ABOUT 75 people were evacuated

from the settlements of Rakaia Huts

and Taumutu/Fisherman’s Point after

a tsunami warning was issued – but

about half chose to stay.

The tsunami warning and evacuation

order were issued at about 1am

yesterday after a magnitude 7.5

earthquake near Hanmer Springs and

a series of strong aftershocks.

A civil defence emergency centre

was established at Southbridge Hall,

with up to 60 people present overnight.

Rakaia Huts resident Pam Williamson

was one of those evacuated to the

hall after a call from a civil defence


“I called as many people as I could

to let them know that evacuation was

on the agenda and I would say about

50 per cent [of people] took advantage

of going down to the Southbridge

Hall,” Mrs Williamson said.

She wasn’t frightened about the

tsunami, more annoyed at having to

leave her cosy bed and warm fire.

“But it’s too late to leave when you

see the wave coming isn’t it, you can’t

outrun them.”

About half of residents had chosen

to leave and half had stayed behind

but the evacuation had been orderly

and without panic.

However, after returning home in

the morning she had been surprised

to come across two young men intent

on taking a boat out into the water.

Yesterday, authorities were still

warning people to stay off beaches

and out of the water due to the risk of

unpredictable strong currents.

“I said just consider yourself told

that it’s not okay and left it at that,”

Mrs Williamson said.

“It was absolute stupidity but their

call, I guess.”

Mrs Williamson said she stayed at

the Southbridge Hall between 1.30am

and 7am when residents were told

they could return home.

People at the hall had been upbeat

about the situation, she said.

“I think everybody there felt they

had made the right decision.”

There were no reports of any

significant damage in Selwyn to

infrastructure, including roads,

bridges and water supplies, as a result

of the earthquake but crews were still

inspecting the roading network.

mascot Stan at the Canterbury A&P Show in Christchurch on Wednesday. They

were among many children from Selwyn and around Canterbury who enjoyed

visiting the annual show during the week.

HOW MUCH tar seal and how

much time does it take to tidy up

a relatively small stretch of road?

Not much on either count, I

would have thought.

But if you live on the south

side of West Belt in Lincoln it

has taken years – and it could

be many more to come – before

the council gets around to doing

anything about it, as we highlight

on page 3 today.

Residents on West Belt have

every reason to be hacked off. It’s

a bumpy ride getting into your

driveway, and when it rains the

potholes fill with water and get


Yet just down the road the

council tar sealed and put in angled

parking on West Belt when

The Laboratory opened.

Wouldn’t it have been

commonsense to do the rest of

the street? – Barry Clarke

In Brief

BUMPY RIDE: There are no plans to repair this unsealed stretch of West Belt until 2018 at the earliest.

Unsealed road irritates residents

• By Tom Doudney


of maintenance has often been

a complaint of rural residents

but now a street in the heart of

Selwyn’s second biggest town is

causing frustration.

A section of West Belt, in Lincoln,

is unsealed on one side for

roughly two thirds of its length,

north of the Gerald St intersection

– and it will remain so until

2018 at the earliest.

The other third of the street

was sealed about a year ago

when construction of the Laboratory

restaurant and bar was


Resident Junior Young said the

unsealed shingle section had big

potholes all the way along. He

has complained to the district

council on two occasions over

the last three years and was disappointed

that it had not been


“When you go out you’ve got

to pick your spot so you don’t

bounce in the humps and you

get dust here all the time,” he


“We’re the only road in Lincoln

that has got shingle.”

District council asset engineer

transportation Mark Chamberlain

said sealing the unsealed

portion of the road would

be considered as part of the

estimated $36.6 million worth

of roading and infrastructure

upgrades associated with the

Lincoln Town Centre Plan.

However, this work would not

be until 2018 at the earliest, as

it would be budgeted for in the

2018-2028 Long Term Plan.

Mr Young said he had lived on

the street for about eight years

and had taken to filling up the

potholes himself at times.

He said the shingle edge of the

road was often used by young

people who lived in the area to

pull handbrake slides and that

sort of thing.

Mr Chamberlain said there

had been no funding allocated to

seal the unsealed portion of the

road up until this point, as other

roading projects had been given

higher priority and the district

council had been aware that


roading requirements for the

town were due to be considered

as part of the Lincoln Town

Centre Plan.

However, maintenance work

had been done, including filling

in holes and repairing the edge

of the seal.

“This routine maintenance

will continue,” he said.

Mr Young said the

maintenance the district

council had done to date had

only provided short term fixes

after which the potholes had

Two fields at Lincoln Domain have

been fenced off until mid-January

while a new $141,000 irrigation

system is installed. The domain’s

rear fields will remain open. The

new system will enable more

efficient watering by allowing it to

occur at night throughout the year

when there is less evaporation,

and enable water to be better

distributed. It will also reduce the

cost and staff time involved with

irrigation as the system will no

longer need to be manually set.


Selwyn residents may have noticed

more traffic counts being carried

out on the roads lately. The district

council wants to record what traffic

volumes were like prior to the

construction of the Christchurch

Southern Motorway extension.

With construction under way,

there will be a number of temporary

detours that may change traffic

volumes, making a busy road

less busy and vice versa. Current

traffic counts will be compared to

traffic volumes after the motorway

is completed. They will inform

transportation models, which the

district council uses to predict

the location and amount of future



“I was in denial, pure and simple. My family were

bringing it up more often with a gentle nudging

to “do something about it.” My ability to hear

accurately was impacting on my whole life and for

what ever reason, I wasn’t convinced that hearing

aids would make much difference.

I am a parent, grandparent and teacher. Conversations

were becoming increasingly difficult. I compensated

and modified my interactions to cope

but I was being robbed on personal enjoyment, on

social occasions, family occasions, everyday life.

I had been to another bigger hearing clinic 3

years ago. I left without a solution to my hearing

problem because the interview and testing was

less about me and more about a company selling

a product. It was a mechanical process and I left

despondent. I was losing my hearing and that

is personal, I needed it dealt with in a personal


Recently I happen to have a couple of conversations

with friends and colleagues who had or were getting

hearing aids. Their feedback on how fabulous

hearing aids were was so positive. They mentioned

Brenna Sincock Hearing. Right people, right time,

right conversations and all of a sudden I was spurred

into action and had booked into see Brenna.

I am not sure that I can do justice in describing

Brenna’s approach. Brenna is infinitely professional,

kind and understanding. Brenna instantly put

me at ease with her friendly nature and lead me

through an interview that really exposed my heart

and motivation as to why I would want to rectify

this increasing inability to participate more fully

in my life! Brenna gave me time and patience. She

fitted hearing aids and I was overcome by the how

much more I could hear.

We have had follow up appointments since and

adjusted the aids. I know I have her support and

can call her with questions at the drop of a hat.

That personal connection, for me, is important for

dealing with something as important as hearing.

In the short time that I have had my hearing aids

they have re-enhanced my life in immeasurable

ways. At school, I no longer have to ask children

to repeat themselves, my colleagues will have

noticed the difference in me, it just such a relief.


Call 03 390 2332 today

My own family are elated, to make an understatement,

but also proud of me for having had the

courage making this decision.

Hearing is a precious gift. Thank you Brenna for

your gentle professional explanations and support.

I highly recommend Brenna Sincock and her

business to anyone who may feel they have any

hearing loss. Don’t leave it for seven years, like I

did!” - Sharen Holmes

Shows continue to succeed

It is great to see that these

shows are continuing to attract

so much support after

150 plus years.

I believe that the success

including a dedicated smartphone

app to help visitors get

the most out of the Canterbury


Meanwhile, local shows

here in Selwyn have picked

up on current themes such as


MasterChef-style cook-offs

and wearable arts competitions

to inspire new generations

to get involved.

Importantly though the

shows do remain true to their

origins in focusing on our rural

producers, whether that be

crop and feed growers, sheep,

cattle or dairy farmers, walnut

orchardists or wine-makers.

Our rural sector has certainly

diversified over the past

few decades, with a greater

focus on artisan products

and the growth of farmers’

markets, as many people have

become more interested in

finding out exactly where

their food has come from.

Recent shows that I have

attended, including the Ellesmere

Show, the Ashburton

Show and the Canterbury

Show, have all reflected this

diversity well. The shows are

an opportunity for rural communities

large and small to

get together and share ideas

and results and connect with

suppliers and customers alike.

A&P shows take a lot of

planning and organisation


A&P Show will be held on Saturday.

and without the hard work

of the show presidents and

organising committees these

events would not be possible.

Of course, A&P shows are

not the only significant events

happening around Selwyn

at this time of the year.

November 5 was a big day for

the region with the hugelysuccessful

Hororata Highland

Games once again an entertaining

day out for many. This

was followed by an evening of

public fireworks displays in

Rolleston and Motukarara.

Well done to all of those

involved in planning and

running these events, many of

whom are volunteers.

From church fairs to

council-run events and everything

in between, we are very

lucky here in Selwyn to have

such a range of opportunities

to make community connections

and family memories

throughout the year.

Cup Week mates

have a grouse time

A GROUP of former Hutt Valley

rugby teammates and good

friends travelled from across New

Zealand and Australia to stay at

Lincoln’s Famous Grouse Hotel

for Cup and Show Week.

The group was keeping alive a

tradition which started about 50

years ago as two separate annual

trips by players from the Hutt

Valley Marist and Petone rugby


About 30 years ago they combined

their trips into one and the

Famous Grouse Hotel has hosted

them for the last six years.

Group members now come

from as far apart as Australia,

Auckland and the Kapiti Coast,

as well as the Wellington area.

Organiser Brian Tebbutt, of

Upper Hutt, said he was one of

about “five or six” original members

of the travelling group who

still made the trip. There were

usually about 20 in the group

each year, including several, like

himself, aged in their 70s.

Mr Tebbutt, who used to play

rugby for Petone, said the group

had often stayed at Christchurch’s

Sandridge Motel in the past but

decided to make The Famous

Grouse their regular home away

from home when owners Craig

and Bridget Bradford sold the

former and bought the latter.

“One of the highlights of the

trip is the way that Bridget and

Craig and the people at the [Famous

Grouse] hotel look after us,”

he said.

Mr Tebbutt said this year’s trip

had been fantastic, even if the

bets they placed at Addington

Raceway and Riccarton Park

Racecourse had not been lucrative.

“A few guys had a good collect

but most of us left quite a bit of

North Island money down there

as we normally do,” he said.

of guys and the nicest blokes you

could ever run into,” he said.

Katrina Keenan

Musician has found a balance

Your Local Views

Former New Zealand cricketer and Motukarara resident

Katrina Keenan forms one half of musical duo Southfield,

with Dave McKenzie. They’ll be one of the opening acts

at the Selwyn Sounds concert in Lincoln in March. She

spoke to Tom Doudney about famous cricketing school

friends, developing the women’s game and what her

other job at Selwyn Sounds will be.


How did you get into cricket

when you were younger?

I played cricket at primary

school. I played cricket for the

boys at Cotswold Primary

School. My father Norm Withers

was very passionate about

cricket, so he was very involved

and spent a lot of time with me.

We probably practiced every


night at the drive to be fair. Then

I was sort of in a cricket circle or

environment – I went to intermediate

with Chris Cairns, and

Andy Caddick, who went on to

play for England, at high school.

I used to train and practice

with the boys teams and was

lucky enough to get a lot of

coaching opportunities at a


really young age. I remember

getting invited to a clinic with

spent a lot of time with me when

I was younger, he used to give up

his time to take me for bowling

sessions, so I was really lucky in

that regard.

When you were in primary

and high school, did many other

girls play cricket at that stage

or were you one of the few?

The schools that I was at had

a girls’ cricket team. I just loved

the game so much that I played

in the girls’ team but also trained

and practiced with the boys.

Were you training and practicing

with the boys because

you were so good?

I had a reasonably high skill

level I guess. The guys were

certainly happy for me to be

there and I think that was quite

significant in terms of me developing

better skills.

Andy Caddick strike you as

When did you get into singing

and performing music?

background. Dad played guitar

and he also was part of a duo

in his early 20s and he had

even recorded a few songs and

made a couple of little records.

I had wanted to sing for some

time really but I didn’t probably

have the confidence because I

was doing sport and when you

were crossing over into that arts

thing, it always seemed like there

were way more talented people

than you. In my 20s I revisited it,

auditioned for a few local bands

and started playing in pubs and

at weddings and corporate functions

and that sort of thing and

started writing and doing a little

bit of recording.

That took a bit of a backseat

to cricket, though?

Yeah, I was really involved in

sport. I played indoor cricket

over the winter for the New

Zealand team, although I

wasn’t in the outdoor team at

that point. I was also playing

hockey – I got to New Zealand

under-21 level with hockey, I was

a non-travelling reserve for the

World Cup. Music was always

something else I was interested

in, but couldn’t afford a huge

amount of time for.

Four Square supermarket

comes to West Melton

MORE THAN 150 years

after West Melton was

founded, its first modern

supermarket was opened

on Tuesday last week.

Four Square West Melton

was officially opened

by Mayor Sam Broughton.

Construction began in

February as part of the

shopping centre development

on Weedons Ross

Rd, opposite West Melton


Owners Brent and Leah

Little said the opening was

a historic day for both the

town and Four Square.

“I have fond memories

of visiting the Four Square

in Hokitika when I was a

boy,” Mr Little said.

“West Melton, meanwhile,

got its first grocery

store in 1872, eight

years after the town was

founded, before the store

was moved into the old

blacksmith’s shop in 1937.

“I’m proud to bring

21st century shopping to

West Melton – with no

horseshoes but plenty of

car parks.”

Out of 20 staff at the

supermarket, 16 have been

employed from West Melton

and the surrounding


“We’ve assembled a fantastic

team who are raring

to go,” Mr Little said.

“They know community

expectations are high but

I’m confident we’ll exceed

them next week and well

into the future.”

West Melton Residents’

Association chairman Jeff

Waters said it was good

to have the supermarket


“It’s great it has finally

come about,” Mr Waters


Mrs Little said the

supermarket’s modern

features included the latest

The supermarket has

about 800 sq m of retail

floor space.

Mr Little’s own retailing

history goes back 22 years

since he left school. He has

worked for New World

and Pak ’n’ Save and done

everything from packing

bags to slicing ham.

“Experience is key to

running supermarkets,

and I’m looking forward to

applying mine to our new

store and getting to know

the people of West Melton

and the surrounding

areas,” he said.

Fire training exercise

DARFIELD residents shouldn’t

(EBoT) and

staff have been

participating in a

number of events

to help foster a

positive school

community and


The first event

to be held was

a community

get together at

the Farringdon

playground where

EBoT members

and school families

were able to

participate in fun

activities including

a bouncy castle,

craft table, face

painting, and


The community

planting day at the

school, organised

and sponsored by

Southbase, gave

all participants a sense of ownership as

they all mucked in to get the landscape

looking more beautiful by planting

native plants around the school

buildings with help from Outerspace

Landscapes. The planting was followed

by a sausage sizzle and refreshments

as well as a walk

through the new

school to see

what the learning


will be like

when the first

pupils start next

year. Southbase

Construction even

added in a pleasant

surprise when it

gifted the school

colourful, modern

chairs for the hall

and gym.



Tracey Riley

says the


members have

been extremely

positive about

the new school


and the


formed at the

two events have

been a great first

step in developing productive working

relationships between the EBoT, staff

and families.

“There is a real excitement by

everyone in the community about

Lemonwood Grove School. What is

fantastic to see is that future learners

are excited about being the foundation

students. The staff members have been

extremely approachable and parents are

also feeling real ownership of the school

with much interest in the Board of

Trustees elections in May 2017.”

“We are all looking

forward to seeing those

foundation students

walk through the

gates next year and

to see the wonderful

learning that will happen in this new


Lemonwood School principal

Sean Bailey says he’s most excited

about developing learner-centred

relationships with the community.

“These relationships will mean we will

develop children who are problem

solvers, who work hard and are engaged

in the learning process. They will be

motivated to work both on their own

and collaboratively with other students.”

The school uniform is also an

important aspect in creating an identity

for students, says EBoT member

Rebecca Scott. “We are so excited about

our uniform. It is a totally unique

colour and we know the children are

going to love it and wear it with pride.”

Located in the Farringdon

subdivision, the formation of the new

school has involved a huge effort by the

EBoT which has worked closely with

Stephenson and Turner Architects,

Southbase Construction and

the Ministry of Education.

Set to open on January 30,

2017, the school will cater for

up to 450 students in years

1 to 8 with a stage two plan in

place to increase this number to

750. For more information visit

Road resealing

underway for summer

Council’s road maintenance contractor (HEB Construction Ltd) has begun resealing work on

the district’s roads. Resealing is undertaken during the warmer, drier weather conditions of the

spring, summer and early autumn. A list of road sections being resealed in 2016/17 is available

on the Council’s website, Resealing work will be undertaken on 99 different

sections of road with a total length of around 85 kilometres.

Approximately 5.5 kilometres of road rehabilitation work will also be undertaken over the spring

and summer. Three sections of road have been confirmed where this work will take place:

Deans Road (between Auchenflower Road and the Hawkins River), Bealey Road (west of the

Waianiwaniwa River) and Gerald Street (between Vernon Drive and Springs Road). The sections

on Deans Road and Bealey Road will have a granular overlay of the existing seal. The section on

Gerald Street will have the kerb and dish channel replaced, the old road pavement excavated, the

subgrade strengthened and a new road pavement constructed.

Since 2014, the Council has increased its roading maintenance budget to carry out more resealing

and road rehabilitation work as our roads become busier and carry more heavy vehicles.

Explore Selwyn: Rakaia Gorge Walk

This DOC track offers spectacular views of the gorge and can be

completed in a morning or afternoon. The track winds through

several forest and shrub areas before climbing the historic ferryman’s

track. After an hour’s walking you will reach one of several glacial and

river-carved terraces providing sweeping views with a breath taking

backdrop of Mt Hutt. The walk then dips down into a gully where the

abandoned Snowdon coal mines can be seen.

The track is often steep and has some big steps and rough terrain

so it is not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs. It travels through

farmland where dogs are not allowed. It begins at the Rakaia Gorge

Bridge and follows the river for about 5km before turning around

and returning along the same route.

Time/Distance: 3-4 hours,

about 10km total distance.

Difficulty: Medium

How to get there: Take state

Highway 72 Inland Scenic

Route. The walk begins by

the car park at the gorge

bridge. It’s a 45 minute drive

from Rolleston.

Meet your Councillor –

Debra Hasson

Debra is one of three Councillors in the Springs ward, which covers

Lincoln, Prebbleton, Springston, Tai Tapu and surrounding areas.

She can be contacted via phone on 027 435 5055 or by emailing

What do you hope to achieve while on the Council?

More recognition that environmental responsibility is a cost

that Council will have to absorb in its rates. I would like to

investigate district wide rating opportunities where environmental

improvements benefit all, but apply the "polluter pays principle"

to targeted groups. This principle is in place for community water

consumption but needs to be extended to water races and landdrainage

and in this case concentric rating may be the answer?

What do you like about the area you represent?

Our urban and rural environment

mix and the knowledge base

from our research facilities, many

who are volunteers enhancing

environmental understanding in

our community. Urban residents

live in close proximity to the rural

environment, while still being

within commuting distance to

Christchurch City.

How would you describe yourself?

Adventurous but diligent in my

thinking; not afraid to ask the

"hard questions." I tend to be a

person of principle.

Future options for Springston Hall

Springston residents are being asked to share their views on

options for the future of their town hall and community centre.

The Springston Community Centre suffered damage in the 2010-

11 earthquakes and although it has been repaired and remained in

use by community groups, it will require significant upgrading and

strengthening to meet building code requirements in the future.

The Hall Committee is working with the Council to plan for the

future. A number of options have been developed, ranging from no

upgrading through to retaining and strengthening the main hall, or

removing and replacing it with a new facility.

Two drop-in sessions are being held this week so that local

residents and facility users can find out more about the options and

give their feedback. Council staff will be there to discuss the project,

including the current status of the hall and buildings, work needed

to bring the facilities up to standard, costs of the different options

and how these might affect rates. You can find out more and share

your views at

The drop-in sessions will held at Springston Community Centre on:

· Friday 18 November from 5 – 7pm, and

· Saturday 19 November from 1pm – 3pm.

Test your sense of adventure at

Whether it is mountain

Christchurch Adventure

Park aims to offer

something for everyone.

Bridget Rutherford


FIVE YEARS ago, Canadian

leisure developer Select

Evolution was keen to build a

new adventure park.

It searched the United

Kingdom, Europe, and even

Queenstown and Auckland, to

no avail.

But in 2011, Christchurch

mountain biker Tim Prebble was

sitting on a chairlift next to a

woman at Whistler Blackcomb –

a mountain bike park in British


The woman was working at the

park as a coach.

But not only did she work

there, she was one of the brains

behind it – Select Evolution

chairwoman Fiona Sutton.

Mr Prebble suggested Select

should develop a similar adventure

park in Christchurch, but

she told him there was nowhere


But Mr Prebble knew just the

place – a 364ha forest block,

owned by McVicar Holdings Ltd

between Dyers Pass, Worsleys

and Summit Rds.

Just 17min from the city centre,

it connected to some of the

existing mountain bike tracks

in the Port Hills, and had the

perfect valley to install a chairlift

and zip lines.

Within three months Ms Sutton

visited the site.

“One thing led to another,”

Select Evolution programme

developer Darron Charity said.

But fate and a bit of luck

weren’t the only things that

brought the development to


“It took a hell of a lot of hard

work to get it across the line,” he


When phase one of the

Christchurch Adventure Park is

completed in December it will

be the largest of its kind in the

Southern Hemisphere.

To date it has cost $25 million.

The Government and

city council’s Development

Christchurch each contributed

$2 million, while the remaining

funding had come from a bank

loan, New Urban Group, and investment

from the United States,

Singapore and New Zealand.

new Port Hills leisure park

“We’ll have to go to market

to secure funding for the next

phase,” Mr Charity said.

He said the developers,

manufacturers and contractors

had crammed 20 months of work

into eight, just to get the park

open as a Christmas present for


There could be up to 150

contractors on site each day,

while there were another 100

people working on it off site, he


Construction began in April,

and already the early bird season

pass tickets have sold out. More

tickets aimed at casual users

and families will be released this


What’s more is the park is on

schedule and on budget, he said.

“We set a budget four years ago

and we’re still delivering on it. It’s

extremely tight.”

The majority of the new tracks

had been carved – some with

diggers, but the more technical

ones have been built by hand,

with the help of volunteers armed

with shovels and rakes.

Each jump has been designed

by engineers.

The 8km green track has a

gradient of about 3-4 per cent,

while the 5km blue track is about

5-6 per cent.

FITS IN: The cafe and bar is being built by Amalgamated Builders out of douglas fir – the same timber as the trees that surrounds it.

The hardest – the 5km black

track – is where the jumps are

introduced and is for more

experienced riders.

Riders from the age of seven

can have a go at mountain biking

at the park, and a track will be

installed for under five-year-olds

next to the cafe.

Mr Charity said the park

would get more people outdoors

and into the sport.

There would be 16 coaches at

the park, and mountain bikes

and safety equipment could be

hired, he said.

“This is a sport progression


But it’s not just for mountain

and downhill biking.

There is also a walking track,

you could enjoy a coffee or a

drink at the cafe and bar, not to

mention the activities for thrill


Four dual zip lines have been

installed in different parts of the

park – with one being 180m off

the ground.

At 1.8km, the electric-powered

chairlift will be the largest in

New Zealand, with the ability to

hold 56 chairs at any one time. At

the top, it will be 450m high.

Its control room arrives in the

next few weeks.

People will be able to ride the

chairlift to get to the top of the

park, where they can either use

the tracks to come down, head up

to the Summit Rd, or ride the zip

lines down.

Four people could fit in each

chair, with a stand for them to

park their bikes in.

The chairlift is custom-built to

the land.

Mr Charity said the douglas fir

trees below the chairlift had to

be cut down before a drone was

used to take footage of the route.

It was then sent over to

Austrian manufacturer

Doppelmayr which built the

towers, before shipping them to

Lyttelton, he said.

Mr Charity said contractors

spent three months doing

concrete work in preparation for

the tower installation, which took

a month.

At the entrance to the park,

three douglas fir timber buildings

sit amongst the forestry, housing

the ticketing reception, the

hire facilities and a cafe and

bar, which could seat up to 180


Mr Charity said the cafe and

bar would stock local produce,

and drinks, including Cassels

and Sons Brewery beer and wine

from Black Estate, Waipara.

commitment to deliver the

project in a short space, however

it had been four years of trying to

pull it together.

“Fiona told me that when

she felt they weren’t getting the

investment, she’d go and sit at the

site and say it has to happen and

now it’s a reality.”

Downhill mountain biker Lachlan

Cruickshank said the park

was one of the reasons he moved

to Christchurch, and he had already

snapped up a season pass.

“It is going to be one of the

best bike parks in the Southern

Hemisphere and could develop

Christchurch into a real mecca of

the sport going forward.”

Mr Charity said Select Evolution

had a 50-year lease for the

land, and it hoped to continue to

develop more of it.

“There’s at least 120km of track

that we can develop in here.

There’s so much scope.”

He said it was a “legacy project”

and as a cyclist himself,

was looking forward to riding it

rather than working on it.

“I didn’t expect to be working

100-hour weeks. But to see the

park come to life is always a

dream. It’s exceeded my expectations

in what it’s become.”

Ruapuna revs up this weekend


THE BUILD-UP for this

summer’s New Zealand

Sprintcar Championship begins

in earnest at Ruapuna on

Saturday night.

The Racecourse Hotel and

Motor Lodge Ruapuna Speedway

hosts the first round of the

$60,000 War of the Wings series,

with 25 drivers set to enter the


Drivers will qualify in two

lap-time trials and take part in

heat races before 18 cars face the

starter in the 25-lap feature race.

A number of drivers will be

using this weekend’s race as a

springboard to the nationals,

which will be held at Ruapuna in


Hornby racer Jamie Duff is

likely to carry the favourite tag

into Saturday night’s event after

a commanding win in the King

of the Clay event at Ruapuna

earlier this month.

Duff has not contested the

entire War of the Wings series

for several years, preferring to

contract and race at Western

Springs in Auckland.

However, Duff Motorsport

has moved its allegiance back

to the mainland and the War of

the Wings is a priority.

There will be a lot of interest

in the showing of four former

Woodford Glen competitors

who have all changed classes to

participate in the series.

READY TO GO: About 25 sprintcars will line up for the War of the Wings series at Ruapuna.

Former superstock racer Jason

Smith is now in his second season

of racing sprintcars and he

has shown plenty of pace in early

season events and can now see

some familiar faces with Martin

Harcourt (super saloons), Jackson

Lovelady (saloons) and Luke

Keegan (modifieds) having come

across town for the summer.

Keegan, a three-time winner

of the national modified crown,

has looked particularly sharp in

early season races, campaigning

in a Maxim, imported from the

United States by the Boulton

Racing Team.

One seasoned campaigner

who is relishing the influx of

drivers to the class is veteran Ray

Baughan, a long-time stalwart of

the sprintcar section at Ruapuna.

Last summer, Baughan shared

the overall War of the Wings

title with Ashburton’s Matt

Honeywell and Australian Allan

Woods, and he is very determined

not to have to share the

honours this summer.

Saturday night’s action starts

at 6pm, with the two-lap time

trials. Racing begins at 6.30pm.

HALSWELL HAS come back

from two consecutive losses to

table leader Heathcote at

Halswell Domain.

Heathcote won the toss and

put Halswell in to bat first on


Geoff Barclay hit a brisk 36

Matt Parr scored a wellcompiled

Halswell bowled a great

Weedons School in Christchurch has been educating children since 1871 and to mark its 145th

birthday the school is holding an exciting Christmas Twilight Fair on Friday, December 2 from 5pm

until 9pm and special celebration preparations are underway.

The organisers have been working hard for more than eight months to bring this special fundraising

event together which will include craft stalls, food vendors, entertainment and even a visit from

Santa Claus. Both organisers and students are

looking forward to showcasing their school to

Christchurch and the local community.

For those who may have been avoiding the

stress of Christmas shopping, the fair is a

fantastic opportunity to buy last minute

Christmas gifts in a relaxed and friendly

atmosphere. An Eftpos facility will be

available, and families with young ones can

take advantage of the children’s activities

offered on the day including face painting,

pony rides, bouncy castles and more.

Funds raised will go towards a new musical

playground for the children of Weedons

School which “encourages challenge and

exploration,” Kathy Bell, Principal of Weedons

School says. “The play area is likely to contain

percussion equipment of various sizes and

shapes that will allow children to explore the

elements of sound and audio play equipment

that has a science element to it and encourages

exercise and fitness.”

Get eggplant in the ground for February harvest

• By Tod Palenski

WHAT’S NOT to love about

having eggplant in your garden?

The fruit of this tropical perennial

is a perfect addition to

vege stews, an essential ingredient

in Mediterranean moussaka

and French ratatouille, and

great simply sliced, sprinkled

with salt and barbecued.

Look in your vegetable

garden for a well-drained and

sunny position to grow your

eggplant, otherwise known as


If you planted capsicum

and cucumbers recently like

I recommended, try popping

your eggplant seedlings next to


They’re good companion

plants, as they all like the same


They also like to hang their

fruit, so grow well planted in a

pot or raised garden bed.

Grab some seedlings and

simply plant around 20cm

apart. If you don’t have a suitable

raised bed or tub, add

some straw or newspaper

around the base of the plants

to stop the fruit from sitting on

damp soil and rotting. To help

your seedlings establish well,

making mini glasshouses out of

old milk bottles.

Cut the bottom off a recycled

and clean milk bottle. Put the

top over the plant but remove

the lid to allow for a bit of

wind circulation. Once they get

growing you can remove the

milk bottles.

The key with eggplants is not

over watering. They like it quite

dry and sunny and will rot if

they get too much water. If you

do water them, make sure you

avoid overhead watering.

In around February, your

fruit should be ready to harvest.

For a tasty addition to your

late summer barbecues, simply

slice the fruit into about six to

eight pieces (around 1cm thick

each), brush with olive oil on

both sides and barbecue. Once

cooked, add some rock salt for

taste and serve as a side.

Lastly, although eggplant

is technically a perennial (a

plant that dies down and pops

up again for many growing

seasons), in New Zealand it

tends to behave like an annual

because of our temperate climate,

which means once you’ve

harvested all your fruit simply

remove the plants and replant

next year.

GOOD COMPANIONS: The key to growing eggplant is not over watering.

Don’t let the rain stop you from gardening

EVEN THOUGH it has been a

wet start to the summer months

there are plenty of tasks to do in

the garden.

All summer vegetables should

now have been planted. This includes;

beans, beetroot, cabbage,

celery, corn, cucumber, lettuce,

courgettes, spring onions, peas,

pumpkin, radish, spinach, tomatoes,

silverbeet and kumara.

Make sure your developing

vegetables are well watered –

without over watering them.

Continue to ‘lateral’ (nip out

shoots that appear between the

junction of a leaf and the stem)

tomatoes and tie them to stakes

for support. Keep staggering

your vegetable plantings for

continuous cropping over the


New season herbs should also

be planted by mid-November.

It’s now safe to plant herbs

like basil and coriander as the

chance of frosts is minimal.

Remember herbs grow best in

a fine, well-drained soil in full

sun. They struggle in heavy clay

soil and in shady parts of the


Often the best month for

roses, full, clean blooms are

growing on healthy plants. Side

dress with fertiliser every 4-6

weeks. Dead head regularly to

aid continuous blooming.

For hedges, aim to trim them

‘a little and often’– they are best

trimmed after a flush of new

seasons growth. Water and

fertilise plants regularly to help

achieve a strong dense hedge.

This is especially important with

newly planted hedges.

Mulching is incredibly important

over the summer months to

keep your garden healthy. The

best mulch is a form of organic

matter that is applied as a layer

on top of your soil in your garden,

around plants, trees, and

especially in your pots, to help

protect them against the elements

and retain moisture.

Timing the application of

mulch is very important and it’s

better to wait until soil temperatures

have risen. In the colder

areas of New Zealand; such as

parts of the South Island, apply

mulch in mid-late November. In

warmer regions, mulch can be

applied from late October/early


This is the last month to sow

or patch large parts of your

existing lawn before it becomes

too dry. For a lush green lawn,

fertilise regularly with fertiliser

and water it in well.

LAYERING: Timing the application of mulch is important.

Feeding, mulching and watering azaleas,

Camellias and rhododendrons

Apply 100 grams per square metre of fertiliser 3 times

per year. Early spring, immediately after flowering and

then again in autumn. Apply around the dripline (where

the outer leaves lie) of the plant and be sure not to let

the fertiliser touch the base of the plant. Water well

after application, and continue with a regular watering

pattern, giving the plant a deep watering rather than a

light sprinkle. Add organic compost in late winter and

then again in January. Keep a ring around the base of

the plant free from mulch.

Look after those


To ensure you have

enough juicy lemons,

keep the water up to your

plants while they are in

flower now. Dry lemons

are directly related to

lack of water as the crop

develops over summer.

A layer of mulch works

wonders, apply mulch

after watering the soil.

Weed war

Get rid of those pesky weeds! Not only do they look

unsightly, they take up a lot of nutrients and water that

your plants need, as well as fight for space. Dedicate

time to remove them as soon as they pop up, then the

task won’t seem so daunting if you walk out one day

and all you see is weeds! Once you have removed them

all, add some Organic Compost and mix through the

soil. This will replenish the organic matter in the soil,

and create a better environment for your plants.

Weed, Water

& Mulch


in theGardEn

There are plenty of things to get done in the garden at the moment.

Here are a couple of tasks to keep you busy this month.

Keep up the watering

Keep the watering up now to stay ahead of the

game. Water is essential for healthy plant growth

and development. Establish a good watering routine,

ensuring you give your plants a good deep soak every

few days rather than a light sprinkling every day.

Mulch it

Adding a decent layer of bark mulch to your garden

will be a huge benefit to your plants. The main reasons

being it will help to reduce the weeds, conserve

moisture in the soil (which is especially important

through our hotter, drier months) and protect your

plant’s roots from the weather extremes. All of this

helps to give your plants the best chance at healthy

growth, as well as improving the overall look of your

garden. Intelligro have a great selection of barks and

mulches, come down and have a look for yourself, or

Field day to feature

speaker from Oregon

The Foundation for Arable Research (FAR) is holding its major

field day, CROPS 2016, on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at

the FAR arable site in Chertsey.

As usual it will feature a dozen speakers

covering a range of subjects relevant to

cropping in Canterbury. Gates will open at

9am, and the event will end with a dinner

after the last talks finish at 5.30pm.

This year’s international guest speaker

is Nicole Anderson from Oregon State

University, who will discuss issues around

seed production in Oregon, drawing links

with the New Zealand industry. Other

speakers will cover topics ranging from

pollination options to precision agriculture

in potatoes.

Sponsors always play a key role at

CROPS and this year seven companies

are taking up the option of Platinum

Sponsorship demonstration plots. They are

Adama, Ballance Agri-Nutrients, BASF,

Bayer Crop Science, Dow AgriSciences,

PGG Wrightsons and Syngenta.

Other sponsors with material on show

are AgriOptics, Environment Canterbury,

Farmers Mutual Group, Horticentre,

Irrigation NZ, NZ Seedlab, PowerFarming,

PMR Grain Systems, Precision Farming,

Rainer Irrigation and Ravensdown.

As in previous years, each of the 12 talks

will be repeated morning and afternoon,

lunch will be provided and there will be a

dinner at the end of the day.

Since its inception in 2002, CROPS

has developed into FAR’s key field event

and a ‘must-do’ for cropping farmers

and industry personnel. Over 600 people

attended CROPS in 2014, making it New

Zealand’s largest one-day agricultural

extension field event.

Gates will open at 9am,

Wednesday, December 7, 2016, and

the event will end with a dinner

after the last talks finish at 5.30pm.

Entries invited for competition

to find NZ’s tastiest lamb

The search for the nation’s top-tasting

lamb is in full swing with entries open for

the special 10th anniversary Beef + Lamb

New Zealand Glammies competition.

The competition aims to find the tastiest

and most tender lamb in New Zealand

and this year the Producer of the Decade

will also be determined following the 2017


Farmers and retailers nationwide are

invited to enter their lamb into the Glammies

with the meat to be scientifically assessed

by Carne Technologies in Cambridge for

tenderness, yield, succulence and colour.

From here, the top four entries from five

categories will make it through to the final

stage of the competition, a taste test, held at

the Wanaka A&P show on March 10.

Beef + Lamb New Zealand CEO Sam

Mclvor says the competition is a keenly

anticipated event for New Zealand farmers

and a way for them to display their worldclass


“The competition is a chance to celebrate

top-quality lamb and the New Zealand

farmers who produce it. We all know

it’s a Kiwi favourite and our lamb is also

preferred by consumers around the world,”

Mr McIvor says.

Robert Gardyne from Oturehua has had

huge success since receiving the 2016 Grand

Champion award.

“Last year I won the competition with a

high-country lamb, which was the first year

this has happened and goes to show the

vast range of quality products us farmers


“Furthermore, this competition has

helped me tell my story and promote

something that means so much to me and

other New Zealand farmers,” Mr Gardyne


The five competition categories include

Best of Breed - Traditional, Best of Breed -

Crossbreed, Best of Breed - Terminal Cross,

Best of Breed - Open, and Retail.

The competition is sponsored by Zoetis

New Hope For Long Term

Back Pain Sufferers

After more than eight years in

New Zealand, Teeter Hang-Ups

have now gained a reputation

for success with long-term

sufferers of Back pain. Inversion

New Zealand was started

eight years ago by Dave and

Nancy Hare, Dave had

suffered over twenty years of

back pain from Degenerated

Discs and had basically given

up and decided to just live

with it. “To me surgery was

never an option” he said “as

long as I still could walk, there

was hope”.

Dave had tried everything;

every time he was overseas

he would search for anything

that could possibly help.

While on one of these

overseas trips eight years ago,

Dave discovered the Teeter

Hang-Ups. “The first time I

tried it, the pain disappeared

and I was completely pain

free for about 30 minutes,

nothing had done that” he

told me. Dave never believed

it would fix him, “as specialists

had told me it was irreversible,

I now knew I had a place

to go every time I wanted

some serious relief”.

To Dave’s surprise the more

he used the table the longer

the pain stayed away, until

after nearly three months he

was completely pain free, “I

couldn’t believe it’ he told me

“I had spent large amounts of

money on every form of treatment

available and here

was something I had never

heard of sorting it out for

me in a very short period of

time” It was then Dave

decided to introduce Teeter

into New Zealand and Inversion

NZ was born.

Over the years INZ have

helped thousands of people

get some serious relief and

have seen results in not only

backs, but necks, hips,

knees, posture, circulation,

increased height, blood

pressure and lots more.

“We have testimonials from

people with over fifty years

of back problems and even

have them in a number of

schools in New Zealand for

their special needs children”

he told me, “the blood to the

brain helps these kids and

the results are excellent”

What this means for the

aging population is that it

helps maintain the health of

the brain as we all get older.

Dave told me that he

realised that, had he not

tried the Teeter for himself

he would still be suffering, “I

would still be a miserable

grumpy bugger, living with

pain, that is why we do the

shows, people need to try it

for themselves” he told me

“most people actually get

off with the pain either gone

or considerably less” he said

“we let the tables do the




Discs: It uses gravity to apply traction,

the traction gently opens the discs and as

they open up they create suction, this

suction draws fluid from the surrounding

tissue back into the discs, re-hydrating

them. This is the key! Discs do not have

their own blood supply, they rely on

transfer of fluid from the surrounding

tissue to keep them healthy and hydrated

and over the years as discs get thinner with

age, they lose the ability to take on fluid

(just like squeezing a sponge) and they

start to de-hydrate.

De-Hydrated discs are less flexible, they are

harder, more prone to injury, they interfere

with nerve roots creating pain and

ultimately the de-hydration causes degeneration.

The Teeter Inversion table slowly

and gently brings the hydration back into

the discs, plumping them up. This brings

back lost height (most people will regain

around 2 CM of height), it separates the

nerve roots far more effectively and returns

quality of life

Muscles: A lot of pain is muscular, when

muscles are stressed they become tight

which restricts the flow of blood and lymph

through the muscles so toxins build up,

Co2 and Lactic Acid. Traction opens up the

muscles, Rhythmic Traction, is a gentle

rocking motion that stimulates circulation

and encourages blood flow through the

muscles, which clears the lactic acid into

your lymph system where it stimulates

lymph flow and deals with it. Most people

with serious neck issues see a large

improvement after only one treatment.

Frank Harwood (84) of Turangi using his Teeter, Frank has been

Inverting for over eight years and has found it keeps him young

Posture: Poor posture is one of the

major cases of pain and is a major contributor

to the deterioration of the body with

age. A difference in leg length causes most

of the hip and knee issues, as they continue

to place uneven loads on the joints;

similar to the wheels out of alignment on

your car.

Trying to correct posture is extremely

difficult due to muscle memory, as it

constantly pulls the muscles back to where

they were. At a level of 40 degrees or more

on the Teeter, the muscle groups open up

and eventually come back into alignment,

using the table daily, does not allow the

muscle memory to pull them back out of

alignment and slowly the muscles start to

lose their memory and go with the flow,

allowing the body to come back into

correct posture. Then using the table once a

day will ensure it is kept there.

This is pure logic, if a machine is out of

alignment it does not last long, the only

difference between the body and a

machine is that the body is constantly

repairing itself, however if the wear and

tear on the body is greater than the body’s

ability to repair itself, it is a slow decline.

The Teeter slowly brings the body out of its

decline and allows the body to repair itself,

resulting in a far healthier life.

If you are serious about investing in your

health and really sorting your issues out,

come see us at one of our local roadshows,

you have nothing to lose and chances are, a

lot to gain.

12th & 13th November

10am to 4pm

Come along to our expo in Timaru, or come to

our expo in Christchurch next weekend.

(See below for details). If you have completely

resigned yourself to having back or neck pain for

the rest of your life, then chances are you will be

pleasantly surprised.



In 2008 I had been living with a serious lower back pain for

many years due to two discs with serious degeneration and

was scheduled for a double spinal fusion at a cost of

$48,000. The Specialist had recommended many lifestyle

changes including changing my profession, which was not

practical as I own my own business.

At the Waikato Home Show I experienced a demonstration

on a Teeter Inversion Table by Dave and Nancy Hare. To me

the effect was amazing, I actually experienced some serious

relief which lasted for an hour or two, I was told that the

relief would last longer with time as long as I used the table

regularly, so with the surgery scheduled for 12 weeks time,

having nothing to lose and a lot to gain I purchased a Teeter.

Four years on I still use my table on a daily basis, my back is

as strong as ever with very little or completely no pain, I am

still at my same profession and working as hard as ever and

most importantly I did not have the surgery. I consider the

purchase of my Teeter has been one of my greatest

investments, not only has it enabled me to avoid serious and

costly surgery, it has kept me in my profession and it has

brought my health back.

Thank you very much for the opportunity.

Very best regards

Paul Gordon



Come along for a free treatment

Here in New Zealand,

Dr Giresh Kanji, one of the countries most

respected Pain Specialists completed a PhD on

how humans experience pain and then

researched lower back pain, writing "Fix Your

Back" and then spent a few years researching

neck pain, headache and migraine and wrote

"Fix Your Neck Pain, Headache & Migraine",

both books are in most bookstores.

Dr Kanji discovered in his research that the disc

is the most likely source of low back pain and

Inversion showed the best results of all the trials

conducted. Three studies showed a 60%

reduction in pain and one showed a 75%

reduction in surgery for people with disc


Dr Kanji has personally been using the Teeter

Inversion tables for his own low back pain, has

Teeter Inversion tables at both of his clinics in

Wellington (The Sports and Pain Clinic) and has

had such success that he is now conducting the

largest study in the World on Inversion Therapy.

In his own words, "these things are gold and

inversion should be a first line treatment for low

back pain”.

Spa pool specialists now

open in Hornby

One of the city’s most well-known businesses, Wright Spa Pools

of Ferrymead, has just opened a new branch in Hornby.

Located at 20 Carmen Road, the premises formerly

occupied by Hampton Motor Cycles is conveniently

close to their client base, co-owner Matt Lowe says.

“We service the mid-Canterbury area, and with the

growth of the Lincoln, Rolleston and Selwyn areas, we

saw this site as ideal for the expansion of our business.”

The premises are almost three times the size of the

family-owned business’ Ferry Road site, where they

were running out of space, and are “as close as they

could get to a purpose-built site”.

Established in 1978, and trading on Ferry Road

since 1991, Wright Spa Pools specialises in the world’s

number one selling spa pools, the US-manufactured

Hot Spring spa pools.

“These Hot Spring spa pools are unique in that all

models are fully insulated, unlike other spa pools on the

market, and this makes them the most energy-efficient

spa pools in the world,” Matt says.

Models at the higher end of the range incorporate the

latest technology, utilising the ACE Salt Water sanitising

system, that works on real diamond electrodes to

generate softer, cleaner water. Offering a range of less

expensive models as well, Wright Spa Pools caters for

all budgets and requirements.

A new top-end line that has just been introduced is

the Endless Swim Spa, which provides a smooth and

consistent current for swimming against, with options

including an underwater hydraulic treadmill.

“These are the number one swim spas in the world,”

Matt says. “Unlike most swim spas that use jets to move

the water, the Endless Swim Spa provides a current like

a river, creating a more natural flow.”

Designed to offer therapeutic benefits, this spa is

Incorporating show homes

in your planning process

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 consideration’s to help spark your

planning process.

• What is your exterior style? What kind

of homes do you like? Look around and

take a mental note of what you are drawn

to most.

• What kind of exterior materials do you

like? Once you’ve worked out the look

you like, research what materials are

available and find out about durability.

• How will you use your house? It’s

important to most people to have a good

indoor/outdoor flow and attractive,

sheltered outdoor living. Imagine your

home in various seasons.

• Landscaping is important. Look around

and consider what you like and don’t like.

Are you a structured formal garden type

or do you like a contemporary native


• Sustainability and future-proofing

aren’t just buzzwords anymore. It’s

very important for your new home to

be environmentally friendly. Research

insulation requirements, solar hot water

heating, ventilation options and new

technology to ensure your home will be

affordable to run.

• Interior décor is really exciting. This is

where show homes can really help you get

to know current trends, colours, beautiful

furnishings and furniture. Collect home

magazines and figure out what you’d love

to emulate.

• Also, pause to give thought to

architectural components inside. Do you

remember 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

Dressing your property up for sale

Your house is on the market and you hope to get a good

price. While market performance will largely influence

this, presenting your home at its best will help.

First impressions count from

the moment potential buyers view

a property from the street to the

moment they walk through the front


Weed the garden, cut back unruly

shrubs and prune trees where needed.

Kill off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle

grass seed over bald patches and

fertilise the lawn.

Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess

or bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby

items or fitness equipment and if too

many photos on the wall pack these

away so the home looks roomy.

If there is a gap or a room needs

enhancing, look at what you have. A

piece of furniture might be painted up

or an old leather bound book popped

on the coffee table. Shelves will also

add depth to a narrow space while

mirrors may give the illusion of a

larger space. In entryways, add an easy

chair, small table, bookcase or large


Awkward spaces such as coved

ceilings in attics or upstairs rooms

might be converted into storage

shelving and the room given a purpose

as an office, playroom or extra

bedroom so viewers can see how the

room might be used.

Stow possessions neatly in

containers, shelving or tidily in

cupboards; highlighting the storage

potential within the home, ensuring

it is clean and tidy for viewing at any


Move the pets outside as not all

buyers will be pet lovers while some

may suffer pet allergies putting them

off a house if they see a pet inside.

If parts of the house look tired,

consider renovating by painting

walls, replacing worn carpet, or

modernising the kitchen, bathroom

and toilet; rooms that should sparkle.

Replace tired cabinetry, or the benches

and cupboard/drawer fronts then

update old toilets, showers or kitchen

appliances. Modernising these rooms

can lift the final selling price.

Use consistent and light paint

colours throughout for balance and

seamlessness, making the house

appear more spacious. An effect that

is increased when walls and curtains

share the same or a similar colour.

Consider the personality and

purpose of a room. Bright colours

lift living areas especially if large and

open. However, bedrooms are suited

to calmer softer colours with just a

touch of bold. Layer bedding or use

throws for effect along with cushions

or a stuffed toy in a children’s room.

With curtaining, smaller patterns or

plain fabrics are the rule for smaller

rooms whereas larger patterns make

spacious areas cosier. If blinds or

drapes are past their best, replace these

even if it is only with neutral cotton

curtains. The effect will be worth it.

Eco-friendly features will also add

value for some buyers though not

universally, however earthy natural

colours and features are popular.

Consider who your target buyers are

likely to be and what will appeal to
