Farmer in VICTORY IN SIGHT midst of Selwyn River land battle „„ By Tom Doudney A FARMER has been ordered to stop extending the land at the edge of his property by filling in the adjacent Selwyn/Waikirikiri River bed. Environment Canterbury has issued an abatement notice, requiring farmer Mike Dewhirst to immediately stop work on the land, on the south side of the river near State Highway 1, after receiving complaints from the public. Mr Dewhirst, who grows silage and grazes young cattle on his riverside property, has been taking gravel from the river and filling in a strip of riverbed to create pasture and a 2km long, 10m wide accessway for vehicles and stock. Pivot irrigators have been placed on the land. ECan principal resource man-

agement adviser Richard Purdon said the work was unauthorised and a formal investigation into the matter had been initiated. This was likely to take another week to complete. Mr Dewhirst said he had resource consent to take gravel from the river to form the access lane and the work he was doing would have environmental and flood control benefits. He had taken about 5000 cu m of gravel from the river up to this point. “It’s actually a really good thing and a lot of farmers have been actively encouraging ECan to increase the amount of gravel that gets extracted from the Selwyn River in particular because it’s probably 2m higher than it should be for effective flood control,” Mr Dewhirst said. •Turn to p5

Tuesday November 22 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

MORE EVIDENCE of growing pains in the district is our page 3 article on mobile food and coffee vans. Councillors will vote tomorrow on whether staff should prepare a draft bylaw to control such activities. There is concern that as the district grows, there will be many more mobile food outlets to capitalise on the growing demand from a growing population. One Darfield business has complained about the competition. And that’s a big part of the issue – if you are paying rent on a building and the competition down the road is selling from the side of the road, it’s tough. Also in today’s issue, Tom Doudney profiles Hororata scout leader David Grafton and we have photo coverage of the weekend’s president’s grade tennis match between Prebbleton and Lincoln. –Barry Clarke

Council looks into new rules for street vendors

LINCOLN’S FINEST SUBDIVISION

„„ By Tom Doudney A NEW bylaw may be introduced to manage the increasing number of mobile food traders operating on Selwyn’s roadsides and reserves. District councillors will vote at tomorrow’s meeting on whether staff should prepare a draft bylaw to control such activities. The draft bylaw would be presented for district councillors to consider in July. The staff report to tomorrow’s meeting noted that there had been an increasing number of these traders, particularly food carts and vans, operating or inquiring about operating in Selwyn, especially during the summer months. The report acknowledged that careful consideration would have to be given as to how a bylaw would affect events, such as farmers markets and festivals. Mayor Sam Broughton said the district council did not want to make it harder for the public to use reserves. “It’s looking at people who are making an income out of it, rather than putting more red

tape in place for community groups,” he said. The report said asset staff often dealt with complaints arising when traders operated on road sides. However, difficulties arose in persuading traders with the appropriate licenses to relocate as they had a common law right to occupy public roads. “Although the issues are not of a particularly significant scale at present, given the growth of the district, requests to undertake activities on land under the

control of the council and the incidence of road side trading will only increase,” the report stated. Two street traders had operated in Darfield over the last two years, leading one local business to complain about the competition it was creating. Other examples of mobile food traders currently operating in the district included a coffee cart which parked beside the railway station in Rolleston, a pizza cart visiting Lincoln weekly from September to May, as well as a

Thai food truck. The district council currently has a limited arsenal of mechanisms to manage these activities, including provisions in the Parks and Reserves Bylaw and a footpath rental policy. However, there is no formal process in place to assess applications or keep track of them. A bylaw would guide the granting of licences for trading in public places, the types of trading allowed, health and safety, pedestrian access, consideration of established businesses and traffic flow. The Ashburton and Timaru district councils already have bylaws covering trading in public places, while the Christchurch City Council and Hurunui District Council control such activities via clauses in their public places bylaws. Mr Broughton said the aim was to have the bylaw in place in time for the following summer, so there was no urgency to prepare it before July. The time would allow staff to do thorough research on what had worked elsewhere.

In Brief WEST MELTON MALL The new West Melton Village Retail Centre will be officially opened by Selwyn MP Amy Adams on Friday at 1pm. Ms Adams will unveil a plaque and Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall will also be in attendance. Four Square West Melton was the first shop to open at the mall on November 8. HOTEL ASSAULT A Darfield man, 45, has been charged with assault and intent to injure after allegedly attacking a bar staff member at the Darfield Hotel. Senior Constable Andy Grant declined to comment on what led to the assault, but said the alleged attacker was a regular patron at the hotel and was known to his victim. The victim, a middle aged man, was kicked and punched a dozen or more times on the afternoon of October 13 before other patrons intervened. Senior Constable Grant said the victim was checked by ambulance staff but was okay apart from “a few bumps and bruises.” The alleged offender appeared in the Christchurch District Court last week and was remanded on bail to appear again on December 2.

Dress for the wedding Take care on the roads Senior Sergeant Pete Stills writes on policing matters in Selwyn

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

IT HAS been a really interesting year for policing in Selwyn. When I started in the Christchurch west area as the police community services manager three years ago, my mandate was to lead a change to the prevention first policing model. The purpose being to create a safer community and a place where residents and others felt safer. At the front of the model is a people focus particularly on victims or potential victims. Within the focus there are five areas that drive the focus – families, alcohol, youth, organised crime and policing the roads. It was obvious that the greatest single policing risk in the area was vehicle crashes involving death and/or serious injury. Statistically the greatest number of serious crashes were happening at intersections. It was evident that failing to stop at intersections was a massive problem and it was apparent that motorists were failing to be aware of approaching stop controlled intersections. This year we have trialled the use of LED light advanced warning

signs at some intersections. It is too early to gather statistical data to make comparisons with historical data but my observation is that safety improvements have reduced crashes at those locations. Policing is really about health and safety. An issue this year has been the high percentage of burglaries and thefts occurring where security is poor in that people have failed to utilise locks. It can be really frustrating for us as there is a very simple solution. I won’t say too much as an earlier article I wrote regarding this issue caused one young man to decide to try his luck as it sounded all too easy. Fifty-plus burglaries later he was apprehended. As we enter the festive season it is timely for me to remind drivers that police will be actively operating drink drive enforcement in Selwyn to ensure that everyone is safe. We encourage motorists to plan for sober drivers and to utilise courtesy vehicles when using licensed premises.

Darfield area resident Grant Prescott writes in response to a Selwyn Times article about a Lincoln resident’s frustration over a section of road, West Belt, remaining unsealed We live on a shingle road just outside Darfield that is a complete disgrace, more like a thirdworld road and all the council do is come along, shove stones back in the potholes and within a day they are all flicked out and hey presto, the potholes have returned. When we ask about sealing, the council claims to do a survey to count vehicles but every time they do it at peak summer time when schools are closed, businesses are closed, people are on holidays and there is no local movement. I note Selwyn took an extra $50 off everyone for roads to assist with sealing. Where did that go? District council chief executive David Ward responds: The district council does not currently fund seal extensions on existing rural roads. This policy was adopted a number of

years ago after rising costs made it unaffordable to continue the sealing of low-volume rural roads. It also recognises the increasing cost of maintaining the sealed roading network and other funding priorities needed to cater for significant traffic growth across the district, including an increase in heavy vehicles. Many rural roads have low traffic volumes which don’t justify sealing at a cost of around $150,000 to $200,000 per kilometre. Current budgets allow for regular grading and maintenance work, which provide an appropriate level of service based on usage. The $60 targeted roading rate was introduced in 2014/15 to fund additional road resealing and reconstruction, to prevent further deterioration. Reconstruction work is needed on some busy main routes where the road pavement needs to be rebuilt to address long standing maintenance problems and reduce ongoing costs. Since its introduction this has contributed to road rehabilitation work, over and above what would otherwise have been programmed.

News University could cut 51 jobs „„ By Tom Doudney LINCOLN UNIVERSITY staff are angry at the proposed axing of 51 jobs and want more input into the university’s future direction, Tertiary Education Union president Dr Sandra Grey says. The staffing cuts are part of the university’s latest change proposal, aimed at resolving its flagging financial situation with a $5 million deficit and falling enrolments. Several courses, including four science majors, were cut in October and more than 100 had already been cut in 2013 and 2014. About two thirds of the new cuts would be in Canterbury and the remainder would be at its Telford campus in Balclutha. Dr Grey said staff were “rightly” very angry. “They feel there has been a lot of change and a lot of consultants brought in and a lot of not listening to people on the ground who know the courses, the students and the industries they are teaching for. They are finding that very difficult that they are not more involved in the discussions and deciding

BAD NEWS: Lincoln University is proposing to cut 51 jobs. Inset – Sandra Grey ​ what is going to happen,” she said. “It’s always tough when there is major change proposed but in particular, the Lincoln staff had their last major restructure only two years ago, they feel they have been through the ringer once and they’re about to be put through quite a harsh process again.” A university spokeswoman said it was acknowledged that this was a stressful time for staff, and internal and external

support was being provided to them. “The change proposals that have been released are exactly that, proposals. This is an opportunity for staff to contribute to the outcome,” the spokeswoman said. “The university recently announced the ‘resuscitation’ of academic governance. All proposals concerning courses and programmes brought to the academic board are first developed at faculty teaching committees

where staff can provide direct input.” Ms Grey said the union would be putting forward a submission opposing the cuts. The university’s vice-chancellor Robin Pollard has admitted the staff cuts will not be enough on their own. Staff have also been asked to take leave to reduce financial liabilities and the university is looking at selling some of its assets and partnering with other institutions.

Farmer in river land battle •From page 1 He said getting rid of the gorse on the riverbanks removed a source of nitrogen going into the river and he also had a plan to plant 8000 pittosporum trees around his property, including along the riverbank. However, Dunsandel resident, Alan Goodwin, said the case was the “tip of the iceberg” with many landowners expanding into river bed land which he said was ruining the environment and its recreational value. Mr Dewhirst said he would “eventually” be interested in buying the land but for now it was more a case of “being steward of the land.” Mr Goodwin, has complained to ECan about the work on Mr Dewhirst’s land. “I am sick and tired of rivers being abused for the few at the cost of the many.” Mr Purdon said while there had been pressure on all Canterbury’s riparian margins as farming land values increased and practises intensified, land owners generally sought permission before farming these areas. “Where we know about those that breach Environment Canterbury rules, like putting in illegal structures or grazing cattle in river beds, we have taken action,” he said.

FOR THE 2017

ON THE JOB: Selwyn’s incident command bus being used by a New Zealand Response Team in Waiau. Above – An earthquakedamaged house in Waiau. ​

Council helping in quake zone ABOUT 15 district council staff have been helping out with the earthquake response in North Canterbury. They have been working in the region since Monday last week, when the 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck near Culverden. The quake has been followed by a series of significant aftershocks. The district council’s incident command bus has also been in North Canterbury for the week, being used by response teams working in Waiau. The bus is designed to be used at significant rural fires or emergencies and is equipped with Wi-Fi and radio communications. District council staff trained in emergency management

have also been rostered on this week to assist with incident coordination. Four building staff have been assisting with building inspections in Waiau, with two other staff working in welfare management roles. Community resilience coordinator Jason Flewellen was also among the staff who spent time in North Canterbury. He and another staff member took the bus to Waiau, with 20 New Zealand Response Team members from Christchurch. “The response team managed to visit 130 properties to complete rapid impact assessments on the day. Some of the houses there had major damage and there were people who were understandably

very upset,” he said. “The visits were focused on identifying any welfare needs people had. Our role was to respond to requests for assistance and resolve them or refer them to local civil defence headquarters to be actioned if needed.” Several Selwyn volunteers from community response teams also offered to assist with the earthquake response and were placed on standby to support evacuees from Kaikoura and other affected areas at Canterbury welfare centres. Mayor Sam Broughton said it was great to see the community was helping in practical ways, with groups in Rolleston and Darfield collecting supplies for the response.

Our People

David Grafton

Scout leader’s love of the outdoors Hororata Scouts group leader David Grafton spoke to Tom Doudney about the cave system he helped map as a boy and the extinct animal bones he found inside. He also remembers the heartbreaking loss of his competition-winning three-legged sheep dog and the joy of becoming a father to identical twin boys. Do you live in Hororata? I live about halfway between Hororata and Windwhistle. I’m an agricultural contractor. I’ve got a couple of major clients; I just do whatever work my clients want, predominately stock work. It varies a bit, I get a bit of tractor work occasionally, some fencing – anything farming, it’s what I was born and bred to do. Have you lived in the area long? We will have been here five years this coming April. I was born in Southland but I left there in pre-school so Westport is actually what I call home. How did you get into scouting? I joined venturer scouts over in Westport before I left school. I was never in any of the younger ones and then at 18, that’s as far as you can go in scouts and you have got to become a leader (if you want to stay involved) so I did in 1982.

Have you been involved in leading scouts ever since? I’ve had broken service off and on, I’ve moved around the country a bit. I left the West Coast and came to Canterbury in the mid-1980s farming up the Rangitata Gorge, and then ended up in the North Island for six years. What was it that made you want to become a venturer? The guys I was at school with were doing it and I thought ‘yeah, this is a bit of me.’ We spent most of our time as venturers caving and I got a real buzz out of that. A lot of the time we spent was at a place called Honeycomb Hill. We were the original group that mapped that and it is a massive system, which is closed off now because of the value of what is in there which could be too easily damaged. There are a lot of moa bones and we found a full Haast eagle skeleton, which is

in the Canterbury Museum. We would spend a whole weekend underground, just going in on a Friday night and staying there. Were you farming when you were in the North Island as

well? No, I got to the stage where I wanted to make a decision as to whether farming was what I wanted to end my life doing so I got as far away from farming

as I could so I actually went and sat behind a desk, I wore a suit and tie. I enjoyed it while I was there, but I was getting sick of it when the company got bought out and I got made redundant. So it all sort of worked out really good, but it made me sit down and think that farming was what I was born and bred for and I got back into it. What sort of company were you working for? It was a big laundry based in Taupo and they supplied all the linen for the big hotels. My job was sales and service manager so I was in charge of a fleet of drivers, I was out making sales, getting new clients and chasing bad debts. It was exciting for a while but I missed my stock and my dogs and everything. Do you have any other interests outside of scouting and farming? Probably just sheep dog trialling, but at the moment I haven’t the time and my dogs are not quite up there yet. I had quite a good heading dog years ago, called Stacey, that I trialled. Unfortunately, she got injured quite young in life and I was pretty successful at a couple of sheep dog trials with her.

and his three-legged sheep dog She broke her leg badly and they couldn’t save the leg so I ended up with a three-legged dog – and that’s when she won the trials, she only had the three legs at that stage. But then she went on to injure her only other back leg and at that stage, unfortunately, the vets had to put her to sleep. Is it as impressive as it sounds that she won those trials with three legs? Yes, at the Loburn North trial she won all nine trophies available. She was actually the only dog, whether three-legged or four-legged, to have won all the trophies available in a particular year at that trial. A back leg doesn’t restrict them as much as you might think it does, losing a front leg is a lot harder on them. But she was an exceptionally good dog. How did she injure the first leg that she lost? She jumped off my fourwheeler to catch a sheep for me and it was just the way she landed on the ground, her back leg broke. I had to take her to specialists in Christchurch and they put it back together with a whole lot of pins and external scaffolding on it but, unfortunately, infection got into

it and they couldn’t save the leg. She had the amputation and was happily back at work within 10 days. But I always knew that probably one day her other back leg would be her downfall and she injured it to a point where the vet said it’s just not fair. That wasn’t one of my better days when I had to make the final decision. How did she injure the other leg? She was heading a mob of deer for me and she went through a drain, the leg went into the mud and it pulled the joint out. Had she had another back leg, you could strap that one up and she could take the weight off it and it would heal, but that was her only

back leg so she couldn’t stand up at all. Do you and your wife [Jacqui] have any kids? We have identical twin boys, Thomas and James, who just turned 15. They’re both venturers. Is that interesting having identical twins? It was a bit trying to start off with, getting to know who was who, but even though I don’t think they look alike, most people say they do, but they have two completely different personalities. How long did it take you to start being able to tell them apart? Thomas was born with a wee

strawberry birthmark on his forehead and that stayed there until just before he started school. The one thing Jacqui decided right from day one was we would not dress them the same. Thomas has his colours and James had his colours so that they did develop their different personalities. In saying that, there is something there about twins – some connection, some force, I don’t know what it is, but when they were little, they had their own language and they knew what was going on between one another without other people knowing what was going on. With all the adventures you would have been on over the years, can you think of any times when you or your scouts had to use your special scout skills to get you out of a difficult situation? No, through good planning I have never got into a situation which has not been part of what was planned. The last trip we did with the venturers was up the back of Mt Somers. We spent two days in the snow up over our knees. In the second hut, we met a group of German students that had gone in there, some of them were wearing sand shoes, one

had no sleeping bag, they had no safety equipment at all and were going to carry on to the next hut. We strongly advised them they really shouldn’t be there. I suppose scouting must be like having a big family for you in some ways. Scouting is like a family. You see them grow and develop and, although I have only been here five years, five years in a young person’s life is a long time. I say to all of them, ‘I am here to help you as much as I can to achieve what you want to achieve, I am not going to spoon feed you but if you want my help, you know where I live, you know my phone number,’ and I personally get a real buzz out of seeing the kids get something out of it themselves and achieve goals.

News Back to the future for Jordan Luck Jordan Luck has written some of New Zealand’s most iconic rock anthems. He spoke to Tom Doudney about life after The Exponents and the inspiration behind his latest material ahead of The Jordan Luck Band’s performance at Lincoln’s Selwyn Sounds concert in March MORE THAN 30 years after their debut single Victoria established The Exponents as Kiwi rock heavyweights, singer Jordan Luck’s songwriting is again in the spotlight. His new outfit, The Jordan Luck Band, was nominated for best rock album at Thursday’s New Zealand Music Awards. It didn’t win the award but Luck said it was phenomenal to have the album, Not Only . . . But Also, getting such a positive reaction. While his songwriting hadn’t changed much over the years, he works harder on the lyrics these days than he did in the early years of The Exponents (originally known as The Dance Exponents). “I find the tunes are still coming out of the air for me but it takes a lot longer to do lyrics than it did,” Luck said. “I was pretty spontaneous back in the day, whereas now I am

a wee bit conscious of the fact I might be singing these in 20 years again, so I really want to be singing something that I want to be singing. “That has been the case since about 1990, when Victoria was about 10-years-old and I was thinking ‘wow, people still really like this song, I wonder what is going to happen to the new stuff?’ And here we are nearly 20 years later and people are still singing ‘Why does love do this to me?’ And I’m going, ‘flipping hell, I better make the next one really good’.” However, Luck said this process had resulted in his best lyrics yet on Not Only . . . But Also. “Even if you didn’t hear the music, it’s a good read,” he said The songs, written over the last three years, cover some very New Zealand territory, often with an interesting twist. There is one about a murder in Lake Tekapo, another about selling paintings

ROCKING ON: The Jordan Luck Band will play Lincoln’s Selwyn Sounds concert in March.

on holiday in Southland and “a beautiful one” inspired by his memories of getting lost near the Wanganui River while on a road trip with original The Dance Exponents guitarist Steve Cowen.

He and Cowen, who died in 1986, had been on their way to record Victoria at the time, when Luck, who was behind the wheel of their Bedford van, decided to take an alternative route.

The Exponents’ induction into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame last year, with Cowen also recognised, had brought the memories back. “The song is really about missing him in a way that is pretty strong.” Luck said starting a new band after the success of The Exponents had been tough in some ways. “The Exponents turn up all the time, there is no getting away from that – we got into the hall of fame last year and now there is a TV film that they are doing on The Dance Exponents.” However, he still enjoyed playing the old songs and said the band’s performance at Selwyn Sounds was likely to be about 75 per cent The Exponents material. Unlike many of the line-up, it will not be Luck’s first time playing in Lincoln. The Exponents have played a number of gigs at the university over the years. •Selwyn Sounds will be held on March 4, 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, Rolleston and Lincoln Domain.

Southern ChiropraCtiC 290 halSwell road

290 halswell Road

Why top athletes use Chiropractic care Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps are among the many elite athletes who use a chiropractor to ensure they are performing at the top of their game. They see the benefit in not only training hard but keeping their body at optimum ability to ensure they can always get the best from it. You don’t need to be performing at this level of sport to see the benefits a chiropractor can make in your life to ensure your body is working at its peak. I provide physical solutions including adjustments, exercises, stretches and muscle therapy – to readjust the body or help it heal from conditions that are physical in origin. These can include problems such as back pain, muscle spasms, headaches and poor posture.

What you may not know is that it is also completely appropriate to receive chiropractic care even though you may not have symptoms. Unlike standard medical doctors who you visit when you have symptoms that need to be treated, chiropractors offer adjustments to improve spinal alignment and overall wellbeing – and can prevent the pain or other symptoms even starting. Going to a chiropractor is much the same as going to the dentist or gym or even leading a healthy life – it prevents problems from reaching critical stage where you can become incapacitated and as long as you keep up with regular visits, then you continue to enjoy the benefits of a life feeling well. I have been providing Chiropractic Care for patients for more than 15 years of and over that time I have gained outstanding results for my patients. These people have come to me for a variety of reasons, here are just some of them.

Accident or trauma Car or bike accidents and falls can cause severe spinal stress and subluxations If not attended to these can cause or contribute to health problems later in life. Active exercise/sport Chiropractic care gives you an edge. Many professional athletes and sportspeople seek regular chiropractic care to ensure they are working at their optimum. Pregnancy/Childbirth/Infant caring The hormonal and physical changes in pregnancy create spinal stress. The birth process can be traumatic for both mother and baby, and both may require care following delivery. Caring for a baby or infant can contribute to neck and/or back pain ie: position of mother during breast feeding and bending to pick up baby. If you would like to learn more about how I can assist you in any of these areas please contact me today.

Suffering illness,discomfort or pain These symptoms are signs of dysfunction in your body. This is a important time to remove nerve interference and irritation to ensure your spine functions optimally and symptoms are alleviated.

Southern Chiropractic, located at 290 halswell Road, is open Monday, Wednesday Thursday and Friday. on Tuesdays the clinic operates from Ashburton Chiropractic in Ashburton.

News Pilot’s war exploits in print „„ By Fraser Walker-Pearce PILOTING Lancaster bombers and losing two brothers in World War 2 are a few of the stories in a book about two Selwyn residents’ father. THe stories of Barrie and Kevin Mallon’s father Bill in World War 2 were published recently on the other side of the world. THe late Bill Mallon’s exploits for the Allies in the United Kingdom, and training exercises in Canada and the United States, have been published by English author Vic Jay, whose father served alongside Mr Mallon in World War 2. Retired teacher Mr Jay’s book The Mallon Crew covers the story of his own father Bob Jay, a flight engineer in the No 75 New Zealand Squadron, whose crew included pilot Bill Mallon. Barrie, a Lincoln resident, and Kevin, from Rolleston, grew up in Gisborne and New Plymouth in the 1950s, just years after their father returned from serving in the war with the Royal New Zealand Air Force. Kevin Mallon said he fondly remembers sitting in the cockpit of a Lancaster bomber, the same type of plane as the one his father flew in, about 10 years ago

FINAL MISSION: Lancaster AA-W on its final mission heading to Bad Oldesloe in Germany on April 24, 1945. Inside the cockpit is Bill Mallon (right) and Bob Jay. ​ with his father. It was during a visit to the Museum of Transport and Technology in Auckland. Mr Jay said his book is about a small group of unremarkable men “thrown together briefly” during the last months of the war and the way their stories have unfolded 70 years on. As they grew up, the brothers constantly asked their father about his service and his stories. He would tell them tales and take them to air shows across the country as they grew up,

which peaked Barrie’s interest in aviation. He works for Air New Zealand engineering and manages spare parts for aircraft. Mr Jay contacted Barrie Mallon in 2012 asking if he was the son of Bill Mallon. After four years of correspondence, they have never met and never spoken on the phone. “I’ve never met Vic, we’ve only emailed throughout the four years. But I asked him recently for his phone number,” he said.

Barrie Mallon said Mr Jay at one stage asked why his father had left the war so quickly to get back to New Zealand when the final mission was completed. “After their last mission, no one knew why he left (Europe) so quickly. I explained that he had two brothers . . . killed in the war and he was the [family’s] sole survivor. A petition was put to the New Zealand Government at the time by the local people of New Plymouth to bring him back,” he said.

Meetings planned for outlying areas „„ By Tom Doudney THE DISTRICT council has scheduled about half as many meetings next year, cutting back from two meetings a month to one. The district council will also hold three meetings outside Rolleston, a move previously signalled by Mayor Sam Broughton. Meetings will be held in Lincoln in April, Darfield in June and Leeston in September. The Malvern Community Board will do the same, holding four meetings outside of Darfield next year. They will be in Arthur’s Pass in February, Sheffield in May, Glenroy in August and Lake Coleridge in November. Mr Broughton said the district council meetings in Lincoln, Darfield and Leeston would seek to include items of local importance to each area on the agenda. The reason for cutting back to one meeting a month was because with two meetings a month, many of the agendas had not been very full. “To make better use of councillor time, we decided to have monthly meetings,” Mr Broughton said.

School prepares for milestone

Next year’s celebrations will begin on March 10 with open classrooms and a mix and mingle event. Then on March 11 visitors will be encouraged to enjoy the various activities on offer locally, such as golfing and mountain biking, before an evening dinner and dance at the Lincoln Event Centre. The fair, which will celebrate the history and traditions of the school, will take place on March 12, following a morning church service.

„„ By Tom Doudney TAI TAPU School will celebrate its 150th anniversary in March at its biennial fair. The school opened in January, 1867, only three years after the national education board was formed, with 23 pupils. Principal Andrew Barker said celebrating the school’s milestone was exciting. “The school has been a big part of the community over that time and although the township has increased, it has still very much got its rural flavour,” he said. The school had been based at several different sites over its history.

OLD DAYS: Tai Tapu School is set to mark 150 years. ​ It is reaching out to former board members, friends and pupils, teachers, Parent Teachother community members to er Association members, and go along.

•Anyone interested in attending can email their interest to 150thregistration@taitapu. school.nz

Looking back The golden wedding anniversary of Mr and Mrs George Foster was celebrated in 1913. They were married in 1863 and came to New Zealand in 1880 on the Edwin Fox. They settled in Springfield. They had 13 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. •Heritage photo supplied by Selwyn Libraries.

No Z Energy or BK for Rolleston „„ By Tom Doudney RUMOURS OF a new petrol station and fast food joint in Rolleston have had cold water poured on them by the companies involved. Rumours have been circulating on social media that Z Energy and Burger King planned to open on a shared site in the town. Z Energy spokeswoman Georgina Ball said the company would like to have a site in RollesMark Alexander ton but at this stage nothing was planned. “It’s a growing area and the roading changes will make it a good stopping place for people heading to and from Christchurch, but at this stage, we have no plans to build one,” she said. “We are, however, always looking for suitable places to build service stations and a Rolleston site could happen if we can find the right place to build and get approval.” Burger King general manager of marketing James

Woodbridge said there were “no details to share as we have not made any commitment to opening in Rolleston.” A district council spokeswoman said no resource consent application had been received for either a Z Energy or a Burger King in Rolleston. District councillor Mark Alexander said the town’s only current petrol station, Rolleston BP on State Highway

1, could sometimes be busy but it usually wasn’t too bad. It would be a commercial decision if another operator wanted to set up in the town, he said. “There is a business opportunity there but it is up to someone to grasp that,” he said. A Caltex diesel truck stop on Hoskyns Rd was opened last year. Rolleston resident Lynley

Shaw said it would be nice to have a petrol station on the other side of town but she appreciated that would come down to the business case for petrol companies. “I’d much rather have one that’s really good than two that are struggling,” she said. “I do think there is enough traffic that goes past . . . but to be fair, other than long weekends, I don’t have to wait too long [at the BP].”

SPORTS HAPPY FAMILY: Garry Jones, with his children Fraser and Kendall, collected more than $1000 worth of prizes from Selwyn Athletic Club president Gail Krsinic (right) recently after winning the club’s Mega Raffle. Raffle tickets were sold on club nights and at other events, such as the Rolleston fireworks night, to raise money for an all-weather long jump run up at Brookside Park. The prizes, including an HD television, Laser Electrical voucher, women’s running jacket, blanket and a variety of toys, were donated by The Warehouse South Island Distribution Centre and Laser Electrical.

New sports club will promote hockey „„ By Tom Doudney A NEW sports club has been set up to foster hockey in eastern Selwyn. While hockey would initially be the main focus of the Waikirikiri Sport club, it is intended to eventually include other sports which are currently not widely available in Selwyn. Waikirikiri Sport president Lyndal Marshall (right) said the club intended to enter junior hockey teams up to under-13 level into next year’s Canterbury Hockey winter competition. It would also offer a range of

programmes to develop coaches and provide support to high school hockey teams playing in Christchurch. “Hockey has been the driving force to get it going, but because there is such a demand for sports out here, we have set up the club in such a way that other sports can come on board in the future and give people access to other sports that aren’t currently out here,” she said. The district already has the Malvern Hockey Association, based in Darfield, and Lincoln High School has its own hockey

teams, and some residents in eastern areas play for Christchurch clubs.

Canterbury and the First World War Experience the personal stories of Cantabrians at home and on the front line

Eastern Selwyn has been short of facilities for players to practice on but the district council, with support from Waikirikiri Sport, will put in a half hockey turf at Rolleston’s Foster Park by early next year. This will be able to host junior hockey games and practice sessions for senior players. Mrs Marshall said the club aimed to bring the game to Selwyn residents who might not otherwise play hockey. “It will now become a feasible option for locals because the practice facilities are right here,”

Mrs Marshall said. The club will work with Lincoln High School, Lincoln University and the yet-to-open Rolleston College. Lincoln High School head of sport Craig Crawford said starting a new club from scratch presented some exciting opportunities. “From my school’s point of view, we are interested in seeing the game grow and be supported by the club,” Mr Crawford said. •Anyone interested in finding out more about the club can email waikirikirisport@gmail.com

Selwyn boys part of cup winning football squad TWO 11-YEAR-OLD Selwyn footballers, Finlay Cotton and Liam Murdoch, have been reunited with the trophy their team won a month ago in a gruelling four-day tournament in Sydney. Finlay and Liam were part of the Timaru-based Aoraki Football Academy team which won the Sydney International Cup in the tournament held at the Sydney Academy of Sports. The cup itself is now rotating around the Aoraki team, and will be in Selwyn for the next two months. Aoraki started the tournament strongly by beating runners-up from last year, Narrabeen Strikers, 4-0. They then progressed through pool play unbeaten, with excellent performances against the International Football School (2-0 win) and Soccer de Brazil (6-0 win). In difficult, hot and humid conditions in the semi-final, the Aoraki boys kept their nerve and beat Anderson Soccer Academy 3-0. Finlay had an outstanding game and scored all three goals. Against strong opposition, Aoraki did well to concede only one goal in all games leading up to the final. The team’s defensive strength

IN HAND: Finlay Cotton (left) and Liam Murdoch will get to look after the Sydney International Cup over the next two months, which was won by their Aoraki Football Academy team.

was due in large to consistent performances from its centre backs, including Liam. The final was a particularly physical game against a tough, technical and well-drilled Gold Coast United side. United went 1-0 up early in the game, and a rugged battle ensued as Aoraki tried to get a foothold in the match. With six minutes to go, Hayden Teixeira equalised for Aoraki after a goalmouth scramble. Then, as extra-time beckoned, and with only one minute left on the clock, Finlay leapt up to head home the winning goal from a corner. Coach Jaime Linton was full of praise for his Aoraki team. “It was a tremendous performance from the boys to handle

the pressure so well and come back from a goal down in the final,” he said. Linton, together with Jason Power, both of whom run the Aoraki Academy, planned the Sydney foray methodically but admitted the team had exceeded expectations in performing so well against high-quality opposition. Linton was particularly proud of the boys’ on-field and off-field conduct. “The boys learned heaps and we got lots of compliments from tournament officials and organisers about the boys’ behaviour. We’ve been invited back next year and, as champions, we’ll certainly be looking to go back and defend our title,” he said.

Withell wins Ellesmere Open for Lincoln A COUPLE of the area’s top ladies’ bowls players clashed in the Ellesmere Open on Friday, but it was Lincoln’s Lyndsey Withell who came away with the trophy. Withell defeated two-time defending champion Serena Matthews, of Southbridge, in the final at the Lincoln Bowling Club. Heading into the last three ends, Withell led 12-5, but Matthews drew on her experience, clawing her way back to go into the last round down just 12-11. However, Withell’s steady draw game had her holding the shot she needed with a bowl to spare. Matthews’ final bowl missed by a whisker to give Withell the win. Earlier, the day had begun with four qualifying games, which saw the field of 10 reduced to four semi-finalists. Both semi-finals were onesided, with Withell defeating Akaroa’s Melva Parke and Matthews beating Diamond Harbour’s Pauline Smith. No doubt Withell and Matthews will look forward to meeting again in two weeks when the open pairs competition is played in Diamond Harbour.

CHAMP: Lyndsey Withell holds the trophy she won after beating Serena Matthews in the Ellesmere Open on Friday.

Be alerted in an emergency Selwyn has its own community based emergency response support and notification network called Selwyn Gets Ready. The system allows people to sign up for free to receive alerts via text or email in an emergency. This alert system operates in conjunction with local volunteer networks who check on households needing support and provide assistance if needed or request help from Council where required. The Selwyn Gets Ready system was used last Monday to send warnings and advice following the North Canterbury earthquakes. To join this system visit www.selwyn.getsready.net If you or someone you know would like assistance and support in the aftermath of the recent quakes, there is help available. Please contact the Canterbury Support Line on 0800 777 846 (7 days a week 9am-11pm). If you would like to make a donation to support those affected by the recent earthquakes please visit www.redcross.org.nz

Real time travel information is now available to people travelling between a number of Selwyn towns and Christchurch city. New sensors have been installed on many busy routes across Christchurch city, Selwyn and Waimakariri. The sensors monitor travel times between different locations by locating Bluetooth IDs from devices inside vehicles and tracking how long it takes vehicles to travel between these locations. In Selwyn, the sensors provide live travel times to and from Rolleston, Lincoln, Prebbleton, West Melton, Tai Tapu and Christchurch city via main travel routes. Travel times by bus and bike are also provided for some routes, along with bus fares and estimated journey costs by car for comparison. Sensors to monitor Selwyn’s local arterial roads connecting to Christchurch have been funded by Selwyn District Council as part of a plan to provide more information for people travelling to and from the district. This information will also enable the Christchurch Transport Operations Centre to improve managing peak commuter traffic flows coming in and out of the city – for example, through improved traffic signal management. “We recognise the growth occurring in Selwyn towns and other towns close to the city and we want to make it easier for people to plan their journeys to avoid busier times and see what is happening in real time on the roads so they can make informed choices,” says Ryan Cooney, Manager Christchurch Transport Operations Centre.

Help shape Selwyn’s future environment and win! We are now surveying our community on what you would like our district’s environment to be like in the future. By entering the survey you can go into a draw to win one of 5 $100 prezzy vouchers. The survey is the start of a larger project 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 the environment. In this survey we want to find out what helps create Selwyn’s rural feel and what types of housing and sections people would like available in the future. The survey is available at www.selwyn.govt. nz/haveyoursay. It takes around five minutes to complete and is open until 4 December.

To access this free real travel time information service visit the Transport for Christchurch website www.tfc.govt.nz and select the ‘Current Conditions’ tab then the ‘traffic dashboard’ option. The website also has a range of other information including planned roadworks and updates on any traffic incidents which are causing delays.

Fire training exercise postponed A planned fire training at McHughs Forest Park from 7pm on Wednesday 23 November has been postponed. The exercise is planned to take place at a later date, and has been postponed as the Council’s emergency management staff have been busy assisting in North Canterbury following the recent earthquakes.

Meet your Councillor – Jeff Bland Jeff is one of four Councillors in the Selwyn Central ward, which covers Rolleston, West Melton and surrounding areas. He can be contacted via phone on 027 399 9206 or by emailing jeff.bland@selwyn. govt.nz. What do you hope to achieve while on the Council? I hope to see the Council complete the major commitments it has made to the people of Selwyn, for example implementing the Rolleston Town Centre Masterplan. I would like to see a mechanism in place to ease the financial burden that small communities face when building big ticket items such as community centres. I would like the Council to focus more on arts and our history - Selwyn is ready for this. An Arts Centre or Museum would reflect Selwyn’s growing maturity. What do you like about the area you represent? I love Selwyn Central. During the time I have represented it I have seen it grow, its demographics change and I have witnessed firsthand the area developing its own identify. The 150th celebrations reflected the community coming together to celebrate its past and present identity.

Road reconstruction work will be undertaken on Goulds Road and on Telegraph Road, (between Courtenay and Bealey Roads), with stop/go controls in place. Repairs are also happening on Deans Road between Auchenflower Road and SH73, with traffic controls operating. Resealing is taking place on Milltown Road, with stop/go controls in place. Footpath repairs will occur on Ellesmere Junction Road, Springston, and Greenan Place in Doyleston. Maintenance grading will occur in the Harper and Lindon Road areas, Dunsandel/ Te Pirita, Rolleston and Norwood areas. Following the official sod turning on 4 November, work is underway on the Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2. Site clearance and boundary fencing work continues across the project corridor with top soil stripping starting. Berketts Road will see earthworks and pavement construction. Tree clearing at the Rolleston end of the project will start around the last week of November. Keep an eye out for NZTA’s project newsletter due our shortly.

What do you think some of the challenges are Selwyn is facing? Keeping up with growth. The present high levels of growth won’t continue forever and we must spend the money we receive now wisely so we can leave Selwyn in a sound financial position with good assets ready to cope with the next 50-60 years.

Concert to honour iconic rock event

Adam McGrath

Delaney Davidson

Robbie Robertson and Levon Helm in what he described as “in their full strength” at Wembley Stadium in 1975. He said the music The Band played was extremely diverse, heartfelt music which influenced his own career of creating soulful, contemporary music. “It was a different era. Let’s be honest you know if you didn’t smoke grass or hashish well too bad because these joints were being passed around . . . that was the era it was in,” he said. Born in London in 1952, Jones moved to Southbridge about 22 years ago and played his first

Christchurch concert in 1988. In his time in the country, Jones has won three New Zealand music awards and has continued to perform internationally. He said he is touched to be chosen by John Simon to perform in The Last Waltz and will perform an array of songs including Forever Young by Bob Dylan, and It Makes No Difference by Rick Danko. McGrath said he was most excited about playing with some of his local heroes and watching Garth Hudson play. “It is kind of one of those great

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding PERFORMING IN tonight’s concert to commemorate legendary Canadian-American roots rock group The Band will be a trip down memory lane for Southbridge singer-songwriter Paul Ubana Jones. Jones, along with Arthur’s Pass musician Adam McGrath and Lyttelton musician Delaney Davidson, have been handpicked by original musical director and producer of The Band, John Simon, to perform in the 40th anniversary concert. It will honour The Band’s final concert at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom on Thanksgiving Day in 1976. The tour will travel around New Zealand and perform its first show at the Isaac Theatre Royal starring The Band’s original keyboardist Garth Hudson and John Simon. Jones first saw The Band at The Royal Albert Hall in London in 1966 backing up Bob Dylan at his infamous “Judas” show, where he switched from playing folk music to rocking out on an electric guitar.  He then saw The Band, made up of Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel,

800th pupil a milestone for Clearview

SCHOOLS

IN FULL VOICE: Senior pupils perform kapa haka. ​

DOING THE HONOURS: Linda Youl, representing the Ministry of Education, cut the ribbon at the main campus with year 8 pupil Gwendolyn Sidebottom.

Junior campus opened Lincoln Primary School pupil Shayna Early writes on the recent opening of new learning spaces LINCOLN PRIMARY School recently celebrated the official opening and Kaikarakia of their new learning spaces. A new junior campus site opened for instruction in the former Ellesmere Country Club building on Edward St, Lincoln, to house the students in years 0-2, while the school continues to grow and new buildings are erected. Pre-built modular buildings were also delivered to the main

campus last term to accommodate about 150 year 5 and 6 pupils who had spent the majority of the year learning in the school hall due to lack of classroom space. During the celebrations there were a mixture of speeches, songs, karakia and kapa haka performances. Teachers walked through the two buildings with local kaumatua to bless and place a protection over the buildings to keep them safe and make sure it is a safe learning environment for the years to come. Ribbons were cut at both buildings and they were officially opened.

Speakers included principal Viv Butcher, kaumatua Liz Brown, deputy mayor Malcolm Lyall, board of trustees chairperson Andrew Clayton and David Hoburn of the Ministry of Education. The school would like to thank its guests including local kaumatua, the board of trustees, Lincoln Primary School PTA, the Ministry of Education, the district council, Greenlinc, the New Zealand Principals Federation and other Lincoln Cluster schools. •Photos by Lincoln Primary School pupils Keanu Franklin and Riley Sutcliffe

„„ By Tom Doudney STARTING SCHOOL on Wednesday wasn’t just a milestone in the life of Timur Vassiliev (right), 5, it was a milestone for Clearview Primary as well. Timur became the school’s 800th currently enrolled pupil, the first time the school had reached that mark since opening in early 2010 with 170 pupils. Principal Rob Rush said he expected the school’s growth to hit a peak of about 830 pupils this year. With West Rolleston Primary School having opened this year and Lemonwood Grove set to open next year he expected the school’s roll would ultimately stabilise at between 750 and 800 pupils. “But you just don’t know,” he said. “There are just a lot of people moving to Rolleston.” The school had been built in several stages, originally catering for just 450 pupils with the addition of further classrooms since 2012 providing the extra space needed.

Most recently, four more classrooms were added at the start of the year. “We have always had space for the children and the continual growth and that has been a really good thing, we have been really well supported by the Ministry of Education,” Mr Rush (left) said. “But it has had its challenges in terms of making sure the classrooms were ready and making sure we had teachers and staff there.”

Travel

Sun, sea and surf on Hainan Kate Preece heads to Hainan Island to experience a luxury resort holiday, Chinese-style

FIVE STAR: One of the many luxury resorts in Hainan Island, MGM Grand Sanya was formerly Hotel Gloria Resort, the first resort in China.

Getting there: •Christchurch to Guangzhou flights operate Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. (From December, Mondays and Thursdays as well.) Flights to Sanya include transfer at Guangzhou/Baiyun International Airport. Contact your local travel agent or visit www.csair.co.nz to book. •Unless you are in China for transit only (less than 72 hours), a tourist or business visa is required. It will take three to five working days to be processed and must be applied for in person at the Chinese consulate office (106 Hansons Lane, Upper Riccarton), open Monday to Friday, 9am-noon. Applications aslo online at christchurch.chineseconsulate. org under ‘Public Forms’. Single entry is $140.

A THREE-course meal, a few movies and a glass or two of red later, a small travel group touched down in Guangzhou, 12 hours after leaving Christchurch. The flight was courtesy of China Southern Airlines, the service was enjoyable, and after a quick transfer at Guangzhou/ Baiyun International Airport, we were a mere 90min from sun, sea and surf. Flying into Hainan Island, the references to the ‘Hawaii of China’ are believable. Mountainous green hills give way to deep valleys, with ribbon-like rivers glistening down below. Around the island we circled, getting closer to the more inhabited eastern edge, where the popular city of Sanya unfurled before us. It is here that the luxury – and only – resorts in China are found, and where we were to rest our heads for four nights – in two of the area’s prestigious resorts. The island’s assets seem to be spaced evenly about a 30min drive from one another, therefore, it took such a time before we arrived at the MGM Grand –

originally the Hotel Gloria Resort, the very first resort in China. Greeted with lei-like flowers and a glass of the best coconut milk I have ever tasted, we were quick to immerse ourselves into resort life – swimming, sunbathing and ordering from the bar in a swimsuit. After tourism, agriculture is the second biggest industry on Hainan Island, with trucks transporting produce to ships, which carry on to mainland China. Crops include pineapple, coconuts, bananas, mango, which flourish in the year-round average temperature of 25 deg C. Rice, too, is a common commodity, which is why paddy fields are still in plain view when travelling between Yalong and Haitang bays. The endemic mountain rice is a short, fat grain known as shanlan and gives rice wine a purplish hue. It is, however, most favoured by the Li people, as a trip to Ganza Li Village – or the Areca Valley Tourist Resort of Hainan Ganza

LAWyerS

Ridge Primitive Culture – is quick to show. Akin to our own Maori cultural experiences, the village provides insights into a time gone by. Based on a village built 400 years ago, a theatrical show with a troupe of performers, fire, goats and ducks, showcased the traditions of the Li people. From the courting ritual, which involved the woman pinching the man-of-interest’s ear – the harder the pinch, the deeper the love – to the intricate weaving techniques that led to Huang Daopo (1245-1330) to popularise cotton planting in Shanghai, and improve the textile industry, it was a high-energy show that entertained young and old. You can also try their traditional bamboo pole dance – a fast-paced skipping act reminiscent of Elastics, yet with bamboo poles threatening to clap together on your legs should your rhythm be off. The joyous dance formed part of rice harvest celebrations. The food in Sanya is worthy of a long lunch.

Island – the ‘Hawaii of China’ Juice comes straight from gigantic green coconuts, is extracted from corn (served hot) or squeezed fresh from a cactus. Meat is served whole – fish, in particular, and the dumplings couldn’t be better. By the end of our trip, the menu du jour was sweet and sour pork, fried rice, pan-fried dumplings, and moreish vegetables. Spice fiends will also be satisfied, with the hot stuff part of the everyday menu. To experience something offthe-beaten track, take a trip to a fishing village. We arrived at one not long before sunset, joining a raft of boats making their way inland or heading back out, fully equipped with rows of squid lights hanging high above the cabins. The waterway was lined with restaurants. Those workers who don’t own a restaurant will take their hauls directly to the fish markets, but the rest are waiting for restaurant-goers to choose their menu. For us, it was swallow fish, which melted in the mouth after being boiled in stock on a burner atop our table. This form of ‘steamboat’ or ‘hot pot’ is classic Chinese fare,

Main attractions Nantian Hot Spring The biggest open-air hot spring in China, with mineral water of an average 57 deg C. Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone A Tang Dynasty-styled Buddhism theme park, at the foot of Nashan Mountain. Touted as the ideal ecotourism and spiritual site for Buddhist and non-Buddhists alike. Areca Valley Tourist Resort of Hainan Ganza Ridge Primitive Culture More than just a cultural experience, zip-lining through the forest would get the adrenaline pumping.

and the go-to option if you are to experience any Chinese barbecue buffet. With four days in Sanya, we experienced little more than a taste for this tropical oasis.

Flowering heroes in the sun Geraniums flourish in the heat and can make colour statements in a range of garden areas says Rachel Vogan

www.mainscapegardensupplies.co.nz

UP UNTIL very recently I have loved to loath old-fashioned types of geraniums. You know the ones – with that hideous smell, which makes some people sneeze or gag. The intensity stemmed from my childhood, when Nana had them planted all over her garden on the dry, barren clay banks of her garden at the head of Akaroa Harbour. Every time a friend would pop over and admire her garden they would be sent home with a pile of cuttings, often including geraniums. As her apprentice,

she would ask me to hold them, but the aroma would give me a sneezing fit and seemed to linger on my fingers for hours. But I sucked it up, as I adored my nana. Last season, however, I did a massive U-turn. I started growing geraniums in pots and in parts of the garden that struggle to get enough water and attention – basically in areas the hose doesn’t reach and in which the soil is so barren and hard I can’t get a fork in. And they flourished, so much so I am now a convert – as long as I do not need to go near them or touch

them, we get on just fine. Geraniums are one of the most widely grown and highly regarded flowers in the world. Little else can match them for durability and flower power throughout the year, blooming for over nine months, and in some cases in a sheltered spot all year round. Plant breeders have gone mad and bred piles and piles of new hybrid varieties. Many flower for longer, have brighter-coloured blooms, the growth habits are more compact and they seem to be more disease resistant as well.

gardening without guesswork Question:

When is the best time to fertilise my Rhododendron? Do they need a specific fertiliser?

Rhododendrons are acid loving plants, so they require a specific fertiliser that caters to this. Intelligro sells a fertiliser that is designed specifically for these plants, and is also suitable for your other acid loving plants such as Camellias and Azaleas. There are 3 main times to do this, in early spring, then again immediately after flowering, and again in early autumn. We recommend that you apply the fertiliser at a rate of 100 grams per square metre around the dripline of the plant (where the outer leaves are). When you apply the fertiliser, be sure to leave a ring around the trunk of the plant so the fertiliser doesn’t come in contact with it. After application, make sure you give it a good water. Unsure how much 100 grams actually is? An adult handful is approximately 70 grams.

Many also self-clean, so that when the flowers finish, the old blooms just fall off and new flower stems appear. These geraniums thrive in sunny, dry spots, and are ideal for those of us who may forget to water their pots. 5 WAYS TO USE GERANIUMS 1.  Patio pots, planters and window boxes. They thrive as container plants and, in most regions, flower from October until winter knocks on the door in June. 2.  En masse. Create colourful bedding displays. Allow 50cm between plants. 3.  Hanging baskets. The tumbling and ground-hugging varieties make brilliant basket cases. Make sure the basket has plenty of root room. 4.  Walls of colour. Look for the climbing varieties to cover banks and walls in cloaks of colour. Initially, they may need support to help them cling. 5.  Indoor plants. Every now and again, rinse them under the hose or shower to freshen up the leaves and they will more than likely bloom all year round. TREAT THEM MEAN Sounds terrible, but the less you feed geraniums, in terms of fertiliser, the better they seem to bloom. Therefore not a lot of extra food is required. GERANIUMS FOR FREE Geraniums easily root from cuttings or snippets taken from plants. Simply remove the lower leaves and place into a glass of water or pottle of seed-raising mix and within four to six weeks roots will appear. OFF WITH THEIR HEADS Pluck the tips out of new plants to encourage more side branching. These tips can be used as cuttings. DID YOU KNOW? Numerous types of geraniums exist, well over 400 species; a few include ivy, zonal, regal, cranesbill and numerous cultivars and named hybrids. CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT ‘Fairy White Blush’ is a pretty wee gem. It commands your attention with its multi-toned blooms; Look for tumbling types to plant in baskets and window boxes; ‘Vancouver Centennial’ has bright carmine red flowers and wonderfully contrasting green and plum coloured leaves; Pac geraniums are bred to flower for a longer period, making them reliable container options. OPPOSITE PAGE Flowering for over nine months of the year, geraniums pack a punch when planted en masse.

Er ere! Summ almost h is

And hopefully it brings with it some warmer and sunnier days. The downside to this weather however is that our gardens can pack a punch with a serious lack of rain, hot days and the potential for water restrictions. If you haven’t done so already, now is the time to get the garden sorted for the summer heat. Keep on top of the watering A good soak of water every few days is ideal. A light sprinkle each day is pretty ineffective and can cause the plants to only search near the surface for the water. Deep watering helps to encourage the plants to search further down for the water, which reduces the chances of the plant’s roots drying out.

add the bark! Adding a decent layer of bark mulch to your garden will be a huge benefit to your plants. The main reasons being it will help to reduce the weeds, conserve moisture in the soil (which is especially important through our hotter, drier months) and protect your plant’s roots from the weather extremes. All of this helps to give your plants the best chance at healthy growth, as well as improving the overall look of your garden. Intelligro have a great selection of barks and mulches, come down and have a look for yourself, or head to our website www.igro.co.nz.

It’s time for high tea Before coffee’s availability and popularity, tea was England’s drink of choice. In the 18th and 19th centuries, ‘high tea’ was an evening meal for the working class. It comprised bread, vegetables, cheese, crackers, or a pie and occasionally meat. Tea, which was a relatively expensive beverage, was drunk from a mug. The upper classes had two meals a day – breakfast and dinner around eight o’clock at night. To tide them over, afternoon tea became fashionable in the 19th century, served between four and six o’clock. When this tradition began is questionable, with some suggestions that it may have been in France, as early as the 1600s. Afternoon tea was a social event with a small snack served to tide one over until the evening meal which was a protracted affair. The term ‘high tea’ is thought to have been coined due to the different seating arrangements. The working classes ate their meal at a higher dining table whereas afternoon or ‘low’ tea as it was also called, was shared sitting in low lounge chairs. The adoption of the term ‘high

tea’ was a ‘trickle up’ effect, when the upper classes used it to refer to a more filling meal that servants prepared in advance, when they could not be present to serve a hot dinner. Added to the traditional afternoon tea, were cold dishes of game, fish and fruit. The correct way to hold a tea cup was with the thumb and index fingers where no handle or by the fingers on both sides of the handle of the cup. In each case, the little finger was stretched out to maintain balance while the tea was sipped. Frenchwoman, Madame de la Sablie was said to have introduced the practice of adding milk to tea in the 17th century; a custom readily adopted by the English. However, while tea was a popular drink on the continent, the English were the main tea traders. Today people gather for special occasions to share afternoon tea treats, now referred to as high tea. In New Zealand, sweet treats and sometimes savouries are served as high tea, generally in the afternoon though it might be at any time of the day. A Scottish high tea usually consists of muffins, scones and savouries. In America, there are three types

of high tea: ‘cream tea’ which in British terms is a Devonshire tea of tea with scones, jam and cream; ‘light tea’ consisting of tea, scones and sweets; or ‘full tea’ that has savouries and dessert as well. In Britain, a modern high tea may have three courses starting with savouries, petite sandwiches and appetisers followed by scones with jam and Devonshire or clotted cream, then sweet pastries, cakes, biscuits and sweets. Tea served at high teas today may be the traditional English breakfast, Earl Grey or another brew from tea leaves, herbs or dried fruits. Of course, it is now perfectly acceptable to drink coffee during one’s modern day ‘high tea’.

Sweet treats are now synonymous with high teas.

Fruit teas are also now served at a high tea.

Adding colour to the garden

Trees and shrubs provide a wonderful greenbelt around a property; many also add colour as they flower, fruit or the leaves change colour turning yellow, orange or red in autumn. A garden with colour has a special beauty. While most plants flower, some offer more brilliance and ‘wow’ factor than others. The slow evergreen growing Rhododendrons and Camellias put on a stunning show and are also relatively easy care. Rhododendron varieties can grow as low as fifty centimetres and up to high bushy trees of five metres. Their flowers may be white, pink, red, orange, yellow or mauve; forming anytime between September and November. Camellias generally have pink to red flowers and range in height from one and a half, to six metres. Mixing up deciduous, evergreen and flowering plants adds interest to a garden and there is likely to be some display of colour throughout the year. Supporting this can be ornamental red or silver Maples planted in a sunny or partly shady spot and Photinia that offer a display of red leaves for most of the year. In dry spots, Leucadendrons will offer colour with their yellow or red leaves with the hardy ‘Safari Sunset’ variety which may grow as high as ten metres putting on an impressive show of red. With spring, deciduous Magnolias flower before soft fresh green leaves form. Perhaps more impressive when flowering than its evergreen relative, the latter has in its favour lush deep green leaves. This is the time when your garden is most colourful. Rhododendrons and Camellias put on a show, Clematis vines

serve up large white, pink or mauve flowers and fruit and blossom trees such as flowering cherries and currants present a sensational display until the northwest winds whip through. Other shrubs that are ideal for a spring showcase are the deciduous Cornus which has a variegated form, Lilac, Rosemary and Forsythia, the latter being covered in bright yellow flowers before leafing. Lower growing frost tolerant, easy care evergreens such the Hawthorne, Berberis along with fragrant Lavenders and Daphne will also look good. Taller hardy and popular shrubs include the native Hebe, Pieris Japonica with its drooping clusters of white bell-like flowers, Viburnums and Bottlebrush, which serves up bright red flowers on Christmas to complement the lillies in the garden. Higher flowering growers that will also attract native Bellbirds are Kowhai, Dry loving Grevilleas and Banksias (noting that not all varieties of the latter two are frost Safari Sunset tolerant). Leucadendron Autumn will still have colour if there provide a touch are Fuchsias, Pineapple Sage, Dahlias and Chrysanthemums. All die back in winter of red to the but will put on a show of pinks and reds garden. through to yellows, complementing the turning leaves on deciduous trees and shrubs, with interesting bark and trunk formations taking their place to form a different landscape. Underneath, the easy to grow Hellebores will add a touch of colour over winter. Now is a good time to put in the plants that will bring colour to your garden throughout the year.

Furniture for the outdoors Outdoor spaces have become an important part of the home, with classy outdoor dining and lounge suites joining the more traditional garden bench, hammock and swinging seat. Furniture for the outdoors comes in all shapes, sizes and materials with many attractive options available. When choosing outdoor furniture, consider the family’s needs and where it will be placed. How many people will regularly share the seating? Will the furniture be exposed to the elements or be under cover and what will the furniture’s main purpose be? If the furniture will be truly outdoors then wooden furniture which can be reoiled or stained may weather better than upholstered or darker coloured woven rattan chairs. Seating capacity is also significant as is the furniture’s sturdiness if lanky male teenagers reside in the home. However, where large groups are regularly entertained, a supply of stackable chairs or asking people to bring camp chairs might suffice. Loose cushions will need storing especially over winter and purchasing a chest that lives on the deck or patio may take care of this and also hold extra brightly coloured cushions and throws. Foot stools and coffee tables are popular additions to the outdoor setting with novel variations on the theme available, such as a coffee table with a small fire pit. As with braziers, summer fire bans may preclude the use of these at times. A safer option for gaining warmth on those cooler

Canterbury nights may be an outdoor gas heater. Along with formal dining and lounge suites, an egg chair or swinging settee might be placed on the patio or deck, perhaps outside the main bedroom for a tête-à-tête moment while a small table and chairs could be sited to catch the morning sun for breakfast or a coffee break. Budget need not be an issue. The price of new furniture varies as does the size and quality while second hand furniture is available, with the Internet a good place to search. Some is like new while other pieces need re-staining, painting or repairs but cost a fraction of the price of new. You might also construct your own outdoor furniture using Manuka, recycled wood or pallets, or recycle other objects for tables and seats. These can augment and add interest to your outdoor spaces. If your property boasts tall trees, why not string a hammock between two for an affordable place to chill, away from the heat of the day. Around the garden, a wooden or cast iron/wood two-seater might also be placed in a sheltered secluded spot. Lastly, if cleaning is not a favourite pastime, consider the furniture’s composition. A hose down is likely to take care of dust but when rain water gathers and sits on the furniture it can lead to mould and lichen while insects can be a problem when they make their home in outdoor furniture with some serious scrubbing required especially where it is a woven material.

Eliminate bird spouting issues Birds can be an issue around the home; nesting in all kinds of places including roof gutters and under the eaves by accessing the roof cavity through the spouting. Once inside the roof, birds create a fire hazard as they bring material in, to build their nests while their eggs and hatchlings attract rats and mice. In the spouting, birds are a problem as they use grass and twigs to build a nest. This clogs up the gutters causing rain water to overflow and seep under the roof with the potential for water damage to the home. Birds also like to sit on the edge of a roof and their droppings fall on walls, windows and paths. “All these problems are avoided with the simple installation of Gutter Guard,” says Rohan, owner of Gum Leaf, South Island suppliers for Gutter Guard. “Gutter Guard prevents birds from nesting in spouting and under the roof. It also takes away a comfortable roosting area. As the birds cannot sit naturally along the roof edge, they tend to leave a house altogether. With no bird mess or droppings, a home looks tidier and there is less work in keeping walls and windows clean.” Gutter Guard is an expanded steel mesh product that has a surface like a cheese grater. It is produced from the same material as Coloursteel roofing so will last as long as the roof itself and as it comes in the same range of colours, can be matched

to blend beautifully with the roof of a home making it aesthetically pleasing. Gutter Guard’s louvered cheese grater surface ensures that leaf litter and tree debris slides right over top, keeping it out of the spouting and taking away the need to regularly clean out the spouting. Come winter you will also be pleased to have Gutter Guard as it strengthens the spouting to stand up to the weight of snow. Gum Leaf supply and install Gutter Guard. For those into do-it-yourself, Gutter Guard can be purchased direct from Gum Leaf with the information videos at http://gumleaf.co.nz/ making installation a straightforward process. Rohan is available six days a week and goes out of his way to be accessible to clients. If for some reason you do not reach him immediately, just leave a message. He will call you back very soon. Rohan also endeavours to call on clients within a day, offering free no obligation advice and a quote at the time of calling. His team are usually on the job within 7-10 days, completing installation in one to two days (depending on the size of the home). They will also travel to a job whether in North Canterbury or Oamaru. It is no wonder that Gum Leaf has many happy customers who have found Gutter Guard a worthwhile addition to their home. You can contact Rohan on 0800 486 532 or by emailing: rohan@gumleaf.co.nz.

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

Looking for a property – what really counts? You are in the market for a new property, scrolling the Internet, examining properties for sale and zeroing in on those with potential. They might be in locations that offer cheaper land, larger houses, or convenience to work or school. You may have visited show homes and open homes becoming confused, overwhelmed or swept away with emotional factors like having everything new, or extra features such as three car garaging. To be happy with your choice, list the features that you need, considering: • Family space – Is there room for the children to play indoors and for television and entertainment units? Should this be open plan or separated? • Kitchen – What needs to be in your kitchen? How serious are you about a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim or something that offers a practical solution to the way you use your kitchen? • Bedroom sizes – What are optimum sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate to slightly lower building costs while extra space can be useful. When looking at existing homes, consider whether the size of each bedroom is sufficient. • Garaging – A standard double garage once two cars are parked there offers little space for the toys. What toys do you have and could they live with the lawnmower in a garden shed, a cheaper option to three car garaging? If the budget allows and a larger garage with workshop is important, make it a selection priority. • Size of land – Lifestyle properties offer space for children, pets, hobbies, an expansive

garden and perhaps a home-run business but they require work so are not for everyone and a compact section might be more sensible if a tight budget or busy lifestyle. • Bathrooms – Second and third bathrooms are great in homes with teenagers and a wet shower room is ideal for young children. A bath might be fashionable though is often not used and its absence could mean a more spacious bathroom. • Laundry – Would a laundry in the garage do the job? • Storage – How much storage do you need? Weigh up what can truly be stored in the garage once vehicles are in, a preference in winter. Garages vary in size so check the size to ensure your vehicles will fit. Look also at where else the house offers storage capacity such as in hall cupboards, a large hot water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes (check their width and depth), walk-in robe, attic storage trusses, as well as the potential for hooks and shelving in the garage for bikes, tools, garden equipment and even kayaks. • Off-street parking – How many vehicles can be parked on the driveway? Will this space be sufficient? • Garden - Is there sufficient space for your children to play or for entertaining? A checklist will allow you to determine what will suit your needs, the point of the exercise, saving you time looking at properties or potential house designs while assisting you to decide whether to buy a new or existing home with both options having advantages and disadvantages.

Holden Colorado a versatile load carrier

„„ By Ross Kiddie WHEN MY daughter left home and went flatting she bought a new bed and mattress from a store in Blenheim Rd. Her flat was only one block distant in Riccarton so we transported the mattress on the roof of her trusty Toyota Celica – transport problem solved. But it was a different story when she opted to return home a few months later, our home is several kilomoteres from the flat and we had the mattress to transport. I thought I was being clever when I arranged to evaluate a Holden Colorado crewcab ute during the time the shift was in progress, I anticipated the mattress sitting neatly in the tray. Well, when the ute arrived it had a big aluminium sports bar across the deck and that prevented the mattress sitting neatly. But with a bit of Kiwi ingenuity and several ropes the mattress was secured and transported back to the Kiddie dwelling, but it was with much anxiety. Nevertheless, what the exercise did serve to prove is how adaptable the modern ute has become, it’s a genuine five-seater and has deck space which lends itself to multiple uses. The Colorado has just had a major upgrade from Holden, so much so that it could be consid-

• Price – Holden Colorado, $62,990 • Dimensions – Length, 5361mm; width, 1872mm; height, 1800mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, four-wheeldrive, 2776cc, 147kW, 500Nm, six-speed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 11sec • Fuel usage – 8.7l/100km COLORADO: Major upgrade for Holden’s tough ute.

ered a new model. Yes, the engine and driveline is pretty much a carryover, but the interior has had a major refresh, and the exterior gets a few cosmetic enhancements. As before, the Colorado lands in a multitude of two and fourwheel-drive variations – 24 in total – consisting of crewcab, single-cab/chassis and spacecab. The evaluation vehicle was a mid-spec LTZ with cab proper and it lists at $62,990, the range starting from $39,990. Under the bonnet sits a 2.8litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine. Most Colorados will sell with automatic transmission, as in the test car’s case, but a six-speed manual is still an option. As before, the engine has mammoth power outputs – 147kW and 500Nm (440Nm

manual), the latter available at just 2000rpm with solid turboboost to the red line. In terms of driveability, the Colorado is civilised and refreshing to be behind the wheel of, it drives easily with clean shifts. Unladen it feels quite spirited, it will easily claim an 11sec time to make 100km/h from a standstill and will lunge through an overtaking manoeuvre of 5.8sec. Not that acceleration is important to the Colorado’s role, but it isn’t a slouch and is comfortable at highway speed. The same can be said of its handling manners, utes are never the best in a corner thanks to the load-bearing suspension engineering, but the Colorado behaves itself reasonably well if a quick corner sneaks up, it is

receptive to steering input and directional change. Up front the suspension is by way of double wishbones, while a leaf spring located live rear axle props up the rear. The spring and damper rates are set far from firm, all the new age utes are compliant in the suspension and the ride in the Colorado is even, controlled and well cushioned from ruts and bumps. With 215mm ground clearance the Colorado is a bit of a master off sealed surfaces. The media launch for the new model incorporated a long drive through North Canterbury’s Lees Valley and an off-road excursion to a plateau high in the hills. The off-road section was challenging in terms of grip, rain had turned much of the track

to mud. It was a good test of the Colorado’s ability to put power to ground as grip in the soft, slushy stuff never appeared compromised. Holden has done well with exterior and new interior design, it looks dynamic from the moment of first glance, and the in-cabin environment is tasteful and functional. It also gets all the trick gear that Holden is building into its entire range these days. Items of note include the MyLink infotainment platform which incorporates Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, and all the safety kit to earn it an Australasian New Car Assessment Program five-star safety rating. Holden still rates the Colorado with a 3.5-tonne tow and 1-tonne payload figures, the deck area measures 1484mm x 1534mm which is about the industry standard for a double-cab wellside. That being the case, it is a serious load carrier and it does so with finesse. The changes Holden has made to the range bring it closer to car-like rather than utelike. That combination of ability and occupant-friendly in-cabin aesthetics is remarkable. And for those awkward loads like I experienced, it is a case of being downright versatile.

It’s Starship’s 25th birthday. So we’d like to acknowledge everyone who’s helped us reach this wonderful milestone. To our staff, donors, volunteers, corporate partners and, of course, our patients and their families - your support of our national children’s hospital means the world to us.

Built in 2006 the home comprises double glazing throughout with four double bedrooms plus an office, three bathrooms (two are en suites) and five toilets. There is plenty of space for everyone to spread out with three living areas, including a formal dining room downstairs as well as a balcony and sitting area on the upper level to enjoy the mountain views. The spacious kitchen has been updated to today’s expected standard with stunning white joinery and a stone bench top whilst a log fire and three air conditioners provide year round comfort. Generous garaging is available with an internal access triple and separate triple garage in addition to the 3-bay barn for the lifestyle equipment or recreational toys.
