Rolleston jobs double post-earthquakes BY TOM DOUDNEY Job growth is steaming ahead in Rolleston with almost twice the number of new positions created each year than was the case before the earthquakes. Data from Statistics New Zealand shows that Rolleston is adding about 240 new jobs per year, compared to 135 before the earthquakes, with about 2500 people working in the town. However, the number of new jobs still lags well behind runaway population growth, with the num-

ber of people living in Rolleston growing by about 1000 a year. Rolleston Square director Lloyd Bathurst said there were currently 22 stores in the development with another, Harvey World Travel, to open on Wednesday and two more which were soon to be announced. As well as the jobs associated with these, other businesses could take on more staff as they grew. “I notice that with some of the smaller tenants, they will go from one person full-time to one and a half or two people, so it’s just

gradual but steady growth,” he said. Mayor Kelvin Coe said it was positive for the district that so many new jobs were being created. “Izone is growing very quickly as well and we have yet to see the full benefits of that because a lot of the properties which have been sold there have not yet been built on.” Mr Coe said that it was “a fact of life” that many people would continue to live in Rolleston and other Selwyn towns and work in Christchurch and it was hard to stimulate enough jobs to match the

population growth. “We would expect that over time, more and more job growth will take place, not just in Rolleston but in other areas,” he said. “And we would expect that more and more of them will be filled by people who are living in Selwyn.” The job growth data was released as part of Environment Canterbury’s Land Use Recovery Plan decision review document, which also showed that occupation trends in the greater Christchurch area had changed. • Turn to page 2

Police completed an extensive search at the weekend for missing man Raymond Neil Finnie, 74. Said Canterbury Police SAR co-ordinator, Sergeant Phil Simmonds: “We have now completed an extensive land and aerial search of bush, scrub and tussock covering a 3-4km radius from where his vehicle was located in the Whitecliffs area last Wednesday. The challenging terrain extends from heights of 300m up to 900m and

unfortunately he has not been located in spite of in excess of 1100 man hours spent searching the area for him over the last four days. “We are currently reviewing the search area, data from searchers and information provided by the public as a result of our Facebook and media appeals. Fliers have been put in mailboxes in surrounding properties but due to the

school holidays, not all homeowners have been spoken to. We urge anyone living, or who owns land in the Whitecliffs area to check their outbuildings and properties for any sign that he may have travelled through the area. “Mr Finnie was last seen driving his silver 2013 Suzuki Swift and wearing dark-coloured track pants and a dark woollen

jersey on September 25.” However, it is not known whether he had any additional items or changes of clothes with him. Mr Finnie has recently suffered a stroke and may have appeared disorientated. Police and his family have serious concerns for his safety said Sergeant Simmonds. If you know where Mr Finnie is or have seen him in the last week phone Christchurch Central Police Station on 363 7400.

Rolleston jobs double post-earthquakes • From page 1 The construction workforce has doubled from 13,000 to 26,000 since the September 2010 earthquake. Leighs Construction, a major player in the rebuild, has had a 240 per cent increase in staff during that time, from 41 permanent employees to 140. Managing director Anthony Leighs said this included a number of employees who came from overseas including a 91-strong workforce from the Philippines. There has also been a 20

per cent increase in professional, scientific and technical services since the earthquakes related to the architects, lawyers and other professionals needed. Accommodation and food services, which were already in decline as a result of the global financial crisis, declined a further 13 per cent following the earthquakes. These services are now starting to recover, said the report. Manufacturing “decline” since 2005 is slowing, possibly because of the rebuild.

ON THE LOOSE: Motorists found themselves travelling alongside a large water tank as it bounced along the side of State Highway 73 between Darfield and Kirwee on Sunday. Jake Taylor and Quentin Johansen filmed the bizarre sight and it became a hit on social media after it was reposted by the New Zealand Farmers Facebook page. The tank was believed to be moving at about 60km/h in the strong winds at the time. The pair followed it for more than 5km and witnessed it crossing the road on more than one occasion.

William finds a smart way to put out house fire BY TOM DOUDNEY Beer, milk and water wouldn’t make much of a beverage but for William Smart it turned out to be the perfect recipe for putting out a house fire. Faced with a fire which threatened to rip through his girlfriend Anna Haywood’s Hororata home, Mr Smart used anything he could find to douse the flames and in doing so, may have averted disaster. Ms Haywood’s day had started badly and threatened to get worse before her boyfriend’s actions. She had crashed and written off her truck earlier in the morning. Although she was uninjured, she was upset and Mr Smart drove over from his farm on the West Coast to see her. Ms Haywood used some hair straighteners in her bedroom before going outside to meet Mr Smart. The two checked out the crash site before returning to her home to find smoke coming out the door. She praised the bravery of Mr Smart, who jumped the fence and ran straight inside while she dialled 111. “He just got my crock pot and put it in the sink and just started pouring milk and beer and water in it and threw it on the fire,” Ms Haywood said. “He even grabbed a bowl of pasta at one stage and was thinking about

putting that on it because he was in such a rush.” When Mr Smart emerged, he was blackened but unharmed – and disappointed at having had to waste the beer. Hororata Chief Fire Officer Roger Parsons said if it hadn’t been for Mr Smart’s actions, the house could have been lost. Ms Haywood said the fire had burnt the carpet in the bedroom, part of a wall and some of her belongings, as well as causing smoke damage to other parts of the house. However, she understood the damage to the house, which she was renting, would be covered by insurance. “I am upset about losing some of my stuff but it could have been so much worse and everyone was okay, so I’m not that bothered about it.” Firefighters had spoken to her to confirm the hair straighteners had not been left on. As the window may have been left open, she believed it was possible a piece of paper or some other flammable material had blown on to the hair straighteners while they were still hot, catching alight. Ms Haywood had only been living on the property for about QUICK THINKING: Anna Haywood and her boyfriend William six weeks since starting work on a Smart whose unusual method of tackling a fire may have saved her nearby farm. home.

One shop still to open in development The booming Hornby Working Men’s Club is about to finish developing its property portfolio with retail outlets. Club president Kevin Cole said the population movement from the east of Christchurch to the west, including to Rolleston, meant more retail was needed. At the end of the month the Coffee Club will open for business, completing the sixth outlet in its newest development. The club owns about 3.9ha of land from Carmen Rd to Denton Park. While The Warehouse has leased some land for about 20 years, the former bowling green was turned into retail space in 2012, some 4000 sq m. It is now home to Rebel Sport, Anytime Fitness, Bed Bath & Beyond, Toyworld and the Baby Factory. Mr Cole said the number of people using the bowling club had dwindled and it was a valuable site. “We originally wanted another large business to use the land but decided to go smaller,’’ he said. In Environment Canterbury’s Land Use Recovery Plan review decision document it was stated that Hornby had experienced growth in the retail sector at “the expense of industrial employment.”

SELWYN TIMES

Farmers wary of water quality study BY TOM DOUDNEY Plans for managing water quality still have some way to go before gaining farmers’ trust, survey results show. An Environment Canterbury survey on farmers’ attitudes to new rules being introduced through the Canterbury Water Management Strategy found that only 29.3 per cent of those in Selwyn trusted that a fair balance in water use for recreation, urban supply and farming needs would be achieved. By comparison, 27.3 per cent saying they were distrustful that that this would be the case and 43.4 per cent were neutral. However, this was still a more favourable view than the overall survey results, which showed that 23 per cent of farmers across Canterbury trusted that a fair balance would be achieved and 30.3 per cent were distrustful. Most Selwyn farmers (53.5 per cent) felt the plan would be “somewhat effective” at protecting water quality and keeping decisions about water use out of the courts, while 20.2 per cent felt it would be ineffective and 13.1 per cent thought it would be effective. To the question of whether farmers would be treated fairly, 35.4 per cent in Selwyn responded ‘yes’ while 29.3 per cent said ‘no’ and the rest were unsure. Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee member John Sunckell, who is also a dairy farmer, said he was not concerned about the figures which were “about where I would expect.”

ENVIRONMENT: Across all areas, dairy farmers had made more progress than sheep, beef and cropping farmers. Considering the diversity of people and views the plan had to deal with and that some of the rules were yet to be finalised, it was not surprising that there would be those who were yet to embrace it. “If we have only a third that are distrustful at this point, then I am actually quite happy.” He believed more farmers would view it positively as time went on. CWMS programme manager Christina Robb said the survey results were actually very encouraging. “It is understandable that some people not directly involved with this process are still cautious about what has been put in place via the

Selwyn Waihora section of the Land and Water Regional Plan (Plan Change 1),” she said. “We are continuing to build trust in the process through the zone committee, as well as helping farmers better understand what’s being asked of them.” The survey also found that only 11.7 per cent of Selwyn farmers had a farm environment plan in place, with more than half (56.2 per cent) not having started the process. This was near the bottom of the table for the four areas surveyed, with only Waimakariri (8 per cent) having a lower percentage of farmers which had started their plans.

Across all areas, dairy farmers had made more progress than sheep, beef and cropping farmers, with 29.7 per cent having a farm environment place and 39.1 per cent having started the process. Under Plan Change 1, many Selwyn farmers will need to have their environment plans submitted by January 2017. Mr Sunckell said there was still enough time for farmers who hadn’t started their plans to get them done and it was likely that some were waiting for the appeal process on Plan Change 1 to be over and done with before getting started.

Interest high in development The developer of a new $500 million industrial and warehousing facility in Rolleston says the project has been buoyed by the interest it is attracting. The I PORT, located on 122ha of industrial land in the Izone business park, is being developed by the Carter Group. I PORT director Tim Carter said Rolleston was now positioned as the key transport hub not only for Canterbury but the whole South Island. “The fact that we share a boundary with the Lyttelton Port of Christchurch’s MidlandPort and provide direct access to that facility is proving a key attraction for a range of potential clients, especially in the logistics and warehousing sectors.” The presence at Rolleston of both the LPC MidlandPort and the Port of Tauranga’s Metroport facilities alongside the I PORT and other Izone businesses was a huge boost for the efficiency of transport for companies involved in exporting, importing, logistics, industrial operations and agriculture, Mr Carter said. Metroport opened in July, while MidlandPort is expected to open before the end of the year. The Canterbury region remains one of the country’s top performers, posting 16 consecutive quarters of economic growth. Commodity exports such as dry and refrigerated dairy, frozen meats and vegetables are forecast to keep rising due to new irriga-

In Selwyn, 60,000ha of mostly dryland farms will be transformed by the Central Plains Water irrigation scheme, which has been touted as having the potential to increase agricultural output by

$264 million per year. By late this year MidlandPort will have a road shuttle service to the Lyttelton sea port and direct rail access will be in place in early 2016. LPC chief executive Peter Davie said MidlandPort would improve container freight efficiency, travel time, reduce road congestion and costs for its customers. “It will act as a hub for receiving, storing and consolidating containers and as a distribution point where containers are transferred between trucks and trains.” Mr Davie said that over the next 30 years, LPC’s Port Recovery Plan would see the company develop land and facilities to cater for long-term international trade growth. Mr Carter said the experience of large companies in places such as Auckland which had channelled their operations through an inland port proved the potential

for supply chain efficiencies. New Zealand appliance company Fisher and Paykel found that the move to the Ports of Auckland inland port at Wiri in South Auckland provided flexibility with the management of containers on its own site, as well as improving container utilisation for the business. Fisher and Paykel global logistics project co-ordinator Richard Driver said the company previously had a micro-port on site. “But changes to our facility meant we lost the use of that space,” Mr Driver said. “The move to the inland port allowed us to remain efficient in our container movements while taking advantage of the other benefits inland ports offer.” Mr Carter said the proximity of I PORT to LPC’s inland port would make the staging of containers easier and reduce handling delays.

Lifestyle block template approved

hORORAtA pARISh

Lifestyle blocks have not escaped attention in the drive to reduce the impact of farming on deteriorating water quality. Environment Canterbury has approved a lifestyle block management plan template for properties under 10ha. The template has been developed with the increasing number of such properties in mind. In Selwyn, there are estimated to be 2674 properties which can be classified as lifestyle blocks. ECan regional planning manager Brett Aldridge said while all land use had the potential for nutrient discharges, for any area below 10ha this was likely to be minimal, so it was unnecessary to control this via a rule framework. “Small lots less than 10ha should be minimising nutrient losses as good management practice and the new template is a way to help this.” ECan chief executive Bill Bayfield said it was important to measure the environmental footprint of lifestyle properties, but that this should not be onerous because they tended to be low-nutrient leachers. The template was “user-friendly” and met all the requirements of Schedule 7 of the Land and Water Regional Plan, he said.

make up a reasonable proportion of rural Canterbury, so collectively they do contribute,” Mr Bayfield said. “I hope the use of this template results in more understanding of the environmental risks associated with smaller landholdings and the benefits of recording and acting on farming information.” Farm consultant David Ashby said the template would help lifestyle block owners take responsibility for their actions. “You have an effect on the environment whether you have 4ha or 400ha,” he said. Mr Ashby said that if a landowner could understand a problem then good environmental outcomes were more likely to be achieved. “It could be as simple as making sure you don’t over irrigate, keeping rainfall records and looking for daily evapotranspiration figures,” Mr Ashby said. “If you look after the environment your lifestyle block will grow more grass/crops and also look better and be a pleasure to work and live in.” Under Schedule 7 of the Land & Water Regional Plan, landowners can use an approved, industry-prepared template and guidance material or they can use their own template, provided they follow Schedule 7.

GOOD AS NEW: Ellesmere Catholic Cemetery is one of six cemeteries where headstone repairs have been completed in the past year.

Headstone repairs almost complete

        

Repairs to most cemetery headstones damaged in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes are nearing completion in Selwyn. Repairs to 13 of the 19 cemeteries maintained by the district council have been completed, with work on the five remaining cemeteries needing repairs scheduled to be finished by June next year. One cemetery – Lake Coleridge – did not suffer any earthquake damage. Many headstones were damaged in the magnitude 7.1 September 2010 earthquake, which was centred near Charing Cross. Some further damage also occurred as a result of the February 2011 earthquake. The district council has been working through a staged programme of cemetery repairs to fix damaged headstones. Over the past year, repairs to Prebbleton, Bishops Corner, Killinchy, Kirwee (right), Ellesmere Public and Ellesmere Catholic cemeteries has been completed. Repair work to Brookside, Springston, Lincoln, Shands Rd, Weedons, Greendale and Dunsandel cemeteries was previously completed. The cemeteries where repair work is yet to be undertaken are South Malvern, Kimberley, Waddington, and Hororata. These repairs are planned to be complete by June next year. Work is currently under way on headstone repairs at Kowai Pass Cemetery. In total, around 1100 headstones needed repairs as a result of the earthquakes. Most local cemeteries were established in the 1870s or early 1880s and have graves dating back to that time.

Play your part in local water management We need your knowledge, passion, experience, and ability to work collaboratively to help deliver benefits from Canterbury’s water resource to your community. Seven of Canterbury’s ten water management zone committees are now calling for applications from new community members. The Canterbury Water Management Strategy (CWMS) is an innovative and bold way of managing our fresh water now and in the future.

District council earthquake recovery manager Douglas Marshall said the amount of damage which occurred in cemeteries within Selwyn was quite varied and sites which suffered the most damage were repaired first. “The cemeteries which suffered the most damage were those with many older graves with ornate monuments like Lincoln and the sites close to the September 2010 fault line like Greendale.” Headstone repair work is being completed by Decra Art. The repair technique being used involves mateen rods being installed which provide a secure foundation for headstones and monuments. “The rods are extremely strong and after the repairs have been finished the headstones and monuments are actually stronger than a newly built headstone is required to be, so they should be quite resilient in any future earthquake,” Mr Marshall said.

It will contribute to the economic resilience of rural communities ensure safe drinking water supplies, and clean rivers and streams, as well as enhancing recreational opportunities and protecting environmental and cultural values. The following committees are seeking new members: Banks Peninsula

Hurunui – Waiau Kaikoura

Ashburton

Selwyn – Waihora Christchurch – West Melton

Orari – Opihi – Pareora

The membership refreshment process enables two community members each year to be replaced or reappointed, ensuring new perspectives will be represented on the committees.

If you would like more information or an application form please visit www.ecan.govt.nz/canterburywater or phone Environment Canterbury Customer Services on 0800 324 636.

Applications are due prior to 15 October 2015.

Saturday 10th October, 10am – 2pm Travel Dream Creators Local entrepreneurs, Sue and Paul Robinson are fulfilling their goal to open a travel agency in Rolleston that provides a complete travel service. “We saw a need for a recognised travel business with agents who take time to find out a client’s needs and also suggest places they may not know about like an Avalon Cruise through Venice so they have a great travel experience,” explains Paul. Paul and Sue want to help create memories and fulfil travel dreams with Harvey World Travel becoming part of the journey.

Their expertise is enhanced by a network of Harvey World Travel agents around New Zealand where sharing of knowledge and experiences is part of the organisation’s ethos. This gives the team access to a massive amount of experience of destinations in all parts of the world. Both Sue and Paul have strong business backgrounds; Sue as a corporate financial controller and Paul in commercial and corporate liability insurance. They also operate property management company, Hotel Homes based in Kirwee. These experiences have equipped them well for operating businesses in the travel sector. As a member of the Kirwee Volunteer Fire Brigade, Paul plans to continue their tradition of sponsoring fire stations and as they have done in Marlborough the business will be donating money for equipment and training. Harvey World Travel, Rolleston opens on Wednesday, 7th October with an opening event on Saturday, 10th October.

“We work with clients, suggesting new and vibrant options as well as assisting with intended travel plans so the best possible travel experience is created for them. The package should be unique and right for each customer,” adds Sue, who is Branch Manager with Paul helping manage and market the business. Harvey World Travel, Rolleston is a bonded travel agent. This involves paying a bond to a scheme run by the Travel Agents’ Association of New Zealand that protects clients’ travel investment. Clients also have twenty four hour back up while on holiday with the Harvey World Travel assistance programme that provides help to sort out any travel issues and insurance. Paul describes Sue as a visionary who sees opportunities and together they have formed and operate successful businesses in the travel industry. This includes a Harvey World Travel franchise in Blenheim, where they have a committed and experienced team and they will be bringing that same level of expertise to Rolleston.

Glentunnel School gets boost from farmers Glentunnel School has been able to put extra money towards sports and maths equipment thanks to the support of its rural community. The $160 grant has come from the Growing Minds fund run by fertiliser company Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate Ltd. Farmers from throughout New Zealand nominate a school and Hatuma donates money from the fund to that school. In the last six years, more than $30,000 has been donated from the fund to schools around the country. Outgoing Glentunnel School principal Chris Bascand, who finished last term, said its 112 children relied on the support of the community. “Rural schools are an integral part of the community and we work on our relationships with farmers and local businesses. Every little bit helps,” he said. “As a small school we still have a lot of the same overheads as a bigger school but we generally have less money to operate. So the fact our local farmers are getting in behind us is the type of boost we need.” Mr Bascand has helped turn Glentunnel School around in his 10 years as principal, with the roll increasing from 32 to 112. “When I arrived I was the only teacher at the school and now we have eight teachers, so it’s grown considerably.”

GRATEFUL: Glentunnel School pupils, front from left, Alice Thorne, Millie Wilson, Abbi Wilson and Emy Wilson holding some of the new resources which were bought with the Hatuma Growing Minds funds. Behind them are principal Chris Bascand, Hatuma field representative Nigel Wilson and farmer Hamish Thorne. Farmer Hamish Thorne’s daughter Alice attends the school. He tried his best to support the school in every way he could and the fund was another way he could get behind it. “It’s vital that we support our local school. They are the centre of any rural community. Before Chris Bascand arrived, our school was in a sad state but he has done wonders for it and really got the community on board, which has been vital.” Mr Bascand said rural schools were challenged in many ways by isolation, more extremes in weather and often changing communities.

“The school relies on community volunteering and donations which are the school’s life support and the funds open up more opportunity.” Catering lunches and morning tea at the local sale yards was the main way the school raised money for extra resources. Hatuma field representative Nigel Wilson, who has three daughters at Glentunnel School, said the fund gave farmers an opportunity to support their rural school whether their children went there or not. “With traditional funding for rural schools lessening, we feel we have a role to play,” he said.

▌READERS’ ▌ LETTERS Does anyone at the district council take responsibility for the potential danger to life and limb of a variety of people, with the design of the road frontage of the above subdivision? Who in their right mind would allow or instruct that there should be houses fronting onto a main road into Lincoln with multiple house drive-ins crossing the combined pedestrian walkway and rail trail? Can that same person or committee imagine the carnage when in busy hours, morning and evening, the residents of these houses will be attempting to reverse from their drives into busy traffic with the width of road that exists? Imagine further, the poor unfortunate wanting to exit their drive to head north toward Prebbleton. Wouldn’t a better option have been to have one entrance to the subdivision and a parallel service road behind landscaping to access the remainder of the subdivision? The whole area there is an accident waiting to happen. – Les Wood, Lincoln District council chief executive David Ward responds. It is not unusual in New Zealand to have a shared pathway or cycle lane running parallel with a road and for the inhabitants of properties to need to check their properties for cyclists or pedestrians before

HAVE YOUR SAY Do you have an opinion on a current issue? Email your views to tom.doudney@ starmedia.kiwi exiting the property. In fact, everyone with a footpath or road outside their property (which is most property owners) will need to do this before leaving their property. Property owners who purchased lots facing the road along Birchs Rd had a choice of sections and could choose to purchase lots with alternative road access if they wished to. Equally, cyclists can choose to cycle on the road if they don’t wish to use the pathway. In the case of Flemington, the council also considered urban design objectives in requiring the properties to front the road rather than face inwards. The design of Flemington also includes shared pathways that connect to Birchs Rd. Having properties face the road helps improve safety by providing surveillance of what is happening along roads and footpaths and provides a more attractive street scene than a row of high fences would provide. The developer has also been required to include permeable fencing which allows the home occupants to see through fencing to improve the visibility of cars, pedestrians and motorists to improve safety.

Dave Ellis

OUR PEOPLE

Sandwiched between baking bread Ladbrooks resident Dave Ellis has been baking bread for 51 years. He spoke to reporter Tom Doudney about his long career, his extensive bottle collection and which Hollywood film you just might have seen him in How did you get started in the baking industry? I’m a bread plant baker – which means factory produced breads. I started my apprenticeship at Boon’s Bakery on June 16, 1964. It was the same week as A Hard Day’s Night (the movie starring The Beatles) was released in Christchurch – that’s how I remember. Has the industry changed much in that time? When I started, I was hand moulding breads and working with a peel oven but with progress in the industry we have moved to machinery-made bread – a bread plant. When that happened we went from making a few hundred loaves of bread an hour to making 6000 loaves an hour. The bakers diversified to get rid of their waste and so what started off as a waste product became the bread crumb industry for companies like Tegal. Now you are talking about huge amounts of bread – perhaps 15,000 or 20,000 loaves a week, going out

for food coatings. You must have made a lot of loaves in your time. For anybody in the Canterbury area who has munched into a loaf of bread or a crumbed product, such as fish or chicken, in the last 50 years, it has more than likely passed by me first. What made you decide to become a baker? It was mainly twilight work so that gave me a bit of time to myself during the day. I was racing Suzuki and Kawasaki motor-cycles as well so it gave me time to do that at Ruapuna. Did you have much success at racing? I was king of Ruapuna in 1971. How did you win that title? It was on points over a season and then one race at the end. Do you still race? No, I’m quite happy sitting at home in Ladbrooks. That’s as close as I get to a motor-cycle now. Ever had any spectacular crashes or injuries? I came off at 130mph (210km/h)

COLLECTOR: Dave Ellis still has the front window of the Boon’s Bakery bread shop which he salvaged in 1978. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN but walked away. The back wheel blew to bits down the main straight of Ruapuna. I felt pretty lucky. Have you ever had any other jobs other than baking? No, I haven’t. I thought about it but never actually ventured into anything else. One of my career highlights would have been a ride in a corporate jet to celebrate 25 years with one of the companies that I worked for. I also had a couple of trips overseas for companies and I

was pretty pleased about that sort of thing. You might not remember all the Morris Commercial J1 bread vans that used to be around but I rebuilt one, using parts from four vans, and painted it up in Boon’s Bakery colours. It was featured in the Peter Jackson film, Heavenly Creatures. You see all of me in the movie for about five seconds. What did you think of the movie? It was terrible. I tried to watch it but I just ended up fast forwarding

to see the bit of me in it. What scene has the van in it? It was a scene set on the corner of Worcester St and Fitzgerald Ave. Kate Winslet was in the scene as well. She walks across in front of me and I take off down the road in the van. What led you to rebuild that van? It was just for a hobby and a thing I did in my old Boon’s days. They used to have 13 of those little Morris Commercial J1 vans which delivered bread.

and collecting bourbon bottles

HIGH SPEED: Mr Ellis riding one of his motor-cycles at Ruapuna in the early 1970s.

PIECE OF HISTORY: The reconstructed Boon’s Bakery van.

They are pretty hard to find now but every man and his dog used to have them. I knew where one was sitting in a field in Prebbleton and so I put it together with some others and made one. We used it in a few promotions and in the film and then it lay in my back shed until about five years ago. I was in the Morris Commercial Club and one day some guy from England rang me up and said ‘do you want to sell it?’ I agreed so they brought a 12m container to my gate and away it went. It was 50 years ago since those

Jim Beam bottles? How big is your collection and how did that start? It’s pretty extensive. It started with just going to a liquor store to buy a Model A (Ford car) Jim Beam decanter and I thought I would drink that and keep it. Since then I have worked for a bottle show in America three times, just to source bottles and information, and carried on from there. Is your stamp collection pretty extensive too? Yes, it’s pretty complete for New Zealand and what I call British

vans started to be made and they had a 50-year celebration over there. As part of that I think it was judged No 5 or six out of all the vans in England. It is with a private owner over there now. Another thing I salvaged was the front window of the Boon’s Bakery bread shop when it was pulled down in 1978. I’ve got it in my hobby room out back. What do you like to do in your spare time these days? Basically stamps and gardening. You collect stamps? Yes and Jim Beam ceramic bottles.

Maxine

Pacific – Australia, Fiji, Pitcairn Islands. So you have collected most of the stamps that have ever been made in most of those places? Yes, plus spares. What would be the rarest one? I had one in my possession – a 1906 Christchurch Exhibition penny claret. It’s in the bank now. Will you keep going until you have collected every last stamp you can? I have sort of stopped in the last few years because the face value of the ones that are coming out is getting too expensive for what

they are and people aren’t really using stamps much these days. Did you do anything to celebrate 50 years in the baking trade or did anyone do anything special for you? Back in June I was having a cup of coffee with a guy at work (the Tip Top bakery) and he asked me how long I had been in the industry. I said it would be 51 years next week. The next week they got me to come in on the Wednesday (the anniversary, usually a day off). They said they were a bit short of staff. I came in and they said ‘make sure you go for a cup of tea at 10am’ and the next thing they closed the whole site down for about 40 minutes to recognise my 50 years in the industry. I was quite stunned. How old are you now? Sixty-seven. So you could have retired already. What has made you want to carry on? Mainly because I wanted to keep moving and I have an interest in the food coating industry. How much longer do you think you will work? At the moment I am recovering from a foot operation. I plan to go back and perhaps finish up about Christmas time.

Her career spans more than three decades of painting and exhibiting throughout New Zealand, with many works going overseas. The Earthsong collection of paintings is an invitation to pause and take in a moment in nature, to sense the pulse Rise and Fall and rhythms of the Earth, and listen to the sounds that reflect the natural world. To experience a sense of joy. Calm and meditative, the paintings are a combination of stillness and dynamic movement. The bird motif is used in each work as a messenger to draw attention to the landscape and the rich and diverse native flora of our land. Here is the opportunity to step away from the digital screens that are increasingly dominating our lives. With the pressure to rush through each day, in this fast-paced century, it is good to remind ourselves to reconnect with all our senses to the wonderful natural world that surrounds us. The dramatic increase of information technology, continuous upgrades and built-in obsolescence are rapidly using up precious resources, only to be discarded a short while later. There is only one Earth, a finite eco-system, that needs to be nurtured, not neglected, so that all forms of life can continue to exist.

Opening loss for Canterbury Country The Canterbury Country cricket team began its season with an eightwicket loss to Canterbury Black at Rangiora’s Mainpower Oval on Sunday. Batting first, Canterbury Country were all out for 158 in the 43rd over. The total proved too easy for Canterbury Black, who overhauled it for the loss of two wickets in the 30th over. Former Black Caps Shannon Stewart (58) and Peter Fulton (24) top scored for Canterbury Country. The two teams, along with the Canterbury Red and Canterbury under 20 sides, are competing for the Country Shield in the new Canterbury Cricket Association Quad series.

The red, black and under 20 sides, selected by the Canterbury selectors and coached by Canterbury coaches, include top players from the Metro competitions against the best Canterbury Country has to offer. The new competition was developed after discussions between Canterbury Cricket and Canterbury Country Cricket about providing the Canterbury Country and under 20 sides good quality early season cricket following their removal from the Metro one day competitions. The new format involves a full round robin of matches followed by a final with the competition being played on Sundays throughout October.

Ellesmere College and Darfield High School also had students competing. There were more than 50 teams and about 300 students at the event.

Slow start costs Greendale A century from Matt Laffey led his Sefton side to a win over Greendale in the first round of the new premier country cricket competition. Sefton’s player coach finished with 102 in a total of 247/5 at Sefton Domain on Saturday. Jeremy Clayton was the best of the Greendale bowlers taking 2/31. Sefton started slowly losing two early wickets but Laffey put on two good partnerships with Matt Rowe, 35 and Jamie Youngman, 32. In reply, Greendale never got going and were reduced to 17/4 after 10 overs and were eventually all out for 90, giving Sefton a big 157run win. Jeff Jones was the pick of the Sefton bowlers picking up 4/20 with Rowe also chipping in with 2/26. Leeston-Southbridge also had a comfortable 42-run win over South Malvern in a low scoring match at Leeston Park. On a green pitch Leeston-Southbridge managed to get through to 104 all-out in the 28th over with Michael McCaughn taking four wickets for the visitors. Tim Field was the top-scorer for Leeston-Southbridge with 20.

South Malvern were all out for 62 in the 25th over. Field and Ben Donkers took four wickets each. Mitchell Ross took the remaining two. Field finished with 4/10 and Donkers 4/29. At Southbrook Domain, Southbrook were too good for Weedons winning by 119 runs. The home side managed 207/8 in their 45 overs with former Black Cap Shanan Stewart scoring 47 and Daniel Veer chipping in with 35. Weedons were on track to chase down the score in the early stages of their innings being 61/1. They then collapsed losing their last nine wickets for 27 runs. Darren Boyle took 3/8 and Ash Andrews 3/2 for Southbrook. In the closest game of the first round Lincoln were too good for Oxford at Lincoln Domain. Batting first Oxford made 162/9. Luke Waghorn top scored with 44 and Brendan Sclanders was the best of Lincoln’s bowlers with 3-45. Lincoln were in trouble at 89-6 but a 77-run partnership for the seventh wicket between Jamie Chapman, 48 not-out, and Jake Schwass, 37 not-out, led the home side to a four-wicket win.

PACE: Lincoln bowlers Matt McKenzie (above) and Hugh Paterson were under pressure against Oxford on Saturday. In a close game Oxford made 162/9, with Lincoln winning by four wickets.

Selwyn aquatic facilities manger Kathy Moore said it was a great achievement for the club which was formed in June last year. “The Selwyn club has had significant growth and development in its first year operating. Last year at the same meet there were only two swimmers representing the team.” In total, the team came away with 26 medals, including 15 gold, five silver and six bronze. There were also a number of personal best times for the swimmers which qualified them for the finals, scoring valuable points for the team. The club currently has 38 competitive swimmers and aims to have more qualify for regional and national meets in 2016.

The Lincoln High School Under 15 team, coached by Chris Stirling and Wiremu Gray, travelled to Waimea on Sunday 30th August to compete in the South Island co-ed Under 15 Rugby Tournament. Although this has been running for nearly 30 years, Lincoln has only been competing in it for the last 6 years. Each year the team’s performances have been improving at the Tournament and this year was no exception. The boys came together to play for the first time on Monday 31st August and strung together a performance that belied the fact that this was there first time together and won convincingly against Central Southland. The second game of the day they played against

Garin College, a team that had also had a convincing win in the morning, but after a tight 1st half Lincoln ran out easy winners. Day 2 saw a huge deterioration in weather conditions, so in wet and windy conditions the team battled to a 17-7 win over Mt Aspiring College. In the afternoon if anything the conditions were even worse for a quarter final game against John McGlashan College. Despite the best efforts of the team, the opposition had a hard fought 12-0 victory. Day 3 saw the team in a playoff for 5th and 6th. This game was against Taieri High School. It was extremely even however Taieri won 19-14 in the last play of the game.

TUESDAY OCTOBER 6 2015

Don’t light a fire if wind is forecast Selwyn residents are advised that they should not light outdoor fires if windy conditions are forecast. Current weather conditions are unsettled and strong nor’ west winds are common in springtime so people need to check current and future weather conditions carefully before lighting any fires. It is a breach of the Council’s Fire Bylaw to light a fire in conditions which may cause a fire to spread. If you ignore these rules you may be liable for the costs of fighting a fire and any damage from a fire. Please remember that the vast majority of fire fighters in Selwyn are volunteers. In the hill and high country areas of Selwyn a fire permit is required before fires can be lit and in and near residential areas outdoor fires are not allowed under Environment Canterbury air rules except for gas cookers, barbeques, hangis & umu. Current fire permits are suspended until further notice, please contact the Council’s Rural Fire Officer on 347 2800.

Consultation on Central Plains Water loan

Be part of

Shakeout

The Council is currently consulting on a proposal to amend its LongTerm Plan 2015-25 to allow an $8 million loan to be made to Central Plains Water Limited to fund design work for the next stage of the Central Plains Water scheme. More information about this proposal is available online at www.selwyn.govt.nz, and from Council offices and libraries. Public meetings on the proposal will be held at:

At 9.15am on Thursday 15 October businesses, households and schools across New Zealand will stop what they’re doing to take part in a national earthquake drill called Shakeout. Shakeout was first held in 2012 and 1.3 million New Zealanders took part in the drill. The 2015 exercise will be the second time Shakeout has been held and we want Selwyn residents to be part of the drill. There are already over 6,500 Selwyn residents and school children who have registered to take part. Shakeout is a chance to practice what you, your family and your colleagues should do if an earthquake strikes. The advice from experts on what actions you should take in an earthquake is simple: · DROP down on your hands and knees. This position protects you from falling items but allows you to move if necessary · COVER your head and neck (and your entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk (if it is no more than a few steps away from you). If there is no shelter nearby, get down near an interior wall (or next to low-lying furniture that won’t fall on you), and cover your head and neck with your arms and hands. · HOLD on to your shelter (or your position to protect your head and neck) until the shaking stops. Be prepared to move with your shelter if the shaking shifts it around.

Malvern Community Board News The Board held their September meeting at the Kirwee Hall. The evening was well attended by the Kirwee Township, Kirwee Reserve and Courtenay Reserve Committees. Issues raised included: · cell phone and internet coverage · roading and the need for repairs as well as strengthening of roads · appreciate interaction with Council staff The Board allocated a grant to two students to compete at the Stage three competition of the New Zealand Junior Free Ride Tour. The Annual Community Service Awards are now open to receive nominations. The awards acknowledge and recognise service of a voluntary nature given by a resident of the Malvern Community Board area, or a non-resident person who performs their service to the betterment of this area, or a resident who performs their service outside this community. The next away meeting will be held at Springfield on 23 November 2015. The 27 October 2015 meeting will be held at the Darfield Community Rooms followed by the grant recipients evening.

Check out term four classes at local facilities If you are outside in an earthquake move a few steps away from buildings, trees, streetlights, and power lines, then drop, cover and hold. If you are driving, pull over to a clear location, stop and stay there with your seatbelt on until the shaking stops. Once the shaking stops, proceed with caution and avoid bridges or ramps that might have been damaged. To register yourself or your business to be part of Shakeout visit www.shakeout.govt.nz.

SELWYN TIMES

TUESDAY OCTOBER 6 2015

Don’t light a fire if wind is forecast Selwyn residents are advised that they should not light outdoor fires if windy conditions are forecast. Current weather conditions are unsettled and strong nor’ west winds are common in springtime so people need to check current and future weather conditions carefully before lighting any fires. It is a breach of the Council’s Fire Bylaw to light a fire in conditions which may cause a fire to spread. If you ignore these rules you may be liable for the costs of fighting a fire and any damage from a fire. Please remember that the vast majority of fire fighters in Selwyn are volunteers. In the hill and high country areas of Selwyn a fire permit is required before fires can be lit and in and near residential areas outdoor fires are not allowed under Environment Canterbury air rules except for gas cookers, barbeques, hangis & umu. Current fire permits are suspended until further notice, please contact the Council’s Rural Fire Officer on 347 2800.

Consultation on Central Plains Water loan

Be part of

Shakeout

The Council is currently consulting on a proposal to amend its LongTerm Plan 2015-25 to allow an $8 million loan to be made to Central Plains Water Limited to fund design work for the next stage of the Central Plains Water scheme. More information about this proposal is available online at www.selwyn.govt.nz, and from Council offices and libraries. Public meetings on the proposal will be held at:

At 9.15am on Thursday 15 October businesses, households and schools across New Zealand will stop what they’re doing to take part in a national earthquake drill called Shakeout. Shakeout was first held in 2012 and 1.3 million New Zealanders took part in the drill. The 2015 exercise will be the second time Shakeout has been held and we want Selwyn residents to be part of the drill. There are already over 6,500 Selwyn residents and school children who have registered to take part. Shakeout is a chance to practice what you, your family and your colleagues should do if an earthquake strikes. The advice from experts on what actions you should take in an earthquake is simple: · DROP down on your hands and knees. This position protects you from falling items but allows you to move if necessary · COVER your head and neck (and your entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk (if it is no more than a few steps away from you). If there is no shelter nearby, get down near an interior wall (or next to low-lying furniture that won’t fall on you), and cover your head and neck with your arms and hands. · HOLD on to your shelter (or your position to protect your head and neck) until the shaking stops. Be prepared to move with your shelter if the shaking shifts it around.

· Darfield Recreation Centre on Tuesday 6 October, 7pm · Dunsandel Sports Centre on Wednesday 7 October, 7pm · Rolleston Council offices on Thursday 8 October, 7pm

Malvern Community Board News The Board held their September meeting at the Kirwee Hall. The evening was well attended by the Kirwee Township, Kirwee Reserve and Courtenay Reserve Committees.

The next away meeting will be held at Springfield on 23 November 2015. The 27 October 2015 meeting will be held at the Darfield Community Rooms followed by the grant recipients evening.

Check out term four classes at local facilities If you are outside in an earthquake move a few steps away from buildings, trees, streetlights, and power lines, then drop, cover and hold. If you are driving, pull over to a clear location, stop and stay there with your seatbelt on until the shaking stops. Once the shaking stops, proceed with caution and avoid bridges or ramps that might have been damaged. To register yourself or your business to be part of Shakeout visit www.shakeout.govt.nz.

What to Wear To The Races This Season

MAN OF PEACE: One of the photos of Gandhi which will be displayed at the Lincoln Event Centre and Darfield Library.

Art and culture to the fore in Selwyn As a district, I believe that Selwyn punches above its weight in terms of the richness of our arts community, as reflected by the number and quality of exhibitions and arts events that we are lucky enough to be able to enjoy throughout the year. Last Friday I attended the opening of an inspirational collection of photographs of Mahatma Gandhi who was an influential figure in India and around the world for his work promoting the values of tolerance, service to humanity, harmony and non-violence. I would like to acknowledge Surinder and Archna Tandon for making these photographs available from a private collection so that the Selwyn public can see and enjoy them free of charge. The exhibition was timed perfectly, since the October 2 was the day of Gandhi’s birth and is now recognised as the International Day of Non-Violence in honour of Gandhi’s focus on peace and non-violent action during his lifetime. As well as being significant from an arts point of view, the exhibition is also significant from a cultural point of view, with the second weekend of the exhibition coinciding neatly with the Lincoln Multicultural Festival. This represents a great opportunity for us all to appreciate and celebrate the diversity of cultures we have within Selwyn and New Zealand. Here in Selwyn, just under 17 per cent of

Amy Adams Selwyn MP

the population was born overseas. While we are statistically not as multicultural as many other parts of New Zealand, migrants are an important part of our population, particularly in our university town of Lincoln, and in some of our rural areas. It is therefore great to see the community’s growing interest in learning about and experiencing other cultures as our population continues to become more diverse. I am sure that this exhibition will promote even greater understanding of Indian culture and history and lead to new insights into our shared values and aspirations. The Gandhi exhibition will be on display at the Lincoln Event Centre this coming weekend. Images from the exhibition will also be displayed as smaller photographs at Darfield Library during Darfield Artweek from October 10 to 17. Artweek has been held in Darfield for more than 30 years now, giving local artists the opportunity to showcase their work. This is another example of the energy and commitment within our local arts community.

The sun is beginning to shine and race season is nearly upon us again, raising the all important question of what to wear? Firstly shop early to ensure you get the pick of the gorgeous array of dresses on offer for summer. Remember you are also competing with ladies looking for Wedding attire so get in early in the season to avoid being disappointed by a lack of sizes being available. Choosing your dress is usually the best place to start, so choose something fun, elegant and classy which fits you perfectly. Dont be afraid to get a skilled dressmaker to do a little tweaking of the dress if required to achieve the perfect fit. Race wear provides an opportunity to let your imagination go wild and is the perfect excuse to wear bold bright colours and prints. Florals always look appropriate for a day at the races especially in A line or shift shapes. Jumpsuits are a huge look for the season so do consider this as an alternative to a dress if you prefer. A jumpsuit can look super classy when teamed up with bold accessories and bright lipstick! A jacket that co ordinates with your outfit is a must and will ensure you enjoy the day whatever the weather. shorter cropped shapes work well with dresses but it will depend on the style of dress you choose. A wool pashmina can also work if you are wanting to really emphasize the dress, as will a softer bolero type jacket. Accessories will give your outfit personality and are often what creates that individual look.Dont let your accessories compete with your

outfit for attention. if you choose a simple more understated dress then play up the shoes, fascinator and handbag but if the wow factor is coming from your dress, it may be better to stick to more understated accessories. Remember the accessories need to co ordinate with the outfit but not necessarily all match each other. in other words the shoes and bag may match but the fascinator may be in a neutral for example. metallics are a huge look in footwear so heels in a silver, pewter or gold will finish off your outfit perfectly. Pay attention to the small details if you want to achieve the polished best dressed lady look. This includes fingers and toes, jewellery and hosiery. if wearing hosiery, super sheer often works best and you cant go past toeless pantyhose which look very natural and create the illusion of perfect tanned legs. Viva La moda has a huge range of fashion, shoes and accessories in store to help you to achieve the perfect look for you so come on in and have a play!

How do you communicate with your clients on projects? Someone told me that when she is handling multiple projects for a client, she uses a colour coded Excel spreadsheet that can be emailed back and forth listing the project, project number, status of each project, what action needs to be taken and if anything is needed from the client. This method is a bit oldfashioned and cumbersome. Here are three FREASY (free and easy) ways to accomplish the same thing using cloud (internetbased) software. Trello.com organises your projects into boards. With one look, you can see what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process. If you’d like to take a tour through Trello, here’s the link trello.com/tour. OneDrive. com or GoogleDrive.com Both are free. OneDrive is Office 2013, Google offers the equivalent. Excel/ Sheets can be created online or uploaded and shared with clients. The settings can be set to simply view, download or edit. If the client would like to use the spreadsheet format, this is easy, doesn’t need to be emailed back and forth and one document is worked on by both parties. Dropbox.com is simply a cloud file storage app. Like a memory stick. It differs from One/Google Drives in that nothing is editable. It’s simply a medium to store and share documents online. This is quite useful when dealing with files that are too large to email.

Beautiful blooming bedding flowers BY TOD PALENSKI

If you’ve got an area in your garden where you want to create a mass of colour, you can’t go past petunias. They are prolific bloomers that, if looked after, will continue to flower all summer. You can choose from plain purple, red, pink or white. How about purple with dashes of white like on the primetime violet star? Or the duo red and white variety which, like the name suggests, produces a beautiful mixture of red and white flower? Not sure what colour to select? Then try a mixed bundle. Don’t have a big garden to fill with bedding flowers? Don’t worry about that either. All petunias really need to flourish is a sunny, free-draining spot. They grow equally as well in pots and hanging baskets making them perfect for just about any garden. Once you’ve selected your seedlings and sunny spot to plant, simply dig small holes, around 3cm deep and 25cm apart, and plant. Be sure to watch out for slugs or trying using our beer bait. It also pays to keep an eye out for aphids. If you spot these pesky pests, a general insecticide or spray of organic alternative, neem oil will sort that problem. And make sure to keep them watered. If you’re not sure how thirsty they are, stick your finger in the soil 2cm deep. If the soil is dry, they will need a drink.

Then sit back and wait just four to six weeks for your beautiful petunias to bloom. Remember to pick off dead heads to encourage re-flowering.

COLOUR: Plant petunias 25cm apart to get maximum exposure when they bloom.

Spring Fling is on again F

or the fifth year running, the Ellesmere Spring Fling will be held again at David Hobbs’ Broadfield Garden. “The Spring Fling is a day out for the people of Selwyn and beyond. Held in a beautiful 10 acre garden of world class and national significance those attending can wander around the garden and stalls, or sit and relax in the peaceful setting making it a great garden party,” says organiser Vanessa Thompson. Stalls will be selling local fresh produce, crafts, and plants and Devonshire teas with quality food available for people to enjoy while listening to live music which will be a mix of

easy listening through to classical. Throughout the garden there will be displays of the work of renowned steel sculptor, Allan O’Loughlin. These masterpieces will be a talking point for guests as they stroll around or take a garden tour. The event is the sole fundraiser for Lincoln & Districts Community Care Association Inc. (LDCC) and is run completely by volunteers. “We get lots of compliments from the people attending and stall holders on how well the event is operated,” relates Vanessa. “We’re incredibly lucky to have so much support from the community, especially Lincoln Rotary members who provide phenomenal help on the day and leading up to the event. They do anything asked of them no matter how big,” adds Janice Burnett, chairperson of LDCC. Local Girl Guides, Scouts, future leaders from Lincoln University, and LDCC staff, board members and exercise and walking group members also assist with the event while local businesses provide sponsorship.

This year’s major sponsors are Nevele R Stud and ‘Christian Cullen’ with additional sponsorship provided by Lincoln’s New World and Ray White Lincoln. “Nevele R Stud is the home of pacer ‘Christian Cullen’ and their involvement is a reflection of the importance of horses in Selwyn’s history,” adds Vanessa. Owner of ‘Christian Cullen’, Ian Dobson says that ‘Christian Cullen’ and his father, ‘In The Pocket’ have been sensational in their achievements. “They have changed the breeding in Australia and New Zealand by inserting speed into the horses they father,” says Ian who maintains that Nevele R Stud is one of the top, if not top studs in New Zealand because all the horses get the very best of treatment. The Ellesmere Spring Fling country garden experience will be held on Sunday, 11th October between 11am and 5pm at Broadfield Garden, 250 Selwyn Road, Broadfield; Adults $20, Children free.

GARDENING

With spring comes busy time Rachel Vogan talks you through what to be doing in the garden now WHERE DID that first month of spring go? In winter it feels like an age waiting for the season to change and once it does, it seems to be half over in the blink of an eye. For those growing your own food, and why wouldn’t you considering fresh is best, it’s all hands on deck now. It is all about planting new-season seedlings and sowing seeds. For flower lovers, soak up the last of the daffodils and tulips and enjoy the magnolias while they last, and once the pansies and polyanthus start to button off, be sure to plant loads of summer flowers like petunia, lobelia, snapdragons, begonia, cosmos and stocks to brighten up the garden. Ponds could do with some attention. Freshen up the water and remove any dead leaves, sticks or unhealthy looking plants.

the birds often help themselves to a few seeds.

VEGETABLE GARDEN

Asparagus is bursting into life. The trick to keep it coming is to keep picking it – simply slice off the spears at ground level. Water is vital for a juicy abundant crop. Aim to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Plant out new rows of brassicas like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, cavalo nero and pak choy. French, butter, bush, runner and borlotti beans germinate within 10-14 days, and can be sown now, but hold off a couple of weeks if you live in a frosty area as young bean plants are frost-tender. Corn can be planted now, just make sure you sow plenty of seed as birds are renown for digging up freshly planted seed. Seedlings can only be planted out in the warmest frost-free areas. Potatoes: plant out chitted/sprouted seed potatoes in rows, 30-50cm apart.

Get your spring planting sorted. - Landscaping plants of all shapes & sizes. - Ornamental & Specimen trees. - Native plants for all purposes. - Hedging & Topiaries. - Fruit & Nut plants.

SWAN PLANTS

Start young swan plants now, either sow them from seed or look for plants in the shops. Choose a sunny position. If planting in the ground, add plenty of compost or manure before planting, and place the plants where you can easily see the action taking place. Pots and tubs are a good option too. To get the best sized plants make sure the container is at least the size of a kitchen bucket or bigger.

SWEET PEAS

Young, new season’s plants are bursting into life now and will be well on their way to flowering. Pinch the tips out of young plants to encourage more side shoots; these new tendrils will produce more flowers. Summer-flowering varieties need at least 12 hours daylight to trigger optimum flowering, so be patient. If you can find some extra space, plant out some more as there’s no such thing as too many sweet peas. They make a brilliant tub plant climbing up a simple bamboo tepee and a fabulous gift for someone who has everything.

Intelligro: making gardening easy Question

My garlic is looking quite yellow on the tips. What is wrong?

Yellowing at the tips of leaves may be a sign of stress associated with watering either too much or not enough. If it’s in pots, check there is enough drainage they don’t like having too much water in there. Also, if you are watering a lot each day, try cut back. If you aren’t watering very often, establish a regular watering pattern. A boost of nutrition will help too

Answer:

Question

Can I use general garden fertiliser on my pot plants?

We recommend you use a fertiliser that has been specifically designed for plants in pots. This helps to ensure they are getting the right nutrients, and that they are not getting overdosed in anything they don’t need. Intelligro topdressing fertiliser, and Intellicote are two excellent examples of fertilisers that work exceptionally well with a variety of potted plants.

Answer:

Question

Where is the best place to plant lavender?

Full sun is a must, don’t consider planting it in a shady damp position, it needs full sun and excellent drainage for healthy growth. You may also want to consider that the plant will encourage bees so plant away from areas that are used extensively through the summer months.

Answer:

Question

When should I fertilise my lawn?

Now is a great time to fertilise. Use our Lawn Fertiliser and water thoroughly after application. We also have a slow-release lawn fertiliser available which will supply your lawn with the nutrients if you forget to do a top up. Keep on top of fertilising and watering now so you don’t have to play catch-up come summer.

Pinch out the tips of young plants to encourage more blooms.

Get those seeds sown over the next few weeks, so once the frosts finish next month you are ready to get your plants into the soil. If your seedlings are already up, keep them warm and well-watered. Prepare tomato beds by blending in a couple of handfuls of sheep pellets in and around where each plant will go, mix in tomato fertiliser at the same time. This preparation sets the soil up perfectly for the young seedlings. One packet of seed will produce dozens of plants, so to get a good variety maybe share seedlings with friends and neighbours.

VERTICAL PLANTERS

These are all the rage in Europe and Australia where outdoor space is at a premium. A range of types are available from felt-like material ones through to plastic and moulded versions, and are all easily attached to walls and fences. Make sure you fill them with the best possible potting mix, as they have little room for the roots to expand you need to make sure they have plenty of nutrients. For anything edible, make sure the planters you hang will get at least 4-6 hours of sunlight a day. Adding liquid plant food into the watering regime is an easy way to keep the plants looking fabulous.

After tax profits down but

Synlait poised for earnings growth Synlait Milk has reported an underlying net profit after tax (NPAT) of $12.2 million for the financial year ending July 31, 2015 (FY15), compared with $19.6 million in FY14.

The Synlait Milk plant

R

eported after tax profit was $10.6 million after accounting for unrealised foreign exchange losses, which will be unwound in future periods. Revenue for the period was $448.1 million compared to $600.5 million in FY14, largely due to decreases

in dairy prices. The underlying NPAT, while within market guidance, was down on expectations due to lower than anticipated lactoferrin sales and Synlait’s board of directors choosing to prioritise payments to milk suppliers in a period of a very low milk price.

“FY15 has been an extremely busy year. We’ve continued to develop our existing ingredients and bulk nutritionals business, as well as bringing lactoferrin to market and increasing production volumes of finished infant formula in retail-ready cans,” chairman Graeme Milne said. “At the same time, we’ve continued our investment in our nutritional capacity and capability with our $250 million growth initiatives programme nearing completion. “All of this has been in a global operating environment where milk prices have fallen to unsustainably low levels and this is reflected in our FY15 revenue. Our suppliers are an important part of our business and we’ve prioritised paying them higher advances and final payments for their milk, relative to our earnings, in what has turned out to be the first of probably two very challenging years on farm.” Mr Milne added there will be an initial focus in FY16 on commissioning Synlait’s third large-scale spray dryer and new quality-testing laboratory this month, but that focus will shift towards developing nutritional and infant formula products with key customers to leverage the increased capability and capacity. “Based on the expected increase in volumes from both dryer three and our blending and consumer packaging facility, profitability will be in advance of anything achieved to date,” Mr Milne said.

Managing director and CEO John Penno said the strategy to make more from milk required innovation both on farm and throughout the manufacturing process. “We are poised for earnings growth through our value added strategy. We now have the customers, people, manufacturing capability and milk suppliers to deliver a significant increase in our overall volumes, particularly the volume of finished infant formula,” he said. “Once we complete our growth initiatives, we will have one of the largest and highest specification infant formula production sites globally with an integrated supply chain from source to our customers. This integration is valuable to consumers who want to know where their products come from and how they’re made.” Synlait paid its milk suppliers a total average milk price of $4.54 per kgMS for the 2014/2015 dairy season. This price consists of a $4.48 per kgMS base milk price and a $0.06 per kgMS average payment for seasonal and value added premiums. The forecast milk price for the 2015/2016 season has also been revised from $5.50 per kgMS to $5 per kgMS. In accordance with Synlait’s Dividend Policy, Synlait’s Board of Directors have determined that no dividend will be payable to shareholders for the financial year ending July 31, 2015.

Identifying insect species

crucial to protect the environment Students at Lincoln University are covering the length and breadth of New Zealand to discover new insect species and keep ahead of potential threats to agriculture and the environment. “This research, to understand what [insects] are present in New Zealand, is vital for us to recognise any change.” collections, Brown discovered that it first arrived in New Zealand in 1996. This research was published recently in the New Zealand Journal of Zoology. Predicting the impact of a newly introduced species is difficult, Mr Brown says. “This introduced weevil is only found in low numbers, but is already widely dispersed in the eastern South Island. It feeds on native species, so its numbers should be monitored in conservation areas.” New Zealand has stringent biosecurity, but it is impossible to prevent every incursion. While most species are not harmful, some insects that have established in the country, such as the Argentine stem weevil, clover root weevil and tomato potato psyllid, are damaging to the country’s economy and environment. “These discoveries highlight how important it is to have experts out collecting, accurately identifying and cataloguing insects. By depositing specimens in insect collections, we can quickly identify new species in the future,” Mr Brown says. The students have archived specimens of their identified insects in national insect collections held at Lincoln University, Landcare Research Manaaki Whenua and the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.

io-Protection Research Centre students Francesco Martoni, Samuel Brown and Hamish Patrick have visited mountains, grasslands and forests to collect insect specimens. They have identified about 50 new species. “This research, to understand what [insects] are present in New Zealand, is vital for us to recognise any change, especially if it involves the introduction of species that may become pests or spread disease,” says Dr Karen Armstrong, a senior researcher at Lincoln University and the students’ supervisor. “The only way to stay ahead of this and to detect damaging interactions is to know what is here. And for that, we need to produce experts in traditional taxonomy who are also trained to use modern technological approaches to describe and discover [insect species],” Dr Armstrong says. Mr Martoni has collected psyllids from more than 200 locations, identifying more than 60 different species. Mr Brown has described more than 40 species of native weevil. Mr Patrick, besides having found and identified one new species of picture wing fly during a Lincoln Summer Scholarship, and four new species of New Zealand’s rare black mountain ringlet butterflies during his honours degree at Lincoln, is now researching how species that are very closely related to the highly invasive Queensland fruit fly can be distinguished. Expertise in taxonomy is vital for the future acknowledges Dr Armstrong. While most of the insects identified by the students are native to New Zealand, one weevil is a relatively recent introduction from Europe not previously known to occur here.

Cut the rind off the piece of pork and sprinkle with salt, unless the meat has been pre-salted and a good grinding of black pepper.

Add the Grand Marnier and allow it to soak in. Ladle in the strawberries and juice. To make the custard, beat the egg yolks and sugar until light and thick. Heat the milk and vanilla bean in a heavy-based saucepan until almost boiling. Tip the hot milk onto the egg mixture in a bowl and stir well to combine. Rinse the pan that the milk was heated in, return it to the heat and strain the egg, sugar and milk mixture into it. Carefully reheat the custard, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens enough to coat the spoon. Do not let this boil, as the mixture will curdle. If the mixture starts to curdle around the edges, immediately remove from the heat and whisk vigorously until smooth. Once the custard is cool, tip it over the strawberries. Finally, lightly whip the cream then spread it over the custard. Decorate with reserved halved strawberries. Chill before serving.

To make the sauce, put the casserole pot over a low heat and use a spatula to scrape any brownings from the sides of the pot into the liquid. If there is less than about a cup of liquid in the pot, add a little more water. Strain into a small pot. If there is a lot of oil on the surface, skim some off, but leave behind a few spoonfuls to enrich the sauce. Use a sharp knife to peel the oranges, including all the pith, then cut out the segments one by one, leaving the membranes and core behind. Use your hand to squeeze the core over the pot of sauce to extract any remaining orange juice. Bring the sauce to the boil, whisk to emulsify the oil, then taste and correct the seasoning. Drop in the orange segments. Spoon some of the sauce and orange segments over the meat on the platter and put the rest into a sauceboat.

s part of Risingholme’s 70th anniversary celebrations in 2014, the centre worked together with the Doris Lusk Estate and the Dunedin School of Art Polytechnic to provide a place for a ceramic practitioner to come and work with their students and tutors. The Doris Lusk Ceramics Residency has been created to encourage and sustain a vibrant ceramic community as well as provide an opportunity for ceramic artists to participate in art educational practices. Ceramic classes at Risingholme raised funds through very successful exhibitions of student work. Over the years, Risingholme has enjoyed a vast array of prominent community educators, including Doris Holland (nee Lusk). Ms Lusk tutored ceramics at Risingholme from the late 1940s up until the late ‘60s. She was a dominant figure in New Zealand Art and Arts Education during her lifetime and contributed to a vibrant New Zealand Arts dialogue. Her attributes include her appointment as the head of Ilam School of Fine Arts at Canterbury University, president of the Canterbury Potters Association, president of The CSA Gallery (CoCa) and she received the Governor-General Art Award posthumously. Zehavit Darlington is the inaugural recipient of the Doris Lusk Ceramics Residency in 2015 and will take up her residency in November this year. Zehavit

has a very diverse ceramic practice and currently is a ceramic teacher in primary schools in the Otago Region, the Potter’s Cottage, Otago Peninsula and to people with intellectual disabilities at the Mosgiel Ability Resource Centre. She is also a practicing studio artist, supplying design shops with functional vessels. She also exhibits on a regular basis. Risingholme celebrated Adult Learners’ Week in September by hosting a function in which outstanding adult learners were celebrated. The event was sponsored by Ako Aotearoa and ACE Aotearoa.

Outback capable in the rough SPECIFICATIONS

Even though it’s early spring some of the skifields are still in full swing and you can bet those car parks are well represented by Subaru, particularly Forester and Outback. A new generation Outback has just landed, and I’ve been fortunate enough to score a drive in each of the driveline variations. While I particularly like the smooth delivery of power in the six-cylinder model, my favourite is the 2-litre turbocharged diesel which this evaluation focuses on. Not only do you get a magnificent burst of power through the midrange, but its 6.3-litre per 100km (45mpg) combined cycle fuel usage rating is quite extraordinary for a full-size mainstream wagon. The new Outback doesn’t appear a lot different to its predecessor, it is chunkier and has further refinements in terms of engineering, but the concept hasn’t been lost, it is the quintessential SUV packaged in a body style that is traditional. Interestingly, Subaru has dropped production of its Legacy wagon in favour of the Outback, the Outback is a wagon only, the Legacy is a sedan only.

CONTROL: Subaru’s Outback is permanently engaged in four-wheeldrive Under the bonnet is an engine which is the result of a long-term development process by Subaru, the company has held on to its belief in horizontally-opposed (boxer) engines and the wait was worth it, the 2-litre unit is not only available in Outback, it has found its way across to Forester. Rated at 110kW and 350Nm, both outputs are realised amazingly low in the rev band at 3600rpm and 1800rpm; consequently, the quad-camshaft unit is a powerhouse low down. The Outback will reach 100km/h from a standstill in in 9.2sec and will haul in a highway overtake in 4.5sec (80km/h-120km/h). Even when working hard to initiate acceleration the engine is smooth and sophisticated, there is only a minor indication it is diesel-fed, such is its relatively quiet

operating manner. Drive is through a seven-step continuously variable transmission and it, too, stands out for its efficient operating manner. It works much like a traditional automatic which has noticeable ratio changes, but the gearing is still fluid and progressive. Even in base specification, the Outback gets steering wheelmounted paddles so that the driver can be involved in the gearshift process, if he or she desires. Sequential changes can also be made at the gearshift lever itself. Together, the engine and gearbox combine to provide complete driveline harmony along with the economy benefits diesel engines provide in the first instance. My test combined average listed around 7.6l/100km (37mpg), with 5.8l/100km (49mpg) available on a

steady highway cruise, the engine turning over at just 1800rpm at 100km/h in the tallest part of the gearing. These are good figures for a 1590kg vehicle, and even if you take into account road user charges, the Outback owner who travels long distances will appreciate the low fuel use. I took the test car westbound to the road which runs from the back of Sheffield through to Coalgate. It is unsealed for most of the distance and it is a good test of suspension control and grip which is promoted through Subaru’s symmetrical four-wheel-drive system. To top it off, the road was soaked through a southerly change, yet I was comfortable in the test car even when I was pushing into the corners, it has steering

Price: Subaru Outback, $47,990. Dimensions: Length,4815mm; width, 1840mm; height, 1675mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder longitudinal (boxer), four-wheeldrive, 1998cc, 110kW, 350Nm, continuously variable automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 9.2sec.

feel and control through the drive system which delivers confidence. And that is something Subaru promotes as a car maker, the Outback is balanced and offers dynamics which is by far a safety system within itself. In the loose, an X-Mode drive proportioning system is there so that each wheel has the best chance of grip. The Outback range starts here at $44,990 for the 2.5-litre, fourcylinder petrol, the big 3.8-litre six tops out at $59,990, while the diesel in base form sits mid-way at $47,990 or $54,990 for Premium specification. I’ve made no secret over the years of my appreciation of clever and alternative technology. Subaru are the master of both, most of what they do technically is just a little bit removed from the mainstream. That not only endears me to the brand, but to the many, especially South Island recreational enthusiasts, who also find that the engineering practices suit their lifestyle.

Keep it clean

Before clearing the gutter of any debris, it’s best to securely block off the tops of any downpipes with a large rag or old towel. This prevents any of the collected sludge being washed down and potential causing a blocking. Beginning at one end, carefully scoop out any leaves and sludge (either with a purposemade gutter scoop or small plastic trowel) and deposit the debris in a bucket. Work your way along the length of each section of guttering, emptying the bucket as necessary. Once the guttering is clear of mess, remove the rag or towel and sluice the gutter with clean water, scrubbing (if necessary) with a stiff-bristled brush. Once you’re satisfied the inside of the gutter is clear and clean, use a preparatory house or paint wash (diluted with warm water to

For any really stubborn or unsightly areas of mould, consider using a preparatory moss and mould killer. While up the ladder, do a routine check on the condition of the guttering, ensuring that water runs away freely and there are no splits, gaps in the joints or broken brackets along each section. Check also along the edge of the roof for any potential maintenance issues as now is the time to address any signs of rust or other damage.

a garden hose down the top of the drainpipe until it stops; then turn it on full. This may be enough to dislodge the blockage. Failing that, consider using a length of strong wire or a thin rod to shift the compacted debris. For truly stubborn blockages, it may be necessary to remove the downpipe completely. Beginning at the bottom of the pipe, unscrew each bracket and carefully remove the downpipe (or each section, as necessary) and free the inside of any blockage with a piece of garden stake (or strong bamboo). sluice the pipe out with running water. in extreme cases it may be necessary to use a water blaster. Once unblocked, replace the pipe, screwing back the brackets in reverse order. preventiOn prevention is better than cure so consider placing plastic netting or mesh over gutterings to act as a filter and stop leaves and other large debris causing a problem. There are also a number of other custom-made gutter products on the market including

[Edition datE] brush-like ‘whiskers’ and other ‘gutter guards’. remember, however, that even with these gutter protectors you’ll still need to check your guttering system annually to ensure run-off flows freely. small particles of dust and dirt can still accumulate underneath any gutter protector causing a build-up of sludge, and inhibiting water flow, both of which can lead to potential damage. if in doubt, seek advice from your building professional.

Top Tip

instead of blocking downpipes with a rag or towel, consider installing a water diverter on each. This purposemade device is simple to fit and readily diverts debris from the downpipe by way of a plastic flap. When not being used, the flap is clicked the other way, and water will flow normally through the pipe and into the drain.

GETTING THE RIGHT AMOUNT

OF STORAGE

By utilising roof space where sufficient space allows, they provide an economic and convenient storage area for less used items.

A

little extra storage is always handy in keeping the house tidier and when building or renovating, adding in extra storage may not add much to the budget. roof trusses are becoming very popular. By utilising roof space where sufficient space allows, they provide an economic and convenient storage area for less used items. Attic trusses are usually installed in the garage with access via an attic ladder. placement will depend on the roof shape and pitch with attic trusses unsuitable where a low pitched roof. Customised or kitset shelving can be installed in the garage also, however it is important to match the quality and strength of any readymade shelving to what will be loaded on them. Hall cupboards with sliders and shelving to the ceiling are great for storing those rarely accessed items such as Christmas decorations. The usefulness of higher shelves will depend on the height of the sliders or door as will positioning of and distance between shelves and it is a good

idea to calculate this before having these installed. More room can also be gained if the hot water cylinder is positioned in the roof cavity. in pantries try a mix of open shelves and cupboards for breakables. Also think about those tall objects such as a liquidiser or large pots that might not fit into a pot drawer. in the kitchen itself, a mix of cupboards and drawers can be handy while an appliance cupboard is convenient for the toaster, jug, and coffee percolator and hides these away during the day. it might also house the food processor, electric beater and an electric can opener. Corner kitchen cupboards can utilise space that might otherwise be lost as can cupboards on the dining side of an island. in tray cupboards, vertical and horizontal dividers increase storage capacity and make it easier to stack cooking trays, muffin tins and platters. in the bedrooms and ensuite, wardrobe organisers are very useful. ventilated or a mix of ventilated and Melteca kitsets can

be purchased or purpose built shelving of varying heights installed by a builder or joiner out of wood, customwood or melamine. Combine hanging areas with shelves and drawers for clothing plus space to store the shoes. not forgetting the laundry, ensuring

sufficient storage for the washing basket or trolley, brooms and mops can de-clutter the garage. in a home with young children storing cleaning products in a high or inaccessible cupboard is safer while incorporating a dirty linen drawer close to the washing machine is really helpful especially if the family can be encouraged to trot their dirty clothes through to where they will be laundered. if building a two-storey house, the space under the stairs can be converted into a storage cupboard for stashing a myriad of possessions or a study nook which might be made more functional with purpose built fitted office furniture. Whether a collector of possessions or a minimalist, having good storage makes the house look tidier and easier to clean.
