Handshakes greet pupils

• By Tom Doudney

THE FIRST students to

attend Rolleston’s two newest

schools were given contrasting

but equally warm welcomes

yesterday.

At Lemonwood Grove School,

principal Sean Bailey was at the

gate giving a firm handshake

and friendly greeting to the 62

new pupils and family members

as they walked in.

Each pupil was looking

forward to something different.

William Moore, 7, said he liked

the look of the playground and

netball hoops, while Sreya Alex

hoped to make new friends and

Haylin Hobson, 8, wanted to

visit the school library.

The school held a mihi

whakatau (formal welcome)

followed by songs and a scavenger

hunt to mark the first

morning but its official opening

ceremony will not take place

until on March 17.

WORK WILL soon get under way

on a major new Rolleston retail

development but details of a further

development are still being kept

under wraps for now.

The Warehouse Group is building

a new shopping complex between

Masefield Drive and McCauley St,

on a 1.8ha section of the Rolleston

Square shopping centre.

The complex will include a new

The Warehouse store, as well as

Warehouse Stationary and Noel

Leeming stores and all are expected

to be open by the end of the year.

Workers’ sheds and fencing have

been put on the site and Rolleston

Square director Lloyd Bathurst said

work was expected to begin “quite

soon.”

The Warehouse’s existing Rolleston

Square store, built in 2010, is

smaller than most of the company’s

stores at 2000 sq m and it decided

that a full sized store was required

for Rolleston. The new store will be

5600 sq m.

Mr Bathurst said new tenants

were being lined up for The

Warehouse’s existing building

but he couldn’t reveal their identity

yet.

“ This is new school cool!”

Faringdon’s new primary school, Lemonwood Grove,

is now open. As is newly completed secondary school,

Rolleston College. With another preschool on the way,

education for all ages is fully catered for at Faringdon.

Come and see how Stages 17-19 are adding to our story.

There is so much more to see. Clever people know that

Faringdon is where it is all happening in 2017.

Buy pre-title and in some cases, with no settlement

until June 2017. Faringdon equals financially smart

as well.

DESK News.................................... 3-15

CANTERBURY’S police chief John

Price gives an insight into the role

of a police officer in our weekly

Soapbox column on page 13.

Price is a good guy who has made

an impact since his return to Canterbury

as the region’s police chief

about 18 months ago.

New Zealand police have a deserved

reputation as being amongst

the best in the world in terms of getting

the job done, and integrity.

It’s often a thankless job where

police have to put up with all sorts off

rubbish, often booze and drug fuelled.

They’re raising great cricketers in

the Leeston Southbridge area (see

page 20).

The club out there has had eight

players named in Canterbury and

New Zealand representative teams

in the last several weeks.

Two, Ben Donkers and Harry

Chamberlain, have been with the

club since the age of five.

Great stuff guys.

Old school hall

new home for playcentre

• By Tom Doudney

TAI TAPU School’s old school

hall has been moved onto the

site of the former community

hall where it will house the local

playcentre.

The earthquake-damaged Tai

Tapu Hall, where the playcentre

had been based, was demolished

last month.

The proposal to demolish the

building had been controversial

in the community when first

reported by the Selwyn Times in

2014, with many wanting to see

it retained.

However, former demolition

opponent and hall committee

member Andy Robertson said

most people had been happy to

accept the demolition now that

plans for a new facility at Rhodes

Park Domain were under

way.

“It is a shame to lose the old

hall and some of the history that

it had but for the community

going forward [the new facility]

is probably a better option,” Mr

Robertson said.

The new community facility

would cost an estimated $4.2

million and depending on the

would include a community

had been among those unhappy

about losing the old community

hall. But president Alice

Scoulding (left) said everyone

was now just happy

to get a good new building

for the playcentre.

“I think a lot of the

people who were opposed

to it have moved

on and with the [community

hall] it was becoming more and

more obvious that it had to go.

one day.

www.selwynsounds.co.nz

“We are very excited about the

new building and really looking

forward to reopening,’’ she said.

The playcentre, which has

been based at the Tai Tai Tapu

Hall site for 48 years, has been

operating out of the Lincoln and

Prebbleton playcentres since early

November. It will occupy the

old school hall from term two.

The school had a new hall

built in 2012 and the recent addition

of new classrooms meant

the old school hall building was

no longer required.

Mrs Scoulding said it had

been bought for “a reduced fee”

with funding from the Playcentre

Southern Region Funding

Authority, Canterbury Playcentre

Association Emergency

Fund, Central Region Funding

Authority and Tai Tapu Playcentre’s

own fundraising.

The playcentre was looking to

raise about $50,000 to make the

former school fit for purpose,

which would include adding

toilets, kitchen facilities, a new

deck and other things.

In Brief

LINCOLN DOMAIN

Two fields at Lincoln Domain

remain fenced off as a new

irrigation system has taken

longer to install than anticipated.

The work had been expected to

be finished by mid-January but

Lincoln Event Centre manager

Ginny Bowden said the domain

would now be fully accessible

again by this Sunday. The delay

was due partly to roading

disruptions as a result of the

November 14, North Canterbury

earthquake, some of the

irrigation piping and equipment

arrived late. Unfavourable

weather over the summer break

had also affected the work

schedule and grass germination.

CREEK CHANGES

Flooding during recent storms

appear to have made small, but

potentially permanent, changes

to the course of creeks in the Arthur’s

Pass area. Department of

Conservation Arthur’s Pass partnerships

ranger Chris Stewart

said Punchbowl Creek was flowing

in a new channel next to the

old one for about 200m near the

Devil’s Punchbowl waterfall and

Wardens Creek was also flowing

in a new channel for about 50m

below State Highway 73.

CLOSER: The construction site

on a major The Warehouse

Group development at

Rolleston.

Developments

under way

•From page 1

The building would be divided

and used to house several different

“mini-major” businesses

which were not currently based in

Selwyn.

“We call them mini-major

stores because they are not as

big as The Warehouse, which is a

major, but they are still sizeable

businesses because there is well

over 2000 sq m in the existing

store and we can bring a bunch of

tenants there which are quite big

and will be really appreciated by

Selwyn people,” Mr Bathurst said.

“It’s pretty exciting, it will be

great for Rolleston.”

The new The Warehouse Group

development, which was granted

resource consent in July, includes

about 300 new car parks.

A STALWART of Ellesmere and

Canterbury tennis has died.

Ellesmere Tennis Sub-Association

president and Canterbury

Tennis board member Ian Jones

QSM passed away at Christchurch

Hospital on January 22,

aged 79.

Throughout his life, Mr Jones

was heavily involved in various

tennis organisations from the

grass roots to the national level.

It would be almost impossible

to list all of his contributions and

achievements towards developing

the sport in one article but

they included helping establish

the Ellesmere seniors and Canterbury

country seniors tennis in

the late 1970s, the South Island

Veterans Tennis Festival in 1990,

the Rolleston Tennis Club in

2000 and the Leeston-Southbridge

Junior Tennis Centre also

in 2000.

Mr Jones also helped set up a

schools coaching programme in

the Ellesmere area.

He was president of Canterbury

Country Seniors Tennis

from 1980 to 1991 and would often

drive the bus to away games

in Nelson, Blenheim, Dunedin

or Invercargill.

He was a life member of

Southbridge Tennis, Ellesmere

Tennis, Ellesmere Seniors Tennis,

Canterbury Country Seniors

Tennis (of which he was patron),

the South Island Tennis Teams

Festival and Wilding Park.

Ellesmere Tennis vice-president

Dave Greenwood said Mr

Jones had devoted a large part of

his life to developing the sport

and praised his work in setting

up the Rolleston Tennis Club.

“Ian will be missed and always

remembered as a great player,

coach, adviser and passionate

supporter of tennis,” Mr Greenwood

said.

Canterbury Tennis general

manager Hamish Cain said Mr

Jones’ contribution to tennis

across the region was staggering.

“He established two tennis

clubs, he co-ordinated and

delivered the Tennis in Schools

programme across Ellesmere for

15 years, he has been on countless

committees at almost every

level of the game, be it community,

regional or at the national

level with New Zealand Tennis

Seniors,” Mr Cain said.

“Ian has also served as transport

manager for a number of

International Tennis Federation

tournaments that Canterbury

Tennis has hosted in addition

to being the volunteers coordinator

at a number of Davis

Cup ties.”

LEGEND:

Ian Jones’

contribution

to tennis was

“staggering,”

Canterbury

Tennis

general

manager

Hamish Cain

says.

Mr Jones was born in Leeston

in 1937 and learned to play tennis

at the Leeston Tennis Club.

In the early 1950s, his family

shifted to Southbridge and he

joined the local tennis club.

Mr Jones’ father Eric ran the

Southbridge Butchery and, like

others in the family, Mr Jones

followed him into the trade.

He worked in Waiau and

Christchurch for a while before

going into partnership with his

brother Leon at the Southbridge

Butchery. He later held a variety

of other jobs.

Mr Jones leaves behind his

wife Belinda, son Stuart and

daughter-in-law Sue.

Once the installations are

IMPROVEMENTS: Work under way on installing a new

Road upgrade begins

WORK ON upgrading a section

of Rolleston’s Masefield Drive is

under way.

Roadworks are being carried

out on a 320m section on the

east side of Masefield Drive

between the Levi Rd/Lowes Rd

intersection to Dryden Ave.

This route is expected to

become busier both with

pedestrians and vehicles in the

future with the expansion of

the Rolleston Square shopping

centre.

Masefield Drive will also

carry more traffic when the

Weedons Interchange is constructed

as part of stage two of

the Southern Motorway extension.

Work includes kerb and channel

installation, seal widening,

road berm construction and

creating a new footpath which

will link up the existing footpath

network between Levi Rd

and Dryden Ave.

The section of the road currently

has no footpath and has

an unfinished road seal edge

which creates drainage problems

and an untidy roadside.

There is also an unsealed bus

stop. A sealed bus bay will now

be installed.

This work has been undertaken

as a result of requests from

the public. It is being funded

from an unbudgeted SICON

dividend, and won’t impact on

rates.

The road will remain open

during work, with traffic controls

in place. Construction is

expected to be completed by

March.

after having lapsed for the

previous two years.

Entries for the Rolleston residents’

annual garden competition

are to be submitted by February

12, although late entries

will be taken up to February 20,

with judging to take place on

February 24 and 25. A presentation

will be held on March 6 at

The Rock Rolleston.

Competition president Brenda

Dunlop said the competition

had not been held for the

previous two years because

“people got busy” but a group of

residents had worked to get it up

and running again.

“We’re just a volunteer group

that have come together to put

Rolleston back on the map

again,” she said.

“Whether it is a rambling

family garden, a creative native

garden or a vegetable or ecofriendly

garden, there is an opportunity

that you could enter.”

Mrs Dunlop said the competition

was partly about encouraging

people to beautify the town.

“Sections can look so scruffy

and just with them mowed and

Rolleston’s neW RetiRement village

34 Kendon Drive

open monday to Friday 10am - 2pm

Rolleston’s first ‘own your own’ retirement village offers a spacious and secure lifestyle

that also comes with freedom and flexibility for residents.

The first two duplexes, built by Generation Homes Christchurch, have just been

completed at Woodcroft Estate. They mark the start of this exciting new village, with

78 homes planned in total over the next five years along with a manager’s house,

community pavilion and a bowling green (the first in Rolleston).

The village is being established in the popular Devon Park subdivision, with shops

and amenities located nearby in the township of Rolleston.

Spacious two and three bedroom options are coming on stream as duplexes or

standalone villas with single or double garaging. A range of designs and layouts have

been planned to cater for a variety of budgets and preferences, starting from $450,000.

Designed to face north and maximise the sun’s light and warmth, the attractive

brick and tile level-entry villas come with double-glazing, full insulation and LED lighting

for energy efficient living. Other features include a heat pump, quality interior fixtures/

appliances, tiled bathroom and shower and a call system available for 24/7 safety and

peace of mind.

Woodcroft Estate is being presented by The Manor Group, which has 30 years

experience developing villages in the North Island. Some of these include Waterford

Estate in Auckland, Kempton Park in Tauranga and Roseland Park in the Waikato.

The concept of ‘own your own’ is designed to give residents the freedom and

financial benefits similar to home ownership, so should they need to move they will still

enjoy the capital gain of their home. The village will be owned via a Licence to Occupy

that ensures all proceeds from a villa’s sale will go to the actual resident.

Once the village is finished, Manor Group will transfer village ownership into a

residents’ company, enabling residents to contribute to the operation of their own

village, assisted by an on-site manager.

The manager also takes care of the day to day running of the village - repairs and

maintenance as well as the welfare of the residents.

Come and see for yourself or call Corinne Blackie on 03 421 7796.

Stu Donald

Vintage tractor buff with a small

Ellesmere Vintage Club

president Stu Donald

talks to reporter Tom

Doudney ahead of a

fair the club is holding

in Leeston in March.

He spoke about the

whare (hut on wheels)

he is building, his classic

John Brown tractors and

the joinery work he has

done on 19th century

houses

What does the vintage club

get up to?

It’s just a heap of enthusiasts

that got together again when

the club was reformed in 2010.

We have got it up to about 100

members.

What’s your own area of

interest when it comes to

vintage stuff?

I’ve just always been interested

in tractors and machinery, older

types of things. For a number of

years, I have been going to fairs

and rallies and things like that

and, when this club got going

in 2010, I joined up. Lately, I’ve

been building myself a whare to

tow behind the tractor. We go to

a few rallies like Wakanui and

Waipara and Rangiora and all

around the countryside.

What’s a whare?

They’re basically huts (on

wheels). They used to tow them

behind traction engines. It is self

contained and you can cook in

them and sleep in them and all

that kind of thing.

How long have you been

building that?

It has basically been on the go

for about a year now. I started off

with a truck chassis.

Has that been quite a hard

job?

No, it’s not too bad because

I’m actually a joiner by trade, so

I have done it all myself and just

fit it in between jobs.

How much longer do you

TOWED: Stu Donald has almost finished building the whare, seen here hitched up to his 950 David

Brown tractor.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

think it will take you to finish

it?

I probably only need another

whole week on it and then I

would have it all done, but it’s

just a matter of finding the time

to do it.

Other than that, what is in

your own vintage collection?

I have basically just got David

Brown tractors. I have got a 950

red David Brown, a white 990

David Brown and a 1594 David

Brown.

Which is the most precious

one to you?

The 950 is the main one I use

for towing the whare. I get along

at about 25 or 30km/h on the

road, holding up traffic I guess.

Do people get annoyed with

you?

Oh no, not really, we try and

keep on the back roads.

So you’ve got 100 members in

the vintage club. What do you

think is the most impressive

item that someone owns, maybe

something that you might wish

was in your own collection?

There are probably a lot of

things. Everybody has got

different things from fire engines

through to traction engines and

classic cars. No one thing, really.

How old are you and how did

your own interest in tractors

and vintage things start?

I’m 56 and I’ve lived on a

farmlet most of my life and

always had tractors and that type

of thing.

Is that in the Ellesmere area?

Yes, in the Leeston area. I

grew up in Leeston and then we

moved to where we are presently

now. We have been here for

about 51 years, almost my whole

life.

How does it feel to live on the

family farm for that long?

Good. I used to run cattle

and run my joinery business

from the farm as well, but I’ve

given up the cattle now and just

basically sell the grass to dairy

farmers and just do my joinery

as I get older, because the vintage

club takes up quite a bit of my

time.

Have you been president since

the club restarted in 2010?

No, I was elected vicepresident

in 2012 and I served

one term before I took over as

president and have been in the

role ever since.

Before the club restarted in

2010, when was it active?

It was active back in the late

1990s for about four or five years

and then interest dropped off so

it kind of shut down and then,

after 2009, when we had this

country fair at Leeston to raise

money for St John ambulance,

it got resurrected again

and people have been quite

enthusiastic ever since.

Does it hold a lot of events?

We help out with promotions

for other clubs and stuff like

that. Also, we do fundraisers,

we have done some for St John

ambulance, the fire brigade and

of course this fair is a fundraiser

for Abbeyfield Ellesmere (a

housing complex for elderly

people which is being built).

What made them stand out as

a good cause to raise funds for?

It’s the first Abbeyfield to

be built in the Selwyn district

and it has been eight and a

half years in the planning. The

chairman of their committee,

Bruce Cochrane, is actually a

member of our club. We just

decided to help them out because

we know they have got enough

money to build the building but

they haven’t got enough for the

chattels and things like that,

so we have raised some money

through a raffle and now we are

going to run this fair for them.

So it’s just basically to help the

community out.

Is being a joiner quite helpful

in general when it comes to

doing up heritage items?

Yes, so you can make your

own windows and doors and

cabinets and things like that. I

have made other windows for

other people’s whares and

helped them renew their ones.

Some of them were older whares

and we have recladded them and

done the whole lot from scratch

again.

Within the vintage club are

there a lot of people who have

got different skills which are

quite helpful when it comes

to repairing each other’s

machinery and things that

might need a bit of tender love

and care?

Yeah, we have got a range of

panelbeaters, spraypainters,

mechanics, joiners, builders,

engineers and all that sort

of thing which is quite good

because you call on someone for

a bit of a hand or advice.

Bill Pickering writes

about the organisation’s

work in the community

over the years and its

drive for new members

VINTAGE MACHINES: Stu Donald riding a tractor at the 150 Years of

Leeston event in 2014.

With your club and the Ellesmere

Heritage Park in the area as well, it

seems like there is quite a bit of local

interest in heritage. Why do you

think that is?

I just think it’s an old district, we

just celebrated 150 years back in 2014.

There is a lot of heritage around the

area and people haven’t really moved

far from the Ellesmere area once

they’ve arrived from basically the first

four ships. They’ve just stayed here.

Apart from joinery, have you ever

had any other types of jobs?

No, I left school and went and did

an apprenticeship in joinery and have

been self-employed for the last 31

years.

It must be nice to be your own

boss.

It is sometimes, it’s hard to have an

argument with yourself.

Is most of your work around the

Ellesmere area?

Yes, I do kitchens and wooden windows

and doors and that type of thing.

What’s the most interesting sort of

assignment you’ve had as a joiner?

I have restored some older houses

that have been around the 1870s mark,

recladded them on the outside and

done veranda posts and just put them

back to a replica of the way they were

again. I think that’s the most interesting

thing, just restoring heritage

around the area.

What’s the biggest challenge with

those sort of jobs? I suppose you’ve

got to be quite careful to get it right.

Understanding the system of how

they were built years ago and lots of

layers of plaster which you’ve got to be

very careful of because if you do the

wrong thing, it’s all going to end up on

the floor.

Do you have a wife?

Yes, Judy.

Is she into heritage as well?

Judy is actually secretary of our club

at the moment.

Do you think this fair in March is

going to be quite a big deal?

Yes, we’ve got people coming from

Invercargill and Motueka and the

West Coast all converging on us.

What are some of the highlights

going to be for visitors?

There will be traction engines

around pulling sledges and trailers

around, draft horses pulling drays

around with seeds on them and the

wooden and tin mills, we will have

kiddies’ rides there and plenty of

stalls.

• The Ellesmere Vintage Fair

will be held at the Ellesmere

A&P Showgrounds, Leeston, on

March 25 and 26, 10am-4pm both

days. Adults $10, under-15s free.

Covering the Rolleston and

West Melton township areas,

Rolleston Lions will celebrate

40 years of service and commitment

to this district next

year.

Meanwhile, our parent

organisation, Lions International,

now with 1.4 million

members, is currently celebrating

a century of service

to humanity worldwide.

Members are proud of the

encouragement and support

they have given to a wide

range of clubs, groups and

individuals over the years.

This includes providing all

the sports equipment for the

Rolleston Community Centre

when it was opened in

April 1999 and supplying all

the life saving equipment for

the Selwyn Aquatic Centre

when it opened in 2013.

Concern for the well-being

of the district’s children after

the earthquakes in 2010 and

2011 led to a children’s fun

day being run in Rolleston

and, later on, a free fun day

at Ferrymead Heritage Park

with other Lions clubs, which

was attended by more than

10,000 people.

producing takeaways at

doing a sausage sizzle

at the Rolleston Envirotown

market. This tests our teamwork

and organisational

skills, but is always enjoyable

and engaging with those who

support our causes.

Being a Lion is not

all work, we have a tea

Maintaining trust and confidence

Canterbury

district police

commander

Superintendent

John Price talks

about modern

day policing

I am extremely proud of the

police team who serve the people

and make a difference to the

community every minute of

every day as our team keep the

peace and ensure the public will

be safe and feel safe.

In New Zealand, our police

have the implicit consent of the

community. In order to do this,

we must be seen as policing with

integrity and with accountability.

Essentially, we must have the

trust and confidence of the community.

Policing by consent follows the

principles, ideas and ideals of

Sir Robert Peel, which define an

ethical police organisation.

These ‘Peelian Principles’ are

as relevant today as they were in

1829 when they were established.

Police, at all times, should

maintain a relationship with the

public that gives reality to the

historic tradition that the police

are the public, and the public are

the police.

We maintain the highest level

of ‘full trust and confidence’ of

any policing organisation in the

world, at about 80 per cent.

By comparison, some policing

jurisdictions have trust and confidence

levels lower that 10 per

cent, demonstrating that those

organisations are not widely seen

as ethical and trustworthy.

If you have travelled overseas,

you will have seen examples of

policing organisations which

have an approach of policing

with fear and only force.

We place enormous importance

on maintaining and fostering

the trust and confidence of

our communities and we work

hard to ensure we maintain our

core values and hold each other

to account.

Having been a member for 30

years I think the community is

justified in having trust and confidence

in this organisation.

In Canterbury, we want to

ensure that people can be safe

and feel safe and I’m sure that is a

sentiment you will share.

Our focus is on reducing harm

caused to families, whether that

be through violence in the home,

death and injury on the roads,

drug use or dishonesty offending.

We also want to empower

communities to work together,

support each other and to speak

up when something isn’t right.

We work very closely with

a range of agencies and community

groups to ensure people

receive the support they need and

deserve.

Over the past year, we have targeted

those bringing illegal drugs

and firearms into our communities

and, as a result, have seized

140 illegal firearms. Each one of

those is potentially a life saved.

We have also prevented significant

amounts of illegal drugs in

getting to our streets.

We are very lucky in that we

receive a lot of positive feedback

from members of the community

for the work we do.

To those people who have taken

the time to contact us, I would

like you to know that your words

of support mean a lot to myself

and my team who come to work

every day to make a difference in

the lives of everyone so that we

can be the safest country.

the current status of a

behind the existing shops

News

• This block of land in central

be the site of a supermarket,

chemist, doctor and other small

Prebbleton has been an established

than 100 years, which has grown

hugely post earthquake. The

This block of land, situated

directly behind the old strip

disgrace.

When this stage of the subdivision

was completed, the ground

was never levelled and cleared,

leaving an overgrown area, left to

go wild.

I gather the land is owned by

several different land owners, but

the responsibility to make it a

pleasant, safe place for residents

has not occurred.

Recently an attempt has been

made to cut the grass, because it

Motoring

had become a fire hazard.

Because of the heaps of subdivision

rubbish they have just

mown around, it emphasises its

untidy state.

Residents whose properties

overlook this area must be very

frustrated.

Can the residents be advised of

what the actual plans for this site

are, and the time frame?

• The buses which pass

through Prebbleton no longer

go to Hornby or to the Bush Inn

centre.

They go from Springs Rd,

along Blenheim Rd to Riccarton,

then into the city.

Locals want to support their

closest shopping centres and not

go through to Riccarton.

With the inevitable congestion

on the roads here until the

second stage of the Southern

Motorway is completed, the less

traffic on the roads, the better.

At least a half hourly bus

should go to Hornby and give the

opportunity to access the other

routes from The Hub.

Environment Canterbury

manager public transport

strategy Shannon Booer

responds

The bus service goes to Riccarton

as our patronage showed this

was the area where there was the

most customer demand at the

time of the last review in 2014.

Buses used to travel via

Hornby many years ago but were

altered to make the service more

attractive to passengers following

customer feedback that this

made the route too long for those

people trying to reach Riccarton

or the city.

The redevelopment of The

Hub at Hornby may change the

community demand over time

and we can revisit this during

the next review in a couple of

years’ time, but there are no

immediate plans to alter the 80

Lincoln route.

Boosting confidence

for older drivers

COURSES AIMED at helping

mature drivers gain skills to

be safer on the road are being

offered to Selwyn residents in

February and March.

CarFit events can also be

organised during these months

providing a free check of car

safety features and advice on

how older drivers can adopt a

comfortable and safe driving

position in their vehicle.

As in other areas of New

Zealand, the number of Selwyn

motorists over the age of 60

is expected to increase in the

future.

Selwyn road safety coordinator

Ngaire Tinning said

confident driving courses were

a fun and easy way for residents

over 60 to refresh their driving

and road rule knowledge and

also look at ways to plan how

their driving could be safer on

the road.

“As Selwyn is a rural area,

driving is important for older

people to be able to access local

services and keep connected to

family and friends,” Mrs Tinning

said.

“The workshops have proven

very popular and valuable to assist

people to be able to continue

to drive safely on our roads.”

The courses covers road

League club up and running

• By Tom Doudney

ROLLESTON’S FIRST rugby

league club since the early 2000s

has held its first two events – a

pool party last week and a

nines tournament at Rolleston

Reserve on Saturday.

The inaugural Rolleston Nines

tournament, which featured

the Rolleston Warriors and five

teams from Christchurch, was

won by the Linwood Keas which

defeated the Halswell Hornets

28-6 in the final.

Although the Warriors lost all

three of their games, Rolleston

Rugby League Club president

Nui Ririnui said just taking part

had been a valuable experience

for the players.

The club’s first junior

sides would compete in the

Canterbury rugby league

competition starting in April

and there were plans to have a

senior team within the next five

years.

Mr Ririnui said the club had

chosen to use the Warriors

name in reference to the

Warriors NRL side.

“We wanted to align ourselves

with the New Zealand Warriors

because they are New Zealand’s

top team,” he said.

“Maybe when we have future

events we can get some of [the

New Zealand Warriors players]

down here. Maybe one day

we can be a feeder club to the

BIG HITS: Six teams contested the first Rolleston Nines competition, held at Rolleston

Reserve on Saturday. Linwood Keas were eventual winners.

Warriors.”

The club had originally been

planning to use the Raiders

name associated with the last

rugby league club to be based in

Rolleston but decided against it.

“What we wanted to do was

bring something fresh to the

community.”

An earlier suggestion that the

club could be affiliated to the

Rolleston Rugby Football Club

had also been abandoned as

the club wanted to have its own

identity.

“A lot of kids love rugby

league and love watching it and

they have just had nowhere to

go.”

Mr Ririnui said Saturday’s

nines competition was the first

time Rolleston had staged

rugby league games in about 16

years.

It would be good preparation

for the Crosbie Nines

competition, on February 11, in

which the club would also enter

a team.

Anyone wishing to register

junior players with the Rolleston

Rugby League Club can do so

via its Facebook page.

The club’s next event will be

on March 5 at Brookside Park

when an open day will be held

and the club’s new logo and

uniforms will be revealed.

Lincoln

bowler wins

at Ellesmere

• By Karolyn Boon

LINCOLN’S MARTIN Rowson

has won the Ellesmere Bowls men’s

open singles on his home green.

On Sunday, a field of 16 competed

in good conditions on what is

normally a terrible green to play

when the north-west wind is

blowing.

Rowson had to play all three

playoff games before beating

teammate Mundy Carroll in the

final. Carroll was up 7-5 early in

the game and held two shots, but

in trying to get a third he trailed

the jack to go down by three. He

would have had the edge over his

opponent if he had gone ahead 9-5

and not gone for the extra shot.

Rowson then went ahead to be

12-9 with two ends to go. On the

14th end, Rowson held three shots

so Carroll tried to drive them off.

He missed and they shook hands

with one end to go.

Out of a field of 16, there were

six qualifiers for the playoffs.

Dunsandel player Brian Chapman

had to beat Dave Williams from

Lincoln to meet Rowson in the

semi-final. Rowson’s opponent

in the quarter-final was Leeston’s

Colin Lowery who he beat 16-6.

Look out for

children on the roads

This week over 8,000 Selwyn children will be travelling to school.

Selwyn School Road Safety Co-ordinator Stephanie Hautler is reminding drivers to watch out for

children and slow down near schools, early childhood centres and stopped school buses. Local

children will be travelling to school by bus, bike, car, scooter and on foot.

“Children can dart out on to the road unexpectedly. Drivers need to slow down and be extra

cautious near schools and early childhood centres, and remember that 20 km per hour is the

speed limit past a school bus that has stopped to let children on or off,” says Ms Hautler.

This year, two new schools open in Rolleston – Rolleston College and Lemonwood Grove School

- so children will be using new travel routes to these schools.

“The safety of all children is paramount,” says Senior Sergeant Pete Stills of the New Zealand

Police. “Police will be patrolling outside schools and pre-schools so as to reduce the risk posed

by speeding vehicles, illegal parking and dangerous driving manoeuvres whilst everyone gets

used to children being back at school.”

Parents also need to be mindful of their own driving when dropping off or picking up children.

“From observation I have seen drivers’ double parking, parking over driveways and footpaths and

parking on yellow lines near crossings and intersections,” says Ms Hautler. “Taking the shortest

route is not always the safest option for your kids or other children,” she adds.

School travel safety tips:

· Reduce your speed around children

· Park well back from crossings and intersections so children can be seen

· Ensure children walking, scooting or biking wear their safety vest to help them be seen

· If dropping children off by car, ensure they get out on the footpath side of the car

· Encourage your children to use crossing points and kea crossings and always look out for

vehicles in driveways

· Teach children to cross roads safely and to judge safe distances.

Road safety resources for parents and children are available from the Council by emailing

stephanie.hautler@selwyn.govt.nz or phoning 347 2705.

On the roads this week

Repairs are planned to the Waimakariri Gorge Bridge with traffic controls operating. Short delays may

occur when staff gain access the bridge substructure via the manholes in the deck. Road repairs will

occur on Telegraph Road between Courtenay and Bealey Roads with stop/go traffic controls operating.

Road resurfacing work is planned on East Belt (between Edward and James Streets), Birchs Road

(between Trices and Leadleys Roads) and Hamptons Road (between Birchs Road and the road end).

Stop/go traffic controls will operate at all sites. Footpath reconstruction work is also planned on

Habgood Place and James Street in Lincoln.

The intersection of Kidman Street, Byron Street and Tennyson Street is open with temporary traffic

management controls in place while the roundabout construction continues. Delays will occur at

different stages of the remaining construction particularly during the construction of the islands. People

are encouraged to use an alternative route if possible.

East Maddisons Road is currently closed from Ellington Mews to Goulds Road for sewer installation

work. Road reconstruction continues on Gerald Street (between Springs Road and Vernon Drive),

with traffic controls operating. Work on Masefield Drive (between Lowes Road and Dryden Avene) is

underway including kerb and channel and seal widening work, and footpath development. The road is

open with traffic controls in place. Stormwater and roading upgrade work continues on Manse Road,

Leeston, with temporary traffic controls operating.

Work on Dunns Crossing Road at West Rolleston School is continuing with the final tidy up work

underway. The road is open with traffic controls in place. Dunns Crossing Road between Burnham

School and Brookside Roads will be closed until Tuesday 31 January for sewer pipe installation.

Detours will be in place via Brookside and Burnham School Roads.

Partial road closures - Christchurch Southern Motorway extension

On Weedons Road there is no access to Main South Road from Levi Road as a one way system

is in place to allow the NZ Transport Agency to complete work for the Christchurch Southern

Motorway extension.

Coastal households receive

tsunami advice

Around 500 coastal households received a letter from the Council

in December with advice on what to do in a tsunami and how to

receive alerts 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.

None of Selwyn’s main townships are inside the orange zone

or are considered to be at risk from tsunamis. The only smaller

settlements inside the zone are Rakaia Huts, Taumutu, Upper

Selwyn Huts, Lower Selwyn Huts and Greenpark Huts.

Lincoln Event Centre, Leeston Library and Service Centre and

Southbridge Hall can operate as evacuation centres if a tsunami

warning is issued. These locations are all outside the orange

tsunami risk zone. Southbridge Hall was recently used as an

evacuation centre when a tsunami warning was issued after the

14 November North Canterbury Earthquake and local community

response team volunteers helped around 60 people there.

If you are holidaying or visiting the coast and you feel a long or

strong earthquake, see a sudden rise or fall in sea level or hear

loud or unusual noises from the sea then you should move inland

or go to higher ground as soon as possible. Don’t wait for an

official tsunami warning to do this. This same advice should be

followed by people within the ‘orange zone’ in Selwyn. For more

information on tsunami risk and warnings in Selwyn, visit

www.selwyn.govt.nz/tsunami

Community response team volunteers Robyn Searle & Susan Stewart help run

Southbridge Hall evacuation centre on 14 November

Meet your Councillor –

Craig Watson

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

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

contacted on 027 807 2097 or at craig.watson@selwyn.govt.nz

What is your background?

I trained and worked as a Radiation Therapist (cancer treatment),

and have worked all over the world in this role. I now work for a

Crown Entity called International Accreditation New Zealand (IANZ)

as a Lead Assessor in their Radiology Programme. I travel a lot and

meet some awesome people working in Radiology across New

Zealand. I am grateful to IANZ for allowing me to go part time to be

a Councillor.

What do you like about the area you represent?

There is so much to like about Selwyn and Selwyn Central. The

great communities that are still shaping and adjusting to all the

district’s new families (like mine!). The excellent access to the

coast, mountains and the mighty South. The cool scenery, walks,

events, people and townships. The future of our district that we can

ALL influence and the past we can learn from. What’s not to like?

How have you helped people

in the past?

My family and I have only been

here for two years, but I have

tried to get involved from the

start. I was on the establishment

board for Lemonwood Grove

School: Te Uru Tarata and am

currently on the Canterbury

Area Board for the Royal New

Zealand Plunket Society. In

previous towns I have lived in I

have had governance roles on a

variety of NFP boards, primarily

with a health slant. I was also

involved in some Rotary Clubs,

if anyone wants to start one in

Rolleston I’m in!

SELWYN TIMES

Selwyn beaming with national talent

• By Tom Doudney

A SELWYN cricket club is

punching above its weight at

Canterbury representative level.

Leeston Southbridge has

had eight players named in

Canterbury and New Zealand

representative teams over the

past several weeks.

Two of those players, Ben

Donkers and Harry Chamberlain,

have been with the club

since the age of five.

Donkers has made the New

Zealand under-18 and Canterbury

under-19 one-day teams,

while Chamberlain has made the

Canterbury one-day side after

initially being selected for the

Canterbury A and Canterbury

Country Hawke Cup sides.

Toby Doyle, Mitch Ross, Harrison

Cox, Tim Gruitjers and

Morgan Jeffery all made the

Canterbury Country Hawke Cup

team, while Ben Chamberlain,

younger brother of Harry Chamberlain,

made the Canterbury

under-19 one-day team.

For Gruitjers, Cox and Jeffery,

it was the first time they had

made the Canterbury Country

side. Gruitjers plays international

cricket for the Netherlands but

plays in New Zealand during

their off season.

Leeston Southbridge president

Blair Franklin said having eight

players selected for representative

teams was a great achievement

for a small club, and “even more

pleasing, considering that both

(Donkers and Chamberlain)

have been with the club since the

age of 5-years-old.”

NATIONAL SELECTION: Leeston Southbridge cricketer

Ben Donkers (right), with fellow New Zealand age group

representative Mitchell Hay. ​

Donkers, an all-rounder

who bats in the middle order

and bowls brisk medium

pace, has had an outstanding

season, captaining both the

Christchurch Boys’ High School

first XI to the national secondary

schools’ title and Canterbury

at the national under-19

tournament.

Franklin said Donkers’ natural

athleticism and versatility in the

field was a huge advantage.

“He would be one of the best

fielders in the game at this age

level. He is a natural leader and

has maturity and knowledge well

beyond his years,” he said.

Franklin said Chamberlain

had been involved in Canterbury

age group programmes for the

last six or seven years and had

developed into a hard-hitting top

order batsman.

“His promotion to the

Canterbury men’s side was never

a matter of if but when,” he said.

“Like all young, talented

sportspeople, they sometimes

just need an opportunity to show

their talents and (Chamberlain)

now has the platform to

showcase his abilities.”

Leeston Southbridge fight back on first day against Southbrook

A LEESTON Southbridge

side decimated by the loss of

six players on representative

duty was skittled for just 51 by

Southbrook in the second round

of the CRV Ambreed Country

Premier two-day cricket

competition.

At Southbrook Park, the home

side rattled through the depleted

line-up, with pace duo Ben

Rayner and Fergus Fairbairn

doing the damage.

In reply, Southbrook were in

trouble at 27/5 before skipper

Matt Brine (37), Sam Ermerins

(13) and an unbeaten 35 from

Darryn Boyle steadied the ship.

Southbrook declared at 109/9,

with a handy lead of 58 runs.

Leeston Southbridge fought

hard in the second innings,

erasing the deficit and making

their way to 74/2 at stumps –

with a lead of 16 going into the

final day next weekend.

Meanwhile, Sefton put

themselves in a commanding

position on day one of their

match against Lincoln. Batting

first, the Seals received handy

contributions from Patrick

Croker, Ollie Bragg, Matt Rowe

and top scorer Al Chamberlain

who came up from the senior

team. They posted 246/9 before

declaring at the 55 over mark.

After Lincoln lost early

wickets, an unbroken 82-run

partnership between Jamie

Chapman and Hugh Paterson

restored the match to an even

contest with the team reaching

135/5 at the close of play.

Softballer goes to next level

• By Tom Doudney

A ROLLESTON teenager has

been named in the South Island

under-15 softball team to play

the North Island in the curtainraiser

to the International

Challenge Cup final in

Auckland.

The Challenge Cup will see

the world No 1 New Zealand

Black Sox playing in a tournament

with five other teams

– Japan, Argentina, Australia,

Czech Republic and Samoa. The

final will be played on February

12.

Rolleston’s Blake Hardy, 14,

was selected for the South Island

team after his strong performance

representing Canterbury

in the South Island under-15

championships in Dunedin

earlier this month.

Hardy was part of the team

which bet Nelson 7-0 to win the

title. He was a key component

for his team and was rewarded

by taking home the best batter

award. Hardy had a tournament

batting average of .632 and

had 12 safe shots from 19 bats,

including two home runs.

As well as the curtain-raiser

game, the South Island and

North Island under-15 sides

will play a series of other games

against each other earlier in the

day.

A good performance from

Hardy could see him in line

for even higher honours, as the

RISING TALENT: Rolleston softballer Blake Hardy has made the under 15 South Island

team to play the North Island on February 12. ​

games will be used to assess

players for selection to the

New Zealand under-15 softball

team.

Hardy said he was happy

and excited to be playing at the

Challenge Cup.

“That will be a lot of fun and

some more game time for me,”

he said.

Hardy had been playing

softball for about four years. He

took up the sport after giving

SPORTS

up cricket which he had found

boring.

He planned to keep on working

hard on his softball game

and see how far he could go in

the sport.

Canterbury Softball

Association chief executive

Cheryl Kemp said playing at

the Challenge Cup was a great

opportunity and the Rolleston

club deserved praise for how

it was developing its young

players.

“Their players are starting

to be identified at a higher

level than just Canterbury and

I think that is kudos to the club

and their commitment to their

junior players.”

Top US

drivers for

Ruapuna

IT’S BEEN a long time between

drinks for midget car fans when

it comes to seeing top-line drivers

from the United States at Ruapuna

Speedway.

However, the drought will end

this Saturday night, as the line-up

for the New Zealand Midget Car

Grand Prix has been boosted by

the entry of highly rated Spencer

Bayston and Tyler Thomas to the

field.

Both drivers contested the

international series over the

holiday break at Auckland’s

Western Springs before flying

back to the United States to

compete in the Chili Bowl race

held at a large indoor track in

Tulsa, Oklahoma.

They then recrossed the Pacific

back to New Zealand to compete

in the national championship at

Nelson last weekend and have

decided to travel south to race at

Ruapuna.

Bayston from Lebanon, Indiana,

was number two in the

US midget power rankings for

the 2016 season, while Thomas,

from Collinsville, Oklahoma, was

ranked ninth.

The Grand Prix will be contested

over 40 laps. Gates open

at 5pm, and the first race is at

6.30pm.

Brussels sprouts: Love ’em or hate ’em

• By Janet Wade

BRUSSELS SPROUTS top the list of New

Zealand’s most disliked vegetables.

The Belgians aren’t rushing to claim

credit for these almost universally reviled

vegetables, though the link to their capital

city appears to have come from the

vegetable’s popularity in Belgium during the

Middle Ages and stuck as they spread to the

rest of the world. To still be with us today,

Brussels sprouts must have something going

for them – and indeed they do!

If the sprouts are picked when their

heads are tight and no more than 2.5-5cm

across, they are deliciously tender and have

a milder, sweeter taste than their often

tough, bitter, store-bought or frozen cousins.

Likewise, the unpleasant, sulphurous odour

that is associated with them doesn’t occur

unless they are overcooked. The smell is

produced by sulphur-containing compounds

called glucosinolates that research indicates

help prevent cancer (only broccoli contains

more). Packed with an abundance of other

vitamins and minerals, all in all, they are

considered one of the world’s healthiest

foods.

Originating in the northern hemisphere,

where Brussels sprouts are traditionally

served as part of the British Christmas

dinner (no doubt to the chagrin of British

children), they are exclusively a crop

for New Zealand’s colder climate areas.

Ohakune and Oamaru are where most of

our commercially-grown Brussels sprouts

are produced. In saying that, the ones in the

accompanying photographs were grown in

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT Modern hybrid varieties, such as these ‘Red Ribs’, have had the bitterness bred out

of them; Firm the soil down around the seedlings well, so the plants can support their top-heavy growth, and the

sprouts remain tight and firm; Keep an eye out for aphids, which secrete an enzyme that causes the leaves to curl

over and hide them; The sprouts begin to form in the leaf axils once the plants are mature, meaning a long wait for

the end result; Chocolate Brussels sprouts find equal favour with people who love Brussels sprouts and those who

hate them; The sprouts begin to mature from the bottom of the stalk. Topping the plant concentrates all its energy

into the sprouts and causes them to mature together.

Auckland; however, plants grown in warm

areas are more likely to produce loose heads

(unrecognisable as Brussels sprouts), bolt

to seed, and without frost the flavour of the

sprouts isn’t as good.

Warmer climates also allow their main

pests to proliferate such as caterpillars,

aphids and slugs and snails. Birds, too, can

be a problem, targeting the seedlings and

emerging sprouts (pigeons in particular).

Netting can be used to keep the birds and

butterflies at bay, but you will need to keep

a careful watch for aphids, which secrete a

chemical that causes the leaves to curl over

to provide a hiding place.

Brussels sprouts are normally planted very

early in spring, and again in mid-to-late

summer. Most varieties take at least three

to five months to produce a harvest because

the sprouts only form once the plant reaches

maturity.

The plants are best started in seed trays

then transplanted around six weeks later,

once they have four to six leaves, to a site in

full sun, with well-drained soil, enriched

with a high-nitrogen general garden

fertiliser.

Space the plants with at least 50cm

between them, in rows around 75cm apart.

Sink the seedlings down to their first set of

leaves and firm the soil around them well, so

that the plants can support their top-heavy

growth, and the sprouts don’t develop loose

heads because the plants rock around in the

wind.

Side-dress with a high-nitrogen fertiliser

four weeks after planting and again at eight

weeks, but don’t apply further nitrogen once

the sprouts start to form. Keep the plants

evenly moist during the growing season. A

mulch can help to keep the soil cool and

moist and suppress weed growth.

Water – keep this up as much as you can

Dead-head roses and continue to check for any pests

Don’t forget your pots! Make sure they get plenty of attention.

As they have a limited area to draw water supply from, you will

need to ensure you give them enough.

varieties available in stores now

Keep harvesting your crops. Check them daily to get them

Prepare winter beds now. Ensure there are plenty of nutrients

Mulch! Keep it up – your plants will love you for life

Wonderful Water

Watering regularly is important at this time of year. It won’t take long for your

garden and your pots to dry out, which puts a lot of stress on your plants. Get

yourself a good quality sprinkler, hose and watering wand. You may also want

to get a water timer and water flow meter. Intelligro have a good range of

these products, available on the website and in store. A good long water every

few days is ideal, as opposed to a light water daily. Watch you don’t over

water too. If the foliage begins to brown at the edges and fall off your plant,

this could be a sign of too much water. If plants are over watered, they get

starved of oxygen at the roots and lose the ability to take up the water. If in

doubt, check the soil. You want it to be damp, not soggy.

Handy tip!

Intelligro Wetting Agent is a handy product that will help to keep your plants

with the right amount of water all through the year. Not only does it help to

retain moisture through the summer, it will also improve drainage in periods of

high rain fall. It is easy to use and works wonders in the garden!

Struggling with the lawn?

Keeping the lawn green isn’t going to be an easy feat, but with these

ideas you can certainly keep it healthy.

Keep the mower on a high cut setting. The longer the grass is the more

it is going to shelter the weeds from direct sunlight, giving them more

opportunity to germinate. It also reduces evaporation and drying out.

A deep water twice a week is more beneficial than a light watering

every day. The reasoning behind this is it encourages the grass roots

for establish further down. This is beneficial for drought tolerance and

keeping a well-established lawn.

For more information,

check out our website:

www.igro.co.nz

or visit our facebook page:

www.facebook.com/igro.co.nz

If you feel that it needs some more nutrients, grab some Intelligro Lawn

Fertiliser. This is best done on a cloudy, overcast day (and if rain is

forecast even better!). Make sure you follow all instructions, and water

well after application.

Dairy Woman of the

Year nominations open

Dairy Women’s Network is on the hunt

for an inspiring industry leader.

Nominations open for the sixth Dairy

Woman of the Year on 1 February 2017.

“There is no shortage of potential

winners out there doing amazing things in

the industry every day,” says DWN trustee

Alison Gibb.

“It’s just that these women often

don’t realise that what they are doing is

exceptional because they are driven by

their own beliefs and passions without

knowing the effect they are having on

the wider industry at the time and in the

future.”

Gibb says the 2017 winner, who will be

announced at the Network’s conference

in Queenstown in May, will be someone

who is passionate about the industry,

is a leader in her

attitude and who is

out there making

things happen

beyond the farm

gate and beyond her

community.

“It’s so important

that DWN has

created this

opportunity to

acknowledge the

work that these

women do in

dairy industry,” says Gibb.

“The Dairy Woman of the Year is the

only award of its kind in the dairy industry.

There are plenty of industry awards –

but nothing acknowledging the huge

contribution women make.

“So this is a unique opportunity to

acknowledge the incredible and valuable

role that dairy women play in this country.”

With that in mind, she also said anybody

could nominate a DWN member for the

title.

“Nominators don’t need to be female, or

even DWN members. They might be bank

managers, colleagues, neighbours, sales

reps – it doesn’t matter.”

SIAFD will be even

bigger and better

The 2017 South Island Field Days

(SIAFD) at Kirwee promises to be even

bigger and better than before with the

purchase of neighbouring land allowing

for more displays and demonstrations.

The expansion of the event, held from

29 to 31 March, will underscore the

fact SIAFD is New Zealand’s premier

demonstration event for agricultural

machinery.

In 2015, SIAFD held its first field

days at the site it purchased off

Courtenay Road, Kirwee. The SIAFD

board bought the site when 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

40ha of land adjacent to our site,” says

spokesperson Daniel Schat.

“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.

“The machinery demonstrations

will feature beet harvesters and maize

choppers as well as a full range of balers

and cultivation equipment.”

A true community event, a group of

dedicated volunteers organise and run

the Field Days, and community groups

provide many of the services –parking,

catering and clean-up – that make them

function smoothly.

“We also provide $5000 in

scholarships that go to two Lincoln

University students. We will announce

the winners of the 2017 scholarship

winners soon,” he says.

South Island Field Days 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.

the For Exhibitors, The Event and the

Downloads sections or contact SIAFD

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Farmers reminded to irrigate

the grass not the road

Environment

Canterbury is reminding

irrigators to be aware

of where their water is

going and irrigate the

grass-not the road.

Environment Canterbury principal

resource management advisor Richard

Purdon said some irrigators across the

region needed to adjust their aim and

irrigate the grass rather than the road.

Irrigation onto roads, particularly gravel

roads, is not only a waste of water but also

has the potential to create safety issues for

motorists, he said.

“It is the surprise element and the force of

the water that could easily startle a motorist,

it is especially dangerous for those on

motorcycles” Richard said.

Richard said irrigation consent holders

are responsible for the use of water that is

applied to their properties.

“Resource consent conditions authorise

the use of water to a consented piece of

land, not to run to waste,” Richard said.

“We understand it can be difficult on very

windy days but hardstand areas such as state

highways and rural roads are not consented

or authorised to be irrigated.”

Irrigation system operators must monitor

the use of their water and equipment to

make sure the water is used in the way that

was authorised by their resource consent.

“All irrigators should ensure that their

water allocations are used diligently and not

wasted, especially in a dry season. We will

continue to monitor unauthorised use of

water utilising our new locally based water

zone officers and deal with it on a case-bycase

basis,” he said.

Irrigation New Zealand chief executive

Andrew Curtis said the two main culprits

for water going over-boundary were the

end guns on pivot irrigators and travelling

irrigators set up too close to roads.

“Watering onto roads creates a significant

safety hazard, so it’s really important for

irrigators to ensure they water within their

property boundaries.”

“My advice is to ensure end guns are

set and operating correctly and regularly

checked. When you set up your travelling

irrigator always have a set-back distance

from the road,” he said.

Farmers should ensure they’re being

responsible with their water.

“Aside from the safety issue, people don’t

like seeing water being wasted by being

sprayed onto roads. Farmers who irrigate

do so under strict regulatory regimes so

it’s important they justify their use of water

by being efficient and responsible with it,”

Andrew said.

Anyone experiencing spray on the road

that is clearly coming from an irrigation

system should contact Environment

Canterbury on 0800 324 636. If there is

immediate danger to road users they should

contact the police.

Citroen flair for

DS4 Crossback

• By Ross Kiddie

Tuesday January 31 2017

IF THERE was one thing

the separate market

platforms for Citroen and

DS has achieved is that the

designers of both brands

have been given freedom of

expression.

Citroen has always been

known as a company which

has explored the extremes

of automotive design, the

DS brand which is marketed

parallel to Citroen takes

that adventurous approach

one step further.

That can certainly be said

of the DS4 Crossback, the

subject of this evaluation.

Its shape is very charismatic

and has extended the

sport utility vehicle parameters,

it is a crossover vehicle

which, in simple terms,

looks rather like a fully

grown hatchback/liftback.

But its body styling

must have really tested the

boundaries of what is possible

in terms of engineering.

Take the rear doors,

for example, they meld to

a strong point at the top

and slot into a cavity which

looks fabulous, but I can

imagine they would have

been problematic to create.

All through the DS4

Crossback interesting elements

present themselves

and, for that reason alone,

it is a vehicle which appeals

for its fashion and style.

As I mentioned, it is

also a car which borders

in the SUV category even

though it has a traditional

two-wheel-drive (front)

driveline. But it does get

the wonderful 2-litre turbocharged

diesel engine

which has found its way

through much of Citroen’s

product, and it is a power

plant which delivers

fabulous performance and

economy.

In terms of figures, the

1977cc unit pumps out

133kW at the top end,

and a hearty 400Nm of

torque at the bottom end

(2000rpm). That being

the case, acceleration is

swift, the DS4 will lunge to

100km/h from a standstill

in 8.6sec, and will make

120km/h from 80km/h

in 4.3sec, the force of the

turbo boost through the

mid-range is something

quite startling and a joy to

feel.

Even though it is capable

of spirited acceleration, this

engine is rated by Citroen/

DS with a 4.4-litre per

100km (64mpg) combined

cycle fuel usage average. I

DS4 CROSSBACK: Adventurous styling.

couldn’t get anywhere near

that figure during testing,

but I did achieve an average

of 6.4l/100km (44mpg)

which I thought was

reasonable, along with a

6l/100km (47mpg) instantaneous

figure travelling at

100km/h, the engine just

loping along at 1400rpm at

that speed.

• Price – Citroen DS4

Crossback, $54,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4284mm; width,

1810mm; height,

1535mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1997cc, 133kW,

400Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.6sec

• Fuel usage –

4.4l/100km

I took the test car on my

usual high country loop

from Waddington through

the back roads to Hororata,

it cruises the highway

quietly and with a sporty

feel that encourages quick

cornering. Citroen has long

been admired for suspension

technology and velvetlike

ride. The Crossback

set-up is just that little bit

harder than I was expecting,

some of which can be

attributed to low profile

tyres (225/45 x 18in), but

that helps with that sport

feel at the steering.

When it comes to being

placed quickly into a corner,

there is sharp turnin

and unyielding grip,

while sport specification

Michelin Pilot rubber provides

positive information

back to the steering wheel.

Body balance over the

suspension is also well controlled,

the suspension and

chassis dynamics make for

a purposeful drive.

I also took the test car on

an across town trip from

my home in the south to

North Beach to pick up a

Trade Me item I had purchased,

and it dealt to the

worst of the bumps and

ruts with dignity and control,

the occupants far from

unsettled.

Drive is channelled

through a traditional sixspeed

automatic gearbox,

and it works fluidly in conjunction

with the engine’s

power output and management

protocols. While this

may seem a little ordinary

in comparison to the other

standout engineering features,

there are plenty of

other features on offer.

The Crossback comes

with a substantial amount

of fitment for its $54,990

price tag, standard items

include satellite navigation,

idle stop start, dual-zone

climate control, cruise

control with speed limiter,

comprehensive infotainment

centre, heated front

seats, and a heap of safety

gear which keeps the car

out of trouble in the first

instance.

Everything about the DS4

Crossback is just a little bit

unusual, the interior design

is extremely practical and

functional, but it is different

in its own special way.

Add into the equation

the bold, sweeping exterior

style, the result is a car that

stands out with its individuality.

That being the case,

the DS4 Crossback makes a

real statement on the road;

it’s just as well, then, that

it has the goods to go with

the looks.

PLUSH:

The

Crossback

has a high

level of

fitment.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Z & S Croft and J K Williams request to rezone Rural (Inner Plains) land to Living

3 at the corner of Lincoln Tai Tapu Road and Hauschilds Road, Tai Tapu,

Clause 5 of the First Schedule, Resource Management Act 1991.

Private Plan Change 49 (PC 49) proposes to change the Selwyn District Plan

(Maps and Plan Text) to rezone two properties that are 8.1 hectares in size

collectively from an existing Rural (Inner Plains) Zone to Living 3 to facilitate the

subdivision and development of approximately 16 rural residential households.

The subject land is located on the western boundary of Tai Tapu on Lincoln Tai

Tapu Road (Lot 1 DP 436571 certificate of title 537135) and Hauschilds Road

(Lot 2 DP 436571 certificate of title 537136). PC 49 proposes the following

amendments to the Selwyn District Plan:

· amend the district planning maps to rezone the subject land from Rural Inner

Plains to a Living 3 zone

· incorporate an outline development plan to coordinate and guide the future

development of the site

· propose site specific rules to manage flood risk, waste water and internal

roading arrangements

· incorporates land use rules and subdivision assessment matters to manage

the effects of any future development on the site in accordance with the

proposed amendments to the Living 3 zone provisions.

The plan change request and the assessment of why it is needed can be read at

Council’s Rolleston Headquarters, or viewed online at service centres and public

libraries in Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and Rolleston and at www.selwyn.govt.nz

At a later date, all submissions received will be summarised and published.

be arranged to consider all submissions, after which the Council will decide

whether to reject or approve the plan change. Any submitter who is not satisfied

above, please contact Catherine Nichol on (03) 347 2800.

Extending

outdoor living

Rain and wind-proofing an outdoor space adds value

to a property. With a roof or clear vinyl sides, your

buyers can see an area where rain doesn’t stop play.

Thanks to blitz advertising, most

Kiwis have heard the name Archgola.

The company and others like it can add

canopies to decks, enclosing the space for

year-round use.

Undercover verandas, pergolas and

gazebos can be turned into living space by

adding side panels, which effectively create

a conservatory. Restaurants often use these

spaces, so there’s no reason why home

owners can’t as well.

Roll-down clear vinyl blinds are a

popular choice, which, if you’re lucky,

can be bought ready made from hardware

stores such as Bunnings and Mitre10. If

not, there are plenty of companies that will

custom manufacture to fit. Usually these

blinds zip into place and are stored using a

rope-and-pulley system.

Mounting your blinds is very simple.

Typically it involves screwing the

mountings into wood or installing a track

then fitting the blind.

Other options include roll-up shade

cloths or other gazebo or veranda sides,

such as canvas. These aren’t as windproof

as the vinyl blinds, meaning they’re not a

12-month solution.

If you don’t already have an outdoor

living space, building a pergola doesn’t

generally need planning permission..

Provided the pergola is less than 10 sq

m in size, it is usually okay to add a roof.

But a quick call to the council is a good

idea; never risk building an unpermitted

structure.

Another option for quick and easy rain

and windproof outdoor living is a pop-up

gazebo. These can be turned into dining

areas to give buyers a glimpse of what they

could do themselves.

It’s important to dress them so it doesn’t

look like you’ve just plonked a gazebo on

the lawn. Lights, plants, furniture and even

place settings can really give a gazebo the

Pinterest touch and bring it to life as an

outdoor entertaining hub for the home.

The more you pay for pop-up gazebos,

the better UV protection of the fabric and

powder coating of the steel you get.

Heating the outdoor space also makes it

more usable. The cheap option is a patio

heater. Permanent gas, wood or pellet

fireplaces and fire pits are easier on the

eye and can make a design statement, allimportant

when selling a home.

For wind protection, it’s reasonably

simple to erect trellis and staple brush

sides to it or the existing fence.

Bamboo is particularly good for this

purpose, especially if you have access to a

free source - although you could also buy

it at all good hardware stores.

enclosed and powered. Our owners have loved their time on this property and hold cherished memories of the last 16

years, however, the time has now come to downsize and their instructions are clear - this magnificent property must

now be sold. Offered for sale by auction if not sold prior, the property will be sold plus GST if any.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Landscaping and house

design go together

When looking at house designs, think about outdoor living and how

the home will sit on your chosen section, along with the practicality of

indoor/outdoor flow for you and your family.

Often landscaping is down the list and while

we may note where sliders are on a house plan we

may think no further, yet planning helps ensure

there is really functional outdoor space.

If gardening is not your thing, your landscaping

may no more than one or two patio areas, a few

plants in pots then lawn with some trees and

shrubs. For those who like gardening, positioning

of garden beds will also be a factor.

Sub-divisions usually have covenants requiring

that a house and landscape plan (of any area

visible to the street) is submitted for approval,

before construction of the home begins.

Plan outdoor living spaces for functionality.

Identifying plant species on this plan may not be

necessary with just an indication of number of

plants along with their heights and widths needed.

A landscape designer may provide you with plant

details or you might consult a nursery who will

recommend suitable plants.

Minimalism is currently fashionable with

grouping of evergreen shrubs and in larger spaces

one or two trees to create effect. Natives are

popular but consider also Rhododendrons and

Camellias that while being slower growers, do put

on a stunning display of colour in spring.

If you want a little more interest in your garden,

you might include a water feature, pergola or

additional fencing within the property itself. The

latter two have the added advantage of providing

shelter from wind and sun. Look at how the

dimensions of each house plan fits within your

chosen piece of dirt, to see where such features

might be positioned and whether it is workable.

Planning your outdoor space early will also

mean that you can have any pre-wiring for outside

lighting undertaken by the electrician when the

house is constructed, saving dollars and making

it easier as the cables will be laid at a safe depth

(a legal requirement) and ready for the later

construction.

In relation to hard surfaces, while driveways,

paths and concrete patios are regularly planned

as part of the build, other outdoor concrete areas

may not be considered. If you do have an idea

of additional parking areas to be concreted for

a caravan or boat or other hard surfaces you

would like, it may save on the budget by having

this completed when the workmen are on the job

rather than them having to come back at some

point in the future. It also gets these jobs done.

While the budget may be a factor in

determining how many of your landscaping ideas

are put into practice at the time of the build,

having a plan in mind and costing for it is a good

idea. It could save dollars down the track so talk to

your builder, electrician and landscape designer.

You may also like to put some ideas down on

paper as a starting point.

Planning helps ensure there are functional outdoor spaces.

Sub-division covenants require approval of house and

landscape plans.

Consider how the dimensions of each house plan against fits

with your chosen section.

the newspaper.

to stop his paper falling into the sink.

Fix those

minor defects

Start out front, cleaning, clearing and

decluttering the yard to make a good

impression on buyers.

It’s a rare house that doesn’t have defects.

Even newly renovated ones can have

features that detract for buyers. But there

are ways for sellers to deflect attention

from them without pretending they’re not

there. The three main ways of dealing with

defects are:

1. Fix them.

2. Draw the eye away from them.

3. Use them as a selling point.

Simple defects can be fixed easily. Start

out front. Overgrown bushes can be

trimmed, or replaced with a few matching

plants, old fences and front doors can be

painted or stained, and the paths cleaned.

Do this even if a property is a do-up.

You want to give the impression that

buyers can move into the house and chip

away at the work in their own time

If you have time and money, paint sills

and eaves using accents.

Inside, the first thing buyers see is the

hallway, which can be brightened up with

a lick of paint. The neutral paint trick can

also be used to paint over dated wallpaper,

completely changing the look and feel of a

tired house.

Bathrooms and kitchens are important to

buyers, and the eye settles on vanities and

benches. These can be resurfaced relatively

quickly to give a modern look.

If the seller can’t repaint or tile the

bathroom bring in high quality matching

towels, which become a feature in the

room and draw the eye from the less than

desirable walls and features. Nice vases and

flowers will do the same.

Replacing handles and knobs to draw

attention away from the units themselves.

This reduces the number of “I have to do

this” thoughts in potential buyers’ minds.

Drawing the eye away from a multitude

of sins is exactly the thing to do.

If you see an empty house the eye always

goes to marks on the carpet and walls and

this will lower the price expectation.”

Drawing the eye to the furniture and

furnishings, creates better flow, and de

cluttering makes buyers feel the home

would be a nice place to live in.

The other way to handle the property’s

defects is to raise them with the buyer

before they see them.

If the carpet is bad, for example, you

can say: “Hey, they were going to replace

the carpet but they decided to leave it to

you to choose a new carpet and priced it

accordingly.”

Finally, good old fashioned elbow grease

is essential in all properties to remove

those sins that are simply cleanable.
