Water quality rules jeopardise farm sales

BY TOM DOUDNEY Farm sales are being hit due to uncertainty surrounding the regional council’s controversial water rules. Real estate company, Colliers International, says some farm sales in Selwyn are not going ahead because buyers were worried about new Environment Canterbury water quality rules. Colliers International rural and agribusiness director Ruth Hodges told the ECan-led Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee last week that she was aware of three farm sales, including at least one in Selwyn, which had not gone ahead because buyers were worried over the implications of the water rules. Typically, the buyers had offered 20 per cent less than the asking price as a result, she said. ECan’s Variation 1 of the Canterbury Land and Water Regional Plan sets out rules that dictate water use including nutrient limits for most Selwyn farms. It is operative but under High Court appeals from Federated Farmers, the Ellesmere Irrigation Society and Forest and Bird. ECan’s Plan Change 4, which covers a wide range of issues relating to water, will be open for public submissions from Saturday, with the first hearing week to begin on February 29. •Turn to page 3

REPORTER

Richie McCaw’s record-breaking shorts have a new home on the wall of the The Famous Grouse Hotel in Lincoln. McCaw wore the shorts in the 41-13 win over Australia at Eden Park on August 15, his 142nd test for the All Blacks – a world record. Hotel owner Craig Bradford was the successful bidder for the shorts at a charity auction. He won’t disclose how much he paid for them. The signed shorts now have pride of place in the hotel.

Mr Bradford said he bid for the shorts because he was a great rugby fan, it was Rugby World Cup year and they were such a significant piece of memorabilia. He bought the shorts at the Banks Peninsula Trotting Club’s sponsors’ night. Trotting club president, Paul Davies, said one of the club’s committee members, Maurice McDermott, is a friend of McCaw’s and asked the All Blacks captain for some memorabilia for the auction. He generously gave the shorts.

McCaw used to work on Mr McDermott’s farm when he was studying at Lincoln University and the two have remained friends ever since. A rugby ball signed by McCaw was also auctioned. McCaw has since phoned Mr Bradford as he was curious about where the shorts had ended up. “He wanted to know who bought them and he said he would come out after the World Cup and sign anything I wanted. “I thought he didn’t need to do that. That is the mark of the

As for McCaw’s jersey, Mr Bradford speculated the All Blacks captain would have hung on to that. He said with the history embroidered on the jersey it was something McCaw would have probably kept. Mr Bradford said that jersey will one day be a centre piece of a rugby museum.

Police talk to Aca’s racial abuser BY TOM DOUDNEY

Police have spoken to the person they believe may have sparked racial abuse against Fijian rugby player Sake Aca. Detective Damon Wells said he was “pretty confident” the man was one of the main instigators of the abusive taunts directed at Aca while playing for Christchurch in the club rugby final against Lincoln University

on July 26. Aca (rght) left the field in tears after the abuse which was believed to have come from a section of Lincoln supporters in the crowd. Detective Wells confirmed that the man, who was interviewed by police on Friday, was one of the people named on a list supplied by Lincoln University. He hoped that the man might be

able to help police identify more people involved. However, he would not comment further on the conversation with the man. Police took up the investigation after a complaint from the Canterbury Rugby Football Union but Aca himself has indicated he does not want to lay a complaint of his own.

Back to World War 1 CAST OF CHARACTERS: Broadfield School pupils took a trip back in time to World War 1 for their production, Best Mates, performed in Hornby High School’s auditorium on Wednesday. The script was written by teachers Jarrad Welsh and Phil LeLievre. Set in Broadfield during wartime, the story depicted strong local characters and families facing the adversity of war. Each class performed a piece in time relating to the overall theme, with a variety of comedy and tear jerking moments. All of the props and staging were supplied and made by school families. Parent Belinda McMillan made many of the costumes herself with Rolleston Costume Hire supplying the rest free of charge. More than 400 people attended the afternoon and night time performances.

Detective Wells said Aca had indicated he would prefer to meet privately with the man to resolve the matter. He was not sure if a prosecution was likely to take place, given Aca’s unwillingness to make a complaint. A spokeswoman for CRFU said it was seeking an update from police and would not comment further until this had taken place.

Farm sales jeopardised

•From page 1 Mrs Hodges told the Selwyn Times those hesitating to buy or making lower offers appeared to be people who were interested in converting existing farms to a new model of operation. “When a purchaser is wanting to go and change the farming system, whether that is by intensifying or changing from arable to dairy support, that is where a much greater level of due diligence is required,” she said. ECan zone committee member and South Island Dairying Development Centre executive director Ron Pellow said he agreed with Mrs Hodges findings. He said the new water rules could lead to farmers accepting lower prices, but it was dependent on how much of a hurry they were in to sell. But Mr Pellow said that as more clarity was gained about the rules, the uncertainty around price would likely disappear. Mr Pellow said he acknowledged that ECan’s rules were having some impact on farm sales but he believed the wider economic climate was having a bigger impact. “The rules are needed in terms of making sure we have viable economic farming systems long term and there is no point in not having adequate rules now because of what we think it will do to farm prices.” Federated Farmers North Canterbury president Frank Brenmuhl believed new environmental limits would be unlikely to have a long term impact on the profitability of farms. Mr Brenmuhl said buyers from outside Canterbury were more likely to be put off by the new rules because they were unfamiliar with them.

Healthy schools aim of fruit tree project BY TOM DOUDNEY

Five years from now, all 28 of Selwyn’s primary schools could have enough fruit trees planted to form a small orchard, thanks to a new grassroots initiative. Local businesses are offering to donate 10 fruit trees or plants to each school every year for the next five years. The project is the brainchild of Independent Signs owners Alan and Aileen Peacock who were prompted to do something to encourage local sustainability after taking part in the Responsible Business Awards. They decided they wanted to focus on healthy eating in schools after watching an episode of Campbell Live which showed Auckland children going to school without adequate lunches. The plan was for 10 busi-

nesses to each provide 28 trees or other fruiting plants a year, with schools deciding what varieties they wanted. This was expected to cost each business about $600 a year. Any excess fruit not needed by the children could be donated to food banks or elderly care facilities. Mr Peacock said there had been a great deal of enthusiasm from the businesses he had approached. The Outdoor Space owners Aaron and Vicky Bartlett would be assisting schools with planting and maintaining their trees, Sicon Ferguson had offered to provide pruning services, and Hawkins Construction had expressed an interest in turning it into a nationwide initiative. If the project was successful, it could be extended to the district’s high schools at

the end of the five years. Lincoln Envirotown Trust is acting as school liaison for the project. Project manager Dave Fitzjohn said that 13 schools had so far expressed an interest. “The take up is Selwynwide, from Prebbleton to Glentunnel, which is great,” Mr Fitzjohn said. Weedons School principal Kathy Bell said it was a great idea and the school had already worked out where the first trees would go. “We hope to have a line by the playground where parents and children walk through when they come in from the car park, which will be lovely when they blossom as well as when they have the fruit on them.” Mr Peacock said that as well as feeding children, the experience of growing the fruit would also be educational.

Triplets celebrate 60 years BY GABRIELLE STUART

Rolleston resident Gerard Smith, who was lucky to survive his first week after birth, has celebrated his 60th birthday with his triplet brother and sister. They were born in the winter of 1955, two months premature – weighing less than 10 pounds between them. Both boys were born breech, facing the wrong way. And even after the difficult birth they were still in danger. There was a staph aureus epidemic at the time, which killed eight babies in Christchurch in the week the triplets were born. But against all odds they survived, and gathered back in Christchurch this week to celebrate their 60th. Gerard lives in Rolleston, but David is in Cromwell and Louise – who flew into Christchurch on Thursday – lives in New South Wales. The three have not lived in the same city since they were 17, and David moved away for work. But getting together had become more important to them as they got older. As triplets they grew up with plenty of attention, were constantly dressed in matching clothes, and often in the local papers – so Gerard said they were quite happy to be apart at first. “I thought it was quite a good thing really. We were busy being boys, so it didn’t bother us.” But they have become closer as they’ve grown older, and it’s obvi-

60 YEARS: Triplets Gerard Smith, Louise Kraf and David Smith celebrated their 60th birthday in Christchurch this week. PHOTO (ABOVE): MARTIN HUNTER ous by the constant teasing how much they enjoy being together. “Louise was the oldest, because we had manners, so we said ladies first,” Gerard said. “David was born last, and he has been late ever since.” “I was the boss until they got bigger than me,” Louise said. “But that was when we were about two years old.” She said she was always “a bit of a tomboy” growing up, always out

with her brothers. “We put up with her – we needed someone to push us on the gokart,” Gerard said. The boys looked identical growing up – right down to the moustaches they both grew. “People would ask if we were all identical, and we’d say of course not, our sister hasn’t got a moustache – yet,” David said. The triplets had three older siblings, all single births, and they

didn’t know of any other multiple births in the family over at least four generations. Their parents, Bert and Dot Smith, thought they were having twins, so the triplets were a huge surprise – and a lot of work. “All those nappies! Dad used to hang them all up at night. And they used a copper to wash them in those days too,” Louise said. But there were perks to being a triplet. The family was sent a cheque for three pounds, signed by the Queen, when the babies were born. They had a special pram made for them, wide enough for three – although it meant they had to pick their route carefully, as it was too wide for some footpaths. But the best thing about being a triplet, David said, was having someone to blame – whether caught smoking at boarding school, or stealing their mother’s chocolate slice. But there were also disadvantages. “It’s fairly awkward when you go out and someone thinks they recognise you,” Gerard said. “They’ll say hi and then think what a rude bugger, when you don’t know who they are.” And it even has the potential to cause marriage issues. “I’ve had people come to me and say is your marriage okay, I saw you out with a blonde woman,” David said. “Of course, it was Gerard and his wife.”

Firefighters get no reprieve BY TOM DOUDNEY

There has been no reprieve for Lake Coleridge firefighters who resigned in protest after having a key vehicle taken off them. Six out of eight members of the Lake Coleridge Rural Fire Force had stood down but were prepared to be reinstated if the four-wheel-drive Isuzu, which has been given to the West Melton Rural Fire Force, was returned. However, the district council has not backed down, and Chief Fire Officer Bruce Simpson and deputy chief fire officer Neil Frazer are expected to have their warrants withdrawn tomorrow. A report for tomorrow’s district council meeting said the decision to transfer the vehicle from Lake Coleridge to West Melton was “logical and necessary.” West Melton was responsible for a large area including the Waimakariri riverbed and regularly attended fires further afield, including Rolleston and the Port Hills. The resources available to the Lake Coleridge firefighters were “more than adequate for high country firefighting” the report said. Mr Simpson was not available for comment yesterday but a family member said he was disappointed in the district council’s stance.

Sentence for driver ‘disappointing’

Tuesday September 8 2015

7

BY TOM DOUDNEY

The owner of Kirwee Challenge says the sentence handed down to a drunk driver who destroyed two petrol pumps is “disappointing.” Hornby labourer Kaylib Dallas Kauri Moana, 18, was fined $1550 and disqualified from driving for six months after he admitted crashing into the pumps on June 6. Kirwee Challenge owner Stuart Jones said he felt the sentence should have been harsher because of the extent of the damage, the disruption to his business and the breath alcohol level of 930mcg/L which Moana had recorded. However, Mr Jones was also glad to have the trial over with so he could put the matter behind him. “It’s all done now and you have got to move on and put it in the past. There is no point dwelling on it.” After the crash, the station was unable to sell petrol for about three weeks until a temporary pump could be put in. Even when the temporary pump was working, it could not keep up with demand. The new permanent pumps, which were installed about four weeks ago, cost $56,000 in total, and the insurance claim was still being worked through. “We hope we don’t have to

Email your view to tom. doudney@starmedia.kiwi go through that again, it’s just too hard, not only for us but the whole community,” Mr Jones said. Moana had been drinking at the Kirwee Rugby Club rooms after playing rugby at the domain. He went to the service station to buy cigarettes but lost control of the car and crashed into the pumps before fleeing the scene. A youth who had been a pas-

senger in the car drove them back to the domain where Moana was later found by police hiding in the bushes. Mr Jones said Moana was very lucky not to have seriously injured himself when he hit the petrol pumps. “He should really go out and buy a Lotto ticket. If he wins it, he can pay back his damage – yeah right.” Moana originally pleaded not guilty to the charges of driving with excess breath-alcohol and careless driving but later changed his plea to guilty.

Love in the AsyLum The latest exhibition showing at Little River Gallery is a duo by Canterbury artists Helen Taylor and Elisha Jordan. Birds are the main theme for both but diverse mediums and techniques are used. Watercolour paint and fine paint brush to stainless steel and welding torch manage to capture the wildness and beauty of birds. Helen Taylor is an artist, writer and award winning children’s book illustrator. Her work is inspired by poetry, song and the ‘collector’ of the exotic and beautiful. ‘The Ornithologist and the Lepidopterist hunger for that which is unique. They strive to capture Beauty and preserve it in museum drawers and Bell Jars. Life and Death is on display for all eternity.’ Helen has work in private collections throughout New Zealand and overseas. She lives in the port-side town of Lyttelton.

‘Dreaming of Spring’ by Elisha Jordan

Elisha Jordan is based in Waikuku and has exhibited throughout New Zealand. Elisha’s work is inspired by animals and birds and from an early age loved to observe them. Taught to sculpt with steel by her father and artist Bill Clarke she now uses these methods to recreate beautiful and natural sculptures. “I am trying to recreate something of the beauty and life of nature in all that it is. I’m observing the relationship of animals and the effect they have on people”.

If I can get a few punches into these guys, then brilliant, because they’re probably 10 times better than Todd as well. I certainly get whacked around – I gave my first nose bleed last week. I got mine done as well – that was about the fourth time. You get so fit – I’ve lost six or seven kilos, and so has Todd, so that shows he’s working just as hard as me, if not harder. Losing weight, you can make better decisions in life.

How do you make an Irishman stop drinking? For Paul Lally, the answer was putting him in a boxing ring, for this weekend’s Battle of the Rebuild charity event. The Prebbleton Gib stopper talked to Andrew Voerman about why he’s doing it and how it’s going G’day Paul, so tell me, why are you getting in the ring? Have you always been a boxer? No – my father was a boxer in the army, so I’m hoping it might be bred into me – but I’ve never worn gloves in my life. I was always a boxing fan, like, I’d go to tournaments where I could – I went to all of the Battle of the Rebuilds and the Fight for Christchurch, and a lot of the ones at working men’s club – they’re just a good night out, y’know. Then the opportunities came around, and I realised this was something I wanted to do, and now it’s here. It’s probably the biggest thing I’ve ever done in my life. And it’s all about charity right? Yes – my charity’s Pillars – it’s an organisation that helps children who have got parents in prison. My partner says it’s brilliant to support a charity to help children

and to help families – I’m a very keen family man. And you’re fighting Todd Morel from Morel Construction – did you know him before this? Yeah, I did – I’ve done a bit of contract work for them in the past – I actually called him out. I’d signed up, but (promoter) Justin Wallace couldn’t find me anybody, so I gave him a couple of names of people who I knew loved their boxing, and who were the same height and same weight, and one came through, even though he is about 10 years younger than me. I’d prefer to do this and lose, than not do it at all – if they didn’t have anybody to fight me except a guy who’s 10 times better than me, I’d still do it. How have you found the training?

the bout of his life How long have you been out here for? I’ve been here now for 23 years – I’ve actually been in New Zealand longer than I was in Ireland. You’ve still got the accent though? Yeah, a little bit. So what brought you out here? It was 1990 and I was 23 - I’m 52 now - and I went to London where I met my partner Justene (a Hornby girl born-and-bred). We got engaged in 1991, and we’re still engaged, we never went any further, but we’re still together – we’ve got two grown up children here in New Zealand. We came here in 1992 – I wanted to come over here, I wanted to go further. For a lot of Irish people, London is the first step, and then they go to America, or Australia, or New Zealand – wherever – after that. And you run your own business? Yes – my company’s called Broomfield Quality Stoppers, and I’ve been established here since 1994. I didn’t know anything about plastering when I came here, and this guy said to me, you should become a Gib stopper, and I said what’s that? NEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf I was always looking for some 1 other kind of job, and I saw a

PLASTERED: Paul Lally runs his own Gib stopping company, Broomfield Quality Stoppers, but will be swapping plaster for punches in the Battle of the Rebuild next weekend. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER course in the newspaper for Gib stopping. My partner’s father had given her $2000 a month before that – for the wedding, when we decided to get married – and we used that for the course, and still haven’t got married. What kept you here? I knew I was going to be staying here, because when we left London in 1992, the recession was kicking in, and there was nothing in Ireland. I thought I don’t want 1/05/2014 11:51:35 to raise a family ina.m. London. Unless you’re born or bred English,

a London person or it’s not your kind of place. Everyone says that Ireland and New Zealand are very similar countries and that’s probably what brought it on – all these Kiwis I use to work with in London would say that. I didn’t have a trade or anything when I applied to come out – I guess they must have seen some good in me. What did Justene and the rest of your family think about you getting in the ring?

Justene was not happy with it. I actually tried it the year before last, and she got into me, ‘oh, please don’t do that,’ and I said okay, but then last year I decided I was going to do that. She got mad – we didn’t talk about boxing for a month – and then she just came around. She kept saying she could never go to the fight – she was very anti that kind of violence I guess. It’s only in the last three or four weeks that she’s decided she’d come – she might not be looking,

she might cover her eyes – but she’s coming. Do you ever worry about the risks? No way. It doesn’t even come into my head. You said you were really hungry to win. Why is that? Why are you doing this? I’m doing it for my family, and my friends. This is the biggest thing in my life. I like to think I’m representing a lot of people. My son Sean who lives in London, he’s just getting over cancer. He’s 23 and he just found out about four or five months ago that he had testicular cancer, so he’s had two operations and now he’s fine, he’s clear. He’s had it and beaten it so I’m doing it for him. I’m doing it for my daughter, because she’s so strong – she’s got a lot of Irish in her. I’m doing it for my partner, and I’m doing it for my friends. My partner’s grandfather, he’s 94 and he still drives – he’s an amazing man. I’m doing it for him too, and I want to win, for all these people. But if I don’t win, I’m not a sore loser. It’s why I’ve given up the alcohol. If you try 100 per cent to do something; if you do the best you can, and you don’t win, you still feel okay, because you’ve given it your all.

HANGING ON: The Synlait Milk team gave it their all in the tug o’ war at last year’s Hororata Highland Games.

New Highland games events Two new events will debut at this year’s Hororata Highland Games. The games will be held on November 7, at the Hororata Domain. One of the new competitions, the Highland Spin, will see teams of six people racing to shear a sheep, spin the wool and knit a child’s jersey in six hours. The other will be a novice Women’s Heavy category. This competition will be for female competitors who want to test their strength and athleticism across four traditional heavy events including the caber toss, sheaf toss, hammer throw and stone putt. The games will celebrate its fifth birthday this year, having grown into one of the largest Scottish festivals in New Zealand.

Event manager Cindy Driscoll said new permanent dance stages at the domain would accommodate more entries than in previous years, as well as giving the highland dancers more space and a level stage to perform on. The festival will include a range of market stalls, a fairground, Scottish Clans with genealogy, food and wine tasting and ‘have a go’ areas. Activities for visitors will include tossing the caber or sheaf, a farmers walk, archery and the haggis toss, as well as team events like the tug o’ war.

Rebranding comes with new St John Rolleston base BY TOM DOUDNEY

St John Ellesmere has rebranded itself as it reaches the halfway point in fundraising for its new Rolleston base. The organisation will now be known as St John Selwyn Central to better reflect the area it serves – which stretches from Rolleston, Lincoln and Tai Tapu in the north to the Ellesmere ward in the south and into parts of Malvern in the west. The change had previously been signalled but has now formally taken effect. Meanwhile, the organisation has raised $320,000 of the $670,000 needed for the new base on Kidman St. The new garage on site is expected to be built by October 30 and an architect is drawing plans for the reconfiguration of an existing house on site into staff quarters and community meeting rooms. Generation Homes will manage the reconfiguration and staff are expected to move in early next month. St John Selwyn Central chairman John Sunckell said fundraising had taken a number of forms, from sausage sizzles to donation boxes placed in Rolleston businesses to grants. A recent presentation at the district council chambers was attended by 60 people from the Rolleston business community. Mr Sunckell said the night had been very successful.

HAPPY DAY: The St John Darfield area committee, ambulance crews and youth division members celebrate the opening of their new ambulance station.

Darfield gets new ambulance station

GRATITUDE: St John Selwyn Central chairman John Sunckell with Rolleston resident Terry Etwell, whose life was saved by St John. “We have had a number of pledges of support from this event to date but of equal importance was the networking that was achieved and the knowledge that people will talk to others about the project,” he said. “We were delighted to have Terry Etwell with us to bring a human face to our work. Terry, after suffering chest pain, had a cardiac

arrest this time last year and was able to talk about what it meant to him and his family to be there and talking about it, having been defibrillated and brought back.” Major donations so far have included $50,000 from the Canterbury Community Trust, $20,000 from Selwyn’s Mayoral Relief Fund and $5000 from the Selwyn Central Community Board.

After five years operating from a variety of makeshift offices, St John Malvern finally has a new ambulance station in Darfield. The new station on Bray St was opened with a ceremony attended by Selwyn MP Amy Adams on Saturday. The September 2010 earthquake had destroyed the previous building in North Tce, forcing ambulance crews and youth cadets to use other Darfield buildings for training and office space. It has been a difficult time trying to provide service as normal but support from Darfield High School, Darfield Primary School, Mountain View Church, Darfield Fire Brigade and the Darfield Catholic Church has enabled nor-

mal training and other operations to continue. The garage was unscathed by the earthquake, meaning St John was able to continue storing its two ambulances there during the five years. The new building is the first earthquake stricken St John building to be rebuilt. The Darfield ambulances serve the area from Arthurs Pass in the west to West Melton in the east and from Oxford, north of the Waimakariri River south to the Rakaia River, covering more than 5000 sq km and 13,000 people. The ambulance staff of 24 are all volunteers. In the last year they responded to 586 calls, drove 45,000km and worked 2700 hours.

Tom Rainey A name synonymous with jazz, Tom is an instrumentalist on bass and piano and one of NZ leading arrangers and educators. His arrangements have been performed by all the NZ regional orchestras, the NZSO, the Australian Pops Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, with performances in Europe, Asia, Australia and the US, including Carnegie Hall. He has performed with a huge variety of artists from Georgie Fame and Johnny Dankworth to Renée Geyer, Anika Moa, Dave Dobbyn, Kiri Te Kanawa, Mary Coughlan and more. There is a list of credits as long as your arm, so suffice to say he is a fantastic musician who is in demand and makes a huge contribution to Canterbury’s Arts & Music Communities.

On Saturday the 19th September 7.30pm the Nut Point Centre in West Melton opens its doors to host the Pop-Up Concert Series, featuring Ma Bell & Guests with a fabulous programme showcasing individual work and smoking hot improvised collaborations. Blues in the Night features four of Canterbury’s top jazz and blues musician/composers/arrangers and educators, including fingerstyle and blues guitarist Jon Maxim Hooker with jazz guitarist Bob Heinz. Tom Rainey joins the line up on upright bass and piano with Ma Bell playing host and taking the vocal spot to deliver an evening of classic blues, jazz and celtic soul with a dash of vaudevillian satire and music hall theatre woven in to encourage a little bodacious frivolity. Ma Bell’s shade is definitely blue and in this not to be missed concert she tells the story of the blues in fifty deadly night shades, from birth to death with all the juicy bits in between. The Pop-Up Concert Series gratefully acknowledges support from The Selwyn District Council Creative Communities Scheme and Selwyn Events Fund.

All names and stage personas created by the woman, musician and performance artist behind The Pop-Up Concert Series, a woman of many hats and shades. Scottish born Miller Bell is a multi-faceted performance artist with a passion for music and the stage, a folk blues, jazz singer songwriter, weaver of stories and an eloquent interpreter of song who arrived on our shores in 1987 and quickly won her way into the hearts of Christchurch audiences with her chocolate hazelnut voice and warm stage presence. From Europe to Sydney this vintage blues and celtic soul artist has performed on many performance platforms from the streets, schools and prisons to international, national and local festivals and major events. She continues quietly to be at the cutting edge of the acoustic independent music scene, heralded to be one of New Zealand’s most musical Scottish imports (NZMM June/July 2003)

Jon Maxim Hooker A guitarist, instrumental composer and guitar tutor who arrived in New Zealand in 1987 from Oxford in England. Jon is a highly respected guitar tutor and master blues and finger style guitarist and instrumental composer who’s influences include the contemporary baroque players and early blues masters. Known for his clean precise style, Jon is one of those rare musicians who can move effortlessly through genres making him a highly sought after accompanist.

Lincoln leaders help children bring their dreams to life BY TOM DOUDNEY

Turning Selwyn children’s dreams into reality is the project brief for a group of Lincoln University students. The Future Leader scholars are running the ‘My Town’ project to help one group of children bring to life their vision for something they want to see created in their community. A children’s maze in Leeston and a programme to establish stronger relationships between Darfield High School students

and the local elderly are among a number of proposals which have been put forward by children after a series of workshops were held at schools around the district. Other ideas included establishing a community garden in Darfield and sprucing up picnic tables in public parks. The children will present their proposals at a public event at the Lincoln University students’ dining hall on Friday. A judging panel including Selwyn MP Amy Adams and Lincoln

University chancellor Tom Lambie will pick one of the proposals to receive funding and guidance from Future Leader scholars. The event will double as a fundraiser, with adults paying $15 for entry. There will also be games, drinks and snack food available. My Town is part of the Future Leader Lend a Hand initiative, which was established in 2011 to support local and national causes. The initiative has previously focused mainly on events like the World Record Gumboot Throw,

Shave to Save and the Youthline Charity Auction, raising more than $100,000 over the past four years. • The children’s presentation will take place in the Lincoln University students’ dining hall on Friday at 6pm. Tickets are $15 and can be bought from the university’s recreation centre or any of these schools: Ellesmere College, Darfield High School, Leeston School, Lincoln Primary School, Springston School, West Melton School and Ladbrooks School.

Trial programme planned to promote on-campus cycling A Lincoln University lecturer wants to trial a programme that would introduce bicycles for hire on campus – and eventually the rest of Selwyn. The idea is similar to a bicycle share project recently launched in Christchurch’s Central Business District in an effort to make the city more cycle-friendly. Tourism, sport and society department lecturer Dr Catherine Elliot is keen to initiate a rural version of the scheme throughout Selwyn. She is seeking funding for an initial scheme facilitating travel around the university campus and between Prebbleton and Lincoln. “Students and staff, as well as local residents, could use the bikes to travel on and off campus,” Dr Elliot said. “Many folks commute to Lincoln

Dual-purpose creeping thyme BY TOD PALENSKI

I’m a big fan of plants that do more than one thing. For example, fragrant sweet peas are great for cut flowers and have a fantastic scent too. Lavender looks and smells lovely and also attracts bees. And one of my favourite dual-purpose herbs is wild creeping thyme. It tastes and can be used in just the same way as regular thyme but it’s also excellent grown as ground cover or lawn. Unlike standard thyme, which grows up, creeping thyme spreads out along the ground making it perfect for filling in gaps in your garden or lawn. All it needs is some welldrained soil in full sun to light shade. When you’ve found the right spot for your creeping thyme, also known as wandering thyme grab some seedlings and simply plant around 20-30cm apart from each other. You can harvest your thyme straight away but it’s best to give it some time to get established. The longer you leave it, the more leaves you’ll have to harvest later on. Then in spring and after flowering, give it a prune to help maintain it’s compact appearance.

COLOUR: Alyssum is perfect for growing outdoors, indoors or in pots.

Lovely little alyssum BY TOD PALENSKI

HARVEST: Give thyme some time to get established.

Once you’ve got your plants, look for a spot in your garden that’s in full sun to semi-shade. Then plant each seedling around 20cm apart from the other.If you’re growing alyssum in a hanging basket, because of it’s cascading nature, I recommend putting it around the sides. This will provide colour and soften the edges of the basket. Lobelia also works nicely in this way. And you could top the basket with petunias and impatiens or, for something a bit different, add cherry tomato and basil combos to the top. In around six to eight weeks you’ll have a little, or a lot, of lovely alyssum colour to enjoy in your garden.

If you’re after a little colour in your garden this spring, or a lot for that matter, look no further than lovely alyssum. This dainty, fragrant plant flowers from early spring through to late autumn and produces a mass of pretty little flowers. Its hardiness and compactness makes it great for growing in borders, edging and rock gardens. It’s also prefect for planting in containers, hanging baskets and pots because of its tendency to spill over the edges. What’s more, it’s super easy to grow.

All things white and wonderful Rachel Vogan gets excited about some of this season’s white blooms By Rachel Vogan

AT THIS time of year, white flowers symbolise the twinkling of stars in the night sky. They add a welcome punch of colour and freshness, which both brighten and liven up the green canopies of foliage in the main shrub borders. The clean, crisp and ultra-bright blooms add a much-needed splash of colour, bringing the garden back to life. The flowers look very much like they are dancing in the moonlight. While I enjoy looking at these blooms in the garden, I do pick them for the vase as well. Everything I plant has to be multipurpose, in that they have to look good in the garden and last in a vase for a few days. Why plant something you can’t pick? All of these blooms are happy in a vase, and last a number of days if placed somewhere away from direct sunlight from the windows. Often, I can’t

resist the temptation to pick a few blooms, not because I need to, but because I can. Starting at ground level are the carpets of snowdrops (Galanthus sp.). These magical little bulbs, appear from nowhere under the layers of leaf litter and mulch to light up the dark garden paths and edges. I liken them to fairy lights; they feather the skirts of the rhododendrons and hydrangeas that hover above them. Nestled in beside them are the most fragrant white jonquils. These miniature-looking daffodils have a punchy perfume. Next up are the fairy primroses (Primula malacoides) and rosebud polyanthus. Both of these are blended together to create the petticoats between the garden floor and the taller shrubs around them. The primroses are annuals and rarely self-seed, so each season new ones are planted out in autumn. The rosebud polys are perennials and come back to bloom again each season. These are exceptional value as they bulk up over summer and are easily divided and poked into new pockets all around the garden. Above these layers sit the skirts of hellebores. Originally, all-white ones were planted, but as the new

seedlings begin to flower the tones vary a little from pure-white through to pale pinks, purple and plum tones. Then there are the two major ivory anchors of white, Camellia japonica hybrid, which we haven’t been able to name. It sits under the 25m regal pin oak. The stately tree offers the slightest protection to the blooms from frost, so the petals never brown off and deteriorate. Next to it sits the star magnolia (Magnolia stellata). This super-bushy shrub-cum-small tree is cloaked in fragrant white flowers that burst open from its velvet-looking, furry buds. Over winter, the buds have been quietly fattening up, ready to take the limelight as soon as the soils warm a smidge.

gardening without guesswork Question:

I am about to start a new vegetable garden in a raised planter box. How do I work out how much mix I need, and how do I choose the best product to put in it?

Spring is a great time to get those raised garden boxes ready to plant vegetables, herbs and flowers in. To work out how much product you will need to fill the boxes, you need to work out the area that you have to fill. Measure the length, width and depth, keeping them all in the same unit measurement, and multiply the 3 numbers. This will then tell you how many cubic metres it will take to fill it. You can also head to our website and look for our product calculator to help you. Choosing the right product to plant in is important. Just like us, plants need the right nutrients to grow and stay healthy. Our best sellers are our Vege Garden Mix and our Garden Soil Mix. Vege Garden Mix is a top quality growing mix that has the added benefit of having a controlled release fertiliser in it. This means that it will release nutrients as the plants need it, ensuring there is plenty of food available throughout the growing process. Garden Soil Mix is a 50/50 blend of top soil and our Organic Compost but does not contain fertiliser. This mix will still provide a great growing environment for your plants, and fertiliser can be added through the season. If you still aren’t sure what to get, have a look on our website www.igro. co.nz, or call in and have a chat to one of our team. We are more than happy to discuss options with you and show you what we have available.

Anticipating asparagus

SUPER SPEARS: Keep soil moist during the time your asparagus is growing.

Asparagus always signals that spring is here. The juicy sweet spears are bliss covered with butter or a light white wine sauce. If you are going to grow your own asparagus you need to know it’s a long term crop. In the first two years you won’t get many spears. It’s not until year three that you will get a bountiful crop. Purple and green varieties are available. Mary Washington and Franklin are popular green types and Sweet Purple is a purple variety. Both have a similar taste. When, where and how to plant Choose a sunny spot with a light, free-draining moisture retentive soil. Raised beds will improve drainage. Add well-rotted compost and/or manure and dig into the soil. Plant in rows 15 to 20cm apart, in raised beds and containers you can plant in blocks. Plant one or two-year-old crowns in early spring. Soak the crowns in warm water for about an hour before planting. Dig a trench about 30cm long by 30cm deep with a raised ridge in the centre. Place the new plants on the ridge, spreading the roots evenly down the ridge.

Loan applications

now open for dairy farmers

Fonterra farmers can now apply for Fonterra Co-operative Support, a loan to help them deal with the current challenging conditions. Chairman John Wilson says Fonterra is well-placed to help its farmers because of the co-operative’s underlying strength.

“B

eing able to help our farmers is all about standing together as a co-operative and using our collective strength to get through these tough times,” Mr Wilson said. “We have had a lot of interest from farmers who appreciate what the co-operative is trying to do for them to assist them with their farming businesses in a tough financial climate, and we are anticipating a large number of applications.” Farmer shareholders can apply for an interest-free loan of 50 cents for every kilogram of share-backed milk solids produced from June 1 to December 31,

2015. The loan will be interest-free until May 31, 2017, after which Fonterra may charge interest. Farmers can repay all or part of the loan at any time and no security is required over their shares or any other assets. The loan will be repayable directly from milk payments, and automatic repayments will occur when Total Advance Rate Payments exceed $6. Applications opened on September 1 and will close at 5pm on September 25, 2015. Farmers can apply online (the preferred option) at www.nzfarmsource.co.nz, or by email, fax or post. For the first half of the season (June to

Fonterra’s Darfield plant

December), Fonterra Co-operative Support will be funded by one-off savings generated by changes the business is making, such as improving working capital.

Farmers can repay all or part of the loan at any time and no security is required over their shares or any other assets.

Results of maize performance trials released New Zealand’s first Maize Hybrid Performance Trials (MPT) have been completed, and the analysed results for the 2014-15 pilot season are out now.

T

he results booklet, which has been formatted along the same lines as the Foundation for Arable Research’s (FAR) well-known CPT booklet, has been sent out to growers. The booklet presents the results taken from the three specially designed trial sites established in spring of 2014. These were in Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Canterbury. MPT project manager Allister Holmes says FAR maize growers have been requesting an independent maize hybrid testing scheme for a number of years, with the aim of obtaining objective research results rather than marketing information. “We can see that the results of these trials will provide growers with valuable

insight into the various maize hybrids and how to maximise industry efficiency and profitability. The development of the trials is a constructive investment for the industry collectively.” In June of this year, the Maize Technical Committee of New Zealand Plant Breeders Association met to review the first season of trials, and in the early stages were able to see some difference between maize hybrids. The final results will provide growers with similar information to that of the well-established cereals performance trials (CPT). The project’s aim is to deliver objective measurement of the agronomic and quality performance of commercial maize hybrids available to the New Zealand

Processing maize samples for the MPT project.

arable industry. Additional New Zealand maize grain and silage growing regions will be brought into the scheme as experience is gained with the trialling procedures. The MPT programme has been carried out with support from PGGW, the NZPBRA and Pacific Seeds, and analyses of the trial results have been carried out by an independent statistician. MPT trials are to be planted again in spring 2015, and will include hybrids from Corson Maize Seed and Pacific Seed.

Baylis Motor Company Centrally located on Gasson Street, Baylis Motor Company is a one-stop shop which caters for all makes and models of vehicles of all ages, and for individuals as well as fleets.

T

heir large, well-equipped workshop is open five full days a week and, as they believe in putting the needs of their customers first, they are open half-day on Saturdays, too. They have six highly experienced and trained mechanics and eight hoists, and with two Warrant inspectors always on-site, clients never have to wait long for their Warrants of Fitness. This flexibility means that no bookings are needed. They also provide a full range of mechanical repairs, including exhaust and suspension systems, braking systems, servicing, clutches and gear boxes. They have the latest diagnostic scanners on-site too to find out what’s wrong with your car before they begin work, and they are able to work on starter motors and alternators to keep your car running smoothly and safely. Although it might not feel like it yet, summer is not far away and this is a great

time to make sure air conditioning systems are working well and fully gassed. The team at Baylis are on hand to keep you cool when the warm weather finally arrives. They are fleet vehicle specialists, with many local organisations trusting their vehicles to them. Because they know that time off the road is a cost to a company, they can carry out a WoF, service a vehicle and perform a wheel alignment at the same time. Their large workshop, great team and top specification equipment combine to make them an efficient option for all your vehicles’ needs. Baylis have recently invested in a state-ofthe-art 3D wheel alignment machine, one of only two in the South Island. To celebrate, they are running an introductory offer of wheel alignments on your vehicle from only $49+GST. Find them at 20 Gasson St, Sydenham, or call 03 379 6212.

PIT’s Campus Connect branches are opening their doors so people have the opportunity to come and talk to the staff about what they can learn in their neighbourhoods. From 9am to 12pm on Tuesday, September 15, all of the Campus Connect sites, including Madras Street, Bishopdale, Hornby, New Brighton and Rangiora, will simultaneously host an open day so people can have a coffee and a biscuit, and discuss their study options in a relaxed setting. “We want to invite people to a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere where they can learn about Campus Connect and how they can benefit from it. Once they’re inside, they can have a casual chat about what learning options might help them get new skills,” manager of Campus Connect Peter Nock says. Campus Connect offers free computing programmes for those who want to learn at their own pace as well as courses in job hunting and business. The courses provide self-paced, flexible learning for anyone who wants to gain a formal qualification for employment, learn the fundamentals of computing or enhance existing skills. Campus Connect offers around 22 different courses so there is something to suit most people. Nock says the courses are flexible to meet people’s learning needs and what they want to achieve. “It can be intimidating for people to come in and try something new, especially if they haven’t enjoyed their previous

Of these, the most popular courses would involve learning about Microsoft Word, Excel and MYOB,” Nock says. Campus Connect have had over 2500 students studying with them each year, with many of them enhancing their computing skills. To learn more about the Campus Connect Open Days, visit www.cpit.ac.nz, drop into a Campus Connect site to enrol in your first class, or phone 0800 242 476 for more information.

tudying a degree programme in health is more accessible than you might imagine. Enrol in a foundation pre-health programme and you could be studying nursing, sports science, human nutrition or physical activity and health promotion in February 2016. The condensed Certificate in Pre-Health and Science will have you ready to start a health degree in three months instead of six. You’ll be getting started in an industry that is crying out for well-trained people as our population ages and interest in health grows. Nursing is as dependable a profession as it has ever been, but modern nurses have much more opportunity for specialisation and for ongoing training. You can change specialisations and find the conditions that suit you – whether that is mental health, emergency, community nursing or hospital ward. CPIT is known nationally for its nursing programme, but the institute also offers a range of sports exercise and wellness degrees that are ideal for those who love sport, exercise, nutrition and wellness education. These are rapidly expanding areas as interest across health increases. The specialisations of the Bachelor of Applied Science are sports and exercise science, physical activity and health promotion and human nutrition. They lead to jobs such as

personal trainer or group exercise instructor and more advanced roles such as working with elite athletes, or as a sports scientist, community health promoter or private health consultant. The scope for employment is huge. Certificate in Pre-Health and Science students study core subjects, including human biology, cell and microbial biology, maths and academic literacy skills; however, you will also have the opportunity to select specialist subjects including chemistry, introduction to health and social services, interpersonal communication, algebra or statistics, dependant on which pre-health pathway you select. The Certificate in Pre-Health starts on September 21. Find out more at www.cpit.ac.nz or phone 0800 242 476.

Is the section close to all necessary amenities, such as schools, shops, hospitals and public transport? Does it have a view, plenty of sun, privacy and good drainage, or is it prone to flooding, windy and miles away from civilisation? Visit at different times of the day, in different weather conditions and if time is on your side, different times of the year to see how much sun it gets in the winter when the sun is at its lowest. Also, take into consideration its potential as a building site – is access difficult? This

could have an impact on building costs. Find out from your local council what services, such as water, sewage, power, phone and gas, are connected to the site. Check whether there is good television and mobile phone reception, or whether your new address means you have to scale the clothesline and hold your phone in an obscure position just to send a text message. The neighbourhood can also be a contentious issue when purchasing a section. What are the neighbours like, and are their properties well-kept? Are there overhanging trees that could cause a nuisance? Could there be a noise problem from them or their pets? Get a feel of the area, listening for traffic, animals or noisy machinery that is in use around the clock. If there is vacant land adjacent to your proposed site, find out whether the council has any plans for it and what can and can’t be built there. Before buying the section, you also need to find out what is in your council’s district plan, and what resource consents you might need. You also need to request a LIM report, which is held by your local council and outlines all information pertaining to your section regarding rates, land features, environmental issues, restrictions on land or building use, resource consents issued, potential contaminations, details about

septic tanks, hazardous substances and storm water or sewage drains. The report may also contain information about sacred areas and may also provide aerial photographs. This information may help you make the all-important decision to either buy the section or leave it alone. It will also give you an indication as to whether the purchase price is fair. Step 3: chooSe and BrieF the deSigner Before deciding on a designer for your building project, it is necessary to conduct some research in order to find out which type will suit you best. Speak to a few before making your choice and liaise with them periodically once work on the design of your home has commenced. Get involved by gathering ideas for materials, fixtures, fittings and discuss them with your designer.

Step 4: Finding a builder Once the plans are drawn, the materials have been chosen and your finance is arranged, the next step in the building process is likely to be finding a builder. Hiring the right builder is crucial to the whole building experience. People who have been involved in building a house typically report that the key factor in making it a happy experience is finding a good builder and subcontractors. The most common things that soured their building experience were poor workmanship, contractors not turning up, no communication, complaints overlooked, problems left unresolved, messages ignored and delays. In contrast, people who had positive experiences reported that the builders they had hired were highly skilled, honest, knowledgeable, patient and sympathetic to their goals and budget.

TAKING CARE OF THE LITTLE ROOMS

When deciding how many bathrooms and toilets to include in a new home, consider the house size, number of people who will live there, their lifestyles and the budget.

H

aving extra bathrooms, toilets and vanities can make life easier, especially when everyone is getting ready for work at around the same time, but the downside is extra cleaning. The little rooms may be located more conveniently near the bedrooms while a separate toilet with washbasin is located nearer the living space and garage for guest use and to suit the man who likes to tinker over a motor or potter outside. Latest bathroom fashion oozes elegance and luxury with fittings and accessories that allow pampering. This feeling of opulence might be instilled through gilt-trimmed porcelain baths, basins and mirrors, or features such as anti-fog mirrors and a bathroom television. The trend is also still moving away from fitted baths to free-standing units and

soaking tubs that give a more spacious look, though ensure there will be sufficient space around these for cleaning. Alternatively, the bath might be given up for a spacious shower area where there are multi-heads for sensual indulgent showering, hand showers for spraying water around and even a steam option while a seat might be placed or built inside. The shower might be separated from the bathroom by a simple sheet of embossed glass with a comfy chair and mat used to soften the hard surfaces in a larger room. Hanging vanities are holding on, as are twin basins in en suites with extra storage gained through open shelving. It is practical to back vanities with tiles. Quartz and black tiles are still fashionable, and small mosaic tiles have become popular along with feature floor tiles for bringing colour and interest to a room while warmth can be added with

underfloor heating. Bathroom fashion colours are varied, however, grey is replacing white. Add in a natural feel with plants, a window that looks out to a green glade, wood and metallic features, or even recycled materials. Give some thought, too, to choosing a stylishly suitable toilet – one with smooth sleek lines that is easy to clean, has a soft-close seat and water-saving facility. Check with your builder as to the type of fitting before making your final choice. With a little thought, you can have luxuriously fashionable little rooms that will work for your household needs and budget.

The big spring clean

T

he spring clean has a long history, and for good reason. Spring is the first opportunity to open up windows and doors, and let warm, dry air into the house, helping remove winter moisture and any additional dampness created during; for example, carpet cleaning. It’s not just about making the house look better, but also preserving the fixtures and fittings in your home, and maintaining a healthy environment by removing unwanted dust, bugs and maybe mould. Mattress care is a good example. We spend up a third of our life in bed, and it’s a dirty place. We shed skin that is devoured by millions of dust mites, and we sweat. It all causes deterioration that leads to a worse sleep. Vacuuming the mattress, turning it over and leaving it exposed to sunlight are simple things to add to your spring cleaning list for great dividends in the long run. Making a list is a good idea, albeit a little disheartening as it gets longer. You do, however, get a small reward as you tick off each item. Spring cleaning is one of those activities that is most satisfying when finished (rather than during), and lends itself to a management method called the salami technique. Use small steps to reach your goal, like slicing a salami, rather than trying to eat it whole, and you’ll get through your list before you know it. If you need a list, Google ‘spring clean’ and customise to your particular circumstances. A comprehensive clean is also a good opportunity to review your possessions. There has been some great innovations in storage solutions recently, including drawers built into stairs and into the kickboards in kitchens, but you have to ask yourself – if I need that much

Many hands: Get the whole family involved in your spring cleaning!

storage, maybe I just own too much, and do I really need it all? Research in the USA showed there was around 300,000 items in the average home, and many of us are probably not that far behind. This has spawned a movement called minimalism, where people reduce what they own. It doesn’t mean living a Spartan lifestyle where you go without; people who try it say it just feels more liberating. It’s hard to do though, as we tend to be loss averse – we place a high value on what we own, and simply don’t part with it easily. It’s much easier to clean a minimalist home, and much easier to make it look stylish. If you want to rid yourself of extra bits and bobs, try putting them on the local neighbourhood Facebook page or choose to have a garage sale, with an early start and day of fun and conversation with people. Spring is the season associated with renewal and growth, and it’s a good opportunity to use that increased energy and enthusiasm you have to get your renovation projects underway, too.

TRIP TO FIJI

with every Onyx Home!

A PERFECT FIT! A purpose-designed plan to suit your lifestyle - for LESS than a standard plan!

The management team of Onyx Homes are quite simply some of the best and most experienced people in the industry. It’s through this experience that Onyx Homes wants to bring to their customers a better standard of home that is often less than the standard-plan-built homes of their competitors. Onyx believe that everyone is unique, so why settle for a standardplan-home when you can have a purpose-designed plan to suit exactly your lifestyle and for less than a standard plan? A perfect fit! This is testament to our customers who have been amazed at the savings with Onyx, but also hadn’t realised their budget would allow for a such quality spec and design.

Just a few examples of custom designed homes for Onyx Homes clients
