Hauling heavy weights at Hororata A kilt is not usually part of Olympic shot putter Jacko Gill’s competition attire but that didn’t seem to bother him as he tried his hand in eight events at the Hororata Highland Games on Saturday. Gill’s throw of 28m in the 22lb hammer event was one of several new event records set on the day. A record crowd of 10,000 people turned out at Hororata Domain for this year’s games. •See pages 4 and 5 for more on the games. PHOTO: MURRAY IRWIN

Rural business rules in spotlight „„ By Tom Doudney THE RULES around what business activities can take place in Selwyn’s rural areas will come under scrutiny as part of the District Plan review. Business activities in the rural areas have been the cause of a growing number of disputes between residents and businesses since the February 2011 earthquake caused an increase in the number of people and businesses moving to the district. The District Plan is supposed to be reviewed every 10 years. The current version was

originally notified in two volumes (Rural Volume in 2000 and the Township Volume in 2001), decisions on submissions were released in 2004 and it was made fully operative in May this year. Mayor Sam Broughton said it had been a long time since the current District Plan was developed and it was starting to feel a bit out of date. “Those ideas are now 10 years old and we have moved as a district quite a long way from that,” Mr Broughton said. He said the review was a chance to re-evaluate what

Selwyn wanted to be as a community. District council planning manager Jess Burgess said a project team was currently undertaking an assessment of the District Plan. “This will look at the positive and negative effects of businesses establishing in rural areas and whether any changes are required to address issues that are raised with such activities,” Mr Burgess said. “Where possible greater clarity and less grey areas for dispute is sought in developing the second generation plan.”

Asked whether changes were likely to make it harder or easier for businesses to set up in rural areas, Mr Burgess said that was unknown but there would be public engagement and debate over that issue. Mr Broughton said it was hoped the public would let the district council know what their expectations were. “We are keen to hear from individuals or maybe companies or groups that have got views on the things that should be relaxed or things that should be tightened up,” he said. “I think one of the things that

has come through is a view that we want to protect green space and the views that are available across our district, across paddocks to the mountains – that’s something that people have been talking to me about.” He said it was hoped the electronic version of the new District Plan would have features that made it easy to search so it would be simple for people to see what the rules allowed for a given property and neighbouring properties. The District Plan review is expected to take the next three years.

Tuesday November 8 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

HATS OFF to the organisers of the Hororata Highland Games – what a fantastic event it was. More than 10,000 people went through the gates on Saturday. Star Media, which publishes Selwyn Times, was the games’ media partner and what a great local event to get behind. We’re also getting behind another fantastic event coming to the district – Selwyn Sounds On The Domain in early March. It’ll be day of great music at Lincoln Domain (adjacent to the Event Centre) with headline bands like Mi-Sex and Dragon. But the promoters are also showcasing local acts like Southfield. The duo comprises former New Zealand cricketer Katrina Keenan and aircraft technician Dave McKenzie. They’re pretty good and will debut their first original song at the festival. See page 7. – Barry Clarke

Call for patience during motorway construction

LINCOLN’S FINEST SUBDIVISION

nine bands.

„„ By Tom Doudney WORK HAS begun on a $195 million motorway project tipped to drastically improve congestion problems for motorists commuting between Selwyn and Christchurch. A sod turning ceremony attended by Prime Minister John Key was held on Friday as work started on stage 2 of the Christchurch Southern Motorway. The project will see the current four-lane motorway extended by 13km through to Main South Rd, just north of Rolleston. Transport minister Simon Bridges said the motorway would halve travel time between Rolleston and Christchurch at peak times from 30min to about 15min. Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall, who lives in Prebbleton, said the completion of the motorway would be a tremendous help in tackling congestion and couldn’t come soon enough. “We’ve got 16,000 cars a day coming through Prebbleton township, many of them travelling from well outside the area,” Cr Lyall said.

GETTING STARTED: Prime Minister John Key, Transport Minister Simon Bridges and National list MP Joanne Hayes turn the first sods to get work under way on stage 2 of the Christchurch Southern Motorway.

“Giving them the new motorway to access off Shands Rd with traffic lights is going to make a huge difference to our local community here and the travelling times and frustration felt by motorists from Rolleston to Leeston really.” Mayor Sam Broughton said the motorway would also help

keep population and economic growth in Selwyn strong. “It will make Selwyn and even more desirable place to live and could mean new residents moving into a home near you,” Mr Broughton said. Sergeant Alex Pickover said it was hoped the motorway’s completion would help reduce

the risk of accidents for those travelling between Christchurch and Selwyn. “In the meantime there is going to be a lot of congestion and traffic build up so people just need to be patient in those rush hour times,” he said. Mr Bridges said the construction of this extension and the Christchurch Northern Corridor project, on which work also began on Friday, would see nearly half a billion dollars injected into Canterbury, providing hundreds of jobs directly and indirectly. “They will change the way people and freight move around Christchurch city, from the Lyttelton Port of Christchurch, the inland port links at Rolleston and to the Christchurch International Airport,” Mr Bridges said. “Well-designed and constructed motorways free up suburban streets for residents and offer opportunities for local businesses.” HAVE YOUR SAY: Are you looking forward to stage 2 of the Christchurch Southern Motorway project being completed?

In Brief SWIMMABLE COES FORD The Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee has formally agreed to lead a programme to make the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River at Coes Ford swimmable again. Chairman Allen Lim said the time frame for achieving this had not yet been set as the committee first needed more information on the science involved with cleaning up the problematic Silverstream catchment and how the programme would be funded. Whatever was decided, the programme would need support from the wider community to succeed, Mr Lim said. •River condition defended, p10 MALVERN CHAIRWOMAN Jenny Gallagher was re-elected Malvern Community Board chairwoman at the board’s inaugural meeting on Monday last week.

HORORATA HIGHLAND GAMES

Record crowd contributes to success A RECORD crowd of 10,000 people took in the bonnie sights and sounds, which included plenty of tartan and bagpipes, at the sixth annual Hororata Highland Games on Saturday. Jacko Gill wasn’t the only one to set a record in the field, with his 28m throw in the hammer toss. Luke Reynolds set a new field record in the 16lb sheaf with a toss of 30ft and equalled the 56lb weight over bar record with 14ft. For the first time a woman, Fiona Bond of Christchurch, won the pie-eating competition with a time of 46.41sec. The Gough CAT Oceania Heavyweight Championship was won by Australian athlete Luke Reynolds, with Jacko Gill coming second in his first highland games competition. Gill said the size of the event had blown him away and he couldn’t wait to compete at future events. “I have never competed in an athletic event with such a huge crowd [apart from] an event like the Olympics or Commonwealth Games,” he said. The event attracted nearly 100 highland dancers – one of the biggest competitions in New Zealand, 11 pipe bands, 54 solo pipers and drummers, 12 tug o’

war teams, four highland spin teams, while 30 people took aim at the small bore shooting championship and 12 amateur men and women heavy athletes tossed, threw and strained for the Hororata Highland Games heavy championship. Games chieftain Kyle Warren wowed the crowd with a contemporary performance on his bagpipes of We Will Rock You to rev the competitors up before the Hororata Stones competition. Mr Warren said it was one of the best highland games he had been to in the world. Event manager Cindy Driscoll said the games’ success would not have been possible without the Clan Hororata volunteers. “We had a record number of people volunteering at the event this year and they should all be extremely proud,” Mrs Driscoll said. The Selwyn Times may have also got in on the record setting action with an event it staged at the games where people were invited to write what they loved about Canterbury on a post-it note and stick it to a car. It is believed the New Zealand record for the most number of post-it notes with an individual message on a car may have been set, although the final count is yet to be made.

Duo ready for Selwyn Sounds best known for her six years as a player and further year as coach of national women’s cricket side the White Ferns, this isn’t her first foray into music. A country pop song she wrote and recorded about 15 years ago, called If Ever I’ve Been Loved, got some air play on Christchurch radio and earned her a spot as a solo artist opening for American country and pop artists Charlie Pride and Gene Pitney when they played at the Christchurch Town Hall. Keenan and McKenzie plan to upload their new song to their Facebook page on the day of the concert but have no plans to release an album. “We are both individually busy with our other career paths,” she said. “This is more of a passion and a hobby.” •Selwyn Sounds will be held on March 4, from 11.30am8.30pm. Tickets can be purchased via Ticketek and buyers will be able to prepurchase a return bus ride between pick up points in Christchurch or Rolleston and Lincoln Domain.

From minor repairs to alterations or new homes — we do it all.

PRE-SCHOOL GRANT The Darfield Preschool and Nursery has been granted $1000 by the Malvern Community Board to go towards a water exploration area in its garden for children under two. The cost of the project is $1600. The pre-school and nursery, a charitable trust, has already fundraised the additional $600 through various activities. The community board also approved a grant of $300 to the Courtenay A&P Show for hiring a marquee. CORRECTION In last week’s edition of the Selwyn Times we incorrectly stated that the Coleridge Habitat Enhancement Trust was one of three groups nominated for the Canterbury Aoraki Conservation Board’s biodiversity award. In fact the trust was not nominated and the AvonOtakaro Forest Park, which we didn’t name, was nominated.

RIGHT NOTES: Dave McKenzie and Katrina Keenan’s band name Southfield was inspired by the Lincoln street on which McKenzie lives. They will debut their first original song as a duo at next year’s Selwyn Sounds concert. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

„„ By Tom Doudney BESIDES BOTH living in Lincoln, there is one important thing that former World Cup winning women’s cricketer Katrina Keenan and aircraft technician Dave McKenzie have in common – music. The duo, who perform cover songs together under the name of Southfield, will debut their first original song when they play as one of the opening acts at Lincoln’s Selwyn Sounds concert in March. The show features big name New Zealand acts such as Mi-Sex, Dragon and The Jordan Luck Band. The pair first met at a social gathering at a friends place and when McKenzie got his guitar out to play a few tunes, Keenan took notice. “I thought ‘oh, he’s quite accomplished, I wonder if he would be interested in doing something as a duo’.” As it turned out, he was so they chose a band name based on the street that McKenzie lives on – Southfield Drive – and have now been playing together for about a year.

SELWYN TIMES

Your Local Views Selwyn River condition defended High Peak Station farmer James Guild writes in response to comments made in a recent Selwyn Times article which described the top of the Selwyn/Waikiriri River as “a mess” and discusses what those living in the area have done to protect the environment I READ an article in the October 25 issue of the Selwyn Times about Kathleen Gallagher and Gaylene Barnes’ proposal to film a hikoi walking the course of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River. I also noted with concern, the quote attributed to Ms Barnes that she had been to the “top of the Selwyn” and it “was a mess.” The property our family farms encompasses the headwaters of the Selwyn River. The south branch traverses the length of the station for about 8km and the north branch forms our northern boundary. The confluence of the two branches is at the lowest point of the property before the river travels through the Selwyn Gorge and emerges at Whitecliffs, some 12km downstream. I am rather bemused by the comments in the article. None of us living here has any recollection of Ms Barnes visiting and

picnicking “two or three years ago” and we strongly dispute the claim the “top of the Selwyn is a mess.” On the contrary, we are proud of the efforts we have made to ensure that the water in the Selwyn leaves High Peak Station in the best possible condition. Two kilometres of the south branch riverbed upstream of the confluence is protected under a Queen Elizabeth II National Trust covenant which also protects in perpetuity a 90ha of native biodiversity including ancient matagouri, red tussock and dry shrub-land. Two other National Trust covenants on High Peak Station protect a 4ha flax wetland and a 50ha shrubland face incorporating natural springs at the base, which form a significant tributary of the upper Selwyn. We have also completed several kilometres of riparian fencing and native planting of different tributaries to the south

WATER QUALITY SUPPORTED: The Selwyn River at Whitecliffs – 12km downstream from High Peak Station.

branch and will continue to do more as finances permit. Our voluntary efforts towards water protection, weed and pest control and those of our neighbouring stations, who also have tributaries feeding the Selwyn and have National Trust covenants protecting wetlands, have been supported and applauded by Environment Canterbury. Either Ms Barnes has a view as to what constitutes “a mess” which is completely at odds with the facts, or else she is geographically challenged and her picnic was nowhere near the “top of the

Selwyn” – as she describes it. Frankly, those of us living and farming in the upper reaches of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri are becoming heartily sick of the ill-informed attacks on our environmental integrity and the lack of recognition of our extensive (and expensive) contributions to maintaining water quality and biodiversity. Lumping all landowners in the Selwyn catchment into a convenient one-size-fits-all category as irresponsible environment vandals, is both hurtful and counter-productive to improving the state of the river.

Gaylene Barnes responds to today’s Soap Box column by James Guild Mr Guild, we are very heartened to hear about the care you are taking for the Selwyn/ Waikirikiri River on your family farm at High Peak. It sounds like wonderful work has been undertaken. We are very much interested in documenting examples of good environmental stewardship and may take you up on your offer for the next project. We have also been made aware of other excellent projects along the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River. The Walk for Water initiative during September 2016, and the short documentary thereof were raising awareness about the health of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River along the whole length. The journey began in Whitecliffs/Glentunnel – and my observations of the river reflect the sorry state of it at Whitecliffs and at the much-loved public picnic park at Glentunnel. Please see the video: https://vimeo. com/gaylenebarnes/hikoi-forthe-waikirikiri Perhaps there is something going on during the 12km run after it leaves your place to increase nutrient levels in the river to such a state that didymo and other algae have taken hold?

LONG HAUL: Participants in September’s Walk For Water traversed the length of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River to raise awareness of water quality issues.

Unfortunately, it is unlikely that children will be picnicking and swimming there this year at the public grounds. This is a shame considering the work you are doing at your end. One of the requests of locals we met at the top end (Whitecliffs) was for much better monitoring along the whole length of the river, and this is something that would certainly help to eliminate the one-size-fits-all reproach of

all landowners – ie those who are responsible towards the river and its edges and those who are encroaching on the river margins. According to a recent Environment Canterbury report – 339ha of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River margins on the plains have been developed for agriculture since 1990. Perhaps this is something needing to be taken up with ECan and the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee?

Footpath parking frustrates reader Robert White, Tai Tapu The vehicle shown in the above photo was parked on the footpath opposite the Tai Tapu Hotel. The car park adjacent to the hotel is empty. If you are taking your children

on their bike or in a pushchair to the domain to play on the swings etc, walking your dog, or just generally enjoying a walk to the domain, you will need to walk on the road around this bend into the oncoming traffic. It is not uncommon to see

vehicles parked on the footpath when there is clearly plenty of space available in the hotel’s adjacent car park. The footpath has been poorly designed and, without a kerb, it is difficult to see the situation ever being any different.

Our People

Jason Marsden

Making sure The Hub Hornby offers The Hub Hornby centre manager Jason Marsden, 45, has seen massive changes to the shopping complex during his 15 years in the role. Georgia O’Connor-Harding spoke to him about the changing face of the hub, including its recent $75 million refurbishment Tell me about how The Hub Hornby has changed over the 15 years you have been there? I suppose the key things are when I first arrived there was no Pak ‘n Save. It was just an empty car park with a strip of shops on the western side. There was a little stand-alone concrete block row of shops right along that border and then the car park and mall, so immediately into the mall on that side we had the New World supermarket. Out the front facing Main South Rd, we had a separate building that housed BNZ, and I think there was a video store and cafe part of that little block of building as well. Would The Hub Hornby be interested in getting a movie theatre back? It is one thing a lot of people ask about, and I think with the movie industry at the moment, quite a number of big factors come into it. People themselves have changed how they consume entertainment. There are no

plans for a movie theatre to be part of what we are doing here at the moment, but it is not to say one won’t be built in the future in Hornby. People have a strong emotional connection to having a movie theatre in their community, but unfortunately there is not enough patronage to back it up to make it a commercial success. What is it like running The Hub Hornby? It is a really interesting job I suppose. You are dealing with a huge chunk of the community. The mall is not just about a bunch of shops. The marketing side I find really interesting. I like trying new things such as the Halloween event we just had. Seeing the community’s response to the redevelopment, there is a lot of pride amongst the community. What does a normal day for you involve? In a mall situation, it is so dynamic and you are dealing with all the unusual things that

HUB MANAGER: Jason Marsden in the new food court at The Hub Hornby. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

are thrown at you and you have to slot your normal work around that. You could be involved in anything from a dog that has been locked in a car to someone who has had a medical event, so there are a lot of things that need immediate responses. Are there any unusual events that stand out to you? We have had lots of different things happen here. There are

certainly some things we have created that we are extremely proud of. Not only the growth of the mall itself, but things like the Maori artwork on the exterior of the building. The panels all relate to Canterbury from Aoraki right up to Lake Ellesmere/Te Waihora – each panel has its own story and background. The other really neat thing is we are locally-owned and operated. We

are up to about 200 shareholders now and they are all pretty much Canterbury people, including our tenants. And have you lived in the city your whole life? I grew up in New Brighton. Hornby was just somewhere you drive through. It was quite a revelation when I started working here and shortly after that I moved into the area.

a world-class shopping experience Did you always have a business brain on you? It is really interesting. A lot of people come into retail property management for a lot of different reasons. For my formal training, I went and did a Bachelor of Science, majoring in physics. That was a natural curiosity about things. Then I worked for the The Press for 10 and a half years. I started off there as a motorbike courier as my first job and then I went through to head of their classified sales team. I got to know many of the mall management people, as well as HG Livingstone Ltd, which is now real estate company Colliers International, which I work for. Then I had a year and a bit with an advertising agency, Waves Advertising. The marketing side has always been a passion for me and then this role came up. Were you ever interested in journalism? I would always end up writing a little article with some photos. For a small newspaper everyone gets roped in. I am into fourwheel-driving so I have done a little bit of writing for New Zealand 4WD Magazine. You have a four-wheel-drive club? Yes, I am a member of the

OUT AND ABOUT: In his spare time, Jason Marsden enjoys putting four-wheel-drives through their paces.

Canterbury Recreational 4WD Club, which is probably the biggest in Canterbury – we have about 100 members. It is probably the only club that has a tyre size limit so that is

really important when it comes to preserving tracks and not creating deep ruts and that. We have a big environmental focus. Is there one favourite place you like to go?

In New Zealand, my absolute favourite place would have to be Fiordland. It is such a special place. The proper glaciers, dramatic mountains, waterfalls, ocean and wildlife is pretty

hard to beat I think. Right from the time you drive through the Homer Tunnel; that is really like going through the wardrobe in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe so you emerge in a completely different world. What were you like at school? I was strong in the sciences, wood work, technical drawing. Probably a bit weaker in chemistry and math. I love physics and classical studies. I do enjoy the history side of things, which is another passion of mine – studying Viking culture and genealogy. I am involved in a history group called the Society for Creative Anachronism Inc. That is an American group that has been in this country for many years. Do you have any other hidden talents we don’t know about? I have a diploma in musical theory, but that is ancient history now. Unfortunately, as much as I studied music, I have got very little talent. I learnt piano for seven years. I have dabbled with a few string instruments, older-type instruments, Middle Eastern drumming, but again, there is lots of enthusiasm but little talent.

SPECIAL OCCASION: The two oldest children attending Edukids Farringdon, Emma van Zyl (far left) and Eric Gheonea, both 5, got to help manager Morag McGlinchy cut the cake when the Rolleston childcare centre celebrated its first birthday. Staff from Lemonwood Grove School, which will open in Farringdon next year, and parents of children enrolled there came along to celebrate the occasion.

EXCHANGE BLOSSOMS: Students from Kagoshima Junshin Girls’ High School in Japan helped plant a cherry tree at Darfield High School to mark 10 years of visits.

Year 5 and 6 pupils at Rolleston School had to think quick when they took part in a Top Team Challenge event modelled on the 1980s television show of the same name. The event requires pupils to undertake a series of team-based activities promoting co-operation, initiative, problem-solving and communication skills. Sport Canterbury ran the event at the school.

Darfield marks Japanese link A CHERRY tree has been planted outside Darfield High School’s international office to mark 10 years of welcoming visiting students from Kagoshima Junshin Girls’ High School in Japan. Darfield hosts a teacher and students from Kagoshima Junshin for about 10 days each October. Their programme includes spending time in classes with Darfield students, as well as going on outings to places such as Akaroa, Christchurch and Rubicon Valley Farm. The visitors stay with local host

families during the trip and give informative cultural performances to Darfield students. This year’s performances covered ninjas, pop fashion, Japanese primary schools and animated characters. Darfield’s international director Nicola Hely said the 10th annual visit was an important milestone. “We look forward to the relationship continuing to grow and develop in the coming years, and thank all of our host families and the local community who help us to host this wonderful group,” she said.

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: Sam tried his hardest to block all the holes in the pipe and stop the water from leaking out.

Equestrian second in Feilding BURNHAM equestrian Sophie Griffith came within a whisker of winning the internationally judged CDI-Y competition held recently as part of the Central Districts Dressage Festival in Feilding. Griffith, 20, and her horse Frangelico F came second in each of the competition’s two classes. Her score of 66.658 per cent in the individual test was just 0.210 per cent below the winning score of 66.868 per cent, set by this year’s Young Dressage Rider of the Year winner Lucarne Dolley, of Kumeu. She again finished second to Dolley in the musical freestyle class, recording a score of 67.300 per cent. Griffith and Frangelico F performed to the music from

the movie Finding Nemo. Griffith said she was really pleased with her results. “We went up there and just wanted to be top three,” she said. “To get so close to [Dolley] and to have some really good scores from the international judges, it was a real boost in confidence.” Griffith, who has just finished her second year of an elite equestrian scholarship at Lincoln University, is coached by Brugs Nicholls, also of Burnham. Griffith and Frangelico F will compete in the Canterbury Dressage Championships on December 3 at McLeans Island and will head back to Feilding early next year for the New Zealand Dressage Championships in February.

None of the Halswell batsmen could get in on the bowler-friendly track. Southern Districts showed more application when they had their turn to bat and

grafted away at the small total, passing the target for the loss of four wickets. Although Halswell bowled tight they could not get enough early wickets. Leighton Johnston bowled nine overs and took 2-10 while Mike Chatterton had figures of 2-18 from his nine overs. Halswell will host top of the table Heathcote in this Saturday’s must-win game.

Lincoln take wins to four in a row Lincoln’s continued its winning streak in the Canterbury Country Premier one-day competition with a six-wicket victory over Greendale on Saturday. Bowling first at Greendale Domain, Hugh Paterson and Reuben Craw were instrumental for Lincoln, taking nine wickets between them as they rolled Greendale for 64 runs. Paterson finished with four wickets from his nine overs, going for 12 runs. Craw’s figures were equally as impressive with five wickets for 19 runs from eight overs.

Nick Jenkins was the only Greendale batsman to finish in double figures. The opener top scored with 27 as he watched his partners at the other end fall one after another. Greendale struck early with the ball, as Craig Watson removed Lincoln opener Nico Lerm for two runs. That is the only sniff Greendale would have, though, as Jake Schwass (27) and Matt Benton (19) steadied the ship for Lincoln. Lincoln completed the run chase in the 16th over, eventually winning by six wickets. They have now won four

BIG OPENING: Prime Minister John Key (left) and Sir Selwyn Cushing at the opening of Skellerup’s new Wigram base. PHOTOS: ALEX PARSONS

Rubber factory platform for further growth „„ By Sam Pickering WELL-KNOWN rubber company Skellerup opened its new factory in Wigram last week. The $60 million facility will cover 19,000 sq m in Stark Drive and employ about 200 people. Prime Minister John Key opened the factory. Skellerup has been synony-

mous in the rubber industry since it opened its factory in Woolston in 1910, and was a big employer in the eastern suburbs for decades. The products the factory makes range from industrial rubber products, dairy rubberware, waterproof footwear, closed-cell foam products, mining products, vacuum pumps and construction products.

For many years it also made footwear at its Woolston plant. Company chairman Sir Selwyn Cushing said Skellerup’s Woolston site had been the company’s heart and soul for more than three-quarters of a century, and he expected the Wigram development would serve the company and its customers for at least as many years to come.

“We had a very hard look at our options after the quake – staying in Christchurch was clearly the best choice for the business,” he said.

Old favourites and interesting distinctive dishes for the food connoisseur have been added to a new menu created by new head chef, Simon Gilby at The Bridge Restaurant & Bar. Simon has considerable experience as a chef in the United Kingdom where he held sous chef positions and in New Zealand where he previously worked for recognised restaurants in Christchurch, Hanmer and on the West Coast. “I’m really excited by the prospect of the direction The Bridge Restaurant & Bar is taking,” says Simon. In creating their amazing new menu, Simon has gone back to the basics ensuring that fresh produce and seasonal vegetables are part of the food served at The Bridge. Dishes include slow roasted pork belly, Asian style prawns on a crispy noodle salad, sticky barbecue ribs, Buffalo wings and shared platters of meats, pickles and cheeses. “I like the idea of people sharing a platter of food while enjoying a drink with friends or family,” adds Simon. For the sweet tooth, the dessert line-up on the menu includes white chocolate and blueberry Brulee and sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce, which Simon says is always popular. Their junior chef, whose background is in dessert preparation, has also contributed to the sweets menu with some great desserts that include baked elderflower cheesecake and chocolate terrine. “When designing a new menu, I draw on the enthusiasm and expertise of everyone in the team,” advises Simon. The Bridge Restaurant & Bar is also an ideal place for a weekend brunch with their exciting new menu available from 10am every Saturday and Sunday. Dishes include a truly big breakfast, French toast and eggs benedict which is also available gluten free. Other changes at The Bridge Restaurant & Bar include a brand new children’s play area with swings, and a jungle gym, slide and blackboard coming

Gardening Have a holiday with livingstone daisies „„ By Tod Palenski IF YOU’RE after some no-fuss colour for your garden this summer, look no further than livingstone daisies. This brightly-coloured plant is the perfect flower to grow over the warmer months – particularly if you’re going away at all. No need to set sprinklers to timer for livingstone daisies. It thrives in dry, sunny and windy conditions. In fact, the only weather element you really need to worry about when growing livingstone daisies is whether there’s any chance of frost. Once you’re past the chance of frost, these pretty daisies will flower almost all year. They are also fantastic for growing in borders and creating mass displays of colour due to the succulent, spreading nature of the plant. Find a spot in your garden that gets full sun and plant each seedling about 30cm apart from the next. Once established the flowers will open to the sun and the plant will grow to around 1520cm high. Water them when you can but, as I said, they should be fine left to their own devices if you head away during summer. Speaking of holidays, if you have

The art of growing a good artichoke „„ By Tod Palenski IF YOU ask me, globe artichokes can be a little intimidating. Visually, they’re statuesque and striking. And, while they have a reputation as a culinary delicacy, to the novice it can be hard to tell how they should be eaten at all. In spite of all of this, artichokes are actually a very easy plant to grow. Possibly that’s to make up for the fact they do require a bit of work to cook … and eat. So, if you’ve ever wondered about growing artichokes I can tell you, wonder no more – just get planting. Because artichokes (not to be confused with jerusalem artichoke, which are nothing at all like globe artichokes) are not particular about where they grow, you can choose anywhere in the vegetable garden to plant. Alternatively, why not use that intimidating visual appearance to your advantage and plant them with your flowers. I suggest growing them in the background as they can reach around 2m tall. When you’ve found the right spot, plant each artichoke about 50-100cm apart from the next. Because we’re coming into summer it pays to keep an eye on how dry they get and try to keep them watered regularly. It’s also a good idea to apply a mulch to help keep the soil consistently moist.

HARDY: Livingstone daisies can be left to their own devices during summer.

a permanent caravan, bach or crib why not plant some livingstone daisies there too. This way

you enjoy the brilliant colour of livingstone daisies at home and away.

In around 20-24 weeks you can expect to see your first flower buds. It’s the inner petals and the base of the bud that is eaten. And it’s important, if you want to eat them, to harvest the buds while the petals are still tightly wrapped. This way the hairy choke inside (which is scraped out to reveal the ‘heart’ of the artichoke) won’t have developed too much. This heart is where all the flavour of the plant is. The first head will be the biggest and then smaller heads will develop off this. Harvest the heads by cutting just below the bud and include a small amount of stem. If you decide not to harvest and eat your artichoke, the flowers will develop into giant thistle-like seed heads. •More gardening, p31

gardening without guesswork Question:

What needs to be done when planting tomatoes outside?

WIN!

Prepare the ground two to three weeks before planting. Dig in good compost and remove any weeds. While you are there, check that the soil is not too dry. The best site to grow tomatoes is one that has plenty of sun, shelter from cold winds, and access to a good water supply (but has good drainage too). Tomatoes are gross feeders so at planting incorporate fertilisers such as Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser or Nitrophoska.

Answer:

Place the supporting stakes in the ground before planting. Plant the plants just above the seedling leaves firm in and leave a shallow dish around the plant to hold the water. Water in and then only water the new plants as needed to encourage the roots to go down deeper into the ground. Once rapid growth has started they must not get stressed so need to have regular watering and be tied to the stake to keep the stems straight. Laterals must be removed as soon as they are able to be handled to encourage flower development. for more information, check out our website: www.intelligro.co.nz or visit our facebook page: www.facebook.com/igro.co.nz Thanks to Joan for her question

pest control Aphids will attack the plants at any stage of growth, so watch out for them and treat at first signs of them. During rapid growth when the plants have lots of leaves fungi can be a problem to prevent this copper sprays will give protection from infection. When the fruit starts to ripen caterpillars may attack the fruit a spray called success can be used even near harvest time. It is recommended during the early growing stage that a regular preventive spray programme be used as prevention is always better than a cure.

Canterbury Anniversary weekend is typically the marker for when we can plant out our tomatoes. Generally speaking, the weather is more settled by this stage, and the chances of frost damage have passed. Preparation

The prep stage will set you up for a successful crop if it is done right. It is recommended that you don’t plant new tomatoes in the same spot as last season, or where potatoes were, as there can still be diseases in the soil that can affect the growth of your new plant. Prepare existing beds with Organic Compost, Sheep Pellets, and Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser. You can then add our South-Hort Tomato Mix to the top layer to enhance the growing environment. If you are planting in pots, use the Tomato Mix straight into the pot, no need to add fertiliser prior to planting.

Planting in garden beds • • • • •

Once you have chosen your spot, place stakes to help give the plants support as they grow and produce fruit. By doing this step now, you won’t damage the roots once you have planted. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball of your plant. Loosen the root ball and gently place the plant in the centre. Fill the hole with the remaining mix, and press gently around the base of the plant. Tie the tomato to the stake using plant ties. If you haven’t got any of these, old pantyhose work a treat too. Once tied, give the plant a good watering.

Planting in pots and containers

• • • • •

Choose a pot or container that is at least 35L. Fill the pot to approximately ¾ full with South-Hort Tomato Mix. Put the stake in ready for tying once planted. Loosen the root ball of the plant and place in the centre of the pot. Fill the rest of the pot with the remaining mix, and press gently around the base of the plant. Tie the tomato to the stake using plant ties (or pantyhose). Once tied, give the plant a good watering.

Fertilising and Watering

LET’S GET

GardEninG

Tomatoes are gross feeders, so they need a lot of nutrients to maintain healthy growth and to develop their fruit. The more nutrients available, the better the plant will grow. Intelligro Tomato Fertiliser is designed specifically for the nutritional requirements of these plants.

Fertilising Tomatoes in garden beds

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

Fertilising Tomatoes in pots and containers

Apply Intelligro Top Dressing Fertiliser at a rate of 1-2 grams per litre of pot size. Apply around the base of the plant (not touching the plant) and water in well. Re-apply every 4 weeks during the growing season. Establish a regular watering plan, a good long soak every few days should do it. Keep an eye on it, you don’t want the plant to dry out!

Gardening

Heralding the new wave Rachel Vogan says the hydrangea is one of the easiest and most charming shrubs to grow, and it’s making a major comeback. SOME GOOD old-fashioned shrubs are climbing their way back up the popularity ladder, and hydrangeas are making that comeback quickly and in epic proportions. Suddenly they don’t seem to be old and fuddy-duddy anymore. The value of having a reliable plant that blooms for months on end and is easy-care appeals to the time-poor. Being adaptable to sun and shade simply boosts their appeal. Planting drifts of hydrangeas is an easy way of having a low-maintenance, colourful garden display for months on end. These hardy shrubs can be grown all over the country, from the hot and humid north right down to the cold and chilly south. With foliage and form, these gapfilling shrubs need more recognition. Hydrangeas can be used in numerous ways: •  Planted under large trees. •  Blended into shrub borders. •  Planted along the shady cold side of the house. •  As patio and entranceway focal points. •  In pots and containers, and even hanging baskets if you can find one big enough. New dwarf hybrids are appearing every season, many of which are bred to cope with full sun as well as shade. This expands the areas in which they can be used in the garden. And it makes them ideal for growing in planters and large tubs.

WHERE AND HOW TO PLANT Soil is the main thing to get right. Make sure it is well dug over before planting, blend on half a bucket of compost or manure and sprinkle in some general fertiliser. Nestle in the plant, firm the soil around it, then add a layer of mulch around the base to keep the soil cooler and weeds away. PRUNING Prune hydrangeas each season after flowering in June, July or August. Remove about 50 per cent of the stem, down to a set of fat plump green buds, which will develop into next season’s flowers. PROPAGATING HYDRANGEAS At pruning time, select some straight stems for cuttings. In a pot filled in potting mix or loose soil, insert these sticks until at least 50 per cent is underground. In three to four months roots will begin to appear through the bottom of the pot. BLUE AND PINK HYDRANGEAS Hydrangea flower colours can change with different soil fertility. Many gardeners have been mystified by this as they may purchase a pink or red hydrangea in flower from the garden centre and find a year later, once it’s been in the garden a season, that the flowers have changed colour to a shade of mauve or blue. This is because flower colour is affected by the soil’s pH level.

The season for fabrics

It is time to smarten the house for summer, adding new curtains and accessories or re-upholstering a much loved piece of furniture. Outside on the deck or patio, the dining or occasional chairs may be revitalised with some colourful squabs and cushions, or the caravan or motorhome prepared for planned summer trips with new curtains, squabs and blinds. If wondering where to go to replace the camper’s blinds, venetians or upholstery then look no further than Classic Curtains & Interiors. They will take care of the window and upholstery needs for any type of caravan, including supplying honeycomb or pleated blinds so your home on wheels is given a real lift. “Sorting these tasks now, will mean everything is ready for summer, giving you more time to spend with the family, holidaying and having fun,” says Maxine, owner of Classic Curtains & Interiors. With Christmas less than two months away, Maxine reminds customers that they need to get their orders in early. Delivery time is currently six weeks for both curtains and upholstery.

ARA BUSINESS

Upskilling leads to a rewarding retail career A change of mind and flexible study options brought Neil Chand to the job he loved. Four years ago Neil was in his last year of his biochemistry degree, when he decided to take a little break and save some money. “I ended up working in retail and it turned out I really liked it. I found out that it could be a career too and decided to pursue this path. I started working at the Warehouse Stationary in Papanui and loved it. I never regretted quitting my biochemistry studies.” Three years into his job Neil wanted to upskill to take the next step in his career. He enrolled in the six month, Level 3 Certificate in Retail at Ara Institute of Canterbury. He studied part-time, so he could combine his studies with his job. “I followed the in-house training at my job, but was looking for something more. The Ara Certificate in Retail gave a more general perspective on retail. My main takeaway was the leadership development. Being able to understand emotional awareness and deal with different behaviours. You learn to cater to any kind of employee and customer.” This skill turned out to be very useful as Neil was promoted to a leadership role as Assistant Store Manager after finishing his course. “An important part of my role is coaching the team. I’m motivating the team on the floor and making sure the customers are being looked after. I love making the customers happy, we’re there to provide solutions for them.”

The retail programmes at Ara provide students with essential industry knowledge and skills for a strong start to a career in this sector. The options range from entry level qualifications to a degree, and part-time study options make it easy for people like Neil to upskill. For those who want to go further in their studies, options include the Bachelor of Applied Retail Management, which offers specialist knowledge and skills in strategic decision making, communication strategies, accounting and retail enterprise management. A 400-hour work placement helps students develop and practice realworld skills.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours Raewyn Clegg duration and would generally fit into Registered Teacher of low to medium risk Piano and Theory of area.

when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

Driven High levels of refinement in CX-9 „„ By Ross Kiddie QUIET, AS defined by the Oxford Dictionary, is gentle sound, and that could certainly be said of Mazda’s new CX-9. The new seven-seat sport utility vehicle is stealth-like in its movement, hushed and almost devoid of sound; of course, there is some audible presence, but the CX-9 is certainly one of the quietest vehicles I’ve had the good fortune to drive. That doesn’t surprise me because Mazda is extending the boundaries of automotive design, all of its recent product has stood out for engineering prowess, that is backed up by the number of awards the company has received in recent years, and the CX-9 explores that even further. Not only is movement in the CX-9 whisper quiet, the engine has also been developed so that it works in the area where it is most effective and efficient. Forget about the 3-litre V6 engine which used to power the previous-generation CX-9, the newcomer gets a turbocharged, 2.5-litre, four-cylinder unit and it has been engineered so that the torque pattern delivers useful power low in the rev band, the kind of power you need for everyday driving. The engine is still redlined at

• Price – Mazda CX-9 GSX, $52,995 • Dimensions – Length, 5075mm; width, 1969mm; height, 1747mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, front-wheel-drive, 2488cc, 170kW, 420Nm, sixspeed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 8.8sec • Fuel usage – 8.4l/100km

MAZDA CX-9: Engine designed to operate at low revs.

6000rpm and that is easily accessible, especially so in sport mode, but there is no need to go there, the turbocharged boost arrives at only 2000rpm and is managed so that acceleration is ushered in forcefully from below that. Peak power is rated at a healthy 170kW and is developed at just 5000rpm, which is also low, thus minimising the need to explore the top end. Torque is the most important ingredient in any engine and in the CX-9’s case it pulls from absolutely nowhere. Other than the useful acceleration benefits (0-100km/h in 8.8sec), an 8.4-litre per 100km (34mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average is also claimed. That correlates well to the 9.2l/100km (31mpg) figure constantly showing in the test

car, along with an amazing 5.7l/100km (49mpg) instantaneous figure at 100km/h, the engine very relaxed at 1900rpm. These are extraordinary figures for a vehicle which weighs in excess of 1800kg, and are indicative of the development which has gone into the SkyActive range of engines which power almost all of Mazda’s current product. It’s not just the fact that the engine is so strong, nor the fact that it does its job without making a fuss that makes the CX-9 so special, this big family-friendly wagon lands at just $52,995 for the entry-level front-wheel-drive model. An extra $2500 will buy you into a four-wheel-drive GSX while a range-topping Limited lands at $62,995.

For me, I’d be more than happy with the entry-level GSX, as tested, it is beautifully-built and comes with a substantial level of fitment, way too comprehensive to detail. ButSpecial mention must be made of the CX-9’s Bose audio. It is a stunner, the sound is rich and clear, and I guess a lot of what makes its clarity stand out is the absence of road noise. If you are a CX-9 buyer, ask for the Bose USB flash drive which has music especially formulated to enhance the audio’s characteristics. In terms of the driveline, power is directed through a six-speed automatic transmission, and it is a beauty in terms of shift refinement and seamless gearing. As mentioned, the engine wants to constantly work low down so that gear changes come early, but such is the clever way the power flow is managed there is no drop in

performance. I barely used the sport protocols, opting instead for standard mode which still offers flighty engine operation if you wish to be aggressive with the accelerator. While many SUV buyers opt for four-wheel-drive, and in the CX-9’s case that is most affordable, the two-wheel-drive model would suit me, it wants for nothing, ride comfort and handling aren’t compromised, I took the test car on a highway loop to Oxford. When it came time to tackle a few twists and turns, I found the big SUV to be capable and balanced in a corner. For a large and tall body the CX-9 feels more athletic than I was expecting. After a few months living in a student flat my daughter has shifted back home and I used the CX-9 to transport many of her belongings back. It’s that kind of versatility that makes big SUVs so popular. With the third row of seats folded flat the load area is cavernous (810-litres), while the seating configurations are versatile. It’s not often that I get so enthusiastic about SUVs, but the CX-9 is a class act. It is right up there in terms of luxury-like travel, and at a price where it is hugely competitive in a popular part of the market.

Disruption to Water Race Service Tennyson Street/Springston Rolleston Road Contractors working on behalf of Council will soon start piping the Tennyson Street water race between Kidman Street to south of the Rolleston School. This is part of a series of roading upgrade projects planned as part of the Rolleston Town Centre Master Plan starting with providing a roundabout at the intersection of Tennyson Street, Byron Street and Kidman Street. Piping of the water race will enable a new footpath to be installed and parking improvements to occur along Rolleston Schools’ frontage, which will then progressively extend south along Tennyson Street over time. Schick Construction will be undertaking this work between 21 November and 22 December 2016. Work will recommence in late January through to the end of February 2017. Water race users will experience a reduced water race supply during this time as pumps will be used to divert water around the work site. Any questions relating to this disruption should be directed to Council on 03 347 2800.

Young couples starting out, generally have tight budgets leading them to smaller properties, while older people may be looking to downsize. Brand new has a particular appeal however there will always be a market for established homes. Having a picture in your mind of the type of buyer will help in determining the features to emphasise. If repairs and maintenance need to be carried out before putting the property on the market, seek the advice of a real estate agent. They can advise on what tasks are worth completing and what might be unnecessary expense. Installing a new kitchen or changing the carpet may lift the house but will the expense be recouped in the sale price? On the other hand, modernising an outdated kitchen or bathroom could make a huge difference to the look of the place. Avoid going overboard unless the capital value of properties in the area justifies this. Real estate agents are in contact with prospective buyers so aware of what they are looking for. Draw on their expertise and advice to help make the most of the selling opportunity. Establishing a relevant and fair price for a property is important. Most agents calculate this based on the price properties in the area have sold for,

and what a particular property has to offer. A unique or exceptional property may justify a higher price, though run-down properties can gain more than they appear to merit. This might be due to the area or other factors that suggest a good investment. When promoting a property, mix it up and be creative so your property stands out from the rest. TradeMe is a must; checked by most people looking to buy. Present the features the property offers as benefits to potential buyers. Erect a sign outside the property. People stop and look at photographs and this might spark sufficient interest for them to visit an open home. Spending a fortune on massive advertising campaigns in every media might seem a way to attract potential buyers but may be an unnecessary expense without the return. A better philosophy could be a little often. This will depend on the value of the property, your budget and how best to reach target buyers. Buyer perception is also significant. For example, properties that sit for a while can become stale. Resting the property by taking it off the market for a short time, then relisting perhaps in spring or when sales in the area appear to lift a little, can make a difference. However, if a property does not sell immediately there is no need for panic or dropping the price. It may simply be that the right buyer has not yet come along. If the mix is right your property will sell.

Outdoor rooms Just because the outdoor space doesn’t have walls, that doesn’t change the basic principles applied to any design project inside your home. With a few simple fundamentals to guide you, you’ll soon see how easy it is to create a beautiful outdoor room you’ll love entertaining and relaxing in throughout the warm days and balmy nights of summer. Key considerations include style, function, lighting and mood, and remember that your outdoor room ought to be an extension of the look you’ve created within your home, which reflects your personality and lifestyle. FOCAL POINT Beginning, as with any room of the home, a space must always have a focal point to anchor the space. For some, this may be a bar or barbeque area, a large dining table, or a chill-out zone with couches or loungers. Outdoor fireplaces are becoming more and more popular as our living areas blend seamlessly between indoor and outdoor entertaining throughout the changing of the seasons. They can serve not only practical purpose of somewhere to gather around to warm as the nights get shorter, an outdoor fire can make a stunning feature or room divider for any outdoor living area. Water feature like a pond with beautiful Koi fish can also service as a great outdoor focal point, creating a tranquil environment in which to relax and unwind in, or create a meditative Japanese rock garden which your outdoor area can overlook. IN THE ZONE If you already have a large terrace or outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great

place to start. If you have a particularly large outdoor area, dividing the space into zones makes for a more functional and aesthetically pleasing space. You can do this by using a number of different elements, such as contrasting flooring materials or by creating different levels of decking. However, if you’re after a seamless indoor/outdoor flow or wish to create the illusion of more space, use the same flooring materials indoors and out. Divisions can also be made with the clever positioning of furniture. Use modular seating to create divisions between zones, and are also an ideal way to camouflage ugly walls. Create privacy and soften sharp angels. Living walls, an ever-increasing popular vertical plant system, can be either free standing to create different outdoor areas and can be on wheels to easily transform your outdoor space at a moments notice. Play with height and scale with various types of planters, whether you use hanging planters to draw the eye upwards, or oversized planter pots to add drama. GO WITH THE FLOW Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is easily created by opening up your kitchen with bi-fold doors or windows to create a servery or bar for easy entertaining. If you are building your home from the ground up, you may want to design an outdoor room which lies at the very epicentre of the building with rooms opening onto the communal courtyard with bi-fold doors. FUNCTION OVER FORM Consider what you intend to use your outdoor space for. If you don’t plan on

eating outside, there’s no need for a dining table, but buy some comfortable outdoor seating instead, and if you only intend on sitting outdoors during the evening, then don’t waste money on awnings and umbrellas, and invest the money in an outdoor fireplace which you will actually use. ATMOSPHERE Create unique and personalised outdoor decor with textiles and homewares from your travels, your favourite antique shop, or make your own shell garlands or wreaths from beach holidays. String up fairy lights or lanterns to create a festive mood in the evenings.
