Call for resignation over plan to axe board BY TOM DOUDNEY An elected representative has been called upon to resign immediately for supporting a proposal to disestablish her own community board. Selwyn Central Community Board members Alan French and Bruce Russell said Diane Chesmar should step down as chairwoman after she backed a proposal in the district’s representation review to get rid of it. Mrs Chesmar told the Selwyn Times she had acted in the best interests of the community through-

The representation review is happening across the country and looks at the make-up of each district and city council. Mr French and Mr Russell also plan to lodge an appeal on the decision to get rid of the community board following next year’s elec-

tions with Local Government New Zealand. The district council has chosen to forge ahead with the move, in spite of it being opposed by the majority of residents who submitted on the changes. It said the ward can be adequately represented by its four district councillors and community groups. Mr French said that as the community board’s representative on the representation review revision committee, Mrs Chesmar should not have voted to include getting

rid of the community board as part of the proposal because she did not have a clear mandate with the community board being split 2-2 over the matter. The committee’s vote was 5-2 in favour of including the recommendation. “We feel let down,” said Mr French. “If you are on the community board and you don’t support it, I would ask the question ‘why are you there?’”said Mr Russell. • Turn to page 2

Call for resignation over plan to axe board • From page 1 However, Mrs Chesmar said she had voted for the proposal in order to give the community a chance to have a say on the matter. Mr French and Mr Russell were “two old chaps who think it’s a bit of mana” to be on the community board, she said.

She noted that most of the submissions opposing the proposal to scrap the community board came from West Melton residents canvased by Mr Russell, or from people who lived near Mr French. She said they had also failed to support their view with a strong argument,

where as those who agreed with the proposal had made more substantial submissions. Mr Russell said the district council should have delegated the community board more authority rather than getting rid of it. “Since our community board was formed some nine years ago,

More farmers compliant BY TOM DOUDNEY Almost one in three SelwynWaihora zone dairy farmers have failed to comply with the terms of their resource consent. Environment Canterbury’s Canterbury Region Dairy Report, which covered the 2014/2015 season, found that 68.25 per cent of farms in the zone were compliant. However, the figure was an improvement on the previous 12 months, when 54 per cent of farms were compliant, and was above the Canterbury average of 64 per cent. Across Canterbury, there were less serious instances of significant non-compliance compared to the previous year, but more instances of minor non-compliance. Federated Farmers North Canterbury president Frank Brenmuhl said people needed to be aware that the issues that caused farmers to be non-compliant were often “nitpicky” things that had no effect on the environment. “You can be non-compliant if your relevant piece of paper is no longer stuck to the wall.” District councillor and dairy farmer Grant Miller (right) said people needed to be aware that in general terms, the actual compliance was very good. “There are no major spillages going into the water, although there is a small percentage that does occur,” he said. “Dairy farmers, as a group,

have spent significant amounts of money around storage and application technologies. Those measures add to your environmental bottom line but they don’t add to your profitability bottom line.” ECan regional manager monitoring and compliance Marty Mortiaux said the level of non-compliance was concerning but the progress which had been made since the previous season was pleasing. “There has been a steady decrease in the number of noncompliances within the dairy sector. This should give the public confidence that industry and ECan interventions are making a difference,” Mr Mortiaux said.

HAVE YOUR SAY Are you concerned about the number of dairy farmers failing to meet the conditions of their resource consent? Email your views to tom.doudney@ starmedia.kiwi “We will continue to work hard to drive this number even lower over the next season.” Of the 219 consented dairy farms in the zone, 218 were monitored during the 12 month period. Of these, 52 had minor noncompliance issues and 16 had significant non-compliances, resulting in two abatement notices and one $750 infringement notice being handed out for two farms. However, Green Party primary industries spokeswoman Eugenie Sage said non-compliance was

not as big an issue as the massive scale of land use in Selwyn to dairying and the impact of nutrient pollution from indirect discharges such as farm run-off and leaching on rivers, streams and aquifers. “We have reached the limit in terms of cow numbers in the district. As the Parliamentary Commissioner’s 2013 report showed, no matter how many farmers implement best practice, the scale of land use change means water pollution will continue to increase,” she said. “ECan says that the SelwynWaihora zone has the fourth highest number of wells in the region where nitrate-nitrogen and E-coli levels exceed the maximum acceptable values according to World Health Organisation standards.”

▌IN ▌ BRIEF Top maths honour

Alan Li, a year 9 student at Lincoln High School, has taken out top honours in one of the world’s biggest mathematics competitions. Alan is one of 69 students from around the world, including four from New Zealand, to receive a medal in the annual Australian Mathematics Competition. Several hundred thousand students from schools in more than 30 countries entered this year’s competition. This included about 15,000 entries from almost 300 primary and secondary schools in New Zealand.

Ducklings rescued

Eight ducklings were rescued from a drain on Edward St by members of the Lincoln Volunteer Fire Brigade on Thursday. It was the brigade’s second duckling rescue in a month, after they rescued another seven from a drain in early last month.

Ellesmere fires

A scrub fire at the Ellesmere Golf Course on Sunday was one of several attended by Leeston and Southbridge firefighters over the weekend. The fire was about 20 sq m and had been smouldering for several days after a controlled burn off. Other fires included a 50m pine hedge near Volckman Rd and two beach fires which got away into scrub near Smiths Rd and North Rakaia Rd respectively.

‘Psycho alarm’ earns teen award BY TOM DOUDNEY A wake-up alarm too annoying to be ignored has earned a Lincoln High School student a prize in a national technology competition. Aurelia Wilberforce, 13, won the junior best concept award in the Bright Sparks competition for her smartphone app ‘Wakey Wakey’. She received a trophy and a cheque for $250 at a ceremony in Auckland, on Thursday. Her project brief described the concept as “the psycho alarm clock that won’t turn off ” which combined the “most annoying sounds in the world.” Aurelia combined 11 sound effects for the alarm, based on a list of the most unpleasant sounds to the human ear identified by a Newcastle University study. They included high pitched piano notes, fingernails on a chalkboard, writing on a chalkboard, a knife on a bottle, a fork on a plate, wet shoes squelching, an electric drill, a fire alarm, breaking glass, eerie winds and a screaming baby. After the alarm goes off, users must complete one of two tasks to turn it off. They have to either find three alarm icons hidden in an image or answer a basic maths problem. Aurelia said her inspiration had

Students part of lake clean-up initiative Students from city schools and from Lincoln High School are taking part in a programme to help clean up Lake Ellesmere. A group of Linwood College year 10 students are taking part in a programme focused on cleaning up Lake Ellesmere. The programme, He Puna Pūtaiao, is a Canterbury University initiative which is running this term. Linwood College and Cashmere High School students will help carry out quantitative and qualitative assessments of the water quality and wildlife in the lake itself or in its tributaries. They will present their final research at a seminar at the university with staff, whānau, and repre-

sentatives from the participating groups. Over the school term the students will work with staff, science mentors from the university and kaumātua from the local rūnanga over six weeks, one day per week. Lake Ellesmere, or Te Waihora, has immense significance, not only as a wetland of importance but also as a treasure with high cultural significance to mana whenua. However, the quality of the water itself and the range and quantity of wildlife in and on Te Waihora give cause for concern. It is the subject of several different research projects and intervention programmes.

High groundwater nitrate levels identified in Greendale BY TOM DOUDNEY High nitrate levels in shallow groundwater wells has led to the identification of a new high risk zone around Greendale. The risk applies to private wells, rather than community drinking supplies managed by the district council. The maximum acceptable value for nitrate levels in drinking water is 11.3mg/L, set by the Ministry of Health. Since 2012, sampling by Environment Canterbury has found levels in excess of 11.3mg/L in four private wells within the new high risk zone which covers about 6 sq km. Four more wells in and around the zone recorded levels between 5.6 and 11.3mg/L. Medical officer of health Dr Alistair Humphrey said the problem of increasing nitrates in groundwater was linked to intensification of agriculture. “So the question we all have to ask as a community is whether we want to keep driving towards higher and higher levels of intensification,” he said.         “There are many countries in the world who will tell you the sad story of their water being contaminated from agriculture – Spain, Germany and other parts of the world.” Dr Humphrey said the Canterbury District Health Board supported the goal of the Environment Canterbury’s Canterbury Water Management Strategy to have no wells exceeding the maximum acceptable value by 2040.

However, so far nitrate levels were still tracking in the wrong direction. “With our current cow population, if we were to measure them by urine, we would have [the equivalent of] 100 million people in New Zealand not using the toilet – so that is a lot of contamination.” Dr Humprey said that while the high nitrate concentrations were only a risk for bottle-fed babies under the age of six months, there were other more serious contaminants associated with cattle which could appear in drinking water supplies from time to time. These included E. coli which could cause renal failure. ECan groundwater science manager Carl Hanson said while agricultural activities were the most likely source of contamination, nitrate concentrations in the Greendale area appeared to have been high for many years. “So we cannot say they are related to recent intensification.” He did not know how many private wells there were in the area but the number was low. “If their water comes from a shallow well, we recommend that they contact their health practitioner if pregnant women will be drinking the water or it will be used to make up formula for babies.” Mr Hanson said there was no cause for concern over public water supplies sourced from groundwater. “Public supplies are constructed and tested to make sure they meet drinking-water standards.”

Booming Izone brings in more buck than expected Business is booming and so are the district council’s coffers. Strong land sales in the Izone business hub have been a major factor in the district council bringing in almost $60 million more revenue than expected. Revenue for the 2014-2015 financial year was $157.1 million, compared to the budgeted $97.6 million. The main variances were due to land sales revenue from Izone coming in earlier than previously budgeted for, and additional income being received from de-

velopment contributions. Development contributions are received from developers and used to pay for growth related infrastructure costs such as new reserves. Development contributions

cannot be used to reduce rates. Revenue from vested assets was also $19.2 million higher than budgeted. Vested assets are infrastructure such as roads and water pipes which are constructed by developers and then transferred to the district council to maintain. Vested assets are a non-cash item which cannot be used to reduce rates. The district council reduced borrowings from $75.1 million to $55.1 million during the year. This is a reduction of $20 million reflecting the district council’s strong cashflow position.

Danny Devine

OUR PEOPLE

Stepping up game for heavy High country stock manager Danny Devine will step up to compete against international competitors for the Oceania Heavyweight Championship title at the Hororata Highland Games. He spoke to Tom Doudney about his training regime and how he almost killed Shrek the sheep How did you first get into Scottish heavy events? I was working for John and Tish of Ballagh Contracting over at Hororata when the Highland Games first got started up and they asked me to enter. I think they wanted me to make up the numbers. Do you have a Scottish family background yourself? Yes, on my mother’s side. My mother is Scottish, my father is Irish. So you’ve got a bit of fight in you then? Yeah, it’s a typical convict mixture I think! You’ve been at the games every year since it started, and this year, you’re competing against the internationals for the first time? Tell me how that came about. Every year in the amateurs I always place either first or second so I think they have bumped me up a level. Are you pleased about that? I don’t know – I don’t really do a hell of a lot of training. The guys I’ll be competing against are professionals so I guess it will be a bit of a wakeup call.

Vouchers available

What have you been doing to train for the step up? Just garage sort of training – lifting two 20kg drums of water at a time and that sort of thing. I can’t really get to town to do weights or anything like that so I just have to make do with what I have. I lift tractor weights and do a bit of CrossFit. What do you do for a living? I am stock manager at Cleardale Station up the Rakaia Gorge. I guess that explains the dogs I can hear in the background (over the phone). Are they your dogs and how many have you got? Six. They are all work dogs. What’s your connection to Shrek the sheep? I was working as a musterer at Bendigo Station when we found him. I was the one that carried him to the truck. We thought we might get him stuffed and mounted for a shop window in Paris or something like that. We were discussing how we were going to kill him without wrecking the fleece. Obviously you didn’t kill him – what changed your mind?

Photographer Steve Jaquiery was there taking photographs of the tahr and red dear in the game park. He took a photo of Shrek almost then and there and said it might be quite a good story so we just held off killing him. The next day it was on the front of the Otago Daily Times and then it reached England. Were you surprised by how big the story became? Very much. It was way over my head. It was very good for Cure Kids though. I think more than $500,000 was raised so that was quite heart-warming, I guess. You went to Darfield High School for a while – where did you grow up? Well, I was expelled from three schools so I sort of moved around a fair bit but mainly in North Otago – Kurow. How did you manage to keep getting expelled? Just typical boys’ mischief, nothing major. I was just being a little bit mischievous. You’re a big strong guy – what do you eat?

event against the pros No camping signage likely unclear BY TOM DOUDNEY

CLAIM TO FAME: Danny was mustering at Bendigo Station when he and another musterer found Shrek the sheep. As much as I can, as a rule. I’m 6’6 (198cm) and 130kg. I just eat your basic sort of farmer’s diet I guess – spuds, chops and a couple of vegetables every night. Bacon and eggs or porridge for breakfast. What are the events you compete in? There are the atlas stones – big concrete balls you have to lift up on to barrels, ranging from about 105kg to 145kg. Last time I only

got three out of the five of them up. Then there is the caber toss, the sheaf toss, the stone putt which is similar to shot-put, a heavyweight event where you pick up a weight and throw it over your head as high as you can get it, and the hammer throw. What will be the biggest challenge for you? The atlas stones? Yeah, I would say so. Do you have a favourite event? Probably the caber toss.

HEAVYWEIGHT: Danny is a regular competitor at the Hororata Highland Games. This year he will face off against international competition for the first time. PHOTO: MURRAY IRWIN What are your hobbies? I do quite a bit of hunting and I’m on my last little bit of getting my private pilot’s licence – touch wood. Hopefully, I will finish that process by Christmas time. Essentially, I would like to own my own plane. Where do you like to go hunting? Up the Rakaia Gorge. I do quite a lot of pig hunting and deer shooting. How did you get the nickname ‘Cage’?

Joanna FieLDes

I was born in Hampton Court and came to New Zealand in 1973 in my early twenties, I lived in Golden Bay and soon became involved in the art and craft world. I was involved with a few shops and galleries around the country. I sold leatherwear, bags, belts and sandals. I eventually ended up in Canterbury.

Joanna Fieldes is a selftaught artist with a uniquely surreal vision of her country and culture, unencumbered by conventional modes of Hide & Seek representation. Successfully exhibiting in solo, joint and group shows in public and private galleries around New Zealand since her first solo show in Auckland in 2004, Joanna has developed a distinctively resonant style of her own. “In this selection of oil paintings I have combined New Zealand landscapes with flora, fauna and still life objects in ways that suggest alternative subtexts to the ubiquitous stories of our colonial past. These works explore, from my Pakeha perspective, the colonization of New Zealand. Central to my theme is the lasting impact that European explorers, early colonial settlers and those that followed have had on the indigenous environment and inhabitants of this corner of the South Pacific.

The ‘Artist Quarter’ was my main outlet where I took orders for leather foot wear and also where I first met Angela and Stuart of the Little River Gallery. I am now into completely different things. I love working with copper which is in some ways similar to leather. I still make patterns and copper is quite malleable, as is leather. Our Lives are a constant rush to be somewhere or meet some important deadline. Allow time to follow a path that leads not to great wealth but to Aborial Illumination creative fulfilment.

It’s a long story but a long time ago, when I lived down south, I used to play rugby for Balclutha with ex-Otago rugby captain David Latta and he thought I should be locked up in a cage. Why, were you a bit crazy on the rugby field? You work hard, you play hard, I suppose, and when I got on the booze I would run amok. • The Hororata Highland Games will be held on Saturday at Hororata Domain.

Campervan drivers using a nocamping area in Darfield may have been taking the signage a little bit too literally. The signs next to the public toilets show a tent with a cross through it but that hasn’t kept campervans from stopping overnight. Malvern Community Board chairwoman Jenny Gallagher said it was possible the signage was not clear enough, in that people might think it was only tents that were banned rather than all forms of camping. She said campers had been hanging their washing out to dry on a fence near the toilets, which was unsightly. District council staff were expected to investigate the matter and provide a report back to the community board.

Spring fair a hit with Building community spirit highlight of young and old Sunny skies brought a crowd of around 1500 to the Hororata Spring Fair, raising more than $10,000 for the local Anglican parish. The return of the traditional kids races were a hit with the young participants and adults watching on. Fair committee chairwoman Lucy Cookson said the support from the community had been great. “We were very pleased that after the last few years of very average weather everybody seemed to come out and support the fair.”

Motukarara fireworks BY TOM DOUDNEY

This year’s Motukarara fireworks display will be as much about building community spirit as about lighting up the sky. The annual event will be held at Waihora Domain on November 7. Waihora Entertainment Committee chairman Andrew Dean said it had always been a family-friendly affair but as it had grown in scale, it had run the risk of losing the simple community feel. “Volunteer support in general is waning, so, as an experiment, this year we are making an effort to shift the focus to as much of a community building event as we can.” Mr Dean said the event cost about $9000 to run and was funded entirely from entry fees. Any funds raised in excess of this went to improving the domain. “We have invited schools and community groups to partner with us and share both the responsibilities and benefits of the night,” he said. Diamond Harbour School will run the sausage sizzle, while the Diamond Harbour Sea Scouts will have a bake sale and the Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery school will run the bouncy castle. St John members will help with the hay ride and the gate. “Even the food vendors have started stepping up,” Mr Dean said.

“The husband of the Transylvanian Tunnel Cake food truck lady teaches gymnastics and has offered to run a gymnastics activity for the kids.” The gate fee would be set at a flat $20, whereas previously additional fees for having more than five people in a vehicle had been charged. “It may prove to be a terrible idea financially,” Mr Dean said. “But I’m hoping that a flat rate will encourage carpooling to the event. Carpooling is a natural form of community building and will also be a tad more ecological.” He said while making an event profitable was fairly straight forward, community building was more of a challenge. “I’m trying to recreate the community fairs of my childhood, where local businesses and groups all have tables but also offer free activities for the kids. In the future, what I’m hoping is that local businesses and clubs will ask to exhibit at our event and in exchange put up some homemade carnival games or activities as payment,” he said. “This is all a grand experiment. If it fails, we can always go back to a more financially driven model, but for this year we are asking the questions ‘who can benefit from access to our community?’ and to those who can, ‘what can you offer the community in return?’”

Wow – what an opening and what a reception! Harvey World Travel have been open just three full weeks and we have been blown away with the community support and encouragement at us being here. A huge thanks for those that have stopped by to see us. For our first column we thought we’d share some answers the most frequently asked questions we get. “Why aren’t the specials advertised the same as those you have quoted me?” Each time we get an enquiry from an advertised special our first question is when do you want to travel? All specials are for set periods—sales by a certain time and travelling on specific dates. So often our customers get their interests piqued and go – yep that’s a cool holiday destination. But their dates simply aren’t for the sale travel period. Instantly the quote will be higher before we go any further! If you see an advertised special, check the travel dates. So you check the dates, but it says “close out applies.” “What is a close out?” Peak periods are closed out. This is typically around Christmas and New Years and school holiday periods and more often than not a week either side of all these times. Some destinations have their own holidays (think Chinese New Year) that make them more popular. A general rule is that the price of

flights and accommodation is higher during these periods. No airlines or accommodation suppliers will offer specials during this period as they simply don’t need too. Supply is already high so the demand dictates they can charge what they want. We can get it “cheaper” on the internet? Can you? Really? Air NZ have advertised flights at $99 but we quote it for more. Why? Air NZ have fares start at $99 and are seat only. Our fares include baggage. Straight off you are paying more. If you have no bags then Air NZ direct could be the way to go. But remember if you are paying by Credit Card you are charged a fee with them. If you have more than one airline option to your destination, you may spend hours searching for the best option whereas we can compare all airlines in the one place. Remember—time is money. Until next time—stop dreaming about it and start planning! Pop in and see us today!

New targets to boost connectivity in rural areas Many rural communities in Selwyn are benefitting from improved broadband services thanks to the Rural Broadband Initiative. However, I know from personal experience that there are a number of areas where connectivity is still not as good as we would like it to be. I hope that Selwyn communities outside the Ultra-Fast Broadband footprint will be heartened by the Government’s new connectivity targets. The target is for 99 per cent of New Zealanders, regardless of where they live or work, to be able to access broadband at peak speeds of at least 50Mbps by 2025. This will allow users to: • Use multiple devices at the same time without experiencing a degraded service. • Stream ultra HD video straight to their computer or television without buffering. • Sync multiple users into video conferencing. • Transfer a 100MB data file in as little as 16sec. • Host multiplayer games with dozens of players. • Use video-on-demand services which recommend 25Mbps speeds per stream for playing movies and TV shows in ultra HD online. This will mark a 10-fold increase on the current target peak speeds of 5Mbps under the RBI, phase one of which is due for completion in December next year. The Government recognises that securing reliable and affordable telecommunica-

Amy Adams Selwyn MP

tions services is critical to the health and well-being of rural communities. We’ve come a long way already in improving rural connectivity under the RBI and 4G networks, with average internet speeds having tripled during the past seven years, but we want to take that even further and these new targets will allow us to do that. Fast, reliable broadband is an important factor in enabling economic growth. It allows rural and farming communities and regions to remove the barriers and disadvantages of distance, and provides opportunities for them to raise productivity, attract and retain staff, and compete on a national and global stage. The Government recognises that New Zealanders’ use of, and reliance on, technology and broadband connectivity are increasing rapidly. It is therefore vital that we set aspirational targets to ensure we keep up with this pace of change. This change will see New Zealand move from 17th in the world for rural connectivity targets to seventh and will ensure that no-one misses out on the opportunities of the digital age. We want to see all Kiwis, whether urban or rural, with access to the economic and social opportunities highspeed connectivity brings.

Tennis court grant raises concerns BY TOM DOUDNEY

POISED: Jeff Chapman with the new ball bowling to Monty Bamford.

Results: Lincoln 78 (Mike McCaughan 3/21, Jeff Chapman 3/14) lost to South Malvern 81/3 (James Ferris 35) by seven wickets at Lincoln. Sefton 125 (O Bragg 28* C Renai 4/26) lost to Southbrook 126/9 (A Robertson 32, A Laffey 3/15) by one wicket at Southbrook. Weedons 89 (T Boyle 27, M Ross 4/22, D Munro 4/17) lost to LeestonSouthbridge 90/7 (C Beatson 36*, K Meyerhoff 3/20) by three wickets at Weedons. Greendale 172 (D Crequer 42, L Waghorn 3/48, C Scott 3/16) beat Oxford 152 (L Waghorn 36, N Jenkins 3/10, H Jebson 3/25) by 20 runs at Oxford.

CONTROL: Chris Hay plays with a straight bat.

A grant of $3500 for resurfacing Darfield’s tennis courts has sparked debate about how hard court facilities on public reserves should be funded. The funding comes from the district council’s Sport and Cultural Fund. The cost to repair cracks and resurface all six of the club’s courts is $66,734. The club has committed $20,000 of its own funds and has applied for further grants from Pub Charity and the Canterbury Community Trust. On Wednesday, district councillors voted to approve the grant but Cr Nigel Barnett questioned whether the tennis club could have received support from local reserve funding, sourced from targeted rates. “This is quite a significant amount of expenditure for what is usually a small club,” he said. “I just think it’s a bit rough that the club is having to find something like $65,000 to resurface these courts on behalf of the whole community.” Cr Mark Alexander said he shared Cr Barnett’s concerns and

that other clubs had been able to receive funding for their courts from within their own community, rather than from a funding pool sourced from general rates. “The Rolleston Reserves Committee, in recognition of the service the tennis courts provide, has generally funded new tennis courts on Rolleston Reserve because they are a benefit to the whole community. They have done so out of development contributions, historically, or out of capital projects against the reserve rate. So the Rolleston Tennis Club has never had to come to council for a grant.” Cr Grant Miller warned that in approving the grant, the district council would be setting a precedent that could see “a queue lining up tomorrow” of other clubs seeking funding. “Be aware there are other tennis clubs within the Selwyn district who are in the exact same position struggling to pay for the resurfacing of their courts.” The district council report on the grant request said the club had 47 senior members, 50 junior members and its membership was growing.

Collapse leaves Halswell short

Runners eye up medals Up to six runners will have their dedication recognised with medals when they compete in their fifth consecutive Selwyn Running Festival on Sunday. The event will be held on the roads in and around Leeston and Southbridge. Entries close on Thursday. Selwyn Sports Trust chief executive Michael Wilson said there were 300 entries in by the middle of last week, putting them on target for about 550, the same as last year. The six runners to be recognised are the only people to have competed in the half marathon event every year since 2011, when it

was first held. They include Leeston area residents Nigel Thomas, Pauline Lay, Mark Maddren, Lynne Dunlop and Lynette Webber, along with Rolleston resident Emily Bell. Only Bell is yet to confirm whether she will take part in the event. Mr Wilson said the event was initially set up so Ellesmere residents would have a local race they could call their own. “But we have branched out now to [all of] Selwyn as we have grown and taken a wider view of what can be achieved.” Since last year it has included the Athletics Canterbury Half Marathon Cham-

pionship and the 1400m Kids Dash, along with the existing half marathon, 10km and 5km races. There are sheep-themed age categories, four race distances and 10 race shields. Mr Wilson said the event catered to all types of athletes. “All four courses provide first time entrants with an achievable race and those with more experience have a real chance to set new personal best times.” Mr Wilson said entry numbers were tracking well. • More information on the event, including entry details, is available online at selwynsportstrust.org.nz

A lower order collapse saw the Halswell senior A side lose six wickets for 50 runs to fall short in their one-day match against Sumner on Saturday. Playing at Halswell Domain, Sumner won the toss and batted first. Two early wickets had the hosts in a promising position before some good middle order partnership saw Sumner post 222/7. James Pearson bowled well, taking 3/36, while Geoff Barclay and Mike Chatterton both took two wickets each. In response, Halswell were cruising at 140/2 due to a 110-run partnership between Matt McClintock (33) and Geoff Barclay (70) until both batsmen fell at the same time. Halswell’s middle to late order could not match Sumner’s earlier efforts and were all out for 205. The result means Halswell have lost both of their first two matches after going down to Heathcote the previous week. In that game they were dismissed for a disappointing 102 with Heathcote reaching the total in the 25th over for the loss of three wickets. Halswell will need to get their oneday campaign on track next week when they play a double header.

Selwyn Community Board News

Dispose of your

green waste at Darfield

The Board held its October meeting at Rolleston and received an update on sourcing funding for the interpretation panel outlining the areas history at Cream Can Corner. An update was provided on the Rolleston Railway Station beautification project. Kiwirail have now confirmed what actions are able to be undertaken by the Board. The Board allocated the following grants: · Rolleston Mens Shed to help with consent costs · Funding for two members of the Flying Dixies Jazz Band to attend the Napier Art Deco festival · Funding to help 20 Rolleston Guides with the costs of attending the 2016 Jamboree · West Melton Play Centre for St Johns attendance at their Fun Run Day in November We would like to let the wider Selwyn Central community know that the Community Board has grants available to support community groups and individuals – to find out more about the grants and the criteria associated with these, visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/grants. The next Board meeting will be on 18 November at the Council’s Rolleston offices.

Learn computing skills with SeniorNet SeniorNet classes are now running in Selwyn. SeniorNet is for people over 50 who would like to learn more about computing, the internet and technology. Small classes cover topics like using the internet, Excel, Skype and Facebook. Local classes run at:

On Saturday 5 December, Selwyn residents will have the opportunity to dispose of green garden waste at Hawkins Pit near Darfield. If you’re planning to clean up your garden in the springtime this is a great chance to get rid of garden prunings, tree trimmings or weeds. It costs $5 per car, ute or single axle trailer to drop off greenwaste, or $10 for a double axle trailer. General rubbish, soil, cabbage or flax tree leaves, and large trees or braches over 10cm thick can’t be disposed of through this service.

· Darfield on Tuesdays from 10am – 12pm. To register contact Kathryn on 318 7077 · Lincoln on Wednesdays from 10am – 12pm. To register contact Lisa on 347 2755 · Leeston on Thursdays from 10am – 12pm. To register contact Marion on 324 3537 · Rolleston on Fridays from 10am – 12pm. To register contact Isobel on 347 1128 You can also register by emailing Selwyn.seniornet@selwyn.govt.nz.

Hawkins Pit is located off Cullens Road just east of Bangor Road, about five kilometres from Darfield. The greenwaste disposal service will be operating on Saturday 5 December between 10am and 4pm. A greenwaste disposal day is also planned at Leeston early next year.

Fireworks Safety With Guy Fawkes this week, we would like to remind Selwyn residents to be safe and considerate if using fireworks. Two public fireworks displays are being held on Saturday 7 November in Selwyn. The Rolleston Reserve Fireworks evening runs from 5-10.30pm and includes stalls, food, games and rides. Gates open for the Motukarara Fireworks display (held at Waihora Domain, Park Road) from 5.30pm. The Motukarara display also includes free hay rides, live music, pony rides, ice cream, a sausage sizzle, bake sale and bouncy castle. Entry is $20 per car, or $5 per person for walk-ins. Public displays are a good way to enjoy fireworks displays without the risk of injury or escaped fires occurring. Vegetation is becoming dry in Selwyn. If you are planning to use fireworks at home you need to be careful not to allow fireworks to come into contact with hedges, garden shrubs or long grass as if fireworks do contact vegetation this can easily ignite a fire. If you are using fireworks at home the following safety tips should be followed: · · · · · ·

Do not light fireworks in windy or hot conditions Follow handling instructions on fireworks carefully Only ignite fireworks in an open space clear of buildings and anything flammable Have a supply of running water at hand, like a garden hose If a firework fails to ignite, do not pick it up and try to reignite it as it could injure you Only adults should use fireworks. Children should stay a safe distance away. Alcohol and fireworks also do not go together · Keep pets secure inside. Horses and cows can be spooked by fireworks and need to be secured · Let your neighbours know if you are planning to light fireworks and avoid setting fireworks off at an unreasonable time of night or in the early morning. Volunteer Fire Forces are normally very busy around Guy Fawkes so please follow the advice above to help avoid starting fires. If you see a fire call 111 to report it.

On the roads this week An intersection upgrade is currently taking place to Boundary, Weedons and Lincoln Rolleston Roads. The intersection of Shands and Boundary Roads is also being upgraded. Road repairs are planned to McDrurys, Robinsons and Barnes Roads and Cunningham Street (between Station and High Streets), with stop and go signs being used by contractors to control traffic. Road repairs are also planned to Telegraph (between State Highway 1 and Highfield Road), Two Chain and Leeston Lake Roads, which will remain open with traffic controls in place. Work to remove high shoulders along roadsides will take place along Powells, Days and Downs Roads and traffic controls will be in place. Footpath repairs are being made in Lincoln beside Edward Street and Moffat Drive. This week resealing work is planned along Feredays, Burts, Tramway, Heslerton, Fiddlers, Duck Pond and Ridge Roads. Stop and go signs will be used for traffic control. Maintenance grading work is planned around the Windwhistle, Te Pirita, Dunsandel, Darfield and Kirwee areas, with roads remaining open. Where work is not completed this week, work will continue next week.

Lincoln Town Centre Plan

SELWYN TIMES

Take a look at... Lincoln town centre A vision for Lincoln’s future

Lincoln residents and businesses are being invited to share their views on proposals for the future development of the town centre.

Council urban designer Gabi Wolfer says the draft plan draws on a wide range of community input and ideas.

During November Selwyn District Council is consulting on the Draft Lincoln Town Centre Plan – which aims to help co-ordinate development in the town centre and to guide future Council investment.

“There are many exciting opportunities the community has suggested over the years,” Gabi says. “We’ve now developed and priced projects to give people the opportunity to decide which ones should come to fruition.

Community and business forums are planned, to give local people an opportunity to comment on the proposals and projects in the draft plan, and give feedback on what developments should be prioritised. The plan is designed to help the town centre remain a lively and prosperous business area as it grows and develops. It aims to ensure that future development is of a high standard, while retaining its distinct village atmosphere. Key themes in the plan: · Promoting ‘active commercial frontage’, with buildings placed to the edge of the footpath and glass doors and windows facing the street. This design helps to create visual interest and supports a lively street scene for residents and visitors · Developing public spaces and squares with attractive landscaping which can be used for markets, events and relaxation · Ensuring the town centre design provides for safe cycling and walking connections, while allowing traffic to move through the township · Providing and managing adequate car parking in the town centre · Designing streets that are suited to their purpose.

“The vision is for a town centre that Lincoln people can enjoy and be proud of. Increasing accessibility and safety for cyclists and pedestrians will contribute to a vibrant business and community hub, and help make Lincoln a real ‘destination’. “The draft plan includes projects to make the town centre easier to move around in – whether you’re on foot, on a bike or in a vehicle, and providing a variety of parking opportunities close to where people want to be. “There are also proposals for improved pedestrian linkages, attractive street frontages, and attractive open spaces that can provide great locations for community events and activities. “Now it’s important that the Council hears the views of local residents and businesses on the proposals - and especially on which projects they see as most important.” Community forums will be held on Wednesday 4 November (for businesses and property owners) and on Monday 16 and Saturday 21 November for the wider community and residents. See below for details. Consultation on the Draft Lincoln Town Centre Plan closes on Monday 30 November 2015.

Background to the plan The new draft plan is different from previous plans, because of major changes affecting the town centre. The Land Use Recovery Plan process undertaken as part of CERA legislation has redefined and extended the town centre area to nearly double its former size. The new town centre now includes the area between the Liffey and West Belt (now referred to as the Retail Core East precinct); the area around the New World supermarket and adjacent land to the south (the Retail Core West precinct); and the area along Gerald Street in between the East and West precincts (Transitional Living precinct). Other changes include the withdrawal of plans for a heavy traffic by-pass after transport studies showed there is not enough traffic to support an expensive bypass; the rapid development of new subdivisions to the north and south of Lincoln along with new facilities like Lincoln Event Centre and Lincoln Library; and the proposed Lincoln Innovation hub, which will create new challenges and opportunities for the town.

Help plan your town’s future Community forums

The Lincoln Town Centre Plan builds on community consultation carried in 2011 for the Lincoln Opportunity study. Since that time, new land use rules have been put in place under the Land Use Recovery Plan (LURP), released to assist with earthquake recovery.

Speedway drivers ready to roar

Ellesmere golf results

Local drivers are expected to be to the fore this Saturday night when the 54th season of racing commences at Stadium Finance Ruapuna Speedway. The opening night will feature the first round of the $60,000 Sprintcar War of the Wings Series, and most eyes will be on the expected clash between controversial Australian Allan Woods, and Rolleston-based New Zealand champion Jamie Duff. Last season they had a heated altercation at the Woodford Glen round of the series. Woods, never one to back away, is adamant that there are still scores to be settled, while Duff is unworried about that and is keen to get his campaign off to a winning start. Lincoln’s Shaun Ashton, Rolleston’s Steve Duff Junior and Halswell’s Ray Baughan are also expected to be among the front runners. The midget car class is likely to see more Selwyn drivers playing dominant roles with Leeston’s Dave Kerr and Southbridge’s Tom Lumsden both carrying heavy favouritism. Kerr finished third in last seasons New Zealand Championship and his hard charging racing style makes him a big favourite with the fans. Lumsden has recently upgraded his car to a late model Esslinger-

CO.NZ powered machine and much is expected of the quietly spoken builder who won a major modified sprint event in Australia during the New Zealand off-season. Motukarara’s Glenn Everett who won last season’s South Island Midget Car Championship is another to watch for. A number of other Selwyn and Christchurch competitors are among the favoured contenders in the other classes. Prebbleton’s Kris Jemmett was the dominant driver in the six shooter division last summer and he will again be the man to chase, while the ‘never say die’ racing atti-

tude of Hornby’s Verdon McHaffie should add spectacle to the modified sprint section. However, with a long tradition of TQ midget racing at Ruapuna, that is the class where the locals tend to shine. Hornby’s Matthew Leversedge finished second in last years national championship and is again likely to be a dominant force in that class, although he will be doing double duty with some scheduled appearances in a sprintcar. Prebbleton’s Jeremy Webb is the defending South Island champion, and also a leading contender for this summer’s national championship that will be contested at Auck-

Southern ChiropraCtiC 290 halswell road

Alleviate lower back pain from your life We are hard on our bodies. The twisting, turning, lifting, bending and impact of everyday life can take its toll on our lower backs. This is why lower back pain is one of

the most common injuries – in fact more than 80 per cent of the population will suffer from lower back pain at some point in their lives. The lower back is an intricate structure of interconnected and overlapping elements

which includes tendons and muscles and other soft tissues, highly sensitive nerves and nerve roots that travel from the lower back down into the legs and feet, small and complex joints and spinal discs with their gelatinous inner cores. An irritation or problem with any of these structures can cause lower back pain and/or pain that radiates or is referred to other parts of the body. Pain from ensuing lower back muscle spasms can be severe, and pain from a number of syndromes can become chronic. Pain can be linked to a general cause such as muscle strain, injury or over use – or it can be attributed to a specific diagnosed condition of the spine. These can include: •Herniated Disc •Degenerative Disc Disease •Spondylolisthesis •Spinal Stenosis •Osteoarthritis

290 halswell Road

How Chiropractic Care Helps When patients with non-specific chronic low back pain are treated by chiropractors, the longterm outcome is enhanced by obtaining maintenance spinal manipulation after the initial intensive manipulative therapy. The common goal of most chiropractic techniques is to restore or to enhance joint function, with the general goals of resolving joint inflammation and reducing pain. Some approaches use some force (spinal manipulation), while others are more gentle (spinal mobilization). A key factor to living with a spine or back pain condition is staying healthy. Overall

wellness is a combination of a balanced diet, appropriate exercise and physical activity, restful sleep and positive lifestyle choices. Identifying the symptoms, along with an accurate diagnosis of the underlying cause of the pain, is the first step in obtaining effective pain relief.

Southern Chiropractic, located at 290 halswell Road, is open Monday 8am-6pm and Wednesday 9.30am-6pm, Thursday 1pm-6pm, and Friday 9am-5pm. on Tuesdays they operate from Ashburton Chiropractic in Ashburton.

Award-winning farm

to open for public field day The Canterbury Ballance Farm Environment Award Committee is offering the public the opportunity to visit a top-performing high country station.

A

field day will be held on the 12000ha Omarama Station on November 6. The farm is owned and operated by Richard and Annabelle Subtil, who were the Supreme winners in this year’s Canterbury Ballance Farm Environment Awards. The Subtils also won the Environment Canterbury Water Efficiency, WaterForce Integrated Management, Ballance AgriNutrients Soil Management and Massey University Innovation awards. Judging co-ordinator for the Canterbury Ballance Farm Environment Awards Sandra Taylor said the field day is a rare opportunity for people to see how a supreme award-winning farm operates. “We are delighted to be able to provide members of the public with a chance to see why Richard and Annabelle won this prestigious award.

“The Ballance Farm Environment Awards recognise and celebrate that best practice on farm management is both good for business and good for the environment. “We are sure plenty of people will be keen to see such a diverse farming business and how sustainable and profitable farming practices have been implemented,” she said. The field day will include a tour of the farm to see how the Subtils achieve top performance in such a sensitive and challenging environment. At the field day, industry experts will also speak on a variety of topics including farm technology, irrigation efficiency, forage systems, stock and nutrient management, and eel recovery. BFEA judges noted that the Subtils demonstrated excellence in financial,

environmental and social sustainability. Production has risen significantly since the installation of a centre pivot irrigation system that was developed between 2006 and 2011 from 240ha of border-dyked land and now covers 560ha. The couple add value to much of the meat and wool they produce, they grow crops, generate and sell electricity and run a homestay business. For the past 11 years, the Subtils have also been working with local iwi and the Department of Conservation to promote

the regeneration of the native longfin eel population and a QEII National Trust covenant has been placed over 2500ha, including unique high country bog wetland containing rare native species.

Milk Fingerprinting technology set to cut testing costs Fonterra has been recognised for a new diagnostic test that helps to ensure a safe supply of milk and reduces the time and cost of testing

T

he co-op’s research and development arm won the Innovation Excellence in Research award at the New Zealand Innovators Award for Milk Fingerprinting held on October 21. Simply put, Milk Fingerprinting delivers the detailed composition in milk by light analysis and sophisticated computing. Fonterra chief science and technology officer Jeremy Hill said this new technology cuts some testing costs by more than 99 per cent and significantly reduces the time required for processing results. “Milk Fingerprinting means instead of some tests taking days or weeks, we can test hundreds of samples in seconds, cutting processing times and cost. However, its benefits go far beyond ensuring a quality, safe supply of dairy nutrition.   “The composition of milk varies seasonally, and between farms and regions. This means milk from one of our farms may be better suited to one specific product rather than another.  

“Milk Fingerprinting provides information about each farm’s milk so rapidly that when combined with our sophisticated tanker scheduling system, we can now send our milk to the manufacturing site that will get the most value out of every drop,” Dr Hill said. The technology behind Milk Fingerprinting highlights Fonterra’s strength in, and commitment to, research and development (R&D). The co-operative invests more than NZ$90 million annually into R&D, more than many large multinational nutrition and technology companies. The development of Milk Fingerprinting has been partially funded by Transforming the Dairy Value Chain, a Primary Growth Partnership (PGP) programme between the Ministry of Primary Industries, Fonterra and DairyNZ that aims to create new products, increase on-farm productivity, reduce environmental impacts and improve agricultural education.

GARDENING

Accents help break up the monotony

For a garden that’s both easy-care and easy on the eye the minimalist “less is more” look is well worth considering

SIMPLE: Classy containers deserve classy plants. Below – Clever use of blocks or bricks can also enhance your planting area.

SIMPLE, uncluttered garden design is especially appropriate when space is limited. Whether you want a serene look or something dramatic, you can achieve it by mass planting just a few carefully chosen plant species, each with strong features. Flowers are not essential (year round good looks and healthy foliage are more important), but as seasonal highlights they can make the garden all the more interesting. Mass planting by itself can be dull. Break up the monotony by choosing an accent plant that can be repeated throughout the design. Planting in pots adds extra zing and makes it easy to change or relocate your accent plants when you feel like a new look, or a change between seasons. As well as accents, every garden needs a strong focal point. Often a sculpture, this could also be a piece of furniture or garden architecture, a water feature, or just one stunning plant in a spectacular pot. Container gardening is a great way to enjoy getting your hands dirty. The trend is towards simplicity – bigger pots and less of them. Classy containers deserve classy plants, and those that last the distance. For pots in prime positions choose plants with a strong well defined shape, preferably symmetrical so that they look good from all angles. Cordyline red fountain is one such plant. Its cascading mass of bright burgundy leaves rises from a short central base, becoming thicker and more lavish with time. Tolerant of dry spells, cordyline red fountain performs exceptionally well in a large pot. Another spectacular container plant is cordyline caruba black. With wide shiny purple-black leaves and a strongly upright habit (up to 1.2m tall by 45cm wide), it makes a striking contrast in

WATER FEATURE: Every garden needs a strong focal point. both colour and form. Bromeliads and slow growing cycads (sago palms) are ideal container plants for warm climates. The favourite bromeliad for big pots is Alcantarea imperialis, a stunningly symmetrical plant with bold leathery leaves. Alcantera is a warm climate plant but will tolerate cold nights, and even light frosts once settled. Containers offer a no fuss way to enjoy the seasonal colour of bulbs and flowering annuals. When flowering stops, pots can be replanted or simply moved from view.

A fabulous summer accent plant for a warm climate garden is canna tropicanna. Fantastic in large containers, it is loved for its fiery striped leaves, followed by tall bright orange flower spikes. Cut right back in autumn the vibrant leaves reappear with fresh brilliance in spring. When we plant whole groups of a few carefully chosen varieties, the effect is bold and deliberate, bringing strength and character to the garden. But not all plants are suitable for mass planting. Anything with a down time is going to be a blot on your landscape for a large part of the year. So the first priority is to choose a plant that looks great for at least most of the year.

gardening without guesswork Question:

When is the best time to fertilise my Azalea? And what should I use?

Answer:

Fertilising azalea’s is pretty easy. There are three main times to do this, in early spring, then again immediately after flowering, and again in early autumn. We recommend that you apply the fertiliser at a rate of 100 grams per square metre around the dripline of the plant (where the outer parts of the foliage are). When applying, make sure that the fertiliser doesn’t come in contact with the trunk of the plant, and water well afterwards. Just how much is 100 grams? An adult handful is approximately 70 grams. Intelligro sells a fertiliser that is designed specifically for azaleas, and will also be excellent for rhododendrons and camellias! Because these plants are acid-loving, they require a fertiliser that is specific to their nutrient requirements so look for a top quality fertiliser designed for these types of plants.

GARDENING

Make plans for your garden now Rachel Vogan talks you through what to be doing in the garden now

WHO DOESN’T enjoy a bit of flower power? If you do, now is the time to get busy planting summer flowers, by dusting off last season’s hanging baskets and tubs, and packing them full of fresh flowers.

One of the wonderful things about growing flowers in pots is that they are portable and can be used as a diversion to highlight certain outdoor areas if the rest of the garden isn’t quite up to scratch. Why not try some new

combinations in those pots this year? The pots command full attention, meaning a few weeds here and there will hardly be noticed. Last season’s potting mix will be past its best, so start afresh with new mix and healthy plants.

Zinnias are a superb choice for summer colour. Bees love them and they are a reliable cut flower, too.

Sow sweet corn seeds now. Don’t be stingy, as the birds often snaffle a few seeds. Too many seedlings can always be thinned out and transplanted.

VEGETABLES

Can you spot the broad beans?

Broad beans will be flowering and the pods will start to fatten up. All other beans can be planted out now, as the seeds are big and easy to handle. They are a good option for kids to sow. Plant straight in the garden or in tubs and planters, space 25-30cm apart and put two seeds in each hole. If you end up with too many you can easily pinch the extra ones out. Spring cabbage is always a treat, so plant more now. The loose-leaf, Chinese varieties are ready to pick from planting in less than two months. These types love rich, compost-laden soils. Keep an eye out for slugs though, as they huddle under the base of the leaves and sneak into the crevices in between each row of leaves. Sweet corn should be sown now, too. Plant plenty as there never seems to be enough come harvest time. Allow a little space in between plants, putting two to three seeds per hole.

Azaleas, Camellias & Rhododendrons

These beautiful plants have been a popular choice in the garden over many years due to their beautiful blooms and welcomed colour after the winter months. Below are some helpful tips when it comes to planting and caring for your beloved azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons.

Where to plant

They like a free-draining, lime free (acid) soil. If you are planting in clay soils, try making a raised bed to help improve drainage. The growing environment is important, as it contributes to how well your plant will grow. The better the environment, the healthier the plant. They prefer a slightly shadier spot with some exposure to the full sun, so don’t be tempted to plant them in full sunlight. If you are looking to plant in full sunlight, talk with the team at your local garden centre as some varieties will cope with this. Before planting it is important to prepare the soil with organic compost, sheep pellets and mix thoroughly.

Planting

The best time to plant is from late winter to early spring before the new growth begins. A few hours before you plan to plant, give it a good watering. In your chosen spot, dig a hole 1 ½ times the width, and the same depth of the container that the plant is currently in. Remove the plant from its container and run a sharp knife down the root ball in varying places as this helps to encourage new root growth. Place the plant in the hole and firm the soil around it. Water after planting.

Feeding, mulching and watering

Apply 100 grams per square metre of fertiliser 3 times per year. Early spring, immediately after flowering and then again in autumn. Apply around the dripline (where the outer leaves lie) of the plant and be sure not to let the fertiliser touch the base of the plant. Water well after application, and continue with a regular watering pattern, giving the plant a deep watering rather than a light sprinkle. Add organic compost in late winter and then again in January. Keep a ring around the base of the plant free from mulch. These plants look great in the garden and are hard to beat with their wonderful burst of colour through late winter and spring. There are plenty of varieties to choose from so head down to your local garden centre to see what is on offer.

You could revitalise the old stuff with plenty of fertiliser and water storage crystals to hold onto the all important water. When choosing pots, big is best, not just because they look better, but they also have more room for the roots.

Bubblegum petunias are the perfect basket case.

FLOWERS

Sow and plant out summer flowers now. Go to reliable campaigners such as petunias and calibrachoa as they will provide a stampede of blooms for five to six months if planted early enough. Lobelia, salvia, marigolds and zinnias all thrive in full sun, too, and come in a range of colours. Sunflowers can be sown now as well. These germinate quickly and come in a range of heights, colours and sizes. For the shady side of the house, impatiens, begonias and monkeyflowers are good options. Dahlias are emerging; protect those sugary shoots from slugs and snails, and divide up any overcrowded crowns.

if you want summer flower power SOFT HERBS TAMARILLOS

Prune back any brown or frosted -looking fronds on ferns.

These wonderfully versatile fruits are an easy and reliable fruiting crop. New plants can be planted out now. Find a warm, sunny position away from severe winds, blend in a good amount of organic matter into the soil and plant. Secure plants with a stake if the stems look fragile. Prune central growing tips to encourage side branching – this is important if you want to be able to pick the fruit from the ground and not a ladder. Light frosts will naturally prune your tree. After frosts, remove old and dead wood. Fruit is formed on the new spring growth. Add fruit-tree fertiliser and a layer of mulch. It is essential to keep the soil watered through the summer months.

Tamarillos can be planted out now in warm, sheltered areas.

Chives, dill, chervil, basil, parsley and coriander can all be sown and planted now. Dill and basil need a little protection from late frosts, however, the others are hardy campaigners. All of these herbs are happy in tubs and planters; just make sure you freshen up the potting mix. Edible flowers are good companions in herb gardens, as well as brightening up the plot, they are a welcome food source for bees.

PAEONY ROSES

These have just started to bloom and they captivate most flower lovers. Even though they only flower for a couple of months, they are well worth the wait each season. Clumps can be lifted and divided in autumn when the soil is starting to cool down again. To encourage more flowers for next season, feed with bulb fertiliser or something high in potash, like strawberry or tomato food, after flowering. For picking, cut the stems when the petal colour just starts to show, the flowers will open fully once in a vase over a few days. Change the water daily to prolong the shelf life.

FERNS

Cut back any damaged leaves to the base of the plant, this will encourage a new flush of foliage. Did you know ferns are easy to transplant? And spring is a good time to do it. Many of the smaller ferns are ideal to grow in tubs and planters, too. They add a tropical and lush feeling to shaded outdoor areas. Remember, they do prefer a moisture-retentive soil. A side dressing of general fertiliser now will set them up for the season.

MOTORING

Holden workhorse with style STYLING IS just as important in the light commercial utility market as it is in any motor vehicle. Customisation and add-on kits are in demand from ute buyers and if you have a look at all the products in that segment, most manufacturers offer accessories or options which can dress up and transform a model. The most recent to come my way is Holden’s Colorado Z71 double cab, the top of the range model at $63,990. It gets a lot of extra kit over and above LTZ specification. Major inclusions feature 18in black alloy wheels, leather seats (heated), roof rails, tonneau cover, nudge bar, rear deck sail plane and a host of Z71 graphics. There’s enough kit there for the Colorado to stand out, and it certainly does, the test car was bright orange, one of five distinctive colours which make the Z71 different from the rest of the Colorado line-up. These features add about $4000 over and above the LTZ but it will certainly satisfy if you want to make a statement in the ute segment. And, what’s more, the Colorado test car certainly captured attention, I caught a Colorado driver looking over the test car when it was parked in the mall. With the additions and the standard fitment of electric driv-

SPECIFICATIONS

Price: Holden Colorado Z71, $63,990. Dimensions: Length,5083mm; width, 1882mm; height, 1780mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder longitudinal, four-wheel-drive, 2776cc, 147kW, 440Nm, sixspeed manual. Performance: 0-100km/h, 11sec.

er’s seat, rear view camera, cruise control, Mylink infotainment system, and seven inch colour screen, the Colorado Z71 sets high standards and, of course, it gets the safety kit which earn it a five-star Australasian New Car Assessment Program safety rating. Under the bonnet sits a 2.8litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine. This is an engine which has served Holden well, it is a twin-camshaft, 16-valve unit which has some impressive power outputs. Holden claims 147kW (3600rpm) with a whopping 440Nm (500Nm auto) of torque available from just 2000rpm. With such high figures the engine has definite grunt, it will pull solidly from anywhere in the rev band. Although an automatic gearbox is an option, the test car was a manual and that, too, would be my choice. Both are six-speed types, and if you add in the low ratios of first and second gear, slow speed movement over rough ground is a certainty. The entire mechanical pack-

HOLDEN COLORADO Z71: Accessories add flair to the working ute. age is designed for easy use. The gearshift slots directly and has no impairment through the gate; the clutch, too, is strong, but light enough so that it isn’t a tough on the leg in city traffic. Together they combine to produce progressive, smooth shifts. There’s also a dash panel graphic which indicates to the driver recommended upshifts. The Z71 has a four-wheel-drive system initiated by a shift-on-thefly dial switch. It is mounted on the centre console and activates a genuine low ratio transfer system or high ratio four-wheel-drive. There is also a hill descent control mechanism. I only took the test car off-road for a short burst, the weather was

foul, and I don’t like travelling in low grip situations when I’m on my own for fear of getting stuck. However, I needn’t have worried, the Colorado has high ground clearance of 210mm, so hills and mounds are no challenge. The suspension absorbs rough ground willingly, and with the low gearing and delicate throttle balance, it is easy to maintain steady slow speed movement. The gearing is designed for load carrying, and the first couple of gears need to be short-shifted, otherwise the revs will climb too quickly too early, and turbo boost will shut off just before the point of red-line. It spreads evenly towards the high ratios providing

very relaxed engine speed when travelling the highway. For the record, at 100km/h the rev counter is pointing to a lazy 1500rpm in sixth gear, resulting in an 8.8-litre per 100km (32mpg) instantaneous fuel use. Holden claim an 8.1l/100km (35mpg) combined cycle average which sits well with the test car’s 9.2l/100km (31mpg) average during testing. Incidentally, Holden New Zealand rates the Colorado double-cab wellside with the 3500kg tow rating, and a load area which measures 1484mm x 1534mm x 466mm. The ute market in New Zealand is buoyant, but for 2015 the competition is fierce, many manufacturers have new entrants, and those which haven’t have tempting packages to maintain market share. The Colorado Z71 stands up to be counted amidst the intensity, it is tough, yet appealing to a wide range of user/choosers.

There are cases out in the country where copper is still in use but regardless of the Choosing an electrician location, if building a new house, it makes Building companies and individual sense to have it fibre ready as this is the way builders have their own sub-contractors of the future. however, you may want to nominate an The fibre box has nothing to do with the electrician or you might be heavily involved electricity meter box outside a house.

Either way, decide on and make relates to the telephone and computer with contact with the electrician early. the telephone connected in the same manner “Your electrician can assist in organising as the internet, over fibre. the temporary power supply for a new build, a task that is not always straightforward,” Obtaining a quote says Greg Horton from A Electrical. “You A quote from an electrician is based on a will also need to book this early so that certain quantity of labour and components. power is on when the contractors need it.” Changes to position are acceptable while additions to this will be a variation in the Fibre optic quote. As it is not uncommon for changes Many towns in the Selwyn district are to be made to the electrical requirements wired for fibre optic cable and a powered at the time of building, remember that any fibre box is required to be fitted into new additions will add to the final price, meaning houses.

Asking for a quote where the price is to be a fixed amount to be paid is not the solution as this would mean that the tradesperson will need to allow for the worst case scenario when providing the fixed quote, which may result in the figure being higher. If the job ends up costing less than that quoted, it is unlikely that the tradesperson will refund any difference in price. A better option is to request an itemised quote that lists each individual part, cost and quantity, such as 36 lights, and also gives the total price. Also, ask the electrician for a plan of the layout rather than relying on the architect’s plan as this might be too generic. Knowing what you want for your new home’s electrical needs saves money and headaches later on. Talk to electricians to get ideas. That way you will already have decided on your needs so nothing is missed.

Residential Lifestyle Rural Property Licensed REAA2008

SOUTHBRIDGE - 134 High Street INVEST IN THE FUTURE Located on the edge of the increasingly popular township of Southbridge an easy commute from Leeston, Rolleston, Lincoln and Christchurch finds this very rare opportunity to purchase a superb lifestyle property that comes with serious upside. That upside being that this property was recently rezoned Living 1 allowing for immediate residential development or if you prefer landbanking. The extensive 230m2 four bedroom home nestled into 5.92ha of land has everything the busy family could wish for with its ample living spaces, country sized kitchen, two bathrooms including ensuite, outdoor dining in a sheltered setting, separate laundry and large attached garaging. Heating is by way of standalone logburner and heatpump-no more cold nights here. As an extra bonus there is a separate large standalone triple car garage. The land is flat and fertile perfect for arable activity or just grazing of livestock. The big plus is that this property is easily subdivided and has a provisional plan available featuring 56 sections. This is a unique, affordable opportunity in a corner of the fast growing Selwyn District so let the decision be yours-Lifestyle, Subdivide, Landbank or Investment - what is it to be?
