Relay to highlight young Harry’s cancer battle „„ By Tom Doudney A LITTLE boy who won his battle with cancer and his mother, who lost hers, will be celebrated when the Rolleston Relay for Life is held next month. Although he is only four, cancer has had a massive impact on Harry Boaz’s life. Just 24 hours after his birth, Harry underwent surgery to remove a tumour the size of his head. At 22-months-old his mother Heather Boaz died of breast cancer. She had neglected her own health to focus on her unborn baby, Harry, after a scan revealed the tumour at the base of his spine. Harry’s own cancer returned and after Mrs Boaz’s death he spent almost a year fighting the disease, including going through chemotherapy. A team called Harry’s Heroes will take part in the Relay for Life event at Brookside Park, April 1 and 2. The event is a Cancer Society fundraiser which raises awareness, celebrates people who have fought cancer and remembers those who have lost their lives to the disease. It is held at multiple locations around the country and involves

team members walking, jogging or running a relay, family friendly activities and entertainment

for those not on the track, and a candlelit closing ceremony. This will be the third Relay

for Life for the Harry’s Heroes team, with the first having taken part when Harry was still

fighting the disease. The team began when Harry’s father Andrew Boaz, a teacher at Rolleston School, was approached by a parent about the idea and staff and pupils at the school also joined. Mr Boaz said the support had meant a lot, particularly when he had to rush Harry, who was struggling to cope with the disease and chemotherapy, to hospital during the first year that the team took part. “I remember driving past the reserve and seeing it all lit up. Just knowing that people were there showing support meant a lot on one of the worst nights,” Mr Boaz said. “It was raining but there were still people at the park.” Harry’s Heroes will wear rainbow uniforms this year, as that is Harry’s favourite ‘colour’, and will use his treasured Buzz Lightyear toy, from the movie Toy Story, as a baton. There are about 40 people in the team. Mr Boaz, Harry and his other son Flynn, 7, will take part. •To register a Relay for Life team go to www.relayforlife. org.nz. •Lincoln High School team, p7

FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK Good on the Boaz family, who will be among many taking part in this year’s Relay for Life in Rolleston on April 1 and 2. This might be a relay but in one sense this is a family which has already run a marathon. Not long after losing his mother to breast cancer, Harry Boaz fought and won his own year-long battle with cancer at the age of two. It must have been hard on his father Andrew and brother Flynn who also lost a wife and mother and had to support Harry. The family had plenty of support from a well-wishing community and it’s clear this has meant a lot to them. So good on the Boaz family, good on everyone else who will take part in the Relay for Life and good on everyone who helps support the Cancer Society with a donation this year. –Tom Doudney

Burglars steal remotes from unlocked vehicles Fashion „„ By Tom Doudney POLICE ARE frustrated that people are making life easy for thieves and burglars by leaving cars unlocked and garage door openers inside. There has been a spate of at least six incidents in the Lincoln area over recent weekends, with several on Caulfield Cres, with dirt bikes, diving gear, tools, cash and cards among the items taken. The burglars had entered people’s garages using garage remotes stolen from unlocked vehicles. Alex Pickover These followed a spate of at least 15 thefts from cars in Rolleston over the weekend of March 4-5.

In Brief MONEY RAISED A Givealittle page has raised more than $4000 for Early Valley Rd residents Ken and Denise McKenzie who lost 20km of fencing in the Port Hills fire. While their house sustained only minimal damage, the fire destroyed the fencing as well as a 100-tree feijoa orchard, native trees established over 25 years and all the grass on their 100 acre farm. Only the house was insured. The page, http://givealittle.co.nz/ cause/help4ken, was created by the McKenzies’ friend Vaughan Johnson with the aim of covering the cost of new fencing, expected to cost about $9000. LIBRARIES CLOSED Libraries and district council service centres will be closed on March 29 while staff attend professional development training. Sessions planned for the day will cover library spaces, increasing customer access to collections and the delivery of outreach programme. Two staff training and meeting days are held a year. The district council’s Rolleston Headquarters will remain open. The mobile library service visits which would normally run on March 29 will now occur on March

31 with stops at Arthur’s Pass, Springfield and Castle Hill. See www.selwynlibraries.co.nz for more details. RESTRICTIONS LIFTED Fire restrictions have been lifted in the rural plains of Selwyn following recent rainfall. Principal rural fire officer Douglas Marshall said that while the fire risk had been reduced, people should continue to be cautious about lighting a fire in the open. PM AT SCHOOL Prime Minister Bill English was at Lemonwood Grove School for its opening ceremony on Friday. The school opened in January but decided to hold its opening ceremony later.

Teacher aides want pay rise Teacher aides and school support staff held paid union meetings in Prebbleton, Rolleston and Darfield on Thursday as part of nationwide action. Leeston teacher aide Ali Coomer argues that the Government should increase school budgets so staff like her can her can get a much-needed pay rise

News

Fashion A little while ago, a young man tapped me on the shoulder and said “gidday Miss G.” After a moment, I realised that this man was the little boy for whom I had been a teacher aide all through primary school. The boy who could barely recognise the first letter of his name when I met him was now a builder and thriving. This is why I love my job. Teacher aides and other school support staff are an essential and valuable part of our education system. We work behind the scenes or with children who have varying learning needs and disabilities. Our efforts allow children to experience success.

We are highly-valued by our school colleagues and the children and their parents. But not, it seems, by the Government. Most people would be shocked to realise that many support staff earn hardly more than the minimum wage, even after years of experience, and we have little job security from year to year – sometimes even from term to term. Sometimes the child with Government funding we’ve been teaching moves on and we lose hours of work. Other times, the school budget is tightened and those who have been paid out of the school operations grant lose

Holly Traxler-Puddle, of Avonhead, reacts to an article in the Selwyn Times (March 14) about ECan investigating measures to protect the Selwyn River. In the article, Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee chairman Allen Lim said about 15-20 per cent of the river’s low flows could be attributed to irrigation

We’re standing firm – we Committee chairman Allen Lim responds: deserve a two per cent pay rise and the Government needs to The 15-20 per cent figure I pay for it, because our schools certainly can’t. We hope that you mentioned, referring to the relative impact of irrigation will stand with us too.

compared with other factors, comes from the scientific assessment made for the Selwyn Waihora water plan which became operative last year. It represents the average reduction in Waihora spring-fed streams (not just Selwyn) caused by cumulative irrigation takes. Climate played a big part in the current situation. There are examples of other rivers and lakes that have gone dry or are at record lows but are not subject to irrigation takes, such as Lake Lyndon in Porters Pass. To deny that the lack of rainfall for the last three winters has anything to do with the river going dry, and Lake Lyndon at record lows, is like saying CO2 is not a greenhouse gas and there is no climate change. Interestingly enough, at the time of writing this, the Selwyn River at Coes Ford is flowing again at around 150 l/s after the 50-plus millimetres of rain received in the weekend. We need to consider all factors and not close our mind to any. To this end, in our last meeting, the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee resolved to put the near river augmentation project for the Selwyn River up for funding. We want to have the Selwyn swimmable long before 2040. I would like to encourage anyone with a bit of energy to channel it and help us manage the water.

Police seek owners of recovered property „„ By Tom Doudney POLICE ARE looking for the owners of more than 30 items including cellphones, tools, silverware and a snowboard, after coming across an “Aladdin’s Cave” of stolen property near Lincoln. The unexpected haul was found when Senior Constable Jim Manning visited a Tancreds Rd property last month with a warrant to arrest a Lincoln woman, 27, for failing to appear in court. The woman, who had been charged with shop lifting, did not live at the address but was known to frequent it. On searching the address, Senior Constable Manning uncovered several marijuana plants, equipment for smoking methamphetamine, three stolen vehicles, a .22 rifle and amuni-

tion and numerous stolen items, several of which he realised were connected with two reported burglaries. “It was like an Aladdin’s cave,” he said. “It took about 10 police three hours to search the house and recover everything we got.” The woman who police had been seeking was not found at the property but police caught up with her later and she has since appeared in court. Senior Constable Manning said she and two men in their 30s who lived at the property were facing a variety of charges related to burglary, theft of the vehicles and drugs.

News Lincoln students in Relay for Life „„ By Daniella Judge INSPIRED BY last year’s Doing Good campaign run by the school council, Lincoln High students have formed a team of 27 to take part in the annual Relay for Life fundraiser at Brookside Park, Rolleston. The Doing Good campaign was set up to encourage students to do all they could for the good of others and specifically promote participation in events that fundraise for charity. It raised over $40,000 in the first year. Team captain and co-organiser Tessa English said she got involved after seeing what an amazing job the Lincoln High team did last year and deciding she wanted to continue that again. “Not only to support the Cancer Society but to encourage students to get involved in great causes like this too, especially because they play such a huge role in our community,” she said. Co-organiser Nicole Spriggs said she was involved because she wanted to make a difference. “Earlier this year I went to Camp Quality and saw how

Bid to change the way we travel A major planning document has laid bare the “significant” challenges faced in moving Canterbury from a car culture to a more public transportorientated city. Tom Doudney reports UNLESS PUBLIC transport patronage can be improved, there will be an extra 80,000 cars on the city’s roads in 2041 and 40 per cent more congestion. But getting people to change their ways is not going to easy, a report suggests. The draft future public transport strategic business case was presented to the greater Christchurch public transport joint committee last week. It identifies a number of challenges facing authorities in developing and increasing patronage of public transport over the coming decades. The Selwyn district has grown significantly post-earthquake and the business case showed it has been poorly served by public transport, compared to car accessibility.

JAM PACKED: Congestion is expected to worsen unless steps to increase patronage of public transport can be increased. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

This included poor travel time and reliability of public transport compared to private vehicles. Peak time congestion due to more people driving themselves ensured public transport remained slower than alternatives and further discouraged people from using it. Currently only 2.3 per cent of trips made in the Selwyn/ Waimakariri/Christchurch area over a year are on public transport, while 83 per cent are

in private vehicles, with the rest walking or cycling. The Regional Public Transport Plan (2014) aims to increase that to three per cent by 2020 and five per cent by 2030. However, the strategic business case concluded that the challenges facing public transport in Selwyn/ Waimakariri/Christchurch were significant. “If the problems are not addressed it is unlikely that

public transport targets will be realised,” it stated. “Current trends are for stagnant or declining ridership and that the status quo will not be enough to attract people to choose public transport.” Significant enhancements to public transport would require a large capital commitment and land use would have to be managed to support this. For example, by allowing higher density development

along public transport corridors. Environment Canterbury deputy chairman Steve Lowndes, a member of the joint committee, said getting people in the car-dominated culture to shift to public transport was a challenge. “Cars are cheap, petrol is relatively cheap and while those things exist in the market, it is not going to be easy,” Mr Lowndes said. “We have to make public transport an attractive option.” Canterbury University transport expert Simon Kingham said the area was unusual compared to others around the world in that it was not investing in rail. Doing so, he said, could help increase public transport usage. “I would hope that ECan and others would be looking at rail,” he said. The next phase of planning for the join committee will involve creating a programme business case focusing on how these challenges should be addressed and how costs would be shared. •The state of public transport in Canterbury, page 11

Public transport numbers Cars take out buses in travel time race

„„ By Tom Doudney THAT CARS and not public transport have been the preferred method of getting around in Canterbury for decades can be illustrated with a single statistic. To find the peak year for public transport patronage in the city, you have to go all the way back to 1945, when 32 million passenger trips were recorded. Currently, patronage is less than half that, at 14 million trips per year, in spite of the population having doubled since then. Patronage began to fall away from the 1950s, as private vehicle use increased. It reached its lowest levels in 1992 when less than seven million trips were recorded. However, numbers were recovering steadily in the early 2000s, as measures were introduced to modernise the bus network. This period saw the introduction of the Metrocard, Orbiter service, real time travel information and the opening of the first central city interchange. By 2010, patronage was at its highest levels (17 million trips) since the early 1970s, but things

would change again the following year when the February 2011 earthquake struck. The earthquake altered travel patterns and affected the operation of the bus network. Previously, almost all buses went through central Christchurch and the area’s closure post-earthquake was a big disruption. Environment Canterbury’s redesign of the bus network to the current ‘hub and spokes’ model, which focused on con-

necting services in the suburbs with less routes coming directly into the city, was implemented in December 2014. However, numbers which had recovered slightly since 2011 have since continued to fall again, dropping three per cent in the 2015/2016 financial year while patronage for the country as a whole increased by the same percentage. In the 2016/2017 financial year to date, numbers have so far fallen a further 2.5 per cent.

„„ By Tom Doudney CATCHING A bus from the central city to Belfast could you take you 25 minutes longer during afternoon peak hour traffic than if you had gone by car. It’s findings like these, from a city council analysis in November, which illustrate one of the key challenges in getting more people to get on the bus. The analysis of four key routes between the central city and outer suburbs showed car travel was much faster than bus travel, while bike travel was faster than bus travel on three of the routes. Environment Canterbury data suggests that frequency is also a key driver of patronage, with the five lines that run every 15 minutes typically attracting more passengers than routes with longer intervals. Bus journey times are also more variable than other modes of transport. The strategic business case found public transport reliability in Canterbury was “considerably lower” than Wellington and Auckland where “approximately 95 per cent of

services run on time.” In Canterbury, reliability varied between 12 and 50 per cent during late afternoon peak hour traffic for buses heading out of the city. Things were better during the morning peak hour with buses heading into the city being between 50 and 90 per cent reliable.

Restoring hearing for SPORTS islanders rewarding work

Fashion „„ By Tom Doudney SEEING THE smiles on the faces of Cook Islanders who had just had their hearing restored will be a memory that stays with Rolleston audiologist Brenna Sincock. Ms Sincock recently spent five days working at Rarotonga Hospital, testing people and fitting them with hearing aids. She had been invited to volunteer by her former employer, Scott Wright, who set up the audiology programme about 15 years ago. “It was really rewarding,” Ms Sincock said. “They were so grateful for people donating hearing aids and so happy to be able to hear again.” One 22-year-old man had appeared “stand off-ish” and didn’t smile at all when he showed up for treatment. At first Ms Sincock thought that maybe it was a difference in culture or because he wasn’t very fluent in English. “Then I tested him, found out he had this really severe loss and I had a really good grunty hearing aid that I could fit to him, so I programmed it all up and I turned it on,” she said.

The Maureen Drayton Cup for Excellence in Year 12 went to Amy Burney (above) while the Pauline Miller Cup for Excellence in Year 11 went to Fleur Neill (right). Amy studied courses at both level two and level three and achieved exceptional results throughout all of her subjects.

HELPING OUT: Rolleston audiologist Brenna Sincock with John, 4, one of many Cook Islanders she treated for hearing issues over her five days at Rarotonga Hospital. ​

“From then on a smile just came over his face and stayed on his face for the entire appointment. He just started talking to me and he was a completely different person from then on.” While her airfares and accommodation were covered, she had to shut her Rolleston practice while she was away. “I just thought it would be a great opportunity to see a different side of audiology,” Ms Sincock said.

“In terms of the types of hearing loss I was seeing over there they have definitely a lot more severe cases of hearing loss, so I was dealing with a lot more people with severe to profound types of loss whereas in New Zealand those sorts of people would probably have been referred on for cochlear implants.” Cook Islanders don’t have access to audiology services apart from a visiting clinician every six to 12 months.

She received a number of awards, including first in level three geological science and first equal in level three mathematics with calculus, as well as being awarded an elite scholar award. Fleur also received a number of awards, including first equal in drama, first in media production and classical studies, as well as being awarded an elite scholar award.

News Celebrations for squadron Fashion Air Training Corps Christchurch secretary Neil Wech writes about the history of the organisation ahead of a series of events celebrating its 75th anniversary this weekend

Gardening THE AIR Training Corps was born out of World War 2, when the need to supply pre-trained people for the air force, both pilots and maintenance grew. The war quickly taught that you could replace planes and equipment, but not trained people. And so the ATC was first formed in England (February 1 1941) and grew rapidly worldwide. This was followed in New Zealand with recognition from War Cabinet authority for the NZ ATC on February 13, 1941. No 17 (City of Christchurch) Squadron is one of the oldest ATC units in New Zealand, officially formed in 1942. It is also one of the largest, regularly parading about 100 cadets, noncommissioned officers and officers.

Motoring

HISTORY RECALLED: Elgar and Shirley Dickson review a collection of early photographs from the No 17 Air Training Corps unit, accompanied by cadets Jed Buchanan and Caitlyn Cleall. ​

The role of cadet units in New Zealand has changed since its initial wartime establishment. Today it is supported by the New Zealand Defence Force and, by legislation, is a partnership between defence and the community it operates in. Flying is still the major focus of the air cadet units together

with leadership, outdoor, first aid activities. No 17 squadron has a proud history, having been recognised as the most efficient ATC squadron in New Zealand 10 times since 2000, and has numerous awards for competitions and from their air force parent body. The unit is celebrating its 75th

anniversary with several functions this weekend. This starts with a meet and greet on Friday night, a combined wing parade with all four Christchurch-based units participating on Saturday, followed by a formal dinner in the Air Force Museum of New Zealand on Saturday night. Registrations for the weekend have been received from throughout New Zealand and Australia from ex-cadets. Among those attending will be two early cadets from the unit. James Sewell, who is 94 and lives in Feilding, is believed to be the first cadet signed into the unit on its formation. Elgar Dickson, 90 and living in Christchurch, joined in early 1942. Both went on to serve long and distinguished careers in the Royal New Zealand Air Force. Registrations are still open for all events for the weekend and registration forms are available on the squadron website. The wing parade will be held on the parade ground at the cadet base at Wigram and the public are invited to this function at no charge. Visitors should be seated by 10.30am.

Explosives found on property „„ By Andrew King A WOMAN cleaning out a deceased person’s estate in Prebbleton found explosive materials in a shed on Thursday. The property on Blakes Rd was owned by a registered explosives technician who died recently. While cleaning up the property the woman came across “blasting sticks”, police said. The property is close to a subdivision, but there was no danger to the public. “The material was well stored and the person that found it called police straight away,” he said. Defence force personnel were called in and removed the explosives. “It’s not every day you find things like this,” the police spokesman said. He said it was more common to find old mortar shells rather than well stored explosive material. Police and defence force personnel decide who is best placed to remove the material.

Robinne Weiss Our People ‘Bug lady’ to educate kids using Your Local Views Naturalist Robinne Weiss, known as ‘the bug lady’, is about to launch a new education programme and has a children’s novel being released tomorrow. She spoke to Tom Doudney about her lifelong fascination with insects, why her home near Southbridge is called Crazy Corner Farm and more

News

Tell me about what you were doing with ‘The Bugmobile’? The Bugmobile has been closed for about two years but that was something I ran for about 10 years. I took live insects into schools and pre-schools throughout Canterbury and told them about the insects and a variety of issues relating to insects. What sort of insects did you take into schools? I focused on the insects they might see themselves in their backyards, in the bush on Banks Peninsula or anywhere here in the South Island. So often kids watch the Discovery Channel or whatever and they see all these amazing things from other places in the world and they don’t really know about the amazing things here in their own backyards. How did you find kids tended to react to the insects? They loved them, it was great.

Part of my mission with the Bugmobile was to give kids positive experiences with insects so one of the things that the programme led up to was kids handling live insects. In 10 years I only had maybe 10 kids who by the end of the programme still refused to hold an insect. You came originally from Pennsylvania in the United States. How does the insect life there compare to here? Is one place richer than the other? Yes, I’m afraid Pennsylvania has a lot more bugs than New Zealand does. There are interesting things about each but it’s hard because I taught about insects in the US for many years and there are certainly things I could do with kids there that I can’t do here simply because we just don’t have the volume of insects. In Pennsylvania it was always guaranteed you would see something spectacular if you

time I was called ‘the bug lady’ was probably at seven-yearsold and the neighbours used to ring me every time they had centipedes in their bathtub to come and retrieve them. What is it you find so fascinating about insect life? I think it’s because we know so little about them. Any

amateur with patience and good observation skills and record keeping can discover things that nobody else has discovered before. Globally we only know a fraction of what’s out there. What brought you over to New Zealand? My husband got a job at Landcare Research in Lincoln. He is no longer at that job but we are still here. As a naturalist at Camp Tamarack in Canada you got to care for and teach with an 2.4m long Burmese python named Ka. What was that like? It takes some getting used to, they are very strong and muscular animals and I am a very small person. When you hold a snake you need to support their bodies or they feel unsafe. Because my body is small she would be wrapped two or three times around my torso as I was teaching and it always made the kids really nervous. Your place is called Crazy Corner Farm. Why is that? It’s a little acre and a half that used to be a council gravel reserve back in the late 1800s and it is in the middle of 500ha farms all around us.

ple science and creativity cal Views Views The neighbours actually call it Funny Farm because there has been this succession of strange people who have lived here. So we work really hard to live up to the weirdness of the property and I think we do okay but there have been some really strange people here over the last 150 years. In what way were these previous residents strange? The one that everyone in the neighbourhood knows about is these two brothers who used to live here maybe 60 or 80 years ago and they both brewed moonshine. They each tried to keep the other from drinking their moonshine so they hid it all over the property, under buildings, in the animal sheds, in every little nook and

cranny. We are still finding bottles of their moonshine, although the lids have been rusted off them all. When you find one, I guess you just have to tip it out? Yeah, but we have a few of the bottles lined up as a display in the shed. After you finished up with the Bugmobile you started writing and the first novel you wrote was A Glint of Exoskeleton then you published an activity guide, Insects in the Classroom, in January this year and now your second novel The Dragon Slayer’s Son is due for release tomorrow. What’s that about? It’s a fantasy novel about a boy who discovers in one fell

swoop that his father is dead and he was killed by a dragon because he was a dragon slayer. So he is whisked off and has many adventures and finds out his father might not actually be dead, so he and some of his friends go searching throughout the South Island to find out what has happened to his father. The dragons are of course fictional but based on New Zealand fauna. I thought ‘what would dragons be like if they were in New Zealand? Well, many of them would be flightless just like our birds and many of our insects, so what features would they have to live in the various habitats here?’ So I really thought about the ecology of the creatures that really do exist here in New Zealand and made sure my dragons fit with that ecology. Tell me more about this new education initiative, Bugs and Books, which you’re starting up where you combine science and literature to engage children. I was finished with the Bugmobile but really wanted to get back into the classroom a little

bit again and for me, I really love that intersection between science and art. I think using facts to inspire creativity is cool. It adds a dimension to our study of the natural world and to art, so I thought ‘I can put these two together in a programme’. It engages the kids who are keen on bugs and science because we are looking at live insects and talking about the facts behind them but for insects the facts are often a lot stranger than fiction. Then we take these facts and say ‘create a character based on insects and make sure your character has factual characteristics but also give them some personality’. We talk about character building and then the kids get a chance to write a story based on their character. So it also engages the kids who are artistic and love to write. • For more information on Robinne Weiss’ books and new education initiative, visit her website robinneweiss.wordpress. com

UNDER PRESSURE: Weedons batsman Gareth Painter was judged not out in spite of a big appeal from Sefton players behind the stumps. SNAPSHOT: Weedons batsman Matt Parker plays and misses. The ball went on to dislodge the bails, bringing an end to Parker’s stay at the crease.

BOWLED ‘EM: Brad Nightingale had to go after the ball clattered into his stumps.

THREATING: Sefton’s chief destroyer Ian King bowling to Brad Nightingale.

Sefton add country title to silverware collection „„ By Tom Doudney SEFTON ARE triple crown winners after they beat Weedons in the country cricket two-day final on Saturday to complete a perfect season. The North Canterbury side, a dominant force for more than two decades, have a packed silverware cabinet after adding the CRV Ambreed Canterbury

Country two-day trophy to their one-day and T20 titles. After day one was washed out last weekend, the game came down to a first innings shoot-out at Mainpower Oval. The day started ominously for Weedons, with captain Josh Watson being bowled by the competition’s star strike bowler Ian King in the first over. The Ellesmere side offered

some early resistance before King returned for his second spell. He ripped through the Weedons side with five more wickets, reducing the challengers to 68/9. Only a useful effort of 28 runs for the last wicket between Devon Nightingale and Fraser Austin stalled the misery.

Fraser Sheat, who bowled without luck, and Matt Rowe backed up King with consistent pressure as Weedons were all over in 37 overs for 96. Austin dismissed Sefton opener Matt Laffey early but Lance Taylor was in no mood to be contained. When he reached an impressive run-a-ball century, his 166-run partnership with

Tim Harrison was ended as the players shook hands to conclude the match. Sefton recognised King as their player of the season, with his 45 wickets eclipsing Canterbury stalwart Michael Sharpe’s record dating back to the 1990/91 season. PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY •More sport, pages 24-25

The Lincoln High School Senior A Boys Volleyball team will be attending the New Zealand Secondary Schools volleyball tournament in Palmerston North from the 26th of March to the 1st of April. This is the first time for a couple of years that Lincoln is sending a boy’s team to New Zealand’s largest secondary schools sporting event. The team is full of experience with a sprinkling of youth, which means the hopes are high for some pleasing results. With the help and guidance of ex-student Pesa Morrison, the boys have been training consistently twice a week since the start of the school year and have made some excellent progress in both their ability and coming together as a tight team. The team competes in the Canterbury Volleyball Monday night competition and have recently represented Lincoln High School at both the South Island (in which they finished a pleasing 9th) and Canterbury championships, in which they have shown some impressive improvement as well as achieving some pleasing results. In Palmerston North Lincoln High School will be competing with over 180 other teams and will be looking to continue the schools proud history of performing well at New Zealand’s largest secondary schools sporting event. For five of the boys (Jack Lavender, Will Wroe, Regan Kay, Riley Bruhns and Ben Bowen) this will be their last opportunity to participate at the national tournament and is something they have been building and training for over the past 5 years. For the other five players (Carlito Shalfoon, Robson Harker, Ryan Vincent, Mark Turner and Ben Sisson), this will be their first time representing Lincoln at the tournament and no doubt will be a chance for them to learn what it takes to compete with the best, whilst also striving to send the older boys off on a positive and winning note.

New athletics records BUSINESSES EIGHT students have set 13 new Darfield High School athletics records. The Darfield High School Athletics Championships were held earlier this month. Sports co-ordinator Karen Armstrong said it was unusual to have so many records fall at the same time. “But we have some very good athletes coming through mainly as a result of the growth of the Selwyn Athletic Club based in Rolleston,” she said. “This is a great club which has meant more students than normal are participating in athletics.” New records set included: Senior girls Georgia Shinn – 1500m, 5min 15.5sec (previous record 5min 20sec, set in 2000) Under-12 girls Anna McKenzie – high jump, 1.30m (previous record 1.29m, set in 2014); long Jump, 4.14m (previous record 4.04m, set in 1983).

HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS: The team of Arking Up, from left, 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 competing for the prize for the round as well as the overall win. ​

Halswell fighting to claim two-day cricket title THE LAST round of the Metro cricket two-day season had topof-the-table Halswell hosting third placed Sumner at Halswell Domain. After being asked to bat first, Sumner were 60/1 after 15 overs and looking to put up a good first innings score. However, the Halswell bowlers started to slow the scoring and, as a result, claimed three more wickets to have Sumner 64/4 after 20 overs.

Sumner then had a good partnership to reach 95/4 before Halswell’s Dayle Eathorne took some wickets, bowling well to finish with 4-41. Sumner were dismissed for 160. In the chase, Halswell were 24/0 before a collapse left them at 26/4. A 45-run partnership between Leighton Johnston and Jethan Jeet steadied the innings before Jeet was dismissed for 20 and Halswell were in trouble again

H

at 70/6. Johnston and Eathorne had a 30-run partnership, but after Eathorne was dismissed, Halswell lost two quick wickets. Johnston was the last man out for 46, and Halswell was dismissed for 118. Sumner then had 25 minutes to bat but Halswell took a vital wicket leaving Sumner 29/1 at stumps. Halswell will need to bowl well next week to win this game and claim the two-day championship.

Leeston duo take out champions title „„ By Karolyn Boon LEESTON PLAYERS scooped the pool in the Ellesmere Champion of Champions Pairs played at the Southbridge Green on Sunday. Colin Lowery (skip) and Trevor Kennett (lead) won the men’s final, defeating Mark Ridden (skip) and Mark Lowry (lead) of Dunsandel by 23-5. Racing out to a 10-0 lead after five ends, good leading by Kennett was backed up by Lowery. The closest Dunsandel got to them was 14-4 after nine ends, but the gap widened and the game, which was scheduled for 18 ends, was conceded after 16 ends at 23-5.

Lowery dedicated his win to his mother Hilda, patron of Leeston Bowling Club, who passed away last week at the age of 96. In the women’s final, the Leeston pairing of Valmai Hantz (skip) and Jennifer Heslop (lead) defeated the Tai Tapu pair of Heather Murdoch (skip) and Waverney Potts (lead) by 13-10. This was a much closer final. A four on the 10th end to Leeston gave them a 10-5 lead and a wellconceived shot moved the jack back giving them a 12-7 lead after 15 ends. Tai Tapu moved to 12-10 on the 17th end but were unable to close the gap on the last end, going down 13-10.

Living waters

project planned

Roading reconstruction helps create smoother journeys Roading reconstruction work is helping to improve our roading network. Extra funding for road reconstruction work was introduced in 2014 from a roading targeted rate to help meet the rising costs of roading repair and renewal work. Vehicle traffic on Selwyn roads has been increasing more quickly than our population, while more heavy vehicles, including dairy tankers, construction vehicles and trucks travelling to and from Izone, are also using local roads. The funding has been used to accelerate road reconstruction work on sections of road where the road has suffered significant damage and the road base needs to be reconstructed, the surface levelled and resealed. On these sections of road, pothole and digout repairs cannot adequately repair road damage. Since July 2014, 11.6km of road reconstruction work has been completed on sections of these roads: · · · · · ·

The Council recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Living Water, the Department of Conservation’s ten 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 Living Water vision is for a sustainable dairy industry to be part of healthy functioning ecosystems that together enrich the lives of all New Zealanders. 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 Council fund a Biodiversity Officer who will be working to increase the abundance and variety of native wildlife in the Ararira/LII catchment (pictured above). They will focus on the Yarrs Lagoon/ Ta-rere-kau-tuku area of the catchment and will be working with the community and other agencies.

Road reconstruction is also now starting on 0.5km of Bealey Road, west of Waianiwaniwa River bridge. Telegraph Road near Darfield (pictured) is an example of how road rehabilitation work is providing a smoother ride for vehicles and helping reduce ongoing maintenance costs. In the period from July 2013 to March 2015, 109 potholes were recorded on Telegraph Road between Darfield township and Bealey Road. The road is a busy rural road and is also used by many trucks. Road rehabilitation work was undertaken on this section of road in stages with the work completed in early 2015. From April 2016 until March 2017, after road rehabilitation was completed, only 7 potholes were recorded on this section of road, a major reduction from the number recorded previously.

Christchurch based DOC Operations Manager, Andy Thompson, says Yarr’s Lagoon/Ta-rere-kautuku is key site for native wildlife in the Ararira/LII Catchment. “I’m delighted the Living Water funding will enable Selwyn District Council to focus on protecting and enhancing Yarr’s Lagoon/Ta-rere-kau-tuku, as this is a significant biodiversity hotspot in the Ararira/LII Catchment.” “I’m very happy to see the Council play its part in efforts to support indigenous revegetation and increasing biodiversity in Canterbury,” says Selwyn Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall. Biodiversity Officer Andy Spanton joined Selwyn District Council recently and will be working with the Living Water team on activities and initiatives within the Ararira/LII sub- catchment of Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere that support Living Water’s goals. Other aspects of Andy’s Biodiversity Officer role for the Council are to carry out activities to support native biodiversity, including the management of the Council’s Natural Environment Fund which assists native planting and biodiversity management on private land, and coordinating the identification and ecological assessment of significant native vegetation sites in the district.

Bus stop areas marked This month, Council will be marking bus stop boxes on all its urban bus stops. This will make it easier for bus drivers when dropping off or picking up passengers. As our townships grow, it becomes more important for bus stops to be marked with boxes to ensure there is enough space for bus drivers to stop.

Easter Storytimes for kids!

Selwyn District Libraries invite you to join them for special evening Storytime sessions. They will be celebrating Easter with stories, songs and fun! The sessions are aimed at 2-7 year olds but everyone including family and friends are welcome. Kids can also dress in their pyjamas if they want to. The sessions will take place at:

Road repairs are planned on Leaches, Bealey and Minchins Road, with traffic controls operating. Road resurfacing is planned on Telegraph and McLaughlins Roads, with stop/go traffic controls operating. Footpath construction will occur on State Highway 75 and School Road in Tai Tapu.

Living waters

project planned

Roading reconstruction helps create smoother journeys Roading reconstruction work is helping to improve our roading network. Extra funding for road reconstruction work was introduced in 2014 from a roading targeted rate to help meet the rising costs of roading repair and renewal work. Vehicle traffic on Selwyn roads has been increasing more quickly than our population, while more heavy vehicles, including dairy tankers, construction vehicles and trucks travelling to and from Izone, are also using local roads. The funding has been used to accelerate road reconstruction work on sections of road where the road has suffered significant damage and the road base needs to be reconstructed, the surface levelled and resealed. On these sections of road, pothole and digout repairs cannot adequately repair road damage. Since July 2014, 11.6km of road reconstruction work has been completed on sections of these roads: · · · · · ·

The Council recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Living Water, the Department of Conservation’s ten 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 Living Water vision is for a sustainable dairy industry to be part of healthy functioning ecosystems that together enrich the lives of all New Zealanders. 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 Council fund a Biodiversity Officer who will be working to increase the abundance and variety of native wildlife in the Ararira/LII catchment (pictured above). They will focus on the Yarrs Lagoon/ Ta-rere-kau-tuku area of the catchment and will be working with the community and other agencies.

Road reconstruction is also now starting on 0.5km of Bealey Road, west of Waianiwaniwa River bridge. Telegraph Road near Darfield (pictured) is an example of how road rehabilitation work is providing a smoother ride for vehicles and helping reduce ongoing maintenance costs. In the period from July 2013 to March 2015, 109 potholes were recorded on Telegraph Road between Darfield township and Bealey Road. The road is a busy rural road and is also used by many trucks. Road rehabilitation work was undertaken on this section of road in stages with the work completed in early 2015. From April 2016 until March 2017, after road rehabilitation was completed, only 7 potholes were recorded on this section of road, a major reduction from the number recorded previously.

Christchurch based DOC Operations Manager, Andy Thompson, says Yarr’s Lagoon/Ta-rere-kautuku is key site for native wildlife in the Ararira/LII Catchment. “I’m delighted the Living Water funding will enable Selwyn District Council to focus on protecting and enhancing Yarr’s Lagoon/Ta-rere-kau-tuku, as this is a significant biodiversity hotspot in the Ararira/LII Catchment.” “I’m very happy to see the Council play its part in efforts to support indigenous revegetation and increasing biodiversity in Canterbury,” says Selwyn Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall. Biodiversity Officer Andy Spanton joined Selwyn District Council recently and will be working with the Living Water team on activities and initiatives within the Ararira/LII sub- catchment of Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere that support Living Water’s goals. Other aspects of Andy’s Biodiversity Officer role for the Council are to carry out activities to support native biodiversity, including the management of the Council’s Natural Environment Fund which assists native planting and biodiversity management on private land, and coordinating the identification and ecological assessment of significant native vegetation sites in the district.

Bus stop areas marked This month, Council will be marking bus stop boxes on all its urban bus stops. This will make it easier for bus drivers when dropping off or picking up passengers. As our townships grow, it becomes more important for bus stops to be marked with boxes to ensure there is enough space for bus drivers to stop.

Easter Storytimes for kids!

On the roads this week

Selwyn District Libraries invite you to join them for special evening Storytime sessions. They will be celebrating Easter with stories, songs and fun! The sessions are aimed at 2-7 year olds but everyone including family and friends are welcome. Kids can also dress in their pyjamas if they want to. The sessions will take place at:

Road repairs are planned on Leaches, Bealey and Minchins Road, with traffic controls operating. Road resurfacing is planned on Telegraph and McLaughlins Roads, with stop/go traffic controls operating. Footpath construction will occur on State Highway 75 and School Road in Tai Tapu.

· · · ·

Work is continuing on the Masefield Drive upgrade and footpath construction. Manse Road roading and stormwater improvement work continues. Temporary traffic management is in place at these sites. Road reconstruction is complete on Gerald Street.

133rd Hororata Racing Club

.kiwi

SELWYN TIMES

Riccarton Park Raceway Sat 25th March - First Race 12noon

Race meeting to mark club’s 133rd anniversary This Saturday, March 25, Selwyn will celebrate its thoroughbred racing heritage at the Riccarton Park Racecourse with a race meeting marking the 133rd year of racing for the Hororata Racing Club, now Canterbury Racing-Hororata. There will be nine races on the card, with a combined stake total of $265,000. The day’s feature event is the $80,000 Valachi Downs Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes sponsored by Kevin Hickman, who has a close affinity with the Hororata area. This race has been upgraded to a Group 3 event, making it the most important race in the history of Horarata racing and one of the most prestigious races in the country. In additon to the high standard of racing, there will be plenty for families to enjoy, including picnic spots and a bouncy castle. Popular songstress Nyree Huyser will be back to entertain the crowds, performing in the birdcage between races. Racing starts around 12 noon, with the last race running just before 5pm.

The club’s history The Hororata Racing Club was one of the earliest provincial clubs to be formed, with its first meeting held at Hororata on January 6, 1885. Run under the Canterbury Jockey Club (C.J.C.) rules, it was an eightrace programme for stakes of 135 sovereigns. The inaugural Hororata Cup, with a purse of 40 sovereigns, was won by Grand Duke owned by Mr T. Quill. After the first meeting at Hororata a return excursion train from Christchurch was put on, travelling to Coalgate with both horses and patrons, who then walked the few miles to and from the course. A ‘Ladies Bracelet’ race was run at the first meeting, and this was revived at the centennial meeting in 1984. Since that year, Petersens Jewellers of Bush Inn Centre have donated a gold bracelet for the race, which is usually for two or three year-olds. This year’s bracelet, the 34th, is attached to the race for two year-olds. After the first 80 years, the course needed extensive improvements

and this, plus encouragement from the NZ Racing Conference for centralisation resulted in the club renting the Riccarton Racecourse for future meetings. The first meeting was held there in 1965. For the next 21 years Hororata retained its own secretary and independence, paying a rental fee to the C.J.C. for each meeting. By this time there were two meetings each year and on one occasion three, one of which struck a very wet day resulting in a serious financial effect. When the secretary retired in 1986, following discussion with the C.J.C. chairman and committee it was decided the Hororata Club would operate from the Riccarton headquarters with the C.J.C. as secretariat. By 2003, when the Canterbury Racing amalgamation between the C.J.C. and Amberley, North Canterbury and Hororata racing clubs and the Riccarton Turf Club took place, Hororata was a wellestablished segment of racing at Riccarton Park.

AGRICULTURAL FIELD DAYS

Chairman’s welcome On behalf of the organising committee, it is a pleasure for me to welcome you to the 66th year of the South Island Agricultural Field Days (SIAFD), our second year at Kirwee. During the 2017 field days you can expect to enjoy our ever-growing demonstration displays including silage and beet harvesting, as well as our usual demonstrations and a new initiative, lifestyle exhibits the whole family can enjoy. We are thankful to the many SIAFD supporters and community. While too many to mention individually, we would like to pass on our thanks to our neighbour Tony Redmond who has been a massive help to us. Without the Voluntary Committee of the SIAFD none of this would be possible and it is with heartfelt thanks to them that we can continue to produce the SIAFD.

MARCH 29-31 2017, KIRWEE

Scene set for a great show The 2017 South Island Agricultural Field Days (SIAFD) will take place March 29-31, and for the second time at the new site near Kirwee. The largest agricultural event in the South Island, it is held on alternate years between Otago and Canterbury, and with more than 600 exhibitors taking part this year it promises to have something for everyone. The volunteers, who plan and run the event, are proud of its status as New Zealand’s premier demonstration Field Days and this year will be no different, chair-

man of the SIAFD organising committee Rodney Hadfield says. “While the SIAFD have grown, evolved and moved with the time, we have stayed true to the aims we began with, in 1951 – to promote ingenuity and innovation and to provide farmers with an opportunity to view comparative demonstrations so they can make informed choices before purchasing machinery and equipment,” Mr Hadfield says. SIAFD media spokesperson Daniel Schat says the volunteers and community groups that run the field days are well-prepared and the scene is set for a great show. “Machinery demonstrations are a big part of South Island Field Days, and because we are just 20 minutes from Christchurch airport, we offer farmers and contractors throughout New Zealand an inexpensive way to check out and compare the latest gear,” Mr Schat says. “This year we have good crops of maize, fodder beat, pasture and oats ready for the harvest machinery. Cultivation and seeding machinery will also be in action. “Field Days are a time when machinery manufacturers

Irrigation is applied with a pivot irrigator tdonatned by local company Think Water Leeson. A new section for 2017 is the lifestyle section with exhibits the whole family can enjoy. “The lifestyle section adds something new to the Field Days,” Mr Schat says. “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 special events at SIAFD include Farm Trader magazine’s Top Tractor Shootout 2017. This

will compare variable transmission tractors made by the world’s leading brands, with judges testing the tractors on a range of criteria including performance and affordability. Two fencing competitions will also be held during the Field Days, while another popular event is the Agri-Innovation awards. These recognise New Zealandmade innovations or inventions, which can include implements, attachments or

Mr Hadfield says the Field Days would not be possible without the work of volunteers and community groups and Friends of the Field Days, who donate equipment and services.

He says the event is a good community fundraising opportunity for local schools and Young Farmers, who help with parking, running the tills and the entrance, and clean-up. More than 27,500 people attended SIAFD 2015 and organisers expect as many, or more this year. Among them will be Prime Minister Bill English, who is scheduled to visit on the second day of the event.

The famous and very popular Malvern A & P Show is on again this Saturday and as always will offer a true country agricultural and farming experience. This year’s show features sheep, wool, poultry and pigeons, horses and show jumping as well as the President’s favourite, the Cattle section in which the show’s convenor has over ninety entries. There will be something special in the Produce Shed where Margaret Johnston’s knitted cast of Downton Abbey as seventeen individual mice creations, ‘Mouseton Abbey’ will be on display, along with garden and home produce, cookery, flowers, needlework and handcrafts. Check out the art and photography in the back shed where you will find the creations of some exceptional budding artists from seven local schools. Performing on stage will be some brilliantly talented local artists and groups such as Emma Sparey, Ashy Batchelor, Holly Kimber, Minaia Davis and the Ellesmere Pipe Band with the wonderful D J Singh as compere. Sheffield Primary School’s Kapa Haka Group will also debut this year, with a performance at 11.45am. The children are sure to be entertained in the fun zone truck entertainment area too and in finding Scavenger Hunt items listed on an attachment to a flyer handed out at the entry gate. This will have the children hunting all over the grounds in the hope of completing their entry to earn a prize. Always a winner is one of the last events of the day, the Speed Shearers who will kick off with a relay against the Woodchoppers. With so much to see, be sure to head to the 2017 Malvern A & P Show this Saturday, 25 March at the Sheffield Showgrounds on the West Coast Road in Sheffield. It will run from 8.30am until 4.00 pm.

Cooking outdoors Barbecuing and eating outdoors is particularly enjoyable whether a pizza cooked on a wood fired oven, ham falling off the bone of a rotisserie or black charcoaled sausages straight off a charcoal barbecue. Outdoor cooking has progressed from the homemade or small round charcoal barbecues once common in New Zealand. While still great with the true charcoal flavour they add to steak and sausages, there are bigger, shinier and some might say better alternatives now available. Gas fired barbecues have become very affordable and fantastic when cooking up a feed for the regular troops or a large crowd. Those with a hot plate, side burner and rotisserie, cover all the bases, taking the mess out of the kitchen and into the yard where a few fat splatters are less of a concern. Gas pizza ovens can also be purchased as free standing models or for fitting into

a hand crafted fireplace. Complete gas ovens range in price from as little as $200 up to the $10,000 mark. Powder coated and stainless steel options are available, some with ceramic stones for producing a crisp based pizza. Many are like a gas barbecue in that they can be wheeled to a position so can be stored under shelter in inclement weather. Building pizza ovens in the backyard has grown in popularity. These give a true wood fired pizza taste and do a pretty tasty roast, which takes around an hour and a half while the fire burns at the back of the oven. Initially, the fire is built in the centre of the oven to heat the walls, floor and roof, then pushed to the back before placing the food in the centre. For roasting, the fire needs turning from time to time to maintain the heat while the roasting pan should also be rotated.

Trends in garage doors More awareness on home heating has led many people to choose an insulated garage door. These make a difference in keeping a home warm and are great when the garage is used as a work area or gym. Local company, Custom Made Garage Doors have noted an increase in demand for new insulated garage doors and for insulating existing garage doors. “Most sectional doors can be insulated with the Phoenix and Idaho leaders in flat panel doors nationwide,” advises Mal Hurrell, founder of Custom Made Garage Doors who produce a wide range of garage doors. Popular styles in the company’s lineup have been the attractive Phoenix Flat Panel, Idaho Negative Detail and Smartline garage doors. All are constructed from powder coated steel

with a durable polypropylene finish and come fully insulated. These doors are high quality and made strong so will last the distance. The new Smartline door is available in over thirty colours making it easy to match the garage door to the exterior revere, roof or trim of the house, with it available in the fashionable colours of Grey Friars, Matt Black and Iron Sand. For a more basic garage door, the Custom Ribline sectional door has a strong following with entry level buyers building their first home. Produced from colour steel with a woodgrain or smooth texture finish, it can be insulated. Timber garage doors have also been in heavy demand. Custom Made Garage Doors produce Cedar doors in a range of finishes. These are stylish while adding

warmth and a welcoming feel to the home, which is not only cosmetic given that they can be insulated. There is also the option of having a made-to-order plywood door with heaps of potential for matching the garage door to the features of a character home, while for a really modern look Flush Mount Doors are superb. These fit seamlessly with their connecting wall making them hardly noticeable. All garage doors made by Custom Made are fitted with the new high quality Merlin Commander MyQ Automatic Opener, which can be operated from your iPhone. They also supply automatic gate openers to accompany the gates they make. These include sliding gates through to gas bottle and pedestrian gates, which can be made to match a garage door.

Mal and his team recommend servicing your garage door every two years so it will perform at its best and last longer. They provide a repairs and maintenance service, something that is their forte, along with the production of a wide selection of garage doors. Check their full range at: www.custommade.co.nz and for advice on maintaining your garage door.

Lift the look of your garden Life situations change. We may purchase a home, have a family, watch our children grow and see them leave the nest. With these changes our home and garden may also change. When life is busy we may need an easy care property or help with the garden to limit stress and allow more time to enjoy life. Children-friendly grounds may also be needed with space for play equipment. Ross Legg and his team at Revive Landscaping recognise the pressures of modern day living and how our needs change. They can assist with regular monthly or occasional garden maintenance, garden makeovers, new landscaping projects and dressing your garden for a property sale. “We do a lot of reconstruction work, retaining the skeleton while enhancing with new plantings and trimming existing trees and shrubs,” explains Ross. “Revamping a garden can be more rewarding than forming a new structure as there is plenty to work with and you can see the transformation.” Their expertise and experience in landscaping, which in Ross’ case totes up to over eighteen years, means they can interpret landscape plans while incorporating your wishes for your

outdoor space. They will not rip out the whole garden. Instead, they selectively shape and retain trees and shrubs while removing unwanted and unattractive plants so your garden achieves its full potential and no plant dominates. “We were so impressed with Revive Landscaping’s first visit that we’ve had them back numerous times. We’re fussy when it comes to our garden yet once again they’ve not disappointed. The lads work hard and know what they’re doing when it comes to pruning and shaping, leaving our property clean, tidy and looking beautiful,” says Jason, a happy customer. “What I love most is that they complete work in just three hours that would take us more than a day to do, and take away the waste.” Where a garden is overgrown, Revive Landscaping start with an initial cleanup before cultivating garden beds, laying composts and mulches to stimulate the soil and give plants the best chance of flourishing. With a solid knowledge of plants, they will ensure that each has sufficient space to grow and that groupings are not too tight. If you want to upgrade your outdoor area without starting from scratch, Revive

Landscaping can help. They will work with you and any landscape designer, introducing new features by constructing decks, pergolas, water features, irrigation systems, lighting and artistic elements so your garden meets your needs and is an extension of your home. Ross would rather retain an old tree that has taken years to grow, pruning to enhance its branch structure and even adding up-lighting. To learn more about Revive Landscaping go to: www. revivelandscaping.co.nz, or contact Ross (anytime) on 027 222 0388 or by emailling: ross@revivelandscaping. co.nz. If you do not reach him immediately, he will call you back. They provide value for money and will be on the job when they say they will.

Autumn is garden makeover time Autumn is a good time for working in the garden whether starting from scratch or changing one that is established. If planning to shift trees or shrubs to a new spot, start wrenching these for moving. This involves digging around and gradually cutting the roots so the plant will develop feeder roots that will help it re-establish and minimise the shock for the plant when moved in June or July. How easily plants can be moved depends on their size and species. Some curl up their toes if shifted so seeking the assistance of a landscape professional can be helpful when changing or laying out a garden. With different tree and shrub species reaching varying widths and height, selecting the right place for each plant ensures maximum effect is gained and that mature species are not lost. “Having that touch of maturity in your garden gives it the ‘wow’ factor,” advises landscape designer, Sharon Crofts who operates Sharon Crofts Landscaping. “Larger and taller vegetation add to the aesthetics of a landscape design. When coupled with new construction work, the revamped garden has a finished and established look which is very satisfying.”

Sharon is a professional who has over 25 years’ experience in horticulture and landscaping. She can advise people who have established gardens that are in need of a garden makeover, giving them a new lease of life. She will suggest landscape ideas, suitable plants for various positions, draw up a new landscape plan for an existing or a new garden, and advise where suitable plant stock can be sourced. Sharon also works with landscape contractors who may complete part or all of the labour and construction work for you. Garden renovations are seasonal with now a good time for this kind of work, to avoid it being carried out in the mud and wet of winter. With the consistent building activity in Selwyn, landscaping contractors are busy so it is a good idea to think ahead. This will allow time for your landscape plan to be drawn up and finalised so the contractors can be on site when needed. Sharon also says that with more moisture in the air due to cooler autumn evenings and dewy mornings, conditions are conducive to growing grass so it is a good time to feed the lawn and seed a new lawn.

Garden renovations are seasonal with now a good time for this kind of work, to avoid it being carried out in the mud and wet of winter.

With the hotter months now over, there is less stress on plants and with nurseries having sales it is a good time for planting so plants have time to get established before spring when our garden looks its best as plants put on a show, making it a wonderful time to get outside and enjoy

the emerging warmer weather. Sharon can be contacted on 329 6229 or 0274 311 558 or by email: s-crofts@ xtra.co.nz and you can check out her website at: www.sharoncrofts.co.nz. She will do her best to work in with your availability.

Fonterra general manager, GCC for Anchor Food Professionals, Alastair Bruce said: “To meet evolving customer needs and preferences, the Anchor Food Professionals team works closely with our customers and partners to develop new innovative dairy products and business solutions – key to helping the Middle East foodservice industry meet growing demand for highquality dairy and capture growth in the business of food.” Mr Aon said Fonterra was delighted to receive the Gulfood award for its new stand, noting that it was a great accomplishment to win a top award the first time that Fonterra has had a standalone presence at the event, after 40 years’ partnering with Middle East and African food and beverage manufacturers. “Gulfood offers us a springboard for increasing trade opportunities in the region by showcasing Fonterra’s ‘New Zealand advantage’ – our market-leading, grass-fed dairy expertise and commitment to food safety and quality.” New Zealand’s Minister for Primary Industries Nathan Guy attended Gulfood 2017, along with a number of other New Zealand companies, signalling the importance of the region to New Zealand.

Fonterra has picked up a top innovation award at the Gulfood Innovation Awards for its trade stand at the world’s largest food show in Dubai earlier this month. The Gulfood Innovation Awards acknowledge new and improved innovations and technologies being adopted by the 5000 international food, beverage and hospitality exhibitors at the event. Fonterra’s stand was shared by NZMP, Fonterra’s dairy ingredients business and Anchor Food Professionals, Fonterra’s foodservice brand. Fonterra general manager Middle East for NZMP, Santiago Aon said: “We have developed some inventive ways of bringing the Fonterra experience alive for visitors to the stand, such as our Fonterra virtual reality experience. “By slipping on a headset, delegates can immerse themselves in a 360° virtual Fonterra world, following the journey of New Zealand dairy from its origin on the farm through to the shipping of NZMP ingredients to overseas markets.” NZMP has developed the virtual reality film to offer its customers a unique way to experience the production of dairy ingredients without actually being there. Mr Aon said that NZMP has been quick to use the cutting-edge technology, which is only just entering the mainstream as a communications tool, to bring the Fonterra dairy story to life. “We are always keen to use new technology to expand the way we connect with our customers and enable them to see for themselves how NZMP transforms farmers’ milk into world-class dairy products for customers around the globe. “The NZMP virtual reality experience offers customers deeper insights into the origins of the products they buy from us and helps to bring our customers closer to our farmers.” This inventive approach is also reflected in NZMP’s Virtual Store where customers can create a virtual product to meet their specifications by selecting certain ingredients, packaging styles and label images.

Still time to plant winter vegetables AUTUMN IS a great time for catching up on garden chores and to plan and plant before winter arrives. For vegetable lovers, if you haven’t started already then get in quick and sow your autumn/ winter vegetable crops. First, prepare the soil and add in manure. Also, ensure you keep young plants protected from slugs and snails. If you are not planting in your vege garden, don’t leave the beds empty. Sow a “green manure or cover crop” to add nutrients into the soil and protect beds. Sow green crops directly. Once grown, dig them back into the soil and leave to break down for six to eight weeks before planting. Alternatively, “blanket cover” beds by applying a thick layer of mulch, autumn leaves, or wood chip. Summer herb gardens

are coming to an end as many perennial herbs start flowering and then produce seed in autumn. This does not mean you cannot have a winter herb garden, however, you may need to plant fresh specimens at this time of year. Cut back herbs like mint, sage, rosemary and thyme to promote new fresh growth. Keep planting bulbs. There are many different varieties available to give variations in height and colour in the garden or containers. Always label where the bulbs are in the garden so they are not damaged or accidently dug up when dormant over winter. 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 avoid-

ing puddling. A handy tip is to sow a mixture of grass seed as this provides a better all-year-round lawn. With existing lawns, fertiliser can be applied and watered in well. When irrigating your lawn, carry out this in the cooler part of the day to maximise water usage. Prune peach and nectarine trees that have finished cropping. Remove old wood and retain enough new seasons growth for next season’s fruit. It’s always a good idea to maintain tree height at 2m to 3m to allow for easier picking, and for netting if birds become a problem next season. If you are planning on adding trees to your garden this year, planting during autumn/early winter is ideal so your tree has enough time to establish a good root system before summer.

Beautiful blooms from gerberas Rachel Vogan says bright-faced gerberas offer more than ever before, with new breeds no longer restricted to indoor living only YEARS AGO, gerberas were predominantly grown inside as they were deemed to be a little temperamental and challenging to grow outdoors. Years of breeding has seen the development of new types that have been bred specifically to counter this flaw and flourish especially well in pots. Yahoo, I say. It now means you can easily grow your own cut flowers at home. Gerberas are often a first choice in bouquets and a popular choice for brides on the Big Day. The flowers come in a rainbow of colours with true blue and ebony black seeming to be the only omissions at the moment, although that could easily change with all the breeding being undertaken. In the shops you will find two main brands of outdoor patio gerberas – Garvinea and Sweet series. Garvinea were bred to flower over a longer period and are about half the size of the large florist’s gerberas. The colour range is amazing and flowers themselves very eye-catching as they produce so many flower stems per plant. With a compact growth habit they are definite patio and tub option, especially if you want to

create a wow factor. These flowers pick well, too, although it always seems sad not to leave them outside strutting their stuff, especially if they are planted in your outdoor living areas. They are true perennials, meaning they don’t die after one season. Hailing from South Africa, they prefer a free-draining soil rather than anything too wet or heavy. Protect from harder frosts, as anything below -5 deg C is too cold for them. If they are planted in tubs, move the tubs closer to the house or even indoors over winter. New this season are those in the Sweet series, which have all the same attributes as Garvineas, but offer much larger blooms. One I am going to hunt down is ‘Sweet Surprise’ with its layers of pale lavender petals. This colour appeals to those who enjoy tones of blue and violet in the garden or on the patio. Another newcomer is ‘Sweet Memories’, which boasts an array of pretty pastel-pink outer petals that contrast beautifully with the creamywhite centres. This one is sure to quickly become a favourite with flower lovers.

VIVID: Sweet Memories (above). This is one you can grow in the garden or pots and tubs. (Right Gerbera ‘Kermit’ is a new florist-only variety, ask or order it by name. It’s a real character; Gerberas can last for a good 10 days to a fortnight when used in floral arrangements.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Mazda MX-5 offers Farm life has thrilling drive plenty to offer „„ By Ross Kiddie WHEN MAZDA first produced its MX-5 convertible, the concept was loosely based around the high performance Lotus Elan of the 60s. There’s no denying the success Mazda has had with the MX-5, every generation has been true to the original, and I don’t know anyone who isn’t smitten with the affordable sports car. That being the case, I was a little surprised to find that the latest generation model was designed in collaboration with the Fiat/Chrysler group. We are unlikely to see the Fiat equivalent here in New Zealand, it’s rumoured to be a left-hand-drive model only; but we will see Abarth versions here in right-hand-drive, and it will arrive with a 1.4litre turbocharged engine. Incidentally, Abarth is the performance arm of Fiat in Italy. I’m not here to praise the Abarth, I doubt that I’ll ever get a drive of that vehicle, but what I do know is that Mazda is determined not to lose grip on the popularity of MX-5, nor its market share, and have launched it here in four variations to cater for all driving tastes. In simple terms, there is a 1.5-litre manual model, a 2-litre manual or automatic, and a 2-litre convertible hardtop. I’ve driven all but the hardtop, and have come to appreciate what Mazda have done with the MX-5, it is still the fun, beautifully balanced sports car which has a chassis and suspension that can only be described as delightful. This evaluation focuses on the 2-litre manual, and it sits in the market at $46,995. $40,995 will get you into the 1.5litre manual, automatic transmission on the 2-litre adds $1500. Effectively, the engine is the same, but for bore and stroke differences which determine cubic capacity. The 2-litre model pumps out 118kW and 200Nm against 96kW and 150Nm, and if you add in its weight of just over 1000kg the power-to-weight balance is definitely biased towards performance. When you fire up the Mazda MX-5 you know you are in for a thrilling ride; the engine is raspy

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

Residential Investment Properties Renting out a home or investment property has become more complex with more legislative and insurer requirements and the potential for issues that were once never a factor. Insurance companies have certain requirements for rental properties so from the outset, inform your insurer that the property will be rented. Take out landlord’s house and chattels cover then read your policy and contact your insurance company if you have a concern, to avoid the potential for a claim not to be paid out. Insurers often want to be informed when a house is vacant for a period of time and require landlords to carry out regular inspections to ensure the property is being looked after. Record inspections showing dates and any problems, along with how these were addressed. Landlords have responsibilities in relation to the law as well. The Residential Tenancy Act requires tenanted properties to have operable smoke alarms and insulation will be compulsory in all rentals from 1 July 2019. Smoke alarms must be in place and operational. If a new house or it has never had smoke alarms, long-life photoelectric alarms with a battery life of at least eight years or hardwired in smoke alarms must be fitted. Batteries must be replaced in existing alarms as per the manufacturer’s dates, and A long-life when the photoelectric alarm. alarm expires

or stops working, it must be replaced with a photoelectric or hardwired alarm. There are also stipulations in relation to the number of smoke alarms for a rental and the positioning of these. Tenants also have a responsibility not to remove or disarm a smoke alarm and to replace batteries in older systems when needed or inform their landlord/property manager that a smoke alarm is not working in other cases. Failing to comply with the law, could lead to a fine of up to $4,000 for landlords and up to $3,000 for tenants. Another concern for landlords that has been raised in the media in recent times is drug use and in particular the effects of ‘P’ on a property. Many buyers of properties previously rented, are now requesting that a drug test is undertaken before the sale is confirmed. It is therefore a good idea to include a clause in the Tenancy Agreement to allow for the property to be drug tested from time to time. Not all ma and pa investors who manage their own rentals find it easy. They may not carry out quarterly property checks or find it embarrassing inspecting the house when tenants are living there. They may avoid bringing up issues which could adversely affect the property and its ultimate value, or forget to check that rent payments are made on time. For those who want an investment property but not the hassle a professional property manager would be contracted. They will find tenants, carry out property checks to ensure the property is being looked after, and monitor rent payments, issuing notice to tenants if needed and overseeing repairs and maintenance of the property when required.

Insurers require regular property inspections.

Insurers often want to be informed when a house is vacant for a period of time.
