Videolink medical plan „„ By Tom Doudney A PROPOSED 24-hour medical facility in Rolleston could see doctors at Christchurch Hospital giving instructions to nurses via videolink to provide around-the-clock care for Selwyn residents. And the facility could later be expanded to include other health services. The proposal has come out of discussions between the district council, Selwyn Times Canterbury District Health Board and 266mm x 90mm St John. District councillors Grant Miller Grant Miller

and mayoral candidate Pat McEvedy, who have been representing the district council in the discussions, said they believed the proposal has a strong chance of going ahead. The district council is considering using land it owns next to the new St John Selwyn Central base for the facility. While telemedicine, the remote diagnosis and treatment of patients via videolink and other digital technology, has been used before in Canterbury, this would be the first time the approach had been used to operate an after hours acute service.

Patients could be triaged and assessed before having treatment at the facility or, in more serious cases, being sent on to Christchurch. Cr Miller said a 24-hour medical centre with doctors on site was not feasible in Selwyn as a population of well over 100,000 would be required to sustain it. The telemedicine approach was a viable alternative. “We’re pretty positive at the council that we can make this happen,” he said. “We have a good core of people working on it and we hope to turn it into reality pretty soon.” •Turn to page 4

Tuesday September 13 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

TECHNOLOGY doesn’t slow down for anybody, and as we report on page 1, Selwyn residents could soon be treated by videolink. Reporter Tom Doudney reveals nurses based at a proposed 24-hour clinic in Rolleston will be able to talk to doctors at Christchurch Hospital and that could be via videolink. A proposed 24-hour medical facility in Rolleston would see nurses digitally linked up with doctors at Christchurch Hospital to provide around the clock care for Selwyn residents. District councillors Grant Millar and Pat McEvedy, who is also standing for mayor, have been pushing the council barrow. And congratulations to Lincoln, victors of the Selwyn premier netball title on Saturday. We have the photos on pages 21-22. – Barry Clarke

ROLLESTON’S HEARING HEAR “I was in denial, pure and simple. My family were bringing it up more often with a gentle nudging to “do something about it.” My ability to hear accurately was impacting on my whole life and for what ever reason, I wasn’t convinced that hearing aids would make much difference.

I am not sure that I can do justice in describing Brenna’s approach. Brenna is infinitely professional, kind and understanding. Brenna instantly put me at ease with her friendly nature and lead me through an interview that really exposed my heart and motivation as to why I would want to rectify this increasing inability to participate more fully in my life! Brenna gave me time and patience. She fitted hearing aids and I was overcome by the how much more I could hear.

I am a parent, grandparent and teacher. Conversations were becoming increasingly difficult. I compensated and modified my interactions to cope but I was being robbed on personal enjoyment, on social occasions, family occasions, everyday life.

Ill miss out on doctors’ appointments „„ By Tom Doudney FREE DOCTORS’ visits for under 13-year-olds has led to children with minor ailments taking appointments from those in greater need, a Rolleston doctor says. Rolleston Central Health managing director Dr Philip Schroeder said that the policy, introduced by the Government on July 1 last year, had had a huge impact on general practices in Selwyn and across Canterbury. “We are often seeing all those very well under 13s taking appointments for what effectively are just basic colds for which they never would have been seen in the past,” Dr Schroeder said. “Something I am hearing across all Selwyn practices is that we are finding it very difficult to see those that really need care because the urgent appointments are being taken up by children who are, by and large, relatively well.” Dr Schroeder said that for all the children in the under 13 group that were seen at his practice, probably only one in 10 really needed to be.

Only nine supported it.

CRASH INJURIES A Rolleston woman and a Christchurch man were recovering in Christchurch Hospital yesterday after being involved in a crash at the intersection of Main South Rd and Weedons Ross Rd on Sunday at about 10am. Sergeant Dan Harker said the woman, who was the sole occupant of her car, pulled out onto Main South Rd in front of the man who was on a motor-cycle.

SKATE PARK UPDATED Work on the skate park in Darfield has finally finished. The redevelopment of the skate area at Westview Park has now been completed. New ramps have been added to the skate area, as well as a shade cover.

TIME IS PRECIOUS: Dr Philip Schroeder (left), says free visits for under 13s mean a lot of appointments are being taken by children who don’t need to see a doctor.

Many presented with minor coughs and colds and would have been better off being treated at home. When the practice couldn’t fit in someone who needed an urgent appointment, they were referred to a 24-hour facility in Christchurch. Dr Schroeder, who is chairman of the Canterbury Primary Pandemic Group, said the shortage of urgent appointments times was particularly difficult during the winter when influenza and other viral infections were circulating. Ministry of Health community health group manager Andrew

Inder said the new policy appeared to have been effective at improving access to primary care for children aged under 13. General practice teams could decide how to best manage their patients in ways that worked best for their enrolled population. “For instance, it could mean that children aged under 13 are initially triaged by a nurse, at which point it can be decided whether an appointment with a GP is required,” Mr Inder said. Rolleston resident Jenny Fitzgerald said her adult daughter had found it hard to get an appointment at Rolleston Central Health when she needed

Fundraiser success for Maddie MORE THAN $26,000 was raised for a West Melton girl in need of a kidney transplant. A total of $26,218.10 has been donated to 12-year-old Maddie Collins following a ball held recently for her. Maddie Collins is in need of a kidney transplant and her best hopes of finding a suitable match require her to travel to the United States. The trip is expected to cost $350,000. The ball was held on September 3 and the money was raised from ticket sales, donations and an auction. Fundraising efforts continue with a national mufti day planned for this Friday. West Melton School is joining the fundraising efforts to help ex-pupil Maddie. The event has been put together for schools and busi-

nesses across the country to get involved in. West Melton School principal Sue Jackson said the school had no hesitation in getting involved in ‘Mufti Day for Maddie.’ “We were touched by Maddie and her family when she was a student here. Maddie is such a wonderful girl who has so much to offer. Taking part in this event is the least we can do. “We often have mufti days for good causes. I can’t think of a better one than this,” Mrs Jackson said. The mufti day is a fundraising event held across the country for schools and businesses to help raise the money needed for Maddie to get to the US. •To donate to Maddie visit https://givealittle. co.nz/cause/ givethegiftoflifetomaddie.

is unable to fund building costs for a facility, but are reliant on a joint process for this initiative,” she said. Cr Miller said he hoped it could be up and running within two years. After that, there would be the

potential to base other types of health services such as mental health and radiology services in the building, reviving the concept of a health hub for Rolleston – an idea which had previously been raised by CDHB but which has since stalled.

Cr McEvedy said having after hours care closer at hand would be particularly welcome for older people and children. “You won’t have to go to Riccarton or Bealey Ave for care, hopefully you will have a shorter wait time,” he said.

Frustration over church repairs „„ By Tom Doudney SIX YEARS after the September 2010 earthquake, the Hororata community is still in the dark about when its badly damaged heritage church will be restored. When the 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit, the bell tower of St John’s Anglican Church toppled and fell through the roof. Hororata Community Trust trustee Olive Webb said many in the community had expressed frustration with the lack of visible progress on fixing the church. “After the earthquake this building was surrounded by people from the community, some of whom were regular church goers and some weren’t, who were weeping at the destruction of the church,” she said. “We are constantly asked: ‘What’s the time frame, what’s happening?’ and all we can tell them is that we are waiting on a response from [the Church Property Trustees].” HCT has put a proposal to the Church Property Trust on how they can work together towards restoring the church.

In Brief AREA PLANS The Ellesmere and Malvern Area Plans are up for approval at tomorrow’s district council meeting. The plans, developed in consultation with the community, identify key issues and opportunities for towns within each ward and are meant to encourage sustainable development practises. They will be used to inform future District Plan Review, Long Term Plan and Annual Plan processes. NEW AMBULANCE BASE St John is expecting to open the main office at its new Selwyn Central base in Rolleston in the next two weeks. The office had initially been expected to open by the start of last week but work had taken longer to complete than expected. St John is already operating out of the garage at the base. UNIVERSITY INSURANCE Lincoln University has made an $11 million partial insurance settlement in the ongoing process of resolving its insurance claims arising from damage caused by the September 2010 earthquake. The settlement covers 140 smaller buildings on the university’s Te Waihora campus. A revised campus master plan will consider the reuse and refurbishment of buildings, new buildings where required, and releasing surplus buildings.

News Pub back advertising liquor

Digitise your Selwyn photo

„„ By Tom Doudney THE Hospitality Association of New Zealand has welcomed a “precedent-setting’’ ruling which allows the Prebbleton Tavern to advertise its offlicence alcohol prices to passers-by. The Gilmore family, who own the bar and bottle store, had appealed the Selwyn District Licensing Committee’s decision to add a new condition prohibiting it from advertising alcohol outside the premises when renewing its liquor off-licence last year. In its decision released last week, the Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority ordered the condition be removed. Hospitality Association regional manager Amy McLellan-Minty said it was a very good and sensible decision to overturn the “unjustified” condition. “I’m just really happy for the Gilmores because they can get back to what they have been doing for the past 30 years.” She believed the case would set a precedent for other offlicensed premises which wished to advertise prices outside. The district licensing com-

SELWYN LIBRARIES are inviting residents to find photos from Rolleston’s past and present and have them digitised for display at the Rolleston 150th celebrations. Rolleston Library will host a digitisation day on September 25 from 1-5pm. Selwyn Libraries manager Vicki Carlyon said along with photos from Rolleston’s past, recent images would also be considered for display at the Rolleston 150th celebration in October, “The images will help create a story about Rolleston’s origins and how the town has developed over time,” she said. “These could include photos of local landmarks like schools, major shops and parks, people at work and at play, important events in our history and other images that create a picture of what life was and is like in Rolleston.” People could bring along images, slides and negatives they had at home which would appeal to the wider public so that they could be digitised. People would also need to sign an agreement allowing libraries to keep a copy of images in Selwyn Libraries digital collection for future use. Anyone who would like a digital copy of their image would need to take a USB stick with sufficient memory.

ITS BACK: Prebbleton Tavern manager Shannon Gilmore wasted no time in putting signage for his off-licence back outside following a successful appeal against a Selwyn District Licensing Committee decision. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER mittee’s chairman Al Lawn said that “as with all judicial precedent, the committee will take it into account when considering future alcohol licence applications.” When imposing the condition, the district licensing committee had stated that advertising outside the premises detracted from the amenity of the locality and placed alcohol “in the faces of those who pass by.” However, Mr Gilmore had argued that it wasn’t fair to limit advertising for his off-licence when supermarkets and other alcohol retailers were able to

advertise more freely; and that there was no evidence of harm caused by the signage. In summarising its decision, ARLA found that the condition was unreasonable because the district licensing committee had failed to provide supporting evidence that the signage would increase the risk of alcohol-related harm or detract from the amenity of the locality. Tavern manager Shannon Gilmore said he was ecstatic about the decision. “I’m happy that the process was followed and the right outcome has happened at the

end of the day. Unfortunately, it has been at the cost of our business and our trade,” Mr Gilmore said.

Head girl to lose locks „„ By Devon Bolger LINCOLN HIGH’S head girl Elin Harris will say goodbye to her long locks in the name of charity. Tomorrow Elin and six other students will shave their heads to raise money for the not-forprofit CanTeen organisation. Collectively the students have raised almost $3000 but they hope to get more before the event. CanTeen is an organisation that raises money for and supports young people around the country with cancer. Elin (above) said shaving her head to support CanTeen has been an idea of hers for several years. “This has been something I have wanted to do since I started high school in 2012,” “To me, shaving my head is not only about raising money, but awareness – awareness for all New Zealand teenagers that continue to fight every day,” Elin said. •To donate to Elin go to https://givealittle.co.nz/ fundraiser/elinsheadshave

HEAD TO HEAD: Either the Lincoln High School first XV rugby team (left), or the school’s first XI football team will lose their leg hair tomorrow.

Hair-raising thought of a loss „„ By Devon Bolger FOR THE first time in Lincoln High School history, the first XV rugby team, and first XI football team, will be going head-to-head. Each team has been tasked with trying to raise as much money as possible for the nonprofit CanTeen organisation by September 14. The team that raises the most money gets to wax the losing players’ legs in an event that will be showcased in the school hall at the annual head shaving. The head boy and head girl will also take part. The event is in conjunction with the Lincoln High School’s

‘Doing Good Campaign’. It focuses on the students raising a goal of $20,000 for charities during the year. This event for CanTeen is expected to raise $3000. It will bring the total to $19,000 so far. The football team has recently been crowned the regional first XI champions by defeating Cashmere High School, 2-1. The first XV rugby team have not done so well this season. It’s a battle about more than just losing leg hair; the rugby team desperately want to see the football team knocked down a peg. Rugby captain, Duncan Fin-

layson said losing to the football team is not an option. “We’re all really keen to beat the first XI boys – they’ve had a winning streak that needs to stop now. We’re all really keen to raise awareness and money for a fantastic cause,” Duncan said. Football captain, Mason Stearn is not too worried about the competition the rugby team are bringing. “This is just another opportunity for the first XI boys to claim another win,” Mason said. The idea of waxing their legs was thought up by rugby player Simon Lancaster and both teams

IT SEEMS to me that the winter here in Selwyn this year has been warmer and drier than usual. I’m not a meteorologist though, so I won’t speculate on the causes of this entirely subjective observation. What we know, however, is that scientists agree that our earth’s climate is changing and global emissions are a significant factor in this change. The Government is taking the issue of climate change seriously, which is why we have set an ambitious goal for New Zealand to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030. This will require a massive effort across all sectors of society from local and central Government through to businesses, iwi and communities. We have also announced our intention to ratify the Paris agreement on climate change before the UN’s Framework Convention on

Climate Change conference in November this year. Ratifying this year will formalise New Zealand’s commitment to addressing climate change and help support worldwide momentum towards lowering global emissions. The Paris agreement was finalised in December last year, when 180 countries that contribute 99 per cent of global emissions set reduced emissions targets. Ratifying the agreement early gives our support to the global momentum to implement the agreement and helps ensure we have a strong voice at the table as the details of the agreement are negotiated. Ratifying will also build on the solid work already being done by New Zealanders to reduce our emissions. China and the US, which are jointly responsible for just under 40 per cent of global emissions, have indicated they will ratify this year, as have

Australia and Canada. The Government already has a number of initiatives underway as part of our work programme to address climate change. These actions include: •Reviewing and strengthening the Emissions Trading Scheme to ensure it is fit for purpose and is encouraging emissions reductions and tree planting •Investing millions each year to fund agriculture research to help the primary sector become more efficient and less emissions-intensive •Spending a record $1.2 bil-

lion over three years on public transport and encouraging the uptake of electric vehicles •Increasing the amount of electricity that comes from renewable energy from 80 per cent currently to 90 per cent •And developing measures on energy and fuel efficiency. To help ensure we’re on the right track to reduce emissions and meet our ambitious target, we are also setting up three technical advisory groups covering adaptation, biological emissions and forestry. This is a big global issue and it is important that we get our response right.

Fewer car parks not bad for business Spokes Canterbury chairman Don Babe responds to editor Barry Clarke’s view on the removal of car parking on the main street of Lincoln in last week’s edition You are not the first nor will you be the last to jump to the conclusion that less car parking outside businesses means less customers. This has been researched many times around the world and I am not aware of any results that show business declining when car parking is

moved. The most well-known example is from New York, where business grew by 47 per cent when car parking was removed. I understand that Lincoln is not New York, but similar research has been done in Te Aro in Wellington and Beckenham in Christchurch with results in the same direction, if not of

the same magnitude. I live 5km from Lincoln and feel no desire to go there because there is little chance I will meet anyone I know, despite being in the area for 25 years and raising a family here. The Christmas fete is great because people are milling about and there is a good chance I will meet someone I know. I will not go there to watch cars go by or park. Making the main road more peoplefriendly will have more people in the street so will attract visitors and likely customers. How do businesses think that having two car parks in front of their business will get

more customers? It is likely the car parks are full of long-term parkers so they are completely ineffective. The car park north of the library is a great location and should be duplicated. It supplies a number of car parks and is not far from the main street, probably closer to destinations than on street parking would be. The staff at Selwyn District Council have made good plans to energise Lincoln village, they are to be commended. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you agree with Don Babe’s view? Email tom. doudney@starmedia.kiwi

organisation we were thinking of biblical names. We decided to go into separate rooms and not come out until we had it. But then we both walked out of the rooms at the same time and thought of the same person. Joshua. He was hard working and had strong determination and they are key values we want to install in other young people. Did your time in the army contribute to your idea? It’s fair to say I was one of those kids that I now teach. I was not in a good way, I had left school at 15 and was starting to get into some bad things. Then I joined the army and those guys basically became my second family. They really helped to pull me out of that place and gave me purpose and that kind of thing. They have definitely had an influence on me and my life and that’s what I hope to do for these other kids. What was your time in the army like? Like I said they are like my

Sierra Leone with the army, what was that like? It was horrendous. It was just after the Civil War in 1993 so it was a really unstable time over there. It encouraged me to do more work in other areas. You have also done volunteer work in Vanuatu, can you tell me about that? We bought a property over there when I was a training sergeant. Just loved the people and the place. We wanted to serve the villages with the kids in it. We wanted to take our kids there and show them how other people have to live and show that we can help them, so we went to some villages and volunteered with the people, we took over clothes and supplies and things they need. I think it really changed their perspective on things. Now we might go shopping and my kids will point out things that we could send to Vanuatu. They say: ‘Dad how about we take that over next time.’ It’s really great to see

Brand new village centre and care centre Summerset at Wigram is growing, with our new village centre officially opening this month. The village centre will be the new heart of our retirement village and our residents are looking forward to all it has to offer. The village centre includes; an indoor swimming pool, spa pool, café, bowling green, indoor bowls, pool table, lounges and more. We will also offer rest home and hospital-level care for residents and the wider community in our brand new care centre. To find out more about the living options available contact Anne on 03 741 0872.

It is, it’s something we are currently working on actually. We have partnered up with the Student Volunteer Army to do volunteer work in Vanuatu. Then we plan to open that to kids across Canterbury. They would need to fund themselves, but the plan is to go over for 14 days and help and live in villages so they can understand what life is like and why it is important to help out these people. They really appreciate the work that people do to help and that’s why we do it. So you still work as well? Yes, I’m the Officer Commanding Canterbury Company for the 2/4 RNZIR (Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment). Do you get any spare time? Not really. But I don’t mind.

Chris can you tell me a bit about the Joshua Foundation? Well, it started with the aim to help troubled and at risk youth. Now it is about helping all young people, getting them integrated into and working with their local community better. We do a lot of work with youth all around Canterbury even though we are based in Rolleston. Living out here is close to Burnham Military Camp which is good since I still work in the reserve army. Why did you move to Rolleston? To provide our children with an opportunity to learn how to be self-sustainable with vegetable and home-grown meat and become self-reliant and resourceful with what they have. We live on 0.8ha. We also want to shape the local community and make it a safe place to live and play. As a growing community we all have a responsibility to make Rolleston a safe and desirable place to live and bring up our children. Do you have much to do with clubs in Rolleston and Selwyn? Not at the moment. I’m working a lot so I haven’t had much to do with the community. At the moment a lot of the work we do is focused more in the city but I feel there is a need for an organisation

Pupils get out and about WEST MELTON School pupils have had a busy couple of weeks, including a 29km bike ride. The year 7 and 8 pupils took on the challenge of biking along the Little River Rail Trail from Kaituna to Little River. It involves a 14.5km bike ride each way. Meanwhile, as part of the Environschools programme, pupils also took part in a planting day at Kowhai Sanctuary. The pupils got to see how much the trees they had planted last year had grown. They also did a water study, which

involved catching creatures they found in the water and looking at them through a magnifying glass. West Melton School, in conjunction with the district council, launched their Safe School Travel Plan. Local emergency services also got involved by bringing fire engines, police patrol cars and an ambulance for pupils to look at. Their week was topped off when their kapa haka group performed at the Christchurch Schools’ Cultural Festival.

SINGING: The pupils sung during their kapa haka performance at the Christchurch Schools’ Cultural Festival.

Fire truck rolls out the fun factor „„ By Margot Taylor BROADFIELD resident Nigel Hope says he could have bought a jet ski but instead his fun vehicle purchase was a former Dunedin Fire Service Mack snorkel. The 1982 red and white fire engine rolled back into Dunedin recently for the Special Rigs for Special Kids rally. The five-hour jaunt from Mr Hope’s shed in Broadfield to its former home city was by no means the biggest journey the Mack had been on, he said. “A few years ago, we took it to a truck event in Brisbane. It went on a ship via Japan to get there,” Mr Hope said. “I think the guy that bought it before me was going to use it for hedge pruning, but like all good ideas it didn’t last.’’ The vehicle tow-truck business owner said he could not resist buying the vehicle when he saw it

up the cast who will tell the murder mystery story. It is a comic take on the whodunnits genre. Its plot includes a secluded English country manor house, ominous radio reports of a criminal on the loose, visitors behaving suspiciously, a relative with a unknown past and an unidentified dead body. Year 12 student Anastasia McPherson said she has enjoyed getting to act out her character, Cynthia. “I feel like the best part is act-

Foster Park hosted its first winter sport season with over 600 footballers of all ages taking part in weekend matches. A new LED sports field lighting system was installed in March and is providing good lighting which is cost efficient for evening sports practices and games. Rolleston Men’s Shed have established a building at the Dynes Road end of the park and are using their new home. A new temporary toilet facility has been installed near Broadlands Drive (5 on the map). Permanent toilet facilities will be included in a planned indoor sport complex.

Foster Park is in bloom! 14,500 daffodil bulbs were planted in the autumn by volunteers and Council staff and the daffodils are now starting to bloom at the park. You can view the display, but please don’t pick the flowers – leave them for everyone to enjoy. We are also planning to plant more daffodils – with around another 5,000 to be planted each autumn for the next three years, with help from volunteers.

Children’s playground update The Council recently surveyed 83 Rolleston schoolchildren and invited comments from adults to gather information on what they would like included in a major new playground to be developed at Foster Park opposite the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. Some of the most popular types of play equipment kids wanted to see included a mouse wheel (similar to a large hamster wheel), a big slide, a tree hut fort, a flying fox, swings, a BMX and scooter track and a climbing wall. “The survey results have helped identify what types of activities kids would most like to have at the park. While we may not be able to fit all of the play options into the park we are looking to accommodate as many of the most popular options as we can comfortably fit into the space available,” says John Reid, Major Projects Property Manager, who is overseeing the development of Foster Park. John says the park will be designed as a destination playground which offers a wider range of play options than local neighbourhood play grounds. “We’re aiming to create a very exciting facility for kids that will bring people to the park to enjoy a family outing,” he says.

Netball South Pacific Island Rolleston Samoa Experience October 2016 The team donating netball supplies to Netball Samoa in 2013. Following from our successful team travelling to Samoa in 2013, it was decided to take a second team to Samoa this September (23rd September to 6th October). The team of teenage girls are all connected to the Rolleston Netball Golden Oldies and have been fundraising for the past 18 months, raising over $30,000 to date. As Golden Oldies, we have loved the international tournaments we have attended – Fiji, San Diego and Hobart, and we wanted our girls to experience the same sort of netball fellowship while giving back to the community. We wanted to teach them the basic skills of being generous, working as a team and appreciating what we have. The team of eight girls is aged between 13 and 15 years of age and operates as the iNSPIRE team under our Golden Oldies umbrella. They have been heavily involved in raising the money themselves. They’ve

had to learn to budget, to take minutes, write letters, apply for funding and have learnt skills to enable them to approach local businesses for assistance. The girls have purchased stationery and, along with Christina Brown, a member of the 2013 team, have collected stationery supplies from Rolleston School, Broadfields School and Whitcoulls Hornby, which they will donate to Tufutafoe Primary School. They will stay in a remote village in Savaii, spend time with the school children and teach them netball while also playing a game with them. While at the village – a visit of four days – they will attend a traditional church service (albeit in Samoan!), will help prepare a traditional tuanai (feast) including weaving plates and learning about the protocols of eating a traditional meal on the floor of a fale (house). They will visit a traditional family fale (home), a plantation and experience other cultural lessons.

Amylee Brown Sponsored by Best Water Solutions

B S

The whole team will also work with Netball Samoa in Apia – the girls in their holiday programme, our coaches and umpires with some Netball Samoa personnel. Rolleston Netball Club have donated old uniforms that will be given to Netball Samoa. They will visit a couple of schools in Apia and are hoping to also visit the National Hospital, as a number of our team are also involved in St John as cadets and volunteers. While also enjoying experiencing the wonderful tourist attractions that Samoa has to offer, we are hoping that our aim of “giving back to others and being grateful for all that we have” is paramount. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our families and friends and all the businesses who have supported us with our fundraising events.

NICE PASS: Leesa Morrish receives the ball from teammate Charlene Porima.

WARMER WEATHER is on its way and the Prebbleton Football Club is turning up the competition over the summer with a mixed five-a-side competition which begins next month. The competition has been running since 2004 and is growing in popularity with over 40 teams taking part last summer. “We get a real mix, a lot of non-footballers come and play. We get a good cross-section of the community, young and old from all sporting codes,” said Prebbleton Football Club president Shannon Gilmore. Young members at the club will also have an exciting training programme to look forward to with Canterbury United Dragons player’s taking an eight-week junior coaching clinic which will take place prior to the junior five-a-side games on Tuesdays. The regulars will be returning, however, the club is still looking for more teams to join this year’s league. The club is also on the hunt for keen referees. The league will be spilt into a top and bottom section after the Christmas break with any level of talent able to fight for trophies.

Getting to the root of Canterbury By the time an average Canterbury child turns five, they will have had at least one tooth decayed, extracted or filled. Gabrielle Stuart looked into the problem, and the work local groups are doing to turn it around FOUR-YEAR-OLD Leah Gibbons is proud of her sparkly white teeth. Some of her peers are not so lucky. One in every three children in Christchurch will have problems with their teeth before they start school – a filling needed, or even rotten teeth removed. In the worst cases local dentists have seen, pre-schoolers have had to have all their teeth removed. Some pre-schoolers are already so self-conscious about their teeth, they are afraid to smile. Fizzy and sugary drinks – now often cheaper than buying water – take a share of the blame, as do a lack of regular brushing

BY THE NUMBERS: •One in every three Canterbury children will have problems with their teeth, from cavities to extractions, by the time they start school •The average Canterbury pre-schooler will have problems with one tooth, a Māori child two teeth, and a Pasifika child three •One in every six preschoolers had their dental enrolments cancelled because their family could not be contacted – 1184 children in total. •The CDHB aims to have 95 per cent of preschoolers enrolled in dental services. Last year just 61 per cent were, a drop from 69 per cent in 2014

or missed dental appointments which could have caught problems early. But missing appointments did not mean someone was a bad parent, CDHB community and public health advisory committee member Rochelle Faimalo

said. “A lot of the hubs are open during school hours, which makes it very hard for working parents,” she said. As a busy parent, it was easy to lose track of when children were due for check-ups, she said.

Part of the problem is families falling through the cracks in the dental system. Pre-schoolers are supposed to have free dental check-ups each year, when they are two, three and four, and then when they start school.

Under the current system, families are called three times within the space of a month to remind them of a check-up. But if they don’t respond or can’t be reached within that time, they are cut from the system.

r o o D n e e r G e h t d n i h e B Ooh La La Hairdressing Rolleston’s newest hairdressing salon is a boutique establishment tucked behind the lime green door on Dunns Crossing Road. Experienced senior stylist Amber Meyerhoff decided the best way to work was from home, so has turned one of her rooms into a stunning salon with glamorous touches to ensure her clients feel like they are being treated while she works her magic. She offers all hairdressing services for women, men and children including cuts, colours, perms, blow waves and hair-ups. The hospitality even extends to a cider or beer, coffee or tea as part of the experience.

Because of her handy location and lack of commute time, Amber is happy to work late nights for her clients. All hairdressing services are by appointment only but she says give her a call and she will try her upmost to fit clients in – even last minute ones. Her product range is the Keune So Pure range made from 100% pure plant extracts and is free from parabens, sulphates and ammonia. So whether you want to just have a trim or are looking for a whole new makeover, give Amber a call at Ooh La La Hairdressing.

children’s tooth decay Then unless the family approaches a dentist, the child may completely miss out on check-ups until they start school. In Canterbury, one in every six pre-schoolers had their enrolment in the programme cancelled. That was even worse for Māori or Pasifika children. One in every four pre-schoolers who identified as Māori had their enrolment cancelled, and almost half of Pasifika children. CDHB health board member Jo Kane said the numbers showed the system had been “an epic fail in many areas”. “This model has been around for a long time, and I think it is time now to ask has it made a difference?” she said. The children’s enrolments are being cancelled even though other departments within the CDHB often have up-to-date contact information for those families. Planning and funding project specialist Bridget Lester said they were not allowed to share it between departments, because of privacy laws. That could change next year,

Oral health concerns for Maori and Pasifika children IF THE dental problems for the average child are bad, the problem for Māori and Pasifika children are dire. The average Māori five-yearold will have had problems with at least two teeth, and the average Pasifika child three. That compares with one tooth, on average, for children of other ethnicities. Dallas Hibbs, chief executive as a new “opt out” system is rolled out. Under the new system, families will register their children at birth with a range of health providers, and give permission to have their contact information shared within the services, unless they opt out. Community Dental Service clinical director Martin Lee (above) said it could make a big difference. “I would be very disappointed

of community health provider He Waka Tapu, supported the idea of an opt-out system. He said that needed to start when children enrolled in early childhood education. “Given the ongoing costs to the health system of poor oral health, and the personal costs to individuals with poor oral health – the status quo should not be option,” he said. if we did not see significant changes within two years,” he said. But it will only catch children born or signed up after it is rolled out. In the meantime, hundreds of children could still miss out. Fluoridation has also been raised as an option to try to improve pre-schoolers’ teeth. New legislation which would give district health boards rather than councils the power to decide if water will be fluoridated will come into force in 2018.

Gardening

Capture the colours of spring „„ By Rachel Vogan AS PARTS of the garden leap into life, the heros in my blooming world at the moment are daffodils, tulips, hyacinths and jonquils. I would love to lead you to believe that this is all through careful planning and skill that I have such a plethora from which to choose, but that’s not quite true. The majority of bulbs I am enjoying now were planted by the previous owner. She was a lady who would beaver away in the garden from dawn to dusk, constantly digging plants up and

moving them to another place in the garden to enhance a vista or view. And now, as I get to sit back and reap what she sowed, I think of her often. Yes, I have added my twinkle to a few areas by planting a few hundred bulbs, but the bulk of what I am picking now have been in situ for 20 years or more. Did you know that daffodils can last out of water for up to eight hours before they start to wilt and fade? Even though I have known this for years it always seems mean to make them suffer, so I place them in a bucket of fresh water filled up to their necks.

In the vase

Tulips, hyacinths and daffodil all flower at the same time. If you do not have room in the garden, try them in pots.

Team up these spring beauties with strong, bold foliage to fill out the vase. Go-to ones are bear’s breeches (Acanthus mollis), upright outdoor ferns, variegated flax varieties or some strong stems of colourful willow branches – even red stems of dogwood. Stems of camellias blend in beautifully as well, while branches of berries, like holly, add another textural layer.

VIVID: A bunch of daffodil colours and varieties. The trick to keeping them alive once picked is to change the water every few days and cut the bottom of the stems at the same time. They can last up to a fortnight in a cooler room.

Quick and easy to grow endive

Gazania likes the heat „„ By Tod Palenski IF YOU’RE looking to add some spark to your garden this summer, look no further than gazania. This flame-like plant produces incredibly striking orange, yellow, cream and red flowers and loves hot, dry, sunny and even windy growing conditions. For a perfect planting buddy, partner it with livingstone daisies. These bright coloured

plants thrive in the same conditions as gazania. Because of this, both plants are great for mass planting on dry slopes, bedding, ground cover, edging and in pots. And for the same reasons, gazania and livingstone daises are both perfect to plant now as the weather warms up. They’re especially good to grow if you plan on being out and about or away a bit over the warmer months – once planted, they

require little to no care. Grab your gazania and livingstone daisy plants Make sure the area you choose to plant in is welldrained, rather than hard and wet. Dig a hole and pop a seedling in. Plant them quite close together – about 200mm apart – as they don’t tend to spread far when they grow. In around six to eight weeks your garden should have some extra spark of summer colour.

„„ By Tod Palenski SPRING HAS arrived, which means salad season is just around the corner. And there’s nothing like picking fresh salad ingredients straight out of your garden. I’ve talked a lot about the different salad plants (typically lettuces) – iceberg, baby cos, red, triumph, just to name a few. But for some reason I’ve never mentioned endive in one of these articles. And I’m not really sure why. Endive is a great addition to any salad. I like to partner its fine curled, mid-green leaves with rocket. To my mind, endive is a bit bitter and rocket is a little peppery, together they’re a great combo. What’s equally important, and another reason why I’m surprised I haven’t mentioned endive in the past, is it’s so easy and quick to grow. Unlike most lettuces, it doesn’t need to create a heart in the centre so it’s very quick to produce. Simply pick the leaves off as you need them. To plant, look for a welldrained spot in the garden. If the soil is still a bit wet and cold from

TASTY: Pick the leaves as you need them.

winter, try growing endive in a pot. Just add some good quality potting mix, plant a couple of seedlings around 5cm apart and away you go. Depending on where you are in New Zealand and how warm the soil is yet, it will take around four to six weeks for your endive to be ready to harvest. Remember, you can tell the soil is warming up when you need to start mowing your lawns again. Take a chance on endive. You might just like what you grow!

Taste Study reveals rapid No more coffee weight loss food VEGETARIANS LOSE weight twice as fast as meat eaters, according to a study. It found that the fastest way for dieters to fight the flab was to give up meat products. They constitute more than a third of the average meat eater’s daily calorie intake. In the first month of a diet, they lose on average 900g, while vegetarians’ weight loss is double that at about 1.8kg. The difference is even more noticeable for slimmers who quit meat at the start of a diet – with the first month’s weight loss averaging about 2.3kg. Vegetarians are said to typically be better dieters because the switch away from meat also leads to people embracing a healthier lifestyle. The study found that vegetarians were twice as likely to be gym members as meat eaters and exercise twice as much. The study found vegetarians were also more likely to pick low-fat options at the supermarket than meat eaters. The study found vegetarians

IT’S TOUGH news but according to a new report from The Climate Institute, coffee could be wiped out by 2080. Based on the report’s estimations, if global warming continues at its current rate, rising temperatures will render half the land currently used to farm coffee unsuitable by 2050. Climate change will also see an increase in pests and fungi, which will impact the ability to farm beans at current levels and, by 2080, wild coffee is expected to be wiped from the planet. This date may feel like plenty of cups of coffee away, but as temperatures rise, consumers

were also more likely to pick low-fat options at the supermarket than meat eaters. They are also much more likely to pick low-fat options at the supermarket and tend to shun fast food restaurants – just 12 per cent are users, compared to 39 per cent of meat eaters. The study, involving 1000 people, was carried out by weight loss firm Forza Supplements. Managing director Lee Smith said: “All our research shows that becoming a veggie is a great way

to lose weight. “It’s not that good lean meat is particularly calorific but we find that meat eaters consistently have a higher calorie intake because the meat they eat is often cooked in an unhealthy way. “A grilled chicken thigh is just 135 calories but that shoots up to 290 calories when it is fried by one of the fast food outlets, with another 300 calories if you add fries. That is where all the damage is done.” – Daily Mail

A talent for giving vehicles a lustrous look Few people think of setting up a business in their twenties. It is therefore impressive to learn that a Rolleston local began his own car grooming business at the age of 26. Adam was working as a car groomer for a well-known prestigious car dealership in Christchurch, when he moved to Rolleston and noticed that no car grooming business was based there. Seeing an opportunity, Adam decided to take the plunge and begin his own operation and in March 2013, he opened Sleek and Shine and has been really busy ever since. “Running a business is hard work. While it can be difficult at times, I’m really enjoying it and glad I gave it a go,” explains Adam who says that he loves being his own boss. Adam and his right-hand man Darren, are experienced at grooming cars from new through to vintage, providing a bumper to bumper service for vehicles of any size; whether a small runabout, family saloon, tractor, truck, caravan, camper or wedding car, with classic vehicles a favourite. Adam especially loves the opportunity to carry out a high-end groom on a prize vehicle such as an Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, Ferrari or collectible. No matter what the vehicle it will be looking like new once Adam and Darren have worked their magic as they are passionate about ensuring a high level of service. “We recently groomed the interior of a grader. That was pretty exciting and so different. We never thought we’d be grooming a grader,” laughs Adam. “We’ve

also had a motorised trike.” Adam and Darren take pride and joy in what they do. With attention to detail they are particular about the look of each and every vehicle that gets a Sleek and Shine treatment. Adam admits that his favourite aspect is cutting and polishing with the vehicles having a mirror finish when they leave the premises. “We’ve had customers bring their car in for grooming prior to selling it, and then loving the job so much they decide to keep the vehicle,” says Adam. Sleek and Shine’s basic groom costs $189 for both interior and exterior of a vehicle with The Works (a high-end groom) costing $389. They also sell maintenance packs that contain dashboard reviver, auto glass cleaner, interior cleaner, windscreen washer fluid and a microfibre cloth for $25; All Blacks car seat covers and floor mats; spare tyre covers; wiper blades; portable mobile chargers with a built-in torch for charging cell phones, cameras, or other devices that plug into a USB port. New products are also due in store that offer paint, fabric, leather and glass protection. These will make ideal Christmas gifts as are the Sleek and Shine gift vouchers. Sleek and Shine is located on the Izone side of Rolleston at 855 Jones Road, next door to Jones Road Auto. They are open 9–5, Monday to Friday or Saturday by booking. They can be contacted on 347 4683 or at: adam@sleekandshine.co.nz and have their Facebook page.

I HAD the good fortune recently to listen to a speech from Toyota New Zealand’s managing director, Alistair Davis. The subject was global warming and the effect that is having on our planet. Mr Davis’ address was fascinating and way too comprehensive to detail, but for the fact that the bottom line is as a global population we aren’t doing enough to save our planet from rising sea water levels and other issues surrounding climate change. Toyota as a global vehicle manufacturing operation is well aware of the problems our future generations face, and are amping up the production of more fuel efficient and low emission vehicles, those which are less likely to contribute to the problem greenhouse gas is creating on our weather patterns. There is no silver bullet to the issue without a viable alternative to the internal combustion engine; that being the case, Toyota’s production of hybrid vehicles is reaching new intensity. Because of New Zealand’s tiny appetite for new cars in comparison to the world market, we don’t see the volume of hybrids that are leaving the Toyota factories, but as demand

TOYOTA PRIUS: Major technology boost in new model.

here swells, more and more hybrids are landing; take for example, the release of the new Corolla hybrid which will be evaluated in these columns in a few week’s time. In the interim, this evaluation focuses on the Prius – the car which really started the hybrid revolution, and for 2016/17 a new generation has landed, priced from $47,490 to $54,990. The fourth-generation car shares much of the same basic design and mechanical engineering of its predecessor, but it is a far more advanced car, and the styling cues are fresh – almost futuristic – and designed so that the person who buys Prius will make a statement. The Prius has always had styling a little avant-garde, but new treatment makes it a lot

more radical. Inside, contrasting white plastic trim elements are striking and while it may sound garish, it works well with the purpose of Prius. On that subject, the new Prius is quieter and far more refined than ever before, the level of sophistication has been cranked up a notch or two. It drives quietly, and for all intents and purposes it works much like a standard car. I’ve often said that the Camry is my favourite hybrid but the new Prius is on a par, you just feel so at ease with the system, and even if you aren’t familiar with the Prius concept, the latest iteration will quickly win you over. The dash and console area are new-age, there are a raft of screens and displays, and even though it is a complex car, the

controls are intuitive and easy to locate the display which shows the the inner workings of the hybrid operation is my favourite. And therein lies the ideology of the hybrid operation. It has battery power to activate the electric motor which is initiated in the first instance; however, the petrol engine operates automatically when the electric motor is under load. The 1.8litre petrol engine also provides the generation needed to keep recharging the batteries, as well as some regeneration available on deceleration. It’s a complex process, although in effect it works seamlessly and efficiently, drive is sent to the front wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission. The benefits make a lot of sense when you take into account the fuel usage readouts. Between a long highway drive and a lot of suburban running around the test car recorded a 5.2-litre per 100km (54mpg) average. That’s nowhere near Toyota’s best claim of 3.4l/100km (82mpg) on a combined cycle average but conditions to get usage that friendly would need to be near perfect. In terms of handling, the Prius feels taut, the newcomer has had a shift in battery position so it

• Price – Toyota Prius, $47,490 • Dimensions – Length, 4540mm; width, 1760mm; height, 1475mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, front-wheel-drive, 1798cc, 90kW, 142Nm, CVT. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 11sec • Fuel usage – 3.4l/100km

feels less bulky at the rear, and the ride isn’t as harsh as I remember Prius to be. The spring and damper rates are firmish but not hard, and that relates to positive body balance in a corner along with realistic steering feel. In the wider scheme of things, other manufacturers have only dabbled with hybrid production while Toyota is forever expanding the number of vehicles available in hybrid form. The Prius sets an example as to how it should work effectively. Toyota in New Zealand recognise the importance of Prius in our market, even to the extent of importing pre-owned plug-in (electric-only) Prius through the Signature Class operation. It’s there for those who like the idea of what the Prius represents but who don’t relate to the idea of still relying on petrol as the main form of propulsion.

Why choose Sam Broughton for Mayor?

WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO AT SAMFORMAYOR.CO.NZ/THE-VIDEO

What local people are saying about Sam Broughton

“I’ve found Sam great. We can approach him, his communication is good, and he listens to what we want. And we seem to get our results... It’s about staying in touch and keeping your finger on the pulse... I want a Mayor that can get along with everybody and can make Selwyn be Selwyn and bring people together.”

“I am a person who works with all sides, listens to relevant arguments, and then makes decisions collaboratively with others as we work to strengthen one another. I am investing my prime years into serving our community, and am excited about supporting individuals and communities to reach their potential. I get really annoyed when people are made to fight for things that are common sense. Council should be an enabler, supporting people to look after their families and their community. I will continue to drive Selwyn District Council to balance the responsibility of caring for one another and our environment, while empowering others to get things done efficiently. Selwyn is the best place in NZ to live, bring up a family, work, enjoy the outdoors, and grow old. As a district we need to continue to look towards the future, and the possibilities that lie ahead. We need to work together and acknowledge that when something is good in one part of Selwyn, it’s good for all of us. There is a reason Selwyn is growing so fast. It’s because there is no better place to be!”

PADDY

BEV “Sam is someone who gets along with people of all ages which is important. Young people don’t want to feel alienated, this is where they live. Old people have put in their years here and want somebody who will represent their interests, who listens and understands what their situation might be, Sam does that... When I look at Selwyn I think we are in for change and the kind of energy that Sam will bring will be invaluable.”

PROVEN LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE • Six years of excellent results on Selwyn District Council • Chair of Coleridge Habitat Enhancement Trust • Board of Trustees that established a new school in Rolleston • Successful Entrepreneur and Businessman • Excellent ability to form strong teams that work together • Mentor to 100s of young people over 15 years of local youth work

PROVEN LEADERSHIP CHARACTER • Integrity • Reliable • Hard working • Co-operative • Patient • Serves others • Committed long-term

PROVEN LEADERSHIP SKILLS • Brings people together to get things done • Big picture focus • Listens to all sides • Humility to change views as information grows • Asks relevant questions • Committed to lifelong learning

LAURA “As new arrivals to the district we have felt really welcomed here by Sam... He is really supportive of both old and new residents which is really good for a growing district like Selwyn.. He has helped us get funding for our play group and is great with families.”

MIKE “I’ve known Sam for 12 years now. Started off at youth group with me and my friends - we’d go along and have a blast. Four years ago Sam was our wedding celebrant for Laura’s and my wedding. I really care for my family and I want to make sure our water supply is nice and clean and constant, and our roads are safe. I think Sam’s commitment to the area and his enthusiasm is what we really need.”

CAMPBELL “I think the council needs a fresh start and fresh leadership. I think Sam will be the man. I have seen Sam go way beyond what his job required, he did the extra work that didn’t have to be done but he chose to get it done. I think he will bring that same drive and dedication to his role as Mayor.”

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

Rolleston lifestyle village under construction A new lifestyle village for people over 55 is currently under construction in Rolleston and is the first aged care facility to be constructed in the area. Rolleston’s 150 year history will be reflected in the village, which is named after William Rolleston’s wife, Mary Brittan who was a political force in herself, as a local politician and community leader. Built by Mike Greer Homes, the Mary Brittan Lifestyle Village will be different from other retirement villages. Rather than purchasing a licence to occupy where a quarter of the resale figure is lost in deferred management fees, owners will have freehold titles which can be gifted or mortgaged. The facility will also offer extras such as emergency call buttons in each unit, the potential for 24 hour care when needed, and a site manager who will take care of refuse collection, quarterly window washing and maintenance inside a unit if required. While at least one resident in a house will need to be over 55 years, there will be flexibility for residents who want to travel knowing their home is secure and the grounds maintained. Mike Greer Homes has built extensively in the area. The company noted that while the Rolleston community has become significant, there was nowhere for older people who wished to downsize or for farming people coming off the farm and into a community. Mike Greer Homes are the only providers in the South Island of a facility of this type with just two similar

facilities in the North Island. The Mary Brittan Lifestyle Village will be sister to Barton Fields village in Lincoln, which is also historically linked to its community, with street names such as Clydesdale Way reflecting the original Barton farm. “The average age of those moving into Barton Fields Lifestyle Village is between 66 and 67 years. Many are still active and want to come and go from their property yet still have the support of neighbours, and a complex that is looked after,” explains Brendon Hill from Mary Brittan Lifestyle Village Limited. The Mary Brittan units will sell from $400,000 for a 115 square metre duplex unit. They will have open plan living with kitchen, dining and lounge spaces, two bedrooms, toilet, separate bathroom, ensuite and good sized single garage with laundry, as well as a courtyard and garden around the unit. “Stage two at Barton Fields Lifestyle Village has already been released and stage three is not far away,” explains Brendon. “At the Mary Brittan Lifestyle Village, the internal roads are completed with a show home under construction and due to open early October. Other units will follow.” The Mary Brittan Lifestyle Village is accessed by Mary Brittan Road, at 23 Lowes Road and is a 500 metre stroll from Rolleston town centre.

To learn more about the Mary Brittan Lifestyle Village, call Hamish Gemmell on: 347 0212, email: hamish@mikegreerhomes.co.nz or call into the Mike Greer Homes office in Rolleston.

Showhomes There are many things to think about when you’re considering building a new home. Browsing showhomes is a fantastic way to get you thinking about practicalities, needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here are a few considerations to help spark your planning process.

All the benefits, none of the stress.

W

a home that will be affordable to run. Interior decor is a really exciting part of your project. This is where showhomes can really help you get to know current trends, colours, beautiful furnishings and furniture. Collect home magazines as well and make up a folder of interior decors you would love to emulate. Also pause to give thought to architectural components inside. Do you like a raised ceiling? What kind of finishing do top homes use and which styles are you are drawn to? Heating is also a consideration. Have a look at what showhomes are offering. Kitchens form the heart of the house. Showhomes give you insight into the latest styles, materials and storage facilities available. Bathrooms are another big component. They need to be as luxurious as you can make them, so start dreaming.

hat is your exterior style? What kind of homes do you like? Edgy and contemporary, classic elegance, country lodge? Look around and take a mental note of what you are drawn to most. What kind of exterior materials do you like? Would a brick home suit you, or a modern material board? Once you’ve worked out the look you like, research what materials are available and find out about their durability. How will you use your house? Do you do a lot of entertaining? It’s important to most people to have good indoor/outdoor flow and attractive, sheltered outdoor living. Try and imagine your new home in various seasons. Landscaping will be an important part of your project. Look around at other homes and showhomes and consider what you like and don’t like. Are you a structured formal garden type or do you like a contemporary native style? Start collecting photos from magazines of gardens you admire. Sustainability and future-proofing aren’t just buzzwords anymore. It’s very important for your new home to be designed to be environmentally friendly and to take full advantage of natural attributes such as solar energy.
