Plea for

councillors

to work

for all of

the district

• By Tom Doudney

NEWLY-ELECTED district

councillors have been called on

to make sure they put the good

of Selwyn ahead of

appeasing voters in their

own wards.

The call comes from

former district councillor

Jack Pearcy (right),

who served for 25 years

until 2010.

The district councillor’s,

elected earlier this

month, will be sworn in tomorrow’s

meeting and a deputy mayor

will be chosen. Mayor-elect Sam

Broughton has chosen not to exercise

his right

to choose the deputy mayor so

the position will instead be

decided by a vote from district

councillors.

Mr Pearcy, a Leeston resident,

said district councillors should

read the declaration they make

when being sworn in carefully.

The wording requires them to declare

that they will act “faithfully

and impartially” in “the

best interests of the district

of Selwyn.”

He said the purpose of

the ward system was to

ensure people were elected

from a variety of different

areas but district councillors

still had to make the

best decisions for Selwyn

as a whole, even if that was sometimes

unpopular with voters in

their own ward.

He said they had not always

done so in the past.

“From time to time it has been a

disaster and [that applies to] some

councillors more than others,” Mr

Pearcy said. •Turn to page 5

GOOD FIGURES: Rolleston’s Jacquie and Dan Hibbs have both tasted national success in

bodybuilding this month. ​

Success for bodybuilding couple

• By Tom Doudney

A ROLLESTON couple’s

finely-chiselled physiques and

shared passion for healthy

living have propelled them

to national bodybuilding

success, beating much younger

competitors.

Jacquie Hibbs, 44, recently

won the women’s national

figure title at the New Zealand

International Federation of

Bodybuilding competition in

Wellington, a week after winning

the Waikato figure title.

Her husband, Dan Hibbs, 40,

won his under 70kg class and

was runner-up in the overall

men’s competition.

Mrs Hibbs success was also

notable because before this

month she had only competed

in one previous bodybuilding

competition and that was 18

years ago.

After her first competition,

when she was 26, finishing

second in the South Island and

third nationally at the National

Amateur Bodybuilding Association

Championships. However,

since then work, study

and family commitments, including

having three children,

had kept her sidelined.

She was very pleased to win.

“It was awesome, you

couldn’t really achieve any better

than that,” she said.

Mr Hibbs, a former 2008

and 2010 Mr New Zealand,

will compete for the fifth time

at the World Body Building

Championships in Spain on

November 5. He will be the

highest ranking amateur New

Zealand competitor at the

competition, having finished

fifth at the same event in 2011.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

SELWYN TIMES

News..................................... 3-11

A GOOD call from Jack Pearcy

on page 1 today, urging the new

council to work together for the

district – not their own wards,

and agendas.

In a big and widespread

district like Selwyn there is

always going to be trade-offs

behind the scenes; that is: “I’ll

support that, if you support

this.”

But in 2017 and beyond the

people who plot, plan and lead

Selwyn into the future will

need to be very global in their

outlook and thinking; there

should be no place for insular

and self-interest decisionmaking.

That will be easier said than

done, and the first year of

Mayor Sam Broughton’s term

will set the tone for what lies

ahead for the district. – Barry

Clarke

Early fire season warning

• By Tom Doudney

THE FIRE danger in Selwyn

is expected to be higher than

normal this summer.

Rolleston Volunteer Fire

Brigade chief Nigel Lilley said

weather predictions showed a

55 per cent chance of above

average temperatures from

November to December and the

soil moisture levels in Selwyn

were currently drier than the

same time last year or the

historical average.

Fire officers from across

Selwyn, both urban and rural,

recently held a pre-fire season

planning meeting with the

district council’s emergency

management team.

“When a fire starts in a rural

area it is often hard to control.

Strong summer winds, dry

vegetation, distances from fire

stations and shortage of water

combine to make rural fires

dangerous and unpredictable,”

Mr Lilley said.

Principal rural fire officer

Douglas Marshall said staff

would be regularly reviewing

weather conditions over the

summer and making decisions

on fire seasons in conjunction

with discussions with fire

chiefs and members of the rural

PREPARATION:

Volunteer

training with a

helicopter and

dam. ​

community.

While the district

was dryer than last year, rain

across the district in the past

two weeks had been helpful.

“If the combination of say

10-20mm per week and warmer

weather would continue then

farmers, gardeners, firefighters

and the public would be a bit

more comfortable heading into

the summer period,” Mr Marshall

said.

Mr Lilley said the public

could help during times of high

fire danger by avoiding outdoor

activities that generated heat or

sparks, cutting lawns and paddocks

during safe periods such

as in the early morning after a

cool night, and watering them

when permitted to keep them

green.

People could also help by

keeping their properties accessible

to fire appliances.

“Access to driveways and water

supplies must have a width

and height clearance of at least

4m,” Mr Lilley said.

“If we can’t get to you, we

can’t help you.”

A group of 15 new rural

firefighters from around the

district have been undergoing

essential training over winter

and spring in preparation for

the fire season. Several were

from Darfield’s volunteer rural

fire force, which formed last

year.

Their training included how

to use a new helicopter dip dam

which holds 25,000 litres of

water and is collapsible making

it easy to transport to fire

scenes.

It allows for the quick filling

of monsoon buckets and doesn’t

require firefighters to be underneath

the helicopter to fill it,

reducing risks.

In Brief

DISTRICT PLAN SURVEY

The district council is surveying the

community on what people would

like the district’s environment to

be like in the future. The survey is

the start of a larger project which

will run over the next few years to

review the council’s District Plan.

The survey is available at www.

selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay until

December 4. By completing it

people go into a draw to win one of

five $100 vouchers.

TREE SPARKS FIRE

A tree which fell near West

Melton on Wednesday morning

temporarily blocked Sandy Knolls

Rd and brought down power lines

which started a hedge fire. The

tree fell on the north side of the

intersection with State Highway 73.

PIG FARM

The owners of a pig farm near

Burnham have appealed a

commissioner’s decision to

shut their pig farm down to the

Environment Court. Chris and

Melanie Bates and their son Henry

have operated the pig farm on

Thompsons Rd since 2012. The

Bates’ application to renew their

resource consent was declined

by an independent hearing panel

last month with commissioners

citing concerns over how dust from

the farm affected neighbouring

properties.

The new mayor’s plan

Sam Broughton

writes about his

first two weeks

as Selwyn’s

mayor-elect and

what residents

can expect from the district

council in the coming years

Saturday of election day began

with brunch with the family

to discuss a project we were all

working on. I think the family

had decided it would be good to

be together to help fill in the hours

before we heard the result and then

either celebrate or commiserate

together.

The call caught me by surprise at

1.30pm, the morning had rushed by.

It was a positive result and while my

family started screaming, the weight

of the responsibility and a sense of

relief were forefront in my mind,

as well as feeling sad for those who

were not elected.

The following day, I was able to

touch base with the other successful

candidates and congratulate them.

There was a good sense of anticipation

between us and as we met

one-on-one over the following week.

Through these meetings, a picture

started to emerge of how we would

operate and which play buttons need

to be pushed.

We have now all met as a group

with senior staff to look at how we

can work together in our different

roles for the benefit of the district.

The first weeks of any new role are

a steep learning curve balanced with

the excitement of what lays ahead.

As a council, we will continue to

deliver the standard services our

communities expects, but with a few

new priorities in our sights.

We want to make interactions

with council easy. We want to lift

our performance on gravel road

maintenance. We want to see more

public art. We want to see some new

facilities built where they are needed

and we want to make sure we have

good conversations with communities

so we all understand the direction

and decisions being made.

In the coming years, there will be

ribbon cutting and smiling photos,

but behind this ceremony, you have

elected a council who care about our

district, who love our people and

who are committed to making the

best long-term decisions we can.

If you would like to meet up and

discuss issues close to your heart,

please give me a call.​

This week’s letters

concern the granting

of resource consent,

against the wishes of

some nearby residents,

to Paul’s Excavation

Services for a contractors’

yard on Leadleys Rd

after the company had

operated the yard for

several years without

consent

Graham McMann, of

Prebbleton – The Selwyn

district is a green and pleasant

land with areas of great beauty.

We are at present going

through a vast build of new

housing which is needed to

supply homes to our growing

population.

To keep the area green we

cannot allow commercial

outfits to set up as and when

they want.

Surely the council must

act on this if our rural areas

are not to be turned into a

commercial haven.

I feel let down by a council

that is not prepared to fight the

commercial sector to keep our

green and pleasant land just

that.

David Ward, district

council chief executive – The

resource application for this

activity has been assessed and

granted by an independent

commissioner.

UNWELCOME PRESENCE: Residents of Leadleys Rd,

near Prebbleton, are unhappy about the presence of this

Part of the pleasure for me putting this show together has

been the enjoyments of seeing each piece take on its own

story.

The tales we are told when we are young help to shape our

lives making us who we are.

Legends and stories that extend into the roots of civilisation

add to our values and traditions.

Early mankind left rock drawings depicting how they lived

and what they saw in their everyday lives, they would have

made music and communicated with each other as we do

today with story and song. We have become a bit more

sophisticated since the advent of electronic communication.

The ancient Egyptians used hieroglyphics to record their

beginnings and have left a wealth of information about them.

Some cultures have no written language, so song is the way

in which they remember their stories and pass on their past

to the next generation.

I present in this show, a cacophony of untold stories and

songs yet still to be sung.”

Plea for

councillors

to work

for community

•From page 1

Mr Broughton said he believed

district councillors had

generally been good at keeping

a district-wide focus but that

didn’t always mean that their

view on a local issue would be

the same as those elected from

elsewhere in Selwyn.

“This can be due to the local

information and experience

that a local councillor will have

been exposed to over a period of

time,” Mr Broughton said.

He wasn’t convinced that the

current ward system and First

Past the Post voting model was

the best for Selwyn, although it

was the simplest to understand.

Election at large using the Single

Transferable Vote system would

allow voters to have a say in

electing all 11 district councillors

rather than the current

system where they could only

vote for between two and four

depending on which ward they

lived in.

Mr Pearcy said that when

he was a district councillor he

always carried a copy of the

declaration with him when he

went to parochial community

committee meetings so he could

remind people of his obligations

when necessary.

Park ‘mess’ frustrating

• By Tom Doudney

RESIDENTS OF Rolleston’s

Levi Park subdivision have

been frustrated by a lack of

maintenance of parks and street

corners.

Developer Gillman Wheelans

handed over responsibility for

maintaining public areas to the

district council in March but

residents told the Selwyn Times

that in many parts of the subdivision,

nothing had been done

in that time.

The residents, who declined to

be named, said they had called

UNTIDY: Residents

Park subdivision

maintenance of

the district council several times

to point out the lack of maintenance.

“The council is looking after

the park closest to the main

road in Levi Park but all the

other grassed areas around that

subdivision are just a mess, the

weeds are actually bigger than

the shrubs,” one resident said.

As well as making the area

look untidy, they were concerned

that long grass could

hide hazards.

At one park on the corner of

Blue Jean Ave and Strauss Drive,

which had a children’s playground,

the grass was at least

50cm high and one of the residents

had banned her children

from playing there after finding

broken glass amongst the grass.

District council parks and

reserves contracts manager

Cameron Warr said contractors

had now begun work on tidying

the area up.

“The work has started at

Strauss Drive and working up

through to Navy Loop,” Mr

Warr said.

“Once this has been completed

the area will be on a regular

maintenance contract.”

In Brief

ELECTION RETURNS

Three out of Selwyn’s four wards

recorded higher voter turnout in

recent local government elections

than at the previous election in

2013. Voter turnout improved

from 36.84 per cent to 39.65 per

cent in Selwyn Central, from

47.17 per cent to 49.97 per cent

in Ellesmere and from 41.23 per

cent to 42.10 per cent in Springs.

Malvern’s turnout fell from 56.67

per cent to 55.53 per cent, but

it still had the highest overall

turnout.

WOMEN’S INSTITUTES

The Canterbury East Federation

of Women’s Institutes has raised

$1500 for the Canterbury Charity

Hospital by providing catering

at two recent dinners. A third

fundraising dinner will be held

on November 8.

PLAYGROUND IDEAS

Plans for a playground at

Rolleston’s Foster Park,

opposite Selwyn Aquatic

Centre, are expected to be

finalised in the next few months.

More than 80 local children were

surveyed to see what attractions

were most important to them.

Adults also contributed. The

most popular choices included a

Dragon set to rock at Lincoln concert

With a catalogue of hits including Kiwi anthems

April Sun in Cuba, Rain and Are You Old Enough?

Dragon have well and truly earned their place as

New Zealand rock royalty. Tom Doudney caught up

with lead singer Mark Williams in the lead up to their

appearance at the Live in Lincoln Selwyn Sounds

concert in March

FLYING IN and out of

Christchurch over the years,

Mark Williams has often

wondered about the land between

the city and Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere as he gazed down from

his seat in the aircraft.

But the Dragon singer admitted

he had to Google Lincoln

when the band were asked to

co-headline the Selwyn Sounds

concert with Mi-Sex and a host

of other well-known New Zealand

artists in March.

Now he knew where it was,

Williams, who joined the reformed

band in 2005, said he was

looking forward to exploring the

area – and to playing with the

rest of the show’s line up, most

of who were friends or artists he

had performed with before.

That line-up includes Sharon

O’Neill, Annie Crummer, Margaret

Urlich, Debbie Harwood,

the Jordan Luck Band and former

Opshop frontman Jason Kerrison,

as well as other local bands.

“I think there is a hell of a lot

of nostalgia going to be going on

here and I’m always up for that,”

Williams said.

Although the band has been

releasing new material over the

last 11 years, he indicated people

could expect plenty of old favourites

when they hit the stage.

“We don’t tend to add too

much new stuff because we know

that given the longevity of the

band people do want to hear

the songs that were part of their

growing up period,” he said.

He said hits like April Sun in

Cuba and Rain remained popular

because they were songs that

every generation could relate to.

“I think it’s the same thing that

caught everyone’s attention at the

time they came out – they are evergreens,

they are kind of standard

and an integral part of Australian

and New Zealand culture.”

In spite of having played the

songs hundreds of times over the

years, Williams said he never felt

like he was going through the

motions when performing them

READY TO ROCK: Singer Mark Williams, bottom, and his band

Dragon are among a stellar line-up of New Zealand acts set to

play Lincoln in March.

and the crowd’s positive reaction

was a big part of that.

“It’s all about the music, really,

and that mass communication

and that’s the thing that has been

driving me since I was five-yearsold,”

he said.

“If we’re working hard I kind

of expect [the crowd] to work

hard as well back at me.”

Williams said that the band

was likely to turn its attention

to working on some new music

soon after Selwyn Sounds.

With the band members,

which also include Todd Hunter,

Bruce Reid and Pete Drummond,

scattered around New South

Wales, Australia, and with several

hours driving time between

them, they made full use of

modern technology when writing

new music – often emailing

audio recordings back and forth

for each to add their own touch.

“We are way overdue for the

next lot of songs and I think this

one is going to be an album,”

Williams said.

Williams had a successful solo

career before Dragon, with hits

including Yesterday Was Just The

Beginning of My Life and Show

No Mercy, and he didn’t rule out

performing a song or two from

those years at Selwyn Sounds

either.

Asked whether there was a

chance he might pop down to

play at Lincoln’s Famous Grouse

Hotel after the gig he laughed

and said “you never know.”

“If there is something interesting

happening or someone from

the town that we are in says ‘go

down and check out this band’

or whatever you will often find

me and the drummer will be

there – not so much Todd or

Bruce,” he said.

“With a bit of cajoling, if somebody

asks us I am sure we would

more than oblige.”

Selwyn Sounds will be held

on March 4, from 11.30am-

8.30pm. Tickets can be

purchased via Ticketek and

buyers will be able to prepurchase

a return bus ride

between pick-up points in

Help with growing flowers for needy

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A RAISED flower bed has been

built for a woman dedicated to

making life for the unwell a little

brighter.

Janine Thomson, of Darfield,

heads around different plant

growers and gardens, picking

up flowers to gift to sick patients

around the city.

When Bunnings Warehouse

Riccarton was asked for a donation

of plants, the team led by

activity organiser Amy Maclennan,

rallied together to build

two raised garden beds recently.

This was so Ms Thomson

could grow her own flowers to

build posies for the community.

“At the moment we are using

donated flowers which is amazing

and I am very grateful for

those flowers. But we also like to

incorporate our own flowers we

grow ourselves,” she said.

The Flower Garden New Zealand

charity delivers about 35

posies once a week to places including

Christchurch Hospital,

Christchurch Women’s Hospital

and Ronald McDonald House

South Island.

Her passion for helping others

through flowers was ignited after

she had a car accident when

she was 17.

“It did actually stick to me

just how bad I felt in hospital

and I remember thinking this is

horrible being sick . . . my best

friend came in with an armful

or orchids and it just blew me

away,” she said.

Ms Thomson said if she has

any flowers left over she will give

them to the staff of hospitals or

retirement homes.

“The nurses really cheered

me up, that is why I like to give

back to the nurses. It completely

changed my whole visit. It

perked me up,” she said.

Other companies to have donated

plants to the charity garden

includes Southern Woods

Nursery, South Pacific Roses

and Pearsons Coal and Garden

Supplies.

“I had to put my thinking cap

on . . . the worse they can say is

no and quite a few of them said

yes,” she said.

The charity is looking for

funding to support the running

of the organisation.

Success for

bodybuilding

couple

•From page 1

Before this year he had also had

four years off competing – returning

to the fold while helping his

wife train.

Mr Hibbs credited the couple’s

healthy lifestyle for allowing them

to remain competitive at the top

level into their 40s.

“We are pretty much organic

sort of eaters, we don’t use sports

supplements, so it’s a lifestyle

thing I suppose,” he said.

Mrs Hibbs said motivation and

self-discipline was also key to

their success.

Mr Hibbs said his wife’s

achievement was “super impressive”

after so long out of competition.

The couple first met 18

years ago while they were

working at the same gym and

Mrs Hibbs was helping out

behind the scenes at a bodybuilding

competition Mr Hibbs was

competing in.

Mr Hibbs runs a health and

wellness business called Balanced

Health Ltd and Mrs Hibbs is a

manager with the Christchurch

City Council’s sport and recreation

unit.

Four-day walk brings

water quality of Selwyn River into spotlight

LINCOLN’S FINEST SUBDIVISION

Live in Lincoln

nine bands. one day. www.selwynsounds.co.nz

• By Tom Doudney

A FOUR-DAY walk along the

Selwyn/Waikirikiri River which

took place last month to raise

awareness of water quality issues

has been turned into a short

documentary.

And that documentary may

become part of a longer film

documenting a series of similar

walks planned for other Canterbury

rivers next year.

Gaylene Barnes’ 15min film is

currently part of the Waterlife

exhibition at Lincoln’s Down by

the Liffey Gallery. The exhibition

features work by artists and

scientists, several of who were

involved in the Walk For Water,

on the theme of water quality.

Ms Barnes said she had been

invited to film the walk by its

organisers.

“When I went to the

Selwyn River and filmed it, I was

shocked,” she said.

“I had been up to the top of the

Selwyn River two or three years

ago, had a nice picnic there, wandered

in the water – I wouldn’t

do that today, it’s a mess.”

Ms Barnes and fellow film

LONG HAUL: Participants in the Walk For Water traversing the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River to raise

awareness of water quality issues last month. ​

maker Kathleen Gallagher

are planning to film a hikoi in

March and April, jointly organised

by a number of community

groups, which will involve people

walking along the course of

several Canterbury rivers including

the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River

again.

The other rivers will include

the Heathcote and the Avon

rivers in Christchurch; the

Orari, Opihi and Waitaki rivers

in South Canterbury and the

Waimakariri and Hurunui rivers

in North Canterbury.

Ms Barnes and Ms Gallagher

are looking for funding to make

a film of the hikoi.

Ms Barnes’ family farm is in

the Rakaia area and she said water

issues were close to her heart.

“It’s something I’m extremely

concerned about. I take a very

close interest in what’s going

on with the expanding dairy

farming on the plains and every

time I travel up there, there has

been more irrigators go up, more

hedges come down, more water

pipes trawling across the plains,”

she said.

“Although I am from a farming

background and my family

are farmers and I understand

how important water is for

growing crops, I do see that the

balance is actually being tipped a

little bit and it’s not in favour of

the environment.”

Cricket coach bowled over

Ellesmere College teacher and cricket coach

Chris O’Connell writes about his participation

in a programme helping develop cricket

coaching in Sri Lanka

I HAVE just returned from a

two-week experience in Sri

Lanka with the Cricket Live

Foundation, delivering two

coaching education programmes

for Sri Lankan local cricket

coaches.

I was part of a team of three

coaches from Christchurch,

headed by director Alex Reece

who is the founder of Cricket

Live, and including Sam Noster,

a club player formerly from the

Burnside West Cricket Club.

We had two different tasks on

this trip in two very different

areas of Sri Lanka.

The first one was to deliver an

intermediate coaching course

to a group of 12 coaches in a

very remote part of Sri Lanka

called Siyambalanduwa. The

second task was in Moratuwa,

Colombo, and it was to deliver

an advanced course to facilitate a

group of competent coaches and

teach them how to teach and run

courses for beginner coaches.

The courses were different

but exceptionally rewarding.

We were impressed by the

attitudes of all the coaches, their

willingness to learn and their

“hunger” to experience some of

the New Zealand approaches to

cricket coaching and teaching in

general.

Most importantly, the Cricket

Live Foundation is based upon

giving underprivileged youth in

Sri Lanka a chance in life.

It is central to the existence of

Cricket Live and the emphasis

is on the teaching of life skills

alongside the teaching of cricket.

The life skills taught in the

programme, which are known

as the five Cs (competencies),

are: team work, punctuality and

time management, respect, selfdiscipline

and nutrition.

One totally moving experience

I had was the opportunity to

go into the children’s homes in

the village that they are from.

These families pretty much have

nothing compared to us on a

day-to-day basis. Parents often

don’t have regular employment,

they will take any job that they

MAKING A DIFFERENCE: Chris O’Connell spent two weeks in Sri Lanka working with local cricket

coaches and underprivileged young players.

can do for money on any week

day. Examples of the type of

work that is sometimes available

for families are labouring,

fishing, helping neighbours out

and performing carpentry tasks.

The reality being, if there is no

work on a particular day, then

they will not have money for

food for the next day.

The children that I witnessed

who are part of the Cricket Live

programme were all simply

amazing. The pride and respect

demonstrated by them was

delightful and inspiring. An

example of this was the pride in

wearing their grey caps, white

cricket shirt and white trousers,

which are provided as part of the

programme.

Somehow through their eyes

and faces, I could see how the

programme had brightened up

their lives and their respect for

the sport and the programme

was obvious and immense.

by experience in Sri Lanka

LIFE SKILLS: Chris O’Connell says the Cricket Live programme

has given disadvantaged Sri Lankan youth a chance, not just on

the cricket field but beyond it.

Without a doubt, I experienced

a major culture shock over there.

Namely, the tuk tuk; daily travel

through the city via the chaotic

Galle Rd in Colombo; temperatures

of up to 40deg C; locals

serving up curries for nearly

every meal and eating their curries

with their right hands; dogs

everywhere you look; rubbish

randomly dumped in different

locations; small crowded shops;

and being applauded by locals in

some areas as we were the only

foreigners that some of them had

ever seen.

As a school teacher, I was interested

in the schools over there.

What did I learn from what I

witnessed? The schools I visited

as part of the programme varied

in facilities and wealth. Some

classroom environments could

be described by us as ‘shocking.’

Classrooms had concrete floors,

no lighting, dust everywhere,

overcrowding and few teaching

and learning resources.

There wasn’t a computer in

sight that I could see. Toilets

were unhygienic, playing field

conditions were uneven, sandbased

with minimal grass.

Some schools had rubbish

dumps behind the classroom

blocks and I witnessed a ‘burnoff

’ on school grounds depositing

smoke all around the environment

for everyone to inhale.

I had a conversation (via the

Google Translate app) with an

experienced teacher over there

and he described his salary as

480,000 Sri Lankan rupees a

year, which equates to $4490

New Zealand dollars per year. I

thought, how many of us would

get into the profession for that

type of remuneration?

The MJF foundation, named

after Merrill J Fernando, the

owner of Dilmah Tea, is a financial

backer of the programme.

They have been proactive in

obtaining classroom and storage

space, net facilities, matting and

wickets, although this is a work

in progress at some schools,

which are getting new facilities

built and working through all the

local red tape.

The most memorable thing

I saw was a school cow. It was

chomping away at the little grass

it could find. A couple of schools

also had wrecked cars on-site,

apparently for educational reasons.

The schools we went into

started at 7.30am and finished

at 1.30pm. There was a prayer

at the end of the day, with the

whole school standing still and

flags coming down before the

dismissal of the children for the

day. School uniforms were fully

white and kids carried plastic

bags with their curry and rice

lunch for the day.

Budgets seemed non-existent

for classroom resources and

facilities. Most children carried

a single exercise book and a pen

which was used for all subjects.

There were hardly any classrooms

with fans and certainly no

air conditioning or floor covering

and all classroom floors were

concrete.

It made me thankful of what

we have got in New Zealand

schools. I will never complain

again.

I can honestly say that my

life has been enriched by this

unique and amazing experience

of a two-week stint in Sri Lanka.

The visit has opened my eyes

up to another culture that I

can honestly report is a proud,

hardworking, and respectful

nation. I have witnessed how

the medium of sport can be

used to lift the lives of the

underprivileged and teach

them life skills and values with

indisputable success.

I was fascinated and almost in

disbelief as to how a young kiwi,

Alex Reece, had managed to get

the Cricket Live programme set

up from ground zero. Amazingly,

after three years of existence, it is

a programme that now features

close to 500 children. Alex had

an initial vision and he made

it happen – that in itself is a

remarkable achievement.

Disadvantaged children have

been given a life opportunity

and, from this, they will grow

after experiencing the three-year

programme and this creates a

good feeling inside and gives me

a desire to keep being involved in

some capacity.

I would like to thank my

employers, Ellesmere College

BOT, for allowing me to take

two weeks leave of absence from

my teaching position; Leeston

Lions; Freemasons of Leeston,

Alex Reece and the Cricket Live

Foundation for supporting me

and believing in me.

I am so fortunate to have

had an amazing life experience

and personal advancement

experience – but the bottom line

is we don’t know how lucky we

are here in New Zealand.

Nurse’s sojourn inspired by faith

NINE YEARS ago a friend

passed Rolleston nurse Sharon

Valentine a newspaper clipping,

saying: “I thought of you when I

read this.”

The article planted the idea of

volunteering with Mercy Ships

– a charity which brings free

life-saving surgeries to parts of

the world where medical care is

limited, via hospital ship.

The idea stuck in the back of

her mind and became a reality

this year, when she quit her longstanding

position with Rolleston

Central Health to volunteer on

board the Africa Mercy, while it

was docked in Cotonou, in the

West African country of Benin.

Ms Valentine returned from

her seven-week stint last week.

She said she had been excited

to finally be able to volunteer

after previously putting her

ambitions on hold due to family

illness and work commitments.

Inspired by her faith, she was

determined to use her nursing

skills to provide much needed

healthcare for people in Africa

who struggle in multi-dimensional

poverty.

“I will never think of Africa in

the same light again,” Ms Valentine

said.

“Before it was just a colourful

continent on the world map. Benin

and my experience here will

be with me forever.”

In her work as an admissions

nurse for the Africa Mercy, Ms

Valentine made sure pre-selected

patients began their treatment

with all i’s dotted and t’s crossed.

Prior to a patient receiving

free surgery, essential medical

history is noted. Blood is taken

and analysed on board, specific

tests are done for each condition,

and further examination by the

surgeon is conducted.

“In admissions we ask heaps of

questions in order to obtain an

accurate history of the patient,”

MATTER OF FAITH: Rolleston’s Sharon Valentine on board

the world’s largest civilian hospital ship, the Africa Mercy,

seen above docked in Benin.

Ms Valentine said.

“I quite like that sort of thing.

Making sure everything is

squared away.”

Ms Valentine said she felt

deep compassion as she saw the

extreme results of generations

with limited access to even basic

healthcare.

“We just don’t have these issues

at home – if they arise, they are

dealt with pronto,” she said.

“I have become so aware and

grateful for healthcare in my

country.”

Mercy Ships typically spends

10 months each year in an

African port. The patients sometimes

walk for days hoping for

help that would not otherwise

be available to them or their

families.

“Often, people are apprehensive

– they may have never been

in hospital before,” Ms Valentine

said.

150th celebrations a great

success.

While the weather was out of

the control of the capable people

involved, with preparations

carried out in rainy conditions,

a warm sunny weekend ensued,

adding the final touch to a great

Rolleston Show, CultureFest and

Grand Parade, delighting all

who attended.

This event has confirmed

Rolleston’s identity as a place of

agriculture, transport hub, and

entrepreneurial spirit, supported

by a military base and diverse

multi-cultural community.

Above all, Rolleston was and

still identifies itself as a railway

town and a strong feeling is

emerging that its history and

that of the wider district, should

be captured and preserved.

A huge and humble thank you

is expressed from the committee

chairman to the people of

Rolleston, for supporting this

significant Rolleston birthday.

The community’s generosity

has been overwhelming in time,

money, goods and discounts.

150TH TEATOWELS STILL AVAILABLE!

Sunday’s parade was led by a highland pipe band. Military history

was on display over the weekend.

St John Youth and Scouts marched in the parade

Mainline Steam’s JA1240 & KA942 were at Rolleston for the weekend.

Ring events included working traction engines.

Emma Fleming enjoys the

bouncy castle.

Penny-farthing and vintage bikes came to Rolleston.

Air fences for Moore Park

• By Gordon Findlater

MOORE PARK Speedway has

installed air fences on both of

the race tracks corners in a bid

to improve safety of riders and

spectators.

The motor-cycle speedway

which is situated opposite West

Melton Aerodrome on Weedons

Ross Rd is just the second speedway

in the country to introduce

the inflatable air barriers after

Oreti Park Speedway in Southland

installed barriers in 2012.

The barriers have already saved

a life. Rider Hayden Sims was

involved a horrific crash at Oreti

Park in 2014 and broke the top of

the left humerus bone in his arm,

pushing it up past the ball joint.

The outcome would have been far

worse though, had it not been for

the air fence.

Safety comes with a price. The

200m of the air barriers made

from polyvinyl chloride at Moore

Park have come at a cost of

$80,000. The club are still raising

funds to pay off the barriers.

The club season began on October

16 with the Battle of the Twins

sidecar event which was won by

Fraser Gillespie and Nigel Cuckow.

Moore Park will host the

Canterbury Solo Champs on

November 6.

SOFT IMPACT: The air fence at Moore Park could be the difference between life

and death for riders. ​

Meet your Mayor – Sam Broughton

What do you like about the area you represent?

I love Selwyn. The people here are cool. We know one

another, we welcome new comers, we understand the land

and weather, we care for our neighbours, we create cool

spaces to meet, we celebrate together and we comfort

one another. We have been doing this for generations and I

trust for generations to come. One of the other great things

is we are close to rivers, mountains, sea, open spaces, to

Christchurch, and to people.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

In my spare time I enjoy relaxing with my wife Liz, our dog

Lev and friends. I enjoy watching or playing sports, although I

should do more playing. I particularly enjoy cricket, football and

lawn bowls. I play the guitar, ride my motorbike and I enjoy 4WD

trips with friends. I don’t particularly like hokey pokey ice cream.

How would you describe yourself?

I would describe myself as a man who likes to help others,

laugh together, and provide a way to get things done. I have

a keen sense for justice and understanding others points of

view. I love to see peace in the world. Peace within ourselves,

between each other, peace with the environment and peace

with our Creator.

Check fires are fully extinguished

An open fire season is currently in place in Selwyn’s rural plains area. While outdoor fires may be lit

there are a number of fire safety guidelines that must be met. Before you light a fire please visit

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

Rainfall has been low over winter, and soil moisture levels are lower than normal in our district. Nor’

west winds, along with drying vegetation can make also make it easy for old fires to reignite or for fires

which are burning to spread. Please check carefully that any previously lit fires are out. Look underneath

the fire embers to see if it is fully out and douse thoroughly with water if needed. No burning is allowed

at night or when moderate or strong winds are occurring or forecast so please check the weather

forecast carefully. Fires also need an adequate fire break and must be constantly supervised.

Under ECAN air rules, to prevent smoke pollution only dry vegetation cut at least six weeks prior may

be burned. In hill and high country areas a permit is required for outdoor fires. Outdoor fires are not

allowed in residential areas under ECAN rules, except for barbeques.

SELWYN TIMES

Pie maker leaves his legacy to family

A pioneer in pie

making died early

this month. Bridget

Rutherford reports

FROM RAISING four children

to making half a tonne of pastry

a day – Bert Hillyer was a busy

man.

The co-founder of Hillyers of

Lincoln passed away earlier this

month, aged 87.

Mr Hillyer’s son Grant said his

father was always cheerful and

most happy when he was with

his family and friends.

Mr Hillyer and his wife, Irene,

started Hillyers of Lincoln in

1967 after Irene had been baking

for the local bowling and tennis

clubs.

Her food became so popular,

the council told her she needed

to get commercial premises to

continue doing it. So that is exactly

what the Hillyers did.

Their good friend Jim Burke

offered his building at 9 Robert

St in Lincoln to them, which had

previously housed a butchery.

“Hillyers would have never

existed without the help of the

Burke family,” Grant Hillyer

said.

PIONEER: The late Bert Hillyer set up Hillyers Bakery with his wife Irene

about 50 years ago.

Mr Hillyer had been working

as an engineer at Springston

Agriculture Engineering and

wanted a change.

“Even the first oven they had

was rescued from being thrown

out from the dump.”

Mr Hillyer was raised in mid-

Canterbury and went into an

orphanage after his mother died

giving birth to his younger sister.

At the age of 12, he left school

to work on farms before he became

an engineer.

Although his background was

not in baking, he still had input

into the recipes and was tasked

with making half a tonne of

pastry a day.

“They would never work less

than 80 hours a week. It was a

really hard life, but one that was

very rewarding for them,” Grant

Hillyer said.

The pie has always been the

bakery’s forte and it began

experimenting with different

flavours and combinations.

Grant Hillyer said it was at

a time when there were only

mince, bacon and egg and steak

pies to choose from.

EARLY DAYS: Some

of the original staff

and family outside

Hillyers Bakery in

Lincoln.

He said the steak and mushroom

was the first gourmet

flavour they introduced and, by

1980, they brought in the now

popular steak and cheese.

“And for three years, nobody

would buy them, nobody liked

them.”

The steak and oyster pie was

introduced shortly after, which

generously had three Bluff oysters

in it.

“My mother only did things

over the top. She didn’t like to

skimp.”

They were being sold for $3.50

at the time, which was “very

expensive” compared to the

other pies. However, they were

popular, Grant Hillyer said.

“The students came down with

their pocket money on Thursdays

and Fridays and would buy

two of them.”

Further down the track, the

chicken, cranberry and brie pie

was put on the menu, which was

inspired by a pizza flavour at

Winnie Bagoes after it had just

opened in the 90s.

Hillyers was a real family

business – with Grant and his

wife Nardia taking it over and

daughter Wendy having an input

into recipes – until it was sold in

1995 but it still retains the same

name today.

“The strength of our business

was the family,” Grant Hillyer

said.

However, when family

members moved away, it felt like

the right time to sell, he said.

Mrs Hillyer passed away 16 years

ago, but some of her recipes are

still being used at Hillyers now.

Grant Hillyer said the family

still did a lot of baking and

cooking – sister Wendy, who has

had a lot of input into Hillyers

and its recipes, is married

to award-winning chef Rex

Morgan.

RECOGNISED: The Warehouse’s distribution centre in Rolleston has won an

international award. ​

Award for The Warehouse’s

new distribution centre

• By Bridget Rutherford

GARDEN City Helicopters

has regained its contract

to run the air ambulance

service for Canterbury and

the West Coast.

The Canterbury District

Health Board called for applicants

for the contract at

the end of last year.

Garden City Helicopters

has been the provider for

the past 20 years.

Its new contract for

transferring acutely ill

patients between hospitals

and other South Island

locations, as well as the

Chatham Islands, began on

October 1.

It will expire in September

2018.

It comes as the Ministry

THE Warehouse’s new

South Island distribution

centre in Rolleston’s Izone

business park has won

an international award,

beating entries from

Europe, the Middle East

and Asia.

A $13 million extension,

currently under construction,

to the distribution

centre was named ‘best

industrial project’ category

at the Tekla Global BIM

(building information

modelling) Awards.

The award was presented

to The Holmes Consulting

team which managed the

engineering work on the

extension.

Before work began, the

distribution centre was

already the South Island’s

largest single level building,

at 34,000 sq m or the

size of six rugby fields.

The extension, which

will be completed in February,

will add a further

15,000 sq m of storage and

distribution space, 2000

sq m of extra container

canopies, new racking and

conveyor systems, and extra

yard and parking areas.

Holmes Consulting

business manager Jeff Matthews

(left) said the team

relished the opportunity

to deliver on a challenging

project.

“Being recognised internationally

is great, we were

up against some equally

complex projects,” Mr

Matthews said.

The Holmes Consulting

team drew the original

centre in two dimensions

and then made a three

dimensional model of the

new part of the facility, to

integrate the old and new

sections as smoothly as

possible.

The modelling will also

provide information for

maintenance and potential

future extensions.

Air ambulance contract decision

of Health and ACC announced

they are undertaking

a major “rethink”

about air ambulance services

and how they operate.

The National Ambulance

Sector Office is looking at

developing a new model,

which will come into effect

after the 12 current

provider contracts expire

in 2018.

SELWYN TIMES

Looking the part on race day

Annabelle

Dick looks

at race day

trends

AS THE New Zealand Cup and

Show Week approaches, now is

a good time to start planning

that race day outfit. This is

Canterbury’s biggest fashion

event on the calendar so ladies

start organising your look to get

ahead of the queues.

Here’s some things to

consider when planning

this year’s cup day look

What to wear:

Loose-fitting, slinky spaghettistrap

dresses look good on almost

any one. While simple, they

scream chic. These dresses will

be a common sight on the field

this year but how you choose

to accessorise it will make all

the difference. Slip dresses are a

good base so you can go all out

and be creative in other ways.

Pair with some lace-up heels and

statement earrings for a sleek

look.

Full-length jumpsuits have

made a hard and fast comeback

and will undoubtedly be a strong

contender for the outfit of choice.

Opt for a jumpsuit in on-trend

HEADWEAR: Make sure you’re flaunting a headpiece at New Zealand Cup & Show Week like

these fascinators made by Mary Outram.

hues, such as fiesta red or buttercup

yellow, to really stand out.

This year you can’t go wrong

with hues of grey-blue, pastel

pink, nude tones and bright red.

Accessories:

Personally, I like to keep

my accessories very minimal.

I’m not big on colour when it

comes to accessorising because

the chances of me wearing

something brightly-coloured

again is pretty slim. Instead, I

keep it low-key with metallics,

nude tones and pastels. If you’re

wearing florals, choose a subtle

colour from your dress for your

accessories. More subtle colours

will bring your outfit together

so think about muted tones like

beige, grey, white or metallic.

If you are wearing a block colour,

you can create contrast with

your shoes, bag and hat. Mustard

yellow can look fab with white

accessories and, if you’re scared

of colour, a bright polish on your

toes can really finish an outfit

nicely.

A clutch is essential – you will

need somewhere to put your

lippy if your day involves hours

of race-watching and drinking

bubbles. And you’ll also need

somewhere to put all those winning

tickets.

Shoes:

Your bag and shoes don’t have

to match, just think about how

they look in a tone sense and

dress accordingly. This year I’ve

been really big on block heels.

They look slick and they’re oh-so

comfy, which makes them a

perfect cup day pick. Each year

at the races, I see women struggle

in sky-high stilettos and I feel

second-hand embarrassment as

I watch them on their tip-tops

to avoid digging their heels into

the muddy grass. Don’t be her

this year. Alongside block heels,

mules look good with almost

anything and they are just as

comfortable. But if you’re a bit

sceptical about ditching the

pumps, opt for lace-up heels.

They’re a great statement if your

dress is more nondescript and

needs a pick-me-up.

Headwear:

The fascinator has become

one of the hottest items worn

by women to the races – mainly

because it’s a smaller component

of an outfit and it usually comes

with a smaller price tag. Fascinators

allow creativity and can add

a lot of volume to a look. Whether

you’re a first time attendee or

a devoted race-goer, definitely

make sure you’re rocking a head

piece this year. Opt for a statement

head piece like those seen

on, and made by, Christchurch

fashion queen Mary Outram.

buy one of her lush, hand-made

crowns and fascinators.

Potatoes!

LET’S GET

GardEninG

Mounding potatoes is an important part of the whole growing

process. It helps to cover and protect the tubers from damage, and

from insects. If they turn green they become inedible and go to

waste, and you don’t want the insects to get to them before you do!

Once the plant has grown to about 10-20cm, you will need

to mound up around the base of the plant again, adding that

protective layer. Use some Organic Compost, or some Garden Soil Mix to do this. Simply push

up the soil around the base of the plants into mounds (mound to about half the height of

the plant). You will need to continue to do this as the plant grows, until they are ready to be

harvested. It is also a good idea to add some of our Potato Fertiliser and then water in well

afterwards. This is particularly important if you didn’t fertilise at planting time. When watering,

try to avoid watering the foliage, instead water between the mounds. Remove any weeds as

they appear.

Get your veges growing for summer eating

A FAVOURITE time of year

for many gardeners, the end of

October is the traditional period

for planting out a full range of

summer vegetables (and flowers)

into a prepared garden, whether

it’s in the ground or raised beds.

But don’t panic if you haven’t

prepared your soil for planting

yet. Mix in plenty of compost into

your existing soil now to a depth

of 1-1.5 spade depth before you

plant out.

Delicious summer veggies to

plant out are beans, beetroot,

carrots, celery, corn, cucumber,

lettuce, onions, peas, pumpkin,

radish, potatoes, spinach, tomatoes

and zucchini.

For plants that climb or need

support like peas, beans or tomatoes,

always put in your support

structure before you plant your

seedling so as not to disturb the

roots later on.

A good tip is to make sure you

water regularly and to a plant’s

requirements, for example, more

water for leafy crops such as lettuce

or fruiting varieties such as

tomato and strawberries. During

the early summer growing

months (through to early December)

side dress with fertiliser at

3-4 weekly intervals. Ensure you

water it in well.

If you have limited space but

still want to grow your own, then

SUPPLY: Raised beds are useful for growing summer veges get the seedlings in the ground now.

start a container garden instead.

You can grow many vegetables

successfully in pots or containers,

especially with the different

types of dwarf or mini-varieties

now available. Growing in pots

is also a great way to get children

involved in gardening. There are a

couple of things you need to do to

ensure a bumper crop.

Choosing the right sized container

is important; people tend to

select smaller pots, but make sure

you choose a decent size. What

you plant your veges in is crucial,

so use good quality potting or

container mixes as they contain

well balanced, slow release nutrients

and have moisture retaining

qualities.

It’s a good idea to change the

soil every time you want to grow

a new crop, as nutrients and

water holding capabilities can get

depleted. Position your pot or

container in a warm sunny, north

facing position, away from strong

winds.

Do small succession plantings

of fast growing summer vegetables

so you do not have them all

cropping at once.

Church could demolish Cathedral

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE ANGLICAN Diocese

could demolish all or part of

the Christ Church Cathedral

without public consultation

– if it has a plan to rebuild or

restore it.

As part of the Christchurch

Replacement District Plan, an

independent hearings panel

made rules the diocese would

have to follow when a decision

on the Cathedral’s future was

made.

It decided if the diocese

applied for resource consent

to fully or partially demolish

the Cathedral, it would be a

controlled activity – under the

proviso the demolition was for

the purpose of restoration or a

rebuild and a consent application

was made for that.

Controlled activities do not

require public or limited notification.

That means no one

could have their say on it.

However, in spite of the

district plan rules, the city

council has the power to

publicly notify an application

if it was under “exceptional”

circumstances.

“They need to be considered

in the context of a given consent

application,” city council

head of planning and strategic

the Anglican Diocese would need to take once Christ

transport Richard Osborne

said.

The diocese also holds a section

38 notice, issued under

CERA, allowing the removal

of “hazards” without gaining

consent.

The hearings panel decided

if the section 38 notice was

used, it was up to the High

Court to decide the scope of

the hazards – whether it be

demolishing part of the building

or all of it.

The panel decided if the

section 38 notice was not used

and, if there were no plans

to rebuild the Cathedral, the

demolition would be classed

as a restricted discretionary

activity, which would require

some sort of notification.

The Anglican Diocese wants

to demolish the Cathedral and

build a new one for cheaper

than it would cost to repair,

while heritage advocates want

it restored.

It would cost $105 million to

repair, and between $63-$66

million to rebuild a cathedral

of the same size and scale.

A working party will make

a recommendation on the Cathedral’s

future next month.

Great

Christchurch

Buildings Trust

co-chairman

Jim Anderton

(right) said

the trust was

happy with the

hearings panel

decision because it meant

resource consent was needed.

He said it would be “impossible”

to get a resource consent

to demolish the Cathedral

without a plan to rebuild it,

because it was a category one

heritage building.

The Anglican Diocese did

not respond to The Star.

Racing on grass

If wanting to compete in a motor sport

yet shy about incurring the expense you

might try the growing sport of grass

karting.

“Grass karting is for people who want a

budget motor racing sport,” explains Greg

Hornsby, Secretary and Media Liaison of

the Christchurch Grass Kart Club.

The club has been signing up five to

seven new members each month, varying

in age from five to seventy five.

“Grass karting is a sport where family

members get involved, having a turn at

racing,” adds Greg.

An example is top New Zealand rally

driver Hayden Paddon, who is currently

racing in the World Rally Championship

in Europe. He began grass karting when

he was six years old.

Currently, there are six active clubs

around New Zealand. Most are in the

South Island, in Ashburton, Timaru,

Kaikoura and Nelson. A new club has

also recently been started in Gisborne.

Christchurch is the largest club with over

two hundred members.

Grass Karts are raced year round and

other than the club championships, racing

is purely social. While members take

races seriously, endeavouring to beat one

another, it is all in good fun making the

meets social family days where different

combinations, such as mothers and sons

or fathers and daughters race against each

other.

The traditional grass kart which was a

home built kart with a lawnmower engine

has evolved and ninety nine percent are

now ex track racing carts with motorcycle

engines costing on average between

$2,000 and $4,000.

Most have a Lifan motor, which is

an economic and reliable

Chinese mass produced

engine. It means that nonmechanically

minded and

those keen on tinkering with

engines, can compete on an

equal basis. The A grade karts

have 250-500cc engines with

the capability of reaching

speeds in excess of one

hundred kilometres an hour

while travelling sideways on

grass, requiring racers to have

skill and trust in their fellow

competitors.

Grass karting is a

relatively safe motor

sport with the club’s

rules focussing on

three principles: safety,

affordability and fun.

Therefore, while accidents

occur, injuries are rare

especially as all drivers

wear full safety gear.

“We want people to have a good

time and go home in one piece with

their karts undamaged,” says Greg

who adds that the turnout for club

meets is between ninety and one

hundred racers.

The Christchurch club is based at

Ohoka where it has the generous use

of farm land on which to race. Meets

are the first Sunday of every month;

alternating with those of the other

Canterbury clubs so members can

race every weekend should they

choose to travel between the clubs.

Club championships for the club

will be held on Sunday, 6th November

at Edmunds Road, Ohoka. Anyone

interested in the sport is welcome to

attend, with no charge for spectators.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

You drive it – we fix it

No matter what type of vehicle

you drive, Jones Road Auto and

Selwyn Auto can service it.

They can handle all makes and models

of vehicle from the small runabout, larger

family SUV, motor home through to small

commercial vehicles. Whether you need

a warrant of fitness, vehicle servicing and

repairs, auto electrical diagnostics or engine

overhauls – the teams at Jones Road Auto

and Selwyn Auto can deal with it.

They are also Motor Trade Association

(MTA) assured which gives customers

added protection. Being a member of the

MTA means they have to uphold a high

standard of workmanship and service

which also comes with warranties on the

work they do.

New to Selwyn Auto is a motorcycle repair

service. These are carried out by a specialist

motorcycle mechanic who can also work on

farm bikes (two and four wheelers) and can

repair any make or model; a service that is

rare in Selwyn.

Both workshops are also accredited to

service fleet vehicles through some of the

main fleet leasing companies.

For your convenience there are courtesy

cars available and Jones Road Auto also

works in with a neighbouring car grooming

business, so you can book your vehicle in for

repairs or a service as well as a car groom.

Lisa and Nigel purchased Jones Road

Auto four years ago and in February this

year, took over Selwyn Auto in Springston.

Jones Road Auto also works in with a neighbouring

car grooming business, so you can book your vehicle

in for repairs or a service as well as a car groom.

Since then, the businesses have grown

considerably due to the top workmanship

they provide for their customers.

They are also looking at ways to exceed

their already high standards and provide

more for their customers. This has meant

the installation of new equipment and

hoists in both workshops as well as the

ongoing training of staff so they can use the

latest technology available.

While the businesses are operated as

separate entities, the Flecks share staff and

resources. This ensures a quick turnaround

of customers’ vehicles and access to a

broader range of expertise.

This year, Nigel and Lisa have employed

more staff. They now have fourteen locals

working across the two businesses and are

hoping to employ more workers at their

Selwyn branch next year. Currently, they

have a pre-apprentice at Jones Road and

also hope to employ an apprentice at Selwyn

Auto next year.

In addition to looking after the motoring

needs of locals and providing employment

opportunities, The Flecks provide on-going

sponsorship to local schools and sports

clubs.

“It’s nice to give back to the community,”

explains Lisa.

You will find Jones Road Auto at 851

Jones Road in Rolleston and Selwyn Auto

at 132 Leeston Road (the Springston end).

Their friendly staff will be only too happy

to help you sort out your motor vehicle

repair and servicing needs.

Driven

Luxury, practicality in big Mercedes SUV

• By Ross Kiddie

PROJECTIONS for New

Zealand’s new car sales

in 2016 and 2017 are mindboggling.

Some analysts are suggesting

that around 140,000 new cars

will be sold here this year, with

up to 150,000 next year.

That’s on the back of a constant

increase in sales since the

global financial crisis ended.

Putting that into context, in

2008 new car sales here peaked

at just 73,400 units.

The manufacturers are generally

happy with the new trend,

and all agree it is the popularity

of the sport utility market which

is driving up demand.

There’s a host of SUVs in our

market, and they cater for all

manner of budgets. If you have

a bit of extra cash to spend and

need a seven-seater, Mercedes-

Benz has the GLS series which

starts at $139,000 and ends

$100,000 above that. In between

there are two other variants listing

at $160,000 and $198,000.

Each variant is determined

by engine size and type. The

test car was the entry-level

variant, and it gets a 3-litre,

turbocharged V6 diesel; for an

extra $21,000 you can get the

same vehicle with a host of extra

AMG bits and increased safety

MERCEDES-BENZ GLS: Caters for seven occupants in comfort.

specification, a 4.7-litre petrol

variant sits above that, while the

range tops out with a 5.5-litre

V8 with full AMG kit.

Even in standard form the

GLS is a pretty smart piece of

machinery, all variants have the

Mercedes-Benz 4Matic fourwheel-drive

system, and have an

in-cabin structure which easily

caters for seven occupants in

comfort.

The GLS is a large SUV, it

stretches nearly 5m and feels

big to drive, I’m not saying it is

awkward, but you sit tall off the

road and it does test the innercity

metered car park. But, saying

that, it does have all of the

park assist features and cameras

which make that mission a lot

easier than it sounds.

And the GLS feels spritely. I

find it amazing how so much

power can be gleaned from

European engines, yet at the

same time they don’t tax our fossil

fuel reserves. The important

figures go something like this

– 190kW and 620Nm of torque

while fuel usage is rated at just

7.6l/100km (37mpg).

With the high torque figure,

and the low area in which it is

developed (1600rpm-2400rpm),

the GLS is quick under acceleration,

it will launch to 100km/h

from a standstill in 7.8sec and

will make a 4.1sec 80km/h to

120km/h highway overtake.

On the subject of fuel usage,

the trip computer was constantly

listing around 9l/100km

(31mpg) during testing time

with 7l/100km (40mpg) available

instantaneously at 100km/h, the

rev counter pointing to a very

lazy 1500rpm.

Not that the engine is lazy, it

works freely and disguises well

the traditional diesel throb.

Power is transferred through a

nine-speed conventional automatic

gearbox, and with the constant

supply of ratios the engine

is kept well within its preferred

power bands. Response to throttle

request is instant and fluid,

there is little gear change detection,

and the engine drive process

is well organised.

Considering the big GLS

weighs in excess of two-tonne,

all of these factors are even more

remarkable. There are also several

drive modes that the driver

can dial in to sustain varying

conditions.

Most are to glean grip on

unsealed surfaces and undulating

terrain, but there’s also

a sport mode for when tight

sealed road challenges are presented.

I took the test car on an

inland route though to Loburn,

and while some of the corners

were a handling test the GLS

responded with much dignity.

I used the sport suspension

settings which were fit for the

purpose, body balance is well

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

GLS 350d, $139,000

• Dimensions – Length,

5130mm; width, 1934mm;

height, 1850mm

• Configuration – V6, fourwheel-drive,

2987cc,

190kW, 620Nm, nine-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

contained, and the steering

is strongly loaded for turn-in

feedback. The GLS in this form

is fitted with 20in wheels and

tyres which are factored for

on and off-road surfaces. Even

considering the higher grade

models have wheels 21in and

22in respectively, the GLS in

standard form isn’t undertyred,

it feels secure on the road, grip

and stability are well engineered

into the vehicle.

Given its heritage, it’s not surprising

the GLS is a premium

vehicle, it is beautifully built and

exudes comfort. It can also be

optioned to suit buyers’ preference

in terms of family needs

and demands, the option list is

extensive so that all who travel

in the vehicle can do so in style,

and in a fashion where it is far

from a hardship.

Show homeS

There are many things to think about when you’re

considering building a new home. Browsing show homes

is a fantastic way to get you thinking about practicalities,

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

considerations to help spark your planning process.

652 East Maddisons Road Rolleston, Selwyn

Early enquiry recommended

Located within the Lowes Road ODP Area and zoned Living Z

this property is worthy of consideration for possible immediate

residential development (subject to necessary council consent

/ processes) in conjunction with neighbouring properties or as

an investment opportunity with residential development always

featuring as the most likely longer term land use. The North

West boundary of the property is shared with existing residential

properties and the South West boundary of almost 200 metres

What is your exterior style? What kind

of homes do you like? Edgy and

contemporary, classic elegance, country

lodge? Look around and take a mental

note of what you are drawn to most.

What kind of exterior materials do you

like? Would a brick home suit you, or

a modern material board? Once you’ve

worked out the look you like, research what

materials are available and find out about

their durability.

How will you use your house? Do you

do a lot of entertaining? It’s important to

most people to have good indoor/outdoor

flow and attractive, sheltered outdoor

living. Try to imagine your new home in

various seasons.

Landscaping will be an important part

of your project. Look around at other

homes and show homes and consider

what you like and what you don’t like. Are

you a structured formal garden type or

do you like a contemporary native style?

Start collecting photos from magazines of

gardens you admire.

Sustainability and future-proofing aren’t

just buzzwords anymore. It’s very important

for your new home to be designed to be

environmentally friendly and to take full

advantage of natural attributes such as solar

energy. Research insulation requirements,

solar hot water heating, ventilation options

and new technology to ensure you’re getting

a home that will be affordable to run.

Interior decor is a really exciting part of

your project. This is where show homes

can really help you get to know current

trends, colours, beautiful furnishings and

furniture. Collect home magazines as well

and make up a folder of interior decors you

would love to emulate.

Also pause to give thought to

architectural components inside. Do you

like a raised ceiling? What kind of finishing

do top homes use and which styles are you

drawn to?

Heating is also a consideration. Have a

look at what show homes are offering.

Kitchens form the heart of the house.

Show homes give you insight into

the latest styles, materials and storage

facilities available.

Bathrooms are another big component.

They need to be as luxurious as you can

make them, so start dreaming.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Local entrepreneurs create

local opportunities

Residents of Faringdon will have shops in the neighbourhood,

when South Point opens, at the end of March 2017.

With two restaurants and an

upmarket fish and chip shop

already signed up, those living

in the wider Rolleston area will

also benefit from this new retail

precinct.

Construction began on South

Point, earlier

this year and

already ninety

percent of shop

space has been

leased. Only two

smaller shops

(each of fifty

square metres)

are now available

for lease.

A total of

eight shops including

upstairs

premises will

be part of this

boutique shopping centre which

is being constructed by sisters:

Jo Southen, Tania Croucher and

Bridget Foster. They grew up in

Rolleston and while Bridget now

lives in England, Jo and Tania are

still locals.

The sisters are passionate

about Rolleston and have completed

land developments such

as Flyndon Grove. Their shared

skills and experience equips them

for this new venture. Bridget is

a Group Finance Manager for

a Property Investment Fund in

the United Kingdom, Tania has a

background in land development,

Jo Southen and Tania Croucher

and Jo previously owned The

Watershed Bar and Restaurant in

Ferrymead.

“We saw the need for a quality

intimate shopping centre,”

explains Jo.

Their aim has been to attract

quality tenants with the line-up of

those who have signed up including

Pedal Pushers from Lincoln

Road opening their second bar

and restaurant at South Point; an

Indian restaurant; Hooked Fish

and Chips; New Order clothing

and accessories boutique; Faringdon

Convenience Store and Post

Shop; and the Selwyn School of

Dance, which will be on the first

floor.

“The convenience store, New

Order, Selwyn School of Dance

and Hooked Fish and Chips will

be operated by locals,” says Jo.

“Both Pedal Pushers and the

Indian restaurant will be employing

locals.”

The two premises still available

would be ideal for a hairdresser,

beautician, gift and homeware

store, or service provider such as

a real estate or property management

office.

South Point will

be just over a 1,000

square metres in

floor space and will

have forty two car

parks on site.

“We wanted South

Point to be different

and welcoming from

all angles as it has

roads on four sides,

so people could

come for a coffee

and not have to walk

through the car park

to get to the other shops. Tom

Craig Architecture designed the

building so it would have no back

while still being a very practical

structure,” explains Jo.

While the complex looks

like one building, it is split.

Pedal Pushers and two shops are

separated by a walkway providing

access to the other shops so

there is no need to walk around

the building and wide eaves offer

shelter between the shops.

Rolleston is said to be underserviced

by retailers so South

Point will help fill the gap and

offer some interesting outlets.

Guy and Kate’s family love

playing tennis.

So we designed their home around

the court to maximise their game time.

Prepare

for Summer

Throw open the windows and doors and invite

the sunshine in with a few important chores to

get you set for summer.

With a few hot days last

month, we are reminded

that summer days are not far

behind.

Now is the time to prepare our homes, so

by the time summer rolls around we can sit

back and enjoy the fruits of our labour.

Start indoors by throwing the windows

and doors open to let in some fresh air.

Clean the windows inside and out so you

can admire your view across your garden.

Replace your cosy winter flannel sheets

and heavy duvet covers for lighter linens

with a high thread count, and refresh your

colour scheme with throws and scatter

cushions in lighter, brighter hues for

summery appeal.

While you’re in the bedroom, reorganise

your wardrobe by packing away winter

outfits to make room for summer dresses

and sandals. Dry cleaning woolen items

before putting them into storage, and any

cotton and synthetic fibres you store with

them, will prevent moth damage.

If you haven’t aired your guest bedroom

since last year, this is a good opportunity

to refresh this one as you have with the

other bedrooms to save the mad rush as

Christmas draws near.

Refresh bathrooms with new towels

in a splash of vibrant colour, ventilate by

throwing the windows open and adding a

plant beside the sink to filter the air. Look

for plants with high purification levels, like

snake plants, spider plants, English ivy and

small-leafed rubber plants.

Next room of attack is the kitchen.

Empty out the freezer and defrost it

completely. Now is the perfect time to

throw out anything that has been in there

over a year (less time for ground meat,

chicken and leftovers), as frozen food loses

flavour and texture over time, and will

make precious room for ice cream and meat

for the barbie. Ensure your fridge is in top

working order by giving the condensing

coils a thorough clean to remove dirt and

lint.

With barbeque season beckoning, now is

the time to make sure you have all the BBQ

essentials and that your BBQ has a full gas

tank and is clean. If you have a charcoal grill,

it pays to invest in an inexpensive chimney

starter to quickly and safely light the coals,

as using lighter fluid can permeate the taste

of your food.

While you are uncovering the barbie

from the dark depths of the garage, you can

say goodbye to the snow chains, shovels

and skis, and make way for all your summer

gardening and entertaining gear.

Dust off the outdoor furniture and

organise your garage, so when the next hot

day arrives you’ll be all set to grab what you

need to hit the beach.

Give patios a good scrub with a broom

and hot soapy water or hire a water blaster

from your local home centre to do the job.

While you are

uncovering the barbie

from the dark depths

of the garage, you

can say goodbye

to the snow chains,

shovels and skis, and

make way for all your

summer gardening

and entertaining gear.

Key reasons

to buy new

Buying new has many advantages. No one has

yet lived in your brand new home and it has that

new home smell and feel.

That doesn’t appeal to the villa crowd.

But many people dream of a home in a

new suburb.

There are many other advantages --

such as being able to customise the home

before it’s built. Buyers love it that their

build guarantee covers most things and

there’s little maintenance to do for the first

10 years.

There are a long list of reasons some

people dream of buying new.

They include:

• Current Building Code requirements

specify a higher standard of insulation

and glazing than you can expect in an

older home, which makes your new home

warmer in winter and cooler in summer,

meaning cheaper to run. In addition

there has been a vast improvement in the

quality and technology of construction

materials over the last decade.

• New homes are designed for modern

lifestyles with walk-in wardrobes, double

or triple car garaging, en suites and heat

pumps.

• Internal access garaging.

• Indoor-outdoor flow. Home builders

before the 1970s rarely thought about this.

• Automatic pool covers and electric

curtains are included in a lot of new

homes, he says.

• In a new subdivision you’re not going

to have five cross-leased small homes next

door to your architecturally designed fivebedroom

dream home, he says.

• New purpose-built shopping and

service centres cater for the modern life.

• New schools can be popular. New

schools are being designed with “Modern

Learning Environments”, which are

considered better layouts for 21st-century

learning.

Another important factor is it’s easier

to get a mortgage. New Reserve Bank of

New Zealand loan to value (LVR) ratio

restrictions from October 1 don’t relate

to new homes. Likewise the KiwiSaver

HomeStart grant is doubled for first time

buyers.

When it comes to new apartment

buildings they’re built to a higher

standard of earthquake/fire proofing and,

hopefully, are no longer leaky.

There are, of course, disadvantages to

buying new. Not everyone wants to wait

six or 12 months to move into their home.

Other downsides include:

• Borrowing to cover the progress

payments is more complex than taking

out a mortgage on an existing property.

• Builders and developers can go broke,

leaving the buyer in an awkward position.

• With some new homes the buyer

effectively needs to become a project

manager.

• You have to deal with council for

building and sometimes resource consent.

• The location may be further from the

centre than you wanted.

• If it’s infill housing you might have a

cross lease situation that some people find

tricky.

• There are often teething problems with

a new build.

• You won’t get a quaint tree-lined

street.

• Your section will most likely be

smaller than that of an existing home.

• Fences, paths and landscaping might

need to be added at a cost.
