„„ By Gabrielle Stuart A TWO-WEEK trip to a United States hospital may mean the chance of a normal life for West Melton schoolgirl Maddie Collins – but it comes at a cost. The cost of a kidney replacement at The John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore was initially estimated at about $350,000, but is now expected to cost more than $700,000. The 13-yearold and her family spent two weeks there being tested to see if the treatment was possible and if any of their kidneys would match and could be donated. •Turn to page 4

Vehicles can be clamped says bar owner „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A NEW bar and cafe is adamant it can clamp or tow away non-customers’ vehicles, even though the district council says the matter is unresolved. The Black Door Bar and Eatery opens in Lincoln on Friday on the site of the old Tea House on Robert St. Clamping and tow away signs appeared several weeks ago covering five parallel car parks outside the bar and seven outside the adjacent Lincoln Village Pre-School and Nursery. Two of the signs outside the nursery have been removed in

the past week. But the district council is still considering legal advice over whether the signage complies with the resource consent. Black Door owner Anita Alder has not been responding to questions from the Selwyn Times about the issue. But she has stated its case on the Black Door’s Facebook page after a post over the issue. Ms Alder said there was a resource consent on the 12 car parks that are registered to 6 Robert St for the use of the business. •Turn to page 7 FRD31023-90x266

Tuesday July 18 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

JUST WHEN Maddie Collins and her family thought things couldn’t get any worse, they received more bad news during their trip to the United States. Treatment for the West Melton teenager for kidney replacement and treatment has now jumped from $350,000 to $750,000 as we reveal on page 1. That’s one heck of a mountain to climb. Maddie and her family spent two weeks in Baltimore being tested to see if the treatment was possible and if any of their kidneys would match and could be donated. They are still waiting on the test results. And more today on the ongoing wheel clamping saga in Lincoln (see page 1). The district council is saying little, but the Black Door owner has opened up on that very public forum – Facebook. – Barry Clarke

News Major plans for tavern site „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding PLANS FOR a major redevelopment at the Prebbleton Tavern site are still in the pipeline. It has been nearly six months since an application for resource consent to develop a complex involving a motel, two cinemas, retail, offices, health care services, and food and beverage outlets was lodged with the district council. THe Malcolm Lyall application was made by Prebbleton Hotel Ltd. THe new development would be located at the 7000m2 hotel site on the corner of Springs Rd and Tosswill Rds. THe district council asked for more details about the plan several months ago. But the application process was then put on hold by Prebbleton Hotel Ltd, a district council spokesman told the Selwyn Times last week. Prebbleton Hotel Ltd spokesman Shannon Gilmore,

BIG CHANGES: Major redevelopments for the Prebbleton Tavern site are on its way. PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

who manages the tavern, would not comment to the Selwyn Times. Plans submitted to the district council show the development would have a 34 single room motel complex, and a 50-seat and 54-seat cinema. A total of 107 car parks and 40 cycle parks would be provided along with two access ways to the area. THe township is expected to grow by an additional 1295 households by 2041. THe Prebbleton Structure Plan, adopted by the district council,

identifies more infrastructure and community facilities are needed to support the projected growth. THe application said it sought to retain the Prebbleton Tavern on site which was recognised as a focal point in the township. THe tavern, established in 1868, is recognised as one of two of the most prominent historic buildings in the township. Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall said while he welcomes the redevelopment, he had concerns

the owners may be trying to put too much on one site. “I just hope whatever they do is architecturally in context with the building and the heritage of Prebbleton,” he said. THe Tosswill Rd site has been used for a variety of industrial type activities in the past. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think a major redevelopment at the Prebbleton Tavern will be good for the township?

In Brief GRAFFITI STATISTICS Seven incidents of graffiti have been reported to the district council this year. One incident was reported in Rolleston, two in Lincoln, two on Main South Rd, one in Prebbleton and one in Windwhistle. The tags were on toilet blocks, speed signs, sheds and bus stops. A district council spokesman said not all graffiti incidents are necessarily reported. Some incidents may have been reported to police or Orion for tagged power boxes. SPEED WARNING Police are warning drivers caught driving at excess speeds through road works will have their licence suspended for 28 days if they are 40km/h over the limit. A temporary speed limit of 60km/h is in place for road works on the Main South Rd, Rolleston. Sergeant Alex Pickover said police have caught drivers clocking more than 90km/h through the roadworks with one person doing 105km/h. NEW ASB BRANCH Lincoln’s ASB branch will open at its new site on Gerald St, next to the police station on Monday. The bank’s current lease at William St has expired. Customer service officer Melanie Bhana said the branch will have the same number of staff as it does now.

Getting to the toilets at Tai Tapu a mission

TOUGH: Maddie has to have dialysis every night, and regularly has to visit Starship Children’s Hospital for treatment.

Maddie’s treatment jumps to $750,000 •From page 1 They are still waiting on the test results. This year, Maddie was told the daily dialysis treatment she is on has put so much strain on her heart, she is at risk of a heart attack while she stays on it – making the need for a kidney transplant more urgent. Her mother, Sarah Manson Collins, said the family was doing their best to stay positive. She said they could get a call from the hospital at any point to say they had found a kidney that was a match for Maddie, so they had to be ready to fly back to the United States at short notice. But she said Maddie was glad to be home again.

SELWYN TIMES

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

“She’s just happy to be back with her horses,” she said. The treatment offered in the United States, which is not available in New Zealand, makes it less likely Maddie’s body will reject a donated kidney, even if it is not a perfect match. Maddie’s father, Adam Collins, donated one of his kidneys to her in 2012, but her body rejected it. Givealittle pages have already raised more than $90,000 for Maddie, and tickets for a fundraising night later this month have already sold out. Donated items, including artwork and signed sports jerseys, are being auctioned on TradeMe as a fundraiser under the user name maddieauction.

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding LOCATING THE Tai Tapu public toilets has turned into a mission for visitors travelling through the township. Confusing signage is making it difficult for travellers to track down the recently upgraded public toilets at the Rhodes Domain off the Old Tai Tapu Rd. The trouble begins when motorists first see a standard toilet sign located on State Highway 75 at the intersection of the Old Tai Tapu Rd and Lincoln Tai Tapu Rd. The sign points towards The Store located at 687 Christchurch Akaroa Rd rather than the Old Tai Tapu Rd. It is located about 1.6km from the toilets and no sign is in place at the domain. Tai Tapu Library chairman Robert White can guarantee every time his volunteer-run library is open, three quarters of people who come in to see him will ask about the toilets. The Store duty manager Hayley Jensen said the cafe gets between six to 12 people a week

PROBLEMATIC: A sign on State Highway 75 has left visitors to Tai Tapu confused.

asking where the toilets are. “Happens all the time, we

don’t mind,” she said. Mr White has brought the issue of a sign needing to be at the domain up with the district council and the Tai Tapu Community Committee before. He said he would like additional toilet signs in the township clearly worded where the toilets are located. “It is such a simple, easy thing to do and it just defies logic so I thought I would give them a stir-up,” he said. Committee chairman Gerald Carter said the signage issue was brought up at its last meeting with district councillor Grant Miller and is being pursued. New public toilets are planned to be included in the Tai Tapu community centre at the Rhodes park. Cr Miller said the issue should be able to be easily resolved. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the signage for the location of the Tai Tapu toilets is confusing?

Council funding policy under fire „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding PLANS TO have the district council increase its standard funding for the rebuild of the Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall has drawn criticism over its policy on funding of community centres. The district council approved a decision to increase its original funding of $167,788 to $417,697 for the hall’s rebuild at its meeting last Mark Alexander Wednesday.  Dedicated to commemorating the 14 Lakeside men who lost their lives in World War 1, the original hall was damaged beyond repair in the February 22, 2011, earthquake.  The new hall is estimated to cost $1,670,788. A presentation was made by professor Ian Lochhead on the hall’s importance to the community and was accompanied by the hall management committee.  The new facility to be located on Harts Rd will include a multipurpose hall, a courtyard, kitchen and bar, storage, bathrooms and a service room. 

REBUILD: Plans showing the exterior of the Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall from the courtyard and an interior view of the “long room.”

Professor Lochhead said the hall was sorely missed by the community as it was a key place for major events. Nearly $50,000 had already been raised already by the community.  But a debate was ignited at the meeting over the district council’s lack of consultation with the community over the funding boost.  At the meeting, district councillor Mark Alexander said the funding should have been in the Annual Plan 2017/2018 consultation.  “I am very disappointed that

one month after the adoption of the Annual Plan we are asked to increase the council subsidy for this building,” he said. Cr Alexander and Cr Watson did not vote for the increase. Hall Management Committee chairman Dennis Carter said if the funding was not increased it would struggle and the court yard may need to be cut from the project.  “It would be an embarrassment to the district council and to us,” he said.  Professor Lochhead said a firm commitment was made by the district council to reinstate the

hall when consent was granted for demolition in 2013. The district council’s general practice is to provide a grant of 10 per cent towards the capital cost of new community centres rather than the 25 per cent it will for the Lakeside hall.  Increased funding on an  average of 27 per cent granted for the West Melton, Tai Tapu and Dunsandel community centres recently. As part of the draft Long-Term Plan 2018-2019 consultation is to be held on the introduction of a new district-wide rate for community centres and halls.  

District councillor Pat McEvedy said Lakeside had the right to rebuild their community. Said district councillor Grant Miller: “I think we have got ourselves to blame for this situation . . . now more than ever we need a district-wide policy.” A building and resource consent for the building will be lodged next month with plans for it to be completed by August 2018. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the plans to rebuild the Lakeside Soldiers Memorial Hall?

Team for new Lincoln school „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A SCHOOL principal, holiday programme business owner and a senior lecturer are part of the team behind the establishment of a new school in Lincoln. Appointed by the Ministry of Education, the establishment board has been meeting weekly since May to plan the opening of the new Lincoln school in early 2019. Former property lawyer Suzy Petersen is chairwoman of the establishment board while Busy Bumbles owner Rebecca Scott is deputy. Ladbrooks Primary School principal Penny O’Brien, Lincoln University senior lecturer Amanda Black, Halswell Primary School Louise Ponce also make up the board. The school, currently known as Lincoln South Primary, will be built in two stages. Stage one of the $14 million project will cater for 450 students with a final roll of 700 when stage two is completed. While a site is yet to be signed off, it will be situated on the south side of the Lincoln township. It will be a full primary school for year 1 to 8 pupils. An official name for the school

ENFORCEMENT: The owner of the Black Door Bar and Eatery is adamant enforcement will be applied if unauthorised vehicles park in its car parks.

is yet to be established. Establishment board chairwoman Suzy Petersen, said the vision of the school is yet to be finalised with further consultation with the community planned over the next few months. The first round of consultation over the school was held in August last year.

“I am relatively new to the community and I am excited to get involved . . . hopefully my wee baby girl will go to the primary school when she is at school age,” Mrs Petersen said. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think Lincoln needs more primary schools? Email your views to georgia.oconnor@ starmedia.kiwi

•From page 1 Ms Alder responded on Facebook: “At present we have residents ignoring both ours and the district council’s signage and using them as private parks, not very cool really.” She said the district council was “gearing up for enforcement across the board”. “Enforcement will apply . . . we are just working through how and by whom,” she said. She was working with the district council to determine whether the district council or Black Door would enforce restrictions.

Yesterday, district council environmental service manager Tim Harris would not comment on Ms Alder’s Facebook response about “across the board enforcement”. He also would not discuss the clamping and tow away issue. “The Selwyn District Council is speaking directly with the owner of the business to resolve this issue,” he said. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the wheelclamping signage?

LINCOLN IS the first fire brigade in the country to have a new appliance featuring the new Fire and Emergency New Zealand branding. The new Iveco vehicle replaces the existing model which is set up as the primary appliance to respond to motor vehicle crashes and rescues. The new branding for the appliance named LINC417 will reflect the significant change to fire and emergency management throughout the country. Fire and Emergency New Zealand, an amalgamation of the New Zealand Fire Service, the National Rural Fire Authority, 12 enlarged rural fire districts and 26 territorial authority rural fire authorities became an amalgamated organisation at the start of July. Lincoln’s chief fire officer Jeremy Greenwood said the new appliance continues a long tradition of Lincoln firefighters having modern and effective equipment to protect the local community. “It’s always a special occasion to get a new appliance. Firefighters rely on their equipment as well as their teammates to get

the job done efficiently and effectively and we’re very fortunate to be able to utilise the newest gear. Mr Greenwood said residents will soon get used to seeing the new look on the appliance as it operates through the area. The new appliance was delivered to the station in early July by Canterbury area commander Dave Berry who

said he was delighted the first appliance with the new branding was supplied to a local brigade. “Lincoln is one of the busiest volunteer fire brigades in Canterbury and the new appliance will be well utilised in this fast growing part of the region,” he said. Mr Berry said it can attend a variety of incidents. He said it will respond to

vehicle crashes and therefore carries significant specialist equipment as well as medical supplies. The appliance also contains a large assortment of firefighting equipment and carries up to 1300-litres of water. Existing Lincoln appliances and support vehicles will be re-branded over upcoming months.

News Cup to honour football great FOOTBALL great Steve Sumner will be remembered at the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018, with teams to play for a trophy in his name. The inaugural Steve Sumner Cup will be unveiled at the week-long Golden Oldies World Football Festival, as part of the overall event that will run throughout April. Golden Oldies Football manager for the event and former All Whites captain, Earle Thomas, said it was a privilege to be the first event to honour Sumner’s contribution to football. “We are extremely grateful to Steve’s family for allowing us to name the cup for the first division competition at Golden Oldies World Football Festival in his honour.” Sumner captained the All Whites to their first ever world cup finals appearance in Spain in 1982, and was synonymous with Christchurch United in the 1970s and 80s. He died in February after a long battle with prostate cancer. “The Sumner family want to keep Steve’s legacy alive and are happy for the Golden Oldies event to name the cup in his

We felt it was very fitting with the event being held in Steve’s hometown and being played for by footballers who participate for the sheer love of the game,” Mr Thomas said. The Steve Sumner Cup will be played for by the division one teams. There are expected to be more than 60 football teams taking part in a number of categories

and age groups from across the country and overseas. Mr Thomas said the cup would be contested at the biennial Golden Oldies World Football Festival and at a local tournament in Christchurch in alternate years. The Golden Oldies World Football Festival will be played from April 15-22 at Hagley Park. It is one of 10 sports – rugby, hockey, netball, basketball, cricket, squash, golf, lawns bowls and football – which make up

the month long event expected to attract 10,000 people.

Call out for volunteers NEARLY 1000 volunteers are needed to help run the Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018. The event, which is expected to bring about 10,000 people to the city, would combine 10 sports over April. Event director Peter McDermott said they were calling for volunteers to help run the event and boost the visitor experience for both national and international guests. Roles will include umpiring, refereeing, scoring, or setting up equipment, among others. Volunteers must be over 18, available for a minimum of three shifts in April, able to attend three training sessions, subject to police vetting and be able to cover their own travel and accommodation costs. Volunteers will be provided with branded clothing, meal vouchers, training, a certificate of appreciation and an invitation to a thank you function. •Applications to join the volunteer team close on October 1, with the first training session scheduled for the end of that month.

Build your next home with Artisan Homes Your local registered Master Builder Home building is as much about understanding the landscape and the client as it is the plan and the materials. From our office in Rolleston, Canterbury our small company has built a huge range of homes that are distinctive, stylish, durable and cost-effective. From clever, compact homes to three bedroom townhouses to large scale, expansive country style homes, our work spans all types of house building. Since 2004 we have carefully built, among other things, a reputation for constructing high quality houses. An artisan is someone who is highly skilled in a particular expertise, a hands-on craftsman – someone who is passionate about the quality results they produce. With decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes have worked in all areas of residential construction. There are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom

home compared to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our overall approach remains the same.

Building with difficult access, looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of life for us. All our tradespeople are qualified and registered or licensed. Our abilities to design and build a range of houses have increased over the years, as has our skill and overall capacity. While we don’t have the franchises of our larger competitors we do have their networks and buying power. Which means our clients receive the most costeffective results possible.

Dearna Doglione Our People Passing on confidence to aspiring Dearna Doglione, 20, of Rolleston has spearheaded Christchurch’s first hui for women in theatre to help resolve gender imbalance in Canterbury’s theatre industry. She spoke to Georgia O’ConnorHarding How does it feel to have helped put together the first Christchurch Hui for Women in Theatre? I think at first I found the idea daunting of bringing together a large group of women that I have looked up to, been inspired by and watched be phenomenal on stage and backstage. But once we started meeting I realised it wasn’t about who organised it, it was about women getting together talking about their issues and supporting each other. Tell me about some of the research you did while studying at the National Academy Of Singing and Dramatic Art? The general idea I found was not enough women stories were being told that were not about a man’s journey and the women being a side-character. I was finding that in shows on stage and I realised there was a reason behind this – there were not enough female playwrights, directors, producers or artistic directors. How do you find the Canterbury theatre scene? Auckland has multiple theatres and underground theatres – theatres that have the opportunity to put on work that they might not think will actually sale. There is this misunderstanding that work about women intrinsically will not sale because it is not what done. But you look at Songs For Nobodies starring Ali Harper that is on at The Court Theatre now. It is a one-woman show that is selling and doing amazingly. It is written by a

EMPOWERING: Rolleston performer Dearna Doglione has helped organise the first meeting in Christchurch with other women in theatre to address gender imbalance. PHOTO: WENDY RILEY ​

female starring a female about the lives of 12 different women. I think it is evidence enough in itself. There is Steel Magnolias coming up at The Court Theatre in August. It is starring

four of The Court Theatre’s staple performers and is about the bond a group of women share in a small-town community. Would you like to see more shows like this in the area?

Yes, this show is an exception. It is amazing to see a show that is being led by four powerful, amazing, talented females. You would just hope it had a woman’s voice in direction but you can’t

have everything at once. What were some of the actions that were decided upon at the hui? Our two main things that came out of it was an idea of a mentorship programme for young women coming into the industry to not face the same things we know happen. To have another woman mentor who has gone through the industry and knows what is okay and what is not and teaching them how stand up for themselves and how to be brave – not get pushed around in the industry. The other outcome we discussed was searching for parity of pay backstage, on stage and at an artistic level.  What is generally the difference of pay between men and women in the industry? We want to research this. From my research in the general workforce a woman earns 77 cents for every dollar a man earns for doing the same job. If we do not enact a change to this, the International Labour Organisation estimates the wage gap will not close until 2086. That is not okay. What we are saying is there should be a base rate. Are you feeling optimistic for theatre in Canterbury after having this meeting? I am. Because when we get together we realise we are all feeling the same way and going through the same hardships and we are not going to stand for it anymore. We had women including myself just out of drama school and we have seasoned professionals who know the game. The industry is already tough as it is, it must be difficult to have this on top of everything? We had a lot of stories from women at the meeting of just things in the rehearsal room of not being treated the same as their male counterparts, or when it came to booking a job they were treated differently - it was horrible to hear.

performers Tell me about your work you are doing in Rolleston? I teach singing lessons. I only have three pupils. I like to keep it to a small amount so I can put my time and effort into them. I also teach them basic piano skills. We pick a song they like and then one I think they need to work on. One girl sings music from fantasy film Moana and also something from musical Fiddler on the Roof. Do you think there is room for theatre to grow in Selwyn? Totally, I want to start up drama classes when my schedule isn’t crazy. There are so many parents keen to get their kids into drama. It is not just about singing and acting, it is about confidence and teaching kids they have a voice and they can use it. I used to teach swimming and I taught so many kids who had no confidence in themselves. How was training at NASDA? NASDA is a very full-on

degree. They talk about “NASDA life” – it becomes all engrossing. I graduated last year and now work there part time in assisting operations- such as stage managing and helping out with costumes. What are your personal goals as a performer? I want to be able to make a living in this industry. Whether that is overseas or nationally. This year I am focusing on myself as a person and next year I am going hard at auditioning. NASDA is such a full-on world that once you leave it you have changed so much as a person and need to take time to find where you sit in the world. My end-goal from the moment I applied to NASDA was to play Elphaba in Wicked. Tell me about your favourite show at NASDA The Collective? That show was the first time I felt like I knew what acting was. I hadn’t done a full-length play before. This is the first time I got to build a character and fol-

low her through the whole play. It was the first time I worked with a director who wasn’t my teacher. I was treated as an actor not a student. It was with amazing Christchurch acting director Melanie Luckman who inspired me. She inspired the idea for the mentorship programme because she is a powerful lady who I have looked up to before meeting her. Now we are friends and I take donuts to her child. Did you grow up here? Yes, I went to Rolleston School and Lincoln High School. I was a very shy person up until mid-high school when I decided I wanted to be an actor. Do you think the arts helped put yourself out there? Totally, that is why I want to have a drama programme out here. I always felt more confident as a character than as myself until I realised I had something to offer as myself. I want to pass that lesson on to anyone I can.

CultureFest returns Following the success of its inaugural event, this year’s CultureFest will take place on Sunday 1 October at Lincoln Event Centre from 11am–4pm. The event is organised by Selwyn District Council in partnership with the Rotary Club of Lincoln, Christchurch MultiCultural Council, and community representatives. Organisers are seeking cultural/ethnic performance groups and craftspeople to showcase the diversity of the growing Selwyn district. If you are a member of a group that would be interested in participating, contact Dave Tippett on 347 2719 or events@selwyn.govt.nz for more information. Applications close on Friday 4 August.

Science Snippets: Adventures to the Moon! Selwyn District Libraries host one hour sessions after school each term which are delivered by Science Alive! These ‘Science Snippets’ have a different theme each term. In Term 3 children can enjoy ‘Adventures to the Moon!’ a programme which will teach children about the Moon and its relationship with the Earth. Children will enjoy a hands-on hour of astronomy including making a Moon phase dial, creating craters and viewing the Moon through binoculars.

Taking play

The times and locations of these sessions are:

Work on Selwyn’s first ‘destination playground’ is set to begin.

· · · ·

Lincoln Library – Monday 7 August, 3.30–4.30pm Leeston Library – Tuesday 8 August, 3.30–4.30pm Darfield Library – Wednesday 9 August, 3.30–4.30pm Rolleston Library – Thursday 10 August, 3.30–4.30pm

Suitable for 5–10 year olds. Free, but bookings are essential.

Construction of the new playground at Foster Park in Rolleston is planned to start in early September and be completed by early 2018.

See www.selwynlibraries.co.nz to book and for more information.

The new playground is expected to attract a wide range of ages. A key feature is a large four metre high mound with a slide and a flying fox. A fort on top of the mound has a tunnel slide winding to the ground. The playground also features a natural play area and a mouse wheel along with other popular playground equipment.

Looking for a carpool buddy? Selwyn commuters can now access Smart Travel Canterbury, which aims to save time, money, and reduce congestion by matching travellers with like-minded individuals.

The play elements were chosen based on feedback from local school children who were surveyed on their playground preferences. The survey results showed strong support for a mouse wheel, followed by a big slide, a fort and a flying fox.

Users can match with commuters who share similar routes using the new Smart Travel app, which is available for download at the App Store or on Google Play.

The playground will be very accessible with a promenade along the side of it, wide paths running through and a koru-shaped path leading to the top of the mound.

The app and website (www.smarttravel.org.nz) allow users to enter their starting point and destination, their days and times for departure and arrival, as well as travel method, using Google Maps to estimate travel time and public transport options. Based on these criteria a list of registered commuters who match the user will be provided. Users must register and be logged in to be able to access contact details for their carpool matches to make arrangements.

A variety of surfaces including artificial turf, rubber softfall and wood chip will make the playground a safe environment for children of all ages. Decking and picnic areas will have shade sails and there will also be native and exotic trees and shrubs.

Explore Selwyn – Dracophyllum Flat Track

All new registrations on the site during July will go into a draw to win a $150 Prezzy card from Smart Travel.

The Dracophyllum Flat Track hosts a variety of native flora, stunning views and local birdlife. It winds through the Craigieburn Forest Park, climbing part-way up the mountain ranges to an open grassy plain with a 360 degree view of nearby mountains.

To register or for further information see www.smarttravel.org.nz.

Along the way stop off at the popular picnic site, sheltered by redbrown Dracophyllum, native tussock and bordered by the flowing Broken River. After your picnic, cross the river on the pole bridge, stop for a great photo opportunity, and then head up the track for five minutes to the clearing. The track is mostly well-formed, however some sections can be muddy or rough so we recommend sturdy walking shoes or light tramping shoes. The track is gradually sloped however there are some steep sections. Check out our Facebook page for a video of this fantastic walk.

Time: 45 minutes one way Elevation: 1840m Difficulty: Medium, not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs. Dogs on leash are permitted. How to get there: The track starts part way up Craigieburn Park Road, park in the picnic area and walk up. The picnic area is signposted from SH73. It is located about 1 hour 20 minutes from Rolleston or around an hour from Darfield.

On the roads this week The intersection of Hoskyns Road and Sandy Knolls Road is being upgraded and a change of priority will occur this month so that traffic approaching from Sandy Knolls Road will need to stop. Traffic delays may occur and detours may operate while the upgrade occurs. Construction of a right turn bay is continuing at the intersection of Dynes Road and Springston Rolleston Road, with traffic controls in place at this location. Care is needed when driving through the site. Footpath construction will be occurring on Liffey Springs walkway. Sewer line installation work is continuing on Shands Road and Selwyn Road – traffic delays may occur due to this work. Culvert work is planned on Algidus Road. Unsealed road maintenance will occur on Bush Gully Road. Drainage and berm work is being done on Leeston Dunsandel Road in Dunsandel. Traffic controls will be operating at all sites. Snow clean-up work will occur in Castle Hill, Arthur’s Pass and Bealey Spur.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension – NZ Transport Agency From Monday 17 July the CSM2 project team continue to fell trees along the north-bound side of Main South Road between Weedons Ross Road and Curraghs Road. This will be carried out using Stop/ Go setups between the hours of 9am and 4pm and will create queues. We recommend allowing more time for your journey or using alternative side roads.

Ryden Bain – Do you have animals on your lifestyle blocks? I don’t like the smell of your stock going through my washing. Let the man be and get on with your life. Go stop another quarry going in while your at it eh?

Catherine Thornley – Sounds like a no-brainer, whether its climate change or irrigation, why is large scale dairying encouraged when there is obviously not enough water to go round. Enough water for human consumption is of more importance than irrigation. A reader responds to the Selwyn Times’ article on a decision for an engineering workshop to be set up in a residential area on Two Chain Rd Philip Colegate – I would very much like to have my say about this business being granted consent to operate in a rural area. This is a subject that has been close to my heart and Selwyn Times has, in the past, published letters from me on the subject. We in rural Prebbleton suffered exactly the same issues with a contractor who bought a 4ha lifestyle block to convert into a contractor’s yard. The contractor lives elsewhere. I fully sympathise with the residents in Two Chain Rd as it seems that the councils, and law

of the land, allow businesses to do whatever they want, whereever they want and whenever they want with no protection of the rights of residents in areas zoned as residential or rural. I wish them luck with their appeal but from our experience they have a long and expensive battle ahead of them with the cards stacked against them. I have asked our local MPs for their opinion on the legislation and am awaiting a reply from Minister for the Environment Nick Smith on this subject and what Government policy is. It is unacceptable that residents’ rights seem to be non-existent if district planning zoning

is set aside without proper reason and wide consultation. It is an absolute disgrace. We said: Workshop upsets residents on Two Chain Rd You said: Janys Rebecca Harrison – When my family moved to a rural area in Selwyn, Canterbury we had a lovely view of the Southern Alps . . . until our neighbours built a huge glasshouse to grow tomatoes. It’s not noisy because they’re too far away to make any difference. But

Adam Vincent – Maximum average of 60dB (around the noise of a moderately loud restaurant) at 250m? Two staff on site max? Loss of a rural amenity when rural properties tend to have workshops for maintaining vehicles and plant? I feel like any appeal is going to struggle in court. Stephen Graham – What possibilities did the LIM report show before you bought your land? Corie Herd – Get over it. Lyle Robinson – Cut your ears off. Susanne H H Bush-King – That’s life, get over it. Bernadette Muinos – Stay off Wonthaggi. Same situation here! We said: A hospitality boom is

fast tracking an area into a social hot-spot You said: Nic Davies – Great to see. We said: You don’t want to miss out on seeing Jimmy Barnes at the Selwyn Sounds concert next year You said: Tracey Moore – Sounds amazing. Jan Johnson – Read his book, what a great story and how he rose above the poverty of his early family life. We had no idea how hard it was for those arriving from Scotland and appalling way they were treated. •Turn to page 18

are lobbying for an extra cemetery. You said: Kiwitanga Democratic Party – This is something we identified a while ago. We can’t keep giving gravesites massive amounts of prime city land and massive plots of land in general. Sorry. Other countries have managed to solve this long before New Zealand. That doesn’t mean everyone has cremations. It just means there are different options used around the world. Let’s look into giving people and cities more options. Hamish Middleton – Traditional burials should be a thing of the past. Eco-Burials and columbarium should be the future focus.

Jules Davies – Good on him, but would be kinder on your ears to miss it. Anna Henderson – Whoa – awesome line-up this time. Pamela Neil – Good for him. Vanessa Chapman – No thanks. Met him in person and not a fan. We said:

Pamela Neil – Cremations and ashes into the sea . . . cemeteries are not needed any more. Just a lovely park with gardens?

Swimmer visits kids on holiday A LINCOLN holiday programme had a special visit from upcoming swimmer Hannah Bates. The 16-year-old took time out of her busy schedule to chat with Sport Canterbury’s Active Kids Holiday Programme participants to answer questions about what makes a promising swimmer tick. The children got to meet with Hannah just in the nick of time before she headed to the Bahamas to compete in this week’s Commonwealth Youth Games. Sport Canterbury events and programme manager Jules Wilke said the visit aimed to introduce children to young inspirational sporting achievers. She said Hannah was an amazing role model. Last month Hannah, 16, returned home from the Australian Age Group Swimming Championships with a gold and silver medal, qualifying for the youth games. 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.

SPORTS

Stallions continue to prance „„ By Gordon Findlater THE SELWYN United Stallions can all but secure promotion to the Mainland Premier League on Saturday when they face Christchurch United at Foster Park. A nail-biting 4-3 win over Burwood AFC at the weekend means that with five games remaining in the Canterbury Championship League, Selwyn are 10 points clear of Christchurch in second and 12 clear of Halswell United in third. It was captain fantastic Dan Ede that was the saviour in his side’s win on Saturday’s at English Park. Selwyn may have made their worst start to a game all season and found themselves trailing bottom of the table Burwood 0-2 after just eight minutes. “We were left scratching our heads a bit and looking at each other not really knowing what had happened,” said Selwyn coach Lee Padmore. Ede then came to the rescue, scoring two before half-time to even things at the break. He then completed his hat-trick early in the second half. Burwood evened the scores at three each before Kieran Pinkney gave Selwyn the winner with 10 minutes remaining.

TIME SERVED: Bronson Munro (left) has returned to rugby following a 46-weekban. ​

Munro back for Waihora

HAT-TRICK: Dan Ede (right) netted three times on Saturday in Selwyn’s 4-3 win over Burwood. ​

“It wasn’t a brilliant display if I’m honest,” said Padmore. “As soon as we got into the changing room we decided to quickly put it behind us and turn our attention to this weekend.” If Selwyn can win against

Christchurch, and Halswell don’t win their match against Parkland United, the title will be theirs. If they gain promotion it will be the first time the club has competed in the MPL – Mainland Football’s top flight competition.

„„ By Gordon Findlater BRONSON MUNRO has returned to club rugby for Waihora following a 46-week suspension for racial abuse. Munro, 24, was suspended from all rugby matches including any on-field activities until May 31 this year, for racially abusing Southbridge player Peni Manumanuniliwa. He returned last month to make his first club rugby display in almost a year. Munro hasn’t had any problem breaking back into the Waihora division one side. He was a key player for the club before his ban and has represented the South Island Maori rugby team during three seasons. “He’s been on eggshells but he’s come back into the team quite well,” said Waihora coach Joff Mooar.

“A local team for local people”

“We’ve put it behind us. His second game back was against Southbridge and there were no problems.” Munro was found guilty by a Canterbury Rugby judicial committee for acts or statements that are discriminatory by reason of religion, race, sex or national or ethnic origin. He was alleged to have called Manumanuniliwa a ‘black c***’. The abusive comment came during last year’s Canterbury combined country rugby final, after Manumanuniliwa was penalised for a high tackle. Munro is expected to feature in Waihora’s push to claim the Ellesmere division one competition title. Waihora currently lead the completion with one round remaining. •More sport, p20, p21

ELLESMERE HAVE reclaimed the Southbridge Shield after defeating North Canterbury 35-20 in Kaiapoi. North Canterbury made the brighter start and Ellesmere found themselves trailing 6-17 with less than 10 minutes remaining in the first half. In what proved the most influential stage of the game, Ellesmere put the bit between their teeth and scored two late tries through Jale Masi and Tim Murgatroyd to take an 18-17 advantage at the break. “The boys were able to recognise what was happening and made a couple of changes which enabled us to turn things around,” said Ellesmere coach Alex Robertson. Ellesmere showed their dominance in the second 40 with both Keiran Meikle and Mark

Maitland crossing the line, while North Canterbury were held try less. “Trust was the biggest thing that helped us win the game. The players trusted and kept faith in the systems they put in place,” said Robertson. The team celebrated the victory where their day had begun, returning to the Golden Mile Tavern in Templeton where they held a team breakfast before the trip. The Ellesmere players will now turn their attention to the club competition with one round remaining before the play-offs. The top four have already been decided but there is plenty to play for with home advantage in the play-offs on the line. Competition leader Waihora have a bye, which will give Southbridge the chance to secure the top qualifier spot if they can defeat fourth placed Prebbleton.

Third placed Darfield will look to secure a home semi-final with a bonus point win when they head to Rolleston. Results Seniors – Southbridge Shield Ellesmere 35, North Canterbury 20.

News Countdown to supermarket appeal Saturday 8 – Saturday 22 July 2017

Countdown‘s upcoming appeal will help provide equipment for patients using Christchurch Hospital’s paediatric and neo-natal services. Sarla Donovan visited cancer sufferer, eightyear-old Jacob Matua, who benefits from the equipment JACOB MATUA has visited this place many times. He’s in the Children’s Haematology and Oncology Centre in the Riverside building at Christchurch Hospital, where’s he’s hooked up to an infusion pump dispensing the medicine he needs. It’ll be 10pm before this day’s treatment is over. After the eight-year-old started getting “headaches and tummy pain, neck pain, arm pain,” at the end of last year, a cancer diagnosis followed, along with nearly three months in hospital, getting treatment. Now he comes in for shorter stays – four days this time – and is crossing his fingers that he can return to his Clyde Rd home tomorrow. Jacob’s not well enough to attend his school, Burnside Primary, at the moment. He

How to donate •To donate to the appeal, visit your local Countdown and donate at the checkout or purchase a Kids Hospital Appeal wristband or raffle ticket •Contributions can be made at Rolleston Countdown •The appeal has raised more than $10.4 million since it began in 2007 •It fundraises for 11 children’s hospitals around New Zealand, including Christchurch Hospital •It runs from August 7 until October 29

couldn’t even eat his birthday chocolate cake in May: “Because sometimes I don’t eat,” he said. Charge nurse manager Chrissy

Bond lightens the mood: “I wish I could say that!” The nurses play cards with him, including memory and skip bo. Lucy Stephenson, who is supervising today, says he’s quite the card shark. “I win every time,” Jacob says with a grin. His aunt Ula Faamoe sits with him, too, giving his mum – who has four other children including twin three-year-old’s – a break. She says he’s well at the moment: “The best I’ve seen him since starting the chemotherapy. He’s making great progress.” Beside his bed, a tall pump stand holds all kinds of medi-

cines and beeping equipment. The $5000 stand is one of four in the centre, purchased with money from the Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal in 2013. Mrs Bond said it holds five to six pumps and keeps the medicines stable, as well as allowing nurses to easily read information on screens attached to the pumps. “DHBs find equipment like this hard to fund, because we can ‘make do’ with inferior (devices). It isn’t essential, but it just makes everybody’s life easier,” she said. Last year’s appeal raised $123,270 for Christchurch

Hospital’s paediatric wards and neo-natal unit. Countdown Kids Hospital Appeal chairwoman Ruth Krippner says most kiwi kids will visit hospital at some stage in their childhood. She said Countdown is proud to play a part in helping provide these hospitals with the equipment needed to treat illness and injury. “Whether it’s a one off visit for a minor injury or a lengthy stay for a serious illness, most New Zealand children will have a brush with a children’s hospital ward at some point​– just like this family,” Ms Krippner said. “Thanks to the generosity of our customers and the fundraising efforts of the Countdown teams, we’re able to help provide hospitals with the much needed-equipment to treat thousands of Kiwi kids. Last year, we raised ​more than $1.1 million, and we’re hoping to do the same this year.” Meanwhile, Jacob is busy putting on his “best face” for the photographer. “Does a picture come out of that?” he asks.

Double glazing insulates Having a warm dry home in winter is easier with double glazed windows and doors. These have two panes of glass that trap air in the middle. This makes it harder for cold air to penetrate through so a home stays warmer. Double glazing technology has progressed over time and today’s product is superior in design and function. This translates into more efficiently insulated homes, lower power usage, minimal if any condensation and less outside noise heard in the home. Ultimate Design and Renovation is locally owned and operated by Kelly and Mike Tyson who have considerable industry experience and are known for manufacturing high quality aluminium

joinery for both new and older homes. The company specialises in replacing timber, steel or older aluminium windows and doors for a more modern looking home that is easier to heat and keep warm, while adding capital value. Their recently developed streamlined sliding doors are made from thicker metal than is available in competing products, making them stronger which enables Ultimate Design and Renovation to make much larger spanning doors, which allows more sunlight into the home. They also manufacture conservatories and windbreaks – affordable ways to expand a home with lovely sheltered warm spaces. With Ultimate Design and Renovation

owning the extrusion, they can quickly turn an order around, delivering high quality aluminium joinery at a competitive price along with excellent service. Their highly skilled installers work to a customer’s timeline, respecting their home, working tidily and cleaning up afterwards so there is no glass or other objects left lying around. Until the end of July, Ultimate Design and Renovation and Mainland Glass have a limited number of half price double glazing packages available.

A patio roof solves outdoor entertaining dilemma Even in winter, it is nice to sit outside. As the weather warms up we spend more time outdoors, especially when socialising with friends and family. Planning a barbecue or alfresco event can be risky at any time of the year. With fine weather never a guarantee, it is good to have a covered area for entertaining. The children too will enjoy having somewhere outside to hang out when raining. This is easily sorted with a Bowranda patio roof. Produced by Unique Outdoors, the Bowranda’s highly specialised membrane protects against rain, hail and snow while filtering out 99 percent of the sun’s harsh UV rays yet still letting light into your deck or courtyard, as well as the home. These areas are also cooler as solar radiant heat is filtered out. Further protection and shade can be added with roller blinds which offer the opportunity to keep out a northwest, southerly or easterly wind. These can be produced from sunscreen mesh fabric or PVC (clear or tinted). Bowranda is a permanent structure that effectively extends the living space of a home. Constructed from powder coated aluminium, with stainless steel fixings, it will not rust and is stable in windy conditions so ideal for the Selwyn district. The attractive Bowranda patio roof can be manufactured to specific dimensions to suit a particular space or budget while complementing and adding value to your most important asset. Unique Outdoors is a division of MCP New Zealand Limited. This business has a long connection with Canterbury having been established 57 years ago, with its head office still based in Christchurch. For more information about Unique Outdoors’ Bowranda Patio Roof, or any of their other products that include indoor blinds, outdoor blinds and awnings, call 0800 26 26 20.

The Bowranda patio roof is constructed of powder coated aluminium and stainless steel fixings to ensure it will withstand coastal conditions. Eliminates 99% of UV whilst maintaining ambient light. This is important as it provides protection from the sun without darkening the area, including the adjacent interior. The square profile of the roof line provides a pleasing aesthetic as it conforms to the lineal nature of residential architecture. Made locally for local conditions.

Aiming for

the best

Customer service is something some businesses overlook leading to unfulfilled promises and disappointed customers who wait for a service or goods to arrive. Malcolm Ryder believes this occurs when companies look to increase profits by reducing distribution costs, making less deliveries to an area so customers must wait for urgently needed supplies. “I want to provide service the way it should be and once was,” advises Malcolm who owns and operates Kiwi Gas, a company that has been supplying LPG to Christchurch for over 18 years. When customers contact Kiwi Gas one of his team answers, not someone in a call centre who might be based off-shore. Kiwi Gas focuses on offering competitive if not cheaper prices and speedy delivery. “Our aim is to supply customers with gas within 24 hours, no matter where they’re based and we haven’t failed on that promise yet,” says Malcolm. This approach to business might explain why Kiwi Gas has become so popular with

customers calling up for gas deliveries or popping into the company’s ‘drive-thru’ at 37 Shands Road in Hornby, where you can get gas bottles of all sizes filled. A 9kg fill costs just $25.90 and they also sell a full range of refurbished gas bottles, gas parts and accessories. If wanting to hire gas heating for a function, Kiwi Gas can help with this too. They hire outdoor heaters to bars, restaurants and individuals from as little as $39 per heater, per night. Malcolm says Kiwi Gas is as ‘Kiwi As’. They have three aims: ‘fast as’, ‘easy as’ and ‘sweet as’, explaining their growing reputation for customer service, fast delivery times and looking after the community. “New customers often tell us, the reason they called was because they’d heard so many good things about us,” adds Malcolm. You will find Kiwi Gas at 37 Shands Road in Hornby. If wanting a delivery, call them on 0800 166 619, email: needgas@ kiwigas.co.nz or order on-line at: www. kiwigas.co.nz.

It’s all go at local nursery With the southern motorway extension well underway, businesses like Southern Woods Nursery which originally fronted onto Main South Road have had some major changes. Southern Woods is undergoing a complete makeover. Building work has started on their new garden centre and they have been replanting their arboretums and display gardens with all on target for their grand new garden centre opening in spring. Until then, Southern Woods can be found on their existing site via their new main entrance off Robinsons Road, just around the corner from Main South Road. With deciduous trees dormant in winter this is a good time to plant these. Southern Woods have a great selection of fruit and specimen trees that will complement established gardens or add height to newly landscaped areas. Their extensive selection of field grown trees are a great planting option this winter, see the range in-store or online. Your garden focus at this time of year may be cleaning up and Southern Woods have quality tools to help with the job, including Japanese made secateurs and pruning saws, and Italian loppers. Tidying the garden may also require supplies and Southern Woods have bags of potting mix, compost, stakes, tree webbing, ties, and fruit tree sprays along with liquid seaweed spray for applying early spring to

Care of roses In the north, July is traditionally rose pruning time with many keen gardeners believing this task should completed by mid-August. Given the potential for late frosts in Selwyn it may be wiser to wait unless your roses are in a sheltered spot. Doing so will prevent early growth from being frost damaged, which can knock the plant back. After all, early pruning will not translate to early flowering.

If determined to carry out the job sooner apply frost protection sprays otherwise prune just before the plant begins growing again. While roses happily grew wild without ever being pruned, they respond well to a good cut back and will flower more prolifically on new growth. Prune to shape rather than necessarily giving a really hard annual prune, keeping the centre of the bush fairly open so sun and air can move

through it. You could simply cut back any winter damage. Older style, climbing and some weeping standard roses that traditionally bloom in spring should be left and cut back after flowering. To complement their wonderful display, pop in spring bulbs around their base; a job that needs to be done now. Throughout spring and summer, remove deadheads as each bloom dies off. When autumn descends leave these on the bush to help harden stems and prepare the bush for winter. You will need thick gloves to protect your hands and wrists along with clean, sharp, and well-oiled secateurs. It is a good idea to spray the secateurs with a little liquid copper or methylated spirits after pruning each bush. A small narrow bladed saw will also be handy for removing thicker branches. Pick a fine windless day (several days after rain) to avoid the spread of silver leaf disease which is more likely in the air when the weather is cool and damp. Make a clean diagonal cut about 5-6mm above the third to sixth bud, depending on how thick you want the plant. The lower

part of the cut should be level with the bud itself. Slanting the cut allows water to drain off rather than settle and cause rot. Cut out any dead or diseased wood along with weak spindly branches so the plant is opened up to the sun and air. Shape climbing roses like a fan to fit a trellis, post or the size desired, removing any dead or spindly branches. Never cut these lower than a bush rose to avoid the plant reverting back to this type of rose. After pruning, spray cuts with liquid copper. This protects the wounds. Spray lime sulphur over the whole bush and around the soil at its base to eliminate fungal spores then dispose of debris taking care not to compost it. Finally, layer the ground at the base with organic mulch to help retain moisture over the drier months remembering to fertilise and water regularly.

Charging for water – where does it end?

Federated Farmers is worried talk of charging for commercial water use will take the country down an irreversible path of taxing ourselves unnecessarily, increasing prices and limiting economic growth. The Green Party’s plan to charge a 10 cent a litre tax on bottled water and to charge for other commercial water uses, like farming, could end up costing New Zealanders billions, the organisation says. “We understand why Kiwis hate seeing our water bottled and sent offshore, with barely more than a couple of people employed locally to do it,” Federated Farmers water spokesperson Chris Allen says. “But, charging for every litre used does not make this problem go away. In fact, it is likely to put cost burdens on our people, our taxpayers and our communities which are simply unsustainable.” He says the main problem with this policy is, where does it end? “The Greens and Labour have both talked about charging for commercial water uses. But no one has calculated what effect this would have on the economy, or on ordinary Kiwis. “We’ve crunched some numbers based on water consent applications and:

• About 60 per cent of water consumed in New Zealand is used for electricity generation. Adding just one cent a litre charge to the water used by the Manapouri power station alone would require passing on a cost of $160 billion dollars to New Zealand electricity users (that’s 65 per cent of the total value of our economy). • About nine per cent of consented water takes are for ‘industrial’ uses, which would add $24 billion in costs at one cent per litre of water used. • People connected to domestic drinking water supplies would pay an extra $18 billion, including commercial users working with domestic water supplies. • The price of fruit and vegetables grown for the domestic market would increase, meaning that domestically grown produce would be unable to compete with imports. • The price of milk and meat would go up for domestic consumers and make our exports less competitive. “Basically if we go down this path, we will all pay more, for everything. It’s like a tax on living,” Mr Allen says.

Flowers brighten the gloom of winter NOW IN the depth of winter, we are experiencing regular, heavy frosts. Soils are wet and cold, winds are chilly and we’ve even had snow. However, the gloom of winter is brightened by the appearance of blooming azaleas, camellias, early flowering rhododendrons and early flowering cherries. It’s an excellent time to plan your summer garden as spring is just around the corner. It’s harvest time for those winter maturing vegetables that were planted in late summer/autumn. Veges to harvest in July include artichoke (Jerusalem), broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbages, cauliflowers, carrots, celery, leeks, lettuce, parsnips, silver beet, spinach and swedes. Continue to spread compost around maturing vegetables to help with excess water and improve the soil. Inspect your vegetable plants regularly for snails – they appear to become more cold-hardy every year. Where possible, prepare the soil for spring plantings, digging to a depth of 200mm and adding compost as you go. Ensure it is mixed in well. Winter flowering annuals should now be providing masses of colour in your gardens and containers. Remove dead flowers

July is probably the main month for pruning roses throughout the country as the plants are now dormant. Don’t be afraid to prune your roses quite hard as rose bushes are increasingly resilient. Spread fresh compost around the base of the bushes. One week after pruning, spray with lime sulphur or a copper compound such as copper oxychloride to ward off fungal diseases (do not mix these sprays together), then three or four days later, apply a horticultural spray to kill off any overwintering pests (again do not mix with copper). Garden hygiene is very important with roses so remove any dead leaves or diseased wood from the ground.

State of the environment What are the environmental realities we need to face up to? Can we protect and conserve the environment while still remaining heavily dependent on pastoral production? Chief Science Advisor to the Prime Minister, Sir Peter Gluckman, will talk about the trade-offs we make and how we can manage them,when he gives this year’s Lincoln University State of the Nation’s Environment Address.

Policy decisions need to be made and we have to decide, as a society, what is important to us in the future. Will new life science technologies provide a circuit breaker on the destruction of our environment, or will society remain highly precautionary. Several important policy-relevant papers and goal statements are emerging. They point to the need for strategic research and innovative thinking to address the issues we face now, and this will become even more critical in the future. Come along and hear a renowned scientist address the issues affecting New Zealand today, and in the future.

LEArning firST aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. Take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen.

new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in Australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

Confident at Auctions Looking confident may be all you need to be the last bidder standing when the hammer goes down. Does your blood pressure go sky-high at the sight of an auction room? Chances are some of your fellow bidders are doing all in their power to psych you out and win the bidding. Securing a property isn’t just about having the most money. Sometimes the winning bidder is the one with the most confidence. They use psychology to convince opposing bidders to give up, hoping to make everyone else think they’ve got more to spend than anyone else in the room. Too often buyers have preconceived ideas about how the auction will unfold and have their confidence knocked when it doesn’t go their way. Two can play at that game. You just need to get your strategy right. Looking confident may be all you need to be the last bidder standing when the hammer goes down. To be that person you need to do some preparation. Make sure you go to a few auctions first to get used to them. Come bidding day, park yourself on the side at the front so that you can see everyone in the room and, more importantly, they can see you whether they’re at the back of the front. It gives you a vantage point and shows the opposition you are bidding confidently against them. You are hoping that the other buyers

have a plan in place. Often that’s to start low. So if you come in with a relatively high first bid, you may rattle them. “The lower the open bid the more people can afford to bid. So you could knock out some of the opposition before they even place a bid if you choose the right opener. Don’t start at $500,000 for a house you know is going to go for at least $800,000. Put an opening bid of $785,000. Immediately your opposition is going to think it will go incredibly high and might be unnerved. Call each bid out confidently. “It shows you are comfortable and in control. The more confident you seem the more people will think you have done it before. It’s a really good idea to vary your bidding increments.. If it’s going up by $2000 bids and it’s below your limit don’t be afraid to put a $10,000 bid in.. Your competition is always thinking about that next $2000 bid and if you change the rhythm from $2000 to $10,000 you show you have the money and it changes where their next bid has to be. Instead of $4000 more it is $12,000 more. Finally, if you’re a couple, make sure you’ve discussed every aspect of the auction before you get there. As soon as you start looking at each other or conferring, the opposition will think you’re weak.

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), walkin 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.

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

Power saving ideas for a new build Building a new home offers the opportunity to incorporate power saving initiatives.

Windows should be plentiful on north, west and even east walls to capitalise on the sun’s free energy. The larger the window the more natural light is let in. If a hallway ends at an outside wall consider adding a window. These are also great beside or within entry doors. Thermally broken double glazing filled with low-emissivity argon gas is the next best thing in aluminium joinery offering superior insulating capabilities. Skylights in hallways and dark areas bring natural light into the house during the day. Solar power eliminates the worry over high power accounts. Most systems are set up so that any excess power generated, is sold to the grid via the electricity retailer who applies a connection fee and charges more for power drawn when there is no sun than for power bought back. Battery storage systems are now available yet still in their infancy. Solar water heating translates to long leisurely showers if water consumption is not a concern. It costs upwards of $5,000 and offers long-term savings on electricity. Insulation in the ceiling and walls is now compulsory for all new builds. An optional extra is to have foam insulated expanded polystyrene panels fitted under the concrete slab as a barrier against cold air coming up from under the house. Explore insulation options, choosing the type that will work best given your house design and cladding. Insulation also needs to be fitted tightly to be effective. An insulated garage door will make a difference as less cold air will penetrate the home and the garage will be a warmer place to work in. LED lighting offers brighter light and uses less electricity. The fittings and bulbs are more expensive though they have been getting cheaper. Sensors and timers control when lights

are turned off and on. The sensors respond to movement in a room with lights timed to turn off after a certain period of time. Heating options should be linked to your family’s needs and lifestyle. Log and gas fires offer ambience though gas is generally more costly. Heat transfer systems allow warm air generated from a burner to be circulated throughout the house. Central heating and under floor heating are fabulous for ensuring a consistently warm home though can be costly to run. Rooms can also be too hot when the sun is shining wasting power if windows are opened to compensate. Heat pumps are great in larger rooms and hallways with dual cassette heat pumps offering the option to position units in different parts of the home for centralised heating. More conventional heating may assist in smaller rooms. Remote controlled systems allow lights and heating to be turned on from a cell phone ahead of arriving home.

Solar power and water heating offers energy saving options.

Ensure plenty of north and west facing windows.

Ceiling and wall insulation is now compulsory for all new builds. FREE
