Car driver crossed blindly in front of bus Crash could have ended in disaster „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding MORE DETAILS have emerged of how lucky passengers on a bus, and the driver of the car it collided with, were in a crash at the intersection of Dawsons and Jones Rds in Rolleston. Police revealed yesterday the driver who caused the crash followed another vehicle across Jones Rd from Dawsons Rd at about 20km/h without apparently checking if vehicles were coming. Said Constable Nick Lewis: “He came up behind another car going through the intersection and because the other car was going through, he just assumed it was safe and followed the other car through without stopping.” The bus was travelling at about 85km/h. The bus driver took evasive action, but the vehicles collided. The bus stopped under trees in a

paddock. The car was extensively damaged. Luckily no-one was injured. But Constable Lewis said the crash could have ended in disaster. He said the bus driver’s only option was to swerve left. It avoided the bus broad-siding the car. “He did what any prudent driver would do in an attempt to avoid a sudden obstruction,” Constable Lewis said. “A bus that size isn’t going to stop on time . . . he tried braking and it happened so quick,” The intersection is known for its major crashes. In 2015, a concrete truck rolled into a hedge after it was hit by a van load of tourists who failed to stop. But Constable Lewis said it is not the intersection that is dangerous; it is people choosing to ignore the warning signs.  “It has got stops signs there that are clearly visible . . . but

LUCKY: Police say the collision between a car and a bus at Rolleston could have ended in disaster.

for some reason when I am on patrol, I see people going through there at high speeds – 50, 60, 70km/h – and most of them are locals,” he said. Constable Lewis said any given week, multiple people will ignore the stop sign.  The car driver was fined $150 for failing to stop at an intersection, said Constable Lewis.

from the editor’s desk THERE’S A message that comes across loud and clear from our front page article today: Be wary of the other driver. A clown from Christchurch came close to causing major carnage at the Dawsons/ Jones Rds intersection – because he didn’t stop or look when he crossed Dawsons Rd and into the path of a bus. The skill of the bus driver in avoiding a direct broadside hit was admirable. A bus at 85km/h powering into a car is not going to be a good outcome. The car driver would have likely been killed; the bus driver and his passengers would have been seriously injured, or worse. But it’s not only the clowns from Christchurch to worried about – local drivers too are a problem. - Barry Clarke

News Planning staff in short supply „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A SHORT supply of town planning staff across the country is causing issues as Selwyn’s district plan review gets underway. A report written by district plan committee chairman Tim Harris said one of the “major challenges” it had dealt with over the past two years was the ability to attract and then retain quality staff. The report was discussed at the committee’s meetTim Harris ing last week. Mr Harris said it has two vacancies for town planning staff it had been unable to appoint.   Currently, the district council has seven town planning staff working on the project with 10 staff employed all together. “This is a nationwide thing. Planners across the country are fairly thin on the ground...a lot of them are in consultancies,” Mr Harris said.  His report said the review has relied heavily on external con-

sultants and this has had some budgetary consequences. “This continues to be a major factor and a risk to the review process,” it said.  But Mr Harris said the cost of employing external consultants are not estimated yet.  “That is part of that pool of money budgeted for the forthcoming years to get through the process,” he said. Selwyn’s district plan review could cost between $3.5 to $5 million which will be imple-

mented over the coming years. Mr Harris said it is difficult to gauge the costs of external consultants and it depends on the scale of submissions and issues that come out of the consultation. The plan is legally required to be reviewed every 10 years. It is estimated costs including employing external consultants, consultation with the public, organising hearings, commissioners, GIS mapping could add up to $1 to $ 2 million a year.

Wednesday December 13 2017

Mr Harris said when it needs specialised pieces of work done it will pick out the consultants needed from its supply panel, they will complete the work before sending through the bill. The district council has a supply panel of about 22 consultants specialising in areas including arboriculture, architecture, water, earthquakes and urban design.  A draft of the district plan review may not be ready until 2019.   The first round of consultation with the public is due to begin in July next year with consultation having already begun with targeted landowners. Mr Harris’ report also discussed was difficulty in developing a communications engagement process. An online platform is expected to be launched in the new year, which will include agendas, information, notices of consultation and articles on progress made. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What issues do you think needs to be addressed in the district plan review?

In Brief ADDITIONAL PARKING A report looking at additional car parking options across Selwyn is still to be completed. Selwyn Times was told in October district council staff were preparing an options report on additional car parking for consideration by the property committee in November. A district council spokesman said the report was still being finalised. “Discussion with property owners are ongoing and are confidential to them and the district council,” he said. No further consultation is planned as the car-park developments being currently considered are part of the Lincoln Town Centre Masterplan which was consulted on and adopted in May. BROOM REMOVAL The scrub weed broom, described as “rampant” at the edge of Lake Coleridge Cemetery, may be removed before the end of the year. The district council is implementing a plan to spray all the broom within 5m of the area. The issue was first raised in July in a Lake Coleridge Community Committee meeting agenda where it was described in the report as “becoming rampant”. A district council spokesman said the work might be done before Christmas.

Local hero’s thrifty community work LOCAL HERO: Heather Wilson, a winner of the Kiwibank Local Hero Awards, in her thrift shop Twice as Nice in Burnham. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding WHEN A thrift shop in Burnham nearly closed three years ago, Heather Wilson took it upon herself to ensure it stayed open.  Mrs Wilson had volunteered at the thrift shop Twice as Nice for 12 years before she took it on as a private enterprise – without taking a single wage for herself. The shop was a military initiative, set up to support communities affected by the conflict in Timor, where New Zealand military personal were deployed. When decisions were made that could have seen its closure, Mrs Wilson took the shop on herself to continue supporting people in the Burnham community. Now her work has been recognised with a Kiwibank award. She was one of three Selwyn residents last week to receive a Local Hero Award. Mrs Wilson was recognised along with Prebbleton’s Christopher Martin and Rolleston’s Chris Allan. Mr Martin is the founder and lead consultant for 4YP (For Young People) and has worked in

the youth development sector for more than 30 years. Mr Allan has been helping at-risk youth in the Canterbury

region for many years through his organisation The Joshua Foundation. Mrs Wilson said like most

volunteers, she hoped to slip under the radar and the person who nominated her had a lot to answer for.

“We are a little fish in a big pond but philanthropically are trying to make a difference in our own backyard,” she said. The shop was started to help those affected by the Timor conflict when people were donating goods to be sent over to orphanages and hospitals. “After a while, no-one could afford the freight to send the tangible goods over so they decided to set up this thrift shop and sell everything,” she said. The shop, made up of about seven volunteers also works to support the Selwyn community. It has also shifted its focus to the Pacific Islands, sending over goods to communities affected by natural disasters. The shop sells its donated items on a 50-50 commission. Mrs Wilson has also used the shop to help fundraise for events including the annual Christmas grotto and fete, and supported a family going to the Invictus Games.

Fire could have been disastrous „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A SMALL electrical fire at Lincoln Primary School could have been disastrous if it had happened during the night. Lincoln volunteer fire brigade chief fire officer Jeremy Greenwood said the fire at about 7.40am on Tuesday was detected by a staff member. “A staff member arrived and smelled the smoke and rang us straight away,” he said. Fire fighters responded quickly to the fire located in the roof of the foyer of the junior campus and extinguished it, he said. “I think it has been lucky to be discovered when it was. Perhaps if it had started in early evening or after people had left it possibly could have been more of an issue,” Mr Greenwood said. Fire fighters had to remove parts of the ceiling to locate the the fire. While he was unsure of the cause, Mr Greenwood said it appeared to be an electrical fault. As a result of the electrical damage the junior campus lost power and about 180 pupils have been shifted over to Lincoln High School until the beginning of the new school year.

BURNT: Damage caused by a small electrical fire at Lincoln Primary School which has left its junior campus without power.

Principal Vivienne Butcher said the school was incredibly lucky the building had been closed all night and air had not been circulating the front foyer. “It was just charring … but as soon as air was circulating with that front door open that heat

„„ By Andrew King FIRE RESTRICTIONS have been imposed in the Selwyn district as summer temperatures soar. The restrictions came into force at midnight on Saturday. Open fires and rubbish burning is prohibited without a permit. Anyone wanting to burn off stubble will need to phone Fire and Emergency New Zealand to get advice on the required conditions. Gas cookers and barbecues and contained barbecues are allowed as are fires if they are lit inside a drum with a lid, have a flue or can be spark arrested. Rural principal fire officer for Selwyn and Christchurch, Darrin Woods, said there could be more restrictions on the way if the conditions don’t ease up. “We could bring in a prohibited fire season where restrictions are more strict,” he said. Rain is predicted today and tomorrow across the district with a high expected of 19 deg C tomorrow before the clouds clear on Thursday and Friday with temperatures in the mid-20.

long it would be until power would be switched back on at the junior campus. Mrs Butcher said the school made a decision to not go back to its junior campus until next year to make way for repairs needed. She said the leadership team at the high school has been fantastic – rescheduling classes to open up a whole block for the 180 pupils to use. “We are being well looked after by the other educators in the area and that is nice,” Mrs Butcher said. The school would like to thank the high school for looking after its pupils. Deputy principal Lara Taylor said the two schools shared a strong relationship and it was grateful to the high school for opening up its learning spaces.

UNDER THE MICROSCOPE: The district council will review its Gambling Venues

Policy. ​

Poker machine review aims to minimise harm from gambling „„ By Georgia O’ConnorHarding POKER MACHINES across Selwyn will be reviewed as part of a legal requirement every three years. The public will get to have their say on the district council’s Gambling Venues Policy in March as part of the review. It aims to control the growth of gambling in Selwyn and to minimise harm caused by gambling. Selwyn has 112 poker machines located across the district. Rolleston has 35 poker machines while Lincoln 15, Darfield 14, and Prebbleton nine. Latest quarterly figures

from The Department of Internal Affairs showed gaming machine expenditure in Selwyn from July to September was $977,922. The district council’s project manager John Christensen said it is currently seeking feedback from stakeholders. Stakeholders include poker machine venues, societies operating poker machines, the Gambling Helpline, the Problem Gambling Foundation, Ngai Tahu and the Salvation Army. The existing policy was first adopted in March 2015, with the policy required to be reviewed on a three-yearly cycle. Mr Christensen said

Christmas comes to Flemington CHRISTMAS HAS made its way to Flemington subdivision in Lincoln. The free annual community Christmas event was held recently on the Flemington Reserve. First National Real Estate Progressive director Sue Mullins said it was a hot day with hats and sunscreen put to good use. She said there were balloons for the young children and the kid’s bouncy castle this year was a popular attraction. The day had live music from musicians The Butlers, keeping the mood of the day light and breezy. The Lincoln Volunteer Fire Brigade provided the young members of the community the thrill of climbing into the cab of a truck. Mrs Mullins said Flemington developers have given a generous donation to the brigade. . “Given that First National are the supporters of the National Burns Centre throughout New Zealand this is a fantastic fit,” she said. The nationwide company’s charitable trust First National Charitable Foundation are sponsors and supporters of the National Burn Centre. First National Real Estate Progressive are the exclusive listing agent for the Flemington subdivision. The day also included Santa arriving on a Harley-Davidson before children took part in a joyful lolly scramble. Flemington developers donated five hams from Peter Timbs Meats which were given away to the winners of the draws. Other attractions was The Edge sausage sizzle, and various stall holders from the Lincoln community. Mrs Mullins said the the event will be back next year bigger and better than before.

LUCKY WINNER: Flemington developer Shane Kennedy with Aadon Piercy who was one of the winners to receive a ham from Peter Timbs Meats.

POPULAR ATTRACTION: Children Ciara, Sean and Paige on the children’s bouncy castle.

Public gives feedback on water „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE PUBLIC has given their feedback on a series of seminars aimed at reducing tensions over how water issues in the Selwyn-Waihora catchment are managed. Suggestions ranging from shutting down intensive pig farming on the banks of Selwyn to creating more wetlands was collated into a recent Environment Canterbury report. It was discussed at the Selwyn Waihora Zone Allen Lim Committee last week. It comes after the committee began the series in June in a bid to reduce tensions between ECan and residents. In the final seminar series held in September, participants were asked to discuss what needed to be done to reduce water issues. About 30 participants’ suggestions were listed in the report with possible responses made by

PROBLEMATIC: A key water concern in Selwyn has been the Central Plains Water scheme which could lead to intensification of agriculture and a higher nitrogen load going into Lake Ellesmere/Te Waihora.

ECan staff. Zone committee chairman Allen Lim said while it was good to

get feedback, some of it covered complex issues which will take a long time for ECan staff to

answer. It was not decided if the draft responses will be sent out to the

participants with plans for ECan to continuing refining answers into the next year. Mr Lim said a lot of the ideas such as banning intensive pig farming and creating more wetland are not new ideas. “We were always going to create more wetland, that was basically what was required. As for stopping our pig farming along the river...if they have got resource consent to carry on doing what they do now it is not easy to stop,” he said. Water has been a cause of contention with issues coming to a head in May when about 20 residents took a stand supporting ECan councillor Lan Pham about the way water is managed. A key concern has been the Central Plains Water scheme which could lead to intensification of agriculture and a higher nitrogen load going into Lake Ellesmere/Te Waihora. Selwyn Waihora Water Improvement Mission member Mike Glover said he felt like the issues was being put on to the community to resolve. “I found some of the seminars strange...they are definitely try-

management

West Melton pupils still going strong

Feedback made by residents to improve water issues in Selwyn: •Level of nitrates can be dramatically reduced by changing ryegrass dominated pasture to a mixed sward. •Increasing plant based protein, vegetable based protein. •Shut down intensive pig farming on the banks of the Selwyn. •Create more wetlands. “I found some of the seminars strange...they are definitely trying to put the community minds at rest. My concerns weren’t put to rest,” he said. He said at one meeting a dairy farmer representative told the public everyone can help by having shorter showers. “Which is kind of disingenuous when you think about it. You go out on the plains right now, there will be irrigators going like billy-o,” Mr Glover said. It is unlikely another water seminar series will be held for awhile due to high costs, Mr Lim said.

•Focus on science-based decisions. •Improve Environment Canterbury monitoring/ regulation of installation of new wells drilled into aquifers. •If nitrates are an issue in shallow water supplies then testing regime must be an option – programme to implement.

•Make sure Pines Waste Water Treatment Plant stage 2 has some storage to allow irrigation of nitrate rich water to cease during times of high soil moisture. •Discussion around how much all water users charged. • Involve all parties in the “real” decision making.

But he said the committee is working on ways to get the message of water management through to the community. “We want to reassure people we are doing everything we can,” Mr Lim said. Their latest initiative is The

People’s Pumpkin Project which aims to raise the public’s awareness of the considerations when growing food, including water management.

THE END of year is nigh, but West Melton School pupils are showing no signs of slowing down. From testing out their golf skills to taking part in the Canterbury Triathlon - it has been another busy term for the school. Recently, the school’s Ti Kouka and Totara communities (year 4 to year 6) had an opportunity to test their skills in golf. Promotions and marketing officer Rita Spadoni said the entire school has been taking lessons with Canterbury Golf and it was time to test the green. “There may have been no ‘birdies’ or ‘eagles’ but an enjoyable day was had by all,” she said. Pupils also took part in competing in the Canterbury Triathlon held at Lake Pegasus recently. With more than 400 other students taking part, West Melton School achieved solid results.

Ella McClure Our People Satisfying endless thirst to learn PRIVILEGE: Ella McClure after being appointed national cadet of the year.

Ellesmere College year 13 student Ella McClure, was named St John national cadet of the year for 2017. She is also been the chair of the Selwyn Youth Council. She talks to Nicole Ashby What was the driving force behind you joining St John back in 2010? Like so many youth members, I started the programme because I wanted to fulfil what remains an endless thirst to learn new things. I have always had a passion for helping people and knew from a young age that I wanted a career in the medical field. Joining the Ellesmere division seemed like a good way to help me get there. At the time I did not realise the lifelong relationships and skills I would develop. I also had no idea how often I would be pushed outside of my comfort zone and grow as a result. The programme has shaped me into the person I have become today, joining St John Youth would have to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. Throughout your time in St John what has made you stay committed? With no hesitation, it would

be the people I have been able to meet during my time in St John. Often described as a family, you are surrounded by so many likeminded individuals. I have made some incredible friends through St John Youth, they share the same inner passion and drive. Meeting young people not just from my local division, but across the South Island, the country and even internationally, after a trip to the international cadet camp in Hong Kong, has been a real highlight. When you joined did you ever think you would become the national cadet of the year? Growing up I was always inspired by the cadet of the years. They were amazing role models, offering immense support and encouragement to younger youth members. I had always aspired to be Canterbury district cadet of the year but never imagined being selected as both the South Island region and national cadet of the year. It is very clear that in St John you get out of the youth programme what you put into it. Right from the beginning,

Don’t miss out - the First time ever

I was aiming high, having fun and giving everything a go. It is quite incredible to reflect on what many cadets, including myself, have been able to achieve as a result of this mindset. Being a national cadet must be a time-consuming role, how have you been able to manage your time with that, being deputy head girl, chair of the Selwyn Youth Council and just normal life? The role of national cadet of the year is one of great privilege but also great responsibility, there is a certain amount of time you need to invest into the role. This year was definitely action-packed, but I was so lucky to have an incredible team of district cadets of the year and leaders helping me every step of the way. St John is very understanding that school and family come first. At the beginning of 2017 I set a number of goals I wanted to achieve over my term, this kept me focused on what I was really passionate about. Organisation and time management was key, a busy year but one I will never forget.

new things What has been your main highlight about being in this role? During this year we celebrated 90 years of St John Youth in New Zealand, this was a real highlight. It was the perfect opportunity to reflect on the past, St John Youth in New Zealand has a very proud and rich history. But it was also an opportunity to think about the future, and what is next for the youth programme. In April this year, we released the new youth strategy which outlines how we will remain a relevant and engaging platform for positive youth development. What I love most about this document is that it was shaped entirely by young people. As a result, some new and exciting initiatives such as a scholarship and internship programme have been introduced. What are some of the other opportunities you have been offered throughout the year? There is a huge scope to the role, from spending time with some of the youngest members of our organisation during a weekend camp to participating in the likes of a priory chapter meeting. Priory chapter is the highest performance level of St John in New Zealand, it is very

special to have this platform to advocate for the voices of young people. In October, to match 90 years of youth, 90 cadets were presented their grand priory award at Government House. I was master of ceremonies for this memorable event. I also led the St John Youth advisory, made up of all 22 district cadets of the year. This is another fantastic opportunity for us to provide youth voice and work on exciting projects. What are some key attributes a national cadet needs? The role is defined as being an ambassador for the programme, a voice for younger cadets and acting as a positive role model.

LiQUiD LaUnDroMatS

You need to be passionate and motivated by the potential of the youth programme and our youth members. It is important to embrace the opportunities that come with the role and realise that over the year you have a platform to make a difference and create change. Being receptive to feedback, working as part of a team, taking initiative, enthusiasm and communicating effectively I think are all good attributes. But most importantly you need to respect our volunteer leaders, I have huge appreciation for the way they challenge my mindset and the cadets’ commitment to making a difference.

Selwyn swims 10,000km Swim to Summer was a huge success, as over 200 people registered and logged their laps each time they came in for a swim. A total of 10,000km was swum over the 15-week challenge set by the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. The aim of the challenge was to get more Selwyn residents swimming, more often. Aquatic Facilities Manager Kathy Moore says there was great feedback received on the event, with many people achieving the goals they had set. “It was great to see the friendships and competitiveness that developed throughout the swimathon, connecting those within our community,” Ms Moore says. Another key objective of Swim to Summer was to raise awareness and donations for two deserving charities, the Breast Cancer Foundation and Prostate Cancer Foundation. Through generous participant donations, a sausage sizzle, bake sale, Glentunnel school mufti day and a raffle, over $1,500 was raised with further donations still coming in. We would like to extend a huge thank you to the generous sponsors for their support: Rolleston New World, Zoggs, Streets and Aqualine.

If you have long grass on your property, now is a good time to either graze it or mow it – on a cooler day – to reduce the risk of fire on your property. If long grass on another property is causing concern, we encourage residents first to speak with their neighbours and ask that they cut their lawn or verge. To report fire hazards such as long grass contact the Council: www.selwyn.govt.nz/helpline or phone 347 2800. You can also report issues using Snap, Send, Solve. In an emergency please call 111 and report it.

Residents on Council water supplies are encouraged to continue using their Water Sense. So that we can continue to supply households with water over summer, and to help conserve water, we are recommending that residents on Council water supplies try to water lawns between 9pm–6am (most recommended) or, on cooler overcast days, between 9am–4pm.

Please avoid irrigating between 6–9am or 4–9pm as these are times when households use the most water and pressure can drop with high demand. Pressure drops have been observed over the last few days.

You can also recycle your scrap metal at the Pines Resource Recovery Park.

Global plight recognised by student „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding DARFIELD HIGH School’s Bena Pearson has taken a big step to help her fellow students who struggle to afford sanitary protection during menstruation. Bena, 14, has described the increasing global problem of affordability for sanitary hygiene products as “heartbreaking.” In a bid to help the girls at her school, Bena distributed $500 of sanitary products last week. About 1672 items were presented, with products not taken to be used in the community or another high school in need. Her initiative was allocated $500 by New Zealand Red Cross youth project’s Bounce programme. Participants were asked to write down ideas of how they would like to help other people, with Bena’s goal to support women struggling to afford sanitary items selected for the grant. It is recognised by the United Nations as a global public health and humanrights issue. It became important to Bena after she read an article about

to learn only two students in the survey used reusable menstrual cups – which are aimed to reduce costs long-term and are eco-friendly. While Bena initially found it “awkward” to discuss her project, she was inspired after reading an article in teen magazine Girlfriend aiming to break down the taboo of talking about periods. “I was like that is so true. So I stood up in assembly and was like it is not a big deal, all girls get them,” she said. Bena said the teachers were pleased with her project and it was well-received by her peers. She said all sanitary products should be free.

Schools out for Adams Selwyn MP Amy Adams writes about schools finishing up for the end of the year

SCHOOLS ARE wrapping up for the year in the next few days and most are celebrating the achievements of students at prize-giving ceremonies and end-of-year assemblies. I am sure senior students from our local high schools will be relieved that NCEA exams are now over and they can turn their focus to summer holiday jobs or just enjoying a break from study. My daughter is finishing high school this year so this represents the end of an era for me. It seems quite strange to realise that after so many years being involved in the school system as a parent I won’t be any longer. However, I do often get invited to our local schools in my role as MP for Selwyn, so I will still be able to look forward to that ongoing involvement next year.  Year 13 students intending to enrol in tertiary study next year will be relieved to have some clarity at last around exactly who will qualify for the new policy of making the first year of tertiary study free. As this will be my last column

from John’s on to Main South Rd a little further down. So it makes a T junction instead. A lot safer.

A bus driver was forced to take evasive action after a car failed to stop at an intersection at Dawsons and Jones Rds in Rolleston

Kirstyn Walker – Those two intersections of Curraghs and Dawsons roads have been notorious for years!

Deb Flanagan – How about lights if people are incapable of taking the time to check properly. I live locally and am sick of poor drivers edging way forward and not checking properly. Have had many a fright when others not stopping fully need to look more than once.

Selwyn MP

Rena Johnsen – All the Jones Rd intersections are notorious. Have had some shockers and know of two horse floats hit at Weedons Ross Rd intersection with Jones Rd. I nearly hit a camper van that turned across the front of me while towing. New motorway should help as more roundabouts and less crossing points.

Jocelyn Pirini – It would be alright if they stopped at the lights. I had some old longhaired git drive straight through a red light in front of me today. Bloody lucky I didn’t u-turn and chase him down.

GRADUATION: Amy Adams’ daughter Lucy is finishing high school at St Margaret’s College bringing an end to the Selwyn MP’s involvement in the school system as a parent.

Diane Dick – I travel Leeston to Christchurch most days and throughout the city and everyday without fail I see vehicles that fail to stop at stop signs. They treat them like a give way, slow down and go straight around the corner or straight over them. Their habits are the problem. There is a stop sign for a reason.

for the Selwyn Times before Christmas, I would like to let you know that my electorate office in Templeton will be closed from

A 41-year-old woman was stopped south of Rolleston by police after allegedly swigging from a wine cask while driving Carolyn Hunter – Some people shouldn’t be allowed near a car. Diane Austin – Where are some people’s brains. Pamela Neil – Yep...that will do it. Phillip Rasmussen – Feel sorry for them NOT. Words fail me to describe people like this. Matt Reid – How do you swig a goon?

ON STAGE: Olivia Sheehan as the witch, Jessica Dalton as the baker’s wife and Jodie Simmons as Jack’s mum.

Ellesmere College’s fairytale mash-up A MUSICAL mash-up of popular fairytales has enchanted audiences in Leeston. Ellesmere College students put on a production of Into the Woods JR recently. The show featured classical fictional characters from Cinder-

ella and Little Red Riding Hood to Jack and the Beanstalk. It was based on United States composer Stephen Sondheim and playwright James Lapine’s Tony award-winning musical Into the Woods. Teachers, parents and the

drama, music, art and technology departments helped get the show off the ground. Administration support teacher Lindsay Cook said from the reports he has heard, it was one of the best shows the school has done.

MAGICAL: Jessica Dalton and Emma Johnson as the baker.

Ladbrooks boys use mayor’s $10 to build their ideas up

ENTREPRENEURS: Jack Cameron and Jordan Bately have organised their own successful freestyle building workshop.

There’s much more to come Discover a true, carefree lifestyle at Lady Wigram Retirement Village

TWO LADBROOKS School pupils have made the most of a new initiative aimed at supporting 10-year-old entrepreneurs. Jack Cameron and Jordan Bately were recipients of Mayor Sam Broughton’s 10TEN10 fund which gives 10-year-olds $10 to support their new entrepreneurial ideas. Pupils were required to write in their ideas down and send them to Mr Broughton with the winners chosen last month. As

a result of receiving $10 each, Jordan and Jack decided to create an event for other Selwyn children based on their passion for building and construction. The pupils held two freestyle building workshops in Lincoln recently which were attended by 21 children. After receiving the funding to start their idea, the pupils contacted businesses throughout Canterbury to support their project with off-cuts of wood. They also secured corporate

funding from Mitre10 Mega Hornby, Placemakers Hornby and The Warehouse. Due to this, the boys were able to save the $10 notes from the district council and, along with the takings during the one-and-half-hour sessions, made more than $100. Mr Broughton will also give a $100 donation to the boys’ chosen charity – Lincoln Envirotown Trust. Planning for the event included organising advertising, purchasing of materials and risk management planning.

Lady Wigram Retirement Village Independent Living at its best. “Our residents are our best advertising mediums, and with the new Club House opening soon its just getting better” says Sarah, Village Manager. Call us now to view the Villas and Apartments and we can show you the next stages.

Upper South Island travel guide PLAN YOUR JOURNEY – PICTON TO CHRISTCHURCH

PICTON

State Highway 1 (SH1) north of Kaikōura will open to daytime traffic on Friday 15 December, restoring the coastal highway link from Picton to Christchurch. The re-opening of SH1 will give people two viable options for travel around the upper South Island, with the alternate route (via state highways 63, 6, 65 and 7 through Lewis Pass) remaining a reliable 24/7 option.

Make sure you allow enough time for your journey, whichever route you chose. Unexpected events, such as a crash, high volumes of traffic, ongoing wet weather or seismic activity, can cause delays. Ongoing roadworks and reduced speed limits in places mean that it won’t be possible for you to make up time.

OPEN 24/7*

Be prepared with food, water and a fully charged cell phone. 7

Do not rely on your GPS or Google Maps things can change at short notice. WHAT TO EXPECT ON SH1 Parts of the road will still be under construction, so there will be some unsealed sections, lane closures with Stop/Go controls and speed restrictions.

1

There will be night closures north of Kaikōura between Clarence and Mangamaunu, and between Goose Bay and Peketa in the south. Closure points will be monitored 24/7. Consider road closure hours before starting your trip and leave enough time to be clear of these sections so you can continue your journey. The opening hours are subject to adverse weather and seismic activity. If there is a lot of rain or another significant event, we may have to close the road for short periods of time. It’s important to remember the safety of those using the highway, and working on it, will always be our top priority.

BE ROAD COURTEOUS • No stopping on SH1 within the closure areas outside of designated stop bays. •

Be patient and cautious. Road conditions will be unfamiliar to many drivers, so a little bit of patience will go a long way.

• Follow all traffic signs and any instruction given by road crew. • Obey speed limits to keep all road users safe. •

Stay focused around rail lines. Expect trains at any time.

• Keep fresh by taking breaks and supporting communities on the route.

CLARENCE

* Conditions can change any time, so it is important to check the current status at least two hours before you travel and at key route decision points. Visit www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c or freephone 0800 4 HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49)

Weedons give Leeston-Southbridge first loss STRONG individual displays with bat and ball helped Weedons hand LeestonSouthbridge their first defeat in the Canterbury Country premier one-day competition on Saturday. Batting first at Weedons, the home side were anchored by opening batsman James Richards, who scored his maiden century for the club. After fellow opener Josh Watson was dismissed for 12, Richards and No 3 Brad Nightingale put together a partnership of 66 to have the score at 104/1 in the 24th over. Richards was eventually dismissed by Angus Hooper in the 42nd over, but the damage had already been done. His 113 came off 135 deliveries and included one six and 10 fours. A quick-fire 44 from Matt Parker helped Weedons to a total of 251/5 from 45 overs. Toby Doyle then got LeestonSouthbridge away to a decent start in their run chase with a knock of 54. At 97/3 after 20 overs, the visitors looked in with a shot of defending their undefeated record. However, three wickets fell for no runs leaving LeestonSouthbridge scrambling at 97/6. The competition leaders were eventually dismissed for 109 in the 25th over. Youngster Lachie Stove was

Malvern side’s batters all contributed to help them rack up a respectable 190/9. In reply, the Sefton Seals floundered in the heat and under examination by the steady bowling attack. Lance Taylor again batted well to reach 44, but Sefton never challenged the total, falling all out for 146 in the 42nd over. Sefton’s day could best be summed up by the bizarre demise of captain Andrew Laffey. A moth flew into his ear while watching the batting effort which required the skipper to leave the venue to have it extracted, meaning he was unavailable to bat. Luckily for Laffey, he was able to show teammate’s the winged culprit to prove his considerable discomfort was well-founded. Lincoln racked up a dominant win over Cheviot at Lincoln Domain. Bowling first, Lincoln’s Hugh and Arthur Paterson soon had the Cheviot top-order in trouble, reducing them to 24/4 and then 45/7. The visitors never recovered and were all out for 83. Hugh Paterson was the best of the bowlers, taking a five-wicket bag. Joel Harden dominated the run chase, smashing an unbeaten 67 from just 53 balls as Lincoln easily knocked off the meagre target to win by nine

wickets. At Dudley Park in Rangiora, the combined Oxford-Rangiora home side batted first to make 197 all out. Luke Waghorn, 57, and Andrew Mitchell, 63, played nicely on a flat wicket and fast outfield. Southbrook’s chase began well with 53 from Canterbury Country veteran Andrew Robertson and a solid 44 from Tom Rodden. But it was a composed unbeaten 47 from Andrew Wise that steadied the chase when it looked like a “Southbrook shuffle” was on the cards, and saw them take a four-wicket win. Short scorecard: Weedons 251/5 (J Richard 113, M Parker 44) beat Leeston-Southbridge 109 ( T Doyle 54; L Stove 5/21). Darfield-South Malvern 190/9 (A Inch 35; H James 3/37, N Granger 2/34, A Laffey 2/33) beat Sefton 146 (L Taylor 44; A Surendran 3/10, T Kars 2/27, C Bettington 2/35). Cheviot 83 (H Paterson 5/21) lost to Lincoln 84/1 (J Harden 67no). Oxford-Rangiora 197 (A Mitchell 63, L Waghorn 57, M Brine 3/23) lost to Southbrook 200/6 (A Robertson 53, T Rodden 44, A Wise 47no; M Power 3/37).

Backyard Critters

Leave a light on for moths 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 MORE THAN 1800 moth species are known in New Zealand and 90 per cent of them are endemic (only found in New Zealand). Entomologists use powerful lights to monitor moths present in different habitats and can catch as many as 100 species in a diverse habitat on a good night. Your outside house light will also attract moths from your garden or beyond. One moth species I captured with my camera around a light was the black-lyre leafroller (cnephasia jactatana). The 10mm long endemic moth species is easy to identify by the distinctive symmetrical ‘S’

eucalyptus, persimmon and ebonies. The moths are most commonly observed in December and January when females release a chemical attractant called a sex pheromone which pulls in the males to start the courtship process.

Rolleston Prison gifts tomato plants to social housing tenants MORE than 5000 tomato plants have been handed over to the Ōtautahi Community Housing Trust to be donated to city housing tenants. The plants are an annual project at Rolleston Prison and are grown from seed to plant ready for home gardens. The plants take eight to ten weeks from planting and germination until they are ready to be collected. “This project gives prisoners an opportunity to give something back and provides people in the community with the means to grow healthy food for themselves and their family,” said Rolleston Prison director Mike Howson. “Many of the prisoners know what it is like to struggle

financially and they enjoy the opportunity to do something for the community, especially near to Christmas. Seeing the plants leave the prison for a person’s garden means a great deal to the men involved,” he said. More than 40,000 tomato plants have been cultivated and donated since the Tomatoes for Tenants Project began in 2008 and the annual delivery of the tomatoes is highly anticipated by the city housing tenants. Rick Fraser of Ōtautahi said the trust values the partnership with Rolleston Prison and many tenants appreciate the plants and save a space in their gardens for them. Leftover plants are gifted to schools and community groups.

JONES ROAD ROLLESTON

Local Jones Road business Christmas Tidings A growing enclave of businesses can be found over the tracks in Jones Road providing a handy range of services for the people of Selwyn. From looking after your motor vehicle to the pets in the house, it is a short drive to the Izone side of Rolleston where you will find the expertise of Diesel Fix, Jones Road Auto, Laser Electrical, Real Petfood and Rolleston Diesel & Petrols available to help you out. With Christmas and summer holidays upon us, many of these reliable businesses will enjoy a break from the busy year with a number closing for at least the statutory holiday period. Rolleston Diesel & Petrols close at lunchtime on Friday (22 December), re-opening on Monday, 8 January. “We’d like to wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas. Thank you for all your support in 2017. I look forward to seeing you in 2018 when we’ve got some exciting things happening,” says Simon from Rolleston Diesel & Petrols. “If you’ve not had a chance to get your car in for a service, check the obvious like oil, water and tyre pressures, that your lights and indicators are working, and your WOF and COF are up to date, to avoid being stopped by the police,” reminds Simon.

Next door, Diesel Fix will be closed from midday Friday (22 December) through to Monday, 8 January in 2018. Kylie and Phil say: “Have a Merry Christmas and safe New Year.” Along the road at Jones Road Auto, the team will be open normal hours this Friday, 22 December before heading away for a well-earned break with the business reopening for the 2018 year on Monday, 8 January. Lisa, Nigel and their team would like to thank their customers for their continued support over the last 12 months and wish everyone a safe and happy festive season. “Don’t forget a Christmas present for your pets,” reminds Bernie from Real Petfood. There is still time to pick up a real fresh, pet meat treat for your pet to enjoy on Christmas day. Real Petfood have a wide range of high quality fresh and frozen raw pet meat available. They have cut portions through to mixes especially prepared for puppies, dogs or cats. This includes beef, horse, chicken and rabbit meat and mince, tripe, chicken necks, and their extremely popular cat, dog, puppy and musterers’ mixes. Hurry down to Real Petfood at 855 Jones Road (just across from Jones Road Auto) before they close at 1pm on Friday (22 December) to stock up on your supplies of pet food. They will open again on Thursday, 4 January 2018. The staff at Real Petfood would also like to wish their customers a Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year. Laser Electrical will be available for call outs over the Christmas/New Year period. The Laser Electrical team thank their customers for their loyal patronage this year and wish everyone a Merry Christmas along with a safe and happy New Year.

European Escape takes over from Kuga „„ By Ross Kiddie ESCAPE HAS been a popular brand for Ford New Zealand. That being the case, I was surprised when the name of the sport utility vehicle was dropped in favour of Kuga. The latter also sold well, but now Ford has reverted back to Escape, the latest name change also coinciding with a new release. Those who do relate to the old Escape will be aware of its pedigree, it was a model shared similarly with Mazda (Tribute) in New Zealand and had its origins in Taiwan. The new Escape is totally different. It is now sourced from Europe, Spain to be exact, and unlike its V6 predecessor it has only four cylinders, but there are many varying engine types – diesel and petrol and in 1.5-litre or 2-litre capacity. The range is extensive with seven models starting from $37,990, some offered in four-wheel-drive. The test car was Titaniumbadged and sits in the line-up at $53,490, there is only one model with a higher ticket and that is the diesel powered version with the same specification ($54,990). The 2-litre petrol, all-wheeldrive variant is certainly a worthy choice, the Escape in this form is a cross between the traditional SUV and a sports car, that comment simply because of its engine output, it is rated at 178kW and 345Nm. That’s mostly due to the turbocharging system fitted to the twin-camshaft, 16-valve unit, it offers significant boost at a low operating area. Peak power arrives at just 5500rpm while maximum torque is available all of the way from 2000rpm to 4500rpm. The significance of those figures is the punchy way the engine works. It is feisty and lively, yet it delivers with little audible sound. If you also factor in the way power is transferred through a silky smooth six-speed automatic

• Price – Ford Escape Titanium, $53,490 • Dimensions – Length, 4524mm; width, 1838mm; height, 1736mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, four-wheeldrive, 1999cc, 178kW, 345Nm, six-speed automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 8sec • Fuel usage – 8.6l/100km

FORD ESCAPE: Capable sport utility vehicle powered by a turbocharged engine.

gearbox, the driveline is structured for quick momentum with a responsive nature. The Escape in this form will accelerate from a standstill in 8sec and will complete an overtaking time of 4.9sec to make 120km/h from 80km/h. My comments about sports car performance aren’t an exaggeration.

Ford is quite proud of its Ecoboost range of engines, they have been developed not so much for the performance I’ve just commented on, but they also stand out for their economy. As it turned out I drove the new Escape at city speeds for a fair chunk of my evaluation and that wasn’t kind to the economy, the

fuel usage readout listing around 10.6-litres per 100km (27mpg) when I took the car back to the dealership. That’s quite distant to Ford’s combined average cycle claim of 8.6l/100km (33mpg), but that’s put into perspective when you take into account the 6.2l/100km (46mpg) sitting instantaneously at a steady 100km/h, the engine turning over at just 1750rpm. The evaluation car was riding on sport specification Continental tyres (235/45 x 19in). With their wide footprint and formidable reputation there is a lot of steering feel and strong selfcentering feel within the steering mechanism. Turn-in is direct and accuracy within the handling

process is positive. I particularly like the way the Escape handles, and that doesn’t surprise me. I’m a big European Ford fan, and the way the designers engineer balance and handling ability into the chassis of all their varying model styles is a credit. The Escape is also fitted with state-of-the-art gear for comfort, convenience and safety. Some of the major items include full leather trim with heated front seats, satellite navigation, full length electric sunroof, voice recognition communication and infotainment, and radar cruise control. Of course, it is also fivestar safety rated. I was a little ambivalent when I picked up the Escape, I knew that its engine wouldn’t live up to the thrill of the old Volvo-derived, 2.5-litre, turbo five-cylinder unit found in some variants of the old Kuga, still one of my favourite engines. That being the case, the Escape’s 2-litre engine had to really work hard to win me over and I should have known it wouldn’t disappoint. Its honesty, power outputs and generally quiet operating manner make it a real honey. Just as well, then, that the rest of the vehicle has the quality to support it; the entire package is quite outstanding. It will certainly lure Escape buyers of old, and those who are contemplating trading up from Kuga.

As the temperatures soar, we are now in a continuous battle with keeping our plants watered enough to keep them alive. Water is a precious necessity, so we need to be smart with how we are using it.

Intelligro top tips • Add organic compost to your soil, then apply a layer of bark on top • Use Wetting Agent or Water Holding Crystals in your pots, containers and raised beds. These clever products help to control water distribution, releasing water as the soil dries out. Our team can help you with which products are best for you • Provide shade where you can. You might be able to move come pots or containers to a more shaded area. They will need some sunlight, but all-day sun is going to be damaging for your plants, especially in 30 degree weather! • Raise the height of your mower to keep the lawns a bit longer. • Pull out the weeds as you see them. They compete with your plants for space, water and nutrients. • Check your veggie beds regularly. Make sure you get to the produce before the birds and pests, and before they go to waste. A zucchini can turn into a marrow in a matter of days!

Garden Safety

Gardening is a popular pastime in New Zealand, and especially so in the Garden City. There are a number of things that can adversely affect your health when gardening, (sun, bees, tetanus, strains from lifting to name a few) and Legionnaires is definitely one of those. With peak gardening season upon us, there are more people out and about in the garden planting veggies and flowers, and tidying up outside ready for Christmas. At times we can get so busy that we rush through in a hurry trying to get everything done and forget to put on our gloves and masks. It is important that you take the time to protect yourself when you are gardening. Whether you are young or old, a new gardener or an expert, we strongly recommend that you follow all of the safety warnings and advice when great f o y nt le p e ar e er handling any bagged or bulk potting Th how mix, veggie mix, compost as well as ideas out there on d an , er any other form of growing mix. at w e rv to conse • Read the warning labels on bags of compost eping efficient ways of ke ave and potting mixes .H your garden watered out • Wear gloves when handling soils, mulches, is at h w e se d composts and potting mixes an k a loo t fi to it t ap • Wear a dust mask if you are using these there and ad mixes indoors, or if it is windy your own garden. • Dampen mixes before using them • Always open bags away from your face Make sure that you slip, slop, slap and wrap as well! Even a short amount of time in the sun can be harmful, so cover up as much as you can. We are gathering more information that we will compile over the coming days to help explain the best practice when gardening, as well as more about what Legionella is and why it likes potting mix and compost so much! If you have any questions, please give us a call on 03 3479415 or email gemma@igro.co.nz, we are more than happy to answer any of your questions and concerns as best as we can!

Turn the heat up with chilli „„ By Henri Ham SOME LIKE it hot, and I’m one of them. I love chilli. The hotter the better as far as I’m concerned. And, I know I’m not alone. There’s a lot of excitement from other die-hard, and not-so-diehard, chilli fans. I like bhut jolokia (also known as ghost pepper) which until 2007 was the world’s hottest chilli. And in the last couple of years and there are other varieties such as chilli red hot pepper, jalapeno, jalapeno red flame and habanero Rred (measured at more than 200,000 Scoville Heat Units for those who are interested). But what’s really got people talking is carolina reaper. This chilli, named for the shape of its tail, is the current holder of the ‘world’s hottest chilli’ title and measuring an incredible 1,569,300 SHU. Though there is a pretender to the throne called dragon’s breath waiting in the wings. Carolina Reaper is in fact a hybrid of bhut jolokia and habanero red and, as I write this, I’m nibbling one I’ve grown. Great flavour. What I also like about growing chilli, other than the taste of course, is that you don’t need a lot of space for them and once planted they don’t require much care. They grow well in confined spaces (including in pots) and thrive with little watering. Once you’ve got your seedlings or plants, look for a well-drained, sheltered and sunny spot in your garden – the same type of place you’d grow tomatoes. In fact, tomatoes are a great companion plant for chilli and they taste great together in home-made relish! Other plants you could grow your capsicums with are basil and parsley – they also like the same conditions. And, it’s also good to grow chilli near bee-friendly plants to encourage pollination. Later on, if you’re in doubt as to whether the flowers have been pollinated (which needs to happen for them to produce fruit), simply gently brush each flower

with the end of a paint brush. This will spread the pollen and pollinate them. When you’ve found the right spot to plant increase the quality of your soil by mixing in some compost and a good general fertiliser. If you’re growing your chilli in pots, simply use a good potting mix. Then plant each seedling around 40-60cm apart from the next. Give them a light watering when you plant and then just every once and a while give them another drink. You can expect to see chillies in around eight to 12 weeks. If

you like things really hot, reduce your watering once the fruit have set – this is when the flowers start turning into fruit. Some chilli (like our red hot pepper) will start off green and turn red as it ages. Try to harvest the fruit by cutting, rather than pulling and do it just before they look ready – this will encourage your plant to produce more fruit. Lastly, if you’ve grown your chilli plants in pots, be sure to move them somewhere like the under the eaves of the house or indoors before the first frost. This way you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of your labour again next year

Lovely lavatera likes it warm „„ By Henri Ham LAVATERA IS a lovely plant that is great for expert and beginner gardeners alike. It is sometimes (or often in other parts of the world) known as mallow and has many great traits. It’s easy to plant, grows quickly and produces many flowers. Its pretty flowers are loved by bees and beneficial insects alike. And it’s happiest in dry conditions – perfect for this time of year. Once you’ve got your plants, look for a spot in full sun or part shade with well-drained or sandy

soil. Lavatera is great for growing in borders or garden beds – perfecting for filling space – and pots and containers. Next, dig a little hole and plant each one around 40-50cm apart from the next. Give it a bit of watering when you first plant it but don’t worry if you can’t water it regularly – it thrives in dry conditions making it perfect if you head away over summer. You can get expect to see the start of your lavatera summer show in around three weeks. If you grow seedlings you’ll need to wait a little longer – around eight weeks.

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

Modern with a twist of tradition Classic and contemporary features blend together in Stonewood Homes’ uniquely stylish new Rosedale Faringdon showhome. Typical of the Hamptons style are the traditional architraves around the windows and doors, white joinery and coving softening the lines, throughout the house. Full height windows in the living areas and a soft toned colour palette in grey and white tones combine for a pleasant setting that is easy on the eye. Neutrality in décor also allows the homemaker the opportunity to add their own personal touch or introduce fashion coloured accessories. At 243sqm, this house has a really spacious feel. From the time you walk in the front door there is a sense of open space, something that is carried through the wide hallway and accentuated by the

full length windows and doors that make for a light and bright home. The family area is sun soaked as is the separate formal lounge where pitched ceilings further add to the spacious feel of this home. A modern touch is the black tapware in the kitchen, scullery (a mini kitchen in itself) and laundry, augmenting the classic styled kitchen where panelled cabinetry and white subway tiling with black grouting, make for a good balance of traditional and contemporary features. “The kitchen is a striking feature of this home making an impact with everyone who comes through”, says Olivia Gallop, Pre-Construction Manager at Stonewood Homes. Three of the four bedrooms are doubles while the master accommodates a walk-in robe and large ensuite with tiled double shower and double vanity. All windows in the master bedroom are full height so it is a really light space. A triple stacker slider services a patio that is only accessible off the master suite, providing a private intimate area. The main bathroom has a freestanding bath, wall mounted vanity and shower, enhanced with a tiled feature wall and floor. A difference in one of the bedrooms is its staging as a nursery, giving mums to be some great ideas. A walk-in linen cupboard with shelves

wrapped around three walls is accessed off the hallway and the separate laundry has an exterior door to the service path, taking away the need to traipse through the house to access the clothesline. This room has the same quality joinery as in the kitchen – traditional panelled cabinetry – running the full length of the room with a large hamper for laundry and space for both washing machine and dryer. The garage is a true double. It is carpeted and has a 4.8 metre wide door opening. Stonewood Homes have maximised

Guy and Kate’s family love playing tennis. So we designed their home around the court to maximise their game time.

the 618sqm site with good outdoor living family friendly spaces, where there is room for children to play or a trampoline, yet easy care for those not wanting too much yard work. Stonewood Homes’ Rosedale showhome can be found at 95 Ledbury Drive and with a second showhome next door at 93 Ledbury Drive in Rolleston’s Faringdon, viewers have the opportunity to compare building options. Both showhomes are open 7 days a week from 12noon to 4pm.

Is your property safe from fire? Here’s a guide to help understand the risk in your area

During the fire season, there are some risks you need to know about to help keep you, your family and your property safe. Throughout New Zealand, there are different levels of risk, depending on where you live and what the area around you is like. As we build more and more homes in previously rural areas, the level of risk is different to properties built in a more urban setting. Make sure you check your property and are aware of your surroundings so you can be best prepared this fire season.

Steps you need to take to keep your property safe

1

2

3

Make sure you have a ‘safe zone’ around your property

Have an escape plan and an agreed safe meeting place

- Clear vegetation close to your home. This could fuel a fire if one started. - Choose plants with low flammability – native plants are often better. - Keep your lawns mowed and green. - Don’t store firewood close to the house. - Clear your gutters of dry leaves. - Be careful when using any mechanical equipment in dry conditions.

- Go to www.escapeplanner.co.nz to make a plan to get out of your home safely and agree a safe meeting place. Practise this regularly. - Think about where you will meet if you need to evacuate the area. - Have an emergency evacuation kit in case you need to leave quickly.

Good access for firefighters - Fire trucks need a lot of space to manoeuvre. Make sure there are no overgrown trees or other obstacles that may prevent access to your property. - We can pump from water supplies such as a pond, pool or tank. - Make sure your address or RAPID number is clearly visible.

- If in doubt, leave early.

The fire risk applies to everyone, no matter where you live. For more information check, www.fireandemergency.nz
