Milk prices could put $140m into district’s economy Population accelerates „„ By Tom Doudney NOT ONLY is five-day-old Hadley Baikie the apple of his parents’ eyes, he is one of a rapidly expanding number of children being raised in eastern Selwyn. Hadley’s family, which includes parents Phill and Tessa and 21-month-old sister Tayla, live in Rolleston, part of an area identified by a new Infometrics report as the third fastest growing in the country. THe area, called “southwest Christchurch” in the

Regional Hotspots report, also includes West Melton, Lincoln, Prebbleton and Halswell. Based on projected population growth between 2013 and 2023, it predicted the area would have grown by 85 per cent in that time period, an increase of 22,790 people. Only Hobsonville in Auckland (up 254 per cent) and central Christchurch (up 105 per cent) are expected to have higher growth rates. Mrs Baikie said life was good in Rolleston. “I think it’s more country-like.

You haven’t got the busyness of the city, but it’s close enough to the city if you needed to get in there,” she said. “It’s quite family-orientated.” Mr Baikie has lived in Selwyn all his life and Mrs Baikie had been in the district since moving from Balclutha with her parents 10 years ago. After living in the area between West Melton and Templeton, they decided to build their first house in Rolleston about six years ago. •Turn to pages 4 & 5

„„ By Tom Doudney FINALLY SELWYN’S struggling dairy farmers can expect to have a little more cash in their pockets – and that is expected to provide a boost of about $140 million to the district’s economy. A new report from Infometrics has predicted dairy farmers will break even this season for the first time in three years, with an end to the series of low milk payouts within sight. The report said good spring rainfall in Selwyn meant pasture was heading towards summer in a healthy condition. “Dairy farmers continued to struggle through the winter, but

will be sighing with relief due to the recent rally in dairy prices,” it said. Infometrics senior economist Benje Patterson said this would be good news for Selwyn – and not just the dairy sector. “We have had more than a 50 per cent increase in the farm gate milk price so far this year in terms of the payout forecast, and dividends from Fonterra are also looking pretty good,” Mr Patterson said. “Our estimates show there is going to be about another $140 million pumped into Selwyn’s economy this dairy season if the payout ends up being $6.” •Turn to page 3

WE’RE GROWING fast in parts of Selwyn, in fact third fastest in New Zealand, latest statistics reveal. When you see the amount of housing going up, the new schools being built, and business coming into the district, it’s easy to see why Selwyn is near the top of the growth table. Today we have coverage of the latest figures on pages 1, 4 and 5 and we focus on one of the district’s brand new faces – fiveday-old Hayden Baikie. He’s come into a world where the pace of change will quicken incredibly over the next few decades with technological advances. But young Hayden will no doubt take all of these in his ever growing strides, as generations before have during the changes in their lifetimes. – Barry Clarke

Social media fuels rescue effort to relocate eels

LINCOLN’S FINEST SUBDIVISION

„„ By Tom Doudney SOCIAL MEDIA has been used to mobilise a rescue effort to relocate eels trapped in dried up stretches of the Selwyn/ Waikirikiri River. Volunteers, Department of Conservation and Environment Canterbury staff and Fish and Game officers spent several days last week finding and relocating eels trapped in a stretch of the river which extended both upstream and downstream from the State Highway 1 bridge. A post by Will Clayton in the Rolleston Community Page on Facebook was widely shared and more than 60 people commented with a number of people offering advice or reporting that they were heading down to help. However, reports suggested many eels and other species such as trout had already died by the time they were found. One person had found “78 dead eels, lots of dead small trout, and four very big live eels.”

SAD SIGHT: Photos of eels trapped in the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River, and others which were relocated, were shared to the Rolleston Community Page on Facebook.

Te Ara Kakariki Greenway Trust chairman Craig Pauling (left), also a former member of Ngāi Tahu’s Te Waihora Management Board, told the Selwyn Times the situation was pretty sad. He believed that the endangered longfin eels would be most affected as they tended to live upstream and would be trying to come down to Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere to migrate. “It’s about the right time of year for them to come down,” Mr Pauling said. “They could be very old,

perhaps at least 70 and they only go down to the lake once to migrate.” Mr Pauling, who camped on the Waikirikiri/Selwyn River as a child, said the flow of the river was not what it once was. Environment Canterbury team leader hydrological science Helen Shaw said the river was dry because of an extended period of drought which had resulted in very low groundwater levels. Drying reaches were likely to have a major impact on eel (called ‘tuna’ in Maori), particularly the longfin species which

penetrated many kilometres inland. “If tuna cannot return to sea, they cannot breed,” she said. “Unseasonably low flows will have an impact on fish populations and increase the likelihood of getting caught in a drying reach.” Department of Conservation biodiversity ranger Anita Spencer said the situation was concerning because longfin eels only bred at the end of their life and there had been few opportunities for them to make it from the top of the river down to the ocean, via the lake, over the last two years due to dry conditions. She believed the latest migration attempt might have happened when a period of rainfall briefly filled some dried out parts of the river before the water quickly receded again. “That was the problem, it rained quite a lot but not enough to keep it flowing,” she said. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Send your views on the drying up of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River to tom.doudney@starmedia. kiwi

Economy to benefit from milk prices •From page 1 Dairy farmers had been tightening their belts with the low payouts, which would have constrained some retail and wholesale spending in the district and may have contributed to the number of people seeking Jobseeker Support increasing by 6.8 per cent in the last year. “[Farmers] are not going to completely throw their money around like maybe a few years ago, but they are gradually going to spend a little bit more, particularly on things that they have been putting off for the past couple of years,” Mr Patterson said. Federated Farmers North Canterbury dairy chairman Michael Woodward said an increased payout would give farmers some peace of mind. “At the moment, we are still just waiting for Westland [Milk Products] and Synlait to come out with their updated forecast to see if they are on track with Fonterra,” he said. “Until the last lot comes through, we can’t count our chickens just yet, but it’s definitely a good sign at the moment.”

More people, more schools •From page 1 “We just wanted to stay in the Selwyn area, really, because both of us already lived out this way,” Mrs Baikie said. “We enjoy Rolleston, it’s quite family-orientated and everyone is so nice here.” The Infometrics report said the previously strong demarcation between Christchurch’s suburbs and the towns of Prebbleton, Lincoln and Rolleston had become less pronounced since the February 2011 earthquake and the construction of the Christchurch Southern Motorway. Prebbleton and Lincoln still had “a small-town feel” to them, but were expected to expand by 30-40 per cent each over the next eight years. Over the longer-term, development along Springs Rd was likely to see Prebbleton, in particular, become “more and more like a CHIPPING IN: Four-year-old Chinaku Mutonhoric lends a hand during the recent tree-planting suburb of Christchurch.” day at the new Lemonwood Grove School in Rolleston.

Its first secondary school, Rolleston College, and fifth primary school, Lemonwood Grove, will open next year. Seven years ago there was only one primary school in town. The numbers that the Regional Hotspots report put around growth in Selwyn and west Chrustchurch are huge. However, they come as no surprise to local residents, who have watched sub-divisions, shopping centres and business parks around them spreading upward and outward at a huge rate. Central Christchurch was also bound to take off soon, with many commercial developments cutting ribbons this year and moving trucks a regular sight outside new apartment buildings. But how long will it last? The report was optimistic: As more businesses moved west, it drew people to homes in the west. As subdivisions’ boomed, the demand for shops and business to service residents’ grew.

as parts of district booms It predicted that cycle would continue. Others are more conservative. When asked what he thought would happen in Christchurch’s future, Mr Cookson’s first response was that he was a historian: Crystal ball-gazing was not what he did. But if we were to learn the lessons of history, he said, we should look at transport. “I think there’s a real possibility we’ll reach the end of the satellite town development around Christchurch because the more you built out of town, the more traffic you get going in and out of town, so the more it becomes inconvenient. At that point, more people will move back into town,” he said. That cycle had been seen in New Brighton, which was a thriving shopping hub while it was the only place shops were allowed to open on the weekend. When nationwide Saturday trading was introduced in the 80s, convenience won out and its popularity dropped. The same thing was seen in the central city after cars became cheaper and more accessible. Suburban malls began to boom,

rebuild would be having an effect, he said. “They tend to live in areas New Zealanders will traditionally not want to live in, like high density areas they are often quite used to. And they tend to go to new builds, not the older, historic areas New Zealanders might gravitate to,” he said. Large businesses could also have a big effect, he said, because if they chose to base themselves in an area, they often brought with them employees who wanted to live and shop close to work. Hornby Quadrant development manager Kevin Arthur said there had been huge demand for commercial sites in the development, which runs between Main South Rd and Springs Rd. But a lot of the growth was due to the sped-up consenting process, he said. “We were eyeing Hornby for 10 years plus prior to the earthquakes, but to get planning consent for industrial development takes an awfully long time. In one case, it took us seven years. This short-circuited the whole system,” he said.

GROWING: With new homes built in subdivisions like Faringdon, the Infometrics Regional Hotspots report predicts a growing demand for shops and services over the next seven years.

as people no longer needed to take public transport into the central city. While the threat of another earthquake or a tsunami might have drawn people toward the

west, he believed that had less of an impact on people’s choices than other factors like good schools or convenience. Massey University pro vicechancellor Paul Spoonley, an

expert in demography, said there were several things that could dramatically change the shape of cities. The number of immigrants who moved to help with the

Bypass won’t benefit everyone

In Brief

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding POUND RD residents may have to put up with an increase of heavy vehicles past their homes daily as part of a plan to mitigate heavy congestion in the Hornby business area. A $15 million new bypass is to be constructed through Waterloo Business Park. As part of this work, the NZ Transport Mike Mora Agency plans to upgrade the intersection at Barters Rd, Pound Rd and Main South Rd to cater for increased traffic. Waterloo Business Park assistant Sara Harnett development manager Joel Webber said it was expected between 3000-5000 people will be working at the park when it is completed. Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board chairman Mike Mora said while the intersection would ease congestion, the new bypass will send trucks along Pound Rd.

YOUTH COUNCIL Applications for the 2017 Selwyn Youth Council open soon and the district council is calling on people aged between 14 and 24 to apply. The youth council is made up of 10 young people. Applications open on Thursday and close on December 9. For more information or to apply, visit www.selwyn.govt.nz from Thursday or the Selwyn Youth Council Facebook page.

PROBLEM SOLVED: Trucks will have an easy turn onto Pound Rd when a new bypass sends them through the Waterloo Business Park. But residents will have to deal with an increase in heavy vehicles daily. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

“If heavy trucks are coming from the south going north, they will either come up Main South Rd at least to Carmen Rd, turn left, and then head north. “They won’t need to with this new intersection at Pound Rd and Main South Rd in place,” Mr Mora said. The current traffic volume on Pound Rd is about 5500 vehicles a day.  But Pound Rd residents said it was hard to say how they would be affected by the bypass. Resident and Yaldhurst Residents’ Association chairwoman Sara Harnett said there would definitely be more

noise. “I hope there are not too many big trucks going there but there is certainly potential,” she said. Resident Debbie Payne said with Fulton Hogan Quarries Canterbury down the road they already had heavy loads going up and down the road.  She said it would be great when the traffic lights were put in because the intersection at Barters Rd and Main South Rd was a nightmare. A NZTA spokeswoman said, as of November 1, 2016, about 24,000 vehicles used the intersection at Main South Rd and Barters Rd each day.

She said there were 19 injury crashes at the intersection of Main South Rd and Barters Rd between 2011 and 2015. The project is planned to take 15 months to complete. Along with the construction of the bypass, stage 2 of the Christchurch Southern Motorway project has begun to improve congestion problems for motorists commuting between Halswell and Rolleston.

Chance meeting leads to New York show „„ By Annabelle Dick ATTENDING a cousin’s birthday party as a 14-year-old led Southbridge’s Jayde Vivian to an invitation to take part in one of the world’s most coveted fashion events. Jayde, now 16, has been handpicked to walk in several New York Fashion Week shows in February. She’s only been modelling for two years and never considered it until a chance encounter at the party. “THere was a girl from NZ Models & Talent at my cousin’s birthday and she came up to me and we got talking and she said I should model. She gave me the director’s card and it just kicked off from there,” she said. Now the Ellesmere College student will walk for the world’s leading and emerging designers like Vera Wang, alongside exclusive models such as Gigi Hadid. She’s one of two local models to be picked. Selwyn Times reported earlier this month that Lincoln’s Jaime Spencer, 20, will also walk in NYFW. THe pair are two of three New Zealand models who were chosen for the opportunity through the Ozlink Fashion Programme. Said Jayde: “I can’t really believe it, it will only feel real once I’m in New York. I feel so privileged.” THe pair will spend 10 days in

New York taking part in the major international Amit Singh Chahaun show, two boutique shows and two realway shows. THey’ll also get a city and studio photo shoot with a professional fashion photographer. “Going from little old Southbridge to New York is insane. If I got scouted it would be incredible,” she said. THis will be the first time she’s travelled further than Australia, and she says her parents aren’t too worried to let her travel abroad in spite of her age. “THey’re really excited for me, they’ve been so supportive,” Jayde said. While preparing for the New York events, the year 12 student is also just trying to get through schooling and finish her exams. “It’s been a wee bit tough but you’ve just got to prioritise,” she said. Jayde plans on studying business after leaving school. However, the pair both need to raise funds before committing to the trip. THe girls will be in New York from February 9 to February 22. •Help Jayde and Jaime make it to fashion week by donating through their Givealittle pages givealittle.co.nz/cause/ jaydeviviannyfw, and givealittle. co.nz/cause/getjaimetonyc

Police crack down on drink drivers POLICE SAY they will be carrying out more random patrols on all Selwyn roads over the Christmas and New Year holiday period – and the booze bus will be deployed in both rural and urban areas. They have partnered with the district council and licensed premises across the district in a Christmas-New Year drink drive campaign, saying motorists should be prepared for checkpoints and patrols anywhere, any time. The campaign encourages drivers to plan a safe ride home if they’ve had a few drinks this holiday season. While many people believed drivers who had been drinking had a lower chance of being stopped when they drove on rural back roads, this was not the case. “Police will be active in Selwyn operating check points and policing the roads in an effort to ensure that everyone is safe,” Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said. “Police encourage motorists to plan to have a sober driver and, if utilising licensed premises in Selwyn, to make use of the courtesy vehicles available.”

PICTURESQUE: This historic mansion in Darfield (above), and a Prebbleton home (right), were among 100 houses from around the country entered in the final of the Registered Master Builders House of the Year competition. However, neither came away with a prize when results were announced at a gala dinner in Auckland on Saturday. The Darfield mansion, renovated by Craig Brown Construction Ltd, was entered in the Renovations Over $500,000 category and has previously won one of two supreme awards in the Canterbury regional final for House of the Year in July. The Prebbleton home, built by DNA Structures Ltd, was entered in the New Home $650,000-$1 million category.

Bid to make better use of community space „„ By Tom Doudney SCHOOLS, CAFES and other businesses could be utilised to provide more community space. The new direction has been signalled in the Eastern Selwyn Community Spaces Plan which was adopted by the district council on Wednesday. A staff report which accompanied the plan said New Zealanders’ usage of space for community activities was shifting from the traditional community halls to cafes, markets, schools and other business and public premises. Most traditional community halls were no longer fit for purpose, inflexible, poorly equipped, had unused capacity and were disconnected from their surroundings. “There is unrealised and underutilised community space outside of usual operating hours in schools, cafes and other business premises,” the report said. “This [is] a step away from the current model which is heavily focused on providing more asset, not necessarily concerning

TIMES CHANGE: New Zealander’s use of community space is shifting away from more traditional venues like Prebbleton Hall (left), and towards other venues such as cafes.

itself as to whether that creates ‘waste’, or, whether the kinds of community spaces intended to be built will meet community expectations and needs.” Businesses making their premises available as community spaces outside of their normal operating hours could potentially be offered rates rebates or might benefit by providing catering services. Mayor Sam Broughton said the district council did not want to be

replicating facilities that already existed in the community. “The council has traditionally had a lot of halls but people don’t just meet in halls, they meet in cafes all the time and schools have facilities that can be really good for community use,” he said. “It’s about working with people who are open to the possibility of their space being used. That can be good for business if it’s in a cafe and it means council is not

spending money doubling up.” The plan calls for the district council to make seed funding available as a catalyst to activate use of community spaces. Things which might be funded could include the development of an online booking system, the management of community spaces and the introduction of programmes, festivals, art and functional landscaping. The district council’s own Rolleston headquarters would

be made available for after-hours community use, starting at some point during the next year, as a way of leading by example. Retrofitting some of the district council’s existing ‘not fit for purpose’ community buildings would also be pursued. Schools approached in Lincoln, Rolleston and Prebbleton had been open to further discussions about their use as community space, as had Lincoln University.

Exciting times in store for Rolleston District councillor Craig Watson writes about utilising older buildings when looking at town centre master plans Shortly is it expected that the Minster of Conservation approves the transfer of reserve status from Rolleston Reserve to Foster Park. This will give some drive to the implementation of the Rolleston Town Centre Masterplan. That is exciting. Rolleston can have a heart, a centre for it’s community and even more exciting it will help ensure that

Selwyn has a true retail, social, sporting and supply epicentre. I see Rolleston becoming like Oamaru for the Waitaki or Rangiora for the Waimakariri, albeit on varying scales from our regional friends. There will always be a reason to head into Christchurch, but hopefully less reasons over time. Let us be an independent Selwyn that I think we can be. We received an interesting pa-

per last week at council, entitled The Eastern Selwyn Community Spaces Plan, which you can find on the agenda page on the district council website. The paper was commissioned to help us shape our towns, it talked about (among other things) creating opportunities within existing spaces. That got me thinking. One thing that the Rolleston Town Centre Masterplan proposes is a new Library/Community Centre, one that is fit for the rapidly increasing population in the centre of our district. So what about the existing Rolleston Community Centre? The current plan proposes that the new centre will be on a different spot within the new

town centre and the current area becomes another commercial/ retail area, but do we want to put up another shop or do we want to repurpose the existing building? If we were to repurpose the building what big picture (but low cost) ideas could we come up with? Well here are a few ideas I have thought of to get the ball rolling. Ideas that I think we are missing in our fledgling community or ideas that might have been floated to me while campaigning and of course some ideas that are just plain left field ideas because, as a new community, I think we need to take a few risks to make us stand out a bit. So to get the discussion rolling (remember this is early days and

I am just one councilor throwing ideas out for the community to consider and feedback on) here are a few ideas to ponder and debate. How about a district museum to celebrate our heritage, an art gallery to celebrate our talent, a youth facility to support our growing 10 – 18 year old population, an above ground learn-to-swim pool to take the pressure of the Selwyn Aquatic Centre, a boutique movie theatre or a community theatre for local productions to feature the talent of our district? I am interested in knowing what you think? Please send me an email on CrCraig.Watson@ selwyn.govt.nz or on facebook on @Craig4Selwyn

News ECan opposes exploration

Road upgrade may be fast tracked „„ By Tom Doudney THE UPGRADE of an unsealed pothole-filled road in the heart of Lincoln may be fast tracked after its condition was highlighted in the Selwyn Times. West Belt, on the northern side of Gerald St, is unsealed on one side for about two thirds of its length. The district council had previously said it would look at upgrading it as part of its 20182028 Long Term Plan. However, district councillor Grant Miller said he and other local district councillors would be pushing to get the work scheduled as part of the 20172018 Annual Plan instead. “We believe it needs to happen faster,” he said. Asked if the work should have been done already, Cr Miller said: “It’s an easy shot to raise, because certainly I believe it should have been done, but what we are charged with is actually prioritising roads over all of Selwyn. “We have increased the budget substantially and we want to get roads like this done but we were charged with looking at roads all over Selwyn, not just Lincoln or Rolleston, so other roads have been higher up the priority list,” he said. “But that said, it’s not an excuse, and it is part of our plan to get it done and we will get it done as fast as we possibly can.” Deputy mayor Malcolm Lyall, one of three Springs Ward district councillors along with Cr

Miller, said he would support Cr Miller’s efforts to get the work on West Belt into the next Annual Plan. “In my long time on the council there have been a number of years that local residents have asked for that to be sealed and I am backing Grant in trying to get it brought forward to get it tidied up,” he said. “It also means that it gives us overflow parking for other events and things that happen in the community.” District council property and commercial manager Douglas Marshall said budget discussions on the next Annual Plan were let to happen so he couldn’t say at this stage how likely it was that sealing West Belt would be funded. The fully sealed portion of the road north of Gerald St was partially funded by the owners of The Laboratory bar and restaurant, which opened about a year ago, as part of resource consent conditions around car parking. Owners Martin and Lisa Bennett paid about $75,000 towards the overall cost ($230,000) of sealing the road and building a shared car park behind their building, also used by Lincoln Library and Lincoln & Districts Community Care. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What would you think of the district bringing forward work on West Belt to its next Annual Plan?

„„ By Tom Doudney ENVIRONMENT Canterbury has joined the Christchurch, Auckland and Dunedin city councils in opposing deep sea oil and gas exploration off the Canterbury coast. Regional councillors voted 10-2 to submit in opposition to the Government’s proposal to open more than a quarter of a million square kilometres of seabed along New Zealand’s east coast, including Canterbury, to oil companies. The vote came after a deputation by Oil Free Otautahi and climate protection organisation 350.org Christchurch. Cr Peter Scott and Cr John Sunckell voted against adopting the submission, while Cr Elizabeth Cunningham abstained. The submission raised concerns over the “very significant” environmental risks related to oil and gas exploration and requested that the Government give further consideration to its commitments under the Paris Agreement on climate change. It also requested that if the Government did go ahead with the proposal, then full public consultation should be carried out. At present only local authorities and iwi are able to make submissions. Cr Lan Pham (right), who tabled amendments to the submission which signalled ECan’s opposition to the proposal, said the 10-2 vote was heartening.

“In the past ECan had submitted but hadn’t really taken a position on it,” she said. “Now we are saying ‘look it’s our responsibility to protect our people, our economy and our environment’ and it’s through basically sending this message to the Government that these activities don’t constitute a sustainable future that we are actually representing the people and letting them have their say through us.” Oil Free Otautahi spokesman Charles Drace said the opposition from ECan and the other councils meant the Government must take notice. “For economic, environmental, climate and moral reasons, there is no alternative but to oppose deep sea oil drilling in the Pegasus Basin and hector’s and

maui dolphin habitat,” he said. Cr Sunckell declined to comment on his reasons for voting against the submission. “I had a view but that’s the vote so collectively that’s our position, so I support our position,” he said. Cr Scott said his opposition related to the process of the meeting rather than the content of the submission and in hindsight he should have abstained rather than voting against it. The district council’s chief executive David Ward said it had not considered the matter, therefore it had no position. Selwyn has about 40km of coastline, extending from Birdling’s Flat to the Rakaia River mouth, adjacent to a proposed offshore exploration area.

BUDDING FILM MAKERS: Lincoln’s MADE Awards recipients on stage at a school assembly.

Lincoln wins movie awards Lincoln Primary School pupil Holly Walker writes about the digital media awards her school won in the MADE competition The MADE (Movie And Digital Excellence) awards ceremony was held at the Baycourt Community and Arts Centre in Tauranga. This event was described as a red carpet event for the way people were dressed up. There was a guest speaker called Will Johnston. Lincoln Primary School did

very well. We received two first place awards, two second place awards and two third place awards. We had two teachers attending the ceremony – Mr Prisco and Miss Newton. They said they enjoyed the drum performance. The drums were made of containers. They also said that next year we could improve on our acting skills. The awards won were: •First – Year 7-8, Stand up, Stand up •First – Team 3 Green, 5 Freedoms for Animals

•Second – Year 7, Pay it Forward •Second for best actor – Angus Macaulay •Third – Year 4-6, The Pixel Graft •Third for best actor – Jay Dixon The prizes included trophies, two iPad Minis and technology vouchers. It was a night to remember for Lincoln Primary School. Well done to all who won a prize. Awards, certificates and prizes were re-presented to pupils at our school assembly on Friday.

PACIFIC EXCHANGE: Darfield High School recently received a group of 16 students and three teachers from its sister school in New Caledonia, College de Ouegoa. In 2013, the two schools developed an exchange programme for junior students. The schools take turns visiting each other in alternate years. During the five-day stay, New Caledonian students visited Castle Hill (above), the Canterbury Museum, the Antarctic Centre and a sheep farm. They also went on a jet boat ride and got to play in1 the snow – a11:51:35 novel a.m. experience as most of them had not touched NEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf 1/05/2014 snow before.

AGILE: Lisa, Bella and Emily on the high rope course at The Groynes.

Change to school camp plans doesn’t hinder fun A CHANGE of plan due to the recent 7.8 magnitude earthquake in North Canterbury meant West Melton School pupils spent a planned school camp on the outskirts of Christchurch instead of the Marlborough Sounds. The pupils had been due to travel to Mistletoe Bay in the Sounds but instead stayed at the Omaka Scout Camp near Sawyers Arms Reserve. Taking part in the camp was the pupils final William Pike Challenge activity. To complete the challenge, pupils must participate in eight outdoor activities, take up a new sport or hobby and do 20 hours of community service. The programme was created by William Pike, who, in 2007, was

one of two climbers caught in a volcanic eruption on the slopes of Mt Ruapehu. As a result of his life threatening injuries, his right leg was amputated below the knee and he required extensive rehabilitation. During the camp, the pupils completed a difficult high ropes course at The Groynes, which they walked one and a half hours from their camp to get to. The pupils also went sailing on Lake Roto Kohatu and, on a day which was pouring with rain, were given the challenge of building a bridge across a stream with tubes, a plank and ropes. They spent their down time playing games, rubber tubing, exploring and feeding eels.

Our People

Guido Schromges

Butcher brings a corner of Guido Schromges owns the Deutsches Eck German Butchery in Lincoln. He spoke to Tom Doudney about the meaning of the shop’s name, being robbed in South Africa and digging water holes for elephants in Botswana What does Deutsches Eck mean? Directly translated it means ‘German corner’ and it originates from my home town where the two biggest rivers of Germany flow together and it has always been called, in history, the German corner or Deutsches Eck. What rivers are those and in what part of Germany? That is the Rhine and Moselle River and they come together in Koblenz, that is 100km north of Frankfurt. What sort of differences would people notice between a German butchery like yours and other local butcheries in the Christchurch area? I guess the produce range in general, the looks of the products and, of course, the ingredients are much, much different compared to the other butchers because I don’t use any type of fillers in the form of starch, gluten, mechanically deboned meat, colourings and so on.

What would be some of your speciality products? On the fresh sausage side, there is the bratwurst, the traditional German sausage – that’s by far the best selling sausage. And on the smoked side, it’s the Polish sausage, which is actually a garlic sausage. My bier sticks are also very popular. What led you to move to New Zealand from Germany? No, no, I am German, but I lived in South Africa and then it got a little bit too out of control with the crime. I was four times involved in an armed robbery and I thought, ‘OK, it’s time to leave,’ and 11 and a half years ago I came to New Zealand as a consultant to the meat trade, working in Auckland for a local company. Over what sort of time period were you robbed four times? I would say in the space of five years. That would have been pretty scary I would imagine?

WITH A SMILE: He’s lived in Germany and South Africa but butcher Guido Schromges has called Lincoln home for 12 years and says he is here to stay. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Well, let’s put it this way – the last one that broke the camel’s back was somebody put a gun behind my ear. They make you kneel down and then you think it’s time to move on, you know. There was that experience and then I started looking for opportunities and New Zealand came up because a company wanted to introduce concentrated spices from overseas.

What led you to move to Lincoln? The butcher’s shop that I bought, that was the best option for me. Lincoln has got a high school, a university, the research centre. So for me, as a German butcher, it was the niche marketplace because you had lots of international people at these schools, university and research centre. I came six

months after the [February 2011] earthquake. Were you looking at advertisements for butcher’s shops all around the country at that point? Because I was working down in Invercargill at the time, I was looking down in that region but it was hopeless, there was absolutely nothing available that suited the purpose.

Germany to Lincoln How long did you live in South Africa? As a butcher, 20 years, as a child, five years, so altogether 25 years. You were born in Germany, right? I was born in Germany, but then for five years in the 1960s my parents moved to South Africa. But then we moved back to Germany, where I learned the trade and everything and what is connected to it. Once I earned money, I went to visit my school mates in South Africa and then somebody offered me a job that was too good to refuse so I relocated in the middle of the 1980s back to South Africa. It was very easy because I had permanent residence. What was the job that was too good to refuse? Production manager of a South African firm which specialised in German small goods. What part of South Africa were you in? Johannesburg. Before the crime got the better of things was that a nice place to live? Yeah, that was in the middle of the 1980s, in 1984, and then

HOMELAND: Guido Schromges’ butcher’s shop Deutsches Eck takes its name from the place in Koblenz, Germany, where the waters of the Rhine and Moselle rivers meet.

the change over came and everything was fine, but then somewhere around 1999 or 2000, I had the first bad experience and then it continued and then, in 2005, I simply said ‘that’s it’ and I left. What was it that had led your parents to move the family there in the 1960s? Better money. In the 1960s, the money was basically the top range in South Africa. My father was a panel beater.

Do you travel back to Germany much? Due to the age of my parents, I have gone every year and I will continue to go back as long as my mother is still alive. Do you ever feel homesick for anything in Germany? No, it’s too long that I’m gone. I’m happy here and I guess it’s my final destination. No more relocating. I’m here to stay. I know football is a big deal in Europe and a bit in South

Africa as well. Are you a football fan? Yes, I still check on the internet results from Europe and the English and German champions’ leagues, especially the German. What’s your team? Bayern Munich. Have you seen them play? Forty years ago I was once in Munich to watch a game but nothing recently. How old are you now? Fifty-seven. What are your hobbies outside of work? Long distance running. Did you used to do that competitively? I did, but once I got the shop I stopped. I am still running on a daily basis if I can afford it timewise, but nothing major any more. Not like the old days in South Africa when I was running one marathon after another. Did you ever win any events? No, in my age category, I won a couple of prizes but I never won any event. It was only my age category that I came first, second or whatever in a couple of marathons. Anything else you like to do with your spare time?

The butcher’s shop keeps me occupied and therefore I go running just to switch off and, if I’m on holiday, I like adventure sports and, in Africa, I liked wildlife. You must have seen some impressive wildlife over there? Oh, well I travelled the southern continent, every country south of the equator I have been. What’s the most impressive animal that you saw? The best thing was in Botswana, in the Okavango swamps, digging water holes for elephants. While the elephants were watching, we were digging, you see. Did you have much interaction with the elephants? No, we kept the distance, or they kept the distance. As soon as we left the place they came and sucked everything up that collected in the groundwater hole. Was that a tourism experience? No, no. As tourists, we went there and we knew the camp owner so we gave him a hand. That was a matter of coincidence, it was not the way we planned it.

Join the Selwyn Youth Council!

Projects underway

Applications for the 2017 Selwyn Youth Council are now open. Youth Council members can encourage young people to participate in local decision making and ensure that their views are taken into account when planning projects that affect them, like town centre works, local parks, pools, libraries and events.

for local schools

Anyone aged between 14 and 24 who lives in Selwyn can apply. Applications close Friday 9 December. For more information visit www.selwyn.govt.nz or the ‘Selwyn Youth Council’ Facebook page.

Two new schools open next year and work is currently underway to improve connecting roads and footpaths. To prepare for the opening of Rolleston College in 2017, Broadlands Drive has been extended to meet Springston Rolleston Road and a new roundabout installed at this junction. A new footpath has been completed along Springston Rolleston Road linking the school to central Rolleston. This work has been completed by the Council and contractors to the Ministry of Education. Rolleston College’s location at Foster Park will allow the school to use the park’s playing fields and the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. Lemonwood Grove School will also open next year. Contractors to the Ministry of Education are now working to seal East Maddisons Road between Goulds and Selwyn Roads. A new footpath will also be installed along the road and kerb and channel work completed. The Goulds and East Maddisons Road intersection will also be upgraded. Additional work is also planned at West Rolleston School which will be funded by the Ministry of Education and the Council. This work is planned to take place over the summer holidays and will include developing new footpaths along Brookside Road and Dunns Crossing Road by the school, installing more lighting, completing kerb and channel work and establishing a kea crossing. Work also recently began to underground the water race on Tennyson Street between Byron Street and Rolleston Reserve. This will allow additional parking to be developed along the road and a new footpath to be created outside Rolleston School. Later work is planned to underground the remaining section of water race to Lowes Road. This is part of a wider work programme for the Rolleston Town Centre project to upgrade Tennyson Street and add attractive paving, street trees, and parking. As part of the Rolleston Town Centre plan the Council wants to develop part of Rolleston Reserve into a shopping area and location for a new library, with the remaining section of the reserve redeveloped into a high quality urban reserve. Undergrounding the water race will also allow a new roundabout to be installed at the Tennyson Street/Kidman Street intersection. New kea crossings were also installed at Ladbrooks and Kirwee School this term, and a crossing is also planned for West Melton School in the future. School students and parents operate the crossing points, with the Council and Police supporting the establishment of the crossings. The Council recently appointed a new School Road Safety Coordinator who will be working with Selwyn schools on a range of projects.

Meet your Councillor – Murray Lemon Murray is one of two Councillors in the Ellesmere ward, which covers Leeston, Southbridge, Dunsandel, Doyleston and surrounding areas. He can be contacted on 027 541 3305 or by emailing murray.lemon@ selwyn.govt.nz. What is your background? I am a life long resident of Killinchy. I attended Leeston Consolidated School and Lincoln High School before working on a mixed sheep and cropping farm. I then completed an Electrical Apprenticeship with local Firm Nairn Electrical. For the past 30 years I have worked as an electrician including 11 years as a self-employed contractor and employer. I also have a background in health and safety coordination and apprentice training. I am married to Maree with three adult children. How have you helped people in the past? I have been involved in a range of community groups including tennis, rugby and swimming committees, Ellesmere Lions, and have been on Killinchy Hall committee for over 20 years including 10 years as Chair. I am also a trustee of Ellesmere Heritage Park and have been a trustee of Leeston Consolidated School for nine years (three as chair) and I am currently in my fourth year as Chair of Ellesmere College Board of Trustees. Politically I am an egalitarian with no formal connection to central government political parties. I believe in equality of access to opportunities for everyone. I think to effect change you must engage with the community and become part of the process of changing outcomes. I have a passion for family, education, rugby, tennis, gardening and motorsport.

Rain during October and November has meant there is lots of growth around our district. Conditions are expected to dry out in December, increasing the fire risk. If you have long grass on your property, now is a good time to either mow it (see advice below about suitable days) or graze it. Over summer we will be using the Council website to issue advice when the weather means the fire risk is extreme in Selwyn. The fire risk varies day to day and when strong winds combine with hot weather the fire risk becomes extreme. When this warning is issued we recommend that you: · don’t light outdoor fires and check that any previously lit fires are fully extinguished · be careful when operating outdoor machinery as a spark could easily ignite. You should also be ready to extinguish a fire if needed To sign up to receive extreme fire weather alerts via email please join www.selwyn.getsready.net and select the ‘Fire Risk Alert’ option. Fires can endanger lives and be costly. We encourage you to check our website every day over summer and autumn to see if the fire warning (which appears as the red banner below on our website homepage) is in place and follow our advice if it is.

Leeston-Southbridge through to final after close match LEESTON-Southbridge haVE advanced to the Canterbury Country Premier one-day final after defeating Lincoln by 22 runs in their semi-final at Leeston Park. Leeston-Southbridge will meet Sefton in the final at Rangiora’s Mainpower Oval on December 18. Sefton booked their spot after defeating Southbrook by 78 runs. Batting first Leeston-Southbridge were struck an early blow with the loss of opener Josh Lensen in the first over.

However, it was the batting side that took control from then on with Toby Doyle and Harry Chamberlain combining for a 199-run second wicket partnership. Doyle stayed unbeaten throughout the whole innings, finishing on 102 not out as Leeston-Southbridge finished on 241/3 from their 45 overs. Lincoln’s reply got off to a steady start through openers Richard Clark and Jake Schwass who got the score through to 22 after five overs. Lincoln then lost three wickets for just seven runs

and found themselves having to rebuild at 29/3. All-rounder Jeremy Benton glued the Lincoln innings together with an inspired knock of 103 from just 110 deliveries. However, with the next best individual score just 22, he struggled for partners during the run chase. Lincoln were eventually dismissed for 219 in the 44th over. Right-arm fast bowler Harrison Cox did the damage for LeestonSouthbridge, taking six wickets for 28 runs at an average of 4.67.

POWER: Leeston-Southbridge’s Harry Chamberlain smashes a ball through the covers off the bowling of Arthur Patterson. PUT AWAY: Lincoln’s Reuben Craw bowls short outside off-stump to Toby Doyle. Doyle scored 102 not out.

STRAY THROW: Lincoln’s Jeremy Benton reaches out as he backs up a throw at the wickets..

IN FLIGHT: Lincoln’s Jeremy Benton bowling to Leeston-Southbridge’s Harry Chamberlain.

FULLY COMMITTED: Leeston Southbridge’s Toby Doyle puts his body on the line to slide home.

LEAN INTO IT: Leeston-Southbridge’s Toby Doyle players a beautiful shot through point on his way to a century.

OUT: Lincoln’s Matt Benton catches Harry Chamberlain for 92 off the bowling of Arthur Patterson. PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY

GOOD TECHNIQUE: Lincoln’s Nico Lern stopping the ball in the outfield.

HITTING OUT: James Pearson scored 65, his first senior half century, in Halswell’s loss to Sumner on Saturday. PHOTO: JUNE PEARSON

Halswell make final of one-day knockout cup HALSWELL WILL face off against Hornby in the final of the Chairman’s Cup knockout one-day cricket competition on Waitangi weekend after beating Merivale Papanui at Edgar MacIntosh Park on Sunday. Merivale Papanui batted first, finishing on 169/8 from 40 overs. Hunter Rowe (2-20) and Leighton Johnston (2-43) were the best of the Halswell bowlers. Steve Golding then starred for Halswell with the bat; his 71 not out

guiding his team to 170/5. The result was contrasted by the previous day when Halswell lost its Skilton Trophy one-day match against Sumner at St Leonards Park. Halswell batted first after winning the toss and got off to a solid start, reaching 40/1 after 13 overs, but then lost three wickets for 10 runs to be 50/4. Blair Cotching then hit three sixes and a four in a quick 22 but, when he got out, Halswell lost another three wickets for five runs to be 86/7.

James Pearson batted well to score his first senior half century and pushed Halswell to 185 with Pearson being the last man out on 65. Halswell started well in the field having Sumner 7/2 but the home side batted very well, rotating the strike and putting away the loose ball to the boundary, on the way to 186/4. Dayle Eathorne (2-28 from eight overs) and Johnston (1-12 from nine overs) were the best of the Halswell bowlers.

Crusaders confirm Darfield visit SOUTH ISLAND Super Rugby supremacy will be on the line again this February when the Farmlands Cup goes up for grabs in a pre-season match in Darfield. Following on from the success of the inaugural Farmlands Cup fixture hosted by the Highlanders in Waimumu, Southland,

in February, the Crusaders will play host to their southern neighbour at the Darfield Domain on February 4. The Selwyn Times reported in October that the match was in the works, but now the Crusaders have made it official. Crusaders chief executive Hamish Riach

said the event was a hit amongst the rural community last year and they were thrilled to have the opportunity to continue the new competition. Farmlands shareholders, local junior rugby clubs and Crusaders season ticket holders will be able purchase early tickets.

CHAMPIONS: The Ellesmere College team of Ben Smith, Ben Legg, Nathan McKenzie and Ben Michael (left) won the boys’ tennis competition at the Canterbury Primary Schools’ Summer Tournament recently. Ellesmere College also won the boys’ cricket competition, with manager Jack Dawson and players Nathan Chalmers, Jared Poole, Caleb Webber, Sam Dawson, Brae Hamilton-Currey and Oliver West (above middle) taking the title. Meanwhile, the Prebbleton School team of Caleb Gourley, Adam Finnie, Daniel Marsh and Jonty Cook (above right) won the mixed golf competition. The tournament, held in Christchurch, saw 612 pupils from 24 schools compete in softball, tennis, golf, kiwi tag and cricket.

First-time win thrills Tai Tapu bowlers „„ By Karolyn Boon TAI TAPU have won Ellesmere Bowls’ Chatterton Cup competition for the first time in its 11-year history Going into the last round on Saturday there was still a chance that Diamond Harbour could take out the competition. But when Tai Tapu trounced Leeston 2 by four games to none in trying conditions it gave them an overall score of 54, ahead

of Diamond Harbour’s 49. The win was a big reward for the small club of 29 members that includes social players. A factor in the win is surely being able to keep the same combinations each week. It is the first time that Tai Tapu have managed to win this trophy and they are thrilled to do so. Results Rooster: Lincoln 2, 4 beat Southbridge, 2; Tai Tapu, 4 beat Leeston, 2.

Gardening

MAINSCAPE

A water feature has many benefits A WATER feature in the garden gives a different dimension and adds value to your home. Apart from it having a cooling effect that is soothing for the soul, the sound of gurgling water has a meditative, relaxing quality about it. Water can enhance any garden and when used effectively, has the power to attract the maximum attention compared to any other garden feature. In smaller gardens where space is a constraint, water is best used in conjunction with a sculptured feature or a fountain, or a little rock garden which could easily be the focal point of your little stretch of paradise. If you do happen to own a bigger garden, a free flowing pond could work wonders. There is a lot you can play around with, in terms of plant and marine life that can add to its visual appeal. The added advantage being, fish can get rid of the mosquito menace. To increase the darkness or depth of the colour of water, you can dramatise the effect by using dark, large leafed evergreens. The shape and style of your water feature will be dictated

largely by the site itself and whether you want to just get wet and play with the family or just add aesthetic appeal to your home. Style will depend on the architecture of your house, the shape and contours of the site and the character and dominance of the surrounding landscape. Simple shapes are usually the best for garden ponds. They generally look best, cost the least to construct and are the easiest to maintain. If you are unsure about the shape

or size, consider consulting a good landscape designer or landscape architect. The best way to decide on construction materials is to discuss their various merits with experts in hydraulics, pool contractors and friends with existing pools. Initial cost, ongoing maintenance and visual appeal should all be considered. Once you’ve decided on the kind of water feature you want, you may need to decide whether the water is flowing or static.

december Plant Care

December is a great time to tend to your beloved citrus plants and roses. Here are some quick tips to get your plants in top shape ready for the summer months.

Summer is a great time to fertilise your citrus trees. Adding these vital nutrients will help them grow to their full potential, producing juicy fruit for you to enjoy. Intelligro Citrus Fertiliser is packed with all the essential nutrients these plants require, with extra potassium and magnesium which they need. Citrus require more watering over the next few months so make sure that you establish a regular watering pattern. Give them a good soak every few days rather than a light sprinkle each day. Keeping the citrus well-watered will give them a better chance of keeping insect pests and diseases at bay. Make sure you tend to your roses by deadheading them regularly. This helps to promote new growth and get more out of your plant. While you are at it, give them some fertiliser to help boost their growth and give them the nutrients required to produce their beautiful blooms. application: Young - mid age bushes: Apply 100 grams per square metre For well-established bushes: Apply up to 200 grams per square metre. When applying, sprinkle the fertiliser in a ring around the stem of the plant. Ideally the ring will be approximately 30cm away from the stem. Ensure you water thoroughly after application.

In a pond it’s easy to achieve moving water on a small scale with a low voltage water pump. Don’t forget to take into account the safety factor for kids. Another important factor you should take into consideration is the ease of cleaning and general maintenance. If in doubt, keep it simple. A shallow sheet of reflecting water can be as stylish and far less work to keep looking good. Shallow water and dark colours are the key to good reflections. Whatever its size or style, a water feature certainly makes the garden very attractive, adding elements of beauty, sound and reflection to the landscape.

While you’re at it…

If you have other plants in pots, containers and hanging baskets, give them a feed of Intelligro Topdressing Fertiliser. This will help give them the nutrients they need to keep flowering, or producing fruit for you. Don’t forget to give them a good water afterwards! If you are wanting to add some colour to your garden you can plant these now; begonias, petunias, impatiens, calendula, and dahlias, to name a few. Add some organic compost to your garden beds to give them a much-needed boost. Finish off with a 5-10cm layer of bark to help keep the weeds down, as well as retain moisture in the soil.

Staff shuttle service

From pig farmer to top accountant

A shuttle service provided by dairy company Synlait removes an estimated 360 cars a week from SH1/ Main South Road, one of Canterbury’s busiest roads, improving road safety for all users of the road. Introduced on August 1, it provides employees with a free daily round-trip shuttle service from Rolleston to Synlait’s Dunsandel site, 50km south of Christchurch, several times in the morning and evening. A new 50-seat coach, which arrived on November 10, will replace a temporary coach, which has operated for the last three months. “Everyone home safe, every day, is our number-one priority. Our shuttle service supports this focus by reducing traffic on Main South Road (SH1) and also has a positive impact on the environment,” managing director and CEO John Penno said. “Many of our employees live in Christchurch, Rolleston and the wider Selwyn region. Initiatives like this improve road safety not just for our team, but for everyone on the road.” On average, 72 cars are removed from Main South Road throughout each weekday, particularly during peak morning and evening traffic times. The environmental benefit* is estimated to be the equivalent of planting 1255 trees, or eliminating 25 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, a year. Mr Penno noted the figures would increase as more employees took advantage of the shuttle service. “Our team has almost doubled in the last two years to more than 430

A Leeston accountant has recently been awarded the Massey University prize of Top Accountancy Graduate for 2015. Lay Associates accountant Simon Dunlop also received the prestigious Dean’s Scholar Award for 2015, one of only 15 Massey business graduates who average A-grade or higher, out of a pool of about 11,000 business students enrolled at the Massey Business School. Accounting was not Simon’s first career – he comes from a farming background, where he spent his earlier working life heavily involved in pig farming. Having a keenness for the analytical side of the farming business prompted him to commence further studies, culminating in the attainment of his Bachelor of Accountancy from Massey. Simon works as an accountant in Leeston for Lay Associates and is studying towards his Chartered Accountancy qualification. He also supports his wife Lynne with her accounting needs in her business, Leeston Pharmacy.

people. With our next growth phase – a three-year, $300 million programme – underway we’ll continue investing in our team,” he said. Synlait’s transport partner, Hilton Haulage, operates the shuttle service and oversaw the delivery of the new coach. “It’s a great coach that will make the round trip even more comfortable and relaxing for employees. It’s been a rewarding project and is just one example of how we partner with our customers to achieve an exceptional result,” CEO of Hilton Haulage Scott Crampton said. Synlait acknowledged that support from both Hilton Haulage and Selwyn District Council made the shuttle service possible. *Figures based on Monday to Friday shuttle usage since August 1, 2016. Average car emissions calculated as 206.649 CO2 grams / km (9 L / 100 km efficiency) and coach emission calculated as 885.7 CO2 grams / km (34 L / 100 km efficiency). Average tree absorption of CO2 calculated as 20.3 kg of CO2 / year.

Michael Lay, Director of Lay Associates says he is lucky to have someone of Simon’s calibre on the team. “He brings maturity, a strong background in agri-business and an outstanding academic record. What more could you want for a rural practice. Simon’s academic achievements are outstanding. “Our team has a great record of academic achievement, Justine Caunce completed her accounting diploma whilst working at Lay Associates and also topped the class with and A-grade or higher pass rate. It’s great to be surrounded by good people.”

Funding allocated to control conifer pest Environment Canterbury has announced the way new funding for wilding conifer control is to be allocated and administered in the region. Since the Government’s announcement in June that $16 million would be allocated to a national four-year programme, a Wilding Governance Group has been formed to provide oversight of an expanded control programme for this significant pest plant. The group has allocated just over $5 million nationally to the programme for 2016/17, of which nearly $3 million goes to Canterbury. Environment Canterbury chief executive Bill Bayfield said this allocation level illustrates the extent of the problem in the region. “There is much to be done to protect farmland, water yield and iconic landscapes from this invasive pest,” he said. “With another dry summer in prospect, reduced water yield caused by wildings becomes an issue, as does increased risk of fire.” Environment Canterbury regional leader biosecurity Graham Sullivan, who sits on an operational advisors’ group to the governance group, said prioritisation of infestations would guide control work in the first four years. “Like other councils in affected regions, Environment Canterbury acts as co-

ordinator on behalf of the Government,” Mr Sullivan said. “Over the next year we will implement six control programmes, with total combined funding of just under $4 million covering nearly 900,000 hectares, as well as participating in a large Waitaki programme with Otago.” The areas to be covered are all inland, and extend from Craigieburn in North Canterbury to Godley and Four Peaks in the south. In order of total funding allocated (size of management area in brackets) the six priority areas are: Craigieburn, North Canterbury - $2m (53,750) Lewis, also North Canterbury around Hanmer, $581,000 (295,900) Hakatere, Mid Canterbury, $383,000 (180,260) Godley, Mackenzie Basin, $379,000 (137,260) Porters, North Canterbury, $366,000 (189,740) Four Peaks, South Canterbury, $148,000 (40,140) Mr Sullivan said this co-ordinated national approach was an encouraging start towards containing the spread of Canterbury’s worst pest plant. “Last year $1.2 million was spent on wilding control in Canterbury and just under $12 million nationally. However, this

was insufficient to deal with the scale of the issue. Wildings are spreading at about 90,000 hectares a year, equivalent to nine average-sized high country farms. “The current initiative is the first phase of a programme that will hopefully lead to a sustainable long-term management plan. First we are looking for increased prevention and control; reducing the area currently invaded; co-ordinated, more cost-effective control and prevention; information gathering; and early control action and support. “Early action to prevent seeding is crucial if we are to get on top of the problem,” Graham Sullivan said. “Landowners, community groups and government agencies all have an important part to play if we are to be successful - both now and in future.”

Left uncontrolled, wilding conifers are predicted to: - spread across 20 per cent of New Zealand (the equivalent of Canterbury and Marlborough combined) within 20 years, costing the economy more than $1.2 billion - cover nearly six per cent (1.8 million hectares) of the country’s total land area - cause the loss of native ecosystems and species extinctions and threaten large, open mountain landscapes that define the South Island high country - impact historic and tourism landscapes, reduce water yields from catchments and increase wild-fire severity - potentially increase the cost and complexity of developing pasture and commercial forestry.

MY PRIDE & JOY

A barrel nose pick-up Steve Evans enjoys restoring old motor vehicles. These have included his wife’s 1960 Chev Impala Sports Coupe and more recently a 1938 Ford Barrel Nose Pick-up Truck owned by his friend, Grant Magson. “I first saw the pick-up when I was helping Grant on his farm. I offered to buy it but Grant said that because the truck had been his father’s he would never sell it,” explains Steve. Four years ago, Steve suggested to Grant that they restore the truck. While keen, Grant lacked the time so asked Steve if he would take the project on. The name Ford Barrel Nose Pick-up came from its oval shaped grille with it having the nickname ‘barrel front’ or ‘beer barrel pickup’ in the United States. The 1938 model was revolutionary in its cab design, instrument panel, pick-up bed and alligator bonnet that was hinged at the

back and opened at the front in contrast to the side opening earlier models. The pick-up has been a farm vehicle and done military service at Burnham; seconded during the war to replace military vehicles shipped overseas with the troops. The truck had its original flat head V8 85 horsepower engine and three speed manual gearbox but other parts were missing. Its original seats had been replaced with drawers stowed underneath for lambing tail rings and farming equipment. “As the pick-up was dropped off on our driveway, the chassis smashed in two. Otherwise, its condition was fairly original including its running cable brakes,” advises Steve who says that Ford went to hydraulic brakes in 1939. “When cable brakes are set correctly and the pedal is pushed down hard, these big brakes will put you through the windscreen,” adds Steve. Steve commandeered an original seat base from a dilapidated pick-up cab he had bought his wife for their 10th (tin) wedding anniversary. A seat kit was purchased from the United States along with an exact reproduction kitset of the deck. The original windscreen frame had rotted out and the jail bar driver’s door needed replacing with a legitimate 1938 door. Even a 1939 model door was not suitable due

Steve Evans and the almost complete 1938 Barrel Nose Pick up.

to it not being the same inside, something typical of other parts such as the grille and dash which are also unique to the year of manufacture. Steve’s father, Colin rebuilt the engine and driveline and his brother David resurrected the chassis from four worn out chassis sourced locally, a task made easier as the Barrel Nose Pick-up had the same chassis from 1936 to 1939. Steve estimates that the 1938 Ford Barrel Nose Pick-up has taken well over 800 hours to restore, which is not surprising given its condition when it arrived. “Deciding to restore the truck stemmed from my friendship with Grant as well as a desire to see the pick-up returned to its former glory, however it’s now time to finish some of my own projects,” he says.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Remember your motor vehicle Long distances and holiday motoring often go hand-in-hand. If travelling north this season, it is likely to be a longer trip and may involve negotiating earthquake damaged roads. With the heavier traffic and potential for metal surfaces or single lanes in places, your vehicle will be working harder for longer so it will need to be up to the job, with a properly functioning cooling system that will not overheat. After all, it is no fun being broken down on the side of the road with a car full of children, especially if it is a hot sticky day. It may be that there is nowhere to pull over should your vehicle become problematic, while finding an automotive outlet open over the holiday period may be a challenge and involve travelling even further. You will also not want to be stopped by the long arm of the law and end up with a fine because the warrant has expired. These are all good reasons for playing it safe and booking your vehicle in for a check before the Christmas rush; something that

is especially worthwhile if your vehicle will be towing a trailer or caravan. “Even with a current warrant of fitness, a motor vehicle may not be safe for a long trip,” explains Simon Wilson, owner of Rolleston Diesel & Petrol. Simon reminds that a warrant of fitness inspection is carried out on a particular day however general motoring can affect a vehicle. An example is the effect on a car of it shaking about when driven on damaged roads, something that is common in and around Christchurch or how hitting a pothole can put a wheel out of alignment. Rolleston Diesel & Petrol carry out safety checks on cars, trucks, four-wheel drives, motorhomes, business vehicles, jet skis, boats, motorbikes, tractors, ride-on lawnmowers and horse floats. They look deeper than is required for a warrant of fitness, checking the mechanical side of the vehicle, the oil and water, pressure and condition of all tyres and

Building blocks to a new home As Cantabrians continue to move forward, when building a new home, here’s a reminder to pay attention to some of the fine details...

Better returns. Less hassle.

Anyone intending to build a new home should have the builder’s contract checked out by an experienced lawyer. A payment schedule can also minimise financial risks. Issues that you may have to deal with include: the deposit, guarantees and warranties If you want to compare building companies, it’s important to get down to finer details such as how many power points there are per room, the type of windows you are having or which paint finishes are included.

We can take care of the details when it comes to managing your investment property, giving you more time to relax. Our detailed approach to everything

Staging a property Staging is a relatively new technique in presenting a house for sale where furniture and furnishings are used to enhance an empty house. The practice of staging is not new. A decade ago exceptional properties may have been staged however, in the last five years, this practise has increased. Many real estate agents are proponents of staging, believing that it assists people to visualise how their lives would fit within a house they are viewing. Seeing nice furniture in the home can also lead to a buyer making a quicker decision, translating into a reduced time that a house is on the market due to a wider group of people showing interest in securing the property. “People buy what they see. If they see a nicely dressed house, they can envisage themselves and their furniture in that environment,” says Mike Goatley from Rolleston’s One Agency. “If a house is empty at the time of sale, a smaller portion of the market will find it easy to compare the area of each room with the size of their own furniture and visualise how it would look in the space.” According to Mike, a staged property creates more interest with more buyers thinking: ‘Yes that’s me.’ This leads to the potential for more competition and a better sales price. Research conducted in the United States supports this theory and while hard to quantify, the belief is that staging could lead to a sale price ten times greater than the cost of staging. “Staging a house, generally puts a property into the sell zone, ahead of an empty property even

where the latter is as good as or offers more,” adds Mike. Karen Askew has been staging her own properties for ten years and for the last five years has operated home staging businesses, X Factor Home Presentation and more recently Signature Styling. “The challenge is to understand how particular furniture and furnishings can add to a house, changing the perspective of room size to make it look larger,” explains Karen. “With an older house the eye will focus on imperfections rather than what the room could be. Staging minimises this.” Karen emphasises that staging goes beyond colours and styles. While these are important, it is more about providing the person walking into the room with a possibility. “The premise behind auctioning a house is to get people emotionally involved so they will compete to win the property,” says Karen “Staging also provides an emotional connection.” While most of her work is with empty houses, Karen also advises people on how to de-clutter their homes while adding in key pieces to present the house to its best advantage. Sellers regularly tell her that once they see their house staged, it looks so good they often wish they were keeping the property. “We create an atmosphere that they didn’t even realise could be created,” adds Karen.

You just won’t believe this home’s space & options for use until you see it and, when you do, you’ll be blown away! So rare & yet so sought after, the 1916m2 section provides huge amounts of off street parking for caravans, trailers, motor homes, boats or company vehicles, whilst maintaining a lovely garden setting for the whole family to enjoy. The 4 car garaging, workshop & attached sleepout (with bathroom) are sure to excite the most avid car collector, hoarder or home handyman with all the storage space on offer here. Internally, this extensive residence comprises 4 spacious double bedrooms, an open plan living room with its entertainer’s kitchen & a formal lounge, all of which enjoy an open aspect to the large rear garden. Homes of this calibre, size & versatility don’t come along every day, so if this home is what you’ve long dreamed of, you need to snap it up whilst you can.
