Public to get say on draft Annual Plan

Golden girl Maia wins five „„ By Tom Doudney A 15-YEAR-OLD Rolleston runner has won five gold medals and beaten her own Canterbury record running at under 18 level at the New Zealand Track and Field Championships. Maia Broughton, who had beaten her coach Bev Peterson’s 44-year-old under 16 Canterbury 200m record in December, broke the same record again on her way to glory in Hamilton this month. Broughton won gold in the 100m, 200m and 400m individual races as well as two team golds as part of the Canterbury 4 x 100m and 4 x 400m relay teams. As there were no age grades below under 18 level at the event, Broughton, who only turned 15 last month, was running against competitors of various ages including some aged 16 and 17. Her new Canterbury 200m record was 24.75 seconds, beating the 24.99 she set in December. Peterson said Broughton’s results were incredible. “She’s got another two years in that [under 18] grade,” Peterson said. “I knew she could do it but I never let her know because I didn’t want the pressure to build up on her. “She gives 110 per cent all the time and all her hard work is really paying off.” Broughton said she was happy to have done so well. “I wasn’t expecting to go there and win five gold medals,” she said. Broughton will represent Lincoln High School at the South Island Secondary Schools Championships in Dunedin on Saturday and Sunday.

„„ By Tom Doudney A HEALTH hub in Rolleston, district-wide rating for stormwater and plans for an extension to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre are among the key proposals in the draft Annual Plan. The 2017-2018 draft Annual Plan was approved for consultation at last week’s district council meeting. The average rates rise per ratepayer would be 4.5 per cent, slightly above the level forecast in the 2015-2025 Long Term Plan. Actual rating changes would vary by area, ranging from a 4.7 per cent rates reduction for a residential property in Leeston to a 12.3 per cent increase for a rural West Melton property. The general rate would increase by six per cent to fund a range of services including roading improvements. A $60 targeted rate for road maintenance, referred to as “temporary” when it was introduced in 2014, would be retained. •Read more page 4

Tuesday March 28 2017 FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK

IT IS a bit of feast of sports in this edition of Selwyn Times, starting on page 1 with Rolleston golden girl Maia Broughton. You may remember the article in December about Broughton and her coach Bev Peterson? Broughton beat her coach’s 44-year-old running-record then. This time around, she has beaten her own record. Well done Maia, all that hard training has paid off. Over on page 13, it is not such good news for Lincoln rugby. For the first time in 11 seasons they’ve lost the Murray Cooper Shield. Southbridge are now the new holders. Congrats lads. Finally, the district council’s draft Annual Plan will be out for consultation on Monday. An extension to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre is one of the projects indicated, a good move considering all the post-earthquake movement out to the area. – Shelley Robinson

Population boom continues to drive Rolleston developments RESOURCE CONSENTS for 986 new sections in Rolleston were issued last year in areas being developed under the Selwyn Housing Accord as the town’s growth continues to skyrocket. Development is under way on the initial stages of the South Faringdon subdivision. The accord, which aims to improve land availability and affordability, was signed by the district council and Building and Housing Minister Nick Smith in December 2015. It allows for the staged development of 113ha of land in south-east Rolleston for residential housing. The areas to be developed are the South Faringdon subdivision on the corner of East Maddisons Rd and Selwyn Rd, incorporating Lemonwood Grove School, and the Geddes/Dryden Trust block on the corner of SpringstonRolleston Rd and Selwyn Rd. Overall, 1381 new homes are expected to be developed in the two special housing areas created under the accord. The 986 sections, for which resource consent was granted last year,

PROGRESS: Development is under way at the South Faringdon special housing area, near Lemonwood Grove School. will accommodate 1184 homes. Designating special housing areas enables a more streamlined consenting process to be followed, while providing the district council with controls over urban design. Mayor Sam Broughton said the number of sections consented showed Rolleston was still seeing strong growth. “Signing [the accord] has meant we have been able to see this development happen,” Mr Broughton said. District council chief execu-

tive David Ward said providing an adequate supply of housing in the district helped keep homes affordable and provided the public with competition and a choice of housing options. Ten per cent of all homes within the special housing areas will be ‘affordable housing’ – meaning smaller, more compact options, suitable for older people, young professionals or small families. Currently, smaller housing options are limited in Selwyn,

but demand for this type of housing is expected to increase as the population ages. The remaining unsealed section of East Maddisons Rd to Selwyn Rd will be sealed. This will be funded by developers, as part of work on the South Faringdon subdivision progresses. New sewerage lines will also be laid to service this area, with some of this work already completed. A new reservoir and bores are also planned to provide added capacity for Rolleston’s growing population.

Proposal to extend Selwyn Aquatic Centre

„„ By Tom Doudney THERE ARE plans to extend the Selwyn Aquatic Centre which is struggling to meet demand. The district council is proposing to spend $250,000 on designing and planning the extension, which was identified as a priority in its recent aquatic facilities plan review. Draft Annual Plan consultation documents state that demand for pool space is high and “the centre simply cannot accommodate all users.” It currently has 1550 swim school students enrolled in weekly swim lessons and a waiting list of more than 100 students each term. Demand for lane and leisure swimming has also been strong. Given these issues, an additional pool is being considered, which would be a multi-use pool, able to be used for swim classes, aquafitness and casual swimmers. Additional space is also needed for a dedicated learn to swim office. If supported, a budget for the construction of this would be

included in the Long Term Plan 2018-2028, with the project being scheduled to be completed early on in the plan. Last year, then-mayor Kelvin Coe suggested a choice would need to be made between extending the aquatic centre or building a new pool in Lincoln. However, when asked if the

inclusion of the aquatic centre in the draft Annual Plan meant Lincoln wouldn’t be getting a pool, district council chief executive David Ward said the aquatic facilities review was still being considered and it would be “premature” to comment on whether any other actions might be identified.

Rates changes in the draft Annual Report •From page 1 Other proposals include increased funding for footpath extensions and extending library and service centre hours in the evenings and weekend, including opening on Sunday for all except Leeston. Consultation will open on Monday and closes on May 3. Rates changes In addition to the standardised rate for stormwater, the main changes proposed are: •A six per cent increase in the general rate and the uniform annual general charge to fund a range of services, including improvements to the road network. The general rate makes up 20 to 30 per cent of total rates for most residential properties, and 50 to 70 per cent of total rates for most rural properties. •An increase in the Malvern Ward community board rate from $32 to $40 to fund the full cost of running the board. •An increase in the district water rate from $370 to $391 for partially metered supplies and from $214 to $226 for fully metered supplies, with

the water usage charge increasing from 43 to 44 cents per cubic metre. •An increase to the Arthur’s Pass and Castle Hill refuse rates from $79 to $121, and introduction of the recycling targeted rate of $63 to reflect the new service being introduced in these locations. •Increases to water race targeted rates (Ellesmere 10 per cent, Malvern 20 per cent and Paparua 20 per cent) to reflect the cost of maintaining the water race network. •An increase to the library rate from $180 to $190 to help fund longer opening hours for a trial period. •Some increases to reserve and community centre targeted rates, with bigger increases for Tai Tapu (from $179 to $310) and West Melton (from $115 to $286) to help pay for the new community facilities that will soon be built. •A number of rates will stay the same as in 2016/17, including wastewater, refuse, Canterbury Museum and swimming pool rates.

Health hub suggested in draft Annual Plan „„ By Tom Doudney A PROPOSED Rolleston health hub would improve access to healthcare and social services for Selwyn residents, the district council says. The facility, proposed in the draft Annual Plan, would be built by the district council on land it owns near its Rolleston headquarters. It would be independently managed with space leased to a combination of health professionals, not-for-profit groups and social service agencies. The building would also contain commercial office space. District council chief executive David Ward said the timing and cost of the hub would be considered once it was known if there was community support for it. In September, Selwyn Times revealed that the district council and Canterbury District Health Board had been discussing a possible 24-hour medical facility in Rolleston, which could see doctors at Christchurch Hospital giving instructions to nurses via videolink. When asked if this was what

was proposed with the health hub, Mr Ward said the mix of health and community services provided at the facility and what services they could offer would not be confirmed for some time. However, district councillor Grant Miller, who has been heavily involved in discussions over future healthcare provision in Selwyn, said building the hub would be a first step towards the 24-hour facility. “If we want [health service providers] to come to Rolleston, we need to have somewhere for them to practice,” Cr Miller said.

“If we don’t do it, no one will.” Consultation documents for the draft Annual Plan noted that research in 2014 and 2016 showed that, although Selwyn residents generally had good access to health care, there were some gaps in service provision with people having to travel to Christchurch for some services. The project would be funded from existing commercial property budgets and considered an investment by the district council, expected to provide a financial return within about three years.

District-wide stormwater charges a possibility „„ By Tom Doudney ALL SELWYN residents connected to a district council stormwater scheme will pay a standard $85 rate in the next financial year, if changes in the draft Annual Plan are implemented. The district council is proposing to make stormwater a district-wide, rather than a targeted, rate. Water and wastewater rates have already been district-wide since 2015. The change is proposed as the level of service provided to each community is similar from one township to another, but a number of schemes are facing increased operational costs. The change would be a win for communities, such as Leeston, which would otherwise have to pay an annual stormwater rate of $278, Lake Coleridge which would pay $220 and Hororata which would pay $200. Those with most to lose from the proposal include Edendale and Springfield, which would otherwise pay an annual rate of $25, and Kirwee, which would pay $35. Overall, district-wide rating

WITH THE FLOW: Stormwater would become a district-wide, rather than targeted, rate under a new proposal. Water and wastewater rates have been district-wide since 2015.

would see 14 communities, including Rolleston and Darfield, paying a higher rate next year than they would under a targeted system. Eight communities, including Lincoln and West Melton, would pay a lower rate under districtwide rating.

Leeston may get gallery „„ By Tom Doudney LEESTON COULD become the latest Selwyn town to get its own community art gallery. Local artist Averil Southward is seeking $30,000 from the district council to lease the former Ellesmere Drapery building, on High St, which has been vacant for about a year. Mrs Southward, who is secretary-treasurer of the Ellesmere Art Group, said the funding would cover the first year’s lease as well as other costs like rates and insurance. The gallery would be run by volunteers in a similar way to the Selwyn Gallery in Darfield and Lincoln’s Down by the Jeff Bland Liffey Gallery, where she volunteers. “If we can run it how I think it could be run, I think we would be able to get national artists interested in having exhibitions in the gallery as well,” Mrs Southward said. “I have managed to pull together some well-known local artists and hopefully we can get

some funding and get it up and going.” Art tutoring classes could be run from the building, she said. “It couldn’t be in a better spot for an art gallery, it’s at the centre of Leeston but would cater for the whole Ellesmere district. The plan is to make it a tourist destination where we could have buses hopefully driving through between Christchurch and Ashburton.” Mrs Southward had her fingers crossed that no one would lease the building in the mean time.

“If they do, my proposal will fall over.” She had letters of support from Ellesmere College, Leeston Consolidated School, the Leeston Business Association and the Leeston Community Committee. It was expected the gallery would still need financial support from the district council after the first year but not as much. By that point it would be producing some financial return. Mrs Southward said the gallery would provide a place for younger up and coming local

artists to display their work for a more reasonable commission than was available in Christchurch. District councillor Jeff Bland, who holds the arts portfolio, said a staff report on the proposal was due to come to the next district council meeting on April 12. In general, he was supportive of the Ellesmere ward having a gallery. “The amount of money we spend on sports and community centres is great but I think we have really missed the ball a little bit on arts, history and culture,” Cr Bland said.

„„ By Tom Doudney FUNDING TO progress work on three new community centres and strengthen three old halls has been approved by the district council. On Wednesday, it approved $3.2 million in extra funding for new community centres planned for West Melton and Tai Tapu and under construction in Dunsandel, bringing its total contribution for the projects to $4.8 million. The district council usually only provides 10 per cent funding with the community responsible for raising the rest. However, this brings its contribution up to 34 per cent for West Melton, 26 per cent for Tai Tapu and 23 per cent for Dunsandel. Steering committees around the district have been finding it difficult to raise money for new facilities, which had raised the possibility of large targeted rates rises for residents. The district council also approved a $1.3 million work programme for earthquake strengthening the Sheffield, Springston and Ladbrooks halls by the end of the year. All three buildings were damaged and temporarily closed after the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes, before reopening.

Your Local Views Aquifers not unlimited resources Hamish Rennie is associate professor of planning at Lincoln University’s department of environmental management and a resident of Irwell, downstream from Coes Ford. He writes in reaction to Environment Canterbury looking into measures to restrict, suspend or revoke water take consents in the Selwyn River catchment I WAS pleased to read that ECan is looking into the possibility of a temporary water shortage order and hope the recent rain does not lead to it not following this through. To be meaningful, such an order should not be left until the irrigation season has ended, as was stated by one person at the zone committee meeting. However, the Selwyn Times story (March 14) says that an order can only be applied when a serious water shortage ‘could not have been predicted’. I can find no such requirement in the

The surface takes can not be the cause of the current problem. It is the takes that are sucking the aquifers dry that need to be reviewed. It is blatantly obvious, aquifers are not unlimited resources.

Resource Management Act. But even if this was the case, if the current serious water shortage in the Selwyn could have been predicted, why was it not? If it was predicted, why was no action taken to prevent it? Fundamentally either the water management models used are wrong or the decisionmakers considered it publicly and environmentally acceptable to allow the Selwyn to dry up as far down river as Coes Ford – if that was indeed the case, that was a serious error of judgement. ECan’s suggestion that it would also review water take consents and would initially target surface water takes from

the river would be a lengthy process and misidentifies the problem. In the lower reaches, like Coes Ford, the river is fed during the summer by aquifers. All surface takes from the river stop when the flow falls to preset, ecologically defined low levels. That should mean that the river stays at a reasonable ecological and perhaps swimmable flow rate and height at Coes Ford even allowing for climate fluctuations. The same does not apply for aquifers. As the level of ground water drops, those who take water simply go deeper and the groundwater level falls further. The flow has been so low that surface takes have essentially not been allowed from the Selwyn since November 2015. That already affects those farmers who rely on such water takes. They have had to adapt.

Environment Canterbury science director Stefanie Rixecker responds: We welcome the views of Hamish Rennie and everyone else in the community as we look to address the serious issues with the Selwyn River in general and Coes Ford in particular. With this in mind we are presenting the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee with a range of intervention options for them to consider. Hamish mentions one of these. This will happen at the next zone committee meeting at the district council’s Rolleston headquarters on April 4, from 1pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend and hear the pros and cons for themselves. There will also be an opportunity for them to air their views.

Coral Bramley, of Darfield, writes about the debate over a sewerage system for Darfield - I have been greatly upset by an item in the Selwyn Times about a sewerage scheme for Darfield, which seems to come up in reports every so often. My late husband and I built a house in Darfield in 1997 and we had a concrete septic tank which was basic but effective. We had it cleaned yearly and it never caused any problems in 20 years. I have just had a new house built in Darfield and it cost around $22,000 for an oversized, very complicated, expensive, electricity dependent septic system to be installed. I was also asked to agree to the suppliers coming twice a year to inspect and maintain it and pay for it to be emptied at a significant cost to me. Why such an expensive system should need six-monthly checking is another worry. To hear now that it is possible that this system will become obsolete is a great worry to me and other folk who have built in new subdivisions in Darfield in the last 18 months. If at some future time Darfield does have to have a sewerage system I hope people who have recently spent a huge amount on a system will be given at least 15 years before they have to pay out thousands of dollars more to join the new system. •HAVE YOUR SAY: If you have a view on a local issue, send it to tom.doudney@starmedia.kiwi

Social housing plan abandoned „„ By Tom Doudney THE SALVATION Army has abandoned plans to provide social housing and an administration office on the site of the Blue Gum Lodge Motel in Weedons. The project was to have provided accommodation for people on the Ministry of Social Development’s social housing register as well as an office for its post-prison reintegration service. Salvation Army social housing national director Greg Foster (left) said the decision not to go through with those plans had been “reluctantly” made because of the time and cost required to complete the development. “We would have been required to go through a series of rezoning steps with the Selwyn District Council, in order to use the property for housing,” Mr Foster said. “This would have meant that we would have had to engage planners, and lawyers in the process. The proposed lease

CLOSED: The Salvation Army has scrapped plans to use the former Blue Gum Lodge Motel for social housing.

[with the NZ Transport Agency] was for one year renewable, but given it was not a guaranteed long-term lease, with the other factors we felt at that point it was not worth the cost.” Mr Foster said the funds involved in this project could be better used pursuing other long-term accommodation opportunities in the area, although there was nothing definite in the pipeline at this stage. “We are continuing to look at

ways we can increase the support the Salvation Army offers to people facing homelessness in the Canterbury region,” he said. The motel closed in August 2015 because some of its land was needed for the Southern Motorway extension. It was bought by the New Zealand Transport Authority which was in discussions with the Salvation Army on a contract to lease the property.

Several Weedons residents had been concerned that introducing social housing into the area might lead to higher crime and lower property values but Mr Foster said this was not a significant factor in the Salvation Army pulling out. “We are confident that had we been given the option to address people’s questions or concerns directly then people would have been comfortable with our plans.”

Discussion draws big audience A CROWD of 325 people packed Lincoln University’s Stewart Building lecture theatre on Thursday for the annual Earth Hour discussion, which this year focused on water. Mediated by Kim Hill, the panellists were Lincoln University professor of environmental management Ken Hughey, Plant and Food Research science group leader Brent Clothier, Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce chief executive Peter Townsend and Bryan Jenkins of the Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management. Mayor Sam Broughton was the MC. The consensus from the panellists was that it was time to get real in addressing our problems, operate with real integrity and justify what we do with water. There was also broad agreement that the issue was more about how we farm than what we farm, the application of technology and how we put an appropriate value on water. The event was co-ordinated by the Lincoln Envirotown Trust. LET member Sue Jarvis said the presence of such a large audience demonstrated that communities were starting to buy into the issues that need to be addressed.

WALK THROUGH: Prime Minister Bill English gets a tour of the classrooms at Lemonwood Grove School.

Schools celebrate with special guests TWO SELWYN schools recently celebrated different kinds of openings. Rolleston’s Lemonwood Grove School welcomed Prime Minister Bill English for its official opening ceremony. The school opened for lessons at the start of year, but waited until this month to stage it’s official opening ceremony, which was also attended by Mayor Sam Broughton and Selwyn MP Amy

Adams. The school currently has about 100 pupils enrolled but is built to provide for up to 400. A future second stage of building will take capacity up to 750 pupils. Also this month, West Melton School celebrated the opening of two new learning spaces. Mr Broughton, Ms Adams and district councillor Mark Alexander attended this ceremony.

The club, which was formed 28 years ago, also recently handed out its own community service awards to two of its members. The Malvern Jones Fellowship went to Eileen Yates and the Lloyd Morgan Honoured Recognition award went to Elva Smith. As part of the international centennial celebrations, the club will be holding a Ladies of Selwyn event in Lincoln on July 28. It will involve entertainment and information along with guest speaker Lesley Elliot from the Sophie Elliot Foundation. For more information, call Alison Benefield on 347 8618.

Midget car driver ensures trophy remains in Selwyn

SPORTS

THE SOUTH Island Midget Car Championship trophy remains in a Selwyn driver’s hands after Lincoln’s Jeremy Webb won the event at Ruapuna Speedway on Saturday. Seven time and defending champion, Southbridge’s Dave Kerr, had a wretched night, being caught up in two accidents, which halted his effort to become the driver with the most wins in the championship’s 55-year history. Webb won the 20-lap final by a handsome margin, leading Dunedin’s Gavin Wilkie and Southbridge’s Tom Lumsden across the line. Kerr failed to finish the race. Rolleston’s Glen Durie was also favoured to do well, but like Kerr his efforts were thwarted by being caught up in on-track incidents. Durie will get a shot at redemption on Friday night at Ruapuna, when the final round of the Southern Midget series is held. He currently sits in second place on the points table, just three points behind series leader Gary Chadwick, of Rangiora.

Lincoln University starts club competitions in strong position SUCCESS ON the rugby field is being followed by a growth in player numbers at the Lincoln University club. The club have claimed the men’s metro division 1 title for the last two years and last year also won the premier colts title. Former division 1 side coach John Haggart, who has moved into a rugby director role at the club this season, said new lights had been installed on another training field and there had been an increase in former players returning to the club. “In our colts grade this year, we have large numbers and will be looking to run three teams, with one at premier colts level and the other two at colts level,” Haggart said. The women’s side had also experienced an increase in player numbers. Haggart’s move has led to Dave Perrin taking the reins of the top men’s side, supported by former All Black Ben Blair. Bevan Sissons, who was the successful premier colts coach, will move up to be an assistant coach. Harry Schuman will run the division 2 side for the first time this year, but will be supported by experienced coaches and university stalwarts Noel Hickland

and George Haddow. Head coach of the premier colts will be Dave Robertson who has a lot of experience having coached the Burnside seniors to the division 1 title in previous years. His assistant coach will be Phil Whyman. Alan Lawson and Jamie

Rauwhiri will coach the other colts teams. Shawn Fibbes and Jessica McMorrow will coach the women’s team. The season starts on Saturday with a gala day at Linwood in Christchurch. “Once again, we are looking to be a strong force in all competitions,” Haggart said.

SELWYN SWIM Club head coach Ben Close has been selected to work with the New Zealand team attending the Australian age group swimming championships in Brisbane next month. His selection follows hard on the heels of the club’s successful outing at the New Zealand division 2 championships in Rotorua earlier this month. Selwyn came fourth out of 101 teams at the meet, which was for up-and-coming swimmers aged between 12 and 18. It was the top South Island club, winning two gold medals, along with seven silver and 10 bronze. Medallists included Alex Nash, Dylan Booysens, Amelia Prusas and George Kral and the boys and girls’ relay teams. Close, who has not previously served in a national coaching

role, was selected based on the International Swimming Federation points ranking for swimmers and a scholarship from the New Zealand Swim Coaches and Teachers Association for developing upcoming coaches. “I’m blown away by this opportunity and very much looking forward to learning and sharing ideas with the other selected coaches, including the team head coach Gary Hurring,” Close said. He said the fourth place finish at the division 2 championships was a major achievement, as it was only the second time the club had swimmers qualify to attend since it was founded in 2014. The Australian age group championships will be held on April 16-23. Selwyn Swim Club member Hannah Bates, 14, will be part of the team.

Leeston women and Tai Tapu men have winning weekend on green „„ By Karolyn Boon LEESTON’S WOMEN’S players have completed a clean sweep of all five Ellesmere Bowls Champion of Champions events. The triples team, consisting of Polly Middleton (lead), Jenny Dalton and Jennifer Heslop (skip), won the final event of the season in Southbridge on Sunday. Beating the Lincoln team, skipped by Val Arnold, was always going to be tough as they had good form going into the game after beating a strong Diamond Harbour side in the semi-final. Every time Lincoln looked like building a good head, Leeston`s second, Jenny Dalton, drew a bowl in to spoil it. Heslop was able to draw shots as well as play some good run shots at times when needed to keep Lincoln out of the game and win 18-14. Late patron Hilda Lowery, who passed away this month, would have been pleased as punch with her small club’s efforts in the season and would have enjoyed spreading the word. The Tai Tapu men’s team of Keith Gillanders, John Kennedy and Dave Whitelaw were far too strong for their opposition. They beat Lincoln soundly in the

semi-final and then the home town team from Southbridge, skipped by Chris Love, in the final. After seven ends, Southbridge led 5-4, but it was Tai Tapu which scored a five on the next end to go ahead 9-5. Tai Tapu

then managed to keep Southbridge scoreless for the next five ends. A solid team effort then saw them pull ahead to 15-5. No matter how hard Southbridge tried it was the skip, Whitelaw, who was doing the damage.

His accurate driving when they were down and his ability to draw a final shot ended up the difference between the two teams. The final score was 17-9 after only 16 ends. •More sport, page 17

Halswell take out two-day cricket title A COME from behind win has secured the senior A two-day cricket title for Halswell. Playing Sumner at Halswell Domain, the hosts were on the back foot having finished their first innings 40 runs behind. However, good bowling and outstanding fielding meant Sumner could only muster 190 in their second innings. Matt Parr and Geoff Barclay each took four wickets. Halswell were set a target of 230 from 57 overs to win the game and competition. They got off to a good start, not losing their first wicket until the score was 40. Mike Worsfold was promoted to No 3 and batted well. Matt McClintock (44) was second man out when the score was 90, bringing Blair Cotching to the crease. He scored 43 and, at 160/3 with 21 overs to get 70 runs, Halswell were in a good position. Parr joined Worsfold and bullied the Sumner bowlers to all parts of the ground. Parr scored 42 from 27 balls, including five towering sixes. Halswell reached 230/6 with 10 overs remaining. Worsfold finished on 56 not out and played a vital role in the win.

NZSS Futsal

Lincoln High School’s Senior and Junior Boys Futsal teams leave for Wellington tomorrow to attend the New Zealand Secondary Schools Futsal Championships from Wednesday 29 to Friday 31 March. Futsal is a modified form of football played with five players per side played typically indoors. Many of the top world-class footballers played Futsal in their youth and credit it with supporting their footballing development including Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi. The Lincoln High School Senior Boys’ (Year 11-13) team has a number of fresh faces, but are still a force to be reckoned with. At the Mainland Secondary Schools Championship, the team finished a credible 4th place after losing the 3rd/4th Playoff on penalties. In pool play Lincoln drew with St Thomas’s who ended up winning the tournament. The team will look to improve upon the 10th placing the team achieved in 2016. The junior boys’ (Year 9-10) team has continued to improve throughout the season. They were placed 6th at the Mainland Championships, which had some very strong competition. At the time of writing, the team were unbeaten in the School Sport Canterbury Wednesday competition having dominated most of the teams in this grade. The junior team will look to improve on their 17th placing they achieved in 2016. The players and management from both teams would sincerely like to thank all sponsors and supporters in making this trip possible.

Fundamental Movement Spectacular Selwyn’s 1st year 0-2 FM Spectacular was indeed spectacular!! Ten schools descended upon Foster Park in Rolleston on Thursday 23 March for the first, of what is hoped to become a regular Fundamental Movement Spectacular. They were treated to nine different activities organised by the Selwyn Sports Trust Activators and run by Lincoln University event management students. All activities were designed to provide all students with an opportunity to use and develop their fundamental movement skills. The activities included locomotor, stability and manipulative skills and were designed in a way that is easy to replicate in school settings. NICE SURPRISE: The Glentunnel School cricket team and coach Hamish Wright (top centre) were happy when Jonathan Ahlseld and Mark Leith from ANZ dropped in with some new cricket gear for the side. ​

Weedons cricketer and school win new gear in Dream Big campaign A NEWLY formed Glentunnel School cricket team and another young cricketer from Weedons celebrated wins off the field recently when they received surprise deliveries – some new gear. The school team and Weedons Tigers player Marshall Johnston (right), 8, received the gear after each made applications to the ANZ Dream Deliveries programme, which was set up to fulfil young cricketers’ dreams across New Zealand. In both cases, the applicants didn’t know they had been successful until ANZ representatives showed up with the gear. Glentunnel School has experienced a surge in keen young cricket players since deciding that after about three years with no junior cricket team at the school, it was time to rectify the situation. As a result, the Glentunnel Miners were formed, named after the coal mining history of the Glentunnel, Coalgate and Whitecliffs areas. The team, coached by parent Hamish Wright, joined the Canterbury country cricket junior competition this year. With about 14 children aged between five and eight currently playing, the sport’s popularity is back on the rise with other children and parents keen to jump on board next summer. Teacher Liz Carston said it was great to have the new gear. The team owed a lot to Mr Wright, who had shown heaps of enthusiasm, and it

A huge thank you must go to the Lincoln University students for their enthusiasm and willingness, and to the schools, teachers and parents for accompanying their children.

had been a good first season. “They have improved heaps, won a few games and lost a few games, but definitely their skill level has developed well over the season,” Mrs Carston said. Marshall applied for his new gear to help him fulfil his dream of one day becoming a Black Cap. Applications to ANZ’s dream deliveries programme are still open and can be made online at www.anz.co.nz/dreambig

Hockey turf opening at Foster Park A NEW hockey turf will be opened at Rolleston’s Foster Park tomorrow. The turf will be used by the Waikirikiri Sport club, which will initially focus mainly on hockey.

It was a hugely successful day with lots of actions and plenty of smiles, laughter and enjoyment. A sign of things to come for the Selwyn District as the Activators continue to sprinkle their magic across the physical activity opportunities and experiences in our schools and their communities.

Club registrations for year 5-8 players will be taken at 3.45pm on the day, followed by year 5-6 and year 7-8 games at 4pm. At 4.30pm, there will be a ‘have a go drills

and skills’ session for children of all ages, before an exhibition match at 5.15pm. Finally, speeches and the official opening of the turf will take place at 5.45pm.

The Koru Games are back again in 2017. Put the date in your calendar now, 19 – 21 September. More information to come soon with sporting competition options and venues currently being confirmed.

Either way its 20k around school buses As a rural district with a young population, school buses are common around Selwyn. School buses take children to schools in both rural areas and townships, with many children also travelling to Christchurch for school. If you’re on the road in the morning or after school, its important to watch out for school buses and also slow down near children waiting for buses or travelling to and from school. Legally, motorists are required to slow down to 20km per hour on both sides of the road if a bus has a school bus sign and has stopped on the roadside. Selwyn School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler and Constable Rick Groen, School Community Officer, visited Greendale School recently to talk to the school students about bus safety and provide training for older students about bus monitor duties.

New hockey turf at Foster Park A new hockey turf will be officially opened this week at Foster Park in Rolleston. The turf will provide a half sized hockey field with lighting allowing it to be used day and night. It is large enough to host junior competitions and practice and also senior training. Senior hockey matches will be played in Christchurch. Two new hockey turfs are planned at Nga¯ Puna Wai sports facility in Halswell.

On the roads this week Road repairs are planned on Minchins and Leaches Roads, with stop/ go traffic controls operating. Road resurfacing is planned on Telegraph Road (between Courtenay and Bealey Roads and Ross and Cardale Streets), with stop/go traffic controls operating. Rehabilitation work (granular overlay) is being done on Bealey Road (between Warrens and Essendon Roads) with traffic controls operating. Four crossing points for pedestrians are being installed on Brookside Road. A sewer line to connect Prebbleton to Rolleston is being installed on sections of Hamptons, Shands and Selwyn Road to the intersection of Springston Rolleston Road. There may be a reduction down to one lane on these roads with traffic signals at the work site.

Road/Rail closures

The new field at Foster Park has enabled a new sports club to form for the eastern Selwyn area called Waikirikiri Sports Club. The club will use the turf, and Rolleston College may also use the field in the future.

Curraghs Road Rail crossing will be closed from Friday 31 March to Wednesday 5 April to allow KiwiRail to complete a crossing upgrade. The road will be closed between Main South Road (SH1) and Jones Road with detours in place.

The official opening of the hockey field will take place on Wednesday 29 March from 4-6pm. Hockey club members will be playing on the fields from 4-5.15pm, with an exhibition match at 5.15 and the official opening at 5.45pm. Everyone is welcome to join this event and see the new field. If you’re interested in joining Waikirikiri Sports Club please visit www.waikirikirisport.club.

Stoneleigh Drive is 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.

Funding is available to host street or community events to help people in your community get to know each other.

Backyard critters

CLOSE COUSINS: Damselflies are related to dragonflies but if you look closely you will notice some differences.

Damselflies are magnificent fliers 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 DAMSELFLIES ARE closely related to dragonflies in shape and aquatic relationship, but differ in a number of ways. Dragonflies rest with their wings spread, are fast fliers, have a thick body and their eyes are generally close together. In

contrast, damselflies fold their wings over their body when resting, are slower fliers, have a narrow body, and their eyes are widely separated. The redcoat damselfly (Xanthocnemis zealandica) is the most common of the six New Zealand native damselfly species. The 30-35mm long common redcoat are ubiquitous from alpine to sea level and found around waterways (which they require to complete their lifecycle). Like the dragonfly, they are magnificent fliers and their acute eyesight enables them to capture prey in flight. Adult prey include small moths, aphids, caddisflies, craneflies, wasps and bugs. Mating damselflies are often seen flying tandem and torpedo-shaped eggs are laid on floating vegetation. Eggs only take three to four weeks to hatch, however, the larval stage can take up to two years depending on the water temperature. Larvae live under water

on vegetation and eat small fly larva, worms, caddis and stonefly larvae. They reach a length of 15-18mm and metamorphose to adults between August and March. Hitch-hiking parasitic water mites are often seen attached to the abdomen of adults. These cling-ons suck fluid from hosts and use damselflies to disperse from one water source to another. •There are now 10 days until Lincoln’s Bioblitz event. For details, checkout https://lincolnbioblitz. eventbrite.co.nz •Specimens collected by Mike Bowie will be logged online at http:// naturewatch.org.nz. This is a place where you can share what you see in nature, set up a citizen-science monitoring project and learn about our natural history. It allows you to load photos of your specimen and you can ask for identification by experts.

Thank you for the music The aftermath of the Christchurch earthquakes saw some inspiring initiatives sprout from the city’s grass roots and nowhere more so than in the arts. One such project, the Pop Up Concert Series, took music and performance art right into the heart of our communities.

This artist-led project was organised and promoted by Christchurch musician and producer Isabella Miller Bell. A concert at a tennis club in Redcliffs was the start of a six-year long commitment to bringing live performance to the public. Known professionally as Izzy Miller Bell Aka Ma Bell, the Scottish-born performer can best be described as urban-folk-bluesjazz singer-songwriter. A story-teller and eloquent interpreter of songs, Izzy has shared her own passion for performance, music and the stage both through her own performances and by bringing together a group of people who have taken her initial

around Canterbury and the South. Over thirty shows have been performed in our quake-hit regions, enabling locals to connect socially and hear the work of local musicians and performance artists. Selwyn has particularly benefited from the project, with three pop-up events between 2014 and 2016 including a stirring, emotional Celtic blessing at last year’s Hororata Highland Games’ opening ceremony. Now, Ma Bell is wrapping up the first stage of the initiative with a series of Canterbury

shows throughout 2017, starting with a cabaret on Saturday 1st April at the Nicholas Hall in the Lincoln Event Centre, followed by shows in Akaroa and Ohoka, finishing the year back in Christchurch where it all began. Izzy says she “hopes to continue to produce future shows but for now the Pop Up project has fulfilled a vision and purpose and it’s time for a break.” Celebrate the project’s success with her and her guests at the Cabaret of Life - make a night of it by reserving a table, bringing your own refreshments but be warned, not recommended for the faint-hearted or squeamish.

Rolleston College - founding a legacy for Selwyn District The newly constructed Rolleston College opened its doors to its first 220 year nine students in February this year. These students will nurture the foundations of a school that will swell to five times its current size over the next five years. A new cohort of year nine students will start each year, lifting the roll to a likely 1,100 students by 2022. Rolleston College is located in the heart of one of New Zealand’s fastest growing districts so space has been set aside for more buildings to meet an expected roll of up to 1,800 students. Design and building of the school was undertaken by an innovative public-private partnership that included the Hawkins Group. The founding students at Selwyn’s newest high school have been enjoying a leading-edge learning environment, with state-of-the-art workshops that include a car repair workshop, a theatre, large gymnasium, dance studio, science laboratories, a special needs unit, four tennis courts and several sport fields. At the peak of the project, Hawkins had up to 300 staff on site. “Our company worked hard to minimize disruption to the Rolleston community during construction,” says Hawkins’ Project Manager, Ivan Hatton. “With houses on every boundary of the construction site, our aim was to minimize dust and noise disruption as well as ensure we had community input throughout the process.” Hawkins kept neighbours up-to-date with regular newsletters, advising of construction milestones and inviting feedback and when the foundations were poured in October 2015, watering trucks were used to dampen down and avoid any dust. These trucks operated seven days a week, including days when no work was carried out on site. Fast-growing grass seed was also sown on the outer areas of the grounds to temporarily cover the soil. Rolleston College’s flexible learning spaces are attuned to the principles of an innovative learning environment; the design and construction fitting with modern learning environments being

adopted in primary and secondary schools around New Zealand. The school has been built for the Ministry of Education by the Future Schools Partners (FSP) consortium and the Ministry of Education. FSP has a $298 million contract to fund, design and maintain four schools: Rolleston College, Christchurch’s Haeata Community Campus, Auckland’s Ormiston Junior College, and the new Wakatipu High School in Queenstown, which will open in February 2018. The three FSP schools built to date have created a substantial physical footprint. Ormiston College caters for 1,130 years seven to ten students while Haeata Community Campus has just under 1,000 years one to thirteen students. Wakatipu is expected to start with around 1,200 students and capacity for up to 1,800 over time. Under the FSP, the consortium partners maintain the schools for twenty five years then the buildings are handed back to the Ministry of Education. “The FSP consortium has used high quality materials and modern design to deliver a lasting legacy for school communities,” says Hawkins Group Chief Executive, Geoff Hunt.

Take care of roses in autumn Hayden Foulds has some tips for the rosarians among us AUTUMN IS probably the worst season for rose lovers. The excitement of the first flush of blooms is a distant memory yet it is still too early to think about winter pruning. A combination of neglect over the holiday season and the weather takes its toll, and often roses are looking worse for wear as we enter autumn. Certainly this season has been challenging for rose growers around the country with lots of wind and rain and cooler temperatures than normal pretty much summing up the season. There are a few things you can do in autumn to get the best out of your roses and also prepare for winter time.

CHALLENGE: A tea rose with pink petals, there are things you can do at this time of year to ensure full colour next time they bloom.

DEADHEADING Continue to deadhead spent blooms until the end of March then leave so colourful hips can form. If petals blowing around the garden bothers you, these can be removed leaving the base of the flower to form the hip. Hips are often overlooked in rose growing but provide colour and interest at a time when there is little else happening in the garden. If you have summer trimmed (usually done late January to early February), then continue to maintain moisture levels to keep the plants growing. Your reward will be a beautiful

RICH: Blooms like this Hot Chocolate are smaller, but have more vibrant colours and better substance.

display of blooms in March and April. The autumn blooms tend to be smaller than those in spring but have more intense colouring and better substance. Summer trimming – for those who don’t know – is when all blooms and buds are removed from the plant, an application of fertiliser is provided and the plants are provided with sufficient water in order to get them growing again. The water and fertiliser are crucial as without them, growth will be stunted. Summer

trimming is also a great way to try to get roses into bloom for a certain date although it is a bit of a lottery with moisture, temperature and nutrition all playing their part. ASSESSING PERFORMANCE Autumn is a great time to assess the performance of rose varieties in your garden. If the plant is in its first season, don’t be too hasty to discard – often plants need a year to properly settle in anyway. •Turn to page 29

gardening without guesswork Question:

I would like to know when does Blackberry plant start fruiting? I planted one this year the growth is great but as yet no flowers or fruit. Should I let this plant continue to go unpruned, or should I cut it back. It looks very healthy.

Answer: Blackberries, like most of the bramble berries (raspberries, boysenberries and the like) all fruit on the growth that they made the previous season. The vigorous growth that the newly planted blackberry has made will produce flowers and fruit on that growth this coming spring. Don’t prune it this season. You will also need to train it along supporting wires, or trellis for additional affect. You would expect the plant to take 2-3 years to reach full production. The growth that has fruited on established plants is pruned out after fruiting to encourage the new growth that will produce the fruit the next season. for more information, check out our website: www.intelligro.co.nz or visit our facebook page: www.facebook.com/igro.co.nz Thanks to Verlie for her question - New questions to be received by Tuesday 4th April

Time to prepare a new area •From page 27 This is especially so for climbing roses, which often don’t start producing the long growths characteristic of them until the second year. Sometimes moving a rose can give it a new lease of life. May is a good month to move roses as usually there is plenty of moisture about. If you are wishing to plant a rose back where you have removed another one, take out about a wheelbarrow full of soil and swap with that from another part of the garden and incorporate some compost as well. Be careful to avoid areas that have grown potatoes, dahlias or tomatoes as verticillium wilt can be a problem. If you are looking to plant some new roses, now is the time to order from garden centres and specialist nurseries, either by mail order or online. The new and popular varieties, along with those varieties grown on a standard, often sell out the quickest. PREPARING NEW AREAS The autumn months are a great time for preparing new areas for roses. Dig over the area you

are wanting to plant and fork in some compost or well-rotted animal manure. Add some lime or dolomite lime and a sprinkling of blood and bone and incorporate into the soil. Do not add any other fertiliser. Autumn is also a good time to check your soil pH, especially if your roses don’t seem to be doing as well as they should. The scale measures the acidity of the soil and ranges from 1: acidic, to 14: alkaline. Roses require a pH of between 6 and 6.9, with 6.5 being the optimum level. If the pH is higher or lower than this, nutrients in the soil are ‘locked up’ and cannot be used by the plant. If your roses are not thriving, then consider getting a soil test done to determine the pH of your garden and from that,

corrective action can be taken to get the pH within range. CLEAN UP April and May are good months to have a good tidy up around your roses. Hygiene is important to prevent diseases, such as black spot and rust, from overwintering and infecting new growth in the spring, so all fallen leaves and debris needs to be picked up and disposed of in the rubbish. Don’t add to the compost. It can be a bit timeconsuming, but is well worth it. Black spot has been more prevalent with the wetter summer weather this year, but other diseases such as rust and powdery mildew are also about, along with insect pests like aphids.

MAINTENANCE: Continue to deadhead spent blooms until the end of March.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

The red car – a 30 model a tudor hotrod When Harry Orpwood was seven years old, he saw a hot rod. With that the seed was sown for a lifetime of tinkering with and owning cars. Harry built his ‘red car’ from the body shell of a 30 Model A Tudor and a mix of second hand parts from Ford vehicles produced over the years. These he found at swap meets. “I’d seen a cool car and thought it might be fun to build an older hot rod,” says Harry. Starting with the body shell, Harry built a chassis then channelled the body over this and chopped the roof. “Model A Tudors originally had soft fabric tops so I welded in a steel frame and put a Valiant Safari station wagon roof over top, then fitted a Ford 390 big block motor which runs six carburettors, has a C6 transmission and runs a 9” Ford differential,” explains Harry. The instrument panel is out of a 1949 Ford Single Spinner while the seat was partly made up and modified from the rear seat

of a Chrysler Alpine. The wheels are Ford customline rims that have been widened and the car has a 32 Ford Grill. Harry estimates the build time at five to six months and a few dollars, all justified given the fun he has had with the red car which he has taken to car meets in New Zealand and the United States. He has attended the Beach Hop in the North Island, where the car was in the top five car selection and awarded the best Nostalgia Car at the show. It has also been placed in the top ten at a Muscle Car Madness Show at Rangiora. When a friend moved to Sacramento, space in his container allowed Harry the opportunity to send his hot rod over to America with him flying there a few times when he took the car to the Good Guys Pleasanton event, Hot August Nights, Paso Robles Classic Car Show and Bonnerville Speed Week. “I didn’t race the car at Bonnerville though

Jones Road Auto

I did drive down the eight mile track,” advises Harry. Harry was borne with the gene to play around with cars. He loves working on them, finding old cars and parts at swap meets then restoring and especially creating something a bit different. He has built more than twelve vehicles for racing or hot rodding and once raced classic cars. Just as well his wife, whom he met in his mid-teens, is also an enthusiast. The red car was shipped back to New Zealand in 2008 and Harry still drives it. “It needs a bit more loving and work, as the chrome around the exhaust, front axle and lower body work, has corroded from salt picked up on the Bonnerville Salt Flats that I could never completely clean off,” says Harry. “I enjoy driving the red car. It has the x factor. Many people comment on what a cool looking car it is.”

Leading edge technology in motor vehicle spray painting As late model vehicles have been painted with waterborne products in special factory conditions, any touch-ups or body work needs to be carried out using the same products. Hollands Collision Centre in Rolleston has just installed a new spray booth that was manufactured in Italy and is especially designed for spraying waterborne paints in a safe, clean, purpose built unit. In addition, a new tint room (also from Italy) is soon to be up and running, allowing effective waterborne paint application at room temperature, no matter what time of year. “If using a waterborne paint, you need a really good booth so the moisture is extracted out of the paint and the painted surface is dried in an effective way,” explains Cameron, owner of Hollands Collision Centre. “With our new unit, the vehicle is blow dried in the booth rather than heater dried.” This new technology brings Hollands Collision up to date with current international re-finishing technology, meaning a superior and professional finish is achieved on all late model vehicles whether a car, four-wheel drive or light commercial. “We cater for small to larger vehicles whether a truck, caravan, horse float or any type of farm equipment,” reminds Cameron. “We also have a large sandblasting operation on site.” Hollands Collision’s operation has recently expanded with a second building across the road, giving them more space to turn

vehicles around faster, meeting the growing demand for their services. There is also a new team member. Rod Hurst, a well-known and highly skilled insurance assessor has many years’ experience in the insurance industry. He can assist clients with their insurance enquiries and provide quotations for insurance companies; eliminating the need to physically visit an insurer if your vehicle is damaged in an accident. A claim can be made over the telephone and your vehicle dropped into Hollands Collision Centre who will take care of the rest. As Hollands Collision Centre are preferred repairers for virtually all major insurance companies you do not need to take your vehicle into the city for repairs so talk to Cameron and his team first. They have all the equipment and expertise to get your car safely back on the road. Repairs completed by Hollands Collision Centre come with their own personal guarantee, backed by the Collision Repair Association, assuring you that the work has been properly carried out. They also have vehicles for use while your own is in the workshop being repaired. With five office staff, seven panel beaters, four painters and a full-time car detailer, Hollands Collision Centre is the largest panel and paint shop in the Selwyn district. “I like to keep up with current and future demand so that we’re always meeting the needs of the people of Rolleston and further afield,” explains Cameron.

Hollands Collision Centre is located at 826 Jones Road in Rolleston; phone 03 347 8703.

30 hours FREE ECE Not only do children get a wonderful educational start at Giggles and Scribbles, now it’s even easier on the pocket. All children three years or older can now learn and play at the childcare centre for up to 30 hours per week for free*. “We understand that for some families money can be tight, at Giggles and Scribbles we believe in equality of education giving all children more access to high quality early childhood education” says Giggles and Scribbles director and owner Sonya Cookeson. “The centre has been open for over a year now and the wonderful support that we have had from the local community means that we are now in a position to give a little bit back”. “We know how hard it can be for working families and It’s always been important to me that all children have equal access to a high quality early childhood education.” At Giggles and Scribbles they believe that their job is not just to prepare children intellectually for school but also, and perhaps more importantly, to develop them emotionally and socially. They aim to work alongside families to help develop and instil solid moral values that will prepare children to be kind, thoughtful and decent human beings.

problems. At Giggles and Scribbles they incorporate learning into a fun and interactive programme to keep children’s attention and make learning memorable. They also facilitate a highly acclaimed Transition to School programme for children over 4 years of age. This programme is run in house by primary trained teachers. We need critical thinkers - children who can think outside of the box. At Giggles and Scribbles they believe it’s important to provide a balance of equipment and resources that challenge the thought process of children. Some of the equipment and resources have a specific and intentional outcome. Children gain a sense of achievement and accomplishment from completing the activity, progressing their learning forward. n If your family would like to learn more about Giggles and Scribbles or their FREE 30 hour ECE offer, then contact Giggles and Scribbles on 03 325 3350. *Some terms and conditions apply to the 30 hours free ECE offer, please contact the centre for details.

Giggles and Scribbles philosophy focuses on providing children with the skills and tools to play with and alongside other children; to be able to make friends and retain them, valuing the enrichment of friendships. They believe in the value of teaching children to be kind, empathic and to have the ability to self-regulate their emotions. Teachers focus on grace and courtesy, role modelling, respect and good manners. They weave values such as courage, perseverance, independence and inclusiveness into their curriculum, believing them to be as equally important as providing a varied, stimulating and well prepared learning environment. Great emphasis is placed on grace and courtesy lessons, as well as providing children with the tools to be able to learn important preparation for school skills such as learning the alphabet or solving basic math
