Opposition to quarrying plan mounts

TOM DOUDNEY

Controversial applications to

allow quarries to dig below

highest recorded groundwater

levels are on shaky ground with

two reports recommending they

be denied.

Environment Canterbury

and the city council have

both recommended to hearing

commissioners that the

Canterbury Aggregate Producers

Group resource consent

application not proceed, due to

the threat to groundwater.

The application has received

widespread opposition from

residents.

The reports are a blow to

the Canterbury Aggregate

Producers Group – a group of

eight quarry owners which made

the applications – ahead of the

resource consent hearing on

June 13.

One of the applications is

for the Selwyn Quarries site

on Selwyn Rd, with the others

relating to quarries at McLeans

Island and Yaldhurst.

The applications drew 614

submissions, almost all of

which were in opposition to the

quarries’ plans.

The quarries, which are

currently allowed to dig down

to 1m above highest recorded

groundwater levels, have argued

that if they aren’t allowed to

dig deeper they may not be able

to produce enough aggregate

for the local market in the near

future, threatening earthquake

rebuild activities.

The ECan report stated that

while the risks to public health

were very low it was possible

that quarrying activities could

affect the taste of groundwater

for residents connected to

nearby bores, making it

unpalatable.

“As suitable mitigation has

not been provided for by the

applicant we regard the risks

posed by the activity to the local

environment as unnecessarily

high.”

Car park controversy continues

TOM DOUDNEY

Lincoln could lose car parks

along Gerald St sooner than

anticipated if proposed changes

to the draft town centre plan are

adopted tomorrow.

The spaces would make way

for a more defined cycleway

than currently exists between the

town centre and the university.

Under the draft plan, an

improved cycleway was to be

completed between four and

seven years from now. However,

proposed changes would see an

initial version of the cycleway in

place within the next one to four

years, before upgrading it later.

The loss of car parking has

been a controversial point with

local business owners in an

otherwise well received plan.

Deputy mayor Sarah Walters,

who chaired the hearing panel,

said prioritising walking and

cycling had been a common

request from submitters and

would create a better link

between the university and town

centre.

“We wanted to get some runs

on the board initially to help

improve the connectivity,” she

said.

Removing the car parks could

GOING, GOING . . . GONE? Car parks on Gerald St could be lost within the next four years under

proposed changes to the draft Lincoln Town Centre Plan.

take place as soon as within the

next 12 months.

“There are actually quite a

few areas around town which

actually aren’t marked as car

parking on some of the side

streets and we will be providing

additional car parking spaces

before those car parks are

removed on the main street.”

This would not involve

creating new car parks, but

would see them marked and

signposted more clearly to make

it easier for people to identify

them as car parks. Other existing

car parks would be used “more

efficiently” by adding time

limits to some car parks.

Cr Walters said about 20

Gerald St car parks would be

lost, all west of the main business

area, but in her experience these

were quite often unused.

Hammer Hardware owner Lynn

Townsend, who has previously

criticised the loss of car parks,

was surprised to hear they were

bringing the work forward.

“So basically they want

to destroy the businesses of

Lincoln a bit quicker than we

thought?” he said.

Ms Walters said other options

to provide car parking around

the town centre would continue

to be investigated.

“The plan once it is adopted

will continue to evolve, so

options that aren’t available

now might be available in the

future,” she said.

BEALEY BRIDGE TO CLOSE

Bealey Bridge, Arthur’s Pass, will

be closed from 8 pm Saturday,

through to 6am on Sunday. The

repairs on the bridge have been

going on for several months. The

New Zealand Transport Agency

has requested the closure to allow

for the final repairs to be carried

out on the bridge which is

about 9 km from Arthur’s Pass on

the Canterbury side of the Alps.

NZTA is advising drivers take the

Lewis Pass route between Greymouth

and Christchurch.

STEAM TRAINS FOR 150TH

Kiwirail has granted the use of

its tracks in Rolleston for steam

trains. The steam trains will be on

display as part of the Rolleston

150 th celebrations. A committee

is currently planning and fundraising

for the 150 th anniversary

for the town. Over the last year

several townships around Selwyn

have hosted their 150 celebrations,

including Southbridge and

Leeston. The Rolleston event will

be held in October this year.

DARFIELD CENTRE FUNDING

Darfield Recreation and Community

Centre have requested an

additional $52,500 worth of funding

in the 2016-2017 draft annual

plan. The centre has requested the

money for work including a post

and chain fence, replacing rusted

pipes, tree removal and increase

of care to two hours a week.

Cream Can

Corner

history

recognised

An intersection in Rolleston with

a quirky nick-name is about to

get a sign explaining it’s history.

Cream Can Corner is the name

of the intersection of Lowes Rd

and Goulds Rd.

The intersection gained its

name because of the cream can

stand there in the 1940’s.

The district council is planning

to make a sign for the site to

explain the history of the corner

in more detail and provide background

on Rolleston’s history. A

date is yet to be set for when the

sign will be put in place.

Twice a week a Tai Tapu dairy

truck would stop at the small

wooden platform built at the base

of the blue gum tree to collect

cans of cream left by local farmers.

The stand was used by two

farmers during the 1940’s and

1950’s: James and Magaret Brosnahan

on Goulds Rd and John

and Ngaire Foster on Dynes Rd.

In 2008 Cream Can Corner was

purchased by the district council

and the blue gum tree where the

cream was left for collection now

has heritage status.

Opposition to

quarrying

plan mounts

•From page 1

The city council report found

that “the proposal as it stands

has the potential to have more

than minor adverse effects on

downgradient groundwater

quality, with associated health

risks for downgradient water

consumers.”

It also deemed that the quarries

had “overstated” how much

the application being approved

would help the rebuild.

“There is currently adequate

supply of aggregate within the

district to meet recovery needs

and forecast demand to 2030.”

CPAG spokesman Brian

Warren said the quarries would

leave a full response to the

points raised in the reports to

the hearing as the issues were

complex.

“There is absolutely no

question that anything in the

proposal either exposes or digs

into groundwater, that’s one

misconception that has been

bandied around a fair bit,” he

said.

Greenpark hall opened

after long battle

After a long battle with the district

council, the new

Greenpark Community Hall

officially opened at the weekend.

The original Greenpark hall

was badly damaged following

the September 2010 and February

2011 earthquakes, and had to

be demolished as a result.

Greenpark also lost their

primary school not long after the

hall was demolished as part of

the seven schools the Ministry of

Education closed in 2013.

After losing the school the

community fought to convince

the district council to rebuild the

hall.

Greenpark Memorial Community

Committee chairman Terry

Lassen said the district council

at the time thought the Lincoln

Event Centre would be close

enough to serve the community

needs.

“It was a fight to get it back. . .

we had to stick to our guns. It is

important to have that especially

with more people coming in[to

the area],” he said.

The new facilities were built

on Greenpark Pavilion, across

Domain.

the road from the original site.

The total cost of the build

was $849,085. The fit out of the

building was funded through

grants and donations. The facility

includes a large meeting room,

floor space, storage rooms and

lockers and a kitchen.

The original stone foundations

were transported from the

old site across the road to the

new site while accompanied by

bagpipes before it was laid at the

new hall.

Selwyn MP Amy Adams cut

the ribbon to officially open the

new building. Greenpark RSA

president Ivan Norton helped

unveil and read out the war memorial

plaque before the public

were invited to look at the new

facilities.

Fire ban lifted

but caution warned

The prohibited fire season ban

has been lifted but authorities

are still warning people to be

cautious.

An open fire ban was put in

place two weeks ago due to low

rainfall.

The ban meant no outdoor

fires could be lit in the district

and burning crop stubble was

also not allowed.

Although the ban has been

lifted principal rural fire officer

Douglas Marshall warns

people to still use caution

when lighting fires.

“While rain over the past

few days has reduced the fire

risk, we request that people

continue to exercise extreme

caution if lighting a fire in

the open and follow all safety

precautions,” he said.

This prohibited fire ban lift

does not apply to Department

of Conservation land and there

is still a year-round restricted

fire season in place in the hill

“It will be common over the

next few weeks for property

owners to undertake vegetation

fires in rural areas in Selwyn.

To avoid unnecessary call

outs of volunteer fire forces

people are asked to check

whether fires are being supervised

before dialling 111,” Mr

Marshall said.

District council guidelines

say fires should only be lit in

daylight hours and should not

be lit when strong winds are

blowing or forecast.

The fires must also be lit in

an area that is surrounded by

firebreaks and are clear of any

standing vegetation. People

should also make sure there is

a water supply available near

the fire.

Lincoln Event Centre

Saturday 30 July 2016

We are thrilled to announce two new sponsors of the

2016 Sensational Selwyn Awards

IPORT as the sponsor of the Arts & Culture Awards

The $500 million South Island Industrial Port or

IPORT is located on 122 hectares of prime industrialzoned

land in Rolleston. Developed by the Carter

Group, Stage 1 kicked off with the sale of 27

hectares to Lyttelton Port of Christchurch (LPC) who

are developing an inland port, MidlandPort.

I PORT will provide organisations access to the

efficiencies and convenience of being located next

to an inland port. Most of the large sites that share

the common boundary with LPC are for lease, with

a small number for sale.

Challenge as the sponsor of the Community Services Award

Where we have come from:

Challenge was formed in 1998 in an initiative by Fletchers, who saw an

opportunity in the New Zealand fuel supply industry to create an independent

retailer network. The goal was to create a network that could compete with

the big four corporate fuel entities.

The reason we do what we do:

We’re the little dog with the big bite. Challenge is a brand that cherishes its

Kiwi independence, value for money, down-to-earth service and being genuine

with our customers. We remain different simply by staying true to our identity.

The majority of Challenge sites are independently operated by people who aim

to provide the warm, personal and friendly service our customers deserve.

Don’t miss your opportunity

Sensational you are!

Assisting families

into their own homes

Home ownership is important

because it brings security to

individuals and their families.

That’s why the Government

has a wide-ranging programme

aimed at improving housing

supply and affordability.

As part of this programme,

last April the Government

doubled the level of financial

support available for first-home

buyers through the KiwiSaver

HomeStart scheme.

Recently, I have been contacted

by some Selwyn families,

thanking me for the Government’s

HomeStart programme.

These families have told me that

their dream of owning their own

brand new home in Selwyn was

previously out of reach but that

being able to access their KiwiSaver

funds for a deposit has

enabled them to do just that.

Between April 1 last year and

March 31 this year, 110 properties

have been purchased in

Selwyn using HomeStart grants

worth a total of $1.21 million.

The same scenario is playing

out around the country,

with the figures showing that

in its first year the scheme has

helped 11,943 people into their

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

first home, with grants totalling

$55.6 million.

And to make the scheme

even stronger, the Government

has decided to alter one aspect

of the KiwiSaver home buyer

programme in respect of secondchance

home-buyers.

The change being made from

July aims to better help mid-life,

middle-income New Zealanders

who have been through a separation

or business failure and are

struggling to get back into home

ownership by enabling them to

access their KiwiSaver funds.

The way the current scheme

works is that it limits KiwiSaver

withdrawals to first home buyers

and people who have previously

owned property but have low assets

and earnings. The asset limit

is 20 per cent of the house price

caps of $550,000, $450,000 and

$350,000, and the income limit

is $120,000 for a couple and

$80,000 for an individual.

The income limits are being

removed on July 1, 2016, meaning

a second-chance homeowner

with few assets will be able to

access their KiwiSaver funds to

buy a home regardless of how

high their income is.

Other steps that the Government

has taken to help make

home ownership more affordable

include rolling out housing

accords to release more land for

development. One such accord

was signed here in Selwyn by

my colleague Dr Nick Smith,

Minister for Building and Housing,

and Selwyn Mayor Kelvin

Coe last December.

With mortgage interest rates at

their lowest levels in half a century

and these additional changes

to the KiwiSaver HomeStart

scheme, there will be even more

opportunities for people to buy

their own home in Selwyn.

Readers replied to an article

in last weeks Selwyn Times

regarding blood test services

being removed from Lincoln

Claire Wratten, of Lincoln –

Blood tests are a vital part of the

general practitioners’ armoury.

The earlier medical problems

can be diagnosed, the better the

outcome for both patient and the

health service.

To offer blood tests only if the

patient can get to Southern Community

Laboratories in Hornby,

serves only the relatively fit

(who can walk the distance from

the bus stop or drive).

This leaves the more vulnerable

patients without the service that

Southern Community Laboratories

contracted to do. Lincoln

Community Care has offered a

venue in Lincoln; it is the Southern

Community Laboratories

moral duty to sign a contract to allow

this service to stay in Lincoln.

Margaret Cole, of Lincoln

– It is beyond belief that the

Southern Community Laboratories

blood testing in Lincoln

is being withdrawn. Surely the

people requiring this service

have a health concern and being

asked to travel to Hornby is too

much.

Also please tell me how you

can travel to Hornby by bus

from Lincoln? There is no direct

bus service to Hornby from

Lincoln as far as I know.

A M Ferguson, of Lincoln – I

would like to add my voice to

the complaints about the withdrawal

of the testing service

from Lincoln.

I’ve lived here for years and

always admired the medical care

provided, but sadly cannot say

that now. We need solid services

including blood tests, especially

with the huge local population

increase.

I realise Southern Community

Labs are a business firm and

would have thought this increase

made sound business sense.

Personally I can bus to Riccarton

but would have to risk my driving

to get to Hornby.

Lynda Gowers – Moving the

service to Hornby is unacceptable.

Some people don’t have

transport and there is no bus

service to Hornby.

Even some older people who

do have transport are stressed

about having to make the journey

to Witham St. Blood testing

needs to be re-instated somewhere

in Lincoln for all patients.

Readers respond to an article

about freedom campers at Coes

Ford

Kate Davey – As I understand

it, freedom campers are

those who have fully equipped

vans such as washing facilities

(shower) and toilet.

Anyone who does not have

these facilities is not a freedom

camper – they are freeloaders

who expect the New Zealand

ratepayers to subsidise their

holiday. The purpose of places,

such as Chamberlains Ford, is to

provide amenities for picnickers,

day-trippers or possibly as

a one-night stopover for travellers.

It is not intended as a free

camp ground for prolonged stays

which is what is happening.

Try stopping at some of these

places for a picnic and find out

just how unwelcome you can be

made to feel!

John Key is incorrect in saying

that this category of tourist

spend many, many dollars.

By their own admission, some

interviewed “campers” have

stated they are on tight/very

low budgets that do not include

campground charges, restaurants

or even tourist attractions.

They also said they sneak

proper showers at available

camps (where they will not get

caught). All of which impacts on

the providers of these services,

particularly campgrounds. Oh

yes, they are contributing handsomely

to the tourism coffers.

An interesting exercise would

be to find out their actual spend,

as opposed to the extra councils

are paying for toilets, rubbish removal

and general maintenance

in these areas.

Otherwise all ratepayers will

be paying dearly for the pleasure

of having such freeloaders

in New Zealand. We cannot

freedom camp in their country

so why is it permissible for them

to do it here?

Simple solution – ban all

“freedom campers” who do not

have fully-equipped vehicles.

They could display a certificate,

or similar, to prove this.

Everyone else (after a night)

gets fined, towed, or clamped,

until the fine is paid. I am sure

there would be a surfeit of companies

willing to do this and it

only takes a few fines to get the

message across.

Sandra Foote, of Leeston –

Can I just say thank you for freedom

campers because without

them Coes Ford may not have

had the upgrade that it so badly

needed.

Our family camps down there

long weekends, short weekends

just whenever we can get away

and it is great to see the improvements.

Previously, the rubbish bins

were quite often overflowing

and the toilets – well let’s not go

there and this was well before it

became really popular with the

freedom campers.

Also I get sick of the freedom

campers getting such a bagging

from people.

We have meet some wonderful

people of all ages, its great to

talk to them and find out where

they are from, why did they pick

New Zealand, where are they off

to after this and of course to hear

how beautiful our country is.

If some people took just 10

minutes to say hello I’m sure

they will see them through different

eyes.

They also spend money in the

community which must be a

good thing.

A reader responds to an article

about dogs in Selwyn

Samantha James, of Leeston

– I do a lot of walking around

Leeston township and the

greater area and have always

been impressed at the dog

owners.

The ones I see have their dogs

on leads with a couple of dogs

with muzzles.

When I have asked if their

dogs bite, the owners have said

no, it’s just in case as they would

not like anyone to get hurt.

To be honest there are a couple

of dogs that rush to the gate

barking their heads off.

It gives me a fright but as long

as they are behind locked gates I

feel safe.

I would like to see maybe an

article in the paper from the

council dog control on how to

react to a dog if it is not on a

lead and wandering.

Also does the council go to

the local schools and talk to

the children on a regular basis,

maybe this could be a priority.

Youth offenders to benefit

from bicycle repair project

SELWYN TIMES

opinion? Facebook us on facebook.com/riseupchristchurch/

Prisoners may be given a bicycle

on their release, thanks to a new

youth offender project.

A repair workshop has been

set up in a disused shed at

Christchurch Men’s Prison,

which has youth offenders

repairing old bicycles.

Once they are ready they are

given to released prisoners who

may be in need of the most basic

means of transport in their early

days of release.

The idea came from Youth

Unit staff who have been

coming up with innovative ideas

to provide the youth prisoners

with activities.

Principal Corrections Officer

Gary Smallridge said the focus

of the project is to identify

ways to keep youth engaged in

education and learning.

“We aim to provide activities

that not only occupy the young

prisoner’s time but also add to

their learning, with tasks that a

typical young person would be

interested in,” he said.

The project is proving to be

a hit with the youth offenders,

said youth unit corrections

REJUVENATION SCHEME: Youth Unit Corrections Officer Kieran

Giles helping one of the youth help restore a bicycle as part of the

prison’s new youth strategy acceleration project.

officer Kieran Giles, who is

helping with the project.

Mr Giles said he has combined

his bicycle mechanical and

adventure outdoor experience

to help young men learn real

mechanical skills.

The Pathway Trust has been

supplying tools to repair and

restore the bicycles.

He said he intends to

refurbish the old prison

bicycles before being provided

with disused ones from the

community through The

Pathway Trust’s donations.

COUNT THE STEPS: Southbridge Primary School pupils received a

visit from Wayne and Steven Maw, Shane King and Brendon Lean

from Southbridge Volunteer Fire Brigade last week. The firefighters

are taking part in the Sky Tower Challenge this weekend. The students

walked 1267 steps with the firefighters to see what it was like to climb

the Sky Tower. The school raised $136.70 to go towards fundraising for

the challenge.

Selwyn celebrates

Matariki

During June Selwyn residents are invited to join in the celebrations for Matariki – the Māori

New Year.

Matariki is the name for the group of stars also known as the Pleiades star cluster or The Seven

Sisters. The New Year is marked by the rise of Matariki and the sighting of the next new moon.

On Saturday 25 June a free event is planned featuring renowned artist Marcus Winter who will

Water meter bills out soon

Some households on Council water supplies will recently have received water meter bills for the past

six months or will receive bills during May or June.

From 1 July 2015, the Council adopted a new way to fund the cost of providing water. A standard

district wide rate of $350 a year was introduced for most townships on a Council water supply.

Households with a water meter installed who use over 375 cubic metres of water a year will also pay 40

cents per cubic meter of water on top of this charge. A cubic meter is 1,000 litres of water.

Under the new system, households have the ability to control how much they spend on water by

limiting water consumption.

Some properties connected to Council water supplies won’t have received a water meter bill. If you

didn’t receive a bill this means you either don’t have a water meter installed or you do have a meter

installed but didn’t use more than your allocation of 375 cubic meters of water. By 2018, the Council

plans to have water meters installed at all properties. More information about water charges is available

online at www.selwyn.govt.nz

Rolleston, Burnham and Edendale properties pay a reduced charge of $200 per year and a charge

of 40 cents for every cubic meter (1,000 litres) of water used. This charge is designed to encourage

careful water use by allowing properties who have low water use to pay less in water charges. From

1 July 2016, Armack Drive, Claremont, Darfield (urban), Doyleston, Johnson Road, Raven Drive and

West Melton water supplies will move to the same charging system in place in Rolleston. By 2018 all

townships will be charged a base rate and volumetric charge like Rolleston.

On the roads this week

Road repairs are scheduled to take place on Wards Road, with traffic controls in place. Footpath repairs

are also taking place in West Melton.

Work to extend Broadlands Drive to connect to Springston Rolleston Road and install a new

roundabout at the junction is continuing. A sewer main is also being laid on Springston Rolleston Road,

terminating just before the new roundabout. Temporary traffic signals are in place with short delays for

road users especially at peak times.

The NZ Transport Agency will close Bealey Bridge near Arthur’s Pass on State Highway 73 from 8pm on

Saturday 28 May until 6am on Sunday 29 May for repairs.

Rolleston Town Centre roading

projects under way

Some of the first roading projects planned as part of improvements

to Rolleston’s town centre are now underway.

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

walkway is being constructed between McCauley Street and State

Highway 1 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 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 the 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.

In July, the roundabout at the intersection of Lowes Road, Tennyson

Street and Springston Rolleston Road will be realigned to close

off access from Goulds Road to improve the intersection safety.

Access to Rolleston from Goulds Road will then be through

Broadlands Drive, or to east Rolleston and Lincoln via Dynes Road.

A further intersection safety improvement planned in 2017/18 is to

install traffic lights at the intersection of Masefield and Rolleston

Drives (near Countdown).

...Get a consent to

install a woodburner?

As winter approaches, the Council is often

contacted by people wanting to install or replace a fire.

Unless you are on a property which is larger than 2 hectares

you will need to check your new woodburner meets

Environment Canterbury air emission requirements. A list of

approved models is available online at www.ecan.govt.nz/

approved-woodburners.

You will also need to apply for a building consent from

Selwyn District Council to install a woodburner. You don’t

need a building consent to install a heat pump, but it

should be installed by a registered electrician.

You can lodge a consent online at www.selwyn.govt.nz/

building. The application is lodged as a standard building

consent. Under the Building Act, the Council can take

up to 20 working days to process the application but

most applications are processed in around two weeks

if you provide us with the correct information when you

lodge your consent. The cost of the consent is $350 for a

freestanding woodburner or solid fuel heater, or $500 for

an inbuilt model. If the application is complex or the details

change and additional time is required to process it, there

may be an additional charge at cost.

If you purchase your woodburner through an approved

installer they will often lodge the building consent

application on your behalf. You can lodge the consent

yourself if you wish to and you will need to supply some

supporting information including a Certificate of Title for

your house (available from www.linz.govt.nz), a floor plan

showing the location of the fire and smoke detectors, flue

installation details and height, flashing type and whether

your ceiling is flat or sloping. Please contact the Council’s

Building Team on 347 2839 to check what you need to

supply. If a wetback is to be installed information is also

required on this.

Career in headwear at a peak

EMMA-JANE MCLENNAN

“I’ve just got to seize every

opportunity I can.”

That’s the mantra driving

Adrien Taylor, who left a

high-profile broadcast career to

travel overseas, film a climate

change documentary and start

two different businesses – in

one year.

The 26-year-old Christchurch

man has found his latest

success with Offcut Caps,

a business creating limitededition

caps out of fabric scraps

destined for the dump.

“It’s just taken off, our first

lot sold out really quickly and

we just couldn’t keep up with

it.”

The business started soon

after Mr Taylor left his role as

environmental reporter at TV3

– now Newshub – last year.

“I had no plans, I just wanted

to start my own business and

take the opportunities as the

come,” he said.

Soon after he was offered

a contract to film a climate

change documentary in Bangladesh

for the United Nations.

While he was there, he got

the news his custom-made

furniture ordering business,

Bamtino, had been accepted

into a Lightning Labs accelerator

programme.

That business was barely off

the ground before the second

one started. The idea for Offcut

Caps was sparked when Mr

Taylor visited his father’s

wholesale curtain business, and

spotted a heap of fabric offcuts

ready to go to landfill.

“I said: ‘Can I buy them?’ He

said no, you can’t buy them, but

you can have them.”

That’s when Mr Taylor

Skype-called his best mate

Matt Purcell, currently living

in Dubai, and they hatched the

plan to start making the caps.

Five months ago they

launched, with a manufacturer

in Auckland creating the highquality

five-panel caps in

limited edition drops.

The Offcut site is updated

every three to five weeks with

a fresh batch of one-off styles,

which is a real point of difference,

Mr Taylor said.

“You don’t want to be

walking down the street and

someone else is rocking the

same cap. That’s not cool for

anyone.”

The majority of sales are

online, with stockists also in

Auckland and Christchurch

(The Collective at The Colombo

and Encompass at The

Tannery).

And now they’re focusing

on more of an international

market, Mr Taylor said.

“We’ve got interest in the

United Kingdom, Sweden and

the United States – which is the

big one for us.”

And the environmental

conscience goes past the use

of fabric offcuts. Every time

you buy a cap, a tree is planted

through Trees for the Future.

It is part of Mr Taylor’s ongoing

commitment to the environment.

His mother drilled it into

him as a kid and he’s lived it

ever since, he said.

“We need to really appreciate

our resources for what they

are.”

Offcut Caps. ​

LANDSCAPING YOUR LAND

A new home’s outdoors is a blank canvas

providing scope to create your dream garden.

While budget may determine what can be done

it need not limit imagination or good preparation

leading to an attractive manageable garden

especially with the help of landscaping

professionals like Greenscapes.

“Ground preparation is crucial for a healthy lawn

and weed-free garden, the difference between

a garden that barely exists on bony land and

one that flourishes,” says Craig Thomas, owner

of Greenscapes who has 27 years’ experience

in the industry.

As a member of Landscape Industries Association

of New Zealand (L.I.A.N.Z.), Greenscapes covers

the complete

spectrum of

landscaping from

site works to the final

garden.

This includes:

soil preparation;

irrigation; design;

plant advice,

selection and

planting; laying

lawns (with hydrolawn,

ready

lawn or seed);

supplying plants;

and preparation of concept

plans for approval by sub-division

developers which Craig says need

not be an expensive exercise.

The team at Greenscapes includes

Tim Mauger who is hard landscape

project manager, eight skilled

landscapers and office

manager Kay Emson

who has been with the

company for 12 years.

Tim, who has around

30 years’ experience in

construction, oversees

all hard landscaping

including paving,

decks, pergolas, raised

gardens and fencing.

Greenscapes also works closely with their

professional landscape designer who notches

up 20 years in the business. He will meet clients

on-site and provide a partial or full landscape

design.

Craig also has a loyal connection with his

suppliers including: The Irrigation Warehouse

who design and supply quality parts; landscape

suppliers Gardenmakers Landscape Supplies;

and Andrew McKay from Hydrolawn who Craig

has worked with since beginning Greenscapes

15 years ago. This is a massive combined level

of landscaping expertise which might

explain why so much of Greenscapes’

work is repeat business or referrals.

Greenscape are professionals. They

can take care of any project from

one hour maintenance jobs to

$350,000 commercial developments

with the same attention to detail, so why not

Protea is the king of colour

Dylan Norfield looks

at protea and the

importance of pruning

If you ever wanted a flower to stand

out in the crowd then the protea is the

flower for you.

The Latin name is equally grand,

being named after the Greek God

Proteus, who was known to change

his form at will, and chosen for the

genus due to the wide variety of

forms it and its larger family can take.

Protea has also been adopted as

the common name, unless you are

in South Africa, where they are

known as the ‘sugar bushes’ or in

native Afrikaans: suikerbos. It really

is the royalty of the plant kingdom,

with some species surprisingly easy

to grow and a must for the flower

arrangement.

However, protea do require some

specific soil, light and environmental

conditions to thrive. The key to

growing most species is avoiding wet

roots.

This is the principle reason behind

many failures. The fleshy roots are

susceptible to root rot and so plants

will yellow and go downhill rapidly.

With this in mind, add plenty of

drainage – in the form of grit and

sand – to the soil when planting, and,

if necessary, raise the planting area

up above the surrounding level to

increase water runoff.

Another key to survival is to find

the most open and windy spot in

the garden as they love plenty of air

movement around the foliage, making

them ideal for coastal gardens.

Because they are such a prized

plant in the garden and also not fast

growing, when they look healthy it

can feel like a real accomplishment.

After a couple of years getting

them established, proteas will need

regular pruning to keep the plant

dense and garden-worthy. The

alternative is they begin to look too

leggy, and lose all the lower foliage.

The easiest way of combatting this

is to cut flowers for the vase each

year, giving you a wonderful display

inside while also keeping your plant

reduced. Do not just break off the

old flower buds, however, as this will

simply cause new shoots to appear

behind the old flower, eventually

making a straggly plant.

Pruning

1. Cut flower stems back when

ready for the vase, leaving 10cm of

healthy leaves on this year’s stem

underneath your cut.

(Alternatively, cut stems back

immediately after flowers are spent,

again to 10cm of healthy leaves.)

2. Leave any shoots that have not

flowered as these are next year’s

potential buds.

3. Remove any weak stems close

to the ground as these will produce

inferior flowers and use up vital plant

energy.

4. Any longer shoots can be cut to

shape up the plant, but remember the

loss of next year’s flowers.

5. Never remove more than 30 per

cent of all the foliage on a bush as this

will have a very detrimental effect on

the plant’s strength.

This method of pruning is a general

rule for all species of protea, but

some species can be pruned harder.

This will require some research on

the species and a classic example

of this is the king protea, Protea

cynaroides.

As it comes from an area of South

Africa that experiences fires it has

evolved to have what is called a ligno

tuber under the ground. This, in

effect, is a fat root that stores energy

for the plant and has the potential to

shoot away if all the foliage is lost, as

in a fire.

This gives us a great advantage

when pruning as it shoots away

regularly from the base keeping

foliage to the ground throughout its

life.

BOLD: Protea aristata is only found naturally on a 60km

stretch of the Swartberg mountains, in South Africa. Above

left: Protea roupelliae is one of the most adaptable species

for the garden Above right: Protea cynaroides is commonly

known as the king protea, having the largest flowers in the

genus.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

Can you tell me if my Magnolia tree is sick or not? It is in flower

now large deep red flowers but they don’t open right up and fall

off, it’s a lovely tree and has only been in for three years and I

thought perhaps the mild weather we are experiencing may be a

factor? Does it need feeding or anything else? I don’t want to lose it

and will do anything to save it!

Magnolias flower in the spring

Answer: (Magnolia grandiflora) which is

ever green and has large white

flowers. As the plant you have has large deep red flowers it tells

us that it is a spring flowering type also. It may flower during

the summer, but not as many, and they are prone to fall off

if the plant suffers any stress - especially during hot and dry

conditions. With our weather being unusually warm and dry, this

may be the main factor. These plants can

take several years to get well established

and become reliable flowerers. We would

suggest that the plant be given a potash

fertiliser in August and then apply some of

our Organic Compost around the drip line

before next summer. Make sure you water

well after applying the fertiliser. If you don’t

see any improvement in the next year or so,

let us know and we can have another look

at what is wrong.

GARAGE DOORS ARE A KEY

TO GOOD INSULATION

SELWYN TIMES

We insulate our homes, install double glazing and look for efficient ways to

heat our home yet we often forget about the garage door.

GaraGes that are attached to a

house can be a place where heat loss

occurs even when the door is kept shut.

as most garage doors are not insulated,

heat will escape through them and cold

air will make its way into the house.

When shielding a home from the cold,

it therefore makes sense not to stop at the

garage door especially when this can be

insulated too.

Insulating a garage door may raise the

temperature in an unheated garage by up

to 20 degrees even on cold days, making

it a nicer place to tinker in. It will also

help any home appliances like a freezer

that are located in the garage, to run more

efficiently. The life of car batteries will be

prolonged too and the car itself warmer to

hop into it on cold wintry mornings.

When the weather is hot, an insulated

garage door will be of benefit as this will

help keep the garage cooler.

Local garage door manufacturer

Custom Made Garage Doors produces a

wide range of garage doors to suit most

house designs, tastes and needs.

“We produce a range of garage door

designs that are available insulated. We

can also insulate an existing door for

a customer on site,” advises Malcolm

hurrell, founder of Custom Made Garage

Doors.

Malcolm says that insulated garage

doors are generally quieter in their

operation and as Custom Made Garage

Doors only use Merlin garage door

openers that are known for their quiet

operation, the benefits are immense.

Whether it is a flat panel, negative

detail, glass, acrylic, Cedar, flush mounted

or plywood door, this company can tailor

make a door that is fit for purpose and

will match the look of a home. They even

make roller and tilt doors for customers as

well as gates to match garage doors.

all doors produced by Custom Made

are designed and tailor made to fit the

specific measurements for a home even

when architecturally designed. The team

will visit a customer on-site to provide

a free measure and quote, for new and

refurbished garage doors.

Whether you would like to look into

having your garage door insulated or you

need a new garage door, it is worth having

a look at Custom Made Garage Doors’

website at www.custommade.co.nz/.

EFFICIENT AND COST EFFECTIVE

HOME HEATING

heatING a home can account for a third

of a household’s energy costs depending

on the age, style and insulation level of the

house along with how rooms are used.

an insulated, double glazed home

will be easier to heat due to less energy

escaping, while a house built for the sun

capitalises on free heat.

homes should be a comfortable healthy

temperature, not chilly or so hot that only

a t-shirt need be worn in the middle of

winter. Overheating the home is simply an

unnecessary expense.

heating sources include electricity, gas,

solar, and pellet or log fires with each

varying in heat and cost efficiency.

Permitted and reasonably popular

in selwyn are log fires. These can be

economical when there is a good supply of

free or cheap dry wood. They are cosy to

sit by though their emissions impact on air

quality and the environment as does coal,

gas and oil.

an alternative is a heat pump and

Consumer NZ found these the most

economical form of home heating. In

contrast, un-flued gas heaters were the

most expensive to operate while natural

gas central heating was more affordable

than LPG.

Underfloor heating is nice to walk on

though some find their feet get too hot. It

uses electric cables or a hydronic system

heated by electricity, gas, solar power,

or heat pump water-filled pipes that are

effective with a well-insulated floor. There

is however, the potential for fluid in the

pipes to freeze, if the system is turned off

during cold weather.

heating up a concrete floor uses lots

of energy and it takes time to get up to

temperature. The rooms may also become

uncomfortably hot on warm days, leading

to windows being opened which wastes

energy dollars. If people are home during

the day then underfloor heating can be

heating sources include

electricity, gas, solar, and

pellet or log fires with

each varying in heat and

cost efficiency.

worthwhile providing a low safe radiant

heat.

any central heating system needs to

be temperature controlled and able to be

channelled to any part of the home. Piped

or ducted central heating uses a variety

of energy sources moving heat generated

in one area such as from a log burner, to

other rooms in the house.

solar central heating draws on the sun.

Water heats up as it flows through hoses

on the roof then into radiators in the

house however with little opportunity

to store solar power at present back-up

heating may be needed for those dull days

and weeks.

standalone and wall mounted heaters

are also useful. They provide instant heat

and take the chill off a room. Fan heaters

warm the air whereas radiant heaters

warm objects in the room so the heat

stays longer. Wall mounted panel and oil

column heaters usually have timers and

thermostats so while more expensive to

run, can be regulated to operate more

efficiently and may be a safer option where

there are children.

With any form of heating, a ceiling fan

can help circulate warm air and push heat

down from the ceiling.

LEADING THE WAY

IN LIGHTING

Incandescent light bulbs are

almost a thing of the past.

SELWYN TIMES

INItIaLLY these were substituted

with spiral shaped compact fluorescent

lamps and halogen lighting became more

common. Now LeD lighting has stepped

up, offering brighter light, energy savings

and lasting longer, making them more

environmentally friendly by reducing

New Zealand’s energy requirements.

Incandescent and halogen bulbs heat

up and this excess heating wastes power,

whereas LeD fittings do not warm up

so use up to 80% less electricity than a

conventional bulb.

Greg horton from a electrical

recommends LeD lighting, due to its

efficiency as a form of lighting compared

to incandescent lighting, which requires

approximately eight times the wattage to

produce the same amount of light.

“LeD lighting is extremely effective

though the initial outlay is much greater.

It’s the old adage of what you pay for is

what you get,” says Greg. “You’re unlikely

to need to change an LeD light for quite a

number of years due to the time they last.”

This makes LeDs an ideal choice

especially for out of the way and difficult

places to reach such as lights in high

ceilings.

Greg says that while LeD lighting can

add $500-$1,500 to the cost of an average

house build, it is future focussed, uses less

power and lasts up to twenty years longer

if quality LeD lights are fitted. he says

cheaper LeD bulbs generally fade over

time.

“It’s to do with the way they’re

manufactured and how the luminescent is

moulded together,” explains Greg.

The long-term savings and likelihood

that the price will decrease over time as

happens with new technology, makes

quality LeD lighting a practical choice.

There are other benefits too. With high

quality ICF LeD light fittings, pink batt

insulation can be closed and butted to

sit right beside and over the top of the

LeD. This was not the case before LeDs.

With standard downlights, the batts had

to be cut away from the light as the older

style lights heated up making them a fire

hazard.

With the batts going right over the high

quality LeD light it helps retain heat in

the home. The batts will still need to be

cut around lesser quality LeDs so talk to

your builder or electrician about this. The

building inspector will also be checking

this.

LeDs come in all shapes and sizes

so it is easy to replace existing bulbs.

a ‘replacement LeD’ bulb should be

purchased, and with existing downlights

it is better to replace the whole fitting as

only replacing the LeD bulb could cause

it to heat, which will reduce its life.

With non-recessed lights, a retrofitting

LeD bulb may be an affordable replacement

option and with dimmers, dimmable LeD

bulbs are needed.

LeD lighting is also becoming popular

for motorhomes, caravans and boats

as LeDs run effectively off a 12 volt

house battery due to their low power

consumption.

IT’S LAWN CARE TIME

Grass that dies off in summer will come back

Fertilise for lush green grass

aUtUMN Is a good time to carry out a

bit of lawn maintenance so it is soft and

weed free.

Lawn care begins with irrigation and

the weather will influence how often the

sprinkler needs to be turned on. During

hot dry summers it is natural for grass to

die back. It does come back again with

rain or some irrigation so no need to fret

if restrictions limit lawn watering.

having a lush green lawn is more

challenging in a dryer climate and an

automated watering system comes into

its own as it is timed to operate early

morning or later at night. Now is a good

time to carry out a little maintenance to

ensure a system’s smooth operation or to

have one installed.

From time to time, the lawn will need

to be sprayed to rid it of unwanted weeds

while applying lawn fertiliser will also

nourish it and leave lush deep green

grass.

More long term, lawn care should

involve scarification or de-thatching.

This is necessary even if a catcher is used

with the lawn mower, as cut dead grass

mats and over time causes a thatched

effect in the lawn. scarification is a

process of scraping the lawn to take out

the dead material.

scarification should be carried out in

warm good growing weather enabling

the lawn a chance to recover so is best

undertaken before the weather cools any

further.

For best results, any moss in the lawn

should be killed at least a week before

scarifying to avoid spores spreading over

a wider area.

Cutting the lawn a week before

scarification will also aid the dethatching

process, as will having it moist

however, the lawn should not be too wet

as this can cause roots to be dragged out

during the operation so water a few days

beforehand.

scarifying can be done with an

ordinary, fanned or electric garden

rake with the debris deposited into

the compost bin or used as garden

mulch. With larger lawns, this can be

arduous and time-consuming and using

a scarifying machine could be a better

option. These machines vary in size from

that equivalent to a home lawnmower

to larger machines bringing with them a

professional to do the job for you.

scarification does leave the lawn

looking a little sad afterwards. It will

revive and be stronger and healthier

reducing the potential for disease and

pests in the lawn. help it along by

tossing some lawn seed over the lawn

and over bald patches, for a denser

richer result.

Looking after the lawn makes it more

attractive, nicer to walk on and one that

children can run around on without

prickles penetrating their delicate feet.

Lawns need de-thatching from time to time

ELIMINATE SPOUTING TROUBLES

aUtUMN Is now in full swing with

attractive scenes of bronze tinted trees and

leaves on the ground; leaves that require

sweeping up and that clog the spouting.

Leaves in guttering can cause blockages

leading to rainwater overflowing and

potentially damaging the internal structure

of a home. Damp leaves are also acidic and

can erode spouting so it is important to

keep it clear; a job that is laborious while

climbing ladders is hazardous.

In winter, the guttering may get

damaged when weighty snow slides off

the roof, buckling spouting, something

that may occur even when snow straps are

fitted.

spouting protection products can help

overcome these problems especially

systems such as Gutter Guard which does

not become brittle and break down from

the effect of sunlight as does plastic. Gutter

Guard is also strong enough to carry snow

so there is no need for snow straps.

“Gutter Guard is fitted with a louvre,

like a cheese grater that results in debris

and leaves sliding over it rather than being

caught inside the spouting as can happen

with coverings such as chicken wire, which

might be fitted to stop birds but might

also trap rubbish as well as rust over time,”

explains rohan rudd owner of Gum Leaf.

Gum Leaf Gutter Guard solves the

problem of birds, leaves and snow, keeps

rubbish out and is an ideal enhancement

where rain water is collected from the

roof for storage or irrigation purposes by

ensuring higher water quality.

Clogged gutterings may damage to a home

“everything slides right over Gutter

Guard so things don’t get caught in the

covering,” advises rohan.

This high quality and durable product is

made from coloursteel. It is patented and

has been on the market for over 20 years.

Gutter Guard is colour matched to the

roof of a house (both steel and screws). It

blends with the roof of a house so is not

noticeable.

“a customer with an attractive home in

Kirwee didn’t want anything that could be

seen. I pointed to his neighbour’s house

and said we’d fitted Gutter Guard on that.

STOP LEAVES

birds, snow, hail & vermin from

blocking up your spouting

he was really surprised as he’d never

noticed it,” says rohan.

Gum Leaf is the only firm that installs

Gutter Guard and they are experts. They

do a professional job no matter what

the roof type whether a house, school,

commercial or industrial building.

They have their own scaffolding working

two metres above the ground and not

from the roof which also means there is no

damage to the garden.

For more information you can contact

rohan at any time, six days a week. he can

usually be there within a day to provide

a free, no obligation quote and his team

can normally be on the job within 7-10

days and will travel anywhere between

Kaikoura and Oamaru to install this

amazing product which takes a day for an

average house and two days for a larger

home.

SELWYN TIMES

Mercedes-Benz A-Class with oomph

I remember well when

Mercedes-Benz first launched

the A-Class away back it

1997, it was deemed to be an

affordable footstep into the

luxury car brand.

I drove the A-Class at that

time and suggested it was a bit

of a departure for Mercedes-

Benz, but it was certainly a

funky, trendy model which

would suit those whose budget

wouldn’t stretch to something

more grandiose.

Over the ensuing years the

A-Class has grown into something

far more complex as a

series, and its price has crept

up to a point where it must be

considered an integral part of

Mercedes-Benz’s psyche.

The test car this evaluation

focuses on is the A250 Sport, as

its nomenclature suggests, it is a

bit of a rip-snorter, far removed

from the ideology of the first

A-Class. In fact, I describe the

A250 Sport as an A-Class on

steroids.

It’s not so much the exterior

dimensions that have grown,

the 250 is still quite compact at

just 4.4m, but under the bonnet

sits a 2-litre, turbocharged, fourcylinder

engine which pumps

out an impressive 160kW and

350Nm, both outputs achieved

in accessible parts of the rev

band at 5500rpm and 1200rpm

respectively.

The 1991cc unit is not unfamiliar

to me, it has sat in many

of the Mercedes-Benz models

I’ve driven in the last couple

of years, and if you take into

account the body shell of the

A250 is a lot lighter than in

other models at 1445kg, the

result is a high power-to-weight

ratio and swift performance.

Take, for example, a 7.2sec

standstill to 100kmh time along

with a 224km/h top speed. By

my stopwatch the A250 will also

haul to 120km/h from 80km/h in

5sec which all combine to easily

place it in the performance car

category.

As quick as it is in a straight

line, the A250 also handles

like a hot hatchback should. It

rides on huge sport specification

Continental tyres (235/35

x 19in), by the sheer nature of

their profile they are there to

promote grip when pushed hard

into a corner.

I took the test car on part

of the Scenic Route – State

Highway 72 into the Rakaia

MERCEDES-BENZ A250: Performance hatchback.

Gorge bypassing Methven on

my return to the city. It was a

good run for the A250, it relished

the challenge of those

tricky gorge corners both up and

downhill.

Grip is phenomenal and body

balance is well maintained. The

A250’s suspension is a fully

independent set-up, and it carries

drive to all four wheels courtesy

of Mercedes-Benz’s 4Matic system.

Prestige cars have this way

of exuding feel through the chassis

and you can actually feel grip

from the rear when blasting out

of a corner. I’m not saying the

A250 needs four-wheel-drive to

retain composure, but what I am

saying is that it is nice feel when

you get that sensation of drive

from the rear.

The spring and damper rates

are such that ride comfort has

been given priority, but that

doesn’t negate the A250’s composure

in a corner, body movement

doesn’t override the quality

of the suspension, and with

so much grip on offer there’s

never a point where you feel

you aren’t in control.

Because the A250’s engine

isn’t working overly hard most

of the time, and with its light

weight, there are constantly

respectable fuel usage returns on

offer.

During my long highway test

the engine was sipping fuel at

the rate of seven-litre per 100km

(40mpg) at a constant 100km/h,

the engine spinning slowly at

Performance: 0-100km/h,

just 1600rpm at that speed.

That resulted in an 8.6l/100km

(33mpg) average when I took

the car back to the dealership,

those figures correlated

well with Mercedes-Benz’s

6.7l/100km (42mpg) combined

cycle claim.

The A250 Sport lands here at

$67,900, bearing in mind that

other A-Class models list from

$48,600.

I knew I was going to enjoy

my time in the A250 Sport. Not

only was it good to be reacquainted

with the A-Class after

all those years, but I enjoyed its

sophistication, it has grown into

a performance car which easily

competes with other European

hot hatchbacks. But if that’s not

what you want, there are other

models which still relate to the

ideology of the original, or with

even higher performance, such

as the A45.

DEALER FINANCE LIMITED

Dealer Finance Limited and the Commerce Commission have entered into a settlement agreement relating to

overcharged interest on loans. This resulted from Dealer Finance not crediting part repayments made by borrowers

against the unpaid balance of the loan as soon as practicable, and as a consequence, overcharging interest to the

borrower.

If you purchased a vehicle through one of the car dealers listed below between April 2005 and April 2015, which was

financed through Dealer Finance, you may be entitled to a refund of any overcharged interest, together with a 5%

uplift payment.

Dealer Finance has recently sent notification to all affected clients by mail. If you have not received this notification

please contact Dealer Finance by email on enquiries@dfl.co.nz to find out whether you are entitled to a refund.

Please include your full name, current and previous addresses, and if known, the car dealer you purchased your car

through and the vehicle registration number.

PLEASE NOTE - NO contact is required from you:

family about,” explains Lance eccles from

hallmark’s marketing team.

The concept ideas were first developed

by esther Bonne who along with husband

mike, are owner Directors of hallmark

homes. They sat down with architect Peter

Dunbar with the end result ‘The Nevis’, an

attractive 240 square metre home.

“we’ve used the home as a ‘showcase of

ideas’ with the specification sitting in the

middle to upper end of the market,”

adds Lance.

The design is ideal for east west siting to

soak up the sun, making it extremely energy

efficient with a solar PVC system and full

home automation.

“Imagine arriving home on a cold winter’s

night to a warm house, the heating and

lights having been remotely switched on via

your cell phone,” suggests Lance who adds

that this system is also great for security.

The living room has a five metre cathedral

ceiling with gable windows while the family

kitchen and dining areas sit at 3.4 metres.

This gives a spacious feeling and allows

higher windows for more sunlight, warmth

and lower energy costs.

“when I walk into ‘The Nevis’, the sun

is streaming in and the house is naturally

warm even when there’s been no heating on

and it’s a cold morning,” adds Lance.

From outside, this house is set apart by

the featured cedar cladding, along with the

schist stone chimney.

Indoors, the spaciousness continues

with the family, dining and kitchen

areas. The latter reflects overseas trends

where food preparation and washing up

are undertaken in a large scullery that

includes sink and appliances, leaving a

classy kitchen with granite benchtops

making it the heartbeat for the family and

a place for entertaining.

From the living room, double stacking

sliders lead to a covered all weather

outdoor area. here a Vergola remote

controlled louvered system lets light in and

shuts out the rain.

Sliders also lead out from the lounge

which is internally separated from the

living spaces by feature double doors. This

magnificent room has seagrass wallpaper

and a built-in sound system.

All four bedrooms are capacious. The

master has a fully tiled roomy ensuite with

walk-in shower, double vanities and a

skylight providing natural light. The main

bathroom also has a walk-in shower along

with a free standing bath giving a feeling of

opulence.

Hallmark has gone the extra mile

with this stunning home making it

worth viewing which is possible 11am-

4pm, Wednesdays to Sundays (or by

arrangement) at 49 Vernon Drive in

Lincoln’s Te Whāriki sub-division.
