Gun thefts worry police

• By Andrew King

HIGH CALIBRE rifles,

shotguns and pistols, stolen from

properties in the Selwyn district,

have police concerned.

More than 20 guns have been

stolen between June 10-15 from

properties in Greenpark and

Leeston, including high calibre

hunting rifles.

Detective Karen Simmons said

a number of firearms have been

taken in separate burglaries in

the area.

On Wednesday, a property on

Brookside & Irwell Rd was broken

into and a number of guns

were taken, including a .303 and

.270 rifle, along with a couple of

shotguns.

Eighteen firearms and two vehicles

were stolen from a Greenpark

address on Friday 10 June.

Both vehicles stolen were found

burnt out.

In both firearm thefts, the

weapons were secured in cabinets.

The Selwyn Times understands

another burglary at the

Milton St Challenge petrol station

in Somerfield could be linked with

the Greenpark burglary.

On the same day as the Greenpark

burglary, a property was

broken into on Selwyn Lake Rd

about 3pm. No firearms were reported

stolen from that address,

but household items were taken.

Detective Simmons said at this

stage, there is no link between

the four burglaries, but they are

keeping an open mind.

Leeston Constable Herb

Inwood said it does not appear

the properties had been targeted

because they had weapons.

Police want any information

in regard to people unlawfully

in possession of firearms or gun

safes that have been dumped in

the area.

Anyone with information

should phone the police on

363 7400 or anonymously on

0800 crimestoppers. Constable

Inwood said the serial numbers

of weapons should be recorded

to help police identify recovered

firearms.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News........................3,4, 5 & 7

Growing up in Leeston, I well remember

the old pub that used to

be on the corner. Of course, then

I was far to young to venture in –

but boy did I hear the stories.

Therefore I am delighted to

hear that the Leeston pub is in the

construction phase, after it was

demolished after the earthquakes.

Meanwhile, while the big lads

were warming up to do battle

for the Murray Cooper shield,

our photographer Karen Casey

caught all of the action of the

curtain raiser – the Waihora and

Lincoln rippa rugby battle. Check

out page 20.

This week, reporter Caitlin

Miles caught up with Lincoln

High School student Hannah

Long who is heading to the

United Nations Youth Conference

for the third year in a row. She

also won a scholarship from Coffee

Culture which will help her on

the way.

Have a great week.

Hotel for Leeston under way

LAND

• By Caitlin Miles

IT HAS been a long time

between drinks, but the longawaited

replacement for the

Leeston Hotel, The Crate and

Barrel, is on its way.

Work began at the Market

St site last Monday when the

fences went up.

Owner Craig Bradford, who

also co-owns the Famous

Grouse Hotel in Lincoln, said

the pub would be rebuilt within

12 months, but he is aiming for

an earlier opening in February

for the $3.2 million build.

The community has been

without a pub since the Leeston

Hotel was demolished in 2011,

due to earthquake damage in

the September 4, 2010, and

February 22, 2011, earthquakes.

Mr Bradford said it had been

a bit of lengthy wait for residents.

“Because of the earthquake,

the laws and regulations have

changed. We have to make

sure we comply by it, it’s no

one’s fault in particular,” he

said.

But now work was well underway

on the old English-style

pub.

It will include a motel, backpackers,

restaurant, TAB and

UNDER WAY: Work on

the Crate and Barrel site

has begun, the build is

expected to be completed

in a year. ​

pokie machines, and liquor

store, he said.

“I would like to think the

Leeston community are

wrapped with their new pub,”

“Your pub is your meeting

place, it’s your town hall, it’s

your everything,” he said.

In Brief

FOR DRAINAGE

NETWORK PURCHASED

THe district council recently

purchased land in Lincoln near the

new Rail Trail path. The land is next

to Ellesmere Rd and it allows the

stormwater and drainage network

to continue to be upgraded to cater

for Lincoln’s current and future

growth. This is part of the 17ha of

wetland on Ellesmere Rd which

is part of a system to treat storm

water from parts of the town. To

continue these works, the culvert

under the junction of Edward St

and Ellesmere Rd will be upgraded

to carry a 50 year storm water event

and the downstream channel will

be upgraded to cater for larger

flows and allow spring water and

stormwater to be separated.

DECISION ON ANNUAL

PLAN

The district council will decide

whether or not to adopt the

Annual Plan for 2016/2017 at

the district council meeting on

Wednesday. The annual plan sets

out the council’s financial and

operational plan for the financial

year ending June 2017. The

long-term plan was adopted this

month and describes what the

council plan to do for the next 10

years. This will set in place financial

plans for the second year of the

annual plan.

Warm up at the Home Show

PREPARATIONS FOR The

Star Home & Leisure Show are

ramping up, with two weeks

to go until the doors open.

More than 12,000 people

visited the show last year,

which runs over Friday, Saturday

and Sunday.

The show features the latest

trends and technology for

home building or renovation,

as well as show-only special

deals on everything from spa

pools to campervans.

You can talk directly with

the experts there to get advice

or tips, watch live demonstrations

or take the opportunity

to try new products or technology.

There will also be plenty of

prizes and giveaways on offer,

including a $25,000 central

heating system, thanks to

Central Heating New Zealand.

The show will be held at

Horncastle Arena, July 1-3

from 10am to 5pm, with free

parking available. Entry is $8,

with children under 12 free,

and limited two for one entry

offers available in The Star.

SHOW

IT WASN’T until he spent

several years living in the United

Kingdom that Central Heating

New Zealand director Lyall

Smith realised how cold his

childhood homes had been.

He said most Kiwis would

rather spend money on boats,

spa pools or a second car than

investing in heating their home.

“The Kiwi is an interesting

character. We’re hardy by nature

and we’ve been brought up cold,

so a lot of people say, well, we

don’t need it.

“We go for more interesting

things like spa pools, which have

been a huge success in New Zealand,

more so than in most other

parts of the world.

“People are cold in their

homes so they sit in the spa and

think this is fantastic, when

if their home was warm they

almost wouldn’t need it. We feel

GIVEAWAY: Central Heating New Zealand director Lyall Smith plans to give away a $25,000

central heating system at the show. ​

the tough old Kiwi is missing

out.”

Once central heating was

installed, he said it was more

efficient and a more comfortable

heat than other systems, with

an even heat and no forced air

movement.

But he said the higher up-front

cost of the system, which starts

at about $15,000, put people off.

“People have a budget when

they’re building, and it’s often

the first thing to go. They think,

I don’t need a flash heating

system because I have a new

house, it’ll be warm. But that’s a

fallacy. They’re building an insulated

box, so it’s like a chilly bin.

When it’s cold, it’s really cold.”

The heat source could range

from boilers powered by gas or

diesel, to electric-powered heat

pumps, which pumped water

rather than air, to geothermal

systems.

Although he said the “only

form of truly green heating is a

jersey”, the systems were clean

burning and efficient.

Once the pipes were installed,

the heat source could be

swapped out if new technology

developed.

He planned to have a range of

radiators on display at The Star

Home & Leisure Show.

He said they came in a range

of “funky colours” and styles.

The company will also be giving

away a free central heating system

worth $25,000 at the show.

Selwyn a boom town AWARD

THE ECONOMIC good times

continued to roll for Selwyn,

data shows.

The latest Infometrics

Quarterly Economic Monitor

reported that Selwyn’s GDP

grew by 3.6 per cent in the year

to March – well ahead of the

Canterbury average of 0.8 per

cent and the New Zealand average

of 2.3 per cent.

Selwyn’s GDP had an estimated

value of $1.8 billion.

Infometrics senior economist

Benje Patterson said the district

was reaping the benefits of

expanding industrial zones

and infrastructure within its

boundaries.

Selwyn is bucking the trend

that is occurring in other parts

of Canterbury, where a tapering

off of residential rebuilding

work and losses in the dairy

sector are constraining growth,”

Mr Patterson said.

Retail trade is also booming

in the district and is up by 9.3

per cent for the year to March,

compared to the same period

last year.

Canterbury retail trade grew

by 1.2 per cent and national

trade grew by 2.8 per cent.

Retail trade figures are

sourced from Marketview from

electronic card spending. They

show that $66 million was spent

in Selwyn in the period over

January-March.

High Street Hair owner

Therese Ridden has noticed the

increase in her Leeston business

due to new clients in the area.

“We have noticed the growth,

we have a really loyal client base,

but five per cent of our clients

are new, which is big for us,”

Mrs Ridden said.

Unemployment remains

low in the district at 2.1 per

cent, compared to 5.7 per cent

nationally and 3.5 per cent for

Canterbury as a whole.

Local accommodation providers

were busy with the number

of guest nights stayed in Selwyn,

increasing 11 per cent from

87,282 nights the previous year

to 96,608 nights.

International migration in

Selwyn jumped by 76 per cent

with 367 new international

migrants moving to the district,

up from 203.

Residential building consent

numbers for the year were unchanged

from the previous year.

The value of non-residential

construction consents increased

GROWTH: Selwyn

district GDP has

been experiencing

economic

benefits from

the expanding

industrial zones,

Park (left).

by 13 per cent with consents to

$109 million.

The report indicates Selwyn’s

dairy payout for the 2015/16

season is expected to be $275

million, $16.6 million lower

than the previous season.

Mr Patterson said that, at this

level, most dairy farmers would

be running below their breakeven

point.

“Given these losses, dairy

farmers will have to keep relying

heavily on bank credit lines

and will continue displaying

cautious spending behaviour,”

he said.

In Brief

NOMINATIONS

CLOSE

Nominations for Sensational

Selwyn have now closed but

tickets are still available. The

awards are focused on recognising

and honouring outstanding

Selwyn individuals, community

groups and businesses, for their

work and achievements. The

dinner will be on July 30.

INFORMATION EVENING

An information evening for

people wanting to stand in local

elections will be held at the end

of the month. Anyone who wants

to learn more about local politics

should attend. The evening will

provide more information about

standing for local body elections,

including becoming a councillor,

community board member or

mayor. The event will be held at

the district council headquarters

in Rolleston on Thursday 30 June

from 7pm.

LAKE WARNING

A health warning is still in place

at Lake Forsyth as Environment

Canterbury continues to monitor

its condition. ECan surface water

science manager Tim Davie said

the nodularia concentrations had

declined, but were still above the

level at which health warnings

needed to be in place.

Permanent slow speed signs

• By Hannah Samson-Barry

LINCOLN motorists will be

getting a reminder to slow

down, with permanent digital

speed signs being installed.

Lincoln Community

Committee wanted to install

digital speed signs around

the town to remind people

of the speed they should be

travelling at when entering

the township.

The district council has a

series of the signs on rotation

around the district, but

committee chairwoman Ivy

Harper said they wanted the

signs to stay in Lincoln.

“Our community is

growing so much, we wanted

a regular reminder,” Mrs

Harper said.

The permanent signs will

placed on Edward St, Birchs

Rd and Gerald St.

The committee enlisted the

help of companies around

Canterbury to pay for the

permanent signs as they are

“quite expensive.”

The supply, installation and

commission per sign is $9600,

making a grand total of

$28,800 for all three signs.

Funders included

Fulton Hogan, Lincoln

Developments Ltd, BHL

Trust, Broadfield Estates and

Ngai Tahu.

There is currently a

temporary council sign on

Boundary Rd, one of those

the council has on rotation

throughout the district.

Mrs Harper said that

the committee was keen to

ensure that the signs were

available, so they lobbied

for sponsorship, which was

gratefully received.

The signs are yet to be

installed but now that the

money has been raised it is a

case of getting them installed

and up-and-running.

The signs will be installed

by the district council’s

maintenance contractor, HEB

Construction is expected to

start in about a month.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

think these signs will help

reduce speed? Email your

SAFETY: Permanent vehicle

speed signs will be set

up on roads into Lincoln

in a bid to slow motorists

entering the town.

Fine for using

pepper spray

• By Andrew King

A TOURIST who lashed out with

pepper spray after consuming

alcohol and cannabis at an Arthur’s

Pass backpackers has been fined

$600.

Tourists staying in the hostel had

to flee Simon Christopher Haas who

became paranoid and lashed out

with pepper spray he had brought

into the country from Germany.

Haas admitted one charge of possessing

a disabling substance in the

district court on June 16.

He is from Liechtenstein, a German-speaking,

principality between

Austria and Switzerland.

Haas was arrested on June 9 after

he discharged the spray through a

dormitory to deter what he thought

were his attackers.

Senior Constable Tony Beaumont

arrived to find a number of people

recovering from being blasted with

pepper spray.

“Turns out the man who called

us thought he was being attacked

but was actually just paranoid. The

others were just going about their

business,” he said.

None of the people hit by the

spray have pressed charges.

“He was quite confused when we

turned up. He was unsure why we

were there. He came right after a

few hours,” Senior Constable Beaumont

said.

understanding world politics

Last year I represented France at

the regional competition.

Which country are you representing

this year?

I’m representing Singapore this

year. I didn’t know much about

the country before being tasked

with representing it. I’ve been

there before with my family so all

I really knew about it was that it’s

beautiful.

How long do you get to learn

about the country and what do

you need to know?

I’ve had roughly a month to

gather information about the

country. So things like understanding

the current affairs and

news, understanding the policy

within the political parties and

how the country runs and everything.

Is this the first year you are

taking part in the conference?

It’s the first year I’m taking part

in the national one. UN Youth

does a regional version of the

same style conference and then

a national one. I’ve done the

regional one before but never the

national one so it’s quite exciting.

That sounds extremely full on,

how did you get involved in it?

Yes, it is quite intense. I really

enjoy knowing what’s happening

in the world around me and

understanding world politics. I’ve

always been the girl who sits in

YOUTH MEMBER: Hannah has been a member of the UN

Youth organisation for three years and hopes to continue in

politics at university next year.

class making political or historical

jokes which no one laughs at. In

year 10 my social studies teacher

asked me if I’d be interested

in getting involved in United

Nations Youth Canterbury so I

decided to see what it was like.

I’ve been a member ever since.

What do you enjoy about being

part of the organisation?

When I first joined it was quite

nerve-racking and I wasn’t sure

if I could handle being in a room

with such passionate young people.

I realised I could though and

it’s really great to be in a group of

really like-minded young people

and they get my political or

historical jokes which is great. I’ve

made some truly life long friends

through the organisation.

Why did you decide to apply

for the Coffee Culture scholarship?

I really love Coffee Culture. I

spend a lot of time there. So I was

in there and saw that you could

apply for a scholarship of $500 if

it’s sport, academic or cultural.

I had to fill in some basic questions,

write about my short-term

and long-term academic goals

and how what I’m doing will

benefit the community. So I applied

because I really wanted to

go to the national event but there

is always costs involved. The government

of Singapore has paid for

my flights and accommodation

which is really great, so the $500

from Coffee Culture is going towards

paying for the conference.

How do you think attending

this conference will benefit

Lincoln community?

I want to show everyone that

young people do actually take an

interest in the world around them

and what is happening here and

overseas in terms of politics and

issues. I thought if I go to this

then other young people might

want to go or learn more about

the organisation.

Are you spending a lot of time

preparing for the conference at

the moment?

Actually, as I’m talking to you

I’m applying to go on a 30-day

trip around the United States and

Europe with the United Nations

Youth organisation. It includes

visiting the UN headquarters in

New York which would be really

exciting and eye-opening to be

able to be there.

What do you need to be accepted

into that?

Among other things you need

to have excellence right through

NCEA and tell them what sets

you a part from everyone else.

They really like to show diversity

and having arrange of view

points. If I get in I’ll also need

$9000 so if I get in I’m going to be

doing a lot of fundraising.

This must take up a lot of

time?

I’m on the student council at

Lincoln too, so I was part of the

group that just finished organising

the ball a couple of weeks ago.

Surprisingly it doesn’t take up too

much time.

Do you plan on studying politics

when you leave school?

Yes, I plan to do a double major

in political sciences and either

history or sociology I’m not quite

sure yet and I plan to do a minor

in Chinese.

What would be your dream

job?

I’m glad that what I’ve chosen

to study means I can travel

with my chosen job. Like I don’t

have to work for a government

agencies, I can work for charities

and things like that anywhere

round the world. It sounds really

strange but I would happily put

myself on the front-line in places

like Syria or places in the same

situation and be involved in peace

talks and child protection kind of

things.

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.

Water quality concerns

Mike Glover is

a Springston

South resident

and concerned

ratepayer. In this

column he writes

about the issues

surrounding

Selwyn

waterways.

I read comments in

this column by Selwyn Waihora Water

Zone Committee members Pat McEvedy

and Allen Lim with some interest.

I think they have done a great job

collaborating with Ngai Tahu and implementing

a cultural landscape values management

plan in respect to Te Waihora/

Lake Ellesmere and also in their initiatives

fencing off environmentally important

areas and enhancing others.

However, when it comes to addressing

water quality both in rivers and groundwater

I’m afraid I don’t share their rosy

viewpoint.

For a start – the government rewrote

the water quality regulations in 2014

when they signed off the National Objectives

Framework for water. The limits for

nitrates in water actually allow for more

nitrate pollution in our rivers than we

have already.

Freshwater ecologist Mike Joy in his

book Polluted Inheritance explains how

the NOF allows for 10 times more nitrates

in our rivers than previous guidelines

– ANZECC guidelines were up to 0.61

mg/l, the new bottom-line is a whopping

6.9 mg/l. The NOF also implements new

quality bands – A, B, C and a fail level.

To show just how lax they are, fewer than

one per cent of the rivers in New Zealand

would breach the new bottom line. In fact,

most of them, no matter how laden with

nutrients, still score an A or B.

The Liffey Stream in Lincoln is badly

degraded with nitrates and phosphates

from the very springs where it starts (Lincoln

Waterwatch Test Sept 2015). Under

the NOF it gets a C ranking, even though

SELWYN TIMES

RISK:

The Liffey

Stream in

Lincoln

is badly

degraded

with

nitrates and

phosphates.

with nitrates at 4.4 mg/l, it is too poisoned

to support the many invertebrate species

that should thrive there. When I was at

school a C was a pass – but under these

water quality limits a C kills insect life

– a fail in most people’s eyes. To put it in

perspective the Mississippi and Yangtze

Rivers, two of the most nutrient polluted

rivers in the world, would only score a B

for nitrates under the NOF.

The aquifers that feed the Liffey Stream

springs are shallow like many others in

the district which people use for drinking

water. Some are so polluted with nitrates

that babies, in particular, risk serious ill

health if they drink the water.

Surely it’s only a matter of time before

the deep clean aquifers, so beloved by

Cantabrians for their pristine water, are

polluted too. Ecan admits that the pollution

in the Liffey Stream is from ‘‘agricultural

run off’’ but that’s another story …

Readers respond to

an article about the

possibility of Lincoln

getting a community

park, part of which will be

a skate park

Gavin Eastwick, of

Lincoln – I fully support the

establishment of a skate park in

Lincoln, particularly as I know

my grandchildren would make

great use of it.

However, I, like many that

I have spoken to, are a little

concerned about the most

preferred site.

In December 2013, the

Christchurch City Council

prepared a report on behalf

of Selwyn, outlining potential

youth park sites. Only three

were considered and the site

audit summary suggested

that the area at the end of the

Lincoln Event Centre car park

would be the most appropriate.

However, that audit report did

express some concerns.

They are as follows:

Restricted sightlines. No

through access from Meijer

Drive to Boundary Rd. Rugby

Club access is through the site.

Lighting. Opportunities

for passive surveillance are

limited. Movement of vehicles

in close proximity on busy

days at the Event Centre.

We can already perceive

the danger to children from

Saturday traffic particularly in

the winter months.

Looking back

With limited passive

surveillance the feeling of the

sight being “safe” may be more

perceived than actual.

While there is an extensive

lighting system on the rugby

fields,those lights cannot be

turned onto the proposed site

at will. The location among

other district council-owned

facilities could increase the

likelihood of crime and

antisocial behaviour going

unnoticed.

The area adjacent to the

Rugby Club was assessed by

the Christchurch City Council

capital programme group on

behalf of Selwyn and that team

used national crime prevention

through environmental design

guidelines. Although, of the

three sites considered, this was

deemed the most appropriate,

it was suggested that this site

should be carefully considered

before proceeding. I, like

others, am concerned that

the proposed site is not visible

enough and will never be so

until Meijer Drive is extended

through to Boundary Rd.

Trish Hollis, of Lincoln – I

am a grandmother and fully

agree that a skate park should

be here in Lincoln.

Any activity that children

are keen on should be made

available. I think the ideal

place would be opposite the

Lincoln Event Centre.

SELWYN TIMES

A Big Thank You

To Selwyn’s Volunteers

This week (from the 19th to the 25th of June) is

National Volunteer Week. This year’s themes are

Make time - Whai whā and Thanks for making time -

Kia ora mō tāu whai whā.

Volunteering is any activity that involves offering

your unpaid time, energy and skills for the

greater good. Around 1.2 million New Zealanders

(approximately one-third of the population) are

volunteers.

New Zealand is a leading nation in terms of the

contribution made by our volunteers. A 2008 study

of the New Zealand non-profit sector estimated

that volunteers make up 67% of the non-profit

workforce. This is equivalent to 133,799 full-time

positions.

While we might traditionally think of volunteers as

retired folk giving back to their community – and I

know many amazing individuals in Selwyn who fit

into that category – I was interested to learn that

the people who volunteer the most in New Zealand

are those in the 30-39 age group.

Some of these volunteers may not even realise that

they are volunteering when they offer to help out

on school trips or in school classrooms or fundraise

for their school PTA or preschool. However,

without parents, grandparents and others giving

up their time to help out in these ways, our school

communities would be much more limited in what

they could achieve.

Volunteers create positive change in many areas.

They work in our communities’ churches; provide

health, educational and social services; assist

with sports and recreation; promote arts and

culture; provide emergency services; contribute

to environmental and conservation efforts; and

provide many other important services.

Many people these days feel that they don’t have

Visiting the Kirwee Volunteer Fire Brigade in 2015

enough time to volunteer. Our lives seem busy

with the responsibilities of our paid employment,

running our household, managing our family

obligations and other activities such as sport and

hobbies.

However, some of the busiest people I know are

those that still manage to make time to contribute

as a volunteer. Many volunteers report that they

gain a huge amount from their volunteering, such

as learning new skills, meeting new people and

forming life-long friendships. They also gain a

sense of pride and satisfaction that they are doing

something meaningful and making a real difference

in their community.

So in keeping with the theme of this week, I would

like to thank all of Selwyn’s volunteers for the many

ways in which you make our community a better

place. If you are not a volunteer already, please thank

someone who is for making time to contribute to

our community, and consider whether you could

make time to volunteer yourself.

WINNERS: The Leeston Celtics of Leeston Consolidated School had their first

win this week beating Ladbrooks B 27-0 in basketball. From left to right – Lily

Nimmo, Sam Humm, Lee Crossan, Joel Cockrem, TJ Gibson, Tai Ross and Hope

CTV celebrates 25 years

It may seem hard

to believe but

Christchurch-based

television station, CTV,

celebrated a milestone

last week. CTV News

presenter Jared

McCulloch reflects on

the channel’s history

CTV CELEBRATED 25 years of

broadcasting last week, making

the station the longest-running

regional broadcaster.

The first broadcast was beamed

from TVNZ’s former Gloucester St

studios right here in Christchurch.

National broadcasting operations

were beginning to move north,

leaving an empty studio ready for

something new – something more.

A quick history lesson: For

nearly 30 years, viewers around

the country had two choices when

it came to television.

TV One, launching in 1960

as four channels in four major

centres, run by the public-broadcasting

service of NZBC (which

became TVNZ in 1980) and later

South Pacific Television (becoming

TV2, in 1980) 15 years after

the launch of the first channel.

By 1985, applications for a third

television network were opened.

TV3 winning the warrant in 1987

– on-air by 1989, it was the first

privately-owned, free-to-air TV

station in New Zealand.

And two years later, along comes

little ol’ Canterbury Television.

Sue Wells, sitting at a newlybuilt

news studio, welcomed viewers

across the region to tune into

the new and exciting venture, with

a clear focus of being local.

Former CTV newsreader and

one of the original presenters from

1991 until 1995, Grant Mangin

took hold of CTV programme

First Report.

Some of the faces from the

launch have made their way up the

chain to national and international

levels. Jendy Harper, once showing

us Christchurch’s major snow

dump in 1992 on CTV, has gone

onto to present stories for Campbell

Live.

Others include John Gillespie,

once showing us CTV’s move from

one-studio to another in a television

item, is now the head of news

and current affairs at TVNZ.

Plus Jim Hopkins, Rob Cope-

Williams, David Di Somma,

Raewyn Rasch, Bernadine Oliver-

Kerby and Maryanne Jackson

– who still works at CTV, just to

name a few.

Some of the first guests included

MP for Christchurch Central

Lianne Dalziel, appearing on

current affairs show George

Balani, and mayor at the time,

Vicki Buck.

Now half a decade on a lot has

changed – new faces, new premises,

television switched to digital,

the channel began streaming online

24/7 and the news broadcasts

live every weeknight on Plains FM

96.9.

At one stage, CTV had competition

in the local television

market, with CHTV and NowTV.

Long story short, they eventually

merged into one.

Of course, the most significant

event was a tragic one, when 16

colleagues lost their lives when the

CTV building collapsed during

the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Those fantastic people will never

be forgotten.

Although CTV has changed

hands over the years, it is now part

of Star Media, where it continues

to thrive.

Here’s to all of past and present

staff who made CTV what it is

today, through the thick and thin.

ALBERT BRANTLEY has a

good handshake.

It’s the same handshake he

used when meeting former

United States president Jimmy

Carter, when negotiating tricky

trade deals close to Taliban

frontlines – and now – as he sets

out to do his part in restoring

Christchurch to its former glory.

It is also the first thing I notice

when he ushers me into his

Worcester Boulevard office, eight

storeys up with floor-to-ceiling

views of the Avon River and

Cathedral beyond.

He motions at the busy cityscape:

“It’s beautiful, isn’t it? I

can see it all happening,” he says.

The Canadian speaks with a

gentle accent – one that has stuck

with him through decades lived

in New Zealand and overseas.

He has been to a lot of places,

and he has got a lot of stories to

tell.

He doesn’t tell them much.

This is the first time he has

talked publicly since he was appointed

to the Otakaro role in

April. He usually prefers to get

the work done than talk about it,

he tells me.

We both take our seats, and

Mr Brantley starts his story from

the beginning.

“I was born in Canada, and me

and my older sister were brought

up by our grandmother there.

She [my grandmother] knew

FUTURE PRESIDENT: Jimmy Carter, then the Governor of Georgia, and Albert Brantley at the opening of the ground sloth

display at the University of Georgia Science LIbrary in 1973. (Right): Brantley with wife, Beverley, and daughter Sarah

(aged around 3) in the Empty Quarter, Saudi Arabia.

she wouldn’t always be there for

us, so she was pretty big on selfreliance.”

While still in high school,

Mr Brantley took on a job at a

textile manufacturer to help pay

the bills. This was no ordinary

after-school job – Mr Brantley

would work an eight-hour shift

starting at midnight every night,

then pull off an entire school day

after that.

It was the hard slog that made

him aim high in his career, he

explains.

“I just realised I wanted

something better, so I earned a

scholarship to study geology and

engineering.”

A young Mr Brantley moved

out of home and headed to Georgia

to take up the scholarship – a

move that would shape the rest

of his life.

He was at graduate school

when he got an interesting call.

The state of Georgia was building

a highway, and roadworkers had

unearthed what they thought

was a Spanish cannonball.

Mr Brantley was asked to

investigate, he explains: “What

it actually was, was a hip bone

of a giant ground sloth [a

prehistoric elephant-sized sloth].

It was one of the biggest ever

found.”

Embedded in the ground

underneath the planned

motorway were not one, but

three prehistoric sloth skeletons.

Mr Brantley was tasked with

excavating them (“it would pay

for the rest of my studies,” he

explains) and that’s when the

then-future president Jimmy

Carter stepped in.

“He was the governor of Georgia

at the time, and he said if I

could unearth all three skeletons,

he would pay to get one mounted

at the museum, and he would be

there at the opening,” he says.

So unearth all three Mr Brantley

did, and true to his word, Mr

Carter was at the opening.

The two kept in touch, and to

this day Mr Brantley catches up

with the now-former president

“every now and then.”

SELWYN TIMES Tuesday June 21 2016 17

“Yes, I’ve met with him multiple

times over many years, but I’m

not claiming friendship with

the ex-president, no no. Jimmy

and I come from very similar

backgrounds and have similar

values, we share many of the same

beliefs,” he explains humbly.

The strong morals and ethics his

grandmother taught have stuck

with Mr Brantley and served him

well in business, he says.

“In all my years of business I’ve

done nothing I’ve been ashamed

of.”

After graduate school, he took

a job at a mine working out of

northern Canada. But eight years

of working on the Arctic ice was

“quite enough” he says, with a

small shiver at the thought.

“To be perfectly honest, I was

tired to death of freezing at 60

degrees below zero.”

That’s when he got offered a job

in Perth, Western Australia. He

moved there, and never lived in

Canada again, he said.

“I’ve been a bit of a professional

gypsy ever since.”

He first came to New Zealand

in the late 1980s – serving for

four years as the chief executive

of L&M Mining. During that

time he met his future wife,

Beverley, in Christchurch. They

married soon after, and she travelled

the world with him - always

following the next job.

There’s not a lot of jobs calling

for Mr Brantley’s unique skill set.

He has worked at multi-billion

dollar desalination plants in the

Middle East and Pakistan, where

he was given huge responsibility

to bring together teams and ensure

whole countries had a fresh

water source.

Working across different cultures

and countries has given Mr

Brantley a gentle, but firm leadership

style. He was once described

as “an iron fist in a velvet glove.”

“I know a thousand ways of

saying ‘no’ without offending

anyone. I’ve realised by working

with people that there are many

different views of the world and

they’re not necessarily ‘right’ or

‘wrong’ but you’ve got to stick to

what you believe,” he says.

He has worked in India, South

America and the unsettled

Philippines – under the Marcos

regime at the time.

His growing family was always

in tow. Erin (now 37), was born

in Guatemala, Ryan (now 33),

was born in the Philippines and

Sarah (now 15), was born in Guatemala.

I ask him if he considered

it dangerous. He shrugs.

“When I was working for big

American companies, they got

me to do a CIA defensive driving

course because they were worried

about possible kidnapping risk.”

A security detail was assigned

to Mr Brantley and his family in

many places.

He helped evacuate ex-pat

American families from Saudi

Arabia in danger zones just after

the September 11 terror attacks.

In Pakistan he managed a

power plant close to Taliban

front lines, in the Philippines

he operated under the Marcos

regime – considered one of the

worst dictatorships in its history.

He wasn’t in direct danger – “just

in danger of being caught in

crossfire,” he explains calmly.

But while he travelled all

around the world, Christchurch

always had the pull of home.

“New Zealand for me is like

a small Canada. Christchurch

has the flavour and appeal of a

country-roots kind of city which

is trying to grow up a little, it has

all the advantages of an urban

culture but it doesn’t overpower

the natural landscape.”

•From page 17

In 1994 he moved back to New

Zealand – and this time, it was

permanent.

First he led OceanaGold, then

he was chief executive of Genesis

Energy in Auckland. His family

live in a big country home in

Kaiapoi, and he commuted every

week for work.

It was hard being away from his

family, he says. He has two grown

children living in Canada, four

grandchildren and a 15-year-old

daughter at St Margaret’s College:

“And for my sins, I’m on the

school board,” he laughs.

In the immediate aftermath

of the quakes, he mobilised

resources to keep power on in the

region.

For the next five years, he kept

a keen eye on the recovery, knowing

full well he had a skill set

which would be “very useful” for

the rebuild when the time came.

HORROR:

Albert

Brantley

helped

evacuate

ex-pat

American

families

from Saudi

Arabia

after the

September

11 terror

attacks.

When the Government started

planning Canterbury Earthquake

Recovery Authority’s disestablishment

last year, Mr Brantley

did his research and planned his

next move.

“I looked at the structural work

that still needs to be done, and settled

pretty quickly that Otakaro

would be the place I could do the

most good. Since my appointment

I’ve had conversations with Ross

Butler [Otakaro chairman] and

he’s described trying to attract

me to the position. I remember

it more as me trying to convince

him I really wanted this job.”

Mr Brantley’s appointment

was announced in December last

year, and he officially started in

the role on May 2. Well before

his start date, he was already

assembling the team he deemed

fit to take on a large chunk of the

city’s recovery.

While he’s still in the set-up

stage, he tells me there are some

“big announcements” coming

soon.

Mr Brantley needs to restore

confidence in the rebuild. It won’t

be easy.

City leaders are sceptical about

what Otakaro will achieve, after

CERA’s ambitious post-quake

multi-million dollar city plans

have been largely unrealised as

timelines are pushed back and

budgets cut.

The Convention Centre has

faced delay after delay, causing

a hold-up in central city

development. The Metro Sports

Facility and sports stadium may

not be delivered for many years

yet. Instability in anchor project

timelines has been blamed for a

lack of confidence in the rebuild.

I ask Mr Brantley to describe

his vision for the city. He clasps

his hands, businesslike.

“Certainly Otakaro’s purpose

is driven by the delivery of

anchor projects, then there’s also

the management of land as the

Crown is a substantial landowner

of the central city and red zone.

I’ve used my geology training to

work backwards – I’ve looked at

what the city could look like in 10

years’ time and worked off that.

It’s really important that we drive

the vision for the city.”

There were rumours the

67-year-old was set to retire after

Genesis Energy.

I ask Mr Brantley if that was

true. He immediately shakes his

head.

“No, no, no. I was not going

to retire, I was always going to

look for something new. It just

of what the

Ltd is charged with

delivering.

depended on what – and when

this opportunity came along

it was just too good to pass

up.”

While many his age are enjoying

a more leisurely lifestyle, Mr

Brantley continues to get up at

around 3.30 every morning to

start work.

Its something he has done all

his life – waking up very early

without an alarm clock, he says.

He is “notorious” amongst his

employees for early-morning

emails.

Mr Brantley plans to stay at

the helm of Otakaro for “at

least” five years, and see the next

phase of the rebuild out, he tells

me.

“I’ve got a job to do. I’m fit, I’m

healthy and I challenge all the

younger guys to keep up.”

LINCOLN has successfully

defended the Murray

Cooper Shield once again,

after they beat Waihora at

the weekend.

Waihora had one of their

best chances to win the

shield on Saturday, but lost

22-17, meaning Lincoln

continues their 11-yearrun.

This came after controversy

surrounded last

week’s defence of the

shield.

Burnham/Dunsandell/

Irwell defeated Lincoln in a

7th/8th place play-off game

in the combined country

competition.

BDI claimed the shield

should have been theirs

after winning the game.

However, the Ellesmere

Sub Union decided the

match wasn’t a round-robin

game, meaning Lincoln

retained the shield.

Waihora came into Saturday’s

game on the back

of winning the combined

country final against

Southbridge a week earlier.

Lincoln’s desire to hold

onto the Murray Cooper

Shield, Ellesmere rugby’s

equivalent of the Ranfurly

Shield, proved too strong.

“It was massive for us.

We knew they were coming

for it but we also knew they

could be vulnerable after

the previous week’s big final,

it’s always hard to back

up like that,” said Lincoln

coach Daryl Petheram.

He said the key to his

side’s success can be put

down to the hard work

done by the loose forward

trio of Scott Edmonds,

Mike Werahiko and Sam

Kendall.

“They got through a big

workload and continued to

put in big hits all day.”

Lincoln also had the

threat of Waihora full-back

Mark Maitland to deal

with.

Maitland has been one of

Ellesmere rugby’s stand-out

performers in recent years.

Last week, Maitland was

the only country rugby

player to be named in

Canterbury’s initial NPC

training squad.

“He’s a great player. As

an opposition coach, you

get nervous every time he

has the ball in his hands,”

said Petheram.

Lincoln’s final defence of

the Murray Cooper Shield

will be against Prebbleton

on July 2.

THE RUN CONTINUES: Lincoln beat Waihora 22-17

to hold onto the Murray Cooper Shield. ​

Lincoln defended the Murray Cooper Shield against Waihora at the

weekend, making it 11 years of successful defences in the Luisetti

on Saturday keeps Lincoln in a play-off position. The game between

the two sides is considered the biggest derby in the competition.

Meanwhile, Waihora and Lincoln’s under-7 ripper rugby teams played

Lincoln

Town Centre Plan

A vision for Lincoln

A new town centre plan for Lincoln will help ensure that as Lincoln

grows, the town centre remains a vibrant, prosperous space for

community and business activity.

The Lincoln Town Centre Plan, which provides a framework to guide the future development of the

town centre, was adopted by the Council in May following community consultation in late 2015.

The plan has been designed around five key themes:

· Promoting ‘active commercial frontage’, with

buildings placed to the edge of the footpath and

glass doors and windows facing the street. This

design helps to create visual interest and supports a

lively street scene for residents and visitors.

· Providing and managing car parking in Lincoln

Dedicated cycleways and parking provision

· Designing streets that are suited to their purpose

· Ensuring the town centre design provides for safe

cycling and walking connections, while allowing

traffic to move through the township

· Enhancing public spaces and squares with attractive

landscaping for markets, events and relaxation

One of the key concepts in the plan is to re-allocate the space on Gerald Street to create an attractive, safe public

space for all road users. This includes the development of cycleways, which was identified as the community’s

number one priority during consultation. Gerald Street is currently designed mainly as a through-route for traffic,

and cyclists on Gerald Street currently don’t have enough room.

The plan will be implemented in stages. In order to create space for cycleways, 75 existing car parks will be

relocated from Gerald Street. This will occur over time, and only as alternative parking areas nearby come into

operation. Existing angle parks outside shops in the town centre will remain. As car parks are relocated, new cycle

lanes will be created, linking to the University, the Rail Trail, Springston and Rolleston. Lower speed limits and new

pedestrian islands on Gerald Street opposite New World and the library are also planned. Intersection upgrades

and traffic lights will be considered on Gerald Street when vehicle numbers reach certain levels.

The Council plans to reconfigure mostly unmarked on-street parking spaces in the town centre, which currently

have capacity for 121 vehicles, to provide parking for 143 vehicles. These car parks will be marked and

established on Lyttelton Street, Maurice Street and West Belt (north and south) – connecting streets to Gerald

Street. In addition to this a new off-street communal car park is planned with capacity for 40 vehicles near the

town centre. Time restrictions will apply to parking spaces in the town centre. The Council also recently developed

a new 60 space car park at Lincoln Library which is situated centrally on Gerald Street. Footpaths on Gerald Street

will also be widened, with landscaping work planned and power lines to be placed underground.

Changes to the plan following consultation

As a result of submissions these changes have been made to the plan from the draft version:

· The development of cycle lanes on Gerald Street has been brought forward with the lanes planned to be

developed in the Retail Core East Precinct in the next five years and in the other two precincts later

· The location for a new skate facility has been identified as Lincoln Event Centre

· The Council plans to discuss with Environment Canterbury whether a park and ride facility is needed.

See comments above for information on planned parking changes.

· The wayfinder project, to establish stations signposting points of interest to tell people about Lincoln’s

features and history, could become a community project.

Project Gerald Street

Relocating some parking behind shops and having shop windows of glass facing the street will provide an

interesting street scene for pedestrians. A separate, safe cycleway lane will be on both sides of the street. The

recently developed Lincoln lawn, Meyerberg Square and Lincoln Library provide public spaces for markets,

events and relaxation and help attract people into the town centre.

An impression of how Gerald Street could look (near the library and square) once developed is below.

Leeston Skatepark

extension completed

An extension to Leeston skate bowl has now opened, doubling the size of the skate area.

The skate park was completed in late 2012 and features a four foot-deep skate bowl.

The new extension includes a large flat concrete skating area suitable for all skate levels, and new

rails and ramps have been added. Additional landscaping around the extension area has also

been completed. Grass has also been sown to grow over winter, and people are asked to stay off

fenced off areas to allow the grass to establish. The skate extension was completed by Hunter

Civil Ltd with landscaping by Greenlinc.

“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,” says Dave Greig, Selwyn District Council Landscape Architect.

An extension to the skate area at Westview Park in Darfield is being undertaken by the Council

currently, with the work expected to be complete this winter.

Celebrate Matariki

During June Selwyn residents are invited to join in celebrations for

Matariki – the Māori New Year.

On Saturday 25 June a free event is planned featuring renowned

artist Marcus Winter (pictured) who will tell the Māori story of

creation through sand pictures. Marcus has performed at locations

such as Te Papa and the Auckland Art Museum. Videos and photos

of Marcus’ amazing work are available at www.marcuswinter.co.nz.

The celebration will also include Ngāi Te Ruahikihiki performing a

mihi whakatau (welcome), and kapa haka performances by local

high schools in collaboration with the Te Taumutu Rūnanga. The

event is funded by the Selwyn District Council and will take place

at Lincoln University from 2.30-5.30pm. The afternoon is open to

all and you don’t need to be familiar with Māori protocol to attend.

Registration is essential to attend – to register please visit

portion of vehicle licensing fees will reduce for most vehicles.

If you decide to renew your car licence at an office you can do this at the AA office at the Council’s

Headquarters in Rolleston (open Monday-Fridays 8.30am-5pm) or at a post shop.

In June, AA agents can process vehicle licence applications that apply from 1 July at new reduced

fee levels.

The AA branch at the Council’s Rolleston Headquarters offers a range of other services in addition to

vehicle registration. Services include processing driver licence registration applications, driver theory

tests and booking driver practical tests, passport photos, and international driver permits. For driver

licensing queries phone 0800 822 422 and for vehicle registration queries phone 0800 108 809.

To avoid queues you can licence your vehicle online at www.nzta.govt.nz/online. It is slightly cheaper

to licence your vehicle online than at an agent but you need to allow time for your new licence to be

posted to you.

Week 19-25

June

This year, National Volunteer Week will be celebrated between Sunday 19 and

Saturday 25 June 2016. Events will be held to recognise and celebrate the vital

contribution of New Zealand’s approximately 1.2 million volunteers to social

development, the economy and the environment.

This year, National Volunteer Week focuses on time through the following two sayings:

· Make time - Whai whā

· Thanks for making time - Kia ora mō tāu whai whā

Through this campaign we hope volunteers will be recognised for making time for their

communities.

Here are some of the interesting and varied volunteering opportunities available in Selwyn.

Can Inspire

Charitable

Trust

The Can Inspire Charitable Trust delivers creative

therapies for people suffering illness, trauma and

(CanBead for jewellery making and CanTackle for

fly fishing). CanInspire was founded in Ashburton

by local woman Sarah Clifford while undergoing

radiation treatment for cancer in 2010. Sarah’s friend

gave her a jewellery making kit, which provided

distraction and a sense of purpose - Sarah made

a necklace for every day of her treatment, and

CanBead was formed.

CanInspire works alongside The Cancer Society,

Daffodil House, Cancer Support Groups, Hospice,

Eating Disorder Clinics, hospitals and many

more. We run workshops both locally in mid-

Canterbury and in Christchurch as well as in the

North Island. We are based at Community House

(Mid Canterbury) and this new location enables us

to deliver our services more frequently and more

effectively throughout the whole of New Zealand.

Can Inspire is a volunteer-based organisation and

we have volunteers working in every aspect of the

organisation, from sewing the bead bags that we

give to each participant at a workshop, breaking,

cleaning and organising beads to be transferred

into the kits, fundraising and events, workshop

volunteers and much more.

If you would like to donate any pre-loved or

unwanted jewellery you can either drop it in or mail

it to Community House (Mid Canterbury), 44 Cass

Street, Ashburton, 7700. If you would like to join our

volunteers or think you could help in any way please

call Louise Duke on 027 900 6523 or email:louise@

Foreign student

boom worth $1b

ONE OF Canterbury’s most

valuable economic earners –

international education – is set to

double, bringing close to a billion

dollars to the region.

Last year, almost 10,000 international

students came to study

in Christchurch, and by 2025 that

figure is set to increase to 25,000,

according to the Canterbury International

Education Destination

2025 Strategy.

International education is Canterbury’s

fifth largest export earner,

and the change will be positive

for the economy,

Christchurch Educated

regional co-ordinator

Bree Loverich

(left) said.

“This is going to

increase the economic

value to $1 billion a year. But there

are so many other benefits.”

Ms Loverich said other benefits

included flow-on effect to the tourism,

accommodation, telecommunication

and entertainment industries, as well as a

benefit for Kiwi students.

“They also provide an incredible value to

the region in terms of cultural and social

benefits with the diversity that they bring.”

She said Christchurch students can

greatly benefit from the diversity,

especially those that do not have the

opportunity to travel overseas in their

school years.

“In a global world and the 21st-century,

this is absolutely essential for their future.”

Ara nurses remain in demand

ExcEllEnt EmploymEnt prospects

and a variety of career options continues

to attract talented students to the world of

nursing.

At Ara Institute of canterbury (formerly

cpIt), the institute’s nursing programme

is highly-regarded. In fact, 90% of nursing

graduates find employment after graduation

– that’s new Zealand’s highest nursing

graduate employment rate. Ara prides itself

on consistently reaching the top place.

So what makes Ara nursing graduates so

employable?

years of experience in delivering nursing

training, along with great facilities and

expert tutors, is the first key to success.

Secondly, the institute works closely with

the health sector to ensure that the training

aligns with what is needed on the ground

in the region’s hospital wards, community

health centres and aged care facilities. Ara

continues to develop innovative work-based

training that help prepare graduate nurses

for the real world of work.

Executive Director of nursing at

canterbury District Health Board (cDHB)

mary Gordon says the sector is closely

involved with nursing training at Ara

providing clinical placements for nursing

students, employing new graduate nurses

across the canterbury health system,

supporting nurses to undertake graduate

and post graduate education. nurses within

the canterbury health system are very

committed to supporting the training and

development of Ara nursing students. “These

students are our future nursing workforce.

They will be our future nursing educators

and leaders who will be shaping the health

system for the future.”

Head of nursing at Ara, cathy Andrew,

says nursing training is aligned to industry

conditions and the demands of modern

nursing. “We have excellent relationships

with clinical agencies and work closely

together to provide learning experiences

that are positive for students. We are seen as

national leaders in innovative clinical models

of learning and regularly receive feedback

that our graduates are actively recruited by

employers throughout new Zealand.”

march 2016 graduates of the Ara Bachelor

of nursing programme achieved a 90.3%

employment rate. They are out there working

in the sector in a variety of roles across the

spectrum of nursing including hospital

wards, mental health, community health,

aged care and emergency units.

Pak choi – the hero crop

Rachel Vogan gets

excited about one of

the super-hero crops

for this time of year

WITH STRONG Asian connections,

Brassica rapa subsp. chinensis is a bit

of a mouthful, but simply put, it is

part of the cabbage family.

Pak choi – known also as bak

choy – is a hero crop that requires

only a small patch of fertile earth

to flourish and is happy in cooler

temperatures, hence this vegetable is

a worthy candidate for gardeners all

over the country to grow.

This robust and rather durable

vegetable tastes even better than it

looks.

The lush, almost soft-looking green

leaves are as tough as old boots.

The contrasting juicy white midrib

is sweet and packed with flavour.

Pak choi is a good source of around

20 nutrients, including the highly

sought after omega-3s, as well as the

antioxidant mineral zinc.

Pak choi is versatile in the kitchen,

too. Some enjoy it added to smoothies

and energy drinks as it’s a good source

of both vitamins A and C.

Try it raw, shredded into rice paper

rolls with a piquant dipping sauce

laced with soy, ginger and sesame.

•Turn to page 32

TASTY: Pak choi or bak

choy grows happily in

cooler temperatures.

Pak choi doesn’t need a

lot of root room, making

it a great option for

planters.

For those keen on

colour contrast, try

a red variety such as

‘Red Choi’.

LET’S GET

GardEninG

SuccuLEnT

If strawberries are on your list of favourite fruits, then you need to start thinking

about planting soon so you can enjoy their sensational taste come the summer.

While planting them now seems a bit silly, research shows that our crisp winter

can help to produce a better crop in the summer. Here are some key things to

consider when planting strawberries.

Location: Choose a sunny spot to plant. Strawberries will do great in pots,

containers, barrels and garden patches, just choose somewhere they will get

sun.

Growing Mix: For pots, containers and barrels our Patio Plus is an excellent

choice. It provides all the essential nutrients for the plant, and is designed

specifically for planting in pots and containers. You can also use Tomato Mix

as strawberries and tomatoes have very similar nutritional requirements. Your

choice of mix plays a big part in how your crops will turn out – so choose wisely!

For garden beds, make sure they are full of Organic Compost and quality soil.

Fertilise: Your plants will need a regular feed during their optimal growing times

of spring and summer. We have a strawberry fertiliser that is excellent for this.

Application rates are written on the packaging, making it nice and easy for you.

Pest Control: As the plant begins to fruit, you will want to put some form of

protection over the plants to stop the birds getting the berries. Use a mesh or

wire cover so they still get air, water and sunlight.

The hero vegetable

•From page 31

Stir-fry with other Asian greens or lightly

sautéed in butter on its own, and few will

push this sweet and juicy vegetable to the

side of the plate.

Grilled on the barbecue it complements

meat dishes and, with a rather robust

texture, it doesn’t disintegrate on the

hot plate like other leafy greens, such as

spinach and silver beet.

Growing tips

If you want something for a pot or a tub,

this has to be at the top of the list. Pak

choi has a very shallow root system, which

makes it ideal for planting under other

plants.

Three plants can easily grow in a small pot.

If you jam a few more in, harvest the smaller

ones when they are a little smaller and leave

the rest to fatten up to be chunky monkeys.

In the garden, blend in rich compost

or a few handfuls of sheep pellets before

planting. The more organic matter you get

into the soil, the faster the crop will grow. If

you have plenty of room, plant them troweldistance

apart. Full sun will give you the best

results, although they do cope with a little

shade. Their main requirement is watering at

least twice a week.

Seeds germinate within a week or so and

online catalogues have a great range. Seed

can be sown directly into the ground or into

trays; they quickly germinate if soil is moist,

but not boggy.

Plant six to 10 plants once a month, or more

if you have plenty of mouths to feed. Slug and

Slugs, snails and caterpillars love this

juicy green too, so take precautionary

action.

snails like to hunt them down, so lay plenty of

bait to keep them away. To harvest use a sharp

knife and cut off just above soil level, cook

or use as soon as possible. You can leave the

stem and root in the ground, more shoots will

appear and these are edible, too. They won’t

get as big as the initial plant, but they do taste

pretty similar.

Delicious stir-fried, steamed by themselves

or added to other vegetables or meat, stalks

are best picked immediately after flowering

starts. Leave three or four young leaves on

the plant and successive stalks will then grow

from the main stalk.

Time to plant trees

JUNE BRINGS the start

of rain and cold weather,

but there is still plenty

to do in the garden such

as pruning and planting

trees.

Here are some top

tasks to keep you busy

and warm.

Now is the time to

start planting any pip

and stone fruit trees.

New young trees are

now available in garden

centres; ensure you

select healthy looking

specimens. Consider

your planting areas carefully,

making sure your

young tree has full

exposure to the sun and

is sheltered from strong

prevailing winds.

For existing pip and

stone fruit trees, you can

now begin pruning. Try

to keep the tree height

under three metres to

allow for easier harvesting

and netting of

trees where birds are a

problem.

June is also a safe time

to plant new ornamental

trees and shrubs. Planting

technique is important

to allow new plants

to thrive in both climatic

extremes for example

wet winters and hot dry

summers. Also incorporate

plenty of compost

into the soil when

planting new specimens.

Spread compost around

existing trees and shrubs

to give them a boost.

Continue to keep sowing

and planting winter

veges such as broccoli,

cabbage cauliflower,

peas and spinach to

ensure a continuous

supply.

Protect empty garden

beds by sowing green

manure crops for example

lupins. They protect

the top soil from wind

and water erosion and

add organic matter back

to the soil when dug in.

SELWYN TIMES

Wait till they are about

15-20cm high then chop

up with a spade as you

dig them back into the

soil.

Prune roses when all

the leaves have fallen

and apply a winter clean

up spray of copper

oxychloride or lime

sulphur after pruning.

Remove and destroy

any diseased wood after

pruning. Replace any

rose specimens that

have not performed

adequately or were heavily

infected with black

spot or rust during the

growing season. Choose

new varieties from catalogues

or visit your local

gardening centre.

June is an excellent

time to plan new

gardens in your property

in preparation for

spring planting. It is a

good idea to monitor

future garden areas for

cold winds and excessive

moisture, as both

conditions will influence

what you can plant in

that area.

Plant new shelter belts

and or hedges where

they are required.

EXPERT GASFITTERS ARE

AVAILABLE IN SELWYN

The insTallaTion of central heating,

log fires and heat pumps must be carried

out by a certified specialist, especially when

it is a gas system.

a certified plumber and gasfitter is fully

trained so aware of the relevant building

codes and how to install heating systems

correctly, avoiding future operational

problems with the unit.

“it takes a long time to become a qualified

gasfitter,” explains Glyn Gerrand owner

of selwyn Gasfitters, a division of selwyn

Property Force.

Glyn and his team are all fully qualified

and gas experts. They design, supply, install,

service and repair gas systems, specialising

in central heating, log fires, heat pumps,

and solar systems as well as gas hot water

conversions, gas hob and free standing

gas cookers, gas fires, and gas heaters and

bayonets.

selwyn Gasfitters are also the local Bosch

service agents for both commercial and

residential gas appliances.

“every gas appliance should be serviced

annually,” advises Glyn. “a lack of servicing

can impact on the manufacturer’s warranty.

Glyn explains that a dirt leg is fitted

on the regulator to take the oil out of the

gas. if it fills up with oil, the pipes can get

clogged and cause the system to become

problematic. if the system is not cleaned out

annually, this build up could lead to costly

repairs.

selwyn Gasfitters are able to take on

any job and while mainly working in

the residential area that includes home

renovations and new builds, they also carry

out commercial work and undertake larger

projects both locally and across the city.

Glyn is a born and bred selwyn local

though he did spend 10 years’ working in

plumbing around the world, adding to his

knowledge and skills which he passes on

when training apprentices. Combined, the

team have more than 40 years’ experience as

Certifying Gasfitters.

They are all rural guys who understand

the rural side of selwyn as well as its towns.

“We won’t be turned away if there’s an

electric gate across the driveway, or the

farm dogs greet our vehicle,” says Glyn.

“We’re as much at home on the farm as in

the suburbs.”

A WARM AND BRIGHT

WINTER

WiTh The darker nights, it is a good time

to consider the efficiency of lighting in your

home and consider the value in upgrading

to the latest form of illumination.

leD lighting is an extremely efficient

form of lighting due to it using around 85%

less power than a conventional light while

producing a much nicer light.

“Whether building a new house,

renovating or just upgrading one or more

lights around the home, leD lights are

the way to go,” says Greg horton from a

electrical.

“With existing homes, it’s not always

affordable to change all lights to leD at

the same time so many of our customers

are just upgrading their main lights, then

replacing the balance of lights in their home

over time. This makes the transition more

affordable and we can offer some good

deals on leD lighting to help this process.”

a electrical install complete replacement

leD light fittings. as these are sealed, there

are no gaps through which heat can be lost

or dust can get into the home and pink

batts can be placed right over the top of

these.

“There are now some very efficient leD

outdoor lights available on the market too

which match traditional lighting prices

and we can also supply and fit these for

customers”, adds Greg.

he is also a big fan of the Mitsubishi

hypercore heat Pump, available in four and

six kilowatt sizes. The six kilowatt hypercore

will deliver six kilowatts of heat even at

minus five degrees. This is in contrast to

some other heat pumps that start dropping

down below four kilowatts when it is really

cold outside.

heating the bathroom also makes life

a little more pleasant when it is cold.

Traditionally, some bathroom heaters

have been unreliable in their operation

however, a electrical have found a reliable

bathroom wall heater that they are happy

to put their name to, and which has a ten

year guarantee.

a electrical are electrical specialists

with a great team. They are fans of new

builds and will competently deliver the

BuSINESS MuST coMPLY

with electrical standards

eleCTRiCal (saFeTY) ReGUlaTions

came into effect in 2010 requiring that

all portable electrical equipment used in

businesses is tested and tagged to state that

it meets the as/nZs 3760 standard.

While this is another compliance cost for

businesses, the aim of these regulations is

health and safety.

Certifying portable electrical appliances

as safe is now a legal requirement, with it

depending on the type of equipment as to

how often it must be tested. For example,

some businesses need only test every two

years and others are on a three, six or twelve

month rotation while some static items are

tested every sixty months.

These regulations affect a wide range of

businesses including those in the hospitality

industry where small appliances such as hair

dryers, toasters and electric jugs are placed

in rooms for customer use. Customers

should look for the certification tag on these

appliances so they know they are safe to use.

“The law is quite clear. Business owners

and operators must be aware of the safety

standards that relate to the equipment they

use,” explains Marcus Clark from Test Tech

ltd. “it’s about being self-aware, informed

and proactive rather than waiting for

an osh inspector’s visit or worse still, a

workplace accident to occur.”

“Knowing this is the law, then waiting for

an osh visit and a person being seriously

harmed in the meantime, is likely to put

a business under the spotlight with the

potential for the maximum penalty and

more regular osh inspector visits until

any problem is sorted to satisfaction,” says

Marcus.

it concerns Marcus that some businesses

are holding off, not expecting an osh visit,

then being faced with a rush to have their

appliances checked and certified, when osh

sets a deadline by which all equipment is

to be tagged. he says that this could lead to

higher costs especially if their equipment

is found to be unsafe. it also has the

potential to affect the business’ health and

safety record leading to more regular osh

inspections.

“Uncertified appliances will be logged

with a very short time allowed to have these

tested and a second visit likely from an

osh inspector to check the equipment is

certified. if a business has previously had a

health and safety incident or not met legal

requirements then visits may be sooner,”

adds Marcus who has noted that all the

businesses in some parts of the city have

already been visited.

Marcus is able to advise business owners

and managers on their legal requirements

relating to appliances, electrical equipment

and machinery used at their premises. he

understands that it is an expense so has in

place a pricing strategy that helps businesses

keep costs at a minimum.

“This is a legislative requirement and

part of being safe,” explains Marcus. “When

you look at the whole picture, it is better to

have a safe business environment than see

someone harmed.”

Garden planning

and preparation

over winter

it might be cooler outside but

there is still plenty to do to get

the garden into shape for

spring and planning ahead will

certainly pay dividends later.

WinTeR is also a good time to move

trees. “Trees are dormant in winter so

there’s less chance of disturbing them

when they are to be transplanted, and

if deciduous having less weight in the

tree makes for an easier relocation to

their new position,” explains landscape

designer sharon Crofts who adds that most

deciduous trees will transplant if their

root system is intact and they are within a

certain age and size.

This is also an ideal time to re-locate

plants or plant a new area. With many

nurseries getting their fresh new stocks

of trees in and some stocking bare-rooted

trees during winter, savings can be made

as the new season’s stock will be sitting in

sawdust yet to be bagged up so will likely

be more economically priced making it a

good option for those wanting to purchase

a good number of trees.

With over 25 years’ experience in the

horticultural and landscape industry,

sharon knows where to source suitable

plant stock and can advise on the best

position for plants.

“Different tree and shrub species will

reach different heights so selecting the

right place for each plant will maximise

their effect,” explains sharon who

encourages people to plan and book

contractors well ahead, as demand for

landscape work increases especially over

spring and leading up to Christmas.

some construction may also be

easier during the colder months when

tradespeople can be more available and it

may offer the opportunity for a good price

with some operators more focussed on

keeping their workers busy when work is

quieter.

“Plan ahead and have the landscape plan

drawn up now. Quotes can then be sourced

and work booked early, ready to begin

at the end of winter,” suggests sharon.

“This will ensure that the landscaping is

completed on time.”

This is especially important where a

new sub-division’s covenants require

completion of landscaping by a certain

date. a landscape plan may also be

required as part of the concept process

before building commences, linked to the

initial architectural stages of drawing up

the house plans.

sharon Crofts landscape Design will

draw up a design concept and provide a

comprehensive planting plan, where the

numbers and types of plants is itemised

along with where to locate these. a client

can then plant out within their own

timeframe.

sharon spends time talking with her

clients to hear their ideas while still

projecting new ideas and suggestions

for their property, so the final design has

flair yet functionality. By merging the

two together, the ultimate design is one

her clients will love and enjoy, perhaps

explaining why so many of sharon’s clients

are delighted with her work.

For more information, you can call

sharon on 329 6229 or 0274 311 558,

email: s-crofts@xtra.co.nz and view her

Fortuner boosts Toyota’s SUV range

• By Ross Kiddie

THERE’S NO shortage of sport

utility vehicles in the Toyota

stable.

However, what Toyota New

Zealand do very well is plug gaps

and it has vehicles to suit every

budget and purpose.

Recently, Toyota launched a

newcomer to its line-up – the

Fortuner. It is a large, seven-seat,

sport utility vehicle which sits

alongside the Highlander and the

Land Cruiser series for buyers

who just can’t step up to Prado or

who don’t want the petrol-fuelled

Highlander.

The Fortuner is a diesel-powered

model only, it is the newgeneration

engine which sits in

Prado and Hilux, and there are

many other similarities to Hilux

as well, the Fortuner sits on the

chassis and underpinnings which

has made Hilux so successful as a

light commercial ute.

That concept isn’t new in SUV

manufacture – Ford’s Everest

utilises the Ranger platform, and

Holden’s Colorado7 is an extension

of the Colorado ute.

However, there is one significant

difference between the

Fortuner’s suspension and that

of the Hilux, while both have a

live rear axle, the Fortuner has

coil springs as opposed to a leaf

TOYOTA FORTUNER: Capable off-road.

spring set-up which is common

practice with this type of SUV.

Elsewhere, the Fortuner doesn’t

rely heavily on the appeal of

Hilux. Yes, the doors and bonnet

are the same, but the Fortuner

has styling cues less aggressive

and more akin to what you would

find in a family station wagon. I

really like the shape of Fortuner,

it is classy and curvy, disguising

well its relationship to Hilux.

The Fortuner lands here in

three grades. The entry-level GX

model lands at $70,990 and is

a manual gearbox model, automatic

transmission on GX adds

$2000. The test car was the GXL

automatic at $75,990, while a

Limited sits at $78,990.

Each is equipped well for its

price, the test car boasted satellite

navigation, paddle-shift gear

selectors, powered tailgate, nice

wood and leather steering wheel,

cruise control, and reversing

camera.

As mentioned, the Fortuner

gets Toyota’s new-generation

2.8-litre, four-cylinder diesel

engine. It is a stunner in terms

of refinement and mechanical

ability, it pumps out a beefy

130kW and 450Nm while

capable of returning a 8.6l/100km

(33mpg) combined cycle fuel

usage average.

During my time with the test

car the trip computer was constantly

sitting around 10l/100km

(28mpg) with 8l/100km

(35mpg) listing instantaneously

at 100km/h (engine speed

1800rpm).

The engine responds willingly

to throttle pressure and works

smoothly under pressure. That’s

something I’ve commented on

every time I’ve experienced the

new engine, it has refinement

uncharacteristic for a big four-pot

diesel.

Power is harnessed gently

through a six-speed automatic;

the gearbox is also reasonably

new for Toyota, well it’s certainly

new for Hilux, and Fortuner gets

the benefit of the low and close

ratios, immediate acceleration is

forceful, while the ratios broaden

to provide the lethargy for open

road cruising. Bearing in mind

that Fortuner is aimed at families

who will want to drive long

distances on the open road, fuel

economy is an important ingredient

of that.

Yet, the Fortuner is also the

capable off-road charger. Its fourwheel-drive

system is engineered

for rough conditions, it can

most certainly be described as a

serious off-roader. It has ground

clearance of a healthy 279mm,

and the driveline has a low ratio

transfer case so that slow speed

momentum can be initiated for

when obstacles are presented.

I took the test car on a piece

of dirt that encompassed several

mounds and descents, I can report

it has suspension which absorbs

the rough stuff, providing the

occupants with a well-cushioned

ride in those conditions.

As well as the Fortuner is

engineered for life off-road, it is

still the easy-to-drive city slicker.

Sure, at 4.8m there is a lot of

vehicle to get into a metered

car park, but it has adequate

manoeuvrability considering its

size, and good visibility.

As an organisation, Toyota

isn’t shy about introducing vehicles

for an intended audience.

The Fortuner fits into the vast

model line-up perfectly, and will

be joined in other models soon

which will expand the SUV market

even further.

The Fortuner is there for those

who understand the ability of

Hilux yet need something just a

little more family-friendly.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Using an agent to

sell your house

The question that many people selling their property face is whether to

list with a real estate agent or attempt the sales process themselves.

A short drive around the streets supports

the statistics that most homes are sold

through a real estate agency with a much

smaller number marketed by a private

vendor.

“houses sold by a home owner can sit on

the market for longer and historically sell for

less while real estate agents generally achieve

a higher price,” explains Mike Goatley,

Principal at one Agency’s selwyn real Estate

in rolleston.

Mike has considerable experience in

the real estate industry. he says people

want to know that they are dealing with a

professional and will have recourse in the

long run if needed whereas buying off a

private seller is ‘consumer beware’ as the

consumer protection laws do not apply for

private sales.

An example is the Fair trading Act. Under

section 14, it is illegal to falsely represent

a property or mislead a potential buyer in

any way, including in any bidding process.

This requirement only applies to people in

business.

Also relevant is the real Estate Agents

Act, 2008. The real Estate Agents Authority

(rEAA) is the industry body that is

responsible for overseeing observance of this

legislation. It has rules governing licensed

real estate agents that relate to client care,

and specify how both seller and buyer is to

be taken care of in the sales process.

“These are critical things and good reasons

for using a real estate agent,” suggests Mike.

Another benefit of going through a real

estate agent is their ability to penetrate the

market giving far wider exposure platforms

than a private individual is able to access.

While trade Me appears to be the most

recognised on-line forum for listing homes,

real estate agents have access to a wider

range of local and international websites

that include realestate.co.nz, houGarden

and Juwai that allow Chinese buyers to be

reached, Dream homes and specialised real

estate publications and newspaper lift-outs.

An agent’s experience in putting together

eye catching advertising also attracts interest

in a property. Then, there is the exposure the

property gains from promotional initiatives

like the property featured in the real estate

agent’s window and a wider pool of agents

being aware of the property.

The size of the real estate agency is not a

factor when it comes to successfully selling a

property according to Mike.

“The visibility of a client’s property to the

market is what counts. People will go to a

property because they like the look of it, not

because of an agency’s name. small agencies

also provide a high level of service with

clients enjoying a more hands-on personal

approach,” suggests Mike.

“It’s a people business. houses are bought

and sold through relationships being

established, not a brand. More important is

good communication and negotiating skills

with high energy and choosing the best sale

strategy for the client’s property.”
