Another twist in Lincoln’s parking issues

Lincoln’s golden girl in the pool „„ By Gordon Findlater LINCOLN’S HANNAH Bates is a national champion after winning her first open swimming title at the NZ Short Course Championships in Auckland. Bates, 17, finished the five-day event with a gold medal in the open 400m individual medley

and a bronze medal in the open 100m individual medley. “I didn’t think I was going to come up here and win an open title, so to do it was pretty amazing,” said Hannah. She went into Friday’s 400m individual medley final with confidence after setting the fastest qualifying time. She showed

no signs of cracking under pressure of the big stage, shaving two and a half seconds off her previous best time in the event to win in 4min 48.92sec, more than two seconds ahead of her nearest rival. It was a busy week for Bates, who competed in 17 individual races and three team relays. She

also won a gold, four silver and two bronze medals in the 17-18 year age category. Bates’ preparation for the championships was not ideal. Six weeks ago she came down with a stomach bug which forced her to miss a week of training. •Turn to page 24

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding LINCOLN’S CAR parking issues have taken another twist with painted reserved signs outside a line of shops now having to be removed. The signs on car parks outside an Indian restaurant, Subway, hairdresser, dairy and coffee shop read ‘Reserved shops 5 Robert St’ were put in 12 days ago. But the district council says the signs cannot stay as the shops do not have exclusive use of the car parks, which have 120min restricted parking signs on them. Building owner Shaun Stockman told the Selwyn Times he had put in the signs as a response to clamping and tow away signs put up by the Black Door Bar and Eatery on the other side of Robert St in June. He said the Black Door’s patrons were taking up the car parks outside the shops. Those signs were removed several weeks ago. The district council ruled the Black Door did not have exclusive rights on the parks outside its premises. •Turn to page 7

Tuesday October 10 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

IT’S BEEN a great week for some of the district’s young sporting stars. On page 1 today, we highlight Lincoln swimmer Hannah Bates, who is now a national champion. The 17-year-old is one of the country’s most promising swimmers, and she shaved two and a half seconds off her best time. Lincoln High’s Brooke Whitman (page 23) has made the under-18 national ice hockey team. She’s only 14 and will be part of a side that will travel to Kuala Lumpur in March to compete in the IIHF ice hockey women’s challenge cup Asia tournament. And on page 24, Prebbleton motor racing driver Jack Milligan made it onto the podium at Mount Panorama at the weekend. He is starting to make a name for himself in the class he races in. – Barry Clarke

Hard-up Lincoln Uni paid out $72,000 to recruit boss

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 3 MARCH 2018

„„ By Bridget Rutherford A CASH-STRAPPED Lincoln University spent more than $70,000 recruiting its new vicechancellor, it can be revealed. The university paid out $72,431 to find and hire vicechancellor Robin Pollard from England, who was appointed in January last year while the institution was facing a $5 million deficit. Lincoln University refused to release the cost when asked in September last year, citing commercial sensitivity. That ruling Robin Pollard was appealed to the Ombudsman and Lincoln has now released the figure. Chancellor Steve Smith said yesterday Lincoln was not hiding Prof Pollard’s recruitment figure last year. However, the university did release the $86,540 cost of recruiting previous vicechancellor Andy West, who resigned in 2015 amid concerns

he overspent on consultants. At the time, Lincoln indicated Prof Pollard’s was less than that. Last week Mr Smith was unable to provide a breakdown of what made up the Pollard recruitment cost. Mr Smith said at the time the “significant interest” was with Dr West’s appointment, and it wouldn’t have been appropriate to release Prof Pollard’s cost

because he had just started. “That was in our view an entirely appropriate figure and in line with what we would expect. At that time we certainly needed someone new, leadership and a very good person to lead, and it was important to get someone to do that.” Since Prof Pollard started, Lincoln turned its deficit into a $17 million surplus in the last

year, after staff and course cuts, restructuring and transferring its Telford Campus. In comparison, the recruitment cost for Otakaro chief executive Albert Brantley was $108,000, Development Christchurch spent $50,332 for boss Rob Hall and Regenerate Christchurch spent $42,000 recruiting chief executive Ivan Iafeta. All released the costs last year. Tertiary Education Union Lincoln University organiser Jo McLean said the recruitment cost was “not Andy West ideal”, but she did not know what the market rate was. “One would have hoped they would have done it in a financially-prudent way taking into account the financial situation.” Dr West resigned two years short of his five-year contract amid concerns he spent too much on consultants. Lincoln spent $146,971 on legal fees and a “last day of duty” payment to Dr West to end his time there.

News Freedom campers have negative „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding LITTER, DEFECATING, overcrowding, fire lighting and antisocial behaviour are key issues identified as negative impacts freedom camping are having on the district. The issues have been identified as part of a report exposing the impacts freedom camping has on the district. Observations into the environmental impacts of freedom camping were carried out at Chamberlains Ford and Whitecliffs Domain. It found high amounts of litter, especially at Chamberlains Ford with rubbish varying from supermarket bags to toilet paper with plastic being the most common type of litter. Large amounts were found behind the Chamberlains Ford’s toilet block. But research findings suggested freedom campers were either not aware of the litter issues and it was identified it needed to be addressed. High volumes of freedom camping can be attributed to the excessive amounts of litter. Mayor Sam Broughton said the issues identified in the report were the reason freedom

PROBLEMS:

Large amounts of litter were found at Chamberlains Ford, particularly behind the toilet facilities. ​

camping was getting a bad name. But he said these problems were generally caused by a minority of campers. Mr Broughton said the district council had done a lot to support freedom camping and there are signs and infrastructure in place so people can dispose responsibly. He said the district council

recently asked for further funding to improve toilet facilities in Selwyn. The report showed high numbers with records of visitor numbers between November and March showing 4504 vehicles parked at Chamberlains Ford equating to about 125 vehicles a night. At Coes Ford 2327 were recorded over the same period.

The report stated freedom camping is no longer a seasonal activity but occurs throughout the year. Other findings were incidents of fires lit at Lakeside Domain and Coes Ford, freedom campers defecating in grass reserves and campsites and reports of antisocial behaviour from police and residents. Noticeable amounts of tissue

and toilet paper were found at Chamberlains Ford and Whitecliffs Domain, particularly in areas furthest away from toilet facilities. The report said visitors said there are frequent quests to the toilets. Anti-social behaviour is most common at Chamberlains Ford and Coes Ford. Examples include assaults, dogs not on leads, drunken behaviour, excessive noise and inappropriate use of motor-cycles, four-wheeldrive vehicles and quad-bikes. Concern was also raised in the report from visitors interviewed about the state of the Selwyn’s rivers. About 15 per cent of visitors at Chamberlains Ford, Coes Ford and Whitecliffs commented on the state of the rivers without being asked. The report was compiled over last year’s Christmas holiday period and released to the public by the district council last week. It was first presented to the district council as part of an internal briefing to its councillors. Selwyn Times reported it would not be released because district council staff were discussing the results with neighbouring councils.

Other findings: •Observations at Chamberlains Ford and Whitecliffs yielded a high incidence of litter, especially plastics, and especially at Chamberlains Ford; the campsite with the heaviest concentration of visitors and the highest proportion of international visitors. •Chamberlains Ford was also rated highly by visitors for cleanliness/tidiness. These insights either suggest that visitors are not noticing the amount of litter or feel ambivalent towards it.  •Two per cent of respondents who completed the visitor survey said they used nature/waterways as a toilet – this figure might have been under reported by the respondents;  •The term ‘freedom camper’ has been hijacked, and is synonymous with young international (not domestic) visitors who typically tour the country in a non-self-contained van that they use to sleep in.  •Ratepayers have a tendency to negatively stereotype the young international tourists who travel the country in non-self-contained vehicles, and view them as bludgers.  •Ratepayers view the district council as proactively managing the situation locally by largely keeping freedom campers contained to the designated areas. Interestingly, ratepayers were largely unaware of the large amounts of litter currently at Chamberlains Ford.  •Strong concerns were raised about the Te Araroa walkers defecating in the wild due to a lack of toilet facilities, the loss of traditional rights for fishermen to freedom camp at Lake Coleridge, Lake Selfe and Ryton Bay, and road safety issues at Chamberlains Ford.

Twist in Lincoln car parking issues •From page 1 Mr Stockman said he had permission to put the signs in on the basis of a phone conversation he had with a duty planner. However, the district council’s environmental services manager Tim Harris said the district council never gave permission for the signage. The district council’s position is that no public car park can be reserved for private or individual retail outlets use without prior agreement with it, he said. Said Mr Stockman: “I have since had a discussion with the district council and have agreed in the interest of everybody to remove them,” he said.

In the interim Mr Stockman was unaware the Black Door had removed its clamping and tow away signs. The painter contracted had been waiting for a break in the wet weather and when that arrived he went ahead with the job. The signs were to have been removed on Sunday but wet weather stopped it. Mr Stockman said he reserved the right to put signage back in again if any other business in the area decide to in the future.

In a bid to address car parking issues in the area, the district council purchased a property in 16 William St in July for offstreet parking. Mr Stockman said it is “absolutely crazy” to remove car parks on Gerald St for a cycleway. “You will kill jobs, kill livelihoods, take the lifeblood out of the place and you will ruin it, absolutely ruin it,” he said.

Dogs return to libraries THE DISTRICT council libraries programme for term four is now open for bookings at the Leeston and Rolleston libraries. The programme encourages children to read to a friendly dog, helping them gain greater confidence reading aloud, as well as developing literacy.  Libraries manager Vicki Carlyon said feedback on the programme has been positive. “The volunteer dog owners selected by the Selwyn Dog Training Club have also enjoyed contributing to children’s reading progress and seeing the enjoyment both dogs and children take from their interactions.” Parent Catherine Nicol says the programme has encouraged her son Toby to read. “He won’t read at home, but says it’s fun patting the dogs”. The dogs have been carefully selected and are monitored by their handler. The free 15min sessions will continue to be available at Leeston and Rolleston on a fortnightly basis, with most taking place on the mobile library bus.

Win a trip to the Melbourne Cup FLEMINGTON subdivision at Lincoln is named after one of the most famous racecourses in the world. So, to cap a good year, Lincoln’s version has decided to offer two lucky people the opportunity to visit Melbourne’s equivalent on November 7 to watch the famous race. Flemington developer Shane Kennedy, as well as a successful horse trainer, said the subdivision at Lincoln had strong demand this year, so as a way of thanks had decided to run a competition for two people to see this year’s Melbourne Cup. “We have organised flights from Christchurch leaving on the Monday and returning on the Wednesday, two nights’ accommodation and access to a marquee located at the heart of Flemington Racecourse on the big day. There’s also a buffet lunch and refreshments included. “Entries are from our show home village and we intend to draw the lucky name out later in October to give them plenty of time to prepare,” he said.

OPPORTUNITY: Developer Shane Kennedy points out two of the many road signs at Flemington named after famous names in the horse racing industry. He is offering a trip for two to the Melbourne Cup. ​

Bid to overcome sporting facility zoning snag „„ By Emily O’Connell A ROAD block, which is in the way of a Russian businessman’s plan to expand his Yaldhurst sporting facility, might be cleared today. Canterbury Sports Ltd director Slava Meyn, who moved to Christchurch in 2009, built the Yaldhurst Football Academy two years ago. He is now in the process of planning a bigger complex on the 20ha block of land, which would include a gymnastics indoor stadium, swimming pool, sport courts, and weights area. But the land he wants to develop is zoned Open Space Community Park under the district plan, which does not allow for buildings larger than 1000 sq m. Mr Meyn wants the zoning to be changed to Open Space Metropolitan Facilities Zone, so he can progress the development as planned. Because Mr Meyn’s plans do not comply, the project could be delayed by up to five years with resource and building consent processes. City council staff have been looking into how it could change

the zoning to allow the expansion to go ahead. They decided the best way to do so was through the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act. Today, the city council’s regulatory performance committee will decide whether to ask staff to investigate a way of doing so through the Act, and to report back to city councillors. It would require working with Regenerate Christchurch and the department of prime minister and Cabinet. It comes just as McDonald’s has applied for resource consent to the city council to build a new restaurant and drive through opposite the sporting facility. The idea to speed up the

zone-changing process has been supported by Sport Canterbury, Christchurch Netball Centre, Canterbury Basketball Association, Mainland Football, Canterbury Water Polo, Southern Districts Football Club, ChristchurchNZ, and Apollo Projects – Aquatic and Sporting Facilities, who all wrote to the city council asking it to help change the zoning. Wigram MP Megan Woods and Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce chief executive Peter Townsend have also written in support of using the act to do so. Dr Woods said it has the potential to be a really good asset for western Christchurch but the community must be involved. “I think what we absolutely have to do is make sure that we get the views of the community in the process as well,” she said. The existing football facility has two full size artificial football pitches, four artificial mini-pitches, a full-size natural turf pitch, clubroom facilities, café, administrative offices, grandstand seating for about 1000 people.

Hugh Paterson

Retired vicar’s work in churches, Hugh Paterson, 83, has spent most of his life in Sheffield, working to help the community – both in the church and in the garden. He spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding How long have you lived in Sheffield for? I have lived here for 50 years. For 35 years I was the vicar of the Parish of Malvern. Then I retired and we bought the house and the parish bought a new vicarage down in Darfield. I take an occasional service at St Ambrose but not regularly. The parish consists of a number of churches. One at Courtenay, Kirwee, Darfield, Sheffield, Springfield and Arthur’s Pass. Is St Ambrose a significant building to Sheffield? Yes it is. It was built in the mid fifties. Over the years we have landscaped it and planted trees around it. It is a fairly attractive site. I understand you are heavily involved with planting projects and beautifying the township? Yes, I help do it. The community does it. We planted every year for the last 10 to 12 years. We have planted between 1000-2000 daffodils around the Sheffield-Waddington area each

year. They don’t go very far. We like daffodils. They are easy to plant, and not a lot of trouble. As long as we can persuade Sicon not to have them mowed, they will continue flowering for a long time. They are along the railway line and we have the TranzAlpine going through so we try to make the place look attractive. You have been in Sheffield for a long time. What is so special about the place? We have glorious views of the mountains. A friend of mine who has spent time in the Himalayas has always maintained Sheffield has a better view of the mountains than he ever got in the Himalayas, because he was always up against them too close. Here you get the Canterbury Plains, and then you get to look into the mountains. It is a small pleasant, friendly place. It has a stimulating climate, although I wouldn’t say it is easy to live with. We get wind, nor-westers, rain and snow, so it is always varied. You have to be careful

SACRED: Sheffield resident Hugh Paterson officiating at a marriage ceremony. what you plant. I understand you have been involved in planting projects in Sheffield for the upcoming commemorations for the Battle of Passchendaele? We have done planting projects for the 100th anniversary of the start of World War 1, at the cenotaph. We have commemorated the beginning of World War 1, the 100th anniversary of Anzac Day and the 100th an-

niversary of the Battle of the Somme. This Thursday we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele. And that consists of placing a cross with details of the battle on it and planting a Gallipoli oak at the cenotaph. The Gallipoli oaks come from the oak tree at the Bridge of Remembrance in Christchurch. Douglas Deans, of the original Deans family who fought at Gallipoli, sent

acorns from the battle to his mother. She planted them and one was planted at the Bridge of Remembrance. Our family has collected acorns from there and grown them on our private gardens. Sheffield Contributing School will attend. They will sing for us and their kapa haka group will be present. Their community group will participate and we will have a cup of tea back at the school.

One for each of the names of those killed during World War 1. That is 20 names, 20 oak trees with 20 crosses next to them, with their name and ranking and so forth.

You have done a lot of work to beautify the area? Are there any projects we have missed? We are always improving the trees in the local reserve.

plants from the mountains. We used to sell them all around the world. They went everywhere. The funds from that were used to help the parish. Mainly Europe, the western side of America and sometimes Australia. They like these extraordinary New Zealand plants. It is some years now since we stopped doing it. It would now be difficult because of all the

restrictions put on customs and biosecurity. We did it from 1980 to about 2000. The name of the business was Southern Seeds, and it was based in Sheffield. Tell me about your wife, she was obviously interested in gardening as well. Yes, she was, but she was a professional botanist. We met at Canterbury University long ago. I

was doing my theological studies. Did you always want to become a reverend? I don’t know about always, but it was something I decided on when I was at university. I first attended university in Dunedin. Then I came up to Christchurch, to the theological college, and completed a degree here in Canterbury. I was ordained in 1960

and my wife and I were married in 1961. Those days we lived in Timaru. We moved to Hokitika and then we came to Sheffield. We got stuck in Sheffield. In your role as reverend did you go on any pilgrimages? No, I am not a travelling man. I have never owned a passport. I am not particularly interested in travelling. What do you see in the future for churches out Malvern way? They will always be here. They play a very important part in the community. They are one of several things that bring the community together, like the schools and the sports clubs. Do you have any children? I have three children. My eldest lives out here with me. My second child lives with his wife in Darfield and my youngest daughter lives in Springfield. They are all nearby – I am very lucky. The eldest one works for Colombo St Countdown, my second is a paramedic with St John and the youngest works in the library at Canterbury University. Do you have any other hobbies or interests? My main hobbies are gardening and reading. I just finished a book on the Battle of Passchendaele.

Have you ever tasted properly dried fresh locally grown walnuts, cracked them yourself and eaten them straight out of their shell? – You will never go back to buying the supermarket variety again! Walnuts are perishable and their healthful fats easily damaged. If you’re purchasing shelled walnuts in bulk, avoid those that appear shrivelled, are not dried properly, smell rancid, or that you cannot verify are fresh. Properly handled New Zealand grown walnuts are not degraded through ageing so the vitamins, minerals and oil contents are not compromised. They are fresh, locally grown, and not bleached like some imported walnuts.

The health benefits are well known: • Heart-friendly • Lower Risk of certain cancers • Weight Control • Brain Health / Function • Improve Diabetes • Rare / Powerful Antioxidants • Fresh is Best Walnuts are exceptionally good for you generally, but can cause allergies in some people.

Council supports

Rolleston Men’s Shed Selwyn District Council and the Rolleston Men’s Shed have formalised their partnership by signing the lease on the community group’s site at Dynes Road. Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says the Council is looking forward to working closely with the group and supporting them in their community-focused projects. Rolleston Men’s Shed Chairman Stephen Rushton says they wouldn’t be where they are today without the help from the Council. “We are very grateful to the Council for providing the land, funding and technical support to help us get this idea off the ground. The staff have been so friendly and easy to work with,” he says. Since opening three years ago the Rolleston Men’s Shed has worked on numerous projects to benefit Rolleston and the wider community in Selwyn, including repairing the Rotary Club’s worn out lectern, creating the community book exchange box in Prebbleton, and designing, building and assembling a workshop for Rolleston Playcentre for children to play in. The Shed welcomes all who have an interest in technical ‘things’, such as doing projects around the Selwyn district, doing personal projects or simply fixing things. The Shed is a very social group, and each day starts with a cup of coffee or tea with other members.

A one-way system is in place between the intersection of Waterholes Road and Hamptons Road and 851 Waterholes Road. There will be no access to Main South Road from Waterholes Road. Traffic will be detoured via surrounding local roads. This is to allow for the remaining seal to be undertaken on the new temporary road at the intersection of Waterholes Road and Hamptons Road. This work will take up to three weeks and is weather dependent. As soon as the seal is completed the traffic management will be removed.

Advance notice: Jones Road part closure from 19 October Part of Jones Road, between Hoskyns Road and Weedons Ross Road, will be closed to traffic from 19 October for up to two months while major construction work is carried out. The road will be closed from Hoskyns Road to the recentlycompleted roundabout. There will be no access to Jones Road from Hoskyns Road. A detour will be available via Hoskyns Road and the new (unnamed) roads in the IPort subdivision (see map for details). The closure is required for the construction of a second roundabout servicing the IPort subdivision. The work is scheduled to be completed no later than 21 December.

From starting with just five members it has now grown to around 65 members, who range from teenagers to retirees. The group is planning an expansion at their Dynes Road shed location.

After a positive response to the rollout of Paws for Reading, the Selwyn District Libraries programme is now open for bookings at Leeston and Rolleston libraries in term four. The programme encourages children to read to a friendly dog, helping them gain greater confidence reading aloud, as well as developing their reading literacy. Selwyn Libraries Manager Vicki Carlyon says the programme has been very popular. “After running the Paws for Reading trial in term two and three this year we have been very pleased with the feedback we’ve received from children and their parents,” she says.

Detour

“The volunteer dog owners selected by the Selwyn Dog Training Club have also enjoyed contributing to children’s reading progress and seeing the enjoyment both dogs and children take from their interactions.” Stanley (aged six) and Edward Goh (aged five), are brothers who have both attended Paws for Reading sessions at Rolleston Library. Stanley says he likes reading to the dogs because “the dogs listen and like my stories”. Edward’s favourite books to read to the dogs are books about cats. The boys’ mother Heather Goh says the sessions are very beneficial to their reading confidence.

SELWYN TIMES

Your Local Views Readers respond to the Selwyn Times article on the district ranking as second in the country for most dangerous rural intersections. Readers were asked if they thought Selwyn’s intersections were dangerous Steve Young – In response to your question on the front page of today’s Selwyn Times, I would say no...and yes! I note that in the comments on the Kirwee intersection, most people draw attention to the fact that most drivers (most of whom are local) don’t stop at the stop signs. But I also note that there are no right-turn bays on any of the intersections on SH73 in 100km/h areas except the recentlycompleted one at Chatterton’s Rd. This is a clear breach of the national state highway standards. So normally, I would say it’s drivers that are dangerous, but I think I’m entitled to expect that state highways comply with national standards. Dave Saville – The one that I find really dangerous is where Halkett Rd joins the Main West Coast Rd (State Highway 73). I travel home from work each day between 5 and 6pm, when the traffic heading west is almost a solid stream of traffic. The traffic splits at this intersection, with between a quarter and a third of us turning off State Highway 73 onto Halkett Rd. NZTA re-did the intersection a year or so ago, so it now has a STOP sign for traffic heading east, in to Christchurch, which works well. But, to the great surprise of those of us who use the intersection daily, they failed to make a turning bay for vehicles heading west, that wish to turn on to Halkett Rd. Trying to turn off State Highway 73 while in the midst of a traffic stream of tired commuters going at 100 km/pph, is a scary and risky affair. To compound the problem, the road verge (shoulder) is not especially good at this point, but has to cope with vehicles thundering along it to avoid the queue of up to three – four vehicles waiting to turn onto Halkett Rd. I am

DANGER: The intersection of State Highway 73 and Courtney Rd in Kirwee. surprised that no one has been killed at this intersection (as far as I know). At the nearby, little used intersection, of Chattertons Rd with State Highway 73, NZTA have installed excellent turning bays for both east and westbound traffic. This has perhaps been paid for by newly consented quarries. We need to put pressure on NZTA to also do this at the Halkett, State Highway 73 intersection. I visited the district council’s (“Assets” section) last month to alert them to the problem. They said to talk to NZTA, which I have yet to do. Tony Rondel – There is nothing dangerous about Selwyn intersections the problem we have is incompetent drivers who do not STOP at stop signs, do not know what the rules are regards to keeping to correct lane when turning at intersections, too busy on their electronic devices to spot what is happening in time, travelling far too close to other vehicles. Readers respond to Selwyn Times’ article on the Prebbleton Community Swimming Pool closure Steph Calcroft – We would hate to see the pool get demol-

ished. We got the key last year for the first time. It was amazing to have a pool in Prebbleton where we can just pop down to after dinner on a lovely summer evening. It got the kids out from behind the ipads and televisions giving them much needed exercise. Also my children don’t go to Prebbleton School so for the first time since we have lived in Prebbleton they felt a since of belonging, being apart of the Prebbleton community, their community. It gave them to meet some children who live in their neighbourhood, as well as building their confidence in the water. Especially as the pool is very deep it lets them learn how to manage themselves in deep water in a very safe environment. The pool would be a great loss to the community. We certainly would miss it! Jeremy Calcroft – I am writing to express my concern about the closure of the Prebbleton School pool. I live in Prebbleton with my family. Last summer we had a key to the pool and used it, on average, three times a week over the pools season. It was great to have such easy access to the a great facility. Rather than having to go in the car we were able to bike or scooter down

in less than 10 minutes. Over the holidays the children loved having a fun activity and a a good reason to get out of the house. Our favourite time was to pop down to the pool for an hour or so after dinner. Our children are typical of other children today and are drawn to wards tablets and other devices so it was awesome to have an activity on hand that got them active. Also, with such regular dips in the pool the children’s growth in confidence and ability in the pool was really noticeable. Being in a smaller setting, the pool has a really friendly atmosphere and we found that often the same family were at the pool at the same time as us. We met some of our neighbours from further down the street that we had not spoken to before and this increased the sense of community. We would dearly miss the pool if it were to close. Although there are council pools available, due to the travelling time, we just would not go swimming as often. There must be an alternative site available for the school to build on so that Prebbleton can keep the pool. Anne Bouterey – I understand the pool hasn’t been used since 2005,  however it seems to be a policy of MoE  to continu-

PHOTO: ROSS KIDDIE ally close school pools. I recall a time when every school had a pool or one to use not too far from their own school/home. To me it is a load of rubbish that the pool is too small for class teaching, unless of course a class of 40 plus is expected to be there altogether with one teacher. I would suggest just another excuse. As a young third former I actually taught lifesaving skills to older students at high school in a smallish pool (in cold water of course). The size is not the important thing, teaching children to stay afloat and get themselves along in the water is the beginning. Better swimming skills come once they have confidence and enjoy the water. We have a high rate of child drownings in the country which is unacceptable considering we are a narrow country surrounded by water. My wise mother, a non-swimmer, ensured we learnt to swim at an early age, the ministry and the district council need to be as sensible. It isn’t an option for some parents to transport their children to Rolleston, a closer community option needs to be available if lives are important. The MoE has an obligation to assist in this, the money would be well spent with fewer drownings or near drownings.

Sonja Ball – I have heard and now read about the Prebbleton Pool closure. Rather upset that it is happening as my family use this pool a lot . It’s local and nice and handy if you want to pop in for a quick dip or many throughout the day. The fee is really reasonable and it’s a nice place to be. With the addition of the life guards last year the general behaviour of the patrons has been great. And I am sure all the OSH requirements have been met. I am sure the rate payers would be interested and rather annoyed to know that the amount of money spent on the pool over the last few years is now effectively wasted. There has been new fencing, new and mended seating the exterior has been painted and the pool itself repaired and painted, there has been an alarm installed and a new entry system also the pump has had a few dollars spent on it as well. Not to mention the cost involved in getting a new water supply pipe installed so the pool and school can run separately. I am sure that the closure was in the wind before most of these costly upgrades were approved. I find it rather unusual that the school gets a new principal, and the pool gets closed. The school has not used the pool for many years now as the depth is a problem for children learning to swim. However

this could be fixed with the use of those submersible platforms and a swim teacher coming on site rather than shipping 80 odd children off site. Also teachers are not allowed to teach children to swim as they are not qualified swim instructors – which is why many school children are bussed to purpose built pools with qualified instructors to have swim lessons. Prebbleton is expanding at a very quick pace, the school is land locked. I am sure that the addition of a few more class rooms will help but at some point the size of Prebbleton will outgrow the schools capacity again – then what? It’s all very well bowling the pool to add more classrooms but what about the outdoor space that is required legally for each child at some point this will also be outgrown. Why not relocate the school now to a bigger site that will accommodate the amount of children that will be in the area. Surely the MoE have done the figures. We could then keep the community pool and turn the school site into a few more residential plots and/or another sports field. The kindy may also need to expand. This pool has been run by the community for the community for many years and has been well supported. Can we squeeze one more season out before demolition starts – do

A reader responds to the Lincoln comedy show at the weekend Bob Lineham – On Saturday my wife and I attended the Live in Lincoln Comedy Show. We enjoy good comedy and wanted to support this local event which had been widely publicised. We were very disappointed with the predominance of foul language and lack of content other than almost total emphasis on sex. Whatever happened to genuine comedy with talented comedians who can make an audience laugh without the repetitive use of one particular offensive four-letter word through a show? I can tolerate the odd borderline joke but this performance was in very bad taste and I am very glad we did not invite others to attend with us. Can our top comedians not come up something better than that or this a reflection on the low state of society today?

CONCERN:

The Prebbleton School pool is earmarked for demolition.

Serving up new courts THE FIRST ball has been served in celebration of the opening of three new tennis courts in Weedons. Weedons Tennis Club celebrated the opening of its three new courts recently with a formal gathering of tennis players, guests and community members. The tennis courts have been moved and realigned to allow for a larger cricket oval for the Weedons Cricket Club as part of the community pavilion redevelopment. The opening was held at Weedons Reserve with the event organised by the club’s secretary Julie Cockburn. The first serve was made by Stratton Construction owner Andrew Stratton, who with his team of workers constructed the tennis courts, fencing and volley board. It was attended by district councillor Jeff Bland, who spoke about the unique area and how the community can enjoy Weedons. Weedons Reserve Committee chairman Peter Holmes spoke about the hard work reserve members had put into the facility and the great facilities available for tennis, cricket and golf. Weedons Tennis Club chairman Alan Drewett spoke about the beginning of the club in 1910,

The cutting of the cake, iced by Kirstie Hamilton, was performed by two junior club members – Laura Hamilton and Mitchell Cockburn. Mrs Cockburn said it was a relaxed environment. “A great afternoon was had by all,” she said.

Milligan on Bathurst podium Success on debut at Mt Panorama

RISING: Hannah Bates continued a strong year in the pool by winning two open grade medals last week. She will now turn her attention to Commonwealth Games qualifiers in December. PHOTO: BW MEDIA

Golden girl in the pool •From page 1 “It was the first time I’ve missed that much time out of training. I knew I hadn’t had the best buildup but I just had to get here and give it everything,” said Hannah. Her pace in the pool broke two Canterbury short course records. Her times of 2min 15.56sec in the 200m individual medley and 1min 3.63sec in the 100m individual medley are both new record times. Hannah is currently in Auckland attending a threeday Swimming New Zealand

development camp working with high performance coaches and New Zealand Olympic swimmer Emma Robinson. The next big event for the Lincoln local is the New Zealand Commonwealth Games qualifying event in December in Auckland. “I’m not going up there with the objective to qualify for the games, that’s still a little way off,” said Hannah. “Just to be in that environment and see where I need to get to will be amazing.”

„„ BY Gordon Findlater IT WAS a near perfect Bathurst debut for Prebbleton’s Jack Milligan, who climbed the podium at Mount Panorama. Milligan, 21, came into the weekend with the high goal of getting a top-10 finish and it didn’t take him long to exceed that. The highlight of the week was third place in the second race in the Toyota 86 Racing Series. Jack Milligan Milligan got a good getaway in race two to slot into third around the outside of turn one and into second by turn two. He very nearly won the race after diving around the outside of leader and ultimate winner Dylan Gulson. But the move didn’t come off, and cost him second place to Jimmy Vernon. Milligan also set the fastest racing lap time, just one tenth slower than the Toyota 86 lap record. Earlier in the week, Milligan

showed he was on the pace by finishing Friday’s qualifying session with the seventh fastest time. In the opening race, he improved on his starting position, eventually moving into fourth spot. The Bathurst experience saw Milligan take on some of Australia’s up and coming motorsport stars, as well as stalwarts like Leanne Tander and David Brabham.

Milligan was the only New Zealander in the 36-car field of Toyota 86s, one of the main support class for the V8 Supercars. He secured the trip to Bathurst to compete in that round of the Aussie 86 series as part of the rookie title in the New Zealand Toyota 86 Championship. His attention now turns to the NZ Toyota 86 Championship, which starts with the opening round at Pukekohe on November 3.

JONES ROAD ROLLESTON

Vehicle maintenance is essential for safe reliable motoring When life is busy we may forget to have our motor vehicles serviced regularly, something that is just as important for a late model car as for one that is older. “Now that warrant of fitness checks have gone out to a year for late model vehicles many people mistakenly believe they need less maintenance and don’t worry about organising a service in between,” advises Simon Wilson, owner of Rolleston Diesel & Petrols. Regular servicing keeps a vehicle running smoothly and more reliable yet a myth prevails, that late model vehicles do not break down. Simon says more and more cars have been coming into their yard for repairs, having broken down due to a lack of maintenance. He says, a WOF is there to identify structural problems with the brakes, suspension and steering all checked to ensure the vehicle is safe for you, your family and other motorists. However, Simon reminds that a year can be a long time for a vehicle not to be serviced, maintained or have a safety check. This is especially true if

a reasonable distance is travelled each day, the reality for many people living in Selwyn. Travelling short distances can also impact on a vehicle especially if it not warmed up, as it puts strain on the motor, increases fuel consumption, and affects the overall economy of the vehicle. Tell-tale signs such as the smell of oil may also be overlooked with an owner not realising that this could signify an oil leak. If left and not repaired, this could cause engine damage. A driver might also not realise the tread on the tyres is low or there is uneven wear, factors that can be a safety hazard. The team at Rolleston Diesel & Petrols are only too happy to check over your vehicle and regularly service it for you as well as look after its WOF checks when due. This multi-skilled repair and service centre is equipped to look after personal

Backyard Critters

Fire rage s, homes

DAILY BREAD: Zoe Barczyk and Tracey Booth with their preferred loaves.

HAIRY: It is thought the ubiquitous house spider can live as long as seven years and produce as many as nine egg sacs usually located near their web. ​

Spider at home in the house Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us

THE UBIQUITOUS house spider Tegenaria domestica is a European species that has spread worldwide. It was first noticed in Canterbury in 1940s. This 6-12mm hairy brown spider builds dense sheet web in corners of buildings typically with a tubular retreat in one corner. When prey such as fly is

caught in its web, the spider rushes out from its retreat to grab the victim and retires to its retreat to dine. These spiders are often found trapped into empty baths, basins or jars in storage. It is thought that this species can live as long as seven years and produce as many as nine egg sacs usually located near their web.

Lincoln researchers on the end of white bread LINCOLN University researchers say the days of the white slice may be over, as growing health consciousness drives more consumers to buy grain loaves, or avoid bread completely. A survey of shoppers in supermarkets by Lincoln lecturers Sue Trafford and Sharon Forbes found about half thought white bread was unhealthy. Of the shoppers surveyed, 80 per cent perceived multigrain breads to be healthier than other options. It found 23 per cent of shoppers bought white bread, and 77 non-white. That was a turnaround from the numbers almost 40 years ago, when a 1978 survey of shoppers found 89 per cent bought

BUILD 7 A ‘real show home’ open to the public Every Sunday in October (12pm-3pm) the public will have the opportunity to visit a show home with a difference in Lincoln. Unlike the usual show homes people visit when they are in the market to build a new home, this is a real home on show, where builder Jamie Cowan lives with his wife Francesca and their young son. “We wanted to show people the Build7 process first-hand, with a home that we are proud to live in ourselves,” Francesca says. Jamie and Francesca are the Canterbury owners of Build7, a home building company different from most other building companies operating in the New Zealand market. As Francesca explains: “We don’t have set plans that clients choose from. Instead, we sit down with every client and take the design brief from them, and that includes their seven ‘musthaves’. They can also bring in photos of

interiors and styles they like and we can work from those. “We find it a lot easier to design a house from scratch. Everyone has a different idea for their house, and with our method they get exactly what they want. From the briefing we develop a concept pack, which includes renders, a floor plan and elevations, and this is a free service.” Top-quality construction of the client’s home is ensured with Jamie’s 18 years’ building experience – he completed his apprenticeship and early years in Canterbury before spending significant time in Sydney fine-tuning his craft. As the project manager on every build, he is in contact with the client right through the process. Build7 designs and builds homes for all budgets, Francesca says. “We work within the client’s budget, which can range from a Kiwisaver first home build, right through to high-

end properties, where we work with architects if required.” The company has a range of suppliers, coupled with strong trade relationships that come with being a national building company, giving clients an extensive selection of materials and fittings to choose from, while the services of an interior designer are included in the package. Jamie and Francesca’s home is part of Tomorrow’s Show Homes, a programme presenting show homes around New Zealand that are more innovative than standard homes. A four-bedroom home, it was designed it for maximum light, with a contemporary décor and a good connection between indoors and outdoors. Located at 45 Sunline Avenue in the Flemington subdivision in Lincoln, it is open for viewing from 12pm-3pm every Sunday in October.

white bread. Supermarket scanner data from across New Zealand showed sales of white bread fell four per cent last year, while non-white bread sales rose 1.6 per cent. Dr Forbes said a lot of fad diets pushed messages that carbohydrates were unhealthy, but they did not tell the whole story. “I think the nutritionists need to speak up a lot louder, because there are a lot of things in bread, even in white bread, that we really need in our diets, like fibre and folic acid.” She said bread consumption could also be reducing due to the variety of products available for breakfast or lunch, such as cereals, smoothies, sushi, salads and fast food.

Gardening gardening without guesswork Question:

Now the weather is getting warmer, I was wondering if it is alright to use the grey water (from washing veges, cooking water etc) to water the plants in my garden? Anything I shouldn’t put on?

What a fantastic idea! As we head into the warmer and drier months, water restrictions can be placed upon us at any stage. Any smart ways to reduce our water usage is definitely going to be beneficial.

Answer:

Grey water can be used at any time as usually it is well diluted with rinsing water.

TO WIN!

Email to: info@igro.co.nz or post your question on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/igro.co.nz New questions received by Tuesday 17th October.

We are unaware of any issues that have arisen from using grey water from washing veges or cooking water. It would be wise to mention that if you are going to use the water from washing dishes, use eco-friendly, or plantfriendly liquids. When you apply the water, you should try to keep it off the foliage of plants if possible.

handy hint If you are wanting to re-pipe to accommodate for grey water, you will need to check the rules and regulations around this. It would also pay to get in touch with a plumber.

This goes for all types of grey water.

Otherwise, just remove the grey water from the sink or pots and tip it into a bucket that you can then use to water the garden with.

Ensuring a safe Papanui work place High School As the weather gets warmer and the evenings get longer it is the ideal time to get out of the house and learn something new and meet some new people by taking part in one of the wide range of nightclasses on offer at Papanui High School for Term 4 beginning from Tuesday 24 October. From Art to Yoga and everything in between we are sure regardless of your age or interest you will find something to tempt you. Classes at Papanui High School are held in a warm, friendly relaxed environment and our tutors are supportive and well qualified in their chosen fields. A new course on offer is Creative Candle Making which will teach you to create your own soy container candles and melts, either for yourself or ideal as a gift. Discover more about soy wax, fragrance, wick selection and trouble shooting commom candle making issues. This is a hands on course where you will make 3 full sized scented candles, 6 melts, 5 tea lights and 1 votive. The cost of all materials is included in the course fee. This course is being taught by Jane Alexander and will be held at Papanui High School on Saturday 4 November between 10 am – 4 pm at a cost of $148. For further information and enrolment in this or any of our Term 4 courses

We all learn the nz or telephone our office on 3520701. 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.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

[Edition10datE] Tuesday October 2017

Risingholme Community Centre Term 3 Term 4 sees us continuing to offer a range of classes across the city at Risingholme Community Centre, Riccarton High School, Shirley Boys High School, Christchurch Girls High School and Hornby High School, many of which have become a tradition of Risingholme Community Centre programme. So what better way to prepare for summer than to get out and learn something new by enrolling in a course of interest – maybe something that you have tried before and want to explore further or perhaps you would like to try something new, or to meet new people with similar interests. It has been proven that Lifelong Learning has many benefits with the obvious ones being the continuation of a learning journey, learning a new skill, increased confidence, meeting new people and much more. Our full range of classes can be viewed on our website www.risingholme. org.nz Are you Digitally challenged in our ever changing digital world? Or if you are not familiar with using a computer, we offer classes on Computer Basics or maybe something more advanced such as Word, Excel or Photoshop. If you would like to know more about these or other

classes that we are running, we would love to hear from, you can enrol via our website www.risingholme.org. nz or phone the Risingholme office 332 7359. New and exciting at Risingholme Community Centre is Zentangle. What is this you might say - well if you can’t sit still enough for yoga, or your mind wanders in meditation, or you would like a creative aspect to your mindfulness, this may work for you. This method of drawing does not require any previous drawing ability, it can be a 15 minute practice you can build into your everyday, or you can explore some of the more creative ways you can then use this design practise to make your own cards, images, or decorate products. This class will teach you a variety of ‘tangles’ and get you started on your Zentangle path in a supportive and creative atmosphere, and you can build it at a pace that suits you, within your time constraints or desire as you move through the term. If you would like to know more about these classes or others on our website www.risingholme.org.nz please call the office 03 332 7359

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

Choices for bathrooms Most new homes are built with a main bathroom and ensuite off the master bedroom. The size and fit-out of these varies from affordable to luxuriant. This is one area of the home that can add to the build price though not everyone is concerned about price. If you have the opportunity and desire to treat yourself then large spacious walkin showers with double shower heads, freestanding baths, under-floor heating, tiled walls and floors, and even a bidet may be serious considerations. The size of the house along with the number people, who will live there, as well as the age of the occupants and whether guests might stay regularly, may also be influencers in the number of bathrooms and toilets included within the house layout. A toilet may be located near the garage or backdoor making it handy for those working or playing outside, saving the carpet from being walked on by dirty footwear. Visiting showhomes will afford lots of ideas for dĂŠcor and the positioning of these rooms. Some are now featuring more than one ensuite with walk-in glass wall or

A bidet is an option.

cubicle showers, offering an ideal option to cater for extra adults or teenagers. The more bathrooms and toilets the more cleaning so consider how useful those extra little rooms will be. This also applies to freestanding baths which look grand but will collect their share of dust and grime around the back.

More bathrooms are great where those living in the home have similar work and play routines. On the upside, more bathrooms are great where those living in the home have similar work and play routines. The extra facilities will take pressure off and make for a more harmonious lifestyle. For two-storey homes or single level dwellings where the living area is apart

from the bedrooms, having a separate toilet with wash basin downstairs close and to the living area, will be advantageous for family and guests. The interior design and dĂŠcor of bathrooms is still erring towards opulent elegance featuring large polished tiles, freestanding baths, wall mounted vanities and monotone colours of black, white and grey, augmented with earthy colours or a splash of vibrant blue, teal or yellow. Overseas, one might see spacious bathrooms that seem more like a mini lounge than functional area with features such as anti-fog mirrors, televisions, a comfy chair and large rug on the floor. Lastly, when it comes to an important fixture of this part of the home take time to choose from the wide range of toilets available, looking for simple lines for style and easy cleaning, and weighing up the importance of features like a soft close seat and a water saving option. The latter may be ideal if located on a lifestyle block or farm where water usage is a concern.

A toilet with washbasin is convenient for family & guests.

Tiled walls & floors give an opulent feel.

Freestanding baths give a spacious feel.
