Plan to ditch Lincoln car parks A plan to develop Lincoln’s town centre would lower the speed limit and reduce car parking on the main street – a contentious issue for business owners. After years of development, the draft Lincoln Town Centre Plan will go out for public consultation if approved by district councillors at tomorrow’s meeting. A previous version of the draft plan was consulted on as early as 2011 but extensive growth and a number of developments since then meant the district council has had to go back to the drawing board. Under the plan, car parks on the north side of Gerald St would be removed to accommodate cycleways on both sides of the road and a widened footpath on the south side. Selwyn Times A 30km/h speed limit would also be 266mm x 90mm introduced. The loss of the car parks would be

partly off-set by turning West Belt, Lyttelton St and Maurice St into ‘parking precincts’ with existing parallel parks changed to angled parks. The development of more shared car parks behind businesses would also be encouraged. The Famous Grouse Hotel owner Craig Bradford said removing car parks on the main street was “ridiculous” as there were not enough already. The plan would also require buildings that are placed on the street boundary to have ‘active frontages’ – clear glass windows and doors that face the street. Off-street car parks would have to be placed beside or behind buildings, rather than in front. This, along with the development was intended to make the streetscape more appealing. The consultation is expected to take place in early November with the plan adopted in February.

PO BOX 1467, Christchurch PO BOX Christchurch 1467, Christchurch Proudly owned & operated Proudly Christchurch owned & operated

BY TOM DOUDNEY The identity of a man in the centre of a famous World War 1 photograph has been thrown into question after a new claim by a Waddington resident. In April, Christchurch resident Dave Davies claimed the man was his grandfather David Christie after seeing the photograph on the front of The Star the previous week. Now Waddington resident Fred Bull says he believes the same man is actually his uncle, Clarence Frederick Bull, and that analysis by the police forensics team has backed him up. The photograph, part of the Alexander Turnbull Library, shows soldiers from the Wellington Mounted Rifles Regiment occupying a captured Turkish trench at Gallipoli, on August 7, 1915. This was the day before New Zealand forces captured Chunuk Bair. Christie survived the war and died in 1964, while Clarence Bull died at Gallipoli, within 48 hours of when the photograph was taken. Mr Bull said he had bought a book called Echoes of Gallipoli about five years ago which featured the photo on the front cover and was struck by the likeness of the man to his uncle. “When the same photo came out in The Star supplement in April it was a bigger copy and I felt damn sure it was him so I found out where the photo came from, rang the Turnbull Library

family photographs, a member of the forensics team had also backed up his opinion that the man was his uncle. Mr Davies claim had stemmed from having seen the same photograph at his mother’s house about six years ago, before she died. She had been given it by Mr Davies’ cousin, who had come across it amongst some records during his own time in the army and identified it as Christie. Mr Bull visited Gallipoli in August, where he saw the same photograph on a memorial wall at Anzac Cove. He was surprised to hear there had been a previous claim over the man’s identity but he still believed it was his uncle. Likewise, Mr Davies said Mr Bull’s claim did not sway his belief the man was his grandfather.

Demolition for university building

▌IN ▌ BRIEF Land rezoning

A plan to rezone 20.5ha of land north of Rolleston, allowing it to be subdivided into 36 rural residential lots, is recommended for approval at tomorrow’s district council meeting. Plan Change 44 would see the land, which borders State Highway 1, changed from rural (inner plains) to living 3 zone.

The demolition of Lincoln University’s Hilgendorf building, which was damaged by the September 10 earthquake, continues to change the landscape on campus. A plaque from the building was last week given to descendants of its namesake, pioneering plant scientist Professor Frederick William Hilgendorf who retired in 1936. Granddaughter Jane von Dadelszen and great-granddaughters Charlotte Hilgendorf, Prue Frost and Henrietta Scott attended a lunch at the university to accept the plaque. Demolition of the building, which was opened in 1968, is expected to take until late November. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Public consultation on alcohol sales could go another round BY TOM DOUDNEY

Selwyn residents are likely to be asked to weigh in for a second time on proposed new rules curbing the sale of alcohol. The district council is set to go back to the public on key aspect of its provisional Local Alcohol Policy, including forcing taverns to close no later than 1am and preventing bottle stores from setting up in local shopping centres. At a hearing in May, the Alcohol, Regulatory and Licensing Authority asked the district council to “reconsider” its maximum trading hours of 1am for on-licences and restrictions on the location of licensed premises.

This was in response to appeals by Foodstuffs South Island Ltd, The Mill Retail Holdings and Independent Liquor Ltd, Progressive Enterprises, Lincoln Golf Club, the Hospitality Association of New Zealand and Super Liquor Holdings Ltd. As there was nothing in the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 to dictate how the policy should be reconsidered, the district council sought legal advice and staff have recommended that a second round of public consultation be conducted. District councillors will be asked to approve this at tomorrow’s meeting. During development of the policy, support for the 1am clos-

3

ing time came from the district’s licensing inspector, police and the medical officer of health. At that point, the Christchurch City and Waimakariri District councils were also considering a 1am closing time and the police and medical officer of health supported consistent hours amongst neighbouring authorities. However, the district council has acknowledged not being aware of any major concerns around alcohol-related harm generated by onlicences in Selwyn. The ACC Selwyn community profile 2011 indicated that the place where people had their last drink prior to being arrested was typically at a private residence.

This was supported by the 2013 Research First survey of ‘Community Perceptions of Alcohol’ in Selwyn. The district council was also seeking to prohibit stand-alone bottle stores from locating in areas identified as neighbourhood and local centres situated away from a town’s main centre. However, the district council’s policy would not prevent other shops such as supermarkets, where alcohol is sold but not as the main product, from setting up in these areas. The consultation is proposed to run from October 20 to November 20, with hearings scheduled in early December.

Growth in townships key concerns

How to encourage growth and the need for a wider range of housing options have emerged as key concerns for Malvern and Ellesmere residents. A total of 53 submissions were received on area plans dealing with how townships in both wards should be developed in the future. The area plans will provide a 15year framework for growth and development. They will look at where housing, businesses, open space, community facilities and infrastructure could be located. From submissions and drop in sessions residents made a wide range of suggestions. These included providing for more growth to occur in Doyleston and Southbridge, allowing for business growth in Dunsandel along with improving parking in the town and improving walking and cycling options in Leeston. In Malvern, keeping the rural character of Coalgate was mentioned as being important, and providing more medium density and large section options in Darfield and more housing options for Glentunnel were suggested. Sheffield residents wanted improved crossing points in the township and Springfield locals suggested providing additional tourist information. Deputy mayor Sarah Walters said district council staff were now working on gathering additional technical information and would look at that as well as community feedback to develop the draft plans.

Faringdon to get school BY TOM DOUDNEY

Rolleston’s Faringdon subdivision has been confirmed as the location of a new primary school to open in 2017. The plan to build another school was announced by the Government in April but the location had not been confirmed until now. Lemonwood Grove School will be the town’s fifth primary school and the third to open within three years, following Rolleston Christian School which opened this year and West Rolleston Primary School which is set to open next year. A high school, Rolleston College, will also open in 2017. Faringdon, a Hughes Developments project, has seen strong demand with more than 900 of the 1000 sections having sold during the last four years. During the next 10 years, another 500 homes may be added to the subdivision if an application for rezoning is accepted. Hughes Developments director Jake Hughes said if this went ahead it was expected there would eventually be up to 4000 people living in Faringdon. “A lot of our purchasers with Faringdon are young families, so [having a school close by] is exactly what they are looking for and they will see the benefits of being able to walk their kids to school and not having to cross any main roads.” Mr Hughes said discussions between the company and the Minis-

Mixed views on proposal to drop community board A proposal to scrap the Selwyn Central Community Board has received strong public opposition but also some heavyweight support. Former district council chief executive Paul Davey, a Rolleston resident, submitted in support of disestablishing the board. He also called for the Malvern Community Board, which is proposed to be retained, to go as well. The district council received 226 submissions on its proposed changes to representation in the district, most of which focused on the future of Selwyn’s two community boards. Almost all submissions from Selwyn Central ward residents advocated retaining the community board. West Melton resident Jenny Gilgenberg said the proposal was outrageous. “You are detonating our democratic rights and we won’t let this happen,” she said. However, Mr Davey, who stepped down in 2013, said community board funding could be better used for other purposes. “I continue to hold the view that community boards are a relic of the past, have been a source of ongoing political tension and division and have outlived their usefulness,” he said. “Disestablishing one community board and retaining an-

other serves only to introduce a further level of confusion regarding what role community boards should play in the fair and effective governance of the district as a whole.” Mr Davey said the district was well served by the many community, hall and reserve committees, together with various ratepayer and residents’ organisations which engaged directly with district councillors.

Aside from Mr Davey, those who submitted in support of getting rid of the Selwyn Central Community Board included current chairwoman Diane Chesmar, former district councillor Annette Foster and the Rolleston Residents Association. Community board members Alan French and Bruce Russell submitted in favour of retaining it, while Nicola Peacock did not put in a submission. Mr French said the board should be given more support by district councillors and more power. “The ratepayers have the right to full representation.” However, Ms Chesmar said the community had changed a

lot in the last five years. “I personally do not believe the community board is representative or in touch with our now diverse communities.” Rolleston Residents Association chairwoman Nicole Reid said the association supported the removal of the community board. “However, we are concerned regarding how the removal of [the community board] will impact our association and Rolleston.” What Selwyn Central ward residents said: Barry Armstrong, Rolleston: “The proposed changes ... are fine, except for the Selwyn Central Community Board. This has been the means through which the voice of the ratepayers could be heard.” Hillary Adamson, West Melton: “I wish for [the Selwyn Central Community Board] to stay as it is. These group of people are the voice of us and have done so much work around the community. As our township is growing I think we need them now more than ever.” William Desmond, West Melton: “I do not want the community board for Selwyn [Central] to finish, as they do a lot for the community. Without them we will have nothing.”

TRADITIONS CELEBRATED: Supriya John Roy, left, and Avneet Sahota, from the Lincoln University International Club, performed an Indian bhangra dance at the Lincoln Multicultural Festival on Saturday. The festival was organised by the Rotary Club of Lincoln and held at the Lincoln Event Centre to celebrate cultural diversity in Selwyn and Christchurch. Convener Surinder Tandon said the participation of ethnic communities and the migrant service groups was overwhelming and the festival was especially well-attended this year due to an exhibition of photographs of Mahatma Gandhi being held at the same time. Following a karakia by Ngai Tahu ethnic and migrants adviser Sally Pitama and a welcome by rotary club president Francoise Hurt, visitors were entertained with music and dance performances. The cultural groups represented countries including Bangladesh, China, India, South Korea, Macedonia, Nepal, Russia and Sri Lanka.

Show time at Ellesmere

In its 145th year, the Ellesmere A&P Show promises to keep things fresh by mixing in some new events along with the old favourites. The theme for this year’s show, to be held on Saturday, is soil, water and light due to 2015 being the international year of soil and light. Two new events on the programme will take place in the main ring straight after the Grand Parade. The first of these, Kids Kartz Racing, will see children racing ponies and carts. In the second new event, Young Farmers clubs from Christchurch, Dunsandel and Lincoln will face off in the Gumboot Challenge. The teams will compete in head-to-head battles based around every day farming activities. The show will again include the Farmlands MusterChef Competition, which will see teams of Ellesmere College students putting their culinary talents to the test in a cooking competition. Also making a return to the main ring is the Mounted Games display a fast paced, action packed discipline with riders and mounts displaying their fitness, training and skill. Another new addition to this year’s show will be the inclusion of a steer class in the beef cattle section to encourage more youth to the ring. Sheep entries are down this year, which organisers have put down to Canterbury’s climatic conditions over the last 12 months being less favourable for preparing them for show competition than normal. However, alpaca entries are up and the dairy cattle section has held firm in spite of farmers struggling with low

The shearing section will see a blade shearer take on a machine shearer to see who can de-fleece a sheep the fastest. The open grade is set to be a big attraction with a number of world class shearers set to attend. For the children there will be an array of sideshow attractions from the Ferris wheel, thrill rides, merry-gorounds, bouncy castles and an assortment of food stalls. This year’s show president is Irwell farmer Chris Tod who first joined the organising committee in 1997, after his previous involvement with stewarding the sheep section and traffic management. Mr Tod said he got involved because he liked seeing the tradition of a great show continue.

Principal to get college rolling Steve Saville started yesterday as principal of Rolleston College, set to open in 2017. He spoke to Tom Doudney about teachers who influenced him, the biggest challenge in opening a new school and the work he did in the war-torn Solomon Islands Did you have any particular teachers who strongly influenced you to want to be a teacher? Not really until I was in year 13 and I had an English teacher who was the first person who seemed to have the time to listen to me and encourage me to have a point of view and debate and discuss and share ideas and who challenged me. That was quite a different experience for me and it put me on the spot but enabled me to gain confidence. So I think that Mr Gelston at Horowhenua College in Levin was probably the first and only teacher (at that point) who had really inspired me. Actually, in the same year, the principal of the school, Fraser Campbell, had a huge impact on me. He had an amazing energy and would take over our history class and get really excited about what we were studying. His love of learning was very powerful. At one point in your career you had a stint advising the teacher

training services in the Solomon Islands. How did that come about? That was only for a couple of weeks about 12 years ago, just after their civil war. During that time the training college there had ground to a halt, as had most systems around Honiara, and I went over to help get it back up and running. It would have been about nine years ago now. What was that like? It was pretty hard. I guess what I remember was that the people I was working with, the educators, were still so passionate about education and getting the college back up and running – but their stories were horrific. What impressed me was that their spirit was unbroken and I wasn’t fully aware of the extent of the trauma until I got over there. It was a humbling experience – they didn’t have much but they would share their food and all the rest of it. At the hotel I was staying in,

only one wing was open, the rest was all burnt out from the riots and it still wasn’t a place where you would go out at night.

What were some of the more harrowing sights you saw while you were over there? Burnt out buildings, burnt out

streets, just walking down the street with people and they would describe where a person had been killed in broad daylight. Also the poverty. It wasn’t the first time I had been to a very poor country but it wasn’t what I expected on a Pacific Island. I had travelled through Burma and places like that years ago so I was aware of poverty. What lead you to visit Burma? When my wife and I were younger we tended to do a lot of travelling. We went across the Soviet Union from one side to the other. We didn’t really have a plan, we just travelled. When were you in the Soviet Union? About 1982 to be honest, it was still under communist control and we sailed across the Sea of Japan to the east of the country and popped out at Finland a few weeks later. What was that experience like? It was great. It wasn’t a very open country so having conversations with people wasn’t easy. It was hard going through Siberia because it was still pretty barren and there were quite a lot of restrictions on where we could and couldn’t go. The nearer we got to the European side, around Moscow and Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg), the more fun it got and the less of a challenge it became.

from scratch With all the tension between east and west back then, did you find there was much distrust directed you as westerners? They weren’t really that interested in us. They might have wanted to trade for my jacket or something like that, because there wasn’t a lot of western clothing around, but once I wasn’t prepared to take off my jacket in a snow storm, they kind of lost interest. In your career you’ve been involved in teaching and engaging with students directly, as well as the management and research side of things. Which do you prefer? You get involved with education to work with young people so everything you do that isn’t involved with that is only to give you more skills to go back and be more effective working with young people. Nothing matches a good day in the classroom. You’ve done some work in the past on developing ‘culturally responsive’ classrooms. What does this mean? Basically the project was looking at how teachers position themselves in the classroom, not physically but philosophically, to see themselves as people who can make a difference as opposed

to people who only have the students for a limited period of time. It was about making teachers believe in their agency and looking at how to develop positive relationships with the students, the theory being that for most people, in particular Maori students, it’s difficult to learn unless there is a strong relationship there. Why Maori students in particular? I think it’s largely a cultural thing, whereby Europeans tend to be quite competitive and Maori tend to be quite collaborative and therefore work better in more of a team situation. These are huge generalisations which are only useful in general terms. The reason for looking at Maori education was because they were lagging behind in the achievement rates and there was no need for that to be the case. You say you are committed to a learner centred sort of education. What does that mean? It means allowing the students to take more control and ownership of their learning as opposed to the teacher at the front dictating and telling students what they need to know. It’s more about the students

needs, what questions do they have and developing their strengths and looking at their weaknesses, as opposed to one size fits all. Are kids well placed to take that sort of control of their learning? Yes, definitely, no doubt about it at all. Look at how babies and preschoolers learn. They learn by doing things and solving problems. What are you hobbies and interests outside of work? Spending time with my family is very important to me. Also I am a compulsive doodler – I like drawing and artwork. Creative and formal writing and reading. With my wife being a food technology teacher, we enjoy good food as well. What’s going to be the biggest challenge when it comes to starting a new school from scratch? The big challenge is to build up a learning environment where all the students find their passion and their purpose for life. The secondary one is creating a modern learning environment where we realise we are not just dealing with content but developing the critical skills of how young people use that knowledge.

REGENERATION: A native tree planting day was held at Rolleston Christian School earlier this year.

Food forest for school BY TOM DOUDNEY Rolleston Christian School is soon to transform part of its grounds into a ‘food forest’. Having already planted 350 native trees earlier this year, the school will set aside more space for the new project. A food forest is a diverse stand of trees and other plants designed to produce an abundance of food while adhering to principles of sustainability. It is expected to take shape over several years. Principal Liz Horn said the school was keen on getting the children involved in active, handson learning activities. “We had someone from Southern Woods come and talk to the kids about what they would be able to plant and the kids have started their vision of what they would like to see in their food forest,” she said. A ‘food immersion day’ saw the children making different types of food, based on sorts of things they would be able to grow, in order to spark their ideas. The children also had another talk from Robert and Robyn Guy-

Ms Horn said the project fit in with the Enviroschools programme, which the school joined when it opened this year. The idea had come from one of the children’s parents.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT: Last year’s Hororata Spring Fair was a success in spite of wet weather.

All the fun of the fair at Hororata Parish This year’s Hororata Parish Spring Fair will see a return to some traditional country events on Labour Day. Fair chairwoman Lucy Cookson said organisers had spent some time looking at what they could add to this year’s event. “We are bringing back the traditional children’s races like sack races and egg and spoon races and gumboot throwing. There will be heaps of great prizes and lots of fun to be had.” The fair will feature market stalls offering a range of products and produce, while the parish will run a white elephant sale which is

expected to fill the stables at the Hororata Domain. A regular favourite of the day is the country auction. “This year we have arranged for a number of young performers to provide entertainment at the event,” Mrs Cookson said. “This will be great for the fair visitors but also gives some people with amazing talent in our community the chance to showcase what they can do.” Primary aged children can show their artistic side with the creative kids competition. The categories this year will be flower power, Lego creation, cup cake bake and

decorate and a colouring-in competition. “Last year we had a fabulous turn out in spite of being a very wet day,” Mrs Cookson said. “There is plenty of shelter for rain or sun. Hopefully, the rain stays away this year but no matter the weather, the event will still go ahead.” The fair is the biggest fundraiser for the Hororata Parish. •The Hororata Parish Spring Fair will be held at the Hororata Domain, Labour Day, from 9.30am to 2pm. Entry is free. For more information visit www.hororataparish.co.nz

GRASSROOTS SPORT

Back-to-back victories for Springston rider Springston teenager Steffi Whittaker’s unbelievable start to the season has continued, snaring back-to-back victories in the Telford junior rider series and pony mini prix at the Southern A&P Show in Waimate over the weekend. Returning to the scene of her first junior rider victory two weeks ago, Whittaker again proved too strong. There were 10 riders starting the class, with seven combinations including Whittaker going through to the jumpoff against the clock. Darfield’s Courtney Townsend on Suzy Fog set the early pace jumping clear in a time of 41.5sec. New combo Rohan Tennekoon

(West Melton) on Double J Rumours played it safe jumping clean but finished slower, while Jamiee Bird and Wenrose Vertigo smashed the time, but sadly paid for it with two rails down. Out next, Whittaker and Ngahiwi Cruise flew round clear in a speedy 39.75 to take the win, with Townsend second, and Tennekoon third. Whittaker was also to the fore in the pony mini prix, scoring an easy victory aboard Moonlight Glow. Rose Alfeld, of Leeston, continued her strong run of form winning the Canterbury Equestrian young rider with My Super Nova, while the Caledonian Holdings amateur was won by Angela

Ruddenklau on Starlight Donaldo. West Melton rider Emily Cammock’s winning run has also continued, picking up the quinella in the CNC3* at Eventing Canterbury’s oneday horse trial at the NEC McLeans Island on Sunday. The class was reduced to just three starters with the withdrawal of Giles Gormack (Amberley) and Lucero because of a stone bruise, but true to form, Cammock put up a dominant performance. Little separated her two rides at the end of the dressage phase, sitting well clear of Susannah Stewart on Cowboy, who were making a return to this level after a long lay-off.

UP AND OVER: Burnham rider Molly BuistBrown, 15, won the 1.25m, 1.10m speed horse and 1.05m championship classes at the recent South Canterbury-North Otago Equestrian Sports New Zealand Show Jumping event in Waimate. Molly is the reigning national show jumping champion and has been named in the New Zealand team to head to China for a two-day event next month. In the pony grand prix, Molly was fourth and her younger sister Rosa, 13, finished fifth in her first time entering the class. Rosa tasted further success on the day, winning the 1.10m speed pony class.

ain and discomfort affects our lifestyle, sleep patterns and emotional state. Emily Taylor is classically trained with a degree in acupuncture. She often combines the traditional Eastern medicine of acupuncture plus Craniosacral Therapy to help resolve pain, balance the body and encourage a positive state of health. “Modern acupuncture covers many aspects of health ranging from trauma and musculoskeletal injuries through to migraines and recovery from disease or post-operation,” says Emily. While some people may be concerned at the use of needles, Emily assures that acupuncture is a gentle and effective treatment that can help many health complaints. While the initial visit may bring relief, a series of treatments is recommended so the body builds a foundation for long-term pain recovery. “Craniosacral Therapy uses light therapeutic touch to relieve tension and soft tissue

restrictions in the central nervous system making it ideal for people with over-sensitive muscles and nerve endings. Balancing the body’s delicate craniosacral system can help bring about healing at all levels: physical, mental and emotional.” Working in the Selwyn area for the last five years, Emily treats aCC and private patients at Lincoln and Halswell.

BREAKTHROUGH: James Parsons celebrates taking a vital Richmond wicket.

Bowlers key to Halswell win The Halswell senior A were impressive in completing a 10-wicket rout against Richmond at Halswell domain on Saturday. Richmond were 80 behind on the first innings and although they tried to bat patiently could not survive the dominant Halswell bowling attack. With wickets falling regularly, none of the Richmond batsmen could build any partnerships and they were bowled out for 131. For Halswell, the star with the ball was George Earl who produced the outstanding figures of 5-14.

Leighton Johnston bowled unchanged from one end going at two runs an over, while James Parsons bowled well, ending with good figures of 3-34. Chasing 51 runs for victory, Halswell did it with ease, not losing a wicket to gain three bonus points. George Earl was 28 not out and Matt McClintock finished on 15 not out. Other results: Halswell 3a 175 lost to Burnside 176-8 Halswell 3b 175-6 beat Lancaster Park 125 Halswell 20/20 157 lost to Raiders 168

Score chased down The Leeston-Southbridge cricket team were on the wrong end of a record-breaking partnership in losing to Sefton at Leeston Park on Saturday. Sefton’s Matt Rowe and Lance Taylor put on 167 for the third wicket to take the match away from the home side. Batting first, Leeston-Southbridge had posted 238/8, Ben Donkers top scoring with a 44ball 77 which included six 6s. Toby Doyle also scored a half-century for the home side. Sefton chased the score down with four wickets and 15 balls to spare thanks to Rowe and Taylor’s partnership. They surpassed the previous record of 163 posted by Brendon Donkers and Nathan Jones 20 years ago. Rowe scored 118 in 99 balls and Taylor finished with 52. Sefton’s Tim Field was the best

of the bowlers, snaring 3-43. South Malvern had a game to forget losing to Weedons by 205 runs. Weedons batted first and racked up 280/9 in their 45 overs. Trent Boyle was dismissed eight runs short of a century for 92 while Mike Kingston scored 70. It was a good recovery from Weedons who were 56/4 early in their innings. In reply South Malvern were never in the hunt, falling to 41/8 before being all out for 75 in the 15th over. George Redpath was the bowler who did the damage for Weedons, taking 6-31. The final match of round two was an easy victory to Lincoln over Greendale with Jeremy Benton starring with bat and ball. Greendale batted first and were skittled for 107. Lincoln’s young bowlers, Benton and Brendan Scland-

ers took three wickets each. Lincoln chased the target down inside 25 overs with loss of only one wicket. Benton finished on 44 not out and Hugh Patterson chipped in with 33 not out to guide Lincoln home. Results: Leeston/Southbridge 238/8 (B Donkers 77, T Doyle 58) lost to Sefton 242/6 (M Rowe 118, L Taylor 52; T Field 3/43) by four wickets at Leeston. Southbrook 265/6 (S Stewart 129, A Robinson 74; A Mitchell 3/52) beat Oxford 261/9 (P Fulton 171; S Stewart 4/61, D Power 3/42) by four runs at Rangiora. Weedons 280/9 (T Boyle 92, M Kingston 70, D Nightingale 49; K Innes 4/48) beat South Malvern 75 (J Chapman 27*; G Redpath 6/31) by 205 runs at Weedons at Glentunnel. Greendale 107 (T Dalley 26; B Sclanders 3/5, J Benton 3/37) lost to Lincoln 108/1 (J Benton 44*,

Loss for Canterbury Country Canterbury Country produced an improved effort against the Christchurch Red in Rangiora on Sunday but still lost the match convincingly. In spite of a good 89 from Peter Fulton and a number of useful efforts, their total of 255 looked short on a very good Mainpower

Oval wicket. Jeff Case and Joel Abraham then hammered that home for Christchurch Red with a strong 164-run partnership for the second wicket effectively sealing the match. Case reached his century in 120 balls with a disciplined innings.

Results: Canterbury Country 255/9: P Fulton 89 (107), M Rowe 29 (28), A Robertson 27 (16), J Benton 26no (25), H Shipley 24 (39), S Stewart 21 (18), L Van Beek 3/43 (10), R McCone 2/48 (10) lost to Metro Red 260/3 (47.1 overs): J Case 109 (130), J Abraham 70 (90).

Teen’s mountain bike blitz BY TOM DOUDNEY

TRYING IT OUT: Several people attended a recent have-a-go day at the Kirwee Bowling Club.

Budding bowlers have a go

Gale force wind warnings may have caused some concern for the organisers of Kirwee Bowling Club’s recent have-a-go day, but they were committed to staging the event – come what may. To everyone’s surprise the strong winds of the morning completely disappeared by the time the club opened its doors to its visitors, making for perfect conditions for bowling. Club president John Tate

r o o d t u O

said it was pleasing to have more than a dozen people, ranging from children to retirees, turn up to try their hand. “You never know how many people you’re going to get to these things,” he said. Willing club members such as coach Maureen Robertson explained the rudiments of the game to the beginners and much effort was put in to mastering the moves. Many even persevered

once the nor’wester returned, until the flying dust became too much and everyone retired to the clubhouse to relax. Bowls Canterbury has provided the club with a promotional trailer which was parked on Courtenay Rd to help attract attention to the event. The trailer is packed with bowls gear and can be hired for parties, corporate events, holiday programmes and other occasions.

Coalgate teenager Ethan Rose has started the new mountain biking season by blitzing all other riders in his age group at a major tournament. Ethan, 12, was the under 13 champion at the South Island Secondary School Mountain Biking Championships in Dunedin on a weather-affected weekend. The first race and the biggest one for Ethan was the cross-country, which saw the under 15s, under 14s and under 13s sharing a track which was extremely muddy after a lot of rain the day before. Being in the under 13s age group, Ethan had to start at the back of the pack with more than 30 riders in front of him but was the third to cross the finish line, with only two under 15 riders ahead of them. He recorded the fastest final lap time (10min, 15sec) of all the riders, despite crashing his bike at one point. This saw him finish just 18sec behind second place, yet more than 11min ahead of his nearest under 13 competitor.

AIRBORNE: Ethan Rose was streets ahead of the competition in his under 13 age group at the South Island Secondary School Mountain Biking Championships. Ethan said he was very happy with his ride but would liked to have started alongside the top riders to push for the overall win. The next day, he posted the fastest under 13s time by 24sec in the qualifying run for the downhill event. However, the race was cancelled due to strong winds, with his result in the quali-

fying run meaning he was awarded victory. The next race, the Super D, was also cancelled, and Ethan was named overall under 13s champion. Ethan’s next race will be the Giant 12-hour day/ night mountain bike race at McLeans Island on Saturday as part of the Moffatts Flower Company Ltd team.

Q

Where does all the steam go?

A

That’s an easy one. There isn’t any! Steam is only created when you mix warm air with cold air. Showerdome is the barrier between those two air masses, which means no steam in your shower or bathroom.

Selwyn celebrates

Indian culture at Diwali

Help develop a guide for young people to Selwyn The Selwyn Youth Council needs your help to find the best places, spaces and things for young people to do in Selwyn. They are developing a guide to be used by young people visiting and living in Selwyn called the Insider’s Guide to Selwyn. The guide will have suggestions on great places to eat, parks to visit, skateparks, walks, and other things to do. You can share your ideas and vote for your favourite suggestions on Facebook by searching for ‘Insider's Guide to Selwyn.’ If the Youth Council uses your idea in the guide you will go into a draw to win a $100 voucher of your choice.

Watch out for new kea crossing A new kea crossing is now operating on Rolleston Drive between Norman Kirk Drive and Dryden Avenue. We invite you to join with others in our community to celebrate Indian culture on Saturday 31 October. A celebration is planned from 4.30-8.30pm by the Lincoln Library to mark Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights. This free event will include Indian food stalls where you can experience a range of Indian foods, curries, desserts and sweets. There will also be dance performances, traditional Indian clothing displays and crafts to participate in such as hand painting, diya lamp painting and rangoli design works. The Laboratory will also have light decorations and Indian themed food on offer. This is a great event for families and everyone is welcome. If you haven’t tried traditional Indian food or encountered Indian culture before this is a great way to experience its dazzling colours, tastes and sounds. The event is being organised by Selwyn District Council, Colours of India New Zealand and the Selwyn Arts Trust.

Don’t let a fire reignite

The crossing is being operated by Rolleston School parents with support from Rolleston School and the Council. Kea crossings are used by many New Zealand schools and allow school children to have the right of way to cross a road when lollipop barriers are operating to stop traffic. The Rolleston Drive kea crossing will operate at approximately 8.30-9am and 3-3.30pm Monday-Friday during school terms. If you travel on Rolleston Drive at these times you need to slow down and be ready to stop if lollipop barriers are extended across the lane. At other times of the day when the school is not operating the crossing, pedestrians need to give way to traffic if crossing the road at this crossing point, as they do now. Speed activated signs are also operating on Rolleston Drive near the crossing point to let motorists know their speed and encourage them to slow down if they are over the speed limit.

The East Coast of New Zealand (including Selwyn) has recently been experiencing extremely windy and hot conditions. A number of fires have occurred when previously lit rubbish or pile fires reignited. If you light a fire it is your responsibility to ensure it has been fully extinguished. If you are unsure if a fire is fully extinguished you should carefully check underneath any debri to see if any embers or heat still exists and douse this well with water or bury the embers. Strong nor’ west winds are common in spring so people need to check current and future weather conditions carefully before lighting outdoor fires. The plains area of Selwyn are currently in an open fire season so outdoor fires are permitted but all safety precautions should be taken (see www.selwyn.govt.nz/fire for advice). You should not light outdoor fires if windy conditions are forecast. Given the current unsettled conditions, the Council has suspended fire permits for the hill and high country until further notice. It is a breach of the Council’s Fire Bylaw to light a fire in conditions which may cause a fire to spread. Anyone who ignores these rules may be liable for the costs of fighting a fire and any damage from it.

Strong winds and warm days elevate the fire risk. To reduce the risk of a fire starting or spreading on your property you can: · create a 10 metre clear space around your house to act as a fire break. Keep this area green and remove trees, branches, shrubs and long grass · check that any trees on your property are at least three metres from power lines. Power lines touching trees can cause fires and power outages. For advice on who can safely trim trees phone Orion on 0800 363 9898 · store firewood and other flammable materials away from your house · clear your property of rubbish piles and remove leaves from gutters · regularly check that machinery is in good working order · keep a garden hose connected which can reach around your house · check that the entrance to your property or paddocks is at least four metres high and four metres wide to allow emergency vehicles access if needed To report a fire call 111.

Road repairs are also planned to Springs, Tancreds, Barnes and McDrurys Roads, with stop and go signs being used by contractors to control traffic. Speed restrictions apply while road works on Cowans, Burts and Homebush Road take place.

Selwyn celebrates

Indian culture at Diwali

Help develop a guide for young people to Selwyn The Selwyn Youth Council needs your help to find the best places, spaces and things for young people to do in Selwyn. They are developing a guide to be used by young people visiting and living in Selwyn called the Insider’s Guide to Selwyn. The guide will have suggestions on great places to eat, parks to visit, skateparks, walks, and other things to do. You can share your ideas and vote for your favourite suggestions on Facebook by searching for ‘Insider's Guide to Selwyn.’ If the Youth Council uses your idea in the guide you will go into a draw to win a $100 voucher of your choice.

Watch out for new kea crossing A new kea crossing is now operating on Rolleston Drive between Norman Kirk Drive and Dryden Avenue. We invite you to join with others in our community to celebrate Indian culture on Saturday 31 October. A celebration is planned from 4.30-8.30pm by the Lincoln Library to mark Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights. This free event will include Indian food stalls where you can experience a range of Indian foods, curries, desserts and sweets. There will also be dance performances, traditional Indian clothing displays and crafts to participate in such as hand painting, diya lamp painting and rangoli design works. The Laboratory will also have light decorations and Indian themed food on offer. This is a great event for families and everyone is welcome. If you haven’t tried traditional Indian food or encountered Indian culture before this is a great way to experience its dazzling colours, tastes and sounds. The event is being organised by Selwyn District Council, Colours of India New Zealand and the Selwyn Arts Trust.

Don’t let a fire reignite

The crossing is being operated by Rolleston School parents with support from Rolleston School and the Council. Kea crossings are used by many New Zealand schools and allow school children to have the right of way to cross a road when lollipop barriers are operating to stop traffic. The Rolleston Drive kea crossing will operate at approximately 8.30-9am and 3-3.30pm Monday-Friday during school terms. If you travel on Rolleston Drive at these times you need to slow down and be ready to stop if lollipop barriers are extended across the lane. At other times of the day when the school is not operating the crossing, pedestrians need to give way to traffic if crossing the road at this crossing point, as they do now. Speed activated signs are also operating on Rolleston Drive near the crossing point to let motorists know their speed and encourage them to slow down if they are over the speed limit.

The East Coast of New Zealand (including Selwyn) has recently been experiencing extremely windy and hot conditions. A number of fires have occurred when previously lit rubbish or pile fires reignited. If you light a fire it is your responsibility to ensure it has been fully extinguished. If you are unsure if a fire is fully extinguished you should carefully check underneath any debri to see if any embers or heat still exists and douse this well with water or bury the embers. Strong nor’ west winds are common in spring so people need to check current and future weather conditions carefully before lighting outdoor fires. The plains area of Selwyn are currently in an open fire season so outdoor fires are permitted but all safety precautions should be taken (see www.selwyn.govt.nz/fire for advice). You should not light outdoor fires if windy conditions are forecast. Given the current unsettled conditions, the Council has suspended fire permits for the hill and high country until further notice. It is a breach of the Council’s Fire Bylaw to light a fire in conditions which may cause a fire to spread. Anyone who ignores these rules may be liable for the costs of fighting a fire and any damage from it.

Strong winds and warm days elevate the fire risk. To reduce the risk of a fire starting or spreading on your property you can: · create a 10 metre clear space around your house to act as a fire break. Keep this area green and remove trees, branches, shrubs and long grass · check that any trees on your property are at least three metres from power lines. Power lines touching trees can cause fires and power outages. For advice on who can safely trim trees phone Orion on 0800 363 9898 · store firewood and other flammable materials away from your house · clear your property of rubbish piles and remove leaves from gutters · regularly check that machinery is in good working order · keep a garden hose connected which can reach around your house · check that the entrance to your property or paddocks is at least four metres high and four metres wide to allow emergency vehicles access if needed To report a fire call 111.

GARDENING

What’s the buzz? Ask the bees Veronica Armstrong explains the importance of a bee’s buzz when it comes to the pollination of certain plants.

THE SOUND of bees buzzing in the garden is such a common summer sound. But some bees use buzzing for a very special purpose – to get pollen from flowers! We have all seen bees flying from flower to flower, covered in pollen and pollinating the flowers as they go. Most flowers have anthers that split open and the pollen spills out. Any insects, such as bees, that brush against these anthers will pick up some pollen easily. When the bee moves to another flower of the same species, it carries the pollen with it and crosspollinates the flower. The pollen can also be blown off the anthers by the wind and if it lands on another flower of the same species, that flower will be cross-pollinated, too. But some flowers are trickier. They keep their pollen inside their anthers. These anthers have a small hole at the tip and need to be shaken, like a pepper pot, to release the precious pollen. (These are called poricidal anthers.) About eight per cent of the world’s plants, about 20,000 species, have these anthers.

Some fruits and vegetables such as these tomatoes also depend on buzz pollination.

Bumblebees are some of the bee species that carry out buzz pollination.

Many flowers in the Ericaceae family, ornamentals such as azaleas and rhododendrons, dianella, our New Zealand flax lily and edibles such as tomatoes, eggplants, chilli peppers, potatoes, as well as blueberries, cranberries and kiwifruit all have these anthers. They probably evolved this method of storing pollen to prevent pollen-loss to insects that may not pollinate their flowers and to regulate the pollen dispensing, to ensure a better pollination rate. Luckily for these flowers, some bees have found a clever way to extract this pollen from the anthers: they buzz it out by ‘buzz pollination’! The bees grab hold of the anthers with their mandibles (jaws) and legs,

and rapidly vibrate their flight muscles, without moving their wings, hundreds of times a second. This intense vibration is at just the right frequency to shake the pollen grains loose from the anthers and they are released in a cloud. The bee has to hold on or the strong vibrations could bounce it right off the flower. The buzz vibration is at a different frequency from the regular buzzing that the bees make. I am planning to listen out for this next summer when the bees are back in the garden to see if I can hear the difference. Once the pollen has been released from the anthers, it may land on the sticky stigma and self-fertilise the flower, but often, the pollen covers the bee. It

grooms the pollen grains into special sacs it has on its back legs for transport. When the bee visits the next flower, the pollen rubs off and pollinates it. Some pollen is carried back to the hive to feed the bee larvae. In the dance of evolution, plants have changed the shape of their pollen tubes so that even harder buzzing can only release some of the pollen, not all of it at once. This ensures the bee can’t exhaust the plant’s complete supply of pollen and some is left for other visiting bees. Rather than depending on just one pollinator, which may or may not visit the right flower, no precious pollen is wasted and more crosspollination may occur.

Not all bees are able to buzz pollinate. Bumblebees, carpenter bees and Australian bluebanded bees are some that can. Honeybees cannot. The flowers that need to be buzz-pollinated do not produce nectar that honeybees like. They only produce protein-rich pollen, favoured by bumblebees and the other buzz-pollinators. Therefore honeybees are not the natural pollinators of these flowers and so have no need to buzz out the pollen. For years, in commercial greenhouses, tomatoes were hand-pollinated using electrical vibrators called “Electric bee”. Who needs these when clever bumblebees have evolved just the right buzz to do the job?

gardening without guesswork Question:

Answer:

Some of the plants in our garden have been frosted this winter, including pohutukawas and ratas. We are not sure whether to trim these plants back a bit, leave them to rejuvenate/ regenerate, or replace them with other plants. What would be your advice please? We live in Lincoln, Canterbury. Winter can certainly take its toll on our beloved plants. We

would suggest that you treat your frosted plants by waiting until the buds below the damaged tips have started to grow back and then prune them back to good sound stems. For pohutukawas and ratas, this should be evident by the middle of November

Parsley with flair and personality By Tod Palenski

YOU’D PROBABLY have to be stuck under a culinary rock to not be aware of flat leaf parsley these days. But it wasn’t too long ago that when someone said parsley, people thought of the curly variety. It’s good to know we’ve moved on from these times and now not only are we aware that parsley can be used for more than just a garnish, we also know there are two types available for adding flavour. I’m a big fan of having both varieties in my garden. While I tend to use them interchangeably, it’s good to know that when I need it I have on hand some parsley with personality – as I like to call flat leaf parsley. Also known as Italian parsley, I think flat leaf has a stronger flavour than the curly kind. Although, in saying that the taste of both may change depending on where your parsley is planted and how old it is. It’s also good to know that pars-

ZEST: Flat leaf parsley (right), has a stronger flavour than its curly cousin on the left. ley in general is a great source of vitamins K, A and C and is meant to have other beneficial characteristics including the ability to be a breath freshener! Once you’ve got your seedlings look for a sunny, well-drained spot in your herb or vege garden to plant. Parsley will grow well in just about anything so don’t forget options like pots or hanging baskets. The trick with parsley is to eat

it as its ready and use it before it goes to seed. To ensure a steady supply, stagger your planting. That means every few weeks or couple of months plant another parsley seedling. As one reaches its end the other will be ready to plunder. And don’t forget, when you’re using your parsley with personality for more than just a garnish, the stems are also pretty tasty.

Natural ways to beat bugs, beautify hair

We’re for the

World

Jacqui from Blockhouse Bay was rummaging around recently and came across a bunch of old Friends of the Home newsletters. They dated back to 1976, but since good oily rag ideas never age, this week we thought we would reproduce some of the tips from those newsletters. We’ll also be progressively posting them on the website. Here are some tips to keep bugs away: ■ Beetles: Grow geranium plants near the source of entry. Sprinkle cupboards, etc, with tansy and geranium leaves. ■ Flies and mosquitoes: A pot of basil in the room will keep it free from flies. ■ Fleas: Dry fennel leaves and place them under rugs,

mint or lemon balm. All parts of the sunflower plant make excellent compost (and birds love the seeds), so they are not only a fun plant to have but useful for soil health. ■ In the vegetable garden: Banana skins are high in potash. Scatter chopped skins around tomatoes, capsicums, eggplants and cover with soil or compost. ■ Here’s a night cream recipe: Beat together 3 tablespoons wheatgerm oil, 3 tablespoons sesame oil, and 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar. ■ How to dry apples or pears: Peel the fruit, cut into quarters and core. Thread onto a cotton string. Hang outside in the sun or over the stove to dry. Friends of the Home has tips for

NOW OPEN!

Indian dining experience now open in Prebbleton A fter completing an agricultural doctorate in India, Gurmeet Singh came to New Zealand in 2005, returning a year later to marry Davinder Kaur. He worked in farming in Dunsandel and Rakaia before they both settled in Selwyn where they now live with their two boys. Three years ago, these self-described ‘foodies’ started an Indian takeaway outlet in Prebbleton and recently they opened an Indian restaurant next door. “We love to cook Indian food,” enthuses Gurmeet, which is not surprising considering both their families are in the hospitality industry in India. “Customers were telling us that our takeaways are high quality in ingredients, flavours and presentation. They were asking for a dining experience where they could eat in a relaxed atmosphere so when the shop next door became available we decided it was time to take that next step,” explains Davinder. Offering unique food is the trademark of Veenuz. All ingredients are fresh and meals can be adapted

ADVERTORIAL

to a customer’s dietary needs yet the food is still competitively priced.

“We use authentic spices which are sometimes lacking elsewhere,” explains Gurmeet. “It’s also about how you give the food. The flavours, aroma, presentation and smile on the faces of those serving are important.” Their restaurant menu, while similar to Veenuz’ takeaway menu, has more options such as Indian street food and traditional desserts bringing flavour and atmosphere to the restaurant which has both a full and BYO license. As a quality specialist with nearly 9 years’ experience working for a major supermarket chain, Davinder has a strong focus on quality control and staff training.

“We like to give our customers the best so they are totally satisfied. We emphasise quality fresh food, customer enjoyment and we stand by our food,” explains Davinder.

Gurmeet Singh (Gary) & Davinder Kaur (Veenu)

“We serve food that we’d eat ourselves and like to think there’ll be leftovers for the snack,” adds Gurmeet who describes Davinder as his motivation while admitting that they both work hard and want to build a good future for their family. With Gurmeet and Davinder’s attention to detail and emphasis on quality food made from fresh ingredients and authentic spices, the new Veenuz Indian D’zire restaurant is likely to thrill the most discerning diner. • Veenuz Indian D’zire restaurant is located at shop 2, 575 Springs Road, Prebbleton right next door to Gurmeet and Davinder’s takeaway store of the same name. For bookings and enquiries give Gurmeet (Gary) a call on 03 344 5554. The Restaurant will be open for dinner, Tues – Sun 4.30 – 9pm and available for Corporate functions/ work parties in the afternoon.

The 145th Ellesmere A&P Show

October 17, 2015

THE 145th

ELLESMERE A & P SHOW

T

he 145th annual Ellesmere A & P Show will be on this Saturday. The theme this year is Soil, Water and Light, lining up with the International Year of Soil and Light, which highlights the contribution of light to healthy soil and a balanced ecosystem. Ellesmere’s theme also notes the need for water for prosperous growth.

The committee and sub-committee of the Ellesmere Agricultural and Pastoral Association have worked hard over the last year to ensure an efficiently-run show, and it promises to be more impressive than ever, making for a great day out. There will be new events and old favourites to entertain the crowd, along with displays and competitions from an array of

producers, businesses and creators from Ellesmere and beyond. Show President this year is local Irwell farmer Chris Tod. “I became involved in the show because I wanted to support the tradition of this great event,” says Chris, who, with wife Sharon and their three children, has a farming focus on running ewes,

fattening lambs and growing process crops. Chris joined the committee in 1997 working at the grassroots as steward in the sheep section and assisting with traffic management. He wants the Ellesmere Show to be an important day on the calendar, as the first show of the season held on a great spring day.

Bright future for students at

Aoraki Polytechnic

Forward-focused and dynamic learning is all part of studying at Aoraki Polytechnic.

Stuffed pork loin chops

Chops have always been a Kiwi staple – they’re very versatile and can be coated, stuffed or braised, depending on the cut. Ingredients 3 Tbsp Olive oil 2 Bacon rashers ½ Onion ½ cup Breadcrumbs 1 Tbsp Sage ½ cup Green apple 1 to taste Salt & freshly ground pepper 2 Tbsp Natural yoghurt 4 Pork loin Directions

Preheat oven to 180 deg C. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a small pan and gently cook bacon and garlic until tender. Transfer finely chopped bacon rahers and finely chopped onion to a bowl and mix with fresh breadcrumbs, finely chopped sage, salt and pepper, grated green apple (skin on) and just enough yoghurt to loosely bind the stuffing together. Take a sharp knife and make an incision in each pork loin chops, about 3cm long along the bone. Heat a frying pan over a high heat with 2 tbs olive oil and quickly brown the chops on both sides. Transfer to a baking dish and continue to cook for 20 minutes or until chops are cooked through.

Asian green pesto barbecue chicken thighs

A quick and simple chicken dish – marinate in an asian pesto of your choice for twenty minutes, then cook for twenty minutes. Easy! Ingredients 3 Tbsp Pesto, Asian green pesto 500g Chicken thighs, skin on. 2 Tbsp Soy sauce 1 Tbsp Brown sugar Directions Combine the pesto, soy sauce and brown sugar, add chicken thighs and marinate for 20 minutes or longer if you have the time. Barbecue the chicken skin side-down for 10 minutes, then turn and continue to cook until the juices run clear. Alternatively, roast the thighs in a hot oven for about 20 minutes. Serve with a salad and crusty bread.

Shaved asparagus salad Serves 4 A crunchy raw salad is an easy way to get a super-healthy asparagus hit. I love the visual simplicity of this dish, it’s one of those recipes you can keep changing and creating to go with any meal. A side dish for lunch or dinner, sprinkled with your favourite fresh herbs or toasted nuts; or served alongside grilled seafood, meat or vegetables. Ingredients 24 Asparagus spears, thick 1 cup Mixed salad leaves

E N R O L 100 g Feta 2 Tbsp Olive oil 1 Tbsp Red wine vinegar Directions Use a peeler to shave the asparagus, starting at the tip and peeling towards the woody base. Discard the woody base. Gently place shaved asparagus in a salad bowl. Dress with mesclun leaves then arrange sliced feta on top. Pour over olive oil and vinegar just before serving, season with salt and pepper to taste.

New qualifications for 2016

C

PIT will be offering students a number of new qualifications in 2016, in response to industry demand and the development of New Zealand certificates and diplomas. Science The New Zealand  Certificate and Diplomas in Applied Science reflect a growing demand for science-based skills in New Zealand. The new programmes are designed to staircase people into a variety of careers that require graduates to think scientifically and analytically in example of a growing industry in Canterbury where science-based skills are in demand. For the  New Zealand Animal Management and Veterinary Nursing qualifications (Levels 4, 5 and 6), industry demand has called for a new focus in training. At Level 4, the programme targets  people who want a career working with animals in the welfare, boarding and pet shop areas. Students who intend to train to be a veterinary nurse  assistant  can enter the certificate at Level 5, and later choose to move onto Level 6 to gain their full New Zealand Diploma in Veterinary Nursing qualification. This may soon be required for national registration as a veterinary nurse.  Languages Samoan is the third most commonly spoken

language in New Zealand after English and Maori. The Certificate in Samoan Language (Training Scheme)  recognises  this increasing community need for advanced proficiency in the language. Business In response to industry demand, the Bachelor of Applied Management  programme  has three new majors and associated graduate diplomas, which are pending in New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) approval. These include specialisations in personal financial planning, retail management and supply chain and logistics. Creative Arts The creative industries recognise that design skills are essential for New Zealand’s economic and cultural future, and this is reflected in the graduate profile of the Bachelor of Design’s new specialisations. Pending  NZQA approval, the move from diploma to degree level study in photography and fashion technology will extend students’ practical skills while also exposing them to the academic aspect of creative practices. Employers will benefit from having graduates who have more depth in their portfolios. For more information regarding the new qualifications, check out the website www.cpit.ac.nz/new-qualifications.

MOTORING

Toyota Camry to bow out in style LIKE ALL automobile manufacturing facilities in Australia, Toyota will bow out in 2017. However, it will go out in style, a new Camry is rolling off the Altona production line and it is a lot more than just a facelift, the new model has a fresh body style, although it still sits on pretty much the same floorpan and mechanicals. According to Toyota, every panel on the Camry is new except for the roof, it is more rounded and less chunky than before, and is available here in New Zealand in seven variants, including the hybrid which is the subject of this evaluation. I’m due to test conventional models from the new Camry lineup later in the year, but I’ve often said that if I was a hybrid buyer I’d be looking at Camry as opposed to Prius, and nothing has changed my opinion of that. The Camry hybrid is the most conventional of all the hybrids I’ve driven. It looks just like its stablemates and drives little differently. Well, of course, the driver is always aware of the what is happening in terms of propulsion, there are a raft of gauges and displays to let him/her know about the hybrid operation, and if you are astute you can feel the engine cutting in and out, but if you don’t take any of that on board, you could be forgiven for thinking that

FREE

SPECIFICATIONS

Price: Toyota Camry Atara S hybrid, $51,690. Dimensions: Length,4850mm; width, 1825mm; height, 1470mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, front-wheel-drive, 2494cc, 118kW, 213Nm, continuously variable automatic, 1575kg. Performance: 0-100km/h, 8.1sec.

you are driving a standard petrolengined 2.5-litre car. The latter is what makes the difference with Camry hybrid against Prius, although the hybrid operation is similar, the Prius with its 1.8-litre petrol engine doesn’t have the punch of Camry. Toyota rates the Camry with 118kW and 213Nm, and if you add in the power from the electric motor (33kW), the Camry feels quite lively and very torquey. As mentioned the Camry hybrid is very normal to drive, of course it wants to drive in electric mode all of the time, but such are the throttle demands that doesn’t happen constantly. During my time with the test car I selected electric vehicle mode often but seldom got further than 100m before the engine flicked on. I even tried to demonstrate electric mode to a young friend of my daughter, we were four-up in the Camry and I was trying to be gentle but only travelled a few metres before the engine cut in. That’s not a negative thing, I’m a great believer in hybrids, and there are many advantages, lower emissions

TOYOTA CAMRY HYBRID: Fresh body style. and respectable fuel usage figures, to name just a couple. Toyota rates the hybrid system with a 5.2-litre per 100km (54mpg) combined cycle average. At the end of four days with the test car I returned it to the dealership showing an average of 6.8l/100km (41mpg). These are good figures for a big car, and one that weighs in at 1575kg, and if you take into account I drove the Camry briskly during testing time, it feels strong beneath the accelerator and handles delightfully. A lot of the latter is due to the position of the batteries and the weight they generate. They sit low in the car and contribute to a low centre of gravity. In a corner the Camry hybrid stays flat without

much body movement. It can be pushed hard into a corner and the balance stays neutral. The tyres (215/55 x 17in Bridgestone Turanza), have high grip levels and provide solid information to the steering wheel. Turn-in is direct, while suspension movement easily arrests mid-corner bumps and deviations. All of the time the fully independent four-strut system is providing an absorbent ride, the occupants are treated to spring and damper rates well engineered for the rough nature of down under roads and the comfort levels we all expect from the large Australian car. The test car was badged Atara S and it sits midway in the specification level at $51,690, bearing

in mind that the hybrid model lands in only three spec levels as opposed to four in the non-hybrid line-up. Nevertheless, the Atara S is loaded with goodies. I’ve mentioned the comprehensive display graphics projected through a large central screen. There are also more graphics on the dash panel proper to encourage a gentle approach to throttle movement. The only notable exclusion with the Atara S would be satellite navigation, but I’m a firm believer in after-market GPS devices, so that needn’t be a consideration. It was good to be reacquainted with Camry, especially the ecofriendly version. I don’t think this is the last hurrah from Toyota with Camry, I’m sure as 2017 approaches there will be some last-gasp surprises within the line-up. But in the interim, the flash new body style and revisions have made it an even more desirable drive, the Camry is a smart piece of work.

Plan for outdoor renovation

For many home owners landscaping is often a forgotten area of renovating, or the last on the wish-list. Practically, if you are buildinga new home, landscaping willnaturally be one of the last jobs to complete, but if you are tossing up a number of ideas for renovating, consider your outdoor areas on equal par with other living areas throughout the home.

DIY OR PROFESSIONAL? It is advisable to consult a professional landscaper, especially for large projects. If your section is sloped, earthworks can be a tiresome and physically challenging task and other variable factors, such as soil quality, plant health and land stability are often difficult for the homeowner to recognise and treat properly. Having a professional involved in the job can reduce the incidence of error with such factors and increase the success rate of sustainable landscape solutions.

what you can expect. If you’re going it alone, it’s a good idea to try to replicate this process. Draw a to-scale diagram of your entire property, with shapes representing your boundary line, the house itself and other fixed areas such as garages, carports and the pool or spa. Physically measure out areas for different purposes and mark these to scale on your plan. Such planning will give you the ability to see how your space will be divided up, what you can fit in with the space that’s available and make for handy plans to take along to your building merchant, garden centre or landscape supply store to order products you will need.

PLAN YOUR PROPERTY SPACE

LINCOLN SECTIONS Natural waterways, attractive reserves, tennis court, UFB, some with water views. Sections from 605m2 to 777m2 and start at just $197,000. Secure one of our titled sections today or select a section available in Spring and pay later. Builders terms also available. Sales Office open Wednesdays 10.30 - 2.30 & Sundays 12.30 - 4.30 or call for an appointment anytime. Call or email Mike Hobbs 027 570 7674, broadfieldestates@xtra.co.nz | www.liffeysprings.co

Whether you’re going DIY or using a landscaper to improve your outdoor areas, it is equally important to start with planning. Your landscaper will be able to recommend a landscape designer to help you with this process. Before you visit your designer, discuss with your family what you want to achieve from your landscape project. What are the main uses of your outdoor area? Do you need a barbecue area, a quiet and tranquil reading spot or a safe play zone for the kids? Do you want a homely, warm and inviting garden, a stark and dramatic lookor something modern but with splashes of colour? Do you want edible plants? Make sure to communicate these desires to your landscape designer and be clear (and honest) about what you want as a result. Do you enjoy gardening “Whether you’re going DIY or using a landscaper to improve your outdoor areas it is equally important to start with planning” in the weekends, can you afford a landscaper to visit regularly or will you need a low-maintenance solution? Your designer will draw up scale plans for you, which will give a detailed layout of the proposed developments, and a visual representation of

LIGHTING Don’t forget lighting for your outdoor area to make the most of enjoying your new landscaping both day and night. Large feature plants, such as ferns and trees, look fantastic with small, ground-based lights pointing upwards to highlight the plant and cast dramatic shadows and aren’t necessarily a big expense.

Izone

– An Industrial park with a future

The hub of commercial enterprise in Selwyn is undoubtedly the Izone industrial park in Rolleston.

T

he park, which was established 10 years ago by the Selwyn District Council and is managed by Hughes Developments, covers 180 hectares, making it the largest fully consented industrial park in New Zealand. Its popularity is due to its strategic location close to highways and railway lines and its affordability, making it an attractive option for many investors. This includes commercial developers connected to the Christchurch central rebuild where spiralling construction costs and the government-imposed blueprint has restricted the number of building sites, leading to land scarcity and inflated land values. In comparison, Izone building sites have been 40 to 60 per cent cheaper than similar

industrial land located a few minutes away within Christchurch City’s boundaries. It is therefore not surprising that many businesses have chosen to shift to Izone, as evidenced by its sales figures. In the 18 months to the end of December 2014, the area of land sold at Izone matched the combined total of land sold in all business parks in Christchurch city. Purchasers included new businesses to Christchurch, businesses relocating and investors planning to attract good tenants and accrue value. Yet it was not that long ago in the history of Canterbury’s commercial development that Christchurch was the key place to be. Investors had perceived out-of-the-city satellite locations as less attractive and not popular with potential tenant companies and

their staff. Unlike Auckland, Christchurch employees traditionally had short commute of just a few kilometres, making them resistant to travelling 10 minutes longer, a perception which is changing. Even before the earthquakes, the Selwyn District and Rolleston town were the fastest growing in the country, both in population and economic development. Since then, improved motorways have reduced travel times between central Christchurch and Rolleston. There has also been earthquakeinduced migration of individuals and businesses moving to satellite areas. This has led to a ‘greater Christchurch’ commercial real estate market. Izone has always been popular and land sold there at a rate several years ahead of predictions. With the new socio-economic landscape, the developers offered competitive packages and this led to around 65 per cent of the project being sold, with the final stage seven released last month. With Izone located in the heart of central

Canterbury’s agricultural production, many of the 60 companies based there service the rural sector on processing and distributing food and textile products, or as allied industries servicing their neighbours. The business park is also home to the port of Tauranga’s new fully operational intermodal freight hub, Metroport Christchurch, which is Canterbury’s first inland port. In addition, the Central Plains Water irrigation scheme is also expected to add millions of dollars in further production and ongoing food industry business activity. Izone is well-positioned for businesses and investors with a bright future for those connected to it.

Springing into

I

t’s clear that spring is in the air: blossoms are blooming, days are getting longer and the sun is enticing us outdoors once more. When we are outside, however, we often notice our gardens need a bit of sprucing up, especially after winter’s neglect. What better time to get the garden sorted than early in spring, before summer fruit and vegetables grow and it is too hot to work in the garden during the day? If you are looking to properly landscape your garden, to update it, or simply to add new plants, look no further than the Selwyn Spring Gardening Guide. Selwyn District has some of the best garden centres, nurseries, landscape supplies and designers, along with everything you need,

from irrigation, contracting, to outdoor furnishings. Everything you need to create your perfect garden is here on our doorstep, with many local business people who can provide their services. Ride-on mowers, landscaping stones and barks, beautiful roses and some good garden centres which are all available within easy reach around the district. And if you feel overwhelmed and need some professional help in getting your garden up to scratch, there are a number of landscape specialists ready to step in, or join a garden tour and view some beautiful local Selwyn gardens for ideas. Enjoy our gardening liftout, which includes some of the best new products as well as advice and information about local growers and garden professionals.

e often pay a lot of money to create the perfect garden environment – beautiful weed-free grass and an array of colourful plants and trees to create another area to live in during the warm months of the year. But often these are at the mercy of mother nature, which can quickly cause that investment to deteriorate and sometimes even kill it. Once planted, lawns and gardens need regular watering. Installing a quality, automated irrigation system means that you won’t be spending time and effort shifting hose pipes around at various times of the day or night, when water restrictions are in place. Instead, your irrigation system will do all the hard work for you. Best Water Solutions owner Phil Hobson is happy to discuss all aspects of irrigation for domestic and lifestyle block settings for any property throughout Selwyn. He can help design a system that is specific to your garden, install it, then maintain and service it.

HERBS TO ADD TO

THE SALAD Edible gardens

It is surprising how many plants in the garden are herbs. Some grow best in hot dry places while others prefer moist, shadier spots. Lots will need to be contained so they do not take over the garden. Many herbs are culinary and it is nice to pick fresh leaves and edible flowers to add flavour to cooked and uncooked dishes.

Adding a touch of colour

Calendula (also called pot marigold) are easy to grow. Sprinkle the petals along with those from chives or garlic chives over a potato or green salad to add a splash of colour. High in vitamin C is nasturtium. It is also said to have medicinal value so best to use its vibrant yellow orange flowers and younger leaves sparingly, chopping them finely due to their tangy taste. This plant will spread quickly, dies back in winter yet is easy to control.

Herbs that add flavour

A tasty and healthy salad addition is parsley. This is extremely high in vitamin C as well as other vitamins and minerals. Let it go to seed to ensure next season’s crop. Also common to the garden is mint giving a fresh taste to a salad. There are a number of mint varieties including spearmint, apple

mint, peppermint and pineapple mint, each with a slightly different leaf shape and taste. Mint prefers the shade, needs confinement and will die back in winter. A favourite is vitamin rich Coriander. It adds a distinct delicious flavour to many dishes. To grow, choose a sunny moist wellfertilised spot, realising that it tends to bolt to seed in summer. Dill is also very high in vitamins A and C, adding a delightful flavour to salads. It is easy to grow though its fine leaves, while

needing sunlight can lose moisture on hot summer days. Dill dies back in winter so let it drop its seed or plant a new crop once the frosts are over. If short on cucumber, add the young fresh leaves of borage or salad burnet both of which are thought to have medicinal value. They will tolerate poor soil though both like some moisture. Rocket survives well in the cooler months, and while the leaves become redder and tangy after a frost, they are a tasty base for a

salad to which can be added a little tomato, feta and olive oil. The flowers are edible but let the plant drop some seed to ensure a plentiful supply throughout the year. Other suitable salad herbs include fresh basil with tomato; caraway seeds in coleslaw; lovage, which looks and tastes a little like celery; fennel, which will give an aniseed flavour though can take over in the garden; chervil leaves (also known as French parsley) and lemon balm for that lemony flavour.

Residential & Commercial Landscape Design requirements. “Our personal approach engages and guides clients through the landscape design process from initial consultation to construction. Headed by Hayden Stark, the team of Landscape Architects work hands on with clients to provide services ranging from a consultation where a sketched plan of the proposed layout is often provided, through to detailed landscape plans, contract administration and project management services. “We have carried out a wide range of landscape designs for new builds, existing houses and renovations for both rural

properties and town sections,” Hayden says. As clients’ needs vary, Xteriorscapes tailor make landscape design packages to suite individual requirements. Providing clients with a personal, informative service has been a successful approach, reflected through a large number of repeat clients.

outdoor spaces while providing functionality and personality in the design.

“People are wanting to create seamless courtyard spaces connecting to interior living areas.” These courtyards are typically deck or tile areas and provide for a relaxed outdoor furniture setting. This then leads onto a main outdoor dining courtyard which is usually a paved area separated from the house to maximise the afternoon sun. In all areas structural elements such as fireplaces, raised planters, louvre roofs and prevailing wind screens are great tools to enclose the

In many instances the best results have been achieved when we have been engaged early in the planning, while house plans are being developed. “We can assist with the orientation and location of a house within a property in order to maximise sun hours and provide easterly protection for the outdoor courtyard spaces.”

Gardening Guide Formerly known as South-Hort, Intelligro continues to be one of the leading landscape and gardening supplies centres in Canterbury. Intelligro’s aim is to take the guess work out of gardening, and to make your whole gardening experience more fun, reliable and a lot easier. As the top landscape and garden supplier in the Selwyn District, providing top quality products that really work is definitely something Intelligro prides itself on. Spring certainly brings a happy feel to the place, brightening up the garden, as well as lifting our moods and spirits. With the winter days behind us, we look to the warmer days ahead and the prospects of summer barbeques, fresh produce from our own gardens and of course all the beautiful flowers and trees. Whilst the weather has warmed up a bit, we still need to wait until Labour Weekend to do the majority of our planting. Early spring is a great time to prepare the garden and give it a spruce up from the winter months, ready to plant out, come Labour Weekend.

3 Healthy soil makes for healthy plants. Compost, fertiliser and mulch. These three items are essentials when it comes to creating and maintaining a healthy growing environment for whatever you are planting. Add these now if you haven’t done so yet. 3 When sowing seeds, always look at the information on the back. Make sure you have chosen seeds that will grow in our climate zone, and follow the sowing instructions. This will help to get the best results from the seeds. 3 Sprout seed potatoes. These are a must for every potato lover. They are easy to grow, and require very little maintenance. If you are lacking space, these wee spuds will happily grow in a pot, container or bucket. Choose the variety carefully depending on when you want the potatoes to be ready to harvest, as they get planted at different times through the season. 3 Prepare your veggie beds. Be it a raised garden, veggie patch, planter box or container, grab some Intelligro Veggie Garden Mix. It is packed with nutrients that your veggies will thrive on through the growing season. It is available in bulk, as well as in 35L bags. This is our top seller! 3 Planting tomatoes? Wait until Labour Weekend to plant unless you have a glasshouse. These hungry plants require a lot of nutirents through their growing season, and continue to need it even when they have started to produce their fruit. Using a top quality potting mix like Patio Plus, or Tomato Mix is essential for a bountiful crop. A topdressing fertiliser is on the must have list as well. You can use Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser or Top Dressing Fertiliser depending on where you have planted the tomatoes.

SPRING GARDENING GUIDE

Spring Gardening Guide 2015 GETTING THE BENEFIT OF

BEES AND BUTTERFLIES IN THE GARDEN Honey and bumblebees are very important visitors to our garden for their role in pollinating plants that feed us.

A

long with bees, butterflies are also important pollinators, and one favourite is the monarch butterfly due to its magnificent orangecoloured wings. They readily breed where there are milkweed plants, such as the swan plant. Worldwide, bee numbers have been decreasing. This makes it more important than ever to provide food sources to help increase bee numbers, especially as around a third of plants require pollination, with much of this carried out by bees. Bees need pollen from early spring for their breeding, to late autumn when they store it so the colony has food over winter. Planting a variety of plants that flower at different times of

the year help provide a continual food source. Bees love colour, particularly yellow, purple and blue, so positioning flowering plants such as marigolds, lavender, marjoram, borage, rosemary and grape hyacinths near fruit trees, and vegetable plants will draw bees to these, especially if there are large patches of a particular flower such as rocket in early spring. The bees diligently work their way over the flowers until almost all plants have been pollinated. They will, however, need water so position a bird bath or water feature nearby. Bees benefit from a few vege plants going to seed as they will take these back and store them in their hives to feed on over winter. Unlike birds that prefer trees and shrubs, bees and butterflies like open areas in the garden so ensure there is a high ratio of flowers to grasses and other non-flowering shrubs. Use safe organic sprays and avoid spraying when bees are out collecting nectar such as in the middle of the morning. Avoid pesticides as these are known to poison bees and other good insects in the garden. Let wildflowers grow or weeds bloom and create tiered herbaceous borders to attract bees. The taller flowers will be more noticeable, attracting bees so they can do their job of pollinating the food we eat.

ATTRACTING BIRDS

TO THE GARDEN Frequent visitors

A nice thing about living in Selwyn is hearing the sound of the skylark. In spring, this little bird, which is slightly larger and more delicate than a sparrow, will be seen hovering high in the sky singing. While preferring the countryside, the skylark has adapted well to housing development and will peck especially larger lawns for insects, along with pairs of spurwinged plovers, South Island oystercatchers or variable oystercatchers. House sparrows, dunnocks (hedge sparrows), starlings and blackbirds also pull out worms and insects from the lawn and will happily nibble on bread though it is not good for their diet, with a bird feeder of fat and seeds being a better option. Other seed eaters are finches. Chaffinches, greenfinches, goldfinches and yellowhammers will all feast on a newly laid lawn. Australian magpies are also common in Selwyn, heard roosting in pine trees. These omnivores eat invertebrates and roadkill and may pop by for a snack of bread.

Attracting natives

The wide open spaces of the Canterbury plains can mean fewer natives are seen,

yet they are around and will seek out a food source. As insect eaters, grey warblers (riroriro) have a lovely song, making them welcome visitors to a garden where there are trees and shrubs. Unforgettable is the song of the bellbird (korimako), and one is often seen roosting in the tall trees above the West Melton market. Predominantly a nectar eater, the bellbird feeds on honeydew from beech trees and nectar from flax, gum flowers, grevillea, kotukutuku (tree fuchsia), whauwhaupaku (five finger) and banksia, as well as the fruit of the makomako (wineberry) and coprosma. They will also be attracted to a feed station that offers sugar water, and once aware of it, will be regular visitors, so ensure the feeder is out of reach of predators such as cats. Also attracted to feed stations is the native silvereye (tauhou). Often called a waxeye, this bird is identifiable by a white ring around its eye. It feeds on insects, nectar and fruit, so it can be a pest. A real favourite is the fantail (piwaiwaka). They will be seen fanning their tails to catch an insect mid-air wherever there is a good stand of trees or shrubs. Just as exciting is a visit from a native pigeon (kereru). It predominantly eats

SOWING A LAWN

TOP TIPS FOR TREE PLANTING

An immaculate lawn will do wonders to improve the look of your garden and outdoor areas, and really makes a difference for homes on sale. News lawns will grow well in the warmer months (but not the heat of summer). Try March - April and August - October. The perfect lawn requires thorough preparation and attention to maintenance.

The key to successful tree establishment is ensuring you have the right species for the location in your garden. If you explain to the Evergreen Garden Centre staff the environment you intend to plant your tree and the purpose of the tree e.g. shade, screening, privacy or wind protection, they will be able to help you select a tree that will not only be suitable for your needs but should also thrive and fulfil its potential. Having selected a tree which suits your location, it is important to also treat it appropriately when planting.

To get your lawn in tip top shape, try these tips: Step 1: Prepare the area Using an application of herbicide (see pack for application details), remove all existing grass and other growth and debris from the area and dispose of appropriately. Now is the time to ensure your lawn area is levelled to your requirements and adequate drainage is in place. Using your Garden Fork, work through the soil to a depth of around 10cm to create a fine bed, adding topsoil where necessary to improve the soil’s quality. Apply fertilizer to the area and leave the bed to compact and settle. Step 2: Sow seed There are many varieties of lawn seeds on the market - choose one that will give you the right look you are after and suit the level of effort you are prepared to put into maintenance and the durability you require for your lawn’s purposes. Before sowing, rake the surface of the soil and remove any leftover growth or debris.

Sow seeds as per packet instructions and rake lightly to combine seeds with soil. Roll lightly over the soil to compact and ensure successful germination. After sowing is complete, water the area well. Step 3: Seed care Your new lawn needs daily attention. Keep the area moist by watering every evening. Keep people, cars and heavy objects off the lawn. Step 4: The first cut Once the lawn is approximately 3 cm high, it is ready for the first mow. Cut lawn to 2cm in height. After mowing, apply a second dose of fertilizer to the area, and water that evening. Step 5: Maintenance Reduce lawn watering to one evening per week. Continue to cut the lawn as required to a height of 2cm. Apply future doses of fertilizer once per month. Restrain from using weed killer until the lawn is well established (approx. 6 months).

1. Dig a hole at least twice the size of the bagged rootball of the tree you are about to plant. 2. Soak the tree while still in its bag. 3. Carefully remove the tree from the bag/pot – (if in a bag, slit the bag with a craft knife). 4. Place the tree into the prepared hole being careful not to plant too deeply i.e. do not bury the stem in the soil). 5. Surround the rootball with fresh composted soil and place slow release tree fertiliser tabs into the compost 100mm to 200mm from the side o the rootball. Compact the soil and compost firmly. 6. Stake the tree with 1-2 stakes depending on the size of the tree and site wind (see picture). 7. Water in deeply with subsequent frequent watering – once a week through summer with one to two buckets of water (depending on the size of the tree).

LARGE TREES

Hessian tree webbing to be tied in figure 8 around tree trunk and stake, then wrapped around itself to bind securely.

We suggest you use 50 x50mm untreated stakes.

If using bark mulch, ensure this is 100mm clear of stem, also 75-100mm mulch depth is ample (this helps to keep moisture in).

RAISING THE STANDARD Standard trees or shrubs can look stunning at the front door, entry, patio or driveway. So, what is a standard? Usually this term refers to a clean stem/trunk from the ground up to the foliage, being a branched/ball effect. Plants commonly used as standards for example, Bay, Prunus Lusitanica, Rose, Lemon, Camellia, Weeping Maple, Flowering Cherry, to name a few. Standards can be grown in the ground or in tubs/pots and moved indoors/outdoors as the temperature changes (Especially for lemons to prevent frost damage).

manually operated opening roofs; or canopies that are ideal for an extra carport, permanent cover over an outdoor patio, barbecue, pool area, deck or walkway. A pergola built out of wood is also a good choice if wind resistance is important. They will be in position all year round and if near to the house, may block out some sunlight in winter when free heat from the sun is desirable, while a wave shade which can be taken down could be fitted under a pergola for greater sun protection.

Sun shades

Sun shades are popular for their ability to provide seasonal sun protection and there is a wide variety available, either ready-made or

Shade options

The hot days have finally come and we head outdoors for some cool air, but without shade there is no respite. Trees and taller shrubs offer shelter but if away from seating areas, or where the garden is less established, there may be no protection from harsh UV rays. Shade can also be gained by constructing a pergola, fitting a canopy or shade sail, or by erecting an outdoor umbrella or tent. The question is what is suitable given the budget, situation and tastes. Also, for many people living in the Selwyn District, strong gusting winds that whistle across the Canterbury Plains are also a consideration. An umbrella propped through the middle of

custom-made, to a customer’s specifications. These are usually hitched to a surfeit, fence or pole, and have the potential to be height adjusted. According to Mark Levey from ShadeCraft, shade sails are very cost-effective and the best choice for high wind areas, but they do need to be correctly constructed and fitted if they are to be effective in windy conditions. ShadeCraft design and manufacture shade sails and awnings, and also supply Eclipse and Ferrari canopies, carports as well as giant umbrellas. “A well-constructed shade sail will be worry-free. You won’t have to worry about leaving it in high winds as it’ll be there when you get home.”

an outdoor table or cantilevered over seating may work well. It can be shifted to different places in the yard, and they come in a range of sizes. Some can also be tilted and dropped down to block the sun out when it is low. However, even the most robust umbrella can be vulnerable to everything but a light breeze. The wind and sun might also be blocked out with a clear or mesh PVC outdoor screen, blind or curtain, crank operated or rolled down by hand, which might be zipped down the sides. Other commercially produced options are: sun shades; giant umbrellas; motorised window awnings that cantilever out from a roof or attach to poles; fixed or sliding outdoor shutter panels; sun louvres; motorised or

T PROTECTING

THE GARDEN As summer approaches, watering the garden becomes a priority, and with talk of water charging, it is time to get smart on how to protect the plant life without breaking the budget.

reeman Irrigation are experts in setting up fully automated systems that ensure regular watering of the lawn and garden no matter what its size. Designed to irrigate early morning, the garden will absorb the moisture, and with the system on a timer, over watering is avoided. “We design, supply and install irrigation systems for residential homes and business

operations using top quality Toro and Hunter components and fittings,” says owner Phil Hudson. He adds that when installing, a mole plough is used, which is mess-free, and they offer a regular maintenance service. Call Freeman Irrigation on 0800 223 392 or email info@freemanirrigation.co.nz.

Do you want to save time money and water?

he warmer days of spring mean that winter will soon be a distant memory, and now is a great time to be preparing our homes and gardens for the lazy days of summer. You can start to prepare the soil for new plantings by giving your garden beds a good digging over and fertilizer too, but don’t overdo it! Add mulch to help retain moisture in anticipation of the drier weather. Planning is all part of the secret to a beautiful garden. Spend time in each area of your garden, viewing it as a visitor might. Make notes on what has to be replaced or removed in the way of plants, trees or other non-vegetation items. At the same time, think about what would improve each area – some stepping stones or pavers which would be practical as well as adding character, some garden art, wall hangings or sculptures to enhance a bare wall or fence, or a row of bright flowers to add colour to a dull corner. For your vegetable garden, consult a gardening book or visit a local nursery for ideas. You might be surprised at how selfsufficient you can be if you choose the right spot for your vegetables and give them the necessary care. Planting your potatoes now means that by Christmas you could be sitting down to new potatoes that you grew yourself. Make your garden a showstopper; plant the right shrubs and flowers to make a stunning display and give your outdoor spaces real

personality by adding some unique garden art. Outdoor decks should be thoroughly cleaned and, if necessary, revarnished or stained. Check for loose boards while you are about it. For a bright new look, you could recover your outdoor furniture in cheerful summery hues and patterns, or add some bright cushions and pots to brighten your outdoor living areas. You could buy a couple of charming, old-fashioned chairs and paint them in colours to contrast with your house. Be creative with containers and buy a range of sizes in similar colours, grouping them around your front door. Or go quirky and plant flowers or cacti in an old toolbox, colander or gumboots.
