new base. “It is essential we maintain something like this in Canterbury, or all this history will be lost,” he said. But it is proving difficult, because they need such a large space to display everything.

There are weapons and uniforms from 100 years ago at the centre, as well as life-size displays and hundreds of photographs and stories. The relics include Canterbury insignia embroidered by captured Turkish soldiers in World War 1. They also have equipment from early Canterbury mounted regiments, old documents and records, and lanterns and other pieces soldiers brought home from the trenches. Mr Clarkson said about 200-250 sq m of floor space would be needed to display everything. The group has already approached Ngai Tahu and the Air

Force Museum in Wigram about relocating there, but neither had the space. They are working with the Christchurch Arts Centre to look at possibilities there, and hope to find out more soon. The centre is currently run by five volunteers, all former soldiers who have fought with Canterbury regiments. Most of the volunteers are in their 70s or 80s, and Mr Clarkson hoped relocating to the city might make it easier to attract more volunteers. He said it would also give the public easier access to the museum.

Call for urgent planning of health services BY FRASER WALKER-PEARCE AND TOM DOUDNEY

ARMOURY: Weapons on display at the centre range from modern-day pieces to some used before World War 1. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

relics Because of security at Burnham, people need to organise beforehand if they want to visit. The group is also working to find out more about the history of the Gallipoli drum. Lines of names have been scratched on the inside of the drum, but it is not known if they were names of people who played it, or of other soldiers. It will be sent away this week to a police forensics laboratory, where equipment will be used to magnify and try to identify some of the names on it. They hope the information can be used to track down people who might know more about its history.

The drum was used on battlefields including: World War 1 Suez Canal – from February 1915 Gallipoli – from April 1915 Somme – from September 1916 Messines – from February 1917 Passchendaele – from October 1917 Hindenburg – from September 1918 World War 2 Greece – from March 1941 Crete – from April 1941 Sidi Rezegh – from November 1941 Minquair Quaim – from May 1942 El Alamein – from June 1942 Orsogna – from December 1943 Cassino – from January 1944

The Canterbury District Health Board is being asked to show more urgency in planning health services for Selwyn’s booming population. District councillor Grant Miller (right) said he remained frustrated by the slow progress on planning for the future. “Looking at the services we currently have, we need more, just plainly because there has been explosive growth around Selwyn, particularly in Lincoln and Rolleston.” He appreciated that the CDHB had had its hands full in Christchurch after the earthquakes. “But we also have needs in Selwyn.” Cr Miller said the district council had been meeting with the CDHB for some time discussing how to plan for Selwyn’s future but a cohesive plan did not seem close. Along with a need for more doctors’ clinics, Selwyn’s demography showed a need for more social services too. “The general demographic of Selwyn is showing the two extremes of age. For example,

22 per cent of the population is under 12, so these social services will become very important in the coming years. For this part of the community, they’re getting into that stage where hospitals, mental, sexual – all of those health services are needed.” A range of services could be co-located in a single building – a hub concept CDHB had previously proposed for Selwyn. Selwyn’s current population is estimated to be 51,000. It grew 32.6 per cent between the 2006 and 2013 census. That is expected to rise to 75,000 by 2030, with 80 per cent of the growth to take place in the urban areas. Cr Miller said that land was available to develop health facilities on, but it was being snapped up quickly. “There is land available around the Selwyn District Council head office. Rolleston School is very keen to expand, but we could also put in a doc-

tor’s, or another service; so we need to weigh up the greater good of Selwyn.” CDHB planning and funding team leader Dr Greg Hamilton said everyone wanted to see a healthcare model which provided better care for the people of Selwyn but careful consideration needed to be given to how any future developments would complement existing practices. “We need to be clear on what this model of care will look like before any infrastructure and facilities work is considered. It is important that future developments are carefully worked through to ensure they support this model and make best use of limited resources.” Cr Miller said another concern for Selwyn residents was the redevelopment of Christchurch Hospital which could see some services being temporarily moved to Burwood Hospital, making the trip into Christchurch for Selwyn locals even further.

Animal road crash stats revealed BY TOM DOUDNEY There have been 35 crashes involving animals on Selwyn roads since 2010. Police released the figures for Canterbury along with a map showing their locations. These included the fatal crash that killed Lincoln woman Diana Clair Morton on Birchs Rd in 2013. Morton was driving at night with her husband when their car struck a horse which had got loose and wandered onto the road. There were also four other crashes involving minor injuries and the rest were without injury. Across Canterbury, there were 177 reported crashes involving animals, including two fatal and five involving serious injuries. By far the biggest cause was straying animals – 142 cases. The others involved 18 cases of a pet playing or escaping onto the road, seven of a farm animal which was being attended to when the crash happened, eight involving wild animals and two ‘unknown.’ The equivalent breakdown for Selwyn was not released. Senior Sergeant Pete Stills released the figures two weeks after a Selwyn police officer struck a cow while driving on Clinton Rd, near Darfield. An investigation into the incident has been completed but a formal determination is yet to be made. However, Senior Sergeant Stills said preliminary findings

‘Freakish’ event leads to car leaving road BY TOM DOUDNEY

A “freakish” weather event led to a car carrying a Leeston man and his four children skidding off the road and crashing through a fence. The family were driving from Leeston to Dunsandel along Hanmer Rd, Brookside, at about 9pm on Friday when they turned a corner and found the road ahead littered with about 5cm of hail. The car slid off the road, went through a fence and ended up in some bushes. Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said the family were lucky to have been uninjured in the crash which left their car too badly damaged to drive. The children were aged two, three, five and seven. Senior Sergeant Stills said it appeared a band of intense hail only about 100m wide had swept up from the south. The road before the corner had been completely free of hail and there were no warning signs of what lay ahead. He called it a “freakish” occurance. “We can talk about driving to the conditions but the piece of road he was on was fine and then it changed unexpectedly.”

DANGER: The locations of crashes involving animals in Canterbury, from 2010 until the present. animals out onto the road. The results could be tragic when animals roamed free. “They have been fatal several times that I have witnessed. A dark-coloured animal like a cow or a horse can be very hard to see at night.”

Paradise Found

Jan Chaffey was born in the ‘south of the South Island’. She grew up with a great love of wild places and native plants. She is a dedicated environmentalist with a background in fine arts and botany.Jan graduated from the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts in the 1950s and became a set designer with New Zealand Players Theatre Trust in Wellington. Here she enjoyed the opportunity to work in mixed media on a large scale, something she is again realizing, as she moves to her biggest canvases to date, in ‘Exilio’ debuting at Little River Gallery. Exilio is an exploration and celebration of New Zealand’s eight native kowhai. The series brings together a number of her interests – calligraphy, the painted narrative, abstract expressionism, and botany. Working in goache on paper and oil on canvas, Jan’s latest series is bold and contemporary. Her painterly style is gestural and spontaneous and owes something to William de Kooning and Mark Tobey. Her real message, however, is about the fragility of our native flora and fauna and the importance of its preservation. She calls New Zealand ‘our inherited environment’ - something to be respected and treasured. Her paintings are a forum for raising awareness about the beauty and vulnerability of nature. Through the medium of painting, using visual essays, Jan has helped to increase awareness about the beauty and fragility of New Zealand’s flora and fauna. Her passion for each is evident in every painting. Always an animated painter, Jan’s work has become increasingly free. She strives to rise above merely detailing the scientific specimen, to capture the essence of her botanical subject matter. And yet, every brushstroke represents discipline and restraint. Jan’s workbooks reveal her process is lengthy, considered, deliberate and measured. In this series of kowhai paintings, the versatility and richness of this hardy native is evoked in liberal brushstrokes and rich colour. In both oil and goache, on small and large scale, the character of this quintessential native is realized anew. Jan has been exhibiting throughout the South Island for over 30 years. Her representative galleries have included Salamander and CoCA. This is her first show at Little River Gallery. Over the past 25 years she has created a native plant collection at home. She has also initiated the replanting of a reserve area on the hills behind Tai Tapu, using locally collected seeds. It is part of her commitment to raising awareness within the local community about the importance of protecting our flora and fauna. Jan Chaffey

Soldiers of Selwyn

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

Illness dogged soldiers 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. Trooper George Hansen George Hansen was born at Killinchy on August 5, 1891, to Charles and Rachel Hansen. He helped out on his father’s farm for some years prior to his enlistment on November 11, 1916. He was one of four brothers to serve in the war. Hansen was assigned to the 12th Reinforcements, Wellington Infantry Battalion, J Company, and embarked for Suez on May 6, 1916. In Egypt, he was posted to the New Zealand Mounted Training Regiment at Tel el Kebir on July 27, 1916, and the same day transferred to the Imperial Camel Corps. Hansen was posted to Abbassia on July 30, 1916. He served with the Camel Corps for close to a year before being transferred to the New Zealand Mounted Machine Gun Squadron on July 21, 1918. He was present at the capture of Jerusalem and took part in most of the subsequent fighting. However, like many others, he was exposed to malaria-carrying

mosquitos and on October 6, he was sent to hospital with a fever. This may have been malaria but he could also have been suffering from influenza which was also prevalent. In October 1918, the Egyptian Expeditionary Force in Palestine experienced simultaneous epidemics of falciparum malaria and influenza during the cavalry campaign that defeated the Turkish Army. Hansen died on October 11, 1918, aged 28, while being evacuated by field ambulance. He is buried in the Haifa War Cemetery and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Leeston plaque. Private Thomas Guy Thomas Guy was born at Annat on March 25, 1886, to John and Annie Guy. He married Jessie Winifred Campbell at Amberly on January 19, 1916, and they had one child, Gladys Mary. Guy was working a labourer at Springfield before enlisting on December 5, 1917. He had previous military experience with the Malvern Mounted Rifles. He was assigned to the 24th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Regiment, C Company, and embarked aboard the Pakeha from

Wellington on April 14. However, the ship returned and he re-embarked for Devonport on April 26. In France, Guy joined the 1st Battalion and was posted to the 13th Company on September 16. On April 5, he suffered a gunshot wound to his left arm and was evacuated to England where he was treated in hospital at Walton on Thames. On September 3, after his recovery, instead of being sent to France, Guy was posted to Larkhill Camp, not far from Stonehenge on the Salisbury Plain. It was an Infantry training camp. He left for France on September 29 and joined the Canterbury Infantry Battalion in the field on October 7. However, on October 15, he was sent to No 3 Casualty clearing station where he died of pneumonia the next day, aged 32. Guy is buried in the RocquignyEquancourt Road British Cemetery and remembered on the Malvern County and Sheffield war memorials. Trooper William Henderson William Henderson was born at Halkett on March 3, 1885, to Gilbert and Margaret Henderson. He was farming at Halkett before enlisting on November 17, 1916. He had previous military experience having served with the Waimakariri Mounted Rifles. Henderson was assigned to the 29th Reinforcements, Mounted Rifles Brigade and promoted to Corporal on January 28. On November 13, 1917, he embarked for Suez. He was sent immediately to Moascar where he relinquished his

rank of Corporal and was posted to the Imperial Camel Corps on January 5, 1918. Henderson joined the Corps in the field on February 15 and served with them for six months until being transferred to the 2nd Mounted Machine Gun Squadron on July 31, 1918. The Machine-Gun Squadron was a sub-unit of the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade during the war, serving with them in the Sinai and Palestine Campaign from 1916 to 1918. On October 3, an accident resulted in Henderson received gunshot wounds to the neck. Later investigation showed that the wound was caused by a revolver bullet from the gun of one Sergeant Middleton. The gun had gone off unexpectedly. He was admitted to the French Hospital in Damascus on October 4, where he died of his wounds on October 19. Henderson is buried in the Damascus Commonwealth War Cemetery and remembered on a memorial at Halkett Presbyterian Church, as well as on the Southbridge School Roll of Honour. Bombardier Leonard Talbot Russell Leonard Talbot Russell was born at Brookside on September 10, 1892, to Alfred and Mary Russell. He was a keen rugby player and for several seasons played halfback for the Irwell Club and also took part in representative matches. He played in the seven-a-side tournaments and was a member of the team which won the senior competition the last season before his departure for the front. Russell was managing his mother’s farm before enlisting on August, 25, 1915, and being assigned to the 8th Reinforcements, Canterbury Mounted Rifles. He embarked for Suez on November 13.

He was stationed at Zeitoun for his first few months in Egypt, until March 25, 1916, when he was transferred from the Canterbury Mounted Rifles to the 12 Battery, NZ Field Artillery. Along with many others he was sent to France, on April 7, where he was assigned to the 3rd Brigade, New Zealand Field Artillery. Information on Russell’s service over the next two years is limited, until April 1, 1918, when he was appointed Acting Bombardier. A few days later, he was wounded but remained with his unit. On August 6, he was detached to the 3rd Army Rest Camp in the field for a short time on August 20. He was promoted to Bombardier to complete the establishment not long after his return on August 28. On October 20, Russell suffered a gunshot wound to his head, resulting in a fractured skull. At the time, the artillery were firing in support of the 42nd Division, which attacked from Briastre as part of the ongoing assault on the Hindenberg Line. Russell died on the same day at the 3rd Canadian Casualty Clearing Station. He is buried in the RocquignyEquancourt Road British Cemetery, Manancourt, and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial. Private Frank Lewis Berg Frank Lewis Berg was born at Devonport, Tasmania, on August 26, 1896, to Isaac and Elizabeth Sarah Berg. The family had arrived in New Zealand around 1911. He was working as a labourer at Greendale before enlisting on September 19, 1916. He had previous military service with the Territorials although he did not state which unit.

Soldiers of Selwyn www.selwynlibrary.co.nz

till the end of war Berg was assigned to 21st Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company, and embarked for Devonport on January 19, 1917. In England, he joined the 1st Battalion, Canterbury Infantry Regiment before leaving for France. He joined them in the field on June 19, 1917. Berg was sent to hospital sick on December 26, suffering from anaemia, but rejoined his unit on January 12, 1918. He fought with the regiment through the campaigns of that year until being killed in action, aged 22, on October 23, 1918. Berg was part of the attack on the little hamlet of Pont-àPierres, where the Beaudignies road crosses the river. Although progress was astonishingly rapid and successful, at the outset they had met somewhat severe artillery fire and a considerable volume of machine gun and rifle fire. He may have been a casualty of this gunfire. He is buried in the Romeries Communal Cemetery Extension, France, and remembered on the Malvern County, Greendale and Sheffield war memorials. Corporal William George Henry Jones William George Henry Jones was born on August 10, 1881, to George Henry and Ada Emma Jane. He was working as a labourer at Leeston before enlisting on June 27, 1916. Jones was a widower, having married Elizabeth Guill in Dunedin on April 24, 1909, in a Salvation Army service. They had two children - Margaret Ada, born 1910, and Myrtle Elizabeth, born 1912. She died on March 3, 1916, a few months before Jones enlisted. He had previous military experience with Ellesmere Mounted Rifles.

Jones was assigned to the 18th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company, and was promoted to Lance Corporal in camp. He embarked for Plymouth on October 11. As was usual, he reverted to the rank of private in England. He was posted to the Canterbury Infantry Regiment, 13th Company, on April 2, 1917, and left for France two months later. On October 24, he was promoted to Lance Corporal and a month later to Corporal on November 13. Jones was wounded in action on December 16, suffering a shrapnel wound to his left arm, and taken to the No 22 General Hospital at Camiers. After spending Christmas there he was evacuated to the 2nd NZ General Hospital at Walton upon Thames in England on December 29. It was May 19, 1918, before he returned to the field in France, joining the No 2 Entrenching Battalion. While serving with them he was appointed temporary sergeant. He was then transferred to the Canterbury Infantry Regiment, 2nd Battalion and posted to 13th Company. Jones was wounded in action on October 5, suffering wounds to his abdomen and buttock. The New Zealand Division was involved in an attack on the Hindenburg Line in the area around Bapaume and Cambrai. He died, aged 37, at No 29 Casualty clearing station on October 22, 1918. Jones is buried in the Grevillers British Cemetery and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Leeston plaque.

William Thomas Buckner William Thomas Buckner was born at Ashburton on August 2, 1893, to Thomas and Emily Henrietta Buckner. He was working as a teamster in Waddington before enlisting on October 16, 1916. He had served two month military training with territorials. Buckner was assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade Reinforcements H Company and embarked for Devonport on March 14, 1917. While at sea he was hospitalised with measles. In France, he was posted to A company in the field on July 11. He served with them throughout 1917, including the disastrous battle of Passchendaele. In January, 1918, he was sent to 22nd General Hospital in Camiers with trench foot. It was March 26 before he was able to rejoin the Rifle Brigade, although he appears not to have been posted back to the field. On October 8, at Etaples, Buckner went before the standing Medical Board to review his condition. The medical exam noted that he was pale, debilitated with a persistent cough, had cogwheel respiration in the left lung and his heart was “irritable.” On October 11, he was sent to England with the recommendation he be returned to New Zealand for 12 months. He arrived at Torquay, the New Zealand Discharge Depot, on October 12 but a week later he was admitted to the temporary hospital at the town hall with influenza and acute pneumonic consolidation of the lung. Buckner was placed on the dangerously ill list and taken to the Red Cross Hospital on October 21. He died two days later from heart failure, aged 25. He is buried in the Hillingdon and Uxbridge Cemetery and remembered on the Springston War Memorial.

Private Charles Warwick Fountain Charles Warwick Fountain was born at Christchurch on February 2, 1891, to John Henry and Henrietta Fountain. He was working on a Hororata farm before enlisting on July 25, 1916. He had previous military experience with the Normal School Cadets although the Territorials had rejected him as unfit. Fountain was assigned to 19th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company, and was promoted to Lance Corporal on November 8. He embarked for Devonport on November 15. In England, he reverted to private before leaving for France on March 1, 1917. On April 28, Fountain marched out to the Segregation Camp supposedly intended to keep newly arrived soldiers who might be infected from passing on infection. He returned to the main camp on June 21 before joining 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field. A few months later conditions took their toll and he was sent to the field ambulance with diarrhoea, rejoining the battalion on September 1. However, he was ill with diarrhoea again two weeks later. Fountain spent a month with F Company NZ Engineers before rejoining 2nd Battalion again on the October 20. He fought with them for the rest of the campaign until he was killed in action on October 24, 1917, aged 27. This was only two weeks before the Armistice. The 2nd Battalion had received orders that two companies were to establish a line on the RuesnesGhissignies road, north-east of Beaudignies. Fountain is buried in the Beaudignies Communal Cemetery and remembered on the Ellesmere County’s Southbridge plaque, as well as the Hororata War Memorial.

James Samuel Humphreys James Samuel Humphreys was born at Tai Tapu on August 3, 1894, to Samuel and Eliza Humphreys. He was farming for his father before enlisting on July 26, 1916. He had previous military experience, having served with the Canterbury Yeomanry Cavalry, B Squadron.

On October 5, he was admitted to hospital with malignant malaria and on October 12 he was placed on the dangerously ill list at the 36th Stationary Hospital at Gaza where he died the same day. Humphreys is buried at the Gaza Military Cemetery and remembered on the Tai Tapu War Memorial, as well as the plaque in St Paul’s Church. • Selwyn Libraries welcomes your feedback or any information you can provide regarding these soldiers.

OUR PEOPLE

Former footballer’s biblical musical Rolleston resident David Martin has created a musical –The Calling, based on a story in the Bible. He talks to Fraser Walker-Pearce about Abraham, football and Sano Diyo Firstly, could you tell me a little bit about yourself? Where were you born, and where did you grow up? When did you move to Christchurch? What made you get into show business? I grew up in the United Kingdom, in northern England in 1948, so I’m 67. I’ve lived in New Zealand for almost 12 years now. We just wanted to do something with our lives in our mid-50s, so we moved over here. We lived in Guernsey (UK) before that; it’s much smaller than New Zealand, and Guernsey is old and full of history, while New Zealand is relatively new. I used to want to be a train driver, and became a footballer, but I’ve never had a massive driving ambition. I used to play in a band when I was younger, then I became a marketing manager in Guernsey; organising concerts, and trying to get cinemas into Guernsey. The story told in the Bible was of Abraham, he was told by God to take his only son Isaac, whom he’d

waited 100 years to have, and sacrifice him on top of a mountain. Imagine yourself in that situation, if you were Abraham, having waited all that time for a son and then having to do that. I’d read through that and inspiration kind of struck me. I went upstairs and sat down at my keyboard and wrote the first verse of a song called ‘Why me, Lord?’ I finished off the song later, and then went through the story in the Bible, and every time I re-read it, a new song came to me. Now there are 16 songs in total, and from that I put together a script involving the Bible and adding in bits and pieces where it was a bit vague; and all of a sudden, now we’re in rehearsal mode. We’re into the ninth rehearsal already. We have a five-piece band, and they’re busy learning songs, so altogether there are 21 people in our cast. Is it your first production? Yes, I’ve never done anything like it before. It’s pretty exciting really; it was scary at the start,

they were in their heyday. I had some great experiences there, but I was never going to make it into the big leagues. How have rehearsals been going? For the first part of rehearsals, we concentrated on singing for the best part of it, then into the drama and acting. People have volunteered to help out with costumes, makeup, sets and props and the like, so that’s been very helpful. The good thing about it is, I’m always open to changes in the songs, and there are always amicable agreements to smaller disagreements we may have. Where and when will the production be staged? It will in the auditorium of the Hope Church in Hornby, on Wednesday, September 30 at 7.30pm; then Friday, October 2 at 7.30pm, and Saturday at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are $10.

Child porn claim Mortgage broker dust-up in cellphone scam revealed in court A Christchurch mortgage broker is involved in High Court action to stop restraint of trade restrictions being put on him. James Heath is one of seven former Mike Pero Mortgages’ franchisees who have taken High Court action over restraint-oftrade obligations that stop them competing with the brokerage business for two years. The former franchisees of New Zealand’s largest chain of mortgage brokers are seeking a declaration that the restraint-of-trade terms they signed up to can’t be enforced, the New Zealand Herald reported.

BY ANDREW KING

Android phone users are being targeted by scammers who accuse them of watching child pornography and illegally downloading other material. The scammers pose as police, and also say the country’s security organisations the SIS and GCSB will take action against them if a $200 fine is not paid. A number of people have been hit, including a woman who reported the matter to the Papanui police. The scammers claim the phone user has opened objectionable files, including child pornography. The first three names of people in their contact directories will be contacted to be used as witnesses in any future court case. Internet experts say the scammers have managed to infect websites that could be regarded as being on the fringe. When those sites are opened by an Android user they inherit the scam. The scam is called Ransomware, the most problematic form of malware – or malicious software – to emerge over the past two years. NetSafe digital project manager Chris Halls said scammers using the GCSB, SIS and police as threats have been a regular occurrence since June. He said that while browsing around adult and movie stream-

BOGUS: If this appears on your Android cellphone, it’s a scam.

Mike Pero (New Zealand), franchisor of the mortgage business, has since got interim court orders against the seven franchisees preventing them competing with the firm as mortgage brokers. The company is owned by Australia’s Liberty Financial. Founder Mike Pero no longer has any part in the business. Details of the bust-up emerged this week in the Auckland High Court, where the company applied for those orders to continue against Mr Heath. Mr Heath was a Mike Pero franchisee in Christchurch

for 15 years. But he advised the franchisor earlier this year he would not be renewing his franchise agreement and was in the group that in April filed proceedings. The company says it would be harmed if the interim orders weren’t continued and eight of its other franchisees in Canterbury deserved protection. Mr Heath’s lawyer Paul Sills said there was no justification for the two-year non-compete period. He proposed a period of three months. Justice Simon Moore reserved his decision.

Rebuild doco to premiere at film festival

ing websites, they can sometimes prompt you to download a video player to watch the material and that’s how the virus gets in. “The device will be taken over by a virus-style infection and the screen will show a warning that encourages you to pay a $200 fine via the Ukash or Paysafe voucher network,” said Mr Halls. The woman who took her phone into the Papanui Police Station had received a message saying she had been watching child pornography and the police had blocked her phone. The scammers asked for $200. Sergeant Brendon Strieker said people should be careful about what they downloaded because of these type of scams.

Award-winning Christchurch director Peter Young’s new documentary will be shown for the first time at the New Zealand International Film Festival. The Art of Recovery captures the creative revival in central Christchurch, the global attention it is attracting and questions the ‘top-down’ Government-led approach to the recovery. It will be shown at the Isaac Theatre Royal on August 13 and 18. The film focuses on a small but passionate group of artists and entrepreneurs from the February 2011 earthquake over a four-year period. Among them, Coralie Winn

and Ryan Reynolds of GapFiller, street artist Wongi Wilson and his wife Emma, entrepreneurs Sam Crofsky (C1 café) and Johnny Moore (Smash Palace) and artist Peter Majendie who created the 185 empty chairs memorial. “Their stories reveal the power of the human spirit. What they have achieved in post-quake Christchurch is really quite remarkable,” Mr Young said. “They responded quickly and creatively to the earthquakes – bringing life back to the ruins of the central city by creating welcoming places for people to be. “It’s work that is attracting the attention of urban designers

around the world – some of whom feature in the documentary. They describe the creative recovery as ‘pioneering’ and ‘powerful’. ” NZIFF director Bill Gosden says the festival is delighted to be able to include The Art of Recovery in its programme. “We couldn’t be more pleased that our first NZIFF world premiere at the Isaac Theatre Royal celebrates the creative activity that’s burgeoned all around it,” said Mr Gosden. • NZIFF Christchurch runs from today to August 23. • For more information visit http://www.nziff.co.nz/2015/ christchurch/

District remains popular for building homes

Amy Adams Selwyn MP

BY AMY ADAMS, SELWYN MP Over the past few years Selwyn has been a region dealing with exponential growth. This general trend was intensified by the number of people relocating to Selwyn following the February 2011 earthquake. According to the National Construction Pipeline Report, which provides national and regional forecasts of building and construction activity, the value of building and construction activity is forecast to top $200 billion nationwide over the next six years, peaking at about $37 billion in 2016. If the forecast is correct this will be the strongest sustained level of growth in the industry in 40 years. However, there are signs that our local construction boom may have peaked, with growth in residential construction shifting from our region to Auckland, where it is most needed. When compared to the same quarter last year, there has been a 15 per cent decline in consents in Canterbury and a 19 per cent increase in Auckland. Housing consents in Canterbury are plateauing and forecast to drop from 7750 in 2015 to 3000 by 2020. Auckland consents are forecast to continue to increase from 10,500 in 2015 to around 14,000 between 2016 and 2020. This trend is expected to continue as the rebuild slows and momentum from Government housing initiatives gathers in Auckland. This will be welcome news for Aucklanders because the best way to address housing affordability is by increasing supply. However, this trend should not be seen as bad news for Selwyn as our region continues to be popular for families and businesses to establish themselves, particularly with land values remaining more accessible than in many parts of Christchurch. Some easing in the level of growth in Selwyn may allow local infrastructure to more readily keep pace with the increasing population levels. There may also be an opportunity for Selwyn to adjust to the national trends – much of our construction has been based around the three or four bedroom family home but there has been limited construction of smaller homes which may suit older couples or those living on their own. The average house size in New Zealand increased by 38 sq m in the 1990s, and by 2010 it had gained another 26 sq m. However, since 2010 the national average house size has been in decline and is expected to fall by 28 sq m this decade. This may provide our district council and developers with some food for thought.

GRASSROOTS SPORT Finding success

MULTIPLE WINS: Broadfield resident Ayrton Shadbolt, 14, has had a double dose of national sporting success in the space of two weeks. Ayrton won the junior boys’ long distance title at the National Secondary Schools Orienteering Championships, held last month in Nelson, and followed it up by finishing third in the boys’ under-15 National Cross Country Championships, two weeks later at Halswell Quarry. He was also part of a team from Christchurch’s St Andrew’s College orienteering team which won gold in the junior boys’ relay event. In the year 7 and 8 section, Ayrton’s brother Clayton, 11, a Broadfield School pupil, finished fourth in the sprint and long distance divisions.

Silver medal for basketballers Allenvale School student Bradley Garner was part of the New Zealand Special Olympics basketball team which won silver at the World Summer Games. They finished in the silver medal position in division two, which was held in Los Angeles. Garner, 20, was the top points scorer in every match the New Zealand side played. The division two ranking is the highest grading of any of the five New Zealand teams that have participated in the World Games since 1991. In the division two gold medal match against the United Arab Emirates, New Zealand went down 29-15. The team was coached by inaugural Canterbury Rams player, Al Robson, who also coached the New Zealand 2011 team at Athens to a division three silver medal. Robson said the side had their chances in the final but things didn’t quite go their way against the bigger more experienced UAE team. That left the side in sixth overall. At the medal ceremony, much to the New Zealand team’s surprise they were also presented with the

trophy for outstanding sportsmanship. This was the first time it has ever been presented to a team by the hundreds of volunteers who helped, making sure the tournament ran smoothly. They voted for the team that demonstrated the true values of Special Olympics as well as being friendly, respectful, showing sportsmanship and out of the 75

basketball teams the Kiwis were voted number one. The team qualified for division two after a series of six, short, 9min grading games winning four of the six. They played Saudi Arabia, Trinidad and Tobago, Hungary, Great Britain, Indonesia and Italy, with quite a mix of playing styles. In their first pool game after the grading games New Zealand came up against Trinidad and Tobago again. The side came from behind to win 23-17 with Garner playing a leading role. Robson said it was a really tight game. “They jumped out to a lead with their big man dominating the game at both ends while we were making mistakes. “Eventually we settled down and played some great defence. Bradley played a great game and made plenty of free throws drawing fouls on their big danger man.” The second pool game was a Kiwi whitewashing of Nippon Japan 58-15. In the final pool game New Zealand lost to UAE 28-14 but still came home with medals around their necks.

A try after the final hooter sealed Waihora’s third senior Ellesmere rugby title as many years. Centre, Ben Stuart, was the man who crossed the line to give Waihora the spoils 15-14 over Southbridge. The game was a rematch of last year’s final where Waihora, again, came from behind to pip Southbridge in the dying minutes.

Low-impact options for those starting out

Often when we start a new exercise regime, there are worries about the impact on the body, especially if carrying excess weight.

Y

ou don’t want the onset of injury to deter you just when you are getting back into creating a healthier lifestyle, so it is important to pick exercises that will still help you gain the benefits but aren’t going to cause too much pain or suffering. There are many low-impact options that

are ideal for those who want to prevent injury but still improve their overall health and wellbeing. Make a splash Swimming, aquafit classes and aqua jogging are all great ways to exercise while not putting any pressure on joints or muscles. In fact,

often those who are injured or recovering from surgery use this not only to maintain fitness, but to strengthen and recuperate. The Selwyn Aquatic Centre at Rolleston offers hydrotone or aquafit classes, or you can sign up for adult swimming lessons. For the more experienced, there are adult swimming squads. Get on that bike Cycling is not only low-impact, it is also a really great way to improve cardio fitness and strength in the legs. You can join the lycra-clad who take to the roads around Selwyn, or even attend a spin class at your local gym or community centre.

Hit the trails Walking is a really cost-effective way to start your exercise programme. You can just put on some appropriate footwear and clothing, and head out the door. Once you have mastered walking on the flat, a good way to challenge yourself is to start incorporating some hills into this exercise. We are lucky to have a number of flat and hilly tracks around the Selwyn District and futher afield – all great places to get outdoors and see the marvellous place we live in.

Why not just try 15 minutes a day for the first week, then add on five minutes the next and so on. You will soon find you’re able to go further – a good indication of your fitness improving. Resistance training Using your own body weight, weights in the gym or even resistance bands or kettlebells are great ways of improving strength and fitness. There are a number of exercises available on Youtube which incorporate these or visit your local gym to see how you can use them. Triceps dips using a dining chair, lunges up and down your lounge, squats and step-ups are all exercises which will start working your body into shape. Even planking, push ups and sit ups are great for defining and sculpting the body. Just ensure that you get the technique right so you are working the intended parts of your body and not putting strain on other places. Of course if you want to get a plan that is individual to your needs, not sure where to start or if you suffer from an ongoing injury or pain, it is always good to talk to a personal trainer or a sports and conditioning coach who can create a programme to cater to these challenges.

Age barrier to aworkout workout Age nono barrier to an easy-does-it The health benefits of daily exercise are widely known, but seniors facing health and mobility issues may feel working out is beyond their abilities. Resistance training can help those who fear falling or damaging ageing muscles and bones while exercising. For those with health concerns that might make strenuous exercise difficult, resistance training can be an accessible option that provides both physical and mental benefits, a study indicates. “Resistance training — also called strength training — is an especially safe, valuable mode of exercise for seniors,” says Dr Kevin O’Neil, a chief medical officer for Brookdale Senior Living. ‘‘As you age you lose muscle mass, bone density, strength, balance, co-ordination and flexibility — all of which can result in higher risk of falls and increased difficulty performing daily tasks. Resistance training allows seniors to exercise in their own home and can use items found in their house.

The method relies on the use of resistance to build muscle strength. Slow, measured movements are easier and more stable for seniors to perform than the strenuous activity of many types of aerobic exercise. “Smooth, controlled movement gives seniors the benefits of the specific exercise with less risk of injuries or falls,” says Nicholas Swanner, a clinical specialist and healthcare services manager for Brookdale. Before starting any kind of exercise programme, seniors should talk to their doctors. Once they have the go-ahead to begin resistance training, many forms can be beneficial. “Resistance training can include using resistance bands, lifting weights or objects around your home, or using exercise equipment,’’ Swanner says. Some of the exercises included in aquatics, pilates, tai chi and yoga are types of resistance training, and have the added bonus of social interaction when done in groups, he says. “Seniors can benefit from any type of resistance training as long as it’s done safely and is

part of a regular routine. Swanner recommends seniors start slow with lower-resistance exercises and listen to their bodies. “As you age, your body changes and this will impact how and what types of exercises you will be able to do safely. There are many ways to modify exercises, routines and individual styles of training to fit a senior’s specific needs.” Resistance training offers many benefits for seniors, including improved strength, balance, co-ordination and posture, better bone density,

session three or four days a week if they’re able to, or if that is too strenuous they can break their workouts into 10-minute intervals throughout the week and still reap the benefits. “We always tell our seniors to start low and go slow when they’re beginning an exercise programme,” O’Neil says. “Just 10 minutes a day provides health benefits and can feel much more achievable for seniors. “Exercise duration can then be increased as endurance improves.” Resistance exercises should be done two to three days a week for each muscle group with a day of rest in between. This does not mean that other types of exercise, such as aerobic or flexibility exercises, should not be done on rest days. “Even if a senior has mobility or health issues that hinder aerobic exercise, he or she can still do resistance training,” Swanner says. “Talk to your physician and physical therapist to design a programme that’s right for you.”

Home is where the hanging basket is

BY TOD PALENSKI

To me, nothing makes a house seem more like a home than a hanging basket floating welcomingly at the entrance – especially if it’s filled with vintage flowers like the sweet william. In fact, this ornamental plant is perfect for hanging – especially with pansies and lobelia around the outside – as it tends to sit neatly in a little mound, rather than growing free-form across the basket. If you’ve already cottoned on to the hanging basket trend and have a couple at your place, you may have noticed they’re due for a refresh. Sweet william is the perfect replacement plant, with the biennial giving you bright, colourful flowers from spring until autumn. But it’s not all about hanging baskets. Sweet william also does nicely in pots, is great for borders and ground cover, and makes pretty cut flowers (just asked Kate Middelton who used it in her bridal bouquet when she married … uhem … sweet William. And don’t even ask how I know that). Wherever you decide to plant, make sure it’s a sunny

DELICATE: Sweet william is perfect for your hanging basket, in a pot or in the garden. Mix it with other plants to add colour. spot and that the soil is rich and well-drained. Simply dig a little hole, insert your seedling and space each plant about 20cm apart. That really is most of the hard work done. The thing I like about sweet william is it may look delicate, but when it comes to

growing its pretty hardy and simply gets on with the job. It will even tolerate cool mornings and over-head watering, and will thrive happily without any deadheading. In no time your plants will reach a delicate height of 25cm – just about perfect for your hanging basket.

Bite into the crunch bunch Rachel Vogan explores the virtues and benefits of growing your own super sprouts at home

Sprouts ready to eat: snow peas, radish, lentils, peas and alfalfa.

27

Baby mung bean

A popular one for sprouting, and with a nutty and complex taste, these are a good one to have on hand. Once sprouted, they will last for a week or more in the fridge as the colder temperature slows down the growing process.

Onion sprouts

SPROUTS superfoods, packed with nutrients and goodies that feed the body, mind and soul. Anything jam-packed full of antioxidants has to be good for you, right? Too right!\ Over winter, our bodies work hard to stay fit, healthy and warm so the very least we can do is help them by fuelling them with foods that help fight all the nasties and lurgies that can put you out of action for a few days. Sprouts are seeds that have started to swell and germinate. Some sprouts, such as lentils, are eaten before the leaves or stems even appear. Others, such as snow peas, can be eaten at the root and shoot stag, or left to develop a few leaves. The best thing about growing sprouts at home is that it’s so quick to do, hardly any patience is required. The tools for the job are already in your kitchen; all you need is a saucer, plastic dish or preserving jar, some water, and the sprouting seed of your choice. Soak seed, drain onto your choice of container, and leave somewhere cool for a few days. Kings Seeds and Wright Sprouts have neat sprout kits which are, essentially, a plastic screw-on lid with a fine wire mesh top to it.

Sprouted onion seeds are just divine, with such a delicate onion flavour. The seed, roots and shoots can all be eaten. Onion seeds take longer to germinate than most other sprouts; allow 3-4 weeks before eating. These seeds are best grown in a seedling tray in seed-raising mix.

I have one of these and it’s really useful. When you want to strain off the excess water from the seeds, the seeds don’t all fall out of the jar. The alternative is to drain the seeds through a sieve or a piece of muslin (which can be messy and fiddly).

Sprouting tips and ideas • Buy seeds which are labelled as ‘seed for sprouting’. This means that only the right varieties are being grown for sprouting and that they are free from any chemicals. • Soak seed well prior to germinating. All seeds need water to stimulate the growth process, so soak yours for 20min or overnight, depending on the seed type.

Alfalfa

As light as a feather, it’s hard to fathom that something so delicate is so easy to grow. Soak seeds for a few minutes, drain and leave somewhere cool for a few days (a windowsill away from full sun is ideal). Ensure a little moisture is left around the seeds to aid the germination process. Shoots and roots appear within a week. Use as soon as they look big enough.

Alfalfa is ready to harvest within a week, so say goodbye to those slimy sprouts from the supermarket, and grow your own!

gardening without guesswork I would like to know if when an orchid flower dies, do I cut back stem or not? I inherited a beautiful orchid Spring-time white/yellow, it has small growths coming out up the stems and I am not sure what to do. It is very healthy and I just love it so don’t want to do the wrong thing! I would appreciate some advice.

Question:

Only cut back the stem of these orchids to where they are shooting new growth which will have the new flower buds. Do not cut back to the base of the plant unless the stem has dried off and is not showing any signs of growing. As they begin to grow, they do benefit from regular liquid fertiliser for orchids. Make sure you do not over water them as they don’t like having “wet feet”. They will need a regular water in the summer months, and less in the winter. Good air-flow around the roots is essential too. They need to be kept in a place where they are getting strong light, but not direct afternoon sun. Even with their fussy nature, these plants really are a delight to have around the house and add a welcomed touch of beauty to the home.

Historic partnership to be reprised Anchor milk has announced it will be partnering with the All Blacks, refreshing its original 1935 Anchor-All Blacks partnership.

O

n July 31, 80 years ago, the All Blacks and Anchor milk products were loaded onto the 17,000-tonne export ship Rangitiki and set sail for the shores of England side by side, marking the beginning of Anchor’s partnership with the All Blacks’ successful 1935 tour of Britain, Ireland and Canada. Fonterra Brands New Zealand director of marketing Clare Morgan says many of those 1935 players came from dairy farms themselves, as many still do today and it’s the shared values of the two that fuelled the original partnership and remains true today. “New Zealand was built on the hard work and broad shoulders of its farmers. They tamed the land, and they made it productive. True grit and determination have always been the making of our dairy industry and our other world-famous

exports like the All Blacks. “Back in the mid-30s, Anchor partnered with the formidable All Blacks team and in doing so showed what being New Zealand-made was all about. That’s goodness, growth, strength and greatness,” Ms Morgan says. She believes the DNA of Fonterra dairy farmers and their local communities have always been a huge contributor to the All Blacks’ success, on and off the field. “While Fonterra farmers have provided the milk that’s fuelled many generations of All Blacks, the country’s farms have also been the training ground for a good number of All Blacks, including George Nepia, Sid Going and Colin ‘Pinetree’ Meads,” she says.   “The work ethic and hands-on attitude of dairy farmers lends itself to performing well at the highest level.”

Rural Section HOURS Mon - Fri: 7am - 5pm Saturday: 8am- 12pm

On September 7, Anchor will #GoStrong with the All Blacks - more details on the Anchor Milk-All Blacks partnership will be released in the next few weeks.

food science research

Research and education relationships between New Zealand and China continue to grow with the appointment of professor Charles Brennan, director of Lincoln University Postgraduate School, as a chair professor at South China University of Technology in Guangzhou.

establishment of a government-sponsored New Zealand food innovation pilot plant next to the university’s food science facilities. Professor Brennan says it is a step that sees Lincoln University being recognised as the home of food innovation in New Zealand. Professor Xin-An Zeng, director of food science, speaking on behalf of professor Wang Yingjun, president of South China University of Technology, says, “This co-operation with professor Brennan and Lincoln University marks an important occasion in the relationship between our two countries. “I think the co-operation with South China University of Technology will advance the research of both universities and countries and cultivate global scientists who can lead change in the areas of food science and technology. We are proud to have Charles as our newly appointed chair professor.” Professor Charles Brennan received the appointment while visiting China and attending an international science meeting to deliver a key note speech on “The modulation of obesity, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease through novel food engineering and science solutions”.

I am honoured and privileged to have been appointed as a professor at South China University of Technology and look forward to the exchange of research ideas and experiences.”

MOTORING

Toyota 86 delivers plenty of punch WHEN production of Toyota’s MR2 ended in 2007, it looked as if the company would abandon forever the idea of rear-wheel-drive sports cars. However, in conjunction with Subaru, Toyota is back in that segment with a car they simply badged 86, in reference to the sporty Corolla AE86 of the mid80s. The AE86 was also known as Trueno, Sprinter and Levin, depending on the markets where it was sold. The 86 isn’t exactly new, it was launched in 2012 and landed in New Zealand in 2013. The car this evaluation focuses on is a revised model which has had a cosmetic upgrade along with some suspension revisions, both of which have enhanced the model. I’ve been lucky to experience several 86 drives on my home patch, and in this instance the changes to the suspension are noticeable improvements; compliance, absorption and ride comfort have increased dramatically, yet the changes don’t come with a loss of performance, the 86 is still the affordable sports car that has captured the imagination of followers globally. The 86 is built solely by Subaru, yet Toyota take the lion’s share of production; consequently, the engineering which has gone into the model is biased toward the Subaru way of engineering techniques.

slotting of the manual shifter provides a constantly sporty driving experience. For the record, the 86 can accelerate from a standstill to 100km/h in 8.2sec. It will also return a 7.8-litre per 100km/h (37mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average according to Toyota. The 86 lands here from $42,586, the GT as tested sits at $47,486 with $1000 extra in each case for automatic transmission. Toyota Racing Development kits can also be optioned which personalises the purchase if a buyer so desires. The 86 buyer gets a good level of kit in an environment which is dynamically appealing, the test car included a new heated red/black leather trim option which certainly adds to the character of the car. Toyota are back in the performance market with a vengeance, I can’t wait for further development on this car, I’m also hoping Subaru’s turbocharging expertise will find its way into the car as it progresses though its lifecycle.

Make your home eco-friendly

Christchurch’s Leading Property Management Company

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 thermos-mass 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 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.

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! Heating To reduce air pollution, we have introduced Solar panels In a country with abundant sun and cleaner burning appliances such as pellet fires, warmth, it seems extraordinary that solar approved wood burning stoves and gas fires, as energy isn’t our first choice for water heating. well as various forms of electrical heating such Initial setup costs are recouped quickly and as underfloor, warm air circulation systems even if your solar panels supplement your and heat pumps. Central heating of air or electricity usage, you’ve still saved on the water-filled radiators is also efficient, using a bills and done your bit for conservation. single energy source to warm several rooms. 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 a passive flow of fresh air, thus reducing reliance on air conditioning.

Other eco-friendly ideas Install a rainwater tank for garden irrigation or carwash. 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!

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District

Giving thought to the

kitchen design

The kitchen is one of the busiest parts of the home therefore giving thought to its function and purpose makes sense.

T

o some extent, kitchens design themselves given where they sit in the overall house plan and taking account of features desired. It may lie to one side or be central to the living area and many are now sited a little away from windows and natural light. If quick meals, takeaways and eating out are the go, then a smaller kitchen may be fďťżine. In contrast, the creation of gourmet dishes, baking scrumptious goodies and entertaining will need more space for preparation and storage. The kitchen is often a gathering place where people will mingle at a party, so a spacious island is an asset. Large islands are also great as a family eating place, for

reading the newspaper and a workspace where children can complete homework, draw or play with mum or dad watching on and helping them with schoolwork while preparing a meal. Popular are galley kitchens with stand-alone stoves or cooktops located opposite island sinks. Overseas island cooktops have appeared with ceiling-hung range hoods, and any hood should be larger than or at least equal to the width of the cooktop. Latest kitchen fashions show brass, bronze or gold fďťżittings and colours blending with the monochromatic, and black or white appliances are back in fashion. Stainless steel is also in use as cupboard and drawer facia, while wood cabinetry is creeping back.

Glass and tiles splashbacks are still popular, the latter more detailed and even a mosaic, making them a feature. Have these sealed to assist cleaning and prevent stained grouting. Wall-hung or free-standing furniture style cabinetry and sometimes less high cupboards have appeared abroad, and more kitchen pantries have open shelving instead of cupboards, with cookbooks and preserves on display though not such a good idea for keeping breakables safe. Large kitchens and walk-in pantries are almost standard in high-end larger homes. A dark pantry is great for storing food, especially fruit and vegetables and hiding the mess. Some people include a sink for washing dishes, baking or preparing food. In doing so, weigh up the reason for having a pantry to avoid it just becoming a second kitchen that is separated from the family and results in inefficient work flow where appliances like the cooktop and dishwasher, and storage of crockery or cooking utensils are in the kitchen itself. Emerging new toys in smart appliances are also making high-tech and glamorous kitchens. These include smart ovens that determine the required cooking time, built-in hot and cool drink dispensers and iPads that play music and offer instant ordering of groceries.

Christchurch office: 521 Blenheim Rd. P: 348 1994

Large kitchens and walk-in pantries are almost standard in high-end larger homes. A dark pantry is great for storing food, especially fruit and vegetables and hiding the mess.

With so many new and innovative kitchen trends and features, it is easy to be swept away yet what do you need your kitchen to do and what would you really like? Setting a budget and thinking about practicality may result in a more serviceable work area with better flow and utilisation of key components like the sink, cooktop and particular storage areas.

Incorporating show homes in your

planning process

B

There are many things to think about when you’re considering building a new home.

rowsing show homes is a fantastic way to get you thinking about practicalities, needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here are a few considerations to help spark your planning process. What is your exterior style? What kind of homes do you like? Look around and take a mental note of what you are drawn to the most. What kind of exterior materials do you like? Once you’ve worked out the look you like, research what materials are available and find out about durability. How will you use your house? It’s important to most people to have a good indoor/outdoor flow and attractive, sheltered outdoor living. Imagine your home in various seasons. Landscaping is important. Look around and consider what you like and don’t like. Are you a structured formal garden type or do you like a contemporary native style? Sustainability and future-proofing aren’t just buzzwords any more. It’s very important for your new home to be environmentally friendly. Research insulation requirements, solar hot water heating, ventilation options and new technology to ensure your home will be affordable to run. Interior décor is really exciting. This is where show homes can really help

you get to know current trends, colours, beautiful furnishings and furniture. Collect home magazines and figure out what you’d love to emulate. Also pause to give thought to architectural components inside. Do you remember a raised ceiling? What kind of finishing do top homes use and which styles are you drawn to? Heating is also a consideration. Have a look at what show homes are offering. Kitchens form the heart of the house. Show homes give you insight into the latest styles, materials and storage facilities available. Bathrooms are another big component. They need to be as luxurious as you can make them, so start dreaming!
