Inside

FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK IT IS a bit of a sporting edition of Selwyn Times this week. The UC Championships, the schoolboy rugby competition, started at the weekend and Lincoln Combined got off to a great start against city boys of St Bede’s College (page 12). Lincoln Combined had had a rough season last year, with just one win, but lets hope the lads can keep up the momentum as they head to Nelson this weekend. West Melton’s Ben Taylor has had a cracker year. Not only has he been part of the winning St Andrew’s College Maadi Cup squad, but now he has been named in the national junior rowing team (page 13). Finally, sports photographer Karen Casey was at the combined country rugby competition match up of Lincoln v Rakaia at the weekend. See all the action over on page 15. Hei kona.

News Strong support for RSA plans

Fashion „„ By Tom Doudney and Georgia O’Connor-Harding PLANS FOR a new Returned and Services Association to be established in Rolleston have received a strong wave of support from members at the Templeton RSA. It is proposed for a new RSA to be established, co-locating the Templeton RSA and the Regimental History Centre based at Burnham Military Camp. At a special general meeting held with the Templeton RSA on Sunday, 63 members voted for the organisation to move to Rolleston while three members voted against the proposal. Templeton RSA president John Rae said while plans for the new RSA is in the early stages, the organisation is excited for the move. “We do hear of RSAs closing throughout the country and to have one opening I think is something you can be proud of,” he said. Mr Rae said the new relationship between the history centre and RSA will be positive not only for the two organisations but for the community in Rolleston.

The Regimental History Centre, which is a sub group of the Canterbury Regiment Association displays a significant collection of South Island military history. Items on display at the

centre includes replicas of New Zealand soldier Charles Upham’s medals and a bass drum that went ashore at Gallipoli in 1915 containing shell dressings applied to the wounds of soldiers.

Regimental History Centre chairman David Clarkson said the centre would like to move out of the military camp so it is more accessible to the public. “There are security issues and it takes quite a bit of effort to get people into the camp,” he said. Mr Clarkson said if people want to come see the displays they have to go through the camp’s guard house, give proof of their identity and have people monitor them while they are on site. He said Rolleston would be a good place for the centre due to its population base and a number of people who live in the area are associated to the military camp. “We would be quite happy to be on a site which is associated with the RSA . . . it is like us, an integral part of the community and with a military background,” he said. A location for the RSA is still yet to be decided on. HAVE YOUR SAY: Would you like to see a new RSA in Rolleston? Email your views to georgia.oconnor@ starmedia.kiwi

In Brief FIRE IN SCHOOL A group of youths started a fire in a Rolleston school on Thursday night. Emergency services were called to Clearview Primary on Broadlands Dr at about 9.45pm and found a fire near the fence about 2x2m big. When police arrived the group ran. They conducted an area search but didn’t find any of the youths. “The caretaker has said this is an ongoing problem,” Sergeant Alex Pickover said. LASER POINTED AT PLANE Police are looking for a person who shone a laser into a southbound flight on Thursday night. Air traffic control contacted the Rolleston police to report the laser strike that happened between 6.30-7pm. The Mt Cook Airline flight was at about 8000ft when there was a brief strike in the cockpit, but it did not affect the flight. Sergeant Alex Pickover said it is believed the offender who shone the laser could have been near Birdlings Flat or Lake Ellesmere and police searched the area but didn’t find anyone.

White butterfly woes

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: IF YOU have ever grown broccoli, cauliflower and cabbages you will have cursed the white butterfly caterpillars that can massacre your brassica crops. Pieris rapae is the scientific name for this destructive species of cruciferous farm and garden crops which is more commonly seen as a ubiquitous white butterfly. The species arrived in New Zealand in 1929 and quickly became a widespread pest of brassica crops, including cabbage, throughout the country. The wingspan of the butterfly ranges from 32-47mm and the NEW LOCATION number of black dotsADVERT.pdf on the fore-1 wings identifies the males from

Vandals hit park

INFLUX: The Coes Ford camping ground is one of the areas in Selwyn to have had an increase in freedom campers over the past year. ​

Fashion „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A SPATE of vandalism has struck at a park leaving the community to clean up the mess. An increase in the number of incidents damaging Doyleston’s Osborne Park over the past week has been “disheartening” for volunteers. The park has become a target for minor crime with damage including lawn mower fuel stolen from the park’s hall, grass ripped up by mud grip tyres and a plaque donated by the Osborne family torn off recently.  In a bid to reduce vandalism, padlocks in the park have been changed and the Doyleston Community Committee will consult the district council on cost-effective ways to have cameras installed. Committee member Jack Pearcy said while there has been the occasional incident with the park, the trouble has escalated over the past week.  “You get young stupid idiots wrecking the place where two or three very dedicated people are keeping Osborne Park in

the wonderful condition for the public viewers,” he said. He said volunteers had worked hard to maintain the park and keep the ratepayer money down and the vandals needed a kick. A volunteer who did not want to be named, out of fear of retaliation said what had been done in the past week had been disheartening. “It is just people who haven’t got a lot to do. . . we seem to be copping it at the moment.

Senior constable Lois Willis Croft said police are investigating the vandalism and have a lead as to who may be causing the destruction. District councillor Murray Lemon said he would be happy to support what is decided by the Doyleston Community Committee to address the issues. But he said while cameras can capture useful information, it is still difficult to identify offenders.

•From page 1 Cr Watson said: “(Christchurch City Council) took a very poor view in my opinion, which was to effectively ban all freedom camping in their entire council area, which has pushed those wanting to be close to Christchurch out to us and the Waimakariri,” he said. Last year, the Christchurch City Council changed its freedom camping bylaw to ban campers without toilets from council-owned land.  This was after facilities became over-crowded, unsanitary and out-of-control in the 2015/16, summer causing residents to complain.  Five locations in Christchurch and Banks Peninsula, including the Lower Styx River car park and the Addington Reserve car

park, were closed to campers. Cr Watson said it is about ensuring the district has the right infrastructure to cope, as well as communicating to the campers about etiquette. District councillor Jeff Bland said he would like to see a push by central Government on communication with tourists to re-enforce the country’s expectations of the freedom campers. He said while he doesn’t have a problem with people having a cheap holiday, “irresponsible campers” should not get away with being unhygienic. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think changes to the Christchurch City Council freedom camping bylaw is impacting Selwyn?

Paralympian give kids surprise visit

REMEMBRANCE: Lincoln High School head girl Libby Trevelyan and head boy Regan Kay. Libby presents a Scripture reading at the Lincoln Community Anzac Day Service. PHOTO: DARREN TAYLOR ​

Big turnout at Anzac service A STRONG community presence for the Lincoln Anzac service has been praised by Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton. About 700 people attended the event held at the Lincoln Event Centre, adjacent to the Lincoln war memorial. “As I look around at the young ones contributing to this service . . . it emphasises that we must make good on the sacrifices made by earlier generations and ensure that today’s youth

have a community and a society in which they can truly fulfil themselves,” Mr Broughton said. Lincoln Community Anzac Day Service Committee member Ian Collins said the turnout which has been similar to the past two years delighted the organisers. He said it was a sign of ongoing community spirit and appreciation for the wartime sacrifices of those from Lincoln and elsewhere.

IT WAS no ordinary day at a holiday programme in Rolleston with New Zealand’s youngest Rio paralympian giving children a school holidays highlight. Double bronze medallist paralympian, William Stedman, 17, visited Sport Canterbury’s Active Kids holiday programme in Rolleston last week. Stedman brought his bronze medals, joined in on the morning athletics session, challenged the children to a running race and talked about his career path into the world of paralympics. Sport Canterbury Active Kids manager Jules Wilke said children had the chance to ask Stedman questions about the games. “William led the athletics “Run Jump Throw” session and enjoyed meeting children who, much like himself, started out with dreams of representing New Zealand,” she said. Children also went swimming at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre, had a training session with Canterbury Country Cricket and completed an orienteering course at Halswell Quarry. The Sport Canterbury’s Active Kids holiday programmes are specifically designed to cater for ages five to 13.

Linda Miratana

Gym instructor gets With 23 years of working as a gym instructor under her belt, Linda Miratana has transformed the Lincoln Event Centre into a popular place for group gym classes. Georgia O’Connor-Harding spoke to her about what brought her to Lincoln

HIGH ACHIEVER: Gym instructor Linda Miratana was recognised with two awards from the New Zealand Exercise Industry last year. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

What does your job involve at the Lincoln Event Centre? I am the assistant manager here. I have been in that role for three years. I did work here prior to that just part-time, but then took on the full-time role as assistant manager. I teach group fitness and manage the group instructors here. I am the group fitness manager in both centres in Rolleston and Lincoln. I am often here first thing in the morning for my day job and I am often here at nighttime teaching classes too. I just need a bed at my desk and I will be fine. What has kept you here so long? It is such a great community. After working here I moved here because I loved it so much. I used to live in Templeton. I live just two minutes away, which can be good and bad because sometimes I am the person on call. What was it like to win the group exercise freestyle instructor of the year and people’s choice award at the New Zealand Exercise Industry

Awards last year? That was fantastic, so exciting for me. I have been teaching for 23 years and it was really nice to be recognised. Without me knowing they sent a person into my classes and they did the whole class then they had to report back. It was a really nice feeling, but I stay grounded because I love doing it more than anything else. Do you have rough days? How do you push yourself through? You play your music and that usually gives you a lift. There may just be the odd day where you feel tired but, honestly, as soon as you get that music going it gives you a boost. Plus the people – I always look at the people and think these people have come here for me tonight. They can go to any instructor but they chose to come here to my class. Do you have any specific way to get people involved in classes? I will talk to people and reassure them. There are a couple of ladies in their 70s as well as

a 21-year-old and all ages in between in my classes. I have all different levels of fitness. You can go in the back, hide in the corner and give them lots of options to make it easier. Two months down the track people in our beginners classes are addicted too. What are your favourite classes to do? Definitely not dance because I can’t. I am useless. Yoga I need to do more of but don’t. I tend to like classes more intense. Spin and pump are my favourite. They are hard but give you good results. It was pump I got awards for. I have done a couple of presentations, such as the FITEX (conference for the New Zealand fitness and exercise industry) last year. I presented a workshop on pump, which is the first time I have done that and I have applied to do it again this year as well. How do you come up with ideas for choreography of your classes? I go to lots of fitness conferences and try to get ideas.

Lincoln residents all pumped up Ideas for songs – I play the music channel on television a lot. Music in my car when I am driving and I have got the Shazam app so if I hear a song on the radio I can tell straight away it would be a great pump or spin song and I can then create my song from that. I have found the longer I have been here – because I have such a good base of people that keep coming back – we are all getting stronger, so it is making my tracks a little harder now. If we go back two years ago and do a class I used to teach, it would be so much easier. Do you have a favourite go to snack? Not really a favourite, but a go to just before my class is a tin of tuna for energy. I eat it before my pump class and it gives me so much energy and strength but it is not that pleasant. Other snacks are nuts and I often have a sneaky bit of dark chocolate. I am a bit of a health nut with my food. Are you from the United Kingdom and what brought you here? I was born in London but lived in Yorkshire until I was 18, then I went to Blackpool and The Fylde College and did catering

DREAM, BELIEVE: One of Linda Miratana’s favourite moments in her job was getting 25 people from her class to enter the PhysioMed Women’s Triathlon or Duathlon in February.

and hotel management for three years. It was while I was on that course I met a Kiwi and married him over there when I was 21 and have been in New Zealand ever since. I am sure if I had still been over there I never would

have found my group fitness. It was through coming here, I had only been here for a few days and my new sister-in-law took me into Les Mills. And after a few years, they asked me if I would be interested in being a trainee

teacher and that is how I started my career in fitness. Do you have a life motto? I just like to be a good role model, and practice what I preach, and sell the benefits of what we do. It is a good addiction

to have. It just makes me happy what I do. What is one of your biggest achievements at the centre? We had a group from the centre that entered the PhysioMed women’s triathlon or duathlon. We had 25 of our ladies from classes that entered it in February. Some had never ran before and it was a great event where we all supported one another, not only with our training, but also on the day. Everybody wore the same top, which read on the front ‘Dream, Believe, Inspire, Achieve,’ which has now become our fitness motto. Do you have any goals you would like to achieve? Probably to just get more involved in presenting and to make sure that, ultimately, when my time comes to not be here, the centre can still provide great quality classes. I want to continue mentoring new instructors, because if I was to go, I don’t want gym classes to change here. So I need a strong base of instructors to carry on what I have started here. I would hate to go and for the place to go back to where it was.

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding PAUL WILLIAMS has never shied away from taking on the sporting world in spite of only having one able arm. “It is an advantage, I think, because it makes you want to beat able-body people,” he said.  That is exactly what the Rolleston resident did recently by winning the lawn bowls champion of champions men’s colts singles against Colin Stoddart, of Halswell, 21-15. He said it was good to get a Canterbury title under his belt so early in his career. Williams, 54, was born without his left arm. He said doctors had never been able to determine why. “It was around the time of the drug thalidomide, but my mother did not think she took the sickness pills. They could never pin-point what caused it,” he said.  Williams first joined the West Melton Bowling Club about two years ago after sustaining injuries from over-using his arm playing golf.  Having always had a passion for sports, he first began playing soccer at the age of five before delving into rugby, badminton and squash.  After his first win, Williams will now take a break with the lawn bowling season not set to start up again until

WINNER: Paul Williams won the men’s colts singles title against Colin Stoddart at the champion of champions tournament held recently.

Swimmer grabs gold, SPORTS silver in Australia LINCOLN’S Hannah Bates has returned home from the Australian Age Group Swimming Championships with a gold and silver medal. Bates, 16, made her first experience representing New Zealand one to remember by winning two medals and smashing a number of personal best times at the championships held in Brisbane late last month. She first won gold in the girls 16-years 400m individual medley. Her time of 4min 53.21sec in the final was 8sec better than her previous personal best. Bates then grabbed her second medal two days later when she produced another personal best to win silver in the individual medley in a time of 2min 18.69sec. She was the only South Island member of the 23 strong New Zealand team in Brisbane and the first ever representative from the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. The future looks exciting for Bates, who has also been named to the short-list for the New Zealand team for the 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games in the Bahamas.

Maadi Cup stars make national team SPORTS „„ By Andrew King THEY TOOK on the best in the country, now Ben Taylor, of West Melton, and Thomas Russel, of St Albans, will take on the world. The duo have been named in the national junior rowing team. The two 17-year-old St Andrew’s College students were a part of the winning Maadi Cup squad which not only brought back the top prize for the first time in the college’s history, but the Springbok Shield as well. They will row in the four coxless at the junior world rowing championships in Trakai, Lithuania, from August 2-6. Rowing is in Taylor’s blood, the last time the school raised the shield was when his father, Andrew, was in the boat 34 years ago. Now he has been named in the national squad, he said he has one up on his father. “He is really supportive, really interested and completely stoked that I have made the team,” he said. Russel made the team last year and said he was nervous going into the trials, but once he got on the water he just got stuck into his work.

“I was more shocked about making it the year before, but I am still extremely happy to back that up,” he said. Taylor and Russel have been in the boat together for the past four years and both agree having each other there really pushes them to perform better. “You see each other on the water but then spend a bit more time together out of it as well, and that means we really want to push for each other,” Russel said. Taylor said he has to give credit to coach Dale Maher, who has been the “perfect finishing” coach. “He won seven jubilee cups in his eight years while coaching the Rangi Ruru Girls’ eight, so he knows his stuff,” Taylor said. Both said they are incredibly proud to be able to represent their country in a sport they love. •More sport, page 15

Southern ChiropraCtiC 290 halSwell road

Laser treatment proven to reduce pain The effective use of low level laser treatment for assisting in the healing of deep tissue and joint problems has been used for more than 40 years. This treatment, which uses photo stimulation of mitochondria in cells, is able to penetrate into the site of injury to promote healing and reduce inflammation – relaxing muscles and reducing pain. Southern Chiropractic principal chiropractor Andre Grob has seen how the non-invasive treatment has resulted in impressive results for his clients. “I attended the World Congress conference on lower back pain in Singapore last year where they reinforced the use of low level laser treatment on lower back pain.

associated with arthritis, neck and lower back pain. It is approved by the FDA and Meta analysis by the Lancet Medical Journal also endorses the treatment saying it can reduce pain intensity, disability and the reoccurrence of pain. Andre can also provide other treatments including adjustments, exercises, stretches and muscle therapy – to readjust the body or help it heal from conditions that are physical in origin. These can include problems such as back pain, muscle spasms, headaches and poor posture.

“It was great to confirm the technology I have been treating my patients with has been highly researched with clinical studies showing the positive effect on acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain.”

What you may not know is that it is also completely appropriate to receive chiropractic care even though you may not have symptoms. Unlike standard medical doctors who you visit when you have symptoms that need to be treated, chiropractors offer adjustments to improve spinal alignment and overall wellbeing – and can prevent the pain or other symptoms even starting.

The treatment, which only takes 15 to 20 minutes, is especially effective with muscle and joint pain, stiffness

Going to a chiropractor is much the same as going to the dentist or gym or even leading a healthy life – it

prevents problems from reaching critical stage where you can become incapacitated and as long as you keep up with regular visits, then you continue to enjoy the benefits of a life feeling well. “I have been providing Chiropractic Care for patients for more than 15 years and during that time I have gained outstanding results. If you are experiencing back or neck pain or feel that treatment may be of benefit to you please give me a call.” ACC recognises chiropractors as primary health care specialists when it comes to spinal care so you do not need a referral from a GP to seek treatment for a back or neck injury as a result of accidental causes. In the event of an accident we can initiate a claim directly and if it is accepted, treatment costs will be subsidised. Southern Chiropractic, located at 290 halswell Road, is open Monday, Wednesday Thursday and Friday. on Tuesdays the clinic operates from Ashburton Chiropractic in Ashburton. For Tuesday bookings please phone 03 308 9516, or 03 322 1432. For all other bookings at the halswell location, please phone 03 322 1432 or email dre.nik@xtra.co.nz, or visit their website at www.southernchiropratic.co.nz for further information.

Recognising the Early Signs of Osteoporosis By Cath King, Nutritionist at Osteohealth NZ

How do we know whether our bones are healthy or not? We can’t see them like we can our skin, or listen to them like the heart or lungs. They feel strong through our flesh. But are they really? Bone density scans are a way to look inside bone, and see how dense or strong they are, but we rarely get a bone density test until after menopause, when it might be too late.

Studies show that only 12 percent of people with osteoporosis have had a bone mineral density (BMD) scan, the most reliable diagnostic test for osteoporosis. This is likely due to a lack of awareness among middle-aged and older women and their physicians about the risk of osteoporosis. Some early signs that may indicate bone loss are: • Not getting much sun exposure • Difficulty getting up from a chair without using your arms to push • Joint or muscle aches • A resting pulse greater than 80 beats per minute • Height loss

Heat is transferred to the incoming filtered fresh air

• Increasing stooping (curvature of the spine) • Receding gums

• Decreased grip strength • Weak and brittle fingernails • Cramps, muscle aches • Low overall fitness If you have risk factors for osteoporosis –

meaning you’re a woman, postmenopausal, slight build, take medication or you’re vitamin D-deficient, among others – don’t wait until you have symptoms to get screened. Unfortunately, bone loss, leading to osteoporosis, often occurs without any noticeable symptoms, so by the time you have a fracture, feel pain, or develop curvature of the spine, osteoporosis may already be present. Luckily, if you identify bone loss early, you can take steps to reduce your risk of osteoporosis. Bone Mineral Density testing will be available at Lincoln Rec Centre (Lincoln University) on Friday 19th May.

The sessions will look at how your eyes can be tricked by an illusion. Sessions will run from 3.30-4.30pm at: · Lincoln on Monday 8 May, · Rolleston on Tuesday 9 May, · Leeston on Wednesday 10 May, and · Darfield on Thursday 11 May. Booking is required to attend, see www.selwynlibraries.co.nz

Paws for Reading is here Local dogs and their owners are working with Selwyn District Libraries to help children to improve their reading skills. Paws for Reading is a new programme being launched in May. The programme is designed to provide an opportunity for children who are not confident reading aloud or who need to develop their reading skills to read to a friendly dog for fifteen minutes each week. “We are excited about this new programme. Similar programmes overseas and in New Zealand have been shown to assist most children to improve their reading fluency and confidence,” says Selwyn Libraries Manager Vicki Carlyon. The dogs being used in the programme are carefully selected by the Selwyn Dog Training Club to be suitable to work with children. The sessions are being trialled during term two at all local libraries and are open to primary school children. Sessions are free but booking is required – to book a place please visit www.selwynlibraries.co.nz or contact your local library.

A recycling programme for expired or damaged car seats is currently operating in Selwyn. Until June 2017 the Council is offering a collection point at Rolleston and subsidising the processing cost. You can take unwanted car seats to the Pines Resource Recovery Park for a small $5 charge. The SeatSmart recycling programme can help reduce the amount of recyclable materials going to landfill and remove expired seats from circulation which improves road safety. The seats are dismantled through Department of Corrections community work programmes which provide opportunities for offenders to learn new skills and contribute to the community. The recovered plastic is recycled into products for the building industry, metal parts are taken to metal recyclers, and the harnesses will be used by Karkt NZ and The Green Collective who make handmade bags from recycled items. Booster and convertible seats can be recycled through the recycling programme, along with capsules, but polystyrene seats are not part of the programme. Selwyn School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler says all car seats have an expiry date on them and over time seats can be damaged from UV light, heat, general wear and tear or in a crash. Parents can find information about how to check their seat’s expiry date at www.seatsmart.co.nz. Locally, the Council has trained a number of volunteers as child restraint technicians and they can check car seat safety and install seats for free - see 'Selwyn Car Seat Champions' on Facebook for details. “The Council is pleased to be able to partner with SeatSmart to help reduce the amount of car seats going to landfill. To help make the program a success we are asking people to remove and dispose of the fabric seat covers before bringing them in,” says Selwyn District Council Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd.

Road resurfacing will take place on Dalethorpe 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.

Road widening – Jones Road 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. This work is occurring now in order to be completed prior to the NZ Transport Agency starting work on a new Motorway interchange at Weedons Ross Road. Maddisons Road is suggested as an alternative route to Jones Road at peak times.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension 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.

The Pines Resource Recovery Park is located at 183 Burnham School Road and is open Monday to Fridays, 9am-4.30pm, and from 10am-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays. For more information about SeatSmart contact roadsafety@selwyn.govt.nz

Explore Illusions with Science Alive! During May Science Alive! will visit Selwyn District Libraries to offer free sessions for kids aged 5-10. The sessions will look at how your eyes can be tricked by an illusion. Sessions will run from 3.30-4.30pm at: · Lincoln on Monday 8 May, · Rolleston on Tuesday 9 May, · Leeston on Wednesday 10 May, and · Darfield on Thursday 11 May. Booking is required to attend, see www.selwynlibraries.co.nz

Paws for Reading is here Local dogs and their owners are working with Selwyn District Libraries to help children to improve their reading skills. Paws for Reading is a new programme being launched in May. The programme is designed to provide an opportunity for children who are not confident reading aloud or who need to develop their reading skills to read to a friendly dog for fifteen minutes each week. “We are excited about this new programme. Similar programmes overseas and in New Zealand have been shown to assist most children to improve their reading fluency and confidence,” says Selwyn Libraries Manager Vicki Carlyon. The dogs being used in the programme are carefully selected by the Selwyn Dog Training Club to be suitable to work with children. The sessions are being trialled during term two at all local libraries and are open to primary school children. Sessions are free but booking is required – to book a place please visit www.selwynlibraries.co.nz or contact your local library.

A recycling programme for expired or damaged car seats is currently operating in Selwyn. Until June 2017 the Council is offering a collection point at Rolleston and subsidising the processing cost. You can take unwanted car seats to the Pines Resource Recovery Park for a small $5 charge. The SeatSmart recycling programme can help reduce the amount of recyclable materials going to landfill and remove expired seats from circulation which improves road safety. The seats are dismantled through Department of Corrections community work programmes which provide opportunities for offenders to learn new skills and contribute to the community. The recovered plastic is recycled into products for the building industry, metal parts are taken to metal recyclers, and the harnesses will be used by Karkt NZ and The Green Collective who make handmade bags from recycled items. Booster and convertible seats can be recycled through the recycling programme, along with capsules, but polystyrene seats are not part of the programme. Selwyn School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler says all car seats have an expiry date on them and over time seats can be damaged from UV light, heat, general wear and tear or in a crash. Parents can find information about how to check their seat’s expiry date at www.seatsmart.co.nz. Locally, the Council has trained a number of volunteers as child restraint technicians and they can check car seat safety and install seats for free - see 'Selwyn Car Seat Champions' on Facebook for details. “The Council is pleased to be able to partner with SeatSmart to help reduce the amount of car seats going to landfill. To help make the program a success we are asking people to remove and dispose of the fabric seat covers before bringing them in,” says Selwyn District Council Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd.

Road resurfacing will take place on Dalethorpe 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.

Road widening – Jones Road 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. This work is occurring now in order to be completed prior to the NZ Transport Agency starting work on a new Motorway interchange at Weedons Ross Road. Maddisons Road is suggested as an alternative route to Jones Road at peak times.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension 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.

The Pines Resource Recovery Park is located at 183 Burnham School Road and is open Monday to Fridays, 9am-4.30pm, and from 10am-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays. For more information about SeatSmart contact roadsafety@selwyn.govt.nz

Fashion Quarterly from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda It’s the Season of the Jacket Our up and down weather at the moment makes it difficult to dress so a jacket that can be left on is a practical choice. Both leather and faux leather jackets are ultra popular right now and are available in a range of neutrals with brown being a new in-vogue colour this season. Taupes, tans, stone, beige navy and black are also available.

power plant which thrills with its honesty. Peugeot rates the 1192cc unit at a healthy 81kW and 205Nm. Not only are they high outputs for engine size, it’s the area where the power is developed that is most interesting. Peak power comes in at just 5500rpm and maximum torque is available from 1500rpm, both low in the rev band and that is what you need in all engines, the ability to haul from low revolutions. Boost from the turbocharger is also constant, there is little lag at any point. • Price – Peugeot 2008, $36,990 • Dimensions – Length, 4159mm; width, 1829mm; height, 1556mm • Configuration – Three-cylinder, frontwheel-drive, 1199cc, 81kW, 205Nm, sixspeed automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 10.3sec • Fuel usage – 4.8l/100km

If you also add in the benefit of a six-speed automatic, there’s never a point where you think the gearing and engine output aren’t matched, the driveline is fluid and responsive. Peugeot also list a 1280kg kerb weight for the 2008, that’s quite light, offering a healthy power-to-weight ratio. The gearing has been structured so that there is reasonable acceleration to highway speed with

Fresh driveline for Peugeot 2008 I’M A firm believer in the two-wheel-drive sport utility vehicle market. The reason being is that most SUV buyers have no intention of taking their cars/wagons into a loose surface environment, there is mostly little need for four-wheel-drive. A lot of manufacturers are into that concept and they are increasing the number of 2WD SUVs. Peugeot has just launched a new crossover/SUV/wagon – the 2008. While its concept has been around for a few years, the newcomer has a fresh driveline and a fairly hefty upgrade. Loosely based around the 208 platform, the 2008 is an SUV of mini proportions at just over 4m, but it has a practical interior that is capable of transporting awkward loads with adaptable and versatile rear seat configurations. It is also a comfortable car for four adults, it’s a bit of squeeze width-wise for three adults in the rear but there’s no shortage of head or leg room, and the 2008 is clever in the way it translates its limited space into occupant comfort. The 2008 lands here in two levels, $34,990 will get you into the Allure, an extra $2000 will buy what Peugeot describes as the GT-Line, it gets a wealth of sporty trim accents, bigger wheels (17in) and a higher spec including a clever grip control system. Effectively, it is an advanced traction and stability control programme that also allows the 2008 to tackle those offthe-seal situations that arise from time to time, but bearing in mind cross-country travel is limited. Under the bonnet is a new turbocharged, threecylinder engine and sixspeed transmission which is finding its way across Peugeot and Citroen lineups. I’ve encountered this unit in other Peugeot product and it is an engine which punches well above its weight, you have to discard the notion of it being small, it is a strong, capable

a tallish top gear so that the engine is relaxed at 100km/h, turning over slowly at 2000rpm. At that speed the engine is sipping fuel at the rate of just five-litres per 100km (56mpg), that promoted a 7.2l/100km (39mpg) average during my time behind the wheel. These are satisfactory figures but are a little distant to Peugeot’s 4.8l/100km (58mpg) combined cycle claim, although my driving style doesn’t augur well for fuel economy. On the subject of figures, the 2008 is lively enough, it will reach 100km/h from a standstill in just over 10sec and will complete a highway overtake in 6.9sec (80km/h to 120km/h). Peugeot has always had a reputation for ride/handling quality and that has been engineered into the 2008. It has a compliant, moderately-firmed ride with a handling feel that is moderately sporty. The chassis isn’t disturbed by mid-corner bumps or road deviations, the suspension does a good job of keeping body balance. Providing the grip are 205/50 Good Year tyres, according to the casing they are worded all season and during my time with the test car they were certainly put to the test on wet surfaces, heavy rain lowered grip levels substantially. Nevertheless, the entire car felt secured to the road and steering feel is another Peugeot hallmark, the 2008 as a package constantly feels controlled and safe. The latter of course is five-star rated and sits beside a healthy level of specification, major features include satellite navigation, touch screen infotainment, cruise control and speed limiter and high quality trim materials. The new 2008 is an example of a good car made better, the new driveline is certainly a case of less is more.

We have pictured the Coalition LA faux leather jacket in Coffee colourway ($199) on our seated mannequin. This colour is a neutral which will go with almost everything and can be a softer alternative to black. This mannequin is also sporting the on trend Quay sunnies which are a must have this season ($69.90). Another faux leather option is the stylish Airlie biker jacket with rose gold zips ($185.95). Rose gold is hugely popular right now so if you are amongst those of us addicted to this colour, then this is your go-to jacket. This is a fitted style which gives plenty of shape so is very flattering over dresses or with pants and jeans. Airlie, a new Australian label, also has the beautiful misty grey faux suede jacket with drapey lapels ($165.95). This is another style that can be left on as it has stretch and is comfortable and looks amazing contrasting with navy or black underneath. Another new jacket shape which has become very popular is the bomber. This shape can a little more casual and is comfortable and easy to wear. A bomber jacket can also be worn with jeans, pants or with skirts and dresses so is a versatile addition to the wardrobe. We have pictured the faux leather Airlie bomber in stunning pink ($165.95) over a navy and white Elm striped dress ($99.95). If vibrant colours are you , we have found a beautiful bright orange jacket in ultra cosy 100 % wool by High Style ($189). This jacket looks great left undone but adds more shape if worn zipped up to bring in the waistline. There are many more jackets available but this selection gives a little taster of what’s available now in store at Viva la Moda. See you soon.

Diana Noonan provides a few tip on greenhouse for this purpose, there how to use your greenhouse over the autumn months are one or two things to bear in mind. The greening of potatoes is caused by four factors: light quality (how bright the light is), the duration during which the tubers are exposed to light, the temperature they are exposed to, and the variety of potato (some have thicker skins than others). When I dry my potatoes in the greenhouse, I minimise the time the harvest is exposed to the light (leaving them in the light for no more than two days and turning them a couple of times a day to hurry the process). I leave the greenhouse UNDER COVER: Pumpkins need to be ‘cured’ if they are door and vents open to lower the to keep well over winter.

sun for the harvest. Obviously, even if your greenhouse is vermin proof, it is unwise to store the potatoes in it because temperatures will be warmer than desirable, even over winter. Potatoes should be stored in a cool (1-4°C.), dark place with moderate ventilation. Greenhouses are the cure Autumn may be ‘the season of mellow fruitfulness’ according to the poet Keats, but it’s also the season when dampness is creeping into the mornings and late afternoons. All of which makes curing pumpkins and other cucurbits a headache. Unless, of course, you have a greenhouse. Pumpkins and their relatives need to be stored in a warm, dry place for around four weeks if they are to store well into winter. During the curing process, the gourds’ skins harden, and any minor blemishes heal over, protecting the flesh beneath. Curing also helps immature fruit to ripen and sweeten. Because curing should ideally occur at temperatures

between 27-29 deg C, greenhouses provide the ideal place for it to take place. I cure pumpkins, kumi kumi and marrows on wooden pallets placed on the floor of my glasshouse. It’s fascinating to watch the shells harden on the vegetables and to see how they deepen in colour. Sun-dried decoration Bright dried foods make for pretty decorations in the kitchen, whether stored in a jar or strung up on threads of cotton or natural jute string. As soon as the chillies in my glasshouse are ripe (which is when they have turned the mature colour indicated on their seed packet or plant label), I whip them off the bush. While their stems are still soft, I use a needle to thread them onto cotton, spacing them slightly apart from each other to encourage ventilation, then hang them across he roof of the greenhouse to dry. As most of the plants are gone from my greenhouse by now, humidity is low and the chillies dry within a few days or a week or two depending on conditions. I also dry bunches of herbs in the greenhouse, tying their stems loosely, and placing the bunches heads down in a large paper bag hung high in the structure (heat rises so the higher they are hung the better). The bags serve to catch the leaves (or seeds) as they fall.

gardening without guesswork Question:

I have moved into a new place that has a beautiful flower garden that includes the likes of dahlias, chrysanthemums and roses. What do I need to do to help them survive the winter?

At this time of year you will need to cut back your chrysanthemums and dahlias by about two thirds once they have finished flowering. Make sure that when you are cutting these back, you use sharp secateurs and do it on a fine, dry day. To help protect them from the winter cold, add a layer of bark mulch to the garden to keep them nice and snug through the cooler months.

Answer:

Your roses will also benefit from some mulch to protect them. Organic compost dug through the soil will boost them as well. As winter begins, this is a good time to prune them. Check out the gardening advice section on our website for more information on how to prune http://www.intelligro.co.nz/all-about-roses. It will also pay to give them a spray – head to your local garden centre, they will point you in the right direction. The spray will help to protect the plant’s new growth from winter frosts, as well as protection from diseases. Please note that if you have rambling roses, these are best pruned in summer.

Other maintenance in the flower garden Primulas, pansies and polyanthus will love a side dressing of fertiliser to help see them through the winter. Make sure that you clean up any leaves from around the garden, add some organic compost to give the soil a boost of organic matter, and add a bark mulch to the top for extra protection.

The Selwyn District Council’s Project Steering Committee and Council have been continuing to develop plans for the new West Melton Community and Recreation Centre. Resource Consent has been granted for the project and a fundraising drive will be launched in September to gain support for the project from the local community and corporate sponsors. Plans for the Community and Recreation Centre include a main stadium with a full-sized basketball court, meeting rooms, catering kitchen, playcentre

and Plunket facilities, Scout hall and youth area, toilets and change facilities, associated landscaping and plenty of car parking. The existing community hall will remain available for use until the new facility is open, and it is planned to remove the old building once the new facility opens.

Prime Minister Bill English and Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy were in Darfield on April 20 for the ribbon-cutting to signal the start of construction of Stage 2 of Central Plains Water, which will have the capacity to irrigate an additional 20,000 hectares. “This will be a real boost to the Canterbury regional economy with around 1130 new jobs expected as a result. A reliable source of water gives farmers certainty and options to invest in mixed farming operations including arable, sheep and beef finishing, dairy farming and horticulture,” Mr Guy said. “Importantly, it also has many environmental benefits. Using alpinesourced water rather than ground water is environmentally beneficial for Canterbury as it reduces pressure on aquifers, which are needed to replenish flows in lowland streams. “Replacing groundwater with river and stored alpine river water has the potential to improve water flows into Lake Ellesmere Te Waihora, helping the long-term process

of improving its water quality. “For any farm to qualify for scheme water it has to prepare a plan with a nutrient budget and meet high standards.” Crown Irrigation Investments Limited (CIIL) has committed to providing a $65 million secured loan to CPW to partfund Stage 2 of the CPW Scheme. Crown Irrigation’s partial funding of Stage 2 means that the project can be future-proofed for long-term demand. CIIL invested $6.5 million into CPW Stage 1, which has since been fully repaid, and full repayment is expected for the Stage 2 investment as well. A new Sustainable Farming Fund (SFF) project “SMART Tools and Tips for Irrigators” is aimed at improving management practices for irrigators to deliver better environmental and economic outcomes. The funding is for $294,400 and will be led by Irrigation New Zealand. Another new SFF project led by Federated Farmers will be looking at the impacts of irrigation on soil water holding properties.

This project, worth $295,950, will help both farmers and regional councils by enabling more effective and efficient use of irrigation water, reduced drainage and reduced loss of soluble nutrients. While in the region Mr Guy also visited the Hinds/Hekeao Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) project site near Ashburton. The pilot project, which began in February 2016, is testing the feasibility of adding alpine sourced water to shallow groundwater to help recharge lowland streams during dry periods and reduce nitrate levels in the groundwater. “I was pleased to hear that in the first year of this project, the bores monitoring groundwater conditions downstream have shown positive improvements in both water quantity with rising levels and in water quality with decreasing concentrations of nitrates.” A recent report by NZIER found that irrigation contributes $2.2 billion to the national economy and this has the potential to increase further.

New Zealand vets back antibiotic use reduction World Veterinary Day (WVD) took place globally on April 29, 2017. The theme this year was Antimicrobial Resistance: From awareness to action. The New Zealand Veterinary Association (NZVA) says it is well placed to discuss this concerning and challenging issue that the World Health Organisation has named one of the greatest global health challenges we face. NZVA chief executive Mark Ward says the New Zealand Veterinary Association is taking a strong position on Antimicrobial Resistance. “Our goal is that by 2030 New Zealand Inc. will not need antibiotics for the maintenance of animal health and welfare,” Mr Ward says. “It’s an aspirational goal. It’s big. But this is an enormous issue facing us, New Zealand’s veterinarians want to do their part to reduce our dependency on these critical medicines and preserve their use for as long as possible. “We knew that finding alternatives, lateral thinking, and collaboration would be key to finding solutions to antibiotic resistance. And that’s what we’re doing, with the backing of vets, government and industry across the country.” The veterinary profession’s aspirational

goal was launched by the NZVA in July 2015. They are working collaboratively with a range of organisations – from the Ministry of Health and Ministry for Primary Industries to DairyNZ and Pork New Zealand, to promote the responsible use of antibiotics in animals to ensure their continued effectiveness in safeguarding both animal and human health. “We’ve received strong support for our vision,” Mr Ward says. “We’re now exploring strategies to address antibiotic resistance; this could be an innovation opportunity for New Zealand – it should be seen in terms of opportunity. “New Zealand has some of the lowest rates of antibiotic use in animals for food production in the world. We are the thirdlowest user of antimicrobials globally. But we don’t want to be complacent. It’s important we continue this momentum.” A 2015 PwC report, commissioned by the NZVA, found that as one of the three lowest users of antibiotics to treat animals in the OECD, New Zealand could increase the value of its exports with reducedantibiotic livestock systems and scientific innovations. “Very few public health issues are of

greater importance than antimicrobial resistance in terms of their impact on society,” Mr Ward says. Effective antibiotics have been a key factor in living longer and healthier.

Addressing antimicrobial resistance is a community issue and we’re tackling it as a community - veterinarians, doctors, farmers, animal owners (pets and equine) and industry stakeholders.

Show Homes Villages in and around Selwyn Taking a walk through a show home is fun, whether thinking about building or wanting ideas for renovating or revitalising home furnishings. They can be a great place to find the latest trends in building and interior design and how certain home furnishing elements work together. It is now the norm for a building company to have a show home and for larger subdivisions to have a show home village so it is not surprising that a new impressive show home village is currently taking shape at Faringdon in Rolleston. Faringdon’s new show home village should be fully operational by July this year, with most of the major building companies opening homes in a village that is expected to be the largest of its kind to be developed in Canterbury, if not New Zealand. Other show home villages in the area are at Flemington and Te Whāriki in Lincoln. Closer to the city is Halswell on the Park, Knights Stream Park in Halswell and The Runway at Wigram Skies, where there is a good line up of interesting and varied show homes. To the north east of the city you will find the Preston subdivision, which has a show home street then in Kaiapoi, more can be seen at Silverstream and Sovereign Palms. Show homes in Selwyn can be found in the following subdivisions:

Flemington in Lincoln:

• Build 7, 45 Sunline Ave (by appointment). • Homes by Maxim, 10 Craig Thompson Drive. • Homes by Parklane, 6 Craig Thompson Drive. • Mike Greer Homes, 15 Craig Thompson Drive. • Online Design & Build, 4 Craig Thompson Drive. • Onyx Homes, 1 Oak Drive. • Orange Homes, 12 Craig Thompson Drive. • Versatile Homes & Buildings, 5 Sunline Ave.

Te Whāriki in Lincoln:

• Bainbridge Homes, 51 Vernon Drive. • Benchmark Homes, 53 Vernon Drive. • Faye Homes, 41 Vernon Drive. • Fraemohs Homes, 55 Vernon Drive. • G J Gardner, 47 Vernon Drive. • Generation Homes, 45 Vernon Drive. • Hallmark Homes, 49 Vernon Drive. • Trident Homes, 39 Vernon Drive.

Prebbleton:

• A1 Homes, 2 Carpenter Drive. • Artisan Homes, 72 Blakes Road.

Levi Park in Rolleston:

• Pringle Homes, 3 Genoa Avenue.

Faringdon in Rolleston:

• Artisan Homes, 5 Broomleigh Drive. • Compass Homes, 7 Broomleigh Drive. • G J Gardner, 1 Eversham Drive. • Horncastle Homes, 21 Ashdown Way. • Mike Greer Homes, 2 Ragley Way. • Mike Greer Homes, 14 Shillingford Boulevard. • Peter Ray Homes, 5 & 7 Stanford Way. • Today Homes, 9 & 11 Stanford Way.

More new show homes are due to open in Rolleston’s Faringdon and in Prebbleton in the coming months.
