Charities to benefit from showbiz initiative TOM DOUDNEY

The Lincoln Club is staging a new initiative to bring crooners to Selwyn while boosting the coffers of charities. Country music star Suzanne Prentice will play at The Lincoln Event Centre on Monday night and the club will donate the money it receives to the Foundation For The Blind’s guide dog training appeal. Club president Lynn Townsend said the concert signalled the beginning of a new

path for the club – one which would have benefits for the community and beyond. “We are targeting the older people, which is where a lot of the club members fit in the demographics, but the idea is to try and bring some different acts to Lincoln and in doing so, to also raise some funds for different charities.” Mr Townsend said the club was in the fortunate position of having made good profits in recent years, meaning it had

BIG IDEAS: Lincoln Club president Lynn Townsend says Monday’s Suzanne Prentice (inset) concert is just the start of a new initiative to bring entertainment to the town and raise money for charity.

cash to spend. “Rather than just give those funds away, our idea is that we will use the current profits of the club to underwrite these shows and hopefully turn them into profitable events from which these charities can benefit.” Future events would benefit different charities – whether national, regional or local. Being in such a strong financial position was a new experience for the club, which had been struggling to turn a

profit before abandoning its former Edward St premises and buying into The Famous Grouse Hotel in 2009. The move didn’t immediately pay dividends as the hotel was irreparably damaged in the September 2010 earthquake. “A lot of that money just went down the road in dump trucks when the pub was demolished so we basically had to start from scratch again which meant having to borrow money. We have now largely paid that back.”

With those events behind them, the club was finally in a strong position again. While Mr Townsend didn’t know which other acts could be lined up in future, one they were hoping to secure at some point was the Topp Twins. • The concert will take place at The Lincoln Event Centre on Monday, 2pm. Tickets are $20 from Hammer Hardware and Challenge service station in Lincoln.

But Mr Coe said all council wanted to return to full democracy but it varied how fast and the process to do it. Buck went on to criticise Waimakariri mayor David Ayers and Ashburton mayor Angus McKay for also supporting the retention of some non-elected commissioners for ECan.

He said most of Canterbury’s councils supported a partial return to democracy for ECan post 2016. District councillor Pat McEvedy, also a member of the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee, said what was very unusual was

Mayor Kelvin Coe has brushed off criticism from Christchurch Deputy Mayor Vicki Buck over Selwyn’s support for retaining Environment Canterbury commissioners. However, Mr Coe said the district council supported a return to full democracy but saw an advantage in having a transition period to get there, so that the culture and expertise of the serving commissioners was not lost all at once. “There are always some councillors that carry over from one election to another – I can’t think of a single other time when all the councillors were replaced.” Submissions on plans to introduce seven democratically elected regional councillors but retain six appointed commissioners were held in Christchurch on Wednesday. Mr Coe’s submission had been supported by all of Selwyn’s district councillors except for Peter Hill and Debra Hasson. Christchurch deputy mayor Vicki Buck wrote on her Facebook page that she had heard Selwyn mayor Kelvin Coe “unbelievably” speaking against

CPW LOAN The district council has voted to approve, in principle, a loan of up to $8 million being made to Central Plains Water Limited, subject to a satisfactory loan agreement being negotiated. The terms and conditions of the loan will be presented at the December 9 district council meeting. Consultation on a proposal to make a loan received 132 submissions. Of these 72 per cent supported the district council advancing the loan, and 27 per cent of submissions opposed it.

Darfield makes top 10 Homes completed in Beaumont Park in rural recycling Darfield area farmers are among the best when it comes to rural recycling. Agrecovery, which assists farmers to recycle their empty agrichemical containers for free, has ranked its top 10 collection sites from around the country. In spite of not having a permanent collection site in Darfield, Agrecovery events in the town have collected more than 5500kg of container plastic in the 12 months. This puts it 10th in volume in Agrecovery’s national network. Methven was first with about 14,000kg of container plastic recycled and another Canterbury collection site, Temuka, was seventh with about 7000kg. Darfield farmers will have another opportunity to add to their tally when the next collection takes place at the local PGG Wrightson on December 16, 10am-2pm. Agrecovery sales and marketing manager Duncan Scotland said the Darfield events were well attended. “This next event will probably be the last one as we will be opening a permanent collection site here in early 2016.”

GOOD EFFORT: Darfield is in the top 10 for recycling plastic containers through Agrecovery.

Mr Scotland said it was pleasing that Canterbury’s recycling volumes were growing faster than the national average. “Since Environment Canterbury’s 2014 ban on burning farm plastics raised awareness of the risks associated with burning and burying, we’ve seen a real stepchange in recycling behaviour.” Recycling with Agrecovery is free for most container brands due to industry support from 64 manufacturers and distributors.

While the first two homes to be completed are slightly over the ‘affordable’ price threshold, BT Builders is currently building an affordable home which will be finished in the third stage. BT Builders director Brad Tucker said new homes within the $450,000 bracket were attractive for first home buyers wanting to access their KiwiSaver HomeStart grant. “We’ve noticed an increasing number of customers want cost certainty near the start of the project, so they can make sure there are no hidden costs and the property is within their budget once completed,” he said.

BLACKENED: Rolleston Chief Fire Officer Nigel Lilley has praised the efforts of his brigade after they stopped a large paddock fire from destroying two commercial chicken sheds on the corner of Jones and Weedons Ross Rds on Thursday. The fire, which spread over an area of about 100m by 200m, flared up from the remains of a pit fire which had been lit several weeks back. “The guys and girls [of the brigade] worked really hard to stop it, otherwise it would have got into the chicken sheds and all the neighbouring properties.”

Call for funding boost TOM DOUDNEY

The district council has been asked to consider doubling its funding of new community centres. The Dunsandel Community Committee has called for the district council to put in 20 per cent of the cost of building its new hall, estimated at more than $3 million. It has so far only committed to 10 per cent because that is its policy across the district. However, the community committee says it needs more help to ease the burden on its 600 ratepayers and the council should change its policy. Committee members Russel Dalziel and Ray Seebeck made a deputation to Wednesday’s district council meeting. “We would like the council to consider a greater contribution, so instead of 10 per cent we would like the council to consider 20 per cent,” Mr Seebeck said. “This will help build our community project and we believe if its built without compromising the quality, through lack of dollars or council support we will have a very good asset for the future.”

REPLACEMENT NEEDED: The old Dunsandel Hall was demolished in 2012.

Mr Dalziel said 10 per cent would make it too tough for ratepayers. “We have to be very conscious of the burden we put on ratepayers in paying too much debt back on buildings like this so that’s why we would like to keep this loan figure down as low as we can.” He said the committee would support 20 per cent being the level for community centres across the district. “We think that 10 per cent across the board is just way too low for the whole district,” he said. “West Melton are probably

going to need more than 10 per cent. We know Lincoln probably got started with more than 10 per cent. Prebbleton, Rolleston [facilities] are all going to need a big chunk and I think it’s time that council changed their policy on what they provide for these facilities.” The district council is still considering how will fund new facilities in future, including whether a change to district wide rather than targeted rating system of funding for community centres is needed. “Asking for a 20 per cent contribution from the council is a pretty significant ask and we

don’t actually have any budget set aside for that at the moment,” Deputy Mayor Sarah Walters said. Chief executive David Ward said upping the district council contribution to 20 per cent would have implications for the budget over the next nine years of its Long Term Plan and any changes would not be made until the 2016-2017 Annual Plan came into effect. The district council decided it would let the Dunsandel Hall project go out to tender so it could get a more accurate estimate of the final costs for the project.

Kaituna River improving Kaituna River has been named as the most improved river in Canterbury. The river, located on the way to Birdlings Flat, was awarded the Morgan Foundation award after testing showed dissolved inorganic nitrogen had declined steadily. Dissolved inorganic nitrogen is a combination of nitrite, nitrate and ammonia. The decline showed positive signs for the river, particularly as much of the improvement is through lower ammonia concentrations. Ammonia is highly toxic to aquatic life and is associated with fresh faecal contamination. Environment Canterbury commissioner chairwoman Dame Margaret Bazley received the award in Wellington on Thursday. Dame Margaret said it illustrated the good progress being made with the local community to improve the ecosystem health of the Kaituna catchment. “The area is very important to Ngai Tahu, who used the Kaituna Valley as their traditional pathway to Te Waihora (Lake Ellesmere) to gather mahinga kai,” Dame Margaret said. The river is hill-fed, feeds into Lake Ellesmere and is 4000ha in size and 15km long.

Ladbrooks couple’s quake project Rob Dally and his wife Jan have written a book about the restoration of Christchurch’s historic Riccarton House where he was the manager for more than seven years. Gabrielle Stuart reports Before the earthquakes hit, Rob Dally was ready to retire from his role as manager of Riccarton House. Aside from several broken chimneys, the house survived the September 2010 earthquake remarkably well. But the February 2011 earthquake was a different story. Mr Dally was eating his lunch in his office when “all hell broke loose”. “I was trying to hold everything up, I didn’t even think about hiding under my desk,” he said. When the ground stopped shaking, he joined the people gathered outside. There were a lot of white faces, he said, as they took stock of what had happened. “It didn’t seem a good time to retire,” he said. The damage to the building included visible cracks in the ground, and in the walls. Fireplaces had completely collapsed, the ornate facades buried under mounds of fallen bricks. And as they took stock over the next few weeks and months,

more damage was discovered. As damaged plaster was stripped back from walls, existing problems like internal rot and faulty wiring were discovered, which insurance money would not cover. The oldest part of the house was built in 1856, for the Deans family – some of the earliest European settlers in Canterbury. With so many heritage buildings lost in the earthquakes, preserving the history and legacy of the house for Cantabrians was even more important, he said. “Having worked there for seven and a half years, I fell in love with the place and the people who worked on the place loved it too. It kind of has that effect on people.” But restoring the building was more challenging than it sounded. Even a simple piece of skirting was very difficult to replace, because the moulding used to create it no longer existed. New pieces would have to be crafted by hand. Two of the chimney pots had smashed, and a potter had to

in, each with unique skills. The majority were older people, some who had not used the techniques for many years. “If you had to do the same thing in 100 years’ time I don’t know if you could, because so many skills would be lost.” Realising the work they were doing should be documented, he started recording what was happening each day while his wife Jan took photographs. be found who could create pots identical to the remaining ones.

RESTORED: “Granny” Catherine Deans’ bedroom was one of the worst-damaged in the February 2011 earthquake, but after years of work from skilled tradespeople like Robbie Lange (above), the room now looks almost identical to what it was before the earthquakes.

Moody’s mixed emotions All Black prop Joe Moody says he initially had “mixed emotions” about his unexpected Rugby World Cup call-up but that all changed when he found he would be doing more than carrying bags. He spoke to Tom Doudney Heading out the door to play for Canterbury against Southland in the ITM Cup, the All Blacks were the last thing on Joe Moody’s mind. It was shortly after noon on October 10 and all that was about to be changed by a phone call from Canterbury coach Scott Robertson. For now, however, the Lincoln club stalwart had no idea that not much more than 24 hours later he would be getting off a plane in London. “I wasn’t giving the All Blacks much of a thought. I hadn’t been getting up and watching their

games. I had only sort of been watching the highlight packages because I was focused on playing for Canterbury and doing the job there,” Moody said. After missing out on the squad he didn’t see himself featuring in the World Cup. “I had no expectations, once I missed out on that squad, of actually being called in because generally speaking, Woody (Tony Woodcock) and Crocky (Wyatt Crockett) have been pretty good with injuries.” The phone calls, first from Robertson and thenAll Blacks manager Darren Shand, left him

with mixed emotions at first. “I was pumped that I was going to be part of the World Cup and back with the All Blacks again but at the same time in the back of the head, I thought this might not be as good as what I thought it was going to be. I’m here playing good game time with Canterbury, we are going into finals, potentially another ITM Cup win, and I am probably going to go over to the World Cup just to be a bag holder,” he said. “I thought Crocky would go into the starting line-up and Ben Franks would come onto the bench and I would just be that extra one. So I thought, ‘I’ll be there but I’m not actually going to see any game time and I’m just going to be a human tackle bag’. “I wasn’t all too excited when I thought about it like that but that soon changed because as soon as I got there they said you are in the 23 this week and from then on I just grabbed that opportunity with both hands and just tried to make the most of it.” After being pulled from the Canterbury team to play Southland and spirited halfway around the world, Moody replaced the injured Crockett in the first 20min of the quarter-final against France. He then went on to play the first 60min of both the semi-final against South Africa and the final against Australia.

after Cup call-up

Moody’s father Tony, mother Mary-Jane and partner Emma Dennis had booked flights to the United Kingdom but cancelled them when he wasn’t named in the All Blacks squad. However, his father, partner and an uncle booked new flights after Moody was called up and watched all his games from the stands. Moody said the hype and “huge atmosphere” at Twickenham gave him a few nerves leading up to the final but at the same time he had felt a quiet confidence. “I just felt really good going into it. The whole training week had been really good, I was clear on my roles and everything and I got the feeling from the rest of the group that everyone else was the same as well,” he said. “It wasn’t a cockiness or arrogance or anything, it was just kind of a calmness, I guess. No

one was overly excited or anxious or anything and there was just a really good feeling around the team.” Moody said he had no particular superstitions or pregame rituals but whereas other players liked to listen to music, he preferred to sit quietly and visualise what he wanted to do in the game. While he had been confident throughout the match, it was clear when Beauden Barrett scored in the final minutes that they were going to win the cup. “I didn’t jump up for joy or anything, even though all the rest of the boys all jumped up, I just kind of sat there and soaked it all in and thought ‘you bloody beauty’. ” Moody said the feeling at full time was “pretty awesome” but it had taken a couple of days for it to fully sink in that they were

world champions. Being part of the parades on the return to New Zealand, he had been blown away by the support from fans. “It was great to see what us winning meant to everyone.” In his spare time, Moody likes building things at his father’s place – a car trailer and log splitter are among the things he has made – and going hunting. However, this year he won’t be able to relax too much over the Christmas break. While other All Blacks have been taken time off until January before joining their Super Rugby camps, Moody has opted to join his Crusaders teammates for training in December to avoid a repeat of his fitness struggles last season. “I started the season a bit sloppy and it took me almost half the season to get where I needed to be and by that time the coaches had put me on the back burner and I was only getting 20min a week off the bench,” he said. Moody said he was glad the attention from the media and public had died down a bit since the World Cup and admitted he had thought twice before agreeing to speak to The Star as he didn’t enjoy being in the limelight. “I’m not really a big fan of it, I would just rather just kick back and go under the radar,” he said.

CLUB CONNECTION: Joe Moody shakes Lincoln club captain Gary McCann’s hand during the All Blacks World Cup victory parade in Christchurch.

Before Moody caught the eye of Canterbury and All Blacks selectors, he made a name for himself playing for Lincoln. Because of his duties for region and country, Moody doesn’t take the field too often for Lincoln these days – he played one game last year and six the year before that when he was on the comeback trail from a broken ankle. However, as the club’s only All Black, Moody is a popular addition to the starting lineup when he is available and Moody says he turns out for the club any chance he gets. “I love playing with my Lincoln club mates because most of those guys I have played with since under 13s, under 15s. That was when I was back playing for North Canterbury and they were playing for

Ellesmere, so we used to play against each other and then played together with them for Canterbury Country.” Moody first joined Lincoln when he was studying at Lincoln University and living in the halls of residence. Rather than joining the university side, he decided to play for the town side along with his old Canterbury Country mates. It’s those friendships which have kept him at the club in spite of living in St Albans, Christchurch these days. Lincoln club captain Gary McCann said having Moody as a member of the club was quite a drawcard for younger players. •The Lincoln Rugby Football Club welcomes new players. Anyone interested in joining the can call club captain Gary McCann on 029 201 3393.

Xmas light show bigger and Prebbleton’s dazzling Christmas show was lit up on Saturday. Georgia O’Connor-Harding spoke to Carl Seaward on why he is not a fan of Christmas, how he has to listen to the same song for 160 hours and what inspired this year’s theme of trains

BRIGHT LIGHTS: Carl Seaward with wife Maureen at one of their many popular shows.

Hi Carl, thank you for speaking with me. How long have you been running the Christmas Light Show for? It is the eighth year we have done Christmas lights. When we started we only had a couple of thousand lights. Now we think we have got about 600,000 lights. We’ve lost count. Wow, 600,000 lights! I take it you use a lot of power. It is not a huge amount of power because most of the lights are LED and they don’t use a lot of power. Our search lights probably use up more power than what the actual light show does. Has the light scene developed a lot since when you first started? Absolutely. Every year it goes through transformation where we change the theme, change the displays and build new light structures. We come up with new ideas and play different music. Every year is a new experience.

Heading to Christchurch Hospital?

Plan your trip. Canterbury DHB’s Park & Ride service, running between the Metro/Brewery car park and Christchurch Hospital, has carried more than 200,000 passengers since it was set up in late October 2014. From 1 December 2015 it will run from a new location at Deans Avenue (the old Sale Yards). There’s plenty of parking and the cost of parking is $5 a day. Journey times on the free shuttle will be around 15 minutes, similar to the existing shuttle, and it will run to the current timetable 7 am to 8.30 pm, 7 days a week.

Learn more at cdhb.health.nz/parking

That is so exciting. Whose idea was it to put on such a show? Originally it started with my wife Maureen. Back in the early days she started collecting soft toy Santa bears. That collection grew to animated Christmas characters and we ended up putting up a couple of thousand lights. From there it has just kept on growing. Do you also have a lot of music involved with the show? Yes we do. It is actually a light show rather than a display. All the lights are synchronised with music. I spend most of the year programming it. I programme the lights into the songs and we do stuff from AC/DC, Dooby brothers to Beethoven. Do you like to mix the traditional Christmas scene with more modern culture? Yes, absolutely. We don’t do Christmas carols. Basically it is a live show experience so you don’t come out here expecting to listen

to Christmas carols because that doesn’t happen. Why is it best not to have Christmas carols? To synchronise one song with the light show it takes me 160 hours on average. That is 160 hours I am listening to that piece of music and there is no way I am going to listen to 160 x nine (because we have nine songs) hours of Christmas carols. So I basically select music that is popular but music I enjoy. Are you a big fan of Christmas? No, my wife and I are a big fan of meeting people. The whole month we are running it for, we spend outside talking with people and getting feedback from those who have come out and experienced the lights. It is magic and it has become addictive. Tell me about the theme for this year. This year for the theme we have gone with trains. Last year we did a white Christmas theme with a big snowman and it was snowing between songs where as this year, we have set up trains everywhere amongst the displays. We have created a whole new experience which should be quite popular.

brighter each year LIT UP: One of the many light show displays at 650 Shands Rd.

What would you say has been the most exciting theme in previous years? Probably the most popular theme was actually a Pirates of the Caribbean display we had for Halloween. It was popular with the kids. We incorporate the Halloween display in amongst with our whole Christmas show. Personally I would say this year is the best show we’ve put together. Now I have to ask, have there been any issues with neighbours due to the music and lights? No, we have no issues with neighbours. Our closest neighbour is about 200m away. But we have to do traffic control

because last year more than 33,000 people came through. So we have traffic control on Shands Rd. Hundreds of road cones get put out and the speed gets reduced from 80km/h to 30km/h. This is every night from November 28 just to make things safer. Was it a large process getting these procedures put in place? Yes, we had to get a resource consent and submit a traffic plan. We have to get people to monitor the traffic and get the signage. It was a huge expense and undertaking but we are fortunate Fulton Hogan helped us out there. They gave us a bit of sponsorship and supply the

signage and cones. And it is all set up on 650 Shands Rd? Yes, and we do a $5 entry charge per person which helps with Maureen (my wife’s) treatment and helps fund the show. Would you be able to tell me a bit about your wife? My wife suffers from Lyme disease which is caused by an infected tick. My wife is now in a wheelchair. She can’t do anything of what she used to do. She used to do the artwork and painting around here. She now takes on a supervisory role. We get friends that come out and set up the display rooms for her. Your wife is a key role to the light show? She basically tells people of which characters she wants and where she wants them because she knows what she has got of her massive collection. I just focus on building the light show. Thank you Carl, all the best for your light show. The Christmas Light Show will be running from 8.30pm-midnight every day to December 30 on 650 Shands Rd.

One of the local branches is the Rolleston Community Network, run by volunteers to welcome new residents to the area. Coming in new to Rolleston can be very daunting if you come from another part of New Zealand or from overseas. Some people just need a little encouragement until they find their feet. Newcomers to Rolleston can phone co-ordinator Joyce Davey on 347 8217. They then can go on the email list and be notified of the monthly morning teas or other activity that might be planned. A visit can be arranged to find what they are looking for in their new town. The district council has a very good booklet with all the information about Rolleston. Some very firm friendships have been developed over the years through the network. More information can be found at www.newcomers. co.nz/regions/canterbury/ rolleston

Have your say

Sound, workable legal advice and solutions

Greater Christchurch – Parliament needs you to have your say about the clarification of legal property boundaries under the: • Canterbury Property Boundaries and Related Matters Bill Land movement caused by the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes has made it difficult for surveyors to locate some legal property boundaries. This is because survey pegs and markers may no longer match official survey plans. The Bill would clarify this law, and also allow for guidelines to be issued about standards set under the Cadastral Survey Act 2002, which manages the accuracy of the information in the cadastre (register of real estate). You can read the Bill at: www.legislation.govt.nz. You can submit your thoughts to Parliament’s Local Government and Environment Committee on the Parliament website, or you can post your submission to: LGE Committee, Level 10 Bowen House, Parliament Buildings, WELLINGTON 6160. Submissions close 15 January 2016. Please mention REF#BOUNDARIES15. Your submission will be shared on the Parliament website, so please separate your contact details from your submission.

SELWYN PARENTING NETWORK A group for parents and caregivers of children of any age. Providing local events, activities, speakers, workshops and picnics. The group was formed in June 2010 after a group of parents met while attending a weekend workshop at Lincoln University. After a weekend of learning and sharing, the group decided to meet regularly for a coffee and catch up to offer continued support for each other. It then diverged into organising workshops and events. Recent events included a family fun day in October and there are plans for a children’s day in March. The group aims to support and work with existing services in Selwyn and help reduce gaps as they are identified. Its committee meets regularly and has been successful with funding applications to ensure continued support can be offered to local families.

Keep your children safe in cyberspace BY ELLESMERE COLLEGE CYBERSAFETY OFFICER KALA MORTON With increased use of technology in society we have to learn a new range of skills to keep ourselves safe. Many schools now have an education plan that deals with educating students about appropriate ways to behave online. The focus will be around appropriate etiquette online, keeping safe and where to report problems to. There are a number of things

parents and caregivers can do: •Know the filters and parental controls on the internet at home and also any devices that connect to the internet; phones, tablets, computers, gaming devices. If you are not sure then search on the internet “setting up parental controls on …”.  Don’t be afraid of rules such as all devices in the kitchen overnight, no Wi-Fi after 9pm or even unplugging the wireless router and taking it with you when you leave the house. •Increasingly, ‘sexting’ is becoming a concern for New Zealand parents.  It seems to

SOAP BOX becoming a ‘normal’ behaviour amongst many teens with peer pressure a huge part in influencing people to conform, create and send indecent images. Sometimes these images are sent in a trusting relationship, but once the relationship ends they can be

sent to others maliciously, uploaded to pornography websites and used for blackmail.   Conversations about the harm sharing these images can do are important. •Learn about what your children are doing online … what apps / websites are they using?   Common Senses Media (www. commonsensemedia.org) has reviews and information about different media (films, games, apps, websites), allowing parents to become knowledgeable about these. •Conversations are the most powerful way of keeping your children safe.  Discussions about what is personal information, how much information do you share, do you know all of your friends in

the online world, what do you do if someone wants to meet up , what are the privacy settings on different websites. If your child tells you about an issue, praise them for talking to you about it, acknowledge they have now done the right thing and you will work through the issue together.  Parents and caregivers need to be proactive about finding out about what their children are doing online and seek out information about current issues. Follow Netsafe on Facebook to find out about current online issues in New Zealand and visit www.netsafe.org.nz for more information. •Bullying movie, p15

Harvey World Travel Rolleston

Rolleston Square (next to The Warehouse)

A Great Travel Experience is the Elephant Hills wildlife luxury adventure tours that take people into Thailand’s Khao Sok National Park, a sanctuary for mistreated elephants. “You can care for and interact with the elephants,” advises Sue. Something you would do towards the end of a holiday as it is likely to blow you away.”

The team at Rolleston’s Harvey World Travel have been overwhelmed by the support they have received from the local community, since opening six weeks ago. “People have been really enthusiastic and delighted to have a travel service in Rolleston. We’ve had people drop in just to say hello,” says Sue who loves working in the community that is her home. “Customers appreciate our old fashioned values in the way we sell travel. We work closely with our suppliers though our customers’ needs always come first. We ascertain what our customers want from a holiday or trip then suggest ideas that will enhance that experience.” Paul and Sue started their journey with Harvey World Travel in 2014 and always intended to open an outlet in Rolleston. Paul and Sue also own the Blenheim store which operates as an independent satellite store so Sue is able to dedicate her time to Rolleston. The Blenheim store has great staff and a capable team leader. “We’re working on some amazing itineraries for customers illustrating that the people of Selwyn have put faith in us,” says Sue.

This two night/three day package includes paddling canoes and staying in glamorous tents with ensuite bathrooms, at a surprisingly good value of $679 to $829 per person (twin share) which includes breakfast each day, three lunches and two dinners. Over the holiday period, Harvey World Travel will close at 2pm on the 23rd December and re-open on Tuesday, 29th December with reduced hours of 10am-2pm until 31st December. They will re-open again on the 5th January with normal trading hours just in time for their New Year On Sale Specials giving customers the chance to book a winter break on a Pacific island or somewhere else hot, as another year of work begins. Harvey World Travel can be found at Rolleston Square (next to The Warehouse) and you can contact them on 974 2010. Alternatively, email rolleston@harveyworld.co.nz or check their website: www.harveyworld.co.nz/rolleston.

The team at Harvey World Travel have found that world events are not preventing people from choosing to travel and this is global.

Sue

“There are many safe travel destinations such as Alaska and Vietnam which is trendy at the moment. The South Pacific and Australia are still very popular places for a short break away while cruising is the new millennium thing to do and an amazingly safe way to travel,” informs Sue.

Students’ award-winning movie on bullying A group of Ellesmere College students have won an award for a silent movie targeting bullying. The students, aged 12 and 13, were one of 20 groups from around the country to win an award in the Outlook for Someday sustainability film challenge. The challenge asks young people aged up to 24 to make short sustainability-related films of any genre, up to five minutes. The Ellesmere College film UNstuck is a plea for the voice-

less victims of bullying and a challenge for the complicit bystander. A judging team of 11 people from media, education, Government and business selected the 20 winners out of 156 entries that came from all over New Zealand and involved 550 young people. The winning film-makers will be honoured at The Someday Awards red carpet ceremony at the Aotea Centre in Auckland on December 10. The Element Audience Fa-

vourite award will also be voted on during the night with the winning film-makers receiving a prize package which includes a Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 Camera donated by Photogear. The prize package for the film chosen as The Body Shop Standout Winner will include a mentorship with Someday Ambassador Te Radar and director, writer and producer Peter Bell. The objective of the project is to help grow a generation of sustainability storytellers.

n Wednesday, December 2, the Selwyn Youth Council will hold a Twilight Market at the Darfield Skate Park from 6 to 9pm. There will be live music, bouncy castles, free skate lessons and market stalls run by young people. Colleen and Maureen Marsh at the Sewing Room also love Christmas. Every year, their range of Christmas decorations in store increases and this year is no exception. If wanting decorations for the tree, a centrepiece or wreath, or a more sizeable display, then visiting this shop is a must. Their Father Christmases are adorable and the stunning Christmas panels, a talking piece. They also have Christmas themed fabrics that are ideal for making something unique for the home or a gift, and their shelves are packed with items for gifts whether large or small, from scented items through to children’s and baby wear. There is a festive atmosphere at the Terrace Winebar and Restaurant, too, where the team has been catering for endof-year functions for clubs, workplaces and individuals. While heavily booked, they still have space for diners or groups with separate areas available in their covered conservatory, out on the decks and garden, or inside. They offer a range of set menus in various price brackets for groups and à la carte dining with a new

menu. Remember too, their special nights are Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Father Christmas arrives in Darfield on Thursday, December 17, at Mason’s Drapery. He will be there from 1.30pm to 4pm on the 17th and 18th (Friday) and from 10am to 12noon on Saturday, December 19. Every child will receive a small gift, so stop by after picking up the children from school. While there, browse the gift ideas in store which are ideal for adults, children and babies. These include clothing, accessories and toys for all ages and gender. Rosalie also carries ladies’ footwear and has on special the ‘Walkable Travellers’ which are an ideal walking shoe. On Thursday, December 17, and Friday, December 18, Trinity Church is running a holiday programme for children aged 5 to 12 years. There will be games, crafts, the Christmas story, morning tea and music. Spaces are limited so if interested, contact Susan Baldwin on 03 317 9079. The following Sunday, December 20, local churches will combine for their annual Christmas Carol service which this year will be at Darfield Baptist Church at 5pm, while Darfield Life Church will hold a service at 6.30pm. Come Christmas Eve, Trinity Church will hold a children’s service at 5pm and at 10.30pm, a candlelight service with Holy Communion. On Christmas Day, mass is at 8.30am at St Joseph’s Catholic Church with 9.30am services at Darfield Baptist Church, the Cooperating Parish (Methodist and Presbyterian) at Trinity, St Ambrose in Sheffield and St Georges in Kirwee.

Help us keep water flowing over summer

Fire restrictions

introduced

We would like to thank the households on Council water supplies who have been avoiding watering lawns during times of peak demand. Until last week, we have been able to provide consistent water pressure to properties with these voluntary measures in place. Over the past week, Selwyn has been hit by some of the hot, dry weather we were anticipating due to the El Nino and demand for water for lawn watering has increased noticeably in the evenings. We would like to request that where possible households continue to avoid watering lawns between 6am-9am and 4pm-9pm daily. The recommended times to water your lawn are in the evenings between 9pm and 6am. If you are considering watering in the daytime (9am4pm) we recommend checking conditions first and choosing a cooler, overcast day to reduce evaporation. If demand for water continues to increase the Council may introduce formal water restrictions. We would like to avoid doing this if possible by requesting your assistance with this. If demand for water is particularly high, water pressure will be reduced to sustain the supply. Environment Canterbury has now restricted water consumption for a number water supplies due to low ground water levels.

When to water your lawn Don’t irrigate Between 6-9am or 4-9pm daily A restricted fire season is now in place across the rural plains area of Selwyn district.Under the restrictions the only types of fires permitted in rural areas are gas barbeques, fires in drums and crop residue fires. There are a number of conditions which must be met before fires can be lit – see www.selwyn.govt.nz for details. Selwyn households are also being invited to sign up to the Selwyn Gets Ready website to be alerted of high fire risk days over summer. Fire risk changes from day to day. Generally days with high temperatures and nor west winds elevate the fire risk, especially when there has been low rainfall. Local volunteer firefighters are anticipating a busy summer as El Nino conditions are forecast to affect Canterbury.

Check weather conditions before watering We recommend you check weather conditions before watering at this time. 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

The Selwyn Gets Ready website is a database which contains contact information for local residents. This information is used by local community response teams to identify who needs assistance in an emergency and who has skills or resources (like first aid skills) that could help in a disaster. In an emergency a network of community response teams operate in Selwyn and are responsible for checking on people’s welfare, identifying what needs to be done in their area and requesting assistance if needed. The Selwyn Gets Ready system can also be used to send texts or emails warning people of severe weather. People who register with Selwyn Gets Ready now have the option to subscribe to the new email service which will send an alert on days with high fire risk over summer and autumn. To join the website, visit www.selwyn.getsready.net and enter your details. To subscribe to the emails tick the ‘Fire Risk Alert’ option under the household needs section when registering.

If you’re already registered with Selwyn Gets Ready you can subscribe to the fire risk alert service by logging into the website selwyn.getsready.net, going to ‘my profile’ and editing the ‘Needs, Resources, Skills and Community’ section to tick Fire Risk Alerts and saving this change. A red warning banner will also be displayed on the Council website on high fire risk days over summer.

Rubbish Collection Days and Weeks changing

4pm

8am 9am 2pm

From next week, changes to rubbish, organic and recycling collection days will affect approximately 1,800 Selwyn households in several areas of the district. These changes are needed to accommodate the significant growth experienced in some areas of Selwyn. If your property is affected by a change, you should have received a letter from the Council about this. Please note if you are renting, the letter will have been addressed to your landlord so we recommend you check the Council website, www.selwyn.govt.nz. You can check your collection day by entering your property address using our ‘Collection Day Search Tool.’ For many households your collection day may stay the same, with red and green bins still collected each week, but the week your yellow recycling bin is collected each fortnight may change. If your recycling collection day is week 1 that means your yellow bin will be collected the week starting 7 December, and every fortnight after that. If your recycling collection is week 2, your yellow bin will be collected the week of 14 December, and every fortnight after that. Normal collections will continue up until 4 December. The changes may mean that your next recycling collection is a week earlier than normal – in order to start the new collection cycle. The early collection will help prevent bins overflowing. An overview of the affected areas: · Tai Tapu changes to a Monday collection, with recycling changing to week 2 · A number of rural roads between Dunsandel and Doyleston are changing from Monday Week 2 to Monday Week 1 recycling collection, as is Doyleston itself · A number of rural roads in between Lincoln and Prebbleton change from Tuesday Week 2 to Tuesday Week 1 recycling collection · An area north west of State Highway 1 between Rolleston and West Melton changes to Thursday collections, with recycling still collected in Week 2 · In Rolleston about 300 properties north east of Tennyson Street will change to Wednesday collection, with recycling moving to Week 1 on Wednesdays.

We would like to request that where possible households continue to avoid watering lawns between 6am-9am and 4pm-9pm daily. The recommended times to water your lawn are in the evenings between 9pm and 6am. If you are considering watering in the daytime (9am4pm) we recommend checking conditions first and choosing a cooler, overcast day to reduce evaporation. If demand for water continues to increase the Council may introduce formal water restrictions. We would like to avoid doing this if possible by requesting your assistance with this. If demand for water is particularly high, water pressure will be reduced to sustain the supply. Environment Canterbury has now restricted water consumption for a number water supplies due to low ground water levels.

When to water your lawn Don’t irrigate Between 6-9am or 4-9pm daily A restricted fire season is now in place across the rural plains area of Selwyn district.Under the restrictions the only types of fires permitted in rural areas are gas barbeques, fires in drums and crop residue fires. There are a number of conditions which must be met before fires can be lit – see www.selwyn.govt.nz for details. Selwyn households are also being invited to sign up to the Selwyn Gets Ready website to be alerted of high fire risk days over summer. Fire risk changes from day to day. Generally days with high temperatures and nor west winds elevate the fire risk, especially when there has been low rainfall. Local volunteer firefighters are anticipating a busy summer as El Nino conditions are forecast to affect Canterbury.

Check weather conditions before watering We recommend you check weather conditions before watering at this time. 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

The Selwyn Gets Ready website is a database which contains contact information for local residents. This information is used by local community response teams to identify who needs assistance in an emergency and who has skills or resources (like first aid skills) that could help in a disaster. In an emergency a network of community response teams operate in Selwyn and are responsible for checking on people’s welfare, identifying what needs to be done in their area and requesting assistance if needed. The Selwyn Gets Ready system can also be used to send texts or emails warning people of severe weather. People who register with Selwyn Gets Ready now have the option to subscribe to the new email service which will send an alert on days with high fire risk over summer and autumn. To join the website, visit www.selwyn.getsready.net and enter your details. To subscribe to the emails tick the ‘Fire Risk Alert’ option under the household needs section when registering.

A red warning banner will also be displayed on the Council website on high fire risk days over summer.

Rubbish Collection Days and Weeks changing

4pm

8am 9am 2pm

From next week, changes to rubbish, organic and recycling collection days will affect approximately 1,800 Selwyn households in several areas of the district. These changes are needed to accommodate the significant growth experienced in some areas of Selwyn. If your property is affected by a change, you should have received a letter from the Council about this. Please note if you are renting, the letter will have been addressed to your landlord so we recommend you check the Council website, www.selwyn.govt.nz. You can check your collection day by entering your property address using our ‘Collection Day Search Tool.’ For many households your collection day may stay the same, with red and green bins still collected each week, but the week your yellow recycling bin is collected each fortnight may change. If your recycling collection day is week 1 that means your yellow bin will be collected the week starting 7 December, and every fortnight after that. If your recycling collection is week 2, your yellow bin will be collected the week of 14 December, and every fortnight after that. Normal collections will continue up until 4 December. The changes may mean that your next recycling collection is a week earlier than normal – in order to start the new collection cycle. The early collection will help prevent bins overflowing. An overview of the affected areas: · Tai Tapu changes to a Monday collection, with recycling changing to week 2 · A number of rural roads between Dunsandel and Doyleston are changing from Monday Week 2 to Monday Week 1 recycling collection, as is Doyleston itself · A number of rural roads in between Lincoln and Prebbleton change from Tuesday Week 2 to Tuesday Week 1 recycling collection · An area north west of State Highway 1 between Rolleston and West Melton changes to Thursday collections, with recycling still collected in Week 2 · In Rolleston about 300 properties north east of Tennyson Street will change to Wednesday collection, with recycling moving to Week 1 on Wednesdays.

UP AND OVER: Springston teenager Steffi Whittaker’s dream run this season has continued, winning the South Island FEI World Jumping Challenge after the final round at the South Canterbury North Otago Area’s show at Waimate on Saturday. The 15-year-old was consistent throughout the competition, producing six clear rounds across the three South Island legs, the only blip a single pesky time fault in the first round. Although she didn’t win a single round, her two seconds and a third were enough to give her the overall win on points ahead of Ashburton’s Jamiee Bird on Wenrose Vertigo. PHOTO: ANNIE STUDHOLME TRIATHLON Two Selwyn siblings made their mark in the Primary School Triathlon Championships on Thursday. Rolleston School pupil Zoe McMeeken came first in the 10-yearold girls’ event and her brother William McMeekan came second in the nine-year-old boys’ event. CRICKET RESULTS South Malvern 183 (M Pauling 51, M Stott 3-35) beat Leeston-

Southbridge 175 (T Field 75, M McCaughan 4-28) by eight runs at Glentunnel. Greendale 190-6 (A Laffey 2-8) lost to Sefton 192-4 (L Taylor 79, B Fleming 40) by six wickets at Greendale. Oxford 118 (L Waghorn 32, S Clark 3-33, J Chapman 3-8) lost to Lincoln 119-3 (A Patterson 54*) by seven wickets at Oxford. Weedons 167 (K Meyerhoff 40, D power 4-20, D Boyle 3-27) lost to Southbrook 170-5 (M Brine 52, J Brown 46, T Hancox 41*) by five wickets at Weedons.

No, romance wasn’t in the air — although I had just successfully proposed to my lovely lady atop the Eiffel Tower. It was a Napoleonic historian’s search for the tomb of one of Napoleon Bonaparte’s best marshals. His name was Jean Lannes and he was buried in the Montmartre Cemetery. Actually, his body was some way away in the Pantheon, but his heart lay in the leafy resting place positioned to the north of the inner city. Lannes was an amazing character and one of only 24 marshals Napoleon Bonaparte personally raised to that exalted rank. He was a courageous fighter, an excellent tactician and one of Napoleon’s few true friends. But that didn’t seem to stop the emperor continually placing Lannes in the most dangerous situations in charge of the vanguard of his Grande Armee. Lannes’ military service began in 1792, early in the French Revolutionary Wars, and he continually proved himself in battle, being wounded many times during a career that included campaigns in Egypt, Spain and Austria. In 1809, Lannes was again marching with Napoleon, this time along the Danube in Austria, and was badly wounded during the battle of AspernEssling. A cannonball crushed his legs and, despite amputation, infection set in. When he died of fever a week later, Bonaparte was left in tears. And so it was this man’s giant heart I was determined to find amid the 20,000 or so graves and memorials in Montmartre Cemetery. It was not an easy task as the cemetery lies across 11ha and I should have made the most of the plastic-coated printed maps

at the entrance that show the position of each person. Unfortunately, I instead relied upon a pretty good memory and noting down the number of the graves I wanted to see. While it lengthened the hunt the challenge was fun as I came across several unexpected tombs — such as the great composers Hector Berlioz and Leo Delibes, author extraordinaire Alexandre Dumas, Adolphe Sax, inventor of the saxophone, and famed painter and sculptor Edgar Degas. There were many truly famous folk interred within its walls — not one modern celebrity thank goodness — and half of the fun of exploring was coming across one by chance. And, if a name doesn’t grab you, then sometimes the tomb or

monument will. Some are grand, others garish and more than a few completely over the top. Take for example the one for the great dancer Vaslav Najinsky. His has a man-sized figure of Stravinsky’s puppet Petrushka sitting down on it. A more moving one belongs to a young Polish soldier Miecislas Kamien´ski who died fighting for Italian independence in French Army’s 1859 war against Austria. Jean Lannes, Duke of Montebello, I silently intoned as my search began again. Continuing on I passed two known-to-me Napoleonic-era names — General Antoine-Henri Jomini (military author) and historian Philippe de Segur. Ah ha, he must be around here — the Avenue de Montebello. It NEW was a beautiful little tree-lined

street and wandering along there were just so many tombs but, surprisingly, no luck. And so another sweep began as I worked my way back to where the maps were hung and took one as nonchalantly as one is able when wrestling with a large plastic object. Checking it showed I had come so close to my target. I must have passed right by. With resolution set at full I walked back to Avenue de Montebello, past Miecislas Kamien´ski and straight to Lannes’ tomb. The writing on the top of the entryway had become unclear over the years, but I really should have seen it. “Marechal Lannes, Duc de Montebello.” Stepping into its cool, dark interior I gave a slight nod to a LOCATION ADVERT.pdf 1/05/2014 small statue of the 1Virgin Mary that stood on a small table next

to a door with an iron grill. Beyond that were steps leading down to the private, family tomb. “Hello Jean,” I said through the grill, “I want you to know that 200 years on you and your deeds are not forgotten.” With that I left a small stone on the table before I walked back out into the heat of the day, satisfied that I had done what I set out to do — salute a brave and honourable man. ■ Montmartre Cemetery is open every day from 8.30am and it closes at various times from 5.30pm on depending upon the season. ■ Richard Moore is the owner and editor of The Napoleonic Guide, a 3000-page online encyclopaedia of the Napoleonic 11:51:35 a.m. Wars.

prone to irritation and infection. Eczema is hot, red and itchy and easily gets infected. While you can have a genetic predisposition to getting eczema, it is not contagious and cannot be passed on to other members of the family or anyone else. There tends to be different types of eczema at different ages, Dr Purvis explains. In little babies, we see a lot of trouble on the face, scalp and outside the knees and elbows; in older children, it occurs more in the folds of the elbows and knees; in adults, it often tends to be on the hands and resulting from irritation from soap and chemicals or contact allergy, for example, to fragrances or nickel; and in older people, it can be due to poor circulation on the lower legs.” The highest incidence of eczema occurs in pre-school children; a challenging time for families to manage treating the condition. Maori and Pacific Island children are more likely to have severe eczema. “At present we don’t know why,” Dr Purvis says, “but access to healthcare may be a factor.” The good news is that there are some very good fully funded treatments available through the public health system.

Lace is a traditionally upmarket fabric. From historical Elizabethan intricate garments to the vintage-inspired wedding dresses of today, the fabric that author Pat Earnshaw, in his Dictionary of Lace, described as “holes surrounded with thread” is hardly ever out of fashion and always in style. It suggests romance and drama. One tends to think of lace as fabric suitable for eveningwear, and it is true you will get plenty of wear, year after year, out of a classic black or red lace shift. But this season lace detailing and crocheting are giving daywear a lacy edge, with lace detailing

Working up a thirst for watermelon BY TOD PALENSKI

I recently asked some gardeners which plants they had the most difficulty growing and which they would like some advice on planting. From the answers, two plants overwhelmingly stood out – coriander and watermelon. In my opinion coriander is a must-have herb for any garden. It can be added to so many dishes – curries, salads and stir-fries – and the dried version just can’t compare. But I do appreciate it can be a little tricky to grow as it’s quite particular about the conditions it likes. I wouldn’t class watermelon as a must-have but it’s a great-tohave plant and it’s hard to beat a piece of the freshly-cut fruit straight from your own garden. But I’d also say it’s even more particular about the conditions it likes than coriander. So this month I’m going to go over getting the best out of your watermelon plants (which need to be planted now) and have included a panel of my top tips on cultivating coriander, which can be planted all year round. While I encourage everyone to have a crack at growing any plant they choose, watermelons require around three months of sun and heat averaging above 20 deg C. Unfortunately, not all areas of New Zealand are able to provide these conditions so be realistic about whether your garden can provide the heat required for successful watermelon fruit.

Tod’s top tips for cultivating coriander

THIRST-QUENCHING: Watermelon needs space to grow and free-draining soil.

Watermelons grow across the ground like pumpkins so they need a bit of space but it’s fine if they grow (otherwise known as trail) back across each other. What’s important is finding a spot in your garden that has very free-draining soil. If your soil isn’t you will need to mound it up to help create this effect. Regardless of your type of soil, you’ll need to dig in lots of compost and manure to deliver the nutrients the plants require to kick off. The flowers will require pollination to develop fruit, so it’s great if you’re able grow your watermelon near other plants, like lavender and salvia, which attract lots of bees. Before you plant cover the area in mulch like pea straw.

This will help provide more nitrogen to the soil but also keep the fruit off the ground which will help prevent them rotting. When you’ve found the perfect location for your plants simply pop each seedling in around 2030cm apart. The next important step to successful watermelon is keeping them well-fed. Feed them weekly with a nitrogen-based fertiliser until the flowers start to form and then use a high potassium fertiliser to encourage fruit. I often use tomato or strawberry fertilisers for this job as they focus on fruit and not leaf production. For those who aren’t aware, nitrogen will encourage lots of leaf growth and potassium will

bring on more fruit. And the last vital step in producing great watermelons is in the name itself – water. This fresh, juicy fruit requires plenty of regular water. The trick is not overwatering which can rot the fruit and create perfect conditions for powdery mildew – especially if it’s humid where you are. So, keep the soil moist but not boggy or too damp. If you manage to pull off all the above, you should reap the results about three months after you plant. You can tell your fruit is ready to harvest when the stem where it joins the fruit is starting to soften and the leaves closest to the fruit die off. You’ll probably also be able to smell a true watermelon smell.

•Plant coriander when weather is steady (i.e. not during change of season) to prevent it ‘bolting’ from the change in temperature •Plant in full sun, or partial sun in summer •Avoid growing in small pot indoors instead plant in deep pot outside or in a free-draining part of garden •Ensure soil isn’t hard or too compact by digging over. Dig in potting mix if required •Mound the soil up and plant seedling on top to ensure soil is aerated and free-draining •Water in morning to allow water to dry off during day and prevent disease •Coriander doesn’t like damp or humid conditions. It likes a dry atmosphere but don’t let the soil dry out or it may cause the plant to bolt •Eat it quickly to ensure it doesn’t go to seed

gardening without guesswork Question:

I’m noticing a lot of spittle bugs on my perennials and while I can remove them manually it takes a lot of time and effort. Is there an organic solution you can suggest for getting rid of these?

Answer:

Thanks for your question Ruth. Just a quick explanation for those who don’t know, Spittlebugs produce a frothy “spittle” on stems of your plants and feed on the inside of the foam. They suck plant juices like aphids, removing a lot of water and carbohydrates as they go. This is why they create the spittle. The spittlebug seen on plants right now is the juvenile stage of a green bug that jumps around on plants from about January onwards. Although unsightly on plants they seem to do little serious damage. They are not easy to get rid of at this stage, but what I do is gently wash off the spittle with the hose and then use a spray to control them. The Safers range of organic friendly sprays should be effective if used once the spittle is washed off. There are some great organic sprays out there now, so heads to your local garden centre and have a chat to their team. Otherwise the life cycle of the insect will take its course and they will disappear from the plants in a few weeks.

Thanks to ruth for her question, we hope you enjoy spending your voucher!

Why do they create spittle?

They are pretty clever wee bugs. The spittle helps to protect the bug from predators, and also to prevent the bug from dehydrating. They turn the liquid secretion into bubbles by moving or pumping their body. Pretty clever really!

Meet the neighbours Diana Noonan turns the spotlight on grevillea – a flower likely to leave an impression. One of my earliest garden memories is of a pink-flowering grevillea that grew in the shrubbery at the front of my family’s section. I must have been about four when I first noticed it, no doubt attracted to it by its ‘dragon horn’ flowers. Or perhaps the bush stood out because it was one of the only spots of garden colour during our long Otago winters. Now, wherever I go, I always notice grevilleas, something that is not difficult to do considering they grow the length and breadth of the country and that, thanks to the many species available, one or other of these ‘spider flowers’ is usually in bloom. Most of the more than 350 grevillea now available (though not all in New Zealand) hail from Australia with a few being native to Indonesia, New Guinea and New Caledonia. They come in a great range of sizes and habits, from prostrate ground covers and mid-sized shrubs to taller plants suitable for light hedging. Rather than having petals, flowers consist of a coloured calyx that splits into four narrow, rolled-back lobes. These lobes can be either straight or, in the case of my childhood ‘dragon horns’, curved. Flowers hold over a long period and are full of nectar, which makes winter-

CREEPY-CRAWLY: The shape of some grevillea flowers has earned the nickname spider flower.

blooming varieties popular as a natural bird feed. Especially valued for this purpose is Grevillea victoriae, which sports drooping heads of rusty red flowers in winter. It grows as a bush up to 1.5m high and is totally hardy, which makes it ideal for chilly areas including Central Otago and Southland. Almost on a par where winterflowering and hardiness is concerned is G. ‘Bronze Rambler’. This prostrate grevillea (it grows up to 50cm high) produces masses of glossy, dark-red bottlebrush flowers all year, but particularly in spring, and is great for cascading over walls and banks. Given their Aussie origins, it’s not surprising that fuss-free grevillea enjoy a sunny situation. Semi-shade will do at a pinch, but flowering will suffer as a consequence. They also prefer shelter and well-drained soils (raise them up on a mound if good drainage can’t be naturally provided in your garden), and although they are drought-tolerant for periods, this doesn’t mean they can be totally neglected where moisture is concerned. While grevillea are becoming established it pays not to let them dry out completely, and they especially enjoy a good drink in the first week or two after planting.

and leave an impression One thing grevillea won’t thank you for is phosphorus – or a great deal of nutrient. Phosphorus is found naturally in compost, blood and bone, and bone meal (and, of course, super-phosphate). When feeding grevillea, which should be done once in spring and then again at the end of summer, look for a fertiliser that is specially designed for phosphorus-sensitive plants. Seaweed, on the other hand, is ideal as a booster so don’t stint on that. Medium to fast growers, a little attention to pruning grevilleas will help keep plants healthy and bushy. The best time to do this is just after flowering has finished, so with plants that seldom stop producing flowers, you may have to say goodbye to a few blooms to get the job done. Cutting back by about a third at this time is recommended. If you are just about to plant a grevillea, nipping off the growing tips will help encourage a thicker, bushier plant.

Wherever you are, there’s a grevillea for you Hot, dry summers; very chilly winters Grevillea victoriae – winter flowering, natural bird-feeder. G. ‘Bronze Rambler’ – prostrate. Hot, dry summers; mild winters G. lavandulacea ‘Red Cloud’ – prostrate, winter through to spring flowering, natural birdfeeder.

Container growing

Grevillea are suitable for container growing, so if you want to enjoy a plant that is too tender to grow naturally outside in your neck of the woods, you’re in luck. Use a low phosphorus, well-draining plant mix and keep the grevillea well pruned. Take inside or move into a sunny, sheltered spot as temperatures drop.

Grow your own

If you become a grevillea fan, you may like to try growing your own plants. To do this, take 10cm cuttings during summer or early autumn. Strip off the lower third of the leaves, and then dip the bare ends of the cuttings into rooting hormone. Pop the cuttings into a pot filled with a mix of pumice or coarse river sand. Note: If a plant has a ‘PVR’ note attached to its label, it is copyright protected and you may not propagate it (grow it from a cutting) until the copyright period has expired. G. x gaudichaudii – vigorous, prostrate, spring to autumn flowering, red. G. ‘Poorinda Royal Mantle’ – bottlebrush flowers from spring through autumn. Warm summers, cool winters G. ‘Lady O Std’ – a new standard with bright red flowers, ‘Lady O’ is available in bush form. G. ‘Cream and Green’ – fast growing, spider blooms, protect from very heavy frosts. G. lanigera ‘Mt Tambouritha’ – prostrate, cascades over banks, pink and cream flowers over a long period.

The heat is on! It looks like we’re in for a long hot summer around Canterbury! Keeping on top of the gardening tasks now is going to prove to be invaluable come the peak of the summer season. With water restrictions last year, we should be planning that this will happen again. To keep your garden in the best shape, get a few tasks done now. Water: Keep the watering up. A good time to do this is in the morning before the main heat of the day. This will help to prevent evaporation, allowing more water to reach the roots of the plants. A decent watering every second day is more beneficial than a light watering every day. Also, don’t forget to water the lawns! Weed: Unfortunately these pesky, unsightly things are pretty resilient and the seeds get blown around by our winds as well as the birds. Pull them out as they pop up. They compete with your plants for space, nutrients and water, so the sooner you get them out, the less time they have to soak up the goodies in the soil. Mulch: Bark mulches and nuggets are an excellent addition to the garden. They help to keep your area looking neat and tidy, as well as help to suppress weeds and retain moisture in the soil. This will be vital when water restrictions are on and your plants are starting to feel the heat – literally. If you aren’t a fan of the barks, we also have a variety of stones and chips that will help with this too.

Most Fonterra farm waterways now stock excluded Fonterra farmers are demonstrating their commitment to responsible dairying with 98 per cent of waterways now stock excluded.

T

his means defined waterways totalling twice the length of New Zealand’s coastline are now fenced to protect against stock entering the water. Many farmers have gone above and beyond their minimum requirements fencing an additional 10,000 kilometres of smaller waterways. Fonterra director social responsibility Carolyn Mortland says Fonterra farmers are committed to farming sustainably, and are doing some great work. “There’s a lot involved in managing a farm’s impact on the environment – fencing waterways, managing raceways, tracks, paddocks and effluent, and reducing run-off through riparian planting. “New Zealand’s rugged landscape is challenging but our farmers are committed

to achieving the best possible outcomes and are continually looking at ways to achieve this.” Good progress is also being seen in nutrient management. Seventy-six per cent of Fonterra farmers have recorded detailed on-farm information to enable nitrogen management reports to be produced – up 17 per cent on the last year – and helping to improve efficient use of nutrients. Mrs Mortland says many farmers are helping to strengthen the co-operative’s international reputation for high quality dairy nutrition and responsible dairy farming, highlighting the following examples. Southland Jimmy Gerritsen is using solar power to improve sustainability and profitability.

He will have paid it off in three to four years and then he will be saving $20,000 every year. He has also started recycling water for washing the shed out, resulting in a 30 per cent saving of daily water use and reducing effluent levels. Canterbury Nigel Gardiner has been fencing off wetlands, bridging pivot crossings, improving irrigation, looking at water efficiencies in the shed and as part of monitoring a stream, he has discovered some kakahi – endangered native mussels.

Mr Gardiner is keeping the big picture in mind despite it being a tough time for dairy farmers. He said, ultimately, the work he is doing would add value to the farm. Waikato David Hill is working with Whaingaroa Harbour Care to put thousands of native trees into his Raglan farm. He says while this year has been tough, he will still get 1000 plants in the ground. Mr Hill says it is a huge balancing act between operating a commercially viable and environmentally sustainable business, but he is committed to making a difference.

Still time to plant summer feed buffer With a dry summer predicted, many farmers will be wondering if they will have enough feed to see them through.

D

airyNZ’s senior developer feed and farm systems Kim Mashlan says that even though sowing time is nearly over, there is still time to plant crops that will provide a valuable summer feed buffer in some areas, and which can be planted until early December. “Crops like sweet sudan grass, sorghumsudan grass hybrids and greenfeed maize maintain relatively high levels of production during hot and dry conditions and can reduce the risk of having inadequate forage during the summer,” Mr Mashlan says. Sudan grass and sorghum-sudan grass hybrids Sudan grass and sorghum-sudan grass hybrids are primarily used for grazing and cutting because of their high regrowth potential. They regrow faster than forage sorghum and recover quickly after grazing or cutting. Warm soil temperatures, 17°C and rising, are required for germination. Sorghums are known for being drought tolerant. They absorb water more efficiently because they have twice as many secondary roots per unit of primary root as maize and have half as much leaf area and a waxier leaf surface – traits that help withstand drought and provide a source of feed during summer pasture shortages. Sudan grass and sorghum-sudan grass can be grazed 35 to 45 days after planting, when the crop reaches a minimum height of 0.8m (0.8 to 1.2m recommended), and will normally be ready for a second cutting or grazing within 28 to 35 days (at 0.8m). Sudan grass and sorghum-sudan grass hybrids that are 0.8 to 1.0m in height have, on average, a dry matter content of 15 per cent, an average energy content of 9.0 to 10.0 MJME/kgDM and yield 3.5-4.5tDM/ ha per cut (two to three cuts/grazings, depending on moisture levels). Intake

should be restricted to 30 to 40 per cent of diet. The quality and feed value drop drastically once the grass begins to mature (greater than 1.4m in height). To maximise quality, feed when the crop is between 0.8 to 1.0m in height. Greenfeed maize Greenfeed maize can yield large quantities of green fodder per hectare relative to most other alternative summer fodder crops and summer pasture. It has an energy content of around 10 to 10.5 MJME/kgDM and crude protein of 8 to 12 percent. It can be cut and carried to the herd or break fed. The summer greenfeed option is not suitable for silage. Intake should be restricted to 25 to 50 per cent of diet. It can be planted once soil temperature is 10°C and rising, and greenfed from 42 to 56 days of planting. Yields of 10 to 18T DM/ha are possible but will be less in dry years. Health warning Nitrate poisoning is a potential issue with any crop that grows rapidly, has been drought stressed, or has been frosted. Crops should be sampled and analysed before grazing/cutting if nitrate buildup is suspected. Prussic acid poisoning is a concern if feeding sudan grass and sorghum-sudan grass hybrids to dairy cows. As the danger is highest in early growth stages and after frosting, farmers should not graze or green cut until the crop is greater than 0.8m high and spray out paddocks before autumn frosts or regrassing. Also, as sudan grass is low in sulphur, farmers should check pasture sulphur levels – if low (less than 0.25 per cent) sulphur supplementation is recommended. Farmers should contact their local veterinarian if they have concerns about nitrate or prussic acid poisoning.

Clever design for Mercedes-Benz SUV

There’s not a lot of product or competition in New Zealand’s upmarket mid-size hatchback/ mini-SUV market. Yes, there are a smattering of mainstream models, but if you have a few extra dollars to spend and want something just a little exotic you don’t have a lot of choice, and most of what is available comes out of Germany. Yet, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class could still be deemed to be affordable. The four-model range here starts at $53,200 and ends at $71,900 for the 4Matic B 250 which this evaluation focuses on. As its nomenclature suggests, the B 250 is a four-wheel-drive version; however, the rest of the range is just front-wheel-drive only, while amongst those there are two 1.6-litre petrol powered models and a 2.2-litre diesel. The B 250 has a 2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, and it is a unit which is used widely through Mercedes-Benz product. I’ve become very familiar with this engine and I’ve often remarked that it is a good combination of available power and the economy we would expect from today’s modern engine. Just like in other applications, the 1991cc unit is rated with 155kW with 350Nm of torque

SPECIFICATIONS

available at between 1250rpm and 4000rpm. If you take into account that peak power arrives at just 5500rpm, there is a solid flow of energy which works almost silently as the engine hauls up and down the rev band. That type of refinement is why many buyers choose upmarket models, the engineering which goes into a high class product is sophisticated, and it shows with its effortless manner and smooth operation. Drive is directed through a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox. Effectively it works like a traditional automatic, and with just two pedals you drive it as such. There are also steering wheel-mounted paddles which can be used to initiate changes. The beauty of DCT transmission are the quick, sharp gearshifts, especially under load, the flick of the tachometer is often the only way the driver can sense ratio change. And the gearing is perfectly balanced between what is expected for acceleration and fuel economy. Some of the important fig-

Inside, the B 250 gets the usual box of tricks which makes a Mercedes-Benz such a desirable purchase, especially for safety where a full suite of kit is included. And it also has the benefit of clever design. There’s no doubting its hatchback/SUV looks, but that lends itself to a spacious, comfortable interior environment and a 488-litre luggage carrying capacity (1547-litres with the rear seats folded). Mercedes-Benz has just given the B-Class a bit of a facelift, it is a timely refresh for the series given that BMW’s Active Tourer has just landed and its concept is very similar. Nevertheless, for the Mercedes-Benz faithful who need practicality and functionality into their purchase, the B-Class fills that void. You also get a whole lot of prestige within the package.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District

Industrial expansion at ROLLESTON Rolleston’s Izone industrial park has expanded rapidly over the last three years with the Port of Tauranga locating a base there.

I

ts success may be a factor in the Lyttelton Port of Christchurch’s decision to build a new inland port nearby, in conjunction with the Carter Group who are constructing an industrial and logistics hub alongside. The MidlandPort, which is currently under construction and expected to be operational by March 2016, is strategically positioned on Jones Road close to the main south railway line, giving a direct rail link for container freight headed for the port of Lyttelton. Izone itself has a range of commercial sites catering for businesses of all sizes, and the recent workspace complex of smaller warehouse and showroom units has been very popular according to commercial and industrial specialist Greg Horgan. “This development provided for small businesses and tradesperson who needed a base, with small warehouse units from 100 to 350 square metres and some small, high quality showroom units of around 100 square metres,” says Greg Horgan. In fact, occupancy of existing buildings at Izone is currently at capacity with only

two buildings available, one of which is under negotiation. This suggests that a new development presently on the drawing board will provide for a market need. Greg Horgan advises that this new complex is expected to proceed early next year. It will comprise warehouses with a small office component from 250 to 1,500 square metres that will be for sale or lease. The growth of Izone and confidence by the Port of Tauranga, Lyttelton Port of Christchurch and Carter Group to invest in the area reflects the confidence of national, local and international tenants. Businesses are looking for warehousing and manufacturing facilities in Rolleston, while The Warehouse has already signed up as a customer for the MidlandPort. Another factor in the growth of Rolleston’s industrial base has been the extension of the Southern Motorway and its planned further extension through to Rolleston, which is due for completion in 2017. The rail link with Lyttelton will improve efficiency in travel and handling times, reducing costs for businesses that use the two inland ports.

Workspace at Izone

Workspace has smaller warehouses and showrooms.

According to Greg Horgan, developers also favour Rolleston due to it being more economical to build there as the ground has good bearing capabilities. This results in considerably lower foundation costs for large buildings that is the case in most parts of the city, and the council does not charge development levies, which can add a sizeable amount before construction even begins. The ports and supporting businesses are already creating employment in the Selwyn district, so it is not surprising then that the Selwyn District Council predicts Rolleston’s population will rise to over 18,000 by 2025.

Work has begun in the MidlandPort.

Illuminate all areas Lead guests to the front door with adequate lighting to illuminate stairs or other potential hazards. The simplest and cheapest lighting option is solar-powered landscape lights which require no wiring, and therefore use no electricity.

S

imply place them in a sunny spot, and when dusk arrives, they automatically light up. A string of low-voltage LED lighting is the perfect solution for brightening a shady bend along a walkway. It’s a low-cost, easy DIY solution for illuminating a path. Use motion-sensing lights to increase security at night. Install them in key spots like the garage and side doors where it’s useful to have light for short periods. Add drama to the front of your property

by spotlighting a tree or other focal point in your garden like a flowerbed or water feature. Uplighting provided by spotlights accentuates the texture of tree trunks and creates a beautiful glow on foliage. Inexpensive rope lighting creates a great uplighting effect when placed on the back of landscape bed edging. Roll out the tube lighting and pin it in place with landscape staples for a hidden glow. Make sure you position spotlights away from windows or your neighbours.

Wall-mount downlights cast a warm, gentle light on outdoor living spaces. Use them to enhance texture on stone walls. Plan ahead when incorporating a light into a wall, leaving access to wiring for maintenance or repairs. Enjoy your deck after dark with wellplanned landscape lighting. Set the scene with strings of fairy lights draped over a pergola or bundled into a ball beneath glass domes to make a luminous table feature.

Hang tea lights in glass jars from tree branches to create a magical atmosphere while entertaining outdoors in the evening. There’s nothing quite like taking a dip in the pool after the sun goes down. Add spotlights in and around your pool for safety and enjoy making the most of swimming not just during the day. Make your pond come alive at night with submerged lighting to illuminate fish and plants after dark.

“Why you might just need a property manager…. Many landlords have asked themselves at one time or another if they’d be better self-managing their investment property. It’s a question that’s especially relevant if a landlord’s had a negative experience with a property manager who failed to deliver the service they initially promised. Many landlords will attempt to manage their investment properties, as property management can appear on the surface to be straightforward and simple. But being a landlord is different to being an owner-occupier and care needs to be taken. The most important decision to make is whether you will self-manage the property or engage the services of a property manager. While it’s tempting to save a small percentage of the rent and self-manage, and the ‘DIY’ approach is suitable for some landlords with the time, the benefits of using a property manager can really end up saving you money and time in the long term. Property management isn’t just about collecting rent. It’s about ensuring your property is always rented, ensuring you have the best possible tenants, and ensuring you’re getting the best possible rent. It’s about keeping the property well maintained, tracking expenses and income, and dealing with the legalities of leases and the rights of tenants. It’s about being a mediator and an enforcement officer, sympathising with different situations but not letting people walk all over you. You need to track all conversations, text messages, emails and letters so as to not let anything slip through if it ever came down to a tribunal case. “
