Drink driving mums caught in Xmas blitz Selwyn motorists ignore warnings „„ By Tom Doudney A WOMAN who was nearly five times over the drink driving limit was caught by police just moments after she had picked her children up from school. The 38-year-old from Rolleston recorded a breath alcohol reading of 1157 mcg/L when she was stopped on Tennyson St with her two children, aged three and nine, in the car on Friday about 3.15pm. The legal limit is 250 mcg/L This comes in spite of police having warned they would be doing more breath testing as part of their annual Christmas-New Year drink driving campaign. Constable Blair Croucher said when the woman was told police

BEWARE: The police are out in force in Selwyn over the Christmas period.

and that would put them at risk. “I said to her ‘look, you were concerned that I was going to transport your children a short distance in my patrol car with-

out child seats in there but you don’t seem too concerned about driving almost five times over the limit with your children, plus driving past a school and a pre-school while children were

exiting the school’ and she pretty much just had a total disregard,” Constable Croucher said. “It’s extremely lucky, given her high reading, that there were no injuries.” An hour and a half later, another Rolleston woman, 35, recorded a reading of 696 mcg/L when stopped in the Faringdon subdivision with her four-yearold child in the car. The woman was pulled over after failing to stop at a stop sign. Both women have had their licences suspended for 28 days and will appear in court, charged with excess breath alcohol. Several other drink drivers were apprehended by police over the weekend, including a Springston woman, 54, who crashed her car off the Lake Rd bridge at Coes Ford on the way home from a work function on Friday at about 10.30pm. She recorded a reading of 800mcg/L. A man who crashed his car on Blakes Rd, near Prebbleton, on Friday night could not be breath tested as he was taken to hospital following the crash. However police suspected alcohol was involved and were awaiting the results of a blood test.

Tuesday December 13 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THAT’S A jaw-dropping drink drinking level recorded by a driver in Rolleston on Friday (see our article on page 1). And even more staggering is that the driver was a mum who had just picked up her kids from school when she was stopped in a preChristmas drink driving blitz. She was one of two mums with children caught by police in what appears to have been a fairly reckless attitude to drink driving over the weekend. Getting the woman who was more than four times the drink driving limit off the road was a top job by the police. And speaking of vehicles, a bit of disagreement at last week’s Selwyn District Council meeting over the plan to provide Sam Broughton with a mayoral car (see page 3). It’s what democracy is all about – viewpoints. – Barry Clarke

TICKETS FOR A CHRISTMAS PRESENT!

ON THE DOMAIN

Council will buy new car for mayor to use nine bands.

„„ By Tom Doudney A CAR will be bought for mayor Sam Broughton but not without opposition from some district councillors. District councillors Mark Alexander, Debra Hasson and Nicole Reid voted against the proposal to buy Mr Broughton a diesel 4WD vehicle costing up to $38,000. Deputy mayor Malcolm Lyall and district councillors John Morten, Jeff Bland, Bob Mugford, Murray Lemon and Craig Watson voted for it while Pat McEvedy and Grant Miller abstained. Cr Alexander said the mayor’s preferred diesel 4WD option was not cost-effective compared to the option of a small hatchback which had also been a possibility. He said the previous three mayors had used their own vehicles in spite of having to cover the same terrain. “With all due respect, Mr mayor, I do not support it – provide your own vehicle,” Cr Alexander said. Cr Hasson was also concerned that the vehicle’s carbon emissions would be high compared to

other options. However, Cr Bland said he believed the position of mayor warranted the privilege of having a car provided. Cr Morten said previous mayors had not lived in an alpine environment like Mr Broughton and a 4WD would be useful considering the conditions he could sometimes be driving in. Mr Broughton said a smaller car would not suit the terrain he had to travel but if there was a suitable carbon efficient option he would be happy to look at that. “A tiny car won’t get me the places I need to be able to access to meet with ratepayers, which includes places on farms and gravel tracks,” he said. “It’s not all asphalted driveways

and so a tiny car just does not handle that stuff very well.” Mr Broughton will take a pay cut as part of the arrangement, with $3508 coming off his annual $116,331 salary. While the district council will save an estimated $12,740 a year from Mr Broughton’s salary deduction and the reimbursement claims he would have put in if using his private car, it will also incur an estimated $15,502 on tax and running costs such as servicing, insurance, licensing and fuel for the new vehicle. Although Mr Broughton did have this own vehicle, he felt that constantly having to fill out reimbursement forms would be a distraction from his primary responsibilities. “I think it would just make my role simpler and easier not to have to do the paperwork every time I want to drive somewhere, so it’s to allow my focus to be on the bigger things.” •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you agree with the district council buying a car for mayor Sam Broughton?

In Brief

FIRE RISK Property owners throughout Selwyn are being encouraged to cut or graze long grass to avoid it becoming a fire hazard over summer, with fire restrictions expected to be introduced this month. The district’s principal rural fire officer Douglas Marshall said rain during October and November had meant there was lots of growth and conditions were now expected to dry out. “Unless we receive a substantial amount of rain in the near future, its likely fire restrictions will be introduced this month,” Mr Marshall said. Fallen powerlines sparked a grass fire next to Branch Drain Rd, near Leeston, on Friday at

about 3.15pm. The fire covered about 60 sq m before Leeston firefighters extinguished it. ROADWORKS The intersection of Byron St, Kidman St and Tennyson St in Rolleston will be partially closed until Tuesday next week. This will allow water race pipes underneath the intersection to be widened so they have more capacity. Traffic travelling along Byron St and Kidman St won’t be able to travel through this intersection during the closure and will need to detour on an alternative route – Rolleston Drive or Wordsworth St and Tennyson St. However, traffic travelling along Tennyson St can still pass through.

It doesn’t matter who fitted your existing hearing aids, or how new/old/ancient they are, Brenna’s expertise means that she can service and adjust all makes and models. Your hearing changes over time and the settings and tuning of your device need to change with it. If you have already invested in hearing aids, getting the most out of them makes so much sense.

What sets Brenna Sincock Hearing apart is that customers will always see Brenna, every visit. “They can take comfort in my years of experience” says Brenna. “I’m the boss, it (the service) all starts and stops with me.” “There are a significant amount of people in the area with hearing loss. Many hearing aid clinics are part of large internationally owned networks and therefore patients may not see the same person/audiologist each time they visit. It’s a little bit frustrating when you have formed a relationship with someone and they know your patient history, your lifestyle and then you have to explain it again. Continuity of care is so important!”

“What people may not realise is that it is their choice as to who cares for their hearing,” says Brenna “I love what I do, I am good at what I do and I want my customers to have the best hearing “Customers come first and I am always willpossible. It doesn’t ing to go the extra mile. I am here to help matter if they start locals hear better for years to come.”

News Courtenay pool to remain closed „„ By Tom Doudney AT LEAST one of Selwyn’s six community pools will not be able to open this summer and the other five will have to ensure they can meet new requirements before getting the go ahead. The district council has decided the community pool at Courtenay will not be able to open unless issues around active supervision and ageing plant and equipment are resolved. It has agreed to work with communities in Halkett, Leeston, Prebbleton, Killinchy and Sheffield to enable those pools to open. However, local pool committees and users will need to agree on plans which include regular water quality testing, ensuring that unauthorised users can’t access pools, secure chemical storage, signage and having first aid resources on site. Plans will also require active supervision in place when swimmers use these pools. This could include trained lifeguards, community supervisors who have received appropriate training or parents, who have received information about their responsibilities, supervising their own

children. The district council had undertaken an assessment of its swimming pools to ensure their operations comply with the Health and Safety in Work Act, which came into force in April 2016. There were no significant issues with its larger pools, the Selwyn Aquatic Centre in Rolleston and the Darfield and Southbridge pools complexes at Darfield and Southbridge pools. However, the assessment determined changes needed to be made at the smaller pools.

Mayor Sam Broughton said the district council realised the pools were important to their communities and wanted people to be able to use them over summer. “However, as the owner of these facilities the council also has a duty of care to people using the pools. Nobody wants a child to be injured or drown at a local pool.” At Halkett, Killinchy and Leeston, district council staff will work with pool committees to ensure that the required level of supervision is available, which is

likely to be provided by community members and users. At Sheffield and Prebbleton, both busy facilities, the district council will supply trained lifeguards. Prebbleton was previously a diving pool with a maximum depth of 2.2m so the district council believes it has a higher level of risk. Sheffield will only be able to open from 1-7pm, daily. The district council estimated that repairs and maintenance needed at Courtenay pool would cost somewhere between $60,000

and $80,000. It had indicated that these costs, coupled with the small number of users, reopening the pool in the longer term would not be viable. Courtenay Reserve Committee chairwoman Carol Garland was disappointed that the pool would not be able to open this summer. She said the estimated repair costs were ridiculous and the committee believed it could complete all necessary maintenance for about $5000. “That is just so far off the mark, if they really think they are going to have to spend that amount of money somebody is seriously ripping off the council,” Mrs Garland said. Sheffield Pool Committee chairwoman Rochelle Barrett said the result was a good compromise for them. “It’s better than not opening,” she said. “It would have been great if it could carry on the way it was but unfortunately that can’t happen.” Opening dates for the other five community pools will be advised as soon as the new operational arrangements have been confirmed with local pool committees.

Motorway business concern „„ By Tom Doudney STAGE TWO of the Southern Motorway could become a magnet for businesses interested in setting up in rural land along its corridor. During a recent District Plan review briefing, district councillors were advised by staff that they could come under pressure to allow the establishment of commercial premises by the motorway. The $195 million project, which will connect Rolleston with the city, is currently under construction and expected to be completed in 2019. It will see about 20,000 vehicle movements per day on average. Mayor Sam Broughton said the amount of traffic going past and the desire of adjacent landowners to sell or develop their land could create incentives for businesses to set up there. Canterbury University transport expert Professor Simon Kingham said it was inevitable that businesses would seek to establish near the off and on ramps. He expected supermarkets, petrol stations and larger chain stores to be interested in locating there. “You will start getting kind of

RISK: Stage 2 of the Southern Motorway could create pressure on the district council to allow businesses to set up alongside it. Mayor Sam Broughton, top right, and Canterbury University transport expert Professor Simon Kingham say decisions will have to be made on how to zone this land.

mini malls developing there and it’s all to do with land zoning so the Selwyn District Council will have to make decisions on how they want to zone the land there,” Professor Kingham said. “It has implications for people who have moved out there because they want the country feel and it also has implications for farming because sometimes the land is good farming land.” Professor Kingham said Christchurch’s Blenheim Rd provided an example of how small zoning changes could

have a dramatic impact on the landscape. “When I first came here 17 years ago there was no retail development on it and a very slight change in the planning regulations has resulted in masses of retail development down that road,” he said. “We need to fundamentally think ‘what do we want Greater Christchurch, including Selwyn, to look like in 10 or 20 years?’” The region was at risk of becoming more car dominated than it was.

“That may not be very sustainable or resilient into the future,” Professor Kingham said. Mr Broughton said he didn’t think it would be desirable to see a lot of development take place along the motorway. “I like having the green space between our towns and don’t want to see just shop after shop between things,” he said. “But then also you need space for businesses to set up where it is accessible, so finding that balance is something we will be discussing.’’

In Brief ENVIROTOWN EXPANDING The envirotown movement which started in Selwyn may expand into the North Island. Envirotown groups work to promote environmental sustainability within their communities. Envirotowns founder and Lincoln resident Sue Jarvis said she recently accepted an invitation to visit Katikati, near Tauranga, as a guest speaker and helper to organise a community meeting about starting a group there. Out of the eight current envirotown groups, the only one outside Selwyn is Oxford. GALLERY REPAIRS Darfield’s Selwyn Gallery will be closed from January 29 to March 13 while earthquake repairs are completed. Orion, which owns the building on South Tce, had requested that the gallery be cleared before work begins. VOLUNTEERS RECOGNISED The Malvern Community Board has thanked local volunteers for their work throughout the year by shouting them morning tea at the Darfield Service Centre on Friday. District councillor Bob Mugford said about 10 volunteers were present and it was a good morning.

Battle to get funding for community centres „„ By Tom Doudney SELWYN communities are struggling to raise the funds necessary to build new facilities needed to cater for growth and replace outdated buildings. Committee members behind the $8.3 million new community centre planned for West Melton and the $650,000 community pavilion planned for Weedons Reserve have made a public plea to the district council for more financial help. In an unusual move, district councillor Jeff Bland joined West Melton Community Centre Committee chairman Bruce Russell and Weedons Reserve Committee chairman Peter Holmes in making a public forum presentation to his fellow district councillors at their meeting on Wednesday. Cr Bland said the district council needed to look at a better funding model for such facilities. “Community facilities are important, they are a vital community asset, we shouldn’t just be looking at them as nice to have,” Cr Bland said. “A facility such as a community centre, a community deserves to have it – should have it, must have it.” Currently the district council

contributes 10 per cent to the cost of new community centres and targeted rates, rather than district-wide rates, are put towards the project. Such facilities rely heavily on fundraising campaigns and grants from organisations such as the Rata Foundation and Lotto New Zealand. However, Cr Bland said such funding was more difficult to come by and it was difficult raising enough money from within a small community. In Weedons’ case, the area only had between 300 and 400 ratepayers. Mr Russell said the $8.3 million new community centre would serve a larger area than just West Melton and the district council had a responsibility to ensure funding for community facilities.

struction. Mr Barnett said the door, which would separate the building’s main hall from adjacent meeting rooms, had been removed from plans to keep costs down but the committee had since realised this was a “tragic mistake” and they needed the funding by mid-January. “Removing that door takes away the whole flexibility of operation which is key to making this building work,” he said. The building was also reduced from one which could cater for 300 people to one which could cater for 200 people, again to reduce costs for the project which now has a price tag of just under $3.2 million. Dunsandel Community Committee chairman Russell Dalzell said if the district council

Our People

Tackling the massive task of protecting Te Ara Kakariki Greenway Canterbury Trust chairman Craig Pauling is a member of the Te Taumutu runanga and has been working on protecting and improving Selwyn’s environment. He spoke to Tom Doudney about degraded rivers and lakes and which sport he won a world championship gold medal How did you get involved with the Te Ara Kakariki Greenway Canterbury Trust? We founded the trust way back in 2006 and we have actually just turned 10 recently. I’m the only founding trustee still left on the trust. I got involved in the early 2000s alongside some other like-minded people who realised that the remaining native habitat we had left on the Canterbury Plains was pretty vulnerable but also valuable. There is only 0.5 per cent of the original native vegetation left on the Canterbury Plains. We thought something needed to be done and that councils and DOC were probably not going to get to it, so we decided to get out there and get on with it. We initially did a report highlighting all those things and saying that there was a need for restoration rather than just protecting remnants. We felt there was a need to create new places of native biodiversity.

fabric house

Does the trust have any specific goals in terms of how much area it would like to see forested on the Canterbury Plains? It’s a massive task. Our main vision is to create a network of biodiversity across the plains and we have focused on the Selwyn district. We have got such a battle ahead of us that we would probably scare ourselves if we had to think in hectares. But we have planted something like between 50,000 and 70,000 plants so far in 10 years. Selwyn District Council is a big supporter and have done a really awesome job at getting biodiversity back on council owned reserves like Coes Ford, Chamberlains Ford, Glentunnel Domain, Hororata Domain, even Greendale Golf Course.

Coe, who was just a councillor at the time, and I remember people saying ‘what would be your number one indicator of a healthy Selwyn?’ I said ‘to be able to swim safely at Coes Ford whenever I wanted to’ and to me that still would be a goal. I think we should be able to swim at Coes Ford any time that we want and we can’t. I haven’t really seen positive change in the Waikirikiri (Selwyn River). Yeah, the state of the Selwyn River does seem to be something a lot of people feel strongly about. The lake, Te Waihora, is another issue. I don’t have the knowledge of it myself because I don’t have the memories of being a kid and going down to the lake. I remember the river more so from my time going down and camping at Chamberlains Ford as a kid. But what I have heard from my aunties and uncles from the marae and a lot of people is that the lake was clear around the edges in the 1970s because of the massive macrophyte weed beds which held down sediment. To me that’s quite amazing – you could go to the lake and see the eels and the flounder swimming. Now that’s a dream and the 1970s weren’t that long ago.

the rivers and lakes That does sound amazing. To be able to see through the water in the lake would be an amazing feat for us to achieve now. And just to tell you why I think it can happen, my cousins are from Little River and Wairewa/Lake Forsyth, and every year we go out on that lake and harvest the flappers – the young moulting ducks. We have been doing that for the last 10 years, sort of revitalising that cultural tradition. Most of the time in that last 10 years the lake has been pretty bad – it’s warm, it gets algal blooms, it can turn bright green like Te Waihora does. But about three years ago, and I have got photos to prove it, that whole lake was completely clear. I could see down into the water 2m, it was cool to touch, it was beautiful. The main reason why it was clear was that the macrophyte bed grew back in the middle of the lake. It was about three or four rugby fields big and it had an effect on the upper end of the lake. It was full of bird life and fish life. I know right now that that lake is struggling again, its got a massive algal bloom and it’s looking like the summer is going to be really tough out there for the fish and wildlife and even the stock that can die if they drink it. So I have seen things

good and bad – but generally the picture is pretty bad. How hopeful do you feel about our ability to turn these sorts of things around in the future? From the Te Ara Kakariki point of view I think we have done a good job restoring plants and the birds will follow so I feel pretty positive on that, although we have a long way to go. We have a wee way to go on our waterways. We are all trying to do something about it but whether we are making the hard decisions is probably the biggest question for me. You ran for ECan in the recent elections, was that the first

time you had run as a political candidate? Yes, it was. I was actually quite happy with the 28,500 votes I got – but I would have needed 40,000 to get the fourth [regional councillor] place. But with the resources I had at my disposal, I only spent about $500 and it was just family and my wife doing the campaign and we mainly did it on Facebook, I was pretty encouraged with the result. But I am keen to have another go. What are your hobbies? Probably the biggest one is waka ama, which is outrigger canoeing. I have been doing that for the last 15 years to quite

a high level. I have been to the world championships and to the national championships numerous times. 2016 was a pretty big time for our team here in Christchurch, we won a gold and two silvers at the world championships in Australia and won the national title at the start of the year as well. I am pretty heavily involved in that sport and training kids. I have about 30 to 40 kids, mainly Maori, that I am involved in training up. That’s a big part of my life and I just love it. I get to be out on the water, I train on Lyttelton Harbour and the Avon River regularly – I am on those rivers and waterways every second day pretty much. Have you and your wife (Janyne) got any kids? We’ve got three kids. Mihiroa, who is 12, Meihana, who is 10 and Tainui, who is 9. And you work at Boffa Miskell, what’s your job there? Kaiarataki Te Hihiri – the translation is strategic adviser

Maori. Boffa Miskell is an environmental planning and design consultancy. Our Te Hihiri team is our cultural team and we work with our designers, planners and ecologists to engage with iwi and hapu, as well as do specific work directly with iwi and hapu. How long have you been at Boffa Miskell? I’ve been here for just over three years. Prior to that, I worked for CERA for a couple of years and prior to that with Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu and I also did a stint with Landcare Research based at Lincoln. So you’d be advising members of your team on how to make sure their work is sensitive to Maori values? Also, probably more so how to engage properly. Because most of the time iwi and hapu have their own knowledge and their own people and I don’t pretend to know all that but what I do know is how to work with them, and that is most important.

News Hororata Tartan cushions now on sale THE HORORATA Community Trust has teamed up with local seamstress Janine Kirkby to produce cushions made from Hororata Tartan. The Hororata Tartan is a special fabric which was gifted to the area in 2012 by the Scottish Tartans’ Authority and is one of the few registered tartans in New Zealand. Ms Kirkby said she was excited to be making the cushions. “I love the story behind the Hororata Tartan and it is a beautiful fabric which is full of life and colour; just like our community really,” she said. “We have aimed to produce these cushions to the highest quality. The tartan is 100 per cent wool and the fabric comes from Scotland.” The trust is the custodian of the tartan and all profits contribute to it and its work in the community. The tartan has been designed with six colours, each symbolising what it means to be from the Hororata region. People can purchase the Hororata Tartan products online at www.hororata.org.nz/hororatatartan or from Mason’s Drapery or Hororata Garage.

Notification of evacuation zones ABOUT 500 Selwyn households close to the ocean or Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere have received a letter with advice on what to do if there is a tsunami threat. These properties are located within an ‘orange zone’ which may need to be evacuated in the event of a tsunami warning. Selwyn civil defence controller Douglas Marshall said the boundaries for the orange zone had been identified based on scientific advice from Environment Canterbury on the maximum credible event that could impact Selwyn. None of Selwyn’s main townships are considered to be at risk from tsunamis with the closest, Leeston Douglas and Southbridge, Marshall both outside the orange zone. Smaller settlements inside the orange zone include Rakaia Huts, Taumutu, Upper Selwyn Huts, Lower Selwyn Huts and Greenpark Huts. “If a tsunami warning was issued, people inside the orange zone may need to evacuate this area,” Mr Marshall said. “We have written to these property owners to advise them

to sign up for our emergency text and email alert system Selwyn Gets Ready and to provide advice on what to do in a tsunami threat.” Three types of tsunamis could affect Selwyn. Distant tsunamis are generated from a significant distance, such as from across the Pacific in Chile. There will be more than three hours warning time for New Zealand for these tsu-

namis, and more likely longer. Regional tsunamis are generated between one and three hours travel time away from their destination. An eruption from an underwater volcano in the Kermadec Trench to the north of New Zealand could generate a regional tsunami. Local tsunamis are generated very close to New Zealand. With this type of tsunami there is no

time to issue an official warning and people will need to respond immediately. Three evacuation centre locations have been identified at Lincoln Event Centre, Leeston Library and Southbridge Hall where people can go after evacuating. If there is time to do so, volunteer community response teams will door-knock in affected townships and district council and emergency services will also warn residents using emergency vehicle sirens. “In a close to shore tsunami there will not be time to issue a warning,” Mr Marshall said. “If you feel a long or strong earthquake or see a sudden rise or fall in sea level or hear loud or unusual noises from the sea then people should move inland or go to higher ground as soon as possible.” The orange zone extends between 1km and 7km from the coast depending on local factors. Mr Marshall said it was likely to be reviewed and reduced next year as the initial zoning had been very cautious. •For more information on tsunami risk and warnings in Selwyn, visit www.selwyn. govt.nz/tsunami

Your Local Views

Looking back at a year Delicate river marked by change

AS THIS is my last column for the year I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone in Selwyn a very merry Christmas and a safe and enjoyable New Year. I hope that you have the opportunity to take a break and spend time doing what you love, whether that is relaxing with family and friends at the beach, reading a good book or getting out for a tramp in the bush. It has been a busy and positive year. I have enjoyed meeting many of you at events around Selwyn during the year and have also hosted coffee meetings at various locations to give you the opportunity to discuss with me any matters that you have wanted to bring to my attention. It has also been a year of change. Here in Selwyn we said farewell to our mayor Kelvin Coe and welcomed our new mayor Sam Broughton. On the national stage, we saw our prime minister step aside from his role as leader of our country and, on the international

stage, we saw surprise results in the United States election and in the United Kingdom referendum on whether to remain in or leave the European Union. Change is an inevitable part of life. Here in Selwyn, we reflected on how much Rolleston has changed as we celebrated the town’s 150th anniversary. Our region’s evolving role as an important industrial and logistics hub was strengthened by the opening of Lyttelton Port Company’s Midland Port, which joined the Port of Tauranga’s inland port at Rolleston. Meanwhile, in my neighbourhood of West Melton, I was pleased to open the new West Melton Village shopping centre, which offers the

opportunity for new businesses to establish themselves in this growing area. Next year is set to be another exciting one in Selwyn, with Rolleston College and Lemonwood Grove School opening their doors to students. We will also be able to see the next stage of the Southern Motorway beginning to take shape as work continues on this important project. If you have any concerns or issues that you think I may be able to assist with, or would just like to make your views known to me, please get in touch with my electorate office in Templeton. The office will be closed for the Christmas-New Year period from December 23 and will re-open again on January 16.

The Selwyn/Waikirikiri River is a classic Canterbury Plains river with headwaters fed from rainfall in the foothills, mid-reaches that frequently dry up and springfed lower reaches which flow constantly. Ngāi Tahu ancestors eloquently described the river as waikirikiri, meaning ‘river of gravel or stones,’ confirming that the mid-reaches have always dried up as surface water becomes groundwater. In mid-November, there was substantial rainfall in the Selwyn headwaters. This caused a small flood wave to move across the plains, but it did not reach the bottom. The flood wave travelled from Whitecliffs to Greendale, but did not reach Coes Ford. Tuna in the upper reaches used the flood wave to move downstream. They did not reach the coast and became stranded

in the mid-reaches. As the flows in the headwaters subsided, the flowing part started to retreat, stranding more fish. In the lower reaches, flows are very low due to extremely low groundwater levels. Every month since July this year has seen record low flows. Groundwater gains water (recharge) from two sources: Water infiltrating from rivers as they cross the plains, and rainfall infiltrating past the soil. Most rainfall recharge happens in winter when soils are wet, evapotranspiration is low and rainfall moves rapidly to groundwater. The two most recent winters have been extremely dry, meaning very little rainfall recharge. Groundwater loses water (discharges) through springs as part of groundwater fed streams, and through extraction for irrigation and drinking water.

Cycle advocate awarded „„ By Tom Doudney

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

When the inputs (rainfall and streamflow recharge) are lower than the outputs (spring-fed streams and human extraction), groundwater levels drop – and vice-versa. This causes regular rising and falling of groundwater levels. Because rainfall recharge is the largest input into the groundwater system, a series of dry winters causes very low groundwater levels. Groundwater extraction causes some of the low levels, but it is relatively insignificant. The last time we saw groundwater levels as low as they are now was in the summer of 2005/06. The lowest ever flow at Coes Ford was in March 2006 (20 litres per second). The flow there in early December this year

was 115 litres per second, equalling the lowest recorded in December 2005. The situation in 2005/06 was broken by snow in June 2006, which provided a large groundwater recharge boost. There are full irrigation restrictions on all takes from the Selwyn River. Many groundwater takes are on partial restriction and all deep groundwater takes have restrictions on their annual volumes. This has been the situation since November 2015. When you see irrigators working, they will be using water sourced from winter storage, deep groundwater or large alpine rivers which currently have good flows.

BROADFIELD resident Don Babe has received a Local Hero award for his cycling advocacy over more than a decade. Mr Babe (above) is chairperson of the Christchurch-Little River Rail Trail Trust and Spokes Canterbury as well as treasurer of the Cycling Action Network. The Kiwibank Local Hero awards pay tribute to those making a positive contribution to their region, town, suburb or community. Nearly 350 medals will be presented nationwide over the next few weeks and Mr Babe is one of 37 Canterbury recipients. Through his role with Spokes, Mr Babe’s mission has been to promote the bicycle as a mode of everyday transportation. Spokes has a vision that by 2020, Christchurch will be considered one of the top five cycle cities in the world. The citation for his award said he had given countless hours in his efforts in Canterbury and further afield,

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

and was one of the most well-known and influential advocates for cyclists in the South Island. Mr Babe said he was very flattered and humbled. “All those sort of things really come down to good teams and. if you have got a good team, it’s real easy,” he said. “Only one person stands

up but the rest of them are all there as well.” He was motivated by his concerns about the state of New Zealanders’ health and the planet and his belief that cycling made good economic sense. One overall national Local Hero award winner will be chosen from the regional recipients in February.

TWO SELWYN models who have been selected for New York Fashion Week are still a long way off their fundraising goal. Jayde Vivian, 16, of Leeston, and Jaime Spencer, 20, of Lincoln, are two of three New Zealand models hand-picked through the Ozlink Fashion Programme to walk in several NYFW shows in February. 11:51:35 a.m. Jaime has so far raised $475 and Jayde has raised $565

through their Givealittle pages. “It’s quite slow so I’m hoping it will pick up soon,” Jaime said. They envisage they’ll need about $5000 each to pay for flights, accommodation and other expenses. The pair need sponsorship for the trip because they’re both students. Jayde’s sister Jaz Vivian has set up a page on behalf of her

younger sister. “As you can imagine, the cost of this is going to be quite high and with Jayde being a student we are looking for sponsorship in a few forms to help fund this trip,” she said. 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. 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 Jayde: https://givealittle.co.nz/ cause/jaydeviviannyfw and Jaime: https://givealittle.co.nz/ cause/getjaimetonyc

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT: The Smithies family will open a ‘time tunnel’ at their Waterholes Rd property.

Take in the time tunnel A FAMILY of 13 will open a 250m time tunnel near Rolleston to the community for seven days in what they say is a bid to create unique Christmas memories. The illuminated bush tunnel featuring life-sized biblical and historical figures and other surprises will be open seven days, starting from Friday. The project was a family effort for the Smithies, Roger and Gwenda and their 11 children, with almost everyone involved in setting it up – from stringing lights to creating characters and dreaming up surprises.

Mrs Smithies said they did not want to give too much away about what sort of figures people would encounter in the tunnel but promotional material for it invites people to “experience the wonder of the first Christmas.” Entry will be by gold coin donation, with the funds going towards expenses and projects in India which aim to set families free from poverty by helping them establish small businesses. The time tunnel, will be open daily, 9pm-10pm, from Friday until December 23, at 293 Waterholes Rd.

DRAWING ON TALENT: West Melton School year 5 pupil Yoris drew this stormtrooper mask for a recent exhibition held at the school. The exhibition of work by year 5 and 6 pupils was open to the whole school community. During the term, the pupils have learned about how art can connect a community and visited sculptures on display in Christchurch as part of the Scape public art festival.

YOUNG CRITICS: New entrant pupils look at art on display as part of the exhibition.

Summer events

coming to Selwyn

Reduce fire risk on your property Rain over springtime has meant there is lots of growth around our district. Conditions are expected to dry out in summer, increasing the fire risk. If you have long grass on your property, now is a good time to either mow it or graze it. If you want to mow the grass, we recommend choosing a cooler day to mow and having a way to extinguish a fire available as sparks can ignite from machinery. Leaving long grass untrimmed means that if a fire did start on your property it could spread quickly. To reduce the risk of a fire endangering your property, we recommend that you if you live in a rural area you keep a clear space of 30-50 metres around your home, or more if you can. Inside this space, keeping grass short or using surfaces like paving, gravel or non-flammable plant species is recommended. You should also avoid putting anything flammable inside this space, like stacked wood or rubbish. To find out more about reducing the fire risk on your property, visit www.selwyn.govt.nz

Community Pools this summer

Selwyn Events

The Council will work with local communities to improve supervision and safety for people using community swimming pools this summer. The Council recently assessed its swimming facilities to ensure their operations comply with the Health and Safety in Work Act, which came into force in April. Selwyn Aquatic Centre and the Darfield and Southbridge summer pools, which are supervised by lifeguards, will operate as normal this summer – for opening hours at Darfield and Southbridge visit www.selwyn.govt.nz. There are also Council-owned community swimming pools at Halkett, Leeston, Prebbleton, Courtenay, Killinchy and Sheffield. Supervision arrangements at these pools are variable, and in some cases there aren’t systems in place to prevent unsupervised children from accessing the facilities. “Community swimming pools are very important to local communities and where possible we want people to be able to use their pool over summer,” says Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton. “However as the owner of these facilities the Council also has a duty of care to people using the pools. Nobody wants a child to be injured or drown at a local pool.” “This isn’t just a Selwyn issue - organisations all over New Zealand are all dealing with the impact of this legislation. We are considering what actions are needed to ensure that pools are safe for people to use,” says the Mayor. The Council will work with communities in Halkett, Leeston, Prebbleton, Killinchy and Sheffield to enable pools to open for summer. The Council will seek commitment from local pool committees and users to agree to plans which include regular water quality testing, ensuring that unauthorised users can’t access pools, secure chemical storage, signage and having first aid resources on site. Active supervision, involving lifeguards, community members or pool users, will also be required when swimmers use the pools.

Over 50 summer events are coming to our district as part of the Council’s Summer in Selwyn event programme, running from January to March. This year the ever popular Teddy Bear’s picnic will be returning to Rolleston Reserve on Wednesday 18 January from 11am-1pm. Teddy bears should look their best as there will be a competition for the best dressed bear. Family picnics are planned at Tai Tapu, Springfield, Springston, West Melton, Leeston, Lincoln Burnham and Prebbleton from January to March. Four Music on the Green sessions will take place at Leeston, Lincoln, Darfield and Rolleston. These sessions are a great chance to enjoy summer’s balmy evenings while being entertained by great local musicians. Family movie evenings are also planned during February and March. Kids can take part in summer skate jams at Darfield, Rolleston, Leeston, Tai Tapu, Lincoln, West Melton, Glentunnel and Prebbleton, and pool parties at Darfield and Southbridge, while the Selwyn Aquatic Centre is hosting five events as part of PoolFest. In addition to events organised by the Council, eight community organised events are also part of the Summer in Selwyn programme. Summer events planned for January are: Pool Fest Monday 16-Friday 20 January Selwyn Aquatic Centre, 1-3pm Cool water activities are back this summer! Make a splash with giant inflatables, paddle boats, aquatic volleyball and more Teddy Bears’ Picnic Wednesday 18 January, 11am-1pm Rolleston Community Centre and Reserve Pack a picnic and dress up your teddy for a fun family day out!

On the roads this week Byron/ Kidman Street intersection closure this week Part of the intersection of Byron and Kidman Street will be closed from Monday 12 December and reopen on Tuesday 20 December to allow the water race underneath the intersection to be widened so it has more capacity. Traffic travelling along Byron and Kidman Street won’t be able to travel through this intersection and will need to detour on an alternative route (Rolleston Drive or Wordsworth and Tennyson Streets). However traffic travelling through the intersection from Tennyson Street can still pass through the intersection. Unsealed road repairs are planned for Whitecliffs, Malvern Hills and Bleakhouse Roads, with traffic controls operating. Road reconstruction work continues on Deans Road, with traffic controls operating. Road marking will occur in the Darfield/ Sheffield area, with traffic controls operating. Footpath repairs are planned on Ellesmere Junction Road in Springston and on Homebush Road in Glentunnel. The intersection of Manse Road and High Street will be closed until 16 December to allow roading and stormwater upgrade work to occur, and motorists will need to detour via Selwyn and Cunningham Streets.

Meet Your Councillor - Pat McEvedy Pat is one of two Councillors in the Ellesmere ward, which covers Leeston, Southbridge, Dunsandel, Doyleston and surrounding areas. He can be contacted on 027 430 3818 or by emailing pat.mcevedy@selwyn.govt.nz. What is your background? I come from Southbridge and my background is in farming and business. With my wife and children we have developed an intensive arable farming business. Over time I have been involved in community committees and school governance. I have also had a large involvement in seeking better environmental outcomes for Selwyn and enjoy being hands on, whether it is with the Waihora Ellesmere Trust or Te Ara Ka¯ka¯riki planting days or supporting Enviro schools. What do you like about the area you represent? I enjoy the people in our district you meet constantly who are doing great things for their community and don’t realize how valuable they are and the impact they have. Helping these people access money, resources or just information is very rewarding. What do you think some of the challenges are Selwyn is facing? The biggest challenge is Selwyn District Council sticking to the business of getting things done. We need to keep focused, there are a large number of projects – both infrastructure and community – to progress. Being easy to contact and able to respond quickly to help people get on with their lives and businesses is also a challenge to meet, and providing efficient and economic services and facilities for all of our communities into the future is important.

A Christmas Message from the Mayor Christmas is a wonderful opportunity to gather together with family and friends we love. Its a time when life often slows a little and we are able to take stock of the year that has been and look forward to the things to come. For some of us this Christmas we welcome new members into our family through birth or marriage. For others of us Christmas will be tinged with sadness as we remember those who have been lost to us this year. Whatever your plans make sure you remember to cherish those who are gathered with you, to smile and say hello to strangers, to take opportunities to heal past hurts, and to sing a few carols and remember the reason for Christmas. Liz and I will be enjoying Christmas in Tauranga this year with her family. I trust whatever your plans are that you travel safely, that you find peace in the mayhem and you have a wonderful feed.

The community pool at Courtenay will not be able to open unless issues around active supervision and the replacement of ageing plant and equipment are resolved. Last summer around a dozen families used the facility. The Council recommended that the pool committee works with the neighbouring Halkett pool committee so that these families can use this nearby pool. Longer term, the Council will look at whether it is viable to repair this pool, given this will be expensive and there is currently low usage.

Whatever your plans make sure you remember to cherish those who are gathered with you, to smile and say hello to strangers, to take opportunities to heal past hurts, and to sing a few carols and remember the reason for Christmas. Liz and I will be enjoying Christmas in Tauranga this year with her family. I trust whatever your plans are that you travel safely, that you find peace in the mayhem and you have a wonderful feed.

The community pool at Courtenay will not be able to open unless issues around active supervision and the replacement of ageing plant and equipment are resolved. Last summer around a dozen families used the facility. The Council recommended that the pool committee works with the neighbouring Halkett pool committee so that these families can use this nearby pool. Longer term, the Council will look at whether it is viable to repair this pool, given this will be expensive and there is currently low usage.

Halswell take lead in cricket HALSWELL WILL take a 45-run lead into day two of their match against Southern Districts on Saturday. Day one of the match, which was played at Halswell Domain on Saturday, saw Southern put in to bat first after Halswell won the toss. Halswell started well with the ball and had Southern 32/3 after 17 overs before some good middle order partnerships saw Southern get to 135/6. However, bowler Geoff Barclay came back on to take late wickets, reducing Southern to 166/9 from their 50 overs. Barclay finished with figures of 5-39. Halswell were 30/2 after six overs before James Pearson joined opener Matt McClintock in the middle. These two batted well in a partnership worth 75 before Pearson was stumped for 39 off 30 balls and McClintock went out soon after for a patient 47. Leighton Johnston lifted the tempo with a nice 46 runs from 31 balls. However, a collapse saw Halswell go from 170/4 to 214 all out from just 36 overs, leaving Southern 10 minutes to bat until stumps. Johnston took a wicket on the last ball of the day to have Southern 3/1.

New bowler makes strong start for Dunsandel „„ By Karolyn Boon FOR ALANA Dalzell, entering into the Ellesmere Women’s Open junior singles tournament was all about getting some bowls experience. The first-year bowler from Coalgate joined the Dunsandel Club where her father and brother play. Arriving at Akaroa on Saturday, she had not previously played a singles match but a loss in her first game was to be the only one of the day. Being up against players that have had four or five years’ experience never phased Dalzell as

she constantly kept drawing to the jack and making good shot decisions. With only three qualifiers out of the eight entrants, Sharheen Eaqub, who beat Dalzell 12-8 in round one, drew with Dalzell in the semi-final. But Dalzell played excellent draw bowls and Eaqub conceded an end short 6-15. Effie Hallewell from the host club, Akaroa, had drawn the bye and waiting is never easy, but at four-all after five of 13 ends, the game was a great spectacle. Dalzell picked up a three on the sixth end to build confidence and won six of the

remaining ends to win her first Ellesmere trophy, beating Hallewell 15-9. She won five games in a row on her way to winning the trophy and is a very talented bowler in the making. In the men’s junior singles, played at the Tai Tapu Club, the men also had only three qualifiers from the field of eight. Nick Alfeld from Lincoln drew the bye into the final, leaving Akaroa’s Don Walker to play Lincoln’s Colin Stevenson. Walker was too strong for Stevenson. In the final, Alfeld’s dedication to practice and coaching

showed his all-round strengths in the game and Walker conceded 8-17 after 13 of the 15 ends, making Alfeld this year’s junior champion. Ellesmere Cup’s final round saw the Lincoln 5 team, skipped by Lyndsey Withell, beat Lincoln 3 to win the ladies mid-week competition after dropping only one game out of the nine rounds. Withell was lucky to have a consistent team throughout the competition, only having to substitute twice. The team included Margie Watson, Bev Gregg, Eileen Bell and substitute Nancy Jessep.

Prebbleton/Lincoln and Springston met in the third round of the Ellesmere senior interclub division 1 championships on Saturday. Springston prevailed 11-5 on their home court. Springston now has one win from three rounds and remains in second position in the five-team competition, courtesy of tight losses in their opening games against Killinchy White and Tai Tapu Gold, who lead the competition. Prebbleton/Lincoln are win-less after an opening round bye and second-round loss to Rolleston and sit at the foot of the competition. The interclub competition has its final round on Saturday.

Benton featured again in Canterbury’s loss against the Auckland Aces at Hagley Oval on Sunday. He was the best of the Canterbury bowlers taking one wicket and going for just 20 runs from four overs. Jamieson and Benton will be in the mix again when Canterbury take on the Wellington Firebirds at Hagley on Thursday.

Bigger home for field days

Looking back

HEADING INTO the second event at its new home in Kirwee, the South Island Agricultural Field Days is growing. Organisers say next year’s event, from March 29-31, will be bigger than ever. South Island Agricultural Field Days spokesman Daniel Schat said 90 per cent of the exhibitors’ spaces had been allocated. The SIAFD executive committee bought the site on Courtenay Rd, Kirwee, after it outgrew its leased site near Lincoln University, where it was based for more than 30 years. “When we moved to Kirwee

we purchased 40ha, which allowed us to accommodate up to 450 exhibitors. Now we have purchased an additional 40 ha of land adjacent to our site,” Mr Schat said. “While we will not occupy the entire 80ha at the 2017 Field Days, we will have more exhibitors and a bigger demonstration space than last time.” SIAFD switches between Canterbury and Southland each year. During the off year Kirwee farmer Tony Redman leases the SIAFD site and in recent months Cressland Contracting Ltd has been doing site development work on the newly-acquired portion of the site.

Grazing service Milk company wins Best Growth introduced A new grazing service for farmers, which facilitates grazing on behalf of stock- owners and graziers, has been set up by PGGWrightson (PGW). Established two months ago, PGGWrightson Livestock Grazing aims to meet the needs of Canterbury dairy farmers requiring grazing for their young stock, matching them with farmers that have pastures available. Former stock agent James Penny has been appointed as grazing manager for the Canterbury region. Coming from a farming background, and with a “passion for animals”, James says PGW’s new business unit was developed in response to the changing face of farming in the region, which has seen large numbers of conversions from sheep and beef to dairy over many years. “The grazing facilities provided by our graziers enables young stock from other farms to be grown out to industry target

live weights,” James says, adding that winter grazing can also be provided. Land put forward by graziers is first checked to ensure it is designated for grazing, has a water supply and can be irrigated. The grazing service includes a management plan and animal health plan being established, as well as a feed budget for both stock-owner and grazier. An important factor of the service is the monthly monitoring of the stock, James says. “The animals are weighed every month using our transportable autodrafter.”

Synlait Milk has won the Best Growth Strategy category at the 2016 Deloitte Top 200 Awards. The annual awards celebrate proven excellence in New Zealand business management and governance. “We’re very proud to receive this award,” managing director and CEO John Penno said. “It recognises the effort we’ve put in since our IPO in 2013 to make more from milk, and the success we’ve had as a result of this approach.” Synlait was one of three finalists in the category, and the judges said Synlait won because of a growth strategy based on selling selected products to leading brands around the world. Synlait reported a record profit in the 2016 financial year (FY16) of $34.4 million, a $23.8 million increase on the prior year. Mr Penno said Synlait’s point of difference was the way they partnered with their customers and milk suppliers.

“Partnering with leading global infant formula companies and market disruptors is a key part of our value-added focus. Our FY16 profit stems from significant growth in our ingredients and canned infant formula volumes for our customers around the world. “Our ability to collect and process differentiated milk streams from our 200 Canterbury milk suppliers consistently, and at scale, with some of the most sophisticated production capability in the world creates real value for both our customers and milk suppliers. That’s what’s driving our revenue and profit growth.” Synlait recently launched their next growth phase, which will see approximately $300 million invested over three years. In October they raised $97.6 million of new equity and on November 25 they commenced trading as a dual listed company on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

Student researching bio-waste potential Native vegetation and bio-waste could be key players in New Zealand’s economic future as the transformation of degraded lands into value-producing, biodiverse ecosystems becomes a necessity and a reality. Inspired by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise’s focus on native products as a key sector, Lincoln University Soil Science PhD student Salome Seyedalikhani is carrying out a study to determine the effects of bio-wastes on the quantity and quality of essential oils produced from mānuka and kānuka plants. Associate Professor Brett Robinson says Salome’s research is linked with a number of other studies and field trials being carried out. “Salome’s work is part of a larger progamme that seeks to divert biowastes from landfills or waterways onto land where the nutrients that they contain can provide economic value. “Lincoln University is working with the Centre for Integrated Biowaste Research

Salome Seyedalikhani (CIBR) on field trials around New Zealand to elucidate the benefits of New Zealand native vegetation on soil that has been improved using biowastes.”

Bio-wastes are organic materials of biological origin, such as bio-solids, dairy shed effluent and sawdust. While these materials may contain contaminants such as heavy metals and pathogens, they are also rich in plant nutrients, and a cheap and plentiful resource for rebuilding degraded or low-fertility soils where food is not produced. One such place is former forestry soils, where rebuilding the soils with bio-waste may be a more viable economic alternative than replanting in pines. Bio-wastes would increase the soil’s nutrient and water holding capacity, and provide essential elements to accelerate plant growth. Biowastes would also change the quality of essential oils produced by these plants. The nature of these changes is the subject of Salome’s research. In a series of greenhouse experiments, mānuka and kānuka were grown in low fertility soils, and soils amended with either biosolids, biosolids and sawdust, or dairy shed effluent. The addition of biosolids

increased the growth of both species by up to sixty percent. In turn, mānuka and kānuka have an effect on the soil, producing antiseptic chemicals and affecting soil microbes involved in nutrient cycling. The most important components of the essential oils were unaffected by the addition of bio-wastes. Ultimately there is potential for some bio-wastes to be diverted from landfills to degraded land, where they can boost the production of essential oils made with mānuka and kānuka. Fields trials are now being carried out to explore the ecological variables and production economies. While the bio-waste concepts can be applied internationally, mānuka and kānuka production can’t be replicated elsewhere, giving New Zealand a unique industry opportunity and a competitive edge. After winning the Lincoln Postgraduate Conference Prize for top presenter in her faculty, Salome is presenting her findings at an international soils conference this week in Queenstown.

„„ By Henri Ham IF YOU want to make a bit of a statement in your garden this summer, you can’t go past portulaca. This striking plant grows to around 10cm high and produces beautiful flowers with layers of fabric-like petals. It’s perfect for planting in borders, bedding, edging, rock gardens, pots and hanging baskets. And, if you get some in the ground soon, it will keep the show in your garden running all through summer. For those wanting to show off colour in their garden, you can purchase mixed bundles but a couple of the favourites are tequila cherry, which is bright pink, and tequila yellow. Because portulaca tolerates heat and drought so well, it pays to plant it in full sun. It grows very nicely next to livingstone daisies or gazania as they are all fans of the sun and they all grow to similar heights. Plant each seedling around 25cm apart from the next. Portulaca looks lovely when

FUn aCTiViTiES for the kids

With school holidays creeping closer and closer, you will be desperately thinking of some activities to keep the kids occupied and entertained. Here are a few ideas to get them out in the fresh air.

Sow Sunflower seeds

Sunflowers add a bright burst of colour and also draw much-needed bees to the garden. They are super easy to grow, and give the kids something to keep an eye on as they begin to grow. Here are some tips for planting. 1) Pick a part of your garden that has plenty of sun. For taller varieties, make sure that you plant them near a fence or trellis so they are protected from the wind, and so you can tie them back if they start to topple. 2) Sunflowers like to grow when the weather’s warm so now is a great time to get in to it.

Plant a hanging basket

These looks great, and take up very little space. Head down to your local garden centre and grab a hanging basket and let the kids help you pick the flowers you want to add in. use South-Hort Patio Plus as your growing mix, as this contains all the vital nutrients your plants will need to keep flowering, and help them get through the summer heat.

Paint pots

Grab some plain terracotta pots, and some paint and let the kids get creative. Once they are done, choose some flowers or some herbs and get planting. Once again, use South-Hort Patio Plus. This mix is designed specifically for growing in pots, containers and baskets.

3) Push the seeds into the soft soil. Make sure they’re down at least one centimetre, then water well (using a watering can) afterwards 4) As the plants grow, keep them well watered, and give them some fertiliser every couple of weeks.

Make sure that you practise safe gardening. Slip, slop, slap and wrap! We recommend using gloves while you are out in the garden, and that you wash your hands as soon as you are finished.

Driven Plush Lexus at home in the rough „„ By Ross Kiddie BY MY own admission I’m a bit of a snob, I glamourise where I live, and I tell people I own a Lexus. Well the latter is true up to a point, I own a Toyota Altezza which was sold here new as a Lexus IS200/300. Badge engineering is commonplace throughout the automotive manufacturing world, and Lexus has had several models sourced from the wider Toyota stable. One to come my way recently was the Lexus LX450d, a large, luxury four-wheel-drive SUV based on the Land Cruiser platform. And realistically, it is a Land Cruiser 200 in disguise, it gets all the trick four-wheel-drive gear along with all the grandeur that embodies the Lexus spirit of luxury, refinement and sophistication. The LX has always been powered by a 5.7-litre V8 petrol engine, but just recently it has been joined by a 4.5-litre V8 diesel which, incidentally, is the first Lexus diesel offering. The LX570 lists at $179,900, and I guess if you have that amount of money to spend on a vehicle, filling regularly with petrol probably isn’t a disadvantage, but at $159,900 the diesel variant probably makes just that little bit

• Price – Lexus LX450d, $159,900 • Dimensions – Length, 5080mm; width, 1980mm; height, 1865mm • Configuration – V8, four-wheel-drive, 4661cc, 200kW, 650Nm, six-speed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 9.5sec • Fuel usage – 9.5l/100km

LEXUS LX450D: Diesel engine is the first for Lexus.

more sense, and it is still the epitome of luxury transport off-road, or any road as the case may be. Ironically, it was just a few weeks back that I drove the Land Cruiser 200 with exactly the same engine and driveline. I remarked then that even though it is a huge and bulky vehicle, it doesn’t feel big to drive; the same can be said for the LX450d, and it is an offroad champion like no other. The four-wheel-drive mechanicals and the electronic systems which override it are comparable to the world’s best four-wheeldrive platforms – even Range Rover and Jeep product. The LX450d has a multitude of options available at the driver’s command for when road (or track) surfaces vary, they are all

dial or button operated, mostly from an extensive array on the centre console, they are intuitive to use quickly when grip and traction settings need altering. There are also comfort, normal and sport suspension settings. Lexus rate the 4461cc, quadcamshaft, 32-valve V8 at 200kW, with an amazing 650Nm of torque available all of the way from 1600rpm to 2800rpm. It is a true powerhouse with an unfaltering flow of power right through to the 4500rpm redline. Well, it needs to be strong, the 450d weighs heavy at over 2500kg, and rated with a 3500kg towing figure there is a lot of weight to haul constantly. That aside, the 450d feels sprightly, it will cut out a stand-

still to 100km/h time of 8.6sec, and will lunge through a highway overtake in 5sec; both these figures I would suggest are quick for vehicle type. Drive is transferred through a six-speed automatic gearbox, interestingly, the petrol V8 gets a flash eight-speeder, but that matters little, the diesel unit flows smoothly through the transmission and it has quick, fluid shifts which work well with the power characteristics. A stiff southerly was blowing through Canterbury during my day of rural testing, and as big as the LX450d is, it wasn’t bothered by the wind gusts, there’s a lot of sheet metal down the side of the vehicle (almost 5.1m) but it feels firmly planted on the road and has remarkable stability. There is little sensation in a

corner, there is body roll, but that’s no surprise, it’s how I would expect it to be. The LX450d gets a fabulous ride through a complex air suspension system, bearing in mind that it has to disguise a live rear axle. Up front the suspension is more traditional through a double wishbone system, but the engineers have created a plush ride, and that is something we have come to expect with Lexus. The mechanicals are engineered for life cross-country. I didn’t take the vehicle off-road for fear of damage, although I did take it on a long shingle loop near Hororata, crossing the Hororata River through legitimate fords. The river was barely a trickle, but it was a good opportunity to test the varying four-wheel-drive options. As a series, the LX has just had a major makeover, it’s a lot more than cosmetic facelift, the only carryover panels are the doors. The interior, too, has had a major refresh, and all of the trim elements are true Lexus with enough cockpit dials and switches to keep a Boeing pilot happy. The LX series is a quality piece of kit all round. It is expensive, but you certainly get a lot of vehicle for the money. It is most certainly the machine to get you to the skifield in style.

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), walkin 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.

Outdoor rooms Just because an outdoor space doesn’t have walls, that doesn’t change the basic principles applied to any design project inside your home.

W

ith a few simple fundamentals to guide you, you’ll soon see how easy it is to create a beautiful outdoor room you’ll love entertaining and relaxing in throughout the warm days and balmy nights of summer. Key considerations include style, function, lighting and mood. Remember that your outdoor room ought to be an extension of the look you’ve created within your home, which reflects your personality and lifestyle. Focal point Beginning, as with any room of the home, a space must always have a focal point to anchor the space. For some, this may be a bar or barbeque area, a large dining table, or a chill-out zone with couches or loungers. Outdoor fireplaces are becoming more and more popular as our living areas blend seamlessly between indoor and outdoor entertaining throughout the changing of the seasons. They can serve not only a practical purpose of somewhere to gather around to warm as the day turns to dusk and the nights get shorter, an outdoor fire can make a stunning feature or room

divider for any outdoor living area. Water features, like a pond with beautiful koi fish, can also serve as a great outdoor focal point, creating tranquil environment in which to relax and unwind in, or create a meditative Japanese rock garden which your outdoor area can overlook. In the zone If you already have a large terrace or outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great place to start. If you have a particularly large outdoor area, dividing the space into zones makes for a more functional and aesthetically pleasing space. You can do this by using a number of different elements, such as contrasting flooring materials or by creating different levels of decking. However, if you’re after a seamless indoor/outdoor flow or wish to create the illusion of more space, use the same flooring materials indoors and out. Divisions can also be made with the clever positioning of furniture. Use modular seating to create walls and separate spaces. Plants are a cost effective and eco-friendly way to create divisions between zones, and are also an ideal way to camouflage ugly walls, create privacy and soften sharp angles. Living walls, an

ever-increasingly popular vertical plant system, can be either freestanding to create different outdoor areas and can be on wheels to easily transform your outdoor space at a moment’s notice. Play with height and scale with various types of planters, whether you use hanging planters to draw the eye upwards, or oversized planter pots to add drama. Go with the flow Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is easily created by opening up your kitchen with bifold doors or windows to create a servery or bar area for easy entertaining. If you are building your home from the ground up, you may want to design an outdoor room which lies at the epicentre of the building, with rooms opening onto the communal courtyard with bifold doors.

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

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

New show home opens at Levi Park An exciting new show home opens this Saturday in Rolleston’s Levi Park. Built by Pringle Homes, this 212.5 square metre home is ideal for young couples, families or those downsizing. This is a house that stands out, illustrating that the right mix of quality fittings and clever use of colours can lead to a contemporary stylish look at an affordable price. Its higher 2.55 metre ceiling, modern clean lines, efficient layout and sunny spacious living are just some of the features that are apparent as one first walks into the home. In the kitchen there are Tri Stone benches with an island, quality appliances and walk-in pantry making it perfect for those who like to cook. Practicality has not been overlooked either, with vinyl plank flooring stretching through the living zone to a softer area in the lounge where double doors allow privacy or the potential for a larger living space. Another feature is the indoor outdoor flow to a large sheltered hardwood deck, accessible through wide sliders from the dining/living room, or from the lounge and with the main bedroom leading out to an adjoining patio there is plenty of sheltered space for alfresco entertaining. There is clear separation between bedrooms and living plus an element of separation within the bedroom wing where the main and second bedrooms sit apart from bedrooms three and four, which are close to the main bathroom and separate toilet. All are double bedrooms with good sized wardrobes while the main bedroom has a walk-in robe and ensuite. A feeling of luxury exudes with bathroom features including a stylish

free standing bath, generous vanities, tiled bathroom walls and floors with underfloor heating, and walk-in tile/ glass shower in the ensuite. There is also good storage with a centrally located walk-in linen cupboard, and attic trusses in the double garage. The laundry also sits in the garage and has a longer than normal bench with sliding cupboards underneath and full height storage cupboard. Orientated for the sun, this home has been cleverly positioned on its 609 square metre section. The design sits within an affordable price bracket yet its internal features and external plaster finish with cedar timber and charcoal coloured joinery, roof and garage door give it a stylish presence. Pringle Homes have been recognised builders in Levi Park in recent years. They are known for building quality homes yet as a smaller building company, offer a more personal service, flexibility in design and efficient build times. Pringle Homes’ new show home is located at 3 Genoa Avenue, Levi Park (just around the corner from their original show home). It opens on Saturday, 17 December 2016 and will be open every Thursday to Sunday, from 12 noon until 4pm. You can contact Pringle Homes by phoning Perry on 021 354 289, Ben on 027 245 0994, the office on 03 421 2795 or via their website: www. pringlehomes.co.nz.
