Lucky escape as photos of flood surface „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A MAN has had a lucky escape after he narrowly got out of his car before it was washed down the raging Selwyn River. Images have surfaced of the car swamped in water after a man, new to the area, attempted to drive across the Glendore Stream, off Riversleigh Rd, Whitecliffs, during the recent torrential downpours. Senior Constable Andy Grant said the car was swept about 50m downstream to opposite the Whitecliffs township. Police were made aware of the incident about three hours later, after a farmer noticed the car and had concerns someone may have been trapped. Senior Constable Grant said the driver managed to walk away from the car before it was washed downstream.

He said the big message is if there is a heavy downpour, stay out of rivers and fords. “If you approach a ford in heavy rain stop, go slowly, get out and do an assessment of how much water is in the ford before you decide to driver through it,” he said. The car has since been pulled out of the Selwyn River by the Whitecliffs farmer using a tractor. •Turn to page 10

Residents fire up over pet cremation noise

SUNNY WITH BLUE SKIES

A meeting was first held in June over concerns with about 30 residents showing up. It comes after a non-notified decision was made by the district council for Gribbles Veterinary Pathology Ltd to redevelop its site based at Marion Pl in 2015. The district council’s environmental services manager Tim Harris said the resource consent was granted without consultation because it found adverse YOUR SECTION HAS A GREAT OUTLOOK

effects on neighbours were “less than minor.” But resident Bob Tomkins, who lives in Armil Pl behind the pet cremation said the burners operate at such a low frequency even grade five earmuffs cannot mute the sound. He said all affected residents should have been informed of the development and had the right to object. •Turn to page 10

Tuesday August 29 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

A SOLUTION possibly to the chronic traffic congestion that the Halswell Junction Rd and Springs Rd roundabout causes. If you don’t get away to work early, getting through the roundabout and onto the Southern Motorway means a 15min or so backlog to Prebbleton. This has been happening for a long time now and will get worse as the motorway extension work kicks up another gear. So the powers that be will install a traffic signal (see page 3) at the roundabout to combat the 2km of traffic that backs up on weekdays. Once you get to the roundabout it’s a game of dodgems getting across and around into the motorway flow. That can be exciting, or fearful, depending on what kind of person you are behind the wheel. – Barry Clarke

Traffic signals to ease commuter congestion

ON SALE

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 3 MARCH 2018

RELIEF IS in sight for Selwyn commuters at a congested intersection. A traffic signal will be installed at the Halswell Junction and Springs Rds roundabout to combat the 2km line of traffic which backs up daily. New Zealand Transport Agency journey manager Lee Wright said people travelling on Springs Rd from Lincoln, Malcolm Lyall Prebbleton, Rolleston and surrounding areas have significant delays at the roundabout during the morning peak – from 6-10am. “Some mornings it can take more than 12min for people to travel along Springs Rd and enter the roundabout because of the constant flow of traffic travelling north-west along Halswell Junction Rd,” Ms Wright said. She said there are often lines of traffic backed up for more than 2km while people wait for a safe

gap to enter the roundabout. The new signal is set to relieve the delay by several minutes and improve safety during the morning rush hour. “It is frustrating for drivers and also risky as some motorists try to enter the roundabout when it is not safe to do so,” Ms Wright said. The signal will be installed 80m before the roundabout on the Halswell side of Halswell Junction Rd. Two sensors will also be installed, one 200m before the new traffic signals and another

on Springs Rd, 50m before the roundabout. The signal will only be used to manage traffic during the morning peak. Ms Wright said the two sensors will ensure traffic is not stopped unnecessarily and the majority of people travelling on Halswell Junction Rd will not notice any delays. Give way rules will still apply at the roundabout, even if cars have got a green light. “The green light will give drivers permission to approach the roundabout, but they will

still need to obey the road rules and give way to oncoming traffic once they are at the roundabout,” Ms Wright said. Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall said he was delighted that the intersection will be improved. “I’m pleased for our community that the transport agency is pro-actively providing a solution to what has become a frustrating intersection on our local roading network. This change will make a real difference to commuters.” The project it set to cost around $150,000.

In Brief TAI TAPU TOILET SIGNS The need for a new sign to direct people to the public toilets in Tai Tapu is still yet to be addressed. The district council told Selwyn Times in July a new sign directing people to the toilets would be installed at the intersection of Rhodes Rd and Old Tai Tapu Rd this month. The district council’s roading manager Mark Chamberlain said the sign would be installed by Thursday. XMAS IN THE PARK RETURN Darfield’s Country Christmas in the Park may return but on a smaller scale. It’s been two years since Darfield last had a Country Christmas in the Park. While interest has been put forward to help run the event, it is likely to be smaller and called Picnic in the Park. Malvern Community Board chairwoman Jenny Gallagher said she had discussed holding the event with the Darfield Township Committee. It comes after she received an email from a resident saying they would like to run Christmas in the Park this year. The community board discussed taking the event forward at its meeting last night.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Tell us your views on public transport in the Selwyn District. Email georgia.oconnor@starmedia.kiwi

Youth view on transport Selwyn Youth Council chair Ella McClure writes about the amount of support from Selwyn youth to have more public transport Young people love having a say, and we well and truly proved this at the first ever ‘“What do YOUth think” events drawing huge crowds. These were run by the Selwyn Youth Council, a group of 11 young people from around the district. The events took place at Ellesmere College and Darfield High School earlier this month. It was through this accessible platform we collated the voices and opinions of passionate young people. A focus for the youth council this year has been youth well-being, with the theme of this event based around public transport in Selwyn. This is something we believe helps reduce isolation in rural communities, and a reliance on parents. It is a solution for young and old, with senior citizens, those with disabilities and people look-

ing for a more eco-friendly travel solution invited to take part in our trial. The need for public transport in townships across Selwyn particularly Leeston, Darfield and surrounding townships was evident for us as youth councillors. We decided to go out and see what young people thought of this issue and our plan to do something about it. Our solution is a project called “Selwyn Link” which is a trial bus service in future school holidays, connecting Leeston, Darfield, and surrounding townships with Rolleston. Enabling all members of our community to go for a swim, catch up with friends or head into town using the Metro bus service. The aim of this trial is to collect further data and feedback to gauge the need for public transport, which we will then take to the district council and Environment Canterbury.

We connected with 121 young people over the lunch hour at Ellesmere College, each filling in surveys – until we ran out. A further 198 students filled in surveys at the Darfield event. Feedback was once again overwhelmingly positive and supportive of the idea. It is a definite work in progress, but we are excited to start making an impact on a relevant topic we believe needs to be improved upon, not only for young people – but for all members of our community. Our Facebook page is @SelwynYouthCouncil which is a great platform to share your thoughts and get in touch with us about this idea. Here you can also learn more about our recently established discretionary fund. The fund is available to provide support for groups or individuals whose projects, events or activities help to strengthen youth well-being in Selwyn. We have a total of $5500 excluding GST available to distribute over 2017/18. Finally it is a great place to keep updated on our recruitment drive for new council members aged between 14 and 24, taking place in November.

Readers respond to Selwyn Times’ article on the controversy surrounding a sixbedroom house in Barton Fields, Lincoln

happened around Canterbury University where family homes have been turned into rent-bythe-room investment properties. Some pretty untidy pockets there now.

Tania Bennett – Any house can be a rental . . . are they seriously trying to say that in those suburbs are all owned by the occupants and not a single one is rented? There’s not a lot of difference between a normal house being rented and this one. I mean as they have stated, there’s no noise or party issues so what’s the problem.

Jo Garrick – Good on the owner for buying this house in this day and age that’s a hard enough step. And to keep your head above water you have rented to tenants who are paying rent and looking after your property. Some people just need to mind their own business.

Gael Murray – Typical Canterbury. Students are a huge part of Lincoln and always will be, like the people who move to the country then moan about how a farm smells. Seriously, if you don’t like what makes up an area, don’t move there. Jo Bennetts – Maybe they are trying to avoid what had

William Hutson – A lot of people seem to be missing the point. It’s not that the house is untidy or noisy . . . it’s the use and classification of the building and consents required when building. The neighbours bought there first before this one was built. And as owners stated they would have bought elsewhere with the knowledge of such a dwelling being built.

Reserve Flow with New Bridge

Sharren Wilson – There is nothing “untidy” about that house. Typical of well-to-do, self-entitled people who wouldn’t lift a finger to help a neighbour or put their hand in their pocket for homeless people. Did you ever think that just maybe those people who rent that property are just trying to get on with their life and actually think your homes are awful. Krissy Rachelle Stokes – It’s sad people are so conceited that they don’t appreciate good neighbours regardless of whether they rent or own. Rentals that are looked after and home-respectful tenants are of no one’s concern but the landlord and certainly shouldn’t be harassed in this way by neighbours or council members. Ariana Gifford – Looks clean and tidy from the picture. And they say there have been no noise complaints, will never be a party house, landscaping is booked to be started soon, tenants are polite. Can guarantee they’d be hard-pressed to find any area where there are no rentals. Alex Gregory – Better get used to it. Shared rentals new normal for many in this market. Valmae Hughan – If that’s untidy come and see the house behind us, it’s way untidy.

Rolleston Reserve Management Committee chairman Jens Christensen writes to Selwyn Times about the construction of a new bridge at Liffey Stream In correspondence from the district council to neighbouring residents of the Liffey Stream at Ryelands Drive in Lincoln in July, I note the intention to construct a pedestrian bridge from the walkway between 7 and 9 Ryelands Drive to the land at the temporary (one to two years) satellite school site (the old Lincoln Club site). Considering that there two footbridges both within 200m (one upstream and one downstream) of the proposed new bridge site, this proposed new bridge must surely be a total waste of the estimated cost of $110,000. I also note the support of the Lincoln Community Committee for this gross waste of ratepayers money in the comment by them “very supportive of the overall

aim to increase connectivity between the two sides of the esplanade, better linking existing pathways on both sides of the waterway.” Perhaps the community committee could explain to the community how this bridge will perform this duty in a better way than the two existing bridges that also connect both sides of the stream and especially the bridge from Kildare Tce to Leinster Tce and the short walk via the Moffat Drive walkway to the esplanade on the temporary school site to the point where this proposed new bridge would end. The Lincoln Community Committee must surely have some knowledge of the benefits of this proposed new bridge and its costs that I can’t see – perhaps they may wish to share them with the community. The Lincoln Community Committee responds to Mr Christensen’s letter The initiative for a new bridge came from the district council wanting to provide safer and more direct access from the western side of the Liffey/Millpond to the eastern side where the reserve is. Also to where the primary school is currently occupying the former Ellesmere Country Club site and building. The LCC did not suggest the bridge, but does support it, and they hope to see the grass and

Council rules on car parks

THE DISTRICT council says a new business in Lincoln does not have exclusive rights to use 12 parallel car parks outside its premises. The district council and Black Door Bar and Eatery have been in dispute since June over usage of the car parks in Robert St. The business put up

wheel clamping and tow away signs covering the car parks shortly before it opened. At the time the district council said the signs were not enforceable. Said district council Environmental Services manager Tim Harris: “We have reiterated to the owners of the Black Door Bar and Eatery the council’s view

that the business does not have exclusive rights to the car parks and that they’re available to everyone. We note that the clamping signs have been removed. We are not planning any further action at this stage.” Bar owner Anita Alder did not respond to the Selwyn Times before deadline yesterday.

More help needed for secret garden A SECRET garden in Springston is still at risk of shutting down if it cannot find enough volunteers. The Selwyn Times first reported in May the Springston Secret Garden was in need of more volunteers to keep it going.

But Springston Environmental Community Committee chairwoman Sue Jarvis said their coordinator has since had to resign due to ill health. “We are looking for another co-ordinator who

Shelley Bakker

Career in the printing industry helps Shelley Bakker, 52, has been involved in the printing industry for more than 30 years. She spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding about her passion for wearable art and helping the Prebbleton community Tell me about how you came to be involved with printing? I have been in the printing trade since I left school. I initially got a job in printing but not an apprenticeship, even though I was still working within the trade. It took me six years to get an apprenticeship. I was the first female ever in New Zealand to get the highest practical marks at Auckland University of Technology for a printing apprentice. I was about 21. I have also entered a competition for a female apprentice for a non-traditional role and got second out of New Zealand. How did the home business start? When my second child was two and a half, I thought I had a little bit of time – obviously, I had a nappy brain. So I started printing from home. I have been doing it ever since and my son is going to be 18 next month in a couple of weeks. My business is called Bakkerprint.

design side as well. I do menus, I do art post cards and greeting cards. How were you first treated when you started working in the industry? They told me to get an apprenticeship, I needed university entrance. I went back to school and did that for another year. I ended up getting a job through a friend of a family. I left school when I was 18 and I was 52 on Friday. I have been printing all that time but I have been printing at home for 16 years since 2001. The printing industry has changed a lot. What are your thoughts with all the new technology? I have changed with technology and I love it. I love my recycling, but I also love my technology, and it helps with my work. Obviously the printing from home idea has been a success? I still do it. It is good to work around the kids and family. It is a passion of mine. I love to collect old books. I do the Prebbleton

What are some of the recycling projects you have done? I have taken part in wearable arts shows. For the Westport Wearable Arts competition I did last year in July called Earthworks of Creation, all the materials I used were recycled. My costume was called ‘Maltilda Fuggle’. I originally made it for A Mid-Winter’s Ale Festival in Rolleston last year. The dress got second in the competition. I entered World of Wearable Art this year but didn’t get in. My entry this year was called Menopausal. It was made out of paper mache and the head piece was a very old fashioned lampshade with different faces of menopause on it.

I have started making supermarket bags because I get sick of having to recycle bags and then forgetting to take them into the supermarket. One of my favourite places is at the EcoShed on Blenheim Rd. I have been making supermarket bags out of old beach shades. How did you get into wearable art? I took up running in 2013. My first long event was Rail Trail Rampage from Motukarara to Little River. I did it as a ninja turtle. Since then, I have done other events including the Buller Gorge Marathon. My motto is: I run like a turtle running through peanut butter. I may be slow but finish strong so my nickname is Turtle Shell. From there, I started my love of creating wearable materials. What work have you done to get the Prebbleton Market going? I started the market last October. There used to be an older market a few years ago.

ATMOSPHERE: Shelley Bakker has been working on a range of projects to bring the community together at the Prebbleton Community Cottage.

Apparently it hadn’t been going for a couple of years. I said I can do that. I did a lot of research on the timing of it. The old one used to be on a Saturday morning. I made this one the first Sunday of the month. We have live entertainment, free face-painting – it is a nice community atmosphere around the Prebbleton Community Cottage. Was it a lot of work when you

first started co-ordinating the market? I spent a lot of time promoting it to make it as free as I can. It took a lot of time. The money we make from the stall-holders and the market, we give back to the community. Four months ago, we donated $460 back to community groups. It is all about community and giving back, rather than a money-making venture.

Is Prebbleton a close-knit community? That is why I do the Prebbleton Market. The community has grown so much since the earthquake – it has spread out a lot. I hear you’re bringing Christmas carols to the Prebbleton Community Cottage? Around the cottage, it is in the same place as the market. It is a

Our next Arts on Tour performance has left audiences weeping and laughing up and down the country. Consummate performer Jan Bolwell plays her adolescent self, trying to get her grandfather Arthur to talk about his war. After much pestering, he succumbs.

The Laboratory is opening especially on a Monday (when normally closed) so the whole venue will be given over to this fantastic event.

What follows is a gripping, painful and sometimes hilarious tale of a young Kiwi soldier from the Otago Mounted Rifles (one of Bill Massey’s Tourists) who with his mate Cyril, survives the terrible tragedy of Passchendaele.

Tickets are $25 and available over the bar or call 325 3006.

The play is enlivened with dance sequences set to amusing and original WW1 soldiers’ ditties and First World War poems.

“... Jan Bolwell tells her grandfather’s tales of WW1 with a remarkable vision and perception. Her versatility is admirable. A terrific script. A great performance. A tale well told. Knocked me for six.” ~ Raymond Hawthorne, New Zealand Theatre Director.

lovely atmosphere. We have got a brass band and we are hoping to have a night market, as well as the carols. It will be outside weather permitting. Where did you meet your husband? I met my husband when I was 30 I think. It was after many years of my aunt telling me I should meet this guy and for years I said no. Finally, I bit the bullet and I did. He is a mechanic. They are contractors for a breakdown service. It is an AA battery service. We have been doing it for 10 years. We both used to go out and cover Christchurch. That was in between my work. I was studying batteries as well. I had three brothers and I was very mechanically-minded and I have always been a bit of a tom-boy really. When I was looking at leaving school, I thought I would either do that or some kind of engineering. I liked photography and I thought I would go the way of printing. I tend to be a little bit rebellious. If there is something you are passionate about, try your hardest to make it work and make your passion your job and you will never work because you will enjoy it, which is what I have done.

“This exceptional performer, Jan Bolwell, is blessed with an irrepressible joie-de-vivre that communicates itself instantly to the audience, so that her grandfather’s story is illuminating and memorable, but also surprisingly enjoyable.” - Terry McTavish

Doors open at 5.30pm and the show starts at 7.30pm. The bar will be open with a delicious menu available on the night.

Look forward to more superb performances at ticketed events at The Laboratory throughout the year. Check out our website for these and other great community events at The Laboratory www.thelaboratory.co.nz

Residents fire up over noise

New ZealandFirstSelwynDistrictLindyPalmer

•From page 1 The business is as close as 400m from residential dwellings. Residents first began to notice the sound of the burners at Christmas time last year, mistaking it for roadworks being completed on Gerald St. Mr Tomkins’ wife Joanne is terminally ill with a rare heart-lung condition called pulmonary arterial hypertension, meaning her heart is twice as large as it should be and she is in need of a double lung and heart transplant.  A recent visit to a specialist found Mrs Tomkin’s condition had progressed by 18 months and were told the likely cause was stress and a lack of sleep. “She just can’t sleep and the stress is killing her,” Mr Tom-

kins said. Mrs Tomkins said the noise gets to the point where you cannot leave your doors open because can be heard from the other end of the house. Residents would like to see the business moved to an alternative site. But Mr Harris said the business has a valid resource consent to be there.  The crematorium has been operated by Gribbles Veteri-

nary since 1986. It originally operated as an incinerator room, a component of agricultural research activities historically undertaken on the site by the former Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. The new development has two furnaces, a preparation room, a storage room, car parking space and reception and memorial rooms.  Gribbles Veterinary general manager James Richardson said its location which was previously situated in a paddock, has now been met on the boundary of residential dwellings. He said in the past 18 months the business had undertaken building and furnace upgrades to ensure its services have low-impact on the envi-

ronment and its neighbours. Under the district plan the location of the pet crematorium falls under Business 3 Zone and limits the noise to 55dBA between 7.30am-8pm. The decision to allow the development to go ahead restricted the operation hours from 6.30am-5pm, Monday to Friday and 6.30am to 2.30pm on Saturdays. Residents had concerns over why a new a resource consent to operate the burners was not granted from ECan. The most recent resource consent was granted from ECan in 2003. A ECan spokeswoman said the consent covers the redevelopment. * The public meeting is at the Lincoln Event Centre at 5.30pm. 

During the July floods two men in a four-wheel-drive were swept about 100m downstream in a wild torrent of water from a ford off Greendale Rd in Darfield. The two men managed to exit onto the roof of the vehicle and scrambled up a pine tree before police, ambulance and

fire services arrived. The incident happened at about midnight on July 23. Senior Constable Grant said one of the men managed to get ashore by swimming through the river and grabbing onto the shrubs and bushes, while the other stayed up the pine tree

and was rescued by police. One of the drivers exited the vehicle with his cellphone and called a friend who alerted emergency services. The car was severely damaged. “They are lucky to be alive,” Senior Constable Grant said.

The census next year will show us how we have changed over the past five years and what we look like today.

I have enjoyed spending time in a number of countries around the world – including helping to build homes in Sri Lanka following the Boxing Day tsunami, a water tank for a school in Fiji and teaching English in Thailand. These experiences shape the way I appreciate our growing multicultural community in Selwyn. Selwyn has four sister city relationships, which have been set up to grow greater cultural awareness, support exchanges and education in our schools, and develop business links. Our sister cities are Akitakata, Japan; Shandan, China; Toraja, Indonesia; and Coventry, United States. The Malvern Community Board also has a relationship with Yubetsu, Japan. In September/October 2018, I intend to travel to Akitakata, Japan, and

Shandan, China, to further develop our relationships. This will link with school visits already being planned. These are places I have never been before and may be places new to you as well. I invite you to come with me. Your interest may be cultural, education, business or something else, and I look forward to sharing all or some of the journey with you. All trips are funded by the individual travelling, with the district council offering administrative and planning support only. •If you are interested, please contact Bernadette Ryan at bernadette.ryan@ selwyn.govt.nz, so we can gauge interest and work on planning, which will need to be completed before the end of the year.

Plucky Ellesmere effort „„ By Gordon Findlater AN IMPROVED second half effort saw Ellesmere push Metro Black in their under-14 game at Darfield at the weekend, before falling 24-35. The team will now look to get one win over the boys from the city when they play Metro Red on Saturday. After trailing 0-14 at the half-time break at the weekend Ellesmere came firing back into contention with two early second half tries to Seth Bennett and Riley Watson closed the gap to four. Ellesmere and Metro then traded tries, with Caleb Murphy and Kayse Sisikefu both crossing the line. However, a late penalty from Metro sealed the result. Coach Mike Kingston highlighted the efforts of loose forwards Sisikefu and Jake Pluck who both provided quality metres with their dominant ball running. Following Saturday’s game an under-14 Canterbury Country team will be selected from the Ellesmere and North Canterbury under-14 sides. A large Ellesmere contingent is expected in the squad after putting over 100 points on North Canterbury a fortnight ago. PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY

Reduce your waste at home

ELLESMERE STOCK WATER RACE SHUT DOWN

Council is sponsoring two waste-free workshops next month. These workshops will be hosted by Kiwi mum Kate Meads.

Water supply to the Upper Ellesmere Water Race Scheme will be shut down for scheduled intake maintenance from 11–15 September. The outage will affect all races downstream of Early’s intake. Supply to Ellesmere stock water race scheme will be affected for this time. Any questions please contact the Surface Water Department 347 2800.

In the first workshop, Waste Free Parenting, Kate will teach you exciting and inspiring ways to minimise waste, while introducing you to modern sustainable products for use in the home. The workshop will show you lots of ways you can reduce waste at home, show the environmental impact of the choices you make and dispel the myths about what happens to your waste. Kate is also hosting another workshop called Food Lovers Masterclass. This is a session focusing on education around ways to reduce food waste when cooking and preparing meals. Kate admits she wasn’t always the waste free person she is now. “I used to be the ultimate consumer and master waste producer. Since having my son Daniel in 2005 I have since become a waste free parenting warrior – promoting waste free alternatives for lots of different products including nappies,” Kate says.

Don’t forget to

buckle up! If you are involved in a crash, wearing a seatbelt dramatically reduces the risk of drivers and passengers receiving fatal or serious injury. It’s important to ensure you are not seated too close to the steering wheel or dashboard, as in a crash, your seatbelt and airbag needs time and room to do its job. Many people, unaware of the physics of an impact, feel safer sitting close to the steering wheel or dashboard, putting themselves at greater risk. Remember, the driver is responsible for ensuring all passengers under 15 years old wear seatbelts or are in an approved restraint. If you don’t wear a seatbelt or you allow a person under 15 years to travel unrestrained, you could face a fine of $150 for each belt not worn. People 15 years and older are responsible for their own fine. Police see the non-use of seatbelts as a serious issue and will be strictly enforcing this in Selwyn district. For more information on seatbelts, child restraints or airbags, check the information on nzta.govt.nz or contact the Road Safety Co-ordinator at the Council.

Explore Selwyn – Otira Valley Walk

Every year the average New Zealand family throws away three shopping trolleys worth of food, Kate will talk about how you can stop wasting money and creating unnecessary waste.

Osbornes Drain – a holistic approach to water management The Osbornes Catchment Management Working party has reached a significant milestone to improve water quality in the Osbornes Drain catchment. At a recent meeting held at Council Headquarters, the working party celebrated the successful granting in February 2017 of a resource consent for the land drainage discharge from Osbornes Drain. The Selwyn District Council holds the consent.

COUNCIL & COMMUNITY BOARD

There’s a short scenic walk nestled amongst the mountains just west of the Arthur’s Pass Township. Otira Valley walk is a relatively easy graded track that follows up a deep alpine valley on the northern side of Mt Rolleston. The track winds through the valley to the Otira River then runs alongside the river. The alpine birds and gentle river flow create a tranquil atmosphere with a stunning view of the towering alps.

“Council is working together with Environment Canterbury, Te Ru¯nanga o Nga¯ i Tahu, Te Taumutu Ru¯nanga, Wairewa Ru¯nanga, The Department of Conservation, and Osbornes Drainage Committee to ensure sustainable catchment and drainage management,” he says.

The track climbs over an old glacial moraine, then follows the contour through subalpine scrub and tussock to the Otira River foot-bridge. Melted ice and snow trickle down the mountains creating mini waterfalls along the track.

Time/Distance: 45 minutes one way.

“This type of management of the drain allows the group to progressively identify issues, provide interventions, monitor and adapt, to achieve the required water quality outcomes.”

Difficulty: Easy. Not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs.

The Osborne Catchment Management Working party’s key objectives for the management of Osbornes Drain:

How to get there: The track starts at the Otira valley car park just west of the Arthur’s Pass township. Located 1 hour 45 minutes from Rolleston or 1 hour 25 minutes from Darfield.

· The protection and enhancement of attributes which contribute to the values of both Nga¯ i Tahu and DOC in the network and from the pump station discharge · The improvement of water quality and ecosystem health in the catchment and in particular in both the network and receiving environment · Restore the mana of the wetland and drainage system downstream of the pump station · The avoidance of erosion and the effects of sediment discharge · The reduction of the adverse effects of flooding · Efficient and effective drainage system which facilitates sustainable farming practices.

Dogs not permitted.

Public Forums: Council, Community Board and local committee meetings are open to the public. Time is available at the start of meetings for people to speak on matters of concern. Please notify Bernadette Ryan or your local committee at least three days before the meeting. Township, Hall and Reserve Committees: To list or make changes to meeting details, email meeting.changes@selwyn.govt. nz or phone 347 2800 or 318 8338 by 9am Wednesday the week before publication.

The workshops are being held on Saturday 16 September at the Lincoln Event Centre with the first session from 10am–12.30pm and the second 5.30–7.30pm. Tickets are $25 each or for a couple. Every ticket comes with a $100 goodie bag. Bookings are required – to book visit www.wastefreeparenting.co.nz

On your way through Arthur’s Pass?

Council Asset Manager Water Services Murray England says an exciting process has now begun to ensure the sustainable management of the catchment and drainage system.

Check out a video of this track on our Facebook page.

Free dog microchipping will take place on Friday 1 September at · Rolleston: 9–9.30am · Lincoln: 10.15–10.45am · Leeston: 11.30am–12pm · Darfield: 12.45–1.15pm Please note: · Clinics last for only 30 minutes

“Often we believe we need to change everything to make a difference, in the long term this is true but in the short term it seems too hard. What we forget is that if we all just make a small seemingly insignificant change every day the results will be hugely significant.”

Over the last three years in Canterbury car crashes have caused the deaths of 26 people who weren’t wearing their seatbelt. This is over a third of all fatalities during this period.

The track is relatively level but a few small streams to cross and some large rocks to step up onto make the track interesting and enjoyable to navigate.

Reduce your waste at home

ELLESMERE STOCK WATER RACE SHUT DOWN

Council is sponsoring two waste-free workshops next month. These workshops will be hosted by Kiwi mum Kate Meads.

Water supply to the Upper Ellesmere Water Race Scheme will be shut down for scheduled intake maintenance from 11–15 September. The outage will affect all races downstream of Early’s intake. Supply to Ellesmere stock water race scheme will be affected for this time. Any questions please contact the Surface Water Department 347 2800.

In the first workshop, Waste Free Parenting, Kate will teach you exciting and inspiring ways to minimise waste, while introducing you to modern sustainable products for use in the home. The workshop will show you lots of ways you can reduce waste at home, show the environmental impact of the choices you make and dispel the myths about what happens to your waste. Kate is also hosting another workshop called Food Lovers Masterclass. This is a session focusing on education around ways to reduce food waste when cooking and preparing meals. Kate admits she wasn’t always the waste free person she is now. “I used to be the ultimate consumer and master waste producer. Since having my son Daniel in 2005 I have since become a waste free parenting warrior – promoting waste free alternatives for lots of different products including nappies,” Kate says.

Don’t forget to

buckle up! If you are involved in a crash, wearing a seatbelt dramatically reduces the risk of drivers and passengers receiving fatal or serious injury. It’s important to ensure you are not seated too close to the steering wheel or dashboard, as in a crash, your seatbelt and airbag needs time and room to do its job. Many people, unaware of the physics of an impact, feel safer sitting close to the steering wheel or dashboard, putting themselves at greater risk. Remember, the driver is responsible for ensuring all passengers under 15 years old wear seatbelts or are in an approved restraint. If you don’t wear a seatbelt or you allow a person under 15 years to travel unrestrained, you could face a fine of $150 for each belt not worn. People 15 years and older are responsible for their own fine. Police see the non-use of seatbelts as a serious issue and will be strictly enforcing this in Selwyn district. For more information on seatbelts, child restraints or airbags, check the information on nzta.govt.nz or contact the Road Safety Co-ordinator at the Council.

Explore Selwyn – Otira Valley Walk

Every year the average New Zealand family throws away three shopping trolleys worth of food, Kate will talk about how you can stop wasting money and creating unnecessary waste.

Osbornes Drain – a holistic approach to water management The Osbornes Catchment Management Working party has reached a significant milestone to improve water quality in the Osbornes Drain catchment. At a recent meeting held at Council Headquarters, the working party celebrated the successful granting in February 2017 of a resource consent for the land drainage discharge from Osbornes Drain. The Selwyn District Council holds the consent.

COUNCIL & COMMUNITY BOARD

There’s a short scenic walk nestled amongst the mountains just west of the Arthur’s Pass Township. Otira Valley walk is a relatively easy graded track that follows up a deep alpine valley on the northern side of Mt Rolleston. The track winds through the valley to the Otira River then runs alongside the river. The alpine birds and gentle river flow create a tranquil atmosphere with a stunning view of the towering alps.

“Council is working together with Environment Canterbury, Te Ru¯nanga o Nga¯ i Tahu, Te Taumutu Ru¯nanga, Wairewa Ru¯nanga, The Department of Conservation, and Osbornes Drainage Committee to ensure sustainable catchment and drainage management,” he says.

The track climbs over an old glacial moraine, then follows the contour through subalpine scrub and tussock to the Otira River foot-bridge. Melted ice and snow trickle down the mountains creating mini waterfalls along the track.

Time/Distance: 45 minutes one way.

“This type of management of the drain allows the group to progressively identify issues, provide interventions, monitor and adapt, to achieve the required water quality outcomes.”

Difficulty: Easy. Not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs.

The Osborne Catchment Management Working party’s key objectives for the management of Osbornes Drain:

How to get there: The track starts at the Otira valley car park just west of the Arthur’s Pass township. Located 1 hour 45 minutes from Rolleston or 1 hour 25 minutes from Darfield.

· The protection and enhancement of attributes which contribute to the values of both Nga¯ i Tahu and DOC in the network and from the pump station discharge · The improvement of water quality and ecosystem health in the catchment and in particular in both the network and receiving environment · Restore the mana of the wetland and drainage system downstream of the pump station · The avoidance of erosion and the effects of sediment discharge · The reduction of the adverse effects of flooding · Efficient and effective drainage system which facilitates sustainable farming practices.

Dogs not permitted.

Public Forums: Council, Community Board and local committee meetings are open to the public. Time is available at the start of meetings for people to speak on matters of concern. Please notify Bernadette Ryan or your local committee at least three days before the meeting. Township, Hall and Reserve Committees: To list or make changes to meeting details, email meeting.changes@selwyn.govt. nz or phone 347 2800 or 318 8338 by 9am Wednesday the week before publication.

The workshops are being held on Saturday 16 September at the Lincoln Event Centre with the first session from 10am–12.30pm and the second 5.30–7.30pm. Tickets are $25 each or for a couple. Every ticket comes with a $100 goodie bag. Bookings are required – to book visit www.wastefreeparenting.co.nz

Warning: The track finishes at the foot-bridge. Travel past this point requires map reading and route finding skills. For experienced alpine trampers and mountaineers only. This track is subject to avalanche hazard in winter so it is not recommend going past this point in winter.

Council Asset Manager Water Services Murray England says an exciting process has now begun to ensure the sustainable management of the catchment and drainage system.

Check out a video of this track on our Facebook page.

Free dog microchipping will take place on Friday 1 September at · Rolleston: 9–9.30am · Lincoln: 10.15–10.45am · Leeston: 11.30am–12pm · Darfield: 12.45–1.15pm Please note: · Clinics last for only 30 minutes

“Often we believe we need to change everything to make a difference, in the long term this is true but in the short term it seems too hard. What we forget is that if we all just make a small seemingly insignificant change every day the results will be hugely significant.”

Over the last three years in Canterbury car crashes have caused the deaths of 26 people who weren’t wearing their seatbelt. This is over a third of all fatalities during this period.

The track is relatively level but a few small streams to cross and some large rocks to step up onto make the track interesting and enjoyable to navigate.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Motors on show at Selwyn Fest 1971 Ford Falcon XY GT

Fiona McLachlan and John Alexander’s 1971 Ford Falcon XY GT.

When young, John Alexander walked past a car yard on his way to school. He would admire the Ford Falcons, a vehicle raced by Canadian born Australian racing driver, Alan Moffat who won the 1971 South Pacific Touring Series and 1973 Australian Touring Car Championship in a Ford XY Falcon GTHO Phase 3. John fulfilled his dream when he and partner, Fiona McLachlan purchased their 4-door, 1971 Ford Falcon XY GT saloon a number of years ago and recently added stickers to replicate Alan Moffat’s racing car. John says it handles really well for a 40 year old car, perhaps because it was built as a production race car. This might also explain the 351 Cleveland engine that John recently rebuilt when there was 67,000 original miles on the clock. The vehicle has a manual 4-speed gearbox and top speed around 130mph. It was built in Australia explaining its 36 fuel tank that costs close to $300 to fill though lasts about 500 kilometres. Fiona and John enjoy driving their car. They have taken it to Taupo, Invercargill

1972 Chevy Nova

Vince and Kari’s satin silver, 2-door, 1972 Chevy Nova has been built as a Yenko tribute with custom graphics, 355 decals and black widened steel wheels to make it stand out in the muscle car crowd. With drop spindles and adjustable suspension, this Chevy Nova has the prefect stance and the motor an angry note that lets you know it means business. The Chevy Nova arrived in New Zealand four years ago and was in storage until last year when Gareth, the previous owner, began restoring it. Vince and Kari saw the car at Muscle Car Madness this year. They decided they had to own it so made an offer, before the car was completed. They are not concerned about fuel

consumption having bought the vehicle because they liked its look and sound. It is a little different, due to Nova’s being rare in New Zealand. When restored, the Chevy’s interior was found to be minimal and the engine mounted in a way that suggested the vehicle might have been a prop car in American movies, a suspicion that Vince has not yet been able to confirm. Vince and Kari love to burn fuel and drive the tyres off the Nova. Their Chevy Nova will be at the Selwyn Motor Fest in November, an event Vince is helping to organise.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

25

A lifetime love of motorcycles A passion for motorcycles shared by high school friends led to four becoming professional racers and Lindsay Williamson starting his own motorbike business. That was in 1975 and Christchurch Motorcycles has been serving motorcycle enthusiasts in Christchurch and further afield ever since. The business was one of the first Harley Davidson franchises in New Zealand, then in 1995 Lindsay decided to focus on importing and trading New Zealand second hand Harley Davidson, Victory and Indian motorcycles, along with some Japanese bikes. Five years ago, Christchurch Motorcycles moved from Hornby to their current premises near Lincoln. They sell motorcycles, tyres, batteries and other parts, and services customer’s bikes. Lindsay believes in providing a high level of service. He enjoys the challenge of sourcing quality parts that represent good value at affordable prices and likes to assist customers, advising them on how best to keep their machine running smoothly and in a safe condition. “Whether a customer spends $2 or $2,000, it makes no difference,” says Lindsay. Lindsay likes the day to day contact with

those who come into the shop. “Our customers are great. I value them and their loyalty,” adds Lindsay who advises that their customers travel from across Canterbury and even further. Lindsay’s love of motorcycling includes bike racing. Over the years, he has been a supporter of BEARS motorcycle racing in Canterbury, seeing it as a great discipline for young men and women who become involved with the sport. He is also proactive in lobbying for rights for motorcyclists such as more realistic ACC levies on motorbike

registration. Christchurch Motorcycles’ Lincoln location is particularly handy for people living in Selwyn who can pop into the store on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9am until 5pm, or on Saturdays between 9am and 2pm. At other times, there is a good chance the team at Christchurch Motorcycles will be working out the back so if you need help with a repair to your trusty steed, why not give Lindsay a call on 0274 Lindsay on a 1690cc, 2006 Harley 386 934.

Gardening

Potatoes – the veg for gardens of all sizes „„ By Paul Hoek NOT SO many years ago every quarter-acre section boasted a large potato patch to feed the family. As a tasty, versatile and affordable addition to any meal, it just made sense to grow your own. But as property sizes shrunk, the demand for growing your own spuds also diminished. Not so any more, we’ve seen a big resurgence in home potato growing. Gone are the days when you were obliged to purchase a 2kg bag of seed potatoes to get your own crop growing. Packs of five, 10 or 20 seed potatoes cater for all garden sizes. Whether you’ve got a small or large garden, potatoes are a musthave vegetable. Growing potatoes is a great way to get children into gardening, and nothing beats your own home-grown spuds on the Christmas table. So, where to start? With quality certified seed potatoes. Seed potatoes look just like regular potatoes but are usually smaller, and are certified free of disease, so you know you’re getting the best start. Some of the well known varieties are jersey benne, agria and rua. The type of potato you choose to plant will depend largely on what you want to do with it and when you want to harvest.

FRESH: The best way to check if your potatoes are ready is to loosen the dirt around a few of the plants, put your hand in the soil and gently pull out a spud or two to check progress.

Seed potatoes fit into three categories – early, early-main and main crop. Early potatoes are ready to harvest early, and really need to be harvested early as they are not long-term growers. They also taste a lot better when harvested early – the classic early sweet-tasting new potato. Early-main crop potatoes can be harvested early to get ‘new’ potatoes, or can happily be left in the ground until the top growth dies back and the skins thicken up. Harvested later, they are no longer ‘new’ potatoes, but larger and thicker skinned. And main crop potatoes need longer in the ground and should be left in until the tops die back in

autumn before harvest. They will be larger, thick-skinned and also keep well. If you want to ensure you’re serving home-grown spuds at Christmas, plant early potatoes such as rocket, swift, jersey benne or cliff kidney. These ones can be harvested after about 90 days so, if planted in September, will be ready for Christmas. Potatoes also vary in their make up. Some are called ‘waxy’ potatoes and these are lower in starch and hold together much better when cooking – they are more suitable for salads, boiling and casseroles. Others varieties are called ‘floury’ potatoes and these ones are higher in starch and

ideal for wedges, chips, roasting and mashing. The earlier potatoes tend to be more the waxy types, and the later varieties more floury. If you’re looking for a general purpose potato, try desiree or rua – these are suitable for most uses. Leave your seed potatoes in a light, dry place for a few weeks so they can start to shoot. When the shoots are approximately 2cm long they’re ready to plant. Before doing so, work in some compost to the soil to make it more friable and easier for the potatoes to grow, as well as easier for you to harvest. Next, dig a v-shaped trench about 15cm deep in your garden

and place the potatoes in the bottom of it – approximately 40cm apart. You don’t need to fill the trench back up at this stage, just cover the planted potatoes with at least 5cm of soil. New spuds hate frost, so keep an eye on them and as the shoots start to push through, cover them a little more each week until you have turned your trench into a mound of 15-20cm in height after six to eight weeks. The more growing stem beneath the soil, the more opportunity for the plant to produce potatoes and the bigger your crop. To keep diseases away, don’t overhead water your potatoes excessively. Once planted the rain should be enough to keep them going until they’re ready for harvesting. I also recommend covering your potato crop with some insect-proof netting which will keep out the potato-tomato psyllid, a small insect that can cause a lot of damage. The best way to tell if your potatoes are ready is to ‘tickle’ a few up to check. Get out your trowel and loosen the dirt around a few of your potato plants, put your hand in the soil and gently pull out a spud or two to check progress. If your potatoes are small, cover them up again with dirt and leave them to grow.

Mixed Two

Emma milburn & JacquElinE morrEn Little River Gallery will be presenting works by two artists, Emma Milburn and Jacqueline Morren in their new exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ from this Saturday September 2nd. They are bringing together different geographical cultures, using different media and materials, both with a strong environmental focus from the manmade and natural world. Their work is fabricated by using old traditional techniques yet with a contemporary edge. Emma Milburn’s paintings depict elements that are influenced by the natural environment of remote and isolated South Island wilderness areas and her interaction within this. As a Wilderness Search Dog handler and Visual Tracker, Emma is acutely tuned in to analyse detail along with the ‘big picture’.

Saturday and Sunday Breakfast from 9am

Colour, shape, shine, shadow, contours,movement and texture influence Emma’s abstract painting style. ”The juxtaposition between my experiences of wilderness, and an urban environment of playing and writing music also bring an awareness of the interaction between space, time and repetition.”

‘Monowai’ original painting by Emma Milburn from the exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ at Little River Gallery from September 2nd

Jacqueline Morren’s fine silver and Pounamu jug ‘Punctuated Equilibrium’ from the exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ at Little River Gallery from September 2nd

For Jacqueline Morren this body of work is a new direction. She sets herself a big challenge to sculpt without training or access to technical tools. At times this has resulted in her having to create her own implements, to aid the stretching & curving of the silver out of one piece, without the use of soldering.

“Maker’s marks are left intentionally; I have no inclination towards smooth perfection. I love discovering the magical combination of metals & Jade until it feels right, usually after a long process. This enables the wonderful greenstone to come to life, to its fullest potential.” The artwork is layered with era’s bygone, present and anticipated future innovation.

The exhibition is running from 2nd until 27th September. For more information, please visit www.littlerivergallery.com

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

Building on a corner section

Corner sites are often overlooked, as many people opt for standard sections that are perceived as offering more privacy. Callum McGhie, Design and Sales Consultant for Homes by Maxim, suggests corner sections are the unsung heroes due to their two open boundaries affording more opportunity to capture uninterrupted sun into a home as well as convenience with multiple points of access. Jim Painter from First National Real Estate supports this view. He says corner sections give a home a street presence and grander vista. They also allow people who enjoy gardening to create an environment to share with others. While corner sections are no cheaper, they can be slower to sell due to buyers factoring in the cost of additional fencing or hedges to gain privacy and secluded areas. “Purchasers of corner sections often look to make them private whereas these sites show off a home’s design and landscaping,” advises Jim. Smaller corner sites do have their

supporters, often being popular with homebound residents such as the elderly, who may enjoy watching the activity in the neighbourhood. Callum believes the pros of a corner site outweigh the cons. “Multiple points of access translate to more off-street parking, offering a place for a boat, caravan or motorhome and the opportunity to capture more sun into the home which is a real plus,” suggests Callum. Both Callum and Jim emphasise that corner sections on quiet residential streets offer lots of potential yet if located on a busy street where traffic slows down then accelerates when turning the corner, there are more challenges. Callum who has a background in and passion for good design enjoys the challenge of creating a plan that fits a client’s parameters and while section size is a factor generally more privacy from neighbouring properties can be achieved with a corner site. “Many people think their home will be on view yet with clever design there’s

potential for more outdoor living space without being aware there’s a street nearby,” suggests Callum. While subdivision covenants will influence what can be done with fencing and other aspects of building, Callum says a reputable building company will factor this in when designing and siting a home on a corner section. “Standard plans often don’t lend themselves to a corner site and a

collaborative approach is needed in achieving a client’s goals,” adds Callum who admits to loving the challenge of producing a unique design that works for each and every given environment. Corner sections have potential. Look for a building company that will work with you so you end up with a design that enhances all the benefits of the site, maximising privacy, outdoor living space and sunshine.
