PASSER-BY SAVES MOTORIST IN WATER TOM DOUDNEY

A motorist has told how he saved a woman’s life as she lay trapped upside down in a river after crashing near Tai Tapu on Sunday. Anthony Goomes held the woman’s head out of the Halswell River while waiting for help to arrive. Mr Goomes said it was surreal experience. “It’s pretty amazing, I am still in shock,” he said yesterday. Mr Goomes and his partner had been having lunch at Tai Tapu Hotel when they chanced across the crash in the Halswell River near the intersection of Osterholts Rd at about 1.30pm. The woman had been driving a Nissan hatchback towing a tandem trailer loaded with building materi-

als when it left the road and went down a grass bank. The Nissan ended up in the river where it flipped and the trailer landed on top of it, trapping her inside. After cutting the woman’s seat belt, Mr Goomes was unable to free the woman so he stayed with her, holding her head above the water and talking with her for about 15min until emergency services arrived. A farmer used a tractor to lift the vehicle out of the water so that firefighters could cut the driver free. The driver was taken to Christchurch Hospital. The police spokeswoman said the incident was a timely reminder for everyone to make sure they were experienced at towing a trailer

and ensuring that the load did not exceed the towing capacity of their vehicle. In another crash on Sunday afternoon, six people were taken to Christchurch Hospital after their campervan was involved in a collision with a car towing an empty horse float. The campervan was turning from Barkers Rd on to Main South Rd and had 12 people onboard at the time. The driver and sole occupant of the car was uninjured. Inspector Derek Erasmus said police wished to thank the public for their patience while the southbound lane of Main South Rd was closed and diversions were in place for about 90min.

Algae prompts river warning TOM DOUDNEY

Lowland streams feeding into Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere are in poor health due to low flows. A public health warning has been issued after potentially toxic blue-green algae (benthic cyanobacteria) were found in Selwyn River at the Whitecliffs Domain. People and animals, particularly dogs, have been advised to avoid the area until the health warning has been lifted. Exposure may cause skin rashes, nausea, stomach cramps, tingling and numbness around the mouth and fingertips. Environment Canterbury surface water science manager Tim Davie said the lack of flow and winter flooding in the last 12 months meant large amounts of macrophytes (aquatic plants) and algae were growing in streams. “The Selwyn [River] at Coes Ford is already below its longterm mean annual flow. We would not normally expect these rivers to reach mean annual low flows until the late summer (March).” Lincoln resident Billy Barnes said he had lived by the Liffey Stream for nine years and had never seen the flows so low.

RUNNING LOW: Selwyn River at Whitecliffs, where a public health warning has been issued for toxic algae.

He questioned whether irrigation drawing water from inland aquifers could be responsible for reducing the flow downstream. “Before authorities rush to claim the phenomena are weather related, they are not because we had almost identical weather patterns last year and no such outcomes,” he said. However, Mr Davie said the flows in spring-fed streams were responding to rainfall patterns

across the plains over the previous two years. “This has been a very dry period and groundwater levels are at record low levels; hence the spring-fed streams are at very low levels,” he said. “Rainfall in October in the central plains area was 9mm, the lowest October total on record and there has been less than 70 per cent of the average rainfall for this year. In some parts of North

Canterbury the rainfall totals are below 50 per cent of average.” Mr Davie said the main problem had been the very low winter rainfall which was when the groundwater which fed streams received its main recharge. “This year has a rainfall pattern very similar to 2007 and 1998, both times with very low flows in spring-fed streams like the Liffey.” Mr Davie said irrigation on the Canterbury Plains did play some part in lower flows. In recognition of this, the recent Selwyn-Waihora Land and Water Management Plan treated both ground and surface water as one resource and had prohibited any further water abstraction consents. “The plan has also placed limits on the amount of nutrient able to be leached from farms across the plains and made farming at good management practices mandatory,” he said. “In the long-term this will reduce the amount of nutrients in streams like the Liffey and improve the stream health in years such as this when the flows are so low due to the long-term drought.”

Dairy farm sanctuaries for flora, fauna possible A new study of remnant forest in Bankside raises the possibility of dairy farms becoming sanctuaries for native flora and fauna. The research suggests dairy and conservation sites can co-exist, and its findings are contributing to an ongoing project restoring natural biodiversity into a dairy farming environment. The study Persistence of biodiversity in a dryland remnant within an intensified dairy farm landscape, looks at Bankside Scientific Reserve, 2.6ha of remnant forest surrounded by dairy paddocks.

Professor Dickinson said the study showed there were “means and ways” to restore natural biodiversity into a dairy farming environment. The Ngai Tāhu Farming project, covering 150ha on 17 reserves, was an example of this as it had a similar amount of native species being planted on paddock borders and under irrigators. These created conditions for more than 65 species of plants to regenerate, and also provided corridors for insects and birds between the reserves.

Housing land up for approval TOM DOUDNEY

Fast-tracking the release of more land for housing around Rolleston could be ratified tomorrow. The area’s Housing Accord, an agreement between the Government and district council, will be up for approval at tomorrow’s district council meeting. District councillors will also vote on whether to recommend to the Government that three areas of land be designated as special housing areas. The land, all to the south of Rolleston, has a combined area of 116ha and would yield between 1300 and 1500 new homes. Selwyn is in the midst of a runaway building growth – third only to Auckland and Christchurch according to building consent data. Under the accord, 10 per cent of new homes would have to be in the affordable range (about 75 per cent of the median house price in Selwyn). It includes land owned by the Dryden Trust and Dean Geddes, bordered by Springston Rolleston Rd and Selwyn Rd, as well as Hughes Developments land south of the Faringdon subdivision.

CONTAMINATION Contamination remediation work is being undertaken at the site of the old BP petrol station on Main South Rd, Rolleston, now owned by the district council. The contamination includes lead and diesel in the soils as well as asbestos sheet waste. Concrete foundations, part of the existing seal and soil are being removed. The land is expected to either become open space or used for roading.

GROWTH: A housing accord is designed to help housing supply keep up with demand in fast growing Rolleston.

As special housing areas, developers of the land would benefit from proactive council pre-application processes, fast-tracked consenting as well as limited notification and appeal. The report to the district council meeting said the accord would

require changes to the district and regional plans and a “significant contribution” from developers would be required. “It is not possible at this point to be definitive about overall costs. However. it is fair to say costs with these types of pro-

cesses are never inexpensive,” the report said. Selwyn’s population has boomed since the earthquakes and between 60 and 80 building consents for new homes in Rolleston are being issued every month.

CORRECTION In last week’s edition of the The Selwyn Times it was stated that district councillor Debra Hasson did not support mayor Kelvin Coe’s submission on the return of democracy to Environment Canterbury. This was incorrect. Selwyn Times apologises for the error.

Police focus on back roads Ducking down a back road won’t be so easy for those looking to escape getting caught drink driving over the summer. Police will be carrying out more random patrols on rural roads over the coming summer, while the booze bus will be deployed in rural as well as urban areas. The action is tied into a new drink driving campaign aiming to keep the road toll down. The district council is one of four rural Canterbury councils taking part in the Christmas and New Year campaign, which encourages drivers to plan a safe ride home if they have had a few drinks. Between 2010 and 2014, 145 crashes involving alcohol were recorded on Selwyn roads. There were 13 deaths and 35 people seriously injured as a result of alcohol related crashes. Authorities are concerned that drink drivers may believe they have a lower chance of being stopped by police when they drive on rural back roads. District council road safety co-ordinator Ngaire Tinning said drink driving was never acceptable as it put everyone at risk of being injured or killed. “Good options to think about are to have a sober driver, use the

7

courtesy van, share designated driver duties, or invite friends to sleep over so they don’t need to be on the road if they have been drinking.” Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said the police message was that people should either drink, or drive, not both. “We don’t support the people in the industry saying that it’s safe to have two drinks. For some people that might be really unsafe. For lots of people, more than one drink is one drink too many.” Mrs Tinning said she was confident the culture was slowly changing as people realised the dangers. “It is becoming unacceptable now to drink drive. People are looking at different ways of enjoying themselves and getting home safely.” As part of the summer campaign, posters, coasters, bar mats and pens will be given out to hotels, taverns and other licensed premises in Selwyn in early December. Mrs Tinning said that local hotels and taverns already did a great job with host responsibility, RURAL: Police will carry out random patrols on rural roads with the with almost all premises having booze bus deployed in rural and urban areas in a bid to stop drink drivers.

University to boost accommodation Lincoln University will establish more than 50 new beds by the first semester of next year as it seeks to meet high levels of demand for student accommodation. The plans involve commissioning new relocatable buildings and refurbishing existing ones. After having room to spare in 2013 and 2014, all beds on campus were occupied in 2015. The university’s deputy vicechancellor, international and business development, Jeremy Baker said applications for accommodation in 2016 were up significantly, with more more domestic students applying than in the last five years. The relocatable accommodation will include 30 beds in six houses and two 10-bed student accommodation blocks. The houses will be constructed off-site and placed in existing accommodation zones on campus. The university’s overall student numbers have stayed relatively consistent over the last three years.

Santa Claus

Father Christmas gears up for It is all hustle and bustle up in the North Pole with Christmas preparations well under way. Georgia O’Connor-Harding speaks to him about his favorite song, what he wants for Christmas and which toy is all the rage with the children this year

HO HO HO: Santa Claus has arrived and is getting all geared up for his big Christmas trip around the world.

Paul and the team at Somerfield Upholstery want to thank all their customers for their support and wish them

BEFORE

Hello Santa! It is so exciting to talk to you. I’ve always wanted to know, what is your favorite Christmas tune? I like a lot of them but if I had to choose . . . what’s the name of the dog? Snoopy’s Christmas. I love that song too. How are preparations for the big trip around the world going? Well we are getting all the orders in, all the mail with the requests. And we are just making sure the sleigh is big enough to carry everything. We are making sure the reindeer are

well fed. I’ve also got my GPS all set to go. Nice, I was wondering how do you fit all your presents in one sleigh? It’s a real mystery isn’t it? We get there though. Very good, because many of us are wondering, how do you travel around the whole world in one night?  With great difficulty sometimes, but every year we always seem to make it through. It is all go. You see on the television they keep a report on where I am in every country. It is all broadcast to the kids. What toy is in hot demand this year? The minions. It’s a new thing out and is the flavour of the month. I think the iPads were all out last year so the kids don’t want them anymore. They want something new. Ah, the minions. Do the children want big cuddly toy minions or what’s the story there? There are games, books, stuffed toys. A big variety. And apparently there is a shortage in the very well-loved LEGO toy collection this year. How have you and your elves got round that?

Well, there has only been one request so far this year for them. And the boy said just any LEGO. There is a variety of requests but there doesn’t seem to be a lot. I usually get the first bookings. I already have the new Star Wars LEGO collection that has just come out booked. What is your favorite toy to make? Boats are my thing. I’ve done a bit of building and sailing in my time.  When you go to deliver these toys all over the world, I imagine there are always a few hiccups along the way. What do you do if someone doesn’t have a chimney to go down? Well it’s a bit of problem these days with modern houses, none of them have got chimneys. We have to improvise but usually they leave a window open for us. Or the garage door sometimes if it is a big parcel they are expecting.  When you come down the chimney, what sort of treats are you looking to find this year? I would like a bit of Christmas cake and an orange juice. Any treat that is just off limits?

festive fever

Yes. I don’t like alcohol unfortunately but as long as it is Christmas cake and orange juice I am very happy. Which list is bigger? The naughty or nice list? The nice list is well and truly bigger than the naughty list. There are only a few naughty ones. Haven’t struck any just of late. Have you had a lot of children come and visit you here? Yes, I have had a few and they are all quite nice. Very polite and they all say “thank you’’ when I give them a gift. That is great to hear, I would like to know, what is the most interesting request you have had? Let’s see. I have had a lot of them. One of the sad ones was a brother and sister. They were about 18 and they wanted their mother to come back home from Auckland and live with them. Apparently she did a runner. And you get the odd kids that ask for happy families over Christmas. And one child yesterday wrote a note saying he wants his present to go to a child in Fiji who doesn’t get presents. So you see quite a few like that. I think one of the unusual ones was a woman come in and asked if she could have a baby. What did you say to that? I was stuck for words. You must get a few interesting ones through. Yes, and the oldest one that came to see me was a 93-year-old and asked me for some nice new clothes. The youngest was

about eight-hours-old. Straight from the hospital to me. Will you get any presents this year Santa? Ooh I don’t know. Hopefully the elves and Mrs Claus will give me something. It’s like the kids– they don’t know what they are getting either. What would you like for Christmas? It’s time we got a new sleigh. The old one is getting a bit tattered.

Local hero recognised your

LOCAL Achievers

TOM DOUDNEY

Dedicated service to Hororata School and helping grow the local gun club have netted Rebecca Smith a Kiwibank Local Heroes Award. The Te Pirita resident was one of 28 Canterbury award winners to have her medal presented by Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel at a ceremony held recently at Addington Raceway. Now in their seventh year, the annual awards celebrate good deeds in the community. This year, 292 medals will be presented nationwide. Mrs Smith, who runs a dairy farm with her husband Heath, was embarrassed but also honoured and grateful at the recognition, after being nominated by her son Harry. “It’s pretty cool,” she said. “When they called out my name I was a little bit of a blithering mess about it because of

HONOURED: Rebecca Smith, centre, with Kiwibank chief executive Paul Brock and Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel.

the emotion of the situation.” She said there were a lot of other people in the community who also did a lot of work and were just as deserving of the award. Mrs Smith has been on the school’s parent teacher association for seven years, including two years as president. She stepped down from that role earlier this year to focus on her fledgling business, Rural Tenancy Inspections. During her time as president, she was involved with starting

the Hororata Pig and Possum Hunt, now an annual event. “We were looking for an event to try and bring people into the community as well and raise funds for the school, just being a little bit of a rural community,” she said. Hororata School principal Marty Gameson said Mrs Smith was a deserving recipient of the award and a community-minded person who had put a lot into the school. As well as the parent teacher association, she had been on a

number of other committees in the Hororata area as well. Mrs Smith has been secretarytreasurer of the Mead Te Pirita Gun Club since 2013 when her husband asked if she would lend a hand. “When he asked me to help out, there were three members and we would get 15 or 20 people to each shoot. Now we have got maybe 15 to 20 permanent members and we get an average 50 to 60 people to each shoot.” Harry said his mother was “a hard worker, problem solver and a loving caring person” who could still find the time to help others in spite of being busy with the new business. In December, the judging panel – comprising representatives of all the awards patrons, presenters, sponsors, community leaders and independent experts – will decide the 10 Kiwibank New Zealand Local Hero of the Year semi-finalists, with three finalists to be announced in the New Year. All national finalists will attend the New Zealander of the Year Awards Gala where one will be named the 2016 Kiwibank New Zealand Local Hero of the Year.

your local Views Cantabrians not second-class citizens EUGENIE SAGE, GREEN MP

Last week the Selwyn Times reported that Mayor Kelvin Coe was criticised by city council Deputy Mayor Vicki Buck over district council’s stance to retain Enviornment Canterbury commissioners. This Soapbox is in response. People in Canterbury should not be second-class citizens having to live with secondclass local body representation. Yet this is what the Government is proposing with its Environment Canterbury (Transitional Governance Arrangements) Bill. It would allow voters to elect only seven members of the regional council at the local body elections next October. Government ministers would appoint the six other members of ECan. Recently, a parliamentary select committee heard submissions on the bill in Christchurch. MPs listened to submitter after submitter calling for the restoration of full regional democracy. As Christchurch City Council said in its submission, the Government has never properly explained why a fully elected regional council cannot provide effective, accountable decision making and strong organisational performance. The city council which represents 62 per cent of Canterbury’s population called for commissioners to be replaced by elected representatives as soon as possible so that all members of ECan were accountable to citizens and ratepayers. It was disappointing that the district council did not share that view.

SOAP BOX No other regional or unitary council in the country has Government appointees at the council table. But no other regional council is responsible for 60 per cent of the water allocated for irrigation in New Zealand. Having ministers appoint six council members would allow them to hand-pick individuals supportive of the Government’s business growth agenda and more irrigation and agricultural intensification. It was notable that the Waitaki Irrigators’ Collective and Hurunui Water Project were among the few submitters supporting Government appointees on ECan. Te Runanga o Ngāi Tahu wants Ngai Tahu to be able to appoint three members of ECan to help implement the Treaty of Waitangi and the Ngai Tahu settlement legislation. Maori make up 15 per cent of New Zealand’s population, but only four per cent of councillors around the country are Maori. This option deserves thought. Otherwise it is time for the National Government to trust the people of Canterbury to elect competent councillors and for them to do their job and be accountable to those they represent in managing the region’s transport planning, water, air, coast, and natural hazards.

Something on your mind? Email tom.doudney@starmedia.kiwi in 150 words or less Facebook us on www.facebook.com/selwyntimes Southbridge resident John Summers takes issue with district councillor Pat McEvedy (Soap Box, the Selwyn Times, November 10) and Southbridge Advisory Committee member Martin Wellby (readers’ letters, the Selwyn Times, November 24) over their views that we need to be more cautious when attributing nitrate contamination of groundwater to agricultural activities: Mayoral wannabe Pat McEvedy and advisory committee member Martin Wellby can disagree with the Canterbury medical officer of health Dr Alastair Humphrey until the cows come home. They both have skin in the game to some extent (as elected representatives) whereas Dr Humphrey, like the parliamentary commissioner for the environment Jan Wright, has statutory duties independent of political considerations. Dr Humphrey will be guided by the precautionary principle where a risk is unclear. Just because my own baby days are over I shouldn’t feign unconcern about even the possibility of an unavoidable blue baby in Selwyn. It is ridiculous to suggest this is farmer bashing. It is regrettable but not coincidental that the biggest land use change on the Canterbury Plain since white settlement has happened in tandem with degradation of our water, both surface and underground. This should concern us all. District councillor Pat McEvedy responds I agree environmental issues should concern us all, but to address these issues decisions need to be made. As chairman of the SelwynWaihora zone committee I learnt that the best way to make good decisions was for our committee to be provided with accurate information. Someone in Dr Humphrey’s

position should relay the risk, not speculate when making statements. It is unfortunate that someone in such an important position should be anything other than accurate. Any risk to human health needs to be taken very seriously and to halt the decline and improve water quality is a goal we should all share. To make progress on such an important goal we need to collect accurate data and use that information to put in place the appropriate measures. If Mr Summers wishes to discuss this further, I am available anytime. Terance Hancock, Lincoln: I note Cr Pat McEvedy has made his mind up to stand for mayor at next year’s local body elections. He is quoted as saying: “I think that I have got a bit of vision of how I WANT to see Selwyn.” Shouldn’t any prospective mayoral candidate have a bit of vision of how the residents and ratepayers want to see Selwyn? No further comment required. P Williamson, of Ellesmere, writes in response to Mayor Kelvin Coe and district councillor Pat McEvedy who supported the Government’s decision for a partial rather than full return to democracy for

Environment Canterbury at the next election. The pair defended the stance after criticism from Christchurch Deputy Mayor Vicki Buck. My view is that our current mayor and district councillors should really take time to find out what the voting public of our area want before airing their viewpoint, let alone finger pointing and suggesting who is out of step. Vicki Buck was the mayor of Christchurch for some time. She was a very popular mayor, mainly because she took the time to find out what it was the voting public really wanted. Instead of saying ‘what I want’, or ‘my view is’, Vicki will have formed her current opinion based on the views of the voting public. Perhaps these current and aspiring mayors would do well to remember they are there to represent the voting public. Mayor Coe and Cr Pat McEvedy, I’m with Vicki. You are certainly not speaking for me. Mr Coe was one of the group of mayors around Canterbury who went to the Government and basically handed over ECan to the Government who in turn did the big ‘take-over’. This was all in the name of water and we’re kidding ourselves if we think it was anything else. These mayors did this with no mandate from the voting public.

SELWYN TIMES

Now these elected local Government folk think that it is more than reasonable to ‘ease’ a fully democratically voted Ecan council back into power. In my view, if it was okay for the Government of the day to whisk away our democratic rights, then it is okay to reinstate them just as quickly without the need for Government minders. Give us back our full democratic vote. District councillor Peter Hill writes on the same issue . . . The question of the lack of democracy in Canterbury is not a vexed one. It is just plain wrong. We Cantabrians have, frankly, had a gutsful of paying rates to an organisation which has paid no heed to the majority of our wishes and which has, via central government, continued to show disrespect and a lack of trust in our ability to decide what is best for our province. No other large group of people here has ever been treated like this. Early Americans paid taxes to Britain yet had no say in the running of their colony. They won the resulting bloody war. While I am not advocating going to war, I am shocked that some of our community leaders support this treatment of their fellow Cantabrians. It is worth noting that while just two of us around the Selwyn District Council table voiced disapproval of the council’s submission on this matter, no vote was taken and I’d be surprised, given an honest vote, if several more of our colleagues wouldn’t disagree with the mayor. Before the inception of this lengthening period of regional dictatorship, the largely rural mayoral forum listened to complaints from their agricultural constituents regarding the precautionary approach being taken by our regional representitives with respect to their usage of our water. The Christchurch City Council, representing the vast majority of regional ratepayers, pulled its support for this early mayoral stand and now calls for an immediate return of our democracy. It becomes a bit rich for our council, coat-tailing on the rural mayors, to claim a majority view.

Tell us what’s happening at your club. Email tom.doudney@starmedia.kiwi WEST MELTON GYM CLUB The West Melton Gym Club was resurrected in 2006 after being closed for about five years. Using leftover equipment stored at the West Melton Hall, Pam Higgins, with help from two other local women, ran the club on Friday afternoons. It has grown and the club now holds classes on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons. Onehour-long after school class starts at 3.30pm. There are two after-school classes on Wednesday, four on Thursday and three on Friday. Pre-school classes are on Wednesday and Friday, 2-3pm. The programme teaches fundamental skills. Gymnasts also are given the opportunity to sit badges and compete at recreational level.

Looking Back ATTENTION: Officers and non-comissioned officers of the Ellesmere Guard in 1901.

•Heritage photos supplied by Selwyn Libraries. If you have any information about this photo, please contact the library via www. selwynlibrary.co.nz

Gymnasts learn specific routines with grades going from gym fun through to elite. Over the last five years, the club has hosted a competition at the Rolleston Community Centre. This is its one big fundraiser for the year and clubs come from all over the South Island. Since re-opening, membership has grown to more than 100 gymnasts. The club has purchased new bars, mats, boxes and for the new year it is going to purchase a vaulting platform. In the future, the aim is to find a new venue in or around the area that have the equipment set up all the time. The club could then expand into all the gym sports and be able to offer trampolining and rhythmic gymnastics. Classes are based at West Melton

Hall on West Coast Rd. For any inquiries you can phone Pam Higgins on 03 318 1519 or 027 345 1713 or email westmeltongymclub@outlook. com WAIHORA PONY CLUB Formed in 1951, the Waihora Pony Club is based on the Motukarara Domain grounds. The clubrooms were moved to the present site by some of the founding families. The club prides itself on its down-toearth grassroots atmosphere and its history. It still has strong connections with its founding members. Those who rode there as children now have the enjoyment of watching their grandchildren ride on the same grounds. Groups of riders are presently

working towards their B, C+, C, D+ and D certificates. The club has a group of keen senior riders who are out and about eventing most weekends and there are a large number of junior riders out competing as well. The committee has worked hard to upgrade the facilities available to members over the years. The 2014 season saw the opening of a new 60m by 60m all-weather arena, horse pens and upgraded entranceway. More recently there has been a new washdown area added and the club has been working on revamping the clubrooms and putting in a new kitchen.

$4800 for Lincoln High water project

A Lincoln High School water monitoring project has been given a $4800 boost. The money was donated by Caltex as part of the ‘Fuel Your School’ promotion. The Royal Society of New Zealand and Caltex run the promotion to provide funding for schools’ science, technology, engineering and mathematics projects. The funds will be used to buy scientific equipment that will be used to collect data on local

waterways around Lincoln. Data will be collated on a yearly basis with different year 10 science classes in the hope to identify trends in the waterways’ health and create social action to change current water use and conservation. Lincoln was one of 27 schools from around New Zealand chosen from among 220 applications to receive a share of the national funding pool of $100,000. The fund was built up from July 27 to August 23, when

Caltex donated 25c every time an AA Smartfuel customer redeemed their savings at participating petrol stations. The winning projects were chosen by the Royal Society and Caltex. Principal Kathy Paterson was very excited to see the school’s application succeed. “The science staff work very hard to make science a focus for students and this funding will support the fine work our teachers do in this area.”

COMING ALONG NICELY: Preparations for opening West Rolleston Primary School at the start of next year are progressing well, principal Sylvia Fidow says. Work on the site is largely complete, with internal work on the buildings and grass sowing among the final jobs to complete. All staffing appointments for next year have been confirmed and the team recently had a tour of the site. There are 72 children already enrolled for 2016 and some of those have had the chance to help select books from the Children’s Bookshop for the school’s library and information centre. “The Library has been deliberately placed next to our office and main entrance as it is a space we hope families will come along to share our love of reading and quality literature,” Ms Fidow said. “The handover [from the Ministry of Education] for the school site will occur for us on the January 18 and we cannot wait to get in there, get organised and bring our fabulous children and families into our school.” RIGHT: New entrant teachers Laura Finn, Kate Duncan and Amanda Clarkson were among those to get a tour of the school site recently. $99,999 2011 dodge ram 1500 laramie 4wd 5.7 Hemi V8, this is the ultimate towing vehicle and in immaculate condition.

Line a large roasting tray with baking paper for easy clean-up. Mix together all the ingredients for the marinade. Pour over the chicken nibbles and let marinate for at least half an hour. Put the chicken pieces into the roasting tray and bake for 30-40mins or until they are cooked through. Turn once while they are cooking.

Place the lamb skin-side up in a roasting dish and roast for 30 minutes, then lower the temperature to 150 deg C and roast for a further 2 hours. Transfer the lamb to a serving dish or board and carve into slices. You can serves with a rich pilaf, which includes minced lamb, pine nuts, pistachio nuts and whole almonds. However, a simpler recipe also makes a good accompaniment for the spiced meat or the fish fillets. Simple Rice Pilaf Dice the onion very finely and put it into a heavy saucepan with the olive oil and butter. Fry gently until the onion is translucent but not coloured. Add the rice and stir until it becomes milky, rather than translucent. Remove from the heat and season with salt and a little pepper. To avoid being burnt by the steam, avert your face while you add the water. Return the rice to a moderate heat and simmer until the water is almost all absorbed. Cover with a lid and lower the heat. Cook for 15 minutes, then remove from the heat and set aside, still covered, for another 15min.

Total Fire Ban

introduced

Water restrictions introduced Formal mandatory water restrictions have been introduced for properties connected to Council water supplies.

A prohibited fire season (total fire ban) was declared in Selwyn last week and is now in place. Under the restrictions no outdoor fires can be lit in the district. The burning of crop stubble is also not allowed. Gas barbeques with a high pressure water source at hand are allowed but not charcoal barbeques. Fires are also not permitted in Council reserves and all fire permits previously issued by the Council are also cancelled. The district’s Principal Rural Fire Officer Douglas Marshall says that vegetation in Selwyn District is now very dry and a prohibited fire season has been introduced to help ensure that the risk of fires breaking out is minimised. “Selwyn has been experiencing hot, dry weather along with strong winds and this provides ideal conditions for fires to spread quickly,” he says. Mr Marshall says that people need to be very vigilant in this weather to avoid any activities that could start a fire. “We would discourage people from mowing the lawn or operating machinery during the heat of the day as sparks can easily ignite in the heat, and instead carry out these activities when it is cooler. Letting off fireworks is also not allowed in the current conditions.”

Reducing fire risk You can help to reduce the fire risk, and make sure that fire services can quickly access your property to put out a fire if one does start, by: · Avoiding operating lawn mowers or other machinery during hot weather as sparks can easily ignite in these conditions, and waiting until the weather is cooler to mow lawns or operate machinery. If you do need to use machinery or a lawn mower, having a source of water nearby for fire firefighting is advisable as a precaution · regularly checking and maintaining machinery and equipment so it is safe to operate · disposing of ashes from an indoor fire safely in a metal container and use approved incinerators · keeping a hose connected that can reach round the house · storing firewood and other flammable materials away from the house · check any old fires and ensure they are fully extinguished. Dig the fire with a shovel and douse with water · in rural areas keep a clear space between your house and buildings and vegetation like trees, shrubs and long grass to act as a fire break. Keep this space watered and green if possible or construct it from non-flammable material like paving stones. · make sure your property number is easy to see and that it has a clear access way four metres wide and high so that fire services can easily access your property if needed If you see any fire – report it immediately by phoning 111.

Rubbish collection days and weeks changing

Rainfall during 2015 has been much lower than normal, meaning that groundwater levels are significantly lower than usual and have not had an opportunity to recharge adequately over winter. Environment Canterbury has restricted groundwater consumption for a number water supplies because of low ground water levels. Strong El Nino conditions are forecast to continue to affect Canterbury over summer, leading to low rainfall and higher than normal demand for water from households. The water restrictions have been introduced by the Council to help manage demand for water so it occurs more evenly throughout the day and week, to sustainably manage water supplies and meet Environment Canterbury requirements.

Under the water restrictions: · Watering of lawns is permitted between 9am and 4pm and between 9pm and 6am on alternate days only. If your street address number is even then you may water on even numbered days, if your street address number is an odd number then you may water on odd numbered days. For example if your property number is 2, 24b or 108 you can water your lawn as needed on the 8,10,12 December and so on during the permitted times. If watering during the daytime we recommend choosing a cooler day to reduce evaporation · Garden watering is permitted at any time · There is a requirement to decrease demand especially during peak periods. This means that you should only use as much water as you need to, only water during permitted hours and avoid wasting water If demand for water is particularly high, water pressure will be reduced to sustain the supply. More stringent water restrictions could be introduced if demand for water continues to be high. The NIWA graphic below shows that conditions this year are extremely dry compared to previous years, by comparing the historical average soil moisture deficit to this year’s level for 6 December.

Historical average deficit at 9am 6 Dec

From this week, changes to rubbish, organic and recycling collection days will affect approximately 1,800 Selwyn households in several areas of the district. If your property is affected by a change, you should have received a letter from the Council about this. If you are renting, the letter will have been addressed to your landlord so please 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.’

Deficit at 9am on 6 Dec 2015

Road repairs are planned to Springston Rolleston (between Waterholes and Shands Roads), Goulds (between Dynes and Springston Rolleston) and Ellesmere Junction Roads, with stop and go signs being used by contractors to control traffic.

Total Fire Ban

introduced

Water restrictions introduced Formal mandatory water restrictions have been introduced for properties connected to Council water supplies.

A prohibited fire season (total fire ban) was declared in Selwyn last week and is now in place. Under the restrictions no outdoor fires can be lit in the district. The burning of crop stubble is also not allowed. Gas barbeques with a high pressure water source at hand are allowed but not charcoal barbeques. Fires are also not permitted in Council reserves and all fire permits previously issued by the Council are also cancelled. The district’s Principal Rural Fire Officer Douglas Marshall says that vegetation in Selwyn District is now very dry and a prohibited fire season has been introduced to help ensure that the risk of fires breaking out is minimised. “Selwyn has been experiencing hot, dry weather along with strong winds and this provides ideal conditions for fires to spread quickly,” he says. Mr Marshall says that people need to be very vigilant in this weather to avoid any activities that could start a fire. “We would discourage people from mowing the lawn or operating machinery during the heat of the day as sparks can easily ignite in the heat, and instead carry out these activities when it is cooler. Letting off fireworks is also not allowed in the current conditions.”

Reducing fire risk You can help to reduce the fire risk, and make sure that fire services can quickly access your property to put out a fire if one does start, by: · Avoiding operating lawn mowers or other machinery during hot weather as sparks can easily ignite in these conditions, and waiting until the weather is cooler to mow lawns or operate machinery. If you do need to use machinery or a lawn mower, having a source of water nearby for fire firefighting is advisable as a precaution · regularly checking and maintaining machinery and equipment so it is safe to operate · disposing of ashes from an indoor fire safely in a metal container and use approved incinerators · keeping a hose connected that can reach round the house · storing firewood and other flammable materials away from the house · check any old fires and ensure they are fully extinguished. Dig the fire with a shovel and douse with water · in rural areas keep a clear space between your house and buildings and vegetation like trees, shrubs and long grass to act as a fire break. Keep this space watered and green if possible or construct it from non-flammable material like paving stones. · make sure your property number is easy to see and that it has a clear access way four metres wide and high so that fire services can easily access your property if needed If you see any fire – report it immediately by phoning 111.

Rubbish collection days and weeks changing

Rainfall during 2015 has been much lower than normal, meaning that groundwater levels are significantly lower than usual and have not had an opportunity to recharge adequately over winter. Environment Canterbury has restricted groundwater consumption for a number water supplies because of low ground water levels. Strong El Nino conditions are forecast to continue to affect Canterbury over summer, leading to low rainfall and higher than normal demand for water from households. The water restrictions have been introduced by the Council to help manage demand for water so it occurs more evenly throughout the day and week, to sustainably manage water supplies and meet Environment Canterbury requirements.

Under the water restrictions: · Watering of lawns is permitted between 9am and 4pm and between 9pm and 6am on alternate days only. If your street address number is even then you may water on even numbered days, if your street address number is an odd number then you may water on odd numbered days. For example if your property number is 2, 24b or 108 you can water your lawn as needed on the 8,10,12 December and so on during the permitted times. If watering during the daytime we recommend choosing a cooler day to reduce evaporation · Garden watering is permitted at any time · There is a requirement to decrease demand especially during peak periods. This means that you should only use as much water as you need to, only water during permitted hours and avoid wasting water If demand for water is particularly high, water pressure will be reduced to sustain the supply. More stringent water restrictions could be introduced if demand for water continues to be high. The NIWA graphic below shows that conditions this year are extremely dry compared to previous years, by comparing the historical average soil moisture deficit to this year’s level for 6 December.

Historical average deficit at 9am 6 Dec

From this week, changes to rubbish, organic and recycling collection days will affect approximately 1,800 Selwyn households in several areas of the district. If your property is affected by a change, you should have received a letter from the Council about this. If you are renting, the letter will have been addressed to your landlord so please 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.’

Deficit at 9am on 6 Dec 2015

Road repairs are planned to Springston Rolleston (between Waterholes and Shands Roads), Goulds (between Dynes and Springston Rolleston) and Ellesmere Junction Roads, with stop and go signs being used by contractors to control traffic. Road repairs are also planned to Telegraph Road (between Cardale and Creyke Roads) and Rockwood Road, which will remain open with traffic controls in place.

Field capacity

This week resealing work is planned along Dunns Crossing and Robinsons Roads, Robyn Place and Leinster Terrace. Stop and go signs will be used for traffic control.

Halswell cricket goes down to wire Halswell’s last one-day cricket match of the season went down to the wire on Saturday. The team pulled off the win over Richmond after a seesawing affair with bat and ball at Halswell Domain. Halswell won the toss and batted first and were looking to post a big score after reaching 80-2. However, a middle-order collapse saw them reduced to 1208 until the last two partnerships showed some fight. In particular, the crucial last wicket stand of 70 between Eddie Quirke and Dale Eathorne allowed Halswell to post a score of 205, with Eathorne finishing on 63 not out . Halswell’s bowlers took early wickets to gain the upper hand but Richmond also showed some fight to recover. The chase came down to the last pair at the crease needing 25 runs for the victory. They came within five runs before Geoff Barclay claimed the last wicket to give him five for the match. This weekend, Halswell will play in the two-day competition, which they lead, against Merivale-Papanui in their last game before the Christmas break.

CHAMPIONS: An Ellesmere Golf Club team has won the Central Canterbury Golf Masters Competition. Pictured (back, from left), Peter Burnett, Chris Fox, club president Russell Chapman; and (front), Tony Simkin, Bruce McDonald, Ian Fever and Bill Joyce. The competition is played between golf clubs in the central Canterbury area from Akaroa to Hororata, with teams of six men. Ellesmere played Weedons Golf Club’s red team at Burnham in the final, with Ellesmere winning six matches to three. It was a close competition, not decided until the last green was played out.

Sports

TOP COURSE Tai Tapu Golf Course has been named the country’s top nine hole course in a national survey. The New Zealand Golf survey asked players from around the country to name their favourite course. Results indicating a player’s home course was their favourite were excluded to remove bias. Manager Steve Piper said the result was a credit to the hard work of everyone involved with maintaining the course. Queenstown’s Jack’s Point Golf Course was voted the top course overall.

During the last few weeks he was named in the Touch Canterbury under 15 team, the Canterbury Softball under 15 A team and the extended Baseball New Zealand under 15 squad. The latter will be culled later this month, with some players not making the final cut.

Add interest by landscaping

VISUAL: Construct your outdoor area around furniture and planters.

Areas of interest in the backyard include pools, ponds and waterfalls – while plantings are still an integral part of any concept they’re being applied in less traditional ways. Today’s circulating pumps allow you to enjoy the soothing sight and sound of a water feature at nominal cost. You won’t necessarily have to call in teams of excavators either – even a small water feature can make a big impact on the surrounding garden. Let your creativity run riot. You can build your feature around anything from a Mexican or Grecian urn, to a rustic watering can, an old farm pump, pebbles, rock forms or even an artfully formed sheet of stainless steel. A wall covered in ceramic tiles or built from glass bricks with a shimmering sheet of water running down its face can create a stunning backdrop for striking leaf forms, especially when lit up. Pebbles and rocks can bring a softening, natural element or equally a sense of theatre to the garden. You might need some professional help with this one, especially if you’re attempting a

naturalised design. But in summer, the sight of water cascading down a fern-clad rocky face into a cool, deep pool really is a thing of beauty and something that will bring you a lot of pleasure in years to come. Once you’ve got your outdoor areas planned and constructed to your satisfaction incorporating the right furniture, lighting, planters and features is vitally important. Investing the same amount of energy here as you give to your home’s interior design will see you reaping the rewards. Most families start and finish an interior remodel before moving to an exterior plan, often

without considering the relationship between the two places. Far better to think of your deck or patio as an extension of your home – another room that just happens to exist outside – and not as something separate that only requires attention in the spring and summer months. Tying in outdoor accessories with your interior scheme is another good idea. This enables an easy flow between the two spaces. Pay special attention to furniture and colours. If your interior design shouts modernist minimalism echo the effect outdoors with sleek outdoor loungers and clean lines.

The main street will be closed off to traffic to allow families and friends plenty of space to explore what is on offer, including food and drinks as well as a range of gifts – suitable for all of those on your list. The Lincoln Rotary Club and Lincoln Volunteer Fire Brigade will be selling raffle tickets outside Lincoln Hammer Hardware for Christmas hams and other prizes. With the Lincoln Farmers and Craft Market recently relocated to the new area next to the Lincoln Library, this is proving to be a wonderful location and a great asset. On the Lincoln Parade Day, Santa’s Grotto, kids’ face painting and the Junior Buskers Competition will all be in this area, with a bouncy castle and kids’ jeeps to hire located nearby as well. To help get this celebration underway, there will be music provided by the Ellesmere Big Band and Flying Dixies playing from 9.30 to 12.15 outside Lincoln Japanese Sushi

“There’s no other sport like that really that you can play with the best people in the world at the same time.” It is the first year Canterbury Equine Clinic have had top naming rights of the tournament after being a team sponsor last year. The tournament also makes the game available to everyone – to see this sport played at an exceptional level. Spectators can pack a picnic and enjoy games from 11am to 4pm in a relaxed setting. The competition takes place over four weekends, with the finals being held at the Port Hills Polo Club on Dean Geddes’ property on the corner of Gilmours and Wardstay roads in Tai Tapu. Many of the events also incorporate fundraisers for local community organisations, including Ronald McDonald House.

Want to play?

Polo is a game open to people of all ages, whether you have ridden a horse before or not. In fact, some of the current top New Zealand players now playing in the South Island tournament had never ridden before they started playing. There is minimal cost involved if you want to give the game a try. Most clubs will lend horses and equipment for those willing to have a go. Elite polo player Olly Tuthill informs us that the first go at the sport will cost you no more than a round of golf. “New Zealand is lucky because it doesn’t have the same social stigma attached to it as it does in other countries. It’s a sport that is really social and enjoyable for both the players and spectators.” Traditionally, it has been known as a family sport with generations of players passing the polo legacy on to their children, however the introduction of the school and university SUPA competition has opened up the sport to a whole new level with great results. If you want to give the game a try or want to find out more, please contact South Island Polo president Bryan Burrows on 027 443 8244.

P

olo is described as hockey on horseback. It is played by two teams with four players in each team. They use a mallet “stick” while riding the ponies to aim a small plastic ball at a goal. They line up parallel to each other in the centre of the field. Two mounted umpires control the game. The game begins when one umpire throws the ball down the centre between the two lines of players. Using skill and speed manoeuvring horses, each team tries to score by knocking the ball through the opposition team’s goal posts. The game is broken down into chukkas of seven-and-a-half minutes in length. In this particular tournament, there are five chukkas per game. At half time, spectators may be asked to repair the ground by stamping divots back into the field. After each goal is scored, teams change ends.

The horses

The horses which participate in the sport have been skilfully trained to play the game and take the knocks that come with the sport. Generally in New Zealand, small thoroughbreds are used in the sport. Horses are generally about five years old when they begin playing and reach their peak at about 10 years of age. Some horses play the sport until they are 18 years old.

that commitment, Daryl’s studies also helped him reconnect with his iwi, Ngati Maniapoto. Daryl has now received an official apology from Ministry of Social Development chief executive Brendan Boyle for his years of maltreatment. The investigation revealed 40 serious cases of misconducts by social workers and caregivers against him. And Daryl’s committed to improving the system. His presentations to staff in social agencies and caregivers has forced some to reevaluate their careers. “Some people have quit their jobs, others have walked out of the room in tears and some have said they want to do their jobs better. “At the end of the day, I understand the social worker’s role and the foster carer’s role. When you put those things together then go into a social work role, you see things so differently. “We have run down the track with the same people and the same ideas and system, and the (Children and Raewyn Clegg Young Person’s) Registered Teacher of Act hasn’t changed Piano and Theory of since 1989.

First aid training must cover the outcomes of the NZQA first aid unit standards being assessed and any additional modules identified by the employer through the workplace risk assessment process as outlined in Department of Labour guidelines. Only first aid training providers accredited by NZQA can award the credits and issue a first aid certificate. NZQA conduct regular External Evaluative Reviews on all training providers. New Zealand Red Cross is proud to hold a double Highly Confident accreditation in both Educational Performance and Capability in Self-Assessment. This means that NZ Red Cross is a Category One training provider. First aid refresher training Refresher training is required every two years to maintain the certificates. The requirement allows for a three-month period of grace, so the cut off period is two years and three months which should allow sufficient time to enrol onto a suitable course. If a certificate is not renewed for more than three calendar months from the second anniversary date of issue, it will be necessary for the certificate holder to complete full first aid training to maintain currency.

s a graduate of our Bachelor of Social Work with an influential role at Child, Youth and Family, you wouldn’t know from looking at 35-year-old Daryl Brougham the long, hard road he’s travelled. Daryl was placed with 79 different foster homes throughout his childhood. He thought his surname was “Foster,” and his life was a spiral of emotional, physical and sexual abuse from so-called “caregivers” – the majority of whom were not approved by social agencies. Adding to the tragedy is his removal from the few families who, looking back, he believes truly cared for him. Take this story and eventually enter into the picture Te Wananga o Aotearoa at our Manukau campus.  Through the beatings, abuse and deprivation of his upbringing, Daryl always held hope that the next home would be better, but understandably at times, his behavior reflected the treatment he was receiving. At one point, a social worker said to him, “Daryl, the way you’re going you’re going to end up in jail.” Daryl’s response? “I looked at him and thought, I’m going to become a social worker. And I will do things differently and better.” Our Bachelor in Social Work not only provided him with the skills and qualifications to follow through with

hile first aid courses must achieve prescribed New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) standards to be certified, not all training providers deliver the same course. Some courses range from teaching only the basic NZQA specified content and nothing else, to providing detailed and comprehensive content designed to familiarise participants to a wide range of likely emergencies. Providers offering shortened courses or courses not meeting NZQA training requirements are now in the spotlight. NZQA and the Department of Labour have published a factsheet to outline requirements for providers, learners and employers for first aid training based on currently registered NZQA unit standards. Below are a summary of what we think you should know. Course differences Training providers can market their courses under a wide range of names such as Essential First Aid, Workplace First Aid or Comprehensive First Aid and many other eye-catching titles. The content of courses can also vary. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that employees attend courses appropriate to their industry risks. Unit standard-based first aid training The minimum duration of first aid training and assessment will be for training based on: • Unit standards 6400, 6401 (or 26552) and 6402 (or 26551), a minimum of 12 hours’ training and

Better education leads to better jobs Many entry level jobs now require education beyond high school.

T

his is an accelerating trend as the world moves increasingly into the digital space and even relatively simple jobs become more complex. A lot of tertiary programmes are single year or even just six months, and give the person a big leap ahead of other candidates for jobs. “We find that employers want proven skills, not just the intention to do the job well,” says Paul Watkins, marketing manager for tertiary education provider Vision College and TrainMe. “For this reason, we have geared our programmes to be very practical and based on industry needs, which we find are changing constantly.”

For lower level programmes, 16 to 19-years-olds can mostly study for free, while older students can access student loans and allowances, meaning that financing the study may not be a big barrier. “Employers don’t train their staff on the job like they used to, with employers seeking proven productivity from day one,” says Watkins. “As a result, we include realworld projects in our web and software programmes, drivers licence and barista in our Level 1 course, and up to 200 hours of centre placement in our Early Childhood programmes. So they don’t learn theory, but demonstrate it.” This is apparent in the changing face of tertiary education across other

providers as well, with the industry having direct involvement in course design. Minister Stephen Joyce wants measurable career outcomes from study

programmes he funds. There is no question that better education leads to better job outcomes and higher incomes.

motoring Toyota’s Camry covers all bases SPECIFICATIONS

My wife and I landed at Sydney Airport, we were in Australia so that I could watch the rock band Fleetwood Mac perform in concert. We left the terminal building and climbed straight into a taxi to get to our hotel. It was a reasonably late model Camry, and I said to the driver that I was surprised his car wasn’t a hybrid – like the many other Camrys whose drivers were plying for trade at the airport. His response was that he had always driven conventionallypowered cars, and that he was reluctant to make a change. And he said the previous Camry he owned had travelled over 400,000km without any engine or transmission problems. That being the case, he purchased another and was expecting it to give him the same length of service. Our trip to Sydney happened not long after I had been driving a base specification Camry – a Camry GL, to be exact, which lands in New Zealand at an entry-level point of $45,790.

Price: Toyota Camry GL, $45,790. Dimensions: Length,4850mm; width, 1825mm; height, 1470mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, frontwheel-drive, 2494cc, 133kW, 231Nm, six-speed automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 9.3sec.

The Camry GL is softly sprung; well, I don’t think the suspension is much firmer in the Sportivo variants but the point I’m trying to make is that even without low profile tyres and sport suspension parameters, the Camry GL is an accomplished handling car, it has poise and balance, greater than what would normally be expected from a mainstream car. And that is what makes Camry, it is a car for the tasks we ask of a large everyday car, but it also has the ingredients which place it in the upmarket class, or something quite aloof in terms of design if you go for the Sportivo models. I’m sure this won’t be my last Camry drive before the Melbourne factories close in 2017, but if it is, it will serve to prove one thing, that being how well Toyota as a manufacturing company can cover all bases with its product line-up. I don’t expect that philosophy will ever change.

TOYOTA CAMRY: Large Australian car at an affordable price.

There are seven new Camry models – four without the hybrid system, three with. And the Camry for 2015 onwards is mostly all-new, it has a fresh new body style, although the floorpan is a carry-over. In many of my recent articles I’ve extolled the importance I place on affordable cars within a manufacturing line-up. The Camry GL is no exception, it doesn’t get a lot of the flash stuff of its stablemates, but it does get everything a buyer would want to make motoring safe and comfortable. Under the bonnet sits a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder engine which Toyota rates at 133kW and 231Nm. These are healthy outputs for a 2494cc engine, and are generous enough to offer

spirited acceleration; the conventional and naturally-aspirated Camry will reach 100km/h from a standstill in 9.3sec, it will also complete an overtaking manoeuvre in 5.5sec (80km/h to 120km/h). Response from beneath the accelerator feels spirited, the engine is a quick revving unit which feels strong. And it’s not always easy to get a big fourcylinder unit to work smoothly, yet Toyota have developed this engine over a long period of time, and it is now at a point where it works effectively in terms of power and efficiency. Toyota also claims a 7.8-litre per 100km (36mpg) combined cycle fuel usage rating which fits well with the test car’s trip computer readout. It

was constantly sitting around 8.8l/100km (32mpg) during testing time, along with a 7/100km (40mpg) figure instantaneously at 100km/h, the engine quite relaxed at 1800rpm at that speed. I took the test car on a burst which encompassed the Gebbies Pass incline. Not only is there significant engine power to haul up the hill quickly, the Camry, as in all generations before it, feels confident underneath and directional through the steering. Providing the grip are high quality and quiet Michelin tyres (215/60 x 16in), I’ve always found them to be an odd compound in a car which is built in Australia, but the reality is they have high grip properties and afford strong feedback to the steering wheel.

Public Notice

Selwyn District Prohibited Fire Season Notice is hearby given that pursuant to Section 22 (2) of the Forest and Rural Fire Act (1977), a PROHIBITED FIRE SEASON is extended over the whole of Selwyn District as from 8am Thursday 3 December 2015 until further notice. During the Prohibited Fire Season, it is an offence to light any fires in the open air. The prohibition does not apply to gas barbeques lit on a property serviced by a high pressure water supply.

Minimise Fire Risk The fire risk in Selwyn is very high. There are a number of steps you can take to reduce the risk of fire starting or spreading on your property: · avoid operating lawn mowers or other machinery during hot weather as sparks can easily ignite in these conditions, and wait until the weather is cooler to mow laws or operate machinery. If you do need to use machinery or a lawn mower, having a source of water nearby for fire firefighting is advisable as a precaution · regularly check and maintain machinery and equipment so it is safe to operate · dispose of ashes from an indoor fire safely in a metal container and use approved incinerators · keep a hose connected that can reach round the house · store firewood and other flammable materials away from the house · keep grass away from under hedges · keep a clear space between your house and buildings and vegetation like trees, shrubs and long grass to act as a fire break. Keep this space watered and green if possible or construct it from non- flammable material like paving stones. · make sure your property number is easy to see and that it has a clear access way four metres wide and high so that fire services can easily access your property if needed Check you have adequate insurance cover for fire - it should include cover for fire damage, fire fighting and public liability insurance. Douglas Marshall PRINCIPAL RURAL FIRE OFFICER 8am Thursday 3 December 2015

Water restrictions introduced in Selwyn Formal mandatory water restrictions have been introduced for residential and commercial properties connected to Selwyn District Council water supplies. Rainfall and associated groundwater levels during 2015 have been much lower than normal. Groundwater levels have not had an opportunity to recharge adequately over winter. Environment Canterbury has restricted groundwater consumption for a number water supplies due to low ground water levels. El Nino conditions are forecast to continue over summer, leading to low rainfall and higher than normal demand for water from households. The water restrictions have been introduced to help sustainably manage demand for water more evenly throughout the day and week, and meet Environment Canterbury requirements. Under the water restrictions: ∙ Watering of lawns is permitted between 9am-4pm and 9pm6am on alternate days only. If your street address number is even you may water only on even numbered days; if your street address number is an odd number you may water only on odd numbered days. For example, if your property number is 2, 34b, or 108 you can water your lawn as needed on the 8, 10, 12 December and so on, during the permitted times. If watering during the daytime we recommend choosing a cooler day to reduce evaporation. ∙ Garden watering is permitted at any time ∙ There is a requirement to decrease demand, especially during peak periods. This means you should only use as much water as you need to, only water during permitted hours and avoid wasting water. More stringent water restrictions could be introduced if drier weather conditions persist and demand for water continues to be high. We thank you for your co-operation.

Home Is Where The Hart Is Nestled amongst scenic surrounds and alpine vistas is this substantial contemporary home that will hold massive appeal. The design of this home was strongly influenced by the stunning alpine environment in which it sits. Every room has its own view of mountains and hills and in 2008 the home won a gold medal in the House of the Year competition. The large open plan living area is centrally located with the kitchen featuring a granite bench, slate floor and macrocarpa breakfast bar. The kitchen opens out to a sunny patio and also flows through to the dining and lounge area which spills out to a second outdoor area. There is a separate lounge. There are 5 double bedrooms, the master has an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe while two additional bathrooms ensure harmonious living on busy mornings. Additional features include a study, a heat pump for year-round comfort, a double sided gas fire, a double garage and a spa pool which allows you take in the magnificent views of the Hutt Mountain Range. This home can also be purchased fully furnished. This property is positioned between Lake Coleridge and the Rakaia River just a short 35 minutes from the services in the alpine town of Methven, one hour’s drive from three ski fields while the Christchurch CBD is just over an 80 minute commute. Our vendors are determined to achieve a result and therefore this alpine home demands your immediate attention. Contact Mike or Stephen for further information.

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

BUILDING A SPEC HOUSE

A house recently built in Selwyn, sold within three weeks with more than one party interested in purchasing the home.

T

he speed at which the house sold was a surprise for Rob Jones, owner of Artisan Homes Canterbury South. His company built the house for clients and while he knew the design was popular, he did not expect the house to sell that fast. Artisan Homes had built the client’s own family home about three years before so they went back to Rob when they decided to complete this build. “They chose the Rapallo design from Artisan Homes’ suite of plans that is on our website and made few changes to the plan, choosing to have a double garage and French doors out from the bedrooms,” informs Rob. “The Rapallo has been extremely popular and one of our most selected designs. It’s well suited to a country block yet works equally well on a suburban section.” “We also built a house to this design on a 10-acre block in Darfield, which led to lots of enquiries from prospective buyers who drove

past and saw the house,” adds Rob. The Rapallo house lends itself to alternative claddings, such as brick or plaster and cedar weatherboarding, and this latest build has a traditional look because of its weatherboard and schist stone features, giving it a striking pose on its corner site. The four-bedroom home normally has three-car garaging and affords plenty of room for a large family. There is space for both toys and boat, while its openness makes it ideal as a family home or for entertaining. Features include: sliders leading out to the yard from all living areas as well as the main and second bedrooms; a large main bedroom located at one end of the house with en suite and walk-in-robe; a fourth bedroom slightly separated from the other bedrooms, making it ideal as a guest room; a separate good-sized laundry and a spacious entryway. Rob said that building of this home went smoothly and that the buyers are delighted to be the lucky ones to own this stylish and

spacious 232-square-metre home. It suggests that building can be feasible if the project is carefully budgeted, managed and the style of home chosen is likely to be popular. “We can change a plan around to suit a client’s requirements and also assist future homeowners in their search for the right building site for positioning of the house to take account of sun and wind direction. If a spec home, the package can be tailored to make the home appealing for those in the market at the time,” explains Rob.

Energy efficient PLANNING

y building or renovating in smarter ways, we can reduce water consumption, keep power bills affordable and preserve the environment for generations to come. If you’re thinking of building, site your house to best utilise the sun. If you’re considering adding onto your house, think about the possibilities of extending on the northern side of your house, where you can enhance the usefulness of outdoor living space as well. All water use has environmental impacts. Making water conservation decisions today helps ensure that there will be ample supplies for the next generation and sets habits that have good long-term economic benefits in metered areas. Old hot water heaters can lose up to 15 per cent of total hot water energy cost, but you can redress that through wrapping the cylinder effectively. Uninsulated hot water pipes also rob the water of heat before it reaches its destination. Pipe insulation is inexpensive and effective in keeping water hot all the way to the tap. An on demand hot water switch circulates water in the pipes until it is hot, saving power and water, and increasing your comfort. Old toilet cisterns are particularly wasteful of water. Modern ones use significantly less. Saving electricity can be as simple as changing the kind of light bulb you’re using. Compact fluorescent light bulbs are more expensive, but they use one quarter the electricity of an incandescent bulb and last 10 times as long. Likewise, appliances have become much more energy efficient. Look for their energy rating

when buying a new fridge or freezer. Insulation is an excellent investment all round, so consider increasing the amount of insulation throughout the house if you’re planning to build or while you’re renovating. It will pay for itself in just a few years and you’ll be more comfortable. It’s common sense to take advantage of the heat from the sun whenever possible. Passive solar design, orienting windows to the north with overhangs, is a no-cost option that can reduce heating costs by 20 to 30 per cent. Passive cooling uses prevailing breezes, shading and natural plantings to keep the home cool all summer long without air conditioning. Active solar hot water heating is a cost-effective alternative to conventional hot water heating that can pay for itself in as few as even years. Advances in technology have improved efficiency and durability of systems considerably. A little preliminary thought on how your new home or addition can improve the way you live, long term, pays for itself very quickly.

Statement walls with tiles

S

till the most common surface used in kitchen, make a dramatic statement in the hub of your home with our handy tile guide. Ceramic Generally cheaper than porcelain, ceramic tiles are not as hard-wearing, so they are best used on walls instead of floors in high traffic areas. Their glazed surface however, offers a diverse range of vibrant colour options to create stunning feature walls or trims. Concrete Concrete tiles are not only budgetfriendly, but are hard-wearing and simply get better with age. Concrete is making a comeback in both bathroom and kitchen design, as is poured concrete. Much more versatile than one would imagine, concrete tiles come in a variety of colours and patterns. Porcelain Also known as vitrified tiles, porcelain are ideal for floors thanks to their durable and more textured finish than other materials. The added benefit of porcelain is that if it’s chipped or worn down, the colour and pattern remains as it’s consistent all the way through. Many modern porcelain tiles convincingly imitate natural materials like stone and timber, which are an affordable alternative to the real thing.

Natural stone While an expensive option for walls and flooring, stone - including granite and limestone - is extremely hardy. Go for classic monochrome marble or opt for the increasing trend of earthy tones for a more modern look. Choose from a wide variety of finishes, such as honed (non-reflective), brushed (textured) and antique flamed (roughly textured finish that resembles flames) and a range of different patterns and shapes. Glass Glass tiles are a particularly popular choice for splashbacks and offer an almost unlimited spectrum of rich colours to choose from. Commonly used in mosaic form, glass tiles create dramatic feature walls customised to your unique style and bound only by your imagination. Alloy Changing the face of mosaics, alloy tiles come in a range of different metals for interior and exterior surfaces. The trend running rampant through interior showrooms to catwalks around the world, metallics are very hot right now. Brass and copper tiles are easy to keep clean. Use either soapy based products that allows a soft patina to develop over time or maintain their high-gloss sheen with liquid polish.

Bisazza

Tiles come in a wide variety of materials, finishes, shapes and sizes to allow you absolute creative licence.
