Disgust over cattle grazing at Coes Ford „„ By Tom Doudney COWS GRAZING up to 10m from the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River on public recreation land at Coes Ford were quickly moved on by the district council the day after a Selwyn Huts resident posted photos on Facebook. Steve Curtis was disappointed to spot about 30 to 40 cows in the reserve while driving past. The reserve had been leased for grazing by the district council.

Mr Curtis took photos which he posted to both the district council and Environment Canterbury Facebook pages. He said while the cows weren’t in the river, the fence between them and the water was only 10m away from it. “With that amount of cattle in there and all their crap so close to the river, it wouldn’t matter if they were standing in the river or not, it’s going to seep in there,” he said. •Turn to page 5

THE BRIGHT SIDE: Election results may have cut short her mayoralty ambitions and brought the curtain down on nine years at the district council table but former deputy mayor Sarah Walters isn’t one to be bitter. Reporter Tom Doudney caught up with Mrs Walters to find out what might be next for her and get her views on the challenges new mayor Sam Broughton will face. •Read more on pages 8 and 9.

Tuesday October 18 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

SARAH WALTERS put all of her political eggs into one basket in the local body elections, standing only for mayor, and not also for a seat at the council table. History now shows Sam Broughton will lead the district, and Walters, a three time councillor and the last two of those as deputy mayor, disappears from the local political scene for this term anyway. Today on pages 8-9, reporter Tom Doudney talks to Walters about her thoughts on Broughton’s win and how the 35-year-old first-time mayor will handle the big job, issues the district faces and, of course, what the future holds for herself. The wet spring won’t have any tangible impact on the looming water problem for farmers this summer (see page 3). And some may not even get access to irrigation, experts say. –Barry Clarke

Tough times loom had to start really early,” Dr Davoren said. However, the low groundwater levels would still mean there would be farmers with no access to irrigation this season. Greendale farmer Earl Worsfold said low groundwater levels would mean being restricted to dryland farming this season. This would halve his wheat crop and potential income, while his operating costs would remain almost the same, making for a challenging year ahead. The lack of irrigation had meant “making some early decisions with the cropping rotations and taking some crops

„„ By Tom Doudney A WET start to spring has bought irrigating farmers some time but will ultimately make no significant difference to groundwater levels. HydroServices managing director Dr Tony Davoren said recent rain hadn’t been enough to change the groundwater situation but had helped irrigators conserve water. “We have been getting enough rain in that latter part of September and early part of October to not have to irrigate, so we are in a way conserving some groundwater for later in the season really, so we haven’t

out of the mix for the spring options because there is no point in putting in something that’s not going to grow,” he said. “It’s back to basics I suppose and just trying to minimise costs. Personally, I’m probably going to do a little bit of off-farm work and maybe just drive a tractor for a contractor just to sort of make ends meat.” Low commodity prices were also putting the squeeze on farmers, Mr Worsfold said. Dr Davoren said among the most affected farmers in Selwyn would be the roughly 130 on adaptive management water consents, meaning they were granted when groundwater zones were considered fully al-

located and holders could only take water when levels were high. “Almost all of those adaptive management consents have zero water this summer,” he said. For other farmers things were looking a bit less dire. “We have gone a month without having to really irrigate,” Dr Davoren said. “That’s really valuable, we are a month into the growing season now without having to turn those taps on so to speak. “If we can go another two or three weeks with really low demand for irrigation, then we are a quarter to a third of the way through the growing season.”

STARTING OVER: Wednesday was the first day at a new campus for 165 Lincoln Primary School pupils in years 0-2, along with 10 teachers and support staff. While everyone did start the new term on the Monday, these children went on field trips to Ferrymead and the Antarctic Centre. While the children were on these outings, some of their teachers along with parents and other staff were working hard to unpack at the newly established junior campus site at 24 Edwards St. The need to relocate to the site, a former Environment Canterbury office owned by the district council, has been driven by the school’s growing roll which has reached 579.

In Brief TREE HITS CAR A Rolleston woman was taken to Christchurch Hospital with serious injuries yesterday after her car was hit by a tree which fell over in strong wind. The woman was travelling on State Highway 1, near the Waterholes Rd intersection, when the accident happened at about 7.20am. The driver of another car involved in the accident was uninjured but their car received minor damage. Investigations to determine all the details of the crash were continuing. MAIL THEFTS A woman accused of committing a spate of rural mail thefts has been banned from going to Selwyn or Waimakariri while she is on bail on remand. Anna Leigh Hunter, 34, was remanded without plea until November 1 at the Christchurch District Court yesterday. Police are considering whether to lay another charge. Police have recovered most of the missing mail, which they say Hunter stole from across Canterbury.

The show, which was part of a series of events over the weekend, included historic working displays such as shearing, log loading, saw milling and tractor pulling; locomotives on display; vintage and classic cars and other machinery; along with other entertainment. The first annual CultureFest, celebrating Selwyn’s diverse cultures was also held in conjunction with the show at the same location on the corner of Jones Rd and Hoskyns Rd. About 10,000 people are estimated to have joined in the celebrations. PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY IN TOW: Mark Holaway, with Anya Holaway, driving a 1/3rd scale Scenic Showman locomotive around.

Piping ‘rock star’ for games THE HORORATA Highland Games chieftain Kyle Warren is somewhat of a piping rock star. Born in Scotland, Mr Warren immigrated to Australia at the end of 2014. He has released two piping albums with KRL records and also toured world-wide with the Red Hot Chilli Pipers performing their unique mix of bagpipes and rock music – ‘Bagrock’. Mr Warren (above) more recently recorded pipes on the Disney Pixar Oscar winning movie Brave. He said he was looking forward to his role at Hororata. “I have been to many Highland Games around the world and am

honoured to have been invited to be chieftain at Hororata,” he said. Mr Warren has made a career out of piping and is a sort after piping tutor around the world; currently teaching at the Scotch College Melbourne. While pipe major of the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland, he performed with some of the biggest names in traditional music. This year, the Hororata Highland Games has introduced a new pipe band competition.

Disgust over cattle grazing at Coes Ford •From page 1 “The Selwyn itself, just down from Coes Ford, has been a disgusting looking green river for a long time and just to add to the problem with cattle only a few metres away, I just thought it was disgusting.” Mr Curtis said the incident was particularly poor with the focus which had been on the state of the river in recent times

and because at other times people often used the area where the cows were fenced in for picnicking. ECan principle resource management adviser Richard Purdon said grazing cows on the river’s edge would require a resource consent on the land upstream of Coes Ford and downstream it would be a prohibited activity for which no consent could be

granted. “We are very pleased that the Selwyn District Council acted so promptly to remove the cows immediately and deal with the lease to prevent this from occurring again and have indicated this to them,” Mr Purdon said. Last week cows were filmed grazing on ECan land leased by the New Zealand Transport Agency on the edge

of the Otukaikino Creek in Christchurch. ECan said the land had been accessed by a farmer without NZTA’s consent. The district council did not respond to questions from the Selwyn Times. •HAVE YOUR SAY: How do you feel about cows being grazed at Coes Ford? Send your view to tom.doudney@ starmedia.kiwi

CORRECTION In last week’s election coverage, the Selwyn Times incorrectly referred to Rosalie Snoyink as a candidate for Environment Canterbury’s Mid Canterbury constituency. In fact the candidate was Nicky Snoyink. The Selwyn Times apologises for the error. GARDEN WASTE Malvern and Ellesmere residents will have the opportunity to dispose of garden waste at community garden waste days to be held in their areas over the next few weeks. The first day is at Hawkins Pit, on Cullens Rd, on October 29, 10am4pm. The Ellesmere day is on November 19, 10am-4pm, at Cemetery Pit, on Southbridge Leeston Rd, between 10am and 4pm. It costs $5 per car, $10 per ute or single axle trailer or $15 per twin axle trailer to dispose of garden waste at these days. Payment is cash only, with proceeds from the Malvern day donated to the Malvern Lions Club and proceeds from the Ellesmere day to the Ellesmere Heritage Park. General rubbish, soil, flax, cabbage tree leaves, trees or branches over 10cm in diameter can’t be disposed of through this service.

TRULY LOCAL & PROUD OF IT

Its an exciting time to be part of the fabric of Rolleston and the wider Canterbury and Selwyn regions. We are growing and the 150th Birthday celebrations this past weekend were testament to the strength and confidence that exists here and now.

Brenna Sincock Hearing is proud to be part of this community and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to come out to the celebrations. Thank you to all the people who came and had a chat to us at our stand and made us feel so welcome. It was a busy weekend for Brenna Sincock Hearing! The Canterbury Home Show at Horncastle Arena was a huge success, as was the Ellesmere A&P Show. “My point of difference in audiology and hearing health is that I bring all the experience of the bigger companies, but I take a more personal approach,” says Brenna.

“One can’t take a “cookie cutter” approach to hearing, it requires empathy and taking considerable time listening to customers for them to get the most out of their hearing aids.” “Going to these local shows and events is important to me. I value the conversations and being able to share and promote not only my business, but my passion for hearing well and the unmeasurable impact this can have on quality of life.” Brenna Sincock Hearing is Rolleston’s only full-time and locally owned hearing aid clinic. With the commitment to the wider area, Brenna does regular clinics in Leeston, Darfield and now Lincoln. Determined to provide a one stop shop for all audiology needs. Her personal approach and her vast experience in the profession make her the audiologist of choice in the area. “I have been thrilled with the number of people who have “switched” and chosen to

Faye Leathwick AKA HearOine

have me as their personal audiologist,” says Brenna. “It’s a vote of confidence from locals and confirmation that Rolleston needed my expertise.”

Speedway to open after major maintenance work „„ By Tom Doudney AFTER MORE than a year without racing, the fast cars and their fans are finally set to return to Leeston’s Ellesmere Speedway. The track’s grand reopening and first meeting of the season will held be on Sunday. The raceway’s redevelopment has taken more than a year and cost about $200,000 – although that figure would be much higher if weren’t for the commitment of the raceway’s managing committee and the wider community. Ellesmere Speedway promo-

tions secretary Bridget Roxburgh said about 11 committee members had spent probably more than 1000 hours working on the track every Sunday since work began in June last year. “All the hours were volunteer, our committee and community have been really generous with providing equipment and we have got engineers and builders on our committee,” she said. She estimated that if it weren’t for the volunteer work and community assistance, the redevelopment would have cost between $1 million and $1.5 million.

NEW AND IMPROVED: Ellesmere Speedway will hold its first meeting in more than a year on Sunday after being redevelopment.

The track, which was built in 1981, has had a concrete wall, catchment fence, new gates and control tower put in, and the

embankment has been built up. Mrs Roxburgh said the redevelopment would provide better views for spectators and allow the track to comply with new health and safety standards. Mrs Roxburgh said being unable to use the track for racing last season had been financially difficult and the length of its closure was not originally planned. “Half of the concrete partitions were donated from the Timaru speedway when they closed down, which gave us the motivation to start,” she said.

“We were going to do half, then race, and then do half the next off season but we decided to keep going because we got funding from the New Zealand Community Trust.” The meeting on Sunday will include TQs, V8 modifieds, midget sprintcars, quarter midgets, six-cylinder, six-shooter, motocross, production saloons and modified sprints.

Life after council for former Two weeks ago, Sarah Walters was Selwyn’s deputy mayor and a leading contender for the district’s mayoralty – now she is figuring out life after the district council. She spoke to Tom Doudney about the election, her thoughts on new mayor Sam Broughton and the achievement she is most proud of

SMITH & BOSTON Prebbleton Village | Christchurch Ph: 03 349 5646 www.smithandboston.co.nz

How did you feel when you found out the election result? My instant feeling when I got told was ‘oh my god, I have let people down’ because I had so many wonderful messages of support and I know that people were really backing me to be there. I was ready for a change and whether it was up or whether it was out I left that up to the people of Selwyn to decide and they have decided, so I’m not going to be bitter or anything about it. How do you think Sam Broughton will go as mayor? I think he will bring a very different style, it will definitely be his own style because that’s

BOWING OUT: For the first time in nine years, Sarah Walters won’t be involved in decision-making at the district council table. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

the kind of guy Sam is and I think he will do a good job. How would you describe his style? Pretty casual and relaxed. He is a very personable and relaxed person, I think people will enjoy that element of his mayoralty. I suppose there may be some that find him too casual for what they expect the

role to be but that is up to Sam – he has got the job and he will make it his own. What sort of challenges do you think he will face as a new mayor leading a new council? I think he has got quite a steep learning curve because there are a lot of aspects of the role that he hasn’t been in-

volved in to date. I don’t think it will be an issue for him but he will have a lot to learn. What do you see as some of the big issues that the new council needs to get on top of? The council has been really good at doing the infrastructure side of things but we haven’t been so good at creating the social infrastructure and building the community and it’s not just a council role but it is a council role to make sure that it happens. So what’s next for Sarah Walters? My daughters have said I can have a week’s gardening leave and then I have got to find a job to keep them in the style they have become accustomed to. As to what the next role is I don’t have anything in particular in mind. I have enjoyed being Selwyn’s transport portfolio holder for the last three years and I have a strong interest in transportrelated issues so if there was something in that sphere that would be great. So I hope to be a bit fussy about what I do but in the end it might just come down to putting food on the table.

Sarah Walters

Maronan Road, Tinwald, Ashburton

deputy mayor What about politics? I’ve never been particularly drawn to central government politics. I know that’s where the big decisions are made but it just seems so much more brutal and so much harder to make a difference. Before you started on council, what were you doing? I was working part-time as an administration assistant. How did you first get on to council without having a public profile at the time? I stood for the council in 2007 and it took me a long time to decide that I had something worthwhile to offer. But I have got great kids, they were seven and nine at the time, and I was worried about the decisions that would be made for their future and I only had to look around and see we had so many fantastic kids in our district and I wanted to be there as a voice for their futures. So that was my original motivation and I was quite nervous because I thought ‘well, I’m nothing special’ but in the end I decided that there was nobody there like me and that was the best thing I could bring. My first foray was sending an email to the then Selwyn

STEPPING UP: Speaking at public events and openings were part of Sarah Walters’ role as deputy mayor.

Times reporter which said “campaign on a bike? She must be mad” and that was my subject line and then I went on in the email “well, probably, but I’m going to do it anyway.” The reporter came and did an interview and that went into the paper and I did get out on my bike. Out of all the things you have had a hand in in your nine years on council, is there anything in particular you are quite proud of? I know that one thing wouldn’t have happened without me, although it obviously wasn’t just me, was the building of the Selwyn

9

Aquatic Centre and getting the improvements to district pools that came out of getting the Selwyn Aquatic Strategy through. It was leading up to the 2010 election and there was a lot of controversy, which obviously local papers pick up on and make a bigger deal than it really is, and there was an unwillingness from people around the council table to step up and take on that role. They needed someone to take on the sports and recreation portfolio which meant they were taking on the aquatic centre and I took on that role and in doing that I thought ‘this is important enough for

me to put my job on the line.’ Although I’m not a swimmer myself I did recognise what having the Selwyn Aquatic Centre would bring to the community and fortunately the Selwyn community rewarded me for that and I got reelected on a campaign budget of $87. No matter where my future life goes I have always thought I can be quietly proud of that. Anything you’d like to say to sign off, Sarah? As a person who is not going to have a public profile any more, one of the really big things for me has been the support I have got from people and I think it has helped me be in a good head space for stepping out of the council as well because I had so many messages of support and phone calls leading up the election and post the election. I’m glad for what I have been able to achieve, I’m sad about what I am not going to be able to achieve in the future but I’m okay with where things are at because of the support I have had from my family. It has made a big difference just having that support because I think I probably would have been a bit of a mess otherwise.

MidlandPort officially opened LYTTELTON PORT of Christchurch celebrated its new ‘inland port’ at Rolleston with an official opening ceremony on Friday. Selwyn MP Amy Adams cut the ribbon at the opening of MidlandPort, which began operating in June. The facility was built to handle container freight travelling between Lyttelton and other South Island locations and to future-proof the port company’s transport connections for Canterbury’s trade growth. It is one of two inland ports in Rolleston, with the Port of Tauranga having opened MetroPort in the Izone business park last year. LPC chairman Trevor Burt said MidlandPort saved a journey to Lyttelton for customers working with the eight shipping services and 14 shipping lines that visited the port. “It is strategically positioned at the intersection of major transport routes, with rail access to all points west and south of Rolleston,” Mr Burt said. “It also services the increasing productivity from the Canterbury Plains. Irrigation is boosting exports such as dry

and refrigerated dairy, frozen meat and vegetables. “In central Canterbury, 60,000 hectares of mostly dryland farms will be transformed by the Central Plains Irrigation Scheme. That will increase agricultural output by about $264 million a year.” Mr Burt said the facility was also improving travel time for freight transport and helping reduce road congestion. “Each round trip rail service takes up to 80 truck trips off our roads. This is a positive step as our city focuses on improving transport efficiency,” he said. “Already we have welcomed major customers such as Westland Milk Products and The Warehouse on board. We are managing hundreds of containers here every week and volumes have tripled since we opened.” MidlandPort was a vital part of LPC’s planning to be ready for a forecast 50 per cent increase in exports and imports in the next nine years. “As trade grows so do the size of the cargo vessels. We must be ready to accommodate bigger ships that will carry more cargo,”

Your Local Views

SELWYN TIMES HAVE YOUR SAY: Email us your views on chlorination and businesses operating without consent –tom.doudney@starmedia.kiwi

Cost of safe drinking water HororataAcheron water supply committee chairman Gavin King writes about the benefits of chlorinating water To chlorinate or not to chlorinate our water supplies. When asking people where their water comes from, sometimes the answer is “out of the tap.” It’s got to get in the tap before it comes out. I have been involved with the Hororata-Acheron water supply for many years, both as a user of the water and, since 1986, on the water supply committee and, in recent years, chairman. The Hororata-Acheron water supply delivers water to a wide area from the Acheron River, east of Lake Coleridge, to the Rakaia River and down to Ardlui Rd and to the true right of the Selwyn River. We supply Terrace Downs and Hororata Village. It was built in 1981/82 to replace ageing water races and deliver water to farms and rural houses and villages. In those days, the Government subsidised the build. Off-farm

build cost was paid by the Government and users – 50/50. Also on-farm build cost was paid 50 per cent by the Government and 50 per cent by farmers. Today you would not get a cent from the Government. The people at the time were wise, proceeding with the build when they did. Initially, the water supply was chlorinated and this was done for health reasons, mainly to kill any E. coli and bad bacteria that might have been floating around in the water. Over the early years, people complained about the chlorine taste and also some farmers said livestock would not drink it. My opinion is livestock drink when they are thirsty, chlorine or no chlorine. In the late 1980s, the squeaky wheel got the better of the committee and we installed UV filter treatment in the water supply and turned the chlorinators off. That worked well, we hardly ever tested the water – people used

the water and did not complain. The livestock were happy, they complained when there was no water. The Hororata-Acheron water supply is administered by the district council. Since about 2012, the district council has been testing the water regularly for E. coli. Occasionally E. coli was found and then a boil water notice would be sent out to everyone at a cost of $1800 each time. This happened several times. Because of the cost of boil water notices and the possibility of people becoming ill, we have installed new chlorinators. Since installing chlorinators we have not had a positive E. coli reading. What we are saving on the boil water notices has paid for the chlorinators, the water tastes good and the livestock drink it without any complaint. It would be good to not add anything to the water, but the reality is there is a risk of something happening like in Havelock North recently. We need to keep our water drinkable with no risk of illness. We owe this to our ratepayers and the public. The chlorinators are here to stay. Hororata-Acheron water is excellent and very drinkable.

Hamptons Rd residents Rod and Glenys Gard’ner respond to the recent granting of resource consent to Paul’s Excavation Services for a contractors’ yard on Leadleys Rd (pictured) after the company had operated at the site for several years without consent   As someone who has resided in the Selwyn district for the past 45 years, I am dismayed at the decision of the district council in granting permission for this contractor to undertake his activities. This gripe is not against Mr Paul but the district council, who have displayed as much backbone as a jellyfish in back tracking with this consent. They couldn’t even make the decision themselves but had to hide behind an independent

commissioner to do their job for them. As residents, we cannot subdivide our property, even if we wanted to. Yet it seems that it is possible to start up an industrial activity on rural land and then, over time, it will be acceptable. Already recently we have seen a transport business operating from a property in the area; another, a drainlayer who has commenced operations out of another property, certainly spread over more than 4000 sq m; and now we have a young guy who wants to set up a motocross track. I feel for  the residents of Leadleys Rd. Seems there is one rule for the industry in Selwyn and another for the residents. I would like the district council to respond and to outline what protection rural landowners have from the spread of these types of activity.

Rapid growth in Rolleston Help the SPCA LAST WEEKEND it was great to be involved in the Rolleston 150th celebrations and to see the way the community got involved and enjoyed the various activities that took place. Rolleston’s origins date back to 1866 when the Christchurch to Rolleston railway line was opened as part of the Great Southern Railway, which would link Christchurch with Rakaia and then eventually Timaru and Dunedin. By the early 1900s, as well as a railway station, Rolleston boasted a hotel, a school and a blacksmith’s shop with public saleyards to service the population of under 100. Fast forward to today and Rolleston’s population has grown rapidly during the past 15 years from 1974 in 2001 to 9555 at the 2013 census. The current estimate is around 14,000. This sudden expansion, particularly with a lot of families with school-aged children moving into the area, has meant significant recent investment by the Government in new schools. When I became the local MP in 2008, Rolleston School was

Amy Adams Selwyn MP

the only primary school. Now Rolleston’s fifth primary school, Lemonwood Grove School, is preparing to open in February, as is Rolleston’s first secondary school, Rolleston College. Rolleston’s growth in recent times has given it the advantage of being able to be one of the first ‘fully-fibred’ towns (along with Lincoln) in New Zealand where all businesses, schools and residents have access to ultra-fast broadband. To help keep up with the demand for affordable housing and land in Selwyn, especially in Rolleston, the Government signed a housing accord with the district council in December last year. The accord allows the district council to recommend special housing areas to the Minister for Building and Housing and allow these developments to be fast-tracked through the consenting process to provide

additional housing supply. As well as being in demand for residential housing, Rolleston is fast becoming an important industrial and logistics hub for the wider region and is ideally located to fulfil this role. Developments such as i-Zone, I-Port, Midland Port and MetroPort are all contributing to Rolleston’s rapid growth as a sought after location for businesses in many sectors. This only looks set to continue as the Central Plains Water scheme will transform local agricultural productivity and Rolleston will be in an ideal position to cater for the resulting increase in freight requirements, given its strategic position next to the railway and State Highway 1. Rolleston is certainly coming of age and fulfilling the potential that the early pioneers believed it had.

Lincoln High School student Liana Hills writes about the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the importance of the work they do. Our local SPCA is a non-profit animal welfare organisation located in Hornby that focuses on helping animals who have been maltreated. They also assist in finding animals’ homes and prevent any form of cruelty to animals. The SPCA rescue, rehabilitate, reunite, rehome and educate. Canterbury SPCA not only handles inquiries related to animals’ needing assistance, they also have animals that stay and receive care when their owners are away. The Canterbury SPCA works alongside the Hornby Vet Clinic and has an animal ambulance available to rescue animals in need. Should you wish to adopt a pet and give them a home forever, you are welcome to visit between opening hours (Monday to Saturday, 10am-4pm and Sunday, 10am-2pm). Rescuing a pet is very rewarding. The animals there are microchipped, de-flead, wormed and de-sexed before they leave, making it a great option for those

wanting a healthy and loving companion. I recently visited the Canterbury SPCA to get a better understanding of what it is they exactly do. I talked to the friendly staff and they were happy to answer any questions I had. I found out that the SPCA had over 2000 animals in their care last year as well finding out various ways that you can donate and show your support. The SPCA needs our support. There are various ways to get involved and help. If you are keen to get involved, you don’t just have to donate money, you can also donate your time, blankets, sheets, towels, food, toys and treats.

Pipe organ will be preserved

A PIPE organ at Prebbleton’s All Saints Church has been recognised for its heritage value. The listing on the New Zealand Organ Preservation Trust’s register of historic pipe organs recognises it as an instrument of importance (category 1) to national heritage and one deserving careful preservation for the benefit of future generations. It is one of only two of its kind in New Zealand and the other one has been extensively modified. Built by Wadsworth Bros in England in 1898, the organ was installed in 1907 in the newly rebuilt church following a fire which had completely destroyed the building and its contents. Church warden Graham Carpenter said the local congregation felt privileged to have such a beautiful organ in the church for their services. •Article and photograph supplied by Prebbleton Heritage

Endangered birds in focus A FLOCK of most unusual birds has landed on the Selwyn Aquatic Centre grounds in Rolleston bringing a special message. The travelling display of handmade birds, created by hundreds of Canterbury schoolchildren, has been flying around Canterbury since mid-September and will stay at the aquatic centre for two to three weeks. The Flock is a project which has been organised by the charity BRaid (Braided River Aid) to increase awareness of endangered birds that use Canterbury’s rivers for breeding. “Real braided river birds raise their chicks on riverbeds from early spring until mid summer,” BRaid manager Sonny Whitelaw said. “Some species only breed on Canterbury rivers and most are having less and less success.” The artistic display was about educating people about these visiting rare and precious birds and how they could play a part in their long-term survival. “Braided rivercare groups put in huge voluntary hours managing hundreds of predator traps along riverbanks, but more knowledge in the community at large also

helps,” Ms Whitelaw said. “Birds are nesting on stony open riverbed areas until February. Help the next generation of these unique birds survive by keeping four-wheel-drives and dogs away and moving away yourself if you notice you are

disturbing birds.” The Department of Conservation and many community groups, schools and businesses are supporting the project, including Resene Paints. The Flock has already popped up outside Rangiora Library,

at Christchurch Airport, the Methven iSite, Salmon Tales Cafe in Rakaia, and as far north as Kaikoura. ‘Flash Flocks’ will continue to appear around Canterbury into next year with the birds’ travels being tracked on social media.

Rooster bowling update

ON THE WATER: Sam Bosworth has been named as a coxswain in the New Zealand elite summer rowing squad.

Lincoln coxswain in national team LINCOLN University’s newly named Sportsperson of the Year, Sam Bosworth, is looking forward to a busy summer after moving into the top level of his sport. He has been named as a coxswain in the New Zealand elite summer rowing squad and hopes to go on from there to claim selection for next year’s world championship campaigns at the helm of the men’s eight. Bosworth, from Waipara, claimed the Lincoln award last month after coxing the men’s under-23 four to victory in

the world championships in Rotterdam, which he calls the highlight of his sporting career so far. It followed a slew of silvers with different crews in previous years. The globe-trotting sportsman is finishing his degree in environmental planning and then it’s onto summer camp in Cambridge from October until February with the elite rowers. He is on a sports scholarship and prime minister’s scholarship and is grateful to a bevy of sponsors and supporters who have helped him get to this stage

in his career, as well as previous coaches who have mentored him over the years and the many athletes he has coxed. He started the sport while at school at Christ’s College and has moved from coxing to the coaching boat. Bosworth said while steering might be an obvious part of the job, so was strategy and man– management. They were the aspects he enjoyed the most. There were also the traditional roles of bringing out the oars and doing odd-jobs, but he “loves the racing” so it was all worthwhile.

„„ By Karolyn Boon THE ROOSTER bowling competition started in 1905, with a trophy presented by R. Louden, a bank manager in Leeston. The trophy is a sterling silver rooster on black background which, in 1994, was valued at $1400. Originally played between Leeston, Dunsandel and Southbridge, in 1917 the Ellesmere Men’s Bowling Association took the trophy over. Then in the 1950s, Lincoln joined followed by other clubs. Although the men’s and ladies’ competitions are now amalgamated into one association, called Ellesmere Bowls Sub Centre, The Rooster remains a men-only competition. It is always tightly fought and often comes down to the last round for a winner to be declared. Results after two rounds in The Rooster have Dunsandel and Lincoln 3 tied on 10 points with Lincoln 4 and Tai Tapu close behind on eight points. Other results from the week: Chatterton Cup, round 3: Tai Tapu, 6 beat Southbridge, 2; Akaroa, 4 beat Lincoln, 1; Dunsandel, 4 drew with Lincoln 5, 4; Diamond Harbour, 8 beat Lincoln 4, 0; Leeston 1, 5 beat

Tennis club celebrates 130 years ONE OF the oldest tennis clubs in the country will celebrate its 130th jubilee this weekend. The Kirwee Tennis Club was formed on October 1, 1886. It will also celebrate 50 years since the beginning of annual home and away matches between Kirwee and the West Coast’s Paroa Tennis Club. The club, which currently has 31 seniors and 65 juniors, will begin its celebrations with drinks at the pavilion on Friday, from 7.30pm. This will be followed on Saturday with social tennis at 1pm and an exhibition doubles match at 3pm. The doubles match is expected to involve two former Davis Cup players, although names are yet to be confirmed, playing with two club members. A jubilee dinner will be held, also on Saturday, from 6.30pm at the Kirwee Community Hall. The guest speaker will be former Detective Inspector John Doyle who was the first New Zealand police officer to be based in China and played tennis for Paroa against Kirwee. A plaque marking the jubilee will also be unveiled by the club’s oldest male member, while the jubilee cake will be cut by the oldest female member. Celebrations will conclude with the annual match between Kirwee and Paroa on Sunday, starting with morning tea at

10.30am. The first two tennis courts at Kirwee were formed in the early days of the club at Kirwee Domain, with the domain board and the fledgling club each donating five pounds. The club moved to its present location in the domain in 1936 with the opening of two new courts and a pavilion. Over the years, a further four courts have been added. All six courts were resurfaced after the earthquakes caused cracking at a cost of $92,000. During the 1960s, the club enjoyed its most successful period in the Malvern competition, when two of its teams finished first and second in the Malvern A grade competition. The exchange matches with Paroa began in 1966 as a result of the relationship built between Paroa player Richie Gibbens and Kirwee player Murray Wilson during the many meetings they had when Malvern and West Coast clashed in representative tennis. The club has won the A grade tennis cup 33 times since competitions began in 1926. The modern Kirwee Gold and Kirwee Black teams have been adding to that total. Kirwee has always had strong representation at Malvern level playing for the Browning Shield, vied for by teams from

Batters let Weedons down in run chase A LATE order batting collapse saw Weedons fall short in their run chase against Oxford in the latest round of the Canterbury Country premier one day competition. Bowling first, pace bowlers Sam Haselwood and Kane Mayerhoof dismissed three of Oxford’s top four batsmen for single figures. However, it was an experienced campaigner at the other end doing the damage for the visitors. Canterbury and former Black Cap Peter Fulton was a calming presence as others fell around him, top scoring with 40 runs which included five boundaries. Only three Oxford batsmen scored in double figures as they fell to be all out in the 42nd over for 183. Mayerhoof and George

Redpath both picked up three wickets for Weedons. Weedons run chase got off to a promising start. Opener Josh Watson top scored with 52 and combined with Will Duncan for a 50-run fourth wicket partnership to have the team at 103-2 after 26 overs. A collapse saw Weedons lose three wickets for just two runs. CHARGING IN: Pace bowler Josh Watson This sparked a quick finish to arrives at the crease ready to deliver. their hopes of a first win this summer. They were bowled out for 152 in the 40th over, 32 runs short of their target. It wasn’t a day to remember for Weedons bowler Jonathan Green. His bowling figures included one wicket, 21 wides and a no-ball from his five overs. He was then dismissed for a one ball golden duck in the second innings.

BOWLED ‘EM: Kane Mayerhoof celebrates with wicketkeeper James Wilson one of his three dismissals.

POISED: Weedons’ Josh Cole delivers a full-pitched delivery to an Oxford batsman.

INTERESTING TECHNIQUE: Garth Painter stops the ball in the field.

FULLY COMMITTED: Kane Meyerhoff comes agonisingly close to snaring a catch from his own delivery.

Watch out for your gumboots and shoes,” warns fair organiser Lucy Cookson. The Hororata Parish Spring Fair features a large number of market stalls specifically offering a range of local products and produce. The White Elephant which fills the entire stables at the Hororata Domain is a must, along with the unique Country Auction (11.30am kick-off) hosted by the infamous ‘Fred’ - be sure to grab yourself a bargain!

We are now surveying our community on what you would like our district’s environment to be like in the future. The survey is the start of a project which will run over the next few years to review the council’s District Plan. The District Plan controls the activities allowed on different properties, where shops, industrial areas and new housing is located and is also designed to protect our environment. Selwyn is the fastest growing district in New Zealand so our district has been changing rapidly. The survey aims to find out what people like about our district now and what they would like to see in the future. As part of the District Plan review, more consultation is planned over the next few years on specific topics. “In May this year we carried out our annual Resident’s Survey which included a question about whether people thought Selwyn was a great place to live. The survey found that most people thought Selwyn was a great place to live and many people mentioned they liked Selwyn’s rural feel or that our district had a good mix of townships and rural areas,” says Mel Renganathan, the Council’s Strategy and Policy Advisor. “In this survey we want to find out what aspects of our district help create the rural feel that people like.” The survey is available at www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay. It takes around five minutes to complete and is open until 4 December. By completing it you can go into a draw to win one of five $100 prezzy vouchers. If you have questions about the survey please contact Mel on 347 2712 or Emma on 347 2920 or email districtplanreview@selwyn.govt.nz

We are now surveying our community on what you would like our district’s environment to be like in the future. The survey is the start of a project which will run over the next few years to review the council’s District Plan. The District Plan controls the activities allowed on different properties, where shops, industrial areas and new housing is located and is also designed to protect our environment. Selwyn is the fastest growing district in New Zealand so our district has been changing rapidly. The survey aims to find out what people like about our district now and what they would like to see in the future. As part of the District Plan review, more consultation is planned over the next few years on specific topics. “In May this year we carried out our annual Resident’s Survey which included a question about whether people thought Selwyn was a great place to live. The survey found that most people thought Selwyn was a great place to live and many people mentioned they liked Selwyn’s rural feel or that our district had a good mix of townships and rural areas,” says Mel Renganathan, the Council’s Strategy and Policy Advisor. “In this survey we want to find out what aspects of our district help create the rural feel that people like.” The survey is available at www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay. It takes around five minutes to complete and is open until 4 December. By completing it you can go into a draw to win one of five $100 prezzy vouchers. If you have questions about the survey please contact Mel on 347 2712 or Emma on 347 2920 or email districtplanreview@selwyn.govt.nz

Gardening Work in advance for Xmas With the warmer weather comes the ever-knowing awareness and understanding that Christmas is really not that far away TURN THE corner and we are almost there. Wise are those who plan and work in advance. Unfortunately, most of us wait until the last minute to work on our gardens, just before the big day arrives. Often we find the task either too big or too difficult, hence a lot of us leave it incomplete or even worse, don’t start at all. Well, here are some simple tips to improve your outdoor living areas. You can always let the cobwebs inside take care of themselves, at least they catch flies. One: If your garden is too much to handle then simplify it. Look at what plants you have. Your likes and dislikes. Too big or too small? Leaf droppers or sun blockers? The list goes on. Ascertain what has to go and get rid of them. You may be surprised at how simple things make a big difference. Two: Remember, often less is best. At this stage you may need to seek some professional advice to help keep in mind the picture you want to create. Three: If your garden and plant maintenance is high and you’re finding it hard to cope, then weed out the problem. For

Get outside and go potty

AESTHETICS: Raised gardens add a point of interest.

example, it just maybe time to realise that the roses are no longer suitable. Remember you can always substitute them with an alternative plant. Four: Consider building raised gardens with timber or garden sleepers. Besides adding a point of interest, you have the added benefits of a well drained garden that is easier to maintain. You may even consider split level gardens which will add an aesthetic value to your piece of paradise. Five: Consider plants that either give off scent or produce food. This is an increasingly popular trend, with the benefits of producing organic fruit and vegetables being both healthy for

the body, good for the soul and satisfying for the pocket. Six: Make your garden as maintenance-free as possible. Consider alternatives to bark and mulch using non-organic product such as decorative stone and using a quality non-woven weed matt for weed control. Seven: Consider painting or staining timber fences, retaining walls and other wooden structures. This will give a fresh look and can be colour co-ordinated to enhance your overall look and design. Eight: If the task is too much or you need some advice call your professional landscaper for help. There may be things you haven’t considered.

GARDENING IN pots is a spectacularly rewarding and low labour hobby. Instead of battling the elements, treating tired old soil, weeding and digging frantically, you simply tip the prepared perfect potting mix into the container, follow it up with the plants, water and wait. It’s hard to go wrong. You just move the pot around until you’ve found the perfect sunny or shady spot, without disturbing the root system, because a container garden is portable. You can move it about your home, patio or garden to fill bare spots at any time of year. And best of all, when you move house, you don’t have to leave your cherished garden behind – they all shift with the furniture. Furthermore, container gardens look great anywhere – as hanging baskets on terraces and pergolas, half round containers spilling colour down a wall or

fence, or simply sitting on paved areas, decks and steps. For best effect, plan your planter by height as well as colour. You can mix annuals with a central perennial until the perennial gets well established, and in the meantime, enjoy a miniature garden rather than a miniature plant surrounded by bare earth. You can dispense with the annuals when the perennial takes over. Container gardeners can pretty much give up weeding altogether. But you don’t need to do a bit of soil maintenance from time to time, because the plants aren’t in a self renewing envi- ronment – they’re relying on you to give them nutrition and moisture. Potted plants can dry out fast. Some will need watering up to twice a day in the hotter months, particularly those in terracotta and other porous pots.

gardening without guesswork Question:

I am new to Canterbury and am wondering what things can I do when planting my new gardens to prepare for the much drier summer months?

Choosing your growing mix is important, you will want to make sure you have a good quality soil and/or compost mixture. Carefully selecting your plants for the climate is important too. If you choose plants that aren’t very drought tolerant, and you aren’t able to provide them with the amount of watering as they need, then these may not be the plants for you. How you water your plants is very important too. When watering, make sure that you give them a good long soak once or twice a week for a couple of hours, rather than a light sprinkle each day. This helps to get the plant’s roots deeper in the ground, reduce fungal diseases and gives the plants a greater reservoir to draw from. Adding mulch around the drip line will also help to conserve moisture, and suppress weeds, which is ideal as weeds will fight you plants for the water and nutrients. Any of our bark mulches will be ideal for this, come down and have a look at what is available, and if you can’t collect it yourself, we can arrange a delivery for you.

Gardening

Water has a calming and cooling effect IN THE heat of summer, water brings a welcome cooling effect to any garden and its use is one that every gardener should consider. Water’s cooling magic works in two ways – physical and psychological – and understanding these helps the gardener best harness its powers. Jumping into a cool pool is a great way of chilling out on a hot day, but even if we don’t take the plunge, a body of water has a cooling effect because evaporation from its surface helps cool the surrounding air. This air-cooling effect is greatest when water is splashed or dispersed into small droplets, because this tends to increase the amount that evaporates. And if some is splashed onto our skins and clothing, we notice this cooling effect directly. Water’s psychological cooling powers are partly due to association. We have all been exposed to its physical cooling features, so even just thinking about a gushing waterfall or bush pool helps us feel cooler. Seeing or hearing water has an even greater effect than imagining it. There’s a further way water seems to help us chill out on a hot day. This is due to its

calming effects. It’s hard to feel hot and bothered when contemplating a calm sheet of water or when soothed by the sounds of water trickling, gurgling or gently splashing. Even the impersonal, repetitive crash of strong surf can have a remarkably calming effect. The question for the gardener is how best to exploit these combined cooling powers of water in the summer garden, keeping in mind that the same cooling effects could also be an unwelcome in winter.

Even the smallest garden space can use water effectively. For example, on a patio you can enjoy the sight and sound of water trickling over the edges of a simple receptacle or simple, sculptured shape before being recycled through a small pump. You will find examples of these at most garden centres, some complete with pump. All you need is access to power, which on a patio usually doesn’t create major problems. Alternatively, you can pur-

chase a pump separately and design your own water spilling feature if have reasonable handyman skills. When choosing or designing such a feature, consider the merits of a piece that will look good when the water is not flowing because this may prove a more attractive option in winter. Another way to incorporate water in a small space is to purchase or make a water spout. Traditional examples include wall-mounted ones with water gushing out of a lion’s mouth but

simple abstract spouts or those featuring natural materials can be as or more attractive. Again you will need a small pump to recycle the water from where it falls back to its source. Other ways to use water on a patio are in small containers, such as raised oblong troughs bordered by appropriate plants to soften their base. Waterfalls are harder to incorporate on the patio. A fairly popular interpretation is made of a series of tiny stacked ponds mounted in a corner.

MAINSCAPE

October in the garden HOPEFULLY, THE highs and lows of spring have departed by now and the weather has become more settled. But be sure to keep an eye out for the possibility of late frosts. October is a very active month in the vegetable garden. Before planting add in copious amounts of compost to help create an ideal growing medium for newly planted seeds and seedlings. Vege plants for the summer garden can include capsicum, courgettes, cucumbers, eggplants (aubergine), peppers, pumpkin, tomatoes and watermelon. Maintain a close watch for slugs and snails that will devour young seedlings. A light side dressing with vegetable fertiliser will help young plants become well established. Water deeply when required, to encourage young plants to develop a deep root system. Preparation for your summer flowering ‘bed’ should begin in early October, including the addition of compost. Summer flowering annuals can include alyssum, asters, cornflowers, californian poppy,

cosmos, lobelia, livingston daisies, marigolds, nemesia, petunias, portulacas, phlox, salvia, sweet pea and zinnia. Spring blossoms should now be finished on pip stone fruit trees; apples, apricots, nectarines, peaches, pears and plums, with small fruit starting to form. Many of these trees have what can be described as ‘heavy post-blossom fruit drop’ and often only 5-10 per cent of their blossoms will actually become mature fruit, usually enough for a ‘heavy crop’.

Apply fruit tree fertiliser at 5-6 weekly intervals. Shrubs that have flowered during the winter months, for example, azaleas and camellias may require some ‘tidy up’ pruning before new growth commences. With all shrubs, a side dressing of general garden fertiliser will encourage strong healthy growth. Mulching with compost around the shrubs will help inhibit weed growth and retain soil moisture, which is very important as the weather heats up.

and as an industry we remain competitive internationally.” In 2015/16, $67 million was collected through the milksolids levy, along with additional government funding. DairyNZ’s work includes research and development to create practical on-farm tools, leadership of good practice farming, promoting careers in dairying and advocating for farmers with central and regional government. In 2015-16, Canterbury farmers produced 385 million kilograms of milksolids, worth $1.5 billion. The dairy industry’s milk production benefitted the regional economy by $830 million GDP (gross domestic product) in 2015-16 and provided over 6300 jobs on-farm and a further 1200 in milk processing. “This is around 7500 jobs – from on-farm through to processing and wholesaling,” Mr Spaans says.

“Dairy is a big part of the local Canterbury economy – and many others nationwide – so it is vital to ensure the industry is competitive internationally and product is produced by resilient, responsible businesses.” Local industry research during 2015/16 has already made good gains in developing farm options that could reduce nitrate leaching in the region, while retaining a pasture-based, profitable system. Mr Spaans says the next season would continue to be challenging for dairy farmers, as they continue to focus on operating under the low milk price. “The goal to support profitable farm systems has not changed. Being more efficient and utilising pasture is key to locking in the gains in operating costs, as milk price moves to a more sustainable level.”

Access to food essential for better urban planning Access to staples of the New Zealand food basket, such as carrots, potatoes, onions and leafy greens, must be a consideration on the table in urban planning, says Horticulture New Zealand chief executive Mike Chapman. Horticulture New Zealand has made a submission on the Productivity Commission’s draft report Better Urban Planning. The draft report suggests different ways of delivering urban planning in New Zealand to meet changing demands. “Parts of the New Zealand food supply chain are, in our view, being affected by constraints on production because of competition for suitable land for housing, and access to water,” Mr Chapman says. “Effects of shortages, or no supply, may result in increased prices for access to food staples such as carrots, potatoes, onions and leafy greens. “Horticulture is a growth industry in New Zealand, making an important contribution to the economy, including through jobs by employing about 60,000 people. “As a core element of New Zealand’s food network we need room to grow, alongside

expanding urban areas. It would be a serious planning failure for New Zealand to have food shortages and to have to import fresh fruit and vegetables that can be grown here.”

“Overall, Horticulture New Zealand agrees with the approach of the Productivity Commission, but having land to grow fruit and vegetables is critical to horticulture’s ongoing growth and our ability to feed New

Zealand, so the submission process is a valuable one,” Mr Chapman says. The Productivity Commission’s final report on urban planning is due to Government on November 30.

It would be a serious planning failure for New Zealand to have food shortages and to have to import fresh fruit and vegetables that can be grown here

Areas where Horticulture New Zealand has concerns in the draft report include: regulating the built environment to consider effects on rural zoned land; the ability for industry groups, such as Horticulture New Zealand, to participate in the planning process; and the ability for each council in New Zealand to approach planning issues on the same basis. The organisation believes there is a balance that needs to be found in streamlining and cutting red tape for urban development and ensuring that councils meet community needs, such as the ability to eat domestically grown fruit and vegetables.

CONTINUING EDUCATION Pasifika Trades Training leads to new career for Charity Receiving a Pasifika Trades Training scholarship has been a game-changer for Charity Ierome. After completing a 12week Essential Civil Skills course at Ara Institute of Canterbury for free, she now has a clear career path and a new outlook. “The biggest thing it’s done for me is build up my confidence. Before I felt like nobody and now I know that I can achieve and what I want to do in the future,” she says. Charity used to work in the butchery at Pak n Save, but knew it wasn’t what she wanted to do long-term. Her Dad found out about the Pasifika Trades Training scholarship through Reverend Fitifiti Lautua, a mentor for the programme. With so many opportunities in Canterbury, Charity says that trades training was a good career move and it made financial sense. “It was a chance for me to do something for myself and make a better living for my family. My Nana was my inspiration. I wanted to make sure she was well looked after back in Samoa,” she says. Studying for 12 weeks full-time was a big commitment for Charity, who also continued to work full-time. However, the backing of her tutor and classmates helped her to succeed. “My tutor had experienced the kind of difference that a qualification can make in your life and he was a real role model. My class became my second family,” she says.

The course was exactly what Charity needed to get into the industry. It included the core practical skills and certifications that employers look for, and provided support to enter the workforce. “The most valuable thing I learned was how to get work-ready. I was taught how to approach an interview and what to put in my CV. We also had potential employers come to talk to us,” she says. Just two weeks after completing her qualification, Charity was offered a job at City Care. She is now a Traffic Management Site Supervisor, wants to work towards a degree and has her sights set on a management role. “It’s like I’m on a totally different planet now. Studying has changed who I am and it has changed my family’s future,” she says.

Outdoor entertaining In the warmer weather it is great to entertain outdoors. The children can play while the adults chill or join in on a game of cricket, soccer or volleyball. Successful outdoor entertaining is often linked to good food and drink however there can be more to ensuring everyone has a good time. Some people love sitting in the sun while others seek shade so establishing outdoor living spaces that are sunny yet also have some shade and wind shelter, at different times of the day, will help ensure comfort for all. Umbrellas, shade sails, awnings, pull down blinds, pergolas or planting a hedge are all ways to create shade. Umbrellas come in a range of sizes with some able to be tilted to block out the evening sun. However, they not very stable in the wind so only really suitable in a sheltered spot. Shade sails are generally the most effective way to block out the sun while withstanding high winds. These can be made to fit a certain area and if well-made, are worry free though there is a little work in putting them up and taking them down, so once up are likely to be there all season.

Awnings or canopies which are permanently fixed in place are also an option. With large gatherings, many people are happy to stand and chat though not everyone will be comfortable standing for long periods. Seating might be constructed around decks and paved areas or incorporated into raised garden beds to supplement outdoor dining and lounge suites. Alternatively, guests might be asked to bring camp chairs. If catering for a group vary the food served and unless a keen gourmet, keep the menu simple, preparing ahead so you have time to spend with your guests. Alternatively, you might ask guests to bring pot luck or certain dishes, or meat for the barbecue and remember to be a responsible host, ensuring sufficient food and nonalcoholic drinks are provided. Count the number of utensils, plates and glasses likely to be needed, buying or hiring more if required or purchasing disposables. Add a little extra to ensure there is sufficient. The weather can never be planned for so have a plan B. If the day turns cold or wet, you may simply retreat indoors, to the

garage or have shelter rigged up in advance using tarpaulins or a tent. To keep warm a brazier might be used, if there are no fire bans in place, while an outdoor fireplace or gas fire will add ambience. An outdoor wooden or gas fire or a pizzeria might be included when the home is constructed or built as a standalone feature when landscaping. A portable gas fire might also be considered which can be moved around for use in other places and does not require a building consent.

Good hosts provide for the needs of their guests so they have a good time.

Barbecuing for friends

Precooked or gourmet sausages are a Kiwi barbecue classic. They are affordable, quick to cook and popular with adults and children alike. Other favourites are mince patties, steak and chicken pieces while roasts are an easy alternative. Meat roasted on the barbecue will be particularly tender when cooked slowly, at a low temperature. The size of the cut will determine the cooking time. Raw ham for instance may be cooked for several hours while a cooked ham might also be baked on low for about an hour. Hot ham is delicious in bread rolls or with salads. When roasting lamb, hogget or mutton try piercing the skin with a sharp knife and inserting sage leaves and short stalks of fresh rosemary in the holes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper then using the rotisserie or placing the meat directly on the plate, cook on high for fifteen minutes to seal in the juices. Reduce the temperature to 150 degrees Celsius and roast for another hour and a half to two hours. The fat will cook out of the meat leaving it succulent and falling off the bone. Beef also lends itself to barbecue roasting. Its cooking time will depend on the cut. Cuts that take longer to cook may benefit from being marinated. Marinades can be purchased readymade or mixed up using a little oil, garlic, sauce like soy and seasoning. The meat can be left in the marinade for twenty minutes to two days unless the marinade is acidic in which case the maximum time is two hours. Cheaper cuts like blade steak benefit from marinating before frying. Roasting chicken on the barbecue is also easy though be sure that it is cooked through. Try inserting an opened full can of beer into the cavity of the chicken then stand it upright in a hooded barbecue to cook. The meat will be tasty with a subtle beer flavour. Pork also benefits from seasoning or being marinated. Coat the meat in Hoisin sauce before cooking on high for half an hour then slowly roast on the rotisserie or hot plate, basting with more sauce if needed during the cooking process. Other seasonings can be added with plenty of recipes available on the Internet. Pork will also benefit from sitting after early preparation to allow the flavours to permeate the meat before cooking. Serve roast meat with fresh bread, rolls, potatoes thinly sliced and fried on the hot

plate, and healthy salads. Any vegetable that can be eaten raw might be included. Tasty salad additions that add colour and are high in nutrients include: rocket, grated beetroot and carrot, radishes, cucumber, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, tomatoes, boiled eggs, and herbs like parsley, coriander, Borage and Calendula flowers. To finish off the meal, icecream might be served with fruit, jelly or Pavlova; parfaits made out of fruit, cream and icecream; or icecream sodas where fizz drink is simply poured over a scoop of icecream for a favourite with the children.

Sprucing up the yard A lush green garden makes a lovely backdrop to the home. Tall trees and shrubs offer shelter and shade producing enjoyable places to linger. However, over time the garden can become overgrown, even when tended regularly and a good clean-up is needed. Rather than chopping trees down, consider undertaking some serious pruning and shaping to thin the tree. Some branches may be cut out to let light in and open up the garden. If the trees are tall, an arborist may be contracted to top these and cut out unwanted limbs allowing the shape of the tree to be maintained. Arborists are experts in dropping trees safely and will advise on any disease a tree might have and how it might be saved. With smaller trees and shrubs, a good saw or chainsaw and lopping shears can be used to thin and shape them so light penetrates through and other plants have space to grow. Prune back shrubs that are overtaking the garden and may be smothering other plants. Thin at the bottom also to allow space for lower growing plants, ground covers and flowers which add colour and interest to the garden. Now is also the time to cut out frost damage from plants and spray any that are diseased. If there are gaps, it is a good time to plant out and a visit to the nursery is bound to find some interesting new plants to add into the garden. Giving the garden a general weeding then topping up with bark, mulch, pea straw or another ground cover will make the garden tidy and help trap in moisture, assisting the garden over summer. Older lawns may need dethatching either by hand raking or using a scarifying machine. Like brushing

your hair, this takes out the dead and cut grass, helping the lawn to absorb moisture and grow more easily. The lawn should also be sprayed periodically using a specific lawn weed killer that kills broadleaf weeds and clover. Take care not to use a weed killer like Round-up as this will kill weeds and lawn alike. If moss is growing in the lawn, a combined moss killer and fertiliser product can be purchased for this job. For an even and consistent lawn, spread soil over any dips and hollows before re-seeding any bald parts. Occasionally applying a fertiliser to the lawn will also help to achieve a lush green lawn. Turning your attention to the paths and paving, sweep these then spray weeds growing in the cracks, path joins and between paving slabs. Treat any moss on paths, paving or decking by spraying with de-moss treatment. This can be purchased from a garden or hardware centre. The moss might also need to be water blasted to remove it completely. Lastly, replace any rotten or damaged boards on the deck before restaining to freshen up a faded timber deck, pergola or wooden outdoor tables and seating.

Decks, patios and paving The choice of a deck, concrete patio or paving will largely be influenced by personal preference. Patios and paving are low maintenance and last longer than a deck, the aesthetics of which is more appealing. One advantage of a deck is the seamless movement it creates from house to outdoor living area. With no need to step down, there is a feeling of having a larger home with an outside room, especially if the roof overhangs a part of this area or there is a pergola structure overhead. Concrete patios can be smooth and grey, coloured or exposed aggregate and lines can be cut into the concrete to create a paved effect. When raised off the

ground, the cost of the concrete may make the patio more expensive than a wooden deck would be. However, concrete patios are easy to keep clean and the concrete lasts considerably longer than wood. It will also be a smooth splinter-free surface on which children can play. On the down side, concrete heats up with the sun and can be glary. Paving is easy to lay and change. It is also reasonably easy to maintain though the pavers can shift over time causing an uneven surface, especially if the foundation on which they were laid has not been prepared properly. Dirt can also build up in the cracks causing weeds to grow, resulting in the need to spray or scrape these out. If choosing a deck, options include pine, hardwood, bamboo or a composite wood look product. Radiata pine is the most affordable wood for decking. It has the advantage of being treated and is available with a smooth surface or grip tread though is perhaps the least attractive of the decking timbers available. Currently hardwood decks are very popular, due to the attractiveness of the wood. Hardwood can bleed and stain surrounding concrete and brickwork and it will need regular staining to minimise the chance of it splitting and maintain its rich golden brown colour, something that could be a chore. Kwila, vitex, Pacific jarrah and garapa are popular decking hardwood timbers. They can be purchased smooth cut or

with a tread on one side. While Kwila is the most popular, you might wish to check out that the timber has come from a sustainable source. A decking product that is relatively new to the New Zealand market is bamboo. If sourced from a credible supplier such as the local Christchurch brand, Evoca, then bamboo is said to be environmentally friendly. Bamboo’s advantage as a decking timber is its density and strength. Still more hardy and permanent are the natural wood looking composite products. These are made out of recycled materials and come in a range of colours. While pricier than wood, composite decking is

said to be non-slip, hold its colour, and not warp, crack or splinter the way wood can; features that make it pleasant to walk on in bare feet or for the children to play on.

Spring gardening makes for a great summer garden At this time of year, we are more motivated to garden so it is good to have a nursery handy on the weekends if we want a plant, fertiliser of other gardening item. Rolleston based, Southern Woods is now open seven days a week. Their new season’s plants are coming in with a fantastic range of natives to exotics in store. Whether an ornamental tree or functional fruit or nut tree, Southern Woods have a good selection to choose from. “Edible plants that look good and provide fruit for the family are very popular at present,” advises Rico from Southern Woods. They have a great selection of fruit trees, vines and fruiting shrubs. Apple, pear and stone fruit trees whether plums, nectarines or peaches are also carried, along with berry fruits like feijoas and cane berries including raspberries. There are also lemon, lime, mandarin and orange citrus trees as well as grape vines.

“We recommend Chilean guavas to a lot of people as they make a great low hedge,” advises Rico who says this plant is growing in popularity as it is attractive and has delicious berries. You will also find more unique exotic plants at Southern Woods along with a good variety of natives, which are a major part of their focus; many of which are locally sourced so ideal for the area’s climate. With the frosts having passed, now is also a good time to plant evergreen species such as lemons and feijoas so they have three seasons to get established (spring, summer and autumn) before their first winter. Spring is also a really important time to add mulch to your garden as it helps carry winter

moisture into summer, while also suppressing weeds which can be rampant at this time of year.

Driven Fuel-friendly Toyota Corolla hybrid „„ By Ross Kiddie MY SUSPICIONS have been confirmed – I’m not an economical driver. How did I come to this conclusion? Well, Toyota New Zealand invited me to the launch of the new Corolla hybrid, and the event was held at Feilding’s Manfeild Autocourse facility. As a group of journalists we were tasked with the challenge of driving the vehicles around the track, and obstacles, against the clock for a set distance, yet trying to achieve the most economical fuel usage result. While my figures were midfield and a lot better than some of the group, the winners had results vastly better than mine. There was some conjecture as to the method some drivers used to achieve winning figures, but the reality is that even though I thought I was being light-footed, I wasn’t. What the exercise served to prove is that the Corolla hybrid can be made a very economical car to drive. Toyota rate it with a 4.1-litre per 100km (69mpg) combined cycle average, which was close to where my Manfeild figure sat. On my home turf and after driving the car for four days,

• 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

TOYOTA COROLLA: Hybrid technology borrowed from Prius.

the trip computer was listing a 6l/100km (47mpg) average when I took it back to the dealership. Those, along with a 4l/100km instantaneous figure when cruising the open road speed limit, are good results for a vehicle which will be sold on the basis that it is a fuel miser. The hybrid sits near the top of the Corolla range, joining the seven-model line-up at $38,490, bearing in mind that the range starts at $31,990 and ends at $41,990. The hybrid is GLXbased, which means it doesn’t get all the specification items that are offered in other variants, but it does get a reasonable level of fitment which will satisfy those who want a car where

economy is more important that status. Based around the mechanicals which have made Prius a household word in terms of hybrid technology, the Corolla hybrid utilises a 1.8-litre petrol engine coupled to the Synergy system which transfers drive though a continuously variable automatic transmission. The combination develops a total of around 100kW and 142Nm, varying at any given time depending on whether the engine is active and/or batteries are supplying the drive. Of course, electric propulsion is the ultimate aim, and if situations allowed, that would be the case but, of course,

battery capacity is constantly exhausted, and as a vehicle it is required to accelerate and maintain momentum, which is why the petrol engine operates at will. However, hybrid systems are here to stay, and until there are alternative technologies in place it is the best option for those whose welfare of the environment is a major car buying factor. When it comes time to tackle a quick corner or two it steers with precision and reacts favourably to steering input. If you also take into account that the batteries create a more even front/rear weight distribution, body balance is controlled, and there is just gentle movement over the suspension. The latter is a fully independent type which is in contrast to the tube beam system of its nonhybrid stablemates. I’ve long

been an advocate of independent rear suspension, and the doublewishbone system of the hybrid is absorbent yet allows wheel freedom which is translated into control under load. The tyres are a low rolling resistance Michelin compound (205/55 x 16in), nevertheless, they have enough grip on offer to combat gravitational force under pressure, and offer substantial steering feel for the driver. The Corolla hybrid can’t be considered a quick car, but it will return a standstill to 100km/h acceleration time of 11sec, which suggests that it is still has respectable speed for which we have come to expect from mainstream Corollas. Toyota has a raft of hybrid models on the domestic market, and here in New Zealand we only get handful of variants with many of those coming via Lexus. That being the case, the Corolla hybrid is an important car for Toyota New Zealand, and if you consider it sits neatly between Prius C ($29,990), Prius ($47,490) and Camry ($50,790), it is a tempting proposition for those who have come to embrace the hybrid concept, or for those who just want to experience it for the first time.

arly New Zealand houses were aligned with the street rather than the sun. Today, we design homes to maximise the sun particularly in the living areas, reducing the amount of heating required. If your home is older and the sunniest room in the house is the bathroom, consider reconfiguring the layout! Solar panels In a country with abundant sun and warmth, it seems extraordinary that solar energy isn’t our first choice for water heating. Initial setup costs are recouped quickly and even if your solar panels supplement your electricity usage, you’ve still saved on the bills and done your bit for conservation. Exterior cladding While low maintenance materials are often viewed as eco-friendly, the most natural and renewable resource is timber. As a large producer of timber, it’s not surprising that NZ still uses it widely for framing if not for exterior cladding. Windows Double glazed windows ensure your home conserves heat and can be fitted in both new and existing homes. Complemented by tinting and/or insect screens, they also reduce summer glare and heat, protect from insects and allow passive flow of fresh air thus reducing reliance on air conditioning. Insulation Insulate, insulate, insulate! Nothing improves the internal environment more effectively. For dedicated environmentalists, the use of wool insulation may be considered, both for its effectiveness and fire retardant properties. Walls, tiles and floors Dark coloured floor tiles and thermomass interior walls absorb heat and slow release it later in the day. If that’s not an option,

a sun-drenched interior wall painted in a dark colour can have a similar though less effective result. Eco paints made without harsh chemicals are becoming increasingly popular and solution-dyed synthetic carpets are kinder to asthma and allergy sufferers. Heating To reduce air pollution, we have introduced cleaner burning appliances such as pellet fires, approved wood burning stoves and gas fires, as well as various forms of electrical heating such as underfloor, warm air circulation systems and heat pumps. Central heating of air or water-filled radiators is also efficient, using a single energy source to warm several rooms. Other eco-friendly ideas • Install a rain water tank for garden irrigation or car wash • Recycle your rubbish • Use low-wattage light bulbs • Wrap hot water cylinders to retain heat • Choose thermal lined drapes • Buy appliances with optimum energy ratings • Turn off appliances when not in use • Fix any dripping taps to conserve water • Cut back trees and foliage close to the house • Let the sunshine in – even in winter

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

Wilfield – West Melton’s latest sub-division West Melton’s township had little growth until the Gainsborough subdivision was developed, nearly ten years ago.

Originally planned to be on both sides of West Coast Road, only the north side of Gainsborough eventuated. Preston Downs followed with developers Gillman Wheelans beginning its planning around three years prior to the Christchurch earthquakes. This subdivision faces Gainsborough on Weedons Ross Road, stretching behind an earlier development known as the village, to West Coast Road. Its launch coincided with the September 2010 earthquakes and subsequent announcement of red zoned land in Christchurch, explaining its rapid increase in sales with all 362 lots sold within four years. “The expansion of West Melton’s township was well received by its community,” says Hamish Wheelans, Director of Gillman Wheelans.

“Preston Downs was popular with people relocating from Christchurch and others wanting an alternative lifestyle environment.” The success of Preston Downs spurred Gillman Wheelans to look for more land and in early 2013 they began negotiating to purchase 92 hectares of the Wilfield Sheep Stud, on the corner of Weedons Ross and West Coast roads. In May this year stage one titles for the new Wilfield subdivision were released. Stage two titles will follow in October with stage three of the five stages, due for release within the next two months. “It’s a place where you can get larger sections that are in limited supply in Greater Christchurch,” says Hamish. “We like to create an environment that offers people a lifestyle with

variation of size of section and home rather than accepting the rules per se so residents can enjoy and take ownership of their living spaces making it an attractive place to live.” Sections at Wilfield range in size from 1,300 square metres to four hectares however, the developers have considered the potential for some smaller sections down the line. Across the highway, are the primary school and a retail precinct due to open soon suggesting that such growth will lead to changes in speed limits and traffic management with a lights controlled intersection likely at some point. Already, trees have been cleared to improve visibility for cars approaching from the east, with the idea that motorists will slow as they realise they are approaching an urban area.

Hamish believes that limitations can be turned into opportunities. This includes the challenges of achieving alterations to densities from rural to urban. Gillman Wheelans also see opportunity for more business outlets and have recently proposed to build a complex on West Coast Road. This would complement the new retail centre on Weedons Ross Road but provide for larger local businesses like rural supply stores and repair centres, fitting with the new Community and Recreation Centre to be constructed by Selwyn Council. Hamish will learn in October if this proposal has been approved. Whatever the outcome of Gillman Wheelans’ latest proposal it is likely that West Melton will continue to grow as an ideal residential outpost for both the city and the growing town of Rolleston.
