Lincoln Primary School is calling on parents to contact Canterbury’s top police officer to express their concerns about a “serious traffic issue” after a series of near misses. Principal Vivienne Butcher said bad driving, road layout and the town’s growing population had contributed to an increasingly dangerous situation on James St, outside the school. She had called on parents to contact district commander Superintendent John Price in order to express their concerns after several incidents involving vehicles coming close to hitting schoolchildren as they crossed the road. It would be “everyone’s worst nightmare” if a child was hit and killed, she said. “I happened to be on road patrol myself when a car accelerated at great speed through the road patrol. It was a very scary experience for me and the patrol because one patrol member was standing on the central island,” she said. • Turn to page 7

Selwyn residents owe almost $2.2 million in unpaid rates. District council corporate services manager Greg Bell said the outstanding amount of $2,171,099, owed as at June 30, was four per cent of the annual rates take for the year. The largest amount owed by a single ratepayer was $22,299. During the last financial year, July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015,

the district council recovered $1,904,283 in unpaid rates. This included 12 separate cases where the district council took the money it was owed out of home owners’ mortgages. A legal clause gives local authorities the right to force people’s banks or finance companies to cover unpaid rates – which in some instances can put a mortgage into default. If a homeowner has no mortgage, authorities can go the high

court for an order to sell or lease the property. However, Mr Bell confirmed no such orders were obtained during the year. “Action to recover unpaid rates from the last financial year is continuing currently,” Mr Bell said. A 10 per cent penalty is applied to each instalment of rates not paid by the due date. An additional 10 per cent is charged on all outstanding rates at the end of the financial year. Mr Bell said a series of follow–

up letters were sent to ratepayers who got behind. “The council offers ratepayers who get behind with their rates payments the opportunity to pay off the debt in affordable instalments if needed,” Mr Bell said. “We have had a rates EasyPay direct debit system in place for some time which allows ratepayers to set up weekly, fortnightly, monthly or quarterly rates instalment payments to spread the cost of rates payments.”

Drainage system upgrade ramps up BY TOM DOUDNEY Work is well under way on a major upgrade of Leeston’s drainage system which should ensure significant flooding like that which hit the town two years ago will not be repeated. Sandbags were required to protect High St businesses and a number of residential properties were inundated after 200mm of rain fell during one week in June 2013. The flooding led residents to renew long-standing calls for the stormwater system to be upgraded. The $1.7 million work, which will not be finally completed until 2023, is intended to ensure the system can cope with a one in 100 year rainfall event. Leeston Community Committee chairman Lloyd Clausen said it was good to see the work progressing. “We won’t see the full benefit until the whole lot is completed but every bit you do is going to make a difference and will be to the benefit of the town and that’s good positive stuff, really.” Stage one, which will be completed in October, involves contractors upgrading a drain to release water from the Country Lane wetlands. The drain passes through Ellesmere Community Hospital land to Manse Rd and the High St drain between Manse Rd and the Ellesmere A&P Show-

grounds culverts. Widening and deepening the drains and increasing the size of culverts will allow water from Leeston Creek to be diverted around the township when the remaining stages of the bypass are completed. During the next stage of works the drain along Manse Rd to High St, the showgrounds culvert under High St and parts of the drain along Volckman Rd are to be upgraded. A third and final stage of the bypass works will involve creating a swale between Leeston Creek and the Country Lane wetland through the land known locally as the Martin Block. This would allow water to be diverted away from the Leeston

town centre when heavy rain occurs. The district council has budgeted to undertake the Harmans Rd drainage extension in 2022/23 subject to consultation and granting of consents. Existing pipes in Leeston are expected to have capacity for a one in two-year rainfall event and newer pipes can cope with a one in 10-year rainfall event. Some flooding will still occur in Leeston during very heavy rainfall due to the existing capacity of these pipes but the amount of surface water is expected to be greatly reduced as the stormwater upgrade is completed. The district council is also working on improving the existing open drains and pipes in the town.

Grapevine identification technology turns up a notch A new type of genetic test being performed by a liquid-handling robot at Lincoln University is taking DNA testing to the next level. The test has the ability to deliver five times the standard amount of data used to identify grapevine varieties. Developed by the university’s Dr Darrell Lizamore and delivered by Zebra Biotech, the new transposon marker test is not available anywhere else in the world. While botanists have traditionally identified and classified varieties by their leaf shape, DNA testing is now the preferred technique, with short repeat marker tests the most popular form of identification. Sample genetic profiles are screened against an extensive profile database, allowing comparison with more than 1000 varieties. Analysing specific genetic markers provides information on variety and species, giving nurseries confidence that they are selling the right varieties, and preventing grape growers from planting the wrong vines. However, short repeat marker tests only analyse between 10 and 20 markers, and sometimes produce ambiguous results due to

changes within this limited set. The transposon marker test gets around this by analysing between 50 and 100 markers per sample, and focuses on the most variable parts of the plant’s DNA. Dr Lizamore’s experience in DNA testing goes back to his student days at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. During this time he worked on the development of genetic profile tests for abalone to assist police in tracking caches of the smuggled seafood, which has a high market value. “The short repeat DNA tests we carry out on vines are similar to those used for paternity testing, crime scenes and so on. The main difference is how we extract the DNA,” Dr Lizamore said. Dr Lizamore and his PHD supervisor Dr Chris Winefield are using their new understanding of the natural role transposons play in altering vine DNA to create new vines with specific qualities such as disease resistance. This offers an alternative to current breeding programmes as a way to improve the crops planted in New Zealand. With the support of New Zealand Wine, they have already created about 200 new plants which will be of interest to local nurseries and growers.

Time for houses to sell takes longer BY TOM DOUDNEY

Houses in Southbridge are taking more than three times as long to sell as they were four years ago. That’s in spite of some of the lowest sale prices of the district’s larger towns. Latest figures from the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand show the average time it took to sell a house in the town during the last 12 months was 70 days. During this time there were 23 sales with a median (mid-point) price of $351,000. The median number of days to sell have increased steadily from 20 for the 12 months ending in August 2012. The figure was 38 in 2013 and 42 in 2013. Matson & Allen real estate agent Stephan Knowler said he was finding it a bit of a challenge to sell houses in Southbridge. He said that after the February 2011 earthquake there had been a demand for houses in places like Southbridge as people left the city and the housing supply struggled to keep up with demand. That was no longer true to the same extent. “When the market changes in terms of the supply and competitive prices closer to Christchurch, you find that people don’t tend to go out as willingly and you’re back to selling more to people within the local area as opposed to those coming out from Christchurch, prepared to buy half an hour out of town,” he said.

“I am selling a couple of really nice properties which I think are priced okay but there aren’t the same number of people coming out to look at them as there were post-earthquake.” The town with the second highest number of days to sell over the last 12 months was Darfield, with 44 on average. Houses sold quickest in Rolleston, taking a median 32 days. Properties across Selwyn have been taking longer to sell in general – a median 39 days last month, compared to 35 in July and 30 in August last year. Overall, Selwyn house prices dipped slightly last month, falling to a median of $525,000, down from $530,000 in July. However, that was still above the median price in August last year of $507,000. More than half of last month’s sales were in Rolleston, where 36

homes were sold, compared to 33 across the rest of the district. The town with the second highest sales volume was Lincoln with eight. Sales in Rolleston were down from the 43 in July but higher than the 24 in June. Professionals real estate agent Sean Powell said it was common for the market to fluctuate from month to month. “It does chop and change and sometimes there is no rhyme or reason why people move when they do.” Median house prices for the district’s larger towns over the last 12 months were highest in Prebbleton at $672,500. The median August price for Canterbury-Westland was $412,000, up three per cent in a year, with homes in the region taking a median of 30 days to sell. Nationally, the median price

Two Izone loans outstanding BY TOM DOUDNEY

Two Izone businesses account for the $2.6 million currently owed by private organisations on loans paid for by Selwyn ratepayers. PGG Wrightson has $1.8 million to pay back for the reconstruction of racking infrastructure to new earthquake standards. The initial $2.4 million loan was part of the lease arrangement that the company and the district council entered into in 2009 when the seed store was built. Cafe Izone still has $775,999 to pay off on an initial $800,000 mortgage which was taken out last year to buy the building and land. A possible $8 million loan to

Central Plains Water, to be considered by the district council in November after public consultation wraps up next month, would more than quadruple the amount of money it currently has lent out to private interests. District council chief executive David Ward said the loans had interest rates of eight and seven per cent respectively. They were part of the council’s investment portfolio and of an overall strategy of developing Izone to be “as successful as it has been.” Additionally, the district council is owed $310,764 for loans it has made to a number of community organisations. The figure

HAVE YOUR SAY Are loans like these good ways to be investing ratepayers’ money? Email your view to tom.doudney@ starmedia.kiwi is slightly lower than the one previously supplied by Mr Ward in a letter which appeared in the Selwyn Times on September 1. Mr Ward said the lower amount was confirmed after further checking some details. The community loans include: • $8500 in various cultural and recreational loans to organisations including Lincoln Bowling

Club, Dunsandel Bowling Club, Lincoln Netball Club and Darfield Rugby Club. • $36,250 for sporting clubs in Ellesmere, including $11,250 to the Ellesmere Golf club and $25,000 to the Ellesmere Clay Target club. • $6360 to the Lake Coleridge Tourism Group to assist with the publication of local history book West of Windwhistle. • $200,000 to the Vintage Village Trust for the Abbeyfield residential facility. • $2000 to Darfield Netball for court resurfacing. • $57,654 to the Weedons Country Club for a well.

Star Media acquires CTV

Charlotte Smulders

Star Media, publishers of Selwyn Times and Christchurch’s leading free newspapers and several specialist magazines, has acquired CTV. Managing director  Pier Smulders said CTV would strengthen the locally-owned Star Media Group, as the company continues to reach more and more people across Canterbury. “We have a big newspaper and magazine footprint   and   the addition of CTV to our group will increase our reach, and it will improve our service to our readers, viewers and advertisers,” he said. Star Media is owned by Mr Smulders and his wife Charlotte, who is also a co-director. Mrs Smulders will take over the running of the TV and digital streaming side of the business. Said Mrs Smulders: “This is an exciting

time for Star Media. CTV is an incredibly strong Canterbury brand which we look forward to reinvigorating and seeing it strengthen to again become a much-loved channel for Cantabrians.’’ The company publishes the twice-weekly The Star, weekly community papers Nor’West News, Western News, Southern View, Pegasus Post, Selwyn Times and the fortnightly Bay Harbour News.   The magazines it publishes include Style, Kiwi Gardener and Rugby News and a host of other niche publications. Star Media also has the city’s iconic fun run City2Surf, the Home Show and on Sunday will stage the Bridal Show. The Daily Fix, the company’s live streamed show from 6-7pm, will continue on CTV, said Mr Smulders.

School wants action after near misses • From page 1 “Any loss of control as she accelerated around that corner and that lady driver could have had an accident right where we were standing.” Ms Butcher said she hope that if enough parents expressed their concerns directly to Superintendent Price, a stronger police presence might be introduced near the crossing during peak school hours. She was planning to contact the district council about possible roading changes such as moving the pedestrian crossing further up James St to get it further away from the intersection with North Belt. Cars often pulled out of the intersection at a great speed when they spotted a gap in the traffic and the school crossing was only a few metres away from the intersection. She also thought a 40km/h school zone with flashing signs should be imposed on the road which was currently 50km/h. District council asset engineer transportation Mark Chamberlain said staff would be contacting the school to discuss their concerns. “We are aware of concerns with the crossing which do seem to be more about driver behaviour rather than the location of the crossing.”

My wife Marguerite and I run Christchurch Community Music out of our Greendale home. It is a non-profit organisation which is mainly for older people, rather than the kids. The idea is to get them out from behind the television and back into playing music and doing things. We have been doing it for about 15 years now. Are these people who have previously recorded music, perhaps when they were younger? Some have, some haven’t. A lot of them have started their music career many years ago, quite a lot in the 1970s and 80s, but maybe haven’t performed much for the last 20 years or so. What sort of age would most of them be? I think our youngest people who come along are in their late 30s or early 40s and the oldest ones are

in their 80s. It’s pretty much a mix of music lovers and the musicians themselves. What do you do with their recordings? We really record them for the musicians themselves. I think we have released about 30 albums in the last two or three years. We tend to release about eight or 10 albums per year and we usually put out about 50 to 100 copies of each. They are vanity or boutique recordings really and the musicians circulate them themselves. Do you ever work with anyone well known? Last week we finished a recording for Jean Barkman who won the over-60s category and the overall trophy at the Gold Guitar (annual country music awards held in Gore) last year. It was quite nice to be asked to produce her album. Some of the people we work with have been reasonably well-

known in the 1970s and 80s but have been on the outer for the last 20 years or so. Bruce Leeming, who was well known locally, recorded here and I have also recorded Reid Hudson who was a nationwide television star back in the day. I guess it shows people don’t stop being creative after they have disappeared from public view. Absolutely. I think age is not really an issue, it’s more that the

young people are trying to make it to number one, whereas the older people are making music for the sake of making music. It doesn’t make what they do any less or more valid. How did you come to live in a converted church? We were looking for a venue with good acoustics for all the music stuff we do and the place just happened to come up for sale. It was a Baptist church originally which was converted to a pri-

vate residence in about 1990. We bought it just before the earthquake and in fact I have one of the machines which measured the magnitude 7.1 (September 2010) in my garage. Eh? A seismic machine in your garage? Being an ex-public building it is home to one of an array of more than machines set up to record the effects of an Alpine Fault earthquake on Canterbury. Mine was the closest machine to the 7.1.

lesser-known musicians We were lifted up by a metre of permanent ground displacement here. It has been quite fascinating talking to the boffins that have come through here because of the machine. It was a wee hive of activity for a short while after the earthquake. Is it a big complex machine with lots of flashing lights and things? It’s about a 600 sq mm black box bolted to the ground and I am sure when it’s opened up there are some complicated electronics in it. To be honest, I never look, it just sits in the corner. It was there when we moved in.

Tell me about your background? Before I came to New Zealand, I was visual media manager of the Scottish education board, so I was in charge of all their multimedia before it was all done on computer – it was working with recording studios and film studios and all that sort of thing. When did you come to New Zealand? I’ve been here since 1984. I started up an advertising company when I came here which I still run from home here. It’s called The Advertising Clubb.

I did all sorts of work for Plunket for 17 years, Mainland Cheese packaging for years, and a lot of brands around Christchurch, like Mike Greer’s logo. I have done close to 31,000 design projects since we starting in Dunedin. We print a lot of signs and posters from home here. What sort of other things do you manufacture from your home? I have the the contract for a new design for a bass guitar done by a guy who lives in Christchurch. You might think that manufacturing a guitar is a fairly major task compared to a poster but it’s not really – it’s only cutting out shapes. We have got one of the biggest wood carving machines in the South Island, probably, and you really need to see it to understand what we do. We design and print clothing as well. We did the graphics on the jerseys for the visiting Argentinian rugby team when they were over here. Are you a musician yourself? I play guitar and a variety of dif-

Information sought for old family photo TIMES PAST: The Lincoln and Districts Historical Society is seeking information about this old photograph belonging to Don and Margaret Watson. The photo comes from the Watsons’ family collection and they are wanting to find out where and when the photo was taken and who is in it. They believe it could have been taken in the Springston or Tai Tapu area because Mr Watson’s family originally settled in these areas.

NICE VIEW: Keen walkers can explore the magnificent Rakaia Gorge as part of The Breeze Walking Festival. email active@selwyn.govt.nz “The walks are a chance for people to keep fit, get to know some of the hidden gems of Selwyn a little better and meet new friends,” district council recreation adviser Dave Tippett said. Mr Tippett said if there was enough interest from the community, the district council was hoping to help establish a regular mothers and babies walking group in Selwyn. “We know that there are lots of young families in our district. The walk would be an opportunity for people to keep fit in a supportive environment while also visiting different parts of Selwyn which may be popular with people who are new to our district.”

Selwyn residents can also join walks further afield in Christchurch and Waimakariri that are being held during The Breeze Walking Festival. Planned events include walks alongside the Avon River, at Sumner and South Brighton beaches and at the Port Hills by night. A Great Dog Walk will take place at Roto Kohatu Lakes and a Pukeko Stomp walk for kids is planned at Travis Wetland which includes storytelling.

Rare photos of Gandhi to display in Lincoln BY TOM DOUDNEY A private collection of seldomseen photographs documenting the life of Mahatma Gandhi will be on public display in Lincoln next month. The 34 photographs of the prominent Indian political and spiritual leader were taken by photographer Dr Dahdboy Rustam Wadia during the 1940s. The collection, previously owned by the New Zealand Peace Foundation and now held by Lincoln residents Surinder and Archna Tandon, will be displayed at the Lincoln Event Centre on October 3-4 and again on October 10-11. Some smaller copies of the photographs will also be on display at the Selwyn Gallery in Darfield, as part of Darfield Art Week which runs from October 9-18. The collection includes portraits and informal photographs of Gandhi with his friends, followers and other major political leaders of the Indian independence movement such as Nehru and Jinnah. Gandhi is portrayed in quiet villages, public gatherings and formal political meetings. The collection was previously stored at the peace foundation’s

The Tandons, through their association with the foundation’s former South Island branch director Kate Dewes, offered to safeguard the collection and have kept it ever since. Mrs Tandon said this would be the first time they had put the entire collection on display, although some of the portraits were briefly exhibited at the Christ-

church Art Gallery five years ago. “It’s a great opportunity, I think, for the council and the Selwyn district as a whole.” Gandhi achieved international fame as a symbol for pacifism, following his use of non-violent protest in the struggle for India’s independence from Britain. The exhibition is being presented by the Selwyn Arts Trust and the district council.

Dressed with success Model Esther Gao displays clothes designed by Lincoln High School students Mandy Herman and Brittany Glassey, which have impressed top fashion designers in the nationwide competition, Brother Design Stars. Mandy, 13, and Brittany, 18, have been selected as finalists in each of their age groups. Mandy attends a Christchurch sewing school, Sew Know How, and has been chosen as one of three fashion finalists in the year 7-9 age group. Judges Kayla Jurlina and Celine Rita loved Mandy’s entry (left) and commented on the simplicity of her design. They said it brought edginess with a fashion and sport look. Brittany, from Rolleston, has been chosen as one of three fashion finalists in the year 10-13 age group. The judging panel said they were wowed by the simple style of her design, her use of fabric and its uniqueness.

Bright ideas for the future Picnic table makeovers and mazes with native birds were among the winning children ideas for sprucing up Selwyn townships. Lincoln University students held a “My Town” competition for school children on what they would like to see in their communities. Ladbrooks School won, with an idea to decorate picnic tables at local parks. Leeston Primary School came second with a maze, using native plants and birds. Third-placed Dream Big, from another Ladbrooks School group, aimed to collect second-hand books to give to children who needed them, and read to students who do not have English as their first language. Lincoln University students run ‘Lend a Hand’, an initiative started in 2011 to give back to the community, which has raised funds for a number of charities such as the Van Ash Deaf Education Centre, Burwood Spinal Unit and Youthline. This year they tried something different, running the ‘My Town’ children’s design competition. “Our mission was to encourage action in the community and give the children of the Selwyn District a helping hand in being creative, and making their town a good place to live,” organiser Emma Petersen said. “Children are major users of public space, experiencing it from a different perspective to anyone else and we need to embrace this.”

The Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee is looking for two new members. It is one of seven Canterbury zone committees calling for applications from interested community members as part of an annual renewal process. The committees were set up by Environment Canterbury to help develop the Canterbury Water Management Strategy.

Rolleston’s first art gallery opened on Wednesday. Expoz’Art is owned by Christchurch artist Katrina McGettigan. Her own art will be displayed in the gallery and there will be rotating monthly exhibitions featuring other artists.

Principals

BRIGHT IDEAS: Ladbrooks School’s Power Paint team celebrate winning first prize in the My Town competition. The group ran a series of workshops at local primary schools in preparation for the presentations at Lincoln University. The Future Leader Scholars would work with the winning team to help implement their idea.

Ms Petersen said children saw the world differently and this was something which showed through in the designs. “We often get so caught up in the big problems, worrying that there’s not enough time, not

enough money and we are not big enough to make a big change. We get caught up in the big problems. We forget to smell the roses. “That is what the children of My Town have reminded us to do.”

Glentunnel School principal Chris Bascand will end his 10 years with the school on Friday. He has taken the vacant principal’s position at Lower Moutere School in the Tasman region and will be replaced at Glentunnel by former Omarama Primary School principal Dion Stechmann. Prebbleton School principal Mike Hogan is also stepping down on Friday and the board of trustees said it had received a “large number of high quality candidates” for his position.

SIGHTS AND SCENTS: The best blooms of about 100 gardeners were on display in the Darfield Recreation and Community Centre for the Darfield Garden Club’s annual Spring Flower Show on Tuesday last week. The best flower in show was a camelia, one of those pictured above, grown by Margaret Seaton. Club secretary Carol Williams said many entrants’ gardens were about a month behind where they would usually be at this time of year due to bad weather in winter. “I must say that in previous years the spring show has been much larger, however, it was a pleasure to see lots of lovely colours to brighten up our spring day.” Trees For Canterbury manager Steve Busch was a guest speaker at the event.

Super season for Ellesmere netball team Ellesmere College Senior A netball player Tori Murray reflects on a season full of highlights. This year, the Ellesmere College Senior A Netball team has had a great season. We moved up to the SuperNet reserve grade in the Wednesday competition in Christchurch, won the senior grade in the Saturday competition and were placed in the top eight in the South Island Secondary

Schools Netball Tournament. Usually, the senior netball tournament teams compete during the Wednesday town competition and play for different clubs on Saturday. However, the girls and our management team decided that in order to have a greater chance of being placed higher, the Senior A team would play in both competitions. The Saturday team consisted of Courtney Palmer, Kate Palmer, Olivia Johnson, Neesha Imeson, Awhina Dickson, Kerra Johanson,

Anna McCormick, Hannah Allan and myself. We represented the Southbridge club in the senior grade, which allowed our team to grow and further develop our skills, resulting in us winning the final against Rolleston 40-29. Prior to our great final, our tournament team, which included the Saturday girls and Kim van den Beuken, Brionne Fleming and Jess Carter, played Riccarton A to earn a position in the SuperNet reserve

grade played at Pioneer stadium and Cowles Stadium in Christchurch. We were eventually placed fifth. SuperNet reserve at times was tough for our team, but it was definitely great preparation for the South Island Secondary Schools Netball Tournament that was held the following week. With the amount of practise and hard work that our team had put in, we were determined to beat last year’s placing at the tournament. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side for the first half of the tournament but we quickly adapted and had a great win of 51-14 against Kaikorai Valley College. By the end of our third game, we were unbeaten and we had achieved our first goal of making the top 16. In the second round, we played against Westland High School where we had to play into extra time but our team managed to pull through by one goal. After playing eight games of netball over four days, the team lost only two games and achieved our goal of making the top eight, placing seventh out of 32 teams. The Senior A netball team have played exceptionally well this year and this would not have happened without the dedication and passion of our coaches Kath Palmer and Tylie Cridge. We would also like to thank Mrs Thomas and Mrs Palmer for organising and helping during our main fundraiser (the ball gown parade), Kala Teale for being our cook at the tournament, as well as the school and the wider community for their support.

Selwyn takes football title

SELWYN TIMES

Amy Adams Selwyn MP

More Selwyn towns in running for broadband BY AMY ADAMS, SELWYN MP

CHAMPIONS: The Selwyn United Football Club’s 12th‐grade boys’ team, the Colts, recently won Mainland Football’s division one title. This is the first time a boys’ or men’s Selwyn team has won a regional football title. The league was made up of the six top‐ranked teams of 11 to 12‐year‐ olds from a total of 48 teams throughout Canterbury. All of the Colts players have been selected to represent Selwyn at the South Island Football Tournament in Blenheim in early October. The Colts scored 38 goals in 10 games - 18 more goals than second‐placed Halswell United man‐ aged. Coach Martin Allen spoke proudly of the team’s effort. “These boys are the perfect example of what can be achieved with the right attitudes. I am very pleased for the boys that they secured the title, as I know it means a lot to them.”

Darfield, West Melton and Leeston are included on a long list of more than 110 places being considered for inclusion in the next phase of the Ultra-Fast Broadband initiative. The list was issued as part of a request for proposals for the next stage of rolling out fast, reliable broadband to New Zealanders. The Government understands that New Zealanders are keen for better connectivity and that is why we are extending the successful UFB initiative from a target of 75 per cent of New Zealanders to at least 80 per cent. The long list is made up of the next largest towns not covered by the first phase of the UFB initiative. These towns have been determined based on current population and projected population sizes in 2023 and informed by council submissions. However, it is important to understand that not all those towns on the list will get fibre and that others that are not listed could also end up with fibre. The RFP is a critical step in deciding which communities are next in line to get fibre and the companies that will deliver it as part of a competitive bid

process. The RFP has been issued by the Government-owned company, Crown Fibre Holdings, and bidders have until October 28 to respond. There is an agreed sum of up to $210 million in available Crown funding from the Future Investment Fund and the Government’s focus is on getting faster broadband to as many people as possible within the available funding. Faster, more reliable connectivity is the single most important thing we can do for regional economic development. We want people living outside the bigger centres to enjoy the economic, health and education benefits that fibre is delivering to 33 per cent of New Zealand’s towns and cities, and to encourage network builders to make proposals that will help the Government take this next step. Crown Fibre Holdings will assess bids, town-by-town, on a commercial basis to determine which towns will receive UFB. Then commercial negotiations can begin. Crown Fibre Holdings aims to have its commercial negotiations sorted and contracts signed within the first half of next year, and to commence building shortly afterwards. The UFB1 build is on track to be fully completed by 2019 and it is expected UFB2 will be completed by 2022.

Happy Birthday Che Bello It all started with an idea that Dunsandel and its surrounding areas could really use somewhere to buy beautiful gifts for loved ones and wee treats for their own homes. Now nearly five years on Che Bello is twice the size and so diverse in stock that we really do feel we cater for everyone. What does “Che Bello” mean? I hear lots of people ask….well in Italian it means How Beautiful. When setting up the store I felt the name itself depicted what my dream was for the store to stock beautiful goods and gifts. It was also slightly away from the usual which we also like….to stand out. We feel very lucky to be here after setting up just three weeks after the first earthquake…..thankfully this act didn’t stop us just held us up for a week or two. With all the local and travelling through support we have grown into quite a destination store, stocking all things beautiful. As time has gone by and fashion and home trends have changed so have we. We introduced our fashion label Vigorella and ball gowns to our collection of stock 2-3 years ago and are now one of the leading retailers in this field in the Canterbury region. We cater for the young ones too with an ever changing stock selection featuring toys that last and help your children grow. From chapter, and board books, brain box and dress ups. We are really proud of what gifts ideas we have in store. We also stock Surmanti natural and organic products and are stockists of the Prenzel range, both made in New Zealand.

FOOD bite Suddenly, I’m thinking salads for lunch instead of soup. It must be spring. The first spears of asparagus are thrusting up through the soil, my rhubarb is sprouting bright red stalks and our local hydroponic strawberries are in full blush, writes JAN BILTON

seasonings. Set aside. Makes about 1&1/2 cups. Trim the asparagus and place on a wire rack in a single layer. Sprinkle the tea into a wok. Place the rack about 4cm over the tea. Cover with foil. Place a lid on the wok and smoke the asparagus on low heat until it is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Don’t over-smoke as the asparagus will become too strong. Cut into 1cm pieces. Spread the ciabatta with the garlic cannellini then top with the asparagus. Garnish. — Makes 10

Serve with coffee or add extra rhubarb and whipped cream and serve as a dessert.

INGREDIENTS Roasted Rhubarb: 400g trimmed rhubarb 1/4 cup caster sugar Cake: 1/2 cup thick custard 250g butter 3/4 cup caster sugar 1 tsp each: finely grated orange rind, vanilla essence 4 large eggs 2 cups self-raising flour 1/2 tsp baking powder

ROASTED ASPARAGUS WITH OLIVE TAPENADE

METHOD Preheat the oven to 200C. To roast the rhubarb, wash the rhubarb, shake off the excess water and cut into 5cm lengths. Place in a roasting pan just large enough to hold it in a single layer. Sprinkle with the caster sugar and toss to cover evenly. Cover with foil. Roast for about 20 minutes, remove the foil and continue cooking until the juices are syrupy. Cool. To prepare the cake, first lightly grease a 23cm spring-form cake pan. Line with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 180C. Place 3 tablespoons of the custard aside in a bowl. Beat the butter, remaining custard, caster sugar, orange rind and vanilla essence, until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition. Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix to combine. Spoon one-third of the mixture into the cake pan then scatter with a third of the rhubarb. Repeat twice. Dot the tops with the reserved custard. Bake for 40 minutes, cover with foil and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes, until a skewer inserted in then centre comes out clean. Cool in the pan. Great served dusted with icing sugar.

INGREDIENTS 200g strawberries, hulled and sliced 3 tbsp caster sugar 3/4 cup self-raising flour Finely grated rind 1 lemon 4-5 tbsp plain yoghurt 1 tbsp strawberry jam, warmed Icing sugar and mint leaves to serve

Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Stand for 5 minutes then turn on to serving plates. Spoon the remaining strawberries and their juice on top. Dust with icing sugar, and garnish with mint leaves. — Serves 4

SMOKED ASPARAGUS BRUSCHETTA WITH GARLIC CANNELLINI I used Earl Grey tea for smoking the asparagus but lap sang souchong tea or hickory chips are also good.

METHOD

INGREDIENTS

Place the strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the caster sugar. Preheat the oven to 225C. Lightly grease four non-stick Texas muffin holes. Sift the flour into a bowl. Add the remaining caster sugar and lemon rind. Add the yoghurt and mix to a soft dough. Turn on to a lightly floured surface and knead gently, until smooth. Roll into a 20cm square. Brush with the jam. Place twothirds of the strawberries in a single layer over the dough leaving a 2cm border at the top and bottom. Roll up to form a log. Cut into 4 even pinwheels. Place 1 pinwheel in each muffin hole, cut-side up. Press down gently.

Garlic Cannellini: 1 cup frozen peas 400g can cannellini, drained and rinsed 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed 1 tbsp each: olive oil, lemon juice Salt and pepper to taste Topping: 10 medium asparagus spears 1/4 cup tea for smoking 10 hearty slices ciabatta or similar, toasted Herbs to garnish

METHOD To make the tapenade, place the olives, capers, garlic, olive oil and pepper into a food processor or blender and process, until finely chopped. Preheat the oven to 200C. Snap the tough ends off the asparagus and trim the stalks if necessary. Place in a small roasting pan. Toss together with the olive oil. Season. Roast for 5 minutes, turn the spears over then continue roasting until crisp-tender, about 5-10 minutes, depending on the thickness. Serve the asparagus hot or at room temperature topped with the tapenade. Great accompanied by French bread. — Serves 4 as a starter or light meal.

Fruity burst of flavours By Yvonne Lorkin If you’re seeking southern inspiration this week then look no further than this lot. You’ll get change from $30 and they’re absolutely delicious to drink. Lawson’s Dry Hills Reserve Pinot Noir 2013, $28 ★★★★★ Marcus Wright and Becs Wiffen are like the Torvill and Dean of New Zealand winemaking teams. The emotion involved in drinking this wine is like watching those athletes ice-skate at the 1984 Olympics all over again. This is a wine where art and science dance around on your palate, unfurling impossible amounts of flavour in perfect harmony — clove, cherry, truffle, pepper, black tea, pomegranate, cocoa and the rest. Greywacke Marlborough Riesling 2013, $28 ★★★★ 1/2 A zesty pear and green apple vibe with mandarin, honeysuckle and limey loveliness. It’s still such a young thing with years, possibly even decades, of life ahead of it but for now enjoy the juicy citrus taste, crunchy-crisp texture and excellent length of flavour. Sam Hunt Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013, $24 ★★★★ Our favourite bard has collaborated with some bright young things to create a range of wines and this is the southernmost example. Beautifully aromatic, it shows red rose, wild thyme, black cherry, berries and sweet tea up front. In the mouth it has exotic red fruits, layers of spice, and some serious sip-factor.

Not all first aid certificates

are created equal While first aid courses must achieve prescribed New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) standards to be certified, not all training providers deliver the same course.

T

here can be big differences in first aid courses between a range of training providers. Some courses range from teaching only the basic NZQA specified content and nothing else, to providing detailed and comprehensive content designed to familiarise participants to a wide range of likely emergencies. Providers offering shortened courses or courses not meeting NZQA training requirements are now in the spotlight. NZQA and the Department of Labour have published a factsheet to outline requirements for providers, learners and employers for first aid training based on currently registered NZQA unit standards. Below are a summary of what we think you should know. Course differences Training providers can market their courses under a wide range of names such as Essential First Aid, Workplace First Aid or Comprehensive First Aid and many other eye-catching titles. The term workplace can vary from a small office to a large factory where the risks and potential injuries are just as wide. Employers should be cautious in thinking that a one-day workplace first aid course will meet their needs in industries such as construction, engineering, forestry and industrial. More advanced learning is important to meet the proper workplace assessments and meet health and safety obligations. The content of courses can also vary. Employers should check to see the first aid course

is relevant to their particular industry risks. If there are risks of falling, or medium to high injury, then take careful look in the shortened courses as these subjects may not be covered. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that employees attend courses appropriate to their industry risks. Unit standard-based first aid training These are the minimum requirements for both the initial and refresher training. The minimum duration of first aid training and assessment will be for training based on: • Unit standards 6400, 6401 (or 26552) and 6402 (or 26551), a minimum of 12 hours’ training and assessment • Unit standards 6401 (or 26551) and 6402 (or 26552), a minimum of eight hours’ training and assessment • For refresher training, where the learner’s certificate is no older than two years and three months from date of issue, a minimum of six hours’ training and assessment. First aid training must cover the outcomes of the NZQA first aid unit standards being assessed and any additional modules identified by the employer through the workplace risk assessment process as outlined in Department of Labour guidelines. Only first aid training providers accredited by NZQA can award the credits and issue a first aid certificate. Care needs to be taken to ensure that the provider is actually registered with NZQA for this purpose. NZQA conduct regular External Evaluative Reviews on all training providers. New Zealand Red Cross is proud to hold a double Highly Confident accreditation in both Educational Performance and Capability in Self-Assessment. This means that NZ Red Cross is a Category One training provider. First aid refresher training Refresher training is required every two years to maintain the certificates. This is a requirement and not something for the provider to decide. The requirement allows for a three-month period of grace, so the cut off period is two years and three months which should allow sufficient time to enrol onto a suitable course. The refresher training should ensure

the certificate holder is current in first aid practice appropriate to their individual workplace requirements. If a certificate is not renewed for more than three calendar months from the second anniversary date of issue, it will be necessary for the certificate holder to complete full first aid training to maintain currency. For the purposes of workplace first aid emergency management, employers will need to ensure that their first aid personnel maintain competency at all times.

GARDENING

Good as gold – it’s carrot time Rachel Vogan sets her sights on planting newseason carrots and shares her tips for success. I challenge you to name a vegetable that is more versatile than the carrot? What other vegetable can be juiced? Not to mention grated, sliced and diced into a variety of salads and slaws, or roasted, boiled, steamed, stir-fried and sautéed, jammed into a sandwich or tucked into your pocket? Bugs Bunny swore by them and so do I.

When and where to plant

Carrots require full sun for the best results. This could be morning sun or afternoon sun, with four to six hours per day being ideal. The trick to growing long, straight carrots is soil texture. The soil has to be loose and friable, like a fine crumb or dry scone dough; anything that has stones, lumps or clods in it is going to limit the carrots’ ability to bury themselves easily into the soil. The roots are soft and delicate as they develop.

Soil time

Before sowing seeds, add a generous amount of well-rotted compost to the soil. If the compost is a little lumpy, sift it to remove the lumps. Sheep pellets are brilliant, however, these need to be worked in and watered well prior to planting, to get them to break down. Ideally, prepare the carrot bed one weekend and sow the seeds the next. If you choose to go down the planter route, carrots are happy as long as the container is deep enough, i.e. at least 20-30cm. Fill the tub with a mixture of vegetable mix and seedraising mix.

The seed-raising mix is lovely and fine, and provides the perfect base for healthy carrots. Vegetable fertiliser should be blended in prior to planting, or if you forget, you can use liquid fertiliser and drench your crop once a week with Seasol, worm wee or something similar.

Sow time

Carrots can be sown at anytime, except in winter, when the soil is too cold. In the garden, mark out a shallow furrow, 2cm deep, and scatter seeds evenly along the row, aiming to have a  little space between each seed. This  isn’t  always as easy as it sounds, as  the  seeds are  so fine and can readily fall

out in clumps. If this happens, use a kitchen fork to spread them out – I always have one in the garden shed for when I get a bit heavy-handed. Lightly cover the seeds with soil and sprinkle with water. Keep soil moist while seeds are germinating, and seedlings will appear in two to three weeks.

Thinning time

Once seedlings  are  finger-length, and  the  first true ferny leaves are obvious, thin out  the  excess  seedlings to allow a one to two finger space (2-3cm), between each plant. This is a vital step and will

underpin the eventual success of your crop. It can feel rather  mean, but if you want ‘lovely long straight limbs’, you need to cull a few to reach your goal. If left to their own devices, the carrots  overcrowd  each  other, run out of food and water, and never flourish. •Turn to next page

gardening without guesswork Question:

I want to plant some spring Sweet Peas, what do I need to do to get the best results?

Sweet Peas create a beautiful burst of colour in the garden, and create a sweet scent. Growing them is pretty easy, and the rewards are well worth the effort. They prefer to be planted in full sunlight, in an area that has good drainage. If you plant them near a trellis, they’ll work their way up that too! Prepare the area that you have chosen to plant in with some good soil, compost and some blood and bone. Soak the seeds overnight in a glass of water. This helps to soften the seed and makes the germination process easier. Create a furrow – about 10cm deep - where you intend to sow your seeds. Use a pencil to create a hole, and drop the seed in. Once you’ve sown all the seeds, cover the holes and gently pat the mix down. Whilst they are best sown directly into the garden where you intend them to stay, if you are transplanting seedlings, be careful not to touch the roots too much as they don’t like having them disturbed. Water frequently, especially as the dry, warm weather approaches through the summer months. A good long soak every few days will help to get the plant’s roots looking deeper in the soil, which will help reduce drying out in the summer. These plants are pretty care-free and don’t require much pest control.

GARDENING Harvest time

2

1

Pull carrots when they are ready. If they don’t readily ease out of the soil, use a fork to gently lift them from below, rather than risk pulling off their tops/ heads and leaving the root in the ground. Watering the soil before planting also makes pulling easier. When to harvest is totally up to you; baby carrots are always so sweet and tempting. Total crop time is around three months from sowing to harvest, to ensure you never run out of carrots, sow a new batch every four to six weeks.

Variety time

The go-to, traditional, long-tapered carrot varieties include ‘Topweight’, with a brilliant flavour and a strong top, which make it easy to harvest, it’s a reliable campaigner that suits all regions; ‘Manchester table’, a mid-length variety with slightly rounded tips; and ‘Early Chantenay’, which has short stumpy roots and is favoured for its early maturity. Coloured carrots are popular, the flavour is generally the same and they add a brilliant visual element to cooking. ‘Purple Dragon’ is a widely available purple one and ‘Yellow Solar’ has mid-length, sunny-yellow, sweet roots.

3 1. Seedlings appear about two weeks after sowing. 2. These carrots are ready to harvest and should have been thinned a bit more. To ease them out of the soil, use a fork to lift them gently from underneath.

Children and carrots

3. Sow rows of carrots alongside spring onions, which also like a loose soil, as they are ready to harvest about the same time. 4. If you have no garden room, grow carrots in containers or buckets. Fill with a friable blend of seed-raising mix and vegetable mix, and sow as per normal.

Carrots are a great crop for kids, and even simple ideas like growing them in a kitchen bucket can get them started. You can get kids to decorate the bucket, poke some holes in it for drainage, fill it with vegetable mix then sow some seeds, or plant a few of the marble-shaped ‘Roly Poly’ carrot seedlings, which are in the shops, and watch them grow. Event manager and mother of two, Gwen Macready has always found carrots a challenge with her kids, until she started grating them on top of pizza, now the family’s go-to pizza toppings include grated carrot every time.

L

incoln University has appointed a new director of farms, who will be taking the helm of the university’s agricultural, horticultural and conservation portfolio of land. The veterinarian and Lincoln alumna Dr Tersa Moore will begin her new role at Lincoln’s Te Waihora campus on October 12, and has an extensive background in farm management through running her own dairy farm and seven years of sharemilking, achieving farm production records wherever she worked. “This is a new leadership role for the university and I am thrilled that Dr Moore is taking on the unique opportunity and responsibility to manage and influence a large portfolio of land to improve efficiencies and effective use of the land,” Lincoln University Deputy Vice-Chancellor – Scholarship and Research, Dr Stefanie Rixecker says. Dr Moore, who has Ngāti Rangitihi and Cook Island ancestry, has also consulted for DairyNZ, initiating and developing a project to create a network of Maori farms in Taupo, and managed a national programme to help farmers work on agribusiness strategies. Dr Moore says she is excited about her appointment. “The research farms are pivotal in providing scientific outcomes that benefit New Zealand agriculture, and this is something that I would take great pride in being a part of.  “Having worked for DairyNZ and worked up the farming ladder to farm ownership, I am acutely aware of the importance of agricultural and horticultural research and development, and more importantly, the extension of outcomes to the farming public, the rural professionals that support these industries and the future farmers/ professionals who will come through Lincoln University,” she says. Dr Moore will manage Lincoln University-owned, controlled or influenced land outside of the campuses, which includes farms, orchards, forests and conservation land.  The university owns and manages a variety of farm properties for four key

reasons: education and training, providing first-hand farm experience for students; research and development; demonstration, for commercial farmers to take key learnings to apply to their own properties; and scholarship support, for commercial profit to be applied to the support of future students. Dr Moore’s role also involves supporting the education, research and outreach objectives of Lincoln University, and maintaining strong relationships with joint venture partners on specific farms such as those at Northland College and St Peter’s School in Cambridge. She began her Bachelor of Agricultural Science degree at Lincoln University in 1997 before completing her Bachelor of Veterinary Science at Massey University in 2003, and was resident veterinarian and office manager at Mapperley Stud Ltd, Matamata, before accepting the new role. She has chaired the New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards Trust (NZDIA), and in 2009 was NZDIA National Sharemilker of the Year and an agricultural ambassador for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade to Europe.

Rural communities to receive

P

professional support

rimary Industries Minister Nathan Guy has announced a further 400 rural professionals will be trained in 20 workshops delivered over the next few weeks to support farming families and rural communities. “These workshops are about creating a culture of mental health awareness and training within service organisations, a key outcome from ‘Transforming the Dairy Value Chain’, a Primary Growth Partnership (PGP) programme between the Ministry for Primary Industries, DairyNZ and Fonterra,” Mr Guy said. “This adds to the more than 400 rural professionals already trained in mental health awareness by the programme. “While the economic benefits of PGP are well-known as the Government’s flagship research and development programme for the primary sector, it’s great to see it is also supporting the wellbeing of dairy farmers in what is a difficult year for some. “Rural professionals are dealing with multiple farmers everyday. By reaching them, we are extending the reach of the mental health initiatives to a wider group of people in the rural community.” A range of other organisations have been involved with developing and delivering the wellness initiatives as part of Transforming the Dairy Value Chain, including the New Zealand Institute for Rural Health, the Dairy Women’s Network, Federated Farmers, universities and AgResearch. In addition to working with rural professionals, the programme has also delivered Health PitStops to more than 3500 farmers across the country. “The Health PitStops raise awareness of wellbeing among farmers, and highlight concern about the high levels of stress, fatigue, burnout and cardiovascular risk in the farming workforce. “Another key initiative is the Farmer Wellbeing Stakeholder Group, facilitated by Federated Farmers.  This group has lifted the profile of mental health and made it easier to talk about mental health issues and share knowledge, experience and stories.” Transforming the Dairy Value Chain has invested around $2.1 million in farmer wellbeing initiatives over the last five years, and the programme is investing a further $950,000 over the next two years.

CONSTRUCTING OUTDOOR

LIVING SPACES

H

aving a deck, pergola or paved area can extend the indoor living space and make a great place to spend hot, balmy summer nights, relaxing with a little evening breeze to cool us down. These structures are also one way to reduce lawn size and break up an otherwise extensive yard, adding areas of interest. Stone chip is the most affordable option for outdoor areas. It will require some ground preparation with a reasonably level surface. Cover with weed mat to reduce the potential for weed problems, then spread the stones. These can be a nuisance and play havoc with the lawnmower when they spill out onto the lawn, so more containment may be achieved with blocks or bricks set into the stones creating paths or sectionalising shrubbed garden areas with seated areas included.

A more permanent effect might be to use pavers. There is a great range available in various sizes and price brackets from greys to other colours or a slate look. When you tire of them, lift them up and start anew. Use string to mark the area to be paved and check for underground wiring or drainage before preparing the ground. The pavers will need to be higher than the surrounding area with a 10 to 15-millimetre run-off to avoid water pooling. Run string from stakes to mark low and high points, which should be 150 millimetres lower than the internal floor height to meet building regulations. Heavily used areas need a thicker base with more soil dug out before evenly spreading a hard base of crushed stone, followed by a two to five-centimetre layer of sand. This assists drainage and avoids the chance of pavers sagging over time.

inserted or a concrete channel constructed on the outer edge to retain the shape of the paved area. When placing pavers down, avoid walking on the sand. Use a string line to guide placement, a stone cutter for cutting pavers to size and a plate compactor to compress the paved area before sweeping sand over the joints. Concrete and asphalt also provide durable surfaces though can be austere and glary in seating areas, unless coloured or textured like exposed aggregate. Decking on the other hand is more aesthetic. The main timber choices are treated pine, which is cheaper and long-lasting, hardwood or bamboo, which is considered strong. The choice of wood will depend on preference as each has a slightly different look and finish. If the deck is to be 1.5 metres or higher, a permit will be required. Start by concreting in timber piles for the bearers to run on for supporting the joists. The decking timber is fixed to the joists, which run at 90 degrees to the bearers. Fixings should be galvanised or stainless steel – either nails which are faster to complete or screws which can be more secure over time. After the work is done, sit back and enjoy your hard work.

f you have an old shower with a curtain, it is probably time to replace it with a modern unit or if space allows, a walk-in shower. The bath might also be done away with in favour of a spacious shower area, separated from the room with just a sheet of embossed glass. Latest bathroom trends have a touch of elegance with luxury fittings and accessories that pamper. When renovating, budget for quality versatile fittings, like a multishower head that offers a massage function, varying degrees of spray pressure and a steam option for that sensual, indulgent shower. Choose one that can also be handheld for spraying water where desired. Overseas trends are showing seats included in spacious walk-in showers, as well as mats over the tiled bathroom floor with a television

and comfy chair, turning the room into another area in which to relax. A statement of opulence can be made with a gold-look trim around the baths and basin, or a large gilt framed mirror on the wall. It might also be reflected in added features like mirrors with a demister function. Free-standing baths and soaking tubs that sit flush to the floor are also extremely popular, which may be easier to install, than a fitted bath for which a frame will need to be built to support the bath. Taste and the size of the bathroom will influence what will work best. Hanging vanities are very fashionable at present. They give a look and feel of spaciousness though do weigh up any need for storage. In many older homes, the bathroom is not always a large area while large stately homes often have spacious little rooms which

will have the capacity for features such as twin basins. For extra storage, free standing or builtin open shelving can be incorporated into the new bathroom design. Walls can be painted in a range of colours or lined with large quartz or black tiles, while small mosaic tiles may add a splash of colour and break a grey-based monochromatic colour scheme. Feature floor tiles can also liven up the room as can a window overlooking a garden, with natural wood and metallic features also acceptable to add a little rustic feel to the clean, modern lines. Giving your bathroom a luxurious facelift will add value to your home and to you personally.

TIME TO FRESHEN UP

Paved areas extend outdoor living spaces.

THOSE OUTDOOR AREAS

W Spring flowers brighten outdoor areas.

hat a wonderful time of year. As the cold days dissipate and warmer weather takes its place, we start to feel like cleaning up the yard. This burst of energy may encourage us to change our outdoor living space with no limit to the ideas that could become reality, leading to magical relaxing areas sheltered from the sun and wind. Sprucing the outdoors might be as simple as purchasing a new barbecue and outdoor furniture, or planting some pots of spring flowers. More serious changes might involve constructing a deck or laying pavers, while a sunshade might be fitted with fences or

frames, added for sun and wind protection. These may be manufactured products or structures created from wood, trellis or other materials, such as an old window. Lots can be done to make an interesting and comfortable outdoor living room right outside interior family spaces or tucked away in a secluded part of the garden. Along with dining table and chairs, include comfy lounge seats and if these come with fabric cushions, then add a place to store them out of the weather and away from insects and birds. Finish off with a coffee table, making a perfect place to relax with a cool drink, entertain or curl up with a book. The outdoor lounge could be stepped down or raised higher and placed nearer the garden, a water feature, pool or shelter. A two-seater or swing seat could also be hidden away in a secluded part of the garden, sheltered from certain wind directions or for shade at a certain time of the day. An outdoor gas fire will provide warmth. It might stand alone or be incorporated into a stone or brick wall. Surround the outdoor rooms with raised garden beds which might also have seats on top or substantial pots planted with shrubs using solar or mood lighting to break up areas. Activities might be incorporated into the landscape design where light and dark pavers are alternated to create a checker board or hopscotch pattern. For a Middle Eastern theme, incorporate a striped canvas backdrop and sides or hang

curtains around the seating area. These can be drawn at night to keep out insects and soften the effect of the breeze. Tuck inside cane chairs with brightly coloured cushions and rugs, which add vibrancy and contrast well with the greens of the garden. Alternatively, focus on neutrality with whites, beiges and greys for a peaceful setting. The décor of your outside spaces does not have to cost a fortune, or it can be a more serious investment. Let your imagination run wild and carry out a little research to get ideas then draw up a plan of how you want to spruce up your outdoors for enjoyment in the warm months ahead.

hile a basic landscape design may suffice, investing in a professionally designed landscape plan can pay dividends in the long-run. “Getting in early with the landscape plan can assist budgeting and streamline the implementation process,” says landscape designer Sharon Crofts. “For example, utilising contractors already on site to construct landscape features, such as walling or decks, can be a saving in both time and money for the client.” “Many people like to add their own flair and achieve a unique design that fits with who they are and their lifestyle needs,” advises Sharon. “I often see the potential to create a different perspective for a design matching the homeowners’ interests and functional needs without necessarily incurring extra costs.” Sharon starts with an on-site consultation with clients to discuss their thoughts and ideas before drawing concept designs. Living and working locally, she is handy to meet clients at a time convenient to them. Over the years, Sharon has produced countless landscape designs from small city courtyards to extensive rural landscapes. Her wide-ranging industry experience has resulted in her gaining considerable knowledge and skills in all facets of the industry. She studied horticulture and landscape technology at Lincoln University, worked in nurseries where she gained a sound

understanding of plants and spent 20 years working for a large and leading landscape company in Christchurch before branching out on her own. Sharon Crofts Landscape Design can provide landscape plans for both new and existing houses. Sharon can assist with planting plans, organising landscape contractors, planting proposals, construction details, plant pictorials, elevations, plant sourcing and project management. She works with a number of contractors, enabling the client to source competitive quotes and choose the contractor of their preference. This allows greater flexibility, especially if the client is keen to undertake some of the landscape work themselves. “I like devising home landscapes and working one-on-one with clients,” says Sharon. “I listen to my clients and encourage them to list features and plants they like or do not like, and to show me photos that appeal to them. This helps me understand what they’re looking for so I can interpret their wishes and help them realise their dreams.” For more information on Sharon Crofts Landscape Designs, you can call Sharon on 329 6229 or 027 431 1558.

PLAN YOUR

SUMMER GARDEN Mulch around the base of trees and shrubs to suppress weeds and conserve moisture.

S Flowering cherries are well-known for their beautiful blossoms.

Deciduous magnolias are a palette of white, pink and red flowers.

pring is the classic time to get the garden ready for summer and it is worth giving some thought to planning so your work in the garden is minimised, especially over the holiday period. One of the first tasks to complete as soon as possible is the final pruning of deciduous trees and shrubs. Remember to disinfect your secateurs after pruning one tree before moving onto the next – this will prevent the spread of diseases such as blast in stone fruit. The tops of other plants that were frosted over the past cold winter should also be trimmed back and neatened. Trees can still be planted during spring and summer, but ensure they receive adequate water over those hot, dry north westerly days. Trees will generally need less regular watering if the water is allowed to soak deep into the soil. This encourages deep rooting which anchors trees. It also

5 39

allows them access to the moisture deep in the soil, making them more resilient in long-term and in dry periods. Take advantage of the fewer weeds in the garden after winter and start weed control early. Mulching is an excellent way to achieve this. Examples of garden mulches include pea straw, bark or wood chips, as well as compost and well-rotted manure. Spread the mulch over the soil surface under plants, in a thick layer of at least 10 centimetres, making sure there are no gaps for weeds to poke through. Mulching will not eliminate weeds completely but will certainly make it easier to keep them under control. Spring in the garden is a wonderful time with a myriad of blossoms appearing on many deciduous trees. Flowering cherries and magnolias are starting to bloom, and complement the vivid colours of rhododendrons and camellias. Use fastgrowing, hardy native trees and shrubs to provide privacy and a backdrop for the colourful specimen trees. Kiwiflora Nurseries in Waterholes Road, between Rolleston and Templeton, has a wide range of trees to set up your garden. These include large grade specimen and screening trees that will give an ‘instant’ effect when planted, as well as smaller grade plants for those who are happy to wait for their plants to grow. Feel free to pop into the nursery to discuss your planting needs, so you can create your ideal garden within your budget. The nursery is open from 8am to 4pm weekdays and 9am to 12noon on Saturday mornings. Their website is www.kiwiflora.co.nz.

MOTORING

People-mover Odyssey in luxury class HAVE YOU ever wondered what it would be like to drive a limousine every day but always considered it being too expensive or too impractical? Well, Honda has the answer, the new Odyssey L is the luxury people mover which rivals any limousine I’ve been in and, what’s more, it lists at just $52,500. Of course, the Odyssey series starts at $45,900 for the S which makes it the ideal transport for those with a large family, its eightseat configuration is tempting. However, the L version sacrifices one seat in favour of a luxury seating arrangement. The central row fits two, what Honda label “captain seats,’’ they are like your lounge La-Z-Boy with ottoman and armrests, they also have a lengthy distance of adjustment, even laterally. Of course, leather trim is utilised throughout, and the Odyssey L gets a vast amount of fitment for comfort and convenience, and safety. Some of the major features include electric sunroof, electric sliding side doors, four-zone climate control, paddle shift, a multitude of seating configurations and plush décor. Interestingly, satellite navigation isn’t fitted and that is a bit of a surprise. However, for $52k the Odyssey L represents good value buying for those who want a step up from the S version. Both versions of the Odyssey have been newly engineered, it is

fresh from the platform up, and it has been designed so that it is more dynamic yet without losing the people mover concept. And it shows, it feels tighter and less cumbersome than before, it is more car-like to drive and equips itself well when presented with a handling challenge. The test car was riding on optional 18in, Mugen-designed wheels. Fitted with 235/45 sport specification Michelin Pilot rubber, there is plenty of grip on offer, strong feedback at the steering wheel and quiet motion on the highway. The fully independent suspension is a mix of struts up front and a double wishbone rear. The spring and damper rates are set softish which offers that plush ride, but with Honda’s determination to engineer a low centre of gravity into the Odyssey it handles with dignity and isn’t affected by a dramatic weight shift as gravitational forces come into play. Those on board are treated to a quality ride and won’t be lurched around when corners arrive. Under the bonnet sits a 2.4litre, double-camshaft, 16-valve engine. It is a unit which finds its way through a lot of Honda prod-

Price: Honda Odyssey L, $52,500. Dimensions: Length,4840mm; width, 1800mm; height, 1695mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, front-wheel-drive, 2354cc, 129kW, 225Nm, continuously variable transmission. Performance: 0-100km/h, 9.8sec.

HONDA ODYSSEY L: Limousine-like features. uct – CRV and Accord Euro to be specific. Honda rates it at 129kW (6200rpm) with 225Nm of torque at 4000rpm. Interestingly, these figures are down 11kW to other applications and I suspect that that has something to do with the inclusion of a seven-step continuously variable transmission as opposed to the traditional five-speeders of its stablemates. It’s taken me a long time to accept CVT, but in the Odyssey the combination works well with its seamless ratio flow and ability to let the engine work unimpeded. That, of course, has a beneficial effect on fuel economy. The Odyssey L is rated with a 7.8-litre per 100km (36mpg) combined cycle rating, which fitted well with the trip computer readout during the time I had the test car. It con-

stantly sat at around 9.4l/100km (30mpg) with an instantaneous figure of 6-8l/100km available at 100km/h (engine speed 1900rpm). Honda strives to make fuel usage savings a high manufacturing priority, so features in the Odyssey such as idle stop-start and economy mode are there to enhance economy. The Odyssey is no sports car, but the engine is lively, and if you consider the points in the rev band where peak power and maximum torque are developed, the engine is happy to usher in speed willingly, a standstill to 100km/h time of 9sec can be expected, along with an overtaking time of 5sec. I had a Trade Me item to pick up in Ashburton, so a large part of my testing time in the Odyssey was on the flat, straight roads of

State Highway 1, but that served to prove how dignified it is, it is quiet and composed, dispensing the kilometres easily and promoting an easy driving experience. The seats are cocooning, and with electric adjustment up front, minute changes can be made to get the driving position exact. And that can be said of all the seats, the Odyssey L is a true luxury car. A low ride height also makes entry and exit easy, and I would imagine, too, easy for those not quite so agile. I’ve often said that new people movers don’t fit into the realm of those who need them the most. However, the Odyssey as a series is priced well and it wouldn’t be too onerous for a family to find their way into the S version. And if you take into account the multitude that ply our roads from the pre-owned market, there’s no sign that the people mover market is slowing. The Odyssey has a key role to play, whether it be standard or luxury.

to business women, mothers to grandmothers and friends simply enjoying each other’s company”.

One of the appeals the Expo has to visitors is the variety of companies involved with everything from diamond jewellery and wineries to renovation products and kids Superhero Parties, so that there really is something for everyone and all ages.

If you have never been to a Women’s Expo, you are in for a treat, but you do need a few hours up your sleeve! From sampling gourmet food, to trying on jewellery, learning about new businesses, watching fashion parades, checking out the latest in Outdoor Adventure Sports Gear and purchasing cosmetics and skin care, there is so much to see and do, and you will want to do it all!

Renee Murray from NZME Events, organiser of the Expo says “Our aim is to have as wide of a range of companies involved with the Expo as possible. Women are all different and their individual interests are so diverse. One woman may love the latest in makeup but the woman beside her may be more interested in unique travel options. It’s great on the weekend to see all the various women visit the show, from teenagers

Don’t miss this chance to see around 200 companies under one roof for one weekend!

The Expo is a perfect place to meet for a girl’s day out but it’s also a great place to escape and have some well-deserved “me time” if you prefer to browse the sites by yourself at your own pace.

Purchase Energy Star qualified appliances.

Efficiency in kitchen design Rebecca Lees looks at simple ways to maximise energy efficiency in the kitchen.

W

hen building new, careful kitchen design can drastically reduce energy use as this area is one of the highest energysapping rooms in the home. Passive heating and cooling Consider using natural sunlight and airflow when choosing the position of your new kitchen. East-facing rooms are best suited for kitchen areas, as they’ll have good solar gain in the morning when the heat is appreciated, and are cooler in the late afternoon, making the hot activity of dinner preparation more comfortable. North or west-facing kitchens have good solar gain throughout the year, so cooling

options are often a consideration. Horizontal outdoor shading (along eaves or decking) assists in keeping rooms cool and, for homes with high thermal mass, such as concrete, tiles or brick, louvred or clerestory windows save on energy used for cooling as well as providing excellent ventilation. Windows and doors should be located in the direction of the prevailing summer wind to give natural airflow and to minimise your need for fans and air conditioning. Choosing a lightcoloured roof can also assist, reflecting light and keeping your home cool. South-facing kitchens are naturally cooler and darker. Installing triple-glazed skylights will provide extra light and warmth. LowVOC (volatile organic compounds) white

paint minimises indoor air pollution and reflects natural light, giving you a more vibrant south-facing room and reducing the need for electric lighting. Tap into free energy Free energy is energy not used at all. Energy star-qualified whiteware, kitchen appliances and heating will save on energy use. The more stars, the more energy efficient the appliance, and it’s well worth it. A dishwasher with low efficiency can cost around $1.32 per load, but an efficient dishwasher may only cost 0.29c, meaning you save a dollar at every use. Visit w w w.energ y w is e.govt.nz/energ y-st ar to compare products and their annual energy use. Combi ovens offer convection, steam and combination cooking while reducing energy costs by around 50 per cent. They may also provide other features such as triple-glazed viewing windows (saving up to 40 per cent energy) and automatic fan switch-offs when the door is opened. When establishing the kitchen layout, be sure to place fridges and freezers away from cookers and hot appliances. Reduce water consumption Careful design can reduce the amount of water used in a home and save on energy costs. Choose appliances that are water efficient,

Clerestorey windows installed in high thermal mass homes give excellent ventilation and light.

such as those labelled under the New Zealand Water Efficiency Labelling Scheme (WELS). These products also come with an efficiency star rating, with more stars equating to better water efficiency. When choosing taps, try one that is aerated and see if it suits you. This tapware will reduce the flow while still providing plenty of water. Waste disposal units are both water and energy thirsty. An alternative is to replace them with a covered storage area, which comprises three seperate bins: food waste (for garden compost), recycling and general waste. Choose wisely When choosing materials and appliances, consider their whole life cycle. How much energy has gone into producing the material, how long will it last and what will be done with it when it is no longer being used by you? Choose your professionals wisely, too. Savvy designers will be up to speed with the latest energy-saving options and will be willing to help guide you through the process with your end goal and budget firmly in mind.

uilding companies build show homes to demonstrate their workmanship, display innovative design ideas and present a snapshot into a new and luxurious lifestyle featuring all the latest in materials, fittings and fixtures. A show home can inspire you in a way nothing else can. You can absorb the ambiance they present, admire the innovative techniques, new materials and technology all in one place, under a roof that you may just select for your new home. At a show home you can ask questions, take notes and compare them to other builders’ presentations. You don’t have to visualise or imagine full scale from a photo in a glossy, you can simply see at a glance, often instinctively, features you like, things you would avoid and clever innovation that you never would have thought of. Best of all you will see the building companies’ attention to detail, from design, construction and finish through to interior decor, outdoor living and landscaping. Show homes are the perfect way to get a good idea of pricing, discover what is good quality and value,

learn about superior use of space, future-proofing, ongoing maintenance and long term returns. So what are you waiting for? Check out our maps, grab a notepad and pencil and begin the exciting project of building your own home.

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

EXTERIOR CLADDINGS –

WHAT TO CHOOSE? P

ersonal preference and practicality are key factors when choosing an exterior cladding. Broadly speaking, cladding types are masonry veneer, weatherboard, composite weatherboard systems, plywood panelling, aerated concrete or polystyrene cladding. Masonry veneer is more commonly thought of as brick, block or stone veneer, which is fixed over a timber frame. It is available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colours, and the mortar can be coloured for effect. Brick veneer is generally maintenance free. As it works on a cavity system, it is unlikely to have leaky building issues. This time, proven product was called into question by some people who believed that it had not stood up well in the earthquakes however, if fixed properly with the correct ties, the bricks are likely to stay in place. Traditional timber weatherboard is another time-proven product. It does require more maintenance with the need to be painted every 10 to 15 years. This will depend on the location and degree of sunlight with dark colours, not the best due to the timber protracting and

contracting depending on the temperature. Timber also faired reasonably well in the earthquakes due to their ability to flex with movement though this was also due to their timber framing. As look-alike weatherboard products are inert, they are classed as a permanent building material. Unlike traditional weatherboards, this lightweight product is durable. It can also be painted in dark colours as the paint will stay on longer. There is also a range of widths and lengths available and the product can be used to add contrast and break a line. Lesser known wood imitators are vinyl claddings, fibre cement exterior wall claddings and plywood panels which can be given a board and batten effect. We are seeing more residential construction using aerated concrete. This is a lightweight precast concrete panel fixed onto a cavity system, but not directly to the frames with a gap of around 40 millimetres allowed for air movement. This removes the potential for an egress of water where moisture could be trapped between the frame and cladding, leading to damp frames that could rot. A disadvantage of aerated concrete is the

need for it to be plastered once installed. While the plaster is coloured with a wide variety of colours available, changing the colour of the home down the line will mean painting the cladding. Very popular are plaster finishes which give a clean seamless look and have wide potential for colour choice. Plaster can be

applied to polystyrene cladding and brick or block veneer. While polystyrene cladding has received some bad press due to leaky buildings, this cladding system is a good option where a lightweight structure is required such as on TC3 land. If it is installed as per the manufacturer’s specifications, then there are unlikely to be any problems.

Spring fling:

Entertaining outdoors Spring is arguably the best time of the year. Windows are flung open and lawn mowers are roaring as winter quietly leaves. Everyone is smiling because they’re about to enjoy a truly Kiwi tradition.

F

Words by Liam Cavanagh

rom barbecues to long lunches and brunches, Kiwis love having friends and family over to celebrate and entertain. What better way to welcome in the renewal and purpose spring brings but with a gorgeous patio that

showcases your personality and flair. The patio is not just asthetic, it’s practicality and function. It can become the scene of many memorable gatherings as the nights grow warmer and longer. No longer just an outdoor space, the patio is the centre

stage for your al fresco dining, especially as summer peeks around the corner. Let friends and family sit back and relax with a wine or two while the kids run free – a long-awaited sight after being kept indoors during the colder months. Let guests bask underneath vine-wrapped pergolas, around a magnificant stone fire pit, or in a secret garden-styled enclosure. You could focus on landscaping, choosing

plants and trees, or as simple as playing around with pots while taking advantage of interesting colours and foliage. Perhaps you want the pergola or decking to reflect your weatherboard home, or bring some of that Oamaru stone out and create a beautiful flagstone area with outdoor furtniture to enhance. Whatever your style, the potential for creating the perfect patio is limitless. FREE
