Garage rises from ashes

• By Tom Doudney

EIGHTEEN MONTHS after

it was gutted by fire, Andrew

and Judy Radford have their

Tai Tapu Motors garage back,

thanks to the good will and

many weekends of hard work by

friends and locals.

Fire ripped through the building

in September 2015, also

destroying the Radfords brand

new $50,000 Holden Colorado

ute.

The rebuild is now complete,

except for the plumbing, which

should be finished this week.

Mr Radford said about 20

friends, family and community

members with skills in building,

plumbing, drainage and electrical

work had given their time

for free over the weekends during

the last 18 months to help

rebuild the garage. The support

from the community had been

very humbling.

“When the fire happened, a

lot of farmers and other people

would turn up for a warrant

of fitness or a small repair and

tried to give me a cheque for

$500 or $1000, which I just had

arguments over and tore them

up,” he said.

“I said that anyone was more

than welcome to come and help

[build it], but I wouldn’t take

any money.”

The Radfords were left with

just $40,000 from their insurance

pay out to rebuild the

garage, due to $60,000 going on

asbestos removal and clean up

costs. •Turn to page 4

FALLING groundwater levels

around Selwyn are keeping well

drillers and pump installers busy

as they have to go deeper for water.

Pump technician Mike Taylor

said in recent weeks he has had

dozens of clients who had needed

to put in a new pump or have new

wells drilled due to their existing

ones drying up.

“Southbridge through to Irwell,

Leeston, Weedons and West

Melton seem to be the main areas

affected that I’ve come across,” he

said.

“I had one client over in West

Melton where I pulled the pump

out and the water level was almost

3m below the pump, so it has

dropped quite dramatically.”

While wells had dried up in

small areas in other years, it was

unusual for such a large area to be

affected, Mr Taylor said.

“We’re just having to go a wee bit

deeper. If they’ve got a big enough

well than we’re able to go to a

submersible type pump, otherwise

they’ve had to go to new wells.”

Early pub closing confirmed

• By Tom Doudney

A MANDATORY closing time

of 2am for Selwyn’s taverns will

come into force from July 31 –

but most publicans say they’re

not fazed.

The Local Alcohol Policy

was approved at Wednesday’s

district council meeting after

almost four years of negotiation

and dispute.

The policy will come into

effect on April 24, with the

provisions on trading hours for

licensed premises on July 31.

Taverns will be forced to close

at 2am – later than the 1am

time which had been proposed

in an earlier version of the

policy, but earlier than the 3am

time that several are currently

allowed to stay open until.

Darfield Hotel owner Ray

O’Connell said having to close

at 2am would not have much

impact on his business.

“To move from 3am to 2am is

not a big drama,” he said.

“It’s probably only busy two

or three times a year for us during

that period so we can live

without it.”

However, Prebbleton Tavern

manager Shannon Gilmore

wasn’t happy about the change.

Mr Gilmore said he didn’t

believe reducing his operating

hours by one hour would have

much impact on reducing

alcohol-related harm.

“In a country community

environment, [being able to stay

open until 3am] is extremely

handy for events and functions

and to have to now go and get

a special licence for one hour

seems to be a bit bureaucratic

and is only going to increase

costs,” he said.

He believed people who

bought their alcohol from the

supermarket and drank at home

were a more significant contributor

to alcohol-related harm

than people drinking at pubs.

But other tavern owners who

spoke to the Selwyn Times said

they didn’t mind the 2am closing

time.

Dunsandel Tavern owner

Karen Stone said her licence

was already for a 2am closing

time and the policy did not

bother her.

“Honestly, I think by 2am

people have had enough [of

drinking]. In the city it might

be different,” she said.

Her business included a cafe

and restaurant so she was not

reliant on people drinking in

the tavern for her income.

In Brief

FIRE RESTRICTIONS

Fire restrictions have been reduced

in Selwyn’s rural plains area, with

the district moving from a prohibited

to a restricted fire season.

Principal rural fire officer Douglas

Marshall said recent rain had

helped reduce the fire risk. Under

a restricted fire season, only gas

barbecues, crop residue and rubbish

fires inside contained drums are allowed

in rural areas. Any other fires

can only be lit if a permit has been

obtained from the district council.

CAR CRASH VICTIM DIES

A woman has died after a crash

between two cars on State Highway

73, near Lake Pearson, on Sunday.

Police were alerted to the crash at

5pm. The woman had been trapped

in her vehicle and was transported

to Christchurch Hospital

by helicopter but didn’t survive her

injuries. Three other people received

injuries in the crash but none were

life-threatening.

CAR SEATS

The district council is partnering

with SeatSmart to offer a recycling

programme for expired or damaged

car seats. Selwyn parents can take

their unwanted car seats to the

Pines Resource Recovery Park for

a discounted charge of $5. Until

June, the district council is offering

a collection point at Rolleston and

subsidising the processing cost.

Lagoon benefits from new role

A NEW biodiversity officer has

been tasked with increasing the

abundance and variety of native

wildlife in a key Selwyn catchment.

The district council has signed

a memorandum of understanding

with Living Water, the Department

of Conservation’s 10-year, $20 million

partnership with Fonterra.

Through the Living Water

partnership Fonterra and DOC

are working with dairy farmers,

iwi, conservation groups, councils,

schools and other agencies to

improve the health of five key

catchments in significant dairying

regions throughout the country.

The Ararira/LII catchment of

Te Waihora /Lake Ellesmere is

one of the five Living Water catchments.

Under the MOU, Living Water is

helping the district council fund its

Wells dry up

over a large area

•From page 1

An Environment Canterbury

spokeswoman said

wells up to 20m deep, mostly

in the Selwyn Waihora zone,

were being affected.

She said while irrigation

contributed to the situation,

groundwater levels were very

low this summer after three

consecutive winters with

little rainfall to replenish the

aquifers.

“There are full irrigation

restrictions on all takes

from the Selwyn River,” the

spokeswoman said.

“Many groundwater takes

are on partial restriction and

all deep groundwater takes

have restrictions on their annual

volumes. This has been

the situation since November

2015.”

District councillor Debra

Hasson recently sought

answers from ECan after six

shallow wells downstream

from Lincoln University’s

Ashley Dene farm had gone

dry within two months of a

new 160m bore on the farm

coming into operation.

Cr Hasson wanted to

know why the university

SELWYN TIMES

was granted consent in 2014,

when the zone was already

over-allocated.

ECan team leader for

consents Sam Beaumont said

the university had simply

transferred an already consented

water allocation from

one bore, near the corner of

Springs Rd and Gerald St, to

the new Ashley Dene bore.

“Every time someone

comes to do that, we make

sure we are not giving out

any more water over the year,

that they are taking the same

volume they always have,”

Mr Beaumont said.

However Cr Hasson said

the new bore was taking

water from the Silverstream

drainage catchment which

connected to the dried up

wells and Coes Ford, whereas

the university’s previous

allocation had taken water

from the L2 drainage catchment.

The ECan spokeswoman

said it was difficult to say

whether the operation of the

Ashley Dene bore could have

affected the downstream

wells.

Water take under investigation

• By Tom Doudney

MEASURES TO restrict,

suspend or revoke water

take consents in a catchment

which feeds the ailing Selwyn/

Waikirikiri River will be

investigated.

The river has had record low

flows this summer and has dried

up along large stretches, including

at once popular swimming

spots such as Coes Ford.

Environment Canterbury will

look into two possible options to

help address the situation and report

back to the Selwyn Waihora

Zone Committee.

One option is that ECan could

issue a temporary water shortage

direction allowing it to restrict

or suspend taking water from the

catchment feeding the river. Under

the RMA, a water shortage

direction can be applied when

there is “a serious temporary

shortage of water” which could

not have been predicted. It would

expire after 14 days but could be

renewed.

ECan chief operating officer

Don Rule said this could potentially

affect up to 63 consents in

an area south of Rolleston, of

which about 46 were thought

to have a strong connection to

the river. It was not known how

many of these consents were

already on restrictions.

The other option which will be

looked at is a potential ratepayerfunded

review of “at the very

least” several hundred water take

consents in the vicinity of the

river but Mr Rule said this would

be a longer process.

Such a review would enable

ECan to look at whether any

consents should be altered or

revoked.

“The focus would be on surface

and shallow ground water takes

initially,” Mr Rule said.

“Based on my experience,

consent reviews would certainly

not affect this irrigation season,

at best they would apply to next

irrigation season and history

would say even that might be

problematic.”

Both options would be open

to challenge in the Environment

Court.

Zone committee chairman

Allen Lim supported ECan

investigating the measures but

said it needed to be remembered

that climate was the main factor

affecting the current state of the

river.

“If you have to attribute the

amount of effect on the Selwyn

River level, all the science that we

know of says that 15 - 20 per cent

is attributed to irrigation, the rest

of it is just climate,” Mr Lim said.

District councillor and zone

committee member Murray

Lemon said restricting or suspending

water takes via a water

shortage direction would seem

like a “huge experiment to take

with someone’s livelihood” if it

was not certain whether it would

have an effect on the river or not.

Meeting to

discuss

river condition

• By Tom Doudney

A PUBLIC meeting for those

concerned about the state of

the Selwyn/Waikirikiri River

will be held at the Springston

South Soldiers Memorial Hall on

Thursday.

The ‘Talk for Water’ will take

place from 7-9pm at the hall

which is at 433 Days Rd.

Organiser and Springston

South resident Mike Glover said

it was hoped the meeting would

help mobilise people into action.

“A lot of people are just beaten

down by the whole thing and

feeling pretty depressed about

it,” he said.

A panel featuring residents, as

well as representatives from Fish

and Game, Environment Canterbury

and others, will present

views and answer questions.

Mr Glover said people

were welcome to bring river

memorabilia such as photos,

paintings, stuffed trout or

anything else to the meeting.

If possible, these should be

dropped off between 5 and 6 pm

or by arrangement.

Anyone with questions should

phone Mr Glover on 329 5079 or

Bar hours not related to rape culture

District

councillor

Craig

Watson

writes in

response

to medical

officer of

health

Alistair Humphrey’s

comments on Selwyn’s

Local Policy, which was

passed on Wednesday with

later maximum closing

hours for taverns than had

initially been proposed.

Dr Humphrey said that

every time someone in

Selwyn died in a car crash,

was assaulted or raped

“because someone has

had that extra bit of booze

at that time of night is

something that I hope will

weigh on the consciences

of those who made that

decision to push it out for

an extra hour”

I want to start by saying that

I have not been lobbied by a

single person before speaking

and voting on the Local Alcohol

Policy. I was disgusted to read

Alistair Humphrey’s comments

in the Selwyn Times (March 7).

I want to tell a bit about my

time as a student, training at

the University of Otago in

Wellington. I remember going

out with mates until 1, 2, 3, 4am

in the morning, heck I even

remember a couple of times

leaving a bar when the sun came

up.

I grew to appreciate the

fantastic kebabs for sale on my

walk back to Newtown, even

if half the time I woke up with

them all over my shirt the next

day. I remember pole dancing

with traffic lights on the way

home, singing karaoke like the

worst ever contestant for New

Zealand’s got Talent, going for

a wee in the Basin Reserve and

sometimes waking up with a hell

of a hangover.

But what I do not remember

doing on those fantastic nights

out where I was drinking past

1am was raping someone.

Alcohol does not make you a

rapist, drugs do not make you

a rapist, a girl kissing you and

letting you walk her home does

not make you a rapist, heck a

woman wearing not much more

that a Band-Aid for a dress does

not permit nor make you a rapist.

Not understanding what consensual

sex means makes you a

rapist, stupefying a woman and

forcing yourself on them makes

you a rapist and not understanding

that no means no makes you

a rapist.

It is inflammatory, provocative

and inaccurate that he would

define that a bar closing at 2am,

3am or indeed not at all is somehow

permitting a rape culture as

opposed to a bar that closes at

midnight, 1pm or 10pm.

Dr Alistair

Humphrey

responds to

Watson’s

opinion:

•In New Zealand, one half

of all violent crimes involve

Lincoln’s Bede

Cordes writes about the

Government’s recent

confirmation that Lincoln will

get a second primary school

in 2019

Could the Selwyn Times or

Ministry of Education please clarify

and confirm that the proposed

‘new’ primary school at Lincoln as

mentioned in the Selwyn Times

article on March 7 is to be a new

stand-alone school from the existing

Lincoln Primary? Three options

were put to those of us in the

community who participated in a

survey some time ago; those being

for a new ‘stand-alone’ school, a

satellite of the existing primary, or

splitting the school over two sites. I

expect if a board of trustees is to be

elected, it will stand-alone? Could

the Ministry of Education please

confirm this?

The Ministry of Education’s

head of sector enablement

and support Katrina Casey

responds

Following community engagement,

the preferred option was a

new year 1-8 primary school in

the Lincoln area. The majority of

participants rated this as their most

preferred option. Last week, the

Minister announced a new year

1-8 primary school for Lincoln, to

be provisionally known as Lincoln

South Primary School. Lincoln

South Primary School will be a full

primary school (year 1-8) and not a

satellite of an existing school.

Double drama for Lincoln

High School productions

• By Tom Doudney

LIFE IN Nazi Germany and

child poverty in late 19th

century Dunedin are the subjects

of Lincoln High School’s two

major senior drama productions

this year.

Year 12 and 13 drama students

are busy rehearsing for the plays,

which will be staged in the

school hall next month.

The year 12 students will be

performing Fear and Misery

of the Third Reich by Bertold

Brecht.

Brecht’s series of interconnected

playlets describe events

which took place in German

households in the 1930s. They

dramatise the suspicion and

anxiety experienced by ordinary

people, particularly Jewish citizens,

as the power of Hitler grew.

Two performances with different

casts will take place on April

6, at 6pm and 8pm.

The year 13 students will be

performing Children of the Poor

by Mervyn Thompson.

Thompson’s adaptation of

John A Lee’s 1934 novel follows

the formative years of the autobiographical

Albany Porcello,

a disillusioned adolescent who

comes face-to-face with desperate

poverty, misery, crime and

the contempt of Presbyterian

THEATRE: Year 12 students Alexis Grosvenor (above left),

Claire Broughton, Libby Duncan, Fleur Neill and Kyle Cossey

rehearse a scene from Fear and Misery of the Third Reich. Year

13 student Callum Lyall (below) plays a chaplain.

Dunedin.

Children of the Poor is an

ensemble play with musical elements.

The script uses theatrical

devices, including direct narration,

chorus and physical theatre,

to confront the audience with

Porcello’s tale of poverty and

hardship.

Again, there will be two performances

with different casts.

These will be on April 11, at 6pm

and 8pm.

Tickets to any of these performances

are $5 and can be

purchased from the school office.

Door sales will also be available.

SCHOOLS

LINKED UP: Some genuine police handcuffs made playing

cops and robbers more realistic on Thursday for West

Rolleston Primary School pupils, Jasmine (above left), India,

Israel, Quinn, Xavier and Athena. The new entrant pupils

recently had a visit from Constable Blair Croucher. They learnt

about how police officers help people and the importance of

being safe in the car and walking to school. As well as trying

out the handcuffs, they also got to sit in the police car and hear

the sirens, and Constable Croucher recorded how fast the

children could run using his laser.

DRESS UP: Xavier and India got to try on some of Constable

Croucher’s uniform. Meanwhile, Maddison and Sophia found

out what it’s like to sit in a police car.

Sick bed to City2Surf

TURNAROUND: Leanne Crawford has put poor

health behind her and is looking forward to the

City2Surf.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

• By Gabrielle Stuart

JUST A year ago, Leanne Crawford could

barely walk, had lost 30kg, was constantly

sick, and had to put both her work and her

wedding on hold – and she had no idea what

was going wrong.

This month, she will take on the 14km The

Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate

event, which she will walk, and she won’t

be doing it alone.

Her partner, friends and many of the

nurses who helped her get on her feet

again plan to do the walk beside her –

41 people in total – raising money to

help others with the same condition

get treatment.

The 30-year-old began feeling sick

in 2014, but initially doctors did not

know what was wrong.

It took almost two years for her to

be diagnosed and find a treatment,

because she was facing a complex

mix of parasites in her intestines,

crohn’s disease and endometriosis.

For much of that time she couldn’t

work, and she had to postpone her

wedding three times.

“It was like my life was turned

upside down. It was really, really

frightening just not knowing what

was going on,” she said.

After a Christchurch gastroenterology

specialist, Steven Ding, diagnosed

her problems, she has made a

gradual recovery.

But she said it was only possible because

of the help she received, and the diagnosis

tools provided by the Canterbury Bowel and

Liver Trust.

“The things that finally got me well cost a

lot of money, so I wanted to give something

back,” she said.

She has already raised almost $1500

through people sponsoring her run.

She said she had never done anything like

the City2Surf before, and after being sick

for so long being able to cross the finish line

would feel like a giant victory.

“I’m sure there will be tears,” she said.

“I finally feel like I’ve got my life back. I

can’t go for drinks or dinner like normal,

but I am still able to work, which is amazing.”

She works for Bupa as an activity organiser,

and said they held her job for her, in

spite of the fact she was off work for three

months.

She has also rescheduled her wedding, and

plans to marry her partner of eight years,

Craig Corboy, this December.

“I’m determined I’m going to get down the

aisle this time,” she said.

Mingha Bluff

realignment

delayed until

next year

THE NEW Zealand Transport

Agency says a wet alpine

summer means the Mingha Bluff

realignment project will now

be completed by the end of next

summer.

The $22 million project on State

Highway 73, between Greyneys

Shelter and Rough Creek near

Arthur’s Pass Village, was initially

expected to be finished by the end

of this month.

NZTA highways manager Colin

Knaggs said the project was about

80 per cent complete.

“While we’re disappointed

with the delay, contractors have

worked hard to get to this point

and we can’t control the weather,”

Mr Knaggs said.

“As people on the West Coast

know, it has been a very wet summer

and this has created delays in

the final surfacing of the road.

“With winter approaching, the

plan is to lay a temporary seal

over the unfinished sections. This

will protect the project over the

winter months. We will lay the

final seal and put the finishing

touches on the project when

the weather allows in summer

2017/18.”

Range of events thrill children

MORE THAN 2000 people

turned out for the Selwyn

Parenting Network’s annual

children’s day event, held recently

at the Rolleston Community

Centre and reserve.

The purpose of the event is

for families and communities

to come together and celebrate

the children in their lives with a

range of free activities.

Families were treated to a free

sausage sizzle, courtesy of Ray

White, and fresh fruit supplied

by Healthy Harvest, and the ice

blocks sponsored by Rolleston

New World were in hot demand.

The Cancer Society was on site to

hand out plenty of sunblock.

Many of the children that

tested their speed against the

police laser were then able to cool

down under the spray of the fire

hose, and plenty of adults were

tempted to join in the fun under

the hot sun.

DJ Chris Martin was the MC,

entertaining the crowd with

humour and music. The event’s

opening act was the Burnham

School kapa haka group.

Josh Grimaldi had plenty of

young volunteers to chose from

to assist him with his magic

show, and Lolytwist worked tirelessly

to keep up with demand for

her balloon creations.

HOT DEMAND: Children cool down under the fire hose.

ROLLING THE DICE: Rolleston’s Elme Pieterse, 9, and Cydney

van der Merwe, 6, try out giant snakes and ladders.

There were also pony rides

and farm animals to cuddle,

including a rat, and craft and play

activities. Have-a-go activities

included House of Bricks Lego,

the Fun on Wheels trailer, giant

games, a tumbling and flips clinics

and a golf driving range.

Selwyn Parenting Network

funding and marketing co-ordinator

Kimberlee Woods said the

group wanted families to focus

on the core values of children’s

day and regularly practice giving

time, praise and encouragement,

listening and talking, love and

affection, and new experiences to

children.

HANDS UP: Josh Grimaldi had plenty of young volunteers to

chose from to assist him with his magic show.

Scholarship boost for student

GRATEFUL:

Sarah Lockhart

says the $5000

Ravensdown

Hugh Williams

Scholarship

will go a long

way towards

helping her

complete her

degree. ​

LINCOLN University

student Sarah Lockhart

is this year’s recipient of

the Ravensdown Hugh

Williams Scholarship.

Lockhart, 19, is currently

in her second year of study

towards a Bachelor of Agricultural

Commerce.

She said the $5000 scholarship

money would go

a long way in helping her

complete her degree.

“Everyone knows the

expenses at university can

add up, especially when

you’re living away from

home, so it was pretty awesome

to receive the phone

call telling me that most of

my fees would be paid by

the scholarship,” she said.

The scholarship was established

to commemorate

the service and dedication

of the late Hugh Williams,

who was a Ravensdown

director from 1987-2000.

One scholarship is awarded

each year and the successful

applicant receives

$5000 for each year of

study remaining. In addition,

the recipient is offered

the opportunity of paid

holiday work at Ravensdown.

Lockhart was encouraged

to apply for the scholarship

by a friend who was

a former recipient and said

it was attractive because

of the opportunities it

provided.

Originally from a small

sheep and beef farm in

Feilding, she chose to head

south to attend university

because she wanted an

adventure.

“I went to high school in

Palmerston North and so

Massey would have been

the natural choice, especially

because my dad is a

senior lecturer there. But I

wanted to experience new

things, so I’m really glad I

made the decision to come

down to Lincoln.”

Ravensdown director

Bruce Wills said awarding

these scholarships was

about developing future

leaders in the agricultural

sector.

“We want to ensure there

is plenty of support available

to budding agricultural

professionals,” he said.

Selwyn Auto

Celebrates their first year

Selwyn Auto has been open a year and

what a year it’s been.

Lisa and Nigel Fleck have been blown away

with the support of the local community since

opening the business a year ago.

“We’d really like to thank the residents of the

Selwyn area who are now regular customers. We

have been thrilled with the response and support

shown to us in the first year and are excited now

to offer customers even more than before.”

Since opening, the Flecks have employed another

full time mechanic and have installed new

equipment to be able to broaden the services

they can offer.

The garage offers a comprehensive range of

services including WOFs, all repairs and servicing,

tyres, wheel alignment, batteries, parts and

accessories as well as auto electrical repairs. They

also have auto diagnostic code readers for those

times when your car is alerting you to a problem

you may not be aware of.

They love to fix motorbikes as well, so if your two

or four-wheeler needs a service or repair or even

new tyres – the staff at Selwyn Auto can help.

Selwyn Auto is run by workshop manager and

local Matt, who was previously foreman at the

Flecks’ other business Jones Rd Auto in Rolleston.

He brings more than 20 years experience as well

as a keen attention to detail and a friendly and

personable manner to all customers. Newest

addition Adam, who is also a local, has more than

10 years experience so you can be rest assured

that you get expertise and wonderful service

when you bring your vehicle here.

The office is run by the cheerful Catie who will

be your first point of contact. She will book your

vehicle in and let you know how your repair or

service is progressing. She is also the person to

book your courtesy vehicle – so there is no need

to worry about slowing down while your car is

being serviced or repaired.

What makes both Selwyn Auto and Jones Rd Auto

popular choices is the integrity and commitment

to top service and quality repairs that Lisa and

Nigel insist upon. This care and attention to detail

means no matter how big or small the job is, all

staff will carry out repairs or servicing with care,

ensuring your safety when you get back on the

road.

Selwyn Auto is open:

Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm.

Swapped chickens a head scratcher

• By Tom Doudney

A BIZARRE case of swapped

chickens has a lifestyle block

owner scratching his head.

Chris Lange says about a

dozen of his 32 young chickens

have been stolen and replaced

with older birds.

“I’m 110 per cent sure they

are definitely not ours,” he

said.

“I could not believe that

someone had gone and done

that.”

Mr Lange said he realised

what had happened early last

week when he went out one

evening to feed the pigs at his

Weedons property and noticed

some of the chickens had

their wings clipped, unlike his

birds.

“They are locked up in an

enclosed area, so someone has

come in here at night time with

a couple of sacks of chooks and

has dumped the old ones and

taken the young ones,” Mr Lange

said.

“Someone has obviously

decided ‘we want some new

chooks, young ones’ because

they obviously see that we sell

eggs free range at the gate. You

can see [the chickens] from the

road so someone has come over

the fence and they haven’t

had the balls to kill their old

ones.”

Mr Lange said he thought the

swap had been carried out some

time within the two weeks prior

to the evening he noticed it. He

and wife Sharon had noticed

the quantity and quality of eggs

being laid was much lower than

it had been.

The older chickens would be

killed to make way for some new

young birds.

“There is no point feeding old

chooks that don’t perform,” he

said.

He hadn’t gone to the police

because he didn’t think there

was much they could do.

They had lived on the property

for two years, since moving from

Rolleston and hadn’t had any

problems with crime apart from

the occasional theft from their

honesty box.

Union meetings

for teacher aides

and support staff

SELWYN TEACHER aides

and other school support staff

will hold paid union meetings

in Rolleston, Prebbleton and

Darfield on Thursday as part of

nationwide action over pay.

The New Zealand Educational

Institute has said the Government’s

refusal to increase school

operations funding has complicated

its negotiations with the

Ministry of Education.

NZEI considered an increase

in school operations grants to be

non-negotiable in order to cover a

pay rise for 9000 support staff in

primary and secondary schools.

Otherwise, the union has said,

many principals would be forced

to reduce staff hours or cut jobs

to compensate for the cost of any

pay rise.

NZEI support staff representative

Sue Poole said children could

lose a few hours of learning

support during the meetings, but

the goal was to plan a nationwide

campaign to ensure children

would not lose that support permanently.

“We need better funding for

better learning for our kids,” she

said.

NZEI members are requesting a

two per cent pay increase, in line

with teachers.

Lincoln skate

area planned

Explore Selwyn:

Coalgate to Glentunnel

The newly developed Glentunnel to Coalgate walkway/cycleway

connects these two small, rural townships which lie near the

Malvern Hills.

The path between the townships is two kilometres long and is flat.

It’s an easy bike ride or walk for the whole family which is suitable

for buggies, young cyclists or wheelchairs.

The walkway passes over a new bridge over a large drain near

Coaltrack Road underneath which lies historic brick arch and

cobble culvert.

At Glentunnel you can grab an ice cream at the local dairy or take a

tour of the historic buildings dotted through the township, such as

the library or the chapel. Glentunnel has a historical association with

local coalmines, potteries and brickworks of the Glentunnel/South

Malvern area. Many of the miners’ cottages are still lived in today.

Plans to develop a new skate facility for Lincoln have moved forward, with a location for the site

being confirmed and a concept plan now available to view.

The skate facility is planned outside Lincoln Event Centre at the front of the facility near the

existing play area. This location provides good visibility of the skate area, helping to improve

safety. The design includes a shallow bowl, a deeper big bowl, flat skating areas and ramp. The

design is aimed at providing spaces for both advanced, intermediate and beginner skateboarders

as well as children on scooters.

To view the concept plan for the skate area please visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay. You

can submit your comments on the draft by emailing reserves@selwyn.govt.nz by 7 April. Local

schools will also be part of the consultation process. The Council has budgeted for construction

to occur this autumn and winter.

A new skate park is also planned for West Melton next year.

Busy year ahead for Motorway project

The Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2 (CSM2) team are geared up for a busy year, as work

ramps up across this NZ Transport Agency project.

Work has started on sealing a new local road (‘Manion Road’ – built between Weedons Ross Road

and Curraghs Road), drainage and temporary road construction next to Waterholes Road and piping

the new stockwater race along Weedons Road in preparation for the new Weedons Road Interchange

to be constructed. Construction of various new internal driveways are coming along well as the team

works towards the opening of Manion Road in April 2017 which will allow the closure of accesses onto

Main South Road. Power and telecommunications cable trenching is also occurring along the project

together with vegetation clearance. There will be changes to traffic management arrangements across

the project to allow the construction team to safely carry out its work. Please remember that traffic

management controls (signs, cones, barriers and fences) are in place to keep you safe.

The lizard capture programme along with the salvage and relocation of aquatic wildlife living within

water races continues across the project.

Over the next eight months, you will notice:

· the closure of a section of Trents Road for one year with a detour in place via nearby roads

Backyard critters

Mosquitos want to suck your blood

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

The striped mosquito (aedes

notoscriptus) is an unwelcome

visitor to the backyard and is one

of more than 20 species in New

Zealand, several of which are

native.

It was first described in Sydney

in 1889 and first collected in

Auckland in 1916 and later in

Nelson in 1930.

The striped mosquito has a

South Pacific distribution, including

Australia, New Caledonia,

New Guinea and Indonesia.

It is likely that the ‘wrigglers’

or mosquito larvae arrived in

New Zealand in open containers

of water on boats, given they are

known to breed in rock pools,

ponds, discarded tyres

or containers, gutters and

even in water collected by plant

leaves.

This adult mozzie is easily

identified by its striped thorax

and legs.

The mosquito lays its eggs

at the waterline where it can

tolerate desiccation for several

months, but in ideal conditions,

egg to adult takes about two

weeks, depending on temperature.

The adults are silent fliers,

biting humans or animals from

dawn to dusk.

The females need a blood meal

for the production of eggs, which

can number up to 200 for some

species.

The striped mosquito’s bite

often causes localised swelling

and itchiness.

In Australia, it can carry serious

diseases, such as dog heartworm

or Ross River virus.

Fortunately, New Zealand

remains free of mosquito-borne

animal diseases, but a warmer

climate in future will increase

the chances of this occurring.

Finally, there are 24 days

until Lincoln’s free Bioblitz

event.

BLOOD SUCKER: As well as New Zealand, the striped mosquito is also found in Australia,

New Caledonia, New Guinea and Indonesia. It is likely that ‘wrigglers’ or striped mosquito

larvae (inset) arrived in New Zealand in open containers of water on boats.​

Field days for whole family

MORE THAN 600 exhibitors

will be at the South Island

Agricultural Field Days when

it is held for the second time at

Kirwee, this month.

The annual event, which

switches between Canterbury

and Southland each year, will

take place March 29 - 31.

It was held at the Courtenay

Rd site for the first time in 2015,

after outgrowing its previous

site at Lincoln, where it had

been based for 32 years. More

than 27,500 people attended that

event and organisers anticipate

the same number or more this

year.

Field days media spokesman

Daniel Schat said a lifestyle section

with exhibits for the whole

family would add something

new to the event.

“We have 50 exhibitors lined

up to display products ranging

from model trains and spa pools

to dog control systems and solar

water and power units.”

Other attractions would

include Farm Trader magazine’s

top tractor shootout. It will

compare variable transmission

tractors made by the world’s

leading brands. Judges will test

the tractors on a range of criteria

including performance and affordability.

PULLING A CROWD: The 2015 South Island Agricultural Field Days attracted 27,500 people and

organisers are hoping for a similar turnout this year. Inset: Rodney Hadfield ​

Two fencing competitions

will also be held, and another

event which has been popular in

the past is the Agri-Innovation

awards which recognise New

Zealand-made innovations or

inventions. Entrants are given

a chance to demonstrate their

inventions.

Mr Schat said the site had a

good crops of maize, fodder

beet, pasture and oats ready for

harvest machinery demonstrations.

“Cultivation and seeding machinery

will also be in action,”

he said.

Field days is a non-profit

organisation made up of farmers

and others in the agricultural

industry. Organising committee

chairman Rodney Hadfield said

it would not be possible without

the work of volunteers and

community groups and Friends

of the Field Days who donated

equipment and services.

He said it was a good community

fundraising opportunity for

local schools and young farmers

who helped with parking, running

the tills and the entrance,

and clean up.

Danish settler

history

celebrated

ABOUT 70 descendants of 19th

century Danish settler Peter

Sorensen gathered in Greenpark

and Akaroa recently for a family

reunion.

A gathering and exhibition

of work by Danish born woodworker

Philip van Deurs was

held at Greenpark Memorial

Community Centre, and there

were visits to various Banks Peninsula

sites associated with the

family history.

The reunion culminated with

a get-together at the Akaroa Recreation

Ground.

Many of the descendants came

from Selwyn, as well as other

parts of Canterbury, Otago and

Southland.

Some also came from the

North Island and Australia, as

well as as far afield as Wisconsin

and Vietnam.

Descendant and Lincoln

resident Adriana de Groot s

aid the reunion had gone

well.

Mr Sorensen, a carpenter, and

his wife Rasmine made the journey

from Yding, Denmark, to

Lyttelton onboard the Cardigan

Castle in 1873.

SPORTS

In Brief

CRICKET CHANGES

The Canterbury Country premier

two-day cricket final between

Weedons and Sefton will be

squeezed into one day after rain

meant no play was possible on

Saturday. The match had been

scheduled to be played over two

weekends with the conclusion

this coming Saturday. No extra

days will be scheduled to make up

for the washout but Canterbury

Country Cricket have extended

the length of play this weekend.

Play at Rangiora’s Mainpower Oval

will now start at 10.30am, instead

of 12.30pm, with a maximum of

110 overs in the day instead of the

normal 90. Usually, over two days,

180 overs would be possible.

MIDGET CARS POSTPONED

The South Island Midget Car

Championship, which had been

due to be staged on Saturday, was

rained off and will be rescheduled.

ARKING UP WINS

The Arking Up team consisting

of Sam Henderson, Greg Salter,

James Mounce and Lance Warren

were the overall winners of the

Lincoln Bowling Club’s community

competition, which finished this

month. The last night of competition

saw 30 teams of four bowlers

compete for the prize for the

round as well as the overall win.

Lincoln teen picked to

swim for New Zealand

• By Tom Doudney

A LINCOLN teenager has

been selected to represent New

Zealand at the Australian

age group swimming

championships in Brisbane

next month.

Hannah Bates, 16, will be

the only South Islander on the

team of 23 swimmers, aged

between 13 and 17.

After achieving the qualifying

time at the Southland

long course swimming championships

in Invercargill in

December, she was notified of

her selection this month.

It will be the first international

swim meet for Hannah,

who is a member of the Selwyn

Swim Club and swam at the

national level for Christchurch

Girls’ High School.

She holds seven Canterbury

and West Coast and three

South Island swimming

records in the 16 and under-16

age groups. Last year, she was a

finalist in the emerging talent

category of the New Zealand

Swimming Awards.

While in Australia, she aims

to qualify for the Commonwealth

Youth Games in the

Bahamas in July.

Hannah said she had taken

Islander representing New Zealand at the Australian age

group swimming championships in Brisbane next month.

swimming lessons since she

was six-months-old and had

never looked back.

Her mother, Susan Bates,

said because Christchurch

has not had a suitable indoor

long course (50m) pool since

QE II was wrecked by the

earthquakes, Hannah has

had to travel to events further

afield to record international

qualifying times. The only

other suitable pools were in

Dunedin, Invercargill and the

North Island and getting to

events at these venues came at

a higher financial cost.

•Hannah has a web

page set up to help raise

funds for her to compete

at swimming events.

TWO SELWYN youngsters have

just earned places in a coveted

national junior swim squad.

Darfield’s Chloe Newbigging, 12,

and Hororata’s Poppy Freeman,

8, won their age groups at the

Christchurch Crown swim held

recently at Corsair Bay. It was the

fifth event in the seven-swim, New

Zealand Ocean Swim Series.

Their wins in the 200m Ocean-

Kids event secured them both

places in the Jetstar Super Swim

Squad.

This means they will travel to

Auckland with a caregiver for a

weekend camp with some top name

elite swimmers and coaches in May.

Throughout the season, each

qualifying event allows children the

opportunity to earn a place in the

36-member squad.

The girls have both previously

participated in New Zealand Ocean

Swim Series events. Chloe entered

the 300m ‘Give it a Go’ swim in

2015, while this was Poppy’s third

event.

Chloe said she was “looking forward

to the experience and meeting

new people.”

Poppy said she “can’t wait to go

on a plane, and learn new things

about swimming.”

The Jetstar Super Swim Squad

Camp will take place in Auckland

on May 6-7.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

SELWYN TIMES

Gardening

An apple a day

Rachel Vogan says apples are easy to grow and wonderful to

eat – so why not grow your own?

REFERRED TO as the world’s

most popular fruit, apples are

one of the easiest crops to

grow.

They are often classified as

eating or dessert/cooking apples.

If room isn’t an issue try to plant

a range of apples that mature at

different times, so you can have a

long harvest period.

POLLINATION

Apples are pollinated by bees,

which move around apple and

crab apple trees (which are useful

pollinators for apple trees due to

their abundance of pollen and

long flowering period). If you

only have room for one, make

sure it’s self-fertile, or if your

neighbour has a tree or two, the

bees will move from garden to

garden to aid in fertilisation.

MAINTENANCE

Young apple trees need little

pruning other than to train

to shape until the plants have

multiple branches or when they

are starting to take up too much

space. Prune to aid air and light

movement once established after

harvesting in winter. Fertilise in

spring with a general-purpose

fruit fertiliser; avoid anything

that is exceptionally high in

nitrogen.

MULTI-GRAFTED VARIETIES

The expert horticulturalists, who

grow the trees, graft the apple

variety onto a vigorous rootstock.

These rootstocks cope with a

variety of soil types and govern

the eventual height of the tree.

Grafting is nothing new, it has

been done for centuries, and it

allows for more than one variety

to be grafted onto each rootstock.

Multi-grafted apple trees are

popular and readily available;

some even come in triple grafts,

ie three varieties of apple on one

tree.

ONES TO TRY

The list of apple trees available

is fairly long, with well over 100

different varieties from new

hybrids through to those which

came out with the first settlers.

Here are a few favourites:

• ‘Golden Delicious’, ‘Red

Delicious’ both produce large,

smooth-skinned fruit.

• ‘Braeburn’, ‘Gala’, ‘Monty’s

Surprise’ and ‘Fuji’ are all

reliable, tasty, flavoursome,

crunchy fruit with good red

colours and tones.

• ‘Granny Smith’, ‘Bramley’s

Seedling’ and ‘Baujade’ are all

green cooking-apple types.

• Big is better? ‘Peasgood

Nonsuch’ offers monster-sized

fruit.

• Low-maintenance and tasty

varieties include ‘Initial’, ‘Adore’,

‘Ariane’ and ‘Divine’, which all

produce wonderful apples, and

what is even better is that they

are disease resistant and do not

need spraying.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

• Full sun is mandatory.

• For clay-based and heavy soils,

work in grit and gypsum before

planting to help drain the soil,

or build the site up so water

will not pool around the base of

the trees.

• In light, loose, even sandy

soils, be generous and load up

with compost and well-rotted

manure. This must be worked

through the soil to ensure the

roots have something solid to

latch on to.

SWEET: Divine tastes as good as it looks, is very low

maintenance and disease-resistant.

Planting

March, April and May are great months to plant your spring bulbs. For planting in pots, barrels

and other containers, use our fantastic Patio Plus Potting Mix. With all the essential nutrients,

your bulbs will love you for it. If you are planting in the soil, make sure that you have chosen an

area that is free-draining and gets some sunlight. You don’t want the bulbs to be in an area that

pools with water in the winter.

Trees are a valuable asset to any property. Your local

garden centre will be able to help you decide on which

trees best suit your situation, and give you advice on

how to care for it. We recommend that you pick the best

products to plant your trees in, and ensure that

you provide them with plenty of water

and nutrients for them to sustain

healthy growth. Our shop is filled with

excellent growing mixes and fertilisers

for a wide range of trees, shrubs and flowers. Come down and talk to our

friendly team and we will happily point you in the right direction.

If you haven’t done so yet, it is not too late to get some top quality mulch on

your garden. Intelligro has a wide variety of options available. Have a look on

our website www.igro.co.nz or come down to our site at 1394 Main South

NEMOPHILA IS a lovely annual

that produces masses of tiny, pretty

flowers.

The individual flowers are small

and delightful, but planted on

mass, nemophila looks stunning

and striking. Google nemophila

at Hitachi Seaside Park in Japan

for a glimpse of how spectacular

nemophila can look.

Some of my favourites are snow

storm which has white flowers

with fine pencil markings, black

penny flowers are dark purple with

white edges and blue chip flowers

are blue with white centres. Blue

chip grows to a height of 20cm and

the other two to a height of 10cm.

Try growing a mix of all three or

just one variety to create a strong

statement.

In addition to mass planting,

they look lovely in pots, containers,

borders, baskets and rock gardens.

Once you’ve got your seedlings

simply plant each one around 25cm

from the next in a spot that has full

sun or part shade and moist soil.

In around four weeks you can

expect to see your nemophila

put on their show. Water them

regularly and you’ll help keep the

flower show going longer. NOTICE PLENTIFUL: OF LOCAL Snow TRANSITION storm in PERIOD a pot produces masses of individual flowers.

REGISTRATION OF INTEREST

MINISTERIAL APPOINTMENTS

TO THE ESTABLISHMENT BOARD OF TRUSTEES

LINCOLN SOUTH PRIMARY SCHOOL

CHRISTCHURCH

On 2 March 2017 the Minister announced a new Year 1-8

primary school for Lincoln, to be provisionally known as Lincoln

South School.

The new school will initially be governed by an establishment

board of trustees made up of five appointed members per

board.

Registrations of Interest are invited for individuals wishing to

be considered for appointment as trustees on this board. An

establishment board would be in place until board elections are

held in 2019.

An establishment board will develop the new school’s charter,

and have limited influence on school design. It will also

appoint the principal and staff, and work with its community to

build a vision and school culture which supports learning and

achievement for all its students.

Applicants should preferably have knowledge and experience

of schools and/or school governance. They need to work well

in a team, be able to put plans in place for the school’s future,

have good communication skills and represent the diversity

of the school’s students. The overriding focus and objective

of effective trusteeship is the quality of education that the

students are receiving.

For more information and an application package please

contact Linda Youl on (03) 378 7772 or email

linda.youl@education.govt.nz.

Applications, with a copy of a current CV and completed

Double Glazing

makes a

home warmer

Heat is retained in winter and kept out in

summer while condensation and noise from

outside are reduced.

Modern double glazed windows and

doors are more effective than their

earlier counterparts and far superior

to single glazing which allows heat to

escape through the glass even when

there are thermal curtains.

Double glazing works in much the

same way as a thermos flask where the

silver surface on the inner glass lining

reflects back the temperature of its

contents. Heat is retained in winter and

kept out in summer while condensation

and noise from outside are reduced.

Overseas, triple glazing is very

popular while double glazing is more

common in New Zealand. Both have a

gap between the layers of glass resulting

in less heat transference. The wider the

gap, the more warmth is retained in the

home with less chance of condensation.

The technology around double and

triple glazing has advanced significantly

over the years leading to greater

efficiency though not all products

are equal with the insulation ratings

varying between the various market

options.

Ratings depend on the components

used and how the windows and doors

are constructed. Factors are the type

and emissivity of the glass and width

between the panes. Products with

an Energy Star have better thermal

performance.

Low-emissivity (low-e) glass, limits

the amount of ultra violet and infrared

light transmitted through the glass; the

lower the level, the more reflective the

glass reducing heat loss by twenty to

thirty percent. The result is a warmer

home in winter while the sun is

reflected back keeping the heat out and

the home cooler in summer.

The minimum air space between each

pane of glass in a double glazed window

is usually ten to sixteen millimetres.

Twelve millimetres is recommended for

warmer parts of New Zealand while the

optimum for Canterbury is from fifteen

to seventeen millimetres.

A step up is argon gas filled windows;

an economic and natural gas. Argon

gas is heavier than air so affords three

to nine percent greater insulation than

air filled double glazing and improved

sound proofing. The window or door

unit is completely sealed so perfectly

safe and the gas used for residential

windows is non-toxic. It is also used in

retrofitted windows to increase energy

efficiency especially where the gap

between the glass panes needs to be less

than usual to fit into an existing timber

window frame.

Double glazing is now standard in

new homes with additional options

like argon gas and low-e glass filled

windows becoming increasingly

popular due to the increased benefits

they offer, especially as the additional

funds invested are said to be quickly

recouped by the energy savings made.

If building or renovating, it is worth

investigating the options on the market

and budget permitting, choosing

windows and doors that not only look

good but also offer high performance in

terms of heat retention, noise reduction,

deflection of the effects of the sun and

reduced condensation.

Modern double glazing is more

effective than earlier counterparts.

Low-E argon gas filled glass windows

offer greater thermal performance.

Double glazing retains heat.

Less outside noise penetrates double

glazed windows.

Double glazing lets the light in while

deflecting the sun’s heat.
