Car parking enforcement issue heats up „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding PARKING wardens could be seen in Selwyn as issues over car parking start to heat up. District councillors will meet tomorrow where an update on car parking, particularly in business areas, will be on the agenda. Mayor Sam Broughton said it was likely the discussion would include how car-parking timelimits in high usage areas are enforced.

Selwyn does not have parking wardens and restricted parking areas generally go unpoliced. Asked by Selwyn Times if that could mean parking wardens, Mr Broughton said: “Nothing is off the table . . . if we are going to have rules in bylaws they need to be enforceable.” His view was backed by longserving district councillor Pat McEvedy who said while timelimit restrictions are in place, they have not been enforced in

the past. “As the district develops clearly those issues will become more important and we will have to go to some form of enforcement

to ensure car parking is shared equally,” he said. The district council is currently embroiled in a dispute over car parking with one of the district’s newest businesses – the Black Door Cafe and Eatery in Lincoln. The dispute is over 12 parallel parks which the business believes are theirs to use as part of a 2010 resource consent on the site. The Black Door put up clamp-

ing and tow away signs on council 120 minute restricted parking signs outside the business in Robert St several weeks ago. The signs have now been taken down as legal talks over usage and enforcement continue. The district council currently does not give out parking tickets or have parking wardens, preferring to take an educational approach to change behaviours. •Turn to page 7

Tuesday August 15 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

IT CAN be hard to find a car park in the centre of Lincoln, particularly on a Saturday. The town is getting busier by the year and Gerald St and Robert St can be like a dodgem track as motorists vie for a spot. Tomorrow district councillors meet to get an update on what might lie ahead for car parking in commercial areas across the district (see page 1) and the Lincoln situation is likely to be high on the agenda. The E word will be the key: Enforcement. Enforcement usually means a ticket and that is not Selwyn-like. Currently the district council looks to “educate” motorists who overstay on 5mins, 30min and 120min parks. I’ll call them repeat offenders. But whether that system will continue to be able to work in the future is another matter. – Barry Clarke

Plan to improve flood response „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A RIVER gauge could be installed in the Selwyn River/Waikirikiri near State Highway 1 to ensure accurate information on flood levels is provided to authorities during an emergency. A review by Environment Canterbury and the district council is under way over how it responded to the flooding of the Selwyn Huts last month.  The Coes Ford river gauge has been pin-pointed as the main problem during the flood response, as it was not updating water level information fast enough.  A presentation was made by ECan’s senior river engineer Shaun McCracken at the district council last week. Mr McCracken said data from the radio at the gauge was not transmitting fast enough from the site to the server at ECan leaving services to rely on slightly inaccurate information. “We were unsure  if it was the real information or misinformation on the gauge but regardless it was the best information

Mr McCracken said in previous flood events in the Selwyn River/Waikirikiri there was more rain in the upper part of the catchment, upstream of Whitecliffs. In this case, there was more rain on the Canterbury Plains. District councillor Murray Lemon said the key learnings from the event was the need for another river gauge to monitor water flows. “I would certainly support that because if we get a repeat of that kind of unique rainfall pattern it will give it maybe another hour or so for that response time,” he said. • More flooding, pages 4-5 HAVE YOUR SAY: How do you think the emergency responses to the recent floods in Selwyn could be improved?

In Brief BLACK DOOR BAR On July 18, Selwyn Times reported that the Black Door Bar and Eatery in Lincoln was adamant it could clamp or tow away non-customer vehicles that parked in 12 parallel parks outside the business. However, Selwyn Times accepts the use of the word adamant was incorrect, and apologises to Mrs Alder for any distress caused. • Car parking issue, page 1 VEHICLE HITS TREE High winds over the weekend caused a vehicle to hit a fallen tree in Coalgate. The Kirwee, Sheffield and Coalgate Fire Services attended the incident at Deans Rd on Saturday night. Coalgate chief fire officer Phillip Shaw said the two people in the vehicle were not injured and were saved by their seat belts. EASTER SUNDAY HOURS Easter Sunday trading hours will remain unchanged in Selwyn. The district council opted not to develop a policy on Easter Sunday trading hours at its meeting last week. This means the current restrictions and exemptions will remain. The decision comes after a survey of community views showed opinions were split on making changes, with 46 per cent in support of the district council developing an policy on it and 47 per cent opposed.

Flood meeting „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding HORORATA firefighters have met with the district council and civil defence over issues it faced during last month’s floods. The meeting was held at the fire station last week. Hororata had significant flooding with Hawkins Rd and Plantation Rd being the worst hit areas after the Hororata River, Thorne’s Creek and Happy Jacks Creek overflowed. The township was affected again yesterday with the district council sending sand and bags to Fire and Emergency New Zealand in Hororata. Hororata Fire Brigade senior station officer Roger Parsons told Selwyn Times last week the Hororata River had built up badly with shingle and ECan and the

district council need to look at it. Happy Jacks Creek is also in need of being deepened and widened. Mr Parsons said while no solutions came from the meeting the suggestions to have the Hororata River looked at and the creeks widened were put forward to the district council.  An informal afternoon tea was also held in Hororata on Sunday to get residents onto the Selwyn Gets Ready initiative and for it to discuss their experiences with the floods.

NASA pilots land at Rolleston College

A SPECIAL visit was made to Rolleston College by two trained pilots working with NASA. Jim Less and Manny Antimisiaris, who are two of the 12 trained pilots to fly the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy plane, visited the school recently. Every year over the past four years, members of the SOFIA team have travelled to Christchurch for a two-month period. Students had the opportunity to learn about the history of the SOFIA plane, including the large telescope on board, where they fly, the cost of each mission, who goes on board the plane and what data they are collecting. The two pilots spoke to the

Long wait almost over Leeston resident Caitlin Miles writes about the opening of the Crate and Barrel and the need for public transport At long last – Leeston will once again have a public house. It’s been a long time since the old Leeston Hotel once proudly stood on the corner of Market and High Sts and, while it may have lost its prime spot to yet another farming-related store, at least the Crate and Barrel is set open soon (next week). I, like many around the township, was devastated when the pub was pulled down after it suffered immense damage following the September 4, 2010, earthquake. While I was not old enough to drink at the time I did miss it, and when I realised it wouldn’t be there for my 18th or 21st-birthdays it was even sadder. Safe to say the community was excited when all the rumours turned out to be true and we would once again have a pub and no – it’s not just because there would be alcohol. It’s more than

OVERDUE: The Crate and Barrel in Leeston is scheduled to open next week.

that. What is a town without a pub? It’s somewhere for people to meet, new and old in the area, somewhere warm in the winter and cool in the summer, somewhere to watch sport and somewhere local to grab dinner. It means the town is coming back. With that in mind it must be recognised that the Southbridge Hotel has supplied many good evenings for the Leeston locals, even though our two towns may be a little competitive.

So thanks Harry and the rest of the team for supplying the fun times – and courtesy van back home. Speaking of transport I am sick of the lack of public transport services on offer here. It’s about time the district council stepped up and provided for the smaller townships. When a survey came out asking if I would like a bus service in the area I said: ‘Hell yes,’ even though I was passed the age of relying on a bus or my parents to drive me where I wanted to go. However, I noticed nothing happened – which wasn’t surprising when the estimated cost each way was something ridiculous like $40 from here to town. What do those costs cover? What teenager in the school holidays could afford that? What elderly person has that money on hand? Why not get a bus that goes from Leeston – and other smaller towns around the area – to places like Lincoln or Rolleston, to then link with other buses? I think the district council needs to seriously take another look at the service they were offering and what would realistically be something people could afford or be willing to pay.

We said: Chocolate bars have been dropped in favour of selling reusable produce bags as a new way of fundraising at Southbridge Primary School. Would you ditch the chocolate fundraiser for an environmentally friendly option? You said: Stacey M Watts – With cubs we couldn’t sell products like this, chocolate is pocket change many people have, bigger items failed. We could park up at work right on 3.15pm and within minutes the box was empty. Cathryn Lucy – Mount Pleasant sold Band-Aids a few years back. Great idea for a fundraiser because everybody needs them and likes to keep the cupboards stocked up. Këllië Smith – Way rather buy something useful over chocolate. Nicole Parker – Our family alone would sell 75 boxes of Cadbury chocolate bars in two weeks. That is $4500 from our family alone. And our kids were not allowed to sell to family or at their father’s work. They had to go round the street and do it. Lots of exercise for my kids.

Marie Lynch – Great, I could never bring myself to buy the Cadbury’s option, much to the disappointment of the kids. Lead by good example and cut out the sugar from the schools. This is cool and more in line with the modern world. Lee Billington – They stopped chocolate sales at my girl’s high school too. Boxes of them would be sold in minutes. So a school Mum I know sold them from her house close to the school. Worked a treat. Vanessa McIntosh – Yay! Great to see schools are thinking outside the (chocolate) box. Sign me up for some. We sold gift wrap and pegs when I was at school. The pegs were really good quality, much better than the ones you get now. I’m all for non-food fundraisers.

Jess Tait – I remember selling plastics at school and they were great. I’m all for something other than chocolate but others are right in that it needs to be cheapish as most people buy them with change and not many carry much these days. Our school often does the family pie or slab pizzas and recently they did bales of pea straw. Helen Fox – Chocolate fundraisers are bad full stop. Sorry if I offend people but why do schools dish out healthy eating rules and then send chocolate bars home? Because that’s the only way to get money out I was told by a teacher. What would happen if I bought the chocolate, and sent it to school in my kids lunch box? Sharon Layton – Brilliant idea. Anything that a household needs . . . tin foil, baking paper. I would pay a little more for that rather than over-priced chocolate. Louisa Gray – Was at RJ’s Licorice in Levin couple weeks back and you can buy $20 boxes of eight big bags- these would make good fundraisers. As they sell single bags for $4 per bag at the shop. 4×8=$32 that’s $12 a box profit. Junior Robert Kaiawe – I would like to see a comparison

However . . . the idea of something that lasts longer, is helpful to the environment, and isn’t laced with sugar would get people thinking, which is like planting a seed. Watch it grow and change will happen. Alayna Norager – Too bad if you are the person who gets their treat when the kids come round selling chocolates.

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.

ACHIEVERS WINNER: Chef Nicholas Todd based at Burnham Military Camp has won the title of Apprentice Chef of the Year at the New Zealand Hospitality Championships. The event, held recently at the Logan Campbell Centre, Auckland, gave Mr Todd a chance to show the skills he had developed in his four years of training, cooking up a storm for the judges. Mr Todd said it was a great way to meet new people and he loved the challenge. ​

Curl up with a good book „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding BOOKWORMS IN Prebbleton in search of a new read, can look no further. A new “drop and swap” book exchange box has popped up next to the All Saints Church car park. The concept was initiated by the Prebbleton Community Association Committee with an aim to get the community reading solid books. The Rolleston Men’s Shed were quick to jump on board, building the library box. “We thought having a box like this in the community is a positive outreach,” committee chairman Peter Hunter said. If the community continues to support the library box, more could pop up around the village. “If it goes well we can put more of these little book boxes around the community,” Mr Hunter said. The rules are simple – if you take a book, swap it with another. “We will be keeping an eye on the books in the box and if they need topping up, adding to that is easy to do,” Mr Hunter said. The book exchange box has received a large amount of support with about 200 people re-

Take part in big Selwyn swim event REGISTRATIONS ARE open now for Selwyn Aquatic Centre’s new swimathon event, Swim to Summer. Following the success of the Swim to Rio Swimathon last year, which raised $2300 for St John Ambulance Rolleston, the Selwyn Aquatic Centre has issued a challenge to Selwyn residents to swim a combined total of 10,000km in pool lengths in the lead up to summer. Said Kathy Moore, aquatic facilities manager: “The challenge is for individuals to collectively swim 10,000km before December 1, while fundraising for prostate and breast cancer awareness. We encourage everyone to come along to work on their fitness and help a worthy cause.” Those interested in being involved simply need to sign up in person at the centre, start swimming or aquajogging, and log their laps for each swim at reception. A number of prizes will be available for those who swim the most laps, in categories for men, women and youth swimmers, as well as most visits to the centre during the swimathon. •For information ask at Selwyn Aquatic Centre reception, phone 347 2734 or email sac. enquiries@selwyn.govt.nz

Have your say on lower speed limits „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE PUBLIC will get their say on whether roads throughout the district will have their speed limits lowered. The district council is considering reducing the speed limit to 80km/h on rural roads between Christchurch out to the Tai Tapu, Lincoln and Rolleston boundaries. Maddisons Rd along with River Rd from Collins Rd East to Geddes Rd are some of the rural roads under consideration to be lowered from 100km/h to 80km/h. The consultation was given a green-light to go ahead at the district council meeting on Wednesday. It is part of an annual review which district council staff have been analysing since April and reflects a growth in population and traffic volumes. Townships where lower speed limits are to be consulted on includes Castle Hill, Leeston, Lincoln, Prebbleton, Rolleston and West Melton. The district council will also consult on reducing the speed limit to 80km/h on rural roads, including Maddisons Rd, between the Christchurch boundary and extending out to Tai

IN FOCUS: Maddisons Rd is one of several roads across Selwyn that will go out for public consultation to have its speed limit lowered. ​ Tapu, Lincoln and Rolleston. Rolleston Reserve Management Committee chairman Jens Christensen said the speed needs to be lowered and the road needs to be widened. “It is pretty frightening when there are big trucks coming down from there. There is no leeway at all,” he said. Weedons Residents’ Associa-

tion Committee chairman John McKim has made several deputations to the district council on the need to have the speed limit lowered from 100km/h to 80km/h. Mr McKim said lowering the speed limit will alleviate some of the problem but not all of it. “The condition of the road is getting worse and I don’t

anticipate the district council doing anything about it because you are looking at a massive expenditure,” he said. A district council spokesman confirmed it had no further plans to undertake upgrades on the road. At a previous deputation, Mr McKim has described Maddisons Rd as turning into a “super highway” and it was similar to driving a jaguar car down a mountain pass that isn’t sealed. Five crashes were reported on Maddisons Rd between July last year and June this year. The most recent traffic count showed 2896 vehicles on Maddisons Rd travel between Weedons Ross Rd and Hoskyns Rd each day. The roading annual review was requested by residents, committees and district councillors and complies with the Speed Limits Bylaw 2006. Mayor Sam Broughton said people are encouraged to get involved and they will take requests into consideration. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What roads in Selwyn would you like to see the speed limits lowered?

Lincoln comes out firing but stumbles in second half

GREAT EFFORT: Ben Taylor (left) and Thomas Russel have helped bring home a silver medal at the Junior World Rowing Championships. PHOTO: MATT RUSSEL

Silver for West Melton rower „„ By Andrew King WEST MELTON’S Ben Taylor and Christchurch teammate Thomas Russel have helped bring home a silver medal at the junior world rowing championships. The St Andrew’s College duo were part of the junior men’s coxless quad who narrowly missed out on gold to Great Britain on Lake Galve, Lithuania. The crew of four also included

Matt MacDonald and Daniel Williamson, of Auckland. They were the only New Zealand team at the regatta to make the podium. Taylor and Russel were a part of the winning St Andrew’s Maadi Cup team, which not only brought back the top prize for the first time in the college’s history, but the Springbok Shield as well.

„„ By Gordon Findlater A BRILLIANT first half effort wasn’t enough for Lincoln Combined to pull off what would have been an upset to remember against Christchurch Boys’ High School, eventually going down 21-57. Lincoln came out firing in front of a strong home crowd which turned out to see them take on the defending champions in their final roundrobin game on Saturday. Lincoln put together one of their best 35min displays of the season to trail CBHS, the competition favourites, 24-21 at the break. Lincoln fell to an early 0-10 deficit before winger Baue Luxton took over the match with two tries that were both converted by Brett Gillan. Luxton’s second try was a brilliant piece of defensive work, which saw him intercept a pass inside CBHS’s 22m line before dotting down under the posts. He then nabbed another intercept inside CBHS’s territory, which led to Lincoln being awarded a penalty try from a cynical offside play. That would be the last of the scoring for Lincoln, though, as CBHS showed their class to run away with the game in the second period.

CONVERTED: Brett Gillan converted both of Baue Luxton’s tries at the weekend.

The result means Lincoln finishes the round-robin in 11th spot and now face a trip to play Marlborough Boys’ College in the bowl semi-final on Saturday. The two teams met recently.

Lincoln defeated Marlborough 12-10 at Lincoln High School in their penultimate round-robin game earlier this month. The bowl is played for between the teams that finish ninth to 12th in the round-robin.

Kathy Moore, Aquatic Facilities Manager, says the aim is to get more people swimming, more often.

the poop! The Animal Control Team will be visiting domains and reserves in the Selwyn district, making sure owners are picking up their dogs’ droppings. The team does this throughout the year to ensure our district remains clean and healthy for everyone. Remember, failure to pick up doggy doo could lead to an on-the-spot $300 fine. It’s also an offence to not carry a suitable receptacle. Selwyn District Council Senior Animal Control Officer Steve Clarke says if you are walking a dog in the Selwyn district please be prepared. “Make sure you’ve got a plastic bag when you’re taking your mate out for a walk so you can clean up after them. This helps to make Selwyn a clean and healthy place for everyone”.

“The challenge is for individuals to collectively swim 10,000km before 1 December, while fundraising for prostate and breast cancer awareness. We encourage everyone to come along to work on their fitness and help a worthy cause.”

A number of prizes will be available for those who swim the most laps, in categories for men, women and youth swimmers, as well as most visits to the Centre during the Swimathon.

Easter Sunday trading hours are to remain unchanged in the Selwyn district. The Council decided last week that it would not develop a policy on Easter Sunday Trading Hours – which means that the current restrictions and exemptions on Easter Sunday trading will remain unchanged. The decision comes after a survey of community views on changes to Easter Sunday trading showed opinions were evenly split – 46% of those surveyed supported developing a policy, while 47% opposed a policy. A survey of retailers showed that while 60% of retailers would support developing a policy, 35% did not support it. Mayor Sam Broughton says the surveys indicated that there was no clear mandate for a change. “With opinion so evenly divided in the community, we were not hearing a groundswell of opinion calling for the rules to be relaxed,” he says. “Although some in the community would have liked to have seen more choice, many people commented about the need to keep the day for family time, and to give shop workers time out.” Currently only certain locations or types of retail businesses can trade on Easter Sunday, including dairies, service centres, pharmacies, takeaways, restaurants, cafes, souvenir stores, duty free shops and garden centres.

On the roads this week

Planned upgrades to water supplies across Selwyn during the coming year will help to boost capacity and ensure a continuing supply of safe, high-quality water for residents.

The intersection of Hoskyns Road and Sandy Knolls Road is being upgraded. Traffic approaching from Sandy Knolls Road will need to stop. Traffic delays may occur and detours may operate while the upgrade occurs.

The Council is continuing to add capacity to water supply systems in high growth areas and improve water treatment quality for a number of townships.

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. Cattlestop cleaning and ford reinstatement is occurring on Algidus Road. Pothole patching is occurring on Selwyn Road and Curries road. Flooding repairs are occurring on Kowai Road, Aitkens Road and Wards Road. Traffic controls will be operating at all sites. Footpath construction will be occurring on Dunsandel main road footpath. The footpath will be closed. Culvert cleaning is occurring on Craigieburn Road and Mt White Road. Slip removal and repair work is continuing on Malvern Hills Road. Unsealed road maintenance will occur on Tramway Road. Traffic controls will be operating at all sites. Sewer line installation work is continuing on Shands Road and Selwyn Road – traffic delays may occur due to this work.

SELWYN TIMES Notices ARTS PROJECT FUNDING

‘Swim to Summer’ 10,000km challenge is on Registrations are open now for Selwyn Aquatic Centre’s new swimathon event, ‘Swim to Summer’. Following the success of the Swim to Rio Swimathon last year which raised $2,300 for St John Ambulance Rolleston, the Selwyn Aquatic Centre has issued a challenge to Selwyn residents to swim a combined total of 10,000km in pool lengths in the lead up to summer.

Scoop

Kathy Moore, Aquatic Facilities Manager, says the aim is to get more people swimming, more often.

the poop! The Animal Control Team will be visiting domains and reserves in the Selwyn district, making sure owners are picking up their dogs’ droppings. The team does this throughout the year to ensure our district remains clean and healthy for everyone. Remember, failure to pick up doggy doo could lead to an on-the-spot $300 fine. It’s also an offence to not carry a suitable receptacle. Selwyn District Council Senior Animal Control Officer Steve Clarke says if you are walking a dog in the Selwyn district please be prepared. “Make sure you’ve got a plastic bag when you’re taking your mate out for a walk so you can clean up after them. This helps to make Selwyn a clean and healthy place for everyone”.

“The challenge is for individuals to collectively swim 10,000km before 1 December, while fundraising for prostate and breast cancer awareness. We encourage everyone to come along to work on their fitness and help a worthy cause.”

“We encourage everyone to come along to work on their fitness and help a worthy cause”

Sign up in person at the Centre, start swimming or aquajogging, and log your laps for each swim at reception. Every length of the 25-metre pool or hydrotherapy pool will count towards the total distance. A number of prizes will be available for those who swim the most laps, in categories for men, women and youth swimmers, as well as most visits to the Centre during the Swimathon. For more information, or to sign up, ask at Selwyn Aquatic Centre reception, or email sac.enquiries@selwyn.govt.nz or phone (03) 347 2734.

Arts Festival comes to Selwyn Dive into the colourful life and timeless songs of Cole Porter at the Lincoln Event Centre with Helpmann Award winner Michael Griffiths: hedonism, grave misfortune, enduring love and a legacy that sparkles with wit and wisdom… sometimes anything goes. Written by best-selling author Anna Goldsworthy (Piano Lessons, Welcome To Your New Life), Cole has earned Michael five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Best Cabaret Award at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival.

Easter Sunday trading hours are to remain unchanged in the Selwyn district. The Council decided last week that it would not develop a policy on Easter Sunday Trading Hours – which means that the current restrictions and exemptions on Easter Sunday trading will remain unchanged. The decision comes after a survey of community views on changes to Easter Sunday trading showed opinions were evenly split – 46% of those surveyed supported developing a policy, while 47% opposed a policy. A survey of retailers showed that while 60% of retailers would support developing a policy, 35% did not support it. Mayor Sam Broughton says the surveys indicated that there was no clear mandate for a change. “With opinion so evenly divided in the community, we were not hearing a groundswell of opinion calling for the rules to be relaxed,” he says. “Although some in the community would have liked to have seen more choice, many people commented about the need to keep the day for family time, and to give shop workers time out.” Currently only certain locations or types of retail businesses can trade on Easter Sunday, including dairies, service centres, pharmacies, takeaways, restaurants, cafes, souvenir stores, duty free shops and garden centres.

On the roads this week

Planned upgrades to water supplies across Selwyn during the coming year will help to boost capacity and ensure a continuing supply of safe, high-quality water for residents.

The intersection of Hoskyns Road and Sandy Knolls Road is being upgraded. Traffic approaching from Sandy Knolls Road will need to stop. Traffic delays may occur and detours may operate while the upgrade occurs.

The Council is continuing to add capacity to water supply systems in high growth areas and improve water treatment quality for a number of townships.

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. Cattlestop cleaning and ford reinstatement is occurring on Algidus Road. Pothole patching is occurring on Selwyn Road and Curries road. Flooding repairs are occurring on Kowai Road, Aitkens Road and Wards Road. Traffic controls will be operating at all sites. Footpath construction will be occurring on Dunsandel main road footpath. The footpath will be closed. Culvert cleaning is occurring on Craigieburn Road and Mt White Road. Slip removal and repair work is continuing on Malvern Hills Road. Unsealed road maintenance will occur on Tramway Road. Traffic controls will be operating at all sites. Sewer line installation work is continuing on Shands Road and Selwyn Road – traffic delays may occur due to this work.

Backyard Critters Moths are on the wing most of the year

THE DARK coprosma carpet moth (Austrocidaria similata) is a native species found throughout New Zealand, Auckland Islands, Snares Islands, Campbell Islands and Chatham Islands. This moth is a beautiful green and brown colour with a forewing length of 13-17mm. Its colouration helps camou-

HIDDEN AWAY: The dark coprosma carpet moth helps camouflage it on mossy tree trunks in forest and shrubland habitat. ​

Unlike many other looper moths, most members of the genus austrocideria do not have feathery antennae. Larvae of this moth, like most other species, are restricted to

only a few host species and in this case it is coprosma robusta and coprosma rotundifolia.

WANT TO get some stylish new clothes for very little cash? Or do you need to clean out your wardrobe of things you never wear? Well you are in luck. Lincoln High School year 12 and 13 students are organising a clothes swap later this month as part of their social studies course. The swap will give people the chance to get pre-loved but quality clothing, thereby saving them money and being more gentle on the earth by not buying so many new clothes. The students were inspired to organise the event after learning that the clothing industry is the world’s second biggest polluter after the oil industry. The clothes swap gives people an alternative to buying new items – buying clothes that would otherwise be sitting unloved in someone else’s house. Lincoln High School teacher of social science Rachel Meadowcroft said everyone is welcome to participate and people can come and buy clothes for $2 an item, even if they don’t have anything to donate. Second-hand items need to be dropped off at Lincoln High

Our People

Isobel Hollick

Lincoln’s Scotswoman with a heart Isobel Hollick has played a key role in organising successful high tea fundraisers to support women and children rescued from trafficking and slavery. She spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding Tell me about the high tea and why it is an important cause to you? I have been part of this community for a long time – nearly 40 years. Five years ago Hagar was brought into the community. Hagar is a Christian organisation – it helps look after women and children who are being severely abused and trafficked. I initiated the first high tea fundraiser at the Lincoln Baptist Church but the first one was done by St Stephen’s Anglican Church the year before. The first high tea I organised was called a Regal High Tea. This year’s tea is our fourth one. There are so many causes that you could fundraise for – how did Hagar stand out to you? It has taken the hearts of many people. It is not just the Lincoln Baptist Church, the other churches are involved in ways in running this afternoon. The Lincoln Union Parish, Anglican, Catholic and Chinese churches

are all involved in helping in small ways. They all come to it. What has gone into making the day happen? A lot of effort has gone into the baking and creating the environment for this year. The theme this year is based on the book The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, which is a classic. The story is about the lead character restoring a secret garden and bringing healing to herself, family and friends. It is what Hagar does – brings healing to women and children in Afghanistan, Vietnam and Cambodia. But it also looks into the mishandling of people in New Zealand. Each year we have a different theme. We have had a Mad Hatter Tea Party and The Nutcracker-themed tea. Some people dress up and this year we have got a prize for the best garden hat. We are encouraging people to dress up in early 1900 costumes because The Secret Garden was written in 1918.

HELPING OTHERS: Isobel Hollick is passionate about organising fundraisers to help women and children rescued from trafficking and slavery. PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

How successful have the fundraisers been? We started off with a small idea. We raised $3000 and we thought we were doing really

well. Then, the next year we got $8000, it was amazing. There is no aim for how much we want to raise. We just like to do as well as we can. Tickets are sought after.

Have you always lived in Selwyn? No, I have come from Glasgow. I first came over here for two years in 1974 and lived in Kaikoura. I stayed there and then went home again then came back. I’ve been in Selwyn since 1979. In that time, I have been home twice. What brought you here? I had a brother here and came for a little holiday and then I stayed for a job. I was nursing in the public health sector and Plunket in Kaikoura. I did a lot of preventive work with families – picking up problems before they got too bad. The basic thing Plunket look for is picking up hearing problems and things that would limit a child at school. I used to go into families. You would try and listen to the problems and see if you could help in any way. Home visiting is my passion. I have visited elderly – you look at elderly people getting tired of looking after their spouse or even other elderly people on their own. You look at how you can help. What is the most important thing you have learnt from your time in the public health sector?

of gold and penchant for costumes Each situation you have to take separately. There is no certain way about anything. There are no rules and regulations, you have got to be broad-minded and accepting of people and you have to listen. I take it you find the Lincoln community different to Scotland? I haven’t thought about that – I have been here so long. I came here in 1979. When I first came to Lincoln, it was like a country town. I had a lot to do with the countryside in Scotland – my second home was in Perthshire. The country part and small community is important. The people are friendly like those in Scotland. A lot of Scottish people feel comfortable in New Zealand. I think it is the country environment. Were you into the traditional things Scottish people are known for? I think some people in New Zealand are more Scottish than Scottish people. I have gone back to Scottish dancing but not as much. I am more involved in church work. Hagar has come out of that. What are some of the other church projects you have worked on?

DRESS-UP: Isobel Hollick as the Queen of Hearts at the Mad Hatter Tea Party.

I have set up a healing prayer team. Getting people to walk closer with God, pray with people and pray for healing. I have run home groups. People from church would come and share and meet and pray and study the Bible. The home group is a supportive place. Everybody needs support in life. Celebrating as well as supporting people in hard times.

Are you involved with any youth work at the Lincoln Baptist Church? I have been supporting youth for many years and they are doing well. I have been supportive of the 24/7 YouthWork trust, but not involved. Because I have been at the Baptist church so long, children have been growing up and I have gone to one or two weddings.

You have been involved in a lot of community work. Is there anything I have missed out? I worked at Lincoln Community Care for five years. In 70 years you do a lot of stuff. I worked in Hornby as a public health nurse. At Lincoln Community Care I started the Meals On Wheels service in 1984. I saw a need for doing more. I loved doing the research, finding out dishes. I see you were a regular at pump classes at the Lincoln Event Centre? Sort of. I am not going to pump at the at the moment, I have an injury. Have you always been interested in sport and exercise? No not at all. I have had chronic fatigue for years and then I got better. I needed to get exercise. I went to Zumba and got fed up before I went to Linda Miratana’s pump class for about four years.

What else do you do in your spare time? Gardening, walking, craftwork and code-crackers. Have you got other family in Selwyn? I have got an extended family. There’s my brother and sister and they have got families. I have been married but I have no children. I have precious great nieces and nephews. I call them my surrogate grandchildren – a gift from God Have you always been brought up to go to church? I have got closer to God than I have been all my years. I am at the Lincoln Union Parish at the moment. I have been there 18 months. Being there has helped as well. I think you have got to reach out and find out more about God. I have been to conferences and setting up a healing prayer team at the Lincoln Baptist Church was significant for me. •The Hagar high tea fundraiser will be held at the Lincoln Baptist Church on Saturday, August 26. The day will have handcrafts, jewelry and cards for sale, and a silent auction. To book tickets, call 325 2863 or 325 2260.

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.

New national standard aims to improve forestry efficiency A new nationwide set of environmental rules for managing New Zealand’s 1.7 million hectares of plantation forestry will better protect the environment and deliver significant savings in compliance costs, Minister for the Environment Dr Nick Smith and Associate Minister for Primary Industries Louise Upston say. “Forestry is New Zealand’s third-largest primary industry, but its efficiency is hampered by the confusing mix of planning rules across New Zealand’s 86 councils. The strength of this national approach is that it will better protect the environment while also improving the productivity of the forestry sector by applying consistent environmental standards to reduce operational costs,” Dr Smith says. “A major change with these new regulations is the development of three new tools for managing the environmental impacts from forestry, covering the issues

of erosion, wilding pines and fish spawning. “The benefit of these tools is that the restrictions on forestry activities are related to the environmental risk rather than which council area a forestry operation is in. This change is particularly important as 80 per cent of forest owners manage forests in multiple council areas. “This new national forestry standard is part of the Government’s broader Resource Management Act reforms, facilitated by amendments passed in May this year. It follows other national regulations covering telecommunications, electricity transmission, waste tyre management, water metering and drinking water, contaminated soils and aquaculture.” Ms Upston says the forestry industry will benefit from having a set of consistent regulations to operate under. “Planning rules at local government level are subject to regular reviews and there

encourage greater investment in a significant contributor to our economy, especially at regional level. Forestry employs more than 26,000 people and exports total more than $5 billion a year,” Ms Upston says. “The National Environmental Standard for Plantation Forestry covers eight core plantation forestry activities: afforestation, pruning and thinning to waste, earthworks, river crossings, forestry quarrying, harvesting, mechanical land preparation and replanting. Councils may apply stricter rules in special circumstances where local conditions require a more restrictive approach.” The standard, which comes into force on May 1, 2018, was developed jointly by the Ministry for Primary Industries and the Ministry for the Environment. Support and guidance will be provided to councils, foresters and key stakeholders to ensure an effective rollout.

Funding for water protection project welcomed Government funding for a nationwide project to better protect waterways, by measuring and managing nitrogen on cropping farms, has been welcomed by Horticulture New Zealand. Earlier this month, Environment Minister Dr Nick Smith announced funding of $485,168 from the Freshwater Improvement Fund for a three-year project: Protecting our Groundwater – Measuring and Managing Diffuse Nutrient losses from Cropping Systems. Horticulture New Zealand chief executive Mike Chapman says food consumers worldwide are increasingly wanting information about the environmental impacts of the food supply chain, particularly when it comes to healthy food such as fresh fruit and vegetables. “Environmental sustainability is paramount as it relates to freshwater and the horticulture and cropping industries are very aware of this,” Mr Chapman says. “So it is important to have funding to apply science and research to ensuring the best management practices for our growers to this end. “This project, throughout New Zealand’s key cropping areas, gives us really useful information to target on-farm management practices to meet

environmental impact expectations. Ultimately, we are looking to give growers the tools to manage and reduce their environmental footprint and long-term, robust data and science will allow us to do that. “For arable and vegetable cropping, we are looking to minimise nutrient leaching and sediment run-off – preventing it from entering waterways. “The aim of the project is to improve groundwater quality to contribute to the overall improvement of the management of New Zealand’s freshwater bodies,” Mr Chapman says. The project accesses a network on arable and vegetable farms to measure nutrient losses and collect information about the crop rotation and farm’s management practices. This detailed, unique dataset will have increasing value for farmers and scientists over time, providing evidence to drive management changes on the farm and improve environmental outcomes. It is managed by the Foundation for Arable Research (FAR) with funding from Vegetable Research and Innovation (V R & I), industry and regional councils, and the project cost is estimated at a total of $1,040,168. Horticulture New Zealand is part of the project team.

Gardening Pretty plants with a nasty nature „„ By Henri Ham IF YOUR garden needs a little height, there’s no better plant to grow than foxgloves. These striking and colourful plants can grow to over 1m tall and look fantastic in most gardens. In addition to their height, foxgloves are known for the striking and attractive bell-shaped flowers they produce in clusters at the top of their long stems. Foxgloves come in a range of vibrant colours including lavender, cream, apricot, white and purple. If you’d like to complement your foxgloves with other tall-growing flowers, I recommend grabbing some delphinium, lupin and hollyhock seedlings. Grown together, these four will create a lovely cottage garden effect. Once you’ve got your seedlings you need to find a good spot to plant. Foxgloves will grow most places but they grow best in semi-shade with moist soil that is not prone to frost. Remember foxgloves are very toxic. The whole plant, including seeds, leaves and roots is poisonous. So make sure to wear gloves when planting or caring for them. And, if you have young children

around (with a tendency to put things and hands in their mouths), I suggest thinking carefully about where you plant them. Once you’ve found the right place, dig in a bit of compost before you plant. They like a nutrient rich soil so this will help give them a good start. As you would expect from plants with a bit of height it’s important not to grow each seedling too close together – around 35cm apart is ideal. If you plant established foxgloves you can expect to see them flower in around two months. If you decide to grow foxglove seedlings you can look forward to them flowering in around three to four months.

TOXIC: Wear protection when doing anything with foxgloves.

Use your outdoor living areas Use your outdoor living all year roundareas all year round! For a longer flowering season, dead head (ie remove the dead flowers) before the last blooms open. This will encourage the plants to flower again. This will also stop the flowers going to seed if you don’t want to extend your display of foxglove flowers for next year.

gardening without guesswork Question:

I want to grow some seed potatoes, but I don’t know a thing about it. Can you please give me some advice?

Potatoes are a kiwi favourite and nothing beats having them available right in your backyard. They are inexpensive to grow and it really is rewarding pulling them out of your own garden. To get started, spread the seed potatoes out in a dry area and allow the sprouts to develop to approximately 1 to 2 centimetres in length. Once they have developed, they are ready to be planted into nice fertile soil. If the area you are planting in needs a boost, add some organic compost to your soil and mix it through.

When it comes to planting 

Chris Thorndycroft | www.archgola.co.nz Send us your M 027 421 1079 | E thorndy@archgola.co.nz

Create a trough - ideally in a sunny sheltered area - roughly 15 centimetres in depth and add Intelligro’s Potato Fertiliser at a rate of 200g per square metre. Mix into the soil. Fill the trough with the fertilised soil back to 10 centimetres high. If you haven’t got a garden bed to plant them in, a pot, bucket or container will work too. Just make sure they have good drainage (holes at the bottom).

Place the seed potatoes 25 centimetres apart in a row with the sprouts pointing upwards before gently covering with the remaining soil.

Continue to mound the soil around the potato plant as it grows to around 5 to 10 centimetres high, as this will protect the potatoes from greening and insect damage. Varieties available at Intelligro:

Side dress crop with the Potato Fertiliser every 3 to 4 weeks at a rate of 30-40 grams per square metre. Give a good water after application.

Once harvested store in a cool dark place to retain their freshness.

Selwyn Property SEPTEMBER 20

Selling your property? First impressions count, get rid of the clutter. Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that getting rid of clutter is one of the keys to selling property fast and at a good price. Good storage systems can look cool in their own right, and help organise your clutter. Good storage ideas are abundant and all manner of products are available to make homes more minimalistic. While it’s nice to buy your storage from designer homewares stores, the likes of The Warehouse and Kmart sell many simple products for masking clutter. Fabric storage cubes are a great start for disguising the clutter. They fit neatly into shelves and wardrobes and thanks to competition from the big department stores, can cost $10 or less each. You’ll also find wicker, felt, cotton, woven and metal baskets for a song.

check out bicycle storage hooks as well. As well as being practical, storage products can make a design statement. The important thing is to be consistent. don’t, for example, buy storage cubes in different colours. If you’re looking for really clever home storage ideas take a tip from the tiny home movement. Catherine Foster who wrote Small House Living, downsized her life to under 90sqm and has interviewed Kiwis who live in architecturally designed homes of that size or smaller.

Another clever idea, is to buy a cheap set of melamine shelves for use in your wardrobe. A set of shelves does much the same job as an expensive wardrobe fit out. You can move the shelf heights to accommodate shoes and boots. It looks good, but costs little. Another wardrobe organisation is a Wardrobe Starter Kit from Hardware stores. While you’re there,

Each and every house in Foster’s book uses storage effectively to tame their belongings. Some have done it on the smell of an oily rag, sometimes buying pre-cut heavy duty plywood that only has to be screwed together, she says. Garages and lofts are house vendors’ friends. The garage is one of the few places in the house that buyers won’t be put off by a little extra stuff, but the more that can be hidden away in stacked crates the better. Consider using flat pack cupboards that can be taken with you. “The most effective way of using these is to find a wall where the whole area can be covered floor to ceiling,” “Simple carpentry like this is dIY level if you’re handy, or get a handyman in for a few hours, but make sure it is excluded from the list of chattels on the sale agreement.” Loft spaces are often wasted space in Kiwi homes. A relatively cheap way to open up the space is to install a loft ladder. You will be amazed at what people use

the additional storage space for, once they’ve installed it. Cheap clever storage ideas aren’t just limited to the interior of the house, garage and loft. The Warehouse, Mitre 10 & other hardware stores sell garden storage to hide away things usually left outside. Foldable garden storage boxes that cost from around $99 can be used to store garden tools, outdoor cushions and pool paraphernalia. The next step up is a cheap garden shed for around $200 upwards from Mitre 10, Bunnings Warehouse and other stores.

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

Identifying the true build cost Looking at potential house designs and exploring building options can be overwhelming and stressful.

Even when a budget has been established and building price determined, cost over-runs due to overlooked expenses or additional features can push the price up. Many building companies provide quotes that are based on the specifications for a standard build. Any changes will result in an adjustment to the quoted build price with the new figure likely to be higher. When viewing show homes, enquire about the specifications in each, determining whether these are standard for the company as well as which features and fittings are variances or extras to that package, including the additional cost of these. Some building companies deal with certain suppliers limiting the choice of options and brands. Wanting something different could cost more so browse what is on offer before

signing up. This will help ensure you will be happy where choice is limited. Find out the price you will be charged for any deviation or extras such as a composite stone bench top, bi-folds instead of sliders, tiled wet areas or a sink in the pantry. Query too whether landscaping is additional which it often is. As excessive budget overruns can mean undue financial pressure, take time to settle on design features and the fittings you want, before committing to build with a given company. You might choose a builder based on their workmanship, designs and because you feel you can work with the people, sorting out the finer details later but do work through the exercise of costing plans and features before finalising the contract. Build time can also be a cost. For example,

you might be advised that a build will take six months. Ask whether this is a guaranteed time which some building companies do offer. When a build stretches out it may mean more time renting, a need for bridging finance while waiting to move into your new home, or having the added expense of mortgage payments on a partly finished home. Determine the time a build will take, factoring in the period needed to finalise the plan and gain Council consent.

While it is fair for a deposit to be requested, find out when progress payments will be required. These should be after work is completed. Of course, you will also want to ensure that your builder is a Licensed Building Practitioner and you might also enquire about the registered master builder’s guarantee. Having all the facts and taking a cautious approach will help you manage the financial side of building a new house and protect you from any unpleasant surprises along the way.

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

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

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