Rock concert roaring success District

alcohol policy decision looms

A big crowd enjoyed a fantastic day at the very first Selwyn Sounds rock concert in Lincoln on Saturday. Jordan Luck (above) was one of several headline acts at the nine-hour festival. •Story, page 4 •More photos, 12-13 PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

„„ By Tom Doudney A NEW policy on when and where bars and bottle stores can operate in Selwyn may clear its final hurdle tomorrow. After almost four years of negotiation and dispute, the Local Alcohol Policy is up for approval at tomorrow’s district council meeting. The policy would come into effect on April 24, except for provisions on trading hours for licensed premises which would come into effect on July 31. Taverns will be forced to close at 2am - later than the 1am time which had been proposed in an earlier version of the policy but earlier than the 3am time that several are currently allowed to stay open until. New standalone bottle stores would only be allowed to locate in business zones or neighbourhood and local centres identified in the District Plan. • Turn to page 4

Tuesday March 7 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

SOME VERY strong comments from Canterbury’s Medical Officer of Health Alistair Humphrey in today’s lead story on changes to the district’s alcohol policy. The changes are likely to be rubber stamped at the distict council meeting tomorrow and will see closing hours come forward from 3am to 2am. Health authorities wanted bars closed at 1am - but the district council seems to have compromised with the 2am plan. Humphrey isn’t happy and believes the district council has been strong armed by the liquor industry, which of course represents bar owners who generally want to be open as long as possible. Heady stuff. The first Selwyn Sounds has come and gone and it’ll be a talking point for some time for all the right reasons. Great job by all involved. - Barry Clarke

Green light for new Lincoln school „„ By Tom Doudney A PREVIOUSLY signalled second primary school for Lincoln will go ahead in 2019, the Government has confirmed. It was one of three new primary schools which Education Minister Hekia Parata has announced will open in 2019, with the other two being in Auckland and Tauranga. The location for Lincoln South Primary School has not yet been finalised but that is likely to happen soon.

It will be a full primary school (Years 1-8). Stage one of the $14 million project will cater for 450 students with a final roll of 700. Formally establishing the school enables an establishment board of trustees to be appointed and planning to get underway. Ms Parata said the new school would help ease the pressure on the existing Lincoln Primary School, which is currently operating from two sites due to the number of pupils having outgrown available classroom space, and would cater for the

continued population growth the town was experiencing. Lincoln Primary School principal Viv Butcher said the school was delighted at the announcement. The school roll was currently at 575 pupils and was expected to continue growing even after the new school opened. “We have been told that the roll could get up to 800,” she said. “We have got a [classroom] refurbishment underway at the moment, we have got a building

In Brief

programme underway and all the design work has been done, that is getting quite close to submission for consent, and then we are talking about the next phase of building with the Ministry [of Education] now.” Selwyn MP Amy Adams said news of the new school was wonderful. “Lincoln South Primary will have state-of-the-art, modern and comfortable buildings to ensure local kids and their teachers can work in the best possible learning environment,” she said.

Gumboot throw record attempt

MAYOR’S BABY BORN Mayor Sam Broughton and wife Liz have welcomed their first child, a girl named Elliott Elizabeth Broughton. Elliott was born on Sunday, at 1.18pm, weighing 3.59kg. GALLERY REOPENS Darfield’s Selwyn Gallery is to reopen after the building which housed it was closed for repairs in January. The gallery’s next exhibition, a Different Landscape, will open on Tuesday next week. Orion, which own the building that houses the gallery, had requested the gallery be cleared prior to construction beginning. RAKAIA BOAT RAMP A staff report to tomorrow’s district council meeting recommends making a $50,000 fund available to the Little Rakaia Boating Club to help repair the a boat ramp, breakwater and foreshore area. The area was damaged in a 2008 flood and the district council set up the fund for its maintenance, repair or enhancement at that time. The club needs funding, initially to undertake design work on the project and ultimately to complete the project.

Charlotte Hastings, Braden Caulfield and Reilly Cormack were three of about 120 people who turned up to the Lincoln University sports fields last week for an unsuccessful attempt to set a new Guiness World Record for the number of people taking part in a gumboot throwing competition. The record of 478 people, set by Massey University last year, was never under threat. Lincoln had held the record before Massey, with 348 people at a competition in 2013. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

District alcohol Concert organisers look ahead decision looms „„ By Tom Doudney

• From page 1 The police and Canterbury Medical Officer of Health Alistair Humphrey had been strong supporters of the 1am closing time for taverns. But that policy was appealed by Foodstuffs South Island Ltd, The Mill Retail Holdings and Independent Liquor Ltd, Progressive Enterprises, Lincoln Golf Club, the Hospitality Association of New Zealand and Super Liquor Holdings Ltd, which argued that it was too restrictive. In May 2015 the appeal was heard by the Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority which asked the district council to reconsider the policy. Dr Humphrey said Selwyn was one of a number of councils which had been strong-armed into changing its policy by the alcohol industry which was better resourced to fight a battle in the courts. “I think we just have to keep our fingers crossed that we don’t see too much harm in Selwyn as a consequence of that extra hour,” he said. “I dearly hope that nobody gets hurt at that time but I am

sure people will be, and every time someone dies in a car crash as a consequence of alcohol or every time someone gets assaulted, every time someone gets raped because someone has had that extra bit of booze at that time of night is something that I hope will weigh on the consciences of those who made that decision to push it out for an extra hour.” Hospitality Association South Island area manager Amy McLellan-Minty said Mr Humphrey’s comments were inaccurate, ill informed, inflammatory and damaging to an industry which took responsible drinking and the safety of its patrons seriously. “The lack of compelling evidence from police and health about alcohol related harm in the Selwyn district is more likely the reason for the council decision,” she said. A spokeswoman for the district council said it would not comment on the policy before tomorrow’s meeting. The district council first consulted on its draft Local Alcohol Policy in July 2013 and received 67 submissions.

ORGANISERS OF the Selwyn Sounds concert are already looking to next year’s event after a crowd estimated at more than 7500 packed the Lincoln Domain on Saturday. Event organiser David Parlane said he didn’t have final crowd numbers in yet, but estimated it would be between 7500 and 8000 people. The line up included Mi-Sex, Dragon, The Jordan Luck Band, Jason Kerrison, Annie Crummer, Debbie Harwood, Margaret Urlich and Sharon O’Neill, as well as other acts. Mr Parlane said it had been an astounding success. “We got the perfect day, the perfect weather, the perfect people and it just went to plan,” Mr Parlane said. He was talking to several international acts about playing at the event next year, but couldn’t give away any names at this stage. Mayor Sam Broughton said the event’s success was good for Selwyn. “There are a number of existing events which draw large crowds but it’s nice to have new events which also attract people not only from within the district, but from outside the district as

well, with plenty of people from Christchurch enjoying a day in Selwyn,” he said. “We have got a population now that can support large events and also proximity to surrounding districts and locations that are desirable for large events.” Mr Broughton said the organisers had clearly put in a massive effort to make the event a success. “There were a few concerns from neighbours around sound and parking and things, but the reports I have heard is that it all went well.”

Add A pop of colour

NINa COOk - OpeNINg Nina Cook was born in Whakatane in 1967. She was educated in Wanganui and then at Christchurch Polytechnic School of Art and Design where she received a Bachelor of Design. In 2007 Nina established the studio from which she currently works. Nina’s latest exhibition named ‘Opening’ takes place at Little River Gallery from March 11th until April 5th. Ian Clothier writes about Nina Cook’s new works from the exhibition ‘Opening’. “…Sumptuously indulgent, some of the paintings have sensual cavities accompanied by extravagant displays of form and colour that come close to gorging the eyes. Words such as colour, spectrum and visual feast apply equally to the paintings as they do to the tail of peacocks. Such as the collection of thoughts about feathers, colour and visual luxury that assemble on reflection of Nina Cook’s Opening works.” Nina writes about her own work. “The narrative/impetus for this series of works is deeply personal. Broadly, it is about a cycle of profound hurt to intense release. Opening: to force an opening (to breach) through to Opening: to release and truly open up. The process is integral and is one of concentrated, open-minded patience, requiring me to stay alert to paint (viscosity, brush loading, etc) and compositional characteristics in much the same way as fully abstract works demand. These cannot be rushed, nor the movements/marks allowed to become repetitively mechanical. To do so would be to undermine the intention of the work. The works initially appear highly decorative and orderly – feathers mean birds. But on closer inspection, these are not any birds you’d recognise. Their physiology is different (wrong? altered?). The colours and intensity are emotive, the mark-making intense. These irregularities draw you in, encourage observation and contemplation. But ultimately you are released to once again to simply enjoy the decorative qualities of these jewels. That they are designed to be hung at any angle, allows the image to be changed/refreshed at will. This allows the viewer input into the relationship each work has with its surroundings. The round paintings are very effective in groupings, allowing differences between the works to intensify each other.”

nina cook

Event operations manager Stuart Dwight said there had been no problems with disorder at the concert and no one was arrested on the day. “We ran hourly meetings with the police and fire brigade,” he said. “The people that had a little bit too much to drink were asked to stop and a couple of them just left on their own accord.” Mr Parlane said there had also been some “learnings” from the event and next year they would be likely to include more toilets. •More photos, pages 12-13

Leslie Greenslade

Rugby fan too slow to duck

Lincoln resident Leslie Greenslade has been involved with rugby administration for more than 20 years. She spoke to Tom Doudney about how her children got her involved, the state of women’s rugby and her favourite game You’ve been pretty heavily involved in rugby with Ellesmere, Canterbury Country, the Lincoln Rugby Club, Lincoln High School and the South Island. What sort of roles have you filled with all of those? With the Lincoln Rugby Club I was JAB (junior advisory board) secretary for a long time and club secretary for three or four years as well; for Ellesmere JAB I was secretary of that for four or five years; with Canterbury I have been the secretary and president and I am now secretary for the second time; I am also a board member on the Ellesmere Sub Union management committee; and for the South Island JAB I have been president and am currently the secretary.

TIRELESS: Leslie Greenslade has made a big behind the scenes contribution with South Island Ellesmere, Canterbury Country, Lincoln and Lincoln High School rugby over a period of more than 20 years. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

I take it that’s all volunteer work? Pretty much. Do you have a day job as well? No, at the high school I am the rugby administrator so I do get paid for that. We have a dairy farm, not that I do much active dairy farming any more – I don’t

have much time. Where is your farm? We are right next to Lincoln, the township is coming out fast to meet us. We are right on the boundary of the Ngai Tahu development, so when it’s finished the township will be right next to us.

How long have you lived there? I have lived in Lincoln since 1984 and in this particular house since 1989, so it’s a long time. Did the township seem a fair way away to begin with? It did! There were quite a few hectares between us and the

township and now there is not. How do you feel about that? I would really rather it wasn’t creeping closer but things change and you just have to adapt. How do you find the time for all that involvement with rugby? Sometimes it’s very busy and pretty stressful. It would be extremely difficult if you had a full-time job because it does take up a lot of hours but it’s rewarding at the same time. In what way do you find it rewarding? For instance with the high school, seeing boys develop into better players. We have seen some go through to being Super Rugby payers like Tom Sanders and Mitchell Dunshea. How did your involvement with rugby start? Pretty much when my boys started playing, I started getting involved in the Lincoln JAB. I went along and you know, some people are suckers and can’t say no, too slow to duck or something. People kept asking you to do more? That’s right, I would be a delegate for something or something needed to be done and I would just do it because it was easier than finding somebody else.

It has been 32 years since Mark Nicholas completed his apprenticeship and almost 13 years since he and wife Leona opened Mark’s Automotive on Springs Rd in Prebbleton. So you could say that experience and knowledge are in ample supply at this busy garage. There are four fully qualified vehicle technicians, two apprentices including four warrant inspectors with a wealth of skills and abilities. There are also three girls in the office to keep things ticking along and of course Rosie the dog who oversees the whole business. The benefits of having such a large team means there is a wide variety of specialty within the employees. All customers who bring their vehicles into the garage can be assured that when they leave they will be travelling in a vehicle that has not only been fixed or serviced but is safe to drive on the road. Leona says it is important now with yearly warrants that owners ensure they are having their vehicles regularly serviced. This can pick up problems before they become bigger and more costly as well as ensure vehicles are able to deal with different conditions on the road. “One of the big things we are picking up now with warrants is that brake pads and discs are a lot more worn out than when people had their cars serviced six monthly,” she says.

The team at Marks Automotive

“It is really important heading into winter that brakes are working at their peak so when conditions become a bit more hazardous you know your vehicle is operating at its best.” Mark’s Automotive is also a supplier of tyres and batteries with a 3-year warranty on all batteries sold. Battery testing is one of the many services provided by the team as well as servicing and diagnostics. Bookings are essential so either phone or come in and meet the team at Mark’s Automotive where client service and satisfaction are the top priority of the whole team.

administration work What are your sons’ names and when did the first start playing? Chris, Adrian and Graeme. About 24 years ago. Have any of them made it reasonably far in the game? Chris and Graeme have played for Canterbury Country seniors, Adrian played for Canterbury Country 18s and then decided representative rugby wasn’t for him. Our daughter plays rugby as well. Is she younger than the boys? Yes she is. Trina is 23 and plays for Burnham/Dunsandel/Irwell. She actually started playing at high school. She didn’t play when she was younger because I didn’t really want the kids playing in four teams in four different directions, so she played netball because that was always at Lincoln. With rugby, even though there are a lot more girls playing it these days, I guess some people might still see it as a bit of a men’s game. Do you find that’s the case? They certainly do. Trina started playing rugby because I was working at the high school and I went with the rugby team and didn’t get to watch her play netball, so she thought she’d play rugby instead.

PATH TO SUCCESS: Leslie Greenslade says seeing former Lincoln High School students like Mitchell Dunshea (above) and Tom Sanders go on to play Super Rugby, for the Crusaders and Chiefs respectively, is one of the rewarding parts of being involved with grassroots rugby.

And has she taken to it pretty well? Yeah, well she made the Canterbury team last year, so she’s not bad either. Do you watch many of your children’s games? I watch as many of their games as I can. I would watch one of them play pretty much every week and two of them play in the same team so that makes it easier.

LAwyERS

How do you choose whose game to go to? It’s pretty much what we can get to. My husband John has to choose as well, and we sort of try and even it up between their games, just roughly. Apart from following your kids’ games, has John had much involvement with rugby himself? No, he has said that he is the

rugby widow, he leaves it to me. Did you ever play any rugby yourself? No, I played netball. I grew up in Southbridge which was a much more conservative area than it is now. If you had your youth again these days, do you think you would? Possibly not, I was more a cricket fan myself. Did you have any interest in rugby before your kids started playing? I’m a good Canterbury person so I always supported the Canterbury team. Do you ever go to Canterbury, Crusaders or All Blacks games? Yes, I go and watch them when I can but sometimes if I’ve already watched three games of rugby for the day I just want to curl up in front of the TV and watch where it’s warm. But yes, I do like the live games and certainly go to the All Blacks when they are here and some of the Crusaders and Canterbury games and I watched a few women’s games last year. Do you have a favourite game that you have watched? The Crusaders v Waratahs when they absolutely smashed them (the Crusaders bet the

I don’t generally like watching one-sided games, I usually prefer better contests but that was one of those ones that stands out. Apart from rugby do you have any other hobbies or interests? I don’t have a lot of time for anything other than rugby but I am a pretty avid sports watcher of anything. I used to play touch before I got injured. You injured yourself playing touch? No, I actually stuffed my knee playing netball. I used to play that too, until I had ACL replacement surgery. I used to play netball a lot. Was that a while ago that you had that injury? It was a bit over 10 years ago. I did play touch again after that but it’s not the same when your knee is sore. Do you think you will be involved in organising rugby for quite a long time to come? I’m still a bit slow to duck, so, yes, I think so. I’m a little bit interested in pushing girls and women’s rugby, there are still barriers for them to be playing.

University’s Mrs O farewelled

„„ By Bridget Rutherford JOAN O’LOUGHLIN had seen it all in her 32 years of being a mother away from home to Lincoln University students. She left such a mark, the university’s cafe and bar was named after her when it opened in 2001. Mrs O’s has been an institution ever since. Mrs O’Loughlin passed away on February 17, and was farewelled on February 25. She was 89. Starting at the university in 1966, Mrs O’Loughlin was a cleaner and tea attendant largely in Hudson Hall. But in turn, she became a second mother to many students living on campus. One of those students was Paul Bolger – son of then Prime Minister Jim Bolger.

“Mrs Bolger used to phone quite a lot to see how he was getting on, but he was generally quiet and studious,” Mrs O’Loughlin said in Lincoln’s Alumni News after retiring in 1998. At the time, she said there was “never a dull moment”, and had many stories about the pranks and shenanigans she witnessed during her work. There was one occasion when someone balanced containers of water on broom handles outside each bedroom door, and took out all the corridor light bulbs. In the middle of the night, the mystery prankster yelled ‘flood,’ so everyone came rushing out of their doors splashing water throughout the corridor. Mrs O’Loughlin not only looked after students. In 1974, overseas athletes stayed at Lincoln while they competed at the Commonwealth Games.

Lincoln Alumni and Development Office heritage writer Ian Collins said Mrs O’Loughlin brought a warm and caring attitude to the halls. “She remembered students’ birthdays and made them cakes, and reassured parents that their children living in the halls were being looked after.” He said it was a unique situation having a campus facility named after a member of Lincoln’s support services. Mrs O’Loughlin’s daughter, Jo-Ann O’Loughlin said her mother loved the campus atmosphere and life working among the students. “My mother always said: ‘Your working days are the best days of your life’, and she felt very lucky to work at Lincoln.” When Mrs O’Loughlin retired from Lincoln, she was one of the longest serving on the staff.

REMEMBERED: Joan O’Loughlin, affectionately known as Mrs O at Lincoln University, was farewelled on February 25. FIRST LOOK: This is what a major new commercial development in the Rolleston Square shopping centre, between Masefield Drive and McCauley St, will look like. The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery and Noel Leeming, with a combined floor space of 7200 sq m, will open their doors late this year. These stores plan to employ about 60 full-time staff. Rolleston Retail leasing agent Jeff Vesey said there would also be a range of retail, service and health tenants.

Bid to lift motor-cyclist safety SELWYN motor-cyclists are being offered the opportunity to develop their skills so they can be safer on the road. The district council is offering motor-cyclists the opportunity to receive vouchers so they can attend motor-cycle skills training for free. Sessions are being held in March and April. The risk of being killed or injured on the road is 21 times higher for a motor-cyclist than for a car driver, according to the 2016 New Zealand Household Travel Survey. From 2012 to 2016, there were 47 motor-cycle crashes in Selwyn, resulting in five fatalities, 27 serious injuries and 25 minor injuries. District road safety coordinator Ngaire Tinning said the figures were concerning and the district council had originally offered the ‘Live to Ride’ training in 2013 to try to reduce the number and severity of crashes in Selwyn. A total of 47 Selwyn motor-cyclists have participated in the programme since 2013. While motor-cyclist numbers are increasing, the number of motor-cyclists involved in crashes in Selwyn from 2012 to 2016 has now reduced from 58 in the 2007-2011 period.

UPSKILLING: The ‘Ride Forever’ training sessions will provide the opportunity to attend motorcycle skills coaching.

The ‘Ride Forever’ training being offered this year provides the opportunity to attend motor-cycle skills coaching, where people can refresh their skills, and learn and practice new techniques. The courses will be delivered by New Zealand Transport Agency-qualified trainers and will include training to develop braking, handling and safe driving skills. Course options are at four different levels – gold, silver, bronze and urban.

Mrs Tinning said the course offered motor-cyclists the opportunity to learn how to assess risks, adopt safer rider positions on the road to increase their visibility to drivers and avoid actions that may cause crashes while riding. “The course provides a hands-on opportunity to learn practical skills that can be applied throughout the rest of your riding life,” she said. The courses are already

subsidised by Ride Forever. The district council has 20 vouchers available for local residents, which will cover the remaining $20 or $50 cost usually paid by the motor-cyclist. The vouchers are valid until May 31. •To register or find out more about the vouchers and training sessions, contact ngaire.tinning@ selwyn.govt.nz or phone 347 2901.

Indoor sports facility a step closer to reality „„ By Tom Doudney AN INDOOR sporting courts facility at Rolleston’s Foster Park is closer to becoming a reality. The facility would cater to sports like netball and basketball. A report to tomorrow’s district council meeting recommends appointing a 10-person project steering group, completing an options and budget analysis, and confirming building specifications. The Foster Park Masterplan consulted on in 2011-2012 recognised the need for such a facility and proposed that it could be located either by the Selwyn Aquatic Centre or at the Brooklands Dr end of Foster Park. Subsequent analysis determined the site next to the aquatic centre would be too small. The report to tomorrow’s meeting cited Selwyn’s rapid population growth and youthful demographics compared to other districts as the reason why it was needed. It proposed that the steering group include representatives from the Selwyn Netball Centre, the Selwyn United Football Club, Canterbury Basketball and the Selwyn Sports Trust, as well as Lincoln Event Centre manager Ginny Bowden, Selwyn Aquatic Centre manager Kathy Moore and other district council staff members.

Global temperatures rising Lincoln Envirotown Trust project manager Dave Fitzjohn writes on why you should take part in Earth Hour this year Lincoln Envirotown Trust will again be running a number of Earth Hour Events this month to encourage environmental awareness. Earth Hour this year is to be celebrated on March 25 and we encourage everyone to switch off their lights on this night to participate in the symbolic resource-saving that we all need to be aware of. Earth’s 2016 surface temperatures were the warmest since modern record-keeping began in 1880, according to independent analyses by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. This makes 2016 the third year in a row to set a new record for global average surface temperatures. Most of the warming occurred in the past 35 years, with 16 of the 17 warmest years on record occurring since 2001. The science is now very clear that our rapid increases in consumption (and consequential production) with its effects on our carbon emissions has been a major cause of this warming.

TOPIC OF CONVERSATION: Then deputy mayor Sarah Walters speaking at last year’s Kim Hill discussion, an annual Earth Hour event held at Lincoln University. ​

It makes Earth Hour, which is aimed at encouraging us to focus on our electricity use, a symbolic gesture of growing importance. In New Zealand, with much of our electricity coming from renewable sources, fuel for transport is perhaps even more

important. Earth Hour started as a lightsout event in Sydney. It has now grown to engage more than 7000 towns and cities worldwide. Lighting on civic buildings and structures are switched off between 8.30pm and 9.30pm for Earth Hour and people are encouraged to participate. The World Wildlife Foundation states that Earth Hour’s aim is to “encourage an interconnected global community to share the opportunities and challenge of creating a Sustainable World.”

Pat Palmer, of Prebbleton, writes about a proposal to improve flows in the Selwyn River using water from the Central Plains Water scheme What good news that people are getting serious about boosting the low Selwyn River flows with Rakaia River water from Central Plains Water. Perhaps about one per cent of the Rakaia’s flow would be enough. Fish and Game and assorted

greenie groups could pay the same as irrigators, or CPW might make a gift. As for polluting Te Waihora, the swan, goose and duck excrement needs flushing out. A few more nutrients in the Pacific might improve the fishing at Birdlings Flat. Les Wood, of Lincoln, writes about plans for a new bridge over the Liffey Stream I see that the secret projects department of the Selwyn District Council is alive and well.

Expressions of Interest Trustee Position

Lemonwood Grove School is excited to announce an opportunity for friends and whanau of the school, as well as the wider community, to tour through our school and see the facilities. This open evening will run from 4-6pm on Wednesday the 8th March. Representatives of staff and the board of trustees will be onsite to answer questions you may have about the school. There is no need to pre-register, just come to the main office at the school.

Resource Management Consultants Resource Consents It has come to our notice that a bridge over the widest part of the Liffey Stream is in the pipeline. No notification, however, to immediate neighbours of this plan for the end of the first walkway on the left of Ryelands Drive crossing to the land adjacent to the temporary year 1 and 2 campus of Lincoln Primary School opposite, with extensive changes to the walkway included. I thought the school was temporary but I could be totally incorrect in this assumption, perhaps I could be enlightened. There is already access to the eastern side of the Liffey via two bridges in close proximity so I fail to see the need for spending thousands of dollars of ratepayers’ money on this unnecessary addition to our landscape. District council chief executive David Ward responds – The council has been working with the Lincoln Community Committee for the past two years on the layout and conceptual design of a new bridge for pedestrians and cyclists across the Liffey Stream and improvements to the pathways in the Liffey Reserve. The proposed pathway and bridge location have recently been approved by the committee. Additionally, property owners on Moffat Drive and Ryelands Drive nearest to the proposed bridge have also been notified of the proposal (seven properties in total). A consent has not yet been lodged for the proposed bridge, but this process may require formal notification of the proposal.

The council is also planning communication to the wider community once the details of the project have been confirmed following the completion of the consenting process. The Lincoln Community Committee has been very positive about this project which seeks to improve walking and cycling connections for local residents, including school children. We see the bridge and paths as an asset to the Lincoln community which will help open up the reserve to make it more accessible to the community, with the bridge as an attractive landscape feature. Anyone who has questions or concerns about the project is welcome to phone the council on 347 2800 and we would be happy to discuss the proposal. •The Selwyn Times asked for and received further information on the project from the district council, including that: The estimated cost of the timber bridge is around $100,000. Currently detailed design is being undertaken. Depending on consenting, works are planned to take place between April and June. Resource and Building consents will be required for the bridge, and consenting requirements may put the time frames above back, depending on notification requirements. The school has leased the site adjacent to Lincoln Esplanade until May 2019.

ACHIEVERS

Scholarship for student A DARFIELD teenager who once struggled to be part of conversations has risen to become an outstanding student since receiving a cochlear implant. Jack Dixon, 18, has been awarded a Southern Hearing Charitable Trust scholarship to assist him financially with his study at Lincoln University. Having received a cochlear implant at the age of 11, he fashioned an impressive leadership, academic and sporting record during his five years as a boarder at St Bede’s College. He was a prefect in 2016. Southern Hearing Charitable Trust chairman David Kent said Jack was an outstanding young man and the scholarship would assist him during study for a Bachelor of Science degree. Jack’s desire to become a leader and role model with the cochlear implant and deaf communities was an outstanding attribute as he would be able to give advice and potentially assist other teenagers with cochlear implants who might be considering tertiary education. “His ability to relate to them will be important,” Mr Kent said. From once having to struggle to be a part of conversations, the cochlear implant has allowed Jack to actively participate in many

different areas. “Being physically active is important to me,” he said. “I love to go running and participate in a variety of sports activities. In my last year at school I played for the tennis seniors and was goalkeeper in the under 19 football team.” Jack’s academic record at St Bede’s was compelling. He was awarded academic honours pockets in 2014 and 2015 for his achievements in NCEA level one and two and last year in level

three received excellence endorsement awards for chemistry, geography, religious education and earth and space science and 84 level three excellence credits. He also won the NZ Federation for Deaf Children Excellence for a year 13 student award and was overall winner in all year levels. “For my science degree I intend to major in land, water and environmental science which will fit with my deep interest in the environment and sustainability,” Jack said.

Dealing with a barking dog

Summer

Having a barking dog in your street can be annoying for both neighbours and dog owners.

events popular

It’s a common nuisance, but often it can be successfully resolved, allowing you to enjoy some peace and quiet. The Council’s Animal Control team often deals with barking complaints and has a number of tips on how to resolve them. “Barking can have a variety of causes,” says Animal Control Team Leader Steve Clarke. “Boredom, anxiety, loneliness, lack of exercise, fleas, hunger or a change in home or environment are common reasons why barking occurs.” Steve recommends trying to work out what is causing the barking and trying different things to remedy it. For example if you think your dog may be bored try leaving them with toys to entertain them. If you think they may be lonely have someone visit them or drop them off to a friend or family member so they have some company. For more advice visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/barking If the barking doesn’t improve you can try contacting a dog behaviourist, enrolling your dog in training or contacting the Council’s Animal Control team on 347 2910 for advice. If a barking dog nearby is bothering you, try speaking to the owner initially. “Often issues only occur when no one is home at the property so the owner isn’t aware of the problem,” says Steve. If the problem doesn’t improve after speaking with the owner then you can call the Council’s Animal Control team on 347 2910 to report a problem. It is helpful to keep a record of when the barking has occurred as this can help identify what is triggering it.

Over 2,500 people have been enjoyed some of the many events held as part of the Council’s ‘Summer in Selwyn’ event series. The series has been running since January – with the Teddy Bear’s Picnic drawing a crowd of around 900 children and their families, not counting the many bears putting in an appearance. The free outdoor screening of The Goonies at Lincoln also attracted a large crowd of around 250 people to The Green behind the library (pictured).

The Council’s new School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler has had a busy start to her role and has been working with a number of local schools on safety initiatives. Stephanie has visited all Selwyn primary schools to provide them with information on bike and scooter safety information they can display around the school and include in their newsletters.

Greendale School recently received a visit from Constable Rick and Stephanie for bus monitor training for senior students and bus safety training for the whole school. Pupils have high visibility safety vests to wear which helps them be seen by motorists when getting on and off the bus and while they are on roadsides. Stephanie is also planning to work with West Rolleston School to develop a school travel plan covering safe walking, cycling and scootering options as well as travel by car. “It’s a good idea for parents to walk, scoot or bike with their children where possible to teach them about road safety and how to safely cross roads. High visibility vests are also a good idea and they should wear a helmet if biking or scootering,” she says. Around schools parents and other motorists also need to slow down and watch out for children before and after school.

Dealing with a barking dog

Summer

Having a barking dog in your street can be annoying for both neighbours and dog owners.

events popular

It’s a common nuisance, but often it can be successfully resolved, allowing you to enjoy some peace and quiet. The Council’s Animal Control team often deals with barking complaints and has a number of tips on how to resolve them. “Barking can have a variety of causes,” says Animal Control Team Leader Steve Clarke. “Boredom, anxiety, loneliness, lack of exercise, fleas, hunger or a change in home or environment are common reasons why barking occurs.” Steve recommends trying to work out what is causing the barking and trying different things to remedy it. For example if you think your dog may be bored try leaving them with toys to entertain them. If you think they may be lonely have someone visit them or drop them off to a friend or family member so they have some company. For more advice visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/barking If the barking doesn’t improve you can try contacting a dog behaviourist, enrolling your dog in training or contacting the Council’s Animal Control team on 347 2910 for advice. If a barking dog nearby is bothering you, try speaking to the owner initially. “Often issues only occur when no one is home at the property so the owner isn’t aware of the problem,” says Steve. If the problem doesn’t improve after speaking with the owner then you can call the Council’s Animal Control team on 347 2910 to report a problem. It is helpful to keep a record of when the barking has occurred as this can help identify what is triggering it.

Over 2,500 people have been enjoyed some of the many events held as part of the Council’s ‘Summer in Selwyn’ event series. The series has been running since January – with the Teddy Bear’s Picnic drawing a crowd of around 900 children and their families, not counting the many bears putting in an appearance. The free outdoor screening of The Goonies at Lincoln also attracted a large crowd of around 250 people to The Green behind the library (pictured).

The Council’s new School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler has had a busy start to her role and has been working with a number of local schools on safety initiatives. Stephanie has visited all Selwyn primary schools to provide them with information on bike and scooter safety information they can display around the school and include in their newsletters.

Greendale School recently received a visit from Constable Rick and Stephanie for bus monitor training for senior students and bus safety training for the whole school. Pupils have high visibility safety vests to wear which helps them be seen by motorists when getting on and off the bus and while they are on roadsides. Stephanie is also planning to work with West Rolleston School to develop a school travel plan covering safe walking, cycling and scootering options as well as travel by car. “It’s a good idea for parents to walk, scoot or bike with their children where possible to teach them about road safety and how to safely cross roads. High visibility vests are also a good idea and they should wear a helmet if biking or scootering,” she says. Around schools parents and other motorists also need to slow down and watch out for children before and after school.

SOUTHBRIDGE’S David Kerr and his team are in what he says is “a race against time” if he is to defend his South Island midget car title this Saturday at Ruapuna Speedway. Kerr, a seven-time winner of the event, said what started off as a persistent misfire was now “a bit of a major” with a strip down of the engine revealing a broken valve seat. “We had been chasing the misfire for a couple of shows. What we have now is an expensive and extensive piece of machining being required,” Kerr said. “I’m quietly confident that we will get the job done but it’s been one of those summers for us with problems.” With his racing future uncertain Kerr, was keen to pull ahead of Trevor Hall who also has seven South Island titles to his name. “We (the team) are all getting busier away from the track and its also getting harder to find sponsor-

From beautiful coats to stylish ankle boots, there are gorgeous cosy garments ready to wear when we have cooler days. statement coats are always best purchased very early in the season when the selection is at its best. We have pictured the stunning Fever of London coat which has a fur trim (fur is once again a major trend for winter). This coat is $379 and is a beautiful tailored fit. We have also pictured the White Chalk Dianna top which is casual and quirky and is an easy and comfortable weekend piece to wear with your jean ($99). The fluoro-floral fabric adds an interesting twist to a classic striped top.

There’s a bunch of guys who would do anything to win just one of them, but I’m not ready to hand that old trophy over yet.” Kerr saw Gary Chadwick as a real threat, particularly since he received some help with his car and engine set up from former national champion Peter Hunnibell.

“Since those Auckland guys gave him a hand, Gary has been going great. They’ve really got that car sorted but realistically there are others who you would never right off,” he said. “Tom Lumsden (Southbridge), Glen Durie (Rolleston) and Nevil Basalaj (Nelson) all know what it takes to win big events. A lot can happen in a 25-lap race.” •Saturday night’s meeting starts at 6.30pm.

His column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us THE YELLOW admiral butterfly, kahu kowhai (vanessa itea) is one of two admirals found in New Zealand. The other, the red admiral, is endemic to New Zealand. The yellow admiral was first collected in 1769-70 when Captain James Cook circumnavigated New Zealand in the Endeavour, but the butterfly is also found in Australia, Lord Howe and Norfolk Islands.

Adults feed on nectar from many flower species but are fond of larger hebe species and buddleja (butterfly bush). The nectar is a ‘reward’ from the plant to carry the pollen from plant to plant for pollination. To attract these beauties to your garden you need to leave some stinging nettle for the female admirals to lay their

eggs on and a range of flowering plants for the adults. Two species of wasp parasites are the yellow admirals’ main natural enemies in New Zealand. One these species was introduced by government entomologists as a biological control agent for cabbage white butterfly, but is now known to attack the pupae of admirals.

It’s time to prepare for autumn

DISPLAY: Autumn colours will soon be with us but there are still plenty of jobs to do in the garden such as harvesting your pumpkin patch.

AS WE head towards autumn, we can reflect upon an extremely difficult summer in the garden. Right throughout New Zealand, there have been incredible variations of temperatures, rainfall, wind velocity and cloud coverage. A very trying summer for all, now is the time for final harvesting of summer fruit and vegetables and the planting of your winter vegetable garden. Hopefully, early autumn rain will bring relief to the drought-stricken parts of New Zealand. Vegetables to be harvested in March include beans, beetroot, cabbage, carrots, celery, corn, cucumbers, eggplants, jerusalem artichokes, lettuce, melons, onions, potatoes, pumpkins, radish, silverbeet, tomatoes and yams. You may wish to save seed for next summer’s garden. Simply clean and dry the seed, then store them in a dry part of your garden shed. Don’t forget to clearly label them. Prepare areas for your winter vegetable garden by thorough digging, adding compost and ensuring

there is adequate drainage. Winter veges you can plant up now (either seed or young seedlings). This includes beetroot, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, lettuce, onions, radish, silverbeet, spinach, swedes and turnip. Always try and stagger your plantings to encourage continuous harvesting throughout the season, rather than having all the vegetables mature at the same time. Summer flowering annuals are nearing the end of their flowering season. Time to remove old plants and prepare the areas for your winter displays. Winter flowering annuals to plant now include alyssum, calendulas, cineraria, cornflower, lobelia, nemesia, pansy, primulas, snapdragons, stock and wallflowers. Winter flowering annuals are an excellent means of brightening up dull parts of the garden, either planted in containers or especially in rose gardens where planted roses appear very bare. For example, a mass planting of primula malacoides looks amazing in the winter garden. We are nearing the end

of bulb planting season in the colder parts of New Zealand. As with all plants, thorough preparation of the soil prior to planting the bulbs will produce a better display in spring. Bulbs to plant in March include anemone, daffodil, hyacinth, ixia, lachenalia, freesia, ranunculus, sparaxis, tritonia, tulip and watsonias. The last of the peaches, golden queen, matures in March. Numerous apple and pear varieties are now ripening and eating grapes are now at their sweetest. Cover with netting if birds are a problem. Peach and nectarine trees that have cropped can now be pruned removing old wood and retaining enough new seasons growth for next season’s fruit. It’s always a good idea to maintain tree height at two to three metres to allow for easier picking and for netting if birds become a problem next season. When autumn rains arrive, the renovation of existing lawns or the laying of new lawns can begin. When preparing your site for a new lawn, it is advisable to have a slight slope to allow water to run off, thereby avoiding puddling.

gardening without guesswork The potato tops are yellowing off in an unusual way - and some of the potatoes are hard and have a ring if you cut them in half, and are inedible. Is the yellowing a sign of the potato blight? Can anything be done to prevent it? Another row of potatoes of a different variety next to this look alright. I am not sure what varieties they are.

Question:

Unfortunately, without a doubt your potatoes are infested by the potato, tomato psyllid, an insect that infects the plant with a bacteria that turns the tops yellow and causes the potato to have the symptoms described. Once infected there is no cure, only prevention for the next season’s crop. This is best done by a spray programme during the whole growing season using an insecticide. Your local garden centre will have sprays to help. We recommend following the instructions exactly as stated on the packaging, especially when to stop before harvesting. Crop rotation is another way to help reduce disease.

Why rotate crops? Crop rotation can be used to control pests and diseases that can become established in the soil over time. The changing of crops in a sequence decreases the population of pests as it interrupts their life cycle, and changes their habitat.

It’s all about autumn in the garden. Here’s what you need to prioritise this month Words & Photos Rachel Vogan

Top tasks

Welcome to autumn. For the next three months, it is all about picking ripe produce, preserving any excess and replenishing the hard-working soil in preparation for the next lot of planting in the edible garden. With soil being the engine room of the garden, it’s vital you refuel the earth with organic matter and nutrients before planting out autumn and winter crops. Homemade compost is an easy and economical way to do this and digging it in is always good exercise. Well-rotted animal manures do the job, too, giving the soil a boost and acting like a moisture-retentive sponge. The bonus is that it feeds the worms at the same time. My garden gets both of these and a good sprinkle of general fertiliser before the next crops go in.

Hedges Autumn is a good time to get on top of hedge trimming, especially before the growth slows down in another couple of months. Use the sharpest tools you have – blunt tools make the job so much harder and often cause scraggy edges that can result in dieback and dead patches. Use string lines to help keep your lines straight or try using a can of Dazzle to mark out your lines. Aim to have the bottom of the hedge slightly wider than the top to allow more light to get to the lower leaves.

Fruit Apples, pears, medlars and quinces are all plumping up. If trees are heavily laden with fruit, thin out excess clusters to allow the fruit to mature to a larger size. If you don’t get around to doing this, trees may abort the excess fruit that they cannot sustain. This isn’t a problem, but it does sap more energy out of the plant, so by doing it for the tree, you will get a better result. Evergreen fruits such a feijoa, Chilean guava and citrus would all enjoy a side-dressing of fertiliser now. Sprinkle it around the drip line and water in deeply.

Vegetables Numerous crops are ripe for the picking now; sweet corn, beans, tomatoes, chillies, eggplants, courgettes and cucumbers are all in season. The best time of day to harvest is first thing in the morning or early evening, try to leave the stalk on anything that has one. Leave sweet corn in its husk too, as this extends the shelf life for a good week or two. Before planting out any new seedlings or sowing seeds, replenish the soil with nutrients and organic matter. All brassica seedlings can be planted out now, remember to allow plenty of room between each plant, 50cm at least. Sow new rows of root crops like carrots, radish and beetroot.

Bulbs Start sourcing new season bulbs now. The shops are fully stocked with the new season’s varieties and offering very good specials for large quantities. In the home garden, now is the time to be lifting and digging clumps of existing bulbs. Gently ease the fork under the area and tease away the bulbs carefully. If need be, bulbs can be left above ground, in a cool dry spot away from direct sunlight, for a number of weeks. Aim to have them in the ground by the end of April.

PrePare for the

Roses It’s all about deadheading, watering and feeding for these hard-working shrubs at the moment. Trim back spent flower heads to a new set of leaves, as removing the dead flowers speeds up the re-flowering process. An application of rose food now will give the plants a welcome feed leading into the cooler months. This not only nourishes the plant, but helps keep it healthy, which lowers the risks of it succumbing to pest attack and disease. If the autumn rains haven’t arrived, keep the fluids up to your plants; a deep soaking once or twice a week will keep them in top form.

LET’S GET

GardEninG INTELLIGRO OFFERS:

By now most of your summer vegetables will have done their dash and will be ready to be removed. Get rid of the plants as soon as they are all done, and get ready to prepare the beds for the next round of planting. To replace the nutrients that the last plants have used, you will need to add Organic Compost, Blood and Bone and some Sheep Pellets.

DARFIELD

Darfield - a Town on the Canterbury Plains Darfield traces its origins back to the 1800s; first serving as a farming support town then a key station and largest town on the Midland railway line, between Christchurch and the West Coast. Strategically placed, Darfield sits at a junction of roads leading east to the city, over the Southern Alps, inland along highway 77 to highway 72 and out to state highway 1. The Waimakariri River is also not far away, giving a clue to the fertile surrounding farmland that supports grain growing as well as sheep, beef and dairy farming. Sitting under the north-west arch, the town has schools (preschools, primary and secondary), community groups, playing fields, interest and sports clubs, walkways, good shopping and more. Sport is well supported whether it is rugby, netball, tennis, indoor or outdoor bowls, running, squash, swimming, tennis, shooting, equestrian, BMX, skate-boarding, motor sports or fishing. Artistic and musical pursuits and instruction are also available as are youth and community groups, and Anglican, Baptist, contemporary and Roman Catholic churches. All contribute to make Darfield an ideal satellite town for Christchurch, popular with families, explaining why Darfield’s population increased dramatically from

830 in 1971 to 1,935 in 2013, when people looked for homes elsewhere after the Christchurch earthquakes. Undeterred by Darfield being a short distance from the September 2010 7.1 earthquake, people moved to the town for

Darfield has it all

During the week, Darfield is a busy town with locals as well as travellers passing through and stopping to take advantage of what is on offer, while people living further afield head there for a day out. The town has a diverse range of shops and businesses, many of which line South Terrace (its main street). There is a mini supermarket, pharmacy, drapery, bookshop, art, gift, craft and garden supplies stores, as well as service providers, farming suppliers and manufacturing businesses. Health care includes doctors, physiotherapy and a hospital and there are other services such as a library, volunteer fire brigade, hotel and motel accommodation. Make Darfield a day out. Browse the shops for interesting curios, something different, or to stock up on supplies. Stroll along South Terrace, and its history is there to find from the old prison and Tussock

Square where much can be learned to its war memorial at the western end of town. For a little more exercise, a pleasant walk is from the Darfield Domain along Hornden Street and through McHughs Plantation. Take a picnic, pick up a takeaway or pop into one of the well patronised cafés or restaurants afterwards for a coffee, snack or meal. You will find delicious food served in pleasant surroundings, from dawn though to later in the evening. Visit in spring, and the blossom trees lining the main street will be in flower. They promise an end to the snow, something that Darfield gets a little of, with it slightly higher than Kirwee which is just five minutes’ drive east, giving another reason to pop into this interesting town.

This unique hogget competition gives farmers the opportunity to benchmark their flocks against others at both local and national level as well as giving them the chance to compare different farming systems and learn from other competitors as well as the judging panel. “The achievments of New Zealand farmers deserve more recognition and acknowledgement,” national convemor Stephen Rabbidge says. “The New Zealand Ewe Hogget competition is in its 21st year and continues to grow momentum in promoting excellence within the sheep industry. It is now more important than ever for sheep farmers to have an efficient and profitable business. This competition provides the ideal opportunity for entrants to compete and compare to ensure future success,” Mr Rabbidge says. North Island entries close on April 10 and South Island entries on April 21, with judging to follow. The National Final Judging will take place in the North Island on April 22-24 and in the South Island on May 1-4. For the first time the presentation dinner

is to take place in Napier on June 8, where all breed finalists will receive their awards. The overall winner will be announced at the end of the evening. The competition will conclude later in the year with a field day on the winner’s property. Competition organisers thank the sponsors, Alliance Group, MerialAncare, New Zealand Sheepbreeders, Ballance Agri-Nutrients, Beef+Lamb New

Zealand, NZ Farmer, and PGG Wrightson Livestock, for their belief in this grassroots competition. Greg Burgess of New Zealand Sheepbreeders’ Assn offers a “massive thanks to the many volunteers who believe in this competition, contacting farmers encouraging entries, and giving up their time and effort for the duration of this event.”

It is now more important than ever for sheep farmers to have an efficient and profitable business.

Farmers warned to watch for velvetleaf The pest plant velvetleaf should be high on cropping farmers’ minds over the next few months, Environment Canterbury says. The Ministry for Primary Industries recently sent out an alert to this effect – it is on the website www.mpi.govt.nz/alerts. “Left to spread, this invasive pest can quickly impact crops, severely reducing yield and grazing capacity, and impose high costs through lost productivity, increased stock management and lost income,” Environment Canterbury principal management advisor biosecurity Laurence Smith says. Velvetleaf was introduced to New Zealand as a contaminant in fodder beet seed from Europe in 2015. “With over 500 farms having received at least one of the six affected seed lines in Canterbury, there is a real risk of spread both within and to other properties,” Mr Smith says. “Not all plants will have been found so it is highly likely seed will have matured and contributed to a seed bank in the soil. “Farmers will need to be vigilant this season, which runs until May. They should search crops to prevent seeding and make

sure seed is not spread by stock, vehicles and machinery.” The Ministry for Primary Industries is managing the velvetleaf incursion response nationally and is assisting farmers with information and advice. Environment Canterbury, in partnership with MPI, is helping affected farmers formulate plans to manage the pest and prevent its spread. “Your farm management plan should include on-farm biosecurity so preventing the spread of velvetleaf and other pests is top of mind at all times,” Mr Smith says. “Farmers can implement farm biosecurity measures on their land by making sure they are notified when people intend to enter their property and implementing hygiene protocols such as checking and cleaning machines and vehicles.” If you have found velvetleaf or would like more information, contact the Ministry for Primary Industries on 0800 80 99 66. For free farm biosecurity signs for your property contact Environment Canterbury at ecinfo@ecan.govt.nz.

Outdoor Splendour

Vondom

Just as any other room in your home requires planning, so do outdoor spaces. We look at a few areas that bear some careful consideration to achieve a functional, stylish and relaxing backyard retreat this summer. Outdoor rooms have their own unique challenges. As well as giving thought to architectural style, colour palettes, traffic flow, spatial requirements and comfort, it’s important to factor in shelter from the elements and privacy from the next-door neighbours. Important things to consider if you are reinventing your outdoor area from scratch or embarking on a big project are orientation and layout. Exposure to sun and protection from the wind, proximity to the house, pool, and views, and consideration for the kinds of activities to accommodate cooking, dining, entertaining, lounging, and sun bathing, are also essential elements

to think about. If you’re contemplating tackling a largescale project or even if your outdoor area could benefit from some bespoke elements, employ a landscape architect and an interior designer (many of whom have experience designing outdoor areas). Many have the ability to successfully design and manufacture custom-made furniture to suit your specific needs or have access to discounted products that will save you money.By bringing in the professionals, you can rely on their extensive knowledge and experience to design a functional and beautiful space you will love entertaining and relaxing in.

Consider access between indoor preparation areas to outdoor dining areas for optimal practicality. Ideally your outdoor area should be easily accessible from the house, with food preparation areas located near your indoor kitchen to reduce trips back and forth. If this is not a viable option you may want to think about designing a dedicated area outdoors to a combined cooking and dining area. Heating is an additional benefit, which will enable you to enjoy your outdoor areas in comfort for longer. Investigate the variety of options on the market that best suits your requirements and current set up.

Integrate an awning or sun sails to patios adjoining the house or a sturdy multidirectional umbrella for shade over dining and lounge areas. Gazebos and pergolas are stand-alone structures at the bottom of the garden or beside the pool are a good way to provide respite from the sun and wind. Always work together with your designer or builder to ensure the style of any standalone structure is in keeping with the architecture of your home for a cohesive look.

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

The success of Faringdon Faringdon began in 2013 and in four years has grown at amazing speed with 1,200 sections sold; a figure which exceeded all the developer’s expectations. Of the latest three phases under construction, stage seventeen is almost finished with ninety percent sold and titles expected in two weeks. Stage eighteen is eighty percent sold with titles due in April, and stage nineteen for which titles are scheduled to be released in July, is already fifty percent sold. Currently engineering drawings are being completed for stage twenty with just five more stages planned for what will be known as Faringdon. The developers are considering releasing stage twenty early, due to the demand for sections with sales made every weekend; a reflection of the growth of Rolleston. “People are attracted to Faringdon for lifestyle reasons,” suggests Bruce Harvey, Hughes Development Marketing Director. “People were looking for what Faringdon offers. It’s met their expectations, many of whom rented in Faringdon and loved it so much they decided to build there. Thirty percent of our buyers are Rolleston people.” The design of Faringdon was based on Northwood. In each case, a master plan has been created with an end in mind so a complete package is offered. This includes extensive reserve areas for the community to enjoy and wider roads giving a perception of space. The latest three stages constitute approximately 200 lots, representing two thirds of the land recently purchased from the Meadows family. This borders the south side of Faringdon close to the new primary

school, Lemonwood Grove which opened this year. Close to sixty students began at Lemonwood Grove on day one, with the school already having the capacity for 450 students and plans in place for further expansion to cater for approximately 750 students. Bruce says that the new primary and secondary schools have been real attractions for those considering Faringdon, along with the sportsgrounds and popular aquatic centre as all are within walking distance, as is the town centre. Greenspace has been generously allocated in every stage with thought being given to a tennis court facility in stage nineteen, that will be attractively landscaped to fit with its surrounding environment to become a focal point and gathering place for residents. The retail precinct has also expanded Faringdon’s infrastructure. South Point is due to open at the end of March this year with ninety percent already leased. This will include Hooked Fish & Chips, The Selwyn School of Dance, A Pocket Full of Spices, The Pedal Pusher, New Order Clothing and Accessories, and Faringdon Convenience Store and Post Shop. There is also a new impressive show home village planned for Faringdon in 2017, where a good number of the major building companies will be able to showcase what they offer. Bruce says this will be the largest show home village in Canterbury, if not New Zealand with it expected to be operational by July this year.

Show Homes - the ultimate way to shop around Across the Selwyn district, we are blessed with an extensive array of very good quality show homes. Building companies build show homes to demonstrate their workmanship, display innovative design ideas and present a snapshot into a new and luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the latest in materials, fittings and fixtures. A show home can inspire you in a way nothing else can. You can absorb the ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials and technology. You can ask questions, take notes and compare. You can see at a glance features you would love to emulate or would avoid when building your home. Best of all, you will see the building companies’ attention to detail. Show homes are the perfect way to get a

good idea of pricing, discover good quality and value, learn about superior use of space, future-proofing, ongoing maintenance and long-term returns. So what are you waiting for? Check out our maps, grab a notepad and pencil and begin the exciting project of building your own home.

Ange brought her favourite orange lights to us. So we worked with her to build a colour palette around them.
