Wells dry up over large area

Garage rises from ashes „„ By Tom Doudney EIGHTEEN MONTHS after it was gutted by fire, Andrew and Judy Radford have their Tai Tapu Motors garage back, thanks to the good will and many weekends of hard work by friends and locals. Fire ripped through the building in September 2015, also destroying the Radfords brand

new $50,000 Holden Colorado ute. The rebuild is now complete, except for the plumbing, which should be finished this week. Mr Radford said about 20 friends, family and community members with skills in building, plumbing, drainage and electrical work had given their time for free over the weekends dur-

ing the last 18 months to help rebuild the garage. The support from the community had been very humbling. “When the fire happened, a lot of farmers and other people would turn up for a warrant of fitness or a small repair and tried to give me a cheque for $500 or $1000, which I just had arguments over and tore them

up,” he said. “I said that anyone was more than welcome to come and help [build it], but I wouldn’t take any money.” The Radfords were left with just $40,000 from their insurance pay out to rebuild the garage, due to $60,000 going on asbestos removal and clean up costs. •Turn to page 4

„„ By Tom Doudney FALLING groundwater levels around Selwyn are keeping well drillers and pump installers busy as they have to go deeper for water. Pump technician Mike Taylor said in recent weeks he has had dozens of clients who had needed to put in a new pump or have new wells drilled due to their existing ones drying up. “Southbridge through to Irwell, Leeston, Weedons and West Melton seem to be the main areas affected that I’ve come across,” he said. “I had one client over in West Melton where I pulled the pump out and the water level was almost 3m below the pump, so it has dropped quite dramatically.” While wells had dried up in small areas in other years, it was unusual for such a large area to be affected, Mr Taylor said. “We’re just having to go a wee bit deeper. If they’ve got a big enough well than we’re able to go to a submersible type pump, otherwise they’ve had to go to new wells.” •Turn to page 4

WE ALL know it’s dry out there (except for the weekend and the last day or two) and more evidence of bigger problems to come on page 1 today. Some of the district’s wells are drying up, and that should ring alarm bells. Pump technician Mike Taylor says in recent weeks he’s had dozens of clients who had needed to put in a new pump or have new wells drilled due to their existing ones drying up. Trouble spots include Southbridge, Weedons and West Melton. A very wet winter might not be such a bad thing. A great effort at the weekend from young Weedons rower Logan Anderson (see page 26), who won the under-17 single sculls at the South Island secondary school champs. – Barry Clarke

Early pub closing confirmed

„„ By Tom Doudney A MANDATORY closing time of 2am for Selwyn’s taverns will come into force from July 31 – but most publicans say they’re not fazed. The Local Alcohol Policy was approved at Wednesday’s district council meeting after almost four years of negotiation and dispute. The policy will come into effect on April 24, with the provisions on trading hours for licensed premises 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. Darfield Hotel owner Ray O’Connell said having to close at 2am would not have much impact on his business. “To move from 3am to 2am is not a big drama,” he said. “It’s probably only busy two or three times a year for us during that period so we can live without it.” However, Prebbleton Tavern manager Shannon Gilmore wasn’t happy about the change. Mr Gilmore said he didn’t

believe reducing his operating hours by one hour would have much impact on reducing alcohol-related harm. “In a country community environment, [being able to stay open until 3am] is extremely handy for events and functions and to have to now go and get a special licence for one hour seems to be a bit bureaucratic and is only going to increase costs,” he said.

He believed people who bought their alcohol from the supermarket and drank at home were a more significant contributor to alcohol-related harm than people drinking at pubs. But other tavern owners who spoke to the Selwyn Times said they didn’t mind the 2am closing time. Dunsandel Tavern owner Karen Stone said her licence was already for a 2am closing

time and the policy did not bother her. “Honestly, I think by 2am people have had enough [of drinking]. In the city it might be different,” she said. Her business included a cafe and restaurant so she was not reliant on people drinking in the tavern for her income. •District councillor fires back at medical officer of health, page 7

In Brief FIRE RESTRICTIONS Fire restrictions have been reduced in Selwyn’s rural plains area, with the district moving from a prohibited to a restricted fire season. Principal rural fire officer Douglas Marshall said recent rain had helped reduce the fire risk. Under a restricted fire season, only gas barbecues, crop residue and rubbish fires inside contained drums are allowed in rural areas. Any other fires can only be lit if a permit has been obtained from the district council. CAR CRASH VICTIM DIES A woman has died after a crash between two cars on State Highway 73, near Lake Pearson, on Sunday. Police were alerted to the crash at 5pm. The woman had been trapped in her vehicle and was transported to Christchurch Hospital by helicopter but didn’t survive her injuries. Three other people received injuries in the crash but none were life-threatening. CAR SEATS The district council is partnering with SeatSmart to offer a recycling programme for expired or damaged car seats. Selwyn parents can take their unwanted car seats to the Pines Resource Recovery Park for a discounted charge of $5. Until June, the district council is offering a collection point at Rolleston and subsidising the processing cost.

Lagoon benefits from new role A NEW biodiversity officer has been tasked with increasing the abundance and variety of native wildlife in a key Selwyn catchment. The district council has signed a memorandum of understanding with Living Water, the Department of Conservation’s 10-year, $20 million partnership with Fonterra. Through the Living Water partnership Fonterra and DOC are working with dairy farmers, iwi, conservation groups, councils, schools and other agencies to improve the health of five key catchments in significant dairying regions throughout the country. The Ararira/LII catchment of Te Waihora /Lake Ellesmere is one of the five Living Water catchments. Under the MOU, Living Water is helping the district council fund its new biodiversity officer Andy Spanton. He will be working with the

DOC operations manager Andy Thompson said the lagoon was a key site for native wildlife in the

catchment. Deputy mayor Malcolm Lyall said he was very happy to see the district council play its part in efforts to support indigenous re-vegetation and increasing biodiversity in Canterbury.

Garage rises from ashes

•From page 1 They are still in a dispute with their insurer over additional public liability cover. They spent $70,000 of their own money on materials for the rebuild but had received discounted materials from suppliers such as

Conqueror International, Roofline, Blair’s Super Tyres and his son Mitchell’s employer, a builder. During the last year, Mr Radford was able to continue doing warrants of fitness in the one remaining work bay which hadn’t been

destroyed by the fire and other repairs outside in the elements. He also started a new business, Tai Tapu Tyres, operating from the same site and is planning to sell the garage to his friend and former employee Bevan Jack, who will take over on April 1.

Wells dry up over a large area •From page 1 An Environment Canterbury spokeswoman said wells up to 20m deep, mostly in the Selwyn Waihora zone, were being affected. She said while irrigation contributed to the situation, groundwater levels were very low this summer after three consecutive winters with little rainfall to replenish the aquifers. “There are full irrigation restrictions on all takes from the Selwyn River,” the spokeswoman said. “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.” District councillor Debra Hasson recently sought answers from ECan after six shallow wells downstream from Lincoln University’s Ashley Dene farm had gone dry within two months of a new 160m bore on the farm coming into operation. Cr Hasson wanted to know why the university

was granted consent in 2014, when the zone was already over-allocated. ECan team leader for consents Sam Beaumont said the university had simply transferred an already consented water allocation from one bore, near the corner of Springs Rd and Gerald St, to the new Ashley Dene bore. “Every time someone comes to do that, we make sure we are not giving out any more water over the year, that they are taking the same volume they always have,” Mr Beaumont said. However Cr Hasson said the new bore was taking water from the Silverstream drainage catchment which connected to the dried up wells and Coes Ford, whereas the university’s previous allocation had taken water from the L2 drainage catchment. The ECan spokeswoman said it was difficult to say whether the operation of the Ashley Dene bore could have affected the downstream wells.

Water take under investigation SAD STATE: The Selwyn River has dried up at Coes Ford apart from a couple of algae covered pools. PHOTO: RICHARD COSGROVE ​ many of these consents were already on restrictions. The other option which will be looked at is a potential ratepayerfunded review of “at the very least” several hundred water take consents in the vicinity of the river but Mr Rule said this would be a longer process. Such a review would enable ECan to look at whether any consents should be altered or revoked. “The focus would be on surface and shallow ground water takes initially,” Mr Rule said.

river. “If you have to attribute the amount of effect on the Selwyn River level, all the science that we know of says that 15 - 20 per cent is attributed to irrigation, the rest of it is just climate,” Mr Lim said. District councillor and zone committee member Murray Lemon said restricting or suspending water takes via a water shortage direction would seem like a “huge experiment to take with someone’s livelihood” if it was not certain whether it would have an effect on the river or not.

„„ By Tom Doudney A PUBLIC meeting for those concerned about the state of the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River will be held at the Springston South Soldiers Memorial Hall on Thursday. The ‘Talk for Water’ will take place from 7-9pm at the hall which is at 433 Days Rd. Organiser and Springston South resident Mike Glover said it was hoped the meeting would help mobilise people into action. “A lot of people are just beaten down by the whole thing and feeling pretty depressed about it,” he said. A panel featuring residents, as well as representatives from Fish and Game, Environment Canterbury and others, will present views and answer questions. Mr Glover said people were welcome to bring river memorabilia such as photos, paintings, stuffed trout or anything else to the meeting. If possible, these should be dropped off between 5 and 6 pm or by arrangement. Anyone with questions should phone Mr Glover on 329 5079 or Matt Olykan on 325 3187.

„„ By Tom Doudney MEASURES TO restrict, suspend or revoke water take consents in a catchment which feeds the ailing Selwyn/ Waikirikiri River will be investigated. The river has had record low flows this summer and has dried up along large stretches, including at once popular swimming spots such as Coes Ford. Environment Canterbury will look into two possible options to help address the situation and report back to the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee. One option is that ECan could issue a temporary water shortage direction allowing it to restrict or suspend taking water from the catchment feeding the river. Under the RMA, a water shortage direction can be applied when there is “a serious temporary shortage of water” which could not have been predicted. It would expire after 14 days but could be renewed. ECan chief operating officer Don Rule said this could potentially affect up to 63 consents in an area south of Rolleston, of which about 46 were thought to have a strong connection to the river.

Bar hours not related to rape culture District councillor Craig Watson writes in response to medical officer of health Alistair Humphrey’s comments on Selwyn’s Local Policy, which was passed on Wednesday with later maximum closing hours for taverns than had initially been proposed. Dr Humphrey said that every time someone in Selwyn died in a car crash, was assaulted or 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” I want to start by saying that I have not been lobbied by a single person before speaking and voting on the Local Alcohol Policy.

Dr Alistair Humphrey responds to Cr Watson In response to Craig Watson’s opinion: •In New Zealand, one half of all violent crimes involve alcohol. •10,000 sexual assaults per year in New Zealand involve a perpetrator affected by alcohol. •About half of all sexual assaults involve alcohol. •Approximately 100 New Zealanders a year die in an alcoholrelated car crash. •About half of all alcoholrelated presentations to Christchurch Hospital Emergency Department occur between 10pm and 4am, peaking at 1am. •Following New South Wales ‘lockout’ laws, which closed bars earlier, non-domestic assault was reduced by half in the Kings Cross area.

Lincoln’s Bede Cordes writes about the Government’s recent confirmation that Lincoln will get a second primary school in 2019 Could the Selwyn Times or Ministry of Education please clarify and confirm that the proposed ‘new’ primary school at Lincoln as mentioned in the Selwyn Times article on March 7 is to be a new stand-alone school from the existing Lincoln Primary? Three options were put to those of us in the community who participated in a survey some time ago; those being for a new ‘stand-alone’ school, a satellite of the existing primary, or splitting the school over two sites. I expect if a board of trustees is to be elected, it will stand-alone? Could the Ministry of Education please confirm this? The Ministry of Education’s head of sector enablement and support Katrina Casey responds Following community engagement, the preferred option was a new year 1-8 primary school in the Lincoln area. The majority of participants rated this as their most preferred option. Last week, the Minister announced a new year 1-8 primary school for Lincoln, to be provisionally known as Lincoln South Primary School. Lincoln South Primary School will be a full primary school (year 1-8) and not a satellite of an existing school.

Double drama for Lincoln High School productions „„ By Tom Doudney LIFE IN Nazi Germany and child poverty in late 19th century Dunedin are the subjects of Lincoln High School’s two major senior drama productions this year. Year 12 and 13 drama students are busy rehearsing for the plays, which will be staged in the school hall next month. The year 12 students will be performing Fear and Misery of the Third Reich by Bertold Brecht. Brecht’s series of interconnected playlets describe events which took place in German households in the 1930s. They dramatise the suspicion and anxiety experienced by ordinary people, particularly Jewish citizens, as the power of Hitler grew. Two performances with different casts will take place on April 6, at 6pm and 8pm. The year 13 students will be performing Children of the Poor by Mervyn Thompson. Thompson’s adaptation of John A Lee’s 1934 novel follows the formative years of the autobiographical Albany Porcello, a disillusioned adolescent who comes face-to-face with desperate poverty, misery, crime and the contempt of Presbyterian

Dunedin. Children of the Poor is an ensemble play with musical elements. The script uses theatrical devices, including direct narration, chorus and physical theatre, to confront the audience with Porcello’s tale of poverty and hardship. Again, there will be two performances with different casts. These will be on April 11, at 6pm and 8pm. Tickets to any of these performances are $5 and can be purchased from the school office. Door sales will also be available.

LINKED UP: Some genuine police handcuffs made playing cops and robbers more realistic on Thursday for West Rolleston Primary School pupils, Jasmine (above left), India, Israel, Quinn, Xavier and Athena. The new entrant pupils recently had a visit from Constable Blair Croucher. They learnt about how police officers help people and the importance of being safe in the car and walking to school. As well as trying out the handcuffs, they also got to sit in the police car and hear the sirens, and Constable Croucher recorded how fast the children could run using his laser.

DRESS UP: Xavier and India got to try on some of Constable Croucher’s uniform. Meanwhile, Maddison and Sophia found out what it’s like to sit in a police car.

Sick bed to City2Surf „„ By Gabrielle Stuart JUST A year ago, Leanne Crawford could barely walk, had lost 30kg, was constantly sick, and had to put both her work and her wedding on hold – and she had no idea what was going wrong. This month, she will take on the 14km The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate event, which she will walk, and she won’t be doing it alone. Her partner, friends and many of the nurses who helped her get on her feet again plan to do the walk beside her – 41 people in total – raising money to help others with the same condition get treatment. The 30-year-old began feeling sick in 2014, but initially doctors did not know what was wrong. It took almost two years for her to be diagnosed and find a treatment, because she was facing a complex mix of parasites in her intestines, crohn’s disease and endometriosis. For much of that time she couldn’t work, and she had to postpone her wedding three times. “It was like my life was turned upside down. It was really, really frightening just not knowing what was going on,” she said. After a Christchurch gastroenterolTURNAROUND: Leanne Crawford has put poor ogy specialist, Steven Ding, diaghealth behind her and is looking forward to the nosed her problems, she has made a City2Surf.

But she said it was only possible because of the help she received, and the diagnosis tools provided by the Canterbury Bowel and Liver Trust. “The things that finally got me well cost a lot of money, so I wanted to give something back,” she said. She has already raised almost $1500 through people sponsoring her run. She said she had never done anything like the City2Surf before, and after being sick for so long being able to cross the finish line would feel like a giant victory. “I’m sure there will be tears,” she said. “I finally feel like I’ve got my life back. I can’t go for drinks or dinner like normal, but I am still able to work, which is amazing.” She works for Bupa as an activity organiser, and said they held her job for her, in spite of the fact she was off work for three months. She has also rescheduled her wedding, and plans to marry her partner of eight years, Craig Corboy, this December. “I’m determined I’m going to get down the aisle this time,” she said. •The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate, Sunday, March 19, 14km or 6km option walk, jog or run, $25 Entries available at Pak’NSave, New World, The Athletes Foot, YMCA and online at www.city2surf.co.nz

Mingha Bluff realignment delayed until next year THE NEW Zealand Transport Agency says a wet alpine summer means the Mingha Bluff realignment project will now be completed by the end of next summer. The $22 million project on State Highway 73, between Greyneys Shelter and Rough Creek near Arthur’s Pass Village, was initially expected to be finished by the end of this month. NZTA highways manager Colin Knaggs said the project was about 80 per cent complete. “While we’re disappointed with the delay, contractors have worked hard to get to this point and we can’t control the weather,” Mr Knaggs said. “As people on the West Coast know, it has been a very wet summer and this has created delays in the final surfacing of the road. “With winter approaching, the plan is to lay a temporary seal over the unfinished sections. This will protect the project over the winter months. We will lay the final seal and put the finishing touches on the project when the weather allows in summer 2017/18.”

Range of events thrill children MORE THAN 2000 people turned out for the Selwyn Parenting Network’s annual children’s day event, held recently at the Rolleston Community Centre and reserve. The purpose of the event is for families and communities to come together and celebrate the children in their lives with a range of free activities. Families were treated to a free sausage sizzle, courtesy of Ray White, and fresh fruit supplied by Healthy Harvest, and the ice blocks sponsored by Rolleston New World were in hot demand. The Cancer Society was on site to hand out plenty of sunblock. Many of the children that tested their speed against the police laser were then able to cool down under the spray of the fire hose, and plenty of adults were tempted to join in the fun under the hot sun. DJ Chris Martin was the MC, entertaining the crowd with humour and music. The event’s opening act was the Burnham School kapa haka group. Josh Grimaldi had plenty of young volunteers to chose from to assist him with his magic show, and Lolytwist worked tirelessly to keep up with demand for her balloon creations.

HOT DEMAND: Children cool down under the fire hose.

HANDS UP: Josh Grimaldi had plenty of young volunteers to chose from to assist him with his magic show.

ROLLING THE DICE: Rolleston’s Elme Pieterse, 9, and Cydney van der Merwe, 6, try out giant snakes and ladders.

There were also pony rides and farm animals to cuddle, including a rat, and craft and play activities. Have-a-go activities included House of Bricks Lego, the Fun on Wheels trailer, giant games, a tumbling and flips clinics and a golf driving range. Selwyn Parenting Network

funding and marketing co-ordinator Kimberlee Woods said the group wanted families to focus on the core values of children’s day and regularly practice giving time, praise and encouragement, listening and talking, love and affection, and new experiences to children.

Scholarship boost for student LINCOLN University student Sarah Lockhart is this year’s recipient of the Ravensdown Hugh Williams Scholarship. Lockhart, 19, is currently in her second year of study towards a Bachelor of Agricultural Commerce. She said the $5000 scholarship money would go a long way in helping her complete her degree. “Everyone knows the expenses at university can add up, especially when you’re living away from home, so it was pretty awesome to receive the phone call telling me that most of my fees would be paid by the scholarship,” she said. The scholarship was established to commemorate the service and dedication of the late Hugh Williams, who was a Ravensdown director from 1987-2000. One scholarship is awarded each year and the successful applicant receives $5000 for each year of study remaining. In addition, the recipient is offered the opportunity of paid holiday work at Ravensdown. Lockhart was encour-

aged to apply for the scholarship by a friend who was a former recipient and said it was attractive because of the opportunities it provided.

cially because my dad is a senior lecturer there. But I wanted to experience new things, so I’m really glad I made the decision to come down to Lincoln.” Ravensdown director Bruce Wills said awarding these scholarships was about developing future leaders in the agricultural sector. “We want to ensure there is plenty of support available to budding agricultural professionals,” he said.

Selwyn Auto

Celebrates their first year

Selwyn Auto has been open a year and what a year it’s been. Lisa and Nigel Fleck have been blown away with the support of the local community since opening the business a year ago. “We’d really like to thank the residents of the Selwyn area who are now regular customers. We have been thrilled with the response and support shown to us in the first year and are excited now to offer customers even more than before.” Since opening, the Flecks have employed another full time mechanic and have installed new equipment to be able to broaden the services they can offer. The garage offers a comprehensive range of services including WOFs, all repairs and servicing, tyres, wheel alignment, batteries, parts and accessories as well as auto electrical repairs. They also have auto diagnostic code readers for those times when your car is alerting you to a problem you may not be aware of. They love to fix motorbikes as well, so if your two or four-wheeler needs a service or repair or even new tyres – the staff at Selwyn Auto can help.

Flecks’ other business Jones Rd Auto in Rolleston. He brings more than 20 years experience as well as a keen attention to detail and a friendly and personable manner to all customers.

News Swapped chickens a head scratcher „„ By Tom Doudney A BIZARRE case of swapped chickens has a lifestyle block owner scratching his head. Chris Lange says about a dozen of his 32 young chickens have been stolen and replaced with older birds. “I’m 110 per cent sure they are definitely not ours,” he said. “I could not believe that someone had gone and done that.” Mr Lange said he realised what had happened early last week when he went out one evening to feed the pigs at his Weedons property and noticed some of the chickens had their wings clipped, unlike his birds. “They are locked up in an enclosed area, so someone has come in here at night time with a couple of sacks of chooks and has dumped the old ones and taken the young ones,” Mr Lange said. “Someone has obviously decided ‘we want some new chooks, young ones’ because they obviously see that we sell eggs free range at the gate. You can see [the chickens] from the road so someone has come over

the fence and they haven’t had the balls to kill their old ones.” Mr Lange said he thought the swap had been carried out some time within the two weeks prior to the evening he noticed it. He and wife Sharon had noticed the quantity and quality of eggs being laid was much lower than it had been. The older chickens would be killed to make way for some new young birds. “There is no point feeding old chooks that don’t perform,” he said. He hadn’t gone to the police because he didn’t think there was much they could do. They had lived on the property for two years, since moving from Rolleston and hadn’t had any problems with crime apart from the occasional theft from their honesty box. NOT MY BIRD: Weedons resident Chris Lange inspects a chicken with clipped wings. Mr Lange says 12 of his own young chickens were stolen and replaced by older birds with clipped wings.

Union meetings for teacher aides and support staff SELWYN TEACHER aides and other school support staff will hold paid union meetings in Rolleston, Prebbleton and Darfield on Thursday as part of nationwide action over pay. The New Zealand Educational Institute has said the Government’s refusal to increase school operations funding has complicated its negotiations with the Ministry of Education. NZEI considered an increase in school operations grants to be non-negotiable in order to cover a pay rise for 9000 support staff in primary and secondary schools. Otherwise, the union has said, many principals would be forced to reduce staff hours or cut jobs to compensate for the cost of any pay rise. NZEI support staff representative Sue Poole said children could lose a few hours of learning support during the meetings, but the goal was to plan a nationwide campaign to ensure children would not lose that support permanently. “We need better funding for better learning for our kids,” she said. NZEI members are requesting a two per cent pay increase, in line with teachers.

Plans to develop a new skate facility for Lincoln have moved forward, with a location for the site being confirmed and a concept plan now available to view.

ALCOHOL LICENSE APPLICATION

RESTRICTED FIRE SEASON

The skate facility is planned outside Lincoln Event Centre at the front of the facility near the existing play area. This location provides good visibility of the skate area, helping to improve safety. The design includes a shallow bowl, a deeper big bowl, flat skating areas and ramp. The design is aimed at providing spaces for both advanced, intermediate and beginner skateboarders as well as children on scooters.

Coalgate Bowling Club Incorporated has lodged an application for a club licence renewal. Objections can be made on this application until 24 March. For details see www.selwyn.govt.nz/ alcoholnotices

The newly developed Glentunnel to Coalgate walkway/cycleway connects these two small, rural townships which lie near the Malvern Hills. The path between the townships is two kilometres long and is flat. It’s an easy bike ride or walk for the whole family which is suitable for buggies, young cyclists or wheelchairs. The walkway passes over a new bridge over a large drain near Coaltrack Road underneath which lies historic brick arch and cobble culvert. At Glentunnel you can grab an ice cream at the local dairy or take a tour of the historic buildings dotted through the township, such as the library or the chapel. Glentunnel has a historical association with local coalmines, potteries and brickworks of the Glentunnel/South Malvern area. Many of the miners’ cottages are still lived in today.

To view the concept plan for the skate area please visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay. You can submit your comments on the draft by emailing reserves@selwyn.govt.nz by 7 April. Local schools will also be part of the consultation process. The Council has budgeted for construction to occur this autumn and winter.

Busy year ahead for Motorway project The Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2 (CSM2) team are geared up for a busy year, as work ramps up across this NZ Transport Agency project.

The lizard capture programme along with the salvage and relocation of aquatic wildlife living within water races continues across the project. Over the next eight months, you will notice: · the closure of a section of Trents Road for one year with a detour in place via nearby roads · construction starting on temporary roads at Halswell Junction Road, Shands Road, Springs Road and at the intersection of Waterholes/Hamptons Road. · bridge construction commencing on Main South Road, Waterholes Road, Trents Road and at the Weedons Road interchange. The four laning of Main South Road sees work zones currently active from Rolleston to Weedons Ross Road. From mid-2017 the crews will continue work from Weedons Ross Road heading towards Curraghs Road. The site information room, located at 997 Robinsons Road, is open every Thursday from midday to 4pm. You are welcome to come meet the team and ask questions. The latest project newsletter can be viewed at www.nzta.govt.nz/CSM2.

The new bridge constructed for the walkway/cycleway

On the roads this week Preseal road repairs are planned on Leaches Road, with road repairs also planned at Dalethorpe and Minchins Roads, with stop/ go traffic controls operating at all sites. Road resurfacing is planned on Coaltrack, Telegraph and Hororata Roads, with stop/go controls operating. Footpath construction continues on Brookside Road and Overbury Crescent in Rolleston, with footpath repairs planned on Douglas Street in Lincoln. Work is continuing on the Masefield Drive upgrade and footpath construction. Manse Road roading and stormwater improvement work continues. Road reconstruction continues on Gerald Street. Temporary traffic management is in place at these sites.

Rail/road closures From Saturday 18 March until Wednesday 22 March, the Weedons Ross Road level crossing will be closed to allow KiwiRail to complete a crossing upgrade, with detours sign posted. Dynes Road is currently closed to traffic from the intersection with Springston Rolleston Road to about 150 metres from this intersection. The closure is to extend a sewer main along the road and will be in place until around 20 March. Stoneleigh Drive will be closed until mid-April. A new roundabout is being installed at the intersection of Hoskyns Road and Stoneleigh Drive. The closure is a safety measure to reduce traffic build up on Hoskyns Road. Hoskyns Road will remain open with traffic controls operating.

A new skate park is also planned for West Melton next year.

Work has started on sealing a new local road (‘Manion Road’ – built between Weedons Ross Road and Curraghs Road), drainage and temporary road construction next to Waterholes Road and piping the new stockwater race along Weedons Road in preparation for the new Weedons Road Interchange to be constructed. Construction of various new internal driveways are coming along well as the team works towards the opening of Manion Road in April 2017 which will allow the closure of accesses onto Main South Road. Power and telecommunications cable trenching is also occurring along the project together with vegetation clearance. There will be changes to traffic management arrangements across the project to allow the construction team to safely carry out its work. Please remember that traffic management controls (signs, cones, barriers and fences) are in place to keep you safe.

In a restricted fire season, only gas barbeques, crop residue and rubbish fires inside contained drums, and fires which have received a written permit from Selwyn District Council are allowed in rural areas of Selwyn. Vegetation fires to burn trees or other items are not allowed unless permitted. There are a number of conditions which must be met before fires can be lit – these are available online at www.selwyn. govt.nz/fire. In residential areas the only type of fire permitted throughout the year are barbeques or cooking fires. Other fires need a resource consent from Environment Canterbury. Fires also cannot be lit on Council reserves - including Coes and Chamberlains Fords and Whitecliffs Reserve. Douglas Marshall Principal Rural Fire Officer Monday 13 March 2017

Plans to develop a new skate facility for Lincoln have moved forward, with a location for the site being confirmed and a concept plan now available to view.

ALCOHOL LICENSE APPLICATION

RESTRICTED FIRE SEASON

The skate facility is planned outside Lincoln Event Centre at the front of the facility near the existing play area. This location provides good visibility of the skate area, helping to improve safety. The design includes a shallow bowl, a deeper big bowl, flat skating areas and ramp. The design is aimed at providing spaces for both advanced, intermediate and beginner skateboarders as well as children on scooters.

Coalgate Bowling Club Incorporated has lodged an application for a club licence renewal. Objections can be made on this application until 24 March. For details see www.selwyn.govt.nz/ alcoholnotices

The newly developed Glentunnel to Coalgate walkway/cycleway connects these two small, rural townships which lie near the Malvern Hills. The path between the townships is two kilometres long and is flat. It’s an easy bike ride or walk for the whole family which is suitable for buggies, young cyclists or wheelchairs. The walkway passes over a new bridge over a large drain near Coaltrack Road underneath which lies historic brick arch and cobble culvert. At Glentunnel you can grab an ice cream at the local dairy or take a tour of the historic buildings dotted through the township, such as the library or the chapel. Glentunnel has a historical association with local coalmines, potteries and brickworks of the Glentunnel/South Malvern area. Many of the miners’ cottages are still lived in today.

To view the concept plan for the skate area please visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay. You can submit your comments on the draft by emailing reserves@selwyn.govt.nz by 7 April. Local schools will also be part of the consultation process. The Council has budgeted for construction to occur this autumn and winter.

Busy year ahead for Motorway project The Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2 (CSM2) team are geared up for a busy year, as work ramps up across this NZ Transport Agency project.

The lizard capture programme along with the salvage and relocation of aquatic wildlife living within water races continues across the project. Over the next eight months, you will notice: · the closure of a section of Trents Road for one year with a detour in place via nearby roads · construction starting on temporary roads at Halswell Junction Road, Shands Road, Springs Road and at the intersection of Waterholes/Hamptons Road. · bridge construction commencing on Main South Road, Waterholes Road, Trents Road and at the Weedons Road interchange. The four laning of Main South Road sees work zones currently active from Rolleston to Weedons Ross Road. From mid-2017 the crews will continue work from Weedons Ross Road heading towards Curraghs Road. The site information room, located at 997 Robinsons Road, is open every Thursday from midday to 4pm. You are welcome to come meet the team and ask questions. The latest project newsletter can be viewed at www.nzta.govt.nz/CSM2.

The new bridge constructed for the walkway/cycleway

On the roads this week Preseal road repairs are planned on Leaches Road, with road repairs also planned at Dalethorpe and Minchins Roads, with stop/ go traffic controls operating at all sites. Road resurfacing is planned on Coaltrack, Telegraph and Hororata Roads, with stop/go controls operating. Footpath construction continues on Brookside Road and Overbury Crescent in Rolleston, with footpath repairs planned on Douglas Street in Lincoln. Work is continuing on the Masefield Drive upgrade and footpath construction. Manse Road roading and stormwater improvement work continues. Road reconstruction continues on Gerald Street. Temporary traffic management is in place at these sites.

Rail/road closures From Saturday 18 March until Wednesday 22 March, the Weedons Ross Road level crossing will be closed to allow KiwiRail to complete a crossing upgrade, with detours sign posted. Dynes Road is currently closed to traffic from the intersection with Springston Rolleston Road to about 150 metres from this intersection. The closure is to extend a sewer main along the road and will be in place until around 20 March. Stoneleigh Drive will be closed until mid-April. A new roundabout is being installed at the intersection of Hoskyns Road and Stoneleigh Drive. The closure is a safety measure to reduce traffic build up on Hoskyns Road. Hoskyns Road will remain open with traffic controls operating.

A new skate park is also planned for West Melton next year.

Work has started on sealing a new local road (‘Manion Road’ – built between Weedons Ross Road and Curraghs Road), drainage and temporary road construction next to Waterholes Road and piping the new stockwater race along Weedons Road in preparation for the new Weedons Road Interchange to be constructed. Construction of various new internal driveways are coming along well as the team works towards the opening of Manion Road in April 2017 which will allow the closure of accesses onto Main South Road. Power and telecommunications cable trenching is also occurring along the project together with vegetation clearance. There will be changes to traffic management arrangements across the project to allow the construction team to safely carry out its work. Please remember that traffic management controls (signs, cones, barriers and fences) are in place to keep you safe.

In a restricted fire season, only gas barbeques, crop residue and rubbish fires inside contained drums, and fires which have received a written permit from Selwyn District Council are allowed in rural areas of Selwyn. Vegetation fires to burn trees or other items are not allowed unless permitted. There are a number of conditions which must be met before fires can be lit – these are available online at www.selwyn. govt.nz/fire. In residential areas the only type of fire permitted throughout the year are barbeques or cooking fires. Other fires need a resource consent from Environment Canterbury. Fires also cannot be lit on Council reserves - including Coes and Chamberlains Fords and Whitecliffs Reserve. Douglas Marshall Principal Rural Fire Officer Monday 13 March 2017

Backyard critters

Mosquitos want to suck your blood Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us

FLooring

The striped mosquito (aedes notoscriptus) is an unwelcome visitor to the backyard and is one of more than 20 species in New Zealand, several of which are native. It was first described in Sydney in 1889 and first collected in Auckland in 1916 and later in Nelson in 1930. The striped mosquito has a South Pacific distribution, including Australia, New Caledonia, New Guinea and Indonesia. It is likely that the ‘wrigglers’ or mosquito larvae arrived in New Zealand in open containers of water on boats, given they are

known to breed in rock pools, ponds, discarded tyres or containers, gutters and even in water collected by plant leaves. This adult mozzie is easily identified by its striped thorax and legs. The mosquito lays its eggs at the waterline where it can tolerate desiccation for several months, but in ideal conditions, egg to adult takes about two weeks, depending on temperature. The adults are silent fliers, biting humans or animals from dawn to dusk. The females need a blood meal for the production of eggs, which can number up to 200 for some species. The striped mosquito’s bite often causes localised swelling and itchiness. In Australia, it can carry serious diseases, such as dog heartworm or Ross River virus. Fortunately, New Zealand remains free of mosquito-borne animal diseases, but a warmer climate in future will increase the chances of this occurring. Finally, there are 24 days until Lincoln’s free Bioblitz event.

BLOOD SUCKER: As well as New Zealand, the striped mosquito is also found in Australia, New Caledonia, New Guinea and Indonesia. It is likely that ‘wrigglers’ or striped mosquito larvae (inset) arrived in New Zealand in open containers of water on boats.​ •For details, checkout https://lincolnbioblitz. eventbrite.co.nz •Specimens collected by Mike Bowie will be logged

News Field days for whole family MORE THAN 600 exhibitors will be at the South Island Agricultural Field Days when it is held for the second time at Kirwee, this month. The annual event, which switches between Canterbury and Southland each year, will take place March 29 - 31. It was held at the Courtenay Rd site for the first time in 2015, after outgrowing its previous site at Lincoln, where it had been based for 32 years. More than 27,500 people attended that event and organisers anticipate the same number or more this year. Field days media spokesman Daniel Schat said a lifestyle section with exhibits for the whole family would add something new to the event. “We have 50 exhibitors lined up to display products ranging from model trains and spa pools to dog control systems and solar water and power units.” Other attractions would include Farm Trader magazine’s top tractor shootout. It will compare variable transmission tractors made by the world’s leading brands. Judges will test the tractors on a range of criteria including performance and affordability.

PULLING A CROWD: The 2015 South Island Agricultural Field Days attracted 27,500 people and organisers are hoping for a similar turnout this year. Inset: Rodney Hadfield ​

Two fencing competitions will also be held, and another event which has been popular in the past is the Agri-Innovation awards which recognise New Zealand-made innovations or inventions. Entrants are given a chance to demonstrate their inventions. Mr Schat said the site had a good crops of maize, fodder

beet, pasture and oats ready for harvest machinery demonstrations. “Cultivation and seeding machinery will also be in action,” he said. Field days is a non-profit organisation made up of farmers and others in the agricultural industry. Organising committee chairman Rodney Hadfield said

it would not be possible without the work of volunteers and community groups and Friends of the Field Days who donated equipment and services. He said it was a good community fundraising opportunity for local schools and young farmers who helped with parking, running the tills and the entrance, and clean up.

Danish settler history celebrated ABOUT 70 descendants of 19th century Danish settler Peter Sorensen gathered in Greenpark and Akaroa recently for a family reunion. A gathering and exhibition of work by Danish born woodworker Philip van Deurs was held at Greenpark Memorial Community Centre, and there were visits to various Banks Peninsula sites associated with the family history. The reunion culminated with a get-together at the Akaroa Recreation Ground. Many of the descendants came from Selwyn, as well as other parts of Canterbury, Otago and Southland. Some also came from the North Island and Australia, as well as as far afield as Wisconsin and Vietnam. Descendant and Lincoln resident Adriana de Groot s aid the reunion had gone well. Mr Sorensen, a carpenter, and his wife Rasmine made the journey from Yding, Denmark, to Lyttelton onboard the Cardigan Castle in 1873.

SPORTS In Brief CRICKET CHANGES The Canterbury Country premier two-day cricket final between Weedons and Sefton will be squeezed into one day after rain meant no play was possible on Saturday. The match had been scheduled to be played over two weekends with the conclusion this coming Saturday. No extra days will be scheduled to make up for the washout but Canterbury Country Cricket have extended the length of play this weekend. Play at Rangiora’s Mainpower Oval will now start at 10.30am, instead of 12.30pm, with a maximum of 110 overs in the day instead of the normal 90. Usually, over two days, 180 overs would be possible. MIDGET CARS POSTPONED The South Island Midget Car Championship, which had been due to be staged on Saturday, was rained off and will be rescheduled. ARKING UP WINS The Arking Up team consisting of Sam Henderson, Greg Salter, James Mounce and Lance Warren were the overall winners of the Lincoln Bowling Club’s community competition, which finished this month. The last night of competition saw 30 teams of four bowlers compete for the prize for the round as well as the overall win.

Weedons rower wins sculls title „„ By Gordon Findlater LOGAN ANDERSON from Weedons won the under-17 single sculls title at the South Island secondary school championships on Twizel’s Lake Ruataniwha by the slimmest of margins. Anderson, 16, won gold on Sunday for St Thomas of Canterbury College in a time of 7min 37.70sec, just sevenhundredths of a second ahead of Roncalli Logan Anderson College’s Jack Gibbs. He then went on to complete a medal trifecta in Twizel. Anderson and Lachlan Sydney won silver in the under-17 double sculls. They ended up in another tight tussle with Roncalli. However, it was the South Canterbury pairing of Gibbs and Sam Anderson which took the spoils on this occasion, winning by a little more than a second. Logan Anderson was also part of the quad with Jack Hurley, Ben Scarlett, Ethan Bargh and Ben Wright (cox), who won the under-17 coxed quad sculls.

If the boys’ race was clear cut, the girls’ under-18 coxed eight was the opposite. Just over one second was all that separated gold from bronze. Gold went to Rangi Ruru Girls’ School with a time of 6min 51.08sec, with Christchurch Girls’ High School

just a bow ball behind in 6min 51.52sec, and St Margaret’s College taking bronze with 7min 0.93sec. Schools will now turn their attention to the Maadi Cup, which takes place from March 27 to April 2.

swimming lessons since she was six-months-old and had never looked back. Her mother, Susan Bates, said because Christchurch has not had a suitable indoor long course (50m) pool since QE II was wrecked by the earthquakes, Hannah has had to travel to events further afield to record international qualifying times. The only

other suitable pools were in Dunedin, Invercargill and the North Island and getting to events at these venues came at a higher financial cost. •Hannah has a web page set up to help raise funds for her to compete at swimming events.

TWO SELWYN youngsters have just earned places in a coveted national junior swim squad. Darfield’s Chloe Newbigging, 12, and Hororata’s Poppy Freeman, 8, won their age groups at the Christchurch Crown swim held recently at Corsair Bay. It was the fifth event in the seven-swim, New Zealand Ocean Swim Series. Their wins in the 200m OceanKids event secured them both places in the Jetstar Super Swim Squad. This means they will travel to Auckland with a caregiver for a weekend camp with some top name elite swimmers and coaches in May. Throughout the season, each qualifying event allows children the opportunity to earn a place in the 36-member squad.

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

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

Gardening

An apple a day Rachel Vogan says apples are easy to grow and wonderful to eat – so why not grow your own? REFERRED TO as the world’s most popular fruit, apples are one of the easiest crops to grow. They are often classified as eating or dessert/cooking apples. If room isn’t an issue try to plant a range of apples that mature at different times, so you can have a long harvest period.

spring with a general-purpose fruit fertiliser; avoid anything that is exceptionally high in nitrogen.

POLLINATION Apples are pollinated by bees, which move around apple and crab apple trees (which are useful pollinators for apple trees due to their abundance of pollen and long flowering period). If you only have room for one, make sure it’s self-fertile, or if your neighbour has a tree or two, the bees will move from garden to garden to aid in fertilisation. MAINTENANCE Young apple trees need little pruning other than to train to shape until the plants have multiple branches or when they are starting to take up too much space. Prune to aid air and light movement once established after harvesting in winter. Fertilise in

MULTI-GRAFTED VARIETIES The expert horticulturalists, who grow the trees, graft the apple variety onto a vigorous rootstock. These rootstocks cope with a variety of soil types and govern the eventual height of the tree. Grafting is nothing new, it has been done for centuries, and it allows for more than one variety to be grafted onto each rootstock. Multi-grafted apple trees are popular and readily available; some even come in triple grafts, ie three varieties of apple on one tree. ONES TO TRY The list of apple trees available is fairly long, with well over 100 different varieties from new hybrids through to those which came out with the first settlers. Here are a few favourites: •  ‘Golden Delicious’, ‘Red Delicious’ both produce large, smooth-skinned fruit. •  ‘Braeburn’, ‘Gala’, ‘Monty’s

Surprise’ and ‘Fuji’ are all reliable, tasty, flavoursome, crunchy fruit with good red colours and tones. •  ‘Granny Smith’, ‘Bramley’s Seedling’ and ‘Baujade’ are all green cooking-apple types. •  Big is better? ‘Peasgood Nonsuch’ offers monster-sized fruit. •  Low-maintenance and tasty varieties include ‘Initial’, ‘Adore’, ‘Ariane’ and ‘Divine’, which all produce wonderful apples, and what is even better is that they are disease resistant and do not need spraying. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW •  Full sun is mandatory. •  For clay-based and heavy soils, work in grit and gypsum before planting to help drain the soil, or build the site up so water will not pool around the base of the trees. •  In light, loose, even sandy soils, be generous and load up with compost and well-rotted manure. This must be worked through the soil to ensure the roots have something solid to latch on to.

SWEET: Divine tastes as good as it looks, is very low maintenance and disease-resistant.

Pretty nemophila for pots or planting „„ By Henri Ham

STRONG: Water black penny regularly for a good show.

For more gardening inspiration, pick up the latest issue of kiwigardener

NEMOPHILA IS a lovely annual that produces masses of tiny, pretty flowers. The individual flowers are small and delightful, but planted on mass, nemophila looks stunning and striking. Google nemophila at Hitachi Seaside Park in Japan for a glimpse of how spectacular nemophila can look. Some of my favourites are snow storm which has white flowers with fine pencil markings, black penny flowers are dark purple with white edges and blue chip flowers are blue with white centres. Blue chip grows to a height of 20cm and the other two to a height of 10cm. Try growing a mix of all three or just one variety to create a strong statement. In addition to mass planting, they look lovely in pots, containers, borders, baskets and rock gardens. Once you’ve got your seedlings simply plant each one around 25cm from the next in a spot that has full sun or part shade and moist soil. In around four weeks you can expect to see your nemophila put on their show. Water them regularly and you’ll help keep the flower show going longer. NOTICE OF LOCALSnow TRANSITION PLENTIFUL: storm in PERIOD a pot produces masses of individual flowers.

Busy Bumbles believes in investing in people and recognising its staff as its leading resource.

They need to work well in a team, be able to put plans in place for the school’s future, have good communication skills and represent the diversity of the school’s students.

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

Double Glazing makes a home warmer Heat is retained in winter and kept out in summer while condensation and noise from outside are reduced. Double glazing retains heat.

Modern double glazed windows and doors are more effective than their earlier counterparts and far superior to single glazing which allows heat to escape through the glass even when there are thermal curtains. Double glazing works in much the same way as a thermos flask where the silver surface on the inner glass lining reflects back the temperature of its contents. Heat is retained in winter and kept out in summer while condensation and noise from outside are reduced. Overseas, triple glazing is very popular while double glazing is more common in New Zealand. Both have a gap between the layers of glass resulting in less heat transference. The wider the gap, the more warmth is retained in the home with less chance of condensation. The technology around double and triple glazing has advanced significantly over the years leading to greater efficiency though not all products are equal with the insulation ratings varying between the various market options. Ratings depend on the components used and how the windows and doors are constructed. Factors are the type and emissivity of the glass and width between the panes. Products with an Energy Star have better thermal performance. Low-emissivity (low-e) glass, limits the amount of ultra violet and infrared light transmitted through the glass; the lower the level, the more reflective the glass reducing heat loss by twenty to thirty percent. The result is a warmer

home in winter while the sun is reflected back keeping the heat out and the home cooler in summer. The minimum air space between each pane of glass in a double glazed window is usually ten to sixteen millimetres. Twelve millimetres is recommended for warmer parts of New Zealand while the optimum for Canterbury is from fifteen to seventeen millimetres. A step up is argon gas filled windows; an economic and natural gas. Argon gas is heavier than air so affords three to nine percent greater insulation than air filled double glazing and improved sound proofing. The window or door unit is completely sealed so perfectly safe and the gas used for residential windows is non-toxic. It is also used in retrofitted windows to increase energy efficiency especially where the gap between the glass panes needs to be less than usual to fit into an existing timber window frame. Double glazing is now standard in new homes with additional options like argon gas and low-e glass filled windows becoming increasingly popular due to the increased benefits they offer, especially as the additional funds invested are said to be quickly recouped by the energy savings made. If building or renovating, it is worth investigating the options on the market and budget permitting, choosing windows and doors that not only look good but also offer high performance in terms of heat retention, noise reduction, deflection of the effects of the sun and reduced condensation.
