BUSY TRADE: Phillippa Boa’s deli The Lincoln Pantry is one of a number of new businesses

to have set up in Selwyn in recent times.


District’s growth soars

• By Tom Doudney

IT WAS a case of right place,

right time for Phillippa Boa who

opened her deli The Lincoln

Pantry on Gerald St in May.

The Tai Tapu woman is one

of many business owners who

have grabbed the opportunity

presented by Selwyn’s soaring

growth to set up a business in

the district.

Ms Boa had been planning to

start the business for a while and

she said friends and fellow Lincoln

business owners had helped

convince her to take the plunge.

“I had been looking for a

business opportunity in the area

because I think it’s a lovely community,

you have got residential

growth – I think it was 25 per

cent last year,” she said.

“Then you have got the corporate

market around you with

Plant & Food and the university,

so it seemed like a good hub for a

shop like ours.”

Ms Boa said business was going

well so far.

The district has recorded

another year of strong growth

with the value of non-residential

building consents increasing

by 40 per cent in the 12 months

to June. This week the Selwyn

Times takes an in depth look at

the Selwyn’s booming economy

– see pages 4 and 5.

WITH FOUR days until

the polls close, more than a

quarter of Selwyn’s eligible

voters have already made

their choice for mayor and

district councillors.

Voting closes on Saturday

at noon and people who

are posting in their voting

papers need to do so

tomorrow at the latest.

By 4.20pm on Friday, 25.57

per cent of those eligible

to vote in Selwyn had. The

figure is slightly ahead of the

24.02 per cent who had voted

at this stage in 2013, and

also above the figures for the

same stage in 2010 and 2007


By ward, Malvern (33.85

per cent) and Ellesmere

(31.75 per cent) have had

a significantly higher

proportion of voting papers

returned to date than the

Springs (22.55 per cent) and

Selwyn Central (21.95 per

cent) wards.

Selwyn is part of Local

Government New Zealand’s

Vote2016 campaign, which

aims to lift voter turnout in

local elections to more than

50 per cent for the first time

since the 1980s.

Turn out will need to

lift significantly for that to

happen, with the best result

in the last three elections

being in 2007 when 44.78 per

cent of those eligible to vote

did so.

Last year, 43.41 per cent


After tomorrow, voters

will need to return their

voting papers to one of

the ballot boxes located

at Darfield, Lincoln and

Leeston Library and Service

Centres, and at the district

council headquarters in

No stopping economic growth

Selwyn has continued to

ride an economic high

tide this year, the latest

economic data shows.

Tom Doudney reports

on the growth which just

won’t stop


new highs thanks largely to a

commercial building boom and

the district’s strong retail sector.

Rolleston resident Sinead

McGrath said the growth

had been a big factor in deciding

to start up her hair and beauty

salon Copperhead Road, which

opened about seven weeks


“I have hair dressed in Rolleston

for a few years and built up

quite a big clientele but just with

all the new people coming into

the area and the fact that there

was only three or four other hair

salons I thought there was a lot

of potential to grow a business

out here,” she said.

“It’s going brilliantly.”

Paddy McKay said business in

Darfield was booming and he

was noticing the increased trade

in his own shop.

consents in Selwyn grew by 40

per cent for the year to June.

During this time, consents valued

at $152 million were lodged,

up from $109 million for the

previous 12 months.

District council building

manager Vanessa Beavon said

the figures reflected a number of

factors including the building of

new schools in Rolleston, consents

for new shops to be developed

in Rolleston, West Melton

and Darfield and the continuing

development of new businesses

at Izone.

Non-residential consent values

increased by 16 per cent in

THE TWIN pillars of new

business investment and

agriculture mean Selwyn has

every reason to be confident

about its future growth, an

economic analyst says.

Infometrics senior

economist Benje Patterson

(right) said Selwyn’s

economy was “quite

interesting” compared

to many of its peers in

surrounding districts.

“Even though in some ways

it is a primary sector orientated

district in that it has a lot of

agricultural production, it is also

somewhere where we are seeing a

lot of investment and that

has come about because

of many people flocking

to residential areas that

are growing in Rolleston

and other satellite

communities,” he said.


development in retail, logistical

facilities and industrial space

boded well for the future both

because much of the construction

was still yet to happen and this

development would enable

further economic activity.

“Those factors lead us to be

reasonably optimistic that Selwyn

is going to continue to perform

well – it may not grow at quite

the rate it has recently but even if

it was to grow at two or three per

cent that would still be very good

growth for a regional economy,”

Mr Patterson said.

The recovery in dairy

prices was also cause for


“Dairy prices are not yet

at their historical averages

but they are up 25-30 per

cent in terms of the pay

out forecast compared with a year

earlier and that is going to see

farmers feeling more confident in

their spending patterns,” he said.

Federated Farmers North

Canterbury dairy

chairman Michael

Woodward (left) said

that, apart from some

general maintenance

which had been put off

during the downturn,

farmers were unlikely to

increase their spending much

until next season.

“There is potentially pressure

coming from banks to basically

step up repayments,” Mr

Woodward said.

“So we have got to have some

good $6 plus pay outs to get back

to where those farmers are really

happy again.”

WITH A new shopping centre

soon to open to cater for the

subdivisions which have sprung

up over the last 10 years West

Melton is a poster child for

Selwyn’s runaway growth.

While Rolleston and Lincoln

have grabbed much of the

spotlight, West Melton’s own

population growth over the last

10 years has been phenomenal.

Resident Bruce Russell, who is

deputy chairman of the Selwyn

Central Community Board, said

this was driving demand for new

facilities and businesses.

“In 2006 we had 40 houses

here – today we have got nearly

1000,” Mr Russell said.

“With the new shopping

centre going ahead West Melton

is going to be a little township on

its own.”

The shopping centre, which is

being built by James Lloyd Developments,

is expected to open

early next month.

It features a Four Square

supermarket and 12 other shops

including a restaurant and bar,

Unichem, medical centre, bakery,

real estate agent, hairdresser

and a beauty therapy salon.

director Tony Hickman said

there were only two shops which

did not have tenants arranged

yet and discussions were taking

place to fill those vacancies.

“The phone rings every day

from residents asking when it’s

going to open and what kind of

businesses are going to be there,”

he said.

“It’s what the area has needed

for a long time.”

Mr Russell is also steering

committee chairman for the

planned $6.6 million West Melton

Community and Recreation

Centre which will replace the

community’s ageing hall.

He said the new building

would be a big asset to the area.

“We are still hoping to go out

for tender probably about December

and then have the thing

built in hopefully September or

October 2017,” Mr Russell said.

Councillors hit out

at city counterparts

• By Tom Doudney

DISTRICT councillors have hit

out at their Christchurch counterparts

over the ban on freedom

camping in the city and Banks


The comments came as a

report on freedom camping was

presented at Wednesday’s district

council meeting.

The report predicts increased

numbers of freedom campers in

Selwyn this summer due to the

ban, at a cost of about $30,000

to the district council in extra

cleaning, servicing and waste


District councillor Sam

Broughton said it was “quite

disappointing that Christchurch

has put its head in the sand and

decided that it doesn’t want to

have to deal with freedom camping

which has made it really

hard to come up with a regional

response to freedom campers.”

District councillor John

Morten said it was “typical of a

wishy-washy Christchurch City

Council and their inability to

make a decisive decision.”

District councillor Nigel

Barnett said if the city council

Several other district councillors

Christchurch mayor Lianne

Dalziel declined to respond

to the comments, when approached

by the Selwyn Times.

District councillors also suggested

that more could be done

to encourage freedom campers

to spend their money in ways

which would benefit the Selwyn.

District councillor Pat McEvedy

suggested that freedom

campers could have the opportunity

to make a donation to an

environmental protection and

enhancement fund to offset the

effects of freedom camping.

District councillor Malcolm

Lyall said he had concern for Selwyn’s

tourism hot spots but he

was also interested in what could

be done to connect the campers

with local businesses which

could benefit from their trade.

“Think of them as an opportunity,”

he said.

Pig farm’s bid to renew

resource consent fails

• By Tom Doudney

A PIG farm near Burnham that

has frustrated its neighbours for

four years has had its application

to renew its resource consent


The 20ha farm, run by Chris

and Melanie Bates and their

son Henry since 2012, has until

October 19 to decide if it wants

to appeal the decision of an

independent hearing panel to the

Environment Court.

Neighbours were concerned

about dust and, to a lesser extent,

noise and odour from the farm.

Those who spoke to the Selwyn

Times said they were pleased

about the decision but wary over

the possibility of the Bates making

an appeal.

Neighbour Hamish Cottier

said if the panel’s decision was

upheld, he and his wife would

be able to get back to their

business of training polo horses

and taking riding lessons –

something which he said had not

been possible with the pig farm

next door.

“It’s a step in the right direction

and I would like to have my business

back,” he said.

“But the pigs have to go first.”

The farm, on the corner of

Thompsons Rd and Selwyn Rd,

has about 235 pigs not including


The Bates had been granted a

two-year consent in May 2014

to allow them time to move the

operation to a larger site.

The Selwyn Times was unable

to reach the Bates for comment

but in their application to renew

the resource consent they stated

that they had been unable to find

a suitable alternative location in

spite of investigating about 60

potential sites.

Hearing commissioners

Graham Taylor and John Iseli

were satisfied that odour and

noise were not significant

issues. However, they were not

satisfied that dust issues could be

sufficiently mitigated.

“Our conclusion is that without

irrigation, the pig farm will be

unable to maintain ground cover

on a regular seasonal basis,” their

report stated.

“There is therefore a high

likelihood that dust nuisance

conditions will re-occur in less

than extreme events.”

Irrigation had been

investigated but discounted

by the Bates due to water

unavailability and cost.




However you like it - Our work spans all types of house building

When it comes to scope and style the homes you see here are just the tip of the roofline. With

decades in the business the team at Artisian Homes have worked in all areas of residential

construction. There are obvious differences between building a two-bedroom home compared

to a six bedroom one. Irrespective, our overall approach remains the same.

While we have a sound reputation for carefully crafted home building we also are renowned

for getting the right result no matter what the challenge. Building with difficult access,

looming timelines or tight budgets is just a fact of life for us.

Our house looks great. I have been

very impressed with the Artisan team.

Good build quality, very good progress

& clear open communication.

Thanks heaps! “

~ Peter, Halswell

My husband and I have just moved into a home built by

Artisan Homes. Even though it is a large home we had no

delays with supply or tradesmen. We were concerned when

choosing a builder as we are in the Christchurch rebuild

zone. Rob and his team were honest, very prompt sorting

out any queries and helped with choices throughout the

entire build. We are very pleased with our home. The

quality and service was excellent. If we ever build again, it

will be with Artisan Homes.

Tuesday October 4 2016


In the lead up to local body elections on Saturday, the Selwyn Times has been regularly

putting a question to each of the five Selwyn mayoral candidates. The final question

relates to the 6km of new footpaths constructed by the district council during the current

financial year. The footpaths cost $500,000 in total, with $400,000 of that being met from

investment income and therefore no direct cost to the ratepayer. Lincoln and Prebbleton

are not among the 12 Selwyn communities which will benefit from this. If the district

council is using funds from investments, why shouldn’t some funds be allocated to these

two towns?


councillor Sam



contribution to

the general rate

from households

across the district

is an important income source

for our community and is used

to pay for public good items

including footpaths where a

targeted rate is not appropriate or

difficult to apportion.

Income from investments is

treated in the same way. The

council makes general rate

decisions based on need and

looks to be fair across the district.

There are footpaths in each of the

wards to be completed as part of

the programme.

The footpath programme is

to bring our footpaths up to the

expectations of our community.

The towns with the most work

have been lagging behind our

expected standard and it will be

good to see them upgraded over

the next couple of years.



Debra Hasson:


revenue is used to

support the general

rate and applied

across Selwyn in

‘swings and roundabouts’.

Due to the timing of this money,

post annual plan deliberations

council decided to increase the

footpath budget from $200,000

to $500,000 over 12-18 months,

bringing forward planned

expenditure. A revised list was

prepared by staff reflecting both

submissions and priorities. While

Lincoln and Prebbleton footpaths

were not included, on a ward basis,

footpaths in Tai Tapu were.

Once this $500,000 has been

spent, council plans to consult

with township committees on

council’s Walking and Cycling

Strategy so further footpaths can

be added.

Please remember, to construct

Lincoln’s Town Centre Plan, general

rate funding will apply and

some years ago Prebbleton had its

main street upgraded.


councillor Pat


The footpaths

listed in the

2016/17 footpath

extension programme

are those

that have been requested by various

township committees over a

period of years.

The $400,000 from a Sicon

dividend has made it possible

to reduce the nine year waiting

list. Most of these footpaths are

missing links in the older parts

of these townships. The reason

that there are none in Lincoln

and Prebbleton may mean that

the connections in these two

townships are much better than

most other townships. This

reflects the quality of the recent

developments in these towns that

has provided good linkages and

connections for walking.

It’s important that we respond

to what individual communities

want and request as all of our

townships are unique and have

different requirements.

Elections 16

Deputy mayor

Sarah Walters:

An assessment

was undertaken by

staff based on three

pedestrian benefit

factors to initially

determine priority

across the district and letters were

sent to community committees

asking for further feedback.

Priority was determined on:

those within townships (ie the

benefit to more pedestrians), those

alongside the busiest road

(ie improves safety of pedestrians),

those that filled in a missing link

(ie gaps between existing footpaths

to make routes more continuous).

Since the annual budget was

put together the council has also

adopted the Lincoln Town Centre

Plan which includes improved

pedestrian facilities and requires

significant investment but has

not yet been through the budget


Bill Woods:

This question

is directed to the

other candidates

as I have had no

involvement in

the decision but I

am confident that

there would have been a list of

footpaths to be constructed and

an order of priority drawn up

with the towns of Lincoln and

Prebbleton not making the grade.

What I am also not aware of is

did the councillors question the

order or just accept the list presented

to them without question?

If past actions are anything to

go by the list would have been accepted

without any questioning.

I must emphasise this is only my

assessment as I have no information

to the contrary.

Coe’s final meeting

• By Tom Doudney

MAYOR KELVIN Coe has paid

tribute to a group of district

councillors who “play the ball and

not the man” in his last meeting

in charge.

Mr Coe will step down

following Saturday’s election after

nine years as mayor and 12 years

before that as a district councillor.

In his valedictory speech, he

said that throughout his time as

mayor councillors had shown the

ability to work together and keep

disagreements at the table from

becoming personal – something

which wasn’t always been true of

other councils.

“That’s a real strength of this

council,” he said.

He said the fact that most of the

incumbent district councillors

had been voted back in at the last

two elections showed they had

been doing a good job.

Other district councillors

thanked Mr Coe for encouraging

discussion, which allowed for

consensus decision making.

District councillor Nigel

Barnett, who is also retiring,

said he was proud of the way

the district council had gone

from lagging behind in dealing

with some issues relating to

the district’s runaway growth

MEMBERS OF the Selwyn

Central Community Board

have lamented its loss as it

enters its final days.

The board held its final

meeting last month and will be

officially disestablished following

Saturday’s local government


The district council decided

to disestablish the board after

consultation last year and the

Local Government Commission

supported the decision.

District councillors Jeff

Bland, who took over from

Diane Chesmar as chairman

at the start of the year due to

tensions between fellow board

members, said the district

council had been too quick to

Last days for

get rid of the board.

He would rather have seen

Selwyn Central residents given

the chance to vote on whether

to retain the board as part of

local body elections.

“I’m a great believer in democracy

and I am sad myself

that the board has been dissolved,

I would have liked to

see it continue,” Cr Bland said.

Deputy chairman Bruce

Russell said that in turning

away from community boards

Selwyn was out of step with

other parts of the country.

“In Christchurch the mayor

and councillors there are saying

‘we must give more power

to our community boards

because they are the heart of

the community’.”

Health and safety is an easy

in managing their hazards.

It doesn’t mean that every

We know it’s possible to meet

health and safety obligations as

demonstrated by the five out six

sawmills in the region that we

have assessed. They are managing

their hazards and protecting their

workers and customers from

serious harm.

However, what was witnessed

on-site by WorkSafe inspectors at

Selwyn Sawmills left us no choice

but to seek improvements. The

site had unguarded belt drives,

open chain and sprockets, and

required workers to step over one

machine to get to the next, which

are all examples of hazards with

the potential to threaten life and


WorkSafe is not insensitive to

businesses circumstances and,

in the case of Selwyn Sawmills,

directors had taken the decision

to cease trading, we helped

them work through short term

safety improvements – including

administrative controls like

earmuffs – which would allow

them to continue trading while

the business was wound up.

Health and safety is a part of

business – not an addition to be

tacked on when times are good.

Keeping workers and customers

well away from dangerous

machinery while it is in operation

is the best way to prevent

incidents. Adequate machine

guarding is not optional – it’s a


A lack of money does not

be tempting for businesses to cut

corners, leaving workers exposed

In New Zealand, one person

a week is killed in workplace

accidents, and over 20,000 suffer

serious injury and 600 to 900 die

an early death from work-related

ill-health each year.

Our workplace death and injury

toll is far worse than Australia’s or

the United Kingdom’s. That is not

a record to be proud of.

Additionally, taxpayers are

forking out an estimated $3.5

billion a year on workplace

deaths, injuries and ill-health.

However, the most significant

cost is that paid by the loved ones

who pick up the pieces following

a workplace accident.

Residents respond to

business owner Lynn

Townsend’s recent

column in the Selwyn

Times which criticised

the planned removal of

car parks on Gerald St in

favour of a cycleway

Alan Wise, of Lincoln –

Does Lynn Townsend

honestly believe that people

go to the Lincoln supermarket

because it has a large car park

and how is this an argument for

the district council to provide

on-street parking? Does a

business such as Coffee Culture

think their coffee is so ordinary

that their customers will go

elsewhere if they can’t park on

Gerald St?

I thought business owners

were more astute and realised

that more business comes from

people walking past the door

than driving past.

I fully support the district

council’s plans for Gerald St.


Change can’t come soon

enough and I couldn’t agree

more with Don Babe’s views.

Pat Palmer, of Prebbleton

– Lynn Townsend should be

asking the district council ‘how

many cyclists will use the proposed

cycleway along Gerald

St and how much will it cost?’

And the council should have

considered this, and already

told us.

WINNERS ARE GRINNERS: Lincoln University student Zoe Harty, who won the Miss

Famous Grouse contest. She will spend the $2000 prize money on clothes and an

overseas trip.

Some of us commented on

the fact that even though there

is obviously not any repair

work happening it would be

good if they were continuing

to do some basic maintenance

of the church to keep it in a

good state.

Earlier this year I was there

again for an internment and

noticed that there are weeds

in the gutters and other things

that will not be helping with

the overall condition of the

church and one would think

could be looked after – unless

it is a safety issue.

Lincoln resident Todd

Nicholls writes about the

Selwyn Times’ coverage

of the Miss Famous

Grouse competition on its

front page last week

I am a long-term Lincoln

resident. I have been a

journalist and a lawyer for

over 20 years. I am also the

father of two young daughters.

I was horrified by your front

page story Beauty and Brains

(September 27, 2016).

For just a moment I thought

that we had gone back to the

dark ages. Bad enough that the

Lincoln Hotel had to advertise

this sexist rubbish (posing as

entertainment) for weeks beforehand

outside its premise.

For your otherwise excellent

newspaper to highlight this

backward event on its front

page is an insult to not only

the progress that we have

made as a community but the

role of women in our society.

Your readers, and my two

young daughters, deserved

so much better.

Rolleston resident

Jonathan Scott writes

about the Pest Control

Research factory in

Rolleston planning to

manufacture 1080 bait

Myself and other Rolleston

residents wish to express our

concerns that PCR keep their

external roller door open

during operation.

Open Day Announcement

St John The Evangelist Catholic Church Leeston, is proud to announce its

long awaited reopening following the completion of phase one, earthquake

strengthening works.

Although the district

council have advised that PCR

cannot manufacture 1080

bait yet, we believe PCR are

demonstrating their lack of

concern for the community by

engaging in poor manufacturing

practices, which, if occurring

during active poison bait

manufacture, would put the

community at risk and be in

breach of their consent.

As the spokesman for the

1080 Free Rolleston Facebook

page, we would like to see PCR

take these concerns into consideration,

rather than simply

responding with ‘we are not

making bait yet.’

I suggest PCR is leaving

the external door up in

order to counteract the

effect of solar heating or

manufacturing temperatures

occurring during the day.

We want to understand if

this is PCR’s only method of

cooling their building during

pre-feed manufacture, how

is PCR prepared to react if

they proceed to active bait


Some residents are also concerned

that leaving the factory

door open is a security risk

that PCR should address in

order to safeguard their stock

of poison.

If PCR were willing to make

a gesture to allay the community’s

concerns, I would be

prepared to meet with PCR

management to discuss the

matter further.

A LEESTON man is helping

make communities in the

Solomon Islands safe by clearing

explosive remnants of World

War 2.

Able Diver Craig Smith has

been taking part in Operation

Render Safe, a multinational

operation led by the Australian

Defence Force to dispose safely

of unexploded World War 2


“It’s been fantastic to help

them out and they are also our

main source of information,”

ADR Smith, from the Royal

New Zealand Navy diving and

mine countermeasures ship

HMNZS Manawanui, said.

“The Solomon Islanders have

been living in an area scattered

with tonnes of explosive

ordnance for the past seven

decades,” he said.

“Removing these hazards will

give them a safe environment to

live in and the kids will be able

to jump in the water without being

afraid of injuring or killing


In the first week of the Render

Safe operation, the combined

multinational teams recovered

1389 items, weighing 3.7 tonnes,

of unexploded ordnance.

The team of divers from

Manawanui and explosive ordnance

disposal experts from the

Canadian Defence Force have

recovered and detonated safely

about 60 unexploded munitions,

including a 250-pound bomb,

during the operation.

ADR Smith joined the navy

Plans to rebuild historic cottage

• By Tom Doudney

A FORMER Rolleston cottage,

which may have been built as

early as 147 years ago, could be

rebuilt following the excavation

of the site where it once stood.

The Dynes Rd site was excavated

18 months ago, with an old

land deed revealing that it was

almost as old as the town itself.

Rolleston will celebrate its 150th

anniversary in 11 days time.

Records showed that the

crown sold the land to K. Kelly

in 1869. A Witter Archaeology

report concluded that, while

that did not necessarily date the

building, “such a structure might

be expected to follow soon after.”

The site’s owner, former district

councillor Annette Foster,

said she and her family were

in the process of having plans

drawn up to rebuild the cottage

based on a photograph sourced

from the Canterbury Museum.

The photograph, taken in 1928,

had appeared in a 2007 book

by George Singleton about the

former Ellesmere county.

Mrs Foster and her late husband,

David, had deliberately retained

ownership of the cottage

site on Dynes Rd when they sold

the surrounding 121ha for the

Faringdon subdivision, Foster

Park and Rolleston College.

“We thought it was really important

for Rolleston to actually

have something which related

to its history, because Rolleston

wasn’t really a place where people

settled, it was a transient area

and a lot of the land was owned

by people in Leeston, Springston

and Lincoln and was used as

their dry land run-off,” she said.

AS IT WAS: This photograph of the former cottage was taken

in 1928 and later appeared in a 2007 book about the former

Ellesmere county. Mrs Foster and her family plan to rebuild it.


“I think you would struggle to

find anything in Rolleston that is

older than this site.”

Excavations unearthed artefacts

dating to the 1880s, including

Rhine pattern china, glass,

wire, metal items and the remnants

of household furniture.

Mrs Foster said her intention

was to hold occasional open days

once the cottage was restored so

people could view it.

The cottage had been originally

built as a sod cottage, but

then was built on to with cob,

which was unusual.

It was thought to have

belonged to the Kelly family

who owned the property at the


Before his death more than a

year ago, Mr Foster, whose family

had owned the property for

75 years, had been able to recall

as a child seeing a mound of sod

with remnants of a chimney

where the house stood.

Although the excavations

were carried out 18 months ago,

the report into the site was only

completed about three months

Volunteers wanted for Hororata Highland Games

CLAN HORORATA: Volunteers enjoying lunch after packing up

following last year’s Hororata Highland Games.

THE CALL has gone out – it is

time to assemble Clan Hororata.

The Hororata Highland Games

would not be possible without the

support of its many volunteers,

and this ‘clan’ will be vital to

ensuring the success of the event

on November 5.

The volunteers come from

within Selwyn, wider Canterbury,

as far north as Auckland

and south to Dunedin; all to be

part of Clan Hororata.

Not only are 180 volunteers

needed on event day, it takes a big

team to transform the Hororata

Domain for the games and then

to pack up again on Sunday.

Christchurch resident Paul Kofoed

has volunteered at the games

since its inception.

“Although I have never lived in

Hororata or the Selwyn District

I consider myself a local at the

Hororata Highland Games. The

community spirit is so overwhelming

I get caught up in it

even more each year,” Mr Kofoed


“I attend many major events

and I can honestly say the

Hororata Highland Games is one

of the best, from the chairman

of the trust to the hundreds of

volunteers; they are all passionate

and proud of what they achieve.”

As a member of the clan, all

volunteers receive an adult pass

to the event plus an invite to the

Prime Smoke Clan Hororata

barbecue held afterwards.

Volunteers receive lunch each

day with plenty of homemade

baking to fill the gaps and this

year will get a free Clan Hororata

T- shirt, courtesy of the district


The volunteers also get to vote

on how a $4000 community fund

is allocated to four nominated

community groups. The groups

who have been nominated this

year are the Hororata Parish,

Hororata Golf Club, Hororata

Scouts and Windwhistle School/


•Anyone interested in

becoming part of Clan

Hororata can email games@

•Discounted early bird

tickets to the games are

available now from www.

CultureFest brings

the world to Selwyn

Selwyn’s first ever CultureFest will feature music, dancing, performances, food and crafts from 20

different cultures.

CultureFest is a free event which showcases the district’s cultures with free performances, fun

activities, craft and food stalls, along with activities for kids like a mega slide, SNAG inflatable golf,

bouncy castles and pedalmania.

CultureFest will build on the successful Lincoln Multi-Cultural Festival. CultureFest will be held

every year with the venue moving between Rolleston and Lincoln in alternating years. Many local

groups have joined CultureFest to share their culture with our community.

The event is part of the Rolleston 150th anniversary celebrations which feature a free show on

Saturday 15 October from 10am-4pm, on the corner of Jones and Hoskyns Roads, with displays

including traction engines, vintage cars, motorbikes, tractors, military displays, fire engines and

shearing. Other events planned during Rolleston’s 150th celebrations include an opening evening,

kids movie, dine and dance and street parade.

CultureFest’s activity programme includes performances from local Indian, Chinese, Polish

(pictured), Russian, Italian and Greek communities, as well as a Scottish flash mob. There will be a

range of fun activities for everyone to take part in and learn more about different cultures including

Turkish ceramics, Oriental ink painting and Bhangra (Indian dancing).

Cuisines on the menu at CultureFest include Indian, Iranian, Jordanian, German, Malaysian,

Polish, Russian, Tibetan, Singaporean, South African and England (high tea and scones).

CultureFest takes place on Saturday 15 October from 10am-4pm in Rolleston (on the corner of

Jones and Hoskyns Roads). It is presented by the Council with support from the Christchurch

Multicultural Council, Canterbury Migrants Centre, The Rotary Club of Lincoln, Rolleston

Newcomers Network and Smokefree Aotearoa NZ 2025.

Darfield garden waste day

On Saturday 29 October between 10am and 4pm, Selwyn residents

will have the opportunity to dispose of green garden waste at

Hawkins Pit. The pit is located off Cullens Road just east of Bangor

Road, about five kilometres from Darfield.

This is a great chance to get rid of garden prunings, tree trimmings

or weeds over springtime. It costs $5 per car, $10 per ute or single

axle trailer and $15 per twin axle trailer to dispose of garden waste

on the day. General rubbish, soil, flax, cabbage tree leaves, trees

or branches over 10cm in diameter can’t be disposed of through

this service. Payment is by cash only (no EFTPOS is available).

Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Malvern Lions Club.

A greenwaste disposal day is also planned for Ellesmere on

19 November.

Mayor says farewell

Mayor Kelvin Coe retires next week after 21 years on the Council and

nine years as Mayor. We spoke to him about his time with Council.

How has Selwyn changed since you joined the Council in 1995?

Selwyn’s population was around 25,000 and it has now more than

doubled and is about 54,000. We have changed from a largely rural

district to having significant towns as well as rural communities. We

now have a lot more infrastructure like sewerage and community

facilities like libraries, new community centres and the Aquatic Centre.

What have you enjoyed during your time on Council?

The opportunity to meet great people. There are a large number of

volunteers who run halls, sports, and community groups who make

a huge contribution to Selwyn. I really appreciate all the assistance I

have had from the community, Councillors and staff in my role and I

would like to thank them all for their support.

What do you consider have been the Council’s biggest

achievements while you have been Mayor?

Our achievements have been made by the whole of Council,

Council staff, other Councillors all working together with the

community. Dealing with September 2010 earthquake was both a

major challenge and a significant achievement. I think we coped

well as our civil defence operations centre was running early the

next morning and responded well and nearly all of the roading

damage was fixed promptly afterwards. The Council, and in

particular our planning team, have also responded well to the post –

earthquake challenges of growth. The Urban Development Strategy

was already in place identifying where new development could

occur and Izone development was under way so the groundwork

was in place, and staff had an enabling attitude to helping people

set up homes and businesses which allowed this to happen.

On the roads this week

Road repairs are planned on Leaches Road and Bealey Road (between Telegraph and Essendon

Roads), and work is planned on North Rakaia Road and Bridge Street. Traffic controls will be in place

on these roads. Footpath and kerbing repairs will take place in some areas within Izone. Maintenance

grading will take place in the Hororata, Leeston, Dunsandel, Norwood, Greendale and Coalgate areas.

With the increasing trend toward on

Fusion of east

and west

in designer’s


• By Annabelle Dick


Canterbury student Elaine

Jiang is on a mission to

mix up the local fashion

scene with her eastern

meets western designs.

The 33-year-old was one

of 12 students to showcase

their collection at

Ballantynes Fashion Week

last Saturday.

Mrs Jiang is in her third

year of study towards a

Bachelor of Design degree

in fashion technology and


“I like making things

by hand and because of

my character I’m not very

talkative, so I thought I’ll

go into an industry where I

don’t have to talk to many

people. That way I could

do things by myself instead

of relying on a team or

other people,” she said.

Her garments have a

strong Japanese-influence

and her pieces are mostly

targeted towards the

modern eastern woman.

“I’m Asian and we are

shorter so the silhouette

of my garments are

different because eastern

and western bodies curve

differently. So my clothes

better fitting for us . . . they

are quite loose, relaxed and


Originally from China,

Mrs Jiang moved to

New Zealand to be with

her Christchurch-based

husband and pursue a

career in fashion.

She moved to

Christchurch on February

19, 2011 – just three days

before the earthquake

that would change the city


“That was my first

experience of New

Zealand. I was really

jet-lagged due to the

time difference, but I was

planning on going to

the city to see the Christ

Church Cathedral the day

of the quake. I was lucky

because I was changing my

clothes just before leaving

and then the earthquake

happened . . . I didn’t get to

see any of Christchurch,”

Mrs Jiang said.

While her cultural

roots play a big part in

her aesthetic, her move

to Christchurch has

influenced the garments

she creates.

“When I came here,

I realised people are a

lot more relaxed than in

China. I want to keep my

style from my background,

but I’d like to fuse them

both and design items that

Kiwis would like,” she said.

Mrs Jiang is now busy

working on her end of year

collection Soft Shell, which

is based on a series of

photographs of some of the

poorest children in 1900s’


The collection also

includes elements of

Japanese fashion she

noticed while overseas

earlier this year.

“I’ve put old-England

and new-Japanese together

for my collection,” she


Mrs Jiang plans on

launching her own label

after graduating.

We have showcased the new

ivyblu striped off the shoulder

‘Brenda top’ ($169) with Vargo

‘Unfold Bloomer’ pants ($189)

This look is classic and

sophisticated and the

off the shoulder style

is more flattering than

you may imagine.

Also photographed is

the Vassalli Jean skirt

in Barcelona colourway

($119) with Vassalli white tee ($95) and

Vassalli washed denim jacket ($145). This is

a great casual weekend look that can

take you anywhere. Vassalli are famous

for their comfortable well fitting pants

but are increasingly expanding their

repertoire and offering much more

besides pants.

The stunning Vargo outfit photographed

shows the always striking black and white

combination. The off white jacket is a

perfect style to team up with dresses,

skirts or pants. ($245)

The striking Vargo “Execute midi” skirt is a stunning new

take on a classic pencil style and is very flattering with its

assymetric hemline. ($175). Under the jacket is the “leather

look ‘Revive Cami ‘ ($119)

Another pretty ivyblu ‘Annie’ dress ($179) is pictured here in

red & cream stripes with lovely lace detail sleeves. This gorgeous wee dress can

be dressed up or down and is a nice easy fit being shift shape. Dress it up with

sandals or down with sneakers and you are ready to go!

Lincoln Community Care Ph: 03 325 2007 Prebbleton Spring Fling 2016


It is six years since the Ellesmere Spring Fling

was first held and this year promises to be just as

enjoyable as that of previous years.

The Ellesmere Spring Fling will again be held at

David Hobbs’ stunning, award winning Broadfield

Garden. This garden, which covers ten acres, is

of national significance and world class standard

making it the perfect setting for a garden party

with a difference.

“The Spring Fling is a great day out,” says Janice

Burnett, Chairperson of Community Care Lincoln.

“Visitors can enjoy savoured arts and craft stalls,

food and live music while wandering through

David’s landscaped grounds.”

Locals and those from further afield will have

an opportunity to purchase local fresh produce,

artisan foods, crafts and plants. Devonshire teas

and quality food will also be served for people to

partake while enjoying live easy listening music

with the gardens offering plenty of places to sit

and relax in beautiful surroundings.

Those keen on gardening ¬¬or interested in

growing their own vegetables, will have the

opportunity to watch demonstrations by The Seed

Warehouse while Andrea from Andreas Florist

will be showing people how to make eye catching

flower arrangements.

“Principal sponsors, Intelligro from Weedons are

also an ideal fit for the event,” says Janice.

Intelligro will be showcasing a selection of their

products and have some garden fertilisers for sale

while their team will be there to talk to people

about their gardens.

David Hobbs will also be providing garden tours,

giving guests an opportunity to learn more about

the species growing at Broadfield Gardens.

With so much on offer, those attending are sure to

have a fun day out while also gaining knowledge

and inspiration for their own gardens.

The Ellesmere Spring Fling is the sole fundraiser for

Lincoln & Districts Community Care Association

Inc. (LDCC). It is completely run by volunteers with

tremendous support from local businesses that

include Lincoln New World, Paper Plus stores at

Hornby and Merivale, Dave Burnett of Feedco,

the Selwyn District Council, Pub Charity Limited,

Digital Print Lincoln and The Warehouse Rolleston.

“We’re extremely grateful to have ongoing

community support especially the members of

Lincoln Rotary who assist with running the day, no

job is too big,” adds Janice.

Future Leaders from Lincoln University, local

exercise and walking group members, along

with Community Care’s staff, board members and

volunteers will also be helping on the day.

The Ellesmere Spring Fling country garden

experience will be held on Sunday, 9th October

between 11am and 4pm at Broadfield Garden,

250 Selwyn Road, Broadfield with ticket sales on

the day: adults $20, children free.

Christmas is just around the corner and if you’re thinking of ways

to tame traditions and reduce stress this year, 12 Crafty Days of

Christmas offers something fresh and fun for everyone.

Nin McKay is passionate about crafts and has developed a series

of themed workshops where participants will learn techniques to

make four craft projects. Other than bringing an apron and the odd

household item, you don’t need to worry about buying the materials

as these are all included in the course fee and are supplied on the day.

The next two workshops are coming up in October and November

2016 with locations in either Rolleston or Lincoln. This is a chance

to try your hand at making soy candles in a glass jar, paint dipped

wooden spoons, block printed tea towel and infused oils.

Adults of all ages can come along to craft and chat and the end result

not only means you have a finished product to give to a loved one at

Christmas, but a learned skill you can use again and again.

Flowering powerhouses create colour

More flowers anyone? Rachel Vogan says to create time and space for colour in between vegetable planting

New double-flowered petunia

‘Surfinia Double Salmon’.

When you are not up to your armpits in the

vege patch, look to pots, baskets and tubs

to add a blast of colour to the garden. These

containers do for the garden what a scarf

or a necklace does to a lady’s outfit; they

punctuate and create focal points, soften hard

edges and brighten anything dull and grey.

This summer should be all about flowers,

and the earlier your summer pots and tubs are

planted the better. Hitting the shops now are new

hybrids of petunia and calibrachoa; flowering

powerhouses that take a bit of beating, with

most of them delivering blooms continuously

from late spring until the end of autumn. Look

for this brand new double-flowered petunia

‘Surfinia Double Salmon’ – for six months

of the year all it wants to do is flower.

Just coming into bloom, the Bacopa Epic

series will stay this way until May next year.

Crop Protection

Young seedlings and cuttings appreciate

some TLC when young. If you don’t

have room for a glasshouse, mock up

something at home (Kristina Jensen

shows us how on page 51). Maybe prop

up an old window on some bricks to

provide some shelter, or look at a mini

propagating house, which is ideal for

using indoors when sowing a few packets

of seeds. The larger portable outdoor cold

frames are brilliant, too. Just remember

that once seedlings are starting to form

their first sets of true leaves they need

plenty of air movement. Make sure you

can prop the door open or open a vent so

the young plants don’t fry on a hot day.


Plant potatoes and yams now. Both

need a well-dug soil in a warm

sunny spot, and remember to blend

in potato food prior to planting.

Sow rows of carrots, radish, parsnip

and beetroot; these are all best

sown directly into the ground. In

regards to lettuces, jam in as many

as you can, and not just in the

garden – they thrive in pots, tubs

and baskets. Seeds can be sown,

too, and will germinate readily

uncovered outside, so save your

precious room in the greenhouse

or on the windowsill for frostsensitive

seeds like tomato, chilli

and basil. To make sure you get the

biggest and juiciest asparagus spears

this season, sprinkle round some

vegetable fertiliser now and give beds

a drench with a liquid fertiliser.


How is your patch looking? If

you haven’t done so already, cut

off all those dead leaves from

any older plants and any rogue

side runners. Add a generous

handful of strawberry fertiliser

around the base of each plant.

For new patches, it’s vital you

prepare the soil first by digging

it over and adding strawberry

mix, this give the roots the best

possible chance to spring into

action. The cold nights trigger

the plants to produce flowers,

so the earlier you plant them

the better. No need to wrap

this crop in cotton wool.

In Flower: Bacopa

Epic Series

If you are after a plant that

forms a neat dome, with a soft

tumbling habit that will cascade

over the edge of a basket,

window box or tub, then look

for these wee gems. Bacopas are

making a comeback and this

new Epic series look marvellous.

With increased flowering ability

and tolerance to hot weather,

their colours appeal too, coming

in a range of deep pink, blue and

white. They look a picture in the

shops now – hunt a few down.

These perky wee numbers would

help punctuate any summer

wedding with a twinkle of colour.

gardening without guesswork


I planted a lot of daffodil bulbs in winter but was disappointed to see mainly

only leaves came up and no flower? I planted them with compost and just

assumed I would have a brilliant display of flowers?

Sorry to hear that. I can imagine you are

Answer: very disappointed! Unfortunately there

isn’t much we can do now to fix

that, but here are some tips to help prevent it happening

again. Daffodils make their flower buds straight after

they have finished flowering in the spring. To help

ensure they flower the following season, it is important

to follow these practices:

1) Remove the spent flowers so they don’t set any seed

2) Give the daffodils plenty of water

3) Top dress with Potash fertiliser

4) Do not remove the leaves or tie them in a knot to make the

garden look tidy. Leave them there as these will deliver nutrients to

the bulb to prepare it for the next spring

All the best with the next season! If you find your bulbs are planted

in an area that isn’t getting much sun, and doesn’t have good

drainage, you may need to rethink your chosen spot. If you need

any other information, please let us know!

There is a narcissus bulb fly that sometimes attacks

daffodils, which results in leaves and no flowers.

If you have noticed flies around the daffodils, treat

these with the same insect granules that you would

garden centre. Do the treatment after the leaves have

died down, and make sure that the hole where the

plant is, is covered so the insect cannot get to the

Plants to give your summer meal flavour

• By Tod Palenski


gardening article on a couple of


I typically try and come up

with some kind of unique angle

or theme to get things going. But

this month I’m just going to get to

the point. Chives, coriander and

rocket are really handy (and tasty)

plants to have in the garden.

Individually, they’re just such

great herbs to have accessible for

fresh cooking.

And what do you know? Your

local nurseries are likely to have

chives, coriander and rocket in

a mixed bundle. Mixed bundles

are fantastic because they provide

you with a smaller number of

seedlings per herb, which means

you should end up with about the

right amount of each, without any

taking over your garden.

Once you’ve got your rocket,

chives and coriander plants you

need to find somewhere to grow


Chives are the easiest to grow.

The only thing you need to

remember – is where you planted


Rocket is the next easiest to

grow. It likes sun. At this time of

the year it can be grown out in

full sun.

But when we hit summer

it pays to choose an area that

doesn’t get hit by the midday heat

to avoid sending your plants to


Dig through some compost into

the area you plan to plant. Or add

some good quality potting mix,

if you’re planning on planting in

large containers (around 25cm

or more deep). Then plant each

rocket seedling around 20cm

apart. Don’t forget to watch out

for snails around your rocket.

Lastly, coriander. We know that

this fragrant herb can be a little

tricky to grow. But it’s so worth

it if you get it right. My top tip

for growing coriander is to plant

when the weather is steady. This

will prevent it bolting from the

change in temperature that can

occur when we change seasons.

Plant it where you would plant

your rocket – full sun before

summer and in partial sun during


Just make sure it’s in freedraining,

aerated soil. Mound the

soil up and plant the seedling on

top – this will help ensure the soil

is free-draining.

Remember to water lightly all

your coriander, chive and rocket

TASTY: Chives (left) and rocket are

easy to grow, but remember where

you have planted them.

seedlings once planted. And don’t

let the soil dry out around your

coriander as this could cause it

to bolt. Water all the plants in the

morning to allow the water to dry

off during the day and prevent


Remove old or yellowed leaves

from your rocket and coriander

to help your plants continue to

flourish. And harvest the leaves

often to stop them going to seed

too early and encourage new

leaves to shoot up. And again, if

you want a continuous supply,

keep planting new seedlings every

few weeks.

Lastly, enjoy your herbs and

let me know if you have a good

recipe that combines all three.

Primary School pupils won the green

movie made about the school rules.

The theme of this year’s awards was ‘be

the change – thinking about the impact

you can have on your community

and ultimately the world.’ The West

Rolleston pupils put together an iMovie

with pupils creating a pretend news

report about how the schools rules

were making a difference around the

world. The rules are based on values

such as honesty, using only positive

words and sharing. Pictured are: Top

Exciting times ahead

for social workers

Fiona Maurice is focused on whanau. Midway through her final year work

placement at Child, Youth and Family, the Ara Bachelor of Social Work student

spoke of her hopes for the future for her family and for all Māori families.

Working for the Māori Women’s

Welfare League, as researcher and then as

kaiawhina, in 2011 to 2012, Fiona loved

community work but realised she need a

qualification to progress and be even more

effective. Coming to Ara was, she says, “the

best move I ever made”.

“I’ve learnt more

about myself and

what my strengths are

and I’ve realised that

determination and

perseverance are good

skills to have.

“I believe this

qualification will give

me more opportunities. I

want to register as a social

worker so that employers

will look at me more


Working for Child, Youth and Family,

the social work agency of the Ministry of

Social Development, “didn’t faze” Fiona.

“I put my hand up to go there. In terms of

learning I can link a lot of my studies, such

as attachment theory and developmental

theory to the work, but I am also learning

a lot in the office about the systems and


It’s an exciting time to be at CYF, she

says. “The agency is in a transformation

phase. They will have a new identity next

year and new processes. To be part of that

wave of social work is exciting.”

Her focus is clear. “It’s whanau that’s the

perspective I come with.”

Proud of her heritage, she

affiliates to Tuahiwi Marae near

Rangiora and Nga Ruahine

(South Taranaki tribe). It’s

an exciting time for New

Zealanders, she says, because

qualifications now involve

learning about the Treaty of

Waitangi. “More and more

we will see that knowledge

in action. Most of the social

work students want to learn

bicultural skills, but I already

had that.”

Receiving the Ara Eke Panuku

award last year and other scholarships have

been hugely helpful and Fiona says support

is there for other Māori students to enter

social work – a perspective the profession

badly needs to better respond to Māori

clients. “There are not enough of us! Only

three started in my first year group of 55!”

Fiona has made it a personal challenge

to share her story and inspire others to

consider social work.

Southern Institute

of Technology

Ensuring a safe

work place

Monique VanRooyen is

a perfect example of how

the Southern Institute of

Technology (SIT) assists

full time workers to move

forward in their career.

Working in

administration at

SIT for nine years,

Monique jumped at the

opportunity to upskill

in her Administration

Management career with

the National Certificate

in Project Management

(Level 4) in June 2016.

The 18-week blended

delivery course not

only offered the content

she needed to take a

step forward, but its

flexible hours made both

studying and working

viable, she said.

“The biggest benefit

is being able to do the

course outside of work

hours and also the

fact that lectures are

fortnightly, which allows

time to complete each


Though only half way

through the Project

Management certificate,

she said it had already

increased her confidence

to talk in front of large

groups and had given her

Monique VanRooven

a better understanding of

business dealings.

“I enjoy the tutor’s

lecturing style, he has a lot of industry

based knowledge and experience in

this area which enables us to grasp the

concepts [of Project Management] a lot


Monique said she would “definitely”

recommend the course to anyone

interested in a managing environment on

any level, especially those looking to excel

in their existing role.

LeARNINg fIRST aid is not only a

part of ensuring a safe work place, but also

an integral part of our engagement with

the wider community. We all learn the

necessary skills to ensure that in times of

emergency we are able to assist our work

colleagues, but are we able to take these

skills home, into the community or on to

the sports field?

Not all work places are the same and

the injury risk for each place can be wide

and variable. The office attended by

administrators does not carry the same

risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance

from a regular ambulance service. It is

therefore essential that you pick the right

first aid course to suit all of your activities –

both professional and social.

Take, for example, an office worker who

does not have a high risk work environment

and whose concern might be to ensure

that they can deal with minor cuts and

superficial injuries, or the ability to perform

effective CPR. These skills can be achieved

on a course of eight hours duration and

would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to

a sports field either as a spectator or player

when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402

and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not

cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye

injuries, hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of

the work place, in fact one in three injuries

occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen.

New Zealand children are twice as likely

to die through injury as children who live

in Australia. They mostly die as a result

of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the

home. fatalities from leisure and sport are

not far behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the

additional unit standard 6400 and provides

a wide knowledge base for medium to high

risk environments. This course covers many

of the skills required to deal with the most

common injuries, such as falls (which can

result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and

dealing with complex scenes such as motor

vehicle accidents.

If you are not sure on the course best

suited to your needs, ask your accredited

first aid training provider. They can explain

the course content and give you options

that will best suit your needs. Look beyond

the workplace and consider your family and

your location. Check that you have a good

quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with

replenished items, and that everyone knows

where it is located.

2016 Spring Show - Celebrating Rural Women

Saturday 15th October – Gates open 8am – Ellesmere Showgrounds, Leeston

President puts focus

on role of women

As the first woman president of the

Ellesmere A & P show committee, Paula

McIlraith wants to acknowledge the role of

woman in our community over the decades

– hence the theme of the 146th Ellesmere

Show, ‘Celebrating Rural Woman’.

“We have some amazing women in our

community who have made a difference in

peoples’ lives,” says Paula.

“There are those that have supported

youth through education, culture and

sport, and often acted unknowingly as role

models to these young people. The likes

of Cath and Rosalie Brown come to mind

and many others who have given their time

selflessly. There are also women before

their time such as Dr Helen Dougal who

practised in Leeston in the 1950s and later

Dr Molly Prendergast.

“Going back, there was the contribution

and effort of rural women during wartime.

My own mother, like many others, farmed

the land whilst others ran the services

allowing them, in a time of necessity, to

prove they were capable and adaptable.

“These characteristics are still part

of the modern-day rural woman who,

among traditional roles, may also be the

extra labour unit when things are busy

Paula McIlraith, president of the Ellesmere

A&P Show.

and for many they are an integral part of

a farming partnership which has had to

adapt to a changing farming environment,

especially with regards to accounting and

She has her fingers crossed for a sunny

show day and hopes that everyone takes a

moment to reflect on some of those unsung

them know they are appreciated.

Plenty to enjoy

at Ellesmere’s

upcoming show

The Ellesmere A&P Showgrounds

will once again be the focal point for the

community on Saturday October 15 as

young and old from across the district

flock to enjoy the Ellesmere Agricultural &

Pastoral Association’s annual show.

This year sees the 146th running of the

show, with the theme being ‘Celebrating

Rural Women’. All the traditional activities

and displays will be featured including

the always-popular farmyard display

sponsored by Structurewise, which will

again be a major attraction at the show.

The tent will be filled with as many kinds

of animals as possible, with one of the main

draw cards the eels from Lake Ellesmere.

Other animals on display will include

chickens, ducks, turkeys, pigs, lambs and

calves, while the hourly ‘needle in the

haystack’ lolly scramble will keep everyone


The Farmlands feature tent will house

a ‘Celebrating Rural Women’ display, the

Wearable Arts, with interesting guest

speakers an additional attraction.

Donkeys, alpaca, sheep and wool

displays, the excitement of the dog trials,

wood chopping, highland dancing, vintage

and modern machinery, wearable arts, live

music and much more will add to the fun

and excitement of the day.

Pupils from the four local primary

schools, Dunsandel, Leeston and

Southbridge, will compete in the Country

Kids AgriSports competition. Teams of

three will go head-to-head in a number

of farm-related activities and team work.

Activities such as catching greasy pigs,

feeding calves, colouring lambs and sack

races in wool packs are sure to provide

entertainment and hilarity for contestants

and spectators alike.

Gates open to the public at 8am, with

admission price for adults priced at $15,

children 12 and under get in free and

family passes $40 for two adults and up to

three children. Cash only will be accepted

at the gate, but Eftpos facilities will be

2016 Spring Show - Celebrating Rural Women

Saturday 15th October – Gates open 8am – Ellesmere Showgrounds, Leeston

Rural women to

be highlighted

Craft, machinery

and sideshows

in Feature Tent

The feature tent sponsored by Farmlands is definitely

keeping with the Ellesmere A & P Show’s theme

‘Celebrating Rural Women’.

This year the Wearable Arts parade

and competition will be staged with

parades starting at 11am and 1.45pm.

The brief to exhibitors was; “You

choose, whatever aspect of a rural

woman’s life through the decades that

you would like to portray”. This year

the Wearable Art Apron class has

been introduced, which promises to

be entertaining, and even humorous.

Also featuring in the tent will be

some entertaining speakers. These

include the New Zealand Women’s

Rowing Eight coxswain Francie

Turner, fresh from her trip to the

Rio Olympics, and the recognised

sculptor and artist Sharon Earl, both

of whom will provide some insights

into their interesting lives and their

rural origins in the Ellesmere area.

You are encouraged to visit the

feature tent, where you are promised

a trip down memory lane, which

The trade sites will comprise a

range of businesses from banks to

real estate to fertiliser and power

distribution companies.

On the machinery sites visitors

will see the latest in agricultural

equipment and technology, as

well as new car sales, irrigation

companies, mowers and fertiliser

spreading. It’s a chance to see the

latest equipment and the advances

in farming technology. There will

also be a large selection of vintage cars and

agricultural machinery.

2016 Spring Show - Celebrating Rural Women

Saturday 15th October – Gates open 8am – Ellesmere Showgrounds, Leeston

Changes in the

equestrian section

This year there are some changes in ring layout and

new classes added, with organisers always looking to

improve the equestrian aspect of the show. The main

change will be the miniature/shetland and donkey

ring, which will now be in the south-west corner past

the vintage machinery area.

The first of two new classes will be held in the

main ring around 11am to showcase the ridden

thoroughbred. With a lot more focus on what happens

to horses after they finish their racing careers, this

is generating support within the industry itself. The

thoroughbred is bred to be an athelete, and provided

the horses retire without major injury they can be

retrained as excellent riding horses and many go on to

be competitive sport horses.

The other new class is Best Pair of Matched Ridden

horses, which aims to encourage some fun in what can

be a competitive discipline. In keeping with the theme

of the show, president Paula McIlraith will award a

special prize to the best lady rider of fences.

Unique to the Ellesmere show is the trotting and

pacing section, which is held in ring two at 1pm.

There are inhand and driven classes, which have been

well supported for many years by harness trainers

Paul Nairn and Justin Smith as an opportunity

to expose their potential young race horses to an

atmosphere similar to a major race meet. There is

also a section for ridden standardbreds held in the

main ring, proving there is life after racing for the

harness horse also.

Jumping events include a 1.15m pony classes

and a 1.30m-1.40m horse class starting at 12pm on

Saturday in the Hound & Steed Creative Agency

arena. There is good prize money thanks to FMG

and Southfuels.

The following day there will be three rings of

competition ranging from small heights through

to the young rider class, which goes up to 1.35m.

Public admittance is free on Sunday.

Woodchopping & more

will draw the crowds

Wood chopping is an extremely popular

event at the Ellesmere Show, with large

numbers of spectators coming to see some

30 male and female competitors in action.

The Canterbury Axemen’s Association

will be running the meeting, which

involves more than just turning up on

the day to chop logs. The logs have to be

sourced, cut down, peeled and stored

before the meeting, all achieved through

members volunteering their time.

The Ellesmere Show Committee also

spends considerable time and effort

preparing the grounds, sorting out

the hosting requirements, and gaining

sponsorship. Sponsors include Think

Water Leeston, Canterbury Waterproofing,

Ellesmere Motor Bodies, McMillan

Drilling Group and Stihl Shop Fosters.

Events will include standing and

underhand chops, single and doublehanded

sawing, and some extra women’s

events, both sawing and chopping, to

celebrate this year’s theme ‘Celebrating

Rural Women’.

will be a highlight, with competitors set

to shear their sheep in under 40 seconds.

A blade shearer will take on a machine

Ellesmere A&P Association Dog Trials

competition includes District Maiden,

District (Boon Trophy), Maiden (Barclay

Shepherd and dog will have eight

minutes to drive three sheep through two

sets of hurdles and put them in the pen to

complete the run.

The dog trials event is well supported

across the four classes with the district

dogs running on Friday afternoon and the

maiden and open classes on the Saturday.

It is sponsored by Brian Brice of HRL Ltd

Sheep entries are up significantly this

year, due to president Paula McIlraith

and husband Alistair’s involvement in the

stud sheep industry. Their breeds, the Poll

Dorset and Suffolk, are both having feature

shows, attracting increased entries in these

sections. The black and coloured sections

also have a feature show.

The champions from each breed’s section

will contest the Donald Cameron Memorial

trophy for the Supreme Sheep of the Show.

The best ram hoggets from each breed will

contest the Connelly Cup for meat breeds

and the Ellesmere Livestock Trophy for

wool breeds, sponsored by Peter Walsh &


The best ewe hogget contest, the Adelong

Trophies, is sponsored by Essential


The specialised competitions, the

Alliance Group Export Sire Competition,

the ANZCO Foods Canterbury Hoof

and Hook Lamb Competition, and the

Rabobank Gift Lamb competition, will

again be hotly contested.


This year’s dairy section will bring registered breeders from

as far north as Rangiora through to the Ellesmere District and

surrounding areas of Methven. Major sponsor Agrisea will again

contribute to the day, along with DBC, Semex Samen NZ, WWS,

Genetic Enterprises, Tahora Farm, ABS, Vitec Nutrition, Aakland

Chemicals and Riverbrae Dairy Farm Ltd.

The Holstein classes will be judged by Peter Sheriff from the

Sherraine Holstein Friesian Stud, Ohoka.

The Jersey judge will be Robert Kelly from Oamaru. Robert has

judged nationwide and has been invited back to this year’s show to

judge the Jerseys.

The Ayeshire breed will

again be well represented

by local exhibitors so

the all breeds classes

will ensure good class

numbers. Richard Boyce

will again be judging the

calf club section with

good entries throughout

the different age groups.

Beef cattle

This year’s beef judge for the Ellesmere Show is Rob Burrows

from Ashley. As an RAS judge Rob is an approved interbreed

national beef judge. Originally from Culverden he currently runs

the Beechwood Hereford and Charolais Studs.

Associate judge is Marie Timperley of Oxford, who runs the

Timperlea Angus Stud. Last year Marie won the Five Nations Beef

Alliance Young Leader Scholarship, which allowed her to attend a

conference in Mexico.

The two main sponsors are Tavendale & Partners and Brown

Glassford & Co.

14 years. When not at work I’m

often found on the West Coast

at the family bach out boating,

fishing and enjoying time with

family and friends.


I have been vet nursing for 3

years and currently studying

towards my Diploma in

Veterinary Nursing. I am a

very proud mother of 2 girls

aged 7 and 13 and they both

keep me very busy with their

sports and the youngest with

her Motorcross. My hobbies

include adventure racing,

road and mountain biking. I

love working with my team

at Lincoln and enjoy chatting

with all our clients.

Challenge, Innovate, Perform, Excel


I have come from a farming

background of sheep and crop

just outside of Lincoln. After

graduating I worked for a

while in Dunsandel and then

worked and travelled in the

UK/Europe for 18 months. I

have started as a large animal

vet for Lincoln/Leeston and am

looking forward to getting a

good client base and settling

down in the area.


I’ve been working as a

veterinarian since the mid 80s,

starting first in Wanaka before

working in the UK. I work

predominantly as a production

animal vet, sharing my time

between mid Canterbury and

local Selwyn clients. After

living in Ashburton for many

years I moved eight years ago

to Tai Tapu with the family

and our menagerie of sheep,

alpacas, goats, pigs and Ernest

the Highland steer.

Do you want to ensure the best

health and welfare of the animals

on your lifestyle block?

The team at VetEnt Lincoln and

Leeston would like to help you

provide the best care for your animals.

There are expectations when owning

and caring for livestock in regards

to animal health and welfare so we

want to make this information easily

accessible. We have taken on board

your feedback highlighting that many

of you are not sure where to get good

information and are stuck with most

vet practices catering for either the

larger farms or companion animals.

We would like to change this.

In response to your feedback we

would like to introduce the Lifestylers

Package. The aim of this is to create a

community where we can help each

other out and get you comfortable

and confident handling, treating

and recognizing problems in your

animals. We have held a number of

evening talks over the last six months

and have had a high level of interest


By becoming a member you will

receive regular newsletters, can

attend talks and training sessions for

free and have access to prescription

only medicines once you have

completed a basic training workshop.

Members will be able to join in on

discussions and help propose future

talks or initiatives on our Facebook


Give us a call and have a chat to

our large animal vets or pop in and

grab an information sheet about the

package and how to join. Check out

the Facebook page “VetEnt Lincoln/

Leeston Lifestylers” to see up coming

events and for more information.

We look forward to hearing from






I’m Poorna, a registered vet

nurse with a diploma in

Veterinary nursing. I have

been vet nursing for the last

11 years, and I love it! In my

spare time I love the out doors,

music, dancing, Theatre,

watching movies and continual

education to keep improving

my vet nursing skills.



I am the receptionist at Vetent

Lincoln and graduated as a

vet nurse from CPIT last year.

I grew up on a dairy farm in

Rakaia with lots of different

animals. I am currently

building a house in Leeston

with my partner Michael and

we own a beautiful French

Bulldog named Alissa.

I’m Annalisa I was born and

bred in Christchurch and have

worked as a small animal vet

in clinics in Ashburton and

Christchurch since graduating

in 2007. I have a keen interest

in Animal Behaviour and Feline

Medicine. When not treating

other people’s fur babies,

or taking care if of my own

animal menagerie, I’m busy

spending time in the garden,

mountain-biking or making

memories with my husband

Jeremy and our gorgeous

children Lilly and Stan.


I’m from Singapore originally,

and have been living in

New Zealand since 2006.

I graduated from Massey

University and have spent my

first three years working in

mixed practice on the Banks

Peninsula. I spend my free

time rock climbing, mountain

biking, skiing and travelling.

Jo Bennett


Originally from the UK, I have

been a farm animal vet for the

last five years on the Wild West

Coast with a brief interlude back

home for a year. This confirmed

my desire to make NZ my home

so I have just moved to the flats

of Canterbury with my lovely

puppy and horse to start with

this great new team, I look

forward to meeting you.

I am the Canterbury region

operations leader also a vet

having graduated from Massey

in 2005. Original working

between Wairoa and Napier

I have recently moved and

now settled with my family in

Rolleston. When not at work

(and when the wife allows) I

enjoy hunting the variety of

game that the South Island has

on offer.

We want to get to know you better by providing a service that

makes you feel more connected to your local vet and community.

By becoming a member of our lifestylers package you will have

access to great resources to help you and your animals stay healthy.

Major revamp for Colorado

• By Ross Kiddie

THE 2017 Holden Colorado

ute is now on sale in New


Although based on the

model it replaces the newcomer

has many changes,

most evident in a completely

revised interior, gains in

overall quietness and ride,

while handling is aided by

electric power steering across

the range.

Under the bonnet the engine

is mostly a carryover, the

four-cylinder, twin-camshaft,

turbocharged diesel produces

147kW and 500Nm. There

are choices of both manual

and automatic gearboxes,

along with two and fourwheel-drive

options. There’s

also a choice of three body

styles – single-cab, spacecab

and crewcab.

Payload and towing capability

is rated at 1-tonne and

3.5-tonne respectively. A list

of 77 genuine accessories

available across the range.

“Colorado has resonated

well with customers in a

segment that has more than

doubled in sales in the last 10

years, and we’re confident the

new 2017 Colorado will build

on this and redefine customer

expectations of what a truck

HOLDEN COLORADO: Many options within the range,

including both two and four-wheel-drive variants.

can be,” Holden New Zealand

managing director Kristian

Aquilina said.

“Not only does it come

with fresh new styling, it also

offers car-like refinement,

ride and handling as well as

vehicle technologies unique

to this segment including

Apple CarPlay and Android

Auto connectivity.

“Colorado is also the only

vehicle in the 4x4 utility vehicle

segment to offer remote

window activation – a feature

we expect to be popular with

customers in warmer parts of

New Zealand.”

Colorado’s technology offering

also provides notable

safety enhancements, including

a new forward facing camera

with active safety features

such as forward collision alert

and lane departure warning.

For low speed manoeuvres,

drivers are assisted by

front and rear park assist on

selected vehicles and rear view

camera across the range.

The Colorado also has a

new MyLink infotainment

system delivered through a

colour touchscreen.

Said Mr Aquilina: “Pleasingly,

we have been able to

maintain carry-over pricing

for two-wheel drive models

and just a $1000 increase for

four-wheel drive variants.”

Prices range from $39,990

to $66,990.

Competition for

Subaru WRX owners


Zealand is celebrating

25 years of the WRX in

2017 and wants to find

the best WRXs in the


The winners will

have the opportunity to

display their WRX at

one of New Zealand’s

premium motorsport

events. The competition

will see New Zealand’s

25 most-stunning

WRXs win a Subaru Leadfoot Festival

experience. Entrants need to

simply upload a photo of their WRX

to with

some information about what makes

their pride and joy so special.

Share the entry on social media

with the hashtag #wrx25nz and get

friends and family to vote. The public

vote accounts for 50 per cent with

a panel of three Subaru-appointed

judges rounding out the remaining

50 per cent.

The judges are Ben Hunt, 2015 NZ

National Rally Champion and Subaru

of New Zealand brand ambassador;

Rod Millen, Leadfoot Ranch

owner, Leadfoot Festival founder,

and motorsport legend; and Subaru

of New Zealand managing director

Wallis Dumper.

The 25 chosen winners will attend

the Leadfoot Festival on Waitangi

Weekend, February 4 and 5, 2017,

and enjoy Subaru hospitality at the

Coromandel event, as well as having

their WRX on display in a Subaru

tent in prime position at the festival.

Five lucky owners will also be chosen

on the day to drive their WRX

up the 1.6km driveway, owned and

built by Millen, on his oceanfront

ranch in Hahei.

The Leadfoot Festival is a unique

motorsport event held annually,

where Millen and his wife Shelly

bring together an exciting mix of

classic and performance cars, vintage

motor-cycles and motorsport identities.

It features a long, perfectlysealed

driveway – designed to be

the perfect hill climb – that winds

through the property.

Rolleston – Then & Now

There is much to celebrate

with Rolleston turning 150

and maybe a little melancholy

as some remember the town

as it was.

Strategically positioned by state

highway one and the midland/

southern railway junction, Rolleston’s

origin links to the opening of its

railway station, in 1866, named after

William Rolleston (Canterbury’s last

provincial superintendent).

The area was originally a large sheep

run, farmed by Fitzgerald and Cox.

This was divided into smaller lots

early in the 1860s, with some of the

subsequent farmers names like Levi

Lowe, Henry Benny and the Fosters

still linked to the area.

Lex Cockburn’s family moved to

Hoskyns Road in 1929 where his

parents ran sheep on 300 acres.

“It was tough making a living out

of farming,” says Lex who remembers

gorse and broom right to the edge

of the road and his parents sending

him to Weedons School so he did

not have to cross the railway line and

main road, to reach Rolleston Primary

School, which originally opened in


For much of its 125 years, Rolleston

was small with few amenities.

John Neville purchased a section in

Rolleston in the 1970s for $800.

“We could only

buy icecreams or

chocolate at the

Rolly Inn when it

was open,” adds


“We played

tennis on the road

and my father dug a long jump pit in

the footpath for us. Everyone knew

each other back then,” says Eleanor

Payne who has lived in Rolleston all

her life.

Prime Minister Norman Kirk

mooted the idea of Rolleston as a

satellite to Christchurch in the 1970s.

“My parents owned 500 acres where

Rolleston town now stands which the

government purchased in September

1976,” says Rayleen Clarke (nee


The government changed and the

plan was shelved though floated

periodically with the land sold onto

private developers. Meanwhile, private

enterprise promoted and developed

Rolleston as the ‘Town of the Future’.

“Paramount Homes built down

Moore Street. I bought a full quarter

acre section for $800, which was about

a third less than in Christchurch, with

the home and land costing around the

$5,000 mark,” says John Neville who

moved to Rolleston for cheap land in

the 1970s.

The population grew to around

1,000 then later lifestyle blocks

attracted people with the population

steadily growing, with the Rolleston

New World built in 2002.

that sold icecream and chocolate.

wreaked homes in Christchurch,

many people relocated to Rolleston.

This spurred planning changes with

denser housing. Housing estates filled

quickly, more land opened up and the

population climbed to around 14,000.

who married a local girl and moved to

Rolleston in 1966.

Shopping precincts and public

amenities have been added over time

Selwyn now has age and ethnic

Rolleston now embraces those older

with smaller sections, townhouses,

No wonder, the region’s growth

is anticipated to reach 2.4% and

The big spring clean


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.

Contact us today to see what we can

do for you.

The spring clean has a long history,

and for good reason. Spring is

the first opportunity to open

up windows and doors, and let

warm, dry air into the house, helping

remove winter moisture and any additional

dampness created during; for example,

carpet cleaning. It’s not just about making

the house look better, but also preserving

the fixtures and fittings in your home,

and maintaining a healthy environment

by removing unwanted dust, bugs and

maybe mould.

Mattress care is a good example. We spend

up a third of our life in bed, and it’s a dirty

place. We shed skin that is devoured by

millions of dust mites, and we sweat. It all

causes deterioration that leads to a worse

sleep. Vacuuming the mattress, turning it

over and leaving it exposed to sunlight are

simple things to add to your spring cleaning

list for great dividends in the long run.

Making a list is a good idea, albeit a little

disheartening as it gets longer. You do,

however, get a small reward as you tick

off each item. Spring cleaning is one of

those activities that is most satisfying when

finished (rather than during), and lends itself

to a management method called the salami

technique. Use small steps to reach your goal,

like slicing a salami, rather than trying to

eat it whole, and you’ll get through your list

before you know it. If you need a list, Google

‘spring clean’ and customise to your particular


A comprehensive clean is also a good

opportunity to review your possessions.

There has been some great innovations in

storage solutions recently, including drawers

built into stairs and into the kickboards in

kitchens, but you have to ask yourself – if I

Many hands: Get the whole family involved

in your spring cleaning!

need that much storage, maybe I just own too

much, and do I really need it all? Research in

the USA showed there was around 300,000

items in the average home, and many of us

are probably not that far behind. This has

spawned a movement called minimalism,

where people reduce what they own. It

doesn’t mean living a Spartan lifestyle where

you go without; people who try it say it just

feels more liberating. It’s hard to do though,

as we tend to be loss averse – we place a high

value on what we own, and simply don’t

part with it easily. It’s much easier to clean

a minimalist home, and much easier to make

it look stylish. If you want to rid yourself of

extra bits and bobs, try putting them on

the local neighbourhood Facebook page or

choose to have a garage sale, with an early

start and day of fun and conversation with


Spring is the season associated with renewal

and growth, and it’s a good opportunity to

use that increased energy and enthusiasm

you have to get your renovation projects

underway, too.
