New Rolleston focus

in sex worker murder

• By Andrew King and

Caitlin Miles

SELWYN RESIDENTS could

hold the key to helping police

determine whether a car central

to the Renee Duckmanton

homicide case was in Rolleston.

Police are asking for anyone

with information about a silver

1997 Audi in the Rolleston

area on May 15 to contact

them.

Detective Inspector Darryl

Sweeney released details about

the car to the Selwyn Times on

Friday but declined to comment

further.

Police believe the vehicle may

have been in and around the

Izone business park around

Jones Rd and Hoskyns Rd area.

A male, on foot, may have

been observed by a member

of the public from 6-8am in

that area heading towards the

BP Connect Rolleston on State

Highway 1.

A silver Audi was removed

from a Blankney St address in

Hornby on Thursday by police

as part of their inquiries into the

homicide.

A 31-year-old a butcher from

Ilam appeared in court charged

with murdering the sex worker

on Friday.

Judge Gary MacAskill granted

the man name suppression

and remanded him in custody

without plea to the High Court

on June 10.

Police would also like to speak

to the occupants of a lightcoloured

motor vehicle sighted

on Main Rakaia Rd, Rakaia,

about 7.40pm on May 15.

The vehicle may also have

been in Leeston about 7.50pm.

seen alive in the Christchurch

red light district, near the intersection

of Manchester St and

Peterborough St, about 9pm on

May 14.

Detective Inspector Sweeney

said CIB and forensic specialists

had seized a number of motor

vehicles across Christchurch and

had begun detailed examinations

of those, as well as four

residential addresses.

Anyone who may

have information or a

positive sighting are

being asked to phone

More

rooms

for

schools

LINCOLN HIGH School and

Lincoln Primary School are about

to gain some much needed new

classrooms.

Yesterday, Associate Education

Minister Nikki Kaye announced

funding for nine new classrooms

for the primary school and six for

the high school.

The new classrooms are expected

to be completed by early 2017.

Lincoln High deputy principal

Stephen Rout said the growing

roll meant the classrooms were

well timed.

“Our school has grown really

quickly, we’re at about 1700

students now, so we really had no

spare space,” he said.

Lincoln Primary School principal

Viv Butcher said the school

was delighted at the announcement.

“It is reassuring to our parent

community too that we will have

brand new teaching spaces for the

kids,” Mrs Butcher said.

The school already has five

modular buildings under construction

to house the growing

number of pupils.

THe school is teaching some

of its pupils in its library, hall

and on the former Environment

Canterbury premises on Edward

St as a temporary measure while

the classrooms are completed.

SCHOOL’S NEW LOGO POINTS IN RIGHT DIRECTION

NEWS12

ROLLESTON HIGH School unveiled the

school logo at an information evening

recently.

The name of the new logo Horeaka

Haemata, was gifted to the college by Te

Taumutu Rūnanga, Ngāi Tahu.

It means flourishing lancewood.

The logo has been designed to capture

the idea of the abstract lancewood shape.

The arrowheads form an idea of direction

and movement through school and

school life.

The logo references the three main ideas

of the school vision, self, community and

future.

The school also received their first

enrolment last week, Rolleston High

School principal Steve Saville said the

team may have been “a little over excited”

by the enrolment.

Lyttelton comes to Rolleston

• By Emma-Jane McLennan

A NEW multi-million dollar

freight hub is opening in

Rolleston this week, extending

the Lyttelton Port Company’s

services using rail.

LPC’s new inland port, called

MidlandPort, will have on train

per day bring moving containers

between the Lyttelton port and

the new hub in Rolleston - connecting

freight throughout the

South Island.

Located on

Jones Rd, running

parallel

to Main South

Rd and linked

directly with rail

tracks, the port

is an innovative

way to keep up with Canterbury’s

growth, inland port manager

Sean Bradley (above) said.

“We see a large amount

of growth happening in

Canterbury at the moment,

particularly volume through

the port and the surrounding

Canterbury region, so we have

a port located in Rolleston to

assist with handling that volume

and reducing traffic congestion

through Brougham St.”

The inland port will handle a

train load of freight every day,

carrying 20 containers on a

40-minute trip, taking between

40-80 trucks off the road.

There has been extensive work

to minimise noise and light disruption

to nearby residents.

Stages one and two of the

development - on a 27ha site -

are due to open by the end of the

week, Mr Bradley said.

“It’s a one-stop shop. We offer

full container storage for both

dry containers as well as refrigerated

containers and we also

service empty containers here so

we have container wash facilities

for MPI washers and also internal

washers we have container

surveying and container repair

equipment as well.”

A warehousing facility called

I PORT will be built adjacent

to the site, so importers and

exporters can deal directly with

the port.

Further stages surrounding

the area are earmarked for

future development, with stage

three likely in the near future,

and four and five part of a longterm

plan.

The port will be a “very

positive” part of Canterbury’s

rebuild, Mr Bradley said.

“I think the economy is continuing

to grow in Christchurch

- having these types of facilities

that have had a significant

amount of investment, we’re really

keen to continue to be a part

of that growth.”

OPENING: The

new MidlandPort

in Rolleston, due

to open by the

end of the week. ​

PLANS: A concept image

Rolleston could look like

Blood testing

lost after

high demand

• By Caitlin Miles

LINCOLN MEDICAL Centre

could not cope with the patient

demand put on them by hosting

additional blood services.

Last month the medical centre

discontinued the arrangement

with Southern Communities Laboratories

which provide blood test

services to the Selwyn area.

Centre directors doctors David

Finlay and Denis Dumaine said

“increasing patient demand for the

blood testing service has caused

congestion and long waiting times.

This has resulted in a growing

number of patient complaints.”

The medical centre is currently

undergoing earthquake repairs and

refurbishments, but they said “it

will not be sufficient to cope with

the requirements of the Southern

Community Laboratory collection

service”.

SCL chief executive Peter

Gootjes said the medical centre

only gave them two weeks notice to

leave the building.

Dr Finlay and Dr Dumaine said

it was mutually agreed that the

blood testing service could not

continue from the medical centre

and notice was given prior to

building work starting.

Selwyn’s young people

seizing opportunities

LAST WEEK I was thrilled to

learn that the Selwyn Youth

Council had received an award

in the Youth Group category of

the 2016 Youth Awards, which

were presented at Parliament on

May 24.

I understand that since the

formation of the Youth Council

in 2013, the council has collectively

contributed over 2000

hours of voluntary service to

projects which benefit Selwyn.

It is great to see the council

involved in running events

such as skate jams, roller discos,

drive-in movies and youth markets

designed for young people

in our district. I am especially

impressed by the youth council’s

“pop up café” initiative,

which has given local young

people valuable new skills.

Another good news story for

local young people is the Government’s

announcement in last

week’s Budget of an additional

investment in apprenticeship

training. The Government is

allocating $14.4 million over

four years to enable the training

of another 5500 apprentices

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

nationwide by 2020.

This means extra opportunities

for young people looking to

get into a trade and more skilled

workers to help local employers

grow their businesses.

This new funding will help

meet projected skill shortages

in high-demand industries like

construction and infrastructure.

We have seen the importance

of this locally with the building

boom in Selwyn and the

demands for skilled workers for

the Christchurch rebuild.

Increased apprenticeship

numbers will help fill skill gaps

and provide the new people

coming through to maintain future

growth in these industries.

Last year, new apprenticeships

in trades such as carpentry,

plumbing, and electrical engineering

reached the highest levels

recorded in nearly a decade.

There were more than 42,000

people enrolled in apprenticeships

and apprenticeship training

nationwide in 2015.

The Government recognises

that tertiary education is a passport

to higher skills, higher

wages, higher productivity, and

higher growth for our economy.

This is why we are committed

to improving tertiary education,

lifting achievement, and

focusing on better outcomes for

students and taxpayers.

The Government’s aim is

to help people not only into

employment but into rewarding

lifelong careers. I am sure that

many young people in Selwyn

will take this on board and seize

the opportunities available to

them just as the award-winning

Selwyn Youth Council has done.

Reader responds to article

on freedom campers in

Coes Ford.

Sandi Newbigging - Sheffield:

I enjoyed your article on

freedom campers. It’s such a big

issue at the moment and I agree

that it’s important that they have

access to water and facilties for

health reasons. Support from

central government would be a

good thing. Freedom camping

is such a draw for a beautiful

country like New Zealand but

it can cause bad feeling when

abused by a few. It’s nice to see it

highlighted in a local paper.

Tree roots new threat to

quake-cracked pipes

• By Tom Doudney

HOMEOWNERS MAY be in

for more earthquake-related

pain with tree roots the culprit

this time.

The roots have found their way

into small cracks in earthquakedamaged

drainage pipes, blocking

them as they grow.

An EQC spokesman said the

problem had been expected to

crop up between five and seven

years following the earthquakes,

based on expert advice.

Homeowners have a “grace

period” until

December

31 when any

failure of lateral

pipes consistent

with earthquake

damage would

be treated as

such by EQC

with no further inspection.

However, claims made after

this time would face a higher

burden of proof that the damage

was earthquake-related.

G N Brewer Drainlayers Ltd

co-owner Deane Brewer (above)

said now that tree roots had had

time to grow into the drains, the

problem was becoming more

evident.

“It only takes a tiny little fibre

getting in, it doesn’t take a huge

amount. Once that is in it just feeds

on the nutrients and goes berserk

and you can’t really stop it without

repairing the pipe,” he said.

The company had two or three

drainage crews working on

repairing the problem each day

and was about six weeks behind

on camera inspections due to

the volume of requests coming

in – about 15 to 20 a day.

“Often the drains are under a

driveway and we are getting a lot

now where the driveways have

been replaced but then the roots

are getting in [to the drains] and we

are having to take up the driveway

that has already been replaced.”

The problem is also hitting the

city council’s wastewater pipes. Infiltration

by tree roots had always

been a problem for the network

but head of three waters and waste

John Mackie said it had been

made worse by the earthquakes

creating more cracks.

The city council was now

putting more emphasis on root

control and monitoring, which it

had to fund itself.

“The cost of root control this

year is around $125,000 and

this is likely to increase in the

near future as other methods

of control are considered such

as chemical treatment or root

foaming,” Mr Mackie said.

•Quake experiences needed,

THE ENGINEER charged in

relation to a serious bus crash

near Arthur’s Pass on New Year’s

Eve is James Henry Coakley.

The bus belonged to Lincoln

company Travlon and police have

alleged its brakes failed.

It was carrying a tour party

of 31 Chinese tourists when the

driver lost control and collided

with a car travelling up the Otira

Gorge before overturning and

sliding into roadside barriers

separating it from a ravine below.

Coakley, 68, of Ohoka, was

associated with maintenance of

the bus and has been charged

with Injuring by Unlawful Act.

He has been granted bail and

will appear in the Christchurch

District Court on June 20.

Thirteen of the bus passengers

suffered serious injuries requiring

hospitalisation and surgery,

including fractures and internal

injuries.

The car passengers involved, a

visiting Swiss family of three, also

sustained moderate to serious

injuries.

and she always knew that when

we were heading out I had a

good group of people around

me.

What’s the hardest part of

being a firefighter in a small

community?

In a community like Southbridge

everyone knows everyone,

if you go to a decent crash or a

house fire where there is property

loss there’s a good chance

someone in the crew is going to

know the person involved. You

go through that heartbreak of

knowing what they have lost or

potentially working on someone

in a car crash that you’ll know.

It’s not so much what happens

at the job it’s what happens

after.

Having the best to

ensure great service

When you need to rely on your outboard motor to get you home after

a great day’s fishing or boating, it is essential to have had it serviced by

the best people available in the business.

The team at Butler Marine has been servicing outboard motors in

their current business since 1987, and, even before that, boating and

motors were in their blood.

Owner John Butler says, “We have a hands-on approach to most

problems our customer can have. If we cannot fix it we will arrange

to have it fixed.”

Butler Marine will service Suzuki, Yamaha, Mercury, Parsun, Mariner,

Johnson, Evinrude, Honda and Tohatsu outboard motors.

“We carry a wide range of parts, and what we don’t have we can

generally get overnight. We also have access to a range of second

hand parts to help keep costs down,” John says. “We are agents for

Suzuki outboard motors, the world’s best four stroke motor, and

Parsun two and four stroke outboard motors.”

He adds that now is the ideal time to get your boat serviced with

Butler Marine currently offering a winter service special.

John lives in Prebbleton and provides a drop-off, pick-up service from

the village, saving Selwyn District residents the long drive across

town. Contact Butler Marine for details.

“Our friendly, accommodating staff are more than happy to assist you

with all your everyday boating needs, and you’re welcome to come in

and see Dave, Brett, Sandy or myself.”

Whether you are servicing or replacing your existing boat, thinking of

buying your first one, or looking to customise the boat you have, talk

to the people at Butler Marine.

WINTER SPECIAL

SELWYN TIMES Tuesday May 31 2016 9

the Southbridge brigade

Like if there is a fatality it

could be two weeks later when it

actually hits you. Or something

brings it back up or you start

thinking about what else you

could have done.

What was that possibility like

when you first signed up?

I guess when I started I was 16

and I thought I was bullet proof

being a volunteer firefighter,

and that was probably the worst

thing to be thinking. But there

are a lot of people out there who

might not be able to handle it,

it takes a strong amount of will

power.

How do you deal with fatalities

and bad incidents?

The New Zealand Fire Service

offer us peer support and they

can come out and talk to the

crew straight after something has

happened or talk to us personally

and ask for some help or support.

What makes you keep doing

it?

You’re in a good group of guys

and girls and getting to help out

the community is the best thing

we get out of it. It’s really cool

getting to do school visits. We

did a mini Sky Tower Challenge

with them [Southbridge School].

We set a ladder up on the ground

and the kids had to run through

it. They enjoyed it and we enjoyed

it.

Is doing things like that the

nicer side of the job?

Yeah, we go to school a couple

times a year and have a chat they

come to the fire station and we

show them around and it’s good

to have them involved as well

because they’re potentially the

future fire fighters of the community.

You’re always going to

need that support within the

community.

Just from what you were

saying about the Sky Tower

Firefighter Challenge you were

doing with the kids, how many

times have you done it?

This year is the fifth time I’ve

done it. Eight of us went up this

year, it’s the biggest team we’ve

sent up which is great because

we can give more money to the

leukaemia foundation.

What does the Sky Tower

Challenge involve?

You start in the basement of

the Auckland Sky Tower maybe

five or six floors below street

level. We are in full kit too. With

the breathing apparatus that

can weigh upwards of 10kg. You

climb and just keep focused and

keep going and then go for a well

deserved beer when you’re done.

Why do you keep going back?

It’s just a challenge, every time

you go you’re competing with

FAMILY INVOLVEMENT: Brother Hamish (left), father Wayne

and Steven have all competed in firefighting challenges as a

family.

yourself and everyone else. We

have our own wee inter brigade

competition, my big goal every

year is to try and beat my dad,

which I haven’t been able to do

yet.

You go over seas to compete

in combat challenges don’t you?

Yeah, I do. Dad, Hamish and I

have both gone over and competed

at worlds. I’ve done it three

times, dad has done it twice and

Hamish has done it once.

What does it involve?

It involves climbing up a

couple of flights of stairs, hauling

up a hose, running back down

the stairs, force-able entry while

dragging the hose and then

victim rescue. You do it in your

full gear too so you’re carrying a

bit of weight.

You were saying you are a

firefighter full-time too?

Yeah, I work at Christchurch

Airport as a firefighter.

What made you want to do

that?

I was volunteering at the time

and thought it’d be cool to get to

work full time and get paid to

do it. I thought I’d get the best of

both worlds, get to go to work

and mainly focus on the aviation

side of things and the aircraft

and then on my days off I get

to do the volunteer fire service

work.

With such a busy life firefighting

do you have time for a

relationship?

My girlfriend is a fire fighter

as well so she understands pretty

well how it all works. We both

do competition stuff so we train

together and push one another to

keep going.

Did you guys meet through

firefighting?

Yeah we did, it’s kind of funny.

She works at the airport as a firefighter

as well. We met well she

was on her basic training.

Between volunteering and

working full-time do you get

much down time?

Oh a little bit. I’m usually kept

pretty busy with the brigade. That’s

cool though, I really enjoy it.

School sets up dog club

LINCOLN HIGH School now has

a dog club.

Emily Tighe is a teacher at the

high school and she started the

dog club to offer students a chance

to learn more about dogs and pick

up some training tips.

“We are the only school to

have a dog club that is officially

sanctioned by the New Zealand

Kennel Club. It’s pretty exciting,”

Miss Tighe said.

Miss Tighe wanted to teach

children and parents about foundation

skills. This covers obedience

and body awareness towards

dogs.

“It’s really important that we

teach our young people how to

interact safely and be responsible

around animals, “ she said.

Joanna Hussey, 13, goes to the

dog club because she “likes to

learn new things” and seeing what

skills the dogs can learn.

“It’s pretty rewarding getting to

see what they can do,” she said.

The club has been operating via

an online platform and held its

first meeting earlier this month.

The club has been growing in size

and currently has 16 members.

Lincoln High School deputy

principal Stephen Rout said the

dog club is “unique” to the school.

“I think it’s fantastic that we

have a teacher here who has the

interest and skills that she wants

said.

Ella Dalley is another member

of the dog club and said it has

been a lot of fun and she is enjoying

the skills she has learned.

Miss Tighe hopes to see more

schools following in Lincoln High

Schools footsteps and start dog

clubs of their own.

“We hope other schools will

want to take on board what we are

doing and do the same. We dream

of inter-school competitions.”

Quake-damaged

properties keep

rates remission

THE DISTRICT council

has agreed to extend its rates

remission for earthquake

damaged properties.

Following the September 2010

earthquakes the district council

set up a rates remission policy for

houses that were badly damaged

and made uninhabitable as a

result from the earthquakes.

The district council adopted

the policy in October 2010 which

allowed for the majority of rates

to be waived if a dwelling was

uninhabitable following the

earthquake and no one was living

at the address.

At the council meeting last

week all of the councillors agreed

to extend the policy for another

year, until June 30, 2017.

This is the third time the

remission has been granted for

residents.

In the 2015/16 rating year to

date the Council has received and

approved 12 applications under

the criteria for a remission, with a

total cost to Council of $7,065.

The district council noted

that although numbers are low,

new applications are still being

received and extending the policy

for a further year would assist

ratepayers who continue to be

affected.

Quake experiences needed

• By Emma-Jane McLennan

QUAKE claimants’ experiences

are being surveyed for a

comprehensive report, to help

insurers better respond to future

disasters.

The survey is the only independent

one being done and it is

Michael

Naylor (left)

said.

“We’ve had

interest from

all around the

important.”

The university is currently

compiling the data and calling

for Cantabrians to complete its

survey on quake claim experiences,

Dr Naylor said.

“We’ve already got more than

The data collected from the

While there has been a lot of

responses already, the university

needs a more diverse cross-section

of homeowners to respond,

of guesses and to support

Springston School’s garden.

“I brought three or four tickets

and had a guess of what it might

be. I was flabbergasted when I

won because I never expected

to,” she said.

The school’s “secret garden” is

part of the community garden

that backs onto the school.

The Springston secret garden

as the children named it because

it is on a back section not seen

from the road, was started by

the Springston Enviro Community

Group, whose volunteers

are now working closely with

the Springston Primary School

teachers and children.

Dr Naylor said.

“We haven’t got many from

the east side commenting,

mainly because most of them

were renters. We’re also after

commercial claims, a real wide

range of people.”

Dr Naylor also said that it is

often the “angry” claimants that

complete the survey.

“The only ones you hear about

in the media are negative, and

the ones coming to us are

negative. But we’re also aware

that a number of people have

had good experiences.”

Firefighters off to Aussie

• By Caitlin Miles

ROLLESTON VOLUNTEER

Fire Brigade is heading to

Australia after winning a

national competition.

The brigade won the National

Road Crash Rescue Challenge

this month. There were 16

teams from around the country

involved.

United Fire Brigades’ Association

has held the event for nearly

10 years. It involves teams of

six, including a team leader and

medic. They have 30 minutes

to remove and treat patients

involved in simulated vehicle incidents.

They are scored on their

techniques, time and how they

deal with patients.

Team members Rob Henderson

and Hannah Simpson also

won the Trauma Challenge,

which is part of the National

Road Crash Rescue Challenge.

This is the first year the team has

won the two categories.

This is the seventh year Rolleston

Volunteer Fire Brigade has

competed in the challenge and

team leader John Trounson said

they had gone from strength to

strength.

The challenge also provides a

chance to learn more about how

to deal with different types of

road accidents, including how to

stand a horse float up with the

horse still inside after it rolled.

“Every year we learn something

new. It’s a great learning

opportunity. We get to bring the

skills back to the brigade, which

is important in an area like

Selwyn,” Mr Trounson said.

The team spends up to six

hours a week training for the

event. They have a good relationship

with car wrecker and

dismantler Pick-A-Part which

crushes certain parts of cars so

the team can practice cutting different

areas of the car up.

“We’re really lucky to have

the support from Pick-A-Part,

our families and the brigade to

be able to compete in the challenges,”

he said.

Mr Trounson said the competition

was a hard effort but was

all worth it.

The team will head to the

Australasian competition in July.

Between now and then the team

will spend a lot of their time

practising different scenarios.

Top award for Darfield homestead

THE REBUILT Homebush

homestead near Darfield

was honoured in this year’s

Canterbury Architecture Awards

held on Thursday.

The awards, announced at an

event at Hagley Oval pavilion, are

conducted by the New Zealand

Institute of Architects.

The original homestead, built

in 1851, was extensively damaged

in the September 2010 earthquake

and had to demolished.

The new building was designed

by Athfield Architects and

includes salvaged parts of the

original building.

Dennis Chippindale, this year’s

awards convener, led his jury

through 40 shortlisted projects

over eight “marathon” days of

judging.

“Five years on from the ’quakes,

these awards provide us with a

way to survey the profession, to

see how we are responding to the

challenges,” Mr Chippindale said.

Members of the jury panel

were impressed by the way the

architects used older parts of the

building in the industrial and

modern design.

“In its lush pastoral setting,

with its intuitive use of unlikely

forms and raw materials, this

romantic home delights the soul,”

the jury said.

Port internship

opportunity for

budding director

A WEST Melton resident has

been given the opportunity to

work alongside the Lyttelton

Port Company as an intern.

Karen Cameron has been

granted a director internship

with the company.

She is one of 12 people to get

an internship, which are with a

variety of companies throughout

the city.

Christchurch City Holdings

organised the positions to cope

with growing building capacity.

CCHL director Bill Dwyer

said there was an overwhelming

response when seeking interns,

but they had managed to select

12 from more than 150 applicants.

“The recipients are from a

diverse range of ethnic backgrounds,

professions and skill

sets. Being an intern director is

an opportunity for them to gain

an insight into good governance

practice and learn about the

dynamics of sitting on a board,”

Mr Dwyer said.

The appointment is for a term

of 18 months starting mid-way

through this year. The interns

will be given mentoring and a

study scholarship to do an

institute of directors course

during the internship.

“I believe this scheme will

offer worthwhile experience to

those who have been selected

and contribute to diversity

around the board table,” he said.

Christchurch City Holdings

is the infrastructure investment

arm of the city council.

It is the majority shareholder

of Orion New Zealand Ltd,

Christchurch International

Airport Ltd, Lyttelton Port

Company Ltd, Enable Services

Ltd, City Care Ltd, Red Bus Ltd,

EcoCentral Ltd and

Development Christchurch Ltd.

NEW INTERNS: Laura Meriluoto, Sina Cotter-Tait, Karen

Cameron, Analisa Elstob, Matt Russell, Melanie Lynn, Hilary

Walton, CCHL director Bill Dwyer, CCHL chairman Bruce

Sizzle in sunshine at Palm Springs

• By Mike Yardley

STEEPED IN showbiz

heritage, feted for its modernist

architecture and famed for its

indie-music festival, Coachella,

I recently had a fling with the

sizzling desert retreat of Palm

Springs.

One hundred and sixty kilometres

east of the City of Angels

and being a desert climate, by

day, it’s generally a few degrees

warmer than Los Angeles,

although it can also be starkly

chillier overnight.

Being a Christchurch boy, and

without wishing to tempt fate,

curiosity got the better of me,

so I made a date with the San

Andreas fault line.

It’s Southern California’s biggest

ticking time-bomb, increasingly

overdue to rupture. Visit

the Coachella Valley Preserve

and the signposting will guide

you to the San Andreas Fault,

where you can straddle the

North American and Pacific

Plates, marked by vertical rock

uplift and slot canyons.

Palm Springs is dramatically

backdropped by the chiselled

peaks of the San Jacinto and

Santa Rosa Mountains.

The best way to get a sense of

the wildly contrasting terrain

is to jump on-board the aerial

tramway, allegedly the world’s

largest rotating cable car, which

zips you up Mount San Jacinto.

Alighting from the cable car,

the mountain peaks and surrounding

pine forests are often

dappled in snow, while the

sprawling wilderness is invitingly

laced with scenic hiking trails.

Fifty years ago, nearly every

major American entertainer

owned a home in Palm Springs,

transforming it into a buzzing

winter playground for Hollywood

royalty. In more recent

years, the region has often been

derided as God’s waiting room

for moneyed retirees.

But Palm Springs is absolutely

back in vogue, with a whole new

generation falling in love with its

trademark mid-century architecture.

I previously had no affinity

for modernism, but I was soon

slayed by the glamtastic, Jetsonian

designs in Palm Springs.

Modernism is to Palm Springs

what art deco is to Miami Beach.

Liberace’s Spanish-style casa

in Belardo Rd is still adorned

with his trademark “L” symbol,

while Twin Palms in Alejo Rd,

the Sinatra House, is where Ol’

Blue Eyes lived and fought with

Ava Gardner. You can arrange a

private tour of the house.

Another superb mid-century

gem is the King’s Love Nest, Elvis

Presley’s honeymoon hideaway.

Located in the leafy cul-de-sac

of Ladera Circle, and officially

known as the Alexander Estate,

this mid-century modern classic

with its sprawling butterfly roof

was built in 1962.

The house has been

authentically restored and you

can book a walkthrough. www.

elvishoneymoon.com

FAST FACTS

•Wellness is big business

in Palm Springs, with many

Angelinos weekending

here to recharge with

all the frills. I stayed at

the Westin Mission Hills

that prides itself on

DISCOVER THE ARTIST IN YOU

“Everyone can learn to draw and paint,”

suggests renowned professional artist Sarah

Deans.

Sarah takes a twofold approach when

teaching art; covering the classical craft for

structure and confidence building, whilst

showing how to break the rules and think

creatively to explore the artist that a person

wants to be.

“I teach how to use one’s mind to open up

a new world using an accelerated style of

learning,” says Sarah.

Sarah’s methods which differ from traditional

art instruction are extremely effective in

helping budding artists discover their own

creative approach.

“I want them to find out who they are as an

artist so I look for the direction they’re likely

to take in their art and encourage that,”

explains Sarah.

Participants learn how to draw a self-portrait;

something that takes courage yet most can

sketch an outline of their face within two

hours and produce a refined photographic

image in around ten hours. These ‘before

and afters’ help them see their progress

over a short timeframe with most reaching

intermediate drawing level by the end of a

course.

Sarah is a member of the N Z Water Colour

Society and has taught art in Australia where

she also studied colour. This gave her an

in-depth appreciation of individual colours

beyond the craft of colour mixing.

“I teach drawing and painting, encouraging

learners to feel like artists connecting with the

sensitivity and feel of colour,” expands Sarah

who plans to hold colour mixing classes, for

adults who are already doing the ‘colouring in’

hobby.

“Colouring in is healthy being enjoyable,

relaxing, not competitive, and removed from

life’s responsibilities. I teach colour mixing so

novices can become confident to produce

artworks.”

Sarah teaches beginning, intermediate and

advanced level artists and will be running

art workshops and lessons in Tai Tapu and

Christchurch with classes beginning in June.

Fashion

Designer going the extra mile

• By Emma-Jane McLennan

WHEN EMMA Glasson was

looking for a name for her

label, she decided to go with

something that meant a lot to her

– Olessya.

On the surface, it goes perfectly

with the classic, romantic

aesthetic of the brand – but for

the designer, it is the Russian

version of her name and a reminder

of her past.

“I was actually born in Russia,

then adopted and brought up in

New Zealand. When I was 16 I

found out that my birth mother

was a seamstress – which was

crazy. Perhaps that’s where I’ve

got my artistic tendencies from,”

she said.

Miss Glasson’s past is woven

intrinsically into her clothing.

As a small child she “always

knew” she wanted to be a fashion

designer.

“When I was as young as seven

or eight I was already making

clothes and things. I would sew

or even staple fabrics together to

make garments for my teddies,”

she said.

As a child, she saw the industry

as glamorous. Remembering,

she laughs: “Now I know that its

really hard work. There are definitely

late nights and times

when you have no life, but I love

it.”

Miss Glasson studied fashion

at Massey University, but

translating that into work was

difficult, she said.

“I was working as a bartender,

which is obviously not what I

wanted to do.”

Her friend, Zara, was in the

same boat. So they put their

heads together and decided “this

was it,” she said.

“We thought, ‘why not start

our own labels?’ It was very

motivating to have a friend going

through the same things, with

DETAIL:

her at-home

studio (left) and

modelled by a

friend (above).

us both getting into the fashion

world at the same time.”

Miss Glasson took the leap and

launched her brand in March

last year.

She works out of a home studio,

and stocks stores such as The

Collective, at the Colombo.

Most of her clothing is readyto-wear,

but she does take a lot

of custom orders – such as a

wedding dress she is currently

sewing. She says it is “all about”

going the extra mile.

“It’s just little things, like I

had a customer buy a dress a

few weeks ago and she wanted it

taken in a little – I did it for her

free because it was over a certain

price point and then delivered it

to her home.”

Her customer base is steadily

growing, she’s learning about

what women want to wear and

growing her business smarts, she

said.

“It’s all about baby steps.

People think I’m too young and

naive sometimes – I’m 24 – but

you’ve just got to go for it no

matter what they think.”

Information session for

commercial building owners

Restored Prebbleton Community

Cottage available for hire

One of Selwyn’s oldest buildings has been beautifully restored and

is now available for community hire.

The cottage was recently restored by the Prebbleton Community

Cottage Committee and the Council. It was built in the 1860s and

was originally located on farmland on Birchs Road, but was later

shifted to a farm on Shands Road. In the late 1960s the farm was

purchased by Pyne Gould Guinness Limited (now PGG Wrightson).

In 2007 PGG Wrightson donated the cottage to the people of

Prebbleton. It was relocated after this to land purchased by the

Council beside All Saints Church and now sits on the corner of

Blakes and Springs Roads in Prebbleton.

The cottage is now available for public use and is suited to groups

of up to 20 people. It has a new kitchen and the toilet facilities

have been upgraded. The cottage has two side rooms which were

recently sound-proofed, and the main front room has had a heat

pump installed. Improved lighting has been installed throughout and

the building is accessible to wheelchairs. Parking is available on the

roadside and in the church carpark nearby. The cottage garden is

maintained by the Prebbleton Community Cottage Committee.

For booking enquiries phone Deb on 021 120 2143. For photos of

the cottage see ‘Prebbleton Community Cottage’ on Facebook.

A free information session for owners of commercial and public buildings is

planned for June to discuss Building Warrant of Fitness requirements and

building owners’ responsibilities.

The session is being organised by Selwyn District Council’s Building Team

and will be held at Lincoln Event Centre on Thursday 23 June from 3-5pm.

Register

for this

FREE event

A Building Warrant of Fitness is a certificate which is renewed annually and must be displayed

in the building. It is confirmation by the building owner that all of the specified systems in the

building have been inspected by an independently qualified inspector and were operating

correctly at the time the certificate was issued.

Larger commercial or public use buildings will usually have specified systems, as well as most

smaller commercial buildings. Specified systems are systems or features which need regular

inspection and maintenance to check they are operating correctly so that the building provides

a safe environment for the people using it. Specified systems can include fire alarms, sprinklers

or other fire suppression systems, lifts, automatic doors, air conditioning systems, emergency

lighting systems and a number of other items. On dairy farms, backflow preventers are a

specified system which requires regular checks.

Selwyn District Council Building Manager Ian Butler says the session will be helpful for people who

own or manage buildings with specified systems and will also be of interest to anyone considering

buying a commercial building as it will outline their responsibilities under the Building Act.

“Many of the specified systems installed in commercial or public buildings such as fire alarms,

sprinklers and emergency lighting systems have been installed as a safety measure in case

of an emergency so it is very important to the wider Selwyn community that building owners

understand and meet their obligations to maintain a current Building Warrant of Fitness,” Mr

Butler says.

There are a number of enforcement options available to the council if people don’t meet their

responsibilities to maintain a current Building Warrant of Fitness, including enforcement notices

and prosecution.

To attend this free event please register by 5pm, Tuesday 21 June online at

www.selwyn.govt.nz/register23June

Join our Volunteer Expo

The Council is organising a volunteer awareness expo. The expo is

on Wednesday 22 June from 3-8pm at Lincoln Event Centre and is

a chance for local community groups to explain what services they

offer and recruit new volunteers.

Selwyn community groups are invited to join the expo. It is free

to have a stall and stallholders receive free advertising in local

newspapers. To register your group or find out more about the event

contact 347 2755 or email lisa.larkin@selwyn.govt.nz.

Garden waste days good for our environment

Two community garden waste days in Malvern and Ellesmere have collected over 23 tonnes of organic

waste which will now be composted.

The two garden waste days were held near Leeston and near Darfield in April and provided people with

an alternative drop off point for garden waste. Over the two days, garden waste from 144 vehicles was

dropped off for a small charge. The events were staffed by the members of the Ellesmere Heritage Park

and the Malvern Lions Club, with assistance from Council contractors. Funds from the days have been

donated to both charities with the Ellesmere Heritage Park Trust receiving $560 and the Malvern Lions

Club over $1,000 based on the volume of garden waste from each of the days.

Garden waste can normally be disposed of either through optional Council kerbside green organics

bins in townships or at the Pines Resource Recovery Park near Rolleston. It can also be composted in

your back yard. Information about home composting is available online at www.selwyn.govt.nz/rubbish

under the ‘organic collection’ link.

Council Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd says it was great that people took the opportunity to

dispose of garden waste at the events as people often decide to burn it or put it into their red rubbish

bins and it ends up deposited in landfills.

Two more garden waste days are planned later this year in October/November for Malvern and Ellesmere.

On the roads this week

Edge break and shoulder repairs are scheduled to take place on

Wards Road, with traffic controls in place. 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 with temporary traffic controls in place.

Power undergrounding and streetlight installation work is continuing

on Tennyson Street and Lowes Road in Rolleston with temporary

traffic controls in place. The work on Lowes Road is being done to

enable work to complete the last section of footpath and kerb and

channel required on the road to be undertaken later this year.

Work is continuing on a shared cycleway/walkway on Rolleston Drive.

Good honest food the secret at Otahuna

IN THE GARDEN: Most of the ingredients Jimmy McIntyre uses

in his dishes are grown on the Otahuna Lodge grounds.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THERE AREN’T many chefs

who would invite their guests

right into their kitchen while

they work.

But for Jimmy McIntyre,

sharing the secrets behind his

food is part of what he loves.

His food is immaculately presented,

like art on a plate, using

skills he learned over almost

40 years cooking across New

Zealand, Asia and Europe.

But it was still good, honest

food, he said.

“Everything on the plate has

to be edible, no prissy garnishes

or anything like that.

And the secret to good honest

food was in the details, he

said - from the herbs growing

in the gardens right outside the

kitchen, the bread freshly made

in the mornings, or the hams

they cured for more than a year

to get the flavours right.

Sharing that with his guests

might mean inviting them

along to select mushrooms for

dinner that night, or into the

kitchen for a private lesson on

how it was prepared.

“It can be pretty frenetic,

so you’ve got to be organised,

but generally we get good at it.

And because the menu changes

every day it’s like cooking out of

a big magic box.”

His first role in the kitchen was

at about 11 years old, when he

worked for his stepfather in the

holidays washing dishes to earn

pocket money.

He said kitchens in those days

were very different places. Fine

food almost exclusively meant

French food.

He spent his early years working

for chefs at hotels and restaurants

around Auckland.

In his 30s, he spent several

years working around the world,

travelling Asia and then working

on a riverboat in Germany and

Portugal.

“I saw something quite amazing

I had never actually realised

before, and that was just good,

honest, basic, peasant food,

and how wonderful it could be.

Watching a woman make naan

bread in the sand over an open

fire in the middle of nowhere in

India, that sort of thing,” he said.

He returned to New Zealand to

take a job at Christchurch restaurant

Phloyds, which he said was

awarded Restaurant of the Year

after four months.

He went on to work at several

restaurants, including Espresso

124, which was where he met his

wife, Philippa, who is also a chef.

They met when they were both

guest chefs at the Sign of the

Takehe, but he didn’t think anything

of it at the time, he said.

SELWYN TIMES

“But she tracked me down

at work a few months later and

came into lunch at work with

some friends. She rang me up

just before service and said

would you like to get a drink

after work and I said yeah, sure.

And we’ve been together ever

since.”

He said juggling schedules was

a challenge around their three

young children, as she started

work at 5.30am and he often

worked late.

“It’s tough when you’re never

home half the time, but she’s my

rock and she understands what

it’s like.”

He took on the role at Otahuna

13 years ago, and was there

throughout the earthquakes,

when it had to be closed twice for

repairs.

But although many chefs

around the city lost their jobs,

he said the owners of the lodge

made the decision to keep all the

staff on.

Over the four months the

lodge was closed for repairs, the

team kept busy feeding the army

of tradespeople at work on the

place, he said.

“There were truck drivers and

blocklayers and painters. All the

subbies were competing to get

out here and do the job, because

they got a really beautiful cooked

lunch every day.”

SPORTS

Introducing

Selwyn Sports Trust

Just over three years ago a group of Selwyn professionals with strong

interests in sport created Selwyn Sports Trust. They had grand ideas

for the Selwyn District and in the past three years have been working

hard to realise these, or at least begin to realise them.

SST has a clear vision; to enrich people’s lives and community

wellbeing through sport and recreation. Its mission is to promote and

support participation in sport and recreation in the Selwyn District. Its

primary objective is to increase participation and volunteering in sport

and active recreation by supporting, coordinating and complimenting

existing providers.

As such SST has designed and currently hosts three annual events; the

Lake Crichton Series – Triathlon & Duathlon, the Koru Games and the

Selwyn Running Festival. Ellesmere, Malvern and Lincoln Road Runners

are also SST organised groups that operate on a weekly basis. These

provide active members of the community a chance to exercise with

others of a similar ilk.

It is now the mission of Michael Wilson to ensure SST utilises its

current resources to have the greatest impact on the sport and

recreation landscape within Selwyn. He is also very keen to grow the

resource base that SST has at its disposal.

Watch this space for the future SST initiatives for the Selwyn District.

CENTURION: Ryan Odering has joined the 100-game club for Lincoln. ​

Prop’s milestone

• By Gordon Findlater

LINCOLN PROP Ryan

Odering has a new

addition to the wardrobe

after he bought up his

100th cap.

He received his special

blazer after the match

against Burnham/Dunsandel/Irwell.

The occasion was a special

one for the 28-year-old

who has been playing for

Lincoln since the age of 12.

“Playing with the group

of guys, that’s what keeps

me there. We have a good

group of eight or nine guys

I came through under-15s

and colts with who are still

together.”

Some of Odering’s

fondest memories have

come on the field during

his matches for the first

division team, which he

has been a part of for 11

years, winning multiple

Ellesmere titles.

The highest honour,

though, was winning the

combined country finals in

2011 and 2014.

“Doing the double, that

was pretty special.”

Unfortunately for Odering

and Lincoln, hopes of

another combined title are

over after Rakaia made the

most of home advantage in

Saturday’s quarterfinal, in

what was his 101st match.

While he now spends

his days in the front row it

wasn’t always the case.

Standing at 1.89m and

weighing in around 120kg,

Odering’s senior rugby

days began on the wing.

“I ran 100m pretty

quickly and was always a

biggish sort of a lad.”

A desire to get amongst

the rough stuff has since

led him to the front row

with Lincoln teammate

and World Cup winner Joe

Moody helping him make

the transition.

“Joe’s a real asset for the

club, he came out for my

100th game and I’ve learnt

a lot from him during my

transition from the wing.”

The cap count is only

expected to rise in the

future for Odering who is

already committed to

another season of rugby as

he looks to see his teammates

replicate his achievement.

“A few guys I came

up the grades with are

going for 100 next year.”

SELWYN RUNNING FESTIVAL

Entries will be open on Saturday 4 June for the sixth running of the

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Making the most of

show home viewing

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for features and

fittings to put into a new home. it can also be helpful for getting a spatial feel

for other aspects of a house design.

Before heading out for a day’s

viewing, conduct an internet search.

identify the locations of show home

villages and the types and sizes of the

various building company’s homes on

display, noting down the square metre size

of each home.

if wanting a high end, architectural

design, focus on the larger homes that

have desirable design features. if at the

entry or middle level of the market,

earmark homes that fit this taking in other

show homes for extra ideas.

allow sufficient time when visiting each

show home, asking for a floor plan that has

room sizes before walking through.

Check also the floor to ceiling height

of the rooms and consider how this feels

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or

more spaciousness created with a higher

stud or exposed ceiling beams.

if doors and windows are taller than

normal, weigh their effect in creating a

more luxurious and spacious feel, against

potential inconvenience for small children,

cleaning and maintenance.

on entering each room, take account of

how much furniture is in each room and

whether there is sufficient space for the

furniture you will have in the room and

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look

too, at storage capacity throughout the

home and whether this is adequate.

in the living areas, consider whether a

lounge separated from the family living

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,

living/lounge area is preferable, and

compare internal kitchens with those that

have natural light.

Look too at the layout of the kitchen:

whether to have an island sink or breakfast

bar where a newspaper can be read, and

children can sit and draw or complete

homework; the positioning of appliances;

and how important having a pantry is.

for the little rooms, equate space

and features desired with that needed,

especially if the budget needs to be sharp.

it might be nice to have a large walk-in

shower with double shower heads but is

this just fanciful and will the extra cleaning

annoy you long term. a laundry in the

garage is also more economical though a

separate laundry may be handier.

Bring the garage size into the equation

also. as these vary considerably, assess

the actual measurements of each garage

viewed comparing this with the space

needed for your motor vehicles and other

items to be stored there. if a good number

of toys will be housed there, it may be

sensible to increase the size of this area of

the home.

By imagining what you need, want and

will have in your new home, you will be in

a better position to confidently choose a

design that works for you.

Vineyard device

designed to improve comfort

and efficiency for workers

A mAchine designed to make work

easier and more efficient in vineyards

has been developed by Lincoln

engineering student mike Liao.

The machine allows for grape picking,

leaf clipping and pruning while sitting

down.

mike says the fruiting wire for a

viticulture position system defines the

position of working.

“This wire’s height can vary

depending on different type of trellis

system. But one thing most trellis

systems have in common is they are

relatively low. The working position

is usually much lower than an adult

human’s comfortable working range.

“Thus, the solution — come up with

an adjustable chair which holds workers

into a comfortable position,” mike says.

While the device is designed to make

people’s work easier, the side-effect

of comfortable working is a quality

assured working period and better

efficiency – in this case by up to 20 per

cent in harvesting time.

“This device also rises people’s feet

from the ground which can be cold and

wet. Working with cold and wet feet is

not ideal for anybody.”

The idea came from working in the

university vineyard, he says, where he

found he suffered from a sore back.

“So i started to wonder if there is

something i can do to improve the

experience.”

When his course required students

to come up with a project related

to agriculture, mike saw this as the

opportunity to do just that.

Developing the ‘vineyard assistant

device’ took about two months from

start to its successful field test on

may 6.

mike is not looking to commercialise

his invention at this stage, but it will

be making an appearance, along

with Lincoln University, at this year’s

Fieldays, from June 15-18, and will be

in the innovation Tent.

Spud takes centre stage

in science programme for students

The poTATo may not be the obvious

choice as a means of inspiring young

minds about science, but that’s precisely

the point for plant & Food Research soil

scientist Dr Trish Fraser.

earlier this month Dr Fraser and

colleagues hosted more than 300 primary

and intermediate students from six

Selwyn District schools at plant & Food

Research’s Lincoln site.

The students were taken on a scientific

journey in sustainable production, crop

protection, breeding and biotechnology,

and food and nutrition, with the potato

holding centre stage.

The visits were part of a project funded

through the Unlocking curious minds

programme – a ministry of Business,

innovation and employment (mBie)

initiative that aims at enhancing the

role and awareness of science in the

community through public engagement

and participation. Researchers and

research teams from across the country

put proposals forward for funding

approval under the scheme.

The programme was repeated over

three sessions, with the students receiving

presentations and taken on a tour to

research stations on plant & Food

Research’s Lincoln site, where they then

participated in science demonstrations.

“The aim of our Unlocking curious

minds project is to inspire children

about science by giving them a greater

appreciation of the important role it plays

in their daily lives, and with things we can

easily take for granted,” Dr Fraser said.

“We tend to think science needs to

have an obvious or dramatic ‘gee whiz’

aspect to be interesting, but we can miss

the fascinating science that plays out

around us every day, either through

natural processes or the work of scientists

themselves.

“We used the potato for the project

because children can easily relate to

them, especially through their love of

chips. So this humble vegetable provides

a great vehicle for explaining how plants

are bred for different purposes, how we

use scientific methods to fight pests and

diseases, how growing plants can affect

the environment, and the range of behindthe-scenes

science that gets the crop from

paddock to plate.

“We wanted to show the students that

something that might seem mundane

actually has a fascinating science story

to tell. in so doing, they gained a better

understanding of the properties and

processes of the living world.”

Dr Fraser’s Unlocking curious minds

project also includes an upcoming

workshop for teachers, which aims at

identifying opportunities to better support

their science teaching endeavours, thereby

enhancing the engagement of students

with the subject.

“primary and intermediate teachers

can be responsible for many subjects,

but cannot be experts in everything. The

school environment can make it tricky to

juggle all of these teaching responsibilities,

with science often perceived as time

consuming and difficult to teach,” Dr

Fraser said.

“Research has shown that while

children start school with enthusiasm,

their motivation for subjects such as

science can decrease as they progress

into intermediate school. An important

part of this programme is to explore ways

of building the teacher’s toolkit to help

ensure students maintain an interest in

science later in life.”

Gardening

Keep veges growing to protect beds

Use winter

for routine

maintenance

Transplant seedlings of

cabbage, cauliflower and

broccoli for a continuous

supply over winter.

Although the weather has

cooled, there are still a few tasks

to be done in the garden this

month. Here are some tips to get

you started.

• Vege gardens – The winter

vege garden should be well

established by now and most of

your seedlings should already be

planted. Continue to sow broad

beans and transplant seedlings

of cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli

and silverbeet for a continuous

supply over winter. Sow green

manure crops such as lupin and

mustard in the parts of the vege

garden that will be empty during

the winter months. This will add

nutrients into the soil and protect

beds over winter.

• Strawberries – It’s the

traditional time of the year for

final preparation and planting

of strawberry plants. Areas to

be planted should be mounded

80-100cm above existing ground

level. Incorporate large amounts

of compost into the strawberry

bed. New plants or offsets from

last year’s plants should be planted

15-20cm apart.

• Fruit trees – Pip and stone

fruit will have shed their leaves

and pruning can now begin. We

do this as early possible with

pip and stone fruit to avoid the

infection of silver leaf. Remove

all weak and inward growing

branches and reduce the height

of trees to allow for easy picking

and maintenance. After pruning,

spray with a copper compound

to help prevent any re-infection

of fungal diseases.

• Hedges – It’s an ideal time

for a final tidy up and hedge

trims. But remember, there will

be no new growth until spring,

so final trims should not be too

vigorous so the plants don’t stay

bare looking.

• Roses – It is possibly a little

too early for pruning, and

it does depend largely on the

weather. In the meantime, apply

a copper spray to prevent infection

of fungal diseases in spring.

Remove all dead leaves around

Below: Fruit tree pruning

can now begin.

the base of the rose bushes and

apply compost as both a soil

conditioner and mulch.

• Lawns – Grass growth has

now ceased due to the cooler

weather. It is an excellent time

to level lawns with a roller as the

moist soil makes levelling quite

easily.

• Paths and walkways – Paths

around the house and through

the garden can become very slippery

during the winter months;

water blasting can quickly

remedy this problem. In winter

months, we mainly utilise paths

especially when there are boggy

parts in the garden or lawn. For

this reason, you may wish to

consider additional paths to provide

easier access.

• Container gardens –

Brighten up decks and entrances

with containers full of blooming

winter annuals such as cinerarias,

pansies, primulas, snapdragons

and violas.

Finally, check local garden

centres for newly arrived winter

stock of trees and shrubs as

June is a very safe time for planting.

gardening without guesswork

Last year I put in garlic cloves but they did not expand into multiple

Question: cloves except for one which made only small cloves. The other

cloves changed shape becoming symmetrical but stayed small.

I grew them in garden mix, but did not add anything other than compost. What has gone

wrong and what should I do this time round to grow garlic successfully?

Answer:

Thanks to Jenny for her question.

What a great question! You could try and

start your garlic in our Patio Plus Potting

Mix in small pots, and then transplant

the growing plants into the garden in August. Garlic needs plenty of

fertiliser at planting so garden mix wouldn’t have enough nutrients for

the garlic’s liking. Patio Plus potting mix is ideal as it is packed with

nutrition. A side dressing of Nitrophoska in November will help to

keep sustain growth also. Garlic needs a long growing season and

may be planted from May to August. The bulbs should be planted

about 2x the size of the bulb deep and 25mm to 30mm apart to

allow the plants to develop good size bulbs. Garlic does not cope

well with competing with weeds, so make sure that if you see weeds

pop up, you remove them straight away. The plants should not be

lifted until the tops have fallen over and show signs of drying off

(this may appear as the leaf colour goes from a bright green to a

grey green colour) so do not be in too much of a hurry to lift the

plants unless the weather goes very cold and wet. The idea that you

plant on the shortest day and harvest on the longest day is only a

guide, and we have found from experience that the time to harvest

is usually a lot later than that (as late as mid to late January).

Hopefully this helps!

MY PRIDE & JOY

SELWYN TIMES

An Alldays and Onions experience

It was curiosity that led vintage car upholsterer, George lee to accompany a friend on a trip to the West Coast, to see an Alldays and

onions car which turned out to be nothing more than a motor and gearbox.

GeorGe lee began as a professional car upholsterer at the age of 17 and has worked

on motor vehicles at the high end of the market, upholstering hundreds of cars in his

career, from veterans to classics for individual collectors. These have included trimming

Ferraris including one that was redundant for racing, Aston Martins, and Jaguars with

some of the vehicles that he has trimmed being displayed in car shows internationally.

After a long chat with the owner and looking over photos of some of the many cars

that George had upholstered over the years, George who had always said he would not

restore a car unless he found something rare was given the parts.

It was the beginning of a ten year project that incorporated unmentionable hours

searching for parts and rebuilding the Alldays and onion, named after a British firm

which manufactured automobiles between 1898 and 1918 and also built an early tractor

and motorcycles.

“Finding parts was like a treasure hunt and when word got around, it snowballed with

us receiving parts from all over the globe,” advises George.

“A car restorer contacted someone in Nelson which led to us acquiring a burnt out

chassis. Then a client told a colleague whose mate had a chassis. It’s such a unique

vehicle that anything that was out there found me with collectors sending parts they had

in their workshops,” explains George.

The lights were supplied by a man who was disposing of his father’s car light

collection: “It was great. I obtained the right lights for the vehicle from one person,”

adds George.

A differential was located in the North Island and another differential and motor

came from an Alldays and onions’ owner in england. Then there were many hours

making parts that could not be found. George borrowed original seats from another

Alldays and onions car, to take a pattern so he could make the seats, which in the front

swing round to allow backseat passengers to climb in.

The 1905 Swing-Seat Tonneau 10 horsepower twin-cylinder Alldays and onion has

a three speed and reverse gear box and does 36 miles to the gallon making it quite

economical with a range of 120 miles. Its accelerator is a small lever underneath the

steering wheel (not on the floor) and the gear change goes forward

or back.

The brakes are not overly reliable on the car so it has a hill holder (a ratchet/sprocket)

on the back of the gearbox. The driver can drop the arm to jam the gearbox and stop the

car from rolling back down a hill.

George says the car will trundle along all day at 30 miles an hour and is lovely to ride

in, which is not surprising given that he upholstered the seats.

“It’s a real pleasure to build a car like this as you’re preserving history and are its

custodian for a short

time,” says George

who was honoured

when a great great

granddaughter of

Alldays went to see

the car at the easter

Vintage Car Club’s

rally.

“When we drive

along the road, people

turn and look at the

car. All you see is

people smiling and

waving. You don’t

get that with

modern vehicles.”

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

PREP THE VEHICLES

FOR WINTER

Check the condition of

windscreen wiper blades, tyre

pressure and the tread of

each tyre as this can affect

vehicle handling and braking

in the wet.

Winter driving can be challenging when roads are slippery and rain

obscures visibility. It can especially be dangerous if a motor vehicle is not up

to the conditions.

reGulAr SerVICING helps ensure

motoring reliability even when a vehicle

is new, as problems can arise especially

with annual warrant of fitness checks.

Keep an eye on when the WoF is due and

book early so there is time for any needed

repairs before expiry date. This will not

only help ensure vehicle roadworthiness

but also protect your car insurance.

If organising a WoF is a weekend job,

then call by Jones road Auto. Their WoF

bay is open between 9.00 and 12.00 on

Saturday mornings.

Good visibility, reliable brakes,

good tyres, correctly adjusted working

headlights, and a structurally sound vehicle

are all essentials for safe winter motoring.

Check the condition of windscreen

wiper blades, tyre pressure and the tread of

each tyre as this can affect vehicle handling

and braking in the wet. Worn out tyres are

also the reason for many WoF rejections.

If new tyres are needed, rolleston Diesel

and Petrols supply high quality leading

brands such as Maxxis tyres.

Antifreeze loses effectiveness over time

so top this up. It helps prevent water in

a vehicle’s cooling system from freezing

and rust deterioration in the radiator and

engine. Selwyn Auto in Springston can

assist with this and any needed repairs.

Brakes that are not in good condition

can be hazardous as a vehicle does not

have the same stopping power, especially

when roads are icy or greasy from rain.

local automotive service centres such as

rolleston Diesel and Petrols specialise in

diesel and petrol repairs of all sizes and will

quickly check the condition of your brakes.

Car batteries work harder to start a

vehicle in colder weather, explaining why

more fail in winter. The life of a battery is

easily tested so if your battery is around

five years old or is struggling at times

get it tested by one of the automotive

centres in Selwyn, that carry batteries,

such as Newlands Auto electrical where

batteries for motorcycles through to heavy

Diagnostic testing of a vehicle’s electricals

may also highlight an issue and most local

Small engine, high performance

• By Ross Kiddie

IF YOU’VE long considered

buying what’s often been

deemed as the motor industry’s

most desirable hot hatchback

– Peugeot’s 208 GTi – but have

always considered it a little

too small to be practical, then

Peugeot may still have an exciting

sports car for you.

I’m talking about the newlyreleased

308 GTi, it is true to the

hot hatchback concept, yet it is

dimensionally bigger than the

208 offering all of the performance

aspects but in a body shell

which is more family-friendly.

And, what’s more, it gets the

same engine – the 1.6-litre turbocharged

unit which has found its

way across several vehicles from

the Citroen/Peugeot stable.

Some might argue that 1.6-

litre is hardly the powerhouse

for a sports car, but I can report

that somehow Peugeot has managed

to extract 200kW from

this engine, and with a fabulous

330Nm of torque available from

just 1900rpm it is a true powerhouse.

I remember well when

engines of 2-litre capacity were

bordering on 200kW, that was

deemed to be a stroke of engineering

genius, now that mass

market cars can achieve that

output from just 1598cc is, to me,

PEUGEOT 308 GTi: Quintessential hot hatchback.

simply remarkable.

Not surprisingly, the 308 GTi

is quick, Peugeot claim a 6sec

standstill to 100km/h time and

accelerating through a quick

highway overtake, the test

car stopped the clock at 4sec

(80km/h to 120km/h).

Because of its capacity there

aren’t big cylinders to fill with

fuel. Consequently, the 308

GTi also gets a remarkable fuel

usage rating. Peugeot also claim

a six-litre per 100km (47mpg)

combined cycle average. My testing

time included a 5.3l/100km

(53mpg) instantaneous readout

at 100km/h (engine speed

2400rpm) and a 7l/100km

(40mpg) average figure when I

returned the car to the dealership.

All of these figures are impressive,

you can combine the exhilaration

of swift movement without

fear of melting the credit card

come fill-up time.

Not surprisingly, the 308 GTi is

engineered specifically for those

who like to be well involved in

the driving process. It is a manual-only

model, the six-speeder

has a shift movement close and

direct, the clutch is moderately

firmed but progressive with its

action. The suspension is also

well-firmed, it’s not hard, but it is

optimised to accept the challenge

of vigorous cornering.

I took the GTi on a high country

loop which incorporated

many varying twists and turns. It

is a car which relishes that environment,

not only does it usher

in speed forcefully between corners,

it has body balance and suspension

control not unlike that of

its sibling – the 208 GTi.

Providing the grip are sticky,

sport specification Michelin Pilot

tyres (235/35 x 19in). They provide

solid feedback as to how they are

performing in a corner, and they

combat the force of engine power

as it is applied on corner exit. There

is little indication that push towards

understeer would develop, the handling

sensation is neutral.

A feature which I found very

entertaining is the dynamic sport

system. If you initiate a consolemounted

switch the GTi enters a

frenetic, manic mode. The engine

exudes a louder tone, and throttle

response is a lot more reactive.

Dashboard graphics also let you

know you are in dynamic mode,

three percentage bars for power,

boost and torque are displayed

depending on throttle actuation.

Not only is it a car of true performance,

the 308 GTi is also

specced to provide the niceties

that you would expect from a

car which isn’t budget-priced at

$58,990. For that money you get

specification items which include

• Price – Peugeot 308 GTi,

$58,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4253mm; width, 2043mm;

height, 1446mm

• Configuration: Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1598cc, 200kW,

330Nm, six-speed

manual.

• Performance – 0-100km/

h, 6sec

• Fuel usage – 6l/100km

satellite navigation, keyless entry

and ignition and leather trimmed

sports seats.

As a series, the 308 sits on the

cusp of the mid-size hatchback, it

couldn’t be classed as a true fiveseater,

although there are three

seat belts across the rear; but

mostly it is a comfortable fourseater

and it also has the benefits

of rear doors.

And while the 308 range isn’t

vast in terms of model proliferation,

there are interesting aspects

within the range. Notably, a diesel

GT was released at the same time

as the GTi, I’m due to drive that

car soon and I simply can’t wait.

It shares much the same componentry

which makes the GTi so

agile yet, I’m assuming it has that

fabulous mid-range boost that

only diesel engines develop.
