Videolink medical plan

• By Tom Doudney

A PROPOSED 24-hour medical

facility in Rolleston could see doctors

at Christchurch Hospital giving

instructions to nurses via videolink

to provide around-the-clock care for

Selwyn residents.

And the facility could later be expanded

to include other health services.

The proposal has come out of discussions

between the district council,

Selwyn Times Canterbury District Health Board and

266mm x 90mm St John.

Grant Miller District councillors Grant Miller

and mayoral candidate Pat McEvedy,

who have been representing the district

council in the discussions, said they believed

the proposal has a strong chance

of going ahead.

The district council is considering using

land it owns next to the new St John

Selwyn Central base for the facility.

While telemedicine, the remote diagnosis

and treatment of patients via videolink

and other digital technology, has

been used before in Canterbury, this

would be the first time the approach

had been used to operate an after hours

acute service.

Patients could be triaged and assessed

before having treatment at the facility

or, in more serious cases, being sent on

to Christchurch.

Cr Miller said a 24-hour medical centre

with doctors on site was not feasible

in Selwyn as a population of well over

100,000 would be required to sustain it.

The telemedicine approach was a viable


“We’re pretty positive at the council

that we can make this happen,” he said.

“We have a good core of people working

on it and we hope to turn it into

reality pretty soon.” •Turn to page 4

“I was in denial, pure and simple. My family were

bringing it up more often with a gentle nudging

to “do something about it.” My ability to hear

accurately was impacting on my whole life and for

what ever reason, I wasn’t convinced that hearing

aids would make much difference.

I am a parent, grandparent and teacher. Conversations

were becoming increasingly difficult. I compensated

and modified my interactions to cope

but I was being robbed on personal enjoyment, on

social occasions, family occasions, everyday life.

I had been to another bigger hearing clinic 3

years ago. I left without a solution to my hearing

problem because the interview and testing was

less about me and more about a company selling

a product. It was a mechanical process and I left

despondent. I was losing my hearing and that

is personal, I needed it dealt with in a personal


Recently I happen to have a couple of conversations

with friends and colleagues who had or were getting

hearing aids. Their feedback on how fabulous

hearing aids were was so positive. They mentioned

Brenna Sincock Hearing. Right people, right time,

right conversations and all of a sudden I was spurred

into action and had booked into see Brenna.

I am not sure that I can do justice in describing

Brenna’s approach. Brenna is infinitely professional,

kind and understanding. Brenna instantly put

me at ease with her friendly nature and lead me

through an interview that really exposed my heart

and motivation as to why I would want to rectify

this increasing inability to participate more fully

in my life! Brenna gave me time and patience. She

fitted hearing aids and I was overcome by the how

much more I could hear.

We have had follow up appointments since and

adjusted the aids. I know I have her support and

can call her with questions at the drop of a hat.

That personal connection, for me, is important for

dealing with something as important as hearing.

In the short time that I have had my hearing aids

they have re-enhanced my life in immeasurable

ways. At school, I no longer have to ask children

to repeat themselves, my colleagues will have

noticed the difference in me, it just such a relief.


Call 03 390 2332 today

My own family are elated, to make an understatement,

but also proud of me for having had the

courage making this decision.

Hearing is a precious gift. Thank you Brenna for

your gentle professional explanations and support.

I highly recommend Brenna Sincock and her

business to anyone who may feel they have any

hearing loss. Don’t leave it for seven years, like I

did!” - Sharen Holmes

FREE DOCTORS’ visits for

doctor says.

Rolleston Central Health

managing director Dr Philip

Schroeder said that the policy,

introduced by the Government

on July 1 last year, had had a

huge impact on general practices

in Selwyn and across Canterbury.

“We are often seeing all those

very well under 13s taking appointments

for what effectively

are just basic colds for which

they never would have been seen

in the past,” Dr Schroeder said.

“Something I am hearing

across all Selwyn practices is that

we are finding it very difficult to

see those that really need care

are being taken up by children

Inder said the new policy appeared

to have been effective at

improving access to primary

General practice teams could

decide how to best manage their

for their enrolled population.

“For instance, it could mean

that children aged under 13 are

initially triaged by a nurse, at

which point it can be decided

whether an appointment with a

MORE THAN $26,000 was

raised for a West Melton girl in

need of a kidney transplant.

A total of $26,218.10 has been

donated to 12-year-old Maddie

Collins following a ball held

recently for her.

Maddie Collins is in need

of a kidney transplant and her

best hopes of finding a suitable

match require her to travel to

the United States. The trip is

expected to cost $350,000.

The ball was held on September

3 and the money was raised

from ticket sales, donations and

an auction.

Fundraising efforts continue

with a national mufti day

planned for this Friday.

West Melton School is joining

the fundraising efforts to help

ex-pupil Maddie.

The event has been put

together for schools and businesses

across the country to get

involved in.

West Melton School principal

Sue Jackson said the school had

no hesitation in getting involved

in ‘Mufti Day for Maddie.’

“We were touched by Maddie

and her family when she was a

student here. Maddie is such a

wonderful girl who has so much

to offer. Taking part in this event

is the least we can do.

“We often have mufti days

for good causes. I can’t think

$20,000 up

for grabs at

Lincoln fair

A PRIZE pool of nearly $20,000

The fair is part of the school’s

150th anniversary which will involve

a week of celebrations, starting

this weekend and finishing up next

weekend with the main reunion.

This is the Parent Teacher Association’s

major fundraiser for the year.

Money raised from the fair will be

used to complete landscaping plans,

and will include permanent seating

and shade structures to provide the

pupils with protection from the sun

during lunch and play breaks.

There will be a competition between

Frustration over church repairs

• By Tom Doudney

SIX YEARS after the

September 2010 earthquake,

the Hororata community is

still in the dark about when its

badly damaged heritage church

will be restored.

When the 7.1 magnitude

earthquake hit, the bell tower of

St John’s Anglican Church toppled

and fell through the roof.

Trust trustee Olive Webb said

many in the community had

expressed frustration with the

lack of visible progress on fixing

the church.

building was surrounded by

people from the community,

who were weeping at the

destruction of the church,” she

Pub back advertising liquor

• By Tom Doudney

THE Hospitality Association

of New Zealand has welcomed

a “precedent-setting’’ ruling

which allows the Prebbleton

Tavern to advertise its offlicence

alcohol prices to


The Gilmore family, who own

the bar and bottle store, had

appealed the Selwyn District

Licensing Committee’s decision

to add a new condition prohibiting

it from advertising alcohol

outside the premises when

renewing its liquor off-licence

last year.

In its decision released last

week, the Alcohol Regulatory

and Licensing Authority

ordered the condition be removed.

Hospitality Association

very good and sensible decision

to overturn the “unjustified”


“I’m just really happy for the

Gilmores because they can get

back to what they have been doing

for the past 30 years.”

She believed the case would

premises which wished

to advertise prices outside.

chairman Al Lawn

said that “as with all judicial

Organic bin tips

To ensure your organics wheelie bin is fully emptied every time:

Keep the bin weight reasonable. If you find it difficult

to move the bin, then you may find it exceeds the

truck lifting limits and could be left behind unemptied.

Keep organic bin contents loose. Don’t compact your

material by standing on it (it may not come out when

tipped by the truck).

Place weeds, branchy material or newspaper at the

bottom of the bin before filling with grass clippings.

This reduces the likelihood of the grass clippings

getting stuck.

Organics only! Absolutely NO plastic bags!

No metals, glass, rocks or stones, bricks or

rubbish please. These cause considerable

damage to the organics shredder.

Put flax and cabbage leaves in your rubbish.

Make sure your bin is not over full – the lid

must close.

Head girl to

LINCOLN HIGH’S head girl

her long locks in the name of


Tomorrow Elin and six other

students will shave their heads

to raise money for the not-forprofit

Collectively the

students have

$3000 but they

CanTeen is an

Elin (above) said shaving her

HEAD TO HEAD: Either the Lincoln High School first XV rugby team (left), or the school’s first XI football team will lose their leg hair


Hair-raising thought of a loss

• By Devon Bolger

FOR THE first time in Lincoln

High School history, the first XV

rugby team, and first XI football

team, will be going head-to-head.

Each team has been tasked

with trying to raise as much

money as possible for the nonprofit

CanTeen organisation by

September 14.

The team that raises the most

money gets to wax the losing

players’ legs in an event that will

be showcased in the school hall

at the annual head shaving. The

head boy and head girl will also

take part.

The event is in conjunction

with the Lincoln High School’s

‘Doing Good Campaign’. It

focuses on the students raising a

goal of $20,000 for charities during

the year.

This event for CanTeen is

expected to raise $3000. It will

bring the total to $19,000 so far.

The football team has recently

been crowned the regional first

XI champions by defeating Cashmere

High School, 2-1.

The first XV rugby team have

not done so well this season.

It’s a battle about more than

just losing leg hair; the rugby

football team knocked down a


Rugby captain, Duncan Finlayson

said losing to the football

team is not an option.

“We’re all really keen to beat

fantastic cause,” Duncan said.

The idea of waxing their legs

was thought up by rugby player

Simon Lancaster and both teams

were happy to get behind the

idea, although very wary.

IT SEEMS to me that the

winter here in Selwyn this year

has been warmer and drier

than usual.

I’m not a meteorologist

though, so I won’t speculate

on the causes of this entirely

subjective observation.

What we know, however, is

that scientists agree that our

earth’s climate is changing and

global emissions are a significant

factor in this change.

The Government is taking

the issue of climate change

seriously, which is why we have

set an ambitious goal for New

Zealand to reduce its greenhouse

gas emissions to 30 per

cent below 2005 levels by 2030.

This will require a massive effort

across all sectors of society

from local and central Government

through to businesses,

iwi and communities.

We have also announced

our intention to ratify the

Paris agreement on climate

change before the UN’s

Framework Convention on

Climate Change conference in

November this year. Ratifying

this year will formalise

New Zealand’s commitment

to addressing climate change

and help support worldwide

momentum towards lowering

global emissions.

The Paris agreement was

finalised in December last

year, when 180 countries that

contribute 99 per cent of global

emissions set reduced emissions


Ratifying the agreement

early gives our support to the

global momentum to implement

the agreement and helps

ensure we have a strong voice

at the table as the details of

the agreement are negotiated.

Ratifying will also build on the

solid work already being done

by New Zealanders to reduce

our emissions.

China and the US, which

are jointly responsible for just

under 40 per cent of global

emissions, have indicated they

will ratify this year, as have

Australia and Canada.

The Government already

has a number of initiatives

underway as part of our work

programme to address climate


These actions include:

•Reviewing and strengthening

the Emissions Trading

Scheme to ensure it is fit for

purpose and is encouraging

emissions reductions and tree


•Investing millions each year

to fund agriculture research

to help the primary sector

become more efficient and less


•Spending a record $1.2 billion

over three years on public

transport and encouraging the

uptake of electric vehicles

•Increasing the amount of

electricity that comes from

renewable energy from 80 per

cent currently to 90 per cent

•And developing measures

on energy and fuel efficiency.

To help ensure we’re on the

right track to reduce emissions

and meet our ambitious target,

we are also setting up three

technical advisory groups

covering adaptation, biological

emissions and forestry. This

is a big global issue and it is

important that we get our

response right.

Fewer car parks not bad for business



chairman Don

Babe responds

to editor Barry

Clarke’s view

on the removal of car

parking on the main

street of Lincoln in last

week’s edition

You are not the first nor will

you be the last to jump to the

conclusion that less car parking

outside businesses means

less customers.

This has been researched

many times around the world

and I am not aware of any

results that show business

declining when car parking is

I will not go there to watch

cars go by or park. Making

the main road more peoplefriendly

will have more people

in the street so will attract visitors

How do businesses think

that having two car parks in

more customers? It is likely the

car parks are full of long-term

parkers so they are completely


The car park north of the

Our People


Volunteer work at home and abroad

Chris Allan started the

Joshua Foundation 11

years ago, which helps

troubled youth in the city.

The Rolleston man spoke

to Caitlin Miles about

how the army saved him

from a bad path, serving

in Sierra Leone and

throwing people out of


Chris can you tell me a bit

about the Joshua Foundation?

Well, it started with the aim to

help troubled and at risk youth.

Now it is about helping all young

people, getting them integrated

into and working with their local

community better. We do a lot of

work with youth all around Canterbury

even though we are based

in Rolleston. Living out here is

close to Burnham Military Camp

which is good since I still work in

the reserve army.

Why did you move to


To provide our children with

an opportunity to learn how to

be self-sustainable with vegetable

and home-grown meat and become

self-reliant and resourceful

with what they have. We live on

0.8ha. We also want to shape the

local community and make it a

safe place to live and play. As a

growing community we all have a

responsibility to make Rolleston a

safe and desirable place to live and

bring up our children.

Do you have much to do with

clubs in Rolleston and Selwyn?

Not at the moment. I’m working

a lot so I haven’t had much to

do with the community. At the

moment a lot of the work we do is

focused more in the city but I feel

there is a need for an organisation

FOCUSED: Chris and Pamela Allan. Their children Joshua, Rachel and Becky all inherited his adrenalin gene, getting ready to

zipline while in Vanuatu, Chris is on the right.

like ours in Selwyn, I think we can

help out young people everywhere

so it’s about making sure we can

help the people we need to and

having time for everyone. I think

we will work with more people

from the area soon though.

You said we, who does that


My wife Pamela and I set it up.

Why did you decide to set up

the project?

We wanted to give kids a

chance, show them that they can

be heading down a bad track and

turn them around and get them

focused on making positive steps

in their own life and in their

communities so they can give

back to them. Once you change

one person in a family, that will

have a run-on effect when they

have a family and that will continue

down the line. That’s what

we want to do. Keep supporting

and pointing young people in a


Pamela and Chris

took their children

to volunteer to

work with villages

and children in

Mele-Mart Village,

Port Vila Efate, in


positive direction for their lives.

Where did the name Joshua

come from?

We wanted to get a name sorted

very early on and my wife and

I were both trying to come up

with ideas. As a Christian-based

organisation we were thinking

of biblical names. We decided

to go into separate rooms and

not come out until we had it.

But then we both walked out

of the rooms at the same time

and thought of the same person.

Joshua. He was hard working

and had strong determination

and they are key values we want

to install in other young people.

Did your time in the army

contribute to your idea?

It’s fair to say I was one of those

kids that I now teach. I was not

in a good way, I had left school

at 15 and was starting to get into

some bad things. Then I joined

the army and those guys basically

became my second family. They

really helped to pull me out of

that place and gave me purpose

and that kind of thing. They have

definitely had an influence on me

and my life and that’s what I hope

to do for these other kids.

What was your time in the

army like?

Like I said they are like my

second family. I also became a

jump master in the army so it

was my job was to throw people

out of C130 planes. I skydived for

25 years and it was really great. I

was a bit of an adrenalin junkie.

You spent time working in

Sierra Leone with the army,

what was that like?

It was horrendous. It was just

after the Civil War in 1993 so it

was a really unstable time over

there. It encouraged me to do

more work in other areas.

You have also done volunteer

work in Vanuatu, can you tell

me about that?

We bought a property over

there when I was a training sergeant.

Just loved the people and

the place. We wanted to serve

the villages with the kids in it.

We wanted to take our kids there

and show them how other people

have to live and show that we can

help them, so we went to some

villages and volunteered with

the people, we took over clothes

and supplies and things they

need. I think it really changed

their perspective on things. Now

we might go shopping and my

kids will point out things that we

could send to Vanuatu. They say:

‘Dad how about we take that over

next time.’ It’s really great to see

them take notice. We just want

to install a passion in them to

help other people.

Is volunteering over there

something you hope to bring

to your programmes with the

Joshua Foundation?

It is, it’s something we are

currently working on actually.

We have partnered up with the

Student Volunteer Army to do

volunteer work in Vanuatu.

Then we plan to open that to

kids across Canterbury. They

would need to fund themselves,

but the plan is to go over for 14

days and help and live in villages

so they can understand what life

is like and why it is important to

help out these people. They really

appreciate the work that people

do to help and that’s why we do


So you still work as well?

Yes, I’m the Officer Commanding

Canterbury Company

for the 2/4 RNZIR (Royal New

Zealand Infantry Regiment).

Do you get any spare time?

Not really. But I don’t mind.

My version of downtime is getting

to sit with mates, couple of

beers and watch the rugby.

You’re a Canterbury supporter


Yes, of course.

Foster Park



Foster Park – Spring 2016 update

Take a stroll at Foster Park

New shared walking/cycling paths that can now be used by the public have been laid around the perimeter of the park and through the park (see map

opposite for path locations). Additional paths will be laid in the future.

Foster Park hosted its first winter sport season with over 600 footballers of all ages taking part in weekend matches. A new LED sports field lighting

system was installed in March and is providing good lighting which is cost efficient for evening sports practices and games. Rolleston Men’s Shed

have established a building at the Dynes Road end of the park and are using their new home. A new temporary toilet facility has been installed

near Broadlands Drive (5 on the map). Permanent toilet facilities will be included in a planned indoor sport complex.

Foster Park is in bloom!



14,500 daffodil bulbs were planted in the autumn by volunteers and Council staff and the daffodils are now starting to bloom at the

park. You can view the display, but please don’t pick the flowers – leave them for everyone to enjoy. We are also planning to plant

more daffodils – with around another 5,000 to be planted each autumn for the next three years, with help from volunteers.




Work planned this summer

Over the next six months we plan to work on these projects at

the park at the locations shown on the map:

· Creating a new sealed carpark near Broadlands Drive

· Developing a hockey mini-turf for local hockey teams

· Developing three new sports fields near Dynes

Road (shown as 7 on the map) to increase

sports field capacity in Rolleston

· Creating some landscaped banks (at 11)

to provide an area for relaxation

· Continuing to design the new

playground, which is planned

to be built within the next

12 months.

Children’s playground update

The Council recently surveyed 83 Rolleston schoolchildren and invited comments from adults to gather information on what they would

like included in a major new playground to be developed at Foster Park opposite the Selwyn Aquatic Centre.

Some of the most popular types of play equipment kids wanted to see included a mouse wheel (similar to a large hamster

wheel), a big slide, a tree hut fort, a flying fox, swings, a BMX and scooter track and a climbing wall.

“The survey results have helped identify what types of activities kids would most like to have at the park. While we may

not be able to fit all of the play options into the park we are looking to accommodate as many of the most popular

options as we can comfortably fit into the space available,” says John Reid, Major Projects Property Manager, who is

overseeing the development of Foster Park.

John says the park will be designed as a destination playground which offers a wider range of play options

than local neighbourhood play grounds. “We’re aiming to create a very exciting facility for kids that will bring

people to the park to enjoy a family outing,” he says.

Leeston, Southbridge, Kirwee and West Melton areas.

Footpath repairs and resealing will take place in Rolleston on Beaumont Drive.

Goulds to Selwyn Roads.

Sign up to Selwyn Gets Ready and win!

In September, Selwyn households are being invited to sign up to the Selwyn Gets Ready website and

go into the draw to win a household emergency kit.

The kit contains several items you will need if you have to evacuate.

To join the website and go into the draw, visit www.selwyn. by 3 October and enter your details. If you’ve already

registered with Selwyn Gets Ready you’re already in the draw, and

don’t need to register again.

The Selwyn Gets Ready website is a database which contains

contact information for local residents. This information is used by

local community response teams to identify who needs assistance

in an emergency and who has skills or resources (like first aid skills

or generators) that could help in a disaster. In a disaster a network

of community response teams operates in Selwyn checking on the

welfare of their community, identifying what needs to be done in

their area and requesting assistance if needed.

The Selwyn Gets Ready system is also used to send texts or emails

warning people of events like snow, strong winds or uncontrolled

fire and to share messages from local police. Access to household

information is restricted to local community response teams and

can’t be viewed by the public.

Netball South Pacific Island

Rolleston Samoa Experience October 2016

The team donating netball supplies

to Netball Samoa in 2013.

Following from our successful team

travelling to Samoa in 2013, it was

decided to take a second team to Samoa

this September (23rd September to 6th


The team of teenage girls are all connected

to the Rolleston Netball Golden Oldies and

have been fundraising for the past

18 months, raising over $30,000 to date.

As Golden Oldies, we have loved the

international tournaments we have

attended – Fiji, San Diego and Hobart,

and we wanted our girls to experience

the same sort of netball fellowship while

giving back to the community. We

wanted to teach them the basic skills of

being generous, working as a team and

appreciating what we have.

The team of eight girls is aged between

13 and 15 years of age and operates as

the iNSPIRE team under our Golden Oldies

umbrella. They have been heavily involved

in raising the money themselves. They’ve

had to learn to budget, to take minutes,

write letters, apply for funding and have

learnt skills to enable them to approach

local businesses for assistance.

The girls have purchased stationery and,

along with Christina Brown, a member of

the 2013 team, have collected stationery

supplies from Rolleston School, Broadfields

School and Whitcoulls Hornby, which they

will donate to Tufutafoe Primary School.

They will stay in a remote village in Savaii,

spend time with the school children and

teach them netball while also playing

a game with them. While at the village

– a visit of four days – they will attend

a traditional church service (albeit in

Samoan!), will help prepare a traditional

tuanai (feast) including weaving plates

and learning about the protocols of eating

a traditional meal on the floor of a fale

(house). They will visit a traditional family

fale (home), a plantation and experience

other cultural lessons.

The whole team will also work with

Netball Samoa in Apia – the girls

in their holiday programme, our

coaches and umpires with some

Netball Samoa personnel. Rolleston

Netball Club have donated old

uniforms that will be given to

Netball Samoa.

They will visit a couple of schools in

Apia and are hoping to also visit the

National Hospital, as a number of our team

are also involved in St John as cadets and


While also enjoying experiencing the

wonderful tourist attractions that Samoa

has to offer, we are hoping that our aim of

“giving back to others and being grateful

for all that we have” is paramount.

We’d like to take this opportunity to

thank our families and friends and all the

businesses who have supported us with

our fundraising events.

Some pre-schoolers are already

“A lot of the hubs are open

As a busy parent, it was easy to

lose track of when children were

due for check-ups, she said.

Part of the problem is families

falling through the cracks in the

dental system.

Pre-schoolers are supposed to

have free dental check-ups each

year, when they are two, three

and four, and then when they

start school.

Behind the Green Door

Ooh La La Hairdressing

Rolleston’s newest hairdressing salon

is a boutique establishment tucked

behind the lime green door on Dunns

Crossing Road.

Experienced senior stylist Amber

Meyerhoff decided the best way to

work was from home, so has turned

one of her rooms into a stunning salon

with glamorous touches to ensure her

clients feel like they are being treated

while she works her magic.

She offers all hairdressing services for

women, men and children including

cuts, colours, perms, blow waves and

hair-ups. The hospitality even extends

to a cider or beer, coffee or tea as part

of the experience.

Because of her handy location and lack

of commute time, Amber is happy to

work late nights for her clients.

All hairdressing services are by

appointment only but she says give her

a call and she will try her upmost to fit

clients in – even last minute ones.

Her product range is the Keune So Pure

range made from 100% pure plant

extracts and is free from parabens,

sulphates and ammonia.

So whether you want to just have a

trim or are looking for a whole new

makeover, give Amber a call at

Capture the colours of spring

• By Rachel Vogan

AS PARTS of the garden leap into

life, the heros in my blooming

world at the moment are daffodils,

tulips, hyacinths and jonquils.

I would love to lead you to

believe that this is all through

careful planning and skill that I

have such a plethora from which to

choose, but that’s not quite true.

The majority of bulbs I am

enjoying now were planted by

the previous owner. She was a

lady who would beaver away in

the garden from dawn to dusk,

constantly digging plants up and

moving them to another place in the

garden to enhance a vista or view.

And now, as I get to sit back

and reap what she sowed, I think

of her often. Yes, I have added my

twinkle to a few areas by planting

a few hundred bulbs, but the bulk

of what I am picking now have

been in situ for 20 years or more.

Did you know that daffodils can

last out of water for up to eight hours

before they start to wilt and fade?

Even though I have known

this for years it always seems

mean to make them suffer, so I

place them in a bucket of fresh

water filled up to their necks.

Tulips, hyacinths and daffodil all

flower at the same time. If you do

not have room in the garden, try

them in pots.

In the vase

Team up these spring

beauties with strong, bold

foliage to fill out the vase.

Go-to ones are bear’s

breeches (Acanthus mollis),

upright outdoor ferns,

variegated flax varieties

or some strong stems of

colourful willow branches –

even red stems of dogwood.

Stems of camellias blend

in beautifully as well, while

branches of berries,

like holly, add another

textural layer.

VIVID: A bunch of daffodil colours and varieties. The trick to keeping them alive once

picked is to change the water every few days and cut the bottom of the stems at the

same time. They can last up to a fortnight in a cooler room.

Quick and easy

to grow endive

Gazania likes the heat

• By Tod Palenski

IF YOU’RE looking to add

some spark to your garden this

summer, look no further than


This flame-like plant produces

incredibly striking orange, yellow,

cream and red flowers and

loves hot, dry, sunny and even

windy growing conditions.

For a perfect planting buddy,

partner it with livingstone

daisies. These bright coloured

plants thrive in the same conditions

as gazania. Because of

this, both plants are great for

mass planting on dry slopes,

bedding, ground cover, edging

and in pots.

And for the same reasons,

gazania and livingstone daises

are both perfect to plant now as

the weather warms up. They’re

especially good to grow if you

plan on being out and about

or away a bit over the warmer

months – once planted, they

require little to no care.

Grab your gazania and livingstone

daisy plants

Make sure the area you

choose to plant in is welldrained,

rather than hard and

wet. Dig a hole and pop a seedling

in. Plant them quite close

together – about 200mm apart –

as they don’t tend to spread far

when they grow.

In around six to eight weeks

your garden should have some

extra spark of summer colour.

SPRING HAS arrived, which

means salad season is just around

the corner. And there’s nothing

like picking fresh salad ingredients

straight out of your garden.

I’ve talked a lot about the

different salad plants (typically

lettuces) – iceberg, baby cos,

red, triumph, just to name a few.

But for some reason I’ve never

mentioned endive in one of these

articles. And I’m not really sure


Endive is a great addition to

any salad. I like to partner its fine

curled, mid-green leaves with


To my mind, endive is a bit bitter

and rocket is a little peppery,

together they’re a great combo.

What’s equally important, and

another reason why I’m surprised

I haven’t mentioned endive in

the past, is it’s so easy and quick

to grow. Unlike most lettuces, it

doesn’t need to create a heart in

the centre so it’s very quick to

produce. Simply pick the leaves

off as you need them.

To plant, look for a welldrained

spot in the garden. If the

soil is still a bit wet and cold from

TASTY: Pick the leaves as you

need them.

winter, try growing endive in a

pot. Just add some good quality

potting mix, plant a couple of

seedlings around 5cm apart and

away you go.

Depending on where you are in

New Zealand and how warm the

soil is yet, it will take around four

to six weeks for your endive to be

ready to harvest. Remember, you

can tell the soil is warming up

when you need to start mowing

your lawns again.

Take a chance on endive. You

might just like what you grow!

Study reveals rapid

weight loss food


twice as fast as meat eaters,

according to a study.

It found that the fastest way

for dieters to fight the flab was

to give up meat products. They

constitute more than a third of

the average meat eater’s daily

calorie intake.

In the first month of a diet,

they lose on average 900g, while

vegetarians’ weight loss is double

that at about 1.8kg.

The difference is even more

noticeable for slimmers who quit

meat at the start of a diet – with

the first month’s weight loss averaging

about 2.3kg.

Vegetarians are said to typically

be better dieters because the

switch away from meat also leads

to people embracing a healthier


The study found that vegetarians

were twice as likely to be

gym members as meat eaters and

exercise twice as much.

The study found vegetarians

were also more likely to pick

low-fat options at the supermarket

than meat eaters.

The study found vegetarians

were also more likely to pick

low-fat options at the supermarket

than meat eaters.

They are also much more likely

to pick low-fat options at the

supermarket and tend to shun

fast food restaurants – just 12 per

cent are users, compared to 39

per cent of meat eaters.

The study, involving 1000

people, was carried out by weight

loss firm Forza Supplements.

Managing director Lee Smith

said: “All our research shows that

becoming a veggie is a great way

to lose weight.

“It’s not that good lean meat is

particularly calorific but we find

that meat eaters consistently have

a higher calorie intake

because the meat they eat is

often cooked in an unhealthy


“A grilled chicken thigh is just

135 calories but that shoots up

to 290 calories when it is fried by

one of the fast food outlets, with

another 300 calories if you add

fries. That is where all the damage

is done.” – Daily Mail

No more coffee

IT’S TOUGH news but

according to a new report from

The Climate Institute, coffee

could be wiped out by 2080.

Based on the report’s estimations,

if global warming continues

at its current rate, rising

temperatures will render half the

land currently used to farm coffee

unsuitable by 2050.

Climate change will also see

an increase in pests and fungi,

which will impact the ability to

farm beans at current levels and,

by 2080, wild coffee is expected

to be wiped from the planet.

This date may feel like plenty

of cups of coffee away, but as

temperatures rise, consumers

IN THE battle of the bulge,

fat-laden cheese is often the first

tasty treat to be scrubbed from

the weekly shopping list.

But research suggests that

consumers who switch to lowcalorie

alternatives may be wasting

their cash.

A study found that ‘skinny’

cheese does not lower cholesterol,

reduce blood pressure or

help to trim the waistline.

Volunteers who spent three

can expect to see their brew’s

flavour and aroma seriously impacted,

while facing increasing

price hikes as the beans become

more scarce.

“Looking ahead, it is hard to

see how consumer prices cannot

be anything but badly affected by

the projected long-term decline

in growing area and other impacts

of a more hostile climate,”

A talent for giving

vehicles a lustrous look

Few people think of setting up a business in

their twenties. It is therefore impressive to

learn that a Rolleston local began his own car

grooming business at the age of 26.

Adam was working as a car groomer for a

well-known prestigious car dealership in

Christchurch, when he moved to Rolleston

and noticed that no car grooming business

was based there.

Seeing an opportunity, Adam decided to take

the plunge and begin his own operation and

in March 2013, he opened Sleek and Shine

and has been really busy ever since.

“Running a business is hard work. While it

can be difficult at times, I’m really enjoying it

and glad I gave it a go,” explains Adam who

says that he loves being his own boss.

Adam and his right-hand man Darren, are

experienced at grooming cars from new

through to vintage, providing a bumper

to bumper service for vehicles of any size;

whether a small runabout, family saloon,

tractor, truck, caravan, camper or wedding

car, with classic vehicles a favourite. Adam

especially loves the opportunity to carry out

a high-end groom on a prize vehicle such

as an Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, Ferrari or


No matter what the vehicle it will be looking

like new once Adam and Darren have

worked their magic as they are passionate

about ensuring a high level of service.

“We recently groomed the interior of

a grader. That was pretty exciting and

so different. We never thought we’d be

grooming a grader,” laughs Adam. “We’ve

also had a motorised trike.”

Adam and Darren take pride and joy in what

they do. With attention to detail they are

particular about the look of each and every

vehicle that gets a Sleek and Shine treatment.

Adam admits that his favourite aspect is

cutting and polishing with the vehicles

having a mirror finish when they leave the


“We’ve had customers bring their car in for

grooming prior to selling it, and then loving

the job so much they decide to keep the

vehicle,” says Adam.

Sleek and Shine’s basic groom costs $189 for

both interior and exterior of a vehicle with

The Works (a high-end groom) costing $389.

They also sell maintenance packs that

contain dashboard reviver, auto glass cleaner,

interior cleaner, windscreen washer fluid

and a microfibre cloth for $25; All Blacks car

seat covers and floor mats; spare tyre covers;

wiper blades; portable mobile chargers with

a built-in torch for charging cell phones,

cameras, or other devices that plug into a

USB port.

New products are also due in store that offer

paint, fabric, leather and glass protection.

These will make ideal Christmas gifts as are

the Sleek and Shine gift vouchers.

Sleek and Shine is located on the Izone side

of Rolleston at 855 Jones Road, next door

to Jones Road Auto. They are open 9–5,

Monday to Friday or Saturday by booking.

Toyota Prius cares for the environment

• By Ross Kiddie

I HAD the good fortune recently

to listen to a speech from Toyota

New Zealand’s managing director,

Alistair Davis.

The subject was global

warming and the effect that is

having on our planet. Mr Davis’

address was fascinating and way

too comprehensive to detail, but

for the fact that the bottom line

is as a global population we aren’t

doing enough to save our planet

from rising sea water levels and

other issues surrounding climate


Toyota as a global vehicle

manufacturing operation is

well aware of the problems our

future generations face, and

are amping up the production

of more fuel efficient and low

emission vehicles, those which

are less likely to contribute to

the problem greenhouse gas is

creating on our weather patterns.

There is no silver bullet to the

issue without a viable alternative

to the internal combustion

engine; that being the case,

Toyota’s production of hybrid

vehicles is reaching new intensity.

Because of New Zealand’s

tiny appetite for new cars

in comparison to the world

market, we don’t see the volume

of hybrids that are leaving the

And therein lies the ideology

of the hybrid operation. It has

battery power to activate the

electric motor which is initiated

in the first instance; however,

the petrol engine operates

automatically when the electric

motor is under load. The 1.8-

litre petrol engine also provides

the generation needed to keep

recharging the batteries, as well

as some regeneration available on


It’s a complex process, although

in effect it works seamlessly

and efficiently, drive is sent

The benefits make a lot of sense

when you take into account the

fuel usage readouts. Between a

long highway drive and a lot of

suburban running around the

test car recorded a 5.2-litre per

100km (54mpg) average.

That’s nowhere near Toyota’s

best claim of 3.4l/100km (82mpg)

friendly would need to be near

feels less bulky at the rear, and the

ride isn’t as harsh as I remember

Prius to be. The spring and

damper rates are firmish but not

hard, and that relates to positive

body balance in a corner along

with realistic steering feel.

In the wider scheme of things,

other manufacturers have only

dabbled with hybrid production

while Toyota is forever expanding

the number of vehicles available

in hybrid form. The Prius sets an

example as to how it should work


Toyota in New Zealand

recognise the importance of Prius

in our market, even to the extent

of importing pre-owned plug-in

(electric-only) Prius through the

Signature Class operation. It’s

there for those who like the idea

of what the Prius represents but

who don’t relate to the idea of

still relying on petrol as the main

form of propulsion.

56210, Lot 2 DP 391581, Lot 1 DP 56120 and Lot 1 DP 391581), on the southern edge of

Darfield. PC48 proposes amendments to the Selwyn District Plan that include:

to a Living 2 zone

· Incorporate an Outline Development Plan to coordinate and guide the future

development of the site

· Amend policy B4.3.28

· Rules to mitigate the effects of gunshot noise from the Darfield Shooting Centre

· A rule requiring that development and subdivision is undertaken in accordance with

the Outline Development Plan

The plan change request and the assessment of why it is needed can be read at

of caring for one another and our environment,

while empowering others to get

things done efficiently.

Selwyn is the best place in NZ to live, bring

up a family, work, enjoy the outdoors, and

grow old. As a district we need to continue

to look towards the future, and the possibilities

that lie ahead. We need to work together

and acknowledge that when something is

good in one part of Selwyn, it’s good for all

of us. There is a reason Selwyn is growing

so fast. It’s because there is no better place

to be!”

What local people

are saying about

Sam Broughton


“I’ve found Sam great. We can approach

him, his communication is good, and he

listens to what we want. And we seem to get

our results... It’s about staying in touch and

keeping your finger on the pulse... I want a

Mayor that can get along with everybody and

can make Selwyn be Selwyn and bring people



“Sam is someone who gets along with people

of all ages which is important. Young people

don’t want to feel alienated, this is where they

live. Old people have put in their years here

and want somebody who will represent their

interests, who listens and understands what

their situation might be, Sam does that... When

I look at Selwyn I think we are in for change

and the kind of energy that Sam will bring will

be invaluable.”


“As new arrivals to the district we have felt

really welcomed here by Sam... He is really

supportive of both old and new residents

which is really good for a growing district like

Selwyn.. He has helped us get funding for our

play group and is great with families.”


• Brings people together to get things done

• Big picture focus

• Listens to all sides

• Humility to change views as

information grows

• Asks relevant questions

• Committed to lifelong learning


“I’ve known Sam for 12 years now. Started off

at youth group with me and my friends - we’d

go along and have a blast. Four years ago Sam

was our wedding celebrant for Laura’s and

my wedding. I really care for my family and

I want to make sure our water supply is nice

and clean and constant, and our roads are safe.

I think Sam’s commitment to the area and his

enthusiasm is what we really need.”


“I think the council needs a fresh start and

fresh leadership. I think Sam will be the man.

I have seen Sam go way beyond what his job

required, he did the extra work that didn’t

have to be done but he chose to get it done.

I think he will bring that same drive and

dedication to his role as Mayor.”

Rolleston lifestyle village

under construction

A new lifestyle village for people over 55 is currently under construction in Rolleston and

is the first aged care facility to be constructed in the area.

Rolleston’s 150 year history will be reflected in the village,

which is named after William Rolleston’s wife, Mary

Brittan who was a political force in herself, as a local

politician and community leader.

Built by Mike Greer Homes, the Mary Brittan Lifestyle

Village will be different from other retirement villages.

Rather than purchasing a licence to occupy where a

quarter of the resale figure is lost in deferred management

fees, owners will have freehold titles which can be gifted

or mortgaged.

The facility will also offer extras such as emergency call

buttons in each unit, the potential for 24 hour care when

needed, and a site manager who will take care of refuse

collection, quarterly window washing and maintenance

inside a unit if required.

While at least one resident in a house will need to be over

55 years, there will be flexibility for residents who want

to travel knowing their home is secure and the grounds


Mike Greer Homes has built extensively in the area. The

company noted that while the Rolleston community has

become significant, there was nowhere for older people

who wished to downsize or for farming people coming

off the farm and into a community.

Mike Greer Homes are the only providers in the South

Island of a facility of this type with just two similar

facilities in the North Island. The Mary Brittan Lifestyle

Village will be sister to Barton Fields village in Lincoln,

which is also historically linked to its community, with

street names such as Clydesdale Way reflecting the

original Barton farm.

“The average age of those moving into Barton Fields

Lifestyle Village is between 66 and 67 years. Many are still

active and want to come and go from their property yet

still have the support of neighbours, and a complex that

is looked after,” explains Brendon Hill from Mary Brittan

Lifestyle Village Limited.

The Mary Brittan units will sell from $400,000 for a 115

square metre duplex unit. They will have open plan living

with kitchen, dining and lounge spaces, two bedrooms,

toilet, separate bathroom, ensuite and good sized single

garage with laundry, as well as a courtyard and garden

around the unit.

“Stage two at Barton Fields Lifestyle Village has already

been released and stage three is not far away,” explains

Brendon. “At the Mary Brittan Lifestyle Village, the

internal roads are completed with a show home under

construction and due to open early October. Other units

will follow.”

The Mary Brittan Lifestyle Village is accessed by Mary

Brittan Road, at 23 Lowes Road and is a 500 metre stroll

from Rolleston town centre.

To learn more about the Mary Brittan Lifestyle

Village, call Hamish Gemmell on: 347 0212, email: or call into the

Mike Greer Homes office in Rolleston.

There are many things to think about when you’re

considering building a new home. Browsing showhomes

is a fantastic way to get you thinking about practicalities,

needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here are a few

considerations to help spark your planning process.

What is your exterior style?

What kind of homes do you

like? Edgy and contemporary,

classic elegance, country

lodge? Look around and take a mental note

of what you are drawn to most.

What kind of exterior materials do you

like? Would a brick home suit you, or

a modern material board? Once you’ve

worked out the look you like, research what

materials are available and find out about

their durability.

How will you use your house? Do you

do a lot of entertaining? It’s important to

most people to have good indoor/outdoor

flow and attractive, sheltered outdoor

living. Try and imagine your new home in

various seasons.

Landscaping will be an important part of

your project. Look around at other homes

and showhomes and consider what you like

and don’t like. Are you a structured formal

garden type or do you like a contemporary

native style? Start collecting photos from

magazines of gardens you admire.

Sustainability and future-proofing aren’t

just buzzwords anymore. It’s very important

for your new home to be designed to be

environmentally friendly and to take full

advantage of natural attributes such as solar

energy. Research insulation requirements,

solar hot water heating, ventilation options

and new technology to ensure you’re getting

a home that will be affordable to run.

Interior decor is a really exciting part of

your project. This is where showhomes can

really help you get to know current trends,

colours, beautiful furnishings and furniture.

Collect home magazines as well and make

up a folder of interior decors you would love

to emulate.

Also pause to give thought to architectural

components inside. Do you like a raised

ceiling? What kind of finishing do top homes

use and which styles are you are drawn to?

Heating is also a consideration. Have a

look at what showhomes are offering.

Kitchens form the heart of the house.

Showhomes give you insight into the latest

styles, materials and storage facilities


Bathrooms are another big component.

They need to be as luxurious as you can

make them, so start dreaming.


All the benefits,

none of the stress.

Over 15 years experience in managing investment properties

has given us valuable insight into how to maximise returns

and minimise stress for our clients.

Our detailed approach to everything

from selecting the right tenants to

effectively handling rent arrears

and maintenance issues, means our

customers have real peace of mind





knowing their investment is in good

hands. Our exceptionally high occupancy

rates, make for better returns too.
