Low rainfall

could have

major impact

on farmers

• By Tom Doudney


groundwater will be facing another tough

summer ahead unless the district gets a

major downpour in the next six weeks.

Groundwater levels are at historically

low levels after a lack of significant rainfall

in recent winters led to low recharge

of the aquifers.

HydroServices managing director Dr

Tony Davoren said if there wasn’t a major

downpour before September, farmers

were likely to have to cut back their water

takes in the next irrigation season “or else

they will be sucking air.”

May and June had seen only about

110mm of rainfall – not enough to lead

to groundwater recharge. Usually, between

mid-April and September 1, about

300mm would be required for good

groundwater recharge.

“We’re in a very difficult position right

now,” Mr Davoren said.

While low rainfall had caused the low

groundwater Selwyn levels, Times increased use of

groundwater 266mm for x agricultural 90mm use due to

intensification of farming meant that recovery

during recharge periods was less.

“The effect on the groundwater is

that it takes away all its resilience,” Mr

Davoren said.

Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee

member and dairy farmer John Sunckell

said the effects of a lack of rainfall on

Selwyn’s farming community would be


“That will put real pressure on groundwater

takes,” Mr Sunckell said.

“For the majority of us sitting in the

middle of the catchment, we could effectively

see water drop off the end of our

pipes.” •Turn to page 3

LUNCH TIME: Burnham Primary School embraced Maori Language Week with

a hangi last week. Local kindergarten children and parents were invited to eat

Enrolment Scheme

Home Zone changes effective 1 January 2017

In order to avoid the likelihood of future

overcrowding, the establishment board of

Lemonwood Grove School proposes to adopt

an enrolment scheme, effective from the date

of opening on 1 January, 2017.

Consequential amendments to the enrolment

schemes of West Rolleston School, Rolleston

School and Clearview Primary School are also

proposed to take effect from this date.

The Lemonwood Grove School new enrolment

scheme and consequent amendments to

West Rolleston School, Rolleston School and

Clearview Primary enrolment schemes are

now open for community feedback.

Please note the important information below:

• Most boundary roads refer to both sides

of the road with some exceptions for

Lemonwood Grove and Clearview Primary.

The ‘Roads map’ will show this distinction

or check the written description of the zone

which sits alongside the zone map.

• Clearview Primary School and Rolleston

School enrolment schemes will include

a ‘grand-parenting’ clause for families

of currently ‘in-zone’ enrolled students,

who find themselves ‘out of zone’ at the

commencement of this scheme. The criteria

around this arrangement are noted in the

written enrolment scheme.

The enrolment scheme, which includes a precise description of the home zone, may be viewed at

the school office of West Rolleston School, Rolleston School, Clearview Primary School, on each

school website or at

In accordance with section 11H of the Education Act, 1989, the boards of each school are now

undertaking community consultation.

Feedback comment is welcomed by the boards of the schools as below:

Low rainfall

could have

impact on


•From page 1

A recent report from

Environment Canterbury

scientist Dr Brett Painter to the

Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee

stressed the importance of the

Central Plains Water scheme on

reducing takes from groundwater.

“Abstraction of consumptive

water from an already stressed

groundwater system provides further

stress on all that this system

supports,” Dr Painter wrote.

“The recent introduction of

high reliability alpine water from

the Central Plains Water scheme

has helped to right this imbalance,

in particular through the

replacement of deep groundwater

abstraction in the Stage 1 command


Federated Farmers North

Canterbury president Lynda

Murchison said all farmers would

be hoping for some good heavy

rainfall in the winter but dry

conditions were part of farming

in Canterbury.

“The advantage about this is

you actually know what the situation

is and if you know what the

situation is, you can plan for it.”

Thieves target rural companies

• By Tom Doudney


targeting rural companies in

the Springfield area – in one

case hitting the same place

twice within a week.

The Springfield Lime Company,

Fulton Hogan and a

logging company are among

those which have reported

thefts of fuel, vehicle batteries

and other equipment in the last

few weeks.

Springfield Lime Company

site manager Matt Goulding

said the thieves had done about

$7000 worth of damage over

two visits to the quarry.

POOL FUN: Daniel Drury

joined in the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre birthday

celebrations. The centre

recently celebrated its

third birthday with a pool

party to say thank you to

everyone that has used

the facility over the last

three years. Over that

time there has been

830,000 people who have

used the centre. They will

also be running activities

over the school holidays

to get involved in. Check

for details.

In separate incidents within

a week, 16 vehicle batteries, a

radio and about 1000-litres of

fuel had been taken.

The culprits were believed

to have used a water tank on a

trailer to take the fuel.

“Obviously, it’s not the smartest

people around who are

doing this sort of thing but to

come back twice is pretty silly,”

Mr Goulding said.

Footage from the quarry has

been supplied to police.

Fulton Hogan maintenance

manager Steve Garbett said

batteries, lamps, torches and

other machinery had been

taken from a storage yard near

Kowhai River.

Senior Constable Andy

Grant said it was important for

contractors to keep fuel and

vehicles as secure as possible


“We would advise people

with quarries, and farmers,

if they have got things off the

main road to shut and lock

gates so people don’t have access

up driveways and farms

and isolated areas.”

Police wanted to hear from

anyone who had seen any suspicious

vehicles in the Springfield

area late at night during

recent weeks.

Police have said charges are likely

after a Rolleston man, 40, was

accidentally shot in the leg by his

hunting partner at Glenthorne

Station, near Lake Coleridge,

recently. The pair and a third man,

all from Selwyn, were on a hunting

trip when the incident happened.

Senior Sergeant Tony Beaumont said

one of the men had been unloading

his rifle when it went off and hit his

companion in the lower leg.


An appeal by the Prebbleton Tavern

against a Selwyn District Licensing

Committee ruling preventing it

from advertising its off-licence

alcohol prices to passers-by will be

heard on August 18. The case will

be heard by the Alcohol Regulatory

and Licensing Authority at the

Christchurch District Court. Tavern

owner Shannon Gilmore had argued

that it wasn’t fair to limit advertising

for its off-licence when supermarkets

and other alcohol retailers were able

to advertise more freely.

Springston south resident

Mike Glover responds to a

Soap Box column by Selwyn

Waihora Zone Committee

chairman Allen Lim on

water issues and quality in

streams around Selwyn.

Allen points out that the zone

committee’s focus is on water issues

at a community level.

I live near the Selwyn Huts

community where the pollution

levels in the Selwyn River for both

nitrates (animal effluent and fertiliser

run off) and E.coli have been

consistently high for decades.

The last summer was miserable

– with toxic algae from excessive

effluent/fertiliser and high E.coli

levels making both swimming or

even paddling out of the question.

We are at the end of the line for

pollution from the upper catchment.

Its all got to go somewhere

– to hear that the Liffey Stream

could be diluted to lower nitrate

levels is no solution at all – it will

still end up in Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere where the Government

(actually that’s me and you – fellow

taxpayers) is already going to

spend millions cleaning up the

pollution from farming over the

next decades anyway.

Allen talks of the ‘nitrate challenge’

– its more like a disaster

and its only going to get worse.

The ‘tough new rules for farmers’

he talks of are based on slack new

rules in the National Objectives

Framework for Water which allow

for up to 10 times more nitrate in


supported by

our water than previous standards.

Even the ‘middle ground’

here is totally unacceptable.

Allen Lim responds to Mike

Glover’s letter.

I share Mike’s frustration about

the state of the Selwyn River.

It’s one of the reasons why I

became involved in the Selwyn

Waihora Zone Committee.

Reading Mike’s comments,

it is obvious to me that we, as a

zone committee, have not been

very good at telling the community

about what we are doing,

resulting in misunderstandings.

Contrary to Mike’s opinion,

Targeted Stream Augmentation

is definitely a way forward for

healthy lowland steams.

We have successfully completed

a trial of TSA at Boggy Creek.

The next stage is to investigate the

feasibility of catchment-wide TSA

by bringing alpine water through

existing stockwater races to target

areas. TSA will become more

necessary because with climate

change, less rain is predicted to

fall on the Canterbury Plains.

This will result in low flows and

worse water leading to greater

potential for algal bloom – which

is what Mike observed last year in

the Selwyn River.

For Mike to call the situation a

“disaster” is premature. I would

save that word for the years to

come – because things will get

worse before they get better.

Make no mistake, the rules that

now apply to farmers in Selwyn

Waihora are some of the toughest

in the country. Many farmers in

the zone will need a consent to

farm. Dairy farmers will need to

reduce nutrient losses from their

farms by 30 per cent.

The rules also include catchment

limits for nitrogen losses

from point source discharges –

industrial processing activities

and community sewerage.

The water problems in our zone

have been decades in the making

and it will be many years before

we will see significant improvements.

We need the community

to be patient and come with us on

the journey.

S. Slater, of Lincoln – With

reference to your article in the

Selwyn Times regarding a possible

swimming pool in Lincoln,

I would very much support this


As a senior resident and weekly

swimmer, I would certainly welcome

a pool closer to home, and

feel that along with the growing

community, university and local

schools this would be well supported

and welcomed.

Hasson to run

for eighth term

LONG serving

district councillor

Debra Hasson

will stand again in

October’s local body


Cr Hasson has

had a seat on the district

council since 1995 and is now

serving her seventh term.

She was elected when she

was in her 30s, after a retiring

councillor suggested putting

her name forward.

“They called me the baby because

I was the youngest on the

council,” said Cr Hasson.

Over the years, Cr Hasson has

seen many changes in the area,

noting the way Rolleston and

Lincoln have grown so quickly

and how the townships around

Selwyn continue to change as

more people move into the area.

She did not become a councillor

because of the pay. At the

time she joined, the salary for

a councillor was $3000 a year,

now they receive $35,000.

“You do it because you’re passionate

about your community

and what happens in the area,”

she said.

Cr Hasson said that when she

first started, there was only one

other female councillor.

Not much has changed 21

years on with Cr Hasson and

Cr Sarah Walters still the only

women on the counil.

However, Cr Walters is running

for the mayoralty only this

year. If she is not elected, Cr

Hasson will be the only female

at the council table.

“I hope more females put

their hands up to be on the

council,” she said.

Cr Hasson is interested to see

how the new set of councillors

interact with each other.

She said this term’s councillors

have interacted really well


“I’ve been on [Selwyn] district

councils when there have

been separate A and B teams

and I have been on some

[Selwyn] councils when

they have worked really well

together. A large part of it is

having respect for the other

councillors,” she said.

While she is staying quite

on whether she will run for

the mayor, she plans to stay a

district councillor for several

more years.

a New Zealand Road Code,

study it and sit a New Zealand

There are four rural fire forces

in Selwyn. They are located at Arthur’s

Pass, Lake Coleridge, West

Melton and Darfield.

Selwyn district principal rural

fire officer Douglas Marshall

said the district council wants to

recruit more volunteers to cope

with more call-outs all year round,

but especially during the summer

when nor’west winds pick up.

“The amount of time volunteers

spend attending to fires varies a

lot throughout the year. Generally,

call-outs in winter and spring-time

are limited, while during a hot

summer fire fighters can be very

busy,” Mr Marshall said.

Fire fighters will receive training

before joining the force and will

continue to receive training during

their time with the force.

Water meter crackdown

THERE HAVE been 45

abatement notices and one

infringement notice issued in the

last two months to Canterbury

water consent holders who hadn’t

yet installed a required meter.

Environment Canterbury made

contact in May and June with the

500 water consent holders who

had not provided evidence they

had installed a water measuring


Of these, 63 have since been

deemed fully compliant with

their consent conditions and the

national regulations.

ECan regional manager

implementation support Nadeine

Dommisse said all of the 500

consent holders now either had

an agreed action plan in place

to install a water measuring

device, or were aware they had 10

working days to provide evidence

that action was being taken to

avoid further enforcement action.

“What we have found is that

once contacted, many people

took action immediately or provided

evidence they had a plan

in place to install the necessary

equipment and systems,” she


About 5400 (or 90 per cent of

the 5900 water consent holders

in Canterbury) had already

provided evidence they complied

with the regulations.

INSPECTION TIME: A correctly installed water measuring system

undergoing verification by an ECan environment protection

officer to ensure an accurate flow-rate measurement.

All water consent holders

with a take of 10l/s or more are

required to measure their water

BILINGUAL: Amiria and Matakaea Tikao helped supermarket

customers celebrate Maori Language Week. ​

Pupils teach Te Reo

TWO PUPILS – one from

Shirley Intermediate and the

other from St Albans School

– were the voices behind a

supermarket initiative to

celebrate Maori Language


Amiria Tikao, 12, and her

younger sister Matakaea, 9, had

their voices professionally recorded

in a sound studio to help

SuperValue and FreshChoice

customers better understand the

Maori language.

The sisters were recorded pronouncing

items such as apples,

mushrooms, fish, milk, meat,

kiwifruit and cheese, along with

many others.

Amiria said it was a fun project

to be involved with.

“It was really cool. It took

about 45mins, so not very long .

. . we got most of the words first

time, which was good,” she said.

Local SuperValue and Fresh-

Choice supermarkets then put

posters up around their stores,

with a QR code that customers

could scan with their cell phone.

The code led to a website where

they could hear the two pupils

correctly pronounce the word.

Amiria said she had not yet

tested out the posters, but she

would think about going in


SuperValue and FreshChoice

brands manager Liz de Lange

said that when the campaign

was run last year, the QR codes

were used thousands of times.

When did you first link up with

the Lincoln rugby team?

1996, so 21 years ago.

And you’ve been the coach

that whole time?

I’ve had one or two years off. I

started off at under 13s actually

and then under 11s and coached

there basically ever since, gone

right through to Colts and taken a

lot of the senior boys right through

from under 11s to seniors.

What has it been like seeing guys

go from promising young players up

to the higher level?

When players develop like that it

gives you a bit of a buzz, to be fair, but

more importantly seeing them develop

as people, not necessarily just rugby

players – it’s a little bit more about the

people than just the rugby, really.

When did you first become coach

of the senior side?

In 2011 to 2012 I coached them,

and then I gave that up to tour South

Africa with the Chiefs. Then I helped

out last year when they needed a bit

of help and somehow or another got

roped back into it this year.

When you say you helped out last

year, what was your role then?

The appointed coach was away for a

couple of extended periods and I was

more than happy to fill in.

What was that you mentioned

about touring with the Chiefs?

One of the boys I coached at rep

level – because I not only coached at

Lincoln, I have done a lot of Ellesmere

and Canterbury Country coaching

all the way through the grades as

well – but one of the boys I coached,

who first played his rugby at Lincoln,

was Andrew Horrell who plays for

the Chiefs. We’re good friends with

the parents so my wife Pauline and I

toured over there with him.

So you just sort of followed the

team around as spectators?

Yeah, we were spectators but we

were the only people touring with

them so we got well looked after.

How many games did you go to

over there?

Only two, they played the Stormers

in Cape Town and the Kings in Port

Elizabeth. That was back in 2013.

What brought you to Lincoln?

We live at Weedons and it was just

one of those things where the kids

were looking for a team to play and

we ended up with them playing over

at Lincoln.

What’s the team culture like at

Lincoln and has it changed much

over the years?

The club culture is very solid. It has

always been a good club to work with

although I personally stay out of the

politics but as far as the teams I have

been lucky enough to coach, they have

had good team culture, won a few

championships here and there and

just had some really good players.

Has Lincoln rugby always been

pretty strong in the Selwyn district

throughout that time?

It has had its ups and downs but always

been relatively strong. There are

guys who are about 28 now who we

took from under 11s right up to Colts

– that’s Daryl Petheram and I. He’s

the other coach at Lincoln. We have

coached together for almost 20 years

and him and I are the senior coaches

at the moment.

Do you both share the head coach

role or is one of you the assistant?

No, no, we both coach together. We

have been coaching for a long time

so we just get out there and enjoy

coaching together and work with each

other. We’ve won three senior titles

and about 10 titles in total including

junior stuff so we’ve been successful.

Do you ever disagree about things

and how do you resolve that when

you are coaching the same team?

We have debates, healthy debates

over different things, and then we will

always come to a resolution and get

on with it. I don’t think we have ever

had an argument to my knowledge,

we just work through things. The team

is always paramount and neither of us

really have egos to be fair.

about the people as it is the game

When the team is defending

the Murray Cooper shield, which

you’ve held for so long, what is the

mood in the changing sheds before

the game?

There is a steely resolve there – a

determination which is evident

from the time the boys arrive at the

ground. They value that shield like

nothing else. They realise that its

history, and that they are part of the

history and they really want to make

sure that on their watch it doesn’t

leave that Lincoln cabinet.

I guess when it has been there 11

years, it would be like that.

It has actually been there for about

of 15 of the last 16 years. Southbridge

won it in 2005 and we got it

back in 2006 but we had had it for

four years before that as well.

Rural rugby seems, even more so

than city rugby, like its about getting

out there with your mates and

letting off some steam and looking

after each other – would you say

that’s pretty accurate?

Rural rugby is quite intense – we

train two times a week and everyone

takes it pretty seriously. You could

probably argue its a level below the

town rugby but in some cases there

are some really good teams out in

Ellesmere this year with Southbridge

and Waihora and Burnham-

Dunsandel-Irwell are all very strong

sides so it’s a strong competition.

I guess you probably would

have played rugby yourself in your

younger days?

I never played rugby – I played

rugby league. I moved out into the

the Murray Cooper Shield for the 11th straight season. Co-coach Daryl Petheram is next to

Hutchison. Below: Chiefs player Andrew Horrell was coached by Hutchison at the junior level.

country and there was no rugby

league out here and our boys started

playing rugby.

There must have been some

pretty good rivalries built up over

the years between Lincoln and

other clubs – which is the team you

most want to beat?

Lincoln and Waihora have still got

a fierce rivalry. They play each year

for the Sparks Trophy and that has

been going on for some time and

obviously they came to try and take

the shield off us a couple of weeks

ago but they didn’t quite get there.

What does the future hold for

Lincoln rugby over the next couple

of years do you think?

We are in the rebuilding stage, it

was a tough year last year for our

division one side but we have shown

some good improvement this year

and were pretty competitive so I

think it is heading in the right direction.

What do you do for a living?

I’m the chief executive of a company

called Teltrac Communications

– a telecommunications contracting


Have you done any other sorts

of jobs before joining Teltrac?

No, I worked for Telecom as a

telephone technician and then I got

the opportunity to get involved

with Teltrac as one of the

shareholders and have

been here for 25 years


When did you first

move to Selwyn and

where did you come


I’m a West Coaster.

I come from Blackball

and then I transferred over there in

1975 and got married in 1976 and in

1979 we moved out into the country.

Was it on the West Coast that

you played rugby league?

Yes, I played for Blackball and

Waro-Rakau. Then I played at senior

level for Marist-Western when I

came over here.

Is it a bit more of a rugby league

culture over there is it?

It was where I came from – it was

just all rugby league in Blackball.

What do you like to do in your

spare time out of work?

I have got a 2ha block so that

keeps me busy, I do a lot of gardening

because I like to grow my own

vegetables and I am a keen follower

of racehorses. But family is the most

important thing.

How much longer do you think

you will be coaching?

This is my last year, I’m getting

too old. I’m just happy to see

the team heading back in

the right direction. The

longevity of my coaching

is probably a reflection

on the club – they have

been bloody good, and

little plug in here

Dickson chases Olympic gold

Sam Dickson cut his

teeth playing rugby

for West Melton. Next

month he will stand

on the world’s biggest

sporting stage – the

Rio Olympics. Gordon

Findlater talks to Dickson

about how lucky he

is to be competing at

the games, following a

miraculous return from


LESS THAN three months ago

Sam Dickson lay in the middle

of the field in agony at the Hong

Kong sevens tournament.

His teammates were celebrating

a last minute game winning

try against Kenya.

But Dickson was contemplating

how bad the knee injury he

had just sustained could be.

“First of all, I thought it was

just my [medial collateral ligament],

which is usually about

eight weeks out.

“Then I went and had an MRI

and found out the next day the

[anterior cruciate ligament] was

ruptured, which wasn’t great


“To be honest, I thought Rio

was completely out of the picture.”

A ruptured ACL would in

almost any circumstance mean

surgery and at least six months

out of the game.

The lure of the Olympic Games

was enough for the 26-year-old

to take a risk and go the non-traditional

method of attempting to

recover from the injury without

surgery. A decision that would


Dickson has recovered

from a serious injury and is

now gearing up for the Rio

Olympics, where he hopes

to win gold with the New

Zealand Sevens team. ​

keep his Rio dream alive.

The odds were not in Dickson’s

favour. However, his knee recovered

to the point where he could

take part in the sevens trial camp

three weeks ago.

“I hadn’t done much field stuff

by then.

“To be honest, I didn’t have a

lot of confidence going into that,

but I managed to get through it

and I was pretty happy with the

way i went.”

With his knee holding up to

the test, Dickson accomplished

the goal that just a few month

ago he would have seen as a long

shot. Being named in the sevens

squad for the Rio Olympics.

Sevens didn’t enter Dickson’s

mind until 2012, spending 17

years coming through the grades

as an emerging flanker.

Dickson’s rugby career began

as a five-year-old playing midget

rugby for West Melton.

He would play through the

grades for the club, even playing

afternoon games in the country

competition after playing for

his secondary school team, St

Thomas, in the morning.

After going on to play first

XV rugby in his final year at

St Thomas, Dickson spent two

years playing for Marist Albion

colts before rejoining his boyhood

club, West Melton.

He would go on to captain the

side as well as lead the Ellesmere

and Canterbury Country representative

Sevens team.

The Laboratory and Arts On Tour announce

their next event on Monday 25 July will be

Everest Untold, an engrossing homage to

epic expeditions. Part climbing experience,

part history lesson and part personal

revelation, Everest Untold gives “…the

untold story all New Zealanders should

know” about the 1953 Everest expedition in

which Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay

reached the summit of Mt Everest. Written

by Gareth Davies and produced by Ffynroc

Productions, the touring play features

Stephen Lovatt as Everest expedition leader

Sir John Hunt, and Edwin Wright as ‘the

other Kiwi’ - Hawkes Bay born George


Through this partnership, Davies reveals

stories of sheer grit, determination and

ambition in a dangerously inhospitable

environment. For British Army Colonel Sir

John Hunt, it’s all about the grand plan: For

Lowe, experienced climber, schoolmaster

with a can-do attitude, it’s all about the

men. We also learn of the other men in the

expedition – a physicist, geologist, doctor,

cameraman, mountaineers and, of course,

the Nepalese Sherpas. The play explores the

cultural differences and divides, but also the

passion to climb that all the members share.

The Laboratory is opening especially on

a Monday (when normally closed) so

the whole venue will be given over to this

fantastic show. Doors open at 5.30pm and

the play starts at 7pm (60 mins no interval).

The bar will be open with a delicious menu

available on the night but seats are limited,

so do book a table by calling 325 3006 if you

have purchased a ticket and want to ensure

you get a great seat to dine before the play


Tickets are $25 and available over the bar or

in Rio sevens

He made the Canterbury NPC

wider-training squad in 2012.

But the catalogue of talented

loose forwards in the Canterbury

ranks meant opportunities

were limited with the likes of

Nasi Manu, George Whitelock,

Luke Whitelock, Matt Todd,

Kieran Read, Richie McCaw and

Jordan Taufua among the ranks.

Sir Gordon Tietjens was looking

for a new crop of players to

bring into his sevens squad in


Former Canterbury NPC

coach Tabai Matson recognised

something in Dickson that he

believed could translate to the

seven-man game and had the

flanker attend a sevens training


After impressing at the camp,

Dickson was selected to play in

the 2012 Safari sevens tournament

in Kenya. It was the first

sevens tournament he had

played in, having never previously

played at secondary school

or provincial level.

“It was a bit of a shock to the

system really. The altitude in

Kenya was pretty high, plus we

played six games in one day.”

Tietjens was impressed with

the debut and selected Dickson

in the sevens squad for the upcoming

Gold Coast tournament.

Tweaking a hamstring a day out

from the tournament, though,

meant he was forced to wait for

his New Zealand debut.

Just a month later, he had his

opportunity in Dubai. Dickson

was contracted for the remainder

of the season and claimed

his first IRB sevens title in December

2012 in South Africa. He

would go on to win that year’s

IRB Sevens World Series with

New Zealand.

Dickson’s career could have

taken a very different path at one


In 2010, he was asked by a

friend to play a game of AFL

(Australian Rules) in Christchurch

“I played a few games, learned

the rules and just got better and

better. All of a sudden i was

playing for New Zealand and

went to the International Cup in


Following his performances

for New Zealand in Australia,

Dickson was scouted by Australian

club side St Kilda. But at 22,

he was seen as being slightly too

old to mould into a professional.

With his path now well and

truly heading towards Rio,

Dickson is confident having

another four weeks to get back

to full fitness.

If New Zealand is able to win

gold at the sevens, the victory

will surely taste even sweeter for

Dickson who, at the moment, is

feeling healthy, lucky and ready

to play.

begins on August 6.

Explore Selwyn with our

walking and biking guide

Want to get out and explore Selwyn’s spectacular scenery?

Now you can with the help of a new 77-page walking and biking guide to our district. The Council

developed the guide for local residents and tourists and it’s now available from local libraries and

online at (under the brochures link).

The guide lists 67 different walks and 17 biking tracks. It include sections covering short walks and

longer walks by area, along with maps of different routes. The guide also has useful information

such as walk times and distance, intensity and whether routes are wheelchair accessible.

Selwyn has a huge range of fantastic walks and cycle tracks across different landscapes, with easy

and more advanced options on the plains, in local townships and in our high country where you can

enjoy our wonderful scenery,” says Elizabeth Pitcorn, Selwyn Tourism Advisor.

“We hope local residents will pick up a copy of the new guide and enjoy using it to explore Selwyn.”

Future plans for Rolleston Reserve

Consultation on a land exchange proposal is now underway affecting Rolleston Reserve and Foster Park.

This proposal would see the reserve status on 4.3 hectares of land at Rolleston Reserve (around

half the reserve) being transferred to 30 hectares of land at Foster Park. The exchange of part of

Rolleston reserve would provide extra land which can be used to create a town centre for Rolleston,

accommodating new shops, businesses, places to eat, a new library and town square, and space for

people to relax.

The remaining part of the reserve would be developed into an exciting urban park with a range of

features that may include a playground, youth park and other features such as a community pavilion

and water feature. Having the park close to shops and the library will attract people to use it for

relaxation and gathering. The

playcentre, scout facility, tennis and

Tennyson Street

netball courts will remain at the park.

The redesign of the park will be

subject to a separate consultation

will be held on Tuesday 19 July

between 6-8.30pm at the Council’s

Rolleston Headquarters. More

information on the exchange and

a submission/objection form is

available at

Proposed play area

haveyoursay or from Council service

centres. Objections/submissions on

the proposal can be made until 5pm

on Friday 29 July 2016.

Remember to register your dog

in July

During July dog owners will need to register or re-register their

dogs. Owners need to register by 31 July and registering your dog

by this date enables you to take advantage of a discounted dog

registration rate.

You can register your dog online. To use the system you need your

customer and dog owner number. Dog owners who provided the

Council with their email address would have received an email from

Council on 20 June with this information. If you didn’t receive an

email you should have been posted dog registration papers in late

June with these numbers. Whether you received an email or were

posted papers you can register your dog online.

To use the new system please visit and select

the dog registration story on the website homepage. Click on the

link provided in the story which will take you to the registration form.

You will need to log in with your email address and password which

you will use again to register your dog next year. Once you’ve done

this please check your details are correct on the online form. If you

need to change your address, add or take off a dog you can do this

on the form. Then you can make an online payment.

Once you have completed registration payment a strip or disc

dog tag will be posted to you within two weeks. If this is not your

preference please email with your

owner number.

You can also pay your dog registration fee at a Council service centre.

If your dog registration papers were posted rather than emailed to

you, this is because we don’t have your email address so please

email with your owner number and your

email address. This will allow us to email you in the future regarding

dog registration.

These two near identical Jack Russell terriers both called Scruffy have different

owners and live in Southbridge and West Melton. They met while being registered in

Rolleston and received their new blue registration tags for next year.

New president

for Malvern

Lions Club

• By Caitlin Miles


welcomed their new president

and said goodbye to an original


District councillor and Lions

member John Morten took over

from previous president Brian

Davidson at the organisation’s last


The Lions also said farewell to

Murray Faulkner, who had been

in the club since it began 45 years

ago. He left because he recently

moved to Ashburton.

Mr Davidson was the

president of the Malvern Lions

“Every year there is a new

president elected. That way we

keep things moving,” said Mr


Mr Morten said being the president

would “not mean much” if

it wasn’t for the team of people in

the organisation.

“You’re really only steering

the ship, there are all the sailors

putting in the hard work,” Mr

Morten said.

With a club of 54 members Mr

Morten hopes to have an exciting

and successful year.

Don’t let frost get to your pruned roses

THERE IS more written about

pruning roses than almost any

other aspect of their care.

Yet, why do we prune our


Here are a few key reasons:

Encourage new growth and

more blooms. Maintain the

health of the rose by removing

old wood, improve air circulation

within the bush.

Maintain a specific shape,

especially for climbing and pillar

roses, and those that are pegged


Not all roses have the same

need to be pruned, some just

need an annual “going over’’

after flowering to remove the

dead wood. Other roses, most

notably the highly bred hybrid

teas and floribundas, need regular

pruning. If you garden on a

light, sandy soil then prune your

roses only lightly as they will not

be able to support the vigorous

new growth that hard pruning


The time to tackle pruning

is in the winter while they are

dormant, before they burst into

growth. In some areas of New

Zealand, and in some seasons,

there may seem to be almost

no period of dormancy and so

you must choose your moment

carefully. So do not prune when

PRISTINE: Hard pruning roses will produce more vigorous new


there is still a risk of severe frost,

as any new growth will be frosted

and die back.

You will have to cut back to

the next bud, reducing the plant


Most bush roses flower on the

current year’s growth.

A hard prune will produce

more vigorous new growth.

Remove the oldest cane on the

plant; this keeps the bush fresh

and vigorous.

Then reduce thick, strong stems

by about half their height. Thin

canes need to be cut back to onethird

their height.

Try to keep the centre of the

plant open. A mess of spindly,

twiggy growth in the middle of

the plant restricts light and air

circulation, encouraging disease.

Time to plant deciduous trees

GOING INTO the middle

of winter, air and soil

temperatures are low, the soil

is often very wet, and frosts are

in many parts of southern New


July is the main month for

planting new deciduous trees,

shrubs, fruit trees and roses,

and garden centres are now

fully stocked with these plants.

Always select high quality

specimens and plant correctly

with plenty of compost into the

existing soil.

In the vege patch, continue

planting and harvesting

broccoli, brussel sprouts,

cabbages, cauliflower, silverbeet

and spinach. Where soil

conditions allow, you can start

preparing the vege garden

for spring planting. In late

July, chop up and dig in green

manure crops like lupins or


If you have roses, complete

your annual pruning, especially

on bush or standards that

produce flowers late into early

winter such as Icebergs.

Remove all dead and weak

growth, clean out the centre of

plants and prune to outward

facing buds. Add fresh compost

to the soil around the rose

plant, but do not fertilise until

spring arrives.

In warmer, sheltered areas,

citrus production should be

in full swing, with clementine

mandarins, lemons, limes and

navel oranges all now maturing.

Check your trees while

picking fruit for any

overcrowding or weak branches

that should be removed. Check

for any root stock growth and

prune where required. For

colder climates, use frost cloths

to protect frost tender citrus.

Give fruit trees a second

winter clean up. Spray

with a copper compound

or lime sulphur to kill any

overwintering fungal diseases.

Now’s the time to prune your

blackberries, boysenberries,

loganberries, or raspberries.

Cut out all old canes and any

weak spindly growth. New

season strong canes should

then be tied up on wires or

fences to help support this

summer’s fruit crop.

Complete your strawberry

plantings this month. Purchase

new plants or obtain young

plants (runners) from the

previous season strawberry

plants. For the home garden,

plant at least 20 strawberry

plants to ensure plenty of fresh

strawberries for the whole

and thinning. Remove old

wood completely as there will

be ample new growth in spring.

Make sure you cut just above

a node as it is from here that

spring growth will appear.

Flowering winter shrubs

like azaleas, camellias and

rhododendrons will provide

lovely colour in your garden.

Take note of what varieties or

species are performing best in

your garden or in neighbouring

gardens for next year’s new


Winter flowering annuals

will be at their very best in

July. Primulas, violas, pansies,

should all be in full bloom.

Continue to dead head from

these plants to encourage

continual flowering.

Thanks to charlotte for her question.

I want to try and grow some seed potatoes this year, what do I need

to do to prepare the ground, and how do I plant them?

Yum! Freshly dug potatoes out of your own garden – you will love

them! Here are some tips for you.

1. Choose an area to create your garden if you haven’t done so already. Make sure it gets the

sun! Dig through some Organic Compost and Sheep Pellets. If you are planting them in pots,

make sure you get a good quality mix!

2. Spread the seed potatoes out in a dry area and allow the sprouts

to develop to approximately 1 to 2 centimetres in length.

3. Planting: Create a trough - ideally in a sunny sheltered area -

roughly 15 centimetres in depth and add Intelligro’s Potato

Fertiliser at a rate of 200g per square metre. Mix into the soil. Fill

the trough with the fertilised soil back to 10 centimetres high. For

pot planting, make sure they have good drainage.

4. Place the seed potatoes 25 centimetres apart in a row with the sprouts

pointing upwards before gently covering with the remaining soil.

5. Continue to mound the soil around the potato plant as it grows to around

5 to 10 centimetres high, as this will protect the potatoes from greening

and insect damage.

6. Once harvested store in a cool dark place to retain their freshness.

More efficient

site maintenance

the goal during winter shutdown

Fonterra is currently undertaking

a winter maintenance programme with

the aim of delivering savings for the cooperative

as it gets “match-fit” for spring.

Director of nZ Manufacturing Mark

Leslie said this “winter shut” period is an

important time of year for manufacturing

teams, as all assets across Fonterra’s network

of sites are fine-tuned to ensure they are

ready for the season ahead.

“each year we process around 18 billion

litres of milk, with the bulk of this carried

out in the spring months. The work we’re

doing now will help us get match-fit for that

peak period.”

Mr Leslie says the goal for manufacturing

teams in this year’s winter shut has been

finding more effective and efficient ways to

maintain sites for the coming season.

“together, Fonterra and industry are

focused on ensuring we can produce quality

product for our customers and support

farmers under a constrained milk price.

“We have always been efficient in our

maintenance projects, so the challenge

this year was to come up with new and

innovative ways to do things better, faster

and smarter.”

Hundreds of Fonterra manufacturing site

staff are taking part in the annual winter

work, with more than 500 projects currently

underway around the country, ranging from

major capital works to minor overhauls.

Winter shutdown manager at te rapa

Blair Bond puts the improvements down

to an ongoing “owner’s mindset” across the

manufacturing teams.

“every person on our team is on the same

page. We treat the assets as if we were their

owners – putting ourselves in our farmers’

shoes and thinking about how we can do

things more effectively and drop our bottom


“This work during the winter shut has

also led to innovative thinking that will

change the way we process milk during the

milking season.”

Mr Bond gives the example of the D4

evaporator – which evaporates water out of

the milk to then be turned into powder. The

team came up with an innovative way of

splitting the process into stages, which will

allow the evaporator to run for six per cent

longer meaning more milk can be processed

each day.

Mr Bond adds: “it’s year-round for us.

Throughout the entire year we’re talking to

other sites about what worked for them and

leveraging our collective strength to help

our co-operative deliver.”

Research into nocturnal habits

aims to boost pest control

Knowing if nocturnal pest mammals are more affected by the phases of the

moon or by illumination could bring new Zealand a step closer to being pest

free and save control agencies significant sums of money.

LincoLn University ecology Master’s

student shannon Gilmore’s research into the

effect lunar phases and illumination have on

activity levels in possums, stoats, rats and

mice is aimed at finding more effective and

efficient means of targeting and managing

these pests.

“it costs millions every year to control

their populations,” Ms Gilmore says.

“We’re waging a kind of war on pests. We

need to discover their weaknesses. What trait

do all four have in common that we can take

advantage of? They are all nocturnal, and

many nocturnal animals dramatically reduce

their activity with the full moon, while

others can become more active.

“if i can discover their preferences and

am able to predict whether a full moon

would make a pest more active, increasing

the likelihood of it encountering bait or a

trap, then we could decide when it is worth

deploying controls. it’s a fine-tuning of our

battle plan. ”

Ms Gilmore’s research follows on from

similar studies, but past researchers were

unable to accurately measure illumination

levels, a significant drawback as they couldn’t

determine whether the animals were

responding to the moon’s cycle or the change

in light levels. The recent availability of lowcost,

portable, weather-resistant and highly

sensitive sky Quality Meters (sQM’s) used

by astronomers could be a game changer.

“i’ll be able to calculate an illumination

level throughout a night and this may give

some insight. conditions such as cloud

cover, season, weather and urban light

pollution will also be considered.”

she is conducting her fieldwork on

Banks Peninsula, which provides a variety

of habitats and easy access to possums.

camera traps and bite marks on non-toxic

wax tags at each field site record the activity

levels of the pests.

While the broad objective is to discover

how the activity levels of possums, rats,

stoats and mice change with moon phase or

illumination levels, testing new equipment

a better way to measure illumination levels,

Ms Gilmore says discovering the lunar

phase and illumination preferences of

pest animals has the potential to provide

organisations such as the Department of

conservation, regional councils and other

agencies with practical information they can


“streamlining pest control operations

means less material assets wasted and

reduced labour intensity. conservation

work has a reputation for a general lack of

cash and any savings tend to be warmly


Ms Gilmore says the study would not have

been as successful without funding from

the Brian Mason trust, whose mission is to

advance scientific objectives in canterbury

and has facilitated efforts to make new

Zealand pest free.

Skoda Fabia wagon a good value purchase

• By Ross Kiddie

THE JUNE 23 referendum

which resulted in Great Britain’s

withdrawal from the European

Union has taken the world by


There will be a long period

of global financial uncertainty

before stability returns and that

will also affect many aspects of

our down under economies.

In the short term, imported

goods will most certainly rise,

including motor vehicles, especially

those sourced from Europe.

That being the case, there’s

probably no better time to buy a

European car, and if your budget

is a little restricted but you need

a reliable practical car, Skoda has

the answer.

A new Fabia has just landed

and it lists from $19,990. It

arrives here in three variants,

and I was lucky enough to land

a drive in the range-topping station

wagon which, incidentally,

lists at an amazing $26,990,

making it, what I believe to be

one of the bargain purchases in

today’s new car market.

The Fabia wagon, or Combi,

as Skoda badge it, is powered

by a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder

engine. Before you scoff at its

meagre displacement, bear in

mind that it produces 81kW

and has a healthy 175Nm of

torque thanks to turbocharged

boost. If you take into account

the areas where peak power and

maximum torque are developed

(4600rpm-5600rpm and

1400rpm-4000rpm respectively),

there is an unimpeded supply of

power from very low in the rev

band, providing a spirited drive

through a seven-speed direct

shift automatic gearbox.

If fuel usage is also an important

buying criteria, the Fabia

Combi is listed with a 4.8-litre

per 100km (58mpg) combined

cycle average.

You don’t have to try hard to

replicate that, I wasn’t gentle

with the throttle during my time

in the test car, yet it was easy to

have the fuel usage readout listing

around 6l/100km (47mpg),

that along with an instantaneous

readout of 4.6l/100km (62mpg)

I’ve often written about the

prowess, and if you combined

that with Volkswagen’s manufacturing

ideology of quality and

efficiency you won’t be disappointed

with Fabia. The entire

package is one of practicality

and functionality.

fall readily to hand. It’s fair to

say the Fabia isn’t overly complicated,

there aren’t a lot of

functions to speak of, but the

essentials are there, and there is

enough kit to still consider the

purchase a bargain.

I took the test car on my usual

high country drive beneath the

Malvern Hills and found it to

be a spirited, well-handling car

which quickly endears itself.

Handling-wise it is directional

of energy. It is responsive and

willing, easily offering the performance

needed for a highway

The Fabia Combi really

appealed to me, it is car that

feels just right from the moment

you hop into it. I’m hoping that

amidst all the uncertainty in

Europe at the moment that good

cars like it, and the hundreds

of others which find their way

from the Continent to New

Zealand, won’t be affected by

Britain’s decision to go it alone.

A ClAss ACt

Faye homes’ show home at te Whāriki in Lincoln offers

many ideas in house design.

With 238 square metres of floor space and

four bedrooms, the Vernon design is an

ideal home for families or couples with no


On entering, it is apparent that

considerable thought has gone into the

execution of this house. it is light, bright and

airy with plenty of windows and there is a

high standard of finish.

Those who enjoy cooking and entertaining

will be drawn to the kitchen, which blends

stylishly with its neighbouring dining and

living spaces. The butler’s pantry is the

perfect complement. it comes with sink

and window for outside viewing, making it

a perfect room for food preparation and to

hide away the dirty dishes, especially as the

fridge and freezer are also situated there.

in the kitchen, side by side ovens take

away the need to bend and offer extra

cooking space when catering for larger

numbers. textured tiles line the wall behind

the cooktop right up to the ceiling, offset by

cabinetry that is fitted down from the ceiling

and into which are incorporated the range

hood and lighting. The effect is unique,

classy and more spacious.

Acrylic panelling on the kitchen cabinetry

and recessed handles give a seamless look in

this top of the line kitchen that includes deep

double sinks, a tower mixer complete with

extendable hose, engineered stone bench

which at 50 millimetres is thicker than usual,

and the waterfall legs that support the extra

wide island, making it ideal for dining,

socialising or working on.

Boxed ceilings are features in both the

lounge and living room. in the latter living

space, tiles have been used to great effect,

as backing for the fireplace wall which has

a nifty shelf halfway up and wall mounted

television directly above.

All the smaller bedrooms have double

wardrobes and the main bedroom, a walkin

robe and ensuite. This room is tucked

away at the other end of the house offering

privacy; an attractive feature if teenagers or

additional adults are living there. A really

nice touch too, is the built-in cabinetry in

the wardrobes, ensuite, storage cupboards

and in the living room and main bedroom

where the space might also be adapted into a

study nook.

Both the main bathroom and ensuite are

fully tiled. The former has bath and glass

shower while the ensuite, a walk-in tiled

shower and double vanity.

Storage is excellent, in the separate laundry

which has cupboards and a bench, the

two very generous hall cupboards, and the

cylinder cupboard that is neatly tucked away

at the end of the hallway near the double


This house has a hi/five roof, plaster finish

Computing For Free - still going strong after 15 years

Ara Institute of Canterbury (formerly CPIT)

has provided free computer courses at four

hubs across Christchurch for over 15 years.

Now, it is evolving to better connect a wide

variety of learners with accessible training for

basic computer skills or upskilling to improve

career opportunities.

Computing For Free manager Peter Nock

says that over 19,000 people have accessed

free or affordable training so far. “Originally

we offered short, non-assessed computer

courses as the government saw the need for

adults to upskill in this area. We created a

friendly and welcoming place to get started

on computing skills, and we still do this, but

now we also do a whole lot more.”

At hubs in New Brighton, Bishopdale, Hornby,

Rangiora, Christchurch’s Madras Street and

now also in Timaru, Ara staff continue to

support community learning needs through

Computing For Free.

We help people

get to where they

want to go.

further skills for their particular job or to take

the next step in their career.”

The course timetables are designed to

be flexible to fit around family and

professional commitments.

“Our approach works,” Peter says. “We

consistently deliver quality and receive

excellent student feedback. We help people

to get where they want to go.”

Peter Nock

Computing For Free Manager

“There is still a range of self-paced, short

courses of between 20 to 40 hours to

introduce people to specific programs like

web design and Powerpoint. However, we

also offer business and job-seeking courses,

and the National Certificate in Computing,

which is a formal qualification that employers

recognise and value.”

The courses are facilitated by tutors who are

on-hand to provide support. “Our staff are

passionate about the courses they teach and

the communities they teach in, providing a

really great experience for our students.”

Computing for Free is offered through

Ara Connect, which introduces learners

across the Canterbury region to skills that

are industry-relevant and designed to help

achieve career goals.

Peter adds that computer skills are a

necessity in today’s professional environment.

“Everyone needs to know their way around a

computer and some people need to acquire

Upskilling leads to teaching role

Jo Harkerss had reached a crossroad in

her life when she enrolled in a Computing

For Free programme at Ara Institute of

Canterbury’s Bishopdale hub. Now she is a

computing tutor helping others to succeed.

Why did you first enrol in

Computing For Free?

I was on maternity leave when I was made

redundant from my job. Both my sister and

my mother were enrolled at the New Brighton

hub – that’s how I found out about it. I’ve

always enjoyed computing and I wanted to

use my time wisely to upskill myself.

What are you doing now?

I’m working as a tutor at Computing For Free!

What do you enjoy about your job?

It’s very cool helping other people to succeed.

The hardest thing is for people to walk in the

door. Then they realise that we are really nice!

And that they can do it. You see people come

in who feel afraid of computers, but we are

here to help them to achieve. Study is not easy

for everyone, but our programmes have a

good balance of theory and practice, plus the

programmes are self-paced to fit around other

commitments such as work and family.

For many people it is a huge stepping stone.

They may have been made redundant or been

out of the workforce after having children.

Here they can connect with other people and

learn new skills that will make them more

employable and give them confidence to

try other things too. They might have used

computers in the past, but programmes

change and skills need to be updated.

What sort of feedback do you get?

Because we’re like a family, once people

have finished their studies here, they come

back and tell us what they’re doing. Our

programmes lead into further computing

studies at Ara, or they can help you to find

work. I think most importantly,

our students get a taste of what they’re

capable of. They develop computer skills but

they also develop confidence and brush up

on the soft skills, such as communication

and networking, that employers value in

today’s workplaces.

We’re here to help make your enrolment easy. Please call, email or visit our website for more information.

employee. Having an understanding of the

appearance, keyboard commands and ways

in which the computer operating system

works will make you more valuable to

your employer.

2. Word processing skills

4. Using email

Many workplaces now use email as their

primary method of communication.

Having a good understanding of how to

use it is essential. Knowing about correct

email etiquette is also important as it’s

easy to convey the wrong message when

communicating in text only.

spreadsheets, databases and presentations.

Being familiar with these programmes is an

essential skill to possess.

A large amount of businesses store their files on

computer networks that can vary in complexity.

Being able to organise your files effectively is a

desirable skill for many employers.

10. Understanding basic

do need to understand the difference

between the various parts of the computer

like the “hard drive”, “modem” and “router”.

Knowing the names of the parts and their

functions will make it much easier to get

help when you need to report a problem

to tech support.

Word processing is an absolutely essential

skill in today’s job market. Many employers

require their staff to be able to proficiently

write, edit, and produce a variety of

documents using a computer.

3. Using the internet

Being able to confidently use the internet

is crucial for job seekers. Having the ability

to complete research by browsing various

websites or by using search engines can

allow you to easily find things out – useful for

both work and home life!

6. Using the cloud

space and is commonly used to store, send

and receive files. Many businesses make use

of this technology to allow their employees

to share and collaborate on files and
