Influence on rates not known yet

• By Tom Doudney

STRONGER than expected

growth has lead to a big

surplus for the district but it’s

too early to know if this will

lead to smaller rates rises.

The annual

report, for the

2015/2016 year

showed revenue of

$148.9 million, well

above the $116.3

million which had

been budgeted for.

Expenditure for

the year was $86.9

million compared

with the budget of

$88.3 million.

The district council has

already pegged back its rate

increase for the current year

to three per cent, instead

of the six per cent it had

projected in the Long Term

Plan, as a result of its strong

financial position.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the report was good news but

it was not yet known how it

would influence rates in the

next financial year.

“If we can keep rates down

that’s certainly an aim of

the council but we want to

make sure we are doing the

projects that are needed for

our growing district too,” Mr

Broughton said.

In its 2015-2025 Long

Term Plan the district

council projected

annual rates rises

to be 4.5 per cent

on average.

Mr Broughton

(left) said much of

the extra revenue,

such as that which

came in the form

of development

contributions, was

already committed for future

spending.

“It’s actually getting money

earlier than we expected

rather than getting money

we didn’t expect at all, so it

doesn’t just correlate with

rates income.”

The report highlighted

“extraordinarily high”

revenue from development

contributions and vested

assets, as growth in the

district continued to outpace

expectations.

Development

contributions revenue was

$22 million, $8.3 million

above the budgeted

$13.8 million; and vested

asset revenue was $34.8

million, $11.7 million higher

than the budgeted $23.1

million.

However, as development

contributions must be spent

on growth-related costs and

vested assets are non-cash

revenue, neither could be

used to reduce rates.

Dividend revenue was

$10.1 million, $4.7 million

above the budgeted

$5.4 million, due to its

investments in Orion New

Zealand Ltd and Sicon Ltd.

It was largely this revenue

which had allowed for the

smaller rates increase for the

current year.

The district council

reported a positive operating

cashflow of $36 million

and reduced borrowings

from $55.1 million to $35.2

million during the year.

The $20 million borrowings

reduction reflected the

strong cashflow position.

There were 2687 building

consents issued over the

year.

News........................................3-7

THE WORLD is your oyster they

say and for Lincoln teenager Jaime

Spencer that is the Big Apple in

February. The 19-year-old is off

to New York for that great city’s

fashion week.

Our fashion writer Annabelle

Dick says the week is one of the

most prestigious fashion events in

the world – and hey, I’m not going

to argue with that. Jaime is one of

six New Zealand and Australian

models that have been hand-picked

to walk in several NYFW shows.

She will also be photographed

by a top line snapper, a portfolio

that will hopefully get noticed by

the big fashion houses around the

globe. But Jaime does need some

help to get to New York and is seeking

sponsorship. You can find out

more on pages 22-23.

And a good result for the district

with Selwyn’s finances (see page 1)

being in good shape.

Bid to make Coes Ford swimmable

• By Tom Doudney

A NEW campaign would aim

to make a badly degraded

waterway at one of Selwyn’s

most popular recreational spots

swimmable again – perhaps

within five years.

The Selwyn Waihora Zone

Committee will consider a

report recommending it lead

a ‘Swimmable Selwyn @ Coes

Ford’ programme to make the

Selwyn/Waikirikiri River at

Coes Ford swimmable again.

Many Selwyn residents

fondly remember picnicking

and swimming at Coes Ford but

now see the river as unattractive

and unsafe for swimming. In

September, about 50 people took

part in a protest

walk along the

length of the

river to highlight

its water quality

problems.

Flows at the

ford are consistently

low and recreational water

quality is graded as ‘poor’ with

E. coli levels having exceeded

the guideline for swimming

once or more every year since

the 2000-2001 monitoring

period.

Phormidium (potentially toxic

algae) blooms have also been a

DEGRADED: The Selwyn/Waikirikiri River at Coes Ford is the

focus of a proposed new campaign to make it swimmable

again.

problem and warning signs are

in place.

The report recommends that

the zone committee organise a

workshop with district council

and Environment Canterbury

staff to identify targets to be

achieved, key elements of a work

programme, who would do

the work and how it would be

funded.

The report suggested no E.

coli swimming standard exceedances

by 2021 as an example of a

target that might be set.

Zone committee chairman

Allen Lim (left) said the programme

was a “fantastic idea”

but committee members would

need to discuss it further at the

meeting. He said it was too early

to know if 2021 would be the

target yet.

Springston South artist and

water quality campaigner Mike

Glover said he was encouraged

by the proposal and it showed

that public pressure could make

a difference.

“It would be nice if it was

swimmable Selwyn River completely,

rather than just Coes

Ford, but it’s definitely a good

start,” Mr Glover said.

He said the problems in the

catchment had been well known

for some time, and a five-year

target would be too long.

“We have been waiting 20

years [for action to be taken] so

five years, I don’t find acceptable

to be honest.”

The recreational water quality

at Chamberlains Ford, not far

upstream, is graded ‘good’.

A study about five years ago

identified the Silverstream tributary

as the major contributor

to contaminants at Coes Ford.

Silverstream joins the Selwyn/

Waikirikiri River about 200m

above the ford.

There are many drains in the

Silverstream catchment where

stock are not excluded, in spite

of ECan’s Selwyn Te Waihora

plan change requiring cows, pigs

and deer to be kept out.

The report suggested a range

of possible measures that could

be taken in the catchment

including better protection

of springheads and wetlands,

riparian plantings and helping

Fish & Game restore the Snake

Creek trout fishery.

In Brief

BURGLARY CHARGE

A 20-year-old man has been

charged with burglary and

unlawfully entering an enclosed

yard after being found in a

caravan at a Rolleston address.

The owner of the property heard

noises coming from the caravan,

which was parked outside his

house, and called police who

arrived to find the man inside.

The man, who was found to be

in possession of an iPad taken

from another nearby house

earlier that morning, appeared

in Christchurch District Court

yesterday morning. Sergeant Alex

Pickover called on the public to

report burglaries promptly, as the

owners of the iPad had disturbed

the man during the burglary but

waited several hours to report

it. Sergeant Pickover said people

could record serial numbers of

important items on www.snap.

org.nz which would help later if

they were stolen.

LINCOLN MOTEL

The Lincoln Motel was the

third highest rated hotel in the

Christchurch area when the

trivago Awards, previously known

as the Reputation Ranking, were

announced last week. Hotels were

analysed based on 175 million

ratings from 250 online booking

sites. The hotels had to have 100 or

more reviews to qualify.

SELWYN TIMES

Regional

councillor

John Sunckell

Can I first say

thank you to the

communities

of Selwyn and

Ashburton for electing me as your

representative on Environment

Canterbury.

This is a big organisation covering

the largest geographical area in

New Zealand but with over three

quarters of its population living

in the Greater Christchurch

area – Christchurch, Selwyn and

Waimakariri.

Why is this point important? It

is important because as councillors

we swear an oath to govern for the

best interests of Canterbury not just

the constituencies we are elected

from or the population power base

of Greater Christchurch.

Enough of the politics – what is

happening in Selwyn? What are we

doing to address the environmental

concerns of this community? The

simple answer is ‘lots’.

First point – the Selwyn River at

Coes Ford. We all know that we get

E. coli flares three to four times a

year which make it unswimmable

but we are working with the

farmers and lifestyle block owners

in the Silverstream catchment that

is causing the problem.

All farms have farm environment

plans in place, 90 per cent of the

main channels have stock excluded

with work continuing and we are

beginning to look at the smaller

drains. Canterbury University are

working on riparian planting trials

and Fish & Game are very keen

to pick up a restoration project on

Snake Creek.

The second point is the success

of Central Plains Water’s stage one.

Our monitoring has shown that in

the middle of successive droughts,

water levels have held in the bores

at the bottom of that catchment in

comparison to that area north of

the Selwyn River. As that scheme

completes its next stages we will see

real water level changes and better

river flows.

You, the community, continually

remind us of your concerns and

we are beginning to bring about

change.

Call to ease back on watering

WATER

CONSERVATION:

The public are

being asked to

consider when

they water

their lawns

and whether

it’s needed

as summer

approaches.

PROPERTIES connected to

public water supplies are being

encouraged to adjust when

they water their lawns with

groundwater levels still low

and summer approaching.

District council asset

manager Murray England

said low rainfall during the

year meant groundwater levels

had not recharged well over

winter.

“During summer, water

supplies are also placed under

pressure as many people decide

to water their lawns and

gardens at the same time in

the evenings, he said.

While at this stage, the

district council has not introduced

formal water restrictions,

the recommended times

to avoid watering are the same

as for the first level of water

restrictions.

Residents on public water

supplies have been asked to

try and avoid watering lawns

between 6am and 9am, and

4pm and 9pm. When possible,

they should water between

10pm and 6am when demand

was lowest and water had

the chance to soak into the

ground.

“People may also decide to

let their lawns go brown over

summer or to water less,” Mr

England said.

“In many areas like Rolleston

and West Melton where

water meters operate choosing

to use less water will result in

people paying less in water

charges.”

Since 2015, Rolleston,

Prebbleton, Lincoln and West

Melton have all had new bores

added to supply water.

A new deep well has been

drilled at Edendale to replace

the existing well, as dropping

groundwater levels indicated

the bore would soon go dry.

In Leeston and Doyleston,

upgraded pipework, more

tank storage, a well upgrade

and new high capacity pump

are providing more water

capacity.

TAKING OFFICE: Mayor Sam Broughton receives the official chains from

district council chief executive David Ward.

• By Tom Doudney

SELWYN’S YOUNGEST ever

mayor, Sam Broughton, will have

a veteran district councillor of 14

years as his deputy.

Malcolm Lyall was unanimously

elected to the position by

his fellow district councillors at

Wednesday’s meeting after Mr

Broughton opted to forego his

right to choose and put it to a

vote.

Cr Lyall was first elected to the

district council in 1992, serving

one term, and after an absence

of 10 years was re-elected in a

by-election in 2005. He has represented

the Springs Ward ever

since.

Mr Broughton, 35, said Cr

Lyall’s experience and the fact he

came from the other side of the

district from himself made him a

good fit for the role.

“He is a good mix for me and

brings some balance,” he said.

DECISION MAKERS: The mayor and district councillors, above, were sworn in at

their first meeting on Wednesday. There are four new faces on the district council

– Craig Watson, Murray Lemon, Bob Mugford and Nicole Reid. Environment

Canterbury’s regional councillors and appointed commissioners were also sworn

in last week, at their meeting on Thursday.

Veteran Lyall appointed as deputy mayor

Mr Broughton and the other

district councillors had discussions

about who

would fit the deputy

mayor’s role

at a retreat before

the meeting and

when it came to

the vote no other

nominations were

put forward.

Cr Lyall (above) said he was

pleased at the unanimous decision.

“It was very nice to have the

support of my peers,” he said.

“Sam could have appointed a

deputy mayor but he chose to let

the councillors decide.”

Cr Lyall said he was excited

about taking on the role.

“I just want to be as supportive

as I can, Sam has got a lot on his

plate,” he said.

“As an older head I hope to be

a sounding board for him should

he need it and to be able to fill

in when he is unable to attend

events.”

Cr Lyall said he expected to be

busier now he was deputy mayor.

He had recently stepped back

from some of his charitable trust

work but would still be working

as an electrician.

“I’m certainly still out there being

an electrician, as I am today

in a very grubby old ceiling,

rewiring a house – it keeps you

grounded.’’

Olympian for highland games

FRESH FROM his first Olympic

Games in August, shot putter

Jacko Gill is about to take on

another new challenge – the

Hororata Highland Games on

Saturday.

Last year the Hororata Highland

Games was labelled the

‘largest highland games in the

Southern Hemisphere’.

The 2016 event will be no

exception with a top line-up of

competitors set to challenge for

championships across numerous

events, including Gill,

who will be competing in the

Oceania Heavyweight Championship.

“I think my favourite event

is going to be the caber toss, as

it looks impressive when done

correctly,” Gill said.

“However, I have never tossed

a caber in competition before so

it could be entertaining.”

Unsurprisingly, Gill said he

expected the throwing events to

be his strength.

“Many of them are the origins

of what we now compete in at

the Olympics and Commonwealth

Games,” he said.

A new addition to this year’s

games will be a bike polo event,

with a grudge match between

Christchurch and Timaru.

Also new is the Gough CAT

vehicle pull which consists of a

team of five pulling a ute and

mini-digger on a trailer from

start to finish, with the chance

to win $300 cash.

There will be more than 100

market stalls, as well as other

entertainment, fairground rides

and much more at the games.

The newly introduced Duncan

Cotterill stage will see entertainment

like the Hororata pie

eating competition, Southern

Celtic Fiddle Orchestra, and Ma

Bell and The Celtic Connection.

Taste of Scotland will have

food, wine, Scottish wares,

tartan and, of course, haggis to

enjoy.

In Clan Lane people can connect

or discover their Scottish

ancestry.

Other entertainment unique

to the Hororata Highland

Games will include the Society

for Creative Anachronism

FIREWORKS DANGER

The district council has a simple

message for anyone thinking of

letting off fireworks around Guy

Fawkes night on Saturday – please

don’t start a fire. Selwyn principal

rural fire officer Douglas Marshall

said volunteer fire brigades were

normally very busy around this

time and he appealed for people to

keep fireworks away from hedges,

shrubs, or long grass. Safety

guidelines included not lighting

fireworks in windy or hot conditions,

having a water supply near

by and keeping animals safe. Sky

lanterns, also known as Chinese

lanterns, were a significant risk if

allowed to fly away.

FORKLIFT FIRE

Rolleston firefighters had to break

into a private yard on Jones Rd,

Rolleston, on Wednesday to put

out a forklift fire which started

while no one was at the property.

Workers over the road saw the fire

and alerted the fire service. A passerby

had used a fire extinguisher

before firefighters arrived to finish

the job. Rolleston fire chief Nigel

Lilley said that, thanks to the actions

of the passerby, the forklift

was not too badly damaged by the

fire which was believed to have

started from an electrical fault.

They had cut the padlock off the

yard’s gate to access the forklift.

Future doctors of Clearview

THREE Christchurch Hospital

doctors recently spent some time

educating Clearview Primary pupils

about medical care while on strike

over working hours.

The doctors took part in a ‘teddy

bear clinic’ with year 2 and 3 pupils.

The pupils were able to bring in

teddies from home to discuss any

problems with the doctors.

They went to a ‘broken bones’

clinic with Dr Andrew Curtis, a general

practice with Dr Emiline Galvin

and, if more drastic operations were

needed, Dr Tom Clarkson was the

local surgeon guiding the children

through a range of procedures on

their teddy bears.

The children created mysterious

illnesses and learnt how to splint

Pupils have fun protecting

wetland environment

A WETLAND restoration

day was full of memorable

experiences for 150 year 5 and 6

Lincoln Primary pupils.

How often would they hold a

weta, catch an eel or weave with

harakeke?

The restoration took place at

Ararira Wetland/Yarrs Flat on

the shore of Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere. The area is a Department

of Conservation wildlife

reserve and a small part of it,

previously used for grazing,

is now the focus of a planting

project.

The pupils were there as part of

the collaborative Kids Discovery

Plant-Out project, run by the Te

Ara Kakariki Greenway Canterbury

Trust, Enviroschools and

the district council.

While restoring the habitat

at public sites is a feature of the

plant-out days, other activities

are also organised to engage

pupils with the value of each

environment they are restoring.

The plant-out at Yarrs Flat

was supported by Living Water,

a partnership between Fonterra

and DOC, which aims to

improve biodiversity and water

quality in five significant dairying

regions across New Zealand.

This was also the first time students

from Lincoln University’s

Global Challenges programme

took a lead in facilitating one of

the plant-out activities.

The university students have

formed a social enterprise named

Adopt a Waterway and have been

taking their cause to schools and

the community, so that everyone

can join the journey to help solve

the issue of decreasing water

quality.

The activity they arranged for

the pupils was to investigate the

types of aquatic life in the stream

and think about how healthy or

polluted it was.

One of the facilitators, Baylee

Kersten, said the pupils were

pleased to observe an eel close

up – although the eel wasn’t so

happy after being plucked out of

its comfort zone and put on show

for the day.

GOOD EFFORT:

Reverend

Jenni Carter

presented

the vicar’s

award in the

Creative Kids

competition to

Toby Driscoll, 5.

Below – Other

Creative Kids

winners

Big crowd for parish fair

MORE THAN 2000 people

turned out for various

competitions, stalls and

other entertainment at the

recent Hororata Parish Fair.

Children decorated

spring-themed footwear

and gingerbread people in

the creative kids competitions.

The supreme judge’s

award winner was Hannah

Booth, 13, of Hororata,

and the vicar’s award went

to Toby Driscoll, 5, of

Coalgate.

The children’s athletic

competitions drew a big

crowd with parents and

grandparents cheering on

their children in the sack

races, egg and spoon races

and the gumboot toss.

Pedalmania was also a

popular attraction with

bikes that go sideways and

pedals pushed backwards.

The event was offered free

thanks to some local donations.

The country auction saw

some fierce bidding for a

few select items. A very old

tricycle has gone to a new

home, a pure wool blanket

will be treasured and many

families found bargains

for household and garden

items.

Reverend Jenni Carter

thanked the volunteers for

making it a great day.

“The community really

pulled together to create an

extraordinary fun family

day. Good spirits, friendly

punters, quality stalls and

fantastic auctioneers,” she

said.

sense

When to water your lawn

Don’t irrigate between 6-9am or 4-9pm daily

Help us keep water

flowing over summer...

As summer approaches, properties connected

to Council water supplies are being encouraged

to adjust when they water their lawns in line with

level 1 water restrictions. During summer demand

for water increases significantly as many people

water their lawns and gardens at the same time.

While Selwyn has experienced moderate rainfall in October, groundwater levels

remain low. So that we can continue to supply households with good water pressure

and help conserve water over summer, we are asking residents on Council water

supplies to avoid watering their lawns at times of peak demand for water.

If demand for water increases over summer then water restrictions may be introduced

requiring households to avoid watering lawns at specific times. Summer water

restrictions are commonly used in New Zealand as a way to manage demand for water.

6PM

Check weather conditions before watering

We recommend you check weather conditions before watering. Watering your lawn

during the middle of the day during hot days or when a Nor’ West is blowing results

in a lot of water evaporating and watering in these conditions is not recommended.

Watering on a cooler overcast day is a better option as provides the best

opportunity for water to soak into your lawn or garden.

Tips for managing your water use

∙ Water your garden and lawn every few days rather than every day. Wetting the soil

surface every day encourages roots to develop at the surface, making them more

vulnerable to hot dry spells

∙ Watering for shorter periods lets the soil absorb more water than continuous watering

∙ Using watering cans or watering plants by hose uses less water than a sprinkler

∙ Use mulch or cover the soil with organic matter to keep the soil moist. Mulches

protect plant roots from the drying effects of sun and wind and reduce weeds

∙ Check you have the right sprinkler head. It should apply water gently so it seeps into

the soil. Some sprinklers apply more water than the soil can absorb

∙ When adding plants choose drought-resistant plants that don’t require a lot of water

∙ Inspect hoses and taps indoors and outdoors to check for leaks which waste water.

Raw dairy milk

operation at

Aylesbury

AN AYLESBURY dairy farming

couple’s taste for raw milk and the

dairy downturn inspired them to

start a new business on their farm.

Mark and Kelsey Williams

have launched their new raw milk

brand Aylesbury Creamery.

The couple are hoping to produce

about 200-litres a day.

“With the dairy downturn you

are sort of looking for ways to

take the variable out of the equation,”

Mr Williams said.

“We just sort of thought oh well,

how can we make this part of our

own business instead of relying on

Fonterra to make our money for

us. I use the milk myself because I

get asthma and I think it’s beneficial

healthwise for people.”

By law unpasteurised milk has

to be sold straight off the farm,

not from shops.

Mr Williams didn’t expect

people having to travel to his farm

to buy the milk to be too much of

an issue.

“We have got about 27,0000

people within a 10km radius of

us – we are only five minutes out

of Rolleston.”

A warning on the Ministry

of Primary Industries’ website

warns the product carries the risk

of possible contamination with

illness-causing bacteria.

Concert for Maddie at Rolleston

• By Tom Doudney

A HEART-TO-HEART

conversation about hope

between a mother and her

musician daughter led them

to organise a charity variety

concert to help fund

a potentially life-changing

kidney transplant for West

Melton teenager Maddie

Collins.

The Maddie Concert at

the Rolleston Community

Centre on November 26, will

feature ballerinas, rock bands,

a Chinese orchestra, solo jazz

singers, hip hop, musical theatre,

Russian, Indian and Nepali

dancers and singers.

Friends and family of Maddie,

12, are trying to raise the

$350,000 needed to get her an

operation in the United States.

The idea for the concert came

from a conversation between

18-year-old Mim Jensen, whose

band Blind Love will play at the

concert, and her mother Heidi

Jensen-Warren.

Ms Jensen, a jazz school

student at Ara Institute of

Canterbury, came home one day

feeling despondent and in tears

about the many problems in the

world.

However, Mrs Jensen-Warren

said to her daughter: “I believe

music can change the world and

I believe especially your music

can change the world.”

They were thinking about

ways to raise funds to help

others through Ms Jensen’s

music when they saw an article

about Maddie on the front page

of The Star.

Mrs Jensen-Warren had

suffered less serious kidney

ailments earlier in her life

and they both felt moved by

Maddie’s predicament.

Ms Jensen said they wanted to

show their compassion and do

something to help Maddie.

“I think the main thing

about something like this is

it kind of goes to show that one

or two people can actually make

a significant difference,” she

said.

“Through this process of

getting musicians and getting

people to come together as a

collective and a community to

do something positive actually

has really restored my faith in

humanity.”

SELWYN TIMES

FROM THE HEART: Mim

Jensen and Seb Warren

of Blind Love will play at

a charity concert for West

Collins (above).

Along with The Maddie

Concert, the pair also organised

Arthur’s Pass trust wins award

ARTHUR’S PASS Wildlife Trust

beat out two other finalists to

win the Canterbury Aoraki

Conservation Board’s biodiversity

award.

The conservation board’s

awards evening was held on

Thursday at the Christchurch Art

Gallery.

The other two finalists nominated

in the biodiversity category

were the Banks Peninsula Conservation

Trust and the Coleridge

Habitat Enhancement Trust.

The Arthur’s Pass Wildlife Trust

was set up in 2010 to formalise

work started by a number of residents

to help local wildlife thrive.

Originally the main focus was

on increasing the number of great

spotted kiwi in the area, which

were fitted with transmitters and

monitored.

Existing trap lines that had been

set up in 2005 by local residents

were extended to protect larger

areas.

The kiwi project was unique

in that eggs and chicks were not

taken from the nests to be incubated

elsewhere. They were left in

the burrow to fend for themselves.

The trapping programme was

effective in keeping predators

at bay and the kiwi population

increased. It was clear that the

trapping programme was also

assisting other species, with

general bird numbers increasing,

more kea and whio sightings,

and predator catch numbers

decreasing.

In the past year, APWT has

taken over the management of

what were known as the coast to

coast trap lines, increasing its trap

numbers to more than 700.

APWT aims to have Arthur’s

Pass predator-free well before

2050. It will put the $2000

SWEET SUCCESS: Bernard Christeller and Belinda Edmond

won the Suckling Trophy at Rhodes Park Domain, Tai Tapu, on

Sunday and a new tennis and netball pavilion was opened.

New tennis pavilion

opened in Tai Tapu

• By Tom Doudney

A NEW tennis and netball

pavilion was opened at Rhodes

Park Domain on Sunday in

conjunction with the Tai Tapu

Tennis Club’s annual Suckling

Trophy tournament.

The previous pavilion and

tennis courts at the domain in

Tai Tapu were damaged in the

September 2010 earthquake and

the courts were replaced in 2013

at a different part of the domain,

less prone to earthquake damage.

Tai Tapu Tennis Club president

Belinda Edmond said funding

for the new pavilion had come

from several sources, including

insurance money, the district

council, club fundraising and,

crucially, a substantial donation

from an anonymous local

benefactor.

Club member Mark Morrish

had put in a lot of time overseeing

the building process.

“We’ve had a huge amount of

community support, it has been

quite humbling and overwhelming

really,” Edmond said.

“We believe it is the prettiest

tennis environment in Ellesmere

and we’re very excited to have [the

pavilion] back.”

Edmond and her mixed doubles

partner Bernard Christeller won

the Suckling Trophy tournament.

SPEED MACHINE: Rolleston’s Zac Christensen, 12, broke a track record on the way to winning

his first South Island Sprint Championships karting title. He won the final, hosted by KartSport

Canterbury in Halswell, with a time of 34.007 seconds, four seconds ahead of second place.

Zac, who races in the junior restricted class, has had a great year, winning events including

the Mainland Series, Southern Series, Spirit of the Nation Southland and the Jason Richards

Memorial Meeting in Nelson. He also races regularly in the North Island and finished fourth

overall in the Wellington Provincial Karting Association series. Zac’s goal now is to win a New

Zealand title at next year’s National Sprint Championships, hosted by KartSport Invercargill, on

Easter weekend. He is looking for local businesses to provide sponsorship and enable him to

go further in the sport.

THE ELLESMERE Cup

competition is still tight with

only two points separating the

top four teams.

Leeston 1 are holding onto the

lead with eight points followed

by Diamond Harbour, Lincoln 1,

Lincoln 5 and Lincoln 6 all on six

points.

In the Chatterton Cup, Tai

Tapu are still in the lead after five

with a possible eight points each

up for grabs on Saturday, some

of the other contenders like

Diamond Harbour may not be

far behind.

Double header competitions

in Christchurch this year, due

to the World Bowls Championships

later this month, have

affected the scheduling of the

Rooster competition and not all

teams have played all rounds to

date. This means competition

may need to be completed after

Christmas.

With one game in hand, Dunsandel

are in second place on 16

points with Lincoln 3 leading on

18. It is still anyone’s competition

at this stage, but with only two

rounds to complete the competition,

some teams will have to get

Masters of croquet golf

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE HORNBY Croquet Club

hauled in 11 medals at the South

Island Masters Games in Timaru.

A group of about 10 from the

club travelled to Timaru to compete

in the croquet golf ​section

recently.

The team won six gold, three

silver and two bronze medals.

Club members Annette Wilson,

Rosemary Beckett and Eric

Ogier won two medals each in

their singles and doubles competitions.

Club committee member Neil

Williams said it was “definitely one

of the best years” the club has had.

“It is a good effort for one fairly

small club,” he said.

The club, made up of members

aged 60 to 80 and based in the

Hornby Domain, was set up to

encourage people to get involved

with croquet golf.

Every Tuesday, Thursday and

Saturday afternoon from 1-3pm,

the club room is open and

anyone can call in to try out the

game.

Club treasurer Barbara

McLeod said four years ago, the

club had only eight members

but now has a “thriving

membership” of more than 30

players.

BACK TO SCHOOL: Burnham School pupils had a special visit

from a former pupil on Friday – Brisbane Broncos star Kodi

Nikorima. Nikorima, who made his international debut for

the Kiwis last year, spent the day talking to students about

his playing career, school and working hard to achieve your

dreams. He also spent some time kicking the ball around and

signed a Brisbane Broncos jersey for Taimana Harris, 6 (top

Halswell losses

first one-day

match of the

season

HALSWELL HAS lost its first

one-day cricket match of the

season, going down to Merivale-

Papanui in the final over at

Halswell Domain on Saturday.

After being asked to bat first on

a wet track, Halswell got off to a

bad start with both openers back

in the shed and the score on 10.

Captain Leighton Johnston

and Dayle Eathorne showed their

experience in getting Halswell

back on track before Eathorne was

dismissed for 25.

Halswell kept on losing regular

wickets and were dismissed for

141 with Johnston scoring a

patient 47.

Halswell bowled and fielded

very well for the first half of the

Merivale-Papanui innings, having

them 43/3 after 25 overs.

However, two crucial dropped

catches came back to haunt

Halswell, as Merivale-Papanui

went into the final over needing

eight runs with three wickets in

hand.

They scored these runs with two

balls remaining.

Mike Chatterton and Johnston

both took two wickets for

Halswell.

Next week, Halswell will be

looking to bounce back in a double

header against New Brighton

and Southern Districts.

Big season expected at

Ruapuna Speedway

THIS SUMMER promises to be

one of the very best for Ruapuna

Speedway competitors and

enthusiasts, club president Allan

Daly says.

The 56th summer of speedway

at Ruapuna gets underway on Saturday

with the King of the Clay.

The centrepiece event of the

season is likely to be the 47th New

Zealand Sprintcar Championship

in January.

“We anticipate close on 40 entries

for this event,” Mr Daly said.

“With the championship allocations

being what they are, we

may not see this championship

in Christchurch for another six

years.”

Although the crowd-pleasing

V8 sprintcars feature prominently

in the 13-meeting race calendar,

Mr Daly said there would be

something for everyone.

“We are wrapped to be hosting

this summer’s South Island

Sidecar Championship,” he said.

“We have the South Island

Midget Car Championship and

the New Zealand Midget Grand

Prix, while the TQs, modified

sprints and six shooters will

all have plenty to race for this

summer.”

Ruapuna will also host two

rounds of the Hydraulink Sprintcar

War of the Wings series, as

well as the annual Gold Cup and

Salute to Goodie events.

Speedway practice.

“We are thrilled with the influx

of competitors in all classes, but

I think it’s fair to say that the

sprintcars really are thriving,” Mr

Daly said.

“We have had two top saloon

car drivers in Martin Harcourt

and Jackson Lovelady move

across into the sprintcars, as

has former national modified

champion Luke Keegan. Trevor

Wishart has shifted back across

from Australia and has looked

sharp in practices and, with

17 registered Christchurch

sprintcars, it’s a big increase.”

The midget car class has also

had a couple of high profile ‘arrivals’

with former TQ standouts

Scott Bailey and Jeremy Webb

moving up.

Once again, a strong contingent

of Selwyn drivers will be regular

competitors and Mr Daly said

that many of the front runners

came from the district.

“I’m picking that the likes of

midget car racers, Glenn Everett

(Lincoln), Dave Kerr (Leeston),

Tom Lumsden (Southbridge) and

Glen Durie (Rolleston) will be

among the front-runners. While

in the big V8 sprintcars, you have

Shaun Ashton (Leeston), Lindsay

Gilbert (Southbridge), Jackson

Lovelady (Darfield) and Jason

Smith from Rolleston, who are

all right at the pointy end of the

field.”

Mr Daly was also upbeat about

the club’s future, with a stadium

redevelopment programme in

place that will see improvements to

the track over the next five years.

class at the recent Ashburton

Trust Junior Open tennis

tournament. Nathan, who was

the second seed, beat third

seed Duncan McCall (right)

2-6, 6-3, 6-2 in the final.

Nathan’s Killinchy club

doubles partner, Ben Smith,

of Irwell, finished third. Ben,

the eighth seed, beat first

seed Liam Barrett 7-6, 6-4

in the quarter-final before

coming close to upsetting

Duncan in the semi-final,

losing 3-6, 6-1, 7-5.

TITLE: Lincoln golfers Mitch Holland (left), Robson Harker,

Taylor Holland, Cameron Harker, Tom Miller and Jack

Knewstubb won the Canterbury junior inter-club foursome

championship recently. The Lincoln team dominated the

competition, finishing on 319 points ahead of Kaiapoi on 300

and Russley on 299.

Monday 7th noveMber

The Laboratory are proud to present Woolston

Brass with their Music Director Tyme Marsters to

provide an entertaining evening of all things brass.

Bring your dancing shoes, children and grandads!

This is sure to be an enjoyable evening for all ages.

Woolston Brass have put together a foot-tapping

programme especially for Lincoln and are likely

to raise the roof with their awesome sound. The

night will feature the talented Woolston Brass

performing brass band pieces to jazzy and popular

charts, and everything in between. Soloists include

Anthony Smith (Principal Cornet) and Bryce

Fairweather (Principal Euphonium) and vocalists

Abbie Marsters and Caroline Blackmore.

Since its formation in 1891 as The Woolston Band,

this now iconic performing arts organisation has

maintained a playing strength of around thirty

musicians, with members drawn from all walks

of life and age groups being brought together by

a creative talent for making music. The band has

always remained true to the ideal expressed in its

Maori motto, Tohea kia kaha (Persevere, so there

is Strength) and now also hosts a learners group

and two training bands as part of The Woolston

Brass Academy. Woolston Brass’ 125 year history

records an abundance of championship success,

overseas expeditions and colourful characters,

many of whom have represented Woolston in

National and Youth Bands of New Zealand.

Woolston Brass is current Brass Band Champions

of Canterbury and the National Street March, and

gained second place this year at the National Brass

Band Championships held in Napier. Night Out

at The Laboratory will showcase Woolston Brass’

talent and versatility of all genres. One of New

Zealand’s premier brass bands and this event is

not to be missed!

The Laboratory is opening especially on a Monday

(when normally closed) so the whole venue will

be given over to the show. Doors open at 5.30pm

and the show starts at 7pm. The bar will be open

with a delicious menu available on the night but

seats are limited, so do book a table by calling

325 3006 if you have purchased a ticket and want

to ensure you get a great seat to dine while you

enjoy the show.

Tickets are $15 ($5 for under 18s) and available

over the bar or online from eventfinda.co.nz

New community facility

planned for Tai Tapu

The Tai Tapu Community Facilities Joint Working Group will host a public meeting on new

community facility plans on Monday 7 November at Tai Tapu School Hall at 7pm.

The working group represents the Tai Tapu Residents Association, the Tai Tapu Hall committee,

the Rhodes Park Combined Sports Body, the Rhodes Park Domain Board and Selwyn District

Council. It has been looking at community facilities in Tai Tapu, including a new facility and the

future of the community hall and the Rhodes Park pavilion.

The group is proposing to build a new joint community/sports facility on Rhodes Park. This would

result in the current hall and the Rhodes Park sports facility being demolished. It is proposed the

new facility include community and sports lounges with a kitchen and bar, a covered outdoor

area, changing rooms and shower and toilet facilities. You can view the proposal and make

comments at www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay until 21 November. If you would like to speak with

someone, please phone John on 347 2772, or email John.Reid@selwyn.govt.nz

Help us keep water flowing this summer

As summer approaches, properties connected to Council water supplies are being encouraged to adjust

when they water their lawns.

Rainfall has also been low in 2016, so ground water levels have not recharged properly over winter.

During summer water supplies are placed under pressure as many people decide to water their lawns

and gardens at the same time. So that we can continue to supply households with water over summer

and help conserve water, we are asking residents on Council water supplies to try to avoid watering lawns

between 6am-9am and 4pm-9pm daily. These are times when households use the most water.

Since 2015, Rolleston, Prebbleton, Lincoln and West Melton have all had new bores added to supply

these areas. A new deep well has been drilled at Edendale to replace the existing well, as dropping

groundwater levels indicated the bore would soon go dry. In Leeston and Doyleston, a new pipe, more

tank storage, a well upgrade and new high capacity pump are providing more capacity.

If demand for water increases over summer then water restrictions may be introduced requiring

households to avoid watering lawns at specific times. Summer water restrictions are commonly used in

New Zealand as a way to manage demand for water.

When to water your lawn

Don’t irrigate between

6-9am or 4-9pm daily

Check weather conditions

before watering

We recommend you check

weather conditions before

watering. Watering your

lawn during the middle of

the day during hot days or

when a Nor’ West is blowing

results in a lot of water

evaporating and watering

in these conditions is not

recommended. Watering on

a cooler overcast day is a

better option as water has

the opportunity to soak into

your lawn or garden

Irrigate wisely

Don’t let fireworks start a fire

With Guy Fawkes coming up, Selwyn residents are being reminded

to be safe and considerate if using fireworks.

There are two public fireworks displays being held in Selwyn on

Saturday 5 November.

The Rolleston display will be held at Foster Park, from 5pm

onwards. The event is organised by the Rolleston Residents

Association and Rolleston Reserve Committee and will include

games, rides, stalls and food. Entry is $5 per person or $10 for a

family. No dogs or alcohol are permitted. $5 parking is available at

Clearview School and near the Broadlands Drive/ Rolleston Road

intersection opposite Rolleston College. If wet, the event may be

postponed to Sunday 6 November.

The Selwyn Aquatic Centre will close at 4pm on Saturday 5

November to allow for the fireworks set-up (and associated road

closure of Broadlands Drive). If the fireworks is postponed until

Sunday 6 November, the centre will also close at 4pm on 6

November.

The Motukarara Fireworks display is being held at the Waihora

Domain from 5.30pm. The evening includes live music, rides, food,

and fireworks. Entry is $5 per person, or $20 per car (cash only).

If you are planning to use fireworks at home please be careful to

keep them away from hedges, shrubs, or long grass. Volunteer Fire

Brigades are normally very busy around Guy Fawkes, so please

follow the safety precautions below to avoid starting a fire:

· Don’t light fireworks in hot or windy conditions

· Follow handling instructions. If a firework fails to ignite, don’t

relight it as it may injure you

· Only ignite fireworks in open spaces, away from buildings and

anything flammable

· Have a supply of water nearby, like a hose or bucket

· Don’t drink and use fireworks, and keep children a safe distance

away

· Keep animals safe: household pets may be frightened by the

noise. Horses and cows may be spooked and should be secured

· Be courteous: let your neighbours know if you are planning to

use fireworks; and don’t let off fireworks at unreasonable times

Sky Lanterns, also known as Chinese Lanterns, are a significant

risk if they are allowed to fly away. You should only use these

lanterns if they are secured to prevent them floating away. Call 111

to report any fires.

Meet your Councillor –

Mark Alexander

Mark is one of four Councillors in the Selwyn Central ward, which

covers Rolleston, West Melton and surrounding areas. He can be

contacted on 027 526 6388 or at mark.alexander@selwyn.govt.nz.

What is your background?

My wife and I moved into Selwyn 21 years ago. I became a

committee member then secretary of the Rolleston Residents

Association. I then joined the Selwyn Central Community Board

which led my election to the Selwyn District Council.

What do you like about the area you represent?

Selwyn has great communities that have welcomed new residents

while retaining their friendly welcoming community spirit.

Our growth offers the opportunity to make a real difference. There

are few places in New Zealand where residents can shape the future

look and feel of their community, their townships and their districts.

Growth enables us to build new facilities to meet the needs of

our growing communities. Seeing new facilities well used by our

residents and visitors is its own reward.

What do you hope to achieve

while on the Council?

My vision for Selwyn is places

that we and future generations

will be proud of. A caring, safe,

community with a diverse range of

housing, with a range of facilities,

indoor and outdoor, for active

and passive activities that are

accessible and useable by all

ages and abilities. A safe vibrant

accessible prosperous caring

community that we will be proud to

be part of. I am working to see my

vision realised.

Ceramic artist makes awards finals

A LEESTON ceramic artist has

earned a sought-after finalist

place in the national Portage

Ceramic Awards.

Yi-Ming Lin was born in

Taiwan, immigrated to New

Zealand in 1994 and studied for

a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Otago

Polytechnic.

He said he felt lucky and

happy that his ‘Flowery Teapot

Set’ work had been selected as a

finalist.

“The teapot is built in stages,

starting as a pot and ending up

as a pot made of flowers so each

flower can show its own life,” Mr

Lin said.

“The contrast between rock

and flowers, brown and blue,

organic looking outside and

smooth inside can showcase the

variety in the work.”

He is one of 52 finalists selected

from 200 entries from around

the country.

The winner of the Premier

Portage Ceramic Award,

which carries a prize of

$15,000, will be announced at

a ceremony held at Te Uru on

November 10.

The winner of a scholarship

award at the Peters Valley

School of Craft in New Jersey,

United States, and up to three

merit awards totalling $3000

will also be announced at the

ceremony.

This year’s judge,

internationally-recognised

Australian ceramicist and

teacher Janet DeBoos, said she

was impressed with the skill and

dedication to craft among the

finalists.

The finalist’s works will be

exhibited at Te Uru in Titirangi

from November 11 to February

5.

And in case anyone is

wondering – Mr Lin’s teapot set

is not intended to actually be

used for tea service.

Kaftan returns

for summer

• By Dan Ahwa

FOR THOSE sitting on the fence

over the kaftan, several designers

have picked it up and run with it for

summer, delivering versatile styles.

Beautiful linens and crisp cotton

kaftans provide a fresh take on

volume for summer, appropriate

for not only the beach but, when

thrown over a pair of jeans and

sandals, the perfect blueprint for

easy, laissez-faire dressing.

The play on proportion extends

to the multitude of oversized shirt

dresses, slouchy trans-seasonal

knitwear and billowing palazzostyle

pants. An oversized light knit

dress, for example, is transformed

from cosy to terrific with the addition

of slingback heels and a pair

of statement earrings for formal

occasions.

Other accessories that enhance

voluminous separates include Miss

Crabb’s irreverent shoe collaboration

with Mi Piaci, arriving in stores

in the next few weeks, including a

pink patent leather peep-toe mule

(also available in red) – an easy way

to balance out the bulk and add

a sense of occasion to otherwise

casual pieces.

SUMMER CHIC: Sit pretty in

this Knuefermann dress, Royal

Republiq loafers and Juliette

Hogan sunglasses.

Lincoln model off

• By Annabelle Dick

NEW YORK Fashion Week

is one of the most prestigious

fashion events in the world,

showcasing high-profile

designers and exclusive

models – and now Lincoln’s

Jaime Spencer will get to walk

amongst them.

Miss Spencer, 19, is one of

six New Zealand and Australian

models who have been

hand-picked through the

Ozlink fashion programme to

walk in several NYFW shows

in February.

“We’re walking for international

designers with

international models and it’s

such a massive opportunity,”

she said.

“I don’t even know how to

describe it – it’s still sinking in

a wee bit. I still cry every time

I speak about it.”

Miss Spencer will spend 10

days in New York taking part

in the major international

Amit Singh Chauhan show,

two boutique shows and two

realway shows.

She will also partake in a

city and studio photo shoot

with a professional fashion

photographer.

“Having this work in my

portfolio will look really good.

This could literally kick start

a whole career and that’s the

best part about it,” she said.

Miss Spencer has been

modelling for three years after

trying a modelling course

with Portfolio.

Now with NZ Models &

Talent, she credits owner Kelly

Morrison with helping her get

the NYFW opportunity.

Standing at the shorter end

of the modelling spectrum at

1.73m, she said her height has

been an issue.

“I’m classed as a petite model,

but I’ll still get the chance

to strut my stuff and show

them what I’m worth and that

I can do this,” she said.

Miss Spencer is studying

towards a Bachelor of Criminal

Justice at Canterbury

University.

The Lincoln local is a sporty,

rural girl who admits she

didn’t see herself getting this

far.

“It’s quite funny – a small

country girl getting such a big

opportunity,” she said.

She hopes to get scouted

while overseas and combine

her love of modelling with a

career in criminal justice.

“Modelling has always been

that dream that every girl has

had but never really follows

through on. I wouldn’t mind

being the next Gigi Hadid

with a criminal law degree,”

she said.

There’s still some work to

do to get to the United States

as she needs sponsorship for

the expensive trip. Get in

Time to get race-day-ready

Cup Week is nearly upon us once more and it is time to get

your race outfit sorted. As always it’s all about the dress

but there are always other options available such as

jumpsuits and skirts and tops too.

Vibrant colour is always very popular at the races and

there are plenty of pretty colourful dresses in

store right now. Black and white is always striking,

is timeless and never fails to look stylish in the races setting. Bright

accessories can add the pop of colour if desired.

Any outfit is always finished off with the choice of

accessories which create the individual look and

give the well groomed appearance .Tie in your

accessories but don’t wear all the same colour

or you will appear too matchy-matchy. if your

bag and shoes are the same, for example,

wear a different co-ordinating colour in the

fascinator.

We have showcased the stunning Augustine

Juliet maxi dress which looks beautiful in the

pretty floral fabric and has a sleeve so no

jacket is necessary. ($209)

Also showcased from Augustine is the stella

Treasure dress in stunning sequins ($199) We

have added a simple navy fascinator so as not

to overpower the sequin fabrication.

Also in stunning floral is the silique red and

black applique rose dress ($365) We have

accessorized this dress with a simple black

fascinator to keep the emphasis on the dress.

The ivyblu Victoria dress ($229) is a beautiful

flattering shape which emphasises the waist so

especially suits pear shapes. The red fascinator

and bag bring out the red floral of the fabric.

Another stunning dress by silique is

pictured here in sapphire blue lace

($270). This style flatters most shapes

and has a little capped sleeve which

appeals to many.

All of the styles pictured are available right

now at Viva La moda. We also sell footwear,

fascinators, bags, jewellery, hosiery and more so are your

one stop shop for race wear this season.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

OFFICIAL OPENING: The official opening of The Hub Hornby’s new food court was held last Thursday. The Hub Hornby board chairman Michael Keyse cuts the

ribbon with centre manager Jason Marsden.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN ​

Hub celebrates with $75m refurbishment

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A CELEBRATION was held

last Thursday to mark 40 years

since The Hub Hornby was first

established in 1976.

As well as celebrating 40 years,

a red ribbon was cut to officially

mark the completion and opening

of the mall’s food court.

The food court features wellknown

restaurants and cafes

including Pita Pit, Ichiban, Roast

Republic, Cheeky Sparrow, Tank

Juice, Shamiana and Hungry

Wok.

The $75 million refurbishment

saw the centre grow from 1200 to

6000 sq m.

The Hub Hornby centre manager

Jason Marsden said it was

quite a milestone for the centre

across a number of areas.

He said leading up to the official

opening, the food court had

been popular with a nice design

for seating.

“Depending on how people

use the centre – from big round

tables for families to sit around,

to lean-on bars and high stalls

for people grabbing a quick bit

of lunch before they disappear,”

he said.

Mr Marsden said the stage

completes the whole picture as

far as people being able to flow

around the entire centre.

Last Thursday was also the

beginning of the mall’s late night

Thursdays where it traded from

9am-9pm for the first time.

Mr Marsden said Thursday

was a big night for retail in New

Zealand

The final stage of the refurbishment

will be the completion

of the northern entrance way

which is set to be finished by the

end of November.

Hororata Highland Games

promises a unique experience

The Hororata Highland Games is a

Scottish Festival with a Kiwi twist. While

the colourful and unique competitions are

the centre of the event, surrounding these

is a huge festival which is an attraction in

itself.

“This year we have introduced the

Duncan Cotterill Stage which will see

some great acts like the Southern Celtic

Fiddle Orchestra and Ma Bell and The

Celtic Connection entertain. The SCA

Medieval actors will be back with their

mock battles and craft demonstrations,”

explained Stalls Convenor, Dee Innes.

The Taste of Scotland is a wonderful

experience with food, wine,

Scottish wares, tartan and, of course,

Haggis to enjoy. In Clan Lane the

Canterbury Scottish Heritage Council

hosts 18 Clans who enjoy talking to

people about their lineage and providing

Scottish entertainment with Willie

MacArthur performing throughout the

day.

“This year the Hororata Whisky has

three new labels which will be launched

at the Games. Last year’s whisky sold out

so make sure you find the Whisky Galore

stand early. The Hororata Community

Trust is also introducing new Hororata

Tartan Cushions which will be available

at a special introductory price in Taste of

Scotland.

The legendary Hororata Pie will be

back as well as an amazing selection of

local and international food stalls ranging

from traditional festival food to different

healthy options, making choosing what to

have the hardest part about lunch.”

With over 100 stalls at the event there

is a huge array of sites offering everything

from wooden furniture, clothing, toys,

jewellery, produce, gifts, homeware and

much more. The Star Media Company

will have a stall with some great activities

as well as the chance for people to have

fun in their photobooth, with one of the

photos to be selected for the front page of

the next edition of the Selwyn Times.

“Be prepared for a full day out when

you come to the Hororata Highland

Games and remember you don’t have to

be Scottish to enjoy the day,” concluded

Dee.

The Hororata Highland Games is on

the 5th of November at the Hororata

Domain. Gates open at 9am and the event

concludes at 4pm with the Mass Bands

Gardening

The start of a blooming garden

THE JOY of spring is that

there are plenty of jobs to do

in the garden, especially now

the soil is warming up.

Towards the end of October,

early season varieties of

strawberries will begin to

ripen. Check plants regularly

for signs of grey mould

(botrytis), and remove any

affected leaves and fruit.

Add pea straw, hay or clean

bark mulch around the plants

to provide a clean ‘nest’ for

developing strawberries.

Raspberries, boysenberries,

loganberries and blackberries

should be growing at a very

fast rate as we move through

the month. Train canes on a

wall or a wire framework. It

may be necessary to remove

some surplus canes where

growth is exceptional. Mulch

with compost to suppress

weeds and conserve soil

moisture, and fruit and berry

fertiliser.

Lawns are now in very

active growth and require

regular mowing. Fertilise

with lawn fertiliser and repeat

every four to six weeks. This is

the last month for ‘easy’ laying

of a new lawn or for patching

and existing lawn.

It’s a great time to plant

up your container gardens

with ornamental annuals,

perennials or herbs, and even

small green salad

veges.

Always start with fresh

container mix and ensure the

containers are well drained.

Summer annuals that thrive

in containers include dwarf

cosmos, marigolds, petunia,

portulacas, salvias and

zinnias.

If you are establishing a new

herb garden or restoring an

existing one, try and position

the herb garden close to the

kitchen so it’s easy to access.

Ideally, herbs prefer a sunny,

well-drained position. You

may need to plant more of the

herbs you frequently use for

example basil, chives, parsley.

Roses will now start coming

into their own.

The first blooms are the

best display of the year

before the dreaded blackspot

and rust appear. Fertilise

them every four to six weeks

with rose fertiliser as this

enhances regular and ‘strong’

flowering.

Mulch with compost to

help retain soil moisture and

‘dead head’ (the removal

of old flowers) regularly to

help promote continuous

flowering.

Weeds will be popping up more frequently now, so make sure that you remove them as soon as you can.

Weeds compete with your plants for space, water and nutrients, therefore your plants won’t do as well

if they have weeds all around them. Spend some time removing all the weeds, then add some Organic

Compost in to the soil. This will help to provide some much needed organic matter, as well as aid in water

retention and weed suppression. Keep on top of watering now before the weather heats up too much and

the rainfall decreases significantly.

Applying bark to your garden not only makes the area look great, but it has a lot of benefits as well. It will

help to protect your plant’s roots from weather extremes, it will help retain moisture in the soil – giving your

plants a better supply to draw from during the summer, and will help to reduce weeds popping up. Intelligro

Vigilance needed to avoid

debilitating sheep disease

The Lincoln scientist who developed a standard

New Zealand industry test for the debilitating

sheep disease microphthalmia is reminding

farmers to be vigilant.

“We now see a few commercial farmers

with the disease on their properties because

they have used untested or non-accredited

rams,” Lincoln University Professor Jon

Hickford says.

His advice: “Only buy rams from

accredited breeders.”

It is thought the inherited disease was

introduced with the first shipment of Texel

sheep to New Zealand over 25 years ago. If

both parents are carriers (have a single copy

of the mutation each), then there is a one in

four chance that the offspring will be born

either blind, or with no eyes.

The Texel breed has been used widely to

increase meat yield.

The Registered NZ Texel Breeders

organisation approached Professor Hickford

to develop a robust test for microphthalmia,

which is now the standard for the industry

in New Zealand.

In 2011 the breeders group also started a

microphthalmia accreditation programme.

It allows for whole stud flock testing at

significant discount on the test cost, so

individual breeders can be assured they

have no carriers of the disease in their flock.

Its aim is to give assurance to the

commercial ram-buying industry that

Registered NZ Texel Breeders who are

accredited, do not have the disease in their

flock.

Professor Hickford believes the scheme

has made a large difference to the industry.

He feels there is under-reporting of the

disease as many farmers don’t know what it

is, and often it is at such a low incidence that

farmers don’t follow it up.

His recommendation is that if you are

using Texel or Texel-cross genetics you

should be asking your breeder what they

have done to make sure they are not selling

carrier animals.

His recommendation is that if

you are using Texel or Texelcross

genetics you should be

asking your breeder what they

have done to make sure they

are not selling carrier animals.

Shelterbelts offer benefits to

farmers and the environment

Lincoln University student,

Johannes Welsch

A Lincoln University student’s PhD work

offers new insight into on-farm carbon

sequestration and the ecological benefits

of shelterbelts, which he says may be part

of the puzzle to sustainable management

of agricultural environments and improved

environmental credentials.

Johannes Welsch says shelter belts are

a farm-friendly way to improve carbon

sequestration outcomes in the agricultural

sector, and may be one answer to

growing consumer concern around the

environmental footprint of farming and

the need for New Zealand farms to adapt to

climate change.

“The general population, both in New

Zealand and in key overseas markets,

are becoming more concerned about

where their food comes from and the

environmental impact of its production.

The agricultural sector should be motivated

to get out in front of a new wave of

opportunity fuelled by consumer concern,

with the aim of cornering that high end of

the market.”

Carbon sequestration could be a key part

of this approach, he says.

As Canterbury becomes warmer, drier

and windier, with more frequent droughts

and storms, increased efficiency of water

use and farming practices will be necessary

to maintain and increase production. Wind

is one of the few elements that farmers can

control with the use of windbreaks and

shelterbelts. Ironically, Johannes says, over

the past few decades many shelterbelts

have been removed to facilitate irrigation

equipment and more intensive land use.

“A case study on shelterbelt loss in central

Canterbury revealed a reduction of 46 per

cent between 1984 and 2004 as a result of

dairy conversions. It is mind- boggling

how many huge areas have become green

pasture deserts.”

He began to question what else is lost with

these removals and whether opportunities

to sequester carbon dioxide are being

sacrificed.

Johannes visited 34 sheep, beef, dairy and

arable farms in the Canterbury region, from

Banks Peninsula to the foothills of the Alps,

to investigate their use of shelterbelts and

the benefits of these, including increased

biodiversity, soil ecology and shade and

shelter for stock. Shelterbelts have also been

shown to raise agricultural productivity.

“Shelterbelt species selection with

strategic placement and clear objectives

can have numerous potential benefits to

farm productivity and profitability. It is

only a matter of time before this happens,”

Johannes says.

“There is growing pressure on farmers to

do their bit and government policies may

change. Farmers should look at the ‘free’

benefits they will gain across the whole farm.

Shelterbelts are not a short-term panacea,

but a mid- to long-term proposition that

requires a flexible approach and sitespecific

solutions. They contribute to equity

for future generations, position farmers for

a ‘low carbon’ future and enable adaption to

a changing climate.”

Concern has been raised over the largescale

use of potentially fertile agricultural

land for permanent forest carbon sinks, but

Johannes emphasises that most shelterbelts

are planted along, boundaries, slopes or

gullies, roadsides and on marginal land.

“The planting of these areas with

shelterbelts benefits not only the farmer but

New Zealand as a whole.”

With only one per cent of native vegetation

remaining on the Canterbury plains, and

native species averaging similar amounts

of carbon per hectare to exotic species, he

recommends planting a mixture of native

and exotic species to give optimal benefits

of shelter, permeability, low maintenance,

wildlife habitat, resistance to drought, frost

and snow, is aesthetically pleasing and

increases property values.

VW Tiguan takes up the SUV challenge

• By Ross Kiddie

FOR THOSE who have long

desired a Volkswagen Touareg

sport utility vehicle but have

found the cost a little prohibitive

and its size daunting, Volkswagen

still have an affordable SUV in

the form of its Tiguan.

A completely new Tiguan

has just landed and, although it

doesn’t measure up to Touareg

in any shape or form, it is still

a very desirable mid-size SUV

which rides and drives very much

like sedans and hatchbacks from

Volkwagen’s car line.

The Tiguan, alongside Ford’s

Kuga, has long been my favourite

SUV of this size, and the new

generation model does little to

alter my opinion of it. Sure, it gets

a lot more kit and the rounded

shape is even more appealing, but

it still carries the fundamentals

which have made it a popular car

here and globally.

The newcomer lands in three

variants – there’s the entrylevel

1.4-litre TSi at $41,990

and $47,990, depending on

specification; there’s a 2-litre

TSi at $57,990 and $66,990,

interestingly, it gets the highperformance

162kW engine from

the Golf GTi; and in the test car’s

case the Tiguan lists at $59,990, it

gets a 2-litre turbocharged diesel

engine.

VOLKSWAGEN TIGUAN: Flowing, rounded lines.

As much as I would find the

2-litre TSi interesting, I think

the diesel would be the variant

for me, this is a driveline that

Volkswagen do very well, and

somehow the Tiguan lends itself

to diesel power, it is powerful yet

also thrifty.

In terms of figures, the 1968cc

diesel pumps out a healthy 110kw

at the top end (3500-4000rpm),

while it is also rated with a solid

340Nm of torque, available all

of the way from 1750rpm to

3000rpm.

Drive is sent through a sevenspeed

direct shift automatic

gearbox. There are only two pedals

so it should be treated like a

normal auto. The benefits are the

quick shifts, and with the number

of ratios gear changes are barely

detectable and there’s never a

point where you think the wrong

gear is selected.

I like the way the engine works

in conjunction with the gearbox,

it is happy to operate at low revolutions,

holding a tall gear during

slow speed travel and that promotes

fuel efficiency.

Of course, the gearbox will

quickly change down if immediate

acceleration is required,

the twin clutch system of DSG

promotes that, but the entire

mechanical operation is designed

so that fuel wastage is eliminated.

Volkswagen claims a 5.6-litre

per 100km (50mpg) combined

cycle average for the diesel unit.

At 100km/h on the highway the

engine is turning over at just

1650rpm registering an amazing

4.7l/100km (60mpg) figure.

After a long drive and some use

on suburban streets the Tiguan’s

trip computer was showing a

7l/100km (40mpg) figure. By my

reckoning these are good results.

The Tiguan is a purposeful

family wagon. It has large car

comfort packaged into a mid-size

vehicle which drives and rides

with comfort, along with presenting

the driver with an informative

driving sensation.

In all forms the Tiguan is fitted

with Volkswagen’s 4Motion

driveline. The Tiguan can’t be

classed as an off-roader, there

aren’t many SUVs which are, but

it is capable in the loose and with

200mm of ground clearance it

would accept a hilly incline or

two. It also has drive modes suitable

for low grip conditions.

I took the test car on a shingle

track near Hororata. Grip is plentiful

while the fully independent

suspension absorbs sudden wheel

travel so that the in-cabin ride is

protected.

On the seal, the Tiguan glides

through the air with quiet ease

and is capable when presented

with a quick corner or two. The

Tiguan is very car-like, there’s no

presence of height and certainly

bulk, it feels lithe, nimble and

spirited.

The Tiguan rides on high quality

Pirelli Scorpion tyres (235/50 x

19in) and even though they don’t

• Price – VW Tiguan TDi,

$59,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4486mm; width, 2099mm;

height, 1643mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1968cc, 110kW, 340Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9.3sec

• Fuel usage – 5.6l/100km

have an aggressive pattern, they

are capable in the loose and are

certainly up to a cornering challenge.

They don’t moan under

pressure and combine to give the

driver positive information as to

what is happening in relation to

the road surface.

The new Tiguan carries all of

Volkswagen’s latest technology,

especially for safety where it features

an autonomous emergency

braking system. It stops short of

taking autonomous driving any

further, but it’s my guess given

the technology already in production

throughout the wider

Volkswagen/Audi enterprise, it

won’t be long before it is advanced

further.

In the interim, the Tiguan is

a tidy package. It is a versatile,

innovative all-rounder, and if

I was a mid-size SUV buyer it

would be top of my list.

Cottage

Two Properties - One Address

Located in one of Rolleston’s finest developments this beautifully appointed 260m2 family

home with an 82m2 two bedroom cottage is positioned on a 2658 m2 landscaped section,

and is perfect for extended families/frequent guests/parents and children.

MAIN HOME - A home that the whole family will love! Built in 2008 (approx.) with 4 great

sized bedrooms, plus a home office, this home is packed to the rim with extras! The open plan

living/ dining and kitchen area provides plenty of room for the whole family to spread out.

The kitchen showcases a gorgeous Silestone Quartz benchtop along with ample storage.

Entertaining will be a breeze, with sliders coming off the living area to an impressive patio

area bordered by glass balustrades – a perfect setting for alfresco dining! Add to this the

large formal lounge, 3 car garaging, separate laundry with built in storage room, ducted

heat pump system (on 2 units), surround sound throughout, automated irrigation, undertile

heating, central vacuum system, security system… phew!! And so much more!!!!

COTTAGE- Built in 2013, keeping in with the same appeal of the main family home, this cottage

is absolutely gorgeous and beautifully designed, with a mono-pitch roof, sunny patio area,

large master bedroom and single bedroom. The living area has a heat pump, and is all open plan

with a slider off to a patio area or a door to the back of the cottage to a deck area. The cottage

also has its own laundry, surround sound and a gas connection to the side of the house to

hook up your BBQ - great for summer entertaining! This is a

classic example of practicality and quality coming together

to create a property that can be described as unique. Come

along and see what you think - this property offers so many

options and I am sure there will be one to work for you!

18 Years - But What A Journey!

This mouth watering proposition is barely recognisable from its humble origins. Passionate owners

have significantly extended the replica style homestead to facilitate entertaining including a

delightful cottage with its own access. Sheds are substantial and will provide opportunity for those

of you with commercial purpose and intent. Ten hectares blessed with brilliant shelter, devoted

principally to oats and olives and with water rights to 2035, the skope is endless! A rural retreat but

with amenities in its sights. An abundance of living space will delight. Many happy occasions have

been enjoyed here, but memory banks are full - time to move on. So many bangs for the buck! This

property is for sale + GST (if any).

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Buying your first home

Policy changes to the KiwiSaver HomeStart Grant have led to many young people

looking to settle in Selwyn where cheaper land makes owning a new home achievable.

While many lenders may require a 20%

deposit when purchasing a home, a 10%

deposit is all that is needed under the

Welcome Home Loan Scheme.

This deposit may comprise savings,

cashed in KiwiSaver funds and a

HomeStart grant which is available if a

person has paid into KiwiSaver for at least

three years.

There are two grants available under

the HomeStart scheme. If purchasing an

existing home, the grant is between $1,000

and $5,000 for each year a person has paid

into KiwiSaver, while this figure doubles

if purchasing a new home. It means that

two partners who have paid into KiwiSaver

for five years will have a combined grant

of $10,000 for an existing property and

$20,000 for new.

This explains why so many first home

buyers are looking to purchase new

though they must be over 18 years, have

a combined gross income of less than

$130,000 (or for one person less than

$85,000) and commit to living in the

home for a minimum of six months after

settlement.

Previous home buyers could qualify for

a HomeStart Grant if they no longer own

a home and their financial situation has

deteriorated due to say a relationship break

up, bringing their realisable assets to no

more than $100,000 (for Canterbury).

First home buyers should also research

what is on offer in the market as not all

smaller, compact house and land packages

are equal. Some building companies have

only a small range of plans which might

not appeal to the buyer or suit their needs.

First home buyers also need to be wary

about add-on costs. Extras like fencing,

landscaping, exterior hard surfaces and

changes to the design specifications, which

can increase building costs putting the

home out of the buyer’s reach. The quality

of fixtures, fittings, appliances and floor

area can also vary.

In a housing subdivision, there is

also likely to be a covenant requiring

landscaping to be completed within a

certain timeframe which might be before

moving in or within six months.

Some building companies, like

Generation Homes, have addressed these

issues, establishing a final build price while

offering a well-designed affordable home

that will fit within the price range of a

first home buyer and also provide quality

fixtures and fittings. A stone benchtop,

recognised brand appliances, heat pump

and complete landscaping from the

concrete driveway to the fences, lawn and

shrubs, letterbox, clothesline and irrigation

system are all part of the package.

“We recognised the need for our first

home clients to have surety and have

developed a package that means they can

afford a new home that they will be happy

in,” says Evan Beker who along with his

wife, Nadja are the joint venture partners of

Generation Homes Christchurch.

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.

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 buzz words 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.

Selwyn Property SEPTEMBER 20

Selling your property?

First impressions count,

get rid of the clutter.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that getting rid of clutter is one of the keys to selling property

fast and at a good price. Good storage systems can look cool in their own right, and help organise your clutter.

Good storage ideas are abundant and

all manner of products are available

to make homes more minimalistic.

While it’s nice to buy your storage from

designer homewares stores, the likes

of The Warehouse and Kmart sell many

simple products for masking clutter.

Fabric storage cubes are a great start

for disguising the clutter. They fit neatly

into shelves and wardrobes and thanks

to competition from the big department

stores, can cost $10 or less each. You’ll

also find wicker, felt, cotton, woven and

metal baskets for a song.

Another clever idea, is to

buy a cheap set of melamine

shelves for use in your

wardrobe. A set of shelves

does much the same job as

an expensive wardrobe fit

out. You can move the shelf

heights to accommodate

shoes and boots. It looks

good, but costs little.

Another wardrobe

organisation is a Wardrobe

Starter Kit from Hardware

stores. While you’re there,

check out bicycle storage hooks as well.

As well as being practical, storage

products can make a design statement.

The important thing is to be consistent.

don’t, for example, buy storage cubes

in different colours. If you’re looking for

really clever home storage ideas take

a tip from the tiny home movement.

Catherine Foster who wrote Small House

Living, downsized her life to under 90sqm

and has interviewed Kiwis who live in

architecturally designed homes of that

size or smaller.

Each and every house in

Foster’s book uses storage

effectively to tame their

belongings. Some have done

it on the smell of an oily rag,

sometimes buying pre-cut heavy

duty plywood that only has to be screwed

together, she says.

Garages and lofts are house vendors’

friends. The garage is one of the few

places in the house that buyers won’t

be put off by a little extra stuff, but the

more that can be hidden away in stacked

crates the better. Consider using flat pack

cupboards that can be taken with you.

“The most effective way of using these is

to find a wall where the whole area can be

covered floor to ceiling,”

“Simple carpentry like this is dIY level

if you’re handy, or get a handyman in for

a few hours, but make sure it is excluded

from the list of chattels on the sale

agreement.”

Loft spaces are often wasted space

in Kiwi homes. A relatively cheap way to

open up the space is to install a loft ladder.

You will be amazed at what people use

the additional storage space for, once

they’ve installed it.

Cheap clever storage ideas aren’t just

limited to the interior of the house, garage

and loft. The Warehouse, Mitre 10 & other

hardware stores sell garden storage to

hide away things usually left outside.

Foldable garden storage boxes that cost

from around $99 can be used to store

garden tools, outdoor cushions and pool

paraphernalia. The next step up is a cheap

garden shed for around $200 upwards

from Mitre 10, Bunnings Warehouse and

other stores.

Finally, if you’re looking for more

inspiration Google “storage ideas”, search

the same on Pinterest, or check out books

on the subject from your local library. You’ll

be amazed at how many everyday items

can be repurposed for storage at the same

time as adding design excellence to your

home.
