Population accelerates

• By Tom Doudney

NOT ONLY is five-day-old

Hadley Baikie the apple of his

parents’ eyes, he is one of a

rapidly expanding number of

children being raised in eastern

Selwyn.

Hadley’s family, which

includes parents Phill and Tessa

and 21-month-old sister Tayla,

live in Rolleston, part of an area

identified by a new Infometrics

report as the third fastest

growing in the country.

THe area, called “southwest

Christchurch” in the

Regional Hotspots report, also

includes West Melton, Lincoln,

Prebbleton and Halswell.

Based on projected population

growth between 2013 and 2023,

it predicted the area would have

grown by 85 per cent in that time

period, an increase of 22,790

people.

Only Hobsonville in Auckland

(up 254 per cent) and central

Christchurch (up 105 per cent)

are expected to have higher

growth rates.

Mrs Baikie said life was good

in Rolleston.

“I think it’s more country-like.

You haven’t got the busyness of

the city, but it’s close enough to

the city if you needed to get in

there,” she said.

“It’s quite family-orientated.”

Mr Baikie has lived in Selwyn

all his life and Mrs Baikie had

been in the district since moving

from Balclutha with her parents

10 years ago.

After living in the area between

West Melton and Templeton,

they decided to build their

first house in Rolleston about six

years ago.

FINALLY SELWYN’S struggling

dairy farmers can expect to have

a little more cash in their pockets

– and that is expected to provide

a boost of about $140 million to

the district’s economy.

A new report from Infometrics

has predicted dairy farmers will

break even this season for the first

time in three years, with an end

to the series of low milk payouts

within sight.

The report said good spring

rainfall in Selwyn meant pasture

was heading towards summer in

a healthy condition.

“Dairy farmers continued to

struggle through the winter, but

will be sighing with relief due to

the recent rally in dairy prices,”

it said.

Infometrics senior economist

Benje Patterson said this would

be good news for Selwyn – and

not just the dairy sector.

“We have had more than a 50

per cent increase in the farm

gate milk price so far this year in

terms of the payout forecast, and

dividends from Fonterra are also

looking pretty good,” Mr Patterson

said.

“Our estimates show there is

going to be about another $140

million pumped into Selwyn’s

economy this dairy season if the

payout ends up being $6.”

WE’RE GROWING fast in parts

of Selwyn, in fact third fastest

in New Zealand, latest statistics

reveal.

When you see the amount

of housing going up, the new

schools being built, and business

coming into the district, it’s easy

to see why Selwyn is near the top

of the growth table.

Today we have coverage of the

latest figures on pages 1, 4 and

5 and we focus on one of the

district’s brand new faces – fiveday-old

Hayden Baikie.

He’s come into a world where

the pace of change will quicken

incredibly over the next few

decades with technological

advances.

But young Hayden will no

doubt take all of these in his ever

growing strides, as generations

before have during the changes

in their lifetimes.

Social media fuels

rescue effort to relocate eels

• By Tom Doudney

SOCIAL MEDIA has been used

to mobilise a rescue effort to

relocate eels trapped in dried

up stretches of the Selwyn/

Waikirikiri River.

Volunteers, Department of

Conservation and Environment

Canterbury staff and Fish and

Game officers spent several days

last week finding and relocating

eels trapped in a stretch of

the river which extended both

upstream and

downstream

from the State

Highway 1

bridge.

A post by Will

Clayton in the

Rolleston Community

Page on Facebook was

widely shared and more than 60

people commented with a number

of people offering advice or

reporting that they were heading

down to help.

However, reports suggested

many eels and other species such

as trout had already died by the

time they were found.

One person had found “78

dead eels, lots of dead small

trout, and four very big live eels.”

SAD SIGHT: Photos of eels trapped in the Selwyn/Waikirikiri

River, and others which were relocated, were shared to the

Rolleston Community Page on Facebook.

Te Ara Kakariki Greenway

Trust chairman Craig Pauling

(left), also a former member of

Ngāi Tahu’s Te Waihora Management

Board, told the Selwyn

Times the situation was pretty

sad.

He believed that the endangered

longfin eels would be most

affected as they tended to live

upstream and would be trying to

come down to Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere to migrate.

“It’s about the right time of

year for them to come down,” Mr

Pauling said.

“They could be very old,

perhaps at least 70 and they

only go down to the lake once to

migrate.”

Mr Pauling, who camped on

the Waikirikiri/Selwyn River as

a child, said the flow of the river

was not what it once was.

Environment Canterbury team

leader hydrological science Helen

Shaw said the river was dry

because of an extended period of

drought which had resulted in

very low groundwater levels.

Drying reaches were likely

to have a major impact on eel

(called ‘tuna’ in Maori), particularly

the longfin species which

penetrated many kilometres

inland.

“If tuna cannot return to sea,

they cannot breed,” she said.

“Unseasonably low flows will

have an impact on fish populations

and increase the likelihood

of getting caught in a drying

reach.”

Department of Conservation

biodiversity ranger Anita Spencer

said the situation was concerning

because longfin eels only

bred at the end of their life and

there had been few opportunities

for them to make it from the top

of the river down to the ocean,

via the lake, over the last two

years due to dry conditions.

She believed the latest migration

attempt might have happened

when a period of rainfall

briefly filled some dried out

parts of the river before the water

quickly receded again.

“That was the problem, it

rained quite a lot but not enough

to keep it flowing,” she said.

Economy to benefit

from milk prices

•From page 1

Dairy farmers had been

tightening their belts with the

low payouts, which would have

constrained some retail and

wholesale spending in the district

and may have contributed

to the number of people seeking

Jobseeker Support increasing by

6.8 per cent in the last year.

“[Farmers] are not going to

completely throw their money

around like maybe a few years

ago, but they are gradually going

to spend a little bit more,

particularly on things that they

have been putting off for the

past couple of years,” Mr Patterson

said.

Federated Farmers North

Canterbury dairy chairman

Michael Woodward said an

increased payout would give

farmers some peace of mind.

“At the moment, we are still

just waiting for Westland [Milk

Products] and Synlait to come

out with their updated forecast

to see if they are on track with

Fonterra,” he said.

“Until the last lot comes

through, we can’t count our

chickens just yet, but it’s

definitely a good sign at the moment.”

More people, more schools

•From page 1

“We just wanted to stay in the

Selwyn area, really, because both

of us already lived out this way,”

Mrs Baikie said.

“We enjoy Rolleston, it’s quite

family-orientated and everyone is

so nice here.”

The Infometrics report said the

previously strong demarcation

between Christchurch’s suburbs

and the towns of Prebbleton, Lincoln

and Rolleston had become

less pronounced since the February

2011 earthquake and the

construction of the Christchurch

Southern Motorway.

Prebbleton and Lincoln still

had “a small-town feel” to them,

but were expected to expand by

30-40 per cent each over the next

eight years.

Over the longer-term, development

along Springs Rd was likely

to see Prebbleton, in particular,

become “more and more like a

suburb of Christchurch.”

Ray White Lincoln co-owner

Steve Morgan said sales of sections

in Prebbleton and Lincoln

had been steady.

“Sales prices have come back

a bit; they had to really because

they were a bit over the top postquake,

but there is still steady

day at the new Lemonwood Grove School in Rolleston. It will become the town’s fifth primary

school when it opens next year.

interest in sections and houses,”

he said.

“There are a lot of people who

want to stay in the [Christchurch]

area post-quake and they see

Lincoln and Prebbleton as a little

bit of a village-type scenario,

where it is still quite easy to commute

to town but they are on the

outskirts.”

The report said that while

Rolleston remained a core component

of growth in the area, the

town’s population, which stood

at 10,000 in the 2013 census,

was projected to be much less

meteoric in coming years. It was

not expected to top 20,000 until

the 2030s.

However, even this rate of

population growth would still

need further substantial development

of retail, community, and

education facilities in the town.

Its first secondary school,

Rolleston College, and fifth primary

school, Lemonwood Grove,

will open next year. Seven years

ago there was only one primary

school in town.

The numbers that the Regional

Hotspots report put around

growth in Selwyn and west

Chrustchurch are huge. However,

they come as no surprise to local

residents, who have watched

sub-divisions, shopping centres

and business parks around them

spreading upward and outward

at a huge rate.

Central Christchurch was also

bound to take off soon, with

many commercial developments

cutting ribbons this year and

moving trucks a regular sight

outside new apartment buildings.

But how long will it last?

The report was optimistic: As

more businesses moved west,

it drew people to homes in the

west. As subdivisions’ boomed,

the demand for shops and business

to service residents’ grew.

as parts of district booms

It predicted that cycle would

continue.

Others are more conservative.

When asked what he thought

would happen in Christchurch’s

future, Mr Cookson’s first

response was that he was a historian:

Crystal ball-gazing was not

what he did.

But if we were to learn the

lessons of history, he said, we

should look at transport.

“I think there’s a real possibility

we’ll reach the end of the satellite

town development around

Christchurch because the more

you built out of town, the more

traffic you get going in and out

of town, so the more it becomes

inconvenient. At that point,

more people will move back into

town,” he said.

That cycle had been seen in

New Brighton, which was a

thriving shopping hub while it

was the only place shops were

allowed to open on the weekend.

When nationwide Saturday

trading was introduced in the

80s, convenience won out and its

popularity dropped.

The same thing was seen in

the central city after cars became

cheaper and more accessible.

Suburban malls began to boom,

GROWING: With new homes built in subdivisions like Faringdon, the Infometrics Regional

Hotspots report predicts a growing demand for shops and services over the next seven years.

as people no longer needed to

take public transport into the

central city.

While the threat of another

earthquake or a tsunami might

have drawn people toward the

west, he believed that had less

of an impact on people’s choices

than other factors like good

schools or convenience.

Massey University pro vicechancellor

Paul Spoonley, an

expert in demography, said there

were several things that could

dramatically change the shape of

cities.

The number of immigrants

who moved to help with the

rebuild would be having an

effect, he said.

“They tend to live in areas New

Zealanders will traditionally not

want to live in, like high density

areas they are often quite used

to. And they tend to go to new

builds, not the older, historic

areas New Zealanders might

gravitate to,” he said.

Large businesses could also

have a big effect, he said, because

if they chose to base themselves

in an area, they often brought

with them employees who

wanted to live and shop close to

work.

Hornby Quadrant development

manager Kevin Arthur said

there had been huge demand

for commercial sites in the

development, which runs

between Main South Rd and

Springs Rd.

But a lot of the growth was

due to the sped-up consenting

process, he said.

“We were eyeing Hornby

for 10 years plus prior to

the earthquakes, but to get

planning consent for industrial

development takes an awfully

long time. In one case, it took us

seven years. This short-circuited

the whole system,” he said.

Bypass won’t benefit everyone

In Brief

SHOPPING CENTRE OPEN

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

POUND RD residents may have

to put up with an increase of

heavy vehicles past their homes

daily as part of a plan to mitigate

heavy congestion in the Hornby

business area.

A $15 million

new bypass is to

be constructed

through Waterloo

Business

Park.

As part of

this work, the

Mike Mora

Sara Harnett

NZ Transport

Agency plans

to upgrade the

intersection

at Barters Rd,

Pound Rd and

Main South

Rd to cater for

increased traffic.

Waterloo

Business

Park assistant

development

manager Joel Webber said it was

expected between 3000-5000

people will be working at the

park when it is completed.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora said while the

intersection would ease

congestion, the new bypass will

send trucks along Pound Rd.

PROBLEM SOLVED: Trucks will have an easy turn onto Pound Rd when a new bypass sends

them through the Waterloo Business Park. But residents will have to deal with an increase in

heavy vehicles daily.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

“If heavy trucks are coming

from the south going north, they

will either come up Main South

Rd at least to Carmen Rd, turn

left, and then head north.

“They won’t need to with this

new intersection at Pound Rd

and Main South Rd in place,” Mr

Mora said.

The current traffic volume on

Pound Rd is about 5500 vehicles

a day.

But Pound Rd residents said it

was hard to say how they would

be affected by the bypass.

Resident and Yaldhurst

Residents’ Association

chairwoman Sara Harnett said

there would definitely be more

noise.

“I hope there are not too many

big trucks going there but there

is certainly potential,” she said.

Resident Debbie Payne said

with Fulton Hogan Quarries

Canterbury down the road they

already had heavy loads going up

and down the road.

She said it would be great

when the traffic lights were put

in because the intersection at

Barters Rd and Main South Rd

was a nightmare.

A NZTA spokeswoman

said, as of November 1, 2016,

about 24,000 vehicles used the

intersection at Main South Rd

and Barters Rd each day.

She said there were 19 injury

crashes at the intersection of

Main South Rd and Barters Rd

between 2011 and 2015.

The project is planned to take

15 months to complete.

Along with the construction

of the bypass, stage 2 of

the Christchurch Southern

Motorway project has begun to

improve congestion problems for

motorists commuting between

Halswell and Rolleston.

bypass a good idea? Do you

Chance meeting leads to New York show

• By Annabelle Dick

ATTENDING a cousin’s birthday

party as a 14-year-old led

Southbridge’s Jayde Vivian to an

invitation to take part in one of the

world’s most coveted fashion events.

Jayde, now 16, has been handpicked

to walk in several New York

Fashion Week shows in February.

She’s only been modelling for two

years and never considered it until a

chance encounter at the party.

“THere was a girl from NZ Models

& Talent at my cousin’s birthday and

she came up to me and we got talking

and she said I should model. She

gave me the director’s card and it just

kicked off from there,” she said.

Now the Ellesmere College student

will walk for the world’s leading and

emerging designers like Vera Wang,

alongside exclusive models such as

Gigi Hadid.

She’s one of two local models to

be picked. Selwyn Times reported

earlier this month that Lincoln’s Jaime

Spencer, 20, will also walk in NYFW.

THe pair are two of three New

Zealand models who were chosen for

the opportunity through the Ozlink

Fashion Programme.

Said Jayde: “I can’t really believe it,

it will only feel real once I’m in New

York. I feel so privileged.”

THe pair will spend 10 days in

New York taking part in the major

international Amit Singh Chahaun

show, two boutique shows and two

realway shows.

THey’ll also get a city and studio

photo shoot with a professional

fashion photographer.

“Going from little old Southbridge

to New York is insane. If I got scouted

it would be incredible,” she said.

THis will be the first time she’s

travelled further than Australia, and

she says her parents aren’t too worried

to let her travel abroad in spite of her

age.

“THey’re really excited for me,

they’ve been so supportive,” Jayde

said.

While preparing for the New York

events, the year 12 student is also just

trying to get through schooling and

finish her exams.

“It’s been a wee bit tough but you’ve

just got to prioritise,” she said.

Jayde plans on studying business

after leaving school.

However, the pair both need to raise

funds before committing to the trip.

THe girls will be in New York from

February 9 to February 22.

PICTURESQUE: This historic mansion in

Darfield (above), and a Prebbleton home

(right), were among 100 houses from around

the country entered in the final of the

Registered Master Builders House of the Year

competition. However, neither came away

with a prize when results were announced

at a gala dinner in Auckland on Saturday.

The Darfield mansion, renovated by Craig

Brown Construction Ltd, was entered in the

Renovations Over $500,000 category and has

previously won one of two supreme awards in

the Canterbury regional final for House of the

Year in July. The Prebbleton home, built by

DNA Structures Ltd, was entered in the New

Police crack

down on

drink drivers

POLICE SAY they will be

carrying out more random patrols

on all Selwyn roads over the

Christmas and New Year holiday

period – and the booze bus will be

deployed in both rural and urban

areas.

They have partnered with the

district council and licensed

premises across the district in

a Christmas-New Year drink

drive campaign, saying motorists

should be prepared for checkpoints

and patrols anywhere, any

time.

The campaign encourages

drivers to plan a safe ride home

if they’ve had a few drinks this

holiday season. While many

people believed drivers who had

been drinking had a lower chance

of being stopped when they drove

on rural back roads, this was not

the case.

“Police will be active in Selwyn

operating check points and policing

the roads in an effort to ensure

that everyone is safe,” Senior

Sergeant Pete Stills said.

“Police encourage motorists to

plan to have a sober driver and,

if utilising licensed premises in

Selwyn, to make use of the courtesy

vehicles available.”

Bid to make better use of community space

• By Tom Doudney

SCHOOLS, CAFES and other

businesses could be utilised to

provide more community space.

The new direction has been

signalled in the Eastern Selwyn

Community Spaces Plan which

was adopted by the district council

on Wednesday.

A staff report which accompanied

the plan said New

Zealanders’ usage of space for

community activities was shifting

from the traditional community

halls to cafes, markets,

schools and other business and

public premises.

Most traditional community

halls were no longer fit for purpose,

inflexible, poorly equipped,

had unused capacity and were

disconnected from their surroundings.

“There is unrealised and

underutilised community space

outside of usual operating hours

in schools, cafes and other business

premises,” the report said.

“This [is] a step away from the

current model which is heavily

focused on providing more asset,

not necessarily concerning

TIMES CHANGE: New Zealander’s use of community space is shifting away from more traditional venues like Prebbleton Hall

(left), and towards other venues such as cafes.

itself as to whether that creates

‘waste’, or, whether the kinds of

community spaces intended to

be built will meet community

expectations and needs.”

Businesses making their

premises available as community

spaces outside of their normal

operating hours could potentially

be offered rates rebates or

might benefit by providing catering

services.

Mayor Sam Broughton said the

district council did not want to be

replicating facilities that already

existed in the community.

“The council has traditionally

had a lot of halls but people don’t

just meet in halls, they meet in

cafes all the time and schools

have facilities that can be really

good for community use,” he

said.

“It’s about working with people

who are open to the possibility

of their space being used. That

can be good for business if it’s in

a cafe and it means council is not

spending money doubling up.”

The plan calls for the district

council to make seed funding

available as a catalyst to activate

use of community spaces. Things

which might be funded could

include the development of an

online booking system, the

management of community

spaces and the introduction of

programmes, festivals, art and

functional landscaping.

The district council’s own

Rolleston headquarters would

be made available for after-hours

community use, starting at some

point during the next year, as a

way of leading by example.

Retrofitting some of the district

council’s existing ‘not fit for

purpose’ community buildings

would also be pursued.

Schools approached in Lincoln,

Rolleston and Prebbleton

had been open to further discussions

about their use as community

space, as had Lincoln

University.

Exciting times in store for Rolleston

District

councillor

Craig Watson

writes about

utilising older

buildings

when looking

at town

centre master plans

Shortly is it expected that

the Minster of Conservation

approves the transfer of reserve

status from Rolleston Reserve to

Foster Park. This will give some

drive to the implementation

of the Rolleston Town Centre

Masterplan.

That is exciting. Rolleston

can have a heart, a centre for

it’s community and even more

exciting it will help ensure that

Selwyn has a true retail, social,

sporting and supply epicentre.

I see Rolleston becoming

like Oamaru for the Waitaki or

Rangiora for the Waimakariri,

albeit on varying scales from

our regional friends. There will

always be a reason to head into

Christchurch, but hopefully less

reasons over time. Let us be an

independent Selwyn that I think

we can be.

We received an interesting paper

last week at council, entitled

The Eastern Selwyn Community

Spaces Plan, which you can find

on the agenda page on the district

council website. The paper

was commissioned to help us

shape our towns, it talked about

(among other things) creating

opportunities within existing

spaces.

That got me thinking. One

thing that the Rolleston Town

Centre Masterplan proposes is a

new Library/Community Centre,

one that is fit for the rapidly

increasing population in the

centre of our district. So what

about the existing Rolleston

Community Centre?

The current plan proposes

that the new centre will be on

a different spot within the new

town centre and the current area

becomes another commercial/

retail area, but do we want to

put up another shop or do we

want to repurpose the existing

building?

If we were to repurpose the

building what big picture (but

low cost) ideas could we come up

with? Well here are a few ideas

I have thought of to get the ball

rolling. Ideas that I think we are

missing in our fledgling community

or ideas that might have been

floated to me while campaigning

and of course some ideas that are

just plain left field ideas because,

as a new community, I think we

need to take a few risks to make

us stand out a bit.

So to get the discussion rolling

(remember this is early days and

I am just one councilor throwing

ideas out for the community to

consider and feedback on) here

are a few ideas to ponder and

debate.

How about a district museum

to celebrate our heritage, an

art gallery to celebrate our talent,

a youth facility to support

our growing 10 – 18 year old

population, an above ground

learn-to-swim pool to take the

pressure of the Selwyn Aquatic

Centre, a boutique movie theatre

or a community theatre for local

productions to feature the talent

of our district?

I am interested in knowing

what you think? Please send me

Road upgrade may

be fast tracked

• By Tom Doudney

THE UPGRADE of an unsealed

pothole-filled road in the

heart of Lincoln may be fast

tracked after its condition was

highlighted in the Selwyn Times.

West Belt, on the northern

side of Gerald St, is unsealed on

one side for about two thirds of

its length.

The district council had

previously said it would look at

upgrading it as part of its 2018-

2028 Long Term Plan.

However, district councillor

Grant Miller said he and other

local district councillors would

be pushing to get the work

scheduled as part of the 2017-

2018 Annual Plan instead.

“We believe it needs to happen

faster,” he said.

Asked if the work should have

been done already, Cr Miller

said: “It’s an easy shot to raise,

because certainly I believe it

should have been done, but what

we are charged with is actually

prioritising roads over all of

Selwyn.

“We have increased the budget

substantially and we want to get

roads like this done but we were

charged with looking at roads

all over Selwyn, not just Lincoln

or Rolleston, so other roads have

been higher up the priority list,”

he said.

“But that said, it’s not an

excuse, and it is part of our plan

to get it done and we will get it

done as fast as we possibly can.”

Deputy mayor Malcolm Lyall,

one of three Springs Ward district

councillors along with Cr

Miller, said he would support Cr

Miller’s efforts to get the work

on West Belt into the next Annual

Plan.

“In my long time on the council

there have been a number of

years that local residents have

asked for that to be sealed and I

am backing Grant in trying to

get it brought forward to get it

tidied up,” he said.

“It also means that it gives

us overflow parking for other

events and things that happen in

the community.”

District council property and

commercial manager Douglas

Marshall said budget discussions

on the next Annual Plan were

let to happen so he couldn’t say

at this stage how likely it was

that sealing West Belt would be

funded.

The fully sealed portion of

the road north of Gerald St was

partially funded by the owners of

The Laboratory bar and restaurant,

which opened about a year

ago, as part of resource consent

conditions around car parking.

Owners Martin and Lisa Bennett

paid about $75,000 towards

the overall cost ($230,000) of

sealing the road and building

a shared car park behind their

building, also used by Lincoln

Library and Lincoln & Districts

Community Care.

ECan opposes exploration

• By Tom Doudney

ENVIRONMENT Canterbury

has joined the Christchurch,

Auckland and Dunedin city

councils in opposing deep sea

oil and gas exploration off the

Canterbury coast.

Regional councillors voted

10-2 to submit in opposition to

the Government’s proposal to

open more than a quarter of a

million square kilometres of

seabed along New Zealand’s east

coast, including Canterbury, to

oil companies.

The vote came after a deputation

by Oil Free Otautahi and

climate protection organisation

350.org Christchurch.

Cr Peter Scott and Cr John

Sunckell voted against adopting

the submission, while Cr Elizabeth

Cunningham abstained.

The submission raised concerns

over the “very significant”

environmental risks related

to oil and gas exploration and

requested that the Government

give further consideration to its

commitments under the Paris

Agreement on climate change.

It also requested that if the

Government did go ahead with

the proposal, then full public

consultation should be carried

out. At present only local authorities

and iwi are able to make

submissions.

Cr Lan Pham (right), who

tabled amendments to the submission

which signalled ECan’s

opposition to the proposal, said

the 10-2 vote was heartening.

Looking back

GOOD SHOOTING: Two men

“In the past ECan had submitted

but hadn’t really taken a position

on it,” she said.

“Now we are saying ‘look it’s

our responsibility to protect our

people, our economy and our

environment’ and it’s through

basically sending this

message to the Government

that these activities

don’t constitute

a sustainable future that

we are actually representing

the people and

letting them have their

say through us.”

Oil Free Otautahi

spokesman Charles

Drace said the opposition from

ECan and the other councils

meant the Government must

take notice.

“For economic, environmental,

climate and moral reasons,

there is no alternative but to oppose

deep sea oil drilling in the

Pegasus Basin and hector’s and

SELWYN TIMES

maui dolphin habitat,” he

said.

Cr Sunckell declined to comment

on his reasons for voting

against the submission.

“I had a view but that’s the vote

so collectively that’s our position,

so I support our position,”

he said.

Cr Scott said his

opposition related

to the process of the

meeting rather than

the content of the

submission and in

hindsight he should

have abstained rather

than voting against it.

The district council’s chief

executive David Ward said it had

not considered the matter, therefore

it had no position. Selwyn

has about 40km of coastline,

extending from Birdling’s Flat to

the Rakaia River mouth, adjacent

to a proposed offshore exploration

area.

BUDDING FILM MAKERS: Lincoln’s MADE Awards recipients on stage at a school assembly.

Lincoln wins movie awards

Lincoln Primary School

pupil Holly Walker writes

about the digital media

awards her school won in

the MADE competition

The MADE (Movie And Digital

Excellence) awards ceremony was

held at the Baycourt Community

and Arts Centre in Tauranga.

This event was described as

a red carpet event for the way

people were dressed up.

There was a guest speaker

called Will Johnston.

Lincoln Primary School did

very well. We received two first

place awards, two second place

awards and two third place

awards.

We had two teachers attending

the ceremony – Mr Prisco and

Miss Newton.

They said they enjoyed the

drum performance. The drums

were made of containers. They

also said that next year we could

improve on our acting skills.

The awards won were:

•First – Year 7-8, Stand up,

Stand up

Awards, certificates and prizes

were re-presented to pupils at our

school assembly on Friday.

Change to school camp

plans doesn’t hinder fun

A CHANGE of plan due to the

recent 7.8 magnitude earthquake

in North Canterbury meant

West Melton School pupils spent

a planned school camp on the

outskirts of Christchurch instead

of the Marlborough Sounds.

The pupils had been due to

travel to Mistletoe Bay in the

Sounds but instead stayed at

the Omaka Scout Camp near

Sawyers Arms Reserve.

Taking part in the camp was

the pupils final William Pike

Challenge activity.

To complete the challenge,

pupils must participate in eight

outdoor activities, take up a new

sport or hobby and do 20 hours

of community service.

The programme was created by

William Pike, who, in 2007, was

one of two climbers caught in a

volcanic eruption on the slopes

of Mt Ruapehu.

As a result of his life

threatening injuries, his right

leg was amputated below the

knee and he required extensive

rehabilitation.

During the camp, the pupils

completed a difficult high ropes

course at The Groynes, which

they walked one and a half hours

from their camp to get to.

The pupils also went sailing

on Lake Roto Kohatu and, on

a day which was pouring with

rain, were given the challenge of

building a bridge across a stream

with tubes, a plank and ropes.

They spent their down time

playing games, rubber tubing,

exploring and feeding eels.

PACIFIC EXCHANGE: Darfield High School recently received a group of 16 students and three

teachers from its sister school in New Caledonia, College de Ouegoa. In 2013, the two schools

developed an exchange programme for junior students. The schools take turns visiting each

other in alternate years. During the five-day stay, New Caledonian students visited Castle Hill

(above), the Canterbury Museum, the Antarctic Centre and a sheep farm. They also went on a

SELWYN TIMES

Guido Schromges

Butcher brings a corner of

Guido Schromges owns the Deutsches Eck

German Butchery in Lincoln. He spoke to Tom

Doudney about the meaning of the shop’s name,

being robbed in South Africa and digging water

holes for elephants in Botswana

What does Deutsches Eck

mean?

Directly translated it means

‘German corner’ and it originates

from my home town where the

two biggest rivers of Germany

flow together and it has always

been called, in history, the German

corner or Deutsches Eck.

What rivers are those and in

what part of Germany?

That is the Rhine and Moselle

River and they come together in

Koblenz, that is 100km north of

Frankfurt.

What sort of differences

would people notice between

a German butchery like yours

and other local butcheries in

the Christchurch area?

I guess the produce range in

general, the looks of the products

and, of course, the ingredients

are much, much different

compared to the other butchers

because I don’t use any type of

fillers in the form of starch, gluten,

mechanically deboned meat,

colourings and so on.

What would be some of your

speciality products?

On the fresh sausage side,

there is the bratwurst, the traditional

German sausage – that’s

by far the best selling sausage.

And on the smoked side, it’s the

Polish sausage, which is actually

a garlic sausage. My bier sticks

are also very popular.

What led you to move to New

Zealand from Germany?

No, no, I am German, but I

lived in South Africa and then it

got a little bit too out of control

with the crime. I was four times

involved in an armed robbery

and I thought, ‘OK, it’s time to

leave,’ and 11 and a half years

ago I came to New Zealand as

a consultant to the meat trade,

working in Auckland for a local

company.

Over what sort of time period

were you robbed four times?

I would say in the space of five

years.

That would have been pretty

scary I would imagine?

WITH A SMILE: He’s lived in Germany and South Africa but butcher Guido Schromges has

called Lincoln home for 12 years and says he is here to stay.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Well, let’s put it this way – the

last one that broke the camel’s

back was somebody put a gun

behind my ear. They make you

kneel down and then you think

it’s time to move on, you know.

There was that experience and

then I started looking for opportunities

and New Zealand came

up because a company wanted

to introduce concentrated spices

from overseas.

What led you to move to

Lincoln?

The butcher’s shop that

I bought, that was the best

option for me. Lincoln has got

a high school, a university, the

research centre. So for me, as

a German butcher, it was the

niche marketplace because you

had lots of international people

at these schools, university

and research centre. I came six

months after the [February 2011]

earthquake.

Were you looking at

advertisements for butcher’s

shops all around the country at

that point?

Because I was working down

in Invercargill at the time, I was

looking down in that region

but it was hopeless, there was

absolutely nothing available that

suited the purpose.

Germany to Lincoln

How long did you live in

South Africa?

As a butcher, 20 years, as a

child, five years, so altogether 25

years.

You were born in Germany,

right?

I was born in Germany, but

then for five years in the 1960s

my parents moved to South

Africa. But then we moved back

to Germany, where I learned

the trade and everything and

what is connected to it. Once

I earned money, I went to visit

my school mates in South Africa

and then somebody offered me

a job that was too good to refuse

so I relocated in the middle of

the 1980s back to South Africa.

It was very easy because I had

permanent residence.

What was the job that was too

good to refuse?

Production manager of a South

African firm which specialised in

German small goods.

What part of South Africa

were you in?

Johannesburg.

Before the crime got the

better of things was that a nice

place to live?

Yeah, that was in the middle

of the 1980s, in 1984, and then

HOMELAND: Guido Schromges’ butcher’s shop Deutsches Eck

takes its name from the place in Koblenz, Germany, where the

waters of the Rhine and Moselle rivers meet.

the change over came and

everything was fine, but then

somewhere around 1999 or 2000,

I had the first bad experience

and then it continued and then,

in 2005, I simply said ‘that’s it’

and I left.

What was it that had led your

parents to move the family

there in the 1960s?

Better money. In the 1960s,

the money was basically the top

range in South Africa. My father

was a panel beater.

Do you travel back to

Germany much?

Due to the age of my parents,

I have gone every year and I will

continue to go back as long as

my mother is still alive.

Do you ever feel homesick for

anything in Germany?

No, it’s too long that I’m gone.

I’m happy here and I guess it’s

my final destination. No more

relocating. I’m here to stay.

I know football is a big deal

in Europe and a bit in South

Africa as well. Are you a

football fan?

Yes, I still check on the internet

results from Europe and the

English and German champions’

leagues, especially the German.

What’s your team?

Bayern Munich.

Have you seen them play?

Forty years ago I was once in

Munich to watch a game but

nothing recently.

How old are you now?

Fifty-seven.

What are your hobbies

outside of work?

Long distance running.

Did you used to do that

competitively?

I did, but once I got the shop I

stopped. I am still running on a

daily basis if I can afford it timewise,

but nothing major any

more. Not like the old days in

South Africa when I was running

one marathon after another.

Did you ever win any events?

No, in my age category, I won

a couple of prizes but I never

won any event. It was only my

age category that I came first,

second or whatever in a couple

of marathons.

Anything else you like to do

with your spare time?

The butcher’s shop keeps me

occupied and therefore I go

running just to switch off and, if

I’m on holiday, I like adventure

sports and, in Africa, I liked

wildlife.

You must have seen some

impressive wildlife over there?

Oh, well I travelled the

southern continent, every

country south of the equator I

have been.

What’s the most impressive

animal that you saw?

The best thing was in

Botswana, in the Okavango

swamps, digging water holes for

elephants. While the elephants

were watching, we were digging,

you see.

Did you have much

interaction with the elephants?

No, we kept the distance, or

they kept the distance. As soon

as we left the place they came

and sucked everything up that

collected in the groundwater

hole.

Was that a tourism

experience?

No, no. As tourists, we went

there and we knew the camp

owner so we gave him a hand.

That was a matter of coincidence,

it was not the way we planned it.

Projects underway

for local schools

Join the Selwyn Youth Council!

Applications for the 2017 Selwyn Youth Council are now open.

Youth Council members can encourage young people to participate

in local decision making and ensure that their views are taken into

account when planning projects that affect them, like town centre

works, local parks, pools, libraries and events.

Anyone aged between 14 and 24 who lives in Selwyn can apply.

Applications close Friday 9 December. For more information visit

www.selwyn.govt.nz or the ‘Selwyn Youth Council’ Facebook page.

Two new schools open next year and work is currently underway to improve connecting roads

and footpaths.

To prepare for the opening of Rolleston College in 2017, Broadlands Drive has been extended to

meet Springston Rolleston Road and a new roundabout installed at this junction. A new footpath

has been completed along Springston Rolleston Road linking the school to central Rolleston. This

work has been completed by the Council and contractors to the Ministry of Education. Rolleston

College’s location at Foster Park will allow the school to use the park’s playing fields and the

Selwyn Aquatic Centre.

Lemonwood Grove School will also open next year. Contractors to the Ministry of Education are

now working to seal East Maddisons Road between Goulds and Selwyn Roads. A new footpath

will also be installed along the road and kerb and channel work completed. The Goulds and East

Maddisons Road intersection will also be upgraded.

Additional work is also planned at West Rolleston School which will be funded by the Ministry of

Education and the Council. This work is planned to take place over the summer holidays and will

include developing new footpaths along Brookside Road and Dunns Crossing Road by the school,

installing more lighting, completing kerb and channel work and establishing a kea crossing.

Work also recently began to underground the water race on Tennyson Street between Byron

Street and Rolleston Reserve. This will allow additional parking to be developed along the road

and a new footpath to be created outside Rolleston School. Later work is planned to underground

the remaining section of water race to Lowes Road. This is part of a wider work programme for

the Rolleston Town Centre project to upgrade Tennyson Street and add attractive paving, street

trees, and parking. As part of the Rolleston Town Centre plan the Council wants to develop part of

Rolleston Reserve into a shopping area and location for a new library, with the remaining section

of the reserve redeveloped into a high quality urban reserve. Undergrounding the water race will

also allow a new roundabout to be installed at the Tennyson Street/Kidman Street intersection.

New kea crossings were also installed at Ladbrooks and Kirwee School this term, and a crossing

is also planned for West Melton School in the future. School students and parents operate the

crossing points, with the Council and Police supporting the establishment of the crossings. The

Council recently appointed a new School Road Safety Coordinator who will be working with

Selwyn schools on a range of projects.

Meet your Councillor – Murray Lemon

Murray is one of two Councillors in the Ellesmere ward, which covers Leeston, Southbridge, Dunsandel,

Doyleston and surrounding areas. He can be contacted on 027 541 3305 or by emailing murray.lemon@

selwyn.govt.nz.

What is your background?

I am a life long resident of Killinchy. I attended Leeston Consolidated School and Lincoln High School

before working on a mixed sheep and cropping farm. I then completed an Electrical Apprenticeship

with local Firm Nairn Electrical. For the past 30 years I have worked as an electrician including 11 years

as a self-employed contractor and employer. I also have a background in health and safety coordination

and apprentice training. I am married to Maree with three adult children.

How have you helped people in the past?

I have been involved in a range of community groups including

tennis, rugby and swimming committees, Ellesmere Lions, and

have been on Killinchy Hall committee for over 20 years including

10 years as Chair. I am also a trustee of Ellesmere Heritage Park

and have been a trustee of Leeston Consolidated School for nine

years (three as chair) and I am currently in my fourth year as Chair of

Ellesmere College Board of Trustees.

How would you describe yourself?

Politically I am an egalitarian with no formal connection to central

government political parties. I believe in equality of access to

opportunities for everyone. I think to effect change you must

engage with the community and become part of the process of

changing outcomes. I have a passion for family, education, rugby,

tennis, gardening and motorsport.

Cut grass so it’s not a fire hazard

Rain during October and November has meant there is lots of

growth around our district. Conditions are expected to dry out in

December, increasing the fire risk. If you have long grass on your

property, now is a good time to either mow it (see advice below

about suitable days) or graze it.

Over summer we will be using the Council website to issue advice

when the weather means the fire risk is extreme in Selwyn. The fire

risk varies day to day and when strong winds combine with hot

weather the fire risk becomes extreme. When this warning is issued

we recommend that you:

· don’t light outdoor fires and check that any previously lit fires are

fully extinguished

· be careful when operating outdoor machinery as a spark could

easily ignite. You should also be ready to extinguish a fire if needed

To sign up to receive extreme fire weather alerts via email please join

www.selwyn.getsready.net and select the ‘Fire Risk Alert’ option.

Fires can endanger lives and be costly. We encourage you to check

our website every day over summer and autumn to see if the fire

warning (which appears as the red banner below on our website

homepage) is in place and follow our advice if it is.

Warning – Extreme Fire Weather in Selwyn today

Join a Community Committee

Elections for community, hall and reserve committees are continuing

during November and December. If you have a couple of hours

available each month, then you could become a member of your

local community committee and be part of making decisions on

local parks, playgrounds, town beautification, community centres

and other issues that affect your area.

Upcoming triennial election meetings where committee members are

elected are included under ‘Meetings’ (opposite). More meetings take

place in February. If you are interested in joining a committee please

visit www.selwyn.govt.nz and come along to your local meeting.

On the roads this week

Sections of Milltown, Main Rakaia and Dunsandel Brookside Roads

will be resealed, with stop/go controls operating. Road marking will

take place in the Templeton, Darfield and Norwood areas with traffic

controls operating. Road repairs are planned on Telegraph Road

(between Courtenay and Bealey Roads) and road reconstruction work

continues on Deans Road, with traffic controls operating at both sites.

Footpath repairs will occur on Ellesmere Junction Road in Springston.

Work will be starting on Station Street, Manse Road and High Street

in Leeston as part of Stage 2 of the Leeston Stormwater Bypass and

a Manse Road upgrade. These roads will remain open during the

work with traffic controls in place as needed. Work will continue until

April 2017. Work is currently underway to underground the water race

on Tennyson Street. Stop/go traffic controls are operating, with work

expected to continue for the next month.

A section of East Maddisons Road is currently open to traffic in one

direction only. The turn from Goulds Road into East Maddisons Road

is currently closed, but access for vehicles travelling along East

Maddisons Road from Lowes Road to Goulds Road is open.

Halswell make final of

one-day knockout cup

HALSWELL WILL face

off against Hornby in the

final of the Chairman’s

Cup knockout one-day

cricket competition on

Waitangi weekend after

beating Merivale Papanui

at Edgar MacIntosh Park

on Sunday.

Merivale Papanui batted

first, finishing on 169/8

from 40 overs. Hunter

Rowe (2-20) and Leighton

Johnston (2-43) were

the best of the Halswell

bowlers.

Steve Golding then

starred for Halswell with

SOUTH ISLAND Super

Rugby supremacy will

be on the line again

this February when the

Farmlands Cup goes up

for grabs in a pre-season

match in Darfield.

Following on from the

success of the inaugural

Farmlands Cup fixture

hosted by the Highlanders

in Waimumu, Southland,

guiding his team to 170/5.

The result was

contrasted by the previous

day when Halswell lost its

Skilton Trophy one-day

match against Sumner at

St Leonards Park.

Halswell batted first after

winning the toss and got

off to a solid start, reaching

40/1 after 13 overs, but

then lost three wickets for

10 runs to be 50/4.

Blair Cotching then hit

three sixes and a four in a

quick 22 but, when he got

out, Halswell lost another

three wickets for five runs

to be 86/7.

in February, the Crusaders

will play host to their

southern neighbour at

the Darfield Domain on

February 4.

The Selwyn Times reported

in October that the

match was in the works,

but now the Crusaders

have made it official.

Crusaders chief

executive Hamish Riach

James Pearson batted

well to score his first senior

half century and pushed

Halswell to 185 with

Pearson being the last man

out on 65.

Halswell started well in

the field having Sumner

7/2 but the home side

batted very well, rotating

the strike and putting

away the loose ball to the

boundary, on the way to

186/4.

Dayle Eathorne (2-28

from eight overs) and

Johnston (1-12 from nine

overs) were the best of the

Halswell bowlers.

Crusaders confirm Darfield visit

said the event was a

hit amongst the rural

community last year

and they were thrilled

to have the opportunity

to continue the new

competition.

Farmlands shareholders,

local junior rugby clubs

and Crusaders season

ticket holders will be able

purchase early tickets.

CHAMPIONS: The Ellesmere College team of Ben Smith, Ben Legg, Nathan McKenzie and

Ben Michael (left) won the boys’ tennis competition at the Canterbury Primary Schools’

Summer Tournament recently. Ellesmere College also won the boys’ cricket competition,

with manager Jack Dawson and players Nathan Chalmers, Jared Poole, Caleb Webber, Sam

Dawson, Brae Hamilton-Currey and Oliver West (above middle) taking the title. Meanwhile,

the Prebbleton School team of Caleb Gourley, Adam Finnie, Daniel Marsh and Jonty Cook

(above right) won the mixed golf competition. The tournament, held in Christchurch, saw

612 pupils from 24 schools compete in softball, tennis, golf, kiwi tag and cricket.

First-time win thrills Tai Tapu bowlers

• By Karolyn Boon

TAI TAPU have won

Ellesmere Bowls’

Chatterton Cup

competition for the first

time in its 11-year history

Going into the last round

on Saturday there was still

a chance that Diamond

Harbour could take out the

competition.

But when Tai Tapu

trounced Leeston 2 by four

games to none in trying

conditions it gave them an

overall score of 54, ahead

of Diamond Harbour’s 49.

The win was a big reward

for the small club of 29

members that includes

social players. A factor in

the win is surely being able

to keep the same combinations

each week.

It is the first time that Tai

Tapu have managed to win

this trophy and they are

thrilled to do so.

Gardening

A water feature has many benefits

A WATER feature in the

garden gives a different

dimension and adds value to

your home.

Apart from it having a cooling

effect that is soothing for

the soul, the sound of gurgling

water has a meditative, relaxing

quality about it.

Water can enhance any garden

and when used effectively,

has the power to attract the

maximum attention compared

to any other garden feature.

In smaller gardens where

space is a constraint, water

is best used in conjunction

with a sculptured feature or a

fountain, or a little rock garden

which could easily be the focal

point of your little stretch of

paradise.

If you do happen to own a

bigger garden, a free flowing

pond could work wonders.

There is a lot you can play

around with, in terms of plant

and marine life that can add to

its visual appeal.

The added advantage being,

fish can get rid of the mosquito

menace. To increase the darkness

or depth of the colour

of water, you can dramatise

the effect by using dark, large

leafed evergreens.

The shape and style of your

water feature will be dictated

largely by the site itself and

whether you want to just get

wet and play with the family

or just add aesthetic appeal to

your home.

Style will depend on the

architecture of your house,

the shape and contours of

the site and the character and

dominance of the surrounding

landscape. Simple shapes

are usually the best for garden

ponds.

They generally look best,

cost the least to construct and

are the easiest to maintain. If

you are unsure about the shape

or size, consider consulting a

good landscape designer or

landscape architect.

The best way to decide on

construction materials is to

discuss their various merits

with experts in hydraulics,

pool contractors and friends

with existing pools. Initial

cost, ongoing maintenance

and visual appeal should all be

considered.

Once you’ve decided on

the kind of water feature you

want, you may need to decide

whether the water is flowing

or static.

EFFECT: Where space is

tight water is best used in a

fountain. Flowing water has

a relaxing sound.

In a pond it’s easy to achieve

moving water on a small scale

with a low voltage water pump.

Don’t forget to take into account

the safety factor for kids.

Another important factor you

should take into consideration

is the ease of cleaning and general

maintenance. If in doubt,

keep it simple.

A shallow sheet of reflecting

water can be as stylish and

far less work to keep looking

good. Shallow water and dark

colours are the key to good

reflections. Whatever its size

or style, a water feature certainly

makes the garden very

attractive, adding elements of

beauty, sound and reflection to

the landscape.

Plant Care

December is a great time to tend to your

beloved citrus plants and roses. Here are

some quick tips to get your plants in top

shape ready for the summer months.

Citrus Plants

Summer is a great time to fertilise your citrus trees.

Adding these vital nutrients will help them grow to

their full potential, producing juicy fruit for you to

enjoy. Intelligro Citrus Fertiliser is packed with all

the essential nutrients these plants require, with

extra potassium and magnesium which they need.

Citrus require more watering over the next few

months so make sure that you establish a regular

watering pattern. Give them a good soak every few

days rather than a light sprinkle each day. Keeping

the citrus well-watered will give them a better

chance of keeping insect pests and diseases at bay.

roses

Make sure you tend to your roses by deadheading

them regularly. This helps to promote new growth

and get more out of your plant. While you are at

it, give them some fertiliser

to help boost their growth

and give them the nutrients

required to produce their

beautiful blooms.

application:

Young - mid age bushes: Apply

100 grams per square metre

For well-established bushes:

Apply up to 200 grams per square metre. When

applying, sprinkle the fertiliser in a ring around

the stem of the plant. Ideally the ring will be

approximately 30cm away from the stem. Ensure

you water thoroughly after application.

While you’re at it…

If you have other plants in pots, containers and

hanging baskets, give them a feed of Intelligro

Topdressing Fertiliser. This will help give them the

nutrients they need to keep flowering, or producing

fruit for you. Don’t forget to give them a good water

afterwards! If you are wanting to add some colour

to your garden you can plant these now; begonias,

petunias, impatiens, calendula, and dahlias, to

name a few.

Add some organic compost to your garden beds to

give them a much-needed boost. Finish off with a

5-10cm layer of bark to help keep the weeds down,

as well as retain moisture in the soil.

Staff shuttle service

reduces traffic on main road

A shuttle service provided by dairy company Synlait

removes an estimated 360 cars a week from SH1/

Main South Road, one of Canterbury’s busiest roads,

improving road safety for all users of the road.

Introduced on August 1, it provides employees with

a free daily round-trip shuttle service from Rolleston to

Synlait’s Dunsandel site, 50km south of Christchurch,

several times in the morning and evening.

A new 50-seat coach, which arrived on November 10,

will replace a temporary coach, which has operated for

the last three months.

“Everyone home safe, every day, is our number-one

priority. Our shuttle service supports this focus by

reducing traffic on Main South Road (SH1) and also

has a positive impact on the environment,” managing

director and CEO John Penno said.

“Many of our employees live in Christchurch,

Rolleston and the wider Selwyn region. Initiatives like

this improve road safety not just for our team, but for

everyone on the road.”

On average, 72 cars are removed from Main South

Road throughout each weekday,

particularly during peak morning

and evening traffic times.

The environmental benefit* is

estimated to be the equivalent of

planting 1255 trees, or eliminating

25 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2)

emissions, a year.

Mr Penno noted the figures would

increase as more employees took

advantage of the shuttle service.

“Our team has almost doubled in

the last two years to more than 430

people. With our next growth phase – a three-year, $300

million programme – underway we’ll continue investing

in our team,” he said.

Synlait’s transport partner, Hilton Haulage, operates

the shuttle service and oversaw the delivery of the new

coach.

“It’s a great coach that will make the round trip even

more comfortable and relaxing for employees. It’s been

a rewarding project and is just one example of how we

partner with our customers to achieve an exceptional

result,” CEO of Hilton Haulage Scott Crampton said.

Synlait acknowledged that support from both Hilton

Haulage and Selwyn District Council made the shuttle

service possible.

*Figures based on Monday to Friday shuttle usage

since August 1, 2016. Average car emissions calculated as

206.649 CO2 grams / km (9 L / 100 km efficiency) and

coach emission calculated as 885.7 CO2 grams / km (34

L / 100 km efficiency). Average tree absorption of CO2

calculated as 20.3 kg of CO2 / year.

From pig farmer

to top accountant

A Leeston accountant has

recently been awarded the

Massey University prize of

Top Accountancy Graduate

for 2015.

Lay

Associates

accountant Simon Dunlop

also received the prestigious

Dean’s Scholar Award for

2015, one of only 15 Massey

business graduates who

average A-grade or higher,

out of a pool of about 11,000

business students enrolled

at the Massey Business

School.

Accounting was not

Simon’s first career – he comes from

a farming background, where he

spent his earlier working life heavily

involved in pig farming. Having

a keenness for the analytical side

of the farming business prompted

him to commence further studies,

culminating in the attainment of

his Bachelor of Accountancy from

Massey.

Simon works as an accountant

in Leeston for Lay Associates and

is studying towards his Chartered

Accountancy qualification. He also

supports his wife Lynne with her

accounting needs in her business,

Leeston Pharmacy.

Michael Lay, Director of Lay

Associates says he is lucky to have

someone of Simon’s calibre on the

team. “He brings maturity, a strong

background in agri-business and

an outstanding academic record.

What more could you want for a

rural practice. Simon’s academic

achievements are outstanding.

“Our team has a great record

of academic achievement, Justine

Caunce completed her accounting

diploma whilst working at Lay

Associates and also topped the class

with and A-grade or higher pass

rate. It’s great to be surrounded by

good people.”

Funding allocated to

control conifer pest

Environment Canterbury has announced

the way new funding for wilding conifer

control is to be allocated and administered

in the region.

Since the Government’s announcement in

June that $16 million would be allocated to

a national four-year programme, a Wilding

Governance Group has been formed to

provide oversight of an expanded control

programme for this significant pest plant.

The group has allocated just over $5

million nationally to the programme for

2016/17, of which nearly $3 million goes to

Canterbury.

Environment Canterbury chief executive

Bill Bayfield said this allocation level

illustrates the extent of the problem in the

region.

“There is much to be done to protect

farmland, water yield and iconic landscapes

from this invasive pest,” he said.

“With another dry summer in prospect,

reduced water yield caused by wildings

becomes an issue, as does increased risk of

fire.”

Environment Canterbury regional leader

biosecurity Graham Sullivan, who sits

on an operational advisors’ group to the

governance group, said prioritisation of

infestations would guide control work in

the first four years.

“Like other councils in affected regions,

Environment Canterbury acts as coordinator

on behalf of the Government,” Mr

Sullivan said.

“Over the next year we will implement

six control programmes, with total

combined funding of just under $4 million

covering nearly 900,000 hectares, as well as

participating in a large Waitaki programme

with Otago.”

The areas to be covered are all inland,

and extend from Craigieburn in North

Canterbury to Godley and Four Peaks in

the south. In order of total funding allocated

(size of management area in brackets) the

six priority areas are:

Craigieburn, North Canterbury - $2m

(53,750)

Lewis, also North Canterbury around

Hanmer, $581,000 (295,900)

Hakatere, Mid Canterbury, $383,000

(180,260)

Godley, Mackenzie Basin, $379,000

(137,260)

Porters, North Canterbury, $366,000

(189,740)

Four Peaks, South Canterbury, $148,000

(40,140)

Mr Sullivan said this co-ordinated

national approach was an encouraging

start towards containing the spread of

Canterbury’s worst pest plant.

“Last year $1.2 million was spent on

wilding control in Canterbury and just

under $12 million nationally. However, this

was insufficient to deal with the scale of

the issue. Wildings are spreading at about

90,000 hectares a year, equivalent to nine

average-sized high country farms.

“The current initiative is the first phase

of a programme that will hopefully lead

to a sustainable long-term management

plan. First we are looking for increased

prevention and control; reducing the area

currently invaded; co-ordinated, more

cost-effective control and prevention;

information gathering; and early control

action and support.

“Early action to prevent seeding is crucial

if we are to get on top of the problem,”

Graham Sullivan said. “Landowners,

community groups and government

agencies all have an important part to play

if we are to be successful - both now and in

future.”

Left uncontrolled, wilding conifers are

predicted to:

- spread across 20 per cent of New

Zealand (the equivalent of Canterbury and

Marlborough combined) within 20 years,

costing the economy more than $1.2 billion

- cover nearly six per cent (1.8 million

hectares) of the country’s total land area

- cause the loss of native ecosystems and

species extinctions and threaten large, open

mountain landscapes that define the South

Island high country

- impact historic and tourism landscapes,

reduce water yields from catchments and

increase wild-fire severity

- potentially increase the cost and

complexity of developing pasture and

commercial forestry.

MY PRIDE & JOY

A barrel nose

pick-up

SELWYN TIMES

Steve Evans

and the almost

complete 1938

Barrel Nose Pick

up.

Steve Evans enjoys restoring old motor

vehicles. These have included his wife’s

1960 Chev Impala Sports Coupe and more

recently a 1938 Ford Barrel Nose Pick-up

Truck owned by his friend, Grant Magson.

“I first saw the pick-up when I was helping

Grant on his farm. I offered to buy it but

Grant said that because the truck had been

his father’s he would never sell it,” explains

Steve.

Four years ago, Steve suggested to Grant

that they restore the truck. While keen,

Grant lacked the time so asked Steve if he

would take the project on.

The name Ford Barrel Nose Pick-up came

from its oval shaped grille with it having the

nickname ‘barrel front’ or ‘beer barrel pickup’

in the United States.

The 1938 model was revolutionary in its

cab design, instrument panel, pick-up bed

and alligator bonnet that was hinged at the

back and opened at the front in contrast to

the side opening earlier models.

The pick-up has been a farm vehicle and

done military service at Burnham; seconded

during the war to replace military vehicles

shipped overseas with the troops.

The truck had its original flat head V8 85

horsepower engine and three speed manual

gearbox but other parts were missing.

Its original seats had been replaced with

drawers stowed underneath for lambing tail

rings and farming equipment.

“As the pick-up was dropped off on our

driveway, the chassis smashed in two.

Otherwise, its condition was fairly original

including its running cable brakes,” advises

Steve who says that Ford went to hydraulic

brakes in 1939.

“When cable brakes are set correctly and

the pedal is pushed down hard, these big

brakes will put you through the windscreen,”

adds Steve.

Steve commandeered an original seat

base from a dilapidated pick-up cab he had

bought his wife for their 10th (tin) wedding

anniversary. A seat kit was purchased

from the United States along with an exact

reproduction kitset of the deck.

The original windscreen frame had rotted

out and the jail bar driver’s door needed

replacing with a legitimate 1938 door. Even

a 1939 model door was not suitable due

to it not being the same inside, something

typical of other parts such as the grille and

dash which are also unique to the year of

manufacture.

Steve’s father, Colin rebuilt the engine

and driveline and his brother David

resurrected the chassis from four worn out

chassis sourced locally, a task made easier

as the Barrel Nose Pick-up had the same

chassis from 1936 to 1939.

Steve estimates that the 1938 Ford Barrel

Nose Pick-up has taken well over 800

hours to restore, which is not surprising

given its condition when it arrived.

“Deciding to restore the truck stemmed

from my friendship with Grant as well

as a desire to see the pick-up returned to

its former glory, however it’s now time to

finish some of my own projects,” he says.

the rebuilt engine in the truck.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Remember your motor vehicle

Long distances and holiday motoring often go hand-in-hand.

If travelling north this season, it is likely to

be a longer trip and may involve negotiating

earthquake damaged roads.

With the heavier traffic and potential for

metal surfaces or single lanes in places, your

vehicle will be working harder for longer

so it will need to be up to the job, with a

properly functioning cooling system that

will not overheat. After all, it is no fun being

broken down on the side of the road with

a car full of children, especially if it is a hot

sticky day.

It may be that there is nowhere to pull over

should your vehicle become problematic,

while finding an automotive outlet open

over the holiday period may be a challenge

and involve travelling even further. You will

also not want to be stopped by the long arm

of the law and end up with a fine because

the warrant has expired.

These are all good reasons for playing it

safe and booking your vehicle in for a check

before the Christmas rush; something that

is especially worthwhile if your vehicle will

be towing a trailer or caravan.

“Even with a current warrant of fitness,

a motor vehicle may not be safe for a long

trip,” explains Simon Wilson, owner of

Rolleston Diesel & Petrol.

Simon reminds that a warrant of fitness

inspection is carried out on a particular

day however general motoring can affect a

vehicle. An example is the effect on a car of

it shaking about when driven on damaged

roads, something that is common in and

around Christchurch or how hitting a

pothole can put a wheel out of alignment.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrol carry out

safety checks on cars, trucks, four-wheel

drives, motorhomes, business vehicles, jet

skis, boats, motorbikes, tractors, ride-on

lawnmowers and horse floats.

They look deeper than is required for a

warrant of fitness, checking the mechanical

side of the vehicle, the oil and water,

pressure and condition of all tyres and

brakes (both front and rear discs). Their

inspection covers what is under the bonnet,

including the transmission or gearbox oil,

and the underside of the car, to ensure that

all is working as it should.

Assisting Simon in this work is his new

mechanic, Alan Calder who has recently

joined Rolleston Diesel & Petrol.

“Alan has been in the trade since he was

a young fellow so has many years under

his belt in servicing and repairing motor

vehicles,” says Simon.

To book your vehicle in for a safety check,

phone Simon or Alan on 03 347 7110 or

email: simon@rollestondieselandpetrols.

co.nz. They will do their best to

accommodate you.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrol can be found

at 839 Jones Road, on the Izone side of

Rolleston. They are open: 7am-5.30pm,

Operative Status of Private Plan Change 47 –

Resource Management Act 1991, Selwyn District Plan

Plan Change 47 relates to M J Stratford’s request to rezone Rural (Inner Plains) land

to Living 3 at 631 Shands Road, Prebbleton.

The Council decision to approve Plan Change 47 was publicly notified on Tuesday 4

October 2016. No appeals on this decision were received by the Environment Court.

Therefore the provisions of the District Plan that relate to Private Plan Change 47

are operative. These provisions will become operative on Friday 9 December 2016.

This notice is made in accordance with Clauses 17 (2) and 20 of Schedule 1 of the

Resource Management Act 1991.

The Selwyn District Plan may be inspected during normal working hours at Council’s

Service Centres and Libraries at Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and Rolleston, and at

www.selwyn.govt.nz

www.selwyn.govt.nz

Maintaining Property Frontages –

Water Races and Drains

Selwyn District Council would like to remind property owners that when

maintaining frontages where a water race or drain is present, the following good

practice should be followed:

· If overhanging vegetation needs trimming, remove trimmings from the channel to

prevent blockages

· Grass provides stability to channel banks and prevents slumping and collapse.

Please don’t spray vegetation on any bank – instead weed eat if necessary

· Spray only the bottom of drains when water is not present

· Talk to Council and seek approval before undertaking any planting on drains or

water race banks

For further advice on maintaining frontages near drains and water races please

contact the Council on 347 2800 or 318 8338.

Building blocks to

a new home

As Cantabrians continue to move forward, when building a new

home, here’s a reminder to pay attention to some of the fine

details...

Anyone intending to build a new home

should have the builder’s contract

checked out by an experienced lawyer.

A payment schedule can also

minimise financial risks. Issues that

you may have to deal with include:

the deposit, guarantees and warranties

If you want to compare building

companies, it’s important to get down

to finer details such as how many

power points there are per room, the

type of windows you are having or

which paint finishes are included.

Questions to ask

builders include:

• Do you have a completion guarantee

and how does it work?

• Is there a loss of deposit

guarantee?

• Is the company a

Registered Master Builder

and does it use thirdparty

written guarantees?

• What is the schedule for

payments?

• How are the deposit and

progress payments

administered?

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust

fund?

• Will the master franchisor complete

the build if the franchisee goes out

of business

• What are the exact specs?

• Are the prices fixed?

• What is excluded from the build?

• Are there any restrictions on

driveways or any other connections?

• Can you speak with clients who

have just completed a build?

Do your homework before you decide

on a building company and you will

have a less stressful time once the

building process starts.

staging, believing that it assists people to visualise

how their lives would fit within a house they are

viewing. Seeing nice furniture in the home can

also lead to a buyer making a quicker decision,

translating into a reduced time that a house is

on the market due to a wider group of people

showing interest in securing the property.

“People buy what they see. If they see a nicely

dressed house, they can envisage themselves and

their furniture in that environment,” says Mike

Goatley from Rolleston’s One Agency.

“If a house is empty at the time of sale, a

smaller portion of the market will find it easy to

compare the area of each room with the size of

their own furniture and visualise how it would

look in the space.”

According to Mike, a staged property creates

more interest with more buyers thinking: ‘Yes

that’s me.’ This leads to the potential for more

competition and a better sales price.

Research conducted in the United States

supports this theory and while hard to quantify,

the belief is that staging could lead to a sale price

ten times greater than the cost of staging.

“Staging a house, generally puts a property into

the sell zone, ahead of an empty property even

where the latter is as good as or offers more,”

adds Mike.

Karen Askew has been staging her own

properties for ten years and for the last five years

has operated home staging businesses, X Factor

Home Presentation and more recently Signature

Styling.

“The challenge is to understand how particular

furniture and furnishings can add to a house,

changing the perspective of room size to make

it look larger,” explains Karen. “With an older

house the eye will focus on imperfections rather

than what the room could be. Staging minimises

this.”

Karen emphasises that staging goes beyond

colours and styles. While these are important, it

is more about providing the person walking into

the room with a possibility.

“The premise behind auctioning a house

is to get people emotionally involved so they

will compete to win the property,” says Karen

“Staging also provides an emotional connection.”

While most of her work is with empty houses,

Karen also advises people on how to de-clutter

their homes while adding in key pieces to present

the house to its best advantage. Sellers regularly

tell her that once they see their house staged, it

looks so good they often wish they were keeping

the property.

“We create an atmosphere that they didn’t even

realise could be created,” adds Karen.
