Work ramps up for Rolleston College Construction of the district’s next high school, Rolleston College, is progressing at pace. Contractors recently started pouring concrete for the foundations of the two-storey building, which will provide a modern learning environment for students. Hawkins Construction project manager Ivan Hatton said that pouring the foundations always marked an important milestone in any project. “We have done a lot of work on this site to get to this point, so it

is nice to see the concrete trucks coming in.” The college is scheduled to be completed over the next year, ready to open in 2017. It will have room for up to 1100 students, with the capacity to build for a future roll of up to 1800 students. Mr Hatton said his teams had completed some significant earthworks to create the footprint for the school and the sports fields. This included removing large portions of softer sand-based soil under the building area to be used

in the fields and replacing this with gravel from the outer areas to create a stronger, hard-fill base for the actual construction site. “By doing this we create the best soil conditions for both the building and the fields.” Because of the dry and windy spring, Mr Hatton said the team had been working over-time to avoid any inconvenience for nearby residents. “We have watering trucks on site seven days a week, to avoid any dust, even when we are not working on the site. We are also

putting down fast-growing grass seed on the outer areas to temporarily cover the soil.” Establishment board of trustees chairwoman Jackie Freeman said progress was also being made away from the construction site. “The board is continuing to meet very regularly and one important topic currently being considered by the board is the school’s uniform,” she said. A community drop in session for parents to meet principal Steve Saville will be held on November 26.

Expect the unexpected when driving on rural roads. That’s the message the district council is hoping to get across with a new road safety campaign reminding drivers to slow down and be ready to brake – especially near corners, roadworks, wandering stock or farm machinery. Between 2010 and 2014, there were 164 crashes in Selwyn where speed was a contributing factor. These resulted in nine fatalities, 40 serious injuries and 69 minor injuries. Of these, 85 per cent occurred on open roads with 65 per cent involving drivers losing control when going around a bend. District road safety co-ordinator Ngaire Tinning said it was important for people to understand that travelling too fast didn’t always mean travelling over the speed limit, particularly when there were obstructions on the road ahead. “Many accidents are caused by motorists driving too fast for the conditions. Being aware of your surroundings and slowing down before going around a bend allows you time to stop if you need to.” The campaign will run during October and November. It includes an educational video, radio and newspaper advertising, and giveaways of pens and packs of tissues with educational messages.

Selwyn fastest growing district for eighth year BY TOM DOUDNEY

For the eighth year in a row, Selwyn is the country’s fastest growing district. Selwyn was in a league of its own for the year ending June 30, adding 3200 people to its population count to grow by a whopping 6.5 per cent, recently released Statistics New Zealand data shows. The next fastest growing districts were Queenstown Lakes (4.9 per cent) and Waimakariri (3.6 per cent). The data shows growth has

ramped up from the previous 12 months, when the district grew by 5.9 per cent. Deputy Mayor Sarah Walters (right) said the availability of urban and commercial land within a short driving distance of Christchurch, as well as the infrastructure being put in place to support growth, meant Selwyn remained an attractive place for people and businesses to move to.

However, she said the district council was expecting growth to begin tailing off some time in the next few years. “Our growth modelling hasn’t changed the number of people we expect to be living in Selwyn in 2041, which was the timeframe of the Urban Development Strategy. It’s just that they are coming earlier. So that growth model would definitely predict there is going to a slowing down.” But for now the number of Land Information Memorandums being requested remained at a

consistently highly level as it had done for the past few years, Cr Walters said. Overall, the South Island population grew by 17,900 (1.7 per cent), slightly more than the increase of 15,700 (1.5 percent) in the previous year. The South Island’s total increase was made up of natural increase of 3800 and net migration of 14,100. Of that, 62 per cent came from Selwn, Waimakariri and Christchurch. Christchurch’s population grew by 5900 (1.6 per cent).

Pupil’s artwork to feature on Google homepage A drawing by Rolleston School pupil Oliver Lonsdale, 8, has won the national Doodle 4 Google competition and will now be featured on Google New Zealand’s web page for 24 hours. Oliver’s drawing beat out more than 7000 entries from around the country. His was initially confirmed as the winning year 1 - 3 entry after receiving more public votes than any other design in that category. The judges then chose his design as the best from the four different age groups. As a result, Oliver will receive a free Chromebook laptop and Rolleston School will get $10,000 worth of technol-

New principal Prebbleton School has appointed its new principal, to take over from Mike Hogan, who finished at the end of last term. Kim Alexander, who is currently principal of Redcliffs School in Christchurch, will start at the beginning of 2016. Ms Alexander said the potential closure of Redcliffs School was not a factor in her decision. Selwyn anniversary Last week’s article in the Selwyn Times about Southbridge’s 150th anniversary mentioned other settlements which had celebrated the same milestone within the last few years. One settlement not mentioned was Selwyn, from which the district gets its name. It was founded in 1862, the same year as Prebbleton, and its 150th anniversary was in 2012. Secret Garden co-ordinator The Springston Enviro Community is looking for a new volunteer community garden co-ordinator. Zanada McLean is leaving the role after three years. Known as the ‘Secret Garden’ it is connected to Springston School via a back gate. The role involves organising programmes and workshops, garden fun days, and generally co-ordinating the planting, weeding and running of the garden. The garden is a Selwyn Timebank member, so there is the potential to earn time credits. Phone Sue Jarvis on 329 5858, 021 100 1009 or sue. jarvis@orcon.net.nz for more information.

OUR PEOPLE

​Still teaching for the love of it Rosaline Brown has been teaching children in Ellesmere for 64 years, working in both the secular and religious education fields. She spoke to reporter Tom Doudney about why she is still teaching, religion’s place in the classroom and her father the conscientious objector.

AT HOME: Rosaline Brown has lived all her life in the Ellesmere area and played an active part in the community as a teacher, kaumatua and member of the local historical society. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

When did you start teaching and how old would you have been then? I started at Southbridge in 1952 when I was 20. And you’re still teaching now? I teach Christian religious education – which used to be called Bible in schools. I teach three classes at Leeston School, which is handy because it’s just across the road from me, and a lunchtime programme at Dunsandel School. How old are you now, if you don’t mind me asking? Eighty-four. I finished paid employment about four years ago – I was beginning to think I might be setting records! That’s a good stretch of teaching. Well, I did stop for about 12 years because I had five children so it hasn’t been continuous – although I still did relief teaching most of that time. Have you been teaching in the Ellesmere area that whole time?

Yes, I have always lived locally and everything I have done in my life has been in this little circle in the Ellesmere district. I am a Southbridge girl at heart and I had all my education here. I started teaching in Southbridge, which was a district high school at that stage. I taught there for one year, then I came to Leeston where I taught for four years and got married. Then I went back to teaching at Southbridge for 22 years. I came back in 1968, just as the school was having its centenary. What subjects did you teach when you were full time? When I taught at the Southbridge District High School I was teaching art and a range of things like English and social studies. I have been school team leader – which sounds a bit like the Topp Twins – of Christian religious education in the Ellesmere area since about 1993.

after 64 years in Ellesmere You presumably don’t need to keep teaching these days. What makes you want to keep doing it? I like kids. I have just taken on a new class at Leeston. Some of the children I teach are the younger brothers and sisters of other children I have already taught. And I have always tried to look after the children with learning and behavioural difficulties. Has religion always been an important part of your life? Yes, I belong to the Ellesmere Anglican Parish, and I have various roles there. The little church at Sedgemere is my home church but it has infrequent services. What is it about history that is so interesting to you? It concerns people and places and I think it enriches your life if you have that background and an appreciation of what our forebears did. Even when I was a child at Southbridge School I remember being called the old-fashioned girl. Teaching religion in schools can be a little bit controversial these days – some people say religion should be kept out of the classroom. How do you feel about that? I have got a very good teaching team here but I am aware that in some places religious teachers are not sticking to the syllabus and are

ELDERS: Rosaline Brown, second from left, with fellow Ngati Moki kaumatua Denise Sheat, Daphne O’Connell and Margaret Jones, on the beach near Taumutu.

What are the biggest changes you’ve seen in the Ellesmere area during your lifetime? People are much more mobile than they used to be. When I was young in Southbridge you knew who lived in every house – and they stayed there. There aren’t as many of the families that have lived here since time immemorial as there used to be, but there are still a lot of them. I would say the communities here are still quite caring. Here in Leeston, there is a woman who quite often leaves my newspaper at the front door with the wrapper already taken off. I suppose you would have been

putting their own spin on it and trying to convert children, which is not part of the programme we are supposed to follow. The programme we are supposed to follow is very much about teaching core values and leaving children to make up their own minds. Noah’s Ark, for instance, or Moses and the bulrushes, or the prodigal son, or the good Samaritan – these are all part of our culture and it is a valuable part of children’s education. Definitely parents have the right to decide whether their children take part or not and I am very much in favour of that.

quite young when all the men were going off to World War 2. Do you remember that? I was only about eight when the war started. My father was a conscientious objector so I had a different wartime experience from many. He wasn’t put in a camp or anything like that, he went up in front of the parole board and his beliefs were treated as being genuine. The soldiers who went to World War 2 were not part of my age group. I know conscientious objectors were sometimes spurned and not well treated. Did your family have any problems because of that? By and large we were pretty reasonably treated, I think because the local people did know he was genuine in his beliefs. What are the most important things in life? My family – I have got a pretty marvellous family. Also my church and the Ngati Moki Marae at Taumutu. I have had five children, 10 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Our youngest son was killed in a horse riding accident when he was 17 so I have four surviving children. How did you meet your husband Rewi?

We were in the third form at the Southbridge District High School – that was the beginning of our contact. And when did you start going out? When I did my last year of secondary schooling at Christchurch Girls’ High School. Then I went off to teachers’ college and he was worried I was going to find somebody there that I liked better than him. Obviously that didn’t happen though. There were a scruffy lot of males actually! When were you married? 1956. He died in 1991. What are some of your interests? History in particular. I belong to the Ellesmere Historical Society and I am a member of the Southbridge 150th Committee. Probably one of my other hobbies really is cooking. I have done a lot of feeding men working out in the paddocks, cooking at the marae for groups we cater for and with my church hat on for various things. When you’re cooking, what is your speciality? Scrumpy scroodles. They are little savouries which I have given to countless people, and I’m always asked for the recipe.

Firefighters spill on call-outs The Fire Service fields about 105,000 calls to its Southern Communications Centre a year. While a lot of their work is serious, Tom Doudney and Shelley Robinson asked fire stations around Canterbury for their more unusual call-outs. They include a nasty incident involving a man’s nether regions and a flying fox, and the time a parachuting Santa got stuck in a tree A MAN’S nether regions caught in a flying fox, children stuck in skate bowls, a parachuting Santa dangling from trees, a fireman stripping down to his undies to rescue a boy’s bicycle and a “tea” incident that sparked a drug callout. These are just some of the more amusing and unusual incidents fire personnel have had to deal with over the years. Fire personnel from around Canterbury reckon they have heard it all and perhaps seen more than they ought. That is not to downplay the vital role they have every day, saving people from car wrecks and fires. But once in a while, they get a call-out that gives them a bit of light relief from a job that can be harrowing. Tuesday marked the sixth duckling rescue in two weeks. Seven out of nine ducklings were rescued by Woolston firefighters after falling down a drain in Dalziel Place. While most would wonder at what kind of duckling mother would lead her children to fall to their death, senior fire risk

managment officer Mark Thomas (below) said it is very common at this time of the year. Less common is saving men who have got snared in flying foxes. Mr Thomas recalled a rather “stoic” man who waited gingerly for the Harewood fire station in 2010 to rescue his nether regions which were ensnared in the clutches of a flying fox at Bishopdale Park. “The man had tried the flying fox only to have the mechanism move enough as he hit the stop to trap a very personal part of his anatomy. “The fire crew had to dismantle the seat, freeing him to the sympathetic hands of the ambulance officers,” he said. The man reportedly was left fully intact. The flying fox was altered to ensure it did not claim another victim.

river, so I stripped down to my undies to get his bike out,” he said. “I think it was more traumatic for the people who saw me in my undies,” he said. The Fire Service saved Christmas about 20 years ago after rescuing a rather embarrassed Santa dangling from the trees in Rhodes Park Domain, Tai Tapu. Perhaps the reindeer were on strike, forcing Santa to look at other travel methods to Tai Tapu children’s Christmas party. Whatever the reason, Santa leapt from a plane, but his parachute got caught in trees. Continued, page 8

Mr Thomas said: “It is a very deep bowl and when it gets wet it has very slippery sides. The shorter kids get stuck in there. We stick a ladder down the side and get them out. “Hopefully, most mates would at least try to get them out first, instead of just peering over the side at them.” In his earlier years, Mr Thomas remembers a panic-stricken child who waved down a fire truck. His bicycle had sunk in the river. “He’d been jumping his bike into the

Stories you wouldn’t expect Continued from page 7 Lincoln Chief Fire Officer Jeremy Greenwood recalled the incident. “The wind caught him and blew him into some trees where he got stuck. They had to call in a fire truck with a big turntable ladder from town to get him down,” he said. But to be fair to the big fella, he is not the only person to be snared by a tree. About 10 years ago, Darfield Chief Fire Officer Alan Kittelty remembered saving a parachutist from a tree. “He had obviously had no control over the direction of his parachute and ended up suspended several metres above the ground with the parachute in the branches,” he said. The fella hung from the tree for about an hour until he was plucked out and escorted down a ladder. But if you have a cat up the tree it may pay not to call the Southbridge fire station. Chief Fire Officer Donald McMillian said unlike other brigades it does not respond to these calls – for a very sensible reason. “We always say ‘have you ever seen a dead cat up a tree? Because cats always get down again. “We tell the owners to go away and ignore them and they will come down when they are ready,” he said.

CATS AND TREES: Southbridge Chief Fire Officer Donald McMillan says they do not attend call-outs of cats up trees: “Have you ever seen a dead cat up a tree?”. Right: Woolston firefighters rescue ducklings which fell down a storm drain. However, they will help if there is a parrot in a tree. They have rescued two parrots, one nine years ago, another this year. They used their hoses to “blow” the birds out of the tree. “There was no alternative really. We were right at our limits to try and blow them out,” he said. The pet birds were drenched but soon recovered, he said. One pet incident was more emotional for attending firefighters than humorous. Southern communications shift manager Riwai Grace said the Fire Service helped an elderly woman whose cat had got stuck in the wall near the boiler.

It was so hot in the wall that the firefighters could smell the cat getting a “bit warm”. The woman was distraught because the cat was her only companion. She had no family or friends. The woman was taken into the kitchen and soothed by firefighters with a cup of tea to spare her from the cries of the cat being rescued. The cat was “yanked” out of the wall and was remarkably unharmed, said Mr Grace. “It was quite emotional for the boys. This woman had no-one else but her cat. That’s why I love what we do, because we can help. You never know what will happen and that is what inspires me to keep

coming back to work every day,” he said. Sometimes, as a South Canterbury station found out, it pays to be careful how you pronounce the word “tea”. Dunsandel Chief Fire Officer Ian Chatterton recalled that a fire station responded to a call-out for a minor stove top fire in a house. “The person who called it in said they were cooking “tea”. However, the comms people thought they said they were cooking P (methamphetamine), so the police and drug squad also turned up to the event,” he said. Shift manager Andrew Norris said the most expensive animal

call-out he can remember was when two horses were stuck in Governors Bay. Four appliances, from three fire stations plus a helicopter took 13 hours to free the animals. The horses got stuck in “deep mud” by the beach. Firefighters from Lyttelton, Addington and Governors Bay pushed and dug but could only move the horses 20m. In the end a helicopter was used to lift each horse to the beach in a “matter of minutes”. Mr Norris did not know the final cost but with 71 “man hours” plus $1600 an hour for the helicopter, it would have “been big”. Hands are regularly stuck where they ought not to get stuck, such as a woman at the Prebbleton Tavern who got her hand stuck in a pool table, and a woman who got her arm clamped in a post box in South Brighton. But the thing most firefighters were wary of is having to call the Fire Service themselves. Mr Grace said once he nearly had to call his colleagues because the toilet door handle came off, trapping him. To his immense relief, he got out without having to call in his colleagues. He would have got “fined”. “Usually you have to do some baking for everyone or do something for the crew. But the ribbing you get, that lasts a lifetime,” he said.

Managing your water through another dry summer The irrigation season is now underway. Predictions point to another hot, dry summer, so managing your water allocation well will be key. There’s more to it than ramping up irrigation when it’s hot or near the end of the season. Irrigators need to start the season well, maintain performance and find out where you can save on operating costs.

Finding out what your irrigator is applying is the first step – systems can be 20%-30% out. Some simple early season calibration checks and maintenance can save a lot of water over the season.

A number of small, simple changes will make a big difference towards making sure your irrigation volume will see you through to March.

Applying the right amount of water at the right time improves production and reduces the amount of irrigation required. “Timing is everything in a marginal season. It’s about being able to plan and make decisions based on the right information,” says IrrigationNZ Project Manager Steve Breneger.

Inefficient irrigation at the start of the season can have a significant impact on seasonal sustainability: • Using more water than you need, shortening your seasonal volume • Reducing productivity – a single saturation can limit grass growth for up to 3 days

IrrigationNZ can provide advice. Support is also available through DairyNZ, which is currently running a Tactics campaign bringing together tools, tips and tactics to help you survive and thrive in a low milk price season.

Sustainably Managed, Accountable, Responsible and Trusted Irrigation

Irrigators are encouraged to take these steps: • Make sure your irrigation systems are correctly calibrated – use IrrigationNZ or DairyNZ resources to help with calibration • Find out how much water you are using and how you’re tracking in relation to your seasonal allocation • Make sure all applications are correctly scheduled; that you’re putting on the right amount of water at the right time to get the best value possible from your irrigation water and energy Contacts for help • IrrigationNZ – www.irrigationnz.co.nz • DairyNZ - Angela Harvey, 021 246 2185, 03 321 9035, angela.harvey@dairynz.co.nz • Your irrigation scheme

New direction for popular music store The long-established Christchurch music store, Begg’s Music, is heading in an exciting new direction. As from the end of October, the store will be doing business from its new premises in Sydenham – operating as an outlet store. “The main reason for the move is that we need more space,” says Grant Bargrove, who has owned and run the popular music store for almost 30 years. One of the city’s oldest and most respected businesses, Begg’s dates back to the 1800s and since then has been providing instruments and other musical requirements for generations of keen musicians. The store moved into South City four years ago, after the earthquakes severely damaged the Colombo Street building it had occupied for the previous 25 years. The move to the new, larger premises this month allowing the change to the outlet concept, will mean much cheaper prices for customers, says Grant. Almost all the stock will be directly imported by Begg’s Music and displayed in an industrial environment, which will see examples of the various instruments on display and the bulk of the stock boxed up ready for customers to pick up and take home. With the larger premises providing more storage space, Begg’s Music will be getting back into pianos, says Grant. “We will be bringing them in directly by the container load. The interest in pianos has reignited, and we will have the space to showcase them, plus the building will be temperature controlled for the pianos.” Begg’s Music is also a supplier of Fender guitars, and will have an extensive range at the new outlet store, which also includes a fully equipped workshop. And with recording and live sound a growth area of the music industry, amplifiers are another key product for Begg’s Music, Grant says.

“We also hope to have live music on the premises from time to time.” Begg’s Music is very much a family concern, with Grant’s wife Cynthia responsible for the accounts and administration, and their three children, aged 12 to 19, and Grant’s parents all involved. Cynthia’s property management business also has its office in the new location. Begg’s Music Outlet Store is located at 53 Brisbane Street, on the corner of Brisbane and Wordsworth streets, with plenty of off-street parking. The South City store will close on October 18 and the new outlet store will open on October 31, and will operate from Tuesday to Saturday.

Sniffing the smells after Star Media journalist Fraser Walker-Pearce has never known the sensation of smell – until now, thanks to a the marvels of modern science I GET the sense that people think it’s their God given right to be able to take a big sniff of fresh air, hold it, and release. But for me, it was never like that. You see, before last month I’ve never been able to properly smell, due to some fairly serious allergies, poor sinuses and airway issues. But thanks to a short procedure, I can now enjoy the wondrous smells of a butter chicken curry, popcorn chicken, and Caramello chocolate. Everything is in balance though, with the unpleasant odours of my gym gear, brussels sprouts and wet dogs. I started my schooling life at Mount Pleasant School, where the THE BAD: Fraser Walker-Pearce can now smell all kinds of things, and isn’t that pleased that he can smell the teacher would regularly bring in nasty aromas. wonderfully scented candles (or so it never stopped me telling them there was something wrong. I was told), which would: “enhance mostly bad. Kids at my school just assumed I could. “I think we’ll send you to the the learning space.” that because of my lack of smell, I I graduated from Mount Pleasspecialist,” she said. But I never smelled them. Most must have another super-sense. ant and moved into my first year Great, I thought.

cated way of saying he was an ear, nose and throat surgeon. He was nice enough, and mum and dad were certainly pleased that dad’s company covered my health insurance, and therefore the $350 consultation fee. However, the surgeon said that he could only perform a procedure that would slow down the cause of my sinus headaches and hay fever, until I had stopped growing – and then he could give me a sense of smell. So we went ahead with that procedure in 2011, and it was successful. Over the next four years, familiar signs and symptoms slowly crept back into my everyday life, as we expected. The turbinates in my nose were cauterized during the 2011 procedure, in an attempt to slow down the amount of infections I was getting. But over time, the fleshy part of my nose that was cauterized, regrew and became just as susceptible to infection, headaches and hay fever; and was regularly giving me sinus-related headaches. At one point in 2014, during my last year of high school, I was getting painful headaches almost every day in particular parts of my head. They ran from the front of my forehead, down past my eyes, and connected up in the middle of my nose. If you’d put a heat sensor over me, I would’ve looked like I was wearing snow goggles.

life-changing operation feeling of maybe I could actually put up with not smelling forever if I was going to have a camera to the nose every time, and a $4000 operation at Forte Health hospital, also covered by dad’s work. When we met with the surgeon next, he took me through the procedure he was planning for me. He told me it was called septoplasty and turbinate reduction surgery, and meant he would have to break my nose, in order to realign my septum. He would then trim back the turbinates inside my nose, so that the airways could become more open, to allow air and anything else up there. I was put under general anaesthetic for the 45min operation, and awoke in the recovery room after a further 45min or so. I was so drugged up from the anaesthetic and God knows what else, that when I woke to the nurse asking if I was okay, I sat up and replied, “I’m going great. Actually, fantastic. How are you going?” Not my proudest moment. I was sent home after an overnight stay at the hospital to recover in bed for two weeks. After about 10 days of a drip catcher attached to the end of my nose, I woke for the first time after the operation in no pain. I got out of bed and stood outside. My nose filled with the most crisp, cool and refreshing breath of air I will ever take. To anybody watching, I must’ve looked like I’d escaped from an

I was sick of it, my parents were sick of my whining, and they were also sick of sending me to the doctor every few weeks for yet another round of antibiotics that would sometimes work. So we met with the “nice enough otolaryngologist”, in his expensive looking office again in July, 2015. He said he was pleased with the outcome of the 2011 surgery, and was confident that if he put a long thin camera inside my nose, he would be able to tell me if he thought I was ready for the crucial smell-giving surgery. Reluctantly, I agreed. What he had omitted from telling me was that it would feel like he would be scratching my brain with the camera. Oh, and the local anaesthetic he had just given me, would only last for a minute or so. While he was abusing my nose, the “nice” surgeon was joking to my mum, “Hmm, haven’t seen that before,” amongst other notfunny lines. Meanwhile, I felt like vomiting. The surgeon said: “Fraser, you’ve got a deviated septum.” I was taken aback, I mean, I know I’m not perfect, but I never thought I was deviated. Once I’d learned what a septum was, and then what a deviated septum was, I calmed down a little bit and listened to what he had to say. He said the outcome of the abuse would be another $350 consultation bill for dad’s work, a

asylum. But, honestly that first breath of fresh air was just amazing. You may not think air has a distinct smell, but take it from me, it definitely does. The surgery was successful. I was able to breathe and smell through my nose for the first time in my life. When my family got home that day, they were over the moon, and brought me dozens of things to smell for the first time. The things I loved were vanilla essence and caramel. Smells I didn’t like were lemons and cinnamon. Now, almost a month later, my favourite smell is Centennial Park, next to Pioneer Stadium, when spring’s first grass clippings were still fresh on the ground. I’ve also been teaching myself to breathe through my nose without panicking, so I can look more normal, instead of having my mouth hang open to breathe around people. A lesson I had to learn the hard way was driving home to Redcliffs last week. I usually drive with the window down, as it has never mattered what smell came into the car. But I can proudly say now that I am no longer the only one driving over the causeway with my window down, because I’ve smelled the estuary at low tide, and it’s just terrible.

Home automation

Smart homes: Secure, efficient As homes are getting smarter, it’s becoming possible to control your whole home from your smartphone or computer. But what technology is worth investing in, and which are just fads? Gabrielle Stuart reports

SMART HOMES: Assist Automation managing director David Rycroft has designed smart systems for hundreds of Cantabury homes. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

YOU’RE HEADING home after a long day. As you pull in the driveway, the garage door swings open, the lights flick on and the alarm turns off. The house is already warm, as the blinds closed and the heat pump flicked on a hour before you arrived. Your dinner is bubbling in the crock pot. Having a smart house may sound pretty strange. As technology advances incredibly fast, you can programme your house, through your home wifi and a network of sensors and plug ins, to do anything from switching on sprinklers when the weather is hot to dimming your lights in the evening. The technology can make your life a lot easier and your home more energy efficient and secure. It can also go badly wrong. Automated “smart toilet” systems have been created which

can deodorise the bathroom, play music and automatically flush. The price tag was enough to put most people off – some cost more than $3000. But Satis brand toilets also had a vulnerability which meant they could be hacked, and left constantly flushing or opening and closing the lid. Although plenty of pranksters took advantage of the vulnerability, there were no really serious consequences. But that could be different if there were similar problems in something like a security system, or your wider network. And no matter how convenient it sounds, an automated system will just waste time and money if it’s unreliable. And when technology is still relatively new, finding a perfect system can be difficult. But it would also be a mistake

to write it off completely. Assist Automation started in Christchurch five years ago, and managing director David Rycroft said smart technology was becoming a lot more popular. Individual systems could be very different, but most people were motivated by either convenience, security or efficiency, he said. His customers included people who were building high-priced, architecturally designed homes, and wanted all the mod-cons. He had installed systems which could automatically turn on lights, close blinds, switch on heating or fires and control security alarms or cameras. The owner could also use their smartphone to control music or lighting while they were sitting outside, or play something anywhere in their house through a connected entertainment system. Others wanted efficiency – like McDonalds in Merivale and Riccarton, which both use the systems to automatically dim or brighten lighting during the day or night. “You’ll sometimes drive past an office complex at night and see four storeys of lights blazing with just one person in there. We can stop that,” Mr Rycroft said.

and convenient – or a disaster A smart sprinkler system can use ground moisture sensors or even the weather forecast to control when your garden is watered. You can set your appliances or heating to run at the most efficient time. That can save a lot of power, especially when combined with other technology, like solar panels. And sensors can even be used to send you a message instantly if there’s a problem, like if your washing machine springs a leak. The other common use is security. You can connect your security system and any security cameras to your mobile phone. If your alarm goes off at work, it’ll notify you and you can easily check it to see if it’s your pet setting of the alarm or if something else is going on. You can also disable the alarm or unlock the house remotely, if someone needs to stop by and doesn’t have a key or the alarm code. Mr Rycroft said he had installed systems for people with holiday homes in Tekapo or Hanmer, who wanted to be able to keep an eye on the place while in Christchurch. They could also use the systems to turn on heating or hot water remotely, so the house was warmed up before they arrived.

CONTROL: A good automated system should save time and make your home more secure, efficient and easy to manage, but an unreliable one could cause more problems than it solves. “We generally spend a lot of time up front with the client trying to understand what they want from a home automation system and what their budget and priorities are,” he said. “Some cost a few thousand, and some several hundred thousand. It’s like asking how much does a

car cost, it really is that diverse.” But he said a lot of the expense was in getting cables through walls and ceilings, so it was a lot easier and cheaper in new houses. He recommended that anyone building a new house put in the cables when they were doing their wiring, as it would make install-

Several companies in Christchurch will give you free quotes or advice about what might work for your home. You can also buy a lot of appliances and fittings online, although you need to be a lot more careful about the quality of what you’re buying. Compatibility is another thing you’ll need to check, as some devices won’t work with each other. Consumer NZ warns that a complete system is unlikely to be cheap, and recommends you weigh up how much convenience is worth to you. It also recommends you do your research thoroughly, especially around potential security issues: “We believe you should treat these threats with the same level of concern you have when using your credit card online.

Travel TRAVEL

Fijian cuisine has plenty to teach us Cooking course draws on a spectacular cuisine, writes Richard Moore

what will be on the menu — often a mix of produce they recognise, along with exotic fruit, vegetables and seafood they are seeing for the first time. On offer is likely to be the Fijian kokoda — a simple rawfish salad comprising cubes of succulent fish, lime juice and coconut milk (freshly made, of course, after you learn how to grate the flesh out of a freshly picked young coconut). Add some finely sliced, bright-red, high-heat local bongo chilli and a little diced onion and the dish is complete. Seafood features often at First Landing and Chef Daz’s approach to the local lobster is a hit with guests and locals alike. Cooking school pupils will also learn to prepare delicious dishes out of semi-ripe and ripe papaya, the many uses for

O

NE of the curses of travel is that sometimes you just don’t get enough time in one spot to get to know the place. It happened to me in Fiji recently when we didn’t reach our overnight accommodation at the First Landing Beach Resort until it was almost dark. Which is a shame, because I had heard so much about the white sand beaches and clear waters that it would have been nice to grab some snorkelling gear and mooched about in the sea for a while. Instead, we accepted a welcoming fruit cocktail in the well-styled bar before being taken to our beachfront bures. My bure was not what I was expecting. I walked into it through the mosquito-protected porch — great for after-sunset entertaining — and into an amazingly cool private domain. Bure? Hut? Crikey it was better than most motel units in New Zealand. It had a queen-sized bed with “Welcome” spelled out in leafy lettering at its end, beautiful polished floorboards, exposed dark-wood rafters, a ceiling fan spreading a cooling breeze and an air-conditioning unit if that wasn’t enough. The small fridge had chilled water and the separate bathroom had an enticing spa unit to relax in. After a quick refresh it was time for dinner. The First Landing resort offers a near-perfect open-air restaurant by the sea where the location is only beaten by the offerings on the menu. We had gone expecting good food, but quickly learned we were up for something special from the kitchen of executive chef Darren Braddock. I won’t go into the whole menu but here is a taster of what we indulged in: ■ Salt and pepper squid with a

"I hope to God I wasn’t the only person eating them because a very large platter was empty by night’s end."

COURSE YOU CAN: Chef Daz (Darren Braddock), his creations and his stunning location.

lime-marinated cucumber salad and mango, basil and chilli salsa; ■ Marinated beef strip salad with toasted cashews and preserved green pawpaw; ■ Baked snapper with a coconut and herb crust served on a bed of mountain fern (ota); ■ Chicken galantine with ovendried tomatoes and cashews wrapped in pancetta. I could barely talk I was eating so well. Oh, all right, I was yakking on but stopped on many occasions to savour Chef Daz’s creations. Brilliant. And my favourite dish? Tempura ota shoots with a dipping sauce. I hope to God I wasn’t the only person eating them because

a very large platter was empty by night’s end. After the magnificent repast we were treated to songs by the staff choir, whose fabulous singing placed us well and truly in the Fijian islands. It wasan early start the next morning to head out to the Yasawa Islands, so while our taste of First Landing Beach Resort was limited I was hooked. There’s definitely a return journey at some stage to spend more than a few nights enjoying its offerings, which include day trips to nearby Treasure, Beachcomber and Bounty Islands, tours around Viti Levu, kayaking, reef walking and fishing.

PHOTOS/RICHARD MOORE

But the main reason for returning would be to indulge in Chef Daz’s cooking classes. In fact, an increasing number of resort guests are lining up to learn to cook — Fiji style. And I would really like to learn to put together the full flavours that make up Fiji’s culinary scene. How could it not be exciting with native Fijian, Indian, Chinese and European influences. Chef Daz’s courses start with the basics — a tour of the resort’s vegetable and herb gardens — and then a trip to nearby Lautoka Produce Market for the best seasonal produce and seafood. He has his pupils help select

coconuts and mangoes, and the various varieties of bananas, pineapple, custard apples and more. I want to get to know how to best use the tender shoots of the ota fern — steamed or dipped, as Chef Daz does, in tempura batter; and how to cook duruka (Fijian asparagus) and island starch staples such as cassava, taro, plantain and breadfruit. Apparently, there’s no turning back to regular potato fried chips after learning how to make chilli-dusted cassava fries — crunchy on the outside and fluffy pillows on the inside. So Fiji isn’t just about sun, sand and sea — you can add learning serious cuisine to the menu. — The writer was in Fiji courtesy of Awesome Adventures Fiji and Vinaka Fiji.

Fruit trees arrive at Lincoln Primary

The Tai Tapu War Memorial will be illuminated on Friday as the community hosts a touring World War 1 exhibition that night. A Canterbury Museum exhibition will be on display in the Tai Tapu Library from 7pm. It features photographs, letters and military recounts of life during the last months of the war, and the spread of influenza through Christchurch. The exhibition is touring libraries throughout Selwyn, Waimakariri and Hurunui over

Lincoln Primary School was one of the first six Selwyn schools to receive fruit trees as part of a district-wide scheme funded by local businesses. Aaron and Vicky Bartlett, above, from The Outdoor Space helped the children with planting. Weedons, Rolleston, Clearview, Broadfield and Glentunnel have also had their first installment of 10 trees, as part of the plan to provide up to 50 fruit trees to the district’s schools over the next five years.

Sir Robert was MP for Ellesmere and held a number of public positions during the conflict, including that of Postmaster General. In 1921 he gave 70 acres to the residents of Tai Tapu to form Rhodes Park. The gates to the park still stand as one of Canterbury’s memorials to those in the area who served in the war. As part of the Anzac centenary celebrations, the war memorial on the corner of Christchurch Akaroa Rd and Old Tai Tapu Rd will be illuminated through the hours of darkness. • The library will be open from 7pm for the exhibition.

As well as having books for sale, the Selwyn Library Bus will also be attending offering the community a great chance to see this wonderful

facility that gets books into schools and out into the community. A story teller will also be on hand to entertain younger readers and there will be a bouncy castle, refreshments available and a colouring competition for children that can be handed in during the two days. Everyone from throughout the district is invited to come and it is hoped that the book fair will become an annual event in Dunsandel with proceeds going to various local organisations, clubs and emergency services. Visit our website www.dunsandel. co.nz to download a colouring competition and also feel free to contact Rachel Reid on 325-4664 if you have any further questions.

Award haul for Lincoln students Rising rugby star Jack Goodhue has capped off a big season by claiming the Lincoln University Sportsman of the Year Award. Goodhue won a world title with the Under-20 New Zealand rugby side in Italy, was a member of this year’s Canterbury ITM Cup team until his season was ended with injury. He was also a member of the All Blacks Sevens’ team. He also played for the university’s Division One Metro cham-

pionship winning side which claimed the title for the first time since 1981. The rugby team also won the team of the year award, the players being among a host of students who claimed ‘blues’ for representing their province or country in top level sport. Among them were Canterbury NPC netball players Charlotte Elley, who also made the New Zealand under 21 side, and Lily Fletcher; Crusader Scott Barrett,

New Zealand Under 20 World Rugby Championship squad members Hamish Dalzell and Mitch Dunshea. Cricketer Kyle Jamieson, who played for the Canterbury Kings and New Zealand Presidents XI was also recognised, as well as hockey players, rowers, women’s rugby players and footballers. Among the team nominees were the under 23 Men’s Bulls basketball team who have been on an unbeaten run since 2013.

re 1950’s mechanical watches are needed urgently by the buyers from John Bertrand (Collectables) Ltd, visiting Christchurch and Canterbury this coming week. Collectors at this stage want brands such as Rolex, Omega, Patek Philippe, Vacheron & Constantin just to mention some. These brands can command large prices depending on the condition, what they are made of etc. “Many of the other brands are only required for parts. In any event we will buy any mechanical watch, even if its only a few dollars for parts,” said Tony Grant, buyer for the company. Battery operated watches are not needed. “If you are unsure just bring any watches to us at the venues and have them appraised,” he said.

Some Big Dollars in Early Banknotes

banknote from a New Zealand trading bank dated 1932 or before. Denominations of five pounds and higher would be worth from $700. Any banknote dated prior to 1900 would be worth at least $1000,” said Mr Grant. Also purchased are any Reserve Bank of New Zealand pre-decimal issues, especially 50 Pound notes. All overseas banknotes prior to the 1950’s are also wanted.

Big Demand for Military Medals

urrently, throughout the world there is a big demand by collectors for Military Medals. These cover all wars right through from the New Zealand Land Wars and the Boer War, to the First and Second World Wars and the later Korea and Vietnam conflicts. New Zealand Servicemen and Women first served overseas in the Boer War in South Africa around 1900 and the Military Medals awarded for this service are needed by the buyers, as are any other Medals from early New Zealand and the New Zealand Wars. General service medals from both the First and Second World Wars will also be purchased, but as can be imagined these were awarded in fairly large numbers. “If a group of medals has any special award for bravery such as the Military Medal, Military or Flying Cross or other medals for Distinguished Conduct or Meritorious Service, these can add great value to a group,” stated Mr Tony Grant, buyer for John Bertrand (Collectables) Ltd. “Many families have old medals, some dating back to early Imperial days, that they are not sure what to do with. We will be happy to look at any Military Medals whatsoever, just bring them in to venues,” he said.

Time to get planting!

ATTRACTIVE: Now is the perfect time to plant summer flowering plants adding colour and variety to your garden.

FOR MANY years, Labour Weekend has been the traditional time for planting out a full range of summer vegetables and flowers. Hopefully you have planned ahead and prepared your soil ready for planting. If not, then add in plenty of compost or garden mix and combine well with your existing soil before you plant out. There is something special about growing your own vegetables – watching them grow from seed/seedling to a scrumptious crop through your own tender loving care might be why they taste better! No matter how big or small the space available; you can successfully grow veggies in regular garden beds, raised beds or in pots and containers. Tasty vegetables to plant now include beans, beetroot, carrots, celery, corn, cucumber, onions, peas, pumpkin, radish, potatoes, spinach, tomatoes and zucchini, not to mention the great range of lettuces available. If space really is an issue, there

are plenty of dwarf varieties you can grow. For plants that need support like tomatoes or beans, put your support stakes/structures in place before you plant your young plant – so you don’t disturb the roots later on. Use old pantyhose to tie plants to support structures – they are soft, so won’t damage the stem. Summer flowering annuals can also be planted now in either beds or large containers. Flower varieties to grow are alyssum, aster, cornflower, cosmos, livingstone daisy, lobelia, marigold, nemesia, portulaca, petunia, statice, salvia, stock, sunflowers and zinnia - to name just a few!

Also, think about planting some varieties in your vegetable garden to help attract bees and other beneficial insects to aid pollination. Fresh herbs can also now be safely planted, such as basil, chives, dill, marjoram, mint, oregano, parsley, sage, tarragon, thyme and rosemary. They can be grown successfully in containers or in the garden, preferring a hot, free-draining site. As trees and shrubs come into spring growth, fertilise with Daltons Premium Goldcote Landscape and Garden Fertiliser. For fruit trees, such as pip and stone, fertilise with Daltons Incredible Fruit and Berry Fertiliser. Citrus trees should be fed with a specific citrus fertiliser like Daltons Incredible Edibles Citrus Fertiliser. Do not apply fertiliser in very dry hot conditions such as the peak of summer when plants can suffer from heat or moisture stress. For more gardening advice, check out Daltons range of How To Grow guides on their website www.daltons.co.nz.

GARDENING

A modern way with roses Rachel Vogan explores some of the less traditional ways to plant and use roses in the garden.

Rose hips are high in vitamin C.

Keep it hip

Rosa mutabilis.

Edible garden – roses with other benefits

If you are into nutrition and feeding your body with fresh foods, fruits and nuts, then you may like to try making rose-hip syrup. In medieval times, wild roses were grown in monasteries and used as medicinal herbs due to their high vitamin-C content. Rugosa roses produce the biggest and brightest hips.

In the vegetable garden, consider using thornless rose varieties, such as Rosa mutabilis, as supports for beans to climb up and through. The rose bush also protects the crown of perennial runner beans over winter and gives them a head start the next season. By using a thornless rose you avoid getting scratched when harvesting your crops. Roses also bring more bees into the vegetable garden, aiding pollination. Miniature, carpet and patio roses have smaller habits and more flowers, and therefore provide a bigger food source for pollinators.

Contrast is king Garden designers understand the fact roses provide two significant, contrasting elements in the garden; lush green foliage and flashy flowers. Roses are ideal options to plant alongside brightly coloured walls, fences and facades. Shown here, the ‘City of London’ cloaks a vista that matches the sky, and in its companion image, ‘Margaret Merril’ flanks the wall of a medical centre.

Instead of a traditional hedge Roses are forgiving creatures of habit, even when neglected they generally still deliver a few blooms, but when well-clipped and loved they flourish and reward your efforts with bloom after bloom. For an informal hedge, consider shrub and compact bush and carpet roses. These types of roses can be trimmed with hedge shears once every three months, if you want to keep them in a more formal habit.

Perfectly perfumed Although this is nothing new, rose breeders see perfume as fundamental in continuing the love and engagement of nextgeneration rose lovers. Arguably the best in the business for fragrance and reliability is ‘Margaret Merril’. However, the David Austin cultivars entice you with their traditionally heady perfumes. If you are going to plant a rose, why not plant something that is beautiful and perfumed as well.

Classically cottage While the term ‘cottage garden’ might send many people into a tailspin due to the misconception these types of gardens require a lot of time and expertise, modern cottage gardens suit mass plantings of one or more carpet-style roses. These roses survive and thrive in median strips in motorways and berms, providing a good security option around sensitive areas as people don’t like getting their legs scratched. ‘Flower Carpet Amber’ teamed up with a picket fence for a classical, yet modern, look.

Wanting to plant a lemon tree in Canterbury? Meyer is the one for you! Most lemon trees require a warmer all-year-round climate and sometimes don’t cope too well in the frosty weather. The Meyer lemon is more tolerant to the cooler climate here in Canterbury. It can handle the frosts better than other varieties. It is a more compact tree so will also do well in pots if you are lacking space, or if you haven’t got a garden to plant in.

Lemon, lime and mandarin trees are a great addition to the garden, be it in a pot or in a garden bed. Spring is a great time to fertilise existing citrus plants with a top quality citrus fertiliser. Keeping your tree fed will help promote healthier and larger fruit production. Once you have fertilised, ensure you give it a good drink of water.

3 Plant in a sunny, sheltered spot in a freedraining soil. 3 Fertilise during spring and summer. Application rates are available on the container and on our website. www.igro.co.nz 3 Water every few days in the warmer months to encourage deeper rooting, reducing the chances of drying out. This is especially important if your tree is in a pot. Establish a good watering routine throughout the year. 3 With our cooler temperatures in winter, planting in pots gives you the ability to move the pot indoors when the temperatures fall.

AMERICAN CLASSICS ON DISPLAY

Many old cars have a story behind them and the owners of the cars on display at USA Day will be keen to share their stories. 1986 Corvette Ann and Owen Moore originally owned a 1973 Corvette but sold it to fund a business. Eight years ago, Owen had a bout of ill health; Ann decided they should buy another Corvette. “We found an immaculate one with just 22,000 miles on the clock. You could still smell the leather,” says Owen. “We made a cheeky offer based on our budget, and the seller accepted.” “The car’s first owner was an 18-yearold girl who won it in a raffle in the United States. She couldn’t afford the fuel so she sold the car to a lady who gave it to her husband for their 50th wedding anniversary. The New Zealander who imported the car first saw its condition and purchased it without even a test drive. He’d planned to display it in a motorbike and car museum/café in

After admiring them over the years, he decided to buy one. He missed out on one he liked then a year ago, but saw another advertised online. The car was in Houston so after sourcing

lots of photos and details and having it checked by mechanics in the United States, Brendon purchased the car sight unseen before importing it back to New Zealand. “The purchase was a good one. I only had to put new tyres on the car and fit new seatbelts to meet New Zealand specifications,” says Brendon. 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Ray Bewley purchased his 265 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 motor powered Chevrolet Bel

This has included them purchasing diagnostic scanners and other machinery to allow them to keep on top of technology so they, as technicians, can fully appreciate each customer’s vehicle problems. “We use good quality products in the maintenance and repair of the motor vehicles and trucks we work on,” advises Simon. “You get what you pay for and if you use cheap parts, they will not be reliable and break down sooner so we only use high quality leading brands such as Maxxis tyres. These are a good all-round tyre and there is a wide range of tyres available to suit most vehicles. Other examples are Ryco oil filters that have a history of good service and Penrite oils which are superior. They make a range of oils for different types of vehicles and particular applications, and this suits our needs. The Penrite brand has been in the market for over 90 years, which speaks for itself in reliability and customer satisfaction.” Simon began his apprenticeship at the age of 17 while his off-sider Bob has been in the trade since he was 15. Their knowledge and skill combines to a total of over 75 years’ experience in the automotive industry. It means that Rolleston Diesel & Petrols can service all brands of motor vehicle and trucks of all tonnage weight and size. They also sell and fit tyres and cambelts, repair brakes, tune up vehicles, carry out diagnostic tests and much more. In fact, Simon and Bob have the expertise to work on all makes and models of motor vehicles, from the wife’s Porsche down to the lawnmower. “We get a wide range of cars in here for

Legacy the car for foul weather SPECIFICATIONS

MY 2015 evaluations have almost been as much about the weather as they have about the cars. After a glorious summer, Christchurch was pounded by a wickedly cold winter, and it seems that whenever I’m planning to get out on the road there is bad weather around. And by that I’m referring to snow, ice, rain or wind. The day I was driving Subaru’s new Legacy, conditions where at their worst, I woke up to snow on the car, and the plains were blanketed from Darfield through to Methven. On several occasions snow flurries slowed my progress. As it turned out, they were probably the most suitable conditions in which to evaluate a fourwheel-drive vehicle and Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel-drive system is one of the best on the market. All Subarus sold new in New Zealand are four-wheel-drive, and because of that the brand has earned a great reputation here in the South Island. Skiers and other recreational enthusiasts love Subaru, even if you aren’t into winter sport there are safety and other benefits gleaned from buy-

I evaluated the big six several weeks the engine works unimpeded against the seamless flow of gearback, this evaluation focuses on ing. the entry-level model. Well, that’s no surprise if you Subaru rates the Legacy four with a 7.3litre per 100km (39mpg) consider the engine is much the

same as that which powers the Impreza WRX, sans turbocharger. Part of its sporty appeal can be attributed to the sport/intelligent drive mode program which can be selected to suit whatever driving style you feel like during each journey. Against the clock the Legacy four will launch to 100km/h from a standstill in 8.8sec and will make a highway overtake in 5sec (80km/h to 120km/h). All that aside, the Legacy’s greatest strength is that of its ability underneath. The driveline and suspension combine to provide controlled handling manners, more so when road conditions aren’t at their best. My inland test was mostly wet, yet the Legacy imparts a firm, solid feel on the road, there is never a point where you think grip will be lost, even when pushed, the power proportioning system does its best to keep the tyres working so that adhesion is first priority.

Of course, there are inbuilt traction and stability control systems in place, but such is the quality of the four-wheel fully independent suspension the car doesn’t rely on them. The 225/50 x 18in Dunlop Sport rubber works well to maintain grip, the tyres are also quiet and send solid information as to how they are reacting back to the steering wheel. And if you do venture off the seal from time to time, the Legacy also gets hill descent control as part of a clever series of electronic programs which keep the car out of trouble in the first instance, most linked to Subaru’s Eyesight safety system. In entry-level form the Legacy is reasonably well appointed. I would have liked to see satellite navigation fitted, but it’s not. However, there are plenty of other specification items which work towards its price positioning in the market place. The Legacy is the quintessential mid-to-large five-seater sedan. It has high comfort levels developed through a spacious in-cabin environment. Subaru sales have been constantly buoyant throughout the years. In the South Island the brand has been served well thanks to the challenging environment in which we live. It’s a nice feeling to have that quality engineering underneath when the bad weather hits.
