Dad fined for letting 10-year-old drive car

Brave Harry beats cancer –p3

• Erratic driving between Lincoln and Tai Tapu BY TOM DOUDNEY A 10-year-old Lincoln boy could barely see over the steering wheel as he drove his father’s unwarranted, unregistered car erratically along a 100km/h stretch of Lincoln Tai Tapu Rd. When police caught up with the boy’s 44-year-old father, who had been in the passenger seat at the time, he said he had been teaching his son to drive. Police were called by other drivers who saw the boy driving and regularly crossing the centre line on Saturday between 4-5pm. Sergeant Franco Lovrich said the man’s actions were “absolutely foolish” and had put himself, the boy and other road users at risk of a serious crash. “There is a time and place for teaching children to drive but a

public road, and at that age, is not it,” he said. “Witnesses said he could barely see over the steering wheel.” Police used the reported registration number of the old-model Toyota Corolla to locate the man’s address and arrived there at the same time as he and the boy were returning. The man was driving at this stage but admitted letting his son get behind the wheel. He was fined $400 for assisting an unlicensed person to drive and $300 for the car’s warrant and registration being out of date. Sergeant Lovrich said police had spoken sternly to the man who said he was sorry. The incident is one of many cases of underage drivers being caught behind the wheel, both in New Zealand and overseas. • Turn to page 2

CHANGING LANDSCAPE: Earthworks for the district’s next high school, Rolleston College, are well advanced and work on the foundations was expected to begin this week. The work has transformed the area north of the Selwyn Aquatic Centre into one big construction site. Construction is scheduled to wrap up by the end of December 2016, with the college to open in 2017. PHOTO: SNOWGRASS SOLUTIONS

▌READER’S ▌ LETTER With the impending decision to loan $8 million of public funds to private business concerns (Central Plains Water), can the mayor confirm for ratepayers whether the district council holds any other loans to private concerns currently and, if so, who are they? It will be most interesting to note which councillors move and second the motion to establish the loan for more corporate welfare to be provided by the ratepayer. This district council continues to increase rates well in excess of the Consumer Price Index, but can always find $8

million to loan to private concerns. The district council mantra was ‘user pays’, but now appears to be ‘let the ratepayer eat cake!’ – Terance Hancock, Lincoln District council chief executive David Ward responds: At June 30, 2015, council has loans with two organisations that are private concerns totalling $2.6 million. Both loans are at interest rates generating returns that recognise the risk to the council and are secured by registered documents on titles

HAVE YOUR SAY If you have a view on a current issue, email tom. doudney@starmedia.kiwi or security registers. A further seven loans totalling $327,874 have been made to community organisations. The interest rates on those loans reflect the equivalent of what the council could receive from cash deposits and generally do not have a security interest. The resolution adopted by the council on August 12 included ‘that council engages in a con-

It should be noted that the councillors were very clear in their discussion on the resolution that community feedback was an important part of the final decision-making process. The Central Plains Water loan, if approved, will be at an interest rate of 10 per cent.

Brave Harry wins battle with cancer BY TOM DOUDNEY

A boy who lost his mother to cancer when he was just 22-monthsold has won his own battle against the disease. However, Harry Boaz, who will be three in November, will have to be tested regularly for the rest of his life to make sure it doesn’t return. Heather Boaz (right) died of breast cancer in September last year, aged 37. The Rolleston mother had neglected her own health to focus on her unborn baby, Harry, after a scan revealed a tumour at the base of his spine when she was four months pregnant. Harry underwent surgery to remove a tumour the size of his head, just 24 hours after his birth. Mrs Boaz was on her deathbed when Harry’s father, Andrew Boaz, received news that their son’s cancer had returned. He made the difficult decision not to tell his wife before she died. Now, after a battle which has spanned the best part of a year, test results show Harry is cancer-free. Mr Boaz said the result was huge

▌IN ▌ BRIEF Social housing

An initiative to provide social housing in Leeston took a step forward on Saturday with the first sod being turned for the Abbeyfield Ellesmere project. The $2.4 million-plus complex is being built on land adjacent to Leeston Park. The building site was cleansed by Ngai Tahu representatives from Rununga Ngati Moki and Ellesmere ministers blessed the site. An Ellesmere building consortium has been awarded the tender for the project, with site work and building due to begin within the next six weeks. The complex is expected to be open by early 2016.

Buskers coming GOOD NEWS: Harry Boaz (left), with dad Andrew and brother Flynn, is cancerfree after a long battle. ​ for the family of three, which also includes Harry’s brother Flynn, 6. During his treatment, which included chemotherapy, Harry had been low on energy, needed a lot of rest and suffered from bouts of vomiting. Now, he was healthy and active again. “He’s loving it,” Mr Boaz said. “He’s full of energy and it makes you realise how crook he was. His hair is growing back [after the

chemotherapy] and he is going to have his first hair cut soon.” After all the family had been through, the diagnosis was “a bit of light at the end of the tunnel” and Mr Boaz was looking forward to doing more of the normal things his son liked to do, such as playing on the trampoline and going to the park. He said Mrs Boaz would have been hugely pleased about the

good news which had justified her sacrifice. “It’s just a relief for everybody. It has been a long journey.” Because of the risk of Harry’s cancer returning, he would still need to have blood tests every month for the next year and an MRI scan every six months. As he grew older, if he remained cancerfree the testing would become less frequent.

The 2016 World Buskers Festival will see performers entertaining crowds in Rolleston next year. Buskers will perform in several venues outside of Christchurch as part of a ‘buskers roadshow.’ Timaru, Ashburton, Kaiapoi and Lyttelton are also expected to get performances.

Music award for pupil Prebbleton School pupil Tim Van Herpt, 10, picked up an award for his bass guitar playing at the Canterbury finals of Rockshop Bandquest. The music contest for intermediate and primary students was held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday last week. Tim won the Rocksolid bassist award for his efforts as part of the band TNT.

SEPTEMBER 4 EARTHQUAKE – FIVE YEARS ON

Greendale School involved in commemorations BY TOM DOUDNEY

DAMAGE: Homebush as it was before the earthquake and afterwards.

Quake anniversary a day of quiet remembrance at Homebush BY TOM DOUDNEY Five years after the historic Homebush homestead was destroyed by the September 4, 2010, earthquake, owner Louise Deans says she has struggled to put the event behind her. “I don’t think you ever can. I think it’s a life-changing event that doesn’t stop happening.” Mrs Deans said the “traumatic” day and its aftermath had caused the family, including herself, a great amount of stress. She, her late husband Jim, her daughter and her daughter’s partner were asleep in the house when the earthquake struck, leaving it in ruins. Miraculously, they all escaped from the building without injury.

“Because it was dark, we really had no idea of the extent of the damage until we came round when it was light. Once we saw it, we realised just how lucky we had been.” She expected the anniversary would be a day of quiet remembrance for her. “I think that it’s like when somebody dies and you remember the anniversary of that death. It’s a relief when [the day] is over.” Mrs Deans was very happy with how the new house, designed by architect Ian Athfield, had turned out. She did not regret the decision not to rebuild the old homestead. “The old house was very big. It would have cost a huge amount of money to do and would have taken far longer and it also wasn’t a safe

way to build,” she said. “The advice we got was that with time and money you can do anything but in the end it would be a new house anyway. So we thought if it was going to be a new house, let’s be bold and build something really exciting that will survive the next few hundred years.” A number of other buildings on the farm had been restored and it was hoped work could begin soon on the last one. However, Mrs Deans wasn’t sure how long that work would take to complete. “These are really old buildings. They are all 1870s and it’s not easy to keep them protected because they are category one heritage buildings, so they have to be done really carefully.”

Broken crockery and original songs will feature heavily when the community at the centre of the September 2010 earthquake marks the five years since that fateful day. In many ways the earthquake put Greendale on the map for people outside the district, with images of crooked tree lines, fences and roads caused by the ruptured fault line splashed across the media. The school will hold an open day from noon to 2.30pm and its 34 children will sing two songs about the earthquake composed specially for the event by Rowan Taylor, a musician who lives in the Leeston area. The children will also be putting together a mosaic wall, along with West Melton artist Sarah-Alice Miles, using some crockery which was broken when the earthquake struck. Afterwards, there will be a gathering at the local Greendale Hall at 4pm, where the children will perform again followed by a toast. This will be followed by a shared barbecue tea. Greendale School principal Carey-Anne Hamilton said the school had jumped at the chance to perform the songs. “We had recently taken part in the Anzac parade and I think they really enjoyed the children’s singing, so that was why they asked us

The children were delighted,” she said. The fifth anniversary has coincided with the recent formation of the Greendale Community Trust, which will provide financial assistance to maintain and restore community facilities. The trust’s first project will be the replacement of the Greendale Church roof. Future projects earmarked for the trust include the restoration of the T W Adams Arboretum as well as increased maintenance work on the Greendale Hall and the cricket pavilion at the Greendale Domain.

Slow progress at church The chairman of a community trust set up to help Hororata recover from the September 2010 earthquake has decried “the politics” surrounding the rebuild of community buildings. Hororata Community Trust chairman Richard Lang said there were still a number of community buildings damaged in the earthquake that the community wished to see rebuilt. “There is a level of frustration in the community surrounding the politics that are delaying these projects moving forward,” Mr Lang (above) said. The trust is working with the Hororata Parish vestry and the Anglican Church Property Trust to broker a way forward to repair the St John’s stone church which was built about 1910. The repair is expected to cost millions. “Progress has been slow surrounding the St John’s Church rebuild. However, the important fact to focus on right now is that discussions are happening and all parties want to see the church restored. It is not visible progress but it is progress.”

Choosing The Perfect Summer Dress IN LIMBO: The inside of the damaged St John Church in Hororata. Mr Lang said the community had hoped that the earthquake-damaged Hororata Hall could be replaced with a more modern building. However, indications were that the district council was more likely to have it repaired as it was, due to the expense. District council earthquake recovery manager Douglas Marshall said the hall repairs were expected to cost $74,000. Mr Lang said that while the community waited for progress, the trust had looked for other ways of supporting locals. The Hororata Highland Games was a highlight of what it had achieved in the past five years. “The trust formed with the vision to provide the resources to promote, foster and develop Hororata and its wider community. I believe we are fulfilling this vi-

sion but in a different way to what we originally thought,” Mr Lang said. “The trust has taken on an umbrella role in the community, supporting volunteer groups to achieve their objectives by providing resource, guidance on strategy, promotion and structure.” It had also invested in signage around the district, donated to three local primary schools for swimming pool upgrades, donated daffodil bulbs to schools to engage children in beautifying their townships and created a website to create an online presence for community groups and businesses. The trust is about to launch a heritage project which it has been working on with a community group for the last six months. The first stage of the project will see a visitors’ guide to the heritage of Hororata and beyond brochure published.

Repairs mostly completed

While much of Christchurch still resembles a construction zone, the majority of earthquake repairs to Selwyn’s infrastructure have been completed. However, while repairs to roads and wastewater systems were carried out within months of the September 2010 earthquake, damage to community facilities such as halls, community centres and cemeteries has taken longer to fix. All earthquake damaged roads were repaired by June 2011 with the exception of the Sabys Rd bridge which was on the boundary of

Fashion Quarterly from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda

Christchurch. Repairs to the bridge were completed in February 2013. Repair work to quake damaged water and waste water systems was completed by the end of 2010 and further damage to these systems following the February 2011 earthquake was not significant. The September 2010 earthquake hit many of the district’s cemeteries hard, although most headstone repairs have now been completed. The remaining cemeteries where work is still to be completed and will be finished by

2016 are Bishops Corner, Killinchy, Ellesmere Public, South Malvern, Kirwee, Kimberley, Waddington, Kowai Pass and Prebbleton cemeteries. Following the earthquakes, repair work or complete replacements were necessary for 69 community centres, halls, toilet blocks or swimming pools. Earthquake recovery manager Douglas Marshall said most of these repairs or replacements had now been completed, with plans for other rebuilds such as to Dunsandel Community Centre now under way.

‘Famous for their roasts!’

summer fashion has arrived in stores and is ready to go so now is the time to get in early and choose a gorgeous summer dress. Whether for an occasion or just to wear casually, there are a multitude of styles to suit all body shapes. Shift DreSS This style is timeless and flattering. Be sure to choose a silhouette that skims the outline of the body and in a fabric that flatters. Avoid flimsy jersey knits or silk if you have a bit of tummy as these fabrics tend to highlight this area. PrinceSS cut Especially flattering for pear and apple shapes. This style draws the eyes lengthwise down the seams of the dress and produces a slimming effect.

Maxi DreSSeS Choose a smaller print in your maxi dress if you are not very tall. This style looks great on most bodyshapes, especially women with a long torso. maxis can also create feminine curves on those with a more straight up and down figure type. Sheath DreSS This slim close fitting style can enhance most body shapes so long as you choose the correct size so the dress isn’t worn too tight. Also choosing a neckline that flatters is important. Hourglass figures can show off their curves in a sheath style dress and this style always looks

sophisticated.

Houses in line for awards

IN FULL VOICE: West Melton School pupils including eight-year-old Devon Aylward (front left), sang their hearts out in the Kids for Kids concert held at Christchurch’s Air Force Museum. The theme this year was ‘Slice of Heaven’ and featured Jackie Clarke and Nathan King. The show featured a range of classic New Zealand songs. Devon was singing Love in a Fowl House. The pupils practiced for several months and were excited to showcase their singing with 15 other schools on the night. Lincoln Primary School and Prebbleton School also sent pupils to the event.

IN GOOD COMPANY: This Rolleston house built by JD Homes is one of two in Selwyn which have made the list of 100 finalists in the Registered Master Builders House of the Year competition. It is in the Nulook new home $650,000 - $1 million category. The other Selwyn home to have made the list is a Tai Tapu house, known for its castle-like appearance (below), which is in the Westpac new home over $2 million category. The results will be announced at a gala dinner in Auckland on November 14.

Zone changes for Darfield HS The loss of West Melton is likely to be the biggest change to Darfield High School’s enrolment zone when Rolleston College opens in 2017. Darfield High School principal James Morris said the school had between 100 and 120 students coming from West Melton in any given year. The school has about 800 students. The proposed new enrolment zone would see the boundary shifted back from Chattertons Rd and West Melton Rd to Calders Rd

and Sandy Knolls Rd. The change would mean that from 2017, West Melton residents would not have the automatic right to enrolment at Darfield, although they could still apply for out-of-zone enrolment. Siblings of students enrolled in 2016 would continue to be able to enrol as in zone students. Mr Morris said it was hard to tell what impact the new enrolment zone would have on the school’s roll considering that the population in Darfield and Kirwee were increasing at the same time.

He believed the roll would be similar in coming years to its current level. Mr Morris said only about a third of students in West Melton currently attended Darfield High School, with the rest attending other private or state schools, often in Christchurch. There will be a meeting at the West Melton Hall on September 17, at 7.30pm, to discuss the proposed new enrolment zone. Questions and feedback can be sent to admin@ darfield.school.nz until September 20.

Scouts rev up fundraising for jamboree

SCRUBBING UP WELL: Cameron Pritchard and Matthew Hattrill were part of a Rolleston Scouts group washing cars in the Rolleston New World car park. They weren’t just doing good deeds – the group was fundraising to send a contingent of 36 Scouts and 10 leaders to a jamboree in Renwick, near Blenheim, in December next year. They raised $1600 with the car wash, bringing their overall total so far to $3000. The cost to get each Scout to the jamboree is $1200 and there will be extra costs for equipment.

ON THEIR BIKES: Leeston’s JT Mailau, 5, and Rolleston’s Isla McKay, 6, were among the first to enjoy a ride on the Lincoln to Rolleston cycleway after it was completed last week. The $1.4 million cycleway was funded by the Government’s Urban Cycleways Fund, as well as the New Zealand Transport Agency and the district council. It runs along Lowes, Lincoln Rolleston and Boundary Rds. From Lincoln, cyclists can connect to the existing Rail Trail path which runs from Lincoln to Christchurch and Little River. The district council is planning to develop more cycleways within the next few years, connecting Glentunnel and Coalgate (to be completed in 2015/2016), Leeston and Dunsandel (2016/2017) and Rolleston and Templeton (2018/2019).

GRASSROOTS SPORT

Refs wanted for tournament BY TOM DOUDNEY Two weeks out from the start of a children’s football tournament featuring up to 36 teams, there is one important thing missing – referees. The Prebbleton Soccer Club is hosting the football component of the Koru Games which will take place from September 15-17. The games are staged at a variety of Selwyn venues and feature teams of year 7 and 8 pupils from South Island schools. As well as football, they all feature rugby sevens, basketball, lawn bowls, netball, swimming, table tennis, touch and volleyball. Prebbleton Soccer Club president Shannon Gilmore said they were still well short of the number of referees they needed for the football games, which will be staged at Prebbleton Reserve over the three days of the tournament. They only had five referees so far, and were looking for about 10 more. “Refereeing is not something to be scared of, it’s something to be embraced and it’s actually quite enjoyable,” Mr Gilmore said. “People instantly think ‘oh I can’t referee’ but they really don’t need to know much. The rules are simple and easy to learn. All they need to be able to do is to be able to talk to a group of people. If they can do that they can be a referee.” Games could be be played on up to 18 pitches at a time.

FRIENDLY: Children playing in last year’s Koru Games football tournament at Prebbleton Reserve. Mr Gilmore said pitches would be small and game times short, so it would not be very physically demanding. People would not need to be available for the whole tournament, anyone who could just do a morning or afternoon would still be able to contribute. He believed it might suit someone retired, on leave from work or anyone with an interest in football who was available. Mr Gilmore said he had asked Mainland Football if it could provide some referees but so far there had been no indication that it could, which was “disappointing.” Mainland Football referee development officer Wayne Stapley said he had put the message out to referees asking if any were available for the event but was not yet sure if any would be. It was difficult to provide referees during the week because people

had work or study commitments, he said. Selwyn Sports Trust executive officer Michael Wilson said finding enough referees was a “bit of a struggle” across all sports but football and netball were the sports in greatest need. Prebbleton is hosting the football component for the second year in a row after the inaugural Koru Games was held last year. •Anyone who is interested in volunteering as a football referee can phone Mr Gilmore on 027 579 8811. Full training is given. Toilet and changing facilities, lunch and shelter will be provided. •Anyone interested in volunteering as a referee for one of the other sports at the Koru Games can phone Mr Wilson on 021 967 686. Information about the various sports and where they will be played is online at selwynsportstrust.org.nz

Uni claim title Lincoln University have claimed the Christchurch Premier Netball title after a tight 44-43 win over Kereru in the final at Pioneer Stadium. Coach Bev Gordon said her side probably laid the foundations for the win in the second quarter, which they finished with a six goal lead, but admitted to watching the clock as the gap closed dramatically to just one goal. She attributed the win to having a stronger squad than she has had in previous years and praised the efforts of the first year players and captain Liz Hayman, who was “fantastic and led by example.” She said her players were hungrier than in the last two years when they had lost in the final. “They had a bit more fire in their bellies,” she said, and described it as a complete team effort. The B side, however, lost by one goal to their Kereru counterparts in the Premier B final, going down by 4039.

Soldiers of Selwyn Making it through to the end Celebrating those who died in World War 1 With SelWyn librarieS www.selwynlibrary.co.nz

Today, the Selwyn Times concludes its weekly series, Soldiers of Selwyn, marking the centenary of World War 1. The conflict 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. as an outpatient at Christchurch Rifleman David Balloch                                    David Balloch was born at Dun- while residing at Dunsandel.

The hard conditions took a toll and on July 11 he was sent to hospital in Gaza, sick with malaria. After being discharged on August 22, he returned to the Mounted Rifles and embarked for the Dardenelles from Alexandria on November 27, 1918. Hampton was again admitted to hospital in Chanak, at the entrance to the Sea of Marmara, with influenza on December 9 and moved to Constantinople where he was declared dangerously ill on Christmas day. He died on December 28, aged 24, and was buried the next day at the Chanak Consular cemetery not far from Gallipoli. In New Zealand, Hampton is remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Leeston plaque and the Southbridge School Roll of Honour. In 1919, his brother Dudley named his new born second son Frederick Selwyn. Private George Lawrence Crossen George Lawrence Crossen was born at Brookside on November 15, 1893, to Thomas and Ellen Crossen. He was working as a farm labourer in Kirwee before enlisting on October 18, 1915. He had previous military experience having served with 13th Regiment. Crossen was assigned to 9th Reinforcements Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company, and embarked for Suez on January 8, 1916. As he was suffering from measles, after disembarking he was sent to the New Zealand Isolation camp at Zeitoun, arriving February 9, 1916. On February 25 he was admitted to No 4 Auxiliary Hospital at Heliopolis and was not discharged to duty until March 9. Crossen joined the 1st Battalion at Ismailia on March 18 and shortly after this he embarked for France. A notation on his record shows that he was attached to the mayor for fire duties at Amentiers between August 1 and August 19. During fighting at the Somme, on September 27, Crossen suffered a severe wound to his elbow which led to him being evacuated to England. He was admitted to the Royal Victoria Hospital at Netley on October 3 and later transferred to the No 1 New Zealand General Hospital at Brockenhurst on January 2, 1917. On January 30, Crossen was

classed as unfit and then embarked for New Zealand on March 18. A medical board was held in Christchurch on May 29 and the findings were that a piece of shrapnel had destroyed his right elbow. In the words of the medical report “the lower end of the humerus was pulverised.” His hand was limp, meaning that the right arm was useless. The disability was permanent. He was sent to Coronation Hospital in Christchurch and during this time was exposed to Phthisis (tuberculosis). It was this that killed him on October 13, 1919, aged 26. Crossen is buried in Lincoln Cemetery and remembered on the Rolleston Roll of Honour. Lance Corporal Arthur Leslie Cooper Arthur Leslie Cooper was born in Christchurch on May 3, 1891, to Arthur and Clara Jane Cooper. He was working as a farm labourer at Springston before enlisting on May 29, 1915. Cooper was assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade, 2nd Battalion, and embarked for Egypt on October 9. During the voyage he was fined five days’ pay for smoking and carrying his rifle slung while on sentry duty. After arrival he joined the 3rd Rifle Brigade and proceeded to Ismailia on January 17, 1916. He was admitted to hospital briefly at Ismailia in February. Cooper embarked for France from Alexandria on April 6, 1916. While in action on July 22 he suffered a wound to his scalp and was admitted to No 8 Stationary Hospital for treatment. He was back at the depot at Etaples a week later and rejoined his unit on August 7. On September 15 he received a shell wound to his side but, after treatment, rejoined his unit on September 20. On May 23, 1917, Cooper was sent to hospital sick. Taken up by the field ambulance with a headache by the time he got to No 13 Field Hospital it was called ‘debility’ and then at the time he boarded the hospital ship St Patrick it was diagnosed as ‘trench fever’. This is a disease borne by body lice that was first recognised in the trenches of World War 1, when it is estimated to have affected more than a million people. Cooper was admitted to No 1 General Hospital at Brockenhurst on July 2 and then the Convalescent Hospital at Hornchurch on September 4. Further investigation showed that he had chronic pulmonary tuberculosis and the

medical board placed him on the unfit roll on November 14. He embarked for New Zealand on December 24 and was discharged on July 16, 1918, as no longer physically fit for service. Cooper died at the Cashmere Sanatorium, Christchurch, on June 28, 1920. He is buried in Sydenham Cemetery, Christchurch, and remembered on the Springston and Ashburton war memorials. Private Albert Valentine Buchly           Albert Valentine Buchly was born at Halswell, Christchurch, on June 28, 1894, to Albert and Emma Buchly. He was working on the family farm at Brookside before enlisting on October 5, 1916. He had military experience with the 13th Regiment with which he was still serving. Buchly was assigned to 22nd Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Regiment, C Company. After training at Trentham, where he had a 15 day bout of influenza and pleurisy, he embarked for England on February 16, 1917. After arriving in France, he joined the 1st Battalion Canterbury Infantry, in the field on June 19, 1917. Buchly was admitted sick to hospital just before Christmas on December 22, 1917, with diarrhoea and debility. It was not until January 20, 1918, that he was well enough again to march in to camp at Abeele, west of Ypres. There he was assigned to the Entrenching Battalion and joined them in the field on March 27. However, on April 13, he was once again admitted to hospital, this time with scabies, before rejoining the battalion on April 17. On September 6, Buchly suffered a gunshot wound to his hand and neck. He was hospitalised in England for several months before being sent back in New Zealand, arriving on January 29, 1919. Buchly was sent to Cashmere Hospital for treatment. His final discharge was on April 28, 1920. He died on August 25, 1924. It was felt that his death was due to war service and his name was added to the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Irwell plaque. Buchly is buried in the cemetery of St James Anglican Church, Christchurch. • Selwyn Libraries welcomes your feedback or any information you can provide regarding these soldiers.

GARDENING

When time is of the essence Want to compost but just don’t have the time? Have the time, but haven’t a clue where to start? Welcome to carefree composting, the fast and furious, utterly fail-proof art of turning almost everything you normally throw out into a rich pile of garden goodness. Diana Noonan makes it easy for gardeners on the go. But I don’t have space for a compost pile! Yes you do! A 90 sq cm plot of flat(ish) outdoor surface is all that’s required. Any surface will do, from grass to concrete. A sunny spot is great, but shade will be fine, too. Do I actually have to, like, build something? If you want to, why not? If you don’t, no problem. If you’re building a structure, make it no smaller

So, dig out your newspapers, coffee grinds, teabags, cardboard cartons, wrecked cotton jeans, the contents of the vacuum cleaner bag, food scraps, the rattan wastepaper basket with the hole in the bottom, the takeaway coffee cup, even the hair you clipped from the poodle.

than a cube with sides measuring 90cm (but bigger is better). Sides can be made of recycled wood or roofing iron, wire netting wrapped around poles, old concrete blocks, or even ex-land agent’s hoardings and political billboards (turn the politicians’ faces inwards).

If building isn’t your thing, and you can afford one of those snazzy, lidded, black polythene bins, go for it! Alternatively, make your pile against the side of a clay bank or concrete wall, or go freestyle and build straight up from the ground. Compost can get pretty hot, so don’t

Prep Time!! With the weather on the improve, it certainly makes it more enticing to head outside and get into the garden. Now is a great time to prepare for the spring planting and get your garden into shape. Weeding, digging through compost and adding vital nutrients are all on the task card at this time of the year. If you are starting a raised planter box or garden bed, now is the time to get your products so you are ready to plant out your spring crops. When purchasing seeds, make sure you read the packets carefully, and ensure that you are looking at the right zone. Seeds and plants respond differently in the different climates, and Canterbury is on the cooler side of the temperature range. If you are looking to put plants in, check with your local garden centre about what varieties are ready at the time you are looking to plant. Remember there are still plenty of opportunities for late frosts, you don’t want all your hard work to go to waste! If you haven’t planned out your garden, there is still time to get on to it!

build your pile against flammable material such as a wooden fence or the side of the house.

But I don’t have time to chop everything up! Who does! And what does it matter, anyway? The smaller you make your bits of living material, the faster they’ll decompose. Even if you leave everything whole, it’ll get there eventually – even the cotton jeans. I have to admit, shaking out the newspapers a bit does stop them forming a wad, but wads of paper will also break down (and worms love them). Don’t fuss over the cellophane tape on the cartons, either. When you fork out your lovely compost in a few months’ time, the inorganic stuff (including those dreaded plastic stickers on apples) will be easy to pull out, and can be biffed into a waiting rubbish sack. Put into a bucket anything that’s only partly decomposed, and pop it into the next compost pile you construct.

GARDENING

www.igro.co.nz

try carefree composting I thought you had to layer everything? It helps to have layers of green stuff, such as grass clippings, food scraps, the outer leaves of cabbages and fresh weeds, between layers of brown stuff, like dead leaves and flowers, animal manure, seaweed, straw and sawdust, but there is no wrong way. However, it is important to sprinkle a handful of lime (you get it from a garden centre) into the pile every now and then. And always start your pile on a 3-4cm high base of sticks (the sticks should be about as thick as your finger) and/ or twiggy shrub clippings. This open layer helps air get into the pile and stops the compost pile becoming stinky. What’s with the worms? Everything! Worms are like living waste disposers. They chomp through the contents of your compost pile (cardboard and all) and feed their plant-nourishing excrement back into the compost. Red worms and stripy tiger worms are the ones you want, not the big fatties that live in the turfs under the lawn. Most people find that composting worms mysteriously make

themselves at home in the compost pile after a week or so. If this doesn’t happen, beg some “starter worms” from a friend’s compost. They breed fast so just a handful will do. In the worst-case scenario, go online and purchase a packet. Truly – they’ll be delivered by post. So, how does my compost pile heat up? Tiny lifeforms living in the compost are the force behind the heat. To help them get to work, feed your pile with fresh animal manure and green waste (especially grass clippings). The more the better, so beg some from your neighbours as well. Compressing helps with heat, too. Each time you add a layer or two of waste to the pile, get the kids to jump on it so everything gets well pressed down. If you haven’t had any rain for a while, add a couple of buckets of water to the pile. And don’t forget to top the stack with a cosy covering of old carpet, sacks, recycled cardboard or a tarpaulin to lock in the warmth. What’s with this ‘turning the pile’? Turning the pile is only for

1. Won’t meat and fish scraps attract rats and mice? Maybe. It depends how deep in the pile you bury the waste and how hot the pile is. Set some rat traps around your pile if it’s a concern or plant catnip close by. Alternatively, use a lidded, vermin-proof bin. 2. I thought worms didn’t like citrus skins. Just like you, worms will leave on their plate what they don’t fancy eating. But the citrus will rot down, eventually, without the worms’ help.

the people who have time and energy to do it. The rest of us turn nothing but a blind eye. ‘Turning the pile’ means that, after a few months, you pull the pile apart and put the stuff from the outer edges into the middle and vice versa and it’s so everything gets a turn to heat up, and nasty weeds and bugs get cooked into oblivion. If you don’t get time to turn the pile, it’s not the end of the world. You might get weed seeds in your garden, but it’s nothing mulch won’t put paid to. You may also get a few useful seeds such as pumpkin, zucchini and rocket sprouting. As for the nasties, it’s a risk, but so is everything in gardening. And, in my book, risky compost is better than no compost at all.

3. Won’t my neighbours complain about flies round the pile? Not if you cover your food scraps with some soil, grass clippings or sawdust, and pass a fresh lettuce over the fence every now and then. 4. How do I get my compost pile to heat past warm? Unless you’re making the pile your life’s work, don’t expect miracles. Check its dimensions (it should be no less than a cube with sides of 90cm). To promote heat, add some extra green material and animal manure, cross your fingers, and if the temperature is still not outstanding, don’t panic. Decomposition will still work on cool. It’ll just take a little longer.

1. Worms need no encouragement to breed and will soon multiply in even the most rough-and-ready compost pile. 2. This spent broad bean plant may not be finely shredded, but its nitrogen-encrusted roots have much to offer the carefree composter. 3. Some weeds are worth sorting even if you’re short on time. If you spot invasive weeds in your garden tidy-up, don’t put them in the compost. Bin them instead. 4. Mixing fresh grass clippings and animal manure into other organic waste will give your compost pile the best chance of heating up. 5. Know your enemy. Even carefree composters need to evict any vegetables showing signs of dreaded fungus club root. 6. Forget about chopping up the garden waste, just toss it on as-is. 7. Brimming over with rich garden waste, this rough-and-ready compost pile will still produce the goods.

So, that’s all there is to it? Ah, not quite. Once you start composting, even in a rushed kind of way, you may find the activity begins to occupy your thoughts. That’s because composting is seriously addictive. It’s getting ‘something for nothing’ and the ‘something’ is so good for the garden, you just want to keep on making more and more of it.

MOTORING

Six cylinders for Subaru Legacy ON THE back of one of the warmest summers I can remember came the harsh reality of a South Island winter, and certainly one of the harshest I’ve experienced. Temperatures well below zero have been common, but it was the consistency that surprised me and, of course, when we have rain during the evening and then a frost, we get the black ice and formidable driving conditions. Twice I’ve been summoned by my daughter asking for transport after ice made accessing her Celica difficult. Both times I’ve had the good fortune to be driving a fourwheel-drive vehicle or, as in the latest case, as Subaru label it, Symmetrical All Wheel Drive. The car was the new Legacy which lands here just a year or so after the new Outback. Why I’m mentioning the latter is because the two are now a lot more closely aligned, not so much in ride height, but if you want a wagon out of the Subaru stable you need to buy an Outback, today’s Legacy is sedan only. But, there are other factors which tie the two together, the new Legacy also arrives with the choice of two engine options – a 2.5-litre four cylinder petrol engine and a 3.6-litre six-cylinder petrol, although the Outback’s four-pot diesel isn’t available (yet) in the Legacy.

SPECIFICATIONS

The test car was the big six, and in each of the vehicles I’ve experienced this engine I’ve always commented on its power and sophistication. Subaru are no strangers to flat-six engines, they first had a six-potter in 1987 and it has been constantly refined and developed to the point where it has universal application. Today it is rated with power outputs of 191kW and 350Nm, both figures realised quite close in the rev band at 5600rpm and 4400rpm which promotes an energetic nature, but with the pairing of a continuously variable automatic transmission (Lineartronic) it doesn’t need to work overly hard to produce respectable performance figures. According to my stopwatch the Legacy will scorch to 100km/h in 8sec and will make a lunge through a highway overtake in 4.1sec. Subaru has also been on a development programme whereby fuel usage across all of its engines has been under scrutiny so that they are all now more frugal in an age where fickle fuel prices are a major car buying criteria.

Price: Subaru Legacy RS, $49,990. Dimensions: Length,4795mm; width, 1840mm; height, 1500mm. Configuration: Six-cylinder longitudinal (boxer), four-wheel-drive, 3630cc, 191kW, 350Nm, continuously variable automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 8sec.

SUBARU LEGACY RS: Smooth six-cylinder engine has high power outputs. The six-pot Legacy, according to mounted paddles which the driver Subaru, can lay claim to a 9.9-litre can use to lock the gearing into either of the seven pre-set steps. per 100km (29mpg) combined I took the test car on a late cycle fuel usage average. The trip afternoon State Highway 72 loop computer was constantly listing around 10.6l/100km (27mpg) with beneath the Malvern Hills. It was a 7.2l/100km (39mpg) instantane- out of the time frame which I normally use for testing, but I did that ous figure available at a steady deliberately so that any lingering 100km/h. ice patches were well thawed by a I thought these figures were warm sun. generous given that I worked the It was a good drive with little engine hard during evaluation. traffic and dry roads. The Legacy The way Subaru manage the in this form is a true grand tourer CVT system is quite uncharacterwith relaxed highway motion istic for that type of transmission, and, of course, power aplenty. It it works much like a conventional is whisper quiet at the legal limit, gearbox, such are the noticeable and handles with the dignity step points throughout the gearing. There are also steering wheel- and composure we have come

to expect from this high profile manufacturer. Four-wheel-drive always adds that element of extra handling control and, as a consequence, there is definite steering feel as well as fabulous suspension control and balance. The new Legacy consists of just two models, the four-cylinder sits at $39,990, while the six-cylinder car adds $10,000 to that. These are value prices when you consider what you get for the money. Major items include Subaru’s clever eyesight safety technology, electric sunroof, leather trim with heated front seats, and satellite navigation. The Legacy expounds on the ingredients which have forged a solid customer base, especially here in the south. Our winter roads are often treacherous and it’s good cars like the Legacy, and all of the all-wheel-drive vehicles in Subaru’s range, which provide an element of control and safety when conditions are at their worst.

The team will again be captained by veteran prop Mike Rowe with Shannon Donald, who was unfortunately concussed in the Ellesmere final and will miss the early games, vice captain. It has a number of experienced players and some new to country rugby. The season started with a narrow 10-7 loss to Southland Country at Te Anau on the 15th August, this will be followed by a friendly game against Nelson Bays at Murchison on the 22nd August and then they play Metro for the Craw Shield at Rugby Park on the 29th August. This is always a keenly contested fixture and after their very creditable performance last year the players are excited about the opportunity to pit their skills against their Metro counterparts.

He specialises in creating original pieces from reclaimed and recycled timber. The title of his exhibition is Not What It Should Be. Past experience in colour mixing while a trainee designer at a carpet manufacturer has given Mr Ballard some skill in blending colours and tones, which he uses to great effect in his work. He began acrylic painting seven years ago and has developed his own somewhat surreal style, influenced by his travels and observations of nature’s palette. His exhibition is called Expressions of Interest. Selwyn Gallery, 17 South Tce, Darfield. Free entry.

Esquires

your café of choice “Let’s catch up over a coffee.” Meeting for coffee is now a fundamental part of Christchurch life, and with over 30 stores New Zealand-wide, coffee-lovers are never far from an Esquires.

A

fter 10 years, the brand is undergoing a significant transformation. As franchise sales manager David Barnard, explains, it all started here in Christchurch with the Hornby branch leading the way in showcasing the new look. The focus is on clean lines, mixing textures and furniture to add interest and pops of warm reds to welcome in the customers. The bold, new look is part of Esquires’ mission to become New Zealand’s café of choice. After listening to 1300 existing customers, there are new menus and, for the first time, an in-house kitchen to complement the new look. Angela Wanoa, the franchisee at Hornby, really likes the new direction. “The new branding is fresh and modern and the future is all about the customer,” she says. She values being a franchisee of Esquires, too. “You have the buying power of the big organisation, but we are empowered

to be unique and meet the needs of our local customers.” Part of the Retail Food Group family, Esquires is a franchise opportunity that is founded on core values including fun, belonging, a sense of humour, creativity and zeal. Their franchisees aren’t only driven by profit, but by a desire to make a positive impact on people and the planet, too. If a customer chooses Esquires for a break from work, then their belief is that it should be an ‘uplifting’ break. That’s why they pride themselves on making great coffee, and part of their transformation is the move from coffee shop to café. That means Esquires will have a greater emphasis on food that is appealing and full of flavour, baked in-store from supplied mixes fresh each day. The primary reason for this shift is that franchisees will benefit from increased sales and profitability, There are plenty of marketing ideas to

help branch owners, such as loyalty cards, free coffees with never-ending-brunch items, smart packaging and an emphasis on providing a welcoming atmosphere, all combining to make the transformed brand unique within the crowded field of café chains. Andrew Morgan, general manager of Café and Bakery, Retail Food Group NZ, believes the change have resulted in playful, personalityfilled spaces for people to take a moment and enjoy fantastic coffee and a delicious menu. Franchise owners will receive the support provided by the Retail Food Group NZ,

including a dedicated marketing manager, a sales and leasing manager and a specialist in store development and training, as well as five business development managers. Many have been café owners themselves so they understand the issues that people face and how to maximise the potential of every site. To find out more about this growing brand, contact Dave Bernard on 021 331 243 or send him an email at david.bernard@rfg.com.au and learn how to make Esquires your new, old favourite workplace.

THINK ALL FRANCHISE CAFÉS LOOK THE SAME? SO DID WE. THE TRANSFORMATION HAS ALREADY BEGUN AT ESQUIRES. WE’RE TAKING ON A BOLD NEW LOOK TO SET US APART FROM THE OTHER GUYS, AN EXPANDED MENU TO GET MORE VALUE OUT OF EVERY SALE, AND A WHOLE NEW LEVEL OF SUPPORT FOR OUR FRANCHISEES. SO TAKE A SECOND LOOK AT ESQUIRES. WE KNOW CUSTOMERS WILL. OUR ESQUIRES HORNBY SITE IS THE FIRST TO EXPERIENCE THE NEW TRANSFORMATION AND IS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR SALE. IF YOU’D LIKE TO HEAR MORE ABOUT THE SUBSTANTIAL CHANGES WE’RE MAKING AND HOW WE CAN HELP YOU BRING YOUR CAFÉ DREAM TO LIFE, PLEASE CALL DAVID BERNARD ON 021 331 243 or david.bernard@rfg.com.au

SPRINGTIME TIPS NATIVES FOR THE GARDEN

Camellias, Azaleas and Rhododendrons (CAR)

CARING FOR CONIFERS

Planting Natives not only encourages the native birds, but also makes for easy care gardening, and you don’t need to be a purist. Mix natives with hostas, foxgloves, rhododendrons, camellias to name a few.

Now here is a plant that needs very little care, they resist most insects and diseases. Once established regular watering is not necessary (unless there is a prolonged dry summer), they rarely need fertiliser and pruning is not necessary.

So consider this easy care option for your outdoor space or an area of garden that can look great year round.

SOWING SEEDS TIPS Don’t sow seeds too deeply – small seeds only need to be pressed into the soil and larger seeds to be sown no deeper than twice their diameter. Soil must be lightly pressed (not too firm).

Moist Situation? (Will need watering or deep moist soil) Ferns (semi shade): Dicksonia (hardy), Blechnum/Crown Fern, Adiantus/Maidenhair, Asplenium/Hen and Chicken. Conifers: Slow growing Rimu, Kauri or Totara. Broadleaf Natives: Coprosma, Lancewood, marble leaf, pepperwood, Kowhai.

Choose from a wide range of colours – white, yellow, pink, orange, red, violet and even blue. These mostly flower between August and December, however, if you choose carefully you could have beautiful flowering CARs all year round.

There is a huge selection of Conifers that range from groundcover up; they are an easy care plant that can create the backbone of your garden providing form, colour, interest and structure. They make an excellent container plant too.

Dry Situation? (once established, no watering necessary) Cordyline (bronze, golden or green), Malborough Rock Daisy/Pachystegia, Broom/ Carmichaelia, Corokia, Olearia, Pittosporum, Tussocks and Flaxes.

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

Building destination

- KIRWEE

Established trees and plants line the streets of Kirwee, a town where a few housing subdivisions have been popping up recently.

T

his enchanting oasis sits in the middle of the Canterbury plains, making for pleasant walking along a track that circuits the town and its recreation grounds. The Courtney A&P Showgrounds is based at Kirwee, next door to large sports grounds and hall that cater for a variety of groups, including tennis, netball, rugby, bowls and cricket. Kirwee also has its own volunteer fire brigade, a service station with shop and a hotel that provides meals as well as the Kirwee Players who have just finished another sell-out season of Grease, this time to a full audience who come from all over Selwyn and Christchurch. Every year, country comes to country town with the A&P show, and this is

scheduled for November 21. Many people choose Kirwee for the fresh country air, green outlook and promise of a quality lifestyle. With sections priced from $145,000, affordability is also a factor especially attractive given the town is only 25 minutes from Upper Riccarton, making it an attractive option for young families or those starting out. While close to the city, Kirwee has a village feel and the bonus is that it is just five minutes’ drive from Darfield, where there is a good selection of shops and services. These include cafés, bakeries, supermarket, butcher, gym and high school to which students bus from surrounding areas, arriving home with plenty of time to complete their homework and chores.

“Kirwee still has the small town character and a strong community spirit. People know each other and look out for each other, and those who move there find the community inclusive,” says Gareth Cox from Property Brokers. Gareth is assisting three local men with long connections with Kirwee, who are developing the new Kirwee Central subdivision. “Kirwee Central is in its early stages; with earthworks just started though, stage one titles are due mid-November so some building may start before Christmas,” says Gareth who advises that both sections and house and land packages will be available. Three stages are planned for Kirwee Central, with section sizes ranging from

The subdivision is located off Courtenay Road, next to the decile 10 Kirwee Model School, which will be accessible through the subdivision via a walkway, making it safe for children.

rowsing show homes is a fantastic way to get you thinking about practicalities, needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here are a few consideration’s to help spark your planning process. • What is your exterior style? What kind of homes do you like? Look around and take a mental note of what you are drawn to most. • What kind of exterior materials do you like? Once you’ve worked out the look you like, research what materials are available and find out about durability. • How will you use your house? It’s important to most people to have a good indoor/ outdoor flow and attractive, sheltered outdoor living. Imagine your home in various seasons. • Landscaping is important. Look around and consider what you like and don’t like. Are you a structured formal garden type or do you like a contemporary native style? • Sustainability and future-proofing aren’t

just buzzwords anymore. It’s very important for your new home to be environmentally friendly. Research insulation requirements, solar hot water heating, ventilation options and new technology to ensure your home will be affordable to run. • Interior décor is really exciting. This is where show homes can really help you get to know current trends, colours, beautiful furnishings and furniture. Collect home magazines and figure out what you’d love to emulate. • Also, pause to give thought to architectural components inside. Do you remember a raised ceiling? What kind of finishing do top homes use and which styles are you drawn to? • Heating is also a consideration. Have a look at what show homes are offering. • Kitchens form the heart of the house. Show homes give you insight into the latest styles, materials and storage facilities available. • Bathrooms are another big component. They need to be as luxurious as you can make them, so start dreaming.

Five tips for renovators

uilding or renovating a home to take you through the generations can be challenging. Before you start, here are five things you should think about: 1.

2.

minimises the impact on the environment and your monthly power bill. 3.

Creating flexible living spaces. How will your family’s use of living spaces change over the coming years? Are the living spaces big enough to cater to an older or extended family? Slashing your energy bills. With energy costs on the rise, thinking about sustainable design

4.

Creating outdoor living spaces. People renovating often add a lower level or build on top. Both options allow you to create a linkage to an outdoor setting which can be designed as an extra “living room”. Ensure the landscape design is linked in with the overall design for the renovation. Future-proofing for new technologies. You can future proof your home by

Presenting your home

for sale?

The way you present your home not only makes selling it easier, but it may sell faster and increase the price a buyer is prepared to pay.

T

he presentation of your home doesn’t mean spending thousands on an upgrade either! So why wouldn’t you want to do everything possible to make it appealing to prospective purchasers? Street appeal The exterior of your home is the first thing buyers will see, so the property needs to look well-kept and inviting. Take a look at your place from the street and see it through a buyer’s eyes. So, cut the lawns, trim trees, plants and hedges, add some garden lights and place a nice pot or plant by the front door. Ensure the house exterior is cleaned or freshened with new paint if necessary, hose down drives, paths and fences, put stylish new numbers on the house and perhaps buy a funky new letter box! Make an entrance Even if your entrance or hallway is small, you can still give it some wow! A large mirror adds light and makes an entrance look twice the size. Fresh flowers, candles or a stylish piece of art create an inviting first impression. Ensure floors are clean whether timber, tiles or carpet.

Create space Light, air and space are three key factors in presenting a home to the best advantage. Open up curtains and windows and use lamps and light fittings for mood and ambience. Arrange furniture to maximise space and remove items that make the room appear cramped. Fresh feel Freshen rooms with new paint if necessary, but aim for neutral tones which are more versatile for buyers. Add a splash of colour in cushions, throws, artwork or a vase of flowers. Invest in a new duvet or bedspread and always make the bed!

Christchurch’s Leading Property Management Company

Clear out clutter Storage space sells but clutter complicates! Clean out your cupboards, shelves and garage, and get rid of unnecessary clutter. Buyers inspect wardrobes and cupboards so tidy them up and reduce the number of photos, books, nicknacks on display – they distract buyers, too! Beautify the bathroom Replace or resurface fittings if necessary, but otherwise you can simply beautify your bathroom with thorough and fastidious cleaning, thick opulent towels, a tray of beautiful soaps and some lush, green plants. Invest in a new shower curtain or laundry hamper, and maybe a sleek, modern towel rail. Clean clean clean Cleaning is a mandatory part of selling your home: have carpets, rugs and upholstery commercially cleaned and sanitised, clean drapes and blinds to look like new, polish glass and furniture, wash down all surfaces and fittings in the bathroom and kitchen, clean all light fittings, wash windows inside and out, deodorise your home to eliminate

any odours from pets, cooking or smoke. Outdoor spaces Even a small patio, deck or terrace can be enhanced with a café table and chairs. Add some colourful accessories – placemats, candle lamps, pots and plants, and there you have an extra living area. If space is not limited, hang a hammock, string some outdoor lights, position a garden sculpture or create a water feature that buyers will love. Hire a handyman Squeaking doors, dripping taps, cracked tiles, broken fences, leaking toilets or appliances that don’t work are a turn-off for buyers. If you can’t repair or replace things yourself, then hire a handyman to make sure everything in your home works as it should. Finish it first Buyers want to see a finished home, not one that’s still being fixed! So finish everything before you list your home for sale, then launch it onto the market when it looks its absolute best – you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
