Changes to tricky

roundabout

• By Caitlin Miles

CHANGES TO the tricky

roundabout near the Rolleston

dog park will be fast-tracked to

make it safer for students at the

new college.

The Goulds Rd, Tennyson St,

Springston Rolleston Rd and

Lowes Rd roundabout has been

a tricky one for motorists to

negotiate for years.

The

Rolleston

Residents

Association

chairwoman

Nicole Reid

(left) and

Rolleston

College

principal

Steve Saville

outlined their safety concerns

at a recent Selwyn District road

safety subcommittee.

The college is scheduled to

open next year with a starting

roll of between 200-250

students.

Changes to the roundabout

will be made next month.

The key change will be four

access points to the roundabout

instead of five.

Goulds Rd will be closed at

the roundabout, making it a

how students will navigate the roundabout once Rolleston College opens next year.

dead end.

Current work extending

Broadlands Drive past

the college to creating a

roundabout at Springston

Rolleston Rd will be finished

this month, to dove tail into

the changes at the five-legged

roundabout.

Mr Saville said the school

wants to encourage students to

cycle but they were concerned

about safety issues at the

current roundabout.

District council asset

manager of transportation,

Andrew Mazey said the

changes will be made because

the roundabout has “become

increasingly under pressure and

less safe with the build up of

traffic in the area.”

He said the closure will

improve the safety and

performance of the existing

roundabout.

Mr Saville said the school

“was initially concerned”

about students being able to

cycle safely to the school but

are “pretty confident” the

whole situation is going to be

resolved before the college

opens.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think the five-legged

roundabout by Rolleston

College needs to be

changed to make it

safer to use for cyclists and

Lincoln

parking

losses

revealed

• By Caitlin Miles

ABOUT 75 car parks will go from

the centre of Lincoln, the Selwyn

Times can reveal.

Thirty-four will go along the core

retail area on Gerald St, and 41

from Marion Place to West Belt.

Retailers are furious at the district

council decision. They say it will

have a major impact on their businesses.

The car parks are going to allow

for cycle lanes from the university,

through the town centre and beyond.

The cycle lanes will be put in as a

result of being identified as the

No 1 priority in the Lincoln Town

Centre Plan, a council spokesman

said.

He said the lost car parks will be

replaced by new car parks in the

immediate vicinity of the town

centre.

“It is too early to know precisely

the number of new car parks that

will be established, as detailed planning

of the new parking precincts

has yet to be undertaken,” he said.

“At this stage it is anticipated that

26 new car parks will be established

in the Lyttelton St, Maurice St

and West Belt (north and south)

precincts, and around 50 new car

parks are expected to be created in

new communal parking areas.

CONTROVERSY MAY be about

to brew again over where the

Lincoln skatepark could go. You

may remember a couple of years

ago it reared its head, with the

district council opting to pull the

idea completely. But Lincoln lad

Josh Brown, 14, just wants a place

where he and his mates can skate.

Surely there can be a compromise?

Let me know your thoughts.

Congratulations must go to

Kirwee’s Jenny Gallagher and

Prebbleton’s Selma Scott for

receiving a Queen’s Service Medal

yesterday.

This week we start a monthly

column from the Selwyn Waihora

Zone Committee. Water and its

use can be source of much

division in the community.

Whatever which way you think,

it is important to get the facts and

we hope this regular column will

help keep you informed.

AGENCIES POINT FINGERS OVER POT HOLE

A FEW drivers got caught

in a pot hole near the

intersection of Hoskyns Rd

and State Highway 1.

The pot hole apparently

appeared after all the rain on

Wednesday morning.

But when the Selwyn

Times called the district

council and NZ Transport

Agency to find out who was

going to fix it, each said it

was the other organisation’s

responsibility.

The NZTA confirmed later

that day that the pot hole

had actually been filled in

that morning – but not until

after it had claimed a few car

tyres and rims.

Skatepark plan resurfaces

• By Caitlin Miles

A SKATEPARK may become a reality for

Lincoln with public consultation due to

start later this month.

The district council wants to make a community

park in Lincoln with the idea first

proposed in 2014. But the district council

are yet to release where it thinks the park

should go.

Plans were originally put on hold but the

possibility has come back up again in the

latest proposal.

In 2014, when the community park was

planned, a report to the Selwyn District

Council recommended a preferred site at

the back of the clubrooms at the end of

Meijer Dr.

But these plans were met with contention

from the rugby clubroom which was worried

about vandalism.

The plans were later put on hold by the

council and no time line was given for when

it would be made.

Lincoln High School

student Josh Brown

(right), 14, has wanted a

skatepark in the area for

many years.

It has been four years

since Josh started advocating

for the idea. He

would still like to see it

get the go ahead.

“I think the kids in the area would really

enjoy having one here,” he said.

BOARD TALK: Lewis Partridge, Connor Hazlett and Kaleb Belmonte use a ramp and

small jump outside the Lincoln Event Centre, but they want more jumps and ramps

to use. ​

Leeston, Prebbleton, Darfield and Rolleston

have skateparks and Josh thinks Lincoln

should follow suit.

“So many other areas in Selwyn have

them, I still think Lincoln should do it . .

.It would be nice to see the council and the

councillors agree to it and get one,” he said.

Lincoln Primary School pupils Lewis Partidge,

Connor Hazlett and Kaleb Belmonte

“really want a skatepark”, too, because the

other places with skateparks are “too far

away”.

“Some kids parents don’t want them bussing

to other places on their own, and the

cost of using the bus builds up,” Lewis said.

“It would be good to have it across from

the event centre, because then parents can

keep an eye on their kids while doing other

stuff,” Connor said.

Kaleb Belmonte said there are “a lot of

kids at school who would use it”.

should have a skate park? Where

do you think it should go? Send your

other direction. A detour will run

via Jones Rd and Weedons Ross Rd.

ELLESMERE, MALVERN PLANS

Consultation on the draft annual

plans for Ellesmere and Malvern

will close on Monday. The proposals

are for the development of Malvern

and Ellesmere for the next 15 years.

Submissions for the Ellesmere plan

close Monday 13 June at midday.

To make a submission, go to www.

WASTE AND WASTEWATER

The district council is currently

seeking public consultation on its

Draft Trade Waste Bylaw and Draft

Wastewater Drainage Bylaw. They

govern the discharge of trade wastes

into the sewerage system, and

the discharge of wastewater from

any dwelling into the wastewater

system. Consultation will close next

month. To make a submission, go to

the district council website.

When should you consider hearing aids?

Hearing well is a gift and

for those with hearing loss,

hearing aids are the tool that

allows them to hear well

again. It is best practice to get

hearing aids fitted “as soon

as persons hearing falls outside

the normal range.” Many

people wait until their hearing

loss is having a significant

impact on their lives before

seeking advice or help. This

not only delays the enoyment

of better hearing but what

most people dont realise, is

that it takes time to adjust to

wearing hearing aids.

There is the misconception

that as soon as someone

is fitted with a hearing aid,

that they will instantly hear

perfectly again. This is not

the reality as our brains and

hearing aids need to work

in tandum. If someone has

suffered from severe loss for

many years, the amplification

settings in a hearing device

will expose their brain to more

sounds such as background

noise, than it has experienced

in a long time. All of a sudden,

everything seems too loud

and is hard to process. The

best practice is to fit hearing

aids long before it gets to this

stage. Your brain will thank

you for it. Addressing hearing

loss sooner removes a layer of

stress and allows your brain to

keep up!

Maintaining good hearing

goes hand in hand with brain

function in later life. Struggling

with hearing loss is one

underlying cause to deterioration

in the brains ability

to process information. The

specialist advice is to maintain

good hearing and not allow

the brain to experience “severe

hearing loss.”

Further to the science is the

more personal side of living

with hearing loss. Any deterioration

in hearing has an

impact. The greater the loss,

the greater the effects on

everyday life and experiences.

It may start with having to

turn the television up one or

two clicks but the undeniable

truth is that it will become 20

clicks over time. If this is you,

your family will be nodding in

agreement!

The key is to not be an ostrich.

Hearing loss happens to the

best of us and the solution is

to start by having a hearing

test and a conversation with

your audiologist. Hearing is

valuable and therefore trusting

in the care you receive is vital.

Start with a hearing test

Call 03 390 2332 today

At Brenna Sincock Hearing we taka a

more personal approach to audiology

and a smarter approach to treating

hearing loss. Same day appointments

and hearing aid fittings, home visits, unlimited

follow up support and you will

always be seen by Brenna. We can help

you enroll with us and assist you with

your existing hearing aids.

Lake quality improves

• By Bridget Rutherford

LAKE FORSYTH’S condition

has improved “remarkably”

with the recent rainfall after

recurring toxic algal blooms

flared up, killing animals.

Banks Peninsula Water Zone

Committee chairman Steve

Lowndes said the rainfall had

had a positive impact on the

lake’s water quality and condition.

“The water in the lake has

improved remarkably since the

rain and bad weather.

“It breaks up the algal bloom

and the wind has been blowing

left, right and centre.”

Last week, from Monday

night to Wednesday morning

the Cooptown weather station

near Little River recorded about

65ml of rain.

Mr Lowndes (right) lives next

to the lake, which runs from

Birdlings Flat towards Little

River.

The lake’s quality came under

fire in April when the algal

bloom flared up after a run of

dry weather.

The water was green with

toxic slime, and it was reported

30 sheep had died after drinking

it.

AT ITS FINEST: Environment Canterbury expects to see Lake Forsyth’s condition improve

further in the coming weeks, so its health warning can be lifted.

Environment Canterbury science

water manager Tim Davie

said the latest results from sampling

were from May 24.

“The concentrations of nodularia

(the toxic cyanobacteria) as

of May 24 have declined but are

still high enough to warrant a

health warning,” he said.

“We expect these to decline

significantly in the next two

weeks given the cold weather

and significant rain but at

present we have advised Canterbury

District Health Board of

the need for a continued health

warning.”

Wairewa Runanga and the

city council were granted a consent

in March to continue using

the pilot opening from the lake

to the sea for 35 years.

Lake Forsyth, or Wairewa, is

the only customary lake in the

South Island.

Ngai Tahu has the customary

title over it, meaning only iwi

members can fish for eel from

the lake.

In Brief

CENTRAL PLAINS WATER

The district council is looking to

buy shares in the Central Plains

Water Scheme to enable the

irrigation of its farms at Creyke

Rd in Darfield and the Hororata

Reserve. This would allow the

irrigation of about 188ha of

land. The estimated total cost

of irrigating the two properties,

including the purchase of shares,

is $1.788 million.

WATER MANAGEMENT

A ‘working draft’ Water

Conservation and Demand

Management Plan is up for

approval at tomorrow’s district

council meeting. The document

includes an improvement plan

for water demand management

in the future, intended to address

the need for sustainable and

efficient use of water resources.

BUILDING WARRANT OF

FITNESS

The district council are hosting a

free event for building owners to

discuss building warrant of fitness

requirements and responsibilities.

A building warrant of fitness is

a certificate which is renewed

annually and must be displayed

in the building. People interested

in attending must register by June

21. The event will be held on June

23 at the Lincoln Event Centre.

Duck calling success

GEORGE BUTTERICK,

originally from Kaituna Valley

took out the Canterbury round

of a duck calling competition.

Mr Butterick now works at in

the Rangitata as a shepherd on

Willesden Farm, but the distance

did not stop him from making

the trip to the Springston Hotel

to compete in the Canterbury

section of the New Zealand Duck

Calling Championships.

After a long day of shooting

out on Lake Ellesmere, 11 of

Canterbury’s best duck callers

entertained 100 spectators as

they competed in the duck calling.

The round was the fifth in a

series of six competitions around

the country held since April.

During the Kiwi competition,

competitors have just one minute

of calling to impress the judges

with their impression of realistic

live duck call.

The national winner will travel

to America to compete in the

World Duck-Calling Championship,

which is held during the

Maryland Water Fowl Festival in

November.

Event organiser Adam Rayner

said it takes a certain amount of

skill to making a realistic duck

call.

WINNER: George Butterick won the competition and will now

head to the nationals next month.

Photos: Richard Cosgrove, Fish & Game New Zealand

“Duck-calling is like playing

any wind instrument, some

people are okay at it and others

become masters at it.”

Mr Butterick will go on to

compete at the national competition

held in Tauranga on July 9.

COMPETITION STARTER: John

Hunter opened the competition

at the Springston Hotel.

Snap Send Solve

app launched

THE DISTRICT council has

taken a leaf out of the city’s book

by introducing the smart phone

application, Snap Send Solve.

The city council was the first

council in Canterbury to introduce

it last year.

It lets people report a problem

in the area with infrastructure,

such as pot holes, pavements

in disrepair and send it to the

council.

The app uses the GPS location

of the user’s phone to locate

where the problem was reported

and generates a service request to

the district council.

It hoped the application will

work in well in secluded areas.

“Snap Send Solve is particularly

useful in rural areas as

it’s often difficult for people to

provide a precise location when

reporting an issue,” said district

council business relationship

manager Stephen Hill.

The system reports the

problem as soon as the user has

uploaded it, and contractors are

given the exact location when

they go to fix the problem.

The cost of implementing the

system was $1251. The annual

subscription for the council to

run the service will cost $3465

after this year.

“The app can also identify

whether an issue should be directed

to Environment Canterbury

or another local council,

based on the location and type of

report that is lodged.”

Mr Hill says that people also

need to include a short description

of the problem when they

submit a photo so that the

district council has enough

information to respond to the

report.

Since the application was

introduced in April 55 issues

have been reported to the district

council using Snap Send Solve.

The district council’s online

form at www.selwyn.govt.nz/

helpline can still be used to

report an issue with or without

submitting a photo.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think reporting issues to the

council via a phone application

is a good idea? Let caitlin.

miles@starmedia.kiwi know

what you think.

Queen’s Birthday honours List

Two Selwyn residents

hard work within their

communities has been

recognised in the the

Queen’s 90th Birthday

Honours list 2016.

YESTERDAY, KIRWEE resident

and Malvern Community Board

chairwoman Jenny Gallagher and

Prebbleton’s Selma Scott received

the Queen’s Service Medals.

Mrs Gallagher has lived in

Kirwee for 44 years and over that

time she has worked with numerous

community groups, helping

raise money for different organisations

and received The Queen’s

Service Medal for her community

work within the Malvern/Kirwee

area.

Mrs Scott of Prebbleton, a

barrister and solicitor, was recognised

for her role with the Pacific

Community.

She is also the Pacific Trust

Canterbury chairwoman, Niu

Economic and Enterprise Development

Trust vice-chairwoman,

and is a member of the Human

Rights Review Tribunal.

Christchurch Community Law

Centre’s Pacific Island Project

legal education co-ordinator and a

legal officer for the Public Service

Commission in Samoa.

Mrs Scott has held similar voluntary

roles with Autaumafai o

Fanau Aoga Amata Preschool, the

Citizens Advice Bureau, and the

Tangata Atumotu Trust.

Star Media chairman honoured

• By Gabrielle Stuart

STAR MEDIA chairman Nick

Smith has been recognised in

the Queen’s Birthday Honours

for more than 50 years work in

media and sport.

He was named an officer of

the New Zealand Order of Merit

yesterday.

Star Media is the publisher of

the Selwyn Times, several community

newspapers in Christchurch,

The Star and magazines.

The company also broadcasts

CTV.

Mr Smith started work at the

Christchurch Star in 1965, as an

advertising cadet.

“It was the heyday of newspapers.

You weren’t competing for eyeballs.

I spent two and a half years there,

and it was fantastic. I still have a

lot of friends from those days, we

had a lot of fun together. We used

to have boxing tournaments in the

lunchroom,” he said.

He went on to become a director

of Allied Press, publisher

of the Otago Daily Times, and

chairman of CTV.

Although he was a major

shareholder, he said he stayed

in the background at CTV

for several years, leaving the

running of the company to

managing director Murray

Wood.

RECOGNISED: Star Media chairman Nick Smith was named an officer of the New Zealand

Order of Merit in the Queen’s Birthday Honours yesterday.

But when Mr Wood was killed

in the collapse of the building in

the February 2011 earthquake,

Mr Smith said he was suddenly

thrust into management of the

station.

He remembered the first

meeting the day after the earthquake,

sitting in a dark room

without power talking about

the future with his distraught

staff.

“It would have made more

sense to take the insurance

money and close the station, but

to me that would mean we let the

staff and the victims’ families

down. That to me was the deciding

factor.”

He has also played a key

role in sport over the years, helping

to develop Hagley Park, form

the University Oval Redevelopment

Trust and raise $2 million

SELWYN TIMES

to establish the first cricket

ground in Dunedin.

He has also sponsored and

donated to many community

groups and organisations

working in the South Island.

“My philosophy has always

been what’s good for the

province is what’s good for the

business, and what’s good for

the company is good for the

province.”

PAINTING FOR GOD

Two artists, one known, one emerging.

Both from unique and isolated South

Island settlements, Banks Peninsula and

“In addition to these,

Back down on bus fare increase

• By Tom Doudney

ENVIRONMENT Canterbury’s decision

to back down on plans to increase bus

fares by 10 per cent is good news for

Selwyn residents, Deputy Mayor Sarah

Walters says.

Fares for bus users will now rise just 2.5

per cent on average in July.

ECan reduced the increase after strong

public opposition to the plans.

Deputy mayor Sarah Walters, who is

the district council’s representative on the

Greater Christchurch Public Transport

Joint Committee, said it was good to see

that the increase would be lower than

expected.

“One of the messages that I hope ECan

have taken on board in relation to public

transport is that the users are actually

doing the whole transport network a good

turn by using the bus,” she said.

“Increasing the costs of the users actually

is sending a contrary message to what

the transport system as a whole needs.”

Cr Walters said there were a number of

issues that needed to be addressed to get

bus usership for people travelling between

Selwyn and Christchurch higher but not

raising the fares too much would help.

ECan’s decision to raise the fares came

in response to a funding shortfall linked

to lower than expected bus patronage

which created a funding shortfall of about

$535,000.

About two-thirds of the 119 people who

submitted feedback on ECan’s draft Annual

Plan, commented on the proposal to

increase bus fares by 10 per cent.

Commissioner David Bedford said the

community’s response to the feedback

had been taken on board in reducing the

proposed increase.

“The figure of 2.5 per cent is even lower

than the 5 per cent rise we included in

our Long-Term Plan last year but never

introduced,” Mr Bedford said.

“The balance of the shortfall in operational

funding will come from targeted

rates.”

Detail on the timing and exact fares for

bus users will be released in advance of

the rises. The draft Annual Plan is to be

approved on June 23.

Tough rules with water

Selwyn

Waihora

Zone

Committee

chairman

Allen Lim

discusses

the

achievement

and also

the challenge of legacy

problems in water.

Welcome to this update on the

important water quality improvements

being undertaken by your

zone committee.

First I’d like to endorse the

comments of committee member

Pat McEvedy in his May Soap

Box – especially how challenging

and rewarding it is to be involved.

The zone committee is supporting

and driving on-the-ground

actions to deliver sustainable benefits

from water.

In our first five years: $500,000

of funding was allocated to

initiatives to protect and enhance

the natural environment, with

a further $250,000 from farmers

and others. The Whakaora

Te Waihora lake restoration

programme has been in place

since 2011. Stage 1 of the Central

Plains Water irrigation scheme

was completed in August 2015,

resulting in 15,000ha converted

from groundwater to surface

water irrigation and enabling

aquifer recharge. As a result of

Plan Change 1 to the Land &

Water Regional Plan, tough new

rules and nutrient leaching limits

have been imposed on farmers to

manage water quality and quantity.

Some 300 properties have developed

farm environment plans.

A key feature of the water

plan is the cultural landscape

values management area which

recognises the significance of Te

Waihora/Lake Ellesmere to Ngāi

Tahu in terms of mahinga kai,

wāhi tapu and wāhi taonga.

I believe we have laid a solid

foundation for improving water

quality in this zone. However,

due to legacy effects, we can

expect things to get worse before

they get better.

In the meantime, the zone

committee is working on implementing

plan change one.

There are many important local

water management challenges

still to be met.

These include: Encouraging

all farmers to operate at better

than good management practice

over time. Replacing more of the

groundwater with alpine water.

Maintaining or improving biodiversity

in and around the zone.

These initiatives and others

demand a collaborative effort coordinated

by the zone committee

and your zone team.

Please do not hesitate to contact

us any time to discuss and contribute.

Readers respond to last

week’s article about

Lincoln High School

starting a dog club.

Scott Fold, Lincoln: I think

it is great that Lincoln High

School has a dog club. It’s wonderful

to see something like this

in the town. It is obviously encouraging

people to train their

dogs more and teaching kids

and parents how to react around

dogs. I hope other schools in the

area pick up on the trend.

Sarah Pilan, Lincoln: Kudos

to Lincoln High School and

Emily Tighe for starting the dog

club and the school. What an

amazing idea and well thought

of. This is teaching the children

that dog obedience skills are

a top priority and also, as the

story tells us, it is teaching them

how to interact and be responsible

for their dogs and around

other dogs. It would be fantastic

to see this program being used

at other schools and I think the

inter-school competitions could

really take off. Once again well

done Lincoln High and Emily

Tighe.

This reader responds

to an article about

Lincoln primary and high

school getting more

classrooms following the

announcement from the

Ministry of Education.

Jane Capim, Lincoln: I

think it is really exciting news

to see the students of Lincoln

getting some more classrooms,

reading in the paper they have

had some issues with over

crowding and having to send

some students to separate sites. I

can’t imagine how stressful that

must have been for the kids and

parents and teachers. I’m glad

to see the Ministry of Education

doing something for the students

in Selwyn. Since it is a fast

growing area and Rolleston College

doesn’t open till next year,

there will just be more students.

I hope these classrooms get built

soon.

This reader responded to

last week’s article about

tree roots damaging

pipes as a result of the

earthquakes.

Patrick Leas, Darfield: As

if we didn’t have enough things

to worry about post earthquake.

It’s been six years since the first

earthquake hit and now we get

told tree roots may ruining our

pipes! It seems that we will never

be able to fully move on from

this with new problems cropping

up all the time. I’m glad I

know it could be a problem but

how much will this cost me to

get fixed when it wasn’t even my

problem? What will be the next

problem to crop up that will cost

more money?

This reader responds to an

article about Southbridge

firefighter Steve Maw.

Simon Bridges, West Melton:

What an interesting read

last week in Our People. How

inspiring the story was of this

young man doing an incredible

volunteering job as a firefighter

and also full time. These men and

women give up their own time

to help other people in the community

and most of us take it all

for granted. Sometimes we need

to sit back and think about this

and to read about these people

brings it all to the foreground. I

would like to say thank you to all

the volunteer firemen and women

who go that extra mile and never

ask for anything but support.

Big jump in

mental health

issues in city

• By Emma-Jane McLennan

MENTAL HEALTH issues in

Christchurch have reached “breaking

point” with numbers doubling in some

cases since late last year.

Latest statistics show the Canterbury

District Health Board deals with 17 new

adult walk-ins every day – adults who

have never needed the help of mental

health services before.

The figures come on the heels of an

outcry over the amount of funding for

mental health services available in Canterbury.

Last year’s closure of New Zealand’s

largest counselling service, Relationships

Aotearoa, combined with post-quake

mental health needs and dwindling

funds – at an average $222 per head of

population in Canterbury, compared to

the national average of $243.

The CDHB was facing service cuts. The

Government responded to the outcry by

announcing a $12 million mental health

funding boost in last week’s Budget.

Post-quake stress, insurance woes,

relationship issues and service cuts have

combined and now people “just can’t

deal with it anymore,” Mental Health

Advocacy and Peer Support manager Sue

Ricketts said.

Instilling integrity and morals

• By Emma-Jane McLennan

INTEGRITY IN school pupils

– that’s the goal of a foundation

working with the likes of Prime

Minister John Key and the

Crusaders to teach children

morals and ideals.

Christchurch schoolchildren

are responding “extremely well”

to interviews from high-profile

Kiwis explaining what integrity

means to them, Graeme Dingle

Foundation Canterbury regional

manager Noeline Allan said.

“We’re actually getting a lot of

uptake around the country, with

others borrowing the idea and

some even using our footage. It’s

just fantastic.”

The foundation is working

to implement Kiwi Can programmes,

which teach morals

to school pupils aged five to 12.

It works with pupils at South

Hornby School, Gilberthorpe

School, St Bernadette’s School, St

Anne’s Catholic School, Bromley

School, Christchurch East

School and Hornby High School.

It has term focuses each year

– resilience, integrity, positive

relationships and respect. This

term they’ve mixed things up

by creating video interviews of

people children might look up

to, talking about what integrity

means to them and how it has

helped them achieve success.

They included Prime Minister

John Key, who said: “Integrity is

absolutely crucial, in fact in some

regards integrity is everything.”

All Black and Crusader Joe

Moody said: “It’s just about living

by the standards I set myself

and trying to carry that through

in everything I do.”

Wigram MP Megan Woods

said: “Integrity means that you

stick to your beliefs. Sometimes

sticking up for what you believe

in isn’t the easy thing to do, but

for me it’s about having the courage

and being brave enough.”

Others included Justin

Bieber’s songwriter Jimmy

Wong, Crusader Israel Dagg,

Canterbury rugby coach Scott

Robertson and former Miss

Universe New Zealand Laural

Barrett.

Year seven pupils at Hornby

High School conducted some of

the interviews, and the foundation

has been “just amazed” at

the response from willing interviewees,

Ms Allan said.

“Believe it or not, this has all

come together since the start

of April. All of a sudden people

started committing – I even

thought why not John Key, and to

our surprise, a tape came back.”

Teaching morals to children

is “very important,” child psychologist

Bryan Wright said.

“Most of that begins with

John Key

Scott Robertson

learning empathy for others at

a very young age. That’s what

everyone wants their children

to grow up with, and what programmes

like this look to build

on.”

in our children

He said on a whole New

Zealand is doing “pretty well”

at teaching children morals

and values.

“Materialism is one of my

biggest worries, as materialism

undermines solid values.

But I think our children are

growing up in a different

world than what you would

years ago – if you take a hard

look its really not all doom

and gloom.”

Gilberthorpe School

principal Andrew Wilkinson

said the programme has

been great at reinforcing the

school’s focus on values.

“Having these young,

vibrant people back up our

messages is so helpful – they

can give practical examples

and it really resonates with

them.”

He said most schools are

doing their part in teaching

children morals and values,

it’s often the children’s

families that might let them

down.

“Backing up those values

at home leaves a lot to be

desired. Kids are at school six

hours a day, and home for 18.

It’s case-by-case of course, but

they need good role models at

home.”

The Kiwi Can integrity

teachings are being rolled out

across schools at the moment,

with the videos tailored to the

age groups viewing them, and

used

to prompt class discus-sion.

The programme was

dreamed up by a police officer

in Porirua who recognised a

need for values in schools, Ms

Allan said.

“It’s been in Christchurch

for four years now. We’re

helping our young people to

be strong, have a good set of

values and grow into awesome

adults.”

Community workshop

held for artists

ARTISTS THROUGHOUT the

area will get the chance to gain

more tips and ideas through a free

workshop.

The Selwyn District Council and

Selwyn Arts Trust are presenting

the workshop which is open to any

kind of artist living or working in

the area.

The workshop, ‘The Working

Artist – Key Tools for Success’,

is intended to help visual artists,

writers, sculptors, dance, craft and

others have more success through

marketing skills.

“The workshop is designed both

for artists who would like to turn a

hobby into a career, and for artists

who currently sell works but would

like to learn some tips on how to

boost their earnings through better

marketing, pricing and promotion

of their works,” said Selwyn Arts

Adviser Rachael Inch.

A variety of speakers from

around Canterbury will talk about

different topics, including how to

approach galleries, how to

reproduce works, running

exhibitions, social media and

website promotion and what arts

funding is available and how to

apply for it.

The event is being held on later

this month at the Lincoln Event

Our People

SELWYN TIMES

Jenny Gallagher

Kirwee resident honoured for years

Kirwee’s Jenny Gallagher has received a

Queen’s 90 th Birthday Honour for her work

within the community. She talks to Caitlin

Miles about following in her family

footsteps, travelling from Halkett to

Riccarton every day for school and her

plans for the future.

Congratulations on receiving The

Queen’s Service Medal for work

in the community. It must be very

exciting?

Yes it is. I’m very humbled by the

honour.

Was it a surprise?

Yes it was.

Must be nice to be recognised

for all your hard work?

It is, it makes me feel very proud

of what I’ve done and pleased that

I have done it. But I haven’t done

it on my own, there is also a great

team of people involved in the

community work.

You’ve received several other

awards, is that correct?

In 2002 I got an award at the

Malvern Sporting Awards as the

outstanding summer sports administrator

for tennis, a Malvern

Community Board community

service award in 2003 and a Selwyn

District Council community volunteer

certificate in 2011. I was also

given a certificate of merit and long

service award by the Royal New

Zealand Plunket Society for my

work for the Kirwee and Malvern

Plunket Association in 1989.

How long have you lived in the

community?

I was born and raised in Halkett,

and when Terry and I were married

I moved to Kirwee, so we have

been for 45 years.

Being from a small town did

you both go to the same school?

No, the closest high school was

Darfield but there was no bus from

Halkett, so I went Riccarton High

School.

You must have seen some big

changes within the community?

Yes I have. Seeing the community

grow is probably the main

reason I’ve stayed so involved.

The sports clubs and township

have grown. As a community we

have done some great things, like

getting the Kirwee community

hall rebuilt and working with the

Kirwee Tennis Club to get two

more courts built. But these things

happen because the whole community

works together.

You’ve been on several boards

and committees over the years,

can you tell me a little about

those?

There have been a few over the

years. I’ve been involved in the

Kirwee Model School Committee,

Kirwee and Malvern Plunket Association,

Kirwee Hockey and Tennis

clubs, Courtenay Agricultural

and Pastoral Association, Kirwee

Community Hall Committee, I

have been the Chair of the Darfield

High School Parent Teacher Association

from 1990 to 1992 and

I’m a member of the Kirwee Civil

Defence Response Team and the

Malvern Lions Club.

How many children do you

have?

We have three children, two boys

and one girl, well, they’re adults

now. We have eight grandchildren

as well.

You also joined the school

boards when they started school?

Yes, I got involved with the Kirwee

School committee when the

children started there and as they

grew up and went to Darfield High

School I was on the Parent Teacher

Association there too. I was the

chair from 1990-1992.

You were instrumental in

setting up the Civil Defence Response

team in Kirwee, can you

tell me about that?

Getting the civil defence up and

running was a big thing for me.

The council had a civil defence

evening and said the community

of service in the community

should have a plan to look after

themselves. I believed it was

possible to do something like

that here so after some discussions

and some ground work the

scheme got up and running with

coordinators in each street. Their

task was to check their street

after a disaster.

Was this before the earthquakes?

Yes it was, so when the September

earthquake hit, our coordinators

were on the streets checking

in with all the residents. When

the council could see how well

our plan had worked they decided

to put the plan throughout

the district. I felt very humbled

to be involved in something that

was helping the community in

such a big way.

What makes you so passionate

about helping your community?

My family have been involved

in community projects for generations,

my father and grandfather

worked for their communities

too. It’s probably the satisfaction

I get from seeing communities

making goals and helping them

achieve them. I have been lucky

to be involved with a community

that is so passionate about their

own success.

Has there been a certain experience

working with the community

that sticks out to you?

There have been many like that

but I think the one that sticks out

the most was the morning of the

September 2010 earthquake. It

was really amazing and wonderful

to see everyone rally together

and support one another.

You played a key role in raising

money for the Kirwee Tennis

Club, what was that like?

It was a great experience doing

that. I was the treasurer and

Secretary of the club for 21 years

and while I was in that position

the tennis club wanted to get

more courts. It took a few years

to get all the funds we needed

but we did it and it was a lot of

fun for the club. I have been very

fortunate to be honoured with a

life membership to the Kirwee

Tennis Club.

You certainly have done a lot

for the community.

I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t enjoy

it. I also could not do it without

the support of my husband Terry

and my family. He has been a

really great support and he has

encouraged me to do this work.

You are also a Justice of the

Peace?

Yes a member of the community

approached me several

years ago and asked if I would

be interested in doing it. So I

TRAVEL: Jenny and hes husband Terry took a trip to India, paying a visit to the Taj Mahal along

the way. ​

decided I would. It took about 18

months before I officially became

one, that was in 2008.

You are very busy with the

community, do you get a chance

to relax?

Yes I do, I have a big garden

and I find it really relaxing to get

out in the garden. We like getting

to spend time with our grand

children too and we’ve done a bit

of travelling overseas.

What has been your favourite

trip so far?

Different places have stuck out

for different reasons. We went

on a river cruise of Amsterdam

and Budapest which was amazing,

I really loved that. We also

travelled around India which

was very unique. I also went to

Yubestu in Japan. I went with the

high school and I represented

the Malvern Community Board

because we have a sister city relationship

with Yubestu.

Will you continue to work

within the community?

Getting this Queen’s service

medal won’t change that because

of the enjoyment I get from

working with in the community

and seeing the results we achieve.

Time running out to book for

beer festival

With only a few weeks to go, time is running out to secure tickets for

the annual ‘A Mid-Winter’s Ale Festival’ being held later this month

in Rolleston, when the best of Canterbury’s craft beers will again be

celebrated.

Last year’s inaugural event was a complete sell-out with festival-goers

being turned away on the day due to limited door sales. This year

more tickets have been made available, but it is envisaged the event

will again sell out. Tickets can be purchased through the website www.

canterburybeerfestival.co.nz.

An opportunity to enjoy locally brewed beer at its finest, the event is

bringing together the cream of Canterbury’s craft breweries as well as

some future stars of craft brewing. As a celebration of the growing craft

beer industry, it allows festival-goers to try new beers brewed on their

doorsteps.

Over 50 different beers will be available this year, plus ciders, with newrelease

local beers served fresh direct from the brewery. Among the

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

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

Brewing, Yellow Box Brewery and the Brewers Union. International

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

England, Belgium, Germany, Denmark and Japan.

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

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

wearable design made from recyclable materials related to beer.

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

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

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

Drummers will be giving their best performance for the show.

Matariki events at Selwyn Libraries

Selwyn Libraries have a range of activities planned to celebrate

Matariki – the Māori new year. For more information and to register

to attend a library event visit www.selwynlibraries.co.nz.

Local storyteller Rosaline Brown will visit Leeston Library on

Thursday 9 Piripi (June) from 3.30-4.30pm to share traditional Māori

stories at a free session for all ages.

Free craft sessions open to children and adults are planned between

16-24 June at libraries where artist Tracey Te Karu will show you

how to weave harakeke (flax) stars.

Science Alive will also visit local libraries from 21-27 June to

explain the science of Matariki stars and deliver some fun hands on

activities. These sessions are free and are recommended for children

aged 5-10. Children 7 and under need caregiver supervision.

People are invited to visit their local library to help create tō tātou

korowai (our community cloak). Material will be provided from 3pm

each day in June to help create the feather cloaks for display.

June marks the official start of winter which brings more challenging driving conditions including

rain, fog, ice, and often snow. Daylight hours are also shorter, and visibility is often poor during the

morning and evening rush hours when many people are on the roads.

“While the weather has been quite mild for much of May - June, July and August traditionally bring

colder weather with frosts often occurring in the morning and snow fall can also occur in Selwyn.

During winter, people need to allow extra time for journeys to defrost the car before starting and

travel more slowly on wet or icy roads,” says Selwyn Road Safety Coordinator Ngaire Tinning.

“If visibility is poor in the morning or evening or due to gloomy conditions or fog, putting your

lights on will make your vehicle more visible to others and will make your journey much safer.”

If you travel in the morning or evening in frosty conditions, reduce your speed on frosty mornings

as ice is likely to be present. Ice can also be a problem during the day on patches of road shaded

by trees or fences, so look out for this and reduce your speed before entering these areas.

Check out our driving tips to help make your journey safer in winter:

Driving in the wet

Stopping distances nearly double on wet roads. You need to:

· slow down and keep a generous distance from the car in front of you

· the two-second rule should be a four second rule

· be extra vigilant – take corners slowly. Watch out for road signs warning of flooding and allow

more time to stop in wet conditions.

Driving in snow and ice

Go slow on ice and snow:

· whenever possible, avoid driving in heavy snow and ice

· if you cannot avoid driving on snow or ice, then slow down, allow for much greater braking

distances and avoid braking suddenly.

· if you’re driving on a winding road, keep left and drive slowly, as you could quickly lose control

· watch out for ice in shaded areas, particularly if has been wet. After snow melts, there is likely to

be ice, especially in shaded places and bridges

· you should also carry chains, know how to fit them and use them when necessary

Driving in fog

Turn on your headlights, not just your park lights. You should also:

· reduce your speed as visibility is poor and keep a large following distance

· keep your headlamps on low (dip) beam, as high beam will reflect off fog and produce glare

Only use fog lamps when visibility is severely reduced (for example in snow or fog). It is illegal to

use fog lamps in clear conditions as they can dazzle other drivers.

Driving with sun strike

Sunstrike generally occurs early morning and late afternoon. Familiarise yourself with the areas

where it happens and take more care at these locations. Always keep your windscreen clean,

inside and out, and reduce your speed.

Free windscreen cloths and ice scrapers are now available at Council library/service centres.

Warm up with a coffee at

Selwyn Libraries

New coffee machines are now operating at Darfield, Leeston and

Rolleston Libraries. You can choose from a flat white, black coffee,

espresso, cappuccino, mochaccino or hot chocolate from the

machines for only $2.

Local libraries are a great place to keep warm with a good book

over winter. They also have newspapers for reading, free Wi-Fi

and computer access as well as regular storytime and rhymetime

sessions for pre-schoolers and a range of other library events.

Rail Crossing Closure - Hoskyns Road

Part of the rail crossing on Hoskyns Road, next to State Highway 1

at Rolleston, will be closed on Friday 10 June from 9am-3pm. The

closure has been requested by KiwiRail to allow them to complete

urgent maintenance work on the crossing.

During the closure period vehicles will still be able to travel from

Rolleston township and State Highway 1 towards Izone and Hoskyns

Road, but the crossing will be closed to traffic coming in the other

direction. A detour will operate via Jones and Weedons Ross Roads

while the closure is in place. To manage traffic at the State Highway

1-Weedons Ross Road intersection, manual traffic controls using stop

and go signals will be in place if necessary. KiwiRail thanks motorists

for their patience while this essential maintenance is carried out.

School embraces road safety

Clearview School recently held a Road Safety Week. During the

week the children had the opportunity to see inside two large trucks

from Heavy Trucks, look at the view truck drivers have of the road

and learn about safety around trucks. The event was organised by

the New Zealand Trucking Association and the Council. The day

was the launch of the Trucking Association’s education programme

which they plan to roll out to more schools in the future.

The Council also delivered an off road cycle training session, and the

school ran a number of road safety activities for children including a

mufti day where children dressed in bright clothing.

Clearview School is one of a number of Selwyn schools which has a

School Travel Plan. The school developed the plan with support from

the Council. It aims to ensure children get safety to and from school,

and supports children to walk, scoot and cycle if they choose to.

Non-stop gratification on offer

• By Mike Yardley

NO MATTER how you tackle

Sin City, Las Vegas requires a

suspension of disbelief, as you’re

consumed within the whirling,

swirling haze of non-stop

gratification.

Beyond the blaze of temptations

bracketing the Las Vegas

Strip, I ventured north to Fremont

Street and the Downtown

district, to dip into the Vegas of

old, in search of the city’s golden

age character. Fremont is where

the city was established in 1905,

spawning the first hotels and

splashes of neon.

Celebrating its 110th birthday,

the Golden Gate is the

city’s oldest hotel, at the head of

Fremont Street and holding the

distinction of introducing Vegas

to the shrimp cocktail in 1959,

which remains an iconic seller at

Du-par’s Restaurant, just off the

casino floor.

Encased within a soaring barrel

vault canopy that stretches for

four blocks, delight in the cluster

of old-style casino hotels including

the Golden Nugget, Four

Queen’s, California and Binion’s.

Betty Binion was quite the

trail-blazer, introducing seating

and carpets to casinos. She also

pioneered the insidious allure of

complimentary drinks for casino

patrons.

Within this pedestrianised

promenade, you’ll find the

legendary neon cowboy, Vegas

Vic and his cowgirl, Vegas Vicki,

who was previously called Sassy

Sally. The street erupts into

techni-coloured excess from

dusk, with the Viva Vision sound

and light extravaganza, powered

by 12 million LED lamps and

220 speakers.

From there I grazed from

the Cultural Corridor, the

city’s heritage precinct which is

continuing to flourish. Liberace,

the king of bling, is the latest to

be immortalised in the precinct

with a dedicated collection of his

luxury cars now joining the Hollywood

Cars Museum.

Liberace’s favourite Rolls-

Royces are in good company.

Exhibits include the DeLorean

from Back to the Future, Herbie

the Love Bug, five James Bond

cars including the Lotus Esprit

submarine car and the coffin

dragster from The Munsters.

I also headed to the Mob

Museum, for an enlightening

warts-and-all look at the ruthless

RECOGNISED: The Welcome

to Las Vegas stands proudly,

it contrasts with the obsolete

signs of the Neon Museum

(above)

world of organised crime, which,

at times, has engulfed Las Vegas.

The most engrossingly

macabre feature is the

photographic gallery of mob

killings, which leave nothing to

the imagination.

Next up, head to the Neon

Museum and Boneyard, for an

intimate stroll through Las Vegas

history.

Dedicated to saving and

preserving vintage neon signs,

there’s currently over 200 signs

in their stash – many of which

graced legendary establishments.

in Sin City

Flush with fascinating

anecdotes, volunteer guides will

lead you through the open-air

exhibition space, which only

opened three years ago.

If you’ve ever wondered who

designed the globally

recognised Welcome to Las

Vegas sign, it was a creative

woman called Betty Willis. The

city mourned her passing last

year, at the age of 92.

Stand-out specimens include

the signage from the Stardust,

Sahara and Desert Inn.

All of the signs are donated

and salvaged from properties,

prior to their demolition. It’s a

photographic feast.

For another flavourful scoop

of Viva Las Vegas heritage,

I ventured out to Casa De

Shenandoah, the staggering

estate of Wayne Newton.

Described by Entertainment

Tonight as The Smithsonian

of Sin City, it’s only been open

to the public since September.

Most Americans know Wayne

Newton as “Mr Las Vegas”, an

old-school entertainer who

performed alongside the Rat

Pack, Nat King Cole and Elvis,

and at last count has clocked up

over 30,000 live shows in Sin

City.

FAST FACTS

•Home to the 10 biggest

hotels in the world, finding

a sharply-priced Las

Vegas room isn’t difficult,

although weekends tend

to be more expensive and

watch out for those pesky

resort fees. I booked my

was effortless, efficient and

packed with great deals.

Food

Korean twist to Kiwi food

• By Gabrielle Stuart

MAY SHIN just had her

first day off in more than six

months – and she realised

it had been so long she had

forgotten how to enjoy it.

“I felt so nervous. I had

nothing to do but just sit and

drink coffee.”

Gentle Giant, in Ferry Rd, is

the third cafe she has opened

with her sister, business

partner and “best friend”, Ji

Shin, since she moved to New

Zealand from Korea eight

years ago.

The first was Cafe Pure on

Cashel St, which was destroyed

in the earthquakes.

At the time, she said she

was very new to New Zealand

and still trying to grasp what

customers were looking for

in terms of food and environment.

She said cafe culture in

Korea was very different,

especially as the population

of cities there was so much

denser.

“Just on my street there

was one after another, cafe,

cafe, cafe, and then upstairs

there were more, cafe, cafe,

cafe. And they served a lot of

drinks, but mostly no food.”

Although she had spent time

in the United States in her 20s,

FLAT WHITE: May Shin’s artistic side spills over into her

menu.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

she said she also struggled

with the language.

“At the time I didn’t really

enjoy selling at all, but now my

regular customers are friends.

So many people have helped

me, they are very lovely.”

Losing not only their cafe

in the earthquakes but their

prime central city location

was a big blow, but the sisters

bounced back.

They opened In Situ on

Opawa Rd four years ago, and

with its quirky interior and

Lyttelton coffee, it became a

popular local hangout.

But Ms Shin’s real love was

food, and she said the cafe’s

kitchen was far too small to be

able to offer real meals.

That was one of her goals

for Gentle Giant: she wanted

to put a lot more emphasis

on food, with a full breakfast

menu rather than just cabinet

food.

Her vision for the menu was

traditional Kiwi classics with

Korean twists – from the herbs

and spices used on pulled

pork, to incorporating vegan

options which were hugely

popular in Korea.

But finding the balance

wasn’t easy, and she said it

took several months to develop

the menu, using friends

and family as guinea pigs to

test the dishes.

As Gentle Giant had been

open just six months, she said

there was still a lot of work to

do there.

But she said it was already a

place she loved to be. And one

thing she was sure of was that

Christchurch was home.

Fashion

Style for your

post-baby body

• By Emma-Jane

McLennan

WHEN BRIDGET York

first had her baby, Jacob,

her world was turned

upside-down and her

plans for a fashion label

were put on hold.

But it was in becoming a

mother that she saw a gap

in the market for quality

merino breastfeeding and

baby wear, and decided to

fill it.

“It’s really hard to find

good breastfeeding wear

– a lot of it is made for

maternity as well, but it

means that as you lose

your baby belly you’re left

with this saggy sort of

unflattering shirt.”

Mrs York wanted something

a little more stylish,

that would make her feel

good about herself and her

post-baby body, while also

making it easy and discreet

to breastfeed in public.

“I wanted to create something

I’d wear. When you’re

breastfeeding it’s a constant

thought on your mind –

you’re looking at clothes

and wondering, how can I

pop a boob out here?”

She has combined her

creative training – studying

fine arts at university

– with her background

in textiles through her

family’s business, Weft

Knitting Company.

That background has

been woven into Mrs

York’s ranges – Bridget

York and Baby York –

which she creates out of

100 per cent merino wool.

She launched earlier this

year after a hectic Christmas

season “two family

weddings and getting a

whole range together

before February 1.”

She sells baby basics and

breastfeeding womenswear

through her online

site, as well as stores such

as Bundle at The Colombo.

“I’ve even just had an

order from a woman in

TIGHT-KNIT: Bridget York and her son Jacob, who

inspired her mother-and-baby merino range.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

France, who found me on

Etsy. That’s just the power

of the internet,” she said,

shaking her head.

But while the baby wear

range has taken off, Mrs

York said it has been an

eye-opener observing

mothers’ buying habits.

“It’s really interesting,

mothers will often spend

hundreds [of dollars] on

their baby before they

spend anything on themselves.

My message is that

mummies need to invest

in themselves.”

the clothing by hand while

Jacob is at pre-school,

with her husband or at

his grandparents a couple

days each week. And while

the brand is selling well

so far, she doesn’t plan to

expand for a while yet. She

said it has been a “massive

learning curve” and the

business is serving its goal:

It is allowing her more

time with her son.

“I love being an at-home

mum, and that’s really

what I want to do. Just

spend more time with

him.”

How To Be Colourful

This Winter

Winter fashion does not have to be dull.

Use colour wisely to brighten up your outfit

but remember that neutral basics in colours

such as black will mix and match with your

brighter colours and give you versatility in your

wardrobe.

Also remember that it is the colours you

choose to wear close to your face that you

should focus on if you are trying to colour up

your Winter palette.

Augustine is all about colour and we have

pictured this stunning fushia jersey knit dress

with metallic trim (Pheonix knit dress $179)

Liven up a dull day with the

stunning Vargo Lush top in fire

colourway. ($159) This top looks

perfect with pants and

skirts. Our mannequin

is wearing LTB jeans

($249) and genuine

rabbit fur vest in brown.

($229)

Another stunning option

is the pretty beaded

neck floral Augustine

Veda dress ($179) This

dress has been teamed up

with a faux fur Jorge vest

($119.90) This dress could

be dressed up for a Winter

wedding or dressed down

with a denim jacket for work

or play.

Another way to do colour

is to simply add a pop

of vibrant colour to a

more subtle toned dress

such as this White chalk high

low dress in charcoal stripes

($119) with Augustine mallory

kimono ($179) pictured in

stunning fushia.

Australian opposition for Ellesmere’s finest

• By Tom Doudney

SELWYN RUGBY players will

have some extra incentive to

play well for their clubs in the

Combined Country competition

this month.

Earning selection for the

Ellesmere representative side will

mean getting to test their mettle

against a touring Queensland

Country side from Australia on

June 27, before a fixture against

Mid Canterbury and the annual

Southbridge Shield match

against North Canterbury next

Queensland Country competes

in Australia’s National Rugby

Championship, the equivalent

of New Zealand’s Mitre 10 Cup

(formerly the ITM Cup).

The Queenslanders have

played North Canterbury on

both sides of the Tasman over

the last two years and when another

match was organised this

year, Ellesmere were added to the

itinerary.

Ellesmere Rugby Sub Union

president Stuart Boon said it

would be a good incentive for

Ellesmere players to prove themselves

at club level and a chance

to play some new opposition.

“It’s a good opportunity for

our guys to have a hit out before

we play North Canterbury,” he

said.

taken occasional lump sums

and just one per cent had made

regular withdrawals.

Of those who had taken the

money out 46 per cent planned

to put it in the bank either on

call or in a term deposit.

Another 18 per cent planned

to use it to pay off debt or a

mortgage, 15 per cent were going

to make a big purchase with the

money and 12 per cent were going

to travel with it.

And it appears Kiwis aren’t

alone in taking that approach.

Jeremy Cooper, chairman of

Australia’s largest annuities provider

Challenger, told attendees

at a forum on “decumulation”

held by the commission last

month that research showed

Australian retirees were not

blowing their money.

“They are hoarding it because

they fear running out.”

He said Australia’s superannuation

system was good for

building up savings but was not

built for providing a retirement

income.

“We are all sold a bit of a pup.”

He said defined contribution

schemes like Australian super

and New Zealand’s KiwiSaver

scheme took people to the “cliff

edge” but provided little in the

way of help once they got there.

“In your mid-60s you are

handed the largest amount of

money an ordinary person is

ever given and asked to make

future calculations about inflation,

about life expectancy . . . at

a time in our lives when people’s

risk aversion dramatically shifts

from when you are working to

not.”

Australian research showed

the average superannuation

balance for a household in their

early 60s was now A$425,000.

But there was also a growing

number of people reaching

retirement with a mortgage

- 30 per cent of retirees had a

mortgage up from 20 per cent 20

years ago.

Cooper said decumulation – or

how to get people to pay themselves

an income in retirement -

was the number one problem for

Australia’s A$3 trillion superannuation

industry at the moment.

KiwiSaver balances are much

smaller than Australian balances

with the average now around

$10,000.

The commission is looking

at decumulation as part of its

three-yearly review of retirement

income policy.

David Boyle, group manager

of investor education for CFFC,

said as KiwiSaver balances grew

New Zealand needed to ensure

there were a range of income options

for people.

ORGANIC HORTICULTURE COURSES

Instruction in organic horticulture is

now well established at the Lincolnbased

Organic Training College. The

next year-long course, which begins

on 1st August, will be the ninth

intake for the college. Students need

no prior qualifications or experience

to commence Year One and can

study full or part-time. Those who

have some horticultural background

can go straight into Year Two.

An added appeal of the course is that

all fees are under $500, and full time

students are eligible to apply for a

loan or allowance through Studylink.

Course Director Bill Martin says it

works well to start the course year in

the spring. “The organic horticulture

course is all about growing so we

want to start the course in spring

when it is the right time to begin

planting.”

Year One students get plenty of

hands on training in subjects such as

sowing and planting organic crops,

soil management and composting.

The Year Two students have the

option of using land and facilities

on the Biological Husbandry Unit

(BHU) Farm to grow and sell their

own certified produce – a semicommercial

venture that gives

students a real taste of organic

horticulture as a business. The

students grow vegetables under the

guidance of a mentor and sell them

at a weekly stall at Lincoln University

“The Year Two programme gives the

students experience in a commercial

environment without any risk. It’s

the icing on the cake for a lot of the

students here,” says Bill Martin.

As well as the year-long organic

horticulture courses a distance

(correspondence) programme in

organics is also available.

The Organic Training College is

located at the Biological Husbandry

Unit at Lincoln University. There

are 10 hectares of certified organic

land as well as greenhouses, tunnel

houses and research areas.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

Thanks to Neroli for her question.

I have seen a bunch of new season rose bushes out, can you please

tell me the how to plant them into my garden beds properly?

Roses like a sunny spot, preferably

Answer: where they will get at least 5 hours

of sun. Choosing the right spot is

important for your plants to survive. The local garden centre you

purchase from will be able to talk to you about which varieties will

be best for the area that you have in mind. The quality of soil in

the area you pick is important too. This is the base for creating a

healthy environment for your plants to grow.

Here are some simple steps when it comes to the planting stage:

1) Dig a hole, approximately twice the depth and width of the root

ball of your rose.

2) Gently loosen the root ball of your rose and position the plant in

the centre of the hole.

3) Press soil gently around the base of the plant. For extra nutrients,

you can add Patio Plus at this stage.

4) Fill the remainder of the hole, pressing gently – but firmly.

5) Water your rose well after planting.

If you haven’t prepared your garden beds yet, you can add some

Organic Compost and some Sheep Pellets to your soil. These are

excellent at ensuring the garden is ready for your rose bushes.

Beautiful bedding nemesia

• By Tod Palenski

IF YOU have an area in your garden

you’d like to blanket with colour, then

nemesia is the plant for you.

It is a lovely small bedding plant

that can be used for edging, in

borders and as a ground cover and,

in the right conditions, will produce

so many flowers it’s hard to see the

greenery.

Growing to a height of around

20cm, it’s also lovely grown in pots,

hanging planters or any other suitable

growing container.

Nemesia seedlings come in mixed

colours. Bi-colour bundles contains

seedlings that will produce flowers

with more than one colour on each

flower. Some are a mix of white and

lavender, yellow or pink and others

are just a mix of different colours. A

mixed bundle will produce all sorts of

different coloured flowers including

orange, white, red and pink.

Wherever you decide to plant your

nemesia, try to ensure the soil is rich

and moist and that the plants will be

mostly in full sun to part shade. Then

simply plant your seedlings around

15cm apart from each other.

Depending on the weather, in just

five to six weeks you can expect a

beautiful array of different coloured

flowers in your chosen garden bed or

container.

COLOUR:

Nemesia is the

plant to use for

ground cover.

It also grows

well in hanging

containers.

HARDY: Cabbages are ideally suited to the

winter garden.

Create a base for

planting in the spring

A LOT of vegetables grow happily through the cold

weather.

Don’t forget, though, that winter is also a good time

to leave some beds empty so that they have a rest. It’s

also a good season to create some new vege beds.

The easy way to do this is to start by constructing

an above-ground edging. Then fill the enclosed bed

with manure, leaves, straw or grass clippings.

Leave this alone for a couple of months and you’ll

have the perfect base for your spring plantings. An

additional sprinkling of lime encourages biological

activity in the bed and will prove to be beneficial for

most veges.

Members of the cabbage family, for example, chinese

cabbages, broccoli, cauliflowers and cold-loving

brussels sprouts are ideally suited to the winter garden.

Broad beans and peas grow well in the winter

months but won’t always set their pods until spring.

Volkswagen Passat sticks to proven

• By Ross Kiddie

ON PAPER, there’s a certain

similarity with the mainstream

cars which are coming out of

Germany.

Between BMW, Mercedes-

Benz, Audi and Volkswagen

there are a plethora of models

which have 2-litre turbocharged

engines, some with four-wheeldrive,

some without.

The latest to come my way

is Volkswagen’s Passat 4Motion

and, as its nomenclature

suggests, it is four-wheeldrive.

It lists at $68,740, and

competes competitively with

similar product from all of those

marques I mentioned in my

introduction, simply because it

sits just a little bit lower in the

price range.

Of course, there are other

Passat models which are priced

from $46,390, but if you want

the high-power 2-litre petrol

engine and 4Motion then you

have dig a bit deeper.

And the new Passat has huge

power, it is rated with 206kW

and 350Nm of torque developed

through strong turbo boost

– peak power is listed low in

the rev range at 5600rpm to

6500rpm, while maximum

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT: Stylish sedan.

torque is available all of the way

from an amazing 1700rpm.

These figures combine to

produce strong performance – a

standstill to 100km/h figure of a

quick 5.5sec is claimed and if the

laws allowed it would top end

at 250km/h. Power is ushered

in willingly, but unlike some of

its competitors, there is little

sound in the Passat, if you listen

intently you can pick a little bark

out the exhaust as the turbo

goes on and off boost, but it is

subdued.

There are five driver-selectable

driving modes on offer – from

economy to sport settings – the

latter provides more immediate

acceleration, but I used normal

for most of my testing time

and it still sparks up that

feisty nature that over 200kW

provides.

Power is directed through

a six-speed direct shift

transmission. There are only

two pedals, so effectively

DSG works like a traditional

automatic, bar for the noticeable

• Price – VW Passat,

• Performance – 0-100km/

lack of torque soak. The result

is unimpeded power output

and lightning quick, smooth

shifts. Interestingly, the high

power Passat doesn’t get the

seven-speed DSG of its 1.8-litre

counterparts and I suggest that

is because it can’t be paired to

4Motion.

Volkswagen also claim a

7.1-litre per 100km (40mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage rating

for the new Passat; I was a bit

heavy-footed during my time in

the test car, so the best I could

glean was around 9l/100km

(31mpg), but I can report a

7l/100km figure is available at

a steady 100km/h cruise with

the engine turning over at just

2200rpm.

I had a Trade Me item to

I can report that the Passat

Too good not to share

Graeme and Fiona Stirling are neither new to Rolleston

nor to running a Robert Harris café, so when the

opportunity arose to bring this popular café to Rolleston,

they thought why not; a decision welcomed by locals.

Over winter, their great coffees and regular menu will be

complemented with comfort foods including soup like

kumara and bacon, pies, burgers, quiche and other warm

savoury items.

Winter with Fascino

Shorter ankle style boots in navy and tan are the trend this

year, with red or petrol also colours coming out of Europe.

Fascino Shoes have a great selection of shoes and boots

including their twist on the Chelsea Jodhpur boot and

longer boots that look great with shorter skirts. They also

stock beautiful handbags and look out for their new range

of scarves and jewellery.

Fascino Shoes is open 9-5 weekdays, and 10-4 weekends.

Rolleston Square caters for all shopping

needs with a great selection of shops

offering a fantastic range of products

from food and banking, to basic

household items and retail therapy.

Whether it is health care; property;

dining out, snacks or coffee; fashion,

footwear and clothing; drycleaning; hair

care or styling; travel; or exercise, there

are plenty of options along with The

Warehouse where there is a wide variety.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Property values

in Selwyn

Setting the right selling price for your home is not always easy.

Over-priced properties can take

longer to sell and when a property sits on

the market, potential buyers may think

there is something wrong with it, while

houses priced well below their market

value provide a buyer with a bargain.

Using the government valuation as a

guide may be helpful though these usually

differ from market value, which in itself

may vary at different points in time.

The government valuation will however,

provide a guide as to a property’s value.

Larger houses and those with additional

buildings are naturally likely to have a

higher capital value dependent on age and

condition of the dwelling.

Homeowners can appeal the

government valuation of their property

which may be done to reduce council

rates. This is not always a good idea, even

if planning to stay in a home for some

time as one day the property is likely to be

sold. A lower capital value could translate

to a lower perceived market value in the

minds of buyers who are likely to consider

the Gv at the time of making an offer.

Where a Gv is not indicative of a

property’s true value, it may make sense

to appeal this. Grounds for doing so are

where improvements have been made

that affect the value of the land, changed

boundaries, an extraordinary event that

has affected the property’s value, a district

plan change, re-surveying perhaps by

subdividing the land, improvements

added or removed especially where

a building consent was required, or

inaccurate legal documentation.

Where a property has experienced

earthquake damage then there is more

chance of preserving its value if repairs are

completed before sale.

Naturally, a well presented property is

likely to attract a more favourable price.

properties that have the X factor will

generally be in a good location and have

nicely kept gardens and uncluttered, wellpresented

homes with extra features when

compared to similar sized properties on

the market.

in Selwyn, people are also looking

for extras such as off-street parking for

caravans, motorhomes, boats, triple

garaging or separate workshops. inside,

features such as walk-in pantries, tiled

bathrooms and walk-in tiled showers are

also sought after, setting a property apart

from others on the market.

While the market has somewhat slowed

there is still demand for land and existing

homes in the district. This is especially

true in rolleston and its surrounds,

attributed to by the continued industrial

growth in izone where small to medium

sized businesses have set up to support the

inland ports and with more employment

opportunities, there will be more demand

for residential property.

Well-presented properties with extra features can attract a more favourable price.

Industrial growth has added to demand for houses in Rolleston.

Proud to have been building

homes for Cantabrians

for more than 25 years.
