More rain needed say farmers

Burglars target sports clubs

„„ By Tom Doudney and Georgia O’Connor-Harding SELWYN’S farmers, environmentalists and those who get their water from a private well will be united in at least one way this winter – they will be hoping for a lot more rain. Three years of dry winter weather on the Canterbury Plains have left groundwater levels extremely low and been a big contributor to the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River and some streams drying up during the summer. Coes Ford, a popular swimming spot until recently, was completely dry in late February, although recent rainfall means the water there is now flowing again. ECan’s chief scientist Dr Tim Davie said that if Selwyn experienced a fourth dry winter in a row the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River would likely go dry at Coes Ford for most of the summer. “Other lowland streams flowing into Te Waihora would similarly go dry,” Dr Davie said. •Turn to page 5

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK Today is a day of remembrance of those who we have lost through war. Many of you will have been at ceremonies this morning and they are always very special. For me the most emotive moment is seeing the former soldiers at the front of the parade. What they must have seen, gone through, is too horrific for many of us to even fathom. We thank you, and all those soldiers who did not come home, for your service. Changing tack, I hope that some of you managed to see the amazing light display on show in our sky on Saturday and Sunday night. The Aurora Australis was simply incredible, check out the photos on page 7. And of course it is school holiday time (page 8) at the moment if you manage to capture a photo of children having fun send it through to our new Selwyn Times reporter georgia.oconnor@starmedia.kiwi.

Alcohol, golf clubs targeted „„ By Andrew King ALCOHOL AND sports gear were targeted in two burglaries of sports clubs in the Selwyn district. The Tai Tapu Golf Club was broken into recently, allegedly by two men, and eight sets of hire clubs were taken from a shed. Club administrator Steve Piper said it was incredibly frustrating. “We had 12 sets, now we have four,” he Chris said. Thornley “They were not very clever. They had no masks, and no gloves and were captured on our CCTV cameras.” It was not the only club to be hit. The Waihora Rugby Club which is right beside the golf club was also broken into twice in two nights. Due to a break-in about five months ago the club had moved the position where it stored its alcohol. That area was broken into

last month twice, with nothing taken but a big mess was left. “They basically broke in and threw clothes and gear around, broke a few things then left,” president Chris Thornley said. “They need to pull their heads in [the offenders]. We are a community-based rugby club trying to give kids something to do on the weekend.” He said instead of tearing around at night destroying things, why not join up and play a sport.

“They could burn off some of that excess energy,” he said. Community services manager for Papanui Senior Sergeant Stephan McDaniel said offenders had broken into clubrooms in Papanui and Hornby as well as Lincoln. “Police are currently investigating the burglaries to four separate clubrooms that have occurred over the last month,” Senior Sergeant McDaniel said.

Tourist levy would help DOC Students achieving in NCEA Amy Adams

Arthur’s Pass Wildlife Trust chairman Pete Neale writes about introducing a tourist entry levy to support the Department of Conservation

The Arthur’s Pass Wildlife Trust has been in operation since 2010. It is a group of keen volunteers who set up and maintain around 800 predator traps in the vicinity of Arthur’s Pass Village. Our funding comes from a number of donation boxes located in the area. For bigger projects we have recently received funding and assistance from Environment Canterbury, the Department of Conservation and Rata Foundation. By reducing stoat and rat numbers in the area, we have successfully helped increase local populations of roroa, kea, whio, titipounamu and several other native birds as we try and establish Predator Free NZ by 2050. DOC also has a large “predator team” operating in the area, in particular working with the critically endangered kakariki. The Kea Conservation Trust is working hard to educate locals and tourists on how best to admire kea without causing them harm through too much human interaction. That’s where the good news ends and “the rant” starts.

DOC is seriously under-funded in a lot of areas. After the wet summer that the majority of the country got, a foot bridge on the Arthur’s Pass walking track was deemed unsafe and has to be closed after rain events until it can be inspected again. This has also led to the closing of the most popular short walk in Arthur’s Pass, to the Devils Punchbowl Waterfall. Arthur’s Pass has often been described as the “gem of the Selwyn district”, so to have the two most popular walks closed over Easter and the school holidays has disappointed many travellers. Even though fixing these assets should be given top priority, no extra funding is available at the regional office, so things have to wait until local staff can fit the project in to their already hectic schedules. One way to solve this is to introduce a tourist entry levy. If everyone who enters New Zealand paid $10 and it went to DOC, we would see a huge improvement in conservation efforts and in the morale of DOC staff. Remember this option when September 23 comes around and vote accordingly.

EDUCATION IS one of the most important investments a Government can make. A strong education sees every generation of young Kiwis ready to succeed on the world stage. The final NCEA results for 2016 show just how well our students are achieving and how many more young people are able to tap into the opportunities that a good education offers. The hard work of teachers and students is paying off, with achievement up across the board. Nationally, achievement in year 11 NCEA level one is 75.5 per cent, up from 62.5 per cent in 2008. Year 12 NCEA level two achievement is 78.4 per cent, up 12 per cent since 2008. Year 13 NCEA level three achievement is 64.5 per cent, up from 53.4 per cent in 2008, and achievement of the University Entrance Award is up 0.6 per cent to 49.2 per cent. Here in Selwyn, year 12 NCEA level two achievement has risen from 80.6 per cent in 2008 to 87 per cent last year. Back in 2008, Māori and Pasifika students were struggling, with almost half leaving school without NCEA level two. As a Government, we found this unacceptable which is why we made a commitment to lifting achievement through targeted investment to support our hard-working and dedicated teachers. This investment has made a difference as the latest figures show. The most outstanding of the 2016 results show that year 12 NCEA level two achievement by Māori students has increased from

Selwyn MP

51.6 per cent in 2008 to 74.9 per cent, and achievement by Pasifika students has increased from 50.5 per cent to 79.5 per cent. This success is spread across the country. I am proud to be part of a Government that prioritises education and wants to see our young New Zealanders get ahead This Government will continue a 21stcentury approach to ensure that every young New Zealander is supported in the best way possible to achieve their potential.

Traditional barbers keeping Selwyn sharp 100 per cent awesome is how Barber Chris describes the day he gave away the first 100 hair cuts at his new South Point barber shop Hair 4 Men. “It was a great way to get to meet some members of our local community and to let them see what we do,” he said. “The reaction was terrific and we’ve had some great feedback about the service and how pleased clients were with the end result.” The new barber shop in Faringdon is an establishment which will enable the men and boys of the Selwyn District a place to make sure they are looking sharp whether it be with a hair cut or a gents wet shave . Owner Chirs has extended his success in the industry with this new establishment adding to his businesses already operating in Ashburton and Geraldine. Chris has been in the industry for more than 36 years so knows a thing or two about the latest trends in beards and the sharp new styles men around the world are sporting. In fact Chris was recently placed in the top four barbers in New Zealand at a recent Barber Craft event. There has also been another apprentice starting this week.

“We keep an eye on the latest designs that are happening in America and Europe so you know you are getting the latest clip, cut or grooming.” “We’re not hairdressers doing men’s cuts, we’re fully qualified barbers who are at the top of their game giving the males of this area a place they can come which is just for them.” Here you will be able to appreciate the full services of a traditional barber – where service is key and where the cuts are….well cutting edge. You will also find retro is cool with authentic barbers’ chairs imported from Europe and the tractor’s chair for kids which will surely prove a popular place for the littler chaps to sit. Hair 4 Men are also suppliers of haircare products including beard oils and waxes, a good range of other items to keep you well groomed. So if you want to ensure you have the quality of a traditional barber’s cut then don’t hesitate to see the team at Hair 4 Men, open Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm and 8am to 4pm on Saturday.

Rates concern for new facility

Farmers want more rain

„„ By Tom Doudney SOME HORORATA residents are concerned that a possible new community centre being discussed could push up rates. Go Hororata is a strategic focus group made up of the Hororata Community Trust, the Hororata Reserve Management Committee, the Hororata Citizens Committee, along with the local playcentre, tennis club, Scout group and rifle group. It was formed to create a shared vision of how the area’s public spaces, including the domain and the hall, should be developed in future. The possibility of building a new community centre in the domain to replace the current hall, which is over the road from the domain, has been discussed as one possible idea. The existing hall would need to be renovated if it was retained where it was. If the new community centre was built instead, elements of the existing hall could be retained and used in the new building, with the old site being sold to raise funds. Some Hororata residents

•From page 1 “Groundwater levels would remain extremely low. For farmers and other water users who rely on shallow wells they [would be] likely to experience difficulties, and may have dry wells for much of the summer.” He cautioned that it was not yet known if it would be another dry winter or not. Irrigation New Zealand chief executive Andrew Curtis said a steady consistent rain that soaks into the groundwater is what is needed. “If we were to get another winter where we have similar sorts of rainfalls in the last few years yes life is going to get quite challenging,” he said.  He said the rain recently is recharging the aquifers and the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River is now flowing from “top to bottom”.  Federated Farmers Mid Canterbury Farmers provincial president Michael Salvesen said he was uncertain as to how much rainfall the Canterbury Plains will need but more was required. “It has been wetter a lot more so far this year than it has been in the last three years . . . groundwater levels have recovered a bit and they are probably still recovering,” he said.

PUBLIC SPACE: The possibility of building a new community centre in the Hororata Domain is being discussed. ​

told the Selwyn Times they had concerns around any potential rates rises associated with a new facility. One resident, who declined to be named, said residents had been surveyed in 2013 on whether they wanted a new community centre built to replace the old hall, and the idea had idea had received low support.

“A village of 120 people who don’t use the hall, shouldn’t have to pay for [an expensive] facility,” the resident said. Hororata Citizens Committee member Stuart Oliver said the community had a range of views on the matter. “I’ve got my views, I’d like to leave it where it is, but then other people have got different ideas. We’ve got to look towards

Public to decide where speed indicator may go „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A NEW survey asking the public where they would like to see a roadside speed indicator in West Melton is under way. The West Melton Residents’ Association is planning to purchase its second speed indicator device and rotate it throughout the town to slow traffic.  Association member Bruce Russell said due to the population growth post-earthquake, the area had more children crossing roads. According to Statistics New Zealand, West Melton’s population had increased from about 5500 to more than 7000 between 2006 and 2013. “We are just getting too much speed around the districts. Particularly on Halkett Rd and past West Melton School,” Mr Russell said. He said people needed to be reminded of their speed and residents have indicated they would like to see more devices in the area.  Survey participants will be required to rate each road listed to determine poor and good locations.

Kerry Higgins Our People Farm to Beehive and back to farm Hororata’s Kerry Higgins is a national finalist in the New Zealand Dairy Industry Awards’ manager of the year category. He spoke to Tom Doudney about what’s involved with managing a large herd and his former job working security at Parliament Do you live in Hororata or just work there? Yes, I live on the farm. How big is it? We are 528ha with a milking platform of 433ha with two sheds on that milking 1340 cows. Is 1340 quite a large herd for a manager to handle or is that quite normal? I guess it’s relatively large. We’ve got two sheds and I’ve got two herd managers underneath me looking after each shed, so I’m a bit more of a hands-on operational manager overseeing them and still getting amongst it with the day to day jobs. With a herd of 1340 do you recognise individual cows or is it just impossible with that many? A lot of people probably don’t realise that cows actually do have quite a personality for themselves so you definitely have animals that you recognise. You are milking them twice a day every day for 300 days of the year so you do get to see them a lot and get to know their traits. They all have their funny old things, some of them need a scratch behind the ear before they come into the shed and others are always the slow ones that are going to be at the back of the pack. What does your day to day job entail? For myself it’s probably team management, making sure that the daily jobs are done and the cows are fully fed and nice and happy. Stockmanship – making sure there are no lame or sick

animals. Then, general farm duties – I’m halfway through a pasture walk at the moment just gauging how much feed we have got for the cows and whether we need to be putting in supplement.

Right now it’s managing my time through to the end of the season because myself and my wife Anita are actually moving on to a contract milking position in Culverden at the end of the season (June 1). I am trying to manage my responsibilities here on the farm for the next manager coming in and also my responsibilities of going on to nationals [in the Dairy Industry Awards] and then also organising myself for next season. How long have you been working on this particular farm and what has led you to make the move to the next one in Culverden? This is my fourth season on this farm, my third as a manager. I started out six years ago with Anna and Sam O’Reilly near

Backyard critters

Orb web spiders hide on your house 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 GARDEN orb web spiders are very conspicuous because of their geometric webs that glisten with morning dew or sun. The species is common outside of the house, either hiding in the corner during the day or in the middle of the web at night. The orb web spider is a 10 to 12mm spider from Australia that probably got blown to New Zealand in a natural process called ballooning, where spiderlings attached to fine silk can disperse hundreds of kilometres. The spider’s scientific

CAMOUFLAGE: The orb web spider’s variable colour helps it blend in to its environment. ​

name, Eriphora pustulosa, is in reference to the five humps on its back, two larger in the middle and three at the rear, which helps to identify it. The species is incredibly variable in colour which helps it blend in to its environment. When the web snares prey, the spider will immobilise it by wrapping silk around it. Egg sacs are initially brown but turn olive green over time and consist of a loose, wiry silk, often found

in the corner of windows or under eaves. •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.

Proposed rate changes

Longer hours

for libraries?

As part of our Annual Plan, we are now consulting on some key topics to help guide our activities for July 2017 to June 2018. Along with consultation on these topics and our work programme, we are also consulting on rates levels for 2017/18. The average rate increase is 4.5%, however the changes for individual properties will vary. The main factors affecting rates are: · changes to the general rate · a proposal to replace different township stormwater rates with a standard $85 rate in areas where the Council manages stormwater · an increase in the district water rate from $370 to $391 for partially metered supplies and from $214 to $226 for fully metered supplies · an increase to the Arthur’s Pass and Castle Hill refuse rates from $79 to $121, and introduction of a recycling targeted rate to reflect the new service to be provided at these locations · increases to water race targeted rates (Ellesmere 10%, Malvern 20% and Paparua 20%) to reflect the cost of maintaining the water race network · an increase to the Library Rate to fund a trial of longer opening hours · some increases to reserve and community centre targeted rates, with bigger increases for Tai Tapu and West Melton to help pay for new community facilities.

As part of our Annual Plan we are seeking your comments on whether local libraries should be open on Sundays and for longer in the early evening to make it easier for people to use library services. Currently, libraries are open on weekdays from 8.30am-5pm, with Lincoln and Rolleston offering late night opening on Thursdays until 7pm. Libraries are also open on Saturdays from 9.30am12.30pm. With the current opening times, some people find it difficult to visit local libraries. Council service centres are currently only available from 8.30am-5pm on weekdays. With changes to library opening hours proposed, extended hours for service centres at Darfield, Leeston and Lincoln are also proposed, with service centre functions available from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays (but not on Sundays). The extended hours will be trialled for 6 months and reviewed before a decision is made on whether to make the change permanent. Opening for extended hours will increase the running costs of libraries and require a $10 rate increase per property.

Visit a Magical Park Rolleston Reserve is coming to life with animated dinosaurs, kittens and alien invaders these school holidays. The reserve is the first park in Selwyn to become a ‘Magical Park’ where children are guided by an app that allows them to herd cats, see dinosaurs brought back to life, and witness what an alien invasion is like. “The app involves children in a number of fun tasks at parks including finding dinosaur eggs, and herding kittens which provides a great workout,” says Selwyn District Council Senior Events and Recreation Advisor Dave Tippett. “The app combines technology and physical activity in a free engaging activity for families to try out over the school holidays.” The ‘Magical Park’ app is designed for kids aged 6-11. It can be downloaded from Google Play or the ITunes App Store for free. It is compatible with iPhone 5+, iPad 3+, or android devices with a compass, gyroscope, accelerometer and GPS. The average playing time for kids using the app is 30-60 minutes and in this time kids typically cover between 700 metres and 2 kilometers. “Magical Park is being trialed at Rolleston Reserve and if it proves popular we will look at introducing it at some other parks across Selwyn,” says Mr Tippett. Signage is installed at Rolleston Reserve (by the skate area) with information on how to participate in Magical Park.

Sections of Weedons Ross Road between State Highway One and Jones Road, and Weedons Road between State Highway One and Levi Road are closed both ways to traffic. A closure will also be in place on Weedons Road from Main South Road through to Levi Road. The closures are to allow cables to be laid as part of the Christchurch Southern Motorway extension project. Detours will be clearly sign-posted.

Selling food? New laws affects you If you sell food – whether in a shop, online or from home – you need to know about changes to food safety laws which may affect you. Under the Food Act, you can sell food you make at home. But you need to make sure it’s safe and follow the same food safety rules as other businesses – which may involve being registered and getting checked. There are some exemptions in place for registrations – for example if food is sold for fundraising or if catering occurs for a single event then registration is not required. The new rules are designed to ensure that people can have confidence that the food they buy is safe. Illness from food contamination or improper storage or cooking can make people seriously ill.

Proposed rate changes

Longer hours

for libraries?

As part of our Annual Plan, we are now consulting on some key topics to help guide our activities for July 2017 to June 2018. Along with consultation on these topics and our work programme, we are also consulting on rates levels for 2017/18. The average rate increase is 4.5%, however the changes for individual properties will vary. The main factors affecting rates are: · changes to the general rate · a proposal to replace different township stormwater rates with a standard $85 rate in areas where the Council manages stormwater · an increase in the district water rate from $370 to $391 for partially metered supplies and from $214 to $226 for fully metered supplies · an increase to the Arthur’s Pass and Castle Hill refuse rates from $79 to $121, and introduction of a recycling targeted rate to reflect the new service to be provided at these locations · increases to water race targeted rates (Ellesmere 10%, Malvern 20% and Paparua 20%) to reflect the cost of maintaining the water race network · an increase to the Library Rate to fund a trial of longer opening hours · some increases to reserve and community centre targeted rates, with bigger increases for Tai Tapu and West Melton to help pay for new community facilities.

As part of our Annual Plan we are seeking your comments on whether local libraries should be open on Sundays and for longer in the early evening to make it easier for people to use library services. Currently, libraries are open on weekdays from 8.30am-5pm, with Lincoln and Rolleston offering late night opening on Thursdays until 7pm. Libraries are also open on Saturdays from 9.30am12.30pm. With the current opening times, some people find it difficult to visit local libraries. Council service centres are currently only available from 8.30am-5pm on weekdays. With changes to library opening hours proposed, extended hours for service centres at Darfield, Leeston and Lincoln are also proposed, with service centre functions available from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays (but not on Sundays). The extended hours will be trialled for 6 months and reviewed before a decision is made on whether to make the change permanent. Opening for extended hours will increase the running costs of libraries and require a $10 rate increase per property.

Proposed new opening times for libraries are: Monday & Tuesday

On the roads this week Road resurfacing will take place on Ayers, Woodward and Fuller Streets and Hudsons Road, with stop/ go traffic controls operating at all sites. Road levelling will take place on Coleridge Road, with priority give way controls operating. Footpath reconstruction work is planned on Torlesse Crescent in Darfield. From Monday 1 May until mid June, road widening will occur on Jones Road between Weedons Ross Road and the Lyttelton Port Company. The road will remain open, but may be reduced to one lane at times with traffic delays expected. Maddisons Road is suggested as an alternative route at peak times.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension From Wednesday 26 April, Waterholes Road (between 865 Waterholes Road and the intersection of Waterholes Road and Hamptons Road) will be closed to allow for some work in preparation for a motorway overbridge. The closure will be in place until late May, with detours in place.

Share your views on our Plan To find out more about our Annual Plan and make a submission please visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay. We also have a quick five minute survey open on the plan. Completed survey entries will go into a draw to win a $50 prezzy card. Both submissions and surveys are open until 3 May 2017.

Visit a Magical Park Rolleston Reserve is coming to life with animated dinosaurs, kittens and alien invaders these school holidays. The reserve is the first park in Selwyn to become a ‘Magical Park’ where children are guided by an app that allows them to herd cats, see dinosaurs brought back to life, and witness what an alien invasion is like. “The app involves children in a number of fun tasks at parks including finding dinosaur eggs, and herding kittens which provides a great workout,” says Selwyn District Council Senior Events and Recreation Advisor Dave Tippett. “The app combines technology and physical activity in a free engaging activity for families to try out over the school holidays.” The ‘Magical Park’ app is designed for kids aged 6-11. It can be downloaded from Google Play or the ITunes App Store for free. It is compatible with iPhone 5+, iPad 3+, or android devices with a compass, gyroscope, accelerometer and GPS. The average playing time for kids using the app is 30-60 minutes and in this time kids typically cover between 700 metres and 2 kilometers. “Magical Park is being trialed at Rolleston Reserve and if it proves popular we will look at introducing it at some other parks across Selwyn,” says Mr Tippett. Signage is installed at Rolleston Reserve (by the skate area) with information on how to participate in Magical Park.

Sections of Weedons Ross Road between State Highway One and Jones Road, and Weedons Road between State Highway One and Levi Road are closed both ways to traffic. A closure will also be in place on Weedons Road from Main South Road through to Levi Road. The closures are to allow cables to be laid as part of the Christchurch Southern Motorway extension project. Detours will be clearly sign-posted.

Selling food? New laws affects you If you sell food – whether in a shop, online or from home – you need to know about changes to food safety laws which may affect you. Under the Food Act, you can sell food you make at home. But you need to make sure it’s safe and follow the same food safety rules as other businesses – which may involve being registered and getting checked. There are some exemptions in place for registrations – for example if food is sold for fundraising or if catering occurs for a single event then registration is not required. The new rules are designed to ensure that people can have confidence that the food they buy is safe. Illness from food contamination or improper storage or cooking can make people seriously ill.

Te Whariki sponsor Lincoln Uni THE Lincoln University club has unveiled a new major sponsor as it chases the metro division 1 three-peat this season. Te Whariki, a 118ha subdivision in Lincoln, is backing the Rams, and the club will wear the name on their new jerseys. “With Te Whariki being on the doorstep of the township, it makes perfect sense for us to continue building

relationships within the community,” Te Whariki development manager Shannon Goldsmith said. Lincoln University Sport and Recreation Centre manager Peter Magson said Lincoln University rugby is proud of the association with Te Whariki and is grateful for the opportunity to develop and grow the young men and women who play rugby at the

university. “With a large increase in players, the relationship with Te Whariki is very timely,” Magson said. Goldsmith, a stalwart of Canterbury rugby, is looking forward to following the Ram’s successes. On Saturday Lincoln continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 58-12 win over Burnside.

Popular Colorado up for a challenge „„ By Ross Kiddie NEW ZEALAND has become quite the ute-buying nation. That doesn’t surprise me, Kiwis are following trends out of North America and Australia. In the last few years ute sales here have shot up to record levels. While it’s fair to say most buyers are choosing Ford and its Ranger, all manufactures which ply that part of the market are claiming success. None more so than Holden with its Colorado, it is selling hard on the heels of Ranger, a new model was launched last year and as I reported in these columns in November, it is a standout in terms of refinement and, of course, practicality. That evaluation focused on the mid-spec LTZ; five days with the range-topping Z71 has done nothing to alter my affection for the popular four-wheel-drive double cab. Clearly, the Z71 is aimed more towards the recreational buyer, it has decals, stripes, body kit and a level of specification which wouldn’t work for many industry roles. However, I found the deck cover functional and useful for low loads, I took a deck full of foliage to the green recycling

• Price – Holden Colorado Z71, $66,990 • Dimensions – Length, 5361mm; width, 1872mm; height, 1800mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, four-wheeldrive,2776cc, 147kW, 500Nm, six-speed automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 11sec • Fuel usage – 8.7l/100km

just 2000rpm it is a powerhouse, easily on a par with all of its competitors. Drive is harnessed through a six-speed automatic transmission. A manual is available, but it won’t compete with the auto in terms of sales figures. Shifts are smooth and the gearing is such that it provides relaxed motoring at highway speed along with the ratios needed for slow speed, off-the-seal travel. Backing up that theory is the fitment of a true low ratio transfer box, it is manipulated electronically by a console-mounted dial switch, at the driver’s command. It’s fair to say I didn’t take the

centre, to be able to pack it down and hold it secure with the fibreglass cover was simply brilliant. I also used that area to transport the cricket gear I use as year 4 coach, to have it locked secure when I was away from the vehicle was also another bonus. These tasks were no match for the Colorado’s 1000kg load capacity, but they did serve to prove how adaptable the modern ute has become, and if you add in a 3500kg tow rating the Colorado is right up there in terms of load carrying performance. At the other end sits a 2.8-litre, four-cylinder twin-camshaft turbocharged diesel engine. It is rated bay Holden at 147kW and with 500Nm of torque available at

Z71 off-road. When Holden launched the new series, it included a traction-challenging off-road excursion in North Canterbury. I felt I didn’t need to replicate that given all vehicles completed the undulating and muddy hill sections without drama. Instead, I spent most of my time with the Z71 at highway speed and my regular commute. In those conditions it seems more car-like that ute-like. Sure, there is a lot of bulk to manoeuvre in close confine situations, but it’s no worse than any other vehicle of its type. And if you take into account the number which are being sold, buyers quite obviously don’t rate that as a challenge. On the open road, the engine turns over slowly at 1550rpm

at 100km/h in top gear. At that speed it returns a 6.2-litre per 100km (46mpg) instantaneous fuel usage figure, that accounted for an 9.4l/100km (30mpg) average figure during my time with the ute. That correlates well with the 8.7l/100km (32mpg) figure Holden claims for a combined cycle average. Road and wind noise are both kept to a minimum, and the Colorado, as a series, imparts a smooth ride. Of course, it is better with a bit of weight in the back, but the reality is the loadbearing suspension is absorbent and the cab doesn’t jiggle unnecessarily on uneven surfaces. That’s an area where local research and development pays dividends. Holden Australia places a huge emphasis on developing vehicles for down under conditions and it certainly shows in Colorado. The ride is acceptable and the entire in-cabin experience is comfortable. I guess, it would need to be. The Z71 isn’t cheap at $66,990, but for that money you do get a lot of kit. Even though the Z71’s flashy bits disguise its traditional ute look, make no mistake, it is still the quintessential Colorado which has carved out a huge reputation as a tough, go-anywhere worker.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

A family of Triumphs Bob Humm grew up around old cars, forming an interest he passed onto his sons. This penchant is reflected in the three generation connection the family has had with the Vintage Car Club (beginning with Bob’s father). They also like classic cars, with Bob and son Graeme both owning Triumph 2.5’s. Bob and Esme purchased their 1977 Triumph after seeing it at a McLeans Island Swap Meet. “Bob was about to have his hip replaced and wanted a car that would be easier to get into than the sports car we had,” explains Esme. While they had never driven a Triumph, they thought it looked rather stylish. “The 2.5 was pretty smart in its day,” says Bob. “The interior was a poor man’s Rolls-Royce and with the independent rear suspension it’s easy to drive with no need to change gears all the time, to the point where you can often drive round a corner in the same gear.” The Triumph has a manual gearbox with an overdrive in third and fourth. This makes it more economical. It is also quieter with a relaxed comfortable drive though their road handling or cornering capabilities are not that of a newer car. Graeme who had a Jowett handed down to him by Bob, wanted a car that was less draughty in winter. He saw his 1974 Triumph 2.5 advertised in Nelson so flew up to see it, making the purchase and driving it home. When he purchased his 1977 Triumph Spitfire, it had been sitting unused for a few

years and needed work on the suspension through to the engine and clutch. It took around a month of full-time labour to have the car running smoothly again. Graeme says the Spitfire, which has a 1500cc engine is light and quite nippy. The Spitfire 1500 was produced from 1974 to 1980 and was the last model in the series to roll off the production line. Both the Mark I (1962-1964) and Mark II (1964-1967) had an 1147cc engine while the Mark III (1967-1970) and Mark IV (1970-1974) had a 1396cc engine. Graeme finds the Spitfire economical to run, getting about 12km to the litre around town and 13-14km on a long trip. He and Bob say the 2.5 is slightly less economical at about 11km around town and nearer 13km per litre on a long trip. They have found the Triumphs reliable vehicles though Bob and Esme, who have taken their car on many rallies, once had to call on Graeme to tow them up the Arthur’s Pass Viaduct due to a fuel blockage. Given the family’s long-term love of old vehicles, the Triumphs are likely to be in the family for some time yet. “We’ll be keeping our Triumph while we still have an interest in Bob in his Triumph 2.5 classic cars,” says Esme. “Mine will be passed on to my boys,” adds Graeme.

Gardening What to grow near fruit trees The fascinating world of companion plants is one to explore. Rebecca Lees writes about how they can give your fruit trees a boost

COMPANION PLANTING is one of the most enjoyable things you can do in the fruit garden, especially if you begin with a blank canvas. Thanks to the interplanting of a host of companion plants under and around fruit trees, dull lifeless soil over time becomes full of organic matter, and alive with beneficial creatures crawling amongst it. The soil, now more fertile and robust, can aid the trees’ growth and access to nutrients, as well as increase the ability for the trees (and wider garden area) to keep pests and disease in check. Companions aren’t a magic wand, there are plenty of other tasks a gardener undertakes to ensure fruit trees are healthy and productive, but they’re a great tool and one I’ll never go without. How does it work? Companion plants can: •Lure pests to them and in turn help keep those pests away from other susceptible plants. •Confuse pests by disturbing the visual and chemical attributes that help pests find host plants. •Attract predatory insects, which then naturally lower the pest count in your garden.

PEACH COMRADE: Tansy planted with ‘blackboy’ peach tree. Tansy deters a raft of harmful flying insects and is an excellent companion for the fruit garden.

Keep an eye out If you’re particularly observant you may witness companions working their magic. You may notice ladybirds, a predatory insect;

Don’t plant grass Many orchard floors are covered in grass, with fruit trees, of all the or spot a praying mantis leaping same type, neatly planted in straight out, catching and devouring a rows. This may seem pleasing to the white butterfly. As your companion eye, but it is a field day for pests, and plants become established, it’s really can make it difficult for fruit trees to exciting to see these things unfold in grow well.

Planting to encourage bees and other pollinators into the garden When you must plant grass helps with fruit-tree pollination.

Some plants bees enjoy clovers, lucerne, dandelions, (which also benefit the fruit garden) mustard, and allow nettles to grow include borage, rosemary, lemon also.

garlic!

Fresh home-grown garlic cannot be beaten! It is so juicy and packed with flavour, and it is so simple to grow yourself! When deciding where to plant, you will need to choose an area that doesn’t get too wet, as garlic will tend to rot if it is in too much water for long periods of time. Garlic grows best in soil that is well dug over and has good drainage, so make sure you are aware of this when choosing the spot. It is so important to make sure that you have a healthy growing environment to allow the plant to thrive. If you have an overly clay soil you will need to add gypsum clay breaker to help resolve this. Paired with organic compost, your soil will be in great shape in no time! If your garden beds are prone to flooding in winter, opt for a raised bed, planter box or pot. Wherever you decide to plant, the mix you use needs to be full of organic matter and nutrition. Organic compost, blood and bone, chicken manure pellets and sheep pellets are all excellent for this. These products will supply the soil with a good boost of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium – all essential nutrients for garlic. Prepare your gardens now, so the soil is ready to go when you plant the cloves.

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

Making the most of show home viewing Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for features and fittings to put into a new home. It can also be helpful for getting a spatial feel for other aspects of a house design. Before heading out for a day’s viewing, conduct an internet search. identify the locations of show home villages and the types and sizes of the various building company’s homes on display, noting down the square metre size of each home. if wanting a high end, architectural design, focus on the larger homes that have desirable design features. if at the entry or middle level of the market, earmark homes that fit this taking in other show homes for extra ideas. allow sufficient time when visiting each show home, asking for a floor plan that has room sizes before walking through. Check also the floor to ceiling height of the rooms and consider how this feels and whether you prefer a cosier feel with the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or more spaciousness created with a higher stud or exposed ceiling beams. if doors and windows are taller than

Retail Investment

normal, weigh their effect in creating a more luxurious and spacious feel, against potential inconvenience for small children, cleaning and maintenance. on entering each room, take account of how much furniture is in each room and whether there is sufficient space for the furniture you will have in the room and the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look too, at storage capacity throughout the home and whether this is adequate. in the living areas, consider whether a lounge separated from the family living room or a true open plan kitchen, dining, living/lounge area is preferable, and compare internal kitchens with those that have natural light. Look too at the layout of the kitchen: whether to have an island sink or breakfast bar where a newspaper can be read, and children can sit and draw or complete homework; the positioning of appliances; and how important having a

pantry is. for the little rooms, equate space and features desired with that needed, especially if the budget needs to be sharp. it might be nice to have a large walk-in shower with double shower heads but is this just fanciful and will the extra cleaning annoy you long term. a laundry in the garage is also more economical though a separate laundry may be handier. Bring the garage size into the equation also. as these vary considerably, assess the actual measurements of each garage viewed comparing this with the space needed for your motor vehicles and other

Rolleston

items to be stored there. if a good number of toys will be housed there, it may be sensible to increase the size of this area of the home. By imagining what you need, want and will have in your new home, you will be in a better position to confidently choose a design that works for you.

Marketing your property â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what does it mean? Marketing a property is more than presentation and advertising. Conceptually, marketing is identifying what prospective buyers are looking for then providing this. For example, larger homes and sections may appeal more to families. Young couples starting out, generally have tight budgets leading them to smaller properties, while older people may be looking to downsize. Brand new has a particular appeal however there will always be a market for established homes. Having a picture in your mind of the type of buyer will help in determining the features to emphasise. If repairs and maintenance need to be carried out before putting the property on the market, seek the advice of a real estate agent. They can advise on what tasks are worth completing and what might be unnecessary expense. Installing a new kitchen or changing the carpet may lift the house but will the expense be recouped in the sale price? On the other hand, modernising an outdated kitchen or bathroom could make a huge difference to the look of the place. Avoid going overboard unless the capital value of properties in the area justifies this. Real estate agents are in contact with prospective buyers so aware of what they are looking for. Draw on their expertise and advice to help make the most of the selling opportunity. Establishing a relevant and fair price for a property is important. Most agents calculate this based on the price properties in the area have sold for,

and what a particular property has to offer. A unique or exceptional property may justify a higher price, though run-down properties can gain more than they appear to merit. This might be due to the area or other factors that suggest a good investment. When promoting a property, mix it up and be creative so your property stands out from the rest. TradeMe is a must; checked by most people looking to buy. Present the features the property offers as benefits to potential buyers. Erect a sign outside the property. People stop and look at photographs and this might spark sufficient interest for them to visit an open home. Spending a fortune on massive advertising campaigns in every media might seem a way to attract potential buyers but may be an unnecessary expense without the return. A better philosophy could be a little often. This will depend on the value of the property, your budget and how best to reach target buyers. Buyer perception is also significant. For example, properties that sit for a while can become stale. Resting the property by taking it off the market for a short time, then relisting perhaps in spring or when sales in the area appear to lift a little, can make a difference. However, if a property does not sell immediately there is no need for panic or dropping the price. It may simply be that the right buyer has not yet come along. If the mix is right your property will sell.

If a property does not sell immediately there is no need for panic or dropping the price.
