LIVING IN Selwyn certainly has

its benefits, but one disadvantage

many would agree on would be the

long commute to town.

Well done then to a group of

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School parents

who have arranged a new bus to

make their kids’ daily commute

that much easier. You can read

about that story on page 11.

As October’s local body elections

draw ever closer, we now have a

clear picture of what the choices

are. On our front page we take a

look at all the candidates, including

a previously unannounced bid

for the mayoralty by an incumbent

district councillor.

Then, over on page 5, find out

how well your fellow Selwyn residents

think the district council has

performed in delivering services

like rubbish collection and road

maintenance over the last year.

Major Sheffield dam

scheme given go ahead

• By Tom Doudney

CENTRAL PLAINS Water has

been given resource consent to

dam up to 2.08 million cubic

metres of water near Sheffield.

Water stored within the dam

will be sourced mainly from

the Kowai River supplemented

with water from the Waimakariri

River.

The proposal, known as the

Sheffield Scheme, would service

an area of about 3500ha.

The dam, which will be on

the corner of Cox’s Rd and State

Highway 73, is part of Stage

2 of the Central Plains Water

(CPW) scheme. It is intended

to improve reliability of the

water supply to customers from

83 per cent to 96 per cent and

reduce distribution costs.

The dammed area will be

around 34ha with a ring embankment

ranging from 3.2m

to 11m in height.

Of 42 submissions received

on the proposal, 34 were in

support, four were opposed and

four were neutral.

The commissioners’ report

noted that the dam would be

located in a seismically active

area with “a large number of

faults identified” and “significant

historic earthquakes.”

They therefore decided to

consider the potential for dam

rupture as part of their decision.

Evidence presented by CPW

indicated that any dam-break

would flood an area of about

2460ha, containing 259 different

land parcels, about

1000m of State Highway 73,

several road bridges and the

Annat substation. However,

evidence also indicated that

the dam would have a very low

probability of failure even in a

substantial earthquake.

One of the opposing submitters

was Ngai Tahu, which

raised concerns about the lack

of a cultural impact assessment

on how the dam and its construction

could affect tangata

whenua values and interests.

CPW cited research which

indicated it was unlikely an

archaeological site would be

found within the footprint of

COMING SOON: A digitally altered photograph, looking

west on State Highway 73, shows a rise in the top left of

the picture where the dam embankment would be. ​

the dam but said it would be

willing to have a cultural monitor

on site for the duration of

the earthworks.

The consent was granted for a

period of 35 years.

The dam is expected to be

completed by September next

year.

commissioners’ decision

consent to the Sheffield

Scheme? Send your

In Brief

BURNHAM PIG FARM

An order for a pig farm near Burnham

to cease operations, after neighbours

complained about noise, dust

and odour, has been withdrawn by

the district council. It was withdrawn

after the owners of the 20ha Thompsons

Rd farm opted to re-enter the

resource consent application process.

The hearing is expected to be held

later this month or early next month.

LIBRARY STRENGTHENING

Earthquake strengthening work

on part of the Darfield Library and

Service Centre will begin on Monday.

The work will be done on the library’s

meeting space, the entrance foyer and

a storage area. The meeting rooms

will be unavailable while the work is

underway, which will take about a

month. The rest of the building will

remain open with access via a ramp

from the side car park.

PREBBLETON TAVERN APPEAL

An appeal by the Prebbleton Tavern

against a Selwyn District Licensing

Committee ruling preventing it from

prices to passers-by will be heard on

Thursday. The case will be heard by

Authority at the Christchurch

District Court. Pub owner Shannon

Gilmore had argued that it wasn’t fair

to limit advertising for its off-licence

when supermarkets and other alcohol

retailers were able to advertise more

Footpath concern Speed past school buses

Rolleston

Residents

Association

chairwoman

Nicole Reid

ARE THERE

footpaths

in Rolleston

that you are

concerned about?

Is there a section or sections

of footpath(s) that you think

should be there but it’s not? Do

you have ideas about where additional

shared pathways and/

or cycleways should go within

Rolleston Township?

We want to hear from you!

The Rolleston Residents Association

has been actively advocating

for safe walking and cycling

routes for Rolleston.

We have consulted with various

groups and the community for

submissions to this year’s Annual

Plan for an increase in the footpath

budget.

For this financial year we are

pleased that the district council

has provided an additional

$400,000, above the proposed

$100,000, to clear a backlog of

footpath projects.

The list of projects was previously

17 years long at the original

budget of $50,000 per year.

We were also concerned

about the lack of connectivity of

footpaths, shared pathways, and

cycleways.

We have made requests to the

district council that their walking

and cycling strategy and

plan, first developed in 2009, be

updated. That plan was mainly

looking at cycling routes between

townships, as opposed to within

townships. It was also done well

before some of the schools were

even thought of.

The district council is now

undertaking consultation with

us for a walking and cycling

network plan to be developed for

Rolleston.

This is a great opportunity for

the community to identify what

you want added to the plan.

Therefore, we would like to

hear from you. The district council

representatives are coming

to our September 26 meeting,

7.30pm at the Rolleston Community

Centre and anyone is welcome

to attend. Alternatively you

could email us with your ideas to

Rolleston.Rai@selwyn.govt.nz

Kirwee resident Marian

Galloway writes on the

speed limit for passing a

school bus

I am not often on the road

when school buses are picking

up or dropping off school

students, but last week I found

myself behind a school bus when

I was driving between Kirwee

and Darfield.

I was well aware that the bus

might be stopping at some stage,

so I was prepared to slow right

down to 20km/h as we are supposed

to do (I generally find that

even if I slam on the anchors

I cannot get down to the right

speed in time).

Sure enough, as I spotted a

boy running down his driveway

ahead, the bus’ rear warning

lights began to flicker, so I immediately

pressed the brake

pedal. I was able to slow gently

and reach the required speed by

the time the bus came to a halt.

The driver of the dark blue

station wagon behind me had

plenty of time to realise that I

was slowing down because of the

school bus. However, he pulled

out to overtake when I was at

around 30km/h, accelerating

rapidly so that he was way faster

than he should have been as he

passed the bus.

SPEED IN FOCUS: A car driving past a school bus on Shands

Rd.

I sympathise with him, but

I think this just illustrates the

unworkability of the 20km/h

law: even if you are not losing

rubber in order to slow down in

time, you are likely to be passed

by another motorist, and in busy

traffic that can lead to confusion

and impatience.

I can see that children at bus

stops in the country need to

be protected, but I suspect that

stopped buses very rarely get

passed by cars going as slowly as

20km/h.

I think a higher limit that everyone

keeps to, along with good

supervision of young children

around bus stops, would be a

more effective safety measure.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

have a view you would like

to share on a local issue?

People rate Selwyn highly

SELWYN RESIDENTS are

very happy with their rubbish

collection services but not so

positive about the state of their

rural roads.

However, Selwyn is a great

place to live according to 94 per

cent of residents who took part

in a recent survey.

The annual district council

satisfaction survey was carried

out by independent research

company Versus.

In this year’s survey, 65

per cent of residents rated

the district council’s overall

performance as good or very

good, up from 60 per cent in

2015.

Overall, 21 of the 26 district

council services surveyed

received ratings of 50 per cent

or higher, with seven rated

above 75 per cent. The highest

rated service was rubbish

collection, with 94 per cent of

residents rating it as good or

very good.

The five services which

received ratings lower than 50

per cent were the land drainage

way. Of these, rural roads

received the worst rating of 39

per cent.

More than half of the services

maintained their satisfaction

rating or recorded an increase

from last year. The single

biggest rise in satisfaction

was for urban roads, which

increased from 49 per cent last

year to 58 per cent.

Community facilities like

libraries, community centres

and parks are well used by

Selwyn residents, with 82 per

cent of residents visiting a park

within the past year, 64 per

cent visiting a library and 63

per cent using a public hall or

recreation centre.

District council acting chief

executive Stephen Hill said

the survey had provided some

positive results and has also

highlighted some areas where

improvement was needed.

“It is particularly pleasing to

see that Selwyn residents rate

their quality of life so highly,”

Mr Hill said.

“The council started

investing around $1

million extra a year on road

maintenance in 2014 which is

one of our largest expenditure

areas.”

Mr Hill said the district

council had also recently

decided to provide extra

funding for footpath extension

work, which was identified as

a lower performing area in the

survey.

demolished in 2012, although

planning for a new facility had

commenced prior to the earthquake.

Building will start later this month

May. The work is taking place either

Couple’s BBC connection

• By Bridget Rutherford

WHEN WAYNE and Lavinia

Cook started their video

production company, they never

expected to get a call from the

BBC.

Now some of their work is

featuring in the BBC’s three-part

series, New Zealand: Earth’s

Mythical Islands, which has just

aired in the United Kingdom.

The couple set up their Rolleston

business, COBi Digital,

five years ago and were recommended

to the BBC.

They helped the British

broadcaster film the series,

which showcases New Zealand’s

wildlife and natural history.

They spent a month last year

filming aerial shots with drones

in five South Island locations.

Mr Cook said they filmed at

the limestone caves near Karamea,

a sheep station in Gore, the

winter muster at Queenstown’s

Mt Nicholas Station, the Queen

Mary 2 cruise ship in Milford

Sound, and the Christ Church

Cathedral.

Originally the producers had

not planned on featuring the

Cathedral in the series, he said.

However, after seeing the work

COBi Digital had done for the

Christchurch Earthquake Recovery

Authority, they decided

to include it.

IN ACTION: Wayne and Lavinia Cook filmed the Christ Church

Cathedral as part of a BBC series. ​

Mr Cook said it was amazing

to work and learn from the BBC

crew.

“They’ve got nothing but ultimate

passion for producing the

ultimate product.”

He said the fact that New Zealand

actor Sam Neill narrates the

series was even more exciting,

and very Kiwi.

Mrs Cook’s background has

always been in video production,

having worked at TV3 for 30

years, before moving to TVNZ.

However, Mr Cook was a

police officer for 10 years before

becoming a senior fire fighter in

Auckland.

“My background is emergency

work, but I look at our work now

and it’s just as random, you don’t

know what you’re going to be

doing,” he said.

He had always been interested

in photography, but when he left

the fire service decided to take it

up full time.

At that stage, Mrs Cook was

made redundant from TVNZ,

and the pair decided to start

COBi Digital together.

They do most of the work

themselves, at times bringing in

a contractor.

Mr Cook, who has his private

pilot license, is also a drone

flight-testing instructor for

Flight Test New Zealand.

Most of COBi Digital’s work is

for Selwyn District Council and

Christchurch and Canterbury

Tourism, but they had done a lot

of work for CERA documenting

the residential red zone.

The three episodes are one and

a half hours long each, and are

expected to air in New Zealand

at the end of the year.

Climbing stairs a way for firefighter

Rolleston Volunteer Fire Brigade senior station officer Steve Trigg will be part

of the Canterbury Stair Climb Team tackling 28 floors of Melbourne’s Crown

Metropol Hotel for charity next month. He spoke to Tom Doudney about which

of the several stair climbs he has done was the most brutal and about the

camaraderie between firefighters from different countries

GOOD CAUSE: Steve Trigg at last year’s Sky Tower Stair

Challenge.

When are you doing the

Melbourne Firefighters Stair

Climb?

September 3

Have you done it before?

It’s my second time.

Have you done any other

similar events?

Yes, I’ve done the Sky Tower,

the World Trade Centre in New

York twice and I’ve done a climb

in Seattle which was the biggest

one. Then I’ve also done a

climb in Las Vegas as well – The

Stratosphere – and the Eureka

Climb in Melbourne.

How does the Melbourne one

rate in comparison to the others

in terms of difficulty?

The Melbourne one is definitely

the easiest one – it’s only a

short 28 storeys. The Auckland

one is 51 and the Seattle one is

65. The New York one is 72, so

that’s a big one as well.

Is this Melbourne one raising

money for anything in particular?

Yes, it’s raising money for a

cancer research centre in Melbourne

(the Murdoch Children’s

Research Institute). The goal is to

raise $343,000 and it’s a memorial

climb as well, showing respect

to the 343 firefighters who died

in the World Trade Centre in

9/11.

It’s very much a sister climb to

the Auckland Sky Tower so all

the ideas and support has come

from the guy who organises the

stair climb in Auckland.

How long have you been

doing these stair climb

events?

My first one was Seattle, 2013.

You’ve done a fair few in that

time then.

Yes, I have. It’s a lot of fun and

very addictive and the people I

have met from all over the world

are just amazing, the people I’ve

met in America and Australia

are just really, really good friends

and that’s what makes it so amazing

really. The guy that organises

the climb in Melbourne (firefighter

Stephen Axup) is a very

good friend, I’m actually going

to stay at his place over there.

He’s a good mate, that’s why I do

that climb. He came here and did

the two Rapaki climbs that we

did here in Christchurch.

What prompted you to do

that first one in 2013?

Rolleston has always had quite

a strong stair climbing fraternity

and it has all been led by a guy

called Phil Glen, a station officer

in the Rolleston brigade, who has

been doing it for seven or eight

years now. That’s how I got into

it. I’ve been using it as an opportunity

to keep fit and have a goal.

You can’t just turn up in stair

climbing, you have got to train

and we get really good support

from the Hub Hornby who allow

us to use their escalator for

training.

How tough was that first one

you did in Seattle?

A shocker – it was horrible! It

was tough but the end of it was

great. It would be the toughest

around, I believe.

to keep fit and strike up friendships

There are bigger climbs like

the Eureka one I’ve done in

Melbourne which is 88 storeys,

so there are bigger climbs, but

they’re not all donned. With the

Eureka climb and the New York

climb you have just got the set

on, you don’t have the mask on

and you’re not breathing the air

supplied by the cylinder on our

back, so you’re not as restricted

whereas the Seattle climb is 65

storeys with a bottle change

halfway up so it’s a really tough

climb and it was my first one so I

went straight to the toughest.

I’m sure it’s not all about the

results but have you ever had a

high placing?

Personally, on a winning

scale, compared to others, no.

I’m not there to win it, I go for

personal bests but we’ve always

been more about just getting out

there and socialising and getting

to know people from other

countries and then they come

here to our climb and help raise

the profile and that’s how we can

raise $1 million for Leukaemia

& Blood Cancer New Zealand,

you see.

Meeting firefighters from all

these different countries must

be cool.

SERIAL STAIR CLIMBER: Steve Trigg has completed multiple charity stair climb events around

the world since his first in 2013.

Oh, it’s the best part. I’ve got

a lot of friends all around the

world through this and there

is quite a big fraternity of guys

that go to the New York and the

American climbs and they will

probably go to Melbourne and

then of course they all come to

Auckland. There are quite a few

people from Australia and New

Zealand and America who are

quite close and we get to stay in

their places when we go to New

York but the camaraderie is huge

– it’s massive.

How long have you been a

firefighter and how long have

you been with the Rolleston

brigade?

I’ve been a firefighter for about

26 years and I’ve been with

Rolleston for about 12 years.

How old are you now?

44

What made you get into firefighting?

Probably from my point of

view, it was sort of in my family.

My father was a firefighter, my

brother was a firefighter and I

work for the Fire Service now as

well.

In 26 years you must have

been to a lot of different jobs.

What ones stand out the most

in your memory?

With Rolleston, it’s the busiest

volunteer station in the country.

We go to a lot of motor vehicle

accidents so that is our biggest

issue really. There is no particular

incident that stands out but

it is unfortunately one of the

busiest stations with MVAs in

the country, so it is tough for that

and we just try and encourage

people to take it easy out there.

What would be the most unusual

incident you’ve attended

with the fire service?

I got called to a kid with his

leg stuck in his sewerage pipe

– I think it was just a curiosity

thing where he got his leg in

but couldn’t get it out. And one

where there was a magpie stuck

in a tree (it’s leg was caught in

some string).

Outside of the fire brigade

what sort of work do you do?

Well for the past six years we

have owned Cafe Izone in the

Izone industrial park.

Outside of the fire brigade

and work what are you main

hobbies and interests?

There is not a lot of time for

much else to be honest. I play a

bit of golf when I can but that’s

about it.

Have you got a wife and kids?

I’m married to Shelly and we

have a daughter at Lincoln High

School.

How did you and Shelly

meet?

She was one of my customers

when I was a sales rep for independent

liquor. She was running

the Russley Hotel.

School bus for Rangi students

RANGI RURU Girls’ School

students from the Selwyn

District and Halswell will be

able to use a new bus service

to get to school.

The initiative came from

parents who were having difficulties

getting their children

to school using the existing

routes in the city.

The bus, which is identifiable

by a Rangi Ruru School

Bus sign, departs Burnham

at 6.35am with five points

from which students can be

picked up and disembark

from in Rolleston, Lincoln

University, Lincoln, Tai Tapu

and Halswell.

It arrives at the school by

8.10am and returns at 4pm for

pick-up and will end the day

in Burnham at 5.20pm.

Principal Sandra Hastie said

the school is very supportive

of effective public transport

and having students on a bus,

using bus lanes and other

priority measures designed for

bus efficiency.

“There’s already too little

time and too much stress

in many lives so if we can

alleviate that for parents and

students, that’s a good thing,”

she said.

Fares are $7.50 return or $4

one way and students use their

Cando card as they would for

any Metro bus. The card can

be topped up with the driver.

Rangi Ruru business manager

Neil Templeton said Red

Bus has been very co-operative

during the development

of the service trial.

“We are open to suggestions

for improvements during the

trial and are encouraging

parents and students to give

us feedback.”

Dr Hastie says the service is

also available to students from

other Christchurch independent

schools and parents should

contact the school to register

their son or daughter.

She adds that although

this a trial, all going well, the

intention is to continue the

service.

SELWYN TIMES

One man and his 1000 dreams

• By Roy Sinclair

NEIL ANDREWS leads the

way down precarious steps to a

seemingly underground room.

He flicks on a light switch.

I am wowed by a high viaduct

spanning a realistic gorge. My

eyes are led to tall forests, tree

ferns galore and a painted backdrop

depicting a stormy sky.

“This is what I do,” he says.

“It is not what I do in my spare

time.

“I mow the lawns in my spare

time.”

The room was purpose-built

for the 9mm (scale 9mm to the

foot) layout representative of a

one-time railway in Northland.

In his garage he is working on

a second, portable, layout. This is

a narrow-gauge railway based on

French townscapes.

Model railways is an interest

he could not be without.

“When I met my partner,

Helen, I told her it is me and my

trains. They are inseparable.

“She accepted that which was

great.”

He describes railway modelling

“as a thousand dreams

held together by a hundred

unfinished jobs. In other words,

a degree of chaos.”

“Part of the fascination is

HAND-MADE: Model builder, Neil Andrews and his miniature creation of early last century

Northland. ​

delving into history to discover

how it all would have looked like

early last century,” Mr Andrews

said.

He always liked to do things

with his hands. He enjoyed art

at school – and building things.

Even when he had clockwork

railways he was always cutting

up cardboard boxes to make

buildings.

He recalls scoring designs on

pieces of wood to make boats.

Railways became another part

of it.

Getting into more serious railway

modelling during the late

1950s, there was not much stuff

available and if it was he didn’t

have the money.

If he wanted it he made it.

“My mother used to take me to

the railway station. I remember

being in my pushchair watching

H90 x W130mm

the Lyttelton trains come and

go.

“Then at primary school I was

quite capable of making an Ecclass

electric locomotive with the

distinctive air compressor tanks

across the front. Everyone could

recognise it.”

Later, any new gadget at his

Canterbury University laboratory

would be first examined to

how it would be useful on the

model railway.

“Then we would work out how

it was intended to be used.”

His workplace became known

as “the model train laboratory.”

That’s what people who visited

talked about.

He travelled to model railroad

conventions in the United States,

becoming a member of the

R.G.S. East Hon3 club.

He visited huge model railway

shows in Cologne and Miniature

Wonderland in Hamburg.

“In Germany a model railway

is like a dishwasher. Everyone

has to have one. And most offerings

are German-made. They are

excellent.

“On one European trip Helen

and I were forced off the road by

Tour de France officials.

“We had to divert into a backwater

countryside.

BUILDING: A train layout under construction and a G-scale

layout at last year’s Christchurch Model Train Show.

“There we found towns of

beautiful buildings with terracotta

roofs. We had discovered

the romance of the French countryside.

“Anything French is different.

If you see a French car you know

it is French because it looks nothing

like anything else. It is the

same with railways.

“Their narrow gauge railways

were basically portable. They

could be picked up and laid

beside a road.

“That really intrigued me. Narrow

gauge secondary lines were

introduced to boost the network

of French railways.’’

The unplanned detour instigated

his French narrow gauge layout.

“One develops a modeller’s

mind.

“A modeller will typically think

how it would look in miniature?”

He talks about Hamburg’s

mind-boggling Miniature Wonderland.

“It’s absolutely intriguing. It’s

a huge collection that is pushing

the boundaries of technology and

inspiring manufacturers to pick

up on it with new products.”

“The model aircraft must

represent the peak of model

building.’’

“The model trains have been

running for so long the track is

wearing out.”

The closest we have in

Christchurch is the annual big

model train Show, this year being

held over the weekend of October

1 and 2.

The venue is Pioneer Stadium

in Lyttelton St, Spreydon. It is the

show’s 25th anniversary so promises

to be special.

Mr Andrews was an instigator

of the event, starting a model

train show at Hagley Community

College and then expanding to

the Horticultural Society hall.

Then, the Christchurch Model

Railway Exhibition Society was

formed and took over. Its growth

took it to Pioneer Stadium where

it has been ever since. At its peak

the show attracted 10,000 people

over the two days.

“It’s about its optimum size.

“Considering our modest

Christchurch population we do a

pretty good job,” he said.

This year’s show will help those

wanting to get into the hobby.

“We will have beginners’ train

sets and heaps of demonstrations.

Find out the best models to buy

and learn how to make things.

“Technology will be to the

fore. This is enhancing the hobby

and drawing younger people in.

They can operate a railway from

a PC or mobile phone, utilising

wi-fi and DCC (digital control

systems).”

He says model railway people

are an enthusiastic bunch. They

will do their utmost to share

what they know.

Andrews will be on the demonstrations

desk. It is likely he will

let slip how to disguise a lot of

money spent on the hobby within

the weekly household bills.

Lincoln looking for place in football final

LINCOLN HIGH School can

book their place in the final of

the Connetics First XI football

competition tomorrow when

they meet Middleton Grange in

the semi-finals at English Park.

The winner will play the

either Cashmere High School or

Burnside High School who meet

in the other semi-final which

follows the Lincoln, Middleton

match. Lincoln had completely

dominated the competition up

until last week.

They went into last Wednesday’s

final round-robin match

against Middleton at English

Park unbeaten and in the possession

of the Connetics Shield,

Canterbury secondary school’s

football equivalent of the Ranfurly

Shield.

With the scores locked at nilall

with less than five minutes

to play Middleton midfielder

Hirokazu Sanada hit the shot of

his life, scoring from just inside

the Lincoln Half to win the game

for Middleton.

“It was unbelievable, he

launched about a 50m bullet,”

said Lincoln manager Richard

James.

The two teams will meet for

the second time in a week, however,

much more is now at stake.

“We’ve got the chance to

rectify last week if we beat Middleton.

We’re also motivated

because if we do that then we can

say we’ve beaten every team in

the competition,” says James.

Although Lincoln were gutted

to lose the Connetics Shield

and finish the round-robin with

a loss to their name, bringing

home the first XI competition

will certainly put that at the back

of their mind.

motorways projects to be built under the Government’s Roads of

National Significance programme.

The Southern Motorway stage two will four-lane State Highway 1,

from just north of Rolleston to near Robinsons Road. From here,

the new section of motorway will be built to the east of SH1 across

Greenfields to connect with stage one at Halswell Junction Road.

This second stage begins in October 2016 and will take three and a

half years to complete.

NZTA has awarded the contract for the second stage of works to

a McConnell Dowell/Downer joint venture. For information on the

project visit: www.nzta.govt.nz/csm2

Around six kilometres of new footpaths will be developed over the next year as a result of the

Council allocating extra funding for footpath extensions.

The Council has previously spent around $50,000 each year to develop new footpaths. In this

year’s Annual Plan, the Council proposed putting more funding into developing footpaths to fill

some missing sections in our footpath network, and add footpaths in some busy areas where they

were needed. Submitters to the plan generally supported this idea, and also put forward ideas

about other footpaths they wanted to see extended.

As a result of submissions, the Council has increased the footpath extension budget to $500,000

this year, with the extra $400,000 met from investment income from Sicon which was higher than

forecast. A list of planned footpath extensions is included below with work expected to start by

summer and be completed next winter.

Not all of the footpath extensions requested by submitters are able to be funded from this year’s

budget. Work that has not been funded this year will be considered for inclusion in next year’s

Annual Plan work programme.

In addition to our footpath extension budget the Council also has a budget of $330,000 for

resealing and maintaining existing footpaths.

Pay my rates

from home?

There are a number of ways you can pay your rates

from home.

The first option is to pay through internet banking. The

Council’s bank account is 03-1587-0050000-00 and

you need to list your valuation number (see information

below) in the reference field along with your initials and

surname in the particulars field. If you have more than

one rates invoice you need to set up a separate bill

payment for each bill.

You can also set up regular weekly, fortnightly, monthly

or quarterly automatic rates payments using the Rates

Easypay system. To set up a payment you need your

property valuation number and bank account number.

Your valuation number can be found on a rates invoice

(this was posted or emailed to property owners in early

August) and you can also find this online at www.selwyn.

govt.nz/propertysearch by entering your address. Then

visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/rateseasypay and complete the

online form – it takes less than two minutes to do this.

Once the form is received we will process the request

and send you confirmation of the amount to be debited

regularly and the payment start date.

Rates payments can also be made by cheque via post

or at Darfield, Leeston and Lincoln Libraries or the

Council’s Rolleston Headquarters by cash, EFTPOS,

credit card or cheque.

By now you should have received your rates invoice this

quarter. The next rates instalment is due 2 September. If

you haven’t received your invoice, please phone 347 2800

or email rates@selwyn.govt.nz. If you have moved, don’t

forget to give us your new address and phone number.

The average household spends around $57 per week

on Selwyn District Council rates, which is similar to the

amount Canterbury households spend on power or

insurance each week. For your rates the Council provides

a wide range of services including roads, footpaths, parks,

libraries, civil defence and rural fire services, rubbish

and recycling, water and wastewater, community halls,

swimming pools, local events and lots more.

Library strengthening planned

Earthquake strengthening work at Darfield Library and Service Centre

will start from Monday 22 August and will take around one month.

The work means that the building’s meeting rooms will be

temporarily unavailable. The building will remain open during the

work with normal hours however access will be via a ramp from

the side carpark. Library users will need to park at the front of the

building (two mobility car parks will also operate near the ramp).

The after-hours return box will be accessible while work occurs.

The repairs are to be made to the oldest part of the building which

is used as meeting space, a foyer and storage area. A detailed

engineering assessment of the building was undertaken which

recommended that strengthening take place but that until the work

occurred there was no reason for the building to be closed to the

public on safety grounds. The rest of the building which includes the

book display and public areas was built in stages in 1983 and 2010

and the assessment found these areas do not require strengthening.

Youth camps coming up

Two exciting opportunities for young people are now open

for applications. The Selwyn Youth Council is hosting a Youth

Leadership weekend for 20 young people aged 13-15 at Wainui

Camp on Banks Peninsula on the weekend of 24 and 25 September.

The weekend is a chance to get to know other young people,

develop new skills, be empowered to make positive changes in

society and be mentored by young leaders. The camp is free with

transport from Rolleston provided. It is funded from a Ministry of

Youth Development grant. Applications for the camp are open until

Friday 2 September – for information visit www.selwyn.govt.nz.

Young people aged 15-19 can also apply to join a Youth in

Emergency Services camp happening from 26-30 September at

Waipara Adventure Centre. The camp is a combined initiative by

the Waimakariri, Hurunui and Selwyn Youth Councils. Emergency

Services including the NZ Fire Service, Red Cross, NZ Police,

Coastguard, St John and Land Search and Rescue will attend the

camp. Camp participants will have the chance to find out more

about their work, learn new skills including hands on activities,

and meet new friends. Following the camp, young people also

spend three months volunteering with the emergency service of

their choice. The volunteering is after hours for a few hours per

week. Applications for the camp close Friday 26 August – see

hurunuiyouth.co.nz/yes for more information.

On the roads this week

Repairs to the Waimakariri Gorge Road Bridge are planned with stop and go traffic controls operating.

RED CROSS

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

Award-winning chef soaks up pressure

Chillingworth Road chef

and National Commis Chef

of the Year – Blake Haines

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE PRESSURE was on

as Blake Haines set out his

equipment and ingredients,

preparing to battle some of the

top young chefs in the country

for the National Commis Chef of

the Year title.

That was when he got that

sinking feeling: He was missing

a crucial ingredient.

In the rush to catch his

flight to Auckland at 5am that

morning, he had left his salt

sitting on the bench at home.

The chefs competing

had to bring all their own

equipment and ingredients

to the competition from their

seasonings to their pots and

pans – which made for some

funny looks when going through

bag checks at the airport, he

said.

It was too late to buy any more,

so he just had to work with what

he had.

But he went on to win gold

for his main, an Akaroa salmon

duo, half pan-fried and half

wrapped in nori seaweed and

cooked in plenty of chicken

SATISFIED: Blake Haines beat the odds to win a gold medal at a national title.

stock to make up for the missing

seasoning.

Winning a national title was

incredibly satisfying, he said.

He had dreamed of becoming

a chef since he was about eightyears-old,

cooking meals for

his family – then things like

spaghetti bolognese or chocolate

chip biscuits, he said.

“My family were good critics,

although my mum never

appreciated the mess in the

kitchen,” he said.

At about 14 he got an afterschool

job washing dishes for a

local restaurant, and from there

he was hooked, he said.

He worked for a while in

Dunedin and at the Hermitage

Hotel at Mt Cook, before

moving to Christchurch with his

girlfriend early this year.

He knew Chillingworth

Road owner and chef Darren

Wright through his work on the

Culinary Olympics NZ squad,

and said he wanted the chance to

work with him.

His main role at the restaurant

was as pastry chef which, he

said, was something he had

always enjoyed.

“For customers, the first thing

they try is the bread and the last

is the dessert, so it either ruins

or makes someone’s evening.

Hopefully they are the two

things they remember most,” he

said.

After seeing Blake’s work in

the competitions, Olympic squad

member and Christchurch chef

Mark Sycamore asked him to

travel to Greece with him in

September this year to compete

at the WACS WorldChefs

Congress as his commis chef.

But, although he hoped

cheffing could open doors for

more travelling in the future, he

said he always planned to return

to New Zealand.

“We both love Christchurch

and there’s lots going on, so

many new restaurants opening

and places to dine, so there are

so many opportunities here.”

SELWYN TIMES

Add colour with chrysanthemums

• By Tod Palenski

NOT ALL flowers are created

equal. Some don’t like to be

picked. Some don’t flower easily

or for a couple of seasons.

Some require lots of ongoing

maintenance.

Fortunately, chrysanthemums

are not like some flowers. They

are easy to grow and their flowers

are long-lasting.

If you like to have colour

in the garden and flowers

in your home, stop buying

flowers and grow your own

chrysanthemums. There are three

varieties of chrysanthemum I

like. One is merry mix, which is

also known as love daisy, it grows

to a height of 50cm and produces

single flowers in a lovely

combination of tri-coloured

blooms.

The other two varieties are

snowland and moonlight which

will grow to a height of 20cm and

are good for growing in cooler

climates.

Snowland produces single

flowers with white petals and

a striking yellow centre, and

moonlight produces all over

yellow single flowers.

Chrysanthemums like welldrained

and dry soil with

plenty of lime. This means

they grow well with plants like

roses, lavender, bedded irises

and gypsophila as they all like

the same conditions. If you’re

planting tomatoes in a month or

two and want to add some colour

around them you could try

planting chrysanthemums there

too as, again, tomatoes like the

same growing conditions.

Chrysanthemums will grow

well out in the open but they

also like to be planted next to the

house as the soil there typically

has quite a lot of lime from the

foundations of the house.

Another place these colourful

flowers grow well is hanging

baskets. Try planting our

snowland or moonlight varieties

in the middle of a basket and

VIBRANT:

Snowland

(left) and

moonlight

are popular

choices.

then strawberries around the

outside. The strawberries will

hang over the side for easy

picking.

When you’ve got your

seedlings, dig in some compost

or organic matter to the soil first.

This will provide the plants with

some food to keep them going.

Then plant each one about 20cm

apart from the next. Plant merry

mix chrysanthemums a little

further apart at 30cm.

Because they like it quite dry,

they don’t need much watering.

In fact, if they’re watered too

much they become susceptible

to getting rust. Pick off the dead

heads to encourage more flower

growth.

And enjoy your colourful

garden and home.

Seed Potatoes

in store now!

If you are wanting freshly dug potatoes come December, now is the time to start sprouting seed

potatoes ready to plant out in September. Spread the potatoes out in a dry area to allow the sprout

to develop 1-2cm in length. Once they have reached this length, follow the steps below to plant out

in September when the soil temperature has risen a bit more.

Planting seed potatoes

3 Create a trough roughly 15 centimetres in depth and add

Intelligro’s specially formulated Potato Fertiliser at a rate

of 200g per square metre. Mix into the soil. Fill the trough

with the fertilised soil back to 10 centimetres high.

3 Place the seed potatoes 25 centimetres apart in a row

with the sprouts pointing upwards before gently

covering with the remaining soil.

3 Continue to mound the soil around the potato

plant as it grows to around 5 to 10 centimetres

high, as this will protect the potatoes from

greening

and insect damage.

3 Side dress crop with the Potato Fertiliser every 3 to 4

weeks at a rate of 30-40 grams per square metre. Give a

good water after application.

3 Once harvested store in a cool dark place to

retain their freshness. Enjoy with family and

Fashion

Costume designer set to wow

• By Annabelle Dick

A STAMP shop worker will have

her creations thrusted into the

limelight after being selected to

show at the World of Wearable

Art Awards.

The garment Filigreen,

designed by Cushla O’Connell,

39, has been selected for

the Weta Workshop costume

and film section of the show.

“It’s pretty exciting. It’s my

second year. I had a costume on

stage last year, but it’s

still really exciting

to have it on display

to so many people,”

Miss O’Connell (left)

said.

The garments have been kept

strictly under wraps until the

show in Wellington on September

22.

But she said her garment is

pretty extreme and designed to

have an impact.

“We’re under hush, hush, but

I was inspired by the silhouette

they were wearing in the baroque

era. It’s not close fitting

– it has volume so it’ll have presence

on stage from afar.”

She used upholstery fabric for

the one-colour costume and a

flexible wire called fish tape to

create the shape.

EXPRESS YOURSELF: Stamp shop worker Cushla O’Connell works to create wearable creations.

“The construction was full on.

I had to do a lot of construction

before I could move onto the

decorative layer,” Miss O’Connell

said.

This is the second time she’s

been chosen for the WOW show

after her garment was selected

in 2015.

“Last year, I used leather to

create my first garment.

I dabble in all sorts of crafts and

arts. I’m all over the

place – I’m not happy just creating

one type of work,” she said.

The St Albans woman studied

fine arts at Canterbury University

and considers herself more

of a creators than a designer.

“I’m not so much into fashion

but creating. I work at a rubber

stamp shop.”

Miss O’Connell works at

Rubber Stamps by Montarga

where she crafts stamps, creating

images and taking classes.

“It’s nice to have a job that’s

creative.”

Designers were handpicked

from all over to world to make

up the final 133 garments that

will show.

Miss O’Connell is one of five

Christchurch people chosen to

show at this year’s WOW awards.

“Being up against the rest of the

world in a show that keeps growing

each year is scary,” she said.

“I’m just happy to have my

work on stage – you don’t get the

opportunity to show in front of

such renowned people often.”

The competition runs from

September 22 to October 9.

Driven

Tackle the skifield road in an Alltrack

• By Ross Kiddie

STAR MEDIA, the company

which I am employed by,

embraces advertising creativity.

We strive for layout and design

which captures reader and viewer

interest. That being the case, I

was mystified when Volkswagen

New Zealand’s recent television

advertising campaign was

withdrawn when some viewers

complained to the Broadcasting

Standards Authority.

The commercial surrounded

Volkswagen’s Passat Alltrack, and

was a light-hearted take involving

a person falling over backwards

on a slippery boat launching

ramp. That ad often had me

smiling when I was preparing

dinner and watching the news. I

was disappointed – world gone

mad – I thought.

That aside, the Alltrack is an

interesting variation on the popular

mid-size wagon and as its

name suggests it has four-wheeldrive

and suspension raised

27mm from the standard Passat.

Volkswagen is no stranger to

this concept, they have long had

models which have just that little

bit extra in terms of ability. The

Alltrack is a cross between an

everyday vehicle and one which

will take you off-road, not so

much in the serious stuff, but it

will get you out of a sticky, low

grip situation, hence the advertisement.

And on that subject, it

also gets a 2.2-tonne tow rating,

so hauling that large boat is a

real probability.

Under the bonnet sits a 2-litre,

turbocharged diesel engine. The

four-cylinder, twin camshaft unit

is rated with 150kW and 400Nm,

the latter punching out its power

all of the way from 1900rpm

to 3300rpm; consequently, it is

a strong, energetic unit which

works through a dual clutch,

direct shift gearbox.

The six-speeder allows the

engine to work freely, between

the two, drive is unimpeded,

the mid-range diesel surge is

evident. Unladen, the Passat

Alltrack will scamper to

100km/h from a standstill in

8sec, and will launch to 120km/h

from 80km/h in 5sec, the turbo

boost offering vivid acceleration.

And that is the beauty with

the big four-cylinder diesels,

there is a lot of grunt on offer,

and it’s no wonder Volkswagen

are confident of high tow

capacity.

Perhaps the most exciting figures

are those of its fuel usage.

Volkswagen claim a 5.2-litre per

100km/h (54mpg) combined

cycle average, that sits well with

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT ALLTRACK: Grip for slippery surfaces.

the 6.6l/100km (43mpg) figure

showing constantly on the dash

panel readout. At 100km/h the

engine sips fuel at the rate of an

amazing 4l/100km (70mpg) with

the engine turning over slowly at

just 1700rpm.

These results are extraordinary

for a big vehicle and certainly

serve to prove how effective diesel

engine manufacturers have

become in terms of efficiency.

I took the test car on the twists

and turns of the Port Hills. It

was only a few weeks ago that I

evaluated the standard Passat,

and was keen to find out if the

extra ride height affected the

Alltrack’s handling ability. I can

report there’s is little noticeable

difference, grip is well promoted

through Continental sport tyres

(245/45 x 18in), while steerage

and body balance are accurate

and controlled respectively.

Of course the suspension

is fully independent and

there is a lot of travel within

those elements; that being the

case, bumps and ruts are well

absorbed and ride comfort has

been given high priority.

I didn’t take the Alltrack offroad

as such, but I did take it

through a short cross-country

track in an endeavour to get

some photos. The suspension

absorbs the uneven surfaces

beautifully, and wheel-to-ground

contact is manufactured so that

• Price – VW Passat Alltrack,

$57,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4777mm; width, 1832mm;

height, 1506mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1968cc, 140kW, 400Nm,

six-speed automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8sec

• Fuel usage – 5.2l/100km

utmost traction is gleaned.

I can see the Alltrack being

used as winter sport recreational

transport such as tackling the

skifield access road. It’s a vehicle

that does all the things a typical

sport utility vehicle is capable of,

yet it is packaged in a more traditional

style.

The entire in-cabin area is

manufactured for comfort and is

decked out with all the features

you’d expect from a $57,990 car.

I’ve long embraced the

traditional station wagon,

especially those from Europe.

The Alltrack takes that concept

one step forward and I’m pleased

CREATING A CHECKLIST WHEN

PLANNING TO BUILD

When building a new home, a budget blow-out can occur

with far more spent than was originally intended.

Exciting new features, fashionable

design trends and having bigger and

better can all be reasons for this, as

can, not determining the true cost

before embarking on the building

project or making changes during the

build.

To help avoid this, carry out some

exploratory research before deciding

on a house design. Visit kitchen and

other outlets to get ideas of building

products available, as well as a

selection of show homes that appeal,

collecting concept plans of interest.

Next draw up a checklist with three

headings: Constraints, Must Haves,

and Desirable Features.

Under constraints, start with a

minimum and maximum budget

figure. This should include the cost

of fences, driveways, paths, and

landscaping.

Compile a list of ‘must haves’

considering each requirement and

whether it is something that is

absolutely essential or just desirable.

An example is a separate laundry. A

compromise might be locating this in

the garage. Another consideration is

the size and positioning of windows.

If you love the sun streaming in,

larger windows might be opted for.

The question is: What do you really

need? A ‘must have’ might be a

smaller easy care section or having

sufficient space to park a caravan

or work vehicle. Inside, it might be

having an office to work from home,

or separating bedrooms and living

space so a shift worker can sleep

during the day.

The ‘desirable features’ list is likely to

be the longest. It might have elements

such as a higher stud (ceiling), larger

doors, cedar panelling, butler’s pantry,

free-standing bath, bi-fold doors, a

covered outdoor entertaining area

with fire or pizza oven, and more

storage space. Unless the budget is

extremely tight, you should be able to

incorporate some ‘desirable features’

into the final design though possibly

not all.

Once your checklist is drawn up, look

again at the concept layouts collected

from show homes visited. Select those

that fit your requirements and will

suit the building site you have chosen

then go out and look at the show

homes once more, taking the checklist

with you.

As you walk through each house,

make comparisons with your

checklist. Weigh up whether any

‘must haves’ might be relegated to the

‘desirable features’ column and vice

versa. Collect extra concept designs

that you like and that might work for

you.

When you have a firm idea of the

size and features for your new home,

talk to the designers who might work

independently or for a particular

building company. Listen to their

suggestions but be firm about what

you can or cannot afford. Ask the

designer to visit your building site so

the home can be positioned to make

the best of the elements then before

finalising the plan, get a firm price or

quotes from a builder.

homes for Cantabrians for

Five tips for renovators

13

Building or renovating a home to

take you through the generations

can be challenging. Before you

start, here are five things you

should think about:

1. Creating flexible living spaces.

How will your family’s use of living

spaces change over the coming

years? Are the living spaces big

enough to cater to an older or

extended family?

2. Slashing your energy bills.

With energy costs on the rise,

thinking about sustainable design

minimises the impact on the

environment and your monthly

power bill.

3. Creating outdoor living spaces.

People renovating often add a lower

level or build on top. Both options

allow you to create a linkage to

an outdoor setting which can be

designed as an extra “living room”.

Ensure the landscape design is

linked in with the overall design for

the renovation.

4. Future-proofing for new technologies.

You can future proof your home by

designing in smart cabling systems

that act as conduits for future

technologies such as internet over

the TV.

5. Family considerations.

Think about extending bedrooms

and having living spaces for study.

Also, factor in bedroom size:

children might be happy in single

beds when they are young, but

there will come a time when they

want a double bed and extra space

that goes with it.

Making the most of

show home viewing

Looking through show homes is a great way to get ideas for features and

fittings to put into a new home. it can also be helpful for getting a spatial feel

for other aspects of a house design.

Before heading out for a day’s

viewing, conduct an internet search.

identify the locations of show home

villages and the types and sizes of the

various building company’s homes on

display, noting down the square metre size

of each home.

if wanting a high end, architectural

design, focus on the larger homes that

have desirable design features. if at the

entry or middle level of the market,

earmark homes that fit this taking in other

show homes for extra ideas.

allow sufficient time when visiting each

show home, asking for a floor plan that has

room sizes before walking through.

Check also the floor to ceiling height

of the rooms and consider how this feels

and whether you prefer a cosier feel with

the standard ceiling eight of 2.4 metres or

more spaciousness created with a higher

stud or exposed ceiling beams.

if doors and windows are taller than

normal, weigh their effect in creating a

more luxurious and spacious feel, against

potential inconvenience for small children,

cleaning and maintenance.

on entering each room, take account of

how much furniture is in each room and

whether there is sufficient space for the

furniture you will have in the room and

the size needed in a walk-in robe. Look

too, at storage capacity throughout the

home and whether this is adequate.

in the living areas, consider whether a

lounge separated from the family living

room or a true open plan kitchen, dining,

living/lounge area is preferable, and

compare internal kitchens with those that

have natural light.

Look too at the layout of the kitchen:

whether to have an island sink or breakfast

bar where a newspaper can be read, and

children can sit and draw or complete

homework; the positioning of appliances;

and how important having a pantry is.

for the little rooms, equate space

and features desired with that needed,

especially if the budget needs to be sharp.

it might be nice to have a large walk-in

shower with double shower heads but is

this just fanciful and will the extra cleaning

annoy you long term. a laundry in the

garage is also more economical though a

separate laundry may be handier.

Bring the garage size into the equation

also. as these vary considerably, assess

the actual measurements of each garage

viewed comparing this with the space

needed for your motor vehicles and other

items to be stored there. if a good number

of toys will be housed there, it may be

sensible to increase the size of this area of

the home.

By imagining what you need, want and

will have in your new home, you will be in

a better position to confidently choose a

design that works for you.
