High country station fence decision held off

Good bags for duck shooters

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A DECISION over a ratepayerfunded fence in a high country station has been held off by the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee after concerns more research needs to be done on the project. About five zone committee members will travel to Cave Stream later this month to visit the site. It was planned the committee would make a final decision on supporting the funding for a proposed fence by Flock Hill Holdings Ltd last Tuesday. Environment Canterbury proposed putting $44,236 towards fencing off a section of Cave Stream and associated 35ha wetlands at the station.  It comes after an application by Flock Hill’s leaseholder Flock Hill Holdings, owned by Jim Foster and Vince Saunders of Los Angeles-based Coast Range New Zealand.  •Turn to page 3

Greenpark resident Trent Lassen returning after a successful morning’s hunting at the opening of the duck shooting season on Saturday. Mr Lassen bagged his catch at his father Terry Lassen’s pond in Greenpark. Terry said it was a successful opening with the weather being calm and sunny. About 100 birds were shot at the property by several hunters over the weekend. Trent shot 16. Fish and Game officer Steve Terry said it was reasonably quiet around Lake Ellesmere/Te Waihora this year but people who used private ponds did well.

Tuesday May 9 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THE CONTROVERSY over the planned ratepayer-funded fence on Flock Hill Station continues. On page 1 today we reveal the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee has held off making a decision on plans for a $44,236 ratepayer-funded fence to section off a part of Cave Stream and 35ha wetlands at the station. It was planned the committee would make a final decision on supporting the funding last Tuesday. But now committee members will go out to Cave Stream to inspect the area to see whether this is money well spent – or whether the station itself should be paying for the fence. In sport today (pages 18-19) we profile a young karter going places and we have coverage of Lincoln’s win in senior netball at the weekend. – Barry Clarke

Delay in fence decision •From page 1 This was for vegetation clearance on nearby terraces so it could intensify grazing on the land. It proposed fencing off Cave Stream as a way of mitigating the associated loss of biodiversity on the terraces. The landowners will contribute $22,000 towards the project. It has since been decided, this decision to fund the project Allen Lim using ECan’s Immediate Steps programme for protecting freshwater biodiversity, is reviewed. Te Taumutu Runanga representative Les Wanhalla said he will not have an opinion until he has seen the area. “For me to sit in the office out of town to say yay or nay I don’t know what I am doing,” he said.  Zone committee chairman Allen Lim told Selwyn Times people are forgetting the landowners are putting in 120ha of farmland for conservation which is not required. “In my view $44,000 is a

minimal amount . . . if there is an opportunity to protect it, I say protect it,” he said. But it was questioned by residents at the zone committee meeting last Tuesday as to what the fence was designed to do. Springfield resident Nicky Snoyink asked if a proper landscape assessment on the terraces had been done. “I just wondered what the fence will enable? I noticed

the last couple of months up here a few of the river terraces throughout the basin had been over-sewed, drilled,” she said. She had concerns the fence would give licence for the terrace to be turned into farmland. ECan’s land management advisor Johannes Welsch responded the project is focused primarily on freshwater and the owners would have to go through another consent pro-

cess through the district council to farm the terrace. At the meeting, resident John Summers said the leaseholders have a stewardship responsibility and should be funding the project themselves. •HAVE YOU SAY: How do you think the Cave Stream fence should be funded?

In Brief ROAD PROJECTS PLANNED Three new projects will soon get under way to improve roading connections to the Rolleston industrial zone. Traffic volumes in the Rolleston industrial area have increased by more than 200 per cent over the past 10 years. The projects will cost $1.9 million and have been developed by a Roading Strategy Group. The New Zealand Transport Agency will fund 51 per cent of the cost of the projects, with the remaining cost funded through a mix of district council and developer funding. WEST MELTON HOUSE FIRE Firefighters battled a house blaze in West Melton for more than three hours yesterday. The fire started in the roof of a Halkett Rd property about 11am. Six fire crews from Kirwee, Rolleston, Burnham and Christchurch attended the blaze. No injuries were reported. WATER TREATMENT Work to install ultra violent treatment and water filtration at Springfield has begun and is expected to be completed in August. Currently the water is treated by chlorination. In Rolleston, UV treatment will be installed at Moore St and Overbury Cres. The majority of Rolleston’s water supplies will be treated with UV before summer.

Siphon raises road safety concerns Weedons Residents Association Committee secretary and resident Gary Doyle writes about his concerns on the New Zealand Transport Agency four laning development between Weedons and Hoskyns Rds The creation of the four-laning between Weedons and Hoskyns Rds, have a normal (but not required) camber at the eastern end. The Rolleston end actually has a slight reverse camber. Due to the New Zealand Transport Agency refusing to flatten the eastern end, a very expensive siphon will have to be installed. The maintenance of this will fall back on the ratepayers. NZTA flatly declined to lower the road, quoting “safety reasons” but will not discuss the reverse camber at the Rolleston end. Discussions have been held by myself with NZTA, flatly refusing to see reason but happy to cause a very possible traffic hazard which will occur when the siphon clogs up, at which time they will simply pass the buck to

the district council. I await their public explanation. On a slightly different note is the lack of action with widening both Jones and Maddisons Rds to cope with the increase in traffic, especially heavy traffic. This increase coupled with the greater usage of both roads by cyclists is also a disaster waiting to happen. New Zealand Transport Agency principal project manager Geoff Griffiths responds The works referred to are part of the NZTA’s Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2 project (CSM2). NZTA has been approached by Mr Doyle on a number of occasions over recent years regarding the changes to Main South Rd, (State Highway 1), in the vicinity of the proposed Weedons Rd Interchange. We have explained the design to Mr Doyle several times, the latest being on March 2 this year when I and the consultant’s de-

sign manager met with him for well over an hour. He was provided with drawings and a full explanation of the design including the reasons for the geometric design of the road at Weedons and at the Rolleston end of the project. There is nothing unusual in the design and it follows conventional guidelines and standards to ensure a safe and comfortable driving outcome.   The need for the siphon at

Weedons was discussed at the same meeting. Again there is nothing unusual in the use of a siphon to carry the water race under a road. It was explained that the changes to the water race network were not designed in isolation by NZTA designers but in full consultation with the Selwyn District Council.   NZTA has designed any changes to the water race to meet both the district council and

Gloria’s Handbag

NZTA requirements. The district council and NZTA believe that the changes to the water race network being undertaken as part of the CSM2 project will result in a more resilient network with lower maintenance costs. An example of this increased resilience is the provision at Weedons of a dual siphon rather than a single siphon to reduce the risk of blockage and subsequent flooding. Transport Agency engineers have also presented to the Weedons Residents Association Committee on CSM2. The widening of Jones Rd and Maddisons Rd is not included in the scope of the NZTA’s CSM2 project. However, the installation of a roundabout at the Weedons Ross Rd/Jones Rd intersection and the upgrading of both the Curraghs Rd/Jones Rd and Dawsons Rd/Jones Rd intersections are included.  In respect to cyclists, NZTA and the district council have worked together to include in the scope of the CSM2 project improved cycle facilities between Rolleston and Dawsons Rd, Templeton. These include off-road or parallel alternative options to Jones Rd. •More local views, p10

Seminars planned to ease water tensions

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A SERIES of seminars are planned to reduce tensions between Environment Canterbury and residents over how water issues in the SelwynWaihora catchment are managed. ECan’s chief scientist Tim Davie said the seminars will be held to provide residents information on the Selwyn River – the main community concerns. Tensions came to a head at the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee meeting last Tuesday over democracy surrounding water issues and the effects of farming intensification. About 20 residents took a stand after zone committee chairman Allen Lim complained divisions between ECan were beginning to emerge following a “Talk for Water” meeting in March. Residents were at the meeting to support ECan councillor Lan Pham after she made comments at the March meeting the about the way water is managed. Cr Pham said while she did not want to comment on the letter, she supported the community. “I completely support both the community who came out in support of a democratic voice and environmental limits, and the zone committee who have worked tirelessly in their zone to

make the best of a complex situation,” she said. After the meeting Mr Lim wrote a letter to ECan chairman David Bedford complaining councillors were not collaborating together. But Mr Lim said the letter was not aimed at Cr Pham. “It was about the way we work, collaborative process means everyone is getting together at the table to talk things through . . . if you have a stance where

you are not willing to compromise it does not mesh with the collaborative process,” he said. In response to Mr Lim’s letter, Mr Bedford said while the evening was “unfortunate” but he had no doubt different views will be expressed by ECan councillors on occasion. At the meeting resident Mike Glover told Mr Lim he was “out of line” for complaining about Cr Pham and the zone committee is a democratic process.

to the ones you cherish on Mother’s Day

“We need to celebrate the fact that somebody elected is putting her hand up and saying “hey all is not well here,” he said. Key concerns raised were over the Central Plains Water scheme which could lead to intensification of agriculture and a higher nitrogen load going into Lake Ellesmere/Te Waihora. Before the 1940s it was estimated Lake Ellesmere/Te Waihora had about 800 tonnes reaching it per year.

Mr Lim told Selwyn Times to achieve 800 tonnes farmers in the Lincoln and Rolleston townships would need to move off the land. “Eight-hundred tonnes was never going to be achievable. When people make it sound like it is achievable that kind of annoys me” he said. Mr Glover told the zone committee the nitrogen load going into the lake needs to be changed. Mr Lim said he understood Mr Glover’s concerns but a lot of work went into deciding the pollution limits for dairy farmers and this was the result. A limit has be set under Selwyn Lake Ellesmere/Te Waihora plan (plan change one) for nitrogen coming from agricultural activities with dairying required to make a 30 per cent reduction. Mr Glover said he did not want to give the impression he was against dairy farming the community should not have to fork out for the mass pollution taking place. Dates and times for the seminars are yet to be confirmed. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think Environment Canterbury needs to do to reduce the levels of nitrate going into Te Waihora?

Good reason to follow tradition

FRESH: Allied Petroleum will redevelop its Sheffield fuel stop at 81 Main West Coast Rd. ​

Rebuild for Sheffield fuel stop „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding MOTORISTS looking to fuel-up their vehicles in Sheffield will have to go elsewhere with the only station in the village closing for the next 10 weeks. Allied Petroleum will demolish its existing building and redevelop its Sheffield fuel stop at 81 Main West Coast Rd. During the closure, drivers could use Allied’s Darfield fuel

stop which operates 24/7. The work that was expected to begin early last month began last week. The upgrade will involve increasing the size of the forecourt area while ensuring improved vehicle access in and out. As well as the installation of petrol and diesel, a new diesel exhaust fluid Alliedblue will be introduced. But petroleum division mar-

keting manager Brett Haldane said the cost of the project could not be revealed due to commercial sensitivity. Sheffield/Waddington Community Committee secretary Melissa Jebson said it is “tremendous” that Allied is investing into the township. Allied Petroleum is a subsidiary of the HWR Group which is a family-owned business in Invercargill.

„„ By Bridget Rutherford WHEN EMMA Yates lost her grandmother to breast cancer, she inherited her collection of china crockery. The Rolleston resident will use the collection when she hosts a Pink Ribbon afternoon tea on May 21 to raise money and awareness for the Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand. Ms Yates said her grandmother, Lerline Morris lost her battle with the disease. She was 57. ​ “The one thing that’s special to me is that the china has her initials on the bottom that she’s done in nail varnish.” Mrs Morris painted her initials so when she took it to her women’s division functions, she would know they were hers, Ms Yates said. Ms Yates, now 39, had two fibroadenoma lumps removed when she was 29 and 31, and goes for a check up every year now. She said it was so important for women of any age to be aware of the breast cancer symptoms and to get checked. “I think a lot of people think it will never happen to them.”

TRIBUTE: Emma Yates will host a Pink Ribbon afternoon tea this month with her late grandmother’s crockery to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER She said she was “very lucky”. Last year she hosted a breakfast with a friend – but this year would be her first individual event.

Lyndal Marshall

Driving force behind Waikirikiri Sport Lyndal Marshall, 44, of Rolleston, is behind the new Waikirikiri Sport club which aims to make hockey more accessible to Selwyn residents. She spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding

INNOVATIVE: Lyndal Marshall is the driving force behind Waikirikiri Sport, a club which aims to promote hockey in Selwyn.

What made you decide to set up Waikirikiri Sport? It was a combination of things that all came together at the same time. Canterbury Hockey had a hockey growth project to look at the numbers of people in the area playing hockey. Hockey New Zealand introduced a new New Zealand Post Small Sticks strategy for its junior programme. And that meant all junior games were six-aside games so they could be played on half the turf. And then the district council was developing Foster Park and the half turf facility had room there. So a combination of all those three things came together and there was demand from people in the Selwyn district looking for a place to play hockey. Up until now, people had to join clubs in the city How strong did you think hockey was in Selwyn before the club was set up? There was a demand for

registered 13 six-aside teams, which will start playing on Saturday. We have got enough players to field those teams, but we have more room for a couple more kids in different age groups to fill the squads. You must have put in a fair amount of planning to get this club set up. When did you first get the idea? Nine months we have been working on this. Most of us on the original committee have carried on, which is great. The interesting thing is, the people involved in getting the club set up haven’t necessarily got children playing hockey. They are just passionate and their efforts are helping other families not necessarily their own. We firmly believe the success for the club is through coaching so we are putting a huge emphasis on coach development to ensure the players have a good experience.

it. The club gives people the opportunity to play. Prior to Waikirikiri being formed, it is only really the parents who have played themselves or families that have made that effort to go into the city to train. So now, with having a facility in Rolleston, it becomes an opportunity for more families to fit in that training time locally. You have a good team of people running the club? We have had an amazing group. From the outset, I asked people what were their interests and passions. We have asked people to get involved in the area they are interested in. So they have a positive experience on the committee and running the club and, therefore, we can expect participants and parents to have a positive experience with the club because all the committee are happy doing jobs that they like. We have found people that like database work, we have found people that like health and

safety work. Is the club fully established yet?

hockey. What other sports have you played? Soccer when I was younger. I also played tennis and did swimming, but hockey was my Saturday sport. What do you think of Canterbury hockey as a whole? Canterbury hockey is a really well-organised sport. The club structure goes right down to year 1 (five-year-old children). You can go right through to being a top Canterbury premier league player. There is a good pathway, but you can also join at different levels. The representative teams perform really well nationwide. It is a strong province. Is there a young hockey player we should be keeping an eye on? For us, 70 per cent of our players are new to hockey so that is an unknown quantity to us. We are hoping to create some passionate hockey people. But at this stage of the club, we are involved in getting people participating and performing well. 

Did you ever look up to anyone when you were growing up? No not really. I just got out there and got involved and enjoyed it. What do you like doing in your spare time? I have a family with a husband and three kids. My husband also coaches my son’s rugby team and I am coaching one of my daughter’s hockey teams. We both help out with touch rugby in the summer. So it is just keeping the kids active and taking the boat down to the lake. Are your children interested in hockey? My two girls play hockey and my son plays rugby, but he is pretty good at hockey so hopefully he will play in our social group. Waikirikiri has got social competitions running for kids on Monday nights so, if they are already playing sport, they can give hockey a go. It gives them an opportunity to play without impacting their primary sport.

You have several plans for the club? We were given permission to be a junior club for hockey. We are looking at building to a fully affiliated club with senior teams. We have got some people involved that will be key in the senior club. We have a memorandum of understanding with Lincoln University to help us. Hockey is such a big part of your life, when did you start out? My parents played hockey. My mother was president of the Horowhenua women’s hockey association back in the day. My sister played hockey and I started playing when I was 11 and I played right through to when I had my children at the age of 30. Then I came out of retirement and played more recently before retiring again. Are you missing the game? You would like to be out there playing but it is that time to commit to the family and the club. And I kept injuring myself. What has been your biggest achievement as a hockey player? I was awarded Hockey Manawatu senior women’s player of the year in 1996 and went to Holland to represent New

Your Local Views A reader responds to last week’s Selwyn Times’ article on a proposal for a new Returned and Services Association to be established in Rolleston Lawrence Mitten – While the Templeton RSA rooms on Kirk Rd are useful, it makes a good deal of sense to move the Templeton RSA to Rolleston. Moving the Canterbury Regiment Association’s history centre from Burnham to a new RSA at Rolleston is a fantastic idea and needs further promotion. The current Christchurch RSA is failing and is struggling to make ends meet. The history centre has some fantastic displays and much memorabilia. If this project is done correctly, and I have no doubt that it will be, then Canterbury will have the first military museum combined with an RSA in the South Island. This will be an opportunity for the history centre’s curators to gather up the many thousands of items of memorabilia which are throughout the South Island. Visitors can combine a visit to the Rolleston RSA clubrooms and a visit to the Rolleston history centre, and, prior or after, a visit to the Air Force Museum of New Zealand in Wigram – a wonderful outing. The South Island, and Canterbury in particular, has paid a

heavy price in lost sons during the wars New Zealand has been involved in since the Boer War. We must preserve their memory and sacrifice. A memorial museum would go a long way to achieve this. Burnham Military Camp, which is about 6km from Rolleston will supply a number of members, both serving soldiers and returned veterans from the recent deployments from the Middle East. The New Zealand Defence Force is closing the Waiouru Military Camp shortly and the army is moving to Burnham and will become the central pivot for the army throughout New Zealand. This is a golden oppor-

tunity for the Templeton RSA. A reader responds to last week’s Selwyn Times’ article on freedom camping David Taylor – Very simple   . . . keep it black and white. Do we want second tier tourists who add little, and cost New Zealanders heavily? Simple answer is no.  Do we want high quality tourists who add value? Yes. Ban freedom campers period. Make people stay in Department of Conservation camps or normal camping grounds.   Not fair that campground owners invest and provide a

good service. Why should people camp essentially where they like. This country attracts tourists  based on our clean image and the beauty we have . . . keep this up and no one will want to come to New Zealand which will just be another trashed filthy country like so many others. If tourism is managed properly and if we invest heavily into infrastructure it can work. But typical of all governments and at local level too – they are reactive and lazy rather than be proactive and anticipate likely outcomes before they happen. Our politicians and councillors are too self-serving and interested more in keeping their jobs

than do the hard yards necessary to protect what we have, but for how long as the environment is being severely compromised all in the name of money. As a New Zealander I’m far from happy the way we are being sold out. Like the state of our waterways, it’s a disgrace. Clean and green is the biggest con. New Zealanders will soon wake up, as the will the rest of the world, that the country is a rort. We invest too much on marketing how great we are. I only wish so much effort and money went into protecting what we have for future generations . . . sustainability springs to mind.

News Glitz and glamour of the Roaring 20s IT WAS back to the Roaring 20s as Lincoln University students celebrated their hard work with a night of revelry at The Tannery. Nearly 500 students graduated from the university and dressed up for a 1920s-themed graduation ball inspired by The Great Gatsby. The event organised by the Lincoln University Students’ Association and 360 Degree Events featured live entertainment with performances from band Shadow Puppet and 1920s dancing girls. Red carpets, an automatic Polaroid printing machine, complementary drinks, cheesecake, brownies were all on the agenda for the evening. LUSA spokeswoman Julia Wills said it was one of the best events the association had organised. “It just went so smoothly and everybody had positive feedback about it . . . I think the venue itself helped,” she said. PHOTOS: LINCOLN UNIVERSITY STUDENTS’ ASSOCIATION

Make a switch to save money Did you know that by switching from a large rubbish bin, to a smaller rubbish bin and organics bin you could be rewarded for creating less waste by saving money? If you have a large 240 litre rubbish bin but barely fill the bin each week, or you fill it with mostly garden waste, you may want to consider moving to a smaller 80 litre rubbish bin and taking up a 240 litre organics bin. The annual costs for different types of rubbish, recycling and organic services are shown below. Rubbish (Red lid, optional), emptied weekly · 240 litre wheelie bin, per year $395 · 80 litre wheelie bin, per year $121 · 60 litre rubbish bag, recommended price $2 per bag Recycling (Yellow lid, compulsory), emptied fortnightly · 240 litre wheelie bin, per year $63 · Two 60 litre crates, per year $63 (for off route properties only) Organics (lime green lid, optional), emptied weekly · 240 litre wheelie bin (where service is available), per year $210 If you would like to change your bin size, you can do so by visiting www.selwyn.govt.nz/helpline or by calling 347 2800 or 318 8338.

Water treatment

upgrades underway

Council rubbish bags can be purchased from Council libraries and service centres, Rolleston, Lincoln and Halswell New World, Countdown Rolleston, Darfield and West Melton Four Square, Fresh Choice Leeston, West Melton BP and Pak n Save Hornby. Bags from Council Service centres and libraries cost $2 per bag, but the price may vary at other locations where the price is set by retailers.

Improvements to a number of Council water treatment systems are under way this year. Work to install UV treatment and filtration at Springfield has begun and is expected to be completed in August 2017. Currently the water is treated by chlorination. In Rolleston, UV treatment will be installed at Moore Street where two bores are sited and at Overbury Cresent. The majority of Rolleston’s water supplies will be treated with UV disinfection before this summer. UV treatment systems will also be installed at Sheffield and Hororata by the end of the year. The installation of UV will provide an additional level of water treatment. Dunsandel, Kirwee, Lake Coleridge, West Melton and the three bores in Izone which service much of Rolleston’s town water supply are already UV treated. This treatment method uses ultraviolet light to kill microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, molds and other pathogens. Currently, the Council uses a variety of water treatment methods for our 30 water supplies and all supplies have Water Safety Plans approved by Canterbury District Health Board which set out water treatment standards. Treatment methods used in various supplies include secure ground water (to meet New Zealand Drinking Water Standards), UV and filtration, and chlorination of the Acheron, Castle Hill, Dalethorpe, Hororata and Springfield supplies.

Explore Selwyn – Lake Coleridge township Lake Coleridge is one of Selwyn’s hidden spots which offers spectacular views of the mountains on your way there and great views of the Rakaia River. A short walk begins from a lookout point over the Rakaia River. A pathway follows the course of the tailrace through bush to reach the Lake Coleridge Power Station. The building was New Zealand’s first large power station and was built between 1911 and 1914. The imposing hydo-electric station provided all of Christchurch’s power in the early twentieth century. When you reach the station you can either return back along the path or walk through the village and turn back down Kowai Road. Another walking option in the village is to visit the Lake Coleridge Arbouretum which is a 1km, 20 minute walk accessible from Hummock Hill Road. The village is located around 3km from the lake which offers more walking and sightseeing opportunities.

Difficulty: Easy. Not suitable for buggies, wheelchairs or pre-school children as the path is located next to the river bank which has a steep cliff

If you have lodged a building consent yourself you can check its progress online using the AlphaOne system. Your construction firm or builder can monitor this for you if they have lodged the consent on your behalf. For any assistance with this contact our Building Advisory Team on bca@selwyn.govt.nz.

Once your consent has been issued and building work is underway please ensure that your contractors only book an inspection when they are fully ready for it to be undertaken. This will avoid a reinspection being required and save you additional costs. For more details of what our team check at each inspection type please refer to the inspection prompt sheets which can be located at www.selwyn.govt.nz/buildinginformation.

How to get there: To access the lookout walk you can park outside the Lake Coleridge cemetery and walk towards the gorge. Lake Coleridge is located off Coleridge Road from State Highway 77 and is around 1 hour, 15 minutes from Rolleston or 50 minutes from Darfield.

CC080517

While there appears to be a slowdown in building activity in some parts of the country, Selwyn is still experiencing high volumes of building consent applications. Applications received in the last couple of months are comparable to the volumes experienced in 2014. Due to the high volumes, consent processing timeframes have pushed out beyond what customers have become accustomed to. Additional resources have been engaged to help with consent processing to bring the timeframes back to our usual standard as quickly as possible.

When lodging your application please ensure that your application has all relevant information supplied. Our website has two checklists to assist you – a residential and a commercial and industrial checklist. These are available online at www.selwyn.govt. nz/buildingforms.

Time/Distance: 20 minutes, just over 1 km.

WORLD STAGE: Jacob Douglas (front) has raced his way to Italy after claiming a national title last month.

Young kart racer dreams of formula one „„ By Gordon Findlater LINCOLN’S JACOB Douglas will take on the world’s best in October as he takes the next step in his dream of driving in formula one. Jacob, 11, started racing just three years ago and has now secured his spot at the International Rok Cup finals in Italy by dominating at the Kartsport NZ National Sprint Championships in Invercargill last month.

He won the Vortex Mini ROK class, winning his heat races before going onto win the final by more than four seconds. “The competition was pretty stiff down there with a lot of good drivers,” said Jacob. He previously raced motorcycles but after spending a day at the track with his father in 2014 he decided it was time to sell the bike after finding his passion on four wheels. “We were hopeful that we

SPORTS would win, we knew we had a fair chance and we had trained for all scenarios. Jacob had broken the lap record at the track only weeks before so we also knew we were fast,” said Jacob’s father Craig Douglas. Trained by Matthew Hamilton

of WKS Kartstore and Tiffany Chittenden, Douglas is a boy who wants to go places. He lives and breathes motor racing and is passionate about making his mark on a world stage. Jacob trains at the KartSport Canterbury track on the corner of Carrs and Wigram Rds up to four times a week. His dedication to chasing the formula one dream even involves occasionally taking time out of school. “I don’t think they particularly

Backyard critters

SELWYN TIMES

South African mantis invades Lincoln 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 THE SPRINGBOKS are invading Lincoln, but not the rugby variety. The South African praying mantis (miomantis caffra) is invading New Zealand and has reached Lincoln as it disperses south. The invader is thought to have arrived in Auckland around 1978 and is spreading north to south. Trouble is, the bok mantis appears to be eating our native species, orthodera novaezealandiae, and there are serious concerns that our native species is being displaced. Our native males are being attracted to the female bok mantis only to be eaten. So how do you tell the difference between the two

TAKING OVER: The South African praying mantis (miomantis caffra) has reached Lincoln and is eating native species. ​

mantis species? Our native mantis has a large blue-purple dot on the inside of its forelegs and the exotic bok

mantis doesn’t. The second distinguishing feature is the width of the neck of the two species.

The native mantis has a wide neck close to the width of its body, whereas the bok mantis has a neck markedly narrower

than its head. Like the adults, the egg cases (ootheca) also look quite different between the species. The native egg cases are brown in colour and have a figure of 888888-pattern when looking from above. When these are freshly laid (usually in autumn), the holes have a white waxy covering that seals the eggs inside. When the young mantis’ hatch in spring, the white seal is broken, exposing the 888888 holes. The bok ootheca looks like a mini meringue and has a tapered end. Should we be concerned about this invasion? Well, Auckland entomologist Greg Holwell thinks so. He has been studying the ecology of the two species for 10 years and has noticed a dramatic increase in the bok mantis at the expense of our native one.

More to Rarotonga than the beaches „„ By Mike Yardley PLANNING an escape to Rarotonga? Tear yourself away from the beach to dig a little deeper at the roots of the island. Venture along the back road and enter a timeless world of free-range harmony in abundance. On my various forays along the back road, I feasted on freshlyplucked pawpaw, mango, guava, bananas and star-fruit, bursting from the roadside trees. Scenically insatiable, I marvelled at the colourfully-painted hinterland homes and the dense plantations, bracketed by Rarotonga’s serrated peaks which exude a Jurassic Park aura. There are many ways to get a flavour for Rarotonga’s vast green heart, including taking a ride with the recently launched Tik-e Tours. These tropical three-wheeler luxury tuk-tuk limousines are fully electric, so unlike the racket they make on the streets of Bangkok, these beauties will glide you around Rarotonga’s ravishing interior in virtual silence. My driver/guide was a worldly elder called Mata, a natural and charismatic raconteur. Throughout my tour, every passer-by warmly waved out to Mata, or stopped to chat. One chap we talked to was busy cultivating noni fruit by hand. Lauded by locals for centuries for its numerous health benefits, noni juice has taken the world by storm and is the Cook Islands’ No 1 agricultural export product. My two-hour tour traversed a slew of insights, including stops at

ancient marae sites, a rendezvous with Government House, the magnificently carved new war memorial in honour of the 500 local soldiers who fought in World War 1, Tinomana Palace and the sacred Great Migration site of Avana Passage. Operating for just over a year, the people behind Tik-e Tours are Cook Islander Tania Farman and her husband, Karl, who have swapped corporate life in Auckland for the Rarotongan lifestyle, while injecting an innovative and eco-friendly tourism product into the mix. www.tik-etours.com For more heartland hi-jinks I jumped behind the wheel of a Rarotonga Buggy Tour. These grunty off-road vehicles are a cross between a kart and a beach buggy, highly manoeuvrable and hardy. They’re even kitted out with roll cages if it all goes badly wrong. These wildly popular buggy tours have been making quite a

splash for two years. Our conga line of yellow buggies looked like a slithering giant snake. The biggest mud pits awaited us at the site of ill-fated and abandoned Sheraton Hotel development, where the grounds have been reworked as an off-road buggy track, which is where I got utterly splattered in mud, as we ripped up and down the mounds of the track. Our touring route also romped into the hinterland and the Turangi Valley, thickly carpeted with tropical rainforest. Seriously good fun if you like to get down and dirty. www.rarobuggytours. com Swathed in jungle-like tropical foliage, the environmentallyfriendly embrace of Ikurangi EcoRetreat is a winning new roost in Rarotonga. Established by Luana and Matt Scowcroft last year, this thoughtfully created offering treads a very light footprint. You’ll notice the

sustainability elements wherever you turn. The toilets are self-composting, the beautiful toiletries by Ashley & Co are studiously organic, the natural and biodegradable cleaning products, a sustainable waste management system, all materials are sustainably sourced and there’s free use of bicycles to go exploring. Being uber-boutique, the experience is absolutely distinctive, personalised and ultra-attentive. Luana says: “We think of it as a unique combination of the allure of a safari with the romance of the South Seas, where luxury meets sustainability.” I loved sleeping in my luxury safari tent, stunningly furnished, and perched on a deck to allow airflow. A tropical breakfast was delivered to my deck each morning and I adored the locally-roasted, fair trade plunger coffee. I awoke each morning to the

“Tail of the Sky,” Mt Ikurangi, gilded in the glow of the rising Rarotongan sun, and I revelled in the novelty of showering in the open-air bathroom, flanked by swaying palms and bountiful banana trees.

FAST FACTS

•Set amid the bountiful hinterland beauty, but just minutes from the beach, Ikurangi Eco-Resort is a masterclass in sustainable hospitality in paradise. Five per cent of Ikurangi Eco Retreat profits go to local conservation initiatives. www.ikurangi.com I do love how Rarotonga is replete with colourful roadside stalls brimming with freshly picked produce and alluring treats, like organic fruit ice cream. They directly help villagers supplement their incomes. It’s a great way to give back. www.feelraro.co.nz

Latest Christchurch news at www.

Rid your lawn of nasty weed WHAT EXACTLY is a weed? Definitions abound, but a weed is generally considered to be a plant that’s growing where it isn’t wanted. And, as winter draws near to an end, it often seems that the weeds are about to take over the entire garden. Onehunga weed, which usually causes problems in lawns, is one of the weeds you’ll find starting to develop at this time of year. Onehunga weed is a soft, ferny-leafed plant that only reveals the nasty side of its nature when it produces its sharply-barbed seeds. These can make walking on the lawn in bare feet an utter misery. You can remove Onehunga weed with what’s called a selective weedkiller but, remember, if the weed has already formed its spiky seeds, it’s sure to re-appear next year. Make a note to begin control earlier next season. Selective herbicides cleverly remove the non-grass weeds from the lawn, without damaging the grass. However, it’s vitally important

to read the label and carefully follow the instructions. Tooheavy applications will burn the grass. Many other lawn weeds such as clover, dandelions, thistles and capeweed – can also be removed with a selective weedkiller. Weeds in garden beds can be removed using a glyphosate herbicide. Glyphosate is non-selective, which means it will kill any plant material it contacts. This, obviously, means it must be applied with great care. Fortunately, though, it doesn’t leave residues in the soil.

PROBLEM: Don’t let Onehunga weed take root in your lawn.

Beautiful broad beans „„ By Henri Ham I KNOW it’s easy and not too expensive to buy broad beans at the supermarket, but I enjoy eating them fresh from the garden. They taste great and it’s nice knowing exactly what’s taken place during the growing process. Broad beans are one of my favourite varieties to grow. Like most other vegetables, you can grow broad beans from seed (actually it’s the bean itself). But I recommend growing from seedlings. Doing this shortens the time before harvest (around six less weeks) but, more importantly, takes out a lot of the hard work. Once the root systems are well formed (yet still separate from each other), almost guaranteed they will grow well. Once you’ve got your seedlings, you need to find somewhere to grow them. I like to grow mine in a raised vegetable garden, but they also grow well in pots. Make sure it’s full sun or partial shade where you plant. Broad beans are pollinated by bees, so it’s helpful to grow them near a bee-friendly plant like lavender, rosemary or cornflowers. It pays to check the pH level

FRESH: Broad beans like full sun or just partial shade.

of your soil. Broad beans like the soil to be around 5.5 to 6.5pH. Not sure what the pH level of your soil is? Most garden centres sell kits, alternatively there are also companies which will test your soil for a small fee. If the pH level of your soil could go higher, try adding a little bit of lime from your local garden centre. If you’re not sure of the pH level, it wouldn’t hurt to add a little bit of lime anyway. Then simply dig a little hole and plant each seedling around 15cm apart in rows approximate-

ly 30cm apart. Once the plants are around 1m you can stake them individually but I prefer to put a stake at either end of the rows and loop a big piece of string around the whole lot to keep them growing together. Your plants will lean against each other and grow across the ground. The seedlings will take around eight to 12 weeks from planting to produce beans ready for harvesting. Harvest the beans when the pods are around 75-100mm.

NOW IS a good time to get those fruit trees planted. Here are some tips: •Dig a hole that is slightly deeper than the root depth and which allows for 20cm clearance around the roots. •Mix some compost with the soil in the base of the hole, then place the tree and slow release fertiliser in the hole so that the graft is above soil level. •Create a small mound at the base of the hole and spread the

Feeding pets the right food helps keep them healthy and in good condition. “Cats and dogs are carnivores, born to eat real meat and not dog biscuits that are full of grains,” says Bernie owner of Real Petfood in Rolleston. Real Petfood sells a wide range of top quality pet meat products, all at extremely competitive prices. Their meat is absolutely natural with no additives, preservatives or fillers whether fresh or frozen raw mutton, beef, horse, chicken or rabbit. They have pet mince, steak pieces, puppy mixes, meaty bones, tripe and brisket bones. The birds are not forgotten either, with a selection of seed mixes available, including wild bird seed and bird feeders. There are also mixes for pet guinea pigs, rats and mice and a small selection of animal paraphernalia. Real Petfood’s dog mixes of beef, horse and mutton are very popular. These come in a range of sizes, from 500gram bags through to 25kg lots of free flow bags. “Horse meat is non-allergenic so vets often prescribe it for dogs that react to beef,” explains Bernie who also advises that only raw mutton must be frozen before feeding to a dog. Real Petfood sources its meat from local farmers and processes it in their own

abattoir, ensuring fresh meat each day. Their frozen free-flow packs offer convenience. Just take out what you need and defrost in a microwave when you get home; leaving a meaty bone to entertain the dog while away at work. Real Petfood has five staff sourcing, processing and selling pet meat in handy sized packs that are available direct to customers from their Rolleston outlet with free delivery available to customers (in and around Rolleston) who spend over $70. You will also be able to order on-line soon. Real Petfood can be found at shop 4, 855 Jones Road in Rolleston, across from Jones Road Auto. To call them, phone 347 0626; or for specialist questions on pet food, call Bernie on 0274 375 114 or email: bahutton@xtra.co.nz.

Driven Mitsubishi gives ASX a fresh face „„ By Ross Kiddie MITSUBISHI Motors New Zealand has been busy over the last 12 months. A raft of facelifted models has landed, a new Outlander, Mirage and ASX are now on dealers’ showroom floors. Each has a significantly different appearance, and I’ve covered the changes in recent evaluations. The last in my schedule to drive was the ASX, an acronym for active smart crossover, and while the changes aren’t major they certainly provide a fresher exterior look, giving it more of a Mitsubishi family appearance. The interior has enhanced specification features and a bit of tidy up to make it more comfortable, it also gets extra technical gadgets to make it more functional and user-friendly. That along with a revised lineup – now there are only four models – the ASX is destined to be a strong competitor in the mid-size sport utility vehicle market, landing from just $36,690. The test car was the VRX, twowheel-drive, 2-litre at $40,590. Petrol-power will get you into front-wheel drive only; if you want four-wheel-drive you are locked into the 2.3-litre diesel variants listing at $41,990 and $45,990 (VRX).

• Price – Mitsubishi ASX VRX, $40,590 • Dimensions – Length, 4355mm; width, 1810mm; height, 1640mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, front-wheel-drive, 1998cc, 112kW, 200Nm, continuously variable automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 9.9sec • Fuel usage – 7.4l/100km

MITSUBISHI ASX: Fresh look with a Mitsubishi family appearance.

The ASX follows in the wheel tracks of the SUV Outlander and takes on board many of the elements which have made it so successful, albeit in a smaller size. In VRX specification the level of fitment sits towards high. For that money it comes well equipped with full leather trim and heated front seats, dash-mounted display screen with rear view reversing camera, keyless entry and ignition, cruise control, comprehensive trip computer, and all the safety kit to earn it a five-star Australasian New Car Assessment Program safety rating. Under the bonnet lies a 1998cc, 16-valve, twin-camshaft engine. It is much the same unit which powers Lancer and stands out

for its relatively high power output (112kW) and strength low down, courtesy of a 200Nm torque figure. Together the power and torque outputs combine to provide strong mid-range performance, easily cutting out a 120km/h from 80km/h overtaking time in 6sec. For the record, it will also launch from a standstill to 100km/h in 9.9sec. Just like the Lancer, the ASX drives out of a six-step continuously variable transmission. That’s no surprise, Mitsubishi have embraced CVT transmission and it has worked well with Outlander and Lancer. In the ASX it is equally as efficient, taking the load off the engine and helping promote respectable fuel

usage results. In the VRX variant, steering wheel-mounted paddles provide the driver with a manual sequential function. They will lock the transmission into six pre-set gearing steps to provide optimum performance and engine braking on hill descent. Interaction between the engine and gearbox is constantly reactive, engine response is crisp, yet it is docile and ambles along at city speeds working the lower part of the rev band to meet fuel efficiency expectation. According to Mitsubishi, the ASX in two-wheel-drive form will return a combined cycle average of 7.4-litres per 100km (38mpg). My time with the test car constantly listed around 10l/100km (28mpg) with a

31

7l/100km (35mpg) figure available at a constant 100km/h in the tallest part of the gearing (engine speed 1800rpm). They are satisfactory figures and don’t come at the cost of engine performance. The ASX feels lively beneath the throttle and will respond to accelerator request instantly as the power is gathered up by the CVT belt. I took the test car inland between the two gorge bridges. The piece of road in-between provides a good mix of corners, the ASX isn’t bothered when placed quickly into a bend, the suspension soaks up uneven road surfaces and gravitational movement is arrested smoothly. When the ASX is presented with a bit of a handling challenge not only does it cope capably, it imparts a comfortable in-cabin sensation for the occupants. The seats are well formed, especially the rears which have had a bit of an upgrade, also the entire construction technique doesn’t jeopardise the SUV concept. Space on board isn’t overwhelming but it is adequate, for three in the rear it’s no squeeze, each has just the right amount of leg and shoulder room. The ASX is there for those who want to be part of the SUV/ crossover experience, and it will fulfil that role admirably.

Academic results are consistently high with many students gaining Excellence and Merit Endorsements and Scholarships. In 2016 we were the top Decile 8, state co-educational school for NCEA Level 2 achievement. The College has a strong pastoral support system that is based around four Whanau groups: Rata, Rimu, Kowhai and Totara. Class sizes in Years 7 to 10 are usually in the mid-twenties while senior classes are often much smaller. Ellesmere College occupies a spacious seven hectare site that includes facilities for cricket, athletics, tennis, netball, rugby and football. The buildings consist of numerous classrooms together with

specialist rooms for teaching science, agriculture, technology, art, music, drama, a full sized gymnasium, a modern library and we have currently embarked on an exciting Master Plan rebuild programme. Ellesmere College is an inclusive school and aims to meet the learning needs of all students.

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

Sizing up a house design Those looking to build a new home are likely to tour show homes, checking features, noting the number of rooms and spaciousness of each, and making mental comparisons with their existing living quarters and what they perceive they will need in their home. There is no one ideal house size. Determining square metre size depends on one’s stage in the family life cycle and lifestyle. Young couples, older people downsizing and those living on their own may want smaller homes whereas families often seek space. Visiting show homes is a good way to get a spatial impression. Many building companies have more than one show home. This allows them to demonstrate the range of work they do, the quality of their workmanship, and to feature house designs they have on their books. These homes also provide examples of the features that can be incorporated into a new home. Show homes vary in size. Some are less than 200 square metres, others may be around 210m², 220m² or closer to 240m². For example, Artisan Homes’ Prebbleton show home is 246m² and offers innovative and energy efficient ideas. The Faringdon line-up of show homes offers comparison with homes of 184m² or 211m². Other show homes can be found at Lincoln’s Te Whāriki and Flemington subdivisions, in Prebbleton, as well as in

Levi Park and Goulds Road in Rolleston. A smaller home may not always feel less spacious. It depends on design and layout. A larger home may offer the opportunity for extra living area in a separate lounge, a laundry room inside the house rather than in the garage, wider entry and hallways, and larger rooms overall. Extra features such as walk-in pantries, ensuites and walk-in robes in the main bedroom, and additional storage cupboards can also be accommodated as the square metres increase. Building smaller will not necessarily equate to a significantly cheaper price. While building companies work on a square metre build figure, certain costs are still incurred such as for the drain laying, plumbing, kitchen, bathroom, toilet, and garage with the latter less costly to build. Adding extra bathrooms and the like will add more to the final price however, if the square metres are taken up in living and bedroom space or a wider hallway then the cost is proportionately less. Higher specified features will certainly increase the cost of the build. Making comparisons in both size and features when viewing show homes and house designs will help you determine the size of home to build. Weigh your needs and wants against any budgetary constraints, ensuring you have all the facts and a clear idea of costs before making your final decision.

Mini makeover gives living areas a lift Don’t let heading into winter give you the blues. Think of all the things you love about the cooler seasons and give your home a mini-makeover to make it the comfortable, warm and welcoming home you desire. Revamping your living and dining areas will give your lived-in spaces a fresh new feel. Unlike a renovation, a revamp (or face lift) need not involve a huge financial outlay. In fact it is an extremely budgetfriendly way of giving your rooms a new look as you can add and subtract pieces as the pay packet allows. Moving slowly over the next couple of months is an advantage. If you don’t, after

all, like that bright pink cushion you had planned to build your new look around, you can change direction without having spent too much money. Another advantage of moving slowly to build your new look is the time it allows you to hunt for just the right pieces, or wait for the sales to offer you bargains. Also have a look around your home for items you could recover, paint or, with a little tweaking, find new purpose for. Start your facelift by deciding what sort of look you’re going to aim for. Browse magazines and the internet for ideas, check paint colour charts for the latest colour options. Visit furnishing stores

and take note of the different display areas how do they balance colour and texture? Then find an item you would like to build your new look around. This could be a treasure you’ve had for a while or something that you covet and have spotted in a shop. Your next step is to sit down with pencil & paper & plan. List what items can be changed and how, and what can’t. Think colour, shades and tones and complementary colours, think texture, think pattern, think outside the square. Think fabric, wood, plastic, old and new. That comfy old chair doesn’t need to be

replaced. Buy some furnishing fabric and recover it (or have it recovered).What items have other family members put aside because they no longer need them but they’re ‘too good to throw out’? Once you’ve got some sort of plan mapped out you can start work on creating your new look. Spend time browsing the shops to see what is available in your chosen colour - candles, photo frames, vases, pot plant holders, wallpaper, fabric, large items and small.

Looking for a property,

what really counts? You are in the market for a new property, scrolling the Internet, examining properties for sale and zeroing in on those with potential. They might be in locations that offer cheaper land, larger houses, or convenience to work or school. You may have visited show homes and open homes becoming confused, overwhelmed or swept away with emotional factors like having everything new, or extra features such as three car garaging. To be happy with your choice, list the features that you need, considering: • Family space – Is there room for the children to play indoors and for television and entertainment units? Should this be open plan or separated? • Kitchen – What needs to be in your kitchen? How serious are you about a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim or something that offers a practical solution to the way you use your kitchen? • Bedroom sizes – What are optimum sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate to slightly lower building costs while extra space can be useful. When looking at existing homes, consider whether the size of each bedroom is sufficient. • Garaging – A standard double garage once two cars are parked there offers little space for the toys. What toys do you have and could they live with the lawnmower in a garden shed, a cheaper option to three car garaging? If the budget allows and a larger garage with workshop is important, make it a selection priority. • Size of land – Lifestyle properties offer space for children, pets, hobbies, an expansive

garden and perhaps a home-run business but they require work so are not for everyone and a compact section might be more sensible if a tight budget or busy lifestyle. • Bathrooms – Second and third bathrooms are great in homes with teenagers and a wet shower room is ideal for young children. A bath might be fashionable though is often not used and its absence could mean a more spacious bathroom. • Laundry – Would a laundry in the garage do the job? • Storage – How much storage do you need? Weigh up what can truly be stored in the garage once vehicles are in, a preference in winter. Garages vary in size so check the size to ensure your vehicles will fit. Look also at where else the house offers storage capacity such as in hall cupboards, a large hot water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes (check their width and depth), walk-in robe, attic storage trusses, as well as the potential for hooks and shelving in the garage for bikes, tools, garden equipment and even kayaks. • Off-street parking – How many vehicles can be parked on the driveway? Will this space be sufficient? • Garden - Is there sufficient space for your children to play or for entertaining? A checklist will allow you to determine what will suit your needs, the point of the exercise, saving you time looking at properties or potential house designs while assisting you to decide whether to buy a new or existing home with both options having advantages and disadvantages.
