Firefighters resign in mass protest BY TOM DOUDNEY

Six of Lake Coleridge’s eight rural firefighters, including the chief officer, have resigned after an essential fire engine was taken from the brigade. The district council sent the vehicle to West Melton rural fire brigade due to a low number of fires in Lake Coleridge and a greater need in the Central Plains area. However, former Chief Fire Officer Bruce Simpson, one of those who resigned in protest, said if the fire engine had not been taken off the brigade, a recent fire in Intake Rd could have been contained to 2ha.

Instead it burnt through 40ha. The fire destroyed a caravan, farm sheds and part of a plantation. “We resigned in protest simply because they have taken our initial response appliance away. That means we have to wait for at least 45min just to get to the area and we are just supposed to wait to assist them (other brigades),” he said. “Every fireman here is absolutely gutted. It leaves the whole community vulnerable.” The fire brigade was left with only a water pump vehicle. The firefighters said they will return to duty if the district council returns the fire engine.

They have made a submission to the district council requesting this. District council chief executive David Ward said new members were being recruited to the Lake Coleridge brigade. “A review was undertaken earlier this year looking at where firefighting capability and vehicles were needed in Selwyn, based on where fires were occurring. In Lake Coleridge figures indicated there were a low number of fires occurring, with between one and five fires recorded per year over the past decade,” he said. “An alternative vehicle, which is capable of carrying pumps, has

been made available for the Lake Coleridge brigade and will be in place by late August.” Mr Simpson said the proposed vehicle was insufficient and would be a ‘taxi’ to get to fires. Before the mass resignation there had been more than 50 years’ of combined experience in the brigade. While other brigades could respond to fires in the area, they would take longer to get there, said Mr Simpson. The nearest brigade was Hororata which did not have a four-wheel-drive vehicle like the one taken from the Lake Coleridge brigade, he said.

Prebbleton resident Adam Parnell has placed third in a regional apprentice of the year competition. He wowed judges in the Central South Island’s Registered Master Builders Carters 2015 apprentice of the year competition, by replication of a century old two-storey villa. Judges said he had a strong understanding of the “difficult project”. “He displayed qualities in his attitude and workmanship that any senior tradesperson would be proud of,” they said. Judges said Mr Parnell (right) had outstanding project presentation, sound knowledge of building practices and very good attention to detail proved by quality workmanship. Mr Parnell said he is passionate about his building career, and that he strives for excellence. “I am highly motivated in all aspects of my building career,” Mr Parnell said. “My dream is to go far in the building industry, and one day establish my own company building quality homes of the highest standard for clients.” Apprentice builder from Kennedys Bush, Jono Blakely, placed second in the competition. The 19-year-old was

described by judges as having “a strong depth of experience in many available trade skills with high technical knowledge

Lucky escape

and is a strong and respectful communicator.” “Jono has been trained well in the housing sector, showing a good knowledge in building methods, materials and safety issues,” they said. Mr Blakely has been an apprentice for over two years for Andrew James Builders. He said that over this time he has pushed himself to learn new skills, work hard and maintain high standards in all he does. “I want to build on my industry understanding, I’m also studying a Diploma in Construction Management & Quantity Surveying at CPIT part-time,” he said. Hei Hei resident Hamish Ward quit the army and took on a building apprenticeship, and has now been named the Central South Island’s Registered Master Builders Carters 2015 Apprentice of the Year. The 26-year-old was set for a career in the army, but his experience during the earthquakes changed his perspective. He worked on the front lines after the earthquake, helping people out of damaged buildings. That was what motivated him to join the construction industry, he said.

A Christchurch man is lucky not to have been seriously injured after his car wiped out a power pole in a crash on Rakaia Terrace Rd near Te Pirita, police say. Senior Constable Tony Beaumont said the man, aged about 30, appeared to have lost control on the shingle road at about 12.30pm on Sunday. His car was extensively damaged and he was taken to Christchurch Hospital as a precaution, although he appeared to be uninjured. Excessive speed was not thought to have been a factor but the investigation was yet to be concluded.

Tools stolen

A number of tools were stolen from an engineering workshop at Lincoln University over the weekend. The items taken included welding and power tools. The burglary was discovered on Sunday but police said it was not yet known when it had occurred.

Fires escape

Fires escaping into nearby trees kept firefighters busy last week. On Sunday, at about 5.45pm, Dunsandel firefighters put out a rubbish fire which had spread into some trees on a Dunsandel and Brookside Rd near Leeston. On Friday, at about noon, firefighters from Burnham, Rolleston and Kirwee were called to the site of a burn off which had spread into a hay pile and tree line. Rural firefighters took over control and put it out.

Birth rate up BY GABRIELLE STUART Selwyn appears to be in the midst of a baby boom, with an 18 per cent increase in births for the region since the earthquakes. Midwives report high demand for their services with many fully booked six months in advance. Statistics New Zealand data shows the numbers of births in the area have risen by 18 per cent since the earthquakes, with almost 100 more babies born in Selwyn this year than in 2011. Numbers in Christchurch have dropped over the same period. The total population in Selwyn rose 15 per cent between 2011 and 2014, from 42,900 to 49,500. Karen Perriam of PregnancyWise has worked as a midwife for almost 10 years, but shifted her focus to Selwyn seven years ago after moving to Broadfield. She said she had more calls from mothers in Selwyn this year than ever before. “I think it’s all the people moving out west. It’s getting a lot busier across the whole district.” It had not changed the numbers of clients she took on, as she could only work with a limited number of families at one time. But it made it harder to find a midwife or a fill-in, particularly at times when numbers were already stretched, particularly over Christ-

Karen Perriam mas or the summer holidays, she said. Many of her clients wanted to give birth in the Christchurch Women’s or St George’s hospitals maternity units, particularly if it was their first baby. But they often moved to maternity units at Darfield or Lincoln hospitals for post-natal care. Fellow midwife Vanessa Oswell has also been very busy. She is one of seven at Lincoln Independent Midwives, and all were fully booked, she said. She said this was the most midwives the practice had had for years. They were booked up months in advance. That meant some mothers needed to find a midwife from Christchurch willing to travel to see them. “I haven’t heard of anyone in the district who can’t get a midwife, because there are midwives in Christchurch who will come out this way. But it can be difficult

if they are a bit more remote, or living in Rakaia or Southbridge areas,” she said. She said the local maternity units had never been too full to accept one of her clients. “A bigger number do want to give birth in town, but that is because a lot these days have more complicated pregnancies. We try to support the Lincoln unit because it is a really great place to birth.” The Statistics New Zealand figures are collected over the year to June. The numbers dropped in 2012, dropping in Christchurch at the same time. But they have risen in Selwyn, while they remained low in Christchurch.

Rocking out Lincoln High School band Altero’s hopes of playing in the national Smokefreerockquest relies on the public vote. The first six bands to play in the final were chosen by judges but the seventh place is decided by public vote. Altero is one of 21 bands vying for the last place in the finals and sits on third place currently. The band is comprised of year 13 students, from left, drummer Bede Barrie, guitarist Miceal Wilson, singer Min-Young Her and bassist Jared Whiting. They are influenced by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Kings of Leon, Tool and the Mars Volta. Voting closes this Friday at 2pm. People can vote by texting the band name to 422. Texts are 20 cents per vote and there is one vote allowed per mobile. The final will be held at Epsom Girls’ Grammar in Auckland on September 11.

OUR PEOPLE

Keeping busy on the bike and When Karli Haugh isn’t working as a swim instructor at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre she’s off testing her mettle against the world’s best triathletes. She spoke to the Selwyn Times about the next event on her calendar, what else she gets up to, and what she dreamed of doing as a young child

Hi Karli, how long have you been working here? I have been working at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre for over a year, after I moved from Dunedin in April 2014. During this time I have progressed from part-time swim instructor to the utility person. What does a typical day at work involve? Typical day… no day is the same for me! It can be filled with one or more of my multiple roles; either swim teaching (children or adults), aqua instructing, planning or coordinating an event at the centre, lifeguarding or sitting in the office completing admin work. Generally you will find me poolside in the afternoons and evenings taking learn to swim classes. What do you enjoy about working here? I really enjoy the variety that my role brings, I’m not terribly good at sitting still for too long

so I really like being up and about. I also like how each day brings a different challenge, it keeps my mind in gear and helps me to continue learning. The greatest reward however is the excitement and pleasure that I see when both children and adults succeed in our facility whether it is in the learn to swim classes, squads, or one of our events like flippa ball. Tell us something interesting that is coming up for you. In September I am heading over to Chicago, USA for the 2015 age group triathlon world champs. I was selected to be part of the New Zealand triathlon team for this event through my performance in the South Island and national triathlon champs. This is the third year in a row that I have been selected and the second time I will be racing at worlds after being unable to compete last year due to breaking my collar bone in a

cycle race. I will be racing in the 20-24 age group in both the aquathlon (1500m swim, 5km run) and standard distance triathlon (1500m swim, 40km bike, 10km run) events and aiming for a top 15 placing. I am very excited to be racing with the silver fern on my front again and having my parents and partner Liam there cheering me on. It will be really special. What keeps you busy in your spare time? At the moment all my spare time is put into training. I train between 20-30 hours a week. I often start with swim training before work and then running, cycling and/or gym conditioning after work it doesn’t leave much time for anything else. However this is the way I like it, I like being busy and feeling like I have accomplished something throughout the day.

Fewer dogs being destroyed BY TOM DOUDNEY

in the water What is your greatest accomplishment? To date this would have to be being selected to represent New Zealand in the World Triathlon Champs for the past three years. I guess also being ranked 27th in the world in 2013 was pretty special too, however I hope to better this in Chicago when I race next month. Other accomplishments include graduating with a degree in physical education and becoming a sponsored athlete.

Nineteen dogs have been destroyed due to serious attacks on people and animals over the past five years. The figures, released to the Selwyn Times by the district council, show that 2011 and 2012 had the highest numbers of dogs destroyed for the period from 2010 until last year. There were seven destroyed in each of the two years. The number fell to three in 2013 and two last year. The figures refer to dogs put

What was your childhood dream career? To become a sponsored athlete, and to my delight this dream has become a reality. Leading up to Worlds I have managed to secure sponsorship with Mike Pero Real Estate Selwyn, New World Rolleston and Franks Brothers Gym Selwyn. These businesses along with many other Selwyn businesses have been imperative in my road to Chicago. I am extremely grateful for all their support.

Owl’s that? The South Island Wildlife Hospital had a little owl brought in from the Charing Cross/Greendale area after being narrowly missed by a large truck. Volunteer Angela Tranter said: “He is very sleepy but still breathing. He is now home with one of our volunteers who is giving sub cut fluids and incubating to keep him warm.” They will get him back in for X-rays in the morning to see if he has any internal damage.

PROUD: Haugh, pictured here before going kayaking, has been selected to represent New Zealand in triathlons in each of the last three years.

Custom-made BMW New horse-riding facility on the way for little Anthony At only three-years-old, Anthony Murray from Leeston is sporting a brand new BMW. Last week he and nine other children, with development disorders, were given toy BMW cars by charity Gobabygo. Anthony has Agenesis corpus callosom, which is a failure of the link between the left and the right hemispheres of the brain. He was given a sporty red BMW car to help with his development. Thirty-seven electric toy cars have been handed out by the charity over the past year and serve not only as a toy but also a therapy tool, said Gobabygo board member Jacqui Madelin. She said word has spread quickly about the cars. Parents and medical specialists apply online for the car at Gobabygo’s website. If the application is accepted the car is adjusted with harnesses and stop, go, steering and protective adaptations to suit the individual child, she said. The cars cost about $1500 each, but BMW New Zealand has donated the cars. Cars are then adapted by the team from Gobabygo. Last week the adaptations to the cars were done on site at Jeff Gray BMW Christchurch. Dealer principal Matthew Hodgson said it was a “special morning”. “It was really quite humbling. The smiles and the sheer enjoyment when NEW WHEELS: Anthony Murray, 3, of Leeston, received a brand they realised they were in control of new toy BMW from charity Gobabygo to help with his developsomething with power was great,” he ment. said.

A new 350ha horse-riding area is being developed in the Waimakariri River Regional Park. It will provide a facility that links with established equestrian facilities in the McLeans Island area. The trails will be developed in the forest between Chattertons and Weedons Ross Rds and will provide a safe environment for riding away from motorised recreational activities. Environment Canterbury regional parks team leader, David Owen, said the new facility is being developed in response to demand from local horse-riding enthusiasts. “With the Selwyn district experiencing significant growth in recent years, there is now even more demand for outdoor amenities that local people can enjoy. “We have been working closely with the Selwyn District Council to secure funding and develop a plan for the new area

and we’ve met with interested parties and formed an advisory group. Fulton Hogan is also contributing to the project by providing direct assistance with staff and machinery. “The dedicated horse riding area will include at least 10km of safe riding trails through pine forest. There will also be plenty of parking for horse floats and toilet facilities so we’re sure it will be very popular with the local community,” he said. The development will be completed in stages and it is expected the facility will be open by late summer/early autumn. The Waimakariri River Regional Park provides a great mix of recreational opportunities and biodiversity and conservation hot spots. The park offers the community a wide range of activities including mountain-biking and walking, trails and trail bike riding riding, horse riding, fishing and general river access.

A new exhibition called Eco Artists at Lincoln’s Down by the Liffey Gallery will open to the public on September 2. Running until September 27, it features

Soldiers of Selwyn

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

Men struck down in the 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. Clement Arthur Dartnall Dartnall was born at Springston on January 27, 1891, son of Henry Lloyd and Sarah Brookholding Dartnall. He was educated at the local school and afterwards attended the Boys’ High School for a couple of years. On leaving school he entered his father’s business, working as a storekeeper for Dartnall and McMeekan, Springston. He was one of most popular young men in the district, and a very keen tennis player, being captain of the local club at the time of enlistment. He had previous military experience with the 13th Regiment, North Canterbury and Westland. Dartnall enlisted March 13, 1915 and was assigned to 6th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion. He was drafted to the Non Commissioned Officers camp where after training he was promoted to Corporal on October 21, 1915, then to Lance Sergeant on March 4, 1916 and then full sergeant the next day. He embarked on August 14, 1915 and arrived in Mudros, where he joined the 1st Battalion Canterbury Regiment and as usual reverted to the ranks on September 30, 1915. He was appointed Corporal at Anzac, Gallipoli on October 21 where he saw considerable fighting and was among the last few to leave the Peninsula.

He disembarked at Alexandria on December 30, 1915 and was promoted to Lance Sergeant at Ismailia on March 4, 1916, although this was later changed to full Sergeant. He embarked for France on board the Franconia from Port Said on April 6, 1916. After arrival in France on April 11 he was sent by train to Morbecque, near Hazebrouck where the New Zealand Division was gathered. He fought throughout the Somme campaign and was wounded on September 27, 1916 suffering a severe gunshot wound to his right shoulder during the attack to capture Gird Trench, near Bapaume. He was taken to hospital at the 8th

General Hospital in Rouen on the same day, and was later evacuated to England on October 3, being admitted to hospital at Reading the next day. On October 23 he was transferred to the 2nd New Zealand General Hospital at Walton on Thames. It was here that he learned on December 8 that he had been awarded the Military Medal for acts of gallantry in the field. On November 12 he was attached to the Depot at Codford where he had a slight bout of influenza on December 28. He was transferred to the Convalescent Hospital at Hornchurch on January 29, 1917. Then he was detailed to Hornchurch this time “on command” from March 19 to April 14 at which time he relinquished his duty as Platoon Sergeant. He was given leave from 14th and was to report to Codford on May 30. He was nominated for officer training and then transferred to the No 2 Officers Cadet battalion at Pembroke College Cambridge for instruction on May 5, 1917. On completion of the training he was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant supernumary (exceeding the usual number) and posted to the Canterbury Regiment.

On November 2, 1917 he was seconded for duty in New Zealand as officer commanding Reinforcements. He left for New Zealand on board the Tainui the same day. On arriving back in New Zealand he took leave, spending it with his parents in Fendalton and to help his cousin with harvesting. He reported to Trentham Camp to take up his posting on February 21, 1918 and was attached to the headquarters instructional staff on February 28. He contracted influenza and died at 3.50pm on November 15, aged 27, at the Featherston Military Hospital from pneumonia following influenza. Dartnall is remembered on the Springston War Memorial. Ernest Robert James James reported that he was born June 14, 1885 in Boughrood, Breconshire, Wales, fifth child of William and Hannah James. Interestingly he may have fudged his birth date a little as his birth was registered in 1883 and he was recorded as aged seven in the 1891 census. His father was a farmer and by 1901 he was working as farm servant driving a wagon. Between 1901 and 1914 he came to New Zealand and by 1914 he was working in Brookside as a farm labourer. Before enlisting he was working as a teamster for W Mulholland in Darfield. However,

when listing a next of kin he nominated his friend Albert Bateman in Springston. James enlisted on May 30, 1916 and was assigned to the 17th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company and embarked with them for Devonport on board the Pakeha on September 23, 1916. He arrived in England on November 19 and then on to France on December 9, 1916. He joined the 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment in Rouen, France on January 7, 1917. He served with them throughout the fighting in France but was sent on leave to England on January 3, 1918, returning on January 20. He was detached to join the Corps Lewis Gun section on March 14, 1918 rejoining the main Battalion on March 27. On June 23, 1918 he was admitted to 12th General Hospital with bronchitis being discharged to Base depot on June 29 and later in early July he was admitted to the 46th Stationary Hospital with dysentery so severe he was not released until July 25, 1918. He was killed in action October 2, 1918 during the fighting around Vaucelles when the 2nd Canterbury occupied the whole of the new brigade front south of Les Rues des Vignes. The position of his body was recorded but could not be retrieved and James is remembered on the Grevillers Memorial.

field and in camp The memorial commemorates almost 450 officers and men of the New Zealand Division who died in the defensive fighting in the area from March to August 1918, and in the advance to victory between August 8 and November 11, 1918, and who have no known grave. In New Zealand James is remembered on the Springston War Memorial.

James Alexander Lowe Lowe was born on October 5, 1895 at Rolleston, son of Edward and Sarah Jane Lowe. Before enlisting he was farming at Butts Valley, Heathcote. He had previous military experience with the Coastal Defence Force based at Lyttleton. He enlisted on September 21, 1917 and was assigned to C Company on October 23. He was graded as C1 likely to become fit after special training because of a heart problem but a medical board found him fit for service on November 16, 1917. On December 4 he was transferred to the 35th Reinforcements. He was hospitalised for measles for six days between January 2631. After training at Featherston he embarked on May 2, 1918 with the 36th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry, D Company on board the Balmoral Castle. He arrived in London on June 21, 1918 and marched into Sling Camp on the same day. Two months later he marched into Larkhill, 10 miles north of Salisbury. He left for France a month later with the Canterbury Infantry Battalion on September 18 and marched into Base Depot at Etaples the following day. He was posted to the 2nd Battalion, Canterbury Regiment on September 23. Sadly 15 days later he was wounded in the battle for Cambrai and died of his wounds. He was NEW where LOCATION buried near he ADVERT.pdf died and 1 the co-ordinates recorded but it

was lost and his name is recorded on the Grevillers Memorial to the Missing, in the Grevillers British Cemetery, France. In New Zealand he is remembered on the Springston and Ashburton War Memorials.

James Jeremiah Hogan Hogan was born at Gundegai, Australia on May 3, 1882, son of James and Lucy Hogan who later settled at Springfield. He had been a railway surface-man stationed at Doyleston. He was married at Christchurch on August 1, 1916 to Clara Olive Burgess, daughter of E Burgess, railway ganger at Leeston. They had one daughter Eileen May born September 12, 1917. Before enlisting he was working for Werner and Co at Doyleston. Hogan attested at Christchurch on December 17, 1917. He had a burn on his right leg and was determined to be fit for service after a month to heal. Accordingly leave was granted until April 29, 1918. He entered camp on June 18, 1918 and was assigned to Training Unit, A Company 43rd Reinforcements then transferred to C Company 44th reinforcements on October 5, 1918. He finished training and was on the point of sailing when the first news of the signing of the armistice by Germany was received. He became one of those who was

stricken with influenza in camp. He died on November 17, 1918, aged 37, at the Featherston Military Hospital. Like other soldiers who had died he was buried at Karori Cemetery, Wellington. Hogan is remembered on the Leeston Plaque of the Ellesmere County War Memorial.

Thomas Brown He was known in the family as Tam, was born at Glentunnel on May 25, 1887, youngest son of Thomas and Mary Brown. He was educated at Glentunnel School. His parents moved to Coalgate, and after leaving school he joined his father in the working of Waterside Farm. He then spent two years driving at Gisborne and married Eva Elizabeth Brinson at Napier on April 21, 1915. He was of a mechanical turn of mind, and invented improved planes for aeroplanes and a silencer for a rifle, both inventions receiving the approval of the military authorities. He had previous military experience having served with Canterbury Yeomanry Cavalry.        His name was selected in the ballot and he attested on February 4, 1918. He was originally assigned to A Company 41st Reinforcements but he was later transferred to A company of 44th Reinforcements. He was

appointed Lance Corporal on June 18, 1918. He was admitted to the Trentham Military Hospital on November 12 with influenza, dying eight days later on November 19, aged 31. His was one of five deaths reported on November 20 taking the death toll of soldiers who had died to 105. Like many others who died at the camp he was buried in Karori Cemetery, Wellington. Brown is remembered on the Malvern County and South Malvern War Memorials. John Pearce Pearce was born at Brookside on June 25, 1894, son of James and Ellen Jane Pearce. Before enlisting he was working as a farm labourer for his mother at Brookside. He had previous military experience with the 13th Regiment. Pearce enlisted on April 4, 1916 and was assigned to 15th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company. He embarked on July 26, 1916 from Wellington arriving in Devonport on October 3, 1916 and marched into Sling Camp on the same day. He left for France almost a month later on October 20 and marched into Base Depot at Etaples the next day. From there he joined the 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment in the field on November 8. He was sent to hospital on January 26, 1917 by the Field Ambulance suffering with influenza but was well enough to re-join his battalion on February 9. He fought with them through the battles of 1917 including Messines but was he was wounded on October 12 in the disastrous attack at Passchendaele. He suffered a gunshot wound to his face and his right leg as well as a fractured femur. It was a through and through wound but his case was complicated as he had a case of trench feet as well. He was taken up by the No 1 Field Ambulance and admitted to

the 3rd Australian Casualty Clearing Station on 13th then taken on to the 3rd Canadian General Hospital at Boulogne on 14th. On October 16 he was placed on the seriously ill list where he remained until November 4. He was evacuated to England on board the hospital ship SS Cambria on February 7, 1918 where he was admitted to 4th London General Hospital at Denmark hill on February 8. This hospital had a neurological section established in early 1915 and acted as clearing hospital for these cases. He remained there until March 5 when he was transferred to the No 1 General Hospital at Brockenhurst. On March 26 he was assessed by a Medical Board and classified as unfit for service and to be sent back to New Zealand. He embarked for New Zealand on board the Marama from Avonmouth on April 6, 1918. On May 18 he was admitted to the Chalmers Military hospital in Christchurch suffering from severe cellulitis as a result of the gunshot wound to his left leg. This hospital had been set up in the Chalmers Ward of Christchurch Hospital in October of 1918 to act as an orthopaedic hospital for returned soldiers. He contracted influenza and it was felt that his resistance was so lowered by the infection that his death was attributed to his war service. He had been one of the wounded soldiers brought out to the Ellesmere Show and at that time he was very hopeful and expected to be well on the road to recovery in the near future. Sadly he died of influenza and pneumonia at Chalmers Military Hospital , Christchurch on November 20, 1918, aged 24. He was buried in Brookside Anglican Churchyard with the Rev. P. Jones, of Leeston, conducting the burial service. John is remembered on the Irwell Plaque of the Ellesmere County War Memorial.

Maths Week fun

11

West Melton School celebrated Maths Week with some fun activities, which the children loved. Pupils were divided into three community teams, kiwi, pukeko and moa, and everyone got involved. The kiwi team used their knowledge to help them learn to read numbers up to 10; the pukeko kids solved addition problems with groups of 10 using value; and the moa students learned about measurement.

Call for youth MPs

FUN NUMBERS: Izzy Triggs and Lilly Muirsmeath joined in with the pukeko group, learning about addition of 10 in group values. TEAM WORK: These moa students learned how to make a cable map of the school, by using a measuring trundle. From left: Tasman Boskell, Sam Lyon, Brooke Summerfield, and Dwight Felipe.

LET’S LEARN: Clockwise from front left: Jordyn Maher, Payton McDonald, Jack Breward and Emily Powell-Nicol from the kiwi group, who were practicing addition to 10.

A youth representative in Parliament is being sought to work alongside Selwyn MP Amy Adams. The successful budding politician will go to Parliament in Wellington and see how decisions are made. All young people between 16 and 18 were encouraged to apply. The successful applicant will join 121 other youth MPs from around the country to represent Selwyn from January 2016. Ms Adams said: “Youth Parliament is held once every parliamentary term and is a significant opportunity for young New Zealanders to share their views and the views of their peers with the country’s decision-makers. “I want to hear from young people who are willing to get out and engage with other young people in their community, to gather their views and

represent them in Parliament.” Ms Adams will promote the opportunity among local secondary schools in Selwyn. Each school will be invited to put forward two candidates. Interested applicants who live in Selwyn but do not attend a local high school should contact Amy Adams’ Selwyn electorate office as soon as possible. Applications close on September 23. The final selection of the Youth MP will happen on October 5. “This year two places at the Youth Parliament are available, as speaker of the house Rt Hon David Carter will be joining me in this selection process and will be choosing a young person to be his Youth MP also,” Ms Adams said. Nominated Youth MPs will hold the title from January 25 to July 25, 2016.

Brushing your teeth calls for a If you brush twice a day, you’ll have cleaned your teeth more than 20,000 times before you reach the age of 30. But could you be doing it wrong? Gabrielle Stuart talks toothbrushes and techniques with the experts DENTAL SURGEON Ruchika Sachdev has looked inside thousands of Cantabrians’ mouths over the past 15 years. The majority of patients she sees at her surgery, Smilesville Dental, have problems caused by bad brushing technique. And the problems are not what you might expect. Skipping flossing or not brushing thoroughly enough or for long enough can cause serious issues. But she estimated more than 60 per cent of patients she saw had problems from brushing too much or too hard. “If they are using a brush which is too hard or brushing with a lot of pressure, you will see the enamel wearing away,” she said. If that was caught in the early stages, changing your technique or using different brushes or toothpastes could help. But if the enamel had worn right down it was impossible to replace, and you may need a protective coating put on your teeth. Most people didn’t realise they were doing anything wrong, she said.

“A small set of people are aware of problems with their technique, but about 90 per cent are not aware at all. They will think they are doing a good job and won’t realise there is an issue until they come to the dentist and we tell them about the problem.” Many people reported having sensitive teeth, and that was often a sign they had damaged the enamel, Dr Sachdev said. She wanted to see proper techniques taught to children in schools, because there was so much misinformation about it. Flossing was another problem, as more than half of patients she saw said they did not do it regularly. New Zealand Dental Association Canterbury branch president Keith Chiang said a lot of dentists around Christchurch reported similar problems. He said flossing was a particular issue among immigrant communities in Christchurch, as it wasn’t common practice in many parts of the world. Dental problems caused by stress were also a particular prob-

lem in Christchurch, he said. Dentists had reported an unusual rise in fractured teeth or fillings caused by grinding or tensing teeth in the two years after the earthquakes. And dentists were still seeing problems caused at the time of the earthquakes which had gone untreated and become a lot worse, he said. “When you ask patients when did your tooth break, they will always give you a date around 2011. They say my teeth were the last thing I had to worry about

The Prebbleton Soccer Club is proud to announce that our Prebbleton Rovers Side has won the CSSL Division 2 title for 2015, unbeaten with 13 wins and one draw. The team has been on an aggressive rise thru the divisions in the last couple of years and look forward to the Challenge of Division 1 next year. The Prebbleton Rovers still have the 2015 Bolam Cup rounds left and are looking forward to the challenge to round out the season. Captain John Boal puts their success down to a long preparation starting before Christmas last year and a good club environment. Club President, Shannon Gilmore is extremely proud of the team and looks forward to cup rounds ahead and Division 1 next year. The other teams in the club have had an enjoyable season but the Prebbleton Rovers are by far the most successful this year.

FOOTBALL FUN Prebbleton Soccer Club will run its popular 5-A-SIDE tournament every Tuesday night at the Prebbleton Reserve from October through to March with teams competing for a trophy or cup. Mixed players of all ages and abilities play 30 minute games with juniors and intermediates starting at 5.30pm followed by senior games at 6.00pm and 6.30pm. “There’s a family atmosphere making it an affordable fun community sporting event. Players as young as three years’ old through to intermediates and seniors participate,” says club president, Shannon Gilmore. “It’s social on and off the field with players heading to Prebbleton’s Finnegans Irish Bar to share supper and their stories after the games.”

The tournament: • starts the first Tuesday in October. • is open to mixed teams and individuals. Registration forms found on the club’s website www.prebbletonsoccer.co.nz must be dropped into Finnegans Irish Bar in Prebbleton by Monday, 21 September. For more information, check the club’s Facebook page or contact Shannon Gilmore: finnegans@xtra.co.nz or 0275 798 811 who also wants to hear from anyone who can assist with the tournament.

when they had so many problems with their homes or losing work.” He said it was difficult to judge the scale of the problem, because the cause of an issue wasn’t always recorded or remembered. But he is regularly in contact with many dentists working in Canterbury, and said most had reported the same issues. A lot of people put off dealing with the problem because they were worried about the cost, or didn’t realise how bad it was, he said. “These things need to be treated or identified quickly, but there is a

cost involved and often the same people are having problems with their homes or work, so they are worried about the cost.” But he said the problems could become a lot worse, and a lot more expensive to treat, if they were ignored. Christchurch is one of the few cities in New Zealand where water is not fluoridated. But Dr Chiang said most people who were brushing their teeth regularly with a commercial toothpaste would be getting enough fluoride.

little bit of wisdom Technique Understanding what you are trying to achieve when you’re brushing is the key to getting it right. Plaque starts to form near the gumline, so you should aim the bristles at the gum line at about a 45-degree angle. Rather than brushing back and forth – which could be hard on the enamel of your teeth – use short, circular motions to sweep away the plaque. It’s best to work around your mouth systematically, so you don’t miss anywhere, and make sure you’re cleaning the outer, inner and chewing surfaces of your teeth.

How long do you brush for Most experts agree you should brush your teeth for at least two minutes. If it is difficult to keep track, you can break it up and spend 30 seconds on each corner of your mouth. But although you should be thorough, you can’t brush too much. Too much brushing in one spot can damage your gums or enamel, and make your teeth sensitive.

Plaque is soft and easy to remove, so brushing hard won’t give you any extra benefit – and a soft or medium-soft brush is the best choice for most people. A frayed toothbrush won’t work properly, so make sure you replace it regularly – and one that wears out too fast could be a sign you are brushing with too much pressure. Brush long enough to get in the crevices and clean all your teeth, but stop once you’ve gone over them all once.

Which toothpaste Choosing a toothpaste can be difficult, as there are dozens of different types and brands all claiming different benefits. Whitening toothpastes can make a noticeable difference, but some are abrasive and can cause problems if used for too long, or if your teeth are sensitive. Tarter control toothpastes usually contain sodium pyrophosphate or sodium hexametaphosphate, which will help to discourage tarter from forming. Some people avoid toothpastes which contain flouride, but it is included for its cavityfighting properties, and most dentists recommend it.

Manual or electric

You could buy more than 100 budget manual toothbrushes for the cost of some electric ones. Many cost more than $100, and the price for some rises above $400. Are they worth it? If you’re using a good brushing technique and brushing for long enough, a manual toothbrush can in theory work just as well or better than an electric one. But almost 30 clinical trials involving more than 2500 participants have shown consistently better results using electric toothbrushes. They showed, on average, an electric brush reduced plaque by seven per cent and gingivitis by 17 per cent, over a manual one. If you’re a lazy brusher, it is easier to do a better job with an electric toothbrush. That is one reason they are often recommended for children. The novelty of an electric toothbrush can amake it easier to motivate some children to brush. And if you’re shopping for an electric brush, Consumer NZ has tested seven of the most common ones. The Oral-B ProfessionalCare 1000, which retails from $160, was the only one to receive a five-star rating – rated easy to use, comfort-

The most expensive tested, the Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean, retailing from $390, received one of the worst rankings with just three stars for usability, although the battery life was excellent – 21 days – and it had more settings and a better timer than other brands.

The cheapest, the Oral-B Vitality TriZone, which retails from $50, did better in the trial earning four stars. But it had only one setting, a lower battery life and no low battery indicator. Consumer NZ also put all the toothbrushes through a “shower test”, where their effectiveness was tested after two minutes in water. All the brushes passed.

Young athletes eyeing US Attending college in the United States on a sports scholarship is becoming an increasingly popular option for young athletes trying to further their careers. Andrew Voerman looks at what it involves IT IS easy to see the appeal of playing sport on scholarship at an American college. Getting to train in state-of-theart facilities, play in intense competitions, mix with other highly skilled players, and learn from experienced coaches is one thing. Getting to study towards a degree, and receive qualifications that will set you up for a career if and when your sporting one ends is another. Getting to do both, and have most, if not all, of it paid for, sounds like a fairy tale. However, it is becoming an increasingly popular reality for young Cantabrians, who are looking stateside as they come to the end of their high school days. Scholarships, which can be worth upwards of $10,000 per year, are available in more than 20 sports, with basketball, field hockey, golf, soccer, tennis, and volleyball among those proving popular with New Zealanders. The Selwyn Times knows of at least 30 Cantabrians who are either at US colleges already, or about to start their first year, a group that includes Tall Ferns international Tessa Boagni, who is at the beginning of her second year at California State University, Northridge, and golfer Nicole Hamilton-Cross of Hororata, who will start at Western Illinois University at the start of next year. Like ours, the American college year runs from the end of one summer to the beginning of the next, which in their case, means from August to June. There are several organisations which run college competitions, but by far the largest is the National Collegiate Athletic Association, which counts nearly 1100 different schools among its members, spread across three divisions, which in turn hand out about $2.7 billion worth of scholarships each year. Teams compete in conferences, which tend to be split along geographic lines – the PAC-12, for example, includes schools on the west coast, near to the Pacific Ocean, while the SEC, or Southeastern Conference, includes schools on the opposite side of the country, from Texas along to Florida – before the top sides come together at the end of the season for the national championships, which often involve a knockout event of one form or another. With a structure as large as the NCAA’s, it can be difficult for a prospective athlete on the other

of them playing and competing, as well as a CV outlining their accomplishments so far, which is then sent off to thousands of coaches across the US at the click of a button. If any are interested, they begin a conversation, first with Jessica, and then with the athletes themselves, by email, then over Skype and by phone, and in some cases, face-to-face at a campus visit. That conversation might be over quickly, or it might last for several months, as both athlete and coach try to figure out if what they can offer is right for the other. College coaches have a limited number of scholarships to offer, and a pool of thousands of athletes to choose from, so there are many of these conversations going on, but eventually, they have to end, and if an athlete has proven themselves, they will be offered a scholarship. Between last year’s class and this one, Pullar has helped 14 young athletes receive them, mostly to schools in the NCAA’s top division, with another three already lined up for next year, and more than a dozen others currently going through the recruiting process – she is even working with students who are targeting the class of 2019 to make their move. Her company isn’t the only one that exists to help New Zealanders make the move to US, but it is one of two to have a Cantabrian connection – former Tall Black Mark FOCUSED: Hororata golfer Nicole Hamilton-Cross is one of the young Cantabrians Pullar has helped to land a Dickel’s Mainland Eagles AcadUS college scholarship. emy, set up to help South Island basketballers prepare themselves to try and receive scholarships, is the other. Nor are the athletes she has helped send over the only ones doing so – there are plenty who have gone through the process on their own, or with the help of another recruiting firm. One of those is basketballer Boagni, who earlier this year talked to the Selwyn Times about her freshman experience. A member of the CSUN Matadors (every college has its own mascot), she made valuable contributions as they won the Big West conference, then went down fighting in the first round of the national championship, where they played the much higherranked Stanford, before coming home for the summer, where she cracked the Tall Ferns for the first time, playing for them against Japan at home in Christchurch.

Initiatives to combat family violence

▌NEW ▌ ENTRANTS

People should feel safe in their homes with their families. Sadly, for some people, this is not the reality. Last year, more than 100,000 family violence incidents were reported to police – that’s around one every five minutes. About half of all homicides in New Zealand are a result of family violence. On average, 14 women, seven men, and eight children are killed by a member of their family every year, and we have the fifth highest rate of child abuse and child death in the OECD. The rate of family violence in New Zealand is totally unacceptable and one of my key priorities as your member of Parliament and the minister of justice is to make changes to help bring this rate down. With this aim in mind I recently launched a discussion document that takes a hard look at the way the law prevents and responds to family violence. The Government wants this to be a ground-up discussion about how we improve New Zealand’s laws in this area. Laws alone won’t solve it, but they are the cornerstone we can build on. To get different results, we have to do things differently.

Amy Adams Selwyn MP

The discussion document raises a number of topics to start discussion including: Establishing a set of stand-alone family violence offences; creating an additional pathway for victims, perpetrators and whānau who want help to stop violence, but don’t want to have to go to court; ideas about improving the accessibility and effectiveness of protection orders; doing a better job of sharing information where family violence concerns arise between agencies and within the courts; considering compelling police action in certain circumstances such as requiring mandatory arrest for all breaches of protection orders; and giving more prominence to victim safety in related legislation like the Care of Children Act and bail and sentencing law. The Government wants to hear what people think about these proposals along with any other ideas you have for strengthening New Zealand’s family violence laws. For a summary of the discussion document and to have your say, visit the Ministry of Jus-

tice website: https://consultations. justice.govt.nz/policy/family-violence-law. Consultation on these proposals is open until September 18 this year. This is just one part of our work on the cross-government package announced by the prime minister last year, to make sure we have effective services in this area supporting families. This Government is committed to addressing the high rate of family violence so people can feel safe in their own homes.

Help plan your town’s future

Survey finds life

We are working to develop area plans for Malvern and Ellesmere.

is good in Selwyn

We asked some Malvern and Ellesmere residents what they liked about living where they are and how they wanted to see their town develop in the future. You can share your thoughts online at www.selwyn.govt.nz/ areaplans until Friday 28 August 2015. I like living the rural lifestyle. I think that with the growth the district is experiencing a bus service around the district and to the city should be considered in the future. John, Coalgate

There aren’t many things to do for kids in Leeston. We have to drive to Rolleston or Christchurch if we want to do things with the kids, which is costly. Michael, Leeston

What are we doing to improve services? Selwyn is a great place to live according to local residents. That’s one of the findings of the Council’s most recent residents survey with 90% of the 1,000 people taking part in the survey saying our district is a great place to live. The survey is carried out annually by an independent research company. The survey identified some positive results and has also highlighted some areas where the Council will be looking at improving services. In this year’s survey, 60% of residents rated the council’s overall performance as good or very good, up from 58% in 2013 when this question was last asked. Overall, 18 of the 26 Council services surveyed received ratings of 50% or higher, with nine rated above 75%. Eight services recorded ratings below 50%. Satisfaction ratings increased for 62% of the services surveyed. Community facilities like libraries, swimming pools and parks are well used by Selwyn residents. 98% of people taking part in the survey said they had used a community facility in the past year. Rubbish and recycling collection were the Council’s top performing services and were rated as very good or good by 93% and 94% of residents. Other services that were rated well (with over 80% of people happy with the service) were parks and reserves, libraries, playgrounds, sewerage and public swimming pools. Lower-rated services were rural and urban roads. More information is included in the table on what the Council has done recently and is planning to do to improve core services. A complete list of the areas surveyed and results is available online at www.selwyn.govt.nz.

Water Supplies: a standard water charge for most areas of Selwyn with a Council water supply is helping to keep this essential service affordable for all our communities. Council is progressively upgrading and improving water supply services. Recent improvements have included UV treatment and filtration upgrades and the installation of backup generators for a number of rural and urban water supplies. Additional wells have been developed at Rolleston, Lincoln and Prebbleton and will start operating soon. These will provide additional capacity for these rapidly growing areas. A reticulation upgrade has also been completed for the Leeston/ Doyleston supply to improve the capacity of the system. Sewerage: the Eastern Selwyn Sewerage Scheme (servicing Rolleston, Lincoln, Prebbleton, Springston and West Melton) provides a state of the art wastewater treatment system allowing for growth into the future. Council recently installed new effluent irrigation pivots for the Eastern Selwyn Sewerage Scheme and Ellesmere Wastewater Treatment Plan providing additional disposal capacity while reducing environmental impacts. A standard wastewater charge for areas with a Council wastewater supply is helping to keep this essential service affordable for everyone. Urban roads: funding for our roading maintenance programme over the next 3 years has increased by 21% from the previous 3 years. Significant investment is planned to improve roads including working with NZTA to improve roading infrastructure to deal with more traffic in Rolleston’s industrial areas. Improvements to Rolleston town centre through intersection changes and to cater for pedestrians and cyclists are planned and in Lincoln to make the town centre more accessible for pedestrians and cyclists. Rural roads: satisfaction is relatively low but rose 4% in 2015. In 2014 the Council started investing more on road maintenance as government support for this area had not adequately kept pace with traffic growth in Selwyn and the increasing number of heavy vehicles. In our Long Term Plan we indicated we will continue to invest $1 million more a year on roading maintenance, with NZTA also announcing extra assistance last year. Future investment in this area should help improve satisfaction with this service. Cycleways: satisfaction with cycleways rose by 20% in 2015. New cycleways between Springston and Lincoln and Lincoln and Rolleston have been completed. The Council plans to develop new cycleways between Glentunnel and Coalgate, Leeston and Doyleston and Rolleston and Templeton over the next four years. Footpaths: we have an annual programme to provide footpath extensions as towns expand and resurface existing footpaths. Rubbish and Recycling: satisfaction with this service is high. Over the next year we will look at making waste bags easier to use and improving recycling services for remote residents and communities. Public swimming pools: satisfaction with swimming pools has lifted from 45% in May 2013 to 81% now since the Selwyn Aquatic Centre opened in June 2013. The Southbridge Pool changing room facilities are currently being upgraded. Parks and reserves: Foster Recreation Park is a major new sports park being developed. We are also considering developing a large scale park to host activities like mountain biking, walking and horse riding. Improvements or extensions to local reserves are planned at Southbridge, Leeston, Cemetery Pit, McHughs Forest Park, Kirwee Domain, Darfield Domain, West Melton Reserve, Brookside Park, Weedons Domain, Prebbleton Reserve and Lincoln Domain over the next 10 years. Community centres and halls: planned new facilities include an indoor sports complex at Rolleston, Prebbleton Community Centre, West Melton Community and Recreation centre and a community centre at Dunsandel. We are also planning to support the development of a new or upgraded community facility at Tai Tapu. Libraries: Lincoln Library opened in 2014. A large new library is planned for central Rolleston to open in 2019. We will be working on encouraging more people to join and use library services.

Pipes are being laid along roadsides on Springston Rolleston and Dynes Road. The first stage of works is now underway and while this is being completed Springston Rolleston Road will become one way. Vehicles travelling towards Springston will be able to use the road as normal, however vehicles travelling towards Rolleston will be diverted down Dynes Road and Goulds Road to reach Rolleston. The diversion is expected to remain in place for several weeks. Once stage one works have been completed, Springston Rolleston Road will be reopened to traffic both ways, and Dynes Road will become one way. When this occurs traffic travelling towards Gould’s Road can use Dynes Road as normal, while traffic travelling along Dynes Road towards Springston Rolleston Road will be diverted along Goulds Road. We apologise for any inconvenience while diversions are in place. PRIVATE PLAN CHANGE 46 Clause 5 of the First Schedule, Resource Management Act 1991, Selwyn District Plan Mrs Gillian Logan has lodged a

private plan change request with the Council. The plan change request seeks to lift the deferred status over approximately 130.39 hectares of land currently zoned Living 2A (deferred); the plan change will amend the zoning from Living 2A (deferred) to Living 2A. The site of the plan change request is at 160 Bangor Road in Darfield. The proposed plan change relies on the existing objectives and policies for the Living 2A zone but proposes a number of new and amended rules which will specifically relate to development within the land subject to the plan change. In addition, the plan change will insert an Outline Development Plan (ODP) for the land subject to the plan change into the District Plan. The plan change will provide for subdivision down to an average of 1ha subject to consistency with the Bangor Road ODP. This will allow for the creation of around 125 sites. The plan change and the assessment of why it is needed can be read at Council service centres and Selwyn libraries or online at www.selwyn.govt.nz Submissions Any person or organisation may make a submission supporting or opposing any aspect of this plan change. Submissions must be written and in accordance with Form 5 of the Resource Management Regulations which is available from any Council Service Centre or on the website. Submissions may be: Posted to: Planning Department, Selwyn District Council, PO Box 90, Rolleston 7643 Delivered to: A Council service centre in Darfield, Lincoln, Leeston or Rolleston. Faxed to: (03) 347 2799 (if you fax your submission please post or deliver a copy to the details above) Emailed to: submissions@ selwyn.govt.nz At a later date, all submissions

received will be summarised and published. Further submissions will then be invited, allowing any person or organisation to support or oppose any of the initial submissions. A Council hearing will then be arranged to consider all submissions, after which the Council will decide whether to reject or approve the plan change. Any submitter who is not satisfied with the Council’s decision can appeal to the Environment Court.

​Lincoln Uni set for final BY JANE SEWELL

Two seasons as bridesmaids will not be what fuels Lincoln University to perform on Christchurch club netball’s biggest stage.

In a repeat of last year’s premier grand final, the university side will meet defending champions Kereru at Pioneer Stadium in tonight’s season decider. Lincoln University coach Bev Gordon believed the desire to get their performance right was the driving factor behind wanting to win their first club crown since 2012. “We want to go that one step further and we’ve got a lot of young new players in the side this year who are very excited to reach this point,” she said. “But we know we have to get it right on the day because Kereru are a side that never backs down.” Gordon has been pleased with what she has seen from her charges in the championship round, where they have gone unbeaten – including a 58-56 win over Kereru earlier this month. Goal defence Lily Fletcher has been one of the finds for Lincoln University this season and has formed a formidable combination with Lucy Gunn and Jane Watson, while at the other end of the court Kate Shearer and captain Elizabeth Hayman have been the steadying influences in the shooting circle. Tactix player Hayley Saunders is key in the mid-court but Gordon has

plenty of options through the middle. On paper there is one match-up which looks set to determine the outcome with Kereru shooter Julianna Naoupu a key cog for her side and is likely to come up against Watson. Naoupu was instrumental in guiding Kereru into the final netting all but seven of her teams 47 goals against Technical in last week’s semifinal. Kereru coach John McCarthy knows it will take another step up from his side after they beat Technical in last week’s semi-final, but has also been pleased with what his charges have produced recently. Defensively Kereru have been strengthened with the return of Jen Naoupu who paired up well with Kayla Williams. The mid-court has also come into its own in recent weeks while McCarthy has two options at goal attack, in Lauren Robb and Courtney Cramond, to team up with Julianna Naoupu in the shooting circle. The grand final starts at 8.30pm and in what will be a big night for the two clubs, their two B teams will meet in the Premier 2 final at 7pm at Pioneer Stadium.

Bands to rock out in competition Selwyn’s best school bands will take to the stage this week in the Canterbury Rockshop Bandquest. Prebbleton School’s TNT and Beat 9 are performing on Thursday at Chisnallwood Intermediate. Rolleston Primary School’s Beatz are playing at the Riccarton High School auditorium on Friday as well as Templeton Primary’s Nameless 2. Rockshop Bandquest is for bands of two or more members, from intermediate or primary schools, who will play a short set of covers or original songs. There is an award for the best original song to encourage bands to write their own material, but the focus is on performance skills. Rockshop donates prize vouchers to the winners’ schools, and spokesman Hamish Jackson says Bandquest is a great event for the nationwide chain to support. “Many countries are seeing a drop in kids learning instruments but Bandquest is bucking this trend,” he said. “The more we can get kids playing music through events like Bandquest, the better it is for the artistic health of New Zealand music.” Video footage of the finalists will be displayed from September 18 in an online national final at bandquest.co.nz. The announcement of national winners and other awards will be made on September 23.

SELWYN TIMES

▌READERS’ ▌ LETTERS survey results are collated.

Garth Paul: Should the CPW have an $8 million loan from the council ?? Yes – but only if they pay 30 per cent interest on it and back the loan with assets. That way the ratepayers who provide the money would be on a winner for a change. Otherwise they should go to the banks with cap in hand. Given that they have virtually no assets and it is a very risky loan in these economic times with a very uncertain outcome the answer will probably be no. Perhaps they could raise the money overseas or through the farmers who would use / profit from the scheme? I certainly don’t see why the ratepayers should be put at risk with such a risky loan from the council. Kim Miller: The Selwyn council, should realise it is not a bank. The question of loaning my money should not arise. If they have that amount of money to play with, they should be looking at affordable good quality housing for our young people to invest in, instead of them having to pay extortionate rents for properties that come straight out of the Dikensian era. And as for, the significant potential benefits, for whom? I wonder if there are any conflicts of interest here. Nigel Humphries: I find it hard to believe that our council is even considering lending any funds at all to CPW, and even harder to accept that council thinks twice

about lending $8 million. The proposal makes no sense whatsoever bearing in mind that, should the project be successful, a very small and select minority of Selwyn residents and ratepayers will benefit.  For Mayor Coe to suggest that ‘rural households’ and ‘the district’ would benefit is just not true. I will be surprised if council does not agree to lend the $8 million because history tells me that the decision has already been made.  However, I trust that the council will do an in-depth risk assessment (using professionals), will be charging a suitable interest

HAVE YOUR SAY If you have an opinion on a current issue, email in 200 words or less to tom. doudney@starmedia.kiwi rate (which of course they can not disclose because of commercial sensitivity), will obtain guarantees from stakeholders to protect ratepayers’ money and will lend for a suitably short term of say two years. It is not a council responsibility to be involved in financing businesses and it is to be hoped that the views of the ratepayers of the district will be heeded when the

Jens Christensen: Regarding Central Plains Water’s request for an $8 million loan from the district council, I say it is a no brainer – do it! The Selwyn district and Christchurch City Council were the promoters of this scheme over 15 years ago and Selwyn has been the catalyst with previous seed funding and assistance. That previous money has, I believe, been repaid. With all schemes of this size someone needs to get them started. In the good old days it was the Government through the Ministry of Works. Now it relies on local funding including council, the farmers and banks. Selwyn has an excellent track record in creating employment and dividends with the Izone industrial park and this is but another investment in employment in the district. There is a lot of talk about the returns of dairying being so low that irrigation is not viable but surely farmers with water have the security of growing what produces the best return, be it dairy, potatoes, seeds, sheep etc. I took a trip up through Hororata and Windwhistle and noted the dozens of shiny new pivot irrigators and pipe works associated with Central Plains Water. There is no doubt in the minds of those farmers about the desirability of water. So council, don’t ask. Don’t procrastinate, get on with the seed funding for the design of stage 2 of Central Plains Water.

The upcoming season will again see plenty of great tennis competitions and events taking place across the Tennis Canterbury region.

A

s well as plenty of Christchurch events successful junior tournaments in Nelson, Blenheim, the West Coast and Ashburton compliment the established Tennis Canterbury events held in each of the School Holidays and over holiday weekends. With Z Energy Wilding Park now having 18 courts playable major tournaments are now able to be held in just 1 venue after multiple venues had to be used since 2011. Despite this logistical challenge numbers involved in tournament play have now rebounded to above 2011 levels. 2015 will see Wilding Park host the prestigious Tennis New Zealand Junior Masters over Labour Weekend. This event was programmed for Christchurch in 2011 but had to be transferred to Blenheim after the quakes and this is only the second time since its inception that the event has been held in the South Island. The event will see 8 players in each of the boys 12’s, 14’s and 16’s age groups’ battle it out.

Players gained their spots by gaining points through tournament play with all sanctioned events counting and selected tournaments such as the Canterbury Champs and Nationals having additional points up for grabs. Canterbury regional players to gain automatic invitations include Burnside Park’s Taylor Nelson and Dylan Heap in the 16’s boys, Hagley Park’s Jamie Garbett and Te Kura’s William Schneideman in the 14’s Boys and in the 12’s Nick Schneideman from Te Kura and Shirley’s Jordan Edwards. Representation in the girls grades include Marlborough’s Otway twins Jade and Kyla in the 12’s with Ashburton’s Tessa McCann in the 14’s. Tennis Canterbury has received 3 of the 12 wildcards on offer with current New Zealand representatives Sydney based Valentina Ivanov (16’s Girls), and Naynay Homkrum from Shirley (14’s girls) receiving spots and Te Kura’s Jenner Johnson grabbing an opportunity in the Boys 12’s.

Ellesmere And Malvern Tennis

Country Junior Tennis representatives before their annual match with town earlier this year

E

llesmere tennis organizes and oversees the competition between 16 clubs and is affiliated to Tennis Canterbury. On Saturdays last year, 40 senior teams and 81 junior teams entered into various grades across the competition. More to the west the Malvern sub-association serves 9 clubs and has 21 senior and 30 junior teams. In Ellesmere the Senior competition offers a 4’s Grade, who play singles, doubles and mixed doubles and a Presidents Grade who play doubles and is aimed at players 35 and over. Both are played on Saturday afternoon starting at 1pm. A new 3’s Grade will be offered this season. The Midweek doubles competition is played on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 6.30pm and finishing at 8pm. This is a very popular competition and had 74 teams enter last season. For the new season a new grade will be offered on Thursday evenings, possibly all at the same venue, for those players who want to play singles. As well as the Saturday and midweek competitions there are annual senior singles and doubles tournaments for all Ellesmere & Malvern tennis players and the opportunity to play senior representative tennis in the Browning Shield team. The Browning Shield competition is played over one weekend between Ellesmere, Malvern, North Canterbury,

Mid Canterbury and West Coast representative teams. Ellesmere & Malvern Tennis also have Seniors (over 35 years of age) teams who play other country teams regularly on Sundays and some play in a representative Canterbury Country team. Ellesmere’s Junior competition has High School and Primary Grades and is run on Saturday mornings. There is also a Mini tennis grade on Friday night at 4.30. Some junior players are selected to play in the Challenger competition which is run by Tennis Canterbury. Malvern plays Saturday mornings and their competition is growing all the time. If you are new to these Country areas and would like to play tennis please contact a club near to you or have a look on both the Ellesmere & Malvern Tennis websites for more information and more contacts. The Malvern Tennis Sub-Association covers the area to the west of Ellesmere – with the significant growth in towns such as West Melton and Darfield and the surrounding countryside their competitions are also expanding and their clubs growing at a fast rate. Twilight tennis on a Thursday night runs from October to March and attracted 30 teams of 4 last summer. As with Ellesmere both senior and juniors players can aim to represent their sub – association and play against the others subassociations as well as seek full Canterbury Country and Canterbury honours. Contacts for some of the Clubs in the Malvern area are also included on this page.

during summer also giving players to play for their school midweek and their club over the weekends. New tournaments held in school time for secondary school students have proved an outstanding success, with the short formats used providing lots of quick-fire matches and introducing many players to playing “tournament tennis” with multiple games on a day rather than just the two matches that interclub and schools tennis provides. Many of these first time tournament players were enticed back to the more traditional tournaments held regularly throughout the year, playing normal formats of “best of three sets” with a match tie break to 10 for a third set for most grades, apart from main draw matches which stay as three traditional full sets.

Roast for 1 hour for medium or 1¼ hours for medium to well done. Remove the meat and vegetables to a serving platter. Tent with foil. Cover with a towel. Stand for 15 minutes before carving. Deglaze the roasting pan with red wine. Use the juices to prepare a sauce or gravy.

Hints for making the most of your roast Ensure the meat is at room temperature before placing it in the oven. Weigh the meat to calculate the cooking time. Use a meat thermometer to take any guesswork out of the cooking time. Cover the roast with foil after removing from the oven. Top with a thick towel and rest for at least 15 minutes (depending on the size) before carving. To help make a dark gravy, lightly brown the flour in a small, dry pan before adding to the pan juices and/or stock. Or place a couple of tablespoons of flour in a corner of the roasting pan.

ell, our time as part of the Shapeshifters crew is wrapping up. It’s been a pretty exciting six months with lots of learning and changes being made. We have all been lucky enough to have a personal trainer to push us to meet our goals and keep us accountable for our exercise routines. Jean has been a great trainer, putting me through regular testing schedules to see the progress that is being made and asking questions to make me think about what I can do to make changes, or making suggestions to what could be done better to get full results.

The six months have been a great period to implement and reinforce the changes that are being made, so it’s not such a daunting task to do myself as I have been doing it for such a time already.

Where to now? Well I have all been set up with some pretty sweet tools to help carry on with the journey I have already begun. Goals have been set and plans have been made to keep on the same track. The six months have been a great period to implement and reinforce the changes that are being made, so it’s not such a daunting task to do myself as I have been doing it for such a time already. The main thing I have learnt over the last six months is to believe in yourself and surround yourself with an amazing support crew who will help you reach your goals. I work with some pretty amazing ladies who, I know, will never let me fall short and will question me if I slip back into old habits.

Well we are nearing the end of the Shapeshifters and it is time to reveal our outcomes.

A

t the beginning of the exercise, we had our photo taken in just our shorts. In a few weeks we are going to do this again and study the results. No, the general public don’t get to see these. Some things just don’t need to be put in the paper. However, I think we will all be pleasantly surprised by the results. From the outside most of you may not see the results, but our bodies are now more toned and less flabby. Further to this, we are now stronger and much fitter, our cardio fitness has increased considerably and we certainly feel healthier. It has also been a whole lifestyle change, with going to the gym three to four times a week being part of the routine. It has been very enjoyable and also quite addictive to the point that you actually feel quite guilty if you don’t go. We are now more conscious of what we eat and drink. Sure, a few treats are okay, but just occasionally – balance is the key. Moving forward we have all decided to continue as members of the Lincoln University Gym. So a huge thanks to Sally and Penelope for their time and effort with Shapeshifters,

keeping us motivated and changing our attitudes towards exercise and food consumption. Thanks also to the other Shapeshifter participants, the Lincoln University Gym and those who organised the whole event.

T

his is the last column as our six-month exercise and nutrition programme comes to an end. I thought, as a final column, it would be good to point out the things I have learned during this time. • Our bodies are amazing machines that can have rapid change in a short span of time, if we invest some time and energy into it. It will hurt at the start but this pain is short-lived. • Everyone is capable of remarkable things – you may just not realise it yet. The only way you will find out is if you try. • If you want to get results, get help from the people who know best. I cannot emphasise enough how much Penelope and Sally have helped. I know I work harder when I have to report to someone. • If I hadn’t done this, I would be in an even worse place than I was when I started. • Workouts don’t need to be hours, minutes are great too. Thirty minutes a day can make a huge difference. Anything is better than nothing. • Never go by just scales. Measure, measure, measure – this gives a far more accurate picture about the changes that are happening. • When it comes to food, use the

80 per cent to 20 per cent rule. Be good 80 per cent of the time. If you want better results, make this percentage more. • Whole foods. Know exactly what you are eating, there is so much hidden in processed food so the easy way to keep track is to eat fresh. • I hate using the grinder machine at the gym (almost vomited), but I love doing most other exercise. Most of all, I love the feeling of being strong in body and mind, and the rush you get when the workout is done. • My new habits are also influencing my daughter. The role modeling I am doing for her will hopefully contribute to her leading a healthy life for her whole life. No feeling is better than seeing her happy when she is exercising with me or making great food choices. • I can push myself far harder than I thought, so never, ever doubt your own ability. I hope this column has provided inspiration to others. I am now going to continue on with this new regimen in life so that I continue to reap the rewards. To all those thinking about doing something similar, just start.

e are at the end of our Shapeshifter journey already. And what a journey! We, at the Recreation Centre, are so honoured to have met, trained and laughed with some amazing people. Testing dates have been set so we can start to see our clients’ results on paper. We are excited to see these results as, visually, it is evident they are going to be very positive. Our Shapeshifter clients have realised how important it is to have a healthy body, and the benefits of exercise mentally and physically are so rewarding. Life after Shapeshifters…many of our clients are staying with us at the Recreation Centre to continue their journey and many already have personal challenges such as to compete in a 90km bike ride. What a fantastic effort by all!

The Lincoln University Recreation Centre would like to shout out a BIG THANK YOU to all the Shape Shifters who had the courage to step forward and take on six months of life changing behaviours and challenges to commence their life long journey of wellbeing and health. We are also incredibly grateful to our wonderful personal trainers and staff who have assisted, encouraged, and supported you and each other during this time of change. If you have been inspired by their stories and success as you have followed them over the last six months then now is the perfect time to come in and see us at the Recreation Centre and discuss how we can assist you on your own journey of change.

Senior A Netball 2015 A mixed group of experienced and young players comprise the Senior A netball team travelling to Timaru for the South Island Secondary Schools’ netball tournament, which will run from Monday 31st August to Thursday 3rd September. “Our season has unfortunately been plagued with illness and injury so we welcome lots of new and enthusiastic players to help boost our numbers at the tournament. It will be a great way to build experience in our players for the future,” says Coach, Marama Lynch.

At the tournament in Timaru, the Lincoln High School team will compete in the A grade which is made up of the top 32 teams. The netball team will play two games a day over four days of the tournament. The 2014 team finished in 22nd place and this year the aim is to secure a finish in the top 16. The team is extremely grateful for the assistance given by all its sponsors and supporters who have financially supported this process. Coach Marama Lynch instructs the team during a break in the recent game against Ashburton College.

1st XI Girls Football 2015 The Lincoln High School Girls 1st XI Football Team will be heading to Ashburton this year to take part in the Gary Sowden Secondary Schools’ Football Tournament. New to the team this year are some talented junior members and coach, Vince Binding.

The players and management would sincerely like to thank all sponsors and supporters in making this trip possible.

They have had a tremendous season led by a great captain Georgia Reese with the result that the team stepped up into the Premier Division1 grade, ranking them as one of the top six secondary teams in Christchurch. The team will be playing fifteen other teams from around New Zealand over the four days of tournament. Last year, the girls put heart and soul into their games making the finals played at ASB Football Park and coming 2nd overall in the event. This year, they are aiming to work their way through to the finals and as always give it their all, which is not surprising for this amazing group of girls who make Lincoln High School proud whenever they are away representing the school.

The Lincoln High School 1st XI Girls Football Team came 5th in this years Girls Premier Div 1.

GARDENING

EDIBLE CLIMBERS Rachel Vogan looks at the productive world of social climbers that are good enough to eat. SOMETIMES we need to be reminded of how multipurpose and functional some plants are. The idea of planting climbers to cover ugly walls, screen views from prying eyes and to protect you from the harsh rays of the sun is nothing new, but choosing edible climbing plants is catching on at a rate of knots. With smaller sections and limited space, maximising all available garden area to feed oneself or family is the only options for those living in apartments, multiplexes and in flats. The more crops you can grow vertically, the larger an outdoor space looks and feels. Harvesting vegetables and fruits without having to bend over is an added bonus, and for me, there is no better way to pick them than at the end of the day with a tipple in hand on a warm evening just before dinner.

gardening without guesswork Question:

I hear the term “mulching” and “mulch” all the time. What is it all about, and why is it so important?

“Mulch” and “Mulching” are certainly very popular terms used in the gardening industry! Mulching is generally a way of improving the soil by adding certain products. It helps to create a better environment for your plants to thrive, helps to retain moisture in the soil, gives a decorative finish and helps to suppress weeds (saving you time on weeding!). Our top selling mulch to improve your soil structure is our Organic Compost, as it helps to add vital nutrients and organisms. This can be applied to the top of your garden, or mix it through your existing soil to rejuvenate it. While this isn’t such an ornamental finish, at Intelligro we have a variety of barks and stones that will give a more decorative look. Our most popular products for this are our Black Beauty Mulch, Eco Mulch, Super Scree and Lime Chip. When applied at a depth of 100mm, these products will give you all the benefits mentioned above!

Essentials:

Kiwifruit

One of the best cover-up fruiting and climbing plants has to be kiwifruit. Whether you like the green, gold or miniature varieties, these are a hardy and reliable option for growing over fences, pergolas, archways and frames. It is important to plant a male and a female variety, as one pollinates the other. In some cases, both are grafted onto the one plant (ensure you check when buying new plants). The vines lose their leaves in winter, so it is a great option for planting over pergolas where winter sun is welcomed with open arms.

SUPPORT

All climbing plants need something to cling to, climb up or through. You could use twine, wire netting, mesh, another plant or tree, a pergola, archway or wigwam to support the growing plant. The list is as long as your imagination. Old wagon wheels look fabulous.

SUN

Compromising on sunlight never pays off. To ensure a maximum harvest, position edible climbers somewhere they will reap the benefits of the sun’s rays. Stalwarts such as kiwifruit, passionfruit and grapes, will cope with their roots in shade, and as long as the stems and branches reach up to the sun, they are happy.

Passionfruit

Care for a little passion, anyone? Passionfruit is adaptable to life in the garden or grown in larger containers or planter boxes. They do need protection from severe cold weather, and plants do grind to a halt in winter though. Once passionfruit has its root system actively growing, it quickly begins to throw out loads of new shoots and growth. To keep them in check, prune after fruiting and as they are a very rampant vine, it pays to be a little ruthless.

MIX AND MATCH

Consider planting your edible climbers in amongst other ornamental climbers such as wisteria or clematis. These more woody types of climbers provide the perfect framework support system for speedy annual climbing edibles like runner beans, gherkins, apple cucumbers and nasturtiums. If soil room is an issue, plant the edible vines in large tubs and containers. This way, it is easy to replenish the soil with goodies and move the plants once they have done there dash.

FlAnders PoPPy Its significant story

100%

A side application of fruit tree fertiliser or citrus fertiliser in spring should set you up for a good crop next year.

Grapes

An oldie but a goodie! Grapes are wonderful long-term options; they provide both bunches of juicy bounty in autumn and loads of leafy, green matter for nine months of the year. They take a few seasons to establish, so a little patience is required with this crop.

Berries

Three of the best climbing options are boysenberry, tayberry and loganberry. Don’t let the thorns put you off, as many of the new hybrids are thornless. These berries require something stable and permanent to support them – a fence, strong trellis or a wall of some sort. The branches are very flexible in the first season or two, so shaping the framework early on will ensure a sturdy plant for seasons to come. Team berries up with runner beans to save on space. For even more colour, scatter some nasturtium seeds around, too.

GARDENING Nasturtium

Edible flowers are a delight to grow. For something that is no fuss and happy to grow in even the most barren of soils, look to nasturtiums. Not only do they provide a riot of colour, the seed pods look and taste remarkably like capers. Use the younger pods to pickle. The plant can become selfsupporting and form mounds on their own, however they look the most impressive when given a little direction and trained along wires and strings. These are annuals; sow each season.

Cucumber

Gherkins make brilliant climbing patio plants. Plant out as soon as the frost departs in rich, free-draining vegetable mix and use double or triple canes to support the stems. The cute, yellow flowers are edible, too, but don’t be tempted to use too many of them as it will limit your gherkin harvest. Remove the older leaves as the season goes on. Apple cucumbers are another good option. Even though all cucumbers climb and crawl, these small, pure-white fruits are slightly sweeter than its green cousins. Plant and treat the same as gherkins.

Hops

Beer anyone? Hops, Humulus lupulus, is an attractive, fastgrowing perennial climber that dies

back in winter. It’s a good option to grow in a large tub, as, left to its own devices in warm regions, it can become invasive. The flowers (hops) are used for brewing and the foliage can be lightly steamed or fried as a green.

Runner beans

The speedy legumes leap into life as soon as the soil warms from mid-spring. Runner beans vary is variety, from the popular, bluepodded ‘King of Blues’, through to the bright-yellow ‘Wonder of Venice’. ‘Painted Lady’ is an old-fashioned heirloom one, with red and white flowers and long green beans, but it’s hard to match the ‘Yard Long’ for length, with each bean being at least 30 to 40cm long. Sow seeds in spring, in situ. They make a perfect option for covering an unsightly, wire-netting fence. Use runner beans to dress up walkways and paths.

Grapes covering a water tank.

Apple cucumbers.

Climbing spinach

As the name suggests, this is a climbing version of Popeye’s favourite vegetable. Often called Malabar spinach, this perennial vine is best suited to the warmest climates or grown indoors. Available as a seed line, it can be treated as an annual and planted each season. Tepees and wigwams or bamboo trellis are all strong enough to support this crop.

Online game for children raises farm

safety awareness

A new free online farm safety game that children can play on smartphones, computers and tablets is the latest innovation in the quest to improve farm safety.

I

ndustry body DairyNZ’s cowbassador, Rosie the Cow, has teamed up with WorkSafe and ACC to create Farm Rules!, an engaging way for primary school children to learn about the risks involved with certain farm activities and how to minimise or avoid them. Farm Rules! has children avoiding surprise dangers while tackling the challenges of farm life. From driving tractors and avoiding cowpats, players learn how to navigate through challenges to win the most points. With bright graphics and plenty of sneaky scenarios, players can become a farmer for a day, moving cows, driving quad bikes and tractors, fixing broken fences and spraying gorse. They have to try and do all the farm work while avoiding surprise dangers. The computer game is being rolled out as part of DairyNZ’s education programme

for children. DairyNZ’s brand marketing manager Andrew Fraser says, he thinks the new game will encourage some interesting conversations between kids and their parents. “We all know how our children very quickly challenge us based on what they have learnt or seen. Children do a lot of their learning online now and games are a great way of interacting with them about various issues. We think we’ll reach a lot of adults with a game like this in a roundabout kind of way. “It will certainly raise awareness and create situations where the kids are advising their parents about what’s a risk and how to stay safe on a farm,” he says. “It’s also a great way to entertain your kids while helping them learn about how to stay safe on a farm.”

Rosie is the cow character DairyNZ uses to help children learn about farming, cows and how milk is produced. “She has her own Facebook page and visits schools and community events. She is the key educator in our schools’ programme, where we provide a range of online resources for teachers that they can use in classrooms to teach everything, from history to science to research skills. “So far we’ve also had more than 5500 children visit

dairy farmers as part of the Rosie’s World Find a Farmer programme, and 900 parents have attended one of those farm visits, too. This is the second computer game we have created and it all helps children, both urban and rural, to learn more about farming and how milk is produced,” Mr Fraser says. The new Farm Rules! game can be played online at www.rosiesworld.co.nz and is also available as an app for Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.

DairyNZ’s brand marketing manager Andrew Fraser says, he thinks the new game will encourage some interesting conversations between kids and their parents.

Solutions to reduce global food waste being sought In 2013, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) agreed to reduce food waste by 10 per cent across the region, and researchers and technical team members are now working towards their 2017 goal of developing effective strategies to address global food waste issues.

A

third of the edible parts of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted. That translates into about 1.3 billion tons per year. Lincoln University associate professor James Morton says reducing food waste is the logical first step in meeting the needs of a growing world population, predicted to reach nine billion by 2050. He recently attended the second of three APEC Multi-Year Project meetings focused on addressing global food waste, where he spoke on the need to measure and reduce wastage in the livestock chain. “Reducing waste and getting the best use out of what we produce makes far more sense than trying to increase food production by about 60 per cent from what it was in 2005, which is what it would take to feed that many people. Producing more food through agriculture has consequences for the environment. At the moment, we are taking more out than we’re putting back in. It’s not sustainable and we’re losing arable land.” Developing countries are most affected by food loss during production and food shortages, with 795 million people estimated to be chronically undernourished. Developed countries are faced with massive food waste at retail and consumption, while dealing with an obesity epidemic affecting about 600 million adults.  Associate professor Morton says finding solutions is difficult when countries have different economies, production methods and natural resources.

“But there are things we can do such as minimising loss in the production process, reducing recalls, improving the cool chain and funding research into making the most use of co-products.” The meat industry is a good example of where New Zealand has reduced losses in production by growing food to more accurate specifications. Retailers catering for consumers who want less fat in their food are willing to pay more for lean meat. Farmers now grow lean animals, resulting in less waste of unwanted fat trimmings. Meat consumption has increased significantly in recent years. “Livestock products offer high-quality protein, so meat is a very important food source,” associate professor Morton says. “Most countries grow livestock to feed their own population. New Zealand and Australia are unique in that most of what is produced is exported. Because of that, waste is not such a concern here in New Zealand, but that waste is happening elsewhere instead – retailers carrying a wide variety of foods to respond to consumer demand and having to discard safe food by ‘best before’ dates to maintain quality standards and consumers with food left on plates and leftovers forgotten in the fridge all lead to high levels of waste.” He believes livestock products are economically and nutritionally valuable, but the high environmental cost of their production means reducing losses is essential. “New Zealand relies on its ‘clean green’ image so it makes economic sense to

reduce the environmental impact of food production here.” Food security is not a concern in Australia or New Zealand, but is a priority in most other countries. APEC leaders see reducing food waste as a primary related task for ensuring confidence in food supply. The Multi-Year Project aims to identify key issues and make policy recommendations around possible solutions and action plans, which will ultimately be provided to all APEC member economies.

he first Duzgo, smaller and narrower than the later models, was built in a farm shed by Rodney Giles and his brother Kevin. They wanted a vehicle that could access even the most difficult parts of their farm and something that would get ‘up’ country to do some deer shooting. Some of the rivers that needed crossing and the terrain that had to be driven over presented some pretty hefty problems for the then current crop of 4WD vehicles. As well the weather in that part of the country could be quite nasty at times and to get to parts of the farm to feed out was nigh on impossible, especially in the really boggy areas. So as needs must, the first Duzgo came to fruition. The chassis was built from box section steel; the body fashioned and turned from flat steel by Rodney and Kevin themselves. The first Duzgos were fitted out with a series of different small engines, from a single cylinder Kohler to the one in Rodney’s garage that sports a two-cylinder 600cc Robin. The drive came via 100E Ford and an Austin Cambridge gearbox, that meant up to 13 forward gears and seven reverse gears were available, so some pretty low ratios ensued. In fact, the whole vehicle was put together with donor parts. It’s not a big machine, and you’d probably call it pretty rustic, but it went, and it did the job they wanted it to do, such as carrying feed to the stock with little effort, Rodney says. The Duzgo Rodney owns is the seventh one built. He has done a return trip from Whataroa to Akaroa and back, averaging around 85kph with one way done on a tank of fuel, the trip taking around six and a half hours. Ten Duzgo in total were built, each one

taking around a month – the first going to a neighbour who marvelled at what the Duzgo could achieve. Kevin left his job to partner in the builds. Everything was done by hand, from setting up the chassis jig, cutting the body panels to painting. Most Duzgos, a name the brothers’ mother came up with, were sold by word of mouth until things got a bit too difficult. The Government’s excise arm stepped in, demanding the guys to pay sales tax for new vehicles, even though everything was made from secondhand parts, so unfortunately, production stopped. The seventh Duzgo sits proudly in its little shed on Rodney’s property. It does get to see the light on the odd occasion, but not as frequently as he would like. Rodney, over the years, has also turned his hand to a number of other inventions, such as making a pill-making machine and a picket profiler, but I reckon that’s not the end of it either, there’s still plenty more he wants to achieve.

ENGINE RECONDITIONING SERVICES

the passion is obvious

A V8 just completed in front of the engine ‘wall of fame”.

Sometimes when you talk to a business owner and employee, there’s real passion for the job. In the case of Evan Were and Andy Hickling at Engine Reconditioning Services, that’s right on the mark.

E

van has been in the trade for 36 years, 24 of those running his own engine reconditioning business. He’s been around, from Invercargill to New Plymouth plying the trade, and for the last four and a half years, he’s been in Tai Tapu. The workshop is in a quiet side

street in the town; the building, although not purpose-built, houses some of the best equipment available gear that was shifted out after the Christchurch quakes, when the original Engine Reconditioning Services premises in St Asaph Street were no longer viable to be in.

A four cylinder engine in the pristine engine assembly room.

Andy oiling pistons ready for reassembly.

Both men fizz at the thought of arriving back at work, no Monday morning blues here! Evan enthuses over the work he does. Both he and Andy take great satisfaction in bringing an old or tired engine back to life. “It’s awesome,” says Evan, “you just can’t describe the feeling.” The company specialises in anything petrol but especially V8s. Key services are engine rebuilding, modification and preparation. It doesn’t matter what size or what it’s to go in – a classic car, rod, drag car, race car or jet boat – the work is all done very professionally with genuine pride and passion. On the bench in the assembly room, ready to be put back together, was a small four-cylinder Toyota engine, so it’s not just V8s but also straight sixes, V6s, flat fours and even V4s – they’re all a challenge for the Engine Reconditioning Services team. At Engine Reconditioning Services, they

provide a great set of services, from reboring and resleeving, surface milling, grinding, balancing, full head reconditioning (this includes seating valves, grinding and inserts), black light crack testing, to rod refurbishing and assembly. And all this done by a staff of two experts in their field, who use top products and related services. The business is aligned to the New Zealand Engine Reconditioners Association. Engine Reconditioning Services take pleasure in hand-built, personalised engines built up to your requirements. Advice, quotes and timeframes are given and met. Come and visit Evan and Andy anytime to watch the progress of your engine and browse the engine ‘wall of fame’ in the workshop. Contact Evan or Andy at Engine Reconditioning Services on 03 329 6912, or call in at 28 School Road, Tai Tapu.

MOTORING

Plenty of choice in Holden’s Cruze It’s only just over halfway through the year, and looking at my diary I’ve spent more time this year in a Holden Cruze than any other car. Ordinarily, that’s something I’d reflect on at year’s end, but the reason is that Cruze is doing well for Holden New Zealand, new models just keep on landing, and the mid-size sedan, hatchback and wagon has an appealing position in the marketplace. Notwithstanding that, I drove a Cruze in Queensland for a week during the time I took my wife and daughter to the Gold Coast for annual leave, I’ve driven the three engine variants and all grades of specification. The latest to come my way is my favourite, the turbocharged 1.6-litre SRi V hatchback. It is a combination of what is sporty, and a high level of fitment which a few years ago you’d only find in luxury specification cars. The Cruze SRi V is loaded with goodies, more so now than ever because it has just had a recent upgrade to include voice recognition MyLink infotainment system, rain sensing wipers and suede seat inserts; these on top of a car which was already well specced with leather trim (heated front seats), satellite navigation and enough safety kit to earn it a five-star Australasian New Car Assessment Program safety rating.

SPECIFICATIONS

That’s a high level of kit, and if you take into account its price of $39,990 then it’s also a good value purchase. Incidentally, the Cruze series starts at $30,990. I’m quite nostalgic about Holden’s Australian manufacturing operation, so I reckon now is a good time to buy Cruze, it will also be affected when that facility closes in 2017, Cruze will then most likely be sourced directly from South Korea. In the interim, you can guarantee that the changes and upgrades Cruze is going through now will be enough to keep it fresh for its lifecycle. Build quality is high and the Cruze provides you with an entertaining drive, especially in turbocharged form. Therein lies a bit of a secret. Not only does the 1598cc unit pump out feisty power outputs – 132kw and 230Nm – it has been engineered to use fuel effectively. Holden claims a 7.9-litre per 100km (36mpg) combined cycle average which equates well to the 8.9l/100km (32mpg) during a four-day evaluation. At 100km/h

Price: Holden Cruze SRi V, $39,990. Dimensions: Length,4518mm; width, 1797mm; height, 1477mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, front-wheel-drive, 1598cc, 132kW, 230Nm, sixspeed automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 8.3sec.

HOLDEN CRUZE SRi V: Multitude of engine and specification options. works freely in Cruze with little the engine turns over slowly at harshness and excitement, which 2100rpm which has beneficial provides an involving driving effect on fuel usage, sipping just experience, and the right amount 8l/100km (35mpg). Drive is sent through a six-speed of power for all conditions. Holden are pitching the Cruze automatic gearbox, the engine and SRi V as a sporty model. As a contransmission work fluidly togethsequence, it gets a rear suspension er. There are noticeable shifts, but ratio changes are smooth and they upgrade to make it more dynamically capable when quick corners are structured so that acceleration are presented. The rear end gets a is ushered in adequately. For the record, the Cruze in this form will Watts linkage system which conmake 100km/h from a standstill in trols suspension movement to a greater degree, and the load forced 8.3sec, which is dynamic enough upon it by the body’s gravitational to keep reminding the driver that change. something different sits under the Sitting on sticky and low profile bonnet.

to increased driving dynamics immensely. There is strong feel at the steering wheel, and accuracy and balance has been a high development priority. This from a car which has spring and damper rates which have been engineered both for comfort and handling ability. The Cruze is far from compromised in either factor. And while it is serving to prove how capable it is as a genuine all round everyday vehicle, the Cruze in its many forms will tempt with is price and efficiency. In its latest iteration, it combines the best of South Korean design and manufacturing finesse, along with the assembly operation and development in Australia for down under conditions. If you add all that together, you end up with a car that sits well in New Zealand. I’m sure it won’t be long before another Cruze finds its way up my driveway.

Warm to the core Welcome to one of the least sexy components of home design – insulation. If it’s been done properly, you won’t even notice it’s there, whereas in the middle of winter you will definitely notice its absence – moisture on the windows, drafts and even mould.

I

nsulation will improve your quality of life by making your home more comfortable and healthier, and in the long run saves you money by reducing ongoing heating costs. If the house you are renovating is going to be your ‘forever home’, every cent you spend will be worth it. If it’s an investment you intend to live in while you make improvements and then flick off at a profit before retirement, you need to be more calculating in your approach; some types of insulation will add to its value, some you may never see a return on investment. There are a number of other elements that lead to the right insulation choice: • Where you live. Insulating for the same level of comfort in the south of the country in general is higher. Recommended ‘R values’ for new homes in the North Island, excluding the Central Plateau, are lower than for the South Island (and Central Plateau). Where the house is situated is also important. For example, are you in a valley with limited sunlight hours, shaded by neighbours’ trees when the sun is lower in winter, or situated on a

south-facing slope? Such situations have a major effect on how warm the house is. • The age of the dwelling. Since the 1970s, regulations have gradually become more stringent and the newer the house, the less work will need doing. Unless it’s been done retrospectively, older houses will be cold, cold, cold. • The level of renovation you are planning. Some work, such as adding an extension, will require you to meet modern standards. In this sort of instance, meeting the building code isn’t always the same as being effective. Unless it’s been isolated from the rest of the house, heat retained in your new extension can be lost through to the older part of the house. You need to think about this before your house purchase; don’t just see the recent paint and the new kitchen and bathroom. I love open homes, and I love old cottages, and at one house I visited recently, the renovation looked great – new kitchen in a new extension, great colour scheme and new carpet throughout. A quick bounce up and down in the corners of the old part of the

RIGHT FIRST TIME: Before you start, plan and measure, measure, measure.

house, however, indicated problems with the piles, a look around the switchboard showed some pretty old wiring, and, on that basis, I would guess nothing much had been done towards insulating it either. If you’re going to put in the insulation yourself, also consider this: improperly installed insulation is less effective. For example, Pink Batts claim that a 2mm gap will reduce the insulation value of that batt by 50 per cent. It can also be

dangerous – care needs to be taken around light fittings as there’s a fire risk, and a number of people have died installing the no longer recommended foil underfloor insulation by putting a staple through a live electrical cable. Heat isn’t the only thing for which you can insulate. If your child is a budding musician, your partner is a death-metal aficionado or you live next to a motorway, you can mitigate the effects by insulating against noise, too.

AN ARCHITECTURAL FEEL sun and light, an aim of Fraemohs Homes enabling energy efficiency. “This is why we have a raked ceiling with mono-pitched roof. It also gives an architectural feel,” says Paul Ferguson. Space is utilised well in this house with minimum hallway and careful design, making the living area the central access point. There is underfloor heating and many extras like cedar cladding and linear; however, Fraemohs will transform any design to fit the budget, tastes and building codes, including constructing gable and hiproofed houses. Fraemohs Homes’ Lincoln show home is open 12pm to 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday.

Te Whariki subdivision’s show home village at Lincoln has a newcomer, Fraemohs Homes, who are new to the Selwyn show home set.

ood-based company Fraemohs Homes has demonstrated their versatility with this regularly framed fully-lined house that has a high architectural feel without the architectural costs. The 219-square-metre Clearwater four-bedroom design is specified at the higher end of the market, making it a must to view. Central to the house is its living area with a separate lounge off to one side and galley kitchen that looks out over the dining and living, to the patio and garden beyond. A large deck is accessed from both living and lounge by triple and double sliders respectively. The lounge has an illusion Flamboyant glass gas fire placed at eye level, which provides good heat and makes a relaxing room slightly away from the bustle of the family. In the kitchen, there is a wide cupboard

style pantry at one end with additional storage and fridge space at the other. The cooktop sits amidst a fantastically long bench and opposite a generous island with sink that faces the living area, making it a superb family and entertainer’s kitchen accentuated by the plush fittings, soft-touch no-handle cabinetry, high-quality appliances and hand stone benchtop with waterfalls in the stone going right to the floor. The main bedroom has a generous walk-in robe accessing the en suite, giving added privacy while double sliders lead to a separate deck, allowing Mum and Dad a quiet coffee or wine away from the children. There are three other bedrooms with one located at the other end of the house, making it an excellent guest bedroom with a separate toilet beside. This is well-placed for visitor use or easy access when in the garage or outside. Another bathroom with toilet is

by the other bedrooms. All bathrooms have been manufactured off-site and include quality fittings, fixtures and fully tiled showers. These units are then delivered to the site as complete shrunk wrapped units. “This maintains a high quality and speeds up the build time as less tradespeople visit the house on-site,” advises Paul Ferguson from Fraemohs Homes. The laundry itself has an appealing strip window overlooking the driveway. There is a full length bench, room for both washing machine and clothes dryer, and amazing storage that includes two full-sized closets. This is a light, bright house due to its oversized windows and doors that maximise
