UCOL leads protest By ALECIA ROUSSEAU Legal high outlets should not be allowed to operate near educational institutions, according to staff and students at Palmerston North’s UCOL. Dozens of people took to the green on King Street yesterday voicing their concerns against the establishment of legal high outlets in close proximity to learning institutions full of ‘‘young people’’. UCOL communications spokeswoman Christine Beech said the aim was to provide a platform for the community where they could take a stand against legal highs. ‘‘It’s not just us who are concerned — we have lots of support from other organisations including Massey, YOSS, Te Wananga and the DHB. A lot of people are keen to see something done.’’

Lecturer Lorna Johnson said the City Council had the power to regulate where these products could be sold but were not doing it fast enough. ‘‘We know that some people are for regulation and some are for prohibition — whatever it is, something needs to be done by our council, now.’’ Ms Johnson said many students had expressed to staff members concerns about legal highs. ‘‘They have been coming to us for some time and we realised something needed to be done. This has come right from the bottom all the way to the top . . . unless a bylaw can be established now, who knows how many other outlets will pop up.’’ Lecturer Sheran Merritt said she knew of one shop which was purposely targeting younger customers.

Promotion Starts: 1st November Grand Finale Draw: Saturday 21st Dec (1pm, town centre)

‘‘I have seen a guy standing outside all the time so the doors remain open, speaking to passersby — if you walk past you can see everything. It’s not good enough; I’ve seen good students have their lives go down the toilet because of this stuff.’’ Under the Psychoactive Substances Bill, legal highs cannot be sold in dairies or to anyone under the age of 18, no advertising is allowed except at the point of sale, and all products must have health warnings. ‘‘This legislation is not enough; we need a bylaw that can regulate where these shops are set up,’’ argued Ms Johnson. ‘‘We don’t want them near our students — we have a lot of young people, some 16, who are very vulnerable. We know that education and legal highs just don’t mix.’’

By ROB MILDON Mums and dads know that babies grow up quickly — which is great, but with that comes the constant need for new clothes. The turn of the seasons can mean a whole new wardrobe, and the expense can build up quickly. Since March, the volunteers at Plunket have been coming to the rescue with their Clothes Swap Shop. Set up by community support co-ordinator Amy Viles, the shop takes donations, sorts and washes them, and then presents them ready to be exchanged for fresh donations. ‘‘We can find a home for everything,’’ says Mrs Viles. ‘‘If we can’t, we donate it on.’’ The shop is a great way to change a winter outfit for a summer one, or a smaller size for a larger — and sometimes the other way around if a new baby is on the way. It’s a very casual process, and everyone has always been very generous, Mrs Viles says, often giving much more than they take away. There’s a constant influx of new clothes from a volunteer team of hobby knitters, who make the occasional soft toy as well. Anything in excess of requirements is passed on to Refugee Services. The idea’s been a huge success, with parents finding the ability to upcycle or recycle a real boon, both in terms of community connection — Plunket is a hub for young families — and in money saved. The Clothes Swap Shop is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. ■ Plunket welcomes new volunteers. To donate your time, call Amy Viles on (06) 357-4844.

VINZ death investigated By ALECIA ROUSSEAU The Palmerston North VINZ station on Taonui St has reopened this week after an accident fatally injured a staff member. Police were called to the site last Thursday around 2pm after a vehicle rolled off a hydraulic hoist, hitting three bystanders and two vehicles. ‘‘It has somehow managed to accelerate out the rear door, hitting a car and causing one inspector fatal injures,’’ explained senior sergeant Warwick Denby. ‘‘We were very lucky not to have a second fatality — an elderly lady was sitting in another car [that was] being inspected. She lifted her legs when she heard the car coming. Both her and the other man who was hit have broken limbs.’’ He said police, VINZ and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment would now investigate how the car managed to roll off the hoist, killing the 61-year-old man. ‘‘We now have to determine how this freak accident occurred. This is a terrible, terrible situation.’’ VINZ released a statement last week describing the incident as an ‘‘unfortunate accident’’. Chief executive officer Frank Willett said management and staff had been deeply

Coroner: Guy inquest will not resume By ALECIA ROUSSEAU An inquest into the murder of Feilding farmer Scott Guy will not resume, because the circumstances surrounding his death were adequately established during the police investigation and high-profile trial, according to a coroner. The report was released last week by coroner Carla na Nagara. She stated she had shared this determination earlier in the year with Mr Guy’s parents and widow, Kylee Guy. His parents ‘‘took no issue’’ with the provisional decision but the report says Mrs Guy felt differently. Through solicitor Chris Morris, Mrs Guy asked for the inquiry to be re-opened stating ‘‘the identity of the killer is a question of fact directly relevant to the circumstances of the death that has not been determined in the criminal proceeding’’. Ewen Macdonald was arrested and charged for the murder in



MURDER MYSTERY: A coroner has determined the inquest into the death of Scott Guy does not need to resume. PICTURE: SUPPLIED. April 2011 but was found not guilty by a jury in July 2012. Macdonald did not give evi-

dence in person during the trial and Mr Morris argued further that summoning him to do so at a coronial inquest would be a valid line of inquiry. ‘‘The question of who factually killed Mr Guy is quite a different question from that of whether Mr Macdonald bears any legal responsibility for his death,’’ he said. But Ms Nagara said continuing the inquiry would ‘‘only be to pursue a finding that Mr Macdonald — acquitted of Mr Guy’s murder — was the killer’’. ‘‘It is the identity of the deceased that needs to be established. It is not a requirement that a coroner should necessarily establish the identity of other person(s) involved in the death,’’ she said. In her view, she stated the coronial inquiry would undermine the integrity of the criminal law process and put the coroners’ court at risk of being a ‘‘backstop jurisdiction’’ to determine unresolved criminal matters.

sales advice from RACHEL OEMCKE

It’s always a good time for chocolate, but for a group of athletes with their sights on the Special Olympics now is better than ever. Picking up where they left off in 2010, Rachel Oemcke and Nathan Abraham have resumed their chocolate-selling business that is a major part of their fundraising efforts. In the short time they’ve been going, the pair have seen their empire stretch across Manawatu to Horowhenua and Tararua. Their product is clearly a big hit: days devoted to confectionbased commerce have seen as many as 100 sales. Nathan holds the record, marching 80 boxes out the door in an hour — an average of one sale every 45 seconds. Rachel and Nathan have mostly been concentrating their efforts amongst local business. What’s the secret to convincing staff to pick up


a box (beyond the obvious deliciousness, that is)? ‘‘You’ve got to have a big smile,’’ says Rachel, adding that the addition of a portable Eftpos machine had been ‘‘pretty much essential’’. Chocolate and convenience go together very well. The candy is almost entirely handmade, in New Plymouth. Nathan has travelled up to take a tour of the factory. ‘‘It was amazing,’’ he reports, ‘‘but a lot of hard work though.’’ A basketballer, he’s training for the National Champs in Dunedin. Rachel’s specialty is in the pool, where she swims freestyle, backstroke and butterfly. Her destination’s a bit further off; she’s hopping the ditch with the New Zealand team and going to the AsiaPacific Games in Newcastle, Australia. Boccia player KeriAnne Johnson, also a member of the original 2010 team, will rejoin the business after the nationals.

GIDDY UP: Giada Bailey, 3, enjoys a ride on this black stallion.


Awapuni’s community spirit By ALECIA ROUSSEAU Celebrating Awapuni’s strengths and sharing them with the rest of the city was the aim of last weekend’s Awesome Awapuni Day. Hundreds of families converged on Alexander Park to take advantage of the many free attractions, including face-painting, bouncy castles and tandem bike riding. Supported by PNCC, police and other local organisations, the day focused on bringing residents together. Live music played throughout the day and Awapuni’s very own ‘‘Idol’’ also took center stage. Children enjoyed Tai Kwon Do demonstrations, sports competitions and a ride in the local fire truck. ‘‘The Awesome Awapuni Day couldn’t take place without the support of the wider community for which we are grateful,’’ said

Jane Julian, chairperson for the event. ‘‘Without the involvement of organisations like City Council, Police, emergency services, Kia Ora FM, Awapuni Rotary, Lions, Hotel Coachman and Pioneer New World the day wouldn’t be possible.’’ Senior sergeant Brett Calkin said day had proved a great success. ‘‘It was a really, really good day out — we had almost the same numbers as last year and the weather was beautiful.’’ Police who attended the event spent most of their time behind the barbecue, he added. ‘‘We had no trouble and for those police that were there, they really enjoyed themselves — we think everybody had a good time.’’ Mr Calkin said the initiative meant residents in Awapuni were given an opportunity to celebrate their community as a whole.

Old skills for modern times

By ROB MILDON Leatherworking is one of those old arts you know used to be common, but has barely survived into the modern age. It falls to saddlers, hobbyists and people like Palmerston North artisan Tim Swainson to keep it going. There’s no process of formal training, Mr Swainson says, ‘‘but you’ll meet people who’ll teach you the skills’’. He picked up his first roll of leather more than 30 years ago. Having left university, ‘‘I looked for something to do with my hands’’. His brother-in-law made sandals, belts and bags, so Mr Swainson had a go, picking up skills from conferences and visiting artists. The techniques for working with leather are simple but extremely versatile, he says. The same method for making a mask can be put to work creating a bowl, for instance. ‘‘Once you learn the basics, your imagination takes it from there.’’ Ornitho Maia, winner of the 2008 World of Wearable Art supreme award, is a perfect example, he reckons. ‘‘That was brilliant. They used basic processes but extended them way, way out.’’ Mr Swainson uses wood — or in one case a clay cast of his own face — to mould

leather into what looks like a sculpture but is probably closer to origami. In this way, combined with dyes and paints, he makes boxes, masks and jewellery. Right now he’s looking into how leather armour is made. He found that his earlier artistic works were often mistaken for carvings. ‘‘People would say, ‘oh, that looks like wood’.’’ He turned to making more striking works; leering heads with frightful features that evoked strong reactions. ‘‘People would see them. I didn’t care if they liked them or not,’’ he says with a laugh. It might surprise you what constitutes ‘‘leather’’; it’s not just from cows. ‘‘Any skin is tannable,’’ Mr Swainson says. He’s used snake, toad, fish and stingray in his work, although because there are so few tanneries left in New Zealand, he imports most of his leather from Australia, Argentina or India. Leather’s versatility still has a lot of surprise value, he says. ‘‘You can do so much with leather. It can be soft as paper or hard as wood. That’s why I like working with it.’’ ■ Visit Tim Swainson and his leather creations at the Feilding Craft Market, tomorrow to Sunday at the Feilding Civic Centre. Doors open 9am.

Tour sees youngest rider ever By ALECIA ROUSSEAU Hundreds of riders from across the North Island came together last weekend to compete in the annual Fitzherbert Lions Tour De Manawatu. The course consisted of four routes, ranging from 20km to 116km. Of all the contestants to make their mark, four-year-old Monique Rosewood was the youngest. She rode for more than two hours from The Square to Henderson’s Line. This was the second time Monique had entered the race.

‘‘I was 36 weeks pregnant with Monique and decided to enter,’’ explains mum Raquel Rosewood. ‘‘From early on she has been into cycling and I knew she was a solid rider when I first saw her take to a bike.’’ The persistent young girl rode more than 100 hours in preparation for the race. ‘‘Her granddad takes her out all the time and she just loves it,’’ said Ms Rosewood. ‘‘She really is committed to this.’’ Monique described the ride as ‘‘really

fun’’ and was already looking forward to next year’s race. ‘‘We will finish it this time,’’ Ms Rosewood said. The official winner of the Tour was harder to determine. A technicality saw 15-year-old George Roberts named the winner despite arriving at the finish line after Robert Stannard. A host of prizes including a kayak, cash, and TVs were given to participants and all proceeds from this year’s ride will be donated to local charities. ■ For a full list of results, visit

Unravelling the mysteries of colic Colic has caused headaches for new parents since people first started having babies, and after thousands of years we’ve still not nailed down what causes it. Now a new Massey University study wants to see if one possible cause can be ticked off the list, and they need your help to do it. The aim of the project is to determine whether electrogastrography (EGG), a simple electrical measuring procedure, can detect differences in the stomach activity between babies with and without colic. To do this, the researchers need about 60 babies with feeding difficulties or restlessness after feeding, and 60 babies without these issues, of similar age, with which to compare them. If you are a parent with a baby 1-4 months old, you are invited to participate

in our project. It is preferred that babies have been breast fed. The EGG works rather like an electrocardiogram (ECG). Three to five stick-on electrodes, similar to a sticking plaster, are placed over the upper part of your baby’s tummy. They pick up electrical impulses and record them. Readings are taken after feeding, while babies are asleep. EGGs have been used to help diagnose rhythm disorders in adults; the study will see if they can be picked up in colicky babies while observing normal rhythms in other babies. Mild infant colic is common and can occur in both breast-fed and formula-fed infants. It can be caused by a great many things, including the simple swallowing of air during feeding. There are some

causes that are more difficult to test for, including simple abnormalities of the rhythm of mixing contractions. These may be due to a food allergy or simply from the baby’s stomach being slow to develop the normal rhythms found in infants. It is possible the EGG will detect these rhythm abnormalities. If so, it could become a quick and easy tool to identify the infant colic that is due to these disruptions. To find out more about what the research involves, or to join the study, contact Peta Larsen at the Institute of Food, Nutrition and Human Health on, or 021 970-233.

Style-savvy volunteers’ show boosts Red Cross By DALE WICKEN A very fashionable group of Red Cross volunteers took to the catwalk last Thursday night in a fashion show with a community objective. Hosted at the Red Cross Centre on Main Street, the show was a sellout, with over 70 tickets sold prior to the event. Women and men from all walks of life strutted their stuff in the show, with the ages of models ranging from 22 months to over 80 years. It was an exercise in team-building for the volunteer fashionistas, and a celebration of the new vigour that the shop has under new store manager Suzette Alderdice. ‘‘Sales have increased, and there’s a great excitement and momentum we’ve got going at the moment,’’ said Ms Alderdice. ‘‘I was shocked at the popularity of the show; we had to turn people away for tickets because we’d filled all the seats.’’ The night began in perfectly-tuned fashion, with barbershop group Manawatunes serenading the audience.

JOIN THE DISCUSSION: The most recent Green Drinks, in Square Edge, included a mayoral debate.

Saving the world one sip at a time

BY KARL PEARCE, Sustainable Manawatu What is ‘‘green’’ about people getting together to share drinks? Green Drinks started in 1989, at a pub called the Slug and Lettuce in North London. Edwin Datschefski was sitting with his green design colleagues Yorick Benjamin and Paul Scott when he noticed an enviro-minded acquaintance at a nearby table. That friend was sitting with a few of his own eco-conscious mates, so they pulled some tables together and a movement was born. Now many cities around the world have Green Drinks organisers who help green people get together for informal discussion and networking. The spirit of Green Drinks is that anyone can come, and this makes for interesting interactions. Locally, the Green Hub Trust and Sustainable Manawatu have been running these since 2011 in various locales. Through these years there have been a particular emphasis on green/enviro business featuring a variety of speakers, including Horizons Regional Council, beekeeping workshops, the Packaging Roadshow, Vision Manawatu, the Community Recycling Network and the Chamber of Commerce, with an average attendance of between 40 to 60 people. Now held at the Square Edge Community Arts Centre, the evenings attract a mixture of local environmental sector, local business people as well as city and regional

councillors. We have even had the odd MP attend. More recently, we held a mayoral debate between four of the the main contenders (the others were invited but unable to attend) which attracted over one hundred people. Green Drinks is a fantastic opportunity to network with like-minded people in the not-for-profit, business and political sectors, with a focus on both environmental and economic sustainability. It’s an opportunity not to be missed. So we are looking forward to organising our final Green Drinks in November and searching for host organisations for 2014. If you think your organisation and business is enviro-forward thinking, entrepreneurial and business-savvy, please get in touch with me and we will check out what it is you are eco-doing and promote these through the Green Drinks initiative. Our next Green Drinks date is November 14, with various throughout 2014. If interested please contact me on

If there are two things that make Palmerston North iconic, it’s the roar of our Saturday night speedway and the special place we occupy in the rest of the nation’s joke vocabulary. Stockcars: The Musical, written by Palmy natives, exalts both of these things with a knowing smile, acknowledging that yeah, sure, we’re no Melbourne or Copenhagen, but we still rule, and two fingers to anyone who reckons different. Stockcars is one of those classic tales of the ‘‘Kiwi battler’’, filled with instantly recognisable saltof-the-earth heroes, despicable fatwalleted villains, and a strong theme of doing right by your mates. It’s the fractious relationship between former friends and rivals Cam (a gruff Mark Clare) and Malcolm (Jeff Kingsford-Brown, clearly relishing his return to the stage after years away) that drives the plot. It looks like the speedway is going to close, and Cam will do anything to stop it. He focuses his anger on Malcolm, but


is his old enemy who he should be worried about? The characters are strong archetypes without slipping into cliche. You want Cam to win out even as he makes one boar-headed decision after another. His relationship with his daughter Maz (Lucy Lever) is the strongest in the show, and their scenes of alternating conflict and reconciliation are the most touching. Jon Pheloung’s slimy property developer sinks his teeth into the love-to-hate-him ‘‘bad guy’’ role. It’s only Nathan Mudge’s Aussie boy Roy who doesn’t feel quite as genuine as he needs to be in a couple of spots. The songs serve to link to character together, reflecting their different attitudes to a common thread. They’re pretty simple—don’t expect Music Of The Night—and the Balladeers get to have by far the most fun with them, gleefully mining the quirks of timing and scene changes for well-deserved laughs. It wouldn’t be a play about stockcars without some furious speedway action, and the way this is accomplished is cunning in its simplicity, a well-tuned form of ‘‘show don’t tell’’. The last of the three races contains an inspired use of a cinematic technique that’s usually farcical when attempted on stage but works brilliantly in this context, and neatly overcomes the standard predictability that plagues final act ‘‘against the odds’’ sporting face-offs. The blood of Palmerston North flows in the show’s veins. As love-letters to your hometown go, it’s a pretty good one.

Playing outside the square When you think jazz, Switzerland isn’t what pops first into your mind. Allow Swiss-based jazz quartet No Square to change your mind at the Evelyn Rawlins Room in Square Edge tomorrow at 8pm. With eight albums to their name, No Square have embarked on a goodwill tour promoting jazz, French language and cultural relations. They come to Palmerston North through the joint efforts of the Manawatu Jazz Club (MJC) and Alliance Francaise, on this 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between New Zealand and Switzerland. No Square is well known in Europe and has gained a large following abroad from its frequent tours. Palmerston North and Nelson are the only two smaller centres included in the group’s itinerary, so the MJC is delighted to have such a high profile group performing for jazz fans here — proving that such people do exist outside outside the big cities!


Formed in 1994, No Square have recorded eight albums and toured extensively across Europe and also a couple of trips around South America. This year, having just returned from Argentina, they have launched into a tour of China, New Zealand and Australia. Their lineup is sax, piano, bass and drums, playing ‘‘post-Bop’’. Such a dynamic outfit is guaranteed to play a captivating gig. Reviewing their concert in August, Miguel Bronfman of the Buenos Aires Herald wrote, ‘‘Within the classic format of jazz . . . No Square has developed its own style, based above all in the original compositions. In all, the band’s collective energy, the way they transmit their cohesion and their mutual commitment but also, their melodic, emotionally expressive improvisations, and creative percussive and rhythmic variations, are a real pleasure to listen to.’’ Check out their website with YouTube links at

I’ve been a freelance Professional Makeup Artist full time for 3 years now but I’ve had an interest in the industry since 1998. Becoming qualified has honestly been the best thing I have ever done and now I’m doing my Master International Makeup Professional qualification.

Thought-provoking, worthwhile and long MOVIE REVIEW Prisoners Downtown Cinemas Directed by Denis Villieneuve 153 minutes Reviewed by Dale Wicken The opening scene of Prisoners features an ‘‘always be prepared for the worst’’ speech that is such blatant foreshadowing that it’s borderline cringe-worthy. It’s not the most promising start, but it does get better. Hugh Jackman plays Keller Dover, a character seemingly epitomising the all-American male: a God-fearing, businessowning husband with two kids, a comfortable home and a talent for hunting. He’s prepared for everything, with a basement filled with supplies to see the family through a hurricane or zombie apocalypse. But he isn’t prepared for his daughter and her friend Joy to go missing. The police, led by Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal), soon have to release Alex (Paul Dano), the only suspect, but Dover is


STARE INTO THE ABYSS . . . Hugh Jackman contemplates taking the law into his own hands in Prisoners. convinced he knows something. From that point onwards, Loki and Dover butt heads about the course of the investigation,

each taking their own path towards solving the mystery. Gyllenhaal plays Loki in an understated but compelling way.

While he’s the stereotypical cop who threatens to lose the plot under pressure, he’s interesting, mysterious and intense.

Hugh Jackman is excellent. He’s monstrous, yes, but entirely believable, particularly in one scene where he rages at Loki in vein-popping, nostril-flaring fury. The two exemplify the notso-black-and-white hero-villain struggle. The film pushes logical as well as moral boundaries. There are plenty of twists and turns in the plot, and they’re not always straightforward. One sub-plot is frustratingly not explained or tied-up in the end, and doesn’t really add anything to the film, other than to confuse viewers. Ingredients like the ‘‘moral compass’’ character feel as though they were added to avoid too much deviation from the Hollywood formula. Prisoners crystallises the terror of a parent’s worst nightmare. It’s evocative and enthralling — though not enough that you don’t notice its considerable length. There are a couple of things that let it down, but the ambiguity presented about righteous violence, and how we’re supposed to feel about it, makes the film a worthwhile and though-provoking watch.

Childcare Answer for birthdays and after-school care manager Jody Jeffrey. Jack & Jill’s birthday parties, too, put the emphasis on "no stress, no mess and no fuss!" and range from simple play for the toddlers; to themed parties dipping into a huge range of costumes, involving princesses, pirates, superheroes and more; up to discos for the older kids. Each party is unique. "Our parties will be designed differently according to who’ll be there," says Jody. One was as simple as a photo shoot for a group of new mums and dads and their new babies. Jody maintains a dialogue with parents so that dietary, religious and other needs can be accommodated. All her staff are fully OSCAR-approved and are mature mums themselves — they know a thing or two about looking after kids. To take the headache out of birthday and after-school planning, contact Jack & Jill KidZone on (06) 355-4835; you can also find more information at or on their Facebook page.

REACHing out for two years REACH Roslyn has a vision of encouraging people in the suburb to participate in their community to make it a vibrant and safe place to live, and now celebrates its second birthday. The group was started after former mayor Heather Tanguay held a community meeting with residents, community and support groups and individuals and businesses in the Roslyn area. This networking culminated in the ‘‘Have a Say’’ Day in

February 2012 where people from the suburb came together to have a fun day at Norton Park and also have a say on what could improve the area. The community suggested several improvements, such as wanting the Scout Hall painted, raising the standard of parks in the area, and establishing a community garden. This garden was developed in Norton Park and will be handed over to the community on November 9. REACH Roslyn’s next project

is working with ‘‘at risk’’ youth in the area to use their skills to paint murals on the boundary fences at Norton Park. The group is also in the very early stages of working with PNCC to improve the park on Vogel Street. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month in the Roslyn Community Library on Kipling Street, where groups and Roslyn residents meet to discuss ideas for, and issues in, the suburb; REACH

encourages locals to come and have a say. The next meeting will be on Wednesday, November 20, at 5.30pm. Learn more about REACH Roslyn at the Roslyn Library, or from its Facebook page at ReachRoslyn. ■ Free technology training is being offered every second Friday at the Roslyn Library. November 15 is the next session.

Training slots are for up to 30 minutes per session, and, if needed, individuals can book in for further sessions. It covers anything from issues with cell phones, iPods and tablets to working with desktop PCs or laptops, including things like how to set up a Facebook account. You’re welcome to bring your own laptop along. To join in, visit Louise in the Library or call her on (06) 357-9287.

SERVICES DIRECTORY Blanchetts says thanks What an extraordinary year this has been. Blanchetts Fine Furniture of 58 Napier Road, Palmerston North, is so grateful for the business support of the people of the Manawatu region. Much of our business used to come from outside of our region with the sale of new furniture, of which we specialise in manufacturing traditional English and American style sofas and chairs. As well as manufacturing, Blanchetts supply curtain making and interior design consultancy services which have been well used. We see this as one of the many positive signals of the resurgence in our region’s economy. People are now more inclined to have

their weary sofas and chairs recovered. Our message is to consider refurbishment if the chair frame is solid. We can restore comfort levels; enhance the looks, and save sending more to our already burgeoning landfills. Blanchetts Fine Furniture use traditional methods of furniture making and restoration. Solid natural New Zealand timber frames are made by Tony Williams of Snake Gully Joinery and Bill Dear of Homewood Furniture. Furniture repairs are completed by Bill Dear and Brian Boyes of Woodcraft Restoration. Add to this blend Bruce, who is a first-class traditionally trained upholsterer, Vicki with huge sewing experience, Judy with Interior Design and Alan, our new apprentice, and you can guarantee

your project is in the safe hands of a very experienced team. Blanchetts’ factory, showroom and fabric displays are located at 58 Napier Road, Palmerston North. Look for our kerbside sign between Kruzin Customs and Kev’s Tyres almost opposite the Terrace End Cemetery main gates.

Ready your garden for festive season Now is the prime time to get your property spruced up for the Christmas season, and The Landscape Supply Yard has everything you need to get the job done: bark, sand, soils, compost, aggregates, drainage and decorative stones, and a truckload of other gardening and landscaping supplies. You can purchase by the bag or go the whole nine yards and buy in bulk. If you can’t pick it up with your own trailer, hire one of ours for $5, or we can deliver it to you, 7 days a week, in any quantity you require. You can even order hot and cold drinks from Coffee in a Box, based at the Yard, to arrive with your delivery. What a way to start your project! Arranging a delivery is easy. You can order online, by phone, or stop by the Yard in person. If you order a load of two cubic metres or more, delivery is free to Palmerston North or Linton. The Landscape Supply Yard can even deliver two bulk products in one delivery.

If it’s a design you need to get you started, the Outerlife Design team are the residential landscape design specialists based at the Landscape Supply Yard. Drop into the Yard during the week to see them about how they can work with you to create a new vision for your home’s surroundings. They can prepare everything from a rough sketch to a full 3D computermodelled walkthrough, depending on your design budget. Even if you’re not shopping for landscaping materials, stop in at Coffee In A Box for a morning pick-me-up on the way into town. They’re open from 7am Monday, 8am Saturday and 9am Sunday, so even the earliest birds can get something to perk up their day. Let the team at The Landscape Supply Yard help you get ready for Christmas! Remember, we have fresh-cut pine Christmas trees available throughout December.

FUELLING UP: Shane heads off on another gardening supplies delivery; Sammy from Coffee In A Box makes sure he’s got something to keep him going.

Flavoursome and flexible fennel By TOD PALENSKI, Awapuni Nurseries For those of you who regularly read my gardening columns it probably feels like I’ve extolled the virtues of quite a few vege and herb garden ‘‘must haves’’ in the past few years. If I had to name my top three must haves (lettuce, basil and courgettes in case you’re wondering), fennel wouldn’t be in the list. But it would feature in my ‘‘really nice to have’’ list. ‘‘It’s an incredibly versatile plant, which adds flavour to any stirfry, pie, roast dish, dip and more. While I tend to eat fennel like

I would a leek, peel off the harder outer layers and slice up the white base of the plant to use in pies, salads or stir-fries, you can in fact eat the whole plant. The seeds can be used to spice up dishes and the leaves for garnishes. The only downside to this herb masquerading as a vegetable is that it requires a bit of space to grow. But if you can grow tomatoes, you can grow fennel. They like the same type of conditions (sunny, dry and welldrained) but unlike tomatoes only grow to about as high as your knees. Fennel also grows nicely next to parsley, mint and thyme

for the same reason. Grab some fennel seedlings from your local supermarket, Bunnings or The Warehouse. Alternatively, purchase them from our online shop at and have them delivered direct to your door. Once you’ve got your seedlings and found a suitable spot in your garden, simply dig a little hole and plant. In around eight to 10 weeks, depending on the weather where you are, your flavoursome fennel will be ready to sample. Remember simply throw any parts of the plant you don’t use into your compost.


NICE TO HAVE: Fennel, seen here flowering, is great for adding spice to dishes and as a garnish.

2 Series Coupe here next year By COLIN SMITH The next phase in the re-ordering of the BMW model lineup has been confirmed with the announcement of the new 2 Series Coupe which will reach New Zealand in mid-2014. The upcoming 2 Series will replace the 1 Series Coupe and a convertible version is expected next year to complete the lineup. The two-door 2 Series sees BMW continue to pursue the numerical separation between its mainstream models and the coupe and convertible bodystyles. It follows a similar strategy which has separated the new 4 Series Coupe and Convertible models from the 3 Series and sees BMW using odd numbers for its mainstream models and even numbers for its Coupe, Convertible and new GranCoupe bodystyles. The 2 Series shares it underpinnings with the latest 1 Series hatchback including the rear wheel drive configuration, efficient TwinPower turbo engine technologies and eight-speed automatic transmission. To achieve a sleek silhouette the 2 Series measures 4432mm in length — 108mm longer than the new 1 Series hatchback and 72mm longer than the outgoing 1 Series Coupe (based on the first generation 1 Series). Boasting a traditional ‘‘three-box’’ the new coupe has a clearly defined boot and low-slung silhouette, a long bonnet, doors with frameless windows and a stretched roofline flowing into the rear. The new compact Coupe is also 26mm wider than its predecessor (at 1774mm) and has a 30mm longer wheelbase (2690mm). The front and rear track measurements are increased by 41mm and 43mm respectively. At the same time the vehicle height has been lowered by 5mm and the increase in interior space achieves an extra 20 litres of boot capacity (now 390 litres). The BMW 2 Series Coupe also boasts more efficient aerodynamics than both the BMW 1 Series and its predecessor, as reflected in a Cd of 0.29 for the BMW 220i Coupe. The lineup of engines announced for the 2

Series include 218d, 220d and 225d fourcylinder diesels and two turbocharged petrol engines. The 220i version shares the 2.0-litre petrol engine with the 320i developing 135kW and 270Nm while the high performance M235i version has a 3.0-litre six-cylinder TwinPower engine with 240kW output and 450Nm of torque providing 0-100km/h acceleration in 4.8secs for the eight-speed automatic version. BMW is keen to link the revived use of the number 2 to its 02 series of compact two-door cars — the original 1600-02 introduced in 1966 and the BMW 2002 series which debuted in 1968. Details of the New Zealand 2 Series Coupe range, including pricing and specification, will be released closer to launch in the first half of next year.

Totara Reserve opens for summer December last year we began a native bird monitoring programme, and initial surveying suggests increased sightings can be linked to pest control efforts.

Palmerston North

“We’ve also discovered whitehead and tomtit, which is really encouraging as we didn’t think these two species were present in the Reserve.”

Labour Weekend was opening weekend for one of the Region’s most popular camp sites and Horizons Regional Council is encouraging people to get out and enjoy all Totara Reserve has to offer. Horizons biosecurity and habitat protection manager Bill Martyn says Totara Reserve is the Region’s only regional park and offers plenty of opportunities for people to get up close with nature. “Totara Reserve is one of the best and most accessible examples of the ancient lowland forest that used to cover much of the Manawatu-Wanganui Region,” Mr Martyn says. “It’s a haven for native birds, particularly kereru and tui. In

While it may be too chilly for swimming just yet, Mr Martyn says the park has a number of walking tracks to suit all fitness levels.

What’s on?

“The Fern Walk, which takes 3-4 hours, leads you through the most intact part of the Reserve, while the shorter Pettifar and Gilchrist Loop tracks lead you down to the Pohangina River and make use of the Old Coach Road.

• Regional Council, 5 November, 10am • Catchment Operations Committee, 14 November, 1pm • Regional Council, 26 November, 10am • Audit, Risk and Investment Committee, 26 November, following Regional Council meeting Unless otherwise stated, meetings are open to the public and will be held at Regional House, 11-15 Victoria Avenue, Palmerston North.

“We also have barbeques, toilets, showers and drinking water on site, making it the perfect picnic spot.” Powered and non-powered camping sites are available from Labour Weekend through until Easter Weekend next year. Bookings are necessary for powered sites and can be made by contacting Kelly on 06 3294 737. Unpowered sites operate on a first in first served basis. More information about the Reserve, its facilities and rates for camping is available via the Horizons Regional Council website

Behind the scenes to computer screens From farm to forest and flowing stream, Horizons staff are always on the go to make this Region a great place to live, work and play. While most of this work occurs behind the scenes, we’re bringing a few snippets to the small screen to help you understand how your rates contribute to our Region. Horizons’Clip of the Week is a new initiative showing regional council staff out there doing what they do best. These clips feature on our YouTube channel horizonsrc and are fed through to our website, Facebook and Twitter pages. So far we’ve featured a member of our consents monitoring working with a farmer to test irrigator efficiency; our environmental educator working alongside students at Bushy Park; an iwi-led planting day at Whirokino as part of whitebait habitat restoration; free bus week in Wanganui; our response to calls via the pollution hotline; and our response to recent flooding. The clips will be many and varied as we look to share all the different things we do. Your input is essential to our work so if there is something you’d like to see more of, simply let us know.
