SPEEDING DRIVERS near West

Rolleston Primary School are

creating concerns for parents,

residents and police.

The school opened in February,

prompting the district council to

lower the speed limit on Dunns

Crossing Rd from 100km/h to

70km/h.

Senior Sergeant

Pete Stills (left) said

police had had a

number of complaints

about speed on

Dunns Crossing Rd

and Lowes Rd.

“Some people might be taking

a bit of time to adjust to the

presence of the new school, but

obviously there is a risk with

the prevalence of the pupils in

that area now, so just as a safety

concern we will be focusing our

patrols there a wee bit more,” he

said.

“We just ask that people keep

their speed down and comply with

the speed restrictions and particularly

the 40km/h speed past the

school requirement.”

Senior Sergeant Stills said the

road had somewhat of a rural

character, being on the edge of

Rolleston.

“There will be a perception to

motorists that it’s open road and

the risk is reduced, but the reality

is it’s not.”

He said police would rather

change behaviours than have to

ticket people.

“History teaches us that when

we focus on bad behaviour outside

schools, we predominately catch

parents with children at the

school, which is always a concern

but that’s the way it is.”

HOLDING ON: Springfield and West Melton played out a 15-all draw in the Colts final on

Saturday which means the teams will share the title this year. The contest was a bruising

Mail deliveries set to halve

• By Tom Doudney

THE NUMBER of mail delivery

days will be slashed in half

for Darfield, West Melton and

Sheffield starting from Monday.

Delivery will fall from six days

to three in these towns, as well

as Oxford in the Waimakariri

district, as part of restructuring

at New Zealand Post, which

is in response to falling mail

volumes.

Rural delivery addresses in the

surrounding areas will continue

to receive mail six days a week.

A New Zealand Post spokeswoman

said the state-owned

enterprise would remain committed

to delivering 95 per cent

of mail within three working

days as it did currently.

“The way we’re delivering

mail is changing, but our service

standards are not,” the spokeswoman

said.

“Express parcels will be delivered

overnight, and post office

box and rural delivery services

will continue as they are now.”

District councillor Sam

Broughton said people he had

spoken to didn’t like the idea

that services were going to be

reduced.

“Getting things delivered

regularly is something which I

think is an important part of the

CUT BACKS: Mail delivery in Darfield, Sheffield and West Melton will be reduced from six days to

three. ​

way people live their lives,” Cr

Broughton said.

“It’s not the end of the world,

but it’s just not a very nice thing

to be happening.”

However, Darfield Community

Committee chairman and

Malvern Butchery owner Paddy

McKay said he hadn’t heard a lot

of concern about the changes.

“A lot of our stuff is emailed

now,” Mr McKay said.

“If it’s going to affect anyone,

it’s probably going to be the

older generation, but mail is

even limited to them now as

well.”

West Melton Residents’ Association

chairman Jeff Waters

said he hadn’t heard from

any residents upset about the

changes.

Several commenters on the

West Melton Community Page

on Facebook said the changes

were understandable and they

didn’t mind.

In July last year, New Zealand

Post started delivering standard

mail every second day in larger

towns and cities, including

Christchurch, Ashburton and

Timaru.

Those changes are now being

rolled out to smaller towns.

Other Selwyn towns will be

affected in the next few years,

but the time line is yet to be announced.

Changes came into effect for

Amberley, Hanmer Springs,

Waikari and Waiau yesterday.

In Brief

STOLEN CAR PURSUED

Police pursued the driver of a

stolen can in the Windwhistle

area on Friday after it was clocked

travelling at 176km/h. Police

lost track of the car which was

last seen heading north on Mt

Hutt Station Rd. The vehicle

had recently been stolen from

Avonhead, Christchurch.

LAND LIST

A drop-in session for landowners

to discuss the inclusion of

properties on the Hazardous

Activities and Industries List will

be held around the district this

week and next week. Staff from

both Environment Canterbury

and the district council will be on

hand. The sessions will be held

at the district council’s Rolleston

headquarters today; the Lincoln

Event Centre tomorrow; the

Glentunnel Hall on Monday;

Leeston Library on August 2; and

the Dunsandel Sports Centre on

August 3. All sessions run from

2-8pm and any enquiries should

be made to ECan.

HEDGE FIRE

Four fire appliances and four

tankers were called to put out

a fire in a 20m pine hedge in

the Charing Cross area on

Saturday at about 2pm. A fire

communications spokeswoman

said it was not known how the fire

had started.

WOULD YOU LIKE SOME NIPPLES?

A colleague recently shared this little

gem with me...

“While at the recent Snow Sports

Awards, a friend of mine who has a

hearing loss approached me with a funny

story. While having dinner at a local

Otago restaurant, the waitress said to

him “Would you like some nipples?”

The waitress was young and pretty and

knowing his glory days were over years

ago, he was quite taken back. He looked

around, she was definitely talking to

him.... And she asked again, “Would you

like some nipples?”

His “dream come true” moment ended

abruptly when he realised she was

actually asking him if he wanted some

“NIBBLES!””

Misunderstandings like these are often

key drivers that prompt people to finally

take action on their hearing loss. The

average person has been struggling to

hear for 7 to 10 years before they come

in to see me. Why so much resistance

to getting hearing impairment diagnosed

and treated? Denial is

a factor that cant be ignorred.

Many older adults like to think

that they don’t have a problem

and ignore the numerous

warning signs, including awkward

social faux pas. People

compensate by using their

“good ear” or turning up the

volume or smiling and nodding instead

of actually understanding a conversation.

The number one comments I hear from

customers are “I hear what I want to

hear” and “I know I should have done

something about it a lot sooner.” “The

honest truth is that in order to be fully

engaged in life, you have to be able to

communicate and be communicated

to.” “Hearing well is a vital part of being

social and being engaged in social

settings,” says Brenna.

Brenna Sincock Hearing

Call 03 390 2332 today

““““I understand why people procrastinate

and put it off but really, hearing is so

important, it needs to be highter on our

collective list of priorites. Nine out of

ten people I see say “I wish I had got my

hearing sorted sooner.” They experience

the instant benefit and it has such a positive

impact on their day to day lives.”

ROLLESTON’S Masefield Drive

could be in line for $150,000

upgrade which would see a

footpath and kerbing installed

along a 320m section.

The district council will vote

tomorrow on whether to add the

project to the current Annual

Plan.

Funding comes from an unbudgeted

Sicon dividend which

has now been added to the annual

budget.

Masefield Drive is classified

as an arterial road, and is a key

route to the town centre

carrying about 4000 vehicles

per day.

The Malvern Community

Board are also considering getting

a Menz Shed up and running

Student UN-bound

• By Caitlin Miles

A BIZARRE question and

lost email led to a Lincoln

High School student heading

to the United Nations

headquarters.

Hannah Long has been

accepted to the United Nations

Youth New Zealand Global

Development Tour 2017.

Before being accepted she was

interviewed by the directors of

the United Nations Youth New

Zealand.

“The first question they asked

me was would I rather have

ramen for hair or mushrooms

for ears. I picked ramen, I got

the straight hair gene and I

have always wanted curly hair,”

Hannah said.

The moment she found out

she had been accepted to the

trip not as exciting as it was

stressful. The email notifying

her she had been accepted got

sent to her junk email.

“We got told we would be

notified by email if we had been

accepted, it had got to 11pm

and I didn’t think I had been

accepted, then I checked my

spam for some reason and it

was there,” she said.

Fellow Lincoln High student

Rafael Clarke has also

been accepted for the

programme.

It involves three weeks

travelling around Europe

before spending a week at

the UN headquarters in New

York to learn about global

development, international

cooperation, and the role the

UN plays in both.

Hannah has been a member

of the UN Youth New Zealand

for three years. She has

previously represented France

at a UN Youth conference. The

young people have to gather

information on the country

they represent and discuss the

issues with each other.

Hannah has been keeping a

keen eye on the news overseas

and while she is a little

apprehensive she is also excited

by the chance to be around so

much change.

There were 22 people

throughout New Zealand

selected for the trip.

Hannah has started a

Givealittle page titled Get

Hannah to the Global

Development Tour 2017 to

help her raise the $9000 to pay

for it before the tour starts next

year.

EXCITED: Hannah Long represented France at last year’s

regional UN Youth conference and she represented Singapore

this year’s event. She will spend three weeks travelling around

Europe before heading to the UN headquarters in New York

next year.

uptake of farm computer systems

is written about the Kellogg Farm

Management Unit at Lincoln,

which Dr Nuthall founded and

was head of for all but two years

of its existence, from 1980 to 1995.

SKATE PARK SITE

The site of the former children’s

Selwyn history in print

• By Tom Doudney

DAYS GONE BY: Rolleston in the late 1950s. Celebrations

planned to mark the town’s 150th anniversary have inspired a

new book on Selwyn’s history. ​

A NEW book which would be

the first to extensively cover

Selwyn’s history is in the works.

The impetus for the book came

out of planning for Rolleston’s

150th anniversary celebrations

in October.

District council staff member

Wayne Stack, who has a masters

degree in military history,

volunteered to write it after an

approach from district councillor

and Rolleston anniversary

committee chairman Jeff Bland.

It is expected to take 12 to 18

months to complete.

Mr Stack said the exact scope

of the book has yet to be decided

but it was likely to be a substantial

work covering the history of

the whole district, rather than

just the Rolleston area.

“There have been books written

about the Ellesmere county

and the Malvern county which

were part of the amalgamation

to bring Selwyn together but

there is nothing there to actually

put Selwyn on the map as a

district in itself,” he said.

Selwyn was formed in 1989

when the Ellesmere and Malvern

counties and the rural half of the

Paparua county were amalgamated.

Cr Bland said the writing of

the book was an exciting development.

A previous book had

covered the history of Rolleston

up until the period before the

town’s growth had really taken

off but with the milestone coming

up it was important to have a

book which also reflected recent

history.

“Since we have been talking

about this 150th it has become

obvious that we need to update

our history,” he said.

“We think of history as 40, 50,

60 years ago but hang on, history

is yesterday as well.”

Mr Stack will also be working

on a display of historic photographs

and other items from the

Rolleston area which will be part

of the 150th anniversary celebrations.

It will be one of a number of

displays and events to take place

over three days from October 14

to 16. The main celebrations will

be held on October 15 at a site

on the corner of Jones Rd and

Hoskyns Rd.

•Anyone able to contribute

historic photographs, or

other items and material

which might help Mr Stack

with compiling the book and

150th anniversary exhibit

can phone 347 2851.

Roundabout work to start

WORK WILL start within a

week on changes to a five-legged

roundabout in Rolleston.

The Goulds Rd, Tennyson St,

Springtson Rolleston Rd and

Lowes Rd roundabout is ‘not

suitable’ for the growing amount

of traffic using it.

The access to the roundabout

from Goulds Rd will be cut off

later this month and will be

permanently closed from August

1, changing the current five-road

intersection to four.

Goulds Rd will become a dead

end near the dog park.

The Selwyn Times previously

reported that the Rolleston Residents

Association and Rolleston

College has safety concerns

around students navigating the

roundabout once Rolleston College

opens next year.

Broadlands Drive has been

extended past the college

to create a roundabout at

Springston Rolleston Rd.

The extension to Broadlands

Drive past the college to create

a roundabout at Springston

Rolleston Rd have finished so

now work to change the fivelegged

roundabout will begin.

District council asset manager

of transportation, Andrew

Mazey said the changes will be

made because the roundabout

has had an increasing amount of

traffic use it .

“The existing layout of the

roundabout as a five-road junction

is not suitable given the

growing vehicle numbers and

the change is designed to improve

the roundabout’s safety,”

Mr Mazey said.

During the work on the

roundabout people will still be

able to access it from Goulds Rd

until August 1.

Traffic lights are planned to be

put in place at the intersection in

three year’s time.

Our newly

painted premises

More than repair work has occurred at Marks Automotive Ltd lately. The

landlord has had the building strengthened to bring it up to code and Kumho

have painted and sign-written the premises.

Owners, Leona and Mark Nicholas are delighted with the changes, and proud

to be members of the Kumho Tyre Team which allows them to offer excellent

prices on new tyres.

Marks Automotive provides a range of automotive repairs and servicing

including European vehicles, campervans, quad bikes, small trucks and horse

floats. They carry out WOFs, sell tyres and batteries, and offer Gas Bottle

swaps.

Mark has the latest scanning diagnostic equipment allowing diagnostic

analysis on a variety of vehicles and with Mark and Sam’s enthusiasm for

automotive electronics it is not surprising that they take care of this work

in-house.

Mark and Leona have another workshop with resource consent to perform

the larger jobs such as engine and transmission replacements.

As a member of the MTA, their high standard of workmanship is also

assured. This fits with their policy of affordable and sensible repairs whilst

emphasising vehicle safety. It explains why so many people locally and from

further afield, are loyal customers who they look after.

They have five loan cars. The mechanics note servicing and repairs that will

be due in the future while WOF, service and recommendation reminders are

sent out to clients.

A new mechanic, Fyn has also joined Mark, Sam, Matt and Macca in the

workshop, supported by apprentices, Will and Isaac and four efficient office

staff (Jamie and Leona, full-time and Ellie and Sarah, part-time), along

with after-school helpers, Matt and Dylan who keep the workshop tidy and

loan cars clean.

“Our team’s awesome. It’s a polite and happy group including Rosie our dog,”

adds Leona.

Waihora/Lake Ellesmere.

Phillip Marcs, of Prebbleton –

The money for cleaning the lake

is not nearly enough. I haven’t

lived in Selwyn for very long,

only several years, and I am told

that it was once a beautiful place

that was clean and full of life.

The lake is one of the biggest

in New Zealand, $12 million is

clearly not going to be enough

to get it back to what it once

was. I would love to take my

family there and be able to use

it for recreational use. It needs a

serious look at and for someone

to actually make the health of the

lake a priority.

It’s a real shame to see

something that like this go to

waste. How much beneficial work

can be done over decades? Will

it even be noticeable? It needs a

serious cash injection and proper

work needs to be done quicker

than ‘decades’.

I don’t want to see it deteriorate

further and become worse.

Things need to change.

K Partridge, of Leeston – Yes,

clean up Lake Ellesmere.

This lake can be so beautiful

to look at some days but the fact

it is so unhealthy is common

knowledge.

With a clean-up the lake could

look and be so healthy and a

great place to enjoy. I sometimes

go there, not to get in the water,

but just to enjoy the sight and

scenery and I think it is such a

shame more people don’t use it.

I think $12 million is the right

start but how long will it take to

make it like it was?

They say decades and that’s a

really long time. The place needs

to be fixed now.

Readers respond to last

week’s article on a pig farm

operation that has upset

neighbours

Rose Daniels, of West

Melton – I feel for the people

living near that pig farm. I

certainly wouldn’t want one to

move in near me either.

The smell must be horrible and

I can’t imagine what the dust

must be like. The other people

who were living there first didn’t

buy their land or house expecting

a pig farm to go in near them

with no warning. It’s just rude.

I’m glad the district council

seem to actually be doing

something about this problem

and making them remove the

pigs.

It will be interesting to see if

they listen to them. Good on the

homeowners for speaking up and

not letting it continue.

Isaac Andrews, of Rolleston

– I can’t imagine what living next

to a pig farm must be like.

I understand the need for

them but to set one up without

letting the people near by know

what’s going on is not good

enough.

Setting up an operation like

this leads to a whole load of

problems. The noise, dust and

mainly the smell. I certainly

would complain too if I lived

near it.

How back and forth from the

district council though. They get

complaints from the neighbours

about it make the farm owners

get an abatement notice and

apply for consent then grant

them the consent.

Where is the consistency?

Now they’re telling them they

have to get rid of the pigs. Must

be confusing for all the parties

involved.

SELWYN TIMES

Another project added to help benefit

After moving to the other side of the world for

love, Dee Innes has made Windwhistle her

home. She spoke to Caitlin Miles about taking on

a farming life and why she became a trustee on

the Hororata Community Trust.

Congratulations on becoming a

trustee on the Hororata

Community Trust.

Thank you, yes it’s great to be

on the trust and to continue to

support them and the work they

do in the community.

Why did you want to become

a trustee?

The reason I became a trustee

is because I hope to give my

input and be as successful with

the trust as I can be. I know a lot

of people in the area since I have

been here so long so, hopefully,

that will help and they’ll continue

to support me.

Do you do a lot of work for

the community?

Ever since I moved here I’ve

had an interest in the area and

people, it was a great way to meet

people and get to know the community

and the area. I didn’t do

so much when my son was small.

Once he started at Windwhistle

School I got more involved with

the community and I continued

to add more projects as he got

older.

Can you tell me about some

of the work you have done

within the community?

Well, it has all been on-going

over a few years now. I’ve always

been interested in people so

that’s why I like working with the

community. We use to have ‘Dee’s

Day’ where people in the community

could come and sell their

wares. It just started as a day for

some friends to try and sell some

items but it grew to 100 stalls. We

would get 200 to 300 people

show up at our

property

for it and it

would turn

into a big

catch-up.

I was also

involved

in the

Northern

Community

Board

when it was

running. We got to travel around

the area and learn more about

Selwyn, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I

was also involved in the Northern

Community Arts, Arts Canterbury,

Malvern Community Arts

and Celebrating Selwyn.

Have you had a lot to do with

art.

Yes, I enjoy art and seeing it

continue to do well in Selwyn.

There are some people who are

very good artists and it’s great

to be able to support them and

continue to work with and recognise

their art. I was also the art

teacher at Darfield High

School.

Are you an artist yourself?

It’s just a hobby, it’s nothing

serious. I dabble in painting and

drawing. I’ve done patchwork

for 40 years though, I learnt

with my sister-in-law.

How long have you lived

in Selwyn?

We’ve lived in Windwhistle

for 31 years. We

lived in the Mackenzie

District for several

years before we moved

here. I moved from

England to New Zealand

when I met my husband so

it was quite a big move

but I was happy to

do it.

How did you meet your husband?

Our family knew his family

and my sister had worked on his

family farm when she was

in New Zealand. I went to the

farm to say thank you for giving

her work and a place to live

while she was here. That’s when

I met him, Gerald.

Was your first trip to New

Zealand the time you met your

Gerald?

I had visited once many years

before with my grandmother,

we travelled by ship that time. I

was seven. That was very exciting

as a young girl. I got use to the

movement on the ship very

quickly. I remember when we

finally got off the boat I kept

swaying for a while. We visited

friends and then went back. It

certainly was a long time on a

ship to visit here but it was great

fun.

Did you travel all the way to

New Zealand just to say thank

you to his family?

At the time I was visiting

friends that were sprinkled

around the globe. I went from

Japan to China to Indonesia then

on to Australia and then I came

to New Zealand and met Gerald

and stayed.

That was a pretty bold move,

did you have family here?

No, I didn’t, it was just me. I

had some friends I was

travelling with but when I met

Gerald I just decided to stay. His

family were wonderful too, so I

didn’t mind being here without

my family because I had his. I

stayed in New Zealand for as

long as I could and then I had

to go back to England because

my visa ran out. We got married

over there and moved back

here.

Dee Innes

ACHIEVERS

How long had you known

one another for before getting

married?

Well, I had known his parents

but not him directly. We met

in January of 1976 and were

married by the August. That

was the done thing back then

though, it wasn’t uncommon, we

didn’t live together before we got

married either. It was different

back then.

Was it hard leaving all your

family in England?

My family has visited me over

the years so I was never cut off

from them. Also Gerald’s family

were great. They really became

my family, they gave me lots

of support and they were very

welcoming.

When you went back to England

to get married why didn’t

you stay there?

Gerald is a farm boy through

and through, I couldn’t take him

out of the farm and put him in

England. I was happy to follow

him back here and set up life on

a farm.

Did you come from a farm?

No. When I moved over here

to be with Gerald I learnt about

working on a farm. It was quite

a change from life in England to

New Zealand, so that was quite

a good challenge to take on. I

didn’t really do too much on

HOME: Gerald and Dee Innes have lived on their farm

Windwhistle for 31 years and they still enjoy the alpine views.

the farm, I helped out a bit but

Gerald did everything else.

What did you farm?

Sheep, cattle and deer.

You said you taught art at

Darfield High School, did you

study art before you came to

New Zealand?

I studied African history

at London University. After

I finished I lived and worked

in South Africa for about 14

months and visited Tanzania.

Do you still travel?

Yes we do. We have just come

back from a trip to Hungary to

see a friend of ours. We met in

Budapest and travelled to see her

father. We still have friends all

around the world who we try and

visit when we can. That’s our way

of relaxing. Also spending time

with my family and our three

grandchildren.

Flooring Apprentice of the Year

Awards.

The winners were selected

based on their achievements and

the skills they displayed during

BCITO chief executive Warwick

about recognising apprentices.

“These events really are the

culmination of everything we

are about at BCITO. Celebrating

excellence in our young achievers,

after years of dedication and

hard work, is heart-warming to

us and really reflects what we

want every apprentice under our

wing to aspire to,” Mr Quinn

said.

Mr Mifrano moved to New

Zealand from the Philippines six

years ago.

He decided on a flooring

apprenticeship after starting

work for John Cooper Flooring

the challenging nature of the

trade.

He worked there for three

years and then completed his

final year at Dominion Flooring.

Mr Mifrano now runs his

own installation company, R M

Lincoln HS score first

win in UC Championship

• By Gordon Findlater

THE WAIT is over for

Lincoln High School – the

first XV had their first win

in the UC Championship

on Saturday.

The 19-14 win over Ashburton

College was their

first win in 2016.

The team couldn’t have

picked a better time, with

the match airing live on

Sky Sport as part of their

first XV rugby coverage.

“It was a great win. We

were trying not to hype up

the game too much during

the week and just wanted

to treat it like another

match,” said Lincoln High

School director of rugby

Leslie Greenslade.

Ashburton scored two

tries to Lincoln’s one.

Lock Regan Kay

grabbed Lincoln’s lone try,

with the boot of first-five

Corey McKay sealing victory

for the home side.

McKay was perfect,

kicking four penalties

from as many attempts.

He also kicked a conversion

from the touchline

following Kay’s try.

“He had an outstanding

game. He had the ball on

a string and made some

really crucial kicks,” said

Greenslade.

It’s been a tough year up

to this point for Lincoln,

who came into Saturday

with 11 defeats and a draw

from 12 games.

“That’s the pleasing

thing for the team, they

were shell-shocked following

the first game of the

year.

“They’ve all improved

individually and as a

team from then on,” said

Greenslade.

Sunday 6 November

21.1km, 10km, 5km & 1400m Kids Dash

So many of us think about getting fit or running a marathon but

the hardest part is making the commitment. So to avoid yet

another year disappearing without getting off the couch sign

up for the Shoe Clinic Selwyn Running Festival on 6 November

2016.

This local event, held in Leeston, is in its 6th year and gaining

momentum. There is a distance for everyone from the Half

Marathon to the Kids Dash as well as walking events. There is

even a three person team category in the 10km run.

The course starts in Leeston and runs the rural roads to

Southbridge and beyond. There is no better feeling as you turn

the last bend and head for home down the main road of Leeston

with the locals lining the street cheering you on.

We want to encourage all runners and walkers whether this is

your first event or you are an elite runner. By signing up now

you have made your first step to achieving your goal.

LINCOLN ROAD RUNNERS

LRR is the newest of the Road Runner groups and makes use of the

roads in and around Lincoln University. We are lucky to have the

full support of the University and are super proud to be hosting our

weekly community group there.

The Rec Centre is the ideal home for the group and the ‘figure 8’

course means you are never far from home. This is a group, like

Ellesmere and Malvern Road Runners, that caters to all abilities. It is

a fantastic chance for the public to (re)acquaint themselves with

the university and we appreciate the use of their grounds and

facilities.

Everyone is welcome so come along on Tuesday evenings from

5.40pm and join in with the active Lincoln community!!

ENGAGE: Lincoln’s forwards prepare for a scrum battle with a big Ashburton

College pack.

Selwyn residents are being invited to celebrate the Rio Olympics and support St John’s project to

build a new facility in Rolleston with a fun afternoon of games and awards at the Selwyn Aquatic

Centre on Saturday 6 August.

The Olympic Games will officially open in Rio de Janeiro on Friday 5 August (the morning of 6

August New Zealand Time) and 195 New Zealand athletes will be competing in 19 sports.

“We’re excited to host a fun event which everyone in Selwyn can be part of to celebrate the start

of the Olympics,” says Aquatic Facilities Manager Kathy Moore. “This is also 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.”

The Swim to Rio challenge has been running since February with a target for swimmers to cover

a combined distance of 11,765 kilometres – the distance from Lyttelton to Rio de Janeiro. There

has been full community support through sponsorship of swimmers, sausage sizzles, raffles,

donations and a bake sale with the funds going to the Rolleston St John project. Over 10,000

kilometres has been completed to date.

The Aquatic Olympics on Saturday 6 August will run between 2-4pm at the centre. Swim to Rio

Challenge participants who have covered the longest distance will be recognised with an award at

a podium presentation. A cheque from the challenge will also be presented to St John.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the event which will include Olympic-themed water games

like javelin noodle throw, aquatic sprints and paddle boat relay races.

“We’re inviting ‘Olympic’ competitors both young and old to enter the games and dress up in the

colours of the country they want to represent,” says Kathy Moore. “We are looking forward to the

day and we think it will be fantastic fun.”

There will also be music, spot prizes sponsored by Speedo and a bake sale with the profits going

to St John. Normal pool entry admission prices apply. Swimmers are requested not to wear face

paint in the pool.

Building Expo for

Construction Industry

If you work in trade or construction our friendly building team is

looking forward to talking with you at the BuildNZ expo coming up

at Horncastle Arena from Thursday 4 – Saturday 6 August. The expo

is for those in the construction and trade industry and is free for

industry representatives to attend, but you need to register first (visit

www.canterburybuildnz.co.nz to do this).

BuildNZ showcases a variety of new products and services like

home automation, cladding, insulation, timber and more. There will

be a wide range of exhibitors along with some optional free short

seminar sessions on various topics.

The Council’s building team will be at the expo to talk about our

building inspection process and how we could improve this service

and answer questions about the building consent process.

New library kiosks coming soon

Selwyn Libraries are rolling out new kiosks at each library branch

over the next month and staff are looking forward to showing you

how quick and easy they are use.

Lincoln and Rolleston library customers have been using self-issue

kiosks for over a year now. The kiosks can be used to issue library

items, see what items you have on loan, renew items and pay any

charges via cash or EFTPOS.

Represent your community in local elections

Nominations for candidates for local elections are now open until 12 noon on 12 August 2016.

Local councils provide a wide range of services to the community like parks, libraries, roads,

community centres, water, events and civil defence and by standing for election you can help make

decisions about how services should be provided.

Anyone over the age of 18 can stand for election if they are a New Zealand citizen and on the electoral

roll. Candidates must be nominated on an official nomination form available during opening hours from

Darfield, Leeston and Lincoln Library and the Council’s Rolleston Headquarters. A form can also be

posted to you on request by phoning 347 2800 or 318 8338. Nomination forms must be signed by two

electors on the electoral roll in the ward or subdivision that the person is nominated for.

Rolleston Road, the Goulds Road leg of the Lowes Road/Tennyson

Street roundabout will be closed to traffic from Monday 1 August

onwards. The change is being made to improve the roundabouts safety

as vehicle numbers using it have increased. The reduced traffic using

Goulds Road will also make this a safer walking and cycling route.

From 1 August onwards, access to the west end of Goulds Road will be

through Broadlands Drive. A full upgrade to this roundabout is planned

for 2019/20 with traffic signals to be installed to provide an improved

crossing for pedestrians and cyclists.

NEW STUDENTS: The Korean students were welcomed by

politician Steven Joyce at a ceremony in Methven last week.

Korean students in Selwyn schools

KOREAN STUDENTS are

about to make Lincoln and

Darfield High Schools their own

for the next eight weeks.

As part of the Free Trade

Agreement that was signed

between New Zealand and Korea

last year, 150 Korean students

will attend high school and university

in New Zealand as part of

a three-year programme.

Fifty-five of those students are

at Canterbury schools.

The Korean students come

from rural and semi-rural backgrounds

and have been accepted

to the programme on scholarships

to improve their English

language skills.

The students are aged between

14 and 16-years-old.

The students were welcomed

at a ceremony in Methven with

tertiary education, skills and employment

minister Steven Joyce

before meeting their homestay

families.

During their time in Canterbury

they will stay with host

families while they attend school

and learn more about the culture

as well as extending their English

language skills.

Lincoln High School principal

Kathy Paterson said it was exciting

for the school to be accepted

in the programme.

“We’re excited to have

this opportunity. We are

hugely supportive of having

international students,” said Mrs

Paterson.

Lincoln High School’s five

Korean students started last

week with an introduction to

the school before meeting their

fellow classmates.

The students have been able to

choose their own classes to take

while they study.

Promoting sport aim of activities day

ARCHERY, SOFTBALL and

learning to hula-hoop are on the

cards at the upcoming Have a

Go Day.

These activities are part of the

event organised by the district

council to encourage residents

from around Selwyn to take

part in trying over 20 different

sports..

The district council has

organised the day to promote

sport and community groups.

District council recreation

adviser Dave Tippett said the

event was popular last year.

More than 2000 people went

along.

GOLF PRACTICE: Last year participants tried their hand at inflatable golf. ​

“Last year’s event was extremely

popular and this year we

have some great new activities

for people to try out including

high ropes for kids and adults,

Scouts, Girl Guides, highland

dancing and wheelchair sports,”

said Mr Tippett.

Along with sports there

will also be fitness classes on

offer at the day.

Rolleston Library will also

be giving lessons in how to use

technology resources and training

courses.

Have a Go Day passports will

be available from August 1 at

Selwyn Libraries, the Lincoln

Event Centre, Rolleston Community

Centre, council offices

in Rolleston or on the day at the

event.

The passports include tickingoff

activities to win prizes.

The free event will be held

on Sunday, August 14, from

12-3pm at Rolleston Community

Centre.

SELWYN TIMES

Take a cruise on the smartest

• By Mike Yardley

BY ANY measure, it’s a colossus

and it’s coming to a port near

you. After all, this is a ship that

cracks 19,900 eggs a day in its

main kitchen.

Fresh from the inaugural sailing

from its European shipyards

via the Middle East to Asia, I’ve

just spent three night’s aboard

Ovation of a Seas on a taster

cruise out of Singapore.

New car smell is a knock-out

fragrance, but new mega-ship

smell kept my nostrils partying

for 72 hours. So just how big is

this billion dollar behemoth?

It may not be the most salubrious

frame of reference, but

she weighs in at four times the

tonnage of Titanic. She’s three

and half rugby fields long. One

and a half laps around the running

track clocks up a kilometre.

Catering to 4900 passengers and

boasting 1300 crew, she towers

15 stories.

Currently ranked as the

fourth-equal largest cruise ship

in the world (Royal Caribbean

clean sweeps the top five), this

latest entrant to the company’s

Quantum Class of vessels is also

considered the smartest ship at

sea.

Aside from the daily Cruise

VIRTUAL SKYDIVING: Soar like an eagle and get full body exfoliation.

Compass programme of activities,

there’s a conspicuous

absence of paper – a very good

thing given passenger loading.

Liberally sprinkled across

the ship, Royal IQ stations and

mounted iPads, enable you to

book every activity imaginable,

from shore excursions, to spa

treatments. You can also download

the Royal IQ app, which

doesn’t require paid for WiFi to

operate, to make bookings and

build your custom calendar, on

your own device.

Speaking of WiFi, Royal Caribbean

reputedly offers the speediest

service at sea. I despise WiFi

charges, and Royal Caribbean’s

web packages start at a pesky

US$13 a day – but at least the

service is robust and Roadrunner-fast.

The design elements and contemporary

art works throughout

the vessel ooze class, comparable

to the fresh, crisp and elegant

interiors of a new build, five-star

hotel. Royal Caribbean whips

up much buzz over its inventive

prowess to its active leisure

and entertainment offerings like

North Star, the glass capsule that

soars 90m above and to the side

of the ship, and Flowrider, the

virtual surfing innovation.

But the newest toy is Ripcord

by iFLY – the world’s first freefalling

skydive simulator at sea.

Previously disgracing myself

on Flowrider, I was determined

to make a better fist of virtual

skydiving. After being suited up

and given a basic skills briefing,

you’re encased within a billowing

glass tube, with a gargantuan

vertical fan (covered by a

grill) blasting air up at you at

160km/h.

Thrust airborne, I felt like a

levitating monk. And if you’ve

studiously followed the briefing,

astutely assuming the optimum

body positions, you’ll soar like

an eagle. But you certainly feel

battered by the wind force.

After this unexpected full body

exfoliation, I saw no need to

book a spa treatment or massage.

iFLY is an energising bodybashing

thriller. The entertaining

swirl of sensory thrills continue

at Seaplex, which is like a minitheme

park.

ship at sea

Royal Caribbean’s bells

and whistles are all geared at

courting the family market,

although there were plenty

of seniors aboard having a

whale of a time. At night, I

sampled Two70, the futuristic

entertainment venue which has

revolutionised the typical bigshow

affair at sea.

The multi-storey glass-panelled

back end of the ship transforms

into a sweeping screen for

projections, while six flat-screen

rhythmic robots, called roboscreens,

rev up the illumination

magic even more.

Studded with high-tech wizardry,

the multi-dimensional live

shows on Ovation of the Seas

would have to be the best I’ve

ever seen, on a cruise. Robotic

technology has also invented

mixology, with Royal Caribbean’s

Bionic Bar. Order up a

cocktail on the bar’s iPad and

watch the robotic mixologists

make it and shake it.

When it comes to libations, I

far prefer chatting to bar staff but

for pure gimmickry, the Bionic

Bar is a good for a giggle.

Prior to boarding, I had apocalyptic

dreams about how hideous

feeding 5000 people, at the same

time, might look. The traditional

notion of the main dining room

has been unceremoniously axed

on Ovation, replaced with five

complimentary and distinct

main restaurants.

They form part of the ship’s

full culinary arsenal, serving up

an unrivalled 18 separate dining

venues. I sampled some the

ship’s signature restaurants, like

Izumi, Wonderland and Jamie’s

Italian, which were truly exceptional.

If you’re up for a dose of extravagant

molecular gastronomy

in fantasy surrounds, Wonderland

wows with its zany, foodscience-based

cuisine.

BEHEMOTH: Ovation of a

Seas caters up to 4900 passengers

with 1300 crew.

ROBOTIC: Quench your

thirst in the Bionic Bar. Order

up a cocktail on the iPad

and watch the robotic mixologists

make it,

FAST FACTS

• Royal Caribbean’s

Baking perfection is no piece of cake

Cakes by Anna owner

Anna Worthington

• By Gabrielle Stuart

IT WAS cake perfection:

Three layers baked, iced and

decorated, ready for a wedding

that afternoon – until Anna

Worthington dropped it.

As a new business-owner,

looking down at the mess that

was the once perfect cake she

had spent hours crafting, she

said it was one of her lowest

points.

But also it taught her perspective,

she said.

She was able to pull herself

together and create a new cake

in just three hours, and the bride

and groom never learned about

the disaster, she said.

“I used to lose sleep over

making wedding cakes. But now

I think even in the worst case

scenario, if I was to walk into the

reception and drop the cake in

front of them, it would have to

be pretty bad to completely ruin

their wedding.”

It was the same attitude that

gave her the courage to quit her

job to start her own cake-making

business, Cakes by Anna.

She grew up in Christchurch,

but left the city as a teenager to

do a fine arts degree in Auckland.

She went overseas after she

graduated, and travelled around

Europe for more than a year.

There, she put her hand up

for whatever work she could

find, and discovered she really

enjoyed cooking and baking.

She was also inspired by the

food and culture around community

markets there, she said.

She returned to Christchurch

in 2012, not planning to stay for

long, but said she was inspired

by what was happening in the

city.

“Growing up I didn’t have a

big attachment to Christchurch.

It felt it wasn’t exciting enough

for me. But coming back I was

meeting really interesting people,

and it felt like a fresh start.”

She began working in a cafe,

but on the side began developing

her own business idea, selling

cakes at the Christchurch Farmers

Market in Riccarton.

She said a lot of cakes being

sold at the time were very sweet

and covered in fondant, and she

wanted to do something different.

Her goal was to use as many

natural and local ingredients as

she could, and always experiment

– pulling together flavour

combinations like gin, lime and

coconut or her most popular

pear, date and salted caramel

cakes.

She began baking cakes after

work in her mother’s kitchen,

and selling them each weekend,

but she said the business grew

fast.

“I was working crazy hours,

from 6am to 2pm at the cafe

in the kitchen, and once I was

finished there I would go and do

baking until late. After about six

months doing both jobs I totally

burnt out.”

At that point she quit her job

to start baking full-time.

Although it was a big step, she

decided she had nothing to lose.

“After I quit the job I realised

I had so much more time to put

effort into it and really research

recipes, and instead of being

tired all the time I was really

enjoying it.”

She now has one employee,

and works form a commercial

kitchen in Linwood.

Although she has enough

work from orders from local cafes

and events to keep the business

going, she still plans to stick

to her roots and keep her market

stall running each week.

HOMEGROWN: Cakes By Anna started as a small stall at the

Riccarton House market, but Anna Worthington now works from

a commercial kitchen and has a growing customer base.

Gardening

Plant silverbeet in stages for constant supply

• By Tod Palenski

SPINACH AND silverbeet are the perfect

space fillers in a winter vege garden.

Plant them in between your larger

and longer growing vegetables like

broccoli and cauliflower and they’ll

be finished with the space before its

needed.

They’re both full of vitamins, are

perfect additions to a wide variety of

dishes and, my favourite, you can pick

the leaves off the plants as they reach

the size you desire.

Once you’ve got your seedlings you

need to find a spot to plant them. Spinach

likes full sun and well-fertilised soil.

And silverbeet likes well-drained soil –

which, actually makes it really good for

planting in pots.

Before you start gardening it pays to

mix into the soil some compost or a

good general fertiliser like nitrophoska

blue.

Then simply plant your seedlings

around 20cm apart from each other.

Remember, if you’ve planted (or are

planning to grow) longer growing

vegetables, like any members of the

brassica family, plant your silverbeet

and spinach seedlings in the rows in

between.

Both of these tasty veges are also enjoyed

by slugs and snails so keep an eye

out for these slimy pests.

Depending on the condition of your

soil your space filling plants will be

ready to harvest in around eight to 12

weeks. If your soil is well composted

and free-draining you’ll be looking at

more like eight weeks.

And remember if you want a constant

supply of beet and spinach – stagger

your planting (plant more every couple

of weeks).

HEALTHY: Silverbeet and spinach like full sun and well-drained soil.

Control pests with winter spraying

THE BEST antidote to a pest and

disease-ridden spring garden is thorough

winter spraying.

Nothing toxic is required — simply

give plants a good dowsing of copper

spray, followed a week later by an application

of spraying oil. Both of these are

regarded as organic.

Repeat three times over the winter

months to kill both overwintering insect

eggs and disease spores. It’s especially

important to spray fruit trees (including

citrus), roses and other deciduous plants,

as well as any plants badly infested with

insect pests or disease last summer.

In fact, you should spray the entire

garden, but wait for any winter-flowering

plants to finish blooming before you

begin.

Garden pests lurk in the most unexpected

places.

Check the undersides of leaves for

scale insects, and leaf sheaths and stems

for mealybug and scale.

Look for silvering of leaves on evergreen

shrubs and trees including rhododendrons,

camellias and pieris. This

silvering indicates the presence of thrips.

Spray oil to clean these up and reduce

their numbers for spring. Collect diseased

fallen leaves and place in the rubbish

bin (not the organics bin).

Spray the ground around infected

plants with copper spray to help kill

disease spores.

Winter-hardy weeds can overrun the

garden, making control in spring a nightmare.

Spray with fast-acting glyphosate

or dig out hard-to-kill weeds such as

dock. Once weeding is done, fork compost

through soil and mulch with a 10cm

layer of fine bark or pea straw.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

Can you please tell me what I need to do to care for the camellia’s I

have in my garden? I haven’t done much with them since I moved

in, and wondered what it is I need to do to keep them at their best?

You will notice that your camellias have been blooming through the

Answer: last months. Some varieties will have stopped blooming now, but some

are still in flower. The end of winter is a great time to give them a feed of

fertiliser, add some mulch and give them a wee rim. To feed them, use Intelligro Azalea, Camellia

and Rhododendron fertiliser. They don’t require a lot, as

this can cause more harm than good, so make sure you

follow the application instructions are on the container.

If you are unsure of anything, you can ask our friendly

team if you have any further questions. A layer of our

Organic Compost is also a great option to apply to your

soil. Just remember to leave a ring around the base of

your plant. This is especially important if you find that

your soil is very heavy and needs something to improve drainage. It will

also help to retain moisture in the soil, which will decrease the chances

of drought-stress. Pruning to keep them in a tidy shape is recommended.

Make sure that your secateurs are sharp so you get a clean cut. Pruning

will also encourage new growth, so it definitely has its benefits. These

are the main things to think about with your camellias. They are pretty

care-free plants that will produce beautiful blooms through the wintery

days. We hope this helps!

MY PRIDE & JOY

SELWYN TIMES

A CAMARO TO DRIVE AND ENJOY

Jason had been scrolling TradeMe,

looking for a project car to restore when he

saw a 1979 Chevrolet Camaro advertised for

sale. The car looked interesting and being

an american left-hand drive, it had more

appeal for him than a more basic model of

car so he thought it would be a good project.

“The older 60s Camaros have been very

popular which has priced them out of the

range for many hobbyists. The 1970 to 1981

second generation Camaro models are more

affordable, which might explain why they’ve

grown in popularity,” suggests Jason.

When Jason purchased the Camaro, he

said its condition was below average and

while the paintwork had been re-sprayed,

closer inspection showed that it was in poor

condition.

The Camaro was fitted with the basic

305 cubic inch engine, which while more

economical to run had in Jason’s words,

no grunt so this was replaced with a 383

engine.

“It was typical of the era,” explains

Jason. “Most american models were

under-powered at the time to save on fuel

consumption.”

Jason started with a brand new roller cam

block and contracted an engine builder,

engine Reconditioning services in Tai Tapu

to build the engine, which he then installed.

The interior had what Jason described

as a rather unattractive tacky grey interior

so this was changed to black vinyl and

after-market non genuine seats along with

steering wheel were added.

The Camaro is a three speed Th (turbo)

350 automatic, two-door, four-seater coupe

and Jason has added a replica of an L88

hood scoop, along with chrome 17 inch

wheels on the front and 18 inch wheels on

the back to give the car a more staggered

muscle car look.

Jason says that it is a bit of a petrol guzzler

due to the new motor though fun to drive

and reasonably comfortable so a great

weekend cruiser.

he has taken the Camaro to the Ruapuna

drag strip for a couple of social events,

where it achieved 13.7 for the quarter mile.

“It was a lot of fun and good to see what

the car would do,” adds Jason who says the

restoration took over five years.

he has kept no record of the cost

of restoring the car, with repairs and

modifications carried out as money allowed.

The car was able to be driven for most of

that time, except for the last year when the

car was painted a dark metallic blue colour.

Jason now has the 1979 Chevrolet Camaro

the way he wants it.

“It’s what I always wanted but couldn’t

afford to go out and buy brand new. While

it’s been a roller coaster ride with ups,

downs and some hurdles along the way, I

really love it,” says Jason who confesses to

having a feeling of satisfaction now that the

car is finished.

“I’m in no hurry to restore another car

though I won’t rule it out. If I get bored

again, then I’m likely to look for another

project.”

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

SAFE MOTORING IS

A DELIBERATE ACT

driving on country roads is dangerous.

high speed accidents incur a higher

mortality rate and catastrophic injuries

leaving in their aftermath, grief for loved

ones.

“Improving roads, policing and more

sophisticated vehicles have played a small

part in road safety, however the biggest

single cause of road accidents is driver

error” says selwyn district Councillor, Jeff

bland.

The higher number of road deaths ever

recorded was 843 in 1973, a much higher

figure than recent years which suggests that

road initiatives have had some impact and

between 2011 and 2014, there were the least

number of deaths recorded on new Zealand

roads. The lowest was 253 in 2013 and the

highest 308 in 2012. The authorities say

this figure is still too high and most people

would agree.

Injuries caused by road accidents have

been massively higher. In 2014, 11,219

people were injured with a proportion

having lasting effect on individuals and

families, changing their lives forever.

It is true, that the number of cars on the

road has risen and the percentage of road

deaths to cars has declined, dropping from

23.1% in 1986 to 6.5% in 2014. however,

recent figures show that the toll is increasing

again suggesting that road safety messages

are no longer effective.

The road toll has fluctuated over the last

five years but this year’s figures have climbed

with 174 deaths to July 2016, compared to

165 at the same time last year.

Jeff puts this down to a blaze, cavalier

attitude and lack of responsibility or respect

for others on the road.

“during my career in the police, I

attended thousands of road accidents. Most

drivers blamed the vehicle or another driver

and couldn’t see that they may have made a

mistake,” explains Jeff. “People feel insulated

in their cars and don’t think about driving

carefully or to the conditions.”

Part of the problem he says, is a purveying

opinion that we are better drivers yet it

only takes a moment’s inattention or one

foolish act for an accident to occur on the

road. When we put our foot down on the

accelerator we have a lethal weapon under

our control.

“We’re often different people, even

aggressive behind the wheel of a car,” adds

Jeff. “We need to start taking personal

responsibility on the roads and stop making

excuses as to why crashes occur. Road

accidents and deaths affect every person in

this country in one way or other. bringing

the road toll down will benefit us all.”

Safe Driving means:

• driving at a speed suitable for

the road and weather.

• anticipating situations and actions

of other drivers.

• Following at a safe distance – a

2-4 second gap.

• ensuring the road is clear before

overtaking.

• stopping at red lights and stop

signs.

• Turning car lights on when dull

or dark.

• not using a cellphone when

driving.

• observing speed limits and road

signs.

• Recognising that we can make

mistakes on the road

Farmers urged to

stand for elections

With nominations for this year’s local authority elections now open,

Federated Farmers is calling on farmers and other business-minded people

to consider standing for election.

Federated Farmers’ Local

Government spokesperson Katie milne

said it was vitally important that we

get good candidates to put themselves

forward.

“Being a councillor is a challenging role

but farmers can make a real difference

on councils as they can inform and

educate their colleagues and staff about

what happens on-farm. This is crucial for

getting sensible, workable outcomes,” ms

milne said.

The way local government is funded,

through property value based rates, has a

big impact on farms’ financial viability.

“The average farm now pays well over

$10,000 per year in rates, which are often

in the top 10 farm expenses. as a fixed

cost there is no way for farms to cut back,

short of selling up, during downturns like

the current one in the dairy industry,” she

said.

“One of the most important council

functions is to manage natural resources,

including water, land and air. The

development and implementation of

regional plans and policies can and does

have huge impacts on the way farms are

run.

“Farmers are also exposed to other

council regulation like building and dog

control, and bylaws for things like stock

crossings and stock movement across and

along roads.

“Councils also provide infrastructure

and services of value for farmers and

for the rest of the community. roads are

especially important for farms,” she said.

Federated Farmers launched its 2016

Local Government manifesto at the

beginning of July.

“The manifesto is a must read for

anyone thinking of standing for council

and not just for farmers. all aspiring

candidates would do well to read a copy,”

ms milne said.

Nominations for the 2016 local authority

elections opened on Friday, July 15 and

will close at noon on Friday, august 12.

Voting papers will be posted out from

september 16 and they will need to be

returned by noon on saturday, October 8.

SELWYN TIMES

Baby Holden provides a Spark

• By Ross Kiddie

THE UNDER $20,000 segment

of the new car market has shown

some resurgence in recent years.

In recent decades it was an area

where manufacturers didn’t place

a big emphasis on – the margins

were small and finding product

wasn’t always easy.

But being able to buy a new

car at the same price as something

pre-owned certainly has

appeal, and there’s now a wealth

of hatchbacks available here fresh

from Asia – especially China,

Japan and South Korea.

One of the latter is Holden’s

Barina Spark, which has been

quite successful for GM Holden,

with a new-generation model just

landing.

It arrives here in three variants

starting at $16,490 for a manual

LS variant (automatic $17,990),

while an LT model tops out at

$19,990 as tested.

Although the Barina Spark

shares its name, it is engineered

a little differently to Barina; the

Spark gets a 1.4-litre engine and

continuously variable transmission,

as opposed to a 1.6-litre

unit and six-speed auto, and it

sits on a floorpan with wheelbase

and track just a little smaller than

Barina.

Nevertheless, the Spark appeals

in other ways, it is most certainly

designed to capture the imagination

of the young, those buyers

who want something new, as

well as being trendy and funky. It

comes with vivid colour schemes

and an interior package which

is bright and breezy, yet will also

lure those from all generations

who don’t have a big budget. The

test car often captured attention,

and not just from the younger

set.

Standard fitment on the high

grade model is respectable given

its price point. Major items

include single-zone air conditioning,

leather-like trim, keyless

entry and ignition, electric

windows all round, and Holden’s

sophisticated MyLink infotainment

system.

The latter has been upgraded

to include Android Auto and

Apple CarPlay, the latter interacts

with Apple product through a

central dash panel screen. All of

the mobile functions are available

from there along with navigation

and music accessibility.

The Spark is also easy on fuel.

Holden claim an Australian

Design Rules combined average

figure of 5.5-litres per

100km (51mpg). The fuel usage

readout was constantly listing

around 6.2l/00km (46mpg) with

5l/100km (56mpg) available at a

HOLDEN BARINA SPARK: Appealing design.

steady 100km/h cruise (engine

speed 2000rpm).

Powering the Spark is a

brand new, four-cylinder, twincamshaft,

16-valve unit which

displaces 1298cc. Holden claim

power outputs of 73kW and

124Nm, both reaching their maximums

at traditional points of the

rev band, 6200rpm and 4400rpm

respectively.

Consequently, it’s no powerhouse,

and this is reflected

in slowish acceleration times

– 11.2sec to make 100km/h

from a standstill and 7sec to

reach 120km/h from 80km/h.

Realistically, I wouldn’t have

expected anything quicker, the

Spark is not here to scorch along,

but to provide economical and

comfortable travel like small cars

are meant to do.

However, you can stir the

little engine up if you wish, the

seamless gearing of CVT allows

access to the upper rev band

providing the sensation of sporty

motion.

One of the big surprises is the

Spark’s handling and feel from

behind the wheel. A lot of that

has to do with the development

work Holden has done in

Australia for down under conditions.

The steering and suspension

calibration has been tuned

for the type of roads we have

• Price – Holden Barina

Spark, $19,990

• Dimensions – Length,

3595mm; width, 1595mm;

height, 1476mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1399cc, 73kW,

124Nm, continuously

variable automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11.2sec

• Fuel usage – 5.5l/100km

down under, including acceptability

when presented with gravel

surfaces.

When it comes to tackling

corners, the Spark has reasonable

steering accuracy and front

end precision. It must be

mentioned that the front-strut/

rear tube beam suspension

isn’t sophisticated, yet it does a

reasonably good job of soaking

up the uneven road surfaces

and containing body movement

against the force of gravitational

change.

The Spark deserves to do

well here, it’s a tough market

to compete in but it stands out

for its design appeal. It is the

quintessential easy-to-drive, easyto-

park vehicle and comes with

all the benefits of buying new.

Forget all previous pricing. Due to a change in circumstances and with the next

season now approaching faster than anticipated, motivation to sell is at an alltime

high!

If you’re looking for a slice of Canterbury’s history, Taunton Gardens, nestled into

the hills above Governors Bay, is a short drive over the Port Hills to Christchurch,

whilst at the same time feels like another world. Construction of this unique

historic estate began in 1852 and, after careful restoration by a renowned

stone mason in more recent years, Taunton now offers the comforts of modern

living, whilst maintaining its traditional beauty and features.

The estate includes the main house, Jack’s Cottage (a guest cottage) the Garden

Cottage, meeting house/studio and stables, surrounded by lush gardens,

sitting in complete privacy, & secluded from passers-by. A magical setting and

the perfect property

in which to bring up family, accommodate extended family, or run as a luxury

accommodation and/or function facility, Taunton’s grounds include a recently

resurfaced tennis court, complete with a stone pavilion, with separate shower

and toilet facilities, plus kitchen. Picturesque day and night, summer through

spring, the extensive gardens have been cleverly planned

over the past 40 years to provide seasonal splendour.

This offering is your chance of a lifetime to acquire a historic

home in one of New Zealand’s most charismatic, vibrant and

supportive seaside communities.

Our instructions are clear, make no mistake, this property must

now be sold! Contact Mike Goatley for further information on

how this stunning property could be yours. *Lot 1 consists of

2.59ha (approx) inclusive of all buildings.

in the Selwyn District

A SMART APPROACH

TO BUILDING

For those wanting to view house designs that have a floor

space of less than 200 square metres, Milestone’s show home

at Wigram Skies is worth a visit.

9

[Edition datE] 1

The Runway 44 is a 188 square metre

four bedroom home that has all the

basics, from open plan living through to

a standard double garage as well as extras

like an ensuite and walk-in robe in the

main bedroom.

If you enjoy sharing time with your

family, the layout of the living area in The

Runway 44 is ideal. There is a generous

allocation of windows with a slider that

might be located on more than one wall,

providing plenty of opportunity to watch

the children playing outdoors.

Overall, space has been utilised

efficiently in this design. The hot water

cylinder cupboard is centrally sited in

the hallway close to all bedrooms and the

living area. The laundry neatly tucks into

the garage without taking up space. The

entryway which opens onto the living

area has a degree of separation, affording

an element of privacy. There is a good

sized kitchen that forms part of the

living area.

With lots of windows throughout the

home including in the garage, there is

good light. The design is also great for

capitalising on free energy from the

sun with the potential for the plan to be

suitable for sections that have varying

orientations towards north.

There are opportunities too, for

changes to the design such as increasing

the size of the living area by pushing

out a wall or shifting a doorway as with

bedroom four that might become an

ideal study and Milestone see their plans

as a starting point for creating a home

that suits the needs of those who live

there.

This home hints at affordability rather

than displaying it openly yet there is a

feeling of homeliness and comfort while

providing all that is needed in a

modern home.

The house has an attractive street

presence. Its combination of cladding,

Rockcote plaster-finish with Palliside

weatherboard and schist accents and

small hardwood deck at the front door,

harmonise well to create a favourable

impression. The Corona Shake satin

finish roof with a 25 degree slope is

also a contrast to the long-run roofing

iron often seen. All suggest ways to add

a touch of class without blowing the

budget.

There is also plenty of patio area for

outdoor living and opportunity to add

more areas to take account of sun and

wind direction.

Built by Milestone Homes Canterbury,

this is an appealing house that is suitable

for a family, couple without children in

the nest, or person living alone.

If wanting a good sized yet not too

large home, Milestone’s The Runway 44

is worth viewing. As its name suggests,

this show home can be found at 44 The

Runway in Wigram Skies with it open

12-4pm, Thursdays to Sundays.

Incorporating show homes

in your planning process

11

There are many things

to think about when

you’re considering

building a new home.

BROWSIng SHOW homes is a fantastic way

to get you thinking about practicalities, needs,

aesthetics and your wish list! Here are a few

consideration’s to help spark your planning

process.

• What is your exterior style? What kind of

homes do you like? Look around and take a

mental note of what you are drawn to most.

• What kind of exterior materials do you

like? Once you’ve worked out the look you

like, research what materials are available

and find out about durability.

• How will you use your house? It’s important

to most people to have a good indoor/

outdoor flow and attractive, sheltered

outdoor living. Imagine your home in

various seasons.

• Landscaping is important. Look around

and consider what you like and don’t like.

Are you a structured formal garden type or

do you like a contemporary native style?

• Sustainability and future-proofing aren’t

just buzzwords anymore. It’s very important

for your new home to be environmentally

friendly. Research insulation requirements,

solar hot water heating, ventilation options

and new technology to ensure your home

will be affordable to run.

• Interior décor is really exciting. This is

where show homes can really help you get

to know current trends, colours, beautiful

furnishings and furniture. Collect home

magazines and figure out what you’d love

to emulate.

• Also pause to give thought to architectural

components inside. Do you remember a

raised ceiling? What kind of finishing do

top homes use and which styles are you

drawn to?

• Heating is also a consideration. Have a look

at what show homes are offering.

• Kitchens form the heart of the house. Show

homes give you insight into the latest styles,

materials and storage facilities available.

• Bathrooms are another big component.

They need to be as luxurious as you can

make them, so start dreaming.

Energy efficient

PLANNING

By BuILDIng or renovating in smarter

ways, we can reduce water consumption,

keep power bills affordable and preserve

the environment for generations to come.

If you’re thinking of building, site your

house to best utilise the sun.

If you’re considering adding onto your

house, think about the possibilities

of extending on the northern side of

your house, where you can enhance the

usefulness of outdoor living space as well.

All water use has environmental impacts.

Making water conservation decisions

today helps ensure that there will be ample

supplies for the next generation and sets

habits that have good long-term economic

benefits in metered areas.

Old hot water heaters can lose up to 15

per cent of total hot water energy cost, but

you can redress that through wrapping the

cylinder effectively. uninsulated hot water

pipes also rob the water of heat before it

reaches its destination.

Pipe insulation is inexpensive and

effective in keeping water hot all the way

to the tap. An on demand hot water switch

circulates water in the pipes until it is hot,

saving power and water, and increasing

your comfort. Old toilet cisterns are

particularly wasteful of water. Modern ones

use significantly less.

Saving electricity can be as simple as

changing the kind of light bulb you’re

using. Compact fluorescent light bulbs are

more expensive, but they use one quarter

the electricity of an incandescent bulb and

last 10 times as long. Likewise, appliances

have become much more energy efficient.

Look for their energy rating

when buying a new fridge or freezer.

Insulation is an excellent investment all

round, so consider increasing the amount

of insulation throughout the house if

you’re planning to build or while you’re

renovating. It will pay for itself in just a few

years and you’ll be more comfortable.

It’s common sense to take advantage of

the heat from the sun whenever possible.

Passive solar design, orienting windows

to the north with overhangs, is a no-cost

option that can reduce heating costs by 20

to 30 per cent.

Passive cooling uses prevailing breezes,

shading and natural plantings to keep the

home cool all summer long without

air conditioning.

Active solar hot water heating is a

cost-effective alternative to conventional

hot water heating that can pay for itself

in as few as even years. Advances in

technology have improved efficiency and

durability of systems considerably.

A little preliminary thought on how your

new home or addition can improve the way

you live, long term, pays for itself

very quickly.
