VICTORY IN SIGHT

• By Tom Doudney

A FARMER has been ordered

to stop extending the land at the

edge of his property by filling in

the adjacent Selwyn/Waikirikiri

River bed.

Environment Canterbury

has issued an abatement notice,

requiring farmer Mike Dewhirst

to immediately stop work on the

land, on the south side of the river

near State Highway 1, after receiving

complaints from the public.

Mr Dewhirst, who grows silage

and grazes young cattle on his

riverside property, has been

taking gravel from the river and

filling in a strip of riverbed to

create pasture and a 2km long,

10m wide accessway for vehicles

and stock. Pivot irrigators have

been placed on the land.

ECan principal resource management

adviser Richard Purdon

said the work was unauthorised

and a formal investigation into

the matter had been initiated.

This was likely to take another

week to complete.

Mr Dewhirst said he had

resource consent to take gravel

from the river to form the access

lane and the work he was doing

would have environmental and

flood control benefits. He had

taken about 5000 cu m of gravel

from the river up to this point.

“It’s actually a really good thing

and a lot of farmers have been

actively encouraging ECan to increase

the amount of gravel that

gets extracted from the Selwyn

River in particular because

it’s probably 2m higher than it

should be for effective flood control,”

Mr Dewhirst said.

MORE EVIDENCE of growing

pains in the district is our page 3

article on mobile food and coffee

vans.

Councillors will vote tomorrow

on whether staff should prepare

a draft bylaw to control such

activities. There is concern that

as the district grows, there will be

many more mobile food outlets to

capitalise on the growing demand

from a growing population.

One Darfield business has

complained about the competition.

And that’s a big part of the

issue – if you are paying rent on

a building and the competition

down the road is selling from the

side of the road, it’s tough.

Council looks into

new rules for street vendors

• By Tom Doudney

A NEW bylaw may be

introduced to manage the

increasing number of mobile

food traders operating on

Selwyn’s roadsides and reserves.

District councillors will vote at

tomorrow’s meeting on whether

staff should prepare a draft bylaw

to control such activities. The

draft bylaw would be presented

for district councillors to consider

in July.

The staff report to tomorrow’s

meeting noted that there had

been an increasing number of

these traders, particularly food

carts and vans, operating or

inquiring about operating in

Selwyn, especially during the

summer months.

The report acknowledged that

careful consideration would have

to be given as to how a bylaw

would affect events, such as

farmers markets and festivals.

Mayor Sam Broughton said the

district council did not want to

make it harder for the public to

use reserves.

“It’s looking at people who

are making an income out of it,

rather than putting more red

STREET FOOD: The district council may introduce a bylaw

to manage the increasing number of mobile food traders

operating in Selwyn.

tape in place for community

groups,” he said.

The report said asset staff often

dealt with complaints arising

when traders operated on road

sides. However, difficulties arose

in persuading traders with the

appropriate licenses to relocate as

they had a common law right to

occupy public roads.

“Although the issues are not of

a particularly significant scale at

present, given the growth of the

district, requests to undertake

activities on land under the

control of the council and the incidence

of road side trading will

only increase,” the report stated.

Two street traders had operated

in Darfield over the last two

years, leading one local business

to complain about the competition

it was creating.

Other examples of mobile food

traders currently operating in

the district included a coffee cart

which parked beside the railway

station in Rolleston, a pizza cart

visiting Lincoln weekly from

September to May, as well as a

Thai food truck.

The district council currently

has a limited arsenal of

mechanisms to manage these

activities, including provisions

in the Parks and Reserves Bylaw

and a footpath rental policy.

However, there is no formal

process in place to assess

applications or keep track of

them.

A bylaw would guide the

granting of licences for trading

in public places, the types of

trading allowed, health and

safety, pedestrian access,

consideration of established

businesses and traffic flow.

The Ashburton and Timaru

district councils already have

bylaws covering trading in public

places, while the Christchurch

City Council and Hurunui

District Council control such

activities via clauses in their

public places bylaws.

Mr Broughton said the aim

was to have the bylaw in place in

time for the following summer,

so there was no urgency to

prepare it before July.

The time would allow staff to

do thorough research on what

had worked elsewhere.

Your Local Views

Darfield area resident

Take care on the roads

Senior

Sergeant

Pete Stills

writes on

policing

matters in

Selwyn

IT HAS been a really interesting

year for policing in Selwyn.

When I started in the

Christchurch west area as the

police community services

manager three years ago, my

mandate was to lead a change to

the prevention first policing model.

The purpose being to create a safer

community and a place where

residents and others felt safer.

At the front of the model is a people

focus particularly on victims

or potential victims. Within the

focus there are five areas that drive

the focus – families, alcohol, youth,

organised crime and policing the

roads.

It was obvious that the greatest

single policing risk in the area was

vehicle crashes involving death

and/or serious injury.

Statistically the greatest number

of serious crashes were happening

at intersections. It was evident that

failing to stop at intersections was

a massive problem and it was apparent

that motorists were failing

to be aware of approaching stop

controlled intersections.

This year we have trialled the use

of LED light advanced warning

signs at some intersections. It is too

early to gather statistical data to

make comparisons with historical

data but my observation is that

safety improvements have reduced

crashes at those locations.

Policing is really about health

and safety.

An issue this year has been the

high percentage of burglaries and

thefts occurring where security

is poor in that people have failed

to utilise locks. It can be really

frustrating for us as there is a very

simple solution.

I won’t say too much as an earlier

article I wrote regarding this issue

caused one young man to decide

to try his luck as it sounded all too

easy. Fifty-plus burglaries later he

was apprehended.

As we enter the festive season it

is timely for me to remind drivers

that police will be actively operating

drink drive enforcement in

Selwyn to ensure that everyone

is safe. We encourage motorists

to plan for sober drivers and to

utilise courtesy vehicles when using

licensed premises.

Christmas Decorations

Grant Prescott writes

in response to a

Selwyn Times article

about a Lincoln

resident’s frustration

over a section of road,

West Belt, remaining

unsealed

We live on a shingle

road just outside Darfield

that is a complete disgrace,

more like a thirdworld

road and all the

council do is come along,

shove stones back in the

potholes and within a day

they are all flicked out and

hey presto, the potholes

have returned.

When we ask about

sealing, the council claims

to do a survey to count

vehicles but every time

they do it at peak summer

time when schools

are closed, businesses are

closed, people are on holidays

and there is no local

movement.

I note Selwyn took an

extra $50 off everyone for

roads to assist with sealing.

Where did that go?

District council chief

executive David Ward

responds:

The district council

does not currently fund

seal extensions on existing

rural roads. This policy

was adopted a number of

SELWYN TIMES

years ago after rising costs

made it unaffordable to

continue the sealing of

low-volume rural roads.

It also recognises the

increasing cost of maintaining

the sealed roading

network and other funding

priorities needed to

cater for significant traffic

growth across the district,

including an increase in

heavy vehicles.

Many rural roads have

low traffic volumes which

don’t justify sealing at a

cost of around $150,000

to $200,000 per kilometre.

Current budgets allow

for regular grading and

maintenance work, which

provide an appropriate level

of service based on usage.

The $60 targeted roading

rate was introduced

in 2014/15 to fund additional

road resealing and

reconstruction, to prevent

further deterioration.

Reconstruction work

is needed on some busy

main routes where the

road pavement needs to

be rebuilt to address long

standing maintenance

problems and reduce

ongoing costs.

Since its introduction

this has contributed to

road rehabilitation work,

over and above what

would otherwise have

been programmed.

Flick the switch

and light the

deer up.

University could cut 51 jobs

•From

• By Tom Doudney

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY staff

are angry at the proposed axing

of 51 jobs and want more input

into the university’s future

direction, Tertiary Education

Union president Dr Sandra Grey

says.

The staffing cuts are part of

the university’s latest change

proposal, aimed at resolving its

flagging financial situation with

a $5 million deficit and falling

enrolments.

Several courses, including

four science majors, were cut in

October and more than 100 had

already been cut in 2013 and

2014.

About two thirds of the new

cuts would be in Canterbury and

the remainder would be at its

Telford campus in Balclutha.

Dr Grey said staff were

“rightly” very angry.

“They feel there has been a lot

of change and a lot of consultants

brought in and a lot of

not listening to people on the

ground who know the courses,

the students and the industries

they are teaching for. They are

finding that very difficult that

they are not more involved in

the discussions and deciding

what is going to happen,” she

said.

“It’s always tough when there

is major change proposed but

in particular, the Lincoln staff

had their last major restructure

only two years ago, they feel they

have been through the ringer

once and they’re about to be put

through quite a harsh process

again.”

A university spokeswoman

said it was acknowledged that

this was a stressful time for

staff, and internal and external

support was being provided to

them.

“The change proposals that

have been released are exactly

that, proposals. This is an opportunity

for staff to contribute

to the outcome,” the spokeswoman

said.

“The university recently announced

the ‘resuscitation’ of

academic governance. All proposals

concerning courses and

programmes brought to the academic

board are first developed

at faculty teaching committees

BAD NEWS:

Lincoln

University is

proposing

to cut 51

jobs.

Inset –

Sandra

Grey ​

where staff can provide direct

input.”

Ms Grey said the union would

be putting forward a submission

opposing the cuts.

The university’s vice-chancellor

Robin Pollard has admitted

the staff cuts will not be enough

on their own.

Staff have also been asked to

take leave to reduce financial

liabilities and the university is

looking at selling some of its

assets and partnering with other

institutions.

Farmer in

river land battle

page 1

He said getting rid of the gorse

on the riverbanks removed a

source of nitrogen going into

the river and he also had a plan

to plant 8000 pittosporum trees

around his property, including

along the riverbank.

However, Dunsandel resident,

Alan Goodwin, said the case

was the “tip of the iceberg” with

many landowners expanding into

river bed land which he said was

ruining the environment and its

recreational value.

Mr Dewhirst said he would

“eventually” be interested in buying

the land but for now it was

more a case of “being steward of

the land.”

Mr Goodwin, has complained

to ECan about the work on Mr

Dewhirst’s land.

“I am sick and tired of rivers

being abused for the few at the cost

of the many.”

Mr Purdon said while there had

been pressure on all Canterbury’s

riparian margins as farming land

values increased and practises

intensified, land owners generally

sought permission before farming

these areas.

“Where we know about those that

breach Environment Canterbury

rules, like putting in illegal structures

or grazing cattle in river beds,

we have taken action,” he said.

FOR THE 2017

ABOUT 15 district council staff

have been helping out with the

earthquake response in North

Canterbury.

They have been working in

the region since Monday last

week, when the 7.8 magnitude

earthquake struck near

Culverden. The quake has been

followed by a series of significant

aftershocks.

The district council’s incident

command bus has also been in

North Canterbury for the week,

being used by response teams

working in Waiau. The bus is

designed to be used at significant

rural fires or emergencies and is

equipped with Wi-Fi and radio

communications.

District council staff trained in

emergency management

have also been rostered on this

week to assist with incident coordination.

Four building staff have been

assisting with building inspections

in Waiau, with two other

staff working in welfare management

roles.

Community resilience coordinator

Jason Flewellen was

also among the staff who spent

time in North Canterbury. He and

another staff member took the bus

to Waiau, with 20 New Zealand

Response Team members from

Christchurch.

“The response team managed

to visit 130 properties to complete

rapid impact assessments on the

day. Some of the houses there had

Several Selwyn volunteers from

community response teams also

offered to assist with the earthquake

response and were placed

on standby to support evacuees

from Kaikoura and other affected

areas at Canterbury welfare centres.

Mayor Sam Broughton said it

was great to see the community

years this coming April. I was

born in Southland but I left there

in pre-school so Westport is

actually what I call home.

How did you get into

scouting?

I joined venturer scouts over

in Westport before I left school. I

was never in any of the younger

ones and then at 18, that’s as far

as you can go in scouts and you

have got to become a leader (if

you want to stay involved) so I

did in 1982.

Have you been involved in

leading scouts ever since?

I’ve had broken service off

and on, I’ve moved around the

country a bit. I left the West

Coast and came to Canterbury

in the mid-1980s farming up the

Rangitata Gorge, and then ended

up in the North Island for six

years.

What was it that made you

want to become a venturer?

The guys I was at school with

were doing it and I thought

‘yeah, this is a bit of me.’ We

spent most of our time as

venturers caving and I got a

real buzz out of that. A lot of

the time we spent was at a place

called Honeycomb Hill. We

were the original group that

mapped that and it is a massive

system, which is closed off now

because of the value of what

is in there which could be too

easily damaged. There are a lot of

moa bones and we found a full

Haast eagle skeleton, which is

leg.

in the Canterbury Museum. We

would spend a whole weekend

underground, just going in on a

Friday night and staying there.

Were you farming when you

were in the North Island as

well?

No, I got to the stage where

I wanted to make a decision as

to whether farming was what I

wanted to end my life doing so

I got as far away from farming

as I could so I actually went and

sat behind a desk, I wore a suit

and tie. I enjoyed it while I was

there, but I was getting sick of it

when the company got bought

out and I got made redundant.

So it all sort of worked out really

good, but it made me sit down

and think that farming was what

I was born and bred for and I got

back into it.

What sort of company were

you working for?

It was a big laundry based in

Taupo and they supplied all the

linen for the big hotels. My job

was sales and service manager

so I was in charge of a fleet of

drivers, I was out making sales,

getting new clients and chasing

bad debts. It was exciting for a

while but I missed my stock and

my dogs and everything.

Do you have any other interests

outside of scouting and

farming?

Probably just sheep dog trialling,

but at the moment I haven’t

the time and my dogs are not

quite up there yet. I had quite

a good heading dog years ago,

called Stacey, that I trialled. Unfortunately,

she got injured quite

young in life and I was pretty

successful at a couple of sheep

dog trials with her.

KEEP IT SAFE

Our pre-Christmas exhibition

is once more, a lovely mix of

five female artists working in

a range of media, both two and

three dimensional.

Jane Downes continues to play with her

dandelion structures. She manages to

make metal ethereally beautiful.

Katrina Perano’s anthropomorphic painted

portraits of familiar and exotic creatures are

so endearing.

Blanche Fryer is a whimsical ceramic artist

who incorporates painting into her recycled

native timber framed artworks.

Kate Beatty uses appropriate botanical

references in repeating pattern as a

backdrop to her detailed and beautiful

native bird paintings.

Elisha Jordan’s birds belie their sturdy

stainless steel structure, they are graceful

and animated.

and his three-legged sheep dog

She broke her leg badly and

they couldn’t save the leg so I

ended up with a three-legged

dog – and that’s when she won

the trials, she only had the

three legs at that stage. But then

she went on to injure her only

other back leg and at that stage,

unfortunately, the vets had to put

her to sleep.

Is it as impressive as it sounds

that she won those trials with

three legs?

Yes, at the Loburn North

trial she won all nine trophies

available. She was actually the

only dog, whether three-legged

or four-legged, to have won

all the trophies available in a

particular year at that trial. A

back leg doesn’t restrict them

as much as you might think it

does, losing a front leg is a lot

harder on them. But she was an

exceptionally good dog.

How did she injure the first

leg that she lost?

She jumped off my fourwheeler

to catch a sheep for

me and it was just the way she

landed on the ground, her back

leg broke. I had to take her to

specialists in Christchurch

and they put it back together

with a whole lot of pins and

external scaffolding on it but,

unfortunately, infection got into

SCOUTING: David Grafton at a recent venturers camp.

it and they couldn’t save the leg.

She had the amputation and

was happily back at work within

10 days. But I always knew that

probably one day her other back

leg would be her downfall and

she injured it to a point where

the vet said it’s just not fair. That

wasn’t one of my better days

when I had to make the final

decision.

How did she injure the other

leg?

She was heading a mob of deer

for me and she went through a

drain, the leg went into the mud

and it pulled the joint out. Had

she had another back leg, you

could strap that one up and she

could take the weight off it and it

would heal, but that was her only

back leg so she couldn’t stand up

at all.

Do you and your wife [Jacqui]

have any kids?

We have identical twin boys,

Thomas and James, who just

turned 15. They’re both venturers.

Is that interesting having

identical twins?

It was a bit trying to start off

with, getting to know who was

who, but even though I don’t

think they look alike, most

people say they do, but they have

two completely different personalities.

How long did it take you to

start being able to tell them

apart?

Thomas was born with a wee

strawberry birthmark on his

forehead and that stayed there

until just before he started

school. The one thing Jacqui

decided right from day one was

we would not dress them the

same. Thomas has his colours

and James had his colours so

that they did develop their different

personalities. In saying

that, there is something there

about twins – some connection,

some force, I don’t know what

it is, but when they were little,

they had their own language

and they knew what was going

on between one another without

other people knowing what was

going on.

With all the adventures you

would have been on over the

years, can you think of any

times when you or your scouts

had to use your special scout

skills to get you out of a difficult

situation?

No, through good planning I

have never got into a situation

which has not been part of what

was planned. The last trip we

did with the venturers was up

the back of Mt Somers. We spent

two days in the snow up over our

knees. In the second hut, we met

a group of German students that

had gone in there, some of them

were wearing sand shoes, one

Museum.

had no sleeping bag, they had no

safety equipment at all and were

going to carry on to the next hut.

We strongly advised them they

really shouldn’t be there.

I suppose scouting must be

like having a big family for you

in some ways.

Scouting is like a family. You

see them grow and develop and,

although I have only been here

five years, five years in a young

person’s life is a long time. I say

to all of them, ‘I am here to help

you as much as I can to achieve

what you want to achieve, I am

not going to spoon feed you but

if you want my help, you know

where I live, you know my phone

number,’ and I personally get a

real buzz out of seeing the kids

get something out of it themselves

and achieve goals.

Back to the future for Jordan Luck

Jordan Luck has written some of New

Zealand’s most iconic rock anthems. He spoke

to Tom Doudney about life after The Exponents

and the inspiration behind his latest material

ahead of The Jordan Luck Band’s performance

at Lincoln’s Selwyn Sounds concert in March

MORE THAN 30 years after

their debut single Victoria

established The Exponents as

Kiwi rock heavyweights, singer

Jordan Luck’s songwriting is

again in the spotlight.

His new outfit, The Jordan

Luck Band, was nominated for

best rock album at Thursday’s

New Zealand Music Awards.

It didn’t win the award but

Luck said it was phenomenal to

have the album, Not Only . . .

But Also, getting such a positive

reaction.

While his songwriting hadn’t

changed much over the years,

he works harder on the lyrics

these days than he did in the

early years of The Exponents

(originally known as The Dance

Exponents).

“I find the tunes are still coming

out of the air for me but it

takes a lot longer to do lyrics

than it did,” Luck said.

“I was pretty spontaneous back

in the day, whereas now I am

a wee bit conscious of the fact

I might be singing these in 20

years again, so I really want to be

singing something that I want to

be singing.

“That has been the case since

about 1990, when Victoria was

about 10-years-old and I was

thinking ‘wow, people still really

like this song, I wonder what

is going to happen to the new

stuff?’ And here we are nearly 20

years later and people are still

singing ‘Why does love do this

to me?’ And I’m going, ‘flipping

hell, I better make the next one

really good’.”

However, Luck said this process

had resulted in his best lyrics

yet on Not Only . . . But Also.

“Even if you didn’t hear the

music, it’s a good read,” he said

The songs, written over the last

three years, cover some very New

Zealand territory, often with an

interesting twist. There is one

about a murder in Lake Tekapo,

another about selling paintings

Sounds concert in March.

on holiday in Southland and “a

beautiful one” inspired by his

memories of getting lost near the

Wanganui River while on a road

trip with original The Dance Exponents

guitarist Steve Cowen.

He and Cowen, who died in

1986, had been on their way to

record Victoria at the time, when

Luck, who was behind the wheel

of their Bedford van, decided

to take an alternative route.

The Exponents’ induction into

the New Zealand Music Hall

of Fame last year, with Cowen

also recognised, had brought the

memories back.

“The song is really about missing

him in a way that is pretty

strong.”

Luck said starting a new band

after the success of The Exponents

had been tough in some

ways.

“The Exponents turn up all the

time, there is no getting away

from that – we got into the hall

of fame last year and now there is

a TV film that they are doing on

The Dance Exponents.”

However, he still enjoyed playing

the old songs and said the

band’s performance at Selwyn

Sounds was likely to be about 75

per cent The Exponents material.

Unlike many of the line-up, it

will not be Luck’s first time playing

in Lincoln. The Exponents

have played a number of gigs at

the university over the years.

Selwyn Sounds will be

held on March 4, 11.30am-

8.30pm. Tickets can be

290 halSwell road

Why top athletes use Chiropractic care

Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps are among the

many elite athletes who use a chiropractor to

ensure they are performing at the top of their

game. They see the benefit in not only training

hard but keeping their body at optimum ability to

ensure they can always get the best from it.

You don’t need to be performing at this level

of sport to see the benefits a chiropractor can

make in your life to ensure your body is working

at its peak.

I provide physical solutions including

adjustments, exercises, stretches and muscle

therapy – to readjust the body or help it heal

from conditions that are physical in origin. These

can include problems such as back pain, muscle

spasms, headaches and poor posture.

What you may not know is that it is also

completely appropriate to receive chiropractic

care even though you may not have symptoms.

Unlike standard medical doctors who you visit

when you have symptoms that need to be

treated, chiropractors offer adjustments to

improve spinal alignment and overall wellbeing

– and can prevent the pain or other symptoms

even starting.

Going to a chiropractor is much the same as

going to the dentist or gym or even leading

a healthy life – it prevents problems from

reaching critical stage where you can become

incapacitated and as long as you keep up with

regular visits, then you continue to enjoy the

benefits of a life feeling well.

I have been providing Chiropractic

Care for patients for more than 15

years of and over that time I have

gained outstanding results for my

patients. These people have come to

me for a variety of reasons, here are

just some of them.

Suffering illness,discomfort or

pain These symptoms are signs

of dysfunction in your body. This is

a important time to remove nerve

interference and irritation to ensure

your spine functions optimally and

symptoms are alleviated.

5 Warning Signs

Accident or trauma

Car or bike accidents and falls can cause severe

spinal stress and subluxations If not attended to

these can cause or contribute to health problems

later in life.

Active exercise/sport

Chiropractic care gives you an edge. Many

professional athletes and sportspeople seek

regular chiropractic care to ensure they are working

at their optimum.

Pregnancy/Childbirth/Infant caring

The hormonal and physical changes in pregnancy

create spinal stress. The birth process can be

traumatic for both mother and baby, and both may

require care following delivery. Caring for a baby

or infant can contribute to neck and/or back pain

ie: position of mother during breast feeding and

bending to pick up baby.

If you would like to learn more about how I can

assist you in any of these areas please contact me

Pilot’s war exploits in print

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

PILOTING Lancaster bombers

and losing two brothers in World

War 2 are a few of the stories in a

book about two Selwyn residents’

father.

THe stories of Barrie and Kevin

Mallon’s father Bill in World

War 2 were published recently on

the other side of the world.

THe late Bill Mallon’s exploits

for the Allies in the United

Kingdom, and training exercises

in Canada and the United States,

have been published by English

author Vic Jay, whose father

served alongside Mr Mallon in

World War 2.

Retired teacher Mr Jay’s book

The Mallon Crew covers the

story of his own father Bob Jay, a

flight engineer in the No 75 New

Zealand Squadron, whose crew

included pilot Bill Mallon.

Barrie, a Lincoln resident, and

Kevin, from Rolleston, grew up

in Gisborne and New Plymouth

in the 1950s, just years after their

father returned from serving

in the war with the Royal New

Zealand Air Force.

Kevin Mallon said he fondly

remembers sitting in the cockpit

of a Lancaster bomber, the same

type of plane as the one his

father flew in, about 10 years ago

FINAL MISSION: Lancaster AA-W on its final mission heading to Bad Oldesloe in Germany on

April 24, 1945. Inside the cockpit is Bill Mallon (right) and Bob Jay. ​

with his father. It was during a

visit to the Museum of Transport

and Technology in Auckland.

Mr Jay said his book is about

a small group of unremarkable

men “thrown together briefly”

during the last months of the war

and the way their stories have

unfolded 70 years on.

As they grew up, the brothers

constantly asked their father

about his service and his stories.

He would tell them tales and

take them to air shows across

the country as they grew up,

which peaked Barrie’s interest

in aviation. He works for Air

New Zealand engineering and

manages spare parts for aircraft.

Mr Jay contacted Barrie

Mallon in 2012 asking if he was

the son of Bill Mallon. After four

years of correspondence, they

have never met and never spoken

on the phone.

“I’ve never met Vic, we’ve

only emailed throughout the

four years. But I asked him

recently for his phone number,”

he said.

Barrie Mallon said Mr Jay at

one stage asked why his father

had left the war so quickly to get

back to New Zealand when the

final mission was completed.

“After their last mission, no

one knew why he left (Europe)

so quickly. I explained that he

had two brothers . . . killed in the

war and he was the [family’s] sole

survivor. A petition was put to

the New Zealand Government

at the time by the local people

of New Plymouth to bring him

back,” he said.

Meetings

planned for

outlying areas

• By Tom Doudney

THE DISTRICT council has

scheduled about half as many

meetings next year, cutting back

from two meetings a month to

one.

The district council will also

hold three meetings outside

Rolleston, a move previously signalled

by Mayor Sam Broughton.

Meetings will be held in Lincoln

in April, Darfield in June and

Leeston in September.

The Malvern Community

Board will do the same, holding

four meetings outside of Darfield

next year. They will be in Arthur’s

Pass in February, Sheffield

in May, Glenroy in August and

Lake Coleridge in November.

Mr Broughton said the district

council meetings in Lincoln, Darfield

and Leeston would seek to

include items of local importance

to each area on the agenda.

The reason for cutting back

to one meeting a month was

because with two meetings a

month, many of the agendas had

not been very full.

“To make better use of

councillor time, we decided to

have monthly meetings,” Mr

Broughton said.

School prepares for milestone

• By Tom Doudney

TAI TAPU School will

celebrate its 150th

anniversary in March at its

biennial fair.

The school opened in

January, 1867, only three years

after the national education

board was formed, with 23

pupils.

Principal Andrew Barker

said celebrating the school’s

milestone was exciting.

“The school has been a big

part of the community over

that time and although the

township has increased, it has

still very much got its rural

flavour,” he said.

The school had been based

at several different sites over its

history.

Looking back

It is reaching out to former

pupils, teachers, Parent Teacher

Association members, and

The golden wedding anniversary of Mr and

Mrs George Foster was celebrated in 1913.

They were married in 1863 and came to New

Zealand in 1880 on the Edwin Fox. They settled

in Springfield. They had 13 grandchildren and

nine great grandchildren.

No Z Energy or BK for Rolleston

• By Tom Doudney

Mark Alexander

RUMOURS OF a new petrol

station and fast food joint

in Rolleston have had cold

water poured on them by the

companies involved.

Rumours have been circulating

on social media that

Z Energy and Burger King

planned to open on a shared

site in the town.

Z Energy

spokeswoman

Georgina Ball

said the company

would

like to have a

site in Rolleston

but at this

stage nothing

was planned.

“It’s a growing area and the

roading changes will make it a

good stopping place for people

heading to and from Christchurch,

but at this stage, we have

no plans to build one,” she

said.

“We are, however, always

looking for suitable places to

build service stations and a

Rolleston site could happen if

we can find the right place to

build and get approval.”

Burger King general

manager of marketing James

NOT YET: A joint Z Energy and Burger King site rumoured to be built in Rolleston won’t be

going ahead at this stage.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Woodbridge said there were

“no details to share as we have

not made any commitment to

opening in Rolleston.”

A district council

spokeswoman said no

resource consent application

had been received for either a

Z Energy or a Burger King in

Rolleston.

District councillor Mark

Alexander said the town’s

only current petrol station,

Rolleston BP on State Highway

1, could sometimes be busy

but it usually wasn’t too bad.

It would be a commercial

decision if another operator

wanted to set up in the town,

he said.

“There is a business

opportunity there but it is up

to someone to grasp that,” he

said.

A Caltex diesel truck stop

on Hoskyns Rd was opened

last year.

Rolleston resident Lynley

Shaw said it would be nice to

have a petrol station on the

other side of town but she

appreciated that would come

down to the business case for

petrol companies.

“I’d much rather have one

that’s really good than two

that are struggling,” she said.

“I do think there is enough

traffic that goes past . . . but

to be fair, other than long

weekends, I don’t have to wait

too long [at the BP].”

New sports club will promote hockey

• By Tom Doudney

A NEW sports club has been set

up to foster hockey in eastern

Selwyn.

While hockey would initially

be the main focus of the

Waikirikiri Sport club, it is

intended to eventually include

other sports which are currently

not widely available in Selwyn.

Waikirikiri Sport president

Lyndal Marshall (right) said the

club intended to enter junior

hockey teams up to under-13

level into next year’s Canterbury

Hockey winter competition.

It would also offer a range of

programmes to develop coaches

and provide support to high

school hockey teams playing in

Christchurch.

“Hockey has been the driving

force to get it going, but because

there is such a demand for sports

out here, we have set up the club

in such a way that other sports

can come on board in the future

and give people access to other

sports that aren’t currently out

here,” she said.

The district already has the

Malvern Hockey Association,

based in Darfield, and Lincoln

High School has its own hockey

teams, and some residents

in eastern areas play for

Christchurch clubs.

Eastern Selwyn has been short

of facilities for players to practice

on but the district council, with

support from Waikirikiri Sport,

will put in a half hockey turf at

Rolleston’s Foster Park by early

next year.

This will be able to host junior

hockey games and practice

sessions for senior players.

Mrs Marshall said the club

aimed to bring the game to

Selwyn residents who might not

otherwise play hockey.

“It will now become a feasible

option for locals because the

practice facilities are right here,”

Mrs Marshall said.

The club will work with

Lincoln High School, Lincoln

University and the yet-to-open

Rolleston College. Lincoln High

School head of sport Craig

Crawford said starting a new

club from scratch presented some

exciting opportunities.

“From my school’s point of

view, we are interested in seeing

the game grow and be supported

by the club,” Mr Crawford said.

Selwyn boys part of cup

winning football squad

TWO 11-YEAR-OLD Selwyn

footballers, Finlay Cotton and

Liam Murdoch, have been

reunited with the trophy their

team won a month ago in a

gruelling four-day tournament in

Sydney.

Finlay and Liam were part of

the Timaru-based Aoraki Football

Academy team which won

the Sydney International Cup

in the tournament held at the

Sydney Academy of Sports.

The cup itself is now rotating

around the Aoraki team, and will

be in Selwyn for the next two

months.

Aoraki started the tournament

strongly by beating runners-up

from last year, Narrabeen Strikers,

4-0. They then progressed

through pool play unbeaten, with

excellent performances against

the International Football School

(2-0 win) and Soccer de Brazil

(6-0 win).

In difficult, hot and humid

conditions in the semi-final, the

Aoraki boys kept their nerve and

beat Anderson Soccer Academy

3-0. Finlay had an outstanding

game and scored all three goals.

Against strong opposition, Aoraki

did well to concede only one

goal in all games leading up to

the final.

The team’s defensive strength

IN HAND: Finlay Cotton (left) and Liam Murdoch will get to look

after the Sydney International Cup over the next two months,

which was won by their Aoraki Football Academy team.

was due in large to consistent

performances from its centre

backs, including Liam.

The final was a particularly

physical game against a tough,

technical and well-drilled Gold

Coast United side. United went

1-0 up early in the game, and a

rugged battle ensued as Aoraki

tried to get a foothold in the

match. With six minutes to

go, Hayden Teixeira equalised

for Aoraki after a goalmouth

scramble.

Then, as extra-time beckoned,

and with only one minute left on

the clock, Finlay leapt up to head

home the winning goal from a

corner. Coach Jaime Linton was

full of praise for his Aoraki team.

“It was a tremendous performance

from the boys to handle

the pressure so well and come

back from a goal down in the

final,” he said.

Linton, together with Jason

Power, both of whom run the

Aoraki Academy, planned the

Sydney foray methodically but

admitted the team had exceeded

expectations in performing so

well against high-quality opposition.

Linton was particularly proud

of the boys’ on-field and off-field

conduct.

“The boys learned heaps and

we got lots of compliments from

tournament officials and organisers

about the boys’ behaviour.

We’ve been invited back next

year and, as champions, we’ll

certainly be looking to go back

and defend our title,” he said.

A COUPLE of the area’s top

ladies’ bowls players clashed in

the Ellesmere Open on Friday,

but it was Lincoln’s Lyndsey

Withell who came away with the

trophy.

Withell defeated two-time

defending champion Serena

Matthews, of Southbridge, in

the final at the Lincoln Bowling

Club.

Heading into the last three

ends, Withell led 12-5, but Matthews

drew on her experience,

clawing her way back to go into

the last round down just 12-11.

However, Withell’s steady draw

game had her holding the shot

she needed with a bowl to spare.

Matthews’ final bowl missed by a

whisker to give Withell the win.

Earlier, the day had begun with

four qualifying games, which

saw the field of 10 reduced to four

semi-finalists.

Both semi-finals were onesided,

with Withell defeating

Akaroa’s Melva Parke and

Matthews beating Diamond Harbour’s

Pauline Smith.

No doubt Withell and Matthews

will look forward to meeting

again in two weeks when the

open pairs competition is played

in Diamond Harbour.

THE WEEKEND competition

was a stroke round and the

weather came to the party. This

meant that both our morning

and afternoon fields were strong

and with the course in great

condition, it was there for the

taking.

Dominic Brettkelly did

exactly that, shooting a gross

62 (six birdies and 12 pars) off a

plus two handicap, setting a new

course record.

Darrin Lewis had a great

round also with a net 59 and

three others shot net 61. It was

tough to get amongst the prizes

this weekend.

Dave Allen also won the

Fitzgibbon Rosebowl for 2016

defeating Alec Martin in the

final.

Be alerted in an emergency

Selwyn has its own community based emergency response

support and notification network called Selwyn Gets Ready. The

system allows people to sign up for free to receive alerts via text or

email in an emergency. This alert system operates in conjunction

with local volunteer networks who check on households needing

support and provide assistance if needed or request help from

Council where required.

The Selwyn Gets Ready system was used last Monday to send

warnings and advice following the North Canterbury earthquakes.

To join this system visit www.selwyn.getsready.net

If you or someone you know would like assistance and support in

the aftermath of the recent quakes, there is help available. Please

contact the Canterbury Support Line on 0800 777 846 (7 days a

week 9am-11pm).

If you would like to make a donation to support those affected by

the recent earthquakes please visit www.redcross.org.nz

Real time travel information is now available to people travelling between a number of Selwyn

towns and Christchurch city.

New sensors have been installed on many busy routes across Christchurch city, Selwyn and

Waimakariri. The sensors monitor travel times between different locations by locating

Bluetooth IDs from devices inside vehicles and tracking how long it takes vehicles to travel

between these locations.

In Selwyn, the sensors provide live travel times to and from Rolleston, Lincoln, Prebbleton,

West Melton, Tai Tapu and Christchurch city via main travel routes. Travel times by bus and

bike are also provided for some routes, along with bus fares and estimated journey costs by

car for comparison.

Sensors to monitor Selwyn’s local arterial roads connecting to Christchurch have been funded by

Selwyn District Council as part of a plan to provide more information for people travelling to and

from the district. This information will also enable the Christchurch Transport Operations Centre

to improve managing peak commuter traffic flows coming in and out of the city – for example,

through improved traffic signal management.

“We recognise the growth occurring in Selwyn towns and other towns close to the city and we

want to make it easier for people to plan their journeys to avoid busier times and see what is

happening in real time on the roads so they can make informed choices,” says Ryan Cooney,

Manager Christchurch Transport Operations Centre.

To access this free real travel time information service visit the Transport for Christchurch website

www.tfc.govt.nz and select the ‘Current Conditions’ tab then the ‘traffic dashboard’ option. The

website also has a range of other information including planned roadworks and updates on any

traffic incidents which are causing delays.

Help shape Selwyn’s future

environment and win!

We are now surveying our community on what you would like our

district’s environment to be like in the future. By entering the survey

you can go into a draw to win one of 5 $100 prezzy vouchers.

The survey is the start of a larger project to review the council’s

District Plan. The District Plan controls the activities allowed on

different properties, where shops, industrial areas and new housing

is located and is also designed to protect the environment.

In this survey we want to find out what helps create Selwyn’s rural

feel and what types of housing and sections people would like

available in the future. The survey is available at www.selwyn.govt.

nz/haveyoursay. It takes around five minutes to complete and is

open until 4 December.

Fire training exercise postponed

A planned fire training at McHughs Forest Park from 7pm on Wednesday 23 November has been

postponed.

The exercise is planned to take place at a later date, and has been postponed as the Council’s emergency

management staff have been busy assisting in North Canterbury following the recent earthquakes.

Meet your Councillor – Jeff Bland

Jeff is one of four Councillors in the Selwyn Central ward, which covers Rolleston, West Melton and

surrounding areas. He can be contacted via phone on 027 399 9206 or by emailing jeff.bland@selwyn.

govt.nz.

What do you hope to achieve while on the Council?

I hope to see the Council complete the major commitments it has made to the people of Selwyn, for

example implementing the Rolleston Town Centre Masterplan. I would like to see a mechanism in place to

ease the financial burden that small communities face when building

big ticket items such as community centres. I would like the Council

to focus more on arts and our history - Selwyn is ready for this. An

Arts Centre or Museum would reflect Selwyn’s growing maturity.

What do you like about the area you represent?

I love Selwyn Central. During the time I have represented it I have

seen it grow, its demographics change and I have witnessed firsthand

the area developing its own identify. The 150th celebrations

reflected the community coming together to celebrate its past and

present identity.

What do you think some of the challenges are Selwyn is facing?

Keeping up with growth. The present high levels of growth won’t

continue forever and we must spend the money we receive now

wisely so we can leave Selwyn in a sound financial position with

good assets ready to cope with the next 50-60 years.

On the roads this week

Road reconstruction work will be undertaken on Goulds Road and

on Telegraph Road, (between Courtenay and Bealey Roads), with

stop/go controls in place. Repairs are also happening on Deans

Road between Auchenflower Road and SH73, with traffic controls

operating. Resealing is taking place on Milltown Road, with stop/go

controls in place. Footpath repairs will occur on Ellesmere Junction

Road, Springston, and Greenan Place in Doyleston. Maintenance

grading will occur in the Harper and Lindon Road areas, Dunsandel/

Te Pirita, Rolleston and Norwood areas.

Following the official sod turning on 4 November, work is underway

on the Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2. Site clearance and

boundary fencing work continues across the project corridor with

top soil stripping starting. Berketts Road will see earthworks and

pavement construction. Tree clearing at the Rolleston end of the

project will start around the last week of November. Keep an eye out

for NZTA’s project newsletter due our shortly.

Concert to honour iconic rock event

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PERFORMING IN tonight’s

concert to commemorate

legendary Canadian-American

roots rock group The Band will

be a trip down memory lane for

Southbridge singer-songwriter

Paul Ubana Jones.

Jones, along with Arthur’s

Pass musician Adam McGrath

and Lyttelton musician Delaney

Davidson, have been handpicked

by original musical

director and producer of The

Band, John Simon, to perform in

the 40th anniversary concert.

It will honour The Band’s

final concert at San Francisco’s

Winterland Ballroom on

Thanksgiving Day in 1976.

The tour will travel around

New Zealand and perform its

first show at the Isaac Theatre

Royal starring The Band’s

original keyboardist Garth

Hudson and John Simon.

Jones first saw The Band at The

Royal Albert Hall in London

in 1966 backing up Bob Dylan

at his infamous “Judas” show,

where he switched from playing

folk music to rocking out on an

electric guitar.

He then saw The Band,

made up of Rick Danko, Garth

Hudson, Richard Manuel,

Adam McGrath Delaney Davidson Paul Ubana Jones

Robbie Robertson and Levon

Helm in what he described as “in

their full strength” at Wembley

Stadium in 1975.

He said the music The Band

played was extremely diverse,

heartfelt music which influenced

his own career of creating

soulful, contemporary music.

“It was a different era. Let’s be

honest you know if you didn’t

smoke grass or hashish well too

bad because these joints were

being passed around . . . that was

the era it was in,” he said.

Born in London in 1952, Jones

moved to Southbridge about 22

years ago and played his first

Christchurch concert in 1988.

In his time in the country,

Jones has won three New

Zealand music awards and

has continued to perform

internationally.

He said he is touched to

be chosen by John Simon to

perform in The Last Waltz and

will perform an array of songs

including Forever Young by

Bob Dylan, and It Makes No

Difference by Rick Danko.

McGrath said he was most

excited about playing with some

of his local heroes and watching

Garth Hudson play.

“It is kind of one of those great

STAR-STUDDED: Bob Dylan and The Band during

The Last Waltz concert in San Francisco in 1976. A

40th anniversary tribute concert will be held at the

Isaac Theatre Royal tonight.

things that every now and again

pops up and keeps you going. I

am really glad I decided to make

music for a living, McGrath said.

McGrath made his career in

folk music as the lead singer

of The Eastern but also spends

his time travelling around the

country to perform.

Davidson said it was amazing

to be performing in such a

concert with legends such as

Simon and Hudson.

“The range of music is huge . . .

it was almost the end of an era,”

he said.

Davidson has made a career of

touring his music in Europe and

the United States and has

been the winner of the APRA

New Zealand Country Music

Song

of the Year three years in a row.

His latest achievement

was being awarded The Arts

Foundation’s The Laureate

Award last year, receiving

$50,000 for excellence across a

range of art forms.

STARTING SCHOOL on

Wednesday wasn’t just a

milestone in the life of Timur

Vassiliev (right), 5, it was a

milestone for Clearview Primary

as well.

Timur became the school’s

800th currently enrolled pupil,

the first time the school had

reached that mark since opening

in early 2010 with 170 pupils.

Principal Rob Rush said he

expected the school’s growth to

hit a peak of about 830 pupils this

year.

With West Rolleston Primary

School having opened this year

and Lemonwood Grove set to

open next year he expected the

school’s roll would ultimately

stabilise at between 750 and 800

pupils.

“But you just don’t

know,” he said.

“There are just a lot

of people moving to

Rolleston.”

The school had been

built in several stages,

originally catering for just 450

pupils with the addition of

further classrooms since 2012

providing the extra space needed.

Most recently, four more classrooms

were added at the start of

the year.

“We have always had space

for the children and the

continual growth and

that has been a really

good thing, we have been

really well supported by

the Ministry of Education,”

Mr Rush (left) said.

“But it has had its challenges

in terms of making sure

the classrooms were ready and

making sure we had teachers and

staff there.”

SELWYN TIMES

Sun, sea and surf on Hainan

Kate Preece heads to Hainan Island to experience a luxury resort

holiday, Chinese-style

FIVE STAR: One of the many luxury resorts in Hainan Island,

MGM Grand Sanya was formerly Hotel Gloria Resort, the first

resort in China.

Getting there:

•Christchurch to Guangzhou flights operate Sunday,

Wednesday and Friday. (From December, Mondays and

Thursdays as well.) Flights to Sanya include transfer at

Guangzhou/Baiyun International Airport. Contact your local

travel agent or visit www.csair.co.nz to book.

•Unless you are in China for transit only (less than 72 hours),

a tourist or business visa is required. It will take three to

five working days to be processed and must be applied

for in person at the Chinese consulate office (106 Hansons

Lane, Upper Riccarton), open Monday to Friday, 9am-noon.

Applications aslo online at christchurch.chineseconsulate.

org under ‘Public Forms’. Single entry is $140.

A THREE-course meal, a few

movies and a glass or two of red

later, a small travel group touched

down in Guangzhou, 12 hours

after leaving Christchurch.

The flight was courtesy of

China Southern Airlines, the

service was enjoyable, and after

a quick transfer at Guangzhou/

Baiyun International Airport, we

were a mere 90min from sun, sea

and surf.

Flying into Hainan Island, the

references to the ‘Hawaii of China’

are believable. Mountainous green

hills give way to deep valleys, with

ribbon-like rivers glistening down

below.

Around the island we circled,

getting closer to the more

inhabited eastern edge, where the

popular city of Sanya unfurled

before us. It is here that the luxury

– and only – resorts in China are

found, and where we were to rest

our heads for four nights – in two

of the area’s prestigious resorts.

The island’s assets seem to be

spaced evenly about a 30min

drive from one another, therefore,

it took such a time before we

arrived at the MGM Grand –

originally the Hotel Gloria

Resort, the very first resort in

China.

Greeted with lei-like flowers

and a glass of the best coconut

milk I have ever tasted, we were

quick to immerse ourselves

into resort life – swimming,

sunbathing and ordering from the

bar in a swimsuit.

After tourism, agriculture

is the second biggest industry

on Hainan Island, with trucks

transporting produce to ships,

which carry on to mainland

China.

Crops include pineapple,

coconuts, bananas, mango, which

flourish in the year-round average

temperature of 25 deg C.

Rice, too, is a common

commodity, which is why paddy

fields are still in plain view when

travelling between Yalong and

Haitang bays. The endemic

mountain rice is a short, fat grain

known as shanlan and gives rice

wine a purplish hue.

It is, however, most favoured by

the Li people, as a trip to Ganza

Li Village – or the Areca Valley

Tourist Resort of Hainan Ganza

Ridge Primitive Culture – is quick

to show.

Akin to our own Maori

cultural experiences, the village

provides insights into a time

gone by. Based on a village built

400 years ago, a theatrical show

with a troupe of performers, fire,

goats and ducks, showcased the

traditions of the Li people.

From the courting ritual, which

involved the woman pinching

the man-of-interest’s ear – the

harder the pinch, the deeper the

love – to the intricate weaving

techniques that led to Huang

Daopo (1245-1330) to popularise

cotton planting in Shanghai, and

improve the textile industry, it

was a high-energy show that

entertained young and old.

You can also try their

traditional bamboo pole dance

– a fast-paced skipping act

reminiscent of Elastics, yet with

bamboo poles threatening to clap

together on your legs should your

rhythm be off.

The joyous dance formed part

of rice harvest celebrations. The

food in Sanya is worthy of a long

lunch.

Island – the ‘Hawaii of China’

Juice comes straight from

gigantic green coconuts, is extracted

from corn (served hot)

or squeezed fresh from a cactus.

Meat is served whole – fish, in

particular, and the dumplings

couldn’t be better.

By the end of our trip, the menu

du jour was sweet and sour pork,

fried rice, pan-fried dumplings,

and moreish vegetables. Spice

fiends will also be satisfied, with

the hot stuff part of the everyday

menu.

To experience something offthe-beaten

track, take a trip to a

fishing village. We arrived at one

not long before sunset, joining

a raft of boats making their way

inland or heading back out, fully

equipped with rows of squid

lights hanging high above the

cabins.

The waterway was lined with

restaurants. Those workers who

don’t own a restaurant will take

their hauls directly to the fish

markets, but the rest are waiting

for restaurant-goers to choose

their menu.

For us, it was swallow fish,

which melted in the mouth after

being boiled in stock on a burner

atop our table.

This form of ‘steamboat’ or

‘hot pot’ is classic Chinese fare,

REAL LIFE: Fishing villages offer holiday-makers a glimpse of a

and the go-to option if you are to

experience any Chinese barbecue

buffet.

With four days in Sanya, we experienced

little more than a taste

for this tropical oasis. A short trip

through one of the shopping areas

brought us head-to-head with the

locals, which was what the Kiwis

craved (especially those after a

bargain or two), yet for those

wishing for a resort-style retreat,

Flowering heroes in the sun

Geraniums

flourish in

the heat

and can

make colour

statements

in a range of

garden areas

says Rachel

Vogan

UP UNTIL very recently I have

loved to loath old-fashioned types

of geraniums.

You know the ones – with that

hideous smell, which makes

some people sneeze or gag. The

intensity stemmed from my

childhood, when Nana had them

planted all over her garden on

the dry, barren clay banks of her

garden at the head of Akaroa

Harbour.

Every time a friend would pop

over and admire her garden

they would be sent home with a

pile of cuttings, often including

geraniums. As her apprentice,

she would ask me to hold them,

but the aroma would give me a

sneezing fit and seemed to linger

on my fingers for hours. But I

sucked it up, as I adored my nana.

Last season, however, I did

a massive U-turn. I started

growing geraniums in pots

and in parts of the garden that

struggle to get enough water and

attention – basically in areas the

hose doesn’t reach and in which

the soil is so barren and hard

I can’t get a fork in. And they

flourished, so much so I am now

a convert – as long as I do not

need to go near them or touch

them, we get on just fine.

Geraniums are one of the

most widely grown and highly

regarded flowers in the world.

Little else can match them for

durability and flower power

throughout the year, blooming

for over nine months, and in

some cases in a sheltered spot all

year round.

Plant breeders have gone mad

and bred piles and piles of new

hybrid varieties. Many flower for

longer, have brighter-coloured

blooms, the growth habits are

more compact and they seem to

be more disease resistant as well.

gardening without guesswork

Question:

When is the best time to fertilise my Rhododendron?

Do they need a specific fertiliser?

Rhododendrons are acid

Answer: loving plants, so they

require a specific fertiliser

that caters to this. Intelligro sells a fertiliser that is

designed specifically for these plants, and is also

suitable for your other acid loving plants such as

Camellias and Azaleas. There are 3 main times to

do this, in early spring, then again immediately after

flowering, and again in early autumn. We recommend

that you apply the fertiliser at a rate of 100 grams per

square metre around the dripline of the plant (where

the outer leaves are). When you apply the fertiliser,

be sure to leave a ring around the trunk of the plant

so the fertiliser doesn’t come in contact with it. After

application, make sure you give it a good water.

Unsure how much 100 grams actually is? An adult

handful is approximately 70 grams.

Many also self-clean, so that when the flowers finish, the old blooms just fall

off and new flower stems appear. These geraniums thrive in sunny, dry spots,

and are ideal for those of us who may forget to water their pots.

5 WAYS TO USE GERANIUMS

1. Patio pots, planters and window boxes. They thrive as container plants and,

in most regions, flower from October until winter knocks on the door in June.

2. En masse. Create colourful bedding displays. Allow 50cm between plants.

3. Hanging baskets. The tumbling and ground-hugging varieties make

brilliant basket cases. Make sure the basket has plenty of root room.

4. Walls of colour. Look for the climbing varieties to cover banks and walls in

cloaks of colour. Initially, they may need support to help them cling.

5. Indoor plants. Every now and again, rinse them under the hose or shower

to freshen up the leaves and they will more than likely bloom all year round.

TREAT THEM MEAN

Sounds terrible, but the less you feed geraniums, in terms of fertiliser, the

better they seem to bloom. Therefore not a lot of extra food is required.

GERANIUMS FOR FREE

Geraniums easily root from cuttings or snippets taken from plants. Simply

remove the lower leaves and place into a glass of water or pottle of seed-raising

mix and within four to six weeks roots will appear.

OFF WITH THEIR HEADS

Pluck the tips out of new plants to encourage more side branching. These tips

can be used as cuttings.

DID YOU KNOW?

Numerous types of geraniums exist, well over 400 species; a few include ivy,

zonal, regal, cranesbill and numerous cultivars and named hybrids.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT ‘Fairy White Blush’ is a pretty wee

gem. It commands your attention with its multi-toned blooms; Look

for tumbling types to plant in baskets and window boxes; ‘Vancouver

Centennial’ has bright carmine red flowers and wonderfully contrasting

green and plum coloured leaves; Pac geraniums are bred to flower for

a longer period, making them reliable container options.

OPPOSITE PAGE Flowering for over nine months of the year, geraniums

pack a punch when planted en masse.

SummEr

is almost here!

LET’S GET

GardEninG

And hopefully it brings with it some warmer

and sunnier days. The downside to this weather

however is that our gardens can pack a punch with

a serious lack of rain, hot days and the potential for

water restrictions. If you haven’t done so already,

now is the time to get the garden sorted for the

summer heat.

Keep on top of the watering

A good soak of water every few days is ideal. A light

sprinkle each day is pretty ineffective and can cause

the plants to only search near the surface for the

water. Deep watering helps to encourage the plants

to search further down for the water, which reduces

the chances of the plant’s roots drying out.

These are also on our website, so have a look on

there, or better still, come and see us and we can

show you what we have!

Planting Veggies!

Growing your own veggies is great. Not only is it

really handy to just pop out the door and grab some

when you need them, you also have the satisfaction

of knowing you have grown them yourself, in

top growing mixes. Our Veggie Garden Mix is an

excellent option, as is our Garden Soil Mix. Have a

chat to our team and they will point you in the right

direction for what growing mix you need for the

types of veggies you are planting.

add the bark!

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 head to our website

www.igro.co.nz. If bark isn’t your thing, then we

have a great range of stones, chips and pebbles.

Have a go planting some of these:

SELWYN TIMES

It’s time for high tea

Before coffee’s availability and

popularity, tea was England’s

drink of choice.

In the 18th and 19th centuries,

‘high tea’ was an evening meal for

the working class. It comprised

bread, vegetables, cheese, crackers,

or a pie and occasionally meat.

Tea, which was a relatively

expensive beverage, was drunk

from a mug.

The upper classes had two meals

a day – breakfast and dinner

around eight o’clock at night.

To tide them over, afternoon tea

became fashionable in the 19th

century, served between four and

six o’clock.

When this tradition began

is questionable, with some

suggestions that it may have been

in France, as early as the 1600s.

Afternoon tea was a social event

with a small snack served to tide

one over until the evening meal

which was a protracted affair.

The term ‘high tea’ is thought

to have been coined due to the

different seating arrangements.

The working classes ate their meal

at a higher dining table whereas

afternoon or ‘low’ tea as it was also

called, was shared sitting in low

lounge chairs.

The adoption of the term ‘high

tea’ was a ‘trickle up’ effect, when

the upper classes used it to refer to

a more filling meal that servants

prepared in advance, when they

could not be present to serve a hot

dinner. Added to the traditional

afternoon tea, were cold dishes of

game, fish and fruit.

The correct way to hold a tea

cup was with the thumb and

index fingers where no handle or

by the fingers on both sides of the

handle of the cup. In each case, the

little finger was stretched out to

maintain balance while the tea was

sipped.

Frenchwoman, Madame de la

Sablie was said to have introduced

the practice of adding milk to

tea in the 17th century; a custom

readily adopted by the English.

However, while tea was a popular

drink on the continent, the

English were the main tea traders.

Today people gather for special

occasions to share afternoon tea

treats, now referred to as high tea.

In New Zealand, sweet treats and

sometimes savouries are served as

high tea, generally in the afternoon

though it might be at any time of

the day. A Scottish high tea usually

consists of muffins, scones and

savouries.

In America, there are three types

of high tea: ‘cream tea’ which in

British terms is a Devonshire tea

of tea with scones, jam and cream;

‘light tea’ consisting of tea, scones

and sweets; or ‘full tea’ that has

savouries and dessert as well.

In Britain, a modern high tea

may have three courses starting

with savouries, petite sandwiches

and appetisers followed by scones

with jam and Devonshire or

clotted cream, then sweet pastries,

cakes, biscuits and sweets.

Tea served at high teas today

may be the traditional English

breakfast, Earl Grey or another

brew from tea leaves, herbs or

dried fruits. Of course, it is now

perfectly acceptable to drink coffee

during one’s modern day ‘high tea’.

High tea in

both Britain &

America may

include scones,

jam & cream.

Sweet treats

are now

synonymous

with high teas.

Fruit teas

are also now

served at a

high tea.

Adding colour to the garden

Trees and shrubs provide a wonderful

greenbelt around a property; many also

add colour as they flower, fruit or the

leaves change colour turning yellow,

orange or red in autumn.

A garden with colour has a special

beauty.

While most plants flower, some offer

more brilliance and ‘wow’ factor than

others.

The slow evergreen growing

Rhododendrons and Camellias put on a

stunning show and are also relatively easy

care. Rhododendron varieties can grow

as low as fifty centimetres and up to high

bushy trees of five metres. Their flowers

may be white, pink, red, orange, yellow

or mauve; forming anytime between

September and November. Camellias

generally have pink to red flowers and

range in height from one and a half, to six

metres.

Mixing up deciduous, evergreen and

flowering plants adds interest to a garden

and there is likely to be some display of

colour throughout the year. Supporting

this can be ornamental red or silver

Maples planted in a sunny or partly shady

spot and Photinia that offer a display of

red leaves for most of the year. In dry

spots, Leucadendrons will offer colour

with their yellow or red leaves with the

hardy ‘Safari Sunset’ variety which may

grow as high as ten metres putting on an

impressive show of red.

With spring, deciduous Magnolias

flower before soft fresh green leaves form.

Perhaps more impressive when flowering

than its evergreen relative, the latter has in

its favour lush deep green leaves.

This is the time when your garden is

most colourful. Rhododendrons and

Camellias put on a show, Clematis vines

serve up large white, pink or mauve

flowers and fruit and blossom trees such

as flowering cherries and currants present

a sensational display until the northwest

winds whip through.

Other shrubs that are ideal for a spring

showcase are the deciduous Cornus which

has a variegated form, Lilac, Rosemary

and Forsythia, the latter being covered in

bright yellow flowers before leafing.

Lower growing frost tolerant, easy

care evergreens such the Hawthorne,

Berberis along with fragrant Lavenders

and Daphne will also look good. Taller

hardy and popular shrubs include the

native Hebe, Pieris Japonica with its

drooping clusters of white bell-like

flowers, Viburnums and Bottlebrush,

which serves up bright red flowers on

Christmas to complement the lillies in the

garden. Higher flowering growers that will

also attract native Bellbirds are Kowhai,

Grevilleas and Banksias (noting that not

all varieties of the latter two are frost

tolerant).

Autumn will still have colour if there

are Fuchsias, Pineapple Sage, Dahlias and

Chrysanthemums. All die back in winter

but will put on a show of pinks and reds

through to yellows, complementing the

turning leaves on deciduous trees and

shrubs, with interesting bark and trunk

formations taking their place to form a

different landscape. Underneath, the easy

to grow Hellebores will add a touch of

colour over winter.

Now is a good time to put in the plants

that will bring colour to your garden

throughout the year.

Furniture for the outdoors

Outdoor spaces have become an

important part of the home, with classy

outdoor dining and lounge suites joining

the more traditional garden bench,

hammock and swinging seat.

Furniture for the outdoors comes in all

shapes, sizes and materials with many

attractive options available.

When choosing outdoor furniture,

consider the family’s needs and where

it will be placed. How many people will

regularly share the seating? Will the

furniture be exposed to the elements or be

under cover and what will the furniture’s

main purpose be?

If the furniture will be truly outdoors

then wooden furniture which can be reoiled

or stained may weather better than

upholstered or darker coloured woven

rattan chairs.

Seating capacity is also significant

as is the furniture’s sturdiness if lanky

male teenagers reside in the home.

However, where large groups are regularly

entertained, a supply of stackable chairs or

asking people to bring camp chairs might

suffice.

Loose cushions will need storing

especially over winter and purchasing

a chest that lives on the deck or patio

may take care of this and also hold extra

brightly coloured cushions and throws.

Foot stools and coffee tables are popular

additions to the outdoor setting with

novel variations on the theme available,

such as a coffee table with a small fire pit.

As with braziers, summer fire bans may

preclude the use of these at times. A safer

option for gaining warmth on those cooler

Canterbury nights may be an outdoor gas

heater.

Along with formal dining and lounge

suites, an egg chair or swinging settee

might be placed on the patio or deck,

perhaps outside the main bedroom for a

tête-à-tête moment while a small table and

chairs could be sited to catch the morning

sun for breakfast or a coffee break.

Budget need not be an issue. The price

of new furniture varies as does the size

and quality while second hand furniture

is available, with the Internet a good

place to search. Some is like new while

other pieces need re-staining, painting or

repairs but cost a fraction of the price of

new.

You might also construct your own

outdoor furniture using Manuka, recycled

wood or pallets, or recycle other objects

for tables and seats. These can augment

and add interest to your outdoor spaces.

If your property boasts tall trees, why

not string a hammock between two for

an affordable place to chill, away from

the heat of the day. Around the garden,

a wooden or cast iron/wood two-seater

might also be placed in a sheltered

secluded spot.

Lastly, if cleaning is not a favourite

pastime, consider the furniture’s

composition. A hose down is likely to take

care of dust but when rain water gathers

and sits on the furniture it can lead to

mould and lichen while insects can be

a problem when they make their home

in outdoor furniture with some serious

scrubbing required especially where it is a

woven material.

A wooden seat

might be placed

in a sheltered

secluded spot.

A small table

and chairs could

be sited in a

sunny spot for a

coffee break.

Dining suites

are now a

popular in

outdoor spaces.

Eliminate bird spouting issues

Birds can be an issue around the home;

nesting in all kinds of places including

roof gutters and under the eaves by

accessing the roof cavity through the

spouting.

Once inside the roof, birds create a fire

hazard as they bring material in, to build

their nests while their eggs and hatchlings

attract rats and mice.

In the spouting, birds are a problem as

they use grass and twigs to build a nest.

This clogs up the gutters causing rain

water to overflow and seep under the roof

with the potential for water damage to the

home.

Birds also like to sit on the edge of a

roof and their droppings fall on walls,

windows and paths.

“All these problems are avoided with the

simple installation of Gutter Guard,” says

Rohan, owner of Gum Leaf, South Island

suppliers for Gutter Guard.

“Gutter Guard prevents birds from

nesting in spouting and under the roof.

It also takes away a comfortable roosting

area. As the birds cannot sit naturally

along the roof edge, they tend to leave a

house altogether. With no bird mess or

droppings, a home looks tidier and there

is less work in keeping walls and windows

clean.”

Gutter Guard is an expanded steel mesh

product that has a surface like a cheese

grater. It is produced from the same

material as Coloursteel roofing so will last

as long as the roof itself and as it comes in

the same range of colours, can be matched

to blend beautifully with the roof of a

home making it aesthetically pleasing.

Gutter Guard’s louvered cheese grater

surface ensures that leaf litter and tree

debris slides right over top, keeping it out

of the spouting and taking away the need

to regularly clean out the spouting.

Come winter you will also be pleased

to have Gutter Guard as it strengthens

the spouting to stand up to the weight of

snow.

Gum Leaf supply and install Gutter

Guard. For those into do-it-yourself,

Gutter Guard can be purchased direct

from Gum Leaf with the information

videos at http://gumleaf.co.nz/ making

installation a straightforward process.

Rohan is available six days a week

and goes out of his way to be accessible

to clients. If for some reason you do

not reach him immediately, just leave a

message. He will call you back very soon.

Rohan also endeavours to call on clients

within a day, offering free no obligation

advice and a quote at the time of calling.

His team are usually on the job within

7-10 days, completing installation in one

to two days (depending on the size of

the home). They will also travel to a job

whether in North Canterbury or Oamaru.

It is no wonder that Gum Leaf has many

happy customers who have found Gutter

Guard a worthwhile addition to their

home.

Big changes for local established business

The team at Intelligro are settled into

their bright new spacious retail outlet,

where there is a great range of gardening

and landscaping supplies available.

Intelligro can now be accessed from the

Main South Road or its new entrance off

Weedons Ross Road which is an easier

and safer way to turn into their premises.

Located further back from their original

site, Intelligro which is now closer to the

railway line, has been gearing up for the

Southern Motorway extension, which

will ultimately lead to the firm’s entrance

being just from Weedons Ross Road.

Intelligro is recognised in the Selwyn

area for supplying both home gardeners

and commercial landscapers. They carry

top quality growing mixes such as their

superior vegetable garden mix, screened

soil, and a wide variety of barks and

mulches to help retain moisture in the

garden over summer. There is also a great

selection of stones, chips and pebbles that

will enhance any landscaping project.

Their selection of fertilisers and other

bagged products includes nutritious

organic compost that Intelligro makes

from locally sourced materials. This

compost will not only improve crop yield

but also assist with plant health.

Specialist products available include:

Bio Filter, swale and drainage mixes,

builders’ mix and crusher dust such as

their AP40 which packs down hard for

paths and driveways, structural soil

mix and specialty growing mixes. Their

laboratory technician will organise the

production of a mix to meet an architect’s

or engineer’s specifications.

The best part is that Intelligro is open

seven days a week so if you wake up on

a Saturday and feel like overhauling the

garden, landscaping and garden supplies

are just down the road. They supply by the

trailer load as a bulk scoop or in bag lots

and there are trailers for hire if needed.

Join up to Intelligro’s VIP club to receive

their regular garden newsletters. This

includes lots of information on gardening

and landscaping along with details on

products available. You will also receive

notification of their monthly specials. Sign

up when you next visit Intelligro or join

on-line via their website, intelligro.co.nz

where you can also purchase direct.

With Christmas approaching, a novel

gift idea is an Intelligro gift voucher. These

SELWYN TIMES

can be purchased in-store; available in any

dollar amount and valid for two years.

Intelligro is open seven days a week

(with extended weekend hours during

Looking for a property – what really counts?

You are in the market for a new property,

scrolling the Internet, examining properties for

sale and zeroing in on those with potential. They

might be in locations that offer cheaper land,

larger houses, or convenience to work or school.

You may have visited show homes and open

homes becoming confused, overwhelmed or

swept away with emotional factors like having

everything new, or extra features such as three

car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the features

that you need, considering:

• Family space – Is there room for the

children to play indoors and for television and

entertainment units? Should this be open plan or

separated?

• Kitchen – What needs to be in your kitchen?

How serious are you about a butler’s pantry? Is

it a whim or something that offers a practical

solution to the way you use your kitchen?

• Bedroom sizes – What are optimum sizes?

Smaller bedrooms may translate to slightly

lower building costs while extra space can be

useful. When looking at existing homes, consider

whether the size of each bedroom is sufficient.

• Garaging – A standard double garage once

two cars are parked there offers little space for the

toys. What toys do you have and could they live

with the lawnmower in a garden shed, a cheaper

option to three car garaging? If the budget allows

and a larger garage with workshop is important,

make it a selection priority.

• Size of land – Lifestyle properties offer

space for children, pets, hobbies, an expansive

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

garden and perhaps a home-run business but

they require work so are not for everyone and a

compact section might be more sensible if a tight

budget or busy lifestyle.

• Bathrooms – Second and third bathrooms are

great in homes with teenagers and a wet shower

room is ideal for young children. A bath might

be fashionable though is often not used and its

absence could mean a more spacious bathroom.

• Laundry – Would a laundry in the garage do

the job?

• Storage – How much storage do you need?

Weigh up what can truly be stored in the garage

once vehicles are in, a preference in winter.

Garages vary in size so check the size to ensure

your vehicles will fit. Look also at where else

the house offers storage capacity such as in hall

cupboards, a large hot water cylinder cupboard,

wardrobes (check their width and depth),

walk-in robe, attic storage trusses, as well as the

potential for hooks and shelving in the garage for

bikes, tools, garden equipment and even kayaks.

• Off-street parking – How many vehicles can

be parked on the driveway? Will this space be

sufficient?

• Garden - Is there sufficient space for your

children to play or for entertaining?

A checklist will allow you to determine what

will suit your needs, the point of the exercise,

saving you time looking at properties or potential

house designs while assisting you to decide

whether to buy a new or existing home with both

options having advantages and disadvantages.

Driven

Holden Colorado a versatile load carrier

COLORADO: Major upgrade for Holden’s tough ute.

• By Ross Kiddie

WHEN MY daughter left home

and went flatting she bought a

new bed and mattress from a

store in Blenheim Rd.

Her flat was only one block

distant in Riccarton so we transported

the mattress on the roof of

her trusty Toyota Celica – transport

problem solved.

But it was a different story when

she opted to return home a few

months later, our home is several

kilomoteres from the flat and we

had the mattress to transport.

I thought I was being clever

when I arranged to evaluate a

Holden Colorado crewcab ute

during the time the shift was in

progress, I anticipated the mattress

sitting neatly in the tray.

Well, when the ute arrived it had

a big aluminium sports bar across

the deck and that prevented the

mattress sitting neatly. But with a

bit of Kiwi ingenuity and several

ropes the mattress was secured

and transported back to the

Kiddie dwelling, but it was with

much anxiety.

Nevertheless, what the exercise

did serve to prove is how adaptable

the modern ute has become,

it’s a genuine five-seater and has

deck space which lends itself to

multiple uses.

The Colorado has just had a

major upgrade from Holden, so

much so that it could be considered

a new model. Yes, the engine

and driveline is pretty much a

carryover, but the interior has had

a major refresh, and the exterior

gets a few cosmetic enhancements.

As before, the Colorado lands

in a multitude of two and fourwheel-drive

variations – 24 in

total – consisting of crewcab, single-cab/chassis

and spacecab. The

evaluation vehicle was a mid-spec

LTZ with cab proper and it lists at

$62,990, the range starting from

$39,990.

Under the bonnet sits a 2.8-

litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged

diesel engine. Most Colorados

will sell with automatic transmission,

as in the test car’s case,

but a six-speed manual is still

an option. As before, the engine

has mammoth power outputs

– 147kW and 500Nm (440Nm

manual), the latter available at

just 2000rpm with solid turboboost

to the red line.

In terms of driveability, the

Colorado is civilised and refreshing

to be behind the wheel of,

it drives easily with clean shifts.

Unladen it feels quite spirited, it

will easily claim an 11sec time to

make 100km/h from a standstill

and will lunge through an overtaking

manoeuvre of 5.8sec.

Not that acceleration is important

to the Colorado’s role, but it

isn’t a slouch and is comfortable

at highway speed.

The same can be said of its

handling manners, utes are never

the best in a corner thanks to

the load-bearing suspension

engineering, but the Colorado

behaves itself reasonably well if

a quick corner sneaks up, it is

• Price – Holden Colorado,

$62,990

• Dimensions – Length,

5361mm; width, 1872mm;

height, 1800mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheeldrive,

2776cc, 147kW,

500Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11sec

• Fuel usage – 8.7l/100km

receptive to steering input and

directional change.

Up front the suspension is by

way of double wishbones, while

a leaf spring located live rear axle

props up the rear. The spring

and damper rates are set far from

firm, all the new age utes are

compliant in the suspension and

the ride in the Colorado is even,

controlled and well cushioned

from ruts and bumps.

With 215mm ground clearance

the Colorado is a bit of a master

off sealed surfaces. The media

launch for the new model incorporated

a long drive through

North Canterbury’s Lees Valley

and an off-road excursion to a

plateau high in the hills.

The off-road section was challenging

in terms of grip, rain

had turned much of the track

to mud. It was a good test of the

Colorado’s ability to put power to

ground as grip in the soft, slushy

stuff never appeared compromised.

Holden has done well with

exterior and new interior design,

it looks dynamic from the

moment of first glance, and the

in-cabin environment is tasteful

and functional. It also gets all the

trick gear that Holden is building

into its entire range these

days. Items of note include the

MyLink infotainment platform

which incorporates Android

Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity,

and all the safety kit to

earn it an Australasian New Car

Assessment Program five-star

safety rating.

Holden still rates the Colorado

with a 3.5-tonne tow and 1-tonne

payload figures, the deck area

measures 1484mm x 1534mm

which is about the industry

standard for a double-cab wellside.

That being the case, it is a serious

load carrier and it does so

with finesse. The changes Holden

has made to the range bring it

closer to car-like rather than utelike.

That combination of ability

and occupant-friendly in-cabin

aesthetics is remarkable.

And for those awkward loads

like I experienced, it is a case of

being downright versatile.

spread out with three living areas, including a formal dining room

downstairs as well as a balcony and sitting area on the upper

level to enjoy the mountain views. The spacious kitchen has been

updated to today’s expected standard with stunning white joinery

and a stone bench top whilst a log fire and three air conditioners

provide year round comfort. Generous garaging is available with

an internal access triple and separate triple garage in addition to

the 3-bay barn for the lifestyle equipment or recreational toys.

hectare planted in Lucerne which returns a small income with

this year. The property receives a daily entitlement of two units

of township water with a storage capability in two 25,000 litre

water tanks. Located just a few minutes drive from the Darfield
