Move to change water use charges

• By Caitlin Miles

POPULATION growth and

water conservation are behind

a move by the district council

to change how they charge

townships for water use.

By 2019, the majority of

townships in the district will pay

$200 base rate and be charged

at 40 cents per cubic metre of

water. Selwyn Times

At the 266mm moment, x 90mm parts of

Rolleston and new subdivisions

pay for their water at this rate.

The rest of the district pay

$350 and receive 375 cu m of

water. If they use more, they pay

more.

The information was released

on the council website recently

and is also detailed in The Water

Conservation and Demand

Management Plan – Working

Draft that the district council

adopted at the last district

council meeting.

The moves comes after the

Christchurch West Melton

Zone Committee looked at

introducing water metering

in the city as an option for

conserving water.

In the last financial year,

Selwyn had the most rapid

population growth in the

country at 6.5 per cent. It is

projected the population in 2041

will be about 90,000.

Armack Drive in Rolleston,

Johnson Rd in West Melton,

Raven Drive in Springston

and urban parts of Darfield,

Doyleston, Claremont, and West

Melton water supplies will be put

on this charging system by next

month.

Water meters will be installed

gradually and most areas put on

the volumetric charging system

by 2019.

Deputy Mayor Sarah Walters

said this scheme may help reduce

demand on water.

“Water metering encourages

people to take responsibilty

on their own water usage and

reduce wastage,” she said.

Doyelston Community

Committee chairman Jack

Pearcy said this will not make

the district council very popular

with property owners.

His area is being put on the

scheme by next month – but he

did not know it was happening.

WHO HOLDS the Murray

Cooper Shield? Lincoln or

Burnham/Dunsandel/Irwell?

That will be the big question

facing the Ellesmere Rugby

Union tonight. Lincoln

was defeated by Burnham/

Dunsandel/Irwell but it all

hinges on whether the game was

a final or a round-robin match.

See page 25.

We have some smartly dressed

young people on pages 8 and

9. Lincoln High School held its

formal recently, and it seems the

lads were dominating the dance

floor with some smooth moves.

Finally, on pages 12 and 13,

reporter Tom Doudney talks

to Annie McGregor who lost

her mountaineering husband

John Harrison almost 50 years

ago in one of New Zealand’s

worst climbing disasters on Mt

Rolleston. Have a good week. –

Display debate fires up

• By Caitlin Miles

AN ARGUMENT is brewing

between the district council

and the Rolleston fireworks

committee over where the

annual display should be held

this year and who should pay.

Rolleston fireworks committee

has lobbied, via the district

council’s annual plan, to move

the evening event from Rolleston

Reserve to Foster Park.

It says the display has outgrown

the reserve, but to move

to Foster Park it needs to put in

fencing.

The committee has asked

the district council to pay

$40,000 for this year’s event, an

amount that includes lighting

security and large amounts of

fencing.

But district councillors said

at a recent meeting the move is

unnecessary and have asked the

committee and staff to produce a

report evidencing the need.

Committee chairman Jens

Christensen said it also wants

the district council to take over

the funding and managing of

the event.

He said it should be fully

funded by the district council.

“I think they seriously underestimate

the amount of planning

UNCERTAIN: The Rolleston Reserve may not host this year’s

fireworks display

Jens

Christensen

Pat

McEvedy

involved in the event … we will

still run it but we want them to

take over the funding. It should

be a district event,” he said.

“We want to move the event to

Foster Park because it has got so

big and we need more space, but

we need the council to support

us,” he said.

However, district councillors

do not think the event needs

to be moved this year. District

councillor Pat McEvedy said

while the event had grown, he

did not think it had expanded

to the point it needed to shift to

Foster Park this year.

Cr Malcolm Lyall said at a recent

meeting of the district council

that he was concerned that the

organisation kept applying for

funding when, in his opinion, the

gate fees were too low.

In Brief

CPW SHARES

The district council has agreed

to purchase pre-construction

and construction shares in

Central Plains Water for two of

its properties to allow for their

potential future irrigation. The

two sites are Raeburn Farm on

Creyke Rd which may become a

wastewater treatment plant site

in future, and Hororata Reserve.

The reserve has a recreation

lake on it and water from the

CPW scheme may be used to

help fill it, or for other irrigation

purposes.

WATER RACE CLOSURE

The closure of a section of the

Paparua Water Race Scheme has

been approved by the district

council. The New Zealand

Transport Agency had requested

that 0.8km of water race be

closed along a section of its

land bordering State Highway

1 as part of work associated

with the Southern Motorway

extension. The district council

recommended that a fish salvage

operation be carried out.

Dealing with cyberbulling

The next step in the battle

against cyberbullying

CYBERBULLYING and other

modern forms of harassment

and intimidation can have a

devastating impact on people,

especially children and teenagers.

The Government recognises

the growing significance of this

problem which is why last year

we created new laws to deal with

this problem.

The Harmful Digital Communications

Act 2015 included

a range of measures to address

damaging electronic communications

spread through methods

such as emails, texts and social

media posts.

The Act created a new criminal

offence to help tackle the

most serious instances of bullying

and harassment by people

using digital technology. The

offence – causing harm by posting

digital communication – is

punishable by up to two years

imprisonment or a maximum

fine of $50,000 for individuals

and a fine of up to $200,000 for

companies.

While some of the measures

under the Act came into effect

in July last year, such as the creation

of the new criminal offence,

others such as the creation of an

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

“Approved Agency” to deal with

harmful digital communications

required a longer time frame to

implement.

Budget 2016 included $16.4

million of new funding to

support the Harmful Digital

Communications Act including

operation of the Approved

Agency.

In my role as Justice Minister I

recently announced that internet

safety organisation NetSafe has

been appointed as the “Approved

Agency” under the Harmful

Digital Communications Act.

NetSafe will play a key role in

reducing the devastating impact

of harmful digital communications,

by providing a timely

and effective service, enabling

victims to get help from an independent

body.

The Approved Agency’s role

includes advising on steps people

can take to resolve a problem,

investigating and attempting to

resolve complaints where harm

has been caused, and providing

education and advice about

online safety and conduct.

NetSafe is experienced in

addressing many of the issues

associated with harmful digital

communications. It brings a

strong body of knowledge and

experience in this area and is

already working with a range

of enforcement agencies to help

victims.

It is expected that NetSafe will

start as the Approved Agency in

November 2016.

Once the Approved Agency

is up and running, people can

apply to the District Court for

mandatory orders in relation to

any complaints they have been

unable to resolve through the

Approved Agency.

The court will be able to make

a range of orders, including

requiring material to be taken

down. Failing to obey the court

orders will be punishable as a

criminal offence with a penalty

of up to six months in prison

or a $5,000 fine for individuals,

and fines of up to $20,000 for

companies.

Readers respond to an

article on changes to a

five-legged roundabout in

Rolleston

Sue Javerill, of Rolleston – I

think it’s great to see the district

council backing the school and

residents wanting to see a change

to the round about.

That thing is so dangerous. I

absolutely hate it so I’ll be glad

to see the construction team

move in change the route. That

roundabout is so skinny and

awful to try and see who is going

where.

Nice to know the district

council are making the changes.

Jean Paurman, of Rolleston

–That roundabout has been a

problem for years, I’ve lived here

for a long time and actively avoid

driving near it because of how

tight it is and the fact it intersects

with so many roads. It’s about

time the district council change

this piece of road.

I can’t wait to be able to safely

walk to the dog park without

having to dodge around cars

and navigate the tricky road. The

students may not know it but

they will certainly appreciate the

changes the district council are

making.

Changing this roundabout

and putting in another further

down is a good idea. I just hope

they make it big enough to safely

navigate and don’t make it as

SELWYN TIMES

skinny as the old one.

A real exciting move by the

council and very good for the

students too.

Peter Fitz of Lincoln

responds to an article about

car parks being removed

from the main street of

Lincoln to put in car parks:

This car park thing is causing

quite a few issues isn’t it? It’s a

really double-edged sword.

On one side, losing car parks

along the main street must have

an impact on the businesses and

older people may have to walk

further, which could cause some

problems but if the council are

going to put in parking lots then

the car parks will still be there.

Just further away?

So people of Lincoln will have

to walk further to allow for

cycleways. That isn’t too bad.

Since everything is central in

Lincoln anyway. Since the district

council is going ahead with the

changes maybe more unhappy

people should have spoken up.

I think it’s good to have

cycleways in Lincoln. I don’t

know if we need two though.

Police station

move a possibility

• By Andrew King

ARTHUR’S PASS police station

could be on the move.

Police are reviewing the location

and are considering moving

the station closer to town.

It could possibly move closer

into town beside the

Department of Conservation

centre.

A police spokeswoman said

consultation is currently under

way and no decision has been

made at this stage.

“Staff and the public are being

consulted with as part of

talks around a

region-wide review,”

she said.

Selwyn MP

Amy Adams

(left) said she

was supportive

of moving the

station.

“There is no intention as far

as I know to not have a

station in Arthur’s Pass,” she

said.

A police spokeswoman said

ON THE MOVE: The Arthur’s Pass Police Station could possibly

moved closer to the DOC centre.

a community meeting is being

planned to outline the proposed

restructure.

“The public will be advised

when this has been confirmed,”

she said.

Consultation finishes around

the end of the month and a

decision is expected around July

14.

“If the restructure were to go

ahead as proposed we’ll look

to reinvest that position into

Rolleston,” she said.

Rugby clubs

target of drink

driving blitz

A POLICE drink driving

campaign focusing on rural

rugby clubs, which faltered last

year due to a lack of resources, is

about to be re-launched.

The initiative aims to encourage

rugby players in Selwyn and

Waimakariri to have a sober

driver when planning postmatch

celebrations.

Senior Sergeant John Hamilton,

who is heading the programme,

said the programme

didn’t get far last year due to

resources being diverted to other

policing matters.

However, 14 rugby clubs had

been contacted about taking part

and he believed it would have a

lot more momentum this year.

“We’ve got good buy in from

everyone,” he said.

Senior Sergeant Hamilton said

there were more alcohol-related

crashes in rural areas because of

a lack of public transport and the

campaign was about looking at

ways to keep rugby players and

families safe after a night out.

“It can be an issue when players

win a game and feel pretty

good and the fun continues, so

we just want to make sure there

are plans in place to get them

home safely,” he said.

“It’s all about communication

and talking to the officials

at the rugby clubs and making

sure there are plans in place for

how people get home later in the

evening. There will be enforcement

carried out as well to make

sure that people are following

the rules.

“I guess we’re after role models

and people that set a good example

for the young guys coming

through.”

Restoration rewarded

• By Caitlin Miles

A SEVERELY earthquakedamaged

homestead near

Darfield shared a major prize

at the Canterbury Heritage

Awards last week.

The 104-year-old Racecourse

Hill Homestead was

announced first equal along

with Chilcombe Homestead

in Fendalton in the PKF

Goldsmith Fox Domestic Saved

and Restored category of the

awards.

The awards aim to recognise

the heritage that remains

around Canterbury and celebrate

the buildings themselves

and community groups that

keep history and heritage recognised

in their areas.

There were 35 finalists in

seven categories at the awards

for this year.

Following the September 4

2010 earthquake the building

was targeted for demolition

due to the extensive damage. In

2012 Brian and Bernice Cribb

decided to try and save the

homestead and repaired the

building.

“We wanted to restore it

because the moment you look

at it you wonder why anyone

would want to knock it down,”

Mr Cribb said.

Mr Cribb said it was a shock

to be nominated and make it

into the finals.

“We’re really thankful to get

the recognition for all the hard

work,” he said.

The couple and team of

builders, architects and interior

designer spent three years restoring

the building.

Glentunnel Library was

highly commended in the Public

Realm Saved and Restored

category. It also suffered damage

in the same earthquake. The

building was strengthened and

preserved by the district

council.

Hororata and Beyond,

part of the Hororata

Community Trust, was

also highly commended

in the Heritage Tourism

category and the Heritage

Open Weekend,

also part of the trust was highly

commended in the Outstanding

Contribution to Heritage

category.

Awards recognise excellence in

heritage retention and conservation,

Leeston

Skate Park

work finished

THE EXTENSION to the

Leeston Skate Park has been

completed.

The extension to the skate park

started in April and includes a

large flat concrete skating area,

new rails and ramps have also

been added to the park.

Additional landscaping has

been completed.

District council landscape

architect Dave Grieg said the

extension is more user friendly for

people of all ages and skill ability.

“The skate extension area

provides an area which is

suitable for younger children on

skateboards or scooters to use as it

has a flat surface and lower ramps,

but it can also be used by more

advanced skaters,” he said.

The skate extension was

completed by Hunter Civil Ltd

with landscaping by Greenlinc.

The construction team will now

move on to the Darfield skate

park to also put in upgrades.

These upgrades will include a

new shelter, rails, half pipe and

beginner half pipe.

The work in Darfield is expected

to be completed by the end of

winter.


Changes to tenancy laws

rental homes to have smoke

alarms from 1 July 2016.

✔ Installed alarms

✔ Existing alarms working

✔ Checked & changed batteries

Landlords are responsible for installing smoke

alarms before 1 July and checking they’re

working at the beginning of each tenancy.

Tenants are responsible for changing

batteries and letting their landlord know if

there are any problems with smoke alarms

during their tenancy.

Are you ready to play your part

in Canterbury’s water management?

We’re looking for people who want to make a difference. We’re

looking for people who have expertise and want to help find solutions.

If this sounds like you then applications to join the Regional Water Management

Committee are now open. The committee is refreshing its community membership

for the first time since 2013 to ensure new perspectives are reflected.

What is the Regional Water Management Committee?

The committee is a key advisory group made up of representatives from councils,

Rūnanga and the community.

It provides strategic water management advice to councils and industry groups

to deliver the multiple targets of the Canterbury Water Management Strategy.

The committee’s work helps ensure we have safe drinking water supplies,

sustainable farming practices, clean rivers and streams, as well as protecting

environmental, cultural, and recreational values.

It’s all about warmer, drier, safer homes – recent law changes

mean that working smoke alarms will be compulsory in all

residential rental properties from 1 July. There will also be a staged

process that requires insulation be installed. Social housing

(where tenants pay an income related rent) must be insulated by

1 July 2016 and all other rental homes by July 2019.

For more information or an application form please visit

www.ecan.govt.nz/canterburywater or phone Environment

Canterbury Customer Services on 0800 324 636.

Applications are due by 4:00pm, 5 July 2016.

Lemonwood Grove School is

on target for 2017

Construction is well underway on the new Lemonwood

Grove School – Te Uru Tarata, which is due to open at

the beginning of February 2017.

It is anticipated that between 80 and 100 students

from years one to eight, will be enrolled in its first year.

The students will join a mini campus that will be shared

with the relocated Waitaha School from 2018.

The two schools will have opportunities to collaborate

educationally, share certain facilities, and join together

for selected events. However, each school will have its

own governance and Board of Trustees.

“This collaboration will help instil in our students a

broader understanding of individuals and engender an

ability to relate to others,” explains newly appointed

foundation principal, Sean Bailey. “This fits with

Lemonwood Grove’s ethos of building relationships

within communities.”

Sean is excited about the state of the art approach

taken in the planning and building of Lemonwood

Grove School. Its ‘learning landscapes’ will have the

flexibility for a variety of learning experiences, both

inside and outside which will support collaborative

teaching and learning. There are also spaces designed

for parent and community interaction.

Considerable work has already been undertaken to

ensure that the new school has leading edge student

systems in place and its Establishment Board of

Trustees appointed by the Minister of Education

has been operational since August 2015. They are

supported by Ministry of Education appointed

governance facilitator, Maureen Kerr.

“The school’s facilities have been designed for

different types of learning activities so students can

work in groups or independently on personalised

programmes to achieve the school’s vision – The best

of you, as you,” explains Sean.

Lemonwood Grove School’s emerging core values

and beliefs go beyond the student to include staff,

management, parents, those governing the school

and the wider community.

This month the Establishment Board of Trustees met to

review these based on feedback from the community

and feel they reflect the initial direction for the school.

• Grit (initiative, determination, resilience)

• Responsibility (self, others, environment, well being,

empathy, inclusiveness)

• Integrity (honesty, truthfulness, doing the right

thing, empathy, gratefulness)

• Thinking (curiosity, creativity, problem solving,

reflective questioning, passion)

“Our school values and beliefs will be integrated into

our teaching and learning programme and will be

promoted across the whole school community,” says

Sean.

Lemonwood Grove School has also developed a school

graduate profile for its students. This aims to prepare

each student for future learning at high school and

into the workplace. It is based on research undertaken

that identified skill sets young people will need in the

future. Throughout their learning, students will be

encouraged to solve problems, think and be creative,

as well as participate, interact and work with others.

To learn more about the new Lemonwood Grove

School – Te Uru Tarata, you can view their website at:

www.lemonwoodgrove.school.nz, or email Sean Bailey

at principal@lemonwoodgrove.school.nz.

Enrolments will begin around August.

Pre-enrolment meetings can be arranged by emailing

Climber who perished leaves

Annie McGregor has

kept a boot which

belonged to her

mountaineering husband

John Harrison for almost

50 years after he lost his

life on Mt Rolleston in

one of New Zealand’s

worst climbing disasters.

Now a bronze replica

of that boot and a

plaque will be placed

at Arthur’s Pass to mark

the anniversary of the

tragedy. Tom Doudney

reports . . .

ARTHUR’S PASS is the scene

of both the happiest and saddest

moments of Annie McGregor’s

life.

It was here, in 1960, that she

married the love of her life,

accomplished Christchurch

mountaineer John Harrison, in

the little chapel by State Highway

IN MEMORIAL: Annie McGregor holds a plaque honouring the

Harrison was killed in an avalanche

during an unsuccessful

attempt to rescue four climbers

trapped on Mt Rolleston.

The climbers who perished on

the mountain were Christchurch

man Bruce Ferguson, 19; Colin

Robertson, 20, of Invercargill;

and Englishmen Michael Harper

and Jeffrey Wilby, both 21.

The death toll of five was the

second highest for a single incident

in New Zealand’s mountaineering

history.

memorial in the shape of one of

Mr Harrison’s boots created by

artist Sam Mahon.

Mrs McGregor was 27 when

Mr Harrison died and their

daughters Sue and Wendy were

just three and five.

Now 76, Mrs McGregor said

she still thought often of her

husband and the events that led

to his death.

The boot was one of several

of his possessions she still had

and the idea for a memorial was

already in her head when she

was told that 50th anniversary

commemorations were being

planned.

She intended the memorial to

be placed on a flat rock behind

the Arthur’s Pass Chapel, beside

a pathway leading to a “contemplative

corner” by a waterfall.

“Having an occasion to

remember it and to make sure

that the boot is on the rock is

pretty important to me because,

for all these years, I have felt

as though I have failed to do

something, failed to leave his

mark where it was most needed,”

she said.

Although just 34 when he

died, Mr Harrison had become

one of the leading New Zealand

climbers of his generation,

having made several notable first

ascents and other climbs in the

Southern Alps in the 1950s.

boot mark on Arthur’s Pass

He also took part in notable

expeditions to Antarctica and

the Himalayas. In 1961, while

a member of the Mt Makalu

expedition led by Sir Edmund

Hillary, he had played a key role

in saving a fellow climber, Pete

Mulgrew, who became ill at a

high altitude.

As members of the New Zealand

Alpine Club, Mr Ferguson

and Mr Robertson were known

to Mr Harrison, who was chairman

of its Canterbury-Westland

section. When he heard they

had failed to return from their

climb and that bad weather was

moving in, he volunteered for the

search party.

“He said to me that he couldn’t

not be there to try and save them

because they were both really

nice, important young climbers

of tomorrow,” Mrs McGregor

said.

“He was in business on his

own account at that stage as an

artist and designer and he really

probably couldn’t afford to leave

his desk and rush off up a mountain

for a week, but there was no

way he wasn’t going to pull his

weight.”

And so it was that Mr Harrison

was among a group of eight

searchers camped in atrocious

conditions on the mountainside

when they were buried by an

avalanche.

Two of the searchers, Pete

Squires and Ian Gardiner,

dug themselves out and worked

frantically to reach the others.

The tent containing Mr Harrison,

John Wilson and Norman

Hardie was the last to be

reached. All three were pulled

unconscious from the snow but

only Mr Wilson and Mr Hardie

could be revived.

Mrs McGregor still remembers

the visit from the policeman who

told her that Mr Harrison had

died.

“I woke up at 4am in the

morning and knew there would

be a knock on the door. Now,

how you know something like

that, I’m damned if I know, but

I was sitting up in bed waiting

for somebody to knock on the

door and there was the knock,”

she said.

“I said to him, ‘there has been

an accident, hasn’t there? I hope

nobody was killed’ and he said, ‘I

can’t tell you that’ and I said, ‘but

you actually have to – I’m not

going to let you leave until

you tell me exactly what happened

and who it has happened

to’.”

The search for the four climbers

was abandoned soon after Mr

Harrison’s death. Three of their

bodies were recovered over the

next three years, but Mr Wilby

was never found.

While it was his exploits as a

climber which made Mr Harrison

well known, Mrs McGregor

said he had also been an extraordinarily

good artist.

“He was left handed and he

would just sit there, holding

a conversation and drawing a

picture all at the same moment.

When he was down on the ice for

a few months he did a lot

of Antarctic pictures in pastel.”

•Organisers of the commemorations

are looking

for any surviving relatives of

two of the young climbers

who died – Bruce Ferguson

of Christchurch and Colin

Robertson of Invercargill.

A COLLABORATION between

two local news broadcasters has

Plains FM began live broadcasting

on June 7, running each weekday

from 5.30-6pm.

Plains FM is a community-run

station based at the Ara Institute

of Canterbury.

CTV is locally-owned by

Star Media and has broadcast

regional news since 1991.

Plains FM manager Nicki

Reece said it was a great local

collaboration.

“For us, it’s a natural fit,

because we’re firmly locallybased

with programmes by and

for the community, and this is a

further reflection of what’s going

on in a visual way at CTV.

“So it’s a really nice crosspollination

between two local

entities,” Ms Reece said.

Star Media editor-in-chief

Barry Clarke said the association

with Plains FM was another step

for CTV as it broadens its reach

in the Canterbury region.

AN EXCHANGE programme is

asking families to open

their doors to international

students.

Student Exchange Australia

New Zealand will be sending

high school-aged children to

Canterbury, from as close as

Australia to as far away as Brazil

and France.

The group is a not-for-profit

organisation.

This month, it will be receiving

students from Australia, Brazil,

Denmark, France, Finland, Germany,

Japan and Switzerland.

The new arrivals plan to live

with a host family and attend a

local school for three, five or 10

months.

Hosting an exchange student

allows local families to experience

a foreign culture first-hand,

be exposed to a new language

and pass on parts of their own

culture.

All students have at least basic

levels of English, and would attend

a school in the local area.

Aboriginal student Jaydah is

looking forward to living in New

SELWYN TIMES

about the Maori culture.

Denmark native Caroline, 16,

has been to New Zealand before

and loved it so much she now

In her spare time, Caroline

works as a swimming instructor

and in a bakery.

Nathan, 16, is a French student

who enjoys school, tennis, handball

and skiing.

He loves hiking in nature and

is looking forward to discovering

New Zealand and meeting new

people.

But a host family isn’t only doing

the student a favour by giving

them a roof over their head, as

told by the Stuart family.

They hosted Danish student

Post-quake health services in

The Canterbury health

system has been

put under massive

pressure postquake,

with budgets

cut and demands

soaring. Emma-Jane

McLennan takes a

look at how the health

system operates, and

what it deals with on a

daily basis

EVERY DAY, $3.8 million is

pumped into Canterbury’s public

health system.

It is a fully-integrated network

with six specialised hospitals,

each working in with smaller

clinics, after-hours surgeries, rest

homes and GPs.

But while it is internationally

recognised as a leading integrated

health system, it is still suffering

post-quake, Canterbury

District Health Board planning

and funding

team leader

Greg Hamilton

(left) said.

“This system

remains under

pressure. After

five years both

the mental

health and general health work

forces are showing signs of strain

in their efforts to provide the

best service for our population.”

Every day, 323 new patients

walk through the doors of

various CDHB hospitals around

Canterbury.

That’s about 256 at Christchurch

Hospital, 22 at Burwood

Hospital, 11 at Ashburton

Hospital, eight at The Princess

Margaret Hospital and five at

Hillmorton Hospital.

The hospitals are incredibly

busy.

Lack of funding is greatly

affecting nurses, New Zealand

Nurses Organisation president

Grant Brookes said.

“My colleagues in Christchurch

are feeling really frustrated.

They can see the effects of under

funding in our communities and

they see how it’s affecting their

colleagues at work too.”

There are around 9400 employees

working for the CDHB

and a further 9000 who work

in the community on CDHBfunded

contracts.

As of March 31 there were

more than 950 doctor full-time

equivalents and 2900 nurse fulltime

equivalents employed by

the CDHB. That’s more than 180

more doctors and more than 630

more nurses compared to 2008.

Hospital staff put in an “extraordinary”

effort to make sure

the community’s health needs

are met, CDHB executive director

of nursing Mary Gordon

(below) said.

“In spite of

all the difficulties

since the

quakes, our staff

have ensured

our community

has continued

to receive the

best health care possible. We are

immensely proud and appreciative

of our people’s remarkable

achievements in the health system

over the past five years.”

Funding issues in the health

sector have been highlighted

this year, with the New Zealand

Council of Trade Unions and

the NZNO making calls prior to

the Budget 2016 for extra health

funding – just to keep up with

need.

“Anything less than [an increase

of] $691 million should be

regarded as a cut in funding and

will result in cuts to services,”

the NZCTU said.

Health Minister Jonathan

Coleman (left)

announced an

increase of $568

million in health

funding in the

Budget.

But Mr

Brookes of the

NZNO said the funding is “at

least $33 million short” of what

is required to provide for the

health needs of Cantabrians.

“The Government is also

saying it wants all these new

services but it’s not even funding

the current ones . . . it’s not the

DHB that’s to blame here, it’s the

Government and its disturbing

priorities.”

jumped to 13,872 by 2014.

But the even more significant

move is the increase to 15,670

between 2014-2015.

This increase is reflected across

other mental health statistics.

The jump in numbers of people

needing help for mental health issues

is expected

at the five-year

mark, Mental

Health Advocacy

and Peer

Support manager

Sue Ricketts

(left) said.

“At some point

people just can’t deal with it

anymore, and we’re at that point

now.”

The CDHB annual report

stated that the demand for mental

health services is not abating:

“And we don’t, based on international

research on post-disaster

psycho-social recovery, expect it

to for another five to 10 years.”

And earthquakes haven’t just

affected Cantabrians’ health –

they have significantly damaged

health infrastructure too.

BUSY: Christchurch Hospital had 93,700 patients through its

doors in 2014-15.

The quakes left 200 CDHB

buildings damaged, 14,000

hospital rooms damaged and

caused the loss of 14 per cent of

rest home beds and 106 acute

inpatient beds.

Since May 2013, just about

every ward in Christchurch

Hospital has had to be moved to

allow quake repairs, strengthening

and upgrades to firewalls to

take place.

In its annual report, the CDHB

calls it “hugely disruptive . . .

most likely the largest hospital

move ever undertaken in New

Zealand.”

Burwood Hospital’s recent

redevelopment and Christchurch

Hospital’s ongoing one are

part of the largest ever public

health investment in New Zealand.

In total the redevelopment of

both hospitals will cost more

than $650 million, in addition

to $383 million of an earthquake

related programme of works.

The CDHB has seen this as a

unique opportunity to build back

better, to modernise Christchurch’s

health facilities using a

“long life, loose fit” model.

But while there has been an incredible

amount of work to repair

and upgrade hospitals, there has

also been a lot done outside of it

through the Canterbury Clinical

Network.

Its main aim is to keep people

well and in their homes, with a

range of strategies which ultimately

treats more than 30,000

in the community who would

otherwise have to go to the emergency

department or be admitted

to hospital.

Its work has resulted in Canterbury

having an acute admission

rate 30 per cent below the national

average – which means in

Canterbury you are more likely

to have your health needs met

in the community, rather than

hospital, than anywhere else in

the country.

The CDHB says while its environment

has provided challenges,

it has also provided opportunities

to re-orientate its system.

“The Canterbury health system

is internationally recognised as a

leading integrated health system

. . . [but] in spite of many positive

changes to services, this system

remains under pressure.”

Neighbourly under fire

for information sharing

• By Gabrielle Stuart

PRIVACY CONCERNS have

been sparked by the policies

of community network site

Neighbourly, around sharing of

user’s personal information.

To create an account with the

site, people need to give a full

name, address and contact details,

and are also asked to give a

driver’s licence number.

But under the privacy policy,

users’ personal information can

be shared with any of Neighbourly’s

partners.

The partners include businesses

like BP, Vodafone, Contact

and AMI as well as councils

and community groups and

its major shareholder, Fairfax

Media.

But Neighbourly

co-founder

Casey Eden (left)

said that would

not happen without

the permission

of users.

“An example of when member’s

details might be shared

is when a partner is running a

competition. We’ll pass on the

member’s details so this prize

can be distributed, but this is

always outlined in our terms

and conditions.”

He said providing a driver’s

licence was a quick way for

members to verify their profile,

and the contact information was

needed so urgent text message

alerts could be sent around

crime or safety.

Privacy Commissioner spokesman

Charles Mabbett said people

had raised concerns or asked

questions about Neighbourly’s

privacy policy, but that had not

progressed to any formal complaints

or investigations.

He said, ideally, companies

should make keeping your information

private the default and

only share it if people chose to opt

in, but currently that was rare.

He said people needed to be

careful to read the fine print

before they signed up to online

services.

“We would urge people to read

the terms and conditions and see

how their information is being

shared. Then really it comes

down to consent: Do they want

to consent to use that service.”

NetSafe executive director

Martin Cocker said there were

often complaints through its

The Orb online crime reporting

service from people who had

signed up to a service and ended

up being contacted by other

businesses.

He said the privacy policy

was honest in saying how the

information was shared, so

the responsibility was on users

to be aware of what they were

agreeing to, and then decide if

they were comfortable using the

service.

SELWYN TIMES

New zoning confirmed for Rolleston

and Lincoln Town Centres

Changes affecting the zoning of Rolleston and Lincoln town centres have now

been adopted and included in the Selwyn District Plan.

The changes were made in response to the requirements of the Land Use Recovery Plan. The plan seeks to ensure that the residential,

commercial and industrial business needs of Greater Christchurch are met. Action 27 of the plan required the Council to change the District

Plan to identify and provide for Key Activity Centres at Rolleston and Lincoln and to ensure there was sufficient industrial land. Proposed

changes to meet this action were consulted with the community last year. The changes and submissions, made by community members

and stakeholders, were considered by independent commissioners who made the final recommendation to Council. Any significant

changes made by commissions are explained under the precinct description.

Rolleston’s population is expected to grow from around 13,000 now to reach 20,000 in 2030 and Lincoln’s population will increase from

5,000 to over 10,000 in that time.

One of the Council’s objectives in its Selwyn 2031- District Development Strategy is to encourage more businesses in Selwyn so people

have better access to local services. Currently over 70% of local expenditure on shopping is spent outside Selwyn.

The changes identify areas of both Lincoln and Rolleston town centres as Key Activity Centres. These are focal points for commercial,

community and service activity. The Key Activity Centres will allow more shops and businesses to locate in Rolleston and Lincoln to provide

people with a wider range of retail stores, places to eat and local services, and to help create more local jobs. For Rolleston the changes will

help implement the ideas in the Rolleston Town Centre Masterplan.

The Key Activity Centres have been divided into precincts to allow activities to locate in areas where they are considered most suitable.

Existing shops or properties can continue to operate as the activity rules only apply if the activities at a property changes or if a site is

redeveloped. The different precincts allow some activities to establish more easily than others so not all types of activities will be permitted

in some precincts. The changes also seek to protect the viability of these Key Activity Centres by restricting some types of retail and

commercial activities from locating outside the Key Activity Centres. The provisions do allow for some commercial and retail activities

outside of the Key Activity Centres. A limited amount of large format retail is allowed in the Rolleston Industrial Area on the corner of Jones

and Hoskyns Roads. This may develop to be similar to Tower Junction in Christchurch.

Where an activity is not permitted it may still be able to establish if a resource consent is granted. The consent process would consider the

effects of the activity and whether these are compatible with the surrounding area. An urban design assessment would be undertaken on

new building designs to check that buildings display good design that is appropriate for their setting.

An aerial view of part of the core retail area, with the new library, shopping and

playground area planned to occupy the north east section of Rolleston Reserve.

Artists impression of how the north east corner of Rolleston Reserve could look

once developed. The site could host a range of shops, places to eat, community

facilities and a new playground.

Rolleston Key Activity Centre

Precinct 1

Core Retail Area

This area would become Rolleston’s town centre hub shopping area and the mix of shops would

encourage people to visit this area for business and recreation. The community anchor/town square

precinct and Rolleston Reserve nearby will also attract people to the retail area to create a vibrant

town centre.

This precinct provides primarily for the establishment of retail stores, offices and ancillary offices,

food and beverage shops, commercial/business services, trade suppliers, furniture equipment and

lighting suppliers, education facilities and pre-schools, health care services, and public transport

facilities/parking buildings.

The development of retail and commercial spaces would be funded by developers. The development

of retail and commercial spaces could start from 2018/19 depending on the Reserve Exchange

process, the relocation of existing sports activities to Foster Park (see Precinct 6 section) and

interest from developers. Development is planned to take place over a number of years.

Change from original proposal: following submissions the commissioners decided to create Precinct

8 which was originally part of the core retail area, as a separate precinct for a community facility and

town square. This change is minor as the provisions of Core Retail 1 already allowed this to happen

but it was not a specific requirement.

Precinct 2

Retail Fringe Area

Two separate retail fringe areas are identified at the Rolleston Community Centre site and along some land

west of Rolleston Drive. These are transitional areas between the town centre and living areas.

This precinct provides primarily for the establishment of offices and ancillary offices, food and

beverage shops, health care services, visitor accommodation (motels/hotels), community facilities,

emergency services, education facilities and pre-schools.

Change from original proposal: following submissions the commissioners decided to remove a small

number of properties between Rolleston Community Centre and Othello Drive from this precinct, and

determined that large format retail should be allowed here.

Precinct 3 Precinct 7

Office Precinct Community Precinct

The Rolleston Town Centre Masterplan identifies Precinct 7 as a Community/School area. Precinct 7

was originally known as Precinct 3* and formed part of Precinct 3 but with a note that it could be for

future educational or recreational purposes. The commissioners recommended that area be named a

Community Precinct, rather than Office Precinct, in order to give a clearer indication of the intended

use of the precinct.

These precincts provides primarily for the establishment of offices and ancillary offices, food and

beverage shops, trade suppliers, health care services, visitor accommodation (motels/hotels), public

transport facilities/parking buildings, community facilities, education facilities and pre-schools.

Change from original proposal: See comments above. The commissioners also decided that large

format retail should be allowed in Precinct 3 and 7 but service stations, garages and workshops should

not be permitted in these precincts.

Precinct 6 includes the refocused Rolleston Reserve which has the potential to be transformed into

a vibrant, high amenity urban park. This area’s underlying zoning will remain Living 1 but with some

provision to provide for other activities compatible with an urban park. As part of the development a

playground and youth park, tree lined paths, pedestrian and cycle path, a water feature, and car park

are being considered. A consultation process with the community, covering what changes people

would like to see to the reserve, is planned for next year. Funding for the reserve enhancement has

been included in the Council’s Long-Term Plan.

This part of Rolleston Reserve will retain its reserve designation. A video showing how Rolleston

Reserve could look in the future can be viewed at www.selwyn.govt.nz/rollestontowncentre

The Council is proposing, through an exchange process, to allow part of Rolleston Reserve to have

its reserve status removed to allow for development in Precinct 8 and those parts of Precinct 1 and 2

currently within the reserve to enable retail and community facilities to locate at those sites and help

create a lively town centre area. In exchange Foster Park would be designated as a reserve, to provide

additional reserve land and compensate for the loss of sports space. Foster Park will become the

largest sports park in Selwyn and many sports activities will take place at Foster Park in the future.

Consultation on this proposal will take place this winter.

Change from original proposal: following submissions the

commissioners decided to remove two properties behind Tennyson

Street from this precinct. Commissioners also decided that small

format retail should be allowed and that no car parking should be

provided on site (with parking to be provided by Council public

parking facilities).

Precinct 8

Community Anchor/Town Square Precinct

This is the site of a new library and town square, and some retail

stores. Other features like a community pavilion or water feature

could also be developed (future consultation is planned on this

as part of Rolleston Reserve’s redevelopment). Funding for the

development of community facilities has been included in the

Council’s Long-Term Plan. This area similar to Precinct 1 but allows

for the establishment of a 4,500m2 community facility and 30x20

metre town square, to reflect the intentions of the Rolleston Town

Centre Masterplan.

This precinct provides primarily for the establishment of community

facilities, small and large format furniture, lighting outlets and retail

stores, supermarkets and department stores, offices, food and

beverage shops and commercial services.

Change from original proposal: see changes under Precinct 1.

A new library is part of Precinct 8. This will encourage people to visit the new

Kidfest bookings now open

for school holiday fun

The ever popular KidsFest is returning to Selwyn in July. More than 50 events and activities for

children will be happening in Selwyn as part of KidsFest, which runs from 9-23 July during the

school holidays.

“KidsFest once again has lots of great events to keep kids entertained these coming holidays,”

says Selwyn District Council Recreation Advisor Dave Tippett. “KidsFest events have been very

popular in the past so we encourage Selwyn parents to book into events early to make sure

their children don’t miss out on their choice of activities.”

“Planned activities in Selwyn include discomania, a high ropes challenge, moviemania, a kids

market, makerspace LEGO®, a Bee-Bot robot challenge, Doggy Dayz at libraries and fun

activities at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre including Paddle Boats, Aqua Handball and Volleyball,

and the inflatable Obstacle Course.”

Other local KidsFest events include keyboard and landscape lessons, flippa ball sessions, a

play like a DJ session, Sport Suzie’s Circus, Comedy and Chaos Show, miniature pony fun, ski

fun, stargazing sessions, brick building, craft sessions and lots more. Selwyn families can also

attend KidsFest events in Christchurch and Waimakariri.

Local KidsFest events are organised by community groups, the Council, local businesses and

facilities. Some events are free and others are low cost.

For information on KidsFest events and bookings visit www.kidsfest.co.nz, or pick up a booklet

from Selwyn Libraries, Lincoln Event Centre, Rolleston Community Centre or Selwyn Aquatic Centre.

Lincoln Town Centre Plan adopted

Council recently adopted the Lincoln Town Centre Plan. The plan focuses on creating a vibrant town

centre for Lincoln with pedestrian friendly street frontages, attractive public spaces and improved safety.

One of the key concepts in the Lincoln Town Centre plan is to re-allocate the space on Gerald Street,

which is currently predominantly designed as a through route for traffic to create an attractive, safe

public space for all road users. Sufficient space for cyclists on Gerald Street is currently missing and the

development of safe cycle space has been identified as the number one priority by the community during

public consultation.

In order to create the cycleways to improve safety for cyclists, 75 existing car parks will be removed from

Gerald Street. The existing angle parks outside the shops in the town centre will remain. The Gerald Street

carparks will be re-located over time to enable dedicated and safe cycle lanes from the town centre to

the University to be created. The Gerald Street cycle lanes will link to the Rail Trail and other recently

completed cycle ways between Lincoln and Springston and Rolleston. The timing of the relocation of

the Gerald Street car parks will be staged so that this only occurs once alternative parking areas are

operating. Other methods to make the town centre safer and a better place to be include lower speed

limits and more pedestrian islands for improved pedestrian safety.

As part of the plan the Council has identified that it plans to reconfigure mostly unmarked on-street

parking spaces in the town centre, which currently have capacity for around 121 vehicles to provide

parking for 143 vehicles. These car parks will be better defined and marked in parking precincts to be

established on Lyttelton Street, Maurice Street and West Belt (North and South) – all connecting streets to

Gerald Street. In addition to this this a new off street communal car park is planned with capacity for 40

vehicles near the town centre. The Council also recently developed a new 60 vehicle off street communal

car park at Lincoln Library which is situated centrally on Gerald Street.

Are you ready for snow?

June marks the official start of winter and this brings the risk of snow.

Snow is common in Selwyn during winter and has the potential to

cut off power and telephone services and close roads.

Selwyn District Council Emergency Manager Officer Ryan O’Rourke

says that now that winter is here, it is important for people to ensure

their household is well prepared to cope with snow. “The further

away from a main town you live, the better your preparations need

to be as you could be housebound for several days until roads can

be cleared and power restored. However a large snowstorm could

cut power to main towns like Rolleston, Lincoln and the surrounding

areas so everyone needs to be ready to cope with that situation.”

To prepare your household for snow you can take the

following steps:

· have several days’ food and bottled water, medication and a first

aid kit, a portable battery operated radio, torch, matches, baby

food and supplies, cutlery and can opener, and warm clothing

stored in a waterproof container

· have an alternative power source and another way of cooking food

if the power fails

· if you have a fireplace, check you have several days’ supply of

firewood or coal

· keep your vehicle fuel tank near full to avoid ice in the tank and

fuel lines

· on the farm; plan where livestock can be moved to shelter and

ensure there is enough dry feed. Consider how you would supply

stock water if the power is off. Most animal deaths in winter

storms are from dehydration

· register online to join Selwyn Gets Ready at www.selwyn.

getsready.net. The website helps communities to prepare for an

emergency by providing information on who needs assistance in

an emergency and what skills and resources (like generators and

first aid skills) are available in your neighbourhood

· get to know your neighbours and find out whether they need

assistance, or could help you, in an emergency.

If a snow storm hits then:

· listen to your radio, or television, and visit the Council website,

www.selwyn.govt.nz, for weather reports and information

· ensure you drink enough water and watch for signs of frostbite or

hypothermia. Wear layers of loose, light, warm clothing

· keep rooms well ventilated when using gas or kerosene heaters to

avoid toxic fumes building up

· bring pets inside and move stock to shelter

· report broken utility lines to Orion

· check on your neighbours and help them out if needed

· avoid driving unless absolutely necessary. If you have to travel

take snow chains, warm clothing and essential emergency items in

case you become stuck

· if you are caught in your vehicle in a snowstorm, stay there and

make yourself visible by tying a bright-coloured cloth to your radio

aerial and keep the inside light on.

On the roads this week

Footpath work will take place on Levi Road to complete a short

missing link. Gravelling and road reshaping work will take place on

Wabys Road with one lane closed for works and traffic controls

operating. Road levelling work is also planned along James Street

with the road staying open.

A new shared walkway/cycle path continues to be developed

between Coalgate and Glentunnel.

Work to extend Broadlands Drive to connect to Springston Rolleston

Road and install a new roundabout at the junction is continuing.

Power undergrounding and streetlight installation work is continuing

on Lowes Road - in preparation for kerb and channel and footpath to

be laid - and on Tennyson Street in preparation for a new roundabout

being installed on the Kidman Street/Tennyson Street junction.

The council has published a series of booklets outlining how ratepayers in our larger townships

contribute to local and district-wide services and facilities.

If you’re a ratepayer, you’ll know that each year residents make an annual rates contribution to Council,

which pays for a wide range of activities in your area and in Selwyn. Ratepayers all contribute a different

amount of rates, through a mix of general and targeted rates. Using the booklet’s rates calculator you

can work out how your rates contribute to activities in your township and our district.

Booklets are available covering Darfield, Kirwee, Leeston, Lincoln, Prebbleton, Rolleston and West

Melton. You can also view a copy from www.selwyn.govt.nz/rates or pick one up from the library

nearest your town. The diagram below shows how the Council spends our overall rates income.

Row brews after

shield game

• By Gordon Findlater

A ROW is emerging over

whether Lincoln Rugby Club has

lost the Murray Cooper Shield,

which they’ve held for more than

10 years.

Management from the

Ellesmere Rugby Union will meet

tonight to figure out who holds

the shield after Saturday’s game.

A problem emerged after

the game, where Burnham/

Dunsandel/Irwell defeated

Lincoln 21-14, leaving the visitors

believing they had captured the

shield from Lincoln.

The rules around the shield

stipulate that it is up for grabs

whenever the holders play

another Ellesmere team at home

during round-robin games but

not finals.

The grey area surrounding

Saturday’s game is that it wasn’t

a final game or a round-robin

match.

Both teams were eliminated

in the quarter finals of the

Combined Country rugby

competition. This meant

Saturday’s game was not a finals

match but a match to decide 7 th

and 8 th position.

Burnham coach Lance Ball is

hopeful his side will be rewarded

with the trophy after the team

went into the weekend’s game

believing they were playing for

the shield.

Ellesmere Rugby Union

President, Stuart Boon has been

in contact with both parties and

expects a decision to be made at

tonight’s meeting.

ROW: Lincoln

Rugby Club

first division in

action earlier

this year. There

is question

mark over

whether they

have lost the

Murray Cooper

Shield.

VICTORIOUS AGAIN: Lincoln High School celebrate their recent win against Cashmere High

School, securing the Connetics Challenge Shield ​

Lincoln HS in form

• By Gordon Findlater

LINCOLN HIGH School is the

team to beat in the Connetics

Schools Premier 1 st XI football

competition after remaining

unbeaten after six rounds.

Lincoln secured their sixth

straight win to start the year last

Wednesday defeating Cashmere

High School 1-0.

Last week’s victory was made

even more significant with the

acquisition of the Connetics

Challenge Shield a piece of

silverware that is up for grabs

during each round of the competition,

regardless of a match

being played at home or away.

The nature of the shield means

that Lincoln won’t have long to

celebrate the acquisition, their

first defence will take place this

Wednesday when they play

Papanui High School.

The next goal for the team is

to secure qualification for the

New Zealand Secondary Schools

Football Championships which

is a tournament featuring the

top 32 schools in the country.

This will be held in Papamoa in

early September.

Kick-off in tomorrow’s Connectics

Challenge Shield match

is at 5.30pm from Christchurch

Football Park.

Food

Cooking for the creative crowd

• By Gabrielle Stuart

LUNCHES AT XCHC are

something quite different.

The building – Exchange

Christchurch – serves as a hub

for creative people in the city:

singers, fashion designers, architects,

tech developers and artists.

Aliesha McGilligan’s cafe

is a place where they all come

together, alongside many people

from the wider community,

from tradies to foodies.

“People come from all over

town, and people travel. I’ve had

people walk an hour and a half

to get here,” she said.

Her goal is to create something

unique, with communal tables,

a fixed, seasonal menu each day

and all locally-sourced ingredients,

from the fresh-baked bread

to the milk and produce brought

from local farmers.

But creating something different

is nothing new to her.

Her first foray into the kitchen

was as a kitchen-hand at The

Tap Room, where she worked

her way up until she earned

responsibility for making the

desserts.

“It’s not just about reading a

recipe, you had to be quite agile,

and I really thought about the

science of it. I started to do the

desserts better than their chef

did, so they told me to put on

some whites.”

Since then, she has worked in

all kinds of kitchens – from fine

dining restaurant Matterhorn

in Wellington, where she said a

puree could be worked on for 15

hours to make sure it was shiny

enough, to open-air stalls at the

Christchurch Farmers’ Market

and The Commons.

At 3pm on the day of the February

22 earthquake, she was set

to sign a contract to work with

chef Simo Abbari at the Crowne

Plaza.

But Restaurant Simo’s was

badly damaged in the earthquakes

and then demolished.

“It was months until I could

help Simo restart his new restaurant,

and we went from opulence

to essentially a carpark next to

Domino’s,” she said.

Her next move was to Riccarton

House, working at the restaurant

and at the Christchurch

Farmers’ Market.

“It was a dream job, really. As

a young chef, you are always told

do this recipe, do this recipe,

weigh this out, but when I got

there they said what menu are

you putting out today? So they

LOCAL INGREDIENTS: Aliesha McGilligan prepares a seasonal

menu at XCHC.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

gave me a chance to start with

the idea, to bring myself to the

plate.”

She went on to work for owner

Jamie Bennett for four years,

helping him to open his Passengers

& Co and Town Tonic

restaurants.

On her weekends off she

worked on her own projects,

selling fresh ice cream at the

farmers’ market and wood-fired

pizza at The Commons through

Gapfiller.

That often meant she worked

seven days a week, but she said

she loved it.

That was where she met XCHC

founder Camia Young, who

recruited her to open the cafe.

She said the community she

discovered there was amazing.

“It shines through, you can

taste it, you can feel it and it’s

palpable. Customers are excited

about it and we feed off that.

For me, it’s about the whole

ecology of the whole process. I

don’t want to be just consuming,

I want to be supporting my

friends who happen to be the

best organic farmers in town.”

She said growing up without

much on the east side of town

helped to shape her vision for

the cafe.

She was inspired by her

mother’s “hospitable spirit” as

she made hearty, satisfying food

on a small budget, and by her

foodie uncle who gave her an

insight into a different world of

food.

That also fed into the way

she managed her team, and her

goals for the future of the cafe.

“I would like to work on a new

model for hospitality. It’s workers

need to be treated better, my

team needs to be supported with

a living wage, and nutritious

food and enough time to enjoy

it, and encouragement and support

for personal development.”

SELWYN TIMES

Now is the time for a stocktake

Rachel Vogan talks

you through what

to be doing in the

garden now

WITH THE short sharp days

ahead, maybe start putting aside a

reading pile or creating a to-do list

or wish list for the garden.

Hunt out old gardening books or

take a trip to the library for ideas

and inspiration.

Gather up seed catalogues as

they come in and mark off what

crops you would like to try next

season. It is a good time to do a

stocktake in the garden shed and

check over garden tools and do

some maintenance.

And while you are at it, check

those seeds you have saved earlier

on to make sure they are not

mouldy and label them clearly

so you know what they are when

you find them in the drawer next

spring.

FRUIT

Do you have a favourite fruit that makes

you smile or even salivate when it

ripens each year? At the moment, go-to

fruits are feijoas and the New Zealand

cranberry (Chilean guava).

These highly aromatic and hardy

evergreen fruits can be grown in

orchards or planted as ornamentals in

garden borders, both coping well with

trimming. When picking feijoas leave

them to fully ripen on the tree, waiting

for them to fall on the ground is the

easiest way to harvest them.

Camellia ‘Congratulations’.

VEGETABLES

Dig up any potatoes still in the ground,

especially in areas where the soil can

become soggy over winter. Mature

potatoes that sit in moist soil will resprout

and become inedible.

The skin on pumpkins and gourds will

be tightening up to protect the flesh over

months to come; leaving them outdoors

to soak up a few frosts will help sweeten

the flesh. Remember always to leave

the stalk or handle on pumpkins when

harvesting. Plant broad beans before it

gets too cold.

CAMELLIAS

Furnished with flowers at this time of

year, keep sasanqua camellias looking

sharp with a drench of Seasol to keep the

root zone active and vibrant. Camellias

do cope with some sun, but just not

intense all-day sun and dry soils, so

they are a good option for adding street

appeal to the drive or roadside.

Question:

Thanks to Tash for her question.

Can you please give me some tips on how to prune my roses? I

don’t want to do it wrong and ruin my rose!

Sure thing! Firstly, roses are pretty

Answer: forgiving plants and won’t suffer too

drastically if you over-prune. The most important thing to remember

is that you need to have sharp secateurs and that pruning is best

done on a dry, clear day. Pruning is beneficial for healthy plant

growth, but also keeps your plant looking neat and tidy. A good

start is to remove the old and weak stems, then cut the stems back

a few buds, making sure that the topmost one remaining is facing

outwards. This is where the new growth will appear, so you want it

growing in a good direction. Once you have done this, have a look

at the rose and see if it looks even and tidy. If not, trim any bits that

look untidy. Once you have finished, make sure that you remove

all of the prunings and rake any leaves up and dispose of them.

You will also need to get a rose spray and spray the whole plant.

These are available from your local garden centre, so pop in and let them

know you are pruning, and they will point you in the right direction. If your

roses are due for a boost of nutrients, add some of our Intelligro Organic

Compost around the plant (leave a ring around the base of the plant) and

give it a water.

Why is pruning so important?

Pruning helps to keep your rose healthy and producing beautiful blooms

each season. By opening up the centre of the plant, you allow for better

airflow and sunlight, which helps

to improve the plant’s resistance to

diseases. Spraying your plant after

pruning helps to seal the new cuts and

protect them from diseases creeping

in, making it easier for your rose to

reward you with beautiful flowers.

If you like picking your own fruit – try feijoas

FEIJOAS ARE an excellent plant

in the home garden.

They make a great fruiting

to a small tree, which will grow

between 2-4m in height.

They are easily trimmed and

maintained and have a green leaf,

Ensuring a safe work place

LEARNINg fIRST aid is not only a part

of ensuring a safe work place, but also

an integral part of our engagement with

the wider community. We all learn the

necessary skills to ensure that in times of

emergency we are able to assist our work

colleagues, but are we able to take these

skills home, into the community or on to the

sports field?

Not all work places are the same and

the injury risk for each place can be wide

and variable. The office attended by

administrators does not carry the same

risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from

a regular ambulance service. It is therefore

essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both

professional

and social.

Take, for example, an office worker who

does not have a high risk work environment

and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial

injuries, or the ability to perform effective

CPR. These skills can be achieved on a

course of eight hours duration and would

generally fit into low to medium risk area.

But take this same person on to a sports field

either as a spectator or player when a higher

level injury occurs. The eight hour course

covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or

26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck

and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia

and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of

the work place, in fact one in three injuries

occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen.

SELWYN TIMES

New Zealand children are twice as likely

to die through injury as children who live

in Australia. They mostly die as a result of

motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home.

fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the

additional unit standard 6400 and provides

a wide knowledge base for medium to high

risk environments. This course covers many

of the skills required to deal with the most

common injuries, such as falls (which can

result in head neck and spinal injuries) and

dealing with complex scenes such as motor

vehicle accidents.

If you are not sure on the course best

suited to your needs, ask your accredited

first aid training provider. They can explain

the course content and give you options that

will best suit your needs. Look beyond the

workplace and consider your family and

your location. Check that you have a good

quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with

replenished items, and that everyone knows

where it is located.

Getting the best

from early sown feed wheat

GrazinG early sown wheat crops has

a way of utilising the extra autumn growth

from the early planting as well as providing

some disease and lodging control.

“Work at the 20 by 2020 site this season

has shown that grain yield of 16.7 t/ha was

nullifying all the benefits of planting earlier.

Over the last season the research team

have been exploring ways of manipulating

the crop canopy to keep it greener through

other options they have considered include

cultivar selection and plant growth regulator

they maintained similar canopy greenness

germplasm more suited to early sowing

Fungal experts gather

information for

publication

SOMe OF the world’s leading experts in

fungal biology and the study of pest and

weed invasions met recently at a workshop

organised by researchers from the

Bio-Protection research Centre.

The aim of the workshop, the first

of its kind in new zealand, was to

stimulate discussion between scientists

from different disciplines and develop a

publication to guide future research in this

area.

Sponsored by the new Phytologist trust

the event attracted more than 70 scientists

for a day of public talks and a four day

writing workshop for key participants.

Fungi have long been recognised for

their diversity of colour and shape, from

mushrooms to moulds and mildews, and

for their important roles in ecosystems.

There is also widespread recognition of

the damage caused by non-native fungal

pathogens to industries and native plant

species.

More recently, researchers are also

recognising the important roles fungi can

Jen play Owens in the spread of other introduced

exotic species. in new zealand, for

example, pine trees were very difficult to

grow, until the introduction of particular

species of beneficial fungi allowed

them to thrive. These fungi were then

eaten by invasive deer and possums and

Ms Owens carried out a field experiment

on a commercial dairy farm measuring

nitrous oxide emissions and soil oxygen

concentrations under urine patches.

their spores thus dispersed outside of

plantations. as a result, wilding pines are

now considered the worst invasive weed in

new zealand, damaging the environment

and becoming expensive to control.

“These systems are complex,” says

Professor dickie, “but by understanding

that complexity we can find new

approaches to management. We can

also recognise that other introduced

plants might be future threats to our

environment, depending on whether

particular fungal associates are ever

introduced.”

in early July, Professor dickie will be

giving a free public lecture on invasive

fungi, plants and animals at lincoln

University as part of the Change Makers

series. More information is available at

Kia people mover with attitude

• By Ross Kiddie

CONTINUED growth in the

sports utility vehicle market

could easily have spelt the end of

the traditional people mover.

However, the manufacturers

which have chosen to stick

with the traditional have been

reasonably well rewarded over

the years, if not in massive sales,

certainly with consistent sales.

In New Zealand we are served

by just a few companies selling

seven and eight-seat vehicles –

Toyota with Previa, Honda do

well with Odyssey and Kia have

recently launched the thirdgeneration

Carnival.

The Carnival has been around

for several years and has been a

popular multi-purpose vehicle,

the new model hasn’t lost sight

of that original concept. The big

eight-seater is versatile and practical,

yet it also has dynamics

which often disguise its bulk and

concept.

It arrives with plenty of choice,

there’s the 2.2-litre four-cylinder

R-series diesel engine which has

earned itself a healthy reputation

for power and economy in other

Kia and Hyundai models, or if

you can’t be bothered with topping

up the road user charges,

there is also the 3.3-litre V6

petrol engine which has given

KIA CARNIVAL: Quintessential people mover.

faithful service throughout the

Carnival’s life.

There are also three specification

levels, EX, Limited and

Premium. The range starts at

$49,990 and ends at $65,990 for

the Premium diesel as tested.

In terms of figures, the twincamshaft,

16-valve diesel has

147kW and 440Nm power output

to consider, it is rated with

a 7.7-litre per 100km (36mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage rating,

meets European emission

targets with 199gm/km and it

accelerates to 100km/h in 9sec.

These are all impressive figures

considering the Carnival weighs

in bulky at over two-tonne.

Drive is channelled through

a six-speed automatic gearbox

through to the front wheels, the

Carnival is two-wheel-drive only,

and that is one of the reasons

why it can’t compete in the SUV

market.

However, it loses out little

elsewhere. The Carnival is practical,

its seating configurations

are many-fold, the centre row is

adaptable for easy access to the

rear, and the rear seats also fold

down deep into a cargo area for

increased interior load space.

Not only does the Carnival

have onboard versatility, access

is also easy with automatic sliding

doors on each side, and a

high-lift rear tailgate.

The R-Series diesel is a tireless

worker, it develops all of its

power low in the rev range at

3800rpm, and if you take into

account that the area of peak

• Price – Kia Carnival, $65,990

• Dimensions – Length,

height, 1755mm

• Configuration: Fourcylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

2199cc, 147kW, 440Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

9sec

• Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

torque lists from 1750rpm to

2750rpm, you don’t need to

constantly work the engine, it is

happy slugging it out at low revs.

Power through the transmission

is well harnessed. Shifts are

quick and smooth, while the

ratios are structured for that

healthy acceleration time and

the ability to sip fuel gently at

open road speed – 7l/100km

(40mpg) at 100km/h with the

engine turning over slowly at

just 1800rpm. The driver can

also choose an active economical

driving mode which eases the

load on the engine.

In Premium specification, the

Carnival is fully loaded with kit,

much of it new-generation specification,

especially for safety

with a host of warning systems

and active mechanisms to keep

the vehicle out of trouble in the

first instance. One such example

is the smart cruise control

system which won’t allow you

to follow the vehicle in front to

closely.

Other features of note include

leather trim, satellite navigation,

triple-zone climate control,

electric sunroof, electric seat

adjustment (also heated and

cooled up front), heated steering

wheel and reversing camera.

I took the test car on my

normal inland route between

Canterbury’s two main river

gorges. At both low and cruising

speeds, the Carnival has quiet

motion and a beautiful ride, the

front-strut and multiple-link

rear suspension has soft spring

and damper rates and, as such,

they absorb ruts and bumps well.

That along with the strongly bolstered

seat cushioning means the

ride is more than plush.

Kia has designed the Carnival

so that it will appeal with its

shape, it has attitude, disguising

well the utilitarian look

that often accompanies multipurpose

vehicles and people

movers.

The new Carnival is just that,

it has been engineered as an

entirely new package, and for

that reason it will be a desirable

choice for those who often travel

in a group.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Assuring your build

From time to time, a building company

lets its clients down by being extremely

unreliable, through poor workmanship, or

due to business failure.

Where a business goes into liquidation,

any deposit and/or progress payments

made before work has begun or during

construction may be lost.

The effect of such an occurrence can

be minimised by choosing a Registered

Master Builder who is accredited with the

Registered Master Builders Association of

New Zealand Inc.

This organisation which was established in

1892 works with its members at a regional

level while having political influence

nationally. Its members are individual

building contractors and apprentices

through to major building companies. Its

role, to promote high quality building work

and share best industry practices with its

membership.

To become a Registered Master Builder,

individuals must: have had at least six

years’ industry experience; possess relevant

trade qualifications; be assessed on their

practical management experience; have

their work checked to ensure it meets a

high standard and client requirements;

and provide evidence from suppliers, bank

and accountant that they are financially

responsible.

Members of the association are able to

provide a ten year standard guarantee for

their workmanship on residential homes

they build, which is backed up by the

Registered Master Builders Association.

A Master Builders’ guarantee covers:

Loss of deposit – the lesser of up to 5%

of the contract price or $20,000 (GST

included), with the option to remove this

cover from the guarantee.

Non-completion of work – the lesser of up

to 10% of the contract price or $40,000 (GST

included), with the option to remove this

cover from the guarantee.

Defective materials and workmanship –

for two years after completion and a Notice

of Practical Completion has been issued.

This relates to substantial premature material

failure or the builder’s failure to comply

with the contract, building consent, law, or

manufacturer’s/supplier’s installation or use

instructions.

Structural defects – these are covered

for ten years from the date of code of

compliance for actual physical damage to the

structural aspects of the building.

Rot and fungal decay – in cases such as

leaky buildings. The Department of Building

and Housing’s ‘building envelope risk matrix’

for weather tightness is applied at the time of

building consent and a score of 12 or lower is

required. The more complex the design, the

greater the risk of a higher score, while high

wind zones can also influence this.

The Registered Master Builders’

Association can advise on whether a building

company is a member of their association

and their membership status. They can be

contacted on 0800 762 328. They can also

provide a list of builders in your area.

The financial risk associated with the

building process can also be minimised by

only making progress payments after the

work has been completed, and if money paid

in advance is held in a safe trust account

until the work it relates to has been

carried out.

Show homeS

the ultimate way to shop around

ACRoSS THe Selwyn district, we are blessed with an extensive array of very good

quality show homes. Building companies build show

homes to demonstrate their workmanship, display innovative design ideas and present a

snapshot into a new and luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the latest in materials, fittings

and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way nothing else can. You can absorb the ambiance

they present and admire the innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes and compare. You can see at a glance features you

would love to emulate or would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you will see the building companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get a good idea of pricing, discover good quality

and value, learn about superior use of space, future-proofing, ongoing maintenance and

long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check out our maps, grab a notepad and pencil and

begin the exciting project of building your own home.
