Property valuations soar in last three years VALUE UP: Property values in Selwyn continue to rise. Right: Average capital value (CV) and land value (LV) percentage changes from 2012 to 2015. Capital value is used for rating. TOM DOUDNEY

Selwyn property valuations have soared by 19 per cent for residential homes and 40 per cent for commercial premises during the last three years. The average farm value rose by 28 per cent. A revaluation carried out by Quotable Value for the district council showed there had been a 21.8 per cent overall increase in capital value since 2012. During that time, the number of rateable properties in the district has increased by 19 per cent

earthquakes to a boom in market afterwards. The bigger jumps in towns like Southbridge probably showed that properties had been undervalued there, he said. “It’s easier for a $300,000 property to go up by 29 per cent than it is for a $500,000 property to go up by the same percentage,” Mr Knowler said. About 27 per cent of the

district council’s rates, set annually on July 1, are based on the capital value of a property. Property owners should receive their letter with their updated property valuation in

mid-November. Objections must be lodged by December 17. Most property owners will find that the capital value of their property has increased. However, the district council has said this doesn’t indicate they should expect to see a significant increase in rates. The last time the revaluation was carried out in Selwyn, in 2012, 265 people – or about 1.3 per cent of property owners – lodged objections to revised rateable values.

Water restrictions likely again The threat of possible water restrictions has again raised its head with El Nino conditions forecast to affect Selwyn this spring and summer. The district council is urging residents to use water carefully. It has warned that if demand for water increases, restrictions on when people can water their lawns, such as those introduced last year, are likely in summer. The El Nino is predicted to be the strongest since 1997-98 and is likely to mean a dry spring and summer, increasing the demand for water. Rainfall levels have been significantly lower than normal this year, and groundwater levels have not had the opportunity to recharge as much over winter. The district council is monitoring groundwater levels and river flows and is found these are starting to show signs of stress. “So that we can continue to sustainably supply households with water over summer, we are asking people to avoid watering their lawns at times of peak demand and to take steps to conserve water,” district council asset manager water services

3

CONCERN: Lawn watering restrictions are likely in Selwyn as El Nino weather conditions look set to bring a summer dry.

Murray England said. “We are asking Selwyn residents on council water supplies to avoid watering lawns between 6am and 9am and 4pm and 9pm daily. Lawn watering in the early hours of the morning is preferred.” Watering a lawn for one hour in summer can use up to 1500-litres of water per hour – more water than a whole house-

hold typically uses in a day. Selwyn households use more than 1000-litres of water per day, significantly higher than a typical New Zealand household. Additional water bores are being brought online in Rolleston, Lincoln and Prebbleton this year and next year, while upgrades to the water delivery systems are completed or in progress for Doyleston and Leeston.

Environment Canterbury water take consents have also been varied for Springfield and Kirwee to account for increased demand. “We want to try to reduce the demand for water at peak periods, as it is expensive to add additional bores just to meet requirements at peak times of summer lawn watering,” Mr England said.

STREAM PROJECT SUCCESS Water quality in at least two Selwyn streams may be heading in the right direction, thanks to some innovative use of groundwater. A trial involved increasing the flow of two tributaries of Boggy Creek, near Leeston, by pumping groundwater from deep aquifers into the streams. This resulted in more consistent water quality, with diluted nitrate concentrations and increased habitat for aquatic species. The experiment is set to be repeated in the Waiwhio-Irwell River system from early 2016. Construction consents for the project have been lodged. LINCOLN PLAN Lincoln residents can now have their say on how their town should be developed. Consultation on the Lincoln Town Centre Plan is open. Key projects proposed include a pedestrian plaza on Gerald St with paving, seating and landscaping; separated cycle lanes; and converting several streets into car parking precincts. Community forums for residents to share their views will be held at the Lincoln Event Centre on November 16 and 21. Submission forms are available from the district council’s website, its Rolleston headquarters and the Lincoln Library.

A dairy farmer and St John stalwart has thrown his hat in the ring ahead of the first democratic elections for Environment Canterbury to be held in six years. John Sunckell announced his intention to stand in the October 2016 election at last week’s meeting of the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee, of which he is a member. Mr Sunckell, who is chairman of the St John Selwyn Central Area Committee, will seek the Mid-Canterbury spot as one of three rural representatives among seven democratically elected regional councillors. There will still be six commissioners. He said he was motivated by a desire to make sure ECan did not revert back to how it was before regional councillors were sacked and commissioners installed in 2010. “The relationship we (farmers) had with ECan was

Lincoln No 1 for international students consultative but was very much kind of a process of being told. We really struggled to engage through that period of time as a rural community.” When the commissioners came in, the difference had been “like night and day,” he said. “All of a sudden we had the opportunity to have discussions, we could talk one on one with staff, we could talk with the commissioners. It didn’t mean we agreed but all of a sudden the communication channels were open.”

Lincoln University has No 1 world ratings in the newly released International Student Barometer survey. The survey rated student satisfaction levels at 205 universities in 20 countries, including all New Zealand universities participated. In all, 161,304 international students took part. Lincoln was No 1 in helping students choose topics, in how it runs its accommodation and finance offices, and in administrative tasks such as helping students obtain health insurance.

Council to loan $8m to CPW

GRASS FIRES A controlled burn on Hoskyns Rd in West Melton got a bit out of hand around noon on Friday requiring the Rolleston Fire Station to send out one appliance. They managed to extinguish the 3m x 3m fire quickly. A fire spokesman said the appliance was only at the blaze for around 10min. Meanwhile, fireworks are the likely culprit of a blaze on Main South Rd, Dunsandel, on Sunday. Fire communications spokesman said one appliance dealt with the small grass fire on the side of the road at about 7.30pm.

TOM DOUDNEY

Central Plains Water chief executive has rebuked claims that the irrigation scheme is a bad investment for ratepayers. The district council last week voted 8-2 in favour of loaning $8 million to the company. District councillors Debra Hasson and Peter Hill voted against the loan while Mayor Kelvin Coe and district councillors Mark Alexander, Nigel Barnett, Jeff Bland, Pat McEvedy, Malcolm Lyall, Grant Millar and Sarah Walters voted in favour. Design work, land negotiations, resource consents and other costs for Stage 2 and the remainder of the scheme is calculated to be about $20 million. The Ministry of Primary Industries will pay $8 million and CPW’s approximately 350 shareholders will contribute $4 million. Cr Hill said there was serious uncertainty about affordability for farmers in the Stage 2 area as many would be faced with the conversion costs of newly irrigated land. “Most of the land in Stage 1 was already irrigated with groundwater.

Passers-by unable to save elderly man in crash TOM DOUDNEY

Passers-by tried desperately to revive an elderly man who died after crashing his car into a water race near Weedons on Wednesday morning. The crash happened on Robinsons Rd at about 11am. The Rolleston man, in his

80s, managed to climb out of the car and call his daughter before going into cardiac arrest and collapsing a short time later on the roadside. A contractor who was first on the scene attempted mouth-tomouth resuscitation but the man could not be revived. The man’s daughter arrived at

the scene to find her father had died. Senior Sergeant Pete Stills praised the efforts of the contractor and others who stopped to lend assistance. “We really appreciate their efforts and it reinforces what good people are out there trying to do good things for other hu-

WITH A BANG: One person was evicted for letting off fireworks in the crowd at the public display in Rolleston on Saturday night, but otherwise the crowd of about 15,000 was well behaved. The evicted youth had initially set off some fireworks in a rubbish bin before throwing sparklers into the crowd. Organising committee chairman Jens Christensen described the behaviour as “stupid” but said it was pleasing that most people had acted responsibly on the night. The annual event, organised by the Rolleston Residents Association with some money being donated to local volunteer groups, such as the Rolleston Volunteer Fire Brigade. The display, set to music, lasted for more than 12min. PHOTO: JO DEN HARING

man beings.” Senior Constable Andy Williamson said the contractor had recently received first aid training from his company. The cause of the crash is yet to be determined but there were no indications that another vehicle was involved. Senior Sergeant Stills said

the man had lost control of the car, driven onto the grass verge and into a farm fence before the vehicle ended up on its side in the water race. A defibrillator installed, in a Lincoln patrol car earlier this year, was also used for the first time during attempts to revive the man.

Having a fling Highland dancing performances were just one of the attractions for the crowd of 9000 at the fifth annual Hororata Highland Games at Hororata Domain on Saturday. This year’s games saw 300 competitors from heavies to pipers taking part in a variety of events. There were also 102 stall holders selling their wares, 200 volunteers working behind the scenes, and 350 bottles of Hororata whiskey sold. The Oceania Heavyweight Championship was once again a highlight of the event with Aucklander Reuben De Jong taking out the title. The Amateur Women’s Heavy competition was won by Karla Aekins, who broke field records in both the hammer throw and weight for distance.

Increasing nitrate concentration one of the biggest challenges District councillor Pat McEvedy The state of our environment in Selwyn is certainly an important topic for discussion and one of our greatest challenges is the increasing nitrate concentration in some water supplies. Last week there was an article in the Selwyn Times regarding an updated report released in June by Environment Canterbury. It stated that there was an area in Greendale where shallow monitored wells showed that nitrate levels had exceeded MAV (maximum acceptable value) which is 11.3 mg/l. Quite rightly, Community Public Health issued a warning regarding the possibility of nitrate poisoning occurring in babies under six months old, that are bottle fed with water from shallow wells in the Greendale area. Medical officer of health Alistair Humphrey immediately

EM R T X E IT’S

SOAP BOX stated that the increasing nitrate levels were linked to intensification of agriculture. However, the well with the longest records showed that in 1988 the reading was 11 and fluctuated in the intervening 22 years of records between a high of 16 in 1999 and a low of 2.5 in 2006. Clearly the generalisation that Dr Humphrey made did not take into account that while human occupation had been increasing for more than 150 years on the plains, real intensification had not occurred by 1988, as irrigation is the catalyst for this, and was not widespread at this stage. In the 1970s, the then Department of Scientific and Industrial Research tested some

E!

shallow wells east of State Highway 1 and found elevated nitrate levels. With no clear source it was concluded these could have been localised effects attributed to geological or soil conditions. Managing our communities’ desires for greater economic activity and controlling the environmental effects is an enormous challenge. ECan’s Variation 1 of the Land and Water Regional Plan that has put controls on the environmental impact of farming and other activities is certainly a step towards achieving this. The agricultural community, I believe, accepts that its environmental effect needs to be controlled, but playing the blame game will not achieve the desired result that we all want. We must ensure that we monitor, record and interpret data collected accurately, take individual responsibility and learn to understand how to control our impact on the environment.

Readers respond to last week’s article Call for resignation over plan to axe board. Nathan Bosher,Weedons Diane Chesmar should resign immediately. She obviously does not have the community’s interests at heart and as such has no place making representations on their behalf. To vote to disestablish the board “in order to give the community a chance to have a say on the matter” makes as much sense as cutting off the horse’s legs to see how fast it can run. Once the district council gets rid of the boards the community will never get a say on anything ever again. I am aware of some of the district council’s practices when it comes to railroading the communities of Selwyn. Without people like Alan French, Bruce Russell, and others who selflessly give their

Diane Chesmar

time and experience to the local boards, acting as the watchdogs for residents and ratepayers, the district council will walk all over those of us they pretend to represent. For Mrs Chesmar to suggest that Messrs French and Russell are “are two old chaps who think it’s a bit of mana” is nothing more than a petty insult to both gentlemen and everyone else who gives their time to their communities in any way. Furthermore, to suggest that simply living near Mr French or talking to Mr Russel means your opinion is worthless shows an appalling arrogance from Mrs Chesmar. Perhaps she would like someone to explain the concepts of ‘mana’ and ‘democracy’ to her. The best service Diane Chesmar can do for Selwyn Central is to resign. Perhaps the community can then find ‘some old chaps with mana’ to represent them in a manner they deserve.

Alan French


SELWYN TIMES

Gary Doyle,Weedons With regard to the discussions as to if the Selwyn Central Community Board should be retained I was appalled at the comments made by Diane Chesmar. There was no need for her to vote as she did as the council had decided to test the water anyway. As for her disgraceful references to Messrs French and Russell I believed that this showed a total disrespect for both gentlemen. To imply that they only stood for public office to ‘increase their mana’ could easily and correctly be taken to say that any person so standing was only doing so for the same reason. This would of course include her current employer. Given that Mrs Chesmar is opposed to people standing for public office, I assume that she has no intention of standing in any upcoming elections. Certainly if she did an about face and chose to do so then voters would do well to remember her recent comments. John McKim, Weedons When someone stands for public office and is elected to that position, it is not unreasonable considering they are being paid from the public purse for them to support the committee they are elected to and not undermine co-elected committee members.

Tuesday November 10 2015

Mrs Chesmar has chosen not only to not support her co-committee members but has actively campaigned to have the entire committee disestablished. To refer to her co-committee members as a couple of ‘old chaps’ only there for the accolades from the community is to say the least a bit rich. Those of us who have a cynical outlook on life would be left wondering if she intended to climb further up the political ladder. If this is her intention, voters should be wary of the validity of any statement she may make in the future and wonder just really where her loyalties really lie. People who stand for public office should do so with the welfare of the community at large firmly in focus rather than the financial return and perceived power that comes with their respective positions. Bruce Russell and Alan French should be commended for their dedication to the community at large rather than being vilified. Diane Chesmar should immediately tender her resignation. • Diane Chesmar was offered the opportunity to respond to these letters but has declined.

Referring to your article in the Selwyn Times and how the district council failed to achieve their five per cent target of public excluded meetings. Yet again David Ward has another reason (excuse) as to why they have failed to abide by their own targets. I, for one, having lived in Rolleston for 10 years, believe none of the district council’s promises or claims. Having experienced time after time more and more so called justified reasons why the council move the goalposts to suit their needs, I expect it every time. They ask for submissions and, from what I’ve seen, carry on regardless to do what they want, not what the ratepayers have asked for. Ivory towers comes to mind and I expect it to carry on. – Mike Green, Rolleston

A reader responds to the article More farmers compliant While it is pleasing to note the reduction in major non-compliance issues for dairy farms, only 64 per cent compliance is still a major issue. Our waterways are even more at risk than previously due to the continued increase in the number of dairy farms on land that cannot sustain them. For a long time it has been known that the waterways were being compromised with aquifers predicted to be affected by 2020. It was hoped that something could be done to halt this before then. Instead, the continued proliferation of dairying in Canterbury has meant this pollution is a reality in some areas already. – Rio Rielly, Kirwee

Bev Carter

Dan’s proud mother The mother of Southbridge’s favourite son, Dan Carter, wasn’t at the victory parade on Thursday – after returning last week from the final, she didn’t want to take any more time off her work teaching at Springston School. Bev Carter spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about the proud moments, broken windows and her fears and hopes for her son.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Watching the final was incredibly nerve-wracking even for us at home, so I can’t imagine what it must have been like there for you! It was an amazing atmosphere at Twickenham. There were 80,000 plus people there all in the mood, and the English put on a great display with the fireworks. It was a really lively atmosphere in the fan zone. But it was nervewracking, and a bit emotional too thinking it was Dan’s last game. How do you handle

the nerves when you’re watching? When Daniel’s kicking and when it’s tense I just don’t look. I can’t. I sit and mediate instead. I just think this for the team, willing the ball to go over. It looked like Dan was doing a bit of that himself. That was the first time I have seen him that wound up. Usually he wouldn’t do that, begging the ball to go over. But in that game he was playing with all his heart. Take me right back – what was Dan like as a kid? He loved the outdoors and he would be outside any moment he could get. He was always pretty laid back, and he always helped others in need, like his classmates if they needed a hand. It’s going back a long way, but he won a citizenship award for caring for others when he was at school. Did he always want to be a rugby player even when he was really young, or did he have

other ambitions? It was a toss up between rugby and cricket. He was passionate about both and good at both but rugby won in the end. Was there a moment he had to make a choice? No, he had to give up cricket because he was getting stress fractures in his back, because he was a fast bowler. So no, it was not really a choice. But rugby was always his greatest passion. What did he get in the most trouble for as a boy? I know you’ve talked before about the numbers of windows he broke trying to kick balls over the house. He did break a few, but he didn’t really get in trouble for doing that, because it’s one of those things you’ve got to expect when you’ve got rugby balls and cricket balls flying everywhere. But he didn’t used to get in much trouble at all. So he was a good boy?

He always was. It must be strange to see him with his own boys now. What’s he like as a dad? Well he is away a lot, which is hard for him, but Honor is a great mum for the boys. And when he’s home he’s always out with them or playing with them. Marco’s good with a ball so he spends a lot of time out with him. Do you have to remind him to phone home? No, he will ring every now and then, and we quite often do the Skype thing too when he’s away. So obviously you’re more than just Dan’s mum, so tell me a bit about you – were you Canterbury born and bred? Yes, I was brought up in Southbridge, on a farm. I went away to Teacher’s College and I taught for a while in Gore, but I came back and got married here. How did you meet Neville? It was a blind date. They don’t always end well. Well, this one did. It must have been very strange for the family, to see him develop such a high profile, and deal with all the pressure and all the media coverage. It must be pretty hard sometimes.


SELWYN TIMES

Tuesday November 10 2015

GRASSROOTS: Dan’s passion for rugby started early, and he was dedicated to his first rugby team, the Southbridge Midgets. It was, and it still is strange really. I don’t like to think about it too much. But for everyone here he’s still the boy next door, and he’s still very grounded. I think that’s part of why he enjoys coming back home so much. He never gets too big for his boots, and if he tried we wouldn’t let him. Are you going to be able to be there for the victory parade this week? No, I’m working. I’ve just had a lot of time off work, so I’m not going to take more off even to go to the parade. But my husband, Neville, will be there to see him.

And I’ll go into town after work to see him. Dan’s obviously working on his autobiography at the moment – has he let you have a sneak peak? He has, and we’ve talked a bit about it, but I think it’s changed a bit since he got us to read some of it. Did you give him any advice? Well, we put our two pennies’ worth in, but I don’t know if he’ll listen to any of it. But writing the book was something he felt needed to do, just to show another side of him.

As a mum, it must be very hard to see him play such a physical sport, when there’s always the potential he could be badly injured. Oh yes, it always has been, right since he was a little boy. Seeing him get injured has always been one of the hardest things about it. Does that mean you’ll be glad to see him retire? I will be, and I’m sure it will happen very soon. He’s still got plenty of years ahead of him, so what do you think he might do with them? I think he wants to try many different things and he has many different options, but what he does will be up to him and he’s got a lot of time to decide. I imagine you’ve had plenty of proud moments, and those kicks in the final must have been up there – but what do you think would have been your proudest moment as Dan’s mum? Probably when in his speeches he acknowledged it was not just him, it’s the team, and that it doesn’t just take one person. That made me very proud. And I am proud of all the time he takes to interact with his supporters. That was going on all night there, and his composure with his fans was really good to see. And of course his performance on the field. He is the kind of person who works so hard toward his goals. All those things make me proud.

Old school paintings reappear in time for 150th anniversary GOOD FIND: A painting of Doyleston School.

TOM DOUDNEY

Paintings of schools which haven’t existed for more than 70 years were rediscovered in time for Leeston Consolidated School’s 150th anniversary. The paintings of Doyleston School, Brookside School, and Lakeside School were found amongst the possessions of former Leeston resident Bill Millar, who died 30 years ago. The schools were amongst five which merged in the 1930s and 40s to form Leeston Consolidated School. The paintings were part of a display at the anniversary celebrations held recently in Leeston. They were discovered by Mr Millar’s daughter, Barbara Pickering and her husband Bill, who were sorting out some family possessions they had in storage at their home in Lincoln. Mr Millar, who died in 1985, was a former pupil of Doyleston School, while Mrs Pickering attended Leeston

Consolidated School. Mrs Pickering said she had no need to hang on to the paintings herself and having found them while the 150th anniversary celebrations were still in the planning stages, it seemed the perfect opportunity to pass them on. “I don’t know how dad ended up in possession of them,” she said. “He knew a lot of people because he was a local boy and he used to drive the local art group to some of their painting exhibitions or where they wanted to go.” The painting will now be

hung in the Leeston Consolidated School staff room Teacher Alison Boon, who chaired the 150th anniversary organising committee, said they had been a timely find. “It’s a part of our history that we are glad we have got.” Mrs Pickering said she had greatly enjoyed the 150th anniversary celebrations. “I’ve been telling people that the Friday night was a five throat lozenge evening because my throat gave up and I had to keep sucking lozenges to keep on talking.”

In character MAKE BELIEVE: The wolf (Bailey Hickling, 11) gives Goldilocks (Liam Egan, 12) a scare during preparation for Rolleston School’s performance of Revolting Rhymes by Roald Dahl. Year 7 and 8 pupils staged the production in the school hall on Wednesday and Thursday last week. Dahl’s book was a parody of traditional folk tales. PHOTO: JANE HICKLING

Centre stage West Melton School pupils performed at a kapa haka festival held at the Rolleston Community Centre recently. Altogether there were about 600 pupils at the event, which was organised by Rolleston Christian School and also attended by Weedons School, Rolleston School and Clearview Primary. Rolleston Christian School principal Liz Horn said she had been approached by kapa haka tutor Matua Anton about initiating the event as he wanted children to be able to showcase what they had learnt during the year. “We both felt that by putting the invitation out to the other schools in the local community we would be developing a nice sense of whanaungatanga (belonging),” she said. “We would very much like to have it as an annual event.”

Help us keep water flowing over a long, hot summer... El Nino conditions are forecast to affect Canterbury over spring and summer. The El Nino is predicted to be the strongest since 1997-98. This is likely to mean a dry spring and summer in Selwyn which will increase demand for water. So that we can continue to sustainably supply households with water over summer, we are asking people to avoid watering their lawns at times of peak demand for water and to take steps to conserve water. The best times to water are shown below:

When to water your lawn Don’t irrigate between 6-9am or 4-9pm daily

Let us know what’s going on with your club or team Email tom. doudney@ starmedia.kiwi or phone 982 9305

JUMPING CLEAR: Springston’s Steffi Whittaker, 15, is in pole position to win the FEI World Jumping Challenge’s South Island category A section, after a good result in Ashburton over the weekend. Whittaker finished runner-up, riding Ngahiwi Cruise, in the second leg of the challenge, held at the Ashburton Area Grand Prix Showjumping Show on Sunday. This follows her third place in the previous round, held over Labour Weekend. She now goes into the final leg at the South Canterbury North Otago Area Show in two weeks’ time, five points clear of West Melton’s Sally Spicer on Weiti Eros. Harry Feast, also of West Melton, won the Equestrian Sports New Zealand Morrison’s Saddlery 7 Year Old Series, riding Double J Bouncer. At McLeans Island, also on Sunday, the CNC95 class of the FEI South Island One Day Eventing Championships was won by Zoe Haylock, of Greenpark, on Artwork.

Check weather conditions before watering While there are no water restrictions at this time, we recommend you check weather conditions before watering. Watering your lawn during the middle of the day during hot days or when a Nor’ West is blowing results in a lot of water evaporating and watering in these conditions is not recommended. Watering on a cooler overcast day is a better option as provides the best opportunity for water to soak into your lawn or garden. Irrigate wisely 12am 10pm

Tips for managing your water use ∙Water your garden and lawn every few days rather than every day. Wetting the soil surface every day encourages roots to develop at the surface, making them more vulnerable to hot dry spells ∙Water for shorter periods. For example, setting your system to run for three 5-minute intervals over a couple of hours lets the soil absorb more water than watering for 15 minutes continuously ∙Using watering cans or watering plants by hose uses less water than a sprinkler ∙Don’t send water down the drain. Set sprinklers to water plants, not the driveway, footpath, or buildings ∙Use mulch or cover the soil with organic matter to keep the soil moist. Mulches protect plant roots from the drying effects of sun and wind and reduce weeds ∙Check you have the right sprinkler head. It should apply water gently so it seeps into the soil. Some sprinklers apply more water than the soil can absorb ∙When planting new additions to your garden choose drought-resistant plants that don’t require a lot of water ∙Inspect hoses and taps indoors and outdoors to check for leaks which waste water. If demand for water increases over summer then water restrictions may be introduced requiring households to avoid watering lawns at specific times. Summer water restrictions are commonly used in New Zealand as a way to manage demand for water.

Rating revaluations out soon Property owners in Selwyn will receive an updated rateable value for their property over the next week. Since a rating valuation was last carried out for Selwyn in 2012, there has been a 21.8% overall increase in capital values in Selwyn. The 2015 revaluation was carried out by Quotable Value (QV) on behalf of Selwyn District Council. Business properties showed the sharpest rise in property values between 2012 and 2015, with the capital value of these properties rising by an average of 40%. The value of farming properties also rose more than the average for Selwyn – with the capital value of farms rising by 28%. Residential property values rose by an average of 19%, but property value increases vary by township. Around 27% of Selwyn District Council rates are set based on the capital value of a property, with some rates also set based on a fixed amount per property (such as for library services). Some services such as building and resource consents are funded through user charges for services. Most property owners will find that the capital value of their property has increased, however this doesn’t indicate they should expect to see a large increase in rates. Rates are set annually on 1 July based on the amount of income the Council needs to provide services. As the average increase in capital value for Selwyn was 21.8%, property owners whose values increased more than the average can expect a higher than average rate increase from 1 July 2016. Property owners whose capital value change was less than the Selwyn average can expect a lower than average rates change next year. Property owners can object to the valuation if they wish to.The letter outlining your new valuation has information on how to make an objection. Objections must be lodged by 17 December 2015.

Help us keep water flowing

as El Nino approaches

The rating value reflects the likely price a property would sell for on 1 July 2015 - the effective date of the valuation - excluding moveable chattels like curtains and appliances.

On the roads this week Road repairs are planned to Bellam, Ellesmere, Marshs (between State Highway One and Shands Road), and Trents (between State Highway One and Blakes Road) Roads with stop and go signs being used by contractors to control traffic.

El Nino conditions are forecast to affect Canterbury over spring and summer. The El Nino is predicted to be the strongest since 1997-98. This is likely to mean a dry spring and summer which will increase demand for water.

Road repairs are also planned to Telegraph (between State Highway 1 and Highfield Road), Two Chain, Leeston Lake and Wards (between Courtenay and Aylesbury) Roads, which will remain open with traffic controls in place. Work to remove high shoulders along roadsides will take place along Ellesmere, Ellesmere Junction and McDrurys Roads and traffic controls will be in place.

Rainfall has also been low in 2015, so ground water levels have not had the opportunity to recharge well over winter. Ground water levels and river flows are starting to show signs of stress. So that we can continue to supply households with water over summer, we are asking residents on Council water supplies to try to avoid watering lawns between 6am-9am and 4pm-9pm daily. These are times when households use the most water.

This week resealing work is planned along Feredays, Burts, Tramway and Heslerton Roads. Stop and go signs will be used for traffic control. Maintenance grading work is planned around the Darfield, Sheffield, Hororata, Lincoln and Tai Tapu areas, with roads remaining open.

During a particularly dry summer water supplies are placed under pressure as many people decide to water their lawns and gardens at the same time in the evenings. Demand is particularly high at the weekends in the evenings. Between 9pm and 6am is the best time to water lawns as demand for water is lowest and water has the opportunity to soak into the ground. If you are considering watering your lawn between 9am and 4pm please check the weather conditions first (see our advice below).

Where work is not completed this week, work will continue next week.

In 2015 an additional bore was installed for Rolleston, and new bores are being installed later this year for Prebbleton and Lincoln. In Doyleston, a second pipe was constructed earlier in the year to connect the town’s reservoir to the pipeline supplying the town from Leeston. This is helping to provide Doyleston with more constant water pressure. In Leeston an upgrade to the well has also been completed to provide both Leeston and Doyleston township water supplies with more capacity.

Batting first, South Malvern were rolled for 102 in the 35th over with only two batsmen reaching double figures in their match against Greendale at Glentunnel on Saturday. For the visitors, Tig Dalley benefitted from the poor South Malvern batting effort, finishing with bowling figures of four for 15. Greendale knocked off the small total with the loss of only one wicket and 18 overs to spare. Photographer Karen Casey was there to capture the carnage. Results: South Malvern 102 (M Pauling 38, T Dalley 4/15) lost to Greendale 103/1 (N Jenkins 48*) by nine wickets at Glentunnel. Leeston-Southbridge 189 (T Field 49*, D Miles 37, R Clarke 5/18) lost to Oxford 190/4 (D Fleming 68, A Mitchell 46*, A Hooper 2/12) by six wickets at Rangiora.

The menu changes weekly and incorporates seasonal delights with Sue and Emma’s ethos, which is preparing whole food into something quite special. This means there are a lot of options for those with special dietary requirements. Not to be missed is their sweet treat taster, which has delightful delicacies that contain no added sugar, egg or dairy. Also available are the dripper coffees – a

specially blended fusion of beans which are skillfully prepared and provide a new coffee experience – quite unlike anything you’ve tried before. There are a wide range of dining options available at Memorys, whether it is a casual pop in for breakfast or lunch, booking in for their private dining experiences for eight people or more, a meeting with nibbles in the lounge, or sharing your meal or party with a larger number, taking advantage of the pizza oven situated in the sheltered courtyard. Sue’s husband has created the amazing spaces that customers appreciate. Styled in old-world charm, these gorgeous rooms provide spaces where you can always find something new and exciting. The café is open from Wednesday to Sunday, from 10am to 4pm, and evenings by reservation only. Come and visit Memorys and be treated not only with magnificent food, but with superb service.

1/4 brown or red onion, finely chopped 2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander leaves 1 Tbsp minced jalapen˜o or serrano chilli (optional) 2 large avocados 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice salt and freshly ground black pepper Using a mortar and pestle, mash together chopped onion, 1 Tbsp coriander and 1/2 Tbsp chillies (if using) to make a rough paste. Transfer to medium bowl. Cut avocados in half lengthwise and remove stones. Use a spoon to scoop flesh into bowl with the onion paste. Gently mash and mix with a fork until chunky smooth. Fold remaining coriander and chilli into mixture, tasting along the way to check heat. Fold in lime juice, add salt and pepper to taste, and serve with a basket of corn chips or slices of cucumber. — Serves 4

Bring on

Show Weekend!

The buzz around Canterbury this week is certainly in full swing! Cup and Show week is a fabulous time of year, and definitely marks the countdown to Christmas and New Year (now that is a scary thought!) This week not only brings out the fancy attire, visitors to the city, and plenty to see and do in town, it is also a great weekend to get stuck in out in the garden.

Tomato time! SHOW WEEKEND Show weekend is a great weekend to get your tomato plants in. This is typically when the weather settles enough to not worry too much about the cooler weather affecting your plants. Here are some handy tips to get you started.

Preparation You got it – preparation is key! It is recommended that you don’t plant new tomatoes in the same spot as last season, or where potatoes were, as there can still be diseases in the soil that can affect the growth of your new plant. Prepare existing beds with Organic Compost and Sheep Pellets, and

Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser. You can then add South-Hort Tomato Mix to the top layer to enhance the growing environment. If you are planting in pots, use the Tomato Mix straight into the pot, no need to add fertiliser prior to planting.

• Fill the hole with the remaining mix, and press gently around the base of the plant • Tie the tomato to the stake using plant ties. If you haven’t got any of these, old pantyhose work a treat too. Once tied, give the plant a good watering

• Choose a pot or container that is at least 35L

• Partly fill (roughly ¾) the pot with SouthHort Tomato Mix. Put the stake in ready for tying once planted

• Tie the tomato to the stake using plant ties (or pantyhose). Once tied, give the plant a good watering

• Loosen the root ball of the plant and place in the centre of the pot

Fertilising and watering Tomatoes are gross feeders, meaning they need a lot of nutrients to sustain healthy growth and produce a good crop. The more nutrients available, the better the plant will

grow. Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser is designed specifically for the nutritional requirements of these plants.

Fertilising Tomatoes in garden beds

At the prep stage: apply 200 grams per square metre and mix with the soil. Once established, apply 100 grams per square metre every 4 weeks during the growing season. Mix well and water after application. Keep up a consistent watering routine. They’ll need plenty of water and nutrients to produce their fruit.

Vintage TREASURES A nostalgic Diana Noonan finds the beauty in classic blooms WILD PRIMROSE

FORGET-ME-NOT

(Primula vulgaris)

THE OTHER day, I found myself frustrated at being unable to locate the site of a derelict cottage my siblings and I had played beside as children. As I wandered up and down the deserted farm road, it seemed that the elements and time had combined to reclaim the old tumble-down building and that I was destined never to find its remains. But just as I was about to give up my search, I noticed, peeping through the short, sheep-cropped grass, some bright spots of colour. They were wild primroses, the very same flowers that we had picked as children to take back to my mother, and they were still blooming in what were

the remnants of the old cottage garden. In the same way that gnarled macrocarpa trees mark out the spots where colonial homes once stood, hardy, vintage flowers stand as signposts of gardens now forgotten. As a self-sufficient gardener for whom edible beds, by necessity, take priority, I value flowers that look after themselves and that bloom, year after year, with little or no attention. If you are a time-pressed gardener, who longs for something pretty in a bed you have little time to tend, seek out these vintage treasures for yourself. They will reward you in so many ways and, who knows, may still be blooming when your great grandchildren come searching for them.

(Myosotis)

Commonly known as the ‘wild English primrose’, this little, pale-yellow, delicately scented treasure is typically no more than 10cm high. A native of Europe, it grows best in moist, preferably well-drained soil, in light shade, and miraculously continues to bloom in pasture cropped by stock. It is perfectly suited to woodland gardens, where left to its own devices, it will happily naturalise. Several subspecies produce flowers in white, pink, red and purple. If you find these treasures growing in the wild, enjoy them, but resist picking the flowers or digging up clumps to take home. Instead, search them out from specialist nurseries. These primulas divide easily and before long you will have a colony of your own.

Perhaps it is because it self-seeds so freely and is so content to grow in shady, damp, forgotten places, that we often overlook the fact that we can plant this old-fashioned treasure in our own gardens. Not only that, but we can enjoy it in shades of pink, white, as well as blue, and also in blue with yellow centres. As with all survivors, they are happy to grow in moderately fertile to poor soils and, although they will tolerate shade, full sun for part of the day will help them look their best. Sow the seeds of forget-me-nots in spring or early summer. If you become a fan of these little flowers, why not try your hand at some of our native Myosotis? The Chatham Island forget-me-not (Myosotidium hortensia) is the giant in the family and is said to enjoy ‘head in the sun, feet in the shade’. •Continued on page 32

WALLFLOWER

HEART’S EASE

Fragrant wallflowers are a relative of the cabbage (brassica) family and although they are available in a range of colours, including lavender, pink and ivory-white, it is inevitably the bronze and yellow blooms that you will find in forgotten gardens. This old-fashioned, hardy cottage plant appreciates a well-drained, moderately fertile and sunny home, but will also grow in poorer, dry soils, which no doubt explains why it is such a survivor. A species that includes annuals, biennials and perennials, it is usually grown as a biennial, as it tends to become woody after its first flowering. Lightly cutting back the growth on perennials after flowering can keep this to a minimum.

Known by the sweetest of names, including heart’s delight, tickle-my-fancy, Jack-jump-up-and-kiss-me and lovein-idleness, heart’s ease simply refuses to be knocked back and continues to flower years after a garden has gone into recession. It even spills over and can often be found on the edge of nearby roadsides. This smart little flower protects itself from rain and dew by drooping its head in wet weather! Seed, which is available from Kings Seeds, can be sown in spring or summer in a fine mix. Keep it well-watered. The plants, when large enough to be transplanted, are tolerant of shade but enjoy full sun as well.

PIT Trades Youth Guarantee students are learning practical skills that not only lead to careers but are benefitting our community. Under the free New Zealand governmentled Youth Guarantee scheme, CPIT offers young people aged 16 to 19 years who have left school the opportunity to study and learn practical skills in areas such as the creative industries, computing, business, health, hospitality as well as trades. The skills acquired on these courses help students gain pathway into further study. In the six-month Introduction to Construction Allied Trades at CPIT, several student building projects are being donated to worthy causes such as Ronald McDonald House, the charitable trust that helps the families of sick children. CPIT joinery tutor Nigel Jamieson said these projects were real world learning opportunities that also gave back to the community. “When it’s finished they say, ‘wow’, and I hear a lot of them say, ‘actually I think I could build my own sleep out or playhouse’. And I tell them that’s great, now they can see how it’s done. They come away with a real sense of empowerment and achievement, which makes me proud to be a tutor,” Jamieson said. Youth Guarantee student D’Braye Kemp, 18, is hoping to carry on his studies in the exacting trade of joinery at CPIT next year. “It’s important to me to learn it right and get it right,” he said. Another example of high-spec Youth

Getting it right: Pictured working on a playhouse project destined for Ronald McDonald House are CPIT joinery tutor Nigel Jamieson with CPIT Youth Guarantee carpentry and joinery students, from left, Justuss Binnie, 16, D’Braye Kemp, 18, Liam Quinn, 16, obscured Aaron Skipper and Khylas Broughton, both 16.

Guarantee work is the sleep out recently donated to a social development trust at New Brighton. It was one of five made at CPIT Trades this year, with the added challenge of a curved roof line. Positive Directions Trust general manager Phil Tikao said the sleep out would make a difference to those accessing the trust’s social development services for the first time. “We haven’t really had a space for one-on-one interviewing, so we will use the sleep out as a nice, friendly space for talking to people and counselling. To have been gifted something like this just means so much to us.”

Aoraki Polytechnic

Red Cross First Aid Ensuring a safe work place

Imagine a classroom where students can use Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and the like…..and the tutor won’t mind at all.

I

magine a classroom where the students can attend concerts and events, sports games, go to court to watch a trial or to a council meeting to see the inner working of local body politics. That’s the reality of Aoraki Polytechnic’s media communication programme based at the CPIT campus in Christchurch. But that doesn’t mean the students don’t do any work. The polytechnic has embraced the rapidly-changing media environment for the entry level programme as students learn to write news stories and features, create radio news and programmes, shoot and edit video stories as well as getting in front of the camera. Tutor Dale McCord says the way the course operates is just the way it should be. While the course focusses on core skills, it educates the students about the many changing skills someone working in the media or communications business needs to have. “It’s not enough just to love writing these days. Students need a whole raft of skills so they can fit into a media environment where they are expected to be multi-skilled.” Print journalists now need to be able to step in front of a camera and provide a news video while a television journalist might have to write a story for the web and provide photos. McCord says the best thing about today’s students is that they are so adaptable and keen to try anything. They come equipped with social media skills and are able to connect quickly with people online. “I do have to do a bit of work to encourage

them to get out and actually talk to people face to face but they quickly grow in confidence doing that.” Students might feel they are going back to primary school for one part of the course – spelling and grammar which, McCord says, is a key skill for a journalist, now more than ever. “These days copy can be put online with very little input from anyone else so people have to be very strong in these core skills.” The students produce news bulletins on Compass FM and their own programme called Plugged in with Aoraki on Plains FM while the course also covers media law and ethics, photography and presenting. There are limited places available on this programme for 2016. For more information on Aoraki Polytechnic’s Media Communication programmes visit www. aoraki.ac.nz or call 0800 426 725.

ALL IN A DAY’S STUDY: Aoraki Polytechnic’s media communication course uses the city as part of their classroom.

L

earning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? Not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. It is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. Take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPR. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings. Imagine the feeling of inadequacy when someone asks ‘does anyone know first aid’ only to find that you were not taught these skills on your course. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. New Zealand children

3 33

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in Australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. Fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. In times of emergency, such as the Canterbury earthquakes, many people were called upon to do first aid in a situation well beyond their comfort zone. This is the community resilience that we as good citizens should be trained for. Lives were undoubtedly saved as ordinary people pushed themselves into a role that they never expected. It is not difficult, and courses are not complicated. But one day, you will be called upon to help someone in need. Will you know what to do? If you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

motoring Kia Sorento major player in SUV line-up After a busy 2014 with the launch of new Soul and Pro_ cee’d GT, along with Cerato, Optima and Sportage upgrades, this year has been a bit quieter for Kia New Zealand. However, one of Kia’s major players, the Sorento, has just entered a new generation, and while its shape and size is altered markedly, it is true to the concept which has earned it a great reputation in the sport utility market. The Sorento is a large, capable, seven-seat SUV which has enjoyed healthy sales in New Zealand. In its latest iteration it lands here from $49,990 to $61,990 in both two and four-wheel-drive forms, with petrol and diesel options within the six-model range. The test car was the rangetopping diesel limited model which is equipped with a host of specification options such as full leather trim, satellite navigation, keyless entry and ignition and a host of other specification items. As before, the new Sorento has the option of a 2.2-litre four cylinder diesel engine, and it was that which was fitted to the evaluation car. It is the R-series unit which is shared with Hyundai, the two giant Korean conglomerates are heavily

SPECIFICATIONS

Price: Kia Sorento, $61,990. Dimensions: Length,4780mm; width, 1890mm; height, 1690mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, four-wheel-drive, 2199cc, 147kW, 441Nm, sixspeed automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 9sec.

involved in a component sharing and research and development programme. Even though the R-series engine isn’t new, it has constantly been refined to the point where it can well be regarded as one of the automotive world’s great engines. It is strong, smooth and delivers with remarkable fuel usage figures. Kia rate the 2199cc unit with a 7.8-litre per 100km (36mpg) combined cycle rating, which fits well with the trip computer’s read out, it was constantly sitting at 9l/100km (31mpg) along with a 7l/100km (41mpg) instantaneous figure at 100km/h, the rev counter pointing to a lazy 1750rpm at that speed. The engine is also listed with power and torque figures of 147kW and 441Nm respectively. Both are realised low in the rev band at 3800rpm and 1750rpm2750rpm, and with its delivery through a six-speed conventional automatic transmission there is a solid flow of energy, all done in a whisper quiet and smooth manner.

KIA SORENTO: Seven seats and substantial internal space.

It needs to be a punchy engine, the Sorento now weighs in close to two-tonne; it is a bulky model, but that translates well to internal space. The Sorento is a classic example of why SUVs and the Kia range have become so popular. It offers all of the advantages of a large station wagon, yet it moves with the simplicity and driveability of a vehicle nowhere near its bulk. I took the test car on my favourite cruising road – State Highway 72 below the Malvern Hills. It travels the long straights with quiet motion and reacts well when a corner or two arrive. The Premium model sits on Korean-made Kumho tyres (235/55 x 19in), bearing in mind

that lower grade models get 17in wheels, yet the ride quality doesn’t appear compromised, in the test car’s case comfort levels are high. Drive is sent through a high quality and sophisticated fully independent suspension front and rear. The rear axles are located by a multiple link system, while at both ends the spring and damper rates are set as a good all round compromise between ride quality and the firming need for the odd journey off road. It was raining on the day I went testing so I was hesitant about going off the seal as such. The prospect of a big clean-up afterwards wasn’t appealing, so I only tackled a short shingle

road stretch to evaluate how grippy the four-wheel-drive system was. It is a permanently engaged system whereby the driver has no switchable control. I can report that on the streaming roads the steering feels firm and the tyres tightly connected to the road, there is a lot of reassurance built into the system. The Sorento sits high, although you wouldn’t think so getting in and out, it’s quite carlike. But with 185mm of ground clearance you can feel confident when travelling cross country that it won’t hang up on undulations. Even though the global SUV market is still buoyant Kia doesn’t have its own way in the large vehicle segment; nevertheless, the third generation Sorento is a force to be reckoned with. And with so many options within the range its adaptability will impress.

Devon Park offers both peace of mind and choice to those looking for solid, affordable foundations on which to build in Rolleston. Unlike most of Rolleston, this subdivision is located on rich loam soils which will provide an excellent growing medium for gardens and lawns. Devon Park is just 20 minutes from the Christchurch CBD and within walking distance from established shopping and leisure facilities. Rolleston is growing both residentially and also commercially. The Aquatic Centre is a real draw card for all ages, which is located next to the large recreation park currently under development. A new secondary school as well as a third primary school is now committed to the town by the Ministry of Education. The Southern Motorway and proposed extension provide an excellent expressway into Central Christchurch and beyond, without the much talked about rush hour gridlocks occurring on the Northern Motorway. The future for Rolleston just gets brighter and brighter. Rolleston is the place to be both now and in the future. The price includes internal fencing! Over 150 sections already sold with only a few remaining. This is your last chance!

TAKING A WALK-THROUGH WITH YOUR

ELECTRICIAN

There are lots of decisions to make when building a new home and one that begs thoughtful consideration is the wiring needs.

T

he builder will provide your electrician with a house plan and before meeting with you, he is likely to have gone over the plan and worked out where the lights, plugs and access points for telecommunication connections should go, based on best value for the client. The electrician will have identified the most appropriate places for lights and sockets and what might be needed. Your electrician should meet with you and take you on a walk-through of your house, at the time of construction. The

purpose of this walk-through is to identify where you would like power connections. “Many people do not know what they want and may end up getting sold everything,” says Greg Horton, owner of A Electrical. “The key is where to spend the money – what you want, not what you should have.” Greg advises people building to consider where their furniture will go, such as the best place for the television, the lamp and bedside lights. He insists on a walk-through before the pre-wiring and asks clients how they will use the house.

See website for details

www.peterrayhomes.co.nz

“I give them a highlighted copy of the house plan. This shows where the lighting, power and connection points for televisions, telephones and computers will be so they can take it home and think about the placement of each. They can then make any changes before the electricians start,” explains Greg. Greg says that rather than worrying about the position of lights on the ceiling, it is better to think about where you want light for a particular cupboard or workspace, and rather than think about the position of every plug, consider instead where power will and will not be required. The electrician will expect to wire up for a range hood, dishwasher and all standard items, so they may not be indicated in your plan, but check that they are allowed for as well as checking that the position of lights and plugs are as discussed. Greg says it is important for people to be decisive as once wiring has started, changes will mean a higher account with the cost of materials and labour time increasing. After the walk-through and when changes are made, your electrician should provide another itemised quote based on what you have requested to be done.
