38 Tuesday October 4 2016 SELWYN TIMES ADVERTORIAL Introducing VetEnt Lincoln: Amanda I started with VetEnt in 2012 as a qualified veterinary nurse. My present position is multi-clinic coordinator forr both Lincoln and Halswell clinics. I have lived locally with my husband, children and our great mix of pets for the last 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. Sahar 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 Leesa 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. Rob 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 already. 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 page. 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 you.

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 SUBARU OF New Zealand is celebrating 25 years of the WRX in 2017 and wants to find the best WRXs in the country. 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.
