Drinking driver runs off after crash A drink driver crashed a stolen ute through a hedge and onto the front lawn of a property between Prebbleton and Halswell on Sunday afternoon. Police found the 25-year-old about three hours later, walking along Sabys Rd. He recorded a breath-alcohol reading of 747mcg/L. The man was unlicensed and police say speed and alcohol were factors in the crash which happened on Trices Rd about 3pm. Senior Constable Mike Harker said the man had been drinking at home before taking the Toyota Hilux about 800m from the crash site and crashing it while going “too fast” around a corner. He was arrested and charged with unlawfully taking a motor vehicle, driving with excess breath-alcohol, careless driving and driving while forbidden. Senior Constable Harker said the

car was taken from a haulage yard. The owner of the property leased part of his property to another business and the alleged offender was employed by this business. The property owner was out at the time of the crash but it was reported by another motorist who saw the ute on the front lawn. The owner later returned to the property and was in the process of attending to his damaged hedge when he noticed a suspicious man walking up the bank on the other side of the road. He followed the man in his car and phoned police. Senior Constable Harker said the alleged offender had, since 2006, been forbidden to drive until such time as he obtained a licence. In this time he did not get a licence and had been stopped by police several times. He was not injured in the crash and will appear in the Christchurch District Court on Friday.

The biggest increases will be for the Lincoln Event Centre, where the public will find themselves paying between $1 and $12 more per hour, depending on the time and which part of the building they wish to book. District council and community groups will pay up to $15 more per hour and corporate users up to $18 more.

Full day bookings of the event centre will increase from the current $1600 for all users to $1900 for residents, $2200 for district council and community groups, and to $2500 for corporate users. A district council report on the increases, for all of the facilities, to last week’s meeting cited increasing costs for all

facilities, including “electricity, staff costs, pool chemicals, and maintenance.” Other services where fees are increasing include room hire at Rolleston Community Centre; pool entry and swim lessons at Selwyn Aquatic Centre; as well as borrowing fees, membership and subscription, and overdue charges at Selwyn Libraries.

New retail on the way for Selwyn BY TOM DOUDNEY

A new supermarket in West Melton and a retail centre in Rolleston are the latest developments proposed for Selwyn’s booming population centres. Gillman Wheelans has applied for resource consent for a new supermarket and commercial centre, on the corner of Iris Tay-

lor Ave and State Highway 73. It comes after news earlier this year that plans for a Progressive Enterprises supermarket at another yet-to-be developed shopping centre in the area had been canned. Rolleston Retail and Eldamos Investments have applied for resource consent for a retail centre on Masefield Drive. Gillman Wheelans director

Hamish Wheelans declined to comment on plans for the supermarket and commercial centre on the grounds that he still was waiting for key details to be finalised. He said he had “an understanding” with a supermarket chain but would not state which as the agreement was not formalised. He hoped to be in a position to provide more details within the

next two weeks. Rolleston Retail director Lloyd Bathurst said the application was currently on hold while they “tidied up some details” relating to the retail centre. “It’s a bit big and complex and some of it is subject to confidentiality at the moment but it will be announced in due course,” Mr Bathurst said.

▌IN ▌ BRIEF Men’s Shed

The Rolleston Men’s Shed is requesting a grant of almost $2000 to help cover the consents it needs to build a meeting room, kitchen and toilets at Foster Recreation Park. An application has been made to the Selwyn Central Community Board Discretionary Fund asking for $1517 for a recreational building consent and $360 for a resource consent. The total cost of the project, including consents, is $40,973.19. The trust which runs the Men’s Shed has raised $36,025.72.

Rapid numbers

The district council is reminding all rural property owners to check they have a rapid number displayed at their driveway entrance. Having a rapid number helps emergency services find their way to the property. They are also used by couriers. With summer being a high-risk season for fires in Selwyn’s rural areas, the district council is also advising residents to ensure their driveways are wide enough to allow emergency vehicles to get in and out.

Correction

SENDING A MESSAGE: Southbridge School pupils showed their support for the All Blacks and local hero, first five-eighth Dan Carter with a ‘dress in black’ day on Friday. The children stood in the shape of a silver fern for the photograph, which was laminated and given to Carter’s father, Neville. Mr Carter took it with him when he flew out of Christchurch on Saturday, bound for the United Kingdom where the Rugby World Cup is being played. He was to pass the photograph on to Dan Carter. The All Blacks won the match 62-13.

Play will recall soldier’s BY TOM DOUDNEY The legacy of a Taumutu man who served at Gallipoli will live on thanks to his descendants who have turned his war diary into a play and a book. Hohepa Teihoka, also known as Joseph, was with the Maori Pioneer Battalion in World War 1. His war diary gives a sometimes harrowing account of the Gallipoli campaign from leaving New Zealand in February 1915, up until two weeks before he and other troops were evacuated from the peninsula in December of that year. The play, Hell and Bullets, is being directed by his great granddaughter Cindy Diver. It will be performed as part of Ngai Tahu’s annual Hui-a-Iwi celebration at the Dunedin Town Hall on November 21. The title comes from a quote in the diary which Mr Teihoka wrote about his experience at Chunuk Bair in August, 1915. “Talk about wounded and dead, it was simply hell and bullets flying all roads,” he wrote. A book, also titled Hell and

Bullets, is being edited by another great granddaughter, Marolyn Diver, and written by her husband David who is curator of history at the Southland Museum. The book will be an in-depth look at the Gallipoli campaign, comparing the official military accounts with those in Mr Teihoka’s diary to explore various aspects of the conflict. Mr Teihoka’s grandson, Lincoln resident Raymond ‘Junior’ Young, said he thought the play and book were going to be “brilliant.” The text of the diary was an important piece of family history for him and the other grandchildren who had never met Mr Teihoka. “When I first got a

copy I was up in the middle of the night reading it to the end,” he said. “I wouldn’t have liked to be there. What they went through must have been hell.” Ms Diver said the idea to perform a play had come to her while she was co-directing another performance last year, based around the 100th anniversary of the first New Zealand troops leaving for World War 1. The play would be mostly talking, rather than physical acting, and was about “staying true to the words” Ms Diver said. “What he wrote in the diary is quite amazing and underplayed and he talked about things like Chunuk Bair with a real honesty to him, so as a director I don’t want to muck with that and try and make him sound more affected than he was.” The diary was passed down to Mr Teihoka’s daughter Ila when she was just a child, after he died in 1934. However, it was forgotten and only rediscovered when she moved house from Lincoln to Clyde in about 1990. Her daughter Frances Diver, Cindy and Marolyn’s mother, made copies of the diary and distributed them to family members. Cindy Diver then

Hohepa Teihoka

took a copy to the Hocken Library in Dunedin while she was studying at the University of Otago. Frances will have a speaking role in the play. She was not looking forward to getting up on stage but felt it was worth doing because of the importance of the diary to her family. She had been reading the diary a lot recently in preparation for her role.

INSPIRATION: Cindy Diver is directing a play based on her great grandfather’s World War 1 diary.

“It was quite emotional, really, just thinking that he was going through all that.” After his evacuation from Gallipoli, Mr Teihoka spent two months in convalescence, suffering from paratyphoid. His family were initially told he was dead, only to be informed that he was still alive after a memorial service had been held. He was discharged from the army on May 10, 1916 and died, aged 47, in 1934. He is buried in the cemetery at Taumutu.

time of bullets and hell

IMPORTANT SITE: Hone Wetere Church at Taumutu, where Te Ruahikihiki’s pa, Orariki, once was.

The people of Te Taumutu Runanga trace their ancestry back to the Ngati Kuri chief Te Ruahikihiki, who settled in the area in the 17th century, and his son Moki. When the Ngati Kuri moved south from Kaikoura, Te Ruahikihiki claimed Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere for his people. Reports of the rich food resources to be found there had reached the chiefs living in Kaikoura. Te Ruahikihiki’s pa, Orariki, stood on the site of the present day Hone Wetere Church and cemetery.

Moki established his pā site nearby at Taumutu (right), on the site where the present Ngāti Moki marae is located, near the south-western edge of Te Waihora. In 1891, a wharenui (meeting hall) named Moki was opened on the site of the original historic Pā o Moki. It has since undergone many alterations and additions and is now known as Ngāti Moki. The remains of the historic pa’s ramparts can still be seen in the form of grass-covered mounds running parallel to Pohau Rd.

Extracts from Hohepa Teihoka’s war diary during his deployment to Gallipoli in 1915 February 10, 1015 “The last day in Avondale camp, struck camp in the forenoon. Packed up tents and cleaned up the grounds. Light lunch 12.15pm. Assembled at 1.15pm. Marched to the railway station entrained for Mt Eden, marched into Auckland right on to the wharf, got sea bags, roll called and then marched onto the boat, [Wirrimoo] quite a crowd on the wharf to see boat leave, boat left 5.30pm, weather lovely.” July 3 “Arrived at the Dardanelles in the morning, 3pm at Anzac, Sari Bair. Landed Saturday morning 3.30am, marched about two miles from the landing to no.1 post, slept out in the open, had a shower about 4.20am. All day Saturday making dug out trenches, firing all day, shells whizzing all day over head.” July 14 “As usual sapping in the afternoon, first time had mules to carry water up to camp. Went for swim, snipers made bathing very uncomfortable, bullets landing very close to some of the chaps. Trenches very quiet all day, no.3 platoon in the trenches tonight, one private shot going

PASSED DOWN: Hohepa’s war diary from Gallipoli. towards the beach.” July 18 “Had church about 9.30am, went with Corporal Tahiwi to depot for N.Z.N.C mail. Received two letters from home, one from moko and other from John Puck. No. 4 platoon will be in the firing trenches tonight. Arrived in the trenches about 6.30pm, awful smell about the trenches, coming from dead bodies lying outside of the trenches. About 1 or 2am, somebody

passed word down the trenches that the Turks were advancing towards our trenches, but it turned out to be only a rumour.” August 7 “Hell of a time last night, made the advance supports to the Wellington Mounted, left the no. 2 post about 10pm. Advanced up the gully, my god it was hot work advancing under a hail of bullets, queer sensation, under fire, advanced for about a mile, got the order to charge the trenches.

Charged them and took them too. Stayed in the trenches until day break. Was war ships and field artillery, bombarding all the time, awful sight this morning, dead lying all roads. N.Z. still advancing, rifle firing was awful, everybody was mixed up with A and B companies by this morning. Advanced about two and a half miles into the Turks’ territories on the left flank, do believe will be in the trenches all day. Not safe to put one’s head above the parapets for fear of getting a bullet through it. Advanced on to flat top this morning, there was some narrow squeaks. Made dug outs and had a rest. List of casualties from no. 4, W. Manihera believed dead, P. Ropata dead, J Harding wounded, H. Peper, R. Nopera, J. Arthur, W Thompson believed dead from wounds. Came down from flat top hill into a bit of a gully and rejoins the rest of our company and rested there all day and part of the night. While there, a few of our chaps were picked off by stray bullets.” August 23 “Was on out post on Maori Ridge last night but there was nothing much doing, the officers in charge caught a few of them

DONATIONS WELCOME

asleep on their post, gave them fair warning this morning, if they were caught again, will be court marshalled and likely shot. Reported today that S. Karatai of no.4 platoon was killed at the firing line while they were up there. Whole two letters home today one of the mater and the other to W. Barrett, Tuahiwi.” September 30 “Was in the firing trenches last night, nothing doing at the Apex, but there was something doing at Walkers Ridge as they were doing a lot of shooting up at the Apex. Somebody was trying to use the bomb mortars, but they only managed to drop a few bombs on our own parapets. Great bombardment going on down at the cape, it was just one continuous rumble. The warships and the battery was doing a bit at the Apex. Was relieved out of the firing trenches at 5.30.” November 22 “A cold miserable day. Got orders last night to sleep with boots and putties on. Rumoured that the Germans had reinforced the Turkish lines, so expected an attack at any moment, otherwise things are very quiet up at the trenches at present.”

Harpreet Singh

OUR PEOPLE

New owner’s big plans for the Harpreet Singh is the new owner of the Southbridge Hotel. He spoke to reporter Tom Doudney about moving from his native India to earthquake-stricken Christchurch, cricket, and what changes might be in store for the hotel So you’re originally from India. When did you come over to New Zealand and what brought you here? I came over in September 2010 for study. Did you arrive before or after the September 2010 earthquake? After. I came on September 26. What did you think about coming to a place which had just had a big earthquake? I thought it might be hard to get a job here and study. I started my study in hospitality and business management at Avonmore [Tertiary Institute] on November 2. Were the earthquakes scary for you? Yeah, they were a bit of a worry. I had never felt an earthquake in India and then of course we got the February 22 one. Where were you when that one hit, and what did you think? I was in the Avonmore building, just across the road from the Hotel Grand Chancellor, on the seventh floor with some other people in the canteen.

I thought that was going to be my end because I could see the building in front of me just collapse. When it stopped we just ran away. After that I lived in a city council shelter in New Brighton for about three days. You decided to stick it out in Christchurch in spite of all this? I thought for a while I wanted to move to Auckland because my flatmate said he would be moving to Auckland but then I said to myself ‘an earthquake could happen anywhere and if it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen,’ and I decided I wanted to stay in Christchurch. Where have you been working between arriving in Christchurch and the move to Southbridge? I used to work at Robbies on Cranford St for the last few years, building up experience. Before that I was working at the Blenheim Rd Tavern for a year. What lead you to buy the Southbridge Hotel? I never worked in a country pub.

BIG PLANS: New owner Harpreet Singh hopes to open a restaurant alongside the bar at the Southbridge Hotel. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN I had been working for the last three months as a general manager for Robbies. The Southbridge Hotel came under liquidation and the liquidator told me ‘there is a pub for sale and you might want to buy it.’ I had never been to Southbridge but I came here and had a look and I thought it would be a nice wee opportunity. There is heaps of potential here with no

Southbridge Hotel pub for my whole life and give people good service and good food. Eventually I might get a few more pubs. You’ve only been at the hotel for a short time but are you getting to know all the locals already? Yeah, the people are pretty helpful here, they really look after you. What part of India did you come from? I come from a wee town called Paonta Sahib in northern India. How many people live there? Probably 200,000 people. Was it much of an adjustment moving to New Zealand? There is a big difference. When I first got here it was really hard for me. Avonmore was supposed to have me picked up from the airport but no one turned up - probably something to do with daylight savings. I was waiting for them but no one came so I had to make my own way so I just jumped into the bus but it’s really hard when you don’t know the language. I lived in a backpackers for one day and then went to Avonmore. One of the images people who haven’t been to India have of the country is of it being very crowded, whereas New Zealand is probably one of the world’s more underpopulated countries. Is that

Saying thank you CHEERS: Mr Singh gets a seal of approval from Tony, a regular of the hotel. something you liked about coming here? Yeah. India is getting pretty developed - I go back once a year and each time it has already changed so much. What do you like to do in your spare time? Playing cricket, talking to new people, and riding my Royal En-

field motor-cycle. What cricket club do you play for? Halswell. Which country’s cricket team would you support if they played each other? I still follow the Indian team but if they play against the Black Caps I always support the Black Caps.

Southbridge resident and former patient Dylan Flatman expressed his gratitude to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter staff at the launch of the Canterbury Air Rescue Support Crew - a new fundraising initiative. After a serious accident in Dunsandel last November, Dylan, 12, was taken by the helicopter to Christchurch Hospital where he lay for days in an induced coma. Dylan’s father Nigel said his

son had since made an amazing recovery. “If the chopper had not been there I don’t know what would have happened,” he said. Volunteer manager Cheryle Moreton-Robins said it cost $7m a year to keep the service going, and a huge amount of the money was raised by the community. The helicoper cost $8625 per hour to run, and made more than 700 flights in Canterbury last year.

All out to celebrate 150th Southbridge BY TOM DOUDNEY

EVENTS

Southbridge will celebrate becoming the latest Selwyn town to join the 150 club with a number of events this weekend. The town joins Lincoln, West Melton, Prebbleton and Leeston as settlements which have marked 150th anniversaries within the last few years. Among the weekend’s celebrations will be a historical display and ‘Still Blue and White’ ball on Saturday, a street parade and mapped tour of historical points of interest around the town on Sunday, and a Labour Day Sports event on Monday. Southbridge 150th Committee chairman and district councillor Pat McEvedy said the event was the culmination of 18 months of planning. “The function on Saturday night has been sold out for six to eight

WELCOMING: Spring blossoms line High St, leading into Southbridge. The Southbridge Advisory Committee chairman Wayne Palmer, 51, has lived in the town his whole life. Mr Palmer said some of the most important development he had seen in the town included the building of the local pool complex

and a significant refurbishing of the Southbridge Hall. “There have been a lot of new faces over the last five years since the earthquake,” he said. “The good thing about the township is that everyone gets behind everyone.”

Southbridge history The history of Southbridge can be traced back to Homebrook, a grazing run of 10,000 acres taken up by Thomas Rowley in 1853. In 1862, new owner Charles Joseph Bridge shifted out with his wife and children, using the land for cattle, sheep and cropping. By 1863, half of Homebrook had been freeholded and by 1865 only 60 acres of the run was left. Mr Bridge had purchased 1500 acres of the best land around the homestead. He later sub-divided part of this for the new town. It is not known why the name ‘Southbridge’ was chosen but many believe it commemorates Mr Bridge. The settlement at Bishop’s Corner was originally named ‘Northbridge’ so the theories go that Southbridge was subsequently named. In 1864, he gave 20 acres of land for a church, vicarage, burial ground and glebe. The St James of Ellesmere Church was built that year, financed by the public and a provincial government grant. Fifty acres were surveyed for the township. On January 25, 1867, the Lyttelton Times advertised sections, stating that there was already a blacksmith, wheelwright and church and that a coach ran daily to Christchurch. At that time, the blacksmith Alexander Webster employed 18–20 hands. The school opened in 1868 and the first A&P show was held in Southbridge in 1871.

By 1883 the town had grown to include two hotels, two banks, two newspapers, three lodges a town hall and a library. The timber for these buildings mostly came from Little River by raft access across the lake. The railway line reached its terminus at Southbridge in 1875. Southbridge Rugby Club was one of the eight clubs in the Canterbury Rugby Union when it began in 1879. The first All Black from the club was H.H. Lee in 1888. At a later date he was followed by Albert Anderson and currently Daniel Carter. The fire brigade began when the Southbridge Town Board purchased a manual engine in 1890 but it had a somewhat ineffective history until it was revitalised in 1948. A new fire station would later be built in 1957. The depression in 1880s and 1890s dealt a severe blow to the town. Businesses began to relocate to Leeston. The two centres

were too close and transport was improving. The population that had been 668 in 1886 reduced to 396 in 1901. St James of Ellesmere burned down in 1934 but was replaced by a brick church in 1935 and a hall was added in 1966. The railway closed in 1962, as did similar branch lines. New rugby clubrooms and squash courts were built with significant input of voluntary labour and opened in 1978. Water supply had been from wells that were mostly only 18 to 26 feet deep. Eventually a reticulated water supply became operational by 1983. A new $3.1 million sewerage scheme was opened in 2005. Prior to this, septic tanks had done most of the work of effluent disposal. In the 2013 census, Southbridge’s population was 861. *Compiled from ‘Southbridge a History’ by Rosaline Brown.

Amy Adams Selwyn MP

Selwyn youth thriving BY AMY ADAMS, SELWYN MP Earlier this month I teamed up with Speaker of the House David Carter to select two young people to represent Selwyn at Youth Parliament next year. I was really impressed by all of the finalists and the passion with which they were able to discuss local and national issues of importance to them. This reinforced for me how important it is for us to support our young people so that they can thrive and contribute to their community. This starts early by ensuring children are being immunised and receiving health checks before they start school. Encouragingly, the latest results show 93 per cent of eight-month-olds received their full immunisations and a record 92 per cent of eligible four-yearolds received a free B4 School Check, to identify and address any potential health or developmental problems at an early stage. On July 1, all children aged under 13 became eligible for free GP visits, after-hours services, and free prescriptions.

The uptake of the scheme has been fantastic. Two months after its launch, 98 per cent of general practices across the country offer free GP visits, covering 99 per cent of children under 13. Older children’s health will be boosted by a new plan to improve the National Human Papillomavirus (HPV) immunisation programme. A new performance target of having 75 per cent of eligible girls fully immunised by the end of 2017 will help track improvements in immunisation rates. Improving HPV immunisation coverage will have significant long-term benefits for New Zealand women, including a reduction in the incidence of HPV infections - the cause of 70 per cent of cervical cancers. More young people are getting faster access to specialist help for alcohol and drug problems so they can live healthy, addiction-free lives. It is vital that we give children the best start in life and support them throughout their youth to help them grow into healthy adults who are able to contribute to their communities.

SELWYN TIMES

Youth MPs represent Selwyn Two Selwyn teenagers will try their hand at national politics next year when they represent the district at Youth Parliament. Selwyn MP Amy Adams has named Tim Marshall, 16, of Broadfield as her youth MP for 2016, while Speaker of the House David Carter, who lives in the Selwyn electorate, has chosen Lexi Sutherland, 16, of Kirwee as the youth speaker of the house. Tim attends St Thomas of Canterbury College while Lexi is a student at Darfield High School. They were chosen from among six finalists who each had to give a fiveminute presentation on local and national issues and

then answer a question from each member of the judging panel. Ms Adams praised all of the finalists for having the courage to put themselves forward and present their opinions to the panel. “I was very impressed with all of the finalists and would have been proud to have any one of them as my representative,” she said. Tim and Lexi will each hold the title of youth MP from January 25 to July 25. They are expected to engage with the youth community in Selwyn during this time so that they can represent them effectively at the Youth Parliament in July.

MOVERS AND SHAKERS: Tim Marshall, above right, will get to try out the job of Amy Adams, above left, when he serves as Selwyn’s youth MP next year, while Lexi Sutherland, pictured with David Carter, will be youth speaker of the house.

New stage for Hororata dancers Dancers will have a brand new stage to perform on at next month’s Hororata Highland Games. There will be nearly 100 dancers competing at the games in more than 30 different categories. These will include three CanterburyWest Coast championships and one South Island championship competition. A new 70sqm stage is being built at Hororata Domain thanks to funding and volunteer labour from local businesses and charity. Event manager Cindy Driscoll said organisers were focused on putting on the best Scottish competitions in the country and building the stage was a big step towards this. “For the past four years we have borrowed temporary stages,” she said. “While they were of good quality, it is very hard to get them perfectly level and this does affect the dancers. They were also time consuming for volunteers to install.” The new stage will be placed on levelled permanent footings, with the top built in segments so it could be placed on for the event and removed and stored when not in use. Local builder Mark Moore from Moore Builders Ltd has led the project and designed the stages, while ITM Darfield and Selwyn Sawmills have donated materials, Neil Walker Contracting used his machinery to help bore the 60

GROUNDWORK: Construction of a new stage at Hororata Domain is underway. footing holes and AFI Systems has supported the project with labour and funding. Additional funding has been received from Air Rescue Services Ltd. Mrs Driscoll said the games would not be possible without the commitment and effort of volunteers. “Over 200 volunteers work on the event, helping not just on the day but throughout the year. Many are local but there is also a reasonable number who are not.” The Hororata Highland Games is on November 7. *Games organisers are seeking volunteers. If anyone would like to be involved, they can email games@hororata.org.nz. All volunteers receive a ticket to the event, a tee shirt, lunch and an invite to the Prime Smoke ‘thank you’ barbecue at the end of the day.

LAWyerS

▌READERS’ ▌ LETTERS • Thank you for your invitation (Selwyn Times, October 13) to comment on the decision by the district council to eliminate the Selwyn Central Community Board from being part of the governance of the district. I think the council got this decision wrong. I did not make a submission on the representation review and I regret not doing so. Democracy, and an active democracy at that, is precious. And people are the most important aspect of local governance – he tangata, he tangata, he tangata. Community governance (governance by the people, for the people) is the way of the future – strongly promoted by the United Nations. I have little doubt that the

19

elected councillors advocating for the demise of community boards would change sides of the debate very quickly if it was the elimination of the district council in favour of local government reorganisation amalgamating Selwyn, Christchurch and any other local authority that was being considered. Yet it is essentially the same argument. Keep the ‘local’ in local government. Local issues should be dealt with at the most immediate (or local) level consistent with their solution – the subsidiarity principle! Governance is about determining how power is exercised, how citizens are given a voice, and how decisions are made on issues of public concern. The well-being

of our society depends on it. I respect the people who have contrary opinions on this matter but I think they are wrong on this one. Retain the community board and allocate to it, with appropriate delegated authority, the power to deal with local issues. Give them a chance to be effective. – Darryl Griffin, West Melton

GRASSROOTS SPORT HARD TO STOP: Troy Hallett, with ball in hand, on the charge for the Canterbury Country Colts against North Otago. PHOTO: ABBIE BERRY • More sport, p24

GOOD PRACTICE: Prebbleton School pupils Sophia Butler and William Hearsey, both 5, were among 7600 people in Selwyn taking part in the nationwide ‘Shakeout’ earthquake drill on Thursday. Overall, about 1.3 million New Zealanders dropped, covered and held on as part of the drill. In Selwyn, 14 schools and 21 pre-schools took part in Shakeout.

Future looking bright for West Melton prop BY TOM DOUDNEY A West Melton rugby player’s fledgling career is looking bright after picking up his second player of the year award in a month. Troy Hallett, 19, was last week named Canterbury Country Colts player of year. Last month the prop was named overall player of the year for the West Melton club after a season where the Colts team was unbeaten. His coach, Brett Holland, said Hallett was a dedicated player with a promising future. “He trains hard and goes to the gym and keeps his body in good

WELL COVERED: Staff at West Melton School taking part in Shakeout.

Ellesmere tennis results It was a day of very one-sided results in the Ellesmere Tennis competition on Saturday. Tai Tapu Silver beat Rolleston Black 7-1 at Tai Tapu; Springston

Gold beat Prebbleton Gold 7-1 at Springston; Rolleston Platinum beat Lincoln Servivors 8-0 at Lincoln; and Killinchy White beat Tai Tapu Gold 8-0 at Killinchy.

nick and it shows on the footy field,” he said. “He’s not the sort of kid who will go on the piss and have a few [drinks]. He will look after himself that night. He is more on the way to being professional, compared to the other kids.” Hallett scored 10 tries in 14 games for West Melton this season – a rare feat for a front rower. “He’s pretty mobile and gets around the park,” Holland said. “I was coaching the Ellesmere Development team [recently] and we played the [Canterbury Country] Colts. I thought Troy might be up against it that day because one of the props in our team was

a senior player from Darfield but Troy marked him with ease.” Hallett said he was stoked to get the award. “I wasn’t really expecting it but I am really happy with what I have achieved and what I have learnt and how far I have got this year.” His long-term goals included making the Canterbury ITM Cup squad. West Melton’s senior coach Craig Hale said he expected Hallett would be playing some games for the senior side next season. “He’s a good ball carrier with a lot of potential, a good physique and, for modern rugby, a good turn of pace.”

Aquatic Centre Swim School Classes Popular

Meet Your Street is

coming to Selwyn

Selwyn Aquatic Centre’s Swim School now has around 1,400 children and adults enrolled in classes. Classes are offered at all levels covering babies from six months old to adults. As a result of the popularity of swim lessons, while lane swimming will still be available at the centre at all times, only one lane will be available in the main pool between 3.30 and 6.30pm from Monday to Friday during each school term. Swimmers who don’t want to share a lane with others are being asked to avoid these times. Selwyn Aquatic Facility Manager Kathy Moore says, “We are seeing a large number of children progress from the Learn to Swim pool, to lessons in the main 25m pool and there is a real risk that if we are not able to provide space for them, they will not have the opportunity to enhance their swimming ability.” “We encourage people to call the centre to be advised of the best times for main pool use so they can avoid peak swimming times.”

Pick up your Emergency Guide now! Emergency Survival Guides were recently delivered to most households in Selwyn.

This spring and summer Meet Your Street will be visiting 40 different streets in Selwyn giving people a chance to get to know their neighbours. Meet Your Street is a fun, informal gathering in a local park with free coffee. It’s a chance to make new friends, enjoy some music and fun games for kids and adults like joining a giant connect four game. It is being hosted by the Selwyn Youth Council and Selwyn District Council. The Selwyn Youth Council is bringing their coffee kart to the events, giving local young people the opportunity to gain experience running their own business and gaining employment skills. As Selwyn is New Zealand’s fastest growing district, there are lots of new residents in our community. Meet Your Street is a great chance to help people settle in to our district and meet their neighbours in a friendly environment.

The Council also has small grants of up to $50 available to help communities host their own gatherings (like picnics, barbeques or fun days) so local neighbourhoods can get to know each other better. Applications can be made online at www.selwyn.govt.nz and close on 30 November.

Check the fire danger daily Over the coming months we will be using the Selwyn District Council website and Facebook page to issue a daily alert advising when the weather means the fire risk is extreme in Selwyn. The fire risk varies day to day and when strong winds combine with hot weather the fire risk becomes extreme. When this warning is issued we recommend that you: · don’t light outdoor fires · be careful when operating outdoor machinery as if a spark is ignited this could easily spread and create a fire. You should have a hose connected which can reach the area where you are operating machinery or another method of extinguishing a fire Older fires can easily reignite in the right weather conditions. If you have lit an outdoor fire in recent months you must carefully check underneath any debris to see if any embers or heat still exists and douse this well with water. Fires can endanger lives and be costly. We encourage you to check our website every day over spring, summer and autumn to see if the fire warning (which appears as the red banner below on our website homepage) is in place and follow our advice if it is. If you carry out activities which create a fire risk, such as burning or operating machinery, it is particularly important to check the website daily.

Aquatic Centre Swim School Classes Popular

Meet Your Street is

coming to Selwyn

Selwyn Aquatic Centre’s Swim School now has around 1,400 children and adults enrolled in classes. Classes are offered at all levels covering babies from six months old to adults. As a result of the popularity of swim lessons, while lane swimming will still be available at the centre at all times, only one lane will be available in the main pool between 3.30 and 6.30pm from Monday to Friday during each school term. Swimmers who don’t want to share a lane with others are being asked to avoid these times. Selwyn Aquatic Facility Manager Kathy Moore says, “We are seeing a large number of children progress from the Learn to Swim pool, to lessons in the main 25m pool and there is a real risk that if we are not able to provide space for them, they will not have the opportunity to enhance their swimming ability.” “We encourage people to call the centre to be advised of the best times for main pool use so they can avoid peak swimming times.”

Pick up your Emergency Guide now! Emergency Survival Guides were recently delivered to most households in Selwyn.

This spring and summer Meet Your Street will be visiting 40 different streets in Selwyn giving people a chance to get to know their neighbours. Meet Your Street is a fun, informal gathering in a local park with free coffee. It’s a chance to make new friends, enjoy some music and fun games for kids and adults like joining a giant connect four game. It is being hosted by the Selwyn Youth Council and Selwyn District Council. The Selwyn Youth Council is bringing their coffee kart to the events, giving local young people the opportunity to gain experience running their own business and gaining employment skills. As Selwyn is New Zealand’s fastest growing district, there are lots of new residents in our community. Meet Your Street is a great chance to help people settle in to our district and meet their neighbours in a friendly environment.

Check the fire danger daily Over the coming months we will be using the Selwyn District Council website and Facebook page to issue a daily alert advising when the weather means the fire risk is extreme in Selwyn. The fire risk varies day to day and when strong winds combine with hot weather the fire risk becomes extreme. When this warning is issued we recommend that you: · don’t light outdoor fires · be careful when operating outdoor machinery as if a spark is ignited this could easily spread and create a fire. You should have a hose connected which can reach the area where you are operating machinery or another method of extinguishing a fire Older fires can easily reignite in the right weather conditions. If you have lit an outdoor fire in recent months you must carefully check underneath any debris to see if any embers or heat still exists and douse this well with water.

Sefton victorious BY KYLE KNOWLES

FRONT FOOT: Geoff Barclay hitting down the ground for Halswell on his way to a quickfire 40.

Hard-to-chase lead for Halswell Senior A The Halswell Senior A cricket side hold a commanding 133-run lead at the halfway point of their two-day match against New Brighton. Playing at Halswell Domain on Saturday, the hosts lost the toss and were put in to bat. Halswell lost their first wicket at 15 before a 70 run second wicket partnership between Matt McClintock and Campbell Bennett steadied the innings. Bennett was out for 22 and McClintock followed shortly afterwards for a well-compiled 42. After going to the drinks break at 105/3 after 25 overs, Halswell couldn’t put together another partnership of substance and were dismissed for 173 with Geoff Barclay hitting a quickfire 40 . New Brighton had three overs to bat before the lunch break and Halswell had

quick success with Barclay and captain Leighton Johnston picking up a wicket each to have New Brighton 8/2 at the break. Halswell continued to claim wickets after the break and had their opposition reeling at 80/9, with Johnston taking 6/42 from his 16 overs. The New Brighton captain declared, asking Halswell to bat for the last hour of the day. In response, Halswell lost three wickets and finished the day on 40/3. With seven wickets intact, Johnston said Halswell would look to score a quick 80/100 runs and push on for the outright victory in day two, this Saturday. Other club results Halswell 3a 155 lost to East Shirley 157/7 Halswell 3b 69 lost to St Albans 156 Halswell 20/20 145 lost to Cavaliers 146/5

A blistering 40 ball 90 from South Malvern’s James Ferris was not enough to get his side over the line against unbeaten Sefton in premier country cricket on Saturday. Chasing 226 for victory, South Malvern fell 11 runs short, all out for 215 at Sefton. Ferris’ first 50 came off 18 balls in an innings which included five sixes. South Malvern looked out of the race at 143/8 before a late partnership between Kyle Innes and Tom Rowlands got them to within 15 runs of their target. Barry Cross was the best of the Sefton bowlers taking 4/38. Earlier, Sefton’s total was put together on the back of a better than a run-a-ball 73 from Matt Laffey. In Rangiora, Southbrook were too good for Greendale, winning by nine wickets with Canterbury under-19 and Canterbury Country representative Jack Boyle scoring 77 not out. Greendale batted first and were bundled out for a

paltry 140. Henry Shipley was the top scorer for Greendale with 43 while Darren Boyle picked up 4/26 with the ball. Southbrook were not troubled in their run chase, reaching the target only one wicket down and with nine overs to spare. Darren Boyle backed up his good work with the ball scoring 51. Lincoln scored a four wicket win over LeestonSouthbridge with opening batsmen Joe Williams the backbone of the successful run chase. He scored 84 off 116 balls before being bowled by Ben Roborgh. Leeston-Southbridge put up a competitive total of 195/8 in their 45 overs on the back of 74 from Harry Chamberlain but Williams’ knock was enough to get Lincoln home with 13 balls and four wickets to spare. Simon Clark was the pick of the Lincoln bowlers taking 4/25. In the final game of round three, Oxford continued their poor start to the season

losing by six wickets to Weedons. Oxford were rolled for 92 with Mike Kingston and Kane Meyerhoff each taking three wickets for Weedons. Weedons were then largely untroubled in their run chase reaching the target four wickets down. Shannon Dunnett led his side home with 43 not out. In Rangiora on Sunday, Canterbury Country won their Quad series match against Canterbury Under 20 on the back of a maiden Jack Boyle century. He combined in an excellent 143 run third wicket partnership with Matt Laffey who was making his return to the side after player coach Shanan Stewart broke down in the warm up. Although being belted for three big sixes by Matthew Rowe, Nathan McNicol responded well to claim five wickets. When Matt Parker was at the wicket the under-20 side were ahead of the required run rate but Will Williams got him out and the challenge eventually fell 37 runs short.

Action plan aims to attract

skilled dairy workers “Most dairy farm businesses have positive workplaces because farmers see the benefits for everyone if they can get and keep good staff.”

Minister for Primary Industries Nathan Guy at the launch of the Workplace Action Plan.

Attracting the skilled dairy workforce farmers’ need to run their businesses is the goal of a new joint workplace action plan launched with the minister for Primary Industries Nathan Guy at the Lincoln University dairy farm earlier this month by Federated Farmers and DairyNZ.

ore than 300 farmers and rural professionals attended the launch. DairyNZ chairman John Luxton said one of the aims of the industry’s 10-year strategy was to see 90 per cent of dairy farm businesses having quality work environments by 2020. “We have put actions and commitments in this new plan to ensure we achieve that part of the strategy. We are competing with all the other career opportunities on offer across the globe. We’re not always the most attractive choice for many young people these days and we need to be if we want to develop and retain the workforce we need,” he said. The new Sustainable Dairying: Workplace Action Plan sets out five areas of good people management, including balanced and productive work time, fair remuneration and wellness, wellbeing and health and safety. One of the key

expectations is that the industry will improve its record in health and safety, and businesses will meet all legal and employment requirements. A dairy employee guide has been produced and measures are in place to track the industry’s progress against the plan. Federated Farmers dairy section chair Andrew Hoggard said the quality of the work environment that a farmer provided was central to attracting and retaining staff. “Most dairy farm businesses have positive workplaces because farmers see the benefits for everyone if they can get and keep good staff. That is the reason why DairyNZ and Federated Farmers have worked together on this plan. “We recognise that level of best practice is not uniform across all businesses and that parts of our industry need to lift their performance to make dairy farming more attractive to a greater number of employees,” he said. “A good work environment does not stop with just doing the minimum,” Mr Hoggard said. “We’re encouraging farmers to go from good to great as employers and supporting them with tips, tools and resources to make it easier. All farmers want to attract good staff – and so we’ve set out a clear road map for how to make that happen for them.” For a copy of the Sustainable Dairying: Workplace Action Plan, including the guides for dairy farms and dairy employees, go to www.dairynz.co.nz/wap.

Winner urges auctioneers to enter 2015 competition With entries now open for the 2015 Heartland Bank Young Auctioneer of the Year Competition, the 2014 winner is urging other young auctioneers to enter the “life-changing competition”.

C

am Bray of PGG Wrightson won the 2014 competition after entering all three years of the competition. The win enabled him to travel to the 2015 Sydney Royal Show to attend the Australian Livestock and Property Agents Association (ALPA) Young Auctioneers National Final. Mr Bray said that the trip to Australia resulted in some life-changing experiences. “The trip to Australia was great - not only for the fact that I was representing New Zealand, but to be able to rub shoulders with Australia’s best was an invaluable experience.” Mr Bray had the opportunity to meet with many icons in the Australian industry and was able to show off his auctioneering skills during a charity auction. “Who would have thought I’d go from selling bent nails and rusty tractor parts a few years ago to selling charity items to a crowd of 800 people in the middle of Darling Harbour, Sydney.” Mr Bray urged other young auctioneers to enter the competition, saying that it has boosted his career. “This is such a valuable competition to the industry and gives young auctioneers the chance to stand up and be counted among their peers. “Since entering the competition in the first year, it has opened doors for me within the company I work for, which I thank them for. I’ve had the pleasure of selling at bull sales, ram sales, cattle sales and just recently a bloodstock sale which was a childhood dream come true! The competition has truly changed my life and has been a very worthwhile experience. “It might have taken three years to win the competition, but I have achieved a lot because of it.” The competition will take place on

Thursday November 12 and Friday November 13 at the 2015 Canterbury A&P Show. During the final judging on Friday, each entrant will be required to sell three lots of heifers/bulls in a mock auction. They will be judged on overall performance including voice, diction, manner and values. The interview component will see entrants evaluated on their communication skills and knowledge

“Since entering the competition in the first year, it has opened doors for me within the company I work for, which I thank them for.” of the terms and conditions relating to livestock auctioneering. Entrants will be competing for the New Zealand Stock and Station Agents’ Association (NZSSAA) Young Auctioneers Trophy, $2000 in travel from Heartland Bank to enable the winner to attend the Young Auctioneers Competition in Australia, a $500 Swanndri clothing voucher and the Denis Hazlett Memorial Medal. Entries are open to employees of members or affiliate members of the NZSSAA; competitors must be under 30 years of age as at November 1, 2015. Entries close Tuesday, October 27, 2015. For entry information, see www.theshow.co.nz or contact the Canterbury A&P Association on 03 343 3033 or info@theshow.co.nz.

GARDENING Rachel Vogan gives us the round-up on how to get the best toms in town

Care will produce beautiful tomatoes I AM never without tomatoes in my vegetable garden. Even when living in apartments and flats, I always had room for a plant or two. Sometimes they were in large kitchen buckets or terracotta pots; one year I planted them in an old 44-gallon drum Dad had brought in from the farm. I come from a long line of tomato lovers and growers. My nana, Doreen Rachel Annie Vogan, religiously grew three rows each season on her north-facing sloping garden at the head of Akaroa Harbour. She liked the reliability and durability of ‘Money Maker’ and ‘Potentate’, but also the fleshiness and flavour of beefsteak. She never bothered with the tiny cocktail types; “what a waste of time these are,” she thought. Nowadays, the trend and demand for mouthfuls of sweet cocktail tomatoes is quite the opposite of nana’s taste. Each season new ones appear, generally ranging in colour or shape. When and where to grow Italian tomato hybrids have less acid and seeds, making them ideal options for those who want to bottle tomatoes, make paste and or passata.

If you know the ins and outs of tomato growing you will know that they need full sun to thrive and to stimulate flower production

and fruit formation. Shade isn’t an option; all-day sun is mandatory. And don’t bother planting them until the temperatures are at least 15-20°C during the day. Not just any old dirt will do either; the soil needs to be fertile, and have the ability to hold onto moisture. When growing in the ground, enhance the soil by adding in generous amounts of well-rotted animal manure or sheep pellets. Compost is ideal, too. Fork it all in and then blend in tomato fertiliser prior to planting. Don’t get too heavy-handed with nitrogen-laden items though as too much nitrogen encourages leaf growth and less flower production. That’s why the potash-laden tomato fertilisers are necessary. If you wish to take all the guesswork out of growing tomatoes, go down the easy route and plant straight in tomato mix. These ready-made mixes have all the goodies pre-blended into them. Either add it to the garden or fill your pots and containers with it and plant. It does need to be replenished each season, as the crops use the nutrients throughout the growing season. •Continued on page 30

gardening without guesswork Question:

I am preparing an asparagus bed. I am at Faringdon trying to garden in a river bed. How deep rooted are asparagus?

Ah fresh asparagus - you can’t beat it! Gardening in a river bed can’t be easy, but here are our tips for you. Asparagus are deep rooting plants that require well drained soil in full sun and need plenty of fertiliser. River beds are usually sandy with stones and are free draining so this should be a good start for asparagus. Add some of our Organic Compost and fertiliser (we have a wide variety in store to use so come and see us) each season. Plant the crowns just below the ground surface. It is recommended that you start to harvest after the second year from planting only. Asparagus needs regular watering, but don’t over water as they don’t like having what is called “wet feet” (a build-up of water at the roots). Our Veggie Garden Mix contains fertiliser, so this could be a great option for planting in to. All the best!

GARDENING TLC – tomato loving care Keep them cosy – in areas where late frosts touch the ground into November, tomatoes should be kept indoors or tucked up with a hot-water bottle in the glasshouse overnight. Once the frosts have packed up, get busy with planting. Do protect young seedlings from strong winds as well.

Tomato ‘Tumbling Tom Red’ is a low-growing type ideal for baskets and planters; the fruit is quick to mature as well, often being ready for Christmas if planted early enough.

Staking – unless you are planting supercompact or tumbling dwarf hybrids, all tomatoes need a supportive stake, fence or set of strings to support the main stem. As the fruit develops, the weight of each truss of fruit increases, putting pressure on the main stem, sometimes causing it to snap if left unsupported. Staking also helps keep the fruit off the ground. Watering – a regular watering regime is one of the essentials. Avoid watering a little every day, rather aim to water deeply every few days to encourage the roots to anchor themselves further into the soil. In pots and containers, one litre of water twice a week is normally enough, but if the foliage is drooping they need more water. Feeding – blend tomato fertiliser into the soil prior to planting, it does take a little time to settle into the soil. Once a month, drench young plants with Seasol to speed up the root and flower development. A healthy, vigorous root system provides the perfect platform for robust plants. Laterals – pinch them out as soon as they appear. If left on the plant they divert energy into growth that could be used to produce more fruit.

Remove tomato laterals as they appear, leaving them on diverts some of the plant’s energy away from producing more fruit.

Pollination Crop failure can sometimes be due to lack of pollination. With tomatoes, this is often the case when they are grown indoors where

Mixed planters are a great way to maximise space. These lettuce are come-again types, and hardy enough to be outdoors. The tomato is covered at night to protect it from late frosts.

North-facing walls are great for growing tomatoes; they provide welcome shelter from the wind and support.

bees and other pollinating insects are not as prevalent. For indoor plants, open doors regularly for air movements. Plant plenty of flowers and pollinating plants in the area. Grafted tomatoes Essentially, these are two plants grown as one. The variety (scion) is grafted onto a super vigorous and robust root stock, the combination of which produces a plant that has the ability to produce a larger crop of tomatoes. Grafted plants can produce double that of a normal variety. Because of the strong rootstock, the grafted tomatoes tend to have greater disease resistance and therefore minimal spraying is required. They are a little more expensive to buy, but, if you only have room for a handful of plants why not capitalise on getting twice the harvest in half the space? Note that all grafted tomatoes need secure staking; these plants are vigorous and strong, but do need support.

Staking and tying of tomatoes is important, the main trunks are not strong enough to stay upright on their own.

GARDENING Heirloom varieties While it is wonderful that the demand for good old-fashioned tomatoes has forced growers to produce seedlings of these tasty old-time favourites, it is useful to understand why the industry has been reluctant to grow heirloom varieties. They taste great and come in a range of shapes, colours and sizes, but most are not renowned for their fruiting capacity or durability to seasonal temperature and weather fluctuations, therefore the harvest is usually less. New hybrids are bred to fruit more reliably at home and cope in a wider range of climate. The best of cherry and berry cocktail tomatoes This season sees a wider range of cocktail tomatoes hit the shelves. Black, yellow and orange cherry tomatoes will all be available along with the traditional red ‘Sweet 100’ varieties and types. The sweetest of them all is ‘Tomaccio’ – the raisin tomato. Allow a bit of room for this one as it can reach 1.5-2m if left to its own devices. ‘Red Pear’ and ‘Yellow Pear’ are two smaller miniature varieties to seek out. Being bite-sized and pear-shaped, the fruit looks amazing in salads and the yellow one is especially sweet. The new red ‘Berry Tom’ proved its value last season with its supersweet mouth-sized fruits and this season sees the release of its cousin ‘Yellow Berry’, which is said to have the same great taste, but a yellow flesh and skin. Short and stout Compact knee-high varieties of tomatoes appeal to those who have smaller gardens and limited space. ‘Patio’ is a 60cm dwarf hybrid, which produces plenty of golf-ball-sized fruit on a compact plant. ‘Megabite’ is even more compact, only growing to 40cm, it produces

surprisingly large fruit for such a small plant, staking does help support this one as it has so many fruit. ‘Totem’ is another good one – it looks like its on steroids with heavily veined, pumped-up dark-green leaves and thumbnail to golf-ball-sized fruit. Man size Large, meaty, fist-sized tomatoes are not only impressive in size, but are also very flavoursome. ‘Big Beef ’ is a goodie that is highly disease resistant. ‘Beefsteak’ is probably the most well known and the name just speaks for itself. ‘Brandywine Pink’ takes a bit of beating for its flavour, and even though it is slow to ripen and not that prolific it’s well worth planting. ‘Oxheart’ is popular because of its size, meatiness, and low acidity. Saucy numbers If you are after some juicy, heavy cropping tomatoes for sauce, relish and soup look to reliable favourites, such as ‘Money Maker’, ‘Tasty Tom’, ‘Dr Walter’, ‘Roma’ and ‘Taupo’.

Yellow cherry tomatoes are super sweet and add a real blast of colour to summer salads and snacks.

NEW: Double-grafted cherry tomatoes

Oxheart is a giant-sized variety with plenty of flesh.

New this season! Old-time favourite ‘Sweet 100’, well-loved for producing hundreds of bright-red tomatoes, has teamed up with ‘Sungold’, a golden-orange cocktail hybrid. These plants are set to be a winner. Ideal options for a tub, but make sure it’s a good-sized one, as these plants will be fairly vigorous – 20 to 30 litres is ideal.

■Change the oil Oil is the engine’s lifeblood that removes contaminants, lubricates parts and dissipates heat. That’s why it’s important to make sure the crankcase contains an adequate supply of fresh oil. Before changing the oil, run the engine for several minutes until it warms up. Then, stop the engine, disconnect the spark plug and drain the oil into a pan or similar container. Refill the crankcase with high quality detergent oil that has a SG/CD classification on the label. Take the used oil to a local recycling center. It’s environmentally unfriendly-and illegal-to dump used motor oil on the ground or into a storm drain. ■ Check the air filter Your air-cooled engine needs a constant supply of clean air. If your mower engine takes a disposable paper filter, simply replace it with a new filter. If the engine requires a foam-type filter, remove the sponge from the filter assembly, soak it in a pan of warm water and squeeze it dry. Then apply a few drops of clean oil into the sponge and place it back in the filter assembly. ■ Use fresh fuel Gasoline turns stale after about 60 days and can form gum in your engine’s carburetor, resulting in expensive repairs. Eliminate the problem by routinely filling your engine’s tank with fresh fuel. If gas must remain in the tank for a prolonged period of time, add a fuel stabilizer to keep it fresh and to ensure a clean fuel system that leads to easier starting.

■Keep things clean While you’re checking the blade, remove any dirt and cakedon grass from under the mower deck. Squirt some vegetable oil cooking spray under the deck to reduce clipping build-up and to prevent rust. This will also save you a lot of work when cleaning the mower after each use. You’ll also want to have your mower tuned up annually to keep it running smoothly and efficiently.

GEOMETRICAL COLOUR IN HOME INTERIORS

Monochromatic painted interior walls with colour introduced through accessories, a feature wall or curtains, is still very fashionable.

I

t is also a practical approach to home furnishing, with it safer to choose neutral colours on permanent surfaces than commit to strong colours that might date, incurring cost and time in re-painting. Even wallpapering a feature wall commits

to a certain design and colour. It is therefore safer and a more affordable way to bring colour into the home through accessories of cushions, rugs, throws, runners, lampshades, bowls, vases, pictures on the wall and even flowers. In the bedroom, the bedspread is a great

place to start along with a brightly coloured bookcase or one striking chair which might also be placed in a living area. It might be a way to rescue an old favourite or useful piece of furniture. Start with just one colour and go from there. Mix blends of the primary colours red, blue or yellow. These blends of colours sit alongside each other on the colour wheel, such as oranges through to yellows. Contrast with blends of colours from the opposite side of the colour wheel, bringing in blues, aqua or green. Bright and cheery is all the rage with contrasting colours like red and black looking great together. However, there may also be rooms where a more peaceful feel is desired, and there is no one style rule for décor though geometrical shapes and designs are trendy at present. What was fashionable for wearing has followed through to home interiors. Floral patterns and retro geometrical shapes have emerged in home furnishings and furniture design along with a blend of textures.

Classic and contemporary design ideas are still popular, and it is acceptable to add a touch of ethnicity or merge contemporary with vintage or antique as has been seen with the metallic industrial style. One main trend coming through is that of creating a statement with a splash of vivid, bold colour in a feature piece or accessories, especially in work and living areas, allowing the personality and flare of the homeowner to come to the fore.

herbs are all suitable in these gardens and they lift the height of the plants, making them more easily viewed. Dwarf fruit trees and berry vines, including raspberries, loganberries and boysenberries, can also be grown in these, breaking up a large garden while adding interest to the landscaping. Many people find it easier to tend a raised garden, especially if the bed is not too large, making them helpful for those who have trouble bending or kneeling if there is a wide piece of timber on top to sit while gardening. Soil warms up more quickly in spring when the garden bed is raised, assisting early growth. The soil can also dry out in warmer weather, necessitating regular watering with a sprinkler, soaker hose or fitted timer-controlled irrigation system. Raised garden beds can be simply made by piling soil higher than the ground without a border or even just with straw or hay outside. They are also constructed out of wood, concrete, stone, metal or another hard

material with ready-made containers available at hardware stores and nurseries. When building a raised bed, use a durable timber like macrocarpa, cedar or railway sleepers, and avoid using treated timber that could leach chemicals into the soil. To prevent weeds or roots from nearby plants coming up through the garden bed, lay newspaper or old carpet on the base, taking account of the need for space with deeper rooting plants. Once constructed, fill the garden bed with good soil mixed with high-quality compost so plant growth is encouraged, fertilising at least annually. Plant out then avoid walking on the garden so the soil stays light and aerated. Use straw, sawdust or grass clippings such as mulch so moisture is retained, layering extra mulch as needed especially in winter to protect the soil. For ideas and a guide to constructing a raised garden bed, check out the numerous internet sites that feature examples, measurements and building instructions.

Featuring water in the garden

Sitting in the garden looking out over a pond or listening to the sound of water is a very relaxing pastime.

A

water feature might be natural where a creek or water race runs through a property or created. A large variety of commercially produced features are available in all shapes, sizes and styles from ready-made to parts suitable for a do-it-yourself project. New or secondhand materials, including pottery, floating pots and natural materials like rocks might all contribute to the final design with inspiration gained from searching hardware stores, garden supply outlets, wreckers’ yards and the internet. If child safety is important, then a fountain where water dribbles down into shingle is a good choice. Alternatively, water cascading down a stone wall or out of a pot, moulded concrete shape or large ball can look great, especially if flowing into a pond or swimming pool. Many water features are easily set up. However, a registered electrician should install any wiring to ensure it is safe and

code compliant. Keeping a plan on where wires are buried will also mean safe operation during future major work like digging out a tree and prevent damage to the wiring. If building a new home, consult the electrician about preliminary wiring for the water feature at the time of construction. This is more economic as the electrician is already on-site. If impractical to do this due to the potential for damage to the wiring, then factor this work in at the time of landscaping, even if the water feature is erected later. Alternatively, a solar-operated pump might be used and more suitable in an existing garden, or where the water feature will be a distance from the power source. When adding in water plants, water weed will aerate and ensure healthy water in a pond, while water lilies, irises, reeds and floating bog plants all add interest and beauty.

CREATING MEMORIES

Ever since she worked in hospitality and before becoming a mother, Sue Giddens had dreamed of opening her own restaurant.

“I

wanted to devote my time to raising my three girls so operating a restaurant was not an option at that point,” says Sue. As her daughters grew up, Sue and husband Chris began looking for a property that offered the potential for a restaurant

business, eventually finding what was to become their dream home. “The property had the bones but it required a lot of work,” confesses Sue. “When the girls saw the place, they thought we were mad. It had been a nursery and then a furniture maker who did some antique

Memorys Restaurant, located on the road to Leeston just out of Springston, is set in a unique and delightful setting. It is suitable for any occasion whether a short break over a hot cuppa, lunch or an intimate group gathering for a special occasion. Memorys Restaurant is a place for creating wonderful memories of times shared, meals enjoyed and peaceful places.

restoration owned the property. It was in a pretty sad state with the grounds completely overgrown with weeds, waste high in places and piles of rubbish.” Sue and Chris spent many hours turning the overgrown garden into a place of beauty and tranquillity, as well as creating herb and potager gardens to provide fresh produce for the restaurant. The windowless nursery sheds were converted into useful buildings, with materials such as old windows sourced from wreckers’ yards while recycled bricks were used for paths and paved courtyards. “We saved wood destined for the scrap heap. I fossicked through antique and secondhand shops along with hours spent trawling Trade Me for treasures,” reminisces Sue who collected curious memorabilia for around the gardens and inside the restaurant buildings. There was so much work to do that holidays were replaced by the occasional long weekend. Seven years later with their dream realised, Sue felt it was time to share what they had created with others. “It’s been a wonderful journey and I feel privileged. We’re the curators of a beautiful setting which should be shared with others. I want our restaurant and garden to be lovely and something everyone can enjoy,” adds Sue who operates the restaurant in partnership with daughter Emma. Aptly named Memorys Restaurant where wonderful memories are created, it will be the setting for the wedding of Sue and Chris’ youngest daughter, leading to another wonderful memory being created for the family.

A SMART WAY OF

IRRIGATING

P

hil Hudson was looking for a challenge when the opportunity came up for him to take over Freeman Irrigation. That was eleven years ago and the company has now been serving Canterbury for three decades with five workers now employed. “I have always been interested in landscaping,” says Phil who owns the company with wife Kristie. Phil and his team are experts in designing, supplying and installing fully automated irrigation systems for residential and business. This includes: lawns and gardens, lifestyle blocks, commercial premises, parks and reserves, horticulture, golf

courses, subdivisions and semi-rural irrigation requirements. In fact, Freeman Irrigation can help with almost any irrigation needs. They use top quality components, fittings and pipes that meet industry standards, such as Toro and Hunter which are leaders in the irrigation field. “When we install, we don’t trench up with a digger. Instead, we use a mole plough to install our system which doesn’t make a mess,” advises Phil, who adds that they enjoy seeing their clients satisfied with their irrigation system. A Freeman Irrigation system works on a timer that controls the irrigating. It is set to

water early morning to capitalise on better water pressure and minimise the effect of wind or evaporation. This results in water savings and lessens the potential for the hot sun to etch water droplets into the glass. Of course, an automated system also means even watering and saves time by avoiding the need to traipse around the garden with a hose while it still gets watered when the family is away on holiday without imposing on relatives, friends or a neighbour to hose the garden. Phil and his team backup their workmanship and provide a maintenance service for existing systems, which he recommends is carried

out annually. This involves them flushing the system to clear blockages and replacing damaged parts. “It is often a good idea to do this late spring though some clients have a clean out early autumn as well,” says Phil. “This sorts out any wear and tear or damage caused by tradespeople working around the yard, such as when fibre optic cabling is installed.” Freeman Irrigation is Rolleston-based, servicing all of Canterbury and specialising in the Selwyn area, so why not call Phil or Kristie for a free quote on 0800 223 392, or email info@freemanirrigation.co.nz.

Holden Astra brings back memories IF, LIKE me, and you have a few years behind you, the name Astra probably brings back a few memories. It’s long been a nameplate from the General Motors Europe and Holden Australia stables. Generally it’s been a small-to-midsize hatchback, sedan and wagon, and has been marketed in New Zealand off and on over the years under Opel and Holden badges. Well, Astra is back. As part of a programme to supply a comprehensive range of models when the Australian manufacturing facilities close down in 2017, Holden is looking long-term at sourcing some European cars for the New Zealand market. Initially, the new Astra lands in three-door hatchback form, although other variants are a certainty in the near future. The Astra hatch is available here in three variants – GTC, GTC Sport, and VXR – the test car was the entry-level GTC at $39,990, while the high performance 2-litre turbocharged model is priced at $49,990, it will be the subject of an evaluation in this column later this year. The GTC Sport adds big wheels, leather trim, sports body kit, and a few other items of specification. That package adds $3000 to the price which, to me, represents good value. The GTC in both forms also

SPECIFICATIONS

gets a turbocharged engine, but its displacement is 1.6-litre, and not to be confused with the fabulous 1598cc unit that is fitted to Holden’s Korean-sourced product, notably Cruze and Trax turbo. Nevertheless, the Astra’s unit is just as tempting, it is amazingly smooth, delivers its power at usable parts of the rev band, and supplies good performance without gobbling fuel. In terms of figures, the Astra’s power plant is a little confusing given there are different power outputs for manual and automatic transmission. The automatic Astra GTC and GTC Sport get 125kW and 260Nm, while the manual variants get 147kW and 280Nm. For interest’s sake, the VXR gets 206kW and 400Nm. These are all healthy figures and indicate that the Astra is a genuine hot hatchback. The GTC evaluation car was fitted with the automatic gearbox option. That wasn’t a detraction, although I’m hoping to drive the manual at some point, and

Price: Holden Astra GTC, $39,990. Dimensions: Length,4466mm; width, 1840mm; height, 1482mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, front-wheel-drive, 1598cc, 125kW, 260Nm, sixspeed automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 8.5sec.

HOLDEN ASTRA GTC: Economical yet feisty turbocharged engine. because the range is new to New Zealand there is plenty of time for that to happen. The GTC auto also gets a healthy 7.5-litre per 100km (38mpg) combined cycle fuel usage claim. That correlates well with the 9l/100km (31mpg) figure showing on the trip computer during my testing time. It will also record an instantaneous 7l/100km (40mpg) figure travelling at 100km/h in sixth gear (engine speed 2000rpm). The Astra GTC is also an accomplished handler. It isn’t overly firmed underneath, but because the roofline is low (1.48m) there isn’t a lot of gravitational move-

ment over the suspension, so the body stays flat and controlled in a corner. And at under 1500kg there isn’t a lot of weight transfer in the first instance. Riding on 235/50 x 18in Continental tyres, there is a lot of rubber on the road, consequently grip is high, there is a strong turn-in through the steering, and feedback to the steering wheel is constantly involving. For its money the Astra GTC lands with a good level of specification, and it has kit we have become used to in Cruze, Commodore and other Holden products here. Notably MyLink is fitted and it is the platform for

communication, information and entertainment services. It also has satellite navigation and cruise control with speed limiter. For safety, all Astras have the kit which earn it a five-star safety rating Styling-wise the Astra in hatchback form looks sporty, its big wheels and flowing lines combine to make an appealing shape. That’s no surprise, General Motors’ European product has always been dynamic, and if this is something that we can look forward to from 2017 onwards, then I’m really looking forward to further product arriving here. In the interim I’m excited to about my impending drive in the VRX. As a car it competes firmly with the quick cars that ply the serious hot hatch market. But if your budget can’t stretch that far, the GTC in both Sport and non-Sport variations is a worthy substitute.

PROPERTY VALUES IN SELWYN

There has been quite a lot of comments from the media about inflated property values with special mention of Auckland and Christchurch.

P

roperty price hikes in Christchurch and its nearby areas have mostly been attributable to the earthquakes. Many red zone migrants relocated out of the city and an influx of rebuild workers provided a need for more housing. Both factors led to an increase of housing stock in the towns of Selwyn, especially those sitting near the city boundary. More building activity saw section prices rise and an increase in building costs. Some ridiculous prices were also received for existing homes due to frantic bidding by people desperate to be resettled. The overall effect was an impressive increase in property values in the towns of Selwyn that are close to Christchurch.

It is inevitable that a period of market turbulence will be followed by a levelling off, and local real estate agents are reporting that the market is stabilising. “We are turning to a more normal market with prices settling,” says Sarah Booth from Ray White Real Estate, Rolleston. “When there are a lot of similar houses in the market, by offering features in a property that make it stand out such as tiled showers, stone bench top rather than laminate, a walk-in pantry and triple car garaging, it is likely to attract more buyers and may achieve a better price.” “Properties are selling for fair prices however, we’re no longer seeing the inflated prices that some properties sold for a couple of years ago. If a house is priced correctly for
