$12m for Lake Ellesmere

clean-up ‘not enough’

Bryan Jenkins

• By Tom Doudney

A $12 million programme to

clean up Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere won’t be enough and

irrigation schemes like Central

Plains Water will make the

situation worse, a water expert

says.

Dr Bryan Jenkins of the Waterways

Centre for Freshwater

Management recently completed

a study of six New Zealand lakes,

including Te Waihora.

Environment Canterbury and

Ngai Tahu, in partnership with

the Government, are leading

the $12 million Whakaora Te

Waihora programme to restore

the lake over the coming decades

by encouraging the growth of

macrophytes – aquatic plants

which can improve water

quality.

Dr Jenkins said that while this

and other efforts to reduce nutrient

loads in the lake’s catchment

were positive, they would be insufficient

to achieve sustainable

water quality due to intensification

which had taken place in the

catchment.

There was already too much

nitrogen and phosphorus carried

by groundwater-fed streams

entering the lake. With Central

Plains Water and other intensification

in the catchment it was

estimated that the nitrogen load

entering the lake would reach

5600 tonnes per year.

Dr Jenkins said the Selwyn

Waihora Zone Committee’s

‘good management practice’

approach would cut that to

4800 tonnes per year but for the

goal of transforming it into a

macrophyte lake to be achieved,

nitrogen would need to be cut

to more like 800 tonnes per

year.

“What we are currently experiencing

is already unacceptable

not only in terms of the lake load

but also in terms of the impacts

occurring on groundwater with

respect to drinking water quality

and on groundwater-fed stream

flow,” Dr Jenkins said.

“More

go.

Less

mow.”

When Gordon and Janet retired

they downsized from their large

acreage to a very generous section

in Faringdon and that’s when the

good life kicked into full throttle!

Luckily there’s less to mow but

still enough that Janet agreed to

Gordon keeping the ride-on!

$12m lake

clean-up

‘not enough’

•From page 1

ECan acting science

director Tim Davie said Dr

Jenkins’ figures, while not

incorrect, were selective and

missed the point.

“There are many different

proposed interventions, not

just nitrogen reduction,” Mr

Davie said.

“If you tried to achieve

a macrophyte-dominated

lake purely by reducing

nitrogen then a nitrogen

load of 800 tonnes per year

would be required. However,

if there is a range of

other interventions, such as

phosphorus reduction and

stabilised lake level, then

a macrophyte-dominated

lake can be achieved with

higher nitrogen concentrations.”

Mr Davie said ECan

agreed that a reduction in

land use intensification

was required and improved

management practises

would achieve this.

Central Plains Water chief

executive Derek Crombie

was unavailable for comment.

Action over piggery

UNDER A CLOUD: These pictures of dust coming from the

Bates’ family’s pig farm on Thompsons Rd were sent to the

Selwyn Times by an angry neighbour. ​

• By Tom Doudney

A PIG farm near Burnham,

which has fallen foul of its

neighbours, has been given

three weeks to remove all pigs

from the property.

The 20ha Thompsons Rd

property has been owned and

run by Chris and Melanie Bates

and their son Henry Bates since

2012.

After the Bates converted the

property into a pig farm, outraged

neighbours complained

of smell, odour, noise and traffic

issues relating to the pigs, and

the district council issued an

abatement notice.

In 2013, the Bates lost an Environment

Court case with the

district council over whether

they needed resource consent

for the farm which had about

230 pigs at that stage.

They were subsequently

granted resource consent but

that expired in June.

Chris Bates recently suspended

the application process

for a new resource consent and

asked for it to be put on hold

while he gathered some more

information to address concerns

that district council planners

had raised.

District council environmental

services manager Tim Harris

said the Bates had been given

two weeks [from last Friday]

to remove all pigs except

lactating sows, and three

weeks to remove the lactating

sows.

“Mr Bates has asked for an

indefinite suspension to the

application and we have advised

him by email that the council is

not minded to allow the activity

to continue while he gathers

information for the hearing,”

Mr Harris said.

“Accordingly, while council

have not issued an abatement

notice, we have requested that

he ceases operation immediately

or re-engage with the resource

consent process.”

The Bates family were

unavailable for comment yesterday.

In Brief

MOTORBIKE ACCIDENT

A man in his 40s was seriously

injured in a motorbike accident

on a private property on Weedons

Ross Rd on Sunday. An ambulance

was called at about 2.20pm and the

man was taken to Christchurch

Hospital.

FIRE STATION LAND

The district council has confirmed

the sale of a 3400sqm site on

Kidman St, Rolleston, to the fire

service. The fire service intends

to develop a new station on the

site, which is adjacent to the new

St John Ambulance facility, in

the next three to five years. The

sale price of $910,000 was agreed

through a joint market valuation

process. The fire service has agreed

to lease a storage shed on the site

back to the district council until

construction begins.

COMMUNITY CENTRE

Construction of the new $3.3

million Dunsandel Community

Centre is expected to start next

month. The district council has

appointed Arrow International

as the lead contractor for the

construction of the project.

Funding for the project is from

a variety of sources including

grants, insurance, reserve funds,

development contributions,

community fundraising and a loan

to be funded by a targeted rate.

Critical thinking shortage

Graham

Townsend

writes this

week’s

opinion

piece

about the

lack of critical thinking

when it comes to

topics such as climate

change

I’ve spent a lifetime

teaching science.

If you define science to

include critical thinking,

I count the efforts of New

Zealand as a total failure.

Why?

Because critical thinking

is the ability to examine

evidence and conflicting

claims without allowing

prejudices or personal

interest to intrude.

And critical thinking,

sadly, is in seriously short

supply today.

This is what the

pioneering psychologist

William James meant

when he said that “A great

many people think they

are thinking, when they

are merely rearranging

their prejudices.”

An example: climate

change.

Comment threads and

twitter feeds are full of unsupported

prejudice rather

than fact.

“Climate change is not

happening”; “scientists

are all lying to get more

funding for their research”;

“climate always changes,

it’s not our fault”; “we are

due for a new ice age so

climate change is good”.

People who post this

rubbish ignore that fact

that science is a merciless

process of critically analysing

both the raw data and

the predictions made from

them.

I invite any lay-person

who thinks they can do

better to submit their own

analysis to the global science

community.

Fame and possibly fortune

awaits you if you can

prove the current consensus

wrong.

So why do these denier

memes refuse to die?

Simply because we can’t

face the conclusion that we

– all of us – are changing

the climate.

That unpleasant fact hits

at the heart of our whole

lifestyle: our love affair

with cars, jet skis, quad

bikes and flying.

So the hands go over the

ears and we start coming

up with excuses and lies.

Let me state this clearly:

every major national science

academy around the

world has examined the

evidence and they are all

seriously concerned.

So what do we do?

Individual actions are

not enough – we need policy

changes at a national

and international level.

Politicians generally follow

public opinion – they

will do nothing until we

demand action.

And that won’t happen

until enough of us face the

truth.

That brings me back

to education and critical

thinking.

H.G Wells famously said

“Human history becomes

more and more a race

between education and

catastrophe”.

That’s never been truer

or more urgent than today.

Use your vote wisely.

Footpath funding boost

• By Caitlin Miles

FUNDING FOR footpath extensions

has had a 500 per cent increase.

The original budget for footpaths was

$50,000 which then got increased to

$100,000. The district council decided to

increase the budget to $500,000 in the

annual plan for 2016-2017.

This will allow for 6km of new footpath

to laid later this year and into 2017.

Mayor Kelvin Coe said the district

council decided to increase the budget

because of the comments made about

footpaths in submissions received about

the annual plan.

“As a result of submissions the council

plans to increase the budget for footpath

extension work from $100,000 to

$500,000,” Mayor Coe said.

The council received 47 submissions

from the public about footpaths, cycleways

and walkways.

The extensions will be district wide

and will provide new sections of footpaths

on both sides of the street and

getting new footpaths to connection to

schools.

District council corporate services

manager Greg Bell said the increase in

cost will be covered from the increased

income or expenditure savings made by

the district council from 2015/2016 and

2016/2017.

Rolleston Residents’ Association

chairwoman Nicole Reid said the association

had asked for funding to rise

from $100,000 to $200,000.

“We asked for it to be doubled but they

put $500,000 which was quite a bonus,”

Ms Reid said.

District council transport asset manager

Andrew Mazey said the work on

extending the footpaths will be spread

around the district.

“Councillors were keen to ensure

that the benefits of such work should be

spread across the district as some smaller

townships have requested footpath

extensions for some time that needed to

be addressed,” Mr Mazey said.

District councillor Sam Broughton

said this will connect the townships

better.

“Some well established and older communities

only have one footpath along

a road or not complete footpaths so

this is about filling in those blanks,” Cr

Broughton said.

Boost for heritage properties

FOURTEEN HERITAGE

properties will get a makeover

and repairs thanks to a funding

grant.

The district council granted

$40,000 of funding to go

towards restoration and maintenance

work on the historic

buildings.

Tod Cottage in Lincoln has

received $2500 for the roof to be

re-done.

The cottage on East Belt was

built in 1858 and owned by

pioneers William and Mary

Tod who arrived in Canterbury

in 1841.

They lived in the house which

also served as Lincoln’s first

school as they educated their

own children and other local

children there.

St John’s Church on High St

in Leeston was granted $5500 to

rebuild a brick fence which was

damaged during the September

4, 2010, and February 22, 2011,

earthquakes.

The church dates from 1872,

the church building also suffered

earthquake damage and it

too has been restored.

The owner of a historic stable

block in Glentunnel, located

near the Millennium Walkway,

also received $2000.

The stables were built in 1877

and were used by the workers

at the Homebush Brick and

Tile Works to stable horses. The

money will be used to install

new beams to support the roof

which has weakened over the

years and with age.

District council strategy and

policy planner Jessica Tuilaepa,

said keeping the heritage

buildings in good condition is

important.

“The council is pleased to be

able to fund work which will

allow heritage buildings of importance

to the community to

be preserved for future generations

to enjoy,” she said.

Heritage grants were also

made to 10 other property owners

and three owners of heritage

trees to undertake projects.

No decision yet on Arthur’s Pass police

• By Andrew King

POLICE HAVE reassured

residents of Arthur’s Pass that

no decision has been made about

the relocation of their police

station or officer.

Superintendent John Price

met with about 40 people who

wanted to question the decision

to move the police station.

The residents are concerned

that with no station, police

would spend

less time in the

area.

Currently

the officer is

based between

Arthur’s Pass

and Rolleston

stations.

Police

have proposed that a kiosk be

added to the Department of

Conservation centre to replace

the current setup meaning

there would be a loss of

accommodation for an officer.

Superintendent Price (above)

said it was good to let them

know the decision had not been

finalised.

“It is good to have that

opportunity to hear first-hand

the concerns of the residents and

know that we are listening,” he

said.

“We are looking to improve

what we do, not make it

worse.”

Arthur’s Pass Community

Centre chairman and Arthur’s

Pass Alpine Motel owner Pete

Neale said the area required

more police attention not less.

“We have an officer here

probably 50 per cent of the time.

When our usual officer was

away having surgery last year we

had a spike in car break-ins and

other crimes. I think it would

get worse if we lost the ability to

have an officer here more often,”

he said.

have the right people in the

right place at the right time to

service our communities?’” he

said.

Consultation for the proposal

finished on July 14 with police

now considering its options of

either moving it or keeping it

where it is.

Consultation open

on the future of

Rolleston Reserve

CONSULTATION IS open on

the district council’s plans to

develop Rolleston Reserve into a

commercial and park area.

The district council agreed

to drop the reserve status from

Rolleston Reserve to develop over

half of it into a commercial and

retail area.

The other half will become a

high amenity park.

Dropping the reserve status

allows the district council to

develop 4.3ha of the reserve into a

retail area.

The remaining 4.2ha will be

developed into a park and will

include water features, and playground

equipment.

This land exchange is part of the

Rolleston Town Centre Plan.

District council open space and

property manager Mark Rykers

said the land exchange will allow

for the town to grow in the middle.

The district council is compensating

for the loss of land by

providing 30ha of land at Foster

Park.

A drop-in session is being

held tonight from 6pm at the

district council headquarters in

Rolleston.

The public consultation is open

until the end of the month.

LEST WE FORGET: Prebbleton area resident

Christopher Macann laid a wreath at the family plot in

Oxford in memory of his great uncle George Macann

from Ohoka, killed in the early stages of the Battle

of the Somme on July 16, 1916. George Macann,

who was 27 when he died, is buried in Armentieres,

France. He is remembered in a World War 1 memorial

there and at Oxford Cemetery along with his parents

who farmed at Bennett’s Junction. His photograph

(inset) is in the Ohoka War Memorial Hall. Christopher

Macann said a number of George Macann’s nieces

and nephews from several generations have visited

his grave at Bonjean Military Cemetery over the years.

“It’s a sad place, there are so many graves but its

pleasing to see that they are lovingly honoured and

maintained,” he said. “We’ve always done our best to

keep his memory alive. A niece still proudly wears his

medals at Anzac Day services.”

Aquatic centre in Rio spirit

THE SELWYN Aquatic Centre

is hosting games and activities to

celebrate the Olympic games and

is inviting the community to get

involved.

The Rio Olympics open in

August 6 in New Zealand and

Selwyn Aquatic Centre is bringing

the Olympics to Rolleston

with a series of challenges and

games.

Olympic-themed water games

like javelin noodle throw, aquatic

sprints and paddle boat relay

races will also be involved in the

day.

As part of the celebrations the

facility is also currently hosting

a Swim to Rio challenge, the aim

of it is to swim the 11,765km

distance from Lyttelton to Rio de

Janeiro by the time the Olympic

Games start next month, to raise

money for a new building for St

John in Rolleston.

The competition began in

February and the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre community has

completed 10,426km so far.

Aquatic facilities manager

Kathy Moore said: “This is an

opportunity to celebrate the

contribution everyone who has

been part of our Swim to Rio

challenge has made to helping

raise funds for a local facility for

St John while improving their fitness

at the same time.”

Swim to Rio Challenge participants

who have covered the longest

distance will be recognised

Our People

SELWYN TIMES

Climbers no fear approach

Springston resident

Shania Gibson, 18,

is raising money

to represent New

Zealand in climbing

at the World Youth

Championships in

China. She talked

to Siobhan Watson

about her love of

climbing and the

people helping her to

reach the top of her

sport

How long have you been

climbing for sport?

This will be my seventh year.

But competitively, this is my

fourth year.

How did you get into climbing

as a sport?

My friend at primary school

used to do it just for a bit of fun

and she asked me one time if I

wanted to go along and I obviously

said yes, because I was

really into sport and trying new

things. Yeah, so we just went for

a little bit of fun once a week and

she actually left to America to

live with her family, so I was left

INTENSE: Shania Gibson is watched by her coach Stephan

Brucher. She climbs both man-made (right) and natural climbing

walls.

PHOTOS: SHANIA GIBSON

on my own. But when I got to

high school, I pursued it because

there was a climbing club and it

just went from there.

How much money do you

need to raise to get over to the

competition? Have you reached

your goal yet?

So it’s roughly about five-grand

and I haven’t reached the goal

yet. The responses that I’ve had

so far are good, but I’ve had

to find other ways of funding

myself, which includes sausage

sizzles and working twice a week.

I’ve been trying to apply for

some sponsorship as well. I’ve

talked to some small companies

but it’s not an easy thing to do

with such a small sport.

How did you get chosen for

the championship?

So last year at the national

championship – which was held

in Rotorua – they had selectors

who were watching a lot of us

younger climbers. They were

looking at our general ability,

and not just physical, but how we

cope in stressful situations. And

in December last year, they chose

a youth development squad of 20

to 30 people, and then we had a

trial at the first national competition

of this year and they chose

the team from that. They based

the results on the first national

competition of this year, as well

as how you competed last year.

LAWyerS

What is it about climbing that

you like in particular?

I enjoy it because it’s not just a

physical challenge, it’s also mental.

So when your climbing, your

always presented with a puzzle

or a problem that you have to

work out. A lot of people would

describe it as dancing but your

on a wall. You have to really use

your body and your imagination

and come up with ways to solve

the problems. Sometimes it will

take me numerous tries, days or

even weeks to complete a problem,

but no matter how many

attempts it takes me, I always feel

a huge amount of satisfaction

once I’ve completed it. I enjoy

that part of it because when you

feel that kind of achievement,

you feel good about yourself.

Also, the thrill and the adrenalin

is really addictive, being up

that high and just knowing that

you’re pushing past gravity, and

knowing that there is always that

slight risk that something could

happen, but knowing that you’re

also in control. When I’m climbing,

I don’t think about anything

else, I switch off from the outside

world and I find it a good stress

relief from other things in my

life.

pushes her to the summit

It’s a good way to just focus on

myself and not think about other

things for a while.

Do you ever get halfway up a

cliff and suddenly get scared of

falling?

I haven’t done a huge amount

of outdoor climbing but even

just indoors when I’m climbing

on the roof, I can quite often fear

falling off which can put a barrier

on how well I climb, because

it’s quite a mental challenge. So

you have to put that behind you

and that’s what I’m trying to

learn at the moment in training

as well. Not just the physical

part, but mentally pushing

myself past my barriers and past

my limits and not being so afraid

of falling. Because it is an irrational

fear, the chances of anything

happening are pretty slim.

In terms of health and safety,

how does that work?

So we wear a harness and we

are tied into a rope, so obviously

you have to have a belayer [a

person who controls the safety

rope for a climber] and I’m quite

sceptical of who is belaying

because I really have to trust

them. I train with my coach and

I really trust him because he’s

a really good belayer. So when

ROCKY ROAD: Shania in the process of climbing a cliff face.

you’re climbing, they are feeding

out the rope and you clip it into

the quick draws on the wall as

you climb, and they are about a

metre apart. Once you get to one

of those points, you’re safe. Well,

you’re safe the whole way up but

that’s the next point to be aware

of. You need to clip in, because if

you go further and above,

you could potentially have a fatal

fall.

What’s the hardest climb that

you have done?

The hardest climb I’ve done is

a 26, which is the grade. Grade

13 is the easiest and I think grade

35 is the hardest someone has

done so far.

What other interests do you

have aside from climbing?

Well, I enjoy any form of

physical activity; sport has

always been my thing. I enjoy

cooking and learning about the

nutritional side of things and

relating it with my climbing,

because I know nutrition is such

a big thing with sport.

What will the championship

in China involve?

There is three disciplines in the

competition, so that’s speedclimbing,

lead-climbing and

bouldering. So I’ll be competing

in two of those, which is leadclimbing

and bouldering. For

lead-climbing, there’s qualifications,

semi-finals and then finals.

It is based over three days and

GOING FOR IT:

Scaling a wall in

a competitive

competition.

I’ll be in the junior under-20

category.

What do you have planned

for the future?

Next year I’m going to have a

gap year and further my education

after that.

Anything else you would like

to add?

Can you please give a special

thanks to my coach Stephan

Brucher, and Cirrus Tan who has

helped me a lot with my climbing

over the years. My school

climbing teacher George Elliot

and Uprising Boulder Gym for

helping me to get to China, the

Roxx Climbing Gym and everyone

else who’s been by my side

for the last four years.

North Canterbury seniors

beat Ellesmere seniors

39-14 on Saturday.

PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY

Saturday’s annual clashes with North

Canterbury were an emotional affair for

Ellesmere. The sub-union lost one of their

brightest talents last week, with the passing

of Utoikamanu Enosi Tuipulotu. Tuipulotu

had been in Christchurch Hospital battling

a rare form of cancer. The 19-year-old had

been having trouble with a racing heart while

at rugby training and went for a check up. It

was then when the doctor found a cancerous

growth on his heart. In 2014, Tuipulotu made

the New Zealand Barbarians Area Schools,

which played the Chiefs under-18 team.

He has also played for the Canterbury

Country and Ellesmere representative

teams, and was a Lincoln colt player this

year. Only a few months ago, most would

have expected Tuipulotu to have turned

out for the Ellesmere colts on Saturday.

Sadly, his involvement was resigned to a

minute’s silence held before the game in his

memory. Tries to Mark Maitland and Harry

Kirk weren’t enough for Ellesmere in the

annual Southbridge Shield match against

North Canterbury. The opposition ran in four

tries on their way to a 39-14 victory. The win

was a rare one for North Canterbury who had

won the shield just once in the past 10 years

going into the weekend. There was more

luck for the Ellesmere colts who had a close

fought 20-19 win. The Ellesmere under-18s

took out the MC Giffery Trophy with a 22-19

win. North Canterbury took out the under-16

Tiny Hill Shield 23-22.

TAKE HIM DOWN: Ellesmere’s Sam Kendall is tackled.

Brad Shaw’s third chance of gold

HOCKEY HERO: Canterbury Cavaliers captain Brad Shaw will

head to his third Olympic Games with the Black Sticks. He

believes the experiences of Beijing and London can work in his

team’s favour.

Sports reporter Gordon Findlater talks to Canterbury’s Brad Shaw

who hopes to claim a medal in his third Olympic Games with the

Black Sticks.

• By Gordon Findlater

BRAD SHAW is hoping its a

case of being third time lucky at

the Rio Olympics.

After what he describes as

inconsistent performances from

New Zealand squads in Beijing

and London, he’s hopeful the

Black Sticks have the right plan

going into this year’s games.

“At previous games, we’ve

played really well, but have

struggled to get results against

weaker opposition we should

be beating. In Beijing we could

only manage a draw with China,

and in London we lost our opening

game to Korea. We should

be beating them nine out of 10

times,” said Shaw.

Now an experienced Olympian,

he is also aware of the foreign

environment players must

be prepared for. He described

his first experience in Beijing as

eye opening, even to the point of

seeking a sports psychologist a

week into the event.

“It’s not something you get

used to, you just have to be

prepared. The media hype and

Olympic village are huge.”

Shaw claimed his spot in

New Zealand hockey folk-law

in 2008, when New Zealand

faced Argentina in an Olympic

qualifier. The match went into

sudden-death extra time. Shaw

grabbed the match-winning

goal for the Black Sticks, booking

their spot in the Beijing

Olympics.

“I haven’t scored too many

goals in my career, but seem to

have a knack for scoring memorable

ones.”

The defender comes from

a proud hockey family. Older

brother Hayden Shaw represented

the Black Sticks at the

2004 and 2008 Olympics and

was known as the drag-flick shot

expect during his career.

Brad Shaw began playing

hockey at age four, playing in

the local park. He played his first

competitive hockey for club-side

Selwyn, which his father also

played for. Shaw still plays for

the club now known as Southern

following the amalgamation

of the Selwyn and Sydenham.

While at Shirley Boys’ High,

he helped the school during a

successful period for its hockey

team. He playing alongside the

likes of former New Zealand

international cricketer Michael

Papps, who he described as a

handy mid-fielder.

Canterbury’s provincial men’s

team didn’t acquire the services

of Shaw until 2004. Prior to

that, he travelled north to play

for Midlands, due to what he

described as a different view in

playing styles to the Canterbury

set-up at the time.

Former Black Sticks assistant

coach Andrew Hastie was

Shaw’s first Canterbury men’s

coach and was impressed with

the player he had seen come

through various age group

teams.

“He was a really strong player.

Uncompromising. He’s one of

those guy’s that always plays

with his heart. He wears it on

his sleeve and he just goes for it,”

said Hastie.

Shaw has since become Canterbury

captain, a role Hastie

believes the 33-year-old thrives

in.

“He’s our go-to player, always

gives 100 percent. He plays the

game in the right spirit and

gives everything on the field.”

The 2004 Champions Trophy

was Shaw’s first international

tournament, making his debut

against Pakistan. Hardly given

the ideal start to his international

career, he first took to the field

for 30 seconds while a teammate

addressed a broken shoe lace.

the Olympics, let’s hope he has

a new piece of memorabilia to

student Daniella Judge

writes about the school’s

first nationally televised

rugby match, which

will double as a charity

fundraiser

AT NOON on Saturday Lincoln

High School will be holding a

‘Sport and Doing Good Day’

where a number of our sports

teams will be playing on the

Lincoln High School grounds.

This also includes a few

games involving local primary

schools. This will all lead up to

the UC Championship rugby

game.

The UC Championship is the

premier school boys’ rugby competition

in the Crusaders region.

Lincoln High School has entered

its first XV in this competition

since 2006.

At 2.45pm the first XV will be

against Ashburton and the game

will be televised nationally on

Sky TV (on Land Rover 1 st XV

rugby on the Rugby Channel).

This is the first time that a Lincoln

High School team has been

televised nationally.

The majority of the profits

from this event will go to the

Ronald McDonald House and

contribute to the 2016 Lincoln

High School council’s Doing

Good Campaign.

Within this campaign, we hope

to raise $20,000 over the course

of the year for charities and

organisations of our choosing.

The campaign is based on one of

the Lincoln High School values –

doing good for others.

The campaign has got off to a

great start with us raising more

than $2000 for the Heart Foundation

and $2000 for the Mental

Health Foundation of New Zealand

(through Pink Shirt Day).

Students have also been volunteering

for multiple organisations

including Camp Quality, The

Delta Community Trust Friendship

Group and the Selwyn Lions

Club. We would like to raise as

much money as we can for Ronald

McDonald House.

We encourage all who can to

come along. There will be a variety

of food stalls, games for the

kids to play, music, raffles to be

won and sports games to watch.

Our Sport and Doing Good

Day is a great opportunity for

Selwyn as a community to come

together to support the local

players and do some good.

Inmates help feed the homeless

INMATES FROM Christchurch

Men’s Prison have grown more

than 2300kg of vegetables and

herbs, as well as 3400 seedlings,

for a very worthy cause.

Over the past 10 months, men

from Tirohanga Paeroa Unit

have built vegetable gardens, and

grown and contributed vegetables

and seedlings to those in

need. The programme has been

undertaken with assistance from

charity group, Help for the

Homeless.

Prison residential manager

Graeme Hunter said the men

wanted to keep busy and do

something that would make a

difference for people in need in

the community.

“The new gardens seemed the

perfect way to do something

useful with the land around the

unit, engage the men in a helpful

CORRECTIONS AND kaupapa

Maori health provider Purapura

Purapura Whetu will provide

a wraparound service for

Maori youth offenders and their

whanau, aiming to connect them

lifestyle and, potentially, employable

skills,” he said.

Those who work in the garden

gain credits towards a National

Certificate in Horticulture qualification.

The initiative has already

proved a success for one prisoner.

In his mid-40s, he has a

background in crop farming and

market gardens.

He has been involved in the

project from the start and has

taken on a leadership role in the

to their culture and traditions.

Maori offenders make up 43.7

per cent of people on community

sentences in the country.

This is the first time Canterbury

Corrections has partnered with a

health provider specifically to provide

targeted services for at-risk

Maori youth offenders.

Corrections Canterbury district

manager Lisa Joseph said:

“We are working together to

intervene and steer this group of

youth toward better health outcomes

and crime-free futures.”

Purapura Whetu chief executive

Karaitiana Tickell said its

goal was to empower tangata

whaiora (people seeking wellness).

GARDEN TIME:

Prisoners from

the Tirohanga

Paeroa Unit

have built

vegetable

gardens to

grow food to

help feed the

homeless. ​

“I mentor others through the

practical aspects of the course

– weeding, turning soil over,

planting seedlings into seed

trays. Some of the men have a

limited knowledge of gardening,

but there is a correct way to do

these things, to grow the best

“By connecting Maori youth

to their culture, traditions and

values of our tupuna (ancestors),

we are helping them to better

understand and take ownership

of their mental, physical and spiritual

health,” she said.

It would also connect youth

offenders to health support, education,

employment, housing and

produce,” he said.

Help for the Homeless was

founded in 2014 by Amy Burke,

of New Brighton, who saw

homeless people hungry, cold, or

going through rubbish bins in

Christchurch.

“Produce from the prison

gardens is delivered to [Help for

the Homeless] cooks who create

dishes for our locals,” Ms Burke.

“We also provide support to

the recently housed, including

youth and any family going

through hardship. This filters to

schools and community organisations,

depending on surplus.”

The 3400 seedlings, grown as

part of the NZQA horticulture

course, were given to the charity

for their ‘recently housed’ homeless.

This will enable them to learn

to live off the land, too.

Ms Joseph said: “It makes sense

in terms of both our services to

take the opportunity – while

these youth are on sentence – to

connect them with good health

practices and to also look at addressing

some of the lifestyle and

health issues which may impact

their offending.”

A busy year

on our roads

Vehicles travel over 300 million kilometres a year on our local roads – an 80% increase since 2001.

To maintain Selwyn’s roads in good condition over the past year contractors have been busy:

· Resealing 84km of roads

· Completing work to remove high roadside edges on 140kms of rural roads to allow water to

drain off the surface of the road. Water pooling on the road surface combined with heavy traffic

contributes to potholes forming and edge damage. Contractors also cleaned 2,284km of kerb

and channel along roadsides to improve road drainage

· Repairing 5,668 potholes, completing road edge repairs along 47km of roads and dig out repairs

on 38,456m 2 of road surface

· Grading 9,947km of unsealed roads and placing gravel on unsealed roads

· Creating a 2.6km cycleway from Coalgate to Glentunnel and 530 metres of new footpath

· 35km of new roads and 30km of new footpaths were vested with the Council by developers from

new subdivisions. The ownership of these has now transferred to the Council and we will take

over future maintenance.

Work to create a new roundabout at the intersection of Springston Rolleston Road and

Broadlands Drive and extend Broadlands Drive to this point was also completed.

Extra funding approved in last year’s Annual Plan allowed the Council to complete road

rehabilitation work on 5.3km of road on sections of Leeston and Lake Road, Deans Road,

Rockwood Road, Goulds Road, Springs Road and Marshs Road. Road rehabilitation is required

when the road has suffered significant damage and the road base needs to be reconstructed, the

surface levelled and resealed.

Over the next year, we will continue our road maintenance and repair programme but will also

develop around 6km of new footpaths in a number of areas linking existing footpaths together.

and 7.30-8.30pm.

Avoid smoke nuisance from fires

The Council would like to remind anyone lighting a fire outdoor in a rural area that you need to ensure

smoke does not create a danger to motorists by drifting across roads. There are also a number of other

fire safety conditions which must be met – for advice see www.selwyn.govt.nz/fire. Outdoor fires are not

allowed in residential areas in Canterbury under Environment Canterbury rules, except for barbeques, and

are only allowed in hill and high country areas if a fire permit has been granted by the Council.

Any vegetation being burnt should be dry to reduce the smoke created by the fire.

Lincoln plans move forward

The creation of a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly town centre in Lincoln

has taken a step forward with the Council acquiring land for off-street

car parking. The Council has purchased a site at 16 William Street,

near the intersection with Gerald Street, which will eventually be

developed to provide free car parking for around 40 vehicles. The

development is one of a number of changes proposed under the

Lincoln Town Centre Plan to create a safer, more pedestrian and

cyclist-friendly town centre. The plan was recently adopted after

extensive consultation with the Lincoln community.

The vision for the new town centre includes wider footpaths,

landscaping, new tree planting, public spaces and additional seating

on Gerald Street, as well as the undergrounding of power lines, to

create an attractive environment where people will be able to shop,

walk, gather and relax. 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.

During consultation on the plan, the community identified the

development of new separated cycleways along Gerald Street as

their top priority. To create safe cycleways, some car parks will

be relocated from Gerald Street to new areas in the town centre,

including the William Street site. Existing angle parks outside shops

in the town centre will remain. The Council also plans to reconfigure

mostly unmarked on-street parking spaces in the town centre to

provide additional parking, including spaces on Lyttelton Street,

Maurice Street and West Belt (north and south), which connect

to Gerald Street. The Council has also recently developed a new

60-space car park at Lincoln Library. Work on cycleways, footpaths,

landscaping, street changes and car parking in the Gerald Street area

will occur over the next four years.

problem and these are gritted to improve traction when frosty. If

you need to report a frost affected area that needs gritting you can

do so by phoning 347 2800 or 318 8338.

In frosty conditions please reduce your speed. Ice can also be a

problem during the day on patches of road shaded by trees or

fences, so look out for this and slow down before entering these

areas. You should also avoid braking suddenly on ice, carry chains

and know how to fit them and use them when necessary.

Fashion

Model search finalists announced

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PORTFOLIO MODEL Agency has

announced its nine finalists for the

Portfolio Model Search 2016.

The competition through

Facebook and Instagram was an

opportunity for aspiring models,

aged between 14-21, to be scouted

by the agency.

The finalists are Elysha De

Rybel, Eva Calje-Van Der Klei,

Leanna Elliott, Charlotte Sullivan,

Michaelee-Jayne McDonald,

Sophie Richards, Shannon

Middlemiss, Holly Mccann and

Paris Thorman.

Each contestant was required

to send in a photo of themselves

which were judged by agency

director Mel Radford Brown and

the agency’s model booker Rebecca

Dore.

The winner of the competition

will be announced next Tuesday

after the agency has met each

contestant in person.

Portfolio is an established

agency in the city that provides

a professional representation of

models and actors for both the

local and international stage.

The winner of the competition

will receive a portfolio teenage

workshop valued at $299 and a

Clemency Alice Facialist “modern

facial” valued at $105.

The winner will also receive

Eva Calje-Van Der Klei

one free dress hire from clothing

companies maryoutram.com and

Borrowed By Mary as well as an

opportunity to appear in the next

Kristen Stewart School of Make-Up

photo shoot.

Agency director Mel Radford-

Brown said the reason the

competition is run is because

Christchurch is a “fantastic

scouting ground”.

“Beauty is very unique and that is

why we want to meet each girl we

want them to have the confidence

as well to go with their look”.

Mrs Radford-Brown said due to

the standard competition being so

high they may offer a second and

third prize.

“I am looking at about four of

them who will sign. We will be

offering contracts for sure.”

Bishop Brothers head

chef – Kathryn Ahu.

• By Gabrielle Stuart

KATHRYN AHU was

head chef running her own

kitchen before she had

even finished studying.

She was 19 and working

at a hotel in Hamilton,

when the head chef and

sous chef both stood down

at once.

“The owner asked me if I

wanted to step up as head

chef. I said, well, let me

just go home and talk to

my parents.”

After two years running

the kitchen she took a

step back to accept a sous

chef job at the Hamilton

Belgian Beer Cafe.

But within a year and

a half she was head chef

there, this time running

two restaurants.

Moving to the top so

fast meant she had to learn

quickly, but she said it also

kept her humble.

“I scrub my own rangehood

and sweep and mop

the floor, so I would never

ask my staff to do something

I wouldn’t do myself.

I think we’re all a team.”

About 12 years ago, she

moved to Christchurch,

“following a man”.

Although the relationship

didn’t work out, she

said she fell in love with

Canterbury.

Taking a job at the

Christchurch Gondola

Pinnacle Restaurant

helped, as she said the

views were absolutely

beautiful – although nature

could also be a problem

there.

“Sometimes you’d get

a call saying you have to

get down in 10 minutes or

you’ll be stuck, because the

wind’s picking up. Once

we did get stranded and

had to walk down. But the

views were gorgeous.”

ON THE JOB: Former Cafe Izone head chef Kathryn

Ahu has taken on a new role at the Bishop Brothers

Public House.

The challenges in her

next role at Cafe Izone in

Rolleston were quite different

– attracting people to

an industrial area, creating

a family-friendly menu

and mastering stonegrill.

But it won Best New

Restaurant in the first year

open, and she said it grew

in popularity from there.

After the earthquakes,

she said

She started in March at

the newly opened Bishop

Brothers Public House, at

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

the former Farrington’s

Tavern site.

She said the owners

wanted to “step it up a

little, restaurant style”,

while keeping the suburban,

homely flavour and

reasonable prices.

It was a challenge she

was up for.

She said it was her love

for food that drove her,

and her enjoyment of experimenting

with different

flavours and ingredients,

both at work and at home.


SELWYN TIMES Tuesday July 19 2016 25

at work or home

“A lot of people say no,

I don’t cook at home, but

I say if you have a passion

for cooking why wouldn’t

you?”

With a partner who

worked as a personal

trainer and was ex-army,

she said a lot of the meals

she cooked after work

were big and hearty,

with steaks often on the

menu.

She enjoyed being part

of rebuilding the hospitality

scene in Christchurch,

but said it was still sad to

see how much had been

lost.

“You can always open

another Mexican restaurant

or Italian restaurant,

but knowing people who

have lost everything is the

sad thing.”

She said the way people

dined out in Christchurch

had changed.

“I suppose it’s a

comfort, when you can

go out and have a really

lovely time and enjoy

your meal. I think we’re

enjoying life a bit more,

because it was a huge

shock to the system that

in a matter of minutes

something can be taken

from you so fast.”

Gardening

SELWYN TIMES

Plant a rare tree in your garden

Rachel Vogan talks you through what to be

doing in the garden now

‘Camelot’.

Have you ever wanted to grow your

own Jurassic pine tree?

Wollemi pines are on show in

Nichol’s garden centres (Cromwell,

Dunedin and Invercargill) and

Terra Viva (Christchurch), all raised

carefully by Gardening Solutionz in

Christchurch, the sole supplier in

New Zealand.

The tree was thought to be

extinct until a pocket of plants were

discovered by a conservationist David

Noble in 1994.

He was abseiling in a remote ravine

in a piece of bush in New South

Wales, when he spotted a tree he

couldn’t identify.

And what unfolded was the

discovery of a tree thought lost, for

hundreds of years.

This rare plant is happy in most

spots in the garden and is adaptable

to life in a large tub or pot; it would

make the perfect Christmas tree and

the ultimate gift for the gardener who

has everything.

These special plants don’t come

along every day, so treat yourself or

your garden with a piece of botanical

history.

STRAWBERRIES

Did you know the coldest months of the year

are when strawberry plants are initiating

fruiting buds for the upcoming season? The

cold temperatures trigger the development

of the fruit buds. This is one of the main

reasons strawberries are planted over winter,

to maximise the fruiting capacity. For existing

strawberry beds, remove any runners and

pluck off all dead-looking leaves, replenish the

soil with strawberry food and tuck new layers

of straw around each plant to keep the soil

weed-free and the fruit clean.

IN FLOWER NOW:

WINTER ROSES

Hellebores are strutting their stuff for

the next few months. These winter

wonders are happy nestled under trees,

in pots and tubs; anywhere really, as

long as they have a little protection

from intense sun in summer. A new

one to look out for is ‘Camelot’, with its

large, pearly white, flat blooms with just

a hint of green. Great for a spot in need

of extra winter interest and summer

foliage. Wintersweet is just bursting

with punchy perfume now, too. Even

the smallest of sprigs picked and put in

a small vase indoors with permeate the

room.

‘Congratulations’.

CAMELLIAS

Cloaking themselves in blooms for the

next few months, camellias are looking

good. After flowering is the best time

to prune them, trimming them to

shape. New stems will appear within

a few months. A side-dressing of acid

plant food will help promote more

flowers, too. Apply this in spring when

the soil begins to warm up.

Camellias are happy in pots and

tubs, too. Ideally they prefer a home

away from intense midday sun. Once

planted they will last about three to

five years before they need re-potting

into fresh soil.

WINTER HANGING

BASKETS

Baskets are not just for summer, they

are great value all year round. Always

freshen up the potting mix before

planting anything new. This time of

the year the small flowering violas

make a brilliant show. Team them

up with fairy primulas or herbs, like

parsley, for something different. And

place the basket somewhere it can be

viewed from both inside and outside.

If you have any bulbs left over, tuck

them up into the roots of the bedding

plants and, in a few months, they

will add the final hurrah of flowers in

spring.

VEGETABLES

Broad beans are cool customers that thrive in the

winter months. It’s a little too late to sow seed

now, but fat seedlings are in the shops. Plant in a

spot away from strong winds, or if you have large

planters or containers, jam heaps in so you can

be feasting on them for Christmas. Harvest yams

now the frosts have sweetened up the flavour.

Once dug up, wash off any soil and allow them to

dry before storing somewhere dry and dark. Keep

a few of the fattest ones for planting out in spring

for next year’s crop. The same goes for Jerusalem

artichokes. Now the stalks have died down, lift

them and store in the same way as yams.

JULY in the Garden

July is still a good month to get out and complete some of those gardening

tasks. Even with the chilly starts, the days often turn out to be sunny and a

good temperature for getting stuck in to your garden. Here are a few tasks

that can done now:

Planting

• Strawberries can still be planted now.

Use our Patio Plus for planting in pots,

tubs, barrels and other containers.

• There is still time to get garlic and

shallots in. Fresh garlic is delicious

added into your cooking,

and it is pretty simple to

grow.

• Plant veggie seedlings

like broccoli,

cauliflower, radish,

silverbeet, peas and

spinach.

Fertilising

• Those spring bulbs will

be starting to pop

through now. Give them a boost of nutrition

in the form of Intelligro Topdressing Fertiliser. This will help them to continue develop,

ready to burst into bloom in Spring.

• If you are planning to plant seed potatoes, give the area you are planting in a boost by

adding in Intelligro Potato Fertiliser before planting.

General Tasks

• Prune your roses! Best done on a dry, sunny day. If you have any questions about

pruning your roses, send them to us at info@igro.co.nz and we will get back to you as

soon as we can.

• Protect your plants from frosts. Add Organic Compost to gardens and layer with one of

our barks. This will help keep the plant’s roots protected from the cold. Cover veggie

beds with a frost cloth, and where possible, move pots indoors if a big frost is forecast.

• Tidy up leaves from paths and in gutters.

strawberries and garlic, as well as other handy gardening guides.

SELWYN HOME PROFESSIONALS

SELWYN TIMES

Artistic Decorating

craft enthusiasts and others wanting to make a piece of art or accessory,

may be interested in the new trend of decoupage.

TradiTionally, decoupage was

cutting out and gluing layers of paper onto

an object like a box before varnishing over

to seal the image.

card making uses decoupage, however

it is not just about cards. it can be used

to enhance bags, boxes, runners, wall

hangings or even school bags and bicycles.

For example, a tote or nappy bag might be

made out of calico then decorated using

decoupage.

decoupage can be applied to hard and

soft surfaces where fabrics might be used

along with painting of images, to achieve

unique and original art to be displayed,

used or worn. it can be applied to walls,

tables, chairs, stones, fabrics, canvases, tote

bags, throws or rugs.

Those interested in discovering more

about decoupage will want to pop into

classic curtains where Maxine has just

received a shipment of decoupage products.

“i love fabrics and enjoy creating

accessories such as bags and cushions so i’m

really excited about what can be done with

these decoupage products,” says Maxine.

“Many locals come into purchase fabrics for

craftwork so when i learnt that decoupage

was becoming really popular overseas i

wanted to bring this craft into my store.

no other outlets locally, offer decoupage

products.”

“you can change the look in part of a

ORGANISING

THE WORKSHOP

Workshops, garages and man caves come in all shapes and sizes as does the

order of what is inside.

More oFTen the domain of a man, the

state of these spaces varies considerably.

Some are extremely organised with tools

neatly hanging over painted outlines while

others may be a complete jumble.

Having a semblance of organisation in

the garage or workshop is advantageous

and winter is a good time to sort it out.

Be brave. dispose of items that no

longer have a use while recycling others.

duplicate and unwanted possessions

might be passed onto friends, family, the

recycling centre or an op shop, or put to

another use. For example, old tools might

become part of a fence, gate, wall art or

a path while an old rug could be thrown

over compost to keep the heat in.

Storing tools and other belongings

appropriately, will help preserve their

life and condition while easier to find if

put back each time. They also need to be

stored out of the reach of children as they

could hurt themselves, or might decide to

carry out some unwanted carpentry on the

house.

When choosing storage places, consider

how each item is used, along with its

weight, toxicity and potential to be broken

or damaged. Heavy items are better down

low while toxic chemicals and weapons

should be locked away, especially if

children live in or visit the home.

cupboards and built-in shelving,

whether recycled or new, are handy

storage facilities. These might be salvaged

from a kitchen or bathroom that is being

renovated, or purpose built for the job.

Kitset and readymade shelving and

cupboards can also be purchased from

hardware stores.

Metal or wire shelving, trolleys and

hooks for hanging brooms and garden

implements, are also handy. other items,

like camp chairs and bikes, might be hung

on a wall or from the ceiling with hooks

or mounted racks. overhead suspended

shelving can also be fixed to the ceiling to

house lighter items like the christmas tree

and chilly bins.

if fitting shelving, measure the height

and width of objects to be put away so

space is efficiently utilised. Fix the shelving

and any lightweight cabinetry to the wall

to stop it from falling when bumped or if

there is an earthquake.

plastic bins, wooden boxes, tins, baskets

and cardboard boxes will also be handy so

before tossing something out, think about

the garage and how the container might be

recycled, labelling each so items are easy

to find.

lastly, allocate a space for a

notebook and pen for recording vehicle

maintenance, repairs or restoration

progress, and for filing workshop manuals

and power tool warranties.

a little organisation will create more

space and make it easier to find things.

Bikes can be hung from the ceiling or wall

Tools will be easier to find in an organised workshop

SELWYN HOME PROFESSIONALS

A ONE-STOP SHOP FOR

HOME RENOVATIONS

SELWYN TIMES

adding on an extension or renovating

is a great way to revitalise a house

especially where its footprint is no longer

practical for the family’s needs. This

may also be more affordable and less

inconvenient than selling up and shifting,

especially if the location is one the family

enjoys.

KTM Builders limited is a specialist

home improvement building company.

owner Keith Moore, has years of

experience in bringing new life into a

house making him the ideal person to

talk to when looking to renovate. He

can suggest ideas on how the most can

be made of floor space, where to extend

and how an outdoor area could be better

utilised.

Whether it is removing a wall, adding

on a new kitchen, enlarging the living

room, or upgrading a bathroom or

kitchen, Keith has done it all. Some call

him the bathroom expert as Keith has

remodelled so many little rooms, as

well as a good number of kitchens. He

can suggest ways to make a room more

workable or expand the family living area

and will provide accurate measurements

for a kitchen designer to work with, while

directing clients to affordable kitchen

manufacturers.

if wanting to rejuvenate or take more

advantage of the outdoor living space then

Keith can construct decks, pergolas and

walls that will add character and create

shade and shelter from the sun and wind.

KTM Builders limited is a one-stop

shop. They will complete much of the

job themselves from the carpentry work

through to the plastering, painting and

even fitting showers and laying tiles. This

leads to a speedier outcome as there is

less waiting around for sub-contractors

to arrive, which can slow down the job.

KTM Builders also work closely with their

own electrical and plumbing contractors

assuring a timely finish with no delays.

Keith will take care of the whole project

from start to finish, or work with others

who might manage the project. He is a

licensed building practitioner with over

fifteen years’ experience working on

residential building work, and is Site Safe

trained and registered.

over the years, Keith has also trained

four young people who live in Selwyn,

taking them through their apprenticeships

to become fully qualified carpenters; the

most recent being his son Jayden.

along with wife Trish, Keith is

passionate about their local community

reflected in their involvement and

sponsorship of the Southbridge under-Seven’s rugby team.

With spring approaching, now is a good time to think about any renovations you have

planned, especially if you would like them completed by christmas and the summer

holidays.

Whether looking to begin a building project or just wanting ideas, Keith is only too

happy to have a chat. He can be contacted on: 03 325 4452 or 027 274 9359, or by email:

LOOKING AFTER

THE COMMUNITY’S

OUTDOORS

THree local businesses have

deservedly been nominated for the 2016

Sensational Selwyn awards, a bi-annual

event held by the Selwyn district council

to recognise the work and achievements

of local businesses.

The outdoor Space is one of three

businesses

nominated for the

community

project award.

aaron and

Vicky Bartlett

from The

outdoor Space,

joined up with

alan and aileen

peacock from

iSl (independent

Signs ltd)

in rolleston,

and lincoln

envirotown Trust for a fruit trees in

schools initiative.

alan and aileen peacock came up

with the idea of planting fruit trees on

school grounds in the Selwyn district,

after watching a television programme

that concluded that there was insufficient

fruit in children’s lunch boxes.

With the support of other local

business people who donated funds to

pay for the trees, the three businesses

instigated a planting programme at the

district’s primary schools where each

school would receive ten fruit trees per

year.

So far, approximately twenty primary

schools in the district have had fruit trees

planted on their

grounds.

“The first crop

was planted in

2015,” explains

Vicky who says

that some schools

made it a grand

affair while others

incorporated the

planting into their

teaching with the

children drawing

up a planting plan

and helping with

the planting.”

Vicky is enthusiastic about the

benefits for the children who learn new

skills and that food does not just come

from the supermarket, with the best

benefit being that once fruiting, the

students get to see and eat the fruit.

The outdoor Space team have also

been busy landscaping and aaron

emphasises the importance of booking

early so work will be completed for the

growing season.

as specialists in both hard and soft

landscaping they can assist with: walls,

stonework, decks, paving, fencing,

pergolas, water features, outdoor fires,

irrigation systems, lawns, and planting

out.

if you have some quirky recyclables,

old bricks, pallets, wooden windows,

or a bike that granny used to ride then

why not consider incorporating these

into your landscaping. old taps can

be turned into a water feature and old

tools welded together for a gate or set

into concrete. it might also save a little

on the budget.

“you dream it up, and we’ll do our

best,” say aaron who loves being

innovative and is always happy to offer

landscaping advice and provide a free

quote. He can be contacted on 021 542

402.

There are also landscaping examples

on their website: http://www.

theoutdoorspace.co.nz/ and they are

currently working on an ideas centre at

their rolleston base so clients can view

landscaping materials and how they

blend together, without having to take a

trip into town.

Watch out too for their two

new trucks. email the number

plates of both vehicles to:

landscapeyouroutdoorspace@gmail.

com by Friday, 19 th august this year and

they will put you in the draw for one of

five $20 Southern Woods vouchers.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Christchurch School of Music

the ChriStChurCh School of Music

is a family-oriented community aimed

at providing quality music education in

and around Christchurch. in 2015 CSM

celebrated 60 years of teaching children to

love and appreciate music so why not join

us and become a part of the next 60 years?

CSM is a not-for-profit organisation

with a strong focus on community. On

a Saturday morning the whole family

can find something to suit. Preschool

children can start their musical journey by

joining in our experiential “take Orff with

Music” while older children and adults

may opt for group or individual lessons

on a specific instrument (including voice).

Those who already play are welcome to

join in one of the great ensembles which

all take part in regular concerts including

Saturday soirees and the popular annual

Showcase Concert. Recitals where

individuals can perform are also held

regularly.

CSM also provides a comprehensive

music education to participating primary

schools via its Outreach programmes.

With programmes offered in band, strings,

recorder and ukulele in a wide range of

Christchurch schools this is an area of the

School, which has grown fast over the last

few years.

Another area that has grown rapidly

over the last few years is the Late Starters

programme where adults approaching

retirement with more time on their hands

have really enjoyed learning an instrument

they never had the chance to play in their

early years and join an ensemble with

other like-minded adults.

if Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also

offers a range of weekday opportunities for

learning and playing music.

if affordability is an issue, CSM may be

able to offer a discount through funding

provided by the rata Foundation.

Please contact us via our website www.

csm.org.nz and let us start you on a

musical journey that will bring pleasure

for a lifetime.

Ensuring a safe work place

LeArninG FirSt aid is not only a part

of ensuring a safe work place, but also

an integral part of our engagement with

the wider community. We all learn the

necessary skills to ensure that in times of

emergency we are able to assist our work

colleagues, but are we able to take these

skills home, into the community or on to the

sports field?

not all work places are the same and

the injury risk for each place can be wide

and variable. The office attended by

administrators does not carry the same

risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from

a regular ambulance service. it is therefore

essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both

professional

and social.

take, for example, an office worker who

does not have a high risk work environment

and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial

injuries, or the ability to perform effective

CPr. These skills can be achieved on a

course of eight hours duration and would

generally fit into low to medium risk area.

But take this same person on to a sports field

either as a spectator or player when a higher

level injury occurs. The eight hour course

covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or

26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck

and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia

and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of

the work place, in fact one in three injuries

occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen.

new Zealand children are twice as likely

to die through injury as children who live

in Australia. They mostly die as a result of

motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home.

Fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the

additional unit standard 6400 and provides

a wide knowledge base for medium to high

risk environments. This course covers many

of the skills required to deal with the most

common injuries, such as falls (which can

result in head neck and spinal injuries) and

dealing with complex scenes such as motor

vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best

suited to your needs, ask your accredited

first aid training provider. They can explain

the course content and give you options that

will best suit your needs. Look beyond the

workplace and consider your family and

your location. Check that you have a good

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

replenished items, and that everyone knows

where it is located.

SELWYN TIMES

Ford Focus ST a worthy compromise

• By Ross Kiddie

I’VE LONG desired a 70s

two-door Ford Escort, it’s a

car I thought would be a good

retirement project,

but I’m a victim of skyrocketing

classic car prices and decreased

availability.

The latter could be true of other

fast Ford fans, New Zealand’s

quota of the recently-released

Focus RS has been exhausted, the

257kW, four-wheel-drive model is

hot property and, by all accounts,

deservedly so, as it is a true performance

machine.

However, Ford has another

hot Focus, it is the ST and would

suffice for those who want good

performance at a price that is

considerably more favourable than

that of the RS.

At $52,840 the Focus ST is

affordable, and although its performance

isn’t as great as the RS, it

equips itself well with 184kW, and

360Nm providing the power for a

6.6sec standstill to 100km/h time.

Power is directed through a sixspeed

manual transmission and is

a front-wheel-drive model only,

and while it certainly fits into the

hot hatchback category, it has

four-doors offering the practicality

the Focus has as a series.

The ST gets a turbocharged,

twin-camshaft engine which gets

about its job with strong engine

sound and character. I’m not saying

it is noisy, it’s not, the sound

is well isolated but it is there to be

heard, the engine is angry under

load and it is a sound that encourages

throttle use, it is pleasant to

listen to.

The Focus ST is quick through

a corner, grippy tyres (Good Year

Eagle F1, 225/40 x 18in) turn in

precisely with little steering effort.

If more lock is required you can

rely on the tyres to bite and maintain

direction.

Sitting low, the Focus doesn’t

move around on the suspension,

therefore gravitational changes

don’t load the tyres, nor does it

affect the way the suspension

operates in a corner; if uneven

surfaces are encountered there is

composure and certainty within

the steering process.

I took the test car on a Summit

Rd loop, they are perfect roads for

a performance car. English Fords

have generally been regarded as

having supple chassis balance and

the ST doesn’t disappoint. It also

rockets between corners with a

powerful surge and swift retardation

thanks to a performance

brake package, through the corners

it has balance and accuracy

akin to a true sports hatchback.

There is a bit of torque steer

under load, it’s not dramatic but

it is there to remind there is a lot

of power heading out the front

FORD FOCUS ST: High power engine.

end. It doesn’t bother me, I like to

be reminded there is something

special under the bonnet and the

high power flows are there to

entice the driver, everything about

the Focus ST is structured for performance.

The hatchback also embodies

the spirit of Ford’s Focus, the ST

is still the handy five-seater which

pleases in the everyday role as

well, but any prospective buyer

should be prepared to be noticed.

The ST stands out with its bold

wheels, body kit and spoiler, while

on the inside Recaro seats not

only support the driver around the

mid-riff, but they are visual. The

test car was painted bright yellow,

well, Ford call it tangerine, and

the inside detailing incorporated

splashes of yellow as well.

The Focus ST is a fun package

and it comes extensively equipped

with all of the items you’d expect

today for comfort and convenience,

and safety.

Ford claim a 6.7l/100km

(42mpg) combined cycle

fuel usage average for the ST.

Obviously, I didn’t push as hard as

I could have done because the trip

computer was showing around

8l/100km (35mpg), when I took

the car back to the dealership.

It will also return a 5.6l/100kmn

(50mpg) instantaneous reading at

100km/h (engine speed 2200rpm),

• Price – Ford Focus ST,

$52,840

• Dimensions – Length,

4362mm; width, 1823mm;

height, 1471mm

• Configuration: Fourcylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

2000cc, 184kW, 360Nm,

six-speed manual.

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

6.2sec

• Fuel usage– 6.7l/100km

which means you can have some

fun without scoffing vast amounts

of fuel.

I’ve long appreciated Ford’s

sporty cars which aren’t out of

reach for buyers who want a little

bit of performance with their

purchase. I also relate well to

the Volvo-powered five-cylinder

Focus Turbo which, for a long

period, was one of my favourite

fast Fords.

Sadly, Ford don’t use that engine

any more, however, that aside, the

Ecoboost series that makes up a

large part of the Ford power plants

today is widely recognised for its

efficiency and performance.

I guess I’ll always mourn parting

with my old Escort Sport and

envy those who I know have one

parked in their garage today. My

retirement projects will probably

lend themselves to something far

more mundane – like painting the

house, for instance.

lincoln continues

to grow

[Edition datE] 1

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

One of the earlier entrants to the recent growth of Lincoln

was the Liffey Springs subdivision.

First launched in 2012, Liffey Springs is

sited on fertile rich land on the Tai Tapu

side of Lincoln; named after the natural

springs that are the headwaters of the L2

River.

“There are two natural streams in

Liffey Springs, one on the east of the

development and the other bounding

the west side. One is called the Liffey, the

other the LII as it was originally named,”

advises developer, Mike Hobbs.

While these natural waterways have

narrowed over time they provide an

attractive feature in the subdivision and

are also a habitat for eels, trout and koura

(fresh water crayfish).

A total of 222 sections were created at

Liffey Springs and some have a view of the

port hills and surrounding countryside.

Six hectares of reserves, walkways and

wide streets add to the attractiveness of the

subdivision making it a desirable place to

live and explaining its popularity.

According to Mike Hobbs, most

purchasers have been people who already

live in Lincoln or wanted to live there,

rather than investors.

Sections have ranged from 550 to 1500

square metres in size and the larger areas

of land sold very quickly. The smaller

sections which are 550 to 850 square

metres in size, have sold steadily over the

four years and there are now only thirty

remaining to be sold to complete the

project.

This reflects the continual process that

has seen Lincoln expand over the last

twenty years. People are attracted to the

town due to its village feel, relaxed lifestyle

and opportunities for work and study at

Lincoln University, or one of the research

institutions, where there are more than

1,000 paid positions.

“A strong thread of international visitors,

come to Lincoln for work and study. Many

like the township and decide to settle there

and this strong diverse community gives

the town a multi-cultural atmosphere,”

suggests Mike.

Add to the mix, the larger lifestyle blocks

in the surrounding landscape with market

values of about a million dollars, and the

area is an appealing place to live and invest

in.

Lincoln also offers easy access to

Christchurch via Shands, Springs, Birches

and Ellesmere roads with no bottlenecks

like there are to the north of the city, at the

Waimakariri River bridge and other feeder

roads get clogged up.

“In the English context, a university

town is considered highly desirable as

it has its own community and cultural

framework. Lincoln also has excellent

facilities with its new supermarket

currently being expanded, service station,

retail shopping centre, restaurants, a new

library and community centre, and five

decile 10 primary schools in the area” adds

Mike. “All this makes Lincoln a great place

to live.”

Proud to have been building

homes for Cantabrians for

over 25 years.

Live more. Travel less.

45 architecturally designed homes from $440,000

Devon Green, located at the north end of Strauss Drive in

Rolleston is a new boutique sized development offering a

selection of architecturally designed single storey homes and

two storey townhouses.

Professionally landscaped for privacy and to maximise green

living space, the houses include patios, garden areas, planting

and a pocket park for the children to play. Most homes

offer two-car garaging or a single garage with carport, and

generous kitchens with engineered stone bench tops. Ensuites

and walk-in wardrobes feature in most master bedrooms.

With your favourite shops and a choice of parks, schools,

recreational and community facilities (including an aquatic

centre) at your doorstep, you’ll spend more time living

and less time travelling. And if you need to get to the city,

Christchurch is only a 20 minute drive away.

Visit our show homes, open 7 days from 10am to 4pm:

• 45 Vernon Drive, Te Whariki, Lincoln

• 1 Richmond Ave, Knights Stream Park, Halswell
