Blood testing woes for Lincoln

CAITLIN MILES

Anger is growing over the

withdrawal of Southern

Community Laboratories blood

testing in Lincoln.

Southern Community

Laboratories stopped giving tests

last month.

Lincoln Community Care

chairwoman Janice Burnett said

Selwyn Times

266mm x 90mm

INSIDE:

the public was angry about this

and the area needed a service.

“Stopping this service has

been an inconvenience. We have

patients from Little River to

Leeston. It’s a big catchment to

provide for,” she said.

Lincoln Community

Committee chairwoman Ivy

Harper said they are gathering

more information about why the

service has ceased and determine

what the options are moving

forward.

Lincoln Community Care is

prepared to have blood testing

in their building on Lyttelton St.

They want Canterbury Southern

Community Laboratories to sign

a contract to allow the service to

stay in the area.

Another concern is how people

will get to Hornby, which is the

closest clinic.

“We could provide the service

for people who can’t access

public or any other form of

transport. Transport is one of our

concerns,” Ms Burnett said.

Blood tests are still carried out

at the medical centre.

But in order to obtain one a

person has to be a patient at the

clinic.

Festival to showcase

region’s craft beers

The best of Canterbury’s craft beers will again be celebrated at the annual

‘A Mid-Winter’s Ale Festival’ being held next month in Rolleston.

Last year’s inaugural event was a complete sell-out with the event proving

so popular festival goers were being turned away on the day due to

limited door sales. This year more tickets have been made available, but

it is envisaged the event will again sell out.

This event is bringing together the cream of Canterbury’s craft breweries

as well as some future stars of craft brewing. It is a celebration of

the growing craft beer industry, allowing festival-goers to try new beers

brewed on their doorsteps.

There will be over 50 different beers available this year, plus ciders, with

new-release local beers served fresh direct from the brewery. Among the

breweries represented will be Eagle Brewing NZ, Wigram Brewing, Vulcan

Brewers, Fiasco Brewing, The Nuts Brewing, Concept Brewing, Emporium

Brewing, Yellow Box Brewery and the Brewers Union. International breweries

will also be showcased with beers from the United States, England,

Belgium, Germany, Denmark and Japan.

Another exciting aspect of the festival will be the first-ever wearable beer

art fashion show, FASHIONALE, for which designers are to produce a

wearable design made from recyclable materials related to beer.

Of course, no festival is complete without live music to add to the atmosphere

and this will be provided by local bands Assembly Required, The

Fishermen and Picking Up the Remnants. Plus, the popular Japanese

Drummers will be giving their best performance for the show.

Freedom campers cost council $13,000

South Island wide solution called for as city ban shifts problem to Selwyn

CAITLIN MILES

Coes Ford’s budget overspend

is likely to continue due to high

numbers of freedom campers

staying in the area.

The reserve has over spent

$13,000 in the last year, $5400

on additional rubbish collection

required because of the number

of freedom campers using the

spot.

The Coes Ford well also

needed to be upgraded earlier

in the year at a cost of $9000.

This needed to be done as the

old well could not cope with the

higher usage of facilities.

Over the summer the district

council reported 200-250

vehicles and tents in the reserve

per night, a mix of international

and national tourists and local

campers using the site.

In March, the Christchurch

City Council placed a freedom

camping ban on areas around

the city and parts of Banks

Peninsula.

District councillor Pat McEvedy

said this put more pressure

on areas like Coes Ford Reserve

as more campers used the spot.

The district council forecasted

that over spending may continue

as numbers of freedom campers

in the area are not easing.

“We know where they are

if they are using Coes Ford

Reserve and other areas with facilities.

It is important that they

have access to good wastewater

and refuse facilities”, he said.

“We are concerned at the

overspend but as we want to

have these freedom campers

in one place rather than spread

out over the district with no

facilities then we are prepared to

accept it until a better response

is in place,” he said.

The district council may look

at better education around options

and some support from

central government as to how

to deal with this situation on a

national basis.

The rising tourism rates for

the country has made freedom

camping bylaws more of a

priority. Cr McEvedy said the

district council would “welcome

a bylaw that is South Island

wide” to put one set of rules in

place, as tourists do not recognise

district boundaries.

RAILWAY CROSSING CLOSED

The railway crossing on Courtenay

Rd in Kirwee, near the

intersection with State Highway

73, will be closed from 7am this

Sunday until 7am Monday May

23. The closure has been requested

by Kiwirail to allow them to

repair wooden sleepers under the

crossing. A detour will run via

Miles Rd through either Highfield

Rd or Ansons Rd to connect

to Kirwee on State Highway 73.

NEW TRANSPORT BODY

The district council has agreed

to join the Greater Christchurch

Public Transport Joint Committee.

The bus system was originally

run by Environment Canterbury

with the district council responsible

for the infrastructure such

as bus shelters, but the whole

system will now be run by the

committee. It will include ECan,

Waimakariri and Selwyn district

councils and the city council. Cr

Sarah Walters was appointed as

the district council’s representative.

The NZ Transport Agency

will have an observer role.

CYCLIST INJURED IN CRASH

A cyclist was taken to Christchurch

hospital after being hit by

a car on Jones Rd near Rolleston

at about 8am on Wednesday

morning. St John sent an ambulance

and rapid response vehicle

to treat the man, who suffered

moderate injuries.

Milestones for zone committee

District

councillor and

Selwyn-Waihora

Zone Committee

member Pat

McEvedy

The Selwyn-Waihora Zone

Committee has achieved

a number of important

milestones.

Formed in 2010 the committee

is made up of a mix of

community members and a representative

from each of the six

runanga who hold kaitiakitanga

over Te Waihora.

The committee’s objective

was to assess the state of the

environment in our district, to

consult and communicate with

stakeholders and community

and make recommendations to

Environment Canterbury, these

recommendations form the basis

for rules and regulations that

will control the environmental

impact of agriculture and community

wastewater systems

among other things.

These rules and regulations

are now reality and will govern

and control the way agriculture

and many other activities operate

for many years, this is called

PC1 of the Land and Water

SOAP

BOX

Regional Plan.

Our over allocated groundwater

aquifers are to be rebalanced

by introducing alpine

water through CPW and retiring

those groundwater takes that

have depleted our lowland

streams and rivers, we have

pioneered the practice of using

excess water from our water

races to also replenish those

streams and provide a low nutrient

source of water to assist in

the rehabilitation of the water

quality in streams and ultimately

Te Waihora.

All farms now have to take

account of their environmental

impact and nutrient loss and

work to mitigate these effects.

Along with this the zone committee

has introduced many

plantings, fencing and the protection

of native bush, streams,

and other areas through its “Immediate

Steps Programme”.

The role of this committee is

now changing to one of overseeing

the implementation of

these rules and regulations and

providing support to ECan and

other agencies. This process

has for me been one of the most

challenging and rewarding

involvements of my life.

The first challenge was to

build productive relationships

between committee members

who held totally different points

of view. Overtime the reward

has been to see the unity and

determination among this group

grow to achieve the common

goal of protecting and enhancing

the environment for our

future generations.

It is also important to point

out that committee meetings are

open to the public and that we

have held upwards of 40 extra

public meetings to involve as

many people as possible in the

discussions and solution.

Finally the membership of

this committee is open to all,

each year there are advertisements

in local newspapers for

expressions of interest so get

involved, keep your eye out for

these ads and if you think you

can bring something to the table

please apply.

A reader responds to last

week’s article on the skate

park expansions in Leeston and

Darfield:

Lynda Jessop, of Leeston: I

would like to say how wonderful

it is to see the new skate park

taking shape at the Leeston Park.

It will be a terrific place for all

age groups to gather showing off

their individual skills. Also I feel

families will go to see what their

children are up to and maybe

even give it a go themselves!

I use to have to take my children

into the skate park on Moorhouse

Ave so they could explore

their daredevil side and the smile

on their faces was priceless after

a day tearing around.

Also the encouragement of

the“bigger kids” showing them

how to do a different trick or

running to help them after a

fall installed in me that not all

teenagers are bad.

It is also great that it is adjacent

to the rugby ground so

maybe while the bigger siblings

are playing rugby the younger

ones can let off steam at the

skate park.

I look forward to hearing

the sounds of laughter, yells of

encouragement and just to see

kids being kids out in the fresh

air. Bring on the scratches and

bruises and tired kids that have

just had a damn good time doing

what kids should be allowed to

do.

Rolly Mowers

Maurice now has a gold card (Oh Dear!)

and intends to enjoy the years ahead.

I wish to thank everyone who has supported me at Rolly

Mowers over the years, it has been a pleasure meeting you

all and your custom has really been appreciated.

Wandering dogs spark complaints

CAITLIN MILES

Molly Gamble’s dogs will not

be found walking around the

streets of Leeston alone.

Greyhounds Kai and Flo

have to contend with a high

fence in order to make a great

escape.

But more than 560 dogs have

been found wandering around

the district according to latest

numbers.

A recent district council

report showed that the top

canine complaint for the past

year was dogs wandering, with

a further 473 complaints being

made about dogs people had

found.

The report compiles

information gathered from July

1, 2014 to June 30, 2015.

Selwyn has a total of 12,352

dogs registered.

There are 65 dogs classed

as menacing and five classed

as dangerous in the whole of

Selwyn.

Barking dogs that were

complained about were

relatively small with only 170

complaints made.

More than $10,900 in fines

were collected by the district

WELL-KEPT PETS: Molly Gamble with Flo and Kai (right).

council for 130 infringements.

Failing to register a dog is the

top fine, with 103 people pinged

with the $300 fine. Seven

people were fined $200 each for

failures to keep a dog controlled

or confined, with just a person

fined $750 for failing to comply

with a menacing classification.

For Mrs Gamble, she sticks to

the rules, not only because she

wants to be a responsible dog

owner.

“I can’t afford a fine,” she

said.

Award haul for athlete

Storms stretch

council budget

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Selwyn runner Rosa Flanagan

has her sights set on next year’s

world championships in London

after taking out three awards at

the regional athletics evening.

Flanagan, 20, was awarded the

junior athlete of the year, distance

athlete of the year, and junior

out-of-stadia athlete of the

year at the Athletics Canterbury

awards evening on Friday.

She said the awards were a

huge step for her development.

“It was good, I was really very

happy . . . I think I’m probably

most proud of the junior athlete

of the year award,” she said.

The awards came after a “year

of ups and downs” for Flanagan.

In February, Rosa and her father

Chris Flanagan made front

page news after they caught an

intruder in their garage. The alleged

intruder, Luke Alexander

Reich, has been charged with

more than 40 burglaries across

Selwyn.

Mr Flanagan rugby tackled

the man to the ground, and Rosa

helped him hold the man down,

while Rosa’s mother Juliet

called the police.

Rosa’s year was highlighted

by competing at the senior world

AWARDS FOR PROGRESS: Rosa Flanagan, 20, received three regional athletics awards for her progress in

long-distance running this year.

track and field championships as

a junior competitor.

She also broke steeplechase

records, and set a national under

20 record in the 5000m race.

However, she is now injured,

and is in recovery for the next

three weeks. She said this may

stop her from qualifying for the

Olympics.

“I’m currently injured at the

moment, and hope to get back

running in about thee weeks

. . . I was hoping to qualify

for the Olympics this year, but

(stuff) happens and now I can

look forward to next year’s

world champs,” she said.

Flanagan’s coach, Maria Hassan,

won coach of the year at the

awards evening, which Flanagan

said is a “deserved” reward.

“I couldn’t be at the awards,

but Maria picked up the awards

for me . . . she got coach of the

year, and she definitely deserves

that. She has so many athletes on

her hands – I don’t know exactly

how many, but there are loads,”

she said.

The district council has nearly

spent double their yearly budget

on tree maintenance due to storms

and growth in townships.

Areas have been hit by strong

winds and snow, leaving trees

damaged and in need of cleaning

up, adding to the cost of general

maintenance.

The full budget for tree maintenance

is $57,000 a year but $104,000

has already been spent on trees in reserves

and on council land.

District council parks and reserves

contracts manager Cameron

Warr said the full budget would

have been sufficient if not for the

bad weather damaging the trees,

growth in the area has also contributed

to the rise in spending.

Three townships have been

identified as the main contributors

to the over spending – Prebbleton

$14,000, Lincoln $37,000, and

West Melton $53,000.

Mr Warr said the spending

is higher in these areas due to

growth and because there are

more reserves in these areas.

The district council also attribute

the cost to contract rate negotiated

being higher than originally

expected and the amount

and standard of maintenance being

higher than anticipated in the

long term plan.

Mel Parsons

From concert halls worldwide

Mel Parsons, talked to Caitlin Miles about her success at the Music Managers Awards last

week, her South Island Wool Shed tour finishing and her upcoming tour to Germany

So how did the Music Managers

Awards go last week?

It went well, it was a great night and

I won the best independent tour so

that was very cool to win something

and be acknowledged for the hard

work that goes into it, behind the

scenes and everything. Those

things are a lot of fun and great

way to catch up with other people

in the industry I haven’t seen in a

while.

Congratulations, what are

the award shows like?

It’s still insane, the

awards shows are a

completely different

world. But on the other

side of that I’ve been

doing it for a long time

so while it’s insane I

feel comfortable being

round it all and I’m

pretty lucky being

surrounded by the

music industry here

because they’re

great people. A good

chunk of the events

is getting to catch up

with people, it’s not

all business, there has

to be some play. The

industry is small so everyone knows

everyone which is what makes it

great.

You have been very busy touring,

what’s the Wool Shed Tour been

like?

It’s been really fun, we’ve just

finished the South Island part of the

tour, what I love about the tour is

going out to the rural areas. Wool

sheds have big spaces and they have

their own vibe when I perform in

them. They are quite nostalgic places

for rural communities. Getting to

tour as part of a comedy gig just gets

everyone in good spirits.

What’s it been like touring with

the Sons of a Bitch?

We travelled by horse truck for

the first time, that was a different

experience, really nice though, no

complaints at all. Again it’s been so

fun they’re great to tour with. We’re

all very great friends, which helps so

it’s just very fun and silly being on the

road with them.

You’ve got a show in Germany

coming up, is this the first time

you’ve gone?

No I did a show when I was out

there about three years ago. It’s a

great place to do shows, I had a great

time when I was there last, the people

are really cool so I always enjoy

performing and being there.

You’re also touring in Australia

soon?

I go over in June for some shows

and then again in July. It’s another

place I really enjoy going to tour

actually, I think it’s because it’s

similar to New Zealand, just a lot

bigger. I’m also mildly obsessed

with the animals. The wombats and

kangaroos are cool. Unfortunately,

I’ve probably seen more of them

sleeping on the side of the road than

actually in real life.

What other places have you been

to?

Let me think, I’ve been to Canada,

the United States, Australia, the

United Kingdom, Ireland and some

other places too that I just can’t think

of.

Has one place stuck out?

That’s a tough one. Everywhere

you go there’s something cool

and different, each place has its

own interesting bits. Ireland was

incredible, the place and people were

just awesome. But every place has

its great things and experiences. The

style of my music really suits North

America so I really love being there

because of the audience.

to chilling out in Springfield

How did you develop your

style?

Being a singer/songwriter I

just want to tell stories. I don’t

think I made a conscience

choice in style, but what I do is

a product of what I listen to and

what I enjoy listening to. I didn’t

set out to make a certain sound it

kind of just worked.

Who is your idol and why?

Mark Knopfler. I’ve just loved

his music ever since I was a kid.

When you were growing up

did you want to be a musician?

I think when I was growing up

I changed my mind nearly every

week, I wanted to be a lawyer one

week then I’d change my mind

and want to be something else the

next. I always loved music and

I learnt to play instruments from

when I was little, so it became the

natural path.

What instruments do you

play?

I learnt to play the piano when

I was five and kept playing right

through high school and when

I was about 14 I picked up a

guitar and that’s when I started

writing songs and singing other

peoples. I also played the drums

for a while when I was 16. I’d

only have a bash around for fun

now though, I couldn’t do it

professionally.

Have you got a musical

family?

My mum can play piano, I

have three siblings, most of them

could probably play chopsticks

if pushed, and everyone enjoys

music, but no one else in the

family was mad enough to

choose it as a career though.

What made you ‘mad

enough’ to pursue music as a

career?

It was always a passion,

I studied a music degree at

Auckland University, and then

travelled around North America

for a bit performing and writing

and stuff and when I came back I

realised if I was going to do this

I needed to knuckle down. So

that was in 2007 when I decided

to work on my first album.

How do you go about writing

a song, do you have a special

spot where you write?

No, I don’t have a special spot,

for me it’s more about finding

and setting aside time. I’m on

the road a lot and being selfmanaged

there is a lot of paper

work and admin, so whenever I

have a bit of time I try and write.

What’s the journey been like

so far?

It’s great and it’s been really

rewarding. Being self-employed

you have to stay motivated,

which can been hard at times but

I have a wonderful audiences

and support base. I get a lot of

FRIENDS: Mel

Parsons has

been touring

with Sons of a

Bitch comedy

duo Emma

Newborn and

Amelia Dunbar.

enjoyment from the hard work I

put it, so I feel really lucky.

Are you creative with things

other than music?

I used to love painting when I

was younger, and I like making

cards and writing letters when

I have time. But most of my

creative energy these days gets

channelled into my music.

What do you think when

you sit back and look at all the

things you’ve done?

I haven’t really sat back and

thought about it, I never really

have time too. When I look at

my air points though I realise

how much I’ve travelled and

how lucky I’ve been.

So Mel did you grow up in

Selwyn?

I didn’t actually, I grew up

on a sheep farm just out of

Westport.

Where in Selwyn did you

move to?

I moved to Springfield about

six years ago.

Why did you move there?

It’s a great community,

lovely people, and we have an

awesome local gym. The big

appeal geographically is being

so close to the mountains, we

have some amazing skiing right

on our doorstep. It’s also nice to

come home to somewhere quiet

and peaceful in between all the

chaotic touring and travel.

You’re lifestyle is pretty

hectic. Do you get any down

time?

It’s a fairly busy schedule but I

do book some down time, I love

skiing, I’m a mad keen skier so

I carve out time in the season

round August and September so

I can go up there. Living close

to the mountains is ideal for that.

That’s what I do in my down

time.

What are the plans for the

future?

As of right now I just plan to

keep touring and writing music

and performing well down the

track.

charm, spit you out with their cheeky Southern wit and

Lake focus of

stage show

Lake Ellesmere/Te Waihora

delicate eco-system will be

presented as a stage show filled

with circus skills, dance and

Maori performing arts by high

school students.

Ellesmere College has

chosen the lake as the basis

of its performance at the

Stage Challenge and J Rock

competition, held at Horncastle

Arena tonight.

Twenty-eight high schools, intermediate

and primary schools

are competing at the event,

where students work together to

portray performances on themes

reflecting issues that concern

them.

The college’s year 7 to year 13

students will use a mix of performance

arts in their performance.

Meanwhile, Darfield High

School will take to the stage

tomorrow night with its performance

Voice the Roar, which

tells the story of humans exploiting

the earth.

Year 13 student Emily de

Rooy said it has been a massive

project that has taken a lot of

work.

Stage Challenge has been part

of New Zealand’s youth performing

arts scene since 1993.

Event manager Hazel Reid

said the competition gives youth

invaluable life experience and

acts as the perfect platform to

showcase talent in all its forms.

Reunion for bed-pushers

A group of former Lincoln

University students reunited

55 years on from breaking a

bed-pushing record set by a

rival university.

In 1961 ten agricultural

science students decided to

beat a ‘bed pushing’ record

set by Massey University

when they pushed a standard

hospital bed around Hagley

Park for three days non-stop,

clocking up a distance of

nearly 500km.

The Lincoln team beat the

record set by Massey University

and boasted at the

time that their effort had set

a new Australasian record.

One of the bed-pushers,

Lincoln University Honorary

Associate Professor

Peter Nuthall, organised the

reunion with fellow bedpusher

Allan Frazer.

“Everyone gets on well,

as we were a close group of

friends as students, and this

has stayed the same after 55

years,” Dr Nuthall says.

The group visited Hudson

Hall, where most of them

had resided at various stages

during their time at the

university.

The bed-pushers have

reunited several times over

the years, including on the

30 th and 40 th anniversaries of

the 1961 event.

REUNION: Six of the Lincoln bedpushers

strike a pose in a Hudson Hall

bedroom during their reunion visit to

during their time as students. Pictured

touted in plan

Looking at housing intensification

for social and older people

housing, are part of long term

plans for the areas.

The district council has opened

consultation on the area plan for

Ellesmere and Malvern. Community

meetings begin tomorrow on

the plans.

Included are the options for

housing intensification and the

feasibility of establishing a

walking/cycling link between

McHughs Forest Park.

The district council has also

indicated it wants to carry out

town centre studies in Leeston,

Darfield, Springfield and Southbridge

looking at issues such as

transport, beautification, accessibility

of community facilities and

business land.

“The area plans will guide the

growth of townships in Ellesmere

and Malvern through to 2031,”

Darfield High School students held their year 12 market day, which is a course component for the

NCEA commerce class. A total of 27 students formed eight different companies. The students had

to write a business plan documenting their operations, production, finance and marketing and also

donate a percentage of their profits to charity. This is part of a nine credit unit where students

must plan and carry out a business activity. They will now review their activity and make changes

before running it again in a second market day later in the year.

Travel Talk with Sue

Avoid the Stress of Travel

Having just returned from a family trip to Hawaii, the importance of

having the right attitude and preparation to the sometimes stressful

situations in travelling is critical. Long waits at airports, flight delays

and baggage issues are all quite common occurrences, so it’s worth the

time to adopt a few strategies to start the trip off in the right direction

especially if you have kids.

Give yourself additional time to get to airports for a start as usually

there’s a mad panic to get out the door. Check in as soon as permitted

and allow yourself some breathing space to allow for traffic and any

final issues. Pack your carry-on baggage to the correct weight as

most airlines are strict on this. Pack some light snacks that are able

to be taken on board (must be sealed) as some airline foods are not

exactly appealing. Liquids in carry-on bags are not permitted unless

you buy them after clearing customs and I can tell you that there

is little tolerance in some regions especially in the USA! Random

testing for drugs is common (as my 11 year olds bags were checked

in Hawaii!). With kids it’s worth the added few dollars to have the on

board entertainment. Long flights can be pretty boring, so with their

carry-on make sure that there’s lots to do. Also check on the cost of

an upgrade in your seating to say Premium Economy for long flights

as the added room is priceless especially if you’re tall.

We’ve found telling the kids in advance that the travel days can

be long, everyone is tired and the queues for customs can be

overwhelming. This has meant no one moans and everyone knows

what to expect.

Take some Medi for kids in case they feel sick and with little ones the

air pressure on descent can be debilitating. Whilst airline crew can

assist, it’s best to try and self-manage with some eucalyptus nasal

sprays that help keep nasal passages open and clear. Lollipops are also

a great option for kids too which assist with the clearing of pressure

on the ears from regular swallowing.

Whilst you may be heading to a warm overseas destination in our

Winter and turn up in Hawaiian shirts all set for the beach, just

remember the on board temperature can be really cold, so maybe your

carry-on could have a change of clothes for when you get there. Those

horseshoe shaped neck pillows might look a little funny but a long

flight at night can see those things being quite comfortable and avoid

you falling asleep against your fellow passengers!

Overall just keep a good attitude and remember all these checks are

for your safety. The more time you give yourself at airports, the less

stressed you’ll be and you’ll start your holiday in a better frame of

mind. Oh last piece of advice…make sure you know the Duty Free

allowance if you bring alcohol to or from your destination as the

variance between countries differs greatly across the world.

Happy Travels.

Youth group makes award final

The Selwyn Youth Council has

been named as a finalist in a

youth awards ceremony.

Council chairwoman Emily de

Rooy will be heading to Wellington

this month to attend the New

Zealand Youth Awards.

The awards are held annually

and recognise young people who

have made a significant contribution

to their community in areas

such as the arts, culture, the environment

and sport.

The youth council formed in

2013 and currently has 13 members.

They developed a youth

strategy with the objective of

having all young people in Selwyn

feel valued and connected to

their communities by working on

a range of projects.

It has contributed more than

2000 hours of voluntary service

to projects which benefit the area.

They established the Pop Up

Cafe as a social enterprise to train

and employ local young people to

help teach them skills to improve

their employment prospects.

In total around 40 young people

are involved in passion projects

designed to benefit young people

and the wider community.

“I am overwhelmed by the

support that the Selwyn District

Council and the community has

given to our organisation,” said

Emily de Rooy.

“Chris Martin, our Youth Advisor,

has been incredibly dedicated

and passionate in giving us the

opportunities that have allowed

us to grow and develop as leaders,”

she said.

Selwyn Mayor Kelvin Coe

says the Youth Council’s nomination

is well deserved.

Selwyn is very lucky to have

such an active, committed group

of young people on our youth

council,” he said.

The New Zealand Youth award

winners will be announced by

Minister of Youth, National MP

Nikki Kaye at a ceremony in

Wellington next week.

legislation, which is designed for

was outdated and did need to be

changed.

But she said the changes proposed

were likely to cause more

problems.

The definition of severe addiction

in the legislation missed the

people at the severe end of the

spectrum, but included people it

shouldn’t.

“The definition in the bill

covers almost all patients

dependent on opiates, cannabis,

and a large number dependent

on alcohol. More concerning

it covers the vast majority of

regular cigarette smokers.”

It needed to be limited to

people who could face severe

consequences to their immediate

health or well-being, like people

who were in danger of becoming

homeless because of their addiction,

she said.

It is estimated only 200

patients each year are likely to

need compulsory treatment, but

the CDHB believes that number

is too low.

The Ministry of Health has

estimated more than 60,000

people in New Zealand have an

untreated substance dependence

disorder.

Dr Nightingale was also

worried many more families

would come forward asking for

treatment if the legislation was

passed, but services would not

have the resources to treat them

all.

“There is a concern that the

bill in its current form will raise

the hopes of family/whanau of

addiction sufferers, some of

whom will become trapped in

a ‘revolving door’ of treatment

non-compliance, relapse and reassessment.”

Canterbury University motivational

interviewing specialist

Mark Wallace-Bell said he

would be very reluctant to force

someone into treatment for an

addiction like smoking.

“People mandated by court

have to turn up, but being there

in person is different to being

there in mind,” he said.

“My general concern would

be that people who are forced to

go into treatment are less likely

to succeed and it makes it a lot

harder for the service provider

or psychologist to give them

treatment.”

He said forced treatment was

a lot more common in some

other countries, like the United

States.

A research review published

in the Harm Reduction

Journal found most studies

recorded people pressured to

get treatment by the courts or

an employer stuck with the

treatment longer and were more

likely to complete the course

than people who signed up

voluntarily.

But most studies it looked at

did not record the long-term

effectiveness of the treatment,

or take into account things like

informal pressure from the person’s

family or friends.

The bill passed its first reading

in March, and a report on the

submissions is due back to

Parliament in September.

Workshop gives

Selwyn

writers a boost

free workshop aims to help

get Selwyn writers published.

The workshop is the second

opportunity for the newlyestablished

Selwyn Writers

Network to meet and discuss

their work and gain some insight

into getting published.

The first meeting of the network

was held in February and

attracted over 40 writers.

New Zealand novelist, non

fiction writer and freelance

journalist Jenny Howarth will

be presenting the workshop.

Her publications include The

Art of War: New Zealand war

artists in the field 1939-1945,

Hooked: the Story of the New

Zealand fishing industry and

The Road’s the Mode: The Story

of New Zealand’s Road Transport

Industry.

Howarth will cover how to

approach a traditional book

publisher including writing

a synopsis, cover letter and

biography of yourself and how

to self-publish a work. The

workshop will also look at the

advantages and risks of selfpublishing,

the importance of

reviews and how authors can

get their books into shops and

libraries.

The workshop is being

organised by district council

and supported by the Selwyn

Arts Trust and is planned for

6.30pm on Tuesday, May 24, at

Lincoln Event Centre.

What foreign scholarships mean

SELWYN TIMES

LOOKING AHEAD: Caroline Pearson, 18, is off to Oregon

State University, where she has been given a four-year rowing

scholarship.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Hundreds of young people head overseas each

year to take up foreign scholarships, and it has

developed into a multi-million dollar industry.

Gabrielle Stuart looked into why our students are

wanted, and where the scholarships lead

AT 18, Caroline Pearson has

been valued at more than

$500,000.

That is what the four year

rowing scholarship she has

accepted to Oregon State

university this year is worth.

She started rowing at 14 as a

student at St Margaret’s College,

mostly because at 1.55m she was

tall for a girl and told she had

the build for it.

But she had developed a passion

for it, and her sights are

now set on rowing in one of

the top boats in the United

States.

She helped her St Margaret’s

school rowing team take

home gold at both the South

Island Secondary Schools

Championships and the national

Maadi Cup regatta.

And it wasn’t only in rowing

she excelled: Working hard

in academics with the goal of

studying law, and playing viola

in the NZ Secondary Schools

Symphony Orchestra.

The scholarship was a way she

could do it all, she said.

“The real drawcard is that

their college sporting system

is almost professional, so you

can go over there and have a

near professional experience

doing the sport you love, and

get a university degree as well. I

didn’t want to just row, I always

wanted to go to uni. Especially

with a sport it’s got a time limit

on it, so there’s always going to

be a time when you can’t do the

sport anymore. This means you

get the overseas experience with

no debt, even after training full

time and studying.”

But getting there wasn’t easy.

While most people she knew

used agencies to navigate the

complicated process of applying

to American universities, she did

it all herself.

She researched the programmes

offered at different

universities, and emailed the

coaches of about 20 different

universities she thought could

work.

About half came back to

her and set up Skype

interviews.

But the time she accepted the

offer at Oregon State, she had

exchanged about 30 emails with

the coach, had about 10 Skype

sessions and made a trip to the

US with her father to visit the

campus.

That was all done around

study and exams while she was

still at school.

AFS is one agency which

helps connect students with

overseas opportunities, mostly

for exchanges but also for things

like volunteer work or university

internships.

AFS communication and marketing

manager Susan Fogarty

said the experience was great

for very driven students, but was

also very good for those who

were still unsure.

“People finish high school and

think gosh, I don’t know what

I want to do, so they go out and

do this.”

The fact universities were

more open to cross-crediting had

driven a lot more students to do

it, she said.

Miss Pearson said she was

open to all possibilities once

she graduated, she did want

to return home after her

scholarship.

SELWYN TIMES Tuesday May 17 2016 17

for young Kiwis

IN ACTION: Bella Forbes playing for the Berkeley

university hockey team in California.

“If a chance came up and

it fit with what I wanted to

do I wouldn’t say no to it,

but New Zealand is a pretty

cool place. I think I would

always want to come back

to it.”

She is now working two

jobs while she prepares to

head to the school in August.

For 19-year-old Bella

Forbes, a scholarship did not

work out so well.

She was accepted into

Berkeley University of

California, which is fourth

ranked in the world, on a

four year hockey scholarship

worth more than $250,000.

But after six months there,

she gave it up to return to

New Zealand.

The level of competition

there was something she had

not been prepared for, she

said.

“To get into Berkeley is

so strenuous, people have

been studying since they

were eight-years-old to get in.

So it’s really competitive in an

academic sense, which meant

people wouldn’t share notes and

petty things like that.”

That carried through to the

hockey field, where she said

the coach was there to win and

worked the girls incredibly hard.

“Towards the end I remember

ringing my mum saying I don’t

want to play hockey at all anymore,

it was that bad. I was used

to having supportive coaches, but

she treated it like it was a job and

we were her employees.”

But in spite of her own decision

to leave, she would still

recommend that others take a

scholarship.

“I think people have to take a

shot. You’ll regret it if you don’t.”

She said it had taught her a

huge amount about the world,

and about herself.

“It was good to get out of

my comfort zone, because

I’m a real home bod. The

people were really nice.

And it was huge, people

who haven’t gone there

can’t comprehend how massive

the place is.”

She had wanted to study

in the US for years, partly

inspired by her father who

had to turn down a scholarship

there.

“My dad is a commonwealth

swimmer, so

when he was my age he

was offered a scholarship.

But back then they weren’t

full scholarships so he was

going to have to pay crazy

amounts of money to go,

which he didn’t have.”

She said her goal was

to study commerce, and

her skill at hockey was her

way in.

She used an agent to apply

for universities and get

in touch with coaches there,

but said it was still about a sixmonth

process dealing with the

16 schools which approached her.

She is now settled back in

Christchurch, studying commerce

at Canterbury University

and playing club hockey.

But she said she had made

lifelong friends while she was

there, and wouldn’t rule out going

back to the US for postgraduate

study.

Cycleway now under construction

A new cycleway is now under construction between Coalgate and Glentunnel.

A 2.4 kilometre long sealed pathway will start on the corner of Gift Street at Coalgate and will extend

alongside Coaltrack Road and Homebush Road (State Highway 77) to finish outside Glentunnel School.

Asset Manager Transportation Andrew Mazey says the cycleway will

encourage more cycling while reducing the need for short vehicle trips

for those who want to travel differently in the area. “This project is

important as it will allow local residents to walk and cycle between the

two townships more safely on their own path without having to use the

increasingly busy State Highway 77 roadway that passes through each

township. The pathway also allows local children to safely walk and

ride to Glentunnel School,” he says.

The $216,000 cost of the track is being funded by the Council and the

path is expected to be finished this winter.

The cycleway will add to a growing number of tracks being developed

in Selwyn as part of Council’s Walking and Cycling Strategy. A new

cycleway is also planned between Doyleston and Leeston next year.

New doors now operating at Lincoln Library

New automatic doors have now been installed at Lincoln Library,

along with a new returns chute.

The new automatic doors at the library’s main entrance provide

easier access for people with pushchairs, wheelchairs or mobility

scooters and were installed based on feedback from customers

that the change would make it easier to use the library.

While the new doors were installed, customers had to use the library’s

back entrance, but people can now use the main entrance again.

A new secure book returns chute using RFID technology has also

been installed beside the library’s front entrance. Library staff

can give you a demonstration on how to use the chute if you

would like help. The chute opens when books being returned are

scanned. It closes automatically after books are returned.

The new system removes items off your card items instantly, without

staff having to check in books. It also ensures that items can’t be

taken out of the return chute once deposited there.

Greenpark Community Centre

opens

The new Greenpark Community Centre will be officially opened on

Sunday, and Selwyn residents are invited to join the celebrations

and view the new facility.

The new centre replaces the Greenpark War Memorial Hall, a brick

building built in 1921, which suffered significant earthquake damage

and had to be demolished in 2012.

Following the demolition of the hall, the Council consulted on

whether a new facility should be built in its 2013/14 Annual Plan.

There was local support for this and construction began in May

2015. The centre and landscaping was completed in March. It is

sited on Greenpark Road, about five kilometres from Lincoln.

The new 494 square metre Community Centre has a large meeting

hall, kitchen, public toilets and smaller meeting room. It overlooks

a reserve and tennis courts which have just been resurfaced and is

across the road from the site of the former hall. The new building

cost $849,000, with $753,000 coming from insurance funds and the

interior fitout cost funded from donations and grants.

The official opening of the new building starts from 2pm on Sunday

22 May. The opening will start at the site of the old hall and then

move to the new building, with the original foundation stone from

the brick building being laid next to the new centre. Selwyn MP Amy

Adams will officially open the new building and the war memorial

roll of honour in the new centre will be rededicated by the RSA.

The opening will be followed by a shared afternoon tea, and a lolly

scramble for children.

The new centre is now taking

bookings – to make an enquiry

please phone Michael on 325 5704.

On the roads this week

Interior

Greenpark Community Centre

Road repairs are planned on Wards Road and State Highway 77,

with traffic controls in place.

On the west side of Rolleston Drive a new shared off road cycleway/

walkway is being constructed between McCauley Street and State

Highway One which will connect Rolleston’s town centre to Izone,

and also provide an off road cycleway for children at Rolleston

School. A new bus shelter is also being installed as part of this work

near McCauley Street.

On Tennyson Street work is taking place beside the road to

underground overhead power cables in preparation for the installation

of new LED street lighting in this area. This is first stage in a project

to progressively upgrade Tennyson Street as part of improvements

to Rolleston Town Centre. This includes the installation of a new

roundabout at the Tennyson Street/Kidman Street intersection,

and then piping the water race running along Tennyson Street

underground to allow a footpath and additional parking to be installed

along Tennyson Street next to Rolleston School.

Road closures – Courtenay and Malvern Hills Roads

The railway crossing on Courtenay Road in Kirwee (near the

intersection with State Highway 73) will also be closed from 7am

Sunday 22 May until 7am Monday 23 May. The closure has been

requested by Kiwirail so they can repair sleepers under the crossing.

A detour will operate via Miles Road through either Highfield Road

or Ansons Road to connect to Kirwee on State Highway 73.

Tara Bridge (south west of Bush Gully Road) on Malvern Hills Road

will be closed from 10-23 May while the bridge deck is replaced.

SELWYN TIMES

Many benefits from insulating homes

HEALTHY: A workman installing insulation under the floor of a

Canterbury home.

A successful partnership

between community, health

and commercial organisations

has helped save Canterbury

DHB nearly $1m, by providing

insulation and/or heating to high

health needs patients.

As well as reducing hospital

costs, it has also assisted in ensuring

people can remain in their

own homes.

In 2011, a Healthy Homes programme

was created between the

Canterbury DHB and the three

Canterbury primary health care

organisations, Community Energy

Action, Environment Canterbury

and the Energy Efficiency

Conservation Authority. Orion

and MainPower also contributed

funding into this programme.

The programme was developed

to keep people in their own

homes and communities rather

than using hospital services. This

recognised Canterbury’s compromised

housing stock following

the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

The Canterbury DHB and partnering

organisations understood

the potential benefits for frequent

users of the health system of living

in warm and dry homes, including

improved physical and

mental health.

The programme initially focused

on people who had been in

the Christchurch Hospital at least

twice within a year prior to the

programme starting (defined as

being the highest-needs patients).

In July 2013, the programme was

extended to include general practice

patients, for example families

with children under 17 years

of age identified as being at risk

and parents with newborn babies.

The programme ran from 2011

to late 2014 and the whole programme

provided over 1500 insulation

installations and 450

heating appliances. Partnerships

amongst the organisations meant

many Healthy Homes’ clients

were referred to other organisations

and services, as additional

needs were identified.

A qualitative report was completed

by Pegasus Health in June

2015 on the whole programme.

Canterbury DHB invested

$1.7m over 2.5 years between

2011 and 2014, covering 22 per

cent of the total programme costs.

Around half of the $1.7m invested

went towards intervention

costs for the 900 highest-needs

patients, as defined above. The

remaining partnering organisations

covered the balance of the

total costs. Of those 900 highest-need

patients, a significant

number of them were aged over

65. There was an approximately

60 per cent/40 per cent split between

home owners and tenants.

After reviewing the health

data, comparing the year prior

to the interventions with the year

following, the findings showed a

29.2 per cent reduction in hospital

bed days of those 900 patients.

This equates to a reduction of

five bed days per annum, a cost

saving to the Canterbury DHB of

nearly $1m.

“This means the programme

was extremely successful for the

community and all involved including

the Canterbury DHB,”

says Caroline Shone, chief executive

of CEA.

“Whilst the cost for insulation

and heating is a one-off, the

benefits last for years. I’m sure

for the Canterbury DHB the return

on investment can be spent

on other health needs. This programme

was a first for CEA and

the other organisations involved,

I am really happy that we have

helped so many people working

in partnership with Government,

private and public sector organisations.”

Greg Hamilton from the Canterbury

DHB said he was “delighted

with the results.”

David Meates, CEO of Canterbury

DHB said: “This is just

brilliant to see the hard evidence

being brought to life.”

The above analysis only takes

into account one of a number of

benefits (hospitalisation) which

result from improving a home’s

insulation. There are other considerable

benefits to this programme

including:

Hospital benefits after the first

12 months – a single intervention

has a 40-year life span taking into

account the life of the insulation;

benefits to partners, children and

others living in the same dwelling;

benefits to future occupants;

reduction in other primary and

community services required for

intensive post-discharge rehabilitation;

reduction in absenteeism

from work/school for all home

occupants due to improved overall

health; people living in their

own homes with better wellbeing

and feeling safer; and empowerment

through improved physical

health, mental health and/

or an improved general state of

mind/well-being; establishment

of other successful working relationships

with a range of organisations,

with a focus to assist

vulnerable families.

To date, EECA has provided

approximately $450m worth of

subsidies for insulation nationwide

through their programmes,

including Warm Up New Zealand.

The Healthy Home Programme

analysis shows the need to continue

with programmes such as

these, particularly when EECA

and CEA through their own surveys,

have identified that there

are still over 30,000 low income

family homes in Canterbury

alone, with inadequate or no insulation.

There have been other relevant

New Zealand studies and discussions

over the years around the

need to improve housing quality

and the associated health benefits.

People at their happiest buying jewellery

EMMA-JANE MCLENNAN

Garnet, granite and jade.

Three stones, from three

corners of the globe – collected

by a young man on his travels, to

be crafted into a ring for the moment

he gets down on one knee

and asks for his girlfriend’s hand

in marriage.

Jeweller Vanessa Stowers,

whose business Filigree is making

the ring, says it is this kind

of story that makes her work so

enjoyable.

“I think I’ve possibly got one

of the best jobs in the world.

I see people at their happiest,

when they’re celebrating,” she

said.

Mrs Stowers started making

jewellery 20 years ago, but her

love for sparkly things started

well before that.

Her earliest memory of buying

jewellery was at just seven years

old, when she and her twin sister

got their first pocket money.

Her sister bought lollies.

But Vanessa went straight to

Northlands Shopping Centre and

bought a blue enamel swallow

necklace.

“I can remember it like it was

yesterday,” she said.

When she finished school, she

started a degree in craft design

at the Christchurch Polytechnic

Institute of Technology (now Ara

Institute of Canterbury). Soon she

was specialising in metalwork,

and that turned “pretty quickly”

into making jewellery. It was an

unorthodox way to learn, but one

that has worked out well, she said.

“Normally to train, you’d

go straight to a manufacturing

firm. My advantage of doing it

differently was getting more of a

design concept – the arty side of

things.”

Being a female in the jewellery

industry was pretty unheard of

at the time. Traditionally, maledominated,

being female has its

advantages she said.

“Jewellery is predominately

worn by women, and it’s usually

an emotive purchase. I think as a

women I can really buy into that

emotional celebration and know

what they’re looking for.”

Now that she’s got her own

jewellery store, she employs two

female jewellers and three males.

“That’s pretty unusual in

Christchurch, post-quake.”

She sells ready-to-wear jewellery

through Filigree and its

PRETTY THINGS:

Jeweller Vanessa

Stowers spends her

days running her

boutique, custommade

jewellery

business Filigree.

sister-brand Filly, but focuses on

custom-made pieces.

She said she “simply cannot

understand” people buying the

likes of their engagement rings

online.

“You know if you’re buying a

fridge, whatever. But there are

very few things in life you’ll buy

that are this emotive. Time needs

to be taken in choosing it, and

making it uniquely yours.”

That’s what she’s focusing on,

and it’s working.

This year she’s celebrated 10

years of the business, and is

looking to expand Filigree’s online

presence, Mrs Stowers said.

“I’ve got a lot on my plate. But

I’ve got just the best team behind

me, and I love it.”

SELWYN TIMES

Prepare for winter

Rachel Vogan talks you through what to be doing in the

garden now

WITH A good chunk of

nature’s planting time –

autumn – behind us, it is

time to start thinking about

what you will get up to in

the garden over winter.

If you fancy putting

away your garden gloves

and boots for a month

or two, no problem, just

make sure you get on top

of some key jobs before

you do so.

To limit the winter load,

trim hedges and edges

now, rake up leaves and

spray paths to remove

lichen and moss.

LAWNS

Weed and feed your

lawns now. This

will give the grass

a welcome boost

after the long, dry

season and set

them up before the

soil temperatures

plummet. You will

notice the grass growth

will be slowing down

as well, which is a good

thing. Be mindful not to scalp

your lawns too short as they will struggle to recover before

winter. If bare patches are a problem, now is a good time to

that is bare, add some lawn fertiliser and then sprinkle on

lawn seed. The seed will be in after a fortnight or so. If you

have domestic animals it might pay to fence off the area

FRUIT

Pears and apples are pretty much

done now. Leave any extras on the

trees, not only will they look pretty,

but the waxeyes will love them once

winter arrives. To store them, place

in single layers in trays or boxes and

keep somewhere cool in a dark place.

Check the fruit often for blemishes, as

once one begins to rot it will infect the

whole lot quickly. In young trees, while

the stems are still flexible, they can

be trained along wires or frames

to make shapes. Doing this now,

before the wood stiffens, makes

the job easier.

FLOWERS

For hydrangeas that have finished

flowering, feel free to prune them any

time from now. Generally cut back by

half. Move potted fuchsias and begonias

somewhere more sheltered, those early

frosts can do some damage. Reduce the

water on geraniums to help harden up

the plants to the colder weather. Last

chance to cut back lavender before

winter – once the wood hardens up, it

doesn’t like a hard haircut. Save seeds

from your sunflower or leave them on

the stems for birds to enjoy once other

food sources have become scarce.

VEGETABLES

Harvest yams once the tops die down and a few frosts have sweetened the

deal. Store as you would potatoes, in a cool, dark place. Sow new rows

of peas now – sugar snaps and snow peas are quick and easy to grow.

More punnets of spring onions can go in, too, as fresh onions are always

welcome in winter, and remember they are perfect for tubs and planters

as they don’t take up a lot of root room. Pick the last tomatoes, peppers,

chillies and eggplants.

Rural health issues discussed

at inaugural conference

The RuRal health alliance aotearoa New Zealand (RhaNZ)

concluded its inaugural RuralFest conference with a priority list for

parliament to contemplate.

The Two-day event held in

wellington earlier this month saw

representatives from 42 membership

organisations come together to

discuss the current issues facing rural

communities and determine the top

five health issues that were important

to take into parliament.

Chairman dr Jo Scott Jones said the

range of concerns reflected the feeling

that we could be doing much better

for people who live and work in rural

communities.

“The top five issues – research,

connectivity, improving wellbeing to

address stress, health facilities, and

health workforce development cover

the whole spectrum of health service

delivery.

“Connectivity is one of the main

issues for rural health. Improved

standards of connectivity would allow

centralised health services to reach

into rural communities and develop

and deliver more innovative health

solutions with greater efficiency,” he

said.

“Prospective staff members in health

services are often reluctant to move

to rural areas where connectivity

standards are substandard. This has

impacts on the recruitment and

retention of rural health providers in

the regions.”

dr Scott Jones said RhaNZ would

like to see all rural medical facilities

to be connected to fibre-like speeds

by 2019 and a more rapid role out of

broadband services.

“The Government’s target to

provide 99 per cent of the population

with more than 50MBs by 2025

will be instrumental in getting

rural communities the broadband

connectivity required, but we want it

by 2020 at the latest.”

also on the top of the agenda was

the issue of rural health facilities,

with the group referring to the

downgrading and closure of rural

hospitals.

“It’s left a gap in rural health and

emergency services in communities

across New Zealand and the increased

separation between patients and vital

services is creating a barrier to health

services,” he said.

“Current facilities should be

maintained and strengthened.”

other issues put to parliament

included the need to fill the significant

gaps in knowledge to inform

evidence-based policy making, rural

mental health funding and the lack of

medical, nursing and social services

professionals in rural communities.

“we’d like to see the Government

adopt the concept of a pipeline

approach to the rural workforce

training – keeping rurally focused

students in rural areas throughout

their training and in their early

postgraduate years.”

dr Scott Jones said the next step

would see the top priorities developed

into a Manifesto that will be published

in advance of the 2017 elections.

“we know these are big issues

that deserve a lot of thinking and

exploration before they can be

implemented. we’re grateful for the

opportunity to put our concerns to

politicians across the entire political

spectrum. From little acorns, great oak

trees grow – we hope we have planted

a few acorns.”

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Former student gives

funding boost for seed science

a FoRMeR lincoln university

student, who embarked on a long and

successful career in the seed industry,

has provided a significant boost to seed

science education in New Zealand.

Selwyn Manning and his wife

Mary signed a Memorandum of

understanding (Mou) with the

lincoln university Foundation on

Friday, May 6 to mark the creation of

the Manning Seed awards, which are

dedicated to furthering education in

seed science and seed technology for

the benefit of New Zealand.

“The seed industry is sometimes

overlooked for funding, as a lot of

people don’t realise how significant

it is,” Mr Manning said at the Mou

signing event.

“These awards are our way of giving

back to a vital sector of New Zealand’s

agricultural industry, which has given

our family so much for so many years.”

lincoln university Professor of

agronomy Bruce McKenzie said at

the event that the seed industry is

vitally important to the New Zealand

economy.

“everything we grow comes from

seeds, so their importance cannot be

underestimated. we’re committed

at lincoln to helping improve the

knowledge of those who will be going

on to work in the seed industry.”

Professor McKenzie said the awards

could be used in a number of different

ways, including providing postgraduate

students with scholarships to improve

their training in the seed science

area, funding for seed research and

upskilling lincoln staff.

Mr Manning studied at lincoln

College from 1962 to 1968 and gained

a Bachelor of agricultural Science and

a Master of agricultural Science in

agricultural microbiology.

among his many career

highlights, he was instrumental in

the development of New Zealand

agriseeds in 1987, the first Southern

hemisphere company to create unique,

scientifically proven, proprietary

pasture cultivars.

“as one of four founding

shareholders, Selwyn was managing

director of agriseeds for 21 years,”

lincoln university alumni and

development director Jo Brady said.

“By the time he retired in 2010,

the company had business interests

in australia, South africa and South

america, with more than 100 staff and

global sales in excess of $50 million.”

Mr Manning also became involved in

the wider seed industry during his time

at agriseeds, chairing the New Zealand

Seed Quality Management authority,

presiding over the New Zealand Plant

Breeding and Research association

for several terms and becoming

the first person from the Southern

hemisphere to serve as president of the

International Seed Federation.

“The seed industry is

sometimes overlooked

for funding, as a lot of

people don’t realise how

significant it is,”

Events aim to help farmers

care for bobby calves

SELWYN TIMES

dairyNZ is running two training events to provide dairy farmers

with a road map for a successful, risk-free calving season.

The BoBBy Calf Focus and

CalvingSmart events are part of a wider

caring for calves programme designed to

equip farmers with the skills, knowledge

and resources to ensure that calves

receive the best start to life. The events

are free to levy-paying farmers and their

staff.

BoBBy Calf foCus

Fifty-seven Bobby Calf Focus events

are being delivered by vets and held

around the country in May and June.

The interactive 1.5 hour workshop has

been developed by dairyNZ to give farm

owners and managers the knowledge to

clearly understand their responsibilities

and provide them with tools for

communicating messages to calf rearers.

Topics will include fit for transport

requirements, loading facilities, good

staff management, and information about

the proposed changes to the animal

welfare minimum standards.

Calving smart

everyone in the farm team can boost

their skills and knowledge at one of 17

CalvingSmart events in June and July.

The one-day event is split into sessions

for different experience levels.

Those new on farm, or within their

first couple of seasons, can learn how to

identify the signs of calving, stages of

labour and normal and abnormal calf

presentation. By the end of the sessions,

participants will know how to handle

newborn calves safely, why it’s important

to feed colostrum and why and how to

record births. wellbeing tips will also

be shared to help farmers stay healthy

through the season.

For on-farm decision makers, there

are sessions on new colostrum research,

simple low-cost management strategies,

managing staff and details of the

proposed changes to the animal welfare

minimum standards.

dairyNZ’s animal husbandry and

welfare team manager Chris leach says

animal welfare is at the heart of good

farming practice.

“our responsibility for the wellbeing

of stock starts at birth and continues, not

only while they are in our care, but also

beyond the farm gate.

“everyone on-farm has a part to play

to ensure that all animals are treated with

respect and cared for in a healthy and

safe environment. ensuring that we have

high standards of animal husbandry and

welfare on our farms is good for us, our

farm teams, our animals, our industry,

and New Zealand’s reputation.”

Widely recognised trades training

the sOuthern Institute of technology

Christchurch campus in hornby offers a

great range of education possibilities for

those looking for a trade’s qualification.

If you are keen on getting involved

in Construction, we offer the national

Certificate in Building, Construction and

Allied trades skills, a 12 week, Level 2

programme. This programme provides a

pathway for students to enter into a range of

trade-related professions and its main focus

is teaching them the practical skills they

require for further study.

We also offer the Level 3 Certificate

in Construction, where students spend

three days on campus and two days out in

the community on work experience. All

students are involved in building a house

from scratch, ensuring sound practical skills

in conjunction with classroom learning.

Our programmes are widely recognized

within related industries and sIt has a

proven record of students moving into

employment or apprenticeships.

Courses are nZQA approved and

the facilities, call 0800 tO stuDY (0800

campus at 60 Waterloo road hornby.

Not all first aid certificates

are created equal

While first aid courses must

achieve prescribed new

Zealand Qualification

Authority (nZQA) standards

to be certified, not all training providers deliver

the same course. Providers offering shortened

courses or courses not meeting nZQA training

requirements are now in the spotlight.

nZQA and the Department of Labour have

published a factsheet to outline requirements

for first aid training based on currently

registered nZQA unit standards. Below are a

summary of what we think you should know.

Course differences

training providers can market their courses

under a wide range of names. employers

should be cautious in thinking that a one-day

workplace first aid course will meet their needs

in industries such as construction, engineering,

forestry and industrial. More advanced

learning is important to meet the proper

workplace assessments and meet health and

safety obligations.

If there are risks of falling, or medium to high

injury, then take careful look in the shortened

courses as these subjects may not be covered.

It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure

that employees attend courses appropriate to

their industry risks.

Unit standard-based first aid training

The minimum duration of first aid training

and assessment will be for training based on:

• unit standards 6400, 6401

(or 26552) and 6402 (or 26551),

a minimum of 12 hours’ training and assessment

• unit standards 6401 (or 26551) and 6402 (or

26552), a minimum of eight hours’ training

and assessment

• For refresher training where the learner’s

certificate is no older than two years and three

months from date of issue, a minimum of six

hours’ training and assessment

First aid training must cover the outcomes

of the nZQA first aid unit standards being

assessed and any additional modules identified

by the employer through the workplace risk

assessment process as outlined in Department

of Labour guidelines. Only first aid training

providers accredited by nZQA can award the

credits and issue a first aid certificate.

nZQA conduct regular external evaluative

reviews on all training providers. new Zealand

red Cross is proud to hold a double highly

Confident accreditation in both educational

Performance and Capability in self-Assessment.

This means that nZ red Cross is a Category

One training provider.

First aid refresher training

refresher training is required every

two years to maintain the certificates.

The requirement allows for a

three-month period of grace, so the cut off

period is two years and three months, which

should allow sufficient time to enrol onto a

suitable course.

If a certificate is not renewed for more

than three calendar months from the second

anniversary date of issue, it will be necessary for

the certificate holder to complete full first aid

training to maintain currency.

For the purposes of workplace first aid

emergency management, employers will need

to ensure that their first aid personnel maintain

competency at all times.

Amarok at home in the rural role

Three years on from driving

Volkswagen’s Amarok at its New Zealand

launch, I’ve finally landed an evaluation

drive on my on patch for the first time.

There’s no one to blame for that, it’s

more because the Amarok is a victim

of its own success. Several times I was

scheduled into one but it was either sold

or availability issues meant it didn’t land

in Christchurch.

Nevertheless, a high-spec Edition R

model was made available for me, it had

all the traditional Amarok features, along

with other interesting add-ons such as

20in wheels, deck cover and side sills.

The Amarok is a traditional double-cab,

four-wheel-drive utility, although twowheel-drive

variants are listed. The range

starts at $43,990, and ends at $69,990 for

the high grade model as tested.

The Amarok is also a bit of a departure

from the norm for light commercials of

this type; interestingly, most variants sell

with a 2-litre engine, and any potential

buyers need to get into the mindset that

it doesn’t need an engine with greater

capacity. However, for those who think

there’s no substitute for size, there is a

new V6 just landing in the range.

The four-cylinder unit will still be the

mainstay of the line-up, it drives through

an eight-speed automatic gearbox. That

number of ratios are becoming is becoming

commonplace in new vehicles,

although it is unusual to find one in a ute.

That aside, the Amarok’s eight-speeder

effectively does away with the traditional

low ratio transfer case. And the gearbox

is a beauty, it will promote slow speed

off-road travel along with ratios that even

out to provide fuel efficiency at highway

speed. In between, the gearing shifts

seamlessly and works the four-cylinder

diesel effectively.

The Amarok impresses with its refinement

and practicality. It has a deck size

up to par with the competition and a cab

area that is roomy, comfortable and very

car-like in terms of layout. Volkswagen

has done well to disguise the utilitarian

feel of a ute, the Amarok rides comfortably

even without a load on, the rear end

jiggle that characterises many utes has

VOLKSWAGEN AMAROK: Now with the choice of four-cylinder or V6 engines.

been almost engineered out of the vehicle.

Of course, it would ride better with a

bit of weight over the rear axle, but with

the deck cover attached I never entertained

the idea of carrying a tall load.

Even though the Amarok is large at

over 5m, it doesn’t feel like a big ute to

drive, and that has a lot to do with the

sophistication that has been built into the

vehicle, but you’d expect nothing less

from Volkswagen.

Under the bonnet sits the twincamshaft,

16-valve turbocharged diesel

engine. It is rated by Volkswagen at

132kW with 420Nm of torque. And with

the low and close ratios of the gearbox,

the engine never seems to go off song, it

is responsive and willing, it is also quiet

when operating hard.

It also rates well with fuel usage.

Volkswagen also claim an 8.3-litre per

100km (34mpg) combined cycle average.

The fuel usage readout was listing

around 9.2l/100km (31mpg) when I took

the ute back after testing. At 100km/h the

engine sips fuel at the rate of 8.5l/100km

(33mpg) with the engine loping over at

just 1700rpm.

I took the test car on a Hororata/

Dunsandel loop, spending a bit of time

on the shingle roads which run parallel

to the Hororata River. The Amarok

steers directly in the loose shingle with

positive feedback of what the tyres are

doing transmitted to the steering wheel.

Providing the grip are 265/50 Nexen

tyres, they are a chunky tyre which are

a satisfactory compromise between what

is needed for grip in the loose and on the

seal.

They are also quiet at highway speed,

the Amarok travels without catching the

air, and when presented with a corner or

two it steers directly. Utes with their load

bearing live rear axles are never the best

handlers, but the Amarok equips itself

well, and such is the information gathered

at the steering wheel, it feels relatively

agile.

There may be the four-wheel-drive

purist who will argue that the Amarok

isn’t a serious off-roader given that it

doesn’t have a high/low ratio transfer

case. However, I can report that

on Volkswagen’s media launch for the

Amarok it equipped itself in rugged,

very low grip conditions. Slow speed

momentum downhill can be locked to a

crawl through a descent mechanism, and

drive is distributed efficiently to all four

corners.

I believe it is as capable as any of the

competition, and it rates highly in terms

of occupant comfort and practicality. It

has a cabin which is comfortable, and

equipped with all of the elements which

make Volkswagen so popular as a car

maker.

I also think Volkswagen has done well

breaking into a fiercely competitive part

of the market, the ute segment is one of

our most popular. It’s just as well it competes

strongly amidst the opposition.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

A considered approch

to selecting a builder

Building a home is a major investment

with some risk and much hope that the

outcome will be as expected.

When we contract a building company to

build our home, we are placing considerable

trust in their ability to listen to what we

want, do a good job and deliver as promised.

it therefore makes sense to do some serious

research first.

ask people who have built recently about

their experiences, research on-line and visit

show homes before drawing up a list of

potential companies to talk to.

“look for an experienced builder who

is affiliated to one of the national building

associations such as the Registered Master

Builders’ association,” recommends Rob

Jones from artisan Homes.

He says that it is preferable that the builder

has experience in the region with knowledge

of ground conditions, its land classification,

seismic risk and an understanding of local

climatic conditions.

Rob recommends choosing a builder who

is experienced in working with local councils

and their planning regulations, as this may

potentially save time and money when

lodging consent applications.

Before meeting with building company

representatives, draw up a list of queries to

be answered, such as:

Will a comprehensive Contract of Works

insurance that covers the complete job at

each stage in the build, the materials and

public liability, be provided?

Can you meet the company’s owner? if

not, will they be there to assist, if you have a

problem during or after the build?

do they guarantee their work?

Will accurate build estimates be provided

throughout the initial design meetings? Rob

says that it is crucial to have an accurate

build estimate from the outset to avoid

surprises or budget over-runs.

do they use quality materials and deal

with reputable merchants?

does the building company have their

own sub-contractors who are licensed or

registered?

do they have a clear and transparent sales

process?

is the person you will deal with, a good

communicator who listens and corresponds

in writing efficiently?

What progress payments will be required

and do these comply with recommended

industry standards?

is the company building agreement

current, incorporating the recent Building

amendment act changes?

does the company have efficient

administration processes with a proven

project management system so expensive

unnecessary delays and the potential for

incorrect features or fittings, are avoided.

does the builder have a good working

relationship with a designer who can

produce an innovative, functional and stylish

design, even when on a budget?

Retain all written communication and

note down any verbal communication.

“look for a builder who is prepared to

go the extra mile such as carrying out a site

assessment, researching specialty products

and providing good purchase advice,”

advises Rob. “it is also important to choose

a builder who will stand by his work, even

beyond regulatory requirements and written

guarantees. You want to know that the

builder will stand by and support you as a

client.”
