Big rock concert

comes to district

10,000 could be at

family-friendly event

• By Tom Doudney

NEW ZEALAND rock royalty

Mi-Sex and Dragon are set to

headline a concert in Lincoln in

March which could pull in up to

10,000 people.

The line up for the Live in

Lincoln Selwyn Sounds concert

at Lincoln Domain will also

feature the Jordan Luck Band,

Sharon O’Neill, Annie Crummer,

Margaret Urlich, Debbie

Harwood and former Opshop

frontman Jason Kerrison, as well

as other local bands, including

from Lincoln High School. And

it’s hoped the event will not be

just a one off.

Local events company 3 Coins

Gentlemen, which is staging

it with sponsorship from the

Flemington subdivision, aims to

hold the concert in Lincoln on

an annual basis.

Event organiser David Parlane

said he was pleased to have assembled

such an outstanding

line up for the first event.

“We all remember what we

were doing when these artists

first came into the music scene in

New Zealand, and to have them

perform all these years later with

new material as well as old is an

honour for the town,” he said.

“We were just getting sick and

tired of all of the big things that

were happening in [Christchurch]

and we’re only 22km away

with some great facilities so

we just thought ‘why not?’” Mr

Parlane said.

Mi-Sex, best known for their

1979 single Computer Games,

recently reformed and are about

to release their new album Not

From Here.

A ROADING upgrade which

has been labelled a “game

changer” by Selwyn’s deputy

mayor is back on track after

long-running land negotiations

were completed.

Work on the roads around

the intersections of State Highway

1, Barters Rd, Pound Rd

and Waterloo Rd in Templeton

was initially planned to start

in October last year. However,

this was delayed after negotiations

between the New Zealand

Transport Agency and the

owners of land it needed to buy

took longer than expected.

NZTA highway manager

September 5 for publication the

following week.

From September 16 voting

documents will be sent out

in the mail to elect district

councillors, the mayor,

community board members

and one regional councillor.

Colin Knaggs said work was

now expected to start either

late next month or in October

and be completed by before

Christmas 2017.

“We are working

through a tendering

process and will announce

the contractor

in coming weeks,” Mr

Knaggs said.

Key features of the

upgrade will include a

realignment of Pound

Rd and Waterloo

Rd and extending Pound Rd

through to State Highway 1

where a traffic light controlled

intersection will be installed.

Road change back on track

Deputy mayor Sarah Walters

(below), who chairs the district

council’s road safety committee,

said the upgrade would

be “a game changer”

in terms of getting

traffic off Jones Rd and

Maddisons Rd which

authorities consider

less suitable for heavy

traffic volumes than

State Highway 1.

“I see this as a really

important safety improvement

for traffic

travelling south,” Mrs Walters


“At the moment there is no

safe place to turn right onto

State Highway 1 from the north

other than Hornby/Halswell

Junction Rd until you get to

Hoskyns Rd at Rolleston,

which is a busy intersection.”

Mrs Walters said it was

hoped the new intersection at

Pound Rd and State Highway

1 would reduce the amount of

traffic movements on Jones Rd

and Maddisons Rd, or at least

reduce the growth in traffic


“State Highway 1 is the main

traffic route and is designed to

carry much higher volumes of

traffic better and more safely

than either Jones or Maddisons

Rds,” Mrs Walters said.

Proposals to

restore church

• By Tom Doudney


Trust has submitted two

proposals on how it could help

with the restoration of St John’s

Anglican Church.

Hororata Community Trust

chairman Richard Lang said the

trust had put detailed written

proposals to the Church Property


The historic church was

damaged in the September 2010


The community trust saw its

role as fundraising and helping

to set the specifications of the

repair, in consultation with the


“Rebuilding the church has

always been at the top of our

agenda,” Mr Lang said.

“There is wide community

support to see this building reinstated

to its former glory. To

this end, we have been working

with the Anglican Church since

the earthquakes and have been

in direct discussions with the

Church Property Trustees since

late 2014.”

Residents face costly battle

• By Tom Doudney

LEADLEYS RD residents are

facing a costly bill to oppose the

presence of a company which

has been operating a contractor’s

yard without resource consent

for several years.

Paul’s Excavation Services

acquired the 4ha property at 304

Leadleys Rd south of Prebbleton

in 2012. It has been using it to

store about 10 trucks as well as

several diggers, other machinery

and piled soil.

Four nearby property owners

are concerned about noise, dust

and traffic movements.

One of those residents, Phil

Colegate, said he first approached

the district council in May 2014

about whether the business

should have to obtain resource


However, it had been “dragging

its heels” in addressing

the matter until this month

when it notified residents that

a commissioners’ hearing on

the company’s resource consent

application would take place on

September 13.

The district council also

advised that if residents wanted

to oppose the application, they

should hire planning, health and

safety, environmental and legal

H90 x W130mm

experts which it estimated would

cost them about $40,000.

“I thought I was being a responsible

ratepayer in reporting

this business and two-and-a-half

years down the road. I am disappointed

to find myself in the

position of facing the choice of

appointing professional experts

to defend my rural lifestyle, a

duty I entrusted to Selwyn District

Council,” Mr Colegate said.

Paul’s Excavation Services

owner Steve Paul said the business’s

use of the site was “very

low key” and he hadn’t initially

been aware that resource consent

was needed.

He said he was disappointed

that residents had gone to the

district council without talking

to him first.

“We are approachable people,

if anybody wanted to come down

and say to us: ‘You are making

too much noise’ first tell us what

the noise is and then we could,

with no problem at all, try and

contain the noise. But we don’t

really make noise, all we do is

park up there, start up in the

morning and go.”

Mr Paul said he had no plans

to expand operations on the site.




Residents of

Leadleys Rd, near

Prebbleton, are

unhappy about

the presence of

this contracting

yard, which

Paul’s Excavation

Services has been

operating without

resource consent.



The Selwyn Times asked the

district council why it had allowed

the company to operate

for so long without resource

consent. In response, acting chief

executive Stephen Hill said a

thorough investigation had to

be undertaken and evidence of

a District Plan breach proven

before enforcement action could

be taken.

“This can be a lengthy process,”

Mr Hill said.

He also said the company had

been slow in providing information

requested by the district

Gang targeted burglar’s home

• By Tom Doudney


raided serial burglar Luke Reich’s

home looking for stolen firearms

while he was on remand in jail.

But police had got there first,

finding about 15 shotguns and

rifles – some hidden in an

electric piano – in the Burnham


Constable Chris Caldwell said

it was a relief that the weapons

had ended up in police hands,

rather than the alternative.

“We all know that firearms get

stolen occasionally and we hope

they don’t end up in the hands of

gangs and the like, but we know

some of them probably do,” he


“To be able to retrieve those

ones before possible gang members

got hold of them is good for

the safety of everyone, including


Yesterday, Reich, 21, was sentenced

to two years, nine months

imprisonment and ordered to

pay $10,268 in reparations for

26 burglaries, 10 thefts and six

charges of unlawfully interfering

with cars.

He stole numerous firearms

during his crime spree which

took place, mostly in Selwyn, between

November and February.

about the stolen firearms, which

they believed were still in the

Burnham house, from prison

intelligence while Reich was in


Guns can sell for hundreds of

dollars on Christchurch’s black

market and have become an

item of choice for burglars who

are targeting homes where they

know there are firearms.

Police say the illicit drug trade

is fuelling the need for criminals

to arm themselves and gangs are

key players. They are also being

used in armed robberies.

There has been a spate of

armed hold-ups in recent weeks

in Christchurch at bakeries, bars

and fast food outlets.

At last week’s sentencing in the

district court, it was revealed that

Reich deliberately avoided taking

children’s Christmas presents

during his pre-Christmas burglaries.

Judge David Saunders said he

accepted that Reich was remorseful

for what he had done and that

he appeared to have a conscience.

He also noted that Reich’s

employment issues and drug and

alcohol problems had been factors

in his offending.

In not setting a longer prison

sentence he had taken into account

Reich’s lack of previous

offending, his remorse and his

potential to make reparations to

his victims.

Defence counsel Phillip Allan

said Reich would sell his motorcycle

to put towards reparations

and, upon release, would live

with his parents while working to

pay off the rest of the money.

“He wants to put things right,”

Mr Allan said.

Judge Saunders recommended

that Reich be assessed for a

drug and alcohol treatment programme.

Reich was caught on February

13 by Weedons Rd resident Chris

Flanagan who disturbed him in

his garage early in the morning

and tackled him as he tried to

Plant plan change mooted

• By Tom Doudney

A PROPOSED plan change

would enable Fonterra to expand

its Darfield site without going

through the normal resource

consent process.

Instead the dairy giant would

gain full approval to expand the

plant within defined limits without

applying for consent for each

individual upgrade or addition to

its existing facilities.

The dairy giant has requested a

change to the District Plan which

would see its 131ha site officially

defined as a dairy processing

management area.

A similar plan change was approved

last year for Synlait’s Dunsandel

site and Fonterra was heavily

involved with that process.

A total of 12 resource

consents have been lodged and

granted for the Darfield site since

it was established in December


Fonterra’s plans for the site

include increasing the number of

boilers from two to four, the number

of dryers from two to four and

staff numbers from 235 to 435,

while extending a rail siding.

The expansion would be expected

to generate more vehicle movements

– a situation-which would

be managed within an imposed

limit of up to 170 vehicles exiting

EXPANSION: A plan change for Fonterra’s Darfield site would allow

it to bypass the costly and time consuming resource consent


the site within 30 minutes.

Under the plan change, rules

would control building location,

colour and height within the

DPMA and ensure the retention

of open rural land surrounding

the built up area.

In its application, Fonterra argued

that the plan change would

create more certainty about the

nature of future expansion for

itself, the district council and the

surrounding community, including


“Given the scale and economic

importance of the dairy industry

within the Rural Outer Plains

[zoned] environment, a primary

reason for this plan change is

to reduce the time, cost and

uncertainties associated with

consenting for what is largely the

consolidation of an established

dairy plant.”

Darfield Community Committee

chairman Paddy McKay

said Fonterra’s presence had been

great for the town and he couldn’t

see any problem with the plan

change .

Mr Parlane said the timing

of the Mi-Sex comeback made

them an ideal headliner and it

had just been a matter of finding

other artists that would fit

“Dragon has got hit after hit,”

Maddisons Rd safety concerns

Weedons Residents’

Association chairman John

McKim writes about traffic

concerns on Maddisons Rd.

When first becoming a Selwyn

resident more than 20 years ago

this writer approached both the

district council and the local

power authority to help improve

the safety on Maddisons Rd

during the winter because of the

dense fog.

The district council was asked

to put a white line down the

centre of the road and the power

authority to place reflectors on

the power poles.

Within a few weeks reflectors

appeared on the poles. The

district council’s response was

that the road was too narrow for

them to legally put a white line

down the centre. After a very

lengthy protracted battle of several

years a white line magically

appeared as if placed by the road

safety fairy.

Then came Izone - at the consents

hearing for Izone the writer

along with a number of others

based their submission on road

safety issues which would, or

could, be caused by the consent

being granted.

The commissioner refused to

hear these submissions which

meant that the district council

did not have to consider external

traffic issues.

When the matter of Maddisons

Rd being used effectively as a

main thoroughfare was raised an

expert employed by the district

council stated that a traffic

island at the junction of Hoskyns

Rd and Maddisons Rd would

prevent any heavy transport

using Maddisons Rd. The mind


Latest (2014) official traffic figures

released by the council show

a fourfold increase. For most of

its length along Maddisons Rd

there is barely enough room for

two trucks to pass let alone if a

cyclist is included in the equation.

But, according to the mayor,

when it was suggested that

cyclists should be restricted to

single file his view expressed at

a council meeting was that the

trucks should simply have to fall

into line behind the cyclists until

there was sufficient room to pass.

GETTING BUSIER: Maddisons Rd ​

This may work on the planet

ZOG but it isn’t happening here

on planet Earth.

In emails sent to the Weedons

Residents’ Association by the district

council they openly admit

to adopting a wait and see policy

relating to Maddisons Rd. How

long will they have to wait to see

someone killed because of their

refusal to look seriously at the


This week’s unfortunate death

on another Weedons through

road emphasises the fact that the

council should look more seriously

at local traffic patterns.

District council acting chief

executive Stephen Hill

responds to John McKim’s

comments in today’s


The district council is continuing

to monitor vehicle use of

Maddisons Rd.

Rural roads near Rolleston

are experiencing more traffic as

the area grows and this road has

seen about a threefold increase in

traffic from data recorded in the

1990s to the most recent traffic

counts from 2014 that show on

average approximately 1800 vehicles

using the road per day.

To date, the main safety concern

on this road has been vehicle

crashes at the Maddisons Rd and

Weedons Ross Rd intersection

and for this reason the district

council is participating in a flashing

stop warning sign trial at this


Changes planned to the wider

roading network are expected

to assist in managing increased


Jones Rd is planned to be

widened from Hoskyns Rd to

Weedons Ross Rd within the next

12 months making this a more

attractive route into Rolleston’s

industrial area than the equivalent

section of Maddisons Rd.

A new motorway interchange

at Weedons Ross Rd is expected

be constructed by NZTA by 2018

as part of stage 2 of the Southern

Motorway extension. This will

assist by diverting traffic that to

date has preferred not to use State

Highway One-off nearby local

roads onto the new four-lane


The police investigation into

the tragic accident on Newtons

Rd involving a pedestrian and

a vehicle is currently under way

and speculation on the cause of

the accident is not appropriate at

this time.

New uniforms for Lincoln HS

• By Caitlin Miles


students will have new uniforms

from next year.

The school decided to go

through a review process following

changes to the school’s


Lincoln High School principal

Kathy Paterson said the uniform

was due for a review.

“The uniform is a significant

change, it’s very exciting for the

school,” Mrs Paterson said.

The uniform change will

involve swapping out the polo

top for a fitted shirt, adding a tie,

blazer and a jumper and changing

a kilt for a navy blue skirt.

The uniform will be introduced

for year nine students next year,

students in year 10-12 can either

wear the old uniform or the new

one. Mrs Paterson said this way

the school can minimise costs

for families having to get new


She said the students felt very

proud wearing the new uniform.

“We went through an extensive

review process, it took roughly 18

months to complete the process,”

she said.

The girls have never had a serious

“We had a tea towel catch fire

Emily said the judging was the

Our People


Facing retirement after setting up

Butch and Jo Stern are selling the Mt Hutt Lodge

after a successful 12 years in business. Butch spoke

to Tom Doudney about turning the lodge into an

award-winning enterprise, his background on the

professional surfing circuit and meeting Jo on an

Australian beach

So, you’re the owner of Mt Hutt


I see them, meet them, greet

them and feed them, mate.

And how has that been

working out for the last 12


Fantastic! Beautiful place to

live, phenomenal people, great

clients, our timeshare clients

come from all over the world,

and the local farmers are great


We are the highest ranked

hospitality timeshare resort in

Australasia. We took it from a

dead-in-the-water resort to now

where we get awards every year.

We have been top of the ladder

now since we first took over

and we have a whole bunch of

plaques and honours for it.

Why are you selling up then?

We’re not leaving because there

is no money in it – the restaurant

and bar are always busy

and that’s hard when you want

to have a lifestyle. But basically

it’s just that we’ve been here 12

years and my last restaurant I

had for 24 years in Australia.

That’s all I’ve done – she married

a restaurant.

But now I am 67, my wife has

just battled cancer and won, and

we looked at each other and said

‘let’s go skiing and play more

golf ’.

Sounds like a good plan!

I think so, it’s time we retire.

What awards have you won

with the lodge?

It’s the Wyndham Hotels’ RCI

awards. We win their hospitality

and silver crown awards every

year since we bought it in 2004.

That’s all based on the feedback

of people who stay here.


Yeah, I do the cooking, we get

great reviews on our food, my

wife runs the front. It is a small

little family operation with me

and her and one or two staff and

we do all the work. Jo also is a

ski instructor at Mt Hutt in the

winter. She has been teaching on

Mt Hutt since 1979.

How long have you and Jo

been together?

23 years.

How did you meet?

We go back to surfing in the

1970s but in those days she was

married to another bloke. Then

later, she was my ski instructor

here on Mt Hutt in the 1990s – I

married my ski instructor.

How did you meet that first

time when you were surfing?

Just at the beach in Australia.

We lived in the same town,

Aireys Inlet, on the Great Ocean


How did you get talking at

that point?

If you see a pretty girl at the

beach and you’re single of course

you are going to talk to her!

What happened then?

Two weeks later she disappeared

and I found out 10 years

later that she had moved to New

Zealand and she was teaching

Frame OF mind

For this exhibition, I am exploring

issues of societal bias through a

personal lens.

The effect of proselytized overly

fixed viewpoints on political,

religious, racial, gender and

environmental issues is alarming.

When this alarm is combined with

the information bias that occurs in

this curated information age, our

dual desires to belong and control

are kicked into overdrive.

I am not immune to this, but

am also shocked at the lack of

empathy or comprehension of

‘other’ that some people exhibit.

This body of work is my way of

trying to understand.

Though many (including

myself) try to be independent,

compassionate, open-minded

and critical in our thinking, we

cannot avoid being influenced.

Not only by our own experience

and state of mind, but also by

broader cultural, societal, and

scientific relevancies. And this is

always changing.

Art a fantastic way of exploring

issues because it combines both

intellectual and intuitive practices.

The frame is overt, pedantic. As

in a museum display, it provides

a curated context, which is only

ever part of the story.The content

captures personal situations and

impressions – things I have felt,

seen and imagined.

Whilst painting, I have been

deliberately mindful of my thought

process. I asked myself; What is

the true impetus for this work?

What narrative is cycling/growing

in my mind?

How is this effecting my choices?

At what point/s does my ‘frame

of mind’ become ‘confirmation

bias’? To what degree is bias

necessary? When does it become

a liability?

I didn’t discover any big answers,

just personal ones – but every bit


Some clues are reflected in the

work titles, much more in the

works themselves as physical



manifestations of my frame of


Most importantly, I am inviting

the viewer to reflect upon their

own frame of mind or state of bias

successful business near Mt Hutt

How did you end up getting

ski lessons with her?

I just ran into her on the T-bar

and one of her friends who was

still back in Australia had said to

her: ‘Hey, Butch is coming over,

keep an eye out for him’. And I

jumped on a lift and said: ‘Hey

Jo’ and she said: ‘Hey Butch’ and

the rest is history.

Was getting skiing lessons

just a ploy to spend more time

with her?

There was that and my

dynamic personality (laughs).

No, I’m just a very lucky man

who was in the right place at the

right time.

When you were in Aireys Inlet

were you managing another

hospitality place over there?

I owned a restaurant there

for 24 years, right on the beach.

It was called the Lighthouse

Restaurant. I started that in 1976

and we sold it in 2000 to move

over here. I started a little Mexican

restaurant in Methven – let’s

just say it worked, so we sold up

all of our properties in Australia.

Your accent tells me that

you’re American originally.

I was born in the States, I’m an

Australian citizen and I live here.

In 1969, I went on a three-month

surfing trip to France and here

I am. I have had 15 days in the

States ever since.

PRIME LOCATION: Butch and Jo Stern’s Mt Hutt Lodge is up for sale.

How old were you when you

left the States?


How did you come from

surfing in France to moving

to Australia and owning the

restaurant over there?

I was a professional surfer.

I surfed the world but I never

made any money so it’s a good

thing I could cook.

You were paid for surfing?

I surfed in competitions but

mostly I just went surfing. I was

very blessed to be able to do the

things I was able to do.

But what led you to start the

restaurant in Australia?

I was helping with the beginning

of [international surfing

chain shops] Quicksilver and

Rip Curl, doing a bit of work for

them, but I realised I would be

better living in a smaller town

where I could use the things

I did well – I am classically

French trained as a chef. I spent

two years cooking in France, I

cooked in Austria, did a bit in

South Africa but the majority in


Does your cooking reflect

all those different places that

you’ve worked?

It’s ‘Pacific rim’ cooking – we

have a bit of everything.

So you worked for Quicksilver

and Rip Curl in the early

days. Tell me more about that.

I catered the opening for

Quicksilver’s factory right at the

start. And I made surfboards for

them – I fibreglassed them.

Was that a good job?

No, fibreglass dust makes you

itch so it’s actually not a healthy

job. The chemicals are really bad.

What part of the US did you

grow up in?

Santa Barbara, California.

Where are you going to live

when you sell the lodge?


You’re not moving too far


Well, the point is that you will

never find a greater place to live

in the world than Mid-Canterbury.

When my wife got cancer, the

amount of people who jumped

in to help her was amazing.

We have got a local lady

named Janet O’Hara who was a

Commonwealth Games bike rider

and a master ski racer. She had

a crash and became a paraplegic

and she telephones my wife and

she says: ‘Hey Jo, I hear you are

looking for drivers – I can drive,

so I’ll be your Wednesday girl’.

And she is a paraplegic with a

special hand-controlled car. So

every Wednesday, she showed

up to pick up my wife to take her

to cancer treatment in Christchurch.

And those are the kind

of people you have in Canterbury.

It’s a phenomenal place to


How much are you asking for

the lodge?

We want $1.3 million. That’s

for a home, a restaurant and bar

and rental properties and a lot of


Are there any other hobbies

we haven’t talked about that

you’ve got which are important

to you?

Just being happy, living life. If

you wake up in the morning and

you have a shave and you like

what you see, you are doing all

right. You have to be happy with

what you are, happy with what

you make, happy with what you

make your life.

With my cooking I go out and

talk to every one of my customers

up here and I look at all the

plates that come back. You are

expressing an art, that’s what the

whole thing is about.

Following on from their Selwyn Aquatic Olympics event, the Selwyn Aquatic Centre will also take part

in the nationwide Paralympic Gold Mufti Day on Thursday 8 September to celebrate the opening of

the 2016 Paralympic Games. You can join this event by dressing in gold (no face paint in the pool

please), watching the opening ceremony at the centre, having your photo taken in a gold frame and

making a donation to Paralympics New Zealand. Awards will be given out for best dressed.

Drive phone-free campaign launched

On 1 November 2009 it became illegal for drivers in New Zealand to use a hand-held mobile phone

while driving. Drivers can’t use a mobile phone:

· to make receive, or terminate a telephone call

· to create, send or read a text message or email

· to create, send or view a video message.

Breaching this rule incurs an $80 fine and 20 demerit points on your driver’s licence. Drivers who text

are 23% more likely to be involved in a crash.

A survey on mobile phone use is available online at www.selwyn.govt.nz/drivephonefree or it can be

completed at any Council Library/Service centre. A $150 Westfield voucher will be won by one lucky

person completing the survey. The survey closes on Monday 12 September.

On the roads this week

From 31 August, East Maddisons Road is open to traffic travelling from Selwyn to Goulds Roads while

road work continues. It is closed to vehicles travelling from Goulds to Selwyn Roads. Gravelling and

reshaping work will take place on Auchenflower Road and gravelling work will take place on Ahuriri

Road, with traffic controls in place on both roads. Footpath repairs and resealing will take place in

Rolleston on Beaumont Drive. Work to remove sections of high shoulder to improve the drainage of the

road surface will be occur on Leaches Road, with the road remaining open. Road works to improve the

shape of the unsealed surface will take place on sections of Railway Road, with traffic controls in place.

Come and visit Darfield Library

Darfield Library and Service Centre continues to welcome customers

while work is underway to strengthen part of the building.

The library is open with normal hours and still has the full collection

available for borrowing. Please use the carpark door entry as the

main doors are cordoned off for works. Parking is available at

the front of the building and two accessibility car parks are also

available near the temporary entry for people with limited mobility.

The work is anticipated to take another three weeks and involves

adding extra bracing to the oldest part of the library which is used

as meeting space, the entrance foyer and a storage area. Library

meeting rooms are not able to be used while work occurs.

Library staff appreciate help from Council staff to keep services

operating and we appreciate your patience while work occurs.

Don’t let a fire escape

An open fire season is currently in place in Selwyn’s rural plains

area. While outdoor fires may be lit there are a number of fire safety

guidelines that must be met. Before you light a fire please visit

www.selwyn.govt.nz/fire to check the rules.

Rainfall has been low over winter, with vegetation starting to dry out

and local volunteer fire fighters have been called out to a number

of escaped burns or older fires which have reignited. No burning is

allowed at night or when moderate or strong winds are occurring or

forecast so please check the weather forecast carefully. Fires also

need an adequate fire break and must be constantly supervised and

fully extinguished.

Under Environment Canterbury air rules, to prevent smoke pollution

only dry vegetation cut at least six weeks prior may be burned.

In hill and high country areas a permit is required for outdoor fires

year-round. Outdoor fires are not allowed in residential areas under

Environment Canterbury rules, except for barbeques.

Owning a husky requires dedication

Rescue NZ, the company

re-homing abandoned or

unwanted huskies.

This season is shaping up to

be the worst in the company’s

seven-year history.

Although many of the

unwanted dogs come from

Auckland, Husky Rescue NZ has

experienced an influx of huskies

from Christchurch.

“We do always have dogs from

Christchurch … it’s pretty much

one dog a week from Canterbury.

It’s the worst winter we’ve ever

had,” Husky Rescue NZ founder

Michelle Attwood said.

The siberian husky is known to

be a hands-on breed.

“In summer, that means [running

or walking] very late at

night, or early in the morning,

to avoid those 20 deg C temperatures.”

Huskies also require seasonally

intense fur maintenance, a

lot of entertainment and a firm

understanding of who sets the

rules, she said.

“If the owner fails to establish

their position as leader, the

husky, with its strong pack

mentality, will become the pack

leader instead and be almost

impossible to control,” Ms Attwood


Many people will purchase a

husky before understanding the

dog’s needs and then give up

when the job becomes too hard,

she said.

“[Owners] say: ‘Oh well, it

jumped a six-foot fence, it ate

the neighbour’s cat and it won’t

come back when it’s called’ …

Those are all just standard husky

Reproducing the flavours of Melbourne

Ever wondered who is cooking your food when you go

out to a café or restaurant? The Selwyn Times continues a

series this week with C1 Espresso head chef, Lucy Ayres

• By Gabrielle Stuart

LUCY AYRES was told she was

crazy for leaving Melbourne to

return to Christchurch three

years ago.

But since being back, she has

started her own business, earned

a job managing C1’s kitchen,

and seen the local food scene


“I always found Christchurch

was quite conservative, people

weren’t willing to step outside the

box with what they ate. But the

food scene was starting to change

in Melbourne so a big thing for

me was bringing that creativity

back into Christchurch, and

people are open to it,” she said.

At C1, that meant she had

the freedom to try creative

things with her dishes, like

serving french toast with cherry

tomatoes, bacon and lemon curd

rather than the classic fruits and


She believed that willingness

to change also contributed to

the success of BAOdown, the

steamed bun market stall she

opened when she arrived back in

“In Melbourne there were quite

a few food stalls set up around

doing steamed buns. I went

there every day and I fell in love

with them. So when I ended up

moving back I wanted to set up

to make some money between

finding a job.”

She ran the stall with her

sisters, Isabella and Sofie,

working weekends at the markets

and catering for events and

festivals while working part-time

at C1.

She said it was a lot of fun, but

when she was offered a full-time

job managing the kitchen at C1

last summer she had to sit down

and make a choice.

Although she enjoyed the stall,

she said the potential she saw to

revitalise the kitchen and menu

at C1 won out.

“I was starting to enjoy working

at C1 more than I was taking it

seriously at the stall. This way

I’ve got the creative ability to

lead the team, and (C1 owner)

Sam Crofskey supports my ideas,

which is great.”

creating, getting rid of that ‘angry

chef’ attitude in the kitchen and

making it a great positive place to

be,” she said.

Personally, she said she had

always loved food.

“I’d invite my friends over

and we’d always be making

something in the kitchen when

I was 10 or 11, even if it was just

mashed potatoes.”

While she hoped to do more

travel in the future, she said

she could see herself staying in

Christchurch for many years.

the food at C1, it’s the best in the

city. That’s my goal.”

Fresh ideas with the anticipation of spring

Rachel Vogan says with spring due next week there’s a fresh set of things to do in the garden.

SPRING IS nearly

here. This change of

season often oozes more

excitement, energy and

vitality than any other.

With the warmer months

and longer days comes

more time in the garden,

you can get your hands

as dirty as you want to.

If you are a seed

sower, as opposed to the

seedling planter, you will


Hard-working lawns can do with a

spruce up now. Sprinkle lawn fertiliser

generously all over the lawn. Avoid

mowing for a few days to allow fertiliser

time to sink into the soil and ensure

it doesn’t end up in the catcher of the

mower. Spray for weeds as well, as

nipping them in the bud now, before

they take over, will save you time and

energy later on. New lawns can be

laid any time in September, October

and November. Prepare the area

well in advance by removing weeds,

cultivating the soil to a fine crumb

and adding lawn food. Most lawn seed

germinates in a couple of weeks and

takes a good three months before it

can be lightly mown and walked on.

Root crops

The likes of beetroot, carrots, radish

and parsnip can all be sown now.

The preparation is the same for all;

they require a well dug-over soil or

vegetable mix to grow in and full sun

is vital. Sowing in rows makes it easier

to manage weeding and remember

where the seeds are. Radish seedlings

appear in a week or so, whereas the

others can take up to a month. Beetroot

and carrots take three to four months

to mature, while parsnips take five to

six months. Once the seedlings are up,

leafy crops such as lettuce, spinach and

pak choy can be planted in between the

rows, as they will be ready to harvest

before the root crops. This is a great

way to maximise growing space.

plant labels and seeds.

The sense of satisfaction

when seeds germinate

doesn’t dissipate, no

matter how long you

have been doing it.

For those new to it,

remember not to sow

seeds too thickly, and label

and date what they are.

If using a mini

propagator, or some other

sort of miniature glass

house that limits

air flow, always make

sure young seedlings

are still able to get

plenty of air.

Seedling planters, you

still have time on your

hands to get the soil

ready and to stock up

on garden gloves, stakes,

fertilisers and tools, ready

for action in a few weeks.


In flower now

Magnolias and michelia are in full flurry

now, laden with delicate-looking waxy

blooms that are a lot more durable

than you would think. Both of these

species cope easily with frost, wind

and rain. These are real statement trees

and shrubs, and ideal choices to plant

in areas where you want a focal point.

Soil-wise they cope with just about

anything but pure sand or thick clay. As

long as they can anchor themselves into

some heavy ground they seem to thrive.

Pruning is best done after flowering

and only if required. Give them a sidedressing

of general garden fertiliser

this month and mulch the root zones

to keep the roots cool over summer.


These hard-working fruit trees need

some TLC. In warmer regions, fertilise

with specific citrus food/fertiliser.

Sprinkle it around the drip line of the

plant as this is the area where most

of the feeder roots are. At the same

time, drench the bush with Seasol to

trigger the plant into active growth.

Pruning can be done over the next

two months as well. Remove any dead

or diseased growth and thin out the

branches to allow more light into the

centre of the plant. This helps prevent

black sooty mould and other pest and

disease issues. In colder areas, hold

off doing these tasks until October.


For those of you who like to germinate

your own seed, roll up your sleeves.

A number of the cold-sensitive crops

can be sown now, ready for planting

out in October and November when

the warmer months arrive in earnest.

The main ones to get underway are the

crops that take the longest to germinate

and establish as seedlings. These are

tomatoes, capsicums, chillies, tomatillos,

cucumbers and eggplants. Sow these

in trays of seed-raising mix and place

somewhere warm indoors, where the

sun will reach them for at least half of

the day. Keep the soil moist, but not wet.


‘Pacific Giants’

Flower garden

Plant out dormant summer stalwarts

such as lilies, gladiolus and dahlias.

Existing clumps of delphiniums can

be split up, if the new shoots have not

started appearing in earnest. Sprinkle

slug bait around to deter slimeballs.

Sweet peas can either be sown now or

seedlings can be planted out. These

seedlings cope with cold weather, and

the earlier they are planted the earlier

you will be enjoying the blooms.

Pinch out the tips at planting time

to encourage more side branches.

Tough, good-looking Mazda ute

• By Ross Kiddie

WHEN YOU look at all the

product Mazda has to offer new

car buyers, especially here in

New Zealand, there’s one vehicle

which looks out of place – that is

the BT50 light commercial ute.

I say that because Mazda has

a huge manufacturing emphasis

on cars and sport utility vehicles,

and the line-up it has now

is focused heavily on providing

buyers with quality product fit

for purpose.

Nevertheless, to be profitable

and competitive in today’s global

market, companies which have

utility vehicles are experiencing a

buoyancy like never before, more

so here in New Zealand. Last

year Ford’s Ranger utility was the

biggest selling vehicle overall, and

that has never happened in this

country before.

Mazda have capitalised on

Ranger’s success as well, the BT50

is a sister vehicle; while the shape

is different, the platform and

engine are the same.

The BT50 has just had a substantial

upgrade both outside and

inside. Major exterior changes

include a new grille and lights up

front, while rear tail light assemblies

have had significant garnish

changes. Inside, there are new

seat coverings, and an upgrade

MAZDA BT50: Substantial upgrade provides a fresh look.

on the plastic trim elements.

According to Mazda the

changes give the BT50 a more

aggressive, muscular look and

by my reckoning, it is still one of

the best looking utes in the New

Zealand market.

Elsewhere, the BT50 is much

the same rugged ute as it ever

has been. It lands in a range of 13

variants priced from $35,295 to

$57,295. All have a 3.2-litre fivecylinder

engine, and there are the

usual choices between single cab,

Freestyle cab and double-cab, two

and four-wheel-drive. And there

are options between manual or

automatic transmission, although

it’s fair to say, most are autos.

The test vehicle was the range

topping GSX double cab automatic.

Incidentally, that model

with manual transmission is

available at $55,295.

I’ve often written about how

much I enjoy five-cylinder

engines, they have a characteristic

of their own, and in the BT50,

it stands out for its smooth and

rattle-free operation.

It is a twin-camshaft, 20-valve

unit which is rated at 147kW and

470Nm, it is a high technology

engine which offers low maintenance

costs thanks to a new

capped price servicing initiative

by Mazda New Zealand.

It also has the benefit of low

fuel usage. Mazda claims a

9.2-litre per 100km (31mpg)

combined cycle average for

the BT50. My time with the

test vehicle constantly listed

around 10l/100km (28mpg)

with an instantaneous figure of

7.7l/100km (36mpg) available at

a 100km/h cruise (engine speed


Power is harnessed seamlessly

through the six-speeder.

The ratios are a wide spread of

what is required for low range

work as well as broadening to

promote those satisfactory fuel

usage figures. The driveline is

smooth, hiding well the tough

mechanical elements that have

high demands, such as a 3500kg

towing figure.

Naturally, the four-wheel-drive

system has a low ratio transfer

case, it can be manipulated by a

console-mounted switch. I didn’t

do a lot of off-road work, but I

did tackle a long shingle incline

deep in the Malvern Hills. The

BT50 is in its element on rutted

road surfaces, the suspension is

supple, dealing to bumps and

corrugations, and providing a

cushioned ride.

Bearing in mind that the BT50

still has a leaf-spring located live

rear axle, the suspension engineers

have done well to create

the civilised ride along with the

load bearing properties needed

in the traditional ute. The BT50

also gets a high ground clearance

of 237mm, which means crosscountry

travel can be tackled

with confidence.

A busy long weekend in the

backyard culminated in a hefty

load of foliage needing transporting

to the green waste depot. The

BT50 served the job perfectly,

just reminding me how versatile

the double-cab ute is in today’s


And while the BT50 doesn’t fit

perfectly in the Mazda stable, it’s

a vehicle that has come to Mazda

courtesy of the Ford/Mazda marriage.

While that combination

hasn’t been perfect over the years,

both sides have reaped benefits,

and the BT50 is a result of how

well the relationship has worked.

150 Years of transport

through Rolleston

Allan Familton at the

controls of his Burrell

traction engine


Rolleston is turning 150 with

celebrations planned for the

weekend of 14th to 16th October.

Rolleston’s presence alongside

state highway one and the railway

lines heading south and west, was

for many decades a quiet one.

The idea of Rolleston as a satellite

town to Christchurch came and

went, with slow growth until the

2010 and 2011 earthquakes which

led to accelerated growth with an

unstoppable impetus.

It is somewhat appropriate then

that Rolleston is celebrating its

Model traction engine

150th at a time when its industrial

presence is expanding, with

industry and agriculture served by

two inland ports with direct links to

Lyttelton and Timaru for transport

to international markets.

Burrell traction engines

and Foden steam truck

The evolvement of

agriculture, industry and

transport in the area, is

the theme of the 150th


On the Saturday, people

will have the chance to

wander around displays

of farm equipment and machinery,

vintage engines, tractors, traction

engines, trucks, cars, motorcycles,

military displays, and other

interesting vehicles of all eras, as

well as cultural displays while food

and refreshments will be

available. Mainline Steam

will also be bringing a

steam engine to the Railway


“It will be the latest beside

the oldest for people of all

ages and especially children

to see how things have

advanced and changed

over the years,” explains Jeff

Bland who is chairing the

organising committee.

Rolleston 150th

Committee Member, Allan

Familton will oversee the displays of

agricultural, industry, transport and

railway history that was either used

in the district or reflects an era.

Allan will also be exhibiting a

model traction engine that has been

in the district for around twenty

five years, along with two Burrell

traction engines and a Foden steam

truck. As the two traction engines

spent their lives in agriculture they

are representative of machinery that

operated in the district from the

late 1900s to 1950s though traction

engines were used around Rolleston

earlier than that.

“The model traction engine

was built by Alan Lake from

Christchurch, who used to bring the

engine out to Rolleston,” explains


People will also be able to

see traction engines operating

a threshing mill, chaff cutter

and sawmill while Allan will be

demonstrating his Foden steam

truck’s three way tipping deck.

Owners of vintage to modern

machinery or vehicles that have a

connection with Rolleston or reflect

an era are invited to display these

(regardless of their condition) and

to be part of a Grand Parade on the


The organisers also invite people

with old photographs to bring

these to the Rolleston Community

Centre on Friday, 18th September

from 1pm to 5pm so they can be

scanned and a brief history noted,

for inclusion in displays and a book

on Rolleston’s history.

with many opportunities for

people to take part. Simply email:

Panelbeating business

meets challenges

Almost ten years ago, Scott Jefcoate had the opportunity to purchase

the business he was working for, R O Jones Panelbeaters. Scott was 24

years old at the time yet keen to put his personal touch on the business

and be his own boss.

Since then, Scott has experienced the ups and downs of running

a business such as after the February 2011 Christchurch earthquake

when the inner city was cordoned off and R O Jones could not operate

for six weeks.

“All our customers left overnight. They were city based and there

was no central city anymore so trading was very quiet when we were

allowed back in,” explains Scott who dealt with the situation by getting

on with it.

After cleaning up and dealing with the damage, Scott had to rebuild

his business, during which time he kept all his staff.

Further on, and they received just one month’s notice to vacate their

Bath Street building, which was to be demolished. He had to very

quickly find new premises and shift the business before the wrecking

ball came in.

Through the challenges, it has been

Scott’s resilience, a supportive team and

a friendly approach that has seen the

business go from strength to strength.

Two years ago, Scott took over Laycock’s

Collision Repairs providing a convenient

outlet for people on the south west side of

the city.

Both R O Jones Panelbeaters and

Laycock’s Collision Repairs offer a full

service of collision repairs, general panel

beating and spray painting, for all motor


auto services

Keep your motor running smoothly this summer

vehicles and commercial fleets.

They will touch up scratches

and knock any annoying dents

back into shape. With spray

bake ovens in each of the

outlets and fully qualified staff,

repairs can often be turned around within a week.

Customers can drop off their vehicle on the day or the

team will arrange towing where damage is more severe. They

do work for all insurance companies and have a fleet of over

twenty loan vehicles between the two branches so there is no

need to be without wheels while the car is in for repair.

Nine staff are based at Laycock’s Collision Repairs in

Sockburn and eight in the central city branch, R O Jones

Panelbeaters. Staff are i-car trained where they have received

off-site job training to industry standards for panel beating

and with a mix of ages the older hands pass their knowledge

onto the younger ones. This

diversity also means that jobs

can be allocated according to the

person’s skill base.

Call into R O Jones

Panelbeaters at 107 St Asaph

Street, or Laycock’s Collision at

17 Epsom Road in Sockburn,

or phone 0800 ROJONES and

you will be put through to the outlet you

require. You can also email an enquiry

to: rojones.city@xtra.co.nz, check out

on their website: www.rojones.co.nz and

find them on Facebook.

a bad situation,” adds Scott

It is nice to walk into a home with a

welcoming feel, something that Compass

Homes has achieved with their Faringdon

show home in Rolleston.

At 217 square metres, the Levante fourbedroom

home is ideal for a family. There is

a sensible allocation of space starting with a

spacious front entry that leads past a separate

lounge where there are views of the street, and

a study nook cupboard to the open plan living


The living area sits on one side of the house

capitalising on its northwest positioning and

allowing the living, dining and lounge to be

soaked in afternoon sun. There is also great

indoor/outdoor flow. Sliders access a thirty

square metre deck from the family living area,

kitchen and master bedroom, making the

most of the good sized section.

Three bedrooms sit behind the living wing

with a fourth to the left of the entryway. This

is accessed from the bedroom wing but could

easily open onto the living side for a study or

guest room.

The master bedroom has both ensuite and

walk-in robe and east to west orientation that

takes advantage of morning to evening sun.

This house has a number of special touches

too, such as a half wall that slightly separates

dining and family living, double doors into the

lounge, peephole wall feature at the end of the

kitchen bench, and cassette air conditioning

system, which is a small upgrade from the

design’s standard specifications.

The entertainer’s kitchen offers good work

flow, plenty of bench space, good sized pantry

for hiding the mess, and easy access through

sliders to the deck for drinks, food and when

having a barbecue on a summer’s day. There is

also a mix of storage options that includes tray

cupboards and pot drawers as well as an island

sink that is large enough for working on and

dining at.

The main bathroom comes with bath, shower

and good sized vanity and there is a separate

toilet while the laundry is access point to the

double garage. Here the door opens to the

west, away from the street, offering privacy

and catching the afternoon sun instead of a

cold southerly. There is also plenty of off-street


This house has a handsome presence from the
