Drink driving mums

caught in Xmas blitz

Selwyn

motorists

ignore

warnings

• By Tom Doudney

A WOMAN who was nearly

five times over the drink driving

limit was caught by police just

moments after she had picked

her children up from school.

The 38-year-old from Rolleston

recorded a breath alcohol reading

of 1157 mcg/L when she was

stopped on Tennyson St with

her two children, aged three and

nine, in the car on Friday about

3.15pm.

The legal limit is 250 mcg/L

This comes in spite of police

having warned they would be

doing more breath testing as part

of their annual Christmas-New

Year drink driving campaign.

Constable Blair Croucher said

when the woman was told police

BEWARE: The police are out in force in Selwyn over the Christmas period.

would be driving her children

back to the police station, where

their father would later pick

them up, she objected because

she thought her children would

be transported without car seats

and that would put them at

risk.

“I said to her ‘look, you were

concerned that I was going to

transport your children a short

distance in my patrol car without

child seats in there but you

don’t seem too concerned about

driving almost five times over

the limit with your children,

plus driving past a school and a

pre-school while children were

exiting the school’ and she pretty

much just had a total disregard,”

Constable Croucher said.

“It’s extremely lucky, given her

high reading, that there were no

injuries.”

An hour and a half later,

another Rolleston woman, 35,

recorded a reading of 696 mcg/L

when stopped in the Faringdon

subdivision with her four-yearold

child in the car. The woman

was pulled over after failing to

stop at a stop sign.

Both women have had their

licences suspended for 28 days

and will appear in court, charged

with excess breath alcohol.

Several other drink drivers

were apprehended by police over

the weekend, including a Springston

woman, 54, who crashed

her car off the Lake Rd bridge

at Coes Ford on the way home

from a work function on Friday

at about 10.30pm. She recorded a

reading of 800mcg/L.

A man who crashed his car on

Blakes Rd, near Prebbleton, on

Friday night could not be breath

tested as he was taken to hospital

following the crash. However

police suspected alcohol was

involved and were awaiting the

results of a blood test.

THAT’S A jaw-dropping drink

drinking level recorded by a driver

in Rolleston on Friday (see our

article on page 1).

And even more staggering is that

the driver was a mum who had

just picked up her kids from school

when she was stopped in a pre-

Christmas drink driving blitz.

She was one of two mums with

children caught by police in what

appears to have been a fairly reckless

attitude to drink driving over

the weekend.

Getting the woman who was

more than four times the drink

driving limit off the road was a top

job by the police.

And speaking of vehicles, a bit of

disagreement at last week’s Selwyn

District Council meeting over the

plan to provide Sam Broughton

with a mayoral car (see page 3).

Council will buy

new car for mayor to use

• By Tom Doudney

A CAR will be bought for mayor

Sam Broughton but not without

opposition from some district

councillors.

District councillors Mark

Alexander, Debra Hasson and

Nicole Reid voted against the

proposal to buy Mr Broughton a

diesel 4WD vehicle costing up to

$38,000.

Deputy mayor Malcolm

Lyall and district councillors

John Morten, Jeff Bland, Bob

Mugford, Murray Lemon and

Craig Watson voted for it while

Pat McEvedy and Grant Miller

abstained.

Cr Alexander said the mayor’s

preferred diesel 4WD option was

not cost-effective compared to

the option of a small hatchback

which had also been a possibility.

He said the previous three

mayors had used their own vehicles

in spite of having to cover

the same terrain.

“With all due respect, Mr

mayor, I do not support it –

provide your own vehicle,” Cr

Alexander said.

Cr Hasson was also concerned

that the vehicle’s carbon emissions

would be high compared to

Sam

Mark

Broughton Alexander

other options.

However, Cr Bland said he

believed the position of mayor

warranted the privilege of having

a car provided.

Cr Morten said previous

mayors had not lived in an alpine

environment like Mr Broughton

and a 4WD would be useful considering

the conditions he could

sometimes be driving in.

Mr Broughton said a smaller

car would not suit the terrain he

had to travel but if there was a

suitable carbon efficient option

he would be happy to look at

that.

“A tiny car won’t get me the

places I need to be able to access

to meet with ratepayers, which

includes places on farms and

gravel tracks,” he said.

“It’s not all asphalted driveways

Do you live in Rolleston or the Selwyn area?

Do you wear or need hearing aids? Did you

know that you can choose Brenna Sincock as

your audiologist?

It doesn’t matter who fitted your existing

hearing aids, or how new/old/ancient they

are, Brenna’s expertise means that she can

service and adjust all makes and models.

Your hearing changes over time and the

settings and tuning of your device need to

change with it. If you have already invested

in hearing aids, getting the most out of

them makes so much sense.

“What people may not realise

is that it is their choice

as to who cares for their

hearing,” says Brenna “I

love what I do, I am good

at what I do and I want

my customers to have

the best hearing

possible. It doesn’t

matter if they start

and so a tiny car just does not

handle that stuff very well.”

Mr Broughton will take a pay

cut as part of the arrangement,

with $3508 coming off his annual

$116,331 salary.

While the district council will

save an estimated $12,740 a year

from Mr Broughton’s salary

deduction and the reimbursement

claims he would have put

in if using his private car, it will

also incur an estimated $15,502

on tax and running costs such

as servicing, insurance, licensing

and fuel for the new vehicle.

Although Mr Broughton did

have this own vehicle, he felt

that constantly having to fill out

reimbursement forms would be

a distraction from his primary

responsibilities.

“I think it would just make

my role simpler and easier not to

have to do the paperwork every

time I want to drive somewhere,

so it’s to allow my focus to be on

the bigger things.”

What sets Brenna Sincock Hearing apart is

that customers will always see Brenna, every

visit. “They can take comfort in my years of

experience” says Brenna. “I’m the boss, it

(the service) all starts and stops with me.”

“There are a significant amount of people

in the area with hearing loss. Many hearing

aid clinics are part of large internationally

owned networks and therefore patients may

not see the same person/audiologist each

time they visit. It’s a little bit frustrating

when you have formed a relationship with

someone and they know your patient history,

your lifestyle and then you have to explain

it again. Continuity of care is so important!”

“Customers come first and I am always willing

to go the extra mile. I am here to help

locals hear better for years to come.”

In Brief

FIRE RISK

Property owners throughout

Selwyn are being encouraged to

cut or graze long grass to avoid

it becoming a fire hazard over

summer, with fire restrictions

expected to be introduced this

month. The district’s principal

rural fire officer Douglas Marshall

said rain during October

and November had meant

there was lots of growth and

conditions were now expected

to dry out. “Unless we receive

a substantial amount of rain in

the near future, its likely fire

restrictions will be introduced

this month,” Mr Marshall said.

Courtenay pool to remain closed

• By Tom Doudney

AT LEAST one of Selwyn’s six

community pools will not be

able to open this summer and

the other five will have to ensure

they can meet new requirements

before getting the go ahead.

The district council has

decided the community pool at

Courtenay will not be able to

open unless issues around active

supervision and ageing plant and

equipment are resolved.

It has agreed to work with

communities in Halkett, Leeston,

Prebbleton, Killinchy and Sheffield

to enable those pools to

open.

However, local pool committees

and users will need to agree

on plans which include regular

water quality testing, ensuring

that unauthorised users can’t

access pools, secure chemical

storage, signage and having first

aid resources on site.

Plans will also require active

supervision in place when swimmers

use these pools. This could

include trained lifeguards, community

supervisors who have

received appropriate training

or parents, who have received

information about their responsibilities,

supervising their own

children.

The district council had undertaken

an assessment of its swimming

pools to ensure their operations

comply with the Health and

Safety in Work Act, which came

into force in April 2016.

There were no significant issues

with its larger pools, the Selwyn

Aquatic Centre in Rolleston and

the Darfield and Southbridge

pools complexes at Darfield and

Southbridge pools. However, the

assessment determined changes

needed to be made at the smaller

pools.

Mayor Sam Broughton said the

district council realised the pools

were important to their communities

and wanted people to be

able to use them over summer.

“However, as the owner of

these facilities the council also

has a duty of care to people using

the pools. Nobody wants a child

to be injured or drown at a local

pool.”

At Halkett, Killinchy and

Leeston, district council staff will

work with pool committees to

ensure that the required level of

supervision is available, which is

NOT

IMPRESSED:

chairwoman

Carol Garland

says the district

council’s

estimate for the

cost of repairing

likely to be provided by community

members and users.

At Sheffield and Prebbleton,

both busy facilities, the district

council will supply trained

lifeguards. Prebbleton was

previously a diving pool with a

maximum depth of 2.2m so the

district council believes it has a

higher level of risk. Sheffield will

only be able to open from 1-7pm,

daily.

The district council estimated

that repairs and maintenance

needed at Courtenay pool would

cost somewhere between $60,000

and $80,000. It had indicated

that these costs, coupled with the

small number of users, reopening

the pool in the longer term would

not be viable.

Courtenay Reserve Committee

chairwoman Carol Garland was

disappointed that the pool would

not be able to open this summer.

She said the estimated repair

costs were ridiculous and the

committee believed it could complete

all necessary maintenance

for about $5000.

“That is just so far off the mark,

if they really think they are going

to have to spend that amount of

money somebody is seriously

ripping off the council,” Mrs

Garland said.

Sheffield Pool Committee

chairwoman Rochelle Barrett

said the result was a good compromise

for them.

“It’s better than not opening,”

she said.

“It would have been great if it

could carry on the way it was but

unfortunately that can’t happen.”

Opening dates for the other

five community pools will be

advised as soon as the new

operational arrangements have

been confirmed with local pool

committees.

Motorway business concern

• By Tom Doudney

STAGE TWO of the Southern

Motorway could become a

magnet for businesses interested

in setting up in rural land along

its corridor.

During a recent District Plan

review briefing, district councillors

were advised by staff that

they could come under pressure

to allow the establishment of

commercial premises by the

motorway.

The $195 million project,

which will connect Rolleston

with the city, is currently under

construction and expected to

be completed in 2019. It will see

about 20,000 vehicle movements

per day on average.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the amount of traffic going past

and the desire of adjacent

landowners to sell or develop

their land could create incentives

for businesses to set up

there.

Canterbury University transport

expert Professor Simon

Kingham said it was inevitable

that businesses would seek to

establish near the off and on

ramps. He expected supermarkets,

petrol stations and larger

chain stores to be interested in

locating there.

“You will start getting kind of

businesses to set up alongside it. Mayor Sam Broughton, top right, and Canterbury University

transport expert Professor Simon Kingham say decisions will have to be made on how to zone

this land.

mini malls developing there and

it’s all to do with land zoning

so the Selwyn District Council

will have to make decisions on

how they want to zone the land

there,” Professor Kingham said.

“It has implications for people

who have moved out there because

they want the country feel

and it also has implications for

farming because sometimes the

land is good farming land.”

Professor Kingham said

Christchurch’s Blenheim Rd

provided an example of how

small zoning changes could

have a dramatic impact on the

landscape.

“When I first came here 17

years ago there was no retail development

on it and a very slight

change in the planning regulations

has resulted in masses of

retail development down that

road,” he said.

“We need to fundamentally

think ‘what do we want Greater

Christchurch, including Selwyn,

to look like in 10 or 20 years?’”

The region was at risk of

becoming more car dominated

than it was.

“That may not be very sustainable

or resilient into the future,”

Professor Kingham said.

Mr Broughton said he didn’t

think it would be desirable to

see a lot of development take

place along the motorway.

“I like having the green space

between our towns and don’t

want to see just shop after shop

between things,” he said.

“But then also you need space

for businesses to set up where

it is accessible, so finding that

balance is something we will be

discussing.’’

In Brief

ENVIROTOWN EXPANDING

The envirotown movement

which started in Selwyn may

expand into the North Island.

Envirotown groups work

to promote environmental

sustainability within their

communities. Envirotowns

founder and Lincoln resident Sue

Jarvis said she recently accepted

an invitation to visit Katikati,

near Tauranga, as a guest

speaker and helper to organise

a community meeting about

starting a group there. Out of the

eight current envirotown groups,

the only one outside Selwyn is

Oxford.

GALLERY REPAIRS

Darfield’s Selwyn Gallery will be

closed from January 29 to March

13 while earthquake repairs are

completed. Orion, which owns

the building on South Tce, had

requested that the gallery be

cleared before work begins.

VOLUNTEERS RECOGNISED

The Malvern Community Board

has thanked local volunteers for

their work throughout the year

by shouting them morning tea

at the Darfield Service Centre on

Friday. District councillor Bob

Mugford said about 10 volunteers

were present and it was a good

Battle to get funding for community centres

• By Tom Doudney

SELWYN communities are

struggling to raise the funds

necessary to build new facilities

needed to cater for growth and

replace outdated buildings.

Committee members behind

the $8.3 million new community

centre planned for West Melton

and the $650,000 community

pavilion planned for Weedons

Reserve have made a public plea

to the district council for more

financial help.

In an unusual move, district

councillor Jeff Bland joined West

Melton Community Centre

Committee chairman Bruce

Russell and Weedons Reserve

Committee chairman Peter Holmes

in making a public forum

presentation to his fellow district

councillors at their meeting on

Wednesday.

Cr Bland said the district

council needed to look at a better

funding model for such facilities.

“Community facilities are

important, they are a vital community

asset, we shouldn’t just

be looking at them as nice to

have,” Cr Bland said.

“A facility such as a community

centre, a community

deserves to have it – should have

it, must have it.”

Currently the district council

PLANNED: An artist’s impression of the new West Melton

Community Centre.

contributes 10 per cent to the

cost of new community centres

and targeted rates, rather than

district-wide rates, are put

towards the project. Such facilities

rely heavily on fundraising

campaigns and grants from

organisations such as the Rata

Foundation and Lotto New

Zealand.

However, Cr Bland said such

funding was more difficult to

come by and it was difficult raising

enough money from within

a small community. In Weedons’

case, the area only had between

300 and 400 ratepayers.

Mr Russell said the $8.3 million

new community centre

would serve a larger area than

just West Melton and the district

council had a responsibility to

ensure funding for community

facilities.

Jeff Bland

Bruce Russell

IN THE WORKS: The new Dunsandel Community Centre is

under construction.

“The funding that you have

had up until now might have

been fine 20 years ago but today

it’s a totally unrealistic amount,

10 per cent.”

Dunsandel Community Committee

member Nigel Barnett,

also appeared in the public

forum to request $65,000, which

was granted, for a door at the

new Dunsandel Community

Centre, currently under construction.

Mr Barnett said the door,

which would separate the building’s

main hall from adjacent

meeting rooms, had been removed

from plans to keep costs

down but the committee had

since realised this was a “tragic

mistake” and they needed the

funding by mid-January.

“Removing that door takes

away the whole flexibility of operation

which is key to making

this building work,” he said.

The building was also reduced

from one which could cater for

300 people to one which could

cater for 200 people, again to reduce

costs for the project which

now has a price tag of just under

$3.2 million.

Dunsandel Community

Committee chairman Russell

Dalzell said if the district council

approved a higher contribution

towards other new community

centres that it should also do

something to take pressure of

Dunsandel ratepayers. Targeted

rates had been increased by $130

a year to help cover the costs of

the new facility.

District council chief executive

David Ward said a working

group of four councillors had

been established to look at the issue

of how community facilities

were funded and a report was

expected to be completed by

February.

•An open day for the public

to view progress on the

Dunsandel Community

Centre build will be held this

Sunday, 1-3pm. The public

will be able to walk through

the building.

in 2006 and we have actually

just turned 10 recently. I’m the

only founding trustee still left on

the trust. I got involved in the

early 2000s alongside some other

like-minded people who realised

that the remaining native habitat

we had left on the Canterbury

Plains was pretty vulnerable but

also valuable. There is only 0.5

per cent of the original native

vegetation left on the Canterbury

Plains. We thought something

needed to be done and that

councils and DOC were probably

not going to get to it, so

we decided to get out there and

get on with it. We initially did

a report highlighting all those

things and saying that there was

a need for restoration rather than

just protecting remnants. We felt

there was a need to create new

places of native biodiversity.

Does the trust have any

specific goals in terms of how

much area it would like to see

forested on the Canterbury

Plains?

It’s a massive task. Our main

vision is to create a network of

biodiversity across the plains and

we have focused on the Selwyn

district. We have got such a

battle ahead of us that we would

probably scare ourselves if we

had to think in hectares. But we

have planted something like between

50,000 and 70,000 plants

so far in 10 years. Selwyn District

Council is a big supporter

and have done a really awesome

job at getting biodiversity back

on council owned reserves like

Coes Ford, Chamberlains Ford,

Glentunnel Domain, Hororata

Domain, even Greendale Golf

Course.

You’ve been around the

district for 40 years now. What

sort of changes have you seen in

the environment over that time

PASSIONATE: Te Ara Kakariki Greenway Trust chairman

Craig Pauling helped establish the organisation 10 years

ago.

and how do you feel about

that?

I remember years ago doing a

workshop with Selwyn District

Council staff and councillors

and the former mayor Kelvin

Coe, who was just a councillor

at the time, and I remember

people saying ‘what would be

your number one indicator of

a healthy Selwyn?’ I said ‘to be

able to swim safely at Coes Ford

whenever I wanted to’ and to me

that still would be a goal. I think

we should be able to swim at

Coes Ford any time that we want

and we can’t. I haven’t really seen

positive change in the Waikirikiri

(Selwyn River).

Yeah, the state of the

Selwyn River does seem to be

something a lot of people feel

strongly about.

The lake, Te Waihora, is

another issue. I don’t have the

knowledge of it myself because I

don’t have the memories of being

a kid and going down to the lake.

I remember the river more so

from my time going down and

camping at Chamberlains Ford

as a kid. But what I have heard

from my aunties and uncles from

the marae and a lot of people is

that the lake was clear around

the edges in the 1970s because

of the massive macrophyte weed

beds which held down sediment.

To me that’s quite amazing – you

could go to the lake and see the

eels and the flounder swimming.

Now that’s a dream and the

1970s weren’t that long ago.

the rivers and lakes

That does sound amazing.

To be able to see through the

water in the lake would be an

amazing feat for us to achieve

now. And just to tell you why I

think it can happen, my cousins

are from Little River and

Wairewa/Lake Forsyth, and

every year we go out on that lake

and harvest the flappers – the

young moulting ducks. We have

been doing that for the last 10

years, sort of revitalising that

cultural tradition. Most of the

time in that last 10 years the lake

has been pretty bad – it’s warm,

it gets algal blooms, it can turn

bright green like Te Waihora

does. But about three years ago,

and I have got photos to prove it,

that whole lake was completely

clear. I could see down into the

water 2m, it was cool to touch, it

was beautiful. The main reason

why it was clear was that the

macrophyte bed grew back in the

middle of the lake. It was about

three or four rugby fields big and

it had an effect on the upper end

of the lake. It was full of bird life

and fish life. I know right now

that that lake is struggling again,

its got a massive algal bloom and

it’s looking like the summer is

going to be really tough out there

for the fish and wildlife and even

the stock that can die if they

drink it. So I have seen things

good and bad – but generally the

picture is pretty bad.

How hopeful do you feel

about our ability to turn these

sorts of things around in the

future?

From the Te Ara Kakariki point

of view I think we have done a

good job restoring plants and the

birds will follow so I feel pretty

positive on that, although we have

a long way to go. We have a wee

way to go on our waterways. We

are all trying to do something

about it but whether we are making

the hard decisions is probably

the biggest question for me.

You ran for ECan in the recent

elections, was that the first

time you had run as a political

candidate?

Yes, it was. I was actually quite

happy with the 28,500 votes I

got – but I would have needed

40,000 to get the fourth [regional

councillor] place. But with the

resources I had at my disposal, I

only spent about $500 and it was

just family and my wife doing

the campaign and we mainly

did it on Facebook, I was pretty

encouraged with the result. But I

am keen to have another go.

What are your hobbies?

Probably the biggest one is

waka ama, which is outrigger

canoeing. I have been doing

that for the last 15 years to quite

Lake Forsyth. Mr Pauling attributes the clear water he also

witnessed on the lake that day to the weeds.

a high level. I have been to the

world championships and to the

national championships numerous

times. 2016 was a pretty

big time for our team here in

Christchurch, we won a gold and

two silvers at the world championships

in Australia and won the

national title at the start of the

year as well. I am pretty heavily

involved in that sport and

training kids. I have about 30 to

40 kids, mainly Maori, that I am

involved in training up. That’s a

big part of my life and I just love

it. I get to be out on the water, I

train on Lyttelton Harbour and

the Avon River regularly – I am

on those rivers and waterways

every second day pretty much.

Have you and your wife

(Janyne) got any kids?

We’ve got three kids. Mihiroa,

who is 12, Meihana, who is 10

and Tainui, who is 9.

And you work at Boffa

Miskell, what’s your job there?

Kaiarataki Te Hihiri – the

translation is strategic adviser

Maori. Boffa Miskell is an environmental

planning and design

consultancy. Our Te Hihiri team

is our cultural team and we work

with our designers, planners and

ecologists to engage with iwi and

hapu, as well as do specific work

directly with iwi and hapu.

How long have you been at

Boffa Miskell?

I’ve been here for just over

three years. Prior to that, I

worked for CERA for a couple

of years and prior to that with

Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu and I

also did a stint with Landcare

Research based at Lincoln.

So you’d be advising members

of your team on how to make

sure their work is sensitive to

Maori values?

Also, probably more so how to

engage properly. Because most of

the time iwi and hapu have their

own knowledge and their own

people and I don’t pretend to

know all that but what I do know

is how to work with them, and

that is most important.

Hororata Tartan

cushions

now on sale

THE HORORATA Community

Trust has teamed up with local

seamstress Janine Kirkby to

produce cushions made from

Hororata Tartan.

The Hororata Tartan is a

special fabric which was gifted to

the area in 2012 by the Scottish

Tartans’ Authority and is one of

the few registered tartans in New

Zealand.

Ms Kirkby said she was excited

to be making the cushions.

“I love the story behind the

Hororata Tartan and it is a beautiful

fabric which is full of life and

colour; just like our community

really,” she said.

“We have aimed to produce

these cushions to the highest

quality. The tartan is 100 per cent

wool and the fabric comes from

Scotland.”

The trust is the custodian of the

tartan and all profits contribute to

it and its work in the community.

The tartan has been designed

with six colours, each symbolising

what it means to be from the

Hororata region.

People can purchase the

Hororata Tartan products online

at www.hororata.org.nz/hororatatartan

or from Mason’s Drapery

or Hororata Garage.

Notification of evacuation zones

ABOUT 500 Selwyn households

close to the ocean or Te

Waihora/Lake Ellesmere have

received a letter with advice on

what to do if there is a tsunami

threat.

These properties are located

within an ‘orange zone’ which

may need to be evacuated in the

event of a tsunami warning.

Selwyn civil defence controller

Douglas Marshall said the

boundaries for the orange zone

had been identified based on scientific

advice from Environment

Canterbury on the maximum

credible event that could impact

Selwyn.

None of

Selwyn’s main

townships are

considered to be

at risk from tsunamis

with the

Douglas

closest, Leeston

and Southbridge,

both outside the

Marshall

orange zone. Smaller settlements

inside the orange zone include

Rakaia Huts, Taumutu, Upper

Selwyn Huts, Lower Selwyn

Huts and Greenpark Huts.

“If a tsunami warning was

issued, people inside the orange

zone may need to evacuate this

area,” Mr Marshall said.

“We have written to these

property owners to advise them

to sign up for our emergency

text and email alert system

Selwyn Gets Ready and to provide

advice on what to do in a

tsunami threat.”

Three types of tsunamis could

affect Selwyn.

Distant tsunamis are generated

from a significant distance,

such as from across the Pacific

in Chile. There will be more

than three hours warning time

for New Zealand for these tsunamis,

and more likely longer.

Regional tsunamis are

generated between one and

three hours travel time away

from their destination. An

eruption from an underwater

volcano in the Kermadec Trench

to the north of New Zealand

could generate a regional

tsunami.

Local tsunamis are generated

very close to New Zealand. With

this type of tsunami there is no

time to issue an official warning

and people will need to respond

immediately.

Three evacuation centre locations

have been identified at

Lincoln Event Centre, Leeston

Library and Southbridge Hall

where people can go after evacuating.

If there is time to do so, volunteer

community response teams

will door-knock in affected

townships and district council

and emergency services will also

warn residents using emergency

vehicle sirens.

“In a close to shore tsunami

there will not be time to issue a

warning,” Mr Marshall said.

“If you feel a long or strong

earthquake or see a sudden rise

or fall in sea level or hear loud or

unusual noises from the sea then

people should move inland or

go to higher ground as soon as

possible.”

The orange zone extends

between 1km and 7km from the

coast depending on local factors.

Mr Marshall said it was likely to

be reviewed and reduced next

year as the initial zoning had

been very cautious.

Your Local Views

Looking back at a year

SELWYN TIMES

Delicate river

marked by change

AS THIS is my last column

for the year I would like to

take this opportunity to wish

everyone in Selwyn a very

merry Christmas and a safe and

enjoyable New Year.

I hope that you have the

opportunity to take a break

and spend time doing what you

love, whether that is relaxing

with family and friends at the

beach, reading a good book or

getting out for a tramp in the

bush.

It has been a busy and

positive year. I have enjoyed

meeting many of you at events

around Selwyn during the year

and have also hosted coffee

meetings at various locations

to give you the opportunity to

discuss with me any matters

that you have wanted to bring

to my attention.

It has also been a year of

change. Here in Selwyn we said

farewell to our mayor Kelvin

Coe and welcomed our new

mayor Sam Broughton. On

the national stage, we saw our

prime minister step aside from

his role as leader of our country

and, on the international

Amy Adams

Selwyn MP

stage, we saw surprise results

in the United States election

and in the United Kingdom

referendum on whether to

remain in or leave the European

Union.

Change is an inevitable

part of life. Here in Selwyn,

we reflected on how much

Rolleston has changed as we

celebrated the town’s 150 th

anniversary. Our region’s

evolving role as an important

industrial and logistics hub was

strengthened by the opening

of Lyttelton Port Company’s

Midland Port, which joined the

Port of Tauranga’s inland port

at Rolleston.

Meanwhile, in my

neighbourhood of West Melton,

I was pleased to open the new

West Melton Village shopping

centre, which offers the

opportunity for new businesses

to establish themselves in this

growing area.

Next year is set to be another

exciting one in Selwyn,

with Rolleston College and

Lemonwood Grove School

opening their doors to students.

We will also be able to see the

next stage of the Southern

Motorway beginning to take

shape as work continues on this

important project.

If you have any concerns or

issues that you think I may be

able to assist with, or would

just like to make your views

known to me, please get in

touch with my electorate office

in Templeton. The office will be

closed for the Christmas-New

Year period from December

23 and will re-open again on

January 16.

Environment

Canterbury

chief scientist

Tim Davie

writes about

why tuna (eels)

have become

stranded in the

Selwyn River and why flows

are so low

The Selwyn/Waikirikiri River is

a classic Canterbury Plains river

with headwaters fed from rainfall

in the foothills, mid-reaches that

frequently dry up and springfed

lower reaches which flow

constantly.

Ngāi Tahu ancestors eloquently

described the river as waikirikiri,

meaning ‘river of gravel or stones,’

confirming that the mid-reaches

have always dried up as surface

water becomes groundwater.

In mid-November, there was

substantial rainfall in the Selwyn

headwaters. This caused a small

flood wave to move across the

plains, but it did not reach the

bottom.

The flood wave travelled from

Whitecliffs to Greendale, but did

not reach Coes Ford.

Tuna in the upper reaches

used the flood wave to move

downstream. They did not reach

the coast and became stranded

in the mid-reaches. As the flows

in the headwaters subsided, the

flowing part started to retreat,

stranding more fish.

In the lower reaches, flows are

very low due to extremely low

groundwater levels. Every month

since July this year has seen record

low flows.

Groundwater gains water

(recharge) from two sources:

Water infiltrating from rivers as

they cross the plains, and rainfall

infiltrating past the soil.

Most rainfall recharge happens

in winter when soils are wet,

evapotranspiration is low

and rainfall moves rapidly to

groundwater.

The two most recent winters

have been extremely dry, meaning

very little rainfall recharge.

Groundwater loses water

(discharges) through springs as

part of groundwater fed streams,

and through extraction for

irrigation and drinking water.

Cycle advocate awarded

• By Tom Doudney

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

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

Community Page on Facebook.

When the inputs (rainfall and

streamflow recharge) are lower than

the outputs (spring-fed streams and

human extraction), groundwater

levels drop – and vice-versa. This

causes regular rising and falling of

groundwater levels.

Because rainfall recharge is the

largest input into the groundwater

system, a series of dry winters causes

very low groundwater levels.

Groundwater extraction causes

some of the low levels, but it is relatively

insignificant.

The last time we saw groundwater

levels as low as they are now was in

the summer of 2005/06. The lowest

ever flow at Coes Ford was in March

2006 (20 litres per second). The flow

there in early December this year

was 115 litres per second, equalling

the lowest recorded in December

2005.

The situation in 2005/06 was

broken by snow in June 2006, which

provided a large groundwater recharge

boost.

There are full irrigation restrictions

on all takes from the Selwyn

River. Many groundwater takes are

on partial restriction and all deep

groundwater takes have restrictions

on their annual volumes. This has

been the situation since November

2015.

When you see irrigators working,

they will be using water sourced

from winter storage, deep groundwater

or large alpine rivers which

currently have good flows.

BROADFIELD resident

Don Babe has

received a Local

Hero award

for his cycling

advocacy over

more than a

decade.

Mr Babe (above) is chairperson

of the Christchurch-Little

River Rail Trail Trust and

Spokes Canterbury as well as

treasurer of the Cycling Action

Network.

The Kiwibank Local Hero

awards pay tribute to those

making a positive contribution

to their region, town,

suburb or community. Nearly

350 medals will be presented

nationwide over the next few

weeks and Mr Babe is one of

37 Canterbury recipients.

Through his role with

Spokes, Mr Babe’s mission has

been to promote the bicycle as

a mode of everyday transportation.

Spokes has a vision that

by 2020, Christchurch will be

considered one of the top five

cycle cities in the world.

The citation for his award

said he had given countless

hours in his efforts in

Canterbury and further afield,

and was one of the most

well-known and influential

advocates for cyclists in the

South Island.

Mr Babe said he was very

flattered and humbled.

“All those sort of things

really come down to good

teams and. if you have got a

good team, it’s real easy,” he

said.

“Only one person stands

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

up but the rest of them are all

there as well.”

He was motivated by his

concerns about the state of

New Zealanders’ health and

the planet and his belief that

cycling made good economic

sense.

One overall national Local

Hero award winner will be

chosen from the regional

recipients in February.

split second is the perfect game for all the family. With simple

questions that young and old alike will know the answer to, the trick is

the correct answer onto your paddle and flip it to the centre of the

game before any of your opponents.

NEW YORK-BOUND: Lincoln’s Jaime Spencer (above) and

Souhbridge’s Jayde Vivian are seeking sponsorship to get to New

York Fashion Week.

Models seek help for New York trip

TWO SELWYN models who

have been selected for New

York Fashion Week are still a

long way off their fundraising

goal.

Jayde Vivian, 16, of Leeston,

and Jaime Spencer, 20, of

Lincoln, are two of three New

Zealand models hand-picked

through the Ozlink Fashion

Programme to walk in several

NYFW shows in February.

Jaime has so far raised $475

and Jayde has raised $565

No job too big or small

through their Givealittle

pages.

“It’s quite slow so I’m hoping

it will pick up soon,” Jaime

said.

They envisage they’ll need

about $5000 each to pay for

flights, accommodation and

other expenses.

The pair need sponsorship

for the trip because they’re

both students.

Jayde’s sister Jaz Vivian has

set up a page on behalf of her

younger sister.

“As you can imagine, the

cost of this is going to be

quite high and with Jayde

being a student we are looking

for sponsorship in a few forms

to help fund this trip,” she

said.

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.

The girls will be in New

York from February 9 to

February 22.

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT: The Smithies family will open a ‘time

tunnel’ at their Waterholes Rd property.

Take in the time tunnel

A FAMILY of 13 will open a

250m time tunnel near

Rolleston to the community for

seven days in what they say is a

bid to create unique Christmas

memories.

The illuminated bush tunnel

featuring life-sized biblical and

historical figures and other

surprises will be open seven days,

starting from Friday.

The project was a family effort

for the Smithies, Roger and

Gwenda and their 11 children,

with almost everyone involved

in setting it up – from stringing

lights to creating characters and

dreaming up surprises.

Mrs Smithies said they did not

want to give too much away about

what sort of figures people would

encounter in the tunnel but

promotional material for it invites

people to “experience the wonder

of the first Christmas.”

Entry will be by gold coin

donation, with the funds

going towards expenses and

projects in India which aim to

set families free from poverty

by helping them establish small

businesses.

The time tunnel, will be open

daily, 9pm-10pm, from Friday

until December 23, at 293

Waterholes Rd.

DRAWING ON TALENT: West Melton

School year 5 pupil Yoris drew this

stormtrooper mask for a recent

exhibition held at the school. The

exhibition of work by year 5 and 6

pupils was open to the whole school

community. During the term, the

pupils have learned about how art

can connect a community and visited

sculptures on display in Christchurch

as part of the Scape public art festival.

Summer events

coming to Selwyn

Reduce fire risk on your property

Rain over springtime has meant there is lots of growth around our

district. Conditions are expected to dry out in summer, increasing

the fire risk. If you have long grass on your property, now is a good

time to either mow it or graze it. If you want to mow the grass, we

recommend choosing a cooler day to mow and having a way to

extinguish a fire available as sparks can ignite from machinery.

Leaving long grass untrimmed means that if a fire did start on

your property it could spread quickly. To reduce the risk of a fire

endangering your property, we recommend that you if you live

in a rural area you keep a clear space of 30-50 metres around

your home, or more if you can. Inside this space, keeping grass

short or using surfaces like paving, gravel or non-flammable plant

species is recommended. You should also avoid putting anything

flammable inside this space, like stacked wood or rubbish.

To find out more about reducing the fire risk on your property,

visit www.selwyn.govt.nz

Over 50 summer events are coming to our district as part of the Council’s Summer in Selwyn

event programme, running from January to March.

This year the ever popular Teddy Bear’s picnic will be returning to Rolleston Reserve on Wednesday

18 January from 11am-1pm. Teddy bears should look their best as there will be a competition

for the best dressed bear. Family picnics are planned at Tai Tapu, Springfield, Springston, West

Melton, Leeston, Lincoln Burnham and Prebbleton from January to March. Four Music on the Green

sessions will take place at Leeston, Lincoln, Darfield and Rolleston. These sessions are a great

chance to enjoy summer’s balmy evenings while being entertained by great local musicians.

Family movie evenings are also planned during February and March. Kids can take part in

summer skate jams at Darfield, Rolleston, Leeston, Tai Tapu, Lincoln, West Melton, Glentunnel

and Prebbleton, and pool parties at Darfield and Southbridge, while the Selwyn Aquatic Centre

is hosting five events as part of PoolFest. In addition to events organised by the Council, eight

Part of the intersection of Byron and Kidman Street will be closed from Monday 12 December and

reopen on Tuesday 20 December to allow the water race underneath the intersection to be widened so

it has more capacity. Traffic travelling along Byron and Kidman Street won’t be able to travel through

this intersection and will need to detour on an alternative route (Rolleston Drive or Wordsworth and

Tennyson Streets). However traffic travelling through the intersection from Tennyson Street can still pass

through the intersection.

Unsealed road repairs are planned for Whitecliffs, Malvern Hills and Bleakhouse Roads, with traffic

controls operating. Road reconstruction work continues on Deans Road, with traffic controls operating.

Road marking will occur in the Darfield/ Sheffield area, with traffic controls operating. Footpath repairs are

planned on Ellesmere Junction Road in Springston and on Homebush Road in Glentunnel.

The intersection of Manse Road and High Street will be closed until 16 December to allow roading and

stormwater upgrade work to occur, and motorists will need to detour via Selwyn and Cunningham Streets.

Meet Your Councillor - Pat McEvedy

Pat is one of two Councillors in the Ellesmere ward, which

covers Leeston, Southbridge, Dunsandel, Doyleston and

surrounding areas. He can be contacted on 027 430 3818 or by

emailing pat.mcevedy@selwyn.govt.nz.

What is your background?

I come from Southbridge and my background is in farming and

business. With my wife and children we have developed an intensive

arable farming business. Over time I have been involved in community

committees and school governance. I have also had a large

involvement in seeking better environmental outcomes for Selwyn and

enjoy being hands on, whether it is with the Waihora Ellesmere Trust or

Te Ara Kākāriki planting days or supporting Enviro schools.

What do you like about the area you represent?

I enjoy the people in our district you meet constantly who are doing

great things for their community and don’t realize how valuable they

are and the impact they have. Helping these people access money,

resources or just information is very rewarding.

What do you think some of the challenges

are Selwyn is facing?

The biggest challenge is Selwyn District Council

sticking to the business of getting things done.

We need to keep focused, there are a large

number of projects – both infrastructure and

community – to progress. Being easy to contact

and able to respond quickly to help people

get on with their lives and businesses is also a

challenge to meet, and providing efficient and

economic services and facilities for all of our

communities into the future is important.

Community Pools this summer

The Council will work with local communities to improve supervision and safety for people using

community swimming pools this summer.

The Council recently assessed its swimming facilities to ensure their operations comply with the Health

and Safety in Work Act, which came into force in April.

Selwyn Aquatic Centre and the Darfield and Southbridge summer pools, which are supervised by

lifeguards, will operate as normal this summer – for opening hours at Darfield and Southbridge visit

www.selwyn.govt.nz.

There are also Council-owned community swimming pools at Halkett, Leeston, Prebbleton, Courtenay,

Killinchy and Sheffield. Supervision arrangements at these pools are variable, and in some cases there

aren’t systems in place to prevent unsupervised children from accessing the facilities.

“Community swimming pools are very important to local communities and where possible we want

people to be able to use their pool over summer,” says Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton. “However as the

owner of these facilities the Council also has a duty of care to people using the pools. Nobody wants a

child to be injured or drown at a local pool.”

“This isn’t just a Selwyn issue - organisations all over New Zealand are all dealing with the impact of

this legislation. We are considering what actions are needed to ensure that pools are safe for people to

use,” says the Mayor.

The Council will work with communities in Halkett, Leeston, Prebbleton, Killinchy and Sheffield to

enable pools to open for summer. The Council will seek commitment from local pool committees

and users to agree to plans which include regular water quality testing, ensuring that unauthorised

users can’t access pools, secure chemical storage, signage and having first aid resources on site.

Active supervision, involving lifeguards, community members or pool users, will also be required when

swimmers use the pools.

The community pool at Courtenay will not be able

to open unless issues around active supervision and

the replacement of ageing plant and equipment are

resolved. Last summer around a dozen families used

the facility. The Council recommended that the pool

committee works with the neighbouring Halkett pool

committee so that these families can use this nearby

pool. Longer term, the Council will look at whether it is

viable to repair this pool, given this will be expensive

and there is currently low usage.

Opening dates for community pools will be advised

Southbridge Pool

once operating arrangements have been confirmed.

A Christmas Message from the Mayor

Christmas is a wonderful opportunity to gather together with family and friends we love. Its a time when

life often slows a little and we are able to take stock of the year that has been and look forward to the

things to come.

For some of us this Christmas we welcome new members into our family through birth or marriage.

For others of us Christmas will be tinged with sadness as we remember those who have been lost to

us this year.

Whatever your plans make sure you remember to cherish those who are gathered

with you, to smile and say hello to strangers, to take opportunities to heal past

hurts, and to sing a few carols and remember the reason for Christmas.

Liz and I will be enjoying Christmas in Tauranga this year with her family. I trust

whatever your plans are that you travel safely, that you find peace in the mayhem

and you have a wonderful feed.

Merry Christmas

Sam and Liz Broughton

Halswell

take lead

in cricket

HALSWELL WILL take a 45-run

lead into day two of their match

against Southern Districts on

Saturday.

Day one of the match, which

was played at Halswell Domain on

Saturday, saw Southern put in to bat

first after Halswell won the toss.

Halswell started well with the

ball and had Southern 32/3 after

17 overs before some good middle

order partnerships saw Southern get

to 135/6.

However, bowler Geoff Barclay

came back on to take late wickets,

reducing Southern to 166/9 from

their 50 overs. Barclay finished with

figures of 5-39.

Halswell were 30/2 after six overs

before James Pearson joined opener

Matt McClintock in the middle.

These two batted well in a partnership

worth 75 before Pearson was

stumped for 39 off 30 balls and

McClintock went out soon after for

a patient 47.

Leighton Johnston lifted the

tempo with a nice 46 runs from 31

balls.

However, a collapse saw Halswell

go from 170/4 to 214 all out from

just 36 overs, leaving Southern 10

minutes to bat until stumps. Johnston

took a wicket on the last ball of

the day to have Southern 3/1.

FOR ALANA Dalzell, entering

into the Ellesmere Women’s

Open junior singles tournament

was all about getting some

bowls experience.

The first-year bowler from

Coalgate joined the Dunsandel

Club where her father and

brother play.

Arriving at Akaroa on Saturday,

she had not previously

played a singles match but a loss

in her first game was to be the

only one of the day.

Being up against players that

have had four or five years’ experience

never phased Dalzell as

SPORTS

INTO THE SURF: Springston School’s Ben Airey, in the

Rolleston School’s Zoe McMeeken (far right) came second in

the 11-year-old girls’ grade. PHOTOS: KATHRYN MEYERS

New bowler makes strong start for Dunsandel

she constantly kept drawing to

the jack and making good shot

decisions.

With only three qualifiers out

of the eight entrants, Sharheen

Eaqub, who beat Dalzell 12-8 in

round one, drew with Dalzell

in the semi-final. But Dalzell

played excellent draw bowls and

Eaqub conceded an end short

6-15.

Effie Hallewell from the host

club, Akaroa, had drawn the bye

and waiting is never easy, but at

four-all after five of 13 ends, the

game was a great spectacle.

Dalzell picked up a three

on the sixth end to build

confidence and won six of the

remaining ends to win her

first Ellesmere trophy, beating

Hallewell 15-9.

She won five games in a row

on her way to winning the

trophy and is a very talented

bowler in the making.

In the men’s junior singles,

played at the Tai Tapu Club, the

men also had only three qualifiers

from the field of eight.

Nick Alfeld from Lincoln

drew the bye into the final,

leaving Akaroa’s Don Walker to

play Lincoln’s Colin Stevenson.

Walker was too strong for Stevenson.

In the final, Alfeld’s dedication

showed his all-round strengths

Ellesmere Cup’s final round

saw the Lincoln 5 team,

skipped by Lyndsey Withell,

beat Lincoln 3 to win the ladies

dropping only one game out of

the nine rounds.

Withell was lucky to have a

consistent team throughout the

competition, only having to substitute

twice. The team included

Prebbleton/Lincoln and Springston met in the third round of the Ellesmere senior interclub

division 1 championships on Saturday. Springston prevailed 11-5 on their home court.

Springston now has one win from three rounds and remains in second position in the

five-team competition, courtesy of tight losses in their opening games against Killinchy

White and Tai Tapu Gold, who lead the competition. Prebbleton/Lincoln are win-less

after an opening round bye and second-round loss to Rolleston and sit at the foot of the

competition. The interclub competition has its final round on Saturday.

Both players went for 30 runs from three overs, with Benton

picking up one wicket. Benton featured again in Canterbury’s

He was the best of the Canterbury bowlers taking one wicket

HEADING INTO the second

event at its new home in

Kirwee, the South Island

Agricultural Field Days is

growing.

Organisers say next year’s

event, from March 29-31, will

be bigger than ever.

South Island Agricultural

Field Days spokesman Daniel

Schat said 90 per cent of the

exhibitors’ spaces had been

allocated.

The SIAFD executive

committee bought the site on

Courtenay Rd, Kirwee, after

it outgrew its leased site near

Lincoln University, where it

was based for more than 30

years.

“When we moved to Kirwee

we purchased 40ha, which allowed

us to accommodate up

to 450 exhibitors. Now we have

purchased an additional 40 ha

of land adjacent to our site,” Mr

Schat said.

“While we will not occupy

the entire 80ha at the 2017 Field

Days, we will have more exhibitors

and a bigger demonstration

space than last time.”

SIAFD switches between

Canterbury and Southland

each year. During the off year

Kirwee farmer Tony Redman

leases the SIAFD site and

in recent months Cressland

Contracting Ltd has been doing

site development work on the

newly-acquired portion of the

site.

Grazing service

introduced

Milk company

SELWYN TIMES

wins Best Growth

A new grazing service

for farmers, which

facilitates grazing on

behalf of stock- owners

and graziers, has been

set up by PGGWrightson

(PGW).

Established two months

ago, PGGWrightson

Livestock Grazing

aims to meet the needs

of Canterbury dairy

farmers requiring

grazing for their young

stock, matching them

with farmers that have

pastures available.

Former stock agent James Penny has

been appointed as grazing manager for

the Canterbury region. Coming from a

farming background, and with a “passion

for animals”, James says PGW’s new

business unit was developed in response

to the changing face of farming in the

region, which has seen large numbers of

conversions from sheep and beef to dairy

over many years.

“The grazing facilities provided by our

graziers enables young stock from other

farms to be grown out to industry target

live weights,” James says, adding that

winter grazing can also be provided. Land

put forward by graziers is first checked to

ensure it is designated for grazing, has a

water supply and can be irrigated.

The grazing service includes a

management plan and animal health plan

being established, as well as a feed budget

for both stock-owner and grazier.

An important factor of the service is the

monthly monitoring of the stock, James

says.

“The animals are weighed every month

using our transportable autodrafter.”

Strategy award

Synlait Milk has won the Best Growth

Strategy category at the 2016 Deloitte Top

200 Awards.

The annual awards celebrate proven

excellence in New Zealand business

management and governance.

“We’re very proud to receive this award,”

managing director and CEO John Penno

said.

“It recognises the effort we’ve put in since

our IPO in 2013 to make more from milk,

and the success we’ve had as a result of this

approach.”

Synlait was one of three finalists in the

category, and the judges said Synlait won

because of a growth strategy based on

selling selected products to leading brands

around the world.

Synlait reported a record profit in the

2016 financial year (FY16) of $34.4 million,

a $23.8 million increase on the prior year.

Mr Penno said Synlait’s point of

difference was the way they partnered with

their customers and milk suppliers.

“Partnering with leading global infant

formula companies and market disruptors

is a key part of our value-added focus.

Our FY16 profit stems from significant

growth in our ingredients and canned

infant formula volumes for our customers

around the world.

“Our ability to collect and process

differentiated milk streams from our 200

Canterbury milk suppliers consistently,

and at scale, with some of the most

sophisticated production capability in

the world creates real value for both our

customers and milk suppliers. That’s what’s

driving our revenue and profit growth.”

Synlait recently launched their

next growth phase, which will see

approximately $300 million invested over

three years. In October they raised $97.6

million of new equity and on November 25

they commenced trading as a dual listed

company on the Australian Securities

Exchange (ASX).

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Student researching

bio-waste potential

Native vegetation and bio-waste could

be key players in New Zealand’s economic

future as the transformation of degraded

lands into value-producing, biodiverse

ecosystems becomes a necessity and a

reality.

Inspired by New Zealand Trade and

Enterprise’s focus on native products as a

key sector, Lincoln University Soil Science

PhD student Salome Seyedalikhani is

carrying out a study to determine the effects

of bio-wastes on the quantity and quality of

essential oils produced from mānuka and

kānuka plants.

Associate Professor Brett Robinson says

Salome’s research is linked with a number

of other studies and field trials being carried

out.

“Salome’s work is part of a larger

progamme that seeks to divert biowastes

from landfills or waterways onto land where

the nutrients that they contain can provide

economic value.

“Lincoln University is working with the

Centre for Integrated Biowaste Research

Salome Seyedalikhani

(CIBR) on field trials around New Zealand

to elucidate the benefits of New Zealand

native vegetation on soil that has been

improved using biowastes.”

Bio-wastes are organic materials of

biological origin, such as bio-solids, dairy

shed effluent and sawdust. While these

materials may contain contaminants such

as heavy metals and pathogens, they are

also rich in plant nutrients, and a cheap and

plentiful resource for rebuilding degraded

or low-fertility soils where food is not

produced.

One such place is former forestry soils,

where rebuilding the soils with bio-waste

may be a more viable economic alternative

than replanting in pines. Bio-wastes would

increase the soil’s nutrient and water

holding capacity, and provide essential

elements to accelerate plant growth. Biowastes

would also change the quality of

essential oils produced by these plants. The

nature of these changes is the subject of

Salome’s research.

In a series of greenhouse experiments,

mānuka and kānuka were grown in low

fertility soils, and soils amended with either

biosolids, biosolids and sawdust, or dairy

shed effluent. The addition of biosolids

increased the growth of both species by

up to sixty percent. In turn, mānuka and

kānuka have an effect on the soil, producing

antiseptic chemicals and affecting soil

microbes involved in nutrient cycling.

The most important components of

the essential oils were unaffected by the

addition of bio-wastes. Ultimately there is

potential for some bio-wastes to be diverted

from landfills to degraded land, where they

can boost the production of essential oils

made with mānuka and kānuka.

Fields trials are now being carried out

to explore the ecological variables and

production economies. While the bio-waste

concepts can be applied internationally,

mānuka and kānuka production can’t be

replicated elsewhere, giving New Zealand

a unique industry opportunity and a

competitive edge.

After winning the Lincoln Postgraduate

Conference Prize for top presenter in her

faculty, Salome is presenting her findings at

an international soils conference this week

in Queenstown.

Gardening

Put on a spectacular

summer show with portulaca

• By Henri Ham

IF YOU want to make a bit

of a statement in your garden

this summer, you can’t go past

portulaca.

This striking plant grows to

around 10cm high and produces

beautiful flowers with

layers of fabric-like petals. It’s

perfect for planting in borders,

bedding, edging, rock gardens,

pots and hanging baskets. And,

if you get some in the ground

soon, it will keep the show

in your garden running all

through summer.

For those wanting to show off

colour in their garden, you can

purchase mixed bundles but

a couple of the favourites are

tequila cherry, which is bright

pink, and tequila yellow.

Because portulaca tolerates

heat and drought so well,

it pays to plant it in full sun.

It grows very nicely next to

livingstone daisies or gazania as

they are all fans of the sun and

they all grow to similar heights.

Plant each seedling around

25cm apart from the next.

Portulaca looks lovely when

TOLERANT: Portulaca likes heat and drought so plant it in full sun.

grown in a basket with petunia

– particularly varieties like red

crystal and primetime violet

star. And the great thing about

using hanging baskets or planters

like the paradise planter

is you can move the show of

colour around wherever and

whenever you want.

Once everything is planted

you can expect to see flowers in

around four to five weeks. You

won’t need to water portulaca

very often, but just keep an eye

on the soil. If you stick your

finger in the soil to about your

first knuckle and it’s dry, it pays

to give them a bit of a drink.

Lastly, if you want the show

to continue all summer, pick

off the dead-heads. This will

encourage your plants to keep

flowering – and it will make

your plant look better.

for the kids

With school holidays creeping closer and

closer, you will be desperately thinking of

some activities to keep the kids occupied and

entertained. Here are a few ideas to get them

out in the fresh air.

Sow Sunflower seeds

Sunflowers add a bright burst of colour and also

draw much-needed bees to the garden. They are

super easy to grow, and give the kids something to

keep an eye on as they begin to grow. Here are some

tips for planting.

1) Pick a part of your garden that has plenty of sun.

For taller varieties, make sure that you plant them

near a fence or trellis so they are protected from the

wind, and so you can tie them back if they start to

topple.

2) Sunflowers like to grow when the weather’s warm

so now is a great time to get in to it.

3) Push the seeds into the soft soil. Make sure

they’re down at least one centimetre, then water

well (using a watering can) afterwards

4) As the plants grow, keep them well watered, and

give them some fertiliser every couple of weeks.

Plant a hanging basket

These looks great, and

take up very little space.

Head down to your local

garden centre and grab

a hanging basket and let

the kids help you pick the

flowers you want to add

in. use South-Hort Patio Plus as your growing mix,

as this contains all the vital nutrients your plants will

need to keep flowering, and help them get through

the summer heat.

Paint pots

Grab some plain terracotta pots, and some paint and

let the kids get creative. Once they are done, choose

some flowers or some herbs and get planting. Once

again, use South-Hort Patio Plus. This mix is designed

specifically for growing in pots, containers and

baskets.

your hands as soon as you are finished. If you have

SELWYN TIMES

• By Ross Kiddie

BY MY own admission I’m a bit

of a snob, I glamourise where

I live, and I tell people I own a

Lexus.

Well the latter is true up to a

point, I own a Toyota Altezza

which was sold here new as a

Lexus IS200/300.

Badge engineering is commonplace

throughout the automotive

manufacturing world, and Lexus

has had several models sourced

from the wider Toyota stable.

One to come my way recently

was the Lexus LX450d, a large,

luxury four-wheel-drive SUV

based on the Land Cruiser platform.

And realistically, it is a

Land Cruiser 200 in disguise, it

gets all the trick four-wheel-drive

gear along with all the grandeur

that embodies the Lexus spirit of

luxury, refinement and sophistication.

The LX has always been powered

by a 5.7-litre V8 petrol

engine, but just recently it has

been joined by a 4.5-litre V8 diesel

which, incidentally, is the first

Lexus diesel offering.

The LX570 lists at $179,900,

and I guess if you have that

amount of money to spend on a

vehicle, filling regularly with petrol

probably isn’t a disadvantage,

but at $159,900 the diesel variant

probably makes just that little bit

Plush Lexus at home in the rough

command for when road (or That aside, the 450d feels

track) surfaces vary, they are all sprightly, it will cut out a standstill

to 100km/h time of 8.6sec,

and will lunge through a highway

overtake in 5sec; both these figures

I would suggest are quick for

vehicle type.

Drive is transferred through

a six-speed automatic gearbox,

interestingly, the petrol V8 gets a

flash eight-speeder, but that matters

little, the diesel unit flows

smoothly through the transmission

and it has quick, fluid shifts

which work well with the power

characteristics.

A stiff southerly was blowing

through Canterbury during my

day of rural testing, and as big as

the LX450d is, it wasn’t bothered

by the wind gusts, there’s a lot of

sheet metal down the side of the

vehicle (almost 5.1m) but it feels

firmly planted on the road and

has remarkable stability.

There is little sensation in a

corner, there is body roll, but

that’s no surprise, it’s how I would

expect it to be. The LX450d gets a

fabulous ride through a complex

air suspension system, bearing in

mind that it has to disguise a live

rear axle. Up front the suspension

is more traditional through a

double wishbone system, but the

engineers have created a plush

ride, and that is something we

have come to expect with Lexus.

The mechanicals are engineered

for life cross-country. I

didn’t take the vehicle off-road

for fear of damage, although I did

take it on a long shingle loop near

Hororata, crossing the Hororata

River through legitimate fords.

The river was barely a trickle,

but it was a good opportunity to

test the varying four-wheel-drive

options.

As a series, the LX has just

had a major makeover, it’s a lot

more than cosmetic facelift, the

only carryover panels are the

doors. The interior, too, has had

a major refresh, and all of the

trim elements are true Lexus with

enough cockpit dials and switches

to keep a Boeing pilot happy.

The LX series is a quality piece

of kit all round. It is expensive,

but you certainly get a lot of

vehicle for the money. It is most

certainly the machine to get you

to the skifield in style.

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 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), walkin

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.

Outdoor rooms

Just because an outdoor space doesn’t have

walls, that doesn’t change the basic principles

applied to any design project inside your home.

With a few simple

fundamentals to guide you,

you’ll soon see how easy

it is to create a beautiful

outdoor room you’ll love entertaining

and relaxing in throughout the warm

days and balmy nights of summer.

Key considerations include style,

function, lighting and mood. Remember

that your outdoor room ought to be

an extension of the look you’ve created

within your home, which reflects your

personality and lifestyle.

Focal point

Beginning, as with any room of the

home, a space must always have a focal

point to anchor the space. For some, this

may be a bar or barbeque area, a large

dining table, or a chill-out zone with

couches or loungers.

Outdoor fireplaces are becoming more

and more popular as our living areas blend

seamlessly between indoor and outdoor

entertaining throughout the changing

of the seasons. They can serve not only a

practical purpose of somewhere to gather

around to warm as the day turns to dusk

and the nights get shorter, an outdoor

fire can make a stunning feature or room

divider for any outdoor living area. Water

features, like a pond with beautiful koi

fish, can also serve as a great outdoor focal

point, creating tranquil environment in

which to relax and unwind in, or create

a meditative Japanese rock garden which

your outdoor area can overlook.

In the zone

If you already have a large terrace or

outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great

place to start. If you have a particularly

large outdoor area, dividing the space

into zones makes for a more functional

and aesthetically pleasing space. You can

do this by using a number of different

elements, such as contrasting flooring

materials or by creating different levels

of decking. However, if you’re after a

seamless indoor/outdoor flow or wish to

create the illusion of more space, use the

same flooring materials indoors and out.

Divisions can also be made with the

clever positioning of furniture. Use

modular seating to create walls and

separate spaces. Plants are a cost effective

and eco-friendly way to create divisions

between zones, and are also an ideal way

to camouflage ugly walls, create privacy

and soften sharp angles. Living walls, an

ever-increasingly popular vertical plant

system, can be either freestanding to

create different outdoor areas and can

be on wheels to easily transform your

outdoor space at a moment’s notice.

Play with height and scale with various

types of planters, whether you use hanging

planters to draw the eye upwards, or

oversized planter pots to add drama.

Go with the flow

Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is

easily created by opening up your kitchen

with bifold doors or windows to create a

servery or bar area for easy entertaining.

If you are building your home from the

ground up, you may want to design an

outdoor room which lies at the epicentre of

the building, with rooms opening onto the

communal courtyard with bifold doors.

Function over form

Consider what you intend to use your

outdoor space for. If you don’t plan on

eating outside, there’s no need for a dining

table, but buy some comfortable outdoor

seating instead. If you only intend on

sitting outdoors during the evening,

then don’t waste money on awnings and

umbrellas, and invest the money in an

outdoor fireplace which you will actually

use.

Atmosphere

Create unique and personalised outdoor

decor with textiles and homewares from

your travels or your favourite antique

shop, or make your own shell garlands or

wreaths from beach holidays. String up

fairy lights or lanterns to create a festive

mood in the evenings.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

New show home

opens at Levi Park

An exciting new show home opens this Saturday in Rolleston’s

Levi Park. Built by Pringle Homes, this 212.5 square metre home is

ideal for young couples, families or those downsizing.

This is a house that stands out,

illustrating that the right mix of

quality fittings and clever use of

colours can lead to a contemporary

stylish look at an affordable price.

Its higher 2.55 metre ceiling, modern

clean lines, efficient layout and sunny

spacious living are just some of the

features that are apparent as one first

walks into the home.

In the kitchen there are Tri Stone

benches with an island, quality

appliances and walk-in pantry making

it perfect for those who like to cook.

Practicality has not been overlooked

either, with vinyl plank flooring

stretching through the living zone to a

softer area in the lounge where double

doors allow privacy or the potential

for a larger living space.

Another feature is the indoor

outdoor flow to a large sheltered

hardwood deck, accessible through

wide sliders from the dining/living

room, or from the lounge and with

the main bedroom leading out to

an adjoining patio there is plenty

of sheltered space for alfresco

entertaining.

There is clear separation between

bedrooms and living plus an element

of separation within the bedroom

wing where the main and second

bedrooms sit apart from bedrooms

three and four, which are close to the

main bathroom and separate toilet. All

are double bedrooms with good sized

wardrobes while the main bedroom

has a walk-in robe and ensuite.

A feeling of luxury exudes with

bathroom features including a stylish

free standing bath, generous vanities,

tiled bathroom walls and floors with

underfloor heating, and walk-in tile/

glass shower in the ensuite.

There is also good storage with

a centrally located walk-in linen

cupboard, and attic trusses in the

double garage. The laundry also sits

in the garage and has a longer than

normal bench with sliding cupboards

underneath and full height storage

cupboard.

Orientated for the sun, this home

has been cleverly positioned on its

609 square metre section. The design

sits within an affordable price bracket

yet its internal features and external

plaster finish with cedar timber and

charcoal coloured joinery, roof and

garage door give it a stylish presence.

Pringle Homes have been recognised

builders in Levi Park in recent years.

They are known for building quality

homes yet as a smaller building

company, offer a more personal

service, flexibility in design and

efficient build times.

Pringle Homes’ new show home is

located at 3 Genoa Avenue, Levi Park

(just around the corner from their

original show home). It opens on

Saturday, 17 December 2016 and will

be open every Thursday to Sunday,

from 12 noon until 4pm.

You can contact Pringle Homes by

phoning Perry on 021 354 289, Ben

on 027 245 0994, the office on 03

421 2795 or via their website: www.

summer holiday period.

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the

latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.

orange lights to us.
