Concern over 90-minute wait

for ambulance at sports game

• By Tom Doudney

CONCERNS HAVE been

raised after an ambulance took

90 minutes to arrive at a rugby

game in Tai Tapu on Saturday

where a player had suffered a

neck injury.

Lock Josh McDermott, 16,

was playing for the Waihora under-18

side against Lincoln when

he suffered what was later found

to be a serious neck sprain with

torn ligaments.

The injury happened when

he was in a maul and the game

was stopped before being moved

to another field for the final

minutes.

Josh’s father Maurice Mc-

Dermott said he was concerned

about how long it had taken an

ambulance to get there, although

he was also grateful to the St

John staff who had done a good

job at treating his son when they

did arrive.

Maurice McDermott said:

“There is an ambulance based

at Rolleston. Why did we have

to wait for an ambulance from

town, rather than one from

Rolleston?”

St John district operations

manager Canterbury Dion Rosario

said all available ambulances,

including the Rolleston one, were

dealing with other emergency incidents

when Josh McDermott’s

injury occurred.

“His injury was classified as

non-life threatening. As soon as

an ambulance became available

it was dispatched to attend this

incident,” Mr Rosario said.

Maurice McDermott said

the length of time would be a

concern for any sporting event in

Ellesmere.

“If someone gets injured at

Southbridge, how long will it

take to get an ambulance?

“He was lying on the ground

and he didn’t get hypothermic

but whether it was the cold or

the shock he was feeling, he was

certainly going a purple colour

when the ambulance arrived.”

Waihora under-18 coach Derek

Smith said while he had confidence

in the abilities of a trained

physio who happened to be spectating

and performed first aid, it

had been a long time to wait.

Josh McDermott had been

able to move his feet and hands,

indicating his neck was probably

not broken, but there was some

concern about his weak strength

of grip.

Last-ditch effort to keep

car parks on Gerald St

• By Caitlin Miles

LINCOLN BUSINESS owners

have rallied together in a last

attempt to stop car parks being

removed from the main street.

Business owners on Gerald St

have presented a petition to the

district council to overturn the

decision.

Under the The Lincoln Town

Centre plan, cycleways on either

side of Gerald St will see the loss

of 75 car parks along it.

The district council plans

to put in parking precincts to

compensate for the loss of parks.

It recently purchased a site at 16

William St, near the intersection

with Gerald St. The site will provide

parking for 40 vehicles.

House of Allure owner Lee

Parker said the business owners

were worried about losing customers

because of less parking.

“We set up the petition

because we are concerned that

removing parks will put pressure

on the existing ones. People

don’t want to park ages away

and have to walk. We could lose

business if they are taken away,”

Mrs Parker said.

Car parks will be removed

from outside The Famous

Grouse Hotel down to the Lincoln

Library and Coffee Culture.

Hammer Hardware co-owner

Carol Townsend said they were

not against cycling.

“No one is opposing the cycleway,

we are opposing having

parks removed for it. It would

make sense for the cycleways

to go around the back of the

town to join up with the existing

Prebbleton. Why does it need to

be down the main street?,” said

Mrs Townsend.

District councillor Malcom

Lyall said it was a little

disappointing that the petition

was not set up when submissions

on the town centre plan were

called for.

could voice their concerns and

thoughts through the consultation.

It’s a shame this has come

out after that time,” Cr Lyall said.

The group posted the petition

to the district council on Friday

and are waiting on a response.

Cr Lyall said that he had not

seen the petition or what the

group was suggesting but he is

willing to listen and see what the

alternative options are.

Wait for

at sports

game

•From page 1

After calling 111, Mr Smith

was told by the operator that

they couldn’t say how long it

would take the ambulance to

arrive and to call back if things

got any worse.

“After a while, he felt like

he was getting a little bit of

tingling and so the first aiders

rang and started to really put

pressure on and say ‘things are

getting a little bit worse, can

we please hurry up’,” Mr Smith

said.

When Josh McDermott

started shaking, they became

concerned that he was getting

cold from lying on the ground

and covered him with clothes

and blankets.

Mr Smith said the length of

time it had taken the ambulance

to arrive was not ideal

but appreciated that St John

had limited resources.

Mr Rosario said St John was

initiating a first response unit

into Rolleston which would be

an additional resource for the

growing community.

ews

ashion

AS AT the 2013 census there

were 7080 people aged 65

and over living in the Selwyn

electorate.

This represents 12 per cent of

our population and is slightly less

than the New Zealand average

of 14.3 per cent of the total

population who were aged 65

Gardening

and over March 2013.

However, we know that our

population is ageing so it will be

interesting to see if this statistic

changes considerably when the

next census is held in March

2018.

The Government recognises

the important contribution our

older generation has made and

otoring

continues make our communities.

In return, the Government

is committed to supporting

our older citizens and assisting

them to have easy access to the

public services that they need.

Recent claims that the Super-

Gold card is being phased out

are incorrect. In fact, this year’s

asty Bites

Budget 2016 included an additional

$41 million of operating

funding for the scheme over the

next four years.

The Government is committed

to ensuring SuperGold card

holders continue to enjoy free

off-peak public transport. Recent

changes to how the scheme is

funded will not change these

oney

entitlements.

Over the past few years, costs

of maintaining the scheme have

increased rapidly due to a rise

in the number of people who

qualify for the scheme, increased

use of the card, and increases in

public transport fares. Consequently,

the Government took

Selwyn MP

Supporting our

senior citizens

the opportunity to wrap funding

of the SuperGold scheme into

recent changes to public transport

funding, to get better value

for money for public transport

services as well as the SuperGold

card scheme.

However, there is no change

whatsoever to the entitlements

that our seniors have. The new

funding model means better

value for money, not a reduction

in services. Cardholders can continue

to catch public transport at

no cost during off-peak hours.

There has also been some

concern around the switch to

smart cards in some areas such

as Auckland. Again, there is

no reduction in the services to

which cardholders are entitled.

It is about improving services

for those using multiple forms of

transport in one trip, as well as

making collecting data easier.

The Government will work

closely with other councils wanting

to adopt similar technology

to make the transition for Super-

Gold users as easy as possible,

and ensure they are fully informed

if changes are occurring

in their region.

The SuperGold card is just part

the Government’s package of

support for older New Zealanders.

We have increased funding

for health to a record $16.1 billion.

Superannuation has gone

up 34 per cent since 2008, and

more businesses than ever are

part of the w scheme.

The broad range of

initiatives under way show this

Government remains committed

to promoting the interests and

welfare of our seniors.

Rolleston resident L Dunlop

writes in response to a

recent article in the Selwyn

Times which highlighted

concerns about speeding

near West Rolleston

Primary School.

I was glad to see an article in

relation to road safety near West

Rolleston Primary School.

I have seen a few people

speeding past mainly in the

morning between 8.45 and 9am.

A few have been trade vehicles.

Not all of them have been parents

either as they go zooming past.

I have a few issues with the

roading in general around the

school.

Firstly, as you come off State

Highway 1 and turn into Dunns

Crossing Rd there is no turning

bay for cars to pull over out of

the way of traffic heading south.

As you turn into Dunns

Crossing Rd it’s a 70km/h speed

limit (ridiculous). This should

be a 50km/h speed zone as there

are more houses being built and

the likelihood of more children

being present.

Looking back

TAKE CARE: Waiting at Dunns Crossing Rd to get to across to

West Rolleston Primary School.

The signage is piddly. I know

there is a flashing sign which is

still very small in comparison

to the large 40km/h signs that

are outside Rolleston Christian

School. All schools in Rolleston

should have these.

Why is it that West Rolleston

Primary School has been open

since February, we are nearly

in August and they still do not

have a pedestrian crossing for the

children?

The stop signs – what stop

signs you might ask? I have seen

several people roll over these like

they are non-existent. Parents or

not.

It’s only going to get busier as

the school grows and the new

pre-school opens.

Why are the local government

and the Ministry of Education

being so slack? What does it

take? A child to get hit by a car?

Then someone will do something.

Surely our children’s safety

should be paramount.

Rolly mums and daughters

to teach netball in Samoa

A GROUP of Rolleston mothers

and daughters will teach

children in Samoa to play netball

and donate sports uniforms.

A group of 16 mothers and

their daughters aged between

13-15 are heading to Samoa for

13 days as part of the iNSPIRE

programme, which stands for

Netball South Pacific Island

Rolleston Experience.

During their time in the

country the girls will work with

Netball Samoa.

The programme was started

by the Rolleston Netball Golden

Oldies team when they went

on a tournament trip to Fiji

and thought it would be a good

experience for their daughters.

Rolleston Netball Golden

Oldies member Leanne Brown

said the trip would be “a bit of

an eye opener” for some of the

girls.

Mrs Brown spent several years

living in Samoa and her father

is still there. Part of the trip will

involve spending some time at

her father’s house and getting to

learn Samoan customs.

“It’s a completely different way

Brown.

of life and culture over there,

it might be a bit surprising to

some,” Mrs Brown said.

For the last 18 months the

team has been fundraising the

$41,070 needed for the trip.

They’ve managed to raise more

than $20,000 so far with more

fundraising events planned.

“The girls have organised all

the fundraising events and doing

the hard work, we have been in

the background of course, but

it’s really been up to them,” she

said.

The Rolleston Netball Club

has donated some uniforms for

the trip and the girls have been

collecting stationary to take over

and give to the students as well.

They plan to head to Samoa on

September 23.

Way off Broadway

brings out talent

SHOWBIZ Christchurch held

its popular Way Off Broadway

show earlier this month.

Daniel Mathers (right), 16,

of Rolleston was one of the

performers who took part in the

show.

The bi-monthly concert is an

open-mic night for performers,

held at the NASDA studios at

the Ara Institute of Canterbury

based in the central city.

For each performance, nine

singers individually took to the

stage to sing musical theatre accompanied

by the piano.

The singers were accompanied

by pianist Sam Jury (below).

The recent performance

included songs from wellknown

musicals including

My Fair Lady, Les Miserables,

Dreamgirls, Jekyll and Hyde

and Willy Wonka. There will be

two more Way Off Broadway

performances this year with a

duet evening on September 9

and further solo performances

on December 11. The

performances are unauditioned.

Out Of Hand

Ben Reid’s primary interest for his printmaking is NZ’s

environment and the impact of humans on our precious land.

His work often depicts tales of loss of habitat, extinction of

species and introduced and exotic predators.

The print work produced in 2016 is a continuation of themes

of NZ’s preservation. Narratives within each work consider

isolation, regret, time passing, acknowledgement of our history,

where we live and what NZ is, and what it means to us, also

about hope and optimism, and accepting and learning from our

mistakes, past and present.

As told by Warren Feeney, “Reid’s delicate, elegantly structured

and at times gently humorous prints are here to remind us of

what is at stake: the unselfconscious grace and beauty of New

Zealand’s indigenous birds and the way they enrich our world”.

Marahau wood carving artist Tim Wraight describes works for

this exhibition come from 2 streams.

“Firstly there are 2 carved cubes of Totara wood in which I

explore the laying of pattern onto a strong form, with a

whimsical approach combining dancing figures and a quite

formal pattern.

The other group of works; old hand tools refashioned for

‘ritual’ purposes, with new carved handles and decorations of

feathers, fibre and found objects, give reference and reverence

to rural traditions and pre mass production industry, and the

people who powered these tools with their physical selves. As

a hand tool user I am aware of the intimate relationship with

the material that the user obtains and indeed needs in order

to succeed in their work. Sound, sight, touch, force and a feel

for the interaction between material and tool all come into play.

I am drawn to the beauty of hand forged steel, and learnt from

my grandfather how to use and maintain these simple but

efficient objects.”

Selwyn Auto

Keep your family safe on the roads this winter

When driving conditions take a turn for the worse,

peace of mind comes in knowing your vehicle is

operating at its optimum to keep you safe.

To ensure you know that your vehicle is going to

perform when you need it most, make sure you have

your vehicle regularly serviced and maintained.

At Jones Rd and Selwyn Auto, mechanics offer a

comprehensive range of services including WOFs,

all repairs and servicing, tyres, wheel alignment,

batteries, parts and accessories as well as auto

electrical repairs. They also have auto diagnostic code

readers for those times when your car is alerting you

to a problem you may not be aware of.

Both businesses are proudly owned by Lisa and Nigel

Fleck, local Rolleston residents who insist on integrity

and commitment to top service and quality repairs.

This care and attention to detail means no matter

how big or small the job is, all staff will carry out

repairs or servicing with care, ensuring your safety

when you get back on the road.

Selwyn Auto is run by workshop manager and local

Matt with Jones Rd Auto under the watchful eye

of Nigel. Both have extensive experience as well

as a keen attention to detail. Mechanics at both

businesses are highly skilled and rigorous in making

sure all maintenance and repairs are carried out to

an exceptional standard. Both workshops are MTA

(Motor Trade Association) which gives customers

peace of mind about the quality of workmanship

and also provides a warranty on all work.

“We’re continually focusing on improving and

upskilling. We regurlarly send our staff on

training courses to keep up to date with the latest

technologies. We’re always trying to improve and

reinvest in our tools and equipment,” Lisa says.

Lisa and Charittee take care of the administration

side of the businesses – making sure both garages

tick along smoothly and customers are kept up to

date at all times so there are no awful surprises when

they come to collect their vehicles.

Lisa says the bonus of having two businesses gives

far more capacity for being able to meet the needs

of their faithful and new clients. In fact business has

grown so much they now employ 14 local staff across

both businesses.

If you want to make sure you and your family will

be safe on the roads this winter, then book in your

vehicle for a full service at Jones Rd or Selwyn Auto

Selwyn Auto & Jones Rd Auto are open:

Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm.

Jones Rd Auto is also open:

Saturday from 8am to 12pm

for WOFs only.

Producing ACHIEVERS results at rescue challenge SCHOOL

ACHIEVERS

• By Caitlin Miles

A ROLLESTON Volunteer

Fire Brigade team finished

fourth overall in a recent road

rescue competition.

The team competed at the

Australasian Rescue Challenge

competition held in Warragul,

Victoria. They finished third

in the entrapped challenge and

placed SPORTS fourth overall.

The brigade won the New

Zealand National Road Rescue

Challenge two months ago

which allowed them to take

part in the Australasian

challenge.

THE TEAM: Marty Tier, Ben Bishop, John Trounson, Rob

spent several hours a week

practising.

PREBBLETON designer’s

beer-inspired creation

a West Coast wearable arts

competition.

Shelley Bakker and her

model Carmen Lintsen, of

Tai Tapu, recently entered

the Earthworks of Creations

Wearable Art charity

fundraiser for Homebuilders

West Coast Trust, held in

Westport.

There was a record 60 entries

in the overall competition,

up 20 from the previous

one. Mrs Bakker’s entry,

Maltilda Fuggle, placed second

out of 19 entries in the

senior wearable art category.

The event is held every

two years. The garments

were judged on creativity,

the quality of workmanship

and construction, the design

and use of elements and

techniques.

Mrs Bakker, who has a

passion for art, recycling

and recreating, said Maltilda

SCHOOL

They have a good

cutting different areas of the

car up.

“Practice has been pretty

full on in the lead-up, Pick-A-

Part are great at helping us,

giving us cars to cut up,” said

Mr Trounson.

The competition involved

removing and treating patients

involved in simulated vehicle

incidents. They are scored on

their techniques, time and how

they deal with patients.

The challenge also provides

a chance to learn more about

how to deal with different

types of road incidents.

“It was really great to

learn different skills, that’s

something we enjoy a lot

because we can then use those

in the community,” he said.

Fuggle’s creation was based

on “the basic natural ingredients

of hops, barley and old

SPORTS

fashioned charm.”

The garment had originally

been designed for a previous

beer festival in Rolleston.

Mrs Bakker said the other

designs she had seen at the

Westport competition were

of a high standard and she

was chuffed that hers had

done so well.

“Some of the garments

were so amazing, I didn’t

“She’s never short of company.”

Jeanette and her family were so pleased when they discovered Summerset serviced apartments.

After looking at options, a serviced apartment meant that Dorrie could continue to live

independently, with help at hand.

There’s always people close by and Dorrie is enjoying the new friendships she has formed

at Summerset.

“The other residents and staff are wonderful” says Dorrie.

Have a Go Day

coming to Selwyn

Selwyn residents will be able to try out over 20 different sport and recreation activities for free at a

Have a Go Day.

This family friendly event is hosted by Selwyn District Council and local sport, recreation

and community groups and is happening on Sunday 14 August from 12-3pm at Rolleston

Community Centre.

This is Selwyn’s second Have a Go Day - the first event was held in June 2015 at Lincoln Event

Centre and attracted over 2,000 people. 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. Other activities at the day are: archery, basketball, rugby league, hula hoops,

inflatable golf, pedalmania fun bikes, skateboarding, softball, table tennis and tennis. You can also

join in on a spin, yoga or zumba class for free.

Children aged 7 and over and adults can take part in the Have a Go day activities. There will also

be bouncy castles and rumpus room fun gym activities for younger children, as well as live music,

a sausage sizzle and coffee. Rolleston Library will be providing activities for children such as

Beebots and Scratch, as well as demonstrating free resources for adults such as Zinio electronic

magazines, Ancestry.com and a new database, Lynda.com. This is an online service which offers

access to thousands of different training courses.

Have a Go Day Passports are available at Selwyn Libraries, the Lincoln Event Centre, Rolleston

Community Centre, Council offices in Rolleston or at the event. People who get five stamps on

their passport by completing five different activity challenges will enter the prize draw for a $250

or $100 Rebel Sport voucher. If wet, the Have a Go Day will be rescheduled to Sunday 21 August

at the Rolleston Community Centre.

Local pound now operating

Local dogs who go missing have a clean, comfortable local pound to use while they wait for their

owners to collect them.

A new dog pound has been built by the Council

and is located just outside Rolleston. The pound

can accommodate up to 20 dogs and has separate

facilities for each dog as well as a dog exercise area.

Previously, pound facilities for Selwyn dogs were

provided by a private contractor.

Senior Animal Control Officer Steve Clarke says that

the new pound facility will be more convenient for

dog owners to use as Council staff can arrange for

animals to be collected at times that suit owners.

“The new facility could also be used as an animal

welfare shelter in an emergency like an earthquake.

Selwyn hasn’t had a suitable facility until now that

could serve this purpose,” he says.

One of the first dogs to use the new facilities was a

husky - Alaskan malamute cross called Ryda who

was found in Izone. He was soon reunited with his

Rolleston owners who were pleased to see him again.

Last year 109 Selwyn dogs were picked up by the

Council’s animal control team. Anyone who needs

to report a missing dog should phone the Council

on 347 2800 or 318 8338. The animal control team

operates 24/7 responding to requests. Appointments

to visit the pound to collect an animal need to be

booked by phoning the Council.

There are also three impoundment facilities for

wandering stock at Lincoln, Leeston and Hororata.

These will continue to operate.

On the roads this week

Roundabout changes affecting Goulds Road

Following the completion of the Broadlands Drive extension and the

installation of a new roundabout at its intersection with Springston

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

Street roundabout is now closed to traffic. 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. Access to the west end

of Goulds Road is now via 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.

Other works

Repair and resealing work will take place on sections of footpath with

faults on Monet Vale, Rolleston Drive and Dryden Avenue. Gravelling

and reshaping work will occur on Steeles Road with traffic controls

in place. Edge break repairs will occur on Wards Road, with the road

remaining open. Culvert extensions will occur on both Boundary Road

and Ellesmere Junction Road, with the roads remaining open.

Rural New Zealand tomorrow night.

Scotty’s back on Rural NZ

HE’S BACK! Scotty Bamford returns to

the screen tomorrow night on CTV, in an

all new season of Rural New Zealand.

Mr Bamford will return to the screen

after a near-fatal truck crash over the

Christmas period last year.

The Rural New Zealand team have been

hard at work following the end of season

two, earlier this year with filming for

season three beginning in July.

“We’ve had some absolutely cracking

days filming over the winter, the weather

has really played ball. We’ve been travelling

Fashion Quarterly

from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda

Special Occasion This Summer?

Summer stock is arriving into stores so

now is the time to shop for your new

dress. A common mistake is to wait

until the weather is warm but this can

lead to disappointment so now is

the time to act and ensure you

get the pick of the exciting

new arrivals before sizes and

popular styles disappear.

Lace is once again a

beautiful fashion trend in

special occasion dresses.

We have pictured the

stunning cobalt Pink Ruby

lace dress ($259) which is all

about the amazing colour

and flattering fit.

We have photographed the

Pink Ruby checked dress

($249) with Pink Ruby checked

blazer ($199). This striking outfit

is ideal for weddings or races

and can be accessorized with

bright colours to add that pop of

colour if desired.

We have also showcased the

Pink Ruby Helena dress ($239)

which will be extra popular

because it has a sleeve so

doesn’t necessarily require a

jacket. This stunning cobalt

and white combination is

fresh and striking and would

be ideal for a multitude

of events in your Summer

calendar.

Another classically beautiful

Pink Ruby dress is the

Midsummer night dress in navy

($259) which looks amazing

as a stand alone dress or

could easily SCHOOL

be teamed

up with with a jacket in

any number of colours to

complete a unique look.

A skirt and top is another

option for a special

occasion outfit and is

versatile in that both

pieces can be worn with other items to

create a different look.

We have teamed up the Pink Ruby assymetric

skirt ($159) with the beautiful Pink Ruby

butterfly top ($159). This pretty and feminine

combination could also be finished with a

crop jacket if desired.

As always there is plenty of variety on offer

and all of the items pictured are now in

stock at Viva la Moda so come on

SELWYN TIMES

Gardening

Time to dethatch your lawn

EARLY AUGUST is the time

to attack the thatch on your

lawns.

Thatch is caused by several

factors, including grass

type, excessive watering, soil

compaction, high or low soil

pH,or overuse of fertiliser and

pesticides.

Remove a core of soil from

the lawn with a trowel or

shovel and measure the depth

of the thatch, which is the

layer of dead grass above the

soil line.

A layer that’s 1cm to 2.5cm

thick can be removed with a

stiff lawn rake. Deeper layers

may require a power rake.

The best time to de-thatch is

just before the grass begins a

period of active growth, which

is usually early spring.

For lawns with more than

an 3cm of thatch, power rakes

or vertical mowers will need

to be used and can be hired.

Mow the lawn a little lower

than usual. If needed, water it

to moisten the soil.

If you use a thatching rake,

pull the blade-like tines across

the lawn, cutting through the

thatch. Work in sections, then

remove the debris.

If you re using a power rake

or vertical mower, adjust the

cutters to slice just through

the thatch layer. Check cutter

depth after the first metre.

Run the machine in parallel

rows over the lawn and then

again at 90 deg to the first

pass. Remove debris with a

lawn rake.

Over-seed with a goodquality

grass seed to improve

the lawn’s health, vigour, and

appearance.

Other tips for early August

EDIBLES

• Dig over vacant areas and

leave for frosts to pulverise the

lumps.

• Apply lime to vegetable garden

plots where green crops

were dug to increase worm

activity.

• Spread a general fertiliser

on areas to be planted next

month.

• Check peach, apricot and

nectarine buds frequently.

Spray with copper before bud

burst to protect against curly

leaf. Same spray for bladder

plum.

• In warm areas begin sowing

in a protected position lettuces,

peas, silver beet and spinach.

• Sow outdoors hardy herbs,

tender herbs under glass.

• In warm areas or towards the

end of the month sow under

glass courgettes, eggplants,

peppers and tomatoes.

• Plant out asparagus, globe

artichokes, cabbage, cauliflower,

lettuce, onions and silver

beet.

• Divide and replant rhubarb.

• Fertilise citrus generously

towards the end of the month.

ORNAMENTAL

• Plant deciduous trees, shrubs.

• Complete pruning of roses

and cutting back of all perennials.

• Complete mulching garden

beds.

GENERAL

• Slugs and snails abound,

spread slug bait

• Ensure all-seasons oil and

copper sprays have been

applied to all fruit trees and

roses.

HEALTHY: Produce the

perfect lawn, dethatch it

in early August.

GARDEN CLUBS

Join a garden club! I wish I’d done this 30 years ago. It would have saved me a lot of

time, effort and money! Garden club members cross many age ranges, they all garden

in different circumstances, and they have specialist knowledge about their own areas of

gardening interest.

ALSTROMERIA

I wish I had learnt earlier that you should pick alstromeria from the base of the plants.

It would have saved me having to cut off the dead stalks later.

WEED MATTING

I thought all weed matting was beneficial but it’s not. The thick, canvas type starves the

soil of nutrients and air. My next project is to remove a large area of this in order to

develop a soil medium in which plants will grow and thrive.

Alstromeria

Alstromeria flowers bloom during late

spring or early summer and prefer

full sun and well-drained soils. When

planting, incorporate compost and wellrotted

animal manure into the soil. Old

flower stems should be snipped off at the

base. In early spring, mulch around, but

not over, the plants.

Note: not all alstromeria are created equal.

In fact, some are considered pest plants.

Always source your plants from a reputable

supplier.

From: Kathleen and

Linda, Rangiora

INVASIVE!

Never plant horseradish – ever! Just buy it in those little

pots from the supermarket. And think twice before

propagating something found growing in the wild – it is

likely to take over your garden.

WHOOPS!

Ask a more experienced gardener before you try growing

freesias from a cutting!

Horseradish

Horseradish is an easy-to-grow,

deeply rooted herb, well noted

for its tendency to become

invasive. When dug, its crisp

taproot breaks and any fragment

left in the soil soon develops

into an individual plant. Grow

horseradish in its own individual

container and stand the pot on

an inorganic surface, such as

concrete, so the roots do not find

their way into the garden.

Creating restaurants post-quake

Ever wondered who is cooking your food when you go

out to a café or restaurant? The Star continues its series

this week with Dux head chef Tristan Anderson

• By Gabrielle Stuart

WHEN TRISTAN Anderson

says he has worked to create

three restaurants from scratch

since the earthquake, you can

take it literally.

When the Dux team were

working to open Dux Live in

2011 they pitched in to do whatever

they could, whether that

meant picking up a paint brush

or learning to use a concrete

grinder.

That teamwork was something

he had always loved about the

kitchen, he said.

“It feels like a sport when

you’re doing service, making

sure you’re manning your section.

It’s physically and mentally

demanding but very rewarding.”

He now works between Dux

Dine in Riccarton and Dux Central,

managing 22 chefs as well as

cooks and kitchen-hands.

He started at Dux de Lux in

2002, after several years at Blue

Jean Cuisine restaurants in

Sydenham and on Manchester

St.

From there he landed a role

working as a chef in Melbourne.

But when in 2010 he was offered

a job back at Dux as sous

chef, he jumped at the chance to

return.

Although he enjoyed the work

in Melbourne, he said many

chefs there were just “going

through the motions”, and he

wanted to be part of building

something bigger.

The role at Dux gave him a

chance to learn more about

management, and after the

earthquake he had to put that

knowledge straight into action as

they worked to open Dux Live in

2011, Dux Dine in 2012 and Dux

Central last year.

Although management was

a big part of his work, he still

stayed in the thick of the action

in the kitchen.

“I definitely try to create

an environment in both my

kitchens that I want to be in. I

lead, but I make sure these guys

are all on a level where they are

learning together.”

Personally, he said there was

still a lot he was learning.

He said Dux owner Richard

Sinke was very well travelled and

knowledgeable when it came

to food, so developing menus

which could impress him was its

own challenge.

He was recently named a

finalist in the chef category of

the Christchurch Hospitality

Awards, alongside Harlequin

Public House owner Jonny

Schwass and Giulio Sturla of

Lyttleton’s Roots Restaurant.

He said it was an honour to be

named alongside the two, who

were both chefs he would “take

my hat off to”.

Although cheffing had its ups

and downs, he was still passionate

about food and loved what he did.

Even after work, he said he

Motoring

BMW has combination of power and efficiency

• By Ross Kiddie

IT’S A phone call I’ve received

a couple of times in the past.

The invitation goes something

like this: “Would you like to fly

to Queenstown and drive a new

BMW back to Christchurch?’’

Of course, it’s an offer I’ve

been only too willing to accept,

especially considering that drive

is one of the best in New Zealand,

and the car in this instance was

my favourite out of the BMW

stable – the 330i.

It was in April when I evaluated

the 320i, a 3-Series car which

has effectively the same engine,

but with lesser power outputs,

the 330i is rated with 185kW

and 350Nm against 135kW and

270Nm. Of course, there’s also a

four-cylinder diesel model in the

line-up.

The 3-Series in total is a true

sports sedan range and I’m really

smitten with the concept, the 330i

has road feel, power and handling

that makes you feel so much part

of the car.

And if you take into account it

has economy almost unrealistic

for a performance car, the

combination is simply amazing.

On my long highway journey

and cruising at a steady 100km/h,

the instantaneous fuel usage figure

was constantly hovering around

four-litres per 100km (70mpg),

that sits well with BMW’s

combined cycle average claim of

BMW 330i: Touring car of true genius.

just 5.8l/100km (49mpg).

These figures could suggest

unremarkable performance, but

the opposite applies, the 330i is

the powerhouse of the 3-Series

line-up, it will scamper to

100km/h in 5.8sec and will make

an 80km/h to 120km/h overtaking

time of 4sec. And I made many

overtakes on my journey, the 330i

is a touring car of true genius.

But it is also the docile sedan for

when the driving environment is a

lot more sedate, I had the test car

for a week at home and used it for

inner-city travel, especially to and

from the hospital during the time

my wife was having surgery.

The 330i is involving to drive

at all times, as a driver you feel

tightly connected to it. The

3-Series isn’t, big but it does

translate its compact proportions

into a user-friendly environment,

and that is something BMW does

well, not only is it desirable, as

a sports machine it relishes the

everyday role.

To reinforce that, the 330i has

compliant suspension, it soaks up

the big hits from Christchurch’s

roads, but it also has the firming

needed to control body balance

tightly when fired into a series of

tight corners.

Of course, the 3-Series has a

• Price – BMW 330i,

$88,000

• Dimensions –

Length, 4633mm;

width, 1811mm;

height, 1429mm

• Configuration: Fourcylinder,

rear-wheeldrive,

1988cc, 185kW,

350Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 5.8sec

• Fuel usage–

5.8l/100km

host of wheel and tyre options

but the test car was sitting on

aggressive, 19in Bridgestone

Potenza rubber. I leaned the

evaluation car heavily into

several tight and twisty sections

and can conclusively say grip is

phenomenal, the quality of the

fully independent suspension

lends itself to sporty driving, and

if you take into account the feel

you get from rear-wheel-drive,

then being part of a car such

as this is almost the ultimate

pleasure.

At the other end, sitting

longitudinally, is a turbocharged,

four-cylinder engine. The twincamshaft

unit works through an

eight-speed automatic gearbox. It

has a paddle-shift mechanism if

you want to take control over the

gearshift process. There are also

sport, normal and eco pro driving

modes that the driver can use so

that the car can adapt to varying

driving conditions.

I used sport mode a lot when

passing opportunities arrived, and

normal mode when long straights

called for the use of cruise control.

With the decisive torque boost

that turbocharging provides,

the 330i is a swift mover under

acceleration, it will pull from

anywhere in the rev band. At

city speeds the engine will often

hover at around 1000rpm, yet it

will unleash and rev freely if the

throttle is given a nudge.

The 330i lands here at $88,000,

it’s a premium price but you do

get a lot of car for the money.

Column space doesn’t allow

for comprehensive detailing of

specification items but to say it

has a lot of kit and can be specced

to personal satisfaction.

However, the factor that means

the most to me is the engineering

prowess that BMW builds into

its motor vehicles, the chassis

design and construction create a

sublime driving experience while

the engine is a true delight with its

surge and keen throttle response.

As much as I enjoyed the drive

back to Christchurch and, as

much as I lust after the 330i, I’d

still be happy with its sibling – the

320i. It doesn’t miss out on much,

and a potential buyer could end

up with a $16,000 saving.

encouraged to have a smoke alarm in each

bedroom as well as one in an open plan

living area, or one in each living room

space.”

My Property Works ltd can check a

rental property to ensure it is compliant

with the law and fit long-life photoelectric

smoke alarms which have a ten year life.

In relation to insulation, landlords have

three years in which to install insulation

both in the ceiling and under the floor of a

rental home, if sufficient space allows this

to be done.

landlords must also include details

about ceiling, wall and underfloor

insulation in any tenancy agreement with

the information being lodged with the

tenancy services.

While the Ministry of Business,

Innovation and employment is responsible

for overseeing this law, tenants can take

any concerns about smoke alarms or

insulation to the tenancy tribunal without

retribution.

to assist land owners in ensuring that

their rental properties are compliant,

My Property Works ltd can check rental

properties and install long life smoke

alarms where required. They will also

document details in relation to smoke

alarms and insulation and send this

through to tenancy services, something

that is a legal requirement with bond

forms when a new tenancy begins.

Benchmark Homes’ latest show home is testament to

the new direction being forged by the company, says its

Director Richard Evans. For a solid six months Richard

and his team of innovative designers have been working

hard to create a new portfolio of 30 concept plans that

focus on functionality and form.

“During this intensive design period we really challenged

ourselves by asking how we could do things better in a

cost effective way. The Lincoln show home illustrates a

distinctive new style that characterises our ethos which

prizes high functionality and unique design above all

else.”

Due to the popularity of their Prestons show home they

adapted the executive style home to accommodate a

family lifestyle. “By retaining its elegant contemporary

style throughout and the U shaped living area that

proved to be the home’s key selling point we’ve received

overwhelmingly positive feedback that aligns perfectly

with today’s design savvy consumers.”

With a firm focus on strong design and high functionality,

the Lincoln show home uses natural products like

marble and cedar, as well as on-trend painted brick,

which provides a unique architectural aspect. Richard

explains that its architecturally driven design is evident in

standout features like the magnificent vaulted ceilings,

which elevates the living area to majestic heights.

Energy efficiency is a key component of all Benchmark

Homes. Using natural timbers like cedar from a local,

sustainable supply, integrating LED lighting, skylights

that add warmth and light, clever window placement that

maximise all day sun, and a substantially thicker floor

underlay, all work together to create modern homes that

are both sustainable and economical to run.

Quality control and attention to the finer details is what

sets Benchmark Homes apart. Since the quakes

insurers’ demands on building codes and compliance

has helped raised the bar on quality. Producing ‘zero

defect homes’ now provides consumers with a higher

guarantee on the finish of their build.

“The expectation clients have for a new build that’s free of

imperfections is becoming more and more achievable.

Our project managers take great pride in the work we

do and ensure clients are given ample opportunity to

assess the quality of the finished product, giving clients

the utmost confidence.”

While Benchmark Homes has a range of concept plans

on offer, these are designed as a starting point for clients

and bespoke designs that begin with a client’s brief

enable complete creative control with no limitations.

When it comes to home security,

mosthome owners focus on

alarms, lights andgates to

protect themselves and their

property. Although these are important, there

are also ways of designing your property so

it enjoys “passive security”, something that is

achieved by having a property that is open to

the street so neighbours and passersby can

see if there’s anything untoward going on.

Having minimal fences or ones that can be

seen through and keeping the plantings at a

low level means there’s nowhere for a burglar

to hide.

Some people also plant prickly bushes

around the perimeter of their properties to

put intruders off.

Making it difficult to gain access to the side

or rear of your property should also help to

dissuade burglars. In this regard, lockable

gates are a good idea, especially on driveways,

as there’s nothing easier for a burglar than to

park their car down your driveway out of

sight and quickly load up all your goods.

The key to good home security is making

it difficult for burglars to gain access and to

try to force them to work where they can be

seen. That means having and using a good

alarm system, outdoor sensor lighting and

solid locks.

Your burglar alarm should have as many

sensors as you Passive security can afford,

they should be well positioned so intruders

can’t sneak past without triggering them.

Having an alarm that is monitored or one

that rings your mobile when triggered might

increase the odds of capturing a burglar in

the act.

If you’re building new or doing a major

renovation, this is always a good time to have

hardwired smoke detectors fitted so that they

are connected to your electricity and alarm

system.

These should provide better reliability and

effectiveness than battery-powered detectors.

When it comes to planning exterior

lighting, the minimum you should have is

sensors and lights over exterior doors. The

more sensors and lights you have, the fewer

places there are for burglars to hide.

If you want to go hi-tech, set up webcams

within your home on which to capture

intruders.
