Proposal

to increase

Selwyn River

flows likely

to go ahead

Rolleston volunteer firefighter Dan Ohs was among many Selwyn firefighters who

battled the huge blaze in the Port Hills. Through sheer grit, determination, skill and

some much-needed luck the fire was brought under control. Dan speaks to reporter

Tom Doudney about the fire and his other emergency services role with St John on

pages 10-11.

• By Tom Doudney

THE PROPOSED use of Central

Plains Water Scheme water to

increase flows in the Selwyn River

is likely to go ahead.

However, one of the remaining

questions is how the project would

be funded.

On Wednesday, the zone committee

led a workshop at the

Lincoln Event Centre to progress

its campaign on making Coes Ford

swimmable again. About 80 people,

including farmers and environmentalists,

turned up.

The zone committee has agreed

in principle to look into augmenting

the Selwyn River’s flow with

CPW water.

Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee

chairman Allen Lim said most

people at the workshop had been

positive about the idea.

“One of the pipes essentially has

to cross the Selwyn River anyway

so we thought we would just take

an off-take from there,” he said.

“It’s yet to be totally confirmed

but given the level of interest, the

likelihood of that project going

ahead is much higher.”

There were several parties which

would have to come together and

reach agreement to make it happen

but he declined to comment further

on who that would involve.

“It’s about funding and who pays

for what,” Mr Lim said.

“This Swimmable Selwyn

initiative has actually gone past

ECan and I think even central

Government is probably talking

about it.”

It comes at a time when the river

at Coes Ford has dried up apart

from a couple of algae covered

pools.

EDITOR’S

DESK News...............................3, 7, 13

THE GOOD news is the weather

looks perfect for the big rock

concert at Lincoln on Saturday.

Mr Google told me yesterday it

will be 19 deg C and there will be

no precipitation – that’s rain for

those who don’t know.

Which means great concertgoing

conditions; warm but not

too hot and no worries about it

getting wet.

The organisers, who are local,

have done a cracker job on this.

There’s plenty of car parking

at Lincoln High School and the

streets leading into the venue,

and there’s a bus service too (see

page 5).

Bringing a big concert like this

to Selwyn is no mean feat.

And the music? No complaints

there with Mi-Sex, Dragon, Jordan

Luck, Sharon ONeill, Annie

Crummer and plenty of others.

I’ll see you there.

THE LITTLE Rakaia Boating

Club is seeking funding to

repair a ramp, breakwater and

surrounding foreshore area

which they say is vital to the

community.

A breakwater and viewing

platform next to the ramp at

Rakaia Huts was wrecked in

a 2008 flood. The wreckage

still sits in the water beside the

ramp it was supposed to protect

and the adjacent riverbank

has continued to wash away.

Ideally, the club would like

to get the area fixed before the

World Jet Boat Marathon in

October as some of the event

takes place on the Rakaia

River.

Little Rakaia Boating Club

president Graeme Patterson

said it was the only registered

boat ramp providing access to

the sea between Timaru and

Akaroa and was an important

place for search and rescue

operations and training.

It was also a popular recreation

area.

“The boat ramp and foreshore

is there for the use of

everyone, it’s not solely for the

boat club members,” Mr Patterson

said.

The cost would be established

once plans were drawn

up but could be more than

$100,000 and the club did not

have the ability to fund the

project itself.

About $100,000 raised by the

boating club and community

over recent years had already

been spent on sheet piling and

hardfill to secure the ramp and

breakwater.

District councillors have

asked staff to produce a report

for their February 8 meeting

on the possibility of providing

funding for the project as part

of the 2017/2018 Annual Plan.

HAVE YOU BEEN TO

SEE US LATELY?

The report would also look at

whether an existing fund of

$40,000, held by the district

council on behalf of the Rakaia

Huts community, could be

made available to cover design

work.

Councillor Pat McEvedy

(left) said Environment

Canterbury

now

had the ability

to engineer the

river mouth in

an emergency

situation,

lessening the chance that the

ramp would be damaged again

in future floods.

now that the damage will not

reoccur, although you can

never promise anything with

nature,” he said.

Cr Jeff Bland said many

people would view a boat

ramp as a means to play sport

and while much money was

invested in facilities for “traditional”

sports such as rugby

and football, “precious little”

was spent on other activities

such as boating.

Mr Patterson said that once

the ramp was fixed, the club

would be able to cover most

minor maintenance costs

through the money it received

from subscriptions and boat

ramp fees.

Watson

freedom

camping

Tuesday February 28 2017

Your Local Views

Freedom campers contribute

SELWYN TIMES

Freedom

camping may

be a new term used heavily

by mainstream media, but its

concept is not new.

Grandad has been taking

his grandkids camping for

overnight fishing trips at Lake

Coleridge for years, boys have

gone camping with mates, as

a rite of passage, since forever

and families have camped on

the sides of lakes or rivers for all

summers past.

When I have raised this in

forums lately I have had Trumplike

responses going something

along the lines of: “Yes but Kiwis

are more responsible than overseas

campers.” Or: “I know I am

responsible but these overseas

people are not.”

I think if you talk to the likes

of Sally Quickfall, the Tasman

District Council enforcement

officer who has been verbally

abused and spat on by Kiwis at

freedom camping hot spots, she

would disagree with such sentiments.

The unintended consequences

(at least I hope they were), by

councils all around the country

blanket banning ‘freedom campers’

has meant those wonderful

pastimes mentioned above have

become unsavoury or illegal and

that is pretty sad. But in reality,

an immigration based ‘Kiwis

only’ policy would be even

worse.

Please don’t think I am against

doing something to improve the

situation in our towns and rural

areas, I am supportive of meaningful

and sensible solutions.

It is disgusting that a camper

defecates on a public building or

uses a private camping ground’s

facilities for free by sneaking in.

A recent study reported by the

Ministry of Business Innovation

and Employment showed that

international freedom campers

spent on average $6961 per trip

in 2015, compared to backpackers

who spent on average $4808

per trip. An international visitor

who does neither of the above

only spent on average $3212,

less than half that of a freedom

camper. Overall it is estimated

that international freedom

campers spent $304 million in

2015.

While acknowledging they

probably stayed longer than

your average tourist it is important

to note that they are

significant contributors to our

economy.

I hope, that when councils

consider what to do, we all look

past the emotions, rhetoric and

headline-grabbing stories and

concentrate on sensible solutions

that benefit our environment,

our pastimes and our economy.

Harvey Polglase, of

Darfield, writes about the

district council’s plans to

consult Darfield and Kirwee

residents on whether a

reticulated sewer network

is needed in the area

Given that the existing septic

tank system in Darfield presents

neither a detrimental effect on

the environment or public health,

and gives no indication of likely

future problems, the suggestion

that we need a reticulated system

should be quickly abandoned.

With the individual septic

tanks disposing of small volumes

of effluent over a widely dispersed

area, it makes no environmental

sense to transport all of this

waste to one site where the nitrate

and phosphate loadings are then

going to require some means of

disposal after treatment.

A major factor will be the cost

of the scheme – those on fixed

incomes will find the proposed

$23,000 connection fee an impossible

cost. There will also be

an ongoing rates requirement for

operation which presumably will

be in the vicinity of the cost for

water supply, so adding another

couple of hundred dollars to the

annual rates bill.

The track record of community

sewerage schemes in New

Zealand is patchy – Mangawhai

in Northland escalated from $36

million to $53 million, Wanganui

has had major problems and

costs associated with its scheme.

The short answer is obviously

‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’

Flow boost for Selwyn River likely

•From page 1

Mr Lim acknowledged that

augmenting the flow alone

would not be enough to improve

the river’s health. Cleaning up

the Silverstream catchment, a

major contributor of nutrients

causing high E. coli levels at

Coes Ford, would be another

priority.

The zone committee was aware

there was a strong desire in the

community to see Coes Ford

swimmable again.

Higher flows would help flush

nutrients through instead of

concentrating them at Coes

Ford.

CPW water would likely

be used to augment the river

between later autumn and early

spring. The water would top up

groundwater first before flowing

into the river.

“It could take a year to fill up,

we just don’t know,” Mr Lim

said.

Fish and Game general manager

and Environment Canterbury

councillor Rod Cullinane

said the augmentation plan

could be a positive move but it

would depend on what effect

taking water which would otherwise

flow elsewhere would have.

“If we can get some water back

in there without robbing Peter to

pay Paul, so to speak, we would

support that,” he said.

Springston South artist and

water quality campaigner Mike

Glover said he wanted to know

who would pay for the augmentation.

“Does that mean the ratepayers

will be paying a private company

money for this water?”

He was also concerned that

increasing the flow of the Selwyn

would also simply flush the nutrients

down to Te Waihora/Lake

Ellesmere and the sea where they

would also cause problems.

A CPW spokeswoman said

the augmentation plan was a

council-led process.

“CPW is here to help and to

try and be a part of that,” she

said.

Last week the Government announced

a target of 90 per cent

of the country’s rivers and lakes

being swimmable by 2040.

An official opening for Blossoms

of Education is granted.

The 6000 sq m pre-school

has an outdoor playing area

of 3500 sq m. Director Baljit

Grewal said it was believed to be

the largest in the South Island,

although that was yet to be

confirmed.

It was good being able to

provide such a large area for

children to play outdoors in.

“Not everywhere do you have

the luxury of such a big space

being available,” Mr Grewal

said.

It will be licensed for up to 130

children but initially is expected

to start with between 20 and 30.

Mr Grewal said the official

opening had gone very well and

they were looking forward to

children arriving on site.

What’s happening

An artist’s impression of the new complex planned for Rolleston.

The Warehouse Group set to open

three new stores in Rolleston

T

hree of The Warehouse Group brands are set to

open as part of the new Rolleston development

at 15 Masefield Drive.

The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery and Noel

Leeming will open their doors in late 2017, providing

the community with access to a wide range of

products in up to 7,200sqm of floor space.

Bought in 2014, the site is being jointly developed by

Eldamos Investments and Rolleston Retail Limited

and will include the three stores amongst a range of

other new outlets planned for the site.

The Warehouse and Warehouse Stationery CEO

Pejman Okhovat says “The Warehouse store has

been designed as a modernised, one-stop family

shopping destination and will be double the size of the

existing store in Rolleston; offering the community

access to a wider complement of products, including

a garden centre.”

“Warehouse Stationery will provide customers with

a range of stationery, art and craft, and technology

devices, as well as print and copy services,” he says.

Jeff Vesey, leasing agent for Rolleston Retail says in

addition to The Warehouse Group stores, there will

be a range of retail, service and health tenants.

“Pent up demand for Rolleston retail space has seen

high levels of enquiry including close to 40 food

operators vying for the five food spaces available,”

said Mr Vesey.

Pejman Okhovat says he’s excited by the new

development and looks forward to The Warehouse

Group brands’ continuing their great relationship

with the growing Rolleston community.

“We’re thrilled to offer some great bargains to the

Rolleston community across our new stores –

whether it be the latest homewares and day to day

essentials, office and school gear, print and copy

services or the latest technology.

“We already have a great relationship with the local

community here and we’re excited to continue that

and expand our store network in this growing area,”

he says.

The Rolleston Noel Leeming store will be home to a

range of whiteware, television and audio, and leading

technology products including drones, devices and

wearable technology. All products will be supported

by Noel Leeming’s passionate experts.

CEO Tim Edwards says the store layout will be

designed to maximise the customer shopping

experience.

“We’re delighted to open in Rolleston for the first time

and look forward to offering the community access

to a range of big brands, as well as other leading

appliances and technology all within an interactive

space.”

Across the Group, the new stores plan to employ

approximately 60 full time team members.

Rolleston Volunteer

Fire Brigade station

officer Dan Ohs

was among many

Canterbury firefighters

battling the big blaze

in the Port Hills. He

spoke to Tom Doudney

about what it was like

fighting the fire, his day

job with St John, and

how he became so

heavily involved with

emergency services

So you’re with both the

Rolleston fire brigade and St

John?

I’m a member of the Rolleston

Volunteer Fire Brigade and also

a paid employee for St John

ambulance. I’m not attached to

the local Rolleston ambulance

station, I’m an intensive care

paramedic and I head up the

clinical team for St John nationally.

I’ve got a response capable

vehicle allocated to me as part of

my role so while I don’t crew the

local ambulance I commonly get

called out from home to support

them.

What was your involvement

with the recent Port Hills fire,

were you with the Rolleston

brigade fighting the fire?

On the Wednesday night I

attended the fire – that was the

night that was particularly challenging.

I initially went up to

Worsleys Spur for a short time

and then we were tasked to protect

the houses at Kennedys Bush

where we spent about three and a

half hours working alongside the

helicopters to stop the fire on the

hillside from coming down to the

houses. It became clear probably

an hour after nightfall that the

area behind Kennedys Bush was

very well controlled. There were

a couple of areas up there that

were still burning but they were

a long way from houses so we got

reallocated to go and check Westmorland.

We left a police officer

up there who was monitoring the

fires who would have called us

back if we were needed but they

were a long way away from any

structures and a long way up the

hill from what we could reach

with our equipment. We were

in there until maybe 12.30pm

and then we were sent back to

Rolleston as they got into a phase

of just holding what they had

overnight rather than actively

fighting it.

What was it like at its height

on Kennedys Bush?

We managed to get a local bulldozer

driver to put a fire break

in between the houses and the

hillside. The fire probably got to

within 30m of the houses and we

managed to stop it there which

was really good. It was a great big

wide hillside and we were limited

to where we could get our hoses

to, we couldn’t get our truck in

there and we were worried about

our ability to exit really fast. So

we got a lot of support from helicopters

in the first few hours in

getting to things that we couldn’t

get to which was really cool.

How big were the flames at

that point?

Because we had mainly grass

where we were, we had a fast

moving fire but it wasn’t massive

flames right there. In the areas

surrounding us, where you could

see the trees and certainly in

Worsleys Rd, there were very

impressive flames, maybe 20m or

30m high.

does his bit for St John

Is the Port Hills fire the

biggest you have been to?

The common chat amongst

the firefighters was that it was

the biggest that any of us had

ever been to – I have been in the

Rolleston brigade for 17 years

and it was by far the biggest for

me. It was also a very different

type of fire behaviour to what we

are used to. There were a number

of paid staff and Rural Fire guys

who have fought similar fires in

the United States and Australia

but in the main none of us had

experienced something like that

in Canterbury.

How did you feel about the

support the firefighters received

from the community?

That was very cool and humbling.

The brigade was donated

beer, soft drink and baking and

there were thank you letters. A

number of kids from Clearview

Primary School made cards

which were dropped off and we

reciprocated by giving them an

old fire brigade helmet with a

message of thanks on it.

With St John, how often do

you get called out to support

ambulance?

It varies, typically it would

be a couple of times a week.

Normally it is because they need

some support with intensive care

paramedic level interventions

or because the local ambulances

have all been tasked to other jobs

and I can get to an incident [in

Selwyn] significantly faster than

a town ambulance can.

How often do you get called

out with the Fire Service?

With the Rolleston brigade, one

out of every four weeks you will

be on call. During the busy period

you can get called out eight

or nine times a week, whereas

during the quiet period, which is

winter for us, you just get one or

two jobs a week.

I know the fire brigade get

called out to accidents and

things as well. Do you ever gets

called out twice with both fire

and ambulance?

At times I can be paged by

both fire and ambulance. The

most common example would

be a motor vehicle crash. What I

tend to do is go to the fire station,

make sure the guys know I am

going and there is someone else

able to crew the truck. I will normally

just go to the scene in my

car and do the patient care and

I am there if my fire crew needs

and works for St John.

some support as well.

When you say that you get

called out to support ambulance

staff sometimes, is that because

you have quite specific skills

that not all staff would have?

Yes. Relative to the crews that

are normally on crew in Selwyn

I have a range of drugs and skills

which I can use which it isn’t

common for us to use.

You would attend a number

of serious incidents throughout

the year. How do you personally

handle that? Is it difficult, or are

you used to it?

I don’t think you ever get used

to it. I think if you get used to it

you run the risk of not having

the empathy which is required to

attend the incident and comfort

both patients and their families.

The best method for debriefing

that I find, and it’s very personal

for anyone, is to talk to your

colleagues and to talk to family.

Both St John and the Fire Service

provide us with peer support options

– people you can phone up

confidentially if you don’t want

to talk to your local people, and

you can talk to without talking to

someone who you know.

Have you had previous jobs

before working full-time since

emergency services?

I have been with St John since

I was in my early 20s and prior

that I was just sort of studying

and doing bits and pieces jobs

like pumping gas and working

at sawmills and things. I became

involved with emergency services

when I moved out to Rolleston

and had no conception that there

was this thing called volunteer

firemen. I was working at the

local petrol station and made this

association between this funny

air raid siren going off and the

fact the fire truck was going past

every time that it did. When

one of the guys from the brigade

came in, in uniform, I asked him

about it and he said come down

and have a look. So I went down

and the guy who was in charge of

the brigade at that point, Glenn

Cockburn, also worked for ambulance.

I joined the fire brigade

and then he encouraged me to

start volunteering with St John.

Backyard critters

Watch out for weta

Mike Bowie is

an ecologist

who

specialises in

entomology

(insects and other

invertebrates). Each

week he introduces a

new species found in

his backyard at Lincoln.

His column aims to

raise public awareness

of biodiversity, the

variety of living things

around us

WETA ARE New Zealand’s

insect icons and as many as 120

species are known here.

They are close relatives to

crickets and grasshoppers, and

are flightless. Most weta are vegetarians,

eating leaves and berries

but may also eat small insects.

One weta species that most

people have in their backyard are

cave weta.

Contrary to their name, not

all cave weta live in caves. Rather

they live in cool, dark, moist

places and come out to feed or

look for a mate at night.

They have large antennae to

help sense their way around and

ICONIC INSECT: Contrary to their name, cave weta live in many

places other than caves, including gardens. ​

long legs for escaping predators.

Females have what looks like

a ‘stinger’ at their rear. This is

actually an egg-laying appendage

called an ovipositor. The ovipositor

is inserted into soft soil where

their eggs are laid.

Cave weta are often found in

wood heaps as they often live

under bark, in cracks or holes of

trees.

Artificial refuges called weta

motels can be constructed to

encourage them into the garden,

where this weta was found.

That’s it for this week, remember

there are 38 days to go until

Lincoln’s Bioblitz, a race to count

as many different species as possible

in 24 hours.

a world record attempt today. ​

Lincoln targets gumboot

throwing world record

IT IS hoped about 500 people

will bring their gumboots

along to Lincoln University this

morning to help set a Guinness

World Record.

The Lincoln University

Students’ Association will

try to set the world record for

the number of people taking

part in a gumboot throwing

competition.

Lincoln is looking to take

the record back from Massey

University which claimed it last

year with 478 people involved.

Lincoln had previously set the

record in 2013 with 348.

Association vice-president

Tessa Williams said it was

hoped 500 people would take

part in The Great Gumboot Toss

event, which is due to take place

today at 11am on the university

sports’ fields.

“Everyone is welcome. We

have it set up through Guinness

World Records so it will be

official,” Ms Williams said.

“There will a chance to have a

bit of practice around 10.30am

and afterwards there will be the

South Island gumboot throwing

championships, so if you find

a bit of hidden talent you could

have a go at that.”

Distance was not important

for the record attempt.

give it a hurl,” Ms Williams

said.

Helping those affected by the Port Hills fires

Selwyn District Council’s welfare and recovery team has been visiting the homes of Selwyn residents

affected by the Port Hills fire and offering assistance.

Early last week, Selwyn households who had been evacuated from their homes were able to return

and the Council’s welfare team along with the Mayor visited around 60 properties. People visited were

provided with information and advice around health and welfare issues and contact details for a range

of organisations who can offer help.

Anyone needing help following the fires can contact our welfare team on 347 2740 or 027 556 5748. If

you would like to make a donation to help Selwyn families affected by the fires or to help helicopter pilot

Steve Askin’s family please visit www.selwyn.govt.nz for information on how to do this.

Firefighters and civil defence volunteers from across Selwyn and New Zealand have been assisting

with the fire response. The fire operation is continuing this week. Although the fire is now controlled

there are still many hotspots within the fire perimeter which could potentially ignite. The focus of the fire

operation is on reducing the number of hotspots and reducing the fire risk associated with any unburnt

vegetation by creating fire breaks or burning vegetation. Drones are being used to provide thermal

imaging showing hotspot locations.

During the fires, the Council’s emergency alert system called Selwyn Gets Ready was used to send

warnings and advice to Selwyn households via emails and texts. If you would like to sign up for this free

service please visit selwyn.getsready.net and select ‘join.’

On the roads this week

Preseal road repairs are planned Hoskyns, Telegraph and Downs

Roads. Road repairs are also planned on Curve and Leaches

Roads. Traffic controls will operate at all sites.

Road resurfacing is planned on Weedons Ross and Coaltrack

Roads, with stop/go controls operating. Footpath repairs are

planned on Hasendene Place in Lincoln. Work continues to install

kerb and channel on Masefield Drive and add a new footpath

(pictured). Traffic controls are in place – please take care.

Manse Road roading and stormwater improvement work continues.

East Maddisons Road is now open to traffic both ways with traffic

controls operating. Road reconstruction continues on Gerald Street,

with traffic controls operating.

Road closure – Dynes Road

From Wednesday 1 March until the end of March, Dynes Road will

be closed to traffic from the intersection with Springston Rolleston

Road to about 150 metres from this intersection. The closure is to

extend a sewer main along the road. On Selwyn Road near Cross

Road sewer installation work will also take place, with the road

remaining open but traffic is asked to take care near this location.

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension

The passing lane on Main South Road between Rolleston and

Weedons Road is closed for works related to the Christchurch

Southern Motorway Stage 2. On Weedons Road there is currently

no access to Main South Road from Levi Road with a one way

system in place.

Gardening

SELWYN TIMES

Diana Noonan tells you

how to pick, snap and

snip the best produce

from your garden this

month

CAPSICUM

Confusion reigns where capsicum

‘colours’ are concerned but the

general rule is that capsicums are

ready to harvest when they have

turned the colour specified for

the variety planted.

So, if you want the sweetest,

fullest-flavoured capsicum you

can get your hands on, don’t

pick it until it’s the colour of the

vegetable on the seed packet

you sowed it from or the label

of the seedling you popped

into the ground. And, yes, a

green capsicum can be either an

immature capsicum yet to change

colour or a fully-mature green

capsicum (if that was the colour

variety you grew).

On its way to being the colour

you aimed to grow, the capsicum

(unless it’s a strictly green variety)

will generally (but not always)

change from green to yellow and

then to red.

One thing that’s not so difficult

to get your head around, however,

is that the longer a capsicum

stays on the plant, the sweeter it

will be. Conversely, if you pick

it before it’s mature it may even

have an almost bitter flavour,

or (in the best-case scenario)

be almost tasteless. Another

guideline for picking at maturity

is to go by size (once again, refer

to the plant label or seed packet

for a guide as not all fruit is the

same size on maturity).

When choosing a fruit to pick,

let colour and size be your main

guides but also gloss and weight.

Perfectly ripe capsicums have a

vivid colour and their skins are

glossy and never dull. Dullness

indicates over-ripeness and any

wrinkles in a dull skin suggest

that the flesh of the fruit may

even be mushy. Gently weighing

the capsicum in your cupped

hand to test for readiness also

helps determine maturity. If

perfectly mature, the capsicum

should feel heavy for its size.

If you do happen to pick an

immature fruit, it is unlikely to

mature in storage or even when

placed on a sunny window ledge.

Of course, any capsicum is a

good capsicum where preserving

is concerned, and while you may

not wish to snap-freeze less-thanperfect

fruits, there is no reason

Colourful capsicums and beautiful

POPULAR: The longer a

capsicum stays on a plant,

the sweeter it will be. French

or ‘dwarf’ beans, as well as

their climbing cousins, come

in both green and purple.

why they cannot be chopped

into pickles and relishes, or even

stuffed and baked.

Perhaps the one exception to

the mature harvesting guide is

when you want to encourage

more flowers to develop. Picking

peppers before they are totally

mature will encourage more

flowers and therefore, eventually,

more fruit, so it’s a case of deciding

what’s best for your circumstances.

With several plants growing, you

should be able to have your cake

(or in this case, capsicum), and eat

it, too.

When it comes to actually

harvesting capsicums, use

scissors and snip so that a stem

remains attached to the fruit.

Never tug the fruit off or you’ll

damage the plant. Green peppers

will store (uncut) in the fridge for

one to three weeks while uncut

coloured peppers will store for

one to two weeks.

BUSH AND CLIMBING

BEANS

The most popular summerharvest

beans in New Zealand

are the green and yellow French

dwarf varieties (also known

as ‘bush’ or ‘snap’ beans and

sometimes to be found in purple)

and climbing beans. There are a

number of varieties of climbing

beans, but they can be generally

divided into two categories:

climbing French (or ‘snap’) style

and scarlet runners (a flatpodded

climber bean more suited

to cool climates).

All bean plants will be

encouraged to produce more fruit

by regular picking, a practice

that also thins out the pods and

encourages air circulation (beans

are notorious for developing

fungal rot). Snap varieties should

be picked when the pods are not

more than 10cm long (dwarf

varieties) or 20cm long (climbing

varieties).

Autumn

Lawn Care

As we head into the autumn months we can turn our focus back to the lawn. After the drier

months your lawn has no doubt felt the effects of the heat and lack of rain. Autumn is a good time

to sow new lawns, and repair existing ones. Here are some tips for the different tasks at hand!

Preparing a new lawn

You can prepare new lawns now. Ensure you

have prepared your ground well, this is your

base for a quality lawn so you want to get

it right. Intelligro Lawn Construction Mix is

ideal for preparing, and then sowing in. It is

available by the half cubic metre, and you can

collect it from our site or get it delivered.When

it comes to choosing your seed, you need to

make sure that you are selecting one that is fit

for purpose. There are a number of varieties

available, so make sure you ask before you

purchase! Intelligro stocks Legacy Lawn Seed,

which is available in both 1 and 5kg bags. See

below for some more information.

Fertilise Existing Lawns

Striving for a lush green lawn doesn’t come easy.

Continuous maintenance is required, fertilising,

watering, moving, and removing weeds to name a few.

Intelligro Lawn fertiliser, and slow release fertilisers

are packed with essential nutrients for growth and

development, greening and disease protection. Make

sure you fertilise early morning, or late evening and

water thoroughly afterward. If you have some patches

that need repairing, we have Lawn Mix available in 20L

bags too. Now is a good time to do this as well.

More about Legacy Lawn Seed

Legacy Lawn seed is a very popular seed due to its

robust nature. The seed will produce a lush dark green

lawn that is very resilient. Here are some other features:

3 Low maintenance

3 Great wear tolerance

3 Great in dry conditions - drought tolerant

beans

Although there is little need

for stringing beans nowadays,

picking after the beans are

past maturity does mean their

skins are more fibrous and less

palatable. Always snip the beans

off with kitchen scissors or (if

you have the finger nails for it!)

nip through the stems with a

sharp pinch.

Scarlet runner beans are a

different ‘animal’ altogether.

While beans left to mature on

the plant can be podded, and

the ‘old style’ way of harvesting

is to let the beans grow as long

as possible and then stew them,

gardeners in-the-know will be

sure to pick the beans when they

are no more than 15-20cm long

and when the pods are still flat

and tender. Used at this stage,

they are every bit as delicious

as snap beans, especially when

sliced finely (lengthways) and

sautéed in butter or blanched

and served cooled with a sweet

vinaigrette.

Picking of any bean plant

needs to be regular and frequent

(more than once a week in good

growing conditions). If you miss

any pods and the seeds within

develop fully, the beans can

always be podded and used that

way but be aware that allowing

fruit to mature will slow down

the plant’s production. Its aim,

after all, is not supply you with

beans but, rather, to grow fruit,

set seed, and then shut up shop

for the season!

CLIMBERS: All

bean plants will

be encouraged

to produce more

fruit by regular

picking,

IT HASN’T been an easy summer

in the garden.

Exceptionally unsettled

weather has occurred in all parts

of New Zealand with extremes

of heat, wind and rain. Regardless

of this, February is still a

significant month for harvesting

crops and reaping the benefits of

your hard work both in the home

orchard and vegetable garden.

Summer salad vegetables should

be at their peak this month. Ensure

plants are regularly watered to

maintain healthy growth, especially

cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce

and radishes. Other typical summer

veges include beans (climber

and dwarf), aubergines, courgettes,

beetroot, corn, onions, peppers

and pumpkin, and should all be

ready to harvest.

Remove any plants that have

cropped and finished for the season

to provide room for winter

vegetables (broccoli, brussels

sprouts, cabbages and cauliflower)

which can now be planted

to mature in the early winter.

Consider saving seed from your

favourite summer vegetables,

particularly beans and tomatoes.

Late season peaches and plums

are now maturing, and apples

and pears are beginning to ripen,

particularly early varieties such

as gala. Fruit are now forming on

citrus trees (ripening in mid-

encourage repeat flowering.

winter). Ensure all fruit trees are

well mulched to help maintain

soil moisture and reduce weed

growth.

Most strawberry fruiting has

now finished, so allow growth to

provide runners for next seasons

plantings or remove old plants.

It’s possible to obtain a second

crop on raspberry plants in February,

especially if old wood has

been removed after the first crop.

Continue tying up new season’s

growth for next season’s crop.

Almost all herbs thrive in the

hot sunny summer months.

However, a number do flower

and go to seed in late-February

so remove and replace with fresh

new plants. You can also gather

leaves for drying which is easy

to do. Simply place the leaves in

a shallow tray in a dry, sunny,

sheltered position. Leave them

for about two to three weeks,

which should be sufficient time

for drying.

February provides the peak

of display for summer annuals

that thrive in the hot summer

months, like cosmos, marigolds,

petunias, salvias, portulacas and

zinnias. Plant ‘potted colour’ to

brighten up containers or special

parts of the garden. Continue

dead-heading plants to help

maintain continuous flowering.

Keep roses well-watered and

apply mulch to keep moisture

and nutrients in.

New Childcare Centre

opens in Rolleston

New preschool

opens in Rolleston

The official visits are over and Blossoms

Educare will soon welcome their first

Rolleston students. The children will also be

the preschool educator’s first South Island

students.

This will be great news for the many

families who have been enquiring about

Rolleston’s newest early childhood

educational facility, and for those moving

into the area; especially as many other

centres have already reached capacity.

“Since last year, we’ve had over one

hundred enquiries for our new Rolleston

preschool,” advises Rolleston Centre

Manager, Barbara Ludlow.

Throughout the country, Blossoms

Educare has over 670 children including

157 under-2 years old. They already have

eight centres located around Auckland with

more being built throughout the country,

including at Rangiora, in Auckland and

another in Rolleston near Lemonwood

Grove School.

“The success of Blossoms Educare is, we

believe a result of the symbiotic relationships

between parents, children and community,”

suggests Sarabjit Sidhu, Operations Manager

of Blossoms Educare.

The team at Blossoms Educare work with

families to ensure that all children enjoy

a wonderful preschool experience that

allows them to learn and grow. While the

Te Whāriki, New Zealand early childhood

curriculum is followed, their philosophy,

vision and goals also promote family and the

local community.

The teaching programme sits alongside

the children’s own disposition where their

ideas and passions are explored. If the topic

is transport then the areas the children are

interested in are identified and research

conducted such as transport used in

building. This helps expand their minds and

engenders creativity.

Special emphasis is placed on natural

materials and neutral colours with play

equipment selected accordingly. Smart

technology has been built into the centre.

This includes a centralised music system;

wall mounted televisions to support learning

activities; and the potential for video

conference networking with other centres

for connectivity between centres and staff.

Another attractive feature of this preschool

is its opening hours, from 7am until 6pm

and flexibility of times when a child can

attend. This significantly supports families

who are seen as important, something that

is reflected in the dedicated space in the

entry area where there are comfy couches

so whanau can relax and chat while having

a coffee.

Blossoms Educare offers affordable and

unique early childhood education, working

with families to allow their children to

experience this.

Blossoms Educare is located at

325 Dunns Crossing Road at the

Stonebrook end of Rolleston. To learn

more, call 0800 102 236 or check their

website: www.blossomseducare.co.nz.

Building a new

preschool

Space has

been set

aside in the

entry for

whanau to

relax.

Considerable thought has gone into the

design of Blossoms Educare’s new early

childhood education centre in Rolleston.

The aim for the centre was to merge town

and country, a theme that fits with Blossoms

Educare’s policy of providing more open

space than the Ministry of Education

minimum requirement; something that has

proved popular with parents and children

alike.

From planning the size of the functional

spaces, play areas, outdoor facilities, and

colour scheme to the construction, a team of

people have been involved.

Heading the project were Blossom

Educare’s development team, JP Singh and

Kuljeet Singh. They found a suitable site in

Rolleston, designed the centre and managed

the project, working closely with builders

Hazeldine Construction who co-ordinated

over forty seven sub-contractors and

suppliers.

Jared, Jasmine and their team at Hazeldine

Construction say they feel fortunate to have

been involved with Blossoms Educare who

they found to be professional and inclusive,

allowing them to contribute to the end

result. This included landscaping and laying

the hard surfaces.

“The brief for the outdoor space was to

create different areas, including a cycle track,

quiet places, and an entertaining area where

children could sit. We linked this to the

small house that will allow for imaginative

play based around the home,” explains Nick

Newell, Construction Support Manager for

Hazeldine Construction.

Timber was to be used instead of synthetic

products and soft colours to blend with the

brick colour for an earthy environment.

Hazeldine Construction produced a

2D drawing to work from and chose the

materials being given artistic licence to

create the spaces.

Nick says the outdoor area tops the

preschool off, and after spending months on

the internal building, it was great to be able

to add the finishing touches.

“It’s a play area that children can really

enjoy as an extension of the centre itself

rather than an afterthought. We’re proud

of what has been achieved and appreciative

of being able to take ownership of the total

product,” says Nick.

The team at Blossoms Educare are

appreciative too.

“The builders were brilliant, responsive

and truly part of our team,” says Paula

Reeves, New Projects Manager. “If you

telephoned them requesting something or a

change, they were on the job immediately.”

Hazeldine Construction has a versatile

team sharing a diverse skill set. Their

projects range from hard surface concreting

to building work such as extensions, kitchen

and bathroom renovations, and residential

and light commercial new builds. They were

involved in the construction of Kaiapoi’s

information centre and PlaceMakers outlet

and are principal builders for Blossoms

Educare’s second Canterbury early

childhood centre in Rangiora.

With their first Rolleston early childhood

centre up and running, Blossoms Educare

have no time to rest with plans in the pipeline

for a second centre in the area in the not too

distant future.

A playhouse

was part of

the brief.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

New tool approved

for estimating

nitrogen losses

N Check, a new electronic tool for

arable and horticulture farmers, has been

approved for use in the Selwyn Te Waihora

catchment. It provides an alternative to

OVERSEER® for estimating farm nitrogen

losses. It is free, quick and easy to use.

NCheck will be available for an interim

period of up to five years while the crop

module in OVERSEER® is being updated.

In the meantime, it is important for

farmers to keep their farm data from 2009-

2013 as they will eventually require this to

develop an OVERSEER® nitrogen baseline.

How does NCheck work?

NCheck was designed to enable farmers

to access their own N-loss numbers. The

tool uses the farm address to access the soil

and climate information for the farm and

then leads the farmer through a short set

of questions about the farm system and its

management. It then uses this information

to estimate a nitrogen loss for the farm.

This number is the Nitrogen Loss Estimate

for the farm. N-Check assumes that the

farmer is applying good management

practices (GMPs).

In the background, the tool is accessing

an extensive set of OVERSEER® results,

generated for Environment Canterbury’s

Matrix of Good Management (MGM)

project via a set of answers. It is drawing

on less farm information than a full

OVERSEER® budget, so the N-Loss

estimate it produces could be less accurate

than the OVERSEER estimates.

At the end of the process an NCheck

report is available. This can be printed off

and filed with the farmer’s consent, if one is

required, and the farm environment plan.

NCheck can be used by all farmers in

Selwyn Te Waihora to determine their

nitrogen loss number and based on this,

whether or not a consent is required.

Additionally NCheck can be used for

two types of farms in Selwyn Te Waihora

in the consent process and during on-farm

audits. These are:

Arable and horticultural farmers with

cropping rotations on more than 50 per

cent of the property or intensive vegetable

rotations for more than 80 per cent of the

time.

Low leaching/lifestyle farming activities

where nitrogen losses do not exceed 15

KgN/ha/year.

Finding and using NCheck

NCheck can be accessed on Environment

Canterbury’s website: Once you have

found the tool, follow the instructions to

register yourself as a user.

Guidelines for using NCheck are

available on the same page of the website.

Selwyn Te Waihora Land Management

staff have scheduled a series of dropin

sessions where they will be able to

demonstrate NCheck, and FAR is planning

to run consent-development workshops in

the autumn.

NCheck will be available for up to

five years while the cropping module of

OVERSEER® is being updated. Consents

issued based on NCheck Nutrient Loss

Reports will expire in 2022 and those

who have used NCheck for consents this

year, will need to reapply at that stage with

OVERSEER® data.

Farmers may still choose to use

OVERSEER® data for the current

consenting process.

If you are part of an irrigation scheme,

you may still need to use OVERSEER®.

Check with your scheme.

If a significant large part of your farm

business relies on intensive, winter

dairy grazing you should prepare an

OVERSEER® budget.

If you wish to explore different nitrogen

mitigations or land use scenarios

OVERSEER® will be the better option.

To date, NCheck has been only been

approved for use in the Selwyn Te Waihora

Zone, however, there is a strong potential

to use it in other Canterbury catchments

to help with the consenting process.

Approval in these zones will depend on

representation from the zone committee to

Environment Canterbury. A stronger case

can be made if farmers support their zone

committees with an application. Farmers

are urged to do this.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

The trusty truck

Bedford trucks can still be found around New Zealand;

parked up worse for wear or still performing a useful role.

Produced by Vauxhall Motors (later General Motors),

Bedfords were a world leading truck brand. Many were

farm workhorses, purchased second hand after time as a

business work vehicle, like the 1969 J1 Bedford that Ross

took over with the family farm in Fairlie.

Purchased new by Timaru wool buyers McNees, the

Bedford was sold to Ross’s father at the end of 1972.

“Dad used the truck around the farm and to cart wool

from Fairlie to Timaru,” explains Ross.

At lambing time, chains were needed on the back

wheels as the truck was too heavy in the front and too

light in the rear for the paddocks, which were still wet

from rain and snow. The truck has a saver/back for

lifting sheep (a mechanism for saving farmers’ backs).

Ross sat his heavy vehicle licence in the Bedford.

When empty it was just underweight so legal to drive

on his car licence. He suggested to the traffic officer, that

they collect some bags of seed from Dalgety’s store to

make the truck heavier and was told not to bother, he

could sit his licence in the truck it as it was.

The Bedford has a very thirsty 3½ litre, 6-cylinder

petrol motor. It does about fifteen miles to the gallon on

the road and five to the gallon over farm paddocks and

hills, with a road trip between Christchurch and Fairlie

costing about $80 in fuel.

According to Ross, finding first gear is a crash box while

the remaining three forward gears are synchromeshed

and the motor, which was designed for flat land, lacks

power up hills when loaded up.

“It’s got stuck a few times and needed a push or the

tractor to pull it out. We used to take it up to the skifield

because it was our only vehicle that had chains.

We could fit them quicker than people with cars. We’d

chuck a couple of bags of salt lick on the back to give it

traction,” says Ross

The truck has been reliable over the years. Given its

age, it is in good condition with a few dents and scratches

though Ross says the motor is starting to show its age.

“The Bedford’s been reliable and is usually easy to

start though we had to crank start it when we couldn’t

afford a new battery. It’s pretty basic with little in the

way of creature comforts,” informs Ross who is often

approached by people who recall learning to drive in a

Bedford or using one in their job.

The J1 Bedford flat-bed truck has served on the family

farm for over forty years. It was the only truck Ross’

father owned so when he and Alice moved to Selwyn

the truck came too. He still uses it but wonders if it is

time the J1 Bedford went home to Fairlie, to retire to the

Fairlie Museum.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Experts in auto electrical work

Newlands Auto Electrical are

located at 825 Jones Road.

Newlands have a wide range of automotive parts.

With Newlands Auto Electrical handy

in Rolleston, there is no need to drive into

town if you need auto electrical work carried

out on your vehicle.

With Newlands Auto Electrical handy

in Rolleston, there is no need to drive into

town if you need auto electrical work carried

out on your vehicle.

While auto electrical work is a core part of

their business, Newlands are also experts in

air conditioning and radio communications,

making for a diverse business that serves a

wide range of customers.

Newlands carry a range of LED lighting

that includes: 4WD light bars; directional

and standard rear lighting for vehicle and

trailer brakes and indicators; courtesy

LED lighting that is perfect for campers,

caravans, buses and other vehicles needing

this kind of lighting; and LED lighting for

the agricultural commercial sector.

They have their own line of LED lighting

products that have Philips brand parts so

quality assured, and have direct buying

ability for the Hella and Narva brands. This

means that they can offer quality fittings at

competitive prices.

In their retail shop, you will also find a

wide range of automotive products such

as batteries, power tools, hand tools,

communication equipment, electrical

products and windscreen wiper blades. If

they do not have what you are looking for

in stock, they will endeavour to get it in the

same day or at least the next day. They will

even deliver to customers who are located

not too far away.

If you have noticed that your vehicle’s air

conditioning has not been functioning that

well over summer then now is a good time

to have it serviced so that it is ready for next

summer and your heater functions correctly

over winter.

Recently, Newlands purchased the latest

technological top-of-the-line digital battery

tester, which allows them to safely check

your battery in only a few minutes and

without even having to disconnect the

battery. Worth a check with cooler weather

on its way, something tired old batteries do

not like!

Your wiper blades also need to be up

to scratch for the damper weather. These

generally last around a year so if your wiper

blades are leaving streaks on the windscreen

then it is time to get new ones. Newlands can

supply you with new wiper blades and carry

out a pre-winter check of your vehicle. They

will even make a check of your wiper blades

part of your WOF inspection saving you the

hassle of this job; just another service they

provide.

Newlands have a solid team of

experienced electrical technicians as well

as a radio communications engineer and

parts salespeople. It means that all your auto

electrical needs can be taken care of quickly

and efficiently, especially as this company

has over 80 years’ experience in the business.

You can contact Newlands Auto

Electrical at Rolleston on 03 347 3476 or

0800 152771, or call by between 8am and

5pm, Monday to Friday. They will be only

too happy to assist you with your needs.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Design & practicality apparent in

new show home

A must see is Artisan Homes’ new

show home in Prebbleton.

From the rustic wood/stone front

fence and superior landscaping to the

quality workmanship and features

throughout, you will be inspired by

what Artisan Homes has created.

On entering this 246 square metre

house, the wide tiled entryway that

accesses the living area and hall to the

four bedrooms, sets the scene for what

follows.

Throughout, sensibility and

innovation go together to offer a truly

comfortable and very liveable family

home that would equally suit a couple.

Modelled on Artisan’s Modena

design, the show home illustrates how

plans can be adapted to fit particular

building sites, as well as individual

needs, preferences and budget.

“We wanted to demonstrate how a

house design need not be restrictive

and changes can be made to create an

ideal home for each client,” explains

Rob Jones, owner of Artisan Homes.

There is open plan living with a

lounge/media room adjacent. The

galley kitchen is spacious and has top of

the line fittings with a larger oven and

convection cooktop, granite benchtop

and convenient pantry. Moving back

into the living space, there is a study

nook and plenty of room for living and

dining.

Large sliders in the living and lounge

areas access a timber deck. This has

been constructed from top of the

line, Purple Heart wide-board timber,

providing a pleasant and sheltered spot

to enjoy breakfast or relax with a coffee

or wine.

The master bedroom is roomy and

private, with a well thought out walkin

robe that has a full length mirror

while the luxurious ensuite comes

complete with wet-room shower. Large

sliders lead from this room to a second

hardwood deck overlooking the back

garden.

The main bathroom emits a feeling

of opulence with a free-standing bath,

wide vanity and tiled shower and the

toilet has its own washbasin, offering

convenience for guests and those living

in the home.

It is clearly evident that considerable

thought has gone into this show home.

There are the finer details like sensor

lights that automatically turn on when

one enters a ‘little room’ and superior

features such as the high quality joinery

and fittings, extra heavy duty carpet,

porcelain floor tiles, security system

and schist stone featured entryway.

The show home exemplifies

innovation and energy efficiency, points

that Rob says were important when

designing the home. They have chosen

thermally broken joinery and low-E

argon gas filled glass windows, a two

cassette heat pump system, and large

double garage with fully insulated walls

and door so is ideal for a workbench or

gym equipment.

Whether looking to build or just

wanting ideas it is worth a visit to

Artisan Homes’ new show home at 72

Blakes Road in Prebbleton.

The show home is open for viewing

on weekends, 12noon-4pm. For

more information, telephone 374

9172, Rob at 021 324 876, email:

robin@artisanhomes.co.nz, or check

Artisan Homes’ website at: www.

artisanhomes.co.nz.

Matt and Kim love spending

time outdoors.

So we designed them a home that

maximises their indoor-outdoor flow.

The Best Kept Secrets

to Selling Your Home

Selling Secret #1: The first

impression is the only impression

No matter how good the interior of your

home looks, buyers have already judged

your home before they walk through the

door. You never have a second chance to

make a first impression. It’s important

to make people feel warm, welcome and

safe as they approach the house. Spruce

up your home’s exterior with inexpensive

shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry

ways are also important. You use it as a

utility space for your coat and keys. But,

when you’re selling, make it welcoming by

putting in a small bench or a vase of freshcut

flowers.

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready

to show

Your house needs to be “show-ready” at

all times – you never know when your

buyer is going to walk through the door.

You have to be available whenever they

want to come see the place and it has to

be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave dishes in

the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out,

the bathrooms sparkling and make sure

there are no dust bunnies in the corners.

It’s a little inconvenient, but it will get your

house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen

comes first

You’re not actually selling your house,

you’re selling your kitchen – that’s how

important it is. The benefits of remodeling

your kitchen are endless, and the best

part of it is that you’ll probably get 85%

of your money back. It may be a few

thousand dollars to replace countertops

where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the

asking price if your kitchen looks dated.

The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen

updates include painting and new cabinet

hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you

can present buyers with a blank canvas

where they can start envisioning their own

style. If you have a little money to spend,

buy one fancy stainless steel appliance.

Why one? Because when people see one

high-end appliance they think all the

rest are expensive too and it updates the

kitchen.

Selling Secret #4: Take the home

out of your house

One of the most important things to

do when selling your house is to depersonalize

it. The more personal stuff in

your house, the less potential buyers can

imagine themselves living there. Get rid

of a third of your stuff – put it in storage.

This includes family photos, memorabilia

collections and personal keepsakes.

Staging simply means arranging your

furniture to best showcase the floor plan

and maximize the use of space.

Selling Secret #5: Don’t overupgrade

Quick fixes before selling always pay off.

Mammoth makeovers, not so much. You

probably won’t get your money back if you

do a huge improvement project before you

put your house on the market. Instead,

do updates that will pay off and get you

top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint

on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy

some inexpensive new ones. Replace door

handles, cabinet hardware, make sure

closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets

and clean the grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the

critters

You might think a cuddly dog would

warm the hearts of potential buyers, but

you’d be wrong. Not everybody is a dogor

cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in

your home and see a bowl full of dog food,

smell the kitty litter box or have tufts of

pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give

buyers the impression that your house is

not clean. If you’re planning an open home

don’t leave your pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Play the agent

field

A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong

real estate agent. Make sure you have an

agent who is totally informed. They must

constantly monitor the multiple listing

service (MLS), know what properties are

going on the market and know the comps

in your neighborhood. Find an agent who

embraces technology – a tech-savvy one

has many tools to get your house sold.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up

Maximize the light in your home. After

location, good light is the one thing that

every buyer cites that they want in a

home. Take down the drapes, clean the

windows, change the lampshades, increase

the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the

bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what

you have to do make your house bright

and cheery – it will make it more sellable.

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty

closets

Storage is something every buyer is

looking for and can never have enough of.

Take half the stuff out of your closets then

neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers

will snoop, so be sure to keep all your

closets and cabinets clean and tidy.
