Disgust

over cattle

grazing at

Coes Ford

• By Tom Doudney

COWS GRAZING up to 10m

from the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River

on public recreation land at Coes

Ford were quickly moved on by

the district council the day after a

Selwyn Huts resident posted photos

on Facebook.

Steve Curtis was disappointed

to spot about 30 to 40 cows in the

reserve while driving past.

The reserve had been leased for

grazing by the district council.

Mr Curtis took photos which he

posted to both the district council

and Environment Canterbury Facebook

pages.

He said while the cows weren’t in

the river, the fence between them

and the water was only 10m away

from it.

“With that amount of cattle in

there and all their crap so close to

the river, it wouldn’t matter if they

were standing in the river or not,

it’s going to seep in there,” he said.

THE BRIGHT SIDE: Election results may have cut short her mayoralty ambitions and

brought the curtain down on nine years at the district council table but former deputy

mayor Sarah Walters isn’t one to be bitter. Reporter Tom Doudney caught up with Mrs

Walters to find out what might be next for her and get her views on the challenges new

mayor Sam Broughton will face. •Read more on pages 8 and 9.

SARAH WALTERS put all of her

political eggs into one basket in the

local body elections, standing only

for mayor, and not also for a seat at

the council table.

History now shows Sam

Broughton will lead the district,

and Walters, a three time councillor

and the last two of those as

deputy mayor, disappears from

the local political scene for this

term anyway. Today on pages

8-9, reporter Tom Doudney talks

to Walters about her thoughts

on Broughton’s win and how the

35-year-old first-time mayor will

handle the big job, issues the district

faces and, of course, what the

future holds for herself.

The wet spring won’t have any

tangible impact on the looming

water problem for farmers this

summer (see page 3). And some

may not even get access to irrigation,

experts say.

Tough times loom

• By Tom Doudney

A WET start to spring has

bought irrigating farmers some

time but will ultimately make

no significant difference to

groundwater levels.

HydroServices managing

director Dr Tony

Davoren said recent rain

hadn’t been enough to

change the groundwater

situation but had helped

irrigators conserve water.

“We have been getting

enough rain in that latter part

of September and early part of

October to not have to irrigate,

so we are in a way conserving

some groundwater for later in

the season really, so we haven’t

had to start really early,” Dr

Davoren said.

However, the low groundwater

levels would still mean there

would be farmers with no access

to irrigation this season.

Greendale farmer

Earl Worsfold said low

groundwater levels would

mean being restricted

to dryland farming this

season. This would halve

his wheat crop and potential

income, while his

operating costs would remain

almost the same, making for a

challenging year ahead.

The lack of irrigation had

meant “making some early

decisions with the cropping

rotations and taking some crops

out of the mix for the spring options

because there is no point

in putting in something that’s

not going to grow,” he said.

“It’s back to basics I suppose

and just trying to minimise

costs. Personally, I’m probably

going to do a little bit of off-farm

work and maybe just drive a

tractor for a contractor just to

sort of make ends meat.”

Low commodity prices were

also putting the squeeze on

farmers, Mr Worsfold said.

Dr Davoren said among the

most affected farmers in Selwyn

would be the roughly 130 on

adaptive management water

consents, meaning they were

granted when groundwater

zones were considered fully allocated

and holders could only

take water when levels were

high.

“Almost all of those adaptive

management consents have zero

water this summer,” he said.

For other farmers things were

looking a bit less dire.

“We have gone a month without

having to really irrigate,” Dr

Davoren said.

“That’s really valuable, we

are a month into the growing

season now without having to

turn those taps on so to speak.

“If we can go another two

or three weeks with really low

demand for irrigation, then

we are a quarter to a third of

the way through the growing

season.”

STARTING OVER: Wednesday was the

first day at a new campus for 165 Lincoln

Primary School pupils in years 0-2, along

with 10 teachers and support staff. While

everyone did start the new term on the

Monday, these children went on field trips

to Ferrymead and the Antarctic Centre.

While the children were on these outings,

some of their teachers along with parents

and other staff were working hard to

unpack at the newly established junior

campus site at 24 Edwards St. The need to

relocate to the site, a former Environment

Canterbury office owned by the district

council, has been driven by the school’s

growing roll which has reached 579.

TREE HITS CAR

A Rolleston woman was taken to

Christchurch Hospital with serious

injuries yesterday after her car was

hit by a tree which fell over in strong

wind. The woman was travelling

on State Highway 1, near the Waterholes

Rd intersection, when the

accident happened at about 7.20am.

The driver of another car involved in

the accident was uninjured but their

car received minor damage. Investigations

to determine all the details

of the crash were continuing.

MAIL THEFTS

A woman accused of committing a

spate of rural mail thefts has been

banned from going to Selwyn or

Waimakariri while she is on bail on

remand. Anna Leigh Hunter, 34,

was remanded without plea until

November 1 at the Christchurch

District Court yesterday. Police are

considering whether to lay another

charge. Police have recovered most

of the missing mail, which they say

Hunter stole from across Canterbury.

It was a blast from the past when Rolleston

celebrated its 150th anniversary with a special show

on Saturday. The show, which was part of a series of

events over the weekend, included historic working

displays such as shearing, log loading, saw milling

and tractor pulling; locomotives on display; vintage

and classic cars and other machinery; along with

other entertainment. The first annual CultureFest,

celebrating Selwyn’s diverse cultures was also held

in conjunction with the show at the same location

on the corner of Jones Rd and Hoskyns Rd. About

10,000 people are estimated to have joined in the

celebrations.

Piping ‘rock star’ for games

THE HORORATA Highland

Games chieftain Kyle Warren is

somewhat of a piping rock star.

Born in Scotland, Mr Warren

immigrated to Australia at the end

of 2014.

He has released

two piping albums

with KRL records

and also toured

world-wide with the

Red Hot Chilli Pipers

performing their

unique mix of bagpipes

and rock music – ‘Bagrock’.

Mr Warren (above) more recently

recorded pipes on the Disney Pixar

Oscar winning movie Brave.

He said he was looking forward to

his role at Hororata.

“I have been to many Highland

Games around the world and am

Disgust over cattle grazing at Coes Ford

•From page 1

“The Selwyn itself, just down

from Coes Ford, has been a disgusting

looking green river for a

long time and just to add to the

problem with cattle only a few

metres away, I just thought it was

disgusting.”

Mr Curtis said the incident

was particularly poor with the

focus which had been on the

state of the river in recent times

honoured to have been invited to be

chieftain at Hororata,” he said.

Mr Warren has made a career out

of piping and is a sort after piping

tutor around the world; currently

teaching at the Scotch College Melbourne.

While pipe major of the National

Youth Pipe Band of Scotland, he

performed with some of the biggest

names in traditional music.

This year, the Hororata Highland

Games has introduced a new pipe

band competition. The quartet band

competition which will see groups

of four musicians with bagpipes

and other acoustic instruments

perform.

Mr Warren will be judging this,

which will allow people to see a

different side to the traditional pipe

band competitions.

and because at other times

people often used the area where

the cows were fenced in for

picnicking.

ECan principle resource management

adviser Richard Purdon

said grazing cows on the river’s

edge would require a resource

consent on the land upstream

of Coes Ford and downstream

it would be a prohibited activity

for which no consent could be

granted.

“We are very pleased that the

Selwyn District Council acted

so promptly to remove the cows

immediately and deal with the

lease to prevent this from occurring

again and have indicated

this to them,” Mr Purdon said.

Last week cows were

filmed grazing on ECan land

leased by the New Zealand

Transport Agency on the edge

of the Otukaikino Creek in

Christchurch. ECan said the

land had been accessed by a

farmer without NZTA’s consent.

The district council did not

respond to questions from the

Selwyn Times.

In Brief

CORRECTION

In last week’s election coverage,

the Selwyn Times incorrectly

referred to Rosalie Snoyink as

a candidate for Environment

Canterbury’s Mid Canterbury

constituency. In fact the candidate

was Nicky Snoyink. The

Selwyn Times apologises for the

error.

GARDEN WASTE

Malvern and Ellesmere residents

will have the opportunity

to dispose of garden waste at

community garden waste days

to be held in their areas over

the next few weeks. The first

day is at Hawkins Pit, on Cullens

Rd, on October 29, 10am-

4pm. The Ellesmere day is on

November 19, 10am-4pm, at

Cemetery Pit, on Southbridge

Leeston Rd, between 10am and

4pm. It costs $5 per car, $10 per

ute or single axle trailer or $15

per twin axle trailer to dispose

of garden waste at these days.

Payment is cash only, with

proceeds from the Malvern day

donated to the Malvern Lions

Club and proceeds from the

Ellesmere day to the Ellesmere

Heritage Park. General rubbish,

soil, flax, cabbage tree leaves,

trees or branches over 10cm in

diameter can’t be disposed of

through this service.

TRULY LOCAL & PROUD OF IT

Its an exciting time to be part of the fabric of

Rolleston and the wider Canterbury and Selwyn

regions. We are growing and the 150th

Birthday celebrations this past weekend were

testament to the strength and confidence that

exists here and now.

Brenna Sincock Hearing is proud to be part of

this community and we couldn’t have asked

for a more beautiful day to come out to the

celebrations. Thank you to all the people who

came and had a chat to us at our stand and

made us feel so welcome.

It was a busy weekend for Brenna Sincock

Hearing! The Canterbury Home Show at Horncastle

Arena was a huge success, as was the

Ellesmere A&P Show. “My point of difference

in audiology and hearing health is that I bring

all the experience of the bigger companies, but

I take a more personal approach,” says Brenna.

“One can’t take a “cookie cutter” approach to

hearing, it requires empathy and taking considerable

time listening to customers for them to

get the most out of their hearing aids.” “Going

to these local shows and events is important

to me. I value the conversations and being

able to share and promote not only my business,

but my passion for hearing well and the

unmeasurable impact this can have on quality

of life.”

Brenna Sincock Hearing is Rolleston’s only

full-time and locally owned hearing aid clinic.

With the commitment to the wider area, Brenna

does regular clinics in Leeston, Darfield and

now Lincoln. Determined to provide a one stop

shop for all audiology needs. Her personal approach

and her vast experience in the profession

make her the audiologist of choice in the

area. “I have been thrilled with the number of

AFTER MORE than a year

without racing, the fast cars and

their fans are finally set to return

to Leeston’s Ellesmere Speedway.

The track’s grand reopening

and first meeting of the season

will held be on Sunday.

The raceway’s redevelopment

has taken more than a year and

cost about $200,000 – although

that figure would be much higher

if weren’t for the commitment of

the raceway’s managing committee

and the wider community.

Ellesmere Speedway promotions

secretary Bridget Roxburgh

said about 11 committee members

had spent probably more

than 1000 hours working on the

track every Sunday since work

began in June last year.

“All the hours were volunteer,

our committee and community

have been really generous with

providing equipment and we

have got engineers and builders

on our committee,” she said.

She estimated that if it weren’t

for the volunteer work and community

assistance, the redevelopment

would have cost between $1

million and $1.5 million.

BEHIND THE WHEEL: Jaxon

control tower put in, and the

Mrs Roxburgh said the redevelopment

would provide better

views for spectators and allow

the track to comply with new

health and safety standards.

Mrs Roxburgh said being unable

to use the track for racing

last season had been financially

difficult and the length of its closure

was not originally planned.

“Half of the concrete

partitions were donated

from the Timaru speedway

when they closed down, which

gave us the motivation to start,”

she said.

“We were going to do half,

then race, and then do half the

next off season but we decided

to keep going because we got

funding from the New Zealand

Community Trust.”

The meeting on Sunday will

include TQs, V8 modifieds,

midget sprintcars, quarter

midgets, six-cylinder, six-shooter,

motocross, production saloons

and modified sprints.

Club patron Shirley Burt will

be cutting the ribbon to mark the

reopening.

Life after council for former

SMITH & BOSTON

Prebbleton Village | Christchurch

Ph: 03 349 5646

www.smithandboston.co.nz

Two weeks ago, Sarah

Walters was Selwyn’s

deputy mayor and a

leading contender for

the district’s mayoralty

– now she is figuring

out life after the district

council. She spoke to

Tom Doudney about

the election, her

thoughts on new mayor

Sam Broughton and

the achievement she is

most proud of

How did you feel when you

found out the election result?

My instant feeling when I

got told was ‘oh my god, I have

let people down’ because I had

so many wonderful messages

of support and I know that

people were really backing me

to be there. I was ready for a

change and whether it was up

or whether it was out I left that

up to the people of Selwyn to

decide and they have decided,

so I’m not going to be bitter or

anything about it.

How do you think Sam

Broughton will go as mayor?

I think he will bring a very

different style, it will definitely

be his own style because that’s

BOWING OUT: For the first time in nine years, Sarah

Walters won’t be involved in decision-making at the

district council table.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

the kind of guy Sam is and I

think he will do a good job.

How would you describe

his style?

Pretty casual and relaxed.

He is a very personable and

relaxed person, I think people

will enjoy that element of his

mayoralty. I suppose there

may be some that find him too

casual for what they expect the

role to be but that is up to Sam

– he has got the job and he will

make it his own.

What sort of challenges

do you think he will face as

a new mayor leading a new

council?

I think he has got quite a

steep learning curve because

there are a lot of aspects of

the role that he hasn’t been involved

in to date. I don’t think

it will be an issue for him but

he will have a lot to learn.

What do you see as some of

the big issues that the

new council needs to get on

top of?

The council has been really

good at doing the infrastructure

side of things but we

haven’t been so good at creating

the social infrastructure

and building the community

and it’s not just a council role

but it is a council role to make

sure that it happens.

So what’s next for Sarah

Walters?

My daughters have said I

can have a week’s gardening

leave and then I have got to

find a job to keep them in

the style they have become

accustomed to. As to what the

next role is I don’t have anything

in particular in mind. I

have enjoyed being Selwyn’s

transport portfolio holder for

the last three years and I have

a strong interest in transportrelated

issues so if there was

something in that sphere that

would be great. So I hope to be

a bit fussy about what I do but

in the end it might just come

down to putting food on the

table.

Sarah Walters

deputy mayor

Maronan Road, Tinwald, Ashburton

What about politics?

I’ve never been particularly

drawn to central government

politics. I know that’s where

the big decisions are made but

it just seems so much more

brutal and so much harder to

make a difference.

Before you started on council,

what were you doing?

I was working part-time as

an administration assistant.

How did you first get on

to council without having a

public profile at the time?

I stood for the council in

2007 and it took me a long

time to decide that I had

something worthwhile to offer.

But I have got great kids, they

were seven and nine at the

time, and I was worried about

the decisions that would be

made for their future and I

only had to look around and

see we had so many fantastic

kids in our district and I

wanted to be there as a voice

for their futures. So that was

my original motivation and I

was quite nervous because I

thought ‘well, I’m nothing special’

but in the end I decided

that there was nobody there

like me and that was the best

thing I could bring.

My first foray was sending

an email to the then Selwyn

STEPPING UP: Speaking at public events and openings

were part of Sarah Walters’ role as deputy mayor.

Times reporter which said

“campaign on a bike? She

must be mad” and that was my

subject line and then I went on

in the email “well, probably,

but I’m going to do it anyway.”

The reporter came and did an

interview and that went into

the paper and I did get out on

my bike.

Out of all the things you

have had a hand in in your

nine years on council, is there

anything in particular you

are quite proud of?

I know that one thing

wouldn’t have happened

without me, although it

obviously wasn’t just me, was

the building of the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre and getting

the improvements to district

pools that came out of getting

the Selwyn Aquatic Strategy

through. It was leading up to

the 2010 election and there

was a lot of controversy, which

obviously local papers pick

up on and make a bigger deal

than it really is, and there was

an unwillingness from people

around the council table to

step up and take on that role.

They needed someone to take

on the sports and recreation

portfolio which meant they

were taking on the aquatic

centre and I took on that role

and in doing that I thought

‘this is important enough for

me to put my job on the line.’

Although I’m not a swimmer

myself I did recognise

what having the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre would bring

to the community and fortunately

the Selwyn community

rewarded me for that and I

got reelected on a campaign

budget of $87. No matter

where my future life goes I

have always thought I can be

quietly proud of that.

Anything you’d like to say

to sign off, Sarah?

As a person who is not

going to have a public profile

any more, one of the really

big things for me has been

the support I have got from

people and I think it has

helped me be in a good head

space for stepping out of the

council as well because I had

so many messages of support

and phone calls leading up the

election and post the election.

I’m glad for what I have been

able to achieve, I’m sad about

what I am not going to be able

to achieve in the future but

I’m okay with where things

are at because of the support

I have had from my family. It

has made a big difference just

having that support because I

think I probably would have

been a bit of a mess otherwise.

MidlandPort officially opened

LYTTELTON PORT of

Christchurch celebrated its

new ‘inland port’ at Rolleston

with an official opening

ceremony on Friday.

Selwyn MP Amy Adams

cut the ribbon at the opening

of MidlandPort, which began

operating in June.

The facility was built to handle

container freight travelling

between Lyttelton and other

South Island locations and to

future-proof the port company’s

transport connections

for Canterbury’s trade growth.

It is one of two inland ports

in Rolleston, with the Port

of Tauranga having opened

MetroPort in the Izone business

park last year.

LPC chairman Trevor Burt

said MidlandPort saved a journey

to Lyttelton for customers

working with the eight shipping

services and 14 shipping

lines that visited the port.

“It is strategically positioned

at the intersection of major

transport routes, with rail

access to all points west and

south of Rolleston,” Mr Burt

said.

“It also services the increasing

productivity from the

Canterbury Plains. Irrigation

is boosting exports such as dry

and refrigerated dairy, frozen

meat and vegetables.

“In central Canterbury,

60,000 hectares of mostly

dryland farms will be transformed

by the Central Plains

Irrigation Scheme. That will

increase agricultural output by

about $264 million a year.”

Mr Burt said the facility was

also improving travel time for

freight transport and helping

reduce road congestion.

“Each round trip rail service

takes up to 80 truck trips off

our roads. This is a positive

step as our city focuses on improving

transport efficiency,”

he said.

“Already we have welcomed

major customers such as

Westland Milk Products and

The Warehouse on board. We

are managing hundreds of

containers here every week

and volumes have tripled since

we opened.”

MidlandPort was a vital part

of LPC’s planning to be ready

for a forecast 50 per cent increase

in exports and imports

in the next nine years.

“As trade grows so do the

size of the cargo vessels.

We must be ready to

accommodate bigger ships

that will carry more cargo,”

DOING THE HONOURS: Amy Adams speaks at the opening

of MidlandPort on Friday, while Mayor Sam Broughton

(below left) talks to LPC chief executive Peter Davie.

Mr Burt said.

“We have had a 50 per

cent increase in container

volumes in the last five years.

We handle in excess of half

the South Island’s container

volume, including more than

70 per cent of imports.”

SELWYN TIMES

HAVE YOUR SAY: Email us your views on chlorination and businesses

operating without consent –tom.doudney@starmedia.kiwi

Cost of safe drinking water

Hororata-

Acheron

water supply

committee

chairman Gavin

King writes

about the

benefits of chlorinating

water

To chlorinate or not to

chlorinate our water supplies.

When asking people where

their water comes from, sometimes

the answer is “out of the

tap.” It’s got to get in the tap

before it comes out.

I have been involved with the

Hororata-Acheron water supply

for many years, both as a user of

the water and, since 1986, on the

water supply committee and, in

recent years, chairman.

The Hororata-Acheron water

supply delivers water to a wide

area from the Acheron River,

east of Lake Coleridge, to the

Rakaia River and down to

Ardlui Rd and to the true right

of the Selwyn River. We supply

Terrace Downs and Hororata

Village.

It was built in 1981/82 to

replace ageing water races and

deliver water to farms and rural

houses and villages.

In those days, the Government

subsidised the build. Off-farm

build cost was paid by the Government

and users – 50/50. Also

on-farm build cost was paid 50

per cent by the Government and

50 per cent by farmers. Today

you would not get a cent from

the Government. The people at

the time were wise, proceeding

with the build when they did.

Initially, the water supply was

chlorinated and this was done

for health reasons, mainly to kill

any E. coli and bad bacteria that

might have been floating around

in the water. Over the early

years, people complained about

the chlorine taste and also some

farmers said livestock would not

drink it. My opinion is livestock

drink when they are thirsty,

chlorine or no chlorine.

In the late 1980s, the squeaky

wheel got the better of the committee

and we installed UV filter

treatment in the water supply

and turned the chlorinators off.

That worked well, we hardly ever

tested the water – people used

the water and did not complain.

The livestock were happy, they

complained when there was no

water.

The Hororata-Acheron water

supply is administered by the

district council. Since about

2012, the district council has

been testing the water regularly

for E. coli. Occasionally E. coli

was found and then a boil water

notice would be sent out to

everyone at a cost of $1800 each

time.

This happened several times.

Because of the cost of boil water

notices and the possibility of

people becoming ill, we have

installed new chlorinators. Since

installing chlorinators we have

not had a positive E. coli reading.

What we are saving on the

boil water notices has paid for

the chlorinators, the water tastes

good and the livestock drink it

without any complaint.

It would be good to not add

anything to the water, but

the reality is there is a risk of

something happening like in

Havelock North recently. We

need to keep our water drinkable

with no risk of illness. We owe

this to our ratepayers and the

public. The chlorinators are here

to stay. Hororata-Acheron water

is excellent and very drinkable.

Hamptons Rd residents

Rod and Glenys Gard’ner

respond to the recent

granting of resource

consent to Paul’s

Excavation Services for

a contractors’ yard on

Leadleys Rd (pictured) after

the company had operated

at the site for several years

without consent

As someone who has resided

in the Selwyn district for the past

45 years, I am dismayed at the

decision of the district council

in granting permission for this

contractor to undertake his

activities.

This gripe is not against Mr

Paul but the district council, who

have displayed as much backbone

as a jellyfish in back tracking

with this consent.

They couldn’t even make the

decision themselves but had to

hide behind an independent

commissioner to do their job for

them.

As residents, we cannot subdivide

our property, even if we

wanted to. Yet it seems that it is

possible to start up an industrial

activity on rural land and then,

over time, it will be acceptable.

Already recently we have seen

a transport business operating

from a property in the area;

another, a drainlayer who

has commenced operations out

of another property, certainly

spread over more than 4000 sq

m; and now we have a young guy

who wants to set up a motocross

track.

I feel for the residents of Leadleys

Rd. Seems there is one rule

for the industry in Selwyn and

another for the residents.

I would like the district council

to respond and to outline what

protection rural landowners have

from the spread of these types of

activity.

Rapid growth in Rolleston

LAST WEEKEND it was great

to be involved in the Rolleston

150 th celebrations and to see

the way the community got

involved and enjoyed the

various activities that took

place.

Rolleston’s origins date back

to 1866 when the Christchurch

to Rolleston railway line was

opened as part of the Great

Southern Railway, which would

link Christchurch with Rakaia

and then eventually Timaru and

Dunedin.

By the early 1900s, as well

as a railway station, Rolleston

boasted a hotel, a school and

a blacksmith’s shop with

public saleyards to service the

population of under 100.

Fast forward to today and

Rolleston’s population has

grown rapidly during the past

15 years from 1974 in 2001 to

9555 at the 2013 census. The

current estimate is around

14,000.

This sudden expansion,

particularly with a lot of

families with school-aged

children moving into the area,

has meant significant recent

investment by the Government

in new schools.

When I became the local MP

in 2008, Rolleston School was

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

the only primary school. Now

Rolleston’s fifth primary school,

Lemonwood Grove School, is

preparing to open in February,

as is Rolleston’s first secondary

school, Rolleston College.

Rolleston’s growth in recent

times has given it the advantage

of being able to be one of the

first ‘fully-fibred’ towns (along

with Lincoln) in New Zealand

where all businesses, schools

and residents have access to

ultra-fast broadband.

To help keep up with the

demand for affordable housing

and land in Selwyn, especially

in Rolleston, the Government

signed a housing accord with the

district council in December last

year.

The accord allows the district

council to recommend special

housing areas to the Minister

for Building and Housing and

allow these developments to

be fast-tracked through the

consenting process to provide

additional housing supply.

As well as being in demand

for residential housing,

Rolleston is fast becoming

an important industrial and

logistics hub for the wider

region and is ideally located to

fulfil this role.

Developments such as i-Zone,

I-Port, Midland Port and

MetroPort are all contributing

to Rolleston’s rapid growth

as a sought after location for

businesses in many sectors.

This only looks set to

continue as the Central Plains

Water scheme will transform

local agricultural productivity

and Rolleston will be in an

ideal position to cater for the

resulting increase in freight

requirements, given its strategic

position next to the railway and

State Highway 1.

Rolleston is certainly coming

of age and fulfilling the

potential that the early pioneers

believed it had.

Help the SPCA

Lincoln High School student

Liana Hills writes about the

Society for the Prevention

of Cruelty to Animals and

the importance of the work

they do.

Our local SPCA is a non-profit

animal welfare organisation

located in Hornby that focuses

on helping animals who have

been maltreated. They also assist

in finding animals’ homes and

prevent any form of cruelty to

animals.

The SPCA rescue, rehabilitate,

reunite, rehome and educate.

Canterbury SPCA not only

handles inquiries related to

animals’ needing assistance, they

also have animals that stay and

receive care when their owners

are away.

The Canterbury SPCA works

alongside the Hornby Vet Clinic

and has an animal ambulance

available to rescue animals in

need.

Should you wish to adopt a pet

and give them a home forever,

you are welcome to visit between

opening hours (Monday to

Saturday, 10am-4pm and Sunday,

10am-2pm).

Rescuing a pet is very rewarding.

The animals there are

microchipped, de-flead, wormed

and de-sexed before they leave,

making it a great option for those

wanting a healthy and loving

companion.

I recently visited the Canterbury

SPCA to get a better

understanding of what it is they

exactly do.

I talked to the friendly staff and

they were happy to answer any

questions I had.

I found out that the SPCA had

over 2000 animals in their care

last year as well finding out various

ways that you can donate and

show your support.

The SPCA needs our support.

There are various ways to get

involved and help. If you are keen

to get involved, you don’t just

have to donate money, you can

also donate your time, blankets,

sheets, towels, food, toys and

treats.

Pipe organ

will be

preserved

A PIPE organ

at Prebbleton’s

All Saints

Church

has been

recognised for

its heritage

value.

The listing on the New Zealand

Organ Preservation Trust’s register

of historic pipe organs recognises

it as an instrument of importance

(category 1) to national heritage

and one deserving careful preservation

for the benefit of future

generations. It is one of only two

of its kind in New Zealand and

the other one has been extensively

modified.

Built by Wadsworth Bros in

England in 1898, the organ was installed

in 1907 in the newly rebuilt

church following a fire which had

completely destroyed the building

and its contents.

Church warden Graham Carpenter

said the local congregation

felt privileged to have such a

beautiful organ in the church for

Endangered birds in focus

A FLOCK of most unusual

birds has landed on the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre grounds in

Rolleston bringing a special

message.

The travelling display of handmade

birds, created by hundreds

of Canterbury schoolchildren,

has been flying around Canterbury

since mid-September and

will stay at the aquatic centre for

two to three weeks.

The Flock is a project which

has been organised by the

charity BRaid (Braided River

Aid) to increase awareness of

endangered birds that use Canterbury’s

rivers for breeding.

“Real braided river birds raise

their chicks on riverbeds from

early spring until mid summer,”

BRaid manager Sonny Whitelaw

said.

“Some species only breed on

Canterbury rivers and most are

having less and less success.”

The artistic display was about

educating people about these

visiting rare and precious birds

and how they could play a part

in their long-term survival.

“Braided rivercare groups put in

huge voluntary hours managing

hundreds of predator traps along

riverbanks, but more knowledge

in the community at large also

DROPPING BY: The Flock was installed at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre yesterday.

helps,” Ms Whitelaw said.

“Birds are nesting on stony

open riverbed areas until February.

Help the next generation of

these unique birds survive by

keeping four-wheel-drives and

dogs away and moving away

yourself if you notice you are

disturbing birds.”

The Department of Conservation

and many community

groups, schools and businesses

are supporting the project,

including Resene Paints.

The Flock has already popped

up outside Rangiora Library,

SELWYN TIMES

at Christchurch Airport, the

Methven iSite, Salmon Tales

Cafe in Rakaia, and as far north

as Kaikoura. ‘Flash Flocks’ will

continue to appear around Canterbury

into next year with the

birds’ travels being tracked on

social media.

new Lego Mindset kits for building their own robots recently.

In no time, robots were being built and programmed by students

interested in robotics and computer programming. A competition was held

to name each of the five robots and the winning names were R2DHS (built

by Chaedyn Bellam, Tim Mathers and Ethan Marriott), Anne Droid (built by

Lily Cameron), Chip (built by Emma Grigg), Pixel (built by Callum Jones)

grand opening

ellesmere speedway

The Speedway season fires into action all around the country at this time of the year but at Ellesmere Speedway it will

be an extra special occasion at their grand opening on 23rd October 2016 as they showcase the newest motorsport

facility in New Zealand. Ellesmere Speedway embarked on a major upgrade project on 7th June 2015, which initially

was intended for the off season, only to be extended for a full year to complete the work. The decision was not taken

lightly but is the correct one given the scale being undertaken. Many eyes were watching this ambitious project as

this small club forged ahead with positivity in securing this race facility in the Selwyn District for the future. By future

proofing the venue like we have been we will ensure that it will be a great community asset for many years to come.

This will become one of Selwyn’s premier sporting venues.

Affectionately called the “Paddock Racers” as through my younger days I followed them around from farm to farm as

the search continued for a small piece of land for the ‘Good Old Boys’ of “Hazzard County” to stay off the streets and

have some fun. History is documented where those terms came about when in 1981 the Ellesmere club moved to its

current permanent site. Over the years there has been many improvements made to the facility but only the original

construction of the track could compare to this upgrade, which has many of the original crew from when the first track

was built.

There has been many a great day had at Ellesmere with some meetings being the first in the country, (caravan derby)

and others outshining the performances of some well-established tracks (Pacific Sprint Car/Modified series). They have

always been great supporters of both the Ruapuna (formerly Templeton Speedway) and Woodford Glen and many great

names from around the country have raced on the track.

While it had always been envisaged that one day Ellesmere may have a concrete wall replacing the catch ditch,

President Rob Roxburgh admitted that being donated some of the concrete sections and able to purchase the original

shutters from the defunct Timaru Speedway, really gave this project a major kick start both financially but it also gave us

the motivation to start this project, which had been a dream for many years. Ellesmere had a good relationship with the

Timaru club back in the South Island Federation days and actually ran a fund raising meeting for them when they lost

their track in a severe flood of the area decades ago, so they could rebuild. They struggled with costly consent issues

for years trying to find a site that suited everyone, before giving it all away. A feature fans all around the country need

to appreciate. Holding on to a racing facility may well be easier than finding a new site like the one Ellesmere had the

good fortune to secure back in 1981 on Domain Board Reserve Land.

It’s a costly venture but the club had been very frugal in accumulating some funds as well as obtaining grants from Pub

Charities, New Zealand Community Trust (NZCT) and the Ellesmere reserves board, to help out. Many local businesses

have supported this project and the phenomenal support from a small, hard core group of members who have been

very loyal with their support and dedication by volunteering 99% of the labour which was hundreds of hours of time

that was required to complete the new stadium A massive thanks are owed to the small team of volunteers. Initially

work was planned over the weekends but this was going to take too long and was subject to some weather conditions.

Some of the team were on hand full time doing up to three concrete pours per week this progressed to many digger

hours to install the embankment area among other tasks. They have worked tirelessly to have the track opened for

business on 23rd October 2016. Ambitious, possibly crazy, but no shortcuts are being made, everything has been

completed to the highest standard and looks amazing.

The track graded was back, fence pulled down, catch ditch filled, outer perimeter levelled, concrete wall constructed,

new safety catchment fence and gates, race lights and raised car park embankment have been built around the

complete track the upgrade wouldn’t be complete without the track being resurfaced and re profiled, as well as new

control tower facility.

Extra moulds were made and used as the concrete sections were placed around the track, tied in and other panels

poured in place. Railway irons have been driven in the ground with PVC pipe tied next to them in 200 litre drums

filled with concrete to support the new safety fence poles. These drums and concrete fence have been tied back down

to old concrete power poles before they are covered with embankment material. The progress has been identified by

stages with many photos and many people from all over New Zealand have followed our journey and construction

process on the clubs Facebook page and web site as well as the few shown here.

Ellesmere is a member of the CTRA (Circle Racing Track Association) race group which suits the clubs venue and

community values. Affordable but with the all-important safety features for competitors and spectators alike. It’s

a friendly place and Ellesmere relies on the support of some of the SNZ classes as well as some bike ATV and MX

competitors throughout its season. Speedway heritage that comes the Selwyn area and we are thrilled to be writing

the next few chapters of that history.”

It is a brand new facility with the latest in safety regulations which exceed Speedway New Zealand requirements,

safety has become a very important factor in our sport and with the implementation upgrade not only will we have

the newest Speedway track but we will be one of the safest tracks around New Zealand.

Variety is something Ellesmere will continue to offer with invited classes supporting its regular car/ bike events.

Promoted events for the 2016/17 season will cater for ‘premier’ classes like Sprintcars, V8 Modifieds, Super Saloons

and Midgets, already securing two New Zealand Titles and a round of the Southern Midget Series, but we won’t be

forgetting the classes that have been the backbone of Ellesmere Speedways programme for the over past thirty years.

Of course the track will be available for private and corporate hire as well as training which will continue to see the

facility well used. Roll on 23rd October 2016, (rain date 24th October).

Classes conformed for the opening meeting include: Sprintcars, V8 Modifieds, Midgets, ¼ Midgets, Moto X, TQ’s,

Production Saloons, Six Cylinder Sprints and Six Shooters, as well as Modified Sprints. You can follow the club on

Facebook or on their webpage www.ellesmerespeedway.co.nz to stay up to date with what is happening.

ON THE WATER: Sam Bosworth has been named as a coxswain in the New Zealand elite

summer rowing squad.

Lincoln coxswain in national team

LINCOLN University’s newly

named Sportsperson of the

Year, Sam Bosworth, is looking

forward to a busy summer after

moving into the top level of his

sport.

He has been named as a

coxswain in the New Zealand

elite summer rowing squad and

hopes to go on from there to

claim selection for next year’s

world championship campaigns

at the helm of the men’s eight.

Bosworth, from Waipara,

claimed the Lincoln award last

month after coxing the men’s

under-23 four to victory in

the world championships in

Rotterdam, which he calls the

highlight of his sporting career

so far.

It followed a slew of silvers with

different crews in previous years.

The globe-trotting sportsman

is finishing his degree in

environmental planning and

then it’s onto summer camp in

Cambridge from October until

February with the elite rowers.

He is on a sports scholarship

and prime minister’s scholarship

and is grateful to a bevy of

sponsors and supporters who

have helped him get to this stage

in his career, as well as previous

coaches who have mentored him

over the years and the many

athletes he has coxed.

He started the sport while at

school at Christ’s College and

has moved from coxing to the

coaching boat.

Bosworth said while steering

might be an obvious part of the

job, so was strategy and man–

management. They were the

aspects he enjoyed the most.

There were also the traditional

roles of bringing out the oars and

doing odd-jobs, but he “loves the

racing” so it was all worthwhile.

• By Karolyn Boon

THE ROOSTER bowling

competition started in 1905,

with a trophy presented by R.

Louden, a bank manager in

Leeston.

The trophy is a sterling silver

rooster on black background

which, in 1994, was valued at

$1400.

Originally played between

Leeston, Dunsandel and Southbridge,

in 1917 the Ellesmere

Men’s Bowling Association took

the trophy over. Then in the

1950s, Lincoln joined followed

by other clubs.

Although the men’s and

ladies’ competitions are now

amalgamated into one association,

called Ellesmere Bowls Sub

Centre, The Rooster remains a

men-only competition.

It is always tightly fought

and often comes down to the

last round for a winner to be

declared.

Results after two rounds in

The Rooster have Dunsandel and

Lincoln 3 tied on 10 points with

Lincoln 4 and Tai Tapu close

behind on eight points.

Tennis club celebrates 130 years

ONE OF the oldest tennis clubs

in the country will celebrate its

130th jubilee this weekend.

The Kirwee Tennis Club was

formed on October 1, 1886.

It will also celebrate 50 years

since the beginning of annual

home and away matches

between Kirwee and the West

Coast’s Paroa Tennis Club.

The club, which currently

has 31 seniors and 65 juniors,

will begin its celebrations with

drinks at the pavilion on Friday,

from 7.30pm.

This will be followed on Saturday

with social tennis at 1pm

and an exhibition doubles match

at 3pm. The doubles match is

expected to involve two former

Davis Cup players, although

names are yet to be confirmed,

playing with two club members.

A jubilee dinner will be held,

also on Saturday, from 6.30pm

at the Kirwee Community Hall.

The guest speaker will be former

Detective Inspector John Doyle

who was the first New Zealand

police officer to be based in

China and played tennis for

Paroa against Kirwee.

A plaque marking the jubilee

will also be unveiled by the

club’s oldest male member, while

the jubilee cake will be cut by

the oldest female member.

Celebrations will conclude

with the annual match between

Kirwee and Paroa on Sunday,

starting with morning tea at

10.30am.

The first two tennis courts

at Kirwee were formed in the

early days of the club at Kirwee

Domain, with the domain board

and the fledgling club each donating

five pounds.

The club moved to its present

location in the domain in 1936

with the opening of two new

courts and a pavilion. Over the

years, a further four courts have

been added.

All six courts were resurfaced

after the earthquakes caused

cracking at a cost of $92,000.

During the 1960s, the club enjoyed

its most successful period

in the Malvern competition,

when two of its teams finished

first and second in the Malvern

A grade competition.

The exchange matches with

Paroa began in 1966 as a result

of the relationship built between

Paroa player Richie Gibbens and

Kirwee player Murray Wilson

during the many meetings they

had when Malvern and West

Coast clashed in representative

tennis.

The club has won the A

grade tennis cup 33 times since

competitions began in 1926.

The modern Kirwee Gold and

Kirwee Black teams have been

adding to that total.

Kirwee has always had strong

representation at Malvern

level playing for the Browning

Shield, vied for by teams from

North Canterbury, Hurunui,

Ellesmere, Banks Peninsula,

Mid-Canterbury, West Coast

and Malvern.

Club member Malcolm Begg

THEN AND

NOW: The

Kirwee Tennis

Club facilities in

1936 and as they

are today. ​

said Kirwee was still one of the

strongest in Malvern and had

hosted a number of Browning

Shield representative matches

over the years.

A LATE order batting collapse

saw Weedons fall short in their

run chase against Oxford in the

latest round of the Canterbury

Country premier one day

competition.

Bowling first, pace bowlers

Sam Haselwood and Kane Mayerhoof

dismissed three of Oxford’s

top four batsmen for single

figures.

However, it was an experienced

campaigner at the other end

doing the damage for the visitors.

Canterbury and former Black

Cap Peter Fulton was a calming

presence as others fell around

him, top scoring with 40 runs

which included five boundaries.

Only three Oxford batsmen

scored in double figures as they

fell to be all out in the 42nd over

for 183. Mayerhoof and George

SPORTS

Batters let Weedons

down in run chase

Redpath both picked up three

wickets for Weedons.

Weedons run chase got off to

a promising start. Opener Josh

Watson top scored with 52 and

combined with Will Duncan for a

50-run fourth wicket partnership

to have the team at 103-2 after 26

overs.

A collapse saw Weedons lose

three wickets for just two runs.

This sparked a quick finish to

their hopes of a first win this

summer. They were bowled out

for 152 in the 40th over, 32 runs

short of their target.

It wasn’t a day to remember for

Weedons bowler Jonathan Green.

His bowling figures included one

wicket, 21 wides and a no-ball

from his five overs. He was then

dismissed for a one ball golden

duck in the second innings.

HORORATA PARISH SPRING FAIR -

WHO KNEW PUTTING DOWN TECHNOLOGY

COULD BE SO MUCH FUN!

It’s the annual Hororata Parish Spring Fair this Labour Day. Take a change of pace and return to some

good old-fashioned fun.

“We know families are looking for ways to just be in the moment, the fair provides tactile events, races

‘Spring in Your Step’ and your take on the traditional Ginger Bread Man. Watch out for your gumboots

and shoes,” warns fair organiser Lucy Cookson.

The Hororata Parish Spring Fair features a large number of market stalls specifically offering a range of

local products and produce. The White Elephant which fills the entire stables at the Hororata Domain is a

must, along with the unique Country Auction (11.30am kick-off) hosted by the infamous ‘Fred’ - be sure

to grab yourself a bargain!

This year there are 2 featured events:

Pedalmania - Just fun on wheels and thanks to our local Malvern Lions - no entry fees!

Hororata Great Race - The Hororata Primary School is hosting this new event taking its inspiration from

the TV “The Great Race”. All fitness levels will enjoy this version. Keep an eye out for more information

about this event coming through the local schools.

“Each year our community grows and diversifies. Although the Spring Fair is the biggest fundraiser

for the Hororata Parish, we also see it as a place where family and friends can have an enjoyable day

together,” says Lucy. “It is about bringing the community together. With free entry and easy onsite

parking the Spring Fair provides an inexpensive day out for families in a safe and welcoming setting.”

We are now surveying our community on what you would like our district’s environment to be like

in the future.

The survey is the start of a project which will run over the next few years to review the council’s

District Plan. The District Plan controls the activities allowed on different properties, where shops,

industrial areas and new housing is located and is also designed to protect our environment.

Selwyn is the fastest growing district in New Zealand so our district has been changing rapidly.

The survey aims to find out what people like about our district now and what they would like to

see in the future. As part of the District Plan review, more consultation is planned over the next

few years on specific topics.

“In May this year we carried out our annual Resident’s Survey which included a question about

whether people thought Selwyn was a great place to live. The survey found that most people

thought Selwyn was a great place to live and many people mentioned they liked Selwyn’s rural

feel or that our district had a good mix of townships and rural areas,” says Mel Renganathan, the

Council’s Strategy and Policy Advisor. “In this survey we want to find out what aspects of our

district help create the rural feel that people like.”

The survey is available at www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay. It takes around five minutes to

complete and is open until 4 December. By completing it you can go into a draw to win one of five

$100 prezzy vouchers. If you have questions about the survey please contact Mel on 347 2712 or

Emma on 347 2920 or email districtplanreview@selwyn.govt.nz

Some of the things the District Plan controls include:

· How much new development is allowed, where new sections are located and how sections and

homes are designed

· What type of buildings are allowed in different areas

restaurant

Tulips and daffodils are

blooming and the blossoms

budding in the enchanting garden

at Memorys Restaurant.

Whether calling in for a coffee,

tea or meal, Sue and Emma make

dining a special experience with

superbly healthy and original

dish. Her salad bowl is a permanent

change each week, it is immersed

with wonderful flavours combining

crisp light textured salad greens

including home grown produce,

such as fresh rocket, fennel and tasty

herbs. There are also a few surprises

like lovely imported pomegranates,

tossed through to add bright jewels

amongst the greens. Customers can

also add a little protein with smoked

salmon as a side.

The desserts change too, with

gluten, dairy free and refined sugar

free options available. They might

be a deconstructed donut or Greek

custard tart and the sweet platter

is on the menu all day, with bite

sized healthy options to satisfy the

taste buds without the guilt. Sweet

treats vary each day and might

include Cacao bliss balls, freeze

dried coconut slice, salted peanut

caramel fudge, a chocolate option

or a chicory coffee slice.

Relax in the sheltered courtyard;

dine in doors or in the gallery

room and take a stroll through

the herb garden, making it easy to

take a break away from everyday

life at Memorys Restaurant.

“We welcome people to pop

in and enjoy the ambience of

our place,” says Sue. “There are

croissants, scones, savouries and

our sweet treat platter for a light

snack with coffee, a tea or organic

Gardening

SELWYN TIMES

Work in advance for Xmas

With the warmer weather

comes the ever-knowing

awareness and

understanding that

Christmas is really not

that far away

TURN THE corner and we are

almost there.

Wise are those who plan and

work in advance. Unfortunately,

most of us wait until the last

minute to work on our gardens,

just before the big day arrives.

Often we find the task either

too big or too difficult, hence

a lot of us leave it incomplete

or even worse, don’t start at all.

Well, here are some simple tips

to improve your outdoor living

areas.

You can always let the cobwebs

inside take care of themselves, at

least they catch flies.

One: If your garden is too

much to handle then simplify it.

Look at what plants you have.

Your likes and dislikes. Too big

or too small? Leaf droppers or

sun blockers? The list goes on.

Ascertain what has to go and

get rid of them. You may be

surprised at how simple things

make a big difference.

Two: Remember, often less is

best. At this stage you may need

to seek some professional advice

to help keep in mind the picture

you want to create.

Three: If your garden and

plant maintenance is high and

you’re finding it hard to cope,

then weed out the problem. For

AESTHETICS: Raised gardens add a point of interest.

example, it just maybe time to

realise that the roses are no longer

suitable. Remember you can

always substitute them with an

alternative plant.

Four: Consider building

raised gardens with timber or

garden sleepers. Besides adding

a point of interest, you have the

added benefits of a well drained

garden that is easier to maintain.

You may even consider split

level gardens which will add an

aesthetic value to your piece of

paradise.

Five: Consider plants that

either give off scent or produce

food. This is an increasingly

popular trend, with the benefits

of producing organic fruit and

vegetables being both healthy for

the body, good for the soul and

satisfying for the pocket.

Six: Make your garden as

maintenance-free as possible.

Consider alternatives to bark and

mulch using non-organic product

such as decorative stone and

using a quality non-woven weed

matt for weed control.

Seven: Consider painting or

staining timber fences, retaining

walls and other wooden structures.

This will give a fresh look

and can be colour co-ordinated

to enhance your overall look and

design.

Eight: If the task is too much

or you need some advice call

your professional landscaper for

help. There may be things you

haven’t considered.

Get outside and go potty

GARDENING IN pots is a

spectacularly rewarding and low

labour hobby.

Instead of battling the elements,

treating tired old soil,

weeding and digging frantically,

you simply tip the prepared

perfect potting mix into the

container, follow it up with the

plants, water and wait. It’s hard

to go wrong.

You just move the pot around

until you’ve found the perfect

sunny or shady spot, without

disturbing the root system,

because a container garden is

portable.

You can move it about your

home, patio or garden to fill

bare spots at any time of year.

And best of all, when you move

house, you don’t have to leave

your cherished garden behind –

they all shift with the furniture.

Furthermore, container gardens

look great anywhere – as

hanging baskets on terraces and

pergolas, half round containers

spilling colour down a wall or

fence, or simply sitting on paved

areas, decks and steps. For best

effect, plan your planter by

height as well as colour.

You can mix annuals with

a central perennial until the

perennial gets well established,

and in the meantime, enjoy a

miniature garden rather than a

miniature plant surrounded by

bare earth.

You can dispense with the annuals

when the perennial takes

over.

Container gardeners can

pretty much give up weeding

altogether. But you don’t need

to do a bit of soil maintenance

from time to time, because the

plants aren’t in a self renewing

envi- ronment – they’re relying

on you to give them nutrition

and moisture.

Potted plants can dry out

fast. Some will need watering

up to twice a day in the hotter

months, particularly those

in terracotta and other porous

pots.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

I am new to Canterbury and am wondering what things can I do when

planting my new gardens to prepare for the much drier summer months?

Choosing your growing

Answer: mix is important, you

will want to make sure

you have a good quality soil and/or compost

mixture. Carefully selecting your plants for the

climate is important too. If you choose plants that

aren’t very drought tolerant, and you aren’t able to

provide them with the amount of watering as they

need, then these may not be the plants for you.

How you water your plants is very important too.

When watering, make sure that you give them a

good long soak once or twice a week for a couple

of hours, rather than a light sprinkle each day.

This helps to get

the plant’s roots deeper in the ground, reduce fungal

diseases and gives the plants a greater reservoir to draw

from. Adding mulch around the drip line will also help to

conserve moisture, and suppress weeds, which is ideal

as weeds will fight you plants for the water and nutrients.

Gardening

SELWYN TIMES

Water has a calming and cooling effect

IN THE heat of summer, water

brings a welcome cooling effect

to any garden and its use is

one that every gardener should

consider.

Water’s cooling magic works in

two ways – physical and psychological

– and understanding

these helps the gardener best

harness its powers.

Jumping into a cool pool is

a great way of chilling out on a

hot day, but even if we don’t take

the plunge, a body of water has a

cooling effect because evaporation

from its surface helps cool

the surrounding air.

This air-cooling effect is greatest

when water is splashed or

dispersed into small droplets,

because this tends to increase the

amount that evaporates. And if

some is splashed onto our skins

and clothing, we notice this

cooling effect directly.

Water’s psychological cooling

powers are partly due to association.

We have all been exposed

to its physical cooling features,

so even just thinking about a

gushing waterfall or bush pool

helps us feel cooler.

Seeing or hearing water has an

even greater effect than imagining

it. There’s a further way

water seems to help us chill out

on a hot day. This is due to its

EFFECTIVE: Use a statue with flowing water in an untidy corner to give it some life, however, a pump and water supply will be

necessary.

calming effects. It’s hard to feel

hot and bothered when contemplating

a calm sheet of water or

when soothed by the sounds

of water trickling, gurgling or

gently splashing.

Even the impersonal, repetitive

crash of strong surf can have a

remarkably calming effect. The

question for the gardener is how

best to exploit these combined

cooling powers of water in the

summer garden, keeping in

mind that the same cooling

effects could also be an unwelcome

in winter.

Even the smallest garden

space can use water effectively.

For example, on a patio you can

enjoy the sight and sound of

water trickling over the edges

of a simple receptacle or simple,

sculptured shape before being

recycled through a small

pump.

You will find examples of these

at most garden centres, some

complete with pump. All you

need is access to power, which

on a patio usually doesn’t create

major problems.

Alternatively, you can purchase

a pump separately and

design your own water spilling

feature if have reasonable handyman

skills. When choosing or

designing such a feature, consider

the merits of a piece that

will look good when the water

is not flowing because this may

prove a more attractive option in

winter.

Another way to incorporate

water in a small space is to

purchase or make a water spout.

Traditional examples include

wall-mounted ones with water

gushing out of a lion’s mouth but

simple abstract spouts or those

featuring natural materials can

be as or more attractive.

Again you will need a small

pump to recycle the water from

where it falls back to its source.

Other ways to use water on a

patio are in small containers,

such as raised oblong troughs

bordered by appropriate plants

to soften their base.

Waterfalls are harder to incorporate

on the patio. A fairly

popular interpretation is made

of a series of tiny stacked ponds

mounted in a corner.

October in the garden

HOPEFULLY, THE highs

and lows of spring have

departed by now and the

weather has become more

settled. But be sure to keep

an eye out for the possibility

of late frosts.

October is a very active

month in the vegetable

garden. Before planting

add in copious amounts of

compost to help create an

ideal growing medium for

newly planted seeds and

seedlings.

Vege plants for the summer

garden can include

capsicum, courgettes, cucumbers,

eggplants (aubergine),

peppers, pumpkin,

tomatoes and watermelon.

Maintain a close watch

for slugs and snails that will

devour young seedlings.

A light side dressing with

vegetable fertiliser will help

young plants become well

established. Water deeply

when required, to encourage

young plants to develop

a deep root system.

Preparation for your

summer flowering ‘bed’

should begin in early October,

including the addition

of compost. Summer flowering

annuals can include

alyssum, asters, cornflowers,

californian poppy,

REWARD: Now is the time to prepare your summer

flowering bed.

cosmos, lobelia, livingston

daisies, marigolds, nemesia,

petunias, portulacas,

phlox, salvia, sweet pea

and zinnia.

Spring blossoms should

now be finished on pip

stone fruit trees; apples,

apricots, nectarines,

peaches, pears and plums,

with small fruit starting to

form. Many of these trees

have what can be described

as ‘heavy post-blossom

fruit drop’ and often only

5-10 per cent of their blossoms

will actually become

mature fruit, usually

enough for a ‘heavy crop’.

Apply fruit tree fertiliser at

5-6 weekly intervals.

Shrubs that have flowered

during the winter

months, for example,

azaleas and camellias

may require some ‘tidy

up’ pruning before new

growth commences. With

all shrubs, a side dressing

of general garden fertiliser

will encourage strong

healthy growth.

Mulching with compost

around the shrubs will help

inhibit weed growth and

retain soil moisture, which

is very important as the

weather heats up.

International

competitiveness potential

talking point at AGM

Dairy farmers’ ability

to remain internationally

competitive is likely to

be a hot topic when dairy

industry and research

body, DairyNZ, reviews

the past year at its Annual

General Meeting next

week.

DairyNZ is holding

its AGM in Ashburton

from 11am on Thursday,

October 27, at Hotel

Ashburton.

Industry body chairman

Michael Spaans says the

AGM will review the

2015/16 dairy season,

including the low milk

price challenges, and

discuss DairyNZ’s highlights for the year

and future direction.

“All New Zealand dairy farmers

contribute funding to DairyNZ via a

Diary New Zealand

Chairman, Michael

Spaans

milksolids levy so we are

here to work for all farmers,

helping with immediate

challenges such as low milk

price through to undertaking

long-term industry-wide

research,” Mr Spaans says.

The recent dairy industry

seasons have reaffirmed the

cyclical nature of farming

and that farmers must ensure

their businesses are set-up

to cope with greater price

volatility.

“The long period of low

milk prices our industry

has faced reminds us all

how important it is to run

productive and profitable

businesses,” he says.

“Looking back on the past year, which

has inevitably challenged many farmers’

profitability, I am encouraged to see, yet

again, that dairy farmers can and do adapt,

and as an industry we remain competitive

internationally.”

In 2015/16, $67 million was collected

through the milksolids levy, along

with additional government funding.

DairyNZ’s work includes research and

development to create practical on-farm

tools, leadership of good practice farming,

promoting careers in dairying and

advocating for farmers with central and

regional government.

In 2015-16, Canterbury farmers

produced 385 million kilograms of

milksolids, worth $1.5 billion. The dairy

industry’s milk production benefitted the

regional economy by $830 million GDP

(gross domestic product) in 2015-16 and

provided over 6300 jobs on-farm and a

further 1200 in milk processing.

“This is around 7500 jobs – from on-farm

through to processing and wholesaling,”

Mr Spaans says.

“Dairy is a big part of the local

Canterbury economy – and many others

nationwide – so it is vital to ensure the

industry is competitive internationally

and product is produced by resilient,

responsible businesses.”

Local industry research during 2015/16

has already made good gains in developing

farm options that could reduce nitrate

leaching in the region, while retaining a

pasture-based, profitable system.

Mr Spaans says the next season would

continue to be challenging for dairy

farmers, as they continue to focus on

operating under the low milk price.

“The goal to support profitable farm

systems has not changed. Being more

efficient and utilising pasture is key to

locking in the gains in operating costs, as

milk price moves to a more sustainable

level.”

Access to food essential

for better urban planning

Access to staples of the New Zealand food

basket, such as carrots, potatoes, onions

and leafy greens, must be a consideration

on the table in urban planning, says

Horticulture New Zealand chief executive

Mike Chapman.

Horticulture New Zealand has made

a submission on the Productivity

Commission’s draft report Better Urban

Planning.

The draft report suggests different ways of

delivering urban planning in New Zealand

to meet changing demands.

“Parts of the New Zealand food supply

chain are, in our view, being affected by

constraints on production because of

competition for suitable land for housing,

and access to water,” Mr Chapman says.

“Effects of shortages, or no supply, may

result in increased prices for access to food

staples such as carrots, potatoes, onions and

leafy greens.

“Horticulture is a growth industry in New

Zealand, making an important contribution

to the economy, including through jobs by

employing about 60,000 people.

“As a core element of New Zealand’s food

network we need room to grow, alongside

expanding urban areas. It would be a

serious planning failure for New Zealand to

have food shortages and to have to import

fresh fruit and vegetables that can be grown

here.”

It would be a serious planning

failure for New Zealand to have

food shortages and to have to

import fresh fruit and vegetables

that can be grown here

Areas where Horticulture New Zealand

has concerns in the draft report include:

regulating the built environment to consider

effects on rural zoned land; the ability for

industry groups, such as Horticulture New

Zealand, to participate in the planning

process; and the ability for each council

in New Zealand to approach planning

issues on the same basis. The organisation

believes there is a balance that needs to be

found in streamlining and cutting red tape

for urban development and ensuring that

councils meet community needs, such as

the ability to eat domestically grown fruit

and vegetables.

“Overall, Horticulture New Zealand

agrees with the approach of the Productivity

Commission, but having land to grow fruit

and vegetables is critical to horticulture’s

ongoing growth and our ability to feed New

Zealand, so the submission process is a

valuable one,” Mr Chapman says.

The Productivity Commission’s final

report on urban planning is due to

Government on November 30.

COOKING and restaurant

service skills have earned

two Burnham-based

soldiers gold medals in the

competition.

Private Nicholas Todd

and Private Kimberly

De Schot were among

67 entrants from around

the country to showcase

their skills at the Waikato

Hamilton.

They have also been

selected for the Tool

early next year, and later

for the 2017 WorldSkills

in Abu Dhabi.

The competition in

and fashion and social and

personal services.

a specific project

over two days, replicating

they would encounter in

their daily jobs.

day at Burnham Military

Camp and said he believed

his time in the military

had been good preparation

when it came to performing

under pressure.

“Especially with our

training, they are quite

hard on us,” he said.

Private De Schot, who

serves as a steward in the

army, had competed in a

number of army competitions

before. She said winning

at the national level

had been a surprise and a

good experience.

“Putting in the effort

and winning was just a

bonus and it goes to show

that hard work and training

does pay off,” she said.

Pasifika Trades Training leads

to new career for Charity

Receiving a Pasifika Trades Training

scholarship has been a game-changer for

Charity Ierome. After completing a 12-

week Essential Civil Skills course at Ara

Institute of Canterbury for free, she now

has a clear career path and a new outlook.

“The biggest thing it’s done for me is

build up my confidence. Before I felt like

nobody and now I know that I can achieve

and what I want to do in the future,” she

says.

Charity used to work in the butchery at

Pak n Save, but knew it wasn’t what she

wanted to do long-term. Her Dad found

out about the Pasifika Trades Training

scholarship through Reverend Fitifiti

Lautua, a mentor for the programme.

With so many opportunities in

Canterbury, Charity says that trades

training was a good career move and it

made financial sense.

“It was a chance for me to do something

for myself and make a better living for my

family. My Nana was my inspiration. I

wanted to make sure she was well looked

after back in Samoa,” she says.

Studying for 12 weeks full-time was a

big commitment for Charity, who also

continued to work full-time. However, the

backing of her tutor and classmates helped

her to succeed.

“My tutor had experienced the kind of

difference that a qualification can make in

your life and he was a real role model. My

class became my second family,” she says.

The course was exactly what Charity

needed to get into the industry. It included

the core practical skills and certifications

that employers look for, and provided

support to enter the workforce.

“The most valuable thing I learned was

how to get work-ready. I was taught how

to approach an interview and what to put

in my CV. We also had potential employers

come to talk to us,” she says.

Just two weeks after completing her

qualification, Charity was offered a job at

City Care. She is now a Traffic Management

Site Supervisor, wants to work towards

a degree and has her sights set on a

management role.

“It’s like I’m on a totally different planet

now. Studying has changed who I am and

it has changed my family’s future,” she says.

Outdoor entertaining

In the warmer weather it is great

to entertain outdoors. The children

can play while the adults chill or

join in on a game of cricket, soccer

or volleyball.

Successful outdoor entertaining

is often linked to good food and

drink however there can be more

to ensuring everyone has a good

time.

Some people love sitting in the

sun while others seek shade so

establishing outdoor living spaces

that are sunny yet also have some

shade and wind shelter, at different

times of the day, will help ensure

comfort for all.

Umbrellas, shade sails, awnings,

pull down blinds, pergolas or

planting a hedge are all ways to

create shade. Umbrellas come in a

range of sizes with some able to be

tilted to block out the evening sun.

However, they not very stable in

the wind so only really suitable in

a sheltered spot.

Shade sails are generally the

most effective way to block out

the sun while withstanding high

winds. These can be made to fit

a certain area and if well-made,

are worry free though there is a

little work in putting them up and

taking them down, so once up

are likely to be there all season.

Awnings or canopies which are

permanently fixed in place are also

an option.

With large gatherings, many

people are happy to stand and

chat though not everyone will

be comfortable standing for

long periods. Seating might be

constructed around decks and

paved areas or incorporated into

raised garden beds to supplement

outdoor dining and lounge suites.

Alternatively, guests might be

asked to bring camp chairs.

If catering for a group vary the

food served and unless a keen

gourmet, keep the menu simple,

preparing ahead so you have

time to spend with your guests.

Alternatively, you might ask guests

to bring pot luck or certain dishes,

or meat for the barbecue and

remember to be a responsible host,

ensuring sufficient food and nonalcoholic

drinks are provided.

Count the number of utensils,

plates and glasses likely to

be needed, buying or hiring

more if required or purchasing

disposables. Add a little extra to

ensure there is sufficient.

The weather can never be

planned for so have a plan B. If

the day turns cold or wet, you

may simply retreat indoors, to the

garage or have shelter rigged up in

advance using tarpaulins or a tent.

To keep warm a brazier might

be used, if there are no fire bans in

place, while an outdoor fireplace

or gas fire will add ambience. An

outdoor wooden or gas fire or a

pizzeria might be included when

the home is constructed or built

as a standalone feature when

landscaping.

A portable gas fire might also

be considered which can be

moved around for use in other

places and does not require a

building consent.

Good hosts provide

for the needs of their

guests so they have

a good time.

Barbecuing for friends

Precooked or gourmet sausages are a

Kiwi barbecue classic. They are affordable,

quick to cook and popular with adults and

children alike. Other favourites are mince

patties, steak and chicken pieces while

roasts are an easy alternative.

Meat roasted on the barbecue will be

particularly tender when cooked slowly, at

a low temperature. The size of the cut will

determine the cooking time. Raw ham for

instance may be cooked for several hours

while a cooked ham might also be baked

on low for about an hour. Hot ham is

delicious in bread rolls or with salads.

When roasting lamb, hogget or mutton

try piercing the skin with a sharp knife

and inserting sage leaves and short stalks

of fresh rosemary in the holes. Sprinkle

with salt and pepper then using the

rotisserie or placing the meat directly

on the plate, cook on high for fifteen

minutes to seal in the juices. Reduce the

temperature to 150 degrees Celsius and

roast for another hour and a half to two

hours. The fat will cook out of the meat

leaving it succulent and falling off the

bone.

Beef also lends itself to barbecue

roasting. Its cooking time will depend on

the cut. Cuts that take longer to cook may

benefit from being marinated. Marinades

can be purchased readymade or mixed

up using a little oil, garlic, sauce like soy

and seasoning. The meat can be left in the

marinade for twenty minutes to two days

unless the marinade is acidic in which

case the maximum time is two hours.

Cheaper cuts like blade steak benefit from

marinating before frying.

Roasting chicken on the barbecue is

also easy though be sure that it is cooked

through. Try inserting an opened full can

of beer into the cavity of the chicken then

stand it upright in a hooded barbecue to

cook. The meat will be tasty with a subtle

beer flavour.

Pork also benefits from seasoning or

being marinated. Coat the meat in Hoisin

sauce before cooking on high for half an

hour then slowly roast on the rotisserie

or hot plate, basting with more sauce

if needed during the cooking process.

Other seasonings can be added with

plenty of recipes available on the Internet.

Pork will also benefit from sitting after

early preparation to allow the flavours to

permeate the meat before cooking.

Serve roast meat with fresh bread, rolls,

potatoes thinly sliced and fried on the hot

plate, and healthy salads. Any vegetable

that can be eaten raw might be included.

Tasty salad additions that add colour

and are high in nutrients include: rocket,

grated beetroot and carrot, radishes,

cucumber, pumpkin and sunflower seeds,

tomatoes, boiled eggs, and herbs like

parsley, coriander, Borage and Calendula

flowers.

To finish off the meal, icecream might

be served with fruit, jelly or Pavlova;

parfaits made out of fruit, cream and

icecream; or icecream sodas where fizz

drink is simply poured over a scoop of

icecream for a favourite

Sprucing up the yard

A lush green garden makes a lovely backdrop to the

home. Tall trees and shrubs offer shelter and shade

producing enjoyable places to linger. However, over

time the garden can become overgrown, even when

tended regularly and a good clean-up is needed.

Rather than chopping trees down, consider

undertaking some serious pruning and shaping to

thin the tree. Some branches may be cut out to let

light in and open up the garden.

If the trees are tall, an arborist may be contracted

to top these and cut out unwanted limbs allowing

the shape of the tree to be maintained. Arborists are

experts in dropping trees safely and will advise on

any disease a tree might have and how it might be

saved.

With smaller trees and shrubs, a good saw or

chainsaw and lopping shears can be used to thin and

shape them so light penetrates through and other

plants have space to grow.

Prune back shrubs that are overtaking the garden

and may be smothering other plants. Thin at the

bottom also to allow space for lower growing plants,

ground covers and flowers which add colour and

interest to the garden. Now is also the time to cut

out frost damage from plants and spray any that are

diseased.

If there are gaps, it is a good time to plant out and a

visit to the nursery is bound to find some interesting

new plants to add into the garden.

Giving the garden a general weeding then topping

up with bark, mulch, pea straw or another ground

cover will make the garden tidy and help trap in

moisture, assisting the garden over summer.

Older lawns may need dethatching either by hand

raking or using a scarifying machine. Like brushing

your hair, this takes out the dead and cut grass,

helping the lawn to absorb moisture and grow more

easily.

The lawn should also be sprayed periodically

using a specific lawn weed killer that kills broadleaf

weeds and clover. Take care not to use a weed killer

like Round-up as this will kill weeds and lawn alike.

If moss is growing in the lawn, a combined moss

killer and fertiliser product can be purchased for

this job.

For an even and consistent lawn, spread soil over

any dips and hollows before re-seeding any bald

parts. Occasionally applying a fertiliser to the lawn

will also help to achieve a lush green lawn.

Turning your attention

to the paths and paving,

sweep these then spray

weeds growing in the

cracks, path joins and

between paving slabs.

Treat any moss on paths,

paving or decking by

spraying with de-moss

treatment. This can be

purchased from a garden

or hardware centre. The

moss might also need

to be water blasted to

remove it completely.

Lastly, replace any

rotten or damaged boards

on the deck before restaining

to freshen up a faded

timber deck, pergola or wooden

outdoor tables and seating.

Decks, patios and paving

The choice of a deck, concrete patio

or paving will largely be influenced by

personal preference.

Patios and paving are low maintenance

and last longer than a deck, the aesthetics

of which is more appealing.

One advantage of a deck is the seamless

movement it creates from house to

outdoor living area. With no need to step

down, there is a feeling of having a larger

home with an outside room, especially if

the roof overhangs a part of this area or

there is a pergola structure overhead.

Concrete patios can be smooth and

grey, coloured or exposed aggregate

and lines can be cut into the concrete to

create a paved effect. When raised off the

ground, the cost of the concrete may make

the patio more expensive than a wooden

deck would be. However, concrete patios

are easy to keep clean and the concrete

lasts considerably longer than wood. It

will also be a smooth splinter-free surface

on which children can play. On the down

side, concrete heats up with the sun and

can be glary.

Paving is easy to lay and change. It is

also reasonably easy to maintain though

the pavers can shift over time causing

an uneven surface, especially if the

foundation on which they were laid has

not been prepared properly. Dirt can also

build up in the cracks causing weeds to

grow, resulting in the need to spray or

scrape these out.

If choosing a deck, options include

pine, hardwood, bamboo or a composite

wood look product.

Radiata pine is the most affordable

wood for decking. It has the advantage

of being treated and is available with a

smooth surface or grip tread though is

perhaps the least attractive of the decking

timbers available.

Currently hardwood decks are very

popular, due to the attractiveness of the

wood. Hardwood can bleed and stain

surrounding concrete and brickwork and

it will need regular staining to minimise

the chance of it splitting and maintain its

rich golden brown colour, something that

could be a chore.

Kwila, vitex, Pacific jarrah and garapa

are popular decking hardwood timbers.

They can be purchased smooth cut or

with a tread on one side. While Kwila

is the most popular, you might wish to

check out that the timber has come from a

sustainable source.

A decking product that is relatively new

to the New Zealand market is bamboo. If

sourced from a credible supplier such as

the local Christchurch brand, Evoca, then

bamboo is said to be environmentally

friendly. Bamboo’s advantage as a decking

timber is its density and strength.

Still more hardy and permanent are the

natural wood looking composite products.

These are made out of recycled materials

and come in a range of colours. While

pricier than wood, composite decking is

said to be non-slip, hold its colour, and not

warp, crack or splinter the way wood can;

features that make it pleasant to walk on

in bare feet or for the children to play on.

Driven

Fuel-friendly Toyota Corolla hybrid

• By Ross Kiddie • Price – Toyota Prius, $47,490

MY SUSPICIONS have

been confirmed – I’m not an

economical driver.

How did I come to this

conclusion? Well, Toyota New

Zealand invited me to the launch

of the new Corolla hybrid, and

the event was held at Feilding’s

Manfeild Autocourse facility.

As a group of journalists we

were tasked with the challenge

of driving the vehicles around

the track, and obstacles, against

the clock for a set distance,

yet trying to achieve the most

economical fuel usage result.

While my figures were midfield

and a lot better than some

of the group, the winners had

results vastly better than mine.

There was some conjecture as to

the method some drivers used

to achieve winning figures, but

the reality is that even though I

thought I was being light-footed,

I wasn’t.

What the exercise served to

prove is that the Corolla hybrid

can be made a very economical

car to drive. Toyota rate it with

a 4.1-litre per 100km (69mpg)

combined cycle average, which

was close to where my Manfeild

figure sat.

On my home turf and after

driving the car for four days,

TOYOTA COROLLA: Hybrid technology borrowed from Prius.

the trip computer was listing a

6l/100km (47mpg) average when

I took it back to the dealership.

Those, along with a 4l/100km

instantaneous figure when

cruising the open road speed

limit, are good results for a

vehicle which will be sold on the

basis that it is a fuel miser.

The hybrid sits near the top

of the Corolla range, joining the

seven-model line-up at $38,490,

bearing in mind that the range

starts at $31,990 and ends at

$41,990. The hybrid is GLXbased,

which means it doesn’t

get all the specification items

that are offered in other variants,

but it does get a reasonable level

of fitment which will satisfy

those who want a car where

economy is more important that

status.

Based around the mechanicals

which have made Prius a

household word in terms of

hybrid technology, the Corolla

hybrid utilises a 1.8-litre petrol

engine coupled to the Synergy

system which transfers drive

though a continuously variable

automatic transmission.

The combination develops

a total of around 100kW and

142Nm, varying at any given

time depending on whether the

engine is active and/or batteries

are supplying the drive.

Of course, electric propulsion

is the ultimate aim, and if

situations allowed, that would

be the case but, of course,

• Dimensions – Length,

4540mm; width, 1760mm;

height, 1475mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

1798cc, 90kW, 142Nm, CVT.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11sec

• Fuel usage – 3.4l/100km

battery capacity is constantly

exhausted, and as a vehicle it

is required to accelerate and

maintain momentum, which is

why the petrol engine operates

at will. However, hybrid systems

are here to stay, and until there

are alternative technologies

in place it is the best option

for those whose welfare of the

environment is a major car

buying factor.

When it comes time to tackle

a quick corner or two it steers

with precision and reacts

favourably to steering input. If

you also take into account that

the batteries create a more even

front/rear weight distribution,

body balance is controlled, and

there is just gentle movement

over the suspension.

The latter is a fully independent

type which is in contrast to the

tube beam system of its nonhybrid

stablemates. I’ve long

been an advocate of independent

rear suspension, and the doublewishbone

system of the hybrid

is absorbent yet allows wheel

freedom which is translated into

control under load.

The tyres are a low rolling

resistance Michelin compound

(205/55 x 16in), nevertheless,

they have enough grip on offer to

combat gravitational force under

pressure, and offer substantial

steering feel for the driver.

The Corolla hybrid can’t be

considered a quick car, but it will

return a standstill to 100km/h

acceleration time of 11sec,

which suggests that it is still

has respectable speed for which

we have come to expect from

mainstream Corollas.

Toyota has a raft of hybrid

models on the domestic market,

and here in New Zealand we

only get handful of variants

with many of those coming via

Lexus.

That being the case, the

Corolla hybrid is an important

car for Toyota New Zealand,

and if you consider it sits neatly

between Prius C ($29,990), Prius

($47,490) and Camry ($50,790),

it is a tempting proposition

for those who have come to

embrace the hybrid concept,

or for those who just want to

experience it for the first time.

No more trying to find

a plumber on a Saturday.

We can take care of the details when it comes to managing your

investment property, giving you more time to relax.

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 find out how we can add

value to your rental investment.

Make your home eco-friendly

Early New Zealand houses were

aligned with the street rather

than the sun. Today, we design

homes to maximise the sun

particularly in the living areas, reducing

the amount of heating required. If your

home is older and the sunniest room

in the house is the bathroom, consider

reconfiguring the layout!

Solar panels

In a country with abundant sun and

warmth, it seems extraordinary that solar

energy isn’t our first choice for water heating.

Initial setup costs are recouped quickly and

even if your solar panels supplement your

electricity usage, you’ve still saved on the

bills and done your bit for conservation.

Exterior cladding

While low maintenance materials are

often viewed as eco-friendly, the most

natural and renewable resource is timber.

As a large producer of timber, it’s not

surprising that NZ still uses it widely for

framing if not for exterior cladding.

Windows

Double glazed windows ensure your home

conserves heat and can be fitted in both

new and existing homes. Complemented

by tinting and/or insect screens, they also

reduce summer glare and heat, protect from

insects and allow passive flow of fresh air

thus reducing reliance on air conditioning.

Insulation

Insulate, insulate, insulate! Nothing

improves the internal environment more

effectively. For dedicated environmentalists,

the use of wool insulation may be

considered, both for its effectiveness and

fire retardant properties.

Walls, tiles and floors

Dark coloured floor tiles and thermomass

interior walls absorb heat and slow release

it later in the day. If that’s not an option,

a sun-drenched interior wall painted in a

dark colour can have a similar though less

effective result. Eco paints made without

harsh chemicals are becoming increasingly

popular and solution-dyed synthetic carpets

are kinder to asthma and allergy sufferers.

Heating

To reduce air pollution, we have

introduced cleaner burning appliances

such as pellet fires, approved wood burning

stoves and gas fires, as well as various forms

of electrical heating such as underfloor,

warm air circulation systems and heat

pumps. Central heating of air or water-filled

radiators is also efficient, using a single

energy source to warm several rooms.

Other eco-friendly ideas

• Install a rain water tank for garden

irrigation or car wash

• Recycle your rubbish

• Use low-wattage light bulbs

• Wrap hot water cylinders to retain heat

• Choose thermal lined drapes

• Buy appliances with optimum

energy ratings

• Turn off appliances when not in use

• Fix any dripping taps to conserve water

• Cut back trees and foliage close

to the house

• Let the sunshine in – even in winter
